Jay’s Cornish-set romance series is my ‘happy place’

52042563._SY475_Happy Place by Jay Northcote

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I think this is my favourite one yet in this series of quite excellent romances set in a wee Cornish town and centred on an LGBTQ cafe.

Here it’s journalist Quentin’s turn to go through the angst of falling for someone and it’s a narrative which runs a full gamut of emotions.

I felt so bad for George, at 45 he still hadn’t really come to terms with either his sexuality or his sexual desires.

But in Quentin’s capable hands, the awkwardness of his first time turned into something neither was expecting.

I loved the mild kink in this book, it fit perfectly with the awakening of a man who’d repressed his feelings for years. Dirty talk really does turn my crank 😁

A little bit of friendly Interference from cafe owner Seb and these two lonely men were put firmly on the path to happiness.

I’m excited to see where Jay takes this series next.

Blurb

The most dangerous current is between them.

Training to be a lifeguard at an Australian beach is tough work, but Cody Grant loves a challenge. He spends long days in the sun and surf rescuing swimmers from treacherous rip currents while trying not to lust after senior lifeguard Liam Fox—who is deeply, painfully closeted.

Liam was supposed to be a football legend. Now in his mid-thirties, it’s been over a decade since his dream shattered along with his knee. Fans still recognize him regularly, and he’s terrified his sexuality will be discovered and his conservative parents will reject him. He has strict rules to protect his secret and keeps everyone at arm’s length. Liam never acts on his need to surrender after being shamed for it years ago by the first and only man he trusted.

Out and proud Cody fascinates Liam—and tempts him to break all the rules.

Cody is practically half Liam’s size and age, but has the confidence and compassion to take charge and give Liam the release, affection, and acceptance he desperately craves. But how long can a secret affair satisfy their hearts?

As if saving lives isn’t hard enough, Cody faces his greatest challenge yet convincing Liam to trust him and find the courage to live out loud.

Flash Rip is an MM gay romance from Keira Andrews featuring a slow burn, an age gap, scorching first times, and of course a happy ending.

Classic Ed, this has spicy and sweet in a perfect combination

Changed Hart (Harts Bay #2)Changed Hart by E. Davies

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is classic Ed Davies, it has an almost perfect mixture of sweet and spicy.

I’ve not gone for full marks in my rating only because, for me anyways, I found I was wishing Colt was just a little bit older so that I could fully embrace the whole sexual domination aspect.

That’s not to say that there is a need for an age limit to know what you want in the bedroom, or on the sofa 😉 and they definitely had loads of chemistry.

But Colt’s vulnerability in the rest of his life and his leftover anxieties and fears because of his history gave me pause when it came to this one element.

Ed certainly never made the narrative feel uncomfortable or silly, Rain and Colt just worked as a partnership as friends right from the off and I ultimately got with the programme as their relationship developed. YMMV.

The rest of the story was right up my alley though. I really like this new setting and the small town vibes and close-knit friendships.

I liked how Rain found his own inner strength to know he wanted to take a chance with Cole and I loved how the latter dealt with the big dramatic moment and found his own way of overcoming his vulnerabilities.

The split in two family arc is also fascinating for me and I can’t wait to see how that develops.
