Blurb

I love him.
I love him even during those moments.
Those aching moments he can’t stand to feel.

I know everything about brains, but nothing about hearts.

Love isn’t in my future. Romance isn’t in my cards. I focus on my job and nothing else. Neurosurgery doesn’t play well with distraction, anyway. If only my meddling, matchmaking Mom would get the hint.

Accepting a move to Baker’s Creek, getting off her radar and away from any eligible bachelors that she knows should keep me safe, right?

Wrong.

I might not want a boyfriend but I do have a type: broody, angsty, and quiet. And there’s one of those living in this small town.

Vance Aldridge.

He’s a military man who’s numbed himself to the point of no return. He’s been forced to choose between love and family one too many times, and I just saved the life of his baby brother.

He fascinates me far beyond his chiseled good looks. I want to know how he thinks, what makes him tick, and if I can make him smile…

But can I learn to read his mind without giving away my heart?

The Baker’s Creek Billionaire Brothers series is a fun and flirty saga that combines sweet stories with sensual heat. This is a gay male contemporary romance that’s sure to make your heart swoon.

A nice “no relationship drama” MM romance in this mainstream BILLIONAIRE series

YoursToKeep AMAZONYours to Keep by Claudia Y. Burgoa

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

I picked up this ARC because I like to support any author who is willing to include an MM romance within a mainstream MF series and, on the whole, I enjoyed it.

As this was the sixth, and final, one in a six book series, I’m pretty sure I was missing out on some of the nuances.

But, overall, it worked fairly well as a standalone.

It wasn’t a higher rated read for me because of a couple of reasons.

Firstly, the steam level. There’s one on page blowjob, one on page full on sex scene and then everything else is referenced off page.

This could be the author’s style, as I said, I haven’t read any others in the series.

However, my preference is for the growing trust and emotional vulnerability which comes from a point in the relationship where you’ve connected with the other enough to reach that level of intimacy, should be on page.

It always leaves me feeling disconnected from the relationship when I’m reading they’re being intimate or just releasing sexual tension with a hot fuck but I’m not seeing it. YMMV here.

The second element was the rest of the plot. It was a bit hard to swallow tbh and I’m not going to spoil it for others, but I’d have to say that I was suspending an awful lot of disbelief.

I think this is fairly common in the billionaire trope though 😁

Still, there were cute bits too. Including how they fell for each other while protesting that they didn’t ‘catch feelings’.

And I liked the small town vibes. I also liked that there was no relationship drama or stupid miscommunication between Dare and Vance.

So, on balance, good but nothing out of the ordinary. I would read another MM from this author though.

An absolutely gorgeous romance and perfect for Harlequin’s Special Edition line

57623809._SY475_The Lights on Knockbridge Lane by Roan Parrish

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is such a gorgeous romance and it makes my heart so happy that it will be the first ever gay romance in Harlequin’s Special Edition line.

It’s the perfect story for a Christmas romance, it’s full of warmth, it’s heavy on the meaning of family and supporting those you love, even if they don’t fit in with what society thinks is normal.

There’s also a gentle heat to it, and a strong message that it’s okay to be different, as is often the case with Roan’s books.

It has characters who don’t follow the crowd, Wes is unashamedly out there will his passion for biodiversity, for bugs and insects, lizards and reptiles.

Gus is a delight, an eight-year-old package of inquisitiveness and confidence, but a child hiding the hurt of already being rejected by two parental figures, her own mother and the man she called Papa.

Adam was a delight, unashamedly emotional, willing to see the best in everyone and courageous enough to return to the town he left when he was 18 because he wanted his niece/daughter to be brought up close to the one family member who did care about them all.

I loved this book, it was a one shot read for me, I didn’t want to put it down until I got to the happy ending, and it’s a glorious one.

However, I will say if you’re not one for children or Christmas, the emphasis on the importance of family (whether blood or not), then this might be too much for you as it’s very much central to everything that happens.

For me, it hit all the things I want in a festive narrative and then some. Plus it was nice to catch up with some of the other guys from the Garnet Run series too.
