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.

#ARC kindly received from the author via Valentine PR in return for an honest and unbiased review.

Blurb

Reformed gang boss Dante Pope is out after a four-year stretch in prison. But freedom has found him faster than he’s ready for. His only brother hates him, and with nothing but PTSD and a newfound fascination with plants for company, the outside world is a terrifying place.

A prisoner rehabilitation scheme lands him at a stately home that might as well be the moon. Working for gorgeous gardener Sid is a welcome distraction—his shoulders are broad, his rugged jaw unshaven, and his long, tanned legs?

Wow.

But Sid has problems of his own. A life-changing disease has left him limited in ways he can’t bear and accepting help, even from a stranger, makes him want to curl up and die.

If Dante would let him.

Newsflash: he won’t, and he’s not a stranger for long. With his dark smile and sinister ink, Dante Pope is the most beautiful man Sid has ever seen. Life is hard, but falling for each other is easy.

Sunshine and shadows.

Old ghosts can haunt Dante all they like. Loving Sid is the only salvation he’ll ever need.

Salvation is a sweetly angsty standalone MM romance novel in the Darkest Skies series. Expect: second chances, forced proximity, friends-to-lovers, and buckets of hurt/comfort themed loveliness. Content warnings for childhood trauma, violence, and chronic illness.
