inevitable cover

Blurb

The three of us were never impossible. We were always inevitable.

When Drew meets Ezra, he doesn’t expect much. A one-night stand and a quick goodbye in the morning. That’s how these things usually go. Only there’s nothing usual about Ezra and the connection that forms between them.

When Ezra meets Drew, he doesn’t expect much. A distraction and parting as strangers after a night of meaningless fun. That’s how these things usually go. Only there’s nothing meaningless about Drew and the relentless spark between them that just refuses to disappear.

When Bas meets Ezra… things get complicated. As if being hopelessly in love with his best friend isn’t painful enough. Throw in an unexpected friendship that develops with the one-time hookup of said best friend, and the results are messy at best.

But sometimes beautiful things emerge from messy and complicated beginnings, and where two isn’t enough, three might be just perfect.

Teaser

“Wow. Hot.” Bas tilted his head up and murmured the words into Drew’s ear. And just because he was Bas, he also took his sweet time giving Ezra a slow once over.

“That’s him,” Drew said.

Bas’s brows shot up as he concentrated his attention back on Drew. “Ezra?”

Another spike of lust shot through Drew’s body at the way Bas’s tongue curled around the name, managing to make the word sound like a dirty promise.

“Yeah.”

“Go talk to him.”

Drew pulled away to stare at Bas. “What?”

Bas peered over Drew’s shoulder at Ezra. “And better hurry. It doesn’t look like he’s planning to stick around.”

Drew whirled back toward Ezra, and as if on que, saw the back of Ezra’s head as the man made his way toward the exit through the crowd.

“Go.” Bas was laughing as he gave Drew a push.

About The Author

Briar Prescott is a work in progress. She swears too much, doesn’t eat enough leafy greens and binge watches too much television. It’s okay, though. One of these days she’ll get a hang of that adulting thing.

Probably.

Maybe.

She hopes.

I absolutely loved this slow burn college sports romance

55846156._SY475_Home Plate by Christina Lee

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely loved this slow burn, complicated and a wee bit angsty sports romance.

The second in Christina’s Easton U series, it was a beautifully paced and completely organic frenemies to lovers’ relationship with just the right amount of UST.

I thought I might get frustrated at Maclain’s inability to deal with his feelings for Girad, but in actually, I empathised more and more.

His stepfather was an utter dick, and what made it worse was that it wasn’t deliberately done. He was just thoughtless and should have done more to live up to his promise to Mason’s mum to always take care of him.

On the other side of the pairing, Dominic’s family were awesome and I loved how they had no hesitation on accepting his bisexuality or his feelings for Mason.

The Epilogue is just so lovely I had big heart eyes when reading it 😁

I’ve no clue who might be next though if there is another book coming!

This is a sweet and gentle romance in the Clean Slate series

53934667Right Move by A.M. Arthur

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is another one in which the lack of a direct conversation could have removed much of the uncertainty over the relationship’s future.

However, that’s not the primary driver in the narrative and so it didn’t bother me as much as it has in some of the other instalments in the Clean Slate Rance series.

What does drive the plot is actually a really sweet and heartfelt examination of the strength it takes to move on from trauma.

Both Levi and George have suffered from significant incidents in their past, which causes them to have a hesitancy about being able to move on.

I really appreciated the time A.M. took to build up the trust and security that each felt with the other as they went from friendship to relationship.

There is an 11 year age gap, but at no time does it feel like Levi is in a position of power or influence over George. The younger man is already taking his own steps to try and gain control back of his life when he runs into Levi again.

I’ve said in all of my reviews for this series that I absolutely love the setting and, once again, the ranch and the community which has grown up around it is a central element to this story too. It really does feel like it’s a character itself.

The intro prequel chapter, while it shows the moment he found his three kittens, didn’t really give much of an insight into the past as far as it related to his wider background and the element which drove his distrust of new relationships.

We already know he went on a year long bender after the death of his younger brother as that was related in a previous book Lucky Break about his former brother-in-law Robin moving on with Shawn.

But, overall this was another solid addition to the series and I very much appreciated it took a slightly different path with the sexual element of their relationship, one which was wholly in keeping with both their backgrounds and experiences.
