This is a great story of friends to lovers. Rich is gay but his best friend does not know. Dan has been searching for 'the one' for years without luck. Both work in law enforcement. When Dan has an accident, Rich realises he could have lost him and realises his true feelings. Rich helps Dan while he...

This is one of the more realistic GFY stories I've read. Dan has trouble with his realisation that he's in love with his friend and there is more of a HFN than a HEA. Loved the angst, loved the sex, great story!

I liked this book, but not as much as the first one. Two main things kinda bothered me with this one. Dan's back and forth indecision, which was understandable and the whole storyline with Jeremy. I know that it wasn't technically cheating, but I felt that it really didn't add to the overall story...

All right. This is one of those rare cases when I end up hating (ok, "not liking" would have sounded more suave but I'm in bitch mode right now) EVERYONE in the book.Rich - You're in love with your (ostensibly) straight best friend. That doesn't mean you should let him treat you like shit and keep g...

3.5 stars. This story of a closeted cop with a crush on his straight best friend was one of the earliest m/m romances I ever read, and I like to reread it periodically.

I would give this story a 3.5 star rating.[spoiler ahead]I liked the friendship between Rich and Dan. It had a long history and they got along really well. And the slow change from friends to lovers was rather nicely done. In the sense that there were no extremes reactions to the revelations made th...

Goodreads summary is enough for the book, so I just go straight to my opinion this time ... I am never such a big fan of "gay-for-you" story. Why? Because I'm always worried that somewhere down the road, the person will think that it's just a phase rather than actual love. Though it doesn't necessar...

Too simple and a bit soap opera-ish.

From Ellora's Cave. A Helping Hand By Shayla Kersten Deputy Sheriff Rich Taylor has many secrets. His sexuality is only the top of the list. Even his best friend Dan doesn't know Rich is gay. For good reason. His feelings for Dan are more than friendship. When Dan's injured, the thought of losing hi...
