Husband Hunters - Genevieve Gannon
  •  

Synopsis:

 

Clementine, a psychologist specialising in couples counselling, is reeling from the discovery that her boyfriend is married. Annabel, an ex-model, only seems to attract men who want her as a trophy. Daniela, a civil engineer, is stuck in the friendzone.
Abandoning the romantic notions of true love that haven't worked out for them, the three decide to use their considerable professional skills to find a partner. This isn't about hearts and flowers; it's about being practical.

Warm and witty, Husband Hunters is about what happens when you try to engineer love.

Rick. R. Reed – Husband Hunters
Husband Hunters - Rick R. Reed

Reviewer:Barb

Genre: M/M Contemporary

 

Review:
Fun! Fun! Fun! The premise is fun, the characters were fun, and the reading was fun.Even with the ups and downs the MCs go through, I found that reading this story made me happy and kept me feeling that way all day.In fact, it was darn hard to put down.How dare real life interfere with my reading time?

 

The television show “House Hunters” is so successful why not try “Husband Hunters”? When the idea seems to be a success, producers expand their geographic area and come to Seattle to stage their search for more eligible gay men—some who will be the hunter, and some the hunted. Matt talks his best friend, and secret love, Cody, into auditioning for the show.Both young men have expressed a desire to find the perfect mate, the man who will be their future husband and partner in life.Both are good-looking in a non-model sort of way, have similar likes and dislikes and spend much of their time in each other’s company.What Cody doesn’t know, and Matt is too fearful to tell him, is that Matt is head-over-heels in love with him. But he’s afraid that if he tells Cody, he’ll ruin their friendship, and his past attempts to step up the romance have failed miserably.If he can’t have Cody, then he might as well try his hand at husband hunting, and if nothing else, if Cody finds a man, it will allow Matt to move on.

 

Both men are chosen for the show, and unknown to them, the producers who chose them did so because they think that it would improve ratings to show two best friends falling in love. The hitches and glitches along the way, however, do nothing but drive a wedge between the two men.One of the producers convinces Matt to pretend he’s dropping out, asking him to distance himself from Cody in the intervening weeks, plotting that this will make it even better when Cody realizes he’s Cody’s third mystery date on the show.Against his better judgment, Matt agrees, and the resulting mess this makes of Matt’s and Cody’s relationship looks like it might be irreparable.

 

Without revealing more plot spoilers, I will say that we do get a HEA for these guys, but the author makes them work for it.And although what happens might seem simple and trite to some readers, I enjoyed the way the author managed it, making it believable and inevitable, and leaving me feeling warm and happy. And really, why else do I read?I want to enjoy the story and feel warm and happy!

 

I recommend this to all lovers of m/m romance who like a friends-to-lovers story and those who simply appreciate a romance between two average guys who might fall in love, get married, and have a long and happy future together.

ARC Review: Husband Hunters by Rick R. Reed
Husband Hunters - Rick R. Reed

I liked this quite a bit - the idea for the plot was great, and the execution also worked, for the most part.

 

I do like me a good Friends To Lovers romance, especially when one of the friends has been secretly pining for the other. And in this particular case, I also liked the premise that the book was more or less poking fun at reality TV, which, as we all know, isn't based on reality much at all. 

 

What could have delved into the punny and hilarious actually turned into a rather nice character study of two men who've been friends for a long time, with one of them (Cody) desperately seeking "The One", and the other (Matt) desperately waiting for Cody to see the forest for the trees.

 

The book did an excellent job poking into the world of "reality" TV, with the off-camera manipulations and the on-camera acting. It was also long enough to establish realistic characterizations for both Matt and Cody, as well as allow them both to grow throughout the story, without ever letting it feel contrived. I giggled a few times, but there were also times when my heart was in my throat and I was on the edge of my seat, hoping and wishing and wanting it all to turn out for them both. 

 

I've come to realize that a Rick Reed book needs to be savored, slowly and carefully, for the treasure within. This one was my favorite by him yet. I loved the slow exploration of the characters, I could feel Matt's pain and Cody's confusion, and I cheered loudly when they finally figure it out.

 

It also shows that oftentimes, there's not a clear delineation between friends and lovers, and that Cody might have it very wrong when he draws that bold line between the two. It's actually quite the opposite, as he finds out - that friends often make better lovers, and that it's usually a great thing when friends become lovers, when they have a solid foundation of friendship and mutual respect. 

 

Well done, Rick. I thoroughly enjoyed this one. 

 

** I received a free copy of this book from the publisher. A positive review was not promised in return. **

Sin With a Scoundrel: The Husband Hunters Club - Sara Bennett I tried to finish this book, I really did. I just didn't like the main characters: Tina came off as self-centered and mercenary and Richard appeared sleazy and manipulative. I think my main problem is that there is no background leading up to why the main characters are behaving the way they are; there is nothing showing me why I should care about them. When I found myself starting to look forward to Archie and Maria's parts is when I called it quits. I stopped at 39% on my Kindle but that was just stuborness on my part. I should have stopped at the second chapter.

Led Astray by a Rake (Husband Hunters Club, Book 1) (The Husband Hunters Club) - Sara Bennett I found the writing amateurish. While I guess only parts of the big secret, I guess it very early on. I will keep the book as I believe there are 4 others to come and I like my series' complete, of course, that is in the hope that the other books will be much better.
