The Dating Game - DNF @ 20% (Audiobook)
The Dating Game - Jay Northcote

I got the ebook free forever ago and cracked it open some months back but quickly decided to shelve it due to the writing. Then I saw this in the Audible Romance Package and decided to give it another go. Ugh! Narrator isn't bad, but really is too posh for the story. And the story itself is pretty standard contemporary romance with little else going on. Just not that interesting.

The Law of Attraction - Jay Northcote,Matthew Lloyd Davies

This was a mixed bag. I found Alec intolerably arrogant in the beginning, but he grew on me. He didn’t exactly win the partent lottery so he has spent his whole life in the closet.
Ed is just the opposity – out and proud with a great family who loves and supports him all the way. Add to that some amazing friends and co-workers and this is pretty much a feel-good story all the way.
Initial attraction and passion is followed by the two of them getting to know and eventually falling for each other, forcing Alec to maybe reconsider whether or not he is prepared to spend the rest of his life closeted and lonely. Or if maybe he and Ed are worth taking a chance on. Which mainly means standing up to his parents and telling them the truth about himself.
Obviously the whole thing ends the way it’s supposed to. But I still have to subtract a star for severe lack of required groveling. And for Alec’s relationship with his parents; if any parent of mine had treated me like that in younger years, I sure as hell would not still have been around to celebrate their 70th birthday...

Nothing Serious by Jay Northcote Review
Nothing Serious - Jay Northcote

Mark O'Brien is finally being honest with himself. His relationship with Rachel is over and he's moving out of the home they've shared for six years. They get along, but he can't fix a relationship when the person he's with is the wrong gender.

Jamie Robertson, one of the removal men, is huge and ridiculously gorgeous, and Mark is smitten at first sight. When a cardboard box splits, revealing items of a personal nature that Mark never wanted anybody to see, he's mortified. But it sparks the start of a beautiful friendship with benefits.

As Jamie initiates Mark into the joys of gay sex, the two men get increasingly close and "nothing serious" turns into something rather important to both of them. But communication isn't their strong point. Will either man ever find the courage to be honest about his feelings?


Such a nice sexy romance between an man who has just come out and a younger hero who has always been himself.


Northcote writes a lovely little character driven love story. A good way to spend the afternoon.

Cold Feet
Cold Feet - Jay Northcote I liked this book, however I will say that it was a bit too similar in some ways to Jay's other book "What Happens at Christmas". The in some ways immature lack of communication between two best friends is an issue for me which happened with both books. I mean my best friend and I sorta the the opposite to these books since we dated for 2 yrs... then realized we would kill each other is we stayed as BFs... yet to this day we are like brothers. Anyway just saying that if you are that close as friends it goes without saying that you will talk stuff out and be truthful. Anyway, the story in this one was good, I loved how they spent Christmas day with Mari... which seemed particularly good. Also I thought that Sam and Ryan were great characters even if they had trouble being adults when it came to discussing their feelings. Who knows, maybe I am hypersensitive to this stuff from having been to therapy for quite some time; learning to express what I am feeling rather then keep it secret and bottled up inside me. Over all, an enjoyable read!

What Happens At Christmas
What Happens At Christmas - Jay Northcote I'm gonna just start off by saying that over all I liked this book and am glad I read it. That said, I felt like this book spent way too much time with both guys wanting the same thing, but neither of them being brave enough to say it. Add to it that I felt live Justin's disregard for the feelings of the guy Andy was seeing, never even considering that Andy may well be lying to the new guy too; was just callous and shallow. And I don't think the fact that after he split Andy and his date up, he then kinda shoved the guy with the crush on him at Andy's now ex to try and make up for hurting him really cancels out is over all attitude. He at least owed the guy an apology once he destroyed things, in public no less. Personally based on the rest of Justin's behavior throughout the book I think his actions at the party were so out of character that it should not have happened. OK... no more ranting. LOL Because despite all this above crap I still enjoyed this book. Sean more than made up for Dustin's screw-ups, though both of them should have admitted their feeling much sooner. I think all my issues can be summed up by a quote of something Dustin says at one point in the book. "Adulting is difficult".
