More than Personal
Will and Blake are approaching their sixth wedding anniversary, and life is good. Their surrogate, Donna, is due to deliver their baby in three weeks’ time, and the two men can’t wait to become fathers.
Today is Will’s birthday, and Blake has plans to make it a very sexy and memorable one. Little do both men realize, the day will be memorable for an entirely different reason.
Brash, Cockney bear Ed Fellows celebrates the birth of his boss's daughter with a few drinks, shared with fellow rugby team-mate Colin. What follows rocks Ed's world. Okay, so it wasn’t the first blow-job Ed’s ever gotten from a guy—or given, for that matter—but that was a long time ago, right? And why does Ed now want more?
Colin has a romantic, long Valentine’s Day weekend planned for Ed. A visit to Manchester’s Canal Street, a really nice hotel, complete with four poster bed, and an intimate meal in a restaurant.
Unfortunately, things don’t go quite according to plan...
I have to start off by saying that we haven't read a lot of books in this gene but so far out of the authors I have read Ms Wells is one of my favorites.This author creates amazing characters that you just can't help but fall in love with.
Blake and Will definitely a favorite couple in this series.I loved both of them.Blake and Will at first seem to be a odd couple at first glance.What does a owner of a publishing company have in common with an escort other than chemistry and great sex?Blake is just what he seems confident man in work and business who is well liked and even loved by his team members at work.Yet that being said he has always kept his personal life and secret from his family and friends and about him being gay.Will on the other hand is out of the closet as they say and has had a very hard life up to this point.Non accepting parents through him out when he was a teen and he was forced to be what they call a rent boy just to survive.One of the things I loved about Will is he never tried to hide his past or the things he was forced to do but owned up to it all and just turned the negative in to the positive that just made him a stronger individual.
Will and Blake's night together is a one off when they meet .Its just and evening of Blake paying for a evening of sexual pleasure and Will is actually Alex at this point but turns up the next day as Will office applying for a job as a personal assistant .Can you say awkward?
A rocky start in this couples relationship turned into so much more.Wow! the chemistry this couple had was super hot.They had several heated sexual encounters as well as a little bdsm thrown into the mix. Making their love making moments super hot and fun and playful and Alex makes an appearance every now and then just to spice things up a bit.This is the one time that ones past makes for a more of and interesting sex life for this couple as Will aka Alex has done it all.Grins...Just a really cute couple that balanced out one another.
Found Blake to be confident kind,passionate,love-able,sexy and on hand we saw sadness,loneliness and unhappiness at constantly hiding who and what he truly is that makes him happy.
Will on the other hand I loved him right off strong and confident emotional and very sensitive who had an amazing personality.He seemed to be at ease in his own skin and take the bull by the horn type and takes what he wants when he wants it.Will is that type who is definitely the dominate in his relationship with Blake.
An amazing love story that had many ups and downs along with many surprises thrown in the mix.I loved both Will and Blake they were a really cute couple that we saw blossom throughout the pages just by being together.This couple brought happiness into each other lives at a point when both this couple need change at this point in their lives.An emotional tale that tugged at your heart strings who had you from the onset rooting for a happily ever after for an amazing couple who truly belongs together.
Rick and Angelo's Tale
This story had a lot of emotional ups and down for the characters as well as it reader.My heart broke for this couple at the heart ache and the decisions Angelo's parents were forcing him to make .Either Colin or them.
Rick works for Blake at Trinity publishing and loves his job and friends but, his love life is seriously lacking.
Omg !The hottest and intense memorable moment in the story took place when Ben and Ollie a couple in love and who are partners love to play.Their game tonight is Rick!Rick will forever remember his night with Ollie and Ben forever as it brought the hottest sexual gratification he has ever received in his long list of lovers. Omg! fanning yourself ladies and gents..
Rick at this point in his life is tired of the one night stands and is looking for something more meaningful and serious.Rick was definitely a guy unlucky at love and also had an awful taste in men until he meets Angelo from a situation that almost lead him to becoming a rape victim.
I liked Angelo he was outgoing kind gentle supportive and artist who was an all around great guy who seemed to be happy with his life.His attraction is Rick is overwhelming and someone who he can't seem to forget.From the onset of seeing Rick from across the room he became protective of him and vowed to watch over him even before meeting him.Did Angelo know right then in there that Rick was his Soul mate?And if so why is he willing to give up the love of his life to remain part of a family who are non accepting of who and what he is?
An emotional tale of a couple who are meant to be together and who make one another happy and fulfilled yet choses you lead a life of unhappiness over love.My heart broke for this couple and the unhappiness and pain that brought Angelo to make the decisions he was forced to make even if they were the wrong ones because of his family.
Rick was my favorite character in this story.I truly felt his pain and suffering an unhappiness he was experiencing as nothing seemed ever to work out for his benefit.So unlucky in love and his doomed relationship brings him to the point where he would rather be alone then to ever experience the pain he is currently feeling over his breakup with Angelo.
Ricks saviors are Blake ,Will and Ed who are there for him not matter what and he could not but help but love them for it even more than he already did.He is truly blessed to have them as friends and he knows with their help he might survived the heartbreak he is currently experiencing .
A page turner that was filled with so much emotion,love ,friendship and sexual gratification and one overcoming life hurtles that were placed in ones path.The story had a great cast of characters with so many different personalities making it intriguing fun that brought you many laughs as well as many tears.
Ed and Colin's Tale
Loved this couple and their very intense love affair.
Ed has been with us from the start of this series and remains a constant favorite of mine.I loved him from the onset.Sexy,brash,love-able,funny ,protective of those he loves and type who speaks his mind and doesn't give a crap about what others think.Ed up until this point has been the loyal friend to all and a great guy to work with and for.He always seemed happy yet perhaps a bit lonely without even realizing it.Ed's love life has been lacking of late and seeing all of those around him finding love and happiness has him thinking about his own life.Does he want to find what his Boss and Co workers have found or is happy with how his life is at this moment? For Ed he has never had a problem with his friends and boss being gay as he has been with both men and women.It matters not he loves and cares for them as well as being protective over them and enjoys seeing them happy .How they chose to live their life is their business and not his place to judge them.
Ed and Colin have been best buds for over a year and yet one night with much drink under their belts changes things between them and their friendship.A night of a hot sexual gratification between them changes things and has Ed questioning his own sexual preferences.Was this encounter just about sexual release or is he truly attracted to Colin?
Colin on the other hand has had a thing for Ed for sometime but knows he is straight and has never made a move on him yet this encounter has him thinking could he have more than friendship with Ed?
Colin is comfortable in his own skin and has no problem letting people he knows he is gay.Ed on they other hand has to find his way to decide if he is straight,bi sexual or gay.
I loved this couple as Ed was so different from Colin he was had a hard edge to him yet friendly and kind but the kind of man who scared others to death.Colin was the sensitive and kind and funny type who was comfortable in his own skin and enjoyed life to the fullest.This couple had amazing chemistry super hot sexual encounters who were truly made for one another.Each of them different yet had much in common with each other yet the perfect mate for one another.
And emotional tale of a couple who struggle to find balance in their relationship when one who hasn't come to terms with his own sexuality and what other people think of him of being in a relationship with another man yet the other one could not care the least what people thought of them.We saw a lot of ups and downs for this couple but we also saw a couple who truly loved one another who just need to find a way to be a couple.
Of all the couples throughout the stories this couple had to deal with more hate and bigotry from others and those who were small minded.Perhaps being Rugby players had something to do with that.As with any relationship you have those who accept and hate you for who and what you are and who you chose to love.
I loved the story from cover to cover.I loved Ed from the beginning and I so wanted him to find his own happiness so I was thrilled to be along the ride with him as he found the love of his life.I loved how every time you though you had Ed figured out he did something that surprised you had you admitting you didn't know him as well as you think you did.
Another awesome tale that carried its characters from one book to the next that had you laughing one moment and crying the next.
A recommend series to all.We loved the entire series and its characters and will definitely be re-reading about them at a later date.Another series for the keeper shelf and looking so forward to this authors latest releases.
5 stars for us
My overall thoughts
One of the things that I love about this author writing and characters is that she makes you fall in love with her characters from the onset.When I read her stories I love seeing her couples fall in love and overcoming things in their relationships that all couples face.Yes her books happen to be about two same sexual males but she focuses on them as a couple and them finding their way with one another and not such much at just being a gay male.Yes they have more hurtles to overcome then most couples but is it any different from what and interracial couple has to go through...
K.C. Wells started writing in 2012, although the idea of writing a novel had been in her head since she was a child. But after reading that first gay romance in 2009, she was hooked.
She now writes full time, and the line of men in her head, clamouring to tell their story, is getting longer and longer. If the frequent visits by plot bunnies are anything to go by, that’s not about to change anytime soon.
