A Worthy Man - Jaime Reese

I don't know how Jaime Reese writes amazing book after amazing book, but so far she has made me fall in love with every book she has written. The obsession started with A Better Man, which is still a firm favourite of mine. And now five books in, I still can't get enough of these guys and her words.

 

I'm pretty sure Vann and Drayton melted my heart and turned me into mush more times than I would ever be able to count. Their love was so strong, so emotional, I got so invested in their future.

 

These two are the epitome of meant to me. They were apart for so long, yet their love never faded. It remained present as always and kept both of them going through the crap in their lives. Their love gave me life. It made me smile. Got me all giddy when they were together on page. And I rooted hard for them.

 

As always with these series, we caught up with previous couples and saw how they were doing. We also got to meet some new ones. Li is hands down my girl here. I loved her and couldn't get enough of her.

 

I'm never going to get enough of this series or stop gushing about it. So I hope Jaime Reese continues to write it for a long, long time. These books are sort of like my crack. I can't read just one. I'm already planning a reread of the whole series at some point.

oh! I LOVED this one!!
A Worthy Man - Jaime Reese
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I was gifted my copy of this book. This is book five in the Men of Halfway House. It is a total stand alone within the series. But you should read the other books, if only because I said so and they are ALL five star reads. (I'm waiting for one to slip, but five books in and Reese is nailing every single one!) Ten years ago, Vann saved Dray's life and paid for it with his own. Some 520 letters later, Dray is able to finally get back the man he loved. But Vann is a changed man, and it takes time for him to get used to the fact that Dray still wants him, still loves him and waited so very long for him. I loved this!! Loved that Dray waited for Vann, loved that Vann could only hope for Dray. When I saw teasers for this book, it said low angst. Now, compared to A Better Man, is is very low but this isn't about Aiden and Jessie, this is Vann and Dray's story. And for me, I found there to be a different level of angst. And it simmers and bubbles all the way through the book. You never know when it will let up, and I loved that. Two things made this book for me. One, the epilogue. All the way through, every time 'their tree' was mentioned, I thought, why aren't they going?? And then, they do!! And its so beautiful. So very very beautiful. It made me cry! Two, when Vann says those three little words. Because up to THAT point, it didn't click that only Dray had said them!! I'm like. . He didn't, did he?? He didn't say them til that point, and again, I cried. Oh. Wait. Three. There is a line in the book where the title makes total sense. And guess what? I cried. Come to think of it, for a low angst book, I cried a lot. But still,an amazing addition to this series and I have no idea who might be next. A beautifully written book of waiting, wanting and getting that second chance with the only man you ever loved. All the guys from previous books pop up, and I loved that they do. There was a little recap about each pairing too. So, an emotional, single sitting read, that can only warrant.... 5 full stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

A Worthy Man
A Worthy Man - Jaime Reese A Worthy Man - Jaime Reese Enjoyed this immensely. I loved that Drayton never gave up and was willing to wait, help and support Vann even though he was incarcerated and things were really bad. I loved reading the reunion and them rebuilding their relationship. Also getting to know them both.

Breaking free of the long-standing role he’s played and inspired by the few who support him, he decides to create a safe place where people like him can find purpose and start a new life.

After surviving ten years in prison, Cameron Pierce is attempting to put the past behind him. He tries to adjust to his newfound freedom with a place at the halfway house and a job. But one lesson he learned in prison keeps him guarded: hope is a dangerous thing. Hunter Donovan, Assistant State Attorney, is a man of justice who loves a challenge. After a lifetime of putting his career first, a milestone brings him to a harsh realization—he's lonely. Hunter's world changes when he meets Cam. The wary young man intrigues him and awakens a desire unlike anything he's ever experienced. When Cam's past resurfaces and threatens to rip them apart, their budding relationship is challenged and Cam's hope for a future begins to dim. These outside forces hunting Cam will stop at nothing to send him back to prison. But they'll have to get past Hunter first.

Cole Renzo thinks his greatest challenge is to behave for the remainder of his term at Halfway House. Until he meets his new boss, Ty Calloway, a man who ticks off every box on Cole’s list of interests. A sought-after restorer and customizer of exotic and collectible cars, Ty had enough confidence to command what he wanted in life, until one fateful night changed everything. Almost two years later, he’s slowly rebuilding his life with great control. He’s defied the odds and works tirelessly to be the man he once was—but he still feels broken. Cole’s candor and unfiltered personality awaken Ty’s barely-remembered desire to greet each new day with a smile, while Ty’s unwavering acceptance of Cole’s quirks and brash humor makes Cole feel as if he fits in for the first time in far too long. When a nemesis threatens Ty’s personal restoration and the things he holds dear, Cole is determined to protect their relationship, even if that means sacrificing everything he’s worked so hard to achieve. But Ty will have to let his guard down, surrender control, and admit he needs Cole first, even if that puts himself at risk of breaking beyond repair.

Detective Aidan Calloway is rock-solid strong. He's a man of justice—loyal to his friends, family, and job—even if it requires bending a law…or two. He shields himself behind an abrasive, fearless facade, until a phone call one night chips his armor and throws his perfectly planned, hollow life into a tailspin. Jessie Vega is the epitome of optimism. His carefully crafted attitude of hope and positivity protects him from a past filled with too much pain. When a ghost from a dark time resurfaces and nearly breaks him, he must tap into his inner strength or risk losing everything he's worked so hard to build. But Jessie can't do it alone. He must fight to break through Aidan's ironclad defenses to reveal the heart of the man hiding beneath the tough surface and mend his damaged spirit. Only then can they truly heal and become strong enough to battle the demons that haunt them and threaten their chance to finally be together. ——— ***This book contains scenes and subject matter some readers may find distressing.*** Word count: 145K Although part of a series, this book can be read as a stand-alone.

Jaime Reese is the alter ego of an artist who loves the creative process of writing, just not about herself. Fiction is far more interesting. She has a weakness for broken, misunderstood heroes and feels everyone deserves a chance at love and life. An avid fan of a happy ending, she believes those endings acquired with a little difficulty are more cherished.
