The Husband Gambit by L.A. Witt 3.5 Star Review!
The Husband Gambit - L.A. Witt

Marry me for 1 year. Payment: $1.2 million.

Hayden Somerset is convinced the ad is a joke, but he responds anyway because, hello, $1.2 million. He’s broke, living in a tiny apartment with two roommates, and exhausted from praying his ancient car survives just one more week. His skyrocketing rent and crushing student loans aren’t helping either. At this point, there isn’t much Hayden wouldn’t do for that kind of cash.

The ad isn’t a joke. Jesse Ambrose is absolutely serious. His father, the charismatic patriarch of a powerful Hollywood dynasty, has his eye on politics, and he’s counting on California’s liberals and progressives to elect him. But Jesse knows what his father believes when cameras and voters aren’t around. As the election looms, he’ll do anything to force the man’s hand and show the public who Isaac Ambrose really is.

Anything, including marrying a stranger so his father will make good on his promise to disown Jesse if he ever takes a husband.

Now he just has to wait for his father to take the bait… and try not to accidentally fall in love with his fake husband.

 

Review

 

I love a good Marriage of Con plot and this book delivers. 

Hayden and Jesse are a good match and the reasons for the marriage are intersting. 

There is a bit of repeating of ideas (Hayden's poverty) that take up space which could have been used for better elements but I did enjoy the look at what the true impact of such a set of action might be.

I liked that Hayden had a support network and it was good to see Jesse's character grow. 

There are some plot strings that dangle but overall an enjoyable read.

From Out in the Cold By L.A. Witt Free!
From Out in the Cold - L.A. Witt

Neil Dalton’s foundation is already cracking. Grief, guilt, and PTSD have ruled his life since a terrible crime tore his world apart last year, and he’s dreading a holiday visit with the family he simultaneously needs and resents. Then someone from his past shows up and rattles that shaky foundation right out from under him.

First a war nearly destroyed Jeremy Kelley, then his family threw him out when he needed them the most. Now he’s barely holding on emotionally. He spends his last dollar to get to Chicago and prays his former best friend won’t leave him out in the cold.

Neil and Jeremy spend the holidays with Neil’s family in their hometown of Omaha. They struggle to deal with families, flashbacks… and feelings that haven’t even begun to fade since their last failed attempt at more than friends. As they try to repair their fractured psyches and rebuild damaged bridges, they rely on each other more than ever, but they can’t deny the mutual attraction that’s existed since before they were both emotionally battered and scarred. If they couldn’t make it work back then, how in the world can they pull it off now?

The Husband Gambit - L.A. Witt

Hayden is just about down to his last dollar.  Looking at the want ads, since he needs a miracle or another job, he finds something surprising.  Then he meets the writer and is in shock.

 

Jesse is desperate enough to offer quote a bit of money to someone who can handle the job.  When Hayden responds, it is like it was meant to be.  Now they just have to make it work and get the evidence to make all this worth it.

 

This book is a surprise from the beginning to the end.  Lots of little things to enjoy inside!  I loved the banter.  I loved the pace moved quickly.  I also loved the raw honesty these characters tried so hard to maintain without hurting one another.  Such a great story and a good old fashioned read.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

The Master Will Appear - L.A. Witt,Michael Ferraiuolo

A wonderful age gap romance with a healthy dose of BDSM. What’s not to love?

Misha is a college professor, an experienced fencer and a dominant. He already has three divorces under his belt and has been single for a while, yet he is quite content and hasn’t lost his general optimism.

Unlike the much younger college student Ryan who has grown up with a family of people who resent him for existing and where relationships and marriages serve a purpose rather than being about love and connection. In other words, for all Ryan knows, love is Hollywood invention. One he has never no experience with in real life.

 

Ryan and Misha meet through fencing and Misha starts giving Ryan fencing lessons. They don’t like each other much in the beginning, and yet there is some kind of pull. Ryan doesn’t really understand his attraction to the older man, but he is ok with some no-strings-fun. Except, once Misha puts him on his knees it all turns in to so much more as Ryan discovers his submissive side.

 

The relationship grows and we get insanely hot scenes – with and without D/s – and we get heartbreaking, tender moments. I loved all of it.

And I think most of all I absolutely loved this example of how a good narrator can take a great book and make it even more amazing. Michael Ferraiuolo absolutely nailed it; both his Misha and Ryan voices were perfect.
