Dine with Me
Dine With Me - Layla Reyne

Lots of food, lots and lots of food. I like food, and I realize that Miller is a chef and Clancy is along for a food-filled tour, but more time is spent on the food than on the romance. I mean, this is technically supposed to be a romance, right? Nevertheless, the first half of this one revolves mostly around the food with a little get to know you conversation thrown in as Clancy attempts to get to know Miller, who is doing his best to remain closed-off to anything personal.
Things do pick up in the second half and given the circumstances, the emotions also pick up dramatically. This is where the focus is on Miller's diagnosis and his decisions about that. Despite my feelings about the lack of romance, I still really liked both Miller and Clancy, and this part of the book certainly tugged on my heartstrings.
In the end, Dine with Me is sweet, emotional, and a little bit steamy, but between the food tour and Miller's diagnosis and determination to follow through with his plan, I feel like the romance suffered. Yes, we're told that these guys care about each other, we get Clancy's distress over the situation, and they certainly have chemistry between the sheets. But, so little time was spent on the whole falling in love that it was hard to believe it when they finally professed those feelings. We do get an oh, so sweet ending to wrap things up, but for me, it was too little too late to entirely sell me on the romance.
The book is well-written, and I'm glad I read it, but it's not something I'll remember down the road in terms of recommended romances.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Dine with Me by Layla Reyne
Dine With Me - Layla Reyne

@LaylaReyne, #Contemporary#MM#Romance, 4 out of 5 (very good)

 

DINE WITH ME is a change of direction from the Romantic Suspense novels I have read by Layla Reyne. And I don't mean in a bad way, as I thoroughly enjoyed reading this.

Miller is a chef, who has just closed down a restaurant, is getting a divorce from his best-friend/wife, oh, and by the way, has throat cancer too. There are many trials and tribulations he goes through, most of which are completely understandable, and you will certainly empathise with him as a character.

As for Clancy, he is a foodie and also a doctor. He has just agreed to work at his dad's plastic surgery clinic, although he has major doubts about that. His calling is for oncology, but he doesn't know how to let his dad down.

You travel with these two as they go from one special place to another, with Miller sharing his love of food. The attraction between these two simmers all the way through, overflowing at points.

With a fantastic supporting cast of characters, I thoroughly enjoyed the story as it panned out. I loved Miller's thought processes, and how Clancy worked. 

There were no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading, and I found the pacing to be perfect for the story. 

Although we had an epilogue, I would still love to hear more from this couple! Absolutely recommended by me.

Well it's been a while since I've read a M/F romance...
Tequila Sunrise - Layla Reyne,Tristan James Mabry

and this one was good. At just under 4 hours this one was short and action packed.  Both Danny and Melissa (Mel) have appeared in earlier books in the Agents Irish and Whiskey series and it was really enjoyable to see the author give them their own story.

 

We've seen hints of their attraction but here we get the full story through Danny and Melissa's memories as they work with their family and friends to save lives and keep the latest ship in Talley Enterprises from being hijacked.

 

I enjoyed both of these characters in the previous books Danny for me was simply a delightful playboy who definitely had depth and character that was only eluded to but in this story shows full force. While Melissa is a confident, kick-ass woman who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after it.

 

For fan of Agents Irish & Whiskey this is a fun littler interlude and once again Tristan James has given us a solid narration adds depth and life to this wonderful, action packed, romantic adventure.

 

Definitely recommended for anyone but especially fans of Agents Irish & Whiskey.

Single Malt by Layla Reyne - My Thoughts
Single Malt - Layla Reyne

This book hit the spot.  You know, that spot you have when you can't decide for your life which book you want to read next, even what genre you want to read in!  Why I chose this book, I don't know, but it was the right move.  I really liked it!

I'm a sucker for these buddy/lovers/partners books.  Ty and Zane (Abigail Roux) are my total OTP couple and Prophet and Tommy (S. E. Jakes) are right close behind.  And now Irish and Whiskey or Aiden and Jamie if you prefer, can be added to that list. 

Filled with action and puzzles as well as some intense interaction between the two main characters, Single Malt was a quick read for me.  A page-turner if you will.  The chemistry is undeniable between the two and I really enjoyed how their banter could go from playful and teasing to intense and sexy and then right into kick-ass get-'er-doneness.  I liked both of them. 

I also liked the cast of secondary characters.  Especially Aiden's younger brother, Danny.  He has a book later in the series, I believe. 

I'm intrigued by the mystery which I assume will arc over multiple books. 

So, yes, I will be picking up the next book in the series very soon!

Single Malt by Layla Reyn 99 cents!
Single Malt - Layla Reyne

Eight months after the car crash that changed everything, FBI agent Aidan Talley is back at work. New department, new case and a new partner. Smart, athletic and handsome, Jameson Walker is twelve years his junior. Even if Aidan was ready to move on—and he's not—Jamie is off-limits. 

 

Jamie's lusted after Aidan for three years, and the chance to work with San Francisco's top agent directly is too good to pass up. Aidan is prickly—to put it mildly—but a growing cyber threat soon proves Jamie's skills invaluable.  

 

Jamie's talents paint a target on his back, and Aidan is determined to protect him. But with hack after hack threatening a high-security biocontainment facility, time is running out to thwart a deadly terrorist attack. They'll have to filter out distractions, on the case and in their partnership, to identify the real enemy, solve the case and save thousands of lives, including their own.
