Matthew Doner is starting over. After a five-year prison term that alters every aspect of his life, he receives a bequest from his aunt with the stipulation that he use the money to make things right. 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. Julian Capeletti likes challenges. He is confident, brash, stubborn, and just what Matt needs. Desperate for work after a downturn of luck, he accepts the job to renovate Matt’s crumbling building. Over the course of a year, romance simmers between them as they restore the house. But there’s a bigger renovation that must take place in their hearts. To become better men, they need to learn to trust each other even with secrets and painful memories they fear may rip them apart.

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.

Forbidden
Conduct Unbecoming - L.A. Witt

In the military, and in this case the US Navy, an officer and an enlisted person (sailor) cannot be romantically involved.  It is to protect both parties, as one of them could be said enlisted person's boss.  This is separate from all the don't ask, don't tell stuff they finally got rid of.

 

Eric & Shane meet off base.  The location is discreet and they do not exchange names.  When they see one another again, there is more at stake.  They both know it.  Shane is an officer.  

 

Shane has a lot to lose if they are caught.  He also knows he has not met anyone like Eric, and might never again.  This choice pulls at him until he just can't fight anymore.

 

This story tugs at your heartstrings.  It made me feel for both characters.  I was rooting for them right from the start.  There is a little bit of everything in this book.  The humor, the travel, the sparks flying.... just overall a great story.  I give it a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

The Wedding Date (Only Him Book 1) - Nicole Casey

Bryant is in a rough spot.  His sister is marrying the cousin to his ex.  It really did not end well.  He is hoping to take a decent date to help him cope with the whole thing.

 

Max lets himself get set up for a wedding weekend with a blind date.  He is not sure what to expect.  When he opens the door to a cutie that attracts him right away, he figures it will be worth it.  Could the future be him?

 

This is a quick and sweet read.  I was feeling all the feels.  I even found someone in the book I wanted to reach in and kick!  This book has some really good heat.  It is easy to root for these two to be together.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Patience
Managing Expectations - Peter Styles

Wynn has been with Holden for a decade, and he puts up with quite a bit to be able to be with him.  Holden has a very public job, and Wynn must stay private.  This is a tricky subject for them.

 

Along comes some surprises, that were not what Wynn signed up for.  He meets someone new that he is attracted to, and then begins the actual love triangle.  This is where Wynn must choose what is really right for him and his future.

 

This story was a challenge for me.  You get to where you root for the couple and then the surprises kick in and it all goes - boom!  In this book we have many outside factors, and it made the story both fun and frustrating.  Always love this author's stories, though.  Keeps me entertained.  I give this book a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

 

 

***I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book.

“It’s a touching and rewarding finale to a fantastic series, and “personal challenges” is definitely a very fitting title!” - Rainbow Book Reviews “Loved this book!!!” - Love Bytes Reviews “KC wells continues to blow me away with each book that is written and this one did the same.” - Reader Review
 
 
 
 
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.
