Ready For Love (Semper Fi, The Forever Faithful, #1) by Stella Starling Review
Ready For Love (Semper Fi, The Forever Faithful Series) (Volume 1) - Stella Starling

Jake Hansen has been crushing on Gabe Byrne for half his life, but since Gabe is a straight, self-proclaimed commitment-phobe who moved away years ago to join the Marines, that crush is strictly a fantasy-best-enjoyed-in-private. And even when Gabe starts to flirt with him like crazy, Jake still knows better than to think it means anything.

Because falling in love with your straight bestie? Not just a cliche, but a guaranteed recipe for disaster.

…right?

Growing up, Gabe never saw “Little Jakey” as anything more than the kid who always liked to tag along after him and his brothers, but somehow, being friends with Jake has become the best part of his day. And after a seven-month deployment? Seeing Jake is the one thing he’s looking forward to the most.

He just didn’t expect that hanging out in person again would be so confusing… or keep blurring the lines about how straight he is… or keep making him want things that he never thought he would.

Things that seem a lot like forever.

 

Review

I liked this book despite myself. 

I adored Jake. I loved his self awareness and fun. 

Gabe is a commitment phobe and a reactor so not my favorite character type. He also is in the I have never felt desire for any other man but you type and not a demisexual so also not my favorite. He does a lot of not self aware stuff. 

And yet it is a sweet romance and I liked Jake enough and he liked Gabe enough that I enjoyed myself. 

A nice circle of friends and family. I have already started the next book in the series which is way sweeter and I like it much more.

Book Review: All I Want by Stella Starling
All I Want - Stella Starling

Utterly adorable Christmas story that I snagged when it was offered for free on Amazon. Excellent story-telling, and such a sweet romance. I adored Elliott - he was such a sweetheart, and so very kind to everyone, always believing only the best of people. And I loved watching Ash grow throughout this book and believe that he could be more than what he had been.

Looking For Love - Stella Starling

It’s all good :)
Two very sweet guys falling in love and growing real close in a short time. Because that’s what happens when you find ‘the spark’ as we learn from Zach’s wonderful neighbor, Ana.
In the middle of all the sweet, the queen bitch shows up to cause trouble. We are talking serious levels of nasty bitchiness here. And the best part? She stayed a bitch until the end. There was no “oh, that’s ok, you’re sorry. You’re forgiven.” Just her being a bitch but not getting away with her evil scheming. Because love wins.
And then there was, of course, the sweetest epilogue. Just wonderful. All good.
Now can we please have Brody’s story real soon?

Looking For Love - Stella Starling

Zach ran a thumb over Micah’s lower lip, tugging it out from between his teeth, and Micah caught his breath, his heart racing so hard he thought he might literally die. Which, God, he really, really didn’t want to do if it was going to mess up whatever was about to happen with Zach.
