Second Chances - wow, what a start to the series. Remy I loved straight away, he may have been what most people would call a twink, and also look like he was brainless, but nothing could be further from the truth. Also being so young (he was only nineteen), people would not understand that he wanted a forever relationship.
Now Chance, I have to admit I wasn't so sure of him. He was ok when you first met him, but boy does he have issues, which Remy was sure to pull him up on! Even Chance couldn't accept that Remy wanted something permanent and in some ways Chance was just waiting for their relationship to fail.
To begin with, it seems like their relationship is actually going to go really well, except for the fly in the ointment which is Remy’s friend Matty. What Remy doesn’t realise is that Matty thinks he is in love with Remy, and although Remy is happy decides that he knows what is best for Remy and does something unforgiveable….
At this stage of the book, I am beginning to get angry with Chance, as he has everything worked out in his head, and he has decided he was always right, and was most definitely right about Remy – but he is so so wrong, and to make matters worse, he refuses to listen to his own friends. Is this relationship completely broken now, or will Chance finally listen to his friends??
Second Drafts - Now Shain is one MC that I rather disliked when we first meet him. I get that he wants to live alone, but how he treats his one night stands quite annoyed me! Now Elliden is totally different, and you will see straight away he is a totally different person to Shain.
Elliden and Shain meet again when Elliden decides he needs to find his one night stand he met in Matchmakers from years ago, the one person who made him feel normal. They do meet again, but as usual Shain treats Elliden like his usual one night stands – and you can really feel the devastation from Elliden about this, he doesn’t know what he has done wrong.
They do meet again, and whenever he is with Elliden, Shain finds that he is able to write much more than usual, but he is his usual sunny self and sends Elliden packing once too often. This time Elliden decides that he will try and keep his fits at bay in his own way, and that usually means avoiding people at all costs. Is this even possible, or does he need Shain or his sedation drugs to help??
How long will it take Shain to realise that Elliden is something special, and his very presence in his life means that Shain can vitually write non-stop for hours…. But Shain is one stubborn man, but there is also something secret that he holds close to his chest. But there is also a secret that Elliden has too, so will Shain and Elliden ever be able to have a relationship together if they don’t share these things?
This is one book where you will be shouting at your kindle, telling Shain to change what he is doing. At times he does come across as very selfish and totally self absorbed, but things are revealed later in the book which give you some idea of what it is Shain is hiding. But will Shain ever realise that Elliden is good for him, and that he is a calming influence of Elliden??
Second Place - Before you start reading this book, make sure you have a box of tissues on hand – you will need them. I never saw this coming in the third book, but I couldn’t stop reading even when in tears!!
Danny is the man who loves matchmaking people, usually with great results. He has been doing this, since he made the worse choice of his life…. he cheated on Bryan and lost him, seemingly forever. Danny then managed to match Eric with Bryan, but However, Danny has seen Bryan coming to matchmakers and disappearing into the back rooms with his tricks, and with Eric nowhere to be seen.
Danny tries to talk to Bryan, who refuses to talk to him…. Until the night he receives a call, and Danny goes with him and soon finds things are not quite as simple as he thought.
I don’t want to spoil things and say what is happening, but this is mainly where you will need your tissues, and you will also be on an emotional roller coaster ride. I have to commend the author on this book, it will really pull at your heart strings big time. I have actually read this book twice, and it was just as emotional the second time of reading as the first.
My only little niggle, is that the glossary was at the end of the book, but it would have helped me had this been at the beginning of the book – but that is my preference only.
