Read from November 28 to 29, 2015 — I own a copy, read count: 1
Recommended for: m/m newbies and lovers of sweet romance

Synopsis: Television producer Charlie Trager spends his days working with beautiful women on a daytime talk show. But underneath his cool façade, there’s a hollow spot in his heart, waiting for the right man to ease his loneliness. Then he meets the show’s next guest, a handsome young politician with a bad case of nerves—and a secret that could turn both their lives upside down.

word count: 14,000

Bookish Things: The cover isn’t catchy enough, especially because the writing is awesome. I wish this book and the others in the Trager Family Secrets series had catchier covers.

Where to buy: Amazon on kindle for $0.81.

My Review: 

The rather quick introduction to Charlie and Adam (Joshua), otherwise known as the Trager Family Secrets Series. Laurie makes the budding romance between the two men both delicious and sweet, and sexy as hell.

Absolutely nothing explicit or in-your-face in terms of sex, this is a very soft opening to the romance, which will build into an amazing series.

I read book 3 first, so the events in this part are not new, but I got more information about the supporting characters, particularly Xander and Freddie. Both of which I adored already from their parts in book 3, and it helped to see them in this opening short story. It made the whole thing more realistic.

ETA: This book has a few themes that might bother some readers: cheating and children are part of the existing family.

If you want to try a glorious, sweet and sexy m/m romance try Laurie’s Trager Family Secrets series, you won’t be disappointed.

  1. Thank you so much for posting the review! And hopefully catchier covers will be on the way for the whole series later this year. I’m really looking forward to that. 😀
