Who We Are by Nicola Haken Review

   Who We Are by Nicola Haken 3 Stars! 

Since putting his life on hold ten years ago, Oliver Clayton doesn’t know who he is anymore. To his clients at the hair salon, he’s the sassy and confident stylist. To the crowds who come to watch his drag act at the club, he’s the fierce and fabulous Miss Tique. He’s popular. Talented. Out, proud, and self-assured.

He’s also a good actor.

Sebastian Day is content with life’s easy, if not a little monotonous, routine. After several failed relationships, he likes the simplicity of being alone in his truck at his job as a heavy goods driver, spending the weekends with his teenage son, and putting the world to rights with his cat, Marv. He’s not lonely. He isn’t hiding.

At least…he doesn’t think he is until he meets the mesmerising stranger with the red hair and purple lips.

Can Oliver and Sebastian help each other embrace who they are? Or will a cruel twist of fate end their journey before it’s even begun?

Review

So much going on in this book. We have a lot of angst but a good amount of joy too.

Our heroes are both raising teenagers. My favorite parts of this book actually deal with Tyler and Scott as much as Sebastian and Oliver. And I love the cat and the besties as well.

The romance is good too as it looks at two complicated adults leading full lives falling in love. Good stuff.

Long Haul by Bruce Rose Review

    Long Haul by Bruce Rose 3 Stars!

He’d only ever taken the short run…

Ryker Bacca had seen plenty of lot lizards at the truck stops along his route, but he preferred the anonymity of the restroom glory hole. In and done with each man getting what he needed. But this time was different. Not only did the guy on the other side have a mouth made of pure magic, but he managed to make Ryker break his number one rule: never get involved.

Once he’s in, Ryker can’t seem to say no to the blond-haired, blue-eyed cutie Jody Wilson. It isn’t long before Ryker’s breaking all his rules, and finding a connection with the one person in the world who seems to understand him. Irresistible temptation lures him deeper, but the last thing Ryker expected was to find a man worth the long haul.

 

Review

This romance starts in a pretty gritty place (glory hole at a truck stop with the older brother of the hero kicking the heck out of him) but it is really a sweet romance.

We have two lonely heroes and there are a few dramatic turns but we move steadily toward a Happily Ever After.

I also love down on your luck and working class heroes and here we get both and a puppy.

There could have been more time after the we agree to be together to make it a richer read but it was a nice one.

True’s Love by Pepper Pace Review

Review:

True's Love - Pepper Pace

When Trulane stepped off the bus landing smack dab in the middle of a small mountain town with no prospects or no money, she does what anyone would—finds a job and a place to sleep that won’t cost her any money. The only thing is that there is no such thing as being secretive in Estill County Kentucky—not when you’re about the only black person in the entire town.

With no knowledge that she is about to cross the only person in town that doesn’t gossip about her, True hopes that Clay, the big grumpy and very sexy mountain man won’t turn out like so many others that treat her as if she is beneath them.
True’s Love is a short romance from award winning author Pepper Pace and brings the readers back to the little town That Lt. Christopher Jameson aka Beast is from. If you like the stories about Estill County and its lively inhabitants than be sure to read A Wrong Turn Toward’s love and Beast.

 

Review

 

This is just the sweet romance about two working class people. Well, except for the klans men running around, the homelessness…

 

The heroine and the hero really fall in like and then love with each other. Very tender.
