Ms. Santo is a new author to me and this is the fourth book in the series and I’m going to have to go back and purchase 1-3!! I was that impressed with her. This story flowed really well and I really love Marshall and Preston.

Preston on the other hand did not get accepted by his family with the exception of his younger sister. They have ridiculed him and basically disowned him from the family because of his sexuality. Now he has hangups being with men publicly, especially since he’s in the Navy.

Marshall and Preston met on a dating app, it was just supposed to be a one night thing but it turned out to be an almost 2 year affair. That’s when Marshall gave Preston an ultimatum- meet his friends as his boyfriend. Preston was very fearful of getting rejected by Marshall’s friends and family because of his own experience. Falling in love and expressing that are two totally different things. Will Preston take the leap of faith with Marshall and come all the way out of the closet?

Ms. Noelle is a fabulous author and I can’t wait for what she puts out next. I wish I could rate this book higher than 5 stars.

Blown away by Ms. Scherbert’s writing. This is the first book that I’ve had the pleasure of reading by this author. She writes about sassy heroines and sweet alpha males (swoon-worthy combination).

When their paths cross everyone better look out and then throw Bull into the mix well let’s just say things really heat up. Will their little family be enough to stop the evil coming their way?
