Blurb: Can a flashy sous chef and a hard-working landscaper go beyond their pasts and find one another?

Homeless as a teen, Malcolm Bissette has found a new life at the Southern Charm. Flamboyant, he often changes his hair color on a whim. At sixteen, he crushed hard on the landscaper Reece Simpson.

Now all grown up, Malcolm still has a crush on Reece, but there appears to be no reciprocation from him. Malcolm watches him at work every day from the kitchen, but lets the crush disappear. He vows to forget the man—that is, until Reece changes the entire game.

Waiting for years to get his hands on the vast overgrowth around the Charm, Reece Simpson dives into the project with enthusiasm. Preferring plants to people, he sticks to just brief moments with men. There is one man he would consider staying beyond a moment with, though—the flashy, colorful sous chef at the Southern Delights. Realising his feelings, Reece is knocked off his feet by a wave of emotions. Is he in time to catch this flirty chef?

What would it be like to have Mal in bed? Would it make the summer afternoons even steamier? Is there a chance for love for both of them? Could they entertain the idea of a life together like their friends?

Review: This is book three in the Southern Charm series. You do need to read these in order. You can find them all here https://www.totallybound.com/series/southern-charm.

On the Green Picks up with Reese. He owns a busy landscaping business. He has been dying to get hold of working the Charm and would also like to get his hands on the sexy sous chef Malcolm. He always thought he was cute but too young. Now he is a very sexy, flamboyant young man who likes colorful hair.

Malcolm was thrown out when he came out and Dakota had found him at 16, gave him a job as dishwasher and helped him rise to head sous chef. He has crushed on Reese since he first met him but Reese doesn’t seem to know he exists.

I hate to say this but I didn’t like this one near as much as the other two. It seemed a bit unconnected at times. I didn’t see where the first couple of chapters even fit in with Reese on a job elsewhere. Also, there were some places where we got scenes that had happened in other books instead of referencing back almost as if this book was in-between each of the others instead of following. So though I said this series should be read in-order you may actually enjoy reading this one on its own more. LA so the ongoing issues form the last two books ever got brought up and reconciled still.

Having said that, I do love Malcolm. Love him in all the books. He is bright and colorful (literally) I adored the reference to his hair and mood changes. I also love the energetic Dorian and cannot wait to see his story.

If you like ongoing series, charming southern towns, landscaping, cooking and some fairly hot mansex this is for you

Review: Cute Parker Smith is a fox shifter though he can’t shift. He finally sees his way to get closer to Mason, the man he’s been in love with for a while, when he saves his life and enacts the year worth of servitude owed to him by Mason. Sexy Mason Young is an Alpha wolf that is a chef. One day, not paying attention to his surroundings he is saved by a cute fox shifter. As the two get to know one another, better they each struggle with their growing feelings.

Cute story with a lot of drama and misunderstandings. I liked how Mason tried to fight his feelings for Parker. I also liked that after a while Parker started feeling as if he was taking advantage of Mason and tried to make things right. Hot sex between the two all throughout.

Great read.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Botanist Henri Muller who badly scarred in a fire working on his thesis about flowers only to discover that his time is running out on his research. He learns from his assistant that there is a recluse man who grows the flowers he needs to finish his research. Ambrose is the lonely vampire who grows flowers in his greenhouse. Upon meeting Henri, he longs for the one thing that he’s never had, a mate.

Wonderfully written story. The fire was horrifying. The details of the plants in the greenhouse were hauntingly beautiful. This story simply amazed me with its loving yet intense moments. The intimate scenes between Ambrose and Henri were hot enough to scorch the pages.

Fantastic read.

Review: This book was awesome. It had me from the first line. Final Admission is one of those books that once you pick it up you cannot put it down. It’s a real page turner.

Ethan is a rather new employee in the advertising firm of Bingwell, Brock and Bacon. He is very good at what he does and moves up very fast in the firm. He meets James and his first opinion is he agrees with the office gossip and talk that James is a real Dick. In a meeting, James teases him. This makes Ethan not only more pissed at the man but also he can’t get James out from under his skin or out of his fantasies.

James looks confident and flirts with everyone. Some talk as if he is a big player. No one knows that underneath the pretty, confident, airs he is an abused spouse.

This is a very beautifully written story of spousal abuse. I like how the author added a bit of casual humor to soften the angsty storyline. It brings home the fact that no matter the status, or sex of an individual, abuse is real. I also liked that this wasn’t a love at first sight or insta love story. This relationship builds from co-workers, to friendship to more. I am also glad the author made the office a mixed sex office and not everyone in the story is gay. It had a very realistic vibe.
If you want to read a fabulous story of dealing with change of a lover, spousal abuse and recovery, this is a great one to read. I will definitely be reading more Sue Brown.

If you like office romance, friends to lovers, sexy lawyers, Spousal abuse, recovery, love, angst, loving relatives, and some pretty hot mansex this is definitely for you.
