Dennis

The love of my life is dead. Is there a reason to live anymore?

I’m a veteran Marine. Terrorists took not only my foot, but also my wife. Recurrent nightmares, a dead-end job, and a painful limp are all I have left. My best friend, Tucker, and my sister, Lizette, keep me afloat. I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for Tucker… literally. And then, out of nowhere, there are these feelings. The kind I haven’t felt in years. The kind I’m not sure I can handle, or even want to. But they’ve started wrapping around my broken heart, trying to mend it. Only they are not for a woman, but for the man suddenly sharing my bed. I’m not so sure I’m ready to give love another go.

Tucker

The war took my hearing, but I’m alive. Many of my friends are not. I am building a life with my best friend, Dennis. We have become practically inseparable. And now, we are more than friends. I’ve never had feelings like these for a man. My parents, my brother, my buddy, Duke—will they understand how I feel about Dennis? Can I risk losing my family?

Blurb: The love of my life is dead.

Is there really a reason to live anymore?

I’m a war veteran who has suffered great tragedies overseas. Not only have I lost my right foot, but I have also lost my wife. Both at the hands of terrorists. Recurrent nightmares, a dead end job, and a painful limp are all I have left. Not much of a reason to wake up in the morning if you ask me. I’m struggling to carry on in this very lonely excuse of a life. The only reason I’m still swimming is because I have my best friend, Tucker, and my sister, Lizette, keeping me afloat.

Tucker has been my saving grace. I would not be here if it weren’t for him…literally. We have become practically inseparable since moving in together. And then, out of nowhere, there are these feelings and emotions. The kind that I haven’t felt in years; not since I lost the love of my life. The kind that I’m not sure I can handle, or even want to. But they have started wrapping around my broken and shattered heart, trying to mend it – whether I’m ready for it or not. Only they are not for a woman as you would expect, but for the man suddenly sharing my bed.

Am I ready to give love another go? I’m not so sure that I have it in me.

But then again, I’m tired of being at war.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Let’s face it, most of us read because we want to read about broken and damaged people getting better and finding their HEA along the way. And that is exactly what we get here. This is the first book I’ve read by Andria Large, and if it’s any indication, I am greatly looking forward to the rest of the series (even if a sneaky peek tells me then end of book 2 is a horrible cliff hanger!).
But, I’m not here to talk about the next book, even if I cannot wait to get my hands on it!

This is the story about two war vets, who have become best friends after going through their own share of tragedy and injury while on tour in the Middle East. The story is told primarily by Dennis, who suffers crippling PTSD and depression after losing limbs in a roadside bombing as well as losing his journalist/war-correspondent wife years earlier. Tucker is Dennis’s best friend and he lost his hearing in a bombing (different to Dennis’s) where he had lost his hearing and his best friend.

Some intimacy issues leads to a rather hot and heavy and intriguing situation between the guys. This ultimately leads to the realisation that they may be, quite possibly, gay for each other. Some rather intriguing minor characters pop up, mostly Tucker’s friend Duke and Dennis’s sister is simply a joy.

My only criticism is that I feel that the part of Dennis’s depression which leads to sitting on his bed with a gun ready to fire was overlooked after Dennis and Tucker hooked up. It felt as though Tucker was the cure for his depression, which I think is not really the kind of message that should be used when it comes to such serious mental illness.

Other than that, enjoy and possibly shed a tear or two over these two remarkable guys. The ending is left open with a bit of teasing of what’s to come.

Blurb: Parker Hamilton – movie star! That’s what the world knows about me. Oscar winner, prominent bloodline, playboy. But there is so much more to me. My friends are my real family, and they are what matters most. But I’d be lying if I said that I’m not concerned about my reputation. Everyone who lives in the spotlight is.

Listen, I can play any role – drama, comedy, romance. You name it. I can act my ass off, and I have the proof on a shelf in my office. But when my agent calls me into his office to offer me the role of a lifetime, I am hesitant. Not only would I have to act opposite Chance Steele, the most egotistical schmuck I know, but we would also have to pretend to be intimate. Really intimate. As in gay lovers.

Now, don’t get me wrong; I am as open-minded as they come. People can love whom they want, screw whom they want, even marry whom they want. But when you ask me to make out with a dude, pretend to roll around in a bed with him, well, that’s where I draw the line. Maybe.

Sometimes lines are blurry. And sometimes lines are just meant to be crossed.

Review: This is book three in the series and they can be read in order. This one was amazing and I absolutely loved it. Well, once I got past the hetro sex scenes, that is. Give me two hot men any day, but I lose interest really fast when it is a man and woman.

However I knew with this story that I would get my true love scene soon enough. I think Chance is my favorite out of this story, however Parker does own up to his mistakes in the end. For that, I was cheering him on.

Parker grew up rich as one can be, but his family was horrible. They acted as if they owned it all and everyone around them owed them. Parker had started out doing what the family wanted, and then he found out that he was a better actor then a lawyer. He was also straight or so he thought. That is until he takes a job where he has to be gay. His on the scene lover is none other than a man he can’t stand. However, there is something about Chance that eventually draws him in.

Chance had the worst childhood, that a child could have. His mother was a prostitute and his dad was an alcoholic. Raised within the foster care system, he knew what true pain was. His last foster home, left him feeling hatred and anger. His foster brother had raped him every night until one night he left and stayed in shelters after that. Now a famous movie star he argued with Parker all the time, but there was a part of him that wanted Parker for his own. Now he knows he isn’t as straight as he said he was.

When these two men get together they are hot and burn up the sheets around them. The problem was Chance wanted it known to all that they were together, but Parker was the one with issues. Will Parker loose the man he has fallen in love with because he can’t come out nor will he prove that he is in love with an absolute gem.

I loved this book. It has lots of passion and fire in it. Two straight men who can’t do anything but fight each other realize that they need each other more than anyone could. It gave me two sexy men, hot sex, angst, pain, anger, excitement, and surprises. If you love those then read this story because it gives you that and much more. I can’t wait to read the other books in this series, well unless they have girly parts, that is.

Portia’s Two Cents:  It might have taken Chance a minute to figure out he loved Parker, but when he does…Wowza…I soooooo want a proposal like the one that ends this book. 🙂
