Overall, this is a very good series that I can easily recommend. I am definitely looking forward to the next three books and am still hoping for a HEA for Brian and Jamie! Jul 20, Daanquai rated it it was amazing Shelves: favorites. Once again, I find myself reading a book that I can't put down until I've read all the way through.
Not surprising with this author as I was hooked with the first 2 books in this series as well. This story is just a continuation of Brian's search for Jaime as he tries to settle in San Diego while he's searching. He finds a room at a gay-friendly boardinghouse and meets Mike, who immediately befriends him.
I thought the author beautifully pulled off their friendship. That despite sleeping togethe Once again, I find myself reading a book that I can't put down until I've read all the way through. That despite sleeping together regularly OMG, how hot are those sex scenes?!
This was such a realistic scene as Brian is only 18 and by that time hasn't seen Jamie in over a year and a half. I believe there is a difference in emotionally cheating and physically cheating.

Their story was absolutely amazing and in the end of the last book, I kept waiting for the other shoe to drop after they go back but they ended up happy which made me happy These books are absolutely addictive. How can Papa Bear swim in the sea underwater? Kraus , Common Sense Media. The story begins directly after the previous book. What a lucky day that I found your website! From what I gathered the mother had been murdering young children for years and the girl knew and was forced to keep quiet, the mother being very manipulative and abusive.
What Brian and Mike had was just a "friends with benefits" relationship that worked for me. The cliffhanger the author's trademark, maybe? Waiting on pins and needles for the next book!!! Jul 22, Dawnlxix rated it really liked it Shelves: mm-romance , suspense , angst , series. Man, what a heinous cliff-hanger! I need the next book in the series now! I've been reading J. Barnaby's work for a few years now.
I'm pretty familiar with her style of writing and know that a HEA ending isn't necessarily in the cards.
And I'm OK with that- as long as the plot develops in a way that seems true to the reality of the character's situations it's all good. What worries me is that this is only book 3 of a 6 book series and I have a feeling that books 4 and 5 at least, and possibly b Man, what a heinous cliff-hanger! What worries me is that this is only book 3 of a 6 book series and I have a feeling that books 4 and 5 at least, and possibly book 6 are going to be a really angsty read.
I guess I'll have to stock up on tissue and hope that the wait between books is not too long. View 1 comment. I love love love this series!! I do think Brian's journey from Alabama to California was a bit long and didn't do much to add to the storyline, but once he got there, things picked up. I felt Brian's heart break as he searched for Jamie and I enjoyed his friendship with Mike, Emilio and the rest of the guys.
Definitely continuing on with this series :. Oct 10, Joy rated it liked it Shelves: m-m , nook-lendable. Brian has turned 18 and goes to San Diego in his quest to find Jamie. There is no sign of Jamie but Brian discovers gay bathhouses and porn instead. Um, yay?
I really like the heart wrenching pure romance of this series. The sex on every page and the porn twist in this book kinda killed the series for me.

Read 46 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Finally together, Brian McAllister and Jamie Mayfield have risked everythin.
There is a strong sense of community where he is and he feels at home. Very homesick for his parents, but he finally feels like he fits in somewhere. The hard part comes when he actually needs to search for Jamie. Now no one knows where he is. Is he on the streets? In a shelter? All Brian can do is work to make enough money so he can continue to stay in San Diego and search. Realistically though, it has been almost two years since he has seen him. I still enjoy this series but I will say the angst and emo drama is getting to me a little bit. This book is all about Brian starting a new life.
Finding new friends and becoming independent. It is a huge step for Brian. But he eventually finds some guys at an all-gay housing development that open their arms to him.
