Book Review: Finding Mr. Wrong – Charlie Cochet

Published September 1, 2017
Format: Novel
Genre And Theme: LGBT, Gay Romance, Gay Fiction
Length: 169 pages, ebook
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Ebook ISBN: B074TCBFG7
Characters: Matthew Hart, Jax Foster

I absolutely loved this book! It is by far my favorite from the Dreamspun series! Charlie is simply a delightful storyteller. The story is as sweet as it can get and in a really, really good way!

He’s nobody’s definition of Mr. Right—but that might make him perfect.

Matthew Hart is heir to the family fortune and owner of Hart & Home. When a near-death experience has him fretting over the future, he decides he needs a husband, and not just any husband—an appropriate man to protect the Hart legacy. The last thing Matthew expects is to cross paths with Jax Foster, his first love and the boy who crushed his heart when he disappeared.

Jax is unlikely to make Matthew’s list of suitable candidates. Bad boy, vagabond, deep in debt, with a father who can’t keep out of trouble, Jax has nothing to offer—except his heart and a second chance at the romance they never got to explore.

So Matthew.  I loved him! He’s like the subdued version of Dex from the author’s THIRDS series (if you haven’t read this series, you should start now because you really don’t wanna miss out!) but he’s as lovable as Dex.

Jax. Oh, that name! Jax is Fabio with that sexy blonde locks and he is the Sloane Brody here (Haha! Sorry for the THIRDS connection. Not sorry! ) The strong, sexy, quiet alpha male who couldn’t seem to get a break.

Then there’s Adam the good-ol-super adorable assistant! I loved him from the get go and couldn’t wait to read his own story!

Speaking of the story – there’s nothing very unusual about it but the flow from start to finish is perfection. You’d fall for the characters right away. The plot is in fact very TV soap-ish but the whole cheesy romantic reunion just clicked real good here. I was hoping for more pages when I finished it. I want to read more from Matthew and Jax and I’ve a feeling that I’d see them again because there is no way Adam isn’t getting his own love story!!!

Highly Recommended!

Book Review: Marriage of Inconvenience – M.J. O’Shea

Marriage of InconvenienceDate of Publication: August 15, 2016
Genre and Themes: LGBTQI, Romance, Hollywood
Format: 214 pages, ebook
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Cover Artist: Bree Archer
ISBN: 9781634775281
Characters: Kerry Pickering, Jericho Knox

Lights, Camera, Lies.

Kerry Pickering has a problem. As a publicist for Hollywood bad boy Jericho Knox, it’s Kerry’s job to keep Jericho in the news. So far, Jericho’s partying and public escapades have made it easy. But Jericho has a secret, and when that secret is revealed in the most spectacularly disastrous way, it’s up to Kerry to spin it.

The team decides the best course of action is to make the public fall in love—with Jericho’s secret committed relationship. The one that doesn’t exist. Yet.

The team wants someone they can trust. Someone in the inner circle. That someone is Kerry. But what will happen when Kerry realizes that for him, the romance is no longer pretend? Can Jericho love him back, or is he just playing a role?


It feels like it’s been forever since I’ve read something from M.J. O’Shea! She’s one of my favorite authors so to have read this beautiful story is such a treat because I feel like she’s in her element with this one 100%!!!! I’m so ready to dance like there’s no tomorrow because I fucking love it!!! My thirst has been quenched! M.J. is so back!!!

Okay, that’s me fantarding over M.J.  because I just totally adore this story!!! And this may just be the best one from the Dreamspun Desires Series! Whoot Hoot!  There’s nothing extraordinarily new about the story, it’s just that the writing is overflowing with loveliness!   I super-loved Kerry’s character. He’s a classic M.J. ‘s character – the all kinds of adorable kind of character. Jericho’s character however was not as likable until he stops being a jerk to Kerry. There was no major conflict here but it didn’t bother me one bit because it’s just all kinds of lovely – what with Kerry and Jericho falling for each other during their supposed ‘charade.’  I liked that they didn’t fall for each other hours upon their meeting.

 This is a book goodie all of you mm book lovers should get a hold of. Short, sweet, and just overall feelgood.

Book Review: Taylor Maid – Tara Lain

Taylor MaidPublished March 1st 2016
Format: Novel
Genre And Theme: Romance / Contemporary
Length: 218 pages, ebook
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Ebook ISBN: 9781634768146
Cover Artist: Paul Richmond
Characters: Taylor Fitzgerald, Alessandro Macias, Ally May

On the eve of his twenty-fifth birthday, Taylor Fitzgerald discovers that he must marry a woman before midnight or lose a fifty-million-dollar inheritance. Only problem is that he’s gay and who will he convinced to play as his last-minute bride?

Enter the beautiful maid, Ally May from Vegas. She’s the perfect candidate for Taylor’s plan but Ally is actually Alessandro Macias, son of a Brazilian hotel magnate who’s also on the run. With all these pretense, will they be able to make it work and realized in the end that they’re actually made for each other?

This was just sweetness overload! I really enjoyed reading this one! I loved Taylor and Ally so much and their love-story is just oozing with cuteness! It’s obviously a play from Chris O’Donnell’s The Bachelor and I just adore everything about it! It also reminds me of Sinders and Ash from the autho’s. Remember Sinders penchant for wearing her own designs?

This was my first from the Dreamspun Series and I’ve read not so many good reviews from the earlier books so I’m kinda worried on picking this up and I’m sure glad I did because it was everything I needed at the moment – something feel good, something really sweet and truly romantic! I highly recommend this one!
