    The third book in the Blackcreek series focuses on bar owner Mason and ex music teacher Gavin Both men are battling their parents for control over their lives Mason s parents want him to take over the family restaurant and Gavin s parents want him to pretend he isn t gay when they are together.I really enjoyed this book in the series but Stay remains my 1 and the chance to visit with the characters from the first 2 books One thing that was refreshing about this book was that Mason and Gavin became friends before they fell into bed While that was a nice change, they did end up labeling their relationship as friends with benefits for several months before falling in love that lack of emotion usually leaves me cold, but somehow worked here.A bonus to this story was a break up I always love a good break up, because it makes getting back together that much sweeter view spoiler The pro...

    2.5 Stars I fully acknowledge that my rating may be a smidgen harsh In fact, I would happily spring for an extra.25 stars if I believed in doing such a thing, but I don t, so awkward pause Anywhooo, I thought this book was just alright It wasn t particularly angsty, but nor was it particularly fluffy and sweet It just kind of was Quite frankly, this sort of middle of the road book tends to bore me a bit Overall, I found Gavin and Mason to be pretty stock romantic characters both instantly likable and relatable but entirely unexciting they were your everyman but not in a good way They met, they boned, they fell in love, and all of it was pretty yawn inducing I mean, for all their smexin and there is a delicious dose of it in this book , I still felt like I was missing true sizzle outside of the bedroom I will say that my favourite part was the repeated use of the Gavin, I think this is one of those times you kiss me shtick Melted me every single time Sidenote to any gay men currently reading this review If you re verse and your partner is an exclusive top or exclusive bottom, is this upsetting or frustrating to you Or do you just kinda roll with it because you love the other person I mean, I have to imagine that if someone I was shtupping with romantically didn t like half of what I enjoyed in the bedroom, it could become a bit of a problem So, inquiring minds want to know feel free to leave a comment below or PM me To ...

    3.5 Stars I have never had to pretend with you Even from the beginning, you knew who I was I showed that person to you before I did anyone else I started this book expecting to love, at least Mason, if not Gavin too And for the most part I did I liked both of them I just never really connected I wasn t overly anxious to see how things would go between them I was never really invested in their story It was such a shame too.Mason and Gavin connect over their reluctance to meet family their families expectations Mason doesn t want the to be responsible for his family s bussiness He doesn t want to run the Alexander s restaurants, no matter how succesful they might be And after learning the secret they have been keeping from him, he has never felt disconnected from his family than he does now.Now, that may make you believe that Mason s family are bastards That is soooo not the case I honestly thought that Mason was full of it Yes, learning something like he did when you are already 30 years old can be a shock to the system, I get it But his family loved him And I honestly think that if he had sat down and talked to them we would have been saved most of the drama.Gavin on the other hand had won the lottery on the Worst Kind of Parent pool His parents were the conservati...

    I really do love this series and the men in them I don t think I could even pick a favorite couple I adore them all Mason and Gavin were just so freaking perfect for each other I LOVED them together I loved that it wasn t instant love and that they were kind of friends with benefits just kind of feeling each other out and getting to know each other I enjoyed how the relationship developed and how they just gradually moved from hanging out to dating to being in a relationship Each transition of their relationship felt natural.Boy were their families all kinds of a hot mess Gavin s mom though I really wanted to smack the woman for all the guilt she kept laying on Gavin One of my favorite moments in the book is where Gavin is alone visiting his father and his dad is lucid for that visit and the conversation that followed totally had me tearing up and maybe even a few tears were let loose I couldn t help it That damn sappy shit got to me It was a beautiful moment for Gavin though I was thrilled for him.Mason had a lot of drama going on with his family To speak too much of it will just spoil it for others so...
