How I Met Your Father. L.B. Gregg

Review from Jeannie Zelos Book Reviews.

I love romance, not the sweet M&B type, but the sort with something extra. I don’t care if its hetero or gay so long as its got lots of emotion. I’ve not read anything by this author before so wasn’t sure what to expect. I didn’t anticipate the wonderful humour though – at unexpected moments there’s be some dry, sharp witted comment that would make me choke with laughter.
How they meet – on the plane and after that was great, but then the scene at the wedding when Justin realises who Jack is – I could just picture that a real “oh sh..t” moment 🙂 Justin is still trying to hide behind his boy-band man slut image that was so important back when they were actively touring and recording, but now the band are all past that teen image part he still isn’t “out”, and as he still gets recognised he’s struggling with living a lie but doesn’t know how to get past it.
Jack, brilliant man, father of the bride and with a teenage son also at the wedding, he’s not close to his family and has only met his new son in law twice.
On the island with Jack Justin can’t help but succumb to his actions. Jacks far more confident, knows what he wants and goes out to get it. There’s a fantastic scene where some of the group are climbing to the summit of a volcano, and Justin and Jack get separated from the others and are caught at an impromptu moment by the rest of the group including the teenage Benji! Who’s not impressed at finding his father like that…
there’s so many funny one liners, dry humour, biting sarcasm wrapped up with some tender and sensual action between Jack and Justin, that its a short (98 pages)but very emotional and sensual read. It’s not a graphic sex on every other page book, but one where there’s a feeling of sexual tension, where the need between the two men is almost felt off the page, and when they do get together the heat generated feels so real. I loved it – just wish it was longer. It has the perfect ending too.
Stars: five – a great read 🙂

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
