Author Name & Publisher: Nic Starr (Dreamspinner Press)

Tim Walker is a free man. He’s broken up with his girlfriend and is ready to move on to a new relationship. But the relationship he wants to pursue is fraught with challenges. Firstly, Scott Richardson is a man, and only Tim’s closest friends know Tim’s bisexual. Secondly, everyone knows Scott relishes the single life. And then there’s the big one: Scott is the younger brother of Tim’s best friend, Paul.
Scott can’t deny an attraction to his brother’s friend Tim. Lean, dark blond, and blue-eyed, Tim is hot and hard not to notice—especially since Scott and Tim work together. Too bad the man is straight, and too bad Scott worries how Paul will react if Scott hooks up with his best friend.
Tim and Scott want to see if there’s a chance for more than friendship between them, but neither of them wants to lose Paul. Together, they must find the courage to follow their hearts and find a way to have it all.
I loved the first one in this series, and I enjoyed seeing the return of a few favorite characters. It was nice seeing Sam through his friends’ eyes, though I admit to missing Rob this time around.
Scott and Tim are both terrific, and their playfulness is fun to read. I’m a big fan of bisexual characters, and I thought overall, Tim was excellent. My two favorite things were that Tim continued to identify as bisexual even after being with Scott, and Scott completely got it without pushing Tim to be “really gay after all.” Plus, he gets points for doing it with gentle humor.
If you want something to read on a lazy, rainy day, this is a good choice. Heat and heart, low on drama.
Nic Starr lives in Australia where she tries to squeeze as much into her busy life as possible. Balancing the demands of a corporate career with raising a family and writing can be challenging but she wouldn’t give it up for the world.
Always a reader, the lure of m/m romance was strong and she devoured hundreds of wonderful m/m romance books before eventually realising she had some stories of her own that needed to be told!
When not writing or reading, she loves to spend time with her family–an understanding husband and two beautiful daughters–and is often found indulging in her love of cooking and planning her dream home in the country.
You can find Nic on Facebook, Twitter and her blog. She’d love it if you stopped by to say hi.
