Read all three stories of small town romance in this exclusive bundle of M.J. O’Shea’s Rock Bay series!
In Coming Home, Tally has to pull out all the stops to prove to Lex, his gorgeous boss at the local coffee shop, he was never really the jerk he seemed to be. If he can win Lex’s heart, the rest of the town should be a piece of coffee cake. In Letting Go, can Mason learn to trust again and can Drew learn to let go of who he thinks he is? If not, a real connection is nothing but a pipe dream. In Finding Shelter, both Justin and Logan have come to town hoping to leave troubled pasts behind them. They are attracted to each other too, but Justin is wary. Will Logan’s love, faith, and stubbornness be enough for Justin to believe their love is worth fighting for?
As a trilogy of Rock Bay, I am glad that I read this as a bundle and did not have to wait for each book. I just wanted to keep reading. As a bundle, you feel as though you never leave Rock Bay, and that you are a local citizen. All three stories of Lex and Tally, Mason and Drew, and Justin and Logan, are all intertwined. These men become friends and eventually family. I liked that as each one was introduced, they kept coming back into the stories, even though it may not have been their story.
M.J. O’Shea does a brilliant job of discussing hard to digest subjects, and writes them with clarity and compassion to make you feel like you are feeling their pain, their confusion, and their happiness. All three couples are completely different and yet all have that familial bond that should be cherished and not taken for granted. At times, I felt like I was one of friends in the circle and was there to enjoy their happy times and their sad times. I wanted to hug Lex, Mason and Justin. Logan and Tally just cracked me up and I felt their protectiveness. Drew and Logan were just so open-hearted and easy to love. Of course, in each story there is at least one character that you just want to murder. But that is what makes these stories all the more real and you find yourself cheering on each of the main characters and even a few of the secondary characters; Travis was perfect and Amy, well, try to find yourself not loving her.
Overall, this bundled collection of stories warmed my heart and was fun to read. If you haven’t read this series, I would totally recommend it.
M.J. O’Shea has been writing romance since algebra class in sixth grade (when most of her stories starred her and Leonardo DiCaprio). When she’s not writing, she loves listening to nearly all types of music, painting, reading great authors, and on those elusive sunny days in the Pacific Northwest, she loves driving on the freeway with her windows rolled down and her stereo on high.
