Title: Clique (Heartsville)
Author Name: Jayden Brooks
Publication Date & Length: October 29, 2015 – 78 pgs
Adam Locke’s youthful looks aren’t the blessing everyone seems to think. At twenty-eight, he’s a successful photographer with his own studio and respected by his peers—but that doesn’t seem to matter to the men who catch his eye. Instead, he’s brushed aside like an underage twink with a daddy fetish.
When a hot, bearded stranger stops him from accidentally walking into traffic, Adam looks up and finds the man of his dreams. Unfortunately, his first meeting with Brandon ends with him being dismissed as a kid. Again. Adam can’t help his annoyance. He also can’t help staring (and drooling) whenever he spots Brandon walking through the neighborhood with a different dog.
He watches from afar, wondering about Brandon’s story—until the day he’s dared to take another chance. It’s just the push Adam needs, and finally, he catches Brandon’s interest. Now if only he could figure out the key to getting taciturn Brandon to open up and let Adam in. But Adam knows sometimes all it takes is a little patience for the last piece to click into place.
In the Heartsville Series this book is 4th in a 5 book series and is my favorite. Jayden Brooks has a quirky sarcasm that makes you laugh and even when you shouldn’t laugh you do. Her characters made me want to hang out with them and see what they would say next. I didn’t put this one down. I look forward to reading anything that Jayden writes.
Welcome to the latest installment of the of the Heartsville series. And what an installment it is.
After reading the first two pages one word came to mind: Wow! Adam’s thought process is…. unique. It made me gasp and giggle all at the same time. The way he looks at the world and situations is different from anyone elses. Which makes sense because he is a photographer. So, he looks at the world through his own camera lens, so to speak.
Adam and Brandon’s relationship is also extraordinary. It involves various breeds of dogs, including one that loves toes, globe-trotting parents and muscle men who try to make Adam into a sandwich with Adam as the filling.
I highly recommend this book. Not only was it a joy to read but it was very fun and hard to put down.
This is another book from the Heartsville series and what can I say but that I loved it. This is my first book by this author and Jayden Brooks just has a way to make me laugh. I loved that Adam got his story and found love. That all he really wanted, but was constantly taken as a kid not an adult. All though this story, I could be heard laughing and giggling. The theme in this story was clearly an opposite attract and the author was able to keep my interest through the whole book.
Jayden Brooks is a pretty cool chick. Just ask her friends. She’s a woman of great mystery and suspense, but she can’t tell a lie without confessing. She’s fond of gingers, tea, and tales of hot men falling in love with each other—not necessarily in that order. She lives in the suburbs of Chicago with her family, a golden retriever who goes by the name of Mickey, and a cat who wandered in one day and never left. More than anything, she believes that love is love, and everybody deserves a chance at a happily ever after.
