Love for the Seasons series - Release Day for As the Ice Melts by R J Jones #mm #romance

  The perfect job or the perfect man. Surely Aiden and Noah can have both, right?

Aiden Turner's world flipped upside down when his vengeful ex-boyfriend destroyed a major project, costing his uncle’s architectural firm an important client. Feeling guilty, Aiden has since sworn off all romantic involvement with anyone he works with.

Noah Walker is getting ready to interview for his dream role when he catches Aiden’s eye on the London Tube. They strike up a conversation, and even though the attraction sizzles between them, Noah must decline the offer of a morning coffee. The interview is crucial, and he needs to focus on getting the job, not getting a date. 

When Aiden discovers the enigmatic man on the train is the same man he is interviewing, he is torn. But he knows Noah is the right man for the job, and he attempts to put some professional distance between them. However, it's not long before Noah makes his way under Aiden’s skin.

Neither man can afford to risk their employment, but keeping their relationship a secret takes its toll. When things get ugly, they need to decide what’s more important—or if the job is worth the sacrifice


Noah has a job interview, his dressed well and he has done his research, so his keeping his fingers crossed.

Aiden has to do interviews, it's down to two candidate's but his yet to meet applicants.

Upon meeting they realise they've met before, if only briefly and annoyingly there's a spark there. 

Office relationships are not allowed, so the pair of them do the best they can to avoid showing they fancy each other, but the more time they spend together the more they realise how well they get on and with that spark that's growing into a flame they will eventually have to give in..

This author writes great mm books. I found this an enjoyable and easy read, without too much angst. The characters are both likeable and passionate.

*I received an arc for an honest review

Book 2 released today!!

As hearts begin to thaw, a betrayal of trust threatens to put out the flames.

When Marcus McDonald receives a formal warning from his employer, he knows it’s time to tuck tail and head home to Manchester. His medical condition forces him to keep people at arm’s length, and it wouldn’t be the first time his temperament has landed him in trouble.

All Adam Radney wants is some time to paint, but his father’s death, leaving Adam and his mum up to their ears in debt, means taking on two jobs. Working at the family’s run-down Manchester fish and chip shop, Adam is confronted by a new, surly face in town and instantly dislikes the icy newcomer. So what if he pushes all of Adam’s hot buttons?

When the ice melts and things heat up between Marcus and Adam, Adam thinks all his dreams have come true. With Marcus’s help, new customers arrive and the chip shop starts to flourish, easing Adam’s mind. But when Adam puts all his trust in Marcus on the busiest night the shop has seen in years, thing go awry and it leaves Adam with more questions than answers.


This book is Marcus story, we met him in book 1, he was the one trying to cause trouble for Aiden and Noah! I knew the author would win me over, as a good author can always make you like a characther you previously disliked.

Marcus has returned to his home town, his estranged from his mum, so heads straight to his devoted nans. We get to see another side to mark and find out much more about his difficult life.

Adam lives and works with his mum in the local chip shop, they work hard to keep a roof over their head.

Marcus and Adam are in the same area and meet soon after he returns home. I think it's fair to say at the beginning they didn't take to one another, but meeting up in the chippy and the local gay bar means they start to talk. 

This book is another heart-warming read from this author, perfect for curling up on the sofa one evening. It has its sexy moments too!

I really liked that both the characthers are average good looking guys that live normal lives.

I Look forward to reading more in this series.

Book 1 of 2

Jason escapes into the magic of a Broadway play every weekend. Musicals always have a happy ending and for a few hours he can believe there’s a happy ending waiting for him, too. When the tall drink of water who works on the top floor of Jason’s building, wants to take him on a date, Jason is surprised. After all, Jason is awkward and skinny, and sees himself as a boring accountant, while Paul is tall, dark, and incredibly hot.

Despite Jason’s reservations, Paul and Jason start dating and attending the shows Jason adores. But if Paul likes musicals as much as Jason, why does he always doze off? Is Paul leading a double life? Does he have a wife tucked away somewhere?

Jason knows Paul is hiding something and when the secrets come out, Jason finds his fantasy comes to life, right there on the stage.

Two best friends take a year off to find themselves… and end up finding each other.

Joshua Simpson has just finished four years at Purdue University, but that’s not why he’s buzzing with excitement. Once they’ve said goodbye to their families, Josh and his best friend Alex are taking off to discover America in an old but reliable VW van, planning on not seeing snow for an entire year.

Josh has always considered himself straight—except for that one time in college—so when he and Alex are living in such close proximity on the road, he’s unsure what these new feelings mean. Is it because they’re spending 24/7 together, or is it something deeper? And does it really matter since Josh has only ever seen Alex with women?

While in Oregon, Josh meets Johnno, a sexy but confusing Aussie surfer. While having an impromptu surfing lesson, Johnno helps Josh realize who he is and what he wants—but Alex’s reaction leaves Josh confused.

From a Montana ranch to the bright lights and dangerous streets of Los Angeles, to a dark and lonely deserted highway in Alabama, join Josh and Alex as they drive around the US, discovering not only who they are, but who they can be together.
