    jesus, take the wheel. when i get hurt, i get mad. and when i get mad, i cry like a lil bitch. i have muddy but intense memories of standing before my parents in their bedroom, like a criminal on trial, suffering some miscarriage of justice or other on account of being too headstrong, too strange, or too unchristian. i remember being so angry i couldn't even speak. powerless to argue. powerless to defend myself. i remember that fury. and the great big wave of helpless silence come to rob me of streng jesus, take the wheel. when i get hurt, i get mad. and when i get mad, i cry like a lil bitch. i have muddy but intense memories of standing before my parents in their bedroom, like a criminal on trial, suffering some miscarriage of justice or other on account of being too headstrong, too strange, or too unchristian. i remember being so angry i couldn't even speak. powerless to argue. powerless to defend myself. i remember that fury. and the great big wave of helpless silence come to rob me of strength and snuff-out my teenaged calls for revolución. when i got that mad, i couldn't talk. i couldn't explain. i'd just stand there, silently weeping, while my parents lied to me about the things i'd said or done. welp. that-all don't much trouble me no more. i read this book a year ago. i hated it, because it wounded me. i didn't say anything about it—didn't post a review—because i'd broken up with someone and the fallout was fucking me up every day. and then depression came out from under the bed to eat me up. just never had the calories for it. for explaining why this book was so damaging to me. but a year later this book gets nominated for Book of the Month in the alternative MM group i joined after i got my guts savaged by that racist piece of shit, the garconnier. so in the nomination thread i say, "fuck this book, i'm not voting for it." other members ask me why. i tell them: "because n.r. walker put hiv+ people in hospice care to die for dramatic impact in an office romance." awwwkwaaard. a few hours go by. nobody replies to me. i wonder if i'd just napalmed the thread for ever and ever, making it so everyone was afraid to pick a fucking book for the the BotM until friggin' march. but then: responses. they were pretty disheartening. "better she mentioned condoms at all, because safe sex is important," said someone i didn't know. "no she didn't," someone else said. a friend, in private. "did she? i feel like i'd remember something that fucked-up." "you know, this was written in '06, so you should cut her some slack," another friend said, in the thread. "and anyway it started as a fanfic, so." naturally, i turned into a ball of rage. i felt so alone. so... so misunderstood. i felt abused, too. how could these people speak over me with such confidence—at once—despite not being anything like me? or even like the stupid characters in the stupid book that started it all in the first place? rage. rage, i tell you. i didn't say anything. i didn't have the calories. depression steals your vitality and feeds on your dreams; it comes for you at night, and it comes for you when the sun shines sweet and golden on all the things you love. i stayed silent—but i did not cry. days go by. i do not reply. it's important that i do. i know it is—just like it's important that i write this review. important that i write down these thoughts, and share them, so that maybe some day soon fewer people have to suffer the effects of fuckery like this. but days go by, and i let them. them and a couple others. i still do not reply. nobody else does. these people who rhetorically stepped on my throat to dismiss and silence me—their comments sat there, un-rebutted. unchallenged. taken as the truth, just like the bullshit in the book. but then! outta nowhere, tonight at 2AM, i find the calories. i start tapping away on my ipad like a maniac. and when i'm done, i've written one massive comment: i don't care where it came from, or what it used to be. because right now it alienates people living with HIV by perpetuating the stereotype that HIV-positive people are disease vectors who could kill you. it explicitly uses your (very real) fear of death by means of HIV to sell (very fictional) condoms, by making a direct connection between people who have HIV and a sad, painful, lonely expiration in a hospice ward a mere year after infection with HIV. HIV, which never kills anyone. as opposed to AIDS, which does. if a real advertising agency proposed this campaign—wan, sickly people coughing in their death beds lamenting how they received a death sentence for having sex without a condom—there would be an uproar. people would lose their jobs. because that's just not true, and it's incredibly insensitive besides. hence my rage. these ideas are toxic, and hurtful. and incorrect. to say nothing of lazy and appropriative. and that book perpetuates them, thoughtlessly, endlessly, forever. * look: imagine you have HIV. imagine someone who doesn't know you and is not like you decides to use HIV infection (and people with HIV just like you) to make a point about safe sex. imagine they do so in a romance novel read and rated by thousands of people. imagine all those people subconsciously thinking of you—and all people like you—as INFECTED WITH SOMETHING THAT WILL KILL THEM IF THEY HAVE SEX WIH YOU. if they love you. imagine an author doing that. to you. in the book you're reading. right now. now imagine they get it wrong. * authors should approach writing about groups to which they do not belong with extraordinary care, because the results can be at best disrespectful and at worst completely toxic and appropriative. the bare minimum requirements do not change even if we are talking about white people writing about people of color, or able-bodied people writing about disabled people. it's disgusting. and unbelievably painful. and a product of privileges others do not hold. if you want to write about a group to which you do not belong, you need to be cautious. you need to work harder and do much, much more than regurgitate deranged shit you heard from some dumb bitch at recess in the fifth grade. because anything less invites mistakes that can literally and actually hurt real human people. forever. n.r. walker does not belong to that group. she does not have HIV. she didn't check with anyone who had HIV. or she wouldn't have gotten it so terribly wrong. * i think we need to examine why it's so easy for her—and people like her—to appropriate people and things she has no experience of, no matter the dangers to those people and things, without being challenged. that book came out ten years ago, and yet—incredibly—it appears i'm the first to take issue with that aspect of it. i think we need to examine why someone pointing out why this is painful and incorrect is immediately dismissed, where her clearly insufficient authority is not. even people who know me—friends—didn't think anything of stepping in to speak confidently about things that are not part of their daily reality. i think we need to ask why this is a thing that happens in MM every single day. seriously. i think we really, really need to ask why. as a community of artists, and readers, and friends, and family. as a community of people. because if this is representation—if this is allyhood— ...she can fucking keep it. * so yeah. yeah, you bet your ass i'm going after n.r. walker. because she may have made her mistakes in this book back in 2006, but those mistakes were decades after she should have known better. and she's never corrected them. and just like that, i am silent no more. and i feel great. ...presumably because i let __________ so this, then, is the review i should have written a year ago: ...nope. nope, nope, nope. my thoughts—besides NOPE—are as follows. the majority of this is charming. really! pacey and funny and sexy. i was a happy guy! yay, fun. but then this... Cameron's mother's smile faded. "Except not having cornflakes, as opposed to condoms, won't change the course of your life," she said softly. Then she explained, "I do some volunteer work at the local respite house for people living with HIV... Sometimes it doesn't cost you the price of a condom. Sometimes it costs you a whole lot more." ...perturbed me. is she... is she saying that not using a condom will cost you your life because you'll get HIV? why is she lecturing her son and his boyfriend about the potential consequences of sex over breakfast, like they're not grown-assed men and/or capable of managing their own bodies and how they use them together without her guidance? but i let it go. people do that a lot. reeeeeeeeeal quick to tell gay dudes to 'be safe,' like that's a thing that would never have occurred to them in all their days if it weren't for some het lady donning the Vestments of the Oracle and clutching at them fretfully to deliver a warning in dire tones. over breakfast. like that's a thing you would do to anyone else? like someone would even tolerate you doing that to them, randomly? like, biiitch? which part of 'hello, i am a homosexual' did you interpret as an invitation to take the fucking wheel? people are as afraid of me as they are afraid for me. and it's something i'm reminded of every day. i'm used to it. ...so i move on, like i said. then this happens: The footage was unedited, as real as it can possibly be. A lady, once possibly beautiful, sat with a blanket over her lap. But it was Cameron's voice which sounds on-screen first. "Just start with your name," he prompted. The lady smiled, though her ingrained sorrow remained. "My name is Amy," she said. "I was diagnosed with HIV four years ago. I had unprotected sex..." her voice trailed away. "I was young, thought 'that can't happen to me'." She looked off camera and coughed. Cameron waited patiently before his voice asked, "How much did it cost you?" She smiled without humor. "Everything." The footage cut then, and the on-film Cameron sat down beside a man. "My name is James," the man said. "I'm HIV positive. Been here for 12 months now," he added, looking around the room. "Treat me real nice here, they do." On the footage, Cameron's voice said, "How much does your medication and treatment cost you a month?" James answered, "I don't got no benefits... just for my meds, about a hundred bucks every month." I watched the footage, unblinking. When it finished, I looked across. He was watching me, waiting for my reaction. "Cameron, it was..." my voice was quiet as I tried to find the right word. "...it’s brilliant." OMG OMG NO NO IT IS NOT FUCKING BRILLIANT ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR FUCKING—what even is this shit? [outraged gobbling intensifies] ...but as this was some ungodly hour of the night, i had nobody with whom to share my outrage. and, honestly, the book had been mostly really nice up to that point. so after a couple hours of idek what anymore—something other than reading the fucking book that just kicked me in the nuts—i resumed. whatever, i dunno, i'm stupid, i have mild OCD about unfinished things, go fuck yourself, am i the one telling this goddamned story or are y—ok, here it go. i read on. and for a bit (six whole pages!!!), everything was fine. but THEN: Then I heard other voices, and when I walked into the staff room, he was there. He was talking to the cleaning staff, a man and a woman he called Gustavo and Maria, and they were speaking in Spanish. They stopped talking when I walked in. "Don't mind me," I told them. "Just want coffee." I set about making myself a straight black, and as I was waiting for the water to boil, their conversation resumed. Once again, like I wasn't even there. And my already thin patience started to crack. I tried not to eavesdrop, but then I heard my name. "Across the hall from me," Cameron said quietly in Spanish to Maria. And I knew then he was talking about me. "Ah, si," the older lady said. "The new boy. You like working with him?" she questioned him in Spanish. Cameron hesitated, but answered, still speaking in Spanish. "Very much. He's very good at what he does." I could feel my patience and my temper stretch tight and I turned around to face them. "That's me," I said in Spanish. "Selling the unsellable." Cameron's face paled, whether at me speaking Spanish, or because I repeated his very words back. I smiled at Cameron, well, it was probably more of a sneer, and after one glance between us, Gustavo and Maria quietly disappeared out the door. I stared at Cameron, and he stared at me. I almost snarled when I spoke. "If you want to say something to me, Cameron, then fucking say it in English. And say it. To. Me." He gritted his teeth. "Gustavo and Maria don't speak English very well. They've worked for my father since I was a kid. I will speak with them however the hell I want." yay, representation. my mama always said: all jobs are honorable. i should be as proud of my assistant superintendent job picking through rich white people's rubbish on garbage day as i was of running an adult education program across four boroughs of new york city while still teaching six classes to the tune of literally the highest standardized exam pass rate the city university of new york had ever seen. but. y'know. honor, and whatnot. yes, mom! *dead-eyed stare, eyes haunted and so very eloquent of soul-reaving despair* why do my people always have to be cleaning servicepersons, supers, and nannies? whyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy? answer: because they can't always be drug-running gang members! *rimshot* [btw, the above excerpt comprises the sum total representation and dialogue of POC in the whole book.] so my tostones were pretty burnt over that. but!!! again!!! i'm used to it. really, really, really used to it. He turned the two remaining boards to face them, and their reactions were immediate. The two boards were in black and white; one male, one female; both gaunt, drawn and obviously unwell. ...oh, fuck you. i mean, honestly. Cameron told them, "Fletcher Advertising donates to a local respite centre that specializes in HIV care. I filmed this there," he said, starting the visual presentation. The footage of the two patients, Amy and James, started and our three guests watched in silence. It was confronting and so very fucking real. I got cold shivers watching it, hearing their short but tragic stories, how the mere cost of a condom, or more importantly, the lack-there-of, cost them so much. SO, SO SO MUCH. BCUZ HIV. THE REAPER OF FOOLS. DARWIN'S SCYTHE™!!! "...just how sure are you this gay aspect will work?" "Mr. Makenna," I started, but Cameron cut me off. "I know this will work, Mr. Makenna," he said, his eyes darted to the CCTV camera, then back to the man in front of us. "I know this will work, because I'm gay." hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahanope. and: He laughed, but I told him, "But I also don't want you to ignore me. I don't expect us to be anything less than professional, but I also don't want you to treat me like I mean nothing to you." Fuck. Now I sounded like a girl. yay, misogyny! triple fuckery bonus points! what's next, appallingly disrespectful and appropriative disability porn? *wince* but wait! there's more!!! He bit his lip, to stop from smiling it would seem. “As in a date?” “Yes, as in a date,” I answered. Great. Now I was grinning and giddy like a girl. but then there's even more! omfg it's a fucking bonanza!!!!!!!! And that choked-up, emotional lump appeared in my throat again. Fuck. I was turning into a girl. AND THEN!!! then there's... ...then there's whatever the the fuck in christendom this is: The ad features a sad and lonely little puppet sock, in a drab, colorless world, who appears to be looking for something he's lost. He passes pretty socks, even handsome socks, but shakes his head and keeps walking. He does look twice at one particular colorful, striped sock – which Cameron insisted on and still found hilarious - but this poor little sock just can't find what he is looking for. Unable to go on, he is just about to pull a thread to unravel himself, when a cartoon ambulance pulls up, the doctor-socks grabs him, lays him on a gurney and rushes him away. The doctors perform CPR, and when they hit him with paddles, his little sock back arches off the bed. Finally the ambulance doors open, and the animated world is bright and colourful, Wizard of Oz style. "Where am I?" the sock asks. "Caiusaro," a soft voice answers. "It's Heaven for socks. Heaven for feet." ...which accounts for the cunningly alliterative cover, i guess? so yeah. that happened. to my face. last year. and those feelz carried over into this year, because i didn't have the energy to deal with it like i knew i could. like i knew i should. so. there was a lot to like in this book—and lots that wasn't. but mostly... ...mostly i was mad about the "HIV."

Walker, I go to the author’s page to click on the “become a fan” button, and I realize I already clicked it. So, Ms. Walker, I think Lucas Hensley and Cameron Fletcher longed for each other secretly for months, and now they have to work together. They have sixty-five hours to come up with a shining new advertisement campaign for a lifestyle product company. Both Lucas and Cameron are awesome characters. Lucas is amazing with his humor, openness, irresistible hat tip gesture on his invisible hat, and his foot fetish. "Care to explain the hat tipping thing, Mr. Hensley?" "When I was little, there used to be an old man who sat outside the general store, and every time I'd walk in there with my Mom, he'd tip an invisible hat. He wouldn't say a word, just do this hat-tipping thing. My Mom would smile for a full five minutes. It made all the ladies smile." I smiled myself as I recalled. "When I was about six, I did it to Mrs. Barnett at the grocery store, and she gave me a lollipop for being a gentleman." And the beautiful, “almighty”, immaculate and distant Cameron Fletcher, with his sweetness and sock fetish. Evidently, they are made for each other. I loved the situation (forced together to create a campaign for a condom and sex aids company - hilarity ensues!), loved the main characters, loved their parents – they are perfect. Yes, the story is perfection and full of sweetness, but the author somehow manages to serve it all that you never get cheesed off. The erotica is the best: kinky, scorching hot and laugh-out-loud funny at the same time. "Oh, holy shit!" Cameron cried. "They really do glow in the dark!" I returned to the bed after flipping the light switch and knelt back on the bed. "I told you!" I shuffled up to him, both of us on our knees, our illuminated cocks protruding between us. I felt the conflict a little bit forced, but that is my only complaint. Sixty Five Hours is a pure delight to read, a super sexy, super fun love story. Highly recommended!

    That was SO SWEET. Can everyone join with me now in saying *awww* Loved it. Two young, smart men falling in love. First, Cameron broke my gay-dar, then he turned me into an emotional sap. ~Lucas It's alright Lucas, you no longer need the one and the other will serve you well in your new relationship. Eeeek, I'm just feeling all kinds of good after finishing this story.

    If you love office romances with a touch of enemies to lovers (just a teeny bit touch because it will not last for long), then you will most probably love this story. Lucas and Cameron are both in their mid twenties and they both work for Fletcher Advertising, a company that belongs to Cameron's dad. Lucas is happy and gay. Cameron is always unhappy and straight (possibly – this is what Lucas thinks anyway because all the girls in the company want him). One Friday evening The Boss asks them to del If you love office romances with a touch of enemies to lovers (just a teeny bit touch because it will not last for long), then you will most probably love this story. Lucas and Cameron are both in their mid twenties and they both work for Fletcher Advertising, a company that belongs to Cameron's dad. Lucas is happy and gay. Cameron is always unhappy and straight (possibly – this is what Lucas thinks anyway because all the girls in the company want him). One Friday evening The Boss asks them to deliver a new marketing idea for Lurex. Lurex is the biggest lifestyle product company according to Mr. Fletcher or (more accurately) the biggest manufacturer of condoms, personal lubricant and sex aides in the country. Lucas and Cameron need to work together to complete this idea. And the problems are three: 1. They have to finish it until Monday. The only available time they have is 65 hours (hence the title of this book) 2. Cameron does not like Lucas. Is he homophobic? Or just permanently grumpy and hates everybody? 3. Lucas is very much attracted to Cameron. Since the day they met for first time. As the weekend proceeds and they start working together at Cameron's house, Lucas realises that the attraction is mutual and Cameron is very much gay and very much uncomfortable about this fact and he is deep hidden in the closet trying not to disappoint mainly his father. This situation does not let Cameron being happy. He did not manage to continue with any of his old relationships and flings and he always made his past lovers miserable. Now Cameron opens up to Lucas and for the first time in his life, he feels that the pressure is gradually leaving him. This weekend will feel free. Cameron and Lucas will have fun. They will go to gay clubs (for research purposes obviously). They will laugh, share the stories of their lives, share meals, keep company to each other trying to finish the project. There will be lack of sleep because the clock is ticking, tension because -although they feel attraction- they need to finish the job, bright ideas and good team work. Well, crazy socks and foot fetishes... There was never a doubt. It was always going to be a perfect match. I loved the story. It is funny, easygoing, fluffy, sweet. It resembles Lucas' character and his POV actually dominates the book. There is also a very interesting chapter with Cameron's father’s POV in the end. Oh and I forgot the most important thing: the story is FREE.

    F**KING. BRILLIANT. I'm blown away! Ms. Walker, you just turned me into a fan! Since I had friends here on Goodreads, great reviews for N.R. Walker's books floats on my feed from time to time. I was always intrigued as to why. And then I started to read one of her books with Dani (Hi there!). It was Taxes and TARDIS. I liked it. But it didn't wowed me. But this one, OH WOW. Everything was so great, it was perfect actually! The writing, the plot, the portrayal of the character's jobs F**KING. BRILLIANT. I'm blown away! Ms. Walker, you just turned me into a fan!

The writing, the plot, the portrayal of the character's jobs, the setting, the main characters, the secondary characters, their characterizations, the romance, the sex, the tackle of sensitive topics...all of it was AMAZING. Cameron & Lucas I can't find faults in this one. If there's one I can nitpick, it would be how this could happen in real life. But who cares? It's a romance read, not a newspaper. You would want to be transported to a world where two people who had different minds to find each other and fall for one another. This what the read did. And it was done beautifully. I'm almost floored with this one. Not only the story ended in a spectacular way, there was even a sweet bonus!!! And did I tell you that this is for FREE??? C'mon, just grab it! A VERY VERY VERY RECOMMENDED and A MUST READ for any M/M Romance fan. A great starter for those who want to delve to the M/M genre as well!

If a bit on the unrealistic side... I mean come on, I don't think it is possible to orgasm that many times in one day! For basically erotica, I think it's a solid 4 stars and a very easy read.

Lucas thought Cameron was one of the self-righteous man, who was wealthy, smart, and straight, with everyone fawning over him. Lucas also thought that Cameron couldn't stand the sight of him. But then, their advertising company was going to have a meeting with Lurex, one of the biggest manufacturer of condoms, personal lubricant, and sex aides in the country. To seal the contract, which would bring massive money to the company, Lucas and Cameron must came up with a marketing plan. Together. Within 65 hours ... ------------ This 50k free(!) book hits my sappy side just right (I was grinning and having happy sappy teary eyed on the epilogue chapter because it was soo wonderful). Which is a treat after a let-down after one published novella. I wholeheartedly enjoyed the world of creative marketing plan. I think both Lucas and Cameron have a GREAT chemistry together -- and we find out what Cameron's problem really is. That he is actually gay, and he is jealous of Lucas, who has been out and so sure of his sexuality. I find Cameron to be endearing, there's another layer of him beneath the confidence -- and it is in the form of wearing gay socks (yes, you heard me, GAY socks) underneath his attire, which is so frickin' cute. Lucas has a foot fetish, which is nicely done, and matches perfectly with Cameron's crazy socks. One of my favorite chapters in this book, is actually when Lucas and Cameron finally make use of the Lurex products -- come on, with a set-up like that, you would EXPECT them to do that, right? Yes, it means a number of sex scenes with one chapter, but it feels SO DIFFERENT, because it's written delightfully. For example, one of the products that they try is a "glow-in-the-dark" condom, and when they put in on, and turn off the light, their "illuminated cocks protruding between them, and look like lightsabres". OMG!! I was chuckling like crazy when I read that part. I would never see green lightsabres in the same way again *giggling* The epilogue makes an emotional sap out of me. I know that I can get teary eyed easily over a scene that just done right. The epilogue doesn't even have to deal with "I love you's" or proposal ... it's simply that (view spoiler)[an ad that Lucas and Cameron work on wins Cannes Lion for the best ad in the world -- and it warms my heart because it is such an achievement for these two men. Plus the explanation about the ad, which wins the award, is lovely. I want to see that ad myself! (hide spoiler)] . AAAAND, the Outtakes chapter, gives one of the most heartwarming scene over father and son. Truly, truly wonderful. So, even with a couple of my personal pet peeves present: (1) solo jerk-off in the shower and (2) "baby" as terms of endearment, I find the story to be light, charming, and very entertaining. I can forget about the solo jerk-off since it's quick and the circumstance feels right for Lucas to do it. And the "baby" words are not overwhelming. The only reason why I don't give it five stars is that I find the word "fuck" to be overdone -- there are 317 words of fuck/fucking combination in the whole story -- which sort of made me a bit uneasy. Not a huge fan of swearing *shrugs*. Also the cover is hideous (sorry!) and there are times, Lucas thinks his action is "like a girl"; that part I don't like, because it makes being a girl is wrong. But that's it ^^ Note: This story is described as a re-written fanfic. Since I don't really read fanfic, I wonder if someone else can tell me, which fanfic this one starts off as ^^ Edited to Add Ah, got it from reading one of the comments. It came from Edward and Jasper fic. Well, wonderful rewrite then ^^

    I like N.R. Walker. Her stuff is just so easy to read...and everyone loved this one! This, however, for me, was not my favorite. And trust me, it's all my fault. See, I've worked in the advertising industry...so I had a really hard time overlooking the errors in how things are done with new clients and pitches. "Try and suspend reality," I'd tell myself. "Urgh, but I caaaan't," I'd say back to myself. See, I'm also a scotch drinker. And when Lucas & Cam are at the club, he says he's kinda buzzed I like N.R. Walker.

I'm sorry, even the most serious drinker would be flat on their ass passed out after that. "Try and suspend reality," I'd tell myself. "Urgh, but I caaaan't," I'd say back to myself. Ok, Lucas and Cam were cute. I like Lucas' invisible hat tip...I might steal that...even though it's supposed to be for the ladies. And the socks, yeah...those were pretty adorbs. All, in all...it was a'ight. Like.

    No one needs me to tell them NR Walker is fabulous. It's one of those facts that needs not be stated... It just is. This. FTW! I don't think any book has made me smile this much. Lucas and Cameron had such lovable personalities and soooo much heart. I was cheesing through the whole last 50%. And the light saber thing... Totally hav done that haha. It was perf.

Well I am glad it surprised me and ended being a very HOT one! I dived in right after a very predictable book, and what I loved about this one would be how in sync were Lucas and Cameron. This is an office romance. I loved watching them brainstorming to find the best way in advertising not one, but two products (condoms and ... socks). I really was glued to the pages. I loved the writing, the banter between the characters and even if the angst was at minimum, I really loved the ending. I just can't believe how much I loved it!!

    x~x~ Have no idea why I'm so stuck on Lucas and Cam...but there you go. Another re-read comes and goes, sighs. x~x~ LUCAS and CAMERON - what a pairing!! Working together under orders, but much against their better judgment, to obtain the huge LUREX account for the sake of the firm, founded by Cameron's father, and who woulda thought that those 65 hours would lead to, well, such a wonderful book. Some very funny moments, some really tender ones, hot and steamy ones - well it wouldn't be an N.R. x~x~ Have no idea why I'm so stuck on Lucas and Cam...but there you go.

Walker story if there weren't, and all done in the 'best possible taste' as Kenny Everett would have said! A brilliant tale, and the other freebie available on the author's website is just as good - '65 Hours Christmas'. Let's just say I had a huge grin on my face all through reading , and couldn't wait to download it onto my Kindle.

    Adored it! I am really starting to wonder why I haven't read more of this authors books. They are amazing! Lucas and Cameron were just awesome! They were super sweet and adorable. I wanted to hug the two of them... and smack them a couple of times. But mostly I just wanted them to get together. It felt a lot longer than it was (in a good way) and it was totally worth it because those boys were hot together.

Something else I've loved about the books I've read from this author is the accepting families. Cameron's parents were just so wonderful and his mother was just so funny. And that was amazing because she wasn't even a big character in the book. Cameron's dad was a bigger character, but there was just something about his mom. These books might not be for everyone, I guess. But this has become one of my favorites. I just loved the writing and the characters and Lucas and Cameron just happen to be a favorite couple of mine. They are that sweet and sexy and just, lovable. I think that's the big thing with these two, they're just lovavle. Would I recommend this book to people? Hell yes! For a hot, sexy, funny read you need to try this author. She is amazing at what she does and I really want more!

    ***DNF 13%*** Ok, I'll explain myself. It's not the first time I've tried with this author. But this is the first time I make if official in GR. I couldn't worry less for the MCs or their problems. The style of writing is just not for me, it bores me to death. That's why I didn't last long here and I gave up so soon. ***DNF 13%*** Ok, I'll explain myself. It's not the first time I've tried with this author.

    loved it! sweet, hot and - hear this: no instalove! the mcs (they're adorable, btw) fall in love slowly and realistically. this is what sold this book for me. i really liked the setting and the idea, and the writing is perfect. breezy, funny and oh so sexy, but with a lot of sweet moments. and it's free! very very very recommended --- EDIT Nevermind the shitty review I wrote a year ago. I was still very bad at this. The point is: am I the only one who noticed THE TYPO ON THE COVER? Really? REALLY? God.

And I mean.. this is FREE everywhere! Who does not like that? ;) I totally recommend this if you are in the mood for some light but still hot MM action!

    LM 1st Anniversary BR! I freaking adore this book! Seriously, it's one of my all time favorites. I've read it several times now and every time I simply adore it. Cam and Lucas are a fantastic couple. They make me smile, they make me go 'aww', and they manage to make me fall in love with them every single time. I leaned down and kissed his cheek. "It's okay, Cameron. You'll be okay." He nodded and squeezed my hand. Without opening his eyes, he whispered, "Stay?" Figuring he probably shouldn't be a LM 1st Anniversary BR!

He nodded and squeezed my hand. Without opening his eyes, he whispered, "Stay?" Figuring he probably shouldn't be alone right now, I toed my shoes off and laid down beside him. And for the first time in my entire life, I fell asleep with a man, not exhausted from sex, not in a drunken haze. But holding his hand. N.R. Walker has written one of the best freebies ever. If you want to try something of hers, this would be an awesome start. Highly recommended! Go forth and read it!

    4.5 rounded up to 5 because the epilogue made me sob with happy tears That was simply a delight to read! Lucas is the enigmatic showhorse to Cameron's adorable stick in the mud. It worked perfectly. The story is a light, fluffy, sweet read and I couldn't get enough of it. Their relationship progression felt realistic and honest. I loved every character in this story; no one was too over the top or evil. If you're looking for a feel-good, angst free read pick this one up now. You won't be sorry.

    It was cute. It was nice. They were a bit immature towards the end. It was nothing mind-blowing so I cannot give it more than 3 stars. Nice characters. Well developed and original plot. Great secondary characters. It was free which was an added bonus. A cute, sweet read. It was cute. It was nice. They were a bit immature towards the end.

    This is a super-fun, super-sweet (and super-hawwt!) story about two guys with sixty-five hours to make the deadline on an advertising project. One is out and proud, and one is straight. Or, I should say, one is out and proud and he thinks the other one is straight. He's got issues with his gaydar, but everything else is in perfect working order. Check this out, because it's fun, it's free, and it will make you smile.

    Epic BR with Leafmarkians. "Sweet baby Jesus, he had perfect toes." I am not a fan of feet. They are all sorts of yucky so of course I found myself reading a book that has a guy with a foot fetish. But this wasn't yucky and it actually contained lots of my most favourite thing. That amazing foot covering invention. This was adorable and sweet and it was so much fun. It was also HAWT!!! "You're gonna kill me," he said, his voice thick with desire.

The way Lucas spoke his mind all the time and how he would always try to bait Cameron, I adored him. Both cocky and headstrong, there was bound to be some amazing fireworks, in and out of the bedroom. These men were just too sexy for words. And the socks… too cute!
