~ Under the Covers
Billy is your stereotypical male, straight male that is. He dropped out of high school and is now working in the construction field, successfully might I add. Tests are not for him though, and he feels he can’t do better in life because he’s just not that smart. In the meantime, he’s made it his mission to take care of his parents financially, putting a lot of responsibilities on his shoulders. And if he’s not that lucky in love? Well, he’s not necessarily sweating it.
When his sister is getting married, and he’s just been dumped by his latest girlfriend, he is teamed up with a stylist to make him look more presentable during the wedding festivities. And it just turns out to be the gay guy from the coffee shop he frequents, whom he always thought was an attractive guy. In a very non-gay way.
This is a story of discovery for Billy. Him, the big and muscular construction guy may just be attracted to guys. It’s always amazing for me to read these stories and then not find a lot of turmoil in that characters mind. I would imagine this late in life it would be a struggle to come to terms with something like this. But not so much in Billy’s case. And it’s all thanks to the hot redhead, Shaz.
I loved Shaz’s character. He’s totally over the top, exactly what you would imagine that gay stylist that works on weddings, if you know what I mean. He is also very smart and caring, and I couldn’t help but fall for him almost as hard and fast as Billy. I liked their chemistry and the fact they both give as good as they take. They take care of each other. Both in and out of the bedroom.
I always come to Tara Lain for a sweet and a bit over the top LGBT read. And she delivers with this new series! KNIGHT OF OCEAN AVENUE was a sweet and adorable gay-for-you story! And definitely leaves me wanting more of this series.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
