Hey *waves* from down under

I’m Ang from PNR Book Lover Reviews, and I was asked if I would like to participate in a LGBT week event over here at UTC Book Blog, of course I said yes!

I mean its LGBT one of my favourite genres I read. Now I was to select a fav book from the genre, that alone was like asking me who my favourite child is… So many good books to pick. I ended up choosing Family Man by Heidi Cullinan and Marie Sexton.

Where do I even begin with this story, it brings you all the feels. The guys Vinnie and Trey are everything you would want from two strong willed men, they will make you smile till your face hurts, you will laugh along with them, you will get the leaky eyes from crying with them, you may find yourself getting frustrated with them but it is one of the best love stories you will read. You will cheer for them till the last page.

One of the aspects of this story that I love the most is family and how the hard times could be what any one of us are going through. It shows what a strong loving family can do for you when you are knee deep in shit. It can give you hope and help you learn to trust.

You know it’s a good book when you can’t put it down, or when you don’t glance at your kindle percentage to see how much you have left. Because I’ll be honest I do it all the time! With Family Man, you won’t be doing that.

I think what you might like about this too, is that the characters aren’t too young. Vinnie is a 3-time divorcee and Trey is slightly younger but he’s not that young annoying twink we can sometimes be like *face palm* really! Poor Trey got dealt a bad egg when it comes to his alcoholic Mum, trying to study and support himself and her, and his grandma. Who is legit amazing!

It felt so realistic that you don’t second guess anything. With a slow burn romance that builds into a beautiful foundation, and the sexual tension that we all love, Trey places a NO SEX rule. well until they fall in love, then all rules are gone. Which is PERFECT. The authors nailed it!

Heidi and Marie on their own write flawlessly,  but together they wrote a masterpiece, and over the last 7 or so years since I read it the first time I have caught myself re reading it more than once or twice a year.

In my opinion over the years there has been plenty of LGBT books written by older authors who made the genre what it is today, which I think these two ladies fall under. From newbies dipping their toes into this amazing genre, some are hits and some are misses, and to be honest I just think these gals just know what they are doing with this genre, and this story!

I don’t think you would not regret spending the money one clicking Family Man.

Did this help you?

Happy Reading Book Lovers

About Heidi Cullinan

Heidi Cullinan has always loved a good love story, provided it has a happy ending. She enjoys writing across many genres but loves above all to write happy, romantic endings for LGBT characters because there just aren't enough of those stories out there. When Heidi isn't writing, she enjoys cooking, reading, knitting, listening to music, and watching television with her husband and ten-year-old daughter. Heidi also volunteers frequently for her state's LGBT rights group, One Iowa, and is proud to be from the first midwestern state to legalize same-sex marriage.

About Marie Sexton

Marie Sexton lives in Colorado. She’s a fan of just about anything that involves muscular young men piling on top of each other. In particular, she loves the Denver Broncos and enjoys going to the games with her husband. Her imaginary friends often tag along. Marie has one daughter, two cats, and one dog, all of whom seem bent on destroying what remains of her sanity. She loves them anyway.
