Men of Smithfield: Seth and David – L.B. Gregg – 4 stars

October 12, 2012 Carina Press, NetGalley, Read in 2012 1

This was a very fast read but I enjoyed watching two men who seem to be complete opposites find each other and make it work.

Seth is still trying to come to terms with what his life has become.  He is now the sole guardian of his niece and both of them are still coming to terms with the loss of their sister/mother.  I was sad to hear about her battle with cancer but happy that her little girl did have the chance to know her and have some memories of her wonderfully caring mom.  Seth is also dealing with the end of his relationship with his lover which makes him a bit guarded when it comes to his heart.  He is surprised when at his weekly massage appointment he gets David rather than his normal therapist Lisa but even more surprised when he ends up uncontrollably aroused during the session.  He doesn’t like to talk about much of anything (a bit of a control freak) but David brings out this side of him that wants to get down and dirty any way he can.  There is a bit of drama with the father of his niece but overall she’s well-loved and cared for.

David..  sigh…  he seems to be flighty if you just look at the surface but…  this man works multiple jobs and is a children’s author who does all he can for his family and someone who’s relationship to him I’m going to keep secret.  I loved the way he brought out the inner good in Seth and really knocked down those walls.  He’s sweet, caring and the perfect balm to Seth’s tendency to over think/judge things.  I liked that he pushed back against Seth about a lot of items but mainly I liked that he really saw beneath the surface and cared for both of them.  I mean come on who wouldn’t want a hot man who has a heart of gold.  🙂

So if you want a quick, hot M/M read then this would be a good one to read.  You won’t get lost as these books can stand alone.  Thanks to NetGalley.com and Carina Press for the chance to read this in exchange for my honest review.
