For Wall McCormack, actions speak louder than words. He’s giving and protective, loyal to his friends, and devoted to his job. While confident and powerful enough to conquer any challenge, his greatest strength lies in his calm nature. Until an unexpected assignment sends his world into a loud and colorful chaos he never could have anticipated.
Rejection. It’s something Dylan Vaughn has known his entire life. But he’s a tough nut to crack and refuses to break. Armed with a sharp tongue and brutal honesty, he pushes through life and at anyone who attempts to take him on. Except for the quiet guardian who piques his interest and dares him to want…more.
When Dylan’s past comes back with a vengeance and jeopardizes their growing connection, Wall will stop at nothing to protect the younger man and remain by his side. But convincing Dylan that someone accepts the real man behind the cocky facade might prove to be Wall’s greatest challenge yet.
With his freedom on the line, Dylan must trust the strength of their bond and confront the forces threatening their future. Only then will he realize the dream of acceptance is real and finally have a place to call home.
The Men Of Halfway House series is one of my favorite m/m series and I am always excited when I read a book about these complicated and damaged men. A Chosen Man is the latest book in the series and one that I overall enjoyed a lot. Now I have to say that I think it dragged on just a little bit, but besides that I loved the chemistry between Grayson aka Wall and Dylan. Both of these men have things in their pasts that have hurt them greatly and those things have helped forged them into the men they are today.
Wall and Dylan, the FBI agent and the felon. On paper, these two should not work at all. Wall is quite and rough around the edges where Dylan is the opposite, the fun loving, unicorn tattoo having man who is also very insecure about his self-worth. The chemistry between these two is off the charts explosive but it is the way that they heal those broken parts in each other that made me love them even more. Add in the suspense and drama and you have a story that is one I really enjoyed. I have always believed that love can heal all wounds and the love between Wall and Dylan healed theirs.
Jamie Reese has written another beautiful romance that proves love is love and love is a powerful thing. Add A Chosen Man to your TBR list I think it will be one that is enjoyed by many.
Jaime Reese is the alter ego of an artist who loves the creative process of writing, just not about herself. Fiction is far more interesting. She has a weakness for broken, misunderstood heroes and feels everyone deserves a chance at love and life. An avid fan of a happy ending, she believes those endings acquired with a little difficulty are more cherished.
