RELEASE DATE: September 5, 2017
Psychic Emory Jackson and former black ops specialist Jonathon Silver are men from two completely different worlds with one thing in common: heartbreak. Emory still mourns the loss of his husband five years prior, and Jon is reeling with grief from the recent death of his twin brother.
Sparks fly when mutual friends introduce them, but it’s so much more than basic attraction. There’s an undeniable awareness and a sense of belonging that neither man can deny. Despite Emory’s premonition of a future with Jon, he has vowed never to love again. Jon is convinced that his tainted soul is the reason he will never have someone to call his own. What if they’re both wrong?
Maybe these broken men with their jagged edges could somehow align perfectly to form something whole and beautiful. But will that realization come too late for them?
Someone to Call My Own is the second book in the Road to Blissville series. These books can be read as standalone or as part of the series. The author first introduced these characters in the Curl Up and Dye Mysteries, but it isn’t necessary to read that series first. This book contains sexually explicit material and is intended for adults 18 and older.
As the blurb says, “Someone to Call My Own is the second book in the Road to Blissville series. These books can be read as standalone or as part of the series. The author first introduced these characters in the Curl Up and Dye Mysteries, but it isn’t necessary to read that series first.” However, I strongly recommend you read the Curl Up and Dye series first. Since the first 30% of this book overlaps with those stories and gives you Emory and Jonathan’s perspective of those events, it will give you a better understanding of the big picture if you have already read the previous series. Just my opinion though.
I loved this story. It was so emotional but in such a good way. Emory’s history was so heartbreaking and as he moved on it was difficult to see his emotional toil. Reading about his struggles was sad to the point of tears. But at the same time it was so wonderful seeing him heal and move on. There were times I cried for his broken heart and other times I cried for his happiness.
And Jonathan was such an enigma. I do wish we would have learned more about his past but I think we got more than enough to understand that he was broken in his own ways just as Emory was. Seeing his self destructive behavior was hard and my heart hurt for him each time Emory has a setback.
Together these men needed some serious love in their lives and together they were able to get on the road to healing. They were great together and I really felt their connection, their love, and their chemistry. It felt it was very well done.
This was another great addition to the Blissville world and it set things up nicely for more books. I have no idea whose story will be next but I am so eager for any of them. I want to know about all the new secondary characters and need to see them get their happy endings!
