Genre: MM, contemporary romance
What do you do when the one you least expect to matter…

Ends up mattering the most?

Derek Pearson likes to think he’s an easygoing guy. Uncomplicated, upfront, and unapologetic with what he wants. His what you see is what you get attitude is on prominent display for anyone who cares to look, and his foul mouth is right there to back it up should you miss the point.

However, what you see isn’t always what you get, and only a select few have ever glimpsed the real man under the brash exterior.

Among them? Professor Jordan Devaney. Complicated, high-maintenance, and vibrant, he’s Derek’s opposite in every way. From the moment they saw each other, a love-hate relationship began.

But what happens when one person wants more?

Devil's Kiss by Ella Frank
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

4.5 **unlikely pair** STARS

“One of these days, we will get this right.”

That was a fun read. I have to say I was a bit worried after finishing Finley if Derek and Jordan could work for me as a couple, but I really enjoyed their relationship and the whole unlikely pair thing they had going on.

Devil’s Kiss is a M/M romance, with two openly gay characters. It spans over a time period of eleven years, starting parallel to Finley, when Derek and Jordan met at college. Jordan being the eccentric and genius young Professor and Derek the rebellious and troubled student with a bad home life. Their love story is not straightforward, there is a huge amount of time jumps in this book, showing how their hate/love friendship eventually turns into an actual relationship. It's a slow build to say the least.

But despite the ups and downs, and lack of communication over the years, there is always a strong bond and sense of trust between them. Especially Derek relies on Jordan when things get rough and those are some of my favourite parts to read.

The book can be read as a standalone, but giving the first book in the series a try is not a bad idea. The writing has a nice flow, the characters are entertaining, maybe the structure and time jumps get a bit much after a while, but overall I really enjoyed the story.

Title: Finley
Author: Ella Frank
Series: Sunset Cove #1
Genre: MM, contemporary romance
***A spin-off from the Temptation Series*** It's time to come home, Finn.

It’s been seven years since Daniel Finley left his hometown in Florida for the hustle and bustle of Chicago’s city life.
Since then, he’s worked hard for his position at the prestigious law firm Leighton & Associates, even when it’s caused distance and isolation from his family and friends. But that’s all about to change.

On his thirtieth birthday, he receives the one thing he never dared hope for. Something that was promised to him years earlier—a note. One simple sentence from the man he’s never been able to forget.

Six words will forever change the course of their lives.

Brantley Hayes has it all. Or so he thinks. When he first made the decision to take a job down in Florida, his family thought he was crazy. But, after years of living in the quiet beach town, he finally feels a sense of community. He’s surrounded himself with friends who are like family, has a job he loves, and owns a spectacular beachfront property that is his sanctuary.

Yet he still feels unfulfilled, as if a piece of the puzzle is missing, and he knows exactly which piece it is. On an impulse, he follows through with a promise he made years earlier. A promise to call home the one he sent away.

Nothing is as simple as it seems.

After years of separation, the former lovers are reunited, but Brantley wasn’t expecting to encounter the high walls now guarding Daniel’s heart. Daniel may not be the same person he was when he left, but he knows that the first step to healing is the note in his hand.
