After finishing my lit degree, I completely stopped reading.  I had lost the ability to read for pleasure.  But in early 2013 I discovered reading could be social.  And in the autumn of 2013 I discovered MM romances and that reading could be downright HOT.  I haven't stopped reading since!


I live on Goodreads but I promise to figure out Booklikes eventually.

Damaged Package - S.A. McAuley 3.75 bike delivery guys have hot asses stars



I really like SA McAuley's stories. Her writing is diverse and you never know what you are going to get. I enjoy the slightly paranormal elements she throws into some of her stories such as [b:Someday It Will Be|17402464|Someday It Will Be|S.A. McAuley|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1368979686s/17402464.jpg|24237341] (which made me cry) and the very very short, very very moving [b:This is What a Cold Lake Looks Like|16174798|This is What a Cold Lake Looks Like|S.A. McAuley|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1354035322s/16174798.jpg|22024235]. I loved the fluffy sweet [b:Tread Marks & Trademarks|19096770|Tread Marks & Trademarks|S.A. McAuley|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1385982553s/19096770.jpg|27125912]. And now this book, a romance with a bit of plot.

I absolutely loved the first 80% or so about this book. There was a lot of character development, a lot of relationship development. And a hint of something else going on. I liked the way the age difference was handled. Trevor's wanderlust fascinated me. And the way McAuley combined insta-love with a slow burn really worked.

But, somewhere around the 80% mark, the story it shifted from a relationship driven story to a plot driven story and I got lost in the transition. I was so concerned about Trevor and Deacon's relationship at that point that I didn't really care about the mystery/investigation thing also going on. I just couldn't make the shift. Which was probably my problem and not the story's.

So my question remains: Where the hell is book 2 of Trademarks and Tread Marks, Ms. McCauley? Maybe it will come out after Border Wars books 4?
