A Work in The Guy Series
Two proposals. One giant dog. Reunited lovers.
Welcome to Glamour, Arizona, where the holidays are never dull. Glamour may be a small town, but the surprises keep coming.
Everybody’s looking forward to Thanksgiving. Only Mac Sharma is a reluctant guest. Even as Anthony and Dean make him feel welcome at the Carrino table, Mac feels awkward among the close-knit group of friends. Life gets even more complicated when Conor Harvey shows up in town.
Mac has been in love with Conor since his university days. Too bad Conor broke his heart—right before he fled to his hometown in Ireland without explanation. Conor’s still a wild artist and as sexy as Mac remembers. But they’re no longer kids. This Thanksgiving, Mac must decide if he can give Conor a second chance.
This book does not work as a standalone. You have to read The Guy series first to understand what’s going on.
I really enjoyed revisiting these couples.
Anthony, Dean and their growing family are happier than ever. Anthony plans this big Thanksgiving meal where everyone is invited. Naturally, things don’t go as planned. Poor Dean…
Aaron and Jesse are in a great place too. We see them planning a surprise for each other. What they don’t know is that they ‘re planning the same surprise!
Henry and Locke…Sigh. This is my favorite couple in the series. I love Locke so hard. Still gruff but kind hearted and protective of those he loves. And I’m happy that we go to see his possessive-jealous and sexy side too. The new addition to their family couldn’t be more perfect.
What I didn’t enjoy that much is the new couple, Mac and Connor. Mac (Jesse’s agent) was Connor’s boyfriend back in college and now, after all these years they reunite. The reason they broke up in the first place seemed like a big misunderstanding to me. Despite the obvious attraction, things felt rushed between them and I didn’t have the chance to connect with them.
Overall, this is a light, sexy and funny addition for the lovers of the series. And don’t worry, the HEAs remain intact.
