Blurb:

Connor’s life is always an absolute disaster around Valentine’s Day. Since he was just a kid, he’s had the power to see people’s soulmates and bring them together with a well-placed blow, and Valentine’s is his busiest season. Love has always been nothing more than a job to him at best, and a curse at worst. So when the beautiful Simon takes a barstool and buys Connor a drink, he looks like just another lonely soul in need of saving.

But, in Connor’s life, things are rarely that simple, and in the search for Simon’s soulmate, lines begin to blur.

For a man who knows so much about falling in love, Connor never could’ve imagined a day when it might happen to him. As he experiences life like never before, Connor starts to realize that love might not be such a curse after all.

Until he has to hand Simon over to his soulmate, anyway.


I really liked the premise: Connor is gifted (or cursed depending on how you look at it) with the ability to see soulmates. It’s his responsibility to get the mates to meet, and if he doesn’t he suffers terribly for it.

When Connor meets Simon he sees that Simon has a soulmate, but not “who”, which is not really that unusual, unfortunately, It means that Connor has to spend more time with him so Connor can find his soulmate. Connor knows the longer it takes the more painful it will become for him, so it becomes a race to find Simon’s mate, but the really hard part is that the more time spent with Simon means Connor begins to fall for Simon himself.

This is a really short, but sweet, novelette with no sexy times. It felt complete, even is I was left wishing for a little more time with Simon and Connor.

I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I’m happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand.
I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I’m in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA!

My biggest no-no’s are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.

A sampling of my “Favorite M/M” stories:

Carry the Ocean The Half of Us Red Dirt Heart Adulting 101 Tied Up In Knots
Shelter the Sea Manties in a Twist David, Renewed Ethan who Loved Carter Perfect Imperfections
