“I won’t get hurt again.”

“He probably has women falling at his feet.”

Attorney Alexander Wilson lies to himself. He’s not in the closet. He’s happy alone. He could come out to his work colleagues any time. Until then it’s one nerd and his Corgi, his string of failed relationships, and his collection of Space Shuttle toys. So when he’s hired by a tattooed, musclebound mechanic, it’s just as well that Conflict of Interest prevents him getting involved.

“A guy like him wouldn’t spend time with a guy like me.”

Mechanic Titus Edwards walked away from a promising Army career. As a former EOD expert he’s faced tougher environments than Flushing, Queens, but never a tougher job: raising his eight year old niece. When her biological father crawls out of the woodwork, Titus needs an attorney if he’s to protect her. But he’s not expecting to find himself drawn to Alex. After all, Alex is a guy. And Titus isn’t gay.

“We’re wasting time on a fairytale.”

Both men are haunted by pasts they would rather forget. But if they are to forge a future together they’re going to need to overcome more than their individual hurts. Can they learn to trust themselves and each other before it’s too late?

Guardian is a steamy, standalone gay romance novel with a HEA and no cliffhangers.

Guardian is the sweet yet sexy and steamy romance between an attorney and the mechanic who hires him. I love GFY Romances and this book was an absolute treat for me..!! I loved Alexander and Titus.!! They both are two wonderfully written characters that they are really easy to fall in love with..!!

I loved that the author brought two extremely different characters and made them fall in love. Titus is very calm, centered, hulk like guy with a quiet demeanor and Alex is the easy, friendly, outgoing guy who is a bit of a nerd. What I loved is the they both are so different yet have a common trait that they both are protectors. The author has created two mature and level headed characters that their transition from friends to lovers were truly enjoyable and a lot realistic to read. I really liked that Titus was sure of himself and confident and comfortable enough to explore his attraction to Alex. It was really different and refreshing to read a story where the GFY element did not lead to angst.

The author has done a fantabulous job in exploring the chemistry between Alex and Titus. For a guy who is being intimate with another man for first time Titus sure does exceed expectations. The sex scenes are so hot that I had to fan myself quiet a few times…!!! Titus and Alex together is a very explosive combination and the resultant effect is just simply mind-blowing. The author has done a tremendous job in building their sexual chemistry to scorching hot levels. I loved that they both waited to get to know each other before taking their relationship to the next level..!!

The book also has an adorable eight year old, Phoebe, and a sweet Corgi, Val, who both are precious beyond words. I loved them both to bits and they will simply steal your heart..!!

This book was truly an entertaining read and I loved every bit of my time spent reading this beautiful love story. A totally angst free, sweet yet very steamy and sexy book which is a must read for all M/M romance lovers.!!
