When easygoing Texas artist Dakin McBride makes his way to Ottawa, Canada, for a showing, he meets Jeff Tamrin, the fastidious manager of the Sussex Gallery. Despite coming from different worlds and being opposites in almost every way, the attraction is immediate, and soon Dakin and Jeff negotiate their own brand of diplomatic relations, forgetting all about art or seeing the sights the city has to offer. They get wrapped up in the moment, each of them intrigued by what he feels for the other.

The more they get to know each other, the more they like what they see. Dakin has a life to go back to in Texas, though, and Jeff has his own in Canada. Is there any way for their budding romance to survive the thousands of miles separating them? The relationship seems doomed, but at the same time, it feels too right to give up without a fight.

First Edition published by Torquere Press, 2005.

In this book Sean Michaels has made it where his characters have the delima of living in two different countries but being head over heals in love with each other. It is a short story and a decent read.

Dakin and Jeff meet when Dakin comes to Ottawa to show some of his work. Jeff is the manager of the gallery that is showing Dakin’s work and Jeff is smitten from the first hello.

After talking about the exhibit and showing Dakin where he will be set up to show his work, the two men got to talking and enjoyed each other’s company. Both decided to keep the other company over supper where each of them upped their flirting back and forth and decided to spend the night together.

From that moment on they were inseparable the remainder of the time Dakin was in town. Jeff liked Dakin so much that he introduced him to his family which also loved him too.

When time to go back to Texas, Dakin asked Jeff to join him which Jeff readily agreed too. Jeff took three weeks vacation and joined Dakin a week after he went back to Texas.

In that time the two men continued to get closer and Hefd decided he wanted to stay. Dakin would not have it any other way. The problem was if he could get citizenship or not. Only time would tell.

This was a quick read that had a lot of steamy sex scenes in it. I enjoyed his book but it was not my favorite by Sean Michaels. I did not feel that there was a lot drama in this book, which is not a bad thing but at the same time there was more sex scenes then there was storyline. Which I did not personally like. I like to have equal parts. But regardless it was a decent read.

Galley copy of From The Get Go provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time.

I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books.

Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
