A gay man and a straight man fall for each other. Each brings issues and baggage to the relationship aside from different sexual orientations. Mike wants affection, which Luke supplies in large quantities. Luke wants a friend who accepts him as he is, which Mike does completely.

Luke refuses to give his heart to anyone because he has been badly burned twice. Mike is afraid he’s being too needy and will drive Luke away. Mike won’t do “gay stuff,” but that doesn’t preclude cuddling, kissing and more. Luke is afraid he’ll lose Mike to a woman, while Mike is afraid he’ll lose Luke to someone willing to have gay sex.

Living in New Orleans gives each the chance to sample the other’s nightlife. Mike gives Luke a once-in-a-lifetime chance to compete for a prestigious art project. Luke gives Mike a puppy, something he’s craved all his life. They take their relationship on the road to Seattle, Prague and elsewhere, falling more and more for one another every day.

They’ve found respect, affection and a deep bromance. Can they find love?

This book left me riling for more. So much so that I went ahead and read the rest of the series. Going to be honest, if you start this book be prepared to get the other two in the series because if not then you will be disappointed at how the book ends. Because it does end extremely abruptly.

Mike is a straight man or so he believes for most of his 29 years. He has been married to a woman that he is currently about to divorce but still best friends with her and loves her. But the two are as different as night and day and want different things.

That is how Mike finds himself in New Orleans working a new consulting job. This is where Mike is about to realize that everything he thought he knew about himself is different then he believes. Mike meets one of the workers for the firm he is working for, Brett, and Brett lets him know that he has a brother that is in need of a roommate. Mike jumps at the opportunity and that is when he meets Luke.

Luke is gay and does not hide it from Mike. Mike is ok with it so long as Luke understands he is straight and nothing will ever happen between them. Both agree and a friendship is formed between them. The only problem is the closer as friends they get the more intimate things start to become between them. Mike is not sure if he can handle it.

All Mike knows is, he is straight and he likes how things are progressing with Luke. So why question it or should he?

This was a good book but like I said you definitely do not want to read this one unless you are planning to read the next one soon after because of the way it ends abruptly. I enjoyed this series. I think others will also.

Review Copy

Galley copy of Finding Friendship (Finding #1) provided by Mark Treble 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.
