Gabe and Josh Roman-Wyatt have been living life in the fast lane. Demanding jobs, precocious twin toddlers, an ever-growing circle of friends, and a menagerie of pets means their home is filled with love and laughter but very few quiet moments for the happy couple. Gabe’s solution is to plan a surprise vacation at a perfect hideaway where the two of them can slow things down and reconnect.

Tarlington House, a historic home located on Edisto Island in South Carolina, hosts an annual murder-mystery event which will allow Josh to use the skills he learned from his all-time favorite television detective to solve the case. The serene setting is perfect for fun days in the sun, passionate lovemaking under the stars, and a healthy wager between husbands to see who can plan the best date. But when the other guests arrive, the guys find themselves surrounded by liars and cheaters who will say or do anything to win, reminding them there’s no place like Blissville.

When a guest is killed during a vicious storm that knocks out the power and phone lines, Josh and Gabe’s murder mystery role-playing becomes a real-life whodunnit. Serve and protect will take on a deeper meaning for Gabe when he’s torn between upholding the law and protecting his husband from a ruthless killer.

Ride or Dye includes sexy sunrises, snarky banter, and swoon-worthy romance. It is the sixth and final book in the Curl Up and Dye Mysteries, which must be read in order.

Leave it to Gabe and Josh to wind up in the middle of a real murder mystery even on vacation!

I cannot think of a higher compliment to a book than this: I truly only meant to read the first chapter, but ended up going until it was finished and enjoyed every minute of it. This series has grown so much for me with characters I really care about and a family I just want to see be happy.

Told in dual POV readers get a chance to spend more time with Josh and Gabe as they leave for a sexy and relaxing week away, with a bit of mystery solving fun, while the babies are watched over by their doting grandparents and their menagerie of pets back at home.

But Gabe’s careful plans keep getting screwed up…from the rental car, to his “surprise” date, to wanting Josh to be able to participate in a fun murder mystery game…and instead it turns out they wind up smack dab in the middle of a real murder and Gabe is determined to do whatever it takes to make sure Josh is protected.

Full of humor, hot sex, snark, and all the love Josh and Gabe feel for each other Ride or Dye was a blast. Is it greedy to want more Josh and Gabe?

Galley copy of Ride or Dye provided by the author in exchange of an honest review.


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.
