About the Author
Jenna Byrnes could use more cabinet space and more hours in a day. She’d fill the kitchen with gadgets her husband purchases off TV and let him cook for her to his heart’s content. She’d breeze through the days adding hours of sleep, and more time for writing the hot, erotic romance she loves to read.

Jenna thinks everyone deserves a happy ending, and loves to provide as many of those as possible to her gay, lesbian and hetero characters. Her favorite quote, from a pro-gay billboard, is “Be careful who you hate. It may be someone you love.”

Take one smart, sexy lawyer with tattoos covering his body. Add a macho, handsome Texan with a liquid-gold accent and enough hang-ups to drive a lawyer to commit a crime.

When Alex West told his parents he was gay they said, “Okay. What do you want for supper?” He grew into a happy, well-adjusted man and a sharp-as-a-tack lawyer. He has it all—except someone to call his own. Meeting Kyle Harbor for the first time, lots of thoughts ran through his mind. Most of them dirty. Finally, someone sexy and available, and what a catch.

Kyle Harbor grew up with a homophobic father who spent years convincing him what ‘real men’ did and didn’t do. They definitely didn’t fool around with one another, and Kyle got a summer at Bible Camp to convince him. Married for nearly twenty years, he finally decided his beautiful wife deserved better and divorced her. Now he’s looking for love in all the wrong places when he stumbles upon Alex and sparks fly. Can he battle his demons from the past, or is their relationship doomed before it even gets a chance?

 Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book.

Kyle hires Alex to sort out a legal issue for his construction company.Kyle's reaction to Alex is powerful but still he hides. Alex wants more than just a wham-bam-thank-you-man, which is what Kyle offers. Kyle is not the commitment type, not yet anyway. can he battle his demons and keep Alex?

This is book two in the Marked Men series but you don't need to have read book one, Acceptable Behaviour, before you read this one. Travis and Sam do play a part here, so Brownies points for that!

I really enjoyed book one but this one, not so much and I'm struggling to pinpoint why that might be. 

Both men have their say and I think maybe, MAYBE, Kyle himself is the problem. I didn't connect with him as much as I did Alex, and Travis and Sam.

There is some reference to conversion therapy, drug abuse, child abuse and gang rape. None of these are described in any detail, and the book does show, on Goodreads at least, a warning for these points. Just needs mentioning, is all.

I loved that Travis and Sam play a part, and that Mel, Sam's twin is moving on with her life in a positive way.

It was good, yes, but not as good as Acceptable Behaviour. 

3.5 stars

ps, apologies if you feel I have spelt behaviour wrong, I am UK based and so use English spelling of words. It killed me to spell it the American way!!

**same worded review will appear elsewhere**
