The Ex…Marks the Spot

As a lesbian I am not someone who worries about what a man has to offer me, but offer up Eddie Roark for me and I won’t turn him down. He’s a man of passion not just for the women in his life, but for his career.

The book is set in Texas and the realism that comes from Margaret Ferguson’s work makes me home sick. This page turner (or should I say this screen swiper) keeps you engaged and keeps you up at night, but in the good way of not being able to put it down.

Summary:
Eddie Roark has his hands full… An ex-girlfriend, an ex-fiancé, and two ex-military armed to the teeth and determined to get some payback.
Once again Eddie finds himself stuck on a mountain. Only his mountain is a restaurant and dozens of lives are at stake, including someone he cares about. Can he stave off the police and save the woman he loves, or will he be forced to sacrifice her life to save everyone else?

Following my heart

My whole life packed up.

After 27.42 years of living in Texas, I moved out of the state. I moved to Kansas City, Missouri. I moved for my new job as a Relationship Advocate. What I really did was move for a girl.

Now I know I shouldn’t move for a girl, that I should have moved for the job and that it’s better to have the stability of the job over the love of a girl. I told myself that I moved for the job. Part of me did. I knew the job was a new experience; it’s a job that is nowhere else in the country. I mean Relationships Advocate; where else can you find a job title like that. My responsibility is to advocate for healthy relationships for youth in a local Kansas City, Missouri, homeless shelter. I left my current job for a better job; it was a win for me.

But damn it! I moved for her. I could not handle being 742 miles away from her anymore. I wanted to be 10 inches away from her. Now this move wasn’t a spur of the moment decision. We had talked about it for a while, and I had planned to wait until January 2020 to move to Kansas City. That way I could spend the holidays with my family. Unfortunately, fate had a different idea. With my grandfather’s death in November, my parents ended up staying in New Jersey and are not planning on coming back to Texas for a few more weeks. It was then that I decided to move out of Texas earlier than expected and start living my life in Missouri.

Today, I start the journey to the rest of my life. Let’s see what happens.

I have to admit I was a virgin when it came to gay male romance, but Sionnach popped my cherry. Many people say they regret their first time, but I do not regret reading this gay male romance novel at all!

This historical fiction is set in East Texas — to start off I’m just trying to figure out how Sionnach is getting away with gay men in East Texas. Sionnach does a great job at throwing these two men together in all sorts of positions (pun intended) that bring them closer together.

For any of my LGBTQIA+ family members out there needing a good steamy read, I urge you to stop here and read this book…you will enjoy it!

It is funny that it took my roommate (aka my mom) to give this book to me for me to read my first gay male romance…I have a weird and fantastic relationship with her.
