Security expert Rhone Quinn can't believe the wiry kid who grabs his cell phone almost gets away with it. Logic says turn the teen over to the cops, but Rhone is a man who trusts his instincts, and his gut tells him to offer the young man a job and a chance to begin a new life. Little does Rhone know that when he makes this choice it will forever change his life. Over the years that follow, a mentor relationship turns into a unique, abiding friendship. Unbeknownst to Rhone, as time passes by, Adam is also falling deeply in love. With Rhone. Who isn't gay. And who doesn't know that Adam is. Then, one day, Rhone discovers the truth. Will Rhone's new awareness of Adam's feelings bind the men together even more intimately, or tear these best friends apart? Saying I Do: Adam and Rhone from Finding Home are getting hitched. A week of hot lovin' before the nuptials sounds perfect. If they can stay out of trouble, they might make it to the chapel on time to say “I do.” -- Content Note: This is an erotic romance novel and contains explicit descriptions of male/male loving.

"Finding Home" was really short (136 pgs?) Basically, each short chapter was a year-in-the-life of mostly Adam crushing on Rhone (1999 - Adam meets Rhone, 2000 - Adam moves in with Rhone, 2001 - Adam really has a crush on Rhone, etc). They didn't get together until the last chapter and then it was over. OH-Kay. What happened to the tension buildup? Then "Saying I Do" (220 pgs?) is all about their wedding preparations in Vermont. But since they were already together, I really didn't care. Also didn't care about the side plot where they helped Annie the rich chick get back together with her childhood friend. IMO, you can skip this one. Grey's Awakening (by same author) was way better.

Finding Home by Cameron Dane

Rhone stops a young Adam while he is pickpocketing him. Adam is seventeen years old and an homeless; he thinks no one could be interested in him and so when Rhone, instead to bring him to the police, offers him a job, he is at first wary and then openly admiring of this man. While the years pass, Adam also falls in love with the man: Adam in fact his a gay teen thrown out of home by an homophobic father and in Rhone, and his brother Canin, he sees the family he has never had.

But Rhone is straight and he has also open relationship he has no problem to show to Adam, since they live together. Adam can only dream of this man, but when the dreams become also a pain, Adam has to take a decision: far from the eye far from the heart, and so he, ten years later their first encounter, tries to build a life apart from Rhone. But Rhone is not willing to let go a man he has long ago started to consider family himself.

The sex between Adam and Rhone is pretty erotic, the right realization of Adam's teen fantasies, and like all the teen fantasies it's also a bit exaggerated and very "loud", almost like one of that porn flick the young use to read when their bodies are all demands and less patience.

The book is not very long, 100 pages, and since the main part is spent telling us of Adam's growth, the romantic side of the story takes on only few pages... this is maybe the only disappointment I have, I'd like to read more about Adam and Rhone as a couple, after having read a lot about them as friend. I would add without regretting it at least another 50 pages or so.

Saying I Do (Quinn Security 3) by Cameron Dane

Usually Seasonal romances are light, especially the one turning around Christmas, even more when there is a marriage in them, it's like putting together the most romantic situations, a sugary overdose is assured, but if the author mixes well the ingredients, the result could a master chef marriage cake. And to have some cherries on top of the cake, this is also a "family" get together story, a typical expedient of publishers under Christmas, asking authors to write a story in the middle of the series, where previous characters make cameo appearances. What surprised me is that, in the end, I think the sequel of Rhone and Adam's story is probably even better than the previous one.

Truth be told, at the beginning of the story I was a little worried: it had started in a very romantic way, with Adam proposing Rhone and Rhone gladly accepting. But when they arrive on the posh hotel in Vermont where they are getting married on New Year's Eve, they soon stumble upon two mysteries: another soon to be married couple who seem to have other reason other than love to tight the knot, and a young man who is apparently the victim of a case of domestic violence... not exactly two romantic situations, and in someway they clashed with the feeling of the story. But I was worrying for nothing, and indeed the two stories give a reason more to this romance, other than letting the reader witness the happy conclusion of Rhone and Adam's love story; that is probably the most common fault of this type of stories, they have no reason to be if not to put a nice pink bow on an already told relationship.

The story serves also to give to the reader some proofs more that Rhone is really in love with Adam: Rhone still likes and dreams women, but he has now started to appreciated also the male beauty, and in particular Adam's beauty. Rhone is in love with Adam not since he is a man but since he is Adam, and it's a stronger type of love, one that probably will not lessen with age and time. Rhone and Adam are now lovers, but they were and still are also friends, the relationship between them is of mutuality and dependence, a very balanced one. There is not top or bottom, no leader or follower, all right, on a physical way, maybe Rhone is bigger than Adam, but for all the rest, they both have different strengths that put them on a same level.

Finally, the story is also very sexy, Rhone and Adam are in love and enjoy it a lot, and they are often all over each other, even more now that their marriage day is coming. The sex is good, plenty and naughty enough to be very enjoyable, but not too much to be only a resistance marathon.
