    This book was really good I didn t know how I would feel about it because it is written in first person, and it is NO secret how I HATE first person But, it looked good, so I decided to bite the bullet I am glad I did.What surprised me about the book was how funny it was I truly wasn t expecting to laugh out loud several times Plus, I came to care about Mark His inner thoughts rang true to me for some reason He was very easy to relate to, and I would be proud to call him a friend Not to say he doesn t do some outrageous things throughout the course of the book But, I found myself cheering him on even though maybe he didn t make the bester wisest choices I think he did to his cheating lover what MANY of us would gladly do if we had the balls to do itno pun intended.Mild mannered Mark Meehan didn t know his day was about to go to hell in a handbasket when he came home from work When he finds his live in lover having sex with the creepy landlord he flips out Although, their relationship has been quite tepid lately, he never thought the jerk off would cheat on him To say that Mark is angry is an understatement When he attends weekly mass and spots his cheating lover in the aisle in front of him, he snaps and wallops his cheating lover upside the head with the bible, practically knocking the cheater out Who knew that violence in the church would cause you to be escorted out in the middle of services On his way home, he is pulled over for driving UNDER the speed limit by a cop who happens to be his older sisters childhood friend and his crush Tony Mark has deliberately avoided Tony for a while because of his feelings he has for him But, seeing Tony again makes Mark want to unload his problems and reconnect with him To say that Tony is a sexy hero is an understatement He is also the the glue that keeps Mark together The erratic Mark becomes, the calmer Tony is They were perfect together I loved this book Not only was it funny, but it had some VERY hot moments between Mark and Tony that had me turning on the ceiling fan I really enjoyed watching Tony and Mark finally come together at the right time in their lives They are the kind of characters that I would love for the author to continue their story I hated for it to end If you are offended by laugh out loud moments, hot sex and different ways to get revenge on your cheating ex, this book is not for you.

    Audible Rounded up to 4 stars And 12 points goooooes to Shannon Gunn Well, it was much better than I expected Sexy, witty and smart.It reminded me of series by C.Cardeno and Mary Calmes, but forgive me the fans of these authors I found L.B.Gregg much better entertaining What I really like here her sense of humour that reflects perfectly in funny dialogues.Shannon Gunn s voice makes a wet dream come true you just want MORE And I think he delivered a very good performance playing Tony, Mark, Jamie and all second characters with his voice I like the beginning of the series and look forward to reading MORE.Run on the next book

    3.5 stars I think I would have liked this better on my Kindle and rated it a solid 4 stars instead of 3.5 stars This was my first audiobook and I m not completely sold on it Most of my friends loved this narration I think the narrator did a great job except for the voice of Tony, which kiiiillllleeeeddd me He sounded like a constipated Tony Soprano, and I couldn t feel much for him as a character because I hated the voice so much This book had many things that I like It was funny, it was paced well, and it had a lot of action It confirmed that L.B Gregg is an author to watch for me However, I didn t like how the romance part of the book went down I didn t really get why either of them didn t make a move until now, and I certainly didn t feel the love from them I wanted development of their romantic relationship Also, Mark, who I thought was really funny and endearing, bordered on too stupid to live some of the time I honestly thought he was going to get his butt killed for most of the story Silly man.

    No Mr Nice Guy.Mild mannered Mark Meehan s good judgment flies out the window when he finds his lover banging another man Things go from bad to worse as Mark s crazy revenge scheme uncovers shocking secrets sending him straight into the arms of hunky lawman and old friend, Tony Gervase, a man of limited patience and secrets of his own.From Aspen Mountain Press.I liked Mark In fact no, I than liked Mark I just adored this character He was smart and sexy, but most appealing was his very human and real nature which is what made this book so charming Tony was a sex god of course with his whole tall, dark and chest hair going on, but it was wanting to see what Mark would do next that kept me up till way past my bedtime.The writing was crisp with some beautiful use of language, without it looking like the author had fallen into a thesaurus I liked this Sometimes it s nice if an author feels you re intelligent enough to cope with the big words heh The pace of the story was quite fast, not short, just quick with no down time This made for real edge of your seat reading I was just dying to know what happened next and it felt like no words were wasted The humor was also a nice suprise, although I did not spend the whole story laughing my ass of it was enough that my partner asked me what I was reading several times which eventually turned into, are you still reading that book And hot Holy shit, I do try and suppress my prurient side and not focus solely on this, it is a romantic story after all not Hot Cops which does look rather interesting so there is loads of lovely sweet stuff, but this was just so good or maybe I just have a thing for bathroom sex heh.I can honestly say I did not know quite what to expect going into reading this book, especially after reading the synopsis where I wondered if the crazy revenge theme was really going to be my cup of tea But it was a great read, seriously Memorable and one I cannot wait to see in paperback.http sharrow.wordpress.com

    Hard for me to like a story when i don t like any of the characters Jaimie you obviously weren t supposed to likeThe MC Forgot his name already was just not likable IMO He was stupid and handle everything poorly and just annoyed me to read aboutTony was ok until he admits why he pushed the forgettable main character away view spoiler After Tony s dad died he let the MC S boyfriend, Jaimie blow him in his car he felt guilty and instead of telling the MC is boyfriend is a whore he just pushes the MC away hide spoiler

    I think this would have been the perfect plot for a longer book, with space for feels and meaningful conversations between Mark and Tony, but as it stands, it was still enjoyable enough.

    Serious but humorousI can t remember having read many stories that feature bad break ups in all their glory This one does and it does it very well and in a way that is authentic It isn t angsty either but has a humorous tone although the issues dealt with are serious.Mark discovers his boyfriend is a louse The louse lies, cheats and steals Mark confronts him in a way that is public, but illegal, but also comical and so the story begins What follows is a journey through a bad break up to a new authentic relationship, a relationship with someone who has been waiting on the sidelines for Mark for some time Tony the town cop has loved Mark for ages but done nothing about it buffoon Mark has never known about Tony s love for him and although he really liked Tony he always felt Tony didn t want him so Mark ends up with the lying, cheating, thieving Jamie the louse Of course Jamie wasn t always a louse but as Mark discovers people are like onions with many layers and sometimes these layers conceal deeply hidden lousiness and a myriad of other creepy crawlies It also appears that Mark is the last to recognise that Jamie is a louse and that Tony has feelings for Mark Everyone else seems to know but no one cared to inform Mark Ignorance is only bliss to a certain extent Ah well you live and you learn.I liked this story because it has a cast of unlikely characters and it has a witty dialogue Mark is deeply trusting, very hurt, but totally clueless and unthinking when it comes to the break up He takes matters into his own hands and let s his emotions take charge and he gets into and out of all kinds of scapes and skirmishes Mark kind of unravels but Tony is there solid and steady with good advice and practical help Alas it is the kind of droning sensible help that Mark needs but at the same time embarrasses him because it shows Mark that his actions are not really wise actions Also everything is played out on the stage of small home town life where life s dramas become entertainment for everyone else cringe.So there is this big break up, anger, violence, and pain but in the midst of this is realisation, family support and new love and kindness all delivered in a snarky, comical tone It is a quirky story with some serious issues that are dealt with in a lively and sometimes humorous way As Mark weaves his unsteady way through the mess, confusion and loss he eventually manages to recognise the way home and find the way home Home is Tony.I am so pleased this is part of a series It was quite lively and an enjoyable despite the fact it dealt with a crooked boyfriend I liked the way Tony became a hero even though he appeared to be a bit droning and stiff At the very end true love wins and that is what it is all about I am now looking forward to meeting the other men of Smithfield I hope they will be just as entertaining.

    Book 1 Mark Tony 4 starsSERIES REVIEWI think if I d read this series years ago, or even just months ago, I wouldn t have enjoyed it as much as I did having read it just recently Don t get me wrongI love LB Gregg s stories and the books were, at varying degrees, really enjoyable But, what made them very special for me is that 4 months ago, I bought a house in a small, remote country location in northwest Connecticut And the closest restuarant, coffee shop, grocery storeall were in the neighboring town, Litchfield And it just so happened to be where the not so fictional town of Smithfield was based on.Familiarty and recognition make reading that much fun And just for fun, I went and snapped a picture of The Village, often mentioned throughout the series as the place to eat, drink, and be merry Each of these books focuses on a new couple in the town of Smithfield They can be read as standalones for plot, but it s fun seeing some of the characters make pop up appearaces in the other books As I mentioned, they were all fun, quick reads So, I do recommend tackling the whole series For me Favorite book of the series Mark Tony childhood friends to lovers, a crazy ex boyfriend, danger, a cop, a nurse, and some sexy attraction between the two Favorite couple of the series Max Finn I love the nerdy teacher and the sexy growly security specialist And their first scene together was hubba hubba.Sweetest couple of the series Seth David I didn t mind the age difference And I liked the kids in the mix Weirdest couple of the series Sam Aaron considering most of the book questioned if they were related, it was hard and strange finally picturing them together.Least convincing couple of the series Adam Holden I don t know that I understood their connection, to be honest Yet, I really enjoyed their quirkiness.Best mystery storyline Mark Tony tied with Max Finn.Best cameo Tony in Sam Aaron s book.Best Smithfield focuses storyline Adam Holden tied with Sam AaronReason to read this series LB Gregg writes unexpected contemporary romances She always throws a wrench of some sort into the storyline She also writes fun couples w sexy connections.

    There really isn t anything terribly innovative, twisty or different about this story Mark is a bit down on his luck and unlucky in love Tony is a rock, but a bit elusive I attribute my liking this to Tony s affinity to fill a pantry with stuff from Costco and Mark recognizing a dick pic as his ex s fat bastard In other words, the author seems to have a knack for just the right amount of relateable detail needed for a contemporary romance What she is doing definitely is working for me I only wish it were longer In looking at this author s catalog, most her work appears to be under 200 pages It makes me wonder what she might do with a further fleshed out story.
