Présentation de l'éditeur

A life of wealth and privilege doesn’t equal happiness—just ask Eric Courtland. Growing up with a cold, unfeeling father and unstable mother has taught him exactly what he doesn’t want out of life or love. The troubled young man prefers a solitary life and is content to keep it that way until a campus emergency saddles him with an unwanted roommate.

Popular, wholesome, straight Nick Thompson is far more temptation than Eric’s prepared for, but Nick’s warm, easygoing manner gradually cracks through Eric’s prickly protective shell.

After Eric suffers a traumatic attack, their friendship gives way to an intense passion. Eric’s no stranger to casual sex, but what he feels for Nick is something deeper, and more fragile.

Independent Eric doesn't know the first thing about being in a relationship, much less with a lover who can't even admit he's gay. But conservative Nick can't seem to find his way out of his own personal closet.

Rock, meet hard place.

(Publisher's note: This is a novella.)

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A story of friendship, self-discovery and compromise 29 novembre 2012
Par Shirley Quinones - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
3.75 stars

Eric is a loner. He keeps to himself and he likes it that way. A self-confessed slut, he prefers his encounters with his men to be impersonal and without expectations. Then his world is turned upside down when, after returning from Christmas break, he finds himself with a roommate. A very handsome, football-playing roommate. And from then on he knows he is a goner.

Nick is an attractive jock who lives in denial and fear. He seems like your typical college junior, with a former girlfriend as a best friend and a football scholarship. But he is much more than that. He is an adorable, young man who fears giving in to his desires to be with a man. He doesn't want to disappoint his parents and suffer the ridicule from his teammates. It isn't until he meets Erick that he starts thinking about giving into to his desires, but even after sharing a kiss, he fights it.

I liked that Nick and Eric's relationship started as a friendship. It added to the credibility of the story. From the outside it looked like any college friendship, but in reality these two were in constant fight with their emotions and desires, until that moment when Nick couldn't hold back any longer and gives in. What develops next is a journey of new found affection and lust with heartbreak lurking in the corner.

I love to connect with my characters and although I did get to know them, it wasn't enough for me to connect fully. I enjoyed the interactions between them. However, I wanted more more about the 'in between'. I wanted to see more of them as friends and then as lovers. I wanted the tender moments and the laughs and the getting to know each other. I wanted to know about their heartache in the time they were apart, feel their regret and see their growth, so that when they got back together and they made their apologies and grand gestures it would have felt more real to me.

The writing was good although it left me wanting to get to know more about the characters and the pace felt rushed at times. As I understand it, this is a revised edition of a book from the first series the author wrote. She admitted in an `Afterword' included in this edition of the book that she was "still too green back then" to properly present what she had in mind, so I can overlook most of my pet peeves since I have read some of her later work and can attest to her growth as an author.

Also, this was originally the third book of the series so I understand why I am not getting a complete insight into these characters. I imagine this was given in previous books at the time, so I expect more character development in the installments to come and a more thorough exploration of this relationship. I also enjoyed the back story of the girlfriend, Ally, and how she interacted with both men and the family conflict presented in the story. It is my understanding that these will be explored further in the next revised books, so I am looking forward to reading more of this series. I am especially eager to learn more about Eric. His pain was very palpable and my heart went out to him the most.

All that said, I still think it was a very good story with great follow up potential. So I encourage you to give it a try because after all is said and done, these are great characters and their first foray into a meaningful relationship was a treat to read.

I really wanted to like this. It never felt comfortable. The relationships didn't gel. If the sex had been hot, I would have upped my stars to 3.5, since I'm shallow and can be easily entertained by good sex.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Intensely Emotional & Heartbreaking At Times 26 décembre 2012
Par J. Faltys - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
In this re-worked, newly re-published start to the Courtland Chronicles, the drama is just beginning for two collegians from different economic backgrounds thrown together as a modern-day Oscar and Felix. Eric comes from a family who hides their emotions and hurt others before they let themselves get hurt which has led to him keeping to himself. He tries to keep his surroundings in order since his family life is so out of control until the day a naked football player comes out of his shower. Nick is a farmer's boy used to hard work who's outgoing but keeps a bit of himself hidden from the public. He's turned-off by the sullen Eric at first but a slow bond builds between them that becomes a turn-on to him and has them entering into a relationship that has a profound effect on both of them.

Eric's been out of the closet for many years but Nick doesn't want to deal with the repercussions resulting from this relationship. This becomes a big issue to their happiness. Another issue is Eric's jealousy and fear of admitting his true feelings. This leads to a big speed bump to their happiness that only their mutual friend Ally can fix. This leads to a sweetly satisfying conclusion that feels like the perfect ending.....for now.

The emotional issues in this story are believable and heart wrenching. Eric's home life is sad and I can understand why he's closed himself off. That's why Nick becomes so important to him, he brings peace to his life. He's sturdy and reliable and a breath of fresh air and I love the two of them together. Their relationship built slowly and steadily and culminates in some very sexy sexual interludes that aren't overly erotic, sweetly sensual is how they connect.

Along with these two likable main characters comes their mutual sidekick Ally. She used to date Nick and still has feelings for him but is willing to remain his best friend as she knows how wonderful he and Eric are together. She's outspoken but supportive and sweet and always on the periphery. I get the feeling her story isn't yet done either and I look forward to it being told.

As I never read the original story, this new version feels fresh and is well-written. It's melodramatic yet earthy feeling in its emotions. There's a definite ending with this story but also a sense of a beginning and I for one look forward to Eric and Nick's journey!

Very disappointed. No zip. No zing. No tension. Like a lukewarm bowl of soup hold the salt. All the possible interesting, angsty bits were either skipped past with barely a sentence or resolved in a few paragraphs. We're told these guys are in love, we want them to be in love but where's the passion? Towards the end of the book I even started to dislike them. They were so judgmental of each other and for having such broken hearts didn't make much effort to reconcile. No big emotional pay off for the reader. I'm glad this book was free.

Par Babyboobear - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is an intriguing tale, a love triangle between Eric Courtland, the wealthy spoiled college student, Nick Thompson, the star athlete farm boy, and Ally Taylor, a reporter for the college newspaper. The interesting part is love triangle centers around Nick. This story is not only about being true to your sexuality but also being true to yourself.

Eric Courtland, an heir to a fortune, struggles with knowing what he wants out of life. He rather not commit himself to one life let alone one person. He finds an immediate attraction to his accidental dorm mate, Nick Thompson. His entire life has been riddle with false examples of relationships which ultimately turns him away from wanting to create one.

Nick Thompson is placed in Eric's single dorm room after a mishap in his dorm building. He is a care-free, drama-free type of guy who is trying to live and play the role of the star athlete, but beneath all his muscle and strength, lives a life of secret ambitions. When faced with Eric's difficult mood, he complies to Eric's harsh demands as much as he can but soon it occurs to Nick that Eric is just a person crying out.

Ally Taylor is the third piece of the puzzle. She is the ex-girlfriend of Nick Thompson who remains his friend in the book. Due to his new forming friendship with is roommate, Ally becomes close friends with Eric by default. Even though Nick is adamant about staying friends only, Ally still holds a torch for Nick that she cannot put out.

This book was a page turner to the end. This was my first time reading in this genre and I enjoyed every bit of it. I felt sorry for Eric which is sometimes difficult for a lot of people due to his wealth. But Eric's riches were secondary to his need for love and affection not only from a mate but also from his family. Nick was an all around nice guy and Ally was a very supportive friend no matter what her underlying feelings were. I have recommended this book to a lot of people hoping that someone will open their minds and try something different. A good story is just that - a good story.
