Présentation de l'éditeur

Steve Campbell used to be a player, until a mid-life crisis opened his eyes to his long-repressed love for Connor, his soon-to-be-married best friend and business partner. Coming out at thirty-eight means learning how to date all over again, and this time, Steve’s not willing to settle for empty one-night stands. He wants the real thing.

Gil Alvarez has never had it easy, struggling through childhood and rejected by his family for a body that didn’t match who he was inside. A skilled driver and mechanic, he’s working hard to make his auto shop a success. The last thing he needs is a rich white guy in a candy-apple-red Ferrari tempting him, but Steve’s ready smile and easygoing manner prove irresistible.

One brief, intimate encounter leaves them both hungry for more. Gil’s not ashamed of who he is, but he’s terrified that Steve will reject him—or worse—when he discovers what Gil can’t find the courage to tell him.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Emotionally Draining Story With a Unique Premise 26 avril 2013
Par J. Faltys - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
It's been a long and emotional journey to reach this final book in the Irresistible Attraction series and it's a memorable way to wrap things up as it deals with an issue not dealt with very often in stories......life as a transgender individual. Ms. Grant deals with the issue in a straight forward and realistic way making the character of Gil both sympathetic and heroic. It also brings back Steve who until recently has been playing the field but who has become older and wiser and now yearns for something more permanent.

Steve hasn't always been likable, but since admitting his sexuality he's become a more thoughtful and caring individual and seeing him so concerned about another person warms my heart. The feelings Gil inspires in him caught him off guard and seeing a bumbling Steve try to woo him was a sweetly endearing sight to see. Everything else has come so easy to Steve it's about time that he's had to work for something, that makes their relationship more worthwhile.

Gil's life has been one betrayal after another. First it's his body that betrays him as he knows he's been born the wrong sex, then it's his family who turns on him and casts him out, and the final betrayal is that of a former lover whose addictive lifestyle almost dragged him down completely and whose return again sets him up for more hurts. Steve is the first person in a long time to make him feel special and to want him as is though Gil fights him every step of the way out of fear of being hurt again. Gil is a truly inspirational character to have gone through so much hatred early in life and still be willing to put his heart on the line. He's truly deserving of the man Steve is now and the happiness Steve longs to bring to him.

The majority of the story is a slow build-up of trust to a final sexual interlude that is more about acceptance than sex. There's a sense of hope at the end after so much heartache. While this ending isn't a true HEA, there's a definite HFN conclusion that's just as satisfying. Leading to this conclusion is one or two things that dragged this story down for me. One of those was the sudden appearance of Chas, the ex who again brought heartache to Gil through his lying and cheating ways. He has no redeeming qualities and his sole purpose seemed to be to hurt Gil yet again and drive a wedge between him and Steve. Considering how short the story is, valuable time was wasted on such a despicable character that should've been spent on advancing Gil and Steve's relationship. Another thing that felt out of place was the street racing angle that was included and just as quickly excluded. Barring these issues I still found much to enjoy and admire in Flawless and though there are some flaws I still recommend this story for its unique theme and for a truly memorable character in Gil.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not completely flawless 6 mai 2013

This novella was good - well-written and compelling story. Could have been a bit longer - I felt the relationship needed a bit more development to make Steve's commitment to enter into an unusual relationship believable. Also - I HIGHLY suggest people read this series in a different order. I would read this one 3rd and Fearless 4th. It would make a great deal more sense - don't know why they put this one last.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An amazing addition to the series! 23 avril 2013
Par Shirley Frances (LeAnn's Book Reviews) - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Steve has been lonely, longing for something more than one-night stands now that he has finally accepted his sexual orientation. He has everything a man should want - a great job, money and a fast car. Now all he wants is to find that real connection to someone else.

Gil has had a rough past, especially with his family's acceptance of who he truly is. He is in a place where he is working hard to make a life for himself, living from job to job to make ends meet and sometimes fearful of how people will react when they get to know him.

Steve and Gil meet when Steve's sports car doesn't start and Gil steps up to help. Steve is immediately attracted to Gil, but he doesn't know how to go about getting a date with the guy. This whole business of dating as a gay man is new to him and he is afraid of being rejected, especially now that he knows he wants something permanent and not only a hook-up. Gil, on the other hand, is so focused on Steve's financial status that he immediately dismisses his attraction to him, thinking he is like every rich man that comes to his shop. Later on he relents and their journey in finding something real begins.

I admit that when I read the previous books in the series, Steve didn't caught my attention one bit. I had not read his story as was related in Doubtless. However, I am happy to say that he finally caught my eye and his story was amazing.

I loved this story! Cat Grant did an amazing job in bringing to the page a story of understanding, letting go and second chances in love. Flawless was packed-full of emotions ranging from fear of rejection on both parts to acceptance of an unexpected situation and ending in elation at finally finding someone worthy to fight for. I especially enjoyed how the character's complexity added to development of the story. As each layer was peeled away from the characters, I got to know them better and fully came to understand where each was coming from. Once I got to understand that, I truly felt connected to both of them and found myself cheering them on. I wanted to smack them upside their heads every time they overreacted, cried with some of the emotions presented and had a happy grin on my face by the time the book ended.

Of course, the chemistry between these two was easily palpable, but I appreciated the fact that the author took her time bringing them together. Steve and Gil truly did have issues to overcome and obstacles to get through to be together and if those weren't dealt with as the story progressed I wouldn't have enjoyed this story as much.

Cat Grant's writing was everything I have come to expect from her and then some. She managed to bring to the page a complex concept and she did it well. It showed that she did her research, which helped me to further understand Gil's feelings, hesitations and actions. She did a wonderful job of keeping the subject matter accurate while still making Steve and Gil's story interesting and entertaining.

Although Flawless is the fourth book in the Irresistible Attraction series, it can certainly be read as a stand alone since the author does a great job of giving you enough back story for you to know what has happened in previous installments without making you feel overwhelmed. I only wish the story was longer. I would have loved to see how Steve and Gil's relationship developed further.

I received this title from Riptide Publishing through NetGalley in exchange of my honest opinion.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 C rating.... 23 avril 2013
Par Smitten with Reading - Publié sur Amazon.com

My Review:
I've read the rest of this series, so I thought I knew what I was getting when I accepted this book for review. I should have read the story description better. I won't spoil the book, but it definitely was not what I was expecting and was my first book that I've read like this.

We've met Steve before...he's a guy definitely in the middle of a sexual epiphany. This is a guy who's been a player, with women, for a long time. Until last year when he discovered that he was in love with his business partner. He's since decided that he's actually bisexual.

Gil runs an auto repair shop. He's someone who's on the edge...his business is barely hanging on, his ex is hanging on too much, and Steve just makes him nervous.

They both really, really like each other despite the issues that keep coming up between them. Most of the problem is coming from Gil who's hiding something that could affect Steve's perspective of him. It colors everything in their relationship.

Like I said, this is the first book I've read with this particular circumstance. While I have no personal issues with it, I found that it wasn't something that appealed to me as a reader. It definitely affected my enjoyment of the book. And I'm not sure why...probably just because it's such a foreign thing to me. I also had real issues with the way that Gil let it come out. He just set himself up to get hurt, because he blindsided Steve, so it didn't give Steve a chance to act with anything BUT shock.... He was completely blindsided and that wasn't fair to either one of them.

There was a happy ending, but the overall feel of the book gave me an unhappy, unsettled feeling and that's not what I want from my reading.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Terrific Sensitively Told Story of Identity and Love 17 juin 2013
Par Melanie Marshall - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Rating: 4.25 stars out of 5

Steve Campbell's life has just hit a few speed bumps now that he has gotten a little older. His best friend and coworker has found true love, and now has little time to spend with Steve. They are also arguing about a new client and the direction a job should take. On top of that, Steve is frustrated by comparing his life to that of Connor's new status as a happy man in love. Steve had long repressed his feelings for Connor, preferring to stay safely in the "straight" category until it was too late and Connor had met someone else. Steve realizes that his life is stuck on hold but is unsure how to move on, romantically and sexually.

Then Steve's Ferrari refuses to start up in the parking lot outside his gym, and Gil Alvarez comes to his rescue. Gil Alvarez has not had an easy life. He has struggling through childhood and rejected by his family for a body that didn't match who he was inside. A skilled driver and mechanicm Gil Alvarez now owns his own body shop but is struggling to make it a success. With all the complications he is currently dealing with, a white, rich, clueless guy is not what he needs in his life.

But one date and steamy night later and both Gil and Steve realize their lives have changed forever. Steve wants a committed long term relationship and thinks Gil is the one man for him, if he could just stop putting his foot in his mouth whenever the other man is near. For Gil, the obstacles are much greater. Gil's ex has reentered Gil's life, and not in a good way. Plus Gil harbors a secret that he fears will turn Steve away once it is revealed. Can Gil and Steve pull down the barriers between them and have the life and relationship both men crave or will they let love slip away?

Flawless is the fourth book in the Irresistible Attraction series but the first one I have read. Based on the high quality of the story I just read, I know I will be running back to grab up the rest of the books in the series. At 91 pages, it might seem a quick read but don't let that short length fool you into thinking that it will be short on characterization and plot depth. Quite the contrary. From a slightly fluffy "boy meets boy" romcom meet cute start, the story then veers into a more complicated, and realistic tale of self-actualization as well as finding the courage to stand up for who you are as well as who you love. I have to admit I thought Steve Campbell pretty funny from a number of angles as well as being a realistic representation of a man who has been more caught up in his career than his personal life. Steve is someone not at ease in a casual conversation, particularly when he is talking to someone he is attracted to. Being brilliant in a lab does not translate necessarily to one's personal life. Steve is awkward and just finding out who he is late in life, a wonderful characterization.

Gil, on the other hand, is someone Cat Grant has imbued with a number of personality traits more in line with someone who has had to pull himself up from a poor start to achieve his goals, yet Gil has more a feeling for community and history than Steve does. And there are further, more fundamental issues here that are only hinted at in the book blurb from Riptide Publishing. I really don't want to get into that here, mostly because how it is brought to Steve's and therefore the reader's attention is so beautifully done that I would hate to spoil it for you all.

At the core of this love story is the fundamental idea of self, of one's true nature. For Steve, it is something he has only recently acknowledged after having repressed feelings towards men all his life. It has cost him Connor and now he wants to come out but doesn't know how. Gil is Steve's opposite. Gil has always known he is a man but the consequences of that knowledge is something he is still having to deal with. Cat Grant does a wonderful job with this aspect of the story, treating it realistically and with great sensitivity. Gil Alvarez is a terrific character, one who captured my sympathies and compassion immediately, if nothing else but for the manner in which Gil was reaching for his goals, no matter the obstacles in his path.

I will admit that the length of the book does come into play. At 91 pages, Steve and Gil get a HFN rather than a HEA, there just is not enough time for them to achieve a deeper relationship. And that is precisely what this story needs in my opinion, a little longer peak into their relationship down the line to see how they adjusted to commitment and each other's life. But as it is, I highly recommend Flawless, it is a great read and one that shouldn't be missed.
