Release Blitz & Review: Out of the Blue

Title: Out of the Blue
Author: Lila Rose
Genre: Romance
Release Date: October 23, 2018

At forty, Lan Davis is looking for his damned picket fence and 2.5 kids. What he doesn’t expect is instead of a wife in the picture, his mind keeps conjuring up images of two men. One, his partner in the force, who is as straight as they came, the other an ex, who he’d hurt but never forgot.

After an incident leaves Lan injured, the two men rally around him… only maybe they shouldn’t have. It seems a medicated Lan is a truthful one.

Parker Wilding is pissed at the world. His anger builds when his partner refuses medical care after an attack. Instead, Lan entrusts his neighbour to take care of him—a guy Parker doesn’t trust. While he’s aware they share a history, when the past is revealed, the truth shocks the hell out of him.

Being emotionally crushed ten years ago, Easton Ravel hoped he would never have to see the man who broke him again. Hope is a fickle b*itch. And now he’s not sure how to handle being face-to-face with the man he once loved. Add in the mix the annoying, testy Parker, and Easton finds his limits are pushed.

Just not in the way he thought they would be.

What happens next sure does come out of the blue.

This is my first read of this author. The book isn't part of a series but as far as I can tell, it it loosly tied to her MC series.  For me that was a nice surprise.  I picked the book based on the synopsis and then got rough MC guys on top of that.  Win!

I liked the way the story unfolds.  Lan is partners with Parker as a detective and he has a romantic past with Easton that broke both their hearts.  Circumstances bring the men together and things just roll from there.  

I enjoyed the secondary characters and they made we want to read their stories too.  This story was a nice slow burn to get our three friends in the right place to admit their feelings for each other.  I liked the added suspense element.  

Good story.  Happy to read more by this author.
