Bookreview / May 22, 2016

A Mended Man by Jaime Reese is the 4th part in the Halfway House series. Previously I read and reviewed part 1, 2 and 3. I absolutely loved those parts, so I had high hopes for this new chapter to the story. And were those hopes satisfied? Yes and no, but I will get into that later on.

Bookreview / September 20, 2015

A Restored Man is part 3 in the Men of Halfway House series and once again I find this part better than the previous ones. Part 1 was good, part 2 was great, but part 3 is so far the best of all. By now we know the setting these stories play in, so I will not go in to that anymore. Suffice to say that Cole Renzo, who we briefly met in part 2, is doing his time in the Halfway House and trying to stay on the right path. As part of his time in the House, he needs to hold down a job. He finds a job in a car repair shop and his new boss Ty Calloway very much peeks his interest. Ty Calloway owns and runs a very high in demand shop and he thought he had his life together. Until that one night when everything changed and he lost all that he held dear. Now, 2 years later, he is slowly rebuilding his life and getting things together. That is, until his new employee Cole awakens feelings he hasn’t had in a long time. Will both men be able to work through their problems…
