Lost in Loveland
Loveland, Colorado is a special place all year around, a community of creativity and art, with scenic views and majestic mountains. But the town really shines once a year, on Valentine’s Day.
Lucky Roberts has lived in Loveland his whole life. He has good friends, strong family support, and is all about keeping his community fun and alive. The only thing Lucky has been “unlucky” with is love. But rather than avoiding February fourteenth in his hometown, he throws himself into helping others deliver their messages of love.
Enter Jack Canon. Jack moved to Loveland for a fresh start, in both his personal and professional lives. After a tough year, he’s finally hoping to just blend in, maybe carve a little niche for himself that his parents would have been proud of. What he didn’t expect was a pseudo-lumberjack with a killer body and shy smile to turn his world upside down – and he sure didn’t expect to like it so much.
When Lucky meets Jack, he feels like a thirteen year-old with his first crush. He’s clumsy, stammering, and the first greeting out of his mouth is a less than articulate, “Wow!” Words like adorable and manbun suddenly become part of his vocabulary as he discovers a deep, hidden need to romance the hell out of Jack.
And what better way to do that than during the most romantic season in the City of Love?
This is the kind of a story that warms your heart and makes you giggle.
This time I will review the first two books of Welcome to Loveland series simply because Lost in Loveland is the sequel of Lucky in Loveland.
From the very first page, I felt this is what I need. It starts with Lucky meeting Jack. Jack is a kindergarten teacher, who comes to Loveland to forget about his parents’ death and to run away from his vicious sisters.
Lucky is a funny, very kind, very innocent and adorable shy man. His first look at Jack takes his breath and his ability to talk, away. He mumbles, growls, blushes and then just wow…
Then the conquering starts. Lucky shows Jack around, guiding him through Loveland and Jack’s confusing feelings. They partake in numerous events, what takes place in town, and Lucky shows Jack Loveland’s most famous activity is.
The first book ends with a HFN that tends to go toward HEA, but then things happen…
In book two Lost in Loveland, things get a bit messy. Jack still has problems opening up to Lucky. For Jack, it seems that they’re going too fast. So when an emergency call, calls him back to L.A. he doesn’t invite Lucky along.
That leaves Lucky feel insecure. He knows that he’s in love, but he didn’t confess it to Jack. It’s too soon to feel those feelings anyway…But when Jack tells him that he’s going back alone, Lucky fears that he will lose him, that Jack, will not come back to him. And he knows, deep down he knows that Jack will need him like never before.
The second book is as good as the first one. A bit angsty. We’ll meet Jack sisters, who treat Jack like their own servant. We’ll learn about what really made Jack move to Loveland…
This series is amazing. Even though it’s a light and fast read you will get lost in the picturesque of Loveland as well as the growing feelings between these two men.
K-lee Klein loves guys with long hair and tattoos, and you’ll often find her front and center at her favorite rock concerts. She has bounced around Western Canada all her life, but will always consider the solitude and beauty of the British Columbian mountains home. Her life is blessed as the proud mother of three now-grown but still spoiled kids, the servant of two bossy felines, and the wife of a truly patient husband.
Her writing muse is terribly temperamental, so to keep him close by and in check, she had him inked on her left calf. The gorgeous, long-haired, mostly naked, kneeling angel that resulted is truly a work of art, although he’s still a handful and hopelessly uncontrollable. She writes on his schedule and inspiration.
K-lee tends to fall easily into obsessions. When something grabs her attention, she jumps into it headfirst with complete abandon. Actors, musicians, superheroes, fictional characters, and brainwashed assassins all hold spots on her cannot-get-enough list. She once followed Thirty Seconds to Mars around the United States and Canada and saw them perform fourteen times that year. Obsession sometimes leads to ideas for her kneeling angel to turn into stories.
Although an introvert in person, she’s extroverted online and has met many wonderful friends there, sometimes with the added fun of meeting them in person at gay romance conferences. She’s grateful for all the people in her life who accept her as she is and support her through her ups and downs as mom, wife, and joyfully obsessed writer.
