I'm being lazy I realise, but I had to read all four books in this series, and didn't have the time to write a review of each novel as I finished it (I had to start the next in series because they are such a good read).
St. Nacho's is a small, lost-in-time, west coast town which draws people to it and they stay and find love/hapiness/their life partner.
All four novels are stand alone although characters from previous novels re-appear in the further novels. All four are extremely well written and I mean...extremely well written!
Z.A. writes M/M romance, and her novels have plot, character(s) pathos, empathy, happiness, sadness, humour, romance, sex.
The sex is not gratuitous, although my only, and this is on a personal level, critism would be... that it is rather graphic. I appreciate that some readers like this.
References to "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" (in a humorous adult context) make me wonder or hope that Z.A. will write her "Magician's Nephew" and tell us how St. Nacho's came to be.

David is rich, damaged physically and emotionally, and gorgeous. Cam is a muscular, hot as hell firefighter with a heart of gold and an apparent suspicion of David. So, of course the two guys fall into bed and love. The sex is great, the plot compelling, if not completely convincing, and if you are a sucker for a sexy gay romance, then this one will do nicely.

I liked the book, having read its prequel - Jacob's Ladder, and found the continuity and familiarity of St Nacho's and the folks that live there a nice place to be for a while. I ended up wanting to know more about Cam's family and maybe the author will fill that particular gap in due course. I've decided to read further prequels so if anything is a recommendation maybe that is.
Not a literary masterpiece but a slow comfortable read that made me turn the page and want to know more. Bree is not a person I might know - who turns arounds quite like that after all? If Cam exists anywhere - could someone please introduce me! He sounded perfect!

I loved the characters of Dan and Cam in Jacob's Ladder and was left with a sense of incompleteness and definitely wanting to know "what happens next". In fact, I did contact the author to ask her if she might consider writing a follow up. She very kindly replied that she was at that time working on it! I then had to wait - extremely impatiently - but the result was well worth it.
The road to romance wasn't all smooth going but Dan and Cam get there and I finished it with a happy and contented sigh.
It concludes (unless the author has other plans - I can but hope) the Nachos series perfectly.
