    Review posted at The Armchair Reader.It s time for another Jack Greene review and giveaway Jack is so wonderful because whenever he sends me a book to review he always offers a giveaway And was I ever excited to read and review this book For the past few stories that Jack has published, I ve known that a full novel, his first, was in the works I was interested to see what kind of story Jack would write for his first novel and how it would pan out I ve been a fan of his stories for a few yea Review posted at The Armchair Reader.It s time for another Jack Greene review and giveaway Jack is so wonderful because whenever he sends me a book to review he always offers a giveaway And was I ever excited to read and review this book For the past few stories that Jack has published, I ve known that a full novel, his first, was in the works I was interested to see what kind of story Jack would write for his first novel and how it would pan out I ve been a fan of his stories for a few years now, but he has a definite style short and heavy on sex.I was really pretty blown away by what I saw I say I ve been a fan for a while now, but I ve never given Jack the top rating I ve never loved one of his books, though I ve liked many of them quite a bit Still, I warn you that this won t be everyone s cup of tea While I loved it, I know many won t A fundamental part of the story is cheating, no if ands or buts about it and that will bother many But, it doesn t usually bother me, and I could see that there were steps taken to lessen the impact, like having Chris wife be rather standoffish Chris even wonders if she s having an affair too, and there are some details that lead you to believe that might be the case There aren t any wallowing in hurt feelings Still, those sensitive to cheating in all forms will definitely want to steer clear.I think what I loved the most about this book is that Jack did exactly what I always wanted In reading his short stories, they usually ended before we really got into the characters and their problems, neuroses, etc We just didn t get to know them as well as we could have and most of the emphasis in those stories was based on the sex I usually categorize them as erotica That s great, I love erotica as well as romance And I hope that he isn t upset when I admit how surprised I was to find this novel so different than those stories Not only do we get deep into the characters, but the emphasis here is definitely on romance, no matter how gritty and raunchy their sex gets and it s goooood The basis of the story is a classic Gay for You story Chris has always been straight, and he s generally an honorable man He s never cheated on his wife and he does love her But they ve grown apart after six years of marriage, settling into a sibling like friendship and living like barely speaking roommates So when he meets a man who shows him some attention on a business trip, he runs with it, surprising himself by his attraction With little angst about what that attraction means, Chris dives headfirst into his illicit relationship In fact, he has a bigger issue in trying to earn Leif s trust and get to know the surly and complicated man than in investigating his own feelings He only knows that he s falling head first for someone he never thought he would, while at the same time trying to lesson the hurt he s causing to his wife.I liked quite a bit about this book I liked that we get to see the relationship past the marriage phase and into the two building a life together I like that Chris straddles the line of his own honor but still remained likable to me And mostly, I liked the character Jack created in Leif, who remains an enigma right up until the very last page, where I finally felt like I understood him The delivery of information about Leif is subtle and given to us in small bits, so that we get to know Leif like Chris does.I can only surmise that all those short stories Jack wrote simply gave him lots of writing practice for his first novel, because I was really blown away by how much I enjoyed it I ll be thinking of this couple for a while and I would love for Jack to continue writing novels Of course, I don t want him to stop writing those super sexy shorts either

    I am a huge fan of Jack Greene s books I love his characters and the passion they have between them always sizzles up by ereader screen Not only does he write stories that are almost always my favorites, I find myself re reading his books whenever I need a pick me up or if I m in the mood for a fun, sexy and well rounded story I was thrilled to see that Mr Greene had finally published a longer story Most of his books are quick, hot reads, so I felt like celebrating when I noticed that this I am a huge fan of Jack Greene s books I love his characters and the passion they have between them always sizzles up by ereader screen Not only does he write stories that are almost always my favorites, I find myself re reading his books whenever I need a pick me up or if I m in the mood for a fun, sexy and well rounded story I was thrilled to see that Mr Greene had finally published a longer story Most of his books are quick, hot reads, so I felt like celebrating when I noticed that this is a much longer book than what he usually gives us.Indiscretion is a very hot and sensual novel of forbidden love and new beginnings When I first noticed the title and read the blurb, I admit I was a tad bit worried because I had a feeling that cheating might be involved I am not a fan of reading about cheating characters, but I was pleasantly surprised Why Yes, Chris is trapped in a loveless marriage and when he meets Leif, he is not only shocked by his attraction to him, but ashamed of his need to be with him Although, Chris is married, their marriage is definitely one of convenience Honestly, his wife plays a very minimal part in the book Chris doesn t think badly of her, but knows that the feelings they once had for each other is gone She has her own life, they rarely spend time together and the sex between them has been non existent for months I felt badly for him and for her to be this marriage and was honestly glad to see them both get on with their lives Now, I know the cheating factor will keep some readers from reading this book, but I urge any fans of Mr Greene s work and fans of M M romances in general to give this one a shot I wasn t disappointed in it whatsoever and ended up really rallying behind Chris and Leif s relationship.Chris is an all around nice guy Although, he s got a great job, takes excellent care of himself and has a life that most people would be envious of But Chris is not happy He wishes his personal life was as good as his professional one, but for some time now, he s been miserable When he goes on a business trip and meets the mysterious and sexy, Leif, at a bar Chris can t believe how much he is intrigued and attracted to him Chris hasn t ever felt drawn to anyone much less a man like he is to Leif, and although he s confused by his attraction to him, Chris can t keep from wanting him and needing to knowabout him.Leif what can I say about Leif He s intelligent, funny, sexy and can be very bratty Although he s never been short of admirers, he s totally blown away by Chris and the intense attraction and feelings he develops for him Throughout most of the novel, Leif is quite mysterious I loved watching him open up to Chris and seeing who the complex, interesting man he really was I thought these two men had a strong chemistry between them that was not only passionate they truly developed a deep friendship and respect for each other too.As you can tell, I really loved this book Indiscretion has definitely earned a spot on my keeper shelf I can t wait to readbooks written by Mr Greene and I m anxiously waiting for his next release If you are in the mood for a well written novel about two men who share a deep affection and attraction between each other, then Indiscretion is definitely the book for you Highly Recommended

    I couldn t tell you whether this book is any good, but I can tell you that I enjoyed quite a bitthan I expected Thing is, it hit all my guilty pleasure spots big blonde possessive top, temperamental brunette, gfy, clandestine romance, crazy hotness So, um, yeah, I was really into it.

    I m a sucker for M M books where one of the main characters is just discovering or acting on his attraction to the same sex When I started reading this book I thought I was going to absolutely love it but for some reason I wasn t able to feel like Chris and Leif have really connected The sex scenes were great and pretty hot but I felt like there was all that existed between then I was expecting to feel that connection that gives me goose bumps when I read about but unfortunately it never happ I m a sucker for M M books where one of the main characters is just discovering or acting on his attraction to the same sex When I started reading this book I thought I was going to absolutely love it but for some reason I wasn t able to feel like Chris and Leif have really connected The sex scenes were great and pretty hot but I felt like there was all that existed between then I was expecting to feel that connection that gives me goose bumps when I read about but unfortunately it never happened with them Aside from that, the writing is great and the sentences have great structure, which is very important for me 3.5 Stars

    I am a huge fan of Jack Greene s books I love his characters and the passion they have between them always sizzles up by ereader screen Not only does he write stories that are almost always my favorites, I find myself re reading his books whenever I need a pick me up or if I m in the mood for a fun, sexy and well rounded story I was thrilled to see that Mr Greene had finally published a longer story Most of his books are quick, hot reads, so I felt like celebrating when I noticed that this I am a huge fan of Jack Greene s books I love his characters and the passion they have between them always sizzles up by ereader screen Not only does he write stories that are almost always my favorites, I find myself re reading his books whenever I need a pick me up or if I m in the mood for a fun, sexy and well rounded story I was thrilled to see that Mr Greene had finally published a longer story Most of his books are quick, hot reads, so I felt like celebrating when I noticed that this is a much longer book than what he usually gives us.Indiscretion is a very hot and sensual novel of forbidden love and new beginnings When I first noticed the title and read the blurb, I admit I was a tad bit worried because I had a feeling that cheating might be involved I am not a fan of reading about cheating characters, but I was pleasantly surprised Why Yes, Chris is trapped in a loveless marriage and when he meets Leif, he is not only shocked by his attraction to him, but ashamed of his need to be with him Although, Chris is married, their marriage is definitely one of convenience Honestly, his wife plays a very minimal part in the book Chris doesn t think badly of her, but knows that the feelings they once had for each other is gone She has her own life, they rarely spend time together and the sex between them has been non existent for months I felt badly for him and for her to be this marriage and was honestly glad to see them both get on with their lives Now, I know the cheating factor will keep some readers from reading this book, but I urge any fans of Mr Greene s work and fans of M M romances in general to give this one a shot I wasn t disappointed in it whatsoever and ended up really rallying behind Chris and Leif s relationship.Chris is an all around nice guy Although, he s got a great job, takes excellent care of himself and has a life that most people would be envious of But Chris is not happy He wishes his personal life was as good as his professional one, but for some time now, he s been miserable When he goes on a business trip and meets the mysterious and sexy, Leif, at a bar Chris can t believe how much he is intrigued and attracted to him Chris hasn t ever felt drawn to anyone much less a man like he is to Leif, and although he s confused by his attraction to him, Chris can t keep from wanting him and needing to knowabout him.Leif what can I say about Leif He s intelligent, funny, sexy and can be very bratty Although he s never been short of admirers, he s totally blown away by Chris and the intense attraction and feelings he develops for him Throughout most of the novel, Leif is quite mysterious I loved watching him open up to Chris and seeing who the complex, interesting man he really was I thought these two men had a strong chemistry between them that was not only passionate they truly developed a deep friendship and respect for each other too.As you can tell, I really loved this book Indiscretion has definitely earned a spot on my keeper shelf I can t wait to readbooks written by Mr Greene and I m anxiously waiting for his next release If you are in the mood for a well written novel about two men who share a deep affection and attraction between each other, then Indiscretion is definitely the book for you Highly Recommended

    I m a sucker for M M books where one of the main characters is just discovering or acting on his attraction to the same sex When I started reading this book I thought I was going to absolutely love it but for some reason I wasn t able to feel like Chris and Leif have really connected The sex scenes were great and pretty hot but I felt like there was all that existed between then I was expecting to feel that connection that gives me goose bumps when I read about but unfortunately it never happ I m a sucker for M M books where one of the main characters is just discovering or acting on his attraction to the same sex When I started reading this book I thought I was going to absolutely love it but for some reason I wasn t able to feel like Chris and Leif have really connected The sex scenes were great and pretty hot but I felt like there was all that existed between then I was expecting to feel that connection that gives me goose bumps when I read about but unfortunately it never happened with them Aside from that, the writing is great and the sentences have great structure, which is very important for me 3.5 Stars

    A good solid read The story had everything, some of it surprised me, some of it didn t, but I laughed and also came very close to crying at one point near the end, too I loved Chris s transformation as he came to terms with his attraction love for Lief and how he grew as a character I also loved Lief s sarcastic comments Some of the banter between these two men was so genuine and heartfelt The two of them fit together perfectly and they definitely had a way of bringing out the best in each A good solid read The story had everything, some of it surprised me, some of it didn t, but I laughed and also came very close to crying at one point near the end, too I loved Chris s transformation as he came to terms with his attraction love for Lief and how he grew as a character I also loved Lief s sarcastic comments Some of the banter between these two men was so genuine and heartfelt The two of them fit together perfectly and they definitely had a way of bringing out the best in each other My negatives would be that some of the loose ends tied up at the end seemed a bit too easy for me to fully believe and that is the only reason I couldn t give this story a full 5 stars Even still, it didn t keep me from enjoying the story and loving every lustful, sweaty detail I would highly recommend
