Romance Book Review: Blackpoint Surrendered

Author: A.J. Llewellyn and D.J. Manly
ISBN: 978-1-55487-069-1
Genre: Romance/ Contemporary/ M/M


Nicely written story about two authors who meet over the Internet. Rose/Thomas started his career as a romance author when readers thought all romance writers were women. So he took a woman's name and became highly successful. Matt was an author in the new age, when it was okay to say he was a man writing romance and to top it off he came out and told everyone he was gay as well.

Though Internet exchanges the two become close friends, but Matt still doesn't know that Rose is actually Thomas. Now it is time to meet and it is anyone's guess how Matt will react.

This is collaboration between two fantastic M/M writers. The story line is strong and with some really funny scenes throughout the drama of dealing with relationships and the realities of being an author in the romance industry.

Matt and Thomas are living the Hollywood life. For Thomas, it's a fast and frenzied education into the behind-the-scenes machinations of what it's like being an author whose novel is bent, folded and mutilated by the billion-dollar movie industry. When the production company suggests Matt, who is the executive in charge of production, start scouting for locations in Canada, he jumps at the chance since this is Thomas' home country.

Vancouver, the "Canadian Hollywood" however, holds bitter, dark memories for Thomas who finds his very first love, the handsome and talented artist named Daniel is still there and holding more than a candle for him. Daniel's love burns like a raging wildfire. Will Thomas cave into his reawakened feelings, or is his love for Matt enough to overcome the tragedy of his past?
