Romance Book Review: Ice Cream on the Side

Author: Wren Boudreau
ISBN: 978-1-60737-484-8
Genre: Suspense/ Erotic Contemporary Romance/M-M
Publisher: Loose-id


First person story about an architect living in a small town whose former lovers suddenly start turning up dead. Dylan normally lives a quiet life working at his architect firm in a growing tourist town. He has finally met a new love that he thinks he wants to spend more time than just a quickie with, but suddenly strange things are happening all around him. His ex decides he wants to get back together, the body of one of his old lovers is found and someone may want his new love dead.

Great story line and mystery as readers try to determine who is after Dylan and whether they want to see him dead or theirs. Overall the story was done well, but the first person dialog didn't seem to work for me in this case.

Dylan Forest is really pretty happy. He's a successful architect, lives in a great little town, and has good friends. More than ten years ago, Dylan’s first boyfriend betrayed him. Since then he’s learned to appreciate men briefly and intensely, with no lingering complications. But Dylan finds himself wanting something more with Michael Gilmore, the new art teacher in town.

Michael moved to Raven Pass to get away after a bad break-up. He just wants to teach and he's got an exhibit of his own work coming up. He doesn't expect to find himself attracted to anyone just yet. He has to give up his fear so he can explore a possible relationship with Dylan.

The guys manage to get past their insecurities and into bed, where they find out just how compatible they are. Before their romance gains momentum; however, life gets complicated. An old dead body and a new murder are both connected to Dylan’s love life, and if the guys can't stop it Michael will be next.
