BLOG TOUR:📚 KRIS COOK WITH THE COWBOY IN UNIT E (A MOCKINGBIRD PLACE NOVEL) MY REVIEW AND A #GIVEAWAY
“Yes, I recommend the series. Smokin' hot and smart men who are not afraid to expose their feelings or get in touch with their emotional side. Well done, again, Mr. Cook! I look forward to the next book - impatiently!“ ~4 Star Review from Happily Ever Chapter
Though starting in straight erotic romance, Kris's total focus now is on gay romance. When asked why recently, his answer was "My muse finally came out of the closet. Isn't it about time? I’ve been out since I was twenty-five." A voracious reader, Kris loves many genres of fiction, but this writer's favorite books are romances that are edgy, sexy, with rich characters and unique challenges. Kris' influences include Anne Rice, JR Ward, Lexi Blake and Shayla Black. Last year, Kris married the love of his life Stephen.
The Cowboy in Unit E, by Kris Cook, is the second novella in his A Mockingbird Place series. If you read the first book, The Marine in Unit A, then you are familiar with the residents that live there and what a joy they are to visit.
Ava and Luke are moving into Unit A and to everyone watching from the distance it appears that they are a loving, married couple and are expecting a baby very soon. However, everything is not as it appears and one tenant gets started on the wrong foot when Luke does a little flirting.
Trace is attracted to Luke as soon as he sees him and wants to make a move. When he sees a photo of Luke and Ava at a wedding, their own, he is devastated and leaves without allowing Luke to explain.
Trace is an artist and painting is not only his passion but it's therapy. Still suffering from a childhood trauma he can't find it within himself to show his work to anyone, saying that it is his therapy and can't be shared.
Jackson, Trace's best friend and roommate understands and supports Trace with his art, but he thinks Trace needs to talk to Luke and find out his story. He knows how bad Trace wants to find someone to love and the cute cowboy across the hall is definitely giving some interested signals.
This story is a sweet and emotional journey for the characters as well as the reader. There are some very important issues that are addressed and the author allows the characters to work it out in their own pace.
There is a lot of love at Mockingbird Place and I love how all of the neighbors come together to help each other out. They are always there for each other regardless of the situation.
The Cowboy in Unit E is an enjoyable, fast-paced story with little angst but with lots of emotion and affection. We meet new characters, we get to see characters from the previous book get their moment that we've all been waiting to see, and we are introduced to the characters in the next book.
Mockingbird Place is quickly becoming a familiar hangout where you can curl up on the couch, grab a cup of coffee, and visit with old friends for the day. As the new tenants are brought into the family dynamic we are able to laugh with them and share in their joy and love. And, there will be a few surprises that you don't want to miss.
Each book, in my opinion, can be read as a standalone, however knowing the history of Mockingbird Place, what it means to most of the people living there is very important and shouldn't be missed.
