    5 Stars.I loved the first book Crossroads and this was even better..these two are the perfect mixture of sweetness and sexinessRod was introduced in book 1 and I just adored him.He is the owner of sex shop and he s noticed a gorgeous man who seems to be coming into the shopand .Landon has just moved back into the area.He s stuck living at home and is looking for work as a mechanic.With Rod lusting after him big time he asks Bryce from book 1 if he has any work going as 5 Stars.I loved the first book Crossroads and this was even better..these two are the perfect mixture of sweetness and sexinessRod was introduced in book 1 and I just adored him.He is the owner of sex shop and he s noticed a gorgeous man who seems to be coming into the shopand .Landon has just moved back into the area.He s stuck living at home and is looking for work as a mechanic.With Rod lusting after him big time he asks Bryce from book 1 if he has any work going as a mechanic.The two men fall into an easy friendship.Rod makes his intentions clear.he wants Landon.Landon,however,tries to keep him at arms length and thinks sex will spoil their friendship.The attraction between them is too strong and they become lovers.Each man is terrified of getting in to deep due to events in the past.I thought these two worked perfectly together.Just the right amount of sex scenes,drama involving Landon s family and a bit of angst.Really enjoyed it.would definitely recommend

Where to begin I liked Landon and Rod but I didn t love them I just couldn t see them as a couple We met Rod in the first book, selling sex toys to Bryce and Nick He had a crazy fun personality and I immediately knew that I was going to like him I still like him but I couldn t connect with his character in this book He was funny and sexy but he has major daddy abandoning issues Don Are you gay Nope Fuck Me either What a coincidence 3 for Landon and Rod Well.

    I don t know what it is with me but with some authors when I have read 8 10 of their books I get bored, it happened to me last year with a couple of authors I really enjoyed and I am sad to say this has happened with Riley Hart While reading this I did not connect with Rod and Landon I felt nothing for them I don t even remember Bryce and Nick from book one in this series not like I remember the couples from the Blackcreek series like I only read them last week not years ago.I feel like each b I don t know what it is with me but with some authors when I have read 8 10 of their books I get bored, it happened to me last year with a couple of authors I really enjoyed and I am sad to say this has happened with Riley Hart While reading this I did not connect with Rod and Landon I felt nothing for them I don t even remember Bryce and Nick from book one in this series not like I remember the couples from the Blackcreek series like I only read them last week not years ago.I feel like each book is the same old story, guys meet, guys have family issues, guys start f cking, guys can t commit, same old.I really did struggle while reading this and to finish it but I was determined to give it a chance after about 50% I started to skim a lot even the sex scenes just so I could get to the end.This is my opinion please don t let my review stop you from reading this and hopefully enjoying it

    I love these characters Rod Nelson and Landon Harrison both have some pretty deep seated Daddy issues, with good cause, so this allows for a really well done hurt comfort healing arc to the storyline.I loved getting to see Bryce and Nick main characters from the first book in the series, Crossroads living their lives together, still blissfully happy.There s some humor, some sweet fluffy times, and some really good UST that happens early on, though it doesn t thankfully seem to take the guys I love these characters Rod Nelson and Landon Harrison both have some pretty deep seated Daddy issues, with good cause, so this allows for a really well done hurt comfort healing arc to the storyline.I loved getting to see Bryce and Nick main characters from the first book in the series, Crossroads living their lives together, still blissfully happy.There s some humor, some sweet fluffy times, and some really good UST that happens early on, though it doesn t thankfully seem to take the guys as long to get together as it did Bryce and Nick I actually really liked the friends to lovers that happens Then the sexy times start and Woo Hoo Are the sexy times filled with wonderful dirty talk and hot, hot scenesPlease Rod said softly, needy Please what Landon asked, this time using his thumb rubbing circles on Rod s hole Tell me what you need Tell me what will make you feel good Whatever you want just something Landon pulled his hand back Did Rod always sacrifice what he wanted for others Was he always just willing to take what he could get instead of demanding what he needed Tell me what you want, what will make you feel good or I ll stop now It would kill him to stop His balls ached His cock leaked in his shorts, really fucking needing to get off Rod turned his head, brows furrowed as he looked at Landon and it confirmed that this was the right thing to do On some level, it was uncomfortable that he knew what Rod was feeling, that he wanted to do whatever he could to give the man what he needed, but it was there, and he couldn t deny it.Not in this moment He shoved those scattered thoughts away for now Tell me, Landon said again I want you to kiss me Lay on me I want your weight smothering me, your tongue in my mouth, and your fingers in my ass Landon wanted that too. I also loved that there is no bi erasure here Landon knows he s Bi, and fully embraces his love of both sexes In fact, there s not much I didn t love about the story My only complaint is that I was upset with a twist that happens, mostly because I think Rod s first priority should always be Landon, regardless of anything else But that s only my personal opinion and, in the end, it didn t ruin my joy of the story in the whole.The pacing is a bit slow, but I found that to be the same as with Crossroads, so readers should already have the pacing in mind This story, and the series, is just good friends to lovers romanceJust ride it out with me That s what I m doing, riding it out We re shifting gears, that s all Not sure where we re going Not even sure I know how to get there, but let s just try to enjoy the rideRECOMMENDED P.S I can hardly wait for the audio to come out I m hoping for Sean Crisden to narrate again Advanced Review Galley copy of Shifting Gears Crossroads 2 provided by Author in exchange of an honest review.
