Evan Singer is the new guy in town, a paramedic transferred into Station 127 from San Antonio, and he sets his eyes on Lucas from the get-go.

Neither knowing who the other is, their first meeting is explosive, a night of passion and desire that awakens something inside Lucas he never thought he’d feel again.

But when Lucas discovers that Evan is a paramedic, it all comes crashing down. For despite the feelings he has for Evan, Lucas has vowed to never again get involved with someone on the job, after losing Ryan to it.

Can Evan convince Lucas to open up his heart and take a chance on love again, despite who Evan is?

Matthew Tucker is a successful actor on a hit television show, his career on the rise. Life is good. What more could he want?

Daniel Westman, that’s what – his co-star and close friend for the last two years.

Matthew desires more than friendship with Daniel, though, his attraction for the other man growing day by day. So much so that Matthew gives up the safety and security of his current long-term relationship for the slimmest chance of a relationship with Daniel, feeling there’s something between them, just under the surface. And he was gambling his happiness on it.

But months go by, with Matthew suddenly afraid to go forward, to make the first move, to tell Daniel he was falling in love with him. Because if he was wrong, and Daniel was just being his natural charming self and Matthew was looking too deeply into it…he’d lose his best friend.

So instead Matthew longs for his friend in silence, until an accident on set may leave Daniel permanently blinded. With his friend hurt, scared and confused, his life possibly forever altered, Matthew never wavers from Daniel’s side, no matter how difficult it gets.

His dedication brings them closer than ever before , but is it possible to find happiness, and love, in the wake of a tragedy? Or has Matthew’s hesitation cost him that chance and he’ll lose Daniel to the darkness instead?

Can Shane help Tyler break free of a life he’s convinced he deserves before it’s too late, and in the process help them both find love?

Another 4-star advance review for Memory’s Prisoner!

MemorysPrisoner_FBbanner_DSP

I’m thrilled with the review I just received by Lasha at Jessewave Reviews.  I was impressed by how in-depth it was and was also pleased that she commented on the police research I did. Check it out!

Title: Memory’s Prisoner

Author: Jamie Lynn Miller

Cover Artist: LC Chase

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press

Genre: Contemporary M/M

Length: 134 pages

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

A guest review by Lasha

Summary Review: A great hurt-comfort amnesia story that hit all my cop-loving kinks.

 
THE BLURB
Detectives Mitchell Reid and Joseph Valentino of the Chicago Police Department have finally moved from friends to lovers, partners on the job and off. Then an escaped bank robber with a thirst for vengeance shatters their world. The police tactical raid to recapture the convict goes horribly wrong, leaving Mitch severely wounded and Joey with a devastating head injury. They both survive, but Joey’s long-term coma and memory loss will change their lives—and love—forever.

 
THE REVIEW
I’ve enjoyed Jamie Lynn Miller’s last three books, which had some sort of first responders in them; so I was excited to learn she had a new novel coming out from Dreamspinner Press. Memory’s Prisoner also features one of my all-time favorite tropes: amnesia! Add in two cops, who’ve gone from friends to lovers, a psycho bad guy and some awesome hurt-comfort aspects and this book hit all the right spots for me.

 
Mitchell Reid and Joseph Valentino have been police partners for a number of years, but in the last couple of weeks crossed over that line to more than friends when tragedy strikes: Joe is injured on the job, falls into a coma and Mitch is left to struggle alone without his friend/lover. Now if Joe stayed in the coma, this wouldn’t be a romance novel, so Joe does eventually wake up, but he has no memories that Mitch and he were lovers. Cue the hurt/comfort and angst up a notch and you get what Jamie Lynn Miller does best: describe two men finding their way back to each other.

 
What I absolutely adored about this book was the accurate description of the police. Ms. Miller did her research and it shows. Joe and Mitch are perfect examples of dedicated cops and the relationships they have within the department with the secondary characters highlight the camaraderie that cops share. Plus, Joe and Mitch’s friendship is evident throughout the book, so the jump from friends to lovers and back again is seemless. By the end you are rooting for Joe to remember how much he loved Mitch.

 
The only niggle I had was the bad guy. He featured quite heavily in the beginning of the book, his actions result in Joe’s injuries, but I didn’t think there was enough backstory on him to give him the extra voltage to truly be a “villain.” Other than that, I enjoyed Memory’s Prisoner and recommend it for all the hurt-comfort-amnesia loving junkies like myself!

 
Book will be released December 4, 2013.

My first advance review of Memory’s Prisoner

Many thanks to Lorraine Reguly for her 4-star advance review of Memory’s Prisoner at Goodreads!

~~~~~

Although Memory’s Prisoner falls under the genre of male erotic romance, the story the author tells is one of perseverance. When an unfortunate incident renders both of the main characters helpless and in the hospital (one in a coma), the plot thickens, and this tale takes on an air of suspense. It is interesting to see how the lives (and health) of the characters are changed forever. Without giving away the ending, I will say that I think that this book is one that may earmark a new future for the writer.

Thanks, as always, for the support, Lorraine! So happy you enjoyed it. 🙂
