GRL 2018 - K-lee Klein - Lazy Sundays (Lazy Days Books #1)

In my attempt to cover some of the attending authors for this year's GRL,
I am reviewing 

K-lee Klein's
Lazy Sundays!


Scott Weston’s car is sensible, his suits are bland, and his job is stable but boring. Mundane routine helps keep his anxiety and obsessive tendencies under control. Socializing—especially dating—isn’t on his list of strong skills either, and, made worse with the echoes of his disapproving mother. So he’s content to stay at home with his lists and cleaning and wildlife documentaries, until a one-night stand goes unexpectedly right.

History has taught Devon DuCaine that dating can be uncomfortable, but there’s just something about Scott. He may be the opposite of Devon’s own long-haired, tattooed, free-wheeling spirit but he brings out the nurturer in Devon. Maybe it’s Scott’s surprising fascination with Devon’s motorcycle, or his shy surprise in moments of affection, but there’s more under those sensible suits than meets the eye. The most important person in Devon’s life, his mom, taught him love and compassion and that’s all he wants to share that with Scott.

Their one-night stand turns into a regular thing, but Scott doesn’t trust it to last. He’s pretty sure Devon is hiding something. He’s even more sure that once Devon gets to know him, the attraction will fade. And then there’s his mother. However many sparks fly between them, Devon will have his work cut out to convince Scott they can have their happily ever after.

(This book was first published as 2 short stories, but this new version has double the content from the originals.)

My Rating - 5 Stars!

I am elated to have discovered K-lee Klein's Lazy Sundays! I love these men. I love their story. I love every damn thing about this book!

Scott and Devon are such opposites, with Scott being a geek and Devon being a manly man. When we meet them, Scott is just watching Devon sleep, thinking about how beautiful he is, but also wondering what Devon even sees in him. 

Poor Scott, he's so insecure, feeling completely out of Devon's league. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Scott has major anxiety issues and often has panic attacks. Major kudos to the way K-lee Klein wrote this character. She writes Scott with so much knowledge, making him realistic and vulnerable. Scott has OCD and there are so many great examples of this in his story. 

Devon, I absolutely adore Devon. I love his secret. I love his friends. And I find his hesitancy to be perfectly developed and explored. 

Scott and Devon's tale includes insecurities, misunderstandings, secrets, pain, grief and more. It's fantastic!

But, most memorable of all is the "sleep stalking," as it's so beautiful, touching and sweet. If you haven't read Lazy Sundays yet, treat yourself and read it!

K-lee Klein

K-lee Klein loves guys with long hair and tattoos, and you’ll often find her front and center at her favorite rock concerts. She has bounced around Western Canada all her life, but will always consider the solitude and beauty of the British Columbian mountains home. Her life is blessed as the proud mother of three now-grown but still spoiled kids, the servant of two bossy felines, and the wife of a truly patient husband.

Her writing muse is terribly temperamental, so to keep him close by and in check, she had him inked on her left calf. The gorgeous, long-haired, mostly naked, kneeling angel that resulted is truly a work of art, although he’s still a handful and hopelessly uncontrollable. She writes on his schedule and inspiration.

K-lee tends to fall easily into obsessions. When something grabs her attention, she jumps into it headfirst with complete abandon. Actors, musicians, superheroes, fictional characters, and brainwashed assassins all hold spots on her cannot-get-enough list. She once followed Thirty Seconds to Mars around the United States and Canada and saw them perform fourteen times that year. Obsession sometimes leads to ideas for her kneeling angel to turn into stories.

Although an introvert in person, she’s extroverted online and has met many wonderful friends there, sometimes with the added fun of meeting them in person at gay romance conferences. She’s grateful for all the people in her life who accept her as she is and support her through her ups and downs as mom, wife, and joyfully obsessed writer.
