GRL 2018 SPOTLIGHT - Jaime Reese - A Chosen Man (The Men of Halfway House #6)

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

Jaime Reese's A Chosen Man
(The Men of Halfway House #6)


For Wall McCormack, actions speak louder than words. He’s giving and protective, loyal to his friends, and devoted to his job. While confident and powerful enough to conquer any challenge, his greatest strength lies in his calm nature. Until an unexpected assignment sends his world into a loud and colorful chaos he never could have anticipated.

Rejection. It’s something Dylan Vaughn has known his entire life. But he’s a tough nut to crack and refuses to break. Armed with a sharp tongue and brutal honesty, he pushes through life and at anyone who attempts to take him on. Except for the quiet guardian who piques his interest and dares him to want…more.

When Dylan’s past comes back with a vengeance and jeopardizes their growing connection, Wall will stop at nothing to protect the younger man and remain by his side. But convincing Dylan that someone accepts the real man behind the cocky facade might prove to be Wall’s greatest challenge yet.

With his freedom on the line, Dylan must trust the strength of their bond and confront the forces threatening their future. Only then will he realize the dream of acceptance is real and finally have a place to call home.

My Rating - 5 Stars!

I was so excited to read A Chosen Man, and Jaime Reese certainly did not disappoint. Jaime's Men of Halfway House series is absolutely beautiful and impressive. I fell in love with the first book in the series, and each book there after.

It's a romance between two men, who are both familiar with betrayal and pain. Both men are broken and assume they are unworthy of love. Dylan has been abandoned his whole life, is a numbers person, socially awkward and finds people confusing. And Wall, I just adore Wall. He is well developed, and we completely understand his need for honesty and to not be a secret ever again. The attraction is strong from the start, but they certainly hold back on acting on their feelings.

Together, they can help each other to heal, find love and accept that love. They help balance each other out, and they certainly each needed each other.

Their story contains action, suspense and danger, as well as acceptance, healing and love.

And, aside from this couple, we get to revisit the Halfway House guys, and I find myself melting at the way Dylan helps Oz. So wonderful and powerful!

If for some reason A Chosen Man is not on your to-be-read list, add it now! It is an exceptional emotional journey, as Jaime Reese once again manages to write such complicated and intoxicating characters. The writing is strong and powerful, flowing so beautifully at times that it's almost lyrical. My only hope if that she keeps adding to this series!

Jaime Reese 

Jaime Reese is the alter ego of an artist who loves the creative process of writing, just not about herself. Fiction is far more interesting. She has a weakness for broken, misunderstood heroes and feels everyone deserves a chance at love and life. An avid fan of a happy ending, she believes those endings acquired with a little difficulty are more cherished.
