REVIEW TOUR - Love is a Walk in the Park by VL Locey & Stephanie Locey

Pre-Order Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Universal Link

Cover Design: Meredith Russell

Length: 50,000 words approx.


Sullivan Haines knows exactly what he wants out of life. Fame as a Broadway dancer and to find the man of his dreams. Sadly, his love life is a dismal mess, his roommate is PMS personified, and working at a dingy dance studio teaching old people how to tango and foxtrot is not exactly the bright lights. Actually, life in the Big Apple is pretty rotten, until he and his dog run into tall, dark, and oh-so-handsome Duane Hart in the park. Their pooches hit it right off, but can the two men find romance along the park’s winding paths?

Duane Hart hasn’t had a lot go right in his life. His girlfriend recently broke up with him, taking everything that wasn’t nailed down or in his roommate’s name. Well, everything except the Yorkshire terrier that he didn’t want to get in the first place, and that she now refuses to take back. However, when he meets a handsome stranger and his pit bull in the dog park, will the blooming heat in his chest be able to convince him to start dating again? Or will fate prove love isn’t a walk in the park, after all?

My Rating - 4 Stars!

Love is a Walk in the Park is a sweet romance by VL Locey and Stephanie Locey. 

Duane and Sullivan are just adorable together. They meet at a dog park and a sweet romance slowly evolves. The dogs are wonderful, of course, and just make me happy sigh.

Their story consists of coming out, sexual assault, and the struggle of trying to be a dancer on Broadway. It consists of facing one's fears, standing up for oneself, and overcoming a crappy breakup. 

I love Sullivan. He's sassy and a whole lot of fun. I want a Sully in my life!

The sexual assault, and it's aftermath, are written in a fantastic manner, full of all the emotions. It's a tough read, so beware if sexual assault is a trigger for you.

Told in first person dual pov, I was delighted, as this is my favorite writing style. The readers are able to get into the mind of both main characters, seeing things from both pov as they develop. Love it! And even better yet are the many moments of humor.

Love is a Walk in the Park is an enchanting, adorable romance by VL Locey and Stephanie Locey. I enjoy the atmospheric insights into NYC, especially the subway, which is spot on accurate. Overall, it's a sweet and tender romance.

USA Today Bestselling Author V.L. Locey – Penning LGBT hockey romance that skates into sinful pleasures.

V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, yoga, belly laughs, walking, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, Torchwood and Dr. Who, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.) She shares her life with her husband, her daughter, one dog, two cats, a pair of geese, far too many chickens, and two steers.

When not writing spicy romances, she enjoys spending her day with her menagerie in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania with a cup of fresh java in one hand and a steamy romance novel in the other.

Stephanie Locey loves video games, bad jokes, and kind people. She works full-time at a low-paying job and strives to not do that anymore. When not writing or working, she can be found playing fantasy RPGs, petting cats, and planning for adventures.
