Five years ago, Benji Green lost his beloved father Big Eddie when his truck crashed into a river. Everyone called it an accident, but Benji knows it was more. Even years later, he's buried in his grief, throwing himself into managing Big Eddie's convenience store in the small-town of Roseland, Oregon. Surrounded by his mother and three aunts, he lives day to day, struggling to keep his head above water. But Roseland is no ordinary place.

Loved it. A totally unique story with steamy love and thrilling intrigue and tense, life threatening antics. Klune's love of daddies and bears continues in these stories, a minority genre that is represented well.

Tyler can't inherit unless he gets married... and when Glen proposes, hijinks ensue. Follow the guys on their world-spanning adventure as they defeat mobsters, an evil step-mother, a rakish brother-in-law and pirates. No, really - pirates! Plus, there's an underground super-base. And hockey. Come for the romance, stay for the hockey.

Glen & Tyler's Happy Endings

Any additional comments?

Tyler's character was performed more feminine than the text predicted, but I liked how Greg sounded like such a boneheaded jock. The performance was pretty good; the accents were the strongest feature, while the unnatural sounding dialogue was detracting. It sounded as though there were too many commas in the dialogue.

The story was at time saccharine and completely unbelievable. I don't know where to start; the snap marriage, constantly explaining financial wealth, the stock investor's meeting, the hockey showdown, Tim... The story resembles a daydream at times where the main characters get everything they have ever wanted, weakening the story arc containing the conflict. The story's strong features included rich explanation of surroundings, seemingly viable business and technical discussions and action sequences explained in a realistic manner.

G&T is the perfect bedtime story for adults looking to unwind with a story that is none-too-serious. I'm buying part two right away.
