Abstract LoveAbstract Love by Sara Dobie Bauer

4.5 stars

Abstract Love is a contemporary male romance set in Cleveland, Ohio.

Donovan Cooper’s wife has left him for his best friend; he feels cheated, hurt and angry. His emotional buttons are pushed further when a young hot-shot graphic designer sits in Donovan’s meeting doodling instead of attentively listening.

Sam Shelby is a popular employee and gifted creator, but he deliberately irritates Donovan to the point where sparks almost fly between them. However, Sam also reminds Donovan of his younger self, where he had dreams of being an artist and this exasperates Donovan.

Their fiery office attitude spills over into their personal life as Donovan becomes confused by the attraction he feels for Sam; he’s never been attracted to another man before. Sam is openly bi- sexual and lives a rather outrageous lifestyle, but he makes Donovan question what he has become and…

Emma is looking forward to playing Juliet in the local amateur dramatic society production when Jake Murray arrives back in South Quay for the summer, ten years after he left to go to drama school, and thoroughly unsettles her. Now a household name, thanks to his role in a successful TV
series, he’s taking the summer off, away from the media spotlight, and catching up with his old school friends.

4 stars

The Perfect First is a new adult college sports romance. Persephone (Seph) Alexander is a maths genius, but she has spent her life being home-schooled and has no friends and is socially inept.

The author takes a studious introvert…
