The Superior Jewel by Hurri Cosmo
Ryan’s former girlfriend, Cheyenne, is used to getting what she wants. Right now, she wants Jansen Branwyth. The only problem is so does Ryan. For the first time in his life, he’s strongly attracted to a man. Okay, maybe it’s not the first time but that first time didn’t count because it was two months ago and it was the same man. Except with the very beautiful Cheyenne going after Jansen and thinking she’ll have no problem getting him, Ryan is sure he has absolutely no chance. Jansen, however, doesn’t care one bit what either one of them think. He knows exactly who he wants and knows precisely how he will go about getting his man.
This is a new to me author. I thought this was a sweet read. I really liked that the author is upfront on her writing. In her bio it says, “I am not big on angst. I believe we get enough of that in real life … I’m okay with the fact I will probably never write anything ‘important’.” It is really refreshing that the author isn’t expecting everyone to really agree on her writing and that there will most likely be those that don’t like her writing. I may be a little biased in that I love sweet reads and dislike to crying my way through all my books.
Now the writing was good. There isn’t sweeping descriptions involved but it is simple and fun. I enjoyed the relaxing read that the author gave. The plot was simple and obvious but it was fun with the way the author described the characters. They were interesting, if simple.
My biggest disappointment with this book is in length and the two main characters’ length of time with each other. I would really love if the author wrote a follow up to this book. It would be interesting to see how the two will mesh their lives and how Ryan deals with being in a gay relationship. I really think there is a lot more to these two men than was given in this book.
