Confession: I LOVE Roni Loren's Loving On the Edge series. Like, if I could marry it; I would. I occasionally read male/male romances and they're hit or miss for me. This one was a hit. Like, slap-your-ass-and-leave-a-palm-print-for-days hit.
It had me laughing, ugly crying, heart aching, full on emotional wreck once I swiped to the last page on my e-reader. And I tried swiping and swiping just hoping for more. Too bad for me, nothing there. *sigh*
Hunter and Devon were friends (the best of friends) in college, roommates at their frat, and eventual lovers behind closed doors. Devon is totally okay with who he is but Hunter is from a very conservative family and this leads to their breakup. The son of congressman with a guy? That would look really bad. Like most m/m stories I've read, this is the cause. One guy is ready to declare it to the world, one isn't and must make a choice.
The side story of Hunter getting married to a beauty queen had me a little pissed. I DID NOT like her. She was the type of girl who tests her man's loyalty through manipulation. I've known girls like this and it never ends well for anyone. The best thing she did for Hunter was suggest he ask Devon to be his best man at their wedding. I was 110% behind that (no pun intended, okay maybe a little) because Hunter and Devon's feelings haven't really cooled. I may or may not have been chanting 'kiss, kiss, kiss' while reading scenes where they interacted with each other.
If you're looking for a quick weekend read or looking into getting your feet wet in the male/male genre, try YOURS ALL ALONG. Fans of second chance romances or friends-to-lovers will also enjoy this story.
Now, when can I get my next Roni Loren fix?

The new Loving on the Edge romance from the New York Times bestselling author of Nothing Between Us turns on the heat between two men who wonder how much they’re willing to risk in the name of love.
Four years after an accident tore their friendship apart, Hunter and Devon are living separate lives. Hunter is now the all-America hero—a congressman’s son and a pro pitcher in Houston preparing to marry his beauty-queen girlfriend. Devon is in Dallas running a new restaurant.
But when Hunter unexpectedly shows up in Devon’s bar, Devon can’t turn him away. Damn it if the man isn’t still gorgeous. But engaged? Hell no. All he’s doing for Devon is bringing back memories of their college-roommate days, and the night their relationship went too far. Turns out Hunter has never forgotten it either.
Now Devon can’t help but be drawn in all over again by the only guy who’s ever gotten close enough to break his heart. Maybe one more night together would be enough for both of them to finally move on. Or maybe one night will change everything…
