Tyler James is a pro at keeping his emotions bottled up. He uses sex as a tool, never associating it with love. When Cavendish sends one of their representatives to try and recruit him to be their poster boy, he's ready to tell them where they can shove their offer. But the dark-haired god in the Armani suit has him choking on his words.
Marcus Vinetti fights tooth and nail not to be sent to the boondocks to recruit some hick. He's surprised when he meets his cowboy target who has muscle upon muscle and gorgeous green eyes. Although he's usually good at masking his deviant desires, Tyler brings all his needs and wants to the surface.
Will Tyler be able to change his long-standing playboy ways, and will Marcus finally accept that he's in love with another man?
Ms. Wilder outdid herself in the third book in the Coming Out Series. She paired complete opposites and threw obstacles a-plenty in their paths on their road to a happy ever after. A very exciting read with a lot of ups and downs.
Tyler James is a self-proclaimed playboy. Commitment is not a necessity, he wants a good time; he can’t fathom why anyone would want to fall in love. He was raised in foster care and as soon as he could he ran away from the abusive family. In the past several years he’s made a name for himself in the rodeo circuit. Tyler claims he loves his vagabond life style but it’s the demons from his past that keep him on the move. The ghost from his past always seem to find him and being on the move had set well with him until he meets Marcus Vinetti.
Marcus Vinetti is a man trapped in the closet where his sexuality is concerned. He’s a smart, confident business man but stuck in the rut of living his life for everyone else and not himself. Marcus is a good guy just afraid of abandonment. But once he meets Tyler he thinks he’s found the man he could give everything up for. To say sparks fly doesn’t do it justice.
I loved how Tyler was very free with the way he talked and never hesitated to show affection to Marcus. His openness help Marcus realize that a person can’t change who they are and that just because he’s gay doesn’t make him any less a human being. These two men complement each other so well. Where Marcus lacked Tyler had strengths and vice versa.
There were two major obstacles they had to overcome within this story and the resolution to the second one took me by surprise. I knew something was bound to happen to help Tyler break away from the abusive family who raised him but the ending just shocked me to the core. The sacrifice Marcus made definitely made him a hero.
I wholeheartedly recommend Loving Tyler. It has a little bit of everything that makes it a page turner; drama, fear, and one erotic love scene after another. Tyler and Marcus grew together with every page turned and proved where there’s love anything is possible.
