BLOG TOUR REVIEW - La Famiglia (A Men of Gilead Novel) by Deanna Wadsworth

Title: La Famiglia
Series: A Men of Gilead Novel
Author: Deanna Wadsworth
Genre: M/M Romance Novel (standalone)
Release Date: January 23, 2018

Forrester Giordano comes from a huge, nosy Italian family, and with their homophobic jokes and slurs, he’s decided to stay in the closet. He finds respite in his bookstore in the quaint village of Gilead—where he has a huge crush on one of his customers, Kyle Benson.

Kyle is determined to live his dreams, and though life isn’t easy being deaf, one by one he’s making them come true. He’s scored a great job practicing law, bought a cute bungalow where he can finally have a big flower garden, and he has a dog he loves, Jasper. Now he just needs one thing to complete his happiness: a family of his own to make up for the one he never had.

Forrester and Kyle’s relationship starts off hot and heavy, and neither man can deny the depth of their connection. When Forrester’s little brother gets mixed up with their heroin-dealing cousin and his mother falls ill, Forrester has a decision to make—maybe the hardest of his life. For the first time, he’s found a man worth coming out for.

Unfortunately nothing ever goes according to plan with la famiglia.

This was my first time reading Deanna Wadsworth and I loved every minute of this story! I fell in love with both Forrester and Kyle, and the potential romance between them at the start. The interactions between them at the start is so flippin' cute, with neither sure of the other's orientation, and I got a kick out of how Forrester brought up the subject without actually saying the words.

It's obvious there's chemistry between Forrester and Kyle, but they've each got their own issues to work through if they're going to engage in a committed relationship: Forrester with his family and the incident from Kyle's past that could possibly thwart any future happiness with Forrester.

I liked seeing how Kyle was there for Forrester when it came to dealing with two vastly different issues within the Giordano family, and how accepting Forrester's brothers were when the truth was finally revealed (well, almost all the brothers). I'm looking forward to reading more about the Men of Gilead.

Deanna Wadsworth might be a bestselling erotica author, but she leads a pretty vanilla life in Ohio with her wonderful husband and a couple adorable cocker spaniels. She has been spinning tales and penning stories since childhood, and her first erotic novella was published in 2010. She has served multiple board positions at her local RWA chapter and is the current President 2017 for Rainbow Romance Writers of America. When she isn’t writing books or brainstorming with friends, you can find her making people gorgeous in a beauty salon. She loves music and dancing, and can often be seen hanging out on the sandbar in the muddy Maumee River or chilling with her hubby and a cocktail in their basement bar. In between all that fun, Deanna cherishes the quiet times when she can let her wildly active imagination have the full run of her mind. Her fascination with people and the interworkings of their relationships have always inspired her to write romance with spice and love without boundaries.
