(Seasons of Love 04)
Tony Quinn has a knack for figuring people out. He likes labels, likes to be able to put everyone and everything in tidy boxes. As a theater director, it allows him to run a production without too much drama. But when he meets Gentry—“call me Gee”—in a bar one night, he discovers that some people aren’t so easily defined.
Gee Parnell is unlike anyone Tony has ever met before. He refuses to conform—to Tony’s expectations, or to society’s gender roles. He’s sexy and flirtatious, unapologetic and unashamed. And Tony isn’t sure he’s okay with that. So he breaks things off and escapes back into his well-ordered life.
But then an attack leaves Gee bloody and bruised, and Tony realizes that he isn’t ready to lose him. Not only is the passion between them off the charts, but Gee shows him a different way of understanding people. However, an exciting new job opportunity means that Tony has to decide between hiding his sexuality and his relationship with Gee, and his newfound appreciation for the color and beauty Gee brings to his life.

(Seasons of Love 03)
Sara Walker’s life is going nowhere fast: she has a job she enjoys but doesn’t love, friends who are too busy to hang out with her, and no boyfriend in sight. Then a phone call on a lonely Friday night changes everything, and suddenly she’s spending her weekends with Laura. Newly single and openly bisexual, Laura makes Sara think decidedly not-straight thoughts.
Laura Murphy, with her red hair, freckles, and killer curves, is any guy’s wet dream. But Laura’s done with guys for now, and it’s Sara who can’t stop dreaming about her. When Sara finally gives in to the curiosity, Laura blows her mind and pushes her further than she’s ever gone before.
But Laura makes it very clear that this is only a rebound fling, and she’s still planning to move to California. She’s more than happy to tie Sara up, but she’s not ready to be tied down. If Sara wants to keep her, she’s going to have to work hard to convince Laura that New York is worth staying for . . . and so is she.

(Seasons of Love 02)
Abigail is content with her quiet life as a librarian. But when she’s invited to a high-profile charity auction, she finds herself dancing with one of the most beautiful women she’s ever met. Abby’s sure she’ll never see her again, but then Gabrielle calls and asks her on a date. And soon after, another.
Supermodel Gabrielle Levesque has a reputation as the Ice Queen—cold and untouchable—except she warms up whenever she’s with Abby. Only Abby isn’t interested in the heat between them; she’s asexual, and she’s worried that admitting as much to Gabrielle might spell the end of their blooming romance.
They’re two different women from two very different worlds, but Abby knows she can love Gabrielle. Her passion for books, travel, and theater prove there’s more to the Ice Queen than meets the eye. But they’ll have to overcome Abby’s fears—and Gabrielle’s own threatening secrets—in order to find their way to love.

(Seasons of Love 01)
Noah Landers wakes up one day with a headache and no memory of where—or who—he is. Jason, the man taking care of him, tries to fill in some of the blanks: they’re in a cabin in Colorado on vacation, and Noah slipped on ice and hit his head. But even with amnesia, Noah knows Jason is leaving out something important.
Jason O’Reilly is sexy as hell, treats Noah like he’s precious, and seems determined to make this the romantic getaway they’d apparently dreamed of together. But Noah’s more concerned that he’s trapped alone with Jason in the middle of a blizzard while his slowly returning memories bring hints of secrets and betrayal.
Noah’s not sure what’s the truth and what’s a lie. But as he learns who he is—and who Jason is to him—he’s forced to reevaluate everything he believes about himself, about loyalty . . . and about love.

(Seasons of Love 04)
For over ten years, Wyatt Dolan defined himself as the lover of Howard Wallace. Howard made sure Wyatt’s self-worth depended on that role. So when Howard dumps him, he is lost at sea in a storm without a rudder. If it wasn’t for his supportive friends, he doesn’t know what he’d do. Finally, after a series of disasters, he escapes to Camp Sanctuary—a sacred place to him—where he can be alone, try to put his past behind him, and find a new direction for his life.
Kevin Owens is a lonely man. He is very intelligent—several apps he created have gone on to make him a comfortable living—but he is also quite shy and is uncomfortable making conversation. The death of his dear friend and former lover after a long illness leaves him grieving, confused, and adrift. Then a dream guides him to Camp Sanctuary, only to find that the one cabin with a wood-burning stove has already been reserved. And worse, by a man he’s had a secret crush on for years—Wyatt Dolan.
When a snowstorm knocks out power at the Camp, Wyatt and Kevin must share the same cabin to stay warm, and very soon, magickal things begin to happen.
Title: Autumn Changes Series: Seasons of Love 03 Author: B.G. Thomas Genre: Contemporary/Humor/Interracial Length: Novel (266 pages) Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (April 24th 2015) Heat Level: Low Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts Blurb: Asher Eisenberg is a brilliant actor, destined for fame and fortune. But a traumatic incident in his past has caused him to reject his Jewish heritage and hide from everyone behind walls of arrogance and selfishness, and he blurs his loneliness with a lot of sex and alcohol. When he meets Peniamina Faamausili, however, he strangely can’t stop thinking about the young man.
Peni is struggling with his sexuality, the Mormonism he was raised in, and the Samoan heritage that calls to him. He longs to receive the pe’a—the traditional Samoan tattoos– and learn more of his people’s ways. He has no interest in a man like Asher, who appears to use men and put them aside and whose drinking can’t help but remind him of the drunk driver who killed his father. But he can’t deny his attraction to Asher and finally agrees to a date if Asher can go thirty days without a drink.
Asher is about to go on a journey that will awaken him to his friends, his past, his future, and even to love. But that awakening could well demand the sacrifice of the dream he holds most dear.
Review: As the seasons change bringing about changes in the lives of each of the Fabulous Four. Asher is feeling a bit left out or perhaps jealous though he is never excluded in the group. Asher questions his feelings since he has never wanted a relationship. He knows he could have had one at any time he wanted it and he knew Sloan had been in love with him at one time as well, yet now
Sloan has Max. After nearly losing a role he really wanted he finds out how work acquaintances feel about him. The he meets Sloan and Wyatt’s beautiful friend Peni and once again is put in his place. On a thirty-day challenge not to drink, to take Peni to dinner, he finds out one more thing about his life (well, perhaps two, if you count his growing feelings for Peni.)
Peni has recently come out. He is very naïve and learned his sexuality in a harsh way. He doesn’t see what Sloan has ever seen in the full-of-himself Asher other than his looks. Peni falls in easily with the friends, but he longs to have what Sloan and Max and Scott and Cedar have.
Peni longs for THE ONE and a real relationship, but struggles with how it will fit in with his strictly Mormon and Samoan family.
Oh man! This is one heartfelt story of growth, change, acceptance, and love! I was so happy to see the other characters in this story as well, especially Sloan and Wyatt though their parts are rather minor they add just the right touch to the story.
I was really glad to see Asher’s story and it was very different from I had expected. I also loved getting a look at Peni and a bit of Samoan history as well. I will admit the story is a little predictable as far as romance is concerned but done so well…who cares…and I am glad it was!
The story is so well-written and I loved how B.G makes a power punch by repeating one or two words. First, in the context, than in italics as a though the in an exclamation. I could really feel these characters, thoughts, see their actions. Most of the sex is off the page which works very well for this story.
I love the covers for these books!
If you are looking for a feel-good story, one without a lot of heavy angst, a strong cast of characters, a fast-paced story line that reels you in and won’t let you go until the end with very little actual on-page sex…this is for you!
