Product Description

Product Description

Small-town security guard, Gill Martin, has lived in Mystique Pointe his entire life. His dating prospects are non-existent and he doesn't particularly like his job, but at least it's better than unemployment. Besides, he hasn't got any better ideas.

Big-city artist, Tommy Hearne, knows exactly what he wants out of life: a successful art career and a successful relationship. He also knows that living in Liberty City is his best chance for pursuing both. Unfortunately, for him, neither of these pursuits seem to be panning out quite to his liking.

When Tommy and his misfit band of friends roll into town for the Laissez Faire, Mystique Pointe's annual music & art festival, worlds definitely collide. A fiery tryst sparks more than just a lust connection, but what happens when the weekend is over?

Laissez Faire series by L.D. Blakely starts off with Opportunity Knocks. I loved the sweet feel to this light hearted romance. I smiled a ton while reading this book. Tommy Hearne is an artist. He is a free spirit with a romantic soul. He is openly gay but has not found his one yet. He is going to Laissez Faire like he has for the past five years to sell his goods. It is an artist and music festival. Always is fun. This year though something special will happen.
Gill his father used to work at he Mystic Pointe police department. His mother died a few years back and he has been helping his father out since. He is gay but has not had the guts yet to tell his dad. He doesn’t want to break his heart. But when he meets Tommy at the faire, he is sure of one thing. Tommy is the one for him. Gill is a big man with muscles and tattoos but he has a very innocent heart. Good thing Tommy is the one romantic enough to keep it safe.
Tommy can be fearless where Gill was the shier one. I liked this combination made for many funny situations. There is lots of hot man love too. I would love to see more of this series. I would love to see Michael Tommy’s roommate find a love next. I think he could use one. When you want a hot steamy but light hearted read that will make you believe in true love, this is the book to pick up.

For original review, please visit the Prism Book Alliance® blog online.

I read opportunity knocks directly after reading only the second book I have given 1* here on Prism Book Alliance®. That other book came from the same publisher, so, needless to say, my bar was set pretty low for this one. Luckily, I was pleasantly surprised by Opportunity Knocks by LD Blakeley. I believe this is my introduction to this author.

Tommy and Gill are cute together. Are they perfect? No. Is the book perfect? No. Does it suffer from the same lack of editing from which other books from this publisher suffer? Absolutely. However, Tommy and Gill are lovable. You want Tommy and Gill to make it work.

They start as a bar hookup while Tommy and his artist roommates are in Gill’s small town for work. Gill is deeply closeted, and a virgin. While the premise is a bit out there, from the first time Gill and Tommy lock eyes, you can feel the tension. As long as you focus on their connection, you will likely enjoy this story.

There was plenty of setup for the rest of this series included in this story. I need Matt’s story, of course. But there are a number of other characters who need some loving. I am interested to see how the series plays out.

This was a sweet, sexy read. I enjoyed it very much. I loved the main characters, Gill and Tommy, and watching them fall for each other was a pleasure.

I wouldn't call their relationship insta-love, but they did have a strong pull from the moment they laid eyes on each other. Their chemistry was awesome, whether they're just talking or making out. Yes, I said "making out". They didn't really dive into sex, but when they finally did...whew! It was smoking hot. Gill was nervous, and Tommy was gentle, and it was a beautiful thing to watch.

There were some background characters that played a very important role in the story. I am hoping that they'll be making appearances in a few sequels.

There were a few obstacles along the way to their HEA, but it wasn't so much that I wanted to skip ahead to the end. It held my interest completely. In fact, I stayed up until the early morning hours reading it.

I highly recommend this book. It was a lot of fun to read.

I love to read M/M books more than the average person because the communication seems to be better in this genre.

I enjoyed Gill’s character because he fit his description, loving, hard-working, and a little naive. Tommy is your cute city boy with a flair for the dramatic and amazing art talent.

When they meet their attraction is instant and while Tommy is ready to jump him in the middle of the faire he knows that Gill is from a small town that may frown on that.

Gill knows he’s gay but is only out to his BFF Kat and fear rejection from his dad; I love Gill for so many reasons. There is no malice in this book, no unforgivable drama or even extreme conflict with the main characters. This is a genuine love story that just needs to have logistics “figured out”.

I give this book 3 diamonds and hope that Michael gets his HEA.

When big city artist Tommy and his friends arrive at Mystic Pointe for a weekend arts fair, Tommy is stunned by the gorgeous security guard Gill. Gill isn't quite out of the closet due to circumstances, but from the moment he sees Tommy he knows this gorgeous hipster artist is something special. But will they be able to handle the distance, both physical and emotional, between Mystic Pointe and Liberty City?

This is a hot, sweet story, heartwarming as well as pyroclastically sexy. Best of all, it's the first book in a series. I truly enjoyed OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS and will be looking forward to more adventures from Tommy and Gill's crowd.
