Review

Reviewed By: Josh Dale

4/5

We back with Janice’s cute guys Joshua and Colin. If you have followed Colin and Joshua in Janice’s previous books, you will know that she puts them through hell and back. These guys have had tough times and its their deep love for each other that gets them through lives trials.

They need all the love of each other to get through their latest and maybe most threatening hurdle.

The book starts with everything on an even keel, but no sooner has Colin passed the bar exam and become an ADA, than things take a twist into the darker side of life (of course it does, this is a Janice Jarrell novel after all!)

Colin becomes involved as a liaison between the DA office and the Police force on a Serial killer/ rapist. This obviously causes Joshua anxiety. He thought Colin had left danger behind him after quitting the police force.

Then Poor Joshua must deal with an angry husband to a patient he is counselling, which causes Colin to become obsessed with Joshua’s safety, to the point where they fall out.

As the case develops, they slowly start piecing together a picture of the killer. But the case becomes personal when Joshua goes missing.

After Joshua is found and safely recovering from his injuries, they have a lot of issues to solve, is their love as strong as they think.

As with all of Janice’s books you get story full of ups and downs with a generous amount of love. The suspense in this story builds to a tense end.

I love Colin and Joshua, but I must admit sometimes Colin’s sometimes worries about Joshua’s safety, border on obsessive, which I am pleased that Janice picked up on in one of their heart-to-heart conversations, and Colin himself realises he cannot protect Joshua 24/7.

It was good to see old friends of the boy pop up too, David and Nate especially. (Janice, we need their story told too lol.)

An overall enjoyable read, with strong, well paces story and nicely developed characters. I wonder what the next book has instore for Colin and Joshua?

Biography

My name is Janice Jarrell. I am a retired grandmother who lives in Seattle, WA. I have two children and three grandsons. I’ve been writing gay romance since I was twelve years old, only back then it wasn’t called ‘gay romance’. In fact, it had no name at all. It was the fifty’s, and it was worth your life to admit to being gay, let alone confess to being a girl who constantly fantasized about relationships between gay men. Hell, I didn’t even know what a homosexual was. I lived on a farm out in the sticks in a tiny Michigan village and I’d never, to my knowledge, even heard the word. I just knew I loved the thought of boy-on-boy romance. I just knew that there was something hot going on between Tom Corbett and his Space Cadets and all those guys on ‘Combat’.
I wrote slash fanfiction for 30 years, writing over 337 stories, some as short as 100 words (a drabble), some as long as a series which was over 119,012 words. I enjoy writing my stories. I enjoyed the feedback I received from my readers. It was a creative release I’d been searching for my entire life and I blessed the Internet for leading me to this artistic oasis for my spirit.

Love’s Magic was my very first step into writing my own characters. I will always be grateful to the slash fanfiction community for nurturing the budding author until she was ready to blossom into a fully realized novelist. It’s been an amazing thing to watch the gay community’s growth over these past twenty years. My own journey has echoed theirs in many ways, and I’m grateful to all those gay activists who fought to give the gay community the rights and privileges they always deserved. Love’s Trials, Love’s Glory, and Love’s Lawyer were the second and third, and forth books in the series and all four books are available in audio format on Audible.

I’m also grateful to the gay romance community, readers, authors, publishers and promoters, who are making these, my retirement years, the most creative ones of my life. When I'm not writing, I'm traveling, walking, hiking, knitting, crocheting, and weaving.

I'm very excited about the upcoming release of my fifth contemporary gay romance novel, Relevant Law. Those of you who fell in love with Joshua and Colin in the four previous books in this series are in for a bit of angst in this latest episode. A dark and sinister cloud hangs over the University of Virginia after three students are abducted, raped and beaten. Colin works with both campus and city police to catch the perpetrator, but his hard work and effort proves futile when Joshua turns up missing!

Despite their struggles there are still many passionate, loving moments and the friends they treasure will be there to help them find their way.
