Something About Him series by A.D. Ellis

Bryan & Jase, The Beginning (Something About Him 0.5)

AUTHOR’S BLURB: A short story to introduce readers to Bryan Keating and Jase Rafferty– their full-length story is now available on all platforms.

Blurb from full-length (this short story takes place right before the full-length novel begins)–

Jase Rafferty grew up hiding his sexual curiosities—until he meets Bryan Keating. Bryan’s sexuality is no secret, and being deployed overseas together allows the two men to forge a solid friendship. The sexual attraction is undeniable, but after one lust-filled week, they must go their separate ways.
A year later, a chance meeting gives them one more weekend together, even though they know Jase can’t risk his military career or his family obligations to be with Bryan.
Several years pass before Jase finally accepts the desperate longing in his heart and body. But when fear and hatred threaten to tear them apart, Jase must make a tough decision, one that he isn’t sure he and Bryan can overcome. Together, they must choose to weather the storm or say goodbye forever.

**This is a male/male romance meant for ages 18+ due to adult language and adult situations.**

MY REVIEW: It’s short. It’s bittersweet. It’s a real tease. It really makes you need to read what happens with the guys, though it’s not a cliffhanger ending.

Bryan & Jase (Something About Him #1)

AUTHOR’S BLURB: Jase Rafferty grew up hiding his sexual curiosities—until he meets Bryan Keating. Bryan’s sexuality is no secret, and being deployed overseas together allows the two men to forge a solid friendship. The sexual attraction is undeniable, but after one lust-filled week, they must go their separate ways.

**This is a male/male romance meant for ages 18+ due to adult language and adult situations.**

MY REVIEW: The entire book, practically, is anticipation and agony. Which is TORTURE. In some of the best and worst possible ways. Yes, it’s a bit predictable. But not in a bad way. More in a comfortable way.

Brody & Nick (Something About Him #2)

AUTHOR’S BLURB: Army specialist Brody King is a successful and respected soldier. With only a year left in his commitment, he devises a plan to help him save money—a plan that requires him to marry.
Nick Ferguson is working toward college graduation and his community services management career. With his lease about to expire, he’s more than willing to take Brody up on his crazy marriage scheme.
A solution that seems quick and easy turns into more than either of them ever anticipated. When Brody’s fears and insecurities surface, he makes a decision that may push Nick away forever.
Can a fake marriage built upon friendship withstand the obstacles of an uncertain future?
**This is a male/male romance for ages 18+ due to adult language and themes.**

MY REVIEW: The writing was as good as expected. The plotline old and overused.. And one of the main characters annoying. Yet everyone made a point of saying he’s “brilliant.” There was no proof of brilliance. Average intelligence only.
But having any kind of emotional response is what reading’s for, right? Mission accomplished. Maybe later in the series we’ll see why that book was written?

Barrett & Ivan (Something About Him #3)

AUTHOR’S BLURB: Despite the curve balls thrown at him throughout his childhood, Barrett Kenner is now a successful musician. The only thing missing is romance.

Ivan Romanov killed a man to save his sister’s life. Although he has served his time, Ivan’s past left him with baggage far heavier than the meager belongings he carries out of prison.

Barrett clings to the memory of a fervent kiss, a kiss that Ivan tries to pretend meant nothing. When the two men finally accept their feelings for each other, life should be smooth sailing, but the past still lurks in the shadows.

Can Barrett and Ivan protect their love and their lives, or will dangers from long ago be more than they can withstand?

**This is a male/male romance meant for ages 18+ due to adult language and adult situations.**

MY REVIEW: I love, love, loved this book. The various forms of devotion and acceptance and love and loyalty…ker-thlump goes my heart!
Was the story rather predictable, as most of the stories in this series are? Yes. But that doesn’t detract from the writing or the enjoyment from them, really. I know it sounds wrong and counterintuitive, but I promise I’m telling the truth.

Braeton & Drew (Something About Him #4)

AUTHOR’S BLURB: Braeton Reed left his small-minded hometown and disapproving family long ago and never looked back.
Andrew Hines has nothing against a solid, loving relationship; he just isn’t sure he’ll ever find one.
Braeton has been told he’s a bit of a diva. Andrew has heard he’s not flashy enough. Can their differences pull them together? Or will these polar opposites allow society to dictate who they are and who they love?
**This is a male/male romance meant for ages 18+ due to adult language and adult situations.**

MY REVIEW: I loved this! It’s sometimes so nice and refreshing to read a story where the couple doesn’t split up and you’re supposed to question whether they’ll get back together (though of course you know they will). Yes, B was stupid at first. But it was easily taken in stride and just became a story for the couple later, rather than an obstacle.
Honestly, B seems way more flamboyant than he did when he was introduced in Bryan and Jase’s story, but that’s probably the closest I can come to a complaint. Which is nice.

Ryker & Gavin (Something About Him #5)

AUTHOR’S BLURB: Gavin Mitchel has resigned himself to a lonely and unfulfilling love life, but his first meeting with Ryker Hudson is as steamy as it is random, which is precisely the way Ryker likes it. Their second meeting, while equally random, is beyond awkward.
Although a fourteen-year age difference stands in their way, a much larger obstacle is also blocking their path. Together, Ryker and Gavin must find the strength to overcome the roadblocks or bid farewell to their happily ever after.
**This is a male/male romance meant for ages 18+ due to adult language and situations.**

MY REVIEW: Makes you feel real hurt and confusion and indignation in all the right spots, without getting too riled up. I suspect it’s even better if you’ve read the Torey Hope series or at least the Sawyer one.

Eli & Gage: Something About Him

AUTHOR’S BLURB: Eli & Gage: Something About Him
*A Valentine’s Day Short Story*
Gage hates Valentine’s Day. Eli isn’t crazy about the day either. An unplanned date between two strangers may be just the thing to change their minds about the day of love.
**A male/male romance short story meant for ages 18+.**

MY REVIEW: A sexy, charming tease. The beginning of a story that leaves you fairly certain the guys are HFN, though you’d love to read more about them.
