This was a great story of m/m romance with difficult issues arising. While some things were a little far-fetched or slighty rushed, overall it was good. The main character really struggled with his sexual identity. There was a little back story to try to explain his frustration, but then the plot quickly moved on to focus on the developing feelings and explosive passion between the main characters.

Not That Type of Guy is the sweet and sexy story of Aiden and Trace.
Aiden is a CIA agent with a tough job. He keeps people at a distance,
especially woman, thinking he really can't get into a serious
relationship. After an unexpected sexual encounter with another man,
Aiden has to face the reality of his feelings and what he's been hiding
from himself. Aiden's character was written in a way that we were able
to feel his conflicts and emotions. He had had it drilled into him his
whole life that being gay was wrong and bad, and he was terrified of his
own true feelings. He had kept them hidden for so long that he was a
wreck when those feelings finally made their way out. Trace is a
doctor who changes Aiden's whole way of thinking and, ultimately, his
life. I liked Trace. He knew what he wanted and wasn't afraid to go
after it. The attraction between Aiden and Trace is intense, and they
were fun together. The story was good and fun to read. Through the
story both Aiden and Trace learn life lessons. Aiden, that you can't
fight who you are, and Trace, that things aren't always black and white.
One thing that bothered me throughout the story was the way too many
emotions. Aiden is supposed to be this tough CIA agent, being put in
life and death situations constantly, yet he's an emotional wreck. I get
that he is going through a conflict, but I would have liked him more if
he were more firm and less teary. I also am not a fan of instant love.
Instant attraction I get, but love really needs more time to develop.
Overall this was a fun, unique story, and thank you to the author for
providing me with a copy to review!

I love a book where I can feel like I am the characters while reading. Not just one but all of them, good bad or ugly. Sara accomplishes that very well in all her books. I was not disappointed with this. It was above my expectations.. I could feel Aiden’s conflict of his emotions. I could feel his needs, his fears of having to come to the realization that he was gay. I ached with him. I cried for and with him. When he melt Trace, I felt his want his need his desires, his hunger, his confusion. I wanted to grab him by the shoulders and shake him and say- get over it. Quit wasting time and hurting these women you jerk. Go meet Trace!!Thank goodness he listened, or we wouldn’t have a good MM story. We got a great one. Lots of mystery suspense and romance. What more could you want? So I will tell you a little about the story.
Aiden Jackson has a secret. Actually two. His job and his sexuality. He works for the government as an assassin and he is gay. But he don’t even know it yet.
Trace Wlliams is a Dr. He is gay and he isn’t hiding but he isn’t actually advertising either. His Co-workers don’t know. He has a lover but it’s just a physical thing. Someone to satisfy his physical needs. He wants someone to satisfy his emotional needs as well. He sees Aiden in a restaurant with a woman and notices him checking him out. He actually is so attracted to him and can just feel he is hiding his sexuality that he actually confronts him in the restroom. Neither man can seem to get over this initial meeting.
So. Do they actually get together? Does Aiden finally embrace who he is? Where does his job come into play? Well you will have to read the book!! You won’t be sorry!! I promise!
want to see the blurb and link *muses point to post below!*
