Overview

Sex in Seattle: Book Three

Everyone admires Michael Lamont for being a nurse, but his part-time work as a gay sex surrogate not only raises eyebrows, it's cost him relationships. Michael is small, beautiful, and dedicated to working with people who need him. But what he really wants is a love of his own. He spends most of his time reading science fiction, especially books written by his favorite author and long-time crush, the mysteriously reclusive J.C. Guise.

James Gallway’s life is slowly but inexorably sliding downhill. He wrote a best-selling science fiction novel at the tender age of eighteen, while bedridden with complications of polio. But by twenty-eight, he's lost his inspiration and his will to live. His sales from his J.C. Guise books have been in decline for years. Wheelchair bound, James has isolated himself, convinced he is unlovable. When he is forced to do a book signing and meets Michael Lamont, he can’t believe a guy who looks like Michael could be interested in a man like him.

Michael and James are made for each other. But they must let go of stubbornness to see that life finds a way and love has no limitations.

    The first thing I must say is that I wish I hadn’t given the Enlightenment of Daniel, #2 in Ms. Easton’s Sex in Seattle Series, 5 stars –not because it didn’t deserve it, because EoD definitely deserved 5 stars. It was a fantastic book. No, the reason is because The Mating of Michael was even SO MUCH BETTER! Wow. Simply. Wow. (I kind of feel like Michael reading one of James’ books.)
    Ms. Easton has outdone herself. This dual point of view story takes us through the romance of Michael Lamont, nurse and sexual surrogate and James Galloway, sci-fi author, recluse, and man with severe trust issues. She has let us into the heads of these two so that while each side is in the right and has been wronged, as a reader, I just felt for both of them. James, a polio victim from the time he was 6 years old, with no use of his legs. Michael, a man with enough heart for 10 people who just wants to help out.
    But it wasn’t just the lead characters that we got to know. No, I also fell in love with Marnie, one of Michael’s nursing patients: in her eighties, brash as all get out, and such a wonderfully painted character. Tommy, the severely burned 21-year old and his mother. Even both of Michael’s and James’ mothers. Man, I even adored James’ agent.
    But as if this amazingly wonderful love story wasn’t more than good enough for 5 stars, the author gave us a taste of something else. A sci-fi romance that James writes toward the end of the novel, based on the love that emanates from Michael. She gives the readers bits and pieces all the way along to a sci-fi/romance book titled Sentimental Cyanide. All I can say is: Ms. Easton, your fans need that book! And the sequel, too. *wink*
    As I said, this story deserves the highest rating we can give it, so 5-stars will have to do.
    As a strange aside, there is one scene I would have LOVED to read. It wasn’t needed for the story and may have not even been written. But the scene where Marnie comes to James’ home and effectively dresses him down for the pain Michael is in – oh, I would love to read that scene. She’s so forthright and in your face. But, that’s just a pie wish. So not needed when all’s said and done.
    The Mating of Michael – an intensely wonderful, fantastic, mind-boggling, stick-your-butt-to-the-seat-because-you-can’t-stop-reading novel.

    This is the third one in the series, Sex in Seattle. Michael’s story
    We met Michael in the first book, The Trouble with Tony. And yes we have cross over and yes I just got done reading that book, I feel like you could read this one, The Mating of Michael as standalone and be ok. 
    Michael is a nurse, he has a day job as a home health care provider and on occasion he provides a unique service, Sex Surrogacy. Even though he loves this job, it has cost him a few relationships. Guys just don’t understand that’s its clinical not sexual. While Michael was at a surrogacy patient’s home, they gave him a clipping to an Author signing he and his mother thought he may be interested in. James has been hiding behind his authors pen name and disorder for over ten years, and finally he’s publishers and his PR friend have told him, for him to continue he must start doing events. Since he lives in the Seattle area, he’s heading to a local book store for his first public appearance.   Michael is over the moon that he is finally meeting the man he has secretly had a crush on for ten years. But the first meeting doesn’t go so well, nor does the next. Finally Michael breaks down James defenses and they start dating. But on big secret let out at the wrong time will have this come crashing down.
    Where’s as book one was lighthearted and fun this one was very much dramatic, dark and deeper. I liked the fact that the author didn’t sugar coat or gloss over the harder details of how difficult life can be, wheel chair bound. The mental anguish that James goes through just having to deal with going to someone’s house for the first time, Michael having to not revert to his nurses training and just be a boyfriend. Makes you think. I liked the sub story of the continuing cases for the surrogacy clinic.

    Touching story

    This was a sweet love story with just enough heartbreak to make it feel real.

    I quite enjoyed this book. The relationship between Michael and James was slow but very moving.
    Also loved the relationship between Michael and his patients.
    I'm looking forward to reading the rest of the series.
