A Love in Laguna Novel
Merle Justice wants to reach for the stars, but it’s tough to get respect when playing a teenybopper vampire on TV. Then he meets a famous director anxious to give him all he thinks he wants—and maybe a bit more. Everything’s looking up until a life-threatening encounter with some homophobes on Main Beach puts Merle face-to-face with a Sasquatch-sized hero in a pink puffer coat.
Tom Henry defies description. As unsophisticated and simple as an angel, he walks through life content with who he is and asking for very little except to care for his sister, Lily, and the dogs he loves. Then he meets Merle, the embodiment of dreams he barely knows he has. Merle knows the people who hold his future in their hands might love Tom—but they’ll never understand Merle and Tom together. Tom knows it too. With lives this far apart, who’s really the fool of Main Beach?

With the way I'm feeling right now, if Tara Lain was a Deity, I would be setting up a shrine to worship her, because this is undoubtedly the best book (character wise) that she ever written. I was consumed with the need to devour it - and I did. I love all her books, but this one was special. And it's all down to Tom Henry because he is special, very special. Tom is the most alluring, unique and amazing character EVER. He is the one that should win that exclusive or should that read, elusive, Oscar? His supporting cast of Merle Justice and all the "gang" of Laguna Beach should also be nominated for Best Supporting Roles, but I have to say, that it's Tom that steals the show and my encore for him is still going on. You have to read it yourselves to see why I'm Fangirling so hard here, but be prepared to fall in love, because you will. Can this be read as a standalone? I believe so. The author did a magnificent job of filing in the background on the friends and residents of Laguna but as always, to get full benefit, starting with Book 1 of a Series, is always recommended. LOVED IT. LOVED IT. LOVED IT. Five Nobody's Fool Stars from me. P.s. Pink Puffer Jackets will never look the same again........
m/m At long last another addition to the Love in Laguna series. In this installment we have the TV heartthrob and the contractor. It took me a bit took get into this story not because the writing wasn’t good it is. I was worried about my reaction to the Electrician Tom Henry. I like everyone else in the story was a little bit wary about the rising star, Merle, and his relationship with the sweet and guileless Tom. But through the authors skilled pen we realize that there is no better place for these two guys than in each other’s arms. I ended up loving this story.
