I was totally in the mood for some sweet M/M contemporary romance and Not a Game delivered. It so delivered. This one is on the top of my Cardeno C. favorites list. If you need an angst-free, loving romance with some hot sex, Not a Game is perfect.

So this week is comfort week, where we each picked a book that to us says COMFORT...  Now I know what you are thinking “that is not a book but an author”, yes I know this but let me tell you something.  When I want comfort ANYTHING by Cardeno is a comfort read.

Rainbow Gold Reviews

I love C.C.'s writing. I fall in love with characters every time. This was no exception. Tanner was so naive and inexperienced but Steve was tender and loving with him. It was sweet and innocent, but spicy and hot at times, too. It's the perfect balance for a quick romance read.

Cardeno C. hits the spot yet again with this new addition to the Family series, raising the heat level by giving us three hot men and a tricky love story, which has heartbreak and forgiveness. This is a wonderfully written story that has you leaving the comfort of a gentle sappy love story and plundering your emotions as we are taken on a whirlwind rollercoaster of Charlie's love life. .. During this story you will be pulled in all directions, we feel the loss as Charlie loses his first love to distance and time, and then his devastation as he realizes his second love wasn't what he first thought. We feel his love for two men that always lingers in his heart, then we feel his confusion and breathtaking heartache when he sees his two ex loves together and in love. We follow along as both Scott and Adan try to get Charlie to let down his walls to let them in, to accept the love that they still both feel for him and to regain the trust that they both trampled. The characters are perfectly written with each one having their own unique personality, they bring out the best in each other, what one lacks another makes up for. This is a beautifully written story and a pure joy to read, the blending of a ménage relationship where they just slot together and become a whole was just perfect. ... And the sex oh boy, it's steamy enough to…

Ethan may be very young and naive, but he was willing to fight for what he wanted and Miguel would be his! Miguel lived a long time alone, never expecting to find happiness, so when Ethan arrived; he had to fight his need to keep Ethan safe versus his own desires. The love and acceptance between Ethan and Miguel was inspiring as they stood by each other to overcome their problems together.
