Knave of Broken Hearts (Love In Laguna) by: Tara Lain
reviewed by: Becky
Jim Carney has a full time job—running from himself. Since he walked out on his wealthy family at sixteen because he’d wrecked his best friend’s life over some yaoi graphic novels, Jim has lived a macho, blue-collar existence of too much booze and too little responsibility. Then Billy Ballew, the man Jim most admires, gives Jim a chance to come through as his construction supervisor. For once, Jim is determined to make someone proud. Then Jim goes in for a physical for his new job, and his yaoi dream comes to life in the form of cardiologist Ken Tanaka. Jim discovers he has two heart problems—a wonky mitral valve and a serious attraction to his doctor. But Ken is a major player, and Jim might be just a notch on the doc's stethoscope. To Ken, Jim is unforgettable—but the living embodiment of his traditional family’s worst nightmares. How come the minute Jim decides to be responsible, he finds himself taking care of his kid brother, getting a proposal from a wealthy woman, making a deal with the devil, and winding up in the hospital—when all he really wants is the Knave of Broken Hearts?
I loved book one in the Love In Laguna Series, and I was wondering if this one would live up to the high expectations I set for this series, and I was so excited to see that it did and then some!!!!
Poor Jim, he has been not only living in the closet, but denying who he was to even himself mostly except for a secret under his bed that includes the hero of his dreams, boy is he surprised when he meets a real life replica of his yaoi dreams!
Dr. Ken Tanaka is very happy going from man to man, and not settling down, especially since he knows that his very traditional family would not be pleased if he brought anyone other than the perfect partner home, and his mother keeps trying to set him up with the perfect woman! But something happens when he meets Jim, and Ken suddenly wants to get to know one man, and know him very well!
These two have to work through a ton of problems, including Jim working through his coming out issues and health issues, Ken's family issues, and the nightmare that comes with his mother finally accepting his sexuality and picking the "perfect" man for him, (yeah not!!!).
Can these two men get it together before stress puts Jim's health at risk? You will love this one friends, I can't wait to see what is next with this series, and it was great to see old friends from the first book! Thanks Tara, for a book 2 that is the perfect followup for the first!!!
the 5 stethoscope rating!! :)
