HELLO FRIENDS! I READ THE GEORGE AND HARVEY SERIES A WHILE AGO, AND I LOVED IT! NOW SEEMS TO BE THE PERFECT TIME TO DO A SERIES REVIEW, NOW THAT THE SERIES IS ON SALE, AND BOOK 1 IS FREE UNTIL FRIDAY! GRAB YOURS NOW! HERE IS MY REVIEW:
I LOOKED FOR A QUOTE THAT WOULD SUM UP THE WHOLE SERIES TO ME, AND THIS IS IT! HERE ARE THE BOOKS WITH MINI REVIEWS AND RATING PICS:
BOOK 1: THE SECRET:
When 32 year old married author George Lewis sees 19 year old Harvey Jasper reading one of his books in the local bookstore, he can't help but be drawn to him. After giving Harvey his cellphone number, he soon receives a call from Harvey asking if he can intern under George. Reluctantly, George says yes, and agrees to let Harvey into his home for a whole month.
As they spend more and more time together, Harvey shares his heart-breaking story with George and his eyes are opened up to a whole new world with whole new emotions. George soon discovers something he never thought he'd find in another man...love.
To be honest, I didn't know how I would like this series because I am not a fan of cheating in a story, but I have to say, Ashley pulled off the almost impossible and made me love it!
George is lonely, despite being married, and when he meets Harvey at the bookstore, something comes over him, something he can't control, nor does he want to. In this book we get a feel for who George and Harvey are, and what they are dealing with in their lives. I am so glad Ashley John did this 'introduction book' so to speak, it was brilliant!
the 5 first edition Dickens rating :)

BOOK 2: THE TRUTH:
After Harvey's heartbreaking confrontation with his brother, Leo, he tries to pick up the pieces of his life, but he can't decide where Leo and George fit in.
When George's wife returns after spending time away looking after her sick mother, George must decide between his wife and his young male lover, and Harvey must decide between a surprise proposal from his brother, and George. Will Harvey finally get the man he loves? Will he find the family he longs for? Will George do the right thing and follow his heart, or will he keep breaking Harvey's?
This book in the series tugged at my heartstrings, it is clear how Harvey and George feel about each other, but will the other people in their lives leave them be and let them be happy?
The way Ashley John writes the story, you are able to climb inside and feel all the emotions these two feel, which is sometimes heartbreaking in this book. The big question you have while reading this one will be, can these two men overcome all these hurdles and just be together like they are meant to be?
Another winner from this author, I read these before Surf Bay was even out and I loved his style even then!

BOOK 3: THE FIGHT:
5 months have passed since Harvey left George behind and he is touring the country with his brother Leo, but things aren't quite how he expected. After struggling to stay sober, Leo slips back into his old ways and Harvey's world quickly becomes hell on earth. Terrible and heart-breaking things happen to Harvey, forcing him to go back and fight for the only person who he truly loves, George Lewis.
Will George accept him with open arms once again? Will Paula step-aside and let Harvey take her husband? Will Leo ever let his brother go? Are Harvey's actions going to have deadly consequences?
Will George & Harvey ever get their happy ending?
Boy is this the most perfect end to this series! Every question you ever had about these books gets answered, and I love that! The worst thing is getting invested in a series and then it leaves you hanging, you don't have to worry a bit about that here! This is wrapped up in a neat little bow.
Harvey and George are living apart when we see them first in this book, can they find the strength to admit they need each other and take steps to make that happen?
Toward the end of this book you will get a shock, then soon after another one! Whew I am telling you what, this book will keep you on your toes till the ending, don't you love the ones that do that! Thank you Ashley John, for a series that invokes every emotion, but most importantly, just makes us feel!
