    1. Right off the bat this didn't work for me. DNF. Ugh, first person present tense, starting off the book with a flashback, awkward writing.

    2. I ended reading this with a smile on my face. At first I thought this would just be a fluffy cute read, but it also was kinky and not the easily digestible type that sugar kink books have. Somehow the author made it work for me. Craig works up to being the perfect Dan Savage GGG boyfriend after they figure out how to communicate with each other. I'm so basking in the adorableness of Zach and Craig together making their desires work for themselves that I'm having a hard time remembering that the [...]

    3. 3.5 StarsThere were many aspects to this book I enjoyed. Craig is fun and seems really laid back,but has some hidden insecurities. He didn't have a great childhood, and I wished we could've seen a little more of that. I feel like I was told and not shown his scars on that. Then we have Zach he is so awkward, shy, and just all around adorbs. However, his parents need to choke on a bag of monstrous, cactus-like dicks!!! I think if one looked up passive aggressive bitch in the dictionary, her pictu [...]

    4. A Joyfully Jay review. DNFFirst of all, as I said, I was intrigued by the story and everything started out well. The main characters, Zach and Craig, were well written and three dimensional. Zach is shy, but he is a blossoming financial analyst, running a business out of his home. He has a best friend/roommate who cares a great deal for him (not romantically, though). His family sucks, but that added an extra layer to his personality.Why this was a DNF for me had absolutely nothing to do with th [...]

    5. I'm voluntarily reviewing a free advance reader copy I received from the author.Zach is a shy guy who blushes constantly. Craig sees the blushing as a challenge, until he realizes how much it bothers Zach. They form a tentative relationship as they get to know each other, and it felt organic in the way they came together and got to know each other. There were communication glitches throughout as we see insecurities come out and we meet evil family members, but fortunately the guys overcome those [...]

    6. Awkward geek meets avid gamer this book hit all my inner nerd buttons. I loved it from start to finish, even when they were being stupid guys who wouldn't just stop and talk things out. LOL. But then, if they did, where would the story be, right? Great read.

    7. ♥.•*¨)☆♡¸.•*´¨)☆♡¸.•♥*´¨)☆♡♥♡☆(¸.•♥Blushy McBlusherson."Independent small business consultant" Zach wanted a life different than most. He could barely hold onto a boyfriend because of his kinks. He was smart; a nerd some would say, and barely hanging on by a thread with his deeply homophobic family. But he had best friend Ben to cheer him up and take his side. That is, until Ben's video store coworker, the incorrigible Craig entered the picture and eventua [...]

    8. 3.5 stars rounded up. Good story.Loved, loved the unusual for romance kink although I know it won't be for everyone especially romance purests. Hated how Craig reacted time and again to anything uncomfortable. Will read the next one

    9. I think I found my new one-click author. This is J.D. Chamber’s debut novel, and what an amazing story it was. I loved it. Beautifully written, it grabbed me right from the start. I couldn’t put the book down, so engrossed was I in Craig and Zach’s story.The story started rather calm (aside from the prologue). Craig and Zach meet through their mutual friend, Ben. They hit it off immediately, and the chemistry is undeniable. The build-up of their relationship is steadily and very well done. [...]

    10. Hurt-Comfort and KinkYummy. Two of my favorite things. I'll be honest. When I started this book, I wasn't sure I was going to like it. There were vague references to some kind of unforgivable—according to the MC's inner monologue—kink, and I kept thinking, "What the fuck could possibly be so bad?"Well, I guess that depends on your perspective. I won't spoil it here since it's such a huge part of the story, but suffice it to say, this book was freaking H-O-T. I'll admit, what Zach gets off on [...]

    11. Great debut novel by JD Chambers!I rate this 3.5 stars rounded up to four.First, barring the need for contractions, the writing is great. The story flows nicely, the relationships between all of the characters are great, and this story really made me feel, whether it was happy, sad, or frustrated. This story was funny and sweet and despite the 3.5-star rating, I really do recommend it and I look forward to more books in this series!The story itself isn't overly angsty but there were a few moment [...]

    12. This is JD Chambers first book, and I can tell you that if the rest of the books are like this one, I will have no problem with reading them all the second they come out. Before I get into this review, I want to make it clear that this is an LGBT romance, and if that offends you, then you should definitely not read this book. Make sure you read responsibly, because otherwise you aren't being fair to yourself or the author. So, the book. It is a lovely, sweet romance, with great sex and a soupcon [...]

    13. First of all I LOVE this book, just for the nerdy references alone. Especially any that pertained to a certain pair of hunter brothers ;). The dialogue is snarky and witty. Zach and Ben are BFF goals, with Ben almost stealing the spotlight here. Zach and CraigI loved them together. So quirky, sassy, and sweet enough to give you a toothache. Then the bomb dropped. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t sure I was going to be ok with Zach’s wants, it’s not usually my thing. But I was so mad at Craig tha [...]

    14. Had me until the endI was a little up and down with this book, but for the most part I enjoyed ituntil the end. I struggle when characters who are supposedly mature and in their mid twenties make ridiculous decisions, proclamations, or flee altogether, and that's how I felt at the end with Craig and Zach's reaction to the baby shower drama. It didn't quite fit with the characters presented throughout the rest of the book, and it left me with with bad taste in my mouth. Other than that, I thought [...]

    15. This was a very sweet romance between two quirky, angsty guys. I liked Craig and Zach but found that they were always overthinking on everything and every action. This was a distraction to me as the story went on as I just wanted them to be happy for once in their relationship without the angst. When they were in the moment and not overthinking things, the story flowed beautifully. Craig and Zach are a perfect match and balance each other out with their strengths and weaknesses. The secondary ch [...]

    16. I really loved this book. It was a wonderful start to a new series that I am very excited to keep reading. Craig and Zach were a wonderful couple together, lots of chemistry and heat. The story flowed well, and had good depth of story and character. I read it in one sitting it had my attention from start to finish. Secondary characters were good, loved some, and others were written so well it was hard not to plan very painful deaths for them. Looking forward to continuing on with the series, and [...]

    17. A mix of steamy, sweet, funny and touching moments. Each characters insecurities gave them real texture to me. The characters are so well drawn and the writing is beautiful! This is an awesome debut novel! The story drew me in right from the beginning and i became really invested in Craig and Zach. I was so gratified when they found their way to their HEA. i just loved how much Craig loved and accepted Zach and i loved how they fit together, balanced each other. i will be looking forward to read [...]

    18. Quirky and nerdy meets good-looking and unpretentious. I love this story about two seemingly ordinary guys with extraordinary qualities who find love. We don't always need stories about alphas or billionaires or Navy SEALs. Ordinary heroes fall in and out of love too and this story is about two such people. Zach is the nerdy one, I love how vulnerable and sensitive he is, yet assertive at the right times. And Craig is witty and charming, always supportive of Zach. Good read!*ARC provided by auth [...]

    19. The prologue is a little rough to read but it gives you a glimpse into the mind of Zach. Then when Zach and Craig met, the social awkward comes out and yet that just makes Zach more adorable to Craig. As the two of them move forwards in their relationship, both have worries and mistakes are made. The writing is incredible and even with touching on a subject that some would not understand, it is written so well that by the end of it everyone should be able to understand how everyone has different [...]

    20. Only With You is a sweet, sexy romantic comedy with a bit of a kinky twist. Zach is a lovable nerd who finally meets his match in Craig, a man who loves all of Zach's quirks. Their banter is hilarious and witty, their connection palpable, and their chemistry sizzling. While there were some bumps in the road, I truly enjoyed the journey to their HEA and that ending?? WOW. Another highlight of the story is the cast of supporting characters. I can't wait for the next book in the series!

    21. This story has two unique men meeting and realizing after a few bumps along the way that they are meant to be together.Zach is shy at first but grows out of it.Craig is the gamer who has the job all gamers love selling them to other people but he doesn't want to be alone forever .If you like cute men who know what they want but let it slip through their fingers a few times before grabbing it , this is for you.

    22. Unconventional love storyLove finds Craig and Zack unexpectedly. Zack has family issues and Craig has no family. Zack, while not shy about his sex life, has needs that he can't explain. Voicing those needs in the past didn't work out well for him. Craig decides that fulfilling Zack's need might work for him too. Be prepared for some angst and multiple partners. Happy reading

    23. While they might seem like opposites at first, Zach and Craig are more alike than they think. Both have insecurities. Zachs' are more obvious than Craigs. I really enjoyed the banter between these two. They are sweet and sexy together.

    24. Congrats to JD Chambers on their debut book.I did mostly enjoy this book. The characters are flawed enough to keep the story interesting.The only reason this book wasn't a 5 star read for me, is a due to my personal aversion to events that aren't to my particular taste.This book is however well written and edited.

    25. Opposites attract in this story. We meet Zach an introvert who works from home. He meets Craig when he takes his flatmate Ben's lunch into his workplace and immediately he becomes a gibbering wreck. Craig is an extrovert who is in a rut working at Game Over a gaming store, he is immediately attracted to Zach and gradually brings him out of his shell.Beautifully written.

    26. GreatReally enjoyed the story of Zach and Craig. They had a few issues to work through but in the end love won. I recommend reading this book.

    27. This book was FANTASTIC! Craig & Zach had me hooked from the beginning to the very last page. Their story was one of true love, caring & understanding and as I was following their wonderful journey to HEA I just could not put it down! Without giving anything away, I truly felt I was following their journey, with laughs, sadness & happy tears. This is a MUST READ for any fan of steamy romance & HEAs!I really can't wait to see what else JD Chambers has in store for the the rest of [...]

    28. I can't believe this is the author's debut book. The writing flows so well, the characters are well developed (both main and secondary), and the sex scenes are out of this world! It is set in Fort Collins, Colorado, where I dream of moving, so that's an added plus. Main characters are set up for future books in such a way you want the author to hurry up and release more. The sex scenes will not be for everyone, but it pushed all of my buttons. An ARC was given by the author for an honest review. [...]

    29. 3.5 starsI did enjoy the book and I think the main characters are very sweet and likeable. The story flowed quite easily and if you love slow, sexy and low angst reads, then you'll love this book. However, I love angst and lots of it. I liked this book but didn't love it. I also only really enjoy menage when the characters are all in the relationship and not hook ups. Like I've already mentioned if you love a sweet sexy romance, then you'll love this book.
