    Review completed January 15, 2013 You were motivated by kindness and the desire to help I don t get a lot of that in my line of work So I ll take the impaired judgment and good heart over anything else I ve seen Sebastian Swift is a recovering drug addict, a poet as well as a respectable college professor and the director of the prestigious Lighthouse MFA program of Casco Bay College in Southern Maine Swift is ready to go home and on his way to his office when he sees a kid slumped in a chair outside the office door The severely battered kid is Tad Corelli, a very talented student Swift is trying to help him but Tad doesn t want to talk about his problems He needs a breather and Swift is offering him the key to his bungalow on Orson Island Standing in that silent, shadowy room, it suddenly hit Swift that it was probably too late now for things to move in the direction he d have liked Time and tide Love had its own circadian rhythms, and it was beginning to look like he and Max had misse...

    That is how I should start this review It was my first book of Josh Lanyon but for sure not the last one.His writing is AMAZING And that is my review I love poetry Not like buying a poetry eBook, reading it and write a review after.I love it like to have poetry paperback books on my real shelf in my real living room I like it like to pick up from time to time a suitable for my mood book and read a poem or two or even .I love poetry like writing it Of course only for me.but I LOVE POETRY.I have a weak spot for the main characters who have passion for words and writing Let one of them be a former drug addicted, fragile, sensitive professor and lover of fine poetry and I m lost Add to my excitement the hot, handsome Police Chief Max Prescott, a problematic relationship, a thrilling mystery story, a steamy sex,...

    2.5 stars Welcome to what is apparently opposite day on Goodreads, Heather edition I started off the day by loving a book that most of my friends told me to skip, they disliked it so much Bad Company and ended it with feeling meh about a book that my GR friends love almost unanimously I m waiting for the devil to help an old lady cross the street and Mother Theresa to come back as the leader of the damned because things are just cuckoo loca around here for me today.Well, I ll start off with what I liked about this one I liked the moody, atmospheric setting of the book It felt like real, small town New England I also thought that the characters of Swift and Max were really interesting each with their own struggles and obstacles that they had to overcome I thought that Swift s battle with addiction was poignant and a highlight of the book for me Here is my issue the romance I felt like something happened between Max and Swift that I completely missed I guess there was something momentous occurring between them that I didn t pick up on From Swift s POV, Max seemed distant and ambivalent about their relationship for the past few years I mean, he even said that Max saying that he missed Swift one time was the most romantic thi...

    Written June 8, 20143.8 Stars Well made, stylish and tastefully presented, but perhaps not breathtaking engagingI ve enjoyed all six books I read by Josh Lanyon so far I can t but shudder of that wonderful expectant pleasure to immediatly throw me over yet another praised story by JL My friends reviews are very promising and JL s great admirer Lena recommended me to read this novel months ago There are few things in this life bamboo under fingernails than good poetry read aloud badly unless it is bad poetry read aloud badly Mr Lanyon is by now a favorite author His novels have a calm amidst the chaos These men feel so real with both weaknesses and shortcomings but ultimately in the end with large tender hearts Another good one read the words on this postcard Like the one Swift got from Max Professor Sebastian Swift, once the bad boy darling of the literati, is now living a simple and quiet drug free life in a small town in Southern Maine His old wild poet s society life is since long dead and buried Even Swift s relationship with the hot, handsome Police Chief Max Prescott is rather modest and imprec...

    I fucking love this book It s fucking awesome Fuckity fuck fuck, it s so good it made me teary eyed It s possible I may love it than the Adrien English series.That s right I m super serious about my love for this book.There s a lot of great reviews so I ll stick to this I love the way Josh Lanyon s love of books, his appreciation of other writers, creeps into everything he writes In this book it s poetry and Choose Your Own Adventure books, in Adrien English and the Holmes and Moriarity series it s mystery novels and The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks it s trashy detective novels Now, maybe that sounds obvious He s a writer, of course, he loves books Dur But I frequently get the idea generally about books I dislike that the writer has read nothing but how to books on writing Or perhaps they ve only read books within the genre they re writing in to get an idea of what s most popular with readers What s guaranteed to sell.Okay, having said that I ll add that there s nothing really wrong with that, everyone has to consider their economic situation and learning what they can to improve their writing as well as choosing an audience I heard an anecdote, maybe apocryphal, about Lawrence Durrell...

    Amazing and IntenseWell, Josh has done it again Written another amazing romantic mystery with realistic imperfect characters and such vivid imagery that I felt so connected with the story and the main characters Only this time Swift made me cry even than Adrien Swift s struggle to stay sober was breaking my heart I cried when he wanted to use and I cried when Max was there to save him Those that know me well, know that I hardly ever cry He only wanted to help a friend and believed he was doing the right things and those choices nearly destroyed him I have to say that I loved the brief Choose Your Own Adventure scenarios at the beginning of each chapter For me, it brought to mind the paths that Swift chose to take throughout the course of his life thus far What would you choose to do in this situation Can you really control your own destiny Or will the finale always end up being the same Swift and Max s relationship was intense Here you have the recovering cocaine addict literature professor slash famous former poet and the small town s chief of police Can they be any different Yet they were perfect for each other I loved how Swift called Max Chief and how Max called Swift Teach It made me smile everytime And when Max told Swift, I m not going to let go of you I m going to hold you all night So go ahead and feel whatever you feel If you re still craving cocaine, go ahead You re safe You can c...

    Lanyon has taught me that I had a real soft spot for recovering addicts.Oh, Swift You just can t win Spoilers Everywhere Spoilers here, there, spoilers in jars next to here and there I d like to think I m moderately well versed in the ways of Josh Lanyon books now, since I ve been practically shoving the words into a blender and injecting them into the juiciest vein I can find, lately I can t get enough It s an addiction on it s own That being said, this is one of my favorite Lanyon books It s in my top three so far Which is hard to pick because it s like picking a favorite child which actually might be easier for me.This book is about a beautiful, perfect angel named Swift He s a professor with a smart attitude, compassion flying out of his butt, and a jaded past What can anyone ask for He s been dating the police chief of their small town, whose name is Max Max is fucking ballin One of Swift s best students comes to Swift battered, bloody, and asks for Swift s help And Swift does what anyone with a heart would do he helps the kid He then finds out that the kid s dad has been found murdered and Swift might ve just helped the kid escape But Swift doesn t think the kid did it, but he fails to immediate tell his boyfriend, Max about it Insert drama here _________________.I love this book ...

    THIS was exactly what I needed Josh Lanyon once again dazzled me with words, banter, men and mystery Swift s voice had me grinning ear to ear, chuckling, laughing out loud, and in tears.I have said this before, but I need to shout out my love one time the settings and descriptions The way Mr Lanyon can pull me into a scene with every single one of my senses is my favorite part of the ride and read I m right there in the moment, in the room, and in the tension With sound, a breeze, cup of tea, or touch the pages come to life right before my eyes Every missed moment, unsaid word, and embrace feels so real to me Soft caresses and touches that I can feel right down to my toes Swift closed his eyes, trying to concentrate on nothing than the feel of Max s hand rubbing his back Such a simple, uncomplicated pleasure, that of touch Max smoothed the thin skin between Swift s shoulder blades Max and Swift have been seeing each other, hanging out, hell whatever they want to call it for years with no big commitment or plans But their whole routine and world goes all topsy turvy when one of Swift s favorite students is accused of murder Lies, truth, history, and small town gossip get all kinds of tangled up causing trouble on top of turmoil Can Swift and Max s relationship survive a murder investigation, old addictions clawing their way in, an...
