Release Blitz & Book Review – Let Me Show You by Becca Seymour

A big welcome to Becca Seymour as part of her release blitz with Gay Book Promotions for Let Me Show You.

Review

I loved the characters in this feel-good low-angst romance. They are both good guys, yet with different personalities which complement each other. Their different reactions and approaches to dealing with an ongoing problem highlighted those differences, and, I thought, was very realistic. I loved how Tanner is so protective of Carter, and his reaction when Carter is getting a hard time. I also liked how they danced around their feelings for a while which resulted in them building a strong friendship to finally build a relationship on.

The supporting cast feel very three dimensional as well, and I particularly loved the friendship/family vibe between Davis and Tanner. The fact that Tanner relocates to be Davis’ support system to the extent that most wouldn’t, says a lot about his strength of character. Carter’s parents are great, especially his mother. She’s a force to be reckoned with, and such a different personality from her son. I enjoy books with a strong sense of family, and this story had that in spades. Lauren is a good friend, and I liked the banter between her and Carter. Mrs. Carlisle needs a mention too. She was wonderful, especially when she asks Tanner a few important questions. I could feel their ‘what, huh?’ and embarrassment in that scene. Loved it.

Scott comes across as an arsehole, but I was left wanting to know his story, and the reasons behind his reactions, and issue with Carter being gay. I would have loved for a scene later in the story to be a little longer, and give more insight into him.

The blurb is a little misleading as Rex didn’t play the role of matchmaker to the extent it makes out, but that didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the story. As soon as I’d finished reading I checked out the author’s website and was very happy to learn there will be another book which will be Davis’s story, so looking forward to reading it.

I’d recommend Let Me Show You to readers who enjoy a feel-good, low-angst romance with likeable characters. I found it a great read to unwind with at the end of my day. 5 out of 5 stars.

Blurb

When a veterinarian and a construction worker connect, it takes mishaps, mistakes, and a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Rex to show them they’re made for each other.

Dr. Carter Falon is content living a quiet life in a small town caring for his animal patients. That doesn’t mean he’s not looking for a distraction. After finding himself precariously wedged… naked and at the mercy of a drop-dead gorgeous construction worker, Carter hires his savior to renovate his home.

When Tanner Grady’s best friend and new niece needed him, he uprooted and relocated without a second thought. His life has since been centered on work and spending time with his family, but when he comes to the rescue of a cute vet, Tanner finds he’s a lot more interested in the homeowner than the house he’s renovating.

 

 

Excerpt

My eyes widened when they landed on his form. Damn, it wasn’t every day a client greeted me in the nude. Looking at the path between me and who I assumed to be Carter on the ground, I tried not to let my eyes linger for too long on his smooth expanse of skin. He was lightly toned, with a softness about him that was impossible to not notice, despite trying my hardest not to.

With a shake of my head, I calculated each step I took to get to his side. Once I made it safely to the top, the floorboards creaking under my booted feet, Carter angled himself to turn and look at me. Definitely pissed off and in pain, and perhaps a bit mortified too, a light blush covering his cheeks. His gaze roamed me from bottom to top before landing on my own. I quirked my brow in amusement and question while strategically ignoring how fucking pretty his brown eyes were. “So…?” I offered.

He sighed, and I watched in fascination as his Adam’s apple bobbed when he swallowed. “I rushed from the piece-of-crap shower when I heard the knock. My foot went through the board, and it’s stuck.” His pink cheeks turned crimson.

Unable to stay the small smile tugging at my lips, I grinned as I stepped closer. I took my time to get to him, wanting to help the guy out. The last thing he needed was me falling on my ass. Clearing my throat, I crouched down at his side, my focus now on his leg and foot.

The whole area was rotten and would need ripping out. But for the time being, I’d need to tear up the two surrounding boards to get his ankle free. “You have tried to get it out, right?” I felt like a jackass for asking, but it was always best to check first.

Carter huffed out a breath. “Yeah, I did. It’s wedged against something. I tried pulling it out, but it’s a no go. It’s tighter than a virgin ass.”

My gaze whipped to his. What the fuck? With lifted brows, I stared wide-eyed at him, drawing another blush from him.

“Shoot, sorry. That was inappropriate.” His eyes widened in horror. “I meant, it’s wedged. Erm. It’s just wedged tight, and—”

I grinned. “It’s all good. Give me a sec.” The poor guy looked like he wanted to join his foot in the space under the floorboards and curl over. He needed an out, and I needed to get some air in my lungs away from his intoxicating smell and firm thighs, which were impossible to ignore in such close proximity.

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at https://annebarwell.wordpress.com
