A big welcome to Becca Seymour as part of her release blitz with Gay Book Promotions for I’ve Got You.
When I first read about Scott in book one of this series, I disliked his actions but suspected there was something more going on with him. Not that I condoned his behaviour, and one of the things I liked about his and Davis’ story is that he knows he behaved badly and is called out on it by other characters too. However, he goes from being a character who is easy to dislike to someone I enjoyed reading about, and was rooting for in this story. That’s very impressive!
One of the reasons I love reading in series is that even if each book focuses on different characters, there is still a sense of catching up with old friends. I was very happy that Carter and Tanner from book 1 have their own part to play in this story, and that Tanner is keeping an eye on Scott and he still has to prove himself. His reaction felt very realistic. Carter is such a good person, and ready to forgive far quicker than others would be, and are. I enjoyed seeing characters from different perspectives too, although Carter’s mother is still a hoot no matter whose eyes she’s seen through.
I liked learning more about Davis in this story, and loved how he isn’t the only one who falls for Scott. The scenes with Scott interacting with Libby and obviously falling for her as well as her father are adorable. I also liked how Davis recognises that Scott is still learning and coming to terms with his sexuality and that, instead of them diving into a relationship, they both take the time to wait and get to know each other, and Scott to know himself first. I loved the moment when Davis realises they have a future. It’s very sweet.
I felt for Scott and the horrible upbringing he has had, and also for his sister Jenna. I liked that the author took the time to resolve that part of the story, as it wouldn’t have felt complete without that final showdown.
I got absorbed in Scott and Davis’ story very quickly, was rooting for them to get together from their first meeting, and would be very happy if the author decided to revisit this series at some point in the future.
I’d recommend I’ve Got You to readers who enjoy a sweet romance with a redemption story that keeps you turning pages. 5 out of 5 stars.

It is a standalone story. It is the same world with different characters as Let Me Show You.
When a single dad and a newly outed veterinarian meet by chance, it takes red-cheeked conversations, a tentative friendship, and the willingness to put their hearts on the line to show these men they’re made for each other.
Single dad Davis Jackson is busy balancing his coffee shop and being the best dad he can be. That doesn’t mean he’s not lonely. After a fumbling encounter with a man who looks as gorgeous as he does unhappy, Davis is left wondering who the mystery man is.
All Davis knows is that he has never felt such an instant attraction to anyone before, but when he discovers the brown-eyed man’s identity, it’s clear the recently out-of-the-closet veterinarian is lost and quite possibly broken.
A swoon-worthy low-angst stand-alone contemporary M/M romance featuring characters from LET ME SHOW YOU.
I cleared my throat, suddenly aware I’d stayed quiet for a few seconds too long. “Hey.” My voice was gravelly and sounded unnaturally deep.
The guy paused in front of me, his hands dipping into his jeans pockets. He was quiet for a beat, seeming to contemplate what to say.
“You know Rex then?”
I nodded and then took a glance at the large head resting on my lap. With a small nod, I smiled. “Yeah. He finally likes me, so I’m taking it as a win that we’re friends.”
The brown-eyed man’s head tilted slightly, his gaze scanning my face a moment before his eyes returned to mine. “So you’re a friend of Carter’s?”
A humorless snort burst free, not enough to startle Rex, but enough for the guy to raise his brows. I cleared my throat again, not especially liking the fact that it seemed to be closing up and becoming uncomfortably dry in front of this guy. “Well, sort of. We used to work together.”
I bit back the bitter retort dancing on my tongue, tempted to ask if that wasn’t what “used to” explicitly meant. There was no need for me to be so defensive or any bigger of an asshole than I already had a reputation for being.
“Nope. Just trying to figure out my next move.” I clamped my mouth shut, wondering why I’d shared so much. He sat on the lounger beside me, stopping my analysis. “Please, take a seat.” Damn, I really needed to learn to keep my mouth shut and stop being a dickhead. “Sorry.” I threw him a small grimace, noticing both of his perfectly arched brows were lifted, his attention solely on me. There was also a small smile on his lips. I was positive I saw it twitch.
“Hey, I can leave.”
Though, he stayed put, making no indication he planned on moving. He didn’t even shrug or twitch as he spoke.
While solitude had been what I’d craved, I was smart enough to recognize that just maybe not being alone was a good thing. Being alone, I was discovering, was not helpful at all. All it did was give me too much time with my thoughts. And that had a habit of screwing with my head. While I’d sought the quiet, especially since my blowout with Carter a while back, I recognized how dangerous isolation could be. Loneliness was a slippery slope.
