#WOTR #MM #Review – Ryker & Gavin by AD Ellis

Ryker & Gavin

Gavin Mitchel has resigned himself to a lonely and unfulfilling love life, but his first meeting with Ryker Hudson is as steamy as it is random, which is precisely the way Ryker likes it. Their second meeting, while equally random, is beyond awkward.
Although a fourteen-year age difference stands in their way, a much larger obstacle is also blocking their path. Together, Ryker and Gavin must find the strength to overcome the roadblocks or bid farewell to their happily ever after.
**This is a male/male romance meant for ages 18+ due to adult language and situations.**



I received this book from the author for an honest review.

AHH YES!  This book is by far my favorite of AD’s.  I don’t know why but Gavin just got to me……Maybe it’s his age, nerdy persona, unconfident and unlucky in love???  Maybe its Ryker just wanting to be loved and accepted for who he is unconditionally??  I don’t know but this couple….my heart!!!

Imagine finding a one night stand and thinking that MAYBE it could me more….and then a week later finding out this is soooo not possible because that one night stand is your best friends son…yeah AKWARD family dinners right!!??  WELL imagine said mother threw her gay son out when he came out at 18???  I mean HARSH.  Gavin is stuck…rock and hard place for dang sure.  We can feel his conflicted feelings for Ryker.  He is young and fun but he makes Gavin feel comfortable which isn’t an easy feat for “the old man”.

Ryker is hurting and refuses to let his mother back in but then after listening to his bestie and Gavin, he realized maybe he is willing to forgive things…but more importantly, is he willing to give things a go with Gavin???  *I was chanting DO IT DO IT*

You guys seriously, I felt the sadness from Gavin.  I felt and understood the anger at Ryker but I did wanna nut punch him one or twice for his overly rude comments.  But the feels are soooooooo THERE in this book.

I will say I loved seeing my Torey Hope peps and the side love story which totally helped Gavin and Ryker admit their feelings for one another…………

A.D. Ellis spends the majority of her days loving and wrangling two school-aged children and a husband before heading to the inner city of Indiana to teach a challenging group of alternative education students in grades third through sixth. Most days she hits the gym after school in hopes of running and lifting away the stress and headaches of the day before picking up her children and squeezing a whole day’s worth of loving and living into the too-short hours before bed. It’s no wonder Ms. Ellis lives for the slower, easier days she gets to enjoy on breaks from school.
Growing up in a small farming town in southern Indiana, A.D. is grateful to her mother for passing along the love of reading. With her nose constantly stuck in a book, Ms. Ellis became accustomed to friends and acquaintances snickering and shaking their heads at her love of reading.
A.D. never dreamed of being anything but a teacher, although there are certain times of the year when she laments her career choice. Ms. Ellis had a story idea floating in her head for about a year. After persistent prodding from a friend, A.D. put pen to paper and began writing her first story in October 2013. From that moment on, she was hooked. Taking the people and stories from her head and sharing them with readers is a scary, exhausting, rewarding, and fulfilling experience which A.D. plans to continue until there are no more stories banging around in her mind.
A.D. Ellis’ work can be found on both iBooks and Amazon. Please contact her on Facebook, Twitter, or her website.
