  1. This book starts promising Detective Kyle Shelton, who apparently after two years still has feeling for Dustin Eldridge, decides to bail his ex of his when Dustin is caught for prostitution Dustin s life has been turned into sh t, after his wife found out about Kyle Dustin has lost his wife, his job, his family, mostly everything, and now he resorts to sell his body to survive Kyle then takes Dustin home and then this is where it DOESN T WORK for me It says that Dustin liked to play it rough bef [...]



  2. I ve been a fan of Ms Kersten s m m romances ever since I read A Helping Hand, which is one of the books in her Tennessee Cops series, and which is still one of my favorites I ve said it before but I think she writes wonderful characters, that I can feel connected with The way she shows a snippet from their lives, makes you understand them easily, because she effortlessly lets you slip inside her heroes heads In the novella River of Need the fourth installment in the Tennessee Cops series we mee [...]


  3. Sadly, I would barely give this a 2 star rating view spoiler The characters just didn t seem that convincing to me Kyle was miserable for 2 years just because Dustin s wife came into the picture And while keeping his distance after the break up, he wasted no time in bringing Dustin home and in his bed He first claimed he could not trust his lover with so many lies between them but when Dustin promises to make their relationship work the second time around, he believes it all Dustin also seemed v [...]


  4. I really enjoyed River of Need Having read both Hidden Force and Hidden Hands, I was excited to revisit the characters from those books and read Kyle s story.River of Need starts out with an emotional punch that continues throughout the story Shayla Kersten packs a lot emotion into ninety nine pages This story left a lump in my throat and teaches a valuable lesson in love Dustin s life turned from good to bad in almost the blink of an eye because he wasn t honest but with the love and trust of t [...]


  5. Actually it s my favorite book of the series.The setting worked for me really well I guess it s just different things for me when MCs are in a relationship and one of them starts having sex with someone on the side yes, it s cheating and I m pissed But when MCs are in a relationship and then suddenly we learn one of them has a wife and a part of his life, where people think he s straight it s not that much of a problem for me Seriously It s not like cheating, like just being in the closet.So I [...]


  6. Maybe not as good as the first 3 books in the series but still an enjoyable read The story is about Kyle, a policeman, who broke up with Dustin two years previously, after Dustin lied about his marriage Dustin finds himself on hard times and on the wrong side of the law Kyle wants to help Dustin but needs to decide whether he can trust him This is made even difficult when Dustin becomes the suspect in a series of murders3.5 stars


  7. These were two MC s that I never could manage to give a damn about as neither were very likable or sympathetic One HUGE problem for me was with Kyle The fact that he was getting off on Dustin relaying the details of a trick turned bad and him being gang raped by four men I think I despised him at that point.


  8. While not my favorite it was still enjoyable I liked seeing how past characters interacted with each other and seeing a quick glimpse on how they are doing.



  9. 35 is a little old to be a male prostitute, especially with gray hair in his beard I don t like that Dustin came out basically because he had to That s disgusting Getting off on Dustin s abuse Using it during sex as a come on Too much sex Even than a typical shifter story I don t understand this series The first book was so different than the rest which are pretty much just sex Mediocre peril Well the peril was okay but the hospital scene was pathetic So why we re the murders always after Dusti [...]



  10. Contemproary Police M M romance with a serial killer on the loose while some hot sexy reunion steam is blown off with Detective Kyle Shelton and his lying cheating ex boyfriend, Dustin Eldridge I was suprised to see how quickly someone can be rich and comfortable to homeless with nothing In Dustin s case it only took less then two years to being totally helpless and homeless Its true that who wants to help the unwashed stinky masses of men and women on the street who may not have a mental proble [...]


  11. This is one of those booksa that was on my want to buy list for ages and then when I finally did, it only ended up on my to read shelf I think River of Need falls into the category of books that have enormous potential that never blossoms The characters were great, they had loads of chemistry and the sex was hot but it was like reading a Reader s Digest version This was simply too short to handle all the elements that were present.Shayla Kersten writes well and that made it doubly sad that the b [...]


  12. Hmmmm, so I compromised at a 3 because I did like the series and devoured it in a few days Something about the way Kyle Dustin interacted in the bedroom bothered me and sometimes left me uncomfortable Nothing too disturbing, just don t think view spoiler hearing about his ex lover s unwilling gang bang while prostituting himself in the middle of sex should ve been a turn on That kind of killed that scene for me A couple others like that hide spoiler In the end, a HEA for the MCs that ends in a f [...]


  13. 3.5 StarsI m in the minority again But this time it s because I really liked this book Yay Maybe it was just the luck of the draw insofar as this came after reading a string of low star books maybe it was because I love imperfect characters and second chances maybe it was because Kyle and Dustin just did it for me I dunno But whatever the reason, I liked this the best of the series to date.Bottom line surprisingly entertaining.


  14. While I liked the rest of the series, the main reason I didn t enjoy this book is because I just didn t like the MC Dustin Eldridge I m not sure why Kyle takes him back and forgives him after the reasons behind their break up Since I didn t buy the reasons for them getting back together, the rest of the story fell apart for me If it wasn t for the fact that Dustin s life fell apart after he was busted 2 years ago, he would probably still be Kyle s lying, cheating, closeted ex Meh.


  15. This one was my least favourite of the series as sex as a weapon revenge isn t a trope I enjoy I like a spot of rough as much as the next gal, but this had a whole lot of self hatred revenge factor that turned me right off The crime plot was wrapped up a little too abruptly for my liking as well.


  16. This one seemed far too short and a lot less plausible I get that when you love someone the bad things don t always matter, but after being caught lying and being married to a woman I just don t see Kyle forgiving and getting back together so quickly or easily with Dustin.


  17. It was an okay read, I think it could have be a lot better if the author expounded on the solving of the murder a little bet and that the characters took their time to reacquaint themselves to each other, bottom line I think this story was rushed.


  18. I was not sure I would like this story because the book blurb did not really interest me however, I truly enjoyed the other books in this series so I bought it anyway I am very glad I did It was well worth the money A unique story and very appealing characters





  19. Ok m m romance about a cop who bails out his ex, who s been picked up for prostitution I wanted a bit from this story a bit length, a bit depth.





  20. This is a story of forgiveness and second chances Although it s not as great as the first three, it s still a pretty good book I highly recommend the entire Tennessee Cops series
