    • I felt like I had read this story many times before. It isFULLof clichés. At one stage Kyle - who is a psychologist - makes a disparaging comment about women who seek therapy being 'disgruntled housewives'. I almost put the book down then but persevered. However it didn't get much better. Not the sort of book that appeals to me but it might suit those looking for something very light and predictable.


    • Emory is a 21yr old guy looking for a hook-up at the Spin, Kyle just moved back to Chicago after being gone for a few years and decides to stop in one of his old hangouts, you guessed it, the Spin.Emory and Kyle are immediately drawn to each other and spend a great night together, but when Kyle asks to see Emory again, he is told clearly, that Emory doesn't do relationships.But this being a romance the new job Kyle starts as the psychologist at the LGBTQ youth center is just the place he runs in [...]


    • This is a wonderful story. In addition to being a very engaging story with nicely developed characters, it had some of the hottest sex scenes I've read in quite awhile. From beginning to end this book was a great read.


    • Basic plot centres around Emory, a beautiful young man who hasn't had the best start in life,and who uses his stunning looks to entice casual hook ups because he can't commit to or sustain any thought of a long term loving relationship until one night at his favourite club, he meets Dr Kyle Michelson a psychologist, just arrived back to his college town. Sparks fly, they have sex and for the first time Emory sleeps over, something he would normally never do, so panicking the morning after he pra [...]


    • How to rate?If I had read this book two years ago it would have been a solid 4 stars. Nice MCs, sweet story.Nowter about 500 m/m books lateren there, read that. It wasn't really something new or breathtaking. It was predictable. Still, it was cute, the dialouges good and funny, the writing style didn't ring most of my pet-peeves like overuse of gerunds, terms for the MCs or flowery descritption of the sex (it still has one, the use of "the younger man, the doctor, the psycologist, etc.").Sotuall [...]


    • Ah yes, my old stomping grounds, Boystown in Chicago IL. Man, I used to love going there in my 20's with my friends dancing and having a grand ole' time. Spin, Hydrate, Sidetrack, Roscoe's, Kit Kat, Lucky Horseshoe, Rehab, Circuit, etc. were the places you could find me on the weekends. So while I was reading this, it brought me back to place where I was carefree and young, it was great. Then, I got bummed because I kept reading "Lakeville", but Boystown is in Lakeview. It grated on my nerves fo [...]


    • Hard to put down. Emory is so broken and I'm glad he met Kyle.He's so patient with Em's stubbornness when he's not on his therapist mood that is. :)They're really good together, add a nice cute mutt Max in the middle they made a perfect couple.Unputdownable and really sweet.Recommended.



    • Everything about Emory was contradictory and fascinating and surprising. Kyle couldn’t rid the beautiful man from his mind.Emory was perhaps the most beautiful man to ever grace Kyle’s sheets, but there was something else about Emory (that) intrigued him. Those soulful eyes—he found himself aching to learn more about what was behind them.oOoEmory didn’t have many rules he lived by, but there were a few he never broke:~ sex is just sex; if you can help it, don’t spend the night;~ never [...]


    • Review posted on World of Diversity FictionIf you’re looking for a book without the angst that is a sweet and easy read, where the MC’s are likeable characters then you may want to have a look at Analyzing Emory. Emory is a young man who has trust issues. He’s someone that doesn’t do relationships he prefers one night stands and Kyle, a psychologist who has never liked one night stands prefers to be in a relationship. They meet at a club and are instantly attracted to each other. Kyle ta [...]


    • This is a nice opposites-attract story. Kyle is a psychologist who picks up a younger man, Emory, at a club one night for a one-night-stand. Once it's over, Kyle wants more. He wants to get to know Emory but Emory refuses. He doesn't do relationships and makes this known often. Life doesn't always go as planned so of course the two men end up bumping into each other over time as Kyle is the new resident psychologist where Emory volunteers. Kyle still pushes for more than one night and Emory cont [...]


    • Absolutely wonderful book. This was about REAL LIFE issues and fears. The HEA was hard fought real world happy.


    • top2bottomreviews.wordpress/4.5 Kisses!!This is the first book I’ve read by Lily Grace and it definitely won’t be my last! I really liked the way Ms. Grace got into the heart and soul of her characters and thoroughly enjoyed her descriptive storytelling ability.I loved the two heroes. Both Kyle and Emory are interesting men who definitely come from two very different backgrounds. Kyle has had a good support system throughout his life. He’s just come out of a relationship and longs to start [...]


    • I'll give this book a 2.5. It was okay, I probably would have liked it more if I had read it when I first began reading m/m romances, but now it just didn't do it for me.I liked the premise, I liked the first chapter and the complications set up early on, but as I kept on reading i felt more and more let down. The stake's, for either of the characters,, weren't high enough for me to feel it was an exciting enough story. Emory's past, wasn't as awful as I expected when i started reading (don't ge [...]


    • I adored this story. Kyle and Emory contradict each other a lot, but they both have a need to love and be loved. Making an effort to be together is easier said than done. A hot one-night stand between strangers goes wrong when they find out they actually have to work together in the same place. Kyle is sure of himself, that he wants Emory, while Em is like a rabbit being hunted, skittish and afraid. As their relationship as friends progresses, they have to accept that the feelings between them a [...]


    • This is a fun read. You have two main characters who could be considered opposites coming together to make a whole. Emory is afraid of commitment, afraid of making connections and being left. He comes from troubled past and believes one night stands are the only way to keep him from getting hurt again. Kyle wants commitment, he believes in relationships, and was shocked he took Emory home the same night he meet him. The two have lots of problems that they work through and after the initial one n [...]


    • I really hate rating a book as not very good. Being an eternal optimist, I always hope every book I pick is brilliant, and that I will enjoy it. In this case, I was disappointed. It had some good parts, but also some bad partse word "cheesy" comes to mind. It was very predictable. I could tell what would happen 5 chapters before it happened. It was just filled with overused cliches. Suffers abuse - check, gets kicked out and abandoned = check, lives on streets for some time = check, blows strang [...]


    • I liked this story. I liked the character of Benlol He didn't hold back the punches. Maybe you can bring back Emory and Kyle for a Christmas story :-)


    • 2.5 stars. This was a sweet read, but nothing new. There was nothing that made it stand out from the hundreds of other similarly themed stories. It was a little lacking in emotional impact.


    • It felt like a story I've read 100 times. It was fine but didn't have anything which made it stand out. The book is exactly what's in the blurb, just in a bit more detail.



    • M/M is at its best when both heroes are strong in their own way and this is a balance Analyzing Emory gets exactly. On the surface it would be easy to say that Kyle, the psychologist, has all the strengths – and it's true that Kyle is a brilliant hero, a real knight in shining armor. Emory is warm-hearted and generous but he has plenty of spunk. He turns bad experiences into an eagerness to help others which, while uniting him with Kyle in the need to spread goodwill, also marks him as strong [...]


    • I really liked the way the relationship between Kyle and Emory was built up. What started as a one night stand when Kyle first moves back to Chicago (left NY and a long-term, but passionless, relationship) becomes something that neither man can walk away from. Kyle mad me a bit sad, he is such a nice guy and clearly has a lot to offer someone but he is so lonely. His parents were killed 5 years ago so he only has his sister, brother-in-law, niece and 2 "uncles"he is definitely a relationship guy [...]


    • I enjoyed this book, it is well written, no excess words, flowed nicely. However, I just didnt click into it as much as I wanted to! I would rate about 3.5 but not enough emotion to round up.I liked the premise - Emory, broken down by all life has thrown at him, eventually coming to accept life's ups with Kyle's help. I really liked Emory's character and could empathise with him and when he did do his panic running away, as befitting his character, it wasnt for long and he did come back to face [...]


    • 3 3/4 stars, rounded up!Emory has rules. Sex is just sex. Never sleep with the same person twice. Don’t fall in love. Kyle is back in Chicago after seven years in New York. The two meet at a bar and Emory asks Kyle why he was staring at Emory. Kyle’s answer is one Emory never heard before and he’s intrigued, but worried. He finds himself drawn to Kyle in a way he’s never been before. Kyle makes Emory feel…exposed.When they return to Kyle’s loft Emory is disturbed to find the feelings [...]


    • I admit I'm a little tired of books with MCs who hook up in the first few pages. I've really come to appreciate the slow build. So if I had read this book 100 books ago, the beginning probably wouldn't have bored me so much. After their second sex-only hookup, when Kyle and Emory's relationship begins in earnest outside the bedroom, my interest picked up. Emory has been through a lot. It makes sense that he has a lot defenses in place. I did get tired of his waffling and stubbornness. What more [...]


    • 2.5 stars, really.Not outright terrible but very amateurish. Felt like the characters were puppets to the author's plot outline. No depth, very shallow, and full of cliches. You knew what was going to happen every step of the way, because it's happened in just too many books before. The characters had no reason to do what they did except it was the cliche thing to do.To top it off, the author did a lot of telling instead of showing and overused too many rote phrases, like she was copying the wor [...]


    • This book was amazing! I loved it and I loved Kyle and Emory <3Many of the reviews call it clique and such but I did not feel that way and I have read over 400 MM books. I loved the characters and the writing was just the best!This book make me feel all warm and fuzzy! That is the best way for a book to make me feel <3Kyle is sweet and patient and Emory, well Emory is precious but doesn't know his own worth. I love Emory the most out of the characters and I am glad he found happiness. He d [...]


    • Some things were predictable, but I enjoyed the book anyway. I liked the characters, I liked the romance between them, I liked the development of Emory's character, the way he overcame his fears with Kyle's help. A lot of things happening in the book are things common to many romance stories, but the writer managed to give them the right depth for me to feel moved several times, even though I could feel certain things were going to happen already before they did. When a story is well written, I [...]


    • I thought Kyle and Emory were excellent characters and I felt pulled into their story. I thought the love and emotion was great and the sex was even better. I do however wish the story was longer or there would be a book 2. I'd love to keep experiencing their lives together through Emory going to school, his new job, their wonderful relationship and even possibly them getting married or even adopting kids. Great book!!
