Gorgeous Reviews for The Making Of A Man series from the best selling author DIane Adams who writes for Love Lane Books.

Finally, all five of Diane Adam's original books are out and available again. Meredith Russell created five stunning covers under tight deadlines, and Chris Quinton worked hard to get the five books re-edited with the same close turnarounds. Diane has worked on each manuscript and although none have changed in story each book has been edited and proofed again. And now we can add book 6, A Home For Christmas, to the list. Wonderful series.

Our December (Book 1)

Sometimes two people fit together so well it seems their love was preordained, as if every step taken led inevitably to a happy ending.

Deeply in love, Jared and Alex are such a couple, but the path to true and lasting love is rarely smooth. At 15 being gay isn’t the best thing that ever happened to a guy. In fact, Alex Ross thinks it’s down right scary. When he meets 20 year old construction worker Jared Douglas Alex starts to think the gay thing might not be so bad after all.

The attraction between them is intense, but mindful of Alex’s age Jared is determined to keep the sparks from igniting. The stress of controlling his feelings makes it almost a relief when Alex’s father ships him off to prep school. Jared expects Alex to forget him and find a boy friend his own age; he doesn’t anticipate how much it will hurt.

When Alex comes home for Christmas, just turned 16 with his heart on his sleeve, Jared knows he can’t continue to keep everything he feels a secret.

A Place To Run (Book 2)

Some people have a bucket list, that famous list of things to do before they die. Clark has a list too, and it can be summed up in a single word: Love. For Clark, love is what his friends, Alex and Jared, share. This is what he wants with Stevie.

Stevie holds his heart, but Clark struggles to convince her of his sincerity simply because she can't let go of her past enough to have faith to truly trust another. He is beset with jealousy over his best friends for the first time. Everything looks so easy for Alex and Jared while every step forward he takes with Stevie, seems to result in two steps back.
