Part of Book Series: A Matter of Time (Book 5)

Summary: Jory Harcourt doesn’t have to go looking for trouble. Wherever he goes, it seems to find him—particularly when his partner, Sam Kage, is working undercover on a federal task force.

After the recession forces him to close his business, Jory goes to work as a matchmaker and event planner. From there, it’s only a matter of time before his big mouth and up-front attitude make him the rope in a tug-of-war between a trust fund baby and a drug-smuggling criminal. Then, as if that situation weren’t delicate enough, Jory’s undercover lover shows up working for the smuggler.

Between the men who want him and the men who just want him dead, Chicago is getting a little crowded for Jory, so on the advice of his brother, his boyfriend, and the FBI task force, he heads for Hawaii… where a serious accident threatens his quality of life. Can Sam and Jory keep the faith and prove that their relationship really is bulletproof?

Post’s Author Opinion:
Note: This is a personal opinion, it does not reflect YaoiOtaku’s official position towards the novel.

If you’re excited to know more about Jory and Sam, then behold, book #5 from A Matter of Time Series.

Another three years have passed since the last installment, so we thought Jory finally learns to keep himself out of trouble. Wrong. He is a trouble magnet, so it comes with the whole package. What’s good is that he’s a little better at escaping danger (that he brings upon himself without realizing) and probably sassier than ever.

I do have a few least favorite parts in this book. The status of Sam and Jory’s relationship is somewhat confusing. I know some people don’t care about labels, but the two MCs obviously did in the previous book, so I wonder what is up with the misleading terms in this one. Then there’s the way Jory handles his ex. I think he could be more firm with his rejections. That goes without saying about his new “friends” as well (but then there’s no story left to write there, lol).

All in all, it is a good addition to the series. There’s action, romance and suspense with a very tiny dash of jokes thrown here and there. You can skip this book altogether and jump straight to the next one, but why would you do that?

About the author


A former otaku, I have retired from manga and anime and found my love in M/M novels. I have a soft spot for angst with happily ever after, but a little critical on cliches. I like uncomplicated stories, a little hint of mystery and crime as well as something that is not too heavy on the drama.

I read and write mostly in English. Unfortunately, since I started late with my English studies, I am still working on it. I'm pretty much well versed in context, but don't count too much on my grammar.
