    Kudos to Christina Lee for taking a leap into the MM genre I'm always worried that an author who writes primarily MF romance won't grasp the nuances of a relationship between two men but Lee did well developing both MCs tattoo artist Cory and skateboarded Jude Cory gives off a happy laidback vibe but he battles demons everyday Having inherited a short term boyfriend's poorly trained dog Cory does the best he can by his two pups and his grandma He hates the rain and crushes on beautiful aloof Jude Jude is a man of few words He has things to hide and hangs around the town's motorcycle club Disciples of the Road But Jude is drawn to talkative Cory and the two men bond when Cory works on a large tattoo on Jude's back I liked the long slow burn between the men This is a moderately steamy story with some sensual and tender scenes I liked Cory's grandma as well as the other secondary characters including Cory's friends Emmy and Dex and Vaughn the bartender I love dogs so having not one but three dogs in a book made me happy Jude has a real connection with animals and I love that in a man Some of the writing was a little awkward; there were a few typos but I read an ARC so hopefully they will be fixed in the final text At one point Cory's penis is referred to as a stiff nub cringes A nub is a short lump or protrusion and not a word anyone wants to associate with a cock Ever I also wasn't sold on Jude's mysterious past Some of the timing didn't add up for me and the motorcycle club felt staged Plus I'm not one into romanticizing thugs Jude's story is sad and angsty but there were a few contradictions that niggled at me and I thought perhaps the final solution was too easy I could tell this book was part of a series but it read fine as a standalone I would be very interested in reading Vaughn and Smoke's story Overall this was a pleasant read with a sweet romance and a nice HEA

    One of the few Christina Lee books I've not read Kickflip is an interesting blend of new adult Motorcycle Club and love after traumaI enjoyed pretty much all of it it never got overly angsty the stresses and traumas felt real and believable and I loved the UST which built up slowly between Cory and JudeThe big dramatic moment fit the Motorcycle Club narrative and I didn't find it beyond the realms of possibility Loved the secondary characters and the setting and I'm planning on heading into the rest of the series after I'm done with my ARC commitments #ARC kindly received from the author in return for an honest and unbiased review

    45 Stand Strong Stars ARC provided per publisher via Netgalley in exchange for honest reviewI admit to being a bit nervous going into this read That being said Christina Lee's first take at MM was so well done that I applaud both her and her whole story start to finishThis is the story of Cory Easton and Jude York Two men with past tragedies that have shaped them into who they are Cory is known for his talking and his big open heart He is a loyal friend and doting grandson Working as a tattooist he has seen his fair share of emotional turbulence but none has him as peaked as the quiet Jude York Jude is a British bad boy skater of sorts Appearing in their town out of nowhere with a sketchy past he has a look to drool overWhile Cory is living everyday in physical pain from an accident that literally took everything from him Jude is hiding in plain sight from his past as well as his present While sneaking glances at the skate park and chasing a rogue dog fate seems to put Cory on a collision course with the silent beauty but the small talk is minute leaving Cory in a world of confusion and lust Perhaps the next few weeks of private time with Jude will answer some of Cory's questions as it seems that Jude is on the schedule for a new tattooWhat Christina Lee delivered was an emotionally tight love story shrouded in mystery and lust Cory and Jude do a fabulous dance of attraction where there is always an edge of uncertainty yet palpable want pouring out of the pages With visible changes in breathing quickening pulses and felt arousal it would seem that Cory and Jude know where the other stands But can Jude open himself up to Cory? Is Cory strong enough to stick by a man who may be dangerous? Is either safe in each other's arms?This was a really well written MM romance If you are a lover of the genre then this has enough sexy heat and intimacy to make you pant If this is the first time experiencing the love story between two men then you are in luck Jude and Cory's tale is really beautiful It has a well developed friendship that strengthens the attraction There is angst and intimacy and again a realistic feel to them falling I completely enjoyed this read and highly recommend to all my reading friends

    25 starsFor a book that has a mysterious skater with scars on his back who don't talk much There You Stand failed to pull me in I wonder if it's because I only 'read' this from Cory's sole perspective as a narrator and I miss everything that happens in Jude's mind For example that ending view spoilerwhere Jude is taken hide spoiler

    Originally posted at Smexybooks Quote You’re the only real thing in my lifeCory Easton is a tattoo artist at Raw Ink and has just gotten out of a relationship that lost him his boyfriend but gained him a dog Openly gay and still coping with a past tragedy he finds his eye turned by a gorgeous reclusive tatted skateboarder who haunts the park where he walks his dog Chopper When Chopper decides one day to make a break for it it’s Cory’s crush who comes to the rescueJude York keeps to himself for very good reasons When he helps Cory catch his dog a tentative friendship begins to form But Jude is a complex mystery and the rumors swirling around him has Cory on edge as he notices Jude’s ties to the local motorcycle club As Cory and Jude spend time together and their attraction grows by leaps and bounds Cory begins to wonder if he can handle what Jude’s secrets may reveal Because Cory has already been devastated once and Jude could very well be the one that finally destroys himThere You Stand by Christina Lee is #5 in her Between Breaths series but can easily read as a stand alone A debut MM romance hits all the right feelz buttons as Lee pens a bittersweet romance between two people who are carrying some serious emotional and physical pain A slow steady start filled with sexual tension and tentative chemistry allows than ample time for our boys to meet grow a viable realistic friendship and eventually gain the courage to take their relationship to a new level Intriguing subplots and interesting secondary characters takes the story beyond a simple romance; adding some delicious drama and suspenseLee does a fabulous job of balancing the romance with the mystery surrounding Jude Strong writing and a steady pace allows us to follow along with no confusion She doesn’t rush the protagonist’s relationship allowing it to grow in a realistic manner as she slowly reveals the background information needed to understand where both men are at in their lives and the reasons they are hesitant to completely open up”We were both hiding”A lush and steamy sexual relationship gives us open scenes with a firm emotional base I enjoyed that Lee doesn’t rush this aspect and use the bed as an instant solvent for Cory and Jude’s issues There are strong external factors that complicate this relationship that demand resolution before anyone can move forward Lee draws this particular storyline out thoroughly giving it the seriousness it demands“Goddamn it why do I have to play guessing games with you?”“Because I don’t want your life to be in dangersimply from associating with me”“It’s too late I’m already involved”A dynamic secondary cast brings in people from previous installments while introducing new faces I love the camaraderie that Cory enjoys with his fellow employees Lee gives Cory a full bodied social life that plays out well against the solitary nature of Jude’s The inclusion of the MC is slightly predictable in the setting they are used but their characterization and actions ring true and gives clues to possible future storylines Another MM? We can always hope The conflict resolves easily and off screen I would have enjoyed interaction with the villain As it was all information concerning him is second hand so the gravity of Jude’s past and current situation didn’t flesh out as dramatically as I think Lee intended Regardless There You Stand is an engaging story that will appeal to lovers of romance across the board I look forward to reading from her in the future RATING B

    I really really liked this Loved Jude and Cory so much The sex was hot and the angst was right The action plot wasn't necessarily my usual taste but the rest of the story was just right for me Crossover done right Can't wait to hopefully see Smoke Vaughn If not I'll be crushed
