The Fix (Whitetail Rock #2) (Pre-Romancelandia #1) [Nik & Jurgen] by Anne Tenino

This is also a free ultra short novella (Download from here) which is a "pre" read before "Too stupid to live". As I wrote in the review of the previous novella Sam, a side character here is the MC in "Too stupid to live", yet you don't have to read this one or the previous one to "get" the next one (and I'm saying that without reading it - YET) since it just gives you the background of how Nik and Jurgen came together (as I understand they are side characters in Sam's story). 

This one is a year after Nik and Jurgen met, they are now living together and Jurgen is worried that Nik is going to break up with him after hearing a phone conversation Nik has with Sam. 

What he plans out is down right stupid which was kinda disappointing.. In the end it worked out but Jurgen came as TOTALLY insecure which wasn't a nice view of him.. 

I didn't think this one is going to be something special and I honestly didn't think I'd like it that much since I couldn't be bothered with the two main characters but it was nice getting Jurgen's POV (in the previous one we only got Nik's) too bad he was kinda disappointing both in what goes on in his brain (the insecurity) as well as what he thought would make Nik change his mind.

I'll be reading "Too stupid to live" next which I've read great reviews of. Don't recommend this one and the previous one though, keep that in mind....

Romancelandia (+ Whitetail Rock) is a MM Series by Anne Tenino

Each book in the series tells us of one couple. The couples have some connection to one another. In the first two short novellas we meet Nik and Jurgen. In the first installment of the series Jurgen's cousin - Ian - and Nik's best friend - Sam - meet and fall in love and the third one is of Ian's new assistant - Dalton (who is also the brother of his other worker Andy) - and Ian's homophobic college friend Tierney (who is you can guess is just afraid of his own sexual orientation).

While I didn't really like the first two short novellas of Nik and Jurgen I LOVED the the two full novels in this series. The characters are so REAL and their struggles also feels, well, realistic! No one is perfect, and they aren't the macho macho men type. I love how Anne deals with emotions and how the story is told from both the MC's POV giving us the full view into the characters' mind and heart. 

I'm not sure if there are going to be more installment to this series, I HOPE there will. I can guess that Miller needs to have his story being told and maybe the other cop Dave (?) from Whitetail. Anyhow I'll be reading more by Anne FOR SURE. Amazing writer.
