After recovering from a shooting that took the lives of his best friends, Seth Hall returns to his hometown for the first time in eleven years with his two children in tow. Intent on setting up a happy, stable life for them, he vows not to allow his past to intervene with their future. That is until Jared, the boy who had broken his heart all those years ago, returns to his life a full grown man who knows exactly what he wants…Seth.

Jared Stewart thought he had lost his only chance to be with Seth after a series of misunderstandings and mistakes. When Seth finally comes home and back into Jared’s life, Jared vows to do anything it takes to keep him there. However, while Jared and Seth grow closer, they discover that not everyone is so happy for them.
Will they be finally able to make a life for themselves together? Or will they be torn apart again, by people they thought they could trust?

Prism recently reviewed Always Been You. You can find the review here.

Favorite Characters:

Ten favorite characters who are not yours and why.

  1. Carson – Stephani Hecht’s Lost Shifter series. He is this gothic, don’t give a damn smartass. I just love him.
  2. Billy – Stormy Glenn’s Blaecleah Brothers. After everything he has been through he can still smile.
  3. Logan – Mary Clames’ Change of Heart series. That man has the patients of a saint. Lol
  4. Jake – Cardeno C.’s Home series. He is so protective of those he loves. The kind of man that would go above and beyond.
  5. Joe – Lori Foster’s Winston Brothers and Visitation series. He is a mixture of gung hoe badass and sweet yet overprotective teddy bear.
  6. Raphel – Nalini Singh’s Archangel series. The man exudes power and sexuality.
  7. Elena – Nalini Singh’s Archangel series. She is kickass and can not only put up with a man like Raphel but stand toe to toe with him.
  8. Vishous – JR Ward’s BDB series. The man is such a contradictorily, has been through hell, and is not only still standing but does so while kicking ass.
  9. Jack – RJ Scott’s Texas series. His ability to love but also forgive just about everything makes him a hell of a character.
  10. Tammy – Laurann Dohner’s New Species series. I love that she is tough yet is still able to hold on to her femininity. Her ability to put larger and scarier men in their place doesn’t detract from what makes her a woman.


    Straightening his back, he met Jared’s gaze.

    “Fine. Let’s take a seat and get this over with, shall we?”

    “Is that the way you talk to all of your clients? Cause I have to say, I’m surprised you get much business then,” drawled Jared.

    Ignoring the comment, Seth led them to one of the booths. He cast a glance towards the kitchen, but Sal seemed to be preoccupied. Maybe telling the man to just ‘go for it’ hadn’t been a smart move. Something told him things were going to cost more than he thought.

    Taking a seat opposite one another on the old scuffed booth with weathered red leather seating, that he absently noted to himself had to be added to the ever growing list of things that needed replacing, Seth launched straight into professional mode. He needed details to come up with something that the future bride wanted and that’s all he was focused on. At no time did he notice how good Jared looked, or how muscular he had gotten. Seth hadn’t even taken note of Jared’s soft pink lips or his large firm hands.


    Not at all.

  1. I’m proof second chance love works. My partner & I were together for a few years when I was a teenager. We caught up again when I was 24. It wasn’t suppose to get serious again but 15yrs & 2 kids later we are still making it work & are still happy. 🙂

  2. I’m reading Mary Calmes’s Change of Heart series right now, and yeah, patience of a saint is Logan Church through and through. LOL

    As for second chances… Well, I’m still working on the first one. 🙂

  3. I believe in second chances. I have never had a second chance at love and don’t really have a need for one at present. I have had a second chance at a friendship I thought was lost. My first love was my high school sweetheart. After school we lost touch. Over the last 28 years I have heard about him but really have not had contact. At our 30th class reunion we reconnected, I found out he didnt have contact because he thought I was angry at him. (The reason is he came out as gay a few years after school and he thought his friends would hate him so he avoided all contact with us all) We talked a long time at the reunion and now talk to him at least once a week.
