Everything about Sean stirs Peter’s protective instincts, but he never anticipated falling for someone so hell-bent on running from him. Asking for help is a bitter pill for Peter to swallow, but if he can’t, how can he expect Sean to accept his help—and his love—in turn?

When a crisis finally brings Aiden to his breaking point, accepting support from Marco is a gamble, but it could be just what Aiden needs to turn his luck around.

I received this book for free from Gay Romance Reviews in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

For this review, I will be talking about the series as a whole and not focusing on just one specific book or each book at length.

The Seattle Stories: Books 1-3 focuses on 3 different couples centering around Ben/Morgan, Sean/Peter, and Aiden/Marco. All three books together were over 900 pages so it took me a little longer than usual to read the entire three books. There was a lot of content and world building taking place.

After Ben (book one) and Aiden’s Luck (book three) to me were more enjoyable compared to Saving Sean (book two). But of course, that is just a personal preference. I think of the three books I really enjoyed Aiden’s Luck the most. I really enjoyed the chemistry between Marco and Aiden.

Each book had its own ups and downs. Dealing with relationships, and the author made it all reasonable and believable. Ben was dealing with the death of his partner, Sean was dealing with what was left of his father’s estate, and Aiden was dealing with the aftermath of his father’s death and supporting his family.

Overall the box set was an excellent read. Each book was a great length. By the end of each book, the major plot had been revealed and solved. Characters from each book were present in the others. If you enjoy M M romance then this series would be great for you.
