Release Date: November 8, 2016


Blurb: 

Gabriel Wyatt is a big city Detective living in a small Ohio town. He expects a peaceful existence once he moves from Miami, Florida, but that’s the last thing he finds. Instead, Gabe discovers murder, mayhem, and one smart-mouthed stylist he can’t get out of his head.

Josh “Jazz” Roman is a small-town business owner with big dreams and an attitude to match. He finds himself in the middle of a case that brings the dreamy detective to the front door of his Curl Up and Dye salon. Josh learns that the biggest threat to him isn’t a killer; it’s a man who wants something from him that he vowed to never give again - his heart.

Both men deny that there’s something between them, even though they’re drawn together like magnets. Can Gabe convince Josh to let down his guard or will Josh let past hurts destroy his chance at a happy future?

Dyeing to be Loved is the first book in the Curl Up and Dye Mystery series. These books are written to be read in order. They contain sexually explicit material and are intended for adults 18 and older. 


**Note from author: Gabe and Josh have a prequel that was previously published in the Nut Case Love Anthology. That book is no longer for sale and their story has been returned to me. You can read it for free on my blog at aimeenicolewalker.blogspot.com. The story and blog post are titled Fatal Reaction. 



Review
3.5 - 4 Stars

I would say this book falls between a 3.5 - 4 stars! It was quite frustrating at time because Josh was a little over the top with his mood swings and back and forth the way he treated Gabe and Gabe just takes it. Once Josh gets over himself then the story becomes more entertaining. I did love Josh's sass and the patience Gabe had with him. As for the mystery part of it, I didn't really enjoy that aspect but it was still entertaining overall. I definitely want to finish off this series because Josh and Gabe are starting to grow on me and I want to see their HEA!

OMG! It just gets better and better. I'm so in love with this author. Aimee Nicole Walker has got me HOOKED!!! The anticipation of getting to the conclusion of these investigations have got me biting my thumb nail and bouncing my knee like "WHO DONE IT?!" LOL.
I love the way this author keeps you guessing at every turn. The mystery and suspense alone will have you consumed. Add in the hottness and cuteness that is Josh and Gabe and she has me totally sucked in. I love stories that have relationships that are ever growing and the love between Josh and Gabe just gets stronger and stronger. They're just so fucking sexy and adorable at the same time. That Josh! I'm so in love with Josh and need someone like him as my best friend. :)


Not only do you get sucked in by the MC's but the secondary characters will have you intrigued as well. Aimee Nicole Walker is definitely becoming one of my favorite MM authors. Look out cause I'm going on an Aimee Nicole Walker binge read.

I'm a wife and mother of three teenage kids. I've been married to the same wonderful man for twenty years. I've decided that if I can survive raising three kids then I can survive anything!! I haven't uttered the Mama's curse yet, but it could happen any day now. You know the one..."I hope you have a child just like you someday."

I'm an avid reader and lover of all things romance. I've spent my entire adult life waiting to follow my dreams of becoming a writer. One day this past summer, I decided to just do it. No more wishing and hoping. I haven't quit my day job, but that is my ultimate goal...make a living telling stories of love. 

I write contemporary gay fiction. I hope you will love reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.

Title: Unscripted Love (Road to Blissville #1)
A Curl Up and Dye Mystery Spin-Off

Release Date: July 11, 2017


Blurb:

Kyle Vaughn had three goals in life: become a vet, find the man of his dreams, and start a family. He easily checked off the first item on the list when he took over his grandfather’s veterinary practice. Too bad he wasn’t as lucky in love. 

Chaz Hamilton took a leap of faith when he decided to pursue a career in writing, but one best seller didn’t mean he could quit his day job. All work and no play threatened to make Chaz a very dull man when the only romantic action he saw was in the pages of his manuscript. Too bad he couldn’t write his own happily every after.

Circumstances pushed the two men together, and one magical kiss beneath fireworks and stars changed everything. Kyle knew his luck had finally turned around and Chaz found a man far better than any book boyfriend ever written. There was just one problem. Chaz has kept a secret from Kyle that could ruin their chance at a beautiful life together. 

Kyle and Chaz learn that the best laid plans often go awry, the heart has a mind of its own, and the greatest love is unscripted. 

Unscripted Love is a standalone book, but Kyle Vaughn and Chaz Hamilton first appear in the Curl Up and Dye Mysteries series. This book contains sexually explicit material and is intended for mature adults 18 and older.
