Book Recommendation + Review - Between the Sheets by Devon McCormack

I discovered this author through his collab with Riley Hart on the Metropolis Series. I fell in those boys so much I had to see what this Devon was like individually. So, this is the first book I picked up and man let me tell ya..... WOW! What a great first impression to a new-to-me author. I will definitely be looking into more of this author's individual work but this book was amazing!!

Title: Between the Sheets
Author: Devon McCormack
Publication Date: February 20, 2017
Genre: MM Romance


“I fought one war on the battlefield. Now I fight another in my mind.” 

Jay is always on the run—always looking for the next place to start a new life. But no matter how much he moves, he can’t escape the painful memories that haunt him. As he settles into his latest job in the warehouse at a glass bottle factory, he finds himself the target of his co-workers’ teasing. When he takes a stand against one of the bullies, a fight breaks out. His boss, a war vet named Reese, steps in, and Jay accidentally shoves him to the ground, revealing Reese’s prosthetic leg. Jay’s sure he’s gonna lose his job, but he’s blown away when he’s given another shot. 

Reese is annoyed by the new guy. Jay is reckless and temper prone. Maybe Reese shouldn't have given him a second chance, but his attitude reminds him of his war buddy—a guy who he cared deeply for and who he lost under tragic circumstances. He just hopes Jay doesn’t let him down. 

When an accident in the factory triggers one of Reese’s PTSD episodes, Jay returns the favor by being there for him and keeping anyone else from discovering the incident. Reese wants to move on and forget it ever happened, but Jay won’t let it go. And as much as Reese tries to keep his distance, there’s a heat—a passion—between them that he can’t resist. It leads them to the bedroom again and again, but Reese quickly realizes they’ve ignited more than the sparks they create between the sheets. And despite the tough-guy fa├žade Jay puts on, underneath there’s a soul just as tortured and hurt as he is. He’s starting to fall for Jay, but he knows there’s a dark storm lurking in the back of his own mind—a storm that will return one day and destroy the beautiful connection they share. 

Between These Sheets is a standalone romance novel with no cheating, no cliffhangers, and a happy ending.

5 Stars

Absolutely loved this book! Emotions flow right off the pages. The emotions that this author was able to portray with PTSD made the story relatable and made the story feel so real. I loved it from beginning to end. I could not put it down. Read it in one sitting. The chemistry between the MC's was undeniable and all around hot, steamy and sexy between these sheets!!! Great job Mr. McCormack!

~ About the Author ~ 

Devon McCormack spends most of his time hiding in his lair, adventuring in paranormal worlds with his island of misfit characters. A good ole Southern boy, McCormack grew up in the Georgian suburbs with his two younger brothers and an older sister. At a very young age, he spun tales the old fashioned way, lying to anyone and everyone he encountered. He claimed he was an orphan. He claimed to be a king from another planet. He claimed to have supernatural powers. He has since harnessed this penchant for tall tales by crafting whole worlds where he can live out whatever fantasy he chooses.

A gay man himself, McCormack focuses on gay male characters, adding to the immense body of literature that chooses to represent and advocate gay men's presence in media. His body of work ranges from erotica to young adult, so readers should check the synopses of his books before purchasing so that they know what they're getting into.
