Gabriel, my sweet, extremely intense Gabriel was.. That man knew what he wanted and went after it. He might have went about it in what some wou I wasn't sure what to expect when I first started reading His Kind of Love. He might have went about it in what some would say in a creepy way, but not once did I ever doubt his love for Joel. The writing was superb, and flowed nicely. This is one of those books that you're sad you've read it because you want to read it again for the first time. I will definitely be reading future books from this author.

I liked the possessiveness and obsessiveness Gabriel had for Joel honestly, mainly because we got to see his thoughts about it and what he thought of the situation he was in as well.
This book ended HEA. I am definitely going to look out for more other works by this author. Mar 11, Fatimama rated it it was amazing. OTT possessive with a massive dose of stalking? Gabe is borderline creepy in his stalking ways that he even has a cam in the bathroom of his house and he watches Joel take a bath and play with himself. View all 4 comments. Jun 06, Candice rated it it was ok Shelves: Messing with his house? Moving in across the way from his grandma that he never sees?
Listening devices on his phone? I especially didn't find it sexy or romantic when Christian Grey did it. I sure as hell didn't with Gabriel Hunter, either!

I will mostly likely not be moving on in this series. Feb 26, Ben Willis rated it did not like it. This is her first book, and overall, she did ok writing wise, but the plot was not good for me. I found it very hard to relate to a 19 year old, and found even more Rating: I found it very hard to relate to a 19 year old, and found even more unrealistic that Joel knew what a relationship was and how he just accepted Gabriel after everything was just wrong.
I love the age gap stories, but this was not good for me. I found myself shivering from the idea especially after Gabriel's omission. Joel finds himself without shelter after a chain of bad luck and ends up in the home, and arms of Gabriel. Gabriel is just ecstatic to have him there, which adds to the ick factor for me.
He's older, and after many intimate moments, Joel finds out that Gabriel has been watching him for years. She tried to play it off as innocent, a guardian angel form, but come on, Gabriel was quick to jump him once he had him in his house. The idea just felt wrong to me. I felt as if Gabriel was a perv feaning after him, and waiting for him to get into his clutches. Then we get the big bombshell, he's his step uncle as if this wasn't gross enough. I'm ok with stalker stories if done differently, this was NOT romantic.
This was creepy in my opinion. It made me feel sad for Joel. And don't even get me started on the virgin part, and Gab's reaction. Was his cameras not working that night? Did he miss it? It was just weird and I found myself needing a shower to wash this story off me. The sex scenes were repetitive, and there were a lot.
The ones after the reveal, I had to skip.

Couldn't read them and I actually felt dirty for reading the ones before. Why did I give one star: Because it wasn't for me. Maybe it works for others, but I don't like the obsessive adult to child dynamic. This might have worked better with a different age gap. The author has potential.
She needs to work on her writing so it flows better, and needs a good editor to catch the errors and plot holes. There is a difference between romance and obsession. This just didn't work for me. I hope it does for you. Overall, obviously I didn't like this book and I had to delete it off my kindle to clear my conscience. I would never tell anyone not to read, but just know there are things that might trigger you and creep you out. Unless you like that, then more power to you. I do want to say congrats, and this is by no means meant to belittle the author. It's hard work putting out a book and I commend her for this.
This is a me verses the story thing. I would read another book by this author if the idea was something I was interested in, but I won't read another age gap by this author because I'll always be reminded of this one. Jan 09, Amy Aislin rated it it was ok Shelves: This book is getting amazing reviews, so I think this is a case of it's-not-you-it's-me.
I had quite a bit of trouble getting into this book. The dialogue was stilted and slightly old-fashioned. I think Gabriel was supposed to come off as the sophisticated, possessive older hero, but the only vibe I got from him was a creepy stalker one and I kept telling Joel to run away. And because Gabriel and Joel came together the This book is getting amazing reviews, so I think this is a case of it's-not-you-it's-me.
And because Gabriel and Joel came together the way they did, with Gabriel orchestrating everything, I never felt a real connection between them. To me it read more like obsession on Gabriel's side and a desire for anyone to love him on Joel's side. There were other things that didn't work, like Joel's parents showing up out of the blue to create conflict. I didn't like Joel's friend Athena.
I found her over the top and I disliked how she took it upon herself to reveal Joel's past to Gabriel, which wasn't her place at all. And the pacing was odd. I found myself skimming huge chunks. Like I said, this wasn't the book for me, and I feel awful giving a 2-star rating to a first-time author. That being said, don't let my thoughts influence you in any way.
I highly encourage you to give this book a shot, because you never know. It might work for you. It appears to have worked for everyone else! Jan 23, Nsi rated it really liked it. Would I be ok if this happened to me in reality! Well written and well thought out cos stalker books are so not my cup of tea but this well this was well done!!!
Group 1 Crew - His Kind of Love Lyrics
I loved Gabriel and Joel, be warned the review does have spoilers Joel is alone and he's lonely. His family abandoned him years before, because he was gay. He works in a very quiet book store. Listening to old records, reading old books, collecting family bibles from other peoples families.
He lives his life on the edges of everything, connecting only with his best friend Athena. His apartment floods and he is forced to seek help from his estranged grandmother. Discovering she has four cats he can I loved Gabriel and Joel, be warned the review does have spoilers Joel is alone and he's lonely.
Discovering she has four cats he can't stay with her because he is allergic. He feels totally lost when Gabriel, the man across the hall offers to let him stay in his apartment. Joel, confused as to why a stranger would make such an offer, accepts, feeling he has no other options. Older, very polished, wealthy and he becomes the caretaker Joel wants. The lover he needs. Not knowing Gabriel has been watching him for years, obsessed with him. This is where it turned a little creepy. Stalking is scary and not to be taken lightly.
At first I had questions about the subject because it really bothered me. I went into it not knowing how it could turn into a viable romance. Fortunately the author has taken a dark premise and turned it into an intriguing love story. Can you fall in love with your stalker? Can you forgive him for years of watching and following your every move?
Can you forgive his total manipulation of your life? Can you get over the very important truth he kept from you. Read the story of Joel and Gabriel to find out. Jan 19, Megan rated it liked it Shelves: Joel, a vulnerable young man with nowhere to go ends up on Gabriel's doorstep and unwittingly opens the doors to his future.
But will that future be rosy or full of fear and disappointment? Joel has been abandoned and a disappointment his entire life. He has one friend and a job he enjoys but his days are quiet and unassuming and quite simple. A prospect for a date has him excited but quickly turns into a series of unfortunate events leading right to the very person who could ease th Joel, a vulnerable young man with nowhere to go ends up on Gabriel's doorstep and unwittingly opens the doors to his future. A prospect for a date has him excited but quickly turns into a series of unfortunate events leading right to the very person who could ease that loneliness.
Gabriel has been waiting for someone to ease the pain of loneliness for years. When one bedraggled but very dear young man takes his offer of a safe, warm, dry place to stay he's sure that Joel is the one. But Gabriel has secrets. Ones that, if revealed, could send Joel running and Gabriel won't take that chance so he hold those secrets as close as he can.
Until that choice is taken away from him. There are quite a few downs and a couple ups in this story. I love Joel's earnestness and his willingness to forgive and love. He has a big heart and is very, very sweet. He's also very trusting and quite naive. Gabriel is generous, full of love, a bit damaged, and also quite earnest.
Together they have the potential to be excellent partners. There is also a huge creepy factor to this story that I have a hard time getting behind. Yes, all's well that ends well, but it doesn't make the situation okay or even healthy. Gabriel needs some serious counseling. The kind of love that I was expecting was BDSM type stuff that might have been a bit much for the sweet, youthful Joel. The instances of self-love hinted at Joel being receptive to a rougher, more specific type of loving.
Yet that wasn't the case. What Gabriel's type of love is is actually a bit disturbing no matter how deep the love it comes from is.
His Kind of Love
Athena said it best: There's no denying what he did was shitty, and a lot creepy, and maybe a smidge romantic, but mostly creepy. Willingly read and reviewed this ARC from the author. Jan 19, Light rated it really liked it Shelves: Congrats to the author on her debut novel. I will be checking her next ones. The story wasn't what I first imagined, the knight in shining armor that rescues poor little cutie. Gabriel is a real stalker, a very hot one at that I think the reason I didn't dislike him was because we know why he's doing the things he's doing.
That, however, doesn't mean he isn't creepy at times, but still very hot. While Joel takes things very easy, even when he is a little a bit nervous. There are some twists I didn't expected, actually when I first started it, it I didn't think Gabriel was "good enough" but throughout the story we are shown his past and he's a remarkable person with some issues like everybody else. Overall, I enjoyed it and I hope we get next book really soon. Then this is the book for you.
Definitely NOT what I expected, but in the end it made sense. Joel needed loving, to be seen, to feel treasured. Gabriel may have had me nervous during the first part of the book, but once his story was told, you could not help but love and admire him. Both had parallel lives. Both faltered because of one man. But they became better through understanding never too late , through love always wanting and through knowing that beyond it all, the prize was at the end of the rainbow each other.
I voluntarily and honestly reviewed this book without bias or persuasion from the author. One thing I really dread is reading an ARC and not liking it. I like creepy but this confused me and then drifted into too much for my tastes quickly. This is more about obsession than anything else. I thought it jumped too fast into Joel feeling comfortable with Gabriel, especially since he seemed to feel uncomfortable at first. I had to skim most of the sex because it was repetitive. The stalkerish vibes were over the top and I never felt a connection. Jul 09, Lori rated it really liked it Shelves: Although Kate Hawthorne hasn't made this a series, it seems that you could read her books as of now in chronological order because they are in the same universe, but I could be wrong.
Anyway, I have to say how much I enjoyed this book. Joel was a sweet, sensitive soul but fortunately, he had a fire inside of him to not be consumed completely by all the shit life threw at him. Talking about consu Although Kate Hawthorne hasn't made this a series, it seems that you could read her books as of now in chronological order because they are in the same universe, but I could be wrong. Talking about consumed though, Gabriel was definitely consumed with Joel. The fact that he stalked him was not cool, but it made for a good story. The story snagged my attention and had me needing to know what was going to happen next.
There are so many layers and nuances to this story that I hesitate to say too much for fear of giving something away. I enjoyed getting to know these characters and learning their story. I received a copy of this manuscript from the author, my review has been voluntarily submitted. Jan 30, Raganna rated it did not like it. I tried, I really did, making several efforts reading it.
