Middle of Somewhere: Book One Daniel Mulligan is tough, snarky, and tattooed, hiding his self-consciousness behind sarcasm. Daniel has never fit inânot at home in Philadelphia with his auto mechanic father and brothers, and not at school where his Ivy League classmates looked down on him. Now, Daniel's relieved to have a job at a small college in Holiday, Northern Michigan, but he's a city boy through and through, and it's clear that this small town is one more place he won't fit in. Rex Vale clings to routine to keep loneliness at bay: honing his muscular body, perfecting his recipes, and making custom furniture. Rex has lived in Holiday for years, but his shyness and imposing size have kept him from connecting with people. When the two men meet, their chemistry is explosive, but Rex fears Daniel will be another in a long line of people to leave him, and Daniel has learned that letting anyone in can be a fatal weakness. Just as they begin to break down the walls keeping them apart, Daniel is called home to Philadelphia, where he discovers a secret that changes the way he understands everything.… (lisätietoja)

It is ME! not the BOOK!

Who is a quitter at 85% close to the end with 70 more pages to read:



um....um....um...okay...um...um....ME!



Time of Audio-book death 1:55 minutes. The narrator has a good voice. But he had the same voice for all the characters even the female characters. 😣😣😏

So i switched to reading.

Time of reading death 85%, i just couldn't take it anymore, i tried but being in Daniel's head is um...um...um....um... exhausting.

I loved Rex , even though he was too perfect, but i he was sweet, loving and just damn! adorable.

I felt the book was too long, filed with Daniel's repetitive thoughts. If all the repetitive words and paragraph were to be removed, this book wold have been 250 pages instead of 350 pages.

I liked Daniel a tiny bit to make it to 85% and then i couldn't stand him anymore. He was ok but he sounded like a teenager, not a 30 year old professor. And being in his head Oi! it was ok until um...its started um.... being um.... you know

“ Um, he’s…. Well, he’s….”

“Um, I’m not actually sure

Um.. you know

Our um encounter

Um because she is terrified

Um, I mean

You look um, edgy

Um, just in my shoe

Um hi, I say

Oh wait um

Ok wow, um..

Um, I am sorry

Um is that true


The UM became too much, and when i found myself starting sentences with um... i knew i had to stop.



The Sex was good until it became repetitive and boring. Um... i can't believe, um.. i am saying that. When it is contemporary and not erotica, i want to read about the um.. Romance not Sex on almost every page.

The side characters were so unlikable especially Daniel's family.

In the beginning i thought Ginger was Daniel's imaginary friend. It so happens she is the best friend. I liked her until she became too much. It was Ginger this, Ginger that.

Anyway for a debut novel it was ok, but too much, there was too much of everything.

Then again it is ME! not the Book, this book has received so many 5 stars.

I will um.. just leave this um.. here

Rex arches his back against my assault on his nipples and throws his head back. I kiss his neck and take his weeping erection in my hand.

I loved this story.
It's a bit slow-paced, but I loved Daniel's voice so it was easy to read.
Looking forward to see how Colin is redeemed and I hope Leo & Will will get a story too! ( )

Is Roan Parrish even capable of writing a bad or even mediocre book? So far nothing that I have read by her has indicated that such a thing is even a possibility. Anyone that is not homophobic and is looking for some really over the top romances should give her books a try. In a small town in northern Michigan we meet Daniel Mulligan who is a tough, inked-up guy with a sharp tongue on the outside, but it’s only a cover for his insecurities brought on by a lifetime of not fitting in, particularly with his family. Daniel has three tough “manly” older brothers and a father that… while not exactly ashamed of him…never took the time or the effort to see how special his youngest son actually was. When Daniel lands a job as an English professor in a rural town in northern Michigan, a place where everyone knows everyone else…he feels that it’s just another place where he’ll be an outsider. An accident that stranded Daniel in the middle of what he thought of as nowhere …introduces him to Rex Vale, a strapping flannel-clad man with a kind demeanor who took Daniel’s breath away. When their paths cross again, their chemistry is explosive…but in order for them to have a future they both must learn to trust. I can’t say enough good things about this authors writing. It is beautifully phrased and can readily bring tears or laughter to the reader. The quality of the storytelling is right up there among the best I’ve read. It’s charming, delightful and just plain fun. Oh…the small town just outside of Travers City, Michigan where the story takes place…is as real as it gets. (Book contains explicit sex) ( )

I wanted to like this more than I actually did. The author may live in Philly, but they are clearly a transplant, or just the most out of tune Philadelphian ever. But that's not really all that important to the plot/story. It was just little things that bugged me because it's my home town and I wanted this book to be great. It's written in.....wait for it.... First. Person. Sigh.

The protagonists were good. Daniel was a little jaded and paranoid, but once the story delves into his home life and experience with romance, it kind of makes perfect sense. And Rex was a big teddy bear; definitely fits the cliche too good to be true. There were some fun characters and some really annoying characters and I wanted to murder all of Daniel's family--they were the absolute worst.

Daniel, a gay man from Philly, takes a position as a professor at a college in Michigan. He met Rex after his interview after hitting a dog with his car and trying to walk the injured animal to help while he was injured himself. The run into Rex who immediately helps them. After caring for the dog and making her as comfortable as possible until she could be taken to a vet in the morning, Rex tries to care for Daniel who doesn't realize that he's pretty banged up from the accident. They have an instant connection and kiss, but nothing much happens beyond that. The duo don't see one another again until Daniel has accepted the position and has been working in Michigan for a while. Rex had kept the dog, and that kind of endeared him even more to Daniel. There is some miscommunication, lack of communication, and general stupidity that's kind of aggravating, but not so much that I wanted to rage quit the book. There was a lot of fluff and romance and sweetness. And angst.

This was just okay. I liked it, but did not love it. I don't know that I will check out the rest of the series, as I read that the next book focuses on one of Daniel's jerk brothers. Don't really want to see a redemption arc for any of them, especially Collin. ( )

I feel this book is really only 1.5 stars. I'm giving it two for the simple fact the dog got its HEA. It took me almost two weeks to finish this book and I literally had to bargain with myself to keep going. The story and characters had potential but I believe the writing was the failure for me. I really, really, really wish new authors would not attempt first person narrative, it takes skill to pull it off and that did not happen here. ( )

In the Middle of Somewhere is a deeply character driven book, which I found at turns to be charming, delightful, fun and poignant. Some of the prose is beautiful and so very apt. I recommend. Grade B+
