The Marine in Unit A by Kris Cook

My Review
Mockingbird Place is a development where its residents were all helped in one way or another by its now deceased owner, Malcolm.  Each feels his loss is different ways.  Oliver literally owed the man his life.  He was more a father to Oliver than Oliver’s real father.  I cried through the memorial scene.  
In fact, I cried at many points in this book.  The memorial, Oliver’s past, Adam’s trauma.  So many events had me emotional and entertained.  I could not ask for more when it comes to a book
The set up kind of reminded me of a Melrose Place feel, only with people I would actually want to live near.  One of my favorite parts of the book isn’t even a part of the story, but rather the schematic of the development.  It really helped me visualize scenes as they played out.  I love how Kris used current events within the book.  This book takes place the weeks prior to the Supreme Court decision on same sex marriage, and subsequent to it.  
This book was an emotional rollercoaster ride that I never wanted to end.


21-year old Oliver Lancaster is attracted to 22-year old Adam Stockton, the former-Marine moving into Unit A. But attraction for the closeted man morphs quickly into something deeper, something meaningful, something that terrifies Oliver. What will happen if Adam learns about the secret from his past? 

Warning: contains skinny dipping, two hot men kissing, and sexual situations taking place in a 10-unit Mediterranean complex filled with college-aged hotties.

Though starting in straight erotic romance, Kris’s total focus now is on gay romance. When asked why recently, his answer was “My muse finally came out of the closet. Isn’t it about time? I’ve been out since I was twenty-five.” A voracious reader, Kris loves many genres of fiction, but this writer’s favorite books are romances that are edgy, sexy, with rich characters and unique challenges. Kris’ influences include Anne Rice, JR Ward, Lexi Blake and Shayla Black. Last year, Kris married the love of his life Stephen.
