Unscripted Love: Kyle Vaughn had three goals in life: Become a vet, find the man of his dreams, and start a family. 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. One magical kiss beneath fireworks and stars changed everything. 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.
Someone to Call My Own: Psychic Emory Jackson and former black-ops specialist Jonathon Silver are men from two completely different worlds with one thing in common: heartbreak. Sparks fly when mutual friends introduce them, but it's so much more than basic attraction. Maybe these broken men with their jagged edges could somehow align perfectly to form something whole and beautiful. But will that realization come too late for them?
Nobody's Prince Charming: Darren McCoy and Wren Davison are two opposites that shouldn't mix well. Dare believes in fairy tales, true love, and happily ever after. Wren believes in fast cars, freedom, and no-strings sex. What can these two men possibly have in common? Passions ignite once the men stop fighting their attraction, but will it be enough to overcome their differences?
Contains mature themes.

Sounds like it was written in an hour
In a word: cringey. Hollow romance, tryhard humor, nonsensical scenes. Writing is extremely mediocre. Lots of telling, not showing. Story structure is nowhere to be found. Even the wording of sentences grated on my nerves. Wouldn't even read this quality of writing for free.
Let's take a look at the first book. Others are right; it's extremely obvious the writer didn't even bother Googling the basics of World of Warcraft. If this is core to the story, maybe give it a LITTLE effort, geez. The leads would say things like, "I messaged you on the gamer chat app on my mobile phone," which is such an unnatural way to talk I wanted to scream. The writer couldn't even be bothered to think of a fake "gamer chat app" name for her story about two guys who play games together?!
The self-indulgent references to Chaz being a hotshot romance writer made me wanna barf. Nothing in the story works. I knew I was done when Chaz's mom, grandma, and aunt barge into his home in the early chapters to encourage him to get with Kyle and then proceed to make multiple obscene sex jokes. They are excessive, tryhard, and not remotely believable. I'm so tired of this corny copy-and-pasted style of humor in romance books.
Despite all my misgivings, I continued on. I was a fool. It doesn't get better.
Joel Leslie is ordinarily a favorite of mine, so I was surprised by how off his performance is. Awkward pauses, misplaced emphases, and occasionally offensive voices. (I swear one side character has a Mammy caricature voice, Christ.)
