More About the Author

A bestselling author of erotic romance, Amanda Young penned her first romance at eighteen. That novel was prompted deleted before it could traumatize innocent readers. After several years of honing her craft, Amanda went on to receive her first publishing contract in 2006.

A vivid imagination and a passion for all the things that go bump in the night has led Amanda to create provocative stories that push boundaries and dare readers to expand their comfort zones. Since she tends to write whatever strikes her fancy, her novels fall into many different subgenres. Among her available titles you'll find contemporary and paranormal settings, gay and straight themes alike.

Amanda Young lives in Virginia with her husband, daughter, and two pampered pooches. When she's not writing, she can usually be found chasing after a mischievous toddler or daydreaming about the characters in her next book. She loves to hear from her readers, and can be found on Facebook and Twitter. Her website, www.amandayoung.org, is where you can find up-to-date information on all of Amanda's current and upcoming releases.

A beautiful, heartwarming story from my first M/M author Amanda Young, Inestimable Blessings is testament to love in its many forms.

Amanda's writing is very sensual and her stories flow beautifully; I always get so caught up in the lives of her characters and the eroticism when her men love each other is sexy, very hot and often simply sweet. She really knows how to portray people falling in love and she is able to share with the reader the emotional component of relationships.

Lee is such a wonderful person and someone that I would love to call friend. Even though he's not found that certain special someone he's going ahead with his life and doing something to achieve his dream of being a father. Watching as the birth of his child neared I completely shared in his excitement; no it's more than just mere excitement. What Lee is experiencing, along with some trepidation, is joy... complete and utter joy. And his feelings spilled from the pages and worked their way to my heart. It brought back the amazing memories of my own pregnancies and the incredible and often overwhelming feelings associated with becoming a parent a first or even fourth time. What a gift!

Then when Lee finally connected with his neighbour Finn... that was HOT and thrilling in its own right. And it added a separate texture to Lee's life that, again, was extremely heartwarming.

I loved the dynamics of the relationship between Finn and Lee; the humour and the thrill of finding someone with whom you can be yourself flowed and thrilled at the same time. And I totally loved Finn's dog... oh my heavens. Finn may not have ever entertained the idea of being a father, but his dog Rowdy is a sweet and perfect substitute.

As expected by a story with a baby in it, Inestimable Blessings can give you the baby cuties, so if you don't like to ohh and ahh on toddler, you will probably not understand Lee Calder's desire to be a father at any cost (and with the bills for a surrogate mother that is a saying).

Lee Calder is an average handsome, average wealthy, average old gay guy. An adopted child with the bad luck to loose his foster parents when he was still young, he developed a desire to be a father; due to his loose ends, the desires to be a biological father is even stronger and since Mr. Right is not around, Lee decides to use his mother's inheritance to hire a surrogate mother. Of course as soon as he has done that, Mr Right pops up out right next door, in the guise of his new very handsome neighboor.

This is a romance, and of course it follows all the romance rules: Mr Hunk next door is of course gay and free and he is more than willing to start a long-term relationship with Lee. Problem is, Finn is also a muscle car mechanic, more the beer than milk type, and a new baby in arrive is probably not a good surprise for him. Lee enjoys some weeks of bliss, but then he has to find the courage to confess to Finn that Lee will be soon a single dad.

While Lee has his originality, and maybe weakness, in being a man that doesn't accept to be lonely (it's also probably an aftercome from his own experience), I liked also the contrast of Finn; apparently he is not a family man, but I think that he is exactly that: even if young and still in the age range to play the field, Finn prefers an exclusive relationship and a steady lifestyle; he has an home, family ties, even a puppy.

Yes, puppies, babies, sweet and romance... definitely this is a novel for the romantic heart; maybe not so realistic, with little contrast and contraposition, but nice.

I just noticed that when I rated this 5-stars on my kindle phone app awhile ago it didn't show up on the product page. That just gives me an excuse to relive this sweet, sweet story while I take a minute to officially make the rating a 5-star review. I've got to admit, a man who wants a baby is going to do it for me :-) Sweet men + hot sex = 5 stars for me, especially when it's also well written. The day I read this, my husband kept walking past me and giving me weird looks. I'm like, "What??" And he's all, "Why are you smiling so much?" and that was basically my face during the entire book (especially when Lee hit Finn!) So, yeah, loved it :-)
