Editorial Reviews


Here's what readers of an advance copy had to say...

"I don't have words to describe how much I loved this story...your best book to date."
"...loved the Building Us! You can read it as a standalone."
" a huge hug."
"...for any sexual orientation."
"Characters engaging...very entertaining!"
"...definitely recommend this read to others."
"I pushed off today's work until tomorrow because I couldnot put this book down. The story was that good."
"I fell in love with Evan and Dillon in Marketing Beef and was hoping to see more of their story. You mademe one very happy reader."

"...well written...great characters."
"Overall, I loved this book! Five stars!"
"Engaging and entertaining from beginning to end."
"I didn't want the story to end. It was absolutelycaptivating."
"It had everything...kept you guessing."
"I love seeing the old crowd from Tim on Broadway too."
"It's a compelling story that feels realistic. The focus on the two main characters gives the reader time to really get to know them."
"The humor pops up unexpectedly and creates islands oflightness that are like palate cleansers."
"I don't think it necessary to have read MB first. I couldn't put [Building Us] down from start to finish, although I had to, as it was husband's birthday. We went to his folks for dinner, so dammit, I had to be polite and all, but it was, "leave mummy alone now" as soon as I stepped foot back inside home!"
"I generally have mixed feelings about sequels that focus on the same couple after they seem to have gotten their HEA (happily ever after).  However, Building Us alleviated any concerns I may have had."

"These people were real to me. The relationship between Dillon and Evan is so true to life."
" the back and forth POV from chapter to chapter--brilliantly done with distinct voices each time. BRAVO!"
"I cried for ten minutes...the entire theme of this work is evidence of how far the LGBT community has come!"
"I'm surprised I didn't pass out from holding my breath for several high drama chapters."
"I loved them in the first book and I loved them even more in this one."
"What can I say about Building Us that goes beyond wow? I really loved this story."
"WOW! WOW! WOW! I absolutely loved it."
"I liked the way you have structured the chapters, some very short and some long, it makes a good read."
"The fact that there are many laughing-out-loud paragraphs,and that there are also some reach for tissues too, makes it a quite memorable and lasting book."
"The entire book is a great adventure and it becomes one of those books you cannot put matter what your watch says!"
"I [had] friends coming over for the weekend and I [wouldn't]be able to finish reading until Sunday night. I am quite upset about that!"
"Thoroughly enjoyed the book--an easy read keeping my interest up."
 "...a fantastic book. I raced through it and loved the plot, the characters and the dialogue.  I'd definitely give it a 5-star rating."
"...your best book, and just loved how so everyday life it felt. So often stories can be excellent, but how often does life really be peaches and cream without the crap life throws at us. You nailed that very well."
"I am missing my beauty sleep and I'm blaming you. I have forced myself to stop reading Building Us got to get some shut-eye!"
"I just finished reading Building Us (straight through) and couldn't put it down. Of all your books that I have read, this is the best."
"This was kind of beautiful, Rick."

From the Author

Writing about Evan and Dillon for a second time...what a joy! 

I love placing real-life characters into vivid scenes set in dynamic locations and giving them a problem to solve. From there, I let them roll to see what happens. In Building Us, Evan and Dillon suffer through a New England winter. They bargain for more than they can by casting Deet--their dog you'll recognize from book one--in a Hollywood production shot in and around the Salem, Massachusetts area. I have a fascination with showbiz and love Salem--I lived there for many years. Bringing this all together was an absolutely fun time. I hope you like it. I wanted to make sure this book could stand on its own despite being a sequel. I didn't want to let those who loved Marketing Beef down but also didn't want new readers to have to have read it. Judging from the advanced readers' comments, I hit the mark.

So sit back and enjoy Building Us. Follow me on Amazon and sign up for my mailing list ( to stay in touch.  You'll get five free books for joining my no-spam newsletter.
