Sorry if this annoys you but I can't write a separate review for each book--you simply have to read the first one because it's so terrific, and then you must read the second because of the MC who was so apparently creepy and crummy in the first.

Aiden (foreground on the cover) and Noah bump into each other coming off the subway in London, strike each other as hot, and go their separate ways. Not quite. Read the blurb of "As the Leaves Fall" for the outline. What is key here is that Jones carries off a difficult narrative task by alternating the POV in each chapter. The amazing thing is that she gets into the head (and under the skins) of these exceptionally brilliant but love-sick men and takes you on a wonderfully relaxing journey to fulfillment.

Along the way their developing relationship is stalked and almost battered by Marcus, a devious sort of colleague who seems a bit off center each time he appears, and is definitely not one to be trusted, or liked.

How ironic, then, that he should become one of the two MCs, along with Adam, in "As the Ice Melts," the second in the series, also told in alternating POV chapters. He's the blond in the foreground on the cover and his story is far more complex, and gripping, and heart wrenching, than that of Aiden and Noah. Whereas those two are pretty much on their own in their book, Marcus is surrounded by a cluster of real, and well developed, characters, such as his Gran, Adam and is mum, and his best mates Colin and Jerry.

This book should not be considered a stand-alone, even if Aiden and Noah don't appear. You have to read theirs to get into the mood for Marcus and Adam which is a wonderful continuation of an attitude by an author who is pretty good at developing them.

Okay, after thinking Marcus was a real ass in the first book of this series, I feel really bad now. I LOVE Marcus. After reading As the Ice Melts, I just wanted to wrap him up in a big hug and not let go.

While reading the first in the series wouldn't keep you from enjoying this story, I do highly recommend reading As the Leaves Fall first, I think it will really enhance your enjoyment of this book...especially if you felt about Marcus how I did before I started As the Ice Melts. Here in the second book, we still have the great writing that lets the story flow smoothly and gets you wrapped up in the characters. We also get to see the reasons behind the attitude Marcus puts out.

When Marcus and Adam first meet, you would never imagine the two of them together. But we all know better, and every time after things keep warming up between them...even if their first time together is a bit unconventional and seems just like a hookup. But as time goes on and we get to see them together more and more, it's hard to imagine them not being together.

I want to give props for the supporting characters of Colin and Jerry. It made me smile the way they kept wanting to pull in a third (or even fourth) into their intimate encounters, and the support they show for Marcus is simply outstanding. Marcus couldn't ask for two better friends.

But Marcus still has that bit of personal medical history that he hasn't shared, his secret from Adam...which causes him a bit of anxiety, and you know how secrets turn out, right? So when things come to a head and everything hits the fan, my head was going crazy not just with their relationship hanging in the balance, but also worrying about Marcus. The same Marcus that I just wanted to smack upside the head in the first book.

This book can be read as a standalone, but it's best if you read the connected book, AS THE LEAVES FALL, as Marcus, one of the leads in this book, is the 'baddie' in the former. He's pretty prominent there, and the author was skilled enough to make me dislike him, but not hate him, and totally blindside me to the possibility of him having a tale of his own. And, the way she's gone about explaining him and what makes him, what he's endured in his life, made me feel for him, like him and cheer for him.

It's another very real-feeling book, once again set in the UK, though this time in Manchester. It's an 'ordinary' tale, but not a boring or mundane one, just one that could actually be happening under your eyes, with guys who were decent, who felt properly gay (by that, I mean that they didn't have to label themselves, there was no discussion about who does who, there was no playing coy or hard to get, and it wasn't romance-y in a teeth-grindingly sweet way, just in the right, 'yeah, I can see that happening' way) and who felt real.

I liked both leads, that there was a proper storyline to bring them together, and that each had their own moral values and decency, and that both were unselfish and had a lot of love for those they cared about. I think for me, this book was about love. Love between the leads, the love Marcus and his friends had for each other, Marcus's love for his gran and hers for him, and Adam's love for his mum. It left me with a warm feeling that was like a lovely cup of tea on a cold, sunny winter's day. I really enjoyed it, and, I *think* that the author may have one more book in this series up her sleeve. She's mentioned something, but currently there's no information on her website, so perhaps we'll be in for a little wait for it, but I know it'll be worth it - there's not a book of hers that I've read that I've not enjoyed.
