Editorial Reviews


The writing is superb, the characters are memorable (two characters who found redemption after being some of the least liked people going), history made lively, vivid, and incredibly important in how its presented, and a whole HEA that made my heart sing - Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words   
Love at First Hate is a story of two men whose lives are a mess but in different ways. One is a victim of love and trust, the other of birth, expectation, and circumstance...It's about confrontation, introspection, comparison with historical figures, hiding oneself, and challenging choices...I couldn't stop turning the page - Taylin, Love Bytes Reviews
A great enemies-to-lovers story, this truly was first hate before the two decided to compromise and get to know one another. After that, the sparks were flying for a different reason... I highly recommend this series, and most definitely this story - Barb, Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words
I've read a few of the Porthkennack stories, and they are all entertaining. This is a great addition to Jory and Mal's One Under" and Devan and Kyle's Wake Up Call. JL Merrow's writing style has an easy flow, with lots of emotion to draw your interest - Maryann, The Novel Approach
[Love at First Hate is] about Branok (Bran) who was a real git in the first two books, and whom I'd basically written off as a jerk not worth my time...Boy, was I wrong - Sandra, My Fiction Nook

She writes (mostly) contemporary gay romance and mysteries, and is frequently accused of humour. Her novel Slam! won the 2013 Rainbow Award for Best LGBT Romantic Comedy, and several of her books have been EPIC Awards finalists, including Muscling Through, Relief Valve (the Plumber’s Mate Mysteries) and To Love a Traitor.
