Editorial Reviews


Merrow brings community theater to life...Enjoyable characters and lively dialogue enhance this entertaining, lighthearted romance - Janice Carol, RT Book Reviews  JL Merrow did it again. She gave me another favorite book which is going to join the beautiful Muscling Through. The amazing Tristan will stay in my heart as Al did...There was no dead moment, every sentence was full of humor, I laughed so much at Tristan. Played! was an absolute winner - 5 stars, Stella, Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words These men had a true emotional bond and a kinship they shared between them that sizzled off of the written page...The story itself has a perfect balance between light and serious moments. Highly Recommended! - 5 kisses, Gabbi, Top 2 Bottom Reviews --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

JL Merrow is that rare beast, an English person who refuses to drink tea. She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab ever again.

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.

JL Merrow is a member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association, International Thriller Writers, Verulam Writers and the UK GLBTQ Fiction Meet organising team.
