OUT NOW! Of Love and Family Box Set by J.D. Walker
The search for love is hard enough without the meddling of well-meaning family members. Low self-esteem, childhood trauma, PTSD and jealousy can derail a relationship faster than a bathroom quickie, and then there’s the not-so-helpful mother or baby brother who just wants everyone to be happy, already.
What can a single dad do when his daughter is best friends with the niece of his nemesis across the hall? Or the son, who returns home for a family get together that includes his ex-boyfriend and a daughter he didn’t know existed? Is a clubber more than he appears? Sometimes, family can make all the difference.
This box set contains eight of J.D. Walker’s best-selling MM romances, including:
Crank Me Up: Marius tolerates Xavier only because his daughter is best friends with Xavier’s niece. But when Uncle Cranky insults his intelligence, Marius snaps back. Xavier surprises him by offering an apology and an invitation to dinner. Marius decides to give Xavier another chance, and they end up with a lot more than they bargained for.
Crank Me Down: Xavier McDay and Marius Rabineaux have been together for a year, and Marius wants to take things to the next level — marriage. Sherie and Tonya, Marius’ daughter and Xavier’s niece, are definitely rooting for the men, too. When Marius proposes, Xavier happily accepts. Now all they have to do is find a house for four, plan the wedding, and survive the honeymoon.
Because of Sam: Martin Wesley leads a stressful life, but when he suddenly becomes the caregiver for his only niece, Samantha Wesley, something has to give. Daycare worker, Ryan Gentles, is a lifesaver, and as he learns how to be a parent, Martin finds his heart being pulled in two directions. Now, he has to choose between his job or a love and family he never thought possible.
Truck Me How I Like It: Derrick Choi needs release in the worst way, especially after the kind of day he’s had. When he decides to unwind at a favorite club, he encounters the manager from one of his delivery stops and sees him in a whole new light. Paul Fontana is older and just plain hot. When these two men get up close and personal, they find out there could be more than a one-night stand in their future. Maybe.
Truck Me Back to Normal: Joey just wants to find his new normal now that he’s back on his feet, thanks to his brother. But Bear, his new boss, is distracting, and Joey doesn’t know what to do with the attraction he hasn’t felt in so long. So, he ignores it. That, however, doesn’t stop Bear from trying to convince Joey to take a chance on them, no matter what.
Of Paws and Pet Rocks: Barry Dunning is a lonely pet groomer and painter of rocks. He’s been burned badly by an ex-boyfriend who left him with tons of debt. Then Sheldon Svenson, the owner of the animal shelter where Barry volunteers on weekends, asks him out on a date. It ends badly, but Sheldon pursues Barry and convinces him to give them another chance. Maybe this time, they’ll get it right.
Grateful for You: Jared Gillespie left home five years ago because his boyfriend, Walt Schneider cheated on him. With a woman. What he doesn’t realize is that Walt, the man he still loves was trying to tell him something, which Jared figures out after his mother convinces him to come home for Thanksgiving. Harsh truths are revealed and second chances become possible. Something to be grateful for.
Loving Me, Loving You: Hanson Yoo is tired of his job, and doing things to please his mother.

A serious misstep and a life-changing moment lead him to take charge of his future and do something for himself, this time.
