    1. Scotty is gifted with words that is all there is to it! Scotty Cade is after all my shinning star, as he has gifted me with so many of his 5 Star books!Scotty uses words like Ty's latte-colored skin or warm mahogany skin. Let me explain why this is soooo important. I went to a formal Army thing this week. The Colonel gets up to speak, ( yes much like the Colonel you will come to know in this wonduful story) Any way the one at the celebration states, "we have come to accept blacks in todays Army, [...]


    2. "Make a choice to live an authentic life."Wes Stanhope left Charleston, his family and friends years before to escape his father's control. The Colonel insisted Wes attend The Citadel and join the family business. Instead, Wes went to medical school, became a pediatric oncologist and settled down in the Pacific Northwest to practice. His practice and the demanding life of a doctor makes relationships difficult, and he never really connects with the women he dates. No big loss, right? Then his mo [...]


    3. This writing style was so cold and impersonally I was glad this story ended at last. I couldn't connect to "In love" feeling at all. The story at self was plotted in emotionless way. And God, I simple won't start about Alicia. I'm sure this is not an author for my taste.


    4. It probably seems like I sneak my little pet peeves into my reviews…*smile* cuz, I do. One of my pet peeves are interracial romances, gay or straight, that show little or no respect for the cultural differences of the characters or resort to using cultural clichés. Newsflash: Not all black folk are on welfare and not all white folk are bigots. Neither do I believed that the average person chooses a lover only based on their race.Foundation of Love doesn’t fall into either of those literary [...]


    5. 3.5 starsI liked the story overall but some of the characters were a bit iffy.Wes is offered a great opportunity to set up and run a children's hospital center, but in order to do that he'd have to quit his current job and move back home. Despite his strained relationship with his father he chooses to do so, mainly since apparently the whole thing was his mother's idea and he wants to honor her memory. A friend of his recommends he talk to Ty and consider him for the architect in the project. An [...]


    6. I very rarely give out one stars. I just didn't connect to the characters. The storyline felt very contrived. It was slow, drawn out, and ultimately unfulfilling. I so wanted to like it, but in the it's just not for me. 1.5 stars.


    7. Foundation of Love is the story of Wes Stanhope, born and bred in Charleston, SC, son of a powerful white, rich family of military men. After running from his family legacy and going to Medical School in faraway Chicago, he has settled into a life as a rather brilliant pediatric oncologist. The book opens with the funeral of Wes' mother. Having returned to Charleston to attend her service, we find him sitting in his father's office. His father, the Colonel, offers him an opportunity to open a ch [...]


    8. I have read every book in the series and this one was by far the worse. I did not connect with the two main characters. I enjoyed the supporting cast of characters just barely a little bit more than the mc's. The main character was cold and his love interest even colder. The relationship was not developed properly. It seemed a bit forced and the ending a bit rushed. The so called adversity that the mc's had to overcome was namely of the doctor's own making and then poorly summed up with a rather [...]


    9. I just didn't feel this one which is a shame cause I really liked the others in this series. I thought this story started so slow, I mean I understand the authors were just trying to establish the way Wes lived his life, but it was kinda boring. Even though we met Ty fairly early in the story and he's the main love interest, he doesn't really play that big a part in the story. Only one chapter is in his POV and it was about the scenery. The majority of the story is about Alicia, who is in love w [...]



    10. This one was also really good! I liked Wes and Ty and I appreciated that the conflict in this book was minor and more centered around the two MC's instead of focusing so much on the adventure in the story. This book also had a strong backstory, but it didn't leave me feeling emotionally raw like Bounty of Love did. I liked the spirit of these characters. Wes, in particular. He was confused and not quite sure of himself, still floating around in the world, trying to figure out who he is as a pers [...]


    11. 4.5 stars.🌟 This was a beautiful gay-for-me story.  Written well and includes some beautiful scenes with Weston and Tyler.  Brad and Mac from previous books are included in this one as well as some new characters, I especially loved Riley Wes and Ty are great in together as Wes sorts out his feelings for Ty. I absolutely loved the ending, it was gorgeous. Dr Weston 37 yrs was in his home town attending his mother funeral. He was a pediatric oncology doctor. His mothers dream was to build a [...]


    12. Originally reviewed for The Book VixenIn a Nutshell: Enjoyable MM romance with good leads and a nice plot.Why I Read this Book: I’ve enjoyed this series greatly and will continue it.What I Liked: The best thing about Cade’s books, and it holds true here, is that the men are honest with each other. Wes and Ty don’t have any big misunderstandings or feelings they refuse to share. Instead, the romantic tension comes from how these two men will make a relationship work with all these obstacles [...]


    13. This book, along with the Wings of Love were my favourites of the series. I just really liked Wes and Ty. I also loved the descriptions of Charleston and was immediately swept away into their story.I didn’t know what to feel about Wes’ father, in the beginning of the book I felt he was trying to develop a relationship with his son and was just very awkward about putting himself out there emotionally, but by the end of the book it was clear that he wasn’t willing to go there for a son who w [...]


    14. 3.5 stars ( Whys doesn't rating allows half stars?)This is an Out-For-You multicultural romance about two middle-aged men. Wes is a brilliant paediatrician oncologist from a powerful White family of military men. His own father is a retired Colonel, mind you. Ty is a successful architect from a working class Black family of five or six children.While Ty is openly gay, Wes has always considered himself straight. Never mind that he shared a hot kiss with a boy in the back of a car when he was a t [...]


    15. This book was about 3.5 stars for me, rounded to 4. While it was my least favorite book in the series, I still quite enjoyed it. Why was it my least favorite? This book is a straight up romance with little to no angst. While that is definitely not a bad thing, romance is not my particular genre - I like the added mystery or the shapeshifter, something to give it a little Alpha Male oomph. While both MCs were hot, and I really liked them both, it was a sweet, sweet romance from A to Z.There were [...]


    16. This is a very sweet story of coming to terms with who and what you are and what you will do for the right person. I liked this book but it was a little predictable, I saw the train wreck coming and I did enjoy the journey to the wreck but it was kind of obvious so was the fall out to a point. I think what I enjoyed the most about this story was watching Wes coming into his own. The honesty between Ty and Wes was nice and I liked that the focus was on love rather then the sex of the person you l [...]


    17. I read this book some time ago and neglected to post a review - don't you love the end of year when you do a quick Kindle clean out to prepare for the new year?! :)Anyway, I'm not really doing to post a review, more like just add a rating and a quick quote that resonated with me."He said that if we give ourselves permission to love who we truly love, instead of who we're expected to love, then we double our odds of finding a real connection. I had to give myself permission to love Brad, and once [...]


    18. Wow! This is the first book in the Love Series I read although being the fourth book and reading it first did not make a difference for me. I loved, loved, loved, this book. I couldn't wait to read the others. I did finally read them in the proper order and have re-read them several times!I must admit to re-reading Foundations of Love and Wings of Love quite a lot! These men are wonderful, loving, positive, sexy! The cover for Foundations is perfect! As with Wings, the imagery was spot on. I wa [...]


    19. 2.5 starsI sooo wanted to love this series. The first book was exceptional then the series lost it and this book was no different. I'm glad that Mac and Brad were in this one again (I just love them) it helps make the story not a complete bust. I did like Ty and Wes, hated Alicia until the end (she redeems herself) but I really don't know exactly what went wrong with this book. I still love the concept of this whole series, I really wanted it to work I kept hoping every book would be better.I ra [...]


    20. I was not familiar with this author, but now I'm hooked!! I first read An Unconventional Courtship (which I will also be giving a 5 star rating) and I am now in the process of buying all of Scotty Cade's books. He is a wonderful author with a real sense of romance - and just the right amount of tension and suspense. His characters are so believable! I hope he keeps the books coming for a looong time!


    21. The plotline is one I usually like for a nice, lazy read, but this sadly didn't add much beyond the usual oppressive-father, discovering-sexuality stuff. The characters were flat, and their dialogue was stiff and unnatural, very prone to weird one-sided "let me tell you all the deepest information on myself even though we've only known each other for five minutes" moments. There was a ton of telling-not-showing.


    22. I always try to re-read books and give them a second chance. Unfortunately, I still think this book was kind of boring. As interesting as the foundation of a hospital sounds, this plot line took up too much space.Same with Alicia, a secondary character. I really didn't like her at all and she got so much page time, that I ended up skipping pages. In the end this book was tedious and long-winded. Really long-winded.


    23. Being an AA woman from NC I was curious how the author would handle the racial & homophobic issues. I wasn't disappointed. I wasn't sure about Alicia at first it seemed at times that she could really cause the MC's problems but in the end that worked it self out. I'm glad Wes did end up with some family as a support system. I've read #3 now I'll go back and read 1 & 2.Thanks Scotty for an interesting series.


    24. It was okay, could have been much better. The story line was set and seemed good but as I got into the book it started to fall a little flat. It was the most traditional gay for you book I've ever read(not a good thing). There were little to no surprises and seemed a little all over the place in the beginning. So I give it 2.5 stars.


    25. I really liked this book.I was sceptical about reading it because of the reviews I had rad about Alicia, but I really should take my own advice and read before I review because it was nothing like some people reviewed.It was great to see old characters make a reappearance and spread love as they went.However Jack and Dax will always be my favourites.


    26. Scotty is a genius. I love reading books that make me feel. It doesn't always have to be warm & fuzzy or happy, after all real life isn't like that, right? As one of the other reviews stated, I was thrilled that race was such a small part of an inter-racial love story. "the heart wants what the heart wants" is true and shines brightly in this lovely story.


    27. I travel a lot reading books by Cade , this time the story is set in Charleston and it was interesting to read the history. And then there are Wes and Ty, two beautiful people and not just physically. As always, a thrilling book that makes you dream move and think.


    28. While I did like the multiple POV, the main characters barely spent time together. It was mostly about Wes while Ty was really a secondary character. Again, I don't know how love can develop when the MCs aren't in the same room more than a few scenes.


    29. A lovely story. I enjoyed reading how the romance blossomed between Wes & Ty. I wasn't a fan of Alicia, at first, but was glad that she redeemed herself in the end.I look forward to reading more of Mr. Cade's books.
