    1. 4.5 starsThis review will be purposely vague so that readers can enjoy the mystery and suspense of the plot and the slow reveal of the character's many layers without being spoiled.Right off the bat I need to let you know that this story was more mystery/suspense than it was a romance. It did include a romance, and a great one at that, but the mystery to romance ratio was about 60/40. I also need to caution you that there are some pretty graphic descriptions of child sexual abuse (which take pla [...]


    2. Just the thought that the child abuse and child sex trafficking described in this book, are based on real events, feels like a punch in the gut. Lets just say that my level of respect for the people working on cases like these, is much higher after reading this story.Xavier Constantine, former FBI agent and current deputy sherrif, and Evan "Chance" Fairchild, assistant district attorney meet at a club, and after an explosive one night stand, they part ways. Little did they know that a few days l [...]


    3. I give up.I'm officially a quitter. I'm dnf'ing this one at 65 %. This book was just not for me. Too many details. got so confusing. There was no romance, I didn't feel any sexual tension and I felt absolutely no connection with the MC's. To me it read as a very complicated episode of Law and Order, spec. vic.Since I didn't finish it, I'm not gonna rate it. Don't let my negativity stop you from reading this one could be a case of " it's me and not the book".I just like my mm books to have a bit [...]


    4. BR with Els, Wendy and KarlijnDNF at 65%Can’t say I didn’t try with this one. I read 200 pages of this awful puppy before I decided to give up. Why I gave up:- The writing was way too wordy. I had a hard time understanding who was doing what. Not a good thing in a book.- There was no romance. These guys have a one night stand at the beginning of this book but after that they don’t do anything. It was boring as hell….- Besides the fact that there was no romance, there was also no UST. UST [...]


    5. ETA: link to my review Gay.Guy.Reading and FriendsI'm writing a review for Gay.Guy.Reading and Friends. I'll add a link when it's available.3.5 coulda been 5 stars rounded up I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.


    6. Audible4,5 stars“This story is dedicated to honoring all of America’s law enforcement heroes – those who have died in the line of duty and those who continue to serve and protect.”I have never read anything by the author(or authors) before, but the blurb sounded just too enticing that I decided to give it a try. I started it with open mind, much unbiased, I haven’t even checked the reviews from my friends and an average rating BEFORE, what I really do seldom.To tell that I was positive [...]


    7. I have absolutely no idea how to put into words the way this story made me feel.On the outside the coming together of Chance and Xav was exactly my kind of read. I loved Xav and his confidence. Chance, despite his prickles, was obviously a good guy. Watching them come together had me both smirking and sighing in delight. But in all honesty this one would work without the falling in love part. If anything a second book on them falling in love leaving this one as just the meeting up point would of [...]


    8. Very enjoyable m/m mystery/romance. The plot is credible and engaging with lots of interesting police procedural stuff. Solid romance with two complex MC's whose emotional baggage doesn't feel gratuitous. One odd quirk of the story for me was all the song/artist references. It was fun at first and the songs, which I googled, provided some nice atmosphere to the tale. However after a while it started to feel a bit more like product placement. That's just a minor quibble though.


    9. For my honest and true view of this book, please readMORE TOS-compliant review (I think, let me know when they tell us what the rules are):"The book I just read is about two (or three) lovely people, written in beautiful language, by a very good and prolific author. I liked it very, very much.It is for sale on .”DISCLAIMER: My reviews now all have this pretty face, so that all and everyone on can stay happy and beatific. I’ll let you know if I change my mind.

    10. OMG OMG OMG!This was a hit! This was also a very tough subject to read about, it broke my heart multiple times. I loved the two MC's, gimme more please!


    11. BRILLIANT STORYTELLING at it's finest!!!Assistant District Attorney “Chance” Fairchild has a no repeat, no fraternization rule he’s sworn by all his life. That is until the tall, sexy Xavier Constantine showed up and rocked his world.Former FBI special agent, turned deputy sheriff, “Xav” Constantine is haunted from a botched up, failed rescue extraction while deep undercover in South America.A failed rescue that left two kids dead.“You promised you’d keep us safe!” always haunts [...]


    12. After an undercover operation goes bad for FBI agent Xav Constantine, a change of jobs is in the cards. He decides to travel from California to North Carolina, to become the new deputy sheriff in charge of child trafficking in Dare's Landing. Xav is openly gay, but his new coworkers seem to have no problem with this.Evan Fairchild is the assistant district attorney. He is trying to get drugs off the streets and classrooms in this area of North Carolina. The district attorney seems more intereste [...]


    13. Wow. A powerful story that was more mystery/suspense than romance, but I devoured it. I read it in one sitting apart from coffee and loo breaks. The plot was a stomach churner and not for everyone(child abduction and abuse) but thankfully the violence was mostly fade-to-black and in short bursts. Both the MC's carried emotional scars from the past but this was not used as a plot padder thankfully , more to flesh out their characters and make them real. You can't do that kind of work and not be a [...]



    14. I absolutely loved this! haven’t read a suspense story this well crafted in a very long time. The characters are complex and perfectly developed. The southern setting is beautifully painted - the authors’ North Carolina manages to be both perfectly charming and eerily claustrophobic. The attention to detail is rare and thoroughly convincing. This is a very powerful story. The subject matter is dark. Child trafficking isn’t an easy topic and the writers don’t treat it lightly. The details [...]


    15. 3.5 stars rounded down to 3 because still no 1/2 stars here on GR and I just wasn't feeling the loveke yes, love not so much.Welllets just say it's complicatedOverall I liked the story. Mystery/thriller/suspense type stories are definitely a main staple of my reading diet and 'Solitary Man' had me hooked right from the start. This focus of the action in this story is 'drugs and child trafficking't an easy topic at the best of times. When an undercover case with the FBI goes seriously wrong Xavie [...]


    16. Solitary a word with various definitions. Confinement being one of them, to be totally isolated from life. Maybe locked in a room or a cell as punishment. Lonely is another, someone who isolates themselves from others, existing through life unaccompanied.While reading this book I found that I understood both sides of this definition and found them both equally sad. I always endeavour to give an honest account in my review and I have to say that this story was overwhelmingly powerful. A Solitary [...]


    17. This book deals with some tough subjects so be warned. Child sexual exploitation, drug and human trafficking are foremost. Don't worry though, everything is dealt with sensitively, no salacious details here. Information is given in such a way as to soften but not diminish what is happening -very much a telling not a showing book. Then there is the burgeoning romance between Xav and Chance that adds some light relief and helps balance the more difficult plot line.As for the m/c's? Ahhh, Xav, well [...]


    18. A Joyfully Jay review. 5 starsThe writing talents of Aisling Mancy and Shira Anthony have teamed up to bring us a taut and action packed thriller in their new novel, A Solitary Man. With incredible attention to the smallest detail, we are taken on a roller coaster ride through the jungles of Bolivia to a sleepy seaside town in North Carolina. The long and evil arm of drugs and sex trafficking have left their mark on Dare’s Landing and we are introduced to the two heroes who will ultimately wor [...]


    19. 2.5 StarsThis started off slow, moved at a glacial pace, then finally picked up steam in the last quarter.This is more mystery/thriller than romance and I wish I'd have known that going in. Though, frankly, I picked out the "bad guy" within the first four chapters and it turned out I was right, so I don't know how much "mystery"His heart raced in his chest and he clenched his jaw. How had he not seen it? I don't know, Chance. I don't know.


    20. WOW! 2016 is off to a very good start with A Solitary Man. As you can see from the blurb, this is a romantic thriller, or a thrilling romance (or maybe both? ). However you want to label it, A Solitary Man is an engrossing, very well written and fascinating story.Xav and Chance are intriguing main characters. Both men struggle with personal feelings and issues for very good reasons, yet neither of them allows those private problems to stop them from doing what needs to be done. Within two min [...]


    21. A Solitary Man by Shira Anthony & Aisling Mancy5 starsM/M Mystery, light RomanceTriggers: Child sex trade, murder, abuseI was given this book for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.Wow! I absolutely LOVED this story. It was well done, crafted with the utmost care. The characters were both well developed, but not so developed that you couldn't use your own imagination as well. The secondary characters were just as developed and helped in the story so much, that I didn't really feel they [...]


    22. 4.5 stars (-.5 for a few unanswered questions) rounded up to 5 stars. Great M/M action adventure story dealing with child sex trafficking and drug smuggling (you know, there are some scumbags (child predators) on this earth who need to be eliminated as brutally and painfully as possible).Anywayis is also a very nice romance between an in the closet Asst. D.A. who himself had a traumatized childhood and a former F.B.I. agent who quits the bureau after a botched raid where he tried and failed to s [...]


    23. Dear me, that was one amazing book. A very solid plot that keeps you on the edge, and with a real emotional involvement. A ton of facts that look like the authors must have done a lot of research. Two most appealing main characters you really want to see together. And the kid, he was so lovable and heartbreaking. Truly, a great book.


    24. 5 Heart Review by KatThis is not a typical read for me. I have devoted my life to educating and protecting children. Reading a book with children-in-peril is way out of my norm and I would have not read it if I had not agreed to do this review. However, I am so thankful that I was pushed onward to read and finish this amazing book. Was it comfortable to read…at times, No! Was the back plot of the story, child abduction, cocaine dealing and child sex slave trafficking very dark and hard to stom [...]


    25. Not working for me, don’t like either MC. Both seem arrogant and there’s too much alpha male posturing. I think it’s really hard to write highly competent men of action, like law enforcement types, and not have them come off as full-of-themselves lone wolves. I prefer the kind of fully rounded cops/agents that Josh Lanyon creates. Xav and Chance are by no means the extreme a-holes I've seen in other books, but I'm not digging them enough to finish this thing. I also really dislike when cha [...]


    26. “He longs for something he can't touch, what will make him wholeHe knows [he's] out there somewhere, for he hears [his] song within; Turning, walking quietly, leaving footprints in the sand; he walks in dreams into the night, a solitary man.” ~ Allison Chambers Coxsey (Solitary Man)After his last failed mission as an undercover FBI agent, Xavier (Xav) Constantine, of 'A Solitary Man' by Shira Anthony and Aisling Mancy, has had it with the agency. Xav quits and takes a job as a deputy sheriff [...]


    27. OMG This book was so good! I will admit at first I was not sure how I would feel about it but these authors blew me out of the water with this book! This is where I will give a warning that there is abuse described in this book that may be hard for some to read. I know it was hard for me to read but I felt the way the author handled it was very good. In this book you get Xavier who has been working to find and help children that have been kidnapped and trafficked. Something happens on a mission [...]


    28. Soooooo Is it to early to start talking sequel?This book is the best one I've read in what seems like a really long time. It is a hard read, I'm not someone who reads about sexual exploitation of any kind on a regular basis because typically I just can't handle it so I say this to anyone who is like me, that this book does have frequent references to child sexual abuse and it is absolutely heartbreaking. At no point is this abuse depicted in real time or I would have never been able to read it b [...]


    29. Riveting storyTwo strong characters: both seeking the same thing yet battling their own issues and each other until they both realize the answer to the big picture is right there. At times legal thriller, at times a statement of where social justice should be focused, this book moves quickly through its plot, weaving a palpable love story through threads of crisp dialogue. My favorite lines are lyrical and appear towards the end when the happily ever after crashes in like an ocean wave wiping th [...]
