    Really cute picture prompt for the LHNB event.It's is a sweet little short. Cute kid, cute dad, cute babysitter.(view spoiler)[ I wanted to poke Bryan with a sharp stick a few times. You don't just STOP calling someone like that and really, his not wanting to introduce new guys into Colton's life is fine, but he also just cut Adam out of it, that wasn't fair or nice to Colton or Adam. *sniff* not inviting him to his 4th birthday party. Cold, dude, that was cold. I would have loved a little groveling, and once again, the younger guy was more mature and thinking more clearly.(hide spoiler)]

    Another sweet and delightful read from the LHNB series. Yup, FREE read here people!I appreciate the slight angst in the story coupled with the reluctance between Bryan and Adam to progress their relationship. Bug was such a cute bundle of Joy as well so it was an enjoyable read overall.

    Transforming Us was written for the M/M Romance Group's Love Has No Boundaries picture prompt event. It's told in third person through the eyes of Adam who periodically babysits, Colton, also know as 'Bug.' (view spoiler)[This is a cute, sweet story about Adam, Bug and Bryan, who is Bug's father. Adam had been looking after Bug until Bryan stopped asking him to babysit. Bryan asks Adam to babysit again after quite some time and the story starts from this point. The story mostly takes place on one day and again a few weeks later when something happens to Bug. Bryan doesn't want to disrupt Bug's life by dating, especially someone like Adam who he thinks only wants a casual hookup. Adam has to convince Bryan that he knows what he wants and is mature enough to handle a single father and a child.I enjoyed the characters and didn't have any trouble imagining them even though this was a short story. And even though this story contained a child, Bug was cute and not obnoxious like a lot of kids in stories with single fathers.Transforming Us is a fast, cute, sweet read. I give it 3 Stars (hide spoiler)]

    A cute, very short little read!I didn't really understand Bryan's behaviour to be honest (simply not calling a babysitter anymore whom your kid loves and who loves your kid without giving any sort of explanation is just a pretty selfish and not very smart (or polite) move, I think), but nevertheless, the story was... well, cute really fits the best as a description. It wasn't very substantial or intense or memorable, but it was light and cute and short. And sometimes, that's just what you need. :)

    Aww, that was such a sweet story.Adam and Bryan were adorable. They were so attached to Colt, careful to watch him and love him so he wouldn't miss his mother. And the tentative steps the two MCs took to be together were heart warming.I thought the story was nicely construed, could really see that happening in real life. Adam and Bryan have flaws as well as qualities as they tried to do what's best for Colt but also try their hand at a relationship.It really brought a smile to my face. 3.5 stars

    A cute freebie that was pretty well constructed. Wade managed to prevent the kidling from taking over the story or making it too sickly sweet, which can be tough in stories with kids. I'd like to read more by this author.

    Cute, short read. Bug is adorable! I can understand where Bryan is coming from but he needed to give Adam more credit.

    This was soo cute. I love kids, and Bug was adorable. I wish it had been longer, though.

    Short and cute... I adore single dad books and Bryan even though he seemed a bit gruff I could see the appeal...And I dunno if I'm just overly emotional today or what, but when Adam said he wasn't invited to Bug's birthday party, I got a little teary eyed lol, that wasn't nice... how come Adam's sister was invited and he wasn't and all he got was a few pictures his sister snapped on her phone? That broke my heart for some reason LOL ...sigh.... it sucks being a girl... stupid hormones! Anyway, it was a cute little read with a nice little happy ending... very cute

    basically Adam loves Bryan and used to babysit his son , he hasnt seen both in a while bryan never kept in contact not sure why but anyway, when adam is asked to baby sit again he takes the offer, But when he turn up he finds out his not needed. Adam is abit disappointed but all is not lost they spend time together. It was short and sweet to the point would have loved more.

    I had a really hard time liking Bryan. I get distancing your self from temptation, but golly he was kinda a dick about it. But, I did love Adam and Colton.
