Blake Davis and husband Will are delighted when Ed Fellows turns up at the hospital the night their daughter is born—even if he is covered in mud from playing rugby and drunk out of his skull. Team-mate Colin is the Good Samaritan who drives him there, and when he takes Ed home, Colin finds himself on the receiving end of a blow-job. He has no problem with that whatsoever. He’s been in lust with Ed since Ed joined the rugby team some fourteen months ago. Only thing is, Colin’s assumed up ’til now that Ed is straight. Except the man sucking him off certainly didn’t seem straight…. Talk about the morning after the night before…. Ed awakens to find a nearly-naked Colin asleep on his sofa. The problem is that for some reason, he can’t get Colin out of his mind. Okay, so it wasn’t the first blow-job Ed’s ever gotten from a guy—or given, for that matter—but that was a long time ago, right? And why does Ed now want more? With friends Rick, Angelo, Blake and Will to advise him, Ed finds himself on a completely unfamiliar road, as he struggles to accept that maybe the line he is walking isn’t as straight as he’d first imagined…. ...

    4.25 rugby players are hot! starsAnother winner from Ms. Wells! Remember Ed with his rough East End accent? Ed is Blake's office manager. Ed talks like a man. Ed plays rugby. He likes...well, Ed likes a LOT of naughty things. And Colin, his rugby team mate, is happy to oblige. These boys were so steaming hot together! I said RUGBY. PLAYERS. Are you with me? Good. I loved seeing Will/Blake (and baby Sophie!), as well as Rick and Angelo, again (I really want to work at this publishing house, damn it!). Ed and Colin's rugby mates were hilarious. The interactions between them, in the pub and in the locker room, had me grinning from ear to ear. What a bunch of dirty (but also accepting and just plain awesome) boys!And seeing Ed open himself up to Colin, working past his comfort level to claim the man he loves...THAT was SO my cuppa. Little misunderstandings (with Colin's ex, with Ed's insecurities) ensue. But not to worry; these guys talk and get it together. Confession: I was very doubtful about Karen and her place in the office after book 1, but I really liked her here. I wanted to throttle Melissa (remember that crazy, conniving bitch?) in book 1 and had my evil smirk in place when she gets her (small but powerful) comeuppance here. I LOVED this book; it's a great addition to this series. Thanks, K.C.!

    Oh Ed. Ed, Ed, Ed....you make me feel squirmy in my tummy. You're big, beefy, and oh-so-sexy.Colin - You're a damn lucky git.Personal Secrets might well be my favorite in the series, and that's a tough thing when one of the characters in the original is named for you.I love K.C.'s writing. She's fresh and innovative. She takes chances with her characters, and makes it all work out. The best thing about a story is when it makes you want something else, and this one does.I'm dying to know the story of Rod and Derek. Pretty please!

    3.75 rounded up. So finally we get Ed's story from the Personal Series and if you've read the first two books you'll be glad to know he's just as loveable, funny and likeable as ever but he's also a sexy piece of work too. Hoo boy! He had me tingling a bit when he was getting down and dirty and I don't mean in a scrum! All through the series he's been a favourite of mine and to be honest I defy anyone not to fall for the charms of this big handsome guy! So it's inevitable that Colin, the love interest in this book, does exactly that. Colin is also a rugby player and unbeknown to the guys on the team and Ed, he's gay and has been lusting after the big hunk since the day Ed joined the team 14 months before, but in true unrequited lust way, Colin is convinced Ed is straight (but not quite...as we find out) so he's been content just to be around him as a team mate and friend.The book starts after a match, with a slightly inebriated Ed getting a call from the hospital where Blake and Will from Making It Personal, my favourite of the series, are waiting for the arrival of their new baby daughter and being the only sober one amongst the players because he's been on antibiotics, Colin offers to drive him there. Like the blurb says this culminates in the two of them ending up back at Ed's place where he insists on them both wetting the baby’s head. Things get cosy and before you know it the two of them are exchanging hand jobs and mind blowing BJ's. Love that scene! Colin is in heaven until the morning after when Ed realises just what the two of them did, and distances himself until he realises that the attraction he's started to feel for Col isn't going away, so with help and advice from the lovely Rick from Personal Changes he makes a decision to give into his feelings and embrace the attraction. They start a tentative relationship, which gets hotter between the sheets, and deeper emotionally the more these two sexy rugby players are in each other's company... and believe me the sex is H.O.T and extremely satisfying!As a couple I loved Ed and Colin together. KC never fails to make me fall for her couples and always produces some great sexual tension, sizzling sex scenes and spark inducing chemistry that when they're together jumps of the page at you and for me that was what gave me the most enjoyment from this story. The pairing of these two worked for me and I loved them both.There's quite a bit of friction thrown at the two of them, including a bolshie, homophobic team mate, an ex-boyfriend who tries to woo Colin back, another gay rugby player who Colin gets a bit jealous of when Ed takes him under his wing and a coming out to friends and family members that may or may not go down well. So plenty of scope for some edge of the seat angst but as these conflicts came along to test them, they were just as quickly resolved in a very smooth way so for me that made the story sort of coast along... more than having me buckling up for a bumpy ride! I wanted to see those problems test their relationship more and sort of wished that a couple of those situations had been drawn out more, to up the tension and provide that roller coaster ride that okay, might at times frustrate the pants of you in these types romances but at the same time engages your emotions as you're pulled into the story.In the first two books of the series I had an instant connection and knew within minutes that they were going to be 5 star reads. Sadly that immediate hook never fully transpired with this third book. Yes I adored them as a couple but after a fairly strong start the storyline, even though I enjoyed the easy writing style, never grabbed hold of me the way I was hoping it would, but perhaps that's just me.A couple of things that did feel out of place were a weird fleeting appearance from the nasty Melissa, who's 'visit' had me waiting for something explosive to happen after she'd dropped in ( ???) and a subplot involving Blake and an obsessive new PA. Once again, unfortunately, both didn't work for me at all as I just felt they were redundant to the main plot! The Blake slash PA Sam storyline in particular didn't add to, enhance or even relate to Ed and Colin's journey which for me was the true heart of the book, not what was going on in the background at Trinity Publishing. I was left puzzled by why they were both introduced? It all just felt kind of... unnecessary and pointless ... and it took me away a little from what was going on in Ed and Col's romantic life. I would have preferred to see more of Matt the ex-boyfriend as the ' baddie' or the shitty troublemaker, Murphy, but they sort of disappeared into the ether once they'd played their parts.Going back to Trinity Publishing, which of course has been a big part of the story, it was lovely seeing all the regular guys again. That was a highlight because all the favourites are still around, helping or advising our two guys when the shit does hit the fan and seeing that side of the publishing company did fit the books. Rick and Angelo in particular were a godsend at times!I have to say despite a little hiccup in my usual 5 star ratings, I'm still a KC fan because she writes a bloody good story and out of all her books it’s a rare occurrence for me to mark a Ms Wells story lower, so because this only slipped a tad under the radar I'm still giving it a thumbs up because I'm pretty damn sure this is going to be a 5 star read for most of you guys but sadly just not for me this time. Just a personal observation. However, all the 'Personal' couples, including Ed and Colin will always rank high in my favourites, making this a five star series overall and one I'll never be getting rid of if I can help it.Just thought I'd finish by showing how sexy a rugby player can be ....* swoon* OMG! I'll be his Hooker any day! BTW, that's a rugby term... Not what you're thinking!!Still smiling!

    4.5 starsReaders following the Personal series know Ed Fellows as Blake's office manager and best friend. Bearish and rough on the outside, Ed is fiercely loyal and protective of those he cares about. Ed has been there in there in the background supporting both Blake and Will and Rick and Angelo and now it is Ed's turn to have his world turned upside down. We got the first brief peek of Colin and Ed in More Than Personal, but if you haven't read that, the scene is replayed at the start of this book, but from Colin's point of view. When a drunk Ed gets word that Blake and Will's baby is on the way a bit early, his rugby teammate Colin offers him a ride to the hospital and then takes him home. Colin has been lusting after the presumably straight Ed since he joined the rugby team, so when a drunken Ed makes a move on Colin, it is hard for him to put up too much of a fight. The experience flips a switch in Ed. He had fooled around with men in university, but mostly found himself bouncing around from girl to girl with no real attachment. Now, not only can't he stop thinking about being with Colin, but he finds himself with feelings he's never had before in any relationship. The fact that he is having sex with a man is not a struggle for Ed, but the growing emotional attachment is.I have loved Ed's character since the beginning of the series and like that he hasn't changed. The story flow felt very real and the outside drama is toned down in this installment. The majority of the conflict is within Ed himself dealing with the fallout from his teammates and his family and with feelings he is not sure how to express. Colin is not perfect and has his own trouble dealing with how quickly he is falling for Ed, as well as the sudden reappearance of an old boyfriend. Rick and Angelo serve as the voice of reason for Ed, especially with his old friend Blake dealing with life as a new father (although there is plenty of catch up time with Blake and Will). This was a lighter read than the other stories in the series and I enjoyed watching the men navigate their relationship. Of course, with any K.C. Wells story, the hot sex doesn't hurt. I know this is slated to be the last in the series and the story works well tying up any loose ends for all three couples. I would be very interested however, in Rod and Derek's story, as those two seemed to hit it off quite well. Perhaps a little spin off?

    This was a fun entertaining read, I can’t say though it was a story that got to me emotionally or moved me one way or the other. I was sort of “meh” all the way through this book. I am really disappointed I didn’t love this more, but if the love is not there, it’s not there. I really liked the other two books in this series, but for me this one didn’t measure up to those. Maybe because this book is following a series i really really loved. The book that follows a great read sometimes has greater expectations thrust upon it, and that’s not fair. Not sure if this is the case, but I wanted to throw that possibility out there.In this book we have Ed Fellows, office manager at Trinity Publishing, friend of Blake and Will and rugby player. Blake is muscled, hairy, sexy and a sweetheart. Ed gets called to the hospital by Blake and Will to be there when their daughter is born, his rugby friend Colin drives him. After Ed and Colin celebrate the birth by having a few drinks, after which lead to them to giving each other blow-jobs. The morning after Ed is shocked by his behavior and doesn’t know what it means, is he straight, bi, gay?Colin has been admiring Ed for a long time, secreting stealing looks and glances. He knows Ed is straight, but despite this he can’t help but be attracted to be muscled, hairy, tell it like it is man. I liked Colin as well, out and proud, sweet, sophisticated and sexy. There is definitely lots to like about this story, I love KC Well’s writing, the way she tells a story. I liked seeing the characters from the previous two books, Blake, Will, Rick, Angelo, the office staff at Trinity. For whatever reason, I was not ever captured or emotionally involved in this story or Ed and Colin. I breezed through this hoping for the hook to get me, it never happened.Many thanks to KC Wells for the arc for an honest review.3 average stars.

    Well that was fun!I read the first book in this series and gave it 2 stars. I hadn't planned on continuing the series, but then I read that 'Personal Secrets' was about two hot rugby players doing the dirty dirty. I don't know much about rugby, but I'm willing to give anything with two hot rough men a try. Yeah, I'm easy.Ed and Colin's romance is simple and fairly smooth. It's not inta-love, but these two don't waste a lot of time. They know they like having sex with each other, and they know they like spending time together. So they just jump right in to see where it goes. There wasn't much angst or drama, which is just what I was in the mood for.It was refreshing to read about a man exploring his newly-acknowledged attraction to another man without the self-hate and constant second-guessing. There are a few misunderstandings along the way, but the two work through them fairly quickly and openly. Once Ed realizes that he's attracted to Colin, he doesn't fight it. He also accepts that his reasons for denying that part of himself probably had more to do with the environment he grew up in, as opposed to magically becoming attracted to men.Plus, the sex was very hot. I mentioned I was easy, right?There were a few things that weren't entirely believable. In particular, I don't think the rugby team's and Ed's family's quick acceptance of his sexuality was entirely believable. But I enjoyed the story enough to just go along with it.Overall, this was a very enjoyable friends-to-lovers read. Recommended if you're looking for an easy read that's high on the sexy scale!

    4.5 stars from me for this one. I LOVE Ed and Colin...well, be honest...I love Ed, Colin is a very lucky guy!!This will not be a long or even complicated review. Ed is just so damn sexy when he finally gets his gay groove on, and it's all Colin can do to hang on to his coat-tails, hehe. The rugby team were awesome with the notable exception of one particular person whom we have hopefully seen the last of, Blake, Will and the rest of the gang at Trinity Publishing were immensely supportive as always, and Ed's mum, well, I was a little concerned about how she and the rest of Ed's family would take the news but what do I know?? We got to catch up with the Davis household including little Sophie, we had some great news concerning Rick and Angelo, but the biggest news was saved for the end of the book, and yes, you'll have to read it yourself to discover what that was. {{{Big Hugs}}} to KC for this ARC, much appreciated as always.

    This was a perfect story to finish on Valentine's Day. It was a sweet, sexy, romantic love story.Ed and Colin are rugby teammates. Colin has kept his desires toward Ed under wraps since they have known each other. All markers point to Ed being straight, so Colin satisfies himself with being his buddy. One night with Colin has Ed's world fraying at the edges when he starts to have feelings, desires toward Colin that he can't process. Straight, gay, that's the question. Blake, Will, Angelo and Rick are there to help Ed in his voyage of discovery. I am not team Ed or team Colin, I liked them both equally.If you want to read a soothing, gentle story. This is for you. I give it a scrum full of stars.A personal note, please authors write more rugby romances. It's one of my favorite sports.

    4.75 Stars !I was delighted when I heard about this book featuring Ed, who’s lovely, sweet and bear-like. Whats not to love? And boy did we know Colin would fit in nicely :D I couldn’t wait to see where author K.c Wells was going to take us readers with this “last”part of her personal series.When Ed and Colin end up together it could be the beginning but will it be? Ed is straight right? And how about Colin? What if it appears that Ed isn’t so straight as people might think and it seems that Colin is not straight at all…That there are feelings there is very obvious from the start but what about the things around those feelings, the part where it isn’t just Ed and Colin but the “so called” outside world gets involved.Can Ed handle this? Can he admit to his friends and himself most of all that this “thing”with Colin isn’t just a thing at all. While Ed is usually easy to read and a great friend, open and kind, this could be something that he isn’t sure he’s willing to open up about.His colleagues, their rugby mates , his mother and family? Is Collin worth going for it completely?So many of those questions come to the surface while reading this story and you cannot help getting completely sucked in to this compelling tale.Quit literally, I might say because author K.c Wells sure lives up to her reputation of bringing out some hot steamy sex in her characters (much to this reviewers appreciation btw).The already mentioned connection between the main characters Ed and Colin is instant, sexy, hot and heavy yet emotional. Still what I like most in this 3rd part is the friendship and the connection between the character of earlier books. The way they blend together live their life together as close and dear friends and part of each others business so to speak.I loved to read about Blake, Will and their baby girl. Rick and Angelo what a great surprise there at the end but also the advice the guys give Ed and being their to listen.The way the friends include the members of Ed and Blake’s staff, the way they stand up for each other and their “own” when there is need for that is wonderful.Is there no down side? Yes a slight one for me, that is. The dialect Ed is speaking in isn’t always that easy to read. It even distracted me at certain times as I needed to work out what exactly was meant. Although I cannot deny that this accent is also very particularly Ed.In total I can only say that Miss Wells delivered a great series with these stories and definitely didn’t disappoint with this last part.One question remains though as a fan of these characters as I cannot disregard the slight opening left there. I certainly want to express my hope for a spin off featuring Derek and Rod, Please?Review posted at:http://sidlove.com/2014/02/12/current...

    4.5 Stars *sigh* This was my favorite of the series by far. I adored Ed and Colin, especially Ed ... no, especially Colin. Ugh, I can't choose. I loved them both. The cover leaves much to be desired but the story was a winner!Bottom line: This book is much better than the hairy guy adorning the cover.

    So far 'Personal Secrets' is my personal favorite...‘Personal Secrets’ is book #3 in K. C. Wells series ‘Personal’ and while we get to see Blake and Will become parents to an adorable baby girl and Rick and Angelo are around and doing well. This is Ed’s story. Ed works at Trinity Publishing for Blake and we met him back in book #1 Making It Personal. Ed’s a down to earth guy who speaks his mind, he enjoys his job and playing rugby. He likes spending time with his teammate Colin…as a matter of fact he likes spending time with Colin so much that he wants them to be friends with benefits…or at least that’s what he starts out wanting but as Ed and Colin spend time together Ed begins to realize that what he feels and wants from Colin goes beyond friends with benefits, but the question is ‘what does Colin want?’Colin’s wanted Ed for a long time. He just never thought his straight friend would ever want something more from him but when opportunity knocks…Colin’s not only willing to open the door he’ll happily prop it open if it means having a chance at the man who monopolizes his dreams. In spite of office & family drama and unexpected ex’s and thankfully with the help of some good friends, Colin and Ed manage to work through Ed’s coming to terms with his sexuality and a bit of insecurity on the part of both men.I loved the honesty between these to men, not that they didn’t have their misunderstandings, but they both worked hard to try and be honest with each other. Colin was sweet, patient and supportive of Ed. While Ed may have hesitated at times, ultimately, he always faced up to how he felt about things and at times he may have even a little help from his friends but in the end Ed knew what he wanted and was willing to persist in his efforts to be the kind of man Colin wanted and would be proud of.Cornell Collins is once again the narrator for this book and I’ve enjoyed having the continuity of the same voices for these characters from story to story. The voice that was Ed in the first book was the same one that I heard in this book and I enjoyed this a lot. After listening to all 3 of these audio books back to back by the time I got to the final one it felt like listening to friends sharing their stories with me. I’ve developed a sincere appreciation for listening to audio books like this that are from a series and have the same MCs or as was the case with this series the same core set of characters. With the first book, Making It Personal, we had Blake and Will as the MCs but Ed, Rick, Karen and few other secondary characters were in this book and carried through to the second book, Personal Changes, where Rick became one of the MCs as we watched his story with Angelo unfold and in book 3 again we are given the same cast of characters, with the addition of Angelo, as Ed and Colin’s story unfolds and I’ve really enjoyed having the same person narrate each book giving me the continuity of having the characters voices remain the same from story to story. I’ve enjoyed hearing these stories on audio and with my fingers crossed that Cornell Collins will continue as the narrator I look forward to hearing more and spending a few more hours with the familiar voices of this group of co-workers and friends.********************A audio book copy of ‘Personal Secrets’ was graciously provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    The third couple in this series about the men at Trinity Publishing focuses on Ed, the office manager, and a mate of his he plays rugby with on the weekends. The story picks up at the birth of CEO Blake and now novelist Will’s daughter. But this time I got to see Ed’s point of view, and the more I found out, the more fascinated I became. Talk about secrets – Ed has kept some of them hidden even from himself. But when he and Colin have one drink too many and get physical together one night, there is no escaping the fact that Ed has a few new truths to deal with. This novel is the story of the journey he takes as he discovers what it is like to be gay, out, and in love with his friend.Ed comes from a lower class background, but had enough talent to go to university, and managed to get a great job. He has always told himself that he is straight. Yes, he “experimented” when he was younger, but he assumes every man does. When he discovers how hot he gets when he and Colin get closer than they ever have before, and the attraction doesn’t vanish when the hangover is dealt with, Ed has to admit something else may be going on. It’s a good thing he has some gay friends (Rick and Angelo from book two) whom he can ask for help and advice – Ed left to his own devices is more than a bit clueless. It was good to see how Ed, once he is confronted with irrefutable facts, no longer deceives himself. He is an honest guy who says it as it is, and he applies that same honesty to his personal life. Sometimes he needs a bit of poking and prodding to stay the course, but what are friends for, right?Colin is from a very different background, and he knows he is gay, but he never felt the need to announce that fact to the guys in his weekend rugby team. He has been ogling Ed for a while, but never expected his interest to be returned. When Ed turns out to be bisexual and interested, Colin can’t resist. Despite the fact that it’s not an easy ride, what with quite a few mistakes Ed makes as he learns how to be in a relationship with a man, Colin hangs on. How could he not? He and Ed always got along when they were friends and that is an excellent basis for more, as far as Colin is concerned. But, as he finds out, trying to have a relationship, with all its obstacles, misunderstandings, and exes interfering, is quite a different cup of tea!If you liked the other books in this series and want to find out how Will, Blake, Rick, and Angelo are doing, if two British blokes from very different backgrounds figuring out how to relate as lovers make you curious, and if you’re looking for a read that is funny, hot, and full of aha moments as friendship grows into love, then you will probably like this novel.NOTE: This book was provided by the author for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews.

    This is the sort of story that I love to curl up in bed with, knowing I'm in for a treat - the story will be sweet, the sex will be hot and the ending will be happy - and Personal Secrets did not disappoint.For a start, how could you not like Ed? He's big, he plays rugby and he's discovering that he likes - really likes - Colin. I loved Ed and Colin's journey as they discovered how compatible they were sexually but how both were a little unsure of the whole emotional involvement as their relationship headed that way. There is focus on Ed's insecurities as he wonders whether he is 'gay enough' to keep Colin. It was sweet to see how insecure he was about his own attractiveness although Colin obviously thought he was gorgeous.This is a story of finding out what the heart wants and the challenges to be faced. For Colin, coming out to the rugby team is relatively easy. He doesn't advertise but he doesn't hide who he is. For Ed, the story is very different and I loved to see his coming out journey - coming out to himself, to his team mates, to his closest friends, to his work colleagues, him mum and the rest of his family. It was emotional without being over the top dramatic.There was some drama that had a slight soap-opera feel, particularly with Blake's new PA but this could be forgiven in the overall scheme of the story. It was wonderful to see appearances of the characters from the previous books, particularly Blake, Will and their little baby.This was warm and sexy and a nice end to the series.I publish all my m/m reviews on my blog so if you want to see all my m/m reviews in one place come visit at Because Two Men Are Better Than One!

    Aaaand the final one in my Personal bundle. I'm glad to say: This one was a lot better than the other two. I actually really enjoyed this. Huge part of it, was of course, Ed. I adore this guy! He made me laugh, he broke my heart and he made it all better. Because, I have to be honest, KC Wells' writing just doesn't do it for me. Even though I did feel better about this one, in the grand scheme of things, her style doesn't really speak to me. It's more the little things now, instead of basically everything in the books prior, but there is still a lot of telling going on. A lot of conversations and thoughts that felt artificial and forced to me. But I really liked the characters here. Ed was my favorite guy so far, with Colin coming in a close second. But Ed was the star. I liked how he had to work hard to open himself up for Colin and the possiblity of being with a man. The little misunderstandings weren't terribly original, but at least these guys were able to open their mouths and TALK. So, yeah. Writing still not my cup of tea. But the rest of it was pretty good. 3 happy-and-farewell stars from me.

    Ed and Colin's TaleLoved this couple and their very intense love affair.Ed has been with us from the start of this series and remains a constant favorite of mine.I loved him from the onset.Sexy,brash,love-able,funny ,protective of those he loves and type who speaks his mind and doesn't give a crap about what others think.Ed up until this point has been the loyal friend to all and a great guy to work with and for.He always seemed happy yet perhaps a bit lonely without even realizing it.Ed's love life has been lacking of late and seeing all of those around him finding love and happiness has him thinking about his own life.Does he want to find what his Boss and Co workers have found or is happy with how his life is at this moment? For Ed he has never had a problem with his friends and boss being gay as he has been with both men and women.It matters not he loves and cares for them as well as being protective over them and enjoys seeing them happy .How they chose to live their life is their business and not his place to judge them.Ed and Colin have been best buds for over a year and yet one night with much drink under their belts changes things between them and their friendship.A night of a hot sexual gratification between them changes things and has Ed questioning his own sexual preferences.Was this encounter just about sexual release or is he truly attracted to Colin?Colin on the other hand has had a thing for Ed for sometime but knows he is straight and has never made a move on him yet this encounter has him thinking could he have more than friendship with Ed?Colin is comfortable in his own skin and has no problem letting people he knows he is gay.Ed on they other hand has to find his way to decide if he is straight,bi sexual or gay.I loved this couple as Ed was so different from Colin he was had a hard edge to him yet friendly and kind but the kind of man who scared others to death.Colin was the sensitive and kind and funny type who was comfortable in his own skin and enjoyed life to the fullest.This couple had amazing chemistry super hot sexual encounters who were truly made for one another.Each of them different yet had much in common with each other yet the perfect mate for one another.And emotional tale of a couple who struggle to find balance in their relationship when one who hasn't come to terms with his own sexuality and what other people think of him of being in a relationship with another man yet the other one could not care the least what people thought of them.We saw a lot of ups and downs for this couple but we also saw a couple who truly loved one another who just need to find a way to be a couple. Of all the couples throughout the stories this couple had to deal with more hate and bigotry from others and those who were small minded.Perhaps being Rugby players had something to do with that.As with any relationship you have those who accept and hate you for who and what you are and who you chose to love.I loved the story from cover to cover.I loved Ed from the beginning and I so wanted him to find his own happiness so I was thrilled to be along the ride with him as he found the love of his life.I loved how every time you though you had Ed figured out he did something that surprised you had you admitting you didn't know him as well as you think you did.Another awesome tale that carried its characters from one book to the next that had you laughing one moment and crying the next.A recommend series to all.We loved the entire series and its characters and will definitely be re-reading about them at a later date.Another series for the keeper shelf and looking so forward to this authors latest releases.5 stars for us

    You know what I love about this book? Yes, there’s hot British rugby players, but that’s not it (though it doesn't hurt LOL). And sure, we get to see more of the guys who were the main characters in the previous books in the series (I’m a sucker for revisiting favorite couples later on to see where they’ve been and where they are now). But it’s Ed Fellows who quickly captured my attention with his rough, masculine ways and attitude, and his “what the heck” approach to the feelings he’s developed for his teammate Colin.Ed may not know what to do with his feelings for Colin, but Colin is very aware of his own feelings for Ed—feelings he’s had for quite a while now, but never acted on since he thought Ed was straight. Or at least he did until one particular night…The chemistry between these two is hot and it was pretty entertaining getting Ed’s side of things as he starts experiencing a relationship with Colin-both physical and emotional. When I read the book, I was totally taken with the two of them together, but listening to the audio made their story even more appealing.Cornell Collins does an excellent job with the narration, I absolutely LOVE his accent and the way he brings Ed to life with his more gruff and more heavily accented voice made this a delight to listen to—it really helped emphasize the differences between Ed and Colin. The pacing was perfect, and this is one of those audiobooks that when someone would come over to me while I was listening, they would get my “are you really interrupting me right now???” look.Personal Secrets is a great addition to this series, and I really enjoyed reading and listening to this story. The story itself gets 4.5 stars from me, and the narration is definitely a full 5 stars. This book is meant for readers/listeners who are 18+ for adult language and sexual content.

    Oh Ed! <3 I absolutely loved this book! I've loved the entire series so much, but I think this one has just stolen the top spot as my favourite. I didn't think KC would be able to top Rick and Angelo's story in Personal Changes, but I was so so wrong.First off, I want to comment on that stunning cover. I know how the old saying goes, and I've heard countless times that you should never judge a book by its cover, but hot damn! Ed is just so perfect and beautiful! It's love, I'm telling you! Those eyes, and that glorious beard... *happy sigh* I pictured Ed and Colin exactly as they are on the cover as I read this. I hate it when you pick up a book and the cover models are NOTHING like the characters in the book, or when the cover has absolutely no relation to the story. I think the cover for this is just so perfect.So, on with my review of the story itself. Well I was always going to love it, wasn't I? This series has never disappointed me and neither has KC Wells. I had really high hopes for this one. I was so excited to read it because I just knew the story would be sweet and romantic and beautifully written. Once again, I was definitely not disappointed. Ed's story was friggin' amazing. Ever since he was first introduced in Making it Personal, I had been dying to know more about him. As the series progressed, I was absolutely desperate for Ed's story and all I wanted was to see him fall in love and live happily ever after (yes, I am a hopeless romantic!). This story ticked all my boxes and was absolutely everything I could have hoped for.Colin and Ed were just so right together. From their very first encounter, right up to the very last page, I was completely captivated by their romance. I loved watching them go from friends to lovers, and I loved watching their feelings for one another develop and grow into something truly beautiful. The story had very little drama in it, which was nice. Of course there were some issues that Ed and Colin had to face, such as the problems with that bastard Murphy and then Ed coming out to his friends and his family, but none of it was too over the top and the drama didn't dominate the story. Any misunderstandings were solved pretty quickly, which I appreciated. I get so sick of reading romances where there is some completely pointless misunderstanding and the two main characters don't speak to each other for months. There was none of that here, thankfully.Something else that was nice was Ed's easy acceptance of his feelings for Colin. There wasn't too much in the way of "but I'm not gay" or "I don't want to admit that I'm gay" scenes. Ed was obviously going through a huge change in his life and he'd never been in a relationship with a man before, but he didn't let that overwhelm him or ruin things. Colin was extremely supportive and considerate, which was so lovely. Colin really did win my heart too. He was the perfect partner for Ed and I totally agreed with Will when he said that Ed seemed to have finally met his match!Another thing I really loved about Personal Secrets was that we got to see plenty more of Blake, Will, Rick and Angelo. Plus we got to meet baby Sophie! I was so happy to see Rick again - and quite a bit of him too - because alongside Ed he is definitely one of my favourite characters in this series. Hell, he's one of my favourite characters in the entire genre. And I'm not going to give anything away, but there was one particular scene with Rick and Angelo that had me smiling like crazy.I would recommend this book to anyone. It really is such a fab addition to the series and I don't want this series to ever come to an end. I'm desperately looking for other characters that could get their own story, just because I really want to see more of the entire cast. How about Rod? *hint hint* Pretty please? If he gets his own story, we'll get to see more of Ed and Colin, right?! Because seriously, I'll never get tired of reading about Ed and Colin. Note: I was provided an ARC of Personal Secrets by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you so much, KC! I've been dying to read Ed's story for so long, and it was an absolute privilege :)

    Nous retrouvons avec bonheur l'univers de la série de KC Wells dans ce troisième opus, centré sur Ed. Ed vous savez, ce grand costaud au lourd accent cockney qui est le bras droit de Blake, et se conduit comme un papa ours avec ses amis et collègues de Trinity publishing, se mêlant de tout, grondant, réconfortant, et protégeant. Ed aime sa vieille maman, son club de rugby, vider des pintes de bière dans les pubs avec ses potes, et s'envoyer en l'air avec de jolies femmes pas farouches. Et puis un soir, alors qu'il est vraiment, vraiment bien alcoolisé, et que son partenaire de rugby Colin le raccompagne chez lui, il se retrouve à l'embrasser voracement, puis à profiter d'une fellation partagée. Pas que ce soit vraiment nouveau pour Ed, il avait déjà expérimenté un peu à l'université. Mais avec Colin, il a vraiment envie d'aller plus loin... et il fonce. Le sexe entre homme, plus exactement avec Colin, c'est plus que chaud, mais c'est la partie facile. Se demander s'il est gay, ou bi ou autre chose, c'est plus compliqué. Admettre qu'un grand gars velu, macho, pilier de son équipe et buveur de bière est gay, Ed a du mal se faire à l'idée. Se dire qu'il peut plaire à un homme magnifique comme Colin, intelligent et cultivé, lui le p'tit gars de banlieue, fils d'une femme de ménage et d'un ouvrier, il a du mal aussi... comme avec tous ces « trucs romantiques »... Et c'est un délice de suivre les doutes et les interrogations de cet adorable nounours sur la manière de se conduire quand on sort avec un homme, quand on couche avec un homme...quand on tombe amoureux d'ce gars. Quand à Colin, il est rieur, attentionné, sexy et courageux. Il désire Ed son coéquipier depuis longtemps, et l'avoir soudain dans son lit, c'est presque trop beau pour y croire. Mais il veut plus, beaucoup plus. Il saura pourtant faire preuve de patience pour laisser le temps à Ed d'évoluer, et le laisser libre de faire ses choix... alors même qu'il le voudrait menotté dans son lit pour qu'il n'en parte jamais ! C'est presque Mister perfect, ce gars là. J'aurais parfois souhaité qu'il soit un peu moins lisse, un peu plus agressif... mais pas moyen et on le comprend : Chaque fois qu'il est énervé ou en colère, l'auteur le place face à un Ed penaud et désemparé qui le regarde de ses jolis yeux verts en lui disant « j'ai merdé, j'suis un con » , et il fond. Nous avec. C'est totalement déloyal, mais impossible d'en vouloir à ce grand Teddy Bear sexy ! C'est ensemble que ce couple très viril va affronter toutes les embuches, l'homophobie de certains joueurs, les soucis familiaux, les sorties du placard. Non seulement la romance est vraiment adorable et très sexy à l'image des deux hommes, et les scènes de sexe nombreuses et très chaudes, comme KC sait si bien les écrire (nous amenant proche de l'auto combustion !) , mais en plus, nous retrouvons avec bonheur Will et Blake qui viennent d'avoir leur petite fille, Angelo et Rick qui décident d'officialiser leur union, ainsi que toute la sympathique équipe de Trinity publishing. Un vrai plaisir. 4,7/5

    Blake Davis et son mari Will sont ravis lorsque Ed Fellows se présente à l'hôpital la nuit où leur fille naît, même s'il est recouvert de boue pour avoir joué au rugby et même s'il a bu au point d'être pratiquement ivre. Son co-équipier Colin est le Bon Samaritain qui l'a amené là, et quand il ramène Ed chez lui, Colin est remercié par... une pipe. Il n'a aucun problème avec ça. Il désire Ed depuis qu'il a rejoint l'équipe de rugby, il y a plus de quatorze mois. Le seul problème est que Colin avait supposé, jusqu'à maintenant qu'Ed était hétéro. Sauf que l'homme qui l'a "remercié" n'a pas vraiment l'air de l'être...Et les problèmes commencent le lendemain matin, quand Ed se réveille et trouve un Colin presque nu, endormi sur son canapé. Le problème est que, pour une raison quelconque, il n'arrive pas à chasser Colin de son esprit. D'accord, ce n'était pas la première fellation qu'Ed avait obtenue ni faite d'ailleurs, mais c'était il y a très, très longtemps, non ? Et pourquoi Ed en veut-il plus maintenant ?Avec des amis tels que Rick, Angelo, Blake et Will pour le conseiller, Ed s'engage sur une route totalement inconnue, et il a du mal à accepter que, peut-être, la ligne qu'il s'était tracée n'est pas aussi droite qu'il l'avait d'abord imaginée...Troisième tome de la série "Personnal", voici à nouveau une nouvelle aventure d'un des membres de la maison d'édition tenue par Blake. Cette fois-ci, c'est son bras-droit, Ed Fellows qui se trouve - presque par inadvertance - attiré par son ami et équipier de son club de Rugby. Et pour un gars qui vient de la banlieue de Londres, parle avec un accent de la "zone" à couper au couteau, sa vie va connaître de profonds changements, tant sur le plan personnel que professionnel.Heureusement, il est très bien entouré et on retrouve avec plaisir les deux couples des tomes précédentes - Blake et Will et Angelo et Rick. Et sa vie qu'il croyait simple, entouré par ses amis et sa famille va exploser autour de lui. Il va devoir faire face à de nombreux problèmes, dont l'acceptation de sa nouvelle situation par ses collègues, ses équipiers et sa nombreuse famille, l'homophobie violente et les prises à partie de personnes qu'il pensait connaître mais qui se révèlent sous un autre jour.Sincèrement, on ne peut que tomber littéralement amoureux de ce couple si différent, mais qui ne peut arriver à s'éloigner l'un de l'autre et qui font face de front. De part leur sport favori, ils sont très mâles, mais cela n'empêche ni la tendresse, ni la douceur. K.C. Wells est passée maître dans l'art de nous faire plonger à pieds joints pour ses héros.Initialement, cette série devait s'arrêter là, mais ô joie, suite à la demande insistante de ses lecteurs et notamment de "son frère d'adoption", elle continue... Donc, suite au prochain épisode que je ne manquerais pour rien au monde !

    It is no secret that I am a huge fan of K.C Wells’ work. Her writing it beautifully crafted and her stories engaging. Personal Secrets was brilliantly yummy! I loved every moment (except for the 8 hours I had to work before I could start reading). The cover is brilliant too, just perfect representations of Ed and Colin.Ed and Colin = YUMMY! You will find no shortage of HOT in this book. Both men are very comfortable in their bodies and they know what they want. Even Ed, who doesn’t identify as gay at the start, goes for it. Physically these two are a bonfire worth of heat. Alongside the heat we see two men who are unsure of themselves and each other. It is adorable and heart-warming to watch their journey. You will not find any blushing virgins in this book, even though Ed is introduced to a whole new world of sex. It was a great change of pace not to have an MC deny his attraction. The real story and connection in this book is emotional. As a reader you enjoy a roller-coaster of feelings. How Ed and Colin feel towards each other is only the start, you get to see love, friendship, hate, support, family and commitment.I can’t quite explain how the real life flow of this book made me feel. The flow and ebb of emotions made me fall in love. The rugby team made me gooey, Ed’s mum made me angry, Will, Blake, Angelo and Rick made me sappy. The tension is believable and has a level of truth and reality. For me this is 6 stars! 5 stars for a truly fabulous book and an extra star because there is a Lauren in Sydney in the book and that made me smile. This is a warm, delightful story that had me cheering on Ed and Colin from the first moment through to the happy ending. Revisiting with MCs from previous books in the series was a bonus. Personal Secrets is a MUST read. It was truly wonderful.

    KC Wells says this is the last in the "Personal" series.. I am sad to leave the Trinity Publishing world, but this story is a good one to go out on. This is Ed's story, the feisty office manager, but more than that we also get more tidbits from the previous couples, Will & Blake, and Rick & Angelo. This is a tight sweet story that fits in beautifully with Making it Personal, More than Personal, and Personal Changes, without too much angst and a gorgeous HEA without disturbing the HEA's of the others. I watched in awe how Ed worked through his fears and his amazement of not just being with a man but being in a relationship. I loved the development of Colin and Ed's relationship, I loved the reaction of those closest to them, and I am convinced that we need to be promoting this type of reaction rather than any else. Someone choice of sexual partner does not affect their ability to play sports, love those close to them, their friendships, their work and Ed and Colin's friends and family showcase this for the rest of us to follow.Whilst not actually a GFY story, as Ed has some MM history, I like the simple message that tags can box you in. Maybe in order to mainstream LGBTQIA we need to lose the tags and labels and just go with, "here is the person/s that I have chosen to love". Ed and Colin's relationship is hot, their sex is hot, and the development from friends to friends with benefits to lovers to partners is full of funny quirky bits and poignant moments. I loved it, thank you KC for this lovely ending to the series ( 8-( does it have to end??)...

    I enjoyed this more than all of the others in this series, in part due to the fact that it's GFY/OFY and in part because of the characters themselves. It was hot, sweet, and angsty. Just perfect. Ed, the office manager at Trinity Publishing, is hot for his rugby teammate, Colin and after a win one night, while hanging out drinking at Ed's apartment, Ed asks Colin if they can exchange hand jobs which then become blowjobs. But far from feeling bad about it the next morning, the previously thought to be straight Ed is really quite intrigued and fascinated by Colin and vice versa. This is a sweet romance, exploring Ed's feelings about being gay and coming out and his fears about telling his family-- much like many of the other stories along these lines, and yet, it had a different feel to it. Somehow it seemed more realistic and I just fell in love with both MCs. I recommend this series to all lovers of M/M romance. 4.5 stars.

    Yum Ed you are my kind of man!! Sorry to see the end of this series but glad we got to catch up with everyone. Ed and Colin were a great couple and who doesn't love Rugby players (the description of Ed had me swooning). Loved the journey Ed took in discovering himself through his relationship with Colin and a little help from his friends - can I just say he was just such a nice guy!Wonder if Rod and Derek will get a story?Thanks KC, I eagerly await your next book x

    3.75 stars. These two were sweet and HAWT and sweet. But a bit too sweet and taking a step away from reality in a couple places. I know it's fiction, but I like my realistic fiction. First, Colin outs Ed to the entire rugby team right at the beginning. When Ed leaves, he's the bad guy? Um.....what? And then the whole Samantha plot line was unnecessary and unrealistic. I just didn't get it. Otherwise, cute story with rugby players!

    I have little idea how to rate this.4 for the story5 for the writing2 for my connection to the characters Although bonus points for Will, Blake, Rick, Angelo and lots of Rugby players. That may or may not average to 4 stars but since rarely can K.C. Wells do anything wrong in my eyes, it's going to be a 4.

    This was super sweet. Tooth ache sweet. Ed is a wonderful character that I fell in love with immediately. Colin is just as great, if a little daft at times. Not a lot of angst, just a lot of sweet discovery, kindness, love and so much kissing and sex. A great addition to this series. Rob's getting a book next, right? Please?

    **Review based on an eARC provided by authorOriginal Blog Post: http://headouttheoven.blogspot.com/20...When I read More Than Personal (Personal Book#2.5), there was a scene where I got tickled pink over the thought of Ed. He was walking into the hospital waiting room for the birth of Blake's and Will's daughter and with him was a hunky hunk of a man in rugby uniform, splattered in mud and just looking plain delicious. Will had caught him eyeing his friend, Ed, and his gaydar went PING! His name was Colin. That was the scene that made my heart to thump. Maybe, just maybe, Ms Wells would find the time to tell us the tale of that hunky rugby player? And well she did. And I am grinning, grinning, grinning. It's painful that grin, especially when it started at the beginning of the book and hasn't even ended yet.For those who missed out on that novella, it is really not a problem as that scene is written into this one, Personal Secrets, from Colin's point of view. And it just confirmed what Will had suspected all along. (However, it is best to read it so as not to miss out on some things HOT!)That night turned out to be the definitive turning point in Ed's life. It was that night where his outlook on life, his whole perspective on who he was, changed. It was that night when he discovered something so unexpected that it shocked him speechless. It also made him act idiotic. Curiously, he absolutely loved it.The secrets are really those which Ed kept from himself. Colin helped him find his way around them, finding his hands full. Thanks to friends like Rick, Will and Blake, Ed had all the support he needed to face up to himself.There was not a whole lot of drama going on here, just personal conflicts that quickly turned mountains out of a mole hills. These were easily ironed out, again thanks to the support group and Ed himself. He is the type to never back down, even after over thinking things, acting the idiot or simply being stupid. He is also the type who accepts his shortcomings. His insecurities he had to deal with once in a while. And Colin was there to guide him through it all.The relationship between these two was a very light read and yet it was a detailed revelation. I have read all of the Personal books but it is this book, this one about Ed and Colin, which is probably my favorite of the lot. It shows how men, as macho and bearish as could be, still show their insecurities and I found that refreshing. Ed was a delight to read, especially when it was so easy 'listening' to his Cockney accent contrasting mightily with Colin's more refined one. The two were a perfect fit. As for Colin. This man, he is a dream whom many a man (and woman!) dream of having in their lives. He is patient, considerate, loving. That he is a hunk is a bonus.As for their love affair? Let's just say that this one has Making It Personal (Personal #1) beat. This was a truly erotic, HOT! and romantic book. This explains my grinning, for your information.Overall, author K.C. Wells has given us another winner among her other winners. It's just that....this is my favorite. I just love it.
