    ~4.5~ "You are music and sunshine and laughter and light. And I don't think I can live without it now that I finally know what it feels like to be alive." Alex, Michael's (Luke's partner; book 1) best friend and former professional fútbol player, still has one foot in the closet. The people close to Alex know he's gay, but his traditional Latino father prefers the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, and for Alex, la familia lo es todo. Alex tried to come out publicly once and paid a price. ~4.5~ "You are music and sunshine and laughter and light. And I don't think I can live without it now that I finally know what it feels like to be alive." Alex, Michael's (Luke's partner; book 1) best friend and former professional fútbol player, still has one foot in the closet. The people close to Alex know he's gay, but his traditional Latino father prefers the "don't ask, don't tell" policy, and for Alex, la familia lo es todo. Alex tried to come out publicly once and paid a price. Now, he's wary and hides behind humour and snarky remarks. When Nate (Jake's friend who's kind of a shit to Bran in book 2) leases a condo in Santa Monica, he doesn't expect to be so drawn to his landlord and neighbor. But Alex's smiles and kindness, not to mention his ass in those tight running shorts, are infectious, and Nate falls into delirious lust. (Sorry, darlings; had to crop per Goodread's nasty TOS.) The smexy bits in this book are seriously scorching. When the boys go at it fast and hard ... OH, MY. HAWTT HAWTT HAWTT There is an element of exploration to the sex, which makes it that much hotter, so, yeah, invest in some iced tea or something before reading. Nate, who is the first-person narrator of this story, slowly comes to term with being bisexual. He knows his feelings for Alex are more than sex, but Nate doesn't do emotions. He still hasn't dealt with what happened last summer with Julie. And Julie keeps coming round ... Can we talk about Julie for a second? I understand she was dealing with an emotional fallout, but she seriously needed to get therapy and leave Nate the fuck alone. And Nate needed to grow a pair and sit down and really TALK to her. Because THAT situation wasn't working for anyone. Alex is a little unfair at the end; he's not the greatest communicator either. He tends to turn everything into a joke. But thank fuck Nate gets it, finally GETS it, and is present for Alex when Alex needs him most. Ah, that last chapter is lovely! (view spoiler)[But does Nate move in with Alex, split his time between Santa Monica and Oxnard? I NEED to know! (hide spoiler)] This is a romantic, sexy story about two very intense men making a go at a forever kind of thing. No dog this time, but plenty of kissing and touching and FEELS. "I didn't know what was missing in my life until I met you. I can't see clearly or think straight around you, but I don't need to because I can feel."

And I don't think I can live without it now that I finally know what it feels like to be alive." - Nate “The Right Time” is the third book in Lane Hayes’s ‘Right and Wrong’ series, can be read as a standalone and features Alex (Michael’s best friend – character we met in book1) and Nate (Jack’s friend – character we met in book2). Nate owns a real estate development company in Oxnard, but recently he has to move in Santa Monica because of a project. He’s straight (it seems at the beginning), he’s divorced and he just leased a condo in the building where his friend, Jack lives. Alex is a former professional fútbol player. He’s gay, he’s partially out, his family knowing about his sexual orientation. His fans and his former colleagues don’t know anything about it. Due the fact he respects too much his traditional Latino values and father he preferred not to come out publicly. Alex is Nate’s new landlord. He’s anything like Nate. He’s friendly, engaging and funny. At first, Nate is reluctant to accept Alex’s friendship. He think he doesn't need any new friend in the city since he will be there only for a few months. But as they get to know each other better, he feels more and more drawn to this sexy Latino man. He doesn’t seem to understand this...attraction he feels for Alex. Why now and why for him? In the past he was with another man but everything ended on a bad note. Needless to say he’s kinda scarred to get involved with another man again. Yes, Nate is bi, but he preferred all these years to be only with women. While at first be doesn’t want to question what he feels toward his landlord/new friend, after a while he can’t lie to himself anymore and admits (only to himself at first) that he wants more with him than a simple friendship. I enjoyed this one like all the books I’ve read by this author, but I must admit this one was not my favorite in the series. Like all the books in this series, this one was sweet and sexy, easy to read and pretty light. The entire book is told from Nate’s perspective. I liked it, but I have to say there were times when it was necessary Alex’s POV. I’m sure I would have enjoyed more. However, Nate’s POV was done well. Nate is ‘the serious’ between these two men. I liked how he comes to terms he’s (still) bi (Duhh...) and I also liked there’s no drama regarding this aspect. Alex was more fun in IMO. I really enjoyed his personality. He’s open, friendly, cute, charming and I loved how he teased Nate. I had fun reading their interactions. Overall he was an enjoyable character, but there were a few times when he got on my nerves. There’s a little miscommunication through the end between the two men (just a little), but I wasn't too bothered by it, even if usually ‘I’m allergic’. The story has the perfect amount of steam, just to make the story more interesting and of course sexy and the angst was pretty low. That being said, “The Right Time” was an enjoyable read and I’m looking forward to read more by this author. “I want to give you something. A song. A piece of music. Something for you to remember me. I don’t want you to hear Beethoven and feel sad about things that never could be. I want to give you… hope.”

I guess I just associate "tit" with M/F books and I found it odd here. Don't get me wrong- I did enjoy it! and I hope I'm not turning off anyone from it. I think this will be an "everyone loved it more than me" case. 3.5 Stars. ***Preview*** GAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!! A new Lane Hayes book!!!!!

    4.25 Stars! This has to be one of the perfect examples of a story where opposites attract. Nate is a workaholic. He has a small group of friends he's friendly with. Other people he can do without. He's quite the loner and would rather be left alone. He's straight-ish. Owns and runs his real estate agency. He's crap at relationships and has accepted he'll die alone. But his new landlord is about the flip his world upside down and turn it wrong side out. Alex is friendly and outgoing.

He's generally a happy go lucky guy. He's close to his family. He's a retired soccer player who now owns and runs his own gym, Definition. He's gay and out to his friends and family. An incident in his past has scared him off of coming completely out. But meeting his new renter he's thinking he might be ready. Nate wasn't looking for any new friends but Alex is a whirlwind that he gets swept up in. He's confused by not only his attraction to this man but the fact he wants to be around him all the time. He finds himself behaving and doing things he usually wouldn't because of Alex. And soon the attraction comes to head for both of them and things get heated pretty quickly. Things don't move as quickly though. I enjoyed the buildup of their relationship. It very much was a bit of a friends with benefits kind of relationship that turned into more without them realizing it. They were good for each other. Nate needed someone who made him live and feel. Alex did that for him. Alex needed someone he could depend on and trust to be there for the hard times. Nate was there for him. I really liked this one. Maybe more than the first two which really surprised me. But I really liked them together. They had really great chemistry and they had some really sexy steamy scenes that felt authentic. I loved them. Happy reading dolls! xx

But I felt there was something inconsistent with his character. When he first felt the attraction towards Alex he kind of freaked out internally. "I gulped, wondering what the fuck was wrong with me. Why was I noticing this stuff? It wasn’t like me. At all." BUT later on, we learn that not only this is not his first time with a man, but that in the past he was in a serious relationship with a guy and they were even planning on moving in together!! And suddenly he is wondering why he is salivating over a hot stud's abs? Alex Well...Alex was a great laid back guy...when he wasn't having hissy fits out of the blue and sometimes for stupid reasons. Like when he called Nate a racist because he was too self concious to speak Spanish. And what the heck was up with the "pretend you 're my boyfriend so that my dad takes my coming out seriously"? This confused me too. And at the end, why so much drama? I understand Nate carrying this big weight on his shoulders, but Alex? Throwing this last big tantrum for something that didn't concern him directly, instead of offering Nate support? Also, Jules...The woman drove me nuts. She was acting like a teenager. Girl! He said no! Back off already! It's not that I didn't like the story at all, I did and it was no hardship to finish this book. I guess I had a difficult time with the character development, is all. The sex as always is hot, the writing great and the HEA solid. For the fans of Lane Hayes, you should read it. Clearly I'm in the minority. I do hope that the series continues.

    2.5 stars I think I am part of the minority group who doesn't like this book. I just didn't like the couple... and MAINLY it had something to do with Alex. This book is written from sole perspective of Nate Erickson. There is always something hugely appealing for me when the character seems to be aloof, not totally outgoing, prefer to be avoiding anything remotely social (except for closed friends), and dealing with pain or loss in an closed-off way. Maybe it's the introvert in me. So I did like 2.5 stars I think I am part of the minority group who doesn't like this book.

Maybe it's the introvert in me. So I did like Nate. As a character, I also thought Nate was pretty consistent throughout the book. Alex, on the other hand, is a different story. I found him rather self-absorbed and all over the place. Alex makes everything to be about himself. The first time, when Alex accuses Nate of being racist, simply because Nate understands Spanish but doesn't speak it, I just crunched my head in confusion. Say what? He quickly judges Nate without asking why Nate doesn't practice Spanish? Then there are also asking Nate to be fake-boyfriend, so Alex could ease his father into his sexuality. But the nail in the coffin for me is near the end when (view spoiler)[Alex discovers Nate's dead child, and instead of being understanding of Nate's PAINFUL experience, he makes it like Nate is lying to him. (hide spoiler)] Well, excuuuse me Alex, but some people deal with pain and loss in his own way, okay? I sort of wish that at that moment, this story is about Nate reconnecting with his first love, Scott instead. Because somehow I thought the romance would be more meaningful, more emotional, something like Jake and Brandon from the previous book. I disliked it that Nate is the one to fix everything -- I kinda wanted to kick Alex out of the curb right about then. I also need to write this opinion: most of the reviews that in favorable of this story like the sex scenes. I don't read romance for the sex. I skim a lot of sex scenes during my two decades reading romance -- and the fact that it's male/male sex scenes don't matter. I enjoy sex scenes when I feel for the characters; it should be something rewarding (in addition to the romance) rather that it's there just to add steamy level. Since I feel indifferent for Nate and Alex, I totally don't care for their sex scenes. Besides, I saw a couple of 'dirty talk' in it, and it turned me off real quick. I could see why MM readers enjoying the steamy level out of this, though. On that note, I think this series doesn't do well for me (I only like book #2, both book #1 and this one are total misses). I think I will give up this series for good. Hayes' other series, Better Than, seem to work better for me in overall.

Also, set in Los Angeles, where I lived for many years. Let’s do this! The book started off ok…I was intrigued by Nate and what drove his workaholic self. There were clearly issues there between his divorce, and his friends-with-benefits Julie, and his running away to LA to “work”. He needed something…that was obvious. What surprised him to find was that "something" came in the form of his landlord, Alex. Nate and Alex become friends, and though the attraction is there, both of the men think Nate is straight…so no hope for romance, right? You all know the answer to this! :) The story is hot…with a slow build…and you really get the sense that a friendship is building more than trying to push a relationship. I liked that they went running together, ate dinners together, worked out together, surfed together…we get to know the guys and there was no rush there. And when they finally do explore their feelings, it’s SUPER SEXY. What didn’t work for me: well, disappointingly, the be-my-fake-boyfriend card was thrown in (Alex, a former professional soccer player, wanted to come ‘out’ to his dad and the public and used Nate as a boyfriend-buffer) and it felt random. Alex, a strong, self-assured character, who embraces being gay, needs a fake boyfriend? It felt out of place. Also, I had a REAL problem with the character of Julie. Look, I don’t doubt that there are plenty of women out there pining over a male friend, especially one that they’ve hooked up with before. But Julie was a hot mess and since we’re seeing her through Nate’s POV, she was kinda pathetic. But, what really threw me for a loop, and admittedly, this is me just being super picky about something that may just annoy me: “He kissed my shoulder playfully, then licked a seductive trail to my left tit…” I think…after reading hundreds and hundreds of m/m books…this is the first time (that I can recall), seeing the word tit in a sex scene. And I’m not quite sure why…but it just really put me off. I realize it’s such a small thing, and a totally personal opinion. I had a really hard time getting past it though! The story itself, and the book as a whole, was ok. The slow build, friends to lovers angles worked. The sometimes repetitive writing and the little irks I detailed above didn’t. I can see why so many people really enjoyed this one. For me, it was…ok.

    4 stars! This is my fourth book by this author and I'm pleasantly becoming hooked on her books. I was looking forward to reading Alex's story since he was introduced in "The Right Words". Alex is a sexy Latin ex soccer player who's still not quite out to the public eye but is also not hiding his sexuality. He rents out one of his apartments to the successful and quiet realtor business man Nate who is divorce, straight, and a workaholic.

"The Right Time" is another fantastic addition to this series and I've come to enjoy the slow burn of this author's books. It's actually one of my favorite things even though Nate/Alex feel the chemistry their sexual relationship starts up with touches, and looks just such a delicious built up. Nate/Alex were definitely sexy and Alex was such a dirty talker I loved how he made Nate blush. Another thing I liked about these guys was how different they were form each other personality wise and how each one brought the best of the other. The thing I didn't like about this book was how Nate's past was handled. See, Nate went through something heartbreaking really heartbreaking, and I felt like he needed to mourn but it was rushed. Alex's attitude was so blasé like cry and move on. For me that kinda of pain it's not something you move on form more like you learn to live with. Otherwise I think I would of given this book a higher rating. But regardless it's still was a fantastic read and plus it was great to see the guys from the other books. I hope to go back and read Brandon and Jake's book since I did skip it.❤

    Hmmmmmm. A good read from a favored author of the genre. Alex, a retired pro soccer player, meets Nate, a loner businessman while Nate moves in next door temporarily while working on a project. Friendship, flirtation, and sparks fly. There were a lot of little things I enjoyed about this installment of the series. My favorite part was the way music was woven in.

"Music is life. It's the pulse, the beat. It's everything!" I wholeheartedly agree, and I loved that its poignancy was subtlely placed throughout the story. I appreciated the steady growth of the romance that Hayes told. I will admit though, that I was a tad disappointed with how the climax and ending played out. I thought it was a bit dramatic and OTT. Alex was a pretty level-headed guy throughout most of the book. Nate made a point to talk about how good he (Alex) was at compartmentalizing his negative feelings. So Alex's diva moments felt a little out of character for me as the climax was playing out. And then it was like a finger snapping, and it was over. All ok. I got whip lash. Overall very good story and well written. Little laugh out loud moments that resonated for me. "At thirty-six I was pretty sure I was too old to stand in any line that didn't lead directly to a caffeine infusion." Well done, but Bran's story is still my favorite.

    3.5 Stars Unsurprisingly, this was my favourite story of the series.

Here, I felt for Nate. I could probably even say I related to him in many ways. It also doesn't hurt that he and Alex were scorching hot together. So, yeah, definitely the best in series, for me.

    4 Stars I think what was best expressed and what most resonated with me can be summed up with two quotes from this book "When you plot the bad ending in your head before you’ve experienced anything good, you’ll never try." "Fear is a powerful thing. It motivates you or it keeps you from doing what you love.” I really enjoyed this book, I'm not a huge fan of over angsty and unnecessary emotional roller coasters just for the purpose of drama, I liked that the emotions felt genuine and Alex and Nate f 4 Stars I think what was best expressed and what most resonated with me can be summed up with two quotes from this book "When you plot the bad ending in your head before you’ve experienced anything good, you’ll never try."

    I liked this so much that I tried to extend my listening time. *sigh* Thank you Lane Hayes and Michael Ferraiuolo. Nate and Alex are to all appearances polar opposites, and maybe they are, but they also complement each other like that pinch of salt or kiss of maple syrup. They're better together. Nate is Jake's friend from The Wrong Man, in which he came off as slightly cold or regimented, and he is a bit.

Nate is Jake's friend from The Wrong Man, in which he came off as slightly cold or regimented, and he is a bit. Life, his parents, and maybe a bit of his genetic makeup have made him cautious and over analytical. Luckily life has also put Alex in his path. Alex is Michael's friend from The Right Words; a retired fútbol player, WeHo gym owner, and all around nice guy, with an infectious joie de vivre. Nate finds himself saying yes to things he never imagined and enjoying them: surfing with someone else, speaking Spanish, unconcerned about his accent, revisiting his attraction to men (I was so glad this wasn't a GFY story). But it isn't a one way street, and Alex isn't someone without a care in the world. He needs and wants and anchor, a place to call home and Nate can be that for him. Alex carries the weight of his father's judgement and expectations, but, proving he's a better person than me, he chooses to see good in him too. Tonio Reyes, I didn't miss you. In this book, like the rest of the series, though the MC get together early and often, the road to love is slow and deliberate built on shared experiences outside of the bedroom, though those were scorching and revealing too. It makes the love sweeter and utterly believable. I liked that though Alex had the, ostensibly, bigger drama of coming out publicly (he was out to his family & circle of friends) being he was a retired athlete, Nate's story was equally, if not more moving, for it's specificity and (I'm looking at you last 20%) utterly heart wrenching. This was a love story between true adults who have had life experiences and learned from them. When their HEA comes we believe it completely.

    Liked the 3rd part of the Right And Wrong series. Alex (Alejandro *drool*) and Nate were just perfectly imperfect together. Loved their chemistry and the way they learned to build up a relationship. As always Lane’s writing is excellent, the character development is well done, and the sex is sheet burning hot! The Right Time is an amazing addition to the series, an entertaining written book full of feelings and hot passion. Recommended. :)

I liked Alex and Nate as main characters. I thought they meshed really well and the progress of their relationship was good. Although I pictured Alex quite differently when I first met him in the first book. Anyway, Nate was the better one in my opinion. He seemed steady and logical. He was like a real character. Alex, on the other hand, I felt really disappointed. I was excited that he was going to get his own book but he left me feeling confused. I felt like he was bipolar sometimes or I just could not keep track of his emotions. I thought Nate saw that as a good thing but I didn't. Alex made a big deal of almost a lot of things. The racism was like whaaaaat? I understood what he was trying to say but Nate wasn't even being a racist. Also the last part when his father mentioned something about Nate. Okay I was like wtf. Lemme put a spoiler tag but: (view spoiler)[Didn't he ask Nate not to tell him? Like Nate was about to tell Alex in his home but he was like nooooo don't tell me cuz it's the past and then he acted like an ass when he learned it was something big. Like WTF (hide spoiler)] Anyway, I wasn't that bothered about Julie. I liked how the previous two couples appeared! The sex was hot. Alex and Nate were so fucking hot like let's be real. It was sweet and wonderful when the story is on point. It could've been a lot better to be honest and I was quite disappointed because it's Alex's book! Anyway, the ending was just okay. I wish it was expound more than those summaries. It also took me a long time to finish because it was not one of those books that holds my attention for 24 hours. Overall, a good read but the previous two books are better.

    I'm wavering between 3 and 4 stars, but I'll go ahead and give it the bump. I loved Nate and Alex, and felt their relationship grew in a great way. What I didn't get was why Alex kept talking about "coming out" to his father, when his father had known he was gay since he was 18. His father just didn't want it public, which, yeah, bad dad, but still, he knew Alex was gay. The other thing that I didn't get was Alex's anger at the end revelation about Julie.

It just didn't fit his character and felt out of left field. One thing that's kinda bugged me this whole series is all the characters seem to have this mini-mine field of secrets, just waiting for someone to bumble onto them, and leaving the reader wondering what the heck is going on. A year ago, fifteen years ago, four years ago, these things kept getting alluded to, but then the reveal wasn't that big, and I just wondered why these things didn't just come out naturally in the story, instead of making them seem larger than they really were.

Unfortunately, how I felt sure that they would act when faced with mutual attraction and coming out of the closet more publicly wasn't what ended up being on the page. Alex suggesting to play Nate's wingman on his Big Gay Adventure and later asking him to be his "pretend" boyfriend so that he could have a visual aid when coming out (again) to his father, just didn't ring true to me. I felt like there was no way in hell these characters would be so boneheaded. Maybe if there had been a hint of self-awareness - a realization that the pretend boyfriend thing was a ridiculous idea and that Alex suggesting it was a deflection away from his growing feelings for Nate - I would have bought it. But taking those moments at face value was pretty hard to swallow. Ultimately, I liked the couple and enjoyed the book, but I could do without the author trying to clumsily cram tropes into a book that doesn't need them; her characters and her writing can stand on their own without the gimmicks.

Alex has always been an interesting background character in the books and I've been dying to see him fleshed out more. Now he's finally got his own story, I've got to say he's turned out to be one of my most favourite characters from the series. In fact he and Nate have pushed themselves into my 'top most loved Lane Hayes couples' list. I adored the connection she forged between recently divorced, perfectionist Nate, and the more outgoing, free spirited sporty Alex; who from their first meeting in the apartment buildings elevator, totally knocked the seemingly straight workaholic for six. Nate is not an impulsive man but something about his gorgeous, vibrant new landlord and neighbour makes him lose his tightly reined in inhibitions. This charismatic, sexy man with a smile that slays him, brings out feelings in Nate that he's pushed far back. Having settled instead for a life and marriage of professional convenience, instead of allowing himself to follow his true Inclination. The chemistry between him and Alex was perfection, even when they were just in friendship mode, but as the attraction spilled over into more than that and they move on to a fuck buddies style relationship, the sexual tension pulsated! I'm a ST whore and Lane Hayes never lets me down on that score, giving me the tummy flips on more than one occasion. Especially when the gorgeous Alex got Nate all of a dither, with his hot, take charge, hands on style of flirting....DAYUM!... there were some sexy, passionate stand offs between those two! Watching Nate claim, and begin to own, his true sexuality through those heated encounters was gorgeous. For rest of review follow Link-> http://bit.ly/1LUnZJz

I wasn't exactly sure how he and Nate were going to get together, cos Nate was so closed off and work-orientated BUT gradually Nate thawed and even admitted that he had actually been with a guy a long time ago, but no, he didn't have time for relationships and wasn't sure that he could actually go through with 'having sex with a guy thing' again. They came to a 'friends with bennies' arrangement, and for a while, that was enough for both of them BUT then Nate started to fall in love and had to start thinking about moving back to Oxnard for the sake of his sanity, cos he wasn't sure how Alex felt...and then the bomb dropped...wow!! Didn't see THAT one coming (view spoiler)[and I still don't know how Alex's father found out about it either???? (hide spoiler)] , but all's well that ends well. Thanks so much for this series Lane, it's been great.

I was excited for some drama but sadly no, not the kind I got. There was also A LOT going on that distracted from the relationship development. Work, gym workouts, volunteer coaching at the LGBT youth center, wing manning, a relationship from 15 years ago and parents dying….like WTF. Why can’t I just get a nice straight guy seduced into gay sex glory by a Latino soccer player too hot to resist. So 2.5 rounded up.

    I really enjoyed this book. Loved Alejandro's sunny personality: just what Nate needed in his life. A great story of opposit personalities that burn the sheets and give each other's lives what they were missing. The worst thing about the book was the Spanish. It looks like they gave someone with a knowledge of Spanish phrases without a context. The result is what you expect. I know that this only bothers to people who know the language, but Geezz, I wish authors were more considerate if they are I really enjoyed this book.

    Communication is a Key to Love! Fútbol, Spanglish, communication issues and Clark Kent glasses are parts of the Alex & Nate romance story. This is a slow burn story with bits of drama and bits of sweetness. I wasn’t a fan of Nate’s communication skills throughout the novel. I thought...could this man completely one sentence regarding his feelings! However, this story was very readable and kept to rhythm of the other two books in this series.
