You Are the Reason (The Tav #2) by Renae Kaye


 Davo’s a pretty average guy. He has a decent job, owns his own home, and spends his weekends at the pub. He fully accepts that he’s gay, but doesn’t want to be one of those gays, who are femme and girly. He likes football and other masculine pursuits, and firmly avoids anything that could be seen as femme—including relationships that last beyond fifteen minutes.

Then Davo’s friend and gay idol not only gets a boyfriend, but also adopts a baby girl. Davo is seriously spooked and scuttles down to the pub in fright. That’s where he meets Lee, who is cute from her cherry-red hair, to her pretty little dress and pointy red shoes. Davo is charmed—but how is that possible? He’s gay. Isn’t he? Then Lee tells him he’s actually a guy—he just likes to wear women’s dresses occasionally. Thoroughly confused about an attraction that’s out of character for him, Davo begins the long journey to where he can accept himself without caring what everyone else thinks.


* 4,7 STARS *

Davo is gay, an absolute macho gay guy. He hates pink, and girly gay stuff.

And if you're a guy, call him Davo instead of Dave. Girls allowed to call him Dave, because it's a femme thingy.
At least until he met two 'girls' in his life that makes his life turning upside down.
Maxine and Lee Brennan.
And Davo insist that he's gay guy, a macho man, but GAY. GAY GAY GAY.

There's NO WAY Lee turned him into STRAIGHT. Eww ! Being straight is out of a question.
But Lee is a girl...Um, wait. Yeah, at least until Lee told him that he's not a girl. Lee is a guy. Only loveeeeeeeed wearing dress.
And Dave is kinda shock, happy that he's still gay, but shock that Lee is a guy. Kinda confusing situation for him for sure.
But Lee is a determined guy, and he wants Dave !
And Dave is allergic with 'PINK', no pink, pink is too girlie.

I loved Lee and Dave (I'm a girl, I can call him Dave), and 'the relationship' between Maxine and 'Uncle Dave' is beyond amazing.

I haven't read book one of this series, but I think it's okay to read it as a stand alone, though there's some spoilers about Jake and Patty-cake here.
Now I need to read that one. Jake seemed like 'my kind of guy'.

I can't stop smiling and loved every minute reading it ! And the sex ! It was freakin' HOT ! Dave is a man with lots and lots of *cough* ... 'energy', if you know what I mean.

And Lee is just reminds me of Jay !
I need this kind of story more and more.. Renae Kaye did it again !



Renae KayeRenae Kaye is a lover and hoarder of books who thinks libraries are devilish places because they make you give the books back. She consumed her first adult romance book at the tender age of thirteen and hasn’t stopped since. After years – and thousands of stories! – of not having book characters do what she wants, she decided she would write her own novel and found the characters still didn’t do what she wanted. It hasn’t stopped her though. She believes that maybe one day the world will create a perfect couple – and it will be the most boring story ever. So until then she is stuck with quirky, snarky and imperfect characters who just want their story told.

Renae lives in Perth, Western Australia and writes in five minute snatches between the demands of two kids, a forbearing husband, too many pets, too much housework and her beloved veggie garden. She is a survivor of being the youngest in a large family and believes that laughter (and a good book) can cure anything.
