About The Book

When a single dad and a newly outed veterinarian meet by chance, it takes red-cheeked conversations, a tentative friendship, and the willingness to put their hearts on the line to show these men they’re made for each other. 

Single dad Davis Jackson is busy balancing his coffee shop and being the best dad he can be. That doesn’t mean he’s not lonely. After a fumbling encounter with a man who looks as gorgeous as he does unhappy, Davis is left wondering who the mystery man is.  

All Davis knows is that he has never felt such an instant attraction to anyone before, but when he discovers the brown-eyed man’s identity, it’s clear the recently out-of-the-closet veterinarian is lost and quite possibly broken.  

Book two in Becca Seymour’s low-angst, feel-good LGBTQ series, True-blue. In the small town of Kirkby, there are busybodies, dogs who cause chaos, families who have the “best” of timing, and where good men have the opportunity to find their perfect match.

The Review

“I’ve got a life,” I grunted. And I did, sort of. Admittedly it involved me juggling owning and running my business, keeping house, and most importantly, being the best dad possible. That shit right there took time. Considering there was barely time to shit, sleep or even jerk off, how in the hell could I handle more than I already had?”—I’ve Got You

Well, we’re about to find out because Davis Jackson, a single dad and small business owner, has met the man of his dreams. Unfortunately, the man of his dreams is Scott Anderson—a recently outed veterinarian who has some baggage. Baggage that got dumped on Davis’ best friends, Tanner and Carter. 

“I’ve Got You” is the second in the “True-blue” stories, a character-linked series about the small-town inhabitants of Kirkby. The first book, “Let Me Show You,” is certainly worth reading if you want to know more about the characters in this charming, minimal angsty story about the healing power of finding love with the right person, at the right time and in the right place.

The relatable story is told through the first-person view of the four linked characters. It makes for an honest assessment of relationships and is often amusing, brutal and truthful. The bond between Davis and Scott progresses from instant attraction to building something more enduring. 

Sexual tension is there, and the culminating love scenes are satisfyingly steamy but what I liked most was the focus on the characters—their strengths, struggles and weaknesses.  

Seymour’s writing style is frank and conversational. Bantering would also be descriptive of her tone. I like that feeling of being included in the story instead of being an observer; I think you’ll like it too.
