Jamie Reece “A Restored Man” Cover Reveal

Title: A Restored Man
Series: The Men of Halfway House #3
Author: Jaime Reese
Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
Release Date: February 17, 2015
Cole Renzo thinks his greatest challenge is to behave for the remainder of his term at Halfway House. Until he meets his new boss, Ty Calloway, a man who ticks off every box on Cole’s list of interests.
A sought-after restorer and customizer of exotic and collectible cars, Ty had enough confidence to command what he wanted in life, until one fateful night changed everything. Almost two years later, hes slowly rebuilding his life with great control. He’s defied the odds and works tirelessly to be the man he once wasbut he still feels broken.
Coles candor and unfiltered personality awaken Tys barely-remembered desire to greet each new day with a smile, while Tys unwavering acceptance of Coles quirks and brash humor makes Cole feel as if he fits in for the first time in far too long. When a nemesis threatens Tys personal restoration and the things he holds dear, Cole is determined to protect their relationship, even if that means sacrificing everything hes worked so hard to achieve.
But Ty will have to let his guard down, surrender control, and admit he needs Cole first, even if that puts himself at risk of breaking beyond repair.

Excuse me, Ty said, before making his way to the kitchen. He poked his head inside and saw Cole bent over on the left hand side, searching for, then finding, a pan in the bottom drawer of the cabinet. He couldnt help the smile that tugged at his lips when he saw Spider-Man peeking out from the top of Coles jeans.

I told you to get out. Youre not fucking this up, Cole said, his back still turned to Ty.

Ty smiled, leaned up against the doorframe and waited.

Cole looked over his shoulder, a huge smile immediately spreading across his face. Hey, you, he said, straightening.

Ty walked over to him and wrapped an arm around Coles waist. He reached out and brushed his thumb against Coles cheek, his hand finally steadying once he grazed Coles warm skin.

Thats a big smile, Cole said.

I saw Spider-Man, Ty said, chuckling.

Cole raised an eyebrow and wrapped his arms around Tys waist. If I had known he turned you on that much, I would have worn a blue and red onesie to the shop under my work clothes.

Ty bit back a smile. He tugged on Coles T-shirt. You look good out of your shop clothes.

Cole pulled Ty closer. I look good out of these clothes too, he said, waggling his eyebrows.

Ty reached up and ran his finger along the edge of Coles beanie. Do you ever take this off?

When you sleep with me, you can take it off.

Ty looked into the mismatched eyes that held a wealth of mischief. Im not sleeping with you.

Cole pulled Ty into a kiss, gripping his hair, unmistakably guiding him exactly where he wanted Ty to be. Tys heart pounded relentlessly against his chest, his body betraying his last spoken words and demanding more contact. His fingers twisted the edge of Coles jeans, drawing him in, craving the closeness of Coles thick, hard body.

Cole withdrew, the desire unmistakably still burning in his eyes. Yes, you will, he said. You wont be able to resist this much awesomeness for long.

Ty bit his lip, trying to hide a smile. He liked it when Cole got feisty.

Cole ran the tip of his finger down Tys neck, then tugged at the collar of Tys polo shirt. Aww, you didnt dress up for me, he said with an exaggerated pout. Will I ever see you in a suit?

Why do you want to see me in a suit?

Seriously? You’d look hot in a suit. I’d probably want to rip it off.

So what’s the point of wearing the suit? Ty asked, tugging Cole closer.


Ty burst into laughter and touched his forehead to Coles. Youre impossible.

You should do that more often.

What’s that? Foreplay?

Laugh. Cole smiled. And wear suits. But I would totally be on board with foreplay, too, he finished, waggling his eyebrows.

Jaime Reese is the alter ego of an artist who loves the creative process of writing, just not about herself. Fiction is far more interesting. She has a weakness for broken, misunderstood heroes and feels everyone deserves a chance at love and life. An avid fan of a happy ending, she believes those endings acquired with a little difficulty are more cherished.
