    1. Every week Drayton sends a letter. But he never receives a reply. He doesn't expect one. His best friend, his lover, has been in prison for ten years. His crime? Saving Dray's life. Vannguard Shaw never had much: an alcoholic father who kept him around for the welfare money and a lifetime of bruises. That all changed when he met Dray, who became his confidante, his boyfriend, his first and his everything. Dray is the owner of D & V Infinity, a wildly successful car manufacturing company. He' [...]


    2. Target release date: May 2, 2017Word count: 124K This story can be read as a stand-alone. Couples from prior stories briefly reappear.No mystery/suspense/action element in this one. No trigger warnings.A little angst and a lot of love (some tough love and some sweet, sappy love).


    3. 4.5 StarsLike all of the books in the Men of the Halfway House series, A Worthy Man is a story about second chances. Of overcoming your past and the obstacles that life throws your way. It's about learning that you do have worth, no matter how others may have tried to tear you down. It's about love.As the author promised, A Worthy Man is much less angsty than the previous book. In fact, there isn't much angst at all and what of it there is feels organic. It's a sweet and romantic story, and whil [...]

    6. I'm such a party pooper today, sorry:( I swear I 've been reading this since it came out. Which is almost a year ago. A few pages here and there every month. SO LOOOOONG! So many repetitive, inner monologues. I had to suspend disbelief multiple times and roll my eyes at the cheesiness. But good writing and I loved the flashbacks. 2.75 stars rounded up I guess.


    7. 4.5 Swoony StarsIf you want a heart wrenching, punch you in the guts, but ultimately, happy ever after love story, then this is for you!This is hurt comfort at its very best. Vann and Dray are unfairly and brutally separated from each other for years. Time and distance however, never dimmed the love they had for the other, a love that gave them strength and support and hope to survive. Now they finally have a second chance at happiness, but it’s going take a lot of healing and adjustments on b [...]


    8. 4.75 starsFor some reason I never read this series and this book opened my eyes to the beauty that is Jaime Reese and her characters. This book was just fucking beautiful. I liked the fact that the book completely a stand alone, I was curious about the other guys but that's it. This story is just a beautiful romance, it was sad sometimes because these guys went trough a lot, specially Vann but i loved the fact that they didn't let bad stuff defeat them. This is definitely a feel good book with a [...]


    9. 5 StarsThis is one of only a handful of book series that I have consistently given full stars to each subsequent book. That in itself is a rarity and it’s so damn impressive that Reese keeps upping the ante with every story she releases within The Men of Halfway House series, making each one even more gripping and all-consuming than the last. Here, we witness a truly epic love story between opposites Drayton and Vann. They initially met when they were teenagers – Drayton 17 and Vann 14 – e [...]


    10. *** Marvelous, heartwarming, gut wrenching, loving, and deeply gripping !* Outstanding ! * A magnificent story ! *Dray and Vann, together seven years, the hatred of a small town, wrongly imprisoned for 10 years, we now get to see a deep, amazing, serious novel. Dray was a rich kid, a nerd, but his hateful mom cut off his inheritance and disowned him - all because he loved Vann. When younger, Vann fended off Dray's bullies and their friendship formed a forever love. Dray crafted a new life, a new [...]


    11. 4.25 starsWhen I read A Restored Man I somehow got it in my head that Drayton was this old dude. So it took me a while to get the right image in my head when I started this book. I think it's the name, I really dislike the name Drayton. It just sounds old Luckily the story was great. No old dudes here.Drayton and Vann met when Vann was 14 and Drayton was 17. They became fast friends and eventually something more (I loved that they waited with their first kiss for Vann's 18th birthday).But then D [...]


    12. 3 starsSo I'm right in the middle of the rating scale here on GR because that's exactly how I felt about the story. It had something that kept my interest but at the same time I wanted to reach the end so I could move on.The characters were very likeable and I liked the idea of the plot a lot. Unfortunately, the actual story was different than what I expected.With Vann being in prison for 10 years I expected to read about his struggle to accustom to living free again or even his reaction to ever [...]


    13. 3.5 StarsPros:-The second chance romance came across as genuine and sweet.-The protagonists were lovable and had me rooting for them.-The chemistry was palpable.-The flashbacks weren't disruptive and gave us an insight into how their friendship started and grew into more. Cons:-The dialogue was repetitive.-The pace of the story started to drag at 50% and never picked up again. -This book could've been 25% shorter and it still would've accomplished the same story. It was an endearing story overal [...]


    14. Pure RomanceThe Second Chance/Reunited Lovers trope is always a favorite but I've never read it done quite so well as this. I've loved every book in this series and Jaime Reese is an auto-buy. This story was a bit different than the first few, as Vann Shaw is coming out after 10 years, when he'd thought he was in for life. That of course, has colored his whole psyche, making a huge difference in how he's facing being free again. His first love, Drayton, is there to meet him, after spending 10 ye [...]


    15. A Pure & Simplistic RomanceDraytonHis vision, his world. He made this book intro fab! And, he was persona perfection!! Faithful, loving, nurturing and a geek through and through. His character was well and beautifully written. Drayton “Dray”Birth Name: Drayton DelereuxHeight: 6’1″Age: 34DOB: 1983Eyes: GrayHair: Dark brownOccupation: Owner of D&V Infinity, Corp. Developer of electric motor.Personality/Characteristics: Reserved. Observant. Has a need for always finding “the answe [...]


    16. Millions of stars for this oneI really loved A Restored Man, but this even blew that one out of the water!! I honestly have no words for how good this isThere was so much love, passion, tenderness and belief in this [kind of] second chances story featuring Dray and Vann [odd names though seriously, Drayton and Vannguard] their looks, in their touches, the intensity built up over ten years of loneliness and grief that you just knew [and prayed like mad] that everything would work out for themd th [...]


    17. Two lost souls who find love with each other. Drayton and Vann were both abused by the people who were supposed to love them unconditionally. They survived by finding each other, but are torn apart for ten years. I couldn't wait to read this story after I devoured the rest of the series. I was not disappointed! They reconnect after Vann is finally released from prison. He was incarcerated after saving Drayton's life. He shouldn't have had to serve so much time, but Drayton's corrupt senator mom [...]


    18. 5+ 'D+V=∞' stars. "Sometimes you just need one person to make you feel like you fit in this world."You know when you read a book so good, that there's just no words that will do it justice? That's how I kind of feel about this book. I don't really have a word or sentence to tell you how much I loved this book. How much it broke me but than put me back together ten times stronger.In a nutshell, Vann and Dray are two halves of a whole. Literally. They just really worked. It was incredible readin [...]



    19. Every time I read one of the ‘Men of Halfway House” novels I think it is better than the previous one. This being the fifth of the loosely linked stories, and no exception to the aforementioned “rule”, I am beginning to run out of words to say how much I like this series: the characters and their issues, the emotional and other obstacles they have to overcome, and the passion they share. At the end of ‘A Worthy Man’ I was so full of emotions that it took me two days before I am now a [...]


    20. 4 starsI loved that these guys were always in love and there was never any question about it even during the 10 year separation. And they remained loyal to each other! I also loved the slow burn.On the flip side, this felt a little too long for me. Also, a number of the plot points had me rolling my eyes a little (view spoiler)[ like that Vann, with no experience and education can just step in, be the only one who can design the car and then lead the design team to the successful launch. Sorry, [...]


    21. AHhhhh, yay!! I loved this! But unfortunately I stayed up until 2:30 at night to finish it, so I must go to bed. Review to come shortly :D~*~So I've only read the second book of this series before this one, and I saw that it was probably best to read this series in order, but I felt, at least for this one, it wasn't needed. There wasn't a lot you needed to know about other characters from previous books to follow the plot of this one.Which is, Vanngaurd Shaw has been in prison for 10 years becau [...]


    22. Rationally this book was a 2 star read. There is so much wrong with it, I don't even know where to start. This series is about prisoners who try to start a new life after their sentence ends. So this should deal with bad guys, truth is however, they easily qualify as saints, if not even angels. Everyone in this story is so black or white, it is ridiculous. In addition the story is so cheesy, that I am really offended that I liked it. And that is the other side to the picture. I didn't just like [...]


    23. Loved this book! Thanks Bibliophile - great recommendation! Vann and Dray were perfect together after all the pain they endured. Highly recommended!



    24. There's nothing more beautiful than devoted love. And Vann and Dray got it all. Devoted, strong love, loyalty. I was sighing all the time. Vann and Dray are beautiful together. I loved how strong their love to each other. They should thank Jessie and Aidan for everything. Vann's love to Dray is unquestionable, and Dray to Vann as well. I adored this series, I hope there's some more to come. Ben, maybe? Could be intresting considering Ben's current condition.Recommended!


    25. Damn, but every book in this series is such an emotional ride! A Worthy Man is right up there, but I do think this one is even more relationship focused (which sounds weird to say with this series, I know) making it even more romantic to read. The setup is unique in that the two MC’s, Vann and Drayton have known one another since their teens and have been in love since about that same time. And they don’t have that, “Oh aren’t they perfect for each other, how sweet” kind of love, they [...]


    26. I'm new to this series and I'm in awe of Jaime Reese's work after reading A Worthy Man. This can absolutely be read as a standalone and definitely a reread material. Vann and Dray are childhood sweethearts with Vann being the white trash, while Dray the rich kid. After the incident that tore them apart, Vann was serving a life sentence, but Dray never gave up hope of reuniting with his lover again. The first quarter of the book is such a massive tearjerker moments. Is the kind of good cry that I [...]


    27. Unbelievable! Seriously. Vann and Drayton's story left me speechless and that DOESN'T happen very often. I wish I had more to say but I'm still numb from this awesomeness.Buy it. Read it. You won't regret it.


    28. Amazing! This one was very different than the others in the series in that Vann and Dray have already been a couple. The story is told with brief flashbacks so we can experience their deep love and really see how they can still be so in love after 10 years of no contact. The question is this book isn't whether or not they love each other enough but if they can find a way back to one another after so long. Another one that had me reaching for the tissues on a fairly constant basis. My heart just [...]
