An Alisa Review: The Things We Do by J.D. Walker


Rating:  3 stars out of 5


Scotty Reedville has had his office job for two years, long enough to fall for Ryker Callen, head of the landscaping crews. It’s ridiculous, really. How could he fall for someone so completely his opposite in every way? Answer: he couldn’t help it. Still, Scotty would never make a move because he doesn’t think Ryker would go out with a guy who wears braces and snaps at everyone.


However, when Ryker is injured in a softball game one weekend and needs a place to live temporarily that doesn’t have steps, Scotty’s boss Gavin suggests he stay with Scotty. The time they spend together is both the best and worst thing that has ever happened to Scotty, and he doesn’t want it to end. But it must.


Thankfully, Ryker has other plans. Can the two men stumble their way to love?


This was such a cute and sweet story.  Scotty has been admiring Ryker from afar knowing that no one would want him, brace face and all.  When their boss pretty much invites Ryker to live with Scotty while he is injured Scotty gets put in the best and worst situation of his life.


Scotty keeps everyone at a distance with his snappish attitude but can’t help and hope that he will find that special someone he needs and you can’t help but feel for him.  He and Ryker both keep their feelings to themselves for so long that it’s almost too late when they finally do.  It was wonderful watching these two dance around each other for so long but finally opening up enough to let the other in.


The cover art by Written Ink Design gives a wonderful visual of both Scotty and Ryker.
