Blog Tour: Hide and Seek by TM Smith #Review #Giveaway ~ Guest Spot

Dusty Anderson left his hometown in Justin, Texas for the Big Apple not long after graduating high school with dreams of becoming an actor. A year later, no closer to realizing his dream but pretty damn close to being broke, he comes across a flyer in a local gay bar that provides a solution to his dilemma. Six years later, Dusty has all but forgotten his dream to be an actor. The family he gained when he went to work at All Cocks and the job itself are enough for him, for now at least. 

David Thompson is barely twenty-one, high on life and starting his second year at NYU as an Art student. Now that he is old enough to enjoy the city’s night life, David finds his first crush at a local hot spot in the village, The Monster Bar. Young love is laid to rest though, when David comes out to his mother and older brother with disastrous results. 

A tragic incident at the hands of David’s brother changes the course of all of their lives and brings the two together, but is it coincidence or fate? Regardless of unlikely circumstance, Dusty is inexplicably drawn to David, who suddenly finds himself alone in the world. Protective of David from the start, Dusty realizes his extended family at All Cocks and his best friend Kory will not understand this new relationship. Fearing the worst, Dusty plays a dangerous game of hide and seek, risking everything to keep David safe and sheltered. 

But hiding can only last for so long, and David and Dusty aren’t the only ones dealing with uncertainties. The Dimir men find that the one thing they’ve longed for might be within reach and Dusty’s father, Dean, arrives in town unexpectedly with secrets of his own. Truths come out and trust is put to the test. Can the All Cocks family find the happiness they deserve? 

This is the 6th book in the All Cocks stories series, the series would read best if read in order, but each book can be read as a standalone story.

Hide and Seek is TM Smith’s next installment of her All Cocks series. The last book led to this one… actually the last few kind of led to it. Certainly it was building.

 Here we have Dusty’s story. Dusty is one of the models for the All Cocks INC porn site. He’s been having a secret affair with someone that has the power to destroy friendships and so much more.

David is as much a victim as Jon, Gio, and all the others from the night club massacre that changed so many lives. But getting everyone to see that David isn’t like his murderous brother could prove tricky.

On top of all of this Dusty is dealing with his father’s, Dale, visit with huge news. So a lot happens in this book. A lot of beginnings for so many of the characters of this series.  I have no idea if this is the last book of the series or not but like I said, the last few books were leading up to this one.

Hide & Seek is a very emotional story that deals with abuse, bigotry, violence, and serious healing. Many parts of this story hit hard especially since the Pulse Nightclub shooting in June of this year. But at the same time it was good that this was written. We can’t shy away from the hate crimes because we don’t want to talk about it. We need to talk about it. 

It’s always wonderful to see all these characters again and this was a perfect story to wrap a lot of storylines up. I hope it’s not the end of this series but if it is it closed well.

I will say, the only thing that was confusing were the names. A lot of D’s. First there’s the MC’s Dusty and David. David’s brother Dale and his mother Diane, Dusty’s father Dean. And the nick name that Dusty and David use for each other: D. I found myself concentrating a little too hard on the who is who aspect. Other than that I wouldn’t change a thing.

Great addition.

The reviews are in!

"This was a sweet story, aside from the bad things David must overcome, and I was not disappointed with any of it. The All Cocks family continues to grow, and I can’t wait to see what’s coming next."
- Just Jen from The Blogger Girls

"This series is fabulous. Each set of men have their own trials and tribulations and are connected like a large family. Each time a read a story in this book I say this is my favorite. They just get better and better. I have no idea how T.M. Smith will top this but I can't wait to see."
- Cathy Brockman Romance Author
