    3. *side-eyeing all those stellar reviews*What the author was aiming for: A story about one tough cop and one Marine going through emotional turmoil, trying to save their marriage and their love with the help of their family.What we got: A story about two emotionally immature teenagers trapped in a grown men's bodies going hot and cold over each other, keeping us in a suspense, since we never know which one is going to be; Justice's family with theirting namesd their living arrangement that for the [...]


    4. 4.5 Stars.This is something new-literally and figuratively from author LaQuette, and I was delightfully surprised. Authors who step outside of their "comfort zones" take big risks. They can misfire and or lose fans. But the one thing they can always say is "I did that!"And guess what? LaQuette did that!This is not my first gay male romance, but this is my first AA gay romance, and I loved it! This is the story of two, grown, mature, professional men in a loving, albeit troubled, committed relati [...]


    5. I am SO glad I didn't read some of the reviews before I started this story. SO glad !! I loved this story !! The guys have been together for 21 years, married legally for 5 of those years. In those 5 years some real sad life crap happens to them. The story is about how they work through it. I've seen some complaints that jealousy was used as a tactic for opening ones eyes. The complaint is laughable because while it may be the oldest trick in the book ( side eye ) the manipulation continues to w [...]


    6. After NYPD officer Bryan is recovering from a gunshot wound to the chest he begins to think about what he wants in his life, his estranged husband, Justice. The only problem with that is that Justice is ready to call it quits and asks him for a divorce. Bryan decides to try to attempt to win Justice back. They both still love each other but Justice isn't sure that is enough. He he tired of Bryan keeping their relationship a secret and pushing him away.For being a short novella I thought this one [...]


    7. I was waiting for this story and in her usual flair Quette did not disappoint. I wanted more of Them more of Their story. I was happy with the care Quette took into sharing their story. She was able to convey the Truth that, Love knows Love and Nothing else matters. I was very pleased in the manner in which Quette took on this new step from traditional romance theme. She handled it with substance for a novella. We felt the love vibrate off the pages. You wanted Jussy and Brian to make it, you wa [...]


    8. "Love's Changes" is set in the world of LaQuette's "Queens of Kings" series, but can be enjoyed as a standalone novella. Bryan and Justice leap off the page, and you really feel for the two men and what they're going through. I love reading stories that follow up on what happens after the HEA, because let's be real -- relationships are WORK. They're up against external factors and the weight of everything that's happened between them over the years they've been together. Their story is inspiring [...]


    9. 4 HeartsJustice and Bryan have been together for twenty-one years, but the last five, since losing their daughter, has been a fight for the survival of their marriage. Justice has finally had enough of Bryan’s closeted lifestyle, and unwillingness to fight for them, and is ready for the divorce Bryan asked for five years ago.Bryan is recovering from a gunshot wound to the chest, and after coming out of his coma, and healed enough to start physical rehab, he is finally ready to make things righ [...]


    10. Curiously, what drew me to this book was the series title, Losing My Way. I was unfamiliar with the author or the earlier series Queens of Kings that this one is associated with. I couldn't resist a story about these guys who had been married and together a long time only to stumble and be on the brink of parting.The novella is associated with the other series and I believe the characters- at least Bryan- were in the earlier series. That being said, I had no trouble reading this as a standalone. [...]


    11. This book hit too many of my pet peeves for me to be able to recommend it.First peeve: An entire family with ironic and unusual names—The main character is Justice Amare and other family members are named Law, Free, True, Heart and Honor.Second Peeve: A character uses jealousy to get his man back.Third Peeve: Most of the exciting stuff in the couple’s life, including the stuff that has them splitting, happened before this story.Those things aren’t the only things in this book that I didn [...]


    12. LaQuette is a new author to me, but I took the chance because I am sucker for established couples who somehow lose their way. That is the premise of this story, and it delivered in all the ways that I loved most.Brian and Justice have been together for many, many years, but the chaos of life has begun taking a toll on their marriage and relationship. Brian is closeted at work at the NYPD, and Justice can’t take it anymore. He feels like he is playing second fiddle to Brian’s career. Sadly, B [...]


    13. High 5!!First of all, I was blown away when I discovered Justice was a guye author did a stupendous job keeping that under wraps until the big reveal. With that bein said, this book reads like any other LaQuette bookaning the heat and romance is there in abundance. You truly forget it's about two guys; I did and that says a lot about how the author grabs and keeps your attention!I cannot wait for the continuation of this series star read!!!


    14. This one didn't work for me. Given the length of time this couple had been together, I thought the struggle they were going through was unrealistic.I just found the plot and resolution unbelievable.*Received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review



    15. While this novella is related to the series King of Queens, it works perfectly as a stand alone (and I haven’t read King of Queens). We are faced with Bryan, a cop, and Justice, a Colonel, who have been together over twenty years. For the last five they have faced numerous challenges to their relationship and Bryan asked for a separation and presented divorce papers. Justice has been fighting for their relationship and his man for five years but Bryan getting nearly fatally shot has made him r [...]


    16. This is my first time reading anything from LaQuette and I thoroughly enjoyed Love's Changes. It's not a long read but the author still manages to get a lot of back history into the story plus keep the flow of the present going smoothly. Justice and Bryan have been together for twenty one years and married for several of those years. Until the last five years they had a rock solid relationship even with Justice being away in the military and Bryan working his way up the ladder for the NYPD. They [...]


    17. *** Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie in exchange for a fair and honest review. ***Bryan and Justice have been together for over twenty-one years, but the last five years have taken a toll on their marriage. So much so, that Justice asks Bryan for a divorce, even if they are still very much in love with each other. Not wanting to lose his husband, Bryan accepts his crazy sister-in-law's help as his last resort. Will her plan to bring them together work or will it be the last straw in their alre [...]


    18. I fell in love with both Bryan and Justice. These two men are both so strong, have strong jobs( one a marine the other a cop and former marine) but they lack one thing in their relationship. Communication.These two men have experienced so much hurt in the past in their relationship when they lost their daughter. It affected each men differently and instead of turning to one another they handled their grief differently.Because of their lack of communication their marriage is on the rocks and it m [...]


    19. This was such a beautiful novella. It's rare that a story of this length (75 pages) has the depth of plot and character that Love's Changes has.This is a story of miscommunication, misunderstanding and fighting for the one you love. Bryan and Justice have been together for 21 years, but shortly after getting legally married five years ago, something happens that tests their limits and puts them under a lot of stress. Add in their poor communication, long absences due to work and fears about bein [...]


    20. Love's Changes by LaQuette4 starsM/M RomanceTriggers: Infant deathI was given this book for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.This was a sweet story, however, I felt that this was only the beginning of their story. Most of this was about their background, how they came to where they are presently in their life, their relationship and how they see themselves. This was a very quick read, with a lot of information in it. The reader has to quickly understand what's going on, because LaQuette's [...]


    21. I wasn't a fan. There was too much that I didn't like:1. Jealousy as a way to get your husband back?2. Together for 21 years, married for how many? Separated for 5, but they still live together and have hot sex.3. One is in the closet, but only at work, and one is out, but yet the one out thinks the one in is ashamed?4. (view spoiler)[One changed his name several years ago and the other didn't notice? (hide spoiler)]5. No real communication.6. Meddling family7. Father orders his kids around at h [...]


    22. ~I received a free copy of this book to read for Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest review~3 stars M/MIf this book would have been longer I think it would have been better. Bryan was shot in the line of duty and realized that he wants to stay with his estranged husband Justice. Justice has wanted to be with Bryan the whole time, while Bryan didn’t but has now decided enough is enough. This was basically just a book with the two of them fighting back and forth on if they should stay [...]


    23. I purchased this in May and with so much going on, it slipped my mind to start it. I have loved Mac and her Amare cousins since Heart of the Matter. I got comfortable and started reading. Omg, I sooo loved the story you created for Bryan and Justice. The emotional turmoil they were going through was so relatable. Loss of a child and long distance relationships definitely take a toll. I knew my girl, True, was gonna get Justice straight, lol. Thank you for such a well written story of love, a lov [...]


    24. Lostd the changesChild's death is one marriage strain. For thus couple that's were the brake started. Both Justice n Bryan were going through but Family! Lived that the family helped n was as passionate about their marriage. Still waiting on True. I feel she go more secrets then anybody. I guess Martin ain't so straight


    25. I Love Justice and BryanWhat Justice and Bryan have is true love. They both needs to get their self together. They both know they cannot live without each other. Looking forward to reading more about them.


    26. This series has some my all-time favorite characters in this genre. I was thrilled for Bryan and Justice to work through their issues. It was so clear that their love never faded. Love is love.
