I could not wait for this book!!! I loved Matt and Julian for what they were trying to accomplish with their vision and dream. So the Halfway House is open for business in book 2 of the series, enter Cameron Pierce. Cam has been paroled after nine years, eight months, two weeks and five days of living hell. Having been accused of involuntary manslaughter for killing his baby sister's boyfriend at the tender age of 17. Cam pulled my heart strings HARD! I just wanted something good to happen for him, enter Hunter Donovon, Assistant State Attorney. Hunter is everything that I imagined good and he could be perfect for Cam. Jaime takes us through twist and plot turns,hits you with a couple of "What the HELL" moments, I coud not put this book down! The authors writing skills have grown from the first to second book, the plot was intriguing with just enough mystery to keep me guessing to the very end. WELL DONE! As much as I loved Cam & Hunter I have to say that Cam's housemate Cole stole the show, with his nonfiltered mouth and his love of "sleepers". ***squee***Jaime has told me that Cole's book is the next in the series. Again.I.Cannot.Wait

A Hunted Man by Jamie Reese
This is the second part of The Men of Half-Way House series, and I have to say, it is getting better and better! While i LOVE Julian, i think i fell in love with Hunter more :)
In this series we get to meet the new resident, Cameron Pierce. Released after 10 years of a life in hell, he has to come to Half Way House to try and start fresh. Our friends Matt and Julian find him some work down at the local Diner with little old Lucy and Bill, the sweetest couple ever. He becomes "The Coffee Guy" and quickly learns the "art" of coffee, called foam art, and takes pride in his work.
While working at the diner, Cam meets regular, Hunter, the Asst. States Attorney. Hunter, being the lawyer that he is, is married to his job and has no time for relationships outside of work. But upon seeing each other it is def lust at first sight. But Cam being Cam, who hasn't been in circulation in 10 years and having to learn to hide any types of emotions, he tries to ignore it.
It is a long, slow torture, the heat between these two..but it is so, so sweet. Hunter is the most patient person i think i have ever read about. I just love their chemistry together, i think the accentuate each other perfectly. Cam who is so unsure of everything and confident Hunter, the rock.
We also get a few new residents that you will meet throughout the book, and i have to say, i love the new quirky addition and I will be impatiently waiting on book 3!!
I give this book 4.5 Foam Hearts!!

“Don’t give up, okay?”
Oh, these two! First of all, I recommend you read the first book of the series, A Better Man so you can understand this one for sure. And because Julian and Matt are worth it.
*Julian is all growly and protective of Matt in this one, he’s so freaking cute when he does it*
But onto Cam and Hunter. They are so different, yet they find a common ground and I really love how their relationship slowly builds, how they flirt and how Cam can make Hunter blush. But what I really loved about this book is that, no matter what life threw at them, especially at Cam – and life threw a LOT – Hunter was there, he didn’t move an inch away from Cam, proving with deeds and his actions how he felt because he knew Cam wasn’t ready to hear it. I swear, a man as patient as Hunter is one you can hardly find, even in fiction!
He believed in Cam and helped him through everything. Oh and Hunter’s dad was probably my fave character. Knew how to embarrass his forty-year-old son, a successful and fierce DA, at that.
They were funny, they were cute and they were hot together.
“You know, it’s not easy finding someone who puts up with my staring and ogling, so you can’t just walk out and leave me.”
Cam chuckled weakly. “I like the way you ogle me. It’s kinda hot.”
“I like it when you manhandle me.”
“If you want, I’ll throw you over my shoulder and pound on my chest too,” Hunter teased.
“Are you ever going to get tired of saving me?”
“You’re my bumblebee.”
