"Hot Weather" reviews
TwoLips Reviews: 4.5

"Hot Weather is an awesome read along the lines of a summer-time romance movie that is about more than sex, about growing up and finding the magic of a real relationship, which of course includes lava hot sex! Matthew Haldeman-Time’s debut novel is explosive and will be sure to create a legion of fans who will be eagerly awaiting his next release. His characters are funny, charming, lovable but most of all super hot. ... Keith is charming, funny and has surprising depths that will leave the reader wanting for more. As with all great books Hot Weather will leave you clamouring for more and sighing wistfully for summers gone by!"
Literary Nymphs Reviews: 4.5

"Hot Weather is a sweet romance filled with hopes, longing and sweaty summer days. Mr. Haldeman-Time pens a playful tale where his delightfully realistic characters spark a sizzling chemistry the moment they first meet. This is a well-written and sexy story that readers will quickly devour."
Elisa Rolle says that she's a fangirl.

"I absolutely love every book written by Matthew Haldeman-Time. His characters are real, hot, romantic, great.
Please Matthew, please... give us more, I will read it!"
Joyfully Reviewed: 5 stars!

"Hot Weather was my first foray into M/M romances and I was very pleasantly surprised. The story was very well written with characters the author made became real as life in my mind. You could easily imagine this story happening during a summer heat wave. I found it interesting to see the dynamic play out between John and Keith and I found myself rooting for Keith to get what he wanted in the end, and bring John around to his way of thinking. There was at least one super hot scene involving M/M erotica but it was so well written any lover of heterosexual romances as well M/M or F/F will enjoy it. I thoroughly enjoyed this authors writing and will look for other works by him in the future."
Louisa Clark calls "Hot Weather" indulgent and romantic.

"Hot Weather" is a sexy, fun read evoking memories of those carefree days of my youth when I would spread out a quilt on the cool grass under the shade of an ancient oak tree and I would stretch out on the quilt with my paperback, indulging myself with an afternoon of romance and sweet kisses.

From their very first meeting, there is a simmering passion between Keith and John with their flirty conversation, teasing smiles and casual touching. When there's an innocent kiss on the check, we treated to (in my opinion) one of the most erotic moments in the story. I love authors that slowly build the sexual tension between the lovers, creating a sensual, arousing mood that pleasantly warms my body and gently elevates my heart rate. Then when the lovers finally jump into bed and when we're finally treated to the sizzling sex, there's a strong sense of connection and falling in love.

The story reminds us why it's important in our adult lives, to slow down and savor life, to appreciate the simpler things like a sweet smile or a colorful sunset. Because it's those simple, little pleasures that enriches our lives, making all our frustration and other negative emotions just melt away and become insignificant. And when they finally happen, those bigger momentous events in our lives - like meeting a green-eyed waiter - we recognize and appreciate them for what they are. Something special and precious.

This is a beautiful story of patience and frustration, of love and passion. "Hot Weather" delivers exactly what I crave from my books, enthusiastically satisfying my romantic heart.

Highly recommended.

Teaching Sunflower
Jimmy had this weird, irritating way of always being right.
"Teaching Sunflower" is the sequel to "Still Sunflower."
Read "Still" first and "Teaching" second.  Thanks.

Still Sunflower

Purple and Magenta
“Are you this friendly with everyone?”

“You’re the only guy I’ve ever respected enough to keep my hands off of.
You’re the only person I’ve ever loved for more than three days.”

“Apparently, Bryan and Bryce have never dated the same guy before,
so this is all new territory for them.”

That simple glimpse of love and happiness was more powerful than any forceful thrust.

“Tell me why I can’t stop needing to be with someone I’ve never met.”
