Someone needs to pinch web designer/humor blogger/Pittsburgh Ravens mega fan Mike Kneller. Hard. For years, Mike has been living his life for his younger sister Kelly and his four-year-old nephew Liam. He’d opened up his home to Kelly when she found herself pregnant at sixteen and facing having a baby alone. Sure, his days are filled with skinned knees, snotty noses, and the occasional mishap with stuffed superheroes, but he’s perfectly happy because he loves Liam as much as he loves his baby sister. Giving up a social life and going to bed alone is a small price to pay. Little does he know that someone on the Ravens is about to show Ravens goalie Bryn Mettler one of his vlog posts. Of course he’s not going to believe it when his phone rings and the world-famous netminder—and his goalie crush—is on the other end. I mean, life doesn’t work that way for ordinary, hardworking uncles like Mike. Does it?
Bryn Mettler is a superstar athlete and a major part of the Pittsburgh sports society. He seems to have it all. He’s well-dressed, handsome, wealthy, an elite goaltender, a famed philanthropist, and the holder of numerous medals and trophies. To date, there are two things that have avoided him: lifting that big shiny silver cup over his head and finding a man to settle down with. Now that he’s over thirty, Bryn is finding the gay club scene is wearing thin. His teammates’ wives have decided it’s their duty to the team—and to Bryn—to find him Mr. Right. He’s relatively sure the man who’ll capture his heart surely won’t be found on a humor blog. Funny how life likes to take the things that you’re most certain about and flip them—and you—on its ear. When Bryn meets Mike, he is instantly drawn to the warm, funny, sexy man who shares his hectic days with thousands of Pittsburgh natives. Now he just has to convince Mike he is who he says he is so he can get to know him better. Thankfully, Bryn isn’t a quitter. But does he have what it takes to leap into life with Mike, Kelly, and Liam?

Locey delivers a great read if you are looking for something low-key but with a TON of heat. Life According to Liam is pretty much two guys who meet, fall for each other, have sexy time together, and decide to live HEA. And while that means no angst, it doesn’t mean that it isn’t enjoyable to be taken along for the ride.
I do wish we’d gotten just a little more of the family interactions. I would have loved to see how suave, sophisticated Bryn learns to fit in with Mike’s more middle class life. Don’t get me wrong – he doesn’t ever come across as a snob but it’s definitely a little different than what he’s used to … throw in rambunctious Liam and I’m sure it was quite the adjustment 🙂
I think I felt it even more because these are characters I’d like to know better – Mike is the perfect amount of dorky and sweet, Bryn is just as likable in a more reserved way, and Liam (and Kelly) help bring the humor and fun. All together they add up to an easy read for those days when you just can’t handle any more drama.
