System Overload by Saxon James - Review and Release Blitz (Divorced Men's Club book 5)

Much anticipated, Keller and Will have their chance at an HEA in System Overload.

From the blurb:


Banging my son’s bestie was a total accident that will never, ever happen again. I’m sure of it.

While he might be gorgeous and caught me in a weak moment, when it comes right down to it, my son has been my entire life for the last twenty-six years. I don’t know how to be anything other than his dad.

But with Molly heading off to Seattle, he leaves me with a parting gift: Will.

His best friend.

And my new roommate.

Still, I’m determined to focus on my plan of finding someone to settle down with and to start living for me.

Then Molly hits me with another gift: he’s asked Will to help find me the perfect partner.


Molly running away across the country and leaving me made one thing very obvious. I crave stability. I crave a life where I get to control what happens to me, without the constant threat of having to move home to my homophobic family.

All I need to focus on is work and making enough money for the down payment on my own place.

Except now I’m living in the spare bedroom of the man I’ve been in love with for years.

The same bedroom where we had one very messy, very quick accidental frot sesh.

Now I’m cooking for him every night, and we’re working out together every morning. It’s all feeling very domestic and my heart can’t separate reality from the fantasies in my head.

I know I’m going to get hurt.

It’s only a matter of time.

But when it comes to Keller, it’s impossible for me to walk away.

Heather's Review:

Yay!  Keller and Will got it together and when they got together... whew!  I have to say that there was way more emphasis on Molly's feelings than I thought was necessary, but overall I truly enjoyed this best friend's father/son's best friend story and the angst and desire that Saxon James brought to the story.

This book was angsty, steamy and snarky and I was there for it!  You'll enjoy it more if you read the DMC books in order, and throw in Molly's story from the Accidental Love series, but if you're picking it up for the first time you'll only be a little confused by the number of characters that cross over... speaking of which, I can't wait for Mack's story to come...

Rating: 4 Stars

Jacqueleen the Reading Queen's Review:

"ɪ ʟᴏᴏᴋ ᴀᴛ ᴡɪʟʟ, ᴀɴᴅ ɪ ᴛᴀᴋᴇ ɪɴ ʜɪꜱ ᴄᴀʀɪɴɢ ᴇʏᴇꜱ ᴀɴᴅ ᴍᴇꜱꜱʏ ʜᴀɪʀ ᴀɴᴅ ꜱᴏꜰᴛ ꜱᴍɪʟᴇ, ᴀɴᴅ ɪ ᴊᴜꜱᴛ ᴋɴᴏᴡ ᴛʜᴀᴛ ᴡʜᴀᴛᴇᴠᴇʀ ᴡᴇ ʜᴀᴠᴇ ɪꜱ ɢᴏɪɴɢ ᴛᴏ ʀᴜɪɴ ᴍᴇ. ᴡʜᴇᴛʜᴇʀ ᴛʜᴀᴛ'ꜱ ꜰᴏʀ ʙᴇᴛᴛᴇʀ ᴏʀ ᴡᴏʀꜱᴇ, ɪ ɢᴜᴇꜱꜱ ɪ'ʟʟ ꜰɪɴᴅ ᴏᴜᴛ."

I was so happy when Saxon announced it was time for Will to get his HEA with his best friends Dad. We all know Will has had his eye on Keller for some time, but I didn't really know the extent of it. Turns out it's not just attraction Will's been feeling, but full on infatuation. The poor boy is head over heels and has no idea what to do about it. When a situation leads to him moving in with Keller, all that pining and want finally comes to a head.

I adored how sweet Will was. His outlook on life was so refreshing. He makes decisions based on one simple fact: Will this make me happy? Keller admired that about him too. He already felt a bond with Will before the move, but getting to know him on a deeper level brought out more emotions into the mix. It was just so easy between them. They developed a routine like they'd been together all their lives. The only thing holding them back was Molly. How was Keller's son going to feel about his best friend dating his dad?

As usual the DMC chats were a highlight. I also liked getting to know more about Mack, which is good since his book is next. All in all I loved Will and Keller together and the ending most definitely proves these two are in it for good.
