    1. What I love about L.A. Witt is that she isn't afraid to try new things. Where most other authors don't want to go there and write a M/M romance with religion in it, L.A. Witt dives right in. In fact, I think she is one of the most fearless authors out there, trying her hand in all sorts of genres, all sorts of pairing, all sorts of genders, all sorts of races, and just going for it! I've read about two dozen (!!) L.A. Witt books, if you count all of her other pen names, and it is always a mixed [...]


    2. L.A. Witt is a hit-or-miss author for me. This latest story from Tucker Springs world, though, was a 'hit' While the blurb made me a bit weary at first -- I tried to stay away from anything religious-based because they could be downright preachy OR stereotypical, like all people with certain faith and beliefs would always be hateful towards homosexuality (kinda tired of that set-up) -- this one did it 'right'. I enjoyed the discussion between Seth and Darren. It was never down to the border of a [...]


    3. I really like the Tucker Srings Series so I was looking forward to this one very much even though I'm not a great fan of religious undertones in books. So as soon as I got notification that it was downloadable I had it on my Kindle like a shot! Any disappointment? Not a one I've thoroughly enjoyed Seth and Darren's story and I'm sad its finished. The thing that made it 5 stars for myself was the chemistry between the two guys and the sizzling sexual tension ( and hot love scenes! ) that's genera [...]


    4. The church and sexuality; a potentially explosive combination and boy did this book start with a bang. Wham bam thank you ma'am to be exact!Seth - is a tattoo artist who was thrown out of and cut off from his family as a young man after telling them he is gay. This this was too much for his family being ultra-conservative Christians and couldn't reconcile their beliefs with Seth's revelation about his sexuality. He was left to fend for himself from a very early age and subsequently loses all fai [...]


    5. After a real dodgy start, this series is 2-2 with me for books #3 and #4, another winner for the Tucker Springs series. Loved this book. I thought it was a clever and an extremely well presented case for gay men who are Christians and choose to remain "in the fold" so to speak despite the horrible views that many people of faith have towards LGBT people. It's very rarely that we get to see that side of the coin with a character that is coherent and likeable.L.A. Witt tends to be hit or miss with [...]


    6. Full review to come after the wedding (my sister's that is)Pre-ReviewI want to read this because I really like Seth, and was really looking forward to him getting his own book, but I have major reservations about this one. I'm really not looking forward to the romance with the Youth Pastor. Call me judgmental, but that is not appealing to me in the slightest. In fact a small petulant part of me is stomping her feet, and whining about it. I hope I am proven wrong, but it still leaves a bad taste [...]


    7. Sweet story about a tattoo artist and a minister and lots of aggressive fucking.I really wanted to scream at Seth most of the book because he was the one being the hypocrite about religiont Darren!! I'm not really convinced that these two guys will make it in a relationship, but I still enjoyed their story.


    8. 2.5 starsI found this one to be extremely undeveloped and simplistic. Seth is an atheist and a tattoo artist. Darren is a Christian and a minister. They become neighbors and immediately have sex. Then Seth freaks that he can't possibly be with a Christian, because his Christian family disowned him for his homosexuality. The bottom line is Christianity and atheism are NOT compatible belief systems. This goes beyond just believing in god on some kind of philosophical level; it's about world-views, [...]


    9. 4.5 stars!When I started reading m/m, the Tucker Springs series has been one of the first I started and while I liked the three previous parts quite well, I didn't fall in love with the characters, they seemed all a little too underdeveloped, but I am very happy that I gave Covet Thy Neighbor a try. It has been a very entertaining read despite the often difficult topic of religion in an m/m romance. Tattoo-artist Seth and youth paster Darren are made for each other despite the difficulties they [...]


    10. If this hadn't been part of the Tucker Springs series, I don't think I would have read Covet Thy Neighbor. Although religious beliefs have a huge impact on people and how they live their lives, I usually find religion a topic I choose to avoid in my reading. Particularly if it forms a significant part of the story which I expected in this case due to one of the lead characters being a minister.However I was pleasantly surprised! The religious discussions and opinions were handled beautifully. Da [...]


    11. I was hesitant to read this installment given the religious theme. But when my lovely GR friends asked me to buddy read the book I gave in and haven't regretted it. Anyone who has read the previews books of the Tucker Springs series will immediately recognize Seth, the openly gay, laid back tattoo artist. Seth comes from an ultra religious family. When he came out he was thrown out and permanently disowned. The loss of family is a wound that never fully heals, and being attracted to Darren, his [...]


    12. I loved this book. So far I've only read books 3 & 4 but this was definitely the one I preferred. Loved Seth, I adored him and even when he was being harsh, I loved him. It was interesting to read his views as an Atheist. I have always had a spot for books where Religion is questioned and not just preached about. This one did that well.Darren and Seth together was an interesting combination. I always find the differences between characters in books can be one of the best parts of a story. It [...]


    13. Seth Wheeler has been an atheist and has kept clear of anything or anyone religious since his family disowned him and his church excommunicated him. He has settled his life in Tucker Springs where he owns his own business, counts his friends as his family and hooks up hen the mood strikes him. His world is turn upside down as soon as he meets and befriends Darren Romero. Especially since his attraction to the minister is instant and his conviction that all Christians are against his sexuality an [...]


    14. Oh Boy, can one Atheist hit over the head at another Atheist?because that's want I want to do with to Seth.I always said not to get involved with Politics and religion, so I just going to say, I'm so glad Seth put his head out of his ass.Darren remind me of my husband just perfection,religion should never be an issue when you find your perfect half, and mine is Catholic, perfect balance ;)


    15. This is such a refreshing book. Just like all the others in the Tucker Springs series this was engaging and totally drew me in from the first word. Having had glimpses of Seth from the first book in the series it is great to have his story. There are very few m/m books that deal with the Christian faith and it is quite novel to see a main character who is a minister and gay. Generally in m/m books ministers/priests/pastors are normally homophobic baddies and so this is refreshing and also realis [...]


    16. 3.5 stars rounding up to 4First off let me say that I DID really enjoy this book - it was very thought provoking in a sneaky kinda way. It was also very sexy too. I liked the characters and I have to say "Tucker Springs" is really growing on me. The only thing that kept me from loving this one is (view spoiler)[the way it ended without a real HEA. Now I know in real life HEA's are not as common as the eternal optimist in me would like to believe, but I really need one when I read romance. This s [...]


    17. Buddy read with Tina, Gina and Markank you my lovelies, and here's to many more!! Good story, but religion and insta-lust (and you a pastor too Darren tut, tut!!) are two of my pet peeves, and that knocked a star off. 4 stars I have to say the religious overtones were handled very sensitively by the author, but I just hate it when religion gets involved in gay stories, and as one of the MC's is a pastor, it was quite difficult for me to get more invested in the characters sorry, but nicely writt [...]


    18. I have to gather my thoughtsThis is book 4 in the Tucker Springs series, which I'm reading in order, and though you don't have to, I feel that it's a good idea as previous characters are visited, even if briefly, and others are set up for future books. Having said that mouthful it kind of pains me to say that this one didn't work for me. ***This might get spoilerish***The whole premise of this book is an "opposites attract", dynamic to which end we have Seth, Micheal & Jason's tattooist frie [...]


    19. Review posted at The Armchair Reader.3.5 starsI was quasi-curious about this one because the books in the series before this have been luke-warm, in my opinion. They weren't bad, not at all, but none of them really affected me either. And I'm naturally curious, yet likewise nervous about reading a book where a character is a priest, or if religion is a heavy topic. I know that a lot of you are as well. But even though it came into play pretty heavily in this book, it wasn't dogmatic in any way. [...]


    20. This story gives us one MC who is a Christian minister, trying to live his life and keep his faith according to the New Testament and not the Old. Darren doesn't see being gay as incompatible with his belief in God or in the words of Jesus. He tries to be positive, do good work, and enjoy the world as it has been created in all its diversity.Seth, however, was rejected and exiled by a family and faith community who held by the harsher Old-Testament views of homosexuality. He's bitter and burned, [...]


    21. I have a healthy dose of anti-religion baggage in my own closet (an Atheist teaching at a Catholic school.heh) but thought that the characters were just sweet and charming enough to keep this surprisingly light story from being too preachy. The OMG-I've-just-fucked-a-minister dilema was just the right amount of awkward and realistic and the OMG-I've-just-smoked-weed-with-a-minister moment which follows soon after was pretty funny. Both characters positively sizzle right at the get go and the che [...]


    22. Being an atheist myself and coming from a devout Christian background I had every sympathy with Seth in this story. Luckily for me my parents way of thinking is more like that of the other main character in this book, Darren the minister. At least I have a Mother & Father that fight the religious/gay battles with their own vicar on my behalf. Love 'em.Great story and great writing. Seth is a wonderful character, so very well drawn.Hot sex, angst and a lovely story. I wish these characters th [...]



    23. I LOVE. L.A.WITT. And when I say that, I mean it with my whole heart so when I read the blurb for this book, I thought oh no, where is she going with this book? A gay minister and a tattoo artist couldn’t be a more unlikely pair, but you see, Witt has a way of surpassing your expectations and giving readers something to talk and rave about. I ended up loving COVET THY NEIGHBOR!In the fourth book of the multi-author Tucker Springs series, Witt introduces Seth Wheeler, a fun and loveable tattoo [...]


    24. Full review here:prismbookalliance/?p=2858I was excited for this one, and skeptical at the same time. I don't generally like religious themes in my books, but (as any of my readers know) I am a fan of LA Witt and I am a fan of this series in general, so I wanted to give it a try. As you could probably guess, this book deals a lot with how many religious individuals (and groups) view homosexuality, but does so in a interesting way. I loved Darren because he is everything that a cliched minister i [...]


    25. 3.5 StarsI love the Tucker Springs series but, honestly, I was hesitant to read this installment given the religious slant. (Eww. Generally. Not. A. Fan.) However, I was pleasantly surprised to learn that I really liked a lot about this book. First, I abso ADORE Seth. Love, love, love him. Second, and to my surprise, I liked Darren too. I felt that the Christian/LGBT controversy was well done. There were a number sexy, smexy love scenes and a good dose of angst so I was in pig heaven. My only gr [...]


    26. Though I thoroughly enjoyed this the first time I read it, the religious overtones really stood out too much for me in the audio. Charlie David did a wonderful job with the narration (as usual), but for some reason the story didn't work as well on the re-read (first time listen). Don't let my opinion stop you from giving this a try. If don't mind religion being a backdrop in your romance, this could work for you.


    27. 3.5 Stars!I am really enjoying the Tucker Springs Series which are by different authors and I am a fan of LA Witt'sEverything in this book I really like. The love story is sexy and the conflict is interestingly explored and I care for each of the heroes. What I want more of is exploration of the clergy hero's work life and less of annoying stuff from Seth and lusher resolve.Good stuff all around!


    28. The fourth book of the Tucker Springs series and I really seem to be a sucker for these. I just like them. All of them. They're not absolutely exceptional or going to stay in my mind for a long while or anything like that. But I really really like them, nevertheless.I think, what I love the most about this series is, that you get to know the characters in multiple ways: you love them in the novels that are written for them and then you see them again through the eyes of other characters in other [...]


    29. From an atheist point of view, I’m always surprised to see how much more atheist people seem to follow the original concept of the Christian teachings than many of the current churches. I still remember the priest who was teaching in my midterm school, how he was glad someone was listening to his lessons (religion was still a mandatory matter in school till 10/15 years ago); the ordinary kids were so bored because they had to hear the same story also afterschool, while for me everything was ne [...]
