Toby Morgan grew up the black sheep in his illustrious uppity family due to his sexual preferences. He didn’t see how being gay was a hindrance in any light.
Being an accountant by day, a kickass singer for The Nation’s Capital on the side, and a fashion and makeup extraordinaire by night, he tried to face every obstacle he encountered with perseverance and positivity.
Always being one to bask in the limelight and being the center of attention, but what everyone didn’t see was the scared and insecure little boy lurking inside and behind closed doors.
He had waited his entire life to find love and his happily ever after and just when he thought he had grasped his dreams head on, doubt puts a screeching halt in his happiness.
Now it seemed that there were two different men with their sights set on him and they were both vying for his affection.
In the end, will Toby find his one special someone who will love him unconditionally?

UNCONDITIONALLY by Amber Nation is the 4th Novella in the A Brown Country series. It is a M/M relationship novella and is suppose to be a stand alone, however, I think I would have enjoyed it so much more if I had read the whole series. I did not realize that it was a part of a series when I agreed to do the review. I hate picking up books in the middle of a series. I do not necessary think I can give the story a fair chance when I am trying to play catch up.
Ms. Nation does an excellent job explaining who everyone is but I just felt I could not really get attached to Toby because I came in right in the middle of his anguish. I really liked the writing style but my whole issue was that I just felt like I was reading Toby’s journal where he whined a lot. I am sorry but I just could not get over it. I loved his friends and saw a great story starting to emerge but I felt Toby had too much self reflection and it was not enough story.
Now I did LOVE Ethan. I loved the banter between Toby and Ethan. When Ethan was around, I felt the story had some substance. I wanted to love their story. I really did. I mean I was rooting for Ethan and wanted so much more of his story.
Please do not hate me for this review. I think that anyone reading the series and has Toby history will love it and I saw so much potential from Ms. Nation. UNCONDITIONALLY was just not a home run for me. I really, really wanted it to be. I would really love to have more of Toby and Ethan together.
UNCONDITIONALLY receives 3 out 5 Platypires!!
Texas Hugs and Happy Reading!!
