Forced to wait for his passport to be returned to him, because Hudson's unwilling to turn in his twin, Dalvon, who's the one who stole it in the first place, Hudson decides to turn lemons into lemonade by taking over the care of the home and businesses his brother left flagging in Miguel's absence as an "intern" in order to continue school without losing time in the pursuit of his MBA. When Miguel returns to the villa it's to find his lover gone, but his businesses and home prospering. When he lays eyes on Hudson the sparks fly and the two fall quickly for each other.
Told entirely from Hudson's POV, the reader is immersed in the middle of the action of the story from page one. There's no time for lollygagging - the pace is brisk. I love Mary Calmes' characters, her writing style Once again Mary Calmes delivers an entertaining story with humor and heat. Look, I'm not even playing. I drank the Kool-Aid a long time ago. I am able to suspend my disbelief very easily when it comes to Calmes' breakneck insta-love, no condoms required love stories that she is famous for Lay it Down is no exception.

I love Mary Calmes, her books are like crack to me, so it pains me to say, that this was not one of my favorites.

I liked it, but I didn't love it. For me it was too fast pased. Hudson is in spain, stuck in a villa owned by his brothers lover. His brother took his pasport and left Hudson there, to deal with Miguel when he comes back from bussines. Hudsons brother is a giant douchebag!! Hudson decides, that as long as he is stuck, he might as well make himself usefull, which he does.

He tu Well He turns Miguels bussineses around, making them quite succesfull, because everything Hudson touches turns to gold sound familiar?? Everybody loves Hudson and they all want him to stay. At times like these I miss Jory I love you Jory!!! Then the day comes, that Miguel returns. Too fast I could look past the insta thing, but what really bothered me, is that Miguel was fucking Hudsons brother not too long ago.
I don't think I could ever be with someone that has been with my sister. Then again, I do believe in love and you can't always choose who you fall in love with. That's why I think I would have enjoyed this storyline way more, if their love would have grown over time, instead of within 2 days they were declaring their love within 2 days.
To make matters weirder, Hudsons brother ran fled away, to hook up with Hudsons ex-boyfriend and is now fucking him This was all a bit much for me. I am by no means a prude, but I just didn't find all of this very romantic. Maybe over time it would have been, but it all happend so fast, that I just didn't feel the connection between the mc's.
Like I said, this is all personal preference, so don't let it stop you from reading this book. The mc's were pretty like-able to me. Hudson had a bit of a Jory aura Although Jory will always be my favorite ; 3 stars from me I can't believe everybody just forgave him for his douchebaggery!!! View all 22 comments. I won't change my original rating because I loved this the first time. I mean Jin? Hudson is at it again. This is Mary Calmes crack at its best. I loved every formulaic bit of it.
View 1 comment. I think that I liked half of this book. It is no secret that I freaking love Mary Calmes. I mean, deep down love her. And this book fit what I expect from her almost perfectly. It had all the things that I love about her books but… I think a of it felt missing. I knew going in that the story was going to just start with a bang. I knew that I was going to be thrown right in the mix. This is all me though. There was just something off to me about the whole brother thing.
I dunno. But the characters and the crazy and the food and clothes and the hot fucking? All that, was spot on Mary and I loved it. Feb 17, MostlyDelores rated it it was ok Shelves: m-m-romance. Naturally it made no sense at all, but that's fine, I knew what I was getting into.
It didn't seem like top-shelf Mary tho, the crazy was dialled back and all the digressions and folderol were missing. There should have been another pages of random shit that didn't remotely matter--that's why we're all here.

Plus "Hudson"? Not a good name. View all 17 comments. Feb 18, Karen rated it liked it Shelves: read-mm , booksread. While 'Lay It Down' followed a lot of the formula that I've come to expect from a Mary Calmes book for me there was just something missing. It came down to sometimes the story worked and sometimes it just didn't. So while it was an enjoyable read overall, it didn't leave me over the moon about the characters or events that happened.
I think it was mostly because I kept feeling like I wanted a little more detail. I think if things that happened had been fleshed out a little more I would have felt While 'Lay It Down' followed a lot of the formula that I've come to expect from a Mary Calmes book for me there was just something missing. I think if things that happened had been fleshed out a little more I would have felt more connected to the characters or even the story in general, but they weren't and I didn't so at the end of it that fact is neither here nor there. While this was only an ok read for me, I'm still good with that because if we didn't have the bad books, or the ones that are just ok.

I adored this book. It was sweet and fast-paced. Plus, Mary makes me smile with her words and that's never a bad thing. Feb 16, justanya rated it really liked it. Whenever I review a book by one of my "Titans" authors who's work I love so much I buy their books blindly , I tend to rate their books against their body of work.
Seriously, if I were to compare their books to the rest of MM market at large that I've read, each of their books would consistently earn 5 stars from me and that just isn't fair. But lets forget me and focus on what YOU want to know which is: Is it worth the read? Uhm, "Yes! I'll just tell you why I liked the book. Whenever I read a book I keep one thought in mind. How did the book make me feel? Did I enjoy myself while reading the book? Did I care about the characters?

In this instance, Yup. I did. The MC's Need a lesson on how to make a voice sound like sex on a stick? Ask Mary, how it's done! I want to meet Miguel , just to hear him speak. I want to experience Ibiza the setting simply because Miguel makes Ibiza sound so exciting. Trust me. Miguel embodies everything that on paper makes me swoon.
He's rich, handsome, loves his mama and most of all possessive without being controlling. Can I have one those please? Then there's Hudson. I love how strong he is. I love how determined he is to make his own way. If I had a sibling like Dalvon, I would be in jail. Hudson is a realistic relateable character.
A Lot of his struggles are things I identify with and reading how he overcomes those struggles is…….. It's not as angsty or heavy in comparison to other Calmes books. This one almost Harlequinny view spoiler [ The mess Dalvon, Hudson's twin leaves him to clean up, is seriously over the top hide spoiler ] but enjoyable. Love them both One of my all time favorite Calmes character is Sebastian, from her Timing series.

Ok, just a couple of things, it's not rude in Spain to walk around the house barefoot. A sad, sad day. Regardless of the level of the relationship it just seems ick. I still love Mary and nothing will ever change my love for her but I can see why some of her stories make people crazy.
This one was waaaaaayyyy out there. So, this is one of those times when a re-read of a story is a bad thing. Feb 02, Fatimama rated it did not like it.

This was exactly what I needed after an emotional read.
I needed to get lost in a book and feel all the gooey feelings, because goo is good. To keep or save something for the future.
