About Get a Grip

If a tree falls in Bluewater Bay . . . could it be fate?

A year after his divorce, Shane Andrews isn’t interested in dating—not that he has time, between three kids and a demanding job as a grip. When a windstorm knocks a tree onto one of the Wolf’s Landing soundstages, Shane’s there to help with the mess . . . and so is firefighter Aaron Tucker.

A former smoke jumper, Aaron’s an adrenaline junkie and way too restless and reckless to be relationship material. As far as he’s concerned, monogamy is for penguins, and he’d rather be alone than tied down. Signing up to be a stepparent? No, thank you.

But after a scorching-hot night together, they’re hooked. Aaron is a taste of the excitement Shane’s been lacking, and Shane’s pushing buttons Aaron didn’t know he had. The more they’re together, the less Aaron craves wild nights with other men . . . but the more Shane wants to play the field like he never got to in his twenties.

This could be the love neither man knew he needed, but only if Shane gets his feet back on the ground before Aaron walks away.

Now available from Riptide Publishing.

About Bluewater Bay

Welcome to Bluewater Bay! This quiet little logging town on Washington state’s Olympic Peninsula has been stagnating for decades, on the verge of ghost town status. Until a television crew moves in to film Wolf’s Landing, a soon-to-be cult hit based on the wildly successful shifter novels penned by local author Hunter Easton.

Wolf’s Landing’s success spawns everything from merchandise to movie talks, and Bluewater Bay explodes into a mecca for fans and tourists alike. The locals still aren’t quite sure what to make of all this—the town is rejuvenated, but at what cost? And the Hollywood-based production crew is out of their element in this small, mossy seaside locale. Needless to say, sparks fly.

This collaborative story world is brought to you by eleven award-winning, best-selling LGBTQ romance authors: L.A. Witt, L.B. Gregg, Z.A. MaxfieldHeidi Belleau, Rachel Haimowitz, Anne Tenino, Amy Lane, SE Jakes, G.B. Gordon, Jaime Samms and Ally Blue. Each contemporary novel stands alone, but all are built around the town and the people of Bluewater Bay and the Wolf’s Landing media empire.

About LA Witt

L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer who has finally been released from the purgatorial corn maze of Omaha, Nebraska, and now spends her time on the southwestern coast of Spain. In between wondering how she didn’t lose her mind in Omaha, she explores the country with her husband, several clairvoyant hamsters, and an ever-growing herd of rabid plot bunnies. She also has substantially more time on her hands these days, as she has recruited a small army of mercenaries to search South America for her nemesis, romance author Lauren Gallagher, but don’t tell Lauren. And definitely don’t tell Lori A. Witt or Ann Gallagher. Neither of those twits can keep their mouths shut…

L.A.’s backlist is available on her website, and updates (as well as random thoughts and the odd snarky comment) can be found on her blog or on Twitter (@GallagherWitt).

Here is a 5* review by Staci:

Who knew that after being in a reading funk for about 2 weeks all it would take to get over it would be a part time Firefighter/Mechanic and a Single dad/Grip. But I devoured this book! I couldn’t put it down and may have read while I was supposed to be working. Shhh don’t tell my boss 
Let’s start with Aaron, a former smoke jumper who is now a part time firefighter and owner of an auto repair shop. No room in his life for a relationship except with his dog Jack and 3 cats (even one who doesn’t like him lol) 

Then we have Shane, a single dad with 3 kids, twice divorced and grip on a television show. If you’re not sure what a grip is (like me) then I recommend you read the book. 
All Shane has ever known is relationships, he’s never been able to just have fun and play the field. He and Aaron come to the agreement that Aaron will help Shane live on the edge and have some fun. 
The chemistry between the two is off the hook. I love that Aaron and Shane crave each other and always sneaking off to have some fun 

There are 2 main things I took away from this book; 1. Loves come when you least expect and ex’s can be friends, especially when kids are involved.
Want to know what I’m talking about them read the book, you won’t be disappointed


  1. I'm more old school in my daily dealing too preferring notepad/paper and paper or pencil. I still like chalk boards too although the chalk dust can be so bothersome.

    Thanks for sharing this about you and your family.

  2. I do not have a whiteboard, that's why my shopping is always.... messy. I must consider getting one, though
    Congratulations on the release, Lori. It sounds really good

  3. The book sounds great. The moral fiber Christmas gift is great!

  4. Thanks for the funny post! But I'm thinking maybe this got mixed up with one of EJ Russell's because Lori stated elsewhere she didn't have children?

  5. Thanks for the review!


  6. Great post! I loved it.

  7. Congrats, L.A., and thanks for the good review. The book sounds like a nice addition to this wonderful collaborative series, what with the complementary couple, the locale, and dynamics. -
