Description

It’s a time for searching, and a time for finding, Pisces: keep casting your line and you will hook what you’re looking for.
Zane has it all planned out: land the perfect Meet Cute, fall in love, and live happily ever after.
Should be simple enough if he put his mind to it. A little creativity and some thinking outside of the box, and voila, he’d be married to the woman of his dreams.
It would be perfect.
And it would be before his visa ran out.
But why are his feelings running wild now that the pressure’s on? Why is his picture-perfect plan turning into a muddled mess of morphed metaphors he can’t make sense of anymore?
Just as well he’s met an English professor to help. And even though their first meet is anything but cute, this down-to-earth teacher may just be the realist Zane needs to ground him and give him a shot at love after all.
Don’t cast your line too wide, Pisces. Your perfect catch may already have bitten.

What a delightful love story! Filled with innuendo and lots of moments that make you stop and say, Did he really just say that?! This author's books always keep a smile on my face, even as I shed a few tears. Though Zane and and Beckett may disagree whether it classifies as love at first sight or a slow burn, the end result is the same- a super swoony, happy ever after. This just might be my fave. I don't know, I've kind of felt like that with each book in the series, but Pisces Hooks Taurus was SO GOOD. Cute and funny, with that delicious tension that comes with a slow building desire they are holding in. I loved every minute of it.

This book is so unbelievably pure that it can work miracles.

Romance doesn't work like that. You don't fall in love and just keep falling. You fall, and when the ground catches up, you pull yourselves together, climb back to the top of the cliff, and fall again.

I might be a small worshipper of Sunday because she writes my most favourite kind of romances. Two real characters with flaws who develop a real connection and snark at each other throughout the book. I mean, swoon right?

But Anyta has stepped up her game here. Because Zane is something she hasn't written before.
Zane is open, optimistic, and so freaking pure that my breath caught a little bit. He believes in love and will settle for nothing less - but I don't think he really thought he deserved it, which is why it snuck up on him so spectacularly.

Beckett cast his gaze upward and muttered toward the stars, "Slow burn."

Beckett is elegant, intelligent, and has been hurt rather badly. I loved how adorably vulnerable he was yet didn't shy away from this chance.

I adored these boys and the tremendously sweet relationship they developed while helping each other grow.
This series is made of magic and no matter what's going on in my life it always manages to fill my heart right up.

Awww, this latest chapter in Anyta Sunday's "Signs of Love" series was everything that I love about M/M romance.

Twenty-three y.o. New Zealand native Zane was determined to find true love, and find it quickly, in order to remain in the United States. Mainly so that he could be there for his favorite brother and his newborn niece, the same way that his brother had been there for him. Well, that and... LOVE, because he's a hopeless romantic.

Then he met 30 y.o. literature professor and divorcee Beckett, who after being cheated on and having his heart pulverized to a fine pulp, no longer believed in love, thinking it a "big, beautiful lie".

I loved the dynamic between extremely-naive Zane and overly-cynical Beckett. Their playful push and pull dynamic completely worked for me.

“Why are you chasing after a green card?”

“I’m not.”

“Let me rephrase. Why the deadline to marry?”

“A deadline to fall in love and marry. If I’m not 100 percent head over heels, I will go back and stay back. But I’m just . . . determined to be head over heels.”

But Zane's time was running out, with only a very short time remaining to find the perfect Miss Right and seal the deal.

If I'm being completely honest, I wasn't initially sure how well I was going to mesh with Zane. He came across as insanely unrealistic as to how those first online dates might turn into something real. Also, he seemed pretty... simple.

Yet leave it to Anyta to transform Zane into someone I quickly found myself rooting for, becoming his biggest fan.

As Beckett's attraction to his new house guest's young Chris Hemsworth looks and eternal optimism grew, while Zane cluelessly dated a string of overly-amorous female suitors, with disastrous (and often scary) results, well, I got sucked in pretty quickly.

I also loved Darla, Beckett's wise and seemingly all-knowing next-door-neighbor, who also happened to be Theo's beloved grandmother.

Anyta brought the slow-burn BIG TIME in this latest story, leaving Zane pretty damn clueless until probably 70 percent into the story, while the rest of us saw where things were going pretty early on.

And I absolutely LOVED the ride.

It did take a while to finally get to the steamy bits, which were very steamy indeed, but events unfolded at what I felt were the right time, with an adorable and hopeful "soon-to-be HEA" on the horizon as the book ended.

Theo and Jamie's book, the first in the series, is still my absolute favorite, but folks, this one came in a damn close second, which is nothing to sneeze at in this feel-good, fun and flirty series.

This story had tons of banter, but not really much of the snark found in Theo and Jamie's story, which was probably why this book came in just *behind* book 1 for me.

I'd rate this one at around 4.5 stars and highly recommend it to any fans of the series.

** Note: This story is loosely tied to the previous series, so it 'could' be read as a standalone, but for full enjoyment, I'd recommend at least reading book 1 before this story, as Theo and Jamie did make a cameo appearance here.

This was an adorable and fun read. At the beginning I was a bit hesitant because while I like banter, it felt a little over the top. But I'm glad I stuck with it - Zane soon won me over, and it didn't take me much longer to love Beckett as well.

This is a perfect romantic comedy with lots of warmth and humor, and - take note- pretty much the right amount of sex. Not too little, and most importantly not too much. So, if you're in the mood for something sweet and light, but not vapid, this is a wonderful choice.

I can't even describe all of the ways that I loved this book. This is my first Anyta Sunday, so obviously I haven't read any of the others in the series and I was completely fine with it as a stand alone.

First of all, I loved the Pride and Prejudice aspect. I loved that I, the reader, had personal insight into the story from clues and banter that one of the MC's had missed out on. Don't even get me started on the torturously slow burn.

As the story begins, Zane has a month left on his Visa before he's shipped back from the US to New Zealand. He's desperate to stay to be close to his brother who has just become a father. He's not looking for someone to MOC him, he wants to marry for love. He's looking for the girl of his dreams on dating apps and hoping to have the perfect meet-cute that he can relate to his grandchildren one day.

When he gets kicked out of the room he's borrowed with one month left, he asks a friend of his brother's wife, Beckett, if he can crash with him temporarily.

As the story unfolds, we learn about how deeply scarred Becky is from a past relationship and how unaware Zane is at what he's really after.

I felt such a connection to Becky and just really loved his character. He was witty and charming and studious. He loved deeply and cared fully. And Zane was just so oblivious in the nicest way possible. It was a thrill to finally get to the point where he became self aware. And what a ride.

I loved this so much and I can't wait to read more by Ms. Sunday!

This funny, sweet and entertaining book was just what I needed! I wasn't sure about Zane at first as he's quite naive but he's just so adorable and sweet that you can't help but like him. I really loved the conversations between Beckett and Zane and found them really funny. Beckett was one of my favorite characters and his patience while Zane figured things out was wonderful.

There isn't a lot of action in this book and sometimes I can get a bit bored but that never happened in this book. It's definitely a slow burn and while I sometimes lose patience with these I didn't in this book because the humor and bromance get me highly entertained while I waited (not as patiently as Beckett) for Zane to figure it all out.

I laughed, I smiled and I read this book in one sitting. It can easily be read as a stand alone and I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a fun, sweet M/M romance with a slow burn.

Zane is a hopeless romantic who plans to meet and fall in love with the woman of his dreams in the weeks before his visa runs out. He powers on though the setbacks finding a spare bed with his sister in-law’s friend Becky who helps him with his creativity. I really loved this book and am definitely reading some more of Anyta’s books. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

The burn hurts so good.
As always Anyta Sunday did not disappoint. This book CAN be read as a standalone, but be aware that some characters from the previous books will make multiple cameos. Just like the other 3 books in the series, this book followed a strong theme. The theme of this book is recognizing insecurities and improving oneself.
The story starts off with one of the main characters called Zane, a fish with a great wish. An eccentric Pisces that isn't afraid to give their love to those who need it. In this scenario, there's a time limit. Zane is on a mission to fall head over heels and marry someone before the end of the month, before his visa runs out. Zane's struggle with the fact that he dropped out of high school and Becky's struggle with trusting other people intertwine in this edition of horoscope love. The author incorporated a perfect mix of comic relief and somber tones. The broken bull was a character that many can sympathize with as well.
The different views and personalities of both men provided an equilibrium for them to recognize their feelings for each other. Becky has a way with words and Zane has a way to convey that through his drawings. They are truly a match made in heaven.
The wit in this book shall not go unnoticed. The sexual innuendos and dirty jokes definitely made me chuckle out loud and that rarely happens for me. Zane comes to many self-realizations throughout the story. One of them being his attraction to intelligence. More specifically, Becky's intelligence. Sesquipedalian words are hot.
With the aid of Becky's presence, Zane's sexuality had slowly evolved into something different, something new, for Zane.

Fun and funny and sweet All the mushy feelz for this slow burn OFY romance that had me alternating between laughing out loud and making "awww" sounds.

Is New Zealander Zane looking for a MOC (marriage of convenience)? No! He's looking for his HEA. It's just that he only has 30 days to find true love before his visa expires.

Professor Beckett Fisher doesn't believe in love anymore. Not since his HEA died a fiery death only two months after the wedding.

Can Zane convince him that love at first sight is real? Well, it might be easier if Zane wasn't straight and Beckett gay. Nevermind that, on the surface, they seem to belong to different worlds. But, what the heart wants, the heart wants. Obstacles are only there as challenges. Let the Bromance begin!

Another great book in this series

Zane’s visa was about to expire and he would be going back to New Zealand. He wanted to fall in love and marry in order to stay in the US. This was a slow burn because Zane had never had feelings for a guy. All that changed once he met Beckett. What started as a Zane-declared Bromance turned into true love.

So much goodness in this book! “Kingly” scale. “Monogamy” bed. Toy Story. But what made it so wonderful for me is how my FAVORITE book, Pride and Prejudice , was woven throughout the story.

Zane and Beckett are super cute and likable characters. There was a great slow burn to their romance that I really enjoyed and when things heated up--they really heated up! I've enjoyed every one of Anyta Sunday's books that I've read so far and this was no exception

A wonderful read!! I read the whole thing within 24h, couldn't put it down!
I loved the writing style, I loved the characters and the pace and just--!! Some scenes were so so adorable and fun, I'm sad it ended so quickly.
I must say, I'm a Pisces and very much into astrology, and I've always thought I was quite attracted to Taurus-type energy, so the title caught me and I had to give this book a try.
It did not disappoint.
I was quite surprised that the book was so accurate for me personally, because although some things may be exaggerated (I mean, some things were a bit silly, but fun), I spent half the book thinking: "Why is this ME???" I loved relating so much to Zane, and Becky was just so lovable and wonderful Gaaaah!
Sometimes if I finish a book very quickly and love it so much, I'll reread it again right after to stay more time with it (and prevent myself from the biggest slump and post-book depression!!) But since I had other books to read right after, I decided against it. I'm going to read it probably in a month or so while I'm studying for my finals and dying inside, this book will keep me alive! Since I read it so quickly, I'll remember few things, so it will be almost like reading it for the first time, which I'm so excited about.

TL;DR: I loved everything about this book. I subscribed to Anyta's Newsletter. I will be soon reading more of her books. I definitely recommend Pisces Hooks Taurus!

An engaging and sweet slow burn romance that would make us believe in the importance of literature and love.

Zane is a hopeless romantic, who believes in love at first sight and is determined to find love and marry the woman of his dreams before the month ends. Due to unexpected circumstances, he get to meet an English teacher whose down-to-earth attitude might be what Zane needs to start seeing things a little differently and begin to put his feet on earth. But the stars might have something different prepared for this unlikely couple.

It took me a little while to get into the story. There was something that wasn't really working at the beginning but the more I keep reading, the more I began to love these characters. It was Zane who made the things a little hard for me. I didn't quite get his sense of humor but I got used to it. Beckett was fantastic. I liked him from the start, he was caring and so easy to love. He was dealing with a broken heart and it was lovely to see him overcome it.

Their relationship was really nice. I loved how patient they were with each other. It is a low burn romance, my favorite kind, and it was exactly what I could hope for. It had a steady pace and a plot that would keep the reader interested. There are also some nice secondary characters who showed so much love for them, that it was easy to understand where all that love they have to give to each other came from. There are some bittersweet moments too, but nothing with too much angst that it would bother readers. There are some really funny moments too that lightened up the story. I particularly loved the words games and the importance given to words all along the story.

Overall it was lovely read. I would recommend it to M/M readers looking for something romantic to read.

Pisces Hooks Taurus is a fun romance by Anyta Sunday.

From the start, this book had me completely invested in these men. And along the way, I was gifted with so many cute, sweet and funny moments.

Zane's a hopeless romantic, who's looking for the love of his life. He's been traveling abroad and hopes to find his true love before he has to return to New Zealand.

When Zane ends up staying with Beckett, Zane insist that they will have a great bromance. And what follows, is a fantastic bromance that turns into a romance without Zane even noticing.

Zane's never been interested in men, so he doesn't even realize how perfect Beckett is for him. And Beckett, meanwhile, is still reeling from his past experiences.

It is positively charming and riveting as we follow these two men on their journey towards self-awareness. Zane struggles to find his inner strength, as he constantly puts himself down. And Beckett needs to learn to open his heart again.

The two men get along so damn well, with so much wit and banter flying between them constantly. They are opposites in so many ways, yet they completely compliment one another.


I also have to add that all the Kiwi comments and little Kiwi talk is a lot of fun.

I absolutely loved every second of Pisces Hooks Taurus. I am elated to have found this gem by Anyta Sunday and highly recommend it when you're in the mood for something with some humor and a whole lot of love.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
There are so many reasons why I love this series. The biggest one is that each book brings a special something that personalizes it for you. In this one for me it was the quotes. Being a lifelong reader and a lover of the classics, I’ve read quite a few of the authors mentioned. Reminding me of why I fell in love with reading, it was a pure joy to get lost in the story. I love Zane. He is such a beautiful brave soul. Then you add the sexy smart Beckett. They were made for each other. It was nice seeing how Theo and Jamie are doing. You can bet that between the books and the extra epilogues, I will be re-reading this series many times. It will be the perfect read for my birthday week, which is when I actually pay attention to my horoscope.

"Pisces Hooks Taurus" is the fourth volume of the "Signs of Love" series and like the other books I really enjoyed reading it. The love story of Zane and Beckett ('Becky') is emotional but also humorous and although the protagonists are quite different, it quickly becomes obvious that they would make a great couple - even if it takes Zane (who is the focal character of the story) a while to realize that. It was entertaining how clueless he was to the fact that their 'bromance' was very, very intimate, in many ways definitely not platonic and more like a romantic relationship than an ordinary friendship, but I have to say that this ignorance lasted almost too long in my opinion. The scenes between him and Beckett were beautifully written and their friendship, the debates and the small unconscious gestures were nicely done, but a few of the situations the two found themselves in were so charged and filled with emotion that I could not fully understand how he could be so blind.

That aside, I liked Zane very much and his romantic, kind nature endeared him to me very fast, but I also liked the other facets of his character - his attachment to his family and the fact that he is trying to be there for them, his unwavering belief in the fact that he will find his true love, his will to prove to himself and others that he can achieve something, even though he has dropped out of school and may not be as smart as most people. It was easy to empathize with him, and despite being a bit oblivious when it came to his own feelings, he was a great friend and partner to Beckett who is, as mentioned before, in many ways the exact opposite of Zane: he is already divorced and therefore has a rather cynical attitude when it comes to romances, is a professor and loves to talk about classical literature. There were some moments when I thought that I would really have liked to be able to read his view on certain events; it would have been interesting to know what went through his mind, but even so it was clear enough what he was feeling.

Despite - or maybe because of - the fact that the two characters are so different, they had a strong connection right from the start and the development of their relationship was realistic. How they grew closer was written in a convincing way and I liked how the situation that Zane has to marry before a specific point in time if he wants to stay in the country was ultimately resolved. The mixture of meaningful, emotional and moving moments with fun, humorous ones worked well and the conflicts and obstacles to the romance were believable and addressed adequately without making the story feel too loaded. I especially liked how well the quotes at the beginning of each chapter matched the content - and the last quote, of course, is especially meaningful and a perfect ending to the book, even if I would have liked to get more details.

Hooked from the first chapter, I read this in one sitting (and didn't go to bed). Zane and Beckett's bromance adventure was sweet, charming, and funny. The banter between them had me in stitches on one page, d'awwwing on the next. I have loved all the books in Sunday's Series of Love series and this may be my favorite yet.

*4.5 stars*

Slow burn story with one of the most clueless characters ever!

I had a blast while reading this fourth installment of the "Signs of Love" series. Zane has such a quirky and unique character, he's likeable right from the start and makes you want to protect him and shield him from himself. He wants to stay in the States to be close to his brother, but his visa is running out soon so he has a plan to get a green card by getting married. The unusual part is that he doesn't want to marry just anyone. He has one month to find the perfect woman, fall in love and stay with her forever.

Beckett is a lot more down to earth. He is quiet, dependable and organised. He agrees to let Zane stay with him but he can't resist the temptation of telling him every chance he gets how his plan is not going to work. He has been hurt in the past and is still struggling to get over it.

The story was light, funny and uplifting. Zane and Backett are so different from each other but somehow they click immediately and soon become good friends. Beckett understands the attraction he feels for what it is but Zane is clueless for a good part of the story rationalising his behavior as a bromance. The Professor, as Zane is affectionally calling Beckett, gives his guest time and space to figure things out for himself and is patiently waiting to see what, if anything, is going to happen between them, while at the same time he's getting over the past.

Jamie and Theo are making a guest and show us how good they still are together and how happy they are with the way their life has turned out. One thing that surprised me is that there is a scene where some characters and places from the "Love Letters" series make an appearance. I'm not sure so I'll have to flip through those books to see if the scene we read here was also mentioned there from a different perspective. I love it when that happens!

As for the signs theme, it keeps being in the backround barely ever being mentioned and, I don't know about everyone else but for me, that's a big reason why I keep coming back to these stories. Of course, the slow burn and the amazing writing are the real reasons for that.
So, which pairing is next?

This series! So many heart eyes. I just love it. I think the first book will always be my favorite but this one was a close second.

Zane is in the US on a visa and his time is almost up. He's looking for someone to marry so he can stay. The catch? He wants to be in love with that person. He dates a lot of girls but nothing ever sticks. He ends up needing somewhere to stay and ends up staying with Beckett, a friend of his sister in laws.

The two men are total opposites. Zane is a bit dingy and never finished high school. He's an artist and a good one, but his insecurities make him sell himself short. He's a hopeless romantic though and he's sure the perfect person is out there for him. Beck on the other hand is a college professor and enjoys word games and intellectual activities. He's also cynical and jaded and thinks love is a sham and something that only makes you end up hurt.

They end up unlikely friends and as Zane says, are in a "bromance". In addition to love at first sight, Zane believes in "brove at first sight". The plot is very much like the first one. Zane is clueless to the fact that he's falling in love with Beck and Beck has to use a lot of patience waiting for him to figure it out. Somehow this author is able to take the same overall theme and keep the elements I love (slow burn, UST) and yet make them different enough to feel fresh and new and not something I've read before.

Zane's cluelessness was a bit unbelievable in a few places but the books in this series just make me so darn happy that I don't care. These books make me have a smile on my face from beginning to end. I really enjoy every minute of them. I hope the author writes a bunch more of them cuz I'm sure I will be there for every one of them.

This can be read as a standalone. You don't need to read these in order. If you've read book one though you will have a great update and appearance from Theo and Jaime in this.

Zane is a pure soul. Though his head is full of ideals and his goals seem out of reach, his heart is genuine. Beckett, on the other hand, is damaged by the past. As deeply as he wants to still believe in love, his head guards him from further heartbreak. One a hopeful dreamer, the other a jaded realist-- These two were made for each other. Can they overcome their differences and let their unusual bromance find its way to love?

This is romance writing at its best! Anyta Sunday is a truly creative writer with great skill and imagination-- a genuine wordsmith that incorporates humor, sexual innuendo, beautiful character detail and rolls them deliciously together in a slow burning romance that had my heart aching, long before the characters realized where they stood.

I really loved the story, loved the journey and was rooting for Zane and Beckett from the first meeting. Though there is sexual tension and a touch of eroticism-- this is a classic romance that is so enchanting and sweet-- thick with deeply layered passion and truth-- I couldn't put it down and never wanted it to end.

Do you still believe in love? Pure, unconditional romance? You will after reading this book.

‘Pisces Hooks Taurus’ has everything I love about this series - an adorably clueless MC, a sweet friendship, an even sweeter romance, and UST thick enough that you could cut it with a knife.

In this addition, the clueless of the pair is Zane, a struggling comic book artist from New Zealand who’s determined to fall madly in love and marry before his visa runs out.

However, much to his disappointment, he can never seem to get that fall-in-love-at-first-sight thing right.

But that doesn’t mean Zane can’t brove at first sight. Get it? Bromance and love - brove.

And that’s exactly what happens when Zane ends up crashing at Beckett’s place. Unlike Zane, Beckett’s given up on love. But Zane’s determined to prove to his new best friend that love is in fact a magical wonderful thing.

Like the previous books in this series, what I loved most about Beckett and Zane’s relationship was how they truly did become each other’s best friend. In only a few days, Zane was able to wiggle his way into Beckett’s carefully ordered life.

And Beckett recognizes quickly what a brilliant mind and way of thinking Zane has, even if he isn’t “academic” the way most of his friends are.

Zane brings colour to Beckett’s life, while Beckett gives Zane that extra push he needs to go after the things he wants.

They’re two very different men, yet they fit into each other’s lives seamlessly.

Between shared coffees and reading to each other, the two MCs become more than just friends. Of course, Beckett’s aware that what he and Zane have is definitely more than just friendship. It takes Zane considerably longer to catch on, but once he does he’s all in.

The transition from bromance to romance is a bit bumpy, but the payoff was so worth it. I’d call the ending a HEA, but with enough wiggle room to make me impatient for one of those short follow-ups Anyta Sunday writes!

This was absolutely a wonderful M/M romantic comedy - sometimes even painfully so! Zane comes off a touch immature, but it also is very much a young and wanting-to-be-in-love feel, too. Very light reading and is a much needed niche in the M/M community.

Was this review helpful?

Zane believes in love at first sight and he's hunting for it so he can get married before his visa runs out and he has to return to New Zealand. Beckett prefers slowly getting to know someone; feeling hesitant after divorcing from his cheating spouse. When Zane needs a place to stay and Beckett offers up his spare room, they both feel a connection neither can resist but will love blossom before Zane must leave the country?

As a book nerd myself, I adored the banter between English professor Beckett and Zane, who isn't familiar with literature and gets his words confused. I empathize with Beckett's understanding and patience that not everyone knows what he's talking about; which keeps Beckett from becoming unlikable and pretentious. This pairs well with Zane's eagerness to learn so seeing them come together is believable and heartwarming. I really enjoy this series and look forward to the next one! 4 out of 5.

I think I say this every time I read an Anyta Sunday book but, this one is the best so far! This series just keeps getting better and better. The banter, the wit, that way Anyta writes the gorgeous slow burn and the final realisation of feelings *sigh* just marvellous.

Title provided via Netgalley for an honest review.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS! I'm not a fan of horoscopes exactly, so when I first started reading the series it was maybe once book 2 or 3 came out. I don't know why I waited because each book I've increasingly loved more. This one I particularly liked because I am a Taurus and I really relate to Beckett (BECKY lol).

What I love about Anyta Sunday's titles are that she makes her characters flawed in a way that you can't really see in many other characters from other stories. They are flawed in such a human way that when the characters become a couple it flows so naturally and doesn't seem forced. Zane is an airhead, freespirit, and an all-around romantic. He has a hard time with living expenses and life in general because it doesn't like the artistic types, but he wholeheartedly believes in his work and in true love.

I absolutely loved watching Zane be so Zane to Beckett. I know a person who married a girl pretty similar to Zane. She was his Manic Pixie Dream Girl, and the guy is the King of Bulls and stubbornness. So I really really enjoyed this series so, so much. Anyta does a really spectacular job of making her characters real in a way that is super hard to find. The only other author I can immediately think of who does this is TJ Klune, so high compliments there.

This is a slow burn fully of quirky Pisces and shy, but strong and dependable Taurus situations that just make you devour the book at an amazing speed.

5+ stars in my book, absolutely.
