Oliver seems to be settling into his new life after losing his parents. With an apartment and college to pay for on his own, Oliver works hard to make ends meet. A handsome Italian man who comes to the restaurant Oliver works at has caught his eye. The man not only makes Oliver nervous but excited at the same time.
One night changes everything yet again for Oliver; his world is turned upside down. Could being at the wrong place at the wrong time actually turn out to be the best thing to happen to Oliver or the worst?
Oliver has never had a lot but, he has had a good life. That is until it came crashing down a year ago when his parents died suddenly. Now between working and college he barely makes it by. Oliver enjoys his job and loves those he works with. Only, there is one customer that has gotten under his skin. Amondo is a gorgeous Italian man who frequents the restaurant and always requests to be in his section. He makes Oliver feel extremely off kilter when around.
Amondo is extremely attracted to the young waiter and would love to make him his. Unfortunately, wanting and doing is two different things. He is gradually working towards asking Oliver out. Before this happens, Oliver ends up over hearing something he shouldn’t. Which turns the life Oliver knows upside down real quick.
Could this crazy turn of events be one of the best things to happen to Oliver after all?
Capturing Oliver is a sweet love story with a little drama thrown in. The writing flowed well and the characters are well developed. I really enjoyed witnessing Oliver and Amondo’s journey to find happiness. Both of these men are sweet and strong in their own ways. When they finally get together it is hot. The only thing I would change, is that I would love for it to be longer.
For readers who enjoy a short sweet love story then Capturing Oliver by Grein Murray would be a great book to experience.

When I’m not writing I like going to concerts. Music is a big part of my life, I’ve played bass guitar since I was a teen. I love nature and enjoy hiking and working with causes that help protect our planet and wild animals.
I have loved books all of my life and have always enjoyed escaping the ordinary world by getting lost in a good book. I read a lot of different genres of books but have fallen in love with MM. I support the gay community and hope one day people will see that love is love and that it is a beautiful thing no matter your gender, race or religion.
I am an avid animal lover and have quite a collection of pets in my home. I love ancient history and have studied Alexander the Great as well as Egypt and it’s pharaohs. I also am very interested in angels and have researched them and will put that to use in future books.
I hope that my readers continue to fall in love with my characters and that my stories touch their lives and bring them happiness.
