Blurb: Book 1 – When genius college student David and jock ex-rugby player Matt are put together as college roommates, they’re both in for an education that will change their lives. David’s sheltered upbringing has left him socially awkward, a 80s fashion sense and a stick-thin physique. Matt decides to look out for the daydreaming student and teaches about some of the things he has missed out on. They quickly become best friends.

However, David’s feelings for Matt grow deeper than just friendship. After an awkward encounter with a girl Matt sets him up with, David knows he only wants one thing.

But will David convince Matt to succumb to their desires? Or will it all end in disaster?

Book 2 – David, the geeky genius, and Matt, the jock, are happy and experiencing real love for the first time. In the height of their “honeymoon stage,” however, Christmas break sneaks up and they have to go their separate ways for a month.

Both struggle with being apart for the first time in months, while also dealing with parents who want to know about girlfriends and their futures.

David’s family is more accepting so he comes out to them. But Matt’s family is more traditional and very conservative so his month long break gives him some moral doubts. When they come back to campus this divide begins to tear at the relationship.

And when David gets involved with the LGBT group on campus and attracts the attention of an it’s gorgeous leader, Joshua, the relationship begins to strain.

Despite the bond they have built, Matt’s reluctance to be open with their relationship is driving them apart. When Matt’s parents visit and set him up with a family friend’s daughter, Matt is forced to make a decision. Under all the stress of his sexuality, he kisses the girl at the end of the night but realizes its David he really wants. But David is already at the January Prom with Joshua…

Book 3 – Matt has finally told his Dad about David and is dealing with his families anger and disappointment in him. He knew they wouldn’t be as accepting as David’s. But when Matt’s father cuts him off from the family business, he is devastated.

In the meantime, the two boys work on being more open with their relationship in public – it’s a struggle, but they both try to overcome their fears together.

Matt hasn’t spoken to his parents since the confession, but one day he gets a call from his mother inviting the two boys to come spend a weekend at their family home. This weekend will test their relationship to the absolute limits. But that doesn’t mean they can’t have some fun, especially when a game of tennis turns very sexual.

Will Matt’s parents accept their son for who he is?
Will their relationship last the weekend?
Will Matt show David his favorite make-out location?

Reviewer: Harper
Review: I enjoyed this bundle, much like I enjoyed other bundles by this author. However, I have a few points to make…

In the very beginning of the book, the author has some editing issues with regard to the names of characters, which caused me to have to reread parts numerous times. But, thankfully, it was only for the first few pages and after that, the name issue was no longer. Much like the author’s other bundle, these are not 3 novel length books, more 3 short novellas which put together still equated to a shorter book. I managed to read the entire bundle in the space of 3 hours.

Although I like the book, I did at times find the story to be too syrupy sweet. The reactions of their peers for example was just a little too good to be true. Sadly, it’s not realistic to say everyone was ecstatic that the king of the studs had discovered he’s gay.

Despite my points above, I did enjoy the bundle and will actively look to read another book by this author.

If you are a fan of sweet GFU love stories, then I’d highly recommend this book and this author to you.

Blurb: On the Road: We always find what we’re looking for in the last place we look.

At nearly three centuries old, Diego Tamang decides to take a more proactive approach to finding his mate. He walks away from leading his pack, so he can travel with Kontra Belikov and his shifter motorcycle gang. His decision pays off when he walks into a backwater town’s diner and scents his mate, Zachary Young.

Quickly making his intentions clear, Diego wonders what will be harder to overcome—Zachary’s young age, or his mother’s clearly displeased attitude. It turns out, neither, for soon Diego discovers that witches may have caused Zachary’s injury, which forces him to use a cane…and Zachary doesn’t know he’s a shifter.

Can Diego ease his young lover into the paranormal world while keeping him safe from those that would do him harm?

Review: This was an amazing story. Each book in the Kontra’s Menagerie Series focuses on a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, we recommend reading the series in sequential order. It keeps me from getting a bit lost in the stories and gives me an insight in to their world. A world that captured my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I love the way each character just mixes with the others. How fast they are to defend what is theirs and what they believe.

Charlie always gives me a wonderful book to read when times are getting hard to deal with. She always has beautifully created characters that have a way to suck you right in. You can tell that she puts all her heart in to her stories.

Diego was over three hundred years old and had wanted his mate for a very long time. He had even gotten married once, had children and grand children. He had not expected to find his mate in the diner on the way to search for others. He had left his pack to run with Kontra and his men. They were all gay and had decided to turn their pack into a refuge type. When he finds Zachary, he is surprised to find out that Zachary is a shifter. Too bad Zachary had no clue.

Zachary was just sitting at the diner with his mother when he met the sexiest man ever. After agreeing to a date, he has to let his mother down with the knowledge that he was not going to change like she wants. He had started having what he had originally thought were seizures and a bad leg when he was a teenager.

Now thanks to Diego’s pack he has found out not only about shifters, but also that the medicine he had been taking was suppressing his change. He was finding out quite a bit about the magical world and shifters.

When these two get together, you can just tell by the way they glance at each other that they are going to be hot. This story gives you everything you could want in a hot love story with angst, anger, betrayal, deadly witches, kinky situations, feisty mates, strong alpha’s, passionate glances, tantalizing sex, dangerous situations and not to mention two very sexy men.

I loved this book and cannot wait to get the next book. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. I love the way even with a serious tone it has quite a bit of humor in it.

I would recommend reading this book. It will give you all that you asked for and so much more. Charlie has an amazing gift that will draw you in and make you wish for more.

Blurb: T.J. Jones never believed in love. A shape-shifting tomcat, he’s had problems with one-night stands involving men who were horrified to find out what he was.

After getting burned one too many times, he decides he’ll shoot instead for becoming a grouchy lifelong bastard of a bachelor.

That’s before he runs into MacGowan, a smoking hot beach boy with an open heart and a sweet smile. MacGowan, an ingenuous, open-hearted sex bomb, wants T.J.’s body, his love, his friendship, and his trust.

T.J. doesn’t dare tell MacGowan that he’s a tomcat on the inside, but soon finds he has no choice when MacGowan’s developing wizard’s powers force the issue. Not only is he unwittingly MacGowan’s familiar, but MacGowan’s powers make him unable to control his shape shifting.

Review: Tomcat Jones takes you on a wild ride of a budding Supernatural romance. Author Willa Okati has created some funny situations for her characters to fall into. They are Misfits who find kinship within their oddities. It’s sweet how T.J. and MacGowan struggle with their new magical abilities and new love. T.J. try’s to hide his shape shifting from MacGowan who’s just found out he’s a Wizard.

I liked their kooky, but good-natured best friends. T.J. “Straight” BFF Arden makes a good bi-curious wingman. And Shavey MacGowns buddy is an over protective nice guy always looking out for him. The two best friends end up finding their own love connection. Mr. Jontan the Wizard and his psycho feral cat Sur Lune make good villains. Their sadistic torture of the boys made me laugh.

Okati writes hot, vivid, detailed sex only soul mates could have. T.J. and MacGowns journey to work out fears and insecurities is very realistic. Many people go through this when meeting a dream lover. This was a magical trip about finding true love and Man on Man romance! These are characters I want to know what happens next. I will definitely read the two follow-up books. You should read them in order to know the back-story.

Blurb: When Detective Aaron Bradshaw sweet talks his way into a vampire club, he doesn’t expect the owner to claim him for a mate.
Detective Aaron Bradshaw’s boss told him to get the vampire Orion’s cooperation in their police investigation. Little did he know that sweet-talking his way into the club would be the first step in establishing a long-term relationship with a vampire.

Orion has spent years alone. However, one look at the sexy detective and he knows who he wants to keep by his side. Aaron’s insistence upon throwing himself into danger drives Orion insane. How is he going to keep his lover safe and still let Aaron do his job hunting down the drug runners in Orion’s club?

Review: This was an amazing story. Each book in the A Vampire’s Kiss Series focuses on a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, we recommend reading the series in sequential order. It keeps me from getting a bit lost in the stories and gives me an insight in to their world.

Aaron is a police detective sent to find out who was dealing drugs out of a vampire club. He was to go in and get the owner to agree to help him find the answers he seeks. What he had not expected was for the owner to be so sexy and getting mated. He goes in to ask and comes out after a hot night of sex, mated. I guess I would be surprised also.

Orion knew the minute Aaron walked into his club that he was going to be his and keep him on his toes. His mate was a feisty one, now he wasn’t too sure, whether he liked the idea that he could be hurt on the job, but he sure was going to stick around to protect him. When these two get together, the place goes up in flames.

I was amazed with this story and I cannot wait to get my hands on the next one. It has the perfect mixture of lust, love, passion, angst, danger, and anger. I would recommend reading this especially if you love sexy men, vampires, men with badges, excitement, adventure, dangerous situation, crazy vampire friends and a perfect story all in one. It has that and so much more. It gave me everything that I could have asked for in a story.

I love the way it had a hint of humor in it. I love paranormals especially romance but if you add in humor, I am usually reading it. I must have a story that will draw me in and have me laughing at certain parts, crying at others and this story gave me that.

Review: This was an amazing story. This was book two in this series. Each book in the A Vampire’s Kiss Series focuses on a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, we recommend reading the series in sequential order. It keeps me from getting a bit lost in the stories and gives me an insight in to their world. A world that captured my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end.

It was amazing and I love the way the characters just come together and make a true story enjoyable. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end.

Five months ago, Zheng had been murdered by a vampire. His spirit had been put in a gem on a necklace till Aaron had found a body for him. Aaron had been told to find a human body because being in the body of a vampire would drive him mad. So Aaron had switched to homicide to do just that. When his partner was killed, Aaron had thought he had found the perfect body for Zheng. Problem with that was his partner was a vampire. So brought back to life in a way, Zheng had to get use to it all. The funny thing was the only one he felt like drinking from was Banner.

Banner was the hot bartender at Orion’s club. He knew that Zheng was his mate, but he wanted them to take it slow to get to know each other. Their passion had a way to make them burn even hotter for each other. When bodies started showing up Zheng and Aaron had to find the one who did it. Zheng had once been in love with Aaron but now his feelings were getting stronger for his mate. Banner was already falling in love with his mate and worried that Zheng couldn’t feel for him what he feels for Zheng. Now all he had to do is to keep his newly turned vampire mate safe.

I absolutely loved this story. It has the perfect twist to make this story make you crave for more. I would recommend reading this story, especially if you love sexy men, crazy vampires, twist and turns, excitement, danger and amazing sex. It gave me that and so much more. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next story.

Another Place in Time

Welcome to another place in time…where one can be swept away into lands and eras long forgotten. 

“Office Romance” by Tamara Allen

The post-war economy is at a standstill, much like Foster Wetherly’s life until he’s forced to do battle with irritatingly confident—and competent—fellow ex-doughboy Casey Gladwin for a position in their shrinking department at Manhattan Security Mutual.

“Introducing Mr. Winterbourne” by Joanna Chambers

Lysander Winterbourne appears to lead a charmed life. Handsome, amiable, and a renowned sportsman, he is the darling of London society. As far as Adam Freeman is concerned though, Lysander is just another spoiled aristocrat.

A wealthy mill owner, Adam has no time for the frivolous world of the ton, but when his younger brother becomes engaged to Althea Winterbourne, he reluctantly agrees to be introduced to society–with the Winterbourne clan’s golden boy as his guide.

Resigning himself to a few days of boredom, Adam is surprised to learn that there is much more to Lysander than his perfect surface. But will Adam have the courage to introduce Lysander Winterbourne to his own secret self?

“The Ruin of Gabriel Ashleigh” by KJ Charles

 Lord Gabriel Ashleigh is a ruined man. Last night he lost everything at the card tables to his brother’s worst enemy, notorious gambler Francis Webster. Tonight, he’s going back for one more game. Ash thinks he has nothing left to lose. But Francis sets the stakes, and they’re higher than Ash could have imagined…

Two Regency bucks. One game of cards. Everything to play for.

“Unfair in Love and War” by Kaje Harper

Many men lost brothers overseas in the summer of 1944. Warren Burch was one of them. For months he still clung to his big city life in Philadelphia, but finally he’s made the difficult choice to return to his home town. Warren’s polio-stricken leg won’t let him serve, so the least he can do is be there for his mother, when brother Charlie never again will. Arriving home means a whole new life, constrained by the rhythms and prejudices of a small town. Fortunately, it’s made more interesting by the mysterious and attractive young man next door.


“Carousel” by Jordan L. Hawk

When a child goes missing, is it a simple case of a young runaway, or are more sinister forces at work?

“Carousel” is part of the Whyborne & Griffin series and takes place between the events of Stormhaven and Necropolis. It can be read as a standalone.

“Deliverance” by Aleksandr Voinov

This is a re-vamped, re-edited, improved version of “Deliverance”. It’s about William Raven, a templar, who thought he’d escaped his past. (Same character as in The Lion of Kent.)

Along with a foreword written by Alex Beecroft, enjoy these original short stories that make up “Another Place in Time”. 

All proceeds from the purchase of this anthology will be donated to AllOut.org in celebration of LGBT History Month, October 2014.

The Story of:  HAWK, PIERCE, SHOT & FOX ALONG WITH THE OTHER BEASTMASTERS

Pierce aka Strategic Intelligence Specialist, Backhander is back to flush out some of the DEA’s most notorious criminals, and he has one helluva’ team backing him up. The country’s most decorated Navy Seals…the Beastmasters. 

Pierce is more than capable of doing his job, but he has one insanely hot distraction that continuously causes him to second guess his hidden orientation– 

Dane Aramis, call-sign, Hawk. Hawk can see what most people can’t, and whether his sexy Pierce wants to admit it or not, he can see the brilliant man’s desire runs deep for him.

However, when Pierce and the Beastmasters are on their final assignment, the last person they expect to encounter with the opposition is rogue assassin…Omega. The man is unstoppable, and when he comes too close to what Hawk holds dear, the Beastmasters call on the only man that can control the lethal assassin. Omega’s faster, deadlier brother, Alpha.

Bringing Alpha back into society may be disastrous for everyone involved. But, Hawk is willing to take that risk to keep Pierce safe.

Blurb: You never know what you’ll find in south Texas—or what will find you.

Trent Jacek doesn’t want too much—to live on the ranch his brother owns, a few puppies to keep him company in his trailer, maybe a good man if he can find one. First he has to catch a break long enough to try. Things just aren’t slowing down on the Jacek ranch. They’ve got a barn to rebuild, and their plan to get a pack of shifter wolves off their back doesn’t seem to be working.

Then there’s the matter of the bones the police are looking for on the ranch. After a grayed, old femur was left on the porch, Trent and his brother Joe are forced to confront some things they’d never expected to. Is that solitary bone from their mother, who went missing over twenty years ago? If so, how did she end up there? If not, who is dumping people on the ranch?

Trent’s been having the strangest dreams since he’s seen that femur but can’t imagine they’re more than just dreams. He doesn’t have a lot of time to worry about them between shifter attacks, a nosy biologist, and neighbors coming by to snoop.

What Trent doesn’t know is someone has put an assassin on his tail, but it’s the assassin who will come to question everything he’s been told once he meets the vibrant, sexy man he’s been sent to kill.

Review: Trent Jacek is a handsome, sarcastic, and tough as nails kinda guy. He will stop at nothing to protect those he loves. Mahon Morrison is a big, hairy, sexy assassin bear shifter sent to kill Trent. He doesn’t realize the quickie he just had with a stranger was really Trent until the owner of the building tells him. He attempts to sneak up on Trent at his home, but instead gets soaked with a water hose, ordered to strip and walk into the house then gets knocked unconscious by Trent.

Upon awakening, he finds himself tied up with a tarantula crawling up his leg. He freaks out and shifts. After everyone calms down Mahon is informed that what he was told about Joe, Trent, and Diego was wrong. Confused he thinks thing through and realizes he’s being used to do the dirty work for Diego’s old packs Alpha. So he decides to protect them the best he can against the other bear shifters and wolves the alpha will surely send to make sure the job gets done.

Along the way, Trent and Mahon fall in love amid fighting against bear shifters, wolves and an annoying biologist. I really enjoyed reading this wonderfully written story. It had drama, action, love, intense fight scenes, and a lot of funny parts about the tarantulas and the way people reacted to them. Plus a lot of hot sex between Trent and Mahon. Bailey has delivered yet another amazing story.

Loved it.

Highly recommend this book.

A Taste Of Copper

by

Elin Gregory

Your master has the field for today, but his name, whatever it might be, is without honour.

Olivier the squire worships the Black Knight and takes a fierce joy in his prowess as he defends a bridge against all comers. Olivier only wishes that his master loved him as much in return instead of treating him as a servant and occasional plaything.

Then word comes that the King desires to cross the bridge. With an army approaching, a bright eyed archer enticing him to desert and the first cracks beginning to show in the Black Knight’s gruff demeanour, Olivier is left wondering if his honour is worth more than a chance for happiness.

Blurb: Damien, Alpha of the San Antonio pack had thought it was an awesome idea to take his mate, Scott, back to his ex-home pack to catch up with his parents and ex-Alpha. He had assumed that his power as a wolf, and the fact that he was from such a large pack would guarantee both men a good time.

A homophobic Alpha and a disgruntled mother are just two of the problems the men face. In fact, if Damien isn’t careful his mate might not make it back to Texas alive.

Included as a free read – Malacai Finds His Mate
Malacai, Second in the San Antonio Pack has waited over eighty years to find his true mate. When he and his Alpha Damien rescue a young shifter from a hole under a kitchen, he never believed his search was finally over. Unfortunately, life has a habit of intervening and the path to his HEA was going to take a lot more work than he had bargained on.

Purchase Link: http://www.amazon.com/Never-Go-Back-Including-Cloverleah-ebook/dp/B00NB8C3NK

Review: This is Book 3.5 of the Cloverleah Pack series and is based on the characters in Book 3 (When No Doesn’t Cut It). While it contains enough back-story to be read as a standalone, if you want to know more about the characters then please read the first three books. This story has a special ending to it. It has an extra little story for those who want to learn a bit more about Malacai and his mate. Reading the first three books also gives you an insight into their amazing world and the lives that these gorgeous men had. I can guarantee that you will fall in love with these men and want to hear more about them.

Damien is the Alpha of the biggest and strongest pack in the world. He would do everything in his power for his mate and that included taking him back to his home pack to visit everyone there including his old Alpha and parents. What he found when they arrived was hatred and bigotry. He realized by taking him home his mate was horribly hurt. His heart was breaking with the way his mother was.

Damien had known that Scott’s mother had not wanted to do anything with him or his brother when they came out gay. He had just not known the whole story. When bringing him back he had to explain heatedly that Scott was his true mate, which brought on more trouble. The only good thing out of it was Scott’s father and his best friend Elijah back with them.

Scott couldn’t believe the way his old pack was, but his mate proved to be the one that loved him the most. He was well-loved and protected. His friend Elijah needed all the help he could get. And from the looks Elijah was getting from Malacai, he was getting a mate.

Malacai had waited over eighty years for his true mate. When he realizes that Elijah was that he would do everything in his power to protect him and show him that he was wanted and loved. Although a man of that age still had a little misguidings, it would take the feisty attitude and temper from his mate to realize just what he had to give.

I loved this story and cannot wait to get my hands on the next story. It never fells to make my temper boil at hearing about what some so-called parents do to their own flesh and blood. The way Scott, his brother and Elijah were treated by their mothers makes me want to tear those so-called mothers apart. However, the love that their mates give them makes my heart swell and I cannot wait to read more about them. It captured my attention from the moment I started reading it and kept it all the way to the very end.

I would recommend reading this especially if you love sexy men, hot shifters, feisty mates, excitement, arrogant Alpha’s getting their butts kicked, mothers being told off, and danger. It gives you that and so much more. I loved this book more because it gave me an extra story to read. I loved Malacai and Elijah almost as much if not more than Damien and Scott. Scott had a difficult time with his old pack, but Elijah made my heart hurt with what he had gone through.

Lisa always writes stories that show what a true love feels like. She tells her stories with such heart and passion that I will continue to love her stories.

Blurb: Clueless detective Miles Diamond scours the globe, leaving no man undone, in his quest to solve the case of the missing twin.

Our hero, Miles Diamond, narrowly averts financial catastrophe when he is hired by David Travis to find his missing twin brother. Unfortunately, Miles’ new case almost immediately throws him into a dangerous world of sex trafficking, drugs and international terrorism where he is soon in as much danger as the man he is trying to find. So far, Miles has survived an attempt to drown him, a bomb aboard an airplane, a pitched gun battle, a fall from the roof of Notre Dame Cathedral and enough hot sex to bring an ordinary man to his knees.

Part 5: Miles and his pals arrive in Morocco and are immediately sidetracked by a sinister drug smuggler who whisks them up into the remote Atlas Mountains. After several tense days, the crew makes their escape. They arrive in the fabled city of Marrakech where the action and danger intensifies as they draw closer to the elusive twin. The action reaches fever pitch in a derelict hotel where Miles makes one last heroic effort to save himself, his friends—and the money.

Blurb: For as long as Trav Ford has known the Sanders boys, one name has haunted the entire band. Their first lead guitarist and Mackey’s first lover has left a stamp on the kids he’s known as a family, and now Grant has one last chance to hurt the people Trav cares for most.

Except Grant isn’t the monster Trav made him out to be, and coming home is harder on the band, and Trav, than he ever could have anticipated. When Trav is confronted with the reality of what Mackey and his brothers left behind, and with what they’re about to lose, he has to seriously reconsider if he’s strong enough to deal with everything that Mackey and Outbreak Monkey have come to represent. Fortunately for Trav, Mackey’s learned a lot in the past year, and one of his best lessons is how to hold on to the people he loves.

Review: *Note. This review is of part 6 of the serial*
Trav and Mackey have been through a lot together whether it is on the business end, as a couple or as individuals. You would think by now Trav would have learned that they deal with issues best as a couple, but following Mackey and the band back to Tyson opens some doors that were probably best left shut. For starters, Grant is not the demon that Trav has convinced himself the man had to be. He deserted Mackey and the band, he lives his life in the closet, and worst, he hurt Mackey to a point that the scar will never heal. But seeing Grant at his most vulnerable state, so open, honest, and frail, shows Trav that he is just a man like the rest of them.

Then when the band holds a concert at the place where they launched their careers, the end result is a disaster, showing Trav exactly how hateful and ignorant the people who Mackey and his brothers grew up with are. In a moment of weakness brought on by confusion and utter exhaustion, Trav escapes and leaves Mackey alone with his family. It could have sent Mackey into a tailspin, but thank Christ, Mackey realizes how important his family, sobriety and Trav are to him. So he goes after the man he loves, determined to bring him back, kicking and screaming if he has to.

This wasn’t my favorite installment in this serial. It just didn’t have the same feel to me that the other parts have as I’ve taken this journey with Mackey, Trav and the band. But, that could be the purpose, Lane’s mind set for where she is going to take us in part 7. That being said, this is still a very well written and thought out story, and I’m so invested in these characters that I’m sitting here, waiting, with bated breath for the next installment!

If you like dark and dangerous stories that grab you, twist you up and make you crave more than this is a must read. Be sure to start with part 1, as each story is a continuation of the last. Only two more parts to go, I can’t wait to see where this ends. Will Trav and Mackey find a way to deal with the demons of the past, and build a future together? We shall see.

Blurb: In a world where it’s unusual but men can carry children, boutique owner Kyle Gerritsen has just about managed to get his life back on an even keel after a pretty rocky couple of years when someone puts a brick through his shop window. Typical of the way his life has gone of late it’s suspected he is the latest victim of a mini crime wave in his neighborhood and he is horrified when one of the investigating detectives assigned to his case turns out to be Jonah Goldman – otherwise known as the one night stand that has unknowingly fathered Kyle’s beloved son Shea.

Kyle doesn’t know whether to be relieved or outraged when it is apparent that Jonah has no memory of their night together but knows that he needs to do everything he can to keep out of the studly detective’s way in future – especially as the gleam in the detective’s eye is all too familiar and the last time he saw it he ended up a single father!

Jonah just knows that there’s something about Kyle and he’s just interested enough to ignore Kyle’s increasingly desperate attempts at rejection to try to figure out what it is.

Reviewer: Portia

Review: I have to confess that I HATE M-preg books. My overly pragmatic mind simply cannot wrap itself around the concept of a man bearing a child. But, one of my favorite type of het romance, are secret babies, so I was very curious as to how Taylor Lewis was going to handle the M/M version. A Memory Away might just be the title to make me rethink that opinion.

First off, the explanation of how Kyle was able to conceive was extremely plausible. And without pulling out all my old anatomy books, I could see it. Secondly, Kyle is not a woman with a penis. He thinks, acts and reacts like a man. Even when he was wearing pretty panties and taking care of Jonah, I always saw him as a man, and for me that’s important.

But, Jonah is who I absolutely loved. He is a hot mess. He knows how to be the big bad detective, but when it comes to emotions, he is so clueless. I almost felt sorry for him. Love and relationships were not on his radar, not to mention fatherhood to “the kid,” but he accidentally fell. And fell hard.

I would recommend this story to readers who like their romance with a little sweetness mix in. Sweet babies, badass partners, and kickass best friends.

Highly recommend.

Reviewer: Portia
Review: This book confused me, at first. I really couldn’t get a handle on exactly whose story it was. On one hand, Stan is kinda sorta in a relationship, yet crushing on his boss. Eli is taking a trip to see some unknown man, but we aren’t sure of the nature of their relationship. But, all of that is becomes unimportant as crime hits their small town.

This is one of those books at a). I’d like to see turned into a movie and b). MADE me turn the page to find out what was going to happen. For a while, the mystery overtook the romance, but I don’t mind when that happens.

And “The Proposal” made me forgive any other issues I had with the work. It was just toooo sweet.

I would recommend this title to readers who like a bit of romance in their mysteries, grouchy lawmen, and fake Yankees.
