Blurb: When he was eight years old, Scott Fogel died. Paramedics revived him, but he came back changed. Ghosts and spirits tormented Scott for over a decade until, thinking he was going mad, he did the only thing he could.

He ran—leaving behind his best friend, Tim Jennesee.

Scott’s had five normal, ghost-free years in Chicago, when the spirit of Tim’s mother comes to him and begs him to go home because Tim’s in trouble and needs him.

He isn’t prepared for what he finds when he goes home—a taller and sexier Tim, but a Tim who hasn’t forgiven Scott for abandoning him… a Tim whose body is no longer his own. The ghost of a serial murderer has attached itself to Tim, and it’s whispering dark and evil things. It wants Tim to kill, and it’s becoming harder for Tim to resist. To free the man who has always meant so much to him, Scott must unravel the mystery of the destiny he shares with Tim.

Shorty’s Review: 💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

A fascinating tale about two young men, Tim and Scott, who find out they are more than they thought. Their journey is not without heartache, loss and self discovery as well as ghosts calling out for help and a an evil spirit hellbent on continuing his evil existence and work no matter the cost.

I truly loved everything about the paths that Tim and Scotty found themselves on from a young age. They had to deal with things they were too young to understand at the time. Scotty decides to run from the ghosts and travels to Chicago when he’s a young man. After five years the ghost of Tim’s mother implores him back to help Tim before something bad happens. Upon seeing Tim Scotty knows he never should have left and so begins the journey of discovering who they are and what their purpose is in life to each and others.

I loved all the side characters as they added a better understanding to the story. The serial killer ghost was a nasty piece of work to say the least. I could not believe how long he had been around for doing what he was doing. Tim has some bitter feelings for Scotty which was understandable.

The explanation of what the lock and key were was fascinating. I was swept up in the entire story from start to finish and was sad when it ended as I wanted more. The only thing I wanted to know at the end which was not revealed was what Tim did to the ghost that had been trying to possess him.

Fast paced, edge of your seat, suspenseful and intriguing beginning to a series that I am looking forward to diving into further.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Pixie’s Review:  💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

I’ll be honest, there isn’t much that I can add to Shorty’s review.

The Spirit Key is a superbly crafted paranormal story that drags you in and holds on till you get to the last page. Both Scotty and Tim are excellent characters, they have quite a bit to work through to get to on the same page. It’s far from easy and there are one or two scenes that have you gritting your teeth and praying that they can work things out.

Now, Tim proves to be possessed so I am gonna warn you that it is a truly evil spirit and it makes Tim do some things that he would never dream of doing. It is hard to read in those moments and know that the evil spirit gets whats coming to it.

Scotty has a lot to discover about his gifts and how to accept them, and Tim has a lot to overcome. Both men will need to forgive themselves for them to move forward with their relationship, and it’s not easy for either of them.

The background story really is fascinating and as we delve into the responsibility of the Lock and Key we understand just what Scotty and Tim face in the future.

I recommend this to those who adore stories of spirits, forgiveness, finding a new future, returning to the love of your life, and a very interesting ending.

Blurb: Family can be a blessing and a curse, but for artist Florian, it’s a nightmare he longs to escape.

As chief designer for Bartholomew Porcelain Studio, Florian specializes in painting birds. He also watches them in the wild to distract himself from his short-tempered mother, at least temporarily. Florian’s heart is too soft to leave his stepsister, Ella, to suffer alone. Still, he can’t help dreaming about one day finding happiness and love.

When Count Dieter von Hollenbach arrives in town to visit a friend and present an award, he isn’t looking for romance. Then again, he doesn’t expect someone as perfect as Florian to come into his life. To make sure Florian is all he seems and that their connection is genuine, Dieter keeps his title to himself.

But he isn’t the only one with a secret.

At a masquerade ball to celebrate the award, some of the masks fall away, but those that remain in place could destroy the love beginning to grow between them.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: I love reading anything by Andrew Grey and will do so without taking too much notice of the blurb. I love his writing style, I always connect with it and always feel the emotions of the characters that he weaves throughout the prose. One thing is that this series tends to step away from having children so closely related to the MCs that they become almost a main character themselves.

Redeeming the Stepbrother is the second book in Grey’s Tales from St Giles series, and for the most part is based partially of the classic tale of Cinderella. Except that Cinderella character in this title seems to be shared by one of the MCs (the titular stepbrother) and his younger stepsister (who stays firmly as a background character). I love books that are either inspired by or are simply a modern MM retelling of the classic fairytales. Here, Grey only takes elements of the old tale and crafts the lives of people in an idyllic, sleepy town which is dependent on the Bartholomew family porcelain business to hire a great deal of the locals.

Basically, if you like the elements I just described, I know you’ll get a lot of enjoyment out of this book.

The story is the romance between Florian Cinderson and Count Dieter von Hollenbach. Dieter keeps his title a secret for much of the story, and with the last name Cinderson and a stepsister called Ella, it’s clear that Florian is the character to have elements of Cinderella injected into his story.

As I said before, he tends to share the Cinderella story with Ella. Ella is the one that is treated as a slave by her stepmother. Florian misses his deceased stepfather a lot, the man was an important role model for him, but the only reason he sticks around is because his mother and brother can be fairly horrible people. He loves his sister to bits and will do anything to protect her. It’s a complicated story to unpack, but that is why you need to read the book and I won’t make any potentially spoilery comments.

Dieter on the other hand Mr tall, dark, handsome and mysterious. He feels an instant attraction to Florian, the main reason why he was in town anyway. It was because of Florian’s artwork that the Bartholomew porcelain works were honored with a very important prize. Dieter has a complicated family as well, although his are not intrusive like Florian’s. Quite simply, in finding love Dieter begins to find peace with his past as he realizes the depths of what he feels and the importance of Florian in his life. The main hurdle these guys have to deal with in the end is the fact that they live and work in two different countries on two different continents.

I really adore both books in this series so far, I love the fairy tale element. I sincerely hope that there are more Tales from St Giles to come in the future.

Blurb: Coven leader Cain Windgate was aware he had a mate on the farm where members of his coven wanted to relocate. He didn’t know how a mate would fit into his orderly life. And if there was more than one? All he could envision was a future of chaos. When he arrived on the farm to discuss members of his coven desiring to move there, he finally learned their numbers and their identities. There were three of them. Three mates with distinctly different personalities. Not one of them was a vampire, someone who would know that vampires were governed by strict rules, none of which included adding sparkles to anything. There was Chance Harding, a werewolf that had once been human. Then there was Larson Brekken, a brown bear shifter who loved to stir up trouble. And, lastly, there was Pebin Xavier Muldoon, a fairy with a love for all things shiny. Nope, not a vampire among them.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: A large mixture of attitudes and quirks. Cain is the leader of his vampires and has a big job of doing it. However he also knows his mates are not there. He has a feeling that they are at the ranch and isn’t really to into it. He just has no clue how to make it work. He is a city vampire and those at the ranch are well not. He just had not expected three of them, and there is not a vampire in the mix.

Chance was a human but is now a werewolf and has one hell of a grumpy attitude towards everyone. Larson is the big ass bear shifter who just loves to drive Chance crazy. Neither are really big on popping out babies, which is probably why they are not doing the dirty right off the bat. Then there is sexy little Pebin. Now Pebin is a fairy who wants to pop out those babies and decorate everything with glitter. Four separate personallities and damn is this going to be funny as hell.

I spent most of my time wanting to smack the alpha’s in the ass and laughing at Pebin. He was the best character of them all. The whole group if a blast to read about, and lets not forget Fred’s crazy ass five year olds and their stealing ways. The only danger of them all. It is a eays read with a nice pace going for it. The only problem with it was that it seems to be missing a certain spark to it. The connection between the four men just doesn’t seem to go smoothly which in some ways works out fine but in others makes it seem like they were pushed to it.

Overall I had a blast reading it and can’t wait to get my hands on the next story. I was real glad to see that none of these guys were given a female mate, but that is just me. I would definitely recommend it.

Blurb: Cold Case Detective, Ronan O’Mara is stunned to see the breaking news that a well-known mobster he helped to put behind bars, Vito “The Dragon” Dragonni, has been released from prison after his life sentence is overturned on a technicality. When prominent members involved in the original case against The Dragon start turning up dead, Ronan starts to wonder if he’s next.

Psychic, Tennyson Grimm starts having visions of dead men with The Dragon’s signature kill shot: two bullet holes to the forehead. The men in the visions are strangers, but when he learns from an undercover agent that Dragonni has compiled a hit list with Ronan and his ex-partner, Tony, at the top, he fears a day will come when he recognizes the murder victim in his vision.

Tony Abruzzi has been a broken man since the tragic death of his adopted son, Mark. Refusing the offer of protective custody until Dragonni and his hit squad are off the streets, he seems to be daring the mobster to come after him. Despite the fact that they’ve been estranged since the case that cost Tony’s son his life, Ronan decides to stick to his former partner’s side as his personal bodyguard, whether Tony wants his help or not.

Can Ronan and Tony find a way to work together to stop The Dragon before he can cross more names off his hit list or are both detectives dead men walking?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Two me on the outs find a common goal and come together to stop a crime figure they thought was finally behind them. I loved this story.

Intense emotions and scenes culminate in a suspenseful ride into a dangerous situation where Ronan protects his ex partner from the Dragon before the Dragon or his men can eliminate Tony like his son was.

I do not want to give away too much of the story in this review. I love that despite Tony and Ronan’s estrangement these two work together once again. The Dragon and his men are no joke when the bodies start piling up it gets scary quick.

Intense and fast paced this story will have you on the edge of your seat awaiting the outcome.

Great addition.

Blurb: “Everybody has their own agenda. Everybody.”

Hunted for the unique blood that runs through his veins, half-angel, half-demon Gabriel Sinclair lives without expectations. On the run from forces on both sides of an ancient conflict, he searches for strength and peace in a world which only seeks to use him.

When Gabriel is forced to stop running, assigned a team—and a mate—he doesn’t want, and reluctantly tasked with a mission, he must overcome obstacles both real and imagined. Otherwise, the world as he knows it, and the mate he’s reluctantly come to care for, may cease to exist.

“I will do as the Creator bids me. Always.”

Evander Ryan is special, and he knows it. The final handcrafted immortal warrior for the light, he is the Creator’s greatest masterpiece. For fifty-eight years, he’s lived his life in black and white, coddled by his Maker, while leading his team to countless victories against their enemies. Those fights were easy. Working with a new, uncooperative mate who sees the world in shades of gray? Less so.

As Evander’s eyes are opened to the existence of light warriors who are not good, dark warriors who are, and the wider world of supernatural beings, he learns nothing is as he thought it was, and his mate isn’t who he thought he was either. Maybe there’s something to be said for not always following the rules. . .

This book is LGBT Urban Fantasy with a romantic subplot. Not recommended for readers under 18.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Gabriel is the kind of guy that pulls no punches in anything he does. This is never truer when his uncles Michael and Barrados, ask him to team up with Evander and his group to track down Gabriel’s father. He is not happy with this at all and it shows. Imagine his surprise when Michael tells him he has to mate with Evander who does not want to mate with him either but will do his duty.

I loved everything about this story except for the parts that seemed a little long winded. The action, suspense and mystery were off the charts. I loved that not all the characters got along at first and it made for some tense moments within the group.

I really like the way the story progressed with the many twists and turns that had me on the edge of my seat making me wonder what was going to happen next. I am hoping we learn more about the rest of the crew as the series continues.

Fantastic read.

Blurb: California firefighter Hayden Hurst is starting to realize there’s more to life than fighting fires and drinking with his buddies. He has room in his home and his life for someone special, but no one has stood out among his hookups. And while he’s out at work, admitting he’s gay is very different from showing up at social functions with a man. He’s afraid that’ll be too much for his less-than-accepting “friends.”

Broadway dancer Jez Bouchet hasn’t been mistaken for straight since he was gay-bashed at seventeen. After getting a lucrative job offer in Hollywood, he uproots his life in New York and drives to Los Angeles. His brother, who is Hayden’s best friend, arranges for him to crash at Hayden’s place.

The attraction between Hayden and Jez is unexpected but fiery, and they succumb before they’re even sure they like each other. But Jez hates Hayden’s homophobic friends, and Hayden knows Jez is too flamboyant for him to fly under the radar. Then there’s the complication of Jez’s brother.

Despite those hurdles, they fling themselves into a relationship. But Jez has secrets: a tiny spoiled dog and a determined stalker. If he doesn’t come clean, he might torch their burgeoning relationship before it has a chance to bloom.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Jez decided to move closer to his brother when his crazy ex got crazier. He had had a rough life growing up. His father was one nasty piece of work and his older brother got him away from it all. The problem was it also meant he hadn’t see his brother in quite some time. So the move to California was spur of the moment shock. Then his brother told him he had the best place to stay until he found one for himself. He just hadn’t expected, Hayden.

Hayden wasn’t in the closet so to speak but he kept his mouth shut around some of his so called friends. Letting his best friends little brother stay would not be so bad. Well that is until he caught site of little brother, and damn if his heart didn’t stutter.

It would seem Jez had man secrets although one of the tickled Hayden quite a bit. A pug named Fang was quite adorable. However the stalker was not. I had not had a chance to read to many stories by this author and wasn’t to sure what to expect. In fact I had previously read one that didn’t work with me, so when I started reading this story lets just say my surprise was there. Excitement, danger, and some hot sexy times are just a bit of what you get in this book. I absolutely loved Jez. He was a sweetie with a hard past. I couldn’t put the book down until I finished. I can tell you that this one will be read more than once.

I got a big kick out of this story and shed some tears as well. I loved this book and would definitely recommend it.

He has other problems, anyway. For years he’s tried to get Santa to look at the growing inventory of damaged toys in the warehouse, to no avail.

Review: I was pleasantly surprised by Operation Toy Rescue it turned out to be a delightful story with a well-balanced love story mixed with a brilliant storyline.

Jules has been exiled from the North Pole to Snow Hope Island for ninety days for his naughty behaviour. After a short time at Snow Hope he begins to get ideas for saving the misfit toys that are banished there, his passion for his new job leads him to a close working relationship with Felix.

Felix loves Snow Hope Island it’s all he’s ever known but he feels sad at all the toys who will never have a child to love them, when Jules challenges him to consider fixing the toys and finding homes for them it gives him hope. Working closely with Jules has him admiring him and it’s not long before he’s hoping for more.

This is a lovey story that warms your heart as Jules and Felix fall in love while rescuing the fate of damaged toys. It’s a gentle love story that has a touch of tension in it, not only is it a race to prepare the toys for Christmas but a figure from Jules past surprises them both.

I thoroughly enjoyed this entertaining story and think it’s a perfect Christmas story. It’s sweet, cute and while there are not huge amounts of passion there are still some sexy times that are just perfect for the relationship and a story of this length.

I recommend this to those who adore cute Christmas stories, for characters discovering love, a brilliant storyline and a very happy ending for all.

Drew’s always been a fighter: first in martial arts competitions, and now as a dreamcatcher—keeping the people of Seattle safe from spaga attacks that would drain their life force in their sleep. All he has to do to become a full member of Team 32 is complete his first mission.

But the first person he must defend is his ex, Angelo… the only man Drew ever loved, even if he was the one to leave. Drew never got over Angelo, and it seems Angelo might feel the same, despite the heartbreak he suffered at Drew’s hands.

As the chase after a powerful and resourceful caster hits close to home, old feelings resurface. But if Angelo learns of the dreamcatchers, he’ll be a target for the spaga. And how can he trust Drew now that Drew’s keeping bigger secrets than ever?

Reviewer: Prime

Review: I wasn’t sure what to expect with this one. I’ve never read anything by Liv Olteano, but I was more than happy to try a new author and hope that the novel would bring a change of pace to my current TBR pile. After a long line of reading various witch/wizard/mage stories I thought that I would enjoy this change of pace. It looked like a bit of action, in the sense of reading a crime fighting type story, mixed with romance. Judging from the blurb, this seemed like a rather different type of story than I’ve been reading recently.

Lover, Lover is the first book in Olteano’s Dreamcatchers series, based around the men of Team 32 finding their true loves in between keeping Seattle safe from a spate of demon (spaga) attacks. Spaga are demons that normally drain people’s life force when they sleep, however, things are getting out of hand. The team need to figure out who or what is causing the increase in attacks. What I like about this is that these men aren’t necessarily the usual alpha, strong type of shape-shifter, vampire, etc. They are rather ordinary men who have honed their powers and have been selected to form the teams they are with.

This story has the action I mentioned just now, yet is also at heart a very sweet romance where two men who had been together once find each other once more. Drew is an expert martial arts fighter, but he has dreamed of doing more and his path led him to being on Team 32. He has been trained and now their leader declares that it is time for Drew’s first assignment. He starts his job with enthusiasm and despite finding out he has to protect his ex, Angelo, Drew will do anything to make sure the man is safe. The reason they broke up comes down to simple stupidity and being brought together again, this time with Angelo knowing the full truth, shows that things weren’t as impossible as the two men had thought they were in the past.

This story is the start of an ongoing mystery – who the hell is letting so many spaga loose in Seattle. It’s a fun story. I think this will appeal not only to paranormal fans, but to those that enjoy romance series that follow military/police/crime fighting teams.

Review: In a time where being gay could become deadly, two men fall in love. A wooden angel has given Christopher the best of luck. Now she was leading him to love, however first they must find out who killed one of the others in the show.

Edward loved and hated his father. His father was the one who led the production and his mother was an actress. She took off when him and his brother were very young. He hated show business but his borhter loved it. However when a sexy magician catches his eye, things do heat up. Then the body of one of the entertainers shows up in his man’s act, well they need to get to the bottom of this.

Not bad for the time period. I do need to pay attention to what books are given to me though. I do not really get into them but I will say that it was entertaining. However other than the angel, I didn’t see much about Christmas in this story. It was more focused on their love and the murder. It was told with a even pace, but the story felt very rushed to me. Or should I say to much added in that could have been better off turning it into a larger story.

I will admit that it was better than what I expected. However I didn’t really get as captivated in it as one should. I will admit that it just wasn’t one of my type of stories. Other than that it was pretty good, and I would recommend it.

Blurb: Can Connor show River a real family Christmas?

When Connor finds River on the roof of the campus admin building, he doesn’t know what to do. His friend is drunk, and shouting into a snowstorm, a bottle of vodka in his hand. The easy part is getting River down; the hard part is insisting River comes home with Connor for Christmas.

River doesn’t have a family, or any place outside of college that he calls home. Not that it matters to him; he’s happy being alone for Christmas in his budget motel, watching reruns of Elf. Only, Connor keeps telling wildly improbable stories of the perfect family celebrations at his parents’ ranch in Texas, and it’s wearing River down. He didn’t ask to be kidnapped. He didn’t want to fall in love with the entire Campbell-Hayes family. But he does.

From one Christmas to the next. This is Connor’s year to rescue River, and himself, for them both to mess things up, make things right, fall in lust and finally, for Connor to show the man he loves what being part of a family can mean.

Purchase Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Review: Home for Christmas is a sweet and warm story, where two young men begin to find their place in the world and one of them discovers hope and love.

Connor has had a blessed life with his family; he’s never known what it’s like to be all alone with little hope. River has been alone for many years, college is all he has now and after a bad diving practice he’s drunk, on the edge of a roof.

When Connor finds River on the roof, he’s worried about his friend and secret crush. River is annoyed with Connor because of all the sweet stories he tells about his family. When Connor persuades River to come home with him, River just doesn’t believe that Connor’s family is as wonderful as he makes out, but the Campbell-Hayes family sneaks past River’s walls.

This really is a sweet story; Connor has grown into a compassionate man but he still has a little bit of little boy in him when he thinks about disappointing his dads. Connor knows what he doesn’t want to do but doesn’t know if he can tell his dads, finding the strength to admit the truth is down to River, as he sees River’s determination to follow his passion. River tries to be hardened with being alone, but his yearning to be part of a family he’s never had peeks out. River knows what he wants out of life and he’s going to grab it with both hands, but he doesn’t think he will get love because he’s always been cast away before.

These two young men both think the other doesn’t want them, but spending time together they finally realise the truth and discover a love that they both need.

I enjoyed this story, it was lovely to see Connor all grown up and him discovering his own forever love. River is an amazing character, his passion for his future is wonderful and his discovery of love and family is very sweet.

Connor and River together give hope to those young men out there who are alone, who have been discarded during their youth, who feel they don’t deserve love.

I recommend this to those who love sweet love stories, who adore determined men, who love the discovery of love and family and a very happy ending.

The blasted angel refuses to leave him be, behaving not at all like an inanimate object should.

Alec Allston is resigned to the fact that his love will ever be a river that flows out and never flows in. All he wanted to do was create a special gift so that a small part of himself could be with his unattainable and noble beloved, always. But when the gift keeps showing back up at his shop in the hands of a windblown and rugged thief-taker, Alec will need to reconsider his conviction that love is destined to remain an aethereal ideal.

Review: Alec has had his heart broken and was going to take his life. However an angel stopped him. He is an amazing sculptor and creates an ornament in the shape of the angel. He had given it to the man he had loved, but the asshat threw it in the lake. A sweet man found it and located him down to give it back. But it is not the last time.

John finds the beautiful angel and returns it, twice. He can’t get his mind off it nor off the sculptor. He then decides to show the sweet man how he feels. A courting we will go.

I really need to pay attention to certain descriptions of books. I don’t care for historicals no matter how cute they can be. I just can’t keep my mind on a story that has history older than me. However Eli has a gift at telling a story of that time. She nailed it pretty good. The name for what John does, which I just call a beat cop, is actually pretty cool. The guys are more like the ones that you would meet in those times. The part I didn’t get was how you greeted each other, would have driven me nuts.

The story is well told and the characters were quite charming. I even liked the secondary characters. I found the story entertaining and quite interesting in a way. It is a really sweet Christmas story. However I really was not a fan of it and it was just not my cup of tea.

Blurb: The year is 1969…

Gary Fairchild is proud to be a hippie college student, and he protests the Vietnam War because he believes in love and peace. To him, it isn’t just a counterculture movement—it’s a way of life. When tickets to the Aquarium Exposition—3 Days of Peace & Music, or Woodstock, as it was better known, go on sale, there’s no way he isn’t going.

Richard Ronsman is a sheltered farm boy who lives in the shadow of his overbearing father. He’s hidden his darkest secret to earn his father’s love, but nothing is ever good enough—not even volunteering for the Vietnam War. And with just a few days left before he’s deployed, a striking hippie invites him to join them at a music festival.

Three days of music, drugs, rain, mud, and love forged a bond between these two very different men that would shape the rest of their lives. They share dreams and fears, and when Richard is shipped off to war, they share letters and love. For Richard’s first Christmas home, he is gifted a special angel ornament that just might make a soldier’s wish come true.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Three days is all it takes to find love. A young man who believes only in peace and love, and a man who will do anything to get his families approval. Richard is a naive young man who has spent his whole life on a farm. Nothing he does will ever get his fathers love, but he does the one thing he thinks will get it. He joins the Vietnam war as a volunteer. He decides to take a invitation up and goes to Woodstock, with Gary.

Gary does not believe in the war. He just believes in his heart. He invites Richard to spend three days at Woodstock with him and to enjoy. They make a promise a to always stay in touch. This is a magical time for both men and in a time where it is really dangerous.

This story is told in a weird way. It goes from the moment they meet to eght years later. You go from Woodstock all the way to San Fransico. A young man forced to join a war he didn’t want to be in just to please his family and comes back broken in more ways then one. So this story is full of pain and angst, but does have its happy parts as well. It is a well told story that will have you in tears and have you smiling as well. They make a Christmas wish that an angel brings true. It is a sweet Christmas story that will make your heart swell with the best of them.

Now to the down side to the story. It didn’t really catch my attention like it should have nor did it keep it. I don’t really care for stories that are not in the future so to speak. It doesn’t really do anything for me and wasn’t really my cup of tea. That is not saying it isn’t a good book, but it just wasn’t for me.

Blurb: Pax Polo is the swashbuckling guitarist for Serenity Free.

Correction: Was the swashbuckling guitarist for Serenity Free.

Now he sports a black eye and his bros have kicked him out of their band—three weeks before Christmas. It’s an unfamiliar kick to his over-inflated ego, but . . . whatever.

No problem.

Thanks to some stellar eavesdropping, an unexpected angel ornament, and a bribe to open for his favorite band ever, Pax will weasel his way back into his mates’ good graces.

All he has to do is friend Clifford, the neighborhood man-shrew, for the summer. Distract him a bit so Clifford’s younger sister can sneak around.

It sounds like a piece of beginners Beethoven. Jolly good fun.

Easy.

Because, Pax totally knows how to friend people. He has heaps of friends. This shrew’s no match for his shrewd ways. Or is he?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Pax pretty much looses everything just right before Christmas, including the one job he loved. Playing the guitar is not really a job but an enjoyment I would say. He has to figure out how to get back in with his buddies. He is the ultimate medlor for one and he has a plan. He just hadn’t planned on Clifford.

Clifford has his own problems. Two that have their eyes on his sister, not going to happen. Where as Pax is trouble and kind of a mess, Cliff it the exact opposite. He is a bit grumpy and well you will see. Now Pax has his eye on Luca getting Cliff’s sister, however Henry would get Pax what he wants.

What is Christmas without a bit of magic, a boring Christmas is what I would say. However not so with this story. Although the first half of the story, I wasn’t really seeing to much of a romance between our two guys. The pace to this story was a too slow in my eyes and didn’t really keep my attention like it should have. However the romance was just a bit slower than that. It made the book feel much longer than it was. I am afraid that my attention wavered quite a bit and didn’t entertain me like I had hoped. Now after the first half, the heat between the two did get intense. The angst that Cliff had when he found out the reason for Pax’s attention was a bit more expected but then again what does one expect. If I had to pick my favorite character in this story, I would probably pick Cliff. He is a grumpy young man who has had a sad past. He just pulls you in a bit more than Pax. Pax just could piss a saint off. He is very quirky. Although I didn’t much care for tricking one so that the guys could get to know an underage girl was a good sign. Also the bribe was a bit much. So there were parts I liked and parts that I could have done without.

Overall I would say it is an enjoyable read but I find that I didn’t really care for it. The author does have an amazing gift at telling a story. However it felt like things were added in that could have been done without. It didn’t really have that much of a Christmas element to it, except for the magical ornament or what ever it was suppose to be. I also didn’t care for the Shakespeare theme that I felt was going on.

Blurb: Kaiyo’s bloodline has been part of the Garrow pack for generations. He has been destined to be shaman, to anchor the werewolves to the land, and lend aid with the force of his Ousía. When Kaiyo is fourteen, however, an attacking group kills all of the adults in the pack, leaving young Ahmik, only fifteen, as leader.

Their worries don’t end there.

Smelling blood in the water, enemies hunt the decimated pack from all sides. Kaiyo grows increasingly reckless in his desperation to defend his pack, to finally grow into his shaman powers, and to protect Ahmik: the boy he loves.

In the end, Kaiyo loses his pack anyway.

Packless, landless, Kaiyo drifts. For ten years, he fights to remake himself into the shaman, and the man, he was meant to become. One phone call from his old pack, though, and he is forced to return.

Something is killing children and Kaiyo is the only one strong enough to stop it.

Kaiyo never thought his journey would take him back to his old land, his old pack, and to Ahmik. Forced to face his past, and the wounded love that still aches for Ahmik, Kaiyo will be tested like never before.

Content Warning: This story contains themes of depression and associated thoughts and behaviours. However, as always, it focuses on recovery and strength.

This book takes place in the Natural Magic world but can be read as a standalone.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This story is about Kaiyo and Ahmik but from Kaiyo’s POV. It’s an emotional, telling story of suffering, loss, tragedy, struggles and love. Kaiyo and Ahmik suffer unimaginable loss at the beginning. This sets in motion Kaiyo’s journey in helping others and accomplishing his goal in becoming a shaman of the pack.

I loved the journey and the details. Though I understood Ahmik’s reason for doing what he did I would have liked his POV as well to better to understand him and where he was coming from. The characters from the first book do not make an appearance in this installment which was a pity.

I loved how Kaiyo reconnected with the pack after being gone so long then called back to help with a mystery and not being able to leave for year. It made my heart happy after all the depression scenes and therapy sessions in the book.

This story was an emotional roller coaster. Good read.

Blurb: As former NSA, Dayton “Day” Ingram has national security chops and now works as a technical analyst for Scorpion. He longs for fieldwork and scuttling an attack gives him his chance. He’s smart, multilingual, and a technological wizard. But his opportunity comes with a hitch. His partner, Knighton, “Knight”, is a real mystery. Despite countless hours of research, Day can find nothing on the agent including his first name.

A former Marine, Knight crawled into a bottle after losing his family. After drying out, he’s offered one last chance: along with Day, to stop a terrorist threat from the Yucatan. To get there without drawing suspicion, Day and Knight board a gay cruise, where the deeply closeted Day and equally closeted Knight must pose as a couple. Tensions run high as Knight communicates very little, and Day bristles at Knight’s heavy-handed need for control.

But after drinking too much, Day and Knight wake up in bed together. As they near their destination, they must infiltrate the terrorist camp and neutralize a plot aimed at America’s technological infrastructure. If they hope to have a life after the mission, one that might include each other, they must learn to trust and rely on each other.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: I just recently discovered that Dirk Greyson is the pen name for Andrew Grey, and as I’ve discovered these are mostly intrigue, mystery or suspense type of books. So naturally, being that I love reading everything by Andrew Grey, I just have to give Dirk Greyson a go as well.

I do like a good suspense, but I have to admit that my only reservations for this book is the fact that it looks like an ongoing saga between the two. I’m not normally one for big epic sagas in my MM romances – I usually save that for my science-fiction and historical fantasies.

Nonetheless, this was a enjoyable book, although I feel that this is one of the types of books that I wouldn’t enjoy much reading as I did enjoy the audio narration. Andrew McFerrin is a wonderful narrator, and his tone and pace were absolutely on point for this.

The story is set in a spy agency called Scorpion, where Dayton Ingram, aka Day, wants nothing more than a chance to prove himself as a field agent. As it is he is a wicked technical analyst. Finally his chance has come and he is teamed up with Knighton, aka Knight. Knight is a true mystery, he was a former marine who subsequently became an alcoholic after the death of his family. Now that he has managed to become sober his boss has offered Knight one more chance to hold himself together in the field and get his job done. The problem is that Knight is not so good at communication, which frustrates Day to no end.

The two men are working a terrorist case in the Yucatan. They go undercover as a couple on a gay cruise. Which is all well good except for the fact they are both so deep in the closet that they are probably closer to Narnia than they are to accepting their individual sexualities.

The set up is good and the two have a complex chemistry. I’m not sure if you could call it a love hate type of thing, so I’m just going to stick to this being a complex relationship. And this is why the story is ongoing – Knight in particular has some pretty major demons to face. In fact, it’s not a stretch to begin to think that perhaps a relationship with Day is not the best thing for Knight now. However, despite falling into bed with each other, they need solve their case.

You need to be a fan of suspense or mystery to really like this story. The romance, such as it is, take more of a back seat to the constant battling of personal demons and terrorism. This isn’t a fairytale ending by any means, and I’m moving onto book 2 next to see what happens to Day and Knight. Both guys are likable, but at the same time they both need to work on their communication. The sexual chemistry and the suspense created by the terrorism plot line makes this an enjoyable read.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Elizabeth Noble is relatively new author to me, I think other than listening to the audio for this book some couple months ago, I’m not aware of any other of the author’s works. At least on the Dreamspinner Press website there are only three works available and one of them won’t be out until December. Regardless, first off I’m going to say that this is one of those books which I found more enjoyable as an ebook as opposed to listening to the audio. I can’t put a finger on the reason why, but there you have it.

Admittedly, the plot rather simple and predictable. It’s one of those types of books that I recommend for people who want something easy and relaxing but don’t expect too much in terms of literary excellence. It’s a great book to just relax and escape with. I read a very intense book last night which I absolutely adored, even though the emotions were high I found this to be the perfect come down book after that experience.

High Test is a Cinderella – Cinderfella? – tale. Hayden Owens is struggling to get himself through college where he is a graduate student trying to complete his PhD. All he wants to do is graduate and design cars that are engineering works of art. When he is forced to attend college function, schmoozing with movers and shakers ready to donate Hayden meeting Neal Kirchner. Neal is older than Hayden but their connection is instant. When Hayden leaves at the end of the night so that he can get the last bus, he realizes too late that he forgot to get Neal’s number. This first night was the start of confusion that Hayden finds too hard to get the courage to admit to Neal that he doesn’t come from a rich family. This is the main plot of the book and while there is some angst and drama, it’s a mild and simple book.

As a side note one thing that I really liked here was that Hayden was a PhD candidate (only directly referenced once or twice) and despite this his intelligence was put right to the background of the whole story. From experience, I know that we do tend to be completely obsessed with our work, but the whole antisocial nerd is a tired stereotype. The other thing that I really liked that while this would be classed as a May-December plot, the whole age difference is only referred to a couple times. I also find the whole age gap thing a bit tiresome, especially when a big is made about age gaps few than ten years. Admittedly this is a larger age gap, but I was all for the romance.

This is a simple, fun and sweet romance, as I said before, it’s a bit of a Cinderella story and if that’s your thing, go for it.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I wanted to love this book but for all the needless sex scenes regarding Kit needing semen I would have. There were too many sex scenes for my tastes. But Logan and Halor were interesting in the grand scheme of things. I loved the way these men made plan and set them in motion to save Logan and the people he feels responsible for.

I wished there more about Kit besides his sexual needs. I would have loved to know more about him as the story progressed. I did however enjoy the actual story and how the rescue plans were made and set in motion.

This is a story I would have normally fell into and enjoyed but the overabundance of sex and the lack of details regarding Kit threw me out of the story. It made it difficult to reconnect with the characters near the end.

O.k. read for me.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Eternal Flame collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is connected to Eternal Flames: Maddox and the Kaliss series.

Shadow has spent most of his time in the military, not only the present one either. For over a hundred years or more, he has served in one place or another. He had been almost killed by his father when he was found with another man, then the ones who took him in told him it was time for him to leave. He had been abandoned so many times he lost count. His soul was darkened by what he had done even if it was for the good guys. Then he found a new family in a goup of men he served with until someone set out to kill them. So when he finds his mate, he does the one thing to protect his heart, he runs.

Deja was two years old when a band of gypsies found him and took him in. His brothers might not be of blood but they were still his brothers. One of his brothers was injured and he just wanted to help him, so he did what he was good at, he sang to him. Then he saw a man staring at him, and somehow knew this man was his. You see Shadow is a panther shifter and Deja is human, or so he thinks. Poor guy is in for more shocks real soon.

Someone is out to get Deja and you know what a fierce panther can do to prey, just wait and see. We don’t really see these two together much in the book till later on, and somehow the authors just work it right. This is one of those books that will be read more than once or even a dozen times. It captivated me from the get go and lets just say I have just finished reading it for the second time. It doesn’t really pull at me as some of the others in this series does, but it still gives me an excellent read. It gave me everything I could ask for in a story such as excitement, action, danger and some hot sexy times.

I absolutely loved this book and can not wait to get my hands on the next story. I would definitely recommend this book as well as the ones that are connected to it. Trust me you will fall in love with them as I did.

Review: Sky is my favorite character in the series. He is opinionated, snarky and all around sarcastic. When Hardy and Sky come to a head in an argument the goddess Selene has had enough of the bickering and sends the three mates away from the others with none of their shifter abilities.

I found it intriguing that Emry and Hardy had to learn to rely on their human selfs instead of relying on their abilities to help. Sky was used to this already. The surprise visitor and his revelations took me by surprise.

Intriguing read and a great addition to the series.

Highly recommended.
