Blurb: —. You can’t hide the cracks under the spotlight .—

Dusk. Leader of The Underdogs. Destined for greatness. Lives in the now.
Abe. AKA Lolly. Iridescent. Unicorn.

All Dusk wants out of life is for his band to become world famous. He also wants to have a lot of fun along the way. And to get his rocks off. When he wants something, he goes for it, consequences be damned.

So when he sees a gorgeous pink-haired guy who is the human equivalent of tattooed cotton candy, he can’t help but have a taste. But it’s when Lolly ends up on their tour bus that Dusk knows their meeting was destiny.

Abe is the kind of guy who goes with the flow. He was hitchhiking anyway, so why not spend the week with a hot piece of rocker beefcake, getting smothered by his sexy long hair? And why not play the part of the supportive cutie while he’s at it? It’s not like he’d be sticking around for long anyway.

All plans hit a wall when photos of Abe and Dusk emerge online, suddenly pushing the band into the spotlight. To take advantage of the sudden popularity, the band offers Abe money for staying.

Which means money for being in a fake relationship with Dusk.

Which isn’t even fake.

Or is it?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Man see’s boy, man wants boy. Dusk is the leader of The Underdogs, an up and coming band. When he spots cute pink haired Lolly/Abe he knows he has to have him. From the moment they met unbeknownst to them it was destiny.

Amid the hot and sexy times between them their relationship deepens until a picture of the two surface for all to see. This causes a slight hiccup as Dusk is not out. I loved the way Dusk tried to set everything right after Abe is paid to be his pretend mate.

Feelings get hurt when Dusk messes everything up. But oh the make up was so sweet. I loved the chemistry between these two and the way they handled themselves.

Great read.

Bloodbath

(Guns N’ Boys 06)
by

K.A. Merikan

“I don’t even know who I am anymore.”

“All you need to know is that you’re mine.”

Seth would follow Domenico to the depths of hell. He promised to always be at Domenico’s side. But hell becomes all too real when they infiltrate the world of Toro – a notoriously security-obsessed arms dealer, who has eyes and ears everywhere.

Seth becomes unable to steal even a moment of intimacy with Domenico, and the tension grinds them down each day. Beyond the deceptive paradise of Toro’s villa, violence is an everyday occurrence, and the swimming pool could just as well be filled with blood. To survive, Seth has to become the man Domenico needs him to be, but in the process, he might lose who he truly is.

With Seth trained up, and Mark as backup, victory is so close Domenico can taste it. They just need to prove themselves to Toro as valuable assets. With each day though, Seth seems to be drifting away from Domenico, hidden behind a mask of cruelty and indifference. It is exactly what Domenico asked of him, so why is it so difficult to see Seth become his mirror image?

“How does one start a relationship with another man when it is forbidden?”
“One needs to decide that the other man is worth dying for.”

Cornwall, 1785

Sir Evan Penhart. Baronet. Highwayman. Scoundrel.

Julian Reece. Writer. Wastrel. Penniless.

No one forces Julian Reece to marry. Not his father, not his brother. No one.

When he is thrust into a carriage heading for London to meet his future bride, his way out comes in the form of an imposing highwayman, riding a horse as black as night. Julian makes a deal with the criminal, but what he doesn’t expect is that despite the title of baronet, the robber turns out to be no gentleman.

Sir Evan Penhart is pushed into crime out of desperation, but the pact with a pretty, young merchant’s son turns out to have disastrous consequences. Not only is Evan left broke, but worse yet, Julian opens up a Pandora’s box of passions that are dark, needy, and too wild to tame. With no way to lock them back in, rash decisions and greedy desire lead to a tide that wrecks everything in its way.

But Julian might actually like all the sinful, carnal passion unleashed on him. How can he admit this though, even to himself, when a taste of the forbidden fruit could have him end up with a noose around his neck? And with highway robbery being a hanging offense and the local constable on their back, Julian could lose Evan before he can decide anything about the nature of his desires.

by

— The lumberjack of his dreams is now available for rent. —

Mr. B has always been a safe guy for Jo to crush on. He’s the cutest bearded lumber-god to salivate over. Add to that his friendly, outgoing personality, and Mr. B might just be the first guy Jo would be willing to kiss. Fortunately, Mr. B has been in a relationship for years, and Jo is no home-wrecker.

But when Mr. B breaks up with his partner and all of a sudden is single, available, and talks about his plans to be sexually adventurous, Jo isn’t so sure anymore if he has the guts to come out as bisexual.

After a sour breakup, Mr. B wants to show his ex that he’s independent, exciting, and can do very well without him. His best friend Jo is there to the rescue, and they come up with a great new business venture. One thing they lack to start their own line of artisanal boozy jams – money for the investment.

After a drunken brainstorming session, Mr. B finds a way to both gather the cash and show the middle finger to his ex. He will create a one of a kind Hipster Brothel – The Lumbersexual Experience – offering wood chopping lessons, pipe smoking, and a reclaimed wood bed where the magic would happen. It’s bound to be a success… if only Mr. B can go through with it, because the mixed signals from Jo are making him wonder if his best friend is as straight as he always seemed.

Genre: Victorian, Historical, Fantasy

Length: Novel (590 pages)

Publisher: Acerbi & Villani Ltd. (November 21, 2016)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts (Combined)

Blurb: London

1907, twenty years into the zombie Plague

Reuben is a baker living in the slums of London, sharing a room with his father and an extended family of cockroaches. Poor, uneducated, and repressing all his sexual desires, he leads a life of misery, only sometimes sprinkled with gin and a rough tumble in a filthy back alley.

But when he is abducted into Bylondon to be the slave of a wealthy crime family member named Erik Dal, his values are put to the test. His new master is obsessed with all things equestrian, and Reuben soon learns that if he obeys and performs well as Erik’s horse, he might just get everything he yearns for: pampering, foods he never even dreamed of, and shameless sex with a demonically handsome young man in leather riding boots.

As Copper, Erik’s treasured dun stallion, Reuben must submit to his new master’s obscene fancy of possessing another man completely. That is, if he yearns for treats and not the lick of a riding crop. Fake tails, harnesses, and a new haircut to his ginger mane help Reuben transform into Copper, but the fear of losing his dignity in the eyes of society might just prove to be a bigger restraint than any bit, bridle, or handcuffs.

All that for the small price of his freedom. Though at times, Reuben feels it’s his soul that Erik is after instead.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Copper Horse: Fear ♥♥♥♥ 3.75 Hearts

I really did not know how to feel about this story of Reuben, a poor baker, who is taken advantage of by a manipulative man, Erik, who makes him his pet horse. This was serious business not just some role play scenario. I found myself angry on Reuben’s behalf and wondered what Erik’s problem was.

We see throughout Reuben’s introduction on being a pony with all that entails.

The Copper Horse: Pride ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Erik is fighting his feelings for Reuben as Reuben is trying to be better than he was in the first book. I felt that Erik was changing for the better. I liked him more in this book than I did in the previous story. The mens feelings for one another become more pronounced in this addition.

Jack’s Punishment ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Jack’s punishment for helping Copper try to escape is being sent to the kitchen in Mr. Fry’s hands. Unbeknownst to Jack Mr. Fry has wanted Jack since he saw him. Jack feels the same. 

It was a hot little read with plenty of steam. I really loved how these two seemed to melt the other.

The Copper Horse: Love ♥♥♥♥♥ 4 ½ Hearts

Erik is betrayed and so flees with Reuben to London. With both of their lives uprooted both do some heavy soul searching and come to terms with their new lives. Erik has to put his trust into people who are friends but is still leery of them and rightly so after what happened. Reuben is confronted with the fact that Erik lied to him.

Emotional yet engaging I truly liked this story. I really felt for these two men and felt their emotions throughout.

All in all it was an interesting boxed set although I did not read the m/f story.

London

1907, twenty years into the zombie plague

Just as Reuben finally settles into the role of Copper, his master’s proud stallion, his life gets turned upside down by a revolution that has been long brewing in London. But the men who come for Erik at his home bring much more than havoc. They uncover lies that Erik has fed Reuben, and the truth creates a rift between them that might be impossible to cross. 

Even if Reuben still wanted to be Erik’s pony, is it possible for them to be together if his master loses all power and property? With no harness to hold him, no bit to stop him from speaking, can Reuben still be what Erik wants? Does he have anything to offer as a man?

The relationship they have established gets shaken to its core, and on the run from Erik’s enemies, they will both have to find out if the bond they share will survive, or if it will break.

Guns n’ Boys series

by

K.A. Merikan

‘Guns n’ Boys’ is a twisted, dark erotic romance mixed with a crime thriller. It’s a long, turbulent journey of one couple deeply entrenched in the dealings of their mafia family. Behind the morbid humor and extreme violence hides the intense love affair of Domenico Acerbi, the mafia’s best hitman, and Seth Villani, the Don’s son.

Together, they have to deal with their blooming affection for each other, their family’s homophobia, their own prejudice, lust, jealousy, and violence. In true anti-hero fashion, they do so in most morally ambiguous ways.

After months of recovering from his injuries, Seth struggles with who he has become. Afloat in a reality he never planned, he tries to find the lost pieces of himself again. Find the purpose, motivation, and strength to get back into shape. He is sick and tired of being a burden for Domenico, who seems to have it all together.

When Domenico’s jealousy pushes them into the spotlight of a biker gang with connections to their former mafia family, Seth decides to step up, and make his own decisions, no matter what risks they might entail.

Domenico Acerbi can’t trust anyone. Nightmares of Seth’s torture are still haunting his dreams, and if he and Seth are to leave the country quietly and disappear off the mafia’s radar, he needs to stay in charge and keep everyone under control. What he doesn’t need is Seth giving him attitude, keeping secrets, and distancing himself for no reason. And as if Domenico didn’t have enough on his plate already, Seth forces him to help some hooker.

Being stuck in the swamp with a kid hunted by a bunch of bikers is not Domenico’s idea of lying low.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is the third book in the Guns n’ Boys series. Seth is recovering from his ordeal he went through in the last book. Dominique is still a badass with violent tendencies when the need arises. There is violence in this book so if you’re not interested in that I would advise you not to read this book.

There are some hot sex scenes throughout and I’m sure readers would love them but I still have mixed emotions about this series considering the main characters are related. I liked everything in this book except the intimacy between Seth and Dominique so I skipped those parts after reading the first scene.

All in all it was an o.k. read.

Blurb: — Love is sour like a Sicilian lemon. —

The Family is always right.

The Family doesn’t forget.

The Family pays for blood in blood.

Domenico Acerbi grew up in the shade of Sicilian lemon trees ready to give his life for the Family. Ready to follow orders and exceed expectations. A proud man of honor.
When Seth, the younger son of the Don is kidnapped, it’s Domenico who is sent to get him back. The man he finds though, is not the boy he knew all those years ago. Lazy, annoying, spoiled, and as hot as a Sicilian summer.
Seth Villani wants nothing to do with the mafia.

Unfortunately, he doesn’t get a say when the Family pulls him right back into its fold after his mother’s death. Thrown into a den of serpents otherwise known as the Villani Family, Seth has to find a way to navigate in the maze of lies. But when Domenico Acerbi, the most vicious snake of them all, sinks his fangs into Seth, the venom changes into an aphrodisiac that courses through Seth’s veins.

Domenico knows his life is about to change when he gets the order to train Seth up to the role of future Don. Seth isn’t made for it. He isn’t even made. But a man Domenico knows he would never have to fear might just be someone he’s always needed.

If Seth is doomed to follow in his father’s footsteps, he might as well enjoy himself—with the most intoxicating man, he’s ever met. Maybe he can even fool himself into believing that Domenico isn’t a handsome sociopath who kills for a living.

Review: I was excited to read this book after reading the blurb. Very well written, action packed in some scenes, and intense. After being kidnapped by the Chinese and tortured, Seth is traded for another man and taken home. While there, he learns that, he is to become the next Don.

After tailing Vera one time it seemed that page after page was nothing but Domenico trying teach Seth about being a don. I didn’t see it myself as I didn’t understand how raping(If someone says no and the other person keeps going that’s rape and there were rape scenes several times in this book) him several times, degrading him, continuously putting him down, mocking him and hitting Seth.

From what I could tell, Domenico was jealous of Seth as he felt he would’ve made a better don and it mentions that in the book and he abused the trust that was given to him to hurt Seth because of that. Domenico and Seth are actually half-brothers.

While this story was good, I had problems with some of the so-called intimate scenes. But the rest of the story is quite good. Full of action, drama, mystery, and intense fight scenes. I can’t wait to read what else happens in the next book considering Seth is ordered to marry a woman so that should be interesting to see if he follows through or if something else happens.

Good read.
