Adam Only

(Those Other 02)
by

Roe Horvat

On stage, Adam lets his passion drive him. All his secret desires, everything nasty, dirty, and beautiful flows freely through him, for once in harmony. His soul thrives when his body moves, but only on stage. Adam’s passionate nature makes him a great dancer…and a failure at life. He’s a lonely, emotional mess. Going home with a man far out of his reach is the last thing Adam should do. Christoffer represents everything Adam isn’t: strong, independent, educated, and rich. His kind eyes, at odds with his brutish form, make Adam’s knees and restraint buckle.

Once Christoffer sees Adam dancing, he’s lost. The young man is mesmerizing, otherworldly, and unpredictable. Whatever might happen between them, it will be transient, and Christoffer will most likely get hurt. The temptation is too great, however, and the sex explosive. He might as well enjoy every moment he’s given, even if it’s just one day, maybe two. If Christoffer treads carefully, Adam might stay until Monday.

Vanilla Clouds

Narrator: Vance Bastian
by

Roe Horvat

“I could spend days listening to you talk about chocolate.”

Sex and chocolate are the two pleasures Michal enjoys most in life.

His sex life has been nonexistent for some time, though. After a particularly bad hookup, he keeps mostly to himself. That leaves chocolate. Luckily, he works surrounded by the most delicious, extravagant produce in Gothenburg. Beside his job at the chocolaterie, his main source of excitement is his online friend, Magnus, whom he stubbornly refuses to meet in person.

A customer turns up at the chocolaterie one day – tall, shy, and charming. He could be just the right man. If Michal can step out of his overly safe shell, there might be not only chocolate, but sex, too. Maybe chocolate-flavored sex. And if he’s lucky, maybe even love.

Warning: This book contains explicit scenes, adult language, and obscene amounts of chocolate.

Legends, old as well as Urban, float around like the mist that hovers above the lake at break of dawn.

But they’re just stories, right?

Hayden Moore’s life was destroyed when his husband, Malcolm, was murdered. Giving up his job as an assistant district attorney in Boston, Hayden moved to the little burg of Maplewood to recover.

A new life.

A fresh start.

However, something underneath the water is stirring. Something rotten. A deadly secret wakes underneath the black waters of Lake Veronica so disturbing it haunts the nightmares of the local residents.

It’s coming closer…

ISBN: 978-1-78645-187-3

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Hayden has had his life uprooted in more ways then one. He was a up and coming prosecutor who worked to put the filth and evil away. He had fought the hard fight and it had cost him everything, including the love of his life. His husband had died that night and so did a part of Hayden. He quit his job after putting away the ones responsible for his husbands death. Then he went to a unique town that was beautiful as well as deadly. He had bought a home right near Lake Veronica but had not known of the past of how it had became that name. So many came to help in the fight, but one stood out among them all. A sexy young man named Tommy.

Tommy had spent his life as most teenagers did, getting into trouble. He finally left to join the military and decided his life was best lived alone. He had not expected to feel something for the man he helped with his house. Things heat up between them but so does the dreams. Paul came to figure out the tremors that seemed to be at center with the Lake. People around them were dying, drowning and it gets even more twisted. A father who hated and then died with grief in his heart, a young man murdered and the woman connected to them angry and full of hate. A demon arises from that hate and death soon follows.

When I was given this story it was among many of my holiday stories so you can imagine my surprise when this one was not one of those stories. I have not been a fan of horror stories whether in books or in movies. However this one just seems to pull you right in and keep you till the very end. It was very entertaining and I can imagine the nightmares will come after reading it. It definitely will do that to you. This author has one hell of a gift at telling stories.

I can not believe I am saying this but I had a blast reading this. I also noticed that it will continue in another story and I will be on the front line waiting for it. I was amazed at the heart ache, hate, love, and so much more that this story has going on in it. There is action, excitement, danger, death and horror all mixed in to one big story with much more.

I would definitely recommend reading this with a light on.

Heir of Lockeley

(Outlaw’s Legacy 01)
by

N.B. Dixon

Robin of Locksley is a rebel, more comfortable roaming Sherwood Forest with his longbow and courting the village girls than learning how to run a manor.

An innocent flirtation with a peasant girl soon lands Robin in trouble, and worse, he finds himself inexplicably attracted to Will Scathelock, his best friend since childhood. Robin must decide whether to follow the rules of society or his own conscience.

Meanwhile, his neighbour, Guy of Gisborne, is anxious to get his hands on the Locksley estate and he will do anything to make it happen – even murder.

Once in a Snowstorm by Ofelia Gränd

ofelia-grand-once-in-a-snowstorm-coverTitle: Once in a Snowstorm

Series:  Nortown 01

Author: Ofelia Gränd

Genre: Contemporary, Holidays and Celebrations

Length: Novella (102 pages)

Publisher: Beaten Track Publishing (December 8, 2015)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Blurb: Daring a snowstorm might not be the smartest thing Aiden has ever done, but he can’t stand being in his flat a moment longer. With only three days to Christmas, he doesn’t want to be alone. He wants a place to belong, wants people around him who won’t look down on him. He might not find all that at his mother’s place, but at least it’s better than being alone in the city. If he can make it there, that is.

Tristan is looking forward to a quiet night in front of the TV, but instead, he has to save an idiot in designer clothes from freezing to death in his forest. Tristan tries not to notice the man’s good looks, just like he has tried not to notice any man’s good looks for the last seven years. He knows where relationships go and is far better off living alone, with his dog, in his cabin.

Aiden is driving Tristan mad with his bratty comments and irresponsible ways, and Aiden is going crazy from Tristan’s judgmental attitude. Luckily, in a few days, the weather will clear up, and the two men won’t have to be together any longer. But will a few steamy nights with the grumpy lumberjack change Aiden’s mind about wanting to leave? And will Tristan still want to go back to his peaceful, predictable life without fear of getting his heart broken?

ISBN: 978 1 78645 006 7

Product Link: http://www.beatentrackpublishing.com/?n1=publications&id=192

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Tristan lives in the mountains with his faithful dog by his side. I do not want to call him a recluse but there is not really a lot of interactions with others as a result of where he lives. He seems content for the most part if not a bit lonely.

Aiden took a bit for me to warm up to as he seemed arrogant and that irritated me until I got to know him better. His mother and the way she is is the reason for Aiden’s arrogance. When Aiden sets out in the middle of a snowstorm and gets stranded Tristan rescues him.

These two do not immediately hit it off. With Aiden’s attitude it’s a wonder Tristan did not throw him back out. But alas as the story progressed the attraction between them proved much stronger. I liked the interactions between these two as it felt real to a degree.

Caught Inside

by

Jamie Deacon

Luke believes he has his life figured out…and then he meets Theo.

It should have been simple—a summer spent with his girlfriend Zara at her family’s holiday cottage in Cornwall. Seventeen-year-old Luke Savage jumps at the chance, envisioning endless hours of sunbathing on the private beach and riding the waves on his beloved surfboard. He isn’t interested in love. Though his rugged good looks and lazy charm mean he can have his pick of girls, he has no intention of falling for anyone.

Nothing prepares Luke for his reaction to Theo, the sensitive Oxford undergraduate who is Zara’s cousin and closest friend. All at once, he is plunged along a path of desire and discovery that has him questioning everything he thought he knew about himself. No one, especially Zara, must find out; what he and Theo have is too new, too fragile. But as the deceit spirals beyond their control, people are bound to get hurt, Luke most of all.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I have read many books over the years some good and some bad, but very rarely have I came across a book that is very emotional and heart-felt. This author is new to me so I was a bit leery of reading this story. At the time I had not known that there was even a first book before this. I had only seen the title so totally skipped the first story which I will definitely have to fix.

Every once in a blue mile do you come across a book that you wish that you could rate higher than what is available but this is one of those stories. The world that was created was not only loving but very tempting. Although I must admit I wasn’t sure about the beginning and I can honestly say that I hated the ending but not for the reason one would expect.

Jonathan had sixty years with the man he loved. He knew that he would never have another and didn’t really want to go forward in his life. He had made a promise to Dan, to continue to live. To learn to love once more. Dan had been in love once more and Sean had died before his time. It was time for Dan to join Sean and for Jonathan to continue to love once more.

Parker had been afraid to introduce the man he loved to his family. Cody was born blind and he was black, but that was not why he was afraid. He was afraid of his family not loving him once more. With Parker and Cody moving in with Jonathan it teaches them that love will keep strong. Jonathan was to keep his promise to Dan and he had to see that there was still time for more happiness.

This story has its ups and its downs but you can see that their love is complete. When Cody had his accident I thought for sure that it was going to go downhill for them all. As for Marc, he was a miracle worker that showed Jonathan that it was possible. You will meet many wonderful people in this story and I can tell you that it is like you are right there with them. You are celebrating with them, you are scared with them and you are in pain with them, but you will also see that there is life after all.

You will need a box of Kleenex’s to read this book because it will have your heart breaking and tears in your eyes.

I will have to read the first book because after reading this I want to know about Jonathan’s life with Dan. However I am not sure if I truly want to read the next book, because I do not want to cry over these guys. They were perfect and I absolutely loved them. This author has an amazing gift and I am grateful to have had a chance to read this story.

It was amazing and I would definitely recommend it.

(Seeds of Tyrone 02)
by

Raine O’Tierney & Debbie McGowan

Mistakes were made, that’s for sure. But was it the night of passion? Or walking away afterward?

That’s the question Seamus Williams must face when he gets a late night phone call from someone he never expects to hear from again.

“I miss you, Shay.”

Chancey Bo Clearwater is a cowboy through and through. He spends his days finding work on whatever ranch will take him and his nights at the pool hall. He’s always done what needed doing and never thought much about what he wanted. ’Til that drunken night with Seamus.

A world of problems now stand between Seamus and Chancey exploring what might have been, the least of which being the Atlantic Ocean. On one side there’s Chancey’s daughter who mood swings from angel to demon in two seconds flat; on the other there’s the new lodger, hogging Shay’s telly and his cornflakes, and making private Skype time hard to come by. 

Is this relationship doomed before it ever begins? Or can a surprise announcement from Seamus’s brother be enough to help the two find their second chance?

Where the Grass is Greener features Seamus Williams – the older brother of Patrick from Leaving Flowers.

Vampire Rising

It’s the mid twenty-first century. Anti-Semitism, racism, sexism and homophobia have been consigned to the dustbin of history. The world is run by “the state,” and Christian zealots, whose chief governing tools are fear and oppression. It’s a wonderful time to be alive—unless you’re a Vampire. Vampires are despised, and feared, and subjected to discrimination and unspeakable violence.

Considered undead, unholy, without basic human rights, Gatsby Calloway lives on the fringes of society, avoiding humanity. Until he meets Barnabas, a young encaustic painter.

When Barnabas is mortally wounded during an anti-Vampire attack, Gatsby must forget everything he has known, and learn to trust.

His twin—Aidan’s other half, Nadia—died tragically young, leaving him with nothing to get him through his days but his job at the prestigious Grand Heights Luxury Apartments and the flowers he lays upon her grave. When Aidan is assaulted on the job by a tenant, it’s the graveyard he turns to for strength and solace.

Patrick loves being assistant groundskeeper at the sprawling cemetery where he tends graves and offers a bit of comfort to mourners. When he sees a sad young man lingering over an old grave, his curiosity is strangely piqued for reasons he doesn’t understand. He’s never done this—struck up a friendship with a mourner. But soon that friendship blossoms into a romance.

It’s not going to be easy for the pair. Aidan is so damaged, like petals crushed in an angry fist, and even with Patrick’s warm heart and Irish charm, it might not be enough to bring him back from the edge.

Review: Even though this is marketed as a standalone holiday sequel to Checking Him Out, it would probably be best to read book one. The background in the first book really does help explain Adam’s behaviour while he is sick in this one.

This is a quite charming story of a couple trying to get their separate beliefs together for the holiday seas. Sol is Jewish and Adam is Christian. They’ve been together for a while now, they’re also married and life is good since they have relocated to England.

We also learn a lot more about their families, particularly Adam’s brother Noah and friend/ex-boyfriend Matty. In fact, Matty is a sweetheart and I want to hug him and make it all better. Actually, I wouldn’t mind learning more about Noah and Matty.

I think this book actually makes me think on Checking Him Out in a much better light. This one has a fairly simple plot and a few sick family members (and a bitchy move from Sol’s sister). It’s easy enough to enjoy and easy enough to understand the insanity of families.

Blurb: Simon hates the Holidays. It’s the same every year – awaiting the dreaded Christmas Eve, when his father gets drunk, while the family fake Christmas spirit and strain to hear the TV over Dad’s snoring. This year, Simon’s sister is celebrating Christmas elsewhere, leaving him to deal with their parents on his own.

But there’s a glimmer of hope.

A work colleague introduces Simon to her son Hannes at the Lucia Day celebrations, the trouble being that Simon mistakenly believes it’s a blind date, and as if that isn’t embarrassing enough, Hannes wants them to be friends, and Simon’s starting to see signals that aren’t there. He’s beginning to wonder if he’ll make it through Christmas with his sanity intact.

5 of hearts logo red on black smallReview: Reading this book sparked memories of going to a church masses and being in Catholic primary and high school productions as either actor or musician. This is all about family and love and just general celebration, it’s difficult not to like this short story because again, this makes me think of my family at Christmas and Easter. Even if Simon’s family is nothing like mine.

This is certainly a different type of Christmas story: it is set around Santa Lucia and Christmas in Sweden. There is no one feeling lonely amongst their hordes of relatives and presents and happiness.
Instead, Simon isn’t particularly happy when it comes to his parents and really has an intense dislike for Christmas since he’s never had a happy Christmas. He lives in his small hometown, with an average job and everyone knows everyone else’s secrets. Simon is introduced to Hannes, by Hannes’s mother who Simon happens to work with.

Both Simon and Hannes are adorable and sweet. Hannes seems to have something Simon needs and vice versa, they just need to get their act together.

This isn’t a rushed insta-love, but a subtle story that just happens to coincide with Christmas.

Blurb: For many years, Ade Simmons has been an outsider, trapped in an abusive relationship, seeking sanctuary in his job as a radio producer, and in the checklists he makes in an attempt to regain control of his sorry excuse of a life.

Actor Kris Johansson is patient, gentle and passionate – everything that Ade’s ex-boyfriend is not. When Kris takes a role in one of Ade’s plays, the attraction is mutual and instant. It is the turning point for Ade. Either he can stay on the same path, with Fergus – the bully, who has repressed, used and isolated him from his friends and family – or he can look in the other direction, towards Kris – the handsome actor with family and friends who readily accept him.

But, Fergus will not give up his punching bag so easily – can Ade finally find the strength to fight back?

Review: Crying in the Rain is the first book I’ve read by Debbie McGowan. This is one of those books that are both sweet between the MCs, but intense when it comes to their lives and the drama. It’s also one of those books that left me thinking about the characters after finishing the novel.

This story focuses on character’s Ade, a radio producer who is experiencing problems with his abusive ex, and Kris, an actor who is everything that is kind and compassionate and has an amazing array of friends. Another theme of this book is that of healing and coming to terms. Interestingly, what I really enjoyed was that despite his initial appearance of carefree and happy, there is also something that Kris needs to heal about, which is obviously completely aside from Ade’s issues with his ex, Fergus.

When Kris works on a radio play that Ade is producing the two become friends, and to some extent confidants. It’s clear that they both want more to happen, too, and slowly we see their relationship evolve. The emotions had me tossing back and forth between sadness, anger, happiness and laughter. I also liked the fact that Kris was more complicated than he initially appeared and was really interesting.

A secondary character that was by far my favourite was Shaunna, Kris’s ex-wife but the two are also best friends. They’ve been through a lot together and are each other’s confidants. They have a lovely relationship and I laughed when she became cheer squad for Kris and Ade’s fledgling relationship. There are a number of other minor characters who are more than interesting, including two of Ade’s more elderly neighbours and a friend that is trying to help him get Fergus out of his life.

This leads me to Fergus, throughout the book he is portrayed as a typical abusive villain that as readers, we encounter in countless books. I really enjoyed the epilogue for this book because here, we are presented with very much the typical solution to such a destructive and abusive character, except there is a twist and it makes it so much better. We are given a more tragic figure that actually had me feeling empathy for the man; especially after all he had done to Ade.

If it was written in the usual way and had an epilogue, I think I would have felt cheated out of words for Ade and Kris’s story. On the other hand, like many stories, this ending could have been a footnote. I can’t say too much, obviously, but all you need to know is that it is a great twist on something we’ve seen many times (actually, I think I’ve complained ever so slightly about an almost identical solution in another book recently).

All I can say is this a fantastic book. Read it and I hope you enjoy it! The characters and the plot are all great and interesting.
