Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Unexpected collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

I am afraid to say that the cover of this book was very daunting and drab looking to me, so I wasn’t as inspired to read this story, plus the title was just off. I had read the second book in this series and had wanted to know what happened to the baby.

This story has a dark tone to it that I really didn’t care for at all. Also the characters were not a full filling to me as they should have been. The story did have some great spots and a lot of potential to it.

Gerome is not a favorite of mine although I do feel for him. His unborn’s father is in love with Sam, his unborn child is in danger, and his father is forcing him to marry. Not something he wanted so Gerome takes it out on the stranger he is forced to mate with. He wanted love and that was what saved him with me. He has the same dream that many have but instead of going forward with Luis, he treats him like crap. However Luis isn’t going to take it.

Luis was a happy student who was carefree and loving life. That is until he is forced to mate the vampire prince. Gerome wants his complete submission and has another thing coming. However Luis withdraws so much that he is no longer who he used to be. It takes a friend to step in and help these two.

This story turned out better than I had thought but it was missing something to make it what it should have been. Like I said before I didn’t care for the cover of the book or the title, but once you start reading you kind of lose your temper with this family.

The king is an ass and so are the rules. I think that had these two met without being forced then they might have found their ending a bit sooner. I didn’t have as much fun reading this book as I should have though and I was a bit disappointed in it. And that is only because of the dark tone to it, other than that it is well written with just a few issues with it.

Other than my issues with this book, it is a very good story that I would recommend.

Saving Alex: Not only is Alex pregnant, something punishable by jail time, but Gerome, the father of the baby, is a vampire prince. When strangers invade Alex’s home and kidnap him, he doesn’t know who is responsible, if he’ll ever see the man he loves again, or even get to see the child growing inside him.

Considering himself the father of his lover’s child, Sam has a hard time standing around and letting others plan Alex’s rescue. But when the Prince and his trackers find an important clue, the race to save his beloved is on. Now all he can do is cross his fingers that the scheme they’ve devised will work.

When Prince Gerome receives ransom demands, the instructions are clear: mate a complete stranger or he’ll never see Alex or the child he carries again. Will he be able to convince his newly intended to help, or will those seeking to dethrone his family win this evil game of blackmail?

Caution: Contains a kidnapping, unwanted matings, a scheming king, way too many people that follow their own plans and a highly pregnant Alex

Reviewer: Prime

Review: This is a delightfully short novella is the first book in Chris McHart’s Love in Germany series. It also happens to be a hot BDSM-themed Christmas story. Note: since this book was released eight months ago, I looked up and could not find out any more on this series although the author has various works in progress.

The story is told from the POV of Ryan. He is sent to Germany to work and while there falls in love with Julian, who meets at a market. The attraction is instant and it’s hot. Julian also happens to be a Dom, and Ryan is more than willing to be his sub.

Both characters are likable and it’s difficult not to feel Ryan’s highs and lows between meeting Julian and then having to return to the states. I feel that we’ve only just got a small taste of the passion that these two characters are capable of. At first Julian is so unassuming that I was finding it difficult to see him as a Dom, but he just fits the role perfectly.

It doesn’t have to be Christmas to enjoy reading this one. It’s hot and it’s a bit of fun too. If you like your BDSM, you’ll like it. But the characters are so damn relatable and I think it’s because they start off quite ordinary and unassuming.

Blurb: Dean believes love is never wrong, but is that still true if there’s a twenty-one year age gap?

Jeff was raised to believe love between two men is wrong. Or is it? Can love ever be wrong? When Jeff meets the much younger Dean, he only knows he wants him, consequences be damned. But things are not as easy, especially after Jeff’s ex calls and announces big news.

And Dean? He thinks the new neighbor is hot, but he’s not interested in anything more than a rebound fuck. That’s what he tells himself, at least. But lust isn’t a good basis for a relationship, more so since Jeff isn’t sure whether he can deal with being gay.

Love is never wrong, but can Jeff accept that?

Reviewer: Cat

Review:  Never Wrong is a sweet romance about two men just getting out of a relationship. Dean caught his boyfriend in the act of cheating. He moved into a new apartment building to begin a new life.

Jeff left his girlfriend of 11 years because though he loved her, both were unhappy and he needed space to explore his feelings.

The moment Dean met Jeff he wanted him but thought he just wanted a rebound roll in the hay.

Jeff was really struggling with some hidden feelings but as much as he wanted Dean he had issues with the 20 year age gap.

This is a very sweet story. It started out little slow for me but towards the end picked up. There was actually a very memorable scene with Dean cooking for Jeff that had me rolling in the floor laughing. I totally fell in love with Dean. T

hough Jeff is more my kind of man…Dean won my heart. He is young, sweet, naïve, charming and all over a nice man. His personality really shown through the story. On the other hand. I liked Jeff but would have liked more from him.

The story line is good but a typical romance. There is a small twist that I did like the way that was handled.

So all in all this is a good Feel-good short story. If like a good sweet romance with a little twist, two broken men, friends to lovers and older man-younger man this is definitely for you.
