Blurb: Keith Kelley doesn’t normally take kindly to strangers, but his flashy new neighbor has long legs, lips made for kissing and might prove too much temptation for a boy hiding his sexuality in rural Idaho. Unfortunately, between working his mom’s goat ranch and land disputes with his wealthy father, Keith has enough problems. He doesn’t need the best sex of his life threatening to expose his precarious secrets.

Real estate developer Max Levin vows to turn the one-stoplight town of Pookataw Valley into a quaint vacation destination…and then leave before the dust clears. Given his next assignment starts in five months, Max shouldn’t start loving the quaint little town—the ranchland, the mountains, even the goats. If only Max could stop thinking about his sexy neighbor and the time they shared in the front seat of Keith’s truck. Because he especially shouldn’t fall in love with a guy who can’t openly love him back.

In a town the size of Pookataw Valley, nothing stays secret for long. If Keith wants to hold onto his birthright, he’ll have to fight for his land and his pride. Most of all, he’ll have to fight for Max before he slips through Keith’s fingers.

Warning: contains angry parents, horny ranchers and snarky city boys just asking to be hogtied.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: This was a fun and enjoyable book. The title was what first drew me in and luckily for us readers the title is exactly what we get.

We first meet the city slicker, Max, in dire straits on the side of the road when country boy/goat rancher (seriously, I would just call it a farm, but whatever), Keith, pulls over to help the obviously stranded stranger. Max has arrived in Pookataw Valley to oversee the redevelopment of a site for his boss. It’s never explicitly said, but it’s safe to say that Keith’s boss is also a good friend.

This is exactly the type of book that I love. Okay, I will admit, it’s all a bit stereotypical. Small town where everyone knows your name and the gay local(s) are all in the closet. Then enters the out of the closet out-of-towner to stir the pot and shake things up a bit. However, the characters are all for the most part engrossing and relatable although there is no hard-hitting emotion in this story. The only thing that disappointed me somewhat was that the story seemed to lag for about the third quarter of the book.

Still, if you like your country meets city, you like a somewhat naive but knowledgeable rancher (albeit a goat rancher) and a restless city boy then this story is a bit of fun to pass the time.

Blurb: Sometimes a guy’s best angle is below the belt.

When David, a single father, vows to get laid just once before the year ends, he doesn’t figure on losing his cell phone—and with it one very revealing picture. Lucky for him, his phone is found by a disarmingly handsome man who might be perfect for the kind of casual Christmas fling David is after.

Go-go dancer Craig never would have guessed that the guy with the cute cock shot would turn out to be a doctor. Or that he’d find himself lying about his night job and worrying David will find out the truth. To complicate matters, each of their hook-ups requires days of planning. Yet before he knows it, Craig has a new boyfriend, and possibly a whole new family.

David’s ready to dive head-first into something new, but if Craig’s going to commit, he’ll need to come clean about his job, his past, and—most of all—the naughty picture that drew him to David in the first place.

Warning: Contains a male exotic dancer and extremely intimate photography. May contain traces of Zumba, bad roommates, and sad childhoods. Call your doctor if after six hours you still can’t get the grin off your face.

Reviewer: Aerin

Review: David is a 30-year-old doctor who’s raising his 3-year-old daughter Maia by himself. He struggles to get back into the dating scene and his means to doing that will give you a good chuckle. He is just a normal guy who’s a little out of shape physically and he’s handsome but not stunning. According to Craig, he’s simply “nerdalicious.”

Craig is a hunky smokin’ hot go-go dancer and Zumba instructor. But that’s not all he is. He’s also a former foster child who has some self-esteem issues. He’s defensive and a little insecure because of his job, but he does it to pay for his masters degree studies. He likes David just the way he is and it’s obvious Craig’s character has depth, because for him, the type of person David is means a lot more than his physical appearance.

I’m a sucker for a story that includes a child and I was impressed that even though Maia is a very important part of David and Craig’s relationship, she didn’t take over the whole story. She is sweet and adorable and behaves exactly like a 3-year-old is supposed to behave.

This is a low angst story, there’s sweetness and tenderness, but make no mistake, the sex is hot and dirty and rough. I was surprised by David’s dirty side, I kept thinking to myself, “Well, Holy shit, Doc!!!”…

But the best part for me was the epilogue… forward 10 years, we get to briefly see their relationship is still strong, they’re still happy together and Maia is being the trouble making, foul-mouthed 13-year-old she’s supposed to be.

I recommend this to anyone who loves a low angst romance with awesome characters that will leave you feeling happy.

Blurb: Detective Joe Klamath is used to guys falling on their backs at the arch of his commanding eyebrow. Yet he can’t seem to get a read on a cute, department-store sales guy. The vagrant who just walked in, though? He’s easy to read. He’s dangerous.
Joe’s training kicks in, but as he wrestles the gun-wielding man, he gets shot.

Raised in a conservative Ethiopian community, Elias Abraham keeps his natural attraction to men under wraps. But Joe’s heroism moves him to care for the man who saved his life. After all, Joe is hurt. Chances are slim he’ll demand the types of things boys in college always wanted. Sex acts Elias wasn’t—and possibly never will be—ready for.

Gradually, Joe’s easy confidence softens Elias’s resistance. But as Joe’s healing progresses too slowly for a man of action, and trouble brews in Elias’s family, Elias begins to wonder if he can handle the pressure. Because though he hasn’t given all of his body, he’s already given all of his heart.

Review: This story caught me off guard. I wasn’t really expecting the way it turned out. I mean I knew that in the end Joe and Elias would end up together but how they got there was the surprise. Joe comes off as a jerk in parts of the story but then you realize that it might be a way to block what comes at him. He was supposed to go to his ex’s wedding, but he didn’t want to go looking like he was down. He was pissed at the way it came around but he didn’t want it to seem like he was hurting from it. So he decides to get dressed up for it, which meant he needed to go shopping.

What he had not expected when he went to the store was to find a very cute and tempting sales clerk. Elias was raised in a very conservative Ethiopian community were Elias could not tell anyone that he was gay. So he had always kept his attraction to men under wraps. Never dating or going out with other men as friends. His only relation living in America was his brother and his wife, but he was afraid of what they would say and do. He lived with them and knew that they would kick him out if they ever found out or worse he would be dead to them. That is at least what he expected from them.

What he had not expected was a very sexy detective looking for clothes or saving his life from a crazy vagrant carrying a gun. Joe had gotten hurt helping him, so it was up to him to help Joe heal. The problem was his feelings were messing with his head and somehow it was just very difficult to explain it to the hardheaded detective he was falling in love with. Joe didn’t understand why Elias hid it, but he would deal with it. The problem was Joe had a temper and being injured wasn’t making it easy to deal with.

I found myself getting caught in this story. It was fascinating and exciting, trying to figure out what they would do next. I love the fact that every time Elias shied away from Joe he could not think about him or want to see him. You can just feel the love that each man was feeling. It was like watching to bull’s charging at each other. They were passionate and full of fire, even if they start slow, because of Joe’s injury.
I would recommend this book to anyone who loves cops, tender-hearted men, excitement, a bit of danger and falling in love. This book has all of that and so much more that will drag you in. It caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end.

Blurb: They’re going to need a bigger tent.

Henri’s list of bad exes is as long as his arm, but nothing prepared him for his latest, heart-stomping breakup. He thought he couldn’t feel more abandoned, until his ride for a group camping trip bails, leaving him stuck driving for hours with a guy who is absolutely not his type.

After breaking up with his girlfriend of five years, firefighter Logan is working up the nerve to explore his interest in men. He knows he’s gay. He just hasn’t had the guts to do anything about it…until now.

Henri’s big-city attitude and tight jeans push every last one of Logan’s buttons, and when he and Henri have to share a tent, Logan is thrilled. He should have realized Pacific Northwest weather would get wet—forcing them to strip naked.

Though the steam between him is thicker than coastal fog, Henri’s not sure he can let himself fall for another man. Not even the guy who finally treats him right.

Product Warnings
Contains bad ex-boyfriends, even worse weather, and more than your average amount of sex in a tent. May not be suitable for those with germ phobias, outdoor aversions, or fear of damp shoes.

Review: This is part two in this series but you should start with book one. Although it can be read as a standalone book. It was a lot better than book one and I am glad for that. It was told with a bit of humor and seriousness to it. I am actually pleased with it. It still has a very small bit of homophobic people to it however. This one was more about a jerk of an ex who slept around on Henri.

He even told Henri that he had a STD that he shouldn’t worry about but maybe should get tested anyway.
Logan had broken up with his long time girl friend because he knew that what they were was wrong. He was completely gay and needed to live his life to the fullest. Now all he had to do is figure a way to meet men. He wasn’t old enough to go to the club’s so he was kind of clueless. However when his friend and coworker invited him to go camping, well what does a boy from Texas say but agree to go. It also might have something to do with the hottie that was friends with his coworker. And that said hottie was going camping also.

Henri almost bit his tongue off when he saw Logan, but he comes across as an ass to Logan. He is scared and you can tell it by the way he acts to Logan. And Logan takes some of it but mostly he is just as lost as ever. However, when these two get over whatever is their main issue things start to heat up.

This is a really cute story that you can love. You will love Logan and Henri. They come off as so true to the ones you would consider friends. I especially love Henri, he over comes his pain from a cheating ex, gets over his fear of a possible std, and falls head over heels for Logan and camping. Although you could give him some time, well a lot of time before trying it again.

I loved the humorous parts to it. I would recommend this story because Logan is one hell of a hot fireman and EMT. Henri is just as sexy as can be, their camping in Canada, running into freezing water butt naked and lots of good times.

Blurb: This is book three in the Ivory Towers series.

Shane’s first year out of college crushes his ego. When visiting Angel and the opportunity for a threesome arises, will it bring them closer or drive them apart?

Two months filming his first movie away from school have left Shane Roberts a changed man—humbled, conflicted, and more than anything scared that his boyfriend Angel won’t love him anymore once he finds out Shane’s weaknesses.

Excited as Angel is to have Shane home, Angel wonders why Shane feels like a stranger. He knows Shane has a wall up, but has no idea how to rip it down. When the opportunity arises to explore a ménage with an old friend of Shane’s, Angel is initially wary, but hopes that the experience will help jar him and Shane out of their funk.

If there’s one thing Shane is still confident about, it’s his abilities in the bedroom. So despite their high blood alcohol level and his niggling worry that sharing Angel with another man will ruin their relationship, Shane tries to give Angel the sexual experience of a lifetime.

But real world failures are tougher to handle than the silly hijinks Shane got up to in college. This time, the very thing Shane’s always relied on to hold Angel and Shane together backfires spectacularly. Shane fears he’s pushed Angel away right when he needs Angel the most.

If Shane wants to keep his boyfriend and save his relationship, he’ll have to admit he’s not the guy Angel thought he was. But maybe if Shane opens his heart, he’ll find Angel loves him not only for his successes, but also for the man he is inside.

Review: Shane is out of college and on his first job. Angel is still in school.  Both men feel tension when Shane comes home for a visit. Angel is afraid Shane will be leaving and not coming back and worries about their relationship. Shane is afraid Angel will be disappointed in him and want more since Shane is Angels first and Shane was a playboy before Angel.

At a dance one of Shane’s friends makes a suggestion he wouldn’t mind being a third and each man wonders if that’s what the other really wants.

I found this a very emotional, hot and sexy story. It delves deeply into the thoughts and hearts of both men. I found it beautifully written and the characters deep and interesting. I love the love, the darkness, the depth of emotions. I also think the story stands alone very well. I haven’t read the first two but by the time I finished this and the excerpt for book four, I found myself wanting them all, to see how they met and what happens next.

I highly recommend this if you like a loving, long-term relationship, cameras, college men and hot, sensual, mansex, mostly off page but hot still the same.

Blurb: Graduation looms for Angel’s lover Shane. Neither guy wants to
break up, but in a world of temptation, Shane will have to fight to make first love last.

Shane is graduating soon, and when he leaves, he’s going to tear out Angel’s heart. It’s been more than a year since Shane laid Angel over a desk and changed his life, but with the end of the school year approaching, Angel sweats over what will happen when Shane leaves. Shane says he loves Angel…but only when they’re naked and panting…

Preoccupied with finding a job, Shane doesn’t know what’s got Angel so stressed, but when he gets an opportunity to go to New York to make one of his movies, Shane realizes just how badly his leaving will hurt his boyfriend. He wants to stay together—Angel is the best damn thing in his life. Shane knows all about temptation, though, and about how even the best relationships fall apart.

Time and distance, temptations and fears…Love may not be enough to keep Angel and Shane together. But first love is stronger than either of them realizes. Will it be strong enough to turn the jaded Shane into a believer, and to keep them together despite the odds?

Product Link:

These books are best read in order, since they chronicle the evolution of one
couple through four years of college.

And Shane and Angel are back. Damn I missed them and I’m so glad that their comeback was just as good as the first book.

Here Angel and Shane have been together for over a year and the time for Shane’s graduation is approaching fast. Their relationship has slowly gone steady and solid, even if things still remain unsaid.

I think this couple had this particular problem from the start, they don’t communicate well and that makes for some frustration. So much trouble could be avoided, you know?

Anyway, while their relationship grows and their feeling along with it there is a whole different kind of tension lurking around and spoiling the mood. By spoiling, I literally mean it as some very hot and seriously sexy scenes were interrupted by Angel’s insecurities and fears.

The title says it all: Undeclared. Shane gets a job for next year on the East Coast and the things that have been left unsaid between the pair are making an appearance. Angel is not sure where they stand as a couple, if they’ll still be together, if that means they’ll break up, and being the little tongue-tied that he is he fails to broach the subject, instead venting a different way and causing unnecessary fights. As for Shane, he too doesn’t know how they’ll play out. Angel being a sophomore and glued with him from the beginning (not mentioning Shane being his first) has Shane thinking that his lover will be missing out, yet he doesn’t want to lose him. Still, right know Shane can’t see how they’ll work out what with Shane in New York and Angel still in California.

A weekend apart though solves all that for our couple. A bit of drama, a bit of angst and too much love make this lovely pair see a path and wave through.

So writing wise I liked it again. Nothing has changed from the previous book. The author still manages to take you with you and put you right in the middle of the story. The passion, the chemistry, the fears and insecurity of the young men are all felt and lived through the words written. And just like in the first book, their intimate scenes are so freaking hot, if  not better, I was bouncing on my seat waiting for them to come, while still enjoying the rest of the plot and not losing interest. I’m not big on drama, but the guys here were fortunately balanced on the, nothing over the top. It was one of my fears because Angel has a penchant for brooding and making a big deal out of things after having let them boil and boil.

Conclusion, this book was just what I expected it to be and thankfully, I was not disappointed. It was fast, it was fun, it had intensity, it was catching, and mostly it was an enjoyable light read. If you fancy any of the above, go ahead and grab it. Recommended.

Blurb: Sparks fly between jaded film TA, Shane, and tough-acting freshman, Angel. Shane gives Angel the sex he craves, but struggles to be the man he needs.

Shane’s too old for Angel. Even if Angel weren’t a freshman in Shane’s Intro to Film class, the kid would be too closeted, too confused, too darn changeable and needy. But when Shane sees the pain lurking behind Angel’s tough exterior, he can’t help but reach out to him and give in to the desire in those scared, brown eyes.

Pacific Rim University may as well be another planet from the Oakland neighbourhood where Angel grew up. Angel’s fought all his life to get respect, and to stay hard in the eyes of his friends back home. Always the weird kid, Angel was the guy who never hooked up with girls. Meeting his very sexy, very male Film TA, Angel starts to understand why. He refuses to admit he’s gay, but he lives for every one of Shane’s smiles.

When Shane takes Angel to task for his insolent attitude, Angel can’t resist pushing his TA further. He wants Shane to show him, force him, make him accept all the feelings battling around in his mind and his body. But Angel doesn’t just need sex. He needs a man who can help him navigate the new and very raw landscape of his feelings.

Review: Oh. I loved this book. It was very engaging, grabbing you from the beginning and holding you throughout the read.

Both characters were very lovable. Angel is a freshman whose clips on YouTube earned him a scholarship. Back in his neighborhood he was always the weird kid and had always had to act tough. This new world he suddenly landed is foreign to him and he feels confused and an outcast most of the time. Add to that the instant attraction he felt for his TA and Angel doesn’t know which way is up or down. Because while Angel has never acted with a girl, he hasn’t given much thought to his sexuality either. He simply can’t be attracted to a man…can he?

We see Angel struggle through his emotions. we see his mind say one thing, his body another and how much the confusion affects him and his actions. It’s not hard to love this character. Although, at times, he came across as too stupid. However, that gave him a more realistic air. the fact that he at times couldn’t get past simple words or phrases like “shut up” or “f*** you”. It made him real, it made him look scary and it made me like him even though he pissed me off at the same time.

And then there was Shane. Shane is gorgeous. He is also older than Angel by six years, plus Angel’s TA. It put a lot of strain in his crush with Angel and the fact that he was even crushing for the young man made him struggle with that. Normally Shane wouldn’t even think on acting on such a young guy, clearly inexperienced, clearly confused. Add to that the need he keep seeing in Angel’s eyes, a need for more than just sex and someone to teach him the ropes. But, rather intimacy, something Shane simply doesn’t do, and you got one scared Shane.

I loved him, too. The almost inevitable way he surrendered to Angels gruff manners. The way he made their relationship seem like it was Fate’s handiwork. I loved it – and I’m repeating myself, but it is true.

And I can’t help but complain about the length of this book. I wanted more. I liked the air and the writing style so a lot. It was even funny at points, light and easily read, with the intimate scenes being too good. The chemistry right there in every line dizzying you with its intensity and making you crave more.

Yup. I liked it and I can’t wait for the next installment. If you are a fan of college-boys and first-time-around-the-block kind of romance, then this book will certainly be to your satisfaction. Well worth it.

Blurb:   When a riot erupts in Built4’s stein-building lab, the alpha stein Kee drags a submissive young lab assistant into his cage. Kee’s been studying the human. Ben’s sad eyes and slender form call to Kee—urging him to equal parts lust and possessiveness.

Prisoner to the alpha, Ben surrenders to the stein’s fierce determination and gentle seductions. He’s long hated his job, feeling like a monster for following his boss’s orders, especially once he’s seen intelligence flickering in the alpha’s green eyes.

If Kee’s to escape, he needs Ben’s help to learn about the world outside the laboratory—a world full of people, sex and experiences Kee’s only beginning to discover. And guilt-ridden over the things he’s done, Ben can only forgive himself if the alpha forgives his sins first.

Reviewer:   Portia

Review:  Ben is a low-level lab technician.  His duties include the care and feeding of steins, genetically engineered creatures that are deemed less than human.  He knows it’s wrong, but he can’t help being drawn to the Alpha of the group.  Every experiments, every termination he’s involved with, is just a little harder to perform as he feels closer to the alpha stein.

This was a very interesting read.  Kee is the largest of the stein.  He is their natural leader.  He watches Ben and knows the other man in not like the scientist that bring pain.  During hours in his cage, he has learned how to speak and understand language.  He knows he and his friends are slated for termination.  He has already lost his lover, of sorts.  But, doesn’t have the words to describe his feelings. Only his fascination with Ben and his feelings of obligation to the other steins keeps him from utter despair.

When Ben and Kee can finally begin to get to know one another, I enjoyed how Harris kept their interaction plausible.  Kee didn’t all of a sudden start using million dollar words and understanding calculus.  His evolution is gradual and Ben misinterprets plenty, before they wind up on the same page.

This is a well-written story that left plenty of room for another addition to the series.  There’s a touch of action, a bit of intrigue and a taste of lovin’.  Highly recommend.
