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

That is until Helio shows up and Jael sees the reaction and reacts. The little dragon finds an old friend and all hell breaks loose when Helio goes to all links to find the rest of them. It puts him in danger and his mates are going to do all they can to keep him safe. When a dead body drops from the ceiling it places many questions coming, but the surprise will shock them all.

Fascinating as always and so damn entertaining. I love how new characters for futures series keeps showing up and promising a good time. Action packed, excitement overload, danger filled and lets not forget some very hot sexy times are just a bit of what you get in this story. The characters are charming, feisty and I love reading their story. It caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end.

I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to get my hands on the next story. I can guarantee that this is one of those stories that will be read many times over. I would definitely recommend this book.

Blurb: Roman is a hunter, tasked with finding and eliminating those who break the laws set down in a treaty between the humans and the paranormals. After being held captive and tortured for months, he’s more than ready to track down the one man he couldn’t stop thinking about. It was just too bad Seth wasn’t where he left him.

Wolf shifter Seth Connelly has a deep hatred of hunters. In his mind, they have done nothing but kill his kind for centuries. He fully believes that every last one of them needs to be wiped from the earth. When he meets an attractive man in a local bar and takes him home for the night, Seth never dreams that the man he spends the night with is his mate—and a hunter.

Vampire Casey is sent to deliver a message to a wolf shifter hiding out in the mountains. Before he can reach his destination, he’s attacked. He shows up on Seth’s doorstep, bloody and bruised, and never dreaming fate had a plan for him even he couldn’t imagine.

Standing on different sides of a war that is quickly coming, Roman, Seth, and Casey have to learn to put their hatred aside and work together to eliminate a new threat to them all. Failure to do so could mean more than their lives. It could mean the end of everything, including the growing love that neither of them can deny…but sometimes, hatreds run very deep.

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

Seth has met his mate, loved his mate then abandoned by him. It would seem that Seth being a wolf shifter was to much for the big bad hunter. Then when he almost got a friend killed because of his anger, he just wanted to be off the grid. To bad his brother wouldn’t let him. But he had not expected the cute vampire who was bloody to not only be on his step but to be another mate. Not that the ass believed the man, he had no clue what he was in for.

Roman was not only a human but a hunter who hated most paranormals, or so he used to in the past. He was getting over it but to find out that the man he slept with was his mate was a bit of a difficult thing to get over. However he wanted to make up for it. So imagine his surprise to find out about Casey.

Casey was a vampire sent on a mission to deliver a message. He had not expected to get beat up by others nor had he expected to wake up to a mate. Not that the man believed him. Casey was a sweet soul who just wanted his mate. When danger showed up and Casey is placed in danger, guess who shows up to help him.

I am not normally a fan of threesomes but Stormy always has me changing my mind. Out of all the characters I must say that Casey is the one I liked the most. He is just a cutie. However I did understand Seth’s pain as well. These three together is one hot sexy time. Danger, excitement and so much more is what you get with this story. And let me tell you that I had to finish the whole book in one sitting. I can guarantee that this is one of those books that will be read more than once.

I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to read the next one. I would definitely recommend this book and the ones before it.

Review: Each book in The Angel Pack collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. This series is also connected to Beyond The Angel Pack.

The Paradon society has its hands on many executions but what is being asked now is totally insane. Niall had no idea how he knew it but he just knew that what they were asking was suicide. Mike helped Jesse and Taylor when they were younger and now he was back in their lives but the man has many secrets. So when he comes to the alpha’s house you can imagine his surprise when he finds not one but both of his mates at the same time.

Sasha is a powerful guard for the King of Fae and is Sammy’s mate. However Sammy was not raised as one should have been. He was tortured in many different ways and made to created the most deadliest of drugs. He is a genius just like his twin but is also very much afraid of everything including the idea of mating. And that was before with just one mate, now two what was the fates thinking. Just wait for it!

As many readers I felt for sure book fifteen which was Fin was going to be the last book for this series so imagine my surprise when this book shows up. Excitement is just a small word for what I felt. This story gave me all I could want and so much more. Twists and turns, surprises, excitement, entertainment, danger, action and lets not forget that there are three sexy men getting it on. Talk about steaming up the room. I was glad to see everyone there and I just loved Sammy most of all. He was like a breath of fresh air. This is one of those stories that will cheer you up and have you dancing at the same time.

I absolutely loved it and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. I must admit the next dangerous person to show up will be a surprise but I can’t wait. This is one of those series that will be read many time over. I would definitely recommend it and the previous books as well. I sure do hope Sammy and Sasha not to mention Mike get to see the pitter patters as well as the others. Now talk about laughing my ass off, wow.

Blurb: Christmas isn’t always a joyous time of year. Not according to Robbie. After suffering a devastating loss a few years ago, he wants nothing to do with the holiday. Too bad he can’t simply escape Christmas, but fate has other plans.

Abner loves everything about Christmas, but his excitement is hampered by Robbie’s sour mood. He’s at his wits’ end on how to cheer Robbie up—until they’re splashed by freezing water while trying to cross the street. Abner is livid, ready to tell the driver off. Instead, he stares at the second most gorgeous man he’s ever met.

Malachi ran into town for errands, unknowingly heading right toward his mates. He’s baffled that Robbie and Abner have been together for weeks, and Abner is clueless about mates. When a rogue terrorizes the town and a deer starts stalking Robbie, it’s up to Malachi to set the holiday right and show his men that sometimes three is better than two.

Review: Each Book in the Brac Village collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters I would recommend reading them in sequential order. This particular story is connected to the Brac Pack, Zeus Pack, Christian’s Coven, Brac Pack Next Generation, and Demon Warriors. To enjoy this to get the full impact I would suggest starting with the Brac Pack series first.

Three mates in an action packed story is what you get to enjoy. Malachi is a panther shifter, Abner is a human and Robbie is an impala. Mix that in with Christmas and a magic reindeer and watch out for some fun times. Robbie and Abner are the first to meet but Robbie has kept the fact that he is a shifter from Abner. So imagine Abner’s surprise when they meet Malachi and finds out that humans are not as alone as he thought.

However a few problems are in store for them. For one Robbie hates Christmas with a passion, talk about a scrooge. Then there is the fact that a rogue shifter is out there, well they are going to need that reindeer’s help to make Christmas perfect.

The rogue shifter was not truly explained on why they couldn’t get their hands on him and how he escapes them. Where this story was pretty cool it just didn’t have the impact that I would have expected from it. It felt rushed and was missing some good parts to it. The reindeer was a funny character he wasn’t truly as outstanding that I have found in other stories. The whole story just lacked as much excitement that I would have wanted to see.

Other than those few issues with the story I did enjoy reading it quite a bit.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each Book in the Mercury Rising collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters I would recommend reading them in sequential order. Although with this story your looking at four men mating.

Colton hated vampires and now he was their leader. Here he was a wolf shifter in charge of a coven that killed his little brother. To top it off he had not one, not two but three mates. Triplets that were all vampires.

I like Colton from the previous stories however I didn’t care for this story. It was harder to get into for one and then there was the fact that he was turned into a vampire without permission. The story was not as engaging as most of this author’s work has been. I just couldn’t get my head into it. I am not a fan of this many mates in one mating. It just comes off poorly to me. The story itself felt rushed and I didn’t care for the vampires at all.

I hate to say it but this story just didn’t draw me in as it should have and makes me want to stray from anymore of this series. However I have not left a series unread in awhile so we will see what the next one has going for it.

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

Lounge rearranged, pool cleaned, towel’s used, food missing and cooked food when no one is around might just be the sign of the perfect guest. However this unexpected guest also started a fire by accident and he was unseen. However Miles managed to save a little girl from the fire, although he was the one that had started that fire, by accident of course. Miles was a Siren who ran away from home because he couldn’t hold a tune, but there are many surprises to come to him real soon.

Baxter was a sweet hotel owner who loved to help people. He just couldn’t figure out who was doing the surprising things around the hotel when no one was around and even the camera’s didn’t catch him. When a fire starts and he finds a cutie pie who says the white man saved her and told her to watch for Baxter, he is starting to think that his hotel might just be haunted.

Dallas is the fire investigator who is the lucky man to deal with the hotel fire, but even luckier because he has found his mate. When they find out about Miles, lets just say three is definitely not a crowd for these sexy men. However there is something major about the little girl that might just lead them to a larger problem.

Entertaining, exciting, full of action and danger but lets not forget some hot sexy times. You don’t just get two sexy men but three. This is one of those stories that will be read many times over and never forgotten. I am always on the lookout for these books and have always enjoyed the characters that are involved. I especially love when I get to see some of my favorite characters showing up. As always my attention was caught from the moment I started reading and kept all the way to the end. Not a thing was missing from it and that is a plus.

I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. I would definitely recommend this book and can guarantee that you will enjoy it. Now I am off to read it again.

Blurb: The year is 2327. Earth, once strong, is now trying to recover from the devastation of the Great War. During the battle, millions of lives were lost and cities were destroyed. Needing to rebuild, the government turned to other planets. One day, a starship arrived from the planet of Glecerus. The aliens traded technology and medicine for willing humans to become mates to their people.

Sebastian Cain is struggling to survive. His only option for a better life is to leave Earth. He volunteers to go to Glecerus. He’s looking for a fresh start and the only family he has left, an older brother. But life on Glecerus takes some getting used to, and Sebastian must learn the customs before becoming a mate to a Glecerian male.

High King Auden Q’Tal and Captain Regin Priq’aq are both interested in becoming Sebastian’s mate. Instead of bidding on the human at auction, the aliens battle it out, and the winner gets to mark and claim Sebastian.

Review: Volunteering to leave earth for a better life and to see his brother again Sebastian is in good spirits until he realizes that he does not have a clue about things that were explained in the manual he was given to read but never need. Luckly he makes a new friend named Georgie who knows everything in the manual. Along with a few other volunteers Sebastian navigates the rules carefully while attempting to calm himself. When he meets captain Regin Priq’aq aboard the ship that carries them to Glecerus he feels something for the alien upon first sight and the captain feels the same and has every intention of bidding on the young man.

It comes out that Sebastian’s brother is mated to one of the alien prince’s and so that makes Sebastian royalty as well and is taken off the auction progress. In Sebastian’s case a different set of rules apply as two males, the captain and the ruler of Glecerus, Auden, both want Sebastian.

I really enjoyed this first book as it details as much as possible without overdoing the information on the different aliens, planets and rules that are in place for the humans as well as the details surrounding the characters. I found myself immersed in a world that intrigued me to no end.

I loved the entire book. Fantastic read.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: This is the fourth installment of Silvia Violet’s Fitting In series. By now I’ve gone through a number of Silvia Violet books and in addition to loving the plot lines she creates, I also thoroughly enjoy her writing style. For me it is just so easy to zoom through just about every book that I’ve picked up. But back to the Fitting In series, we are back with our primary trio – Mason, Gray and Jack – after a departure from the guys in the previous book. The guys are in love and work so well together.

After book 2 being written from Jack’s POV, we are now back to having the story told from Gray’s POV. I must admit that Gray still annoys me at times, mostly because he seems to value his work above his personal life on a regular basis. But no one is perfect and something we are all guilty of, I think, in real life. The other thing to remember about Gray, which is why he is so good, is that he is a tough cop – a detective since his promotion in book 2 but it is nice to see that Mason and Jack are working their magic on the man and there are definite traces of a cuddly teddy bear. I wouldn’t say that Gray is the glue holding them together – I love how Silvia Violet has written it that each man has his own role in the relationship – but Gray is definitely a the dominate player in their trio. There is some light BDSM but nothing major beyond some bondage and spanking, although the guys talk about plans for a play room.

As for Mason and Jack, through Gray’s eyes it is clear that Jack and Mason a certain strength to the relationship that he cannot. This is especially true since it becomes increasingly clear that Gray is stressed from work and I definitely think that he needs the strength of both his men to help him through, even if Gray does not want to go on the holiday that Jack and Mason so desperately want.

My only criticisms are that the ending was a little abrupt, although I like to hope that there is more from the guys. It was danger, danger, danger… then bam! HEA! Not that I’m complaining, I think that it still worked really well. Part of me longs for a book written from Mason’s POV. Because that is something that I felt throughout all the previous books, part of me really wanted to hear from other characters in the ménage besides the man that is narrating (in Book 2 that was Jack and in book 3, with a different trio, it was Bryce).

All in all, though, this is a book I recommend without reservation, especially those that love to read a hot ménage relationship that works.

Blurb: Bryce has been a firefighter for ten years, but when a horrific house fire leaves him reeling, he moves to a new city, hoping to shove those memories behind him. As he adjusts to his new station, Bryce keeps to himself until Matt and Toby, two hot young men in his unit, throw temptation in his path. Bryce knows better than to mess around with men he works with, especially two newbies who are in the closet. But after a difficult day, Matt and Toby offer him compassion and friendship, which slips so easily into sex Bryce finds the combination irresistible.

Matt and Toby want to expand their relationship to include a third, and they’ve set their sights on their sexy bear of a lieutenant. Their first night together is a scorcher, and, more than that, it feels right, to all of them. But since Bryce refuses to hide who he is, and dating men on his shift is against the rules, all three men are going to have to make some tough choices if they want to stay together.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: I am seriously in love with the Fitting In series by Silvia Violet. Burning Up, however, is a bit of a departure from the previous two series which concentrated on three other men making their relationship work. For that reason this book works as a standalone if you want. Most importantly, though, you have three hot, gay fire fighters who seem to need little or no coercion to become a thruple.

The story follows established – and closeted couple – Matt and Toby, who are keen to add a third to their relationship. They need a dominant male, which means that there is some very light BDSM. That’s when we throw Bryce into the mix. He’s a bit older than Matt and Toby and has been a firefighter for ten years. After a horrific house-fire he picks up his life and ends up at the same station as Matt and Toby in an effort to get over the horrors in his life. However, Bryce also has a strict rule of not being in a relation with a co-worker and for damn good reasons.

This is hot and sexy. There are hot firefighters in dangerous situations and a good dose of sexual healing so that a trio of men who just fit together can get their HEA.

Review: Intense and brazen Flashpoint is at it again with the endorsement of certain high ranking members of the us government. It seems Sage can not catch a break and this time it looks as though Sage will be no more after the dust settles. Mags meets his mates Chad and Austin who are both badass. But they meet during a crisis so each do what they can to support the other.

I love this series and all the others connected to it. It’s a wonderfully written saga that has love, despair, action, suspense, secrets, love and the determination of people who will fight for their right to live and defend themselves against those that would see them dead for no other reason than who they are.

Fantastic read. Highly recommended.

Trying to settle into everyday life with two men isn’t as easy as Jacko had hoped. Although he’s been in love with his best friend for years, Jacko also finds himself attracted to Jamie. Watching the constant flirting and touching every day is enough to reduce the tough bushman to a puddle of need. What’s a bloke to do when he falls for two sexy men?

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Sunshine, Sex & Sunflowers is the sequel to Harvest Heat by Carol Lynne. As the publisher recommends, you should read book one first. There isn’t a lot of character introduction or development in this book and I feel most of it actually happens in the first book. This book was published previously, however, I think I somehow missed it because I really don’t remember reading it before. Which seems a bit odd for me because I absolutely fell in love with the authors two big series, Campus Cravings and Cattle Valley and would actually look for her other releases.

The story continues the story of lovers Lochie and Jamie. They’ve recently fallen in love and have moved in together on Lochie’s farm. In fact, Jamie has moved to Australia from the States to be with his man. Now we’re adding Jacko into the mix. He’s recently fallen onto hard time and is living and working with his best mate, Lochie. Jacko has always been attracted to Lochie but he finds himself torn with now developing an attraction to Jamie as well. Lochie and Jamie are happy together and yet they see the possibility for a lot more love in their lives with Jacko.

I can’t go further because this is essentially the bones of the book and if I say anything else there’s no point in reading it. I think part of the reason I didn’t read this in the past was because there are so many books that are set in Australia that just don’t capture the true Aussie nature. I suppose that is true for others who read books set in their own country but written by an author who does not live there. For any Aussies, I recommend ignoring the stereotyping of farms and regional life because for me it did come across as a little silly at times.

This is a simple, quick read. If you want to just read something sexy without thinking too much, this is probably a good choice. Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of character or plot depth, which is annoying because I like the author so much, but come (no pun intended) for the romance and stick around for the sex. That’s all I can say.

Blurb: — Being kidnapped by two werewolves is an adventure after all, right? Right?! —

 

Quinn

If Quinn wants to get the best photos for his travel blog, no gate is too tall, and no ‘do not enter’ sign actually means he won’t go in. What he finds in a hidden exclusion zone by Chernobyl blows his mind. Mutants? Monsters? He doesn’t know, but he is bound to find out when not one but two of them break into his hotel.
Too bad the rules and attitudes they have toward sex don’t match Quinn’s at all.

Dima

Born with a disabled hand, smaller than the other werewolves, Dima is the lowest of the low in his pack, but when he meets the loveliest human he’s ever seen, he knows his luck has changed.
The last thing he expects though is his beloved friend Nazar turning on him once Dima’s affection for Quinn deepens, and he refuses to be mounted by Nazar anymore.

Nazar

Nazar is a high ranking soldier in his pack, but in his powerful body hides a gentle soul, and all he wants is to escape the pack with Dima. But once Dima claims Quinn as his, secrets Nazar has so far kept hidden rear their ugly head.
The werewolf language doesn’t have words to describe what they crave, so Quinn might be the only one to help them solve the puzzle of the desires that go against the rules of their pack.

Shorty’s Review: 💖💖💖💖💖4 1/2 Hearts

Quinn has wanted to visit Chernobyl and take pictures so he goes on a tour. The guides strongly caution them not to go into the darkened area on the map. Of course Quinn does not listen. There he discovers a beast roaming around but it seems friendly. He ends up having to be rescued due to injuring himself.

Dima is the werewolf he met. Dima tells his lover Nazar what he experienced and the two hatch a plan to snare themselves a human. I liked these three together. Nazar only turned human once. The rest he is in werewolf form, but Dima stole my heart. I felt for him and what he has been thrown being the bottom of the pack and disfigured. I like that Nazar took up for him when he noticed others picking on him.

It was an interesting mix of characters and details surrounding the pack that lives near Chernobyl.

Great read.

Lisa’s Review: 💖💖💖 3 Hearts

Nazar is one of the stronger wolves and Dima’s protector. He has a big heart and loves Dima quite a bit. He protects Dima, because to the pact Dima is not only the lowest of the pack but should have been culled at birth. They are at different ends of the spectrum when it comes to the pack.

Quinn is a travel blogger and pretty good at his job. He looks for the unexpected and usually gets in trouble for it. So here he was looking at the old land after the big bomb destroyed much of it, to what it looked like now. Here his guides were warning him and the others to stay away from the black zone, well Quinn is stubborn to say the least. He heads straight for it and comes across something he had never expected, Dima in werewolf form.

Kidnapped by two werewolves is not exactly what he had expected but his curiosity is going to get him into trouble. Dima is the one that falls first, but a threesome is going to be in his future.

Ok first off I am going to say that this was the longest feeling book I have ever came across. It had more detail to it but it didn’t turn out the way it was suppose to in my eyes. It felt a bit off and fell flat in many parts. I didn’t care for the characters at all, except for Dima. Quinn was an ass and didn’t really show me that he truly loved Dima. As for Nazar, he still called Dima his brother instead of his mate near the end. Plus he turns on Dima, who was suppose to be his best friend, just because he has feelings for another. It just felt off to me.

Overall I couldn’t get into the book like I should have. It was a bit on the dull side and didn’t really catch my attention at all. I felt disappointed in it and can’t say that I would read it any more than this one time.

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.

Beat of Their Own Drum

(Replay 03)
by

K.M. Neuhold

Jude

Every rock band needs their bad boy. Hookers, drugs, DUIs— been there, done that. I’m in a Downward Spiral and proud of it (see what I did there?). When the band manager, Archer, hires Bennett to keep me from screwing up while the band is on hiatus, I may have finally met someone who won’t take my attitude lying down. With the three of us cooped up together for weeks on end, I have a feeling things might get interesting.

Archer

Downward Spiral is my baby. Not only am I the band manager, I discovered them ten years ago when they were nothing but a bunch of high school kids playing in a hole in the wall bar on the weekends. But it’s obvious I haven’t done a great job because they’re falling apart. If the lead singer isn’t trying to kill himself, it’s the bass player telling me he can’t write any new songs. And no one gets under my skin more than Jude, who seems determined to snort and drink himself into an early grave. There’s only one man I can think of who might be able to get Jude back on the right track, Bennett Schmitt. Unfortunately, he’s also the man I let get away sixteen years ago and haven’t gotten over since.

Bennett

If there’s one thing I know how to do, it’s take control of a situation. In fact, control is kind of my thing. Which is probably why I’m the best in the business when it comes to getting out of control celebrities back on track. When my ex calls and tells me he’s desperate for my help, I can’t turn him down. Between the infuriatingly sexy drummer with no idea what kind of trouble he’s asking for, and my ex looking better than ever, there’s no way this isn’t about to get messy.

* This is an MMM romance with D/s play and mild daddy kink (NO age play)

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Flashpoint is at it again with simultaneous attacks against the residence’ of Sage and surrounding areas. Things are brutal and some are left injured or dead in the wake of the attacks. Some that participated are captured. John’s son Murray is badly hurt.

Trash finally reels in his lion shifter mates Brody and Tobias after they come on to strong and Trash runs. He gives them a merry chase until they learn to control themselves. There was a lot of different things going on in this wonderful addition to the series.

In the aftermath some of the residence’ of sage decide to leave Sage to live elsewhere in a safe Haven that sounds like heaven even though they have to start from scratch and build their place.

I loved everything about it except I wanted to know who were twenty eight residence that lost their lives in the attacks. The story never said and I wanted to know. Regardless, it was an absolute fantastic addition to the series.

Blurb: Bravery will lead you to your destiny.

The human and alien rebellion is at hand, but those who have already arrived at the secret military facility are without the one who has inspired them to stand against the Nall. Chris, the human chosen by the Alasharian spiritual leader Sha Sha Ar, has been missing since the escape to the hideout. Those who have never seen Chris before, have only heard tales of his visions, begin to doubt his existence. Fear spreads through the group as humans and Alasharians alike wonder if they’re all doomed, if maybe Chris is a fantasy or has already fallen at the hands of the Nall.

Graham, Morgan and their Alasharian matches stand before the terrified group to reassure them that Chris is real. They’ve barely begun to speak when they are forced to fight an unexpected foe. But before the final battle against the Nall and the Void begins, all must search within themselves to discover what part they will play to achieve their destiny—and to summon the bravery they’ll need to see it through.

Reader Advisory: This book contains graphic battle scene violence and medical play, as well as references to rape and torture. There is also a scene involving urethral sounds.

ISBN: 978-1-78651-662-6

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: The entire series up to this point of human and Alasharian’s meeting their mates, unanswered questions lead to this exciting climax as they all go through a spiritual awareness to culminate with battle plans and strategies to beat all their foes. It will not be easy but nothing in life is.

I loved everything about this story. The danger was real, the battles intense and graphic that left me on the edge of my seat. I loved how all the characters worked together despite the doubts gathering around Chris. The twists and turns were a real eyeful and one even took me by surprise as I did not see it coming.

Needless to say this story was awesome.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Genre: Contemporary, Menage

Length: Novella (160 Pages)

Publisher: Jocular Press (August 27, 2018)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥ 3 Hearts

Blurb: Three men, one love—and a passion he only ever dreamed of.

Karel Novak is content with his busy job in hotel refurbishment, enjoying the social scene in Soho, London and the company of new friends he met through working at With A Kick. All he’s missing is a special man in his life. Or maybe two.

His first meeting with the mercurial pole dancer Leroy and his socially anxious partner Griff isn’t impressive, but none of them can ignore the sexual spark that flares between the three men.

Their relationship builds in steps of passion, frustration, and finally love. Both Leroy and Griff have complex issues in their lives to work through, and at first Karel brings a new dynamic that both settles and supports them.

But although he loves his men, Karel gradually realises the issues are still present. His partners struggle with living individually as well as together. His heartfelt wish is for them to create a lasting bond as a trio—but that means putting others first, all too often.
And will that mean sacrificing his own joy and dreams?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Karel is not looking for a relationship but damn if he doesn’t get one. Not with one man but two. One night of hot sex and well you get the idea. And what an idea it is. He just has the normal will I fit into a already made relationship. I have only came across one book in the large amount that I have that make the threesome work. One that makes it seem that they each need the other. The heart, the soul and the glue that keeps them together is a bit what you get.

I have read a several books with threesomes in them and only a handfull actually make the story enjoyable. This story didn’t catch my attention like it should have, in fact after the first page I was ready to give it up. However once the story starts to unfold it actually gets a bit better. The guys are quite enjoyable and easy to follow in love with. It is about their love for each other and going further then what they are use to or comfortable with. It is a well written story that is engaging and compelling to a reader. It flows evenly and at the right pace to keep your attention captured. The characters come off as someone you would hang out with.

However Leroy and Griff come off whiny and very needy. It might be fine in parts but in this book it seemed a bit to much. Then Karel feels like he is their parent but you can still see the love for each other. There was the passion between the three and the heat burning. I just couldn’t connect with the story like I should have though. It was missing something that would have made it quite a bit better for me.

I will admit that this is not one of those stories that will be read more than once though. It is a good read and the characters are hot and steamy. It is one of those stories that seem like it could be real in life instead of a book. Overall the story was pretty good and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend it.
