Blurb: Welcome back to the Blue Solace: (Sequel to “The Mercenary’s Mate”)

Leti Ando and Will Hackett are certain about one thing in all the galaxy. They love one another. Now that they are mated, it’s time to meet Hack’s parents and settle into their new home. In a normal courtship, the two would spend time getting to know one another and reveling in their love. Normal isn’t what they get.

Leti struggles to understand the artifact Dr. Morrick left them, but what he’s discovering is unbelievable and completely frightening. If his theories are true, then the entire galaxy is at risk. Meanwhile, he tries to adjust to Charybdis Station, deal with his parents, and worse of all, learn to cook. Luckily he has friends, old and new, to help him.

Hack comes home to Charybdis Station, expecting a break from the hectic adventures of the past few months. What he gets are changes, more responsibilities, and a war with the Concord. He’ll deal with it, though. All he has to do is look around him to understand why it’s time to fight back.

Together, the new couple must learn to stand together, to accept and support one another. Their happiness isn’t the only thing at risk.

Author’s Note: 60,000+ words. This is a m/m love story with no angst and no cheating, just a HEA. There is lots of action, sex, mpreg, and a few potty mouths involved in the story. 18+ readers only, please. It is also the second book in a series that is best read in order. Read “The Mercenary’s Mate” first!

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Leti and Will travel to meet Will’s family. There is no shortage of laughter as well as tense scenes to grab your attention.

I liked that Leti was concerned about the artifact and that Will understood his concerns.

Many things happen throughout to make and interesting addition and read in the series.

Good read.

Anthony Rawson is screwed. Fans, producers, and his agent are all chomping at the bit for the next book in his wildly popular Triple Moon series, but he’s got epic writer’s block and is way behind deadline. Then he reads Axis Mundi, a fanfic novel by his online friend “SirMarrok.” It isn’t just a great story—it’s exactly what the series needs.

Samir Daoud is thrilled when “Ulfhedinn” wants to meet up after reading Axis Mundi. When Ulfhedinn turns out to be Anthony Rawson himself, Samir is starstruck. When Anthony tells him he wants to add Axis Mundi to the Triple Moon series, Samir is sure he’s being pranked. And when their online chemistry carries over—big-time—into real life, Samir is convinced it’s all too good to be true.

The problem is … it might be. The book deal, the sex, the money—everything is amazing. But fame isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and Samir is left wondering if Anthony really loves him, or just loves his book.

This 95,000-word novel has been previously published under a different title.

Laws of Attraction

(The Manx Cat Guardians 06)
by

J.P. Sayle

Nick Riley, on the surface has it all. He’s grown up in a loving family, owns his own home, and has a job he loves. Yet under that façade of a happy life, Nick hides a multitude of secrets and lies. Those same secrets and lies have forced him to build walls to protect himself and kept others away.

Nick’s life is unraveling, and his walls are tumbling when his brother invites him for a visit to the Isle of Man. Nick is left floundering, unsure which way to turn and who to trust when his past decides to come knocking. Things go from bad to worse when Nick finds the fates haven’t finished with him, and his brother’s best friend, Brody Quilliam, comes to stay.

Brody Quilliam needs a break from his life and the weight of responsibility of his job. So when his best friend, Aaden Riley, moves to the Isle of Man and asks him to visit, Brody decides to take him up on the offer. Only things don’t go as planned when he finds Aaden’s younger brother, Nick, visiting at the same time.

Their love-hate relationship is only the beginning of Brody’s concerns. Events he can’t explain make him think he’s stuck in the twilight zone.

Witches, spells, and misconceptions are only the tip of the iceberg as Brody struggles to come to terms with the unbelievable.

Warning: Some of the content of this book is sexually graphic, with the use of explicit language and adult situations involving two males. It is only intended for mature adults.

This is the sixth book in the series and should be read in order to give the reader the back story of the other characters. The main characters in this book do get a HEA, but there is a storyline threading through the main story that is a cliffhanger and relates to a future series.

Blurb: Nylian Lukalyn, Ny to his friends, leads a content life— working for the family business, while enjoying life as part of the fae community. Watching friends fall in love hasn’t been easy, and he wonders if his ceile, his soul mate, is truly out there, or if he’s destined to spend his life alone.
Dran leads a solitary life, partly because he’s a bear shifter, but mostly because it is the life he has chosen. He’s devoted to tattooing and creating art. While he hopes to find his mate someday, he’s waiting patiently for the right person to appear in his life.

A chance meeting between Ny and Dran leaves an intense, simmering attraction. One they’d both love to pursue, but life isn’t as easy as that. The after-effects of an attack on their paranormal community has left their attention and budding romance divided while both are forced to focus on other aspects of paranormal life.

When another feral attack rocks the community, it shows how much danger they are all in— the most lethal feral they’ve encountered so far is out for blood. Friends old and new work together to try and bring the attacks to an end. Ny and Dran must figure out exactly what they mean to each other while praying that none of them lose their lives while they battle to rid Corent City of the ferals.

Review: Sweet story about Ny and Dran. I love these two together. Most of the book focused on them and their relationship amid attacks on the group. It was an emotional story with sweet and tender moments.

I love that other characters showed up in the story as well. The only thing was that I wanted to know more about the feral outbreaks and attacks not to mention why they are happening. I assume all will be revealed in future books.

Once a century, Hunter is released from his prison, and tempted with the chance to build a life for himself. At the end of a decade of freedom, if Hunter does not choose to become one of Osian’s minions, he is again remanded to the cold, lonely rock.

Fast forward six hundred years, and Hunter finds himself in Salem, Massachusetts.

Hunter Conroy sparks his interest until he sees the handsome tow truck driver throw a man across the room without even touching him.

Realizing he’s in love with this cursed man, Walker is willing to risk everything to fight for Hunter.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I loved this story of Hunter and Walker. Hunter is forced to become a gargoyle after declining to help an evil warlock Osian. Once a century Hunter is free for ten years. Now six hundred years later Hunter finds himself in Salem. He makes quite a few friends with a variety of paranormals. Upon meeting Walker Hunter finds himself hoping.

This was an amazing story. I loved all the characters, the history and the plans. It’s my favorite in the series so far. The crew from Cold Case Psychic was an added bonus. My heart went out to Hunter for all the things he missed out on while trapped.

Reviewer: Prime

Blurb: What happens when you try to fix the past and end up threatening your future?

Scott is struggling. Grieving the loss of his brother, carrying the weight of his father’s expecta-tions, and getting his ass kicked in the rink, he’s in a downward spiral. He needs a solution and fast, but when his steroid use is exposed, he’s close to losing his place at Owatonna and more importantly, on the Eagles Hockey team. Thrown out of his house, with nowhere to go and no future in sight, he only has one choice; agree to mandatory counseling, random drug tests, and get his act together. Only then will he have a chance at normal. Meeting Hayne, a senior con-nected to the world through his art, is a shock to the system. Moving in with him is his only op-tion, but falling for the shy artist leaves Scott in an impossible situation, and one he can’t es-cape.

Hayne has always been that quiet, creative kid who sat in the back of class drawing instead of listening to the teacher. A talented artist, the shy and sensitive young man is struggling with the loss of his childhood friend. Seeing his sadness reflected in his usually colorful paintings, he decides to attend grief counseling and meets Scott, a lost soul in desperate need of light and color in his life. Taking in a homeless hockey player certainly was never part of his carefully or-chestrated ten-year plan. But now that Scott is in his life, he’s discovering the joy of this man’s loving smile and tender touch is one of the most beautiful palettes on earth.

Review: Scott is the second book in VL Locey and RJ Scott’s Owatonna U series. I adore the authors, VL Locey and RJ Scott, and I especially adore their hockey romances that they write together. I could go on for a long time about how much I love their style of writing and how their characters develop and grow, both outside of their book and within the book where those characters become MCs.

Unlike the first book, which starts off feeding directly from the authors’ Harrisburg Railers series from which it spun off from, you do not need to have any background from the Railers series. However, there are a few Easter eggs for avid fans on the look out for them (*clears throat* cameo and mentions of Jared Madsen and Tennant Rowe). In saying that though, I do encourage those that have not read Ryker to read that one before you go into Scott, because Scott’s story (well the moment where everything crashed down for him) happened in Ryker. Scott is dealing with the aftermath. Ryker and Jacob, in addition to Scott’s best friend Ben, make a few appearances because sometimes an intervention is needed and these guys are awesome friends.

Scott has been struggling to keep his head above water for a few years now and it all culminated in him making a massive mistake, taking steroids in the hope that his playing will improve. The problem with that is that he has hurt a lot of people, and sadly he doesn’t even remember a lot of it in his drug and alcohol haze. This isn’t because he is trying to be an arsehole jock. In fact, it’s really complicated and stems from his family’s complete breakdown after the death of his older brother, who Scott had idolised and is now constantly compared to by his father. Like many things that involve addiction or grief – or something else involved in mental health – it has built up to the point where Scott has hit rock bottom and has no choice but to deal with it.

Part of Scott’s recovery is going to group grief counselling sessions at the university. Scott has completely detached himself from everything in his life and is just looking to survive. However, things change when he meets Hayne. Hayne is a sweet and kind artist, he is grieving over the loss of his best friend to leukaemia. Hayne is also broken, but very different to Scott’s hurts, and he is dealing with things a lot better. Helping Scott is natural but becomes part of his recovery.

I love the themes of this story – two completely broken individuals building themselves up again, but they have to realise that they can’t do it alone and that each journey is both different and the same. Scott and Hayne are a wonderful couple.

I’m looking forward to the next story in this series, Benoit. Scott and Ben were best friends and unfortunately how Scott tried to cope with things led to Ben being hurt. I’m looking forward to both getting to know Ben more (seems like a top bloke). I’m also looking forward to finding out more about Ben’s side of the story and if we find out a few more tid bits from Scott and Hayne, as well as Jacob and Ryker.

Blurb: Ailin~

The demon gate needs to be sealed, at least from higher level demons. I may be the most powerful witch in the world right now, but I know I can’t do it alone. No one wants to help and risk their lives for the greater good, not that I can blame them, really. It kills me to ask my boyfriend, Emrys, but I suck it up because his magic is nearly as powerful as my own. He doesn’t want to help at first, but let’s just say I can be very persuasive.

Emrys~

Maybe he should’ve listened to me, maybe we never should’ve gone to the gate. Terrible things unfold, and Ailin and I are torn apart, our love ripped to shreds. My life is forever changed, and there’s nothing I can do about it.

In the Witch’s Seal, you’ll discover some secrets from Ailin, Emrys, and even Alec. Find out what really happened between Ailin and Emrys before the events in The Enchanter’s Flame took place, but it’s recommended that you read Book 1 first.

***The Witch’s Seal is the prequel to The Enchanter’s Flame: The Ellwood Chronicles I. It contains explicit material and is intended for mature adults 18 and over.***

Review: A short story about the events that made Emory and Ailin break up. This story had a very tense situation in where Emory tried to kill Ailin or at least it seemed like it. I liked that despite being banned from the property Emory still checked up on the coven now and then.

I was pleased he found someone else, Julius, a vampire and seems happy. I am looking forward to more in this series to see what happens with the other characters.

Great read.

Blurb: Welcome to the mercenary ship, The Blue Solace:

Leti Ando needs off planet and fast. He has a best friend and a new half-sister to rescue, and he needs to be sneaky about it. Unfortunately sneaky isn’t really his thing. With the help of a friend, Leti and his menagerie, along with his two companions, stow away aboard a mystery ship. Little does he know that The Blue Solace belongs to the infamous mercenary, Captain Will Hackett, a man he’ll come to love with everything inside him.

Will has been in a bitchy ass mood for the past six months. He’s restless and grumpy, but doesn’t know why. He knows he needs something and he can’t find it, but his crew are out of patience and insist on some R &R back home at Charybdis Station.

Then Hack finds a stow away angel and everything changes. Leti is his mate and he’ll do anything to keep him safe and happy, even smile.

The galaxy’s not a safe place, though, and The Blue Solace has a job to do: pick up a renowned scientist and his mysterious artifact. Then get them safely back to Charybdis Station. Hack and Leti don’t realize their romance story is about to get hijacked by Concord mercenaries. Their love is easy, it happens just like that. Staying alive and keeping the galaxy safe? That’s a little harder.

Author’s Note: 41,801 words. (Previously published as “Happens Just Like That”). This is a m/m love story with no angst and no cheating, just a HEA. There is lots of action, sex, mpreg, and a few potty mouths involved in the story. 18+ readers only, please. It is also the first of two books about this specific couple.

Review: Leti and his many pets, sister and travel companion stow away aboard a mercenary ship to get away from his father. The mercenary captain has been irritating and grumpy but not knowing why until he meets his mate Leti that is a stowaway.

Many antics take place as the many exotic animals are taken over by various crew members and everyone finds a place. I liked the way the story progressed but have to confess that I was a bit put off by how nice a mercenary captain was in this story. I was expecting him to be a bit more gruff not happy all the time.

Other than that it was an entertaining story.

Blurb: War never leaves a soldier behind.

Staff Sergeant Alexei Dvorkin is still healing from his brief stint as a prisoner of war. While his physical wounds have mended, the emotional scars left behind are slow to disappear. Eager to prove his resilience in the face of lingering trauma, Alexei is determined to complete his first mission in three months and get back into the field—but he’s not forging ahead without his lover.

Nightmares will always linger.

Agent Sean Delaney’s recovery from trauma is more slow going than he would like, but he pushes through in order to return to active duty and not be left behind. But every decision he makes leaves him feeling like he’s gone two steps forward and one step back when it comes to Alexei. The guilt Sean feels from what they both endured still colors his interactions with the man he loves. Trying to overcome it is difficult and exhausting, making Sean question his place in Alexei’s heart.

Holding on is the hardest thing to do.

The ties between Alexei and Sean were frayed by the enemy’s hand. Mending what’s been broken between them will require a depth of honesty neither man is ready to face just yet. But if they don’t, they risk losing a future together neither wants to let go.

Out of the Ashes is a 28,000 word novella that follows directly after In the Blood in my Metahuman Files series and builds off of events in that book. It is recommended that you read In the Blood first before reading Out of the Ashes. There are explicit intimate scenes that are not suitable for readers under the age of 18 within the novella.

Review: Three months after being kidnapped Sean is still dealing with the trauma of what happened. He’s afraid to touch Alexei for fear of hurting him. For his part Alexei is patient in waiting Sean out. The day comes when both are ready for a new mission. The mission is not easy but they get what they went for and more.

I really love Sean and Alexei together. They went through so much at the hands of Cillian yet came out stronger. It was a bonus that Sean is now part of Alpha Team at Jamie’s request.

Fantastic addition to the series.

Blurb: Isha has spent the last year watching his BFF get his happily-ever-after. He’s proud of Dom, but…it hurts to see him so free while Isha’s love life is still on lockdown. Only Isha’s ex-wife knows the secret that he’s kept caged for so long—that he’s queer too, and he’s lonely.

Jude’s too chained to his work to notice what he’s missing by being terminally single, but a new face in the village soon catches his attention. City boy Isha is gorgeous, and when he starts to haunt Jude’s reptile shop as well as the hook-up app on his phone, he’s a welcome distraction from Jude’s business problems.

For a control freak like Isha, letting Jude under his skin is an existential meltdown, but Jude’s not in the market to be anyone’s queer crisis, not when he’s facing troubles of his own. Unlocking their lives could push both men apart forever, but it might be a risk worth taking if sharing is the key to their happy future.

Purchase Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Review: Jude is the second book in Garett Leigh’s series Lucky. This book focuses on a different couple from the previous books and works as a standalone book, although both couples (Lucky and Dominic, Cash and Rae) feature heavily throughout this book. Obviously, Garrett Leigh is not an entirely new author to me, but I feel that I need to do more exploring with the author’s offerings to get a true opinion on how I feel there.

Even after the three books in this series I am not completely sold on the writing style, feeling that there is a lot of filler words and faffing about. Then again, I just might not have any patience, particularly when I can see the direction in which the story will go. However, in saying that Jude is by far my favourite book in the series, where I felt it was much easier to relate to the MCs, even if I wanted to strangle one of them multiple times throughout the book.

The couple in this book is Jude and Isha, both of which have close ties to the second book. Jude owns and runs a pet shop, devoting all his energy to the business, so much so he doesn’t see that there could be more in his life. They hook up on Grindr. They also meet when Jude needs to organise a party for his son, mostly because his ex-wife can’t handle snakes and the kid wants a pet party (seriously, never knew that could be a thing for a kids party). Isha isn’t closeted but he has issues in showing the world his sexuality, even if his ex-wife embraces this side of Isha more than Isha does. And this is where the miscommunication comes in.

Isha has a lot of shit to sort through and though I really wanted to strangle him, this is what made him an excellent character. He had a lot of growth throughout the story before he could be worth of Jude. Isha’s other problem is that he uses work as a crutch to keep him occupied so that he doesn’t have to face up to reality. He is really an intriguing character and is the reason why this rates as my favourite book in the series.

This is a book mostly about self-discovery. This will appeal to reader that are into reading characters that have to come to terms with themselves before they can let love in. It was nice seeing the four guys from the previous books again as they tried to help their friends.

Blurb: A psychic without an anchor. A student in trouble. A shooter on the loose.

I’m Jonathan Bane, a licensed psychic who consults for the police. I routinely help the police put the bad guys away and, for that reason, the criminal world doesn’t like me much. People like to take a swing at me, or go stabbity, or try for a gun. It makes for interesting times. My psychic ability prevents me from handling anything electronic—and I do mean ANYTHING, I fry it in seconds—so calling for help isn’t always a possibility.

I need an anchor, a partner, but I’m resigned: it’s just wishful thinking.

At least, I thought so until he walked through the door.

Donovan Havili looks like a thug and has the soul of a superhero. He shines so bright in my vision it’s like watching a supernova. He definitely has the right mindset and skills for this crazy job. But asking anyone to take me on long-term is a bit much. And now we’ve got multiple cases to handle, a Chinese exchange student falsely accused who needs our help, and someone taking random shots at me. It’s a bit much for any new guy to handle and I’m half-afraid that my new partner will run for the door.

But in Donovan Havili, the criminal world has met its match. And maybe, just maybe, I have as well.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Jon is a very interesting character to say the least. He has a strong psychic abilities and it sometimes ends up with him in danger. Everyone around him wants him to find someone to anchor him but he has some pretty strong fears with it. His mother has a lot to make up for. His life has not been a perfect one but he is loved by many. Well he is loved by all except for those he ends up putting behind bars. All it takes is one look from him to figure out what is in a person’s soul. So when everyone is staring at a man who is there for a job, all he sees is a bright light and beauty.

Donovan is a strong man with a military background. He has a heart of gold and a spirit to match. After being injured he was a bit weary, but you could not tell from the way he protects. He has been judged for the way he looks and acts, but once you get to know him, he will have you eating out of his hand. Jon sees the true him and it makes a difference right off the bat. So much so that it might just put him in the one place that he should be.

Multiple cases going on and you get to see what Jon is all about. The story is quite unique and fresh. I stole this discription from the tag line with this story, but you get Companionable snark, Flirting, Kissing, Jon needs a hug, Donovan gives the best hugs, Getting together, Self-esteem issues, Explicit content, Anal Sex, Romantic Sex, Random shooting, Which Donovan isn’t happy about, Donovan is a gentleman, Sort of, Jon just makes it REALLY REALLY HARD Okay?, Supernatural elements, Modern with Magic, Feels, All the Feels, Mostly accurate medical stuff, Lets not forget that Jon pretty much destroys all electronics’s which was funny as hell. Excitement, danger, adventure, and some pretty sweet characters are a bit more of what you get in this book.

Normally I don’t really care to even try to read a story by an author I have not heard of, but I was glad that I took the chance with this one. The world that was created for this story was amazing and it flowed just perfect for me. When the cases started to build up I couldn’t figure out how the author would work it right, but the ending just about blew me away.

There were a few small issues with it but truthfully it was an amazing story that I had a blast reading. I can honestly say that this will be one of those that will be read many times over.

I would definitely recommend it.

With war looming and his allies becoming fewer and fewer, will Alyx choose to search for Evander? Or will he find it in himself to stand up and fight for his kingdom, in Evander’s name?

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Alyx is consumed by grief and despair but tries to continue on lost in his own world. With the help from their allies the search continues. The person who kidnapped Evander was a surprise to me. This person is cold and calculating and wants the throne for himself.

I loved this story. It had everything and more. I must admit I am still curious as to who Cor was but after having read the first book of the new series I think I might know.

Fantastic read and ending to a series.

At A Stranger’s Mercy by Brittany Cournoyer

Title: At A Stranger’s Mercy

Series: Badge and Bullets 01

Author: Brittany Cournoyer

Genre: Contemporary, Mystery, Suspense

Length: Novel (235 Pages)

Publisher: Brittany Cournoyer (March 22, 2019)

Heat Level: Low

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

Blurb: Making eye contact with a killer wasn’t exactly how Bradley Danforth had planned to start his day. As an accountant, he craved structure and routine. What he hadn’t anticipated was being part of a real-life murder mystery with him cast in the starring role.

Death and sorrow were part of Max Donohue’s job description, leaving the detective hardened after years on the job. On his latest case, he’s the one stuck protecting the only witness in a sadistic homicide.

One death becomes two… then three. And soon Max and Bradley find themselves playing a deadly game of cat and mouse. Can Max save Bradley from the clutches of a serial killer? Or will the killer finish what he started?

At a Stranger’s Mercy is the first installment of a continuing series featuring the same two characters. It’s a suspenseful murder mystery that depicts detailed crimes, strong language, and adult situations. While this series will include a romance, it’s a slow burn that develops throughout the series.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Bradley is unlike many men I have come across and I wasn’t too sure of him. He was an accountant that loved numbers and their mystery. He had a routine that he lived by and the one time it failed was going to be a disaster. He knew something bad was around him but could not figure it out. That is until he drove by and saw a monster’s eyes. Being a witness to a possible murder was not what he expected nor wanted. Then the monster came for him and it was up to the detective in charge to help him.

Max is a grouchy asshat who needs a personality change. Very little sleep and one nasty murder has him on edge. However when he met the only witness lets say things don’t go the way one expects. Then when Bradley is attacked it changes the game.

Three murders and not very many clues has Max looking everywhere but the surprises never stop. This story definitely could give a reader nightmares. I did not look at the blurb when I started reading this so I was a bit disappointed that there was no sign of a romance, well until the end. Also lets face it these two characters are not easy to connect with nor like. If I had to pick one I would say that I did like Bradley more than I did Max, but that would be pushing it. They are both asshats in their way. Another was when Bradley gave his secret location away to someone that might be considered a friend shows that he might have brains about numbers but not in other areas.

The murders are freaky and down right nasty. The author really put in a lot of work to make it nasty which was a plus for the story. It was definitely unique and very fresh with ideas. It was a on the edge of your seat type of story and very well written. I am not one that reads stories by authors I have never read before but was glad to have read it. I can’t say that I would read this more than once but I will wait to see what the next book has in it. I also never expected who the killer was. It was a shock. I will admit that Max was a challenge because you could see that deep down he was a good guy and truly wanted to help.

The twists and turns this book had going on were a major thrill for me. This story was a great start to a new series and I look forward to reading more.

Scott

(Owatonna U Hockey 02)
by

R.J. Scott & V.L. Locey

What happens when you try to fix the past and end up threatening your future?

Scott is struggling. Grieving the loss of his brother, carrying the weight of his father’s expectations, and getting his ass kicked in the rink, he’s in a downward spiral. He needs a solution and fast, but when his steroid use is exposed, he’s close to losing his place at Owatonna and more importantly, on the Eagles Hockey team. Thrown out of his house, with nowhere to go and no future in sight, he only has one choice; agree to mandatory counseling, random drug tests, and get his act together. Only then will he have a chance at normal. Meeting Hayne, a senior connected to the world through his art, is a shock to the system. Moving in with him is his only option, but falling for the shy artist leaves Scott in an impossible situation, and one he can’t escape.

Hayne has always been that quiet, creative kid who sat in the back of class drawing instead of listening to the teacher. A talented artist, the shy and sensitive young man is struggling with the loss of his childhood friend. Seeing his sadness reflected in his usually colorful paintings, he decides to attend grief counseling and meets Scott, a lost soul in desperate need of light and color in his life. Taking in a homeless hockey player certainly was never part of his carefully orchestrated ten-year plan. But now that Scott is in his life, he’s discovering the joy of this man’s loving smile and tender touch is one of the most beautiful palettes on earth.

A Lover’s Game by Max Walker

Title: A Lover’s Game

Series: Stonewall Investigations 04

Author: Max Walker

Genre: Mystery, Suspense

Length: Novel (258 Pages)

Publisher: Max Walker (February 25, 2019)

Heat Level: Low

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖💖 5 Hearts

Blurb: Zane Holden, the founder of Stonewall Investigations, has been haunted by the same case for years. He’s had loved ones taken by the serial killer known as the Unicorn, and his drive to find the monster is higher than ever. Finally, he feels like he’s getting close.

Something else that’s getting closer? His wedding day to the man of his dreams.

Lorenzo De Luca found the love of his life in Zane. He’s the happiest he’s ever been. His career as a high powered defense attorney is at a peak and his daydreams are filled with wedding bells and honeymooning.

It felt like absolutely nothing could go wrong.

But with the tensions from the case rising and a new presence in Enzo’s life making themselves known, there’s suddenly a lot that could go wrong. Zane and Enzo will have to tread carefully on their way to a blissful union. As Zane pushes closer to the Unicorn, the danger increases exponentially, until both men are faced with an excruciating reality: this all has to end one way or another.

The two men will need to come together and find strength in their love before they get torn apart by their fear.

ISBN: B07P8SG3VG

Product Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Wedding bells are getting closer and closer, but so is the Unicorn. It would seem that the one that had been arrested was in fact innocent of killing gay men that were in a relationship. Zane’s husband had been a victim to this crazy man which in turn made Zane want to help others and keep people safe. Then the murders kept coming, and when not only a friend but a man he put on the case was killed, it just made Zane go after him more. However keeping it from his soon to be husband was not a good idea.

Enzo couldn’t wait to marry Zane, but things were going crazy around him. When a man from the past shows up Enzo’s fears were getting to him. Then the truth comes out and man is he going to kick some ass, his man was keeping some big secrets from him. However when the Unicorn felt that they were getting close, well the tables get turned.

Talk about twists and turns in a story, wow the ending just about blew me away. This is one of those series that will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat. It has so much action an danger packed into it that you are always entertained. Not to mention the hot sexy times that the guys just seem to give you would set your sheets on fire. I love the guys and the supporting characters in these books. It gives you all you want and lets just say I didn’t expect the killer to be who it was. It kept me guessing throughout the story and that was a major hit with me.

I absolutely loved reading this book and can’t wait to see what other stories this author has out there. He is one hell of an author and his work is one that I would definitely recommend checking out. I hope there is more to come.
