It’s In My Blood

(Criminal Delights 10: Obsession)
by

Sean Azinsalt

Death eventually comes for us all. But what if there’s a way for older people to regain their youth? To stay a step ahead of the grim reaper?

Turning 40 was the last straw for me. It’s practically 60 in gay years and I wasn’t ready for dentures yet, so I came to Youthology — a program that injects clients with blood transfusions from young, fit and healthy donors.

I chose Nick.

Handsome. Masculine. And more importantly, young.

I thought I hit the lottery, until my life started to change for the worst. Not even the top medical experts can explain what happened to me. From the moment Nick’s blood flooded into my veins, I stopped being me, and I became something new; something dangerous and deadly.

I became my donor.

His obsessions are mine now. His darkest desires, his dreams, his needs, and nightmares are all a part of me, and I don’t want to let them go.

I embrace them and the beautiful boy who haunts both of our dreams.

My blood pact was sealed the moment I entered Youthology.

I never thought I’d become a killer.

Love Kills

(Criminal Delights 08: Serial Killers)
by

Michael Mandrake

Deranged birds of a feather flock together… leaving trails of blood in their wake.

Holland has fantasies most can’t accept. When potential mates discover Holland’s bloodlust, it’s too late for them to refuse. Determined to get what he wants, Holland continues to seek a man to fulfill his deepest desire and he won’t stop at anything

Archer is inspired and aroused by the tales he’s heard from his boyfriend. Still, he’s greedy for something that pushes him over the edge. Although this might drive him and his partner apart, Archer’s dark want won’t disappear.

Clint’s love for his job has slipped for years, and he’s pondered change. These days he’s cared more about how to please his man, than the rigorous position of solving murder cases. Clint thinks his attitude will eventually get better, thus prompting him to stay aboard. Still, the constant worry of Archer finding someone new niggles at him.

Putting sketchy characters behind bars had always been Clint’s forte, but when new feelings arise, Clint’s conscience is tested. Furthermore, what will happen if Clint is forced to choose between the love of his life, his career, and his morality?

SOME MATCHES SPARK AN INFERNO

Eirik Haldurson is a hitman. Kidnapped at age five and cruelly trained by his captor, he is today one of the most sought-after contract killers alive. Emotional distance from his targets, brutally beaten into him until it became second nature, is now the only way he can function. Lately though, that distance has started to elude him.

And when a Colombian drug cartel contracts Eirik to take out ex-soldier-turned-vigilante, Matt Moreno, distance is suddenly as close as heat to fire. And all hell breaks loose.

Deviant Desire by Jackson Marsh

Title: Deviant Desires

Series: The Clearwater Mysteries 01

Author: Jackson Marsh (7th March 2019)

Genre: Historical, Mystery

Length: Novel (286pgs)

ISBN: B07PH15H6R

Publisher: Jackson Marsh

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖 4 Hearts

Reviewer: Pixie

Blurb: The Victorian East End lives in fear of the Ripper and his mission to kill rent boys. Silas Hawkins, nineteen and forging a life on the streets could well be the next victim, but when he meets Archer, his life changes forever. Young, attractive and rich, Archer is The Viscount Clearwater, a philanthropist, adventurer and homosexual. 

When Archer suspects the Ripper is killing to lure him to a confrontation, he risks his reputation and his life to stop the madman’s murders. Every man must play his part, including Silas. 

Purchase Link: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Review: This is an interesting story that takes the Jack the Ripper story and gives it a twist, throw in an Aristocrat who is determined to help out the unfortunate young men from the poverty stricken East End of London and you get a very enjoyable read.

Archer has inherited the title of Viscount Clearwater and sets about being as different from his father as he possible can. He has decided to aid those men less fortunate than him and with the aid of his butler, Trip, and his head footman, Thomas, he sets about finding a person who can aid him in his quest… and he starts to dig into the gruesome murders of rent boys.

Silas is the young man who helps Archer, with the aid of his friend Andrej (also known as Fecker) as they describe the lives they have lived. Silas is also drawn to the handsome slightly older man, but with their positions in life it’s not something he can dwell on.

I enjoyed this story and was impressed with the descriptions of the dirty smelly East End. With short descriptions we are treated to the reality of the treatment of poor and the lives they live, which is a stark contrast to the cleaner more fragrant world of the rich aristocrats.

The story starts off slow, introducing each character, both main and secondary, in their settings, we get to know what they are like as they go about their day to day lives before they are drawn together sparking an adventure for all of them. I’m not gonna delve much into the story as I really don’t want to spoil things for readers, but I will tell you that as a mystery it’s wonderful, as a historical it’s settings are rich easily transporting you to the dank streets and the dour pubs, as a love story it’s a bit of a rollercoaster ride.

I found that I liked all the characters and that they were a perfect mix with a rich and broad dialogue. Each character has a unique personality; you become invested in their journey and follow along on the twists and turns.

I recommend this to those who love historical mysteries, interesting characters, wonderful story telling and ending that has you waiting in eager anticipation for the next book.

After years of running wild, Linc might’ve finally run out of road.

After a brutal capture at the hands of the Heathens Motorcycle Club, Linc is just trying to heal, mentally and physically. But he’s got men in his life who are complicating everything. There’s Mercy—a Havoc MC biker and the man he is falling fast for—plus an undercover ATF agent and a rogue Havoc member.

But Mercy’s keeping him at arm’s length, and Linc is spinning. In an attempt to regain his equilibrium, he heads to the bar where he first met Mercy. Night after night, he escapes Havoc bonds and continues down his merry path of mayhem . . . mainly in the hopes that Mercy will give chase.

Since Linc’s capture by his old MC, Mercy’s been dealing with the fallout of his guilt. He’s trying to give Linc space and still watch over him—all without Linc’s knowledge. But with Linc’s old job calling and a threat to Havoc MC heating up, can they make their way back together?

Devil Next Door

(Criminal Delights 02: Obsession)
by

Alex Jane

All Remy Harker wants is a fresh start.

Well, maybe that’s what he tells himself as he rolls up to his nice new house, in the nice little neighborhood, in a town where nobody knows his name.

He’s surrounded by friendly neighbors and a white picket fence. The ugly pink carpet might drive him to insanity, and he can’t stop wondering where the old lady who lived there before him died—but it’s nice.

And if he puts his mind to it, he can be anything—or anyone—he wants to be. He can be nice too.

At least, he thinks he can until he lays eyes on his next-door neighbor.

Luke Boucher is nice.

And quiet.

And perfect.

It doesn’t take long for Remy to insinuate himself into Luke’s life. A camera here, a break-in there.

It’s not really stalking if you love someone, is it?

But when Remy’s plan to make a good impression goes to hell, he ends up over his head in more ways than one. Then things aren’t quite so nice anymore.

It’s not really murder if you love someone, is it?

LOVING YOUR NEIGHBOR ISN’T SO EASY WHEN YOU’RE THE DEVIL NEXT DOOR.

Wrong Way Home

(Criminal Delights: Taken)
by

K.A. Merikan

— ONE WRONG TURN. ONE RIGHT MAN. —

Colin. Rule-follower. Future doctor. Witness to murder. Captive.
Taron. Survivalist. Mute. Murderer. Captor.

Like every other weekend, Colin is on his way home from university, but he’s taunted by the notion that he never takes risks in life and always follows the beaten path. On impulse, he decides to take a different route. Just this one time. What he doesn’t realize is that it’s the last time he has a choice.
He ends up taking a detour into the darkest pit of horror, abducted by a silent, imposing man with a blood-stained axe. But what seems like his worst nightmare might just prove to be a path to the kind of freedom Colin never knew existed.

Taron has lived alone for years. His land, his rules. He’d given up on company long ago. After all, attachment is a liability. He deals with his problems on his own, but the night he needs to dispose of an enemy, he ends up with a witness to his crime.

The last thing Taron needs is a nuisance of a captive. Colin doesn’t deserve death for setting foot on Taron’s land, but keeping him isn’t optimal either. It’s only when he finds out the city boy is gay that an altogether different option arises. One that isn’t right, yet tempts him every time Colin’s pretty eyes glare at him from the cage.

*

“When Taron looped the heavy metal collar around the slender neck and closed the padlock, his body throbbed with the excitement of knowing he owned this boy.
Was it wrong? Yes, yes it was.
Was it so, so good? Definitely.”

Themes: prepping, alternative lifestyles, disability, crime, loneliness, enemies to lovers, forced proximity, fish out of water, opposites attract, abduction, Stockholm syndrome, family issues.
Genre: Dark, thriller M/M romance

(Seven of Spades 05)
by

Cordelia Kingsbridge

It’s time to lay all the cards on the table.

Detective Levi Abrams and PI Dominic Russo are reunited and more committed to each other than ever, but they can’t truly move forward with their lives until the serial killer who’s been tormenting them is behind bars. When a secret burial site is discovered in the desert with the remains of the Seven of Spades’s earliest victims, that goal finally seems within reach.

But just as the net is tightening, the neo-Nazi militia Utopia launches their master plan with a devastating act of terror that changes the landscape of Las Vegas forever. As Levi and Dominic scramble to prevent the city’s destruction, they’re opposed by treacherous forces that propel them toward catastrophe. In the end, Levi’s fate may rest in the hands of the very killer he’s been hunting.

The race to save Sin City is on, and these players are going for broke. No matter how hopeless things seem, as long as they’re together and they’ve got a chip to play and a chair to sit in, they’re still in the game.

Some ghosts refuse to stay buried . . .

Prophet and Tom have been through the wringer more times than they can count, both as partners in the field and in life. Yet despite it all, they’ve built something great together. But now they need to protect it again: Prophet’s old nemesis, John Morse, is back and threatening everything he loves.

Prophet is driven enough to take John down alone, and with a chance to do exactly that on the table, he runs with it, risking himself in the process. But trusting Tom to help him is so much more than mission critical.

It’s the final stand, and with Tom and his team behind him, Prophet’s in for the fight of his life.

Then a figure from his past goes missing, and the consequence of an old mission rears its head. As complications and destruction mount all around them, getting out alive becomes the most important mission of their lives.

Model Bodyguard by Lissa Kasey ~ Audio Review

Title: Model Bodyguard

Series: Haven Investigations 02

Author: Lissa Kasey

Narrator: Brian Hutchison

Genre: Contemporary, Thriller, Mystery

Length: 9 hrs, 47 mins

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (4th January 2018)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: 💖💖💖💖 4 Hearts

Blurb: Things are going well for androgynous model Ollie Petroskovic, ex-Marine Kade Alme, and their business, Haven Investigations, until rock star Jacob Elias shows up in need of their services…and trouble follows.

Jacob is a playboy with a serious penchant for kink, slaves, and sex toys. He’s also Ollie’s ex – and all that implies. With the media exploiting his personal life, a stalker sending blood-soaked “gifts”, a bumbling security team, and a family he can’t trust as far as he could throw them, Jacob is in desperate need of a bodyguard for his latest tour, and Kade can’t refuse.

While Kade deals with new doubts about his partnership with Ollie and struggles with reminders of his war injuries, Jacob’s stalker escalates from blackmail and threats to murder. As Kade and Ollie work to keep Jacob safe and find the culprit behind the attack, a web of family secrets, lies, and abuse slowly emerges, leading up to a final confrontation that they might not walk away from – and that will have lasting repercussions for Kade and his relationship with Ollie.

Product Link: Audible US | Audible UK | Amazon US | Amazon UK

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Model Bodyguard is the second book in Lissa Kasey’s Haven Investigations series. This book carries on from the first book, so it is vital to have read book 1, and if you can’t remember it, a quick refresher might be a good idea. As a warning this book also has a cliffhanger which continues in book three, the audio for the third book hasn’t been released yet but for those who can’t wait it is available in ebook format.

Life continues for model-turned-PI, Ollie, and his dead brother’s best friend, ex-marine and PI, Kade. In book one Ollie and Kade became a couple but they both have some very complex and deep running issues. Kade has PTSD from his time in the marines as well as baggage from his abusive family, while Ollie suffers from an eating disorder mixed with something of an obsessive personality and anxiety. Needless to say, their baggage alone is the reason for the cliffhanger, although the ending also leads us directly into the next drama where Ollie and Kade need to fight for their lives and their relationship.

This is a complex story with complex characters. The main plot line of this book introduces Ollie’s ex, Jacob, who is a Rockstar with major problems of his own – he has a selfish family and a stalker who has started to up his game, resulting in causalities. Of course, being Ollie’s ex, Ollie and Kade both have to deal with the insecurities of Ollie being near his ex and Kade becoming bodyguard to the flirtatious Rockstar, which brings forth Ollie’s own insecurities relating to his image. Honestly, sometimes it’s hard to see whether or not these guys will make it together but together they are dynamite. The conclusion of this mystery, as I said, leads right into what will no doubt be the next action and drama fueled adventure.

The world that Lissa Kasey has created is amazing, there is so much depth to these characters and it was difficult to explain the plot without giving away any major plot points. Anyone who loves a good mystery will love this series, but it is something that you must start from the beginning. I can’t wait to get to the rest of the series.

Tuck is switching dorms. He’s had enough of his roommate’s odd hours, strange behavior, and teasing from his football teammates, who think there’s something more between them. He’s just put the last pad into his duffel bag when the campus goes on lockdown and the police swarm in.

They say that Tuck’s roommate, Sam, is a wanted man, but Tuck knows better. Sam is no criminal; he won’t even let Tuck kill spiders. Tuck takes a risk and helps Sam escape from the clutches of the authorities, and together they try to make it off the campus. As they try to evade the search parties, it becomes clear that they’re after something more than Sam; a secret project Sam’s been working on that has billion-dollar implications.

Tuck’s not sure what’s going on. He’s not sure what the truth is or who to trust. He’s not sure they’re going to make it out of this. And as the night wears on, he’s not sure how he really feels about Sam anymore. Sam is always sure about Tuck, though, and Tuck isn’t going to let him down.

(Isolation 03)
by

Taylor Brooke

War is on the horizon.

After fleeing the white-walled labyrinth where Brooklyn and her friends were caged, trained, tortured, and studied, the group of renegade Omens prepare for the fight of their lives. But an unexpected arrival from Kirin—the dangerous, secret project Juneau has kept locked away in Isolation’s main facility—complicates things.

Despite the rumors surrounding Kirin’s loyalties and capabilities, Brooklyn decides to make an alliance. Together they form a plan to rescue their friends and take down Isolation once and for all.

Julian Matsumoto is strung between two sides of his heart.

Desperate times call for desperate measures, and freedom always has a cost. Julian doesn’t know if he has what it takes to pay the price, especially if that price is Kirin’s life. But the Legacy Strain is being weaponized and they don’t have time to waste.

This is their only chance to escape Juneau Malloy for good, and Brooklyn Harper has been fighting for too long to back down now. Armed with deadly skills and a hunger for vengeance, the Omen Operatives set out on a risky mission to eradicate Isolation, contain the volatile Legacy Strain, and earn the freedom they’ve been chasing since Camp Eleven.

Blurb: An ATF agent who lives for danger finds what he craves from an outlaw biker.

It’s impossible for a one-percenter motorcycle club member to simply walk away—and no one knows that better than undercover agent Bram, who’s almost killed for trying. His cover isn’t blown—yet—but it’s only a matter of time. The Heathens won’t be satisfied until he’s dead, so he decides to lay low and heal.

But when his younger brother’s disappearance throws a wrench into his plan, Bram ends up in Shades Run, a town ruled by the notorious Havoc MC. In less than twenty-four hours, Bram finds himself at the mercy of Sweet, Havoc’s president, as he throws himself into the undercover role of a lifetime: himself. A man who’s never belonged anywhere, and who will do anything to protect his younger brother.

When finding Linc seems impossible, Bram is torn between Sweet, Linc, and revealing his true identities . . . and there appears to be no way out. Once again, he risks it all trying to save it all. Only this time he’s got no backup to save him if he falls.

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

Bram is ATF and has been undercover in one of the deadliest motorcycle gangs for close o two years. He was basically a probie and was suppose to be brought in fully. Which means getting his ass kicked, however he decided it was time to get out. To bad they caught on and kicked his ass, dead man walking. Then he got the call, his little brother was missing.

Sweet is the head leader of Havoc, a motorcycle club that was just as deadly if not more. However they also had honor. Sweet could kill when needed so why was he not wanting to kill Bram. A man looking for his brother, a member of another club who was a traitor and surprise of all, ATF.

After reading the first book I was not looking forward to this story. However it turned out better than I thought it would. It is a long drawn out book but the action made up for it. Although I will admit that the action felt a little low for what gangs or clubs usually are. Also there was the fact that this guy was law enforcement and didn’t really come off like it. It makes you wonder what truly happens with undercovers. The characters just seem a bit more fluff then actual bad guys.

There was something missing from the whole book. You have adventure mixed in with danger and kinky sex, but it just wasn’t enough to draw me in like it should have. The story did catch my attention and keep it, but it didn’t make me want to read more. I really liked Sweet and his past does give me more insight into his character but he comes off more like a old man in parts. Bram comes off as weak and not like the character he is suppose to be. I did like that he would do anything for his brother and that brought him up in my eyes.

The story itself is well told and only a few writing errors that were noticed. The pace was a little slower than I would have liked but still was much better than the first one. It is still a little dry to me but it is still a good read. However I hate to admit that I just really didn’t care for it like I should have.

Listener’s Remains

by

L. Julia

Gillen Lynch has a complicated relationship with his brother-in-law, Eduardo Sanchez. Gillen hasn’t mentioned his attraction to Eduardo; Eduardo hasn’t mentioned he’s a mind reader. Betrayed by the deception and mortified by his attraction to his sister’s spouse, Gillen decides to take it out on Eduardo by killing him.

Murdering a mind reader is no easy task, but this isn’t the first time Gillen has killed. His other victims didn’t mean anything to him, and they definitely didn’t use their dying breaths to copy their minds into Gillen’s head. Now, with no barriers between them, Gillen can’t stop Eduardo from digging up the secrets he’d hoped to take to his grave. He’s scared, powerless, and unprepared to face the fallout of his actions as he flees from both the cops and a group of mysterious pursuers who are as connected to Eduardo as he is.

With his pursuers closing in on him and Eduardo threatening to tear him apart from the inside, Gillen must overcome his self-hatred and take back his mind. If he can’t, he’ll be at the mercy of the man who has every right to want him dead.

Blurb: Paramedic Hayden Kinsella is single and the life of the party. He likes driving fast and saving lives, and he doesn’t do relationships—he does hookups. Except he wouldn’t hook up with copper Matt Deakin if he were the last guy on the planet. Hayden thinks the feeling is mutual . . . until clearing the air leads to a drunken one-night stand, which leads to something neither of them was expecting: a genuine connection.

Police officer Matt Deakin moved to Townsville to take care of his elderly grandfather. In between keeping an eye on Grandad, renovating his house, and the demands of his job, he somehow finds himself in a tentative relationship with Hayden and very slowly gets to know the damaged guy beneath the happy-go-lucky persona.

But the stressors of shift work, fatigue, and constant exposure to trauma threaten to tear Hayden and Matt apart before they’ve even found their footing together. In the high-pressure lives of emergency services workers, it turns out it’s not the getting together part that’s hard, it’s the staying together.

Review: Hayden and Matt didn’t really have a good start. Matt had given Hayden a speeding ticket and Hayden had flirted with him. Now every time they came across Hayden kept sneering at him and talking crap about him. That is until one night and they figured out that their actions had been taken wrong. Now here he was slowly getting to know the man.

Matt had thought that Hayden had flirted with him to get out of a ticket. Had he known that the man had liked him, things would have gone a little smoother. Then after several incidents going wrong, Hayden had lost his place in the world. It was going to take Matt some time, but he would get the smart ass back in place.

At first I will admit that this story didn’t really do anything for me. It has humor in it but it was mixed with a tone that didn’t do it any justice. However once I got into it, the story actually got better. I will tell you to have tissues waiting because there are some pretty strong feelings going on. Not all of those feelings have to do with their love life, but life itself. The characters are strong but I didn’t see an alpha character with them. They were more on an equal level.

I was actually quite surprised and very entertained once I got into it. I didn’t much care for the cover though, it just didn’t do the story right. It has an even pace to it but the story itself was a little dry.

Overall the story was pretty good. I can’t say that it will be read more than once though. I didn’t get a chance to read the first book, but I will be checking it out later.
