Review: I must say I was a little at a loss with this story as the MC is a female and I’m an mm reader.

But as the story progressed I enjoyed it. Elsa was simply adorable. The professor’s gang get themselves in a pickle and are captured and only Elsa can rescue them.

This is a fast paced short and sweet story with plenty of action and suspense as is fitting an adventure series. Really good addition to the series.

Great read.

Review: The gang is back for more adventure in this exciting addition to the series. Caro wants the piece of the clock to change time. He will stop at nothing from attaining the knowledge he seeks to achieve his goal.

Exciting, adventurous and danger are all in abundance in this fifth installment. The gang must stop Caro, but Caro is on a mission no matter the cost. Fathom’s Five finds themselves in precarious predicaments to save time itself from a madman.

I truly enjoyed this action packed installment. Danger is in abundance as well as sexy times in between the adventures the group are involved in. A wonderful thriller/adventure in the series.

Review: Jake and Shane go on an adventure to find the elixir of life and immortality before it falls into the wrong hands. Though I’m used to whole gang being in each book it was a nice change to focus on a few characters at a time.

I liked that romance seems to blossom but in each book it also appears elusive. There are still plenty of sexy times to be had as the two continue on with their mission. I enjoyed the story and it’s many elements as well as the characters themselves.

Great read.

Review: The gang is on the case of a missing flawless diamond that is cursed. This adventure the gang through several different amazing cities while on the hunt. I found it to be a lively action packed adventurous tale that left me on the edge of my seat.

I really liked that each of the five were introduced and that their skills and background were included. The characters seemed to come alive as the story progressed leaving the reader wanting more and more. You will be holding your breath, gasping, and sitting on the edge of your seat throughout.

Can’t wait to see what happens next. Simply an amazing book that definitely should be read. I loved it.

Review: Some secrets should stay buried…

Imagine if you will, having a few drinks then accompanying the gorgeous guy at the bar back up to his room for some mind-blowing sex. Then waking up in a park, in the arms of an Angel statue, buck ass naked with no memory of how you got there. That is just a bad day all around. It gets better though, when said gorgeous guy goes missing.

Zach Taylor is at the top of his game at his firm. He’s young, successful and single, has the world at his fingertips. That lovely evening I just mentioned leaves him frazzled and fraying, trying to remember. Things go from bad to worse when questioning eyes fall on him. And then an old lady with a box and a couple of tears sends Zach down a spiraling staircase toward a past he has only briefly remembered in his dreams.

Nate Shaw is big, brooding, sexy and oh so charming. His blue eyes and blinding white teeth go from menacing to sexy too quickly for my liking, but it definitely got Zach’s attention. Hold up in a basement, waiting out a snow storm, the two keep warm the old-fashioned way. Shared body heat. The thing is, Nate either has the best or the worst timing imaginable. He blows into Zach’s life right when everything is falling apart.

Wow. This book kind of blew my mind. I opened it with the intention to read a chapter or two between loads of laundry and, two hours later I read ‘The End’ and my mind is still spinning.

Knight just took me on a journey through the twisted mind of a mad man, and the uncertain mind of another that thinks he’s going mad. I figured a couple of things out early on, I wouldn’t say predictable, I’m just an avid crime story watcher so the clues were screaming at me. That being said, I have to wonder if Knight didn’t leave those clues on purpose, bread crumbs if you will, to take my attention off the truth.

This was a murder mystery full of twists and turns. Right about the time you think you have it all figured out, you really don’t. So well written that even at the very end, two pages left to go, there was another twist that had me holding my breath. Be warned, there is some darkness in this story, murder, madness, mayhem and pure evil. Knight’s imagination is both fantastic, and terrifying.

So if you are looking for a book that you can sink your teeth into, a book that will hold your attention from start to finish, a story so engrossing you can’t look away as you read through your fingers… well then, this book will certainly do.

The domineering actress, Dominique Darlington, has vanished without a trace, the opening night of the theater’s new production of The Snake Charmer’s Slave is now in jeopardy, and six suspects are about to have the pleasure of meeting Buck Baxter, Private Detective, as he investigates whether there’s a killer on the loose… or a phantom at the opera?

Could it be the handsome leading man, Errol Hemingway, who’s responsible for the disappearance of his leading lady… or perhaps it’s that sweet, doe-eyed understudy Olivia Overton? Is it the theater owner himself, the tall and mysterious Raja Khan who has committed the crime… or the show’s investor, the autocratic aristocrat Serafina Somerset? Or is it possible that the meek and mild stage manager Stanley Small, or the flamboyant and frustrated director Barnabas Blake, are guilty?

And what of Buck’s romance with playboy millionaire Holden “Harry” Hart? Will Buck get a backstage pass to access all areas of his one true love… or will this be the final curtain for Buck and Harry?

Follow the clues, and you might just solve… the mystery of the disappearing divas!

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Picture this…

High above Wilde City, Howard Hart flies one of his airships through the bright, morning sky. Only to find his son, heir to the Hart fortune, butt ass naked on his balcony with his lover, Buck Baxter Private Investigator extraordinaire, just as naked. Holding his spent lover in his arms. The tension is palpable. As if Buck needed another headache today.

First he’s very rudely woke by his assistant Stella who can best be described as a foul-mouthed dame that likes to “borrow” her bosses pipe and smoke all his pot! Then there is the new case at the theater where the leading lady disappeared into a puff of fog and black feathers. Yes, I said feathers.

From the start, something is amiss, but Buck has a hard timing putting his finger on the miss since he’s having to play good cop to Stella’s slightly hysterical bad cop. The theater seems to be alive with malcontent and mysteries. The playbill for the show is a substitute suspect list as Buck and Stella try to navigate their way through costumes, cranky actors, a pretentious backer and a very cranky snake. It doesn’t help that Buck’s focus is divided between the case and his now uncertain relationship with Harry.

This was just a fast, fun read. I love this 1920’s era world Knight has created as the backdrop, with these theatrical characters that breathe life into the story. I think Stella is my favorite, I just love the way she talks, like a twenties harlot. I picture a young Mae West while I’m reading her and I can just see her at the juke joint with her feather boa, glittery flapper dress, that long cigarette holder, or in Stella’s case, Buck’s pipe! I picture her wearing a way too long string of fake pearls that she could wrap around someone’s neck and choke the living shit out of them if they pissed her off.

Then there is the dual mystery of the story that kept it a little intense for the reader. There were little clues dropped throughout the dialogue if you were paying attention while reading, that made the suspects identity clearly obvious, but I didn’t realize that until the identity was revealed. That was very enjoyable.

Then there is the strain on the relationship between Buck and Harry unfolding in the background. The story flowed well and steady from start to nearly the finish, with a big finale that literally had me sitting up straight, freaking out just a little bit.

All’s well that ends well, that’s all I’m going to say. If you are a fan of slapstick mystery, Columba, the roaring twenties… grab yourself a copy of this little ditty, I think you’ll approve. I caution that you read the first book if you haven’t yet, otherwise you won’t understand or appreciate some important events and characters within this story.

Grab your pipes, pour yourself a glass of gin and sit back and enjoy Buck’s current comical caper, as he tries to solve the mystery of the Disappearing Divas! And try hard not to get caught with his pants down by his boyfriends dad again either.

Blurb: “When the going gets tough, the tough get going—so start your engines!”

Once in a while, everyone falls on hard times. Every year it seems the cost of living goes up, business slows down and money’s just too tight to mention. But for old Clyde, ever-increasing debts have forced him to turn to a notorious loan shark, Tony Trimboli, just so he can keep the doors to his auto shop open and make sure his two hard-working employees—Dean ‘Hutch’ Hutchinson and Jensen Rivers—are able to pay their own rent and make ends meet.

Now the time has come for Clyde to pay up, or else the troublesome Trimboli Triplets—Tony’s three trigger-happy sons—will not only take Clyde’s business from him… they’ll burn it to the ground.

For Hutch and Jensen, there’s only one way to raise the money in time to save Clyde’s livelihood—win the perilous Reaper’s Rally, an illegal two-day race across the scorching desert with a cool $50,000 cash waiting for the first car to cross the finish line.

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s time to buckle up and start your engines! The race is on to save not only the auto shop but each other’s lives, as Hutch and Jensen blaze a trail of turbo-charged testosterone and high-speed action across the burning California desert in Drive Shaft 2: Between a Rock and a Hard Place.

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Jensen and Hutch are settling into being a couple, moving in together, Jensen is even painting over Hutch’s horrible wallpaper. It’s very blissfully normal. Until a local thug and his comes knocking at the shop, wanting the money Clyde borrowed back, with a hefty amount of interest. In order to help the man they have both come to care for like a father, Jensen and Hutch decide to do what they do best, drive.

For two men that went from zero to sixty in their relationship, the specifics of this race will test the boundaries of that relationship. If they stand a chance of winning, they are about to get a crash course in communication and trust. The goal of the race at the start is to win so they can bail Clyde out and save the ship.

It becomes a race for their lives as the Trimboli Triplets do anything and everything possible to sabotage Jensen and Hutch from winning. When the troublesome twosome shows they are stronger and smarter than the Triplets initially thought, they resort to deadly measures to win.
This book was full of suspense, action, and passion as Jensen and Hutch not only navigates their way through a dangerous and deadly race. They are still learning to navigate their way through each other.

Through a snake pit, a dangerous cave, almost drowning and a spooky graveyard capped off by some hot, steamy, paint peeling sex on the hood of the Viper, these two are definitely getting more comfortable in their relationship. I could have done without the constant mentioning of the age difference, which is only six years, and Jensen forever referred to as the young Texan. But overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the edge of my seat action that ran from start to finish in this book.

There was a little sneak peak at the end of this book for book three, and I am so excited for the possibility of threesome. Can’t wait to see how much trouble Jensen and Hutch can strum up in Russia, with a certain Russian.

A must read for anyone that loves an adrenaline rush and some page burning romance.

Review: Short, Sexy and Steamy… why yes, that is my three favorite colors. And now, if you please… buckle your seat belt, it’s going to be a bumpy ride!

Jensen Rivers came to work at his uncle’s auto shop looking to stay out of trouble and work on cars. But trouble is already there, ready and waiting, in the form of the big, brooding and oh so sexy Hutch. The mutual attraction is obvious, and after Hutch challenges Jensen to a race, their adrenaline is pumping, and that attraction lights like a stick of dynamite. Hutch does things to Jensen’s body that should be illegal, and just might be in some states, but night after night, he keeps coming back for more.

When Jensen accidentally discovers a part of Hutch’s past that he’d rather kept private, Hutch explodes on an assumption and raises the stakes of the next race. Can Hutch see beyond his anger fueled by loss and see that holding on to the past threatens the hope of a future with Jensen?

This was definitely an action packed, thrill ride of sex, domination, and a kinky need for speed. I was completely engaged from start to finish, even if there were a few eye rolling moments. I was a little shell shocked by the end and then the ending was anticlimactic. I expected after the acute attention to details and descriptive from Jensen and Hutch’s previous encounters that the big bang would receive the same attention.

What I got was a sort of fade to black ending, that was frustrating. And oh my good lord god, the scene with the jack, that scene alone is worthy of a Darwin Award. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if that is where Knight got the idea. There should be a, “Do NOT try this at home boys and girls” warning for that scene.

As I said though, the attention to detail, the descriptives, and the character development was spot on and I can’t wait for the next book with these two tearing up more asphalt, and tearing into each other.

If you like, action packed stories, two typical alpha males trying to one up each other for the right to dominate that evening, and kink then this is the perfect filthy little story for you.

Blurb: Travel writer Joe Jordan hasn’t been home to New York since his boyfriend broke up with him. Instead, he’s hopped from hotel to hotel. Collecting pens like a child in a fairytale might leave a trail of breadcrumbs hoping to find his way back.

But now he has an assignment, an article titled “5 Ways to Rediscover New York.” Being back on his home turf is daunting—until he meets Claude Desjardins, a gay romance translator staying in his hotel who, after a night of near passion, leads Joe on a treasure hunt through Manhattan, writing clues on Joe’s skin using hotel pens.

But it isn’t just New York Joe needs to rediscover.

Review: Joe Jordan has been miserably single for a while, travelling the world, calling random hotels home. He loves his job, even if the constant travelling did cost him his boyfriend. After losing those roots, the home and the life he shared with Shawn, he hasn’t planted new ones, he hasn’t wanted to. Until now.

Joe first sees Claude in the lobby of his hotel and is drawn to his French accent. It’s almost endearing when Joe notices that Claude has the same obsession that Joe himself has. Collecting hotel pens. There is an attraction between them that Joe is hesitant to explore, for many reasons. But he still finds himself meeting Claude at the Empire State Building the next day, and Claude proceeds to show the New Yorker his city through a different set of eyes.

This was just a fast, fun, sweet and romantic read. The flow of the story was steady from start to finish, and that was just about the sexiest bubble bath ever! Claude and Joe both have lost someone they cared for in their lives, they’ve been alone a long time and so it all seems like kismet when they meet and fall for each other in the same instant. But Claude is determined to romance Joe, writing clues for the next stop on their date on Joe’s body with one of their hotel pens, sending Joe on a romantic scavenger hunt through a New York he has missed all these years.

I kept thinking of Sleepless in Seattle when I read this story, there were several similarities. This is a must read for my fellow hopeless romantics!

Reviewer: Tams
Blurb: Welcome to Wilde City, 1924—a crane on top of every skyscraper, a party in every club, a romance on every dance floor, a shooting every night, a broken heart on every street corner and a dirty secret behind every window with the curtain drawn. It’s the kind of town that keeps Buck Baxter, private detective, in business.

For despite his fondness for a cold gin and a pipe stuffed with cannabis, Buck is the best gumshoe in Wilde City. Why? Because he has rules: never make friends, never make enemies, and never ever fall in love. That is until the day, playboy nightclub owner Holden Hart, swings into town. He’s suave, he’s charming, he’s chivalrous… and he’s exactly the kind of man who Buck will break all the rules for.

From the romance of the Rainbow Palace atop the Wilde City Tower, to the dazzling debauchery of the gentlemen’s parlor The Velvet Viper—from the history surrounding the sinister convent on the hill better known Hell’s Bells, to the lantern-lit opium barge, The Peking Empress, run by the mystical Madame Chang—could Buck be about to unravel the greatest mystery of them all…

The mystery of love?

Review: For everyone that is going to miss the Gin & Jazz series with the final book coming out in just a couple of days, we have a respite! And dare I say… Short, Sexy and Steamy… my three favourite colors!!

Picture this… a sex on a stick, pot smoking, gay private dick in 1920’s New York surrounded by glitz, glamour and the Dick Tracy version of an assortment of Speak Easies. Welcome to Wilde City!
Buck Baxter, private eye extraordinaire, doesn’t do friends or commitments. He doesn’t make enemies either and he is good at his job, which is why he stays in business and avoids any hassles. But his latest job is about to turn his fly under the radar life upside down.Just follow a guy whose wife wants to know if he’s cheating, seems easy enough, right? Then why does he end up staring down the barrel of a gun?? But that is a story for later.

Holden Hart is debonair and stunning with his slicked back blonde hair and movie star good looks. Hart is new in town and the owner of the newest nightclub, the place to be as it were. Buck is enamoured with the man from the first time he lays eyes on him, and Hart seems to not only recognize, but also reciprocate the need. He sets about trying to get to know the brash private eye. But Buck is just that, private. He doesn’t date, especially not charming playboys. Too bad the stiffy in his pants didn’t get that memo.

This was a fast, fun, thrill ride of a story. Knight went into great detail setting the stage for this fascinating new world he’s building around Buck Baxter and the other wildly creative characters that were featured. There were a few flashbacks told in the form of memories as Buck remembers his troubled childhood and the friend he lost. There were several twists and turns along the way, that kept me on my toes, kept me guessing until the very end. And that scene in the bar with the ‘new Nick’ was damn near toe curling.

You have to grab a copy of this one and get familiar with Buck and Holden and the twins and Stella, and so many more neat characters so you’ll be ready for the next instalment. I’m anxious to see what Knight pulls out next for Buck Baxter, the Love Detective.

Blurb: Valentine’s Day has long been a difficult day for widow and single mom Kate Madsen. But this Valentine’s Day is going to be more than just difficult… it’s going to be downright awkward. For Kate’s only child, seven-year-old Mikey just stunned the small town of Elk’s Ridge by writing a Valentine’s Day card to someone name Bobby Bryson.

While the card sends teachers into a tizzy and turns Mikey’s grandfather into a grumpy old man, Kate discovers over the course of one afternoon that she and her young son are about to begin a journey of questions, confrontations and hopefully one day… happiness.

In the meantime, will Mikey and his Mom make it through this Valentine’s Day? Will the innocent intentions of one young boy change the narrow minds of a stubborn, small town? And just who exactly is the object of Mikey’s affections—Bobby Bryson?

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Seven-year-old Mikey Madsen is so excited about Valentine’s Day. Until his teacher, principal and grumpy grandfather see the card he made. In the course of one afternoon, little Mikey and his mom learn a lot about themselves as well as the people that surround them.

The teacher throws a fit and her along with the principal visit Mikey and his mom that afternoon after school. Kate Madsen is a little surprised when she sees her son’s Valentine, but she doesn’t talk down to him like everyone else. She just wants to help her son make a cupcake for his Valentine. Throughout the day visitors come and go. The handy man is out back fixing Mikey’s tree house, the postman has eyes for single mom Kate, and Mikey’s grandfather has to get his two cents in the mix.

Kate has to assure her son she loves him just the way he is, and give that two cents back to her father in law. And at the end of the day, mom and son will both have had a very memorable valentine’s day!

This novella was just adorable. In the end, it was Bobby himself along with Kate’s support of her son’s announcement that completed the story. We are all born who we are, it drives me crazy when I read someone else saying, “You choose to be gay.” When referring to someone who is LGBT. This story is the perfect example of why that statement is entirely inaccurate.

If you want something fast, fun and absolutely adorable this book is absolutely perfect!

Reviewer:   GiGi

Review: So what is the politically correct way to deal with individuals infected with the zombie virus? And what do you say when your boy brings one home for dinner?

Answers to these questions and more are found in this funny and PUNny short story about a zombie apocalypse. This has plenty of slapstick and queer as folk, humor. Plenty of vomiting, blood gore and mad cows, and might I admit, yes, sympathy for brain-eating zombies! There is little to no sexual content, just innuendo, in fact, I think my tween son would laugh at this book. It contains his type of humor.

It’s what I would expect for a book about Zombies from these two!

And as two best friends become young men, true love washes over them like the sea upon the sand.

But life is full of challenges and change, and if Jad is to discover who he really is, he must piece together his ancestral past, his dream-filled present and his uncertain future to become the man he was always destined to be.

Through water and fire; through love and loss; through the days of youth to the stories of the world’s oldest living culture, journey across the heart of Australia—

—to discover what’s in the heart of one young man.

Reviewer:   Tams

Review:  This story was simple but beautiful. Erotic but tasteful and well worth the read!

Jad and Luke have been best friends since they were children in their exquisite community by the ocean in Australia. They swim with dolphins, dive for pearls and live life to the fullest. As they grow up to together they form a bond and a love for one another that is unmistakable and unbreakable. But they graduate and go off to college soon and Jad is leaving for Sydney to go to medical school. Absence makes the heart grow fonder though, right?

While at school Jad meets Brandon, a fellow med student who is also gay. Struggling with being away from his home, family and Luke; Jad is confused with his feelings for Brandon. He loves Luke and he’s only ever wanted to be with him. But there is an undeniable attraction to Brandon. When a call comes that Luke has gone missing, Jad is on the first plane back home to find his friend, and lover? Still confused with his feelings, Jad has to decide between his dream of being a doctor and travelling the world helping people, going back to Brandon. Or staying where he knows in his heart he belongs, with Luke.

The Pearl is a beautiful and emotional coming of age story with one hell of a background. The land and the culture are just as much a part of the story as Jad’s journey through life. He’s always surrounded by love. Be it from his family, Luke or Brandon. There was never a transition from Jad and Luke as friends to Jad and Luke as lovers, it was seamless. And when they finally come together one night on the beach they’ve grown up on, it’s absolutely perfect. Luke gives Jad his pearl he got that day during their dive. Jad carries that pearl with him through everything from that day forward. They come full circle years later on that beach, with each other and the pearl.

This is a must read for my fellow lovers of romance. There are some emotionally charged, sexy guy on guy scenes as well, bonus!

Reviewer:   Tams

Review:  Guess Who’s Coming at Dinner is more comedy than sexy M/M Romance with some fantastic one-liners and an absolutely hysterical chapter around the dinner table. 19-year-old Chandler has crushed on Zane for as long as he can remember. When Zane is infected by the recent zombie pandemic, it doesn’t stand in the way of true love. Knight and Day weave a tale that is so farfetched it’s actually believable with GWCAD. Chandlers ongoing commentary will have you giggling and Zane with steal your heart (figuratively speaking, of course). Flesh eating zombies, mad cows and sexiness are kept to a minimum in this first part of Zombie Boyz.

Surviving Sin City is more the traditional zombie story, with two consenting adult males pounding each other into oblivion as an added bonus! Cooper is a Brit on vacation in Las Vegas when he finds himself smack dab in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. While trying to get out of Vegas and back to England he runs into Kaleb, an American trying to stay alive and hide while he looks for his brother. The sexual chemistry is evident from the start and it doesn’t take long for Kaleb to find a safe place to bury himself, if you catch my drift. Can these two find Kaleb’s brother as well as safety while surrounded by hoards of zombies that get smarter with each brain they eat? This second story of Zombie Boyz is definitely more hard-core with lots of blood, guts, brains and some sexy guy on guy action when Cooper and Kaleb redefine the term “mile high club”!

Ghouls Gym is full on zombie bloody and scary. There is a wee bit of sex and a whole lot of naked men throughout the story. A manipulated strain of a virus goes rogue resulting in a gym full of naked, horny, gay zombies. There wasn’t nearly enough sex in this part for me, and although I loved the concept that Klune and Arvin were aiming for the story was slightly chaotic and disjointed. Ghouls Gym is “B” horror movie meets gay movie.

I’d recommend fans of the M/M genre give this one a go. If you like zombie stories as well that is a definite plus! I’d love to see a full story for Chandler/Zane and Cooper/Kaleb, sadly I’d have to pass on Uly and Jake.

Review: Jon Fox is a private detective who has a checkered past. His family’s history has left its mark on him and it’s about to take a second bite. Fox is approached to find a man by a nice old lady who wishes revenge on the mystery man.  it leads him to Tucker Wilder, a screenwriter who is hoping to write a story of lost love. They are thrown together in a mystery where secrets and lies are revealed… about their own families.

Wow, mystery, thrills, danger, albino alligators, murder, brutal fights and an unwelcome love or is it? Fox lands right in the middle of family drama and hidden secrets without even trying.  Trying to get to the bottom of an old lady’s request leads him to Tucker; which leads to danger and murder. Tucker just wants to write a hit screenplay, when he inadvertently stumbles across a mob hit.  Being rescued by Fox is a blessing, until they both stumble across hidden secrets from the past and a confrontation that might rip them apart.

Well, I never saw half of that coming and the story twists are exciting and some are unexpected. Jon is a playboy character who wins you over with his devil-may-care attitude.  The only people he really cares about are his family.  When he meets Tucker it throws him for a loop. Tucker is a much more frivolous character.  He has his eye on one thing and that’s returning to L.A. with a hit screenplay under his belt.  He over-reacts in dangerous situations and I dare say is a bit of a drama queen. Together, they have an explosive time with hardly a minute safe from danger, people coming out of the woodwork and becoming involved in the mystery and new questions arising. Each character brings something new to the story, adding more mystery and questions to the mix, leaving you reeling as more twists come into play.

The opening scene in the book has you hooked and it’s a rollercoaster ride that you don’t want to get off. Although I loved the storyline and the twists, I do have to admit that at times Tucker got right up my nose with his dramatic outpourings.  Fox I really liked and his unmitigated anger was easy to relate to. Although there was one major arc throughout the book there are also two others that have left me with questions.  One of them will hopefully be the main storyline for the next book.  But, the last one I can’t help wonder if it will be left unanswered. We don’t get a happily ever after in this story, but it is left wide open for a reconnecting romance.

I have to recommend this to those who love mysteries, danger, brutal fights, swampy danger, secrets unfolded, hot sex, a complex love story and an ending that leaves you panting for more.
