Sightline

(The Community 03)
by

Santino Hassell

Chase Payne is a walking contradiction. He’s the most powerful psychic in the Community, but the least respected. He’s the son of the Community’s founder, but with his tattoo sleeves and abrasive attitude, he’s nothing like his charismatic family. No one knows what to make of him, which is how he wound up locked in a cell on the Farm yet again. But this time, the only man he’s ever loved is there too.

Elijah Estrella was used to being the sassy sidekick who fooled around with Chase for fun. But that was before he realized the Community wasn’t the haven he’d believed in and Chase was the only person who’d ever truly tried to protect him. Now they’re surrounded by people who want to turn them against their friends, and the only way out is to pretend the brainwashing works.

With Chase playing the role of a tyrant’s second-in-command, and Elijah acting like Chase’s mindless sex toy, they risk everything by plotting a daring escape. In the end, it’s only their psychic abilities, fueled by their growing love for each other, that will allow them to take the Community down once and for all.

Genre: Contemporary, Cowboys and Western, Erotic Romance, Paranormal

Length: Novel (189 pages)

Publisher: Pride Publishing (July 11, 2017)

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 3.75 Hearts

Blurb: Rush is so deep in the closet he can’t find the door, but meeting Brian might give him the courage to step out of it.

When Brian and Rush meet in a dark alley, sparks fly. The attraction is fast and hard, but Rush is a rancher with a reputation to uphold and Brian is out and open.

Both men have secrets, including the small powers they each have, and a relationship means they might have to share. It would require Rush coming out of his closet and putting his ranch and his friendships with the people around him at risk.

For Brian, it means putting his heart on the line for a man who’s afraid of being himself. He’s been down that road before and Brian won’t go back in the closet, not even for Rush.

Each time they’re together, Rush and Brian set the air around them on fire. As they move closer, both are still holding back, still unsure of each other. One of them will have to take the first step or this thing between them will flounder.

For Rush, it’ll take a huge step and a lot of trust to risk his entire life in the small Texas town of Spring Lake. And once he’s out, there’s no going back.

For Brian, his heart isn’t the only thing at risk. If he keeps seeing Rush, he knows he might just lose his life.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Brian is a Pi and while on a stake out meets sexy Rush in alley. Instant sparks fly. There are repeated phone sex conversations which I did not care for. Rush is in the closet and it shows throughout the book. If he was that worried why did he not just stay in it. 

I felt sorry for Brian having feelings for someone who was not sure yet whether or not he could be with another man out in the open. I say tell him when you make up your mind call me then. 

While I expected this book to be better than the first it was not in my opinion. Sammi and Mitchell are in it and I liked that Brian was determined to figure out who Sammi is. I also got really irritated with all the sex scenes and the back and forth of one character making repeated mistakes and the other forgiving him. Seriously? I would have said enough was enough.

It was an o.k. read.

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Blurb: Olivier Merlo works for a dangerous man. He does what he’s told without asking questions because he needs to protect his sister and niece. When someone gives his boss trouble, Olivier does what he does best. It’s a routine hit—until the victim’s brother starts poking around.

Cody Anders left his family behind a decade ago—along with their wealth and influence—to live on his own terms. Still, he knows his twin didn’t die of a drug overdose, and he’ll do anything to find the truth. What he uncovers is a conspiracy that will topple his family and leave him staring down the barrel of a gun.

Olivier must decide if he’s going to obey orders or free himself from the curse that has guided his hand for centuries. Cody, who challenges Olivier’s notion that no one can love him, holds the key to breaking his chains. But when the truth finally comes out, it might be more than Cody can accept.

ISBN-13: 978-1-63533-768-6

Product Link: Dreamspinner Press | Amazon UK | Amazon US

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: This story did not have the same intensity as the previous books in the series to me but the never the less was just as good. Olivier’s nightmares were a glimpse into what has happened in the past though he does not know it. Cody was determined to find out what happened to his brother no matter what.

Olivier’s past and present story was heart-breaking. I admired how strong he was mentally to do what he has to do to survive for his family. 

I felt sorry for both Olivier and Cody as one was ready to walk into danger and the other wanted to protect him from his boss and father. There were a lot of players involved but I found some were not explained well enough to get a complete understanding of their role.

It was a great read that I enjoyed.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Oh my god was this book so good. Talon and his team are back when enhanced children start disappearing. Talon is not happy that Finn acts as bait to lure whoever is behind the kidnappings out. 

While all this is going on Finn is getting upset with Talon as he feels Talon does not think he can do his job. With tensions mounting between the two disasters is sure to strike. 

Talon’s abilities seem to grow when unexpectedly he starts being able to do what other team members can do. I swear there were twists and turns that had my head spinning but in a good way. There was no shortage of action, drama, suspense and mystery throughout. 

I seriously love this amazing series. I cannot wait to read more about the others on the team as well. You have to read this series.

Highly recommended.

Holden Payne has it all . . . or so he thinks. As heir to the founder of the Community—an organization that finds, protects, and manages psychics—he’s rich, powerful, and treated like royalty. But after a series of disappearances and murders rock the Community, he’s branded the fall guy for the scandal and saddled with a babysitter.

Sixtus Rossi is a broad-shouldered, tattooed lumbersexual with a man bun and a steely gaze. He’s also an invulnerable—supposedly impervious to both psychic abilities and Holden’s charms. It’s a claim Holden takes as a challenge. Especially if sleeping with Six may help him learn whether the Community had more to do with the disappearances than they claimed.

As Holden uncovers the truth, he also finds himself getting in deep with the man sent to watch him. His plan to seduce Six for information leads to a connection so intense that some of Six’s shields come crashing down. And with that comes a frightening realization: Holden has to either stand by the Community that has given him everything, or abandon his old life to protect the people he loves.

A wealthy merchant’s son seems to hold the key to Wryler’s safe if somewhat dreary future. However, the arrival of a mysterious stranger on the eve of Wryler’s betrothal sends his plans into disarray and Wryler finds himself traded off in marriage to one of the most notorious rogues in the land. 

Is Lord Aeric Rouchet the scoundrel he appears to be, or is he something much worse? Separated from his family and thrust into a strange and dangerous new life at the foreboding Gryffon Hall, Wryler must unravel the secret of his husband’s shadowed life and defeat the curse which threatens not only his growing affection for the barbarian in his bed, but the lives of everyone the Lord of Gryffon Hall is sworn to protect.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: At first I was not too sure if I wanted to read this story.  I am not a fan of anything historical and the cover is a bit off.  However I do love a good paranormal especially when the characters are two sexy men.  This is the first book by this author I have read and I must say she does have a talent.  

Wryler is a young lad who loves a good book.  He has no real standing in his family but that all changes when he is traded off to marry Lord Aeric.  This story is a bit like a prince and princess book with a monster vibe to it; a fairy tale of beauty and the beast, with Aeric being the beast. Aeric is in fact human and gryffon.  And Wryler’s family has just basically sold him to this man.  Talk about a rush.  Wryler is in fact part fae, so he does have some magic of his own.  But that fear he had at first soon turns to love.  

Aeric does look a lot like a pirate rather than a barbarian but he is in fact gentle and very caring.  He just didn’t let Wryler know that it wasn’t a curse but a blessing to be able to turn into the gryffon.  Might have come back to bite him in the ass at some point, but hey read the story.

I will also admit that the beginning of the book was a bit dull for me, so I skidded through it as fast as I could.  I actually liked the rest of the story a bit more than the beginning.  Although I still don’t like the historical part of it, which might have been the reason I didn’t like the story as much as I should have.  

The heat between the two men was off the charts.  I actually found that I did like Wryler quite a bit more than the others.  That might come from the fact that he was a geek when it came to books.  It is a fun little story that you might like though I can’t see myself reading it more than once.  It does have a humor to it that makes it pretty good and if your into historical, paranormal and fantasy type stories with humor and a bit of danger, then this will be for you.

Lochlann by Andrea Speed

Genre: Mystery, Suspense, Urban Fantasy

Length: Novel (200 pages)

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (May 22, 2017)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Blurb: Violence has been Lochlann O’Connor’s companion since he was born into a family of old-school Irish terrorists. From there he is recruited into Alpha, a secret government agency dedicated to fighting terrorism—with extreme prejudice. Lochlann’s bravery, efficiency, ruthlessness, and the natural deadeye aim that lets him hit anything that moves, quickly make him one of the shadowy organization’s most valued operatives.

Cas Vega joins Alpha because it’s marginally better than a prison sentence. He’s a former drug cartel assassin—or at least that’s his story. But Lochlann is suspicious. Despite an irrational and overwhelming attraction to Cas, Lochlann has questions, and they soon lead to a deeper and deadlier mystery. What is Alpha’s true purpose, and why does it seem they want to eliminate Lochlann?

Lochlann and Cas must work together to get to the bottom of Alpha’s scheme and escape it—and all while Cas keeps secrets that could cost him his life if they’re revealed. But it’s not an alliance that can last. Duty turns the men into enemies, even while fate compels them into each other’s arms. Before they can contemplate which will prevail, they must figure out how to survive.

ISBN-13: 978-1-63533-395-4

Product Link: https://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/books/lochlann-by-andrea-speed-8493-b

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: I loved this addition to the series however it was slightly different as Lochlann’s character never acknowledged the rage until the end which is different from the other books. This book focused on the present and glanced over the past. Lochlann is in a secret group called Alpha. He believes he on the good side.

Things become strange when he starts having doubts about the group. New recruits are brought in and Lochlann finds himself attracted to one named Cas. Cas was in with the drug cartel. But there is much more to this man that most see. Danger is all around and one misstep could mean both their lives when they decide to work together.

Mysterious, tense and at times has a menacing air about the story. I loved how the story was told and flowed. It felt as though I was actually there witnessing what was taking place. Both characters had secrets that were eventually revealed that added an element of mystery that I wanted to solve. 

However, I feel as though the story is incomplete. The questions about who is Alpha remained unanswered as well as who is “cleaning up” afterwards. I felt disappointed in this regard but overall it was a great read.

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 3.75 Hearts

Blurb: Gabriel Ingram is running from his past. It’s common knowledge at the college where he teaches that he’s a former CIA technical analyst, but no one knows the things he really did—or about the rage and bloodlust that are his constant companions. He’s holding on to his normal life with both hands, but he knows someday he’ll lose his grip.

Lucas Craig is a social worker studying to become a family therapist. For reasons Lucas can’t understand, the normally reclusive Professor Ingram takes an interest in him, and Lucas secretly hopes their friendship might become more.

Then Eric, Lucas’s roommate, disappears. Lucas is frantic. The police are no help. With nowhere else to turn, Lucas begs Gabriel for his expertise.

What starts as a simple errand to help a friend becomes a journey into a violent world of gangs and human trafficking—one that will bring Gabriel face-to-face with the forces intent on stealing his soul. But Lucas might be the one who can save him—if Gabriel can get them out alive.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: I truly enjoyed this series until this book. Where was the action, danger and intense passion? Answer is nowhere. Professor Ingram is ex CIA. He has been living his life peacefully while keeping the killing rage under control. 

Enter student Lucas. Lucas has secret fantasies for Gabriel but does not believe the professor sees him until Gabriel starts giving him coffee. The so called relationship felt forced to me. I mean Gabriel did not want anything to do with Lucas even after he went to him for help about his missing friend. 

I was also disappointed by the lack of action when it came to saving the friend. It seemed over just as it began which was sad to me. I felt this story could have been so much better than it was.

Good read.

US Marshal Jaeger Tripp is assigned to the Federal Witness Protection Program. The hurt and destruction he’s seen—along with protecting criminals who are only cooperating with the authorities to keep themselves out of jail—have left him with a bleak and jaded view of both life and people. His current assignment is Wren O’Riley, a computer wizard who witnessed a high-profile cartel hit.

To Jaeger, Wren is the same as any other job. He must protect him long enough to get him to testify at trial, and his personal feelings have no place in his work and must be set aside. But that’s easier said than done. On the run and fighting for their lives, Jaeger and Wren can’t help but grow closer. And Jaeger can’t help seeing beyond Wren’s nerdy exterior to a man who might be just what Jaeger needs to settle his soul and capture his heart—if they survive long enough to get that chance.

He doesn’t see much hope for things to get back to the way they used to be, and he’s bored and restless as he waits out the time until he can return to the city and university. All of that changes when he meets local boy Bobby, and the connection between them is instant. Within a few days, Oakley is ready to walk away from everything to stay with Bobby.

Review: Oakley and his family are struggling to deal with the grief they feel after Oakley’s sister’s death. The family rents a cottage as a way to get away for a while. While at the cottage Oakley meet Bobby who is friendly yet secretive. The two strike up a friendship.

I really liked that despite his mother ignoring Oakley that Oakley found someone to confide in. The real stunner was discovering who Bobby is. I did not expect that, it was a great surprise.

For a short read it was a really great story.
