Blurb: Cash is a car mechanic with a secret. Head down, sleeves up, he hides from the past as much as his shattered heart, until a reluctant stumble into a Tottenham bar ends in the one night stand of his dreams.

Hunt saboteur Rae can’t believe his luck when he wakes up the next morning. Cash is gorgeous, and the hottest hook up he’s ever had. He doesn’t expect to see him again, until a twist of fate lands him on Cash’s doorstep a few months later.

United by a cause that’s broken Cash before, they are drawn together. They have more in common than they ever imagined, but with Cash haunted by the past, and Rae so tangled in the present, it’s not long before love isn’t enough to keep them alive.

Review: Cash is the second book in Garett Leigh’s series Lucky. This book focuses on a different couple and although the couple of the first book (Lucky and Dominic) feature heavily throughout this book, this does work as a standalone 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.

I feel that my review for this book is going to be rather short and to the point, mostly because although I liked and enjoyed the story I really found it hard to connect to the characters properly. I’m not going to wait until the end of the review either to get give my conclusions. Therefore, I didn’t really fall in love with the guys, despite the fact I wanted to see a HEA. This is probably compounded (and directly influences) the fact that at times I felt that the story was a tad too long and I just wanted the story to hurry up.

The story is about Cash and Rae. The guys meet one night, have a one-night stand which leaves both of them with a mountain of emotion which seems easier to just ignore (so, yes, there is a significant helping of miscommunication in this book and that tends to frustrate me). However, Cash’s past life and Rae’s current activities bring them back together.

Rae is active in a hunt saboteur group, i.e. a group that protests and disrupts hunting parties that chase live animals, most common that in England seems to be fox hunts. I suppose they are eco-warriors, against animal cruelty. His group are in trouble and so he is sent to find some old saboteurs that left the game, in the hope of getting experienced help concerning some major hunting activities. He didn’t realise that the Ciaran that he was tracking down is Cash, who hates his real name. Cash has nothing against the sabs, after all he was one of them, but it is his confusing feelings for Rae that draw him back in. The danger and mystery culminate to events that could kill Cash.

As I said earlier, although I enjoyed the story and I will stick around for the final good, I didn’t feel a deep connection to the characters. This is good for people that like an action, contemporary romance with a couple of ordinary guys.

Blurb: Sebastian Volkov, a fox shifter raised among werewolves, ran from everything he ever loved after a brutal attack that left him fearing his own shadow. That night a single kiss saved his life and left him with fantasies of a man whose face he couldn’t remember. When Sebastian’s car breaks down in a small Washington town, he meets an Alpha werewolf who reminds him vaguely of a stranger’s kiss.

A year ago Liam Ulrich, Alpha of the Northern Cascade’s Pack, shared a magic filled kiss with a virtual stranger, the infamous Witchblood child of the most powerful werewolf in the world. Since that night, Liam has been waiting for Sebastian to find his way home. Liam knows that Sebastian doesn’t trust easily, or at all, so he’s going to have to give his prickly mate time and space.

The past Sebastian tried to escape still stalks him and slowing down gives it time to catch up.
When the werewolves’ ultimate enemy rises up to cast its shadow over them all, Sebastian realizes he will have to stop running or risk losing everything…. including his hope of a future with Liam.

Edit: Edition updated to reflect minor character changes, grammatical corrections and a removal of about 500 words.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: I really enjoyed this story about Sebastian and Liam. Sebastian is witchblood with kitsune in him as well. The story starts with him about to die after a brutal attack and a mysterious stranger saves him. Years later he meets the stranger again but does not remember him right away.

This story had a lot going on in it. I loved the suspense and mystery surrounding Sebastian. But I will admit to wanting to know what happened to Nicky for sure instead of Sebastian guessing. That was never answered.

A mix of drama, suspense and action this story delivers an interesting story to be sure. I will admit to being lost a couple of times throughout as it seemed to jump from one thing to another out of the blue aside from that it was a good intense beginning to a series.

Good read.

Kicked out by his parents as a kid for being gay, closeted in the army for fifteen years, body wrecked by an explosion that cost him his job, he isn’t the best bet for any kind of relationship. Even a fake one.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Aaron hires a cyber security guy, Finlay, to help against the attack on his online business. Finlay for his part has issues of his own but is determined to stop the attack. While trying to flush out the culprit the two grow closer and sparks begin to fly.

I loved that both men had their own issues and were not perfect. The easy way they talked was a bonus instead of the normal angst or tension between MC’s in most books. I liked the way the story progressed.

The mystery and suspense added an extra layer of surprise to the book.

Great read.

Blurb: Omega Milan Pryor knows his duty. He must travel North through the continent towards the snow, the cold, and his new betrothed. They say that Lord Alpha Raphael Ledford, the man he is to marry, is as artic as the weather of his land. But Milan has always been an optimist. Perhaps he might find friendship in the arranged marriage. Even love.

It doesn’t take long for Milan to realize that all the rumours about Lord Raphael are true. Reclusive, distant, frigid. Milan finds himself unwelcome in what he must now call his new home. He’s used to fighting for what he wants—but can he survive a husband as cruel as Lord Raphael?

Being bonded to one who rejects you is a painful thing. Will Milan be able to win his husband’s regard? What terrible secret is Lord Raphael keeping, and will Milan be able to discover it before it’s too late?

Or will Milan perish along with his heart?

Review: Honeythorn is a totally and absolutely wonderful romance by Mariana Viviancos. I’ve never heard or read anything by the author before, however, I have a bit of weakness at times for Alpha/Omega type mating/male pregnancy books. So that was my starting point.

I’ll also quickly point out that this a great book if you are into other or all of the following: steampunk, regency romances and omegaverse stories (i.e. m-preg stories which does not involve shape shifters). Before I got into MM romances, the only MF romances I would read were historical romances, particularly Georgian and Victorian regency books and this was a massive flashback to many of those books. With a brooding Lord as an MC it also isn’t hard to think of some of the brooding heroes in books such as Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice or Wuthering Heights.

I find Honeythorn difficult to classify. It’s steampunk, and it does have a lot of the hallmarks of regency romance. But it is set in an alternate universe where there is one massive continent. There was no actual male pregnancy, but the world that has been created by Vivancos allows for the distinct possibility (does that mean there is more to look forward to?!).

The characters in this story are Lord Alpha Rafael Ledford and Omega Milan Pryor. Milan has been sent up north from the south of the massive continent to meet his new husband, Lord Ledford. Theirs is an arranged marriage, quite common in the world that has been created. It is a marriage that Milan has a lot of optimism for. His hopes, though, are dashed quickly and Milan and his mate’s rejection leads to immense pain. Pain that Milan feels he can not approach his husband about because Lord Ledford has made it quite clear that while he wants Milan comfortable (maybe), he isn’t about to try to make the relationship work. Ultimately, endangering Milan’s life as the bond is neglected.

Lord Rafael is a complex character. He has one disastrous mating, which has led him to close off his heart and emotions completely. Although he accept the arranged marriage/mating, he is not going out his way for his new husband. To Lord Rafael it is all a terrible convenience. However, this brooding alpha male has a lot to learn when it comes to omegas, marriages and love.

Living On A Dare

(Shore Thing 01)
by

Grace Kilian Delaney

Stuntman Draven O’Connor never turns down a dare—even if it means getting down on one knee to propose to his former college roommate and friend. The same man he’s been crushing on since the first day they met. The same man that has grown distant over the past year. And the same man who just agreed to be his fiancé.

Julien Bouchard is tired of living a lie. He spent the past year exploring his sexuality in secret, enduring countless dates with women to appease his mother, and dodging his best friend, Draven, who knows everything there is to know about him, except the one thing that could change their friendship. Ready to face his friend, he meets him at a bar and is greeted by an unexpected marriage proposal. The dare isn’t surprising; it’s the scorching hot kiss that sends Julien’s head and heart in a tailspin—and gives him an idea for the perfect plan.

But perfect plans are never go according to plan, and news of their fake engagement spreads to their families as fast as a wildfire, forcing them to confront their true feelings about each other and hope they don’t get burned.

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.

Blurb: Single omegin Brogan Dale is jealous of the loving, stable relationships his omega friends have with their alpha mates. For years, he’s longed to find his own bondmate and create a family, but that hasn’t been in the cards. Just when he’s determined to take the first alpha who’ll provide for himself and his young son Peyton, Brogan scents him across a crowded coffee shop. Too bad his bondmate is the unstable alpha who nearly killed Brogan’s best friend last year.

Mikel Tovey is taking it one day at a time, adjusting to life on his own, away from the oppression and abuse of his cruel sire. All he wants is to complete his probation, make sure his omegin and brothers are safe, and find a way to live with all the mistakes he’s made. When he scents his omega bondmate, Mikel is initially terrified of the older omegin and his adorable toddler. But Brogan is handsome, kind, and Mikel is completely enamored of little Peyton.

With his bondmate in his sights, Brogan does everything in his power to prove Mikel can be a good alpha, a good mate, and a fantastic father to Peyton. But when Brogan’s past comes roaring into his present and puts Peyton’s future at risk, Mikel’s resolve is shaken. He wants to love and support his omega during this crisis, but he doesn’t know how. With Brogan surrounded by friends and chosen family who love him, he doesn’t need Mikel’s insecurities weighing him down, too—but Brogan has found his mate, and he isn’t letting Mikel walk away without a fight.

This time, Brogan has too much to lose…

NOTE: This is a non-shifter Omegaverse story with alpha/omega/beta dynamics, heats, knotting, and mpreg. In this world, omegas are second-class citizens with few civil rights and almost no protections under the law—although times are changing for the better. Trigger warnings for physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. This series is best read in numerical order.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is Brogan and Mikhail’s story. I liked that the roles were reversed in this addition. We see an alpha who was abused and is unsure of himself after his past actions. Brogan is an omega who survived the fight ring and is the aggressor in this one. Mikhail does everything he can to atone for his mistakes as Brogan add his support and understanding.

It’s not easy for these two as the story progresses but by being there for each other they persevere. More is done about taking down more members of the fight club so that no other omega is taken and abused for the amusement of others.

I really enjoyed the entire book.

Fantastic read and addition.

Reviewer: Lisa

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

Jael and Sabien are mates which should be celebrated however Sabien won’t even acknowledge it. However Sabien has his reasons for putting it all on hold. That is until Helio shows up and Jael sees the reaction and reacts. The little dragon finds an old friend and all hell breaks loose when Helio goes to all links to find the rest of them. It puts him in danger and his mates are going to do all they can to keep him safe. When a dead body drops from the ceiling it places many questions coming, but the surprise will shock them all.

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

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

by

Rebecca Cohen

A tale set in Stuart England, where the king’s life depends on his most loyal of subjects.

Anthony Redbourn, Earl of Crofton, delights in his reputation as a charming rogue. Life is never quiet at the court of King James I, especially with his good friend and secret lover, Sebastian Hewel, by his side. As an actor with the celebrated King’s Men, Sebastian has his own admirers, but neither man has eyes for anyone else.

When a plot against His Majesty is uncovered it threatens Anthony and Sebastian’s charmed lives, and they are dragged into the political intrigue and the race to save the king from danger. Fear that a traitor is linked to the King’s Men leaves Sebastian and Anthony with no choice but to stage a very public dissolution of their friendship, so Anthony can be free to be the patron of a new rising actor, and Sebastian can be the prodigy of another noble.

It is a dangerous game they are playing to expose the plotters and still find a way to meet in secret, as Anthony is adamant that they will not sacrifice the love they have fought so hard to win. They will do whatever it takes to protect the king’s life, and their commitment to each other.

Review: In this sequel to A Prince’s Duty Alik and Eamon travel to Alik’s home after the brutal attack in the previous book. All is not well in Alik’s kingdom as though who want power try to attempt to take control by any means necessary as plans are hatched and set in motion all the while Eamon adjust to his new life by taking charge of the army and setting things straight.

I love this series. So many things happen that had me on the edge of my seat. I was expecting plans to be made for going after those that hurt both Eamon and Alik’s family and I can not wait for that to happen in all it’s bloody purpose. Though Eamon still struggles with the loss of his brother and friends he strives to make sure he avenges their deaths.

Wonderful story full of emotions, betrayal and twists and turns that I never saw coming.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.

Blurb: Morgan Murray is an easy, fun-loving guy. He excels at being a soldier, but never wanted more out of life. Somehow, he ends up in a position of authority on Dru’s new ship, the Blue Sparrow. Now he has to deal with what he dreads most. Responsibilities. Dru and her crew are given the task of finding Wyatt Morrick and telling him about his father’s death. Along the way, Morgan soon learns that responsibility can be painful, difficult, and frightening. It can also lead to something very special.

Dr. Wyatt Morrick is in trouble. Big trouble. He and his medical crew are stuck on a planet under attack. He may not be a soldier, but he has patients and friends to worry about. With very few supplies left, something has to give for them to survive. The whole planet’s future is at stake and he is stuck hiding in a cave.

When Morgan saves Wyatt and his friends, the two men are given a gift, each other. Their love can’t stop the Concord, though, and someone has to. Morgan has to grow and accept his responsibilities, and Wyatt has to move on from his father’s death. That death just happens to be a little more complicated then Wyatt expected.

Author’s Note: 55,000+ 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 third book in a series that is best read in order. Read “The Mercenary’s Mate,” and “The General’s Mate” first!

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: So much happens in this story as Wyatt and Morgan come to terms with different things going on their lives. There are twists and turns around every corner as you traverse through this exciting story. Many characters make an appearance as book progresses.

I liked that we found out what happened to Morgan. Trying to fend off attacks while getting closer is no easy feat for Morgan and Wyatt. I liked the added details into both men.

Entertaining and fascinating. Great read.

Creatures have evolved into unforeseen habitats, and beyond the elusive Sanctuary Cities, human survivors have been reduced to nothing more than bloodthirsty maniacs. It is not for the faint-hearted and due to the extreme level of high heat, it is for mature audiences only. This series will only get darker and better.

Review: I love all types of characters but I believe I have found a character I absolutely despise as a MC and that is Maddox. There is no redemption for this vampire in my eyes. My heart is breaking that Vincent seems to have Stockholm syndrome where Maddox is concerned and believes he must endure Maddox treatment as a way to save his people. Enough about Maddox lets move on.

There is Cerebus, who I am on the fence about as I do not know enough about to say one way or another whether I like him or not. Emory meets Nick but is wary of him and I do not blame him with everything he has been through. There is a war brewing on the horizon and things are being planned as allies are being made.

I do like this series but Maddox is a bit much for me. I do not like him whatsoever. I cannot imagine him having any feelings for anyone other than his own wants and needs. I was hoping he would change in this story but alas he has not.

I am curious as to what the war will bring and who all will be involved in the battle if it comes to that.

Four Seasons. Two Men. One Love.

For struggling film student Isamu Taylor, life’s refrain is about to change from boring documentary about a passionless delivery boy to a blazing and wildly erotic love story.

After spending weeks admiring handsome but older Manhattan executive Brian Gilles while delivering brioche to him in Bryant Park, the man of his lusty dreams has just expressed a desire to get to know Isamu better. A night on the town is just the beginning of a whirlwind romance that will span not only four seasons but countless years.

Amid the beauty and charm of Bryant Park, New York City, two men are about to discover that love knows no age or economic boundaries. This is a collection of four short stories starring these two amazing men, their one sublime love, and the park where it all started.

New Girl

by

A. Fae

Meg is excited to start her junior year at a new college in a small town. She’s heard plenty from other people about the Sweet Spot, a local bookstore and café, and quickly learns the Spot is indeed the “it Spot” in her new home away from home. Everything about her move seems promising save for being stuck in the transitional dorms until she can find a room to rent.

Lys is a senior art student, who spends most of her day working in the student art studio on campus. But when she’s free, she can be found hanging at the Spot or at her place in the small apartment complex, The Palms, home to many other Spot patrons and employees. As luck would have it, she is in need of a roommate and when she receives a promising phone call, she thinks she might have found the one.

The Sweet Spot is not only the “it Spot” for townies and college students alike, but it also happens to be the place where the lesbians (and gays) come to hang out a couple of times of the week. On one such night, when the sounds of karaoke fill the air, Meg and Lys have a chance meeting that goes beyond steamy fairly quickly. But little do they know their next encounter has already been made; set up by the two of them before either knew who the other was.

Will Meg find her home away from campus? Can Lys find the perfect roommate among the women in town, one who promises no partying or overnight guests? The first in the five-book Collegiate Curves novella series by A. Fae, New Girl answers these questions and more while telling the story of two women who start hot and heavy as strangers and end as much more than either ever bargained for.

Finding Finley

(MC Securities 02)
by

Ruby Moone

Aaron Baker has a problem. His online clothing company is under attack. Whilst MC Securities tackle the breaches in security, he asks for an agent to pose as his fake boyfriend. He doesn’t bargain for getting a snarky, ex-marine with sad, blue eyes and submissive tendencies.

Dumped by his boyfriend, Finlay Masters concludes that the best, and safest, place for him is to return to the closet. Kicked out by his parents as a kid for being gay, closeted in the army for fifteen years, body wrecked by an explosion that cost him his job, he isn’t the best bet for any kind of relationship. Even a fake one.

As the investigation mounts, Aaron wants more, but Finn has no faith in love, never dared need anyone. Aaron talks of how lucky he is to find him, but Finn knows if he is to have a chance at a relationship at all, he needs to find himself.

Each book in the MC Securities Series can be read as standalone.

Blurb: Crown Prince Alik of the Grayhaven kingdom is the last remaining heir to his parent’s kingdom.

He knew this day was coming, the day that he would be forced to marry, but he didn’t know that it would be so soon.

He has only request: That he might be the one to choose his future spouse from the royal family his parents have in mind.

Crown Prince Eamon of the Ataton kingdom is the eldest of four siblings.

He is know throughout the lands as the Barbarian Prince, the Bladebringer, the warrior prince that brought a temporary peace to his lands.

He has only one wish: That he and his family be happy, whatever the case might be.

When the Princes meet, they clash, but could it be something more?

With an encroaching enemy breathing down Eamon’s neck and his siblings to think of, will Eamon make the right choice for not only him, but his family, and kingdom as well?

As Alik begins to map out his future and take on the mantle of King, will he be able to let go of his past to move on to something greater than he could hope for?

The Royal Houses of Sea and Snow, Book I: A Prince’s Duty is the beginning of a new series from Jude Marquez. It can be read without having read the previous trilogy, The Cerith Kingdom Chronicles, but does reference events from those books, so read at your own risk!

Book I does end on a cliffhanger, and readers can expect steamy MM sex scenes and violence appropriate to a medieval kingdom right before a war.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Prince Alik and Prince Eamon spend time together and both see a different side to the other. With his father breathing down his neck to marry, Alik refuses to force anyone to marry him. Meanwhile Eamon gathers information on the army about to tear his world apart.

I loved this story. Tense situations, action and romance. I loved both these characters from the previous series The Cerith Kingdom Chronicles and was delighted to learn they had their own story and the start of a new series.

Neither of these two men’s lives have been easy. They both find solace in each other. The enemy army is devastating when it starts trickling into the kingdom. The end of the book left me stunned by the brutality that the men suffered. Not everyone makes it out alive and some I cried at their loss. I am curious how Alik got out and whether or not he was able to save Nicolin.

Amazing and edge of your seat this story delivers a punch at the end. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series to see what else happens.

Fantastic read and highly recommended.
