Reviewer: Prime

Review: I love to read a good romance by Sue Brown. For me it means I get to indulge in a little romance set in England. For me The Fireman’s Pole fulfilled this expectation as well as giving me the thrill of seeing a fireman being romanced by a minor aristocrat. It spoke to and made me happy since I once was obsessed with reading Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian romances (of course MF, but nobody’s perfect).

After ending things with his closeted ex, who he used to work with, Dale Maloney gets transferred to the other side of the country to the village of Calminster. (In saying “the other side of the country” that doesn’t seem big to me since England is so small geographically it’s enough distance for Dale). Things don’t go too well on his first day and his luck just continues with his first encounters with the local Lord of the Manor, Benedict Raleigh, Baron of Calminster. It’s actually really amusing hear their interactions.

Encountering Dale sets off something inside of Ben. He has always known he was gay for what he considers to be practical reasons, Ben has stayed closeted and even has a girlfriend. Besides the fledgling relationship between Dale and Ben making small, shaky steps, there is also a mysterious series of small fires being set around the village and the cops and fire service don’t what to make of it at first.

Ben and Dale make a good couple and their story is really sweet, really cute without too much drama and angst – for me that was perfect. They got great chemistry and they got character that develops well. These guys are truly interesting. The other thing that I really like is that Brown didn’t make a massive song and dance out of Ben’s ex-girlfriend (in fact she’s a bit of an ally) and doesn’t make her out to be the Wicked Witch of the West because she has been dumped. It was refreshing. What was also refreshing was how Dale’s ex turning up didn’t become some stupid all out shoot-up, or some sort of violence or attempted murder.

With narration by Finn Sterling, now this is only the second book I’ve heard narrated by the man, I found the tone and emotion in the book was well conveyed. However, it did take me a couple chapters to fully settle with being happy with the narration. I found the accents a little too choppy at times, but once the rhythm was found, I was happy to continue without further questioning.

Blurb: Jake Tyler walked out of Covert Ops two years ago, a devastated, broken man after he discovered his sister brutally murdered by her husband, Riley. Since then he’s found a kind of peace running a rural bar. The last thing Jake Tyler expects is his former team to turn up with grim news. Jake’s ex-brother-in-law has escaped from prison and is heading Jake’s way. The team is here to protect Jake, whether he likes it or not – a decision reluctantly shared by their leader, Jake’s ex-lover Mitch Mitchelson.

Mitch is angry and hurting. The man he trusted – the man he adored more than anything – abandoned both his team and Mitch. Jake never gave Mitch a chance to help or come to terms with his desertion. Regardless of mission protocols, Mitch isn’t about to open his heart again to that kind of pain.

But the strong attraction between them can’t be denied. How are they ever going to work together when Mitch still resents Jake’s disappearance, and to Jake, the team represents everything that destroyed him in the first place? And meantime they wait for Riley to find them… and to settle the threat once and for all.

Review:  When I was first given this story, I wasn’t too sure if I was going to like it or not.  There are some minor problems that I can see in the story, but other than that it was an enjoyable read.  I always did love a man who carried a gun and who could kill when needed.  This book gave me that.

Jake was a damn good soldier until his best friend murdered his sister.  The problem was he just couldn’t get over losing them both.  He left and opened a bar, to live his life grieving.  He left the man he loved behind as well.  However Riley swore that he did not kill his wife, Jake’s sister.  Now he has escaped from prison and is heading Jakes way.   So when the team walks into the bar, let’s just say things are not getting any easier.

Mitch is indeed angry at Jake, but his heart is still beating for the man he loves.  He believes Riley is innocent, but he will protect Jake with everything in him.  There are so many twists to this story that I enjoyed it.  

There were a few issues with this story.  It felt like it wasn’t finished and I am not talking about the ending.  There were certain parts of the story that fell flat and thrown in there for word count.  I felt bad for Riley, but there was not a lot of him in there yet he was the one that was considered dangerous.  What really caught my eye, was these guys are some big badasses, yet all they did was sit at the bar waiting.  There was no real action but a small part.  The blurb gave me a promise, but the story fell flat.  It had great potential and I did enjoy reading it.  I can’t wait to see what the next book will be like.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the J.T.’s Bar collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

It has been close to one full year since I read book one in this story and I wasn’t sure if I would actually remember it. However the moment I started reading it, it was like the first book was right there. I was very glad to have seen the mistakes the first book had were not present with this one. It is a very action packed story that will entertain you.

Greg has had a rough life. When his older brother took off to join the military, well his family life went down hill. His father is a homophobic ass and his mother just doesn’t seem to care. When it came out that he was gay, well his father kicked him out. Cole had always been the favored child in the family, but Cole had protected Greg until he left. Just trying to work to be able to eat leads him into a dangerous situation. He is the witness to a murder and is the only witness. Welcome to WITSEC, where Marshall’s protect you. The only problem is, the U.S. Marshall’s burned him. So he goes to the one person he hopes can protect him, his older brother.

Colm is a Deputy of the U.S. Marshall’s. His job is to protect his witness, not fall in love with them. When Greg’s home is burned down, and then his job, which killed the owner, Colm knew Greg was in danger. He knew where his man would go, and he was determined to protect him.

Now there are some pretty cool twists to this story, the problem is it was to predictable. It came close to mimicking the first book. However it was still a very enjoyable story that I had a lot of fun reading. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. The characters are dashing, sexy, very entertaining and all alpha’s. The story was fast pace and flowed pretty nice. It had a few bumps in the road, but they were not really noticeable. Other than a few little, minor issues this book rocked.

I had a lot of fun with it and cannot wait to get my hands on the next book. I just hope I don’t have to wait another year to get my hands on it. I would definitely recommend this book.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: I have a soft spot for books set in England – I think it stems from my love of regency MF romances and it kind of just holds over to everything else. I don’t know why, I’m just weird. That was what initially attracted me to Sue Brown’s books and after that I just fell in love with her writing and the sweetness of her stories. For me Sue Brown is definitely a go to if I see a new book come out.

Fire fighter Dale Maloney is the newbie at the village of Calminster’s fire station and he is having problems making a good impression. Life just doesn’t seem to like him at the moment because he seems to be doing everything wrong, especially when it comes to the Baron of Calminster, Benedict Raleigh.

For the most part, what you read in the blurb is what you get in the book.
Dale is indeed the hot firefighter who is trying to fit into small town life and is making a few mistakes along the way. He also comes with baggage. He’s moved for a fresh start. He’s decided to take charge in his life. He no longer wants to live in the closet and he doesn’t want to be someone’s dirty secret. Despite his bumpy start with the Baron of Calminster, Ben, the two men actually do hit it off. So much so, that Ben knows that if he wants anything to be real in any sort of relationship with Dale, he has to make some major changes in his life.

This is a sweet story that feels real. The emotions feel on point and the chemistry between the characters is explosive. I also like the fun of playing off the whole “lord of the manner with one of the commoners” type of story (I think this again goes back to my initial love of regency romances).

Turning The Page…

by

Tempeste O’Riley, Dianne Hartsock, Nikki Prince, Grace R. Duncan, Sue Brown, Aine P Massie, Carole Cummings, Hope Ryan, Mark Zubro, Antonia Aquilante, D. Zander Crane

Turn The Page…. began as a simple idea and grew from there. No matter how bad things seem to be, just turn the page, there’s more—better—things to come. This is only one chapter in your life. It’s not the whole story. With this simple idea, Novice Sister Eroti-Quill—whom most know better as Tempeste O’Riley—began their quest to help Suicide Prevention and Awareness programs in their area. They managed to con (excuse me, convince) other authors to donate their time and stories to the project, and now, many months later, Turn The Page is born!

The authors in this anthology donated their talent as a way to support Eroti-Quill’s hope for others, to help bring strength to programs that so desperately need funding. It will allow them show those that need support but may not have it, or that may be afraid to reach out, just how much love and understanding surrounds them. Turn The Page…. is a diverse range of stories about the journey of love, hope, and acceptance.

Individual Blurbs:

Happy Birthday to Me by Tempeste O’Riley

When Dave’s best friend drags him out for his birthday—nearly kicking and screaming, he finds more than he expected at Sovereign, the BDSM club he half owned but had refused to step foot in for two years other than for administrative things while it was closed. He didn’t go to clubs. He didn’t sub anymore. Period.

Well… until he sees Master Nicky. Then his plans for his birthday change and he decides that maybe giving himself a present, might not be quite such a bad idea after all.

Robin’s Confession by Dianne Hartsock

How can Robin find true love without accepting himself first?

Purr by Nikki Prince

Sasha’s love was in imminent danger. All she wanted was to keep Tori safe. Stay at the cabin wait for the verdict from the council. That’s all they had to do. One little dip in the lake couldn’t hurt could it?

Lockdown by Grace R. Duncan

Gylam’s never been that great at communication and this time he’s gone too far. His penchant for keeping his mouth shut resulted in a disastrous trip to the local dungeon. Jackson, his partner—both cop and at home—and Dom, is well familiar with Gylam’s tendencies. The punishment he gives Gylam is just shy of his limits, but Gylam knows he’s earned it. It remains to be seen if it teaches him anything, though.

Ducks in a Row by Sue Brown

David spends his afternoons feeding the ducks, a peaceful activity until the day Jeff and his Labrador dog burst into his life. David and Jeff get to know one another, punctuated by Bozo’s mishaps, but David is unwilling to share all his secrets. Will Jeff give him the time he needs?

Butterflies by Aine P Massie

Kyndra visits Jaiden’s shop for a little birthday shopping but is there for more than the pretty blown glass designs she makes—lovely though they are. What she really wants is a date with the beautiful craftswoman. But can she push her fears aside and ask, or will her past get in the way? With Jaiden’s help, can who Kyndra is inside finally shine?

Once Step Back by Carole Cummings

When Sahir is busy running for his life, it never occurs to him that the being in wrong place at the wrong time might turn into the right place at the right time. Not until he literally collides with Nicholas and salvation comes by way of magical intervention. But when Nicholas ends up being the one who really needs help, Sahir has to decide the best way to give it—and how to offer it to someone who can’t even figure out if he wants it.

Superheroes by Hope Ryan

Many people reach a point where they think life can’t get any worse. Rock bottom, where the future is so bleak, they begin to ask, “why bother?”

When homeless gay man Wayne Kent reaches that point, standing on a Pittsburgh bridge on a cold Tuesday in April, the last thing he expects is to get stopped—especially by a man named Bruce Clark.

But Bruce has been there, he’s seen that, he’s thought and felt the things Wayne is now and he refuses to see the beautiful, hurting man become another statistic. Coffee and a sandwich is a first step and Bruce hopes it’ll lead to a permanent step up for Wayne. And maybe even a step toward more together.

Unworthy by Mark Zubro

A love lost over half a century ago. Is there really redemption for all of our regrets, or at least perhaps for one regret? A chance to change the decision you made over half a century ago, or at least a chance to say what was unsaid, to say what could be said now? The love you missed so long ago, and if you could have one moment again, once last chance.

Love and Hope and Magic by Antonia Aquilante

Once each century, a ritual is performed, the magic of which sustains the land and protects it and its people for the century to come. But the person who performs the ritual never survives. This time Ailill is chosen. He is honored and content with his fate, but his best friend Lorcan is not. Lorcan can’t accept the loss of Ailill and can’t see a life without the man he thinks of as his other half. But Ailill knew Lorcan perhaps better than Lorcan knows himself, and he knew a life of love and magic is waiting for Lorcan after Ailill is gone, if only Lorcan can find the courage to reach for it.

Façade by D. Zander Crane

David struggles with his gender identity as he searches his city for a woman-murdering madman in his female alter-ego, Façade. Can he overcome his depression and confusion long enough to stop the Grinning Reaper?

Morning My Angel

by

Sue Brown

Josh Cooper, top US security field agent, is sent on an inter-agency assignment to London, when a partner in his firm goes missing in suspicious circumstances. Used to working in sole charge of his well-honed team, he clashes heads with the handsome, but pompous Cal, his UK co-operator and superior. Josh’s gut tells him something is wrong. He’s being kept out of the loop and Cal’s agenda is running on a different path. 

He also has a personal issue to deal with. He’s involved in a cyber-relationship with “Charlie”, an unknown man who connected with Josh by accident. Their banter has led to deeper respect and a sexual interest, but now Josh is faced with a growing attraction to Cal. Between this conflict and the tension of the mission, Josh’s heart and head are overworked and confused. Things can’t get much worse. 

Then Josh discovers the enemies he’s seeking have a new target: him.

Review: So, first off, I have to say that I’ve been getting through this series all arse about. I actually wrote a review for book 2 of Island Medics (which I read and loved) before listening to the audio of the present book, book 1 of the Island Medics series. However, for the life of me, I cannot figure of which of Sue Brown’s books set within the universe of the hot docs of the Isle of Wight and cannot find it in my collection, when I am convinced that I have read about the reasons why a minor character of both book 1 and 2 essentially hides himself away. I found the book for 2 characters we met in passing towards the end of Island Doctor too, which I haven’t read and now want (FYI Lyon Road Vet series). It is so incredibly frustrating.

But none of that is the point. The point here is that I have listened to and thoroughly enjoyed Island Doctor. We meet Dr Jeff Martin, a GP on the Isle of Wight. He loves his adopted home, although he tells everyone who cares that he has a girlfriend called Trisha back in Manchester. Trisha is in fact, Tris. Jeff’s boyfriend never wanted to be out and so Jeff never forced the issue.

However, between work and the constant commuting between Isle of Wight and Manchester on weekends leaves Jeff with no social life and knowing very few people on the isle, which makes him scared about coming out. While things come to a head with Tris, Jeff meets the great grandson of one of his favourite patients, Cameron Gillard. Cameron is like a breath of fresh air in his life and Cameron is ready to show Jeff that he doesn’t need to live in the closest. Both MCs are fantastic and strong in different ways, but they are both independent but they are also mixtures of intelligent, rational and caring.

One of the biggest problems for me was that it took a few chapters for me to get used to the narration by Adam Rivington. I’m not sure if that’s because I suspect that the accent is either completely put on or merely an exaggeration or what was going on… it just felt at first that the voice wasn’t real to me. I know for a fact that I find it difficult to listen to Australian accents which are exaggerated, too, more so than the impersonation of the accent. Whatever, in the end, it doesn’t matter because I quickly got on board with the narration and enjoyed the book from start to finish.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Island Counselor is the second book in Sue Brown’s Island Medic series. I swear I have read book 1, Island Medic, the plot and even reading about the MCs of book 1 in the current installment were familiar to me. It is actually the even that happens to the titular Island counselor, Logan, that I remember reading. Though for the life of me I could not actually find said book in my ebook collection. In fact, Island Medics is a spin off series from Sue Brown’s Isle of Wight series (a series that I only just found out about and contemplating if I have the time to back to read it, I would certainly love to).

That aside, Island Counselor works as a standalone book, as do most of Sue Brown’s novels that are part of a series. However, I’m not about to say go back and read book 1 anyway since I only vaguely remember that I’ve read it. Seems a bit contradictory. 😉

Our two MCs are Counselor Logan Wilde, who had been a doctor before becoming a counselor but has escaped reality to not deal with his PTSD on the Isle of Wight, and Nick Brent, who is a native of the Isle of Wight though an accident has left him unable to work for the time being.

Their relationship starts from an odd place. They are both intent to be friends and help the other heal – both physically and metaphorically. Love just seems to come naturally to these two as they help each other. To me, that is the best kind of love story. It’s just so easy to accept them as a couple, as well as be able to see the where their passion comes from and feeling the sexual tension between them. It’s not in your face kind of sexual tension – it’s just nice and perfect for two souls who need some healing.

Reviewer: Portia

Review: This is a fabulous new series set in the world of Isle. A world I happen to be very fond of.

First off, Jeff is an idiot. I loved the guy, but he had way too much going for him to put up with Tris’ mess. Thankfully, he finally gets a clue.

Enter sexy Cameron. These two could not be more different, if they tried. But, somehow they work. Well, they work after a few hurt feelings, a major misunderstanding and some sweet sheet time.

All in all, a very nice beginning to a new series.

Definitely recommending.

Reviewer: Cat

Blurb: On a ranch, there’s plenty to stand in the way of two men finding romance and their happily ever after—long hours of work, lack of communication, and the expectations of others. But for these cowboys, no obstacles can keep them from realizing their passion and love.

Letters From a Cowboy

When Simon Wood comes to Tamar Ranch, what begins as animosity between him and Chip Henson soon evolves into something very different. They give in to their need, but they’re taking a big risk leaving letters for each other. Soon Simon must choose between leaving the ranch to save Chip’s job or taking an even bigger risk and going back for him.

Review: Back in the 50’s being gay could get you killed. Simon moves from ranch to ranch when things get heated. After leaving his last ranch getting caught with his boss, he was lucky to leave with his hide. He comes to the Tamar ranch and finds he like it.  An animosity between him and Chip soon evolve into something much stronger than either has ever had before. This time Simon doesn’t run to save his hide but Chips. How does that work out?

This was a beautifully written, poignant story of love between two men in the 1950’s. There is comradery, lots of action, drama and a beautiful romance. I loved the little letters between the men. This story moved me in so many ways. I will warn ya, once ya start you can’t stop and have a tissue or two handy.

The only issue I had was I was deep into it and bam I turned the page to the epilogue. It ended much too soon, but I loved the end!

If you like historical romance (1950’s, bigotry, cowboys, angst, drama, and some fairly hot man-sex this is definitely for you!
