Crazy Joe


A.J. Llewellyn & D.J. Manly

Mating Tomeo



In 1946 Hawaii, Tomeo Yamaguchi harbors a secret that would be considered shameful by his traditional Japanese family—he aches for the caress of other men.

Which makes it particularly devastating when Tomeo’s father hires a tanomoshi—a matchmaker—to find a bride for his son.

Tomeo spends time with the tanomoshi, Shin Yamada, and as the men come to know one another, deep feelings emerge, the transition from friends to lovers inevitable. They fall into a clandestine affair, their hushed and hidden lovemaking as beautiful and breathless in their eyes as it is torrid in the eyes of others.

More time spent worshipping Tomeo’s body means less time finding him a suitable bride. Shin’s forsaking his duty and risking everything…but mating Tomeo is worth every stolen second. No matter the cost…

A Wizard in Waikiki 01

A.J. Llewellyn

Summoned from the past, Konu rises naked from the sea to reclaim his power for the freedom to live—and love. If the forces of evil don’t get to him first!

On a hot day in Waikiki, beachgoers are stunned when a tall, handsome man rises from the ocean. Striding naked to a small, ringed enclosure containing four huge stones most tourists never even notice, he becomes visibly upset. These are Wizard Stones, positioned between the beach and the foot traffic on Kalakaua Avenue. Konu, the naked man, is agitated by a young Asian girl draping her beach towel over the stones. He’s come a long way, from Tahiti, and is one of the ancient wizards whose power was infused into these sacred stones four hundred years ago.

With the invisible battle between good and evil raging, Konu has been dispatched to help balance the power. Landing in modern-day Waikiki, he’s stunned by the changes – and to find he is alone. A cop tries to arrest him for indecent exposure but the young girl’s grandfather – who thinks Konu’s a homeless lunatic offers him refuge. Will the ancient forces of evil beat this wizard in Waikiki? Or can Konu find his power again, and perhaps…even love?

Hamish never thought he’d want to be dominated until Paul Murdock showed up with the key to his padlocked heart.

It’s been said that all a submissive can do when they are bound and tied, is feel. For former boxer Hamish Murdock, all he’s ever done is feel. Feel bad that is. He never took pleasure from pain until meeting Paul, whom he thinks of as his tikkun, the man who rights all the wrongs in his life. For Paul and Hamish, pain is pleasure in their most secret, private moments. On the outside, they are a normal, devoted couple with successful businesses…

But deep down, theirs is a strict D/s relationship that’s about to be tested in their first BDSM vacation. Paul’s chosen a secret destination for Hamish in their Valentine’s Day long-weekend. Can Hamish handle what Paul has in mind? More importantly, will Paul be able to keep his secret and keep his man under control? Or will their first BDSM voyage be their last?

Reviewer: Prime

Review: This is a bit of a funny and quirky story by AJ Llewellyn and DJ Manly.

After being caught with his pants down (with the boss’s son, no less), celebrated New Orleans homicide detective Montana Delray is punished by being sent down to the precinct (the 77th) where all the crazies work (I’m sure there’s a nicer way I could say that but that’s the thing). Down at the 77th precinct Montana meets some rather interesting characters, including Joe Hunter – aka Crazy Joe – who is a psychic.

This was a fun story with rather bizarre circumstances revolving around the crime in the main plot. But really, it made the story funnier. Montana is an ordinary sort of guy thrown into extraordinary circumstances. After being a strait-laced sort of guy he’s been thrown in the land of the crazies.

There is definitely some sexual sparks between Montana and Joe but the romantic side of the story is rushed compared to the “policing” part of the story. That was a bit disappointing, I’d like more relationship about how these two oddballs fit together.

This is a quirky and totally funny quick(ish) read. Those not familiar with the authors’ their writing style or story structure will probably be a little disappointed by the distinct lack of a definite HEA ending, and as I said earlier the romance was rushed.

However, fans of AJ Llewellyn and DJ Manly will certainly enjoy the story and will expect the rushed nature of the story.

Blurb: Ky Maxwell is a PR guy who’s desperate for work. When his cushy movie studio job disappears, he tries everything to find new employment until his former boss takes pity on him and refers him to a major movie studio about to go into production on a huge sci-fi trilogy.

Ky’s excited about the project until his prospective employer, Lisa Bird, insists she needs to do an astrological chart of Ky and a psychic reading as part of the interview. His crazy maybe-boss predicts a new man coming into Ky’s life. This new man will have a fire sign, she claims, is probably a Leo, his first name will start with a “T,” and he will be in his early 30s.

Ky, however, couldn’t be less interested in her prediction. He needs work, and love won’t pay the bills. Unfortunately, Ky doesn’t get the job because Lisa believes he isn’t a team player and because their stars are out of alignment. That would be fine, except that the reading she gave him proves to be frighteningly accurate.

Soon, Ky has no idea which of the two wonderful new guys he meets is his “forever man.” How can he choose? Or will they, too, vanish as fast as Ky’s last paycheck?

Reviewer: Prime

Review: There is rarely a time that I do not like, if not love an AJ Llewellyn book. Only You is one of those times were I just like the book.

The story follows Ky – he works in LA in the movie business and finds himself in a slump when he loses his job. Ky’s best friend (Angus) and best friend’s boyfriend (Santos), who also working in the business) want to help him get back on his feet and if Ky finds a man along the way they would be entirely pleased by that, too.

When he does track down a potential job, Ky gets a psychic reading. For a guy that doesn’t put store in any of that kind of stuff, he really did start thinking about it. There are a number of love interests, including Santos’s cousin in Tijuana (where Santos and Angus go regularly), Isidoro.

Only You is the kind of book which is all telling and angst and found myself hanging when I thought that there needed to be more action. Not that that is necessarily a bad thing. There was also what I’ve been accused of doing plenty of times – not finishing a thought. Plenty happens and we know how Ky feels, but sometimes it just seems incomplete.

However, none of the characters really grabbed me (which actually made me a bit pissed off), though I found myself really sympathizing with Ky.

As I said, I really did enjoy this one but my imagination told me there was more unexplored potential in this one.

Blurb: American author Charlie Hawkes wins a writing scholarship to spend a year in Venice, Italy. It’s a magical place, especially when he meets and begins dating sexy young café owner, Franco. But then, Charlie almost dies in a boating accident and winds up in a coma. The next time he sees Franco is during Venice’s renowned Carnivale, and Charlie truly can’t remember him. The cat mask Franco’s wearing, however, triggers something in Charlie’s shattered memory.

Franco is a young man with much sadness in his life. He’s juggling his duties between his café and a chocolate shop in St. Mark’s Square, and desperately yearning for love because his mother disapproves of his sexuality. Not only that, but the one man to whom he’s been attracted—Charlie, the handsome, forgetful American—vanishes for a short time before reappearing and seeming like a different person.

Slowly the masks come off, and it soon becomes apparent that both men have secrets that peel away in layers. Can Franco and Charlie have the passion they desire, and can the love they feel for each other ever be unmasked?

Reviewer: Prime

Review: A really sweet book in a fantastically romantic setting with a hot Italian who wants nothing more than to cherish and protect his lover. Best damn story line you could get without there being cowboys involved, lol.

Yes, so there is no secret that I loved this story. When it opens we meet Charlie (aka Charlie the Forgetful American), he’s on some sort of arts exchange program from the US now living in Venice for a year. He needs to write a book as part of his scholarship but it seems a damn good scholarship (I wouldn’t mind one, I wonder if there is one for scientists…)

Anyway, Charlie isn’t there long before he starts to run into Franco, he is a waiter and runs his brother’s cafe. He has a harpy for a mother and a really sweet nonna. In fact, after the main characters Franco’s nonna is easily the best character, or at least the nicest, while his mother vies for most hated alongside Charlie’s mother.

Franco is like a knight in shining armour when it comes to taking care of Charlie in his hour of need. It is both sweet and beautiful. While there is a large dose of insta-love, it is easily relatable. It certainly had my heart aflutter.

I’m sure my family would love me to find a good Italian boy. I wonder if they come as a complete, awesome package like Franco?

Reviewer: York

Review: I probably should have added this to my review of book 1 in the series, Artificial Moonlight, I’m not drawn to the Sons of Anarchy/ biker gang genre. That said, I’m not against the genre it’s just not usually a topic I seek out. I will say that the plotline is incredibly intriguing and it stayed that way right to the end of this one. I loved the whole idea that not only Diego and Colby but many of the supporting characters, Nuts and Jerry to name a couple, are a perfect blend of stereotypical and outside the box for bikers. Reading those inconsistencies grabbed my attention and held it right till the last page of Moonlight.
As for the writing style of the series, it could use some assistance. It’s not poorly written by any means but it definitely felt rushed. As I said in the other reviews for the series and that seems the easiest way to put it, it felt as if the authors were facing a deadline and weren’t given the time to expand certain parts. For me, that isn’t really a problem but I know that those kinds of holes can be an issue for some.

I don’t know if the authors intend to write anymore of Diego and Colby’s story but this is a perfect ending for the pair. I was pretty sure this is where the storyline was headed even before I was ½ way through the second book but expecting this outcome didn’t lessen my enjoyment of seeing how everyone got there

I will most certainly putting the authors on my “watch for” list.

Blurb: It’s not easy being the life of the party…especially when you’re dead…

Hula dancer Kimo and his husband Lopaka are hiding their endangered children in the secret, mysterious Kahuna Village on the Big Island. Most Hawaiian residents think this ancient village is pure myth, but it is very real. For hundreds of years, it has been the refuge of the sick, the injured, and those in mortal peril.

While Kimo, the Keeper of Secrets of the old Hawaiian way, has managed to protect his family from the living, he hasn’t banked on the hundred-year-old ghost of a murdered female Japanese dancer named Aoi invading their lives. Taking refuge in the body of Kimo’s beloved Lopaka, Aoi refuses to leave. Now, Kimo and his family must help Aoi find the way to what she calls The Pureland, including taking a journey back in time, except that she’s starting to like being alive again.

Review: This is book seven in this amazing series and should be read in order. It will keep you from getting lost and will give you a great thrill.

I am not really sure what to think of this particular book but I did like it. A. J. always gives you a world that you can lose yourself into. Wonderful characters that you will not only love but also cheer on in their future adventures.

Kimo and his husband Lopaka have been hiding their children from the dangers that search to hurt them. They hide in the secret and mysterious Kahuna Village on the Big Island. Hawaii has many traditions and has many fears. They know of the ancient village but only as a myth. For hundreds of years, it has been there to help the sick, the injured, and those who are in serious danger. I love the magical part of these two men. It is Halloween time and the kids are dressed up, and they can make the costume’s ears dance. I love the way they seem so happy and can make the children laugh with such glee. When Sammy comes up missing, they go in search. What they find is a ghost taking over his body. Aoi is a hundred-year-old ghost. She was a murdered female Japanese dancer. She was also lost.

Kimo is the Keeper of Secrets. He keeps the secrets of the old ways and has protected his family to the best of his abilities. But when they get Aoi to leave Sammy’s body, she in turn goes in to Lopaka’s body. The problem is she is getting use to the change and doesn’t want to leave. However, she also knows that she needs to find what she calls The Pureland. It involves taking a journey back in time. Now if they can only get her to understand she doesn’t belong in this time and that Lopaka does.

It has a fantasy side to it as well as the fact that there is a ghost haunting them. I love the mixture that this story gives you. I will never look at Hawaii the same way though. I would definitely recommend reading this. It will make you laugh at some parts of it. It has the right amount of humor and danger to it. I love the way they all love each other and show it through not only their actions but also their words. It gives you a warm feeling when you read it. To know that they would give their lives up to save the ones that they love and will protect them at all cost.

Blurb: Honolulu detective Quinn Novak has to enter another realm to find scorching-hot sex. How far does he have to travel to find true love?

Quinn Novak is a Honolulu Police Department detective working an unusual case. A string of robberies have taken place in homes tented for termites in the economically depressed town of Makaha Beach. A gang of thieves appears to be trailing pest control units then breaking in, so Quinn is assigned to watch over a particularly important dignitary’s home late one night. Quinn has a problem, however. He’s afraid of the dark.

He’s never told a soul, seems to be coping with his phobia until he spies two men breaking in, and follows them, despite of the dangers of the pesticide–and the dark.
Once inside the house, he appears to enter another realm–one filled with hot men who want…him. Quinn has the most incredible threesome of his life, but then must leave the house. How the heck does he get back in? And can he? Now, suddenly, he wants to get back to black…back to the dark and the two men he left inside the house. Can he ever find them again?

Purchase Link:

Review: This is a re-edited, re-release title. I have got to tell you this story had me from the first paragraph and kept it all the way to the end, but it is one bizarre story. It starts off with a bunch of robberies that are taking place when homes are getting tented for termites. There are a gang of robbers that are doing this. Somehow, Quinn and his partner get drawn into it. What he had not expected at the meeting was a man he had spent two hot days with two years ago to be walking in. A man who said he would call him when he got back to Las Angeles, but never did.

They are being told that most of the robberies are happening at night, which seems to be the way most robberies go. The only problem, which for him is one big problem and that, is he is afraid of the dark. He goes inside the house to stop them, only to find himself in another realm. Talk about strange but it gets even better. The realm is filled with hot men, men that want him. They give him an amazing time, the most incredible threesome of his life. Now all he has to do is figure out how to get back to it. Or so he thinks.

JD is a federal agent and the same man he had the amazing two nights with. He had always thought of him, always wondered why he had never called him. It wasn’t until one night when JD shows up that he realizes he might have another chance with the man who made his heart beat fast and his palms sweat, but what about the two men in the dark.

I loved this story. It has quite a twist to it, which will surprise you. It is just a bit weird though, however it is good. I would recommend this one because it has two hot and sexy lawmen, some crazy strangers, some hot sex, and a bit of danger to it. You will get a kick out of this one. It had me laughing throughout most of it. Who knew termites could bring people together.

Blurb:Fallen Hawaiian god Malakai’s love for the mortal Jepoi reaches fever pitch. The furious ruling gods open the gates of hell, releasing long-dormant demons and monsters into the islands.

Malakai and Jepoi have infuriated the major Hawaiian god Kanaloa by falling in love. Malakai was once Kanaloa’s lover, and after a nasty break-up, Kanaloa banished Malakai to eternity as a vampire on earth. Malakai loves Jepoi and yearns for a peaceful, mortal existence with his man, but Kanaloa is a sore loser. He’s not about to lose the man he worships to a guy who just won’t go away…so he abducts Jepoi and punishes him severely.

He turns Jepoi into a vampire, separating him from Malakai. Jepoi struggles to find his way as a Hawaiian vampire, learning what it’s like for others of his kind in the islands.

When Malakai finds Jepoi, their passion reaches fever pitch. To punish them both, Kanaloa opens up all the gates of hell, unleashing long-dormant demons, and monsters into the islands.


This is book two in the Tiki Vampires series. See the full series listing here

Purchase Link:

Review: This is book two of this series and to get into it you must start with book one. Malakai, also known as Kane was once a Hawaiian god until he pissed off his lover Kanaloa. Kanaloa was a very nasty and bitter god, and with his powers, he banishes Malakai to live out as a shape-shifting vampire. Malakai had fallen in love with Jepoi. Jepoi was a human and a very sexy nurse. After catching a deadly disease, Malakai had saved him. However jealous of their relationship Kanaloa kidnaps Jepoi and turns him into a vampire.

Jepoi has to learn what it is like to be a vampire and he must find his way back to Malakai. Their tempers are flaring hot in this story as is their feelings for each other. Kanaloa once again gets angered and sends out the demons and monsters on the island. In most stories, a jealous god would have just killed Jepoi, but I think Kanaloa realizes if he did that then he would definitely loose Malakai. I love the fact there is so much love and passion between Malakai and Jepoi. You can tell it is there with their words and their actions. How Malakai would have done everything in his power to get Jepoi back. He would have searched the world and brought his mate back. He would have also killed Kanaloa.

This story has a lot of twist and turns that make it interesting. I love the dangers that are coming at them from all the directions. I love the way each character shows their feelings so easily. Whether is love, lust, passion, anger and you can tell the strengths that comes from each other. I am not really sure about this story though. I just couldn’t get my attention to stay on it. I want a book that can capture my attention from the start and keep it all the way to the end, but this story was just too bizarre and too hard to follow. I just didn’t understand parts of it.

I would recommend this story because even though I could not really get into it, it is a good story. It has Hawaiian gods, sexy men, dangers from all directions, hot sex and some major quirks. I can’t wait to read the next book. Even though the first book and this one was a bit difficult to get into it is a really good story.

Blurb:When Jepoi meets the man of his dreams, he has no way of knowing that Malakai is a fallen Hawaiian god condemned to eternity…as a vampire.

The pantheon of gods was displeased when Kane, one of their major gods, fell out with his lover Kanaloa, one of the ruling forces over the Hawaiian Islands. Condemned to an eternal earth-bound life as a shape-shifting vampire, Malakai has one chance to break the curse. He must never fall in love and he must never intervene in human problems.

All that goes astray when he meets Jepoi, a young male nurse working on the Big Island of Hawaii. Malakai falls for Jepoi and can’t resist him, but then all hell literally breaks loose when Malakai saves Jepoi from ancient and deadly disease that returns to the fatal shores of Hawaii.

Review: This is a pretty bizarre story. Don’t get me wrong it was a very good read. I just couldn’t get into it. I had trouble following it even from the start. The characters are very descriptive and are pretty hot. Kane is a vampire, his real name is Malakai and he had pretty much been banished by his lover Kanaloa. What Kanaloa had not known was by doing this Kane would find the one man he would truly love. One very sweet and cute love named Jepoi.


Jepoi is a young male nurse who has fallen in love with Kane. The only problem was he had not known what Kane truly was. One day Kane had warned Jepoi not to do a flight, but it had been an emergency and Jepoi had to go. He had helped two very ill people only to realize he had caught a very deadly disease. Kane had permission to save his lover, but there is always a price.

Kane had been told to fix his curse he must never love a human and must never intervene in any of their problems. He failed at both, not only had he fallen in love with Jepoi but also he saved his life.


I felt like there is a lot of jealousy coming from Kanaloa and it was revenge to send Kane away. There is a lot of danger in this story that does make it a pretty good read. I loved the way each character felt for the other, however I did not really get a lot of it, but I did like the way it did finally connect for me. It has a lot of twist and turns to this story and it left me hanging at the very end. So I am off to read the next book to this story.

Blurb: US Marshal Jubilee Mason and Canadian transplant Kieran Fox join forces to take down an evil drug empire… but can their relationship survive Kieran becoming the town’s new sheriff?


Kieran and Jubilee fight their growing mutual attraction as they deal with a new menace to life in Lone Trail. A drug cartel is trafficking dangerous, home-brewed drugs, distributing them around Texas and beyond.

For Kieran, the shocking discovery that his own father is deeply involved is the worst kind of betrayal. Neither Kieran nor Jubilee knows whom to trust as it becomes clear that the cartel has a powerful grip on many influential people around them. It soon also becomes obvious that Kieran, who is struggling with his feelings for Jubilee, must make a decision.

Can he give in to his feelings and trust him…or will he just go on longing for him?

Review: This book is part of a series and must be read in order.


Kieran has more than enough on his plate, when he finds that his father is involved in the case he is working on. Trying to fight his feelings for Jubilee is difficult and he is having doubts that his heart will survive his new relationship with Jubilee. The small town where he now works isn’t exactly gay friendly and he won’t live in the closet. Jubilee has fallen head over heels but he has no choice but to be discreet, and he has more than enough on his plate discovering who the mole is in the US Marshal Department and tracking down the cartels. Together they have to work. But are they fighting a losing battle with their attraction to each other?


Longing picks up where Orgasmic Texas Dawn finished, continuing the story of Kieran and Jubilee as they hunt down the players in a drug cartel. Jubilee and Kieran have embarked on a secret relationship, working together and hiding how they feel. But the strain is getting to Kieran and he tries to back off and concentrate on the investigation. Jubilee knows he has to focus on the investigation simply because as him and Kieran dig deeper more spies come out of the woodwork, but all his focus keeps zoning into Kieran. Many things come out as they try to put a stop to the cartels, with Kieran finding out shocking news about his father.


This is a great continuation of Orgasmic Texas Dawn, the action and adventure continues with no let-up in sight with many twists and turns in the investigation. Jubilee and Kieran really are a great couple but the town where they live is not productive to a relationship, Jubilee might have his dreams but Kieran really can’t see how it would work. This book really does try to balance the two storylines, relationship & investigation, slightly combining the two as more people discover the true nature of Jubilee and Kieran’s relationship, and Kieran feels a little put out that Jubilee hasn’t even thought about any sort of compromise. The book is left open-ended as they all head off to Canada but it really isn’t looking good for poor Jubilee.


I will recommend this to those who love action and adventure, hot sex, confliction emotions, danger, secrets, twists and turns and an ending that is wide open to many possibilities.

Blurb: Owen was born into a Were family, and like those before him, he is expected to turn on the full moon of his twenty-first birthday. And there are especially high expectations concerning Owen’s shift from boy to wolf, given that his birthday falls on the night of the full moon itself.

But when the full moon rises on that fate night, nothing happens. While others around him change, he stays the same, forced to run for his life from the angry pack. Needless to say, Owen is a disappointment to his family.

But then a mysterious and sexy stranger with wickedly tempting eyes comes to stay at Owen’s mothers boardinghouse, a stranger regarded as suspicious by the clan, who apparently knows that there is far more to Owen than his failure to shift….

Review: This is part of the Growl AmberPax Collection but can be bought and read separately.

It is a really strange book, but one I can see reading over and over. Although I do wish it was longer, because it left me hanging and with questions. I really want a story that has a beginning that introduces the characters, then the story of their lives, and then the end. This one had me trying to figure out who everyone was, what they were really up too and where will Owen end up.

Owen had turned twenty-one and was supposed to change into his wolf. However, that did not happen. It left him with a lot of hateful wolves including his own family. So when Sloane shows up at his mother’s boardinghouse, he was just trying to figure out who this man was. Sloane kidnaps him and takes him away from his family. The only problem is Sloane tells him that not only is he a special type of wolf, but that Sloane is a natural-born alpha wolf. It is foretold that an omega kills all the wolves. Owen flat-out refuses to follow the rules, and he knows that all he wants is this man.

Sloane wants to kill Owen’s family because of the fact that Owen’s uncle had killed Sloane’s family. Revenge is all he is thinking about, however it would also mean his death. What he didn’t expect was to fall in love with a quirky fireball.

I always wondered what it meant by dark fantasy and I come to the conclusion that this story tells it perfectly. It has a darkness to it and I was surprise to find out that I really did like the story. I would recommend this book to anyone who loved shapeshifters, werewolves, two hot and sexy men, hot sex, and lots of twist and turns. It keeps you on the edge of the seat. However, I do not like books where it leaves me wondering. This one I actually loved.

Blurb: Imagine a cafe that caters to your every whim and secret fetish, run by hot young men eager to please. Would you go for it?

When, out of desperation, Bran Caspar takes a job in a women’s designer shoe store, little does he know he’s just entered a world of secret shoe fetishes and a string of cafes designed to cater to a man’s every whim and secret obsessions. It’s a world that turns out to be deadly but highly compelling, especially with a certain “maid” named Rick.

For Bran’s best friend, Finn, the prospect of a new business is a pleasant distraction from his horrible breakup with his lover, Waldo. And speaking of which, where is Waldo? Right inside the Fetish Cafe, looking for more than a cup of coffee.

Will these best friends find happiness at the end of their shift, or will they, too, become victims of The Fetish Cafe?

Review: Well, this one is different, to say the least. It is very funny but also a little bit nuts. It caught my attention from the start and kept to the end. However I am not sure if that is a good thing or not. I have heard of a lot of fetishes. However, I don’t think I have ever heard of it all in one spot. It starts with Bran needing a job, and with the help of his mother, he has one. At first, I thought it was just selling women shoes, and then it is of a guy wearing the shoes. Strange but you can get it. Then there is a murder and you think ok a bit strange but what can I say. However the first day of the job, your boss gets murdered, but before he dies he gives you his car, money and tells you to open up your own Fetish Cafe. Bran thinks the way I am thinking at first and then he is all for it.

Finn is his best friend and has been in love with Waldo, however Waldo takes off. They discuss the cafe and they are all in. After Bran had met Rick, he has wanted him. Rick is a little bit different. He was one of the men in a French maids outfit at a cafe his late boss had taken him to. After talking with Rick, they are all in.

Then they find themselves in danger and questions are asked. Lots of sex, strange ideas, and even stranger fantasies are in this book. It is amazing and very funny. Each one falls in love, however they realize that they can’t have their cake and eat it too. Neither wants the other being with other men, and in starting The Fetish Cafe, it is all about sex.

I laughed my ass off with this story however it left me with more questions than answers. I just can’t figure out how it moved so fast. One minute working, the next your boss is dead and you just open up a cafe and the dangers come after you. If you love a quirky comedy, hot sex, murder and quite a bit of death than you would love this story. I would recommend reading it because it will lift your spirits up. I just love the humorous way it was told.

Blurb: Canadian detective Kieran Fox goes undercover to infiltrate a violent drug ring. US Marshal Jubilee Mason is worried about him, but has his hands full hunting one of the most wanted men, recently spotted in a Lone Trail brothel…


US Marshal Jubilee Mason is separated from his lover, Canadian detective Kieran Fox, who goes undercover infiltrating a violent drug ring. Jubilee worries about Kieran throwing himself into his undercover assignments, and this one almost destroys him. Meanwhile back in Lone Trail, Jubilee is on the hunt for one of the US Marshals’ most wanted men; a former detective who murdered his wife and has been seen in an unlikely place–a brothel–by an even more an unlikely witness: Dillon DePriest, the newly reinstated, happily married Sheriff of Lone Trail…

Review: This story is part of a series and must be read in order. Jubilee and Kieran are on the trail of Reggie Jones, both men knowing that when the case is over they have to go their separate ways. Kieran throws himself into the undercover world to bring down another drug cartel, a case that nearly kills Kieran and ends up taking him back to Jubilee. Jubilee goes back to life in Lone Trail and getting his office sorted but he is soon on the trail of a man who is one of the Marshal’s most wanted, the tip coming from Dillon DePriest and the sighting was in Eva’s brothel.


This story continues where Longing ended, Jubilee and Kieran both admitting their love but unable to compromise, separating when the case of Reggie Jones ends and eventually crossing paths again as Kieran shuts down another drug cartel. The path to love is never easy but when you throw in living in two different countries, high stress jobs and undercover assignments it gets to be a sticky mess where it begins to look worse than hopeless… especially when Jubilee discovers just what lengths Kieran goes to, to get to the top boss.


Ah, D.J. Manly and A.J. Llewellyn have brought us an exciting, dangerous, tension filled story that draws you in and as you progress through the book, you see actions and reactions and wonder if our two hot law enforcement officers will ever get their happy ending. We find out more about Kieran’s father and we also see a hell of a lot of just what Kieran has to go through when he goes undercover, we see Jubilee struggling to accept Kieran’s role and we see both men in their elements as they work their cases. Will Kieran and Jubilee ever find a way to be together or will they continue to torture themselves on the love that slipped away and hope that the pain will ease with time.


This story isn’t one to miss if you love involved cop stories, although the first two books focused on Reggie and his drugs, this one branches out so we see more of what the Marshal’s and the Canadian Narc’s do so we see more cases, and, I can see that there will be a lot of cross over between the American and Canadian law enforcement before Kieran and Jubilee finally get a bliss filled happy ending. We do get the beginning of a happy ending but it gets interrupted in a most shocking fashion, damn and blasts those authors.


So in all honesty if you love crime, hot Marshal’s, sexy detectives, interesting cases, finding and losing love, struggling for understanding, danger and an ending that will leave you muttering about evil authors and their torture methods then this is the book for you.

Blurb:  Jack Callahan is in a financial bind, so when Australian novelist Bruce Logan offers him a small fortune to marry him so Bruce can get his green card, Jack agrees. The two men know enough about each other to pull off the immigration interview at Homeland Security, and they can happily share an apartment in Los Angeles until Bruce establishes legal residency.

The problem, though, begins when Jack develops feelings for Bruce and becomes torn when his new husband starts dating another man. Not only that, but Bruce’s expected book royalties fall way short of expectations. Now, not only can Bruce not pay Jack the promised “marital fee,” but also it seems that he’s in love with his new man. And with Jack’s lengthy solitude broken, his feelings for Bruce only deepen.

Can the two married men actually find wedded bliss with each other?

Purchase Link:

Review: Okay, let’s just start with the fact that I loved how real this book was – Real from the point that marrying someone for a green card is illegal and will create HUGE legal issues for both parties.  However, this occurs all the time in this country. The notion of this now occurring with two men is an interesting twist and can be sure to become a very regular occurrence when marriage equality is achieved across the nation. So the author takes this premise and then layers it with some Hollywood drama complete with two slightly insecure men, and then two females who’ll help to save them from themselves. 

Jack Callahan is a perfectly nice man and when the reader first meets Bruce, he seems nice enough.  However, mid-way through the book, his charm tarnishes and it doesn’t really return until close to the end of the book.  Jack is a very likable character, Bruce less so; BUT he does redeem himself in the end and one can only relate this to the flaws that anybody would have. Real life enters when finances are not as they seem, libidos get in the way, exes make themselves apparent and feelings get hurt.  The book does a good job of encapsulating a lot of activity taking place in short time frame, and the romance between the men feels very real and true to life rather than seeming like the usual formulaic love story that is usually seen. The story is well paced, well-written with well-developed characters; and, the plot is believable.  Additionally, despite Bruce’s slightly douchy moments, you do want to see him and Jack end up together.  A good read.
