Blurb: All James wanted was a little solitude at his favorite resort: bright sunshine overhead, soft, white sand underfoot, and a hammock to read in while the warm breeze rustles through the coconut palms and almond trees. However, when an old acquaintance shows up, and James is obliged to share “his” beach, a profound exchange over a bottle of rum leads to a lust-fuelled encounter in the dark.

Reeling from the intensity of the drunken tryst, James decides to cut his vacation short rather than face what he’s kept hidden under mountains of denial.

However, his escape is thwarted when Rudie, handsome and plainspoken, calls him out on his behavior and makes him see that life needn’t be spent running away from his desires.

Set at a rundown old resort on a small Caribbean island, The Last Nights of The Frangipani Hotel is a story about letting go of fear and learning that passion and love can be found in the most unexpected of places.

Reviewer: KathyMac

Review: As the author narrates the story, mostly threw the voice of James, an actor on hiatus who craves silence and a solitary existence, we find him where he vacations on an island in the Caribbean surrounded by the solitude he craves. The Last Nights of the Frangipani Hotel will pull you in, as though you are there on the island watching from the distance.

Bey Deckard is a masterful storyteller and with his descriptions and details that set up the backdrop of this story, you have a perfect visual of two men, both different yet so much alike, looking to belong…to something or someone.

Rudie, also an actor, stumbles onto “James’s beach” looking for his own rest and relaxation. At first, James is a little put out that he now has company encroaching on his island, as he likes to refer to it, but he soon realizes that having company is not so bad.

James’s denial runs deep about his wants and desires but the hidden truths that have plagued him for many years are starting to surface, as he watches Rudie from a distance. The big question is will he be able to accept the change that Rudie has brought out in him? Will he be able to turn his brain off and enjoy their moments together?

James has a couple of bouts of panic but Rudie brings him back with his words and understanding. He even experiences a bit of jealousy and is surprised by the intensity of his feelings. However, he knows their time is coming to an end and he wants to make the most of it.

Rudie has darker needs that he is not afraid to voice. As their last days dwindle down, James succumbs to his own needs that are no longer hidden in the recesses of his mind. Giving Rudie what he begs for without restraint and an urgency he has never felt with anyone else, he accepts his true self.

“Teeth bared, I nearly shook with panic and anger and desire as I pushed his legs apart. He didn’t resist. I threw myself down on him, my weight sinking him into the mattress as I grasped my cock and guided it, thrusting into him hard.”
— James

Their time together behind the shutters and closed doors are sometimes rough and miscalculated, but no less intense and moving. They also share pieces of themselves with no expectations in the light of day.

James arrived on the island a lonely and somewhat critical man but he will leave with a new outlook on his future and new possibilities to explore. He finds himself smiling at what lies ahead, but more importantly…the man that he will see.

An incredible short story that is packed full of emotions and new discoveries. If you read, The Complications of T, you will catch a small reference that will bring a smile to your face and if you didn’t it wasn’t relevant enough to throw you off kilter.

Bey Deckard is brilliant with writing lyrical prose and this story is no different with its smooth and flawless execution. One of the things I love best reading stories by this author is I always learn something. Whether it’s new words, phrases, or a spot on the map, I always take away new knowledge and I love that.

I highly recommend this novella to anyone who loves to fall into a story where the author cloaks you with words and descriptions and you are mesmerized until the end.

Stuart Leandro knows he’s washed up, both on the big screen, and in his marriage. Then, when things take an even bigger turn for the worse one night, he winds up blind drunk and lost in a foreign city.

Thankfully, someone’s there to rescue him before his face ends up plastered all over the tabloids.

Wary of the motives of the reclusive stranger who brings the fading star into the quiet shelter of a hip but isolated loft, Stuart nonetheless can’t deny his curiosity… Or his attraction. Tim is unlike anyone the actor has ever met, but underneath the mystery and quiet attempts at invisibility, Stuart discovers someone whose life has been intertwined with his own for years.

Neither could have predicted that Tim’s act of kindness would lead to one of the most intense encounters of their lives—but, are they willing to weather the media storm their extraordinary relationship will cause?

Reviewer: KathyMac

Review: Bey Deckard tells the story of Stuart, an actor who has lost his mojo, his marriage, and, at the time, appears he may be falling off the wagon, of sobriety. Forced to the take the hand of a stranger… to avoid the tabloids smearing his drunken face all over for the world to see, sets into motion an affirmation of life.

Waking up in a strange bed, surrounded by unfamiliar walls, is the beginning and the end for Stuart. Confronting his savior, across a cup of coffee, puts a tingle of apprehension in his stomach. It’s a very eye-opening experience on many levels.

The complications of T, translate to more than one meaning, as I read this short tale about Tim, born a woman but always knew he was a man. With the transition complete, in body, he still has a ways to go, in mind. Not really his own mind, but exposing himself to others.

The beautiful thing about the story is the way Stuart opens up his heart and mind to accept Tim for who he is not what he was or what society wants him to be. In Stuart’s words – It’s all rubbish anyway. I thought. What point was there in getting caught up in tiny details that didn’t actually matter? All that mattered to me, right then and there, was that I felt like I was at the very beginning of something incredible.

Over the course of a week, Tim and Stuart, share everything, as much as possible within that time frame, from laughing and sharing memories to realizing they have a lot in common. They both want more but Tim has a few stipulations before he is willing to uproot from his safe haven.

Will they still have their strong connection when they are miles apart?

My takeaway from this inspiring and uplifting tale is it really doesn’t matter what your plumbing is if you have a connection with someone. Life can change in an instant and while fancy possessions are nice to have and/or claim to fame is rewarding, those things are pointless if your life is miserable. Finding that spark or connection with another human being is what’s important.

Tim offers himself, freely, to Stuart and they both find themselves eager to explore these new revelations… together.

Reviewer: KathyMac

Review: Murphy and Sarge are fighting a war that should have ended years ago. They all know it is money and greed that keep them there, but for now they continue to fight the fight. Murphy was injured on his last mission but he seems to be on his way to recovering very well.

By now, the crew knows, or they think they know, what goes on behind their closed door. Murphy is a little embarrassed, but he holds his head up just the same.

Sarge wears his tough and abrasive personality in front of his crew, at all times, but he’s realizing how much Murphy has softened him up, and he just shakes his head in disbelief. When it’s just the two of them, they are like poetry in motion. Murphy loves, LOVES, submitting to Sarge and being at his beck and call. He will do whatever he needs, or what Sarge needs, to serve him.

Sarge puts Murph through his paces, knowing the whole time what it’s doing to him, or to certain body parts. When they engage in sex their spark is like a force field ready to ignite. It is powerful and explosive. Murphy has the ability to see colors, an aurora that lets him know Sarge is more than happy when they are together.

As the Marines prepare for their next mission, something is not right. Both, Sarge and Murph, feel it they just don’t know what it is. Murphy is having trouble with his leg working properly but chooses to keep it to himself, right now.

The team splits up and that puts Sarge on alert. Their mission is simple, or so they were led to believe, but they soon find out it is more than they were told. As trouble ensues and they are left to their own devices will the other team members find them before it’s too late?

And, something is happening to Murphy causing his vision to blur, colors are going haywire, and he is struggling to stand. Sarge is going ballistic and he aims to kill. He needs answers even though he knows he won’t like the ones he hears. Is it possible they were set up?

Bey Deckard has an incredible ability to write beautiful prose that will suck you in and make you thankful for the experience. Murphy is a short story, much like Sarge, with enough action and drama that you would swear it was a full length novel. You know it’s not because you keep looking at the page count hoping the end is not in sight.

As I have come to expect with anything that has Bey attached to it, the execution is smooth and flawless and the descriptive narrative will catapult you into the story. The sex scenes are just as beautiful, which sounds a little weird with it being two marines, but hey…that’s the way it is.

Sarge reminiscing with himself about Murphy…

Gorgeous and gifted with as much brains as brawn…and unwaveringly and completely mine. I grit my teeth and blink hard.

There must be dust in my eye.

He rescued me, my boy. From myself, mostly. And, you can bet your ass that from now until forever, I’m going to make every single goddamn second count.

Even if you think to yourself, I don’t like sci-fi, don’t let it deter you with this series. I don’t like it either, however, I love everything Bey Deckard. Maybe we should make a new genre called, WhateverBeywrites. 

Reviewer: Tootsie

Review: CAGED by Bey Deckard will leave you breathless and wondering what just happened. The first word that came to me when I finished this was simply WOW! I have no reservations in stating that this was one of the best books I have read this year. Being a reviewer, and overall lover of reading, I have read many this year already. Many that I have had a strong connection too. Caged is in a category of its own.

Bey Deckard is a new author, not only to me, but this is his first published novel. What a gift and talent this author possesses to write a novel of this calibre. The research he must have taken speaks highly of his devotion in capturing this story to the fullest. The details and descriptions in his novel are mind-boggling. The language transcribed is perfect for this setting and is staggering how quickly you will succumb to understand its meaning. A few authors come to mind when I think about being placed in the setting that I am reading. Bey has taken that to a new level.

Not only are you in the story witnessing the events, you are no longer present in your real life world. When you read CAGED for yourself be sure to have the time to give it the attention and dedication it demands from you. You will be doing a disservice to yourself if you don’t.

This is historical novel with pirates on the open sea. In addition, there is a sense of dark erotica always in the background waiting to make its move. I’ve read many posts where people say, “I don’t like historical, nor will I read it, ever.” To me, that is really sad that readers are not willing to open their imagination and give historical a try. How unfortunate they will never know the vast joy you will evoke from such a tale.

Yeah, some things are hard to understand. Some words are hard to translate, therefore, pulling you from the story. But if you give it a chance, I believe, you will soon be reading the words as if it is your own language. If you allow yourself to delve inside the story, the words will give you their meanings. Bey Deckard has created three, very intense, powerful, engaging, extremely sexy, intelligent, (hmm, looks as though I could go on and on) men who need each other more than they ever realize.

Jon, a young man is his early twenties, has spent his life under the dictation of his evil stepfather. After losing his mother, the only person to ever show him love, at the early age of four, Jon was never touched, hugged, nor loved by anyone, again. He has a special gift, probably the only thing that keeps his stepfather from ridding himself of Jon. He has the gift of empathy. He has always been curious to the actions and demeanour of others. He can watch someone, listen to them, mimic their behaviour, and tell if that person is lying or telling the truth. A gift his stepfather uses relentlessly against him by making him interview prisoners.

Jon’s stepfather is a lawman and he uses his power and position against Jon, daily. His whole life is about to change, unbeknownst to Jon, when he is kidnapped by a pirates and cast out into the open seas. Will he sink or swim? One look at the captain and Jon is overcome with feelings he doesn’t understand.

And the first mate, Tom, who has muscles galore and laughs at everything. But, why does he have whip marks covering his entire back? Jon doesn’t understand any of this, but soon he will. Pained by his traitorous thoughts and feelings yet to be explored, Jon will no longer be a boy of doubt but a man of fortitude and wisdom.

Captain Baltsaros and Tom are hard-headed, hard skinned, seasoned pirates who would kill you instantly and never bat an eye. These two have a lot of history together. A history they keep close to the vest and share very little of. Jon finds himself completely and whole-heartedly fascinated by both men.

He wonders what it would be like to participate in some of the late night encounters he hears from across the room. Sometimes he hears noises that sound as though they are in pain. Other times he is sure the sounds he hears are brought about by pleasure. It is very titillating for Jon as he lies quietly in the dark listening. To be a part of something, to be wanted, caressed and cherished are things he knows little about. Soon, very soon, he will know first-hand how it feels to be in the clutches of the Captain.

A position he realizes, very quickly, he wants. Being an empath, he knows he can’t trust either one. That doesn’t deter him when he finds himself under the hands and strokes of the Captain and his first mate. Jon is enthralled by both men, captivated by their strength and honed bodies. How far will he go in order to please the Captain?

Tom was a prisoner and subjected to pain and torment for many years. Rescued by the Captain and now his first mate, Tom still has nightmares and an evil streak that has no conscience. There will be times, as you read, that Tom’s pain is so poignant and gut wrenching that you may stumble through this journey.

He is at his most beautiful when he exposes his inner self to the Captain and his pleasures. You will be a witness to his turmoil, his volatile behaviour, but you quickly find yourself drawn to this man who carries so much pain and he wears the proof on his back. You will be a cheerleader for Tom hoping against hope that he can find his happy ever after. His laugh is contagious and even though is heart is damaged he carries his wants and desires like an open book.

Captain Baltsaros is an evil man to anyone who cares to look. But beyond his tough exterior, is a man who loves passionately. By way of light touches and forceful kisses, he enraptures his captive and forms a bond that scares him to his core. Their journey across the wild and open seas will have you captivated and entrenched in their world so deeply. The ending is upon you before you are ready. There is always an undercurrent that will have your own emotions brought to the forefront of this story.

Never knowing from one minute to the next what is in store for the ship and crew will have you on the edge of your seat. The secrets that have been long hidden will come out and play. As each secret is exposed your own sensibilities will keep throwing you back into confusion realizing things are never as they appear.

Bey Deckard has written a long and eventful novel that will bring you to your knees as you uncover secret after secret. You will feel exposed and vulnerable as you sit back and witness the pain and turmoil these amazing characters incur. The author has used many vivid descriptions that will drawl you in and hold you hostage, as well, as you travel across the sea. You will experience their turmoil as your own feelings ricochet from one character to the next.

This story is alive and the emotions so palpable that you will have just cause to take a break or two as you live through them. The sex between the three men is oftentimes dangerous and rough. The pleasure experienced, however, will leave you with a magnitude of feelings you have to rationalize for yourself. The character growth that the MC’s go through will leave you astonished. The crew members aboard the ship are like a beating heart that keeps it going strong. Being under duress will only strengthen the crew and you will see them at their finest.

I consider Bey Deckard a masterful storyteller who has given us words on a page that will forever be embedded in my heart. Coming soon is the sequel to Caged, titled Sacrificed, which has left me with jitters and nervous energy contemplating its content. This is not JUST a historical, not JUST a story of pirates and a crew. This is a masterpiece brought about by men with so much wisdom and experience and so much passion that the open seas is the only place large enough to let it breathe and unfold.

Regardless, the open sea has nothing on the turbulent feelings you will encounter. Amazing, amazing story that deserves an audience to celebrate, in my opinion, an award-winning debut. Kudos to Bey Deckard and his incredible gift of the written word, and for so graciously sharing it with us.
