Review: Chris’ brother was part of the near disastrous photo shoot. Dane was sexy as hell Mr. December and needs a massage. This is where the two men start forming a relationship. I loved the way these two connected.
Another sexy, suspense filled story with a great cast of characters.
Blurb: Andy’s planning a feast but it has nothing to do with a holiday and everything to do with the sexy shifter whose heart he’s determined to win.
Andy Cunningham wasn’t thrilled with his month in the charity calendar event—he kind of thought November was a bit undignified. But when he meets Kerry, a sexy buck shifter at the calendar release party, he forgets all about posing during Turkey month and starts planning ways to catch Kerry’s attention—and his heart.
Review: Andy and Kerry meet up after the shoot for some hot fun. Afterwards they both realize it’s more than sex for them. Hot and sexy yet sweet and tender is the way I would describe these two men together.
I loved everything about this story. Sweet and sexy.
Blurb: It’s not just the ghosties and the ghouls that you’ve got to watch out for on Halloween!
Jerome is an artist—in his opinion, anyway. Not everyone would agree that what he does is art, but he’d beg to differ. He has a niche following and his business picks up around Halloween. When a handsome stranger walks into his gallery, the attraction that crackles to life between them is instantaneous, and scarier than anything Jerome has ever created.
He’s quirky and possibly downright weird, but for some reason, the sexy doctor seems to be into him. Jerome isn’t sure he can trust the feelings developing between them, and when someone decides Jerome’s studio needs to go, he fears he’ll never have the chance to see what kind of life he could have with Kaito.
Kaito Yoshida is a successful pediatric oncologist, and a complicated man. As serious as any doctor in his position while working, he’s missed out on a lot of things in his personal life. An encounter that, at first, is mortifying, leads to Kaito daring to take a step he’s never bothered to take before.
He doesn’t expect to fall for Jerome Johnson, or for Jerome to fall for him.
And neither of them expect the obstacles they will encounter on the way to love.
Reader Advisory: Please note that this books contains scenes of violence and references to domestic abuse and the death of children.
Blurb: Summer fades into fall, but the heat isn’t letting up for this calendar man.
Enzo Mueller was glad to help out with the calendar shoot. His little sister, Nat, has been in remission for years and he’d do anything to help find a cure for childhood cancer—even if all he can do is pose for a charity event. That, and work three jobs so he can take care of her since their parents split a long time ago.
But raising a teenager and having a personal life are two things he doesn’t think can coexist. He’s resigned himself to being alone, aside from Nat, until he gets her through college. After all, no man in his right mind would want to deal with Enzo’s crazy work schedule.
Tony met Enzo when he waited on their table. Ever since then, Tony’s had Enzo on his mind, and when he runs into him again, something clicks between them. Tony’s daughter, Ina, finished her last cancer treatments weeks ago and she’s in remission. He’s been focused on her since before she was born, but now, one man is making him wonder if it isn’t possible to have more in life than he’d expected.
Review: Enzo and Tony have been attracted t each since they met through Hector. I loved Enzo’s hard working determination to make sure his sister is provided for. Tony’s daughter Ina gives Tony the excuse he needs to see Enzo by wanting to eat at the restaurant that Enzo works in.
The chemistry between these two men is hot. When they get together the sparks fly off the pages. Sweet yet sexy this was a great addition to the series.
Blurb: Hector thought he’d escaped his past and had nothing to fear by posing for a charity calendar, but he was wrong.
Hector Torres is a self-made man. He came from the wrong side of the tracks and had a difficult childhood. Violence and crime flourished around him, but one particular event sent him running, and he’s been looking back over his shoulder for a long time.
He thought he’d changed enough to take a chance and do something good, especially in light of his closest friend’s daughter being diagnosed with cancer.
But Hector is wrong, and the man who suddenly appears in his life might be his savior—or his executioner.
Reader advisory: This book contains reference to physical child abuse.
Review: Hector’s past comes back in the form of Mat. Mat has a debt to pay to Hector and in doing so he hopes that things will blossom between them. I liked how Hector and Mat never forgot one another after they grew up.
Hector and Mat were well matched and I loved Mat’s shifter side. A truly engaging story and wonderful addition to the series.
Blurb: There are enough skeletons in Felix’s closet to fill up an entire calendar.
Felix Apostolou is a rising star in the art world. His murals are quickly gaining him fame in the San Antonio art scene, and when he’s featured in the Calendar Men charity calendar, he’ll draw in even more attention. As it is, he’s getting commission offers faster than he can process them.
He takes on one mural that holds special meaning for him—one for Ezra Harrington, owner of Quantum, Inc., and close friend to the injured original photographer of the Calendar Men shoot.
What Felix didn’t count on was meeting a man who turned his world around and brought something other than art to focus for him. Tse Soto is intriguing, passionate, and open in ways Felix quickly comes to appreciate.
But Felix’s past isn’t what he believed it to be, and what he learns about it could be more than he can handle.
Review: Felix and Tse were great characters. I loved these two men together. Their strengths and weaknesses added a delightful spin on the story as it progressed. Felix’s past comes back to haunt him and Tse is there to help along the way.
The mystery aspect of the story was well written and intriguing to read as it unfolded. I have enjoyed this series about hunky guys in calendar shoot where things do not go as planned and sometimes dangerous situations arise. It was interesting as how each man handled said situations.
Blurb: Ilias Hayes is coming to believe that there is truth to the saying ‘no good deed goes unpunished.’
Ilias Hayes was flattered when he was asked to pose in a charity calendar shoot. He was even more thrilled to participate when Perry invited his boyfriend, Terry, to pose with Ilias. Being one of the couples in the calendar would cement their relationship.
Except it doesn’t. Terry dumps him, and Ilias realizes just how warped that relationship was. He plans to focus on his career with San Antonio Police Department and work out why he stayed with someone who treated him so badly.
But a call from dispatch about a fight at a doctor’s office brings a very interesting, opinionated man into Ilias’ life. He isn’t sure if Doctor Torres is flirting or not, but Ilias wants to find out—if he can get past his own fears and escape someone who wants Ilias for themselves.
Review: Illias and his boyfriend Terry are part of the calendar shoot when Illias discovers Terry is only with him for his connections. Needless to say Illias and terry part ways. During a call to a doctor’s office Illias meets Dr. Torres and the sparks fly. But Illias is unsure due to the relationship he just got out of.
I loved that Torres was patient and caring with Illias considering his fears. The two seemed made for each other in all ways. Another great addition to the calendar men series.
Blurb: Derrick Tovar thought posing for a calendar would be the most adventurous thing he’d ever do—boy, was he wrong!
Derrick Tovar has always played it safe. He had a secure job, a retirement plan, five- and ten-year goals… When he agreed to pose in skimpy clothing for a charity calendar, he figured that was one daring, out-of-character thing for him to do. It wasn’t that big a risk, really.
Except it almost got him killed.
He’s having a little trouble dealing with that, but he soon meets a man who makes him want to dream big and take chances.
Review: Derrick and Niall were a great couple. Derrick has plans and rules he follows to the letter as well as deep seated fear. Niall on the other hand is free spirited and fun loving. When these two get together they set the pages on fire.
I loved these two together. They help the other in ways no one else can. The fear Derrick has is understandable given what he went through and Niall helping him understand there is nothing wrong with seeking help when it is needed.
Blurb: Will is certain there’s truth to the phrase that no good deed goes unpunished.
William Blunt thought posing for a charity calendar would be fun. Instead, it’s kind of tedious and stressful, and his boyfriend begins to display some alarmingly jealous behavior. Once the shoot is over—again—he’s ready to move on to other things, one of which is, eventually, a healthier relationship.
Breaking up isn’t hard to do, and Will vows to learn from his past dating disasters. What he doesn’t count on is meeting a man whose smile turns his world upside down. Baz is gorgeous, but more than that, he’s intriguing and funny, and he seems to be as interested in Will as Will is in him.
But all is not smooth sailing, and a murder complicates the personal issues both men are already struggling with.
Review: A great addition to the series with Will and Baz in the middle of a murder mystery as well as the complication in Will’s life. Baz for his part is smart and funny and seemed to be Wills equal.
The overall feel of the story has an intriguing and relaxed atmosphere at times to culminate the mystery in it’s depths as well as the relationship nature of the characters. I liked this story with it’s mystery, humor and romance. You can never go wrong with that combination.
Jason Eddings is a foreman for a construction company by day and a mountain lion at night. He got suckered into doing a calendar shoot. Little did he know that his sisters, Cindy and Anne, were hoping to set him up with Gregg, another man on the calendar shoot. That never happened, because Gregg met Albert.
Jason’s posing for Mr. March, working and running from some memories, and maybe even himself. One night, he runs right into a tranquilizer dart. When he wakes up at a wildlife refuge, he finds himself intrigued by the veterinarian who is watching him.
Casey’s a newly graduated veterinarian. He thought there was something special about the mountain lion, but he didn’t have a clue how much his life was about to change.
Reader Advisory: This book contains mentions of stalking and harrassment, as well as scenes of violence, assault, kidnap and reference to murder.
Review: Wow what a great story. Casey takes care of a mountain lion brought into the clinic but he quickly realizes it’s a shifter. Jason wakes up and is annoyed and worried that he was tranqed on refuge land. This prompts Casey and Jason to investigate to find out what is going on.
I loved this couple. They had their sexy times as well as serious moments as well. The investigation had great details that I highly enjoyed reading. This series just keeps getting better and better with each book.
I am looking forward to the next book in the series.
Blurb: One cool cat is about to discover just how hot love can be.
Darin Winger is beginning to regret ever volunteering to be a model for the charity calendar. There’s already been an attack on all the people working on the photo shoot, which resulted in a nasty case of food poisoning for Darin and others. Then there was the fire at Marco’s place, which had resulted in the photographer being injured. To what extent, Darin doesn’t know, but now the photo shoot is back on, and Marco’s daughter Perry is in charge of everything.
Which would be fine, except the weather causes delays, people cause delays, almost everything causes delays—and Darin is ready to return to his regularly scheduled life as a nurse and dog shifter. If one more thing goes wrong…
The last straw might be the arrival of an uptight feline shifter named Arturo Casarez, who demands that Perry move the photo shoot off the grounds of the museum.
Except there’s something about Arturo that calls to Darin. Now he’ll have to convince Arturo to give him a chance.
Review: With one delay after another everyone is wondering whether or not the photo shoot will be completed. Darin is one such person. He is Mr. February and wants to get back to his life as soon as possible but with the way things are going it looks like it won’t be soon enough for tastes.
Arturo is the curator of the museum where the photo shoot is taking place for this particular month. But he is not amused when the models are prancing around in next to nothing with school children present and so offers to move the shoot to his land instead. Now the fun can begin.
Darin and Arturo are shifters of the canine and feline variety. Who says cats and dogs can not get along. These two certainly heat things up in this story. I liked this book better than the first which is weird because I usually love all Bailey Bradford’s books. But then again even I have off days when reviewing.
Blurb: There’s no sense in pussy-footing around when it comes to love.
Albert E. Washington is a nerd and proud of it. He’s a cool cat when he shifts, but for the most part, he’s just a guy who sometimes tapes his glasses together and enjoys quality clothing like bowties and suspenders. When his boss has him acting as an errand boy, Albert finds himself in the middle of a sexy calendar photo shoot. It’s a little too much for him to process and he ends up embarrassing himself.
Gregg is Mr. January—or he will be if the photo shoot ever gets going. Injuring his back when he trips on the set isn’t going to speed things up. The appearance of a seriously hot guy who flips the switch on Gregg’s geeky-man button makes a bad day great. Now, if Gregg can just get Albert to agree to a date, if he doesn’t scare Albert off, if Albert will just pick up on the flirtatious things Gregg says…
That’s a lot of ifs, but Gregg isn’t intimidated by them. He knows his dream man when he meets him. Now all Gregg has to do is survive the photo shoot and convince Albert to give him, and love, a chance.
Review: If your looking for a series similar to the southwestern shifters this is not it. I was a little confused by the shifter aspect as it seemed more a contemporary read to me. Never the less it is a hot story about geeky Albert who meets hunky Gregg on calendar photo shoot.
Sparks fly and we see how the relationship blossoms step by step. There is a mystery that seems to affect most of the models and not in a good way. I really love this authors works but I’m unsure how to feel about this one.
As I said this felt more contemporary to me with a lot of hot sex between two men who are looking for love.
