Blurb: Sometimes you have to get dirty to come clean.

When muscle-bound Denver Rogers effortlessly dispatches the frat boys harassing grad student Adam Ellery at the Tucker Springs laundromat, Adam’s thank-you turns into impromptu sex over the laundry table. The problem comes when they exchange numbers. What if Adam wants to meet again and discovers Denver is a high-school dropout with a learning disability who works as a bouncer at a local gay bar? Or what if Denver calls Adam only to learn while he might be brilliant in the lab, outside of it he has crippling social anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder?

Either way, neither of them can shake the memory of their laundromat encounter. Despite their fears of what the other might think, they can only remember how good the other one feels. The more they get together, the kinkier things become. They’re both a little bent, but in just the right ways. 

Maybe the secret to staying together isn’t to keep things clean and proper. Maybe it’s best to keep their laundry just a little bit dirty.

Review: This is the 2nd edition and while it has been tweaked and brushed up there’s no change to the story.

Adam is being harassed by frat boys when he does his laundry. Lucky for him, sexy cowboy, Denver, comes to his rescue and Adam ends up bent over the Laundromat table having the time of his life, after he thanks his savior. Denver can’t get Adam out of his head, even seeing all the other hot geeky twinks at work doesn’t stop him wanting Adam.  Adam seemed to want the same kind of play as Denver enjoys, but Denver has to wait for Adam to make the first move.

This is a wonderful story of working past your limitations and embracing your quirks. Adam suffers from OCD, he has a lot of quirks that go with it and he has to work hard to keep his panic attacks at bay. When Adam first meets Denver he tries to hide his problems, believing that if Denver found out about his mental health, then he would want nothing to do with him. Denver has his own problem which holds him back, he works as a bouncer because the job he really wants means going back to school and he just can’t deal with books.  dating Adam makes him want to try though and both men have to face their problems.

Denver and Adam are a couple that you wouldn’t think would work, but both their personalities are perfectly synced. they draw out the best in each other and are very encouraging when it comes to their individual problems. The one thing you could never doubt is how hot they are together, and we get the pleasure of seeing how hot they are together with their kinks, and although there are elements of BDSM, we really only see the kink side, with Adam reminiscing about the more mainstream BDSM.

I will admit that when I first started the book and for the first couple of chapters I thought it was going to be the typical BDSM Dom/sub story, but we get so much more than that. We get their everyday fears and the mental health problems they face, but we also see how their kinks work with the OCD. Adam and his OCD are written incredible well, with his fears being dealt with instead of being glossed over. Denver’s learning disability was covered and handled quite well, and his reaction to the knowledge was perfectly described. Both these characters’ worm their way into your affections because they are both so incredibly sweet with each other, they try to protect each other in their own way and they both dread the other finding out the truth about them.

I will recommend this to those who love geeks and cowboys, dealing with mental health problems head on, some hot kink and BDSM elements, gaining control of your life and finding your own flawed true love.

Santa Daddy


Keira Andrews

Mall Santas aren’t supposed to be hot.

Hunter Adams is hopelessly adrift after college. He’s still a virgin, can’t find a real job, and has no clue what to do with his life. In desperation, he returns to his humiliating old job as an elf at the Santa’s Village in his hometown’s dying mall. The Santa on the job is an unexpectedly sexy lumberjack, twice Hunter’s size and age. He makes Hunter feel very naughty—too bad he’s grumpy and intimidating.

Years after the tragic death of his partner, Nick Spini has his beagle and long, hard days on his Christmas tree farm. That’s plenty. But he can’t refuse a loyal friend’s plea for help and finds himself filling in as Santa at the local mall. Despite Nick’s attempt to stay aloof, the beautiful, anxious young man playing elf brings out his long-dormant daddy instincts.

When a surprise blizzard traps them alone in Nick’s isolated forest home, their attraction burns even brighter. Will they surrender to the sizzling connection between them and find the release and comfort they crave?

Santa Daddy is a holiday gay romance from Keira Andrews featuring an age gap, steamy m/m first times, daddy role-playing and light spanking, Christmas romance feels, and of course a happy ending.

Reviewer: Napoleon A. Chase

Review: I am reading this after already having read the first of the series, and so my judgment is primarily as a series rather than standalone. Again: solid, polished writing that is in no need of editing.

The pairings are a rich blushing virgin, and a rich inventor who wants to be spanked because apparently that absolves him of his crimes. Not my type, but I know plenty of readers enjoy that.

However, we get into racial description problems right from page 1. “Dark” skin is not really descriptive beyond “not white” and has been a lazy skin descriptor of lighter folk for far too long – what “dark” means to white, white-passing, and other pale-skinned people is quite different than what is “dark” to readers who are not.

That said, I’m glad to see someone who’s not light-skinned being portrayed attractively, however briefly. I just wish it wasn’t in a stereotypically servile role, especially when there are no other characters of his portrayed race represented in higher/more respected capacities.

The clinical language used for Joon’s robotic perceptions of sex are immersive, and at points help to show a shift in demeanor.

I’m unnerved that this is the second book in a row describing a blue-eyed, Caucasian man as the type of man virtually everyone finds most desirable. Again, we have an Asian patron fawning over a constructed white guy who is beautiful because he is as white as can be. Joon too engages in this type of behavior, absolutely smitten with a white guy and his lovingly described pale skin. There is a major plot point which only further ‘enhances’ this kind of narrative, which I won’t spoil here. I understand internalized racism; it’s just gutting to see it in action.

This work is less vanilla than the last. BDSM is prevalent, as are multiple partners. Prostitution and promiscuity is normalized in this world, to the point anyone not perusing both frequently is considered eccentric.

Though it’s anime science full-throttle, the transition from robot to human reads as metaphorical to me: as someone in a highly dissociated state coming to terms with themself, their emotions and their mortality.

Enjoyed a brief nod to previous characters from the prior work without making things not make sense.

Came Upon A Midnight Clear


Katie Porter

Up-and-coming film producer Kyle Wakefield lives in the closet rather than risk the wrath of his influential, conservative parents. The only time he took a chance on love was a tempestuous teenage affair with Nathan Carnes. But when Nathan proved himself hell-bent on self-destruction and wound up in prison, Kyle closed off his heart.

Almost a decade later, Kyle’s production partner hires Nathan’s stunt company, Second Chances, to work on a big-budget action film in London. Nate is floored by his explosive reunion with Kyle. But he sure as hell isn’t surprised that Kyle still treats their mutual needs—and Nate—like dirty little secrets.

As the London holiday season casts its dazzling spell, the two men find themselves falling in love again. Kyle is one breathless kiss away from declaring himself to Nate—and to the world—but they cannot ignore secrets borne of youthful mistakes. To protect their bright new future, Kyle and Nathan will need all their passion and trust . . . and a little Christmas magic.

Publisher’s note: This is a lightly edited reprint of a previously published novel.

Now Eric is the kidnapper. Snatching Aiden’s twenty-two-year-old son, Chase, for a multi-million-dollar ransom is the only way to get justice.

Now it’s his ticket to a deep connection and amazing sex with his “captor.” On the rocky island where they’re sequestered, Chase finds Eric to be everything he wants in a man: quiet, strong, capable, and honorable . . . until he finds out he’s been captured for real.

Length: Novella (131pgs)

Heat Level: Moderate     

Heart Rating:  ♥♥♥♥3½ Hearts 

Reviewer: Pixie     

Blurb: Love is the greatest outlaw of all.

Vali Florescu, heir to a powerful local boyar, flees his father’s cruelty to seek his fortune in the untamed Carpathian forests. There he expects to fight ferocious bandits and woo fair maidens to prove himself worthy of returning to depose his tyrannical father. But when he is ambushed by Mihai Roscat, the fearsome Crimson Outlaw, he discovers that he’s surprisingly happy to be captured and debauched instead.

Mihai, once an honored knight, has long sought revenge against Vali’s father, Wadim, who killed his lord and forced him into a life of banditry. Expecting his hostage to be a resentful, spoiled brat, Mihai is unprepared for the boy to switch loyalties, saving the lives of villagers and of Mihai himself during one of Wadim’s raids. Mihai is equally unprepared for the attraction between them to deepen into love.

Vali soon learns that life outside the castle is not the fairy tale he thought, and happy endings must be earned. To free themselves and their people from Wadim’s oppression, Vali and Mihai must forge their love into the spear-point of a revolution and fight for a better world for all.

Review: Vali might be heir to the local powerful boyar but it doesn’t make him exempt from punishment, when he tries to save his sister from an unwanted marriage Vali begins to learn that his father isn’t a good lord like he thought. Escaping from prison Vali is determined to return when he has proved himself, but he gets caught up in the plight of a local village and succumbs to a bandits seduction. Mihai is a bandit who wants revenge, his lord and many of his friends were killed when Vali’s father, Wadim, wanted their land, now he does what he can to make life easier on all the villages under Wadim’s rule. When he comes across Vali, he expects to take him hostage to force Wadim’s hand but he discovers the son is far different from the father and begins to fall for him. Both men have to fight for what they want but will they be able to get the results they both want without bloodshed?

This is a cute little story of wanted adventure and hard reality, of men from different walks of life meeting and loving and of a tyrant whose son finds it hard to hate him. Vali is a young man who doesn’t realize his actions affect others, he doesn’t think that his father is a bad lord even though he is a harsh father and he still has rose-tinted glasses of what is happening in the world outside his castle. Mihai knows the truth about the tyranny of Wadim, he has lived through it and wants nothing more than to make the man pay, and he does so in a small way when he helps local villagers. When these two men come together they find common ground and an instant attraction that neither one fights. 

This is a pretty good story that takes us back to a time when lords were god and everyone else was fodder. Vali is nineteen and sometimes comes across as whimsical in his feelings, he also seems to war with himself about his feelings for his father. He finally sees what his father is really like but still can’t believe it, wanting to give his father the chance to do the right thing. Mihai has plans for Vali when he first discovers him but rapidly changes his mind, and the two together make a great couple as they recover and make plans. Vali doesn’t make, as much progress in the maturity stakes as you would expect with everything that he sees and goes through, it was more superficial stuff he thought of. 

I recommend this if you love historicals with great details, bandits ravishing innocents, taking control of your life and finding happiness against the odds. 

Montana Red by Jane Elliot

Author: Jane Elliot

Genre: Western

Length: Novel (228 pages)

Publisher:Manifold Press (August 1st, 2013)

Heat Level: Very Explicit

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥5Hearts

Reviewer: Cat

Blurb:Red. He’s happy enough at first to be having sex with a man – Heaven knows, it’s better than what he’s running away from! – but it isn’t too long before Red’s sexual extravagances are driving the two of them apart. It’s only when Henry’s trying to manage on his own again that he at last begins to achieve a little perspective – on inversion in general, on himself in particular, and even on his relationship with Red. That’s when he starts to wonder if maybe there isn’t a way back for them after all, but this time it will definitely have to be on his terms …

Purchase Link: http://www.manifoldpress.co.uk/2013/07/montana-red/

Review:Henry was running away from his old life when a group of gangsters attacked and left him for dead. Red is surprised to find a naked man almost dead in his gulley.

Henry survives and they become friends though Henry liked things about Red and the ranch there was a lot he didn’t like.

This story is very complicated but in a good way. None of these characters are your average character and this is far from a sweet storybook romance, but I found it fabulous. I couldn’t put it down once I started.

There are so many twists and turns, some good, some bad; that it really made you wonder especially about Red. I adored the relationship between the two men with their ups and downs and misunderstandings, and how both loved the other in his own way after both were so different.

I sure didn’t see the turnaround coming in Henry, but loved it, as much as the change in Red, though it wasn’t the expected. I think this what I loved so much was it was unexpected, it has harsh sometimes brutal moments though none cruel. I also liked the ending and found it pretty satisfying, yet surprising.
I highly recommend this if you like stories based in the old west, gay ranchers, rough sex, unexpected twists, characters that change and grow, lots of hot mansex, good BDSM and a satisfactory happy for now ending.

Blurb:  Since the death of his submissive lover two years ago, Leo hasn’t been living—merely existing. He focuses on making Collars & Cuffs, a BDSM club in Manchester’s gay village, successful. That changes the night he and his business partner have their weekly meeting at Severinos. Leo can’t keep his eyes off the new server. The shy man seems determined to avoid Leo’s gaze, but that’s like a red rag to a bull. Leo loves a challenge.

Alex Daniels works at Severinos to scrape together the money to move out on his own. He struggles with coming out, but he’s drawn to Leo, the gorgeous guy with the icy-blue eyes who’s been eating in his area nearly every night.

Leo won’t let Alex’s hesitance get in the way. He even keeps him away from the club so as not to scare him. And as for telling Alex that Leo is a Dom? Not a good idea. One date becomes two, but date two leads to Leo’s bedroom… and Alex discovers things about himself he never realized—and never wanted anyone to see.

Reviewer:   Pammie

Review:  A love story, with D/s.

I enjoyed this one. D/s yes, but one that focuses on the pleasure of submitting, and the freedom it gives. I loved the characters. Leo and Alex make a great combination of experience and naivety. I liked their gradual evolution to both D/s, and loving couple.

However, Alex did make me groan when he didn’t lock his room door, and fell victim to his nasty younger brother a second time. Also that an experienced Dom like Leo needed to be told to make his declaration – but hey, that’s love.

If you like BDSM, kink, a hot couple, sizzling sex, and a HEA this is for you.

In exchange for technology and medical advancements, the United States government allows the Narsoreal to collect and bond with the country’s “unwanted” citizens. In one city, a Narsoreal bond-matcher has set his sights on a small band of male and female prostitutes in desperate need of salvation. Each of the five has unique needs, but it just might be that there is a Narsoreal ready and willing to meet every one of them.

Shannon’s Solace: Every day is a struggle for survival, and Shannon often feels like everything is out of his control. He longs for someone to come into his life and offer him some peace, be the one he can lean on, and maybe someday forgive him his past and love him anyway.

Derek’s Bliss: His every breath a struggle, Derek attempts to live out the remainder of his life with some measure of dignity while also preparing his little family of misfits for a time when he won’t be there for them. Then the alien bond-matcher who swept Shannon off his feet has a proposal for Derek: Bonded Narsoreal have been known to cure their matches of just about everything. Is Derek willing to bond with an alien to save his own life?

Joel’s Protection: The baby of the family at just eighteen, Joel feels useless, adrift, and like everyone’s the boss of him. He jumps at the chance to match with his fairytale prince and live happily ever after. But though he’s matched just like Shannon and Derek, Joel is still treated like a directionless kid. An opportunity for a hot public display of affection during a party just might guarantee that no one will ever think Joel’s a kid from now on. He just has to step up and take one more chance.

Ambrosia’s Worth: Ambrosia is all woman despite being genetically male. She likes who she is, how she looks, and she’s not changing for any man. Not even for an alien who’s supposed to love her forever—if that’s even real. To save herself from being alone and sinking even farther down the poverty line, Ambrosia consents to a match…only to have him turn tail and run at the sight of her. Proven right again about love being the real fairytale here, she decides to live a great life one her own. But then he comes back, determined to make their connection work, and Ambrosia has to decide if her stubborn pride is more important than maybe—just maybe—falling in love.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This is the first story in a 5-part series available individually and as a whole sold under the title “The Unwanted” which will be available by the end of 2013. Reading each story in order is recommended.

Review:  Living on the fringes of society, they are ‘The Unwanted’ and this is their story.

This series is centered around an unusual group of friends that consider themselves a family.  And an alien race, Nasoreal, that have taken solace on our planet. The aliens traveled light years from their planet to ours because they were gay and thus not allowed to bond on their planet. They are allowed to look for a bond mate among earths unwanted and forgotten members of society in exchange for their knowledge and medicines that can cure most human diseases.

Shannon aka Shots, is a gay male prostitute that sells himself in order to provide for himself and his family. One of his clients turns out to be not only a Narsoreal, but the one that is in charge of matching bond mates. Alimund is immediately taken with Shannon and knowing they are a match, he begins the bonding process. Will Shannon accept the bond, or reject Alimund and the prospect of a life where he doesn’t have to turn tricks to put food on the table?

Derek, the head of this family of misfits, is dying. He has VIS one of the few diseases that the Nasoreal were not able to provide a cure for. While attempting to secure a residence for his family he was raped by the previous owner, thus contracting the disease. When Alimund meets Derek he brings him back to his home with the hopes of finding him a Nasoreal mate that can possibly prolong his life through the bond. Enter Joss. The tall, dark and handsome alien that is the angel of Derek’s dreams.

Joel is the baby of the family. Everything that Shannon and Derek have done is to protect and shelter him, to ensure he would never have to endure the pain they have on the streets. The elder men can’t move forward with their bond mates unless they are assured that the rest of their family will be given the opportunity as well. Alimund has found Joel’s match, a gentle giant. Joel quickly learns that not only does he like to watch, but he likes to be watched as well.

Ambrosia is a full on diva bitch wrapped up in a man’s body! Derek, Shannon and Joel have to all but twist her arm, but she finally concedes and comes to Alimunds home so she can meet her match. Things don’t go quite so smoothly this time around when a gay alien that has traveled a long way to be able to mate with a man thinks he’s been mated with a woman. I really don’t recommend pissing off the diva, but that is exactly what Ambrosia’s mate does. Her fight or flight instinct kicks in and she is going to make a run for it. Unless her intended pulls his head out of his ass.

I love the concept of the world in these stories. It’s so commonplace in our society to put labels on people like ‘unwanted’ and assume they don’t deserve anything. It was such fun to read each installment and see the relationships unfold then grow. My favorite part was Alimunds key to knowing who was bonded, through the eyes. I’ve always said the eyes are the window to the soul, so I like Jameson’s twist on soul mates in this story. I also liked the transformations that a couple of the aliens took on to please their mate.

I highly recommend this series of short stories. Jameson is descriptive not only with the sex (which is hot, steamy, passionate and sometimes corny, but good) but with each character and their story. How they got where they are and how they are overcoming it. My personal favorite so far is Joel’s story, but I can’t wait for the final installment, Renzo’s Redemption in July!

Blurb: Sean Gordon returns from the war in Afghanistan with a bad leg, no job, and a heart grieving for lost friends. Lonely and searching, he’s interested in exploring his submissive side but can’t even tell his own family he’s gay. He’s unable to find a strong man to fulfill his deepest, most shameful fantasies and sees only a bleak, unhappy future.

Everything changes when he meets Roman Mahoney, part of a secret group of former soldiers who live in Philadelphia’s forgotten underground and protect an ancient secret. Roman is asexual and proud of it, but yearns for romance with a man who will tolerate the lingering effects of his head injuries and not pressure him for sex. He ends up emotionally caught between two dominating men—the disgraced veteran who cares for him and a Philly cop with a love of bondage. Slowly Sean and Roman begin to connect, adding fuel to the fire of old rivalries and insecurities.

With a serial killer on the loose and targeting homeless veterans, Roman, Sean, and their friends struggle to meet across sexual divides. True love awaits—but so does a killer’s vengeance.

Review: After returning from Afghanistan with a bum leg, no job and images of friends burned into his memory Sean doesn’t know what he is going to do next and has no real interest in anything, until he gets drunk one night, falls down a manhole and wakes up to Roman. Roman is a wounded ex-soldier who is part of a secret group of former soldiers who live in the forgotten underground tunnels. Roman has no interest in sex, but he wants a relationship for the love and comfort, which is something nobody else really understands. Kristian is in charge of their little group and is very protective of Roman. Detective Michael Brackett is a friend to the homeless soldiers. A serial killer is on the loose and homeless veterans are being targeted, there are very few clues but Roman knows more than he thinks and when he begins to remember, all their lives are in danger.

This is a great story of homeless veterans who have basically been forgotten by their government, who all have their own nightmares and injuries and come together to support each other. Sean returns from the war with no clue as to what to do next, meeting Roman sets him on a course he would never have ventured on before and he meets men that has him exploring something that he never knew he wanted. Roman has a very faulty memory as a result of a war injury; he is asexual and has many good friends. Kristian is a protective man he will do anything to keep his friends safe and when he discovers that another homeless veteran, a man who he called a friend, has been murdered he tries to keep a closer eye on all of them. Brackett is a detective who was once close to Kristian, now they are at loggerheads, but when Roman asks for his help Brackett is introduced to Sean and he introduces Sean to rope-play.

This is a brilliant written story, dragging us into the underground of Philadelphia and the lives of a group of veterans who live there. The relationship aspects of the story are jumbled and confusing, not just to us but to the men involved as well. Finding friendship, sex, and love and mixing it all together to give us a complex storyline that isn’t quite resolved at the end of the story. The murder side is very interesting especially as bits and pieces of Roman’s memory flashes giving him hints that he knows more, and then we have the mystery water and its magical healing powers, a very interesting twist.

All the characters are good and we get perspectives mainly from Sean and Roman, although we do get brief perspectives of others. There is some casual sex in this story but not much on page, we do get some wonderful rope-play scenes and great descriptions about how Sean feels about it. But what I loved about this story is that it doesn’t pull punches about how the veterans are treated and ignored by the government they fought for. I loved the incredible descriptions of Roman’s memory when we see through his eyes. I loved the descriptions of the underground, being taken down into a world that has been long forgotten.

I recommend this to those that love veterans finding a way to survive, a murder mystery that’s interesting, damaged men who are just trying to find something better and finding friendship, and companionship and love.

Blurb:   Dante Rivers just lost the rodeo by two one hundredths of a point: he’s frustrated as hell, needs to get laid, and he knows just where to go. That night he meets Ryan Abbott and catches his eye—Ryan watched the rodeo and is still riding high on the rush. The chemistry between them ignites, but Dante, unable to deal with complications, leaves while Ryan’s asleep.

Ryan figures he’ll never see Dante again, but they’re fatefully reunited when Dante’s grandfather, Hy, hires Ryan to help straighten out some old investments. The attraction between Ryan and Dante still sizzles. Sex slowly turns to more, but obstacles abound: Hy’s failing health, Dante’s homophobic sponsor, an attack on Ryan, and Dante’s own struggle with his identity. Any one thing would be enough to separate them permanently… unless they both decide to hang on for the wild ride.

Reviewer:   Tams

Review:  This book really was A Wild Ride! Fast paced, well written, action packed and sexy as hell. Ryan is a no-nonsense, take charge guy in every aspect of his life. Dante has no choice but to be in control at all times. As a professional bull rider losing focus, loosing that control could cost him his life. It’s no surprise that the single most satisfying sexual experience either one of them have, is with each other.

After an emotionally charged encounter, Dante runs. What should have been a one night stand becomes so much more when Ryan walks back into his life. Sparks are definitely flying and the attraction is electric, but Dante is still refusing to admit just how badly he not only wants, but needs the domination Ryan can offer him. As the story progresses their relationship grows and both men have to learn the meaning of the words give and take.

I loved the way Grey kept the story focused on Ryan and Dante, but gave us some fantastic secondary characters as well to round out the story. Dante’s grandfather Hy sort of became the glue that held these two men together. Dante struggles with his identity as Ryan struggles with his past. The chemistry is undeniable, but they’ll face a lot of obstacles on their journey to be together. The illness of a loved one, homophobia and a gay bashing remind us of the day-to-day struggles that gay men have to deal with in order to maintain a relationship. But they also get to have some mind-blowing sex along the way!

If you like stubborn, sexy alpha males then this is a must read for you.

Blurb: As his birthday approaches, Matthew Westlake fears more than just growing a year older. He fears never seeing another year at all. Each birthday brings a close call with death, leaving holes in his memory, recurring nightmares, and one more glimpse of his guardian angel. This birthday Matt must stand against ancient evils that have hounded him since birth, because he is a Gifted One—a seventh son of a seventh son.

Within Matt rests the unlocked potential of a force for good, but it also makes him a target. Being the Gifted One and dodging demonic attacks aren’t Matt’s only problems, though. He’s fallen in love with his protector, the Archangel Gabriel, and Heaven will condemn that love to save Matt’s soul. But Heaven doesn’t count on Gabriel loving Matt in return, defying divine law and placing them in danger from demons and angels alike.

Review: Matthew has had many tragedies throughout his life, and each year his birthday brings danger. But, his guardian angel, Gabriel, is always there in the background keeping him safe. But, this year is different, as the forces of evil are determined to put an end to the Gifted One and Gabriel crosses a line never meant to be crossed. Matt and Gabriel jeopardize God’s Grand Design by falling in love, defying God’s laws and now a sacrifice must be made before it is too late.

This is a great good vs. evil, heavenly powers story. Matthew is the Gifted One and since the night of his birth has been hunted by evil.  Gabriel is the Archangel charged with keeping him safe, but Gabriel has grown to love the mortal under his protection and he breaks the rules when he shows himself to Matt. Matt is confused about his instant connection to the mysterious Gabriel. But, he tries to put it to the side to make a go of it with Craig, a man who has great potential in the boyfriend stakes. Evil still haunts Matt and monsters from his past are poised to strike and the contact with Gabriel pushes their feelings to the surface. But acting on their love could prove too dangerous with the powers of heaven disapproving.

I enjoyed most of this book, but I have to admit to disliking parts of it, especially when it came to Matt’s inability to basically stand up for himself against his friends and how understanding he had to be all the time, it wasn’t natural. The storyline was great and Gabriel and Matt were an interesting couple. I liked the way that the past was told in full for the pivotal moments and the way that evil twisted humans to do its bidding. The way the story flows is brilliant and it has emotional twists and turns, with some heavenly aspects and stories lending to the story. There’s lots of danger with rescues, some angst, arguing, forgiveness and love, there are some horrifying moments but also some moments of great sacrifice and devotion.

I will recommend this to those who love Angels and evil, some hot sex, Archangels giving it all up for love, danger, and a great ending.
