Review – Sky’s The Limit by Elle Aycart



5 out of 5 stars

 Well this was certainly not a book I ever pictured myself reading but was recommended, so I took a chance. Boy was I in for a roller coaster ride. There is comedy around every corner just for the very fact of the  town that Sky has been stranded in, doomsday preppers. Im talking bat-$hit crazy lunacy from some of these characters. You couldn’t help but laugh at the antics and the whole situation Sky has found herself in. 


Sky is a fashionista who believes she is on her way to Paris, France for a job teaching English  while she pursues her fashion career. Cue hilarity. Her sister booked this whole trip  for her,  and when Sky finds out she is indeed not going to Paris, France but Paris, Minnesota things get crazy fast. Her mini car breaks down in a snowstorm. She has no signal on her cell, and is definitely not dressed for these temperatures. Lucky for her Logan comes along and saves her, but now the fun begins. 


When some of the residents find out Logan brought who they are referring to as patient zero into their town, they lose their minds. They demand quarantine and it doesn’t help that Sky winds up with the flu. Her and Logan get stuck  together and eventually sparks start to fly and not just in the fireplace. Great story. I would definitely recommend it. 




 Tired of waiting for her big break in the fashion industry, Sky Gonzalez, eternal part-time student and overworked retail drone, quits her job, sublets her New York apartment, and embarks on a semester abroad study program in Paris. Paris! Time to throw caution to the winds and jump-start her dreams. What’s the worst that could happen? 


How about getting sent to the wrong Paris? As in Paris-frigging-Minnesota?

Bye-bye career dreams. Bye-bye glamour and haute couture. Hello flannel shirts, mind-numbing cold, zero bars on the cell phone, and socially challenged mountain men with tons of unruly facial hair.

So yeah, let the truck barreling her way hit her, please. Less painful.


Logan should have dodged the little lost waif and kept on driving. Who in their right mind walked in the middle of the road, dressed in white from head to high heels, during a snowstorm? Clueless city girls, that’s who. Sky is all that Logan has gladly left behind: stylish, cosmopolitan, and a massive pain in the butt. He wouldn’t trade a single day in his quirky little corner of the woods for all the high-maintenance beauties the city can offer.

Too bad this beauty has been deemed a health hazard and quarantined in his house. Damn his doomsday-prepper neighbors and their paranoid emergency protocols. Now  he has to keep Sky in and the pandemic squad out until the roads are clear. The question is, will that happen before or after Sky realizes she’s under house arrest?

Ah, the best-laid plans…



 

 Logan addressed the pandemic squad up on the platform. “Sorry to break it to you. This is a free country. You can’t go quarantining people at will.”

“Wrong. Exactly because this is a free country, we can.”
There were some mumbles of agreement from the crowd, “That’s right” and “You got it” and “Try to stop us.”
“We live in a democracy. Let’s take a vote,” Carol suggested. “All in favor of quarantining Patient Zero, please raise your hands.”
Everyone, including a smirking Ty, raised their hands.
“Oh, come on,” Logan grumbled. “Really? You serious?”
“Motion accepted,” Carol said, wrestling the gavel from the mayor and banging it on the podium. “Besides, Patient Zero doesn’t have to know she’s been quarantined. Just keep her indoors by any means necessary until she gets better.”
“Or she kicks the bucket,” somebody chimed in.
Nuts. The whole bunch of them. Down to the very last one.
“She’s not Patient Zero, people. Her name is Sky and she’s got the flu, damn it. Not Ebola. Just a common, garden-variety flu.”
“By our calculations, Patient Zero has been here almost twenty-four hours. We’re late on containment,” Carol said.
Logan shook his head in dismay. Man, like talking to a wall.
“You had her hidden away for a whole day?” Ty asked impishly.
“She was just sleeping on my sofa.” Logan realized his mistake right away and turned to Carol and the rest. “You are not burning my sofa. Are we clear?”
Whether it was clear or not, Logan didn’t know, because Carol ignored his words. “And we’ll be monitoring you,” she added while the rest nodded. “At the slightest indication you’re sick—”
“Yeah, yeah, you’ll quarantine me too, and if I don’t get better fast enough, you’ll shoot me and cremate my remains.” Along with the damn couch, of course.
Carol rolled her eyes. “Don’t be silly.”
“Yeah, don’t be silly,” someone interjected. “We’ll autopsy you before that. Dissect you into tiny pieces.”
Jesus fucking Christ. Why couldn’t his neighbors have been the gearheads prepping for solar flares that would fry the grid? More kumbaya. Less ready to dissect.
“This is all your fault, Megan,” he said to his sister, who was sitting two rows behind him. “Couldn’t you have moved somewhere else? A normal fucking place?”
She just laughed. “You heard the lady. Keep Patient Zero indoors—by any means necessary.”
“Ha. Ha.”
“What? Skills too rusty to keep a woman indoors?” she asked.
“I can help,” Ty added. “Is she pretty?”
Gorgeous, actually. Big, dark eyes. Olive-colored skin. Delicate features. But that was beside the point too.
“Fuck off, both of you,” Logan muttered. Raising his voice, he addressed the crowd again. “You’re certifiable. All of you.”
“I totally agree,” Carol said. “We give you far too much leeway. Look at how flexible we’ve been about your toxic contaminants.”

Review – True by Ella Frank 

 I am tearing up saying goodbye to two beautiful souls that Ella has blessed us with. This series is so beautiful and is one that will remain in my heart for all of eternity. We have watched these two go through so many ups and downs which made them so real to us. This final book has made my heart bursting at the seams with happiness and a feeling of fulfillment. Ella could not have done a better job at bringing this series to a close. 
It is a series that we will continue to read or listen to over and over again because it is a feel good journey of love, discovery, and happiness.   Ella I want to thank you for blessing us with your talent and giving us this gift to escape from the horrors of the real world to a place full of unconditional love. Tate and Logan will live in my heart for eternity. ❤❤❤

 

 TRUE, the final book in The Temptation Series by Ella Frank and the highly anticipated wedding between Logan Mitchell and Tate Morrison is available now!

Synopsis:

True – adjective: That which is accurate or exact.

I dare you to try.

I think you’re my truth.

Terrify me.

Marry me.

Marry me.

Marry me…

Four years ago, Logan Mitchell walked into Tate’s life and challenged him to see it differently.

He dared Tate to try a kiss, when normally he wouldn’t have.

He begged him to take a chance, when he probably shouldn’t have.

But most importantly, he asked Tate to trust that he would love him, and he did. From that moment on, Tate realized exactly what his life had been missing—Logan.

Happily-ever-afters come in many different forms. But for Tate Morrison, there’s only one ending he wants. The one where the guy marries the guy and true love conquers all.

Now all he has to do is tell Logan.

Join Logan and Tate as they finally realize what the rest of us knew all along. That they belong together for better or worse—always.

 LOVE. IT’S FUNNY how one four-letter word can bring on such an onslaught of emotions. Happiness, desire, anger, even fear, Tate Morrison thought, as he sat at the tiny table in the empty bar of the Lynley Winery and tried to calm his erratic heartbeat. It could make those who were the most honest with their emotions run scared, while at the same time bring forth a determination in the most unlikely of people.

That was something he had discovered ten minutes ago back in their suite when Logan had stood before him naked and uttered, “Just tell me how you want me, Tate. I’m yours.”

That was when he’d run.

Tate had practically tripped over his feet in his hurry to be free of the suddenly suffocating confines of that bathroom. And now, as he sat alone replaying Logan’s words, he stared down at the crumpled paper he’d grabbed from his wallet and studied the words in his shaking hands.

His stomach knotted, then flipped over on itself time and time again, and Tate willed himself to breathe. The last thing he needed was to pass out from a panic attack, but that was exactly what was happening. He was panicking. And the reason? The reason was as clear as day. He was the dumbest motherfucker on the planet. Yeah, he was.

Fucking hell. He’d heard that love made people do some stupid shit before, but this… God, what if I can’t fix this? What if Logan doesn’t want me like that anymore? The thought made him want to be sick. He squeezed his eyes shut, trying to stop the room from spinning, but all that did was bring to mind Logan back in the bathroom, beautiful as always, looking at Tate for some kind of indication of what was running through his head. And what had Tate given him? Nothing. He’d just fled.

Damn it.

Tate shoved the piece of paper into his pocket, along with the pen he’d grabbed from the side table back in their suite, no longer able to look at it. What had he done to them? How had he let fear of the unknown possibly ruin this? And as the memories flooded him again…

I dare you to try.

I think you’re my truth.

Terrify me.

Marry me.

…he was more than aware that it was that one, the last one, that didn’t have the right ending. He’d really messed this up, but he could make it right and wanted to, more than he wanted his next breath.

He placed his head in his hands and shut his eyes, trying to gather some semblance of control so he could go back, find Logan, and do the one thing he realized he should’ve done all along. It wasn’t until he heard the sound of padded feet on the hardwood floor that he looked up to see that he didn’t need to go and find Logan, because he had tracked Tate down instead.

With the fire flickering behind him, the sharp angles of Logan’s cheeks and jaw only enhanced a face Tate loved more than he thought possible, and when Logan pulled out the chair opposite him and reached across the table to take his hands, Tate couldn’t believe it had taken his brain this long to catch up and get to where it now firmly was.

“Hey,” Logan said, his eyes roaming over Tate’s face, no doubt for signs, clues as to why he’d run away.

“Hey,” Tate replied, and then lowered his gaze to their hands, marveling over the strength he found there when they were joined.

Exactly…together, not apart. Always and forever, together.

“What are you doing out here?” Logan asked, and Tate swallowed as he felt Logan tighten his grip.

“I, uhh…”

“Tate?” Logan said before Tate could give any kind of response. “What are you doing out here?”

Tate withdrew his hand and ran it through his hair, and as Logan continued to watch him, he felt his nerves kick in. “Back there in the bathroom…” he started, and then stopped. As he thought over his words, Tate wondered if there was even a way to explain how badly he’d screwed this all up, but knew the only way he’d ever know was to try. “I had a thought. It was more of a moment, I guess. A flash of us. Of all we are and will be and— Shit, I sound crazy, don’t I?”

Logan’s eyes narrowed, but he shook his head. “You don’t sound crazy. But you are freaking me out a little. Were the things you were thinking good things, at least?”

Tate frowned and then shot Logan an apologetic look. The last thing Tate wanted was to worry him more—it was the exact opposite. “Yeah, of course. I should’ve probably started with that. Everything about you was good. Perfect, really, but me…”

“What about you? You’re pretty fucking perfect from where I’m sitting. And back there in that bathroom, trust me, you looked better than any of those naked statues on the wall.”

Tate tried for a smile but knew he didn’t quite pull it off when Logan asked, “What is it, Tate? Come on; you know you can tell me anything.”

Okay, this is it, Tate thought, as he swallowed and then shifted in his seat, glancing over at the fire for a moment to gather his nerve. Then he turned back to Logan and asked, “Am I too late?”

At Logan’s confused expression, Tate knew he didn’t understand what he was asking. So he reached into his pocket where he’d shoved the piece of paper, and then put it on the table. He smoothed his hand over it, lovingly tracing his fingers over the name he now wanted as his own, and then pushed it over in front of Logan.

As Logan stared down at it, Tate watched him read over the words on the paper, waiting for a reaction, and when Logan looked up, Tate asked again, “Am I too late?”

Logan blinked several times, and Tate held his breath, wondering if he was too late. But then something miraculous happened: Logan shook his head.

The blood rushing around Tate’s head made his ears ring as he tried to comprehend what Logan was telling him, but he still hadn’t said a word, so Tate pulled the pen from his pocket and leaned over to circle the name he hadn’t been able to stop looking at ever since he’d found the piece of paper.

As Logan looked down again, Tate saw a huge grin split his lips. “So what do you think? Can the world handle two Mr. Mitchells?”

Review – Miss Mechanic by Emma Hart

Miss Mechanic by Emma Hart

Miss Mechanic by Emma Hart is easily in my TOP 3 fave books Emma has ever written! I absolutely LOVED IT! Dex has my heart right now! He was pure male perfection! Gah!

Emma writes the best rom-coms. And just lately she’s included the gender-flip that is just sheer brilliance. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’ve come to love this trope and Emma nails it every time. Miss Mechanic was so funny, so sassy and so sexy. I’m 100% addicted to it and now experiencing the BIGGEST rush! 

Dex and Jamie are EXPLOSIVE. A raging inferno of tension and fire and insane connection. From the start these two burn hotter than a burning flame and it only increases as the book goes on. I got major tingles and butterflies from some of their encounters! I just loved them so much.

Dex is an a**hole but he’s a totally loveable a**hole. He’s filthy and sexy. You can’t help but fall for him just as much as you want to slap him. As always Emma’s heroine, Jamie, is incredible. She’s one of my fave heroines Emma has written! 

Everything about Miss Mechanic worked so well. The trope, the gender flip, the intensity and heat and the humour all complimented each other and equalled one hell of a story!

Two mechanics. One rivalry.

She’ll prove she’s as good as she says she is.
He’ll prove her place isn’t under the hood.
It’s over it.

“Don’t let the bastards get you down.”
For twenty-six years, I lived by my daddy’s motto. Which is why “Mechanic Wanted” is all it takes for me to apply for the job at the garage we once owned.
And I meet the biggest bastard of them all.
Dexter Ryne. Hotter than Hell in July and a firm believer that my place is on reception, taking phone calls and looking pretty. Not getting dirty under the hood of a car.
Determined to prove each other wrong, we make a deal.
I have three weeks to prove my worth as a mechanic. If I don’t, I’m on telephone duty.
If I do, he’ll accept defeat and make my job permanent.
Now, all I have to do is fight my attraction to the cocky little… beep.
Problem is, an engine isn’t the only thing he knows how to make purr…

MISS MECHANIC, a standalone romantic comedy from New York Times bestseller, Emma Hart.

Review – Last Call by Felice Stevens and Christina Lee 


 5 out of 5 stars

 I can’t even tell you how excited I was when I saw this book being released. Christina and Felice are two of my absolute favorite authors. Them coming together to give us not 2 but 3 men, I was ecstatic. I knew I was in for a sweet and sexy journey. They absolutely nailed it. You won’t want to part with your kindle until you read the last word, and even then you’ll crave more. These 3 were sinfully delicious but also vulnerable which made you love them even more. I hope these two get together to collaborate again in the future. 
All 3 men had grown up in less than ideal circumstances. It helps you relate to their characters more when you read the hardships they faced growing up. Emery, who lost his mother as a teenager, lived his life on the road with the circus. When the circus shut down a few years ago, he drifting from town to town in search of work and slept in his car. He gets more than he bargained for when he steps into Last Call hustling money with his a wrestling. He winds up with no way to escape and nowhere to go. 
Quinn and Gray have been best friends since they were kids. They both are hiding feelings for each other that they both refuse to confess for  fear of ruining their friendship if the other doesn’t feel the same. Quinn is the kind caring soul while Gray is the more silent and brooding type. Quinn can’t help but offer to help Emery while Gray is resistant and untrusting. When Quinn can no longer hide his attraction to Emery, Gray can’t bear to watch.
 Emery brings them all together, but will the existing feelings between Quinn and Gray overpower the relationship between the 3 of them, or will they make it work? Get ready for a journey of finding love, acceptance, and exploration. It will truly warm you heart and ignite flames of passion. 



 LAST CALL

M/M/M ROMANCE

CHRISTINA LEE & FELICE STEVENS

RELEASE DATE: 11.29.17

COVER DESIGN: Reese Dante

BLURB

Quinn Monahan and Grayson Page have been friends since high school. Despite their differences, they’ve been there for each other through thick and thin. Opening Last Call together, a bar tucked away in the small town of Heartsville, PA seemed a natural progression—even if it makes it harder to live with the secret longing they’ve always had for each other.

Hoping to score an easy buck and a place to sleep, unemployed circus roadie Emery Woods chooses Last Call to run a few bets and enjoy a decent beer before moving on. When he finds himself stranded, the unexpected kindness Quinn and Gray show him leads to temporary work and a couch to lay his head. Sensing unresolved history between Quinn and Gray, he squashes his immediate draw to the men, opting to avoid trouble. But as days turn into weeks, denying the attraction is easier said than done.

When the men finally give in to the simmering sexual tension, it quickly develops into more than a way to pass the lonely nights. And as they begin to lean on each other for emotional support, it becomes nearly impossible to think of one man without the other two. But while Quinn and Gray are afraid to cross the line of friendship between them, Emery fears once they do, he’ll quickly be cast aside. A real family is finally within their grasp, but unless the men can learn to trust each other, they just might miss their hearts’ last call home.

EXCERPT

Holy fucking hell. That had been one of the best orgasms of my life.

As the fog in my brain began to clear, Quinn stood up and hesitantly swiped at his mouth as if unsure of himself all over again. The fact that he’d just sucked me off didn’t seem lost on him. But Christ, it had been incredible, like a damned gift.

Something sharp pierced inside my chest, and I did the only thing that came to mind. I gripped his face and fused our mouths together. He whimpered, his fingers clutching at my waist and he sank against me as if in relief.

My tongue flicked out to brush briefly against his before pushing past his lips and finally—finally—tasting all of him. I sucked on his tongue and lips, jaw and throat, as his hands skimmed over my back, his nails digging into my hips, leaving scarcely a sliver of space between us.

“Gray,” he moaned against my lips as I entwined our fingers and pulled them behind his back. Our chests slicked together, our groins pressing, our mouths meeting in deep and bruising kisses. The room faded away, the sound blotted, and all I could focus on was devouring my best friend’s mouth.


Mother, wife, reader, dreamer. Christina lives in the Midwest with her husband and son–her two favorite guys. She’s addicted to lip balm, coffee, and kissing. Because everything is better with kissing. 

She writes MM Contemporary as well as Adult and New Adult Romance. She believes in happily-ever-afters for all, so reading and writing romance for everybody under the rainbow helps quench her soul.

Felice Stevens has always been a romantic at heart. While life is tough, she believes there is a happy ending for everyone. She started reading traditional historical romances as a teenager, then life and law school got in the way. It wasn’t until she picked up a copy of Bertrice Small and became swept away to Queen Elizabeth’s court that her interest in romance novels was renewed.

But somewhere along the way, her reading shifted to stories of men falling in love. Once she picked up her first gay romance, she became so enamored of the character-driven stories and the overwhelming emotion there was no turning back.

Felice lives in New York City with her husband and two children. Her day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. Although she practices law, she daydreams of a time when she can sit by a beach and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there is bound to be some angst along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.

Review – The Plan by Ella James

The Plan cover

Review graphic

Ella James has once again stepped up to the plate and given us a truly amazing book in The Plan. I loved everything about this Southern second chance love story. Marley and Gabe’s second chance was much more than I expected. This story was more than two angry exes that find themselves having to share a home when they didn’t expect to. This story is about two people who were hurt by not only their shared past and a young disastrous marriage but by the pain of similar losses and the feeling of not knowing how to move forward. Time and distance can either help or hurt and in the instance of Marley and Gabe, time and distance only seemed to leave behind pain, misunderstandings and unanswered questions.

That doesn’t remotely touch what has happened since the two have divorced. They each have successful careers but are failures at love and long term relationships. There has been a heartbreaking loss for Marley and a shocking discovery for Gabriel that shakes the very foundation of his life. Each make their way home to Fate, Alabama, as a last resort. One comes to hide, the other to rebuild. It couldn’t be more fitting that fate leads these two back to their humble beginnings. Whether they are ready or not, they will have to face their fears, combat their anger and finally find a way to forgive each other.

This story is full of heartbreaking angst, moments that are so funny and so truly Southern that I laughed so hard my stomach hurt and an attraction that is still razor sharp in spite of a divorce and years of leading separate lives. Gabe is gruff and determined to keep Marley at arm’s length. He has many demons to face and a public that is clamoring to have his sordid story as a means to keep his wounds fresh and his heart bleeding. Now that he has returned to Fate he has to contend with small town speculation and over eager neighbors. Marley has her own insecurities that twine around her untouchable mother and a biological clock that just won’t stop ticking. But if her plan works, she’ll have everything that she has ever wanted and maybe, just maybe, her ex husband too.

Ella’s words always make me feel like I am sitting right with her characters. Her words evoke so many emotions. I ran the gamut getting to know Gabe and Marley, their wants and wishes, the ugly hurts that cannot be avoided. The entire Off-Limits series has stories and characters so layered, complex and absolutely endearing. The Plan is no exception. I fell for and felt for these two. Second chances are hard to come by and when Fate steps in, we sometimes have to step back and let love take its course. Rocky, tedious and thrilling though it may be. It helps, too, to have some great pie and pork chops for good eats on the journey.

This was amazing! It was worth the wait, the delays and the angst that the awesome author experienced during the writing of Gabe and Marley’s love story. Great job, Ella. Truly fantastic!

The Plan teaser 3

 

synopsis.jpg

You’ve heard this story before. Woman feels her biological clock ticking and gets someone to knock her up.
Not for love, for baby.
Crazy, right?
That’s what I thought.
Then I found out my fiancé had a vasectomy. The life I thought I had? Nope. Suddenly I’m 33, and I don’t even have a kissing buddy.
When my mom’s health takes a turn and I wind up back in my hometown of Fate, Alabama, I tell myself to leave things up to…well, you know.
Then I see Gabriel McKellan. He’s Fate’s most famous son, a bestselling author who is beautiful, complicated, and living just below me. In addition to his plus-sized brain, Gabe’s well-endowed in other ways, and great in bed to boot. I would know. He’s my ex husband.
When I suggest The Plan, I don’t imagine that he’ll take the bait. It’s been ten years, and we don’t work. But Fate has other plans for both of us.

The Plan teaser 2

FB_IMG_1494244623114

I veer into the bushes, heading across the lawn toward the home’s rear right, where there’s supposed to be a staircase tacked onto the house’s back side.

“Not your walkway,” he says coolly.

“Figured that out,” I snap over my shoulder.

Hurt stings my cheeks and neck, prickles tears in my eyes. I whirl. “You are such an asshole! Always were. The biggest jerk in our class!”

“What was it, then, Marley?” He takes a long stride down the walkway toward me. “Oh, wait, I remember.” He looks pointedly down, and then back up at me with those electric eyes—and I know what he’s meaning.

“Jesus—you’re a pig!”

He smirks. “Only for you.”

“Fuck off.”

With those ungraceful words, I march toward the house I’m sharing with my ex-husband.

Review – Embrace The Fire by Felice Stevens 



5 out of 5 stars

 It’s no secret that I have so much love for this series. Book one was in my top reads of last year list. This series was so full of love and family. It also shows that family isnt only those related by blood. It goes way deeper. Seeing these 3 men who were adopted and all lost each other throughout the years come together and show that there is such a strength that can come from love, is one of the most incredible things. In a world filled with so much hate and evil,  Felicie has shown us what ready unconditional love truly is and makes you desire more of it in your life. 
The narration for the audio version is powerful and shows depth of emotions covered in this beautifully told story. The voice was soothing and easy to listen to. I love when I hit narrator gold!  He truly brought beauty to another Felice Stevens masterpiece.

 Brandon Gilbert has spent years in hiding, but he’s finally accomplished his dream of working as a public school teacher. When offered the chance to help bullied children, there was no way he could say no. Not to mention that meeting Dr. Tash Weber, the psychiatrist who helps them, a sad yet sexy older man, ignited a spark inside Brandon he’d never had before.

Though five years have passed since the death of his lover, Dr. Sebastian “Tash” Weber has no interest in relationships or love. But young, enigmatic Brandon awakens his heart and his desire. Despite Tash’s best efforts to push him away, Brandon unlocks the passion for life Tash thought he’d lost forever.

Falling in love wasn’t part of the plan for either Brandon or Tash, but neither family disapproval nor self-doubts can stop them from embracing the fire that burns between them. And when Brandon returns home to fight for a future he never imagined possible, he and Tash discover that the one thing worth fighting for has been with them all along.

 “Care to tell me what’s wrong?” Brandon zipped up his jacket.

“You don’t know? All weekend I’ve been deluding myself. We were caught up in this bubble we created, but now? Now that I have to come face-to-face with your brothers and Gage.” Tash shook his head. “I don’t know if I can do this.”

Heart beating madly, Brandon swallowed. “Can’t do what?” Don’t do this, please; don’t hide yourself away.

“Us. You, me. We’re at different places in our lives. You’re starting out, and with Ash and Luke, you have a whole new world open to you—places to explore and new people to meet.”

Tash unbuckled his seat belt and opened the car door but didn’t get out. “I’m the opposite. I’m ready to settle down. I’m not interested in nightlife and the latest scene. I can’t and won’t ask you to give it all up.” Tash climbed out of the car and slammed the door.

The hell he says. If Tash thought he’d simply state his opinions like God and proclaim what Brandon should do with the rest of his life, he was in for a fight. He wrenched open the door. “I’m not giving anything up. I was never into that.” Brandon slammed the car door behind him with a vicious thump. “Who do you think you are? You say you don’t want to be with me, yet you then get the right to lay out my life in neat little puzzle pieces so it all comes perfectly together as you see fit.”

Tash had stopped in his tracks but didn’t turn around. Hopeful that was a sign he was at least listening, Brandon continued.

“Sure we were in a bubble; it was wonderful this weekend, beautiful and amazing.” He advanced on Tash and stood before him. “Don’t think I don’t know, maybe better than anyone, how something so perfect and magical can be ripped away with no warning.” He put a hand on Tash’s shoulder, hoping Tash wouldn’t move away from him. “And now the hard stuff begins—reality and all the trouble that comes with it. But aren’t you willing to try? See where this journey takes us?”

“Brandon, you’re—”

“Don’t say it. I’ll tell you what I am. I’ve been homeless and hungry. I’ve lived on the streets with rats, not knowing where I would sleep at night. Do you think I’m looking for a man whose only interest is a twenty-dollar glass of wine and where the next party is?”

Tash said nothing, and Brandon had no more strength to argue. Besides, they were at the clinic to do a job. Last time he’d screwed up by running out, and he’d be damned if he’d do it again.

 Felice Stevens has always been a romantic at heart. While life is tough, she believes there is a happy ending for everyone. She started reading traditional historical romances as a teenager, then life and law school got in the way. It wasn’t until she picked up a copy of Bertrice Small and became swept away to Queen Elizabeth’s court that her interest in romance novels was renewed.


But somewhere along the way, her reading shifted to stories of men falling in love. Once she picked up her first gay romance, she became so enamored of the character-driven stories and the overwhelming emotion there was no turning back.

Felice lives in New York City with her husband and two children. Her day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. Although she practices law, she daydreams of a time when she can sit by a beach and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there is bound to be some angst along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.

Review – Turning Up The Heat by Erika Wilde

Turning Up The Heat cover

Review graphic

What happens when you become obessessed with the voice behind your favorite late night talk show? If you’re Ian Carlisle, you spend your nights engaging her in witty sexy banter and becoming so a part of her life and her show that you have to meet and hope that the on air chemistry is just as sizzling off air.

And boy, oh boy! Does is it burn white hot!

This was another delicious read from Erika Wilde! Kerri McCree has come to Chicago to make a name for herself as a talk show DJ. Her topic is all hot and steamy sex. But after a bad relationship, Kerri knows very little about the subject. That doesn’t stop her from faking it and keeping her audience coming back for more. Enter the very delicious and every enthralled Ian Carlisle. Over the past few weeks, he’s been an avid listener and a frequent caller to Kerri’s show. The two have a connection and everyone who listens can hear it. Ian can feel it. After a tragic loss, he finally realizes what he wants most is a real relationship with the person behind the sultry, sensual voice.

These two have some a deep connection, a true fondness for each other. But Kerri has a weary spirit and a cautious heart. She has walls and will do whatever it takes to hold on to her independence. Ian is certain that everything he has ever wanted lies with Kerri and he’s willing to fight for what they could have. He wants her to give him her everything – her heart and soul. He engages her mind, warms her body and makes her feel wanted – something that she has been missing in her life. Though she wants and tries to keep the relationship on a physical level, it doesn’t take long for Ian to pierce Kerri’s heart and make her re-evaluate her stance on love and marriage.

This story is filled with sexy, fun moments, heartfelt angst and a past filled with pain and sadness. Kerri and Ian are two passionate people who meet by chance but build something amazing by choice. Great secondary characters make this story a sweet romance and I turned those pages until the wonderful end. Just an absolutely wonderful read!

A sexy stand-alone, full-length novel!

Radio personality Kerri McCree really likes sex. Talking about sex, that is . . .

Kerri knows firsthand that you can hide a lot behind a microphone. Although she’s earned a reputation for discussing every aspect of sex on her show, she’s never had to back it up . . . until a sexy mystery caller proves to be even more irresistible in person.

Ian Carlisle is immediately intrigued by the sultry voice he hears on the late night radio show, and it doesn’t take him long to arouse Kerri’s imagination with his dirty talk. Now he’s turning up the heat and seducing the rest of her. Their on-the-air chemistry sizzles and they heat up the airwaves, debating any and all provocative issues possible. As the ratings soar, so does the sexual tension.

But will Ian do when he discovers Kerri’s not the sex expert she professes to be?

Review – One Call Away by Emily Goodwin

One Call Away cover

Review graphic

I started and ended this book the same way…. in the ugliest of tears and sobbing. The first time in agony from pain and unthinkable loss. A life full of amazing potential taken way too soon. The last in elation from seeing a leading lady embrace her life and love so fully, so completely that it made my heart shutter in my chest. This story was worth the couple of nights of missed sleep, running down my phone to read those last few paragraphs. Sierra and Chase were simply stunning from beginning to end.

Sierra is not like the rest of her family. The rich farm Belmont family of the small town of Summer Hill in Mississippi. She knows that she cannot be a farmer’s wife but was prepared to be a doctor’s wife. She loved Jake. He was her world, until he is taken away. Lost in grief for a year and a half, Sierra is barely surviving. Her job at the local bookstore is her haven, a place where she can get lost. But no matter what, she can’t feel.

Chase Henson has always been looking for a place to belong, a place to call his own. His return to Mississippi is welcomed by his brother but looked upon with suspicion by the rest of the town’s people and bitter anger by his stepmother. After burying their father, Chase decides to stay and give his brother a hand at his bar. It was supposed to be temporary but then he sees Sierra Belmont and everything changes. For the first time he sees someone like him – unsettled, lost, and hurting. Someone looking for home.

Their journey towards a happy life together is far from easy. There is unbearable grief, secrets from the past, and small town gossip. Interfering relatives and well meaning friends. On the flip side of that coin, there’s a white hot chemistry that cannot be denied, a friendship built on the love of books and a second chance to live and love – not just simply survive. Yes, to feel again. It was impossible not to get swept up into these two. They began with such an uncertainty and moved on to something so unique. Chase is fierce and determined to see Sierra happy. Sierra knows that her happiness is finally within reach thanks to Chase.

This book was raw, pure emotion. It was angst and hearbreak, healing and resilience. I was left stunned and overjoyed. The story is so engaging and thought provoking that it was hard to step away once I started. I wanted to see how Chase would break through Sierra’s insecurities and wondered how his mysterious past would affect his future. I rooted for Sierra as she began to put her grief aside and embrace all that love had to offer. I laughed with them. I cried with them. I celebrated right along with them. This was just wonderful!

One Call Away is one of the best reads this year! Emily has written such a beautiful, thoughtful second chance romance. I already miss Summer Hill, and I certainly hope that she plans more stories from small town Mississippi. Wonderful job, Emily. All the stars and then some!

One Call Away teaser 2

Chase Henson doesn’t play by the rules. He doesn’t let himself get attached, doesn’t stay in one place long enough to call anywhere home. So when he returns to the small town of Summer Hill for the first time in years, the last thing he expects to find is a reason to stay.

Sierra Belmont is lost. Devastated after a sudden tragedy that left her heart broken in a million pieces, Sierra is just barely getting by. Burying herself in work at Summer Hill’s only bookstore, all she wants to do is make it through another day.

And then Chase walks through the doors of The Book Bag, claiming he’s just there to buy a book. Rumors that he’s dangerous fly through the town, but Sierra isn’t afraid of him. He might be the last person she should be with, but he’s the only one who understands the depth of her pain. For the first time, Chase stands still, fighting the desperation to mend Sierra’s broken heart.

Always running, the past has never had a chance to catch up to Chase. But there’s a first time for everything.

REVIEW ~ LOVE PROFOUND By KELLY ELLIOTT 


There are books that you start reading and you just know will consume you, steal your breath, make your heart pound, cry big fat ugly tears, soothe your heart then make you cry all over again with sheer happiness. Well Ms Elliott you have done each and every one of those things to me with this book, I’m not sure what to do with myself. 
The second instalment in the Cowboys and angels series and lord have mercy do they just keep getting better, The Parker family have stole a forever piece of my heart, I could honestly read about them all day. Amelia may be the baby of the family but that girl has sass and determination along with the finest. Wade is a character that right from the start you just need to Love. The story flows with effortless perfection, consuming you and everything around you stands still, nothing else matters, you don’t even realise your sat holding your breath at times or how deep you have fallen into the story until the tears start to roll down you face. 
A 5 star and keep on going stars. 

 

I write about love, but I’ve never experienced it. Sure, I’ve been with guys that I cared about. Even thought I found ‘the one’. He turned out to be the frog and not the prince.

 

A few Frank Sinatra songs and a wildly handsome cowboy who calls me Darlin’, will have me second guessing everything I ever thought I knew about love.

 

Does happily ever after really exist…or is it only something I write about in books?

 

Love Profound is book two in the Cowboys and Angels series.

Review  – Tate by Ella Frank 



6 stars

HOLY HELL!!!  This book gave me all the feels.  At one point, my heart stopped beating  and cracker in half.  This is probably the most emotional book in this series.  As always,  Ella delivers nothing but pure perfection. I can’t really say much more than to tell you that you need to set aside a day dedicated to this book because you won’t be putting it down once you start. Writing anymore than this could give away the story and I absolutely refuse to take all that emotions from other readers.  Just know that you will be completely consumed by Tate and Logan all over again. 


“The Temptation Series by Ella Frank was proof that if we open our minds and our hearts to love without boundaries, the result is nothing less than extraordinary.”

— Audrey Carlan, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

William Tate Morrison – The man who came into my life and turned my entire world—and me—on its ass.

Now with words like marriage and weddings floating around his head, Logan’s plans have suddenly changed course, and where they want him to go has him feeling somewhat distracted.

Tate Morrison knows Logan better than anybody else—or so he thinks. So when his lawyer is finding it hard to sleep at night, he chalks it up to the craziness that has recently descended on their lives.
