Crystal's review

I am so happy that The Players Club is back! This series is so sexy and so much fun. These sexy alphas are just so yummy. It’s so hard to put these books down!

Brent “Mac” MacMillian is tall, dark and oh, is he handsome! He’s also insanely rich and the proud new owner of The Players Club. He has plans for the magnificent mansion of sensual delights and he wants his partner Dean’s wife, Jillian, to help him to redecorate the and update the club. The one thing he doesn’t want is for Jillian’s boss Stephanie Randell to take on the job. He can’t deny the chemistry between them and he’s been burned before by a woman who couldn’t handle is particular brand of dominance.

Stephanie has other plans for Mac, of course and what she wants, she gets. This man has been denying what they feel for each other for months and this project will finally put them together. She wants Mac’s time and attention. She wants his body. She doesn’t have to have his heart. Or does she?

Things between these two are so steaming hot, so emotional and tangled. Mac and Stephanie certainly get more than what they bargained for. Misunderstandings and miscommunications arise. The past is always lurking. What a great story that these two have! Mac is so very sexy and Stephanie is so feisty and spicy, aware of who she is in her own skin. I loved my time at The Players Club and cannot wait for another story from this series!

HE’S READY TO PLAY . . . ARE YOU? 

As the new owner of The Players Club, Brent “Mac” MacMillan is all about dirty sex, wicked sin and carnal pleasure . . . served up his way. After being burned in the past, he’s always been careful to choose experienced females who enjoy submitting to his dark desires, and are willing to play by his demanding rules without expecting any emotional attachments in return.

Hiring beautiful interior designer Stephanie Randall to create fantasy bedrooms within his club is his first mistake. She’s curious, flirtatious, and makes his blood run hotter than it ever has before. Innocent when it comes to all the debauchery his sinful world has to offer, she wants to take a walk on the wild side . . . with him.

His second mistake? Saying yes. And his third? Falling for the one woman he knows he can never have.

Stephanie strolled toward Mac, a mischievous glimmer suddenly brightening her gorgeous blue eyes, putting him on alert.  “I’d like to attend the Masquerade party at The Players Club on Saturday, to get a better feel for the club and what other fantasy elements might work for your members.”

     He stiffened at her unexpected request.  The temptation of having her in this domain—wanting her but refusing to touch her—wasn’t something he wanted to endure.  And watching her possibly hook up with someone else, like Rick? Complete fucking agony.

     He shook his head.  “I don’t think attending the Masquerade party is necessary.  I’m sure you can come up with a few other ideas without being here when everything is in full swing, which is probably going to be more distracting, than helpful.”

     “What if I want to be here?” the little vixen proposed, her voice holding a hint of a challenge.  “You know, to mix a little business with pleasure?”

     His expression remained composed, his resolve, firm.  “I’m going to have to say no.”

     She tipped her head to the side, studying him much too astutely.  “I can always get an invitation from Jillian, you know,” she said as she came closer and closer.

     “No, you can’t,” he countered.  “I put a freeze on any new invitations until I’m done going through the current membership.”

     She laughed softly, huskily, the sound like a stroke along his cock.  Much like her hand was suddenly stroking down the length of his tie before giving it a playful tug.  “Do I make you nervous, Mac?”

     His hands curled into fists in his pockets, because it was taking extreme effort not to grasp her face in his palms and kiss that soft, plush, impudent mouth of hers—hot and hard and deep.  “Do I look like a man who’d be intimidated by any woman?” he asked, his voice surprisingly steady.

     She thought about that for a brief moment before giving her hair a subtle toss and replying.  “Intimidated, no.” Then a sexy, knowing smile curved her lips. “Nervous, definitely, because if you weren’t a little uneasy about whatever this thing is between us, you wouldn’t have an issue with me coming to the Masquerade party and being at the club.”

     “The last thing you make me feel is uneasy.”  Instead, her presence had lust pumping through him like a heady surge of adrenaline.  She was certainly testing his control.

     Her free hand came back up and splayed on his chest, the heat of her touch searing him through his dress shirt.  “If I don’t make you nervous, then prove it,” she cajoled. “Let me come to the party on Saturday. I promise not to be too shocked by what I see.”

     His jaw clenched as she met his gaze and held it, so bold and brazen when she really had no idea what she was messing with, or what he was capable of.  This woman was no shrinking violet, and she was the furthest thing from the kind of submissive, obedient female he preferred—and Jesus, Christ, his dick was hard as stone for her.  This was a woman who liked having the advantage, who enjoyed a little power play, and fuck if that didn’t make him want to pin her against the wall behind her and make it very clear who really had the upper hand between them.

     “So, what will it be, Mr. MacMillan?” she murmured huskily.  “Inviting me to the club on Saturday, or are you going to chicken out?”

Review – Robbie by Ella Frank

5 out of 5 stars
Another top read from Ella Frank. I was completely captivated from the very beginning. This book is steamy, angsty, and mind blowing; everything you expect from Ella.
Robbie has a serious crush on Julien but Julien is married to a Priest, a man he can’t stand. They both make a proposition that leaves Robbie utterly confused. It definitely isn’t an offer he can’t turn down.
The dynamics between these 3 will have you on the edge of your seat and turning pages at top speed. This is one book you don’t want miss.

Confessions: Robbie, an all new tantalizing contemporary MMM Romance by Ella Frank is available NOW!

Relationships are complex.

Love ever-changing.

And when it comes to rules of the heart,

they were made to be broken…

That’s what Robert Antonio Bianchi was telling himself, anyway.

Otherwise, he really had no excuse for what—or who—he’d done.

No excuse, except for his lonely heart, a pitcher of margaritas, four Bitter Bitches, and the apparent need to confess all his weaknesses to the two men he knew would bring him nothing but trouble.

But trouble was nothing new.

Just ask his crazy sisters or any of his friends, and they’d be the first to tell you:

If there was a bad decision to be made, Robbie always had a knack for making it.

And thus begins the story of the priest, the princess, and the prick.

CHAPTER ONE

CONFESSION

If there’s a bad decision to make, I will make it.

DRUNK-DIALING IS never a smart move. But drunk-dialing a married man? That is a monumentally stupid move.

That was the thought rolling around Robbie’s muddled brain as he stood with his best friend Elliot at the bar of CRUSH and tossed back his fourth Bitter Bitch. The conversation he was having with himself wasn’t a new one—or a welcome one, he thought as he swayed on his feet and kind of stumbled into the stool beside him. But forgetting his lonely life with alcohol and men who were all wrong for him seemed like an increasingly good way to cope tonight.

The hum and throb of the bass beat was rattling through him, but instead of feeling the pull he usually did to head out to the dance floor and have fun, tonight it seemed to be having the opposite effect. It was making him think really stupid thoughts.

“You’re so wasted, Bianchi,” Elliot said as he grabbed Robbie’s arm and guided him to the barstool. “What’s that? Your third shot? And how many margaritas did you have at dinner?”

Robbie held up two, then three fingers, and shrugged. “Who cares? Everyone had their New Year’s on Sunday. Tonight’s mine, and I want to celebrate.”

“If you celebrate any more, you aren’t gonna remember your first night out of the New Year.”

“Don’t care,” Robbie said, as he waved his hand through the air with flourish and leaned a little too much into the action. Luckily, Elliot was there to prop him up. “I wanna have fun tonight. Do something I shouldn’t.”

Elliot leaned his elbows back on the bar so he was facing the dance floor and said, “Why don’t you get out there and let someone do you instead? You look gorgeous tonight, darling.”

He’s right, I do look cute, Robbie thought.

In his skinny jeans and purple V-neck tee that was practically a second skin, Robbie had gone all out with smoky eyes and a new pink shade of gloss he’d bought a couple of days ago that tasted like—mmm, strawberries. He could totally hit the dance floor, find a willing man, and let him do all kinds of things. But that seemed so boring tonight, so normal, and so not what he wanted.

He wanted wild. He wanted adventure. He wanted danger. And when the two men he knew were both those things entered his mind, Robbie quickly shook his head, trying to shake them free.

Stop thinking about them, he ordered himself, but that was easier said than done. One of them was one of the sexiest men he’d ever seen, and the other the most frustrating—and what was worse was that he couldn’t have either of them even if he wanted to. What was with everyone being fucking married all of a sudden? And to each other?

But oh the dreams he’d been having lately. The three of them, all sweaty and naked; they were enough to make him want to

No, no, no. That is the worst idea you could have, Robbie told himself. Drunk or sober.

Worst.

Idea.

Ever.

Plus, you don’t even like one of them. So stop obsessing over it.

“Earth to Robbie…” Elliot said, waving a hand, and Robbie shrugged.

“I don’t know. I’m just not in the mood.”

You’re not in the mood to grind all over a naked man? Okay, where the hell is my best friend and what did you do with him?” Elliot asked as he swept his black bangs out of his eyes.

“I don’t know.” Robbie slumped forward on the bar, dramatic as ever, and looked up at Elliot from under his lashes. “I think I’m in a state of mourning, El, and I don’t know how to get out of it.”

Elliot frowned. “Is this about Logan? I thought you were happy for him and Tate?”

“I am, but— Ugh. They just got engaged, and now all of a sudden, he’s married. Married.”

“I know, babe. But you knew it was coming.”

“Doesn’t make it any easier. Knowing there are two more beautiful men off the market forever due to a ring and a piece of paper is just depressing.”

“Two more men?” Elliot said, regarding him with a suspicious eye. “Who else do you know who’s hitched?”

Julien, Robbie instantly thought, as an image of the famous chef came to mind.

Julien “the Prick” Thornton. And this time, as Julien’s name ran through Robbie’s head, he made a point to roll the Jul over his tongue the way Julien had when he’d introduced himself that night at the bar. That’s right…Julien “I’m gay, gorgeous, and, oh yeah, married to your worst enemy” Thornton. He was hitched.

“No one,” Robbie said, and pouted. Then he swiveled on the stool to look out at the men gyrating all over one another. “You go and play for the both of us. I’m going to sit here and—”

“Ferment?”

“Okay that word is too big for my brain right now,” Robbie said, and winced. “Go and feel up the muscles and men for me. Someone should get some enjoyment out of them.”

Elliot pursed his lips. “I don’t know…”

“I’m just gonna sit here. Not going anywhere,” Robbie promised, crossing a finger over his chest.

“Your heart is on the other side, genius.”

Robbie switched sides and did it again. “I’m just gonna drown my sorrows so my body hurts tomorrow and will take my mind off my broken heart.”

“Aww, cheer up, Buttercup. Your Prince Charming will come to you one day soon.”

“Well, until then”—Robbie gestured for the bartender—“I’m going to drink myself into a deep slumber in the hopes that maybe he’ll come on me, or, you know, at least kiss me back to life.”

Elliot placed a hand on Robbie’s arm. “Do not go anywhere. I’ll be back for you.”

“I can’t feel my legs to move, so… I’ll stay. Like a good little boy.”

“Don’t know how good you are, but…” Elliot chuckled, then before he headed out to the dance floor, said, “Where’s your phone?”

Robbie dug into his pants pocket and pulled it free.

Elliot opened the contacts and scrolled down to his name, and then set it on the bar in front of Robbie. “You need me, call. Do not leave this seat.”

Robbie touched his fingertips to his temple in a sloppy salute and then hiccupped. “Yes, sir.”

“Okay. Be back for you soon.” Elliot then turned to the bartender and said, “No more after this for him.”

When the bartender nodded, Robbie’s mouth fell open. “Hello, you’re not my mother.”

“Lucky for you. She’d be spanking your ass right now, not to mention your sisters, and I’m sure you’d much rather have that done by a man who would then pound it afterward. I’ll be back.”

Robbie dismissed Elliot with a wave of his hand, and then took great interest in scrolling up and down his list of contacts, searching for someone to occupy his time. It wasn’t until he saw Julien’s number that he realized how drunk he was, because that was the only excuse he could think of as to why he hit call.

Well that, and: If there’s a bad decision to make, I will make it.

Review – In Harmony by Emma Scott

In Harmony Cover

In Harmony by Emma Scott

My rating: 6 of 5 stars



”If we are true to ourselves, we can not be false to anyone.”― William Shakespeare, Hamlet

It’s hard when reading to realize the impact of mere words. Words that have the power to both break you and put you together again. I don’t know if I can truly put into words the impact felt when I read the beauty that Emma Scott brings to life. IN HARMONY is one of those books where you feel every word; you FEEL EVERYTHING through your pounding heart to the depths of your shaking soul. Words that reach in and grab your heart, holding it tightly. Words that steal your soul, stomping on it with each breath. I’m breathless, bare, broken, and bleeding from this book, In Harmony, which in mere minutes became my MEANING … MY ALL … MY EVERYTHING.

There’s something special about a young adult (YA) romance, one that gives a voice to teens who often struggle with words as they navigate the bridge to adulthood while wading in treacherous waters. Being a teenager is difficult, trying at times for all, especially when no one really listens. YA allows young men and women’s voices to be prominent. YA brings their sometimes heartbreaking stories to life, ones we finally hear, ones they can finally tell, ones we can finally tell too.

”I’m trying to…find myself in the dark.”

Emma Scott flawlessly and fearlessly—through her heartfelt and honest words—tells the heartbreaking but strong stories that many victims find hard to relay. This incredibly talented author and GIFTED STORYTELLER portrays the struggles so many victims face, uncovering abuse that some endure, while shedding light on tough topics often stuck in the dark. Emma has given one genuine and gut-wrenching but gorgeous voice to a teen hero and heroine, who, together, find light in the dark. Told through Shakespeare’s masterful Hamlet in the era of #metoo, In Harmony is a deeply moving and brutally honest story of survival after shattering, of life after feeling dead inside. If you’ve ever been a victim of abuse or assault, this book speaks directly to you.

”You have a flame too, don’t you?”
I silently asked him.

“You guard it with your life. Mine gets blown around in the slightest breeze.”

Willow and Isaac are both beautiful from inside out. These two teens are lost souls until their souls find each other. Perhaps this union was of fate, meant be like a rainbow and rain, and sun after a storm, shedding light to their dark worlds.

Dark sees dark.

He looked at me like he could see me.

Like sees like.

I recognized the heaviness in her eyes because I had it too. Loss and pain pressed down on her.

This hero and heroines’ chemistry is UNDENIABLE. I MELTED from the MAGIC of Isaac and Willow, their slow burn burned me. I felt their SPARK. I felt their SOUL stamp all over me. Together, this hero and heroine were the sun amid the storm, and I felt their dark and light penetrate me.

”Us dead people, we rest in graveyards.”

“You’re not dead, Willow.”

“Not all of me,” she said.

Teaser 2

This line WRECKED me where I wept for Willow!

A HARROWING and HEART-WRENCHING love story told through the eyes of Hamlet and threaded with #metoo, In Harmony is a story that buried itself deep inside me and will never leave. In Harmony shines and shatters like shards of glass. This book will break you and put you back together again—piece by broken piece—in the most beautiful of ways. I BROKE SO HARD for the broken hero and heroine! This tragically touching tale took me back to my own #metoo moment at age 16, one that I kept buried until I was an adult. I broke for them. I broke for victims. I broke for me.

I burn. I pine. I perish.

This HEARTBREAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL book touched every part of me in one EXTRAORDINARY EMOTIONAL JOURNEY. In Harmony is so RAW and REAL. Emma Scott’s realistic-like words pulled me in—tugging me under—as I sank into an emotional abyss where every sensation sparked to life. In Harmony bled into every part of me where its words were all I could see and be. This story SHOOK ME TO THE CORE! In Harmony is a journey that I’ll FEEL FOREVER, one engraved on my heart and tattooed to my soul.

”I’ve been waiting for you my whole life.”

27939505_10210870618178290_1724347285_n

In Harmony is worth all the first and last kisses! I can’t rate this soul-shattering story high enough!!! It’s a TOP 2018 read and a LIFETIME because it’s the kind of journey in words that will touch you for a lifetime.

”Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.”― William Shakespeare, Hamlet

“In Harmony…gives a voice to the voiceless…”

The root of all madness is an unbearable truth…

At seventeen, Willow Holloway’s life was torn apart. The happy, driven girl is gone, and she is left wracked by post-traumatic stress her body remembers even if she does not. When her father suddenly uproots the family from their posh penthouse in New York City to the tiny town of Harmony, Indiana, Willow becomes more untethered and lost under the weight of her secret. On a whim, she auditions for a part in the community theater’s production of Hamlet and unexpectedly wins the role of Ophelia—the girl who is undone by madness, and her love of Hamlet… 

Isaac Pearce is from the ‘wrong side of the tracks.’ The town bad boy. Girls pine for his attention and guys are in awe of him. That he’s an acting prodigy only adds to his charisma. Isaac utterly disappears into his characters; the stage is the only place he feels safe from his own traumatic home life. He wants nothing more than to escape to Broadway or Hollywood and leave Harmony behind for good. 

No one can play Hamlet but Isaac, and when the director pairs him with Willow in acting class, they clash again and again—neither willing to open their hearts to anyone. But clashing leads to breaking, breaking leads to the spilling of terrible secrets, and soon Isaac and Willow find Shakespeare’s words mirroring their lives. When they are cruelly torn apart, neither know how this play will end—with madness and heartache? Or healing, love, and the discovery of who they are truly meant to be.

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.”

 After a colorful array of jobs all over Europe ranging from translator to chocolatier to travel agent to sushi chef to flight dispatcher, Elle Aycart is certain of one thing and one thing only: aside from writing romances, she has abso-frigging-lutely no clue what she wants to do when she grows up. Not that it stops her from trying all sorts of crazy stuff. While she is probably now thinking of a new profession, her head never stops churning new plots for her romances. She lives currently in Barcelona, Spain, with her husband and two daughters, although who knows, in no time she could be living at the Arctic Circle in Finland, breeding reindeer.

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.

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.

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!

Five Heat Wave Stars!

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.
