BLURB:

BA sexy and spicy sequel to our sizzling saga of Noah and Ethan’s story.
Someone has been suspiciously sinful, but who can blame him? Our lusty lads, Noah and Ethan, are led into licentiousness, by a libertine of a spooky spirit.
Driven by Noah’s desire to protect his partner, Ethan, from this depraved demon, Noah enlists the talents of a Paranormal professional to solve his elemental problems and we meet the mysterious Marvel but is he a Master or Masquerade? Friend or Foe? Specialist or Spurious?
As they deal with despondency and despair, testosterone and tears, in determining their destinies to be loyally loving and tenderly together. Resentment runs rampant and as the intensity increases, it adds fuel to the fire. Will the deceit be discovered before it destroys? Will they be rewarded with retribution or repercussions? Will the truth be triumphant and the visitor vanquished?


This is the second book of the series, and I do recommend you read the first book to get the basis for this book. This author has a way of pulling you into the paranormal world in such an erotic way. He had me thinking that a ghost might be fun, but then I kept reading.

So, Noah and Ethan are lovers and live together. They are very happy with each other and can’t seem to get enough of each other’s bodies. They have great chemistry as we learned in the last book. But, Ian the ghost, loves messing with them. He gets to Noah in a sexual manner and gets to Ethan on an emotional level. It’s all fun and games for Noah until he realizes that Ian is making Ethan question their relationship and he becomes fearful of losing his true love.

This is where Dan, Noah’s work buddy comes in, and he learns all this crazy paranormal stuff from Noah. Low and behold, Dan knows Uncle Marvel, a man that communicates with the paranormal. I absolutely love this character. Marvel is a different character because he can follow these spirits with his mind and be where they are and see what’s going on. He’s good looking and charismatic, and Dan is head over heels for him.

My heart goes out the Ethan because Ian has him believing that Noah is being unfaithful. But, how Ethan deals with all this is soooooo hot and sexy. Eventually, Noah figures it out and asks Marvel and Dan for help. This is where more spirits come after him, and these are not friendly at all.

This book really encompasses the characters in this second part of the series. It left me with a bit of a cliffhanger, so I wait for part three. Good job Pierce and could you hurry up with that please? LOL. A good read.

Review: “How I Hurt” by Bazan Kay

BLURB:

Pirates off the coast of a dangerous tropical island have captured Riley Geller and his friends. There is no end to their cruelty — especially once they discover that Riley is an immortal. Riley’s pain becomes a journey, one that is artfully orchestrated by his warden: an infamous, stoic assassin with a few secrets of his own. It is up to Riley to master his own suffering and discover his greater purpose in life, even if it costs him everything he’s ever known.

“My colleagues believe that you like it when they hurt you,” Chavez said.

“Sick fucks,” Riley croaked, but he was breathing too hard with excitement and betrayed himself. He knew Chavez could pick out the light in his eyes. It was like a second wind. Riley tried to move again, so Chavez pressed the hand on his chest down harder, disturbing his fractured ribs.

“I’ve made a small fortune off addicts of all kinds,” Chavez continued. Once again, Riley was captured by his stare, pinned and motionless, unable to look away from his dark eyes. “I know one when I see one.”


Warning. I feel I must give readers a warning that this is not BDSM. This story is about human trafficking and the extreme abuse and beatings that go along with that. This is definitely a dark, paranormal, horror read with some erotica. I am not saying any of this to deter readers from reading this story, but as I am one that lives the BDSM lifestyle, I don’t want readers thinking that this is that kind of story.

With that being said, the author did an incredible job with the reality of human trafficking. An American group of friends were kidnapped by pirates and taken to the island Temuba. We meet Chavez, who is like the ringleader of the group and a true anarchist king. Chavez and his men are excited about the money they will get for this group of people they have.

One of the captives, the runt of the group, Riley, was the boogeyman’s brother. Chavez was very adamant that he not be marked up at all. The boogeyman is Gringo Loco, and everyone is afraid of him. Riley is set on escaping with his friend, Adam. The story that follows is gruesome. There is brutal beatings that Riley has to deal with that are so realistic and sent chills through me.

There’s a lot to the story, and I don’t want to give too much to away. My heart went out to Riley, and I found myself holding my breath on more than one occasion. If this is your kind of read, you will enjoy the reality this author brings.

Review: “Two Natures” by Jendi Reiter

TITLE: Two Natures
AUTHOR: Jendi Reiter
SERIES: –
PUBLISHER: Saddle Road Press
COVER ARTIST: Don Mitchell
GENRE: Come To Age, Contemporary Romance
E-BOOK: YES
PAPERBACK: YES
LENGTH: 376 pages
RELEASE DATE: September 15, 2016
PRICE: $4.99 -e-book / $22.00 -paperback
  

BLURB:

Jendi Reiter’s debut novel offers a backstage look at the glamour and tragedy of 1990s New York City through the eyes of Julian Selkirk, an aspiring fashion photographer. Coming of age during the height of the AIDS epidemic, Julian worships beauty and romance, however fleeting, as substitutes for the religion that rejected him. His spiritual crisis is one that too many gay youth still face today.

This genre-bending novel couples the ambitious political analysis of literary fiction with the pleasures of an unconventional love story. Vivid social realism, enriched by unforgettable characters, eroticism, and wit, make Two Natures a satisfying read of the highest sort.

Perry Brass, Amazon bestselling author of The Manly Pursuit of Desire and Love and the novel King of Angels, says of Two Natures: “If you want to know what life is like in Nineties New York, when Style has become God, sex has become a contact sport, and jobs, money, and survival are always around the corner someplace else, then this late coming-of-age novel is a good place to start.”


This was one of the most difficult books I’ve read. I’m not a religious person, so I found it hard to empathize with Julian’s struggle with the religious faith of his childhood but the description of the LGBT scene in New York City in the mid-1990’s is spot on. Set against the early days of AIDS. Julian’s story takes us from his college days through his struggle to make it as a fashion photographer, with all the shame and glamour of that world. He’s already escaped his narrow-minded and abusive father and his family crop up regularly in his life. We witness a hilarious scene when they come to visit, and he throws an impromptu dinner party with some friends. He engages in an open relationship with Phil, a gym monkey who he falls for, who turns to…well, an alternative career. I’m not going to give the plot away.

Julian’s career slowly builds as his personal life descends into a nightmare. He indulges in a drug-fueled night which ends up with him deciding whether to take an AIDS test or not. He’s persuaded by Peter a ‘friend’ with an alter ego, who comes to mean a lot to Julian. But it’s not Julian who succumbs to AIDs, and he ends up as a carer for someone he loves. I wasn’t keen on the open attitude to unsafe sex and drug taking but I recognize it was honest and reflective of the culture and time in which the story is set, it’s integral to the story and not at all gratuitous. It also gives the story a gritty realism that I found compelling.

This is a very detailed orientated and wordy book. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a deep look into the spiritual, political and sexual impacts of that era.

BLURB:

Noel: I’m finally free and able to patrol my own territory without Marco being by my side. I really appreciated everything he’s taught me, what can I say… that big, brutal bastard grew on me. However, before I can embark on my new life as a General, I have to fulfill a debt my Father owes to the dragon king, Evander. This should be interesting. At least I’m not going alone. Dante, newly-mated to Josef, will be going with me.

Elijah: Today is the day our plan finally comes to fruition. I’m praying that everything falls into place just as we have designed it to. But you never know with these sort of operations. Humans can be as unpredictable as supes. I do know one thing, Deacon better come and get me.

Vex: As a reward for my loyalty and service, my King has given me permission to pick the human I want to have turned into a werewolf. I’ve had my eye on the perfect guy, too. Whether he wants to be a wolf or not doesn’t matter to me. Once it’s done and he’s mine, he’ll learn to heel and obey.

Kendrick: It’s been a long time coming with years of strategic planning, from the night I killed my Alpha to the day I killed the dragon king, making me a ruler in my own league. I’ve had my eye on the Odin Colony for over a decade, but I knew I needed to wait until the right moment came to strike. They should fear me, because when the dust settles and the streets are flowing with blood, I will be standing victorious.

Warning: This series is highly addictive, and fans have complained that it’s all they can think about, oftentimes re-reading each book until their next fix. Be further warned: This serial contains strong adult content not meant for sensitive eyes as each episode will be filled with dark, twisted, raunchy and steamy scenes between powerful, sexy men that will either offend you or get ya revved up. This series will not be pulling any punches, and it won’t apologize for hurting your feelings, either. You’ll find no fluff and ruffles here. The vampires are not misunderstood, hopeless romantics looking for love. The werewolves are not cute and cuddly and the dragons aren’t the ones from your childhood. This is NOT a romance


As usual, this author has sucked me into his dark, erotic and unapologetic paranormal world. If you have not read Nicholas before, I strongly suggest you start with The New Haven Series. This is where it all began. This is a new season of the series, and you will want to understand everything up until now. This author has created a world of vampires, werewolves and dragons and it’s not a world for the weak. There’s a no holds barred with this author and if you’re offended easily, by all means, look elsewhere. But, if you like dark, taboo, M/M sexual paranormal and forceful situations, then grab hold of the seat of your pants and enjoy the journey.

Theoden’s boys are taking to their new roles beautifully and are just as sexy as ever. Noel and Dante have a hot date with the Dragon King, Evander, and holy hell. This ménage is super-hot and sexy and had me panting. This happens before the mating of Josef and Dante is to happen. Deacon and Elijah are getting ready for the day they’ve been planning to take over the wolf territories. Elijah is hoping everything goes as planned with Dominic’s human gang and that his mate, Deacon, shows up for him. I really missed all my boys and was happy to get caught up with them. But, there are new and exciting new characters to meet.

Meet Vex, a dragon, which is one of King Evander’s right-hand men. He has been a very loyal dragon and has been given the gift of a human. He has his choice of any human to turn into a werewolf and to be his little puppy. Vex has the perfect man, Isaiah, and brings him home to begin the change. You see, dragon venom will kill a human but not a werewolf, so Vex will have his way with his new pet and will enjoy every last minute of it. He will train him to please Vex whether he wants to or not.

Then there’s Kendrick who has already killed his alpha. Now, he’s waiting for the perfect moment to kill King Evander. Once he does this, he believes he will rule all the worlds of the paranormal. Kendrick can cause some real problems, BUT I do not believe he’s as prepared as he thinks. He has no clue to the strength of Theoden’s boys or the rest of the pack’s alphas. He also has his right-hand man, Monroe. I love Monroe, and I hope he you do too. He’s flamboyant and adorable.

Of course, Nicholas has left me wanting the next episode, and like a good little reader, I will wait as patiently as I can. He loves to make us readers suffer just like his characters. I warn you now, you may want to alone with yourself to read this book. ENJOY

Review: “The Werewolf’s Resolution” Caitlin Ricci

BLURB:

Banan was interested in Owen the moment Puck let him into the pack, but Banan is shy and Owen is anything but. Adding in that Banan is ten years older than him, and he’s sure he never had a chance to begin with. But his New Year’s Resolution is to be more outgoing and to connect with people. He’s been procrastinating until St. Patrick’s Day. Now, with a couple of beers in him, this werewolf is ready to make his move.


This was a fun, quick read where the author has brought us into a world of vampires and werewolves. Now, you’re saying this is nothing new, but it is. This author has introduced us to Pucks Pack. This pack has accepted the outcasts of these two worlds and has created a world for these two to love each other as is.

Banan is a very shy werewolf that gets tongue-tied every time he tries talking to a hot guy. I found Banan a very endearing character. I’ve never found such a hot strapping werewolf shy before. He has his sights on this hot little vampire but has never held a conversation with him. Oh, he wants to, and he imagines talking with him, but he just can’t find the words. So, he just sits and watches him dance and dreams of being with him.

Owen is this hot little vampire and also has a thing for Banan. He’s watched Banan just watch him and has waited for him to approach him, but nothing. Maybe a hello here and there but nothing more. So, Owen makes the first attempt to start a conversation. What he finds is adoring how Banan gets so tongue tied and can’t seem to speak.

I love how the author has paired these two in this safe pack. This was such a fun read even being a short read. I felt like the characters fit well together. I felt their struggle trying to get to know each other. And I loved how this pack has created a safe haven for the ones others think as outcasts.

BLURB:

After serving five years in jail, Logan is ready to start over and forget all about his past. But things are not that easy, especially when people can’t see past the ex-convict, and getting a job is harder than ever.
Meanwhile, Kyle has finally come to terms with his own sexuality and does the hardest thing he’s ever done in his life: getting a divorce from his wife, Jessica, with whom he has a toddler named Ryan. He leaves both behind in a bid to rebuild his life and to become the father he dreams of being to his son.
It’s in this hurricane of life-changing events that Logan and Kyle end up meeting each other by chance in a small town far away from their previous lives. The spark between them is immediate and strong, but they both try to fight it, coming up with excuses not to pursue it.
While their friendship evolves, they find themselves even more attracted to each other. But will Logan trust he can find love with another man while his past is still so present? And is Kyle ready to invest in his first gay relationship at the same time as he’s fighting for his son’s custody?
Set in a small town with quirky characters and all the peculiarities that only a small town can offer, Logan and Kyle embark on a journey that could change their lives forever. But will they feel free to follow through?
WARNING
This book contains explicit sexual scenes as well as some graphic language. It is intended for a mature, adult audience.


I have become such a fan of James Lee Hard. This is a story that he has written so beautifully about real life stuff. How we all make poor decisions and some worse than others. How there are consequences for our choices, some more severe than others. How, even though we make mistakes, we don’t have to pay for them the rest of lives.

Logan is one of these people. He served five years in jail for a mistake. He has served his time and just wants to start over, but people can’t seem to see past the convict. Finally, he lands a job and is very grateful for it. Logan is moving forward with his life with work, his probation, and everyday living. Logan isn’t even thinking about love. That is until Kyle walks into his work one day.

Kyle has just come out to his ex-wife, Jessica. Kyle has come to terms with himself and his sexuality, He decides to move away from his ex-wife and his young son, Ryan. He’s still very involved with Ryan and raising him. Kyle wants work done on the house he just bought, so he goes to hire someone to do the work. He walks in and sees Logan. Both men are breathless and have a hard time speaking. I found myself holding my breath when they first set eyes on each other.

The author has this amazing ability to make me feel the love these two share and all the fears that come with it. Logan falls in love with the toddler while he and Kyle fall deeply in love.

So, what can go wrong? What’s a good relationship without trials and tribulations? Why do we have to be self-destructing to ourselves and not trust? These are just some of the questions I asked myself about these guys while reading.

This is a wonderful read about discovery, parenthood and love. I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end.

BLURB:

Six years ago Ellis walked into his first briefing as the newest member of London’s Specialist Firearms unit. He was partnered with Wayne and they became fast friends. When Wayne begins to notice changes—Ellis’s erratic temper, the effects of sleep deprivation—he knows he has to act before Ellis reaches his breaking point. He invites Ellis to the opening of the new BDSM club, Secrets, where Wayne has a membership. His purpose? He wants Ellis to glimpse the lifestyle before Wayne approaches him with a proposition. He wants to take Ellis in hand, to control his life because he wants his friend back, and he figures this is the only way to do it.

There are a few issues, however. Ellis is straight. Stubborn. And sexy. Wayne knows he has to put his own feelings aside to be what Ellis needs. What surprises the hell out of him is finding out what Ellis actually requires.


OH MY GOSH. These authors have done a spectacular job writing this book into the BDSM lifestyle. This is a spinoff from the Collars & Cuffs series, and I’ll be getting that series. Even though there are appearances from those characters, this is about two new characters and can be read as a stand-alone, and you won’t feel lost. These authors really captured the true meanings of Dom/Sub roles. As someone that knows the lifestyle very well, I feel this book can help people looking into the lifestyle can get a real feeling how it works. A true Dom will always know what best for their Sub better than they know them self. A true Dom is always aware of their role, how the Sub is feeling, how to best push them, how to help them lose problems and, most importantly, make them feel comfort and safety. A true Sub learns how to trust, how to let go and give all to their Dom.

Now to meet Wayne and Ellis. They have worked together for the past 6 years and are best friends. They have stressful jobs as London’s Specialist Firearms Officers and worked closely with a strong group of men. Wayne is out about being gay, and Ellis is straight. The guys are known for teasing Wayne, but it’s all in good fun. Wayne cancels plans to go out with the guys one day because he has other plans. When alone, Ellis asks what his plans are and is in shock to learn that his best friend is a Dom and is going to a grand opening for the club, Secrets. Out of the blue, he shocks Wayne and asks to go with him to know his best friend better.

What you need to know is not all Dom/Sub relationships are sexual, just 95% of them. Wayne has been watching Ellis fall apart at the seams for the past year. Making mistakes at work, always being extremely tired and losing his temper at the drop of a hat. Now that Ellis knows that Wayne is a Dom, Wayne figures it is time to take Ellis in hand and help him get his life back in order. Ellis, of course, fights him on this until he can’t take anymore of life and gets suspended at work. This is where Barb, Ellis’s sister, is brought to life to Wayne. Slowly, Wayne learns about his family and how they had misled Ellis for many years and took everything, including Ellis’s soul. It is truly amazing what happens when Ellis finally lets go and lets Wayne care for all his needs.

The journey a Dom/Sub experience is a wonderful experience of trust, compassion and letting go. These authors have fulfilled this journey for me, and I recommend this to any readers that want to experience this journey. This book contains BDSM, club scenes, punishments and really hot sex. Please Enjoy the journey of Wayne and Ellis.

BLURB:

Just a little Love Bite: When the unexpected happens, it doesn’t always mean the end.

When the Horseman of War decides to have a little fun and he accompanies a favored demon into the human realm to join in a skirmish, he never expects to meet a vampire that jumpstarts his libido. A romp with Monte Hanover would be fun, passionate, and maybe even worthy of a repeat…after they finish the battle, of course. To his surprise, he helps rescue a prairie dog shifter that brings out protective instincts he didn’t even know he was capable of. Unfortunately, little Xerxes turns out to be Monte’s beloved. Scratching his itch with either man seems unlikely. Then, the unthinkable happens, and he realizes without his intervention, it would mean the death of both men. Can he take that leap? Or will War decide two lives, in the grand scheme of things, isn’t really worth the changes he’d need to make?


This was a very charming and sexy read. The author did a great job of getting right to the characters and getting me intrigued from the get go. Even though this is book 12 of this set of the series, I felt good about the focused characters in this book. I must say I will be reading the series now because I really enjoyed this book.

First, I got to meet War, one of the Horseman of the Apocalypse. He is listening in on a conversation that Monte, the vampire, is having with the master vampires. See, War has the hots for Monte, but Monte can’t stand the sight of War. War is there to help the vampires fight a war with priests that want to wipe out the vampires. The master vampire, Dante, has paired Monte and War together for the next mission. Monte is really trying to get out of the arrangement.

War is seven and a half feet tall with red eyes, large horns and huge bat-like wings of pure sexiness. He teases Monte constantly, and Monte turns him down at every turn. Before entering the war zone, War kissed Monte with such passion, Monte couldn’t fight it. He couldn’t hide the lust he felt. And just like that, they go to the war zone and slay priests around every corner.

As War makes it to where the prisoners are held, he discovers a priest that overly enjoys torturing people, we get to meet Xerxus. He’s the adorable prairie dog shifter. He has been blinded from torture. He’s a scared little thing, but as soon as War rescues him, he snuggles right up to him. As Monte enters the cage, it is apparent that him and Xerxus are mates.

That’s where I will leave you all hanging. I love these characters and their chemistry and their struggles. This story will have you feeling scared for them, feeling love for them but you will also feel happy. And the hotness in this book will have you wiggling in your seat.

BLURB:

Ethan & Justin Hard, along with their best friend Sparky, have formed Enigma Investigations to search out paranormal activity.
Case 1.
When their first potential…and adorable…client experiences missing time after a UFO sighting the Hard boys are all too eager to jump on his case. Will the Hard boys be able to solve what happened during his lapse of time?


I have to say I had a lot of fun reading this author. He has a fun and adventurous way of telling this story. This is the first installment of The Hard Boys.

In this wonderful Scooby Doo adventure, you start off meeting Justin and Ethan. They love being gay, and they love messing with their best straight friend, Sparky. Justin and Ethan have this wonderful chemistry among them, but they won’t let their emotions get involved. These characters bring so much to this book. There is humor, adventure, sexual lingo that was even new to me and hot sex.

These three characters started Enigma Investigations in the city of Mysteria. As Justin and Ethan finish a hot sex session, Sparky knocks on the door. Of course, they answer the door naked, and Sparky is fifty sheets of red. He tells them they have their first customer coming over. This is where we meet Brandon. Brandon claims to have been abducted by aliens. When Brandon shows up, Justin and Ethan are in instant lust. The thing is, Justin was straight before being abducted, and now he wants nothing more than to have these two men. The things Brandon can do since his abduction drives the two men mad. They didn’t even imagine the things being done to them.

Justin and Ethan go investigate where Brandon said he was abducted and hit a motorcycle. So they think. They are abducted along with the guy from the motorcycle. The things they witness this homophobic motorcyclist go through is so intense and hot at the same time. These aliens really know how to have a good time. Meanwhile, at home, Sparky is questioning the way he’s feeling towards Brandon. Sparky has always been straight, but he cannot deny his attraction to Brandon.

While this book is a fun and sexy read, it also carries a powerful message. The way this author carries this message through this story is amazing. I find it that in today’s time, we still have to worry about homophobes the way we still do. It shouldn’t take aliens coming to earth to teach everyone to let everyone love and live as they are. But, since we’re not there, as of yet, then enjoy this adventure.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves extremely naughty MM action, loves to laugh and wants to learn new sexual terms and descriptions. I can’t wait to read more of this author.

BLURB:

2nd Edition

Can an old-fashioned cowboy and a young man on the run from his dark past find a future together?

Herschel is a simple rancher who believes everybody deserves a second chance, which is why he tends to hire underdogs—like Dalton, a young cowboy who needs all the support and TLC Herschel can offer.

Dalton doesn’t think anyone can forgive him for what he did, but Herschel seems willing to try. In fact, he might be the best thing that has ever happened to Dalton. He might even be the one to help Dalton trust in the future again. Just when he’s about to tell Herschel everything, all hell breaks loose. Herschel must help Dalton break free from everything that’s haunting him, or they’ll both end up alone.

First Edition published by Torquere Press, 2010.


Even though this is the second book in the series, it can be a standalone. Book one was on Tate and Dave, which are in this book briefly but did not hinder this book at all for me.

Herschel is a good ole cowboy in his thirties that runs a ranch for him and his sister. The one thing I love about cowboys is their big hearts and the way the help others in bad situations, Herschel is no different. He believes people deserve a second chance and hires his right hands that are such people.

This is where the author introduces us to Dalton. He’s a 28-year-old cowboy on the run from his past. He’s a hot ginger with freckles and all. He believes his past is so horrible, that no one can ever know the real him. Dalton is attracted to this big cowboy, but Herschel keeps trying to ask questions. Dalton can’t reveal his real self and tends to run back to the bunkhouse.

This couple is a very sweet and charming couple. Herschel is very understanding and thinks Dalton’s problems are not as dramatic as he makes them out to be due to his age. The age references was the only thing that really bothered me. These two are not even 10 years apart but Herschel is made out to be this old man and Dalton is made to be a kid.

I really enjoyed how the author lets these two build their trust of one another. Trust is huge in relationships, and these two have definitely built trust between them. They even start planning holidays together. That is until Dalton’s sister shows up and Dalton just leaves with her.

Herschel shows Dalton what it’s like to have someone stand behind you no matter what. I recommend this for anyone who enjoys sexy cowboys and an endearing love story.
