Blurb

A love as easy as breathing.

Life started out rocky for Devin Rice, but it’s turned out pretty well. He has adoptive parents and a brother who love him, and he works as a coder for his dad’s video game company. Romance is scarce, but a chance encounter leads to more than he ever expected.

While dropping off an assignment for his sick brother, Dev meets his mentor. Art history professor Seth Kent is brilliant and gorgeous, just what Dev has been looking for. Except that he’s in a long-term committed relationship.

Seth’s partner, Leaf, is older and sees the world differently due to his unusual upbringing. To him, the clear attraction between Seth and Dev isn’t a problem, it’s an unexpected gift. After all, Leaf is often on the road, going wherever rescue dogs need rehabilitation.

When Leaf meets Dev, all the missing pieces fall into place, and three men from different worlds and at different points in life fill each other’s empty spaces. For them, building a future together is the most natural thing in the world. But their unconventional love causes waves in their careers and family dynamics, and each man has his own doubts and fears to overcome

Review
This is one of the best MMM books I have read. I absolutely loved the story of how these three complex men came together. Each met a particular need of the others, even finding new aspects that they didn’t realise were missing until now. There is also an age difference between the characters which is a very important aspect. This was one story I just didn’t want to end, I wanted to stay in their world. There is no angst even though each of them are dealing with very heavy issues from their past. These also play a part in how their relationship unfolds. The key here is communication, being very open with what they are feeling and any other problems. In this way they build a strength between them enabling them to deal with issues and support each other. I might be making this sound like a utopia but I thoroughly enjoyed reading about a three way relationship that clicked and wasn’t just about sex, although that is there as well.
This is a story I will definitely be reading again (and listen to if it comes out on audiobook)

Blurb: Gibson Keller’s days are fairly routine: wake up early, get some work done, drink lots of coffee, and take care of Ellis, his older brother, stuck in wolf form after coming home from the war. It’s a simple life made up of long runs on two legs—or four—and quiet evenings…. Until Ellis chases a handsome man off a cliff and into the frozen waters beside their cabin, changing Gibson’s life forever.

For Zach Thomas, buying an old B&B is a new start. Leaving behind his city life, he longs to find peace and quiet, and hiking the trails behind his property seems safe enough—right up to the moment an enormous black wolf chases him into a lake, nearly drowning him. Discovering werewolves are real astounds him, but not as much as the man who rescues him from the icy water, then walks into Zach’s heart as if he owns it.
Loving a werewolf—loving Gibson with all his secrets—has its challenges, but Zach believes their love is worth fighting for, especially since his heart knows the big bad wolf is really a prince in disguise.

Book previously reviewed https://openskyebookreviews.com/once-upon-a-wolf-wayward-wolves-series-by-rhys-ford/

Review: I enjoyed the story and was looking forward to listening to Derrick McClain narrate. He gives a good performance, his cadence and inflections gave a sense of urgency and tension at the very beginning of the story – where Zach is running from the wolf (Ellis). I almost forgot that Ellis was ‘playing’ with Zach, I was so worried!
With Mr. McClain one gets a nuanced performance, making the narration very easy and pleasant to listen to. I had no trouble knowing who was speaking.
All in all, it’s a very good start to a new series to read and listen to.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/26156429-daniel?from_search=true

Blurb
Daniel worked hard at college, using coping strategies to shut himself off from any situation that might hurt. But, persistent nightmares and fears for his future drive him to revisit the past. Now Legacy might be the only place to give him a chance at peace.

After the tragic loss of his parents, Corey is head of the family now, and the welfare of his three younger sisters are what matters the most. Corey is desperate to find Daniel, tell him the truth and somehow convince him to keep secrets. Even if this leads to heartbreak.

When the world crumbles around Corey, and Daniel is running scared, Legacy ranch is their only hope.

Review
RJ Scott knows how to squeeze your heart until it’s aching. Daniel and Corey certainly put me through the wringer. To get the full background about Bar Five and the events that occurred there I recommend reading the other Legacy Ranch books. However if you read this as a stand-alone you can still get a good idea of what the boys went through there. Daniel is making the best of his life despite the nightmares and anxiety. Corey had the perfect family life ripped away from him. To get some answers he visits Daniel. This is the start of a slow building relationship where b of them need to come to terms with their feelings and trust one another. So many emotions. I couldn’t put the book down. I read it straight through. Wonderful way to end the series. So full of emotions but ultimately satisfying.

Coming Soon!: From a Jack to a King by Scotty Cade

Dreamspinner Presents

https://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/books/from-a-jack-to-a-king-by-scotty-cade-9718-

Blurb
New York Times best-selling mystery writer Bay Whitman leads the life of a celebrity—at least on the surface. In public he’s self-assured and in control. Women hang on his every word, while men envy his confidence and swagger. But in reality, Bay is a loner. He’s shy and introverted, and his life consists of sitting in a dimly lit room writing his famous Jack Robbins mystery novels. His one vice—gambling. Winning an escort in a poker game will change Bay’s life in ways he never imagined.

Matthew “King” Slater is one of the hottest tickets in gay porn. He spends his days in front of the camera and his nights as a highly paid escort to the rich and famous. Deep down, he craves romance and a real connection, but his past makes it hard to separate the needs of his body from those of his heart. For now, it’s easier to think of sex as just a job. But while doing a shoot in Vegas, King is hired for a tryst at a famous hotel and casino, and his handsome client might blur the line between work and play

Review by Mary
I do like Scotty Cade. There is a gentleness to his work that makes it a pleasure to read. This story is about two men with similar childhood experiences that continue affect them in very different ways. Bay became an introvert who pulls on the invisible armour of his fictional character whenever he goes out. King developed an addiction to sex and ultimately found work as a porn star and high end escort. Their meeting was skilfully created, especially Bay’s reaction to meeting King and King’s reaction to how Bay behaves. There is a rocky start but Bay’s sincerity is not something King had previously encountered. Together they grow and change and over the course of the story find strength in each other they didn’t know they were missing. Initially I wondered if it was going to be a Gay for you scenario but realised that’s an outdated way to think. It’s more natural for characters to embrace their bisexuality or pansexuality when faced with an unexpected attraction to someone. I appreciated the depth of detail in this story. It’s all to easy to gloss over important issues. Their childhood history shows how events can trigger ultimately harmful coping mechanisms. I especially appreciated understanding more about sexual addiction. I would recommend this story if you are looking for a different romance with no angst just two people getting through the best they can and ultimately winning.

Review by Dee

This is my first book by the author and I quite enjoyed it. A porn star with a sex addiction and a shy, retiring writer could not be more opposite, but the story works.

Bay, the writer, lives almost like a hermit. When he has to promote his book, he channels the persona of his most popular book character – Jack Robbins. The only other time Bay willingly goes anywhere is to gamble, even then he’s more or less in character.

King is more outgoing and works as both a porn star and an escort. Funnily enough the professions help him mange his sex addiction, in a way.

When Bay first meets King, it’s not under the best of circumstances and both have preconceived ideas about each other – King thinks Bay may be in denial/the closet; Bay thinks King is only interested because he’s being paid.

Both men meet again and, after few misunderstandings are cleared up, they begin a tentative friendship that slowly becomes more. They address King’s addiction; Bay tries to be more outgoing. Together they become each other’s rock.

 

I liked how Mr. Cade touched on sex addiction – not in depth, but not glossed over either. It allows readers to research more if they are so inclined.

A nice story with a good HEA.

Blurb

Smart, shy Prescott sophomore Brandon Mills is working hard to overcome his troubled past and be normal. With the help of his friends Mark and Deacon, and his brothers at Phi Sigma Kappa, he’s slowly coming out of his shell. But when he accidentally drenches a freshman in orange soda, he faces something he’s not ready for: a boy crushing on him.

Alex Kekoa pledges Phi Sig because it has everything he wants: a house full of nerds who won’t tease him for being smart, a dog, and Brandon Mills. Brandon is just the type of guy Alex needs to help fulfill his college ambition: losing his virginity. Except Alex doesn’t know that Brandon can’t stand to touch or be touched.

When Alex and Brandon are drafted onto the Phi Sig Academic Challenge team, their mutual attraction grows. If there’s anyone who can help Brandon discover it feels good to touch and kiss, maybe it’s klutzy Alex with his cute glasses and his dinosaur obsession. But as the competition–and their relationship–heats up, Alex’s determination not to die a virgin clashes with Brandon’s vow of lifelong celibacy, forcing them to examine what’s truly important to each of them about love.

Review

Brandon Mills (best friend of Mark who we met in book one) is a shy, nerd, who loves dinosaurs, has an eidetic memory and a really, really crappy childhood.

Alex Kekoa is a giant nerd who also loves dinosaurs, has had a sunny childhood, is totally infatuated with Brandon, and is also a virgin (thus the title).

Alex joins Brandon’s frat just to be near him (and because it suits his style and brain). When he – in a fit of passion- kisses Brandon, it sets loose all sorts of thoughts and feelings in Brandon he didn’t know he had and definitely doesn’t know how to process.

First there’s the whole “gay” thing – which he doesn’t really identify as, but isn’t the biggest thing. The biggest thing is the touching. Brandon doesn’t touch anyone. Not even himself.

Most of the book takes place in Brandon’s head. Figuring things out. Trying to remember to forget. Trying to learn how to be new. Using the hair-brained but wonderful advice of his kooky and sometimes high friend, Mark.

Alex is the most gentle and unassuming soul you could meet, exactly what someone with Brandon’s history needs.

Add into the mix Blake and his contributions to the LGBTQ association as well as Mark and Deacon’s continued coupledom and you have a delightful mix of the quirky and funny with the sentimental, tender and sometimes painful.

**

I couldn’t put this book down! I only skimmed book one. And only after I read this. Book one has some elements that I am uncomfortable with… so I just got the highlights. But… I do love Mark and Deacon as a couple and I enjoyed reading about them before they were a couple.

Brandon is so heart-breaking in this story. Gah! He tries so hard and does everything right but sometimes that still isn’t enough, is it? Alex is a wonderful boyfriend and together, the two of them exploring their feelings – it was so sickly sweet and funny and most of the time it felt really REAL.

I guess that reality is what makes me knock this down from a perfect 5 star book to a 4.5. I wanted and really hoped for Brandon and Alex to remain a couple – FOREVER and we get hints that they might… but no guarantees. In fact, I could honestly say that I wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t… just by the way their relationship to this point was handled. (When they do finally make it to boyfriend status, I never quite got the feeling from Brandon that he was as invested as Alex… but that could just be me.)

Anyhow – I loved how the first-time-sex scene was handled and thought it felt really authentic. Messy, imperfect and wonderful. I loved how Brandon grew, but not in a “fairy tale it all goes away” way. Again, that felt very authentic.

Blake is my absolute hero. I lurves him so much! He was so genuine and wonderful and such a tremendous ALLY! What a great way to view the world and what a nice way to open that discussion – gays in sports.

All in all this was a fun (sometimes), heartbreaking (sometimes), full of feels (all the times) and very well written book.

This writing duo makes for awesome character development and I can’t wait to see what they come up with for book three (which Lisa Henry has said is currently in the works!)

So… I highly recommend this to lovers of the v-card, college boy fans, anyone who loves a hard-childhood story and lovers of dinosaurs everywhere!

Audio

Joel Leslie is Frickin’ awesome! I’m so glad the authors chose him since he can do such a wide array of characters! There are so many unique voices and accents and Joel does them all – so wonderfully!

I adored this and his narration and … him!

Highly recommended!

Blurb
Seizing his one chance to escape, Ethan Hosking leaves his violent ex-boyfriend, leaves his entire life, and walks into the path of a raging bushfire. Desperate to start over, a new man named Aubrey Hobbs walks out of the fire-ravaged forest, alive and alone. With no ID and no money, nothing but his grandfather’s telescope, he goes where the Southern Cross leads him.

Patrick Carney is the resident lighthouse keeper in Hadley Cove, a small town on the remote Kangaroo Island off the coast of South Australia. After the tragic death of his lover four years ago, he lives a solitary life; just him, a tabby cat, the Indian and Southern Oceans, and a whole lot of loneliness. He’s content with his life until a stranger shows up in town and turns Patrick’s head.

Patrick never expected to be interested in anyone else.

Aubrey never expected to be happy.

Between Aubrey’s love of the stars and Patrick’s love of the ocean, these two fragile hearts must navigate new waters. If they can weather the storm of their pasts, they could very well have a love that eclipses everything.

Review
One of the romantic books I’ve read about two people and how their love heals one another. N.R Walker does it again. Her books contain so much more that I always get swept up in the story. Following the journey to a satisfying end. Seizing an opportunity Ethan grabs a chance to escape his abusive boyfriend. He becomes a new man Aubrey Hobbs. Aubrey remembers the advice from his beloved grandfather and follows the Southern Cross as far as he can. He reaches Kangaroo Island where he meets Patrick. Patrick is still grieving the loss of his partner four years ago. But he is drawn to this lonely enigmatic newcomer. He wants to protect and care for him. For Aubrey Patrick is the first friend he has had in along time and the first person he has been comfortable with. This is a beautiful love story. Two people slo getting to know and trust each other. Letting their guards down and seeing a possible future. One looking to the stars and the other to the Ocean. As it always does the past catches up. How they deal with it shows the strength of their new relationship. A beautiful story. One I’ll absolutely read again and again.

Lover – A Survivor story

Life has not always been kind to Shannon Dupree. On the outside he’s carefree and fun loving, but when it comes to his past he’s evasive and secretive. Running away from emotionally bereft parents at just fifteen, Shannon escapes life with them but steps into the waiting arms of the devil.

Rory Landers is a rising star at the Bureau. His personal life, however, is nothing to write home about. He hopes to take his limited relationship with Frank Moore to the next level when they finally solve the Langford murder case, but that doesn’t turn out as planned. On the plus side, he meets free-spirited college senior Shannon Dupree.

Rand Davis finds himself fortysomething and single when his partner of more than a decade is unfaithful. Taking over the Cold Case Squad frees up some of his time, and Rand welcomes newfound friendships within the Langford-Moore family circle. He thinks relationships are not in the cards for him until he meets an agent with an attitude and a vivacious blond that make him want so much more.

Past, present, pain, and suffering collide, ushering in the possibility of a life and love worth fighting for. Although their personalities couldn’t be more different, their three hearts beat the same. Shannon, Rory, and Rand learn the definition of love, commitment, and strength and if they allow themselves, the trio will find all that and more—in each other.

Review

I definitely enjoy this series. I thought book 1 was amazing and really heart wrenching at times. This had some of that same emotional pull but didn’t feel as tightly presented as book 1.

I’m not always a big fan of ménage and it has to be done right for me to enjoy it versus think it’s ok as far as the romance goes. For me – the chemistry and the hurt/comfort was right on target for this throuple – however, I didn’t always feel they were equal partners and that Rand sort of felt like a addition rather than integral to the overall success.

Perhaps if the story had gone on longer or the throuple had developed sooner I might feel differently – but we get to see these guys acting as a unit for only a very short time and while it has huge potential – I can’t say it’s more than HFN for me.

The writing/editing/pacing seemed up to the author’s usual standards and I think fans of her work will be pleased.

Recommended.

Book two in the Turning Point Series.
A fight for what’s right becomes a fight for his life.
As guilt plagues him, Matthew Elliott’s world begins to spiral out of control. The harder he holds on, the more it slips through his fingers, and he’s helpless to stop it.
Entering into the underground cage-fighting scene, he starts out fighting for what’s right. The deeper he gets, the more guilt consumes him – the more pain he takes for his penance – and he’s soon fighting for more than justice.
He’s fighting for love.
He’s fighting for his life.
The third edition has a new cover and has been re-edited, though no new content has been added.

Review

 

I had forgotten the emotional toll this book takes. This is not a standalone, and takes place right where book 1 leaves off.

 

NR Walker is great at giving us these complex and somewhat broken but not completely broken characters. Matt is losing it but can’t tell Kira and it’s killing them both.

 

Luckily – we find out that love can conquer all – but… and here’s where NR Walker does something amazing – Kira and Matt agree that their relationship needs WORK and that it’s not just enough to say “I love you” and everything is sunshine and roses.

 

I really appreciated that nod to reality with this story.

 

The sexual chemistry is still there, but it is tempered by the emotions and does not preclude real discussions.

 

Highly recommended.

As usual Sean Crisden manages to continue to impress the hell out of me with his ability to show emotions and keep all the myriad characters separate and the action from dragging and …. Well everything! He absolutely adds to the overall experience and this is highly recommended!

Blurb

A ghost of a chance at love.
Personal trainer Will Golding has been looking forward to a getaway with his best friend, Baz, a journalist researching a book on ghosts. But on the first day of their camping trip on the Isle of Wight, Will takes a walk on a secluded beach and spies a beautiful young man skinny-dipping by moonlight. Ethereally pale, he’s too perfect to be real—or is he?

Lonely author Marcus Devereux is just as entranced by the tall athlete he encounters on the beach, but he’s spent the years since his parents’ violent death building a wall around his heart, and the thought of letting Will scale it is terrifying. Marcus’s albinism gives him his otherworldly appearance and leaves him reluctant to go out in daylight, his reclusiveness encouraged by his guardian—who warns him to stay away from Will and Baz.

The attraction between Will and Marcus can’t be denied—but neither can the danger of the secrets haunting Marcus’s past, as one “accident” after another strikes Will and Baz. If they don’t watch their step, they could end up added to the island’s ghostly population.

Review
This book is a mystery with a gentle romance wrapped up within it. Whilst his best friend Baz is researching his book on ghosts Will meets enigmatic Marcus, a reclusive writer. Will doesn’t know that Baz has another story he’s investigating involving Marcus and his family. Both sides of the investigation dove tail together taking Will and Baz all over the Island. I loved the descriptions of places and attractions on the island, they evoke a wonderful atmosphere when reading those parts of the story. The beautiful coastline with rugged cliffs and sandy beaches, tales of the ghosts of smugglers and soldiers, pubs in historic settings. Makes me want to go there right now. The romance is full of English reserve, Will and Marcus don’t properly get together until towards the end but it was totally fitting with their characters and what was going on around them. The mystery side kept me entertained, the bad guy was obvious from the outset and it ws good seeing the characters playing catch-up. At times Baz provides the comic element, he’s a very self centred character and in that regard I didn’t like him. But you can see the depth of friendship between them. Overall I felt this was a very enjoyable story.

Blurb

An erotic gay romance, a suspenseful thriller….
A series of murders in New York City has stymied the police and FBI alike, and they suspect the culprit is a single killer sending an indecipherable message. But when the two federal agents assigned to the investigation are taken out, the FBI takes a more personal interest in the case.
Special Agent Ty Grady is pulled out of undercover work after his case blows up in his face. He’s cocky, abrasive, and indisputably the best at what he does. But when he’s paired with Special Agent Zane Garrett, it’s hate at first sight. Garrett is the perfect image of an agent: serious, sober, and focused, which makes their partnership a classic cliché: total opposites, good cop – bad cop, the odd couple. They both know immediately that their partnership will pose more of an obstacle than the lack of evidence left by the murderer.
Practically before their special assignment starts, the murderer strikes again – this time at them. Now on the run, trying to track down a man who has focused on killing his pursuers, Grady and Garrett will have to figure out how to work together before they become two more notches in the murderer’s knife.


Review

This was one of the first books/series I read in this genre and it totally got me hooked! I remember being so glad that I’d found this series after the bulk of them had been written because the emotional cliff hangars at the ends of these are killer!

Our guys go though SO MUCH. There are times when they are apart, fearing for their lives, considering the end… this author (these authors) aren’t afraid of anything.

There are countless reviews for this series – so I’ll just add my own few words.

If you aren’t afraid of angst, like humor and seriously hot smexy times, aren’t afraid to wait A LONG time for the emotional pay out – this is for you. The emotional pay out is there and so satisfying – but not for several books.

Our guys clearly are in it together – but they have to WORK for it and it’s not easy.

The secondary characters and the drama keep the relationship stuff moving along and does – at times – eclipse the romance. However, given the entire series – the relationship is at the center in the end.

 

Audio

 

Unfortunately, this is one of those series where we get a few different narrators. I think each of them added their own twist to the characters and all of them – in their own way – did a great job. The narration definitely adds to the overall enjoyment and I’d definitely recommend it as a fantastic way to enjoy this series. Especially if you have a LONG time to listen J
