Bear’s Pup (Rescue for Hire Book 1) Audiobook by Bellann Summer Narrated by Darcy Stark

bear's pupBlurb

Welcome to the world of Rescue for Hire. Meet the team members that make up a company that forms a family of heroes. Cade Miller is the owner of the company and is a dominating alpha in mind and body. Cade rescues Bret James on a mission. The instant connection between the two cannot be denied, and he decides to keep him. Bret may have submissive qualities that mesh completely with the big bear, but it is his mischievous side that keeps Cade on his toes and coming back for more. But Bret has evil stalking him.
When the past wants revenge, can Cade discover who has taken Bret and stop him from being a victim again? The team will have to use all of their skills to rescue Bret before all hell breaks loose. Because when the big, bad alpha is crossed, nothing will stop him from getting his pup back.

Review

This is the introduction to the Rescue For Hire series. In it we meet the team and it’s team leader, Cade. Cade rescues Bret from an abusive boyfriend and immediately “claims him as his own.”

It’s sort of a D/s relationship but not by any sort of typical rules. Bret lets Cade make most of the decisions until he decides to throw a fit and then he gets his way.

In this book Bret is thrown into trouble at least three times, and Cade must rescue him in his super-alpha-badass way. Bret is teeny tiny and Cade is huge.

I love this series and love this couple, but it honestly isn’t my favorite in the series but it’s still so much fun!

Darcy Stark narrates the entire series (so far!) and I really like his interpretation of the alphas and their mates in these stories.

If you like a very sappy, sometimes OTT romance where the alpha does a lot of rescuing but is in turned cowed by his partner – with a small element of D/s – this is right up your alley and I highly recommend it.

One Step Further (Memories #2) by Felice Stevens

one step furtherBlurb

Alex Stern has it all; good looks, charm, a job he loves and everyone calls him a friend. He lives life to the fullest at a breakneck pace, in the city that never sleeps. But Alex is also a master pretender; not even his best friend sees the pain that Alex hides so well. Alex himself isn’t sure who he is or what he’s searching for, he only knows that he hasn’t found it yet.

As a veterinarian, Rafe Hazelton loves each animal that crosses his path; they don’t care if he stutters a bit or that he prefers men. Their love is unconditional, but his life is still empty; they can only give him so much. New friendships convince him it’s time to break the wall of loneliness he’s hidden behind since childhood and discover what he’s been missing.

Alex and Rafe forge a friendship that turns physical, and they both swear that the relationship will last only as long as the fun does. But when old heartaches come to light and secrets hidden for years are revealed, Alex and Rafe discover if they accept what’s in their hearts and take it one step further, the greatest reward is waiting for them in the end.

Review

We met Alex and Rafe in book one. Rafe is the shy veterinarian who helps Micah with his dog and Alex is Micah’s best friend from med school. Alex is a player and Rafe is a serious guy. They shouldn’t have anything in common, but they both have secrets and a painful past.

Alex and Rafe eventually end up as friends then friends with benefits then … something further.

The questions are: Will Alex let Rafe in and will Rafe let himself believe he’s worthy?

**

Felice Stevens is an excellent writer who gives us a very sweet and emotional romance between two very broken characters. They both have something in them that makes them feel unworthy.

Luckily the two of them are forced into a situation that makes them see each other for who they are and we get a very HEA in the end.

Highly Recommended.

(Can be read as a stand-alone.)

Part & Parcel (A Sidewinder Story) by Abigail Roux

release day review

Riptide Presents

http://riptidepublishing.com/titles/part-and-parcel

Part&Parcel_500x750Blurb

Nick O’Flaherty and Kelly Abbott had their happy ending in sight when a friend’s call for help almost ended with them losing it to the blade of a knife. Now, in the aftermath of near-disaster, both men are trying to heal and move on.
Moving on together, though, is harder than either of them realized it would be. Kelly struggles with simply being a lover instead of the Doc, while Nick is mired in his recovery. The distance between them inches along in stilted silence.
Desperately seeking solace, Nick finally gathers the courage to sort through the possessions his dear friend and fellow Sidewinder teammate Elias Sanchez left him when he died. Instead of comforting memories, Nick and Kelly find a stack of letters and strict instructions from Eli that prompt them to send out a call for assistance. With Eli’s letters in hand, Sidewinder sets out on one last mission together, seeking peace and absolution from beyond the grave—and from each other.
Review

So the Sidewinder series is definitely something that “could be read alone” but I don’t really believe it 😉

These books are all best read in order and Part & Parcel falls in the timeline after Crash & Burn, the last of the Cut & Run series books. I think that Nick and Kelly’s story is far too woven in to really appreciate without reading the entire series.

Kelly & Nick have been best friends for years and only recently been lovers. In Shock & Awe the two cross from friends to lover and in Cross & Crown they “cement” their relationship more, but as you find out in Part & Parcel they are definitely not as fully entrenched in the relationship as you’d think. In Crash & Burn, Nick almost dies and we are left at the end of that book with Kelly and Nick post-stabbing.

Kelly is helping Nick to recover and this is something he’s done for his team forever, but now that Nick is his lover, things have changed. But it’s way more than just that. Nick held a lot back from Kelly over the last year or more and Kelly has to decide if he can forgive Nick for that. So, in addition to changing their relationship from friend, to nurse, to lover – they also have to navigate both Kelly’s feelings and Nick’s regarding the lies.

But that isn’t all… Nick has even more “truths” in store for Kelly – and vice versa, Kelly has some stuff he’s keeping from Nick. The two don’t know how to breach the chasm that seems to have formed between them. They know they love one another but there’s all this – stuff – between them. Using a letter and scavenger hunt left by their buddy Eli Sanchez, Nick, Kelly and the rest of the Sidewinder team end up going on a days long road trip together down memory lane. It’s an amazingly healing and painful trip and along the way – we hope – these guys finally begin to find some peace.

**12400073_10156295890225414_969637563_o

This was such an unexpected book! All of the other books in this series have had some mystery or crime or puzzle to solve and a lot of violence. I guess Eli’s game is a little puzzling – but it is in no way similar to the crimes and blood-shed, fires, weaponry, etcetera that we’ve seen in the other books in the series. Instead, a lot of really deep and sometimes funny, sometimes sad, and sometimes awkward backstory is told about the members of the team.

Nick is a surprisingly multi-faceted guy and we learn so much about him and Kelly (as well as the other guys on the team) that I’m really excited about the direction the series is headed.

Abigail Roux gave us Ty and Zane who are very deep and complex characters and up until now, I really didn’t see Nick and Kelly as very “deep”. They seemed like lunatics who loved sex and had wild fun times together, but who are not nearly as complicated as Ty and Zane (as far as character development).

So, for me at least, this book really got me re-reading the other books looking at Nick and Kelly with different eyes and with a different appreciation.

I loved that Abi took so much time with the emotions in this book. I loved that she made Digger’s character unique – and Kelly’s too – in a final confessional near the end. It gives the entire gang more solidity to them and makes their stories that much more intriguing. We get a break from the explosions to really look at the underpinnings of the team and it was really, really well done.

I know that fans of the series will love this and if you aren’t a fan of the series – you should really skip this 😉

Highly recommended. 5 of 5 stars

Between Sinners and Saints (Audiobook) by Marie Sexton Narrated by John Solo

sinners saints audioBlurb

Levi Binder is a Miami bartender who cares about only two things: sex and surfing. Ostracized by his Mormon family for his homosexuality, Levi is determined to live his life his own way, but everything changes when he meets massage therapist Jaime Marshall.
Jaime is used to being alone. Haunted by the horrors of his past, his only friend is his faithful dog, Dolly. He has no idea how to handle somebody as gorgeous and vibrant as Levi.
Complete opposites on the surface, Levi and Jaime both long for something they can find only together. Through love and the therapeutic power of touch, they’ll find a way to heal each other, and they’ll learn to live as sinners in a family of saints.

Review

Levi is a “Mormon” bartender who literally fucks any man willing and never goes back for seconds. He’s a surfer and when his back starts to hurt he begins to see a massage therapist in the hopes of alleviating the pain. He doesn’t count on the sweet, shy, funny man who helps him with his back and later, his heart.

Jaime has a tragic past involving sexual abuse. He locks himself away and won’t allow anyone in, but when the outgoing Levi storms into his life he can’t say no, especially when it’s Levi and his bed that make him feel the safest he’s ever felt.

In addition to navigating this sometimes awkward and painful relationship, Levi and Jaime have their family demons to overcome. Both serving as a wonderful sounding board for the other on the path to healing.

**

Wow. This is another great book by Marie Sexton. I’d avoided it even though I’m a big fan because of the religion and the pain surrounding these guys.

I have to admit that I wanted to strangle Levi’s family. I never got them. They made some great strides – sure – but they were so stubborn and ridiculous, I can’t believe they thought that offering Levi chastity was a viable option.

I loved that Jaime was the one who helped Levi heal with his family. His desire for the closeness they shared helped Levi to get past his own stubbornness and I think, vice versa for his family.

The sexual abuse part was fairly well handled, my only issue is that I think a professional counselor really would have helped Jaime get through his issues in a better way and couples therapy would have done them wonders.

Audiobook

For whatever reason, listening to this was a bit easier than reading it and I really enjoyed John Solo’s narration. He doesn’t go over the top – in fact no one even has southern accents as you’d expect – but he does a nice job of bringing the story to life.

I highly recommend this to people who have an interest in the Mormon lifestyle – the author clearly did her research and she manages to describe them without villainizing them. It’s a moving love story and very well done.

Knave of Broken Hearts Audiobook (Love in Laguna book 2) by Tara Lain Narrated by KC Kelly

Dreamspinner Presents
http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=7265

KnaveofBrokenHeartsAUDLGBlurb

Jim Carney has a full time job—running from himself. Since he walked out on his wealthy family at sixteen because he’d wrecked his best friend’s life over some yaoi graphic novels, Jim has lived a macho, blue-collar existence of too much booze and too little responsibility. Then Billy Ballew, the man Jim most admires, gives Jim a chance to come through as his construction supervisor. For once, Jim is determined to make someone proud. Then Jim goes in for a physical for his new job and his yaoi dream comes to life in the form of cardiologist Ken Tanaka. Jim discovers he has two heart problems—a wonky mitral valve and a serious attraction to his doctor. But Ken is a major player, and Jim might be just a notch on the doc’s stethoscope. To Ken, Jim is unforgettable—but the living embodiment of his traditional family’s worst nightmares.

How come the minute Jim decides to be responsible, he finds himself taking care of his kid brother, getting a proposal from a wealthy woman, making a deal with the devil, and winding up in the hospital—when all he really wants is the Knave of Broken Hearts?

Review
(Book Reviewed here: http://kimichanexperience.com/knave-of-broken-hearts-love-in-laguna-book-2-by-tara-lain/)

Abridged:

Jim is trying very, very hard to be straight, but he struggles. He drowns his true feelings and only with a healthy dose of alcohol can he bring himself to be attracted to women

He also gets the required physical to be on the company insurance and finds out he has a mitral defect in his heart which might or might not be serious.

Unfortunately, stress is a trigger for his disease, and after having met Ken (his cardiologist) at Shaz and Billy’s wedding and falling instantly in lust with the man, stress is his pretty constant companion. No woman can compete with the man who looks like every fantasy he’s ever had.

Ken, meanwhile, is trying to keep his family happy by finding himself a proper Japanese boy to marry. But he can’t help but be attracted to everyone but the men his mother finds for him.

When Jim’s health takes a turn for the worse, Jim is forced to be true to himself and to Ken. Ken, when faced with losing Jim also realizes he can’t be who his mother wants – not if he wants to be happy.

**

Tara Lain is an amazingly gifted writer. She manages to create these wonderfully developed and engaging characters that just pull you into the story from the get-go.

Though I really, really loved Ken and Jim as a couple and I absolutely saw the attraction from Jim’s eyes, I didn’t feel nearly as connected to Ken or fully understand his attraction to Jim nearly as well.  I did love the look at Japanese culture and the way Ken’s family “embraced” all the new decisions as they happened.  Ken’s mom is hysterical!

I also really liked Jim’s journey on this path and his personal growth – I thought that was very well written.

I appreciated the happy place everyone ended, but I wish there had been a bit more between Jim’s deciding to be truthful, Ken deciding to brave his family and the “ILY” at the end.  I think that we always want more of a good thing and Jim and Ken together are definitely a good thing!

It was a fantastic book and I really enjoyed it. I cannot wait for the next in the series, Ru is a great character and I know he’ll get a great book!

Audio

I love KC Kelly’s narrations! He has such a smooth and easy voice, and his pacing is great. He differentiates the voices and does a wonderful, subtle accent for the Japanese characters. I really like his interpretation of Ken’s voice – measured, concise, not heavily accented and I LOVE Ken’s mother! Oh- the Drama!

I really enjoyed this as an e-book and the narration is even better!

Commander’s Spitfire (Rescue For Hire book 5) Audiobook by Bellann Summer Narrated by Darcy Stark

commander's spitfireBlurb

Welcome to the world of Rescue for Hire. Meet the team members who make up a company that forms a family of heroes. For a year, computer expert Tony Grayson was another man’s dirty little secret. After months of pain from a huge betrayal, he can finally breathe again and sees a glimmer of a future. A rescue goes wrong bringing the boss’ brother Shane Miller – who’s big, dominating, and possessive – into Tony’s life. As far as Shane is concerned, the gorgeous Italian is his. Now he just has to lead the team for his brother, fix all the family drama, and put the pieces of Tony’s heart back together. Things finally get smoothed out, only to have his ex call, wanting Tony back. Tony’s decision could change lives and careers.
Can the foundation Shane has laid for their relationship be strong enough to keep Tony? The dynamics between a hard-edged bad boy and a hot-tempered, vulnerable yet gorgeous computer nerd heat up the sheets.

Review

To sum up the first four books :(each can be read/listened to as a stand alone, but the characters in the preceding books make entrances in the following books) Cade Miller (brother to Shane) has a company he created called Rescue For Hire. It’s dedicated to saving people in natural disasters and finding lost people, etc. Each member of the team is highly skilled in one particular area and together there is nothing they can’t do. (Like the A Team!) In each of the previous books, one team member – very alpha male – finds his life partner. They always know immediately that the man they’ve met is their “forever guy” at first meeting and the bulk of the book is their conquest of said man. They also have some rescues to perform and at least once a book, one of the partners ends up in mortal danger.

Shane is an ex military man who has come to help Cade with his company now that he’s become more of a family guy and wants less field time. Shane meets Tony – already a member – whose had his heart smashed by a closeted pro-baseball player (and brother to another team member’s partner).

Tony doesn’t want to get involved again so soon after breaking up with his ball player – so he resists – but it’s futile.

**

12193979_10156145522085414_379322835_o

These books are delicious fun! The men are unapologetically Alpha, and it totally works. Tony – who is no slouch himself- loves to be dominated and controlled and feels safe when someone takes over. He just has to let go first.

In the Audio format you get the bonus of having Darcy Stark for a narrator. He does each voice differently – giving each character a greater depth and giving the listener another perception and way to experience the character. In this case the man who steals the show is Shane. Oooo La La. Shane’s voice is panty-melting! It is deep and sensuous and controlling and masterful and…. Okay – you get the idea. Tony has a vague Italian heritage accent – punk-assed and spunky. Together – totally steamy!

I’m not so much into the spanking thing myself- but Shane makes it hot!

I highly recommend this series (in book or audio format) for fans of unapologetic Alpha males who control each and every situation but have a warm and gooey center for their life partner.

It’s a wonderful series and I recommend reading them/ listening to them in order to get the most from the series.

And Call Me in the Evening (Book 2) by Willa Okati

call me eveningBlurb

Eli’s still not great at wearing his heart on his sleeve and Zane’s still got trust issues, but they manage just fine. It’s all good. Right?

Yes and no. When the doctors find themselves grounded between trips for Medicins Sans Frontieres, things begin to change. Zane’s making plans for where they’ll go next, but homesick Eli discovers the opportunity to open a clinic of his own in his old neighborhood. He’d have thought Zane would be all over that, but Zane’s not listening. Meanwhile, there’s trouble in paradise between protégés Taye and Richie, and Eli’s ex-wife Marybeth has come back to town, bringing a heaping helping of hassle with her. Eli figures it’s no wonder he’s been having a heck of a time with chest pain—which he hasn’t told anyone about.

There’s something to be said for setting the story straight, it’s true. Eli knows he and Zane have a good thing going even if keeping it that way is the hardest—and best—part.

Review

Oh man. I was so looking forward to this book. I just loved “And Call Me in the Morning”– book one in this two book series by Willa Okati. It was one of the first m/m books I had ever read, and it touched me. It is a “gay for you” “friends to lovers” book between two men who find love and their sexuality late in life and it is incredibly sweet and yet very sexy. Willa has away with words that just gently tugs at your heart-strings and leaves you with a sappy smile, while still getting you a bit hot.

In this book she continues approximately where the first book leaves off and you definitely could not appreciate this book without having read the first. We find our newly minted lovers living their new lives together and we see what in their lives has been working well, and what has been struggling. I can definitely appreciate this look behind the HEA, kind of like seeing what happens to Cinderella after the wedding.

We also get to revisit old cast members like Taye and Richie and Diana and Holly and it’s very nice seeing them again and catching up on their stories. But, as it should be most of the book is about Eli and Zane.

I just love Zane’s character, he’s so sexy and sweet, but we see even less of him in this book than we did the first. I would have loved to “hear” more from his POV, especially since the first was mostly from Eli’s POV, it could have been an interesting twist.

Both of these books are really about Eli and his personal journey. Eli is a man’s man and struggles with being “gay” even though he has no problem admitting he’s in love with another man. That’s the main struggle in this sequel. Eli admits his love for Zane in book one and then deals with that fact in book two.

While this is probably fair and even a bit realistic, it can get a little dogged, and at times, trying.

Here is where I got a little disappointed. Well, a couple of places.

First, I didn’t realize just how much Eli had to still work through. I had thought we managed to get through most of that in book one. I have to say, though I love the characters and really enjoy Willa’s cool, smooth writing style, this got a little tedious. I was like… are you kidding me? I thought we had already worked this out! I seriously felt for Zane, he seemed to have a lot of patience for putting up with Eli’s hang ups and lies by omission, and at times caved in where I wouldn’t have.

Second, I love a good book about older characters, but in this book, my hot-for-each-other doctors were seriously showing their age. I appreciated the leaning towards realism, but it wasn’t what I necessarily wanted to read. I liked picturing them gettin’ busy and hot for each other, not getting sick with… well I’ll leave that to you to find out. But it sucked! It all works out in the end, have no fear, but – WOW – reality check!

I really did like seeing Taye and Richie and seeing them “grow up”. Holly and Diana were the same, which was nice. Mary Beth, the ex-wife, kinda confused me… a lot. But I guess she added her part to the story as well.

Overall, as sequels go, it did what it promised: it helped set the story straight and showed us more of these two beloved characters, and I did really love seeing more of them. I definitely felt that their HEA was a rock solid HEA by the end of this book. That’s always nice. But, I can’t say I loved the book. If “And Call Me in the Morning” earned a happy 5 stars, then “And Call Me in the Evening” earned a less happy 3.5 stars, mostly for good writing, solid editing, and a lot of sentimentality.

I recommend it to those who loved the first book, I think you’ll enjoy catching up on these old friends.

Lights and Sirens (EMS Heat #2) by Stephani Hecht

Lights and SirensBlurb

The past couple years have been a real bitch for trauma nurse, Lucas Harris. He’d given up everything to be in a relationship with a man he loved, only to find out the feelings weren’t mutual. Hurt and betrayed, Lucas leaves everything behind and moves to Flint, Michigan to start over again.

After a night of too many drinks, Lucas gets up-close-and-personal with paramedic Matt Shaw. The only problem is while Matt may be the sexiest medic in Flint, he’s also as straight as they come. The last thing Lucas wants is to be someone’s dirty little secret again, but at the same time he can’t deny his growing attraction to Matt. When a near fatal incident forces the men to face their feelings for one another, Lucas knows things will never be the same again. Will his heart be able to survive the outcome?

Review

Matt is straight, but not exactly closed off to the idea that he might be attracted to a guy. Lucas is wary of becoming another “secret” so he holds Matt at bay.

Eventually, with some help from a dangerous situation, the two realize that they have to be brave and give love a chance, no matter how it looks to the outside world.

**

Though this is only book two in the series, I want to put in a plug for the entire series. I’ve really enjoyed these “bite sized” romances. Each is short but with recurring characters from the previous books. There is a fair amount of hot sex but also lots of “feels” and satisfying endings.

If you’re in the mood for a quick, mostly light, always happy and sexy read – give this series a try!

Closet Confession by Kindle Alexander

closet confessionsBlurb

This stand alone version includes Bonus Scenes adding an additional ten thousand words to this novella. Closet Confession was previously released in the Night Shift Anthology.

Dr. Derek Babineaux is intelligent, dedicated, and one of the best ER physicians in the fast-paced world of critical care at Tulane Medical in New Orleans. Always on top of his game, he’s thrown off balance when the newest medical staff member finally unleashes his hidden desires.

Justin Delacroix’s job at the inner city’s busiest hospital might be just what he needs to ease back into civilian life after a long stint in the military. High-performing shifts make working as a trauma nurse at TMC the perfect way to utilize his skills and quick reaction times. There’s only one problem, his attraction for one sexy ER doctor is off the charts, but he has his reasons for not returning Dr. Baby’s night shift advances. Or maybe he doesn’t.

Review

First, let me warn you that since this was first presented as a short story in an anthology the first part takes place later in the lives of our MCs and there’s a flash-back that explains their back-story in the middle, followed by a new part added of their future.

So it’s a bit confusing but stick with it – it’s totally worth it!

Derek and Justin work at the same hospital and have the hots for one another. Justin does’t want to come out of the closet and also feels he isn’t good enough for the good Doctor.

Derek is tired of hiding his relationship but doesn’t want to push too hard.

In the end, both men realize they need to be brave to get what they truly want from life or else losing everything.

**

This is a super sweet, very hot, sometimes funny novella that will leave you with a smile on your face.

I loved the nurses and Dr. Baby’s aunt – so funny!

The smexy times are hot and the emotion is touching.
