3.5 stars

Foxy Tails was an interesting story, seemingly based around chinese mythiology, I found that part very interesting.

This book took quite a while to pull me in so as I was fully engaged, probably over the 40% mark, if the first part of the book had engaged me as well as the second part it would have been a solid 4 star read for me. It really wasn’t until they set off on their quest to find Healer’s source that I was fully invested in the lives of Healer, Huli and Ling LIng oh and of course the dog Ye Ying.

There was magic, shifters and spiritualism along with danger and intrigue.

I enjoyed finding out about their pasts and how they all finally connected, the romance between Huli and Healer was a fated mate kind of connection and was very sweet. I liked the intrigue behind all the events and the book ended leaving me hoping that there will be a sequel so as I can find out more about their fight for justice.


Behind him the barking continued relentlessly. They’d be upon him soon unless he figured out a way of retracting his tails. Once his tails were out of sight, they’d lose his scent.

Húlí rushed toward the wooden door, hoping it was unlocked and that whoever lived there had vacated the place. Once he was inside, he’d be temporarily protected from the hounds’ sense of smell long enough to calm down and get rid of his tails. At least that’s what he hoped.

Busting through the unlocked door, Húlí uttered a quiet thank you, the momentum almost throwing him into the roaring fire in the hearth directly across from the entrance.

“Who the hell are you?” a voice exploded behind him.

Shit! The house was not empty after all. Awesome. Now I have to deal with this human too.

“Close the fucking door,” Húlí begged, bracing his hands on his knees and trying hard to regain his composure. Even a fox like him got winded after such an intense chase.

“Not unless you tell me who you are,” the human male said.

Húlí turned halfway to look at him. Couldn’t he see his red tails, gloriously—and unwisely—unfurled behind him? Right, he couldn’t. Húlí had no control over the scent his tails exuded but he could glamour them from humans.

“I’m being chased,” he sputtered, trying to catch his breath. “Please, can you close the door? I will tell you everything afterward.”

The male, a tall young specimen with a mop of dark curly hair carelessly gathered into a high ponytail hesitated for a heartbeat before doing as he was asked.

“Thank you,” Húlí whispered, a sigh of relief escaping his lips. Now, he could slow his heart down and cut the trail of his scent. Brushing off the dust from his clothing, he took deep breaths and checked for damage caused by the chase. His arms and hands were scratched and bleeding, leaving a trail of red stains on his light blue long tunic. “Shit. Now I will have to trash my clothes. I liked this shan yi.” His outrage only grew when he found a large rip on his left side where one of the hounds had sunk its teeth in. “Damn dogs.”

Húlí shook himself off, his tails swooshing as he moved. Good, they’re retracting. The sound of his pursuers was getting closer, but he wasn’t as worried anymore. In a few more seconds, his scent would be back to human only and the hounds would lose his track. He lifted his gaze to the other man and was surprised to meet a pair of intense lavender eyes studying him.

“Who are you?” the man asked, crossing his arms over his chest. He cocked his head to the side. “Why are you being chased by the hounds?” There was sharp intelligence in those beautifully shaped eyes; they were finely cut jewels that glinted in the dim light of the fire.

Not jewels. Petals of a lotus flower. Exquisite.

“It’s a long story,” Húlí muttered, one last swoosh telling him his tails were finally fully hidden. “I don’t want to bore you with it.”

The stranger anchored his feet solidly on the ground and twisted his full lips into a half smile. “I have all day and nothing interesting to do.”

Release Blitz, Excerpt, Review & Giveaway: The Half Baked Plan By Becca Jackson

Love in No Man’s Land Series, Book 2


Fire took out my business, my apartment and almost my life a few weeks back, and now I’m living in my best friend’s house while I rebuild, and he travels the world. He found his perfect match and now It’s time I found mine.

After years on my own, I want a family, but I have zero hope in finding my match while I’m still completely crushing on the hottest builder in the world, and to make matters worse, he’s now my roommate.

I thought sharing a house with Carter would help me get over him. I’d see why he’s never had a boyfriend, or anyone worth bringing around town. I’d discover all of his faults up close and squash the perfect god-like image I’ve cemented in my mind all these years.

Problem is, no matter what annoying habits I jot down on my list, the more time I spend with him the more I’m convinced Carter is everything I will ever need. Now I just have to figure out a way to tell him.


With Michael traveling the world, it’s just Lucas and me in his house while we rebuild the café, bakery, and apartment. I’m happy for Michael. I really am, but seeing another friend get their happy beginning shines a light again on the fact that I might never get mine.

I’m sick of being everyone’s best friend, yet no one’s boyfriend. I want my happy beginning too. I want someone to pick me. To want me. To love me.

So I do what any single guy would do, I sign up for speed dating. Blind dates suck but I’m never going to find the one if I don’t start putting myself out there.

The problem is, the more time I spend living with Lucas the more I realize, I don’t want any of these random hookups. I want the sweetest guy I’ve ever met. The one who bakes me cookies to make me smile. So now I have to figure out a way to show him I can be an awesome boyfriend. I can be his happy beginning if he will just give me a chance out of the friend zone.

“Ohh, aren’t you delicious?” The guy wearing deep purple eyeliner preens as I take my seat at table G.

“Ahh, thanks.”

Theo taps the mic, gaining everyone’s attention. “All right, your night starts now. Have fun.”

The app chimes, and the guy across from me immediately starts talking.

“I’m Stuart. Thirty-seven, Capricorn, I’m a stylist and live in the city, but have visited this town a few times. It’s super sweet, I could totally see myself settling somewhere like here. I could open a salon. You obviously work out, so what else do you do besides pumping iron?” He props his head on his hands, tilting it to the side as he waits for my reply.

“I’m Carter. I’m a contractor.”

“Oh, so you’re good with your hands. I knew a big, buff guy like you would be.”

“Thanks. I, umm, live in town, but work all over depending on the job.” Lucas’s warm laugh sounds from somewhere on my left. I turn my head towards the sound, and like being pulled by a magnet, my gaze finds him. He’s sitting across from a man in a suit with slicked-back hair, flawlessly clean-shaven face, and impeccably manicured eyebrows. My jaw tightens.

Really? That guy?

I can’t see his face, but Lucas is smiling, and I hate that this man, whoever he is, is making Lucas smile that way. That’s my smile.

Stuart is talking again, and I’d be lying if I said I had any clue what he was saying. My gaze keeps being drawn back to Lucas.


I enjoyed the Half Baked Plan book 2 in the Love in No Man’s Land series.

After Michael (Mal) and Bobby (Bear) take off travelling at the end of Textual Connections, Carter is living in the attic rooms in Michael’s house. Lucas, Michael’s business partner at The Perfect Blend is suddenly homeless when their building which houses the cafe and Lucas’ appartment above it, burns down. Luckily he is able to move into Michael’s house while it is being rebuilt by Carter and his team.

Lucas has had a big crush on Carter for a long time, but not wanting to ruin their friendship he’s done nothing about it. After they start living together Carter starts to realise that maybe he has feelings for Lucas, but doesn’t believe he would feel the same.

They both do their best to ignore their feelings for quite a lot of the book, Lucas even makes a list (the half baked plan) of things that annoy him about Carter in the hope this will show him he’s not right for him. After a speed dating event organised by their friends they end up on a date and finally start to admit to their feelings for each other.

This was a slow burn romance between friends who become more, it was a fun, sweet read with plenty of baking and building as the two guys wake up to what and who they really want.

I enjoyed meeting up with the crew from the Crystal Queers quiz team and I’m looking forward to some more romances around these guys. I loved seeing how Michael and Bobby were going on their travels as they chatted to Lucas and Carter.

Book Blitz, Excerpt & Giveaway: Suddenly, Last Summer By Michael Robert


I professed my love for Jordy when I was seventeen. He was leaving for his last year of medical school after working another summer at my family’s Banks Lake resort in the Pacific Northwest.

Desperate for him to know how I felt even though he was my older brother’s best friend, and fearing that he wouldn’t return after that summer, I decided to take the plunge and admit my feelings while I had the chance.

As the adult in the situation, Jordy wisely chose to discount my confession as simply a teenage crush. But my last spoken words to him were that I’d wait patiently for him.

And I always kept my promises.


I’d been away from my small hometown for nearly five years. Life and a stressful medical residency had kept me busy, but I finally returned to fulfill my best-man duties for my best friend’s upcoming wedding.

His younger brother, Trey, was a sweet, sensitive kid when I left years ago. The shy, lean teenager who’d tearfully professed his love for me my last summer there had grown into a sexy, confident man. I was intrigued by what I saw, though I probably should have walked away again.

Had he actually waited for me to return? Did I hope he had? He was nine years my junior and my best friend’s little brother. But he could be so much more.

After five long years, it was suddenly last summer.

Prologue: Jordy

Five years ago

“Where is he?” I asked, setting the final packed box on the counter.

“Probably down at the dock,” Mrs. Barnes answered. Her back was to me as she finished with the dinner dishes.

“You think he’ll come up to say goodbye before I have to leave?” I couldn’t see him but knew he was most likely securing the resort’s watercraft for the night.

She wiped her hands on a dish towel, tossed it on the counter, and joined me at the sliding glass door overlooking the lake. We watched her youngest son while he busied himself at the dock. “He’s hurting, Jordy.”

I let out a small laugh but not because I was being insensitive. “Just like every other summer, isn’t it?” I asked.

“It seems worse this summer,” she said. “Since you and Brock started college, he hates the coming of September. I guess it’s too quiet for him with just Mom and Dad around.” Mrs. Barnes took a long breath in before sighing deeply. “Imagine how he’s going to feel when you graduate medical school this year and he finds out you won’t be able to help us out any longer?”

“I’ll be back,” I defended. “Are you saying you don’t need my help next summer?”

“You’ll be starting your residency after this year, son. I expect you’ll have to move to wherever that is next summer.”

“Let’s hope that happens, Mrs. B” I turned to face her, expecting a hug. “I haven’t received a hospital matching letter yet,” I added. “It’s competitive trying to get my first choice, so hopefully I’ll know where that is in a few months.”

“You are the single brightest kid I know, Jordy. Don’t be so modest,” she said, wiping something off of my shirt and fussing like mothers tend to do.

Mr. and Mrs. Barnes had been my surrogate parents ever since the accident, and I missed mine terribly.

“You better not let Brock hear you say that,” I said.

She giggled. “Even Brock knows that.” She glanced back toward the lake. “Can you check on him before you leave, son? I think he’s twice as upset today’s the day you’re leaving. You’d think he’d be missing his actual brother more than you.”

“I’ll head down after I load that final box.” I headed for the back door and the driveway before remembering an important rule. “Oops!” I turned back and found her scowling at me. “You know I wouldn’t leave without one of your hugs, Mrs. B.”

“As I thought,” she said, arms open wide for me.

We embraced and she kissed my cheek as a diversion while stuffing her hand in my shirt pocket.

“A little something for your trip.”

I knew better than to fight her about what I knew was additional money. I didn’t need money but she didn’t know that. “You guys already paid me out for the summer, ma’am.”

“Don’t ma’am me, mister!” She dragged her finger across her throat like she planned to slit mine.

“I love you,” I whispered and went in for another hug.

“I love you too, Jordy. Now please go say bye to Trey before you leave.”

It’d been another amazing summer on Banks Lake. My best friend, Brock, and his family owned a resort on the shores of the manmade body of water. This was possibly my last summer working at the general store/gas station/boat rental/RV park resort. Brock had already headed back to California. He was finishing law school and had relocated away from our shared apartment in Palo Alto. He’d also started a new part-time job and they needed him early. I’d stayed back and helped the Barnes’ finish up the summer. After Labor day, things slowed down in this ‘barely there’ town in Eastern Washington, so they’d manage fine without the extra help once I left.

It was strangely quiet as I walked downhill to the dock, trying my best to dodge the evening sprinklers. The bulk of the last tourists of the season was gone. Two motorhomes and a couple of tents were all that were left in the park area designated for campers. The cabins along the shore had no guests in them while a couple of the larger resort houses were still occupied.

I spotted Trey at the end of the main dock where all the rental watercrafts sat idle after a busy summer. He was in one of the larger pontoon boats, sitting under the canopy out of the late afternoon sun. It was still hot here in September and I knew he’d had a long day cleaning and securing the watercraft. His back was to me and he only noticed he had an intruder to his thoughts when I stepped off the floating dock and onto the boat, causing it to rock gently. He turned toward me and then looked away quickly.

“What?” I asked. “Not talking to me anymore?”

There was no response as he held his gaze across the water, avoiding mine. Trey was Brock’s younger brother. A terrific young man and very loving, but he wore his heart on his sleeve. Nothing like his older brother who was arrogant, sure of himself, and warm to few people. I was one of the people he was warm to, so we got along fine. Brock and I had been best friends since elementary school and inseparable ever since. College and post-graduate years were hurting that closeness, but the best friends tag still stuck.

Once away from Electric City and attending college at Stanford, I’d come out. It wasn’t a surprise to Brock as he’d known since sophomore year. He was straight but always said if he wasn’t, I’d be his guy on that front. Oddly, even though he was hot, I never saw him that way. Just not my type. Brock was too short, too dark, and too brooding.

The summer had been good for Trey. He was his usual end-of-summer, golden-skinned, self, with a mop of sun-bleached blond hair. He was smooth, lean, and possessed a naturally athletic build that had really come on the past two summers as he approached eighteen. We’d just celebrated his seventeenth over the fourth of July.

“I’m talking to you, kiddo,” I said a bit louder.

“I’m not a kid,” he whined, sounding exactly like one.

I moved to his side and rubbed the back of his neck. “I’m heading out,” I said. “Just wanted to make sure to say goodbye to my best little buddy.”

He swatted my hand from his neck. “Brock’s your best friend,” he stated, still avoiding eye contact.

I sat beside him on the wide boat seat and slid into him, forcing him over so I could invade his space and be close. I stared at the side of his angelic face while he continued to ignore me. Trey was a beautiful young man and had a heart of gold. Sometimes people easily dole out the expected compliments when describing attractive people, but Trey had earned his in spades. The kid was blessed in the looks department but had no clue. He was heartbreakingly attractive. But, he was still a kid and he was also my best friend’s younger brother, so I kept my heart’s opinions about him to myself. My feelings were curious concerning the attraction I felt toward him. He was a kid. I was an adult. Those were the facts and I’d decided to stick to them.

“Yeah, he is my best buddy, but I like you a lot too,” I answered, leaning forward and resting my elbows on the tops of my thighs, turning to see if he was looking at me.

Thirty seconds went by before he turned to me. He was tearing up.

“Hey now, buddy. What’s all this?” I put an arm around his shoulders and pulled him in tight. “I’ll be back. I promise I will.”

“No you won’t,” he mumbled, wiping at his eyes, clearly embarrassed about the tears. “Mom already told me you’re not going to be able to help us out next summer.”

“I might not become a doctor if I don’t work harder, so it’s not for sure, Trey. Besides, I’d never forget about you.”

“You’ll be the best doctor and you know it. You always get everything you want. Heck, even Brock says you’re the smartest guy he knows.” He hiccupped as he fought the full-on cry he was desperately trying to avoid. “Then you’ll just go off and I’ll never hear from you,” he said quietly, trying to shrug out of my hug.

I held him tighter so he couldn’t.

“Shit, even Brock doesn’t come around much anymore and now you’ll go away forever too.”

“That’s just not true, Trey. Come on. Why are you acting like this?” I moved my hand from his shoulder and held the back of his head, mussing with his sun-drenched hair. “We had a great summer didn’t we?” I asked. “I had a blast working and hanging out with you again.” His head slumped forward and I attempted to steer his neck my way trying to get him to look at me. He wouldn’t budge. “You don’t really believe I won’t be back, do you?” I asked.

He was silent.

“Look at me,” I said, nudging his side.

Trey turned toward me and had heavier tears streaming down his face. “You . . . you . . . you don’t get it, do you?” he asked.

“Get what?”

He shuffled his feet and tugged at threads hanging from his tattered jean shorts. “I love you, Jordy.”

“I know that, kiddo. I love you too.”

“Not like that,” he protested. “I love you, love you.

Release Blitz & Review: Prince of Lies by Lucy Lennox


Rowe Prince is a lying liar who windmills into my life in full colour, claiming to be Sterling Chase, a quirky, eccentric billionaire… and founder of the company I created. 

Two can play at the lying game, though, and I’m not about to let some burrito-delivering, floppy-haired virgin from Indiana best me at a game I was born to play. 

So I do him one better and pretend to be Sterling Chase’s new assistant. I’ll teach him a lesson that will hopefully wind us both up in bed… with nothing but the truth between us. 

But it turns out his shameless lies are enchanting… unintentionally hilarious… and make it all too easy to forget the truth…

Until I learn that this cutie’s intent is to defraud the company I’ve spent years building. I have to choose: risk the company or say goodbye to the man I’m falling for. A guy who just might be…

The Prince of Lies

Genre: MM Romance

Tropes: Billionaire/Mistaken Identity


This was a sweet and amusing read.

Full of heart and humour what starts out as a ruse to get into a charity event so Rowe can talk to someone about his idea turns into a twisty, sweet, crazy, fun journey into love and having his dreams come true.

I really liked the two MC’s Rowe and Bash, you couldn’t get two people from such different backgrounds who essentially want the same thing; to make a difference to people’s lives.

I loved how Rowe dug himself deeper and deeper into his outrageous lies every time he opened his mouth and I loved Bash’s reaction to those outrageous comments, I swear I couldn’t stop grinning at times.

The guys behind Stirling Chase, a start-up company, have managed to remain anonymous since it’s inception, but when Rowe (fake Stirling Chase) brings his idea to the attention of the group, it opens a can of worms no one was expecting and none of what is uncovered is good and could be detrimental to the company and their anonymity. I liked how the guys handled things and how they did the right and moral thing despite any fallout that could have occurred.

Bash and his friends were right characters and I really hope we get to know them better in future books because they would make for some fun and interesting times if the interaction they have in Prince of Lies is any indication.

Exclusive from TRY ME- Lakeview University Holiday Try-Mester (Shane K Morton)

“Come in.” I stood from behind my desk and walked around to greet him. Everyone deserved a… And my foot caught the corner of my desk, and the floor rushed towards me – but then it stopped. Two strong hands caught me and held me aloft – my glasses slid off my face and fell to the ground.

Well, that’s about as embarrassing as it can get.

“You ok?” He was a baritone. A nice deep voice that resonated within his chest.

He helped me back up, and I finally got my feet underneath me when the world spun. He was absolutely fucking gorgeous, and my mouth went completely dry as I stared at him with a dumb awestruck look on my face. Dark brown eyes with the thickest eyelashes in the world stared back at me as if he were worried I might stroke out at any moment.

I was making a great impression. I wanted to say something, but my throat had closed, and I felt like I needed to gasp for air. Jesus! That curly blonde hair was fucking beautiful. Women across the world were envious of this… Giant muscle-bound he-man with a dark tan. He smirked, and his teeth seemed to bling as the light hit them. Great… I had to stare at this for an hour twice a week?

Maybe I was having a stroke in front of the most beautiful man in the world – and I had to be his teacher… What the actual fuck was happening. I gasped as air finally filled my lungs.

“Do I need to get someone?” He looked worried.

I held up my hand. “No… Sorry, I’m fine… I… uh… Just embarrassed, is all.” I completely lied. I wasn’t embarrassed – I was mortified and wanted to crawl underneath my desk and hide from this soccer stud who probably had a million followers on Instagram.

“No need to be embarrassed. I play soccer and fall down all the time. I’m your…”

“Darren. I mean, not my Darren… uh… but my new student, Darren. Yes.”

“And you are?” He grinned slyly. He had to know the kind of power he had over people. He had to know how hot he was, and I tried to get my jaw to move so I could speak. I glanced away.

“Sorry.” I cleared my throat and looked back at him. He was blurry. Maybe I… Oh! Glasses.

I bent forward to pick them up and collided once again with him. Our foreheads slammed together, and I winced as I stood back up.

“Sorry.” He grinned and held out my glasses to me. “I have a hard head. Sorry.”

I rubbed my temple as I took the glasses from his hand. “Looks like you have a hard everything.” I frowned and wished I could take the words back.

His grin lit up his face.

“I mean, you’re very muscular, not that… Wow!” I frowned. “I guess I’ve made the best first impression I’ve ever had.”

“Maybe the most memorable.” His brown eyes narrowed as he looked at me. “Maybe we should start again?”

He chuckled as he turned and walked out my door, and closed it behind him. My stomach swirled as if someone had put a hook in me and was pulling hard. If I puked in front of him, I would have to quit teaching forever. He knocked, and I had to stop myself from grinning. He was being very cute and had handled my… incident with grace and kindness. Maybe he wasn’t so bad after all.

“Come in.”

He opened the door with the widest and prettiest smile I had ever seen and stuck out his hand. “Hi. I’m your new student Darren Petersen.”

Release Blitz & Review: ILYBSM – I Love You Both So Much by J.E Birk, Rachel Ember & Leslie McAdam

About the book

Everyone has secrets. I’ve kept some big ones from my two best friends, and I know they’ve got a few of their own. After all, Embry and Adam never told me why they stopped talking to each other the night we graduated college. For my part, I’ve never told them that I’m bi—or that I’ve been in love with both of them for years. I’m also definitely not telling them I’ve mismanaged my family’s tree farm so badly that it’s about to go out of business right before Christmas. 

But when I crash off a ladder hanging up holiday lights and break my wrist, they come running like Santa’s elves. They’re both very grumpy about seeing each other again, but I can’t be sorry to finally have an excuse to get them in the same place. Wait until they find out we’re all sleeping in one bed… 

At least their feud is put on hold when they discover what a mess I’ve made of my business. Soon the three of us are scrambling to pull off a Christmas miracle and save the farm. And maybe it’s the magic of the holidays, but a whole lot of feelings and long-buried truths are coming to the surface—and our friendship is starting to become something much bigger. 

Will we survive the season? Or are all my dreams about to be crushed this Christmas? 

ILYBSM is a sweet and steamy contemporary holiday m/m/m polyamorous romance about three former best friends. It stars Jeb, a sweetly oblivious farmer who’s the hottest mess to ever grow trees in Vermont; Embry, a mechanic who can fix any engine but not a relationship; and Adam, a graphic designer and organizational whiz who irons his sheets. It features truths that slip out thanks to homemade eggnog, a demon goat who looks fabulous in a Santa hat, and an unconventional happy ever after. 


I’m a big fan of Rachel Ember and have enjoyed books by J. E Birk and Leslie McAdam so was excited to read a collaboration by all these authors, the fact it was MMM was a bonus.

ILYBSM was a fun read, full of friendship, misunderstandings, steamy bedroom scenes, and emotional/romantic/sexual awakening between friends and a HEA, oh, and a goat called Sherbert.

These three guys have been friends for years and none of them knew the others wanted more than friendship or that any of them were anything but straight. When Jeb, Embry and Adam are brought together after Jeb has an accident they are all forced to deal with feelings they’ve been hiding from for a long time.

Jeb has been hiding how bad things are with his business from everyone and is one of those stubborn people (like myself) who doesn’t like to ask for help. On top of dealing with their complicated relationship they also have to navigate trying to save Jeb’s business and working out what each of them wants for their futures.

I enjoyed the group text messages at the end or beginning of each chapter which helped show their relationship whilst they were at college and added an extra dimension to the story.

The side characters were all fabulous and many played a big part in helping Jeb, Adam and Embry with their relationship and the business. I look forward to hopefully seeing them in the future.

Communication is definitely the key to making this triad work and survive. I really enjoyed seeing the relationships between these three blossom into something stronger than and more than friendship. Their desire to explore their sexual relationship with each other was both fun and steamy. Each of these guys brings their own issues to the relationship that all have to be navigated and worked through before a HEA can be reached.

ILYBSM by Leslie McAdam, JE Birk & Rachel Ember is now live!

Release Blitz, Review, Excerpt & Giveaway: Rescued By Hayden Hall

Rescued Ebook


Oh my goodness this book pulled at all my emotions, I felt so much empathy and heartbreak for what Archer had been through and was going through. The strength it took him to leave his abusive boyfriend Thomas was massive. The internal dialogue that told him how terrible he was for leaving and all the other disparaging thoughts his subconscious forced on him that he had to push aside and believe in himself, was heartbreaking at times and at times he was able to realise that these were Thomas’ words and not at all true.

I applauded the police detective who was able to see beyond the initial charges he was brought in on and recognise that something was very wrong and offer him the help he needed to find a safe place to put himself back together. The LGBT shelter and its model are perhaps something that needs to be trialled in real life and there definitely needs to be much more funding for these kinds of shelters.

I loved the connection he formed with Brooklyn upon meeting him in the shelter and how they both needed each other to help put themselves back together. There was so much more to Brooklyn than originally met the eye. Brooklyn was so perfect for Archer and the support he gave him and the love they grew into were beautiful

Archer’s journey was not an easy one, his dysfunctional family; his sister and his father added to the emotional baggage that he was trying to deal with and discovering his sister’s situation nearly ends up destroying him all over again. Archer makes some decisions that made me wish I could jump into the story and stop him from making them, but he has such a big heart and wants his sister and niece to be safe and happy, but as is often said, you can’t help someone who doesn’t want help, they need to come to that realisation themselves and ask for it.

The scenes with his abuser Thomas were hard to read and I know my heart beat faster at these times wondering how he could possibly get away and how easy it is for narcissists and abusers to hide their true selves from the people around them.

An emotional read highlighting some topical issues that need addressing now so that the people who need it can find the support networks they need. The romance part was both hot and emotional and though a hard read at times, definitely a good one.

Character 1

Sanctuary, Book 1

Running away is only the first step. Moving on is the hardest.

When Archer Navarro escapes his emotionally abusive boyfriend in the middle of the night, he hopes to step into a better life.

A turn of bad luck ends Archer’s flights as soon as it starts, but the kindness of strangers brings him to an LGBT shelter.

And it brings him to Brooklyn. He’s the moody, drop-dead gorgeous tenant in the apartment next door, and he soon becomes the source of Archer’s hope.

Their chemistry is instant. It’s hot enough to melt the snow that’s about to bury them. Brooklyn makes Archer believe there still might be some love in him left to give.

If only the past wasn’t getting in the way. If only Archer could let those around him help.

The road of trials tests these men’s will to hold onto one another.

Tensions with his estranged family and a lifetime of scars threaten to take Archer back to where it all started. Back to the house where he was a little more than a prisoner.

And when the future of both their lives depends on it, Archer and Brooklyn need to answer it once and for all: can broken hearts ever beat the same again?

And can love ever be enough?

Rescued is the first book in the Sanctuary series, but it’s a complete standalone with no cheating or cliffhangers and with a guaranteed happily ever after. This book deals with darker themes of abuse and, while it’s generally sweet, it’s not for everyone.

Character 2


Archer shivered at the thought of a warm bed and hot soup as the northern wind rolled over the courtyard, making the bare tree branches tremble. He followed Marion up the concrete stairs to the hallway. It was roofed, but totally open to the courtyard. Some doors had plastic chairs and metal tables in front and all rooms had windows. The space between the doors was quite big, which probably meant several people occupied each room.

Marion looked at the door frame where a small metal plate had 221 inscribed on it. “Your apartment, Archer.”

Just as Archer stopped at the door and was about to push the key into the lock, the 220 door flew open.

In an instant, Archer felt like someone had gut punched him and he was about to lose his balance. The temperature of his body rose by a few degrees immediately and he was dead certain his face was turning red. The man who had opened the door looked like he was around thirty years old with a close-cropped black beard and coarse, pitch black hair. He wore a pair of house slippers and light gray sweatpants. And nothing else at all. His torso was sculpted, waist narrow and chest wide, with a layer of fine, short hair sprinkled over his tanned skin. He had curved eyebrows, as if he was confused about something, and parted red lips like he was about to ask a question. Archer’s senses dulled when he saw the man and his heartbeat flooded his eardrums.

“Put something on, Brooklyn. You’re going to freeze,” Marion said firmly, but with the same air of kindness in her voice.

“They’re just tits, Marion,” Brooklyn said.

Marion bit back a laugh. “Nobody wants to look at your tits.”

One corner of the young man’s lips ticked up like he could read Archer’s mind even though he hadn’t looked at Archer at all. But the thought in Archer’s head was loud and clear: I don’t mind looking.

Release Blitz & Review: O Deadly Night: A Dark MM Charity Anthology

Book Title: O Deadly Night: A Dark MM Charity Anthology


O Deadly Night was a dark anthology, there were some stories I enjoyed more than others and some were only introductions for the full story to come soon.

When I think anthology I think of fully formed short stories which can act as prequels to a series but standalone if you don’t want to read more, some of these stories ended with a cliffhanger which I didn’t like as I’m left completely hanging if I don’t want to continue the follow-up book, which is my fault as I should have picked up on that when I read the blurb for the anthology.

Taylor J Gray’s story Little Tree was one of my favourite reads and I look forward to reading more in this series.

Some of these stories took me out of my comfort zone (which I was expecting) and some were very dark, some not as dark, some surprised me and some kept me wanting more. Overall if you enjoy Dark MM tales you should check out this anthology.

Blog Tour, Review, Excerpt & Giveaway: Pier Pressure By Anyta Sunday


I really enjoyed this, it was just the kind of light fun read I didn’t know I needed.

I did worry when in the first few pages Leon’s a**hole partner breaks up with him and is just awful, this scene caused me a bit of anxiety for what I might expect for the rest of the book. Luckily, this scene didn’t set the tone of the rest of the story, instead, it is full of fun and heart when Damon, a guy he had a fling with years before finds himself drawn into the out-there situations Leon keeps pulling him into in his goal to find love.

Leon was sweet, if not oblivious to the signals Damon was giving him, he also did everything he could to avoid conflict, hence how he found himself in the out-there situations. Damon may have messed up in the past, but when faced with the opportunity of getting a second chance with Leon, he grabs it with both hands, it doesn’t stop him from being cheeky with Leon, but he is also supportive and sweet towards him too. Leon and Damon were so good for each other, I wondered how long it would take Leon to realise what was in front of his eyes.

This was an entertaining read which left me with the feel-goods at the end.

Plenty of fish in the sea.

But what if there is no “plenty”? What if Leon Finn is a lone fish? A lone fish in a glass bowl swimming in hopeful but ultimately lonely circles forever?

Dumped and forced to retreat to his tiny-town seaside bach, it’s time for Leon to cast some lines, and quick! Prove to everyone—(*cough*) ex, mother, other ex who he’s now accidentally living with—that he’s a catch.

Only no one is biting.

It sucks, but it’s solvable.

With his trusty sewing machine and endless stash of fabric he’ll make himself into the ultimate suitor. Stitch this right up.

But as a certain someone keeps whispering in his ear, is this the right way?

Pier Pressure is a light-hearted, cheeky M/M romance with silly seaside shenanigans culminating in happily ever after. It can be read as a standalone.

I crouch and stare at it. “Hello.”

It wriggles its tail and swims away. A fish here means someone’s been coming regularly, to change the water and feed it. “Who’s looking after you, hmm?” My cousin Troy lives nearby, he’d be the type to buy a goldfish for his kid without asking his wife first. I can imagine him schlepping it here and regretting his stupidity every time he came by to keep it alive.

It’s stupid, but I’m ridiculously glad I’m not completely alone. Karl and I might not have had sex in six months, but he’d always shared my bed. I was used to someone being in the same room, in the same space, closest to the door. There was something comforting in it. Like, if we got murdered, they’d have to go through him first.

Wind howls around the bach, rattling the windows and whistling down the chimney. There’s the creak of a door on its hinges, and bloody hell. The bach never seemed this freaky in summer . . .

I raid my suitcase and yank on the kiddiest pyjamas I own, my fluffy ducky ones. Maybe if I look innocent enough, a murderer might think twice before offing me, giving me crucial time to—yep, that hearth shovel was coming to bed with me. And . . . and the fish. I couldn’t leave it all alone out here. The killer might . . .

Carefully, I lift the bowl, tuck it to my chest and take refuge in my room.”

I wake up to a shadow looming over me.

I scream and throw blankets into the darkened face. The shovel! Where is it? I plunge an arm down the side of my bed, between the mattress and the wall, and grope for the weapon. Nothing. And meanwhile I’m left in a frighteningly exposed, arse-up position. I forget the shovel and throw myself onto my back, hands balled at the ready.

Before me the figure is muttering something that gets lost under a thick layer of feather-down. A large hand with a vein running down the middle reaches around the duvet and with a whoosh, my cover is yanked off.

Instead of hauling arse out the window with Fishy, I’m asking the intruder to please at once remove himself from my bed chamber. Apparently, I turn into Darcy in panic—“Damon?”

Laughter. As heavy as the ocean, as warm as the dawn spilling into my room. “Well hello, Leon.”

Release Blitz, Excerpt & Giveaway & Review: Unnecessary RoughnessBy Rheland Richmond & Emerson Beckett

The Package Deal Series, Book 3

Jackson Kincaid

When my childhood best friend and I escaped a potentially miserable life in our small southern hometown to attend the University of Georgia, I thought I’d finally be able to live my life the way I’d planned. I’d go to school on a football scholarship and get my degree to become a veterinarian. But when the NFL came calling, how could I say no to millions of dollars? I’d put my plans on hold for a while, along with finding the right man for me.

But life doesn’t always go as we plan.

When Allison was killed in a car accident, I suddenly became the only parent to my ten-year-old godson. How would I play football for the Portland Pirates and be a full-time single dad?

I’d have to adjust. And thanks to my friends, and the badass team doctor, we’d heal and make it through. Did I mention he’s my best friend and that I can’t stop thinking dirty thoughts about him naked?

Unfortunately, keeping our relationship a secret is not the only obstacle we’ll face.

Simon Taylor

My training as a Navy doctor prepared me to assess injuries on the fly and deal with all kinds of situations. Emotions and feelings had no place in medicine during an emergency. Determine the problem and fix it. Or find someone who could. As my new friends liked to call me, I was the badass team doctor.

I wasn’t prepared for the passionate feelings I didn’t know I had for Jackson to surface while helping him deal with losing his friend and taking custody of her son. But feelings and emotions were what I had for both of them.

But life has a way of unfolding the way it’s supposed to. I’m a believer in things happen for a reason. It doesn’t matter that our relationship might be forbidden. I want to get sweaty and naked with him.

Jackson and I deserve to be together no matter how rough things get. I just had to convince him of that.

Unnecessary Roughness is the friends-to-lovers story in the third book of the Package Deal Series.

I really loved Unnecessary Roughness, both the story and the characters had so much heart and I couldn’t put it down because I was so caught up in Jackson, Simon and Parker’s story that I had to know how it all played out.

My heart broke for poor Parker, losing his mum the way he did and being so scared about what would happen to him. He was so lucky to have Jackson as his new parent and Simon was a huge added bonus for both Parker and Jackson. Simon was such a wonderful friend and support and I so enjoyed seeing his relationship with Jackosn change from friendship to lovers to true partners in every sense. These three make the best family and the way Parker was so accepting of the love Jackson and Simon had for him and that he loved them back just as easily was so sweet.

Jackson had the best friends and teammates and I can’t wait to go back and read their stories in the first two books. I also can’t wait for the next book.


When I was twelve, I discovered some things that would ultimately change my life forever.

Growing up on a farm in rural eastern Alabama, I learned about life and how things worked. Even though I loved looking after our three horses, sheep, and the goats we raised on our dairy farm, it was a hard life, and I wanted out. I wanted more from life than being a dairy farmer in nowhere Alabama.

The only problem was my parents had a completely different plan for my life. And it was their way or the highway, as the expression goes. They wanted me to stay in my very strict, sheltered world, get married to a nice girl, and raise a family on the farm.

All that made me want to do was run as far and fast as I could.

I wanted to see the world and be free to make my own choices for my life. I figured out the only way to make that happen was to go to college and become someone that wasn’t the son of Joseph and Helen Kincaid, the dairy farmers from Eastover, Alabama.

There was no way they’d agree to pay for it, so I had to find a way. I also knew that once I left, there was no going back. It should have terrified me. Everything I knew was there. But there was no fear because I wasn’t going alone. My best friend was leaving with me. Just like me, she wanted more from her life too. And she knew there was no finding it in Eastover.

Meeting my best friend, Allison Marie Finley was the best thing to ever happen to me.

We were two peas in a pod. We’d known each other through elementary school but didn’t become best friends until the sixth grade when we were paired up in class to do a research project. She was the person I could tell anything to and knew it wouldn’t get out. Allison was the only person I’d ever told I might like boys a little more than girls. And she knew I’d never be able to find out who I was if I stayed home.

So when we started high school, we devised a plan to get out. I found football to pay my way through college, and she went the academic route to get scholarships to pay for hers. The second we graduated, we left home without the blessing of either of our parents to attend the University of Georgia and never looked back.
