Wings of Love (Love, #1)Wings of Love by Scotty Cade

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Blurb…

Devastated after losing his partner of fifteen years to cancer, Dr. Bradford Mitchell tries to escape the emptiness and loss by leaving his life in Seattle behind. Traveling to the Alaskan mountains where he and Jeff often vacationed, Brad reconnects with Mac Cleary, the ruggedly handsome and very straight floatplane pilot who had flown them to Hyline Lake many times in the past. Brad and Mac form an unlikely friendship and buy an old log cabin together, and as he and Mac begin to bring the old cabin back to life, Mac watches Brad come back to life as well, stirring emotions in him he’s never felt for a man before.

When fear, confusion, and a near tragedy threaten to force the two men apart, they’ll face some tough questions. Can Brad let go of Jeff and the guilt he feels about beginning to care for another man? And can Mac deal with his fears of being gay and accept the fact that he is in love with Brad? It will be a struggle for both men to keep their heads and hearts intact while exploring what life has to offer.

So what did I think?

I really enjoyed this book, just what I was in the mood for – fabulous characters, lots of love and a bit of drama thrown in!

Brad is devastated after losing his partner of fifteen years to cancer. He runs to the place where he and Jeff had spent many a wonderful holiday. The location is an isolated cabin in the Alaskan wilderness, a few miles from the lodge where they used to stay.

Mac runs his own business, flying guests to the remote lodge in his floatplane. He knew Brad and Jeff casually and understands what Brad is going through as he lost his own wife to cancer years before.

This gay-for-you/out-for-you story is filled with the emotional turmoil. Mac has totally unexpected feelings for Brad which Brad reciprocates but he is still getting over his loss.

The grief was handled beautifully, along with the guilt and worry felt by Brad as he started to acknowledge Mac in his life. Mac’s response to his own feelings was also well done. I liked that both men were so open with their communication and talked about their feelings – the story didn’t rely on mis-communication or lack of communication to add tension.

There are heaps of amusing lines “Well, duh. No-one needs to see a tiara on your head to figure out you’re gay.” as the men banter and tease each other. Their relationship is built on much more than sexual attraction.

The secondary characters were great, especially Mac’s daughter who briefly appears with just the right attitude. Brother-in-law Jack is an asshole which made reading his story in book two Treasure of Love very interesting!

Sometimes I thought Mac and Brad were just too nice (and I thought they overused each others names in conversation which didn’t feel entirely natural) but I was just in the mood for this level of niceness. Plus I liked that the characters were older.

And finally I loved the drama at the end as I have a big thing for heroics! I ended the story with a happy smile on my face.

Fatal Shadows

Fatal Shadows

Written by Josh Lanyon

Narrated by Chris Patton

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Blurb…

Someone’s out to get Los Angeles bookseller Adrien English. His best friend has been viciously murdered, now he’s getting weird phone calls and sinister gifts from a mysterious “admirer”. The cops think he’s trying to divert suspicion from himself—with the exception of sexy and homophobic homicide detective Jake Riordan.

Is Riordan really such a great detective—or does he have a few secrets of his own? Is his offer to help Adrien on the level or is he out to nail his favorite suspect—to the wall?

So what did I think?

It took me a while but I finally ‘read’ my first Adrien English mystery! I’m not sure why I waited so long particularly with all the rave reviews about the series. And really, being Josh Lanyon, it was always going to be a hit!

I say I ‘read’ the book because I actually listened to the audio version from Audible. I do own the Kindle version but when I saw that Audible had the first three books for only $1.99 each I could not resist. It was one of the best decisions I have made – I was totally prepared to Whispersync back to the written version but found I LOVED the audio version.

The story is narrated by Chris Patton who did an absolutely fabulous job. Yes, he had a wonderful, quality story to work with but he so totally did justice to the book! His voice and style seemed to match the story and he lent a perfect voice to Adrien. His strength is his ability to perfectly capture the emotion of the story and I loved the way his inflections and tone replicated what was happening. For example, if he narrated the words “he grumbled” then the dialogue was actually grumbled. Dectective Riordan had a deeper, sexy voice and even the women were well done – Lisa, Adrien’s mother being voiced fabulously!

I really enjoyed the whole story and the mystery. I liked the descriptive style of the story and loved Adrien. Maybe a touch more romance wouldn’t have gone astray but with another four books to go in the series, I am sure it will get there!

Northern Light by E.J. Russell

To be released on 30th September…

Northern LightNorthern Light by E.J. Russell

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Blurb…

Nothing gives art fraud investigator Luke Morganstern a bigger rush than busting forgers, the low-life criminals who dare victimize true artists. But when his latest job sends him to a remote cabin in the Oregon Coast Range, he’s stunned to discover the alleged forger is his former lover, Stefan Cobbe, the most gifted painter Luke has ever known.

Stefan, left homeless and destitute after the death of his wealthy partner, doesn’t exactly deny the forgery — he claims he doesn’t remember, an excuse Luke can’t accept.

But Luke’s elderly client suggests Stefan may be telling the truth and presents another possibility – a dark presence in the woods, a supernatural fury simmering for decades. Luke must face down his fear of the uncanny – and admit his feelings for Stefan – if either of them is to survive.

So what did I think?

This short book was a nice blend of romance with a ghostly element. It was a nice way to spend an hour tonight when I knew I didn’t have time to do a lot of reading.

For it’s length the story packs in quite a bit. It’s a story about art forgeries, about lost love, second chances and about ghosts.

The tales starts with Luke on the trail of an art forger who turns out to be the man he loved and left many years ago. Of course Luke still has feelings for Stefan which Stefan returns.

I liked the style of the storytelling and how Luke and Stefan respond to one another, their history colouring their reactions. There was a bit of mystery and some drama. I must admit that I do not usually read too many stories about ghosts but I like the way this one was done. I think the ghostly elements blended really nicely with the focus on Luke and Stefan’s rekindled love – a good balance which suited me fine.

The only downfall for this story was the length. There was so much packed into it, that it just skimmed on the surface of many things. There was opportunity to provide so much more background into Luke and Stefan’s past together but also their lives apart – the tragedy that befell Stefan and the accident that maimed Luke. I would have even enjoyed seeing more about the relationship between Edward and Arcoletti.

All-in-all, a nice way to spend an hour.

Thank you to the publisher for providing a copy of this book in return for my honest review.

The Blurb…

“Daddy” is not a title Rue Murray wanted, but he never thought he’d have sex with a woman either. Now he’s the unwitting father of a newborn named Alice. Between bartending and cosmetology school, Rue doesn’t have time for babies, but he can’t give her up. What Rue needs is a babysitter, and he’s running out of options. He’s on the verge of quitting school to watch Alice himself when he remembers his reclusive new neighbor, Erik. Erik Van Nuys is a sci-fi novelist with anxiety issues to spare. He doesn’t like people in general, and he likes babies even less. Still, with his royalties dwindling, he could use the extra cash. Reluctantly, he takes on the role of manny-and even more reluctantly, he finds himself falling for Alice and her flamboyant father. Rue and Erik are as different as two people can be, and Alice is the unlikeliest of babies, but Rue has never been happier than when Alice and Erik are by his side. At least, not until he receives an offer that puts all his dreams within reach and he’s forced to choose: the future he’s always wanted, or the family he thought he never did.

So what did I think?

I enjoyed immersing myself in this story. I liked both Rue and Erik and their relationship was quite unique. It was interesting to watch their changing perceptions of each other and of course see them both bond with baby Alice.

I loved some of the lines as they acknowledged their feelings…
“It was as if he’d woken me up after years of living as half a person. I’d never even realized what I’d been missing, but when I kissed him it ws like everything came together, and for the first time in my life I saw the whole picture instead of just the pieces.” Erik about Rue.
“He’d somehow manged to seep into my cracks and fill all the odd, empty spots in my heart.” Rue about Erik.

The story blended interesting and seemingly opposite characters with Rue being the party boy and Erik being the reclusive author. The secondary characters were great. Lots of humour but a situation of bringing a child into the world was handled really well. It was lovely to see all the people who wanted the best for the baby.

I particularly liked Erik’s thoughts about his own feelings for Rue. “I didn’t even really know if I was gay. I suppose society would assign me that label. I was in love with a man, and he made me hot and hard, his kisses made me shiver, and there’d never been anything more perfect than the feel of his body inside mine. So maybe is was the right word. But I honestly didn’t think my attraction to Rue had anything to do with his gender. I didn’t love Rue for what he did or didn’t have. I loved him because he was Rue. Nothing else mattered.”

It as a cute little touch having Erik rewrite his book to include a romance between his male characters due to the increasing popularity of m/m romance – guaranteed to make it a best-seller!

Stories covered in this review are:

  1. Repair My Heart by Zeoanne
  2. Guarding Lucas by Mitchell E. Sanford

Repair My HeartRepair My Heart by Zeoanne

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The Blurb…

Chad is a mechanic, a lonely man forced to hide his sexuality from the intolerant people in his town. Takoda is a satellite repairman still troubled by a past abusive relationship. When Chad called to get his satellite fixed, he never expected someone as beautiful as Takoda to show up. Can Chad fix Takoda’s broken heart? Can Takoda repair more than just Chad’s satellite?

So what did I think?

This was a super short but nice story.

Although it was a short story, it felt a little rushed, trying to get too much into a short space. The issues were only touched on and the story just skimmed the surface of the relationship. However the characters were really likable and I was so pleased to see them get their happy ending.

The ending did feel a little like the neat summary from a children’s fairy tale (view spoiler)

So 3 stars for this quick and sweet read and well done to Zeoanne for her first published story!

Guarding LucasGuarding Lucas by Mitchell E. Sanford

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

The photo prompt…

When I see this picture, I think of somebody wanting to be loved more than anything. He’s never received the love he seeks, not truly. Other than the angel that guides him. This angel has been there his entire life, watching and guarding against the things that will harm his destiny. When the day finally comes that he loses his ability to hide from his charge, he is given the chance to love.

So what did I think?

This is such a hard story to review. It’s a story that has a very emotional feel but those emotions aren’t necessarily pleasant. There are so many sad elements to this story – illness, neglect, rejection, suicide and self harm – that I found myself feeling quite down. And with all this sadness, it was almost uncomfortable to see the sexual elements play out.

I think the author did a wonderful job in creating a story that conveys sorrow and pain. However, although the ending touches on Lucas being in a better place, about to start his ‘true life’, I still felt quite unsettled at the ending – there’s a sense that happiness will come but it didn’t translate to the story ending on a positive note in terms of my own emotions. But sometimes that can be a good thing and it certainly had me pondering a number of issues.

So my advise for readers…it’s only a short story but be prepared for some serious issues to be raised. This is not your traditional romance so don’t expect hearts and flowers.

Ass Over TeacupAss Over Teacup by Jackie Nacht

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

The photo prompt…

My friend Ulysses has always been a bit of a klutz but he seemed to be getting his act together better recently. Burdened by that name, he’s always allowed himself to be bullied and take a back seat to everyone else. Added to that, he trips over his own feet or stutters when he meets a hot guy. This spectacular fall is just one more thing to make the poor guy think he’s doomed. He was getting ready to go on a blind date tonight and now I just had to call the paramedics instead. What’s a guy to do when he just can’t stay grounded?

So what did I think?

This was really sweet story and a nice way to spend my lunch hour today!

Ulysses is clumsy and always seems to attract bad luck “Add stepping into the pothole filled with muddy water, and Ulysses wished he could chalk it up to a bad day. However, this was pretty damn typical for him.”. He also has feelings for his room mate Luke.

As the story starts, Ulysses has a really bad day at work. Starting with a broken down car, his day goes from bad to worse. He also comes to the conclusion that he should stop pining over Luke and go on a blind date.

However, later that night his clumsiness acts as the trigger that brings him and Luke together.

Short and sweet. 3.5 stars

★★★★★ Exposed by Skylar M. Cates ★★★★★

ExposedExposed by Skylar M. Cates

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

The Blurb…

After years of running from a traumatic secret, young journalist Rafe Quintero is making his way in the world alone. Now that he’s landed a job at a Miami newspaper, he’s hungry for success. His goal? A blistering exposé on closeted PGA golfer Daniel Andrews. Rafe will stop at nothing to get the scoop—even if it means going undercover on Daniel’s private yacht.

Daniel is used to being in the spotlight, but his reputation for being cold and unfriendly hasn’t made him very popular. Still reeling from his mother’s death and his ex-boyfriend’s engagement, he hides out on his yacht to escape the press hounding his every step. His instant attraction to Rafe, his new crew member, is a problem he can’t ignore.

When Rafe and Daniel begin a steamy affair, Rafe knows it’s only a matter of time before Daniel discovers his betrayal. Now he has to choose: confess and hope Daniel can swallow his pride and forgive him, or put his ambition ahead of his heart and follow the story

So what did I think?

Rafe, the journalist out to make his name and Daniel, a closeted PGA golfer. Oh, what a great combination!

Rafe manages to secure himself a job on the yacht where Daniel is hiding out. He is determined to uncover Daniel’s deepest secrets and it looks like things might just be going his way as Daniel is instantly attracted. Unfortunately as he gets to know Daniel, Rafe starts to feel the same way and stops seeing him as the arrogant man he thought he was.

The characters were wonderful and although the plot was a little predictable, it was a great story. The title Exposed was a cute reference to both Rafe trying to get his expose on Daniel and Rafe himself being discovered.

The sex was frequent (I don’t think I’ve read a book with so much ass play!), hot and well written. However I most liked the emotional connection between the men. There were also some really humourous moments, blending with the emotion and drama.

A wonderful story. 4.5 stars!

Cast Off (Toronto Tales book #3) by K.C. Burn

The Toronto Tales series:

  • Cop Out (book # 1) – rated 4 stars
  • Cover Up (book # 2) – rated 3.5 stars
  • Cast Off (book # 3) – in this review

Cast Off (Toronto Tales, #3)Cast Off by K.C. Burn

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

The Blurb…

Thirty-five-year-old Rick Haviland is a well-respected speech pathologist, but while his friends are all settling into relationships, he refuses to give up his no-strings-attached club boy sex life. For him, relationships are dangerous; he’s got a secret to hide. When he meets Ian O’Donnell, an account manager with a local tabloid, Rick figures his personal rules for relationships should be enough to keep him safe from more than a one-night stand.

When Ian comes out of the closet, tired of anonymous hook-ups and keeping secrets from his large Catholic family, Rick is right there, and he’s just the sort of man Ian might like to get to know better.Their attraction is immediate, electric and mutual. Ian convinces Rick to break more and more of his rules, and his defenses crumble. But someone watches, someone who’d like to see this new relationship fail. When Ian’s job becomes a means to expose Rick’s secret, it could destroy both their careers and their hearts.

So what did I think?

Cast Off is the third book in the Toronto Tales series, and I still think that number one Cop Out is my favourite. Although this one is still a nice addition to the series.

The story is about characters we have met in the previous books. Ian is finally following in his brother’s foot steps and coming out. He falls for Rick but Rick is totally adverse to commitment.

The story follows Ian as he comes to terms with his sexuality and breaks the news to his family. And we see the relationship face its challenges due to Rick’s fears. But Rick finally accepts that being in love with Ian and being part of a couple is worth it.

I liked both characters but interestingly found them to appear younger than the ages given in the book. Rick particularly doesn’t behave like a 35 year old speech pathologist, he seems much younger. I am not sure why I felt that but really it doesn’t even matter.

There is a good blend of sexy moments and romantic drama with some more lighthearted parts.

Rated a 3 standalone but 3.5 stars for those enjoying the series.

★★★★★ Memorizing You by Dan Skinner ★★★★★

This is one for my favourites shelf and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

Make sure you check out the beautiful book trailer!

Memorizing YouMemorizing You by Dan Skinner

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The blurb…

Two high school boys from different walks of life: Ryan, a handsome athlete, and David, an average joe from a blue collar family, discover their desires, stealing their kisses under the cover of an old oak at night. Their love begins a secret life, hidden from their families, friends, and classmates. As their passion grows, so does the danger of their discovery. Their only hope is to create a separate world where every kiss is a treasure and every moment… memorable.

First love. Secret love. Unforgettable love.

So what did I think?

This is one of the most emotional and beautifully written books that I have read in a long while and no review I could write would do it justice. This story touched my heart in every way. Reading was a deeply moving journey that ended in heartache and tears but I wouldn’t change a minute of it.

There have been quite a few reviews written that capture the essence of this book perfectly so I am not going to say too much about the story other than emphasizing a few points.

Firstly, you MUST read this story. This is one of those books that will touch you. Yes, it is filled with pain and sorrow but it is so very worth it.

Secondly, a lot of the heartache comes from a direction you won’t expect. It is a love story that so wonderfully captures the feelings of these two special young men. The emotional connection they have is beautiful. The world of the sixties challenges their love but their biggest challenge is insurmountable.

Finally, there is no traditional happy ending. There are lifetimes of sadness but a strange sense of hopefulness that there will be at least a brief moment of happiness. So a question to the author Dan…will there be bluebirds this year? And if there are, please share!

5 Stars

★★★★★ An Inch at A Time by Heidi Belleau & Amelia C. Gormley ★★★★★

This was short but like it’s predecessor, so very hot!

The Professor’s Rule series

 

An Inch at a Time (The Professor's Rule #2)An Inch at a Time by Heidi Belleau and Amelia C. Gormley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The blurb…

James Sheridan is failing history. Luckily, his professor is a rumored pervert, and James isn’t too proud to pay for a better grade with his body. Professor Carson lives up to his reputation, but he’s not unethical enough to take sexual bribes. What he can offer is some highly unconventional tutoring . . . creative use of a ruler included.

The deal? Studying, followed by a “quiz.” Wrong answer? Spanking. Right answer? Reward. Ace the final, earn some mindblowing sex. It’s harder work than sexual bribery, but it beats the volunteer tutors at the student center.

After a few study sessions, James realizes he wants way more than a grade from Professor Carson, even if he’s not sure what that is. Carson’s a silver fox, all right, but James isn’t “bent” the way Carson is, and for him, the spankings are only supposed to be a means to an end. But the better he gets at history, the more he realizes he likes getting answers wrong just as much as getting them right.

So what did I think?

Like its predecessor, Giving an Inch, this is a seriously hot little story!

All the action in the first book took place in a department store change room – one very scorching scene as Carson, who we only meet as the man on the end of the phone, directs James to do some wicked things. James hadn’t had contact with Carson in over two years, not trusting his ability to stop himself from going too far under Carson’s dominance – he would do anything for the man.

This book takes us back to when Carson and James first met and this time the story extends over a couple of months. From James first nervous attempt at propositioning his professor, to receiving his final grade.

There is the potential for the student/professor relationship to seem inappropriate but I didn’t get this sense at all. Carson’s ‘methods’ may not be standard but he definitely provides James with the incentive he needs.“But what I will never do is alter your test scores just because you refused to submit to me, James. Nor will I improve them just because you did submit. If you earn the grade, you’ll have earned it by virtue of your own hard work and dedication. The method by which you do so will always be up to you. All I do is teach. And all this merely serves as…incentive.”

It is wonderful to see how beautifully James responds to Carson and there is a huge sexual tension that extends throughout the story.

There is also more insight given into James and his personality. Just a hint of his addiction and the things he had done to support it and perhaps why he craves what Carson gives him.

So now I am left wanting to see a number of things in book 3 – picking up immediately from this book with the continuation of James and Carson’s relationship in the lead up to their separation or a continuation of the story from book 1 Giving an Inch where Carson and James meet up again after the change room incident. Or maybe a story from James’ past or a more detailed look at Carson? But I’ll take whatever I can get……

Thanks to the publisher for providing a copy of this book in return for an honest review.

The Club Floggers Series by H.C. Brown

Vanilla Boy (Club Floggers, #1)A Dom's Revenge (Club Floggers, #2)Curious (Club Floggers, #3)Beg (Club Floggers, #4)

Wanted: Two Doms (Club Floggers, #5)Aiden's Training (Club Floggers, #6)

  • Two Doms
  • #1 Vanilla Boy – 80 pages
  • #2 A Dom’s Revenge – 22 pages
  • #3 Curious – 50 pages
  • #4 Beg – 31 pages
  • #5 Wanted: Two Doms – 23 pages
  • #6 Aiden’s Training – 30 pages
  • #7 Two Dom’s: One Pup – >50 pages

I’ve decided to review all the books in the Club Floggers series as a series rather than writing an individual review for each book. My reason for this is that I had similar feelings toward each story and they basically rated the same – 3 stars across the series. They are a collection of short stories, some a bit longer than others, with overlapping characters and set in the same club.

3 Stars

So what did I think?

I basically read these stories back to back since they were so short. Overall I enjoyed them but they were a little too short for my liking. I felt that there just wasn’t enough time to understand the characters and I really wanted to see more than just the sex, to know more about the men and what drove them and their desires. I felt it just skimmed the surface of the dominant and submissive nature.

I started the first book and had some doubts. Nash, the Dom, seemed to be a total asshole and I had no interest in seeing him win Paul over. However, as the story progressed he sort of grew on me. Throughout the series I struggled to become invested in the relationships (due to the short story length?) and so decided to just read the stories for what they were without trying to look for anything too deep or to question behaviours too much.

What I did enjoy was how many of the characters, both submissive and dominant, were from rock bands. I really like books with musicians! In fact I would have liked to have seen more of the rock star world beyond the bedroom or confines of Club Floggers.

These are stories definitely suited to someone who is looking for a quick read and to just dip a toe into a world of BDSM.

Now here’s the part I wasn’t too sure whether to include or not – the mention of price/value for money (which I don’t usually get into). But I have decided to mention it as I know some people buy books on my recommendation and I think should be fully informed. I got the first book free from ARE – which is fabulous so thanks to the publisher and the author! – and then bought the rest of the series. I am one of those readers with a compulsion to complete a series no matter what! All up, including the free book, I spent $12.94 on the books. They were priced at $1.99 and $2.99 each, and although the website had the word count for each story I didn’t pay it too much attention. So although I enjoyed reading the books, I don’t think the price for a 20/30 page book is good value. But I guess you can make up your own mind!
