Hidden Needs

by Havan Fellows

Publisher:  Appleton Publishing Avenue

Cover Artist:  Allison Cassatta

The Blurb…

Archer Hehnier is a hard-core businessman through and through. He’s not afraid to make the merciless decisions, to put in the long hours, to lose himself in his work for the greater good of his company and his clients…even if it means losing a piece of himself in the process. But when does a man with a mind always turning at two hundred rotations per second get his personal needs met?

Dalton is an uncompromising businessman, who could, no doubt, go toe-to-toe with Archer in the boardroom—but that’s not the room Dalton wants to tackle Archer in.

With a little help from his friends at the premier BDSM club, The Sanctuary, Dalton hopes to fulfill every one of Archer’s hidden needs.

**Previously released as part of the Don’t Read in the Closet V.II M/M Romance Collection in 2011. Since then it has been reworked and edited for your reading enjoyment.

Excerpt…

I watched him walk in exactly at seven. You could set your watch by him. I knew his routine—bar for a double scotch neat then a corner table for two, but only he would occupy it. As usual on Thursdays, he ordered the fisherman’s catch: salmon, a spring salad with strawberries, and steamed baby veggies. The only starch he allowed to pass between those thin sharp lips tonight was a well-buttered roll, no potatoes for my man, and no alcohol with dinner either. He favored water with fresh squeezed lime and was very adamant with the server about the simple fact lemon was not a substitution.

Even at this late hour and having put in a full day of numbers, his attire was never mussed—Armani was safe on his capable body. I couldn’t wait for him to roll in here Friday. It was my favorite day to see him. He broke away from his favored charcoals and wore color. The third Friday of the month…hmm…oh yes, green. Love him in his deep green suit with the lighter shade silk shirt and tie.

I always found it amusing how everyone maneuvered around his table, purposely walking on the other side of tables out of their way. My man had an aura about him, sort of a “back the fuck off before I eradicate you with just my thoughts” type of thing going on. Of course he wouldn’t curse. Foul language was beneath someone who could make a grown man cry with just a cock of the eyebrow.

Yes…Archer Hehnier was a badass in constant control of his surroundings. All of them. From the strangers that walked in and out of his life to the paid help at his overpriced house. I even suspected that he had a way of turning all the traffic lights green on his drive home, but hadn’t been able to test that theory yet.

So why did I eat at this same restaurant practically every night and memorize his routine? Simple, he had something I wanted, and I had something he needed. And I do believe that green Friday would be the day I explain this to him. That should be interesting.

The blurb…

Nate Bard is at his wit’s end. There’s something living—or not living, as the case may be—in his house, and if he ever wants to sleep again, it needs to go. Ever the skeptic, Nate balks at his sister’s suggestion of bringing in a psychic, but after another sleepless night, he’s desperate.
Enter Isaac Lane, the hot psychic who immediately senses both the ghost and the homeowner’s doubts.
Within minutes of Isaac’s arrival, weird things start happening. Though Nate hasn’t had a clue what’s been making this ghost so restless, now it seems the ghost is bent on getting the two men together. And neither Nate nor Isaac is able—or willing—to resist.

So what did Mishyjo think? 

Ever since Nate’s boyfriend moved out, strange things have been happening in his house.  He is finally convinced to call in a psychic.  Enter Isaac.  Suddenly the sexual attraction between the two is overwhelming.  Though Nate is highly skeptical of psychics and Isaac wishes to remain the consummate professional, the aphrodisiac effect being caused by the ghost is overwhelming.

At only 31 pages the story was a bit rushed but it worked well.  It was a interesting take on the lonely ghost theme.  Both MCs were likable and believable.  I would like to have seen more of them together as a couple without the ghost’s supernatural sexual energy.  I would also like to have seen what happened with the ghost once he brought the two men together.

3.5 stars

Blog Tour with Giveaway, Excerpt and Review: Being Sawyer Knight by Nicola Haken

Being Sawyer Knight1400x2100

Synopsis

As lead singer and guitarist of the internationally renowned Souls of the Knight, Sawyer Knight is living a life most men can only dream of. He’s surrounded by music, fame, wealth, women throwing themselves at his feet. He has everything…

Yet he has nothing.

Life as one of the world’s most sought after rock stars is tiring, oppressive and lonely. He spends every day being who the world wants him to be, who his manager tells him to be, who his mother expects him to be… all the while fighting against who he really is. Truth is, he’s used to it. He’s actually gotten pretty good at pretending… at living the lie.

Until Jake Reed, his ex-best friend and the only person who’s ever made him ‘feel’, waltzes back into his life as the band’s new head of security. Jake wants Sawyer – always has, always will. Now, he just needs to get Sawyer to admit that he feels the same…

“You will be mine, Sawyer Knight. The faster you try to run the quicker you’ll fall to your knees. Then, Sawyer… then you’ll be too weak to resist.”

Review

“I need to talk to you,” was how I greeted Sawyer when he opened the door to his dressing room. We had an hour to wait before the stylists and makeup artists were available to prepare the guys for the shoot, so they were all chilling back in their respective dressing suites.

“Um,’kay,” he said nervously, backing into the room. I followed him inside and then turned back to the door, locking it behind me. That move caused his Adam’s apple to bulge as he swallowed nervously. “W-what’s up?”

“You looked beautiful on that stage,” I said, advancing towards him. Instinctively he backed away, but I kept moving forward until he was pressed against the wall. “My dick was so hard for you, Sawyer. It’s been hard for you since I got here.”

I flattened my palm against his heaving chest and his own hand quickly reached up to move it away, but instead it lingered, his fingers curling around my own.

“Please, Jake. You’re messing with my head. I can’t take it much longer. You were my best friend and I’ve missed that. Please don’t fuck that up.”

“But I don’t want to be your friend, Sawyer. I want to be your everything.”

“You can’t be serious. You don’t even know me anymore.” His voice was faltering. I was winning.

“I do know you. I know you better than anyone. I know you better than you know yourself. If I didn’t, how would I know that you want me to do this?” I breathed, sliding my hand down his chest until it reached the waistband of his jeans. He swallowed forcefully and then opened his mouth, to protest I assumed, but when my hand dipped inside and took hold of his cock, all that came out was a moan.

The risk I was taking was either going to be a monumental breakthrough, or the biggest mistake of my life.

Excerpt

On the plus side, this story has a number of things going for it

1. There are two gorgeous men
2. It combines a rock star and his bodyguard
3. Fear drives them apart but best friends are reunited – I love second chances!
4. Sexiness and the joys of learning about gay sex – oh yes!
5. Lots of love, patience and moments of tenderness
6. A bit of drama

Sawyer and Jake are best friends in high school but Jake’s family are relocated to Australia. Afraid he will never have a chance to see Sawyer again, Jake takes the plunge and kisses his friend. That is the last time they see each other until the story starts.

Skip ahead a lot of years and Sawyer now heads up a hugely successful band but all is not smooth sailing. His life isn’t his own to lead, he has hidden his sexuality from everyone (including himself) and is receiving death threats. Enter Jake, now a security expert who takes over Sawyer’s protection.

“Sawyer Knight has always deserved the best, and if he won’t let me take care of his heart, I will at least make sure I protect his life.”

Told in alternating first person point of view, this is the story of Jake (just a little bit stalkerish at the beginning?) trying to win his man and Sawyer, trying to fight his feelings and the impact that coming out will have on his life.

The downside to the story, if there is to be one, is the slightly stereotypical feel with the gay rock star worried about impact on his career if he comes out, compounded by religious and homophobic people, together with some typical secondary characters (understanding best friend and slutty musicians).

But I enjoyed the story and found it a great way to while away the hours during my travels this week. All the downtime in airports and on aeroplanes meant lots of time to read! My only issue was trying to slant the Kindle away from my seat companion so they couldn’t see the intense sex scenes! I got lost in story, willing Sawyer to get the balls to come out and crossing my fingers these guys would get their happy ending (guess what? they did!)

This is the perfect book if you like rockers and second chances and public coming out!
