The blurb:

“Simon is jaded. His bookstore is failing, his personal life is nonexistent, and he’s tired of the local scene. He’s desperate for a change, and hopes to find it at Escape, the hot new BDSM club in town.

What he finds there is Gavin. One look at the sexy submissive is all he needs to know that his trip to Escape was the right decision. And their night of no-holds-barred kinky sex feels like only the beginning . . . until his promising new sub vanishes with the dawn.

Then Gavin walks through the door of Simon’s bookstore—for business, not pleasure. To both of their surprise, he’s the consultant Simon hired to help save the store. As they work together, Simon realizes that he might have another shot at happiness, if only he can convince Gavin that he’s worth sticking around for.

Publisher's note: This title is a heavily revised re-issue of a prior story, Commanding Acquisitions, originally released in 2010.”

My thoughts:

The Dom Around the Corner is a very hot, short and rather sweet story about two men who desperately need each other and are afraid to give into that need because of past experiences.

The reader really only gets to see how well these two men connect together when they play. Although they do spend time together outside the dungeon or bedroom and they do get on there, the pull between them is far less obvious. Mind you, the three encounters we get to witness leave the reader in no doubt these two men belong together. While I wouldn’t have complained if we’d spend more time with Simon and Gavin in different situations, I can’t bring myself to complain about what we did get to experience with them; hot doesn’t begin to describe it.

If you’re in the mood for a well plotted hot story about two men who clearly belong together and the journey they need to take before they are able to admit that, you’ll enjoy The Dom Around the Corner. There’s some angst, but not too much and not drawn out – just the way I like it. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Gavin and Simon.

Wanking with a mate isn’t gay—as long as you keep your hands to yourself.

Jez Fielding and James MacKenzie—Big Mac to his mates—are in their second year at uni. After partying too hard last year, they make a pact to rein themselves in. While their housemates are out drinking every weekend, Jez and Mac stay in to save cash and focus on their studies.

When Jez suggests watching some porn together, he isn’t expecting Mac to agree to it. One thing leads to another, and soon their arrangement becomes hands-on rather than hands-off. But falling for your straight friend can only end badly, unless there’s a chance he might feel the same.


Afterwards, Jez blamed the alcohol for loosening his tongue, because he didn’t think about it before he spoke. The words tumbled out before he could stop them.
 “Man, I’m seriously horny now. Have you got any decent porn on that laptop?”
“Huh?” Mac snapped his head around to meet Jez’s gaze. Jez’s heart pounded erratically, but his dick was still standing to attention. “What… you mean, you want to wank in here? Now? Wouldn’t that be weird?” Mac sounded seriously freaked out.
Jez backtracked quickly, cheeks hot. “It doesn’t have to be weird. I’ve done it before with guys at school, and it’s never been a big deal. But don’t worry about it. I’ll go and watch my own stash instead. But I need something soon, ’cause I’m gonna explode after watching that sex scene.”
Jez was expecting an instant no from Mac. He wouldn’t have blamed him. A lot of guys wouldn’t be into what Jez was suggesting. Jez’s heart still thumped hard, but his arousal didn’t abate despite his anxiety. He was shocked by how much he wanted this.
Mac bit his lip and frowned. “Seriously. You’ve done that?”
Jez shrugged, trying to look nonchalant. “Yeah. Like I said, it was no big deal. Just guys messing around.”
Mac stared a moment longer, then he stood, and Jez’s heart sank as he walked away. But Mac only went to fetch his laptop from the dining table. He sat back down and then opened it and tapped in his password.
“What sort of stuff do you wanna watch?” Mac’s voice was gruff and he focused on the screen rather than Jez.
Fuck. They were really going to do this, then.

My thoughts:

What can I say? It is getting very hard to write about Jay Northcote’s books without repeating myself because she consistently gets it spot on. Helping Hand, like every previous book by her I’ve read, drew me in from the opening paragraph and kept me hooked until the very last sentence.

This is a sweet, somewhat angsty and very hot story. Mac and Jez's journey from friends via friends with benefits to more than friends was compelling and the characters themselves were vivid, realistic and relatable.

While this is a light and mostly fun read, it did provide me with food for thought. It must be very confusing when you suddenly find yourself attracted to somebody of the same gender when you’ve always considered yourself straight. I was mesmerized with Mac’s journey from denial, to enjoyment to the realisation that no matter how much he might want to blame it all on lust there was more happening between him and Jez. And I loved how Jay Northcote dealt with Jez and Mac’s confusion as to how to label themselves in the future.

“Labels can be restrictive. Sometimes you need to stop thinking about gender and sexuality and focus on the person. If you care about them, if you feel good when you’re with them, if you’re hot for them...then what does any of the rest matter?”

What does the rest matter indeed. As a fervent hater of labels in general, this quote spoke to my heart and my believes.

Once again, I highly recommend a book by Jay Northcote. Written so fluidly the book almost reads itself, Helping Hand will entertain and excite you in equal measure.

Author Bio:

Jay lives just outside Bristol in the West of England, with her husband, two children, and two cats.
She comes from a family of writers, but she always used to believe that the gene for fiction writing had passed her by. She spent years only ever writing emails, articles, or website content. One day, she decided to try and write a short story–just to see if she could–and found it rather addictive. She hasn’t stopped writing since.

SILVER SCARS by Posy Roberts


· Title: Silver Scars
· Author: Posy Roberts
· Publisher: Labyrinth Bound Press
· Genre: MM Romance, Contemporary Romance
· Length: 86,700 words
· Release Date: June 22, 2015

The blurb:

“A bomb destroyed high-powered lawyer Gil Lemieux’s seemingly perfect life, and PTSD has ruled every decision since the explosion that left him scarred inside and outside. Moving home with his mom is meant to be a temporary measure, just like proofreading for a medical editorial firm is meant to be a stopgap. But two years after taking on the wrong court case, he’s still living in fear.

Keith Kramer might be based 1,500 miles away from Gil, but their shared work brings them together—a chance meeting that’s life-changing. Gil is drawn to Keith’s good looks and intelligence, but it’s his innate understanding that Gil is more than the scars on his skin that is truly attractive. He’s everything Gil used to be and more. It blows Gil’s mind that his attraction might be returned.

Only doubt could widen the distance between them. Keith’s hopefulness, borne out of surviving some tough challenges of his own, isn’t enough to bridge the distance alone. Gil will need to believe he has as much to offer as Keith if they’re to build a life together.”

My thoughts:

“You’re my oldest friend. I couldn’t leave you to deal with this shit alone. It might’ve been what you thought you wanted, but that’s utter bullshit. You need friends. You need people to love you, especially when you shove them away.” – Frankie

If you have been following my reviews I guess this is getting kinda repetitive but...oh my gosh, wow. Silver Scars is a very special book. It touched me, took me by surprise and left me uplifted and awed.

This book was not what I expected at all, in the best possible way. I feared a book filled with angst and despair but got a story about determination and hope. I expected a stronger, basically unscarred, character to be the support for another, weaker one. I got two flawed but strong men who kept each other up and running in what may well be one of the most beautiful descriptions of give and take I’ve ever read in my life.

Silver Scars is not a traditional love story in the sense of a ‘will they / won’t they’ plot. The love between these two men is never in doubt. The big question in this romance is whether or not the two characters are able to love and trust themselves enough to allow another to love them, able to believe they’re worthy of that love. This story is about people having to reassess themselves and their lives and eventually come to the conclusion that different doesn’t mean less.

And the author gets how the recovery process works; two steps forward, one step back. She describes the frustration and helplessness someone experiences when hopes are dashed and illusions shattered so subtly and yet so well I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it came from personal experience.

Keith and Gil are going to be living in my head for a while; they made a lasting impression on me. The sort of impression where it is almost possible to forget they are fictional characters. They were real. While they are both nice and easy-going by nature, their circumstances make them angry, scared, snarky and sometimes less than kind and that’s exactly the way they needed to be. I loved their interactions both in the good times and the bad. And when the two of them get together they are very sexy. I can safely say Keith and Gil have made me look at Skype calls in a whole new light – talk about hot.

Silver Scars is a wonderful story about pain, loss, hope, silver linings, courage, and, most of all, love. I can’t recommend this book enough.

“You’re not broken. I’m not chopped to bits. We’re just two men who occasionally have the past still nipping at our heels.” – Keith

Ps. Posy, if you’re reading this; please tell me Frankie will get a happy ending of his own?

The Author:

Posy Roberts writes about romantic male love. Whether her characters are family men, drag queens, or lonely men searching for connections, they all find a home in her stories.
Posy is married to a man who makes sure she doesn’t forget to eat or sleep; her daughter, a budding author and dedicated Whovian, helps her come up with character names. When Posy’s not writing, she enjoys crafting, hiking, and singing spontaneously about the mundane, just to make normal seem more interesting.

Make Me Soar by K.C. Wells

MAKE ME SOAR by K.C. Wells
Pages:          290
Date:           June 8, 2015
Details:        no. 6 Collars & Cuffs
                   Copy received from author

The blurb:

“Anyone who frequents Collars & Cuffs knows Dorian Forrester is built for pain, including Dorian himself. But everyone has it wrong. For six years, Dorian’s chased a feeling that remains tantalizingly out of his reach. Unteachable, Dorian can take anything and everything a Dom can throw at him. Still, it’s not enough. Dorian needs… something more. Something he won’t find at Collars & Cuffs.

Dorian’s search takes him out of the safe environment he’s known for years, out of his depth, and into a realm of deep, dark trouble. 

Alan Marchant has been watching Dorian with interest for a while and knows there’s more to Dorian than his label of “pain slut” suggests. When Dorian disappears, Alan and his friend, Leo, set out to find him. But the disoriented young man discovered cowering in a hotel room is not the Dorian they know and love. That Dorian is shattered. It’s up to Alan to pick up the pieces and show Dorian there are better ways to fly.

They may be off on a new journey together, but their destination will rock them both to the core.”

My thoughts:

“He wanted something he hadn’t seen yet. He wanted Dorian to be happy.”

If there is such a thing as the ultimate love story, I may have just finished reading it. I half dreaded starting this book after I read the blurb. I had visions of Dorian broken and shattered and the long and painful journey he had ahead of him and I feared the angst I thought he’d have to go through before reaching happiness again. And while angst may no longer be a hard limit for me, it still is and will probably always be a soft one.

K.C. Wells managed to surprise me. Yes Dorian is broken and shattered after his nightmare in Berlin but this is not a story about Dorian’s demise. This is a story about the healing powers of love. This is a story about selflessness, about growth, about being open to learning new things about yourself and not running away from what you discover. This is the story about a Dom, Alan, giving his all in order to not only restore Dorian to who he used to be but help him become the man he was always supposed to be and Dorian doing the same thing for Alan in return.

This story, the developing feelings and relationship between these two men took my breath away time and again. I may have audibly sighed on several occasions while reading Make Me Soar. And no, that wasn’t necessarily during the sex scenes although I have to admit those were rather special and very hot.

This book gave me all the feels, culminating in the moment Dorian soars for the very first time, which brought tears of happiness to my eyes.

I could easily go on in this vein for much longer and give you a long list of specific examples of moments when Alan and Dorian touched my heart but I won’t. You want to experience those moments for yourself and luxuriate in the sheer beauty of them. My only warning when it comes to this book is this: make sure you’ve nothing else planned for the day you start reading Make Me Soar because once you start it is next to impossible to put the book down again.

Pages:          473
Date:           June 21, 2015 
Details:        No. 1 The Long Fall of Night
Own / Kindle

The blurb:

In a flash, everything changes.

When NYU student Asher Caine’s uncle calls to warn him something big is coming, he has no idea it will be so devastating. Not even years of training can prepare him for what he's about to face. The only plan he has is to get his sister and nephew across country to safety, whatever it takes.

The darkness is full of potential. For good or evil, only time will tell.

Elliot Davenport isn’t about to let his Chemistry lab partner leave him behind, though he’s never done a spontaneous thing in his life. Ash is mysterious, aloof, and so damned sexy, Elliot can’t get the guy out of his head. But his crush takes a backseat as the gravity of the situation becomes clear: the eastern two-thirds of the United States has gone dark.

What happens when all the rules change in a split second?

200 million people are without access to sustainable food and water, let alone coffee and the Internet. Facing the worst humanitarian crisis the western world has ever seen, the government calls the military to step in. The entire military.

The soldiers of Team Shockwave are tasked with evacuating civilians to the safety of refugee camps, and then patrolling the new border between the East and West. Shockwave are on the front lines and the fate of an entire nation rests on them.

Welcome to the long fall of night…

My thoughts:

Colour me blown away. I had high expectations, very high actually. A.J. Rose has managed to impress me with her story-telling abilities and the magical way in which she uses words to construct the most beautiful and descriptive sentences, since I first read Power Exchange. So anything less than a gripping, breathtaking, and addictive reading experience would have left me disappointed. I’m very happy to say that not only did she not disappoint me; she blew me away and left me awe-struck.

This book touched me more than other dystopian stories have so far because events as described in The Long Fall of Night are all too plausible. It’s is all too easy imagining something like this black out happening, and once that idea has entered your mind it is impossible to not start asking yourself questions; what if I found myself in this situation, what would I do, how would I survive, what do I actually know about living without all the modern conveniences? I could go on, but I’m sure you get the idea.

The Long Fall of Night is an epic tale. Not just because it is indeed epic, as in fabulous, but also because it’s grand in scale and characters. As such, The Long Fall of Night can only be described as total immersion - as complete a reading experience as you’re likely to find between two (virtual) covers. This story pushed most if not all of my buttons. There’s the mystery of what exactly is going on and who’s responsible as well as the adventure laden cross-country trip undertaken by Ash, Elliot and their mismatched group, and the military angle all combined with several developing love stories.

While you might expect a dystopian tale to be action driven – and trust me, this book is not short on tension, action and danger – this is first and foremost a character driven story. For me the way the characters dealt – or didn’t deal – with the situation they found themselves in was far more intriguing than the actual danger they faced. Every single character described in this story felt real and recognisable. I love that they all had their flaws and their strengths; that they grew and learned things about themselves and each other they had never known or suspected.

I can’t wait to see where this story will be going next. The possibilities are almost endless and I can see myself playing guessing games between now and the autumn release of The Dark Before Dawn.

Details:        No. 1 Morning Report
Copy received from Author

The blurb:

“A decade on from their first kiss, Luke Murray is more in love with Simon every day. Running the Lost Cow ranch for Luke's parents, they keep their heads down and get along with the locals, even if Luke is known for being a hothead. Then one day they discover the local store owners refuse to serve them. They're bewildered until Luke's mom tells them the new pastor has targeted the couple in his sermons. Suddenly Luke and Simon find themselves alienated from people they called friends, and their ranch comes under a series of attacks. As the town's hatred and homophobia turns on them, Luke and Simon will face a critical choice: give in to the town's demands and disappear, or stand and fight for themselves and their love.”

My thoughts:

Yes, I know, I’m reading this series the wrong way around. I started with the fourth Morning Report title, Letters from a Cowboy, and loved it so much I had no hesitation saying yes when Sue Brown offered me the opportunity to read the book that started it all: Morning Report. I was not disappointed.

Morning Report is slightly different from most romances we read. This is not a story about two men coming together but rather a look at what happens to Luke and Simon when their decade long relationship suddenly comes up against adversity in the form of homophobia from the people who have known Luke all his life and had been accepting of the couple for years.

Luke and Simon are one of the cutest couples ever. Despite their years together they’re as in love as ever, can’t keep their hands (and other body parts) off each other and basically behave like love-struck teenagers. If I ever met them face to face I might well join forces with Luke’s sister and make fun of their need for each other.

All joking aside, this book touched my heart for quite a few reasons and on numerous occasions. It also deals with something we rarely acknowledge; relationships tend to be easy as long as life just moves along at a steady pace without any big surprises. We don’t find out what our relationship (or our partner) is made off until we are forced to face a big and possibly traumatic situation together. Some relationships crumble; others, like Luke and Simon’s, have to be reassessed but thrive in the long run.

I loved the setting and all the secondary characters in this book. In fact, the situation that touched my heart most and had me on the edge of my seat as I read on with fear in my heart, dealt with somebody close to our heroes. I kept on whispering please don’t, please don’t under my breath. Whether or not I got my wish and what exactly the situation was I won’t diverge here though. Read the book. It’s good.

As always Sue Brown makes us think about issues while treating us to an entertaining, sexy and next to impossible to put down story. Homophobia is never easy to read about and religious intolerance makes me see red. The fact that more or less a whole town, en masse, turned against Luke and Simon just because a new pastor told them too, infuriated me. Because it is all too easy to believe this happens in everyday life to real-life people who may or may not have the support system the characters in this book had.

Before anybody thinks this book was ‘just’ a heavy read let me reassure you. I laughed as much as I frowned while reading Morning Report, tears of joy replaced sad tears once or twice and the antics between Simon and Luke had me laughing out loud more than once. And to say these two men, who can’t keep their hands off each other, were hot would be an understatement. I love me a toppy bottom as much as a top happy to indulge him. And I can’t help feeling most of us might be a lot happier if we too introduced ‘morning reports’ into our lives.

Details: No. 2 Takeover
            Copy received through NetGalley

The blurb:

Justin White may not look like an up and coming corporate superstar, but his new boss knows he has the smarts, grit, and determination to succeed. Now he just has to convince his company’s CFO, Eli Ovadia. Unfortunately, Justin can’t seem to keep his cool around the domineering Eli—and soon he finds himself taking their heat from the boardroom into the bedroom….

Still haunted by a tragic accident that left him with a wounded leg and broken heart, Eli has a need to be in control. But his desire for Justin makes him want to lose that control—and push them both far beyond their limits. But will his need to dominate Justin drive him away—or will Eli find a way to be the man he needs for both of them?

My thoughts:

I appear to find myself in the middle of a fabulous reading streak. Every single book I’ve picked up recently has been outstanding and very special. Just Business is no exception – quite the opposite in fact. Just Business gave me everything I could possibly ask for in a story, and then some. When I saw this book came with a recommendation on GoodReads from L.A. Witt I had a feeling I was about to start reading something special, but I had no idea how very special the experience would turn out to be.

Justin and Eli *sighs*. Two men with pasts they would rather forget and memories they can’t stop from affecting their present. The moment they set eyes on each other a power struggle commences and the push and pull between them only gets stronger when Justin starts working for the company where Eli is the CFO. But a romance between colleagues is never a good idea. While Justin yearns to submit to Eli, the idea scares him as much as it excites him and Eli doesn’t do relationships – after all, he’s a despicable monster in his own eyes.

When Eli and Justin do come together it is a thing of beauty. They fit together as if they’d been created for each other. But Eli reminds Justin too much of the man who nearly destroyed him in the past, and when the flashback gets too powerful, Justin is gone.

I lost myself in this book. I fell for Justin as soon as he was introduced but Eli...Eli took my heart and played games with it. His inner torment, his love for Justin and his selflessness were both excruciating and a thing of beauty, especially because he can’t see himself as anything but a monster.

As anybody who follows my reviews knows, I don’t usually do well with angsty reads – and boy is this book angsty. And I didn’t help myself at all when I had to go out exactly when I reached the angst-summit. I did my shopping worrying about Eli and Justin, wondering how they were going to fix everything that needed to be fixed. I only mention this because it is very unusual for me to live in the stories I’m in the middle of reading while I’m away from the book.

The angst in this book worked for me because both men had good reasons for the struggles they were facing and because the balance between angst and togetherness was just about right (for me). I loved that I had no reason to doubt that these two men belonged together long before Eli and Justin came to the same conclusion, even while I worried about how it would all play out. It didn’t make me flinch any less when it all went wrong, but it gave me the courage necessary to continue until I reach their happy-ever-after.

Just Business is also an incredibly hot book. Eli and Justin are beautiful together. The BDSM scenes they share are as intense and exciting as their love making is. And I'll never look at a walking cane in quite the same way again after this book. The sex scenes in this book tell the reader as much about who Eli and Justin are as the rest of the story does. I loved how it was not ‘just’ about dominating and submitting – in those scenes as in the rest of the story it becomes perfectly clear there’s a lot more to these two men than what appears on the surface or even than they are giving themselves credit for.

This is the second Takeover title and I haven’t read the first one yet. I can’t say that was an issue at all. While it is quite possible somebody who has already read the first title will get more out of this book than I did, I can’t say I ever felt as if I missed out on anything. Having said that, I do now feel the need to read Takeover in the not too distant future. If Just Business sets the standard, I’ll be in for another treat.

Shattered by Bethany-Kris: Cover Reveal, Blurb and Excerpt

Shattered, The Russian Guns Book Five by Bethany-Kris
Audience: Adult 18+, New Adult
Genre: Contemporary w/ Suspense Elements, Organized Crime
Cover by: Jay Aheer
ISBN: 978-0-9937797-6-3
Expected Publication: July 2nd, 2015


“Don’t fall in love with me. I ruin beautiful things.”

Love made him this way, but life makes him stay.

Life doesn’t give a redo. There’s no rewind or pause button to take you back or stop time. Once something happens, it happened. The most tragic of those times in his life, the ones he wouldn’t get back and the moments he could never fix, reminded DemyanAvdonin of a bullet meeting glass.

The impact of the bullet doesn't break the glass into pieces, but instead, leaves behind a single hole surrounded by a spider web of cracks. Fragile cracks that, when handled with the utmost care, would splinter into shards of what used to be.

Demyan thought he had been broken beyond repair once, four long years ago.

He was wrong.

She touched the glass, unknowing of the cracks holding him together. These are the broken pieces of a shattered man and the woman who made him live.

Life made him this way, but love makes him stay.

Book Links:


Something was happening to him, and it was because of her. He was letting it happen because he liked the way she got under his skin, made him think, and forced him to feel. Even if it wasn’t always fucking pretty.
Demyan wasn’t sure how he felt about that other than the fact he didn’t want to think about it at all. Hooking up was one thing, but acting cozy was completely different and not what he should want.
“Don’t,” he forced out.
Demyan turned on his heel, a hand flying up in the air to stop her from saying another thing. He made a swift beeline for the front door, grabbing his jacket off the back of the couch where he tossed it the night before.
At the front door, he tugged on his coat before yanking on his shoes.
“Demyan, please just wait a second,” Claire pleaded. “Please!”
Her cry sliced him straight down to the fucking bone. Like it ached in his heart because he was the one making her hurt. She was just feet away from him. Christ, he could reach out and touch her, soothe her if he wanted, but he couldn’t.
“Don’t do that,” Demyan said sharply, standing straight and trying to force back the rising anxiety and anger.
Claire snapped away from him as if he’d stuck out at her with his hand. “Do what?”
“I don’t understand wh—”
Demyan waved at her. “That right there. This can’t be something. We can’t be something. Don’t do that.”
“Demyan, you’re freaking out over nothing.”
No, he wasn’t.
There were tears in her eyes. They weren’t falling, but they were there. She was hurt by his rejection, and he didn’t know how to handle what was going on inside his head and heart. So, it was pretty goddamn simple for Demyan. He needed to stop whatever this was before it went any further. Straight for the kill, like any good monster would do.
“Don’t fall in love with me. I ruin beautiful things.”
Claire flinched. “Why would you say that?”
“You can’t fall in love with someone like me and you certainly can’t afford to believe there’s something here or that you can make me better again. I am broken—unobtainable and unfixable. I don’t need a fucking martyr in my life. I’ve got enough of those as it is.”
“Just … don’t.”
“Fall in love with you.”
“Exactly,” Demyan muttered.
“Why would you say that?” she repeated.
Wasn’t it obvious?
“Why would you tell me not to fall in love with you and then in the next sentence, call me beautiful?”
Because she was.
