Brady Garrett is back in space, this time as an unwilling member of a team of humans seeking to study the alien Faceless and their technology. It’s not the first time Brady’s life has been in the hands of the Faceless leader Kai-Ren, and if there’s one thing Brady hates it’s being reminded exactly how powerless he is. Although dealing with the enigmatic Faceless might actually be easier than trying to figure out where he stands with the other humans on board, particularly when one of them is his boyfriend’s ex. 

Cameron Rushton loved the starlight once, but being back on board the Faceless ship forces him to confront the memories of the time he was captured by Kai-Ren, and exactly how much of what was done to him that he can no longer rationalize away. Cam is used to being Brady’s rock, but this time it might be him who needs Brady’s support. 

This time Brady is surrounded by the people he loves most in the universe, but that only means their lives are in danger too. And when Kai-Ren’s fascination with humanity threatens the foundations of Faceless society, Brady and Cam and the rest of the team find themselves thrust into a battle that humans have very little hope of winning, let alone surviving. 

*Starlight can be read as a standalone but probably words better with knowledge of the first two books in the series.

Levi Black is at a crossroads. After suffering a loss and breaking up a long-term relationship, he’s looking for a change. When he receives the news he’s inherited a house in York, he seizes the opportunity to begin a new chapter in his life.

However, when he gets there, he finds a house that has never kept its occupants for very long. Either through death or disinclination, no one stays there, and after a few days of living in the place, Levi can understand why. Strange noises can be heard at all hours of the day and night, and disturbing and scary things begin to happen to him. He never believed in ghosts before, but when events take a sinister turn, he knows he must look for help. He finds it in the unlikely form of the blue-haired leader of a ghost tour.

Blue Billings is edgy, beautiful, and lost. Utterly lost. He conceals so many secrets that some days it’s a miracle he remembers his own name. He knows that he should ignore Levi because he threatens the tenuous grip Blue has on survival. But there’s something about the kind-eyed man that draws Blue to him. Something that demands he stay and fight for him when he would normally run in the opposite direction.

As the two men investigate the shocking truth behind Levi’s house, they also discover a deep connection that defies the short length of time they’ve known each other. But when events escalate and his life is on the line, Levi has to wonder if it was wise to trust the Mysterious and Amazing Blue Billings.

Soren: 

You know what’s not fun? Going on a Fiji vacation with four other couples. Especially when recently single. 

What’s even worse is when a past hook-up arrives unannounced. 

Not only do we have a history, but he’s ten years younger and a famous rock star. Most importantly, he’s my friend’s little brother. 

Being trapped on an island with Jet Jackson is going to be sweet torture because all I want is another chance. I just don’t think he’s going to give it to me. 

Jet: 

You know what’s not fun? Escaping one guy who broke my heart only to run into another. 

Being on the road for three years has left me exhausted. The last thing I want is for Caleb ‘Soren’ Sorensen to try for round two. 

I can’t fight my draw to him. I’ve never been able to. 

I’m suddenly back to being the naïve kid who stupidly lusted after a hockey player. 

All I can think is if I let Soren get close, I’ll walk away from this vacation with a double broken heart.

All Robbie Fontaine ever wanted was a place to belong. After the death of his mother, he bounces around from pack to pack, forming temporary bonds to keep from turning feral. It’s enough—until he receives a summons from the wolf stronghold in Caswell, Maine.

Life as the trusted second to Michelle Hughes—the Alpha of all—and the cherished friend of a gentle old witch teaches Robbie what it means to be pack, to have a home.

But when a mission from Michelle sends Robbie into the field, he finds himself questioning where he belongs and everything he’s been told. Whispers of traitorous wolves and wild magic abound—but who are the traitors and who the betrayed?

More than anything, Robbie hungers for answers, because one of those alleged traitors is Kelly Bennett—the wolf who may be his mate.

The truth has a way of coming out. And when it does, everything will shatter

I started this book completely confused. I didn’t know up from down and I had nu clue what the freck was going on !!!

Now, I did re-read Wolfsong and Ravensong right before I started this one (you should do it too) so that was not the reason for my confusion. You will get me when you start this one…I can only say, hang in there…things will clear up !! 

I can honestly say that out of the three books in this series that are out now…this one stressed me out the most. Poor Robbie and Kelly…the hits just kept on coming. TJ sure knows how to make my poor heart bleed !!!

Don’t worry too much though…this is TJ we are talking about and even though he loves to toy with our emotions…he also makes things right again…mostly 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659

Now I am not gonna go into the plot and spoiler the story. So this is about all you’re getting from me. I can, however, tell you that I really loved seeing all my favorite characters again. Team “human” still cracks me up and they (again) managed to keep things light when the darkness threatened to take over. 

After reading Robbie and Kelly’s story, I am even more excited about Carter’s book. I really believe his story might become my favorite, though it will be hard topping Ox (<—see what I did there). 

As most of you know, TJ’s books aren’t really high on the steamy side of things, and with Kelly being asexual, the steam is even lower than in the previous books. That said…the intimacy between Robbie en Kelly is definitely sky-high 😉 

Highly recommended !!!

Everybody thinks Mackey Sanders’s Outbreak Monkey is the last coming of Rock ’n’ Roll Jesus, but Cheever Sanders can’t wait to make a name for himself where nobody expects him to fill his famous brothers’ shoes. He’s tired of living in their shadow.

Blake Manning has been one of Outbreak Monkey’s lead guitarists for ten years. He got this gig on luck and love, not talent. So hearing that Cheever is blowing through Outbreak Monkey’s hard-earned money in an epic stretch of partying pisses him off.

Blake shows up at Cheever’s nonstop orgy to enforce some rules, but instead of a jaded punk, he finds a lost boy as talented at painting as Mackey is at song-making, and terrified to let anybody see the real him. Childhood abuse and a suicide attempt left Cheever on the edge of survival—a place Blake knows all too well.

Both men have to make peace with being second banana in the public eye. Can they find the magic of coming absolute first with each other?

Beneath the Stain, by Amy Lane is one of my all-time favorite MM books. It made me laugh, it made me cry (a lot) and it made me swoon. It also had the perfect amount of angst for me. So it was in one word wonderful. Finding out that Cheever was getting his own book….was even more wonderful, because it meant I was getting a chance at revisiting all my favorite characters. 

hell yeah gif - Google zoeken

Remember that spoiled little shit in Beneath the Stain ?? Well, he is all grown up now and he isn’t as spoiled as everyone thinks he is. Sure he has a whole bunch of stuff his brothers never had, but that doesn’t mean he is happy. He might not have financial problems but he is very much alone.

Growing up without all his brothers around to protect him, like they used to, isn’t easy. And having a famous brother who came out as being gay isn’t easy either….it gives people certain ideas…

oh no gif - Google zoeken

Cheever never thought being gay was a problem…I mean he grew up around Grant and Mackey, and he has seen more things than they know. It isn’t until other people make problems, that Cheever realizes that being gay might not be okay…and if that is the case…does that mean that there is something wrong with him…

But with Mackey coming out first and things going to shit for him at school… He keeps falling deeper and deeper into the rabbit-hole. So Cheever just locks everything inside… where it can’t affect anyone else.

hurt inside gif - Google zoeken

And when he gets the chance to leave his home town…he takes it in a flash.

Maybe he can be an awesome artist…make something of himself. Something that has nothing to do with any of his brothers…Something just him.

For nine long years, Cheever has kept his distance from his brothers. But when the future he was hoping for falls to pieces, so does he…in a spectacular and tragic way. Thankfully Blake is right there to pick up all his pieces and glue them back together again. 

But Blake had plenty of issues of his own…so the question is. How will two such screwed up people make this work? The answer, however, is quite simple… LOVE people !!!

I absolutely loved Cheever’s story, though I have to say that it had a ton of similarities with Beneath The Stain. Not that I minded since it is one of my favorites

It has been a couple of years since Rowe pulled his head out of his ass and realized he was head over heels in love with Noah.  He still very much is and Noah loves him back just as much.

The Fischers are the only family Brennan has ever known, and when they adopt him, he has no plans on doing anything to jeopardize that. Even if it means pretending Josh Daly doesn’t make his heart pound every time their eyes meet. 

The tension eases once Josh heads off to a Christian University on a baseball scholarship. Brennan stays put in Elm Grove to work at his family’s drive-in movie theater and take classes at the local community college. 

But when Josh comes home for summer break, the feeling not only returns, it transforms into a loud and commanding drumbeat he struggles to tune out. 

Finally admitting who he is feels overwhelming. There’s a reason Brennan remains a virgin and when he realizes Josh might be one too, the chemistry between them becomes impossible to ignore. Except acting on his attraction throws everything Josh has been raised to believe out the window. 

Plagued by fear and self-doubt, they finally surrender, placing their trust in each other and their undeniable connection. But facing the world together takes the sort of faith that will either strengthen their bond…or shatter its very foundation.

I have been on a real YA streak lately and when I read the blurb for this one, I know I had to add it to my list. I sounded absolutely perfect to me and guess what ?? It really was !! I absolutely loved this sweet, but also a bit angsty, slow burn.

Those of you who are not a fan of insta love are definitely gonna love this one, because these two guys really take their sweet time… I kept screaming at them to kiss !!

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor kiss already gif

In the back of their heads, Brennan and Josh have always known there was something more between the two of them than friendship.  ever since they spend some time together at camp. But with both of them being so young still and Brennan just being adopted into his new family, not to mention Josh’s extremely religious parents, neither of them really gave it a second thought. Until now that is…

cuteness...

Both of them are adults now and neither of them has ever dated a girl….and they are finally starting to fully realize why. But realizing why doesn’t make things any easier for them. Brennan is afraid his adoptive family won’t want him anymore and Josh has been lectured enough about homosexuality enough to know his family will never accept him being gay

But the heart wants what it wants and these boys definitely want each other !!

These two were so adorable together. Seeing them make a connection and fall in love….discovering each other in all ways. It took them a while, but that first kiss was definitely worth the wait. So sweet and so hot 😉 

 But as they grew closer and more and more in love, I was waiting for the other shoe to drop…because it always does.

It did of course but it wasn’t all as bad as I thought it would be. I know this author can do really angsty when she wants to, but this book was pretty mild…at least I feel that way. Then again, I am a big angst-lover…

I highly recommend this one !!

Gideon Ramsay is so far in the closet he should be a talking faun.

A talented, mercurial, and often selfish man, Gideon has everything he should want in life. Fame, money, acting awards – he has it all. Everything but honesty. At the advice of his agent, Gideon has concealed his sexuality for years. But it’s starting to get harder to hide, and his increasingly wild behaviour is threatening to destroy his career.

Then he’s laid low by a serious illness and into his life comes Eli Jones. Eli is everything that Gideon can’t understand. He’s sunny tempered, friendly, and optimistic. Even worse, he’s unaffected by grumpiness and sarcasm, which forms ninety percent of Gideon’s body weight. And now Gideon is trapped with him without any recourse to the drugs and alcohol that have previously eased his way through awkward situations.

However, as Gideon gets to know the other man, he finds himself wildly attracted to his lazy smiles and warm, scruffy charm that seem to fill a hole inside Gideon that’s been empty for a long time. Will he give in to this incomprehensible attraction when it could mean the end of everything that he’s worked for?

From the bestselling author of the Mixed Messages series comes a story about a man who needs to realize that being true to yourself is really just a form of finding home.

This is the third book in the Finding Home series but it can be read as a standalone.

Wow…I really loved this book. I might even love it a smidge more than “Oz“, which is saying something because I really liked Oz a lot. Gideon though, he rocked my world and so did his love interest Eli. They were absolutely awesome together. I laughed my ass off, fanned myself when things got hot, and I even cried some little tears. Sounds perfect right !!

https://www.google.com/search?q=awesome gif

Let me start out by saying that unlike a lot of others, I didn’t blame Gideon for his behavior in “Milo“. For me, it was actually the other way around and I blamed (and maybe I still do) Milo for taking what was not his to take. I don’t that it was just a “friends with benefits” deal between Niall and Gideon… There is an unwritten rule… you don’t go where your sibling has gone and Gideon was there first so…

So I went into this book completely open. I had no grudge against Gideon and I was sure, that even though his behavior was a tad bit harsh, he had his reasons… and boy does he. He actually made me feel even sorrier for him… I knew there was a reason I loved him from the start 😉

https://www.google.com/search?q=you are wonderful gif

Gideon is not in the best of places when this book opens, and you will get to know exactly why. I felt a bit heartbroken about his sadness. Thankfully he is not alone and even though Milo and Niall are not my favorites, they do love Gideon and they do want what is best for him. His manager Frankie, however, is a real piece of work. I don’t really have any nice words to say about him. He is responsible for introducing Gideon to the best thing to ever happen to him though… Eli !!

Eli was absolutely wonderful. I loved every single thing about him. He reminded me of Oz so much but for some reason… I loved him even more..can you believe that !!??

Eli is a nurse hired to look after Gideon on his way back to Engeland and to “keep him away from coke and twinks” …quoting Milo here 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659

Eli was absolutely perfect for Gideon. He brought light back into his life and Gideon finally just got to be… I think the best part of this book was watching Gideon grow and coming into himself

EXCERPT

“Round the block?” he intones in a gloomy voice.

I nod. “Yes, please.”

The car moves off slowly. He examines my face in the mirror. “You okay, sir?”

I look up, surprised. “Of course,” I say abruptly. Then I ask, “Why?”

He shrugs, returning his attention to the road. “You don’t look so good, Mr Ramsay.”

“Oh Russ, you old charmer, you,” I drawl, slugging some more tequila. “What’s with the ‘sir’ and ‘Mr Ramsay’ business anyway?”

He ignores the question. He’s more passive-aggressive than Taylor Swift. “You haven’t eaten properly for a few days now,” he says instead in a concerned voice.

“I have eaten,” I say crossly.

“Tequila and vodka aren’t any of the major food groups.”

I shrug. “I had a Pop-Tart this morning.”

“You had that yesterday and very charmingly regurgitated it into a jasmine bush earlier on.”

“I’m fine,” I say dismissively.

“I surely hope you are,” he says wryly. “Because you’ve got your hands full tonight.”

I shake my head, thinking of the two men I’m about to get into bed with and looking down at my very disinterested cock. “Russ, you’d need a medium and a séance to bring my dick back to life tonight.”

He laughs loudly and then sobers. “Maybe you should call it a night then. Go to bed on your own for a change, sir.”

“Okay, Nanny McPhee. And maybe I’d be better with a box of tissues and a wi-fi connection.” I sigh. “Actually, that sounds a lot quieter.” I stare blearily at the back of his grey head. “I hope you also know that tagging the word sir on the end of a sentence doesn’t make it any less bossy.”

Do you believe in love at first sight?

Corey Ellis sure doesn’t. Oh, everyone around him seems to have found their happy ending, but he’s far too busy to worry about such things. He’ll have plenty of time for romance after he survives his last summer before graduation. So what if he can’t get his former professor, Jeremy Olsen, out of his head? It’s just hero worship. And that’s the way it should stay.

Except that this summer, bigender Corey—aka Kori—is interning at Phoenix House, a LGBTQI youth center that recently hired an interim director. And because life is extraordinarily unfair, the director just so happens to be a certain former professor, now current boss.

Desperate to keep things professional as he and Jeremy grow closer, Corey makes a major mistake: he turns to his friends, Paul Auster and Sanford Stewart, for help.

But Paul and Sandy have some ideas of their own.

Set in the summer of 2016, Why We Fight is a celebration of queer life and being true to oneself… no matter the cost.

This is the fourth book in the “At First Sight” series and I have loved each and every single one. They make me so freaking happy !!!! Now I first fell deeply in love with Corey/Kori when I first met them in “The Art of Breathing“, and I am so glad I finally got to read their story….and what a great story it was fcc37b1805a49c13a3f7d3d50b64ed47

awesome story gif - Google zoeken

Corey/Kori is bigender and biracial, which unfortunately means that life hasn’t always been the easiest for them. That said…I think they turned out pretty awesome. I love seeing that they weren’t too bitter about what happened in the past. 

Apparently, Corey/Kori have been crushing on their former college professor Jeremy Olsen, who turned out to be Robert’s son (Charlie’s man). And guess who is gonna be his temporary boss for his summer job at the LGBTQ center ?? That’s right…Jeremy 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659

thats right gif - Google zoeken

How will Corey/Kori ever be able to work under him (pun intended). They are sure that Jeremy doesn’t feel the same, but when they are proven wrong, how will they keep their hands off each other and stay professional.

With Paul and Sandy’s noses all up in their business things are bound to get weird…and crazy funny. I especially loved the parts with “Johnny Depp” in them !!

I absolutely laughed my ass off reading this one, though there were also times when I got a bit choked up. No Wookie Cry Face though… 

I could have done with a bit more Ty, since he is still one of my faves, but hey we can’t always get everything we want. 

As all good things go, this series has come to an end and I have a bit of a double feeling about that. I love how they all got their stories and their HEA, but I don’t know if I am ready to say goodbye.

Thank god for re-reads !!!

SinnerThree: Hey, nothing wrong with pushing your boundaries…

LobsterShorts: Tell that to my control-freak father. Anyway. What if this threesome is awkward?

SinnerThree: Then it’s awkward. It’s not like we’ll ever have to see each other again. Right? Just promise you won’t fall in love with me.

LobsterShorts: Now wouldn’t that be life-changing…

I absolutely freaked when I found out about this “Top Secret” book….but in a good way of course 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659

These authors are wonderful when they write their own stories (and I have read many of them), but when they put their minds together…they create absolute MAGIC. Case in point “Him” and “Us“. Two of my all time favorite books !!

So you can understand that I HAD to read this one. I just knew it was gonna be another favorite. Spoiler alert: it was !!

awesome gif - Google zoeken

This is a wonderful “enemies to lovers” kind of story, which is one of my favorite tropes. They are also quite the “opposites attract” kind, so that was an extra bonus, as was the exploratory gay sex 😉 Yummmmmmmy !!

Keaton is a rich jock, running for frat president Alpha Delt, because his dad wants him to. He has been in a relationship with the same girlfriend since high school, and he is quite the “people pleaser“. Hence him trying to find a guy, to take part in a threesome with him and his girl…because she asked for it as a birthday present.

Under the name of “Lobsterpants” he joins “Kinky“, a special kind of dating app, which is where he meets “SinnerThree“.

Luke is in the same frat as Keaton and he is also running for frat president. Just not for the same reasons. Luke is dirt poor, and knowing that the president of the frat gets free housing, is enough incentive for him. Even if most of his frat brothers hate him. 

Luke is also a regular on “Kinky” under the name “SinnerThree” where he likes to hook up with couples… they can be gay or straight.. Luke doesn’t care because he likes both 😉

And so he meets Lobsterpants and the fun begins 😛

It was wonderful to see these guys texting back and forth. I laughed my ass off. They were both great guys, though I have to say that Luke did annoy me a bit towards the end… Keaton…he is the man !!! I just loved him and his Lobster shorts !!!

The steam was HOT…I mean gay virgin here…but they were also really cute together !!!

Now for those of you wondering…no, this isn’t a love triangle. The girlfriend does play a part but for me, she was pretty insignificant. I myself didn’t really like her but that was because of some choices she made. She plays no real part in the relationship that Keaton and Luke have. I know for some, it’s really important to know.

I had a great time reading this one and I will definitely be re-reading it again and again in the future.

I highly recommend and I hope we will get some more from these two amazing authors !!

After three years, Snow and Jude’s relationship is still passionate and strong. They’re getting ready for a romantic vacation at home when Jude receives a horrifying call no one wants to receive. His youngest brother was found barely clinging to life. While Jude’s family is rallying around Jordan, Jude is determined to find out what happened to him.

Snow and Jude follow the clues, investigating a side of Jordan’s life none of them knew about…and is far darker than any would have believed possible. They get pulled deeper into the seedy side of life, while echoes from a past Snow thought he walked away from return to offer an unexpected insight into the cause of Jordan’s injuries.

But someone else has noticed their involvement and is furious, putting them both in danger. The risk is high but so is Jude’s determination to find the truth—though the knowledge could very well fracture his heart.

I have been a huge fan of these two authors ever since I first read “Shiver“. There was no going back after that one, and Lucas, Andrei, Snow, Jude, Rowe, Noah, Ian, and Hollis have pretty much been like family since…well maybe “family” is not the right word, considering all the dirty thoughts I have about them… Acquaintances might be a better word.

I love all the men in this series…each and every one of them is special and amazing, (though everyone knows that I am gonna marry Hollis 7e6c22cc4c29adb0f4a619d0806b71f1 one day) but I think Snow and Jude are definitely the hottest couple. So getting another book about the two of them is a real treat.

It has been three years since these two found each other and, they have been going strong ever since. Things have finally settled down for everyone and after working non-stop, Snow and Jude are ready to have some vacation time..aka alone time together…

Too bad fate feels like screwing with them once again…

When Jude’s youngest brother ends up violated and beaten down in the hospital, Jude and Snow will go to extremes to find out what happened and punish those responsible. Thankfully they are not alone, which meant I got to see all my favorites again !!

I absolutely loved this one…I spend most of the time reading it on the edge of my seat. It deals with some heaviness but these wonderful authors know exactly when to lighten things up a bit, preventing it becoming too dark. And since this is Snow and Jude we are talking about, there is also some delicious steam

I highly recommend all the books in this series and I can’t wait for some more Rowe/Noah and Ian/Hollis (oh how I love Hollis 7e6c22cc4c29adb0f4a619d0806b71f1). Jocelynn and Rinda have already promised us their stories next 😉 

Now if you’ll excuse me…I have some Unbreakable re-reads to do 😛

Excerpt

Snow rushed through the emergency room with Jude. His heart was pounding so hard it was like he could feel it in his throat, threatening to choke off his airway. A sinister nagging voice in the back of his head kept repeating, Three years, three years, three years.

Roughly three years ago, he’d run into this same hospital to find one of his best friends on the floor, his entire world falling apart because his wife had been killed in what had appeared to be a car accident. And he hadn’t been there to operate on her. To save her life.

Melissa Ward had been light and laughter and happiness. She’d brought joy to all who knew her.

And Rowe Ward had been devastated to lose her. They all had been.

They’d nearly lost Rowe to his grief.

Now Snow was running through the hospital where he and Jude worked nearly every day. He was vaguely aware of familiar faces registering surprise and flashes of sadness as they passed by, but it didn’t matter. They stopped only long enough to find out that Jordan was in surgery and that Jude’s family was already in the surgical ICU waiting room.

“Snow,” Jude said in a low, shaky breath as they waited for the elevator to ascend to the correct floor. That broken sound gutted him.

He reached over and wrapped his hand around the back of Jude’s neck, pulling him tight against his taller frame. “We’ll figure this out,” he replied, forcing the words past the lump in his throat while telling himself that this was not going to be like Mel.

Jordan was a strong young man. Not even twenty-one yet. A good guy who loved to laugh. Definitely not the sort to seek out trouble. This had to be nothing more than him being in the wrong damn place at the wrong damn time. The doctors on call would be able to fix him up and get him safely on the mend.

But he couldn’t give Jude promises that he couldn’t keep or offer fake platitudes. Jude had worked as a paramedic for several years now. He’d been the paramedic first on the scene for Mel. He knew how quickly things could turn bad with nothing anyone could do to stop them.

“My brain won’t accept it. Not Jordan.”

“I know,” Snow said. “But he’s young and he’s strong. That works in his favor.”

The elevator doors parted, and they were quickly moving again to the large, quiet waiting room.

Nothing interferes with Shane Hollander’s game—definitely not the sexy rival he loves to hate.

Pro hockey star Shane Hollander isn’t just crazy talented, he’s got a spotless reputation. Hockey is his life. Now that he’s captain of the Montreal Voyageurs, he won’t let anything jeopardize that, especially the sexy Russian whose hard body keeps him awake at night.

Boston Bears captain Ilya Rozanov is everything Shane’s not. The self-proclaimed king of the ice, he’s as cocky as he is talented. No one can beat him—except Shane. They’ve made a career on their legendary rivalry, but when the skates come off, the heat between them is undeniable. When Ilya realizes he wants more than a few secret hookups, he knows he must walk away. The risk is too great.

As their attraction intensifies, they struggle to keep their relationship out of the public eye. If the truth comes out, it could ruin them both. But when their need for each other rivals their ambition on the ice, secrecy is no longer an option…

I really enjoyed the first book in this series Game Changer I mean who doesn’t love a good gay “sports” romance ?? And hey…we are talking hockey here !!

But I’ve got to be honest and say that this second book, outshined the first one by miles … for me that is. I absolutely loved this book and I fell head over heels in love with Ilya Rozanov… 7e6c22cc4c29adb0f4a619d0806b71f1

This one has one of my favorite tropes… “enemies to lovers” Boy, do these two know how to have some awesome “hate/angry sex“!! My ovaries damn near exploded. I remember saying that the first book in the series could have done with a smidge less sex…but that was definitely NOT how I felt about this one… The first book was also much sweeter even though I think this one was more romantic… I hope I am still making sense 😛

This story starts in the present and then takes us back about 7 years. Normally I really don’t like it when a book takes me back in time, but with this one…I thankfully gobbled every bit of new info up and begged for more.

Shane and Ilya have been enemies on the ice for years and….lovers in bed. But how do you spent years being intimate with someone and not catch feels… The world may think they hate each other, and they both play their parts…but deep inside, …they know better.

I can’t wait to see what this author has in store for us next !!

I highly recommend this series 😉

He’s hot for teacher

NHL star Tristan Holt may be at the top of his game, but he’s already thinking one play ahead. Hitting the books in the off-season means he’ll have a business degree to fall back on when it’s time to hang up his hockey skates.

But his straightforward plan is complicated by his undeniable attraction to his sexy sociology professor, Sebastian Cruz.

Impressed by Tristan’s brain as well as his brawn, Sebastian can’t help lusting after the gorgeous jock. With tenure on the line, Sebastian won’t break the rules by becoming involved with one of his students—at least, not until the end of term. Once final grades are posted, though, their naughty mutual fantasies can become reality.

Tristan’s not sure he’s up for being the poster boy for openly gay hockey players, but Sebastian’s never been the type of man to keep his sexuality—or his relationships—in the closet. For Tristan, being with Sebastian might mean risking more than just his heart.

When I found out that one of my favorite books was being repolished, I happily signed up to review it, because what’s better than re-reading one of your favorites!! I can’t really say this is a “golden oldie” because it hasn’t been that long since I first read this one. I can tell you that I still loved it just as much the second time around. Maybe even more since I have been slowly building a newfound appreciation for BDSM and other sorts of kink 😉

I was already a huge hockey fan. Those big sexy men, with their big sticks…come to mama !!!!!  I am also a huge fan of Avon Gale’s Scoring Chances series. No way I wasn’t gonna love this one !!

 This book has a lot of tropes I absolutely love…We get two hot guys getting down and dirty, my favorite sport (hockey !!), some age difference, student/teacher (forbidden vibe), and some very nicely done “kink“. Not to mention the delicious dirty talk. What more could a girl wish for … not much, I tell you !!

I am not a big “kink” reader, but I have slowly started to appreciate it more and more. It also helped that these guys were extremely HOT together! There is definitely a bit of a dom/sub relationship going on here and I myself think it was very nicely done. Tristan loves to have his ass spanked 😉

There was also a bit of humiliation play, and I’ve got to be honest here and say that I am not a big fan. It’s definitely one of the reasons I couldn’t give it 5 stars. Thankfully it wasn’t too much and so I didn’t feel like putting the books down.

Tristan Holt is a 23 year closeted NHL hockey player, for Venom. He is taking classes he is to get his business degree because he is afraid “hockey” alone won’t be enough to secure his future.  That’s where he meets his Sociology professor. It becomes clear real soon that Tristan…is hot for his teacher 😛

Sebastian Cruz has offered to summer school since this could help him get tenure. He definitely the broody kind and his “resting bitch” face is practically famous. For a professor teaching about “bias“, he makes a huge mistake, when it comes to Tristan though. Fortunately, Sebastian is also the kind of person to admit to his mistakes and to try and fix them. 

admit fault gif - Google zoeken

These two have an instant attraction going on, and sparks are flying everywhere, but they don’t act on it, not until Tristan is no longer Sebastian’s student, that is. That doesn’t mean they don’t get off on the whole teacher-student thing. 

I really enjoyed the way Sebastian dominated Tristan, he was exactly what Tristan needed and wanted.

When he was alone in bed at night, he craved dominance. Someone to help him just….let go.

Sebastian definitely helps him to let go. The man was an absolute master at making Tristan submit and blush… and did I mention his dirty talk ?? It was delicious.

“You can suck me off after lunch” …”Except I want you to do it in my bed, nice and slow. If you think you deserve my come, you need to work for it.” 

tumblr_m4yf5hGztz1qiqy8mo1_500.gif (500×430)

Tristan had no problem “working” for it, that’s for sure.

As they spend more and more time together, their feelings for each grow. But Tristan is still hiding deep inside the closet, while Sebastian is very much out and proud, with no intention of going back in.

I absolutely loved this book, it was hot and sweet and both characters awesome. I also loved all the other members of Tristan’s team, and I really hope, we will get the goalie’s story next …I can’t wait !!

I Highly recommend!
