XANDER

Sean Bailey, the older brother of my lifelong best friend, has always been a surly, temperamental pain in my ass. But sometime during the last few weeks, I’ve gone and fallen head over heels for him.

Gruff and charming, charismatic in his own way, I’ve found myself looking past my preconceptions and discovered a whole new side to Detective Dick—a side I could fall in love with.

But life isn’t always easy—it can change course in the blink of an eye. Sometimes for the good and sometimes for the bad. I know this because last night I experienced both sides.

I went to Sean for help in guarding my body; what I didn’t expect was for him to steal my heart.

This is the second book in the Prime Time series, after the previous one left us with quite a cliffy… boy do I hate cliffies!!! Which sucks for me because we get another one with this book 😛

oh nooo gif - Google Zoeken

Anyhows… this one picks up right where book one ended…

Xander and Sean are falling deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole of love… but there is a bit of a dark cloud hovering above them because of Xander’s stalker situation and the aftermath of what happened in the first book.

No worries though… these guys are all kinds of cute together. I loved seeing them “healing” together, while their love for one another grew. I really have a weak spot for detective “Dick” 😛

I'm a sucker for you gif - Google Zoeken

Can’t wait to get my hands on the next book, even though I hate cliffies… I will gladly deal when it comes to Ella Frank 😉

ARC Review “Boyfriend Material” by Alexis Hall

50225678

red-kiss-print-2 BLURB

Wanted:
One (fake) boyfriend
Practically perfect in every way

Luc O’Donnell is tangentially–and reluctantly–famous. His rock star parents split when he was young, and the father he’s never met spent the next twenty years cruising in and out of rehab. Now that his dad’s making a comeback, Luc’s back in the public eye, and one compromising photo is enough to ruin everything.

To clean up his image, Luc has to find a nice, normal relationship…and Oliver Blackwood is as nice and normal as they come. He’s a barrister, an ethical vegetarian, and he’s never inspired a moment of scandal in his life. In other words: perfect boyfriend material. Unfortunately apart from being gay, single, and really, really in need of a date for a big event, Luc and Oliver have nothing in common. So they strike a deal to be publicity-friendly (fake) boyfriends until the dust has settled. Then they can go their separate ways and pretend it never happened.

But the thing about fake-dating is that it can feel a lot like real-dating. And that’s when you get used to someone. Start falling for them. Don’t ever want to let them go.

I had an awesome time reading this one and it was exactly what I needed. It made me feel good and that is always a big plus in my book 😉

I feel good gif - Google Zoeken

I loved the writing style of this one and being new to Alexis Hall, this is good news, because this means I can now start a whole new list of books to my TBR list.

Now as funny as this book was to me, it’s not all there is to it. There were definitely some other emotions involved while I read this one, though the snark and banter were my favorite 😛

It took a while for the characters to grow on me, but once they did, I was all in. I could have done with an epilogue though… It is one of my pet peeves, I just NEED one 😉

All in all an awesome read and I will definitely be checking out more work by this author.

BLOG TOUR POWER PLAYS & STRAIGHT A’s by Eden Finley & Saxon Jame


Release Date: June 29, 2020

Cover Design: Story Styling Cover Designs

Genre: M/M College Sports Romance


SYNOPSIS

FOSTER:
“Look out for Zach and don’t hit on him.”

My brother’s request sounds easy enough. Keep an eye out for his best friend on campus and keep my hands to myself.

Easy.

Even if Zach is a quintessential nerd, who I’ve always thought was cute, I don’t have the time to think with my … stick.

There’s only one stick I should be focused on this year, and that’s my hockey stick. My goal once I graduate is to get an NHL contract.

The last thing I need is a distraction. On or off the ice.

Only, keeping to the rules is harder than I thought it would be.

ZACH:

People confuse me.

And no one more than Foster Grant.

I’ve barely spoken two words to him in the whole time I’ve known him, but the second I step foot on campus, he’s impossible to shake.

I can never anticipate his next move. And whenever we’re together, my next move is a total mystery as well.

I want to give in to him, but that might mean coming clean about something I’ve never been bothered about before.

I’m still carrying my V-card.

And I think it’s time to turn it in.

Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance (stand alone)
Release Date: June 16, 2020

affection-1294965__340 BLURB
Two men. One sweet dream of family and forever.
Gabriel “Bull” del Toro loves his fast-paced globe-trotting job, but aches for an honest relationship and the trust that comes with it. After a few too many heartbreaks, he’s nearly given up hope of finding that special someone. 
Until Ben.
Born deaf, Ben is used to working twice as hard for what he wants, but risking a newfound friendship on an impossible dream is scary. After all, there’s one lesson he’s learned: everything is temporary—freedom, friends, even family.
Neither man expects the undeniable spark between them or for every moment together to fuel that connection. For the first time, a happily ever after is within reach, but they must trust that the dream of acceptance, family, and a place to call home is more than a sweet fantasy. 
It can be forever.
————
A Sweet Man is an interconnected standalone within The Men of Halfway House series. It is a story about the power of love, the meaning of family, and never giving up on a dream. It includes wounded hearts, an age-gap romance, and enough cake and sweetness to give you a toothache.

He walked into school on his first day and owned it.

Also didn’t hurt he’s drop dead gorgeous.

That’s all fine.

I mean, I have nothing to do with them.

I’m a loner, invisible, and that’s how I wanted it to be.

I was even proud of it, until I wasn’t.

Until I saw a girl kneel before him.

Until I couldn’t look away.

Until he caught me watching.

His name is Blaise Devroe. My name is Aspen Monson.

He only knew how to get, command, and demand attention.

I knew how to do everything but that.

And this is our story.

Xander

If I had to describe Sean Bailey, it would be: a surly, temperamental pain in my ass. Never in that equation would I ever include the word boyfriend—and not just because he’s straight.

The older brother of my life-long best friend, Sean is a detective for the Chicago PD, and is also known as Detective “Dick” for being…well, a surly, temperamental pain in everyone’s ass. He also happens to be the best they have, which is why I find myself on his doorstep the night my life is threatened by an anonymous stalker.

I only wanted the name of a bodyguard; I didn’t expect for Sean to volunteer for the job. Now, not only do I have a bodyguard, I also have a fake boyfriend.

Sean

It must be so hard to be Alexander Thorne, the number one prime-time news anchor in the country, with millions of dollars and a car that costs more than my house. I mean, I’m allowed to give him a hard time about it, but when some creep decides to cross the line and go after him, they’re gonna have to answer to me.

Going undercover has never been an issue in the past, so I don’t see why there’d be a problem now. Xander and I have known each other for years, so this should be a breeze. Except suddenly my stomach’s flipping when he looks my way, and my body comes alive whenever he brushes by me. I know I’m good at my job and playing a character and all, but this is getting out of hand.

I can’t be sure that either of us are playing anymore.

Variable Onset by Layla Reyne

48998309. sy475

Lips-PNG-File BLURB

To catch a killer, a special agent and his former student will need to get close—to their target, and each other. Layla Reyne returns with a stand-alone romantic mystery.

When the serial killer known as Dr. Fear seemingly reemerges after a cooling-off period, Special Agent Lincoln Monroe wants on the case. He knows his research on the calculating criminal, who targets couples and uses their worst fears to kill them, could prove invaluable. But nothing can prepare Lincoln for the agent waiting for him in Apex, Virginia: a brash and cocky former student. Carter Warren is everything Lincoln is not, and somehow everything he wants. And they’ll be going undercover. As newlyweds.

For Carter, seeing Lincoln again—and flustered to boot—pokes his raging bear of a crush something fierce. He thinks posing as lovers will provide the perfect bait for Dr. Fear. But pretending to be married forces them to confront fears of their own…like giving in to the very real chemistry between them.

With evidence pointing to the possibility of a copycat killer, Lincoln and Carter will have to race to separate truth from fiction. But when another couple goes missing, finding the killer will test every ounce of their training, skills and the strength of their bond like never before.

I love reading mystery and suspense. There was a time when that was the only genre I read, but then came romance and MM romance and I was hooked… Layla Reyne gives me a combination of all and I really appreciate that 😉 

appreciated gif - Google Zoeken

Now let me start off by saying that this is a mystery/suspense first…all the rest takes a backseat in this story but that doesn’t mean it is less important. It is not a hearts and flowers book though, so don’t expect too much on the love and kisses front. Though there are kisses…. 

While the suspense builds, so does the sexual tension between Lincoln and Carter.

sexual tension gif - Google Zoeken

The slow build was extremely slow in this one and even with my love for all the mystery, I have to admit I could have done with a bit more romance… 

Still, it kept me on the edge of my seat and I was utterly captivated…

If you are a fan of the mystery/suspense genre and you don’t mind the romance taking a backseat, then you should really give this one a go.

Release day Review “Obsessed” (The Protectors #13) by Sloane Kennedy

42603697. sy475

277302437068211 BLURB

I wanted him from the moment I laid eyes on him and from that point on, the question wasn’t if I’d have him but when


Thirty-five-year-old Matias de la Vega is good at one thing and one thing only. Though he doesn’t officially carry the title of killer when it comes to his role in an underground vigilante group, he’s got no problem getting his hands dirty if it means getting justice for those who can’t get it on their own.


Such is the case when single dad Sam Wittier is confronted by a stalker bent on murder. While neutralizing the threat is all in a day’s work for Matias, what comes after is anything but. Although Matias isn’t particularly surprised by his attraction to the older Sam, his inability to walk away from the still-grieving widower is a complication.
An unexpected and dangerous complication…


Nothing about the mysterious Matias makes sense to me. The emotionally distant soldier says what he means and takes what he wants. And for whatever reason, what he wants is me. That should have me running for the hills. It should, but it doesn’t…
For forty-eight-year-old Sam Wittier, life is as good as it’s been since he lost the man of his dreams more than two decades earlier. After handing the reins of his successful business over to his older son, Sam is happy to settle into the quiet, simple life of being a full-time single dad to his newly adopted little boy.


Unfortunately, life didn’t get the message. After nearly losing everything to a deranged stalker, Sam finds himself face to face with a man who is anything but quiet and simple. There’s no reason he should want the unpredictable, take-no-prisoners Matias in his life or his bed, but just like life, his body isn’t getting the message.
One night with Sam is all I need to get him out of my head for good. One night will be enough to end my obsession with him. It has to be…


While Sam and Matias share a white-hot chemistry that neither has ever known before, that’s about all they have in common. But as one passionate encounter leads to another and the line between obsession and need begins to blur, will Matias and Sam find that maybe they aren’t so different after all? And what will that mean for the ghosts of the past that have haunted each man for so long?


The ghosts that are willing to be buried as well as the ones that aren’t…

Everyone that knows me, also knows that Sloane Kennedy’s “Protectors series is one of my all-time favorite series….that along with all the other amazing spin-off’s she has written. I can’t believe this is already the 13th book in the series!! 

And I still hope there will be many many more…

many more gif - Google Zoeken

I do want to give some advice to those of you planning to read this book (and you should). I am normally a pretty reckless reader…meaning, I don’t care about reading orders and all that, I just do what I want…

i do what i want gif - Google Zoeken

..But when it comes to this series, I do recommend to read all the books in order, and in this case, to also read the novella, Protecting Elliot. If you don’t, you might feel like you have jumped into an ongoing story and you could get a bit confused.

Protecting Elliot is about Cruz and Elliot. Cruz is Matias‘ brother and Elliot is Sam‘s son. Matias and Sam are the main characters of this story. They meet through a horrific ordeal at the end of novella 9,5 and their story picks right up in this one. 

We get a bit of an age gap, which I always think is yummy and there is plenty of hurt/comfort for those graving it… It also wouldn’t be a Sloane Kennedy book without the delicious steamy scenes 😛

Preconceito 0

As is the case with most of the main characters in this series, both men carry some substantial emotional /psychological baggage. But no worries…they will work it out together in plenty of ways 😉

That said, I am gonna be honest and admit that this one was not my favorite of the series. I think this is mostly because I feel nothing for the “dead spouse” trope. I usually skip these kinds of tropes, but we are talking Sloane Kennedy here and there is no way I was gonna skip this book. So…this one not being my fave..it’s a personal issue and I think most won’t have that problem and are gonna love everything about it. 

Besides, even I can’t love them all the same, and I did still enjoy reading it, even though reading, for me in these hard times, is not the same. I find the most comfort in my golden oldies right now and so… 

I think it might be time for a “Sloane Kennedy series” re-read ….

Just because he fascinates me, that doesn’t mean I like him.

Roman “Quick” Webb is one badass bounty hunter on the crime-filled streets of Atlanta. He’s fearless when it comes to carrying out his dangerous job alongside his longtime best friend and business partner, Duke. However, there is one thing that has begun to cause Quick concern and it’s the dreadful thought of living out the rest of his life alone.

Dr. Cayson Chauncey has been wildly attracted to the big, tattooed hunter for almost a year, ever since he performed the surgery that saved Quick’s best friend’s life. Cayson must’ve mistaken Quick’s gratitude for something more, because the one time he tried to make his desires known, he was harshly rebuffed and left on the man’s doorstep feeling stupid for hitting on an obviously very straight man.

Dr. Chauncey stirred up Quick’s suppressed, most carnal desires from a place deep down inside of him. He’d reacted so badly the first time that now his sexy surgeon wanted nothing to do with him. It was going to take a fair amount of patience and a whole lot of wooing involved as Quick sets out to convince Cayson that he’s worth another chance and that he is the brave lover who Cayson has been looking for.

Zero Divergence, noun: no deviation from a course or standard.

After a key piece of evidence goes missing, a suspected serial rapist and killer evades prosecution. More than Royce Locke’s reputation is on the line when his investigation into the failed chain of custody suggests Franco Humphries might’ve had inside help. There’s no one Royce trusts more than Sawyer Key to help him right a wrong and uncover the traitor in their midst, but can they do it before the Savannah Strangler strikes again?

Relentless plus fearless equals flawless. Sawyer and Royce have come full circle—from hostile strangers to best friends and lovers. Neither a sniper’s bullet nor an arsonist’s fire could keep them apart, but what about a psychopath hell-bent on revenge? The stakes are high, and there’s no turning back now because the zero hour is upon them. Tick tock.

Zero Divergence is the conclusion to the best-selling Zero Hour series, which follows Locke and Key’s investigations and evolving relationship. This is a series you MUST read in order. It contains mature language and sexual content intended for adults 18 and older.

Trigger warning: Part of the storyline involves coming to terms with a friend’s suicide, which may be difficult for some people to read.

Even if I wasn’t losing my sight, I never would have seen him coming…
I’ve known my fate for years, but I wasn’t willing to accept it. But as the light in my eyes dims a little more each day, I have no choice but to adapt.

Or not.

The secluded cabin in the north woods of Maine is supposed to be an escape… a place where I can figure out how to move forward with my life… to find out if I even can.

But then he shows up and suddenly I’m facing a new fight…

GIDEON
He wants to be left alone? Fine by me. But I’m not going to watch him just give up…
Wanting to be left alone, that’s something the guy and I have in common. But that’s about it. As far as I’m concerned, he’s just another rich city boy playing at living off the grid for a while. He’s got no idea what it really means to be alone.

My job is to take care of the cabin he’s staying in and that’s it. It doesn’t matter that I can’t stop thinking about why he looks so damn broken or wondering why he stirs something inside of me I thought long dead.

But try as I might, I can’t stay away from him, just like I can’t watch him give up on himself. He may be losing his sight, but I won’t let him lose himself.

I won’t let him become like me…

This is the second book in the “The Four” series, which is a spin-off of the awesome “Protectors” series. It can be read as a stand-alone but maybe it will be more enjoyable after also reading the first book “Forgotten: Luca“.

It has been some time since I got to read a “new” Sloane Kennedy book, so of course, I was over the moon when I found out about the release of this one.

This time we get Lex’s story, and I have got to admit I didn’t remember a single thing about him until I started reading, and then parts of it came back to me. For some reason, I have always been drawn mostly to King and so he was still the freshest in my mind from the first book. 

The reason I didn’t remember a whole lot about Lex, also had to do with the fact that he didn’t play a really big part in the first book. The reason why will become fully clear after reading this one.

Lex has been dealing with an extreme complication of his diabetes. Having lived with diabetes since he was young, he knows the struggles of dealing with this disease. Unfortunately, this disease can also cause some major side effects and Lex will now have to deal and accept and turn parts of his life completely around.

He has decided to do this away from his over-protective brothers, who still don’t know anything about what is going on…well except for King that is… 

Lex has tucked himself away in some remote cabin in Maine, where he will try to come to terms with the repercussions of his diabetes. So far he is NOT dealing…and he is not okay.

This is where Gideon comes in. He is the caretaker of the cabin that Lex is staying in and even though their meeting could have gone a bit better, they soon become “friends” of sorts and even learn to rely on each other. Of course, their “feelings” don’t just stop at “friendly”, which is especially shocking for Gideon who has only ever seen himself as straight. No worries though… he is pretty accepting of the fact that he is attracted to a man… We get some nice “exploratory” steamy scenes. 

But both of these guys have a ton of inner demons they are fighting… So… it was a bit of a bumpy ride

I am gonna be honest and say that Lex is not one of my favorite “Sloane Kennedy” characters. I know he had it hard but his running away and overreacting to certain situations (even though logical) got on my nerves a bit. Miscommunication, or in this case, non-communication really bothers me and leaves me yelling at my book!!

I don’t like yelling at my book and my family likes it even less Knipsel

I also felt a bit disappointed with the lack of “Lex’s brothers” in this one.  I would have liked a bit more about them, instead of Gideon’s family. For some reason to me, it felt like Gideon’s family was more important, while we (or I at least) still know how hard things where for Lex’ brothers in the previous book, especially Luca. This book made me feel as though the brothers are really growing apart and that makes me a tad bit sad. 

So this one didn’t leave me with the satisfying feeling I normally have when closing one of Sloane’s books. I did, however, appreciate the little snippet we got at the end about Lex and Gideon going to Vegas to check on Con. It gave me some hope when it comes to Lex and Con’s brotherly bond…

Now, we can’t love them all the same and I am particularly a fan of badass alpha men. So I have this feeling that I am gonna absolutely love Con and King’s books. They have been my two favorites since they were first introduced. With the little hints given in this one….and I hope I am right about those… King’s book should especially rock!! 

That said, I am sure all the hurt/comfort lovers out there are gonna be all over this book !!
