They are the Fallen. A brotherhood of murderers whose nature compels them to kill. But guided by their leader, Gabriel, the Fallen have learned to use their urges to rid the world of those it is better off without.

For Raphael, sex and death are intertwined. Where there is one, there must be the other. He is a lust killer, luring his victims with the face of an angel and a body built for sin. 

And Raphael lives to sin. 

His newest mission takes him into the sadistic underworld of Boston’s secret sex clubs, and puts him face to face with his greatest fantasy made flesh.

Maria is everything he’s ever dreamed of, the kill he’s always longed for. She’s not his target. And he knows he must resist. But the temptation is too strong…

Yet Raphael is not the only one with a mission. Maria is not quite what she seems. And as her secrets and Raphael’s unravel, Maria begins to question everything she thought she knew—about evil, about the place she calls home, and about the beautiful sinner she was sent to destroy.

Dark Contemporary Romance. Contains sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and topics some may find triggering. Recommended for age 18 years and up.

Let me start this review by saying that you will absolutely need to read the prequel novella, The Fallen: Genesis, before you can start this one. Now it’s pretty awesome, so it’s not like it will a chore. I myself really enjoyed it and it definitely left me with hundreds of questions and a craving for more…

So…those of you who have already met “The Fallen“, know who Raphael is. He is one of the 7 men in the brotherhood of murderers. He is the man with the face of an angel…but don’t let his good looks fool you 😛 

An angel he is definitely not….especially since strangulation is what really get’s his blood pumping…Even cutting off the blood supply to his own finger gives this guy a hard-on. 

Like all the others, Raphael has his own bloodthirsty fantasy…and his new mission has led him right to it…or I should say her.

Dorothy Wieck, 1933

Maria is everything he has ever wanted…to be with..and to kill

She is pure and innocent and the perfect bait for The Brethren to use against Raphael.  They know about his ultimate fantasies…they know what he dreams of.

Maria is was the exact opposite of Raphael….and yet…she was perfect for him. She was his Rose

She is just as broken as he is inside. I actually felt so sad for both of them. 

“She would be the saint to his sinner. The light to his dark. The chastity to his lust”

How can he just pass up a chance to fulfill his utmost fantasy…he just can’t.

I was absolutely intrigued once again, by this book. That said, I do have to be honest and say that this series does bore some resemblance to the Hades Hangmen series. Not that I’m complaining about that fact, because I love that series. 

That said, The Hades series is still my favorite so far, especially Ky 7e6c22cc4c29adb0f4a619d0806b71f1 …but who knows what will happen in the future. I am particularly curious about Michael’s story, so far he is my favorite and I have good feelings about him and his book 😉

EXCERPT

Father Murray’s eyes locked on the woman again as she was released from the metal cage and brought into her lover’s embrace. The man slammed his mouth against hers and thrust his fingers into her overused pussy. They were dressed in scandalous leather outfits that did little to conceal their bodies. Father Murray’s lip curled in disgust. The man pulled back and made for the bar. His slut’s cheeks were flushed, and her lips were swollen from the claiming kiss. She had red marks littering her body like the witch she was. Bruises and gashes from whips and chains and whatever else the male sinner had used on her flesh.

Flesh that belonged to the Lord, not her. Flesh that she was defiling, making a mockery of.

As Father Murray sipped on his water, he noticed the whore was walking to the bathrooms. His eyes tracked her across the room, then scanned the club for any sign that someone else would follow. But the heathens were too busy fornicating to notice or care. His heart kicked into a sprint; she was alone in the bathroom. He squeezed the bottle of water until it was crushed beneath his grasp.

Father Murray’s skin burned as he watched the door of the bathroom. His muscles tensed so tightly they felt as though they would snap. His eyes misted with red . . . and then he was moving. He let the Lord fill his senses and gave over control.

Do with me what you will. Use me as your vessel to destroy the evil walking this earth.

As quick as a shadow, Father Murray turned the knob of the bathroom door and walked inside. The whore stood in front of the mirror, wiping a cloth along her rancid pussy. She turned her eyes his way. What first seemed like shock at the interruption turned into heated interest.

“Can I help you?” Her voice was all seduction. The voice of the devil, Father Murray thought. A living temptation trying to sway me from the path.

It would only make her cleansing all the more powerful.

Father Murray licked his lips and pushed his jaw-length dark hair from his eyes. He saw the whore’s eyes flare. That was the reason he was picked for these missions. Father Quinn had told him God gave him his looks and body for this very reason. To ensnare impure sluts and send them to the depths of hell where they belonged and would dwell for eternity.

Silently, Father Murray turned, giving the slightest nudge of his head in instruction for her to follow. He didn’t look back, and the thumping music from the speakers in the club meant he couldn’t hear her high-heeled feet on the floor. But he knew she would follow. It was God’s will.

These missions were the Brethren’s very reason for existing.

Father Murray exited out of the back door and down the winding fire escape stairs. A metal door plunged him into the darkness of the alley outside. He stopped against the wall and waited. He smirked when the fire door opened and the slut walked through. He watched as her eyes squinted in the dark, searching for him. She smiled when she caught sight of his intense gaze fixed on her. “You like privacy, huh?” she asked, coming to stand before him. “Not into public displays?” She smiled. “You should try it. There’s nothing like all eyes on you as you come.”

The whore ran her long fingernail down Father Murray’s chest. Her touch did nothing to him. There was no stirring in his cock, no satisfaction from her attention. The bitch had no idea what turned him on.

She would soon.

She dropped her hands to the fly of his pants and undid his zipper. Her tongue snaked out and licked along her too-white teeth. The whore was a demon wrapped in attractive female flesh.

But she wouldn’t make this man of God sin.

Father Murray grabbed the top of the whore’s arms, spun her, and smacked her back against the wall. An innocent soul would feel fear, dislike of the rough contact. But not this slut. She smiled, enjoying the pain Father Murray’s aggressive grip brought.

Heathen. A heathen who deserves to die.

“Are you gonna fuck me or what?” she whispered in his ear. The whore lifted her hand and flipped her hair back over her shoulder, aiming for seductiveness. Father Murray knew the movement was a message from the Lord. An invitation to strike, to do his work of ridding the world of sinners.

Father Murray smiled; the whore smiled back. He didn’t bother to tuck his cock back into his pants. Instead, he ran his hands over her hell-created curves, listening to her moan. His fingers roved over her small waist and up over her large breasts. Finally, his hands rested on either side of her neck. Father Murray stared right into the whore’s eyes. Leaning in close, he whispered, “You are a blight on the world. You have no place on this earth . . . and I shall be the holy warrior to send you back to the second level of hell.” Her eyes only had a second to flare with fear before Father Murray began to squeeze. The whore’s mouth dropped open as she quickly became starved of breath.

Father Murray hadn’t been aroused by the whore’s touch. But now, with his hands ridding her of life, his dick was hard and throbbing with the need to release. He panted as the whore’s body began to fight back. But she was too weak; he was too strong. He pressed his wide chest against her tits and pushed her hard into the wall. The friction of her skin against his erection only heightened his excitement. Father Murray rocked against the front of her bare pussy, his hands tightening and tightening until the whore’s eyes began to bulge. She clawed at his chest. But the battle, the pain she was trying to inflict on his pure soul, only made his hold around her neck tighten.

*Always Mine* by Sloane Kennedy

Title: Always Mine
Series: A Love in Eden Novel
Author: Sloane Kennedy
Genre: Gay Romance
Published: June 18th, 2019
Rating: 4 stars 

 

images (1) BLURB

I had one reason for never going back to the small town I once called home, but I never guessed it would be the same one that made me want to stay… 

Brooks 
I grew up in the small town of Eden, Wyoming, but never really felt like I fit in. 

Until I met the one boy who changed all that. 

When we were kids, Xavier Price understood horses, but somehow, he got me too. He’d made me feel like I wasn’t just the overdressed, too sensitive fifteen-year-old geek who loved math and didn’t always say the right thing. But all that changed the night he threw my trust back in my face and betrayed my family in the worst kind of way. 

And while I’m back in Eden to make sure my uncle’s horse ranch is operating in the black, the one thing I know I won’t have to deal with is the man who’d been on the verge of stealing my heart ten years ago. 

Because Xavier Price is still in prison for what he did and even if he weren’t, he wouldn’t be foolish enough to show his face in Eden ever again. 

Right? 

Xavier 
Wrong. 

That’s what returning to Eden after ten years behind bars feels like. But it wasn’t like I had a whole lot of choices. And it wasn’t like I was going to be handed any decent job offers, let alone my dream one of working with horses. 

But that’s exactly what happened and now that I’m foreman of Black Hills Ranch, I’m not letting this job go for anything. 

Not even the spoiled little rich kid I’d thought was different when he’d glommed onto me ten years ago. 

I have no doubt Brooks Cunningham didn’t wait long to move on to bigger and better things the second my jail cell was locked behind me, and that’s just fine by me. I’d been wrong about the sweet, emotional boy who’d had a habit of wearing his heart on his sleeve anyway. 

Except fate has decided to have another go at me by tossing Brooks right back into my sometimes too small world. Gone is the scrawny, stars-in-his-eyes nerd who used to do math problems just for fun. In his place is a gorgeous specimen of a man who thinks he can go toe to toe with me and once again destroy everything I’ve worked for. 

Not happening.

When I found out that one of my favorite MM authors was coming with a new series… it made me happy as a hippo.

happy hippo gif - Google zoeken

There haven’t been so many great MM books out this year…it is slim pickings to be honest and I gotta say, I really needed this.

When I read the blurb, I figured I was in for a world of angst, but this wasn’t really the case.

Xavier and Brooks were really good friends when they were in their teens. Different as they could be…they still formed some kind of instant connection. Brooks is a numbers boy, who loves solving math problems and the ranch owner’s son. Xavier is more of a hands-on kind of kid and he is the son of the ranch manager.

Where Xavier goes…Brooks goes until the ultimate betrayal happens….but who is the one betrayed ??

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor you betrayed me gif

Fast forward 10 years and these two will have to face one another again. Both of them are still chocking on their hurt and the betrayal, but neither of them knows the real/full truth

No matter how much they try to hate and resent each other…their hearts have already chosen years ago…and what the heart wants, it will try to get.

https://www.google.nl/search?q=hot gay couple gif

These two have plenty of demons to fight, especially Xavier, but most of his past isn’t described in detail. There are mostly hints about why he is the way he is today. As far as triggers go, this is a very mild book, compared to what I have read in the past by this author.

It is mostly about loss, betrayal, overcoming your hurt and learning to trust again.

I really enjoyed reading this one, though I have to be honest and also admit that I am on pins and needles to read the next “protectors” book. I am a sucker for angst, drama and some darkness. Which is why that series (and the spin-off) will always be my favorite.

That said… I am very curious about the second book, and I hope it will be Jules’. I have a feeling I am gonna love that guy….and his love-interest 😉

Genre: Gay Menage Romance
Release date: May 24th, 2019
Rating: 4 stars

Protection has its price, but so do fantasies…

Fantasy Week happens twice a year at Crave, and it’s always a big hit—a way to live out your wildest fantasy in a safe, sane, and consensual manner.

But when Cade comes in with his Fantasy Week invitation, he’s not happy about it. He’s stoic as hell and his preferences don’t seem to match his fantasy at all…and yet, despite that, he enjoys himself with Tegan and Vic. At least at first.

When it becomes glaringly apparent that the fantasy isn’t something Cade’s comfortable with, it’s confusing for the men he’s been paired with, and Tegan and Vic put a stop to the scene immediately.

What Cade doesn’t know is that Tegan and Vic are not only co-owners of Crave, but they’re also owners of a mercenary group, Gray Ops, that’s run out of Crave. They’ve also been circling each other for years… but nothing sparks until their session with Cade.

What happened in Room 4 is something none of the men can forget…but it’s got nothing to do with a fantasy and everything to do with blackmail. Can Tegan and Vic help Cade keep his secrets, while keeping all of them safe at the same time? Because the threatening to spill out aren’t only Cade’s…

*This series is set in the MEN OF HONOR world, in the bar called Crave from Bound By Honor

Over the last year or two, I have actually started to appreciate reading some menage stories. Now not all of them are executed the right way…at least that’s how I feel about them, but this one was very nicely done. It was also very HOT 😉

thats hot gif - Google zoeken

I am not a big BDSM fan but the blurb of this book really caught my interest, so I figured I would just give it a go. I am really glad I did because this book was much more than just a BDSM story.

Now don’t throw rotten fruit at me…but… I have not read the “Men of Honor” series yet. It is on my never-ending TBR list and I swear I will get to them asap !! So you can imagine I had no idea what Crave was or any of the people working there. Still, there was no confusion on my part, so that’s good 😉

https://www.google.com/search?biw=1366

Cade comes to Crave because he is supposedly realizing one of his fantasies at “Fantasy Week”. When Vic and Tegan (also owners of Crave) start to reenact his so-called fantasy, it becomes pretty clear that Cade isn’t as into it as he should have been. So even though there is some major sparkage between the three of them… Vic and Tegan pull the plug on the whole thing.

pull the plug gif - Google zoeken

Of course, there is a reason FOR Cade’s very strange behavior and Vic and Tegan want to get to the bottom (hehehe) of it…and they do. Being mercenary Gray Ops, they are also the best guys Cade could pick to have his back (hehehe).

If you enjoy reading about hot alpha military men going at it, and falling in love…you should really give this one a go.

Excerpt

“Am I being chauffeured or can I take my own truck?” Cade asked as they walked out the back door of Crave, leaving behind Oz’s yells of “I can’t promise what I’ll do if you leave me alone with him.”

“We’ll drive you,” Tegan told him.

“Why don’t you just carry me across the threshold of the fight club when we get there?” Cade muttered.

“Didn’t know you needed that level of romance,” Vic said seriously. “I’ll keep it in mind.”

Cade sighed heavily and got into the back seat with Vic, while Tegan drove. He guessed it was for protection, and arguing wouldn’t change a damned thing. He needed to preserve his strength anyway.

Vic handed him a Gatorade and a PowerBar. “Eat up.”

Cade muttered, “Fucking starving and this shit tastes like cardboard.”

“Fight first, then I’ll get you a goddamned buffet,” Vic promised.

“There’s a McDonald’s on the corner,” Cade pointed out hopefully.

“You had an entire pizza recently,” Vic reminded him.

“Recently to me is the last hour.” Cade bit into the PowerBar and stared at Vic. “I think this went bad.”

Vic frowned. “They can’t go bad.”

THE FALLEN: GENESIS
(A Deadly Virtues Prequel)

IN THE BEGINNING…

They told them they were evil.
They told them they were possessed by demons.
They told them that darkness ran in their veins.

Holy Innocents Home for Children is a haven for orphaned boys who have nothing and no one. The priests watch over them, educate them, raise them in the family of the church.

Except for some.

Seven of the orphans are no ordinary boys. They attract the attention of the priests for their acts of violence, of bloodlust. The priests realize these boys are drawn to the darkness.

And the priests are no ordinary priests. They are the Brethren, a secret sect who believe themselves on a divine mission to seek out evil in the boys in their care. Seek it out, and then drive it out.

The seven have fallen from God’s grace. And the Brethren will cleanse their blackened souls…

Dark Contemporary Romance novella. Contains sexual situations, violence, sensitive and taboo subjects, offensive language and topics some may find triggering. Recommended for age 18 years and up.

I am a HUGE fan of the “Hades Hangmen” series. No one can do “dark romance” the way that Tillie does it. Usually, I skip the short prequels in series, but I knew I HAD to read the introduction to what is bound to be Tillie’s new HIT series !!

gonna be awesome gif - Google zoeken

Now let me start off by saying, that there isn’t anything “romantic” about this novella. It is purely an introduction into the world of “The Fallen“.  Gabriel, Michael, Raphael Selaphiel, Barachiel, Jegudiel, and Uriel.

They told them they were evil.
They told them they were possessed by demons.
They told them that darkness ran in their veins.

darkness inside gif - Google zoeken

These boys aren’t anything like the regular orphan boys at Holy Innocents. There is a darkness within them, driving them to act in violence. They have been chosen and isolated because of their inner demons… being punished, again and again.

They have no one to stand up for them en to protect them against the real evil that is the Brethren. No one besides Gabriel that is, the purest of them all….and he turns out to be everything they needed…

sacrifice quote - Google zoeken

I advise everyone, who is planning to read this series, to start right here with this little story. It already explains a lot…yet leaves you with so many questions. 

I myself have no idea what’s in store for us next. It could be anything. I do know that this is just the tip of the iceberg and the best is yet to come. After this little taste, I can’t wait to jump into “Raphael’s” book.

I need it right now, please !!!

Excerpt
Joseph watched helplessly as James moved from his place against the far wall toward a boy on a chair on the opposite side of the room. A boy who had slim knives embedded in his arms and legs—a human pin cushion.
Joseph shivered as he recalled his brother’s expression a moment ago as he’d sat and stared at the knives he had sliced into the boy’s flesh. James, the sadistic voyeur of his own work. Joseph’s nervous eyes landed on his brother’s target. The boy was bound with ropes, and a washcloth was stuffed into his mouth,silencing his cries.Luke.Fear flooded Joseph’s body. Luke, the boy who had been intent on bullying James since the age of eight. The boy who would spit at James’s feet when they walked by. The boy who call him weird, a goth, a psychopath who rarely spoke. His taunts were endless. Joseph didn’t think the verbal bullets had ever hit their target . . . until he’d found a pad of paper hidden underneath James’s bed. A pad of paper showing in graphic detail what James wanted to do to Luke.Tie him up.Cut his flesh.

Exsanguinate his body.

Then drink the blood down.

“They’re just fantasy, right?” Joseph asked James when he returned from detention. Joseph held up the drawings. Page after page of pain and despair and cruelty.

James walked slowly to Joseph and ran his hand down the open page of the pad, delicately running his fingertip over the pencil image of Luke’s slit throat. “It’s a promise,” James said, with no shame in his voice. “Each page is what will happen to Luke.” James finally met his older brother’s eyes. “I’m just waiting for the perfect time.”

From that day on Joseph made sure Luke never got too close to James, for fear of what his younger brother would do. Because Joseph believed every word his brother had said.

The truth was, Joseph knew that someday, if he wasn’t stopped, James would do something so terrible he wouldn’t be able to come back from it.

And Joseph had no idea how to cure James. He didn’t know how to heal his little brother of the wretchedness that had lodged itself into his soul. He prayed for a miracle he knew would never come.

Joseph’s heart pounded as James held up another knife. His brother’s torso was bare, the scars from his frequent self-mutilation clear to see, white roads of flesh mapping the veins that ran under his skin. Veins that carried the blood James so desperately craved; nightly, once safe in their room, he would slice them open and lick the falling drops as they ran in crimson rivulets down his arms.

Joseph thrashed on the bed, fighting the binds James must have placed him in while he slept. “James, listen to me,” Joseph said as he helplessly watched his brother slowly push his blade into Luke’s shoulder. Luke’s chair almost fell as he screamed into the washcloth, the fabric absorbing his cry. But James didn’t even flinch. Joseph’s stomach clenched when the blood started to pour from Luke’s shoulder as James carefully extracted the blade.

Eleven. That’s all James was. Eleven years old, yet thought only of blood . . . worse, even . . . thought only about the consumption of blood.

She is a good time—trouble, but fun. And I’m here for a good time, not a long time.
So let the good times roll.

“You’re a bad idea.”  “But…” she ventured.

“But I like bad ideas.”  We don’t make mistakes, right? Just happy little accidents. At least that’s what Bob Ross said. And my dad. Yep, he says that, too. Every year, on my birthday, he reminds me I’m a ‘happy little accident’ because the condom broke.

But, hey! Wasn’t the creation of penicillin a happy accident that resulted from the discovery of mold growing in an agar dish?
And while that accidental discovery changed the course of medicine, Lucy changed the course of my life. Like a staph infection that somehow turns into an abscess that takes over your limbs, Lucy took over my heart—quickly, painfully, unexpectedly, but treatable with antibiotics.

Bold and brash and unapologetically herself, Lucy represents anarchy from women I typically dated.
She is my ‘Beautiful Oops.’

I had a wonderful time reading the first two books on this series, The Slam and The Foreplay. I actually developed a bit of a crush on Adelaide….and yes on Ender as well 😛 

This third book is about Edric, Ender’s brother and of course I had to read it and witness his HEA. I was also very curious to know if his book was gonna be as funny as his brother’s was. I am very glad to report that it most definitely was 😛 If you haven’t read the first two books…no worries because this one can be read as a stand-alone. 

laughing my ass off gif - Google zoeken

Now as much as I laughed my ass off, there were also more serious moments in this book, so there is a bit of a balance. That said, I do believe this falls under the whole rom-com genre. 

I myself am also a big fan of the “fake relationship” trope. Edric and Lucy start out as a fake couple but it doesn’t take too long before the lines between fake an real are blurring. 

These two had some major chemistry going on which means there were also some very nice and sexy moments. 

I knew Edric would be just as awesome as Ender…so now I am in love with both brothers… and their girlfriends 😛

affection-1294965__340 BLURB

On stage, Adam lets his passion drive him. All his secret desires, everything nasty, dirty, and beautiful flows freely through him, for once in harmony. His soul thrives when his body moves, but only on stage. Adam’s passionate nature makes him a great dancer…and a failure at life. He’s a lonely, emotional mess. Going home with a man far out of his reach is the last thing Adam should do. Christoffer represents everything Adam isn’t: strong, independent, educated, and rich. His kind eyes, at odds with his brutish form, make Adam’s knees and restraint buckle.

Once Christoffer sees Adam dancing, he’s lost. The young man is mesmerizing, otherworldly, and unpredictable. Whatever might happen between them, it will be transient, and Christoffer will most likely get hurt. The temptation is too great, however, and the sex explosive. He might as well enjoy every moment he’s given, even if it’s just one day, maybe two. If Christoffer treads carefully, Adam might stay until Monday.

This is the second book for me by this author and again, I was very impressed. This story is the definition of sexy and naughty but not without also being romantic. I can also tell you I was pretty aroused at the end 😉

Those of you who have read The Other book, already know Christoffer and Adam. Those of you who haven’t should really give it a go. They had some nice “playtime” with Tyler. I remember being very curious about the dynamics of their relationship and wanting to know more. So I was extremely happy to find that I was getting my wish 😉 

wish granted gif - Google zoeken

This book tells us how Adam and Christoffer, who seem to be so very different, met. They are quite a few years apart in age but that is not all that is so different about the two of them. I am a huge fan of “opposites attract“, and this one definitely hit the mark. 

But what I loved most about this story, is the connection these two shared. It was so sweet and intimate. Of course, it was also very very HOT 😉

 I have to admit to being a sucker for “love at first sight“, especially when I as a reader can actually feel it.

I highly recommend this book and the previous one.

My first crush. My first heartbreak. My brother’s best friend.

The butterflies in my stomach turned into full blown eagles the second our lips touched. A kiss under the stars that changed our relationship forever.

After a lifetime of wishing, I stared up into Ford’s eyes with his fingers caressing my cheek and my heart racing.

The evening ended with my heart bleeding on the ballroom floor.

He destroyed my heart two years ago…but now he wants back in my life.

This time I won’t fall under his spell. I’ll resist his sexy, scruffy beard, and panty-melting smirk.

I thought I was over him. Hell, I fully planned to wave to him through my rearview mirror…but with one text, in the middle of the night, I know I’m in over my head.

Ford: I need you.

I have read every book in this series and I have got to say that they are pretty entertaining, so far I have enjoyed all of them. I definitely feel like I could read another 10 of them…maybe even more 😉 

Now, I also have to be honest and say that this right here, is one of my least favorite tropes….the “brother’s best friend“. I am not a big fan. I feel for you gif - Google zoeken

There is always some form of fighting and most of the time…I agree with, and feel sorry for, the brother. I just can’t help myself… As was the case with this book. 

So as much as I loved Ford and Liv to finally be together, I kept thinking how Colm was gonna feel about all this. And them being together wasn’t the only issue either. So many secrets are about to be revealed… 

I do understand that Ford and Liv really belong together…they definitely burned up those sheets, but now all I want is for Colm to be happy !!!

Which means I am gonna be on pins and needles until I get to read his book. Thankfully the author is not making us wait too long. I have a feeling Colm’s book is gonna be my favorite out of them all…I have always liked him best 😉 

That said… Ford and Liv were quite lovely together and I am glad they finally found their happiness together.

I highly recommend this series !!

Seth Arnold learned at an early age that two things in life could make his soul soar—his violin and Kelly Cruz. In Seth’s uncertain childhood, the kindness of the Cruz family, especially Kelly and his brother, Matty, gave Seth the stability to make his violin sing with the purest sound and opened a world of possibility beyond his home in Sacramento.

Kelly Cruz has loved Seth forever, but he knows Seth’s talents shouldn’t be hidden, not when the world is waiting. Encouraging Seth to follow his music might break Kelly’s heart, but he is determined to see the violin set Seth’s soul free. When their world is devastated by a violent sexual assault and Matty’s prejudices turn him from a brother to an enemy, Seth and Kelly’s future becomes uncertain.

Seth can’t come home and Kelly can’t leave, but they are held together by a love that they clutch with both hands.

Seth and Kelly are young and the world is wide—the only thing they know for certain is they’ll follow their heartstrings to each other’s arms whenever time and fate allow. And pray that one day they can follow that string to forever… before it slices their hearts in two.

Amy Lane is the author of one of my “all time” favorite books “Beneath the Stain” and one of my “all time” favorite series “Johnnies” So there was never any question if I was gonna read this book. I would read the phonebook of Amy Lane had written it.

So I am also not surprised that this book was pretty awesome. Amy likes her emotions and angst and so there was no shortage of frustration and tears on my part. It is what I expected from this author, I tried going in prepared….but it never helps 😛

https://www.google.com/search?biw=1517

I went through all the motions right along with Kelly and Seth and at the end of the ride, I was exhausted !! But what a ride it was !! My heart got broken into pieces, but I can always trust Amy Lane to mend it back together towards the end. 

Kelly and Seth were perfect for one another….a true match made in heaven en for me this story really shows that love does conquer all.

Blood, sweat, tears (so many tears) and a whole bunch of swearwords …but it was definitely worth it !!

Broken doesn’t describe him.
His demons now define him.
Brody.
The name that left my lips so many times.
The name that stole my heart.
The name that made me into the woman I am today.

The name that eventually shattered my world so completely. He built me up, with love and desire – his darkness tore me down.

Now he’s gone.
Out there – trying to fight a battle that isn’t his to fight.
He’ll die. No truer words have been spoken.
Everyone tells me to walk away, to let go.
I can’t fix him.
I can’t save him.
I can’t keep hanging on.
How can I let go?
My whole world lies within him.
He is the very reason I breathe.
So I’ll fight.
I’ll do whatever I have to do.
I’ll find him.
I’ll bring him home.
Even if it kills me.

This book starts out in the present and then keeps skipping back to the past to show us what exactly happened to Brody, to make him the man he is today. It also shows us some insight into his relationship with Melanie. Normally I am not a fan of multiple switches between past and present but in this case, it didn’t bother me too much. It actually worked pretty well.

past present gif - Google zoeken

Brody is a pretty messed up and broken soul. The last time he was left broken and hurt, he found Melanie and she managed to heal many of his broken pieces…this time though…he has turned his back on the one person that lights his soul. All in the name of revenge. There were times I felt really sorry for Brody but there were also times I wanted to smash his face in.

I dont know how I am feeling gif - Google zoeken

Melanie is feeling hopeless without Brody and she is determined to help him. She swore to always be on/by his side and so she will do whatever she has to, to try and save him once again…

I enjoyed this story a bit more than I did the previous book…which was a bit confusing to me. That said… MC Sinners (next gen) and Joker’s Wrath series will always be my favorites by this author I think.

I have read every single novel these two ladies have written together and so far I have enjoyed them all. That includes this particular book and so I can only hope that they will keep em coming, so I can keep on reading 😉

This is the seventh book in the series and this time we get to read about Daniel, Ward Security’s very own accountant. Now I am gonna be honest here and admit that I had no idea who Daniel was when I started this book. I guess I haven’t been paying enough attention because I am sure he was mentioned somewhere before. But with all my favorite hotties around, I guess I must have missed him… my bad

Those of you who are into the whole “nerd” and the “badass” theme…are in for a treat! Nerdy Daniel is about to stumble upon his very own “secret agent man” when a case of mistaken identity leads Edward right to his lounger in Bermuda. Of course, he doesn’t know who Edward really is when he meets him. All he knows is that he wants to climb him like a tree….which he does 7e6c22cc4c29adb0f4a619d0806b71f1

There is no denying the instant chemistry between these two, even though Edward likes to pretend he is only doing “his job“. Pretty soon they are neck deep in trouble and they need each other to make it to safe ground.

This book is full of fun, action, steam and sweetness and we even get a short little cameo with some of my favorites

Now as much as I enjoyed this one, I have got to admit that I just wanted a bit more. I wanted to know more about Daniel and Edward personally. I know I am greedy but once a couple’s story is finished in this series, we don’t get much more info about them anymore. So this is all there is.

I want more gif - Google zoeken

I wish that some of the books in this series would be longer. I miss really getting to know the characters like I did in “The Unbreakable Bonds” series. Those guys really started to feel like family and I guess that is something I don’t feel when reading this series. That doesn’t go for all books though, Geoffrey, whom I feel I know a tad bit more, is definitely an exception. But I guess that is because he does make several appearances in both series…and that’s the way I really like it 😉 

So I guess it’s time for an Unbreakable re-read huh… 

If you’re a fan of steamy and suspenseful gay romance, I highly recommend this series 😉


Excerpt

Daniel took a sip of the frozen margarita and hummed his pleasure as the cool, citrus flavor burst over his tongue. It was the perfect antidote to the sun beating down on his head. The sun he was enjoying more than he’d expected.

Bermuda in June held a dreamlike quality that made him feel as if he’d entered another world. Sparkling, white sand. Big, open sky. Crashing surf. And the scenery in between the two was a feast for the senses as well. Rocky outcroppings gave the view texture, and the green of the trees along the sides of the beach only added to the spectacular color.

Of course, a life spent behind a computer meant he was pale as hell, leaving him to slather on suntan lotion. The Fairmont Southampton hotel where he was staying for the next week rose up on the hill behind him with the bright greens of the golf course crossing in front of it.

Today, he was planning to do nothing more than sip the drink at his side, read the latest thriller from his favorite author, and people-watch from his lounge chair on the beach. Maybe in a day or two, he’d wander around the island and take in the sights, but for now, he wanted to do a whole lot of nothing but relax and soak up the rays.

It would be a nice break from his job at Ward Security where he worked as a forensic accountant. He loved his job and especially loved the place he worked, but he still didn’t totally feel like he fit in. Or he was just the perennial wallflower.

But that was the story of his life.

Too shy for his own good, Daniel felt like he was that random piece in search of the right puzzle.

Daniel knew he should feel used to being the outsider, but Ward Security only brought it into stark clarity because all his coworkers were so outgoing. They’d become their own tight-knit family. They all tried to make him feel included, but Daniel’s insecurity and awkwardness kept him from joining in as much as he knew he should.

Even now, Quinn Lake was texting him for more pictures of Bermuda. One of Ward Security’s resident hackers, the poor guy spent even more time behind his computer than Daniel did. He admitted when Daniel mentioned his planned vacation that he never traveled, preferring to stick close to his ailing mother. But he loved to live vicariously through his constantly roaming coworkers.

Come on, Daniel! Gimme one more pic!

Smirking, Daniel grabbed his margarita and held it up so that the beach and surf were clear in the background when he snapped the picture. He sent the image, took another drink of his alcoholic beverage, and put it down on the little table beside him. He was just about to put his phone down as well when it pinged with another message.

A loud laugh jumped from his throat when he opened it to find Quinn had sent back a picture of him and Dominic Walsh. The hacker and the redheaded bodyguard were both glaring and flipping him the bird.

Dom says you need to find a man to go with that drink, Quinn texted a second later.

Daniel put his phone down without replying, but a smile still lingered on his lips. This vacation was not about finding a summer hookup. This was his chance to wind down and get his head on track. He’d been pulling long hours at Ward, and he’d looked forward to this vacation for a long time.

An hour later, he half dozed, lulled by the alcohol and sun, his book forgotten on his lap. A lounge chair next to his creaked, and Daniel could only assume that someone was stretching out in the sun. He didn’t even bother to open his eyes, was just grateful this newcomer didn’t come with chatty friends or screaming kids. Right then, there was only the sound of the crashing surf on the beach and the low, distant sound of music drifting from the nearby beach bar. This was heaven.

It wasn’t until he turned over that he cracked his eyes and caught a glimpse of the man next to him. His eyes flew open wide to take in all six and a half feet of the gorgeous creature. Blessed with broad shoulders, narrow waist and hips, the man was stunning. Black hair and a close-cropped beard gave his craggy face character. Daniel had always been a sucker for the rough-hewn look on a man, and this guy had rough down pat with his thin face, bladed cheekbones, and full lips. His arms looked like he could out bench-press the security agents at Ward Security. Black tattoos covered his left shoulder and upper arm in an almost-hypnotic design. He wore plain black swim trunks that came to only the tops of his thighs and looked as if they were painted onto his perfect form.

Daniel was used to being around big men, used to feeling kind of small despite his height of five eleven, thanks to the mountains strolling around Ward Security. He was built thin. Hours of working out would never change that. Taut and whipcord lean was what his last boyfriend called him. And Derek was the last person Daniel wanted to think about. Derek and his wandering dick.

Dark eyes turned his way, and the smile that stretched those full lips did something to Daniel’s chest. He smiled back as he settled on his stomach and closed his eyes. Wouldn’t do to stare at the hot man like some creeper. Though he couldn’t help but crack his eyes one more time. Those eyes—brown—were still on him, and they held interest as they ran down his form and locked on his ass. His ass was the one thing not lean about him. “A perfect, round bubble butt,” Derek had said.

It took all his effort to hold back a grin when the man looked at him and shrugged sheepishly. He held out a hand. “Might as well introduce myself now that I’ve come across as a complete tool. I’m Edward. Edward Raines.”

Two roommates. One calculus exam. A whole lot of extracurricular activity. 

Nate
Living with four other guys, it’s bound to happen.
Every guy’s been caught taking care of business at least once, right?
It shouldn’t be a big deal.

But I don’t know Eric as well as my other roommates, and things are a little awkward now.
He’s a loner. A mystery. Quietly confident. Smart.
Sexy as hell.

I’ve been happily subsisting on the typical frat guy diet of booze and sorority girls.
But the way Eric looked at me that night?
There was something there.
Something that’s got me curious.
Something that’s stirring up feelings I thought I’d left behind for good.

Something that’s making me think I’m not as straight as I thought was.

I can’t get him off of my mind.
I don’t think I want to.

So when he offers to help me study for a midterm I’m convinced I’m going to fail, I take him up on it.
It’s innocent.
Probably. Maybe.

There’s no way I could’ve known what it’d start…

This is a super steamy standalone new adult/college mm romance with HEA that unfolds across six “episodes” following Nate and Eric. Now bundled up in one collection with a bonus episode for a seamless reading experience.

When I read the blurb for this book, I just knew I HAD to read it. I mean come one… two hot and horny college roommates… some studying… Yeah, count me in !!! Just throw in some popcorn as well 😉 

I'm down gif - Google zoeken

This book started out as 6 free episodes provided by the author in her newsletter and on her website. I, however, haven’t read any of them before and I am glad I didn’t because I now got to read them all bundled up in one go. Which I really enjoyed…even though my ereader almost caught on fire, it was damn HOT.

Eric and Nate are college roommates, together with a couple of more guys. They are not really friends. They both go their own way and don’t interact a whole lot. But that is all about the change when Eric catches Nate in the most uncomfortable position a guy can be caught in. With his hands on his dick and a finger up his ass 😛

The entire book is told from Nate’s pov and it soon becomes very clear that frat-boy isn’t as straight as he pretends to be. Besides some little events in the past…being caught by Eric turns him on something fierce… so maybe this is something he can explore ??

Eric sure as hell is game, he has always identified as bi-sexual and he loves getting his hands on Nate and bossing him around. Wow, he had a dirty mouth on him…

I gotta say, there is a lot of sex in this book and I do mean a LOT !! I didn’t mind though, because it was very very hot and even though they do spend most of their time together between the sheets…or against the wall…they do get to know each other. I did witness their feelings for one another grow. 

I could have done with a bit more interaction outside of the bedroom…but that is because I was also curious about the background characters. I am kind of hoping they will get their own story eventually…especially Mark and Jesse. 

There wasn’t a lot of angst in this one. No real push and pull either. Just two guys going at it like rabbits and falling in love in the process…

EXCERPT

“You all right?”

“Yeah, stressed, as usual.”

“Calculus? I can help.”

“Nope, philosophy this time.”

He wrinkled his nose in sympathy, then laced his fingers behind his head. I turned my focus back to the page I was reading, then realized I’d read the same sentence three times in a row. I could feel him watching me, and when I turned my head to check, I was right. His gaze trickled down from the crown of my head to my lap, slow as a drop of water down the glass of the window behind me. My cock jumped in my pants, and I shifted my legs restlessly. The thing needed a leash.

“You want some stress relief?” he offered.

No. It was on the tip of my tongue to say it, because I was frustrated by the whole situation, but fuck, the way he was sitting there so casually, his legs sprawled, his thickening cock starting to push at his fly… I inhaled deeply through my nose, and as I exhaled, found myself saying, “Like what?”

“Not sure yet,” he mused, posture straightening. He moved to the edge of his seat, scooting his chair in closer so he was right next to me, and even though I kind of knew what was coming, I still flinched when he laid his hand over the top of my thigh.

“Not right here,” I said, lowering my voice. But fuck if I didn’t widen my legs in the same breath, a taboo thrill running through me at being in public. Shit, regardless of Eric, I was starting to think I really did have a thing for being watched—or the threat of getting caught, at least.

Eric palmed my crotch, spreading his fingers over the bulge in my gym shorts. His warmth seeped through the silky mesh fabric and woke my cock right the fuck up.

I glanced around. There was no one to either side of us, and behind me was just a bank of windows that looked over the main quad below. But there were a trio of heads in the carrels across from me. I could hear them when they whispered or turned a page in their books, and I had to muffle a growl when Eric tucked his hand behind the waistband of my shorts, grazing his fingertips over my swollen head.

“No?” It was practically a purr, and it rolled over my skin like warm oil and flooded me with furiously spreading heat that tightened my balls.

He took my silence for the assent it was, and I clamped my lower lip between my teeth as he wedged his hand deeper into my shorts and wrapped it around the base of my cock, giving it a sharp, pulsing squeeze that made me suck in a breath.

“Freeballing?”

“Yeah,” I stuttered out, my dick jumping in his hand as he squeezed again.

“Good deal.” He gave me a few light, feathery strokes that had my hips surging up into the contact, and then his hand tightened like a vice around my shaft, thumb tracing my head in a tantalizing sweep as he leaned in. His whisper washed over me like pure, searing desert heat, the ownership in it shooting straight to my core and making me dizzy. “I want that nut you’re working up right now.”

“Fuck,” I hissed so loud that when I glanced up, I could see the person in the carrel across from me trying to subtly peer over the divider.

I hunched over my desktop to conceal the view of Eric’s hand as it plunged deeper, scooping up my balls and kneading them.

“That sounded like a yes to me.”

“Not here,” I whispered again and yanked his hand from my pants. Even though by then, shit, I was definitely seeing the appeal in letting him get me off right there. But I knew I wouldn’t be able to stay quiet enough, and though the thrill of possibly getting caught was hot, the reality of a charge for public indecency was not. I needed some ninja skills for that, or a lot more experience, and the whole novelty of getting off with a dude who knew what the hell he was doing was still so keen-edged that I didn’t have a shot.

“Spoilsport. I was enjoying the challenge, but I guess you’re right.” Eric picked up his sucker again, stuffing the wrapper in his back pocket. “You’re a noisy fucker, so maybe a little more buffer is a good idea. Come on.”

Neve Wilder lives in the southern US, where the summers are hot and the winters are…sometimes cold. She is a mom to three rambunctious weebeasts who have joined forces in a mission to carpet the family home with toys and small items that really suck to step on at six in the morning.

She reads promiscuously across multiple genres, but her favorite stories always contain an element of romance. Incidentally, this is also what she likes to write. Slow-burners with delicious tension? Yes. Whiplash-inducing page-turners, also yes. Down and dirty scorchers? Yes. And every flavor in between.

She believes David Bowie was the sexiest musician to ever live, and she’s always game to nerd out on anything from music to writing.

And finally, she believes that love conquers all. Except the heat index in July. Nothing can conquer that bastard.

Ben wants to find a new home.

Twenty-four-year-old Ben McCormick is the primary caregiver for his brother Milo after their parents’ death. A year into the job, he’s totally got the hang of it. Mostly. Sort of. Not at all?

Defeated and thoroughly chastised for his lack in parenting skills at teacher-parent night, Ben slumps away with the resolve to finally get his life sorted: be a better role model, and sell their parents’ house for a fresh start.

But first, he needs to spruce up his house to hit the market. He’s no DIY king, but Milo’s hot-as-hell woodwork teacher is…

Jack wants an old home to fix.

Thirty-nine-year-old Jack Pecker is waiting for the home of his dreams to come on the market in the summer. What better way to wait the interim months than working on a small renovation gig?

Only trouble is, the gig is for the McCormick brothers. And working in close quarters to red-haired Ben McCormick won’t be easy. Not with the attraction that simmers between them. Attraction Ben makes no effort to hide.

But Jack’s professional. Dating a parent is highly discouraged at Kresley Intermediate, and he’d never cross the lines…

Ben and Jack. Two guys searching for a home – but will they find the perfect one?

I’m a big fan of Anyta Sunday’s work and one of the reasons is the fact that she always knows how to bring on the feels… I also know, that when I open one of her books, I will get the slow burn I crave and the sexual tension that goes with it.

sexual tension gif - Google zoeken

As I said recently in another review, I am one of the few people who loves reading about kids in their books. They are usually really good at breaking the ice, lighting things up a bit and making me laugh out loud.

I absolutely loved the (brotherly) bond between Ben and Milo.

brothers quote - Google zoeken

I can’t imagine what it’s like to lose both your parents and have the care for your sibling as well. I had so much respect for Ben.

Of course, the relationship between Ben and Jack was pretty awesome as well. And even though this book isn’t very heavy on the steam, what’s there is sweet and hot and lovely. The whole book is sweet and lovely.

And so once again, I got to close an Anyta Sunday book, with a big smile on my face 😉

For me, this book felt like a really long epilogue with all the good feels. It was filled with steamy goodness and fluffy scenes. There wasn’t really any angst in this one, at least not between the two of them. 

Halo has to come clean with his family before the rest of the world informs them about their son’s love life, and Viper will be forced to face the past and let go.

Other than that Halo and his Angel are extremely happy and they can’t seem to keep their hands off one another for very long…which was a good thing for me 5d0ea20d51184ba1bb6249faf6f342ba

What had me most intrigued though was Killian’s wandering eye… He just can’t take his eyes off of “Fallen Angel’s” new manager Levi. I can’t wait for their story…I have been a huge Killian fan since the beginning !!! I hope he will be able to corrupt Levi into breaking his rules 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659

One night can change everything… 

Jesse Sykes has lived far longer than his youthful appearance suggests. Becoming a vampire after tragedy struck seemed the only option when his soul was shattered, after all he’s no stranger to having to hide what he is from the rest of the world. But eternal life isn’t without problems or heartache.

With a good job and great friends, Ian Moreton’s life would be almost perfect—if only he wasn’t in love with his best friend. His feelings are unrequited, and in an effort to move on, he takes a chance on a one-night stand with the handsome stranger he meets in a bar.

Jesse knows the risks of becoming attached to a human, but with neither of them looking for anything serious, where’s the harm? At least, that’s what Jesse thinks until his chemistry with Ian proves off the charts. 

A second hook-up solidifies their connection…and brings Jesse to his senses. He scrambles to protect Ian from danger, but it’s already too late. With Ian unwittingly drawn into a world he knows nothing about, events are set in motion that will change both of their lives forever, and it’s up to Jesse to steer them safely through it.

I loved the “Regent Park Pack” series by this author and so I was sure I was gonna love this new “vampire” series as well… I mean what is hotter than a badass vamp ??

This series actually reminded me a lot of the Regent Park series, especially with the way Ian was introduced to the vampire world. 

Now as much as I enjoyed this book…it also really pissed me off because I wanted to kill the villain in this story myself !!!

I actually needed to stop reading a couple of times because I was so angry !! 

Thankfully the MC’s were pretty great as were their BFF’s. Ian and Jesse were very sweet together..and hot…lets not forget hot. I myself would have been upset a bit longer than Ian though, but it’s not like he had any choice in the matter anymore anyway. 

I was a bit disappointed with the steam level plummeting from beginning to end. If it would have been the other way around that would have been fine, but I don’t really like it when a book starts off all hot and ends lukewarm. Especially because I want to see/read about their connection when things are more serious between them !!

I think this first book was a great introduction to this new series and the world of vampires. I myself can’t wait to see what’s next… I hope it’s Raph’s book. Though I have to say that I am a bit upset with him for making such bad decisions. I expect more from a coven leader and so I hope he redeems himself a bit in the upcoming books.  Continue reading

He was only there for a business deal… 
A couple of days…that was all it was supposed to take for property developer Roman Blackwell to decide if the strip of land just south of Dare, Montana would be the perfect spot for his next luxury resort. He wasn’t interested in repairing his frayed relationship with his half-brother who’d moved to the small town a few months earlier and he definitely wasn’t interested in doing anything more than scratching an itch when he checked out the gay club near his hotel. But when his plans for a quick hook-up are waylaid after he steps in to save a young man being brutalized, Roman finds himself building an emotional connection he never saw coming. 

One bad decision changed everything… 
College student Hunter Greene has spent 18 months trying to forget the one night he gave in to temptation and made a decision to hide one lie by telling another. But the guilt of knowing he shattered another young man’s life to protect his own secret shame is slowly destroying him and he knows that soon even his spiral into a dangerous pattern of self-destructive behavior won’t be enough to keep his entire world from imploding. But the last thing he’s looking for is someone to save him. 

But fate works in mysterious ways… 
Forced to return to the town he grew up in, the last person Hunter expects to run into is the mysterious savior who changed everything with one soul-shattering kiss. While he can’t deny his attraction to Roman, Hunter knows that he’ll never be free to act on it and once Roman discovers the terrible secret he’s hiding, it won’t matter anyway. 

Because some things just can’t be forgiven…

This is the fourth book in the series and I have to say that it was a bit more emotional than the previous ones, because it deals with some very sensitive subjects. Having read book 5, “Finding Hope” already, I can say that that one is still the most emotional of them all…and one of my all-time favorites. Still…this one makes a great “second best” when it comes to all the books in this series so far. I still have hope there will be more 😉

Since I’ve read all the books before this one, I already knew who Hunter was and what he did to Finn (book 1). FOTO BEWERKEN - makkelijk online je foto's bewerken of aanpassenI always figured there was more to that story and when I found out what really happened and how Hunter was feeling, my heart broke for him.

He’s 19 years old and he’s refusing to accept his gayness. Reason for this is his fucked up father who has been abusing him and treating him like shit his whole life. Hunter uses self-harm, to calm his panic, feeling pain on the outside makes the pain on the inside fade away…

When Hunter is at a gay bar, he follows a biker into a back room, he figures, if he lets himself be used by the guy, he might not feel these gay urges anymore. But what was supposed to be a one on one, turns into a gang thing and Hunter gets abused by more than just one biker. He doesn’t say no or tries to stop it….he just retracts into himself…feeling numb…feeling nothing.

FOTO BEWERKEN - makkelijk online je foto's bewerken of aanpassen Roman is a developer who’s in town to look a piece of land he wants to buy. He figures going out to gaybar at night is a good idea because he’s been a bit tense about visiting the town his halfbrother lives in (Gray book 3). Maybe if he finds some hot guy to fuck, his stress will lessen…

He wasn’t prepared to walk into a bunch of bikers abusing a young man. When he sees the empty look on the man’s face, he springs into action and kicks their asses. He takes Hunter with him to his hotel room and tries to comfort him. 

One kiss shared between the two of them changes everything…

These two men are both broken and lost in their own ways. One a bit more than the other. Will they be able to mend each other’s broken pieces and will Hunter be able to forgive himself for what he did to Finn…

I really enjoyed this one, I felt so bad for Hunter. I know he made a mistake in the past, but I don’t think he was responsible for other people’s actions. He was just a kid himself and he didn’t have anyone to lean on…Roman was perfect for Hunter.

He was patient and sweet and protective. I really liked the two of them together and I was very proud of how Hunter’s confidence grew and how he finally stood up for himself and Finn.

This book does deal with sensitive subjects, such as non-consensual sex, self-harm, and abuse…
