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

This author has once again blown me away and I can’t wait for more !!

Highly recommended 😉

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.”

Lips-PNG-FileBlurb

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 !!!

Take is the fifth book in the amazing “Deliver” series. Now let me start this review, by saying that this book can and should not be read as a stand-alone. If you want to really enjoy this series, you should go back and start reading with Deliver #1, and slowly…or fast…work your way down to this awesome read. Trust me…you won’t be sorry. 

trust me gif - Google zoeken

This is definitely a dark romance series and each and every book has some major triggers… That also goes for this one. I am not gonna mention them all, but I did want to give you a little warning in case “dark” isn’t really your thing.  

Those of you who have already started this series, already know Kate from the previous books. She has been through hell and back and now she is still struggling to move on. Too bad that hell doesn’t seem to be finished with her just yet and decides to screw with her once again…using Tiago Badell, to do so. 

https://www.facebook.com/pamgodwinbooks/photos/a.469683773068519/2090357974334416/?type=3

I really don’t want to say anything that could possibly spoiler this book. It should be read blindly I think… So I am gonna keep my review short and simple. 

Tiago has definitely become one of my favorite anti-heroes, though he still has to take a little bit of a back seat to Van Quiso….then again…I don’t think anyone will ever be able to top him in my book !! That said… Tiago was all sorts of hot, darkbroody and disturbed. Just how I like my men 😛

Kate tries her very best to hate every part of his being…but it isn’t all that easy. Not everything is as black and white as she would like it to be. Could it be she is actually developing feelings for this monster…or is she suffering from a case of “Stockholm syndrome”. 

One smile, and he could be mistaken as human, A hot-as-fuck human with the capacity to shift and melt things inside her.

This story really pushes against some boundaries, it definitely pushed some of mine…but I gobbled it all up, like the good little girl that I am fcc37b1805a49c13a3f7d3d50b64ed47

Kate really is my kind of heroine. She was so strong, but she also excepted her weaknesses…she was no push-over, but she knew not to push beyond the limits. I admired the fact, that even with everything she has been trough…she still had the ability to look further…to see beyond the outside.

She saw a heart worthy enough to take

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

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.

When raven shifter Riley Porter was given sanctuary by the Phoenix Pack, she let them believe she had left her flock. Reluctant to divulge the secrets of her past, she was still embraced as family. Only Tao Lukas, the protective and passionate Head Enforcer of the pack, was resistant to the enigmatic shifter. Until Riley started to arouse in him something other than suspicion.

Tao doesn’t trust lone shifters, especially ones so guarded—and tempting. But the sexual tension between them is making them both come undone, and vulnerable to more than desire. All Tao wants is for Riley to stay with him and to trust him with the truth of her past.

As Riley’s mysteries come to light, so does a danger that threatens not only her life but the safety of the entire pack. For Tao, keeping Riley safe means keeping her close—forever—as his mate.

As some of you know, I don’t read as many MF books as I used to anymore. That’s because I am pretty picky when it comes to them.  I will always read a book written by Suzanne Wright though because she has always been one of my favorite MF authors. I have read almost all her books and I will continue to do so in the future. What can I say…I am a huge fan !!!

superhero-movie-gifs-incredibles-animated-disney-gifs.gif (500×208)

I have known Tao, since he was introduced in the first book of the Phoenix series. I have always wanted to know more about the Head Enforcer of the Phoenix pack.

FOTO BEWERKEN - makkelijk online je foto's bewerken of aanpassen:  latest (500×564)

Riley, a raven shifter, has only recently (previous book) moved to the Phoenix pack. She was taken in by the pack because she came with two young shifter children, who were given sanctuary by the pack.

blue-hair.jpg (450×450):  tumblr_nt6tiwiCjG1qbp4fzo1_500.gif (500×281)

These didn’t start off on the right foot. Tao strongly distrusts strangers, especially lone shifters and he didn’t want Riley anywhere near his pack. That doesn’t mean he didn’t think she was hot though.

After Riley has spent some time with the pack, Tao slowly starts to trust her and even like her….he was already very attracted to her, so now…he just needs to make a move…which is exactly what he does.

ba631a34db3caac6f26a23acb57f0a43 (480×232)

Riley loves nothing more than antagonizing Tao. It brings her and her raven much pleasure. She can’t deny being very attracted to the man though…So once the ice is broken and Tao suggests they take things a bit further, Riley figures…why the hell not. It’s not like it’s anything serious…….

I really liked Riley. It is always very hard for me to like a heroine, which is why I am such a big fan of this series and the other ones written by this author. She writes about very strong females, who don’t take shit from anyone. Riley was funny and kickass.

“You better hope you are never on fire, Tao, because I’m more likely to relax and pull out some marshmallows than to help you.”

Everyone who has read Suzanne Wright’s books, knows that they are extremely HOT. This one was no exception. I was, as usual, blushing my way through this one.

“I’ll fuck you in every way I can have you. And then I’ll do it again and again.”

giphy.gif (500×281)

There is a whole background story going on, about Riley’s former flock but I don’t want to spoiler the whole book. It’s best to read it for yourself. These books can be read as stand alone’s, though you wouldn’t know all the side-characters (and there are plenty), so I would advise reading the whole series. You won’t be sorry 😉

I myself hope there will be plenty more books in this series and all the others. No one does shifters, vampires and demons like Suzanne Wright does 😉

I am a big fan of L.J. Shen’s work and so I loved reading the “Sinners of Saint” series. In light of her new series “All Saints High” almost coming out, I figured I would do a re-read of all the books so everything is fresh in my mind. Now imagine my surprise (read: shock) when I found out I never read Jamie’s story !!! I just don’t understand how this happened !!

in shock gif - Google zoeken

Of course, when I found out (a few hours ago), I put everything else aside and fixed the error of my ways… Normally I would be thankful this was a short story, but we are talking “HotHoles” here and so I was just sad when I was finished so soon.

Since I already read every book in this series, I knew exactly who Jaime was and that Melody was his former teacher. I was so happy to finally find out how they got together…better late than never 😉 

finally gif - Google zoeken

It was sooo good. Melody is a 26-year-old English Lit teacher at All Saints High. This makes her 8 years older than the “Hotholes“, who are all in one of her classes. And somewhere along the way, she has caught the attention of one of them specifically… Jamie …7e6c22cc4c29adb0f4a619d0806b71f1

Melody isn’t really happy with her job. She is trying to teach a bunch of privileged kids, who make it a mission not to listen to anything she says. To make matters worse, the principal of the school, who is also Jamie’s mother, is a cold-hearted bitch seemingly trying to get her fired. Not that being a teacher was ever her dreamjob…she wanted to be a dancer, but life isn’t always fair.

You know what also isn’t fair….One of your students trying to blackmail you for sex because you wrecked his car 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659 Jamie makes it perfectly clear what it is he wants from Melody. I just don’t think it really classifies as blackmail …since she seems to want it just as much. 

17892486.gif (500×206)

I loved these two. This book was definitely a bit on the lighter side compared to all the others. Melody’s inner voice was hilarious and she really is “my kind of girl”. I can understand why Jamie wanted her so badly. That said…Jamie was pretty freaking awesome himself !!

I can’t wait for “Pretty Reckless” to get here. I know Daria is gonna be the heroine and she is Jamie and Melody’s daughter. I am sure she will be just as awesome as her parents.

Highly recommended

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 😉

come to momma gif - Google zoeken

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 !!

a dream come true gif - Google zoeken

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.

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.”

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!

Massive world tours. Over a hundred million albums sold. Groupies galore. 
Every day is a party for Viper and the guys of TBD, the biggest rock band in the world. But it all comes to a screeching halt when the lead singer walks out of the studio one day and never comes back. 

Ear-blistering vocals. Butchered lyrics. Fame chasers. 
After months of lackluster auditions, Viper, the lead guitarist and resident bad boy of the group, is ready to find solace in the bottom of a bottle. Time’s running out and the pressure’s on to find a new singer, but it isn’t until an angel walks through the door that the band’s prayers are answered. 

Charismatic. Talented. Magic behind the mic. Halo is everything they’ve been looking for. 
With a voice to match his stunning good looks, it isn’t long before Viper’s taking notice. But there are several reasons this is a bad idea: 

1. Interpersonal relationships in the band are discouraged
 
2. Viper has already broken rule #1—big mistake
 
3. Halo is straight
 

Too bad Viper’s body isn’t listening to his head—at least not the one on his shoulders. But you can’t fake chemistry, not onstage and certainly not off it, and Viper and Halo? They have it in spades. 

As both men try to resist the fire blazing between them, and the band is forced to reinvent themselves, it’ll be a complicated rise back to the top. But from the ashes of what was, something beautiful is born. Something better. And when the world finally sees Halo stretch his wings, they’ll discover what it’s like to fall for an angel.

This book came at a perfect time for me. It was exactly what I needed. I, like so many am a huge fan of the Temptation series and this book did kind of remind of Logan and Tate This time we get rockstars though, a trope I really love. We even get double the fun, because it’s two rockstars falling for each other !!

I started reading this book and I just couldn’t stop and put it down. I have zombie face right now because of it 😉

The writing style was just so pleasant and I fell in love with both MC’s the moment I met them. Not to mention the side characters who were pretty amazing as well.

Halo is auditioning for the role of lead singer, for a pretty famous rock band TBD. Their old lead singer just up and left, leaving the band in a tight spot (read A Little bit like Desire” )

Viper the lead guitarist knows he’s in the trouble the moment he sets his eyes on Halo. Viper is definitely a bit of a bad boy and I loved him all the more for it. He knows Halo is supposedly straight but that won’t stop him from pursuing the man. Viper isn’t one for hiding and sneaking around and so he is pretty straightforward and loud in his pursuit (constant flirting/innuendos).

One thing is for sure though…Viper is confusing the hell out of Halo. How can he be attracted to a man all of a sudden ??!! He is though, there is no denying the huge tent in his pants 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659

It takes a bit of time, but when these two get together, there are definite fireworks…yowza !!

This book doesn’t end on the major cliffy I was worried about. That said, I can’t wait to read the next one. This book was everything I needed at the moment and I hope time is gonna fly 😉

Highly recommended

Wendys Wycked Review

I first read this book in 2017 and I have re-read it a couple of times since then. I’ve come to love A.E. Via’s books.

So far they haven’t disappointed me, and I always feel truly entertained. Sure more often than not they are a bit OTT, but I kinda like it that way! Continue reading

Lips-PNG-File Synopsis

Kill Switch, an all-new standalone dark romantic suspense by Penelope Douglas.

 

WINTER

Sending him to prison was the worst thing I could’ve done. It didn’t matter that he did the crime or that I wished he was dead. Perhaps I thought I’d have time to disappear before he got out or he’d cool off in jail and be anything but the horror he was.

But I was wrong. Three years came and went too fast, and now he’s anything but calm. Prison only gave him time to plan. And while I anticipated his vengeance, I didn’t expect this.

He doesn’t want to make me hurt. He wants to make everything hurt.

DAMON

First thing’s first. Get rid of her daddy. He told them I forced her. He told them his little girl was a victim, but I was a kid, too, and she wanted it just as much as I did.

Step two… Give her, her sister, and her mother nowhere to run and no fuel to escape. The Ashby women are alone now and desperate for a knight in shining armor.

But that’s not what’s coming.

No, it’s time I listened to my father and took control of my future. It’s time I showed them all—my family, her family, my friends—that I will never change and that I have no other ambition than to be the nightmare of their lives.

Starting with her.

She’ll be so scared, she won’t even be safe in her own head by the time I’m done with her. And the best part is I won’t have to break into her home to do it.

As the new man of the house I have all the keys.

Kill Switch is suitable for readers 18+. While it can be read as a stand-alone, all of the characters are developed throughout the series. The first two books, Corrupt and Hideaway, are now available through Kindle Unlimited!

First things first. This is a series of short books (around 100 pgs each) about the same awesome couple. These books can not be read as stand alone and they should be read in order, starting with the first book Will & Patrick Wake up Married. You can also binge read them in the Wake Up Married Serial 1-6.  I have read them all separately back to back…and damn, I’m gonna miss Will and Patrick….mostly Patrick 😉 Continue reading

Normally I write reviews for each book separately, but for this series, I have decided to write just one review for the whole series. This is not because I don’t think this series isn’t worth more reviews, because it surely is. It is actually one of my all-time favorite MM series. But it is also best to read it with as little spoilers as possible, and so I don’t want to ruin the experience for any reader, with my babbling. Just trust me when I say that it is absolutely awesome !!! Continue reading

If you’ve read the first book in this series, More Than This, then you should be very aware of who Logan is. If you haven’t… stop what you are doing and go read it… now !! Things will make much more sense if you read book 1 first. 

Logan is Jake’s friend and he is an awesome cocky bastard !! He doesn’t sugarcoat and what you see is what you get… and boy did I like what I saw 5d0ea20d51184ba1bb6249faf6f342ba Continue reading

Let me start out by saying that these books should not be read as a stand-alone. You need to start at the beginning or you might get confused. I also know that in order to read the third book in this series, Kill Switch, which is coming out on February 11th, you need to have read “Corrupt“. So in case you haven’t, go back now and get on with it 😉  Continue reading
