Shifter and Vampire True Mates story. 

Alek’s older brother, Justice—the Alpha Zenith—was the first shifter to mate with a vampire in many generations, and it was believed the rare, fated pairing would stop at him. But, it hadn’t. Aleksei ‘Alek’ Volkov was second beta, next in succession to the most powerful shifter in the world. He was proud of his title and he took his duties seriously. It was all he had. Until his true mate literally showed up on his doorstep. 

While his brother—the overachiever—excelled at having a vampire as a mate, Alek wasn’t that optimistic he would. He wasn’t averse to love, and he’d often thought of how different his life could’ve turned out if he’d ever experienced the emotion. His life was a mess and he’d worn a mask of stability for a majority of that time, only showing his siblings and pack what they needed to see—a strong Volkov alpha. Not the damaged man he was, with a tortured soul and a rogue wolf. 

Alek dropped his heavy head in his hands. Now, for some reason, I’ve been granted a true vampire mate. And not just any vampire. The intimidating Belleron Liatos. Lord High to the King and the leader of his army. 

Belleron ‘Bell’ Liatos had come to the states for one reason—his best friend and Vampire King, Chadwick Bentley. He certainly didn’t come to be pounced on by a wolf that could act independently of its master. Not only was his destined cherished a complicated and confused man; but he was also unaware of the powerful presence that lurked in the shadows of his soul. Bell didn’t know he’d be the key to unlocking an exceptional triad that would play a critical role in fulfilling the prophesy. 

This story DOES NOT contain or even mention MPREG. 
No multiple pairings. No cliffhangers. Ends with a very HFN.

It has been some time since I have read the first book in this series Prophesy which I enjoyed a lot. Thankfully as soon as I started reading this one, everything about the first book came back to me. I love when that happens. I also remembered how bad I wanted to read Alek and Belleron’s story…and let me tell you, I was not disappointed !!

so good gif - Google zoeken

This book starts exactly where the last when left us, and just so you know…it can NOT be read as a stand-alone. You won’t understand what the hell is happening, so if you want to read this series, start with the book 1 !! 

Last time we saw Alek and Bell, things were quite strained… with Alek pretty much throwing (read attacking) himself at Bell. 

Alek has always wanted a mate…to find someone to truly love him, and he can’t believe that fate has given him a chance in the form of Lord High vampire, Belleron Liatos. But how can he be the perfect “beloved” when he is in fact so broken inside… Broken into three separate pieces to be exact. How can he ever explain all that he is to his one true love…

And there is no way he will be able to hide/supress his inner being(s)

Bell was pretty surprised, finding out his “beloved” turned out to be a shifter with apparent control issues. What he is even more surprised about.. is what he sees lurking when he looks into the eyes of his love…and how much it’s pulling him in. 

I loved this series when I started it, but I love it even more now. It is exactly what I look for in a shifter/vampire story. It kept me at the edge of my seat while still making me laugh and swoon. I even cried a little tear!

If you love vampires and shifters as much as I do, then you should definitely give this one a try. I was a bit surprised with the medium steam-level because I am used to the very steamy “Nothing Special” series by A.E. Via. No worries though, there is still some very nice sexing going on !!

I myself can’t wait for the next book which I am sure (read hope) will be Mac’s.

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.

ipad on fire gif - Google zoeken

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…

I loved it, and if you are a fan of reading fluffy, funny sweet and extremely HOT gay sex, then you should really give this one a go !!

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.”

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.

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

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2274927992829701

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.”

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 !!!

Lips-PNG-FileBLURB

Dr. Hong-Wei Wu has come to Copper Point, Wisconsin, after the pressures of a high-powered residency burned him out of his career before he started. Ashamed of letting his family down after all they’ve done for him, he plans to live a quiet life as a simple surgeon in this tiny northern town. His plans, however, don’t include his outgoing, kind, and attractive surgical nurse, Simon Lane.

Simon wasn’t ready for the new surgeon to be a handsome charmer who keeps asking him for help getting settled and who woos him with amazing Taiwanese dishes. There’s no question—Dr. Wu is flirting with him, and Simon is flirting back. The problem is, St. Ann’s has a strict no-dating policy between staff, which means their romance is off the table… unless they bend the rules. 

But a romance that keeps them—literally—in the closet can’t lead to happy ever after. Simon doesn’t want to stay a secret, and Hong-Wei doesn’t want to keep himself removed from life, not anymore. To secure their happiness, they’ll have to change the administration’s mind. But what other secrets will they uncover along the way, about Copper Point… and about each other?

When I saw that Heidi Cullinan was releasing a brand spanking new series I jumped on it. She is after all the author of my “all-time favorite” Carry The Ocean, and let’s not forget “hot as balls Dirty Laundry. All the reasons for me to give this one a go 😉

because reasons gif - Google zoeken

Now as much as I enjoyed reading this story, it didn’t blow me away like “Carry the Ocean” did. I don’t think anything ever will, so I am just gonna accept this fact. What I did love about this book was the “hospital setting“. I devour hospital series like crazy and so this was right up my alley.

hospital series gif - Google zoeken

Hong-Wei is a new surgeon (read wonder doctor) at the hospital where Simon works as a nurse. It is pretty much love at first sight. I am not a huge fan of “insta-love” but I tried not to let it bother me too much.

The problem with falling in love with a co-worker/superior is the fact that it’s against hospital policy. I myself am all for breaking the rules…but I can understand that your job is somewhat important fcc37b1805a49c13a3f7d3d50b64ed47

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.

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 😉

This is the third book in the “Fallen Angel” series and it starts exactly where the previous book left us… with Viper and Halo declaring their love for one another in front of the entire worldfcc37b1805a49c13a3f7d3d50b64ed47

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

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 ?? 

absolutely nothing gif - Google zoeken

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…

Jaydenkiss's uploaded images - Imgur

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. 

 photo ff660180951cdbbf4db2425a9b4b6510_zpscetpn2ea.jpg

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…

Trevan Bean has a job that’s going from illegal to frightening, a boyfriend who may not be in his right mind, and a guardian angel who might actually be evil incarnate. Add to that the reappearance of his boyfriend’s estranged family, death threats, kidnapping, and the struggle of saving money to realize a dream, and Trevan has a lot on his plate. But Trevan is up to the challenge: he promised Landry a happily ever after, and Landry’s going to have it if it kills him!

It just might.

Landry Carter was a broken doll when they met two years ago but has grown into a partner who can stand at Trevan’s side… most of the time. Now that Trevan’s life just got scary—and Landry just got himself kidnapped—Trevan has to hope Landry’s love stays strong through this newest challenge, because the happily ever after won’t happen if Trevan has to go it alone.

Well get on board the crazy train and read this book, because even though it’s ridiculous and the characters are all crazy as fuck…this book was awesome !!

 photo CrazytrainLG_zpstqft4lht.gif

I don’t even know how to explain what this book is about, but I will try and give you some idea.

Trevan and Landry have been in a relationship for 2 years. I thought it was kinda nice to read a book about an already established couple.
Trevan is a money runner for a big-time bookie and Landry (former man-whore) just opened his own jewelry shop. Nothing weird yet right…

Their relationship, however, is not what I would describe…very healthy. They are extremely possessive of one another and especially Landry needs constant reassurance. At one point Trevan wakes up with Landry standing over him…jerking off while holding a knife. 

His answer as to what he’s gonna do with the knife is..

speech_marks_left_red (4)r Gonna carve my name on your skin, so everyone knows you’re mine”

… Later on, we get to know a little bit more about Landry, and why he is the way he is… He’s not really right in the head, that’s for sure and there were moments that he annoyed me, but I still loved him anyway 😉 How could I not…

 photo alice-in-wonderland-mad-crazy-bonkers_zpsehjhfcp1.gif

Now this is a Mary Calmes book, so all this weird ott stuff starts happening. I absolutely loved every second of it !! We get some estranged weird as fuck family members who come back into play, changes at work because of people getting killed off and of course a kidnapping…

Then there is also Trev’s guardian angel, aka his shadow who keeps protecting him..Conrad, the hitman. Damn, but I loved that guy. He has his own book now and I highly suggest you read it 😉

my advice gif - Google zoeken

This book was very different from the Matter of Time series, yet in some way it still reminded me of it. Especially the ott happenings, and the way Landry seemed to be able to fix everything… and let’s not forget how most people liked him on sight. That’s okay by me though, because the Matter of Time series is my absolute favorite…No one will ever replace Jory !!:P

This book wasn’t drenched in sex, but what was there was very hot and even though the MC’s were very much insane, they really made it work between the two of them. I think they were perfect for each other!

Aaron Costa’s summer was all planned. Despite having to remodel the family lake house, it would be a vacation of sorts, and he had every intention of enjoying it—until the friend who was supposed to help him got injured and left him in a lurch. He decides to take the opportunity to bond with his son and hires Julian and his roommate, Malachi, to assist. 

As a broke college student, Malachi could use the money, and spending the summer with Aaron for eye candy sounds like a dream. “Look but don’t touch” becomes his motto. But when Julian starts flaking on his responsibilities and Malachi and Aaron are forced to spend long hours alone together, their mutual attraction is impossible to resist. 

Aaron can’t fight the temptation sexy Malachi presents. But more than their age difference stands in their way, not the least of which is Aaron’s semi-closeted status and the fact that he’s never openly discussed his sexuality with his son. He has no idea how Julian will react when he learns his father is not only gay, he’s also dating his best friend.

I already read the second book, so I thought I would give this one a try. Damn, I’m glad I did. This was one sexy little read !! I am still recovering 😛

 photo 9474828_zpspfiby6r9.gif

So… Aaron, 37, is the father of Julian who’s 21. He has his own construction company and yes…he’s gay.

When Aaron was young he fooled around with his best friend some and the end result was Julian. They didn’t stay together, but they are still best friends and they’ve raised Julian together. Julian’s mom has been in a relationship with another man for a very long time and they all get along really well. There is just one tiny little issue…Aaron has never told his son he’s gay (stupid stupid stupid)

idiot award gif - Google zoeken

Malachi (I really don’t like that name) is Julians best friend and roommate. He’s also 21 and yes…he’s gay as well. He also has a major thing for older guys.

Aaron is spending the summer renovating his parents’ house at the lake and when his best friend Blake (book 2) calls and tells him he won’t be able to come and help, Aaron calls his son Julian. He thinks it would be a perfect opportunity to have some quality bonding time with his son.

Julian agrees but wants to bring his best friend Malachi with him…Malachi needs the money and Aaron needs all the help he can get.

Well, you know what happens next….instant attraction !! 

sparks gif - Google zoeken

Aaron tries to stay away at first because Malachi is only 21… and his son’s best friend. But when Julian decides to go and party instead of helping with work….that leaves Aaron and Malachi with a lot of alone time. 
So these two start to heat up the sheets together…..and damn were they hot !!

 photo tumblr_m2pf0a6f2U1qdjm6ho1_500_zpspxyiumol.gif

After some time sneaking around and having some really hot sex, they start having feelings for one another. They both know it’s not just meaningless fucking anymore.

One day they get a bit too bold and decide to make good use of the pool table. Julian was not happy when he came in, and got a nice view of his best friends ass….an ass occupied by his father’s dick !!

 photo 57416762_zpsllzdh480.jpg

Now I know Julian was acting like a whiny little bitch almost the entire time…and Aaron was a bit of a doormat where his son was concerned…but still, that shit was fucked up.

I think Julian had every right to be pissed off and traumatized. I would not want to walk in on my father like that…doesn’t even matter if it’s with one of my male or female friends. So Malachi’s ignorant reaction, saying it was none of Julian’s business what they were doing…I call bullshit on that one. If one of my best friends would fuck my dad..I would kick their ass…twice !!!

kick their ass gif - Google zoeken

I also call bullshit on Malachi saying that Aaron didn’t have to come out to his son, because it was his right to keep it a secret. But that’s my personal opinion. How can you teach your kids not to lie and to always be yourself, but then lie yourself and act as if you’re ashamed of who you are. 

be proud of who you are gif - Google zoeken

Things with Julian were fixed a bit too fast for my liking. It wasn’t very realistic. One minute he’s pissed off and the next he almost forces his dad on a plane to go after Malachi. 

I would have enjoyed/appreciated it more if it would have taken more time for Julian to forgive his dad and come to terms with everything. That may sound harsh, but I for one would not have forgiven my dad that fast for lying to me and sneaking around with my best friend. I also don’t think I could forgive my best friend for not talking to me about it. Sure Julian was a bit of a brat, but I don’t think his “brattiness” had anything to do with this.

Anyway…now that I’m done ranting…I did loved reading this one. It was very interesting and very nice on the steam !

Sometimes you have to get dirty to come clean.

When muscle-bound Denver Rogers effortlessly dispatches the frat boys harassing grad student Adam Ellery at the Tucker Springs laundromat, Adam’s thank-you turns into impromptu sex over the laundry table. The problem comes when they exchange numbers. What if Adam wants to meet again and discovers Denver is a high-school dropout with a learning disability who works as a bouncer at a local gay bar? Or what if Denver calls Adam only to learn while he might be brilliant in the lab, outside of it he has crippling social anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder?

Either way, neither of them can shake the memory of their laundromat encounter. Despite their fears of what the other might think, they can only remember how good the other one feels. The more they get together, the kinkier things become. They’re both a little bent, but in just the right ways. 

Maybe the secret to staying together isn’t to keep things clean and proper. Maybe it’s best to keep their laundry just a little bit dirty.

I have no idea why I waited so long to read this one, since plenty of my friends have recommended it to me ages ago. Guess it’s mostly a case of so many books and so little time. Still, it’s not a good excuse since Heidi Cullinan did write one of my all-time favorites “Carry the Ocean“. So shame on me !!

https://www.google.com/search?q=shame on me gif

Now I am gonna admit that I am not a huge BDSM fan (I make some exceptions), but I am a fan of kinky, dirty sex and most especially….”dirty talk“, and let me tell you, I got plenty in this one !!!

speech_marks_left_red (4)rYeah. You like me looking at you like this, don’t you, all naked in the middle of nowhere, playing with your hole. Don’t you.speech_marks_left_red (4)r4

I really liked Adam, and he was so cute. I could understand life being a struggle for him. My heart really broke for him a few times… It also really pissed me off !!

So meeting Denver is really such an awesome thing for Adam… Adam has some issues of his own to deal with but being with Adam is the best thing for him. They are so amazing for each other…oh and HOT…did I mention HOT yet ??

When Geo signs up for Family Camp, he envisions nature hikes, s’mores, and a chance to win over his recalcitrant new foster kids, Jayden and Lucy. He’s tried to become a dad for so long, and he hopes the three of them can be the family he’s always wanted. What he doesn’t anticipate is the prickly and gorgeous camp counselor who constantly comes to his rescue.

Travis spends a week every year at Camp Evermore, the camp his adoptive parents own. As a pro baseball player, his presence guarantees a full campground and excited campers. He has one rule: never, ever mess around with anyone at camp. His profession demands he stay in the closet. But one sweet and funny new dad is about to test all his resolve.

Sparks fly for Geo and Travis, and not because of the nightly campfire. Having been a foster kid himself, Travis is drawn to Geo’s sincerity and big heart and to his kids. The four of them just fit. But will this be a summer romance? Or can they find a way to be a family long after Family Camp is over?

The Daddy Dearest series will consist of stand-alone contemporary novels focusing on single gay dads who find hot romance. Expect laughs, sweet and sexy slow-burn romance, and lots of family feels!

I am a huge Eli Easton fan, and so I have read and loved plenty of her books, with Five Dares, being my favorite so far. Now I may be one of the few people who actually does enjoy reading about kids in my romance books. Most of the time the little brats are funny as hell and they are wonderful tension breakers 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659So yeah, saying I was excited about this one, is putting it mildly.

I can gladly say that I was not disappointed !! This book was awesome…as were the kids fcc37b1805a49c13a3f7d3d50b64ed47 What made it even more fun for me was the fact that my son is named Jayden as well…and so I had no choice but to love him 7e6c22cc4c29adb0f4a619d0806b71f1

Now this book is all sorts of cute and sweet….and lets not forget HOT.

I had the best of time reading it and I did most of it with a huge smile on my face.

Geo was really trying to be a great dad to his new foster kids and I admired the hell out of him for doing so. There was a small misunderstanding between Geo and Travis in the beginning but thankfully things got resolved pretty quickly. There is some angst in this one…be it small mostly revolving around Travis’ sexuality. 

I really needed something light and sweet after reading some very heavy books and this one definitely delivered. I can’t wait to see what’s next 😉

Highly recommended !!

Excerpt

Sixth inning. Geo was ready for the game to be over. It was fucking hot on the ball field, all open and exposed, the sun baking down. And he was also not sure how much more Travis-watching he could take—him with his silky burgundy gym shorts and a sweaty Camp Evermore green shirt stretched over those muscles. His long legs were tanned and well-defined from hours at the gym.

Those thighs could fucking crack walnuts. Dude.

Damn, but that was one fine-looking man. Geo knew he should lay off, though. Travis had made himself clear.

Only he hadn’t. At all. One minute, Travis seemed into him him. He sought out Geo’s company, like the way he kept coming by the cabin at night. And the next minute, he’d put distance between them, ignoring Geo or closing himself off behind a granite-like expression and those eye-hiding shades. And Travis had laid a clear line in the sand. Not at camp. Not gonna happen.

Yup. That was fine. Sure, Geo hadn’t been mutually attracted to a guy that hot in ages. Or ever, really. But Geo hadn’t come to camp to fool around. He had other priorities.

It did make him wonder though. Bridget had said Travis wasn’t out. A quick Google search last night had confirmed that. In fact, Geo had been shocked to discover there’d never been an out baseball player in the major leagues. Like, in the history of American baseball. Which was tragic. No wonder Travis was in the closet. It had to suck monkey balls living like that. Especially with all the women who threw themselves at him constantly. There were a dozen women on the sidelines right now that looked ready to have his babies. That had to be weird for a gay guy. Didn’t it?

Geo himself was always super uncomfortable when women came on to him. He felt compelled to blurt out “I’m gay!” in the first five minutes. It was just too weird otherwise.

Then again, Travis’s love life was none of Geo’s business. Maybe the guy was bisexual. Maybe he liked dating women just fine.

Jayden came up to bat. Geo focused on his son, clapping hard. “Come on, Jayden! You’ve got this!”

Jayden took a wide stance beside the plate, both hands gripping the bat, choked up a little. Travis had spent a few minutes with Jayden at the start of the game, showing him how to stand, and Jayden copied him exactly. The kid was a great mimic. He’d been nervous at first, tense and defensive. But by now he just looked focused. He stared, narrow-eyed, at Frank as Frank pitched an easy ball.

Geo loved that about this game, that everyone tried to give the kids easy wins, and no one took the competition seriously.

Jayden hit the ball hard. It flew through the air a short ways then plonked to the ground and skipped along fast. It was heading right down the center line, though a bit more towards third base and Travis’s side of the field.

“Go Jayden! Go!” Geo shouted. He went after the ball. In his peripheral vision, he saw Jayden round first base and keep running.

Travis was going after the ball too, dodging low. He scooped it up. He was going to throw it to third base, keep Jayden back on second. Geo couldn’t let that happen.

He dove in front of Travis, crowding him, holding an arm out to block Travis from throwing the ball.

Travis snorted, bemused. “What are you doing? You’re on my team.” He backed up, trying to get away from Geo.

“Blood before bros, man,” Geo said with fake seriousness. He kept up with Travis, step for step, grabbing Travis’s right arm in a firm grip so he couldn’t raise the ball.

“Stop it!” Travis laughed. “Dork. That’s not legal.”

“Don’t care.”

They took three steps back, like they were dancing. Geo held Travis’s right arm, staring him down. Travis met his gaze, a goofy smile on his lips. Back and back they stumbled. Suddenly, Travis got a sparkle in his eyes. He wrapped his left arm around Geo’s waist and picked him up, swinging him around so he ended up behind Travis.

Geo was still finding his feet as Travis drew back his arm and sent the ball sailing.

Right to home plate. But Jayden got there first. Umpire Cindy made the motion with her hands, safe.

Geo laughed and raised his arms in triumph. “Yeah, baby! Great job, Jayden! Home run, whoo!”

Then he realized everyone was staring at them. On the sidelines, there were a dozen cameras raised, filming.

Oh. Er. Hmm. Geo wiped his face, feeling sheepish.

That’s when a piercing scream rent the air.

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

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

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

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

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

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

Too bad fate feels like screwing with them once again…

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

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

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

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

Excerpt

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

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

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

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

They’d nearly lost Rowe to his grief.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Lips-PNG-File BLURB

From the outside, it looks as if college football quarterback Kingston Bentley has it all—good looks, outstanding athletic ability and a 4.0 average in his classes. But looks can be deceiving. Kingston is battling inner demons that are jeopardizing his safety and slowly driving him to more and more acts of desperation. Everywhere he looks, he’s got nothing but trouble, and when he loses his coveted first-string position on the football team, he goes back to the one thing he can count on—cutting to relieve the pressure and the emotional pain.

The gorgeous new quarterback on the team, Memphis Sabine, is the Coach’s son, and under enormous pressure of his own to lead his new team to the national championship. For that, he needs Kingston’s help, and they soon become an unbeatable force both on the field. But when Memphis discovers Kingston in the act of cutting, he uses his forceful nature and all he knows about being a Dom to take Kingston in hand and ensure his welfare. Kingston loves the pain, but he rebels against the idea of being Memphis’s sub. As Kingston begins his training, however, Memphis discovers just how fragile their relationship really is, and how desperately he needs to help Kingston deal with the secrets from his past.

It is not a secret that BDSM isn’t one of my favorite tropes, it has to be really nicely done, for me to give it a go or even “love” it. I usually avoid it, because it just isn’t really my thing.  T.S. McKinney is really my thing though fcc37b1805a49c13a3f7d3d50b64ed47 , and I gladly make an exception when it comes to her books. Case in point… theGame Dayseries, which are two of my favorite books. She has a way of making me love something that I would normally shy away from. Gotta give credit where it’s due !!

This book reminded me a bit of “Touchdown” actually.

Kingston is the envy of college. He is very handsome, the star quarterback, an awesome student, and an actual nice person… Who wouldn’t want to be him ?? Well…looks can be deceiving and in this case, Kingston is slowly withering away inside. When an incident in college makes it even worse, taking away some of the things he worked so hard for, he resolves to the only way he has left to make himself feel better…

But when shit goes down…it goes down fast and so Kingston is caught in the act by none other than Memphis …his nemesis and the one who took his place on the field…

Memphis already knows one of Kingston’s secrets and so Kingston is freaked out by how much information (read blackmail) Memphis has on him.

Seeing Kingston hurt himself has the dom inside Memphis bristling. He wants nothing more than to care for and protect Kingston and give him what he really needs… A dom to submit to

And so it begins…

I really enjoyed this story. The moment I started, I knew I was gonna finish it in one go. Another zombie night for me, but it was well worth it. I loved both characters and my heart hurt for Kingston. His father was one of the evilest men I have ever met…what a douche. Not that Memphis’ father was that much better…I hated his guts too !!

The BDSM was very nicely done I think. Extra credit to Ben and Memphis’ uncle, they were pretty awesome as well. This is a bit of an insta-love book. I am normally not a fan, but for some reason, it didn’t bother me as much with this one. Maybe because I really wanted Kingston to have someone in his life who loved him.

Even though I really enjoyed this one and I hope there will be more…I can’t give it 5 stars. Reason being that I felt there was something missing. I know this is a BDSM book and I understand that most of the book is in fact about that, but I had hoped there would have been more about their classes, and football and friends…

I love sports in books and after reading the blurb, I just expected lots of football “stuff”. They only spend one scene on the field together and that’s it when it comes to the “football” in this book. I also missed them coming out to the college team or Memphis’ family… It was all skipped over and I am a bit confused whether they ever really came out together or not…

Still really loved it though and I will have to keep my eye out and see if there is gonna be more…because I could do with some more 9f01372377900d9203bc4efe48eb1659

EXCERPT

I took hold of his wrist and held on, squeezing a little. “Who’s in charge here, fireball?”

I could see it trembling on the tip of his tongue to cuss me out and tell me to go to hell. His eyes got stormy and his face sullen, but I waited him out, pressing his wrist harder. “I’m waiting for an answer. I thought we’d already decided this last night. Now who’s in charge here?”

Finally, after what seemed like hours, but was really only a few, long seconds, he dropped his gaze. “You are,”he said, grudgingly. I loved his little hesitations. They told me this was hard for him, but he was doing it anyway, because I’d told him to.

“That’s right,”I said, my voice soft and coaxing. Sometimes it felt like I was encouraging some wild animal to come out of its hiding place in the shadows. “And what is it you have to worry about today?”

He looked up at me, a little blank at first, and then he got a nervous look in his eyes, like he’d forgotten something. I sighed and said, “The answer is nothing. You don’t have to worry about a damn thing because I got this for both of us. I’m making the decisions now and all you have to do is go along for the ride.”
