BLURB

Brandon Gilbert has spent years in hiding, but he’s finally accomplished his dream of working as a public school teacher. When offered the chance to help bullied children, there was no way he could say no. Not to mention that meeting Dr. Tash Weber, the psychiatrist who helps them, a sad yet sexy older man, ignited a spark inside Brandon he’d never had before.

Though five years have passed since the death of his lover, Dr. Sebastian “Tash” Weber has no interest in relationships or love. But young, enigmatic Brandon awakens his heart and his desire. Despite Tash’s best efforts to push him away, Brandon unlocks the passion for life Tash thought he’d lost forever.

Falling in love wasn’t part of the plan for either Brandon or Tash, but neither family disapproval nor self-doubts can stop them from embracing the fire that burns between them. And when Brandon returns home to fight for a future he never imagined possible, he and Tash discover that the one thing worth fighting for has been with them all along.

Jenn Review

5 Stars

I absolutely love this series, so packed with emotion and love and I think Kale Williams perfectly delivers these characters in the audiobook! This book brings the story of Tash and Brandon and finally brings all of the brothers back together. If you haven’t read this series, I highly recommend it!

Tash has given up on love, he doesn’t think it’s going to be a part of his future. He has his work, his friends and his cats, and that’s going to be good enough. Brandon certainly hasn’t had it easy, especially after his brothers Luke and Ash left. He escaped that horrible situation, but now he has secrets and is checking over his shoulder. But now he’s a teacher and that is what he’s always wanted to do. When another teacher introduces Brandon to a group where he could do even more good the last thing he expects is fall in love and find his brothers.

This book is quite possibly my favorite of the series, Felice Stevens brings this family back together and man it’s an emotional journey. It’s not easy for this group and then there’s Brandon and Tash. Tash has his own demons plus he thinks he’s too old for Brandon and doesn’t want to tie him down. Brandon has secrets he has to reveal that could jeopardize his entire future. This book went straight to my heart and stayed there. Tash and Brandon are two men that so deserve love and happiness and as much as they try to fight it they see that in each other too.

I think Kale Williams really delivers in his narration of this book. I love the emotion he brings to the story and for me, just truly captures these characters and their stories. I enjoy his storytelling and find myself feeling completely immersed in the story. He’s definitely a favorite for me!

This is a fantastic book and series and it’s among my favorite reads! Felice Stevens is one of those authors that always delivers for me, her books are emotional and powerful and so full of love and this book is a perfect example of why! I absolutely adored Tash and Brandon and their story made my heart happy! And the epilogue that so beautifully brings back the whole family and their relationships, oh my feels! A definite must read and must listen!

EXCERPT

“Care to tell me what’s wrong?” Brandon zipped up his jacket.

“You don’t know? All weekend I’ve been deluding myself. We were caught up in this bubble we created, but now? Now that I have to come face-to-face with your brothers and Gage.” Tash shook his head. “I don’t know if I can do this.”

Heart beating madly, Brandon swallowed. “Can’t do what?” Don’t do this, please; don’t hide yourself away.

“Us. You, me. We’re at different places in our lives. You’re starting out, and with Ash and Luke, you have a whole new world open to you—places to explore and new people to meet.”

Tash unbuckled his seat belt and opened the car door but didn’t get out. “I’m the opposite. I’m ready to settle down. I’m not interested in nightlife and the latest scene. I can’t and won’t ask you to give it all up.” Tash climbed out of the car and slammed the door.

The hell he says. If Tash thought he’d simply state his opinions like God and proclaim what Brandon should do with the rest of his life, he was in for a fight. He wrenched open the door. “I’m not giving anything up. I was never into that.” Brandon slammed the car door behind him with a vicious thump. “Who do you think you are? You say you don’t want to be with me, yet you then get the right to lay out my life in neat little puzzle pieces so it all comes perfectly together as you see fit.”

Tash had stopped in his tracks but didn’t turn around. Hopeful that was a sign he was at least listening, Brandon continued.

“Sure we were in a bubble; it was wonderful this weekend, beautiful and amazing.” He advanced on Tash and stood before him. “Don’t think I don’t know, maybe better than anyone, how something so perfect and magical can be ripped away with no warning.” He put a hand on Tash’s shoulder, hoping Tash wouldn’t move away from him. “And now the hard stuff begins—reality and all the trouble that comes with it. But aren’t you willing to try? See where this journey takes us?”

“Brandon, you’re—”

“Don’t say it. I’ll tell you what I am. I’ve been homeless and hungry. I’ve lived on the streets with rats, not knowing where I would sleep at night. Do you think I’m looking for a man whose only interest is a twenty-dollar glass of wine and where the next party is?”

Tash said nothing, and Brandon had no more strength to argue. Besides, they were at the clinic to do a job. Last time he’d screwed up by running out, and he’d be damned if he’d do it again.

Felice Logo

Felice Stevens has always been a romantic at heart. While life is tough, she believes there is a happy ending for everyone. She started reading traditional historical romances as a teenager, then life and law school got in the way. It wasn’t until she picked up a copy of Bertrice Small and became swept away to Queen Elizabeth’s court that her interest in romance novels was renewed.

But somewhere along the way, her reading shifted to stories of men falling in love. Once she picked up her first gay romance, she became so enamored of the character-driven stories and the overwhelming emotion there was no turning back.

Felice lives in New York City with her husband and two children. Her day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. Although she practices law, she daydreams of a time when she can sit by a beach and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there is bound to be some angst along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.

A photographer with post-traumatic stress disorder falls for a comics artist on a wild New Zealand beach, but can he find true love when he feels so wounded by life?



Everything changed when the bomb exploded. Forty-five-year old, Alex Cox worked as an international photographer until a deadly explosion left him with post-traumatic stress disorder. Emotionally wounded, and desperate for a sense of safety, he’s run all the way to wild and remote Kahawai Bay, New Zealand.



Under the worst possible circumstances, Alex meets Joe, a shy young comics artist. Joe lets Alex into his playful, gentle world of comics, and soon Alex is falling for him, hard. Alex longs for more. Joe is reticent. But is it shyness? Or does Joe not want a much older lover with ‘issues’? Or is something else keeping them apart?



This is a tender and uplifting story about creativity, adversity, true love, and comics.

Jenn Review
4 Stars
This was a quick read, but definitely an enjoyable one! I thought it was packed with emotion and I absolutely fell in love with Alex and Joe! Alex and Joe are two men who are both a bit broken and really don’t even seem to know just how much they need each other. They don’t get off to the best start, but quickly a friendship forms between the two men. They seem unlikely at first, but they are perfectly imperfect for each other.
Alex suffers from PTSD and has moved to New Zealand for a fresh start away from the city and busy life. He’s trying to focus on his photography again. Joe leads a simple life filled with his art and comics, just wanting to get by. He’s shy and a bit afraid, scarred from an accident. Their journey isn’t overly complex or angst filled, but especially in the beginning it’s difficult for these two to open up. Their friendship is sweet and healing but it’s clear Alex cares deeply for Joe, falling for him but not sure how Joe feels. They do finally open up with each other and share their painful stories and that’s when their relationship really strengthens.
I really enjoyed the story and even though it’s short I still feel like I got to know these characters. Alex and Joe are wonderful guys who’ve had some rough experiences and I loved seeing these two find each other. I enjoyed the hurt/comfort style story without too much drama, these two learning to trust and love. This is the kind of story that you can read it one sitting and it will leave you with a happy heart.

“I would never forgive myself if something happened to another man I cared about because I’d been careless and given in to temptation.” ~ Zander



The last thing I was looking for was a relationship, then I laid eyes on a dancer at a nightclub and my entire world was flipped upside down. Kai is everything I’ve ever wanted, but shouldn’t have. I’m haunted by a past I can’t seem to break free from, and I’m not sure I can be the man Kai deserves. He makes me want to try, but I worry that I’m broken beyond repair.



“There was already a big enough stigma attached to being a go-go dancer, but add being a webcam model to the mix and people tended to assume things about me.” ~ Kai



School, dance, cam, repeat. My life was on a constant loop as I struggled to keep my head above water. After seeing Zander in the crowd while I was dancing, I knew I had to meet the handsome stranger who took my breath away. I don’t know if I’m the right man to help set him free from his pain, but I’m going to do everything I can to try and help him see that the past doesn’t have to define his future.

Cover Reveal: SEX, NOT LOVE by Vi Keeland

We are thrilled to bring you the next standalone novel from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Vi Keeland. SEX, NOT LOVE will release on January 15th, 2018

 

 

 

Model: Fabian Castro
Photographer: Rafael Catala
Cover designer: Sommer Stein, Perfect Pear Creative

 

 

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn’t dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

Nothing, I thought.

It’s just sex, not love.

But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

When Greg Mitchelson’s home is torched and his employer killed, Greg fears it’s retribution for his past testimony against a notorious drug gang. Alone, with no money and only the clothes on his back, Greg turns to Colm Riordan, the Deputy US Marshall who’s protected Greg for the last 3 years. But Riordan doesn’t return Greg’s phone calls, and the local Marshal’s office refuses to help him.



In desperation, Greg goes on the run to Wyoming to find his brother, Mitch, whom he hasn’t seen in over a decade. As he reconnects with his brother, Riordan appears, searching for his missing witness. But Greg needs the answers to a lot of questions before he’ll trust Riordan again. Why didn’t he return Greg’s call? Is Riordan there to help Greg – or kill him?
Jenn Review
3.5 Stars
This is an entertaining and action packed story, a similar style to the first book in this series and I did enjoy the ride. This book focuses on Greg, who after getting kicked out by his father for being gay, ends up in witness protection. He’s spent most of his adult life hiding and avoiding but eventually it all catches up to him again, and this time the Marshall’s service isn’t there to help so he turns to his older brother Mitch. The reunion isn’t easy, neither man really knowing what happened to the other over the years, but the two are happy to be together again. When Greg’s Marshall Riordan shows up, questions have to be answered before Greg can trust him again, and even after that, there is the question of the feelings and attraction lingering between the two men. All that plus a dangerous drug cartel that is after Greg leads to an action packed story.
I enjoyed this story and getting to see Mitch and Jake again, along with their team. I think that really played well with this story. Greg has had a pretty rough time and now that he’s found Mitch he doesn’t want to leave him again. The two come to an understanding about their past and want a future. But Greg is in danger and it’s Riordan’s responsibility to protect him. Riordan is also battling his attraction to Greg, something that’s been there from the beginning. These two find themselves alone and hiding in a cabin and that’s where they have to deal with their feelings. I liked these two together, it felt like a good match and something that had already been developed. Riordan is so very protective of Greg, even in the calm moments and I enjoyed that side of him. I really liked seeing Greg grow in confidence as well, in his job and relationships. He was so very likeable, I just wanted him to be happy! There is good character development and a lot of action and overall, an enjoyable read. I’ve definitely enjoyed this series and these characters and the intense situations this group seems to find!

A gift for every single reader needed to know what happened next for to Jack and Riley…



When Hayley arrived on the steps of the D, Riley and Jack knew life would never be the same.



Told through Riley and Jack’s eyes, this is ten years in the life of their family and watching Hayley grow up, fall in love, and start her own life. Hurricanes, illness, babies, happiness, sadness, work, play, the barn, the office, horses, friends, enemies, and above all love.



Excerpt



Chapter One



Riley needed to apologize. Right now.



He’d fucked up big time, and he should have seen it coming, because everything he did went in cycles. He and Jack hadn’t argued in so long and maybe the tension that had been building inside Riley had needed an outlet; he’d provoked the argument. He’d pushed and prodded and sulked and shoved at Jack until Jack had snapped.



Not in loud, shouting temper, or anything like what Riley deserved. No, Jack had gone deathly quiet.



Absolutely. Utterly. Quiet.



Riley shouted at him, got everything out of his system, felt the weight of it all lessen by throwing it at Jack and what had happened? He’d stood there at first, confused, and then steadily calmer. Weirdly calmer.



They argued; no normal marriage went without arguments over things as important as the kids and as trivial as picking up wet towels. But they resolved things, Jack/Riley was a unit that worked. They sometimes bickered and teased, they shouted rarely, and on the odd occasion there would be sulking. Mostly from Riley. He considered it as thinking time but Jack just called him on his sulking like a child.



Their arguments always ended in love; talking, kissing, complete forgiveness that could only come when two people understood and loved each other.



This morning though, he’d made Connor cry, Lexie scowl, and Max hide under the table with Toby. Jack hadn’t even stayed for that. The crying, scowling and hiding had happened after he’d left.



“Why are you shouting at Pappa!” Connor shouted back at Riley. “Stop shouting.” Then he’d started to cry, and Riley’s heart had broken into a million pieces. He’d sat between a crying Connor, and a sullen, angry Lexie and tried to explain that he had a bad headache and he didn’t mean to shout. For headache, read migraine, tight painful migraine that blurred his vision and made him feel sick. He’d taken meds and the sharp edges of the glass in his head were easing, but he couldn’t think straight. Connor stopped crying.



“You were so mean,” Lexie summarized, but she did give Riley a hug and kiss him on the forehead to make it all better.



Max on the other hand, while not angry with Riley and the shouting, was still under the kitchen table with Toby. The black lab, Riley’s black lab, was between Max and Riley in a protective furry wall.



“It’s okay Tobes, I got this,” Riley tried to fold all six-four of himself under the wood. He got caught on a bench, his neck burned, his stomach was in knots, but nothing was going to stop him from getting to Max. Toby did eventually move to one side but not too far. Toby may well have been Riley’s dog at the start, but he and Max were inseparable now.



“Max, buddy?” he began, and Max at least looked up at him for a split second. “You okay?”



“M’okay,” Max said. “You’re noisy.”



At least he wasn’t rocking, or stimming. He was just sitting with his dog in his favorite place under the kitchen table.



“Is everything okay?” Carol said from behind him. He scrambled back and brushed himself off. “Riley?”



“I shouted,” Riley explained simply.



“At the kids?” Carol asked, aghast, as if that was the ultimate sin in her eyes. Which, to be fair, it was in Riley’s as well. He and Jack didn’t shout, they cajoled, and bargained, and ran a happy house. Most of the time, anyway. Just not this morning.



“No, at Jack.”



“Is Max okay?” she peered under the table and smiled at Max. He adored her, the kids all loved their nanny, probably quite a bit more than they loved their dad today.



“He seems fine.” Riley peered out of the window at where Jack had gone. The damage had been done, but Connie and Lexie were chatting to each other, Max was with Carol and he needed to go and make things right with Jack.



“I think we’re okay in here,” Carol said, “Go find Jack.”



Riley shot her a grateful glance, and as he left the kitchen he heard Lexie telling Carol that her Pappa had a headache and that she’d kissed it better. When he closed the door it was just him and the ranch and finding Jack. It didn’t take him long; he was outside their barn, looking up at the siding, with his feet apart and his arms crossed over his chest.



Riley inhaled the fresh morning air and pulled back his shoulders. He could do this; he could ignore the pain in his head now it had lessened a little, he could push back the nausea, and he could go and apologize to Jack for being a fucking idiot.



“I’m sorry,” he murmured, coming to a stop next to Jack, only a few inches separating their arms. Jack didn’t move.



“It’s okay.” Although it didn’t sound okay at all. Okay was one of those words that meant nothing in the context of an argument, it was a word that plastered over cracks in a relationship. Okay was quiet and tight-lipped silences and Riley recalled okay from when he was a kid.



He hated okay.



“It’s not okay, I have a headache and I didn’t mean any of what I said.”



“You didn’t mean to say that life would be easier if you didn’t have to listen to me?” Jack’s voice was low and serious, and Riley winced.



“You were saying too much, and I couldn’t think.”



Their discussion had started in the bedroom.



“I asked if you’d made an appointment to see someone about the headaches.”



“I know—”



“And why you were limping again—”



“Jack—”



“And why you weren’t sleeping, and why you spent so much time at the office, and why the fuck have we not used the barn in over a month?”



The barn wasn’t just the barn, it was a euphemism for sex. They hadn’t been together in a month, over a month now. How did Riley explain that he’d been at the office, sometimes with the blinds shut, closing out the light, sleeping? How did he explain he didn’t want to see a doctor because the headaches scared him? And how the hell did he tell Jack he was limping because every single one of his muscles hurt, because he was tired, because it was all too much?



“Jack, I’m sorry.”



“You’re not, Riley, because you won’t listen to me.” Jack pointed at the barn. “I’m thinking we turn this into a games room for the kids.”



Riley gripped Jack’s arm. “No, what the hell?” His tension fled and in its place was panic. This was their space. Sometimes they came out here to talk, to hide away from the world, but it was also the one place they had the hottest sex he’d ever experienced. He wanted that again, but he was so tired, every time he turned over in bed his neck hurt, and his head pounded, and his leg ached, and he was fucking tired of it all. “Jack, I’m sorry, don’t…”



Jack turned to face him, and his expression wasn’t angry. “Either you go to the doctor, right here, right now, or I start clearing the place for a pool table.” He looked deadly serious, and Riley couldn’t tell if this was an empty threat. Then Jack softened, cradled his face and pressed a kiss to his forehead. “Riley, please.”



Just those two words pierced the fear in Riley, he couldn’t stop the pain, or the threat of being sick, or not sleeping, but whatever was wrong, Jack would be there for him.



“I’m scared,” Riley murmured.



Jack gathered him close. “You think I’m not?”



“Please don’t,” Riley said against Jack’s neck. His words sounded slurred and fear made him sway. What the hell? “Please don’t let me chase you away.”



“I won’t.”



And that was the last thing he heard as his world went to black.

BLURB

Zeb—
Family and tradition.
That’s my life.
But now, it’s all going to shit. My baby brother brings home big-city trouble. My sister brings home a big-city firebrand IN big trouble, who turns my world upside down and inside out.
She makes me wish for things I can’t have, but I’ll be damned if I give anybody the power to hurt me like that again.
Besides, I have to focus. Keep the family and tradition alive.
Trouble is, I can’t get away from her scent. The sound of her voice. What the thought of her does to me.

Gabriella—
When a nightmare comes to my life, my best friend rescues me and takes me home to her old-fashioned family.
It’s like stepping into a different world, but her older brother almost makes it better. Then he turns into an arrogant ass of a caveman.
If I didn’t desperately need the help, I would leave.
No, I would not miss the infuriating things Zeb says and does.
Not one bit.
Even if he is hot, in a primitive sort of way.
He confuses me, going from concerned and sweet, to hot, to cold as ice.
I can’t get involved anyway—not with the wounds of the last time literally still healing—and he’s busy trying to hold onto a dying way of life.

WISH YOU WERE MINE by Tara Sivec

(November 14, 2017; Forever Yours eBook; $3.99)

Sivec_WishYouWereMine_ebook.jpg

Five years.  I would have stayed away longer if I hadn’t received the letter.  Not a day has gone by that I haven’t thought about her, haven’t missed her smile, haven’t wished that things were different.

The last time I saw my two best friends, I vowed to not stand in the way of their happiness, even if that meant I couldn’t be a part of their lives.  Cameron James and her emerald-green eyes were too much of a temptation and I couldn’t stay and watch them together.  Cameron deserved better than me.  She deserved him.

But now that I am back, things are different.  I’m not going to stand by and watch the woman I’ve always loved slip away again.  I’m done living my life with regrets and I’m ready to tell her the truth.  And I’ll do whatever it takes to show her that I always wished she was mine.

Jenn Review

4 Stars

Tara Sivec really delivers an emotional, touching friends to lovers story with Wish You Were Mine! Oh the feels from this book! Everett, Cameron and Aiden were best friends as kids, you know the kind where you make life-long pacts to always be there for each other, the kind where you have secret special traditions, just the very best kind. But as always, life mixes things up a bit and this book is the journey to see if those childhood wishes can come true.

The book starts with a major punch to the feels, man it got me right away, but it really does set the tone for Everett and his journey back to Cameron. Upon finishing school, Everett decides to follow one of his dreams and become a doctor with Doctors Without Borders. It means giving up on his other dream of Cameron loving him as much as he loves her, but he doesn’t think he’s good enough for her and believes it’s for the best. But five years later, he’s back but now Aiden is gone and Everett is falling apart and afraid to see Cameron in that condition.

Cameron works hard to keep her family’s camp running, it is something so special to her and she refuses to give up. She’s still dealing with the pain of losing Aiden and Everett’s disappearance from her life, but she’s trying. That is until one day Everett shows up at the camp and every emotion is there and just raw. It also happens to be the same time as a surprise visit from someone who may be able to save her business and events throw Everett and Cameron back together right then and there.

These two have been in love with each other their whole lives, but neither has been brave enough to admit it to the other person. There’s been hurt and misunderstandings but when these two finally figure it out – well it was just beautiful. Even though they are kind of forced into friendship again, it really gives them a chance to be together and finally open up. I really liked both Cam and Everett and was definitely rooting for them the whole time. The love these two have for each other, and have had since they were kids, can really be felt. This is a wonderful love story with it’s share of drama but also humor and life-long love! Another touching read from Tara Sivec that will definitely stay in my heart!

Wells Lemiere knew the moment he saw Matty Haverbrooke, he had to have him. Matty was quiet, he was talented, he was beautiful, and Wells couldn’t stay away.

As the youngest and most talented son of the NHL Commissioner, Matty had found the burden of family expectations almost too heavy to carry on even his broad shoulders. He had no intention of getting involved in a relationship with Wells. But the heart he’d given up for dead had other ideas.

Their affair was intense and overwhelming, but when Matty couldn’t bring himself to come out and admit he wanted a public future with the man he loved, Wells had no choice but to honor his vow to live openly…and leave Matty behind.

But then he learns Wells is marrying another, and Matty knows he can’t let that happen. Can he throw down his gloves and embrace his future with both hands? Or will he pull the door to his closet shut once more?
