Federal Agent Lucas Beaumont has an agenda — get himself assigned to the case of the apparent serial murders at Lancaster Falls, find out who the murderer is, and then lay the ghosts that haunt his grandfather to rest. In the midst of a horrific murder investigation, the only peace he gets is from simple moments in a warm kitchen, talking to hotel owner, Josh. Attraction to the easygoing man is something he didn’t expect; in doing so, he opens himself to hurt, but at the same time, he begins to fall in love.

Josh is struggling to keep the Falls Hotel, even with every cent he has invested in its upkeep. The one thing keeping him above water is the not entirely legal work he does on the side—a steady income that not even his son knows about. When the FBI takes over his hotel for the duration of the Hell’s Gate serial killer case, Josh is faced with the real possibility that Lucas will not only discover his secret but also steal his heart.

When tragedy hits Josh and his son, and when it seems all hope is lost, can Lucas rescue them both?

 

Jenn Review

4.5 Stars

I have really enjoyed this series, following the characters and the very intriguing mystery that is Lancaster Falls and oh boy does RJ Scott really bring it all together in spectacular fashion. This is definitely not a stand-alone though, these books really do have to be read in order to understand everything that is happening.

In this book, we get to know more about Josh, the owner of the local hotel and his son Harry. He’s trying to build a life for them, even if it it means he does some secret contract work as a hacker. Something no one knows about. We also meet Federal Agent Lucas, in Lancaster Falls investigating the murders.  A big part of this story though is the mystery and the murders, uncovering the secrets in town. While Lucas is there to help and find the killer, he also has additional motivation, trying to find a missing woman important to his grandfather. I have to say that I really liked these two, their connection and how their relationship builds. They have such a great chemistry and I loved their stolen moments together that become so much for them both. Of course, these two face some challenges but it’s in those moments that they really learn what they mean to each other.

I don’t want to go into much detail about how this all comes together, I don’t want to spoil anything but wow, it was action packed and intense. There is a lot to this story, but we finally get our answers and learn what really happened to Casey and where those bones came from. I enjoyed this book and this series overall. It really has it all, there’s murder, mystery, crazy secrets and also love, passion and wonderful couples building lives together. I can definitely say that I was happy with the way it ended, the story line itself and the loving couples.

BLURB:

… he walked a tightrope five stories up just to hold my hand. 

Gaze: I moved into the building next to Pixie when I was eleven. She blew bubbles through my window. I shot my Nerf gun through hers. We both had secrets, but one of us was fated to get hurt. I wanted it to be me. 

Pixie: When I was afraid of the dark, he would shine a light in my window. We shared our popsicles and I taught him how to get a good swing on the playground. I never imagined I’d have to decide who got to live and who didn’t. I chose him –and he could never know.

She walked a tightrope five stories up just to save my life…

DIS Excerpt

Short excerpt:

The ache in my chest hurt again. I didn’t know how to be me without her. 

Medium excerpt: 

And then he came in for the kiss. It was him and I was so used to him, but in a totally different way. A new way. Changing everything and realizing that nothing really had to change. He was already mine. His kiss was just ours. Incredibly different from the accidental kiss when we were kids. 

His lips tasted good. Slow and gentle, but my heart was racing so fast. He stopped and checked my eyes. I nodded slightly. I was good. This was good. He was making my mouth mine, letting me be the one that decided to be kissed. And then I wasn’t thinking anymore. 

I was just a girl kissing a boy and free falling into the beauty of permission.

Long Excerpt: 

I wanted to go find Pixie 

There was no hiding at my height now. In my next class, Ashlin sidled close. “Hey, you wanted to see Pixie? You’re going to see a lot of her soon.” 

If she was superman she couldn’t have timed it better because the fire alarm went off. I followed the flow out the door, the teachers closing doors and flicking out lights. I didn’t like how Megan and Ashlin snickered with each other. 

They gathered near a group of girls that all had their phones out. Their attention was pinned on a door like they were cats ready for a mouse to pop out. 

It was cold outside. I stood near my last class, but it was more a loose cluster. When the door finally popped open, the fire alarm was starting to give me a headache. 

The spoils of mean laughter made me grit my teeth. I’d been bullied enough to know that that particular noise was always accompanied by someone else’s pain. 

Her hair was shorter than when we were kids, but her face was an instant balm to my raw heart. Pixie. 

But I went from calm to confusion. My normally gutsy Pixie looked like she was trapped in her worst nightmare. She hung her head for a few beats of the alarm. Flashes went off. The crew of girls snapping pictures. 

Pixie was hugging her body and I realized why with a gasp. She was only in a pair of underwear. She was topless and hugging her breasts as a way to cover herself. 

I jumped through the kids in front of me, using their shoulders to hold myself up and swing my long legs through. I flat out sprinted to get to Pixie, peeling off my basketball jacket from my old school as I moved. I covered her from the front, pulling the arms behind her back. 

She looked up in my eyes. Her confusion and relief collided. 

I slipped my sweat pants off and held them out to her feet. She stuck them in one and at a time and then jumped so I could yank them up the rest of the way. 

The world swirled around us, blurry and useless. I used the time to cuddle her to me, holding the jacket closed while she wiggled her arms inside. I leaned over her and snapped up the back. She was covered. 

“Gaze?” She held up her hand, well it was her hand but it was dwarfed by the extra fabric of my long jacket on her. She almost touched my face before squinting. “You can’t be?”

I watched as her soul knew what her brain refused to come to terms with. 

“I am. It’s me and I’m back.” 

Teachers came into our orbit, asking questions. The snide assholes were there too, but the pictures and video continued, I saw it in my peripheral. I’m sure my boxer briefs were super exciting. 

Pixie pushed on my chest. “Are you cold?”

“No.” It was her. I could still smell her strawberry shampoo and see the small dusting of freckles on the bridge of her nose. They were my own personal constellation that I’ve always wished on a million times.

Hardwood

Four Bears Construction Series, Book Three

KM Neuhold

Release Date: 07.01.20

M/M Contemporary Romance

Hardwood-KMN-f900

Blurb

I’ve spent forty-four years of my life telling the world I’m a carpet man. Is it too late to admit to myself and everyone else that deep down I’m really all about the Hardwood?

It took me over thirty-five years to admit to myself that I’m gay, another seven to find the courage to say it out loud to anyone else, and exactly thirty seconds to develop a massive crush on my daughter’s music teacher. It’s really not my fault, have you even seen those cute bowties he wears?

After everything it’s taken to get here, am I going to work up the nerve to come out to my ex-wife and my best friends? Am I ready to shake up my comfortable, simple life and take a chance on Watson? Or am I going to throw a wrench in my own chance for happily ever after?

Hardwood is a steamy, seriously so much delicious tension, single-dad, gay awakening, low angst story, which happens to be the third in the Four Bears Construction Series. It CAN be read as a stand-alone. There are NO shifters in this series, only the OTHER kind of bears.

Excerpt

“Welcome then. I’ve been coming here for years, and it’s a great bar. Lots of nice people, and the drinks aren’t overpriced, not much more you could ask for out of a bar,” I ramble, taking another sip from my drink to shut my stupid mouth up.

The corner of his lip quirks up in an uncertain sort of half smile. “Thanks. I’m not sure I’ll become a regular, I’m kind of…trying it out,” he confesses.

“I get it.”

I glance over my shoulder to make sure my friends aren’t terribly bereft without me, and I’m unsurprised to find them both making vulgar gestures in my direction. Sometimes it’s hard to remember why I love them. I give them the finger and turn my attention back to Everett.

“So, what do you do for a living?”

“You don’t have to do that,” he says.

“Do what?” I cock my head curiously, pulling my eyebrows together.

“You saw me acting nervous in the parking lot and now you think I need a friend, right?” he guesses. “I appreciate it, but you don’t need to worry about me. I really am just here for a drink.”

“Wow, I clearly need to work on my flirting if it’s coming off as pity,” I joke. Yes, I figured he could use a friendly welcome after seeing how nervous he was outside. Would I also like to take him home and lick his abs, among other things? Also, yes.

“Sorry,” he says, giving me another one of those cute half-smiles. “I am so far outside of my comfort zone right now it’s not even funny.”

“Fuck comfort zones. When was the last time something memorable happened inside of a comfort zone?” I challenge.

A surprised laugh escapes his lips, and his half smile is cranked up to a full smile, and damn is he even more gorgeous when he smiles for real.

“You have a point there,” he agrees.

“I’m a genius,” I agree. “Listen, I won’t bug you if you’d rather be alone.”

He looks down at his glass, swirling it absently. “Construction,” he says.

“What?”

“You asked what I do for a living,” he explains. “I own a construction company.”

“Yeah, I can see that.” I nod and drain the rest of my drink, gesturing to Van for one more. “Now, when you’re all hot and sweaty, using your big, hard hammer to pound something, are you usually shirtless, or is that only how it works in porn?”

He snorts into his drink, sputtering a cough as he sets his glass down and reaches for a napkin. “I don’t think OSHA would approve of being shirtless on a work site,” he answers once he stops coughing.

I sigh dramatically. “I feel so lied to. If you can’t trust porn, who can you trust?”

“The eternal question,” he agrees solemnly.

Author K.M. Neuhold is a complete romance junkie, a total sap in every way. She started her journey as an author in new adult, MF romance, but after a chance reading of an MM book she was completely hooked on everything about lovely- and sometimes damaged- men finding their Happily Ever After together. She has a strong passion for writing characters with a lot of heart and soul, and a bit of humor as well. And she fully admits that her OCD tendencies of making sure every side character has a full backstory will likely always lead to every book having a spin-off or series. When she’s not writing she’s a lion tamer, an astronaut, and a superhero…just kidding, she’s likely watching Netflix and snuggling with her husky while her amazing husband brings her coffee.

Blurb:
A sexy, passionate, utterly addictive standalone MM romance from #1 NYT Bestseller Lauren Blakely!

Every bartender should follow one simple rule—don’t go home with the customers.

That’s been easy for me to stick to, until the night a cocky, confident, and sinfully charming hockey star walks into my bar. This sexy athlete is too hard to resist, especially when he makes it clear how much he wants the “sarcastic, witty, hot AF” guy behind the bar—also known as me.

Still, I’m not keen on breaking my own rules since I know where that can lead—no place good.

But when that man makes his case with one bone-searing kiss on the streets of London, I throw resistance out the window.

What could go wrong with a hot, dirty, no-strings-attached fling before he leaves town in five days?

Trouble is, soon our nights together lead to days, to long conversations, to getting to know each other, and to something I never expected—falling ridiculously hard for a man who’s getting on a plane to America when I live a world away.

My life is here. His is there. And no amount of falling or feeling will change that one big problem.

Warning: contains hot hotel sex, loads of dirty talk, PDA all over London, and two sexy, witty, charming alpha heroes…

Campfire Chaos

Hood River Hoodlums, Book 3
by K Webster
Publication Date: June 25, 2020
Genres: Forbidden Enemies to Lovers Romance

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books | Eden Books

From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a forbidden, enemies to lovers romance called Campfire Chaos!

I had it all.
Popularity. Good grades. Cheerleading. Doting family and great friends.

Until the wrong boy swept into my perfect world and destroyed every part of it.
Abuse. Drugs. Humiliation.
He trampled all over my reputation and I was powerless to do anything about it.
I couldn’t break free from his controlling hold.
But the night of the accident changed everything.

Now I’m freed at last.
It comes at a cost, though. I hurt a Hoodlum.
I can’t fix him, but I can fix me.
Without the monster in my life, I grow stronger, fiercer, braver.

I’m on the right track to cleaning up the mess that is my life.
Repairing friendships.
Restoring trust with my family.
Healing from my recent, terrible past.

Everything was going to be okay.
Or so I thought.

Because I have a new problem.
Cal Hutton.
Town’s lawless, gorgeous bad boy. A Hood River Hoodlum. My new nemesis.
He wants me to pay for what I did to his best friend.

Cal thinks I’m weak and an unworthy adversary, someone he can toy with.
But I’ll never allow another man to have that power over me.

I have claws now.
I fight back.

This is a full-length high school enemies-to-lovers, forbidden, and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book three in the Hood River Hoodlum series that will have interlinking storylines. Campfire Chaos shouldn’t be read as a standalone and is the continuation of a four-book planned series that gives each Hoodlum a book. The first book in the series is the only MM story. The others, including this one, are MF.

Jenn Review

5 Stars

Oh the DRAMA! I freaking love this series and the whole Hoodlum cast, I get absolutely sucked into their chaotic world and it’s become a new favorite of mine! This book features Cal and Charlotte and it is intense! Charlotte has made some massive mistakes and after hurting Cal’s best friend Terrance, Cal is on the hunt for Charlotte English.

There really is so much to this story, there’s pain and recovery, hate and anger, rage and lust and the list goes on. Cal wants to make Charlotte pay for what she has done, but the anger he carries turns into something else, lust and passion. And when Charlotte is a willing recipient something more grows between these two. Add in the whole forbidden angle and damn it’s smoking hot! I loved these two!

Again, one of my favorite things about this series is the drama. I don’t usually go for the major drama, angst reads, but this one consumes me. I love these characters and their give-no-effs attitudes, they just go after it. I really loved the continuing stories for the rest of the Hoodlums and holy moly am I already pining for the next book. I want MORE! This is a fantastic, fun and intense series that I highly recommend!

Sexy. Demanding. Cocky. 
All words I would use to describe Kingston Avery. 
The owner of Avery Capital Holdings— and my new boss. 
It was tempting enough working together everyday, but ignoring his wicked

But the company had a zero fraternization policy, and things were already
complicated enough. 
I needed to focus on doing my job. 
And avoid doing my boss. 
Kingston wasn’t just another suit… 
He was a cocky suit. 
And when the suit came off, 
He was a man who could steal my heart. 
Gorgeous. Attentive. Compassionate.
I just hope it didn’t cost me my career.

DIRTY DEALER
BY KACEY SHEA
On paper I
have it all. Wealth, security, and a collection of vehicles that spark envy,
even amongst LA’s rich and famous. Money is all I ever wanted, but now that I
have it in spades, I’m restless.
For the
first time in my life, I want things cash can’t procure. I want a real
relationship. Beauty and brains. A salacious little minx who isn’t afraid to
call me out. My equal, in and out of the bedroom.
The problem
is I have no clue where to find a woman like that.
Imagine my
luck when I come upon a curvy, gorgeous maiden in distress, stranded on the
side of I-10 like a mirage fashioned from my deepest desires. It’s fate.
Kismet.
Only she
isn’t impressed. Not by my money, my power, or my ability to make all her
dreams come true. Hell, she won’t even accept my ride without an
argument. But I’m not giving up. She doesn’t know who she’s dealing with, and
I’m not afraid to play dirty.

HIRED HOTTIE
BY KELSIE RAE
Levi McCoy
took me under his wing when we were kids. He was my protector. My best friend.
My everything.
And I was
his sidekick.
When he
landed an internship at Montague Enterprises, I was thrilled. Hundreds of
people had applied, and Levi and his roommate had made the cut. There was just
one problem. Only one of them would be offered the permanent position.
That’s when
things got messy. 
The two
bargained for the final job offer, using me as their pawn.
And I fell
for it. The scheming. The stolen kisses. The late night texts. My heart was
being torn in two, and neither one of them cared. I was nothing but a pretty
face to one of them, and an easy target for the other.
All good
things must come to an end, right? Except our ending was one I didn’t see
coming. Hell, it should’ve never started in the first place.

COCKY NOTES
BY LEESA BOW
Who thought
writing ‘LOSERS’ on a menu could lead to an affair of love notes?
It didn’t
start out as love. How could it when I vowed never to fall in love…
Reef
Burton, the sexy blue-eyed football player, and his mates are definitely not
‘Losers’ yet writing it on a menu gave me reason to smile. Only it didn’t make
it to the trash.
He returns
to the restaurant where I work wearing his killer smile. I wasn’t to know those
squiggly lines and arrows meant something. An offensive play his football team
learned at an earlier training session. Coming here discussing the team plays
over coffee helps… so he says.
He’ll see
what I wrote. Apart from it being awkward the next time I serve him he could
also report me to my boss.
I can’t
lose my job when in hindsight I need two to pay all the bills rolling in, and
to care for my invalid father.
I’m
thankful he kept it as our secret.
Until he
left me a note.
Responding
will only lead to more trouble.
So when Mr
Blue Eyes-Blond Surfy-Hair gives me one of his spine tingling looks, how can I
resist?

SCANDALOUS SCOTSMAN

BY MJ FIELDS

One trip
down the stairs, caused by a lone Lego, while wrapped in a towel, spewing a
plethora of profanities, and my cell phone went flying.
I landed on
my ass, and then the ER.
Between
those two occurrences was a FaceTime call, placed by a bouncing phone, to the
number of a man I didn’t even truly look at, who had now seen more of my body
than anyone had since my Tinder days, over a year ago.
Three
declined calls later, I limped out the door to get myself to the ER before
starting my hectic day.
The ER was
packed, but when I saw Nurse Bridget, one of my students’ mothers, I pleaded my
case, and she hurried me into an examination room.
An hour later,
I left on crutches with a bruised ass, a fractured ankle, and an appointment to
see an orthopedic surgeon at four p.m.
Arriving
fifteen minutes late for that appointment, I heard the sexy yet very brash
accent of a man who clearly had an obsession with punctuality and had,
apparently, no bedside manner.
Dr. Ethan
Stewart, tall, copper-haired, sinfully sexy … was a total ass.
After a
tongue-lashing about how irresponsible I was to, first, leave the ER with such
an injury, and second, be late, I put him in his place … or so I thought.
Turned off
by his arrogant attitude, turned on by the roguish glint in his green eyes and
the way he spoke, I left his office a hot … and wet mess.
Upon
exiting, my phone rang again. It was the same number from before, and I couldn’t
help answering to give the caller a piece of my mind.
Once in my
car, I hung up, tossed my phone on the passenger seat, and then looked out the
window to see him with his phone to his ear and a grin spread across his
far too handsome face.
It couldn’t
be …
Could it?

JILTED JOCK

BY REBECCA JENSHAK

He was
someone who belonged on the cover of Sports Illustrated instead of in my small
beach town.
A sexy,
cocky Australian soccer star named Finn was the last person I expected to be
living with for two weeks.
He showed
up at my brother’s house on his wedding night, hot, drunk, and very much not married.
Next thing I knew, we were roommates, spending nights watching TV and getting
to know one another.
Those two
weeks turned into more than either of us bargained for.
He was
fresh off a broken heart and I had a boyfriend.
I wasn’t
supposed to fall for the jilted jock, especially when I knew we’d be going our
separate ways.
All good
things must come to an end, right?
Except he’s
not letting me go without a fight.

SMUG BASTARD

BY STACEY MARIE BROWN

It was my time, a cross country drive heading home for my brother’s
wedding to figure out my life after college. Me, my dog named Goat, and the
open road. That’s all I wanted.
He wasn’t supposed to be part of it. My older brother’s high school
friend and my sister’s ex. The cocky boy my eleven-year-old-self hated.
The infamous Smith Blackburn.
AKA Smug Bastard.
The guy every girl wanted to be with and every guy wanted to be.
The day after graduation, he left town and disappeared, losing contact
with my family. But nine years later, he resurfaces and becomes a thorn in my
side once again.
After his motorcycle breaks down, my older siblings convince me to let
him ride home with me. Kyle wants his old buddy at his wedding, and Kasey,
still carrying a torch for him, wants nothing more than to see him again,
convinced they are meant to be. It’s the last thing in the world I want, but I
learned long ago going up against the powerhouse twins is futile.
After nine years, we’ve both grown up, but our mutual dislike lingers.
Though I can’t deny he is the sexiest man I have ever seen in my life. His
piercing blue eyes, gorgeous rugged face, and muscular, tall figure belong on
magazine covers. But he’s still a smug bastard, and I’m still the annoying
little “Baby K.”
Spending every minute together in a tiny camper van starts to twist the
lines of hate, igniting feelings and passions I’ve never felt before, shoving
me out of my safety bubble. Tension grows, and nights are filled with strain
and forbidden desire.
But I can feel him holding back. Cagey and cryptic, Smith’s dark past
hints at the surface.
When it finds us, nothing could have prepared me for the truth—the
secrets that flip everything upside down.
I wasn’t supposed to fall for him.
He was never meant to be mine.

BLOODTHIRSTY BASTARD

BY T.L. CHRISTIANSON

All I
wanted was to escape the scandal.
The job
offer in California was the perfect opportunity to pack up and head West.
A dark,
sexy, and mysterious new boss wasn’t in the plan.
And his
secrets run deeper than just his business dealings.
When Ethan
reveals who and what he truly is, it throws everything I ever thought I knew
about the world out the window.
Vampire.
The word
alone brings up visions of blood-sucking monsters.
Yet, Ethan
is anything but.
Falling for
him, with his dashing good looks and honed charm, was almost inevitable.
But we’re
from two very different worlds, and the danger in his might just bring an end
neither of us saw coming.
Bloodthirsty
Bastard – a paranormal story from the Cocky Bastard world you know and love

Release Blitz: DEAD PRETTY by Samantha Towle

Happy Friday! We are excited to share the Release Blitz for Dead Pretty by Samantha Towle today! I love a good thriller and this sounds like it’s fantastic, definitely looking forward to checking out this new book!

Happy Reading!

 

DeadPretty_Ebook

From New York Times bestselling author Samantha Towle comes a gripping psychological thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat.

I’d once believed that nothing would equal the pain of losing my parents.

I was wrong.

I had barely even begun to process their deaths when it started.

The love notes, flowers, gifts … all anonymously left on my porch.

Then, I opened my door to a dead bird.

At first, I thought it had died naturally.

I knew that wasn’t the case when I found my neighbor’s cat the next day.

Then, the murders started.

The victims … women who looked eerily similar to me.

I had a stalker. A murderous one.

And I had no clue who he was.

He never showed me his face.

Not even when he carved his final message into me.

I survived that night. But my life was over. It had ended the moment Tobias Ripley’s infatuation with me began.

So, I changed my name and moved away.

Now, I live a life of solitude. I don’t make connections with anyone.

Until Jack Canti walks into my life with his sharp eyes and easy smiles.

Only Jack isn’t the man he says he is.

And when the murders start again, I’m left wondering if it’s a copycat.

Or worse …

What if Tobias wasn’t the real killer after all … and the murderer has been right here with me all along?

Campfire Chaos

Hood River Hoodlums, Book 3
by K Webster
Publication Date: June 25, 2020
Genres: Forbidden Enemies to Lovers Romance

Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | Apple Books | Eden Books

From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a forbidden, enemies to lovers romance called Campfire Chaos!

I had it all.
Popularity. Good grades. Cheerleading. Doting family and great friends.

Until the wrong boy swept into my perfect world and destroyed every part of it.
Abuse. Drugs. Humiliation.
He trampled all over my reputation and I was powerless to do anything about it.
I couldn’t break free from his controlling hold.
But the night of the accident changed everything.

Now I’m freed at last.
It comes at a cost, though. I hurt a Hoodlum.
I can’t fix him, but I can fix me.
Without the monster in my life, I grow stronger, fiercer, braver.

I’m on the right track to cleaning up the mess that is my life.
Repairing friendships.
Restoring trust with my family.
Healing from my recent, terrible past.

Everything was going to be okay.
Or so I thought.

Because I have a new problem.
Cal Hutton.
Town’s lawless, gorgeous bad boy. A Hood River Hoodlum. My new nemesis.
He wants me to pay for what I did to his best friend.

Cal thinks I’m weak and an unworthy adversary, someone he can toy with.
But I’ll never allow another man to have that power over me.

I have claws now.
I fight back.

This is a full-length high school enemies-to-lovers, forbidden, and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book three in the Hood River Hoodlum series that will have interlinking storylines. Campfire Chaos shouldn’t be read as a standalone and is the continuation of a four-book planned series that gives each Hoodlum a book. The first book in the series is the only MM story. The others, including this one, are MF.

Reformed gangster Luis falls hard for his boss. When friendship turns to love, it’s up to Paolo to convince him second chances are worth the pain.

Luis Pope is back on the street after a six year stretch in prison, but life on the outside seems just out of reach, especially when the whole neighbourhood knows his face for all the wrong reasons.

Paolo’s temper makes it hard to keep staff, and he knows Luis’s rep all too well. But his nonno believes in redemption, and Luis isn’t the tough guy Paolo remembers. Prison has left its mark, inside and out, and all the kindness in the world can’t fix the three inch scar on Luis’s skull.

And it can’t keep ghosts locked up. Luis’s the best worker Paolo’s ever had, and Luis’s happier than he’s ever been. But his old life doesn’t want to stay in the past. Trouble comes to call, and when it makes him an offer he can’t refuse, keeping Paolo safe hurts the most.

Redemption is an angsty, standalone MM romance novel, with second chances, found family, friends-to-lovers, and buckets of hurt/comfort themed loveliness.

Federal Agent Lucas Beaumont has an agenda — get himself assigned to the case of the apparent serial murders at Lancaster Falls, find out who the murderer is, and then lay the ghosts that haunt his grandfather to rest. In the midst of a horrific murder investigation, the only peace he gets is from simple moments in a warm kitchen, talking to hotel owner, Josh. Attraction to the easygoing man is something he didn’t expect; in doing so, he opens himself to hurt, but at the same time, he begins to fall in love.

Josh is struggling to keep the Falls Hotel, even with every cent he has invested in its upkeep. The one thing keeping him above water is the not entirely legal work he does on the side—a steady income that not even his son knows about. When the FBI takes over his hotel for the duration of the Hell’s Gate serial killer case, Josh is faced with the real possibility that Lucas will not only discover his secret but also steal his heart.

When tragedy hits Josh and his son, and when it seems all hope is lost, can Lucas rescue them both?
