SBPRBanner-SS-RB.jpg

Smitty’s Sheriff, a sexy, heart-warming MM romance by Cardeno C. is now LIVE!

SmittysSherrif_eBookFinal

Todd is too flakey. Richard is too stubborn. Together, they’re perfect. A May-December couple get a second chance at love.

Retired soldier Richard Davis wants a stable life in a quiet town with a forever man. Becoming the sheriff of Hope, Arizona, accomplishes two of his three goals, but instead of finding a serious partner, he falls for too-young-to-be-committed and too-flakey-to-be-serious Todd Smitty. Richard won’t find the right man if he’s obsessed with the wrong one, so he walks away from Todd.

It’s lust at first sight when Todd meets his sister’s army friend. He sets his sights on the worldly, strong, stable older man, and the more time he spends with Richard, the harder he falls. But after three years together, Richard cuts off all contact with no explanation.

When a mutual obligation requires Todd to move into Richard’s house, he’s thrilled at the opportunity to earn a second chance. Ignoring Todd from across town was hard enough. Can Richard resist temptation under his own roof?

New Release Review & GIVEAWAY: The Escape by Nicky James

Title: The Escape: Soren’s Saga
Author: Nicky James
Genre: M/M Romance Contemporary
Release Date: July 14, 2017
 
Dancing, loud music, drinking and sex… 

 


Who wouldn’t love a job that entailed all these things?

After giving up on school and being cast aside by an unsupportive family, Soren Matheson figured he’d landed every young man’s dream job.

But… there is a catch. 

Not everything is as it seems and at the end of the day… 

Maybe even dream jobs don’t exist.

Remy Moretti lives in a world of precision and order. When a chance run-in with a sassy, sarcastic blond one evening upsets his structured world, Remy needs to find out who he is.

What he discovers makes his hair stand on end. 

The defeat and fear hidden behind the young man’s eyes gives him nightmares.

Someone needs to get to the bottom of this.

Until then, Remy will need to do whatever it takes to keep Soren safe.
review
4 Stars
I have to start by saying this book wasn’t really what I expected, going into it I thought it would be pretty dark and sad and while it had those moments, for me it felt more like a story of healing and hope and I truly enjoyed it! There are definitely tough moments, they will hurt, but the overall feeling was healing and a wonderful journey of love and finding oneself. I think Nicky James does a wonderful job with Soren’s story, and the way it all came together made my heart incredibly happy!
Soren works in a club as a bartender, dancer and quite often is required to provide sexual services to the clubs VIPs. He’s only 22 and has been working in that club for years. He’s had enough though, he’s miserable and wants out, but he doesn’t see a way out. His life is controlled by the club owner Donny (total scum bag). One night he meets Remy, a magazine editor who likes order, organization and cleanliness. These two should not click, but they do and when Remy realizes what is happening to Soren he promises to help him get out and get his life together.
These two start out building a friendship, one that both men really need and as that develops and trust begins to form they are put to the test and that is when real feelings start to form. These two are so wonderful for each other, Soren discovers what is like to have support and trust and someone who genuinely cares about him, and for Remy, Soren is that person to test him, to challenge him and his OCD habits. These two together made me smile and made me feel; the love, the passion and the hope.
I felt like this story wasn’t so much about Soren’s initial job and what he had to go through, but more about his journey out of it and building a life with Remy. Both of these characters are just absolutely beautiful, Soren broken inside but wanting more and Remy understanding love and family but lonely and wanting to care for Soren. Their romance builds and becomes so solid that you just know these two are meant to be. I thought this was a touching, sweet story that totally took me by surprise. There is some darkness, but then it’s all about the light. This definitely will not be my last Nicky James read!

Nicky James lives in the small town of Petrolia, Ontario, Canada. She is mother to a wonderful teenage boy and wife to a truly supportive and understanding husband who, thankfully, doesn’t think her crazy.

Nicky has always had two profound dreams in life; to fall back hundreds of years in time and live in a simpler world and to write novels. Since only one of those dreams was a possibility, she decided to make the other come alive on paper.
Nicky writes MM romance books in a variety of styles including contemporary, medieval, fantasy, and historical.

Laters~ Amber

 

Hollywood hath no fury like a woman scorned. In this fun, flirty second-chance romance from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett, an aspiring starlet reconnects with her first love.

“Sawyer Bennett never fails to deliver heroes I fall hard for and heroines I adore.”—Violet Duke

Eden Goodnight went to Los Angeles to make it big, not to be publicly humiliated by her cheating fiancé at a red-carpet premiere. But when Eden returns to her hometown to put the scandal behind her, she can barely find a sympathetic shoulder to cry on. Turns out the locals are worse than the paparazzi, and they all think she’s turned into a spoiled brat. But in a strange twist of fate, the one person who seems to understand what Eden’s going through is Cooper Mayfield . . . the boy she left behind.

Small-town charm is no match for the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. At least that’s what Coop’s been telling himself all these years. As Eden’s old flame—and the landscaper for her family’s historic home—Coop feels some responsibility for getting her out of her funk. But as soon as he sees that million-dollar smile, he’s a goner. Soon they’re making out like teenagers again. But when a life-changing role falls into Eden’s lap, Coop just hopes she doesn’t give up on a love that’s meant to be.

Crazy

Book one in the series is ON SALE FOR 99 CENTS!!

There are those moments in life that are provocative in their very existences, that embed in our minds forever, and sometimes our very souls. They change us, mold us, maybe even save us. But some are darker, dangerous. If we allow them to, they control us. Seduce us. Quite possibly even destroy us.

The moment I walked into Sonoma’s Reid Winter Winery and Vineyard and made eye contact with Faith Winter for the first time was one of those moments. Provocative because I know at least one of her secrets, of which, I suspect she has many. Provocative because she believes I was a stranger to her when we met, but I am not. Provocative because I sought her out, with no intention of touching her. But now I have. Now I want her. Now I have to have her. But that changes nothing. It doesn’t change why I came for her.

New 5 Star Review: Stay by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy

Happy Reading!

Stay BN Kobo

Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never even met?

Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch—an anonymous virtual assistant service—is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson.

Although it’s against the rules for her to check his file, she’s 95% sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting… until she has to meet her client. Face to face. Cue: utter panic.

Matt Eriksson is no stranger to heartbreak. He’s still not over the destruction of his marriage, and it sucks to be the only guy on the team who knows the truth—that hockey and long-term relationships are a toxic mix. He barely sees his kids, and dealing with his ex makes him feel insane. The only person in his life who seems to understand is someone who won’t show her pretty face.

But it’s nothing that a pair of fourth row hockey seats can’t fix. Hailey can’t resist the offer. Matt can’t resist Hailey. Good thing he doesn’t have to. Fire up the kiss cam!

Warning: Contains rabid hockey fans, misunderstood dick pics, hockey players at the opera and exploding ovaries.

5 Stars

I absolutely love the WAGs series and cannot get enough of this group! I first fell in love with Jamie and Wes and now everyone since them and Matt and Hailey are no exception. They are fantastic and loveable and just make my heart so freaking happy!

Hailey runs an awesome virtual assistant business called Fetch with her ex-husband, and while their marriage didn’t work out, they are still pretty good friends. They offer around the clock service and give their clients the option to remain anonymous. There’s one account though, that Hailey takes care of personally, that she suspects belongs to her favorite Hockey player, Matt Erickson. Matt is recently divorced, his ex-wife is a pain and he’s spending less and less time with his twin daughters. He’s come to rely on Hailey and Fetch to help him and when he installs a camera in his home to make sure his dog walker isn’t doing something shady, he sees Hottie, um Hailey.

These two have a wonderful relationship even before their relationship! They talk online through Fetch but they have a great connection, they are fun and their personalities just match! And once they actually meet, just perfect for each other. It’s not all easy though, they both have their issues and their hang-ups, especially from their previous marriages but they make it work. They work through things and their story feels real and natural.

This is a fun, feel-good story that made me laugh and oh did it make me swoon! It’s a well-rounded story line and the characters are larger than life, I guarantee you will want to be friends with these people! This can be read as a standalone but Good Boy is just as fantastic so I recommend reading that too! I hope Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy never stop writing together because they are just that great!

New Release & Review: Small Town Scandal (Wingman #5) by Daisy Prescott

 

 Happy release day Daisy Prescott!! Oh my heavens guys this book stole my heart! No really. Carter Kelso was just so stinkin amazing from start to finish. Daisy never fails to make me love her writing more and more, and this time I remembered my love of goats too! Oh and showing us that sometimes a scandalous reputation is more talk than reality. So yeah I loved Carter and Ashley. I hope you will too! Happy reading!

Title: Small Town Scandal
Series: Wingmen #5 (Standalone)
Author: Daisy Prescott
Genre: Second Chance Romance
Release Date: June 27, 2017
Blurb
Another wingmen meets his match and this time it’s
scandalous.
Carter Kelso is a man with a plan. And goats.
Ashley Kingston is a woman with a reputation.
Can he earn back her love before their past catches up with
them and destroys everything?
On the island, my last name is synonymous with scandal. With
a notorious father and a famous brother, I’ve been on the sidelines of our
small town’s gossip circle for years. Nothing to see here. Just a man and his
goats, happily going through life. Not a care in the world. Too bad it’s all
lies.
I’m tired of trying not to be in love with Ashley Kingston,
our very own island jezebel. Some people think she’s a slut. They think they
know her. They’re wrong. Screw them.

Reputations can be deceiving. I should know.

Small Town Scandal is a second chance romance standalone
novel and the fifth book in the Wingmen series. You do not have to read the
other novels first.
amber review       5 Stars
Daisy, Daisy, Daisy. Seriously this story just grabbed me where I feel! It took me 2 solid days after I finished to put my thoughts together because I loved it so much. The Modern Love Stories and Wingman series’ never fail to make me laugh, sigh, fan myself and sometimes even cry. Usually a rom com just makes me happy and gives me feels with lots of warm fuzzies, but ‘A Daisy Prescott story’ is always gonna make me feel so many more things!
Told from Carter Kelso’s pov, the weaving of his and Ashley’s history was perfection! Having read this series I knew that there was history there, but the depth of it just made me root for them as a couple. Ashley has been hurt by so many people and has so many guards up. While Carter has hid behind his playboy ways and his ‘roll with the waves attitude’; we find there is so much insecurity on his part. But also that he’s always put others, especially his family ahead of his own dreams.
So what all did I love about Small Town Scandal? I loved how Daisy used all the things Ashley had been told or that she had said about herself as chapter headers. I loved how Carter was determined to finally get his girl and own his feelings for her. I loved the fierceness as well as the vulnerability that Ashley showed, all the while proving to Carter that he was more than he thought about himself. Gah!! These two may have taken forever for their story to be told but it was oh so worth the wait!!!

Sloan O’Malley just left her entire world behind—her family, her wealth, and even her real name. For the first time in her life, she’s free. She can live the “normal” life she’s always wanted. A life without fear. But there’s nothing safe about her intensely sexy next-door neighbor.

 

Jude MacNamara has no room for innocence in his life. Only revenge. Still, he’s never been able to walk away from the forbidden, and Sloan—who is every inch of pure, mouthwatering temptation—has forbidden written all over her. Only after it’s way too late does he discover the real danger: claiming Sloan as his puts a target on her back. To protect her, Jude is willing risk everything . . . and to hell with the consequences.

Another addictive addition to the O’Malley series!! Oh my for all things Jude MacNamarra!! Sloan O’Malley has definitely met her match when she ends up as his neighbor. But as always, the connections are not far from danger and everything Sloan is trying to escape from seems to be on her tail.
Katee Robert does a masterful job crafting this series with all the twists and turns that never cease to keep me on the edge of my seat! This is a must read series for me with family drama, suspense, mafia and so much steamy goodness to boot! Can’t wait to see what happens next!!

New Release Review: Mature Content by Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell

MatureContent-f

Mature Content

By Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell

Cyberlove Series

Book 4

My life plan is to be brutally honest all the way to the bank. Don’t believe me? I run a popular YouTube channel called TrashyZane, and my claim to fame is oversharing about every aspect of my personal life. Sometimes while tipsy. Not everyone loves my style, but I have a long history of icing out people who can’t handle me. I have no time for judgmental foolishness.

Except, apparently, when it comes to Beau Starr. His channel is the polar opposite of mine, and so is he. Wholesome, inspirational, and clean-cut. Everything about him should turn me off, but when we hook up following a confrontation at a convention, my world flips upside down. Not only does Beau Starr turn me on, he uses the exact combination of dirty talk and roughness needed to turn me out.

But we still hate each other. I think.

5 Stars

I love this series and with every book that comes out I think ‘oh they’ve done it, there’s no way I’m going to love anyone more than…’ and Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell have done it again! I freaking LOVE these two dirty boys so hard! This book was everything I wanted and more – it had snark, dirty talk, cute and love! Beau and Zane are just everything.

So, this story picks up around the end of Ian and Jesse’s book, with a bit of overlap at the beginning. While this can be read as a standalone, I would definitely recommend reading Hard Wired first, just to get some of the little things. Beau and Zane aren’t friends, they don’t get along and in fact they are known for throwing snarky shade at each other on their YouTube channels. On the surface, these two couldn’t be more different, Zane is known as TrashyZane and is brutally honest about who he is, he doesn’t sugar coat things and he doesn’t make excuses. Beau is known for his being positive and having inspirational content, and while he believes what is doing is good, it means he keeps part of himself hidden and has to be ‘on’ in public.

This is enemies to lovers perfection – these two realize that behind closed doors they have the exact same kink desires and can satisfy each other like no has before. It has to stay behind closed doors though, despite how things change between these two and real feelings come into play. They both have reps to maintain and for Beau, there really is a lot on the line.

I seriously adored these two together, whether they were snarking at each other or being absolutely cavity-worthy adorable I loved every bit of their journey. Both Beau and Zane have some personal issues they have to deal with if they really stand a shot at being together, but I really appreciated the way it was handled. This story isn’t overly angsty, it has its drama for sure, but it feels real and believable. This is definitely a must-read and quite possibly my favorite of the series! I really do hope that we get more from Megan and Santino, they definitely create some magic together!

*I voluntarily reviewed this book for the Geekery Book Review

 

EXCERPT

My door burst open, and I sat up from my two-week-old couch divot. Had I locked the door after the pizza man had left days ago? When I heard Jesse’s and Ian’s voices, I thought I was hallucinating. Why were they in L.A.?

“You can’t just barge in,” Jesse said. “Knock.”

“He’s probably just in the bathroom looking at himself in the mirror and taking selfies.” That was Ian.

What was the date? I picked up my phone and swiped to my calendar. Oh fuck, Jesse and Ian were in town scouting apartments. They said they’d drop by to see me and I was….

Jesse stopped so abruptly that Ian crashed into his back. They both stared down at me in horror.

“Beau has facial hair?” Ian clutched his boyfriend’s shoulders. “I honestly thought he had laser hair removal.”

“Seriously?” I said, at the same time Jesse rolled his eyes. “I can grow a beard if I want to. I just never want to, okay? It comes in patchy and it itches.”

“Huh.” Ian watched me suspiciously, like I was going to turn into a werewolf.

“I’m just having a bit of a lie-in,” I said.

Ian’s eyes got bigger. “A lie-in? What are you, British?”

Jesse, my dear cousin, looked downright concerned. “What the hell is wrong with you?”

“Nothing is wrong. Can’t a guy have some downtime?”

Jesse sat down next to me, wrinkling his nose and glancing down at my body. “Beau, downtime for you is like…drinks at the beach. This is—” He gestured at me. “I don’t know what this is. Did you remember we were stopping by?”

I picked up my phone and pretended to look at it. “I might have put it in my calendar wrong. Sorry about that. So, how is apartment hunting for you two lovebirds? Are you two okay in separate chairs here? Any separation anxiety?”

Jesse poked me with his elbow. “Apartment hunting is expensive.” He eyed Ian who’d curled himself up on a chair across from us, gaze on his phone. “But we can talk about that later. Do you want to shower? Change your pants?”

“Are you my mom?”

“Well, no, but I’m concerned!”

“And I’m fine,” I said through gritted teeth, annoyed with his questioning.

“Did you pre-record the last two weeks’ videos?” Ian asked bluntly.

“Yeah, I do that a lot when I travel.”

Ian raised his eyebrows, but I stared back at him in a challenge. Usually I lived for our banter, but today was not the day.

“Okay,” he said slowly. “Just curious, because you look like that. And Zane has been posting weird videos. And there’s some rumors you had some kind of intense convo at the bar at NerdCon.”

I froze. My mom mentioning our videos was no big deal. But actual rumors that we were talking? Shit. I wasn’t ready to explain my actions at the bar, or in the hotel room, with anyone. Not even Jesse. Especially considering how much shit I talked about Zane to him on a regular basis.

“We talked for a minute about the panel, but that was it.” I rolled my eyes and flopped back down on the couch, resting my feet on Jesse, who made a face. “People always want to make drama where there isn’t any. And is Zane posting weird videos out of the norm? He’s Zane.”

Ian eyeballed me suspiciously. “I guess,” he muttered before refocusing on his phone.

“Ian’s been worried about Zane,” Jesse said.

“Oh?” I was so good at pretending everything was okay.

“Yeah, his videos have been off for the last two weeks.”

“Huh. I’m sure he’ll let everyone know why soon or snap back in a little bit.”

“Maybe I’ll reach out to him,” Ian said.

“I’ll see him at Rainbow Ball next week,” I said, not knowing why I was speaking at all. “I’ll check in with him, tell him you asked about him.”

Ian gave me another of his analyzing stares. “Yeah, I’d like that. Tell him I’m thinking of him.”

“Sure,” I said.

It looked like he wanted to say more, but his phone rang. A smile spread over his face, and he jumped up. “Hey, I need to take this. This author wants to hire me for a big commission piece.”

I gestured down the hallway. “You can go into my bedroom if you want.”

“Cool, thanks.”

When Ian was out of the room, I glanced at Jesse and found him still studying me.

“You want to talk now that Ian is gone?” he asked knowingly.

I flicked the seam of my pillow. “What’s that supposed to mean?”

“You’re being weird, and I’m not sure if it’s because of Zane or something else.”

“It’s not because of Zane. Well, some of it is, I guess.”

“Ah.” He grinned. “Does that mean there is a thing with Zane?”

I stood up and ran my hands through my hair, which had a life of its own due to the amount of grease in it. “Fine, yes. Okay? We fucked at NerdCon. It was amazing, but we still hate each other, so it’s not happening again.”

Jesse’s eyes were huge. “I’m…not sure what to say right now?”

I wasn’t either. All our lives, I’d been the bossy one, the leader, and Jesse had been the follower. I was the ambitious one, the person with answers and advice. And now the shoe was on the other foot. Jesse had a career and a happy life, and I was a goddamn mess. But maybe I’d always been a mess. I was just excellent at covering it up with a smile.

Wow – what an emotional journey, so many feels! Zee and Alexis will definitely capture your heart in this powerful story about finding real, true love! Zee is an amazing character, with such a wonderful heart but carrying so much pain. There are secrets he keeps and a guilt that never leaves him. When he meets Alexis, he knows he should stay away but he can’t, he knows that she will change everything.

This really was a journey for these two, both Alexis and Zee have their own issues they are trying to get through. There’s something between them though, something intense and undeniable. It’s not that easy though of course, they may be perfect for each other but it doesn’t seem like they really can have a future, especially in Zee’s mind. The past and present collide in a huge way for both Zee and Alexis and everything unravels for them both.

I adored seeing these two fall in love with each other, they really are two beautiful souls. Zee’s pain and struggles are raw and real but once he starts working through it all and sees what Alexis really means to him, as well as the others in his life, it all comes together beautifully and goes right to the heart! Alexis has such a wonderful heart and her love and support for Zee are exactly what he needs.

Overall, this really was a great read that grabbed me by the heart from the very beginning. I loved their journey, even when it was painful because it all came together so very beautifully! This is definitely a must-read from A.L Jackson.
