BLURB

Bennett Cole had lived next door to Mitchell “Mac” Campbell, III for eighteen years of his life, in the small town of White Acre. They’d never gotten along, never seen eye to eye, and never understood one another…not that they’d ever cared to try.

But when Bennett’s so-called buddies ditched him at a party in the woods where he was assaulted and left for dead, Bennett pulled through. The emotional scars rendered him too terrified to go back to school and face his “friends” or his attackers. With little choice, his family packed up and left town.

Ten years later—at the request of his mother—Bennett returned to the place he’d grown up and the home he’d once felt safe, to oversee the repairs before his childhood house was sold. The contractor? None other than Mac, the once annoying boy next door, who still lives there in the home his parents gifted him.

Being in such close proximity—working together every day, to repair the Coles’ family home—Bennett and Mac’s contentious relationship goes from bad to worse as their personalities continue to clash. But their heated exchanges may not be as antagonistic as they seem. And when new information is revealed, can the men begin to see each other in a different light?

Jenn Review

4 Stars

This was my first book by Morningstar Ashley but definitely not my last! I really enjoyed these characters and their story. I expected it to be heavier than it was but found that I liked the direction of the story. Yes, Mac and Bennett’s journey starts out with a very traumatic experience, and it’s not brushed off, but not the total focus of the story either. I’m also a sucker for an enemies to friends story and these two definitely didn’t get along as teens and it’s fun to watch them snipe and tease their way to a real connection.

We get a backstory on these two along with the building of their new relationship. It’s not just about the physical connection but something more that will change both of these men. Mac definitely made me laugh, I adored his humor and wit and his refusal to give in to Bennett’s sass. Bennett is great in own geeky way too, so smart and a little oblivious at times. I think they make a great couple and loved this journey to happiness for these two oh so meant to be guys! I’m looking forward to reading more from this author for sure!

EXCERPT

Mac was so close he lost his train of thought. So close that Bennett could reach out and grab what he wanted all week, but he was so weak with want, he couldn’t get his mind to cooperate to move his limbs.

“You don’t want a reward for your hard work?”

Mac’s hand came up as if in slow motion. At first, it was just his fingertips, gliding against Bennett’s waist. A shiver rushed through him. Then Mac’s palm touched, warming, moving around his side until it settled at the small of Bennett’s back. Mac slowly pulled him to his chest. He could feel Mac’s heat seep through his own shirt. “There’s nothing you can think of that you’d want?”

Bennett’s breathing picked up. His mind raced. His balls tingled and tightened. He knew Mac had to see the pleading and want through his eyes. Bennett couldn’t hide it, not then, not so close to Mac, feeling his body against his and his breath wisp across his lips as they stared into each other’s eyes. It felt big, like Mac wasn’t just staring into his eyes but into him, searching for something.

Then Mac was closer, so close he could feel the words against his lips. “Because I think you deserve a kiss for being such a good boy. You want that kiss, Princess?”

All Bennett could do is close his eyes and nod. Speaking was beyond his abilities at that point. When did Mac become so sensual, so full of sex, and radiate desire so easily? Bennett loved sex, the tease, the lead up to the physical explosion of pleasure. But Mac brought it to a whole other level. Using words and small innocent touches, turning it dirty and provocative.

“B, open your eyes.”

Bennett listened. As hard as it was to not just stay floating in the place of just feeling, he opened his eyes. What he saw made him moan. The want, the need in Mac’s eyes matched what Bennett felt coursing through his own body. He couldn’t think of anything else, because as lost as he was in the sensations Mac had him feeling with his eyes closed, he was just as lost in the heat that poured off the man now.

“What did you think would happen, B? Coming out here all flustered and angry with just a t-shirt and those cute boxers on?”

At first, Bennett had no idea what he was talking about, but then he remembered. He slept in his ‘Particle Physics Gives me a Hadron’ boxers and had been so lost in his anger that he’d never put on pants.

He swallowed, trying to loosen his tight throat so he could speak, but Mac leaned in, lips touching Bennett’s ear, and the only thing that came out was a whimper. He never whimpered. Fuck.

“Nothing turns me on more than you in full on Princess mode with your geek on full display.” And to prove that, Mac pulled them tighter together with the hand that still sat in the small of his back. Bennett could feel Mac’s hard length pressed against his. The barrier of the worn jeans that Mac had on and Bennett’s boxers was like paper between them.

“I’ve been good this week too. Not kissing your sweet lips, not touching your body, not taking you against any and all surfaces when you were so goddamn sexy with the paint splattered all over you and your shirt sticking to your body, soaked from your sweat. So, maybe I deserve a reward too.”

“Oh, god, yes.”

Mac pulled his face back just enough so that Bennett could look into his eyes again. He had that cocky grin playing at his lips but this time it didn’t annoy Bennett, it lit him on fire.

Mac’s eyes dropped and stared at his lips, making his nerves come alive. He licked his lips and Mac moaned. That sound. God, that sound went straight to the center of all that swirled around them.

Bennett remembered his moans from that blowjob, the sound doing just as much that night as seeing Mac on his knees soft lips wrapped around Bennett’s cock. And hearing it again brought those memories flashing through his mind taking an already heated moment and making it hotter and more.

“Please.” He didn’t know what else to say. It’d felt like they’d stood there frozen forever. Simple touches doing more than any amount of foreplay Bennett had ever experienced.

“I like when you beg me, B.”

MORNINGSTAR ASHLEY LOGO - Long

Morningstar Ashley is a transplant from the Yankee-controlled territory of New York, and now finds herself in the heartland of cowboys and longhorns—Texas. Armed with her imagination, wit, and trusty sidekicks in the form of her two crazy kids, devoted dorky husband, big lap dog, and rambunctious cats, Morningstar spends her time reading the books she loves, crafting her own characters, and arguing the merits of hot chocolate over the bitter brew known as coffee (Hot chocolate wins, FYI.).

Morningstar loves graphic design, so much so she returned to school for a degree and regularly tromps her exams and maintains a stellar GPA that occasionally leaves her confounded and pleased. She can while away the hours on new designs, and perfection isn’t too much to hope for when it comes to her art.

Her ideal career would be full-time artist and author, and so far, she hasn’t come up against anything to stop her on her journey. A fierce and devoted friend, Morningstar tries her best to always be kind, always be learning, and always improving. Giving up isn’t an option, and her greatest talent may be in her ability to convince others not to give up, either. After a lifetime of trying to get people to realize her first name wasn’t Ashley, Morningstar decided the best way to settle the debate was to put her name on a book cover. An avid reader and fiction reviewer for the blog and site Diverse Reader, Morningstar harbored a dream to one day join the ranks of her heroes, and she sweeps into the contemporary gay romance genre with her debut novel, LETTING GO. With plans to conquer gay, lesbian and LGBTQA+ romance, Morningstar has her gaze set on the horizon, her determination her own guiding star.

One man’s passion, another man’s lies. Can love fix even the darkest of hearts?



Trent Hanson is a figure skating phenom adored by millions around the world. His whole life has been dedicated to the sport he loves even when the sport – and his own family – have turned against him. From the playground to the Olympics to his parent’s living room, Trent has fought against bullies and homophobes to be the out and proud gay man he is. But the constant fighting has left Trent tired, lonely, and skittish. All those fears will have to be shelved though when he’s hired to spend the summer working with the Harrisburg Railers ice hockey team. Who would have guessed that the man fate has decided to pair him off with is Dieter Lehmann, all-around sex god and a man who seems to have everything to prove and doesn’t care who he hurts to get what he wants.



Dieter has spent too many years languishing in the minors and a secret addiction to prescription painkillers means his career is in a downward spiral. His ex is blackmailing him and he’s close to walking away from it all. But when he’s called up in the run for the Stanley Cup to cover injuries he has a taste of what it’s like playing in the NHL and he realizes that a place on the Railers roster is what he wants more than anything. More than listening to his heart, and even more than caring for the infuriating figure skater who gets under his skin. When he crosses the line to get what he wants, he knows he has lost his way. He has to change, but is it too late for both his career and any chance he might have at love?


Jenn Review

3.5 – 4 Stars

I really enjoy this series and this group of hockey players and the addition of Dieter and Trent is great! For me this felt like an opposites attract – both are a bit of a mess story and I totally fell for these two! Both of these guys are dealing with a lot when this story starts and my heart definitely hurt for both of them. When they meet, their connection is immediate but there are a lot of issues they are going to have to work through if their relationship is going to make it.

 

Dieter has just been signed to the Railer’s hockey team, but he’s got some things he’s hiding, like a knee injury and an addiction to pain pills. He thinks he’s got it under control, but that really isn’t the case. Trent is dealing with the aftermath of his stepfather/manager stealing all his money and gambling it all away. He’s now fighting to keep his mother’s home and his rink and when a reality show opportunity comes his way, he’s quick to accept, until he hears he has to work with hockey players. He’s determined to make enough money to save the house and the rink though so he’ll take on those hockey guys.

 

I liked these two together right from the start. Both men have their issues and their flaws but they are also good men and so sweet together. Trent knows that loving someone with addiction issues can be painful, but he still gives his heart to Dieter, but he’s fierce and strong too and doesn’t let Dieter get away with anything. Dieter is strong too, and having Trent in his life shows him what he needs to do, for himself, his career and his relationship. I loved that these two work through things together and really don’t hold back. There are still some secrets to be revealed, but they go through it together. I really enjoy this group of characters and their journeys together and am looking forward to what is next for this group!

COVER DESIGN: Reese Dante

Ryan Haskell loves everything about the wine business. He’s fortunate to work at one of the most prestigious wineries in Napa Valley doing something he enjoys with the people who are like family to him. But he could do without the good-natured intern slash former jock with the wicked grin who always seems to be in the way. Ryan isn’t sure why the new guy is under his skin when everyone else loves him. Thankfully he’ll be gone after the holidays.

Danny Meyers can’t believe his luck when he lands an internship at Conrad Winery. It’s the perfect temporary gig to wrap up his graduate studies. He’s left his dreams of tennis stardom on the court to focus on a new career and a new life. However, he didn’t count on the spark of attraction he feels for his prickly co-worker. When their tentative friendship blossoms into something more than either man counted on, they may have to change direction and lean into a holiday wish.

Jenn Review

4 Stars

This was a cute holiday read to get you in that holiday spirit, it’s a sweet story with wine, cuteness and finding love! Ryan and Danny both work at the same winery, Ryan an employee and Danny an intern figuring out his future. These two do have a bit of a rough start but their chemistry is undeniably and so it their cuteness.

Ryan is definitely prickly to start with and it took a bit of time to warm up to him but once I got to know him I loved him just as much as I did the outgoing and fun Danny. I think these two are a great match for each other, balancing each other out. I loved the give and take between these two, especially when it took some effort from Ryan but paid off in the end. This is a fun holiday read and I totally fell for these two!

EXCERPT

“Nothing. Um…I need a few minutes to get ready,” I said. I didn’t bother moving. I still felt sluggish and half-asleep. I needed more caffeine before I could even think about swinging a racket.

“Take your time. The courts are empty. We’re good. Sit back, fuel up, and tell me about Batman, Nutella, and whatever else cranks your chain.” He snickered at my blank stare then added, “I’m just shootin’ the shit here, Ry. Just tell me about yourself. What came first…wine, music, or the Caped Crusader?”

“The Caped Crusader, of course,” I scoffed without heat. “I went through a strong Batman phase when I was a kid followed by my teenage music years. The wine phase came in college, but I still love all three. And Nutella.”

Danny let out an amused huff and sat back to observe me. God only knew what he saw. My curly hair had a tendency to do its own thing in the morning. No doubt it was wild. The stretched out, ancient concert tee, black boxer briefs, and bare feet screamed geeky bachelor louder than my superhero art.

“That’s cool. You know what you like and you stick with it. Seems like a good trait.”

“Thanks.” I studied him over the rim of my coffee cup then took a sip and set it on the table again. “What about you? What are you into besides wine and tennis?”

“Beer and football,” he quipped.

I lifted my brow inquisitively. “Honestly, that’s what I thought. You look like you’d be at home in a country bar guzzling brews with a bunch of beefy former jocks who hung up their shoulder pads for cowboy hats.”

“Damn, boy. You’ve got me all figured out, don’t you?” he asked irritably before reaching over to tug at my wayward curls. “Guzzle that there coffee, slick, and let’s get ourselves a court.”

The boxers with T-shirt combo surely did nothing to enhance my diva-esque moment but that couldn’t be helped, I mused as I rolled my eyes and stood. “I’ll be out shortly.”

Danny snickered in response. “Just hurry it up. If you aren’t out here in five minutes or less, I’m coming in there.”

“Is that a threat or a promise?”

“It’s whatever you want it to be, Ry.”

The low timbre of his voice sounded sexy as hell. Thankfully, my brain intervened before I made a fool of myself and offered him something he didn’t want. It was a close call. Closer than it should have been. Shit. I needed more coffee.

Ben has Christmas, cats, and mistletoe on his side…. Jason doesn’t stand a chance



For Ben Slater, moving back to Bristol means being closer to his family, living with his best mate, and volunteering at the local animal shelter. But there’s also Jason, his best mate’s eldest brother. Ben’s had a crush on Jason for as long as he can remember, but the eleven-year age gap has always seemed insurmountable.



Jason Armitage works as a vet at his uncle’s practice. He owns a cute cottage on the outskirts of the city, and a loving dog. The one thing missing is someone to share it all with. His brother’s best friend seems a bad choice, but Jason can’t help taking a second look. Ben’s changed a lot since Jason last saw him; both in appearance and attitude. Gone is the shy young boy, replaced with a confident, twenty-four-year-old man.



In the run up to Christmas, the festive period gives Ben the ideal opportunity to show Jason what he has to offer. But concerns for his brother’s feelings hold Jason back. If they have any chance of making this work, Ben must convince Jason that he’s old enough to know what he wants, and Jason needs to believe that a relationship with his brother’s best friend won’t ruin their friendship.


Jenn Review

3.5 – 4 Stars

Not Just for Christmas is a sweet, feel-good holiday romance with cute pets, a childhood crush, some well placed mistletoe and a slow burn HEA! Ben has had a crush on his best friend Liam’s brother Jason since they were kids, but Jason is eleven years older and always saw Ben and Liam as kids. Well, now Ben is 24 and moving back to his hometown and living with Liam. He knows he’ll run into Jason again, but this time he hopes he seems him for the man he’s grown up to be.

 

I really felt like I got to know both Ben and Jason, and man these two are adorably awkward together. They are both attracted to each other but are hesitant to act on that attraction since there are friendships and families involved. As the holidays approach though, and these two spend some more time together, and thanks to that sneaky mistletoe, Ben finally makes his move.

 

I definitely enjoyed this story, it’s got a slow burn and low angst, but I really liked Ben and Jason and was totally rooting for them. These guys definitely think before they leap, but it really does all come together nicely. This is exactly the kind of story that gets me a holiday happy mood!

Excerpt



Ben tried not to look, but inevitably his gaze was drawn to Jason still sat on the sofa. He stood as Pete stepped back, and Ben got a proper look at him. Ben wasn’t the only one who’d changed a little over the past couple of years. The last time he’d seen Jason, his hair had been short, like an army cut, and he’d had a beard. He’d looked hot then, but now…. Ben had to forcibly shut his mouth so he didn’t gape.

Jason’s thick dark hair, still shaved at the sides, was now a good couple of inches longer on top. And he was clean shaven. Ben kind of missed the beard, but without it Jason looked much younger, and his strong jawline was a thing of beauty. He looked thinner, too. Ben frowned because Jason ate like a horse and had always been bulkier than his brothers. That thought somehow made its way out of Ben’s mouth.

“Have you lost weight?”

Jason laughed softly, one hand immediately going to his stomach. He patted his belly and sighed. “God don’t you start. Mum’s already been on at me about not eating properly.” He pulled Ben in for a quick hug. “It’s good to see you, even if you do put the rest of us to shame.”

Oh God, that voice. As smooth and deep as Ben remembered.

LAST CALL

M/M/M ROMANCE

CHRISTINA LEE & FELICE STEVENS

RELEASE DATE: 11.29.17

Last Call Cover

COVER DESIGN: Reese Dante

BLURB

Quinn Monahan and Grayson Page have been friends since high school. Despite their differences, they’ve been there for each other through thick and thin. Opening Last Call together, a bar tucked away in the small town of Heartsville, PA seemed a natural progression—even if it makes it harder to live with the secret longing they’ve always had for each other.

Hoping to score an easy buck and a place to sleep, unemployed circus roadie Emery Woods chooses Last Call to run a few bets and enjoy a decent beer before moving on. When he finds himself stranded, the unexpected kindness Quinn and Gray show him leads to temporary work and a couch to lay his head. Sensing unresolved history between Quinn and Gray, he squashes his immediate draw to the men, opting to avoid trouble. But as days turn into weeks, denying the attraction is easier said than done.

When the men finally give in to the simmering sexual tension, it quickly develops into more than a way to pass the lonely nights. And as they begin to lean on each other for emotional support, it becomes nearly impossible to think of one man without the other two. But while Quinn and Gray are afraid to cross the line of friendship between them, Emery fears once they do, he’ll quickly be cast aside. A real family is finally within their grasp, but unless the men can learn to trust each other, they just might miss their hearts’ last call home.

Jenn Review

4.5 Stars

I am a big fan of both Felice Stevens and Christina Lee and together they are just fantastic! I loved these guys and how they grew into their relationship! Full of passion and love, this really was a great read!

Quinn and Gray have been best friends for years and together run a bar called Last Call. They have both had feelings for each other for a long time but have both also been afraid it would ruin their friendship so they kept quiet about their feelings. Then along comes a stranger with stunning green eyes and he catches both Quinn and Gray’s attention. Emery is just trying to get by, living a life on the road with no home. He’s hesitant to accept Quinn’s help and he knows Gray doesn’t trust him but there’s something about these two men. As these three build a friendship together, so much more develops between all three.

I really liked how real these characters felt. Emery and Gray are really so much alike, hiding pain from rough childhoods. And then there’s Quinn, so sweet and positive, bringing light to both Emery and Gray. I loved them together, their struggles and happiness so raw and real. I think the authors have done a great job of bringing together the love that Quinn and Gray have always shared and also how Emery truly fits into that love. Last Call is has scorching chemistry, sweet moments and is a beautiful story of three men finding love together. This was a great read and I hope to see these two collaborate again because I loved it!

EXCERPT

“Hey. You don’t believe him, right? He doesn’t know the real you.” Gray wrapped his arms around me, pulling me close. Wordlessly I sought his mouth, needing his solid warmth. Electric sparks showered through me when he crushed our lips together, and I slid my hands through his hair, clutching the silky waves between my fingers.

Heat rose between us as he took my face between the palms of his hands and sucked hungrily at my tongue. I molded my body to his, my dick aching and hard. Our breaths mingled, and I licked at the scratchy, tender skin of Gray’s neck, drinking in the tang of his scent. So strong and warm and male.

A hand touched my back and Emery kissed my neck, then sucked my earlobe into his mouth. I could feel the push of his cock, and I became a trembling mass of sensation, each stroke ramping up my desire.

“The truck is still in the driveway, full of liquor.” Emery panted against my ear.

“Fuck the liquor.” Who could think when Emery’s lips trailed hot kisses down my neck?

“I’d rather fuck you.”

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.

Today I’m excited to share my review for Pulled Under by Lisa Renee Jones! It’s an action packed, romantic suspense book with a sexy alpha and sassy and strong female, definitely a must read!

Pulled Under Cover

ABOUT

A new sexy standalone from Lisa Renee Jones…

He is blond, tattooed, and dangerous. She’s as beautiful as she is mysterious and could be his destruction…

Asher wasn’t always a member of the elite Walker Security team, he was a billionaire’s son, who rebelled against his father’s controlling hand, and ended up in New York City’s underground of drugs, rock n roll, and danger. But that is long behind him, and while his tattoos and long blond hair remain, he’s now a chameleon, far more comfortable in a suit and tie than a leather jacket.

Or so he likes to tell himself.

But now Walker Security needs him back inside the underground club scene for a police case they’re working. Women are dying, murdered, and the clock is ticking until another victim is claimed. When Asher is pulled back into this toxic world he meets Sierra, who is as beautiful as she is mysterious. A woman who calls to a darker side of him, long suppressed, unleashing it in what becomes wicked hot passion and obsession. But Sierra has a secret, one that leads her, and Asher, to a dangerous place, and game, with dangerous players, and the game is about life or death.

Jenn Review

5 Stars

Pulled Under, what a perfect title! I felt like this book totally consumed me, between the hot chemistry between Sierra and Asher, the action, the suspense, it just had it all! I love Lisa Renee Jones’s books and this is one of my favorites!

Asher is working under cover as a bartender, trying to catch a serial killer. Sierra is a woman on the run, desperately trying to hide and a job in a bar seems like a place to make some money. She doesn’t expect Asher though, or their connection and chemistry and when he discovers she has secrets he wants to help and for the first time might actually be able to. See, Sierra isn’t running from an abusive husband, no she’s running from an abusive husband who is trying to kill her and he just so happens to be one of the richest and most connected men in the country. Asher has connections though too and Walker Security has his back and he’s not going to let anyone get to Sierra again.

I loved this book and I could not put it down. It was exciting and intense but also loving and passionate too, Asher and Sierra have chemistry right from the start. I really enjoyed the investigation side of it as well, getting into the details of the serial killer crimes as well as the hunt for Sierra’s husband. The characters are great, I feel like I really know these people and their stories are exciting and still loving. Action packed and fun, this is definitely a favorite for me and I’m already looking forward to the next book in this series.

EXCERPT

“You want more now, and yet you don’t want it enough to make it end. And I already don’t want it to end, Sierra.”
She leans into me, her head resting on my shoulder, emotion that isn’t pleasure radiating off of her and crashing into me. I cup her face and tilt her chin up, my thumb stroking her cheek. “What are you thinking?”
“Nothing. Everything. Can you kiss me again already?”
“Where, Sierra?”
“Where?”
“Where do you want me to kiss you? Tell me.”
“Everywhere.” She pushes to her toes, and her lips find mine, looking for an escape, trying to drive her demons away.
I want to demand her answer, make her tell me where she wants my mouth, but I feel her desperation, her need to escape whatever is in her head. And so, I press my lips to hers, I kiss her mouth, drinking her in, and I don’t taste him this time. I taste her. I taste us. I taste need and hunger and passion. “I want you naked,” I say, my hands sliding inside her jeans and panties. “In every possible way, Sierra.”
“I’m pretty sure I’m already there, and it’s terrifying.” She flattens her hand on my chest. “If you turn into an asshole, I swear—”
“You can punish me,” I promise, “and I’m still willing to offer suggestions.”
“If you turn into an asshole after I trusted you,” she says. “I won’t need suggestions, Mr. Ex-Navy SEAL who won’t be able to hide from my wrath.”
Fuck, I’m crazy about this woman. “Good thing I’m not going to turn into an asshole. I want you naked,” I repeat, and this time, I make it happen. I lower myself to one knee and take her jeans and panties with me. My arm wraps her waist and I lift her, dragging her clothing away, and setting her back down. My hands settle on her hips then and I look up at her. She stares down at me, the simmering look in her eyes all about arousal, submission. And I want that from her and not because it’s some sex game, of which I could play and play well.
I press my lips to her belly and just that easily she trembles, and it only makes me want more. Everything is more with her.  I drag my mouth lower and lower…

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.

4 Stars

Aden Lowe delivers another fun, exciting story with Shine On! I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started, but I really enjoyed this story from start to finish! The story is entertaining and different and these characters – oh they are larger than life! We’ve got true hillbillies, a nurse from the city and a Mexican cartel, yeah definitely entertaining for sure.

Zeb is the oldest in his family, he takes responsibility for them. With three younger brothers and a younger sister, all with names starting with Z, it’s a family thing, he’s got his hands full. His youngest brother is known for bringing trouble when he comes home and this time is no different but when his sister brings home her best friend from the city the trouble just multiplies. Gabriella works as an ER nurse, is engaged and thinks she’s got a good thing going. After working extra shifts she comes home to find her fiance in a rage where he turns to violence, beating Gabriella. She calls the only person she can think of and when Zipporah shows up she promises to keep her safe. Gabriella quickly learns that her fiance isn’t who she thought he was, but also maybe Zeb, this hillbilly alpha may not be what she first thought either.

This family has quite the adventure, Zeb is determined to keep his family and Gabriella safe, no matter what that means. He gave up on women and relationships as a teenager but Gabriella makes him feel again, and it’s something he can’t deny. These two are funny together, both stubborn and really from different worlds, but their connection is undeniable. Even though they really shouldn’t, these two fall for each other and it’s just so sweet. I love the mix of action and romance and am hoping we get to see these two again. I’m really looking forward to more in this series, these quirky characters have definitely caught my attention and my heart!

 

Excerpt

“Let me help.” Startled, she stiffened, then let her arms go around my neck. “I’m Zeb, by the way.” Her unruly hair tickled my neck and chest, reminding me I hadn’t bothered with a shirt.

“Gabriella. I’m okay to walk.”

“And I’m okay to carry you.”

Blurb/Synopsis:

The attraction between Brent Berkheimer and Scott Spearman peels the wallpaper, but Brent is Scott’s boss, and they’re both too professional to go beyond flirting. Their priorities realign after Scott is badly injured in an accident that costs him his hearing, and Brent realizes what is truly important… he wants Scott.

Scott first pushes Brent away, fearing a new romance will just add to his problems, but perhaps he will find unexpected strength and solace in Brent’s support as he struggles to communicate with the world in a new way.

Just as they decide the chance of a happy future together is worth the risk, Scott and Brent discover darker challenges in their way—including evidence that the “accident” Scott suffered may not have been so accidental.

4 – 4.5  Stars

Andrew Grey delivers another touching, heart felt story that embraces a character with a disability that really doesn’t define the person or the relationship. I love his ability to empower characters and bring love to everyone and this book is another great example of that storytelling. Heart Unheard is the story of Brent and Scott, two co-workers with crazy chemistry but both a little afraid of acting on it since they work together. When Scott is in an accident that changes his life, it’s time for Brent to step up and be the man Scott really needs.

I loved these two – right from the start – their adorable flirting got my attention right from the start. These two have undeniable chemistry but age and work seem to keep them apart, that is until Scott is in an accident that leaves him deaf. Brent doesn’t know how to react other than to be there for Scott and show him what he should have all along, that he really does matter to him. Their budding relationship has challenges, Scott is trying to come to terms with his new life and Brent wants to make his real feelings known. But these two work it out. And oh what a journey to that point!

Scott struggles for sure, what a shock to have to adapt to, the silence, but he does and he does it with strength. He is determined to take his life back and he’s finding he’s determined to do it with Brent. Brent wants his real feelings to be known, not just pity, but his deep love for Scott. I loved seeing these two navigate through their challenges as well as the sweet moments to find that love together. This is a touching story, one that went straight to the feels and will stay with me. It’s not about the ability or disability but the love and finding the way through the challenges life can throw at you. Heart Unheard is another great example of why Andrew Grey is a must read for me!

Excerpt.png

Scott was in a small room, the bed surrounded by monitors with a number of tubes and cords hooked to him. His usually robust cheeks were sallow, his normally intense eyes closed, his pouty lips pale.

“Please remain quiet.”

“Of course,” Brent said as he pulled forward the small chair and sat next to the bed. He didn’t ask her a bunch of questions about how he was doing because Brent knew she couldn’t really tell him anything without specific written permission.

The nurse checked Scott over and left the room.

“Hey, Scott. It’s Brent. I wanted to stop by and see you.” He blinked as Scott’s chest slowly rose and fell. “I read somewhere that people can sometimes hear things when they’re out like this. So I hope you get better.” He turned to make sure no one was around to hear him, then leaned closer. “I should have told you how I felt.” He sniffed and took one of the tissues from the box on the tray table. He reached for Scott’s hand and slid their fingers together. Brent probably didn’t have a right to do that, but he wanted Scott to know he was there.

To his surprise, Scott’s fingers squeezed his just a little. At first, he wasn’t sure it was real, but Scott did it again. Brent gently rubbed the back of his hand but received no further movement in response.

“Are you Brent?” a man who had to be Scott’s dad asked. He looked so much like him, only an older, more weathered, and very worried version, with touches of gray in his hair.

“Yes,” Brent whispered, setting Scott’s hand back on the blankets, his cheeks heating. “I was just trying to make a connection with him. I think he might have squeezed my hand a little.” He wondered what Scott’s dad—and then his mom as she followed him inside—must be thinking with him holding Scott’s hand.

“He did that last night before we left. It’s the only indication that we’ve had that he’s there and knows we’re here.” Scott’s mother approached, and Brent stood to give her the chair. She sat, gently stroking Scott’s hand. “Is there something between you and my son?” She lifted her gaze, and it was like she was looking deep into his soul. It was immediately evident where Scott got his amazing eyes, even if hers were red and definitely filled with concern. “I heard what you were saying to him before we came in.”

“Don’t mind Carolyn. She has bat-like hearing sometimes.” Reggie stepped to the other side of the bed, looking at Scott. If Brent were to hazard a guess, Reggie was willing his son to wake up. The worry and sheer willpower were written on the lines of his furrowed brow.

“Reggie,” she said gently, then turned to Brent. “Scott talked about you all the time. I think he may have a crush on you.” She looked him over. “I can see why, but aren’t you a little old for him?”

Brent nodded. “That’s why nothing ever happened.” He turned back to Scott, not believing he was having this conversation. “I’m his manager and….” There were so many reasons why he’d never said anything to Scott, though all of them seemed too stupid now. Scott lay on the bed, largely unmoving, and none of Brent’s reasons mattered. All that did matter was that Scott would recover and get better again.

“I see,” she said, as though there were some great meaning behind Brent’s words. “He told me about the time the oil gun sprang a leak and he got sprayed. You got the oil shut off and him out of there and cleaned off so fast, before it could get in his eyes.”

“He told you that?” Brent closed his eyes, stifling a groan, as his cheeks had to be turning beet red. He’d cleaned Scott off and had damn near kissed him just because he was relieved Scott was all right. Just as he’d gotten close, Scott had opened his eyes and their gazes had met, but Brent had backed away. His cowardice had taken over the way it usually did.

Carolyn nodded. “He said you were gentle and made sure he was okay before everything else. Then you apparently took apart the equipment, fixed it, and made sure that didn’t happen again.” She smiled. “Scott tells us stories about work all the time, and many of them featured you.”

What was he supposed to say to that? Brent wanted to hide and lick his wounds somewhere. It seemed that the teasing and flirting Scott had done was more than just playing. Brent had never been sure, but now he knew. Scott had cared and might have been truly interested, but now it might be too late.

“That’s so nice to know.” Brent couldn’t help looking at Scott and wondering what might have been if he had just had the guts.

Journalism student Gabe Martin gets his first professional assignment—to write about a Christmas charity dinner that benefits a children’s home. It sounds like a total snooze-fest until Gabe learns that the event’s Santa is a mystery man. He shows up in costume and no one has a clue who he is. Uncovering Santa’s identity sounds like the perfect angle to turn a fluff piece into serious journalism.

Mack “The Mountain” McDonall, at 6’10”, is University of Wisconsin-Madison’s enormous star wrestler. When Gabe first claps eyes on him at a wrestling match, it’s lust at first sight. Gabe’s friend, Jordan, sets up the pair on a date. But when Gabe chatters on about his plans for outing Santa, Mack goes cold, and their first meeting becomes an epic fail.

As Gabe researches the children’s home, he learns that Mack has secrets a guy famous for being a brute wouldn’t want the world to know. Can Gabe find his holiday spirit, write a killer article, win the heart of a surly giant, and give everyone a very merry Christmas?


Jenn Review
4 Stars
I feel like I can count on Eli Easton to deliver a holiday story that will totally get me in the spirit and just warm my heart and she has done it again this year! I really enjoyed this sweet, fun read from start to finish! Mack and Gabe are two great college guys, and while it’s a slow start to their relationship, there’s definitely a connection between these two and I loved how their story unfolded.
Gabe is a sassy journalism student who has received his first assignment at the newspaper where he is an intern, and he also needs something for his investigative journalism class so he has plans to turn a Christmas puff piece into something more. Then he meets college wrestler Mack, who at 6’10” is a mountain of a man and definitely captures Gabe’s attention. It definitely seems like there is something between these two but when Gabe reveals his plans for the Christmas story, that connection is tested. Gabe learns more about Mack and his life he learns he may need to rethink his approach if he wants to keep Mack around and gain his trust.
There’s a slow burn with these two but it’s completely adorable! Gabe is a go-getter for sure but Mack is reserved and quiet and he blushes. Yes, this mountain blushes! I really loved seeing Mack open up to Gabe and let himself go with him. These two are just perfect for each other! This book really is the perfect feel-good read to get in the holiday spirit, complete with Santa, wonderful and funny kids and these two sweet men falling in love. Once again, Ms. Easton delivers a story that made my heart so very happy!

Something inside me snapped.

“Chase, I need you. Please, come.”

Teagan’s words screamed from the screen of my phone. My heart started pounding and I started to sweat. I felt like I might pass out as I was sucked into a vortex of emotions and memories I’d tried desperately to forget.

Teagan Tessler was the love of my life. My professional soccer career was a big part of the future we planned to have together, but an offer with Arsenal, one of England’s premier soccer teams, sent me to London a year ahead of schedule. Just months after I left, Teagan betrayed me with my best friend without an explanation. I was completely and utterly destroyed.

Six years later, I can finally breathe again and my professional and personal life is in a good place; but, now this. I’d have to be insane to even consider ripping open those old wounds, but whatever she needed, it had to be huge.

The truth of my feelings resonated: I should shut off the phone and forget her forever, but my traitorous heart told me to get on a plane, no questions asked.

One decision can ruin your life… Maybe another one can save it.

From USA Today bestselling author, Kahlen Aymes, Trading Yesterday is a sexy roller coaster of emotion, ultimate loss, desperate longing, betrayal and forgiveness that will restore your faith in unconditional love. You’ll be left gasping for more! The Remembrance Trilogy readers will love this book.

Jenn Review

3 – 3.5 Stars

So this is one of those tough reviews for me because I loved Kahlen Aymes writing style and I adored Chase, I mean he’s amazing but I just could not get on board with Teagan. I wanted to like her, I tried, but I just couldn’t do it. This really was an emotional story and my heart hurt for Chase and what he had to go through, even for Jensen at times but it was a struggle for me to let go of Teagan’s mistakes.

Teagan and Chase were madly in love with each other and as Chase’s college soccer career is coming to and end, he gets the best opportunity ever, a chance to place for Arsenal. It means moving to London, but he hopes that Teagan won’t be far behind him and that this opportunity will set them up for life. Teagan has a secret though, and she doesn’t want to hold Chase back from following his dreams. Years later, Teagan’s daughter is fighting cancer for the second time and it’s now time for all those secrets to be revealed and old wounds ripped open.

Teagan and Chase definitely have a strong connection and love, even after all the years, the lies and the pain, I could definitely feel that. These two were supposed to be together forever. I think Ms. Aymes really delivers on the high emotion and pulls at the heart strings with this group. I adored Chase and Remi and together, they owned my heart. I do have to say that I am curious about Jensen and what is going to happen in his story. Beautiful writing, full of the feels but unfortunately I just couldn’t connect with some of the story. This definitely won’t be my last Kahlen Aymes book, I really do love her writing style!
