Review – Callan’s Atlas by K. Webster

Callan's Atlas (Brigs Ferry Bay, #3)

Callan’s Atlas; Brigs Ferry Bay #3
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 11, 2021

Genre/Tropes: MM/Smalltown/Age Gap/Forbidden Romance

Author: K. Webster

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Hitting me in all the feels while riding the smexy train and stopping at all the freaky stops, Callan’s Atlas is another win on my stack of “I LOVE THIS BOOK” pile. K. Webster is fast becoming synonymous with forbidden and sensual while making the story tender and meaningful, she rocks this trope out of the park and frankly I can’t get enough.

Living in a small town is never easy. Hiding doesn’t exactly work, especially when you are born to stand out. Callan normally lives in a world of color, but that world was shattered when he was nearly beaten to death over someone else’s bigotry. Callan isn’t able to pull himself from his dark cloud until he meets Atlas Larson, a new cop who doesn’t stand for the hate that’s been brewing in Brigs Ferry. Atlas doesn’t take the agression towards gays with a passive nature and plans to clean up the town one bigot at a time, especially when he meets Callan the one person who makes returning worth staying.

Atlas Larson doesn’t wave his freak flag in public, but he doesn’t hide it either. He left twenty years ago when Sheriff Bell caught him kissing another boy and told him that they didn’t accept his kind. Now Atlas is back and he’s not going to tolerate someone doing the same thing to someone that happened to him or worse. When he meets the young man he’s instantly drawn to Callan, for reasons he can’t quite pinpoint except perhaps he sees the brokenness in the young man that he was himself at that age. Even given their age difference and the fact that Callan is the soon to be brother-in-law to his new boss, isn’t enough reason to stay away. Bringing color into Callan’s world and watching him smile makes sense and he won’t let anyone say different.

Atlas and Callan are one of the hottest MM couples I think I’ve read from K. Webster. Whew…hold on to your panties because these two certainly steam up the sheets, but more than that they tackle a lot of tough issues. Hate crime is no joke and while Callan could use a champion in Atlas, their relationship is so much more than hero worship. Atlas comes across as this unruly cop, but he cares about the town and those close to him. Without outright saying it he gives Callan back his light and color, which is the real gift in finding his power and beginning to heal.

I loved returning to this small town and not only running into past characters, but also expanding the cast as it continues to grow. Callan and Atlas were perfect additions to the small town and I can hardly wait to return to see what happens next.

Synopsis:

From USA Today bestselling author K Webster comes a steamy and emotional age-gap MM romance!

When we moved from New York to Maine, life was supposed to get easier, not harder.
Change, for me, was difficult.
I became the target of terrible crimes that resulted in sending a once-beloved man of the community to prison for a very long time.

Now that I’m eighteen, I could move back to the Big Apple, but fear has me rooted in place.
I hate what that monster did to me.
Looks like I’m stuck here for good.
Brigs Ferry Bay’s unhappiest gay.

Each day, the darkness closes in around me more and more.
Black clothes. Black mood. Black thoughts. Black eyeliner.
The color in my life bled from me months ago and never came back.

Until him.
Atlas Larson.
Newest cop on the BFB police force.
Too hot. Too strong. Too old for me. Too…everything.

Atlas is a rebellious, bossy, mouthy brute who likes to provoke me.
Every encounter starts with heat and ends with an argument.
Color begins sneaking back into my world little by little.
He reminds me of who I once was and shows me who I’m meant to be.

I crave to leave this town once and for all.
But now that I’ve found the courage to do it, the arrogant jerk with a badge might find a way to keep me here and in his arms forever.

***Brigs Ferry Bay is a steamy MM romance series. While each book can be read as a standalone, in order to get the full experience, they’re best read in order. Enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, hurt comfort, age-gap romance, and so much more. Fall in love with the charming small-town gay romances of Brigs Ferry Bay…***

New Release – Headlines by Ella Frank

Headlines, the intense and all too sexy conclusion of the Prime Time Series from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank is available now!

Xander If I had to describe Sean Bailey, it would be as the sexy, caring, wonderful man I’ve gone and fallen in love with. I never could’ve imagined a world where he was my everything. But with each passing day, the connection between us grows stronger, and the idea of a world without him is something I can’t imagine.

But Sean’s love doesn’t come without complications. As the older brother of my lifelong best friend, this new love has caused relationships to break down and communication to become stilted, and the one question that remains is: am I willing to give up the love and friendship of one for the chance of love and forever with another?

Sean I didn’t mean to fall in love with Alexander Thorne, my brother’s ex and the number one prime-time news anchor in the country. I mean, no one could’ve seen that coming—least of all me. But that’s exactly what happened over these past couple of months: I fell in love.

That’d be complicated enough, I suppose, but Xander? Well, he fell in love with me too, and while it’s caused some major upset in the dynamics around here, I have to believe that a love this real can only lead to somewhere amazing.

This thing between us started out as a job, a friend helping out a friend. But after playing the role of Xander’s boyfriend, I find myself wanting the job full-time, because neither of us are playing anymore.

Headlines is the final book of the Prime Time Series and should only be read after book one, Inside Affair, and book two, Breaking News.

New Release – ADORING KEATON By Siobhan Davis

🔥NEW Release🔥
A friends-to-lovers new adult MM romance from USA Today bestseller Siobhan Davis. Stand-alone with HEA and no cliffhanger. 
Keaton

 

Moving to California was supposed to be my fresh start. A clean slate. An opportunity to drop the façade, escape the lies, find a focus, and just be myself.

But I should have realized it wouldn’t be easy, especially when my last name is Kennedy.

I’m not ready to be a gay icon or some celebrity role model. I still haven’t admitted the truth to my family or the girl I professed to love, so there’s no way I want the public to know I’m into dudes.

Falling for my hot, straight, football-player roomie wasn’t part of the game plan.

Neither was backing myself into a corner because I trusted the wrong guy.

Now everything is on the line, and it’s time to stop pretending.

 

Austen

From the time I was a little kid, all I wanted is to play football in college and play in the NFL. As wide receiver for the Golden Bears, I am on track to achieve my goals, but it comes at a heavy price.

Denying who I am—for the sake of my career—goes against everything I believe. 

I should never have listened to my high school coach, because all the lies are suffocating me.

Until Keaton Kennedy enters my life, turning it upside down.

Now, there is even more reason to tell the truth, because I’m falling for the famous one and I want the entire world to know.

Review – Adoring Keaton by Siobhan Davis

Adoring Keaton; The Kennedy Boys #9 
(A standalone within a series)

by: Siobhan Davis

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

I don’t know how she does it, but each book Siobhan Davis writes becomes my new favorite. Keaton, sweet Keaton has been dear to my heart since the beginning of this series and I knew his book would be special. Siobhan did not disappoint.

Keaton is not only the sweetest and most thoughtful Kennedy brother, but you got a sense through each previous book that something was troubling him, there was something going on inside his head that he wasn’t telling his family. We finally have his story and find that he has been struggling with his sense of self, not only in what he wants to do with his life after college, which is normal for a lot of college students, but more at the root of his struggle is his sexuality.

For years Keaton has dated the same girl. He dreamed of marriage, kids, a family. The whole package, but that package just didn’t feel right when he kept forcing the picture of the girl beside him into it. Not only was he confused about the feelings flowing through him, but he didn’t know how to really be himself. He didn’t know how to be the true Keaton he felt deep inside. He feared facing media backlash, given who his family was. He feared his family no longer loving him. He feared not living his dream. So living in silence was better, or so he thought.

When Keaton meets Austen Hayes at school things finally begin to click. Not only is Austen gay, but he’s confident and basically everything that Keaton wants to be. Their love affair is fast and furious, the very thing Keaton always dreamed when he imagined a partner by his side, the only thing it isn’t is out in the open. They hide what they feel for one another in secret. The downside of secrets is they have a way of festering and leaking out no matter their good intentions at the time.

Adoring Keaton is so much more than just a romance story. It’s a story about finding yourself, stumbling, making mistakes, and really discovering who you are at a time when you have so many questions about your life and what direction you want to take it.  Living with guilt and shame, living a lie for so long has an effect on who you are and seeps into so many parts of your life, Keaton showcases the damage that not living your truth can cause on top of this already tumultuous time.

The topic of sexualtiy and why the media, professions, people, etc…are so fascinated with this topic has always been a point of contention with me. I love that Siobhan delves into this very subject and I applaud her for writing the book that Keaton needed. I truly believe that who you sleep with, what you do behind closed doors, and who you do it with shouldn’t matter to anyone else. End of discussion. At the end of the day it doesn’t matter how you perform your job, how you drive, where you shop, so on and so forth in correlation to what you or who you do in the bedroom.

Siobhan wrote a truly beautiful, and steamy, story about two men finding love and growing up gay in today’s world and did their story justice. I loved every word.

This heartwarming, emotional romance has a dash of angst and drama, a sprinkling of humor, and cameos from some of your favorite characters from the series. It is a 100k-word full-length novel, and the second to last book in the Kennedy Boys series. This can be read as a stand-alone novel as it focuses on a new couple; however, it is recommended you start at the beginning of the series for maximum reading enjoyment.

Standalone M/M Romance.

A fiery, passionate MM romance novel from #1 New York Times Bestselling author Lauren Blakely…

Ever hear the story about the bodyguard who falls for the rock star?
Yeah, it never ends well.
Each day I remind myself that it’s my job to protect Stone. And nowhere in the job description does it say I should lust after the charismatic, charming rock star.
But every night I spend with him the attraction grows more intense, electric, undeniable.
Until one night in a limo when we combust.
One time only will have to be enough.
Because the mistakes from the past are chasing me.
And If I give in again, I might lose everything.
Good thing I’m strong, determined, and dedicated to resisting him.
But after a close call at his concert, all bets are off.
And in his hotel room, we strike a brand new deal.
One that can’t end well for me, but I do it anyway. Because sometimes you grab hold of the desire. And other times, the desire takes hold of you.

Review – Classified by Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank

Classified; The Elite #3 
(#3 within a series)

by: Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Classified is the conclusion to the high flying MM Elite series. A perfect ending to an intense trilogy.

Panther and Solo have shown tremendous growth throughout their time together and were able to keep their intense relationship blazing hot, but once their training ends what will happen to them? While neither of them want to really discuss their future, they also know their time is running short and the possibility of being deployed to opposite ends of the world is very real.

Panther is ready to stop hiding and brings his relationship with Solo forward. Ready to risk it all he makes a statement by letting everyone know that Solo is his and for the first time in a long time he feels happy. Sharing simple things like dates and spending all of his free time with the man he’s falling fast for.

Solo may still be cocky, but being with Panther has smoothed his edges out. For the first time ever he’s looking towards a future and he doesn’t want to face it alone. He actually likes having a partner in the air and on the ground and the thought of losing Panther actually scares him.

With the two of them hiding from the future it leaves them in a cloud of doubt and easy for vultures to step in and stir that doubt up. Will their connection be enough to survive?

I love where these two men have come from and what their relationship has grown into. Their vulnerability is endearing, the passion is hot and they complete each other so well. The Elite series is an excellent read overall!

Synopsis:

Classified is the final book of the Elite Series and should only be read after book one, Danger Zone, and book two, Need for Speed.

They train to serve their country.
They strive to be the best.
But only a select few can be…
The Elite

New Release – INSIDE AFFAIR from Ella Frank

Inside Affair, the first in an all-new contemporary MM series from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank is available now!

Prime1 AMAZON

Xander

If I had to describe Sean Bailey, it would be: a surly, temperamental pain in my ass. Never in that equation would I ever include the word boyfriend—and not just because he’s straight.

The older brother of my life-long best friend, Sean is a detective for the Chicago PD, and is also known as Detective “Dick” for being…well, a surly, temperamental pain in everyone’s ass. He also happens to be the best they have, which is why I find myself on his doorstep the night my life is threatened by an anonymous stalker.

I only wanted the name of a bodyguard; I didn’t expect for Sean to volunteer for the job. Now, not only do I have a bodyguard, I also have a fake boyfriend.

Sean

It must be so hard to be Alexander Thorne, the number one prime-time news anchor in the country, with millions of dollars and a car that costs more than my house. I mean, I’m allowed to give him a hard time about it, but when some creep decides to cross the line and go after him, they’re gonna have to answer to me.

Going undercover has never been an issue in the past, so I don’t see why there’d be a problem now. Xander and I have known each other for years, so this should be a breeze. Except suddenly my stomach’s flipping when he looks my way, and my body comes alive whenever he brushes by me. I know I’m good at my job and playing a character and all, but this is getting out of hand.

I can’t be sure that either of us are playing anymore.

Review – Inside Affair by Ella Frank

Inside Affair; Prime Time #1 
(#1 in a series)

by: Ella Frank

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

Breaking News!! Ella Frank has done it again! Inside Affair is a page turning read with the perfect amount of chemistry, angst, suspense, and snark.

I love the snarky humor that Ella injects into her characters and Inside Affair has the perfect amount that balances out the angsty emotions between Sean and Xander. This is not a typical story between two men; Sean and Xander have known each other most of their lives and while Xander is an out gay man, Sean is straight. Neither have ever had any feelings towards the other or really given the other much thought, so the chemistry that bubbles up between the both of them is something new and foreign and completely organic. Their attraction, which they both ignore and try to fight, grows between them as Sean works on catching Xander’s stalker.

Xander is a news anchor with a stalker who has taken things to a dangerous level. He now needs a bodyguard, which isn’t something he is looking forward to so he asks his lifelong friend for help, and Sean Bailey is the answer. Since they actually want to catch the stalker the plan is for Sean to pose as his fake boyfriend, not something Sean hasn’t done before in his undercover work as a detective, but Xander isn’t sure the feelings that begin to arise are necessarily fake and he isn’t sure how to handle that.

This is the first book in the Prime Time series that does end on a cliffhanger. Sean and Xander’s story will pick up in book two and I’m really excited to see where their relationship goes.

Synopsis:

Hood River Hoodlums, Book 1
by K Webster
Publication Date: April 30, 2020
Genres: MM High School Bully Romance

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

Hood River was supposed to be the change I needed.
A fresh start.
An escape from my painful past.
Better in every way.

I’m a popular guy. Approachable. I make friends easily.
Cool car. Nice clothes. Good attitude.
Everything will be fine.

School is school.
I’ll keep my head down until graduation and try not to stick out.
College will be here before I know it.

Yet my first day proves to be anything but easy.
The Hood River Hoodlums—our school’s most notorious group of bad boys—have put a target on my back.
Their leader, Roan, hates me.
He calls me Rat.
To him and his friends, I’m a loser who doesn’t belong at their school.

I could pretend I don’t care about their hate.
If only Roan wasn’t so hot.
He’s mean, cruel, and sexy as hell.
My nemesis is impossible to ignore…and a secret part of me doesn’t want to.

Here I thought being gay was the worst of my problems.
Turns out, being gay and crushing on your enemy takes the cake.

This is a full-length high school enemies-to-lovers and new adult romance with high angst, suspense, and gutting emotion. It’s book one in the Hood River Hoodlum series that will have interlinking storylines. Hood River Rat can be read as a standalone and starts off a four-book planned series that gives each Hoodlum a book. This is the only MM story. The others are MF.

New Release – Beguiling Benjamin by Robin Covington

_BB - RB banner.jpg

One cruise.
Two guys.
Seven nights.
Zero strings.
…what could possibly go wrong?

Beguiling Benjamin, a brand new steamy, standalone MM romance in the Gone Wild series by USA Today bestselling author Robin Covington, is out now!

Beguiling Benjamin_wlogo.jpeg

All work and no play has made me a very dull and very horny boy. But now that I’ve secured my coveted tenure professorship in mathematics, I can concentrate on 1) getting a life; and 2) getting off. Not necessarily in that order.

A vacation with my best friends is the perfect way to kick off my new life. And the fact that our relaxing week on the beach is mistakenly booked as a raucous singles cruise seems like the perfect answer to problem number two.

Propositioning the assistant football coach from my university (and the number one player on my spankbank fantasy team) on the ship’s deck after three too many rum punches seems like a good idea at the time. One hotter-than-hell kiss and blow-my-mind orgasm later and the deal for a week-long fling is done and it is definitely the best idea I’ve ever had.

One cruise. Two guys. Seven nights. Zero strings. It sounds like the perfect equation to me… what could possibly go wrong?

Review – Need For Speed by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

50392429. sy475

Need For Speed; The Elite #2 
(#2 in a series)

by: Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

Review Rating:

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

The high octane series continues with this steamy story between Solo and Panther. Ella and Brooke left us with a huge cliffhanger in Danger Zone and we finally find out how Panther fared when he ejected from his fighter jet. This continuation hits on a more emotional level, while still keeping the chemistry brewing between the two men. It still ends on a cliffhanger as this is just the middle portion of their story, but their ending is in sight.

Everyone has a moment in their life when they come to a fork in the road of a major life decision. Do you stay with the job you are currently working at or pursue a new one? Do you buy a new car or keep driving your current one? Is it time to move into a larger home or just make updates to where I’m living?

Even though every fighter jet pilot practices and prepares for the worst case scenario, you don’t actually think it will happen to you. When Panther has to make the split second decision to eject from his jet as he watches his jet crash into the ocean, that life or death decision changes his outlook on what is important in his own life.

Throwing the ever infalible Solo off his game when Panther begins showing him affection, Solo finds himself in new territory. What started as a way to blow off steam during this assignment is turning into more. He helps Panther heal mentally and physically and this only brings them closer, something neither one of them argue about.

Both Panther and Solo are heading into new waters and navigating what they’ve never allowed themselves to feel before it certainly can’t be any scarier than almost dying or watching someone almost die so perhaps they should go all in? With these two you know they don’t hold back much, so once they do decide it will be at full speed.

Synopsis:

Need for Speed is the continuation of Solo and Panther’s story and should only be read after book one, Danger Zone.

They train to serve their country.
They strive to be the best.
But only a select few can be…
The Elite

* * *

MATEO MORGAN
CALL SIGN: SOLO

Reckless, arrogant, and bold, Solo is as known in the U.S. Navy for his bad-boy reputation as he is for his skills as a fighter pilot. It’s a surprise to his peers, then, when he’s chosen to train and compete at the most prestigious naval aviation academy in the world.

MISSION RULES:
1. Kick everyone’s ass.
2. Do whatever it takes to win.
3. Do your best to distract the competition.
4. Especially when that competition is a gorgeous blue-eyed perfectionist who makes your blood run hot.

* * *

GRANT HUGHES
CALL SIGN: PANTHER

Disciplined, smart, and confident, Panther can’t afford not to play by the rules. As the son of a top Navy commander, all eyes are on him, and being anything less than number one is unacceptable.

MISSION RULES:
1. Keep it safe in the air.
2. Prove you’re more than Commander Hughes’s son.
3. No distractions. Stay focused.
4. Don’t fall for your competition—especially not the rebellious heartbreaker with lips made for sinning.

In the heat of the hot California sun, tempers flare and desires ignite as Solo and Panther try to resist their attraction while fighting to be number one.
With passion this intense, the question remains:
Who’s gonna come out on top?

Danger Zone - Teaser 3 AN.jpg

Excerpt:

1.

Grant Hughes

IT WAS ONE of those hot summer nights, the ones best spent lying on the beach, a cold beer in hand, staring up at the jets flying overhead, the roar of their engines shaking the sky. That was where I should’ve been. It was the smart decision, the obvious choice between being responsible and where I was headed now.

Fuck it. The next ten weeks would have me on my best behavior, and if I needed a night off to get through it, then I’d take it.

A bead of sweat trailed down my neck from beneath the suffocating heat of my helmet as I waited for the traffic light to change. The last of the sun was setting behind me, leaving the sky overhead a bruise of purples and blues, and as the light flipped to green, I gunned the engine and took off toward the dark.

Minutes later, I smoothly guided my Ducati 848 into the parking lot of the unnamed bar—God, that was sketchy as hell—and then cut the engine. There was no hesitation as I climbed off the back of my bike, removed my helmet, and clipped it to the back of the seat. Then I shrugged out of my leather jacket, feeling relief as a gust of warm wind cooled my bare skin and the sweat on my brow. As the music playing inside filtered out through the front door opening and closing, a low purr of anticipation filled my gut. It’d been too long, and I was starving.

As I walked inside, my eyes adjusted to the dimly lit room. It looked like any bar you’d find anywhere in the U.S.: cracked vinyl booths along the perimeter, an old jukebox near the fully stocked bar with TVs playing a whole lot of no one’s watching. For a Sunday, it wasn’t too packed, but that didn’t much matter considering I was here for a sure thing. Another quick sweep of the room told me he hadn’t arrived yet, so I made my way to the bar, conscious of the gazes my way, sizing me up.

“I’ll have a Heineken,” I told the bartender, resting my elbow on the bar top and dropping my jacket onto the counter. Sitting down would invite visitors, and my night was set.

When the bartender popped the top and pushed the bottle my way, I took a long swig of the ice-cold beer and glanced up at the one television not playing a sports channel. The local news was on, running a feature on the air show from the weekend, and as I watched the planes showing off maneuvers, I felt a pair of eyes watching me.

I glanced at the clock behind the bar, choosing to ignore whoever it was making my skin heat, and silently cursed out my now late date. The last thing I needed was to be standing here solo, looking like I wanted someone to approach. That wasn’t me; I wasn’t the kind to troll a bar looking for a good time. I was more into having a plan and executing it. No surprises that way. No way for things to blow up in my face.

Keeping that thought in mind, I continued to pay extra-close attention to the F/A-18 Hornet aircraft executing barrel rolls across the television screen. I thought I was doing a pretty good job of giving off a don’t come near me vibe, but a few minutes later someone stepped up alongside me, invading my personal space in a way that indicated he wasn’t merely interested in the empty seat beside me.

Dammit, this was the last thing I needed.

“Hey there, this seat taken?”

The cocksure tone of the man who’d just delivered that very unoriginal line told me he wasn’t worried in the least that I’d turn him down. In fact, before I said anything, I could feel the guy sliding into the seat beside me, his body heat warming the bare skin of my arm.

I ground my back molars together and slowly turned in the direction of my new companion, and as I prepared to give my “thanks, but no thanks” speech, my words got caught somewhere in the back of my throat.

Situated as we were, I found myself looking down into a pair of eyes the color of smooth, expensive whiskey, lined with lashes so thick it looked as though he had taken a kohl liner to them. His hair was buzzcut short and brown, his skin bronzed like some kind of sun god, and when I continued to stand there like some kind of statue, a brilliant white smile crept across a pouty set of lips.

Hell, this guy was one of the most beautiful men I’d ever seen in my life—the problem was, he knew it.

“I’m gonna take that as a no.” Those stunning eyes boldly swept over my body, from my black t-shirt to my jeans, and when they finally landed back on my face, he winked. “Lucky me.”

Arrogant, bold, and cocky. The guy staring back at me was everything I steered clear of when it came to a quick hookup. I needed reliable, trustworthy, and discreet.

Looking away, I took another sip of my beer. “Sit wherever you like.”

“Ahh. I see.”

When he didn’t add anything to that, I took the bait. “See what?”

Out of the corner of my eye, that cocky half-smile still on his face, the guy shrugged. “Two theories. You’re either into playing hard to get, or…”

Though every instinct told me not to engage, I looked his way. When his eyes locked on mine, I realized my mistake. “Or?”

“Or you’re the aggressor.”

“The what?”

“The guy who goes after what he wants, not the one being pursued.”

I snorted and went back to pretending to watch the news, but then the guy leaned in, invading my space once again.

“So? Which is it?”

“Maybe it’s neither.”

“Or maybe you’re lying.” He dropped his voice down low. “Want me to go back to the end of the bar?”

I couldn’t help the chuckle that left my throat, because as unwanted as the attention was, you almost had to give it up for the guy’s persistence. If I wasn’t waiting for someone, I may have even found him charming.

“Another,” I said to the bartender, holding up my empty bottle. Then I glanced over my shoulder, looking once again for the familiar man I was here for, but when he still hadn’t arrived, I turned my body so I casually faced the man practically begging for my attention.

This time, I let my gaze roam over him, taking in the tight fit of his dark jeans and the way the olive-green t-shirt he wore was practically a second skin over his muscled build. He was devastating in that heartbreaker-but-you’ll-love-every-second-of-it way, and damn if my cock didn’t take notice.

“Oh please, feel free. Should I stand up?” He went to stand, but I shot my hand out, pushing against his chest so he stayed right where he was. His body beneath my fingertips was nothing but hard muscle, and I licked my lips before I could stop myself. Fuck, he was tempting.

When the bartender pushed another beer my way, I jerked my hand back and reached for the bottle.

“You don’t say much, do you?”

“Not here to talk.”

“No?” He got to his feet this time, kicking the stool away. “I can get on board with that.”

I sighed, half annoyed and half turned on. I knew which side would win in the end. “Look, I appreciate the attention, but I’ve got plans and they’re not with you.”

The guy grabbed his chest like he’d been shot. “Ouch. Brutal.”

“Better not to waste your time.”

“Ah-huh. So where’s your date?”

My jaw twitched. “Late.”

“Sounds like that’s more of a waste of time to me. I’d never make you wait.” He leaned in, his words practically a whisper. “I’d come every time you told me to.”

Review/Synopsis:

Review:

It has been awhile since I’ve read a MM romance and this was the perfect book to jump back into the waters with. OMG!! The adrenaline, the smexy, hot chemistry, the sassy, no-filter mouth of Solo, and the pent-up ready to blow passion of Panther. Everything was delicious!

Danger Zone is high energy, extreme, page turning action.  Filled with the best-of-the-best cocky navy pilots, the men and women who are a part of this story are all amazing, but Solo and Panther really jump off the pages. From the very beginning their energy sizzles and you know once they finally give in to what is between them it is going to be an inferno of passion.

Solo is known for being cocky and a bit reckless, but also one of the best pilots. He finds Panther irresistible and wants him like he hasn’t wanted anyone in a long time and he isn’t known for losing. Loosening up the tightly controlled pilot becomes an obsession, one that he dreams of winning.

Panther always plays by the rules which makes Solo a huge risk both in and out of the bedroom. He will admit that he’s an excellent pilot, but reckless which gets him in trouble and should scream “stay away”, but staying away from him becomes harder as the days pass.

Danger Zone does end on a cliffhanger and WHOA, it is a whopper…so if you are someone who likes to wait and read books back to back, just know that you might want to wait, but luckily you won’t have to wait for long. Need for Speed will be out next month.

Synopsis:

They train to serve their country.
They strive to be the best.
But only a select few can be …
The Elite

* * *

MATTEO MORGAN
CALL SIGN: SOLO

Reckless, arrogant, and bold, Solo is as known in the U.S. Navy for his bad-boy reputation as he is for his skills as a fighter pilot. It’s a surprise to his peers, then, when he’s chosen to train and compete at the most prestigious naval aviation academy in the world.

MISSION RULES:
1. Kick everyone’s ass.
2. Do whatever it takes to win.
3. Do your best to distract the competition.
4. Especially when that competition is a gorgeous blue-eyed perfectionist who makes your blood run hot.

* * *

GRANT HUGHES
CALL SIGN: PANTHER

Disciplined, smart, and confident, Panther can’t afford not to play by the rules. As the son of a top Navy commander, all eyes are on him, and being anything less than number one is unacceptable.

MISSION RULES:
1. Keep it safe in the air.
2. Prove you’re more than Commander Hughes’s son.
3. No distractions. Stay focused.
4. Don’t fall for your competition—especially not the rebellious heartbreaker with lips made for sinning.

In the heat of the hot California sun, tempers flare and desires ignite as Solo and Panther try to resist their attraction while fighting to be number one.
With passion this intense, the question remains:
Who’s gonna come out on top?

BLURB

Benny DeMarco is the nicest guy you’ll ever meet. He works hard, takes care of his little sister, and pays the bills. Childhood bullies and an abusive stepfather invade his dreams, and at times he wishes life would grant him a do-over. Would he like a boyfriend? You bet. But Benny knows love isn’t for him. He’s been looked over, looked through, and looked past all his life. Even worse, the one guy he’s been in love with for almost two years is the biggest flirt who will sleep with anyone. Anyone except Benny.

Gino Acosta smiles to keep from crying. Everyone he meets tells him he’s beautiful and sexy, but Gino knows the truth. His outside may be perfect, but inside he feels dirty and unworthy. Bounced around as a child, he yearns for someone to love and a family to call his own. He hops from man to man, desperate to belong, believing the lies he’s told, but all he finds is a body for an hour or two. Things would be so different if only he knew—the man he’s searching for is waiting for him, right under his nose.

Benny starts dating the “perfect guy”and it’s okay if there’s no spark—that’ll happen eventually. Won’t it? Gino’s fast-paced modeling career has taken off, but once again, he’s trading his body for a dream. When Gino’s world explodes, Benny must fight for what and who he really wants. Gino must learn to trust what people tell him—that he’s got so much more to offer than a pretty face and a moment of pleasure.

If all your life you believe you’re nothing, how do you move past heartbreak and hardship to reach for everything?

AUTHOR BIO

I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, my characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love.

I live in New York City with my husband and two children and hopefully soon a cat of my own. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there is bound to be a few bumps along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.

New Release – Deviate by Mia Monroe

RELEASE BLITZ
Title: Deviate
Series: Love in the City #1
Author: Mia Monroe
Genre: Contemporary MM Romance
Release Date: July 15, 2019

BLURB

Falling for him was not part of the plan.

It was the perfect plan. I would marry one of my closest friends and reap the financial rewards. He needed a savior right when I showed up on my white horse. We’d been friends for years, so now we’d be glorified roommates. No one had to know two straight guys decided to tie the knot. We agreed nothing would change. We’d just go on with our normal lives.

That was the plan until I started to notice more about him than just his laid back vibe. I started to look forward to coming home. I lived to talk books, art, and love. Suddenly, we were both feeling things that didn’t make any sense. We didn’t date men. We had to make a decision – act on the attraction or try to pretend it wasn’t there.

One thing about perfect plans – sometimes you have to deviate.

EXCERPT 

As I hand him my wine glass, our hands brush together causing both of us to pause. My eyes shift to his, and my brow furrows as the strangest thought settles over me.
“Something wrong?” Quinn asks.
I blink rapidly, taking a moment to ground myself.
“Jason? You okay?”
“Yes.” I clear my throat. “I’m fine.”
“You looked like you were gonna be sick.”
I swallow hard. “Um, no it passed. Maybe too much wine. I’m good.”
Quinn smiles. “Okay. Want some water?”
“I can get it.”
I stumble to the fridge, reaching in for a bottle of water, but still reeling from the urge I had to fight back. I wanted to kiss him. Or him to kiss me. I wanted my male friend to fucking kiss me. Again. Work has been keeping me so busy, it’s been easy to avoid the feelings, but they’re back. When he touches my shoulder, I jump back, startled.
Quinn raises his hand. “Sorry, man. You sure you’re okay? You’re acting really strange.”
I couldn’t tell him. No way. That would be an invitation. Or admitting something I’m not sure I want to admit.
“I think I’ll sit down for a minute.”
“Good idea. I’ll finish up in here.”
In the living room, I sink into the couch, rubbing my forehead. My mind shifts back to the night we kissed and Quinn said it was no big deal. But it was. Because I liked it. A few minutes ago, I was tempted to do it again. What is it about the guy that makes me feel such strange things? And what would he do if I actually kissed him?
When he appears again, my breath catches, but I hope he didn’t notice. He sits on the edge of the coffee table directly in front of me and puts his hands on both my knees.
“Are you sure you don’t need to see a doctor?” he asks. “You’re still really pale.”
“I’m Irish. I’m always pale.”
Quinn smiles, softly shaking his head. “Your sense of humor is intact at least.” He studies my eyes. “You’re sure you’re okay?”
Could I tell him? “I, um, just have a lot on my mind.”
“Okay. Let’s talk. That’s why I’m here. Do you need advice? I don’t know much about your world, but maybe I can help.”
“It’s nothing.”
“Is it your business?”
“No.”
“Personal then. Something between you and me? Something you want to tell me?”
“Quinn…”
He nods, still holding my gaze. “It is me. Did I do something wrong?”
“No.” I shake my head. “Not at all.”
He stands and as he does my eyes follow him, taking in his masculine body. He moves beside me. “Tell me what’s going on, Jason. I can take it.”
“Um, well, maybe it’s just the wine, but um…” I can’t tell him.
Quinn moves to his knees on the floor in front of me so I’m forced to look at him again. “What?”
I don’t say a word. Instead, I just lean in and press my lips on his then sit back abruptly.
A slow smile spreads on Quinn’s lips. “You wanted to kiss me?”
“I guess I did.”
“That’s okay.”
We sit silently for a moment until Quinn slides his hand up my neck, settling it just under my hair. He pulls me to him and kisses me again, softly, letting his lips linger on mine. Then he releases me.
“That was nice,” he whispers. “Did you think so?”
I nod. “Yeah, Quinn. It was nice, but—”
“Shh. No buts. We don’t need to break it down right now.”
My brow furrows. “Are you sure?”
“I am sure. It’s just something we both wanted to do, and that’s cool.” He grins. “We are married after all.”
I laugh softly. “We’re not that kind of married.”
He shrugs. “Maybe we are.” He takes my hand in his. “Or maybe we will be one day. I think we just…” He tilts his head, fixing those amazing eyes on me. “Just let it happen.”
“It?”
“Whatever it is. I’m down with that. Are you?”

BLURB

As a child, I trusted no one.
Then I found my best friends.
They gave me a family and saved me from a life of abuse that still has me messed up.

Then one of those best friends captured my heart.
Lincoln, tough yet tender, a walking contradiction.
He loves me too—flaws and all.
He’s the most patient man on the earth and understands my PTSD.

What he doesn’t understand is why our being intimate makes me feel “dirty”.
He’s not one of the men who abused me and he’d never hurt me. I know this. I believe it.
Still, the “dirty” creeps in even though I know what we do together is anything but.

He’s here now and he’s going to stay.
It’s time for me to talk to someone professionally.
I need to shed my unhealthy past in order to have a healthy future with the man I love.
If I don’t, I just might lose the best thing that’s ever happened to me—and there’s not enough therapy in the world to get me through that.

EXCERPT 

Unedited Refrain Excerpt
©2019 Anne Mercier

Social acceptance, ‘being liked,’
has so much power because it holds the feelings of loneliness at bay.
~Rollo May

ETHAN
I MET LINCOLN RAMIREZ on the playground at recess. We were eight. He was bigger than everyone else back then. He still is today—much bigger.
Watching him in the ring as he fights his opponent, I’m both terrified and turned on.
Linc’s back muscles ripple with each movement. Punch, jab, kick. Jesus, he’s beautiful. Every movement fluid, every connection to his opponent jarring. He fucks like that too. And that is what has me aroused, half-hard at a fight where my boyfriend is beating the hell out of his opponent. It’s impossible for the bloodshed to deter my cock from getting harder when Linc’s grunts of exertion remind me of when we’re in bed.
“Damn, that had to hurt,” Kennedy shouts beside me.
Sometimes, but in the best ways.
“His fists are bigger than my head!” Lucy exaggerates.
You should see his dick. I smirk at the thought.
“He’s kicking that fucker’s ass!” Jesse shouts, then lets out a cheer.
Fucking… ass… yes, please.
I wince when Linc gets a leg to the midsection. He doesn’t even flinch. He grabs the guy’s ankle and twists. His opponent falls to the floor, his expression one of agony.
Xander yells. “That kick would’ve had me puking up my guts.”
“All of us,” I reply.
“No lie. Just look at him. He’s a fucking beast!”
I look at Xander and think, “You have no idea.” But I say nothing. My gaze immediately goes back to the fighters in the ring. Just in time, too. Linc’s got the guy in some kind of submission hold, still with the ankle.
“Fucking hell,” I murmur.
“He’s gonna tap out!” Ben shouts. “He’s gonna tap!”
“Linc won’t like it,” Jesse replies. “He likes to knock the fuckers out.”
“It’s a win,” Kennedy replies. “He’ll take it.”
I nod. “He’ll take it, but he won’t call it a win.”
Just as Jesse predicted, the fucker taps out.
They announce Linc as the winner, he twirls once, arms outstretched, but when he stops, his eyes land on me and never move. Not while he’s being interviewed. Not while the cameras are going off. Not while they put his robe back over his shoulders.
Those eyes are going to be on me all night.
I shiver thinking of all the ways he’ll take me, and I’ll take him.
It’s going to be a long night.
I can’t wait.
