ebook | audio | paperback

I’ve never been romantic. Just ask my ex-wife.

Since she broke up with me, I get my needs met any time I want, without putting my heart on the line. Exactly how I like it.

But when she is called overseas and leaves me with our child, my bachelor lifestyle ends faster than you can say, “Daddy, I want a pony.”

I need help.

Problem is, help’s come in the form of an incredibly hot nanny.

My employee.

Who is much younger than me.

And also … a guy.

I watch Scott care for my kid and can’t help feeling like he clicks into place in her life.

When he looks at me, though … I get an entirely different feeling. One that makes me long for things I can’t have.

Like him.

Review – Unmanageable by Leslie McAdam

Unmanageable; In Vino Veritas #3
(#3 within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: September 13, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Contemporary/Single Dad/Age Gap/MM Romance

Author: Leslie McAdam

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I love a well written story where two opposites attract. Unmanageable is the perfect grumpy/sunshine book to bring a smile to your face.

Scott and Luke are polar opposites, but match very well together. Luke is all work and no fun and Scott is all romantic ideas with his head in the sky. Together they balance each other out and offer one another the realism of fun that the other needs, without burning out in either category. They needed one another in more ways than one and it was beautiful to read how they opened each other up.

Luke was so stuck in his grouchy work-filled ways that he forgot to have a life, or that he really had a family. He was missing out on his adorable daughter and that she was growing up during the sweetest time in her young precious life.

Scott on the other hand was so far up in the clouds that he didn’t want to pay his bills or worry about a real job that his life was about to crash in on him. He was about to be evicted from his apartment and didn’t know how to begin paying his bills so he just avoided them all together….Oh, Scott.

Everyone needs that balance in their life. Everyone needs that person to pull them in from self destruction and everyone needs THEIR person. I loved how they still organically fell for each other, even with their close circumstances. Unmanageable was light hearted and full of steam, but also sweet with moments that involved their dates and especially when Scott was playing with Luke’s daughter.

Preorder Blast – Vile Boys by AJ Merlin

Release Date: September 14

Winter Grove University is the dream school for anyone who wants to get somewhere in life, no matter if you’re an alpha, beta, or even an omega.

It’s almost impossible to get in. So when I beat the odds, I know it’ll be life changing.

I just don’t expect death on campus during orientation, or a warning to stay in my lane if I want to get through the next four years successfully.

Not that I’m worried, or anything.

That is, until the three most influential boys of Winter Grove decide to dedicate the semester to making my life a living hell for reasons that probably aren’t my fault.

Foster, Dorian, and August know how to hold a grudge. And they’re not willing to let me forget any slight I may have committed against them. Now, with three boys making my life hell and bodies piling up around campus, I have to wonder if maybe I should stop worrying about my grades and instead focus on the two alphas and a beta who can’t seem to leave me alone or the killer who might be closer than we thought.

Vile Boys is the first book in the Knot Their Toy duet and includes omegaverse, M/M, poly, and bullying.

Follow his father’s orders and leave Luca to the wolves, or defy the boss and get back what he lost.

Review – Sinful Mafia Prince by Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

Sinful Mafia Prince; The Malvagio Duet #2
(#2 within a duet)

Publication Date: August 29, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Duet/New Adult/Dark/Mafia/Suspense/MM Romance

Author: Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Picking right up after Luca was nabbed and stuffed into a trunk…Dom is left reeling with how to feel, what to do, and who to go after?

Feelings change and grow in this second part of the duet. The scary mafia heir is…well, he’s still scary, but with Luca he is a different man. Let’s face it when you find YOUR person, those traits that might scare off someone else don’t really work on the person you are meant to be with.

Luca doesn’t shy away from Dom’s scary side, he pushes back and it’s those traits that Dom admires in him. In Dom’s world someone soft and a pushover wouldn’t survive and the fact that Luca is none of those things makes him the perfect partner, if only his world would accept a man by his side.

While these two grow and change it’s also heartbreaking while they discuss the real world issue of machismo. It’s a true and sad fact that bigotry is a very real and alive fact, especially in cultures such as theirs. I loved that Ella and Brooke didn’t shy away from this discussion, but also talked about it in a delicate manner.

This duet is fast paced, suspenseful, beautiful with the intense relationship, and also the location in this second book – chef’s kiss ladies, I loved it , loved it, loved it!!

Synopsis:
“They took something that belonged to me—
and nothing will stop me from getting him back.”

The Fiores have made their move.
In a last-ditch effort to save their crumbling empire, they’ve managed to take back their heir, landing a blow to the Rossettis—in particular, Dom.

But failure is not an option for Dom, and soon he finds himself at a crossroads:

The question is, will Luca choose to trust Dom to keep him safe even after all he’s put him through, or will he put his future in the hands of his long-lost family instead?

As the war between enemies reaches its breaking point, both Dom and Luca face the most difficult decision of their lives.

Do they fight for their families or do they fight for each other?

About Stalked But Not Afraid

Roman

He’s an influencer—whatever that means. He’s also stunningly beautiful with a feisty attitude I can’t deny intrigues me.

But more importantly, he’s in trouble.

I’m not like my brother. Except for being a cop, I don’t strive to save the entire world.

However, I find myself compelled to save him.

If he’ll calm down and just let me.

Brooks

He’s everything I despise. He’s a cop. An arrogant tough-guy type who thinks he knows everything.

He drives me insane and won’t take the hint that I don’t want or need his help.

I’m not weak, and I’m not as defenseless as I once was either.

And still, I can’t seem to fully push him away.

Because maybe this time—just this once—I want to be saved.

Stalked But Not Afraid; Spark of Hope #2
(Standalone within a series)

Publication Date: August 2, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Opposites Attract/MM/Trauma Romance

Author: Nicole Dykes

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Super steamy hot times mixed with a powerful message…Nicole Dykes has enraptured me once again!!

In today’s world where corruption turns up at every corner and it seems like you can’t trust anyone anymore…well…then you read a book like Stalked But Not Afraid and it brings back some of the light into your world that maybe not all hope is lost. That’s what reading does, essentially, it brightens your day, allows escape, and gives that spark of…I’m not alone in the world because there is someone else in the world reading these same words and perhaps they are feeling just like me. Let me open that light just a bit for you…

Roman is a cop and while the world has been topsy turvy lately on the realm of officers, Roman became a cop, not to save the world, but perhaps to save a few families like his own. His brother and him were abused and his mother was eventually killed by his father and growing up the way he did is the reason why Roman wants to help. While Roman can appear gruff to outsiders, he’s really a giant teddy bear of a man. What he represents to his friends, to his family, and eventually to Brooks is incredible strength and a deep passion for caring about those he loves. As Roman opens up throughout the story my heart burst for him. It made me wish the world was full of more people like him.

Brooks, oh where to start on this fiery, took me by surprise influencer. I adored him and how he took back control of his life. While he’s being stalked by a horrific person and degrading Brooks to where he doesn’t feel safe anywhere he goes, he’s left living in the apartment above Ben’s gym – the same apartment Colby lived in in the last book. It’s tiny and doesn’t offer much, but it’s safe and at least gives Roman time to investigate. I basically have no words for how he is with Roman without giving away all the really juicy bits and they are spicy hot, but Brooks is a snack and a half. Getting him back to his former self takes spending time with Roman who actually plays a big part in that, but it takes a hot minute to get there since Brooks and Roman are like oil and water when they first meet.

I am becoming a huge fan of Nicole’s books, not only for her phenomenal writing, but for the powerful messages she wraps up in them. This book was filled with positive messages that wound around my heart and filled my soul with joy. Stalked but Not Afraid was a book filled with tons of small moments that had a big effect.

Synopsis:
Roman
He’s an influencer—whatever that means. He’s also stunningly beautiful with a feisty attitude I can’t deny intrigues me.
But more importantly, he’s in trouble.
I’m not like my brother. Except for being a cop, I don’t strive to save the entire world.
However, I find myself compelled to save him.
If he’ll calm down and just let me.

Brooks
He’s everything I despise. He’s a cop. An arrogant tough-guy type who thinks he knows everything.
He drives me insane and won’t take the hint that I don’t want or need his help.
I’m not weak, and I’m not as defenseless as I once was either.
And still, I can’t seem to fully push him away.
Because maybe this time—just this once—I want to be saved.

Blog Tour – Forbidden Mafia Prince by Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank

Forbidden Mafia Prince by Brooke Blaine & Ella Frank is now live!

 

Forbidden Mafia Prince is the first book in USA Today Bestselling Authors Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank’s M/M mafia romance duet.

“What are you going to do with me?”
“Whatever the hell I want.”

In Manhattan, tensions are rising.
In a play for power, the Rossetti family has made a decisive blow, crippling their rivals—an act that has forced the Fiores to make a desperate move to maintain their supremacy.

Many miles away, Luca Davis, a young medical student, has no idea his life is about to change.
No idea that everything he’s been told about his life has been a lie.
Enter Domenico Rossetti, the ruthless Mafia prince. Powerful and unforgiving, he’s a savage in a suit—and the one who holds the cards when it comes to his new captive.

But when the war escalates and both are forced into seclusion, the two men are faced with a new threat: the rising sexual tension between them.
You don’t fall for the one person you’re supposed to hate, but it’s a temptation neither can resist.
Because falling in love with the enemy isn’t only wrong—it’s forbidden.
And the cost for defying everyone will be their lives.

Brooke Blaine is a USA Today Bestselling Author best known for writing romantic comedy and M/M romance. Her novels lead with humor and heart, but Brooke never shies away from throwing in something extra naughty that will scandalize her conservative Southern family for life (bless their hearts).

She’s a choc-o-holic, lives for eighties bands (which means she thinks guyliner is totally underrated), believes it’s always wine o’clock, and lives with the coolest cat on the planet—her Ragdoll/Maine Coon mix, Jackson Agador Spartacus.

Forbidden Mafia Prince; The Malvagio Duet #1
(#1 within a duet)

Publication Date: July 25, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Duet/New Adult/Dark/Mafia/Forbidden/MM Romance

Author: Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Fantastic suspense from the very beginning that never once let up with a forbidden chemistry that built between the main characters that was explosive and wicked hot! It’s also full of adrenaline pumping, knuckle biting, page turning action!!

Kidnapped right off the street, Luca is held captive with no idea as to why he is taken hostage or what his dark captor wants with him.

A war has begun and as the heir to the Rossetti kingdom, Dom has been told he will sit this one out, locked away with the very prisoner who is at the center of it all.

Frustrated with only himself to rely on, Luca has more questions mounting by the day and no one will answer them. Trapped with his captor only seems to mount confusion on his swirling emotions, and Dom’s dark attitude only seems more enticing as the time ticks by.

Forbidden Prince is fast paced and just so, so good! The tension, the action, and all the mystery…I can hardly stand to wait for the next book because I need to know how everything is going to end for these two. I’m on pins and needles here!!!

About Stalked But Not Afraid

Roman

He’s an influencer—whatever that means. He’s also stunningly beautiful with a feisty attitude I can’t deny intrigues me.

But more importantly, he’s in trouble.

I’m not like my brother. Except for being a cop, I don’t strive to save the entire world.

However, I find myself compelled to save him.

If he’ll calm down and just let me.

Brooks

He’s everything I despise. He’s a cop. An arrogant tough-guy type who thinks he knows everything.

He drives me insane and won’t take the hint that I don’t want or need his help.

I’m not weak, and I’m not as defenseless as I once was either.

And still, I can’t seem to fully push him away.

Because maybe this time—just this once—I want to be saved.

**Stalked But Not Afraid is a standalone with a HEA in the Spark of Hope Series. It’s set around a trauma-support group and will, therefore, touch on extremely sensitive subjects.

BOOK BLURB

My first year at university started with a bang…literally. 

I crashed into someone’s car. Even worse? It turns out that the person I blindsided is my new housemate, Liam, second-year student and football player. 

It’s hate at first sight…until it isn’t. 

But even if he doesn’t hate me anymore, it doesn’t change the fact that he’s straight.

At least, I thought he was.

One night, one kiss, and everything I thought I knew turns upside down.

They say actions speak louder than words.

And his actions tell me that he wants me.

Meet Marie James

 

Let’s see…where to begin…

I’m inching up on the BIG 4-0. The gray hairs are doubling what seems like daily, and the wrinkles and laugh lines are more pronounced than ever.

I have an amazing husband (Married just over 15 years.)

We have two boys we’re doing our best to raise as respectful gentleman.

I have a master’s degree in criminal justice which I used to work as a juvenile probation office until deciding to write full-time in June of 2019. So that means there’s usually always some criminal/law element to my novels.

If I’m not writing; I’m reading.

My favorite genres recently are bully/reverse harem and enemies to lovers. Maybe I’m reliving my traumatic teen years through the girls who actually end up with the boys. (Not that I would change my history since it’s gotten me exactly where I need to be!)

I love coffee. I miss carbs. Music is LIFE. I try not to be too serious.

Review – Blindsided by Becca Steele

59970396. sy475

Blindsided; LSU #1
(A standalone within an interconnected series)

Publication Date: June 9, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Enemies-to-Lovers/New Adult/MM Romance

Author: Becca Steele

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
Absolute angsty, emotional perfection!! The perfect book to kick off my reading for LGBTQ+ month. Liam’s bi-awakening was moving and heartfelt and Noah was the perfect partner to guide him on that journey.

My heart melted for these two men over and over. It constantly went back and forth wavering for who to side with. It bleed for Noah and his need to be needed and accepted. While he’d been openly gay for years, it’s still not an easy path for young men to travel down. His history of being used as an experiment by straight boys bruised his self esteem time again, so he was leery when Liam, a boy who claimed he was straight, kissed him. Yes, Noah was attracted, but he wasn’t about to make the same mistake he’d made in the past. Sweet, sweet Noah. I wanted to hug him over and over.

Liam is torn in two. He doesn’t understand his mixed up feelings and his new housemate,Noah, throws him out of whack time and time again. Liam’s only ever been with women, but there is something about Noah that draws his eyes and he can’t seem to stop staring. Liam’s entire world gets flipped upside down and he doesn’t know what to do or if he wants it flipped back. He recognizes that he’s never felt this way, but those particular thoughts also scare him. He’s a mess and that angst is heartbreaking. The man we meet in the beginning is not who we get to know by the end, so Liam’s journey is A-MA-ZING!! I also want to throw my small two cents in on a very tiny scene with his mum…totally brought tears to my eyes and I loved her!! Everyone needs unconditional love in their world, so thank you to Becca for giving us that.

Their journey together isn’t all sunshine and flowers. They both have baggage and issues to hurdle, but it was also very realistic. Probably one of the more realistic bi-awakening journey’s I’ve read and I really enjoyed the authenticity of their relationship, while still keeping it steamy and in a place where I could escape my own reality if that makes sense.

All of the secondary characters were fantastic, I believe some might be from other spinoff series, but this is my first solo Becca Steele book, as I’ve only read co-authored books of hers, but I didn’t have a single problem catching on to who they were or references they made. So jumping in to this book was easy peasy.

About Bruised But Not Broken

Ben

Spark of Hope: A bi-weekly trauma support group.

This is my nightmare. When I think of a support group, I think of sad people sitting around talking about their feelings and nothing changing.

And yet, when my brother and his best friend, who happens to be a therapist, presented the idea of holding the meetings at my gym, I caved.

Because I, Benjamin Price, have always tried to rescue the people in my life. But I can’t. I’ve usually failed them.

Now, I’m hosting a trauma support group and desperately trying not to fall into my old habits—of attempting to save everyone.

And then, he walks in.

Bruised. But not broken. No matter how exhausted he may feel, a strength in him calls to me.

And there’s no way I can ignore the need deep inside me to at least try.

Colby

I’m tired. I’m afraid. And I don’t want to go back.

Not to the abusive relationship I told myself I was okay with for years.

But what am I supposed to do?

I have no real life skills. All my life, I’ve been told I’m pretty and that’s it.

Then I walk into a gym, looking for a job, but I find so much more.

I don’t want to trust Ben. I don’t believe his help doesn’t come with a price.

But what choice do I really have?

One thing’s for sure . . . Neither of us are getting out of this intact.

What we lose though, that’s anyone’s guess.

**Trigger Warning**

Bruised But Not Broken is set around a trauma support group and will, therefore, touch on extremely sensitive subjects. I’ll always do my best to handle these topics with care and healing, and with no intention of hurting anyone. But please, heed this warning if you have any triggers.

Review – Crossing Borders by Marie James

60456576. sy475

Crossing Borders; Blackbridge Security #10
(#10 within a series)

Publication Date: June 9, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Fake Boyfriend/Bodyguard/MM Romance

Author: Marie James

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
I can hardly wait for everyone else to discover how fantastic Brooks and Archer are together!! I loved their story and this book was the perfect culmination to the end of the Blackbridge series.

There have been hints, easter eggs, and small teasers for multiple books now on what could be happening in Brooks’ professional and personal life, but nothing like the bombs dropped in the last book that actually confirmed what was coming down the pipeline. I don’t know about anyone else, but I was ecstatic to have it all actually confirmed and even more so that their story was absolutely delicious and totally delightful!!

Brooks’ job within the security company would appear to be one of the easier ones, but could also be one of the toughest depending on if you were a people person or not. He is assigned to high profile cases as, the best word I can think of, as an escort, but he’s also a bodyguard. His boyfriend type of services are in the public eye while he provides security. When he’s assigned to Archer Bremen, a rockstar, he’s never been the boyfriend to a man, but it doesn’t deter him from doing his job, nor doing it professionally. What Brooks isn’t prepared for is the feelings Archer stirs up in him considering Brooks has only ever been with women and considered himself straight, but perhaps his outlook on his personal life just shifted. Brooks’ bi-wakening was written so well, I loved taking the journey with him.

Archer needs the help of Blackbridge Security when he blows up his life in a big way. He’s a famous rockstar that not only came out of the closet in a very public way, but blowing up his life has a lot more to do with the way he tried to shove himself back into it. Archer is a storm of a mess, but being around Brooks is when you see him calm and actually trying to be a better man. While he does push Brooks, a lot, he also is a sensitive soul, with a big heart and his vulnerability will break down just about anyone’s walls. He’s a bit manic, he is a soulful rockstar afterall, but his sweet soul really won me over and at the end of the day, these two together are just perfect.

This book travels down the timeline of multiple Blackbridge stories, while the tension and chemistry builds to a delicious level between Brooks and Archer. Dropping all of those teasers back into their appropriate spots made all the anticipation well worth the wait. I adored revisiting some of my favorite moments throughout the series while digging deeper into what all of those hints really were. This book is best enjoyed if the series has been read in order, but if you’ve missed a book or two, you could still jump into their love story and follow along with no problem.

Synopsis:
Although I take my job very seriously—being the resident charmer, the man responsible for helping clients with security, all the while making it look like I’m the newest love interest of insanely gorgeous women—it looks like it’s all fun and games.

I’m getting paid to go on dates to some of the most glamorous places all around the world after all, but at the end of the day, it’s still work.

When the assignment is over, I walk away—usually with a smile and another notch in my bedpost, but who am I to turn down the perks?

This new assignment should be no different. I can play any role handed to me.

Hell, I love a new challenge.

Only Archer Bremen is different… and not just for the obvious reasons.

His British accent hits me in a way I never expected.

The scowl on his face makes me think of a million things I could do to make it fade.

His smile tells me that this new assignment is going to change everything…

About Bruised But Not Broken

Ben

Spark of Hope: A bi-weekly trauma support group.

This is my nightmare. When I think of a support group, I think of sad people sitting around talking about their feelings and nothing changing.

And yet, when my brother and his best friend, who happens to be a therapist, presented the idea of holding the meetings at my gym, I caved.

Because I, Benjamin Price, have always tried to rescue the people in my life. But I can’t. I’ve usually failed them.

Now, I’m hosting a trauma support group and desperately trying not to fall into my old habits—of attempting to save everyone.

And then, he walks in.

Bruised. But not broken. No matter how exhausted he may feel, a strength in him calls to me.

And there’s no way I can ignore the need deep inside me to at least try.

Colby

I’m tired. I’m afraid. And I don’t want to go back.

Not to the abusive relationship I told myself I was okay with for years.

But what am I supposed to do?

I have no real life skills. All my life, I’ve been told I’m pretty and that’s it.

Then I walk into a gym, looking for a job, but I find so much more.

I don’t want to trust Ben. I don’t believe his help doesn’t come with a price.

But what choice do I really have?

One thing’s for sure . . . Neither of us are getting out of this intact.

What we lose though, that’s anyone’s guess.

**Trigger Warning**

Bruised But Not Broken is set around a trauma support group and will, therefore, touch on extremely sensitive subjects. I’ll always do my best to handle these topics with care and healing, and with no intention of hurting anyone. But please, heed this warning if you have any triggers.

BOOK BLURB

My first year at university started with a bang…literally. 

I crashed into someone’s car. Even worse? It turns out that the person I blindsided is my new housemate, Liam, second-year student and football player. 

It’s hate at first sight…until it isn’t. 

But even if he doesn’t hate me anymore, it doesn’t change the fact that he’s straight.

At least, I thought he was.

One night, one kiss, and everything I thought I knew turns upside down.

They say actions speak louder than words.

And his actions tell me that he wants me.

Bruised But Not Broken; Spark of Hope #1
(A standalone within a series)

Publication Date: May 31, 2022

Genre/Tropes: MM/Trauma-Healing/Age-Gap Romance

Author: Nicole Dykes

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A beautiful, hope filled journey that I didn’t want to end.

This is a story about trauma, healing, and budding relationships – both friendship and sensual. It takes a very personal path of not only two men who have gone through some very horrible trials in their lives, but also those close to them who have also experienced trauma in one form or another. There are very raw moments, but offset with extremely tender ones. It’s very well done.

Ben and his brother, Roman, along with their long time friend, Andrew who is a therapist, begin a trauma group therapy meeting at Ben’s gym and while Andrew is the therapist in charge, Ben and Roman lead self defense classes afterwards. This is the initial premise of the Spark of Hope group. A safe space for someone who has been involved in some form of trauma; whether it’s by accident, abuse, attack, bullying, etc…their group is a safe space to meet. Plus Ben’s gym is the perfect spot to not only hold the meetings, but also to have a self defense class where people won’t have to travel or have the chance to change their minds if they have been in a situation where they need that opportunity to feel empowered again.

I have to say I love the premise and what these three men do. While these three men have had a long time bond, so there is lots of ribbing and such, at the heart there is a wonderful respect for one another that makes the story have this warm cozy feel.

Ben Price has only been with one woman in his life, but when his wife files for divorce, he’s left feeling hollow and completely unsure of where life will take him. He’s often accused of having a hero syndrome with everyone in his life, so when a beat up young man steps into his gym looking for a job, of course he offers to help. Never once did Ben look at Colby as anything other than a man who needed a job, a place to stay and someone who really just needed a little help getting back on his feet, but when they begin spending time together as friends and that friendship blossoms into more, Ben no longer has a hollow feeling inside and he sees hope for the first time in a long time, but is it his hero complex kicking in or could he really have true feelings for Colby?

Colby is a young man who will break your heart. The guilt and shame he carries with him is so heavy it’s amazing he can walk around everyday, He’s been emotionally and physically abused for years and like all domestically abused victims he doesn’t know how to break the cycle. Learning how to trust, to stop hearing all the hateful words cycling through his head…well, I like to think it’s fate that had him walking into Ben’s gym one rainy day. However, he isn’t sure Ben could like him for him. Ben has never been with a man before and then there are those awful voices that constantly filter through his mind. Yeah…I know how powerful those can be. I wanted to hug Colby all the time.

Their story touches on a lot of hard topics, but it’s also like a phoenix rising from the ashes in its beauty. I loved reading how both of them blossomed in each other’s presence, because that is what love truly does for the other person, it doesn’t diminish or take away, but it makes the person you love really shine.

Bruised But Not Broken is a beautiful book and I loved reading it.

Blog Tour – Wicked Flame by Ella Frank

He’s ready to steal his heart and never give it back.

Wicked Flame, a sizzling MM romance and the hot conclusion to the Chicago Heat Duet from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank, is out now!

Jameson
Life is hard. I learned that at an early age growing up on the South Side of Chicago. I accepted it, even came to expect it. With a sister who was a constant source of worry, and a track record of losing anyone even remotely close to me, trouble seemed to follow me no matter where I turned.

Some people were born lucky. I was just born.

That’s what I used to believe, anyway, until GQ. The gorgeous guy in the fancy clothes who for some reason decided to look twice at me. He gave me a place to call my own, a space to feel safe, and he made me believe in the impossible—that love was more than just a four-letter word.

Ryan
Life is unexpected. I learned that just recently when I walked into a bar on the South Side and found the love of my life—Jameson Clarke.

He’s everything I’ve always wanted, and yet somehow even better than I imagined. He’s brave, brash, protective of those he loves, and under all that bravado is a vulnerability that calls to my very soul.

Jameson’s a storm cloud, but he thinks I’m the sun. If that’s true, then I’m determined to break through the shadows of his past and steal his heart the way he’s stolen mine.

Blog Tour – Unwanted by Marley Valentine

Unwanted by Marley Valentine is now live!

Two halves of a whole, Arlo Bishop and I were both unwanted kids brought together by the foster system. Dealing with the aftermath of neglect and abandonment, we grew up side by side and found solace in one another.

We wanted.
We needed.
We loved.
Desperately.

But somewhere along the way, Arlo wanted and needed and loved drugs more. So, I did the only thing I could and broke my own heart to save his.

Now, four years later, I’m back in L.A. and face-to-face with my past. Not only does the pain and hurt of our mistakes linger between us but so do our feelings.

I didn’t plan on a second chance—fear of history repeating itself making it hard to forgive and even harder to forget. But with only one touch, one kiss, I was taken back to where it all started.

Two halves of a whole, Arlo and I were made for each other. But we were no longer the unwanted foster kids.

We were grown men.

And I wanted nothing more than him.

Wicked Flame; Chicago Heat #2
(#2 within a duet)

Publication Date: May 24, 2022

Genre/Tropes: Book Duet/Opposites Attract/MM Romance

Author: Ella Frank

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars

Review/Synopsis:

Review:
A wonderful finish to this opposites attract book duet.

Everyone always wants a bad boy, but I want to state for the record that Ryan Carrigan is the best guy to have by your side. Whether it’s in a crisis, for daily organization, for loving hugs, for a sweet smile with his cute blush, and I have to throw out there he has the best trash talking competitive side which is totally speaking my language. Yes, Ryan is totally my pick hands down every day of the week, and I believe Jameson would agree with me.

Jameson needs Ryan’s loving side to offset the bad boy in him. He did not have an easy life growing up and as Jameson lets down his high built walls he realizes just how much he needs Ryan in his life. These two have a few bumps in the road before they reach their happily ever after, but I really loved watching Jameson open up his heart and Ryan truly shine as he fell deeper in love.

My favorite part of this book was when Jameson and Ryan had dinner with two other opposites attract couples, that also happened to be two of my favorite couples within this Chicago world. There must be something about a grouchy, stoic man falling for a happy, sunshiny guy that just does it for me.

Synopsis:
Jameson
Life is hard. I learned that at an early age growing up on the South Side of Chicago. I accepted it, even came to expect it. With a sister who was a constant source of worry, and a track record of losing anyone even remotely close to me, trouble seemed to follow me no matter where I turned.

Some people were born lucky. I was just born.

That’s what I used to believe, anyway, until GQ. The gorgeous guy in the fancy clothes who for some reason decided to look twice at me. He gave me a place to call my own, a space to feel safe, and he made me believe in the impossible—that love was more than just a four-letter word.

Ryan
Life is unexpected. I learned that just recently when I walked into a bar on the South Side and found the love of my life—Jameson Clarke.

He’s everything I’ve always wanted, and yet somehow even better than I imagined. He’s brave, brash, protective of those he loves, and under all that bravado is a vulnerability that calls to my very soul.

Jameson’s a storm cloud, but he thinks I’m the sun. If that’s true, then I’m determined to break through the shadows of his past and steal his heart the way he’s stolen mine.

Wicked Flame is book two in Ryan Carrigan & Jameson Clarke’s story and should be read after Wicked Heat.
