BLURB: Undercover police officer Kell has crossed the line. He’s become trapped in an abusive relationship with his violent thug of a boss and sees no way back without wrecking months of work. The hope of ever being involved with someone who respects him seems a distant dream.
Private investigator Gethin is depressed that the bulk of his work involves following unfaithful partners. He knows just what it’s like to be cheated on. Even worse, his relationship with his ex is complicated and Gethin can see no way of breaking free of a guy who so desperately needs him.
A chance encounter brings Kell and Gethin together, entwining their lives with secrets and danger. They both have reasons to keep things casual. But there are consequences to zipless fucks. Not only do they have to survive people trying to kill them, they need to trust each other and keep their wits about them, while ensuring their hearts stay intact.



Drawn In is my first book by this author and I was excited as always when I read someone new. What I got was a gripping, exciting, sometimes brutal, often sizzling hot crime story with a well-paced love plotline woven into it for good measure.

At first I was a bit confused. I felt a bit disconnected and couldn’t really get into the story. There were too many things going on, but when they finally came together and the whole picture made sense an ok story became a great one. I was truly drawn in.

The writer created two unique and strong characters who do their own thing, follow their own hearts, struggling with their own baggage. but as we know how small our world is, they get to cross each other’s paths in more than one way. The story is starting out pretty slow and I didn’t feel any kind of connection with the MCs but when their lives intervened I got sucked into their exciting and action packed story and I just couldn’t stop reading.

Drawn in is a very well built and wonderfully constructed crime story with an unlikely love storyline. All characters are complex and well-written, and the side plotlines (criminals, family, past baggage) add an extra layer of depth to the story. There’s plenty of very satisfying sexy-time, even a position I’ve never seen or read before and I really need to Google it to see for myself.

When you think things are settled and you can lay back and enjoy some peaceful happy ending, you are punched in the gut with some unexpected surprises, a near heart attack and the most amazingly moving scene in the whole story.

If you enjoy cop stories with two hot, both physically and mentally strong characters, an entertaining and exciting criminal case, carnal desire, and love in its different forms, this is a great book for you. Enjoy!

LENGHT: 140 pages
RELEASE DATE: 19th October 2016


BLURB: Left at the altar by his long-time lover, Spencer, and in desperate need of quality health insurance, Dane Archer can’t say no when his best man and best friend, Gideon DeLuca, steps in. But Dane and Gideon have history, tangled and passionate and complicated.

After seventeen years of cat and mouse, Gideon has realized Dane isn’t the kind of man who ever wants to be caught, and he’s stopped playing Dane’s game.

For Dane, it’s never been a game, but sexual fidelity isn’t his strong suit. Love is too beautiful for limits, something he’s never been able to get Gideon the control freak to understand. Now Dane has nothing but limits, including the timeline on his paper-only marriage to Gideon.

Gideon’s the only person Dane trusts enough to lean on, and Gideon will do anything to get Dane through this crisis. Anything but fall for Dane again.

Living together forces Dane and Gideon to stop circling and face what’s been between them all these years. They just don’t know if they have the power or the time to make things right.

What they do know is that they’re not ready for it to be over.



Take a Chance on It is the third book in the Ready or Knot series. Although it is a beautiful and moving story on its own, I think the best is to read the books in order, to get a better understanding of the dynamics of the four superfriends, and especially the unique and complex connection between Dane and Gideon.

My favorite type of series is where I meet a group of friends and each of them gets their own story. I enjoy getting to know them, but also see the way they interact with each other, the way each of them is shown in a different light in all the different perspectives. This way we understand more clearly that everyone is a hero, everyone has their own story, and everyone has their own reasons for the way they behave. After reading about Dane and Gideon’s relationship in the previous books, I was truly excited to read their story. And what a story I got… taking the serious subject matter, KA Mitchell created a moving, heartbreaking and also uplifting way to show these two guys what they truly mean to each other. This is a layered, complicated relationship with feelings ingrained so deep, so natural, that it takes a life threatening event and unordinary circumstances to bring them to the surface, to force both Dane and Gideon to face their true emotions.

The story is wonderfully written. The characters and their struggles are beautifully portrayed. However, I have mixed feelings. I enjoyed every minute of the book but I’m left a bit uncertain and a bit frustrated to be honest. I feel that I miss important chunks of this story. I also would have liked to read an epilogue. This book feels a HFN but both MCs deserve a big HEA. I’m just hoping for one more book to see what happens to these amazing guys. I highly recommend this story and the whole series!

REVIEW: “FULL CIRCLE” by Victoria Sue


TITLE: Full Circle
AUTHOR: Victoria Sue
SERIES: Sirius Wolf book 7
PUBLISHER: Dark Hollows Press, LLC
GENRE: Mpreg
PRICE: $ 4.99 e-book on Amazon
LENGHT: 154 pages
RELEASE DATE: 17th October 2016

BLURB: Faced with eternal banishment to hell, Anubis, god of the underworld, has found a loophole in one of the oldest laws which will allow him to unleash his evil on an unsuspecting human world. Orion’s only hope to stop him is to accept his challenge: send a champion to win the love of the wolf with the hardest heart. It will take someone with a pure heart to soften a closed one, so faced with the threat of losing not only the werewolves, but the destruction of the human race, the gods can only do one thing — send Adam, one of their own.

 Adam quickly realizes that the werewolf whose love he must win is Jed. Wounded after the loss of his wife and son, Jed promised he would never love again or be responsible for someone else’s happiness. Adam has been given a near impossible task.

 Anubis is eager to see Adam fail, and unbeknown to everyone takes matters into his own hands to make sure of it. Everything happening now is part of his master plan, and finally it has come full circle.

Even if Adam succeeds and wins Jed’s heart, will that love survive when Jed discovers the whole thing was nothing more than a bet? Or when Adam does the one thing he mustn’t and falls in love himself, will he not only break Jed’s heart but completely destroy his own?

lorraine O M G and H O L Y M O L E Y!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 I’m going to be totally honest here, this review has been rewritten so many times, I’ve lost count. I don’t know how to convey just how good this final book in the Sirius Wolves Series was, simply amazing doesn’t cut it – not even close, this book and indeed the entire Series has gone way beyond reviews, it’s a real classy act in a league all on its own.

But is this the end? The entire book had a different feel to it compared to the others, so much so that I don’t believe the final circle has gone through the required 360 degrees of the sphere to be a final circle!  It felt more ecliptic, like an eclipse shading everything in readiness for new beginnings.  Is the author already planning a spin-off series?  If not, she should be.

To save the world, it all comes down to a bet –
“gain the love of a werewolf with the hardest heart”

 But it’s not only just about that either, other things are brewing……..
But the all important one is the above mentioned bet – does good have an unfair advantage over evil? Anubis believes so (and yeah, he’s rotten to the core but he does make an excellent baddie) and is out to prove it, hence this bet.
I did see the “shocker, OMFG moment” coming, in fact I was counting on it, otherwise what happened wouldn’t have had the continuity and believability factor about it, I applaud you Victoria Sue, your devilishly clever and cunning mind must have worked overtime on that one!
Throughout the Series we have always been led to believe that Anubis wanted the wolves and another big shock that came out of the blue, is that he doesn’t, oh no. He wants something even more unique…..
This was page after page of delightful reading, it was lighter and fresher than some of the books with a joyous surprise at the end, we had some doors finally shut whilst others left discreetly but invitingly open and I want to open those doors, so please author, reconsider and get writing!
If I want to be picky? I could say that firstly I was disappointed that we didn’t see Blaze dispatch Alpha Saul to Hell and I thought the final bit with Anubis (and I mean the very, very final bit, not the build up as that was brilliant) was underplayed.  I don’t want to give away any spoilers but I was expecting the Big Bang when Jed turned the tables on Anubis, but I  got a Pop.  But of course as always, the Big Bangs outweigh the little Pops, so it’s a final 5+* from me.  Absolute superb reading, cannot recommend this enough, you are going to love it, I did.

TITLE: And your Enemies Closer
AUTHOR: Cecelia Stryder
PUBLISHER: Lovelight Press
COVER DESIGN: Satyr Designs
GENRE: Contemporary
SERIES: Love and Deceptions – book 1
PRICE: $ 3.95 e-book on Amazon
LENGHT: 224  pages
RELEASE DATE: 25th September, 2016


BLURB: “No one knows the real Cori Archontis. All anyone ever cares about is that I’m the lead singer from that band.”
Five years have passed since Cori Archontis traded dirty money for fame and skyrocketed his band, Love & Deceptions, into stardom—five years spent drowning his past in narcotics, dating women to stay publicly closeted, and running from his mistakes. But Cori’s time is up. The Hollywood based crime syndicate who pushed him to the top of the charts is done waiting for him to pay back his debt.

And they’ve sent the most handsome man Cori’s ever seen to collect what Cori owes them—his life.
“No matter what, I’ll never let myself be like my father.”
The job is simple. Get in, put a bullet through the kid’s skull, and get out. Nero’s done it before. He’s been a member of crime syndicate The Mad Royals for twenty years, and as crime lord Caligula’s right hand man, he’s as unsympathetic as he is ruthless.
And it’s cocky, gorgeous, arrogant flirts like Cori that Nero hates most of all.
But there’s a vibrancy in Cori’s voice and a sincerity in his song that makes Nero’s finger pause before he pulls the trigger—and it fills him with dread. He’s been sworn off men for longer than he’s been a Royal, and there’s no way he’d ever stoop so low as to go down the path he followed.
“I’m ready to give it all up—for you.”
But fate has other plans.
When two troubled pasts collide and expose a threat far more urgent than a simple debt, Cori and Nero’s lives are thrust onto parallel tracks. Forced to trust one another over the course of a single night while the world unravels at their feet and old scars open fresh, if they want to survive, they’ll have to learn to conquer their differences and find middle ground.
Or maybe somewhere even closer than that.




For a debut author, Cecelia Stryder did remarkably well. Yes, I’m the first to admit that there were some holes in the storyline maybe a little too much repetitive detailing that become a tad boring but I liked the originality and overall the book.  I think it was her inexperienced that showed in the length, you could have easily shaved off 20 pages with good editing and made it more sharper and therefore more poignant, but as I have already stated, she is a new author and therefore some latitude must be given.
Though I thought it an original storyline, I couldn’t help but to think back to the original Godfather film, where the singer was propelled into the limelight by The Family and they expected their dues……but this added a certain authenticity about it, I can actually believe that The Mafia has its hands in many pies, so why not the Music Industry as well?
The Royals (aka The Mafia) own the music business and therefore Cori Anchontis and his band, The Love and Deception. They instigated him to stardom and now want their dues which he has stopped paying.
But Cori is sick to the stomach with his life, it’s not what everyone thinks it is and after escaping from his sick and twisted boyfriend, who left him mentally scarred, doesn’t care anymore, he’s not paid The Royals and is expecting to be on the end of bullet.
Nero is that bullet. He’s been following Cori and now ready to show anyone of thinking of crossing The Royals, what happens if they do.  However, the meticulous Nero, who plans with alarming precision, couldn’t have envisaged that Cori’s psycho ex-boyfriend would not only show up that night but also has a very high ranking in a rival group to The Royals and plan to overtake their throne of leadership and rule themselves.
Everything that Nero has valued and worked for has gone from sugar to sh*t and now he is on the run with Cori in tow. He has to work out who he can trust?  who betrayed them? and try and work out his feelings for Cori and what to do with him?
He figures that out pretty quickly by taking him to bed and decides to keep him safe. Suddenly it’s Cori and not The Royals that becomes his priority, can he succeed?
As you can see for yourselves, the premise is great. Apart from tidying it up as one of my minor criticisms’, the biggest one for me was to why Corri really stopped paying his dues?  I didn’t get it?  If anyone knows, please tell me!  And I would have loved to have found out more about The Royals themselves, maybe next book?
No more spoilers from me, read it yourselves to see what happens? but read the blurb carefully, there are trigger warnings and should be heeded.
I’m looking forward to reading what Cecelia Stryder has in store for us in the future?

REVIEW: “LOCKED” by Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine


TITLE: Locked
AUTHOR: Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine
SERIES: PresLocke – book 2
PUBLISHER: Ella Frank, LLC & Brooke Blaine
GENRE: Contemporary
PRICE: $ 3.97 e-book on Amazon
LENGHT: 270 pages
RELEASE DATE: 31st August 2016



Sorry, ladies—and fellas—Hollywood’s hottest action star, Ace Locke, is officially off the market!
The man on Locke’s arm has been identified as Dylan Prescott, the sexy new “it” model currently featured in the latest Calvin Klein ads. Sources tell TNZ the men met on the set of Locke’s upcoming action film Insurrection 2, and that “they only have eyes for each other.”
This is the first public gay relationship for Locke, who came out a year ago, and there has been much speculation on who would finally be the one to catch his eye.
According to multiple eyewitnesses, Locke whisked Prescott away on his private jet for a romantic weekend at Syn, the most exclusive hotel on the Las Vegas Strip. After pictures recently surfaced of the new couple, affectionately named PresLocke, it appears from the possessive way Locke keeps his new beau close that things are heating up.
The world is watching #PresLocke, and we’ll be sure to keep you up to date on this budding relationship!



Locked continues immediately on from the last book and where we left our guys in Las Vegas (yes, you must read this series in order). Their secret is now out, but how will they react?
What really surprised me was Ace. I expected him to be the more scared of the two and at the beginning, he was, but he knows that Dylan is the most important thing in his life and for him, he will be brave and strong.
Whereas Dylan’s career seems to be taking off, Ace is having problems with his. In the past, Ace would have struggled with that but now that he’s met Dylan, he’s changed for the better.  Not only is he now supportive and understanding, he stops Dylan from feeling guilty.  Not only has their relationship grown, it’s going in the right direction.
We get to meet both Ace’s and Dylan’s parents. Both are worlds apart from each other and I felt really sorry for Ace, his are all about appearances with no substance whatsoever but Dylan’s are caring and supporting which we saw in the first book.
The author gave us some very sweet moments, some very hot moments (still fanning myself) and also some very hard moments when Dylan told Ace about his past.
For who loved the Sunset Cove Series, you will be delighted to know that we get to see Derek and Jordan and I have a sneaky suspicion that we may see Logan again in the next  book?  I really hope so, fingers crossed.
I loved this story, it was a combination of romantic hotness entwined with a bit of drama, but I didn’t lose any sleep worrying about them as they got their HEA!

So why 4*? Well, there was a sort of “cliffhanger” (no spoilers from me) and I wanted more –  there’s definitely more to say!  But we are going to have to wait until next year, I’m hoping it’s the early part, I really can’t wait but I’m going to have too – I can do this.

TITLE: Broken, Collared, and Ready for Revenge
AUTHOR: James Cox
SERIES: The Gentlemen Brothers – book 3
PUBLISHER: Evernight Publishing
PRICE: $ 3,99 e-book on Amazon
LENGHT: 94 pages
RELEASE DATE: 18th August 2016


BLURB: When the collar comes off, all that’s left is a broken man…

Alexander Gentleman has spent fifteen years being beaten into submission and tortured beyond anything a human should survive. He’s fractured around the edges when his brothers finally save him. With the help of “One Nut” Nigel, the collar is removed. He’s starting to remember the faces of those he’s killed and fighting the urge to murder everyone around him. But the one who put that clockwork device on him is still on the loose. With the help of Nigel, he tries to be integrated into a society he no longer understands.

Can he control himself long enough to get his revenge? Will Nigel be his savior or will Alexander embrace his darker side?



One nut Nigel was the nuts but it’s Alexander who stole the show

I knew after reading the first two books that I was going to like this but I wasn’t prepared for how much I LOVED it and I can thank Alexander Gentleman, the youngest brother of the Gentleman Brothers for that (well maybe some credit should be aligned to the author, lol).
The heavy heart I carried after reading the first few pages soon turned to a delighted heart and the smile remained throughly the whole book and having Logan’s sarcastic little quips of humour certainly helped to keep it there.

For me, this story had a different feel to it than the first two, it was somewhat more gentler in the love/sex department, now don’t get me wrong here, there’s very hot steam being produced – James Cox certainly put the steam into Steampunk – and I really liked it and it was so fitting for this storyline.
At a very young age, on a fateful night, Alexander was brutally torn from his brothers and made into a child slave, working in the tunnels (James Cox you broke my heart reading this). When they grew too big to fit into the tunnels (and if they survived this brutal, harsh world),  they were taken, collared and turned into mindless, savage Wraths following any order given to them.

Alexander’s brothers never gave up hope and kept looking for him. After many years, they finally find him and remove the controlling collar. But can Alexander be controlled?  is he too broken and therefore unable to function in this strange new world he now sees?  and there’s Nigel?  why does certain parts of Alexander’s body “thicken” when he’s near?  For those answers, you will have to read it yourself to find out…….
Over the years that I have read James Cox, I have always admired his imaginative imagination, I would love to know how his mind works when thinking up those outrageous inventions that he seems to conjure up on a regular basis, but I have to give him full credit for having the balls (sorry Nigel, I hope I didn’t hurt your feelings there) in openingly taking his own personal fantasy of a co*k sucking machine and making into a reality!  **high five James**

Brilliant, brilliant read, for me the best of the Series and like most of the books that this author writes, if can be read very successfully as a stand alone if you fancy reading this one first.

Five Alexander is not hopeless but hopeful stars from me.

TITLE:Untochable Beauty

SERIES: The Cubi – book 1
GENRE: Contemporary
PRICE: $ 4.99 e-book  on Amazon Store
LENGHT: 229 pages
RELEASE DATE: 7th October 2016


BLURB: Business school is not for Daniel. Not after making the cover of Teen Model. The only problem is that his parents don’t agree, and Daniel skips school to set his plans for fortune and fame in motion. Meeting the award-winning photographer Heimli will change his life, but not in the ways the nineteen-year-old young man expects.

At the age of four hundred thirty-six, Seldon has fed on more beautiful men than he can remember. Living in seclusion from the human world, humans are brought to the Incubi and Succubi as slaves to feed on. Amongst these slaves are the rare Untouchables. When Seldon is entrusted with the safekeeping of one, he has his work cut out for him—especially since this Untouchable gets on his nerves. And under his skin.



Finishing a book like that… Seriously… If I didn’t know that the second book is coming in January, I would be truly pissed. Now I’m just slightly annoyed that I have to wait to read on. Ok. So let’s start again. Untouchable Beauty is the first book in a new series. This is also my first story by this author and I was taken outside my comfortzone of contemporary romances again big time. I couln’t stop reading, even when some scenes made me cringe or shake my head in disbelief. I really like the writing style, the diversity of the characters, and the fantasy world Meraki P. created is unique and a lot more layered than it first meets the eye. This is the tipical case when you are intrigued and repulsed at the same time. The reader is led into a hierarchical community of creatures feeding on lust, pleasure and sex, the rules and guidelines explained step by step woven into the story. There should be a few warnings before you start reading this book. If you don’t enjoy sex, just for the sake of it, being rough and carnal, this story is not for you. If you are able to open your mind and see this whole world as a vivid fantasy it intends to be, you’re in for a sensual, sometimes brutal, but very entertaining and often thought provoking ride. You don’t have to agree with all the theories the writer waves into the plotline. I didn’t. But the point is that you’ll be made to think. About your life, your parents or parenting, about our society, and the importance of life in general.

Up until almost the end, I didn’t see how this book is going to feel whole, but with an unexpected event it became a full story even if it ended in an even more surprising way that leaves us with a cliffhanger, which will be solved soon… I hope. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. I’m not saying this book is for everyone, but if you enjoy fantasy, don’t mind a bit of dubious/non-con, and lots of sizzling sex, this is a great read for you!

After a heady night of love, Josh is devastated when Will turns out to be a millionaire. He’s not a hustler. He couldn’t take and he couldn’t compete. He retreats into his music.
Will is sure they could have something special and tries to prove his love for Josh in the only way he knows how. Trouble is—it’s the wrong way.
Josh is shocked to discover he can’t forget Will.
They want each other. Their chemistry is scorching. Their encounters erotic.
But Josh is running in the opposite direction as Will longs to love him.
Can love triumph?
A fun gay erotic romance 



I’ve not had a quickie like this and enjoyed so much in a long time – thank you Elodie Parkes.

Insta-love is one of my favourite reads and this short, sweet but sexy little offering was just so easy to read.

Can two men, both still in the closest to the intruding world and whose lifestyles are so vastly different, find mutual ground to build a everlasting relationship?

Will and Josh were just perfect for each other and though they met whilst at college, only one of them remembers, now I would have loved more on that from the author when they do start seeing each other but it’s only short, so I’m going to forgive her.

Yet again this author offered up something different and one of the reasons I like her books, you never really know what you are going to get until you start reading. Of course this is Elodie Parkes and I think her trade mark should be Queen of Stalkerism, she can’t help herself and even here in this sweet little treat, their was a hint of it breaking through, which made me smile and wonder what she is going to surprise us with next?

Due to length, it’s 4* from me and if you are looking for a little quickie with a music based theme, look no further, you’ve just found it.

BLURB: Music is drummer Tim Chalmers’s great escape and the one thing that’s never let him down. But his band Spiral’s meteoric rise to fame has made it difficult for him to maintain a low profile. Unwanted press pesters him after a public breakup with a volatile ex-girlfriend who loves the limelight as much as he loathes it. Tim’s main goal is to avoid confrontation. However, when a handsome stranger in a dive bar turns out to be someone he might know, everything changes.

Carter Hamilton-Temple might be a successful financial consultant with more brains, sophistication, and charm than most, but he always falls for the wrong guys: closet cases or men with issues. He can’t fight his attraction to tattooed rock star Tim, but can he trust his own judgment? When the thrill of danger combined with a fierce physical connection proves too strong for either man to resist, a quiet liaison away from the public eye and curious friends seems like a safe bet. But some secrets are hard to keep. When rumors threaten to rock his world, Tim realizes it’s time to confront his fear with his own kind of honesty.



12833361_10205887579250242_1339245014_nThis is the third A Kind of Story and I was having mixed feelings when I started reading. On one hand I adore Lane Hayes, I have read and enjoyed all her books so far, and loved the first two instalments in this series. On the other hand, this is the third book. Is it possible to keep that kind of standard throughout a series? I mused… I shouldn’t have worried. If possible the author just raises the bar every time she has a new release. I was seriously glued to my Kindle, and apart from a few hours of much needed sleep I read it in one sitting.

A Kind of Honesty is absolutely my kind of story. It is simple, but has a lot of depth, it is hot and sensual, but equally emotional, it has complications and a fair amount of angst, but just enough to keep the story flow, and the reader at the edge of their seat. The main focus of the story is our main characters and their relationship. We are given the chance to get to know them in every way possible. Layer after layer is peeled off to show us who Tim and Carter truly are, and how their building connection forms and enhances both of them. Their explosive meeting in the first chapter gives a boost start and I was truly intrigued where the plot is going to lead us from that point. I wasn’t disappointed. I was taken on a sensual and emotional ride, I will never forget. My heart was breaking at times, I was laughing out loud, I was angry and sad and although I felt sorry for Tim, I wanted to shake him a couple of times. The heat level in this book is over the top. Tim and Carter’s chemistry is one of the hottest I’ve read for a long time.

This is a definite must read for everyone who enjoys unforgettable love stories with strong characters, plenty of sizzling hot sexy-time, a wonderful set of secondary characters, and second chances. Highly recommended!
