Blurb: Underneath Cuthbert Lewis’s prim charcoal suit beats a heart that longs for a bad boy to spank him and love him completely and thoroughly. Ponytailed, tattooed Samuel Gosling knows exactly what he needs. Starting with getting up close and personal against the alley wall outside Pinky’s gay bar.

Cuthbert is the final co-owner of The Paint Store. All his friends have found their Mr. Right, but happiness hasn’t come his way yet. And just when he thinks Samuel might be his answer, he discovers that due to his trusting innocence someone has been taking advantage of him at work.

Sam is falling for Cuth fast and hard, but can two such very different people ever find common ground, other than against a wall? Is Cuthbert too naïve to cope with the real world? And what about the other The Paint Store owners? Are they going to get involved as well?

Review: This is the fourth story in the Paint Store Boys series and they should be read in order. They are a blast to read. In fact, this one is my favorite. It has a story line that is not only believable but also amazing.

Cuthbert is an accountant, a co-owner of The Paint Store and stuck in a rut. He has a kink that he is worried he will never find a man to fill. He loves to be spanked so hard that it leaves bruises. Well surprise he meets the sexy man of his dreams.

Sam is falling in love with Cuth and loves the idea of getting to spank his little man. The problem is Cuth doesn’t have the faith he has. He is worried that Sam will think of him as a failure after learning that he was betrayed at work. That he would think he was stupid and naive. However, Sam knows that he will always support his man. All he has to do is keep on loving him.

This story is a blast to read and I cannot wait to read more from this amazing author. It gave me everything that I could want in a story, well other than the length. I would love to hear more about these amazing men. It gave me sexy men, quirky little mates, best friends, deceiving bosses, excitement, and hot sex. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading it and kept it all the way to the end.

I would recommend reading this story. You will get a kick out of it.

Blurb: Does fate ever make mistakes? What would happen if she did? Moving to the low mountains of California and building a home there is Troi’s dream. When he buys an old ranch out from under five wolf shifter alphas in the area, he and his new neighbors get off to rocky starts. Meeting his mate, alpha Talon, doesn’t help, as the man has different ideas about mating.

When Garrett, alpha of another pack, first meets Troi at the same time, he’s smitten, but knowing Talon is the man’s mate, he stays in the background. After Talon publically rejects Troi twice, Garrett is more than happy to step up to the plate and gets a real surprise. Troi is carrying Talon’s pups! Garrett is the perfect man and Troi falls hard for him, leaving the merman totally confused.

Talon is his mate, but doesn’t want him. Garrett isn’t his mate but very much wants him. Will fate ever get it right?

Review: This is the first story for this series and you should start with this one first.

It is a bit of bizarre at first. In fact, I wanted to strangle Talon. When the news of a ranch being sold to a human the alpha’s had to go see if they could purchase from him. Troi is a merman shifter and there is something different about him. He is like a starfish, he can get pregnant. When the alpha’s showed up Troi knew that Talon was his mate. The problem was Talon was an ass. He denied Troi twice public. Garrett was another alpha and he knew something was terribly wrong.

Garrett had wanted Troi from the moment he saw him. When Talon got worse with his hatred, anger and violence Garrett knew he had to step in. Somehow, fate had made a mistake and given the wrong man his mate. He knew that Troi was his mate, just as Talon was Troi’s. It was up to fate to fix what was wrong and make it right.

This story had a twist to it that made it quite a bit of fun. I was surprised by it and absolutely loved the series. The only problem I had, was how Talon hurt Troi. I thought that part could have been changed a bit, but it turned out to be perfect. I loved it and cannot wait to get my hands on the next story to this series. I have found another author that I will be checking out. It gave me almost everything I could want in a story. Two sexy men, different types of shifters, excitement, angst, action, and lots of danger. It actually gave me that and more.

I would recommend reading this story especially if you love twist and turns to a story.

Reviewer: Cat

Blurb: Up until Travis arrived on his doorstep, Charlie had lived a very solitary life. He had surrounded himself with isolation; a couple million acres of red dirt, scorching sun and loneliness.

Six months on, winter has settled over the desert, and Charlie has the life he never dreamed possible. But living and working together, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, for six months straight starts to take its toll.

Charlie is a stubborn, stubborn man, who tends to have more conversations in his head than what comes out his mouth, whereas Travis has no problem saying what’s on his mind. And even as they both struggle to communicate, struggle to make sense of need versus want, Charlie can see that he’s pushing Travis away – yet seems helpless to stop it.

When it all boils down to whether Travis should stay or go, maybe the decision won’t be theirs to make

Review: This is book two in the series. I would suggest you read them in order for best effect since it is a continuation of the same characters.

Travis has decided to stay in the outback with Charlie. Though they both share a room, Charlie wants to keep their being a couple, as quiet as possible. He still is dealing with his demons or should I say his father’s ghost about being gay. He also isn’t sure Travis will stay forever so he sees no reason to out himself to the other ranchers.

I absolutely loved this book. I didn’t think it could get better than the first but it did. I loved Travis bringing home the baby kangaroo. This story was about Travis having to fight to stay in Australia with Charlie and Charlie facing what he wants with Travis. It was a very beautiful fight for love.

I found this story so captivating that I couldn’t stop once I started. I really felt Charlie in this story. It’s a beautiful rendition of love, acceptance, and coming out. I had to jump right into the third book!

If you like, stories set in other countries, the Australian outback, ranchers (yep, hot sexy cowboys with accents!), agriculture, a very lovely romance, and some pretty hot mansex, this is definitely for you. This series is now one of my favorites and Charlie and Travis are at the top of my favorite couple list!

Blurb: For Brantley Colton, his crusade was over. There was nothing in the abyss left for him. Whatever he had once believed in had become a lie. There was no light at the end of the tunnel, just a long highway ahead, a dark road without signposts to direct him. Where would he go from here? The finality in his soul belied some joy in the closing moments. It was over, he could die now…, but he couldn’t die happy.

It had only been a few hours since he had put the Winter Glade Motel in his rear-view, but it seemed longer. Colton drove the desolate highway but felt tired and needed sleep. The air conditioning was on high to fend off the humid Florida evening. The air against his face was the only thing preventing him from drifting into dangerous sleep; even so, he contemplated the series of events that had him traveling down 1-75 in the middle of the night…with the bloodstains of the murdered man still present on his shirt. He had used an alias to register at the motel, paid in cash but feared something had been left behind which could tie him to the murder.

He needed time to finish the job at hand and his sloppy second-guessing had placed him in peril. Colton had never been one for prayer, but felt like it was a good time to drop to his knees, to confess his crime and ask for forgiveness. Not that it would have done any good for him

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This story is not a romance, it’s a thriller. There is both m/f and m/m sex in it. It seems like there are three stories in one in this book. You will be introduced to Brantley Colton, John Reston, and the serial killer.

Brantley Colton is a man on a mission to make the one who took someone very dear to him pay. You don’t learn the exact whys and how’s of it until later in the story. John Reston is a FBI profiler trying to find and stop a killer before he strikes again.

I don’t want to give away the details of the plot, whys and how’s. It’s a story of a sadistic killer who toys with his victims for days until he tires of them and brutally murders and then dumps their bodies before moving on the next victim and two men who are intent on stopping his horrifying acts.

Good read. But be warned there are horrifying and disturbing scenes in this book that may be too much for some readers.

Reviewer: Lisa
Blurb: Yuri knows he has been truly blessed by fate when he gets his first sight of his forever mate. The shy little redhead is breathtaking. He also turns out to be sweet and adorable and in need of a strong shifter mate that can protect him from the evils in the world. Yuri truly believes he is the man for the job. He just doesn’t expect to have that tested so soon after meeting Liam.

Liam O’Conner is pretty sure he has died and gone to heaven when the most handsome man in the bar comes to sit down next to him. Yuri seems to hang on his every word, and if the hungry glint in the man’s eyes is anything to go by, Liam just might get lucky.

But fate has a funny way of making a person work for what they want, and the mating between Yuri and Liam is no different. As much as the two men just want to be left alone to get to know each other better, outside forces seem intent on ending their mating before it barely begins. Only with the help of their friends and family will they have a chance to find out if they can be happy as forever mates.

Review: This is book four of this series and they should be read in order. Stormy Glenn has once again rocked my world. She has given me a paranormal romance that blasts the others out of the water.

I loved Liam. He just comes off as innocent, naive, and so damn cute. He and his three best friends are going across the states to check out someone who needs help. However, his friends decided to stop at a backwaters bar to get drinks. Now it would not be a problem if they were not so flamboyant. You can take one look at them and just know that they are as gay as can be. Heck Rue was even wearing guyliner.

Yuri knew the moment the four sexy little men were going to be forever mates. Liam was his and he was going to love his mate forever. These feisty mates were going to make them stronger and probably drive them crazy. Now if only they can keep them safe from the idiots trying to take over the pack. That and get Stefan and Bay to start communicating.

This is amazing story and I absolutely had a blast to read. Its characters are so down to earth and kooky that you can’t help but fall in love with them. I loved this book and cannot wait to read more by this amazing author. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It has its serious tone but there is a lot of humor in it. To me if the story can’t make me laugh then it is not right for me.

I would recommend reading this story if you love sexy men, shifters, feisty mates, arrogant jerks, passion and fire, hot sex and danger.

Blurb: Mark has film star looks, a body to die for and a successful career as a gynecologist, but he’s lacking something – like a boyfriend, for instance. He’s also a porn star on the side with a hundred DVDs to his name and a libido to match.

Then, along comes a patient who seems all set to destroy everything. Will he be able to talk his way out of the mess this time?

Perhaps he’ll need to call on divine guidance from Holy Joe, the school chaplain, who already knows so much about his past…

Review: So, when Mark is first introduced, he is making a porn movie called Private Practice. Which will, unbeknownst to him, bites him in the ass. He goes by the name Rick Longbow and has made around 100 movies. The story then goes back to the beginning when he was 16 years old and has his first sexual experience with a teacher at his school. Paul is 6 years older than Mark, so it’s not too creepy. OK maybe a little. After their night of passion, Paul disappears and leaves Mark heartbroken. Mark goes off to medical school and finally meets up with the man who will introduce him to the porn industry. Rick is born and becomes a famous porn star, and Mark becomes an OB/GYN.

OK, so more porn scenes are shot and given in detail. Some things happen with a husband of a patient. Not all of it is explained. But that is not the point. The book makes no real life sense and I really don’t think it’s meant to. There are too many things that are just not logically possible. However, the sex is hot and detailed, and there is a lot of tongue in cheek moments.

This book is really just a fun read for no other purpose than to enjoy a sexy little break from reality. This is really what more do you need at times. So if you need something light and easy, then I would recommend this book. If you are looking for serious angst and drama, then this is not it.

Blurb: Big things really do come in small packages.

Shamus is small…really small, but being a leprechaun, that’s okay. What isn’t small about him though, is his magic. When his father disowns him from not only the family, but also his clan, Shamus knows the resulting upsurge in his magic will eventually burn him out. Instead of concentrating on finding a solution to his problem, his thoughts remain on the most irritating man he has ever met, Zee.

Zee is a water sprite hiding a dark secret, one that led to the death of his only lover. He can’t let anyone in, can’t let anyone close—it isn’t safe. While he has been able to keep his distance from everyone so far, a redheaded leprechaun with a smart mouth and irresistibly shiny toys tests his resolve.

Zee hates Shamus and delights in irritating him, but when the leprechaun goes missing, Zee is going to have to decide if he really hates Shamus after all, or if he is just lying to himself.

Review: Shamus McCain is the leprechaun Guardian of the Preternatural. His fiery red hair matches his temper that is proof positive, dynamite comes in small packages. He hasn’t had a relationship since his wife and son were killed, his family betrayed by their own clan. His only family to speak of now are his fellow Guardians. As of late though, his magic has become unpredictable and volatile and no one can figure out why.

Zee is a water sprite with an attitude that was rescued by the Guardian’s on their last mission. He has a flare for drama and a knack for getting into trouble, especially when Shamus is around. The two are like fire and water, in more ways than one! They clash, fight and hate one another with equal fervour, oh but the sexual tension underneath all that anger is palpable.

Zee’s people are supposed to be able to give life or energy to others, but in a strange twist of fate, Zee actually has the ability to drain life and energy. But he’s having trouble getting over his first lover, who he killed not realizing what his powers were capable of. Zee and Shamus are so busy fighting and hating each other, that they don’t even realize the connection they share.

Zee has never been able to touch someone without draining them, but he can touch Shamus. That fact is proven with a VERY heated make out session in the halls of the compound. And the only time Shamus is calm, in control and not wreaking havoc on everything around him with his unstable magic is when Zee is within arm’s reach. The question is, will they realize the bond they share before it’s too late?

Oh but I loved this book! I’ve been waiting for someone to come along and jerk a knot in Shamus’s ass for a while now. The way these two compliment each other’s personalities was amazing, very yin and yang. I’m surprised the compound is still standing what with Shamus and his little grenades coupled with Zee’s water balls, and then the two of them going at each other like it was a paint ball tournament on crack. And then, when they finally succumb to the mutual attraction, the chase is on.

Fans of this series are going to love this latest installment. You get a more in-depth look into Shamus’s past and still get to visit with some of your favorite Guardians. There is the usual tease for the next story and some groundwork laid for future books. We are getting close to the end of this series though, only a few more Guardians left to find their mates. I’m excited to learn where fate is going to take all these characters I’ve come to love, but I’ll be sad to see the doors to this world close in the end.

A must read for Paranormal/Shifter and Romance fans!

Blurb: “I don’t like to be called an Assassin. I prefer the term problem solver.”

My name’s Alex. I’m an average guy. I kill people for a living. But don’t judge me.

I don’t take jobs on just anybody though. I only kill the really annoying people, like cheaters or abusers. So if you think about it, I’m actually doing God’s work—okay, maybe that’s stretching things a bit.

Other than the whole committing murder and trying to get away with it thing, my life is simple.

Well… except for the fact I’m in love with a fellow assassin who happens to be my mentor. I also have to make sure I’m careful when I’m on the job because if I ever fail a hit, I’ll be considered a “liability” and be executed promptly. Oh, and there’s a small chance someone in the organization is trying to have me killed. But I’ll figure that out, eventually. Did I mention I’m gay?

Okay, maybe my life isn’t so simple.

Review: Alex is an assassin for hire who works for an organization who takes their jobs seriously. Out of the blue, he is assigned to mentor a new assassin, which is suspicious as usually the senior members are assigned. Along the way, his suspicions are slowly confirmed that someone is out to kill him.

His ex, Lance, a senior assassin and the man who mentor him, warns him to be cautious and not to trust anyone in the organization. It all ends at a cliffhanger that I had a suspicion of when the new assassin was introduced into the story.

Very interesting, well-written story. Loved the sarcastic comments of Alex all throughout the book as was his character. The details of how Alex went about completing a mission were meticulous and precise. The sex between two deadly assassins, Lance and Alex, was hot.

Great read. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book as the story continues.

Blurb: Working Vice for the Seattle PD, Connor Bishop’s favorite part of the job is going undercover. His current assignment is to get close to Riley Drapeau, a human trafficker backed into a corner by the FBI and turned informant. Connor needs to milk him for information on his organization, but while doing so, sees an entirely different Riley than he expected.

Caught off balance, Connor relies heavily on Lucas, his outside man and only link to the real world, but he gets sucked in by Riley and his attempt to clear his name and prove his partners fabricated evidence to frame him.

Up to his eyeballs in the dark world of trafficking, Connor finds it easier to believe Riley than what the FBI is saying, especially when a leak is uncovered within the Bureau. The choices Connor has to make become even more difficult when Lucas admits he has feelings for him and promises a safe life far from harm. But Connor can’t deny the only man he wants to be with is Riley. This forces him to decide if his addiction to the dangerous side of life can include loving a criminal.

Reviewer: KathyMac

Review: When I recently discovered Hayley B. James was releasing not just another book, but also another in her Secret Sin series, I was beyond thrilled. I first came to know this author in 2011 when she released her first novel, Undercover Sins. That story immediately became one of my most favorites and still is today.

Undercover Addiction can be read as a stand-alone and even though the characters from the first story play a really important role here, the author gives enough back story to fill any gaps. So, it’s not mandatory, but you really are missing out on a great story.

Connor Bishop, an undercover agent, has just wrapped up a 3 month sting operation when he is asked to go back in. Needing more information to bring down the rest of the scum behind the human trafficking ring Connor quickly agrees to go back. He already fears he likes this particular lifestyle that Caleb lives, his undercover alter ego, a little too much. He likes the danger and he likes being up close to humans who may have a little more monster in their DNA.

Riley Drapeau is the criminal informant Connor will work with. He’s also the same man he had in his bed just a few days earlier. Hooking up at the local bar for a one-night tryst suddenly has a lot more meaning behind it. He fears Riley targeted him on purpose and he may not be wrong with that assumption. Aside from that fear, they definitely have chemistry and he’s pretty sure the spark is not one-sided. He really wants to trust Riley but he needs to remember he is also a very dangerous man. A man who has no compassion for humans and finds nothing wrong with killing them if they are in the way.

One of many problems Connor is left to unravel is the two personalities he picks up with Riley. When faced with his associates, Riley is controlling and intimidating. When it’s just the two of them, Riley is compassionate and caring. He’s pretty sure they both are feeling the same desires. Also, his words behind closed doors go against the persona he portrays in public.

“You’re beautiful like this,” Riley whispered, pressing a slicked finger into him.
Connor was compliant but moved his hips in response to Riley’s touch. Riley
reached around, grasped Connor’s heavy cock in his free hand, and
repeated, “Beautiful.”

When it is no longer just the two of them, Mason, Riley’s assistant, makes his feelings known that he does not like Connor. He feels threatened by his presence and jealousy runs rampant through his mind. As far as Connor is concerned, in regards to his safety, Mason is a much bigger threat than Riley.

Connor tries to keep himself grounded and keep his real identity in the forefront as much as possible. He relies heavily on his friend Lucas who he trusts more than anyone. When Lucas tells some of his own secrets he’s been carrying, Connor is taken my complete surprise. He doesn’t know how to process this new revelation and right now is not a good time with his life on the line.

Riley is playing a game, not only with himself, but everyone involved in this case. There are many times throughout the story I could not tell if he was telling the truth or just a really good liar. As danger surrounds all of them, fear and worry will take over your thoughts. More than once, I caught myself holding my breath.

Underneath Riley’s exterior, he wants to be a good man. He has never had love but he wants to find it. I believe Connor changed him and made him want to be a better man. As the showdown comes to a full explosion people will be hurt and betrayal will be more evident than ever. When the smoke clears, there will be agonizing moments of despair. Truths are lingering to be told but may not see the light of day. Who will take the fall and who will walk away? Regardless to either outcome, all of them will lose something that had once been valuable.

This story has many twists and turns with edge of your seat excitement. The author does an outstanding job of keeping your interest with action packed drama. The dialogue is serious most of the time, but humour finds its place when needed. The MC’s and even the side characters have a camaraderie between them, which makes the story flow seamlessly. It’s obvious the author took great pains in relaying a plot filled with danger, mystery, suspense, and love. While Connor and Riley did have sex, and their moments in the bedroom were very passionate, it was not the focus. I think they really bonded during these moments and slowly started to trust each other.

Hayley B James has written a perfect story IMO. She has given us two sexy characters who at their core want love but before that is fully accomplished they must work for it and develop trust and honesty between them. She also has a major development late in the story that will having you going, OH MY GOSH! ARE YOU KIDDING ME? And… if that isn’t enough to keep you invested, their banter is contagious and sure to have you smiling.

I would recommend this to anyone who loves the good guys especially when they get mixed up with a bad boy along the way.

Blurb: When an angel and a demon fall for the same mortal man there is only one solution…share him.

Halloween night at the Inferno club always draws a crowd. When Tristan spots a stunningly gorgeous man dressed as a demon across the dance floor he sets out to draw his attention, little realizing he has already gained the notice of another. The demon disappears into the throng of revelers, but with the heavenly handsome Machidiel in his arms, Tristan doesn’t mind.

Even though Mac warns him they can never have more than a one-night stand, Tristan longs to see the man who gave him the best sexual experience of his life again.

One year later, Tristan opens his door to find Alastor, the demon from the Inferno, who claims they have a date tonight.

Alastor may be the one man who can make Tristan forget Mac. Little does he realize Mac isn’t as far from his reach as he believes. When Mac reappears, he has a proposition for Tristan and Alastor, one that means breaking rules and potentially getting him stripped of his wings.

A ménage formed between an angel, a demon, and a human means the sex is hotter than hell itself, but only time will tell if the relationship they have forged together is made in Heaven or Hell.

Publisher’s Note: This book was previously released by another publisher. It has been revised and re-edited for release with Totally Bound Publishing.

Purchase Link: https://www.totallybound.com/between-heaven–hell

Review: This book is a 2nd edition and although it has been polished up, there are no noticeable changes to the story.

Alastor is a Demon and Machidiel is an Angel they both yearn for the other but they think it is forbidden when both of them fall for the same human Tristan they think they have found a way to be together without breaking the rules, but not everything is as it seems and they come close to losing Tristan forever. Tristan was drawn to both Alastor and Mac and was happy to be with them but jealousy makes him doubt how they feel for him, he has to believe in their love if he is going to survive.

Well, what can I say but ,wow a brilliantly written story that is the perfect blend of heaven and hell, with some twists thrown in for good measure. Tristan falls for both Alastor and Mac, but he has doubts as to how they really feel for him. Do they just want him as a way for them to be together or do they genuinely have feelings for him? Alastor has loved Mac for years, but as a demon, he doesn’t think he deserves to have him. With Tristan, he begins to find happiness and a way to have Mac in his life. But, he feels jealous that Tristan always seems to go to Mac first. Mac is just happy to have both men in his life any way he can get them, but something happens to disturb the balance and he has to make sacrifices not once, but twice.

This is one hell of a story that has twists that you never see coming. The feelings of love between the three are good, but when you have a Demon who won’t admit to love and a human who feels he is a substitute, then you know the doubts will set in. and some people will just take advantage of that. Especially when that person has marked Tristan to become a demon. You can feel Tristan’s frustration that there is nothing he can do to stop the outcome no matter what he wants and then there is Mac and Alastor’s fear that Tristan will never remember them.

I think that these three will grow on you, although there are times that you want to smack each one on different occasions. I think that you will also really want to smack Lawrence (Tristan’s friend). And you will grit your teeth at Tristan’s mistrust in Mac and Alastor. You will shake your head at Mac’s need to sacrifice himself time and again without telling anyone else. And you will despair at Alastor’s belief that he isn’t redeemable and can’t admit his love to Mac and Tristan.

I will recommend this to those who love Angel’s and Demon’s, fantasy, twists and surprises, really hot sex, love, jealousy, temptation and an ending that lets you know there is more to come.
