Blurb: Can a flashy sous chef and a hard-working landscaper go beyond their pasts and find one another?

Homeless as a teen, Malcolm Bissette has found a new life at the Southern Charm. Flamboyant, he often changes his hair color on a whim. At sixteen, he crushed hard on the landscaper Reece Simpson.

Now all grown up, Malcolm still has a crush on Reece, but there appears to be no reciprocation from him. Malcolm watches him at work every day from the kitchen, but lets the crush disappear. He vows to forget the man—that is, until Reece changes the entire game.

Waiting for years to get his hands on the vast overgrowth around the Charm, Reece Simpson dives into the project with enthusiasm. Preferring plants to people, he sticks to just brief moments with men. There is one man he would consider staying beyond a moment with, though—the flashy, colorful sous chef at the Southern Delights. Realising his feelings, Reece is knocked off his feet by a wave of emotions. Is he in time to catch this flirty chef?

What would it be like to have Mal in bed? Would it make the summer afternoons even steamier? Is there a chance for love for both of them? Could they entertain the idea of a life together like their friends?

Review: This is book three in the Southern Charm series. You do need to read these in order. You can find them all here https://www.totallybound.com/series/southern-charm.

On the Green Picks up with Reese. He owns a busy landscaping business. He has been dying to get hold of working the Charm and would also like to get his hands on the sexy sous chef Malcolm. He always thought he was cute but too young. Now he is a very sexy, flamboyant young man who likes colorful hair.

Malcolm was thrown out when he came out and Dakota had found him at 16, gave him a job as dishwasher and helped him rise to head sous chef. He has crushed on Reese since he first met him but Reese doesn’t seem to know he exists.

I hate to say this but I didn’t like this one near as much as the other two. It seemed a bit unconnected at times. I didn’t see where the first couple of chapters even fit in with Reese on a job elsewhere. Also, there were some places where we got scenes that had happened in other books instead of referencing back almost as if this book was in-between each of the others instead of following. So though I said this series should be read in-order you may actually enjoy reading this one on its own more. LA so the ongoing issues form the last two books ever got brought up and reconciled still.

Having said that, I do love Malcolm. Love him in all the books. He is bright and colorful (literally) I adored the reference to his hair and mood changes. I also love the energetic Dorian and cannot wait to see his story.

If you like ongoing series, charming southern towns, landscaping, cooking and some fairly hot mansex this is for you

He’s been in love with Mason for months, and now he has an excuse to stay close, and even get off the streets where he’d been living. His mission is simple, to show Mason that Parker is worthy of being considered a friend, and a lover, despite his defect.

Review: Cute Parker Smith is a fox shifter though he can’t shift. He finally sees his way to get closer to Mason, the man he’s been in love with for a while, when he saves his life and enacts the year worth of servitude owed to him by Mason. Sexy Mason Young is an Alpha wolf that is a chef. One day, not paying attention to his surroundings he is saved by a cute fox shifter. As the two get to know one another, better they each struggle with their growing feelings.

Cute story with a lot of drama and misunderstandings. I liked how Mason tried to fight his feelings for Parker. I also liked that after a while Parker started feeling as if he was taking advantage of Mason and tried to make things right. Hot sex between the two all throughout.

Great read.

Review: Botanist Henri Muller who badly scarred in a fire working on his thesis about flowers only to discover that his time is running out on his research. He learns from his assistant that there is a recluse man who grows the flowers he needs to finish his research. Ambrose is the lonely vampire who grows flowers in his greenhouse. Upon meeting Henri, he longs for the one thing that he’s never had, a mate.

Wonderfully written story. The fire was horrifying. The details of the plants in the greenhouse were hauntingly beautiful. This story simply amazed me with its loving yet intense moments. The intimate scenes between Ambrose and Henri were hot enough to scorch the pages.

Fantastic read.

Review: This book was awesome. It had me from the first line. Final Admission is one of those books that once you pick it up you cannot put it down. It’s a real page turner.

Ethan is a rather new employee in the advertising firm of Bingwell, Brock and Bacon. He is very good at what he does and moves up very fast in the firm. He meets James and his first opinion is he agrees with the office gossip and talk that James is a real Dick. In a meeting, James teases him. This makes Ethan not only more pissed at the man but also he can’t get James out from under his skin or out of his fantasies.

James looks confident and flirts with everyone. Some talk as if he is a big player. No one knows that underneath the pretty, confident, airs he is an abused spouse.

This is a very beautifully written story of spousal abuse. I like how the author added a bit of casual humor to soften the angsty storyline. It brings home the fact that no matter the status, or sex of an individual, abuse is real. I also liked that this wasn’t a love at first sight or insta love story. This relationship builds from co-workers, to friendship to more. I am also glad the author made the office a mixed sex office and not everyone in the story is gay. It had a very realistic vibe.
If you want to read a fabulous story of dealing with change of a lover, spousal abuse and recovery, this is a great one to read. I will definitely be reading more Sue Brown.

If you like office romance, friends to lovers, sexy lawyers, Spousal abuse, recovery, love, angst, loving relatives, and some pretty hot mansex this is definitely for you.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Charles McLaughlin is a handsome half human, half werewolf, psychic professor who is also blind. He is asked to help protect his father’s straight werewolf pack at the peace talks. He learns that Luis Delgado, his former one nightstand will be attending as well.

Luis Delgaldo is a hot vampire psychic, that eats emotions instead of blood to survive, is part of a group called Searchlight. His job is to help protect the LGBT werewolves at the peace talks. He shocked to learn that Charles would be at the peace talks.

Charles and Luis have to figure out who is intent on disrupting the peace summit and causing harm to the werewolves, they deem polluted. Loved the details surrounding Luis and Charles psychic abilities. The description of the church and things that dwell in the walls were spooky. The sex sex between Luis and Charles was intense and hot. Fascinating book with mystery, danger, and action all throughout. All in all, it was a great read.

I would suggest reading the first series Dragon in Training before reading this one, as there were two events, that I found out are in the first series, mentioned throughout the first one hundred pages that confused me, as this is the first book I’ve read by this author.

Reviewer: Tootsie

Review: CAGED by Bey Deckard will leave you breathless and wondering what just happened. The first word that came to me when I finished this was simply WOW! I have no reservations in stating that this was one of the best books I have read this year. Being a reviewer, and overall lover of reading, I have read many this year already. Many that I have had a strong connection too. Caged is in a category of its own.

Bey Deckard is a new author, not only to me, but this is his first published novel. What a gift and talent this author possesses to write a novel of this calibre. The research he must have taken speaks highly of his devotion in capturing this story to the fullest. The details and descriptions in his novel are mind-boggling. The language transcribed is perfect for this setting and is staggering how quickly you will succumb to understand its meaning. A few authors come to mind when I think about being placed in the setting that I am reading. Bey has taken that to a new level.

Not only are you in the story witnessing the events, you are no longer present in your real life world. When you read CAGED for yourself be sure to have the time to give it the attention and dedication it demands from you. You will be doing a disservice to yourself if you don’t.

This is historical novel with pirates on the open sea. In addition, there is a sense of dark erotica always in the background waiting to make its move. I’ve read many posts where people say, “I don’t like historical, nor will I read it, ever.” To me, that is really sad that readers are not willing to open their imagination and give historical a try. How unfortunate they will never know the vast joy you will evoke from such a tale.

Yeah, some things are hard to understand. Some words are hard to translate, therefore, pulling you from the story. But if you give it a chance, I believe, you will soon be reading the words as if it is your own language. If you allow yourself to delve inside the story, the words will give you their meanings. Bey Deckard has created three, very intense, powerful, engaging, extremely sexy, intelligent, (hmm, looks as though I could go on and on) men who need each other more than they ever realize.

Jon, a young man is his early twenties, has spent his life under the dictation of his evil stepfather. After losing his mother, the only person to ever show him love, at the early age of four, Jon was never touched, hugged, nor loved by anyone, again. He has a special gift, probably the only thing that keeps his stepfather from ridding himself of Jon. He has the gift of empathy. He has always been curious to the actions and demeanour of others. He can watch someone, listen to them, mimic their behaviour, and tell if that person is lying or telling the truth. A gift his stepfather uses relentlessly against him by making him interview prisoners.

Jon’s stepfather is a lawman and he uses his power and position against Jon, daily. His whole life is about to change, unbeknownst to Jon, when he is kidnapped by a pirates and cast out into the open seas. Will he sink or swim? One look at the captain and Jon is overcome with feelings he doesn’t understand.

And the first mate, Tom, who has muscles galore and laughs at everything. But, why does he have whip marks covering his entire back? Jon doesn’t understand any of this, but soon he will. Pained by his traitorous thoughts and feelings yet to be explored, Jon will no longer be a boy of doubt but a man of fortitude and wisdom.

Captain Baltsaros and Tom are hard-headed, hard skinned, seasoned pirates who would kill you instantly and never bat an eye. These two have a lot of history together. A history they keep close to the vest and share very little of. Jon finds himself completely and whole-heartedly fascinated by both men.

He wonders what it would be like to participate in some of the late night encounters he hears from across the room. Sometimes he hears noises that sound as though they are in pain. Other times he is sure the sounds he hears are brought about by pleasure. It is very titillating for Jon as he lies quietly in the dark listening. To be a part of something, to be wanted, caressed and cherished are things he knows little about. Soon, very soon, he will know first-hand how it feels to be in the clutches of the Captain.

A position he realizes, very quickly, he wants. Being an empath, he knows he can’t trust either one. That doesn’t deter him when he finds himself under the hands and strokes of the Captain and his first mate. Jon is enthralled by both men, captivated by their strength and honed bodies. How far will he go in order to please the Captain?

Tom was a prisoner and subjected to pain and torment for many years. Rescued by the Captain and now his first mate, Tom still has nightmares and an evil streak that has no conscience. There will be times, as you read, that Tom’s pain is so poignant and gut wrenching that you may stumble through this journey.

He is at his most beautiful when he exposes his inner self to the Captain and his pleasures. You will be a witness to his turmoil, his volatile behaviour, but you quickly find yourself drawn to this man who carries so much pain and he wears the proof on his back. You will be a cheerleader for Tom hoping against hope that he can find his happy ever after. His laugh is contagious and even though is heart is damaged he carries his wants and desires like an open book.

Captain Baltsaros is an evil man to anyone who cares to look. But beyond his tough exterior, is a man who loves passionately. By way of light touches and forceful kisses, he enraptures his captive and forms a bond that scares him to his core. Their journey across the wild and open seas will have you captivated and entrenched in their world so deeply. The ending is upon you before you are ready. There is always an undercurrent that will have your own emotions brought to the forefront of this story.

Never knowing from one minute to the next what is in store for the ship and crew will have you on the edge of your seat. The secrets that have been long hidden will come out and play. As each secret is exposed your own sensibilities will keep throwing you back into confusion realizing things are never as they appear.

Bey Deckard has written a long and eventful novel that will bring you to your knees as you uncover secret after secret. You will feel exposed and vulnerable as you sit back and witness the pain and turmoil these amazing characters incur. The author has used many vivid descriptions that will drawl you in and hold you hostage, as well, as you travel across the sea. You will experience their turmoil as your own feelings ricochet from one character to the next.

This story is alive and the emotions so palpable that you will have just cause to take a break or two as you live through them. The sex between the three men is oftentimes dangerous and rough. The pleasure experienced, however, will leave you with a magnitude of feelings you have to rationalize for yourself. The character growth that the MC’s go through will leave you astonished. The crew members aboard the ship are like a beating heart that keeps it going strong. Being under duress will only strengthen the crew and you will see them at their finest.

I consider Bey Deckard a masterful storyteller who has given us words on a page that will forever be embedded in my heart. Coming soon is the sequel to Caged, titled Sacrificed, which has left me with jitters and nervous energy contemplating its content. This is not JUST a historical, not JUST a story of pirates and a crew. This is a masterpiece brought about by men with so much wisdom and experience and so much passion that the open seas is the only place large enough to let it breathe and unfold.

Regardless, the open sea has nothing on the turbulent feelings you will encounter. Amazing, amazing story that deserves an audience to celebrate, in my opinion, an award-winning debut. Kudos to Bey Deckard and his incredible gift of the written word, and for so graciously sharing it with us.

To win Peter’s love, Donny believes that he can change, that he can learn to be the man who Peter deserves.

Review: Donny Kirkpatrick is the handsome son a rich man who cuts him off financially after coming out to his father. He starts a downhill spiral due to his father’s reaction, by drinking and having sex with strangers. Meeting sexy Officer Peter Parker changes his life. He struggles with himself determined to turn his life around for the better with the help of Peter’s brother, Dan.

Officer Peter Parker is the sexy cop who takes Donny home instead of arresting him and offers him a place to stay for the time being. Peter is a good man who tries his best to help those in need. Peter starts to have feelings for Donny.

Very emotional story. I liked how Donny, even though he thought so little about himself, was determined to change the way he was. Peter and Dan were always there for him when he needed them till he could stand on his own two feet. The intimate scenes between Peter and Donny were hot.

Blurb: Mackey’s fragile recovery from his bout with self-destruction is complicated even further by his feelings for Trav—and Trav’s feelings back. Trav is older, and he should know better, but now that Mackey is drug-free and conquering his demons, all he can see is the stunning, brilliant man who existed under the stain of pain and excess.

Trav and Mackey struggle to find a balance between Mackey’s recovery and their growing attraction. Trav decides to make a rare leap of faith—but can Mackey find enough faith in himself to make it through life in the spotlight and a visit to the past that almost destroyed him?

Purchase Link: http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=5570

Review: I believe this installment in this serial is what one would call, the calm before the storm.

Mackey has made it out of rehab and is finally back home with his family, and Trav. Though Trav is wary of entering into a relationship with the younger and volatile musician, the attraction they have to each other will not be denied. Trav concedes that he will try to be more than friends and manager for Mackey, but they are going to take it slow. Trav courts Mackey and shows him that there is more to life than sex, drugs and rock & roll. There is love, tenderness, passion and control.

Sad news from home almost sends Mackey into a tailspin, but Trav is there by his side, steadfast and strong, helping Mackey come to terms with it in his own way. But there is something inside of Mackey that is slightly broken, a piece of his soul that can only be tamed with touch of another man. He can see the truth in what Trav is saying that they need to date and be boyfriends for a while before they throw sex into the mix, especially with Mackey still being raw from rehab.

But there is a thirst deep down inside Mackey that can only be quenched with Trav taking every part of him and making him his, completely.

Compared to the other parts of this saga to date, this was a very timid installment. It was nice for a change though, to see Mackey being loved and cherished by Trav. The inner workings of their relationship are quite different and I always wonder how it will play out on paper. Trav is obviously Mackey’s strength, and it was a joy to see him lose that control he keeps such a tight hold on for a change. I fear though, that there are going to be surmountable roadblocks ahead for these two, which is just how Lane rolls.

I’m also loving the ‘bonus scenes’ that come with each part of the serial. With each one we get a deeper look into the mindset of certain secondary characters, this time around it was from Blake’s POV. Oh boy, now that could be a juicy storyline indeed! Can’t say more, you’ll have to grab a copy and read for yourself. I have to say that I love this hard-core story, and I look forward to the next part each week. If you haven’t read any yet, definitely get caught up, but start with part 1.
