Review: This is another example of Dreamspinner Press’s eye for excellently written romance. And with Sue Brown’s excellent storyline, there is no way this is book is a disappointment.

When Frankie gets broken up with, he goes through a small stage of depression. He figures the only way to get over being broken up with is to devour himself in liquor. It is amazing how Sue Brown knows how to write the perfect characters. The way Frankie and Al interact and go about their daily lives is purely entertaining and then some.

The story is so interesting, fast paced, and strong. I love how Frankie and Al interact and how their interaction with each other fuels the story, keeping it fresh and interesting. And the more I read into it, the more addicted I became. Overall, it is fast paced, interesting, and well worth the money put forth to it. Go out and get it today.

Blurb: Griffen Rodgers has a fulfilling career he loves and a partnership with a man who makes him happy. Still, despite a life most people only dream of, Griffin is convinced that monogamy is for fools and it’s forced his lover of three years, Leandro, to question their commitment.

A sexy new boss, Rykar Sloan, arrives on the job and things get a little more complicated for Griffen. Will Griffin’s attraction to the new boss lead him down a road of temptation and regret, or will it reinforce his bond with Leandro, the man he may just want to spend the rest of his life with?
Be Warned: m/m sex, multiple partners

Review: Griffen is content with his life. He has his dream job, a decent place to live and a hot sexy man whenever he needs a date or a lay. He and Leandro have been seeing each other for a few years. Griffen likes Leandro and really enjoys the sex and likes the fact he has a sex buddy whenever he needs one without going to bars or searching for hook-ups. Griffen doesn’t want a relationship though he works so hard he hasn’t realized he has only been seeing Leandro.

Ryker, Griffen’s new boss, is extremely hot and sexy and makes no bones that he wants Griffen. Griffen is enticed by the new boss but Leandro is acting strange lately. Ryker makes some changes at work for the better, but will Ryker be more than Griffen’s new boss?

This is a good short story. Its fast- paced, complete, doesn’t have a rushed feel and is very hot and sexy. I will say I did not like Griffen. I found him very self-centred and inconsiderate of others feelings. Well, Leandro’s feelings. I did love Leandro a lot though. I also will say I loved the ending of this story. The author had me fooled for a bit, but left I’m happy and panting. Great job! I will be looking for more stories by S. C Wayne.

I recommend this story to anyone looking for a short fast read to fill in an hour or so, hot sexy men and satisfying ending. Of course some hot mansex that isn’t over explicit.

 

Mind Magic by Poppy Dennison ~ Audiobook

Reviewer: Tams
Blurb: Magical species must never mix. According to the rules, Simon Osborne should ignore the children’s cries for help. After all, they’re werewolf cubs, and he’s an apprentice mage. But for once in his life, Simon breaks the rules and rescues the cubs, saving them from a demon intent on draining them of their magic.

Of course, all actions have consequences, and Simon’s bold move earns him the displeasure of his peers and the attention of the cubs’ alpha, a man named Gray Townsend.

The last thing Gray needs is a mage in his life, but Simon did save his son. Since Simon is now a friend of the pack, Gray doesn’t have much choice about it—or the forbidden attraction that goes along with it. Unfortunately, for the alpha, he needs Simon’s help to track down the demon behind the kidnappings—before it strikes again. Simon and Gray must join forces to protect the pack, even as they struggle to resist the temptation that threatens to destroy them both.

Review: Simon is a Mage apprentice in a world where Vampires, Werewolves, Demons and Mages exist. They just don’t coexist very well.

He breaks their code of remaining indifferent when it comes to a magic outside of his own when he rescues several young werewolf cubs that have been kidnapped by a demon who is draining their magic, and subsequently killing them in the process. Simon is not only a very talented Mage. He is generally a decent, kindhearted person. He’s been held back from his gift by his teacher unknowingly, who has actually been draining his magic instead of helping him develop it.

Simon is instantly drawn to the Alpha of the pack, when he brings their cubs home. Tension runs high, as I said, the races don’t mix, but Garen the Alpha’s son has named Simon a friend of the pack. The attraction to the two men share is just one obstacle they will have to face. Garen and Simon are now connected somehow, mentally. So when the demon comes back to prey on the one that got away, Garen reaches out to Simon. When Gray and Simon are brought back together when Simon comes to help Garen, the mutual attraction is more than they can fight. But Simon refuses to be mated to Gray just for his packs protection.

I absolutely loved the concept behind this story. There are three types of magic, a triad if you will. The Mages, Mind Magic. The Wolves, Body Magic. And the Vampires, Soul Magic. Problems in the past have caused the three races to pull apart from each other and demand that their people live their lives separately, but The High Moon pack along with Simon and his grandfather will challenge this dusty belief.

There was a lot happening throughout this book, but the author managed to keep it all cohesive and contained, I never lost interest or got confused. The different types of magic and creatures and their archaic ways of thinking was intriguing. And then to have the new breed of the races shown in Gray and Simon that fall in love and challenge these “rules” was refreshing and only strengthened the storyline. The narration as well was good and kept my attention from start to finish. It’s always nice to have a narrator that tells the story and doesn’t just read it, subtle nuances and tone changes are key and Davis definitely conveyed those well throughout.

I’m excited to see where this series goes with the addition of Simon’s “grandfather” and the still looming threat of the demon in their midst. Fantastic listen, highly recommend it to fans of the paranormal genre.

Binding Spell by Jay Di Meo

Blurb: Mador, a fallen angel turned demon and slave to a prince of Hell, never thought he’d lose his heart to a mortal – again.

Summoned and made flesh by Jay, a young man in trouble and in a bind due to a deal he made with a powerful demon.

Mador has to fight his mistrust and fear to finally find redemption and perhaps a second chance at love.
Warning: This is an m/m erotic romance – there is swearing, nudity, sex and some intense violence scenes.

Purchase Link: http://www.amazon.com/Binding-Spell-Jay-Di-Meo-ebook/dp/B00IHMTF8Q

Review: Short, Sexy, and Steamy… why yes, those are my three favourite colors!

Mador is a fallen angel who has been condemned to torture as the lover of a Prince of Hell. He has only ever loved one person, a human. And now he suffers an eternity of abuse and humiliation at the hands of his captor, never to be loved or wanted by anyone again. His hell is eternal. Or is it?

Jay is a human who has made a deal with a demon, a demon that wants Mador but is not able to get his slimy talons on him because his captor keeps him close. When Jay summons Mador via a binding spell, the fun really begins. The attraction between the fallen angel and the human man is immediate, intense and explosive. In the matter of a few hours, the two turn each other upside down and inside out. But the demon that wants Mador is getting closer and time is running out.

WOW! Porn on paper, not kidding. But just like every other book that Di Meo has penned, there is a back story established and woven into the oh-so-hot sex, which is peppered throughout the book. There is this scene, on a chair, in front of the mirror… I’m fanning myself just remembering. This sexy little short, hot, evil story is well worth the price.

Blurb: Argon is the new master of the body mods shop at the rebuilt Velvet Glove and he needs an apprentice. He’s hoping for someone who will not only want to learn how to pierce, tattoo, scar and brand, but who is interested in being his submissive as well.
Brother Yves arrives at the body mods shop on a mission from the clerics of Mount Bell. The cloister has been his only home and he is totally innocent. Scared and far away from home, he nonetheless forges forward and presents himself to Master Argon, insisting that he is destined to be with the man.

Are Argon and Yves too different to find common ground, or are they destined to be together forever?

Review: I found this novella to be intriguing. A fresh take on something new and one hell of a read. I cannot ever feel disappointed when it comes to the new books Sean Michael brings about.

When Argon comes onto the page, he is one of those inconsiderate people but he is looking for someone who will help take care of things with him. And he knows he has to find someone and soon. When Brother Yves finds himself entering into the shop for something but it is for the best. He is on a mission. When they cross paths, it turns out to be quite a spark going on between the two of them. The more they interact the more interested in each other they become. Do they become a couple? You’ll have to read and find out.

This novella is fresh, interesting and then some. I would highly recommend it to those that want to read something new and fantastic. And I wouldn’t hesitate to have someone get it if they asked. I feel it is well worth recommending forward.

Blurb: Let’s introduce you to the alpha.

Eamon has lost everything in his life. It’s not until his family forces him to go and close out his partner’s estate, that he meets a group of men who change his life. One in particular who opens his heart to love again.
Only there’s something not quite right here. Once Eamon realizes what it is, will he still be willing to stay?

Review: This is book four in this series and it needs to be read in order. Not only to give you an introduction on the characters but because it is a pretty good series that you don’t want to miss. I liked this story. It has such wonderful guys and a pretty cool story line that makes it come together. However, the only problem I had with it, was this particular book was just a tad bit harder to follow. It did catch my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end.

Eamon has lost the one man he loved for over ten years and he wasn’t too sure what to do from there on out. His family forces him to take a vacation and check out his partner’s estate that is his now. What made him angry was the fact that it was hidden from him. With no secrets, this should not have been such a surprise. What was even a bigger surprise was the group of men he finds there. One that makes him set up and notices. He realizes when one door closes another one opens.

Chris would make anyone dream that is for sure. He is not only sexy but also sweet as hell. He wants Eamon and more than just a one-night stand. There were just some things that they hadn’t talked about and Eamon did not know about. The two major ones were that Chris was a shifter and Eamon was his mate.

It is a pretty good story all the way around and I did love the BDSM parts to it. The domination of another is quite a turn on in some worlds. I cannot say what it is like to lose someone but I can understand the pain. I like how Chris and Eamon can make it all work. I even love his reaction when he finds out that Chris is a werewolf. Pretty cool reaction even though at the time there were lots of questions. I would recommend this story to anyone who loves werewolves, two hot and sexy men, and amazing sex.

Blurb: When the world is on the line, will love be enough to save them all?

Farren Azar came to college to get his degree. However, he knew he couldn’t let anyone know about his djinn blood. The djinn had been exiled to a different plane, and if his heritage was discovered, he could be banished too. When a djinn and a fire god become involved in his life, he has to figure how to handle two powerful entities without losing himself.

Dan Stewartson knew Farren was the one. A glance between them had him hooked. When strange fires begin popping up around campus and fingers are pointed at Farren, Dan refuses to believe his lover could be responsible. Will he be able to save Farren’s reputation, or will secrets come between them and wreck their budding romance?

This is book three in the A Wizard’s Touch series. See the full series listing here

Review: This is book three in this series and they should be read in order. It makes it easier to understand what is going on and who everyone is. Farren has djinn blood and he fears what would happen when everyone finds out. The djinn could be either good or evil, but they had been banished to another plane. And Farren knew that if people found out he would be banished too. He is afraid of what will happen to his boyfriend Dan once the knowledge is found out. He didn’t want to lose his mate. He is also afraid that he will lose control over his powers and burn Dan.

When a djinn visits him, he is lost in what to do about it, but when a fire god shows up, he is really lost. He has to find away to handle them and not lose himself. Dan however knew that something was going on. He knew from the first glance that Farren was his mate. He would do everything in his power to help him and keep him safe. But when fires start popping up around their campus he gets worried. Everyone is blaming Farren, but Dan knows there is more to it. He just needs to find out what is going on and how to keep his lover safe. There are so many secrets floating around that he is worried about what is going to happen with them both, but his love for Farren is stronger than ever.

I love the mix of danger, love, excitement, and mystery in this story. It just comes together perfectly. You can’t help but love Farren and Dan, although you do want to smack them around a bit. Their friends and family are the ones you will want to smack even harder. It is an amazing story, one that you can just lose yourself into. It captured my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I would recommend reading this story especially if you love the paranormal worlds, wizards, two hot and sexy men and some major passion. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book of this series.

Blurb

The head of Global Pictures Studios, Vincent Franklin, promised Jack Stone that he would take care of Jack’s loyal driver, Juan. But for a dominant man like Vincent, Juan’s natural submissiveness causes him to long for much more from the shy young man.

Juan is devastated when his only friend, film star Jack Stone, leaves Hollywood for good. Lonely most of his life, the shy young man has dreamt of love, only to have his heart broken repeatedly. Before he left, Jack made certain that Juan would be taken care of by asking his ex-boss, studio chief Vincent Franklin, to hire him on.

Vincent Franklin is an incredibly controlled and meticulous man. Not given to emotional outbursts and unnecessary flights of fancy, his temperament is ideal for the stressful and demanding job as head of Global Pictures Studio. He leads a carefully concealed private life, his only social outlet being the sadomasochism club to which he belongs. When Jack introduces him to his handsome chauffeur Juan, he is struck by how naturally submissive Juan is. He wonders…

Soon, Juan is falling for the elegant, older man that is his new boss. He’s also thrilled when Vincent asks him to be his personal valet. But there are things that Vincent demands of a lover that Juan knows nothing about. Things that could make him run away from the man who would do anything to protect and care for him.

Appearances, can be deceiving.Raven and Tanis are trying very hard to merge their vastly different lifestyles, but Tanis’ issues with his own past could prove to be more than their fragile relationship can handle. Is their love for each other strong enough to weather the oncoming storm?

Aiya and Sawyer have fought hard to be together in a world where Opposite relationships are generally forbidden. Yet, they are still forced to keep their relationship a secret while they are outside the walls of House Gaeland.

Everyone assumes that the only threat lies outside their walls, the group of rebels led by Cillian. But something is happening within House Gaeland, something that hasn’t happened since GWI. And with all the attention focused on that, their guard is down. An evil that was under their nose all along strikes, and someone will make the ultimate sacrifice to save another.

Appearances is the second book in the Opposites series, the series should be read in order.

** Warning, Opposites is an Adult Dystopian majorly M/M series that contains explicit sexual content and relationships between gay, straight and lesbian couples. **

Appearances is tentatively scheduled for a summer 2014 release. A HUGE thank you to my cover artist and graphic designer, T.L. Shreffler of Runaway Book Designs. You are AhMazing girl!!
