Blurb: Since Tyler Hayward was three years old, he has been pushed into sports. When he showed promise in baseball, it became his life. When he hit the pros, it became all about his image. He even committed the ultimate betrayal of the one he loved to present himself as “normal.”

Until the night it all became too much and he had to break away or end it all. But his freedom is short-lived as life throws him an another curve when a car runs a red light and he is forced to fight for everything he has ever known.

Graham Conner has been watching Tyler for the last couple of weeks and has decided that there’s more to the baseball player than what the tabloids report. Taking him home to his ranch, the kinky cowboy shows Tyler that baseball isn’t everything life has to offer. And Tyler finds he loves every minute of it.

Review: This is book one in this series and they should be read in order. This was an amazing story. Each book focuses on a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters. For me it helps me from not really knowing what the story is really about and helps me to understand where each one comes from. It also helps me to understand why they act the way they do. I love Bellann’s stories, they have such wonderful characters, great story lines, and the words just flow off the pages.

Tyler has been pushed into baseball and other sports by his mother since he was three years old. He was gay but his mother pushed him into a relationship with a woman. Even went so far as to state to everyone that they were going to get married. The problem was he wasn’t interested at all in women. However, he went with it and kept on going. That is until one night he had enough and told them so. It was the night he lost his dream. He ended up getting badly hurt in a car accident. His hand, elbow, and shoulder were damaged. Although they could be fixed, it would not be enough to be able to play pro-baseball.

He had been sitting at the pond staring at his favorite duck when he sees the man he was attracted to. That is all Tyler did, he just stared at him. However, Graham took it all out of his hands. He approaches him and asked to sit down. He lets him know that he does in fact know who he is, but that none of that matters. He is deeply attracted to this gorgeous man. Tyler wants Graham enough to change his dream to surround this sexy man of his. A man that he wants more than anything.

Graham had noticed Tyler before the pond, in fact he had went to the pond to watch him. However, he knew it was time to seek out the man. He was at a point in his life where he wanted a partner for life, to settle down on his ranch and enjoy each other. Now he had to get Tyler to feel safe enough to tell him everything that had happened. He knew a lot about him, but he also knew that Tyler hid some things back. He got Tyler interested in ranching and he knew that at time Tyler would indeed find happiness.

When these two men hook up you can feel the heat and see the passion. I love this book and cannot wait to get my hands on book two. It caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I love the way they just mix together. I also love the way Graham is the alpha in this relationship but he is willing to switch during sex. It is just amazing the tenderness and love you can feel with these two men. I loved it.

Blurb: Two men. One wants to earn the treasure. The other wants to prove what treasure really is.

Thom McDoffrey is shocked when he’s waylaid outside camp by Kaiser, the strange warrior he’d fought a few nights before. He listens as Kaiser speaks of treasure, adventure, and freedom. Being the youngest son of a known thief, Thom has worked diligently to live honorably, choosing the hard life of a mercenary in Chieftain Goth’s employ. This, however, is an opportunity too good to pass up. Especially when Kaiser promises that, the treasure would be freely given, because the owner needs a boon. Giving in to temptation, Thom agrees.

Upon arriving in Karstelle Valley, Thom discovers that he is the boon…Kaiser completing the favor of bringing a human to a dragon. Feeling betrayed, Thom flees. When the dragon tracks him down, will Thom give in to curiosity, see why the dragon wants him, or keep running?

Review: This is book three in this series and they should be read in order. Each story has some of the characters in prior books and tells you about their story. The way they live their lives, the reason they do some of the things they do and what makes them they way they are. Thom and Kaiser had fought and when Thom lost his Chieftain punished by whipping him. He had no place to go and no one to go to. His mother had passed and his father had been hung for being a thief. His own brothers were in the same frame of mine as his father. So when Kaiser had come back two days later he had an offer that Thom could not say no to.

What he had not expected was Kaiser taking him to meet Eldor Glarzy. However, to his shock Glarzy was a dragon shifter. He of course freaked out and ran, but Glarzy brought him back. Told him what life could be like. He is Glarzy’s asda. His mate for life. Once they bound if either should die then the other would follow. One night he was sent back to their nest to check for intruders while Glarzy met with other Eldors. What he had not expected was for his brothers to find him.

Glarzy came back to find his mate with his brothers. Thom’s brothers were trying to steal his gems. At first, he thought Thom was in on it, but realized he was foolish. His asda was trying to protect his home. He knew he had to protect his mate. He would do everything in his power to protect the man he had fallen in love with. Even if it meant Thom hating him for it. What he had not realized was Thom loves him just as much as he loves him.

I love this story, although the way they talk drives me nuts. It has characters that mix well together. I love the way they are with each other, so protective and loving. I would recommend reading this story if you want to find sexy shifters, gorgeous asda’s, excitement, dragons, adventure and a touch of danger. It has all that and so much more. It caught my attention from the moment I opened the story and kept it all the way to the end. I can’t wait to get my hands on the next book. I love Charlie’s books and her gift at telling a story.

A full story of gay love in the rough Texas setting. It gets your attention and keeps it while you dive deep into the forbidden love between two men. I would highly recommend this to anyone that likes to see just how far love goes and knows no boundaries. – Jimmy R Rushing

Who can resist a hot cowboy – or two? I must admit that I have a hard time saying no and Texas Rough, the first in a trilogy of stories, didn’t disappoint. – Serena Yates Rainbow Book Reviews

Review: Overall, this is a fabulous series filled with sexy cowboys, Texas rangers, small town doctors, drama, mystery suspense and hot mansex!
Life at Crazy Hills has become crazier, and the cowboys are misbehaving. Their worlds are turned upside down, as lust leads them to places they never thought they would go.
If you like cowboys, lawmen doctors, foursomes, super- hot sex, and loving relationships this is for you!
I left a little blurb and review for each individual book below:
Texas Rough Book 1: Lane Daniels loves his job, working as a foreman on the south Texas ranch gives him the type of satisfaction he’s 13649355always craved, but the owner of Crazy Hills ranch, Gresh Hamilton Miller the third, has woven his way under Lane’s skin, leaving Lane crazy for the man’s touch. But doing the boss is out of the question. Gresh wants more from Lane than his ability to handle livestock. He wants it all.
Lane won’t give him the time of day so he forces the issue, setting up a date that Lane believes to be a business meeting. Alone together, Lane and Gresh ignite in a flash of passion. Just when it feels like there could be something more between them, the new doctor in town, Riley, sets his sights on Lane. Riley chases hard after him, insinuating himself in Lane’s life, highlighting Gresh’s faults. But, Gresh won’t give up without a fight. Will Lane and Gresh be able to survive the intrusion, or will Riley be the one walking away with Lane’s heart? Texas Rough is the first book in Sara York’s Texas Soul series. Texas Hard and Texas Twist are next in line. Get ready to get your cowboy on and go for a rough ride.

My Review: Lane Daniels is a very good ranch foreman. Gresh Hamilton Miller the third the owner of the ranch thinks he is a lot more that a great employee. Gresh wants Lane and will stop at nothing to have him. He finally sets up a business meeting to trap Lane into a date. Lane has had a crush on Gresh since they first met two years ago but assumes him as straight and no one knows Lane is gay. He wants to keep it that way. But, he wants Gresh so bad and Gresh wants Lane and insinuates him into his life at the ranch. Will Gresh succeed in winning the love of Lane?
But wait! There’s another twist! There is a new doctor in town and he has set his sights on Lane. He will do anything to see that Lane isn’t hurt by Gresh. Will Lane choose Gresh or the Doctor? What will Gresh’s father do when he finds out Gresh is gay? Will he disown him? Will Lane lose his job at the ranch?
I’m not going to tell you. You will have to read the book. Its good and you won’t want to put it down once you start.
I thought this book was great. This book got me hooked on hot, sexy cowboys! I loved this one and will definitely be buying the series. I loved the characters and it had a strong story line with a little suspense. I loved the love story though I found it a bit gushy and syrupy, but then again I like sweet and sensuous love stories, so it didn’t really bother me.

Recommendations: If you like a good modern day western, hot cowboys, horses, sexy doctors, a great sweet romance, a compelling story and some sensuous but hot sex…

15826447Texas Hard Book #2: Spurned by his heart’s desire, Riley’s aching for a fight, and he finds one with Connor, a sexy Texas lawman. Attraction fires between them, but Riley walks away, ignoring the lust between he and Connor…Until weeks later he’s caught trespassing on Connor’s new property–Naked.

Connor’s tempted to arrest the audacious naked man in his watering hole until he realizes its Riley. Lust muddles Connor’s logic and soon he finds himself on a path rife with temptations. Passion twists Connor inside out leading him to share one of his deepest secrets. Still Riley’s hiding something and the lack of mutual trust may end their relationship.

Then there’s the Lane factor. Riley’s ex leaves Connor feeling threatened. Riley swears it’s over, but something doesn’t sit right and Connor needs resolve. Coming to terms with their attraction means submitting to the fears haunting Connor and Riley before they can grasp the love that brought them together.

My Review: Riley is leaving Lane and Gresh’s commitment ceremony, his emotions raw. He runs upon an accident and stops to help being a doctor. He has a confrontation with the lawman there, not only does he want to hit him, but to …well other things to him too. A month or so later Riley is taking a dip in the pond next to his property when a man confronts him. It is Connor the Texas Ranger; he hasn’t been quite able to get off his mind. Things lead from confrontation again to riley getting to… well what he wanted the last time. Things move very fast for both men but both schedules and pasts get in the way. Are Riley and Conner a match made in heaven? Are their busy jobs too much for a relationship? What about Lane and his hold on Riley? Who is Erick? Believe me if you like twists, turns, and super-hot mansex you will want to buy this and find out!

I am such a big fan of Sara York and especially this Texas Soul Series. I haven’t been reading too many westerns until this, now I am so hooked. I love the modern day setting, with realistic modern cowboys. This book was even better than the first of the series, and I couldn’t have imagined that happening, as the first was awesome.
Omg this was so fast paced so many twists and turns, all the characters these and the ones from the first book are so wonderful and exciting. There is nothing else I can say, except how good this book is. It made me laugh, it made me smile, it made me gasp, made me say Oh My gosh, so many times!! I am on pins and needles for the third, fourth and hope there’s more!

Recommendations: I highly recommend this book to everyone that loves a good M/M romance. Especially if you like, cowboys, Texas Rangers (law enforcement not the ball team), twists and turns, interracial coupling, super, super down and dirty mansex. Did I say hot cowboys and hot mansex?

Texas Twist: Book #3 For Erick McTavish, meeting the handsome young cowboy, Sterling White, is the first s16029579ign he may be able to put the pain and the flashbacks from his brutal abduction behind him for good. Too bad Sterling doesn’t seem to return those feelings.

Determined to remain straight, Sterling hates the walking, talking temptation that is Erick, yet he can’t seem to stop his desire to experience his first kiss with a man, but not just any man, only Erick will do. The tattered remains of Sterling’s denial are stripped away when fate steps in and wickedly hot passion ignites between the pair, leaving Sterling unable to imagine a life without Erick.

Meanwhile, the bonds of friendship between Gresh, Connor, Lane, and Riley are tested when dark desire leads them down a dangerous path twisting their relationship to the max, leaving all four men wondering if any relationship is possible after betrayal.

My Review: Erick has just recently been rescued from terrorists. He had been held for 6 months brutally beaten and tortured. His work partner and the man he had a crush on rescued him. When he got rescued, he found that Conner had met someone and fell in love. Conner and Riley get him a job with Lane and Gresh at Crazy Hills Ranch.

Meanwhile Lane and Riley though both very much in love with their life partner/ husbands yet still have unfinished business. Gresh finds Conner very enticing and can’t stifle that urge. In Houston on a meeting Gresh finds out Conner is working there on a case. They have some friendly dinners and in a twist share a short kiss. Lane is very upset and turns to Riley. But he realizes no matter what he feels for Riley Gresh is the one for him.
Back to Erick at the ranch. He meets a young cowboy Sterling but it seems Sterling hates him. Or does he?
Wow Wow Wow! This book was smoking hot. It is book three of the Texas Soul Series but it stands alone fine. I do recommend you read the first two they are awesome but this one was even better. WOW. Once you start, you will not want to put it down. And, the name is spot on. Twists all over. More twists than a twizzler! It’s full of hot passionate mansex, great storylines, plenty of action and wow the sex and twists. Oh, I already said that. But, WOW!

Recommendations: I highly recommend this book to everyone that loves M/M action. Also if ya like Texas rangers, hot sexy rich businessmen, Cowboys, horses, Loving sexy D/s relationships, Sweet loving relationships, Ménage… great story lines, and lots of twists and super-hot mansex(lots of it).. You must read this. I also recommend you read Texas Hard ,Texas Rough first but you don’t have to but I promise if you read this one you will want to go back and read them all.. Sara York is amazing!

16146895Texas Branded Book 4: Revenge might have been what drove Jung-Hwa Gangjeon, known as Jump, to Caldwell Texas and Crazy Hills Ranch, but something darker has kept him there. Desire is awakened his first night in town, leaving him questioning everything about his life, his past, and his future.

Finding a sexy young man sleeping on a park bench wasn’t what Bruce Long expected from his night sift as a Deputy Sherriff. But at the first sight of the man, he knew he wanted more than just a name. But getting the skittish Jump to settle enough to accept his love is harder than Bruce ever imagined. Lust and passion spin its web, leaving both Bruce and Jump branded with desire.

My Review: All I can say is Wow! If you haven’t read any of the Texas Soul Series, I suggest you start in order with Texas Rough, though these all stand-alone just fine and once you read one you will want to read them all. I loved the way this one started out with some of the character profiles.
Jump shows up at the Crazy horse ranch to get even with the man he thinks is his biological father. He believes it is Gresh because of a photo he found when he left foster care and got his mother’s belongings. At 18, he is a bitter, angry young man. Bruce Long is the deputy Sherriff and finds Jump sleeping on a bench. He is immediately intrigued.
There is a lot of story in this one. There are so many twists and turns in here, it leaves you reeling! I am such a fangirl of this series. I waited impatiently and wasn’t disappointed. The foursome continues with Lane, Gresh, Riley, and Connor. Wow, can it get hotter?
You won’t want to put it down until you are done as you go for story to story and twist after twist I was left in Awe! Oh and a huge Shocker! I sure can’t wait till spring for the fifth installment.

Texas Desire Book 517374843
Blurb: Gresh is on his deathbed and Lane is swimming in guilt. Will Riley’s comfort and love be too tempting for Lane with Gresh in a coma?

A new cowboy, Kip, has come to town and he’s got his sights set on one of the cowboys, but the man is straight and Kip doesn’t know if he wants to date another closet case. Winning over his new lover and getting him to open up may prove to be too much.

Tragedy strikes the ranch and everyone has to pull together, but can they outwit the crazy stalker that is after Kip and his new beau?

The fifth book in the Texas Soul Series is packed with answers, but a can of worms is opened and can’t be closed. Find out how hot it gets in Texas as Riley pushes Lane for a relationship, leaving Connor wondering if he even mattered to Riley at all.

My Review: (could be spoilers if you haven’t read the first ones you may want to stop) this one does need to be read in order after book 4
Gresh is on his deathbed. Lane’s world has crashed down around him and he has to make decisions. Jump is trying to take care of arrangements and Hamilton’s business. Jamie has stepped in and is trying to run the ranch very shorthanded without, Lane, Gresh, or Jump to help. Kip is a new man that shows up that is an old friend of Gresh’s to help with the ranch and with secrets of his own.
This is the fifth book of the series and each just gets better and better. This one has so much going on but it isn’t overwhelming. Not only is all the above going on but we also have Riley still very much in love with Lane and also thinking now he may have a chance, then Connor dealing with his insecurities knowing he may lose Riley and dealing with his loss with Gresh as well.
Plus Kip’s seemingly straight coworker Jamie, coworker is really putting the make on him if all this isn’t enough we have the mystery that Kip brings plus another tragedy at the ranch. Oh yeah lots of excitement and still plenty of hot mansex. It is sad with the tragedies going on but the new love interests and Lane’s never dying love for Gresh and dilemma of his feelings of Riley pick it up with the sigh-worthiness of it all. And the ending has me on pins and needles, counting the days till the next one!!
Recommendations: If you love modern day westerns, Hot ranch hands, suspense, and super -hot mansex you will love this one.

17837315Texas Legacy Book 6 Again spoiler alert if you haven’t read book 5 (4-6 really need to be read in order since they all had cliffhanger endings.) Connor’s grief threatens to overwhelm him as he turns to the bottle, shoving everyone away. When Mike Jarred bangs on his door, demanding Connor join the living, Connor tells him to piss off. Mike won’t abandon his friend and stays, demanding Connor change. With Mike in his business, Connor has no choice but to get sober. But he can’t stay away from the bottle forever.

Kip fears that Jamie will realize that his trip over to the male side of his bi-sexuality is over and he’ll want a girl. His worst fears are realized when he follows Jamie, finding him at diner with a beautiful woman—worse, when Kip confronts them he realizes the lady is pregnant and she doesn’t hesitate to announce that Jamie is the father.

Lane and Gresh find a surrogate willing to have their baby. All seems great until the surrogate figures out Gresh is too ill to care properly for a child. With their baby lost to them, Lane is depressed. He cheers up only after meeting two orphan boys, wondering if they could become part of his family

MY Review: I thought this was a very dramatic and wonderful end to such a fantastic series. I love how it led into the possibility of something new on the horizon in Colorado.

You sort of get three stories in this one plus a small introduction to a new character giving us hope for the new series coming.
Story 1: is the continuation of Lane and Gresh. After all they have been through their love is as strong and beautiful as ever. Gresh is struggling from his injuries form the accident and Lane is there to support him through it all. They also decide they are ready to begin a new family and want to adopt, then Gresh decides he wants a surrogate and have Lane be the father. Everything goes smoothly until the surrogate sees first-hand how ill Gresh is.
Story 2: Is Conner. This one is heartbreakingly sad. Since Riley’s death, Conner has gone downhill with drinking himself to death quitting his job and holing up in his house. Suicide could be on the horizon f he doesn’t get help soon. (I won’t say much since this could have spoilers if you haven’t read the first five books.) Mike has always loved Connor and won’t stand by and watch him drink himself to death. He hopes he can save Connor and perhaps even have a relationship in the future.
Story 3 is Kip and Jamie from the last book.
Kip is very suspicious of Jamie’s recent actions. Jamie has been going into town a lot and acting secretive. He is afraid that Jamie still wants women since he has just found out he is bisexual. He finds Jamie with a woman in town that is pregnant and telling everyone the baby belongs to Jamie.

So as you see, there is a lot going on and I barely touched it. We also meet Grant, though barely, while Gresh and Lane are in the Bermuda’s on vacation.

I really thought this was a great conclusion with lots of dram tossed in. I would have liked to see more of Grant but I have the feeling I will get my wish.

If you like, cowboys and drama and a great series finale and have read most of this series this book is a must!

If you like a series full of drama, mystery, suspense, broken men, cowboys, secret agents, Texas Rangers, and lots of hot mansex I suggest you read them all!

When he arrives at the Lycan settlement, however, he meets a handsome young man who reminds him with every glance exactly how lonely he’s been for many years. The problem is, the man he’s so entranced by seems to hate him.

Kai has been curious about Lord Ladon all this life. He and the vampire are linked in a way he is reluctant to divulge, but soon Ladon demands an explanation for Kai’s scowls and long glances. When they discover they’re mates, Kai is certain it’s a mistake. His mind says they could never work, but can his body and heart convince him to submit and let the fates give him the happiness that has always been out of his reach?

Review: This is book two and they should be read in order. Each book brings in all the characters that you will see in the future stories that come up. It shows you their world, gives you an insight into their lives, and tells you about what it is like. I love the way their world just draws you in and makes you want to belong there. It is quite different then many vampire and shape-shifter stories. It shows you how they mingle and what they want from their future. Kai has always been interested in Lord Ladon all his life, but he hides a shame that keeps him from allowing others to get close. His and Ladon’s family come from a dark time. He wanted to hate the man whose grandfather were the cause of his families death. He finds himself drawn to the man in a way that confuses him.

Ladon notices Kai all right, the little smirks that drives him insane. He wants the little wolf, now all he has to do is to get him to agree. After a sweet night of hot sex, he realizes that this little wolf is his mate. A mate that keeps running from him at all turns. Kai of course denies it and thinks it is a mistake. He thinks that no one would or could want him. He has a lot to learn about a certain vampire mate.

They have a lot to learn about each other, and Ladon realizes he has a lot of problems in the future, but Kai is not one of them. He has already fallen in love with his mate, now if he could just get him to see that he is very much wanted by not only himself but also those around him. He doesn’t see what is in front of him, till it bites him on the nose.

I loved this book and cannot wait to see what the next one will be like. It caught my attention from the moment I opened the book to the very last word. It gives you characters that mix so well with each other. The story just flows right off the pages. It is as if you are right there along with them. You are going through their troublesome times and seeing the happiness on their faces. You can feel what they are feeling as if it is happening to you. I loved this book and I would recommend reading it. It gives you strong and sexy characters, feisty and quirky mates, excitement, and a bit of danger.

Review: This is part of the Romance on the Go stories. I loved this one better than the last one, because it seems that there is more to it. It had more spice to it.

These two very sexy men have been fighting their attraction for two years. Nick wanted Tayte but did not realize that Tayte felt the same way. Tayte has been in love with his boss for over two years but he had no clue if Nick was even gay.

Nick was attracted to Tayte from the moment he hired him, but he didn’t know if he would stay that way. So he never made a move until two years later. Tayte was working late one night and had not expected Nick was there also. Nor did he expect this sexy man to come on to him. Talk about getting bent over the desk, this was one hot scene. Now all they have to do is figure out how to make it work in and out of the office.

This story had more in it that made it a better story. Although I would love to see how well they do in the future. It was amazing and I was glad to have had a chance to read it. I will be checking out the rest of Tamsin’s stories, although to be truthful I do have most of them. An amazing storyteller that gives you what you want in a story. Action, adventure, lust, sexual heat, sexy men, and a great storyline are just a small bit of what is in this story.

I would recommend reading this story.

Review: This is book two in this series and they should be read in order. This was an amazing story. Each book focuses on a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters. For me it helps me from not really knowing what the story is really about and helps me to understand where each one comes from. It also helps me to understand why they act the way they do. This particular story, even though it is a paranormal and is not real life, actually comes pretty close to what happens sometimes around us. Although not the paranormal part but children that have been held hostage for their uses.

Lucas was a warlock, not just a normal one but with major power behind him. Although at fifteen, he and his parents had not known that. One night his powers had spiked killing his family and burning the home down. Captured and thrown in a rehabilitation camp tore his childhood apart. They were tortured, starved, and taught that they were worthless. He had been there alone until two years prior when they had captured his best friend Charlie. Now they were being rescued, but Lucas wondered if he was worth the sacrifice.

Andor had saved Lucas, even knowing his past and what he had done. He also knew that what had happened were not Lucas’s fault. He had a power that just needs to be tampered down. With help, he could learn to control it. Andor was attracted to Lucas, but he thought he should go slowly. That is until he had seen the mark that symbolized that they were mates. Now that was some heat going on there. The dangers were coming for all of them, but this time it was Lucas’s that needed to save them.

I came across this series by accident and I was surprised by them. It is a wonderful series that has such amazing characters that will have your protective side showing. It breaks my heart to know what Lucas and his friend Charlie had gone through. The fact that had Andor and the others waiting to rescue them, they would have more than likely died.

I loved this story and cannot wait to read the next book. It has everything that I could want in a story. It had sexy men, angst and pain, temperamental young ones, attitudes, excitement and danger in it. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading it and kept it all the way to the end. I love the paranormal world and when it is in a romance story, it just makes it even better. When you have men that are willing to die to protect those that they love, it makes you feel so much more. I would recommend reading this story because it will show you a world that you could lose yourself into. A world that will make you smile, laugh, and even cry a bit.

Review: This story was pretty good. I love the paranormal world and when you put not just two men but three men then I am definitely sold. At first, I thought they were doing the hunt to capture, but it didn’t take long to realize that it is more than that. Greg had been abducted from earth to participate in a run for his life manhunt. He kept his eye on both of the aliens but soon he was lusting hard after him.

Taran is a reptilian alien. He resembles humans in some way. He had run the race once before but was injured, now he was stronger and was focusing on the win. However, he was going against Suva. Suva was a beautiful and very tall alien that had feathers going all the way to his butt. Taran realized he wanted Suva, but continued to focus on the human. Suva wanted them both and was determined to win them both. Now all he had to do is show Taran that it could be done. It takes time for Greg to see that they wanted him for and he was all up for it.

Now with this book it seemed that they had done this in the past and were doing it over because Greg actually loves the chase and he knows his mates love it also. This book was cute, but I wish it had been longer. However, it made me like the characters even more. Suva wants them both, Taran wants a mate but is a little scared and Greg is completely wanting them both but doesn’t know what will happen to him. I am sure he figured it real soon though. It has a humor to it that made me laugh throughout the story.

Home The Hard Way

by

Z.A. Maxfield

Dare Buckley has come home—or at least, he’s come back to Palladian, the small town he left as a teenager. After a major lapse in judgment forced him to resign from the Seattle PD, Palladian is the only place that’ll hire him. There’s one benefit to hitting rock bottom, though: the chance to investigate the mystery of his father’s suicide.

Dare also gets to reacquaint himself with Finn Fowler, whose childhood hero worship ended in uncomfortable silence when Dare moved away. But Finn isn’t the same little kid Dare once protected. He’s grown into an attractive, enigmatic stranger who neither wants nor needs what Dare has to offer.

In fact, Dare soon realizes that Finn’s keeping secrets—his own and the town’s. And he doesn’t seem to care that Dare needs answers. The atmosphere in Palladian, like its namesake river, appears placid, but dark currents churn underneath. When danger closes in, Dare must pit his ingenuity against his heart, and find his way home the hard way.

Blurb: Josh Braden and Ryan Winters are like day and night – Josh is a defense attorney, Ryan is a cop. Josh is reserved, Ryan is laid back. Josh is openly gay, Ryan is in the closet.

Once they meet, however, neither of them can deny an attraction. They suddenly have one thing in common – the need to be together, both in the courtroom and in the bedroom.

As time passes, they realize that their relationship has become more than just hot, satisfying sex. But will love be enough to overcome their differences? Will they be able to work through them, or will it take a near tragedy to make them see what is really important?

Review: This story turned out better than I thought. It actually had me in tears through some parts of it. I was sure that it would not end up the way it did and for that, I am sure. Josh was a lawyer and mostly reserved. He was out in his life, but there was one man that he had wanted to the point that he was afraid to wish for what he wanted. Ryan however was not only a cop but in the closet. He is very laid back but he doesn’t want to come out. He wanted to hide it.

When they met, you could feel the attraction. Josh knew that Ryan was looking for a place so he comes up with an idea to at least have him around. Ryan jumped at the chance. Things start heating up with them, but their main problem was Ryan hiding his sexuality from those around him and Josh’s fear of Ryan getting injured or worse killed. They fought about it and it was driving them slowly apart. All that changed when Ryan was injured in a car accident.

A car accident that at first they were not sure he would survive but he ended up not remembering what Josh and Ryan were together. He was willing to do everything and anything to make him happy, even if Ryan never remembered what they were together.
T

he part of the story that pained me was the fact that you could tell they were in love but it did not seem enough to bring Ryan out in the open. Also, when Ryan woke up from his accident he didn’t remember what they meant together. It seemed like to me his objection of coming out was slowly showing in him now that he is awake. When he remembered the argument shows up again, but they are willing to make it work. I did love the story though. It just seems like some people actually might be like this. It comes off so very real and true.

I loved the story and can’t wait to check out the rest of Susan’s books.

But that passionate fire Carlos and Milan had never died. It’s alive and hotter than ever, so is their love they keep denying to each other.

Review: This is book one in this series and I would suggest reading them in order. It will keep you from not getting lost, gives you an insight into their world and explain why they do the things they do.

This is a cute story although it did have me questioning why Milan had left me guessing but he answers it a little further in the story. I found a new world that was amazing. Milan and Carlos had been in love and were planning to go on with their lives together. However when Carlos had asked him to get married he panicked. Going and getting drunk ended up with him in the alley getting bitten by a werewolf.

He awoke surrounded by priest and told what had happened. He spent the later years trying to help those that had ended up like him. Living in a monastery with the brotherhood kept his life busy. However, it did not make him forget his father, sister and the man he loved. He thought about Carlos all the time. So when his sister calls him about this father he rushes back. He finds his father dying, his little sister crying and Carlos madder than a hornet. Carlos had gone on with his life, engaged to a woman and just wanting to help his adopted family. However, things don’t always go the way things are planned. Carlos was meant to be with Milan and life has a way at making that happen.

I love the dangers that this story shows you that is out there. I also loved the way Carlos had taken to the new of Milan being a werewolf. It shows the love is still there going strong. I have found another favorite here and I cannot wait for the next book to come out. My only problem is that there was not enough to it. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading it and kept it all the way to the end. It left me wanting more. I would recommend reading this story. It gives you sexy men, shifters, excitement, and the sense of danger.

This story will give you everything you could want in it and still leave you wanting to know more. It makes you want to go out and get the next book. I was glad to have had a chance to read it.

When Dan confesses after his buck’s show that he’s getting cold feet, Josh – who can’t help feeling a little jealous of his friend – doesn’t understand why he wouldn’t want to marry the gorgeous Rachel Moore.

Everything becomes clear later after a few drinks. They share a kiss that leads to them having sex and Josh finds out the best friend he thought he knew so well is actually gay. He doesn’t know how to deal with this or his guilt when he has to face Dan’s fiancée and tell her what happened. Especially when he starts to develop his own feelings for Dan.

Review: This story was quite a surprise I must say. Dan was getting married to Rachel but was in love with Josh. Josh was straight and he had assumed that so was Dan. However when Dan shows up with cold feet, he had decided to help him out. He just wasn’t expecting it to come in a kiss or even sex. Josh is so very confused and a bit angry. Here his best friend is getting married to a knock out and has sex with him.

He is not only confused but feeling very guilty for sleeping with a soon to be married best friend. Dan has always wanted Josh, even to the point he is in love with him. He never told Josh his feelings or the fact that he was gay. One night changes it all. Now all Josh has to do is figure out his feelings. Although the marriage part has him bewildered, confused and guilt speared through him. That is until a night of drinking and sex shows him the truth. The truth is he loves Dan the same way.

I loved the story but I needed more from it. I can see marrying someone to get something you need and even for love. However, this is not what’s happening. In a time where it is getting more common for same-sex people to marry that these guys have to still hide to get what they wanted. It was a good story but just not for me. I needed more from it and didn’t get it.

Blurb: Country music singer, Zane Alexander has struggled to keep his sexuality a secret, but hiding his attraction to their new guitarist, Finn Presswood, is damn near impossible.

On the run from a dangerous ex-lover, Finn has secrets of his own, but his feelings for Zane isn’t one of them.
When the new song they co-wrote leads to a recording contract with a major Nashville label, it becomes clear that their lives are about to change. Unfortunately, secrets are harder to hide in the limelight, so for Zane, fake-dating a famous supermodel seems like the best solution for everyone.

Their dreams are finally within their grasp until Finn’s past catches up, and no matter how much the two men love each other, happiness is never a guarantee.

If good intentions pave the road to hell, then broken neon paves the road to Nashville.

Purchase Link: http://www.evernightpublishing.com/broken-neon-by-tyler-robbins/
Review: I love romance stories as well as the next person, but this story just had a bit more to it. It has so much potential that I was amazed by it.

I wasn’t too happy with Zane’s past choices and the fact that his friends, coworkers and family seemed to harp about it all the time. His last boyfriend had broadcasted it so much that for three months they were trying to bring their name back up in the music circle. He had tried so hard to hide who he was, that he almost doesn’t go forward with his life. When they needed a guitar player, he had chosen Finn.
Finn was a damn good player but he was green. He wanted to help his brother who was brain-damaged enough that he would have to be watched all the time. He was always getting into trouble. So when he gets the job, he asks for a little more. He asked to have his brother helping load things and do any work they could come up with. What he had not expected was his ex-lover. His ex-lover was dangerous and he is now on the run.

The problem was that they both wanted each other, however since Zane was in the closet so to speak there were more problems arising. He had thought dating a supermodel would help but it was all fake. None of that was real, what was real was his feelings for Finn. Then the dangers come for Finn, now Zane wants to protect what is his.

The danger that came for him was far more dangerous than even he had to admit. The drug cartel, drugs, money, trafficking kidnapped women, and quite a bit of dangers situations. Top that off these two are in love and want it to be more. They have the support of those important to them. Now all they needed was the courage to make it go.

I loved this book. It had everything that I asked for in a story. The perfect story line and an amazing plot just made it even better. There is so much seriousness but a touch of humor although not much. It shows what happens when one gets into the wrong crowd and how hard it is to get out. How the love of a good man can make even the bad better. I can’t wait to check out the rest of Tyler’s books. I would recommend reading this because if you don’t you are missing a story that will show you a world that is a hard one to live in. It will show you just what love can do for you.

Reviewer: Tootsie
Review: An End Has a Start, the 5th and final book, in the Romeo and Julian series, has left me with many feelings. I have grown to love these two guys as if I knew them personally. I have read and re-read each volume more than once and feel very close to them. I wasn’t sure what to anticipate for the big finale. I thought I knew in which direction the story would go. I was wrong, and when I am wrong, I never hesitate to admit it (unless it’s to my husband, of course). The direction Romeo and Julian take just re-emphasized the truth I had already known. Sage Marlowe is a masterful storyteller, who has taken us on an amazing journey, and brings us to a closure that leaves us feeling vindicated and elated with the outcome.

One of the many things that I always enjoy with this author’s writing is when one story ends and the next one begins, we have not lost time. You start where the last book left off never feeling as though you just time-travelled and have to find your way around. In book 4, A Safe Place, we left the guys recuperating at the farmhouse owned by Romeo and a close friend. When I opened book 5, An End Has a Start, I am able to jump right back into the story because they are still at the farm allowing Romeo time to heal from his injuries.

Julian realizes he cannot trust Romeo to sit back quietly and relax, giving himself time to heal. He is always on guard that he will run. He takes measures of his own to secure his patient giving him time for much needed rest and relaxation. Julian wants answers and as Romeo has proven time and again, he is not that reliable relaying what he knows. Trying to be strong and not be swayed by smooth talk and sexy eyes, he wants Romeo to tell him what he knows and stop leaving out the most important parts. Shocked by some of the facts Julian discovers, he should not be surprised by the events unfolding. Romeo always seems to be one step ahead, but Julian has a few surprises up his sleeve, as well, and when the time comes, he just hopes the actions he has taken will pan out.

I shouldn’t have been surprised that Romeo knew all along who was chasing them and where he needed to go to find what everyone seems to want, the treasure. He also knew, or with great certainty, who had killed his parents. He just needed proof that would put the killer away in a nice prison cell, but obtaining that proof was another matter. With time running out, and his close friend in more danger than he was comfortable with, Romeo and Julian work fast to meet the demands the killer has issued. Julian is amazed how well the two of them work together as a team. They have been together long enough that reading each other and knowing the signals create a smooth and efficient operation. Even with the seriousness and urgency of their situation, they still find time for humour and affection.

As it has been the case from day one, their connection and chemistry is strong. Being lovers and expressing that love is something they both need. Whether it is a touch of a finger, holding hands or a kiss on the cheek, they thrive on these intimate points of contact. Making sure the other know they are loved is never held back or in question. Making love, finding what makes the other purr is a beautiful vision that Sage so adequately describes leaving you feeling as if you just witnessed something magical right before your eyes. Romeo is more comfortable and confidant in expressing what he wants and needs from Julian. They both realize that Romeo may pull the strings during the day, but Julian will pull them in the bedroom. Adding toys to their lovemaking only increase the pleasure leaving them exposed, sometimes vulnerable, but definitely sated.

This was an amazing series and an incredible journey. Sage has no trouble grabbing your attention and holding it while taking you through many twists and turns. All we have to do is hold on and enjoy the ride. The ride was bumpy at times, the journey unclear of what was in store. But one thing I know without any doubt is I can trust this author to give me a story that will take root in my heart and stay with me for quite some time. With this being the last story in the series, a lot of questions will be answered. A “face palm” is sure to happen as the ending comes in sight. And, as the saying goes “famous last words”, the author will get his leaving you with a moment of Hmmm, I wonder.
