Blurb: SEAL sniper, Dane Sawyer, is known as Eagle Eye for his deadly aim. He’s also good at hiding his identity as a gay Dom. Childhood trauma has led him to live and play deep in the closet. Then a bullet to his thigh lands him on leave and in the incredible hands of a hot ensign assigned to get him back in the field.

Will Chadwick is happy to finally be living as an openly gay man in the Navy. And as a physical therapist, he’s used to coaxing bad asses like Dane into doing their PT. Harder for him is resisting the temptation that Dane presents. He’s a patient and hiding his sexuality. A prudent man would keep his distance.

But Dane doesn’t know how to quit, and seducing Will has become a mission. The budding sub in Will can’t resist the Dom’s commands. If he could only make Dane see that being a man doesn’t mean hiding his true self.

Review: This is part of a series but can be read as a standalone. I absolutely was fascinated with this book. The first part had me in tears, the way Dand was raised. He always loved looking at the male body even at a young age. When his father saw it, then the beatings started. If his mother interfered she was hurt also, even though she did not like his interest in boys either. Dane joined the Navy then the Seals, but by the time he was in a team his father had passed.

Injured on a mission he was stuck on land until he healed. Which mean he had to go to physical therapy. Now when he got his first look at his therapist he was captivated. Will was sexy as hell. Dane had to hide a lot of his desires from the world and the fact that he was a gay Dom just made it even more frustrating. He was deeply in the closet. However he wanted Will and had decided to go after him. The only problem was Will was not going for it.

Will wanted Dane also but he didn’t want to hide. He allowed a fun weekend away with him, but when they got back he just couldn’t stay hidden like Dane. Dane didn’t want to let this man get away but he agreed that he could not come out. He was afraid of what would happen. That is until Will goes over seas to the war zone. He follows him, but then Will is hit by a bullet. He takes out the bad, but can’t do anything for Will but be there for him.

Will is in love with this man, but can Dane come out for him. I loved this story and hope to hear more about this author. It was a fascinating story that 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 if you love two sexy men in uniform, dominates and submissives, BDSM scenes, hot and passionate sex, tender glances, excitement and a touch of attitude.

Blurb: Neil Morgan knows there’s a high price to fine quality, but simply never thought of it in reference to a person. As a New York businessman, Neil must keep up appearances even if he dislikes what’s required of him. While trying to contain his shock at the activities of the local Buy Ball, a gorgeous ocelot propositions him.

Cecil Torres wants the right master and he thinks maybe he’s found the one when he stumbles upon Neil at the Ball. Getting Neil’s attention is easy—Cecil’s trained to make an entrance—but getting a smart man to agree to a risky bet is another matter. Never one to renege on a bet, Neil gladly pays the steep purchase price. Cecil plans to be everything Neil needs. And as an ocelot, no other cat is as qualified to be the perfect host, in every way.

After one eventful evening, Neil and Cecil hit a bump in the road. Can a misunderstanding of words and Neil’s error in not reading the fine print cost them everything?

Review: This is book two in this series and they need to be read in order. It gives you an insight into their world and their lives. Slaves are not considered anything but slaves. They are used and abused by many. Although there are some that are considered high-priced. They are still used sexually.Neil had been raised by parents that showed love as cruel and deadly. All he wanted was to purchase a slave to entertain the men at his poker parties given for his company.

What he finds is a very sexy little man who entices him into a little bet. A bet that if he could get him released, that he must purchase Cecil. Cecil is one of those high-priced slaves. He is an ocelot, a rare shifter. They inprint on the person they have sex with when bitten. That would be what Neil would have to do to purchase Cecil. The other reason that they are considered high-priced is because when they do inprint, they are loyal only to that person, they will do everything to please their mate, very caring, and loving. The downside is that if their mate took another lover or married it would physically hurt them. Although they will let it happen to please their mate.

Neil doesn’t touch him after the first day, until sometime later when he keeps looking at Cecil. He had bought Cecil to entertain and he did like to watch other men with Cecil but he wants Cecil also. Everything was going great till the night Cecil told him he loved him. Neil had made the mistake of not reading anything about ocelots and it almost cost him everything that was starting to matter most.

I loved this book although the idea that they are considered nothing but slaves is horrible. I also wasn’t liking the fact that Cecil was used by Neil’s friends and people he wanted to impress. That was the only part of this series that I didn’t like much. However, the story itself was a top favorite. It is told with just a hint of humor with so much seriousness. It caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end. I loved it and cannot wait to get my hands on the next book.

Ryan has to get out. He’s been in love with Sam for so many years he’s afraid if he doesn’t leave that he’ll spend his whole life alone in love with someone he can never have…but of course Ryan can’t tell his oldest and best friend that he’s in love with him. It would ruin the most important thing in his life.

Before it’s too late, they have to find the courage to tell each other the truth about how they feel…to finally say those things they’ve kept to themselves for far too long.

Review: Short, Sexy and Steamy… say it with me everybody… my three favourite colors!!!

Sam and Ryan have been best friends since they were children, spending every day, almost every minute together. Sam’s an only child whose parents spend their time globetrotting and attending high-end dinners. Ryan’s the only boy surrounded by sisters, but a loving family none the less. He’s been living with Sam to be closer to school, away from the drama that is the daily life of several teenage girls and truth be told, Sam thoroughly enjoys the company. But now it’s time for Ryan to go to college, and leave his best friend behind.

A frantic but fantastic moment shared between best friends ends in sorrow when words are misconstrued, and then Ryan is on his way to Seattle, and everything is left unsaid. Both Sam and Ryan are miserable immediately. They fell in love a long time ago, but neither ever spoke up for fear of losing each other if the feelings weren’t returned.

Ryan makes friends and considers dating, but realizes he can’t stop loving Sam. While Sam starts cooking school and wallows in his own misery, feeling the loneliness left in Ryan’s absence. Thankfully, Ryan will be home for Christmas break soon. But will either young man find the strength to say all the things they’ve left unsaid?

One thing O’Shea knows is how to write a great coming of age, angsty romance with lots of passion and steam. While Sam and Ryan are both a tad bit immature in the beginning, making decisions out of hurt and haste, they do finally admit their shared feelings and grow up a bit.

I loved that their first time together was all arms and legs and awkwardness, it really fed into the overall feel of the story. In the end, I was left with a sweet story about soul mates that left a smile on my face.

Blurb: Born a slave, Joss grew up alone, uneducated, unloved, and dreading the day, he turned eighteen and began servicing those who came to the brothel. It’s a horrible life for the cat shifters who have no rights and aren’t even seen as people. The only highlight is the massive parties the brothels throw once every few months to draw in potential buyers.

Joss is about to give up the dream of finding a permanent owner—the hope of every slave. But then the mystery man in the white mask buys him, turning his world upside down. While Joss should hate that, all he wants is to make Dencil happy and solve the man’s problems. Will the cost of Joss’s help be more than he can handle?

Review: This is book one in this series and they should be read in order. It gives you an insight into their world. A world that is unjust to many shifters. Shifters are not considered anything but slaves. They are used for sex whether they wanted it or through rape. Although to me even if they wanted it, it is still rape to me, because they truly don’t have any choice.

Dencil is human and had purchased two puma shifters a few years back. However, Ty and Austin have not really wanted anything to do with him. They were both mated, but Dencil was lost without them in a way. Dencil loved them but he didn’t want to be alone. So he decided to purchase Joss. Joss is a tiger shifter and although they are known for being territorial however when you put the four together, very hot. He needed Joss’s help to find out why Ty and Austin are drifting away from him. However, is he ready for those answers?

Joss comes into the home and it comes clear to him, that there are many shifters in the household. Four Doberman shifters and they have attitude. He can tell that one thinks he is the alpha and doesn’t truly think that Dencil is their boss and owner. When shifters are bought, they are to wear shock collars to control them and this is what the Dobermans were doing.

With Joss’s help he found out that his pumas did in fact love him, but they were scared. The Dobermans were ganging up on them by raping them and beating them daily. Although Joss knew something was going on, but he hadn’t known until Dencil had to go away for a day. Ty and Austin didn’t know Dencil wanted them as mates. They had believed what they were told and were scared. But thanks to Joss, they had found out that they had gotten it all wrong. They did love Dencil and want him as their mate, as they wanted Joss also.
This story was fascinating and I loved it.

Four men having sex with each other on separate occasions and together…hot hot hot!! I loved this book and cannot wait to read book two. It gave me everything I wanted in it, not just two but four sexy men, shifters, the paranormal world, excitement, action, hot sex, and dangerous situations. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading it and kept it all the way to the end.

Blurb: When Noah steps in to protect an elderly woman from being attacked by her violent grandson, he has no idea how much his life is about to change. Being stabbed by something sharp and mauled by a wolf hadn’t been part of the plan, but waking up to find his wounds healed is just the first of many surprises.

Liam is an accountant, an introvert, and a gay werewolf living in a pack that doesn’t tolerate anyone different. He’s spent his entire life hiding in the proverbial closet and staying out of trouble’s way, and he sure as hell won’t risk the people he loves by letting any of them know the secret he keeps.

But the unexpected rise of a new alpha throws his orderly world into chaos. Finding himself physically attracted to the man is as terrifying as it is fascinating, and Liam struggles to hide exactly what he’s feeling

So what happens when the pack’s new alpha turns out to be a very strong, very capable, very confident ex-Navy SEAL with a soft spot for shy bookkeepers?

Review: This is book one in this series and I can tell you that I have found another favorite series. I absolutely loved it. The characters were so easy to fall in love with. You should read this book first. Because I get a feeling, you are going to learn all about the future characters. I loved the way the words just wormed their way into my heart.

Noah was not only a Navy Seal but he was also human. Although he didn’t think about that at all. He didn’t know when he moved there that there were werewolves. He didn’t even know that they even existed. He sees his neighbor in need of some help and decides to protect the elderly woman. The boy who was hurting the woman seemed a bit off. However, he ended up killing him and getting injured. Maggie ended up saving his life, by changing him into a werewolf.

Then he finds out that the boy he killed was in fact the pack alpha, making him their new alpha. The surprises keep on coming. He had always been attracted to Liam when he was human and now even more so. He even notices that Liam doesn’t smell like the others. He has found his life mate.

Liam is a sweet and tender wolf, not a coward but very cautious. He never liked fighting. When he and Noah have sex, Noah bites him. Although at the time, he didn’t think anything about it, that is until he finds out that they are now mated. He wants Noah but is afraid of what the others would say about it. Then the dangers come to them.

The pack doesn’t want a gay alpha, but it turned out not to be the whole pack. He did have the support of many of the pack, but he still has to protect those he loves. He definitely is in love with his mate.
I loved this story. It gave me two very sexy men, werewolves, the paranormal world, excitement, new adventures, lots of action and danger.

I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book.

Reviewer: Tootsie
Review: I have always been a huge fan of Cameron Dane, HUGE. I have all of her titles and I could not wait to get started on this newest release. With that said, it pains me to say I had a really hard time getting through this story. In my opinion, it was not her best work to date. There were places I felt the story was too amateurish. The storyline seemed to drag and although the plot had a suspense/mystery to it, it was a bit stifling, almost stagnant at times.

David Joyner has just been released from prison and returns to his hometown to not only make amends, but to live his life and start anew. A lot of people turned against him after many of his secrets were exposed. He came out to his family and the entire town, at the same time, after stalking an ex and then trying to commit suicide. He only wants to atone for his past transgressions, find a steady job, and keep his head down.

He did find a job at the local animal shelter but keeping his head down has not worked for him. He gets into more than one raucous in town drawing unwanted attention to himself. What he doesn’t realize, however, someone is watching him very closely. He tries to figure out, on his own, who the mystery person is leaving him threatening notes. He’s not comfortable reporting these threats because of his record. No one will believe him, so he thinks, and maybe he deserves this anyway after what he put everyone through.

Because of the turmoil David caused in the past, Ben Evans, a private investigator has been hired to follow him and see if he is, in fact, a changed man. Ben has been forced to take some needed vacation time and put his own life into perspective. He hates not being able to work or staying busy so when he gets the phone call to help an old friend he jumps at the chance. What Ben doesn’t expect is to be attracted to David, the person he is to follow.

After meeting David, coincidentally they share the same motel, he recognizes immediately an attraction. Never in his professional career has he had such feelings towards his client. He knows he shouldn’t have those feelings now but he can’t seem to pull himself back. Each day, Ben and David spend a little more time together, learning about their pasts, what they want for their future and they have great chemistry. Ben is torn with decisions he knows he has to make. The first one being he can no longer follow David and report back his findings.

Will David even want to continue seeing Ben when he find out is true purpose? How will this affect his progress with his therapy? Ben knows he has to come clean with David. He really likes him and honesty is important to both of them.

David has made a lot of progress with his insecurities and his obsessive behaviour since he has been released. This time when he messes it up, he recognizes what he’s doing and immediately pulls back. Hopefully, this will pay off for him and give him the strength and courage he needs when the person threatening him ups the ante and takes it one step further. Will Ben be able to save David or will David finally step up, do what is required, and save himself?

Even though there were places within the storyline I had trouble, this is still a good story. It won’t keep me from buying the next one this author releases because Cameron Dane is an amazing author. She writes very hot sex scenes between her characters and she doesn’t hesitate to include them frequently. In this story, you could certainly see the characters growing and reaching a different level of maturity.

For me, the prose wasn’t as tight as what I am use to reading from this author. I know what Ms. Dane is capable of, and for that alone I will always read anything and everything she releases. This story is part of the Foster Siblings series but it can definitely be read as a standalone. Characters from previous books make a small appearance but if you haven’t read the others, it will not hinder you here.

I would recommend this novel to anyone because what bothers me may not bother you. And it is, after all, Cameron Dane. Just her name alone will always pull me in, without pause, allowing me any and every opportunity to add her books to my shelf.

Review: Graham Davenport is a sexy sarcastic alcoholic that is mean to everyone. When Damon Malone tells him the night of Hunter and Clay’s wedding that he needs to sober up he decides to do just that. Three days after the wedding and going cold turkey he is accused by his brother for Damon’s kidnapping.

Upset that Damon is missing he does everything in his power to assist the police in finding Damon before it too late. Graham eventually tells his brother what caused him to change is nine years ago he told their father he was gay and wanted to go on a date with Damon. His father’s reaction was swift and cruel. He cut Graham out of everything and gave Arthur everything after lying to him about many things. Graham couldn’t leave as he was threatened that if he did his father would throw Arthur out. So he stays and tries in a vain attempt to forget Damon in making him hate him. It doesn’t work.

After sweet and shy Damon is kidnapped, tied up, blindfolded, and beaten by an unknown assailant he believes he’s going to die. He continuously thinks of Graham who he had a crush on. The kidnapper keeps telling Damon that he was trying to take someone from him, finally, after three days of torture, takes him somewhere, uses Damon’s phone to call Graham to let them know where he is after burying him alive.

This was a very intense, emotional, action packed wonderfully written book. The details of what Damon went through were horrifying in their intensity. Loved the fact that Graham changed and stayed right by Damon’s side as he was recuperating from his ordeal and finally confided in Damon as to the reason why he acted the way he did for so many years. A lot of gentle touches and kisses going on as well as hot sex scene between Graham and Damon after they both admit their feelings for one another.

After suffering through so much separately and together, I’m glad they finally got together in the end. Fantastic read.

Blurb: Aiden didn’t mean to bite the man…
When Goldie drops by to visit his old swim buddy, he’s rather surprised to discover that instead of the quiet life Noah had wanted, that the man is now in charge of some secret organization. Goldie is even more worried when he realizes that Noah’s life seems to be in danger.

As a Navy SEAL Goldie never left a man behind and he isn’t about to start now.

Determined to help with a situation no one will adequately explain, he is more than a little pissed to realize Aiden has been assigned to him as a bodyguard.

Aiden has suspected for some time now that he might be gay. When he meets the alpha’s old swim buddy, that suspicion is more than confirmed, but it’s his near obsession with the human that is truly confusing.

Biting Goldie during sex hadn’t been in the plan, but explaining to the alpha what happened next sure isn’t going to be easy…

Review: This is book two in this series and I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on the next book. You need to read book one first as it gives you an insight into each romantic couple. Or I should say the wolves. It is an amazing world that you will find yourself drawn into. A world that I wouldn’t mind being a part of. The characters have so much depth and you can’t help but fall in love with each one of them. Although you might want to smack them upside the head sometimes.

Goldie was one of Noah’s best friends and also a Navy Seal. He had always felt guilty about Noah getting injured and losing his career. He wanted to visit him and see how he was doing. He was also half way in love with Noah. However, when he shows up at Noah’s he was quite surprised by the amount of people there. That and the very sexy man who wouldn’t give him any answers. He liked looking at Aiden and wanted to get his hands on the man. So talk about a big surprise when he finds out that they are werewolves and that Noah is the alpha.

Aiden is more surprised when he accidentally gives Goldie the mating bite during their first sexual time. Of course, the biggest one was that Aiden is in fact an alpha also. Now here he was mated to a human that kept pushing his buttons, but when Goldie asks him to change him, he takes him to Maggie. He didn’t know if he or anyone could change a human into a werewolf but Maggie would.

The surprises kept coming out of the closet for them. The dangers to the pack just kept coming up. Many didn’t like the fact that their alpha was gay and that anyone else in the pack was gay. They wanted the pack the way it was even if the old alpha was cruel.

I love this book, it has a twist to the story that I loved. I also love the way it seems to have just a hint of humor in it. I always love a story that can give me a laugh, as well as make me cry in parts. I cannot wait to read the next book in this series. I can tell that it will be one of my favorites and will be added to my library.

I can see myself reading this story over and over again. It gives you sexy seals, strong wolves, crazy friends, a quirky old woman, excitement, adventure, action, and a lot of danger. It gave me that and so much more. It caught my attention from the very first paragraph and kept it all the way to the end.
