Blurb: Jens Arnesen is only looking for a taste of the city, a place to experience Boston. What he finds is a sexy naked man who ends up being more than he bargained for. Elliot Matthews needs a place to stay until the storm blows over and the airports open. Being walked in on by Jens starts out as an annoyance but grows into the best thing in his life. When the skies clear and the airports open, they have no choice but to part. If only they lived closer to each other than life would be perfect.

When the storm throws them together, can Jens and Elliot make the most of the situation?

Review: Jens is in Boston for a writer’s convention and decides to stay at a friend’s rental for a few days instead of a hotel for the ambience. When he arrives, he finds a naked man emerging form the bathroom.

Elliot is a friend of Adam’s, Jen’s friend’s partner. Evidently, the two men didn’t communicate when renting out the room. With a huge snow storm approaching the two men decide to share the room and hit it off really well.

I have to say I expected more from this story. We were told that Jens was a writer and had a boyfriend that never answers his calls and that’s it. I would have liked more about Elliot, who he was and why he had such low self-esteem. I would have liked more conflict and more about the blizzard.

Having said that, the story is well written, the sex scenes were very hot and the ending very satisfying.
If you like, blizzards, writers, insta-love, and lots of hot mansex this is for you!

Blurb: Undercover work sucked. As a shadow hunter for the Umbra, Justice Cameron was used to sliding into one dangerous situation after another. Infiltrating the motorcycle club, Pride of Kings, to wrap up two outstanding cases should have been quick and painless—turns out it was anything but. Justice didn’t count on Ethan Stone’s son, Xavier, to complicate his assignment.

Xavier Lennox doesn’t care for the ‘lion pride’ way of life, so the scarred, shy loner keeps to himself, living a quiet life in a small cabin at the edge of the MC compound. He ‘fixes broken things’, and no one is more broken than Justice. When Xavier finds Justice beaten on his doorstep, he never imagined he would feel such a potent connection. The big, gruff alpha fascinates Xavier, and it turns out, the attraction is mutual.

The shadow hunter is there for one reason only. No time for complications. No time for desire…or love. Or so he tells himself, because he’s there to mete out…cold, hard justice.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in The Umbra Shifters collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved.

The thing about this book is that you really have to pay attention or you will get just a bit lost. There is something about this book that makes it a bit harder to truly get into. With short stories, it is difficult to give an excellent telling of a story without getting to close to the whole story.

Justice is an Umbra soldier, sent in to stop the dangers, criminal, and sometimes evils of his world. The MC’s were under investigation for selling children for playthings. He wants to stop it all, just didn’t know that when he went in that he would come out with his mate.

Xavier knew that Justice was hiding something, but he was falling in love with the man. Then when the truth came out, he had to make a choice. His family or his mate, to me that is not a hard choice. Especially when you know all that it involves, and why it does.

It is a good story and with a little more story to it, I would think it would make it an excellent story. It is too short for my likings but I loved the way the characters just seem to mix. I like the danger that is involved with what they do. I also love the way they feel things more strongly with their mates. It is a pretty cool story and I do look forward to reading the next book.

I would recommend reading this book. It gives you gorgeous men, shifters, excitement, and danger. Not to mention the hot sex when these two get together.

Review: Each book in Dark Hollow Wolf Pack collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved. This particular series has always been good, but with each book, it gets a bit harder to work through it. It is just a bit confusing with all the characters fighting with each other.

Connor is basically a third wheel, going out with his friends and not really paying too much attention to the outside world. On the way home, they are involved in an accident, which one of the injured is his mate. A mate that is hated by all wolves. His father had been the head of the hunters and Connor’s mate was almost like his father. T

he problem was Jeremy doesn’t seem to be the way it all comes out. Nicky and Marco have a reason for hating Jeremy, but Connor’s brother is just plain worried about him. There are always questions without answers and they need to find out what they are.

Jeremy knows who he is, the fact that he is around wolves, but the rest of his life is just in a haze from the accident. He knows that he is one of the top hated humans, but there is a surprise. He has a wolf inside of him, a wolf put into him using Marco’s hearts blood.

His wolf wants Nicky but his human side wants his mate. How the hell does he get into these messes? He was once a well-known heart surgeon and now he is wanted dead by all wolves. His father was dead, but there had to be answers out there somewhere that could help them.

When these two men, get together it is hot and very sexy. I had a blast reading it, but it left me hanging on the end. I wanted to know what they found out and how Marco handles the fact that Connor’s mate is sticking around. It was not one of my favorites though. There was something off about the book that drove me nuts.

This book is full of tension, anger, hate, lust, hot sex, and love. Gorgeous men, sexy shifters, excitement, action, and danger is just a part of this story. I would recommend reading this book. Be ready for a late night.

Eventually, Bud is reported missing by his wife, and the trail leads to the gargoyle’s estate. Tristan meets Detective Collin DeSoto, who is looking into the disappearance. Tristan immediately recognizes the man as his mate, and while the sex between them is explosive, that’s the only easy thing between them.

To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved. I love the way Charlie can put together a book that not only fascinates you but draws you in. I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading more by Charlie.

There is something about the way that Charlie tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect the ones they love with all that they have. I had a blast reading this story.

Tristan is an albino alligator and had been held captive for some time in a freak circus. He had been kicked out by his family and his alpha for being albino. It wasn’t until they were saved that he got to actually live his life. He wanted to help bring those that wanted to capture, torture, use or kill. His job was not hard, get Bud to give him the answers to his questions. He knew someone would start asking questions about him, but he had not known that the gorgeous detective asking questions was to be his mate.

Collin knew all about shifters, vampires, and gargoyles. He was told to find out the answers about the man missing, but he also knew he could not give them the truth. He had to protect the paranormal world. He had not expected to come across a gorgeous man telling him that he was his mate.

The problem was he was not out, so he had to decide what he truly wanted. And he definitely wanted Tristan.

The dangers were out there, now they just had to protect those they love. When Collin and Tristan get together, it is so damn hot. I have always loved a good paranormal, and Charlie sure can give you some amazing shifter types. I think that this is one of the first books that I have read about an albino alligator. I had a blast reading it that is for sure.

I absolutely love this book almost as much as I have loved the others in this series. I can’t wait to read the next story. When Charlie puts out a book, I am usually there to eat them up. They do have a bit of a serious tone to them but there is a just a touch of humor in them that I love. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. It also gave me everything I could want in a book

. I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing and loving.

Blurb: There’s no leverage like seduction…until love takes a bite of his plans.

As the Indiana Jones of historical erotica, there is no document existing—or just rumored to exist—Adin Tredeger can’t unearth. Why he would risk the biggest coup of his career to join the mile-high club is beyond him. But the disarming, dark-eyed man who somehow enters Adin’s locked airplane washroom has him completely nude and coming apart. All without a whimper of protest.

From that moment, Adin and Donte Fedelta engage in an international battle of wit and cunning. The prize—a priceless, 500-year-old journal with illustrations so erotic it could make the Marquis de Sade blush.

Yet Donte’s desire for the journal goes far beyond simple possession. The undead nobleman wrote it. And he’s not above using every trick in his otherworldly arsenal—including seduction—to get it back.

Chemistry draws them together even as fortune tugs them apart. But when a third-party joins the chase, they must unite to fight an enemy with a deadly goal—to erase Donte from history.

This book is a rerelease of a previously published book, with substantial rewrites.

Product Warnings
This product contains one cocky college professor, one centuries-old vampire who is out to show him who’s at the top of the food chain, and red wine. Because it goes so well with humble pie.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Intense at times this book takes you on a journey following Adin as he reads parts of a 500-year-old manuscript, meets a sexy vampire, and has said manuscript stolen from him by an unknown party only to be continuously threatened by others who believe he still has it. I loved the parts of the manuscript he read they seemed to show just how much Donte loved his lover even though he couldn’t be with him.

The chemistry between Donte and Adin was smoldering and the passion even hotter. While it was a very well written book, I found it hard to believe that after meeting Donte and learning he was a vampire that Adin was shocked when he came face to face with another vampire. Did he honestly believe that Donte, 500 years old and the writer and illustrator of the manuscript, was the only vampire?

I thought it was sweet how Donte wanted to protect Adin from harm even though at the beginning he told Adin he had no humanity after being turned. Good read.

I love the way Lynn can put together a book that not only fascinates you but also draws you in. I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading more by Lynn. This series is actually one of the series that originally branched out from the Brac Pack series. So to actually keep all of the characters in your head start with that series first.

There is something about the way that Lynn tells a story that will not only draw you in and keep your attention the whole time, but it will more than likely have you laughing your ass off. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down. They will protect their mates with their entire lives.

I had a blast reading this story. Zeke’s brotherChase had dared him and bribed him to go into the Manacle. He swore up and down that it was full of vampires. Zeke really didn’t want to but he did. He also caught the eye of Christo and managed to get right in the club. However, he wasn’t gay and was not going to go there. That is what he thought anyhow.

Christo had been around for quite a long time, he wanted his mate but he was also known to screw any one he liked. Now standing before him is his mate. Not only does he have to figure out how to tell him that he is his mate, he has to tell him that he is a vampire. He also has to protect his mate and mate’s brothers. Things were not so tidy after all. He was related to a hunter. Things were about to heat up really fast.

I absolutely love this book almost as much as I have loved the other’s in this series. I can’t wait to read the next story. When Lynn puts out a book, I am usually there to eat them up. They do have a bit of a serious tone to them but there is a lot of humor in them that I love. It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end.

Blurb: The courage of the Lone Wolf Pack changed more lives and affected more destinies than they’d ever thought. The ripples echoing through their entire world brought together countless lovers.

Landon Boone is angry. His pack insists on him taking an official female mate, but all he wants is to wait for his other half. An outburst of temper—in a human bar, no less—forces him into anger management classes. It is yet another irritant for a werewolf Alpha with too many problems to count.

He does not expect his mate to walk through the same door Landon dragged himself through.

Angel is everything Landon had wanted, and more—so beautiful he truly deserves his name. Against all odds, anger management classes—the werewolf Alpha edition—actually have a result.

But Angel also carries the burden of a painful past, and it is up to Landon to help his mate start over. Yet if there is one thing the Lone Wolf Pack taught Landon, it is that mate bonds are stronger than anything. He has every intention of proving that to Angel, and to himself.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This story is actually a cut off from Lone Wolf Pack so I would start with their first book. It is an amazing story and I had a blast reading it. In fact the title was what caught my attention. I loved the fact that an alpha had to take anger management. However in this case it turned out perfect.

Landon just had a little tiff about the homophobic words being spoken from a total jerk. So he managed to wreck a bar afterwards. He sure wasn’t looking forward to going to it, but to his surprise in walks his gorgeous little mate. A mate that has him all turned on. A little dove shifter that has his heart beating and his hands trembling just wanting to get his hands on him.

Angel has had a hard life after he was turned away by his family for being gay. His father had in fact tried to tear his wing off just because he didn’t want him to be gay. He sees his mate and is instantly in love. Now he knows that most alpha’s are expected to have pups for the pack, so he assumes Landon would be the same. So lucky for him, that Angel is one of those who can do it for him.

I loved this book and look forward to the next story. It is a sweet, hot and damn sexy little book that had me wanting more than just a taste. I can not wait to get my hands on book two. I loved it and would recommend reading this book. It gives you gorgeous men, sexy alphas, feisty little mates, excitement, surprises and just a taste of what is to become.

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Tyler Powell’s life was irrevocably changed in a matter of minutes with one random act of violence. Just a few short hours ago, he was lying in bed with his husband, exchanging the rings painstakingly sought out for their perfection after being married for a year. Now Tyler and Spence lie broken, beaten, and dying on the floor of a public restroom. The victims of a homophobic beating.

Three weeks later Tyler wakes in the hospital, his memories are shaded, and his husband is dead. His assailants even took their beloved dog when they retreated, leaving Tyler and Spence for dead.

Officer Christian has been enamored with Tyler since the first time he saw him on the gurney in the ER, so fragile and broken, and the infatuation only grows as he spends more time with Tyler trying to solve Spence’s murder investigation. Chris wants to get to know the man who had the strength to survive, wants to keep him safe, but Tyler makes that hard by being secretive and hell-bent on getting revenge. The three assailants are still at large, but protecting Tyler from himself may be a harder job for Chris than solving the case.

This is a very dark and disturbing story. I will warn you that if you have certain triggers then this may not be the book for you. Please read the synopsis and now that Inman describes the attack in detail. That being said, it is an integral part of the story.

I really enjoyed how Inman showed Tyler as he muddled his way through life in the early days following Spence’s death. Denial, grief, anger, revenge, these are all human emotions that must be felt and dealt with in the wake of such a life-altering event. But there is also trust in another person to help you get through the ordeal, and eventually, hopefully, you learn how to love again.

I really enjoyed this story, as dark as the content was and as hard as Tyler struggled in the aftermath of loosing Spence, there was a beauty to him finding happiness again. The story is well written and gripping from the start, and kept my attention throughout its sadly poetic storyline.

I’d recommend this read for anyone that likes stories based in harsh reality with flawed characters that manage to find their way back from the edge with a little love and trust.

Review: This is the third book in this series and they need to be read in order.

It is a pretty good story but a bit hard to truly get into. I do admit though that it caught my attention from the moment I started reading and it kept it all the way to the end. However, the characters were what had given me the difficulties. It moves too fast with the characters.

Hunter and Rolan were from two different areas and were not encouraged to become friends. However once they met, they did indeed become friends, then lovers, then mates and in the end fireheart mates. Once it was known that they were together, they had come to the decision to leave their homes and make their way. All the while, the shade was trying to find freedom from its prison. Separated into three shards, it could be captured, but once it is together all bets are off.

The last shard had found a host, a human who would not live long. He needed the body of a wolven. Hunter was the one he chose and it was up to Rolan to get help. He had went to his friends and they searched for the answers. Would Hunter survive or would Rolan loose the man he loves.

It just goes to fast for me. If it had been more detailed and put into a longer book then I might be more inclined to love it. I would recommend it though, because there is nothing better than two gorgeous men, shape shifters, excitement, adventure, action, danger, and hot sex. I liked reading it and look forward to reading more from this author. It is an entertaining story that will give you a little bit of all the emotions.

Boy Goes to Wonderland…

After six months of hot-and-heavy dating, Alex is ready to say goodbye to the sex-drugs-and-dance-till-dawn lifestyle and settle down with the love of his life, Steven. He even bought an engagement ring. But when Steven finds an illicit party favor in Alex’s pocket, the powder hits the fan. Steven breaks it off, and Alex heads out to drown his sorrows—in Wonderland…

The hottest, hippest nightclub in town, Wonderland is where every boy’s dreams come true. Where the DJ, Hatter, spins the maddest tracks, the Caterpillar sells the trippiest drugs, and the Queen of Hearts sends every drag diva off with her head. Still, Alex can’t stop thinking about Steven—even while being seduced by a pair of twinks who are tweedlehot and tweedlehotter.

Things only get weirder when Alex learns that Steven is missing—and an anonymous phone call warns him that he’ll never see Steven again…unless he eats this, drinks that, and dives deeper down the rabbit hole of decadence. This certainly isn’t just another weekend—in Wonderland…

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Welcome to Wonderland, the hottest nightclub in town where booze, drugs, sex, and sweaty, sexy men are wall to wall in abundance. Alex swore to himself and to his boyfriend Steven that he would stop indulging in all the not so hidden treasures of Wonderland. But staying on the straight and narrow isn’t as easy as it seems, especially when being bad is as simple as a trip across the dance floor, being fondled by the hip gyrating twins, then winding up at Caterpillars table for a taste.

After Steven finds Alex’s stash in his pants pockets, he breaks things off. Alex retreats back to Wonderland and winds up cracked out of his mind, waking up in the twin’s bed the next morning. What’s worse is when he goes to Steven’s house to try to make things right, Steven isn’t there, he is missing.

The events that take place after Alex’s night of debauchery are both mind-blowing and fanatical. In a race against time to save Steven from the psycho that has kidnapped him and is playing a dangerous game of cat and mouse with Alex and their friends, Alex takes a mind-blowing trip down the rabbit hole into the secretive depths of Wonderland.

I loved how Browatzke took the bones of the classic Wonderland story, mangling and twisting the plot into his own twisted tale of sex, drugs, mystery, and intrigue. From the night club to the bathhouse and everything in between, Alex has to dig deep to decipher the clues he is given if he is going to bring Steven back home.

There were a few twists and turns that left me dizzy though, and a couple of times the flow from one aspect of the story to the next was jumpy or broken, which put a damper on the overall feel of the story. But the almost psychedelic feel of this book really kept me engrossed and entertained throughout.

If you, like me, are inexplicably drawn to anything and everything Alice in Wonderland-esque, then this is a must read for you. While I had a few issues with characters and plots within the story, overall I am impressed with the Authors ability to spin a tale, and intrigued with this world he has created. I cannot wait until May when the next book, Mirrorball, releases.

I am certain that Alex and Steven are going to learn that happy ever after is not always what it seems. Especially in Wonderland!

Blurb: A naked man. Beaten.

David can’t believe his eyes. After leaving the military to live as a hermit in the woods, the last thing he wants to find is another person. Even if did bump into someone, he hadn’t planned on the guy being stark naked.

The strange man…alone in the dirt in the middle of a rainstorm. Instincts kick in and David decides to bring the man to his isolated cabin. As he helps the battered man, David struggles to avoid noticing the man’s strong build and obvious nakedness.

But David is about to find out what this man truly is, and worse, that the man wants to stick around.

Will David avoid conflict and keep to his hermit life, or will he find new meaning in being with another?

Reviewer: Lisa
Review: I thought that this was a really cute story, but needed more details to it. I wished it had been longer, with a little more difficulties between the two men.

You learn more about David from the blurb then you do in that actual story. It drives me a little nuts with that. It should be expanded with more to the actual story. Put in a little trouble with other packs, a little war, and fight for his mate and so forth. Although there is no word about mates with these two men.

Bron is injured and is found by David in the woods, butt ass naked. David takes him, helps fix his wounds, and walks in to find a wolf in Bron’s place. A wolf that talks is a bit strange to me, but in the paranormal world maybe not so much. David allows him to stay and there is some major heat coming from them both. The hot sex is just a bonus.

Don’t get me wrong it is a very good story, but needs more to it. I am not much for a short story unless it has a bit to it that stands out. I would recommend it for a quick reading and look forward to seeing what else J.J. comes up with. It has sexy men, wolf shifters, a bit of excitement, sexual heat and desires.

 The Merchant of Death

 by

Lisa Henry & J.A. Rock

All’s fair in love and war.

There’s something rotten in the state of Indiana. When con man Henry Page takes it upon himself to investigate the death of an elderly patient at a care facility, he does so in true Shakespearean tradition: dressed as a girl.

FBI Agent Ryan “Mac” McGuinness has more to worry about than Henry’s latest crazy idea. Someone is trying to send him a message—via a corpse with a couple of bullets in it. He needs to figure out who’s trying to set him up before he gets arrested, and he really doesn’t have time for Henry’s shenanigans. Then again, he’d probably be able to focus better if Henry didn’t look so damn distracting in a babydoll dress and a wig.

But when Mac discovers that Henry has been keeping a secret that connects the cases, he has to find a way to live on the right side of the law when he just might be in love with the wrong sort of man.

You can check out THE MERCHANT OF DEATH at Riptide.

Blurb: Flynn Howard has spent most of his life on the street. Being a defective werewolf means that no pack will take him in. It’s nearing the winter holidays, the snow is getting ready to fall, and Flynn is hungry.

Then he meets Tanner Ford when trying to steal his wallet from him.

When Flynn realized the man he tried to pickpocket was another werewolf, he ran, but Tanner chases him down. When Flynn wakes up, warm and clean, and not smelling of sex, he has to wonder what Tanner’s game is, and why the man wants to spoil someone as unworthy as him.

Tanner knows his mate when he smells him, even if the younger man is a defect. He doesn’t care. His mate is clearly on his own, malnourished, and Tanner is taking him back to his pack so he can show Flynn that he has a permanent home, and if he wants, a life with Tanner.

Lisa’s Review: ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts

Each book in I Want to Bite on Your Ears collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

There is nothing better than a good paranormal romance with two gorgeous men involved. I have been waiting, not so patiently for this book. I love the way this book just draws you in and keeps you there. It gave me everything that I could possibly want in a story. I think among all of the guys on here, it is the defectives that I love the most.

Flynn had been booted out of his pack when he was just a child, and sent to live in the foster care system. When he was thirteen, he took off and has lived on the streets. Now most of us know what the streets are like, so you can imagine how it was.

Some of the shelters were good and honest, yet there was some that were downright evil. The one he had stayed at, he found himself either having to steal money to stay there or give his body away. That is how he met Tanner. He had tried to steal the man’s wallet. The problem was the man was actually a full blow werewolf. Boy was his ass in trouble.

Tanner had found his mate, only to realize he had stolen his wallet. Now intent on getting his mate to the pack doesn’t go the way he planned. I mean he scared the kid so bad he fainted. However, he was intent on not only protecting him but also showing him what a real family is like. Things are bound to heat up.

This is a fascinating story that has me laughing at parts and crying at others. I had a blast reading it and look forward to reading the next book. It gave me gorgeous men, cute mates, excitement, suspense, danger, and some hot sex. It gave me that and so much more.

I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me you won’t regret it.

Shorty’s Review: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts
Very well written story about Flynn, a defective werewolf, who meets his mate Tanner when he tries to steal his wallet. After taking him home, he learns what Flynn has been through and who has hurt him.

Such a heart-wrenching story of all that Flynn endured. But I’m glad Tanner took him out of the dangerous situation he was living and made Duncan pay for the abuse he caused Flynn and other homeless people.

It was sweet when Tanner finally confessed they were mates.

Hot sex between Tanner and Flynn added spice to this fantastic read.

Highly recommended.

 

Drawing the Devil by Jon Keys

Genre: Contemporary Western

Blurb: A heart can live a lifetime in eight seconds.

Ever since his father caught him with another boy and threw him out at the tender age of sixteen, Dustin Lewis has been fighting his way up the national bull-riding rankings. He’s on the brink of qualifying for the National Finals when he draws Diablo, a notoriously rank bull—and the ride goes bad.

When bullfighter Shane Rees frees Dustin from the rigging of the same bull that nearly destroyed his face, he comes dangerously close to dropping his guard. Shane knows the potential consequences of being gay in a sport loaded with testosterone-overdosed cowboys, and the resulting scars of mind and body have left him with little self-worth.

Their near-death-by-bull first meeting sparks an attraction that awakens every last one of their personal demons. Yet as the National Finals draws closer, so do they. But they’ll have to overcome emotional highs, near-tragic lows, and bone-crushing danger before love can bust out of the chute.

Warning: Contains man-on-man boot knocking, rawhide and raw emotions, badass cowboys and even badder-ass bulls. This ain’t your old man’s rodeo

Review: Dustin was kicked out of his home when he was very young after being caught with another boy. Both his family and the boy would have nothing to do with him. He lived with his best friend Todd and became a bull rider with Todd. Dustin has ADD and is very hyper.

Shane is a bullfighter. He has many scars from his job. Some are very visible, like one across his face. He is gay and not closeted, though he doesn’t advertise it either. His job is saving cowboys from the bull. After saving Dustin, he finds himself very attracted to the young bull rider. They become good friends. Could a hot young man like Dustin want anything other than a one off from a scarred up man like Shane?

This story had a lot going for it. I have to say I never really connected with either character. I do however like that they are unique… One is visibly scarred one is dealing with ADD. I did like the storyline and plot. There is a lot of hot, down and dirty, raunchy sex in this story. For me it was a bit of a turn off, but I am not saying it was bad; it just wasn’t my cup of tea. I will say about halfway through the story really picked up and I am glad I kept reading. Overall, it is a good story.

If you like, bull riders, bullfighters, drama, down and dirty sex talk, hot man-sex and a really good friends to lovers romance, this is for you.
