Blurb: You can run but you can’t hide. Problems have a habit of following you, even if it’s only inside your head.

Ross decides to start a new life away from the grim belly of London, England, unable to stomach being a cop any longer. He tells himself he’s moving miles away to find himself a bed partner, but he’s lying. He has to. Facing up to the real reason he’s leaving isn’t something he can handle.

His last undercover job proved too much—his life was at risk—and if he stays in London he’ll likely end up dead. Nightmares plague him, his subconscious unable to switch the past off. So he moves to a ranch in America, thinking the new surroundings and different lifestyle will help him to heal—and to forget. What he soon realizes is he’s jumping from the frying pan into the fire…

Joe’s passion—that of caring for the horses—is the only thing that keeps him sane. He’s a surly man, and for good reason—a reason he hasn’t told a soul. Folks think he’s mean and unapproachable and suspect him of committing murder. More than once. Locals assume that Joe got let off the hook. Nothing could be further from the truth, but Joe lets people think what they will. He’s done with their speculation and sly looks.

When Ross and Joe meet, tension is rife. The air between them prickles with animosity as well as sexual tension. Both have a past they can’t get over. Both have skeletons in their closets they wish would turn to dust. And both have to make a decision.

Can they cast their fears aside and trust each other, or have the terrors they’ve experienced ruined them for love?

Reader Advisory: This book contains a scene of remembered non-consensual sex in a character’s past.

Reviewer: Cat

Review: Take two gay men hiding secrets…one from England showing up on a secluded ranch in the middle of nowhere and the other that seems trapped there and there is sure to be fireworks.

But will the secrets buried on the ranch keep them apart?

Ross finally is free for his job as an undercover cop in England. His last mission was too close to killing him and after being outed he decides to come to America and start a new life. Working on a Ranch with hot cowboys should be safer than dealing undercover with drug dealers…or at least that is what he thought.

I thought this was a very intriguing story. There is a lot of mystery and for the first half of the book or more I kept wondering who the real culprit really was actually I thought there would be a bit more twists than what there really were.

About halfway it took a different turn form the mystery and became more pure romance between Joe and Ross building a new life and Ross coming to terms with his past nightmares. I will say I did like the way the author tied up the loose ends at the end.

The story is well written and I was so hooked I read it in one setting.

If you like cowboys, undercover cops, suspense, a good love story and some pretty hot man-sex this is for you!

Blurb: Dirty little secrets can lead to public scandals and unexpected love affairs…

Malcolm Campbell is the director of a south Los Angeles organization focused on mentoring gay youth, and his nineteen-year-old nephew, Blake, is being sent to stay with him for the summer. Malcolm has always been a community and family role model everyone looks up to. But he also has a secret he never knew he had… until it pops up on the Internet.

Across town, in the closed and closeted world of Black Hollywood celebrity, pro-basketball player Tyrell Kincaid and R&B singer Tommie Jordan are public heroes in a very private relationship. After a series of indiscretions and slipups, the relationship becomes fodder for speculation and outing by the paparazzi and nationally-known gossip reporter Livonia Birmingham.

Despite living in two different worlds in L.A., Malcolm, Blake, Tommie, and Tyrell find themselves in the same arena, where they’ll have to risk it all to protect their hearts and their destiny.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: This is the first book I’ve read by Frederick Smith and since I enjoyed this wild ride into the world of celebrity, I really do want to read more from the author!

The story is about Malcolm, some years ago he changed his career from banker to become the director of an organisation that focuses on helping the young gay men of LA, called LADs (well, his little part of LA anyway).

It is through LADs that he meets pro-basket baller Tyrell who probably isn’t as closeted as we’d expect. Tyrell is with the deeply closeted rapper Tommie Jordan because not only is it a no-no for a rapper to be gay, it is especially a big no-no for a black rapper to be gay. Meeting Tyrell linked with a totally unrelated personal disaster snowballs into a very complicated life for Malcolm which puts his career in jeopardy.

Add into the mix that his 19-year-old nephew has been sent down to LA to live with him because Malcolm’s sister has deemed Blake too unruly (she’s a bit of a drama queen).

The fact that Tyrell is a pro-basketball player and there is also Tommie, a rapper, really makes you – well, it made me wonder anyway, just how many celebrities feel that they need to hide their sexuality from the public. I’m not sure if this was the intention of the author but this book more so than others really made me think about it, especially when you see Tommie’s manager pulling the strings in the background on more than one occasion. I think this was more a random thought on my part.

I love the culture of Black Hollywood and I love the melodrama surrounding everything that seems to be happening in Malcolm’s life. Malcolm’s attraction to Tyrell sometimes seemed forbidden and understated but at the same time it was both sweet and hot (sounds like I’m describing food, lol).

The pace is quite quick so you’ll not get a chance to get bored at all. The characters are complex and there are a number of them that play a major role in Malcolm’s life. To me this is the type of book that appeals to everyone, though I think it would particularly go down well with those who like the world of celebrity and LA.

Blurb: Scott Tate has a problem. When his brother Sawyer calls and asks to crash at Scott’s place for a few days, Scott has no idea that the past would surface so quickly. But a hush-hush crush this strong cannot be concealed for long.

Now, after spending most of his life pushing Sawyer away, Scott is faced with the toughest decision of his life!

ISBN: 978-1-925313-41-3

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Twin brothers Scott and Sawyer were close when they were younger. But as Scott grew up and realized his feelings for his brother were far deeper than the acceptable norm of a bond between twins, he started to distance himself.

When Sawyer comes to visit and camps out on Scott’s couch, the two are forced to deal with secrets they’ve kept buried for years.

This is a short, steamy read that is sure to cause a spike in your blood pressure. The content is “taboo” so if you have an issue with twincest, you might want to skip this naughty little read.

I quite liked it. There was a bit of drama, secrets being revealed, uncertainty with how those secrets will be perceived and even a quick pulse pounding moment of danger.

If you are a fan of Mercy Celeste or Max Voss then you’ll definitely want to read this one. A delicious little snack I’ll keep on my kindle to re-visit every now and again.

Now the same friends who helped Ben with the rescue are making a strong case that something about Artie isn’t right. When Artie verbally attacks his best friend, Ben is forced to acknowledge the unbreakable barriers surrounding Artie’s mind.

Searching for someone with the right gifts to help, Ben encounters a woman who insists there’s only one way—and one person—who stands a chance at saving Artie.

Reviewer: Cat

Review  You definitely need to read the series in order and I suggest the entire collection or you may feel a bit lost about some of these characters.

This story picks up where the last left off with Ben looking for Artie. Artie is a physic with special powers and though he is home he seems lost and withdrawn. Ben is determined to do whatever it takes to brig Artie back and keep him safe.

This story is so good that you can’t put it down and want more when you are done. There is so much action it keeps you flipping the page and sitting on pins and needles! I have no nails left!

Ben and Arties characters just get more and more complex as we go and their love is to die for!

If you like action packed series, collaborations, complex characters, vampires, demons, shifters, ghost dogs, you name it if its supernatural or paranormal it’s probably here! Plus it’s an awesome romance!

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I came across Bronwyn’s books a few months ago and I get a kick out of them. This one is short, sweet and damn funny. It is the first book in the series and I must say it was a surprise. I would have liked it better had it been longer, with more details and feelings into it. It came off as a story that was rushed.

Ben and Shad had taken a liking to each other. Ben thought it was a one night stand, that is until he started getting sick. What a kicker for them, he is pregnant.

The start of the book doesn’t lead into the story, just has them getting all bothered, and then straight to the hotness. Then the next thing you know they get the shock of their lives. It just needs to be more detailed, with a bit more suspense, not insta love but having a bit of a time at first.

I hope the second book is longer and has a bit more meat to it. Other than those issues, I had a blast reading it. It was just over too quick to get more than a taste.

Patricia Logan

Wendell Blackowl has spent all his life in the working cow horse show ring where toiling with sweaty cowboys all day is the fodder for wet dreams. Though privately he’s come to terms with his sexuality, publicly Dell’s had to build a façade. When his beloved horse Buttermilk dies, Dell finds himself at loose ends so he decides to pick himself up by his boot straps and do what he’s always wanted to do… open an environmentally friendly organic vegetarian café.

Pace Avila, well known music critic, has been drawn to Austin by the live music scene. When friends invite him to check out a fresh new dinner experience, Pace reluctantly agrees to push the deadline on his national column. He isn’t interested in vegetarian food or a restaurant with the cheesy name of Buttermilk Ranch Café, but the moment Pace lays eyes on the stunning cowboy chef, things begin looking up. 

When openly gay Pace walks into his cafe and his life, Dell realizes he’s tired of living a lie and tired of being alone. When Mother Nature throws an unprecedented storm at Austin, the muddy waters threaten to wipe out everything Dell’s worked so hard to build. He soon realizes that with a man like Pace by his side, love really can conquer all.

T.M. Smith

Victor Dimir moved to America with his traditional Romanian parents when he was just a child. His Romani parents taught him their traditions and how to be a shrewd business man. But it was the attention of a classmate at school that taught a teenage Victor about his sexuality. When he came out to his parents he knew it would be difficult for them to understand, but he never expected them to disown him.

Andrew Jones grew up with a single mom and his grandmother teaching him about life, he had an absentee father at best. The only thing the man ever did for Andy that stuck was buy him a camera for his thirteenth birthday. When Andrew went off to college on a scholarship to study photo journalism, he wound up falling in love with his Romanian roommate.

They became inseparable and wound up starting their own business together; a gay porn website where people could go and watch romantic gay porn instead of the rough and tough, or wham bam thank you man crap that was flooding the internet at that time. After ten years together they were still perfectly happy, they didn’t even realize something was missing, until they met a broken young man that needed a family.

Matthew Carlson was homeless, jobless and broken. He’d been on his own since he was sixteen when he ran away from home after being brutally assaulted by several other young men that he thought were his friends, and then being told he brought it on himself for being gay by his parents. Matthew has done a lot of things these last few years just to get by. When he finds the flyer for All Cocks, he decides to call and see where it leads. What has he got to lose?

Matthew has deep rooted scars that aren’t usually visible on the outside. But when he walks into All Cocks, both Victor and Andrew see them, they also see him. Can three men that didn’t even realize they needed each other get past the stigma of society to find a place of happiness, together?

*Advisory warning: This story contains a scene of sexual assault.*

Now he and his lover Lochlan are searching for a way to heal his people. When they receive a mysterious coded message promising hope, they make a desperate grab for it, and are imprisoned—by the very race they want to save.

On Lochlan’s distant homeship, a young pilot named Nkiruka faces an agonizing choice: stay with her lover Satya and live a life of happy obscurity, or become the spiritual leader—and the last and only hope—for the Bideshi. Nkiruka doesn’t want to lose Satya, but worse, she fears she lacks the strength to carry anyone through the coming storm, let alone her entire people.

Threads of chance and destiny draw the three together. With the fates of civilizations in their hands, they prepare for a final conflict that might be their only chance for survival—or that might destroy them all.

Sometimes curves in the road take you right where you belong.

Luther Almond’s life working the Bakken oil field is perfect—short-lived jobs, temporary housing, and easy hookups. That’s one reason he won’t move home when he inherits the lake house. When Erik Heat bends over to fix Luther’s pipes, his tattoos hint he might be up for more than working on the drain. The last thing Luther expects is to want more from this guy than one night.

Every time they’re together, Luther is more grounded and Erik more confident. When the lake house demands attention, Luther asks for Erik’s help. There he imagines a more permanent life, one where he stops running. But he wants Erik by his side. Can he find the courage—and the words—to ask?
