K.A. Merikan

— Faking their own death was the easy part. —

After months of recovering from his injuries, Seth struggles with who he has become. Afloat in a reality he never planned, he tries to find the lost pieces of himself again. Find the purpose, motivation, and strength to get back into shape. He is sick and tired of being a burden for Domenico, who seems to have it all together. When Domenico’s jealousy pushes them into the spotlight of a biker gang with connections to their former mafia family, Seth decides to step up, and make his own decisions, no matter what risks they might entail.

Domenico Acerbi can’t trust anyone. Nightmares of Seth’s torture are still haunting his dreams, and if he and Seth are to leave the country quietly and disappear off the mafia’s radar, he needs to stay in charge and keep everyone under control. What he doesn’t need is Seth giving him attitude, keeping secrets, and distancing himself for no reason. And as if Domenico didn’t have enough on his plate already, Seth forces him to help some hooker. Being stuck in the swamp with a kid hunted by a bunch of bikers is not Domenico’s idea of laying low.

Drew Jackson seemed to have it all. He has a family who loves and supports him, a tight circle of friends, and is a rising star with the Milwaukee Mavericks. Then, it all begins to unravel. Cam, the only man he’s ever loved, falls head over heels for Drew’s teammate. He makes a critical mistake in the playoffs that he’s not sure he’ll be able to recover from. And then, his world really crashes around him…

Eric Sapp may no longer play for the Mavericks, but he’s still one of the guys. No one could have imagined how much his life would change when he agreed to help his former teammates mourn the end of their run for the pennant. After stopping a brutal attack, Eric is forced to face the feelings that’ve been growing for his roommate, Drew. That’d be much easier if Drew wasn’t hell-bent on pushing everyone away as he recovers.

Neither of them were counting on Bryce Shaw. He and Drew enjoyed the one night they spent together, but knew it was unlikely they’d be anything more since they lived in different parts of the country. After Bryce is relocated to help a failing LGBT homeless outreach, he wants to explore something more with the Mavericks’ short stop.

As much as Eric wishes he could be the one to help his friend, he knows Bryce holds the key to Drew’s recovery. Will pushing the two back together be the biggest mistake of his life or will they all learn there is strength in numbers?

(Truth or Dare 01)

Lee Brazil

Mischa knows his brothers are up to something. He doesn’t realize it will lead him to Donovan Holloway and change his carefree lifestyle forever.

Having grown up in a free-love hippie commune taking care of the parents who should have been taking care of him, Donovan Holloway, advertising executive, newly made vice president of the company where he’s worked for twenty years, has come a long way. He’s worked hard to put himself through school and achieve the American dream. All he’s ever wanted is a normal family life—house in the suburbs, two cars, two kids, a shaggy dog. A family to come home to, to care for, to care for him has been his dream since he was a small boy.

Green-eyed, liberally pierced, black-haired, Mohawk-wearing spoiled youngest son of a Hollywood producer and his actress wife, Mischa Blake has made a terrible mistake. In a fit of childish pique, he’s accepted a dare from his older brothers. The dare? Live on his own, supporting himself completely, for a year without accessing his trust fund. No problem. Except Mischa has never worked a day in his life, hasn’t finished college, and has absolutely no skills to bring to the table.

When he sees Donovan’s ad for a housekeeper/gardener, he has nothing to lose by applying, because really…how hard can it be?

House Keeping has been re-edited and revised.

Blurb: Derek Sawyer thinks he has it all—a high-salaried position, a boyfriend, a dog, even a new cabin on the lake—until a business trip with his manager and best friend, Victor, shatters his world.

One night of drunken horsing around in their hotel room leads to the most intensely personal violation Derek has ever endured. As if the humiliation of working under his attacker every day isn’t enough, Victor reports Derek for sexual harassment. Now he’s without a job, without a boyfriend, and the mortgage on the cabin is due.

Officer Russ Thomas has worked with rape victims before, and it doesn’t take him long to sort out the truth in Derek’s tale. With his support, Derek finally reports the crime, months after it happened. But restraining orders and lawyers further Victor’s anger toward him, and even though a relationship develops between Derek and the policeman, Russ can’t be there to protect him all the time.

Reviewer: KathyMac

Review: Violated, by Jamie Fressenden, is an in-depth look at what a man goes through after being the victim of a sexual assault/rape. I think most people probably assume men never go through this type of assault, but it’s just as likely to happen to men as it is to women.

Derek has been with his fiancé, Tim, for 5 years but their relationship is pretty rocky even on the best of days. Tim is constantly allowing jealousy to rule his thoughts and seems to always be looking for any reason to accuse Derek of cheating. He comes across as insecure, self-absorbed, and a tad controlling.

Derek puts up with it because he loves him, although I’m not sure he is IN love with him but, he is safe and comfortable, and he keeps thinking it will get better. I felt like Derek needed to have a stronger backbone when it came to Tim. I don’t think things are going to improve much after the 5 year mark if they haven’t already.

Convincing Tim to buy a cabin away from the city for peace and relaxation had Derek hoping they could enjoy some time together away from their hectic week. As soon as they meet, Russ, the neighbor, Tim turns into the ass that he is and thinks Derek will cheat on him.

Russ is a police officer who loves his dog and his cabin and wants someone to come home to each day. He dates but never seems to find anyone that he connects with that wants the same things. He finds Derek attractive and he likes his friendship, but he would never make a move on a man in a relationship.

Derek and Victor have been best friends for 20 years, and even though Victor is his boss, he is still the rude and crude friend he’s always known. When they have to go out-of-town on a business trip, too much alcohol allows Victor to assault/rape Derek.

I can’t help but think Victor would have done this eventually because he is crude and he took advantage of being drunk to force himself on Derek. His philosophy was Derek wanted him, has always wanted him, so he gave him what he’s been after. No…it doesn’t work that way and someone guilty of their actions always looks for an excuse to compensate for their behavior.

Derek is traumatized by what happens but he doesn’t tell anyone. This goes on for months until finally Victor feels threatened by Derek’s accusations so he files a complaint first against Derek. He tries to confide in Tim about what happened, since he has now lost his job. But, Tim doesn’t believe him and basically throws him out of his life.

Tim, imo, had been waiting on an excuse to move on without Derek and now he has one. Being 5 years into the relationship held no weight with him, at all.

The author shows Derek struggling to get on with his life after the assault. I think he hit the nail on the head with his emotions, thoughts, and actions. At times, I actually felt the fear that was consuming Derek. Every look or touch now has a different meaning and simple things he used to do… like using the gym showers after his workout, now cause major anxiety.

Russ is very patient and understanding with Derek. He wants to help him work through his fear and protect him. But, he can’t be there all the time and Derek, on more than one occasion, resents the fact that Russ is there waiting to step in and save him.

I don’t think it would be fair for me to say how he should have handled the situation or how he should have felt. No one knows how you would behave until you are in the same situation yourself. I do think the author was able to show that it is a process. It takes time, years even, and maybe never – to fully get over something of this magnitude. You probably just learn ways to deal with it and hopefully can build trust again with people closest to you.

Derek and Russ are a slow burn and they are trying to make it work. In fact, it has been three years since the incident and Derek is still working at getting past some of his fears. I appreciate that the author didn’t sweep this under the rug like nothing ever happened in order to wrap up the ending.

I find it hard to say I enjoyed this story because how can you enjoy reading about someone suffering from rape. I will say that I think the story was realistic and believable and I think the author showed the emotions very well. I became tense and caught myself holding my breath a few times depending on what was happening to and/or around Derek.

I wouldn’t call this a romance story either, although hopefully Derek and Russ can find common ground and will continue to work at building their future together. There isn’t really any sex in the story and it was appropriate for there not to be considering the fear that Derek held.

Some of Derek’s problem with being able to come to grips with what happened I believe stem from his childhood and upbringing. I would have liked to see a little more of that brought out in the story and maybe seen more character development with Derek.

The writing was well done and the execution was good. There could have been some things left out of the story that weren’t relevant, but overall the aftermath is very believable and causes you to really think about the issue.

Review: First off the ending sucked. It just left me hanging big time. I was glad to find out that this is part of The Seattle Chronicles so maybe it will continue.

Josh wanted to live with his boyfriend Brandon, so to do that he needed to sublet his apartment. Nathan hated living at home, so he wanted to live on his own. The apartment sounded great. Brandon wants to marry Josh, so they decided to have a stripper at the bachelor party. The thing is Jamie is sick so he con’s his brother David into doing the deed. Things start to heat up really fast.

This story was a blast to read. I hated the ending as I said, because now I wanted to know how David and Nathan are. I had a lot of fun with this story and look forward to the next one.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Shifters and Lovers collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

I have not really read any books by this author but the first to this series. I was fascinated with the way the men just flow together. There were only a few problems I had with the story, but they are not major for me not to like the book.

The first one was the actual ending. It seems like it just drops off which didn’t hit me right. I felt that it could have continued to make it more enjoyable. Also the fact that they don’t have mates drives me nuts. Shifters should have mates to me.

Jordan left his pack after he was being forced to marry a woman. The man was as gay as could be, so no women for him. So now he protects others, but he had not expected to actually fall for the one he is assigned to now. However he felt it better to protect Rick from a stalker than get into bed with the man. Yeah, like that is going to last long.

Rick is an amazing actor, but now he has a stalker out for him. For an actor he is down to earth, but he takes one look at his bodyguard and damn did he want him. Too bad the man was fighting the attraction between them both. Looks like it was going to take a bit of work to get his man. That is if the stalker doesn’t get him first.

I had fun reading this and look forward to the next book. I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Review: Each book in the Whitedell Pride collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

I love the way this author 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 Catherine. The characters are beautifully written with big hearts, however if you cross them, they have no problem putting you down.

To me there is nothing better than a good romance, but when it is a paranormal then it hits higher marks to me. To top it off, when you add in the fact that one of the guys is pregnant, you in for a moment of laughter. I love them especially when there are some gorgeous men in some kinky situations.

Troy and Emery were mates. Yet they hadn’t even said much more than hello to each other. Troy had been kidnapped while he had been walking home one night. The scientist experimented on him and changed his DNA. He now had a harpy inside of him. To him, he was nothing more than a monster now. However when Emery finally forced them to be near each other, Troy was pissed to say the least.

Then he found out that they were mates, and he thought he would never be left alone. So he jumped at it. I don’t think he expected the final outcome to his plan.

Emery knew that his mate was having a difficult time. He had started out a normal human male, that now ended up with harpy inside of him. Harpy’s were also female. Emery knew what it felt like to be different. He was half shifter and half vampire. He had lost his entire family in the war. He wanted his mate, he wanted a family and he knew he wouldn’t let them go. He just was not expecting what was going to happen next.

I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series that you can’t put down and have to read more than once. It is the perfect story for me and gave me all that I needed. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story. I had a blast reading it and I can’t wait to read the next story. When Catherine puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up.

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

Blurb: The road to recovery is never easy, even when you’re just an innocent bystander to someone else’s addiction.

For Jack, it’s especially hard because he blames himself for his son Rick’s drug problems. It took Jack over half his life to admit to himself (and his wife) that he was gay, but years later, he still carries guilt over what his realization did to his son.

He never thought Rick’s treatment would help him rehabilitate too, but when Jack meets Seth, the man trying to help his son get back on his feet, it’s the breakthrough he never knew he needed.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This is a new author for me but I have to tell you it was pretty damn good. It is very tenderhearted and might make you cry at some parts of it.

Jack had been married once and even had a son. He had tried to make it work, but he had one little problem, he was gay. He had come out and blamed himself for all of the trouble he had made.

One of those was the fact that his son Rick was a drug addict. So when his son went into treatment, he was surprised by the man who was helping his son. A man that he wanted. It would seem that Seth had the same idea.

I had a blast reading this and would definitely recommend it. It is not one of my normal types of stories that I would read, but the cover just pulled me in. Then I read the blurb and new I had to see if it was as good as it sounded. Let me tell you it was even better. I do wish that it had been longer though with so much more.

I loved it and look forward to seeing what other books this author has out.

Blurb: Audie Barrack is in it up to his elbows with a sick calf when his son’s school calls. Seems Grainger has gotten into yet another fight. When he walks into the principal’s office, he’s shocked to find his son has been fighting with a little girl named Randi.

A little girl with one blind dad and one dad who recently passed away.

Dixon has lost his sight, his career, and his husband. Thank God for his brothers, Momma and Daddy, and his little girl, or he would simply give up. The last thing he needs is for Randi to start trouble at school, especially trouble that puts him in contact with another dad who might expect him to be a functional human being.

Dixon is struggling to live as a blind man, Audie is terrified someone might see he has a closet to come out of, and everyone from the school to both men’s families is worried for the men and their children. Unless they get themselves together and commit to change, neither of them stands a chance.

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Audie lives his life under the radar. A single father to a young son whose mom abandoned him, practically at birth, he keeps his sexuality a secret from everyone but his family. Everything changes when Audie gets a call from school that his son, Grainger, has been fighting with another student.

Dixon and his daughter Miranda, Randi for short, are still in mourning over the loss of a loved one. Not only did Dixon loose his lover in the wreck, Randi lost her other daddy and Dixon lost his sight. Now he spends every day in darkness, just trying to put one foot in front of the other and learn how to live again. Imagine having everything you ever dreamed of; love, life, happiness and a family; and in an instant, it’s all taken away.

Audie winds up befriending Dix, inviting him and his daughter to Grainger’s birthday party in an attempt to help his son make new friends. It’s a rough start at first, Grainger determined not to like the little girl who socked him a good one. Eventually though, the four of them become inseparable. Audie begins teaching Randi how to ride horses while Dix teaches Grainger how to play guitar. And the two men, well they teach each other how to love and live again.

I was completely engrossed in this story five minutes in. The storyline was totally fun and care free. Of course there are some bumps in the road. Dix is bitter and lonely but once he opens his heart and lets Audie in, everything changes. Audie hasn’t lived in the closet per say, everyone just assumes that since he has a son he is straight; he does or says nothing to change their minds. But meeting Dix awakens something inside him he didn’t think he would ever experience again.

The difficulty these two face is merging their different life styles and blended families. The most strife and discord comes from their own mothers. Now that they’ve found happiness and a man who not only accepts them, faults, blindness, small children and all, they aren’t about to let anyone keep them apart.

Narrated by Paul Morey and if you follow my reviews, you know I adore his voice. He has this country gentleman tone that he uses for Audie and it is absolutely perfect. I especially liked that I could feel Dixon’s frustrations in the way Morey voiced him, it gave the story and the character so much more depth.

Tortuga definitely did her research into the specifics of living life without site. Little details like the other senses becoming stronger, the anger and frustration over not being able to visualize something… I really enjoyed that she went that extra mile for the story.

I would recommend this audio book to anyone that likes cowboy romances, hopeless romantics and fans of Morey’s work.
