Professor Graham Darrius leads a double life, everyday he enriches the lives of students, but at night he struts the stage as Ebony Powers at Club Syn. The two personas cannot mix, which is an easy rule to follow until a sexy man from Iowa stumbles through the door.

Spencer Neil has never stepped foot into a gay bar and holy shit did he get more than he’s ever imagined. What did he know about drag queens, go-go boys and heated exchanges in dark corners? The world he lives in is academic and predictable. At least until he meets Graham, and sees that sometimes all is not what it seems.

The focus of this short story is to give readers further insight into the relationship of the twins fathers, Ciran and Rian. I’ve taken three scenes from Opposites that were cut short and elaborated on the shenanigans that ensued. I also focused more in the beginning on the relationship between Cirian and Rian, to give readers a chance to get to know them and the inner workings of their relationship a little better.

Twenty-nine-year-old Lucas Thompson is at the top of the corporate ladder. But when his lifelong friend and ex-boyfriend invites him to his last-minute destination wedding in the Bahamas, Lucas realizes his corporate success can’t hide his private loneliness. Nor will he be able to escape seeing his family at the wedding—and having to explain, yet again, why he’s rich, handsome… and still single.

Fate and a taxi ride change everything when Lucas meets the charismatic and clever Jack McQueen, who just so happens to be a male escort. Jack’s presence on Lucas’s arm at the wedding keeps questions at bay, but their pretend relationship turns into something more after ten days of sun, sand, and sex. And before the trip is up, both men will discover that what started as a simple escapade in paradise might just lead to their very own happily ever after.

Reviewer: Pixie

Blurb: Kitchen servant Yoli is one of only three men who know a carefully guarded secret about High Commander Koehen, the brilliant general who united their lands against a common invader. The enemy wants that secret, and they are willing to use either kindness or cruelty to obtain it.

Yoli must decide if his loyalties lie with the commander, who has shown him more affection than anyone in Yoli’s life, or with his own best interests. High Commander Koehen’s attention is capricious at best—he summons Yoli only when it is convenient for him, and Yoli knows there’s little hope of a future together. Is a glimmer of a hope for love worth sacrificing a chance for prosperity beyond his wildest dreams?

First Edition published by Silver Publishing, 2013.

Purchase Link: http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=7576

Review: Yoli is just a kitchen boy who has been trusted with one of the most well-kept secrets in the land. Even knowing the truth his loyalty lies with High Commander Koehen. Although Yoli is only called when it is convenient for Koehen, he can’t help, but dream for more. When Yoli is offered everything he has ever wanted, his loyalty is tested and he is torn between his dreams and his feelings. 

This story is great. A story of love, loyalty and limitations. If you were offered the world would you betray the one you love? Yoli is one of a very small number of people who know the High Commander Koehen’s secret and that secret has led to Yoli falling in love with Koehen. But, he knows that he will probably never have more than a few snatched moments in the dark, even though he secretly longs for more. When the enemy can’t break him with torture, the kindness throws Yoli for a loop and Yoli has to think long and hard on what he truly wants.

Oh, poor Yoli. He really goes through the wringer in this story. All he has ever wanted was to be a bard. But, he is stuck in the kitchen with no hope of ever getting out. Coming to the attention of Koehen does nothing but make Yoli dream. During the story this young man is faced with choices that would break a lesser man, and he comes to realisations about what he needs over what he wants.

Koehen is very much a more secondary character, but he never really fades into the background, and he has his own moments of soul-searching after his best friend points out facts to him.

The relationship between Yoli and Koehen isn’t what you would call a true relationship. Even when they sort things out between them, the story is set in a land where it is more than frowned upon. And with Koehen being the High Commander in a time of war, it could also cost them everything.

Yoli is a fantastic character who rapidly grows and develops.He has great insight for one so young and you just root for him. I must admit I found myself wavering alongside him. You get pulled along with Yoli’s hopes and dreams and you feel his disappointments. You understand his loyalty, but you can also understand the temptation he faces. He really is a great character.      

I will recommend this to those who love conflicting emotions, a medieval setting, great characters, a touch of loving and a happy for them ending. 

Prince of the Playhouse by Tara Lain

Tara Lain - Prince Of The Playhouse CoverTitle: Prince of the Playhouse

Series: Love in Laguna 03

Author: Tara Lain

Genre: Contemporary

Length: 240 pages

ISBN: 9781632169648

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (April 4th 2016)

Heat Level: Moderate – Explicit

Blurb: Driven by his desire to become a successful fashion designer and concerned with hiding his questionable past, Ru Maitland lets his obsession with action movie star Gray Anson on the big screen replace his social life. Then obsession and reality collide when Ru is asked to design fashion costumes for a special performance of Hamlet at the Playhouse in Laguna starring none other than Gray Anson. Gray turns out to be a compelling mix of shy and brash and, despite a high profile engagement to a female socialite, the signals Gray sends Ru have his libido doing the salsa.

Gray Anson has what most people only dream of—great wealth, huge fame, a job he loves. For that, he’s given up any semblance of privacy and the right to say no to the thousands of people who depend on him and the millions who love him. He sees everything he’s ever wanted just outside the bubble of his life, but how can he make the compromises needed to embrace it? When Ru’s shady past crashes into Gray’s paparazzi-haunted present, both men have to learn that sometimes the only acceptable compromise is the truth.

Portia’s Review:  ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Ru has had a crush on Gray…forever.

Posed to finally have his fashion designs recognized and shown at Spring Fashion Week, he doesn’t have time to give to anything else. Until, the owner of his community theater asks him to design the costumes for a summer play, staring…(gasp) Gray Anson.

I LOVE this series.  The stories weave together seamlessly.  So, whether you read them in order, or as standalones, you are guaranteed an enjoyable experience. No one creates characters like Tara Lain.

For me, this was Gray’s story.  Ru was already on his second lifetime, and despite his little quirks, is happy with his life.  Gray, on the other hands, feels like he is living a lie.  A very lucrative lie, but a lie nonetheless.

And for me it was about much more than coming out.  Professionally, Gray learns so much about himself. And I loved watching Ru support him.

Truth be told, with a name like Portia, I probably would have loved any Shakespearean story that Tara had chosen.

If you love sweet romance, well-developed characters, enough intrigue to keep you turning pages, and a crash course on Hamlet…The Prince of the Playhouse is a must read.

 

Aerin’s Review: ♥♥♥♥3.5 Hearts

I’ve been looking forward to Ru’s story ever since I first met him, because I have a certain weakness for flaming, artistic types and Ru is definitely that. One thing I can say with 100% certainty is that Ru didn’t disappoint at all! The other main character, Gray Anson, is who I had big problems with; his behavior was disappointing and infuriating, and I wanted someone else for Ru because Ru deserved better than being someone’s dirty little secret.

The writing was great, I can’t complain about that at all, and while some parts were totally ridiculous, they blended perfectly with the overall sense of silliness and amusement this series as a whole has. I really loved the complexity of Ru’s character, because what you see is a flaming, effeminate, in-your-face clothing designer, but what you get is a former gangbanger, slightly domineering guy who likes to give orders in the bedroom and who’s definitely a top. I just love the contradictions and the fact that they all fit together perfectly to make Ru a character who’s charming and who makes a lasting impression.

Ru has been fantasizing about actor Gray Anson for a few years now, and he couldn’t believe his luck when fate puts them in each other’s path. Gray Anson has taken the opportunity to expand his acting repertoire by accepting a role as Hamlet in a modern-day Shakespeare production. The instant attraction between them is obvious (to them at least), but Gray is so deeply closeted, his closet has a zip code of its own and Gray can’t imagine ever finding his way out; Gray is an action hero and we all know that gay men can’t play action heroes….do you detect a hint of sarcasm? Well maybe this is a real issue but I can’t imagine that people would refuse to watch a spectacular action movie just because the main character is gay; unless the actor has no talent for acting and is mediocre at best, which comes back to talent and not sexuality. But let’s suppose I’m that naive and have no clue what I’m really talking about.

There were a few plot problems that I couldn’t really believe no matter how much I wanted to. One of them is the reason Gray and Ru started spending so much time together; Gray couldn’t understand his character in the play and therefore completely sucked at acting. Let’s say that could possibly happen and nobody on Gray’s staff made sure Gray knew what he was getting into to start with. On what planet is Ru a professional acting coach? I get that there needed to be a reason for Gray and Ru to spend time together, but why couldn’t it be due to an inexplicable need to be around each other? Or the fact that they maybe enjoyed spending time together?

Also, I wanted to tell Ru numerous times that he should seek emergency medical services because an erection that lasts more than a few hours is extremely dangerous. Ru got so many erections that the current one didn’t even go completely away before the next one popped up again, that I became bored with his erections. That never happened before, but there’s always an opportunity to experience new things I guess. All these things I’ve been complaining about weren’t really all that bad considering I’ve started this book prepared for this level of silliness.

What I wasn’t prepared for and couldn’t really get past was Gray’s constant struggle with hiding his sexuality. I thought that Ru deserved better than having to see Gray with women all the time and being denied his true status. And the denial went all the way until the last chapter or so, and it really was disappointing and frustrating. It doesn’t happen often, but sometimes I thing two characters are not well suited together. This was one of those cases where I wanted someone else for Ru, and I believe Bernardo would’ve been a much better fit.

Overall a nice story, humorous and even a little fluffy, but despite Ru being my favorite character in this series, this was my least favorite book.

Reviewer: Aerin

Blurb: Jefferson Lee Davis, Holly Creek’s new Director of Publicity, is gearing up for the next big town event, the summer Rose Festival. The job is running smoothly, but the course of true love has hit a rocky patch. His hunky boyfriend, Sheriff Zane Yarbrough, is receiving mysterious phone calls he doesn’t want to discuss.

While Jefferson Lee is blindsided by jealousy, the second shoe drops with the appearance of a handsome stranger in the small tight-knit community. Needing answers, Jefferson Lee enlists his best gal-pal Clover Crofton to help find out what secrets Zane is hiding. When they land themselves in more trouble than Jefferson Lee bargained for, he and Zane face the first big test of their relationship.

Zane and Jefferson Lee must work through their trust issues if they’re going to make it as a couple, and Clover may just have a thing or two to learn herself.

Review: Spring Fever picks up roughly where Dogwood Days left off and it’s just as amazing as Dogwood Days, maybe even better! But, if you have any plans to read this without previously reading Dogwood Days, I’m afraid that’s not going to work. Spring Fever has the same cast of charming, funny, crazy, amazing characters as Dogwood Days and the main characters are still Sheriff Zane and Jefferson Leigh.

There’s a new guy in town and his name is Troy. You see, Troy is six feet of perfection. A blond hunk of a man who’s taking too much of Zane’s time. Jefferson Leigh just KNOWS something’s up. Because Zane is suddenly very secretive, unwilling to talk about Troy, and was seen at Troy’s house the night he was supposed to be away on duty. Is Troy someone from Zane’s past that is back and wants another shot at Zane? Well have no fear, undercover agents Jefferson Leigh and Clover will get to the bottom of this mystery!

If you’ve read Dogwood Days, you probably remember how hilarious and dangerous Clover and Jefferson Leigh are together. I had a smile on my face the entire time those two plotted and found ways to get in trouble. Clover is just as hilarious as you remember and they’re so ridiculously over the top they’re downright charming!

I want to move over there and move in next to Zane’s house, because I heard his blinds always stay open and there’s plenty of dirty things taking place in that house. Like Jefferson Leigh getting fucked against a wall. Holy fuck, I NEED to see that!!!

This  story is brilliantly written. Because, while I laughed with Clover and Jefferson Leigh, I also felt those icy fingers down my spine when Troy came around.

I would say this is almost a cliffhanger, because the story ends in such a way that makes it obvious there’s more coming up. Hopefully soon!

Don’t worry, Zane and Jefferson Leigh are just fine…

Blurb: He’s hot. He’s dangerous. And he can’t remember anything.

As the owner of Apple’n Pies, Joe Applin leads a quiet, uneventful life, content to spend his days serving customers who come from all over to eat his delicious homemade pies. Along with his motley crew—Bea, Elsie, and Donnie—Joe couldn’t be happier in his little kingdom of baked goods and java.

Experience has taught Joe that love is overrated—and at times dangerous. He has no intention of repeating past mistakes. But then he meets a mysterious, handsome man with amnesia, and Joe can’t deny something sweet is in the works. He isn’t one to take risks, not with his heart and certainly not with his life, but the more time he spends with the man he knows as Tom, the closer he is to losing both.

Review: I came across Charlie just a few months ago when I found out about the first book in her Thirds series and I knew that I had to read her stories. Damn was I glad to have gotten my hands on this book. She just has this way of giving you a story that draws you in and keeps you captivated till the very end. The characters are beautifully written with a lot of depth and details. My only complaint was that there was no pie around here to munch on while I read this book.

Joe is a sexy pie maker who would make even a nun drool. To top it off his pies would make anyone a happy camper. He runs his little cafe with a quirky old woman and two feisty teens. He didn’t know what he would do without them. At one time he had not known if he would have it. His ex-boyfriend’s father had sent some guys to do some damage to him. He still didn’t know who his angel was, but he always wanted to tell him thank you. One night he hears moans, only to find an injured man in the garden and knew things were going to get dicey.

Tom had been injured and was hiding. The only problem was he didn’t have a clue who he was hiding from. Hell, he had no clue who he was. All he knew was that Joe turned him the hell on and he would do everything to protect him and his little family of misfits. 

There are a lot of quirky and funny behaviors in this book. First off, always talking to himself, putting his head in the over and just blushing as hot as a fire engine. I loved Bea, and the two quirky teens. They were a great addition to this story.

I had a blast reading this and look forward to Charlie’s next book. This was a hit with me and I can guarantee that you will love it too.

I would definitely recommend this book.

Blurb: Teacher Dane Bernard is a gentle giant, loved by all at Summitville High School. He has a beautiful wife, two kids, and an easy rapport with staff and students alike. But Dane has a secret, one he expects to keep hidden for the rest of his life—he’s gay.

But when he loses his wife, Dane finally confronts his attraction to men. And a new teacher, Seth Wolcott, immediately catches his eye. Seth himself is starting over, licking his wounds from a breakup. The last thing Seth wants is another relationship—but when he spies Dane on his first day at Summitville High, his attraction is immediate and electric.

As the two men enter into a dance of discovery and new love, they’re called upon to come to the aid of bullied gay student Truman Reid. Truman is out and proud, which not everyone at his small town high school approves of. As the two men work to help Truman ignore the bullies and love himself without reservation, they all learn life-changing lessons about coming out, coming to terms, acceptance, heartbreak, and falling in love.

Review:  On the first day of school in Summitville High, two people’s lives will take a drastic change. Dane meets a young freshman that is being bullied horribly. That same day his wife is killed. Dane has been hiding his sexuality his entire life. This chance meeting with Truman that comes to school wearing gay pride shirts and is very effeminate looking makes him realize he needs to be himself now.

In the winter Seth, a new teacher, shows up and immediately catches Dane’s eye. He knows that a relationship with a co-worker is not a good idea. Afterall, he is still mourning his wife and raising his kids.

Big Love a story of thee man and how their lives entwined and enriched each other’s.  I have to add that Truman, the young man who is being bullied so harshly is an inspirational character. His mother also is inspirational. All mothers should be like her.

I liked Dane, as well. There is a lot of character growth as well. I liked Seth, but felt we didn’t get a lot of his character. I felt that was something missing from Seth and Dane’s relationship. Perhaps that it came at the end and seemed a bit rushed. I would have like more.

I also couldn’t help but wonder why the teachers and principle didn’t step in more to stop this bullying.

Big Love is a clean story with lots of characters. Lots of character growth and some bullying.

If you like clean stories, teachers, out and proud young men, unique characters, coming out and an all-over good romance this is for you!

Blurb: Before jumping into his first semester of college, Thomas Maloney decides to lose his virginity at a party to a stranger he’s sure he’ll never see again. Only the next day, he’s surprised to learn the same one-night stand will be sharing his dorm room. Thomas considers himself lucky, but his new roommate—not so much.

Closeted as they come, football jock Remington “Rem” Daniels is on track for a shot at the pros. Rem tries to play it cool and avoid falling for the confidently gay Thomas, which could hurt his chances. Dealing with their constant need to get in bed together wouldn’t be so hard if Rem didn’t have a girlfriend and Thomas didn’t have a conscience.

When she delivers news that will change Rem’s life forever, Thomas knows it’s time to move back home to Thornwood, Colorado. But neither the distance nor knowing Rem belongs to someone else helps Thomas get over him. Rem’s feelings haven’t changed either. When it comes down to love or football, Rem will have to make the hardest choice of his life and hope Thomas will still be waiting for him when he does.

Review: I came across Caitlin when she put out her first story and was fascinated by the worlds she created. At the time I had decided to keep an eye out for her stories so that I could grab them up. This story was fascinating to read and I absolutely loved the characters, however it had the one thing in it that, for me brings the ratings and the story down. I do not like cheating of any kind and can’t stand to read it. However that is my fault for not looking at the blurb for the book. Other than that issue, which is my issue the story was damn good

Tom had listened to his friends about losing his virginity. They had suggested going to a party and hooking up. The problem with this was that it turned out that the one he gave it to just happens to be his roommate. His very sexy roommate who just happened to have a girlfriend.

Rem is an ass and I am afraid my opinion of him will stay the same. He not only had Tom, but a girlfriend on the side. One he intended not to tell. Hell, he didn’t even love the girl. But, everything changes for them all when she gets pregnant. Hello?  Where were the condoms? I mean use a brain. 

This story takes place over a few years and it will tear your heart up with all that is going on. I mean, I hate to say it, but Rem is a loser and I absolutely wanted to just drop kick him off the cliff. However there is also a side to him that is endearing, also. I was glad for the happy ending, but it didn’t really end the way I wished it had. It just seemed to be missing something to me.

Overall the story was a fascinating read.
