Mickie B. Ashling

Retired polo players Preston Fawkes and Konrad Schnell have finally found the happiness that eluded them for years. Their stud farm is a big success, and their marriage couldn’t be healthier. Unfortunately, this idyllic life is disrupted by several unexpected sources. 

Paloma, Preston’s twenty-one-year-old daughter, is determined to be a 10 goal player before she turns thirty. Bandi, Konrad’s son, dreams of starting a family with his partner, Ned Temple. Paloma offers to surrogate if her father and stepfather come out of retirement and team up with her for one season.

Preston and Konrad would do anything to make their children happy, but they’re confronted with a stumbling block. Trauma specialist Dr. Rayne Carlisle refuses to sign off on the necessary paperwork unless Preston agrees to be his submissive for one week.

Caught between the proverbial rock and hard place, Preston and Konrad deal with disgruntled lovers, demanding children, and old enemies in this sequel to Ride-Off

Release date: 8th April 2016

Dare to Hope

(All Cocks 04)
by

T.M. Smith

Tristan is the second oldest of the Brennan brothers and the odd man out. Most of the Brennan men have careers in law enforcement, but as a psychiatrist, Tristan chooses to help people in a different way. Quiet and restrained, he is content to hover in the background of his more gregarious brothers. Then he meets two men, each broken and damaged from losses beyond their control. 

Gabriel Simenson is mourning his lover’s death. The random act of violence that took Gio’s life has left everyone at All Cocks reeling. The only thing keeping Gabe from drowning in misery is the friendship he’s forged with Micah, the newest model at All Cocks. He continues to struggle, and at the urging of his All Cocks family Gabe agrees to counseling with Tristan under one condition: Micah must go with him. 

Micah Solo can relate to unbearable loss, having lost his leg and so much more in Iraq. The past two years he has been alone, adrift and vulnerable — the memories of war haunting his dreams, spilling over into his daily life. At All Cocks, Micah has found the acceptance he craves and the family he lost, but still he yearns for happiness and peace within. 

The friendship between the three is instant, the mutual attraction evident. They circle each other, wanting more, yet unsure if it is truly possible. Is life the mundane reality they’ve each come to accept for themselves or do they dare to hope? 

The All Cocks Stories is a series set within the world of online gay porn. 

*Warning* Micah’s PTSD is told in detail, including flashbacks to his time in Iraq.

The Timpanist and the Stagehand

by

Ava Hayden

Ren Murphy is a stagehand. He’s also a loyal friend, a gifted musician, and an inspiring teacher—but most people don’t see past his job. Ren knows that crushing on the Oilton Philharmonic Orchestra’s principal timpanist, Christoph Theoharis, is a waste of time. Christoph brushes off highly eligible would-be suitors regularly. What chance would a stagehand have? Christoph doesn’t even notice Ren’s existence—until one fateful night when chance or luck or maybe fate gets Ren Christoph’s undivided attention.

Old betrayals overshadow both men’s lives, yet each sees something compelling in the other, something that won’t let either walk away. Ren and Christoph may be each other’s best hope of finding a happy-ever-after, but to do that they’ll have to forgive old wrongs. They’ll have to let go of the pain in their past before it destroys their hope for a better future. Most of all, they’ll have to find a way to believe—in possibilities and each other.

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts

After being outed in an especially brutal way and briefly running away from home, Micah Johnson has sworn to get his life back on the straight and narrow.  Well, not so much straight, but you know what he means.

Unfortunately the path to redemption is not an easy one.  With fights at school and on the football field and an all-round snarky attitude as his number one defense mechanism, will Micah survive the school year and the training camps to achieve his dream of making the national draft and becoming a professional AFL player?

His mentor, Declan Tyler, believes in him, but Micah wishes he had the same confidence in himself.  Only time will tell if the ongoing reformation of Micah Johnson will be successful.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: The Ongoing Reformation of Micah Johnson is an awesome book. I’m just going to state that fact outright. I will admit that part of the attraction of reading Sean Kennedy is that I love reading Australian authors, yet at the same time I also love his writing style. It is just so easy on the eye and easy on the brain to process.

Not only that, for me this book was refreshing because normally when I read sport/young adult MM novels, it’s sports that are generally not on my radar – i.e. gridiron, rowing and ice hockey, although I love those books too. Here we are in the world of Aussie Rules, AFL, football and I at least am familiar with the rules!

Although to be honest, I don’t like or follow AFL, does that mean my citizenship gets revoked?!

Anyway, before getting to the actual story, I think I will give a few warnings as there are themes here that are definitely not to the liking of everyone. 1) As I said, this one involves sports, 2) it is a young adult story, so no heavy sex, and 3) something which I know is important to a lot of people, this is not really a romance story, although there is the slightest hint of one.

However, none of this mattered to me in what shaped up to be a thoroughly enjoyable read.

The book is narrated by titular character, Micah Johnson. He’s a young guy – around 17/18 years old – who is basically trying to grow into his own skin. He had a difficult time coming out, as mentioned in the blurb. In his own words he is a reformed arsehole, though let’s face it. He’s still a bit of a sarcastic arse with a twisted sense of humour which I totally love and totally relate to.

Though things are looking up for him, he’s still having some issues at home and at school. But he has great parents and a cheeky younger brother, as well as some friends at school which include a straight guy, a lesbian and the new chick in school who happens to be bisexual. However, with life moving ahead – school finishing up and attending AFL draft camp (it’s here that there is a hint of romance on Micah’s horizon), things are busy and it’s up to Micah to stay reformed.

Readers and lovers of Sean Kennedy’s books Tigers and Devils and Tigerland may be excited to see the appearance of Dec and Simon who had previously battled the fickle world of AFL and being openly gay (seriously, something that the AFL really needs in real life!). Dec especially is there, filling the role as mentor to Micah as he prepares and works towards being drafted for the upcoming AFL season.

This is a really fun and uplifting book. Micah meets a number of interesting people along the way as we see him develop into a man through the course of the book. Do I see hints of an upcoming sequel at the end of the book? I sure hope so, I’ll glad go back into Micah’s world and see how things go for him professionally and personally and perhaps even romantically!

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  I have had a chance to get to know what this author’s work is about and I have to say that it is fantastic. She added in a bit more to this story that shows what it is like to have PTSD. I loved that there is some humor in such a serious toned story.

Although I do have to admit that the porn parts I could have done without. I have never really liked a book that had a lot of sex and multiple partners so I knew that if I wanted to read this story I would have to overcome that part of me. I was glad that I did too. Otherwise I would have missed out on a great story.

Gabe and Micah work for Cocks, but there is something that binds them together even stronger. Gabe lost his lover to a senseless death and had trouble dealing with it. When he met Micah, he realized he has found a good friend. Micah had been in the army when their vehicle had been bombed. Micah had not only lost his lover to the explosion but he lost his left leg. They were both drowning and needed help.

Tristan’s family had been disappointed in him when he wanted to become a psychiatrist, instead of a police officer. He wanted to help people who were hurting. He was glad to be out of the lime light with his older brothers. However he had not expected to fall in love with these two sexy men.

I loved how TM Smith added in Micah’s struggles from the war. To see his dreams, nightmares and reactions to loud noises brings what many military deals with after the war.

I enjoyed this book quite a bit and was proud to have had a chance to read it.

I would definitely recommend it.
