The Heart As He Hears It

(Perspectives 03)
by

A.M. Arthur

While most of his friends have moved on to “real” careers, Jon Buchanan is content skating through life as a part-time waiter and gay porn star. Firmly single thanks to a previous relationship disaster, he focuses his spare time on Henry, a dear friend dying of cancer.

And with Henry’s happiness paramount, Jon is on a mission to help Henry meet his recently discovered grandson.

Isaac Gregory hasn’t set foot outside for the past year. He has everything he needs delivered, and his remaining family knows better than to visit. When a complete stranger shows up claiming to be his grandfather—with a distractingly handsome younger man in tow—his carefully structured routines are shaken.

Despite his instant attraction, Jon senses Isaac is too fragile for a relationship. Yet tentative friendship grows into genuine companionship. And when Henry’s health begins to fail, they realize Fate brought them together for a reason.

No Good Deed

(A Philip Potter Story 01)
by

Michael Rupured

On Christmas Eve in 1966, Philip Potter, a kind-hearted Smithsonian curator,  wraps up his last-minute shopping. Meanwhile, his lover of several years takes his own life back in their home. Unaware of what awaits him, Philip drops off gifts at a homeless shelter, an act of generosity that will later make him a suspect in the murder of a male prostitute.

Following James’s shocking death, two men enter Philip’s life—and both drive yellow Continentals. One of them, though, is a killer, with the blood of at least six hustlers on his hands. And both are hiding something.

As Philip is about to discover, no good deed goes unpunished.

1st Edition published as “After Christmas Eve” by ManLove Romance Press, 2013.

The prequel, Until Thanksgiving, is published by Dreamspinner Press.

One hundred years later, in the wasteland formerly known as America, a broken man who goes only by the name of Cavalo survives. Purposefully cutting himself off from what remains of civilization, Cavalo resides in the crumbling ruins of the Northern Idaho Correctional Institution. A mutt called Bad Dog and a robot on the verge of insanity comprise his only companions. Cavalo himself is deteriorating, his memories rising like ghosts and haunting the prison cells.

It’s not until he makes the dangerous choice of crossing into the irradiated Deadlands that Cavalo comes into contact with a mute psychopath, one who belongs to the murderous group of people known as the Dead Rabbits. Taking the man prisoner, Cavalo is forced not only to face the horrors of his past, but the ramifications of the choices made for his stark present. And it is in the prisoner that he will find a possible future where redemption is but a glimmer that darkly shines.

The world has died.

Reviewer: Shorty

Review: This is book one in the Immemorial Year series.

This is not a romance book. Though it does have several kissing scenes and a couple of mentions of sex, but that’s it. This is a post apocalypse story set years after bombs are dropped destroying everything. The survivors are doing what they can to live in the changed world. But not all is as it seems and changes are coming.

Cavalo, the MC, keeps to himself for the most part. He is haunted by things from the past that he has seen and had to do. His only companion is a dog named Bad Dog and a robot named SIRS. Throughout this story it seems he has lost his mind with the way his companions talk to him. But I think it’s a way for him to have interactions with someone.

I imagine anyone having to go through, do the things Cavalo has had to do and seen that anyone would not be completely sane. With this being said he runs into a group called Dead Rabbits. They are vicious and don’t hesitate to kill in the most horrific ways. They are also cannibals according to the story.

Lucas is a Dead Rabbit who Cavalo captures and takes home with him. Lucas is unable to speak due to his throat being cut at some point. He is a very mysterious individual that I found fascinating. This story will blow your mind. You have people fighting for survival while others just take and take without regard.

Then you have two groups who will do anything to get Lucas. Why? I do not know exactly. I’m hoping the answers to several questions will come soon though as the first book ends with no answers.

Dark, twisted in ways and mysterious this book will have you on the edge of your seat as each chapter unfolds and more information is divulged in an awesome story of survival and secrets.

Cannot wait to read book two.

Highly recommended.

Blurb: A sexy stripper attempts to escape his dangerously obsessed boss while searching for his missing younger brother.

Stripping used to be fun, lucrative and a place for Dakota to practice for his professional dancing career. But the owner of Glitter Boys wants Dakota for himself and will stop at nothing to possess him. When his thirteen-year-old brother runs away from home to escape their abusive father, Dakota is determined to find him before something awful happens to him on the streets.

Patrol officer Reed hasn’t been attracted to a man in a very long time, but when he’s called to an assault in progress at the LGBTQ teen shelter, a young man approaches him, begging for help in finding his missing brother. An instant spark occurs, but he pushes it away. When the same man is attacked outside a strip club later that night, he discovers the desire is mutual.

As the two men learn more about each other and become closer, the specter of his obsessed ex-boss remains. In addition to that, Dakota has to fight the system to gain guardianship of his brother and keep him out of foster care. Dakota doesn’t know if the hunky cop he’s fallen so hard for can handle a relationship with an ex-stripper struggling to raise a teenager. But, will Reed be able to give up dating women for good and dedicate himself to their new family?

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of sexual intimidation, scenes of mild physical assault and threats of sexual violence.

Publisher’s Note: This book can be read as part of a series or as a standalone novel.

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Reed has his hands full with his job as a patrol officer for LVPD and weekends with his teenage daughter. Too full for a love life,that’s for sure. That is until Dakota walks into his life while looking for his younger brother that has run away from their abusive father.

Dakota has a lot on his plate as well. Dance classes fueling his dream of being a professional dancer, a boss that is a little too hands on, if you get my meaning, and of course, his little brother. The attraction is immediate, intense and mutual. Dakota feels comfortable and safe with Reed, while Reed feels very protective of Dakota.

Not long after they meet the two are sharing a bed, quickly after a home, and even faster each other’s troubles. Including Dakota’s ex-boss that thinks No means Yes and feels that he has a claim on the young dancer, regardless of his relationship with Reed.

I had one teensy little issue with the story, the insta-love aspect. It was conveyed well with Reed having only ever been with the one guy, his ex, Mark.

Then there was the issue with his ex-wife and comments she would make, again explained well due to the fact that she feels Reed isn’t Bi, he is gay and wasn’t honest with her.

That coupled with Dakota being younger and somewhat impressionable, Reed sort of being this knight in shining armor kind of guy for him. The relationship moved extremely fast though.

Overall I still quite liked this book, but of course, its Morticia Knight one of my favorite Authors. I really like the way she can write stories about varying aged characters and make each and every one relatable and believable. She has the teenage angst down. Reed’s daughter when they were camping cracked me up.

The older, protective, adoring side of Reed and the confused, but loyal part of Dakota that just wants to dance, be in love and loved, and take care of his little brother.

Definitely worth a read.

While the story can be read as a standalone book, reading the series in order should probably be considered so you will quickly recognize key characters from the other books.
