Heat

Chance has a job he loves as a fireman, an ocean view, and a great bunch of friends. There’s no reason to change until he meets Tucker, a paramedic who works his shift. Tucker might even be worth coming out for. But when Chance is injured, it takes a toll that could shatter everything they’re working to build. Can they get through the first test of their new relationship and come back better than ever?

Flashover

Chance and Tucker return when a family tragedy forces Tucker back to Kentucky to wait out the probate on the old homestead—but they can’t be together for long, because Chance can’t leave work. Their few stolen moments are plagued by adversity from the locals, problems in their personal lives, and even the weather as they try to settle the farm enough to leave it behind. Can they keep it together when the fire burns high enough to flash over their heads?

Flesh and Blood

After they endure those hardships, they still face the daily dangers of their jobs and the uphill battle to prove their love is as legitimate as anyone else’s.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Wonderful stories that tell about the lives of two hoy firemen, Chance and Tucker, and the love, struggles and everyday dealings they have. I loved each story as they were focused on that particular stories plot, which were well thought out and written.

I was captivated from the start by these men. Felt their frustration, heartache and joy depending on the situation they found themselves in. As is the case with an all male profession these two faced some not so nice people who were against them being together. But alas they dealt with what others thought and persevered as they should. 

The chemistry between was hotter than the fires they put out in their profession. Hot, steamy and all around sexy these men definitely heated up the pages. I truly loved this series and highly recommend it to everyone who loves stories about firefighters.

Fantastic read.

Reviewer: Lisa

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

Action pack, suspenseful, danger surrounding them, some very hot sex, kinky characters are just a bit of what you get with this book.  I am telling you that the pace is perfect, and the guys are protective as hell.  I have never come across a series that has so much to offer then this series.  It has been awhile since I have read one of these books and in the last 2 days that is all I have been doing with them, reading all night long.  I love the world that was created and the way it just flows off the pages makes it feel like you are right there with them.  Noah of course is my ultimate favorite little guy.  So damn sweet and let’s not forget sexy as hell.  However this book gives you two new guys who are mates, but there is some bad mojo in the way.

Xavier has a thing about big men and it usually doesn’t go the way he wants it to though.  So when he finds his mate, damn the man is hot.  That is until he finds out that Liam was once as evil as you can guess. Reborn he is now fae, but for some reason Xavier just can’t get over the other.  Not to mention when he gets closer or thinks about him, pain is all he gets.  Something is going on.

Liam has always wanted his mate but didn’t know why his mate hated him so.  Then the truth comes out and he must go back to Xavier’s pack to fix what has happened.  However here comes the twist, well you are just going to have to read this book to find that out.

I have never had so much fun reading, following and just jumping for these guys.  Hot is just one word to give them, and the way they are with each other is another plus.  The guys just seemed to work perfect with each other, and our sexy new couple is an added bonus to the group.  Not that they are new to the group but to the love fest. 

I had a lot of fun reading this and look forward to another winning book from this amazing author.

What happens when a veterinarian ends up a patient in his own animal clinic?

Dr. Dae Anderson needs to lose the deadbeat boyfriend who is holding him back, but Jack is determined to hang on to Dae—even if he has to resort to violence.

Dae has worked hard to fit in among humans, and if his secret gets out, he’ll lose everything. His veterinary assistant, Sean, might be just the man to stand with Dae… against Jack and the world.

Courage of the Wolf

The most painful changes don’t involve the shape of the body, but of the heart….

Just as Dae and Sean are settling in to life as a couple, Dae is contacted by his brother, who still lives with his former pack and who exiled him for being gay.

If he refuses to return to Wyoming, a sociopathic alpha will slaughter Dae’s family one member at a time. And deep down, Dae knows he must confront his past before he can truly have a loving future with Sean. First, they have to stay alive.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Now normally I would separate each story and give you a rating for each, but let’s face it they are both going to be the same. 

In Heart of the Wolf, our sexy vet has finally decided to end it with his loser boyfriend, whose only real job was to screw around on the doc.  The last time about got the man his ass kicked, which he deserved.  But our doc goes out running and well if you want to know more than you’re going to have to read it.  But his sexy assistant has been in love with the doc for over four years.  So now it is his turn to turn the tables, but he is in for one big surprise, our sexy doc is a werewolf.

Now in Courage of the Wolf, our sexy duo is going home.  It had a home coming that was not as happy as one would think do to the threat in Dae’s old pack, danger, suspense and murder.  He got a letter that was 3 months old from one of his brothers telling him they need his help.  The old alpha has definitely lost his mind.  Things are going to get a bit more interesting to say the least, but if you really want to know the juicy details go pick up this book.

Usually I am one for a full size story that isn’t split up like this book.  However it has some surprises that was a hit for me.  I loved the connection that Dae and Sean had as well.  I wasn’t as pleased with the second half, but only because it was not a lot of it I suppose.  It is a well written book that will have you on the edge of your seat or laughing your ass off on Sean.  He is a definite plus for any alpha. 

I enjoyed this book and think you will also. 

One Night With You by Megan Slayer

Heat Level: Low

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 3.5 Stars

Blurb: One night to find the man of his dreams in the least likely place…

Airman Tate Gibson thought going to a party at the local college with his friends would take his mind off of his troubles. He’ll head back to Korea in two days time—after the funeral of his baby sister. He’s always taken responsibility for her and he’s not ready to deal with her being gone. He wants a man to help him deal with his sadness and give him a reason to get through his deployment.

Raine crushed on his neighbor across the hallway, but once he spots the hunky airman his thoughts center on Tate. He wants to strip the handsome blue-eyed man down and lick him everywhere, but geeky guys like Raine never get the man. He’s stuck playing the perpetual wallflower.

Will one night tear them apart before things get hot or will it be enough to bring these two wounded souls together for a long-term engagement?

Reviewer: Veronica

Review: The day before the funeral, he decided to go visit his best friend, who is still in college. He needs a friendly shoulder to cry on. Someone that he can talk o about his loss, and the way his family is treating him. When he reaches his friend’s dorm, he’s hosting a very loud and boisterous party. He doesn’t stay, and decides to leave. He meets Raine in the hallway.

Raine considers himself a geek, and not someone that other guys want to have a relationship with. He was on the way to the party, when he meets the handsome Tate. They started talking and ends up in  Raine’s dorm room drinking beer. They start making out and have sex. Raine just can’t believe that someone as hot as Tate wants him. Tate spends the next couple days with Raine, and the he have to report back to work in Tokyo. Will the time that they spent together show Raine that yes, he’s worthy of Tate’s love, and although they keep in touch with each other. Will the distance bring them closer together?

This author did a good job on this story; it told the pain of losing a sister and the heartache of a parent blaming him for his sister’s death. A parent should never put that blame on anyone. Tate is on leave from the Air Force for a week for his sister’s funeral. She died in a vehicular accident, and his mom and family members blame him for her death. His mom had asked him to take care of his little sister, and he also blames himself, although he wasn’t the cause and wasn’t in the country.

Hoss McMasters has a working ranch, a bull riding career, a nosy momma, and a best friend he’s been in love with since he can remember. He’s a busy, happy cowboy, living the good life.

Then one morning he discovers a baby on his doorstep.

Well, Hoss does what any reasonable man would do—he calls his momma and his buddy, Sheriff Pooter, and they head to the clinic to see if Doc knows of any suddenly not-so-pregnant girls.

In the meantime, Hoss and his best friend, Bradley, have their hands full trying to care for an infant, run a ranch, and deal with the sudden confession that Bradley doesn’t hate Hoss for coming out to him in high school. In fact, Bradley’s been trying to catch Hoss’s attention for damn near a decade.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: For me this book was a war between absolute love and being rather annoyed.

I know the reason for it and that is, quite simply, that the writing style of BA Tortuga has always been something that I have trouble connecting with. But still I keep on going back because the type of stories Tortuga writes are what I like. However, the actual idea of the story and the whole “cowboys looking after a baby and finally reveal their feelings for each other” plot device – absolutely perfect. I also loved the touch of soap opera type of drama introduced when it comes to said baby’s paternity.

The story is about Hoss (seriously, this name, totally rubbed me the wrong way for reasons unknown) and his best friend since childhood, Bradley. They are both cowboys and have been secretly in love with each other years. One day, Hoss finds a baby randomly left on his door step and through some convoluted reasoning; he ends up looking after the baby girl with the help of his friend.

The story works in two parts, 1) Hoss and Bradley getting together, where one is out and the other is in the closet still, and, 2) looking after the baby and the mystery of where she came from. There was a twist at the end that came from nowhere, it’s a bit unbelievable, so people that like things to be more relatable may need to enter with an open mind. Seriously, when I say this is something you would see on Days of Our Lives /Neighbours/Coronation Street, believe it.

Regardless of my feelings of the author’s writing style, this was nevertheless an enjoyable read. I loved the plot, I loved the characters and I loved the setting.

Blurb: Lany
I had once thought that my life was the comic relief for the universe. Today, I was positive I had been right in my line of thinking. It was the only way to explain how I ended up sitting on the floor of my favorite Thai restaurant, surrounded by armed men and hostages.
It was my anniversary after all.

Salvador
I wanted to go to Lany the moment I stepped into the Thai Rose and saw him kneeling on the floor next to Eddie, but dealing with the people threatening him with guns came first. I didn’t want him in the line of fire if trouble started. Of course, knowing Lany’s luck, just being on the same city block put him in the line of fire.
He was a hot mess.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the Hot Mess collection features our very own sexy duo, Lany and Sal. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.   

I came across Stormy Glenn a few years ago and have been amazed by her stories.  I am always on the lookout for when she has a new one coming out.  Now I have to admit that I am not a fan of all her stories, but this series rocks.  I love the characters quite a bit and they are probably the only couple that I can read in different books. I have never been a fan of the same character in multiple books.  For some reason they just get boring and dull, but Lany never could do that.

Once again it is our fascinating duo’s anniversary coming up.  However this time Lany is not taking any chances.  However for Lany trouble always seems to find him.  Thank goodness for his sexy swat husband coming to the rescue.  Although I am not sure of the elephant, he might have asked for that one.  

It is a very entertaining tale that just keeps giving me laughter.  It is the perfect story to brighten your day and let’s face it there is nothing hotter than a man with a gun, well one on the right side that is.  He has the bad boy looks, a fierce love for Lany, speaks sexy Italian and can’t cook.  What more could a guy ask for.  Well let’s see hostage situations, the mob saving the day, a sexy cop, two best friends and a couple of cute baby girls.  

I love reading this series and cannot wait to see what trouble Lany gets into next.  I would definitely recommend reading this series.  Trust me you will get a kick out of it.

Cowboy Danny Boone—a name he made up one drunken night and has regretted ever since—harbors a big past and yearns for a small future. A short, bright career as a champion bull rider almost ended in his death when his homophobic father discovered Danny was gay. Now Danny longs for a plot of land he can build a ranch house on and enough money to make up for some of the education he missed.

Danny also hides a preference for beautiful femmes who like to top—a combo rarer than a unicorn. Then onto the guest ranch where Danny works drives San Francisco decorator Laurie Belmont, a young man so gorgeous he makes horses gasp, and so ballsy he almost kills Danny’s attacker.

Laurie’s trying to find his way out from under the thumb of a domineering mother, helpless father, and rich, privileged boyfriend. But no matter the attraction, their lives are worlds apart, and cowboys don’t ride unicorns.

Life makes no promises, and sometimes, you draw the short straw.

Landon Johnston’s life came to a grinding halt seven months ago, when he was diagnosed with terminal cancer.

With the encouragement of his grandmother, Landon works his way out of his slump and tries to live life while he still can.

Deciding he doesn’t want to drag anyone else down his morbid path, Landon gives up all friendships and denies himself love. It’s better this way, because all he has to offer is eventual heartache and sadness.

While traveling the world, Landon meets Abel Matheson, a free-spirited, unedited, and nerve-grating man who was supposed to only be a one-night-stand.

Despite Landon’s insistence that he can’t form a relationship with his current diagnoses, Abel is persistent and will not be ignored.

Fighting against all his ingrained urges to run, Landon finds himself drawn down the road he swore he’d never take.

Intimacy grows and bonds form…

Only… Abel doesn’t know Landon is sick.

How can anyone love a man with no future?

Telling him might cause him to run, but staying silent means living a lie. A lie which will only reveal itself in time.

Note: This story is a HFN or bitter sweet HEA read. It contains potential triggers for people who may be affected by cancer and its effects.

Lane, a newborn vampire, still feels the pain of betrayal. Two years ago, a faithless boyfriend took his life, and now, Lane’s Maker has also left him behind. The pain of separation burns strong when all Lane wants are arms to hold him and enough warm blood to satisfy his voracious appetite. At a shifter party, Lane is drawn to a hunky Alpha werewolf who tries to console him.

Parker is more than a thoughtless hookup. Since his family disowned him for finding boys just as hot as girls, all he wants is someone to love and look after. The sweet little vamp calls to his protective instincts, but he sure is jumpy. Cuddling with boys is new and delicious, but when this boy also wants him as a food source, things get complicated.

Vampires and shifters aren’t supposed to get along, and Parker’s rough dominance triggers bad memories for Lane. But Parker’s wolf wants Lane, and he knows he can give Lane what he needs. Can Lane learn to navigate his past and give the thing growing between them a chance? Or will the very real possibilities of heartache, abandonment, and even death, keep them apart?

How do you save a drowning man when that drowning man is you?

Jake Moore’s world fits too tightly around him. Every penny he makes as a welder goes to care for his dying father, an abusive, controlling man who’s the only family Jake has left. Because of a promise to his dead mother, Jake resists his desire for other men, but it leaves him consumed by darkness.

It takes all of Dallas Yates’s imagination to see the possibilities in the fatigued Art Deco building on the WeHo’s outskirts, but what seals the deal is a shy smile from the handsome metal worker across the street. Their friendship deepens while Dallas peels back the hardened layers strangling Jake’s soul. It’s easy to love the artistic, sweet man hidden behind Jake’s shattered exterior, but Dallas knows Jake needs to first learn to love himself.

When Jake’s world crumbles, he reaches for Dallas, the man he’s learned to lean on. It’s only a matter of time before he’s left to drift in a life he never wanted to lead and while he wants more, Jake’s past haunts him, making him doubt he’s worth the love Dallas is so desperate to give him.
