Silver Ties

(Silvers 03)
by

Patricia Logan

A serial killer is preying upon gay men in Los Angeles. Detective Cassidy Ryan of the LAPD is out to stop the monster before more mutilated corpses turn up. The victims have one thing in common and it leads back to an infamous online club called DOMZ.com. The website owner, Zachary Teak, is stunningly gorgeous and infuriatingly uncooperative. Having spent years in vice, investigating crimes fueled by pornography, Cassidy hates the Dom on sight. 

Zack Teak is a wealthy man and a popular Dom with a long waiting list of subs who beg to lick his boots. The moment he meets the detective, a former Navy SEAL, he is determined to help the handsome, blond hunk explore his own submissive nature but Cassidy is having none of it. 

As Cassidy closes in on the killer, he succumbs to Teak’s charms, finding that it’s okay to give up control and let Zack take charge. Join the men as they flush out a killer while trying not to become victims themselves.

(You can listen to a sample here, too.)

Thwarted in his efforts to become head of the Amsterdam pride of lion shifters, Kaspar de Wit flees to England. He finds himself in Bath, home of the biggest English pride, and begins to make a new life among friends. What he doesn’t know is that he’s moved to a city steeped in bloody ritual. Destiny seems to have drawn Kaspar to the place where he’ll meet his mate–but does something more horrifying lie in wait for him, too?

Jon Fellowes, professor of archaeology at Bath University, is obsessed with the standing stones that dominate the Somerset landscape and the people who raised them. He’s heard tales of strange creatures, half-man, and half-lion that once roamed the land, but dismisses them till he meets the beautiful Kaspar and learns the bizarre truth of his nature. As an ancient rite is revived and terror stalks the countryside, can Jon and Kaspar overcome the natural distrust between humans and shifters to find true love?

Or will one of them be forced to make the ultimate sacrifice?

Reviewer: Leigh

Review: This book is part of a series and should be read in order.

Kasper has left behind his life and the pride he was a part of after someone else is named the leader. Because it was well known that leader would not grant leadership to a gay man, Kasper has always hide that he is gay, to the point of never even acting on his wants. After his gay relative is named leader he leaves Amsterdam for England to make a new start for himself. There is joins the local pride and starts working as a bartender.

Jon is an archeology professor who has recently broken up with his boyfriend after learning he was being cheated on. After running into his ex at his favorite bar he decides to go to a different one for a drink. There he meets bartender Kasper. Right from the start Jon knows Kasper is something special to him and to walk away would be a mistake.

As they start dating Kasper has to come to terms with the fact that his mate is human and how to inform Jon that he is a lion shifter as Jon keeps wondering why a man as sexy as Kasper would be interested in plain old him. They are both a little insecure with their places only knowing they want to be together and make it work. From their first night together they are smoking hot. The sex between starts with a bang and keeps coming. These boys are very sexy and can be downright dirty.

There is the relationship between Kasper and Jon that is central to the book, but there is also another plot that happens throughout until the end. A group of men are attempting to perform an ancient ritual. These scenes were actually interesting as they are told from different points of view rather the victim or the perpetrator.

The book was fast paced and well written. There was a lot of hot sex, love, mating, a little violence, a little mayhem, and a happy ending. There was not much more I could ask for to have an enjoyable read, which this delivers on.

Review: This is part of the Kansas City Heat series and they need to be read in order. This is one of my top ten series that I love to read more than once. They are well written with a lot of feeling put into it. The characters are perfect and I have such a blast hearing about their lives. It is told with a lot of serious tones but there is a bit of humor in them that keeps me coming back for more. I also love the fact that they are sexy men that carries badges and guns.

Will and Josh have been together for a couple of years and they seem so perfect. When Will was noticed for his work at St. Louis, Kansas City wanted him working for them. He was now going to be a homicide detective. On his first day, a murder of a gay man set the stage for what he had assumed his job would be like. Dix and Abby had acted like homophobic asses, but it soon comes out that they were just being idiots. However Will is afraid to tell them that he is gay.

Then when the second murder shows up, they found Josh’s card on him. It brought Josh into focus. Now it is up to Will to tell everyone that he is not only gay, but that their suspect is his boyfriend.

Josh knew that things were heating up, but when he thought his lover was humiliated by him he was hurt. Then to be accused of murder, things were definitely not looking up. He knows that he has to trust his man to look out for him, but it doesn’t mean he has to forgive him right off the bat. With Will being in the dog house, it is up to Dix and the others to help them out.

I loved this series and look forward to reading more by Jenna. I love the way you never know who the killer is until the last moment. It has a lot of twists that has me wanting more. I love that this story gave me everything I could want in a story and so much more. They are the perfect length for me and have a plot that will have you wanting more. I loved this book and can’t wait for the next one to come out.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This was a cute story and I had a blast reading it. My thing with it was that it was not long enough. It went too fast for my liking. I think there should have been more to it. It went from meet and date, to being together and then straight to the end. There was not much in between. There were no problems at all between them and for some reason it was just too cheerful for me to love. I love the beginning to it but I want more bite.

Sawyer loved to run. Here he was getting ready to run five miles, not expecting to find love. His day just got better when he met Finn. Finn had a heart attack when he was in his thirties and knew he had to fix his life, so here he was running. Things are starting to look up for them both.

It has a serious tone to it, but there is a hint of humor in it. I love a book that you can smile with. I would recommend reading it. It is a story that will have your spirits lifting. It is great little short story for when you need a break from life.

I had fun with it and look forward to reading more by this amazing author.

Blurb: Wil Rice has been a Dom for over ten years, but he has yet to find the perfect submissive to share his dark desires. Maybe he wants too much. He’s looking for the whole package—a partner, a lover, a man who will trust him enough to surrender body and mind.

Wil plays at an underground sex party, and a scene with Aiden Murphy convinces him that he’s found his submissive. But Aiden belongs to someone else—a sadistic police chief who’s not about to give up his property. Wil knows he should walk away, but he’s hooked. He can’t get Aiden out of his head, and he’ll do anything to get his hands on the boy again.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: This was an explosive book that just captivates you and leaves you trembling for more. I must admit that even though it was well written and has a damn good story, there was just something missing to make it perfect. It is the first book in this story, but to me there should have been more to it.

I wanted to learn more about what was truly going on in the back ground and how the chief of police was allowed to do what he does. Plus there should have been a bit more trouble coming from Aiden’s escape.

Aiden had been tricked and arrested for solicitation. Now he was to be punished in front of everyone. Wil saved him from that, but it was not enough. The police chief had ulterior motives and he was terrified. There was so much evil that Aiden was afraid of what was to come. He had not expected Wil to be the one to save him.

For me to truly have loved this story there should have been more to it. It starts off right but for me it was off a bit. It is like walking into the middle of a movie.

I would recommend reading it. It has a lot of kink that will leave you wanting more of a taste. I can’t wait to see what the second book is going to be like.

However I sure hope it has a bit more to it.

Blurb: Take two, and call me in the morning.

Eli and Zane. Colleagues at work and close friends, though on the surface it’s an unexpected friendship between an odd couple. While Zane took the “high school to college to med school” track, medicine is Eli’s second career and the best choice he ever made. He has work that he loves, an extended second family of colleagues and friends, and Zane.

So why does everyone make such a big deal about the pair of them?

Yes, they spend a lot of time together. It doesn’t mean they’re a real couple. When teased about it one too many times by their colleagues, Zane challenges Eli to set the record straight with a kiss to prove there’s absolutely no chemistry between them.
Neither expected a spark to ignite between them. More than a spark. Desire. Passion.

Zane wants to try getting up close and personal again to see if it was a one-time fluke or something more. Eli thinks he’s too old to jump the fence now, but he can’t say no to Zane and he doesn’t want to.

Truth be told, Eli’s not so sure they can set the record straight after all.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: For me when it comes to Willa Okati’s books they can be a bit hit and miss, but Call Me in the Morning is easily one of my favourites from the author. This is perfect for anyone who likes to read a nice (mostly sweet) story about two friends realising they are really in love.

Eli and Zane are both doctors who work at the Immaculate Grace. They’re basically two peas in a pod. Eli’s wife left him when their marriage broke down (amicably too!) and Zane doesn’t seem to have any attachments whatsoever. The running joke between some of their friends/work colleagues is that Zane is Eli’s wife. There’s a lot of “where’s your wife?” jokes where Eli replies about his ex.

These guys are in their early forties, well Eli definitely is and furthermore, Eli change career to become a doctor later while in his thirties. So when you see a somewhat mature relationship with very little angst, it’s both relatable and believable. The romance between them is both sweet and gentle, despite the fact that these guys are exploring their sexuality at the same time. However, it is quickly obvious that Zane is more open to these changes in their relationship than Eli. After all, it is Zane that suggests that they kiss – purely for scientific purposes, of course.

I liked that some of the drama in the book actually stemmed from events outside of the relationship and had no bearing on the ultimate outcome for the most part. If I must make one criticism, it is that Zane is too sensitive to Eli’s tendency to put his foot in his mouth, for the most part friends are desensitized to this sort of thing or else we’d be continually fighting with our friends. That really did bug me a bit because Zane was all for exploring his feelings for Eli but if Eli said something wrong Zane flounced off and then Eli was the one that went to fix things.

The supporting characters are also wonderful. We get to know the guys friends, also doctors, Diana and Holly, as well as younger guys Taye and Richie. This is enjoyable to the end and HEA ending to make us happy.

Blurb: When you’re a thief, your dating options are limited. When you’re a cop, it’s even worse. So what happens when a burglar and two lawmen are trapped together during a heist gone wrong?

Blue has been a thief for years, but she’s never been in a situation quite like this. When you’re crammed into a tiny space with two sexy detectives, things can get very dicey. Shockingly, instead of arresting her, Matt and Liam ask for a kiss. Blue is happy to oblige. Anything to keep the handcuffs off, right?

Matt and Liam never expect to end up cornered with a gorgeous thief. Liam has sworn off women and Matt can’t find anyone he likes better than his partner, so their love lives are nonexistent.

When they meet a woman who keeps the same crazy hours as cops do, maybe her criminal career choice isn’t the deal breaker it should be?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Now this was one hell of a hot and very sexy book. If it were me I would have ditched the girl, she brought the story down completely. Now if it had been three guys I would have given it a high 4. I can’t stand books that have girly parts in it, makes me want to puke. However the title and the series name is what caught my attention. The idea of two police officers and a thief getting all hot and bothered is my idea of a good time. Then there is how they met that is funny as hell.

I did have a blast reading this and had it been longer with the girl I would not have read the story. So I was glad that it was a short story. Now like I said that if it had three guys in it, and the story extended by a hundred pages I would be the first one buying it. Because it has a great story line that just catches your attention and has you all hot and bothered by the end.

I got a kick out of it and would recommend reading it. Now if only they can shoot the woman.

Flame is a simple dragon. All he wants is to help his kingdom and if he gets a mate along the way he’d be even happier. Flame’s sole purpose in life is to protect people and he does that by staying strong. He doesn’t understand why more people don’t want to be their best.

Flame knew the instant he saw Valda they were mates.

Valda might have other ideas, but Flame will get his man.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I have got to say that this was quite a surprise. For me the first part is a bit confusing and leaves you trying to figure out how they get to where they are now. So I would suggest reading the stories in sequence. Although it didn’t really take from the story. I would have loved for there to be more description and details on all of it, the story was still pretty damn good. Jambrea always has a great imagination that will draw you in and leave you wanting. I was glad to find out that this was a series though. I can’t wait to see what the next one is like.

Valda is a wizard and stuck in a prison cell with a dragon. He has hated dragons for over thirty years. Dragons had killed his mate, the man he loved. However the dragon that is in the cell with him won’t leave him alone. Flame keeps telling him that they are mates. Sure enough things are about to heat up with these two. I had a blast reading this and look forward to reading the others.

I would recommend reading this. It is a pretty good story although I wished it was longer. It has its serious tone to it but there is a bit of humor in it. Flame comes off so tender and loving that he is the one I am cheering for. It is great for when you want a quick read to fill in your day with.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Oh now this story is a kicker. I should have paid better attention to it. I spent the whole time laughing my ass off reading about zombies. The guys have a plan, always had a plan when it came time to run. They all believed in zombies and sure enough it came true.

Tracy always believed even though many thought he was crazy. He and his friends made plans. Konrad makes the plans more ready with Tracy, while praying that his husband Jase comes home. Jase is off doing his thing in the military and missing his husband. Guy’s parents called and told him about the zombies’ right before they died. Renji has a plan full of people to figure out how to protect and Eddie is just worried about her job. She is cop working in the middle of the zombies.

This book is a blast and I had so much fun with it. If I had known it was about zombies I probably would have skipped over it, but I am glad I didn’t. It was so damn funny that I couldn’t put it down. I can wait to read the next book in this series.

I would recommend reading this book. It will have you laughing in no time.
