Breaker

(Exile Vol 01)
by

A.F. Henley & Kelly Wyre

Breaker

In the wake of several near-cataclysmic events, humanity created the Cure, a DNA-altering antidote to death by disease and old age. But all cures come with side effects: a small percentage of the population develops a wide range of powers, some of which are lethal to others, and some which are lethal to the wielder.

These people are called the Estranged, hunted and shunned, safe only on the Island of Exile. It is here that Kaeva and Eddie meet—and where they set a prophecy in motion, quite possibly sealing their own demise, and even the end of Exile.

Genre: Gay, Urban Fantasy

Notes: contains some explicit content and includes thoughts and discussions of past and potential suicide

Wolf, In League

(Wolf 03)
by

A.F. Henley

It’s been months since anyone at the Committee has had any contact from the O’Connell family or their pack members, and they are not happy. Suspicious of the activities that took place in D.C. and determined to find out what the wolves are up to, the Committee recruits one of their newest residents, Doctor Matthew Dietrich, to play the part of neighbor and infiltrate the family.

Matthew has always been a keep-to-himself kind of person. Though idealistic and optimistic, he prefers to work in solitude, at night, while he researches the findings that he hopes will one day change the world. When he’s approached by the executives of the Center, he has no idea why they’d choose him. And to say he is skeptical over the concept of men that can shift into wolves would be an understatement. Until he meets his new partner, the man that will play the part of his “husband” in the Committee’s scheme, Doctor Gavin Strauss.

Genre: Gay, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy

Notes: Wolf, in League contains some explicit and violent content

Reviewer: Lisa

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

I find myself not really liking this as much as I did the first one. Lyle is a spoiled brat through most of this story, hateful to his father and his father’s mate, but he makes a mistake that will cost him. It has a very dark tone to it, which unlike the first one I didn’t much care for this one.

It is full of action and mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat wondering what would happen next. It has a fast pace to it, but there was some parts that were just not fast enough to really keep my attention like it should have. Lyle was a total ass to his father’s mate in the first story. He had come into his wolf powers and starting to show his dominance to everyone.

Now you get to see Lyly’s story.

Lyle and his family decide to go to Washington to visit Randy’s family but things start to go downhill from there. He comes across a vampire that was pure evil, but he was intrigued by him at first. Then he realizes that not everything is as it seems, and he finds himself in quite a bit of trouble. This is the same vampire that Randy had met when he and Wolf broke up for a bit. It would seem that Arias wants revenge. He finds Rafe in a locked room of Arias, and helps him to escape.

He realizes his attraction to Randy was much different from that of his attraction to Rafe. His father had told him that you will find the one for you, and he has come to the conclusion that his father was right. It would seem that his father was right about more than just that. He really needed to listen to his father more.

In this story the characters were not as well written as I had expected, which was a bit of downer. You don’t really get to know much about Rafe till sometime later in the story. There is quite a bit of heat to this story but the darkness over shadowed it for me. I just couldn’t seem to get into it like I should have, but that could be because I didn’t much care for Lyle as it was. He just didn’t sit well with me at all.

Other than that the story itself is well written and has a lot of depth to it that surprised me. The chemistry that was in Rafe and Lyle was smoking hot. As for Arias, he is as evil as they come. Vaughn was a bit too much for me also. He treated Lyle like a toddler to me. He definitely came off more Alpha, but not fatherly. Now Lyle has a chance to grow into adulthood and so far he has a ways to go.

The thing with this story is the fact that you don’t actually meet Rafe till the story is almost over. It just seemed completely off to me. This whole story just seemed off and not as well written as the first. I just couldn’t really connect with the story at all, and couldn’t keep my attention on it. I was a tad disappointed in this one.

I wonder what the next book will give me.

Blurb: There’s nothing like a fresh start, and for Randy, still nursing wounds left by a cheating ex and harboring a deep mistrust for all things corporate, Wolf, Wyoming seems like the perfect place to start over. Secluded, quiet, and self-sufficient, Wolf is bound to not only inspire, but to bring Randy the peace he needs. The view’s not bad, either.

Vaughn O’Connell and his family are Randy’s only neighbors for miles, and while Randy knows it’s somewhat unlikely that a man with three kids is gay, it doesn’t hurt to look. When a misunderstanding brings Randy face to face with both Vaughn and his eighteen year old son, Lyle, Randy’s not sure what to feel about either of them.

But things are not what they appear in Wolf, and the closer Randy gets, the stranger the O’Connell family seems…

Review: This is the first story by this author that I have read and I have to tell you that this story was amazing. Full of detail, energy, excitement, suspense and feelings. It is certainly different from any other book I have come across. There is not an instant love, fated mates or any of the usual that you find in a paranormal romance. I loved the way it just caught my attention and kept it throughout. I couldn’t put the book down, till I finished it.

Randy was a successful lawyer who had everything he had wanted, or should I say everything his mother wanted. However he was not truly happy, so when he found out that his fiancé was a cheating ass he decided it was time to end. He decided to just pack it all up and find a place for him. He just hadn’t expected a different life completely.

Not to mention all the snow that is around. However when he sees some men cutting down his tree, he turns all bossy. Funny as hell, seeing as they are neighbors doing a good deed. Vaughn is the one that turns him on but damn Lyle is just sexy. However it is Vaughn that he wants. The thing is there are some major secrets going on.

Vaughn is a werewolf with a teenage son going through the change. There are not many werewolves left so he hadn’t expected it out of his son. His son wanted to fight for dominance and Vaughn needed to keep his head on straight. The problem is he has the hots for his neighbor and his son knows it. He just can’t stay away.

This was told in Randy’s voice it seems and let’s just say he rocks it. The things he thinks about is just a blast to hear and so damn funny. He is the one that pulls you in completely but when these two get together it is hot as hell. He has one hell of an imagination and can talk a blue strip up.

I loved the whole family and it came off perfectly. The little ones were just funny as all and I can’t wait to see what happens with them in the future. I am definitely saying that this author has made my watch list, because this story has hit my top ten favorite books.

I loved it and can’t wait to see what the next book will be like.

A Touch of Mistletoe ~ Less Than Three Press Holiday Anthology

Reviewer: Tams
Review: Five different authors came together to share these five distinctly different stories with a little holiday flare.

Blurb:

Here for You by J.K. Pendragon
Warren’s life has been shrinking ever since his wife passed away. Blind, and finding it difficult to adjust to life on his own, it’s easier to hide away in his house. When his friend Missy invites him to a Christmas party, an unexpected kiss with a stranger under the mistletoe leaves him confused and wondering…

JK Pendragon set the stage for the stories with her gay for you tale that all started with a kiss under the mistletoe. Warren is still recovering from his wife’s death when he attends his best friends Christmas party. Not really in the mood to socialize, he finds himself in the library seeking solace from the festivities, but he is not the only one to need a little peace and quiet.

Warren is confused and almost argumentative with Kyung about his sexuality, but when a second kiss leaves him wanting more, Warren quickly deals with his newfound attraction to another man.

The Christmas Spirit by Talya Andor
Christmas in Japan is no big deal for Ash Harmon, with his family half a world away and supernatural problems that have no respect for the holidays. When he picks up a bodyguard job for a rising star of figure skating who seems to be encountering trouble with a restless spirit, he stubbornly resists the unexpected attraction to his charge, wary of the risks that come with relationships. But the mistletoe has other ideas…

Talya Andor turns the tables with spooky ghost story set in Japan with a burgeoning romance between a paranormal investigator and the skater he is assigned to. This shot story has a lot of content with the PNR, multi-cultural romance and mysterious aspects all vying for equal attention.

A Beautiful Thing by A.F. Henley
Sometimes, Fate gets tired of being ignored. And some nights, Fate decides something will just have to be done about it. Enter Drualus, Senior Correspondent for the Collective Assembly of Christmas Fae, working with the Night Before Reach Out Program. He’s got a few short hours to change Scott Misener’s outlook on life, love, and understanding. Lucky for Scott, Dru knows a tried and true trope that might just do the trick…

AF Henley confused me with her sci-fi story that included what I think were a fairy and a guardian angel, perhaps these two thoughts of a character in my mind were one in the same? I’ll be honest, I skimmed this one, didn’t quite catch my attention.

Ad Meliora by E.E. Ottoman
It’s Christmas Eve and An-An and M.C. have plans to spend Christmas in Texas with An-An’s family. But their plans are cut short when M.C. takes on a last-minute case. Thankfully, though, it should be an easy exorcism.

Until they arrive at the snowbound lodge where trouble resides, and come face to face with a demon wolf unlike anything they’ve ever encountered.

EE Ottoman transcends normality with this transgender sci-fi nod that delves into something sinister, exorcism, murder and mayhem all while one of the female leads is transitioning into her new-found identity as a male. This one calls for a girly bits warning, including the terminology for said bits.

Two Parts Mistletoe by Megan Derr
Kingston has worked hard to get where he is: owner of his own shop, master potion maker, well-respected… and lonely, too busy with life to enjoy more than his regular visits to Acacia House. If he wishes his loneliness might be eased by Hux, the man he meets at Acacia twice a month, well, someday he’ll work up the nerve to ask. Maybe.

Then Hux unexpectedly visits his shop, distressed and in desperate need of help to save his employer from a love potion…

Megan Derr rounds out this stellar casting with her magical tale with a historical feel. Kingston is a potion maker that Hux has called on to help him with a potion gone wrong. As it turns out, Hux’s boss is the unfortunate recipient of unrequited love that resulted in a love potion gone wrong. But that is just the backdrop for the story, the real focus here is on the relationship between Kingston and Hux, which has been a long time coming you learn as you read the story.

As I said at the start, these are all five distinctly different stories with one common interest, love. While I skimmed through the Henley and Ottoman stories due to subject, all five stories were very well written regardless. My favorite was the budding romance between Warren and Kyung. I would love to read a full-length novel for them.

If you are looking for a variety of stories from several well-versed authors then this steamy Christmas themed anthology will be perfect for you. Romance, mystery, suspense, paranormal activity and healthy dose of passion all underneath the Mistletoe!

Blurb:Ladomer’s first experience with vampires instilled a deep hatred—an emotion he gladly uses to bring destruction to the beasts that can’t be purged from his memory. Hunting alongside the compelling man who saved his village, Ladomer and Zor are ruthless in their quest to stop the growing threat.

Review: Ladomer’s brother is killed by a vampire saving him when he is a small boy he goes on to fall in love and travel with a vampire slayer.

I really loved this. The vampires in here are evil but the hunters; well Zor and Ladomer are so likeable. I loved the sweet but intense romance between Zor and Ladomer and the twists were nail-biting. I loved it and hope there is more!

I recommend this to anyone that likes short but sweet romances with evil vampires and a satisfying end.
