A Good Neighbour

(London Lads 03)
by

Clare London

A secret affair can’t go on forever.

Dylan Philips admits it himself: he’s a relentlessly single man in a small suburban town, both proud of and resigned to being a good teacher and a devoted nephew to his mischievous great-aunts.

When the aunts take a hand in matchmaking him with Josie Whitman, the girl who lives along the street, Dylan doesn’t tell them what kind of soul mate he’s really looking for—and the fact that he’s already found the man in question. It’s not Josie who’s travelling from London every month to her town property, but her journalist brother Neal. And Dylan meets up with Neal whenever he can.

But decisions must be made for their future. Dylan is risk-averse to everything from overseas travel to coming out, whereas Neal embraces adventure—and now he wants to take Dylan with him.

Horrified that his chance at love will move even further out of his reach, Dylan realises it’s time for him to own up to what kind of man he really is. He needs to find courage and compromise. And who knows whether the great-aunts will be a help or a hindrance with that?

How The Other Half Lives

(Perchance to Dream 05 / London Lads 02)
by

Clare London

Compulsively neat freak meets chaotic slob: can their living space survive the conflict?

Martin Harrison keeps himself to himself and his Central London flat as neat as a new pin. Maybe he should loosen up and enjoy more of a social life, but in his mind, that’s tantamount to opening the floodgates to emotional chaos. He agrees, however, to join the flat-sitting scheme in his building and look after another tenant’s flat in exchange for a similar watch over his when he’s travelling for his work.

A floor away in the same building, Russ McNeely is happy with his life as a freelance cook and a self-confessed domestic slob. He also joins the flat-sitting scheme, both to be neighbourly and to help keep his flat in order, as Russ also travels for his work.

For a while, the very dissimilar men never meet. Martin is horrified at the mess at Russ’s flat, while Russ finds Martin’s minimalist style creepy. But in a spirit of generosity, each of them starts to help the other out by rearranging things in their own inimitable way.

Until the day a hiccup in the schedule brings them face-to-face at last.

Chase The Ace

(Perchance to Dream 01 / London Lads 01)
by

Clare London

Newly single in his late twenties, and bored with his life in a London insurance company, Daniel Cross soon discovers the lure of social media. Excited at the chance of tracking down his old mates from a schooldays sports club, he launches a personal quest to find out what kind of man each boy has become. 

Dan’s first mistake is chatting online to the wrong man—Nick Carson isn’t one of the boys, but his brother. Nick isn’t offended and offers to accompany Dan on the trip to find the others. It’s the first step to friendship and something more for both of them. 

For Dan, the reunions with the “Gang of Four” range from startling and heartening to disturbing. Nick’s company is a constant support, though neither of them are prepared for the exposure of personal secrets they’d thought long hidden. Dan begins to suspect he’s really looking for a direction in his own life—and the excitement and purpose he craves may be closer to home than a quest with its roots in a boyhood dream.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I haven’t really had a chance to read many stories by this author however it was an interesting story.  Although I did have some issues with it, such as how does one to get the man’s age and not have used any social media just seems wrong.  I don’t see how it could be possible at this time.  I also felt that the blurb told the story itself.  

Daniel has decided to take a road trip and look up his old friends.  Too bad he contacted the wrong guy but ends up being the right man for him.  It’s one of those stories to see where old friends are now days.  However I just didn’t see the connection to the past at all.  Now Nick is actually an older brother to one of the guys and decides he wants to go along with Daniel on this trip.  It might turn interesting, but if you want to know read the book.  

Now as I said there were a few issues I had with the story but I won’t go into it because each person has an opinion that might not be so bad for another.  It is a cute little story with just a hint of kink to it.  I liked how the guys seemed to grow together if that is the right word.  There are some funny scenes which made it rock for me. 

However the story itself felt a bit off, the story is set in England and for an American it comes off a bit strange but perfect for the story.  It is very defined and fully developed for such a short story.  The characters were so real like that it seemed like a person would know them on sight.  It is an entertaining story and also a nice read.  I could have used a bit more heat but it was pretty good either way. Now the story itself was very good but I find that it wasn’t for me.  It was a little too sweet, if you know what I mean.

Blurb:  Creatures of the Night and Santa’s Christmas duties don’t mix. Every myth and bedtime story tells you so.

But on Christmas Eve, when the Elves walked off the job over pension rights, it was time for me—Irwin, the only vampire on Santa’s payroll, despite recent diversity initiatives—and my trusty team to help out. Just deliver a few parcels, Santa asked me. Just help out on your local patch. Just for one night.

Armed with my reluctance to face all that human sentimentality, and accompanied by a wise-cracking werewolf and an unruly fairy with a taste for vodka, I did my best. Honest.
But we were heading for disaster until I came face-to-face with cute babysitter Benny. It’s Santa’s Number One Rule—no interaction with the clients. But Benny somehow managed to upset my appetite, inflame my libido, and restore my faith in the Christmas spirit, with one cheeky smile and a tasty body piercing.

It’s Christmas, and the show must go on!

Review:  With the elves on strike, Irwin and his two goofballs are on present delivery duty.  So what happens when you put one sprite, one werewolf and a vampire together?  Well you won’t know till you read this cute little story.

You cannot really go into detail about these stories without giving them away.  I got a kick out of it and definitely would read it next Christmas.  It is a very quirky and fun story.  Let a vampire meet a human and his brain goes out the window.

by

Clare London

How tangled can a romantic web get?

When gruff mountaineer Dominic Hartington-George seeks sponsorship for his latest expedition, his London PA insists on a more media-friendly profile—like dating celebrity supermodel Zeb Z.

Zeb can’t make the date, so he asks his identical twin, Aidan, to stand in for just one evening. Aidan, a struggling playwright, shuns the limelight to the extent people don’t even know Zeb has a sibling, but he reluctantly agrees.

When the deception has to continue beyond the first date, Aidan fights to keep up the pretense. Dominic likes his sassy, intelligent companion, and Aidan starts falling for the forthright explorer. But how long can Aidan’s conscience cope as confusion abounds? Will coming clean as “the other twin” destroy the trust they’ve built?

Reviewer: Prime

Review: I’ve read only a couple of books by Clare London and they were so long ago that I didn’t remember, which really isn’t saying much for me since I got the memory of a sieve. However, Romancing the Wrong Twin is exactly what the title and the blurb says and I have to admit, it is a magnificent guilty pleasure. Being that it is part of the Dreamspun Desires series, you need to expect some level of insta-love, totally hot sexual tension and hot sex between the two MCs, as well as some over the top drama while the characters are still relatable. As I keep saying, it is the Harlequin/Mills and Boon of the MM world.

The story is quite self explanatory from the title. Someone is clearly dating someone pretending to be his twin. I know it sounds silly and that was why I wanted to read this book! Aidan is “the wrong twin” and he is taking the place of his famous brother Zeb (stage name). Zeb is a model and as part of his contract, is often contracted to be seen with other celebrities in order to get seen by the paparazzi. But Zeb can’t make his latest job – to be seen at a film premiere with famous mountaineer Dominic Hartington-George. Dominic has zero person skills but unlike his brother, Aidan is totally attracted to Dominic. The problem is Aidan is continuing to pretend to be his brother and the farce just snowballs from the word go.

This book has the right amount of attraction and hot sex between the MCs – they are totally made for each other – and the pure farcical nature of the entire plot as the book progresses is just fun and humorous. I really grew to loved Aidan and his gruff beau. A totally fun and satisfying read.

Blurb: When you find a place where lust and sex rule life, and your every desire can be fulfilled, why would you ever want to leave?

Young runaway Scot and his boyfriend Jerry escape their deadbeat homes and families, hoping to leave prejudice behind them and travel to a new life in Las Vegas. Unprepared and naive, they’re lost almost at once, and shelter at a run-down, deserted motel in the middle of the scorching hot Nevada desert. A place with secrets, run by staff both gorgeous and uninhibited, and driven by a mysterious sexual connection Scot’s never even dared to dream. 

All but drugged by the lazy heat and the hedonism around him, Scot watches as Jerry is seduced away and realizes their relationship was nothing more than shared lust. Restless, Scot knows he wants true love and real understanding. Could he find it with the mysterious and elusive owner of the motel, Connor Maxwell? Connor seems to think so, every time he appears and pursues Scot for his own. But where does Connor come from? It seems the passion calls him into being at its own whim. 

Eventually, what binds Connor and his friends to the motel may be too strong for Scot to break through. Scot has ambitions to travel, to make something of his life – but is his only option to embrace life at the motel in his true lover’s arms? 

Or will that love be strong enough to release them both …

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Scot and Jerry run away from their homes to be together only to get lost and end up at a broken down seemingly deserted motel only to discover three other men, Conner, Vincent and Oliver living there. Jerry is immediately taken with both Vincent and Oliver and seems to slowly pull away from Scot.

Scot, unsure whether to stay or go is fascinated with Conner. Conner is mysterious and sexy. The motel has a magical quality to it that provides the characters with everything they could ever want. All they have to do is stay. But Scot has goals he wants to achieve as so begins the decision of whether to stay or go.

I liked the mysterious quality to the story though it never said one way or another what exactly was going on at the motel or those who were already there. It was almost creepy the way Conner, Oliver and Vincent acted at times. They seemed to be in a dreamlike trance at times.

Aside from that it was a well written story with a lot of hot sex. Scot, I felt sorry for as it seemed he left his home for bigger and better things and away from being controlled at home only to end up in the same situation somewhere else only with the person he’s been drawn to all his life, Conner.

Blurb: A sudden disaster strikes everyone’s favourite ice cream shop, With A Kick. Not only does it threaten the livelihood of its owner, Patrick, but also his loyal assistant Lee. The last thing in the world Patrick would ever want to do is hurt Lee, either physically or emotionally. Why would he? He’s been falling in love with Lee since the day Lee invited himself into the shop’s business and Patrick’s life. But familiar and deeply-held insecurities hold Patrick back – he’s too gruff for Lee, too old, and his labour-of-love business is never going to make him rich.

Lee is weary of trying to make Patrick see how much he admires and cares for him. To Lee, it’s a very straightforward situation. Patrick is sexy, Patrick is smart, Patrick needs Lee’s help – and Lee needs Patrick in his life as more than a boss. All the characteristics Patrick finds inhibiting, Lee finds attractive. However, if Patrick’s apparently never going to make a move on Lee, how long should Lee wait to make his own move? Maybe Patrick thinks Lee is too clingy, too immature. Maybe Lee should give up his romantic hopes completely. If, that is, he can bear to do it.

The disaster at the shop brings them a whole new opportunity to work – and love – together to make a go of things. They’ve both got to look at each other in a whole new way. With the help of all their With A Kick friends, this could be make or break for the reluctant couple!

Reviewer: Lisa

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

Sometimes you find an author that just amazes you with their writings and Clare is one of those authors. I loved the cover and title to this book. It told me that it was going to be one of those feisty stories with characters that you would easily fall in love with. The characters were in tune with the story and they were fun to read about.

Patrick’s in a bit of trouble, when disaster strikes his business. He is worried that it will cause trouble not only for him but for his sexy little assistant. He has been falling in love with Lee for some time, but Lee has been hurt in the past. He thinks that he is not the one for Lee, but it would seem Lee doesn’t agree.

Lee is tired of trying to show Patrick how he feels for him. That is until their little problem shows up. Now Lee is about to get what he wishes for as well as Patrick.

The ice cream shop is the place where many of the other stories take place at. Patrick was a teacher who had lost his job and decided to do something he had wanted to do. He feels so damn guilty that the man he loves had to go to the hospital and things start changing for them both. It takes all of their friends to help them both out. Patrick takes him to the hotel to help him and things start heating up soon after.

I had so much fun reading this and look forward to reading the next story in this amazing series. It is cute, sweet and damn hot.

I loved all the characters in this book and would definitely recommend it.

Review: This is part of the Daily Dose Delivery Package: Never Too Late. It was one of the better stories that I have read. It is a very cute little love story of two men that fell in love but one had a secret.

Glen and Aston had fallen in love, but Aston had lied through it all. He was married with children and was basically cheating on his family. Now twenty years later Aston is back and divorced. Glen is afraid of what could happen but he knows that to grow he must learn to forgive and to trust that Aston will prove what he says.

I had a blast reading this story and would love to read more about these two gorgeous men. I know how hard it is to be the one that is cheated on and in fact understand he basically cheated on them both. However he has learned that to move forward he has to trust that his heart will be protected.

I would recommend reading this story. It has the sadness of two men, true love and forgiveness in it.
