Blurb: Four stories of sex, romance, and college boys learning to kneel.

Hitachi is a police officer reduced to being a glorified babysitter for a rich man’s son. He resents his assignment, but Gabriel isn’t the brat Hitachi believes he is. He’s a man who likes pain, and who wants Hitachi to let loose with him too.

Leo fantasizes about having sex with a complete stranger, but when he gets his chance it isn’t nearly as wonderful as he imagined it to be. His dad’s boss tries to teach him a lesson about making stupid choices, but his education in submission doesn’t end there.

Jensen is horrible at math, and now he’s in a calculus class that he’s barely getting through. His parents get him a tutor, but this tutor is interested in teaching Jensen about far more than just math.

Timothy comes back home, to a tiny town he can’t stand, when his mother’s illness gets worse. He’s made a string of bad decisions, and his mother’s friend is determined to turn his life around before Timothy gets lost entirely.

Reviewer: Veronica

Review: I love this author’s work, but I really struggled with these four in one stories. The blurb is what got me to choose this story. Yes, there is intense sex scenes, but the stories are just so unbelievable. Jensen goes to be tutored in Mathematics, because he’s very bad at the subject, and within less than half hour, he has a safe word and he’s in a Play room, being spanked and then have sex with his tutor.

Hitachi has been sent on assignment to pick up someone from the airport, who he’s never met before, and to drive him home. He’s invited inside, and Gabriel quickly starts playing with him, and they role play, and have sex.

Leo has always fantasized about hooking up and having sex with a stranger. He organizes a hook up and goes to this guy’s house, without knowing who the guy is. He is given instructions on what will happen between them. He gets treated roughly with vigorous sex, and then after, the guy reveals himself and it’s his Dad’s boss. He treats Leo like crap, and tells him that he’s teaching him a lesion.

With Timothy, he left his hometown as fast as he could when he was eighteen, but now he has returned home after his mom’s illness have gotten worse. He goes to a bar to relax and they he’s approached by someone, who invites him to a rodeo. He goes to the location, and he’s brutally beaten, he’s rescued by the owner of the building, and then they have sex. The only difference in all of these stories is that Timothy is the only one in his right mind to ask about protection before sex. 

I love this author’s stories, but I won’t be recommending this one to anyone.

An abusive Dom robbed Orion Gordon of his love of BDSM, destroying his confidence and leaving him unsure he’ll ever find peace through submission to another. Still, deep inside, his longing continues. 

Marcus Sadir loves Hunter Dixon, yet can’t be the one thing Hunter truly desires: a sub to control. And Hunter can’t find satisfaction in the sadistic aspects of the BDSM lifestyle, while Marcus thrives on inflicting and sharing pain. When Marcus convinces Hunter they should find a third on a permanent basis, they discover Orion might be the key to bridging their differences and joining them on a deeper level. 

But they must help Orion move past his trauma enough for him to enjoy new facets of BDSM and kink again. Their journey toward becoming whole—together—won’t be without challenges. Can Orion trust enough to try again?

After winning Olympic gold four years ago, Justin retired from swimming, and he’s been floundering ever since. The Fourth of July finds him contemplating doing something stupid, so Justin calls up his former coach, Chris Jarvis. To his surprise, Coach answers.

When Justin retired, Chris cut all ties with the swimmer he’d fallen in love with. He never wanted Justin to love him just because it was easy. But he’s been waiting for Justin to reach out, and he’ll gladly take Justin back into his life.

When he finds out Justin is drowning in a pool of self-doubt and the belief that his happy years are behind him, Chris realizes he made a mistake letting go so suddenly, and that Justin needs structure and a firm, dominant hand to keep him on the right track. It’s time to remedy his error—as long as he can convince Justin that it’s really love.

Endings and Beginnings by K.C. Wells & Parker Williams ~ Audiobook

K.C. Wells & Parker Williams - Endings and Beginnings Cover AudioTitle: Endings & Beginnings

Series: Collars & Cuffs Book 8

Author: K.C. Wells  & Parker Williams

Genre: Contemporary, BDSM

Narrator: Joel Leslie

Length: 12 hrs 34 mins

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (20th October 2016)

Heat Level: Moderate – Explicit

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Narration: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Blurb: In all his relationships, Darren Fielding never found the level of intimacy he witnessed between Thomas Williams and his sub, Peter, the day of Peter’s “rebirth”. Not only that, he never realized such intimacy was possible. For two years, Thomas’s business card has been burning a hole in his wallet. When Darren’s lover moves on, maybe it’s finally time to see where that card takes him.

Collars & Cuffs’ new barman, JJ Taylor, is really conflicted right now. He went to the club with a very specific purpose, already convinced of what he’d find there. Except it’s not what he expected at all. He certainly didn’t anticipate finding himself drawn to the new wannabe dom. Nor could he have guessed the direction that attraction would lead him.

Old love, new love, vows, pain, rage, moving in, moving on….The members of Collars & Cuffs face an event that touches some of them deeply, but it will only reinforce what they already know: together they are stronger, and some bonds cannot be broken.

Reviewer: Gigi

Review: Once I had developed a taste for the Collars & Cuffs series I couldn’t wait for the next, and Endings and Beginnings delivers. What I truly enjoyed besides all the hot kink, was revisiting all of our favorite couples. Of course we get to see a new relationship develop first, that of JJ and Daren, both new to the scene, both carrying a lot of baggage that seems at first insurmountable. But with all the help of the Collars and Cuffs family, even during a crisis that haunts them all from the past, a happy relationship will spout.  

My favorite thing about Endings & Beginnings, is that we get just that… to revisit each relationship, remember the couple’s struggles, strengths and passions, and join them in their heart-warming growth and promise for the future. A lot of HEA’s here! I especially love Pietro’s adventure…what a funny, heart melting surprise!! 

Joel Leslie’s strengths at offering each character a defines voice comes to light here, because there are so many sets of characters to follow, he does it very well, though I still get crunchy about his voice for Jarod, he’s only in his 50’s not geriatric damn it! But take that with a grain of salt, the rest of this is fun, kinky, love fest material. I recommend this entire series to anyone who loves kink with their romance!

Blurb: Can the magic Whip and Nicky found at the Gay Riders’ Carnivale continue when they return to their regular lives?

With the Gay Riders’ Carnivale over, Whip brings Nicky home with him to his converted warehouse condo in Ottawa with the hopes that what they started at the Carnivale will grow into something they can both live with forever.

All is going well, the two of them learning more about each other and playing hard between Whip’s returning to work as an EMT and Nicky finding a job at a coffee shop.

When Nicky’s former master, the abusive Dirk, steps back into Nicky’s life, it threatens their very lives. Can Whip and Nicky survive both real life and Dirk?

ISBN: 978-1-78651-521-6

Product Link: https://www.pride-publishing.com/book/bringing-nicky-home

Reviewer: Veronica

Review: I’m not too familiar with this author’s work, and I didn’t read the previous two books in this series to know the circumstances about Whip and Nicky and how they met. From this story, it seems that the last Master that Nicky had, was very abusive and when he met Whip, he decides to go live with him. Although Nicky is living with Whip he wants a job, to help make a contribution in the relationship.

He still wakes with nightmares from when he was being abused and treated badly from his previous master. Whip tries to convince him that he’s safe and no-one will hurt him, once he’s there. Whip and Nicky’s relationship is going smoothly, yes they’re getting to know more about each other. The sex scenes are super hot, and I love the way that Whip keeps reassuring Nicky that he’s doing a good job of taking care of him and their home. Whip is an EMT who loves his job, but during the day when he’s at work, he misses Nicky like crazy.

Things come to a hit when Nicky gets a job working in a Café close to home, and a few days later, Nicky sees his old master Dirk, and messages Whip to let him know. His old master wants him back and will hurt Nicky as much as he can to get him back. Days later, Whip and Nicky are attacked by Dirk and his buddies. Hopefully the Police are called and Dirk and his friends are arrested for assault, and Whip and Nicky won’t have to keep looking out for him.  Granted this book can be read as a stand-alone, but I would recommend anyone reading it, to read the previous ones in this series before they read this one.

Blurb: Eli may only be 30, but he has had enough of pretend submissives. When he spies Jarod in a BDSM club, everything about the man screams submission. So what if Jarod is probably 20 years older than Eli. What does age matter, anyway? All he can see is what he’s always wanted – a sub who wants to serve.

Jarod spent 24 years with his Master before fate took him. Four years on, Jarod is still lost, so when a young Dom takes charge, Jarod rolls with it and finds himself serving again. But he keeps waiting for the other shoe to drop. Because there’s going to come a point when Eli realizes he’s a laughingstock in the club. Who would want to be seen with a 50-year-old sub?

After several missteps, Eli realizes that in order to find happiness, they will need friends who will understand. At a friend’s insistence, he visits Collars & Cuffs, where they are met with open arms. As they settle in to their new life, Eli begins to see things differently and he dares to think he can have it all. Until a phone call threatens to take it all away.

Reviewer: Gigi

Review: This was an excellently written BDSM story with an interesting twist. Instead of all the trite hot young twink subs, we’re provided a fine mature man of 50 filling the submissive role. The introduction is a tear jerker for sure. But as we read on and get to know both partners, a true romance, not just a kinkfest, develops. Not to say there isn’t plenty of kink. We get a bit of restraint, a little pain, precision tools, and some deprivation, but it’s all well written, and flows with mutual chemistry. The support characters are a joy to read and had me smiling the whole time I listened, and that’s saying something because I was raking leaves. I’m sure my family had to wonder what the hell was going on.

Only one little thing stuck in my craw, the narrators voice for Jarod made him sound like he’s an 80 year old geezer more often than not. My hubby is 54, and I can tell you he’s no geezer, and his voice is not strained. That is the only reason I rated the narration like that. Joel does well with the narration everywhere else. Once I got beyond that I could appreciate how each character had their own distinctive voice. My favorite character in this story was actually Maggy, Jarod’s mother. Not only did the narrator make her sound just like the Dowager Countess of Downton Abbey, she’s just as wild and kinky as her son! Made me laugh out loud. 

If you like some bondage with your boyfriends and you’re in agreement with me that with age comes refinement and richness, then you’ll love this story. I did not read the previous books, and though they are all tied together, this read fine as a standalone. Dom of Ages was a pleasure to listen to, Wells and Williams make a great team, and I know I look forward to giving the rest of the series a try!

Reviewer: Prime

Review: As an Aussie, anything set in Australia I am going straight to, particularly when it is a shifter romance. Melbourne Heat is a sexy paranormal romance set in the titular city where Spencer, human, meets Charles, a shifter, by chance at the Melbourne Botanical Gardens. For fans of the paranormal/shape shifter genre this is a fairly satisfying and quick read.

The use of the Australian slang was pretty good, though I have to say there were a few errors that may bug other Aussies, but on the whole it was comforting and amusing to see my kind of “speak” in a MM romance. In fact, there is the amusing misunderstanding between Charles and Spencer when Charles is trying to explain that they are mates, as in “soul mates”. Needless to say Spencer at first think Charles is saying mates as in “friends”. Doctor Who fans think of the Donna Noble telling Ten “you’re not mating with me, sunshine” but in reverse.

The sexual tension and attraction between Spencer and Charles is great. Fans of BDSM books just need to know that although there is the warning of bondage, there is very little actual BDSM and it is very light because the BDSM is not an important aspect in the relationship between Spencer and Charles. However, unfortunately this story suffers from, really, not a lot of character or story development – which is quite sad because I really enjoyed Lapthorne’s writing style.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: A fabulous ending to an amazing series. Olly is struggling to live again after tragic events take place. With the help of Joe, Aidan and Heath, Olly feels somewhat normal. But the damage has been done by Mark yet again. I seriously hated Mark. He was full of himself and so very cruel. 

From Olly’s antics and Joe’s constant support the journey to finalize plans begins. But not all is kosher as Joe gets word that Mark has been released from prison. With a threat looming over their shoulders Joe wants to make sure Olly is protected at all costs. 

I loved the entire book. The humorous antics and the seriousness as well as the twists and turns mixed well to create a masterful story to culminate the ending. Fantastic read. Highly recommended.

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Blurb:  From the moment ex-SAS officer Vicar Hunt met ex-Delta Force officer Lucian Frost, they couldn’t deny their instant attraction. Well, Lucian wasn’t about to deny it—Vicar, on the other hand, wanted to run as far as he could in the opposite direction. Why he ever thought he could fit in around others after all he’d experienced was asinine on his part. A mistake he never planned on making again, if he could just get to the safety of his home.

Lucian stared after the beauty that had run from his shop, Bootilicious, as if the hounds of hell were chasing him. Up until that moment, Lucian had never realized he’d wanted a man in his life. Since entering the military at eighteen, he’d been perfectly content with one-night stands, not having the time for anything more permanent. Now that he’d met Vicar, however, Lucian found himself more than ready to settle down.

Too bad Vicar didn’t feel the same.

Then again, Lucian always did like a challenge.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  Each book in the Cedar Falls Series 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 started reading romance stories at the age of twelve and was always intrigued by the worlds that authors can come up with. Then a few years ago I read my first gay romance and I decided that there was just something about them that I liked more. I, like many, have favorites that we always follow and Shea Balik is one of those authors for me. There is just something about the worlds that she creates that keeps me captivated throughout the whole entire book. So much so that when a new book comes out, I must always start reading the very first book that leads up to this one.

I love how there is a serious tone to it, but that it is equally matched with humor. I can’t stand a book that has no humor in it, I would rather be laughing then just sitting there.  And when you put Jesse and the others in the mix, well you know what crazy stuff is about to come.

Bigfoot is at it again, or so Jesse claims.  Now his friends are lost in the woods looking for him.  When that happens you send in an expert.  Vicar is a moody young man who has lost quite a bit and he stays away from people if he can.  That is until Jesse gets his hands on him.  Then he meets the perfect man for him, but what does he do, he runs.

Lucian can tell from the moment that he met Vicar, that the man was his.  He also knows a wounded soul who needs help and he can provide that.  Now all he has to do is to get the man to stay in one place long enough to claim him. 

To me there is nothing better than a good romance. I love them especially when there are some gorgeous men in some kinky situations. I also love how some of our men come in damaged and the guys will all gang up on him to help him.  You can’t say that Jesse and his group don’t love those around them, because they show it in many ways.  I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series that you can’t put down and have to read more than once. It is the perfect story for me and gave me all that I needed. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story. I had a blast reading it and I can’t wait to read the next story. When Shea puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. I would definitely recommend reading this book. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.
