Boston Bauble Party by Susan Laine

Susan Laine - Boston Bauble Party CoverTitle:  Boston Bauble Party

Author: Susan Laine

Genre: Contemporary, Ménage, Erotic

Length: Novella (106pgs)

Publisher: Siren-Bookstrand (28th June 2016)

Heat Level: Explicit

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 3.5 Hearts

Blurb: Liam feels sorely inadequate below the belt. To cheer him up, his roommate and best friend Troy scores for them a special invite to an exclusive and hush-hush Bauble Party held in a classy mansion in one of Boston’s upscale districts. When Liam discovers what the fancy soirée is actually about, he gets nervous and insecure, and wants to leave. Troy convinces him to stay by introducing him to Burton, a wealthy, self-made, clean-tech tycoon—who is also an experienced Dom befitting Liam’s submissive tendencies. It seems Liam and Burton are a match made in kink heaven. But where does that leave Troy with his secret and unrequited love for Liam? Perhaps an unusual party is exactly what these three men with big hearts need in order to learn that size isn’t everything and that they are better off with each other than without.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: I feel I need to write some sort of disclaimer on this one.

If it’s romance you’re after, then this probably isn’t the book for. If you like to read about a sexually explicit night at a sex party, then this is the book for you. I love Susan Laine’s writing and have enjoyed most of her books. To some extent I also enjoyed this one, but for me this is something that you really need to be in the mood for since it is high on the sex and low on the romance.

Best friends Liam and Troy are heading off to an invite only sex party, which Troy is adamant that Liam needs to attend. Liam has major self esteem issues because of how his body looks “below the belt”, a.k.a. his balls, and is willing to go as far as considering cosmetic surgery. Troy, who secretly loves his friend, doesn’t want Liam to mar his perfect body. That is why he is taking Liam to a “bauble party” to meet Burton. Burton himself explains that saying bauble party is much better than hearing teabagging party. Burton has his own imperfections, which makes his particular kink difficult to indulge – until Troy presents the perfect solution in Liam. What ensues is a really kinky three-way.

The romantic in me would have liked fewer details on the sex and would have loved to know about threesome beyond their night together. There is talk of them trying to make a three way relationship work, I just would have liked to have seen it, or had an epilogue to give me a glimpse into possibilities.

Gideon by Ashe Barker

Ashe Parker - Gideon Cover sTitle: Gideon 

Series:  Order of the Black Knights 01

Author: Ashe Barker

Genre: Erotic Romance, Mystery, Suspense

Length: Novel (200 pages)

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (October 5, 2016)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 3.75 – 4 Hearts

Blurb: Gideon Maybury enjoys a life of wealth and privilege, not to mention the advantages his position offers him in his career as a merchant banker and his less public life as a high-class, skilled, and very well-paid assassin for Her Majesty’s government. When his brother dies unexpectedly, he becomes the Duke of Westmoreland.

Michael Mathison has hated Gideon since they were at university together. He’s convinced Gideon had a hand in the death of Michael’s college lover, Christopher, and that he had something to do with the death of his own brother. So he gets a job as Gideon’s driver, enabling him to investigate the circumstances surrounding the death of the elder Maybury sibling. At first his suspicions seem to be confirmed, but clues emerge that suggest all is not as it appears at Maybury Hall.

As the mystery deepens, so does the attraction between the two implacable enemies, as does the feeling that they have met before—under dark and terrible circumstances. Each has reasons not to trust the other, but neither is averse to a bit of kinky play. Gideon and Michael end up owing each other their lives, and it results in consequences neither could have imagined.

Reviewer: Shorty & Pixie

Shorty’s Review: ♥♥♥♥ 3.75 Hearts

I have so many mixed emotions about this book at this moment. Gideon had me cringing with his weird sense of fascination with death. I found it horrifying that he would actually kill animals then move on to humans, no details, just short descriptions, to satisfy that curiosity. It was almost like reading the makings of a serial killer, at least that’s how I saw him as.

Michael thinks Gideon had something to with his ex-boyfriends death as well as Gideon’s own brother. It was hard for me to connect with either of these characters as one was a sociopath and the other I did not understand how he could suspect one of murdering two people yet sleep with him.

Gideon is reborn every time he dies as the result of being a mysterious man’s minion. But I believe he already had the murdering instinct well before his first meeting with the man who changed him. Gideon’s character gave me the creeps at his lack of empathy for human life. 

Did I hate the book or love it, the answer is neither yes or no because I don’t know. It was well written I will say that. 

Pixie’s Review: ♥♥♥♥ 4 Hearts

Gideon is a lot of a sociopath, he takes pleasure in pushing the boundaries in all matters including death, and he uses those skills well in his clandestine job for the Government. When someone seems to be out to get him Gideon has no idea who it might be, and it isn’t long before his new driver comes under suspicion especially when Gideon discovers the man isn’t who he says he is.

Michael loathes Gideon with a passion, he truly believes that Gideon got away with murdering his ex-boyfriend and when Gideon’s brother dies Michael isn’t about to let Gideon get away with murder again.

I enjoyed this story and found both character equally as hard to get, I mean Gideon just seems to have no real emotions for anyone or anything, seeming indifferent to anything that isn’t centred on him. Michael is just as hard to get as he loathes Gideon but quickly changes his tune to f**k him, he seems determined to get one over on Gideon but then seems to be quite blasé when he thinks Gideon is a hitman.

The storyline surrounding Gideon and Michael is a really good one, and I thought that their relationship suited them both as they slowly warmed up to each other. I liked seeing them work together and figure out who is after Gideon even as they are adversaries.

We do get a little information on the Order of the Black Knights… and it wasn’t really what I was expecting at all. It’s all shrouded in mystery, a dash of paranormal and being stuck in a recurring cycle of death. Gideon made a deal which he’s bound by, he has to forgive his enemy rather than kill him to break the contract and with each cycle he gets colder and colder becoming numb to his feelings.

I’d recommend this to those who want something different, with a dash of hot sex and adversaries who turn to lovers, oh and a great ending.

The Mystery of Nevermore by C.S. Poe

Series: Snow & Winter 01

Author: C.S. Poe

Length: Novel (216pgs)

Reviewer: Pixie

Blurb: It’s Christmas, and all antique dealer Sebastian Snow wants is for his business to make money and to save his floundering relationship with closeted CSU detective Neil Millett. When Snow’s Antique Emporium is broken into and a heart is found under the floorboards, Sebastian can’t let the mystery rest.

He soon finds himself caught up in murder investigations that echo the macabre stories of Edgar Allan Poe. To make matters worse, Sebastian’s sleuthing is causing his relationship with Neil to crumble, while at the same time he’s falling hard for the lead detective on the case, Calvin Winter. Sebastian and Calvin must work together to unravel the mystery behind the killings, despite the mounting danger and sexual tension, before Sebastian becomes the next victim.  

In the end, Sebastian only wants to get out of this mess alive and live happily ever after with Calvin.

Review: Sebastian finds himself in the middle of a murder investigation when his antique shop is broken into and a heart is left under the floorboards, his closeted cop boyfriend Neil is furious when Sebastian reveals their relationship to the detective investigating the case. As Sebastian investigates the murders himself after connecting them to Edgar Allan Poe stories his relationship with Neil crumbles and Sebastian finds himself attracted to the detective, Calvin Winter.

This is a great story that has mystery and suspense that is beautifully interwoven, and it has a dash of new romance that is low key but outstanding. Sebastian Snow has a low key life; he loves his antiques store, is frustrated with his relationship and has a bit of a sassy mouth on him. When he stumbles on a murder investigation he can’t help himself but become involved and it proves to be the straw that breaks his relationship into tiny pieces.

Calvin Winter is also a closeted cop; he keeps to himself a lot and just wants to do his job. With Sebastian turning up a lot in his murder investigation he doesn’t know if he should lock him up or kiss him.

The Mystery of Nevermore is a great mystery & suspense story that leaves us guessing the why and the who until Sebastian slowly puts the pieces together and revealing the story to us. We do get ideas about who the culprit might be but the why is something that we learn later, it’s really well written and we put everything together as Sebastian does so we become invested in the story.

Sebastian is a lovely character who we can take to heart, he’s in a crappy relationship with Neil and with the way that Neil treats Sebastian we quickly hope that Sebastian will kick him to the kerb, the thing is though when it did happen I kind of felt sorry for Neil. Calvin is kind of standoffish so getting to know him is near impossible, it isn’t till near the end that you actually feel like he’d be a good fit for Sebastian.

I was really happy with the way this story was written, the mystery, suspense and Sebastian were front and centre with Sebastian’s relationship woes being in the background but both balanced really well, with the murders and investigation showcased but occasionally stepping back and allowing the relationship demise/ budding new romance to step forward and take the spotlight. It was fantastically crafted.

I recommend this to those who love mysteries and suspense’s, who love great characters, who adore strong storylines with a dash of new romance and a touch of danger.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: On the hunt for a sick killer called the Confessor who lures gay men, kidnaps, tortures and kills them for the homosexuality gets serious when evidence technician Lief Carson’s boyfriend Rafe is taken by the maniac. Carson is more determined than ever to find the killer before he kills Rafe.

I loved this story. It was an edge of your seat book that pulled no punches. The evidence was disturbing, the investigation intense and the killer was straight up crazy. I loved the entire book. 

This book has suspense, mystery, romance and breath holding scenes. I’m definitely looking forward to reading more in this series.

Highly recommended.

Reviewer: Lisa & Pixie

Lisa’s Review: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

This is the first story by this author that I have read and I must say I am ecstatic about it. Although I have to tell you that I was thinking sexy man in a uniform, hot sex and so forth. That is not what this story is about; there is romance to it, but more action, suspense and danger then anything.

Simon Monk is ex-army, ex-delta force who was drummed out when his lover turned out to be a traitor to their country. He had finished five tours in Afghanistan and ended up working for the CIA in a way. He was sent to kill those who posed a danger to others. He is extremely lethal and hard to kill.

This story is an action packed one with espionage, assassinations and deadly men. Egypt is not known for allowing gays so when a known married couple are assassinated, it is time for Simon to step in. He is ordered to lead the investigation. However, in what would seem like a case of homophobic hate, the situation has turned into something more dangerous. Someone wants to take over Egypt and it is up to Simon and Ben to stop them.

If you like dangerous situations, espionage, politics, foreign relationship, traitors, spies and so forth then this is the book for you. This story turned out to be quite extensive in how long the author had to do research. The plot is so damn twisted and complex, but it works for this particular story. The details were fully developed and so damn well designed that it was jaw dropping. The pace is a little off to me though.

I had trouble concentrating on the story because it was a slow building story. If you’re looking for hot sex then you might want to read another story because this is more about the action, suspense, danger and assassinations. Although the author seemed to be really into details because I thought some of it was just not needed. It took away from the story itself for me. Also the fact that women were in it, not as sexual characters but as military and so forth was a bit strange to me, I just could not see the bad guys having a female assassin or spy or infiltrator or whatever she was.

I understand that this is a series, but I am afraid that as well written that this story is, it was not for me. If you are into military and war stories though, this will be for you, but it is not really a romance story.

Pixie’s Review: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

I agree with a lot of Lisa’s review, this story is action pack, with a lot of dangerous situations, espionage, political minefields, foreign relationship, traitors and spies. The story flows smoothly and it’s pretty fast paced for the type of storyline.

The story is really all about Simon Monk; nearly everything that happens happens around him with a couple of scenes with other characters highlighted to move the storyline along. Monk’s love interest is a man called Ben Namajunas, Special Forces, who is called in to help Monk with his mission. Ben and Monk have a long history and this time around Ben longs for something more from Monk rather than brief sexy times together. 

Whereas Lisa finds it strange that women are used as strong key characters whatever their role, I found it to be quite refreshing that women were fit into roles that many authors would have left to men. The only thing that irked me was that the women were all stunningly beautiful; I’d have liked it if at least one of them was a ‘plain Jane’.

The storyline is strong; it keeps you gripped as it drags you along after Monk, dodging bodies, bombs, gunfire and traitors. The relationship between Monk and Ben was low key throughout the story, hanging around in the background with just a hint every now and again to keep the interest piqued. I loved the way the story was built; layers were added with every chapter until you had a full picture of Monk and what his life entails. I can’t wait for the next book in the series.

I recommend this to those who love mystery and suspense laced with action and danger, who adore in depth characters, who love a solid storyline that is laced with just a bit of budding relationships.

The Art of Hero Worship

by

Mia Kerick

Trembling on the floor, pressed beneath a row of seats in a dark theater, college freshman Jason Tripp listens to the terrifying sound of gunshots, as an unknown shooter moves methodically through the theater, randomly murdering men, women, and children attending a student performance of Hamlet. Junior Liam Norcross drapes his massive body on top of Jason, sheltering the younger man from the deathly hail of bullets, risking his life willingly and maybe even eagerly.

As a result of the shared horror, an extraordinary bond forms between the two young men, which causes discomfort for family and friends, as well as for Jason and Liam, themselves. And added to the challenge of two previously “straight” men falling into a same-sex love, are the complications that arise from the abundance of secrets Liam holds with regard to a past family tragedy. The fledgling passion between the men seems bound to fade away into the darkness from which it emerged.

Jason, however, is inexplicably called to rescue his hero in return, by delving into Liam’s shady past and uncovering the mystery that compels the older man to act as the college town’s selfless savior.

The Art of Hero Worship takes the reader on a voyage from the dark and chilling chaos that accompanies a mass shooting to the thrill of an unexpected and sensual romance.

The Backup

by

Erica Kudisch

I’m supposed to be better than this. I’m supposed to have a tenure-track job teaching music history to undergrads, writing papers about Bach, and proving to kids like me that you can work your way out of Harlem. I’m not supposed to be following a rock star around the country, fetching his mail, making sure his groupies are of age.

I’m definitely not supposed to be sleeping with said rock star, who claims to be the Greek God Dionysus. At first I thought it was a load of crap. Nik’s fans might think his music captures their hearts—and souls—but I knew better. Until one of Nik’s orgiastic concerts gets out of hand and I don’t know which is worse: that he might be a god after all, or that he has a body count.

Nik doesn’t care what I want or what I should be. He wants to tear down the world I’ve built, warping all I am, until his music is all that’s left of me. I can’t let him do that. I shouldn’t believe in him. I’ve seen what happens to the people who believe in him.

But I can’t get his song out of my head.

(Spirit of Grace 01)
by

Adrian J. Smith

Being a Sheriff’s Deputy is not all about saving lives and arresting criminals, and each day Grace wonders if she’ll make it home.

While kids at the schools Deputy Grace Halling visits see her as the knight in blue-cotton armor, people involved in the cases she is dispatched to have a different opinion. She has every confidence in her ability to do her job and arrest criminals. She easily takes down a knife-wielding woman and a drunken combatant teenager without hesitation. Everyone—victim, suspect, or witness—has a story to tell or to lie about, and Grace is never perturbed by their tales.

That all changes when she looks down the barrel of a gun. She loses confidence in her ability as a deputy, she loses trust in herself and fellow officers, and she struggles to stay afloat as shift after shift passes. Grace cannot find her rhythm of being a deputy again. And when the Police Chaplain unexpectedly barges into her life, her personal and professional lives are flipped upside down. Grace struggles to find her even ground, worrying that the next time she stares a murderer in the face will be the last.

Wulf Francu Godgluck - Of Gods And Monsters; Hades Cover

Hades

(Monsters and Gods 02)

Wulf Francu Godgluck

******WARNING******* 
This is not a story about a hero, or some bad boy-badass-antihero. 
This is a love story between two monstrous villains and one valiant kid, held together by their entwined heartstrings. 
It won’t be pretty. 
It won’t be pleasant. 
There’s no fluffy good feelings about it. 
It will rip out your heart and never give it back. 
Breno Hades el Oscuro took no bullshit from anyone. He ruled the crime world of the United States. When the King fell, what was left in the ashes was not the small boy that grew up without his father, not the same kid that chose a life of crime at seventeen, nor was it the King who had killed and clawed through a river of blood to stand at the top. 
The King was dragged from his throne of bones into a deep dark pit, leaving only the raw flesh of a savage monster to crawl out of Hell. 
One that knew love, but didn’t want it again. 
Kemono Orochi was destined to inherit the legacy of his father, known as The Dragon’s Tongue. It was an inheritance he never wanted it, never desiring the power that came with the title of Dragon. Kemono ended it all by tearing off the Dragon’s head, watching the serpent’s remains be consumed in hellfire. Now tormented by the scars of his past inflicted by his father, he is struggling to come to terms with the Akuma he has become. 
One that wants to devour everyone in his path to protect the only one that matters to him. 
The only person that had ever made his icy heart beat. 
His heart. His love. His beautiful pride. 
Rex Hunter dreams of becoming a principal ballerino…all fierce, like a Phoenix. But this Phoenix has lost his wings and fallen prey, straight into the clutched claws and callus hands of two vicious beasts. Each bore the blackest of hearts, each desiring to keep him safe, cherished and loved unconditionally. Or was Rex just destined to be the goo that would stick two shattered souls together and prevent them from forever falling to pieces? 
There will be blood, gore and nasty shit. 
There will be watersports, crude, angry, sometimes sensual and other times just downright dirty and dysfunctional sex. 
BUT…

Because even villains understand the tortured scars love leaves in her wake.

Cari Waites - Stealing Innocents 600x900

Stealing Innocents

by

Cari Waites

Those who dare to scratch the surface of ordinary, everyday life may be horrified to find a sick underbelly beneath—a nightmare world populated by villains and victims, predators and prey, where the rules of society no longer apply.

Where you’ll find people like Danny, the boy who sells himself to pay for his father’s gambling debts and ends up in a situation more twisted than he ever imagined. Or Troy, the cop whose obsession with saving a brutalized human trafficking victim turns deadly. Or Drew, the mental patient who begins to suspect his nightly delusions of abuse by his doctor are actually real. Or David, the cuckolded husband who decides the best way to get revenge is to seduce his wife’s barely legal son.

Stealing Innocents is an exploration of our darkest human impulses, where sex is power, love is horror, and there’s no such thing as a happy ending.

This collection contains edited second editions three stories that were previously individually published, plus one all-new story, by Lisa Henry writing as Cari Waites.
