A Matchless Man by Ariel Tachna

Series: Dreamspun Desire 19 / Lexington Lovers 02

Author: Ariel Tachna

Genre: Contemporary

Length: Novella (165pgs)

ISBN: 978-1-63477-370-6

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (1st October 2016)

Heat Level: Low

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥ 3 ½ Hearts

Reviewer: Pixie

Blurb: None of the matches caught his eye as much as the matchmaker himself.

Growing up poorer than poor didn’t leave Navashen Bhattathiri many options for life outside of school. All of his concentration was on keeping his scholarships. Sixteen years later, he’s fulfilled his dream and become a doctor. Now he’s returning home to Lexington and is ready to prove himself to the world. In doing so, he reconnects with Brent Carpenter—high school classmate, real estate agent, all-around great guy… and closet matchmaker.

Brent makes it his mission to help Navashen develop a social life and meet available, interesting men. Unfortunately Navashen’s schedule is unpredictable, and few of those available, interesting men value his dedication like Brent does. Brent’s unfailing friendship and support convince Navashen he’s the one, but can he capture Brent’s heart when the matchmaker is focused on finding Navashen another man?

Review: When Navashen moves back to Lexington, where he grew up, his first point of contact is Brent an old school classmate and real estate agent. Brent is keen to make Navashen feel welcome and sets about helping Navashen find a social life that doesn’t revolve around his work, and maybe helping him to find a man to spend time with.

Navashen is just happy to spend time with Brent and he loves the way that Brent treats his younger brother and wishes Brent would look his way for more than just friendship. When Navashen finally gets the courage to ask Brent out things start to look up, until Brent overhears Navashen’s mother and Brent’s insecurities take over,

This is a cute little story of friends to lovers, but I wouldn’t say it actually fit in with the Dreamspun Desire line; it missed its mark for being a romance as there really wasn’t any and I couldn’t feel any romantic connection between Navashen and Brent. Maybe if we also got Brent’s view point I could have seen his true feelings for Navashen but almost from the moment Navashen moved back to Lexington Brent seemed determined to hook him up with someone else.

Navashen does show his feelings for Brent in a subdued fashion, he just doesn’t think that Brent would be interested in him, so it’s actually through Navashen’s frustration that he and Brent get together and we learn that Brent felt the same way. We then have the hiccup with Brent’s insecurities and again it’s Navashen who has to make the effort, it was frustrating for me as a reader not to be able to smack Brent for being such a dickweed.

While I liked Navashen and Brent as characters it’s actually Akshat (Navashen’s younger brother) that steals the show, he is so amazingly sweet and loving and it’s wonderful to see his progress through the story as he finds his independence with Navashen’s help. So while I don’t rate this story very high for the actually ‘romance’ I do rate it highly for Navashen and Akshat and their brotherly relationship.

Reviewer: Lisa 

Review: Each book in the Rescue For Hire West collection features a different romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order. To get a better look at them, I would suggest reading Rescue For Hire first. There you will meet the original characters and learn how the west was born. 

I came across Rescue for Hire not too long ago and can honestly say that they are probably one of my favorite series to read. So when I saw that Bellann was writing a new one that was connected I had to jump on it. Rescue for Hire West has definitely been a hit for me. Not only because they have the past military history, so you know that these men are strong, but they also have the heart. There is always danger mixed into the love story which to me makes for a better story. I also love the fact that once they are on the team the become family and those that they fall in love with automatically become family also. They will protect their family with every bit of power that they have. 

This book just grabs your attention from the moment you start reading and keeps it there till you have read every word. Hell my attention is caught by the cover right off the bat. They will also have you laughing at parts of the story. 

Most people run to join the circus, but Rhys ran away from it. He was eighteen and wanted to join the Army and his grandfather refused. With the help of his cousin and a sexy stranger, he managed to get away. One magical night with that stranger and then to be abandoned the next morning left Rhys in a bitter mood. Now ten years later, he is face to face with that stranger. And damn if Joe didn’t remind him of that special night.

Joe was nineteen and knew that they were going end up going in separate directions. Rhys was joining the Army whereas Joe was going to be a seal. He had known love happened fast, but his life was going to mean something. Now ten years later and he was going to be working for Rescue For Hire West, and with the man he had fallen in love with so long ago. Now all he had to do is to get Rhys to forgive him.

This book gave me everything I could ask for in a story and so much more. I just wished that there were more to read, I absolutely hate having to wait for the next story. **Hint Hint for Bellann, come on girly give me another book to read.** I loved this one and cannot wait for the next amazing story. I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series, one that I will have to read over and over. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story. It was the perfect story for me and I loved it.

When Bellann puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Balancing Act

(Shooting Stars 04)
by

K. Vale

Greg Dwyer and Kyrie Li are living the glorious couple life in New York City. Or are they? When struggling actor Kyrie lands a modeling job, he’s ecstatic to have extra cash to spend on his best-friend-turned-boyfriend.

Of course, Greg is suspicious Anders Berglund, the gorgeous and androgynous Swedish cover model the designers love to pair with Kyrie, is after his man. And maybe Kyrie encourages a growing closeness with the guy?

Greg is probably to blame if Kyrie is drawn to the openly gay and seriously beautiful Andy. With Andy, Kyrie can be himself, as loud and proud as he’s always been. But Greg’s sexuality stays firmly locked in the closest except when he’s with Kyrie’s supportive family or alone with the man he loves.

To make matters worse, Greg’s out-of-touch mom meets with financial ruin and moves in with the couple, forcing him into the closet in his own home.

Can Greg find a way to stand up to Mommy Dearest and win back a love he fought so hard to reach? He discovers the road to pride begins at home and with accepting oneself first. Otherwise, it’s just a dead-end street.

Each tear drop in the eye means that the person has spent ten years in prison, so that was the only thing I noticed. Other than that it rocked as usual.

Carson had at one time been with Jimmy and had cheated on him big time. He had even screwed around with Jimmy’s brother. He had wanted revenge, but in the end had said no. He was tortured by the man who he had been with so much so that he had wanted death. Now here he was, living with the men who had saved him. This of course meant that he was also living with the two men he had hurt. The one that had helped the most was an angel to him, and he was scared of going forward with Isaiah.

Isaiah was one of the deadliest men in the rescue business. He knew how to kill using any weapon, but he needed to use his brain to help the one man who was meant to be his. I loved the rescue part the most and of course Jimmy kicking ass.

This book gave me everything I could ask for in a story and so much more. I just wished that there were more to read, I absolutely hate having to wait for the next story.

Hint Hint for Bellann. Come on girly, give me another book to read.

Cozzi Cove: Moving Forward by Joe Cosentino

Genre:  Contemporary/ Interracial Romance

Length: 231 pages

Publisher: NineStar Press (April 16, 2016)

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Blurb: On Cozzi Cove at the New Jersey Shore, handsome Cal Cozzi’s seven bungalows are once again open for summer and love.

The vacationers include Rodney Maxwell and Dennis O’Halloran, a Tony Award-winning actor and his estranged producer/husband with their two hired studs, Jarek and Zeus. Computer analyst Sam enlists his best friend Chase in a scheme to attract hunky Raul. Middle aged Gil Van Truren wants to end it all—until he sees a vision of his first love.

Cal also has his hands full with college student Michael—his new young lover—Michael’s study buddy Carlo, man of mystery George Valis, and Connor, the houseboy packed with muscles and a wondering sponge. All the while Hunter, a female gay romance novel enthusiast, experiences gay life off the page.

What secrets, humor, tragedy, mysteries, and passions lie in the magical place called Cozzi Cove?

Warning: Infidelity

Product Link: http://ninestarpress.com/product/cozzi-cove-moving-forward/

Reviewer: Cat

Review: In the magical world of Cozzi Cove, a vacation paradise for gay men in a very gay-friendly town anything and everything can happen. It isn’t all sweetness though. There is jealousy, heartache, illness, lost love, new love, broken relationships, and of course some hot man-sex.

With seven bungalows there are guests of all sorts. This time, we even have a cute female that wants to live in the world of her romance novels. There are secrets to reveal, tension in Cal and Michael’s relationship, and of course Connor for a bit of humor. One of the guests comes to end it all after the loss of his husband and being fired for being gay and finding out he has Parkinson until he sees his first love swimming nude in the Cove at night…just like he was in College.

Moving forward is like eight mini stories in one and each is as good as a full story. Plus we have the townspeople as well. Lots of fabulous characters of all persuasions. The story is so fast-paced and engrossing that it’s over before you know it and  makes you want more.

If you like interracial romance, angst, a touch of humor, jealousy, personal trainers, architects, beach resorts and lots of sexy men you will love this story.

Heat Level: Moderate

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts

Blurb: Opposites really do attract.

Unlike the popular bank, Chase Whittaker has no money. However, living on the northwest side of Chicago in a rundown building with no car, and no savings hasn’t made him totally undesirable. His good looks and charm make up for everything he seems to lack. Still, it’s not enough to stop his landlord from threatening to sell the building where he owns the store his grandfather opened.

Micah Strickland is the child of famous football player Thomas Strickland and a ghostwriter. Though he’s never hurting for money, He can’t seem to find a man who wants the same things he does. Insecurities about being accepted as a gay and black man also prohibit him from being happy. He does everything to prove he fits in and even after all that, Micah hasn’t found anyone who’s interested in a committed relationship.

When Micah visits Chase’s shop, the sparks fly almost immediately. Chase makes Micah feel special and seems to understand Micah’s battle with wanting to be accepted. But the possible relocation of the bookstore is a dark cloud over their budding romance.

As one issue lends itself to another, Micah finds himself battling what he’s feeling for Chase and loyalties to his father.

The question now becomes, will he be able to honor his father without losing the man he’s come to love?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: The first thing that caught my eye on this story was cover. Those two guys just smoke it up and damn they are nice to look at. Then there is the title and I have to say that it was right on spot for this cute story. I enjoyed the serious tone that it had but the humor is what had me going. I loved how the guys seemed a bit tongue-tied around each other in the first part. I also loved the fact that Micah’s best friend was pushing him just a tad in the beginning. It cracked me up.

Chase’s grandfather had owned the store that Chase was now running. It isn’t going as good as it should and he is close to losing the business. He is a sexy Adonis, but the man was broke. He had no car and no savings, so he feared he had no options. He wasn’t so sure if he would even have a good chance at Micah, but damn he was positive.

Micah’s father is the famous football player, so he has some big shoes to fill. He isn’t as sure of himself as he appears and is a bit insecure what with being gay and black. Then he walks into the shop with his best friend and finds himself staring at one sexy man. Each man has some issues that need to be dealt with, one being Chase’s shop. They need to show each other which is more important.

This was quite a bit of fun for me and I was glad to have had a chance to read this amazing story. It rocked and I loved how Chase was with the elderly man who lost his music in the fire. He might be messy as hell but his heart is big.

I loved this book and would definitely recommend it.

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press (01-26-2016)
Heat Level: Moderate
Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts
Blurb: Everyone in Mangrove, Florida, knows Fire Chief Essien Dodd is a saint. He took care of his ex-wife until she died, is raising his teenage daughter alone, and is the kind of man who pulls kittens from trees. All in all, the man’s a catch. But Roark Hammond has sworn off getting involved with a man who’s been hurt before because he can’t guarantee he won’t hurt his prospective love again. If only he could get Essien out of his mind long enough to focus on anyone, or anything, else.

Strong emotions are in play. Essien is lonely but determined to focus on Ivy; Ivy wants her father to have a new life so much that, to his horror, she’s trying to find him a man; and Roark is so scared of the present and past, he won’t allow himself to commit.

To have any chance of sleeping ’til sunrise and greeting each new day together, Essien and Roark will have to rethink how they’re living their lives and focus on what’s most important.

http://amzn.to/1XCJPFq

Reviewer: Tams

Review: Essien Dodd stood by his ex-wife when she fell ill with cancer, living up to his vows, even after the promise had been rendered null and void. He took the job as Fire Chief in Mangrove hoping to start a new life for himself and his daughter, away from the city and the reminders of the mother Ivy misses.

Essien and Ivy quickly made friends and were brought into the “family” circle that is the warm, welcome and loving atmosphere of the small town. Es vowed to remain single and devote all his attention to his daughter until she goes off to college. There is one person in particular that is making that vow very hard to keep, town doctor Roark Hammond.

Roark has sworn off relationships as well, be for a far deeper reason. He’s loved the towns gorgeous Fire Chief from afar for a while, but refuses to put any more pain on the man’s plate. Too bad that Ivy, Essien’s fourteen year old daughter turned match maker for her lonely daddy, didn’t get the memo.

Lord love a duck, the sexual tension between these two was palpable. The scene at the coffee shop, yow-za! I could feel the chemistry between these two through my ear buds. Tremblay truly brought these characters to life in my mind. I could completely understand why both men hesitated, they each had valid reasons.

It doesn’t take them long to realize that the heart wants, what the heart wants, and neither of them are strong enough to resist the pull. As usual, Tremblay does an amazing job at bringing the various characters to life while bringing all the voices he has given characters in the previous books over into this story.

While this story is a little heavier than the previous books in the series, there is still that light-hearted air and slightly comical approach to the situation.

I can’t recommend this series, Author or Narrator enough.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I have read one or two books by this author and she definitely has a flare at telling a story. I thought that the cover was refreshing and the title cute. Then I read the blurb and was just a bit apprehensive, because what I wanted was a true love story. This has a good way going, but the ending was a bit of a disappointment for me. It doesn’t leave you hanging, but in a way it tells me that there might just be a second book coming out. Which for me is a downside, don’t mind series, but not when it is about the same couple. Guess I will see what Deanna does later.

Paul is a forty-eight year old gay man who wants someone for himself. The thing with him is he doesn’t want marriage but does want the man. He is going to open another gallery but decides since he is going to do so, he might see if there is someone to hook up with. So he uses the one that he had used for his best friend. He was surprised to find Josef and was very pleased.

Josef runs a hot exotic bar for gay men in the Caribbean. Lots of hot sex and some kinky times, but he has a secret on the side. When he meets Paul it is instant lust. Things heat up but the past has a way of showing up and kicking you in the ass.

There were a few issues I had with the story that doesn’t sit well for me. I don’t like drugs and when they are mentioned in a story I usually avoid the rest of the book. It didn’t really take away from the story, but I am afraid my attention wavered quite a bit.

However that is just me, the story itself was pretty damn good. It shows sexy men that have a softer side to them and for me that is a plus.

It was a fun read and I would definitely like to see what other stories this author has out. I would recommend reading this cute little story.

Blurb: Out of the Cage: Lifting the spirits of another can lift your own spirits, too.

Hector is fresh out of a cage for the first time in his memory. Learning about the world is exciting and scary, and he looks forward to experiencing life. While out having fun with his flock-mates, Hector runs across a human, Rocky, who smells amazing and makes his Scops owl flutter wildly inside his mind.

Except, the guy turns down his request to dance. He learns later that Rocky is a bouncer, so he’s at the bar working. Wanting to catch him either before or after his shift, Hector begins to regularly frequent the club. Unfortunately, that earns him the reputation of being a party-boy, which causes Rocky to keep his distance. The human claims he has responsibilities which a partier wouldn’t understand.

How can Hector, so new to freedom, convince Rocky that he can handle responsibility when the human won’t even tell him what it is?

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

There is a lot of action, danger, suspense and a bit of kink in this book. I love how it has that serious tone to it but there is so much humor in it that your attention is captivated throughout it all. I have got to say that owls are just so cute. I loved the cover and that was what caught my attention first. Although to be honest any book that Charlie writes is automatically bought by me. I just can’t seem to get enough of her stories.

Hector and his friends are bird shifters and have spent most of their lives in cages. Hector doesn’t even remember what it was like to be a child. Now that they have been freed, he is trying to learn as much as he can. He has found his mate, but every time he asks him to date, Rocky turns him down.

Rocky has his eyes on Hector but doesn’t want a one night stand. He has a small child to think of and he doesn’t want to bring someone in just to get hurt. However he decides to give the little man a date to see. Let’s just say his eyes are about to be opened wide. He is mated to a cute little owl shifter whose heart is out there for anyone to see.

I can honestly tell you that this is going to be one of those types of series. One that I will have to read over and over. I love the way all the feelings they felt was involved in this story. It was the perfect story for me and I loved it. I can’t wait to read the next story.

When Charlie puts out a book I am usually there to eat them up. Trust me it will keep you laughing, crying, loving and having fun.

Review: Fai is a new author for me so I was a bit leery of reading it. I wasn’t sure what to expect, however I did find myself enjoying it. Although I have to tell you that I wanted to throw it during parts of it.

The first thing I want to say is that Fox’s mother is a major bitch. She gives the wicked mother a kick in the ass, because this woman was top dog. Fox on the other hands was a dream to read about or should I say I thought he was. Now Fox is straight as an arrow. That is until he meets Tommie.

He was dating Audrey and was happy with her. Audrey however is a strange duck. I mean really no sex is a bit strange. Then there is the crying, which is why I can’t stand females in a story. Although this one was a bit off. Fox however is a bit odd with her. I mean controlling, demanding and acts like a bit of a douche to her.

Then the truth comes out and it explains why Audrey never wanted sex with Fox. Audrey is in fact Tommie. Fox is in fact more of an ass to Tommie then he was when he thought Tommie was Audrey.

Let’s just say you really have to read this book. I wasn’t sure at first if I was going to end up liking this story or not. Although they have trouble communicating and Fox is an ass, these two find the perfect ending for each other. I ended up enjoying this book a lot more than I thought I would.

I would definitely recommend it.

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

Jarrett is one of those types who love screwing men and then leaving their asses behind. If you look closer it is more out of fear then him being an ass. However he comes off as an ass, throughout most of the book though. He knows who his mate is, and pretty much tells him they can’t be together other than sex.

Now Ryder is a beautiful white cat who wants his mate. He has a few choices, but the one choice he makes might just be the last. To top it off some bitch is saying that Jarrett is the father of her child. Things are going to be sparking soon.

They do have a bit of a serious tone to them but there is a touch of humor in them that I love. It gave me everything I could want in a book. I would definitely recommend reading this book. Like I said above this one was told a bit different from the others, so there was a bit of a twist to them. I think of all the books, this one the one I like the most.

I can’t wait to get my hands on the next story.
