Making A Spalsh

by

Sean Michael

After a scandal of Olympic proportions, Vince Dawson lost his job as a diving coach and is on a downhill slide. So when he sees Austin Brody at a local pool, diving like a trained athlete, he thinks he’s found his ticket back to the big leagues.

Austin thinks Vince is crazy for wanting him to dive competitively. He dives for beer and smokes, while working double shifts as a welder. Still, he’ll give training with Vince a shot.

But Austin isn’t willing to let Vince rule his life, and Vince—used to hopeful young athletes folding under pressure from him—finds Austin baffling… and hot. Even if they can work together and become more than friends, they still have a long way to go before they’ll be ready to compete.

Golden

by

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.

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.

Way’ra Bernard is only twenty years old when his parents kick him out of the house. He has been brought up to believe being gay is wrong and he is going to go to hell for it. He tried very hard not to be gay but couldn’t change the way he felt. Now he’s living furtively in a closet on the third floor of the place he’s working as a janitor—the Iron Eagle Gym.

Neal McPherson is an unattached Dom in his midtwenties and a member of the gym. One evening after working out, he notices Way’ra on the stairs and he’s immediately attracted and intrigued, so he asks Way’ra out. Unable to come up with a reason to refuse and also interested in Neal, Way’ra accepts.

There are a lot of obstacles to the relationship they attempt to build after their date, not least of which is Way’ra’s upbringing and his lingering doubts about the kinky sex Neal enjoys. But with patience and persistence, Neal might convince Way’ra not only to accept himself, but to loosen his inhibitions enough to explore and find a happy ending together.

Blurb: When easygoing Texas artist Dakin McBride makes his way to Ottawa, Canada, for a showing, he meets Jeff Tamrin, the fastidious manager of the Sussex Gallery. Despite coming from different worlds and being opposites in almost every way, the attraction is immediate, and soon Dakin and Jeff negotiate their own brand of diplomatic relations, forgetting all about art or seeing the sights the city has to offer. They get wrapped up in the moment, each of them intrigued by what he feels for the other.

The more they get to know each other, the more they like what they see. Dakin has a life to go back to in Texas, though, and Jeff has his own in Canada. Is there any way for their budding romance to survive the thousands of miles separating them? The relationship seems doomed, but at the same time, it feels too right to give up without a fight.

Review: Jeff is organising an art show at the gallery he works at when he comes across leather worker artist Dakin, being approached by the sexy Texan has Jeff’s blood heating and Jeff knows he can’t let the opportunity pass. Dakin falls hard and fast for the manager of the gallery hosting his leather work and as the time approaches for him to return to Texas he’s dreading leaving the sexy Canadian behind.

This is a fantastic story of two men connecting instantly but their lives in two different countries threaten to pull them apart. Jeff is an efficient manager and loves his job, meeting one of the artists has him questioning just what he wants out of life. Dakin loves his life on the ranch and selling his leather work helps to pay the bills, meeting Jeff at the gallery has him wishing for more but his roots grow deep in Texas, but can he turn his back on the love he has found.

First of all this book is hot! Jeff and Dakin are explosive together, their attraction jumps off the page and it’s not long before they are jumping into bed! They are a very physical couple but they also connect on an emotional level, their relationship is fast paced and I suppose you could say its insta-love, and I can tell you its insta-lust.

This is a great story for a quick injection of happy easy love, hot sex, hot men and a happy ending… what more could you ask for?

But finding the right person for the job is harder than he thought it would be. When he meets Saw, he thinks he’s found the solution to all his problems, and maybe something more.

Sawyer Whitehead lost his master to a tragic car accident some years ago, and since then one opportunity after another has gone sour on him. Thoroughly convinced he’s cursed and a jinx to everything and everyone he touches, he refuses to officially become Day’s assistant because he knows that as soon as he does, something terrible will happen. He’s even more determined not to get involved with Day, despite his attraction, because it would kill him to be responsible for tragedy befalling the lovely man.

Day must convince Saw that he’s not cursed and that together, they can face any challenge that comes their way—in both their professional and personal partnerships.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Day takes over as manager for the Iron Eagle Gym. He needs help and so hires Saw. Saw lost his master to a terrible car accident and as a result thinks himself as bad luck. It will take a strong man to push through Saw’s barriers and make him see that accidents happen and Saw is not bad luck.

I really liked this story. Day’s persistence in pursuing Saw despite Saw’s reservations was awesome. The way Day was steadfast and determined was admirable. 

I really felt bad for Saw. The way he felt about himself was heartbreaking. I loved that slowly but surely with Day’s help Saw became the man I knew he was. 

These two characters were made for each other. Both were kind and caring toward the other as the story progressed. It showed that despite others reservation that good can come out of bad situations.

Loved it.

Blurb: Who wouldn’t want a do over?

When Thaine wakes up in the hospital after a bull-riding injury, he immediately asks for his lover, Jerry. He has no idea who this man next to his bed is, despite the fact Drew insists they have been an item for the last five years.

Thaine’s best friend, Jesse, calls Jerry. He thinks it’s a pretty crappy thing to do to the new boyfriend, but tells himself it’s unlikely Jerry will come after so many years. He also doesn’t get why Thaine would pass up the opportunity to be with Drew since he’s young, optimistic, and hardworking. In short, everything Jesse ever wanted in a man.

Jerry still carries a torch for his cowboy, so when Thaine asks to go home with him to recover, Jerry agrees. At first they pick up their intense physical relationship right where they left it before the breakup. Jesse, in turn, consoles the now homeless Drew and offers him quite a bit more than a shoulder to cry on. But in the back of all the men’s minds loom Thaine’s lost five years.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: Amnesia by Sean Michael, I have to admit, is pretty much exactly what I expected it to be. In many ways it’s a relaxing read because from just reading the blurb I figured out what was going to happen, i.e. who ends up with whom. For me Sean Michael books go into 2 categories – “love it” or “hate it”, or perhaps more accurately, because I rarely fully outright hate a book, “I can’t put it down” or “can’t keep my interest”. Obviously, considering I’ve given this a good rating, this one falls into the former category.

There are four main players in this book: Thaine (who has amnesia after falling a bull), Drew (the current boyfriend Thaine has no memory of), Jerry (the ex that Thaine thinks they are still together) and Jesse (Thaine’s best friend who wants to protect him from Jerry – who is selfish – yet has feelings for Drew). I honestly think if you’ve read the blurb and read this you have already figured out what happens. For me, though, I am a sucker for the melodrama that comes from the whole amnesia thing and the ex boyfriend swooping in the save the day.

Two things that did piss me off that, however, were all about Jerry. 1) He was an arsehole. Simple as that, but thankfully there is such a thing as character development. 2) When he and Thaine initially broke up 5 years earlier he really didn’t try and so really, Thaine was better off with him. But Amnesia is really all about second chances, because people can change when they have their own epiphanies. In fact, all the characters see things from a different light when their lives are changed the day Thaine are almost killed during competition.

Amnesia, I think, will be a guilty pleasure for anyone who loves the melodrama of amnesia and life or death situations. Also, for anyone who loves a cowboy, you will not be disappointed. In fact, I found myself falling just a little bit in love with Thaine and Jerry… and I find myself wanting to know more about Jesse and Drew.
