Rushing Love

(States of Love 16: South Dakota)
by

Meg Bawden

After a devastating break-up with the man he thought he’d spend his life with, Flynn Webb takes a holiday to a South Dakota dude ranch. It’s something completely different from anything he’s done before, and it helps that it’s as far away from his ex as possible. Trapped in his own depressive thoughts, Flynn is surprised to meet Grayson Harland. Not only is Grayson a sexy cowboy—one fifteen years younger—but he’s the most charming man Flynn has ever met.

Flynn doesn’t have much experience with being seduced, and he has even less with guys like Grayson taking an interest in him—and Grayson is definitely interested. What begins as a fling while visiting iconic South Dakota sights soon develops the potential for much more. But Flynn is afraid that falling in love again so soon—and with a man so much younger—will lead only to another catastrophic heartbreak. Luckily for them both, Grayson isn’t giving up without a fight.

Dating in Retrospect

(States of Love 15: Iowa)
by

Lila Leigh Hunter

Giving the commencement speech at his alma mater doesn’t fit Clay Keller’s meticulous schedule. As Chief Executive Officer of Travel Mogul—the largest travel connoisseur company on the West Coast—he has no time to get back in touch with his country roots. He left fifteen years ago without a second look, but a medical scare makes him change his mind about the speech and brings him face-to-face with his only regret.

Time always moves slower in Southeastern Iowa, and Aaron Grant loves it. He’s added solar farms to the Grant Lanes portfolio and has been teaching at the local university for a decade. The last thing he needs is to have his tenure application compromised by the return of his ex-boyfriend. If he had known who the commencement speaker would be, he would never have volunteered to be the administration liaison.

A proposal—to date for a year—will help them discover that time changes a person, even when everything else stays the same.

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥ 5 Hearts

Blurb: When a serious bout of writer’s block threatens to delay mystery author Drew Daniels’s newest book, his aunt offers her New Orleans apartment in the heart of the French Quarter as a writing retreat. She neglects to mention that it’s occupied by the enigmatic and sexy Finn Murphy, a cemetery tour guide with a penchant for Victorian attire and a Cajun accent. 

A body discovered in an open crypt forces reclusive Drew to deal with Finn’s eccentric group of friends and his underlying attraction to the hot Cajun—despite warnings about Finn’s violent past. Drew might write this stuff, but he’s never had to solve a real-life murder. With a deadline looming and a killer on the loose, this retreat is proving to be anything but helpful for Drew’s novel. Drew can only hope he won’t end up a tragic tale for the Ghostly Legends & Lore, Inc. haunted tour.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Drew travels to historical New Orleans to stay at his aunts place in the hopes of curing his writers block. What he does not expect is for a sexy man, Finn, to already be occupying the space.  Drew finds himself thrust into a real life murder mystery and a slew of suspects to boot. 

I loved Finn’s telling of the history of New Orleans. With its breath-taking beauty yet deadly past it certainly had me intrigued from the start. We get an introduction into the characters in this setting as the investigation to the murder starts. The investigation itself seemed to go as expected. Though this is a novella it was beautifully written with the right amount of history, spookiness and romance that made it an excellent story.

There was nothing about this book I did not like. Highly recommended.

Blurb: Ryder Waites will do anything to keep the tiny town of Gallows Grove, Kentucky, from vanishing off the map—even sell his family’s whiskey recipe to Bluegrass Bourbon in Lexington. Hopeful that the larger company can provide necessary improvements to the distillery, Ryder’s ultimate goal is to get Gallows Grove on the Bourbon Trail… and bring in much-needed tourism revenue. But to keep producing Hanged Man Bourbon in Gallows Grove, he’ll have to convince company liaison, unbearably stuffy and seriously hot Adam Keller, that he’s worth the investment.

Adam comes from an old-money family, but he’s determined to make his own way in the world. When he’s sent to Gallows Grove, he questions the life choices that led him to a rented room in a funeral home, in a town full of macabre-themed businesses. And he doesn’t know what to make of Ryder, the descendant of bootleggers who’s on a mission to save his strange town from extinction. When Adam and Ryder put aside their initial mistrust, the results are as smooth as good whiskey. But after Adam’s assignment ends, he’ll have to decide if small-town life and a future with Ryder is to his tastes.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I haven’t really had a chance to read that many stories from this author so it feels like I am reading a new author for me.  Now as many know I am not really a fan of reading stories by authors that I am not familiar with, however this author is one that will have you laughing throughout most of the story.  

Now I was not a fan of the title and it almost put me off the book to say the least.  Which would have been a major disappointment if I had left it at the title.  But then again I am not a drinker and have never really been a fan of drinking.  Now these two guys, well lets just say they are hot to say just a bit.

Ryder doesn’t want to sell his amazing recipe for Hanged Man Bourbon, must be one hell of a strong drink.  The problem is, well he has no choice.  The town needs money and he wants to be on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, which I don’t really get.  However that is me once more.  He just didn’t care for the man sent to spy on him.  Although another part of his anatomy is turned the hell on with Adam.  Now Adam comes off more stiff upper lip, but deep down inside he is lonely as hell.  He is definitely falling for our Ryder.  Now if you want to know just a bit more, well read the book.

Now over all the story was a blast, but I do wish that it had been a bit longer in length, it was nothing but a tease and a taste of these two sexy men.  It is a fun, romantic, very hot story that will have you wanting a taste of what these two men have going on.  The dolls were a bit quirky too.  I had a lot of fun reading this and look forward to another story by this author.

Reviewer: Pixie

Blurb: Nothing beats getting out of the concrete jungle and into the quiet of the forest. Website designer Scottie Ness is taking a well-deserved vacation from the grindstone, and he plans to spend it in the solitude of Washington’s Gifford Pinchot National Forest around Mt. Adams. He’s prepared for everything—except the lightning storm that traps him in a wildfire.

The firefighter who rescues him sustains serious injuries and ends up in the hospital. Jax Quintero might be abrasive, but the guy saved his life, and Scottie wants to thank him. As they spend time together during Jax’s recovery and exploring the state’s landmarks when he’s released from the hospital, Scottie discovers there’s more to Jax than a smart-ass adrenaline junkie. Jax reassesses his opinion of Scottie as an arrogant city boy who has no business in the mountains. Though Jax’s wounds prevent them from taking things as far as they’d like for a while, they can’t deny the heat building between them—and this is one fire they don’t want to put out.

Review: Scottie loves hiking and taking photos of nature, but he knows better than to be unprepared unfortunately not even Scottie could prepare for a lightning storm, broken tree limbs or the wildfire heading his way. Jax is miffed when his team has to search for a hiker during a wildfire, and he’s furious when he gets injured rescuing the injured hiker.

Scotty and Jax start to become close when they meet in hospital, well, after Jax softens up. Scotty visits the man who saved him often and gets to know the man under the abrasive attitude; Jax admits he might have jumped to conclusions about the man he rescued and enjoys getting to know the man, and it isn’t long before the two embark on a relationship.

This is a great story of two men meeting in dire circumstances and gradually falling in love. Scottie and Jax are great characters, they have a rocky start but quickly become an item, there’s a lot of build-up with the relationship before anything sexual happens and that’s mainly because of Jax’s knee injury but it’s lovely to see them building their relationship on friendship and really getting to know each other first.

Jax is abrasive when we first meet him, he’s fighting a wildfire and a hiker’s missing, he’s frustrated and he comes across as a complete dick but we learn quickly that it’s mainly because he’s worried for his team. Scotty is really easy going and although he did everything he could to keep himself safe during his hike he still falls victim to nature.

The setting for the story comes across vividly with great detail, the roar of the fire, the stifling heat and the fear as flames roar towards their fire shelter is described beautifully.

I recommend this to those who love men growing to love each other, who adore a touch of danger in their stories, who love men getting to know each other before they jump into bed, and a very happy ending.

Review: Chad’s sister is getting married and has invited her best friend Raudel, the man Chad has avoided for years since an excruciatingly embarrassing episode, learning that he has to share a room with the man has him horrified until Ruadel lays all his cards on the table, now the pair just have to live through the crazy bridezilla from hell’s wedding.

This is a brilliant story of two men who have always secretly longed for each other reconnecting and clearing up misunderstandings to finally be together. Along the way they have to face a bride (Lindsey) who’s on the edge, a mother (Kate) who’s been driven to drink and a grandma who just doesn’t give a damn and speaks her mind.

I loved this story, besides having a cute love story between Chad and Raudel we have some laughs from watching a bride become unhinged, a mother coming apart at the seams and a delightfully wicked grandma who doesn’t pull her punches.

Chad and Raudel make a great couple once Chad gets over his embarrassment from the long not ever forgotten incident, they quickly make up for lost time and dive head first into their relationship, in fact so quickly that Lindsey enters the Wrath of bridezilla.

The connection between Chad and Raudel is solid and though they do move quickly it does feel right, it isn’t forced, and you can see how much they love each other… it does surprise in that respect but still feels right.

I recommend this to those who love funny lively stories, who adore stories where love smacks men on the head, who love great characters and a fantastic happy ending.

Hot damn, what more could a country boy want? Bass Pro Shop is finally opening in Tennessee. Nick plans to check out all twelve indoor acres chock-full of hunting, fishing, and boating in the Memphis Pyramid on the Mississippi River.

City boy Sandy wonders yet again how he let himself get talked into attending a grand opening for a hick hunting store. His geeky heart prefers the energy of the city. Little does he know all that is going to change due to a freakishly tall glass elevator—and Nick, the high-school crush who’s suddenly taking a second look at him.

A moment of panic while trapped in the elevator leads to a spark neither expected. Getting out is the least of the challenges they’ll face if they want to try to put their differences aside and find out if love is possible between a city boy and a country boy.

Blurb: The Witness Protection Program dumps JD Smith practically at the ends of the earth—in Two Pines, Alaska—to protect him until he can testify against a dangerous gang. He tries to stick to his story and keep his head down, but it’s impossible to ignore bush pilot Jake Wylder, a sexy loner with quite a reputation around the small town.

Flying medical supplies around Alaska suits Jake’s wild streak and love of freedom. He’s perfectly content to keep his romantic encounters casual—at least until he meets JD. Something about the nurse makes Jake think settling down might not be such a hardship. Now he just needs to convince JD he’s serious—which won’t be easy, given his past.

For a relationship to stand a chance, JD must testify so he can return to Two Pines as the man he really is—and Jake must grow into the man JD needs him to be.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Lucie Archer is a new author for me so I wasn’t too sure what to expect. I have never really been a fan of new authors works but only because I have a certain type of book that I like. When I read the blurb it sounded so good and a bit mysterious to me. I have to admit that when I saw Witness Protection Program I was kind of hoping for love, bad guys and danger. However it doesn’t even come close to the bad guys and danger.

JD Smith is a nurse in Alaska, but in real life he is actually a doctor. A doctor who worked for some pretty bad guys and got caught in a raid. Now he was to spend most of his time in Alaska till the trial. He had not expected to come across a very sexy Jake, nor did he have a clue what to do.

Jake was pretty much a man slut and had slept with both men and women. He had never found that one person to make him want something permanent. That is until he came across JD. Too bad JD is hiding something big from them all. 

Now it is a very cute story but it comes off very stiff, dry and didn’t flow as easy as it should have for me. There was just something missing to make it a great story but not too sure what it was. I read most of it but did skim over parts of it, because the pace of the story was just too slow to keep my interest for long. I was hoping for more action, suspense and danger, however it wasn’t there. I am afraid that this story was just not for me.
