#NewRelease #Review #BookPromo – Hidden Scars (An MM Hockey Romance) by Andi Jaxon

Charles Preston Carmichael is the most infuriating man I’ve ever met.

I want to sock the golden boy of college hockey right in the mouth.

He enjoys telling me everything I’m messing up. Publicly.

And since he’s my roommate for the next year, I can’t avoid him.

Yet there’s something about him that makes me watch him.

Something dark.

A secret I want to uncover.

When he returns from a weekend away, broken and haunted, I can’t keep my distance anymore.

He needs someone and I’ll be damned if it’s not me.

Soon my life no longer revolves around hockey, but the nightmares he’s living with.

Desperately I want to save him but I can’t, not yet. The timing has to be just right.

Can I watch him destroy himself as he tries to hold tight to the things that matter or will I be the final hit in the destruction of his life?
Hidden scars is an MM enemies to lovers, hockey romance, with a jealous f*ck buddy, and plenty of heat.
Trigger warnings can be found on my website at https://www.andijaxon.com/trigger-warnings

I thought Roman in Bully King was broken, haunted and outright mean. Boy was I ever wrong. Preston is worse. Much much worse. First, I just want to say that if you have triggers, PLEASE read this book with caution. I believe Andi has trigger warnings for this book on her website but I’m not 100% on that.

I can read anything and I don’t have triggers at all but the prologue to this book made even me feel very uncomfortable.

I’m a huge fan of Andi Jaxon’s MM books. I thought Bully King was my favourite and then this one came along and it’s definitely pushed BK out of the #1 spot for me.

This story is dark mixed with a sliver of light. It’s grumpy/sunshine and that’s not an exaggeration. Jeremy is the sunshine that Preston needs. Andi wrote Preston perfectly and what happens to him is beyond tragic. His dad needs to be shot and peed on.

As far as I know, this story is a standalone but there are some side characters that I would love to see stories for. A little MFM action could take place between a set of twins and a lady. Hint hint, Andi. Hint hint.

I really enjoyed this book and I can’t wait for more from Andi. This story is the perfect amount of steam and plot. One doesn’t over rule the other either.

If you’re a fan of MM books, I highly recommend checking this one out!

#wotr #newrelease #mm #standalone Rebound by Kate Hawthorne 

They say the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else… 
 
At least that’s what Ben is trying to convince himself. Ready to put his ex-boyfriend in the rear view for good, he connects with a handsome older man who’s only interested in something quick and casual. Their rules are simple—no strings, no feelings, and absolutely no kissing. 
 
Thomas has never been with a man before, but in the midst of divorcing his estranged wife, he knows it’s something he is ready to act on. He’s wondered for years if his attraction to men is something real, so hooking up with an experienced and gorgeous younger man seems like a surefire way to find out. Better yet, it’ll kill two birds with one stone: exploring the depths of his midlife awakening and moving forward into a brand kind of new life. 
 
One time together turns into two times, and two turns into something regular, but the rules still apply… until they don’t. Late night phone calls lead to early evening dinner dates, and one by one the rules are all out the window. 
 
Ben was supposed to be Thomas’s first time, and Thomas was supposed to be Ben’s rebound…but what if the best way to get over someone is also the best way to fall in love?

Review by Twinsie Dee

I was given this book by the author for an honest review 

What better way to get over your ex-wife then sleeping with a man right? Well Thomas did that very thing he always had a curious side of him of what it would be like to be with a man, and after he finally got divorced from his wife who was actually cheating on him, he thought what better time than now he was alone in his new apartment he got on an app he had so hidden no one would find it. Ben was dealing with a narcissist boyfriend who just abused his body, mind and spirit, but a good romp in the sheets seemed to fix it for that moment. Well he finally had enough and finally ended it with him, Ben found himself on the same app, not looking for anything serious just a good lay from time to time. Well Ben and Thomas end up talking and next thing Thomas knew he was at Ben’s door for the first time and his first time being with a man. It was everything Thomas ever though it would be and he was glad he finally did it and Ben was just as impressed with Thomas’s performance even though he didn’t know it was his first time with a man. Will Thomas be able to keep his past in the past and just be able to hook up with Ben without catching feelings and same for Ben who was fine with a no strings attached hookup or will everything come out of the closet and go up in flames. Wow this story was so spicey and crazy but oh so good.  

With over two dozen published romances to her name, Kate Hawthorne has built a recognizable brand around telling emotional stories that pack a figurative (and sometimes literal) punch. 
 
Existing on a steady diet of wine and coffee, Kate spends her days dreaming up angsty stories full of heat, kink, and heart. Kate now lives in Louisville, where she writes romance, reads romance, and hides from the humidity.

Synopsis

They say the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else…

At least that’s what Ben is trying to convince himself is true. Ready to put his ex-boyfriend in the rear view for good, he connects with a handsome older man who’s only interested in something quick and casual. Their rules are simple—no strings, no feelings, and absolutely no kissing.

Thomas has never been with a man before, but in the midst of divorcing his estranged wife, he knows it’s something he is ready to act on. He’s wondered for years if his attraction to men is something real, so hooking up with an experienced and gorgeous younger man seems like a surefire way to find out. Better yet, it’ll kill two birds with one stone: exploring the depths of his midlife awakening and moving forward into a brand kind of new life.

One time together turns into two times, and two turns into something regular, but the rules still apply… until they don’t. Late night phone calls lead to early evening dinner dates, and one by one the rules are all out the window.

Ben was supposed to be Thomas’s first time, and Thomas was supposed to be Ben’s rebound…but what if the best way to get over someone is also the best way to fall in love?

Rebound is a 75,000 word romance with a midlife sexual awakening, plenty of firsts, unexpected feelings, and a steamy happy ending.

Excerpt

Ben’s cheeks burned. “There’s a difference between talking dirty and offering up a how-to guide.”

“Do I need a step-by-step?”Thomas looked up at him with an arched brow. His expression was decidedly smug, like he knew he was good in bed without instruction. That if Ben did offer him a little guidance…he could be great.

“No,”he conceded. “But it wouldn’t hurt for you to finesse your technique a little.”

“Finesse.”

Thomas looked at him in disbelief, taking a drink of his wine but not breaking away from Ben’s gaze. Ben, for his part, was enraptured. The Thomas sitting across from him was almost like a whole new version of himself. At least as far as Ben knew. To him, it seemed that giving Thomas the space to admit his sexuality had empowered him to speak freely about the things he wanted, the things he was good at. It wasn’t arrogance or cockiness. It was confidence. It was competence. It was fucking hot.

“There’s things that you can learn,”he said.

“Practice makes perfect.”

Was Ben imagining things, or had Thomas’s voice slipped down a register with that ask? Ben shifted his weight, thankful he’d put a shirt on, but regretful he hadn’t opted for pants. The underwear did little to hide the interested bulge between his legs.

“Is that what you’re looking for?” Ben asked. “Someone to practice on?”

“Practice with,” Thomas corrected.

“Casually.”

“Formally.”

Now it was Ben’s turn to arch a brow. That wasn’t anywhere close to what they’d talked about the first time.

“Not committed,” Thomas amended. “Well…”

“Exclusive,”he supplied. “But not serious.”

“Right.” Ben didn’t have enough wine in his glass—or the bottle—to have this conversation.

“I’ll go get tested,” Thomas said.

Ben swallowed, dragging his tongue across the front of his teeth. “Why?”

“What I said earlier still stands. I don’t like condoms.”

“You’re not the only person in this…this…formally exclusive casual arrangement.”

“Did you want to keep using them?” Thomas asked.

“I feel like this conversation has gotten away from me.” He topped off his wine and took a large swallow. “You were just coming out of the closet at me and now you’re talking about fucking me bare.”

“Well, when you say it like that…”

#NewRelease #MM #2ndChance #SingleParent – Two Tribes by Fearne Hill

Two Tribes by [Fearne Hill]

It’s 1995, and troubled seventeen-year-old Matt Leeson harbours three passions: indie music, wartime history, and the posh boy he sits next to in maths class. Not in that order. One of those passions is closely guarded, along with a few other secrets Matt tucks away. Such as his abusive father, the cramped run-down flat he calls home, and the futility of his dreams to escape both.

Twenty-five years later, and plodding Dr Alex Valentine, recently divorced, is looking back on a life less lived. On his failed marriage and the dull bore he’s become, on the empty, lonely weekends stretching ahead. And, in a corner of his mind, wondering what could have been, if only a slender, raven-haired young man hadn’t so abruptly vanished all those years ago.

First love. Teenage love. It should be nothing more than an opening chapter, right? A short prologue even, before the real test of adulthood begins.

But what if that chapter never closes?

Trigger warnings: written with a light touch but please be kind to yourselves and observe trigger warnings for: death of a secondary character, depression, domestic abuse (off page), self-harm (off page), attempted suicide (off page)

#NewRelease #MM #RH #Shifter – A Lick of Magic by Crea Reitan

A Lick of Magic (Satan's Touch Academy Book 1) by [Crea Reitan]

Sacred Tongue Academy. Or as the students call it, Satan’s Touch Academy.

Five best friends, a small coven of witches, embark on their culminating project for their graduate degree—to start and successfully run their own business. Their shop’s name? A Lick of Magic. And what are they selling? Why, only magically enhanced sex toys, of course.

E, Dev, Sin, Indie, and Crea have been thick as thieves since they met, and as the year starts with the launch of their shop, they expect it to go as any other. But it quickly becomes apparent this is not the smooth sailing final year they all planned as they’re sucked into the school’s hidden secret society. Especially when they meet a group of sexy as Hell men that they’re sure cannot be human. Not being human isn’t a big deal, of course – not in their world. But why are they pretending to be?

In a school known for its dark corners, growls in the dark, noises behind closed doors, and a death or two each year, the girls now have to add ‘staying off the radar of the society that’s proving to be anything than what it appears’ to their agendas.

Five book series. Each will be following one of the five witches as they create their magical sex toys and the hilarity that comes with it, struggle to run a successful business and still keep their grades up, and you know – survive the claws of the secret society. All while falling into steamy relationships that they had not planned on.

This is a polyamorous story with content not suitable for those under 18 years of age due to graphic content.

Goodreads

Crea lives in upstate New York with her dog and husband. She has been writing since grade school, when her second grade teacher had her class keep writing journals. She has a habit of creating secondary, and often time tertiary, characters that take over her stories. When she can’t fall asleep at night, she thinks up new scenes for her characters to act out. This, of course, is how most of her meant-to-be-thrown-away characters tend to end up front and center – and utterly swoon-worthy! Don’t ask her how many book boyfriends she has…

When not writing, Crea is an avid reader. Her TBR pile is several hundred books high (don’t even look at her kindle wish list or the unread books on her tablet). Sometimes, she enjoys crafting; sometimes, exploring nature; sometimes, traveling. Mostly, she enjoys putting her characters on paper and breathing life into them. Oh, and sleeping. Crea loves to sleep!

#Review #NewRelease – In Between – An MMF Romance (Love is Love Series) by Andi Jaxon

I’m the preacher’s daughter.

Dylan is the punk son of the bigoted sheriff.

Julian the new kid in town everyone talks about in whispers and avoids like the plague.

Dylan and Julian shouldn’t want each other.

It’s dangerous.

This town won’t accept them and yet I run towards the fire because love deserves a chance.

It’s not just them that’s in danger this time.

They both want me too.

I crave them and all they can offer me.

But I can’t have them.

It’s wrong. Perverted. Immoral. And I’m a good church girl.

At least, that’s what everyone thinks…

Can we hide who we are from a town who’s against us or will we be burned by their hatred?

*This is Mary’s story and can be read as a stand alone but will be best enjoyed after reading Bully King. This is an interracial MMF story and will have triggering language and situations due to racism and homophobia. If you would like a list of triggers in this book, please visit www.andijaxon.com/trigger-warnings

This book. Man this book. It felt like going home. I love this world and these characters so so much.

In Between is about Mary, Julian and Dylan. It’s an MMF story and man, once the sexy times start happening, they’re highly explosive.

Now for the review: We first meet Mary in Bully King. She’s Jonah’s sister – if you’ve read that book, yay! If not, grab it now! – She’s strong and fights for what she believes in. I wish I was half as strong as she was when I was her age. It would have made highschool so much easier. Anyway.

Julian is the new kid in town but isn’t taken well, based on the colour of his skin.

Dylan is a local bad boy, who says exactly what’s on his mind and uses sarcasm to mask his emotions, since he doesn’t know how to deal with them in the first place.

Attraction blossoms between the three of them. Things start getting hot and heavy first between the boys and then once Mary is involved, wowza.

But of course, things aren’t all flowers and puppies as time wears on.

Someone wants Mary. Apparently he thinks her good girl act is just that, an act. He’s dangerous and the boys try and do what they can to protect her but of course, they aren’t always around.

One thing leads to another and the boys have to rescue Mary before things get really bad. I won’t say exactly what happens but make sure to one-click this story to find out!

Add to the fact that both Julian and Dylan are dealing with their own personal issues. Man, it was heart breaking to read. Andi sure knows how to write grumpy boys. I thought Roman from Bully King was bad. He’s a kitten compared to Dylan in my personal opinion. Don’t tell him I said that.

If you love MMF type books, be sure to grab this one. It does deal with triggering situations. ex. racism, homophobia, etc.

Andi Jaxon writes these difficult subjects expetionally well. I’m in awe of her and her bravery to take on something that unfortunately still happens quite a lot on this world.

If I could keep these characters safe, I would. If you’re reading this, know that you are safe with me. Always.

#MM #BDSM #DaddyDom #AgeGap #teacherStudent – DISCIPLINARY ACTION by Onley James

LEOPOLD GIDEON spent his childhood as the poor kid in a rich school until he met an older man who took him under his wing and into his bed, teaching him to not only survive but thrive among the elite and to never submit to anybody…except him. For fifteen years, Gideon had everything, but then tragedy strikes, leaving him alone once again.

CALLUM WHYTE was raised with every conceivable luxury but one: loving parents. When his father is indicted for federal crimes and his assets frozen, Cal has to learn to survive with nothing. When a friend offers him money to spend the night with the hot older man they all call Daddy, Cal has no choice but to say yes or literally risk going without medication he needs to stay alive.

One night with Daddy Gideon leaves Cal’s head spinning and his body longing for something he never thought he’d want: discipline. Too bad Gideon never plays with the same boy twice, not even ones who beg as sweetly as Cal.

Just when Cal thinks all hope is lost, he discovers Gideon is the new headmaster for his school, leading him to devise a plan to get what he wants by blackmailing the older man into spending the next six weeks with him. But Cal is about to learn it doesn’t pay to blackmail someone who doles out his punishments.

Will this battle of wills end in a ceasefire or heartbreak?

This book contains BDSM, Daddy Dom, Age-Gap, Teacher/Student and Domestic Discipline and is complete at 70,000 words with no cliffhanger and a HEA.

#WOTR22 #TwinsieForTheDayJulia #WOTRMommaJulia #MM – Eli’s Little Easter: Holidays at Rawhide Ranch Book 7 by Dakota Trace

Eli's Little Easter : Holidays at Rawhide Ranch Book 7 by [Dakota  Trace , Rawhide  Authors, AllyCat’s  Creations]

The youngest son of the Atheron family, Elias has been a huge disappointment to his overbearing parents, particularly his mother. He’s done everything right, including relocating to another state to head up the office in the newest addition to the family party business, but it still never seems enough. She now wants him to come home for Easter, to reunite with an old flame, which he refuses to do. This Easter he has the chance to make Little Delights, his own party planning service for Littles, into the premier party planning service for the age-play community. Derek Hawkins has hired him to plan an Easter Jamboree for his Little girl and the rest of the Littles who call the Rawhide Ranch their home.

Willem William is the past the age of playing. As the financial adviser for the Rawhide Ranch, he spends his days studying spreadsheets, trends, and making suggestions to secure the future of the Hawkins family. Nearing his golden birthday, he assumes his dream of having his own Little is just that. Which is why he never expects the boy to walk into his life under the guise of an accident-prone party planner. But once he catches a glimpse of the Little boy Eli tries to hide, he’s smitten. Now all he has to do is convince Eli that what he needs is a good old-fashioned daddy for Easter.

Publisher Note: this is a slow burn where a determined Daddy meets the shy Little meant to be his. If age play, moonlight trips to the park and spanking/discipline are not your thing, please don’t buy this book.

Review by Momma Julia with permission from her daughter Madi.

Eli has a chance to break away from his family, and their Party Planning business, and his overbearing Mother. He’s moved to a new State, to start a new branch. Bit what he’s trying to do is start his own specifically tailored company focused on Littles. Eli is a Little, but it’s buried very deeply, t, someone in his past ruined it for him. Willem the company accountant has buried his Daddy side, he didn’t think at his age he’s find another Little of his own, until he met Eli. I loved how protective of Eli, Willem was. Together they found out, it’s never too late.

Hello, and welcome to my site. I’m Dakota, an author of erotic romance (think 50 Shades of Gray – but better) and paranormal erotica. And what exactly does that mean? Well, since I’ve always marched to the beat of different drum: it means that I get to take my unique life experiences – like putting around in the garage with my dad, or driving a train when I was ten, to create worlds where the heroines aren’t necessarily June Clever, but are strong independent women who may stand on their own two feet, but long to submit to the right man. Whether it’s two friends who realize there is more than friendship between them or the sexy alien who captures his unwilling slave’s heart, sparks fly between them. My imagination has no bounds or at least none I’ve found yet!

“Hey Frankie, we need ya.”

One phone call, five words, and I’m back in the town I swore I’d never return to.

Hill Crest Library smelled bad, and it wasn’t just the corpse in front of me causing it. The once beautiful building had fallen into disrepair over the past few years.

Belinda the new librarian was doing her best to clean it up, but a dead body wasn’t helping matters.

Dad needs help to solve the murder, so that’s what I’m here to do, then get out of town before anyone even knows I’m back

The case should be easy for an MBI agent, even a newly minted one like me, but before I can check into the hotel my three reasons for leaving, corner in the lobby.

My life just got a lot more complicated.

Homecoming Homicide is a Cozy style Slow Burn RH with an adorkable Heroine and Three not so normal Fellas thrown into the mix.

I was given this book by the author for an honest review

Life is good for MBI agent Frances Bishop, she’s an important member of the bureau. Then she got a phone call from her dad saying he needs her for a case back home, so she return home after she said she never to return. When the case gets crazy with a guys head basically exploded and magic lingering around but not able to pinpoint from where. Frances also has to worry about the 3 guys she ran from in the first place. This case goes from a normal mystery to the ultimate mystery. Sexual tension through the roof and 3 hot witches trying to keep their girl. Wow this book was amazing not gonna lie the title is what drew me in because I love a good mystery and homicide is right up my ally, I completely loved Frances and her fellas and I’m so ready for the next book.

Creeping It Real (Magical Bureau of Investigation 2) by Albany Walker 

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/58825480-creeping-it-real

https://amzn.to/3mNeP9A

Do dead men tell tales?

Before the ink is dry on my last case, I get pulled onto another, and away from what could be a new beginning with the guys.

The murder of a high-profile coven leader is being kept a secret, only his inner circle knows. Problem is, they just may be the reason he ended up with a femur through his heart. Add some necromancy into the mix and things are getting down right intriguing dangerous.

On top of the case, there’s also my very tricky love life that has a little too much in common with the dead man for my liking. I just hope our story doesn’t end with a bloody, broken heart like his did.

Bones are piling up, just like suspects. We need to solve this case before the death magic can target anyone else.

Creeping it Real is the second book in the Magical Bureau of Investigation series. This is a slow burn RH or whychoose novel with adult situations.

I was given this book by the author for an honest review

Wow one again Albany hits it outta the park. Frankie was sent on a case to figure out who killed a huge coven leader and then while she was there another similar scene in a cemetery and it just goes crazy from there. Once arriving at the hotel she calls her guys to let them know where she was, and that she didn’t know when she was going to be home due to the case. When they show up at the hotel Frankie can’t believe it but also she loves that they came to her. Percy once again is the best sidekick and the star of the book lol. But with the guys there and this case getting more and more crazy will Frankie be able to focus on what she needs to and get them all back home. Which when they get home and it don’t low down more drama is waiting for them right around the corner. This book is amazing I’m so ready for the third book Albany does an amazing job and I’m obsessed with her books.

This shell of a man, gripping onto who he is by his fingertips.
If anyone finds out who he really is, who he used to be, he’ll become another statistic.
Luckily I know how to hide my truth in the dark.
I should stay away from him, not get caught up in his family drama, but I crave him.
I need him.
Am I strong enough to fight for the man who needs me?
*Tainted is an mm transgender romance that deals with transphobia, homophobia, and past abuse. There will be parts of the story that contain triggers surrounding these issues. It is for an 18+ audience.
*This book follows Taylor’s journey after Bully King: An MM Bully Romance, it is a stand alone and does not have to be read in order.

When I found out that Andi was writing Taylor’s book, I was super excited. He had been through a lot in Bully King, so it just seemed fitting that he get his chance at his own happiness too. Well, poor guy had to work for that also.

This book…wow. After reading the prologue, I knew that it was going to hurt. I can’t imagine. I just can’t.

Dean is transgender and what he goes through, what he believes about himself, what his parents made him believe…it’s heartbreaking. All of it is heartbreaking. I just wanted to wrap my arms around him and keep him safe. He’s grumpy, hates life, is mean and holds people at arm’s length. He believes he’s unworthy of love even though that is so far from the truth. Braxton is his best friend and man, I love this character. I think we all need a Braxton in our lives.

When Taylor meets Dean for the first time, there’s an instant connection but of course Dean wants nothing to do with him. Why would Taylor want him, when no one else had? But I gotta give Taylor it. He’s persistent and patient. I knew I would love his character just from reading Bully King but I actually love him more than I thought I would.

Reading the way Taylor was with Dean, was awe inspiring. I wish more people could be like him. He’s a safe place and more people need that.

Andi did a really good job portraying Dean’s thoughts and feelings. My heart broke for him.

I am also super proud of Mikey, Dean’s brother. I won’t say why as I don’t want to give any spoilers but I ended up liking him near the end of the book.

It was so fun to see Roman and Jonah again. And I can’t believe I’m saying this but I think Tainted is my favourite of these books thus far.

I loved all of the side characters. Braxton is my favourite but Whitney is on a whole other level. I would love for these two to get books. But I believe Mary’s book is next? And if Andi is still going to do what she told me she’s going to do, I don’t think any of us are ready.

If I’m ever blessed with children, I want to be their safe space. I want them to know that they can come to me and tell me anything at all. I want them to know that whatever they identify as, I will support them. And if having kids isn’t in the cards for my husband and I, then I hope others know that they can come to me. No matter what. I am safe.
