#Review – Sinner’s Creed by @authorkimjones

SC Cover

First in a new series—welcome to the Sinner’s Creed Motorcycle Club, where hard bodies and hot leather are made for each other, and love gone wrong is the most irresistible of all…
 
“I was the demon-possessed monster and she was the innocent, naïve angel. But none of that matters. She asks, I give and right now, I’ll kill anyone who tries to stop me from giving this woman what she wants—me.”

Dirk lives in the shadows—performing hits, maintaining order, and upholding the no-holds-barred legacy of the Sinner’s Creed Motorcycle Club. A nomad with a restless spirit and a cold heart, the open road is his world. One of the few constants in his life: his desire for the one woman who has consumed his thoughts for years.

Saylor Samson grew up far from the harshness of Dirk’s world. But ever since she was seventeen she’s been drawn to this dark and mysterious man who always seemed to show up just when she needed him.

After years of fated encounters, he’s back. This time he’s taking her. This time she’s ready for the ride. But just when the darkness in Dirk’s life begins to fade, Saylor reveals a secret that puts them both to the ultimate test. Now, Dirk has to make a decision: submit to his destiny with the MC, or choose his own.

TWINSIE DEB’S REVIEW

Sinner’s Creed by Kim Jones
Dirk & Saylor
Innocence, Sexiness, Music, and Protectiveness
5 Mutha Effin’ Stars

This book is going on my TOP 10 list for 2016. It moved me in ways no other book has. It was a complete and utter drain on my emotional well being and I wouldn’t have it any other way! It was frightening yet amusing. It was happy yet gloomy. It made me jump out of my skin but then left goose bumps on my arms. So many mixed emotions and so much turmoil that I fear this book is not for the faint of heart. It is by far a dark and gritty read. I dare you to dive in! Warning: Have booze, smokes, and tissues!!

Saylor Samson is the epitome of innocence. She screams it and yet she defies it. She is my hero in every way. Faced with impossible odds, she stares down her demise and challenges it. She’s tough as nails, comical to a fault, and so damn cute it’s killing me. I especially adore the fact that she isn’t really frightened of Dirk (at least not after the initial meet) but welcomes him, accepts him, and has faith in him. A God fearing woman who isn’t afraid to take what she wants and pray for the rest! Love her!

Dirk Dixon – Sinner’s Creed nomad is all kinds of fucked up. He’s basically a hit man, although his purpose serves much more than that. He is now Saylor’s savior and mine too if you must know. He’s dangerous, he’s scandalous, and he’s sexy as hell! His hard exterior is penetrated only by one thing, and one thing only. Guess what? Yep, a beautiful blondie named Saylor. I find his surroundings comical at times, but as far as Dirk goes, I’m fairly certain his funny bone has been removed due to lack of use! You’re gonna crack the fuck up when you find out who is “first” was. Good one Kim!

The supporting character cast in this chaotic tale is somewhat big, but I really only want to talk about 3 people; Donnawayne and Jeffery, and Shady. Donnawayne and Jeffrey are Saylor’s two gay friends and the absolute best companions a girl could ever have. They take such good care of her, it’s amazing how people from all walks of life fit together so well. Now, Shady is just that…SHADY… He has exactly ONE friend and that’s Dirk. He’s always there even when you don’t really know it. He’s Dirk’s eyes and ears to things unknown! I see his book is next and I can’t wait to find out what twists and turns his life is going to take in Sinner’s Revenge.

To wrap this up and get my ass back to reading, I will say this.. Sinner’s Creed is so compelling that I could NOT put it down. The writing style of Kim Jones in this story was effortless to read. I was so drawn to Saylor and Dirk that their lives became my main concern. This is a dark, gritty romance, with tons of chaos and bedlam. It’s more emotional than you would think so get your tissues ready. The dialogue flows and sounds natural. The tension that Kim creates throughout the story leads you up to a climax that I will NEVER forget!

MM March Madness – MARCH 5 – Jenna Galicki

03-05 - Jenna Galicki

MM MARCH MADNESS!!

March 5

Twinsie Talk is proud to present the 3rd Annual MM March Madness – a month to focus on the M/M, F/F, M/M/F, M/F/M authors. We love these books and want to share it with the rest of the world. Each day we will post an interview. We will also include any reviews that we have done on these books as well as links to the books.

Our hope is that you will love this genre as much as we do! <3

Today is devoted to Jenna Galicki

author bio

Jenna Galicki writes in multiple genres including m/m/f, m/f, and m/m. She is predominantly known for her Radical Rock Stars Series. The Prince of Punk Rock (Radical Rock Stars Book 1) was a finalist in the 2015 Bisexual Book Awards.

Jenna is a strong advocate for LGBT rights and marriage equality. A native New Yorker, she recently relocated to Southern California with her husband and two dogs. She’s a Rottweiler enthusiast and an avid music buff. When she’s not hunched over a computer, you can find her front row at a rock concert.

Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.

I’m a huge animal lover. I’ve been a vegetarian since I was a teenager and stopped consuming all milk products about 5 years ago. I’m working my way to vegan.

There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?

I have written a rock star series, but it wasn’t my intention. The original story about Angel, Tommy and Jessi was a big one and halfway through writing it, I knew it needed to be 2 books. As it turned out, it needed to be 3 books. While writing the first book (The Prince of Punk Rock) I new right away that Damien had a backstory that needed to be told. I knew his past in my head and loved his story. It needed to be put on paper and shared. The other characters evolved and Jimmy’s story also needed to be told. It actually worked out very well in regard to the original story about Angel, Tommy and Jessi because their relationship needed time to progress and develop before they found balance.

Where do you do most of your writing?

I usually write in my home office with my 2 dogs at my feet, but I always take either my tablet with me in case the opportunity arises.

What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?

Caught! by JL Merrow (smart is the new sexy! 🙂 )

Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?

I think the m/m genre has exploded. I have no idea why, but I’m very happy about it. I want to see boy/boy on the shelf right next to boy/girl.

What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?

I’m surprised at the velocity of stories running around in my head! They take control of themselves and have their own path. I have my foot on the gas, but the characters are the ones driving.

What are you working on now?

The last novel in the Radical Rock Stars Series, Punk Rock-A-Bye Baby, was released on Jan 27. I have a m/m short in the Hearts Afire Anthology that was published on Feb. 14.

What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?

Go to a rock concert!

Tell us about the highest HIGH and lowest LOW in your career so far. How has it changed you?

The highest point had to from the Bisexual Book Awards. The Prince of Punk Rock was a finalist in the Romance Category. This was voted on by a panel at The Biwriters Association. They probably never heard of me or my books before they read The Prince of Punk Rock. It was an honor.

Low point? That’s a hard one to answer. This has been an incredible ride.

The Prince of  Punk Rock Review

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

So my blog is focusing on MM FF MMF MFM and all the mixes in the middle this month (March 2014). I saw the promo for this book and thought WOW and it even would fit with our theme so I reached out to the author for a copy. I sat and read this book in not time at all. I couldn’t put it down. These characters captured my heart and attnetion from the very first page.

Tommy is some kinda lucky man. He is married to Jessi. She knows he is bisexual and will do anything to make him happy. She allows him to bring men home and she watches and even participated with Tommy while the other male is playing with Tommy too…however no touching of Jessi is allowed….They have a happy marriage and the world is good. Tommy gets a message to meet this Angel guy for an opportunity in his up and coming band. Jesse and Tommy go and BOOM INSTANT chemistry. Angel and Tommy have this instant pull. Jessi even sees it and does some match making. I was thinking “man she is some kind of awesome to be OK with this and even encouraging it.” The three start to have a happy relationship but you see Jessi have cracks….she is begining to wonder if Angel will take Tommy away. Along the way of the story, there is great band news, unhappy family revilations and alot of sex….snickers…but you prolly figured that right??!!

Angel is VERY gay and even when Jessi is trying to seduce him, he will not budge. I have to admit I felt the sting of the rejection like Jessi did and was a little bit sad that Tommy never picked up on it. He is intune with this wife but sometimes I felt Angel was more intune with her and their love was platonic.

I was devistaed in the story when you find out about the secret that Tommy adn Angel kept from Jessi. I too was so hurt that this woman who sacraficed everything willingly for the man she loved would keep things from her. I was proud of her for standing by his and Angels side to take care of the drama nbut hurt like she was. I also was very happy with her postion at the end of the story. I am happy to see Jessi taking care of Jessi. I read the blurb for book 2 and I have to admit my heart is hurting at the drama that will be taking place in book 2…..omg i dont know if i cant take it……..

 
Between a Rock and a Hard Place Review
I received this book from the author for an honest opinion.
When I read the first book if the series I was just hooked! I mean a married couple with an openly bisexual husband who has a curious wife that opens her marriage to an openly gay man….and it works!!!
Well this part of the book really , really makes it hard for the threesome. Jessi can’t go on tour with Angel and Tommy. She has to stay behind and finish school. The time without Jessi was a little “honeymoon: for Angel and Tommy. However, Jessi gets very insecure of their relationship. Words between her and angel are not nice and Tommy is pulled between the two loves of his live. His wife means everything but his partner is just as important.
Well, Angel and Jessi find some common gournd and realize that they both are insecure when it comes to the other. Angel is afraid that if it doesnt work out, he is the one getting walking papers because Jessi is the LEGAL spouse of Tommy.
When that drama is worked out Jessi has new drama to work out with her new business. Tommy realizes that Jessi is his rock and roll heart and soul. If she will not be able to participate in the tours and travel, then he is done with the music industry. He has realized he is a bit of a slacker with both his loves and is going to step up his game to prove his loyalty and love to them both.
The next book, I am soooo excited to read. It is going to be a great story. I cannot wait for it either!!
Punk Rock-A-Bye Baby Review
I received this book from the author for an honest review.

AHHH!! This book!! I loved it so much!! I have been a big fan of the series and was super stoked to see that the trio would be having a baby. Jessi, Tommy and Angel have come full circle in this series. They have embraced their polyamorous lifestyle. They have also been able to put all jealousy to rest and been open to a full, loving relationship.

When Tommy decides to officially marry Angel, I was so excited. Too also see Jessi as on board made me happy. When the three officially become a family and they decide on adding a baby, I. WAS. STOKED!! Their honeymoon does end up causing some trouble for them in the future but the trauma also helps to reinforce their bonds. The ending chapters made my heart pitter patter but I can’t say why because I think it was the best part of the book. It made my heart soar!!! It was the unexpected Cream Cheese Frosting on my already perfect Red Velvet Cake Book!!!

I loved seeing the rest of the band and am hopeful that we may see another punk rock baby from Alyssa and or Audra???? Maybe? Perhaps? I would be down for reading about Damien and Alyssa because his is my FAVORITE of the guys!!

brendas review

I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I received this ARC about 3 weeks ago.  I was in the middle of a few other books so it sat on my kindle for about 2 weeks!  THEN I started it!   HOLY CRAP!  Why did I let it sit for so long?

I was sucked in from page one!  I believe I even cried on page 1 (or very close).  The story was so heart-wrenching, but I had to keep reading.  I recently started watching the new TV show, Quantico, about these FBI trainees.  I love this show….well this book is also about FBI agents and some trainees.  So when I started to read about the characters, I started picturing the characters from the TV show.  Well that soon changed because the description and characters from the book started to come to life.

The story is about Madison (Maddie) who is just getting her PhD and also joining the FBI.   She did not have a very good childhood, and is still living through that tragedy.  Her “father” is in prison, he’s a serial killer.  He escapes and is now after Maddie.

But Maddie has two HOT SEXY FBI agents (Scott and Liam) to watch over her.  Scott is the all-around good guy and Liam is the “bad-boy” of the FBI.  So you probably know who I was rooting for?!?  Yep, Liam.  I’m a sucker for a bad-boy.   I won’t tell you who she ends up with……

The story grabs you from the start and you read and read and read….then stop because you “need a minute” to gain control again.  I tell you, I couldn’t get out of this story after I finished.  It is still with me and I’ve been done for a week now.  You will be able to “see” this as a movie in your head.

I had several messages to Gen….laughing, crying, sobbing, and a few WTH did you just do to me!!!  Of course she loved that I cried….. they always do that!  Such torture!

So GOOO!!  One-Click now!!  It’s SOOO worth it!!  I cannot wait for more from Gen Ryan.

I lifted my arm to remove my shirt, and my face contorted in pain. I was so incredibly sore. Each muscle in my body stretched and ached. Scott moved in front of me and put his hands at the seam of my shirt. His fingers lightly brushed against my bruised skin. I didn’t feel the pain, though—just the sensual coolness of his touch. The unexpected pleasure masked the pain that had overtaken my body. I melted into his hands. He removed my shirt with such care I didn’t feel a single muscle strain. I lifted my head and our eyes connected.

His blazing eyes were full of sex and comfort, and I wanted what they offered. As he touched my cheek, my body curled in to him.

“You almost said you loved me.” His eyes were lustful as they wandered down the length of my body. They stopped at my center as he licked his lips in anticipation. I clenched my thighs together for fear that the wetness that had formed there would seep through. I felt vulnerable. Exposed. I also felt amazing. No barriers were between us, no walls that needed to be torn down—just pure unadulterated love.

You can find Genevieve curled up reading paranormal romance and romantic thrillers, or frantically typing her stories on her laptop.

Psychology is her trade by day, teaching and molding the minds of college students. Her interest in psychology can be seen in her books, each including many psychological undertones. Although she loves teaching,  her passion, her true love, lays in the stories that roam around her in head. Yes, they all come from her mind–the good, the bad, and the totally insane. 

She lives in Massachusetts–no not Boston-with her husband, daughter, and American Eskimo dog. With each story she shares, she hopes her love for writing and storytelling seeps through, encompassing the reader and leaving them wanting more.

author bio

I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, My character have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love.

I live in New York City with my husband and two children and hopefully soon a cat of my own. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. I practice law but daydream of a time when I can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there is bound to be angst along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.

Please come follow me on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/felice.steve…
and my author page at: https://www.facebook.com/felicesteven….
There is a wonderful group of dedicated readers who call themselves Felice’s Fierce Fans who’d love for you to join them and talk about Rescued, and find out about other books I have in progress

Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.

I am a reality show junkie!! I love the Real Housewives shows, as well as Say Yes to the Dress, as well as true crime shows like Forensic files and Snapped

There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?

Most of my books are series. When I was strictly a reader I loved series because I fell in love with the characters and didn’t want to say good bye to them.
They are harder because of the timeline. I’m terrible keeping track of years passing, and thank God my editor knows to watch out.

Where do you do most of your writing?

On my sofa.  LOL I work full time so I get up early and write late when I come home from work.

What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?

I just finished Red River, a shifter MM book by one of a favorite author, Cardeno C.  Anything Cardeno writes, I read. I also love Josh Lanyon Riley Hart and recently became hooked on the Infected series by Andrea Speed. Jordan Hawk’s Whyborne and Griffin series is also a favorite.

Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?

I do! And I’m thrilled. I think that people are becoming more adventurous and willing to try other types of Romance they might not have been willing to try in the past. But i don’t lump MM Romance in with pure Erotic Romance or Erotica. I think once people read the stories they see the love that grows between the men and that there isn’t any good reason to hide it. Love is beautiful no matter the gender.

What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?

Writing is HARD!! And Good writing is even harder! LOL. There is so much to learn about the craft; it’s never ending.

What are you working on now?

I have a book releasing on January 28th and a Valentine’s novella coming out, of course, on Valentine’s Day. I am planning to add to a short story that was published in an anthology last year and make it a novella. And I am working on a full length book about a man who’s never come out of the closet who falls for the radio psychologist he called one night on a dare.

What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?

I’m such a homebody! I love curling up on on my sofa with my glass of wine, some cheese and watch television.

Tell us about the highest HIGH and lowest LOW in your career so far. How has it changed you?

The highest high was getting the email from Loose Id that they had accepted Rescued, my first published book, for publication.
My lowest low was reading very mean spirited reviews of my books. I don’t do that any more.

Melinda's Review

I received a copy of the book from the author for an honest review.

I was thrilled when I found out we were getting more of Tremaine’s story. Yes, we did get some of his story in Falling into Place but mainly from the time he saved Liz and took her to Robert’s family on. This takes us back to his dark years before he saved Liz.

Robert’s new case has him dealing with HARP and while researching them he uncovers part of Tremaine’s dark past. Needing time to processes all he has uncovered he pulls away from Trem and Liz. Trem does what he can to help with Robert’s case and to ease his mind but with every new thing uncovered threatens to suck Trem back to the darkness. Can Liz and the bond these three have stick through this or will everything they have be lost?

To see Liz Tremaine and Robert living, loving, and growing into a family was so thrilling for me to see. Then to be able to see more of Preston was not a bad thing either. If you don’t know I kinda have a thing for Preston and love it when he shows up time to time. The plot, twists and turns were phenomenal. Some of them I never even seen coming and those were the best. The ending was the best and I even had a few tears in my eyes.

I am ready for the next book. There are so many great side characters I want to get to know better and there are so many things going on in the lives of the other characters I need to know who they are all doing too.

Here are a couple of my favorite lines:

“You’re the one who always picks me up. What did I ever do to deserve you?” “Before you, I was lost, looking for a purpose. You, Liz, were the one who pulled me back from the brink.” “Brink of what?” “Darkness” “You’ve never been dark.” “No, but I was entangled in plots so thick, I wasn’t sure who I served. Trapped in a web, I almost didn’t escape. I could have fallen. Nearly did. I’d gone so deep in a case, my whole perspective had become warped and twisted. If I hadn’t found you, I wouldn’t have pulled myself out of that pit.”

“You know better. I love you. You’re a piece of my soul. I can’t have you thinking I’m that scum.” He closed the distance, looking into Robert’s eyes with intensity, desire washing through him. Robert gripped the back of his neck and pulled him in for a bruising kiss. Then he hissed into Tremaine’s ear. “I love you too.”

– EXCERPT –

Tremaine burst through the door, slamming it shut. He fused the knob and trapped the sound with the same spell. When he turned toward Robert, the rage on his face sent a thrill of fear down Robert’s spine.

“You happy with yourself?”

Robert stood, meeting his glare. “What on earth are you talking about?”

He growled. “You scared the fuck out of Liz by not coming home and sending that cowardly text. Why? Because you’re pissed about my past? I gave you those files thinking you could see the bigger fucking picture. Now you want to accuse me of what? Treason against the Council? Draecyn’s the bastard who sent me on the goddamned case to begin with.”

Robert drew in a slow breath, trying to gather his words. He’d never seen Tremaine this angry before. Generally, he was levelheaded through the worst of times.

“Nothing?” Tremaine spat. When Robert didn’t answer, he snarled, “Really think I could do all that?”

Robert stepped around the desk, anger flickering to life. “You tell me, Tremaine. What am I supposed to think? You handed me stacks of files without warning me what was in there. Of course, I’m going to question every single thing.”

Tremaine shook his head in slow motion, his brown eyes fading to gold, flashing with light. “You question what side I was on, then fucking question me like a man. Don’t hide away from Liz. You didn’t see the look on her face when she asked me if you got tired of her and wanted to give up.”

“I’ll never give up on her.” An array of emotions splintered through Robert as he took a step closer, narrowing his eyes. “Yes, I made one bad decision. I gave her what I thought she wanted nearly twenty-two years ago. Never again.”

“Then why didn’t you come home?” Tremaine demanded.

He growled in frustration. “I was so twisted up trying to make sense of everything I read and couldn’t come home to see you wrapped around her, which I knew you had to be.”

“Do you think I wanted to go so deep into HARP? Think I wanted to do all that shit? Tell me something, Robert, why do you think Draecyn sent me? No one else could get into HARP’s ranks. Draecyn knew I was the only one with any kind of chance of getting intel because he was the only one who knew who my real father was.”

Robert’s heart sank. And they were right back to what he had finally realized a second before Tremaine barged in. “Because you’re half druid?”

Tremaine’s hands trembled a moment before they fisted. He stepped closer until he was an inch from Robert’s face. “Exactly. I didn’t choose the assignment. It was chosen for me. And yeah, they expelled me… technically, but I kept Draecyn in the loop. Did you skip his files?”

“You could have warned me what was really in there.”

“So you could question if I was just saying that to keep you in our bed? No. Thank. You. I gave you every last shred of the files so you could see what happened and draw your own conclusions. Apparently, that was the wrong fucking move.”

Robert’s jaw clenched. “Last night, after reading the final files, my head was swimming with a million details I didn’t understand. This morning they clicked into place, forming the bigger picture. I needed time to process.”

“Next time, man up and call me. Tell me to fucking leave so you can go to Liz and not break her to pieces when she starts wondering if you really love her.”

“Of course, I love her. I’ve always loved her. I didn’t want to fight in front of her when I was so lost in the details I couldn’t see the truth. Now back off.”

Tremaine inched closer, his eyes lasered on Robert’s. “You want to lose Liz?”

Robert shook his head.

“Me? I’d understand that. Is it too much now? If so, it’s too damned late to get rid of me. I’ve always loved Liz, and I love you, but right now you disgust me. I’ve never done a damned thing to make you doubt me like this.”

Robert attempted to shove him away, but Tremaine didn’t move. Frustrated, he hissed, “Had you waited ten more minutes, I would have been past the doubt. I needed time, Trem.” He reached for his phone to call Liz.

Tremaine caught it and threw it across the room. “Fuck that. Stop and talk to me! Tell me what I have to do to convince you I’m not part of HARP?”

“I know you’re not. There’s still a million questions on the tip of my tongue, but I get it.”

“Promise you won’t do that to Liz again,” Tremaine insisted.

“I swear it, and I’m sorry.” He met Tremaine’s golden stare. “Do you hate me now?”

“You know better. I love you. You’re a piece of my soul. I can’t have you thinking I’m that scum.” He closed the distance, looking into Robert’s eyes with deep intensity.

Desire washed through Robert. He gripped the back of Tremaine’s neck and pulled him in for a bruising kiss. Then he hissed into Tremaine’s ear. “I love you too.”

“Prove it,” Tremaine growled, reaching behind Robert to shove everything off the desk. Files fell to the floor, books, journals, everything, even the phone.

Their mouths collided, tongue’s dueling, teeth gnashing. Robert stood, and Tremaine pushed his jacket off, then gripped Robert’s shirt, ripping it open. Buttons flew across the room.

Melinda's Review

I received a copy of this book from the author for an honest review.

This is one of my favorite series and my favorite couple. I was so excited to hear I was going to get more Fallon and Brody. Fallon never disappoints me and Brody well he is Brody. Oh and we also get a little more Tremaine in this little package of awesomeness. Really how can you go wrong?

Fallon with the help of Tremaine is dealing with a situation with the twins she is carrying and doesn’t want to worry Brody. Brody can since something is up with Fallon but doesn’t know what. All it takes is for these two to be able to put their fears aside and communicate with one another. Instead they keep problems to themselves and bring tension into their lives.

I loved the twist and turns, finding out more about the babies and learning more about Fallon’s past. I enjoyed seeing the friendship between Fallon and Tremaine. To see Fallon and Brody love for one another was amazing. I cannot wait for more of this series and to find out more about these twins.

MM March Madness – MARCH 3 – Daryl Banner

03-03 - Daryl Banner

MM MARCH MADNESS!!

March 3

Twinsie Talk is proud to present the 3rd Annual MM March Madness – a month to focus on the M/M, F/F, M/M/F, M/F/M authors. We love these books and want to share it with the rest of the world. Each day we will post an interview. We will also include any reviews that we have done on these books as well as links to the books.

Our hope is that you will love this genre as much as we do! <3

Today is devoted to Daryl Banner

author bio

Daryl Banner is an author and composer who graduated from the University of Houston with a degree in Theatre and Psychology.

He does not write in any single genre, as his stories tend to span several. He is most inspired by the smart and unlikely hero, but urges you (the reader) not to fall in love with them; they may deceive you with their innocence. He is thrilled by putting his characters in terrible situations where they must face choices and challenges that seem impossible to overcome.

Daryl Banner writes science fiction / urban fantasy, M/M romance, and post-apocalyptic fantasy. He cannot wait to hear what you think about his stories and welcomes (and responds to!) all feedback.

Interesting tidbits: Daryl is also an obsessive piano player, video game enthusiast, and occasional actor. He’s been remixing video game music for over fifteen years, and is a passionate Final Fantasy fan. You can feed your ears with many of his remixes (as well as his original music) on his YouTube page:
http://www.youtube.com/DarylBanner

He also composes original soundtracks that accompany some of his books. You can listen to and download them here:
http://darylbanner.bandcamp.com

Tell us about something about you (not included in your normal author bio) that maybe not everyone knows about you.

When I need an escape from my own writing, or just need inspiration, I don’t really read others’ work. Instead, I escape by playing video games, composing music, and programming. I know, super nerdy, but video games transport me to a totally different world and fill me with joy. Composing is like speaking a different language I’m fluent in; I sit at my piano and just play for hours, or sit at my computer and synthesize music from scratch. Programming works the math part of my brain and excites me the way that fitting a puzzle together gives you a thrill. It’s also sorta mental exercise, which helps me think more clearly when I sit back down to write.

There’s been a trend in writing a series. How do you feel about series? Do you write them? Do you think they are easier or harder?

Most of my books are all series. The Brazen Boys were an easy series to write because they were all standalone, so each book could stand on its own sexy feet. My fantasy/sci-fi series – The Beautiful Dead, and OUTLIER – are both thrilling for me to write, because building a world where the reader can live in it and experience thrill and love and loss is a strength and joy of mine, and I like to take them on a memorable, impacting journey that makes it all worthwhile.

Where do you do most of your writing?

Honestly, my room. I have a lot of cool lamps that I light up at night, and I swallow myself up in my favorite video game soundtrack of the day and just go to town writing. I have a little workspace set up in my garage when I need a different location, as well as a laptop that I’ll curl up with on the couch.

What are you currently reading? Any suggestions for your favorite books (beside your own, of course)?

Like I said in a previous answer, my escape from writing is usually in playing video games, composing, or programming. But I will say the latest bunch of books I’ve read were a few Chuck Palahniuk books (I recommend Damned if you have a strong stomach, but not its sequel Doomed) as well as the Song of Ice and Fire series (i.e. the series that Game of Thrones is based on). Most of the only work I read lately is my own when I’m editing, or some fellow author friends of mine whose work I also format and edit.

Do you feel that this genre is growing? And what do you contribute to that growth or decline?

The M/M genre is definitely growing, though I can’t say in which way. I’d like to say I contribute a very unique perspective to the genre, being a gay man myself — and a somewhat unconventional gay man, at that. My gay romances don’t tend to be sweet and love-centered (though some are), but rather more true to my own desires, centered around male-bonding, buddy-buddy intimacy, and what I like to tongue-in-cheek refer to as “bromances”. They may not be as sex-centered as others, but they are quite sexually charged in essence. I write in more of a 90% foreplay 10% actual sex, because seriously, I find that a zillion times more exciting than just tearing off clothes and getting to the point. It isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but I feel it so necessary to provide my own voice to the M/M genre in hopes that others who are like me may realize they’re not as alone as they think.

What is the most surprising thing you have learned about writing?

Despite your urge to write something that “pleases the masses”, you’ll always have a stronger personal (and reader) payoff when you write something you’re truly inspired by. Yes, maybe you won’t sell as many books, and maybe you’ll also invite people who don’t understand you or who want more sex or who will criticize your point of view, but you’ll know you did your story justice, and oddly (and yet unsurprisingly), that matters the most in the end as an artist. This is our craft, and it’s our duty to respect it and honor it the best we can, and to never stop learning.

What are you working on now?

At this moment, I’m working on a Beautiful Dead novella, which had a prologue released with the Beautiful Dead Box Set – which includes all 3 full length novels in the series ( http://www.amzn.com/B018TDAZJ0/?tag=darybann-20 ) Though it is not M/M in nature, fans of my M/M Brazen Boys series have responded very positively to it.

I’m also developing/planning the third book in my OUTLIER series, which features a M/M relationship among two of its POV characters. It’s a sci-fi / dystopian series set in the last city on Earth where everyone is born with a unique, special ability. It features M/M and M/F relationships; be forewarned, it does have violence and sexuality, and is an “epic-style” read (meaning it’s long and has many side-stories) and portions of the stories end in cliffhangers. These are not books you will easily forget.
Book 1 – http://www.amzn.com/B00M1XUK7W/?tag=darybann-20
Book 2 – http://www.amzn.com/B0172A5OHE/?tag=darybann-20

What is your favorite thing to do on a Saturday night?

I’m so lame. If I’m not writing, I love to grab myself a tasty snack, watch some Saturday Night Live, drink something fruity (or even an iced root beer will do), and then play video games into the dead of night until my eyes go crossed. Wanna join me?

Tell us about the highest HIGH and lowest LOW in your career so far. How has it changed you?

I’ve come to learn that no matter when I’m at my highest or lowest, I’m a natural born worrier. I’m constantly cautious and always have my eyes peeled like some survivalist in the woods of the author world. I don’t ever want to feel too accomplished, even when one of my books hits the top of a category or is received with tons of praise. I always strive to tell a better story, to figure out new ways to excite and surprise my readers, and to grow as a tinkerer of words. I owe it to my readers to never give up on them and to keep the stories fresh and new and shocking. Without them, I’d be nowhere.

Dorm Games

Ok soooo I bought this book because of a couple reasons…1. My blog is focusing on MM books this month. 2. OMG the cover 3. OMG the hawtness of the synopsis and lastly 4. the price…I mean come on 99C for a novella of yummy…yes please!!

I sat down and read this book in about an hour so if you are just needing a quick, hot read then this is it for you. Essentially Michael is in stalker love with Andrew in his Psych class. He even goes as far as to literally follow him around campus one day. The Gods were on his side and he and Andrew had to partner up for a project.

Andrew is Mr. In-Control. He is Mr. Top foooor sure. We, along with Michael, are not even sure of Andrews sexuality and then he makes up “games” for the two of them to play which essentially get them naked. YUMMMMY!!! Andrew is a very focused man and will leave Michael high and dry if he doesnt follow Andrews rules…again super hawt!!

This is a really short book but I enjoyed the relationship that the two men build. I really loved the ending. I dont want to add alot to the review becasue it is a novella but trust me…hawtness and yummy MM loving. I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

Jen's review

This was very enjoying light read for me. My Twinsie sis, Angie, suggested that I give it a read. Well it was a great recommendation. I usually don’t spend a lot of time reading novellas mainly because I’m pretty greedy and almost always want more…LOL. This was my first Daryl Banner book and I loved his writing. I thought the story flowed well and I loved the entire concept of the plot.

Essentially this book is about two college men using games to explore who they are. Michael is comfortable with himself as being gay but has never really experienced a relationship much less much sex. Andrew is the hot hot guy that Michael can’t seem to not stalk and want. A project in a class has these two guys working together and from there the game begins. Andrew likes to be in control and Michael is just the perfect man to help him learn that although he may need rules and discipline in order to feel in control of himself sometime you can be “played” playing your own games.

This story is very seductive and although it is short it most definitely will have you totally engaged in the first chapter. I loved the erotic teasing sex scenes that were sizzling hot. I also loved the dynamics between Michael and Andrew. They are both just looking for more and the journey to discovering it was a great ride. I hope we get to find out more about these two charismatic men. If you enjoy a short steamy read then go check this one out it is most definitely worth it.

On The Edge Review

angies review

I received a copy from the author for a review.

OHMYGERD!!! This book is sooo freaking funny and sooo hawt. Its like melt your panties hawt ladies!! But I laughed a few times in the begining because seriously we have all been Derek a time or two in our life.

So this book is about lonley birthday boy Derek. He is throwing a pity party for himself wth multiple bottles of wine. He sees Edge on the web site he frequents. He begins to type and laugh about all the stuff he would never really say to anyone EVER and then…click…he sends it!! Edge reads it , laughs and then BOOM COMES OVER!!

Now before Edge gets to Dereks house Derek (remember drunk) has…well…..uhm…..handcuffed himself and is suck!! LOL When Edge appears, he and Derek begin to flirt and the chemistry is INSANE!! OMG. Edge gets his name because he keeps his “clients” on the Edge of “fun times”.

The night is quick but the life changes that happen between the two men were awesome. I really would love to read more from Edge and Derek. I wanna know what happened AFTER their night of fun.
