#Review #UglyCry #TopFav Full Tilt by: Emma Scott

I would love you forever, if I only had the chance…

Kacey Dawson has always lived life on the edge–impulsively, sometimes recklessly. And now, as lead guitarist for a hot up-and-coming band, she is poised at the brink of fame and fortune. But she is torn between wanting to be a serious musician, and the demons that lure her down the glittering, but alcohol-soaked path of rock stardom. A wrecked concert in Las Vegas threatens to ruin her career entirely. She wakes up with the hangover from hell and no memory of the night before, or how she ended up on her limo driver’s couch…

Jonah Fletcher is running out of time. He knows his situation is hopeless, and he’s vowed to make the most of the handful of months he has left to him. His plans include seeing the opening of his glass installation at a prestigious art gallery…they do not include falling in love with a wild, tempestuous rock musician who wound up passed out on his couch.

Jonah sees that Kacey is on a path to self-destruction. He lets her crash with him for a few days to dry out and get her head on straight. But neither of them expected the deep connection they felt, or how that connection could grow so fast from friendship into something more. Something deep and pure and life-changing…something as fragile as glass, that they both know will shatter in the end no matter how hard they try to hold on to it.

Full Tilt is a story about what it means to love with your whole heart, to sacrifice, to experience terrible grief and soaring joy. To live life with all its beauty, and all its pain, and in the end to be able to smile through tears and know you wouldn’t have changed a thing.

Review by Tenise

My heart hurts. It has been quite a while since I’ve read a book this thought provoking. Soul crushing. All consuming. No review I write can do this beautifully written masterpiece justice. Masterpiece. That’s definitely not a word I throw around. Full Tilt definitely earned its spot in that category in my book.

This story is about doing what’s right for you and not worrying about what others think. Living life to its fullest. And finding love when you definitely weren’t looking, even if that deviates from the plan.

Jonah was THE PERFECT Hero. I loved him from the first page. He is one of those characters I will NEVER forget. His time is limited but he is making the most of it. He has his routines and does not stray from them. That is, until he crosses paths with a beautiful guitarist from an all girls rock band.

Kasey was lost and troubled. She needed to find her way in life. She was a hot mess and longed for, I guess you could say, a normal life. Never could she have known how much her life would change after waking up one morning on a strangers couch.

I will say no more. Full Tilt is one of those books that you need to experience for yourself and I would hate to ruin that experience for anyone. I’m throwing the usual rating system out the window and giving this book 5 stars times 2! If you haven’t read this one yet, I HIGHLY recommend it. Just make sure you have plenty of tissues handy.

Emma Scott is a USA Today and Wall St. Journal bestselling author whose books have been translated in five languages and featured in Buzzfeed, Huffington Post, New York Daily News and USA Today’s Happy Ever After. She writes emotional, character-driven romances in which art and love intertwine to heal, and in which love always wins. If you enjoy emotionally-charged stories that rip your heart out and put it back together again, with diverse characters and kind-hearted heroes, you will enjoy her novels.

#NewRelease #WotR20 #Review #SecondChanceRomance #SmallTownRomance One Last Time by: Heather D’Agostino


I fell in love at seventeen with a girl I thought would someday be my forever. We made plans, only hers didn’t include me. I didn’t think walking away from us would be so easy for her, but it was.

Now she’s back. The problem… I’m still in love with her, and I’m going to prove that we were meant to be if it’s the last thing I do.

Review by Tenise

I recieved an ARC of this book and this is my honest review.

4 STARS!

Micah and Savannah were high school sweethearts. Micah wanted to eventually spend forever with her but Savannah had other plans. Plans that didnt include Micah and this broke his heart.

Fast forward 5 years and Savannah has returned to town. Micah was never able to forget his first love. No matter how hard he tried, he never stopped loving her. But how does she feel about him? And why is she back in town after all this time?

This was a cute book about love and second chances. I just adored Micha. Savannah? I liked her, too. Although sometimes she really got on my nerves. Haha! I binge read this book and and will definitely miss all of the characters. It was a fun read.

#Review #NewRelease #Wotr5YearFamily #MMRomance #AgeGap #OppositesAttract #PartOfASeries— Hearts Afire by: A.d. Ellis


Ty Golden and Vic Black are done with dating, determined to take control of their own lives, and completely unprepared when love finds them.

With an independent, makeup-wearing, younger twink and a mature, protective, cardigan-wearing man, Hearts Afire is a steamy, slow-burn, age-gap, gay romance.

*This is the second book in the Forged in the City series.*

Review by Tenise

I recieved this book from the author. This is my honest review.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️4 STARS⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Ty Golden: Twenty-something male, works 3 jobs, enjoys wearing a little makeup, not looking for a relationship after a bad one left him scarred.

Vic Black: Forty-something male, very rich, wears cardigans and loves to crochet, not looking for a relationship- EVER- after his last boyfriend did him very wrong.

Ty and Vic’s paths keep crossing. I’m not sure they could avoid each other if they tried. The two of them worked so hard to deny their connection, but when they finally let go and accepted this mutual attraction, things between them were OH SO VERY HOT!

I loved Ty and Vic. Vic is definitely my favorite A.d Ellis character at the moment. I say at the moment because she always manages to change my mind with her next release so I try my best not to get too attached. Haha! Believe me, its easier said than done.

A.D. Ellis is an Indiana girl, born and raised. She spends much of her time in central Indiana as an instructional coach/teacher in the inner city of Indianapolis, being a mom to two amazing school-aged children, and wondering how she and her husband of nearly two decades haven’t driven each other insane yet. A lot of her time is also devoted to phone call avoidance and her hatred of cooking.
She loves chocolate, wine, pizza, and naps along with reading and writing romance. These loves don’t leave much time for housework, much to the chagrin of her husband. Who would pick cleaning the house over a nap or a good book? She uses any extra time to increase her fluency in sarcasm.
A.D. uses she/her or they/them pronouns.

#Review #Spinoff #FriendsToLovers #TNGS — Control Us by: JM Walker


Zach

She was innocent.
Passionate.
Fierce.
After Luna Stone and I went from friends to lovers, my only purpose was showing her how worthy I was. But how could I convince her when I didn’t believe it myself?
I craved her touch and her smiles but most of all, her heart.
I vowed to protect her and show her father that I could be the man for his daughter.
I pushed.
She pulled.
And when all was said and done, I’d have to go through an even higher power to prove that I deserved her…
Myself.

~

Luna

He was quiet.
Withdrawn.
Intense.
Zach Porter and I had been friends since we were kids, but it had never amounted to anything more than that. Until now.
But as close as we were getting, he was still closed off.
He protected his heart and put up walls, even though he had no reason to.
He shoved.
I grabbed hold and never let go.
If I didn’t fight for what was ours, he’d succumb to his demons and believe their vicious words telling him that he’s not good enough. To give up.
On us.

5 STARS! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I recieved a copy of Control Us from the author. This is my honest review.

This is the first book in The Next Generation Series. If you haven’t read their parents books, don’t worry, you will still be able to understand what is going on in this book. Although, I do HIGHLY recommend going back and reading them later. They are great books! Every book I have read by this author has been fantastic!

Zach and Luna have been friends since forever, but both of them feel like they want to be more. However, there are things in the way of their union; a couple of the biggest obstacles include, Luna’s dad and Zach’s demons.

When these 2 connect, there is oh SO MUCH hotness. I felt like I needed a cold shower after some scenes. I was rooting for these two from the beginning. I wanted them to get the happily ever after I felt like they both deserved. The question is- were they able to get past everything that was standing in their way? I adored this book and everyone in it- I am looking forward to the next book in this series.

5⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately, nothing was grabbing and keeping my attention. I went waaaay back in my TBR and found this gem. 4 years it sat there waiting to be read, I can’t believe I had such an amazing book in my possession and didn’t even realize it.

Laura and Seth’s story starts all the way back in 1997. Back when people carried around pagers and had landline telephones. The book spans 15+ years and tells a story of first love, happiness, heartache, and oh so much more. I laughed with them, cried with them, and also reminisced about mine and my wife’s story that is so similar to that of Laura and Seth’s that it was almost eerie. I loved every word on every page. It’s going to be hard to move on from Room 212, but it was totally worth the book hangover it gave me.

USA Today bestselling author and Texas native, Kate Stewart, lives in North Carolina with her husband, Nick, and her naughty beagle, Sadie. She pens messy, sexy, angst-filled contemporary romance, as well as romantic comedy and erotic suspense. Kate’s title, Drive, was named one of the best romances of 2017 by The New York Daily News and Huffington Post. Drive was also a finalist in the Goodreads Choice awards for best contemporary romance of 2017. Her works have been featured in USA TODAY, BuzzFeed, and translated in five languages.

Kate is a lover of all things ’80s and ’90s, especially John Hughes films and rap. She dabbles a little in photography, can knit a simple stitch scarf for necessity, and on occasion, does very well at whiskey.

#ReleaseDay #Review #RomanticSuspense #BookOneOfThree #Cliffhanger — Genesis (Bones, Book 1) by: Paige P Horne

With the smell of moonshine still drifting in the air, me and Johnny turn around to watch the house and the man inside burn up.

A noise from behind causes us to look back, revealing a girl with hot pink socks, black boots and wide, curious eyes.

She wasn’t supposed to be there.
She wasn’t supposed to witness what me and Johnny did that day.

The truth is, I fell for Bexley Walker the moment she promised she’d never tell.

But our time together was short lived for I am who I’ve always been. A man on the wrong side of the law. I thought I could change for her, but we can’t outrun the truth that lies within us.

I am my father’s son. Born to be a criminal.
Now, because of me, we’re both in danger. Held against our will. Tied and locked in a room together, we are forced to relive the love we once shared.

Review by Tenise

5 STARS! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I received a copy of this book from the author. This is my honest review.

FINALLY! I have been wanting to know more about Bones since before I even knew Bones was going to get a chance to tell his own story.
We first met Bones in the Give Me Love trilogy. From the moment this bad boy was introduced, I was very intrigued and wanted MORE! And I definitely got more.

Genesis starts way back before Bones was called Bones. Back when he went by his birth name, Danny O’Brien. The book switched back and forth between present and future. Filling in the holes and answering questions about how Danny and Bexley met, their relationship throughout the years, and how they got to where they are today.

THEN. The book just ended. I wanted to SCREAM! It was over and I have more questions. I need more answers. I am happy to wait to get them, though. I can already tell, Bones and Bexley’s story is one I just want to keep reading.

I LOVE paige P Horne, her books are automatic one-clicks for me. I don’t care what the books are about, I go in blind, I read her words and I ALWAYS love her words. I’m just counting down the days until I can get my hands on Insurgent (Bones, Book 2) I’m positive I will love it!

4 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Asher and Harper have known each other for many years. What started out as a penpal friendship, turned into something more. That is, until Harper suddenly cuts off all communication, leaving Asher heartbroken and confused. Fast forward 5 years, and their paths cross again. Can things ever go back to the way they were before? Or were these 2 never really meant to be?

Cindy is a new to me author, this is her debut novel. I won a copy of the book from the author and had the book on my TBR, but once I heard a rave review from a friend, I moved it to the top of my reading list. I’m so glad I did! When You Were Mine was my first read of 2020. It definitely set the bar high for all other reads this year.

Growing up an only child in rural Indiana Cindy grew to rely on her imagination for entertainment. Starting at a young age she would read books to her animals and started telling her stories to anyone that would listen. Over the years her love of reading and telling stories grew into a career of her dreams. She likes to write sincere stories with unexpected twists.

When Spice asks Silver to fake a relationship with him, Silver agrees. He knows pretending to be involved with the older man will likely come back to bite him in the ass, but if the farce will help Spice and his young son, Silver is totally on board.
All too soon, the consequences of the fake relationship weigh on both Silver and Spice. Will a meddling grandmother, an adorable little boy, and a team of friends be enough to convince Silver and Spice to give a real relationship a shot?
Silver & Spice is a steamy, slow burn M/M age gap, fake relationship, forced proximity romance with a silver fox, silver daddy and a younger man ready for a family.
*This is the third book in the Silver in the City series.* Each book focuses on a different couple.*

5 Stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I received a copy of this book from the author and this is my honest review.

Silver and Spice picks up where Silver and Gold left off. There was an emergency with Bay so Kyson rushed to the hospital, thinking the worst.

These two! Kyson has feelings for Bay and at times it’s hard to understand what Bay is feeling because hes so freaking stubborn! I mean, its admirable, he wants to put his son Arlo first, but he doesn’t need to sacrifice love and happiness for himself in order to do so. The perfect partner for him, and second parent for his son is right there in front of his face but hes so blinded by his “life plan” and set in his ways that hes going to lose the best thing that ever happened to him and Arlo.

Ok- confession time! Don’t tell any of the other guys I said this, but of all the couples in this series, Kyson and Bay are my favorites. Maybe that’s why this book was such an emotional read for me. I was ALL OVER THE PLACE! I laughed, cried a couple times, and stressed out for most of the book because I wanted these two to be happy and I knew in my heart they would be happy together. Don’t even get me started on the sexual tension between them. It was so thick you could cut it with a knife.

Silver and Spice had everything I look for in a great book and more, including an adorable little boy and a meddling grandmother who was beyond hilarious. I would love to drink coffee and gossip with Millie, she was the best!

Everyone needs to meet Kyson and Bay. Please remember- I met them first- they are my BESTIES, you can’t have them. I’m serious. If you haven’t already, you need to meet the other men from The Silver in the City series. They are all FANTASTIC!

#Review #NewToMeAuthor #Standalone #MMRomance In the Absence of Light of Light by Adrienne Wilder


For years Grant Kessler has smuggled goods from one end of the world to the next. When business turns in a direction Grant isn’t willing to follow he decides to retire and by all appearances he settles down in a nowhere town called Durstrand. But his real plan is to wait a few years and let the FBI lose interest, then move on to the distant coastal life he’s always dreamed of.

Severely autistic, Morgan cannot look people in the eye, tell left from right, and has uncontrolled tics. Yet he’s beaten every obstacle life has thrown his way. And when Grant Kessler moves into town Morgan isn’t a bit shy in letting the man know how much he wants him.

While the attraction is mutual, Grant pushes Morgan away. Like the rest of the world he can’t see past Morgan’s odd behaviors

Then Morgan shows Grant how light lets you see but it also leaves you blind. And once Grant opens his eyes, he loses his heart to the beautiful enigma of a man who changes the course of his life.

Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00V7MU406/ref=dbs_a_def_awm_hsch_vapi_tkin_p1_i0

In the Absence of Light came highly recommended from a friend. I read the synopsis, was very intrigued, so I borrowed it from Kindle Unlimited.

Grant moved to the little town of Durstrand, in the middle of nowhere, to try and hide out for a while. To kill a few years before moving on to the beach life he has always dreamed of. It seems the little town of Durstrand had more to offer than just a place to lay low for a while.

Morgan is severely autistic. He has many in town who love him and would do anything to protect him. It didn’t take long at all for Grant to notice there was something special about Morgan, something he couldn’t ignore no matter how hard he tried.

I just want to say; this book was not just a book, it was a work of art. It was beautiful, heartbreaking, and spellbinding. I was addicted to the words, the characters, the unique storyline. Everything! Every once in a while, you read something so profound- you want to tell everyone who will listen to READ THIS BOOK! At the same time you also want to complain to anyone who will listen about the 5 star rating system. Because for some books, that is not a proper rating system. In the Absence of Light is one of those books. I wanted to give it ALL THE STARS!!!

About Adrienne Wilder

I am a writer of contemporary and speculative fiction and artist of all things monsters. I live to create new worlds and the people in them. Several of my books have been best sellers both nationally and internationally. I have also been a finalist in the LAMDA awards, the “Oscars” of gay literary works.

I do my best to write original stories with powerful characters and emotion as well as a fast paced plot. My goal isn’t just to deliver a good story but to take the reader into the story and let them experience the characters as if they are right there with them.

While almost all my books have a romantic element, I will be the first to admit, they are not traditional romance. In fact, I’d like to think there is nothing traditional about them. And the stories I paint are done so way outside the lines of traditional genres.

One of my favorite things to do as a writer is push the boundaries of what makes a story and to deliver the unexpected and maybe even change the perspective of the reader.

My characters are more often than not, beautifully flawed, not alway the good guy, and make mistakes. Their stories will take dark turns which, in the end, make the light at the end of the tunnel all the more brighter.

If you’re looking for something different, exciting, and unique, my books are for you.
