Mason Foxworth has spent the last several months recovering from injuries he received doing personal security while on tour during the horrific fire in Germany. He’d been hitting his stride professionally when he fell through the floor that night, and now his life had been reduced to weekly appointments with physical therapists and various doctors while everyone else around him seemed to have moved on.
He felt useless and alone, and the worst part of it, the physical scarring left behind on his legs from the burns had ruined his self-esteem. Who would want him now, when he was so damaged inside and out and he had nothing much to contribute? He didn’t have a lot of friends and his co-workers felt it was safer to keep Mason at a desk in the office doing paperwork, rather than out in the field doing security. Mason wanted to get that status changed before he lost the last threads of his sanity, and the main obstacle in his way was a bum leg that was taking far too long to heal
Tessler is an enigma in the sci-fi literary world. A young, reclusive author, known for the mystery swirling around him, he realizes he’s lost any real joy in his life when he suddenly starts to feel the strange emotion pumping through his veins. Barely beyond the age of twenty-five and he’s already made more money than most see in a lifetime, but Tessler feels empty within himself and also inside his two-story, meticulously renovated warehouse in the burbs of Los Angeles. What made him this way must remain the mystery it is, or he feels he’ll lose the empire he’s created. But meeting a man he feels could bring all his pieces together is challenging his reasons for anonymity and Tessler suddely finds himself wanting more from life and from himself.
Mason wants his life back and Tessler is just looking to have a real life. Can two vastly different men find a way to smooth out their hard edges and blend their lives to offer the one ingredient neither has: love? Personal growth comes in many different shapes and Mason and Tessler have a mountain of it to climb in order to find their HEA.

Title: Demons

Author: J.L. Drake
Genre: MC Romance

Publisher: Limitless Publishing 
Cover Designer: Deranged Doctors Design

Trigger… 

I thought the light would bring redemption. 

Salvation. 

But it only brought the Devil to my doorstep. 

My demons are breaking through, and the reaper is moving closer. 

My weakness has been exposed, and there’s only one person who can calm this hell… 

Tess… 

I broke a promise to myself, and now I’m paying for it. 

I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to be a part of this hell. 

But I don’t have a choice… 

The reaper is riding bitch on our backs. 

DISCLAIMER to add to online listings:
This is Book 2 in the Devil’s Reach trilogy, and it ends with a cliffhanger. Intended for readers 18 or older. May contain…triggers.



“If what becomes too much? Minnie…” I tried to grab her hand, but she veered off toward Brick. “I thought it was just an edible, as in pot.”


“Hello again, leather pants.” Rail appeared at my side. “I was wondering when we were going to meet you again.” 

Trigger rolled up on his bike. He was in a black t-shirt that hugged his biceps and chest, and dark jeans and boots. His cut seemed a bit tight, a sign he had been working out a lot. 

He didn’t remove his sunglasses, but his stare nearly made me trip as I walked over and took the helmet he handed me. 

“You look good,” he muttered. “You’ve been missing for the past week.” 

“Just dealing with some stuff.” 

“I don’t like it.”

“I know.” I flipped my hair back and pulled the helmet on. “Me either.” I swung my leg over the bike and rested my hands on his hips, and he pulled me so I hugged him. He flicked the engine over and backed us out. 

An hour later, we hit a wall of traffic and came to a complete stop. That was when I began to notice the leather cut that wrapped Trigger’s midsection was as smooth as lamb skin. As I moved my sensitive fingertips over it, I felt a ball of warmth grow in my belly. 

My thighs flexed as Trigger shifted his weight. I didn’t mean to ball his shirt in my hands, but fuck me, everything felt amazing. 

“You okay?” His raspy voice caught me off guard, and I jolted on the seat, and oh-my-God, it was amazing. “Tess?” 

“Please stop moving,” was all that shot out of my mouth. He flipped up his visor and turned to look at me. I shook my head and moaned as his ass rubbed my front. My jaw clenched, and I started to grind my teeth.

“Put your visor up.” 

Oh, shit, don’t get alpha on me. I may lose it right here on the freeway. 

I quickly shoved it up and stared into his confused eyes. 

“What are you on?” 
“Nothing.” I almost moaned when he moved again. 
He stared a beat longer before he snapped his visor down and turned back around. 
Ohhh, yes. I wanted to tap his shoulder to get him to do that again, but the traffic started to move. 
Sweet, horny Lucifer. I’d broken out in a light layer of sweat, and my thighs burned from the grip on the seat. Three hours on the bike, and its vibrations had built me up to a pleasure-painful level. I’d finish myself off if I weren’t surrounded by the crew. 

Thankfully, Trigger signaled we were stopping for a break at the next rest stop. We took the exit and rolled up at the light before the small park. 

When Trigger kicked his foot out to stabilize us, I grabbed the side of his leg and begged my body to let go. 
His hand landed on mine, and I wanted to cry. His touch, his smell, his everything made my world tilt on its axis. I didn’t know how much longer I could hold on. 
I was either going to kill someone or have the most mind-blowing orgasm known to woman in public.
The bike slowed to a stop, and he proceeded to wiggle around then slid the length of his leg across me. I tossed my helmet, and my palms dug deep into the hot leather. I felt like I was balancing on the loose rocks that lined edge of my orgasm. I had never not-wanted to come so badly in my life. 
My mind shifted to images of Trigger touching me. 
Oh, no.
Oh, yes.
Oh, please.
“That’s one major fuck-me face.” Rail burst my steamy moment. 

I glared at him, but it did nothing for my problem. “What?”
“Just makin’ an observation.” 
“Observate somewhere else.” 

“Yeah, you probably need to finish that off.” He wiggled his fingers and winked. 
I closed my eyes and managed to channel my thoughts back to being underneath Trigger. His hands on my skin, his lips on my neck, his…
A shadow crossed my face and blocked my warmth. “What did you take?” 
A deep jolt tore through me as my mind decided if it he was real or not. 
“Please,” I nearly panted. “Don’t talk.” I rubbed my hands down my pants. The leather was warm and sent goosebumps through me. 
“What?” 

“I’m not entirely sure, as this is the first time I ever took ecstasy, but I think I took ecstasy.” 

He blinked “Where did you get E?”

Title: To Fall for Winter

Author: Kelsey Kingsley
Genre: Contemporary Adult Romance

“You think I’m ready to ruin you forever?”
“Oh, Ireland… You’ve already ruined me forever.” 

I’ve been called the Black Sheep. Troublemaker. And probably a dozen other words that are nowhere near that nice. My past is checkered. Full of questionable choices and even worse outcomes. But I’ve put it behind me. I’m on the straight and narrow now.

For two years, I’ve towed the line. Stayed out of trouble. Kept my head above water. And have not made even one reckless decision.

But then Snow came to River Canyon on the first day of winter.

Inked, pierced, and unafraid of speaking her mind, and going after what she wants, she made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Together, I knew we would make a mess. 

I just couldn’t keep myself from getting dirty.

When I was seventeen, my older brother Patrick had a momentary lapse of judgment with a girl he couldn’t stand, and as luck would have it, he had gotten the chick pregnant. 

The night he was told about the pregnancy, he came home and with his head in his hands, he gave our parents the wonderful news. I walked in on that cheerful little conversation, coming in from a night of partying with my friends. I had looked at him, ghost-white and panicked. Then, I looked at my parents, fuming, and also panicked. The three of them had acted for a time as though they were the only ones being affected by it all, but in truth, it was a defining moment in all of our lives.

For our parents, it was the shock of being handed their Grandparent Card before they felt they were ready. It was the reality that their oldest son, their first baby, was having a baby of his own and embarking on a journey of life that would take him places they weren’t permitted. 

For Patrick, it was the rusty—albeit temporary—nail in the coffin that held his relationship with his childhood sweetheart. It was the consequence to trump all others. And, well, I also like to think it was one of the best things to ever happen to him, because I know now that he sees his daughter as anything but a mistake. 

For my twin brother Sean, it was the encouragement he needed to continue being the perfect son. It was the pressure to get good grades, keep his head above water, and although he never said it, it stressed the shite out of him. I could see it in the lines that had formed between his brows. 

For me? Well … 

On that night, after sneaking up to the bedroom I still shared with Sean, all I can remember thinking was, “Well, nothing I do can ever be as disappointing as this. That guy has set the bar, and I will never see myself over it.” And that would have been fine, except that, for me, it wasn’t a warning—it became a dare, and I tested it a little too much. I managed to pass over that bar by the time I was twenty, and I just kept on climbing. 

And it wasn’t that I was a bad guy, keep in mind. I just couldn’t seem to help myself. I just found trouble, or maybe it found me. Who the hell knows. 

Still, by some miracle, I had never knocked a girl up. 

Maybe things would have been better if I had. 

And this was what I thought about while we did the cliché bullshite of having a smoke after sex.


 

Kelsey Kingsley lives in New York with her family and a cat named Ethel.

She believes there is nothing better than a good doughnut and a cup of tea, and that there is a song for everything.

PRE-ORDER/RELEASE BLITZ ~ Title: A Twisted Love Story ~ Series: A Twisted Fairy Tale ~ Author: Ace Gray ~ Genre: M/M Romance ~ Release Date: March 1, 2018 

Title: A Twisted Love Story
Series: A Twisted Fairy Tale
Author: Ace Gray
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: March 1, 2018 

Boy meets girl. Boy falls for girl. Boy marries girl. And they both live happily ever after. Right?

Not quite.

I fell for the boy. So slowly I barely noticed then all at once. I loved my best friend with my entire heart, letting him fill up the holes my family had dug. But boys don’t fall for other boys. Just ask him. 

So my story turned into boy meets boy. Boy falls for boy. Boy gets rejected. Boy meets girl. Boy meets boy. Boy loses them over and over and over again. 

Pretty twisted, right?

My life story was really just a screwed up love story. A search for the one person that understood the darkness inside me. The monster I’d become. But sometimes the holes are too deep and far too bloody, for anyone—boy or girl—to fill.


“I’ve read all of Ace Gray’s books and this one is the highest, most stunning quality I’ve seen out of her.Don’t get me wrong about the beauty of this… the beauty is only seen with open eyes and an open mind. Do NOT pick up this book if you are a prude in any way (that is not an insult), this book gets nitty-gritty and ugly and sex… holy shit, lots and lots and lots of sex (i.e., “fucking”) – primarily M/M. But if you’re game for some dark ugliness that turns into a true love story… giddy-up.  This is the deepest, darkest, purest, most well-written book I’ve seen this year. Ace has my full-hearted, hefty five-star rating on this. Devil’s in the Ace.” ~  Love N. Books

“I wont go into the plot, you need to read it to get the full effect. But trust me when I say that this book is utterly gripping. It’s deliciously dark and twisty, but the love that shines through that dark? wow, it’s beautiful. Ace is a genius at writing these dark tales, but making them heart warming in a way not many can manage. Her writing is a kind of gritty poetry at times, and ATLS is her best work to date.” ~ EmmBooks

 

Just be with me.

God, the thought had never occurred to me. It was even more foreign than dating. Mickey commanded, Siobhan made me bleed, Cole took, even Callum had made me his. Only Elle was ever unselfish. Unselfish and uninterested in being mine. 

But here was Conrad. Between my knees, telling me the reasons he liked me, looking past the monster I’d become. He was the definition of extraordinary and my heart had seen that coming somehow. 

I wanted to touch him. I wanted to explore. I wanted to go slow and tremble and travel someone else’s skin. 

And a part of me still wanted to say stop. That I wasn’t ready.

My hands shook as I pushed them through his hair. He closed his eyes and leaned into my touch with a perfect, husky purr. I let them wander down the back of his neck and my thumbs rubbed along his hairline. When they made their way to his jaw, I tilted his head. 

His lips shone and I let my eyes trace them, their shape and the soft sheen from the light of the movie still playing in the background. Mine parted as I sucked in a deep breath without taking my eyes from his mouth. Blood coursed through my body, shooting anticipation through my veins like a drug. Nerves too. 

Normally I’d crash land into him—I mean I wanted him desperately and was so afraid of where anything more could go—but instead, I moved slowly, inching toward him and pressing a tender kiss to that shimmering pout as a thank you for the words that felt special against my soul.

 

Ace Gray is a self-proclaimed troublemaker and connoisseur of both the good life and fairy tales. After a life-long love affair with books, she undertook writing the novel she wanted to read, which culminated in her first release STRICTLY BUSINESS and followed with, well, quite a few more. When she’s not writing, she works in craft beer. Originally a small town, Colorado girl, she now loves rainy days, shellac manicures, coffee shops and bourbon—all of which are bountiful in her adopted home of Portland, OR where she runs amok with her chef husband and husky pup.

Kennedy Fox

Genre:  Romance

My Rating:  5

SYNOPSIS:

Introducing book 1 in the Bishop Brothers series! A steamy new southern romance series by USA Today Bestselling author duo, Kennedy Fox!
Each book is a complete interconnected STANDALONE! HEA guaranteed!

Alex Bishop is your typical cowboy.

Charming, sexy, and wears a panty-melting smirk.
Working on the ranch helped build his solid eight-pack and smoking body. He’s every girl’s wet fantasy and he knows it too.

Alex doesn’t follow the rules of your typical playboy bachelor. After wining and dining his dates and giving them the best night of their lives, he always sends flowers and calls the next day—even if it’s to say, let’s just be friends. His mama taught him manners after all and his southern blood knows how to be a gentleman. Still, that isn’t enough to tame the wildest of the Bishop brothers.

River Lancaster has finally met the man of her dreams. Too bad after six months of romantic bliss, she finds out he’s married. With a broken heart and blind rage, she books herself a ticket to Key West, Florida. Tired of cheaters and liars, she’s set on escaping to forget he ever existed. Who needs a man when there’s an all-you-can-drink margarita bar, anyway? That’s what she tells herself until she bumps into the right guy who can make all those bad memories disappear.
Even if it’s only temporarily.

Two weeks on the beach is what they both need. No strings attached, no expectations, no broken hearts. Too bad the universe has other plans—one that’ll change the entire course of their lives in just nine short months.

**A contemporary romance with a little southern drama**
Not suitable for readers under 18 due to adult language and sexual content.

MY REVIEW:

Taming Him (Bishop Brothers Book 1)Taming Him by Kennedy Fox

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars! I loved this fun, flirty, sexy book! Taming Him by author duo Kennedy Fox.
Who doesn’t love a sexy cowboy? Not me, that’s for sure. There was a time when all I read over the course of a couple of months were cowboys.

In this story we not only have a sexy, rugged, gorgeous cowboy. Alex Bishop is charming, loyal, dependable and a complete gentleman (with a panty melting Texas drawl). Alex comes from a large family. They are loud and endearing but they are also loyal and dependable. His brothers each have different personalities and I can’t wait to read their books when available.

I want to say that Alex is a man whore but that might leave you to believe he is a pig. He is definitely not a pig. A stallion, for sure. 😉 Alex is not the relationship type. At least not yet anyway. Currently in his twenties, Alex feels there is time to settle down. But what he never realized is you don’t get to choose who you fall in love with or when. Alex’s friend Dylan (who I pray will have his own book as well) wins a vacation to the Florida Keys in which he can bring a date. Since Dylan is single, he invites Alex. For two whole weeks they plan to soak up the sun, relax and have some fun with the ladies. Little does Alex realize is that this vacation will change his entire life.

I just want to add here that I absolutely love Dylan! I want more Dylan!

River lets her bff Natalie talk her into tagging along on her and her boyfriend’s vacation. River is recently single after finding out her lying boyfriend is married. So she is looking forward to a getaway. She is looking forward to some fun. Looking forward to forget.

Because River is mistrusting of men, she and Alex don’t get off to a great start. But Alex is more than a little intrigued by River so he doesn’t give up. River doesn’t have a chance because who can resist a sexy, southern cowboy who is also a gentlemen? Alex’s persistence is endearing. He kept me smiling throughout.

So without giving away any details, when their two weeks in paradise are over they each go their own ways. But life has other plans then to keep them apart.

When Alex and River reunite, it isn’t all roses. Fortunately it doesn’t take too long before they are planning their lives together. There are a few obstacles they need to overcome first, but nothing too angsty. I absolutely loved this book! I loved all of Alex’s family, his best friend Dylan, and River’s friend Natalie. I believe the next book in this series will feature oldest brother Evan. We got a short snippet of that story in the end. Evan is the quiet, serious, and broody brother. I can’t wait to see him fall in love!

Taming Him had a steady pace, the writing flowed well and I quickly found myself devouring this book. If you are a fan of cowboy meets city girl, you’ll love this book. You will love it even if you’re not. Not too mention, I have yet to read a Kennedy Fox book that I didn’t love.

Happy Reading!
This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

My Review:

The Safe BetThe Safe Bet by Brittney Sahin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

5 Stars to The Safe Bet by author Brittney Sahin.

Fantastic! This was another amazing book by Brittney. And since I have read several of her books, I am not surprised. The Safe Bet is the first book in the Hidden Truths series. Strangely enough, I started this series with book four (Surviving The Fall) which was so good. As a matter of fact I remembering recommending that book to anyone who would listen. If you are interested, you can find my review here on GR.

That said, this book is romantic suspense at its best. I read a lot a books in this genre, however I can honestly say that Brittney Sahin is on the top five of my favorites list. She has a talent for writing mystery and intrigue with a side of anxiety and angst at is best. This book had so many feels, great tension between the H/h and a cast of secondary characters with their own complexity which you will read about in their own books. This book is a fast-paced page turner.

The road to HEA is not easy.

Michael Maddox is a multimillionaire, sexy, gorgeous, arrogant and former military. He has a list of personal issues that will break your heart. He is a man who doesn’t believe in happily ever afters. Especially not where he is concerned. As a result, Michael does not let feelings get involved when he is with a woman. But that all changes when he meets Kate. So now, not only is he fighting the demons of his past, he is fighting his feelings for Kate.

Kate is an event planner brought to Charlotte to work with the Maddox corporation to plan a fundraiser for military veterans in the hopes to help them through their struggles in the civilian world. While she is working with Michael and his sister, Kate finds herself having more attention than she can handle. Especially when some of that attention is brought on by a mysterious and dangerous stalker.

What I loved about this storyline was its unpredictability. Part of my reading enjoyment is trying to guess the plot. But it was not easy in this book. There was more going on that I guessed. And while I was able to figure some of it out, there were occurrences I did not see coming.

Unfortunately, this is one of the reviews I have to be careful with my words. I don’t want to spoil any of this book for you.

As of right now, the Hidden Truths series has four books available starring Michael Maddox and his equally sexy and flawed friends. Additionally coming this summer will sadly be the last in this series so while that is sad, it also means you have plenty of time to catch up with all the books.

If you are are fan of romantic suspense/mystery, I wholeheartedly recommend this author. I promise you will not be disappointed!

This is my honest and unbiased review. Thank you for taking the time to read it. 🙂

Brittney Sahin began writing at an early age, with the dream to be a published author before the age of 18. Although academic pursuits (and, later, a teaching career) interrupted her aspirations, she never stopped writing—never stopped imagining.

It wasn’t until her students encouraged her to follow her dreams that Brittney said goodbye to Upstate New York in order to start a new adventure in the place she was raised: Charlotte, North Carolina. Here, she decided to take her students’ advice and begin to write again.

In 2015, she published her first novel, Silenced Memories. When she is not working on upcoming novels, she spends time with her family. She is a proud mother of two boys and a lover of suspense novels, coffee, and the outdoors.
