All of Me by Cardeno C.


Title: All of Me
Author: Cardeno C.
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Pages: 77
Kisses: 5
Genre: Paranormal Romance, Shifter



Blurb:

Bonded by their parents before they were conceived, Abel Nasa and Zakai “Kai” Berura adored each other since they were children. As teens, the two future Alphas took the next step in their bonding process and vowed to remain true to one another until Kai came of age. But when tragedy struck, Abel felt betrayed and ran from Kai instead of completing the mating bond.

Years pass with no contact between the two, but Abel never stops yearning for the man who was supposed to lead by his side. When Kai returns, broken and on death’s door, Abel must look past what he saw and trust his heart so they can fulfill their destiny and merge their packs.

Review:

I loved this book!

When Abel and Kai reunite and talk through their misunderstandings you can see these two Alphas are meant to be together.

The tender care Abel shows towards Kai and the passion between them will melt your heart!

As usual, Cardeno C., captured me from page one, and kept me enthralled until read I the last page. I didn’t want the story to end!

My library is full of her books and Cardeno C. is on my automatic buy list. If you have not yet read her works you are missing out on this gifted writer.

I recommend this book!

Shoulder Pads and Flannel by Jo Ramsey


Title: Shoulder Pads and Flannel
Author Jo Ramsey
Publisher: Harmony Ink Press
Pages: 184
Characters: Guillermo Garcia and Evan Granger
Sub-Genre Coming out
Kisses: 5




Blurb:

Deep Secrets and Hope: Book Two

High school football star Guillermo Garcia can count himself among the popular kids—for now. Although he secretly dates Evan Granger, who is openly gay and badly bullied for it, Guillermo doesn’t dare let his teammates, classmates, or close-knit family learn about his sexuality.

But Guillermo witnessed an attack on Evan, and now the school bullies plan to out Guillermo in retaliation. In their small town, word spreads rapidly, so Guillermo must make a quick choice—come out now on his own or risk having someone else do it for him.

Review:

Let me start by saying how extremely thrilled I was that this author brought back these wonderful characters! The first book was amazing, but it did leave a lot of questions about what would happen with these two wonderful young men.

I am happy to say that the second book answered all of them.

So on with this story.

Evan has been bullied and beaten his whole life. Not only is he gay in a small town, he likes to wear nail polish, makeup and girls clothes.

Not the best mix.

In all that time the only person to ever come to his rescue is Guillermo. The day he stands up to the bullies, both of their lives change. First Evan realizes that not all jocks are bad. Second, Guillermo realizes he is gay.

This book follows the two boys through the changes, struggles and passion of being two teenage boys in high school. I LOVED IT! I also kinda hope there is a 3rd book with these two. I would love to keep reading about them

Never Let it Go by Emily Moreton


Title: Never Let It Go
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Author: Emily Moreton
Pages: Day Dream (26pg)
Genre: Contemporary
Kisses: 4.5




Blurb:

Will is sent home from Afghanistan, but Isaac and Ade remain. He doesn’t trust news that they’re coming home early until he can see them.

After being seriously injured in an explosion, Will Jones is sent home from Afghanistan – alone. Struggling with the physical and psychological effects of his injuries is hard enough without worrying about the other two-thirds of his threesome, Isaac Andrews and Ade Drew, who are still on assignment. When Will hears that their unit is being recalled to the US early, it should be good news, but Will knows how quickly things can go wrong. He’s not willing to trust until he can lay eyes – and hands – on the men he loves.

Review:

This tale packs a lot of emotion into a short story and is a perfect length to enjoy with a cup of coffee.

The tale follows Will Jones once he is well on the road to recovery after being sent home injured from Afghanistan. Whilst his physical injuries are healing well his mental health isn’t so good. His nightmares relive the moments before he was injured in an horrific explosion that nearly killed him. And if that isn’t bad enough his two lovers Isaac and Ade are still serving in the war zone.

Understandably he worries constantly about their safety and we live that worry with him. Hearing that they are due home early only heightens his concerns and Will is pretty much crippled by his anxiety.

Part of me sympathized with him while part of me wanted to drag him to the airport so he could greet them and reassure himself of their health soon rather than later. However given the sexy way they did eventually greet each other it was probably a good job he stayed home and waited.

I have to admit I was disappointed when the story ended I wanted more energetic threesome sex after they’d slept and whilst Will was realistic enough to realize his nightmares wouldn’t completely stop now his lovers were home I really wanted to know he’d slept soundly that night at least.

I definitely recommend this story.

Every Inferno by Johanna Parkhurst


Title: Every Inferno
Author: Johanna Parkhurst
Publisher: Harmony Ink Press
Pages: 178
Characters: Jacob Jasper Jones, McKinley
Sub-Genre: Coming of Age
Kisses: 4

Blurb:

Depressed. Defiant. Possible alcoholic. These are just a few of the terms used to describe fifteen-year-old Jacob Jasper Jones. Lately, though, JJ has a new one to add to the list: detective. He’s been having strange dreams about the fire that killed his parents ten years ago, and he thinks he finally has the clue to catching the arsonist who destroyed his family.

A murder investigation isn’t the only thing the dreams trigger for JJ, though. They also lead to secret meetings with his estranged sister, an unlikely connection with a doctor who lost his daughter in the fire, and a confusing friendship with McKinley, a classmate of JJ’s who seems determined to help him solve the mystery.

All JJ wants is to shake the problems that have followed him since that fire, and he’s convinced he must catch the arsonist to do it. But as JJ struggles to find the culprit, he sees there’s more than one mystery in his life he needs to solve

Review:

Every Inferno is a wonderful coming of age story of a young man that has been through hell and back.

JJ (Jacob) has lived with the memory of being there when he parents were killed. Now years after the tragedy he is still living with the nightmare of that day. To say that he is a trouble youth is putting it mildly, with run ins with the law and the alcohol abuse is is quickly going down the wrong path.

When a new memory comes up and a chance meeting with McKinley he is drawn into an investigation to find out what really happened on that fateful day. JJ is convinced that finding the murderer will help him put the past behind him and help him break the vicious cycle of his life.

Every Inferno is a great story that sometimes delves into hard territory, but is still fun to read and hard to put down.

Games We Play by Zayne Michaels


Title: Games We Play
Author: Zayne Michaels
Publisher: Evernight Publishing
Pages: 28
Characters: Remy, Colt
POV: 3rd
Sub-Genre: Contemporary, Erotic Romance
Kisses: 4.25


Blurb:

Entering the small bar on the side of the highway, Remy didn’t harbor high expectations for the night, not until he notices the most gorgeous man in the place checking him out from across the room. Casual hookups in dark alleys aren’t his style, but he knows he’d be a fool to pass up such an opportunity.

From the moment the blond beauty stepped into the room, Colt had to have him, even if just for the night. Their parking lot tryst gets off to a sizzling start, especially when Colt realizes the barfly enjoys a firmer hand. It’s just a one night stand, though. What does it matter if he can’t remember the man’s name?

Unfortunately for him, it matters a lot to Remy, and Colt’s one-time fling is about to become much more than he expected.


Review:

Strangers hooking up at a bar. A familiar, titillating opening for a sexy story. Only things aren’t always what they seem at first glance.

For the surprise twist in the story, I give this a thumbs up for creative effort. In fact, I think the idea of playing enticing games like these might have made for an exciting longer novel. Especially when jealousy rears its ugly head, breaking up the mood and the scene. It’s hard to tell what the story is really about without giving too much away.

I liked the dialogue and interplay between Remy and Colt. Their relationship had a sort of realism that was easy to relate to. Love can be such a complex thing. The plot moves at a swift pace, there’s an actual story here, and the writing reflects the efficiency of the length and the heat of sexual prowess and the prowl.

I liked this one quite a bit. Recommended for a hot quickie with a few twists and a couple of stubborn personalities. You’ll have to read this for yourself to figure out what I mean.
