Synopsis

The path to true love is never easy, especially when you are on opposite sides of the world’s greatest theological debate.

It’s Halloween, and the Demon of Masturbation—Dom, for short—has come to Earth to collect sins and souls for his boss. But a representative from the Interfering Angel Network—Ian—has been sent to put a crimp in his plans. Frankly, though, the two seem less interested in sins and souls than in the three bottles of tequila they down during the night. Alcohol can lower the inhibitions, but it also impacts judgment, and Dom and Ian soon find themselves in the world’s most awkward threesome with a young mortal virgin.

Forget battling for his soul—their real passion seems to be for each other. But Halloween night is waning fast, and the veil between the worlds is only lifted for one night. How can two beings from opposite sides come together when they know they are destined to forever be apart?

A Jeri Review: Love By Number by DJ Jamison

Standard

Rating: 3 Stars out of 5

This was a cute little book that could have gone a lot deeper.
Aidan is “close to being on the spectrum” of autism. But all of his mannerisms and quirks say that he is definitely on the spectrum. Quite a bit was spent on saying how different he was. Which is fine, and I actually really like Aidan, I just wish there wasn’t that qualifier right at the beginning of the book about being “close to”.
Jesse is drawn to Aidan when he sees him at a baseball game he is attending with his grandfather. And then quite literally runs into him in the parking lot. Jesse has about zero interest in baseball, but goes with his grandfather because it makes him happy.
So while Jesse and Aidan were complete opposites, I didn’t really get that opposites attract vibe from them at all. Their relationship kind of seemed like convenience brought on by a meddling grandfather. It was cute, for sure, but there was no substance at all.
I enjoyed Jesse’s grandfather a lot. I thought he was adorable- especially the way he tried to fix up Aidan and Jesse. And Jesse’s mother was great. Supporting him without being too overly protective.
The story was ok for what it was. I am glad it wasn’t longer, but I definitely think it needed more.
Cover art is eye catching and perfect.

A MelanieM Release Day Review: Half Breeds by Sara Codair

Standard

Rating: 3.75 stars out of 5

Kicked out of private school, Allen has to brave a public high school where most of the kids don’t know supernatural creatures exist. He expects to be miserable, but he finds himself romantically pursued by two people: a shy, but fascinating boy named Jeremy and a spunky girl named Chloe. The demon in Allen wants to feed off Chloe, but the human part of him is falling for Jeremy. Which will win?

I liked Half Breeds and thought the story was  intriguing.  I loved the characters and the plot.  I only wish there was a little more of the backhistory filled in because in such a short story, this left some big narrative holes to leap over.

Allan and Jeremy are terrific together and you feel for Chloe.  Sara Codair makes Chloe a girl trying to do the right thing for Allan, not realizing the danger she’s in.

This is a neat little story that actually could make a wonderful larger novel.  It’s still one I definitely recommend and not just for the Halloween holiday season.

A MelanieM Release Day Review: The Reunion by M.D. Neu

Standard

Rating: 5 stars out of 5

It’s been twenty years since the quiet Midwestern town of Lakeview was struck by tragedy.  But every year on the anniversary of the event Teddy returns home for ‘The Reunion’. Lakeview, like Teddy, has secrets and not all mysteries should come to light.

I read The Reunion by M.D. Neu last of the 4 stories I had and I’m glad I did because I’m still thinking about it.  It’s beautifully written, I fell in love with the characters and the format in which the story is told is guaranteed to leave a chill in your heart and your mind running in circles.

I thought I knew where the author was going with the story and time after time, they proved me wrong.  And that ending….

Yes, this is a must read.  Grab it up now.  And let me know what you think!

Cover art by Natasha Snow is perfect.

A MelanieM Release Day Review: Hula Dancers and Hauntings (Gabe Maxfield Mysteries #2.5) by J.C. Long

Standard

Rating: 4 stars out of 5:

It’s Halloween time in Hawai’i and of course Gabe Maxfield is in business. Gabe owes lu’au owner Hiapo a favor (read Tiki Torches and Treasure to find out why!) so when weird things start happening at his lu’au, strange enough to frighten off his hula dancers, he comes to Gabe for help. Skeptical as always, Gabe steps into a creepy mystery where things are going missing or getting moved around and people are disappearing left and right. Can he solve the mystery before everyone he knows falls prey to the woods?

Hula Dancers and Hauntings (Gabe Maxfield Mysteries #2.5) by J.C. Long is one of a series of short stories being released by NineStar Press for Halloween and they are all just terrific.  In Hula Dancers and Hauntings (Gabe Maxfield Mysteries #2.5), J.C. Long takes us to Hawaii and an established couple, one of which has never been scared.  Oh Gabe watches horror movies with his lover and things of that nature but he’s never been truly frightened until a friend of theirs comes to his P.I. business needing to trade in a favor.

I won’t go any further.  J.C. Long does a really nice job with bringing in the Hawaiian culture, establishing the location and his people with the colloquialisms and local terms as necessary.  I liked his characters and he totally had me hooked with his premise.  I’ll say no more.  Great job and great story.

A MelanieM Release Day Review: Second Level by Drew Marvin Frayne

Standard

Rating: 5 stars out of 5

The path to true love is never easy, especially when you are on opposite sides of the world’s greatest theological debate.

It’s Halloween, and the Demon of Masturbation—Dom, for short—has come to Earth to collect sins and souls for his boss. But a representative from the Interfering Angel Network—Ian—has been sent to put a crimp in his plans. Frankly, though, the two seem less interested in sins and souls than in the three bottles of tequila they down during the night. Alcohol can lower the inhibitions, but it also impacts judgment, and Dom and Ian soon find themselves in the world’s most awkward threesome with a young mortal virgin.

Forget battling for his soul—their real passion seems to be for each other. But Halloween night is waning fast, and the veil between the worlds is only lifted for one night. How can two beings from opposite sides come together when they know they are destined to forever be apart?

Second Level by Drew Marvin Frayne has to be one of my favorites simply because I laughed so much.  And it had such a neat twist at the end.  But mostly because of the humor and the wonderful characters.  Dom the Demon of Masturbation is priceless, especially when he’s musing on how beauty and body image has changed over the centuries.  What’s a short, chunky demon to do?

However, it’s in the swing towards poignancy towards the end where the depth of the story really kicks in and pulls at your heart, surprisingly so after sort of labeling the story a comedy.  No there’s more to this little gem than just that.  Read it and find out for yourself why I highly recommend it.

Cover art by Natasha Snow is again just perfect.

A MelanieM Review: Deacon’s Law (Heroes #3) by RJ Scott

Standard

Rating: 4 stars out of 5

Undercover cop Deacon Shepherd lost everything trying to maintain his cover – the man he loved and the future he craved. He walked away and never looked back because it was the only way to keep Rafe alive.

The last thing he needs is to be dragged back in that world, but an attempt on Rafe’s life is enough to make him risk his heart again.

Rafael ‘Rafe’ Martinez wakes up in hospital, the victim of a hit and run. He’s stunned when the first face he sees is that of the man who betrayed him and left him for dead three years before. Witness protection had stripped Rafe of his name and now it seems someone from his past wants him dead. The only way he can stay alive is to trust the man who tried to kill him and then broke his heart. But how can he ever trust Deacon, and how can Deacon protect Rafe without falling in love all over again?

Deacon’s Law is the third in the Heroes series by RJ Scott and it has everything you’ve come to expect from this series and author.  It has a suspense filled story,  multiple murders and a couple at odds with each other although they’ve fallen in love and an villain after them, whether it’s a person or organization.  In this case, a bit of both.

I love this series and the first two stories totally did it for me, as did their couples.  Deacon Shepherd?  Hot, hot, hot!  A undercover cop who went too deep inside an operation that was  bad in every way; drugs, murder, and, child trafficking, Deacon ended up getting emotionally involved in his last case, and has been paying for it ever since.  R.J. Scott gets us inside this complicated man.  She gives him layers, the hardness necessary to do the job he does as well as the pain and regret for the things he does and the life he feels he cannot have.  He’s one of those “let me be your bandage” men that readers always  connect with immediately.

Then there’s Rafe Martinez, who honestly keeps doing so many irresponsible things throughout this story I can’t even remember what his “new” name is under the Witness Protection program is.  He’s my problem here.  I liked everything else. I liked the storyline.  The crazed nutcase from the past, the suspense and the heart-stopping chases that RJ Scott does so  well.  All great!  But Rafe who goes after his uncle by himself to begin with, then disobeys WITSEC commands endangering everyone around him, and then continues to do so.  I won’t even go into his stubbornness about his protection detail because I get that.  No, I don’t get him withholding information on the location to look for said nutcase because it might affect deceased dad’s reputation (there are kidnapped children potentially involved here) or the way he escaped after being hit by a car, even with a heavy cast and wounded.   I just wanted to shake him myself.   So yes, there’s that.

Luckily, the story’s rocketing suspense pulled me in as did Deacon that I sort of went along with the romance.  Hey, we have know those couples where we only like one half of them right? Plus I got Kayden from the Sanctuary series which remains one of my all time favorite RJ Scott series, which is always a delight.  There is a happy ending that ties up all the loose plot threads in such a way that I wondered if this wasn’t the end for Heroes.  I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Can you read this as a stand alone?  I guess so but having the other books as a foundation certainly helps.  And not everyone will find they have the problems with Rafe that I did.  Others will absolutely adore him.  I found Deacon’s Law a fun, suspenseful read and a neat third installment to the Heroes series.  Yes, I recommend it as I do all the books in the series.

Cover art by Meredith Russell works for the characters and story, as well as branding the series.

A Lila Review: His Convenient Husband (Love and Sports #1) by Robin Covington

Standard

Rating: 4 stars out of 5

NFL football player Isaiah Blackwell lost his husband three years ago and is raising their teen son alone. He lives his life as quietly as his job allows, playing ball to support his family but trying not to draw unwanted attention. His quiet life is shaken up when a mutual friend introduces him to Victor, a visiting principal ballet dancer who is everything Isaiah is not.

Brash and loud, Victor Aleksandrov has applied for political asylum to avoid returning to Russia, where gay men are targeted and persecuted. He’s been outspoken about gay rights in his home country, and if he doesn’t get asylum, going back to Russia is a death sentence.

Their one-night stand turns into a tentative friendship, a relationship they both agree is temporary…until Victor’s denied asylum. Isaiah can’t offer Victor a happily ever after, but he can propose something that’ll keep Victor in the US and safe…marriage. He just doesn’t expect his new husband to dance away with his heart.

His Convenient Husband is an interesting take on the classic “arranged marriage for legal status” troupe. In most books, only the couple is privy to this information, but in this case, Isaiah’s and Victor’s families and close friends knew the truth; which I like better. They didn’t have to fake their relationship and it grew organically.

Since they were attracted to each other since the beginning it was easy to see where their story would end. How much they tried to keep their feelings out of their friendship and how much of a surprise it was for them to fall for each other. Both men lived very independent lives, and love wasn’t in their plans.

Even when this is an NFL story, it takes place offseason. So there’s no game or football jargon to follow. Most of the story concentrates on Victor’s and Isaiah’s inner tumult and how they avoid anything more than a friendship. We do get to see Victor’s practices and performances, though.

The only thing I wasn’t a fan was the large gaps of time in the story. I wanted to learn more about how they became a family and their interaction with Isaiah’s son, but most of those happened off-page. The moments we did read about were very sweet. As well as the rest of the characters.

The cover by Erin Dameron-Hill shows a handsome Isiah and it highlights his aloof attitude. The rest is a bit simplistic.

How can you trust the man who tried to kill you?


Undercover cop Deacon Shepherd lost everything trying to maintain his cover – the man he loved and the future he craved. He walked away and never looked back because it was the only way to keep Rafael alive.


The last thing he needs is to be dragged back in that world, but an attempt on Rafael’s life is enough to make him risk his heart again.


Rafael ‘Rafe’ Ramirez wakes up in the hospital, the victim of a hit and run. He’s horrified when the first face he sees is that of the man who betrayed him and left him for dead three years before. Witness protection had stripped Rafe of his family and friends, and now it seems his sacrifice to bring his Uncle to justice was for nothing.


Someone wants Rafe dead, and the only way he can stay alive is to go with the murdering drug dealer who broke his heart. But how can he ever trust Deacon, and how can Deacon protect Rafe without falling in love all over again?


 

Excerpt
 

Rafe opened his eyes, attempting to focus on the ceiling above him. He tried to lift his hand, but it felt as if there was lead in his veins, everything heavy and he couldn’t move. They’d told him he was getting better, so what the hell had happened? Had he relapsed? Why was he convinced that they’d taken him somewhere in an ambulance? That he’d leaned against a leather jacket that smelled of sunshine and soap? He blinked until the ceiling finally coalesced into the tiles he was familiar with.


Only there were no tiles.


Instead, the ceiling was a smooth white, and there were no strip lights, just a lampshade in a curious shade of blue. He blinked again. This didn’t make sense. 


But when he opened his eyes, nothing had changed. The ceiling was still white, the lampshade blue, and the drapes at the window matched the shade. The drapes. There were drapes at the window. Confusion morphed into panic and he turned his head to the right to get a better feel for where he was and he saw…him.


Sprawled awkwardly in the chair, his head back, long limbs this way and that, clearly too big for the chair, was a specter from a past that wouldn’t leave him alone.


Deacon.


Intense fear sliced into Rafe.


They’d found him, had him strapped to a bed…was it Deacon who’d tracked him down and driven a car at him? He was paralyzed with a fear that made it hard to breathe, and he yanked at his hand, hoping to escape his restraints, only he wasn’t tied down, there was no rope. Instead his hand came up fast and he rolled sideways. Catching himself and coming off the bed, forgetting the fact that his leg was in a cast and toppling sideways, falling with a crash into a cabinet. He flailed but couldn’t stop himself falling, and he knew this was it – this time he was really going to die.


Deacon was up and at his side in an instant, and Rafe wanted to shut his eyes, wanted to block out seeing Deacon’s face again as he died, but he had to watch. He wanted Deacon to see his fear, and maybe that would stop him; maybe he could make Deacon stop and think.


“Shit, Rafe— Craig,” Deacon said, and reached for him, grasping his arms.


Terror became ice inside him, and Rafe stopped fighting; like a deer caught in headlights, he froze.


“What happened?” A second man stood in the doorway, someone Rafe didn’t know – tall, dark and dangerous-looking. Maybe this new arrival could stop Deacon?


“Help me,” Rafe forced out, looking past Deacon, scrambling to stand as the ice melted and he pushed himself to move.


“He woke up, saw me, and fell out of bed,” Deacon said, and the other man came right in. There were two of them, and there was little Rafe could do to get away. There and then, he screwed his eyes shut; nothing was going to save him now.


But there was no pain, no bullet. Instead, the two men helped him to stand, and then he felt the bed at the back of his thighs and they sat him down.


“Are you okay?” Deacon asked. Even with his eyes shut, Rafe recognized his voice. He would never forget the tone of it, or the coldness of the man who’d tried to kill him. He said nothing.


“Open your eyes,” the other man asked.


No.


“Craig? Rafe? My name is Mac. We’re here to help you.”


But fear was choking him and he couldn’t breathe. “No,” he managed between attempts to inhale enough oxygen not to pass out.


“He’s panicking. What the hell did you do, D?”


“Tried to fucking kill him three years ago, remember?”

BLURB

After a disastrous relationship in college, Jasper Welsh swore he’d never let anyone that close to him again. But after watching his twin fall in love with the man of his dreams, Jasper starts to realize that maybe there’s more to life than meaningless hook ups. After all, it’s been almost a decade since he’s taken a chance on someone again.

When a brutal ex almost kills Liam Campbell, he runs away with his best friend to Wyoming for Christmas with Rhett’s family. Little does he know, that even though he’s still broken and bruised, Liam’s life is about to be completely turned upside down when he meets Rhett’s brother, Jasper. But there’s no way Jasper could be interested in someone like him, right?

When Liam’s ex finds him in Wyoming and one of their family members almost pays the ultimate price, will the Welsh family forgive him for bringing danger to their family? Or will they fight for the battered young man and accept him with open arms?

Choices are made, and chances are taken when Jasper and Liam realize that their attraction for one another can’t be denied and must be explored. But with a wedding in the planning stages and an unforgettable bachelor party in Vegas, does the new couple really want to steal the grooms’ thunder?

My Choice, My Chance is the second book in the Men of Crooked Bend series. Each book in the series will focus on a different couple but will be better enjoyed as a series as the couples all make appearances in each book. Each book contains sexually explicit material between two men and is intended for adults over 18.

EXCERPT

I finally made it to our new house with everything. I wanted to cry when I pulled into the driveway and saw Jasper’s truck there. How in the hell was I going to set everything up for my romantic picnic surprise if he was already there?

Admitting defeat and coming to the conclusion that tonight was not going to be the night to tell Jasper that I loved him, I got out of Baloo and walked up to the house to search for Jasper.

I was floored when I walked into the house. Jasper made a trail of lit candles. They started at the front door inviting me to continue inward. I followed the small flames, making my way to the living room. The sight before me made me gasp and start to cry. There, in the middle of the living room, surrounded by candles, and with a blanket and several pillows laid out on the floor was Jasper. It seems my man had the exact same idea as me! He obviously came straight here from the Realtor’s office instead of going to his office in Jackson like he’d told me.

I didn’t move at first. I noticed Jasper started to look uncomfortable so I slowly made my way toward him and the little picnic he had put together for us.

“Jasper, what…”

“Liam, just give me a minute here, alright?”

I had no idea what Jasper planned but I knew that there was absolutely no way I was going to let him go another night without telling him exactly how I felt. With as wonderful and sweet as this all was, this was my plan. Did I talk in my sleep? Nobody ever mentioned me talking in my sleep before so probably not. How was it that Jasper came up with the exact same idea as me? I took a big breath and did my best to calm myself and stepped into the room. I didn’t stop there. Nope! In true Liam fashion I walked right up to Jasper and hauled off and whacked him on the shoulder. Not the most romantic move ever.

“Liam! What the hell?”

“How dare you, Jasper!”

“How dare I what? You’re mad I try to be romantic for you? What? You want me to be an asshole or something?”

“No! I love it when you’re romantic. I love it when you plan trips and dinners and send me flowers and candy and stuff. It’s an amazing feeling knowing that you care enough about me to do all of those things for me.”

“Then why in the hell did you just hit me?”

“Because! You ruined my surprise!”

“How did I ruin your surprise? I haven’t even told you your surprise yet!”

We were both upset and started raising our voices, shouting at each other by that point. Not one of our best moments.

“What do you mean you haven’t given me my surprise yet? I had everything all planned and you beat me to it! I was going to come in and set up a romantic dinner for you, but you beat me to it, Jasper!” I was openly bawling by then. It was not a pretty sight. I know, I’ve seen me when I cried in the past. My face gets red and splotchy when I cry.

“Liam, I haven’t given you your surprise yet because the dinner isn’t your surprise. I wanted to give you a perfect romantic dinner so I could tell you just how much you mean to me.

Taylor Logo

After several years of daydreaming about sexy men in her head, Taylor decided to finally start writing about them! That’s where the Men of Crooked Bend came from, although at the time, she had no idea as to what she would name the town, nor what state it would be even be in. She quickly learned that even though she had ideas in her head, it was her characters that ultimately decided what would happen in each story. She goes into each adventure with a set plan but already knows that in the end, things will change and that her characters are going to get their way.

When she’s not writing about sexy men, she loves to read about them. Even if, her reading time has become less frequent since she started writing, she still tries to find time to read at least once a week.

She is a busy mom of three and one kitten named Lucky. If she’s not writing or reading about sexy men, she’s either running to some band function or another or is busy cheering from the stands at basketball games or marital arts functions.

Her Men of Crooked Bend Series is her first series but she already has two spin-off series planned!
