  • Valan’s Mate by Mardi Maxwell

    Valan's Bondmate (Zarronian Warriors Book 1)Valan’s Bondmate by Mardi Maxwell

    My rating: 4 of 5 stars

    This is a brand new world created by the amazing mind of Mardi Maxwell.

    Valan is a warrior in his world. Unfortunately, he has only a small window of time left to find his mate or he will be lost forever. The only problem, the Zaronnian females were all killed. The race is now forced to look to their enemy to find their ONE. She will treated as a courtesan or as a prisoner. How she reacts will decide.

    Lia hates her sire. She could never call him anything but the man whose sperm caused her existence. He is determined to give her to a vile man. One night she is taken from her bed and is thrust into a new world.

    What starts out as a tumultuous relationship, turns into one made in the heavens.

  • “Unobtainable” by Jennifer Rose Cover Reveal

     

      

    Release Date: July 15th
    Cover Photo: Shutterstock

     Cover Design: Gemma/Dark Phreak Arts

     

     

    Synopsis:

    My name is Dyson Michaels and my life got flipped upside down the day my grandfather passed away and in his ultimate wisdom, he chose to mess with my life from beyond the grave.

     ~Six months prior~

     “…therefore, in layman’s terms, unless you are married by July 18th, and within five years produce an heir, your portion of your grandfather’s estate and shares will be divided equally between your
    three siblings. You will inherit nothing.

     If you marry but do not produce an heir, your shares will be divided among your siblings.

     If you do not wed by said date, you may if you should so choose to, keep your position with your grandfather’s company and draw a salary. You will also be entitled the corporate benefits program. Do you have any questions?…”

    I knew by the word marriage, that it meant in the conventional way, with the usual I do between a man and a woman in a church with all the bells and whistles. I wanted to say no, I should have said no, but like the fool I am I said yes.

    And now I’m trying to explain to everyone, why it is that I’m breaking Rebecca’s heart and I’ve been living a lie all my life.

    I’m still waiting for that bolt of lightning to strike me dead.

     **Warning: M/M Romance, containing explicit language and sexual contentment recommended for readers 18+**.

  • Long Change by V.L. Locey

    My Review

    Grown up with a silver spoon in his mouth, Boone was destined to go to an ivy league school However he wasn’t going for business, medicine or law, he was going for hockey. Top collegiate goaltender, Boone has a secret he has kept his whole life. He is gay. Pro sports teams might be more accepting of his sexual preference, but in school or in his family, he has to hide.

    Preston is a former figure skater who, after an injury, can’t do jumps anymore. So he can still be on the ice he loves, he becomes the new mascot for his schools ice hockey team. He is not just gay, he is flamboyantly gay. Open and proud.

    The minute Boone sees Preston, he knows he is in trouble. His secret is threatened to be revealed. With Preston’s help, Boone learns to accept himself as a gay man and supports him when he needs him the most. Boone might lose almost anything, but he will gain the love he never had.

    LongChange_MSRSynopsis

    Collegiate superstar goalie Boone Crockett seems to have the world at his feet. He’s rich, handsome, attends an elite college and is a hot prospect for the pros. Pity all that is a front for a deeply closeted and troubled young man.

    All Boone’s life plans are shattered when flamboyant ex-figure skater Preston Gordon, an orange-haired twink, shows up to audition for the team’s mascot position wearing sequins, scarves and toe picks. His moves on the ice send Boone into his own pirouette of frustrated and reluctant desire.

    As senior year progresses Boone slides deeper and deeper into a dangerous depression, Preston’s sensual strength the only thing he has to hold on to. If Boone can’t keep from plunging through the thin ice he’s skating on, it could take a twink to make the big save.

  • Repaired by Melissa Collins

    repaired blog tour

     

    My Review

    Liam ran away from home.  He has his own reasons of why, but he has always kept it to himself.  He made a new life for himself on Long Island.  Caught by someone he thought would force him home again, what he gets is a new family and a much needed job.

    Parker has been looking for acceptance by his father his entire life.  Once he came out to his father, it seems he would never get that.  One bad day at work only get worse when his car breaks down.  He walks to the nearest shop to get towed.  When he gets there, he finds someone there that not only will repair is car, but eventually his soul.

    Together, Liam and Parker repair each other’s heart and soul.  This is a beautiful love story and proves that love can conquer all.

    repaired cover (1)Synopsis

    Liam Davis is a man without a past. That’s what he wants everyone to believe, anyway. Hell-bent on erasing any memories of his previous life, he knows that starting over is all he can do. Hiding who he is, where he’s from, why he’s running, and especially who he’s left behind, Liam has run away from everything he’s ever known. His plan works perfectly until one day when Parker Ryan threatens to expose his carefully concealed world.

    Parker Ryan is a man without a future. Sure, he’s a partner in one of New York’s most prestigious law firms, but he’ll never be more than a failure in the eyes of his boss, his father. Rather than break away from his father’s standards, he finds himself mindlessly pursuing them, in turn sacrificing anything that would actually make him happy.

    When Liam’s and Parker’s lives collide, the ugly truth about who they really are, and who they hope to become reveals itself when they least expect it. As both of their lives become wrecked beyond all belief, they’ll learn how to rely on each other in their journey to become Repaired.

    melissa collins bioAbout the Author

    Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream.

    Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.

  • BOYSTOWN: Season Three by Jake Biondi

    My Review

    Like I said before, this series is more like a screen play than a book. I know there is a crusade to make this series into a television show on a cable channel. I really think that is possible if the right people catch a whiff of it.

    This season of BOYSTOWN, we continue the stories of friends and lovers in Chicago. Love, deceit, tragedy, comedy, and intrigue. All the wonderful components to make any soap opera a hit. Like any soap, there are story lines I love and can’t get enough of, and some that I can’t wait until they resolve so that I can stop hearing about them. If you are a soap addict, read this series!!!!!!

    Boystown Season 3 Book CoverSynopsis

    It’s a race against time to save those caught in the New Year’s Eve explosion.  The survivors may not be the lucky ones as they struggle to restore normalcy to their lives.  As the smoke clears, families are torn apart and lives are permanently altered.

    Even more dangerous than the bomb, the Mancini-Ciancio feud heats up as family members fight for control and survival.  At the same time, Jesse Morgan faces the fallout from his plan to break up his mother and her husband, Keith Colgan works to keep his past from destroying his future, Rachel Carson begins a plan that may have deadly consequences, and the search for the fourth Mancini brother reveals secrets that threaten to tear relationships apart forever.

    It all culminates in a fabulous fundraiser like none that anyone in Boystown has ever experienced.

    Welcome home to BOYSTOWN!

    About the Author

    Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, Jake Biondi fell in love with “The Windy City” at an early age. He left the Chicago area for four years to attend the University of Notre Dame, from which he graduated with degrees in English and Business. He was awarded the university’s prestigious William Mitchell Award for Playwriting. Upon graduating from Notre Dame, Biondi returned to Chicago where he attended and graduated from the Loyola University Chicago School of Law. He has been living in Chicago’s Boystown neighborhood for over 20 years.

    While studying literature, Biondi became a huge fan of Charles Dickens whose novels were originally released in installments, each ending in a cliffhanger to keep readers coming back for more. Because of his love of those novels as well as television dramas such as Dynasty, Knots Landing, Dallas, and Revenge, Jake Biondi decided to create a serialized saga for contemporary audiences. Thus, the BOYSTOWN series was born.

    Biondi began BOYSTOWN in June of 2013 as an online story and intended to release one “episode” online per month, each ending in a cliffhanger. The story became so popular — and the online reading audience grew so quickly — that people from all over the country began to email him demanding to know what happened to their favorite characters and wanting the episodes to be released faster. They also had suggestions for future storylines. Excited by and grateful for his readers’ responses to BOYSTOWN, Biondi began to write and release installments more quickly.

    In November of 2013, Biondi moved BOYSTOWN offline and published the first ten installments in book form as BOYSTOWN Season One. The book became an international hit, with fans all over the globe clamoring for more. BOYSTOWN Season Two was published in July of 2014 and BOYSTOWN Season Three will be released on May 1, 2015.

    Because of the popularity of the book series, fans have suggested that BOYSTOWN be turned into a television series. Biondi recently completed the TV scripts for the first season of BOYSTOWN and hopes to bring the series to television in the very near future.
