~Excerpt~

“SO YOU’RE GONNA want to keep your toes on the tail of the board and grip the rails under your chest like this,” Dylan said as he lay across the surfboard to show me the basics of his favorite pastime on the secluded stretch of beach. Not that I was paying much attention to the words coming out of his mouth. I was much more interested in the way his muscles flexed beneath the skintight Body Glove wetsuit he wore.

As he pushed himself up into a standing position, my gaze traveled down the broad expanse of his back and down to his ass.

“See how my dominant leg is in the back, and— Ace? Are you paying attention?”

“Mhmm,” I murmured as I bit down on my lower lip and continued my perusal.

Dylan turned to face me, and his hands went to his hips. “Oh yeah?” he said when I looked up. “What did I just say?”

Taking a step forward, I gave him a cocky grin and tugged him off the surfboard and onto the sand until he was flush against me. Then I let my hands roam down over the firm, round muscles of his ass. “Something about being a dominant in the back,” I said, nipping at his lobe. “So why don’t you turn around?”

A groan of frustration left Dylan then, but his head tilted to the side to let my lips trail down his neck. “You’re not gonna feel so cocky when you can’t get up on that board.”

“Oh, I can always get it up, don’t you worry.”

His hands covered my chest and he gently pushed me away. “How about you prove it, hotshot?” Then he pointed to the longboard I’d rented for the weekend. “Why don’t you show me how it’s done.”

“It’s more fun watching you.”

“Ace. Get your ass on that board.”

I squinted in the sun and grinned. “You gonna be this bossy all weekend?”

“If you’re lucky.”

I took a step back so I was by my board, and crossed my arms. I had my wetsuit on, but it was still undone and hanging around my hips while Dylan walked me through this process step by step, and my move had the desired effect. He rubbed a hand up the back of his neck and over his hair, leaving it tousled and oh so sexy.

“What?” I asked. “I’m back on my side of the board.”

“Don’t try and act innocent with me, Locke. I’m trying to teach you a new skill. One that will keep you from hurting yourself. And you’re standing there being all…” He waved his hand up and down, gesturing to my exposed upper body.

“Yes?”

“See. Stop it,” he said, and then pointed to the board. “And zip up that damn wetsuit so I can’t see all your muscles.”

I arched a brow as I moved to slip my arms through the stretchy synthetic material, and when I reached for the zipper and pulled it up to the base of my skull, Dylan groaned.

“Okay, that’s almost worse than no wetsuit.”

“I’m sorry. You’re not checking me out, are you? Because you’re supposed to be paying close attention to teaching me something that could save my life,” I said as I turned around and made a show of bending down to get on the board.

“You having fun right now?” Dylan asked.

“Maybe a little.”

“Yeah, well, let’s hope that holds true when the wave dumps you on your ass.”

I let out a sigh and gripped the board just as he’d told me, because the truth of the matter was, I had never surfed a day in my life. I grew up in Chicago, for God’s sake. But Dylan, with his sun-kissed hair, long, lean body, and eyes the color of the sea, looked right at home with the sun shining down on him as his feet sank into the sand by my head.

“Let’s try this a couple more times here on land, and then we’ll get you out in the water. We won’t have you trying to stand up just yet. But if you can get the hang of at least catching the wave into the shore, we might be able to progress.” He crouched down and said, “Remember, toes on the tail of the board and grip the rails, and then push up.”

As I did as he instructed, I paused in the push-up position and was rewarded when he leaned in and took my lips in a sweet kiss.

“Again,” he whispered, and I moved back down to repeat the move, and this time when I paused, I was rewarded with a deeper kiss. When he pulled away too soon, I grumbled and he laughed, straightening. “Any more of that and we won’t make it into the water. On your feet, Locke, it’s time to hit the waves.”

When the last thing you want, is everything you need….

Seb Calloway isn’t interested in shifters. After his best friend bonded with one, he avoids getting involved with them—no matter how hot they are—to prevent the same thing from happening to him. Why take the risk for a few hours of fun?

Tim Walters is the pack doctor. Considered to be mild-mannered and non-threatening by pack standards, he prides himself on being able to stay calm and maintain his control at all times. Desperate for a bond of his own, he knows his interest in Seb is an exercise in futility, but he can’t seem to help himself.

When news emerges that threatens Seb’s safety, he and Tim need to fake a relationship to keep Seb safe. Despite Seb’s refusal to be anything other than friends with benefits, what starts out as pretend, quickly becomes more—for Tim at least. If Tim doesn’t want to end up heartbroken, he needs to prove to Seb that loving a shifter doesn’t mean losing himself.

The last thing Linton needs when he arrives home after three months in the States is to find his beautiful flat is a squat, complete with his younger brother Dirk, who’s lying in Linton’s bed with a couple who’ve paid him for sex. Dirk isn’t even supposed to have a key. But after Linton throws Dirk out, life slams in hard and if his brother is to have any hope of a future, Linton has to play dirty. Or at least pretend to. What he hasn’t factored in is having to play the game to the bitter end.


Film star Thorne Morrisey has everything. Good looks, charm, seductive magnetism and a voice that could charm a snake from its basket. He can also be a real shit and yet people still love him – though he’d rather not have the love of his ex. Owen’s a suicidal wreck after Thorne dumped him in a very public and humiliating way and Owen’s wealthy brother has his own reasons for wanting revenge on Thorne. Max’s weapon of choice is his employee, Linton.

Linton and Thorne are on a collision course and in for the game of their lives. But who’s playing who?

He looked anywhere but at Tim, embarrassment clear in his expression. Before the moment could get awkward—and giving Seb no chance to object—Tim scooped him up, bridal style, and started down the stairs.

Letting out a startled laugh, Seb clung tight to his crutch so it didn’t slip out of his hands. “Twice in one weekend. You’re going to give me a complex.”

Tim bit the inside of his cheek. If Seb knew how much he liked being able to take care of him, how much his wolf liked it, he wouldn’t find it half as amusing or embarrassing. Clearing his throat, he hitched him a little higher, then started down the stairs. “It’s just quicker this way, and I don’t want to make you late for your appointment. We’re running a little behind.”

“Fair enough.”

Not daring to meet Seb’s eyes—their faces were so close together, he didn’t like his chances of not doing something stupid like kissing him—Tim quickly made his way down the steps.

I really enjoyed book 1 in this series, so I was very excited about this one.

Even though this book is focussed on a different couple,  I would still suggest reading book 1 first. Things can get quite confusing if you don’t, since part of the storyline from the previous book, continues in this book.

This time we get Seb and Tim’s story.

Seb is Jared’s (book 1) best friend. If you’ve read book 1 then you know that Jared, even though mated with a shifter doesn’t have the highest opinion about shifters in general. Seb however never had any problems with shifters. He likes them well enough and he even had a couple of hook-ups with some.

Cute-Short-Hairstyles-For-Men.jpg (500×500):


What he doesn’t want is to start a relationship with any of them, though. He has seen what a bite of a shifter can do…it certainly changed his best friend. He wants to be with someone who loves him because of him and vice versa, not because of some kind of magical bond that forms after a bite. Seeing his friend going from hating shifters to loving one, all in the blink of an eye, because of one bite, doesn’t appeal to Seb at all. So even though he is extremely attracted to Tim, the pack doctor, he is keeping his distance….

whoamI.gif (500×260)


Tim is the pack doctor.

He is considered the calm and collected one of the pack. Now that doesn’t mean he won’t wolf out when necessary. It just means that Tim has a very strong hold on his wolf and an awesome sense of control. And resisting Seb is taking every ounce of that control.

boy-cap-cute-green-eyes-Favim.com-1094579.jpg (495×750):

Ever since seeing Jared and Nathan being so happy together, Tim has wanted that special someone to form a magical bond with, for himself. He would love to be with Seb, but Seb has made it perfectly clear that he isn’t interested in any kind of bonding. So he tries to control himself and keep his distance.

But what will happen when treats from the past resurface and these two men are forced to spend a lot of time together.

Will they be able to control their attraction….

tumblr_nu7hkrCoPu1tq4of6o1_500.gif (500×206)


Just like the previous book, I really enjoyed this one.

These books are different than any other shifter books I have read. For one, the shifters don’t fully shift unless it’s a full moon, they only half shift…claws and teeth. So just like in the previous book, don’t go expecting a lot of wolves running around. Also..the biting off a human has to be requested. It is illegal, to just go around biting humans. A bite also doesn’t guarantee that the human will change into a shifter….

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor no biting + gif

So, to fully understand this book, I strongly suggest you, read book 1 first.The steam in this one was pretty hot….These shifters sure know what they like…

…and they don’t mind getting down and dirty …

I can’t wait to see what’s next.

I really liked Alec, so I am can only hope that he and Mark will be getting their story.

It was a forgotten place. A place with a dark history. Thousands of men had passed through its doors during the first three quarters of the twentieth century. Most had served their time and moved on. But not all had been so fortunate.
As the years ticked by and the seasons changed, the old prison moldered away, but one thing stayed constant.
In the deepest part of the night, on the darkest nights of the year—particularly in spring, if you were sensitive enough to hear them—sounds could be heard coming from the deepest bowels of the lowest level basement. All was not right. Something was waiting, alone in the darkness.
Waiting for someone to finally hear its sorrow.
When Petty Officer Ben Pierce decided to explore the long abandoned Naval Prison next to his decrepit barracks, the last thing he expected to find was a mystery.
Something is in the Prison. Or is it someone? Where is the weeping coming from? When Ben follows the sounds to an ice cold, but empty, cell, he isn’t sticking around to find out any more details.
But now he can’t get it out of his mind.

My Name was Karl by Daniel Mitton

****3.5 Stars****

3-5-star-rating-hi.png (600×108):


I was a bit worried about this one since I don’t read historical and I don’t enjoy reading about WWI or WWII. This little story wasn’t like anything I expected, though…

First things first. If you intend to read this one, make sure you suspend your disbeliefs. I am very open-minded, but even I had to have a little talk with myself…

66135239.jpg (500×378):


This book starts out pretty harsh.

It starts in the year 1945 when Karl is a radio operator on a German U-boat. They get captured by the Americans and Karl is immediately picked out of a line-up by one of the guards. This is the start of some horrifying events, which leave Karl, to die, 3 days after being captured…alone and naked in a solitary prison cell.

My heart broke for Karl and even though I normally don’t read historical or war-stories, I found myself intrigued by everything that was going on. It was a very emotional part and I really found myself choking up.

giphy.gif (500×255)


Fast forward to the year 2015 and we get to meet Ben.

Ben works for the American Navy and he is being housed in a building right next to the old prison, where Karl died. A night of wandering through the old prison leads him to certain prison cell…

…a prison cell that seems to be occupied because someone is crying on the inside….

tumblr_o9ekcesNqq1sk0xezo1_500.gif (499×374)


Ben beliefs in ghosts, especially after meeting Karl. He’s not scared, though. Karl is a sweet man around his age and if things were different, he could even see himself with someone like Karl.

These two became fast friends while Karl was tagging along with Ben. That friendship soon turned into something more. I actually started to get worried, because I really couldn’t see how this could end in a HEA.

This is the part where I really had to suspend my beliefs….

6051fe5fae90d368eb75da2b743dbb5c.jpg (736×1104):

Unbelievable as this little story was, I did really enjoy it.

After a while, I figured…what the hell and just went with it.
