~Blurb~

 

Imagines is the Latin plural for Imago, and the only thing better than one metamorphosis, is two.

Jack Brighton and Lawson Gale have been together for six months and are very much in love. Lawson’s work ensuring the survival of the Tillman Copper is demanding as ever, and Jack’s work with the regeneration of the bushfire-ravaged national park is just as hectic.

When Jack suggests they take a short trip, Lawson agrees. But then he is offered a two-week research position in tropical Queensland to help determine why the Ulysses butterfly is on the decline. Figuring they could combine work and pleasure, Jack and Lawson go on their first vacation together.

Working alongside renowned professor Piers Bonfils isn’t easy. But personal and professional differences aside, Lawson is offered a more permanent role in Queensland. Torn between his new life in Tasmania with Jack and a dying species of butterfly he feels compelled to save, Lawson has to decide where his fate lies.

But fate changes the rules. On a research expedition into the depths of the rainforest, suddenly it’s not only the butterflies’ existence that hangs in the balance

A butterfly’s life cycle never changes. From larvae to imago, their course is plotted by design. Jack and Lawson need to determine where they stand, if they live through it. Because the only thing more incredible than one imago is two.

~Blurb~

I lived in the dark for three years. My whole world revolved around the whims and happiness of three men. It was just a trip into the forbidden. A way out of a bad situation and forward into nothingness.

Quin, with his easy smile and charming good looks. He was always there for me… Until he wasn’t.

Smith, and his dispassionate attention. He was never there for me and he never regretted it.

Bric, the one who listened, but only to himself. Self-absorbed, self-obsessed, and self-serving. He was never the one I wanted.

And now he might be the only one I have left.

It was good while it lasted, I guess. But it could’ve been so much more. It could’ve been so much better.

And that’s why I’m turning back.

~EXCERPT~

“So then what happened?” Bric asks.

We’re sitting at our booth in the White Room. Before I left, I’d sit in the middle of the bench, Quin would sit across from me in a chair, and Bric would sit to my left.

Bric is still to my left, Quin isn’t here yet—if he’s coming at all—and Adley is in her baby seat on my right.

Everything is familiar—but off.

“Then he went to bed.”

“What’d you do?”

“I sat there on the couch for a while trying to figure out what happened.”

“What did you come up with?” Bric is looking very intently at me. Like everything I’m saying is critically important.

“He hate-fucked me, that’s what I came up with, Bric!”

“Rochelle,” Bric says, throwing me one of those Don’t overreact looks.

“I’m serious. There’s no other explanation for it. He hate-fucked me. Revenge fuck. Whatever you want to call it. That’s what happened last night.” I sigh and try not to feel depressed and sad. “And then this morning I got out of bed to go check on Adley when she woke up, and when I came back, he was gone.”

“Gone?” Bric asks. “Where’d he go?”

“Just left,” I say. “I texted him. Asked if he’d be here for breakfast. And he never texted back.”

“He’s just mad,” Bric says.

“I know.” I huff. “He told me that last night too. He spelled it out very clearly. He was worried about me. Sad about my leaving. But then when I came back—”

“Now he’s just angry.”

“Right.”

“It’s a pretty typical reaction,” Bric says.

“I realize that. Which is why I’m not going to make a big deal about this. But I don’t know if this is going to work, Bric. He might not want me. He might just want to hurt me. Exactly the way I hurt him.”

“No,” Bric says, like I’m being ridiculous.

“I’m not being ridiculous,” I say. “Maybe he’s not out to hurt me. But he’s doing something, Bric. He’s playing a game, but I’m pretty sure we’re not all playing the same game.”

“He’s mad, Rochelle. You have to expect that. He’s gonna come around.”

“What does that mean? Come around? Do you really think he’s gonna fall back in love with me the way he was? Because I don’t. I think he’s here for us. Me, you, and him together. And that’s all.”

Bric rubs his hand across his scratchy jaw as he thinks this over, so I check on Adley. She fell asleep in the car on the way over here and hasn’t woken up yet. Bric is still thinking.

“I don’t want an us, Bric.”

He looks me in the eye and says. “I do. But I get it. And I’m fine with you and Quin getting your little happy ending. But I’m telling you, Rochelle, he’s just trying to protect himself right now and the best way to let him work that out and ensure you two get back together is to have an us.”

“He said he doesn’t trust me.”

“He has a good reason,” Bric counters.

“I know that,” I say, starting to get angry. “I understand that. But the whole point of us doing this… game… or whatever it is, was so that you can help me figure this out. I want him, Bric. You’re supposed to help me.”

But as soon as the words come out of my mouth I realize how stupid that is. I trust no one and I have very good reasons for that. I’ve learned over the course of my life that people are selfish. People are out for themselves. People are liars. I have a lot of experience in being lied to.

Elias Bricman definitely fits all those assumptions I have about people. And then some.

~Synopsis~

NB: This is a previously released title. Now in its third edition, it features a new short epilogue and has been re-edited with new cover art.

Actor Jacob Riley is a typical former Hollywood child star with serious issues. He has already done prison time, and at the age of twenty-six has been arrested for possession yet again.

Quietly working to make the world a better place, Ethan Myers is the owner and manager of Macs, an education center for local, low-income families. Losing his partner to cancer has left him lost and alone, and he buries himself in his work in the hope it will mend his broken heart.

Sparks fly when Jacob is forced to complete his community service at Macs. Despite their best efforts to resist, the two men find themselves growing closer as a spoiled Jacob gains his first glimpse at the real world.

As Jacob’s time at Macs comes to an end is there any chance their fragile relationship can survive?

This was a nice enjoyable read.

Jacob is a famous actor and (recovering) addict. He has been sentenced to 4 months of community service at Mac’s, because of possession. I didn’t really like Jacob in the beginning.

He was a bit of an entitled asshole.

Mac’s is run/owned by Ethan. He threw his heart and soul into it, after the loss of his lover. Ethan was a good guy, he was considerate and sweet…a total opposite of Jacob.

These two don’t start off on the right foot, but as we all know….

…hate can quickly turn to lust…

This also means that Jacob’s behavior does an 180. That doesn’t mean everything is all sunshine and roses though.

BwY50h2.jpg (500×750):

They have plenty of things to work out.


The background story involves the other residents and family members.

Even though I enjoyed reading this one, there were a few things that bothered me, which are Jacobs fast 180 and the misunderstanding at the end.

This is personal though…misunderstandings and miscommunication…

“Ever f*cked a pirate?”

He was insufferable, deeply scarred, and frustratingly gorgeous, and he was the man who was blackmailing her into tying the knot.

Cora Harris has never had luck with men. Being the daughter of a ruthless crime boss tended to put a dent in any relationship, but she never imagined she’d get kidnapped in the dead of night by pirates. She sure as hell never imagined the asshole with the smoldering gaze would threaten everyone she loved if she didn’t become his wife.

Only Captain James Crow wants more than just her hand in holy matrimony. He wants her absolute submission. He wants her pain. He wants the one thing she’s never given anyone — her heart. But is he willing to give the daughter of his sworn enemy his in return?

“How easily his eyes could make her forget that he was her captor. Not her savior.”

But when the truth is revealed, can James keep Cora from the true evil in their midst? Can he win before his revenge cost him more than just his life? And how far will Cora go to free herself of the man who enchanted her, seduced her, and when she submitted, imprisoned her?

Vengeance and betrayal will either bring two warring families together or obliterate them all.

****4 Stars****

4st


This is my first read from this author, and my first read with and about the inside of the Mafia. Thru all the book I keep forgetting that the action of the book was in our days. I kept going back in my mind like it was a historical romance.

When I read the blurb and I saw that the book it is about a pirate, I said: “woooow…. hell yeah I’m definitely in”.

“WooooW…. hell yeah, I’m definitely in!” 😀

Imagini pentru GIF HELL YEAH

Although the book is about a pirate, most of the action happens on the land.


So…we have Cora, a daughter’s mob mafia, the most powerful man of all.

Imagini pentru brunette with hazel eyes

Cora is a beautiful brunette with hazel eyes. She loves her parent’s very much and she knows very well what business they run. She doesn’t have a boyfriend in a long time, because of her father power. Every one of them got scared or got removed. She is very stubborn, funny and sometimes very naive.

And when it comes to defending what is hers…

…man….she can become a really Hot Sexy Badass Woman.

gunstocks Say that again Hypercrite!:

Her father runs and controls everything.

When you are the Boss of the Mafia, you expect to be killed, or your family to be in danger because you make harm to a lot of people and you gain a lot of enemies. So Cora is kidnapped, by an enemy of her father, a pirate, but actually, this pirate is made by another enemy to kidnap Cora and wants to use her to get to her father. But plans change.


James is a hot sexy specimen of a man, with dark hair and eyes.

Designer beard:

He is very determined, smart, arrogant,  protective, dominant and very persistent in what he want’s and how he want’s it.James loves to be a pirate, loves his ship and his crew…and especially loves to live on the sea/ocean.

His life was ruined by one mob mafia…

…and he seeks revenge with all his soul and his heart.

But his time has come. Now he has his chance. He changes the plans, or so he thinks he can change them. But actually the plans change themselves and he doesn’t even know.


What I liked about the book was that it had a Romanian character, Nicholas. Yeyyyy.

The story was really good and the sex scenes were really hot.

~Blurb~

Starting over isn’t easy, but Ben is ready to live his life as the man he was always meant to be.

Ben is transgender and back at university after hormone treatment and chest surgery. His new housemates have no idea about his history and Ben would prefer to keep it that way. He’s starting from scratch and his life is finally on track, except in the romance department. The idea of dating guys as a guy is exhilarating but terrifying, because if Ben wants a boyfriend he’ll have to disclose his secret.

Sid is drawn to Ben from the moment they meet. He normally gets what he wants—in the short term at least. Ben’s guarded at first, and Sid’s not used to guys rejecting his advances. He eventually charms his way through Ben’s defences and helps Ben on his journey of sexual awakening.

It doesn’t matter to Sid that Ben is trans. He’s attracted to the whole person, and isn’t worried about what is—or isn’t—in Ben’s pants. They’re good together, and both of them are falling hard and fast, but Ben’s insecurities keep getting in the way. If Sid can convince Ben he’s committed, will Ben finally be able to put his heart on the line?

Although this book is part of the Housemates series, it has new main characters, a satisfying happy ending, and can be read as a standalone.

Starting from Scratch (Housemates #5) by Jay Northcote

*****4.5 Stars*****

4.5hghg


Another great book in this super sexy series but can be read as a standalone.

Ben and Sid were briefly introduced in the previous book.

Ben is transgender and has gone through his transition.He returns back to the shared house in the New Year determined to try and be more outgoing and interact with people more.


Sid is Jude’s ex-hook up from the previous book.He’s just recently broken up with someone so when he gets an invitation from Jude inviting him on a night out with his friends he thinks why not?


Sid and Ben are drawn to each other, not least because of everyone else in part of a couple.They get on well and Sid finds himself getting more and more attracted to Ben, so much so that he doesn’t hold back.

“So, what do you say? Want to try having sober sex with me?”

Poor Ben is like a rabbit in the headlights…he’s still trying to adjust emotionally and still has insecurities about his body.

And my heart ached for Ben, at times, as he battled his inner demons.

However, they start to text each other and develop a friendship but when feelings get involved Ben knows he has to tell Sid about being trans.I loved how Sid reacted….all he wanted was to make Ben at ease.

I’ve read a few transgender books but this is the first one where I came to fully appreciate that people have choices, things aren’t straight forward and that Ben’s decision regarding his own personal transition was right for him.

The relationship between them developed at exactly the right pace and…

…they are just perfect together.


I just have to mention a new character that was introduced.Johnny…how I loved that dirty boy, with his messy blonde hair and love of eyeliner.I’m keeping everything crossed that it’s his story next.

Definitely a recommended read!
