Married for a Month by Cate Ashwood

****4 Stars****


I was a bit worried when I read the blurb.  Fake marriages are not really my thing, but once I started reading, I found myself completely sucked into this sweet “best friends to lovers” story.

It also helps that these men, don’t actually marry.

fake+it+till+you+make+it.gif (500×375):


Chase and Alec have been best friends for a very long time. Chase is known as being quite the player among his friends. Chase isn’t ready to settle down into some relationship. He thinks, that once people settle down or get married, everything will go to shit and life will be boring and sex will be non-excistent.

So he sticks to hook-ups.

That is until his friends bet him that he couldn’t stay married for a month, even if he wanted to. According to them, marriage is hard work, and Chase is not cut out for this. Chase, of course, can’t resist proving them wrong. And who would be a better candidate in this “fake” marriage, than his best friend Alec.

So he “fake” proposes right then and there.

Their friends have a little wedding ceremony for them.

The rules are: they have to live together for a month, sleep in the same bed, eat together and go on a date once a week. Sounds easy enough….what could possibly go wrong ??

Both men are lusting for one another, and why not just give in right…it’s just sex…

Hot sex, but still just friends having sex….

Until it’s not…..

tumblr_mr6rwoJBuM1qcffemo1_500.gif (500×227)


I really enjoyed this story. It was sweet, hot, funny at times and there wasn’t any angst….

Just two best friends falling in love with each other.

You would think, that with me being such an angst junkie, I would be bored, but I wasn’t…not at all. It was exactly what I needed right now. I will

I will definitely look into more books by this author.  🙂

Fast Connection (Cyberlove #2)

by Megan Erickson & Santino Hassell

*****5 Stars*****

6cad4-52bstar


This book was amazing, I loved every freaking page!

 photo tumblr_inline_nn4n3hXW2V1tnj84r_500_zpsr8sxqiej.jpg


We’ve met Dominic in book 1, in which he was a bit of an ass. He’s a bit cocky, that’s for sure, but an asshole….no way !! I loved the guy. Dominic has discovered his bi side in the army and he’s all for exploring it more fully now that he’s out.

This brings him to Grindr.

 photo grindr_zps1qc5uzqf.jpg

He makes himself a profile and starts looking for an easy lay…


Luke is a 39-year-old divorced father of two kids. He has always been bi and ever since his marriage ended, he’s been hooking up when the kids are with their mom. Because of a bad relationship in the past, he doesn’t do serious….only simple hook-ups, which he finds using Grindr. This is how he ends up fucking Dominic’s brains out…

Damn these two were hot together !!!

 photo interesting-sex-facts-horny-man-in-public-sexycrets_zps1396bivt.gif

Of course, he kicks Dominic out afterward, he doesn’t want his separate worlds mixing and he doesn’t do repeats.


But Dominic is not easy to forget. He’s hot and sweet and funny and he doesn’t take no for answer. He just keeps texting Luke on Grindr, where they start a sort of texting relationship and get to know each other better. I loved the texts. Dominic was hilarious and of course Luke can’t resist what Dominic is offering.

 photo grindr9_zpsfl8oyyv1.jpg


Eventually Luke starts to appreciate who Dominic is like a person, instead of just some fuck and these two become closer and closer.

 photo 4f27a8510058c6c9730bc9a279b06b4b_zps66uqejbo.jpg

But when they find out that they are more closely connected than they realized, shit turns very complicated. This is not good, especially for Luke, who really doesn’t like complications.


I loved this book and I adored Dominic. He is one of my all-time favorite characters.

He was cocky and sweet and funny and I really wanted him to have the world. I never expected that, what with him being an ass in book 1. We also get some snippets of Garrett and Kai. Also, I really appreciated the fact that Luke’s ex-wife was not some raving bitch. I really hope there will be another book because these are the shit !!  😀

 So 5 stars, of course.

Strong Signal (Cyberlove #1)

by Megan Erickson & Santino Hassell

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

imageedit_402_9293335776


Wow, this book was awesome !!

Two guys meet and connect while being miles and miles apart.

Garret is a gay soldier, currently deployed in Afghanistan and waiting for his tour to end.
Kai is a reclusive “gaymer”, who suffers from social anxiety and panic attacks. He doesn’t leave his apartment anymore and his only “real life” friend is the 17 years old kid, next door. All his other friends are virtual followers of his Twitch stream.


Garret is a closet nerd, who loves to play games on his laptop, such as Fallen World Online, which is what he does, to get through his time in Afghanistan. He’s all excited about playing….until he meets Kai, who kills Garret’s character on the spot and does a little victory dance afterward… :))

 photo _orc_male250x_zpspxg1acjm.gif


Garret is pissed and starts looking into Kai’s profile and looking him up on Google. This is how he stumbles onto Kai’s Twitch stream…..and other video’s of Kai 😉

The two connect and strike up an online friendship which turns into way more. Damn these two were hot on Skype, and Garrett has quite the dirty mouth on him !!

Goodreads | Watching and Wanting (Housemates, #4) by Jay Northcote — Reviews, Discussion, Bookclubs, Lists


Then the time comes for Garrett to finally come home and he can’t wait to meet Kai in real life. But Kai hasn’t told Garrett all about himself and his anxieties. So when Garrett shows up to surprise him…things don’t really go as planned.The question is…will these two be able to make it in real life and will Kai be able to overcome his problems.


I loved reading about the two of them. They were so cute together…and so so HOT !!

I have been struggling with anxiety myself for over 15 years, so I was so rooting for Kai…he deserved to be happy. He was truly an awesome character. Garrett had a heart of gold and never once judged Kai for being who and how he was.

I cant wait for the next book in this series...this was definitely a win for me !!

Distraction (Club Destiny #8) by Nicole Edwards

****4 Stars****

4-of-5-stars-300x110.jpg (300×110):


Everyone that knows me, also knows that I like doing shit ass backward. 🙃

0004253588_100.png (975×180):

So it shouldn’t be a surprise that I started this series with the last book. 😁


I didn’t matter, though, because this book can be read as a stand alone without getting lost. I have read many of Nicole Edwards’s books and the one thing I am always sure of even before I start reading is that it’s gonna be HOT as hell !! This book was no exception. Dylan was quite the dirty talker !!

ecb95543386455597dac01a5d9e27d29.jpg (564×565):

That, however, is not all that this book is about. This book carries a more emotional undertone than most of her other books.


Dylan has been mourning the loss of his wife for many years. He has been struggling with depression and trying to find peace of mind at the bottom of a bottle. He has been surrounded by darkness for a long time. That is until one fierce woman from his past shines a little light on him.

Sarah is fighting her own demons. Her husband committed suicide, leaving Sarah heartbroken and angry. One encounter with a man from her past gives her back some hope. One hot encounter against the wall doesn’t heal their broken souls, though.


Sarah realizes that she can’t heal Dylan and take away his pain. He has to want and do this by himself. So Sarah decides to work on herself instead…she has had enough and she doesn’t want to be lost anymore.

Fast forward 3 years and these two get another chance to be with each other.

tumblr_mrg1h1A8tt1s9nwdeo1_500.gif (500×250)tumblr_inline_nhloe248aO1r03pn2.gif (400×217)

This time they both had time to work on themselves and they are both a little less broken. They agree to fresh start, taking things day by day. This leads to some explosive hot scenes between the two of them and even a foursome !!


I really enjoyed this one, though I have to say that the MM and MMF books that Nicole Edwards has written are still my favorite. For those who want to know,..yes there is an MFMM scene, but there is no sexual interaction between men….

I was also very pleased with the fact that there is gonna be another spin-off, very curious to see where that’s gonna go.

Thick & Thin (THIRDS #8) by Charlie Cochet

Sequel to Smoke & Mirrors

****3.5 Stars****

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor 3,5 black stars


This novella starts right after the ending of book 7,”Smoke and Mirrors”. To me, it kind of felt like an epilogue of the last book. All the things that were left wide open, get wrapped up in this little installment.

We get to know more about the changes that Dex went through and what gonna happen now that Dex and Sloane have decided to join TIN. It also shows us how the team responds to all of these changes and to the news that Sloane and Dex are about to be married.

iqXC6aY.png (357×500):


This novella was informative and very sweet, to the point of even being a bit cheesy. Now there is nothing wrong with some cheesiness every now and then, but I have always enjoyed Sloane being a badass and he came off as a love-struck puppy in this book. I’m mostly ok with this because it’s an in-between novella, but I do hope we will get more of his old bad-assed self in the next books.

be-a-badass-gym-quote-mugs-drinkware-full-color-mug.jpg (300×300):


I’m also not sure about how I feel about Dex not being fully human anymore. I liked his character just fine the way he was…We will just have to see where this development will go.What I missed most though were the action and the fun. There wasn’t anything in this novella that made me laugh. Dex just wasn´t his funny self…

giphy.gif (500×371)

As an in-between novella, this was a nice read. I enjoyed it, just not as much as all the other books. I do hope we will get some more action and laughs and maybe Dekatria in the next books. I´m  very curious about Seb and Hudson´s relationship. I have always loved Hudson, so I can´t wait for their story !!

*****5 Stars*****


Wow…it seems that everything these authors write turns into gold !! I have loved every single book that I have read by these awesome ladies !!


Once I started this book, I could not put it down, so I read it in one sitting. I was sucked right into the story and the amazing characters. Just like all the other books I have read by these authors (Addicted / Calloway series) this book isn’t just about two people finding romance. It’s about family and all members of this amazing circus family play a very important part.

tumblr_n9jbaddtkN1tqyc86o1_500.gif (499×264)


This book took me on an amazing emotional rollercoaster and I got to experience so many emotions. I went from laughing to cursing to crying to swooning and I loved every single second of it.

feelings.gif (500×201)

Luka is part of the Kotova’s. A Russian/American family, that performs in various circus shows. Luka has been part of the circus since he was a little boy. He has a lot of personal issues he struggles with. When he is 14 years old he forms a very close bond with Baylee, who is also a teenage performer in the circus. She has her very own struggles, but together, they deal. Their bond is so incredibly strong, but it also leads them to their destruction.

791415.gif (500×282)

I have decided not to go into the plot much further than this. I think this book should be read without any major spoilers.


Luka was such an amazing man. I adored him right from the start. He had a very sweet, loving and caring personality. I think everyone deserves a Luka in their life. I also loved the bond between him and his siblings. Nik may have been their rock, but Luka was the glue holding them all together.Baylee was also an awesome heroine. I really think these two were absolutely perfect for one another.

They were real soulmates.

The Alpha King by Victoria Sue

****4 Stars****


I love shifter books, but I don’t read a lot of mpreg. This is because most of the ones I did read (or started), were a big disappointment to me.  This book, however, I really enjoyed. The world-building and character development were very nicely done. I also really liked this author writing style. And even though I like my smut, this book wasn’t one big sex fest, it had content and a great storyline. It did have knotting , though….just so you know.

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor knotting wolves


Luca is the Alpha-heir and he has reached the age (25) to choose his Omega. During the Choosing ceremony, he has to choose one of the Omega’s that are presented, to mate with. This will give him Alpha status and his powers. Problem is, that none of the Omega’s presented interest him. Like all werewolves, Luca is bi-sexual, but he prefers men. There are only two male Omega’s and they will probably be picked by the other Alpha’s. Doesn’t really matter anyway, because even the male Omega’s don’t hold his attention.

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor well this sucks + gif


Luca knows he has to pick one because if he doesn’t he won’t reach his Alpha status and he won’t be able to make the changes he desperately wants to make. Everything changes, though, when he catches the eyes of a human servant, who is about to be beaten. His whole world stops and he has only one thing on his mind….

I really loved Luca and Kit together, though I have to say, that Luca made some dumbass mistakes. I forgave him (after he groveled), because well….It’s not every day that you become an Alpha King. Thankfully we also have Kit and he was really an amazing character. He was so strong and so loving.


The mpreg part was done very nicely, it was weird….but in a good way. 😛


A lot of things happen in this story and I could say so much more….but I won’t. I think that if you enjoy a good shifter story and you don’t mind the mpreg, then you should just give it a go yourself. I myself would love another book about Sam and Asher, who were awesome side characters in this book !!

Also a big”thank you” to Susan, who always recs the best books to me.

The Last Thing He Needs, by J.H. Knight

****4 Stars****


I was a bit nervous about reading this book because the reviews were so mixed. But my good friend Karlijn said she really liked it and advised me to just give it a go, and since I always listen to my friends…that’s what I did. I’m really glad I listened because I loved it!

Tommy O’Shea is 22 years old and his life is so freaking hard. His father and step-mom are selfish druggies/addicts, who don’t give a shit about their kids. They disappear for long periods of time and when they do come back, they turn everything to shit.

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor it's a hard knock life + gif


So basically Tommy is raising his 7 siblings, who range from 0 to 17 old, by himself. He is trying his hardest to take care of his family and to provide for their needs so the kids won’t end up in the foster care system. The last time that happened was a disaster and Tommy has promised them he won’t let it happen again. He works his ass off trying to make ends meet, but it isn’t easy, even when the other kids try to help out where they can. Every day is a struggle.

Then there is Bobby. Bobby is a rookie cop who has been to the O’Shea house many times on disturbance calls. They know each other from high school, though they weren’t friends back then. Bobby is looking to change this however and he comes over to the house more and more. Slowly they start building a friendship, which eventually leads to so much more.

But Tommy doesn’t let people in very easily. He has some trust issues and he thinks of himself as less worthy. Thankfully, Bobby is not one to just give up and he has no problems fighting for Tommy and the kids.

Tommy and Bobby’s relationship was not an easy one, but it was a beautiful one. These two men were really amazing together.Afbeeldingsresultaat voor gay men kissing + gif


I also want to give some extra credit to  Bobby’s mom. She was a wonderful character !!

“The bitch,” Bobby said sarcastically. “The nerve of the woman. Going in and bringing cake—there was cake, right?” When Tommy nodded, Bobby went on. “That is some messed-up devil-woman shit. Thinking she can slide in under your radar like that! That’s right out of Grimm’s Fairy Tales. Maybe she’ll try to cook them next!”

The Mutt: An Order Short Story by Kasia Bacon

****4 Stars****


This sexy short story introduces us to the world of elves….and let’s be honest, who doesn’t like elves ?? This little gem is an introduction to new series this author is writing. “The Elven Vice” will be the first novel about Evryn and Lochan.

The books open in some kind of training facility for elves. It is entirely written in the voice of Evryn, the only fair-haired Dark Elf in the Highlands. He is also an archer, so guess who he made me think of 😉

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor legolas + gif

A new elf has just arrived at the training facility..and not just any kind of elf. Lochan is a half-breed, part human and part elvish. In other words…a Mutt.


Evryn is smitten right from the start and he has only one thing on his mind….making Lochan his.

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor I want you so much

Evryn tries his very best to get Lochan’s attention….I liked Evryn’s character, he was very bold 😛


Lochan didn’t stand a chance at rejecting him 😉

I really liked the writing style of this author and as far as introductions go, this was pretty good. I was actually very surprised by the steam level and the humor in this book….and hey…there is even some Elvish !!!!

Masturbar tu-ehr uncäil assi iré

Have you just told him to go wank his uncle’s donkey ?

I’m very curious to see where this story is gonna go, it definitely captured my attention. It was very short though and it felt unfinished (which I guess it is because it’s an introduction).So as far character- and worldbuilding, there wasn’t much. Hopefully, this will be different with the full novel.

I love elves, so I will surely give the upcoming novel a try.

Grounding Griffin (Made Marian #4) by Lucy Lennox

****3.5 Stars****


So far, I have read all the books in this series and I have enjoyed them all. Some I liked more than others, though. I’m having a bit of trouble rating this one, though because even though I enjoyed reading it, there were also some things that annoyed me.


Griffin in one of the adopted brothers of the “Marian” family. He was kicked out by his parents when he came out to them and has lived on the street for some time. After being beaten up and found by a cop, he is giving the choice to go to a youth center or into the foster care system. Griffin decides to go the youth center, which eventually leads to him being adopted by the Marians. Griffin still struggles with a lot of issues due to his past.


Now he’s a freelance writer, who mostly writes funny pieces. Such as.. “how do gay men respond to cheesy pickup lines and pet names”. This is how he meets Sam.

Sam is a bartender at the bar Griffin uses to test his pick-up lines and pet names. He used to be a chef, at a restaurant, but one awful review from a food critic ruined his dreams.Sam feels an incredible pull towards Griffin, who he’s nicknamed “Fox”, but he just doesn’t understand, why the guy goes home with a different man every time, even when he seems uncomfortable.


Afbeeldingsresultaat voor i was aroused + gifGriffin feels the same pull towards Sam and thankfully things get cleared up pretty quickly. Which leads to some very hot scenes. If there is one thing about this book that I have absolutely no complaints about, it’s the steam. It very very nice 😉

“Do you want me to bend you over my bed and fuck your ass, or do you want me to lie you down on your back and go slow and sweet? Because I want to do both. I want to take turns fucking you and loving you all night until neither one of us can move again”


These guys become closer and closer but even after months of fucking and spending all their time together, Griffin still has problems when people refer to them as “boyfriends”. This is when I started to get a bit annoyed. I could understand where his issues were coming from, but he just kept pulling the same shit over and over again, which made me lose patience with him. The fact that Sam was always giving into him and his issues, didn’t make me happy either.

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor give me patience + gif


So, that’s what it comes down to. I liked the book, but Griffin annoyed the ever loving shit out of me. Still, there were times, when I also loved the ever loving shit out of him. Confused much….The parts with the family had me cracking up. I loved Granny, Irene, and aunt Tilly !!

“Do you have any idea how filthy that girl’s mouth is when she really gets going. If we miss Ginger’s delivery because you had to clean man juice off your boyfriend, then I’m gonna be pissed.”

I’m gonna go with 3,5 stars for this one and you can bet your ass I’m gonna read the next book because to me this series is very entertaining.

Atonement (The Protectors #6) by Sloane Kennedy

  *****5 Stars*****

  Afbeeldingsresultaat voor 5 red stars

This is book 6 in the in the “Protectors” series and just like all the other ones…

 I absolutely loved this one. 

This time it is Dante and Magnus’ turn.


   


We have been introduced to Magnus in the previous books. He is a 41 year old (former) Texas Ranger, who is still very much hurting over the loss of his daughter. His daughter disappeared when she was 17 years old after she ran away from home. She took her, then 3-year-old, son with her. After searching and hoping for 2 years, it has now become very clear, that even though his grandson Matty was saved by Tate, his daughter did not survive. Magnus is really struggling with the fact, that he will never know what exactly happened to his daughter, but thankfully he has the love and support of a whole new family.


Dante was introduced in the previous book as a security guard for young Matty. Dante has a horrible past of his own and he tends to burry his past, by acting like a man-slut. When Dante is first introduced to Matty’s grandfather Magnus, he is shocked by the attraction he feels for the man. He does his best to flirt with him and to try to get into man’s pants. He doesn’t care if Magnus is gay or straight or bi…he just wants in there.


That’s not how Magnus feels, though. He may be a bit surprised by the fact that he feels some attraction for Dante, but he is mostly annoyed with Dante’s slutty ways. Especially after catching the man in the act a few times.

When Magnus has to go home to Texas to testify in a high-profile case and Dante is ordered as his security detail, things between the two of them start to change. Magnus becomes more and more aware of his growing feelings for Dante and Dante himself starts to see different sides of Magnus. The sexual tension between them was delicious and when these two came together, they were wicked hot !!!


The sex scenes between this men were the best I have read in a Sloane Kennedy book so far…and that’s saying something, because Sloane sure knows how to write a good sex scene !!Even though Magnus has always figured himself straight, he doesn’t hold back when he wants something and he surely wants Dante.


Things aren’t easy, though. Dante struggles with a lot of self-loathing, so Magnus really has to work to earn his trust.When Dante receives a phone-call that will change his life…Magnus is right there with him, for him to lean on….just like he promised.

“I just…I wanted you to see that I was more than that. That I could be someone you could…”....“Someone you could lean on when you were tired of standing on your own.” 

Magnus and Dante’s story was at time heartbreaking, but it was also very sweet, fun and hot. They showed that together, they were a force to be reckoned with.

“Can we be done with this talking shit and get to the stuff I’m going to kick ass at in this relationship”

Wow…Ever since reading the previous books in this series (which I loved), I have been looking forwards to Arrow’s story

. I figured I was gonna like his book because I have liked Arrow ever since he was introduced in the previous books. What I had not expected was for this book to become my absolute favorite of the series !!


I do however want to start with a little warning that this book does not pull any punches. There might be some triggers for some people, so be aware. I started crying within the first couple of pages. Damn this book punched me in the gut !!

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor punch in the gut + gif


If you’ve read any of the previous books, then you already know that Arrow has experienced some difficult times in his life.

 I was very curious about what exactly happened to Arrow. I don’t want to spoiler the story, but I will say that it was awful and that it broke my little black heart…Needless to say, Arrow’s heart and everything about him, was also broken. It has shattered him into a million tiny pieces…

But Arrow does not give up.

With the help of his brother Jace (book 3), his new sister Joey and his friends Drew and Trent, he starts building a new future…racing cars.This racing career also brings something else to his life, something he didn’t think he would ever have.

Hopper is broken in his own way. Once upon a time, he had it all, but one split second took everything away. Now Hopper lives his life in the shadows…

That is until he sets his eyes on Arrow...

“I wasn’t expecting you”……”It’s okay…..I wasn’t expecting you either”

Slowly, these two men, start healing each other’s broken pieces.It isn’t always easy, but it sure is beautiful.


I absolutely loved Arrow and Hopper together.

The only complaint I have is that I wish there would have been a bit more dialogue, instead of thoughts…

I don’t know if there’s gonna be another book in this series. I really hope so, I’m gonna keep a close eye on this author, because so far, I have loved every book in this series. Even book 3, which was an M/F book, and we all know how difficult I can be about those !!

 

Highly Recommend!
