Sometimes, to get what you want in business or in love, you have to get your hands dirty. Luckily for Finn and Justin, dirty comes naturally.
Finn Drummond is the baby in a family of sharks—which means he’s worked twice as hard to make a name for himself. After learning the tricks of the trade from his brothers, Finn’s just as ruthless and dominant. Out in the field, his appetites are legendary: for success, for money, for women and men. But when supplies from Drummond Charities go missing, Finn has to partner up with the smoldering ex–Army grunt who’s always challenging his authority—or giving him mixed signals.
Justin Miller wanted his attraction to Finn to be mutual, but the cocky brat always had a girlfriend. Who could blame Justin for trying to move on? Despite their history, they’ve got to work together to figure out who’s been derailing their humanitarian work. But after Justin and Finn are thrown together against gunrunners and kidnappers, their simmering chemistry turns explosive. Turns out, Finn knows how to handle himself in a crisis—and in the sack. Justin only hopes that hot sex is enough to persuade this spoiled pretty boy to do the right thing.

When I read book 1 in this series, one person stood out for me and that was Finn, so I was really looking forward to reading his story. I was very excited jumping into this one but when I did…I got so confused…

I didn’t understand what was going on, and it felt like I was thrown into the middle of a story and missed the beginning…Maybe I should have read book 1 again before starting this one, but since it hasn’t been that long, I didn’t figure it necessary…my bad. So it took me some time to really get into this one…

The reason I rarely go home is three simple words: I’m a liar. 
When the pressure to marry my childhood sweetheart became too much, I told her I was gay and then fled to New York like my ass was on fire. 
Now, five years later and after a drunken encounter, I find myself invited to her wedding. And I have to bring my boyfriend—the boyfriend who doesn’t exist because I’m straight. 
At least, I think I am. Meeting the guy I’m bribing to be my boyfriend for the weekend makes me question everything about myself. 
When my sister asks me to pretend to be some straight guy’s boyfriend, my automatic response is to say no. It’s because of guys like him people don’t believe me when I tell them I’m gay. 
But Maddox has something I need. 
After an injury that cost me my baseball career, I’m trying to leave my playing days behind and focus on being the best sports agent I can be. Forty-eight hours with my sister’s best friend in exchange for a meeting with a possible client. I can do this. 
I just wish he wasn’t so hot. Or that he didn’t kiss like he means it. 
Wait … why is the straight guy kissing me? 
–Fake Out is a full-length MM novel with no cliffhanger.–

This is a new to me author, and the blurb had me very curious…This story was pretty much the world upside down for me…


When Maddox felt like he couldn’t break up with his high school girlfriend, he told her he was gay just so he could escape her…and she wouldn’t be too broken-hearted.


Things pretty much blow up in his face though, when his ex-girlfriend informs the whole town of his gayness before he even gets home. This includes his parents, who are really supportive of him being gay.

Office intrigue takes on a whole new meaning in this story of love, friendship, and the secrets hiding behind boardroom doors…
The Company has a rule about falling in love on the job.
I’ve never been one for rules. But I need this one. I need this rule to remind me why I can’t be with Dani Wallace.
I need this smart little foul-mouthed fighter by my side more than I need her in my bed. I need her to close this massive deal. She thinks it holds the key to her escape from cubicle hell and another shot at the life she always wanted. 
But there is more riding on our success than she can possibly ever know. So I’ll keep my hands to myself and my secrets safe for one more day.
But now I can’t stop wondering what my best friend has on beneath her conservative suit. I can’t stop imagining the things that sharp mouth of hers could do to me if I leaned back in my chair and unzipped my pants. And I can’t stop pushing our flirting too far.
I’m trying to remember the rule. But some rules are made to be broken.

This book was so much, it was awesome and so unexpected, for many reasons. I really like it and enjoyed reading it.

Dani is a shell, a shadow of the woman she once was. Once, she was a happy woman, she loved and she was loved, she created her job/company, (it was her baby), she had friends and she loved her life, only now…she hated everything.

Nina Dobrev, I love her she is perfect and flawless  she knows how to act,  playing like 3 different characters in different personalities in The Vampire Diaries. By the way, my favorite TV show.

Ryan isn’t looking for a relationship with a guy–and Johnny isn’t looking for a relationship at all.
Ryan’s always been attracted to tall, leggy blondes–normally of the female variety. When Johnny catches his eye at a party, Ryan’s interest is piqued even though he’s never been with a guy before. The attraction is mutual, and the amazing night that follows opens Ryan’s eyes to his bisexuality.
Experience has taught Johnny that love hurts. Staying single is safer, and there’s no need for complicated relationships when hooking up is easy. When he moves in next door to Ryan, they’re both interested in picking up where they left off, and it seems like an ideal arrangement: convenient, mutually satisfying, and with no strings attached.
Despite their best intentions to keep things casual, they develop an emotional connection alongside the physical one. Both begin to want more from the relationship but are afraid to admit it. If they’re going to work things out, they need to start being honest–first with themselves, and then with each other.
—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.—

Ever since Johnny was introduced in the previous book I couldn’t wait to get my hands on him, so to speak…Get ready because this one is HOT! 😜

Ryan is straight, although he is definitely a bit bi-curious.He’s totally into tall, leggy blondes so when he sees a girl(he thinks) at a party he’s more than interested.When said blonde turns out to be a guy he’s not really put off. Johnny definitely hits the spot for him.

Fans of Kristen Callihan and Kylie Scott will scream for this sizzling bad boy rock star romance! 
I’m not who you think I am.
Shane Hawthorne has it all. At least, that’s what the headlines say about me. I have millions of fans, awards, more money – and women – than I know what to do with. But what you don’t see is the wreckage I’ve caused. The memories and pain I can’t escape, even when I pour them into music and spin them into gold. 
I tried to forget. To lose myself in booze and groupies. It didn’t work. It hurt me and – worse – it hurt my band. That’s the last thing I want to do, so I’m cleaning up my act… starting with Delaney Fraser. 
Gorgeous, smart, drama-free, and even nice – Delaney is the perfect “girlfriend.” When I’m with her I don’t have to pretend. It’s like she sees the real me. And I can see a future with her. But that’s dangerous. Because the truth is, Shane Hawthorne doesn’t actually exist. He’s a shield to hide who I really am. Fraud. Runaway. Addict. Murderer.
And it’s impossible to love a lie, right?

Oz: Escaping the international modeling scene to design my own fashion collection is the first step to shucking my bobble-headed supermodel reputation and proving to the world I’m more than just a pretty face. But the minute I have to accept roadside help from the sexy man next door, I feel like the airhead people think I am. And what’s worse, the man clearly doesn’t think I’m worth the time of day. 
But despite trying to ignore my attraction to the mysterious doctor, I can’t help but be drawn to him. With every moment spent together, I begin to realize he’s hiding more than just some details of his past. He has one foot out the door. 
As soon as I start to feel like everything might be coming together for me, I realize the man I’m falling in love with isn’t who I thought he was. 
Jake: After three years on the run for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, I’ve finally found a seemingly safe place to settle in Haven, Colorado. With friends, a job, and a cabin in the woods, I have everything I need to live a simple life without drawing attention to myself. Everything’s fine. Fine. 
Until I meet my new neighbor. The gorgeous man is anything but subtle and brings color to my life that I didn’t know was missing. But I learned years ago that falling in love with someone wasn’t an option anymore when simply being seen with me could have dire consequences. It’s time for me to run again, but I wonder if it’s safe to stick around just long enough for a taste… 
Just when I begin to realize Oz is the missing piece to bring me back to life after years of hiding, my past catches up to me and throws everyone around me into danger. I know I should run, but what if it’s time to finally stop running and make a stand, once and for all? 
While Body and Soul is the third book in the Twist of Fate series, each novel can easily be read as a standalone.

First things first…Let me start out by saying, that this book is an M/F book. As far as I know, the first two books will be M/F. After that, there might be M/M, but I am not completely sure…I myself read both, and since Megan Erickson has become a favorite author of mine with her M/M books, I figured I would give this one shot too…Also, it’s about hackers and I think hackers are so freaking SEXY!!!

I loved Elle Casey’s  “Shine not Burn” series, so I figured I would give this new series a try and hope it would be just as great…Even though I enjoyed reading this one, it was very different from her other series…This book is about a group of women of around the same age (24/25), being raised by their (different) mothers, on a communal honey farm. They are very self-sufficient, and therefore also very sheltered.

Jason Banning is a wreck. His leg’s been blown to hell in Afghanistan, his boyfriend just left him and took the dog, and now he’s back in his hometown of Pinehurst, Washington, a place that holds nothing but wretched memories…and Nathan Tull. Nathan Tull, whose life Jason ruined. Nathan Tull, who will never believe Jason did what he did for a greater good. Nathan Tull, whose reverend father runs the gay conversion therapy camp that Jason once sought to bring down—at any cost. 
Nathan Tull is trying to live a quiet life. Four years ago, when Nate was a prospective student visiting UW, his world collapsed when senior Jason Banning slept with him, filmed it, and put the footage online. A painful public outing and a crisis of faith later, Nate has finally begun to heal. Cured of the “phantoms” that plagued him for years, he now has a girlfriend, a counselor job at his dad’s camp, and the constant, loving support of his father. 
But when he learns Jason is back in town, his carefully constructed identity begins to crumble. As desperate to reconcile his love for God with his attraction to men as Jason is to make sense of the damage he’s done, Nate finds himself walking a dangerous line. On one side lies the righteous life he committed himself to in the wake of his public humiliation. On the other is the sin he committed with Jason Banning, and the phantoms that won’t let him be. But is there a path that can bridge those two worlds—where his faith and his identity as a gay man aren’t mutually exclusive? 
And can he walk that path with the man who betrayed him?
