Cowboy Danny Boone—a name he made up one drunken night and has regretted ever since—harbors a big past and yearns for a small future. A short, bright career as a champion bull rider almost ended in his death when his homophobic father discovered Danny was gay. Now Danny longs for a plot of land he can build a ranch house on and enough money to make up for some of the education he missed.

Danny also hides a preference for beautiful femmes who like to top—a combo rarer than a unicorn. Then onto the guest ranch where Danny works drives San Francisco decorator Laurie Belmont, a young man so gorgeous he makes horses gasp, and so ballsy he almost kills Danny’s attacker.

Laurie’s trying to find his way out from under the thumb of a domineering mother, helpless father, and rich, privileged boyfriend.

But no matter the attraction, their lives are worlds apart, and cowboys don’t ride unicorns.

Cowboys Don’t Ride Unicorns(Cowboys Don’t #2)

by Tara Lain

****3.5 Stars rounded to 4****

4-3-360x74


I haven’t read the previous book in this series, so it’s safe to say that this one can be read as a stand alone. I usually don’t read a lot of books that have a femme/flamboyant hero, because I am much more into the whole big bad alpha thing.

What I do love, however, are cowboys…they are my kryptonite.

Danny is a ranch hand at a dude ranch, which is owned by Rand (book 1). He used to be a famous bull rider in the past, but his dad put a stop to that, in a very cruel way. Danny changed his name and even though, he still rides on rodeo’s from time to time, to make some money…

…he tries to stay as far away from his past as he can.

Danny also has a very specific preference, when it comes to his romance/sex life. He loves flamboyant men, but he loves it even, more when they top him. Finding such a mystical unicorn isn’t very easy, though.

Until one day, such a rare unicorn walks into the ranch as a guest…. Danny feels an immediate attraction towards the flamboyant man. There is only one problem. Laurie didn’t come alone, he is with his boyfriend. His very rich boyfriend.

While Danny is trying to outrun his past, Laurie is struggling with his future.

He wants to do right by his parents and he knows his boyfriend could be a big help, but shouldn’t his feelings matter. He knows Grove is not the man for him. What he really wants is a go at that cowboy.

Luckily for both of them, he gets that chance …

“Hang on. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride”.

But what will happen when Danny is confronted with his past and Laurie’s future gets in the way….


This book was heavy on the insta-love, I would have liked it more if the two of them would have gotten to know each other a bit better. I also would have liked to read more about Danny and his father. The situation between them was quite volatile and it was fixed a bit too fast and easy for my taste.

Still ..it was a very nice read, even though my preference for alpha men has not changed.

In the end, I am happy that Danny found his unicorn….

~Wicked Favor~

Wicked Favor AMAZON

New York Times bestselling author, Sawyer Bennett, is happy to introduce a new Wicked Horse club in Las Vegas and you’re cordially invited to attend the grand opening…

As the owner of The Wicked Horse, an elite sex club located along the Vegas Strip, Jerico Jameson never spends the night alone. Gorgeous, ripped, and totally alpha, Jerico doesn’t grant favors and will rarely give you the time of day—unless he wants you in his bed. So when the sister of his sworn enemy shows up asking for help, saying no should be easy. But when Jerico takes one look at her and sees an opportunity to help this beautiful woman while exacting revenge on her brother, he’s not about to pass that up.

Beaten and bruised, Trista Barnes is running out of options, and Jerico is her last chance to get out of the mess she’s in. She doesn’t know why Jerico despises her brother so much, but as long as he can help her, she doesn’t care. Jerico offers her safety while opening her up to a sinful world she never knew existed.

As she succumbs to Jerico’s erotic charm, Trista lets herself fall into the wicked world of guilt free pleasure with no regrets. Under his strong alpha hand, she blooms, and so does Jerico’s possessiveness. But what happens when Trista finds out she was a pawn in Jerico’s game all along, and that the price for his favor was steeper than she ever imagined – her heart.

Author: Nicola Haken
Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 13, 2017


 
Since putting his life on hold ten years ago, Oliver Clayton doesn’t know who he is anymore. To his clients at the hair salon, he’s the sassy and confident stylist. To the crowds who come to watch his drag act at the club, he’s the fierce and fabulous Miss Tique. He’s popular. Talented. Out, proud, and self-assured.

He’s also a good actor. 

Sebastian Day is content with life’s easy, if not a little monotonous, routine. After several failed relationships, he likes the simplicity of being alone in his truck at his job as a heavy goods driver, spending the weekends with his teenage son, and putting the world to rights with his cat, Marv. He’s not lonely. He isn’t hiding.

At least…he doesn’t think he is until he meets the mesmerizing stranger with the red hair and purple lips. 

Can Oliver and Sebastian help each other embrace who they are? Or will a cruel twist of fate end their journey before it’s even begun?

Who We Are
Copyright © Nicola Haken 2017
~ Sebastian~
I WAS JUMPING down from my cab after arriving back from my last drop of the day when my life almost ended. Okay, so maybe I was known for being a tad on the dramatic side, but when Benny – my oldest friend and biggest pain in my arse -jumped out from behind my trailer, I almost choked on my fucking heart.
“Jesus Christ,” I muttered, breathless from the fright. “How the hell did you get in the yard?”
I’d been a heavy goods driver for thirteen years, working here at Patterson Haulage Ltd. for three of those – long enough to know they didn’t let pedestrians wander in off the streets to play hide and seek behind the lorries. Transport was in my genes, I guess. My dad had been a trucker all his life, and he met my mum at work – she worked as a clerk in the office. I never wanted to do anything else. I walked straight into my first warehouse job fresh out of school and stayed there until I was old enough to train for my Class 1 licence and could go out on the road. I loved my job.
“That old lady with the bright orange face let me in. Told her I needed to talk to you about Scott.”
“Scott?” Slamming the door to my cab closed, I fished my phone from the pocket of my Hi-Vis jacket and scanned the screen for missed calls. “What’s wrong with him?”
“Well, he likes Eminem, but hopefully he’ll grow out of that.”

 

“What?” Narrowing my eyes in confusion, I stared at Benny who looked to be admiring his thumbnail.
“Nothing’s wrong with him. I just knew they’d let me come see your truck if I played the kid card.”
Rolling my eyes, I huffed as I turned and re-opened my cab door. Climbing the steps, I leaned inside to grab my holdall and tacho card before hopping back down. “You’ve seen a wagon before. You shouldn’t use Scott like that. There could be a real emergency one day.”
“And if there is I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be the one anyone’d call about it,” he said, his tone amused as he ran his finger along the curtain of my trailer. “This needs a wash.”
“You offering?” I asked as I locked up the cab and started walking towards the transport office. I found it highly doubtful as I turned my head to the side and eyed up his leather coat, and beige turtleneck that no doubt he’d paid upwards of a hundred pounds for. Benny worked in recruitment. In other words, companies paid him far too much money to find them suitable candidates for their businesses, money which he wasted on overpriced shit he didn’t need. “Or did you come here for another reason?”
“I came because, as you know, it’s my birthday on Friday. The big three-four. I want y…” Pausing mid word, Benny spun on his heels. “Holy hot ginger.”
I didn’t need to turn around to know he’d spotted Rod, seeing as he was the only red-headed bloke who worked at this depot. “Christ, Benny. Keep it down. I have to work with these guys.”
“Chill out. The fact you’re mates with a gay guy won’t give away the big secret that you like cookies and ice cream.”
“It’s not a secret,” I snapped. Or maybe it was, given that I’d never told anyone I worked with that I was bisexual. My last two relationships had been with women, and ‘passing’ as straight was simply…easier. I was a copout and a liar but I was tired of explaining, defending myself.
There are a lot of misconceptions about bisexuality and I’d encountered most of them during my twenties. Now, at thirty-four, I was kind of exhausted with it all. I wanted to fall in love and create a future with another person as much as anyone, but I’d given up on the idea a while ago. Relationships, for me, whether with a man or a woman, seemed to consist of me justifying myself, reassuring my partner, or hiding – as Benny would say – the cookies or ice cream part of my sexuality.
I couldn’t just be me.

 

wasn’t good enough.
Contrary to popular belief, I didn’t want to sleep with everybody, and there weren’t twice as many fish in the sea, because most fish thought I was confused, greedy, unfaithful, trying to be trendy, or afraid to admit I was gay. The last one confused me the most. The number of people who believed bisexuality was a temporary label used to ease the transition to gaytown would never cease to amaze me. It happened, sure, but there were a hell of a lot of bisexuals claiming to be gay, or straight, for no other reason than they couldn’t face the stigma attached to it, too.
I was simply attracted to people. I got turned on by the way someone carried themselves, by their confidence, or even shyness. I felt the same stir in my cock and pull of excitement in my chest when I saw the rugged grooves of a man’s chest as I did the silky curves of a woman’s hips. People are beautiful. I couldn’t help it. It’s just the way I was made.
Thankfully, many people realised these days that being gay or straight wasn’t a choice. Unfortunately, some of these same people believed bisexuals were capable of making a choice, and that they should. Well, I tried that when I was a teenager. I tried to pick a side, to ‘fit’ in somewhere.
Unsurprisingly, it didn’t work out too well.
“Just tell me what you came for,” I added to Benny, pushing open the swinging door that led to the warehouse which, in turn, led to the office.
“Do you have Scott this weekend?”
“No. Lisa’s taking him to see Jenny’s parents in Cornwall. Why?”
“Great! You’re coming to the village for my birthday.”

 

Ugh. “Ah, you know it’s not really my scene.” I had my reasons for not frequenting the village, unlike Benny who spent so much time there it could be considered his second home. Besides, after a day on the road my idea of a good time was Netflix and a takeaway.
“Yes, Mr Misery, I know having fun isn’t usually on your To Do list but it’s my birthday and you’ll hurt my feelings if you say no.”
We’d reached the office now and I handed my keys over to June through the window partition while raising a sceptical eyebrow at Benny. “Fine,” I said. “But as soon as you’re too drunk to notice whether I’m there or not I’m leaving.”
“I love you.” He turned to June who looked rather amused by my dickhead friend. “I love him, you know.”
“Knock it off, moron,” I said, ramming my shoulder into his.
“Watch the jacket!” he shrieked as he rubbed at the tan leather that made him look like a seventies pimp. “You’re covered in dirt and smell like oil.”
“Please excuse my friend, June. They don’t usually let him out unattended.”
“Don’t mind me, lovey. I’ve seen all sorts in my time.”
I risked a glance at Benny, whose mouth had dropped ever so slightly open. For a man who wasn’t easily offended, the image was priceless.
“You’re on the Midlands run tomorrow, lovey,” June added as she tapped on her keyboard.
Nodding, I told her I’d see her in the morning, swung my holdall over my shoulder and started making my way to the car park, all the while trying not to laugh at Benny’s reaction.
“Did she seriously refer to me as an all sort?” he muttered under his breath when we neared my car. I knew he wouldn’t let it go so easily. “Clearly, out of the all sorts she’s met none of them have been make-up artists.”
“Stop it,” I said, snorting as I clicked open the central locking on my matte black Ford Galaxy. “June’s lovely. A little old-fashioned, but harmless.”
“I’m sure. It just wouldn’t hurt for her to go down a shade or twelve in the foundation department is all I’m saying.”
Opening the rear door, I tossed my bag onto the back seat. “Have you finished being a bitch?”
“God, I hope not.”
Removing my thick, Hi-Vis jacket, I threw that on top of my bag, revealing my dark green uniform polo shirt, before closing the door and getting into the driver’s seat. “Is that all you wanted? You could’ve called or text.”
Benny leaned against my open door, hand on hip. “Told you, I wanted to see your big truck.” He winked at me.
I wanted so badly to roll my eyes, or at least keep a disinterested expression, but I couldn’t help chuckle at him.
“I was in the area, and besides, you’d have said no without my pretty face to seduce you.”

 

Probably. 
“And hey, if you want to bring a plus one your red-haired co-worker is more than welcome.”
Shooing him away from the door, I pulled it closed and brought the engine to life before rolling down the electric window. “Let me know when and where during the week,” I said, dismissing the idea of inviting Rod. He’d only been here for three months and I didn’t know the guy well, but the fact he had a wife and three kids told me Rod wouldn’t be interested in the kind of socialising Benny had in mind for him.
“Will do,” he said, tapping the roof of my car before backing away. “Don’t forget I have expensive taste!”
Shaking my head, I bit my lip to suppress the grin that wanted to escape as I reversed out of my space. I already had his present – a bottle of Dior aftershave, same as every year. It was the only thing I knew the fussy bastard wouldn’t return in exchange for store credit.

 
 


 
Nicola Haken lives in Rochdale, England, with her five kids – one of whom is a grown man who many refer to as her husband. She spends her days writing about life, love, and all the beauty and angst that comes with it, and her nights binge watching Netflix or being the household slave. She’s also not very good at referring to herself in the third person, so if you’d like to get to know her your best bet would be to follow her on social media! 

Oh, and if the kids ever ask, she moonlights as the Pink Power Ranger while they’re sleeping…

Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C. WELLS always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way. K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, when the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot.

****4 Stars****

4stel-like


I’m not normally a fan of an age difference but this really worked for me.

Jamie is nearly 21 and struggling to put himself through college.

The college fund his parents had for him has been used for his parents long and messy divorce.He’s just lost one of the three jobs he had and is behind with his rent when a kind of Knight in Shining Armour steps in.


Guy is 38 and has a very comfortable life.

He offers Jamie a room in his home, wants to help with bills and tuition and genuinely wants Jamie to get the best out of life.
You might be forgiven for thinking this was just a bit unbelievable but somehow it wasn’t and I think it’s because Guy is a good man…I mean a really good man.There was no creepy ulterior motive about Guy’s proposal.He had been in a similar situation when he was young and someone stepped up to help him and he wants to repay the favor.

Guy is upfront about his sexuality.He’s gay but has two grown up children around Jamie’s age from a relationship when he was young.Jamie is straight and hasn’t had much time or inclination for sex.


There is no insta lust here.

They become friends and develop a mutual respect for each other.But gradually things change and their relationship develops at just the right pace.I don’t think this book it about being labeled as gay, straight or bi…..it’s a story of two men who connect emotionally and then physically.I enjoyed their friendship just as much as their sexual relationship…

…which was smoking hot!!


Some brilliant supporting characters, especially Ryan and Cole…….I so want their stories.The Epilogue giving teasers about Cole was very intriguing. I’m hoping his story is next if there is going to be one??

Talking of the Epilogue….I’m not normally bothered either way about one but this was just perfect.
A recommended read, even if you’re not a fan of an age difference I think this one might convert you.

Damian Tate. One look into his sad green eyes and I was hooked. I wanted to be the one to make him laugh, to make him smile. I hadn’t expected him to be the one to make me blush, to make me hot…to make me fall in love. He was my first kiss, my first love, my the-devil-you-know-for-webfirst everything. I wanted forever with him, but life got in the way.


He enlisted, I went to college, and for years we were never in the same place long enough to pick up where we left off.

Thirteen years after he left, tragedy brings him home. The stoic boy I fell in love with grew into a quiet, dangerous and wildly sexy man. He still tugs on all the right strings for me, but he seems determined to keep me at arm’s-length.

However, when trouble comes knocking at my door, he is the one to put himself between that trouble and me.

Spending time with him might drive me insane, or it might be our second chance at first love.

~Blurb~

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00074]Baseball has never been sexier in an all-new novel by New York Times Bestselling Author, K. Bromberg.

Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.

So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather, his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.

Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.

And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether he’s ready to play.

But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat, or is one of them bound to get burned?

Since putting his life on hold ten years ago, Oliver Clayton doesn’t know who he is anymore. To his clients at the hair salon, he’s the sassy and confident stylist. To the crowds who come to watch his drag act at the club, he’s the fierce and fabulous Miss Tique. He’s popular. Talented. Out, proud, and self-assured.

He’s also a good actor.

Sebastian Day is content with life’s easy, if not a little monotonous, routine. After several failed relationships, he likes the simplicity of being alone in his truck at his job as a heavy goods driver, spending the weekends with his teenage son, and putting the world to rights with his cat, Marv. He’s not lonely. He isn’t hiding.

At least…he doesn’t think he is until he meets the mesmerizing stranger with the red hair and purple lips.

Can Oliver and Sebastian help each other embrace who they are? Or will a cruel twist of fate end their journey before it’s even begun?

(M/M Romance. Not recommended for readers under 18 years of age due to language and sexual content.)

Who We Are by Nicola Haken

*****5 Stars*****imageedit_104_7293237175


Personally the sign of a good book, for me, is if I’m still thinking about it hours after I’ve finished it.

I absolutely loved this.I loved the happiness, the sadness, the hopes and struggles these amazing characters went through.

I’ve read Broken by this Author so I thought it wouldn’t be all sunshine and roses and it wasn’t but what it is, is a truly emotional love story.


Oliver has put his life on hold for 10 years….

…Concentrating on bringing up his younger half brother after their mother died.He struggles emotionally and financially, all he wants is to be a good parent to Ty.He works as a hair stylist by day and a drag act at night as the wonderfully flamboyant Miss Tique.He loves his makeup and heels and puts on a good act to the outside world.


Seb is a truck driver, one of the good guys.

He shares custody of his 15-year son with his ex who he has a fantastic relationship with.In fact, he’s got a lot of love and support from all his family.But things haven’t been easy for him.He’s bi and this is the first book I’ve read where I came to fully understand that being bi isn’t easy. The Author perfectly portrayed the struggles he went through as he and others came to terms with his sexuality.

Oliver and Seb story is beautiful.

It’s far from perfect but they face what life throws at them together.

” Are you flirting with me?”
” Is it working?”
” Maybe “


I’m not going into the story in any detail.I would advise going into this one relatively blind to get the most out of their story…trust me.
Some fascinating secondary characters who all played their part here.

You’ll need the tissues here but don’t worry, although there are sad tears there are truly happy tears as well.
A huge plus for me is that it’s set in the North of England (near me ) and I love that the Author kept it British from the banter to local shop names and the food….who doesn’t like beans on toast?…..that really is a British thing!

This is a beautiful story that I wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend.

I don’t do relationships…especially not with egotistical jerks like my new boss, Damian Wood. The man is vile, arrogant, condescending… and scorching hot. If he weren’t my boss and a grade-A a*&hole, I would turn on my world-famous charm and seduce the pants right off the man. But giving in to his undeniable allure might just cost me my job. Or worse yet, my heart.

I’m a prick…and Janice Holder’s new boss. Which means I should stay away, but I’ve never claimed to be a nice guy. If I don’t get my twisted fascination under control, it will only be a matter of time before I bend her over my desk and screw her. Hard. The way I’ve imagined no fewer than a thousand times since we met. I’m playing with fire and neither of us can afford to get burned, but landing in hot water might just be worth the risk.

Faking It with Damian is a full-length, standalone office romance. It contains steamy scenes with a ton of heat and strong language intended for mature audiences.

Faking It with Damian by D.J. Hunnam

****3.5 Stars****

The book starts with Janice.

Imagine similară

A beautiful blond girl with green eyes and a smoking hot body (of course she has a perfect body, she’s a Zumba instructor part time). Her dad abandoned her and her mother when she was a little girl. She doesn’t do relationships, she’s afraid of commitment, she thinks everyone will abandon her. But she also doesn’t have time for anyone in her life, because she takes care of her mother, who is dying.  She also hates her boss because he’s making her life miserable at work. But as much as she hates him, as much she is attracted to him. 


Damian is Janice new boss.

Imagini pentru hot guy dark hair with blue eyes

He’s a very sexy god with dark hair and blue eyes who takes every woman’s breath away. He is also an arrogant asshole, demanding, dominant and vile. As much as he try’s to stay as far away as possible from Janice, he is more and more attracted to her, and he does everything in his power to have her. Even lie to her and drag her in some funny games. Damian also had a hard life. His parents hating him all his life, and much more when his grandfather left all his fortune to him.


When the opportunity strikes, he doesn’t kick it away, he takes advantage and attracts Janice in his trap.

Every opportunity that he has.

“Kneel”

L〰:

What a demanding asshole. That scene…so intense.


The story with Damian wife was interesting, and although I don’t like drama, this one I enjoyed.

The book was intense but in the end...it softened. The sex action was good and hot…but to much licking. I liked that, don’t get me wrong, but I wanted much action in the real sex part. It was a scene when I thought that I would get some menage action, but damn…..no.

Interesting story with her father and the reason why he left her and her mother. That one I was not expecting.The book was good. The chemistry and the attraction between them were hot and intense, but I didn’t get Janice most of the time.

The book was funny, was good written, I liked the story, I liked the hero…but not so much the heroine.
