Legacies were made to be rewritten.
Assassin Hawes Madigan wants to do right—by his family, his organization, his city, and the man he’s falling for, ATF agent Christopher Perri. But Hawes’s rules are being challenged by someone willing to kill for the old ways. To save his soul and his empire, Hawes must make an impossible decision: fight from the outside or bend the knee to win back his throne from within.
Chris is used to being the inside man, the one undercover. Now, he’s on the outside marshaling forces in support of the man and the ring of assassins he was supposed to take down. His mission shifted when he found something that’s been missing for ten long years—a home, with Hawes.
As Hawes and Chris make a dangerous play for control, the lines between allies and traitors blur. Trusting the wrong person could destroy the legacy Hawes envisions for the Madigans. But not trusting anyone, or each other, could mean lights out on their love and lives forever.
The King and King Slayer fight together in this thrilling conclusion to the Fog City Trilogy!

~Synopsis~

I can’t sleep…
When unrequited love leaves Dylan Hart sleepless and nursing his wounds, instinct draws him to the one place he’s found mindless respite in the past—Lovato’s. It’s a place for every fantasy — for crazy-hot encounters — where a night of insane NSA sex brings relief to Dylan’s fragile feelings.
It should be a perfect escape, and for one magical night it seems that way, but then worlds collide, and reality bites when his hookup desperately needs a friend. Surely Dylan can’t trust his instincts when friendship has bruised his heart so badly before? 
It’s burying me alive…
The deck is stacked against former ballet dancer Angelo Giordano ever finding real love. At least visiting Lovato’s offers respite from a life defined by illness; a glimmer of light in the dull grey of his so-called life without dance. But then he encounters Dylan — a glorious ray of the brightest sunshine — who makes his heart pound once more with purpose.
Angelo’s mind is blown by this man, but the disease that ended his career won’t let him bask in new love. He’s drowning, and Dylan can’t save him while insecurities swamp them both. The only way to make it means confronting their demons. 
If Dylan can turn his back on the past, and Angelo can face his uncertain future, maybe they can chase their dreams together.

Warning…voyeurism, a bit of kink, HOT, great chemistry, beautiful boys, emotional…
This is one of my favorite books by this Author. Right…so this is definitely one of her sexist books in terms of descriptive sex but it almost didn’t matter here to a certain extent because Garrett Leigh is one of the best M/M Authors who totally nails the chemistry between her characters…and that’s pretty special, getting that connection might seem effortless when you’re reading her books but that’s the beauty of her writing…This was such an easy book to read if you get me. I read it in about 24 hours and at no point did I even check my reading progress…I was so caught up in these two men.

Let me start out, by saying that this book can not be read as a standalone. It has a continuing storyline, so you should definitely start with book 1. Now if you really want to enjoy this series, you should start with the Addicted / Calloway Sisters series. You don’t have to...but the books are awesome, so why skip (unless you don’t read M/F, because yes they are M/F)

The guilt Sean feels from what they both endured still colors his interactions with the man he loves. Trying to overcome it is difficult and exhausting, making Sean question his place in Alexei’s heart.
Holding on is the hardest thing to do.

It is recommended that you read In the Bloodfirst before reading Out of the Ashes. There are explicit intimate scenes that are not suitable for readers under the age of 18 within the novella.

Reviewer: ~Wendy~
Rating: 4 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

The hardest thing a rebel can do isn’t standing up for something — it’s standing up for himself.
Life takes delight in stabbing Gus Scott in the back when he least expects it. After years of running from his past, present and the dismal future every social worker predicted for him, Karma delivers the one thing Gus could never—would never—turn his back on; a son from a one-night stand he’d had after a devastating break-up three years ago.
Returning to San Francisco and to 415 Ink, his family’s tattoo shop, gave him the perfect shelter to battle his personal demons and get himself together… until the firefighter who’d broken him walked back into Gus’s life.
For Rey Montenegro, tattoo artist Gus Scott was an elusive brass ring, a glittering prize he hadn’t the strength or flexibility to hold onto. Severing his relationship with the mercurial tattoo artist hurt but Gus hadn’t wanted the kind of domestic life Rey craved, leaving Rey with an aching chasm in his soul.
When Gus’s life and world starts to unravel, Rey helps him pick up the pieces, and Gus wonders if that forever Rey wants is more than just a dream.

This is a “second chance” story, in every sense of the word, and I myself am a huge fan of second chances. 😉

Reviewer: ~Wendy~
Rating: 5 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

Running out of time.
Captain Jamie Callahan is frustrated with his team constantly being at the mercy of the enemy in order to further the MDF’s goals. To make matters worse, his father’s political campaign is ramping up and Jamie’s every move is being watched by the media. He is acutely aware of all the eyes trained on him, his team, and Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan in particular. Meanwhile, Kyle would give anything to stay in the shadows, but he refuses to leave Jamie’s side, no matter the scrutiny. Staying out of the spotlight becomes impossible when their families are threatened and vital choices about their future together can no longer be ignored.
Desperate measures.
Staff Sergeant Alexei Dvorkin and Agent Sean Delaney are enjoying their time together as a couple when Sean’s past catches up with him. As Alpha Team’s long-running mission gets derailed in the worst way possible, Alexei discovers the enemy is playing for keeps, and neither he nor Sean are in any position to beat the odds and win the game. As for Sean, he’s worried that even if they make it out alive, Alexei may never forgive him for giving into the enemy’s demands.
Stand your ground.
Manipulation is the name of the game, but Jamie is done playing by everybody else’s rules. So is the rest of Alpha Team, because if there’s one thing Jamie’s team knows? It’s that they’re a family—and you don’t mess with family unless you want to get hurt.
In the Blood is a 107k word steamy gay sci-fi military romance with a HFN ending that skirts HEA. There is military violence and on-page torture within the story that may not be suitable for everyone, so please read with caution. There are also explicit intimate scenes that are not suitable for readers under the age of 18. This is a direct sequel to In the Shadows and reading the previous books in the series would be helpful in enjoying this one.

I absolutely love this series… ❤ 

Which is pretty surprising since I’ve never been a big fan of Sci-Fi books before. But…Hailey made hell freeze over, and now I am hooked. 😛 I was a bit worried about this 4th installment though. I am mostly blaming Hailey for this because she kept freaking me out with little bits of info…also the title is a bit worrisome. 😉

Before I go any further with this review, you should know that this book can not be read as a standalone. This is a series and it should be read in order, starting with the awesome first book, “In The Wreckage”. …For those of you who have been waiting for this book…

Get ready and fasten your seatbelts, because it’s gonna be a bumpy ride. 😀

Author: Sloane Kennedy
Series: The Protectors #11
Genre(s): M/M, Romance
Release Date: December 14, 2017
Reviewer: ~Wendy~
Rating: 4.5 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

I failed Caleb once because I was a coward. And he ended up paying the price. 
Never again…
Ten years of war and the loss of nearly his entire family have left thirty-four-year-old former sniper, Jace Christenson, with nothing to come home to. And he prefers it that way. Life consists of his work in an underground vigilante group, the near-constant search for the last remaining link to who he used to be, and a string of meaningless sexual encounters that serve only one purpose… to make it easier to not feel anything anymore.
But when Jace gets the call that the young man he saved two years earlier has gone missing, he’s forced to deal with the truth he’s been trying to deny from the moment he laid eyes on Caleb Cortano.
That the young man is so very much more than just the exception to all his rules…
You know how if something shatters when it breaks, there’s no way to find all the pieces to put it back like it once was? Maybe sometimes it’s better not to even try…
Nineteen-year-old Caleb Cortano has been barely hanging onto his sanity in the two years since the truth about his father’s depravities came to light. A victim of the man’s crimes himself, Caleb has only managed to find any semblance of peace when he’s in the presence of the man who saved him once before.
But when he finally comes to accept that Jace Christenson wants nothing to do with someone who’s shattered beyond repair, Caleb finds another way to seek solace from the pain inside.
As the fear of being reunited with the father he both fears and misses becomes more and more likely, desperation has Caleb doing something foolish that brings him face to face with the only man he’s ever wanted… but who doesn’t want him back.
Caleb stays with me until we get some answers… just me…
When Caleb’s life is threatened, Jace refuses to walk away a second time. Even if protecting Caleb means he’s risking his own heart, Jace isn’t going anywhere. At least not until he can put some of the missing pieces of Caleb’s life back together.
But will Caleb be able to do the same for the equally broken Jace?
Will two shattered men be able to find all the missing pieces to be who they were truly meant to, or is Caleb right? Some things just aren’t worth trying to fix…
NOTE: While this book has all the elements of my romances including plenty of steamy times, some lighter moments and the ever-important HEA, IT IS A VERY INTENSE READ, so PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE PROCEED WITH CAUTION. While I’ve done my best to find a balance between sensitivity and realism in relation to dealing with the issue of sexual assault against a minor, this book does not gloss over the subject and some readers may find it difficult to read.
Trigger Warning: Sexual Assault Against a Minor, Other triggers may be considered “spoilerish” so they can be found by using the “Look Inside” feature or by downloading the sample and going to the section entitled “Trigger Warning.”
*Can be read as a standalone novel.

Finally !!! Caleb and Jace !! I know I am not the only one who has been anxiously waiting for their story and I am very glad to say, that the wait was definitely worth it. 😉

post-34976-Felicia-Day-YAY-gif-tumblr-weh-GamD.gif (500×210)

I have been a fan of these two since they were introduced in “Forsaken”, which was Eli and Mav’s story. Caleb was Eli’s, then 17 years old, stepbrother. It was pretty obvious Caleb and Jace had something magical between them, but I also agreed with Sloane, that Caleb had some growing up to do first. 😉

Release Date: December 18, 2017
Guest Reviewer: ~Judith~
Rating: 4.5 Stars out of 5

~Synopsis~

Sometimes, one stubborn Capricorn is all it takes… to drive Wesley Hidaka to crazy, flirtatious lengths. 
Wesley loves annoying his RA Lloyd Reynolds. He just can’t help it. Lloyd is focused, decisive, grounded. He has this amusing ability to follow rules. Of course Wesley wants Lloyd to break one… or three hundred. 
Sometimes, one smirking Gemini is all it takes… to have Lloyd laying down the law and marching Wesley straight back to his dorm room. 
It doesn’t stop Wesley teasing again. And again. And again . . . But damn. Lloyd doesn’t crack easily. He’s full of principles. He’s unshakable. He’s the perfect friend to have when Wesley needs help. Like with his truant brother and his old high school principal. 
Sometimes, one little lie is all it takes…to find Wesley fake-engaged to his off-limits RA. 
What can he say? It seemed like a good idea at the time . . . 
“Gemini Keeps Capricorn” serves up a double shot of cluelessness, with a side of rock’n’roll and topped with a slow burn HEA. It can be read as a standalone.

“When you realized I was your best friend.”

This is just too adorable for words…Super cute, sexy, the ultimate slow burn which this Author does so well…Great banter…fantastic supporting characters.

Lloyd is Wesley’s Resident Assistant and they’ve been kind of skirting around each other ever since they met.The attraction between them has been bubbling away right from the start but they both seem determined to put obstacles in the way of anything happening between them…
