~Synopsis~

I gave them everything. After years of hard work and 
dedication, they gave me the boot instead of the promotion I deserved. 
To hell with them. I’d land on my feet. I was sure of it. 
The last place I ever expected to land, though, was in the
small town of Billingsley, Texas. A place I vowed never to 
return to after a disastrous one-night stand. 
Unfortunately, skipping your best friend’s wedding was not
an option. Neither was avoiding that one man who managed
to turn my world upside down in a single evening nearly a year ago.
I’d never been a runner. I’d never been one to hide. 
But sometimes, it’s necessary…

~Synopsis~

Can Jason find the courage he needs to be the man Seb deserves?
When Seb Radcliffe relocates to a seaside town in Cornwall, he feels like a fish out of water. He misses queer spaces and the sense of community he enjoyed when he was living in the city, and decides to open an LGBT-friendly cafe–bar.
Jason Dunn is the builder Seb hires to help renovate the rundown space where the cafe will be housed. Jason is also gay, but unlike Seb, he’s deep in the closet. He’s never had a relationship with another man—only allowing himself the occasional hook up with guys who are prepared to be discreet.
The attraction between the two men is instant and impossible to ignore. But while Seb is out and proud, Jason is terrified of being exposed. With the grand opening of Rainbow Place approaching, tension is growing among some locals who object to Seb’s plans. When things escalate, Jason is forced to choose whether to hide in the shadows and let Seb down, or to openly support the man he’s fallen so hard for.
–Although this book is part of a series, it has a satisfying happy ending and can be read as a standalone.–

From the author who brought you A Thousand Boy Kisses comes the new emotional novel, A Wish For Us.
A story of music. A story of healing. A story of love conquering all.
Nineteen-year-old Cromwell Dean is the rising star of electronic dance music. Thousands of people adore him. But no one knows him. No one sees the color of his heart.
Until the girl in the purple dress. She sees through the walls he has built to the empty darkness within.
When Cromwell leaves behind the gray skies of England to study music in the South Carolina heat, the last thing he expects is to see her again. And he certainly doesn’t expect that she’ll stay in his head like a song on repeat.
Bonnie Farraday lives for music. She lets every note into her heart, and she doesn’t understand how someone as talented as Cromwell can avoid doing the same. He’s hiding from his past, and she knows it. She tries to stay away from him, but something keeps calling her back.
Bonnie is the burst of color in Cromwell’s darkness. He’s the beat that makes her heart skip.
But when a shadow falls over Bonnie, it’s up to Cromwell to be her light, in the only way he knows how. He must help her find the lost song in her fragile heart. He must keep her strong with a symphony only he can compose.
A symphony of hope.
A symphony of love.
A symphony of them.

A wish for me, for you, for us.

I really love this author and I have read many of her books. The “Hades Hangmen” is one of my favorite series. This book is nothing like those books though. You see, one of the reasons I love her writing/books so much is because she doesn’t stick to just one type of genre. You never know what you are gonna get, but so far I have loved them all!!

~Synopsis~

They’re serving up some red-hot revenge. A sizzling series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Rachel van Dyken.

Blaire has never quite gotten over Jessie Beckett, the ex–NFL star whose kisses were hot enough to ignite the entire Eastern Seaboard. When he chose work over her, Blaire was left brokenhearted. Why else would she have married a skeezy two-timer, just to divorce him less than a year later? Now Blaire is getting even by becoming one half of Dirty Exes, a PI firm fully committed to humiliating cheating jerks. If only the new jerk she’s been hired to uncover wasn’t Jessie Beckett himself. Exposing Jessie isn’t going to be easy, especially when she still daydreams about his sexy smile. Further complicating matters is Colin, Jessie’s best friend. He’s gorgeous, a little bit cunning, and willing to help Blaire get the inside scoop on Jessie—for a price. Now caught between two men—one totally right and the other totally wrong—Blaire will need to decide just how much she’s willing to risk…and whom she’s willing to risk it for.

Apparently, this new series is a spin-off of the “Wingmen Inc.” series. Blaire, the heroine in this book is Ian’s (Matchmakers Playbook) sister. Now no worries, you don’t have to read the previous series to understand this book, it completely standalone. I myself haven’t, but since I really enjoyed this one, I will probably go back and fix that. 😛 Now, what I loved most about this book, is that it made me laugh. For me, this was really one of those feel good stories.

People are complex. Love a double-edged sword. 
And when it comes to a broken heart, there are no rules, only time… 
For the past eight years, Julien Thornton has been living with a secret. One that only a handful of people know about. To the outside world, he has it all.  A thriving career. A loving husband. And a face that the American public fell for by the millions, on a reality show that inadvertently saved his life. 
But behind the shine of celebrity, behind the easygoing nature, a crippling truth fills Julien with pain and self-loathing. It’s a truth that he fights to overcome daily with the help of his husband, Joel Priestley, and now their boyfriend, Robbie Bianchi. 
But unlike Priest, Robbie doesn’t know what he’s helping Julien to fight. He doesn’t know what Julien did all those years ago. And with the anniversary of his sister’s death fast approaching, the time for explanations is running out. 
And thus the question: will the princess be able to forgive the prick as the priest once did?  Only time will tell.

Those who are meant to be yours will always find you.

I am a big fan of Ella Frank’s “Temptation” series and I absolutely LOVED the first book in this series “Robbie” !! I couldn’t wait to start this one and read more about The Princess, The Priest, and The Prick...This time around we especially get to know more about “The Prick’s” past…I really loved Julien in the first book and he didn’t disappoint in this one…damn but there is something so extremely sexy about a hot guy talking French…

Theo Decker might be the lead singer of Riven, but he hates being a rock star. The paparazzi, the endless tours, being recognized everywhere he goes—it all makes him squirm.

Caleb is rough and damaged, yet his fingers on his guitar are pure poetry. And his hands on Theo? They’re all he can think about. But Caleb’s no groupie—and one night with him won’t be enough.
Just when Caleb is accepting his new life as a loner, Theo Decker slinks into it and turns his world upside-down. Theo’s sexy and brilliant and addictively vulnerable, and all Caleb wants is another hit. And another. That’s how he knows Theo’s trouble. Caleb can’t even handle performing these days. How the hell is he going to survive an affair with a tabloid superstar? But after Caleb sees the man behind the rock star, he begins to wonder if Theo might be his chance at a future he thought he’d lost forever.

A COMPLETE standalone and a Sinners of Saint spin-off.
Roman ‘Bane’ Protsenko 
Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief and a fraud. 
Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living. 
Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all—looking humbled. 
Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally—I cut boys from my life. Permanently. 
Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies. 
Jesse Carter 
Hot as hell, cold as ice. 
I wasn’t aware of her existence until a fat, juicy deal landed in my lap. 
She’s a part of it, a little plaything to kill some time. 
She is collateral, a means to an end, and a side-bonus for striking a deal with her oil tycoon stepdad. 
More than anything, Jesse Carter is a tough nut to crack. 
Little does she know, I have the teeth for it.

It’s no secret that I am a fan of L.J. Shen’s work. This is the fourth book in the series, and no worries, it can be read as a standalone. I would advise reading the others though, I myself especially loved “Ruckus”,  and even though this book certainly rocked…he will always be my favorite I think. 😉 That said, this one comes in on a close second!! Bane and Jesse definitely had me on the edge of my seat. 😉

~Synopsis~

The steamy Chicago Rebels series returns with this racy and sassy tale of embittered hearts, second chances, and going for the goal—on and off the ice.
Violet Vasquez never met her biological father, so learning he left his beloved hockey franchise—the Chicago Rebels—to her is, well, unexpected. Flat broke and close to homeless, Violet is determined to make the most of this sudden opportunity. Except dear old dad set conditions that require she takes part in actually running the team with the half-sisters she barely knows. Working with these two strangers and overseeing a band of hockey-playing lugs is not on her agenda…until she lays eyes on the Rebels captain and knows she has to have him.
Bren St. James has been labeled a lot of things: the Puck Prince, Lord of the Ice, Hell’s Highlander…but it’s the latest tag that’s making headlines: washed-up alcoholic has-been. This season, getting his life back on track and winning the Cup are his only goals. With no time for relationships—except the fractured ones he needs to rebuild with his beautiful daughters—he’s finding it increasingly hard to ignore sexy, all-up-in-his-beard Violet Vasquez. And when he finds himself in need of a nanny just as the playoffs are starting, he’s faced with a temptation he could so easily get hooked on.
For two lost souls, there’s more on the line than just making the best of a bad situation… there might also be a shot at the biggest prize of all: love.

Reviewer: ~Wendy~
Rating: ✮4.5 Stars✮

~Synopsis~

Everything was supposed to go back to normal when I was rescued. It hasn’t. And I’m starting to think it never will because I don’t even know what normal is anymore…
It’s been two years since Aleks Silva was rescued by his older brother from the dark underworld of sex trafficking and every day since then has been a battle. Leaving the house, interacting with people, even doing something as boring as deciding what clothes to wear or what to eat for breakfast are tasks that most people take for granted. But for Aleks, they’re torture. Because freedom and choice are things that once came at a steep price and survival meant submitting to the whims of those who only saw him as a possession and plaything.
Until there was one man who saw him as something more…
I knew from the moment I saw him that I was going to get him out. But I also knew once I did, I’d need to let him go…
He’s known as Vaughn and nothing more. His job is to make sure secrets don’t get out and the possessions he’s been tasked with guarding never escape and tell their story. After eight years in a world where innocent kids are used to feed the darkest of depravities, Vaughn has seen things that would break even the strongest man. But he’s played it smart and built up a wall between himself and the darkness that threatens to consume him.
It wasn’t until he met a young man who had to be a thousand times stronger to survive the life he was forced into as a child that the first crack appeared in his carefully constructed wall.
Vaughn’s only job was to make sure young Aleks Silva remained the ugly little secret of one of the most powerful men in Chicago. It was one job he was more than happy to fail at, and when he eliminated the threat against Aleks and set him free, he was sure their paths would never cross again.
But fate has other plans…
Vaughn is the only man from my other life who never had a starring role in my nightmares… but he’s been in every one of my dreams. And I don’t know why…
When Aleks is suddenly abducted after leaving work one quiet spring evening, he’s certain he’ll never see his brother and family again. But terror quickly turns to relief when a familiar face once again comes to his rescue, along with all the feelings he’s always had but never quite understood around the dangerous, older Vaughn. Certain that Vaughn will make everything okay again like he did once before, Aleks knows he doesn’t even need to ask Vaughn to take him home. But when he does anyway, nothing he’s ever experienced prepares him for Vaughn’s answer… or the brutal betrayal that comes along with it.
I’m sorry, Aleks, I can’t do that.
Trigger Warning: Sexual Assault Against a Minor—
–Can be read as a standalone novel but if you have not read any books in this series, you may want to at least read Book 6, Atonement, first. Atonement is the story of Aleks’s brother, Dante, and both brothers appear in each other’s books so it is helpful to know their backstories.–

Ever since finishing “Shattered”, I have been on pins and needles for Aleks’ story. Those of you who are familiar with “The Protectors” series, know that Aleks is Dante’s little brother. He was abducted 12 years ago and spent 10 years of his young life as a sex slave. Two years ago, he was finally rescued by Dante and Magnus in “Atonement”. But let’s not forget they had a bit of help…from Vaughn. He played a big part in Aleks’ rescue.
