Confessions of a Wild Heart by Kade Boehme
Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1JeFC63
US Army PFC Jase Emery, on leave in Germany, sees Ase Ramirez for the first time with a camera to his face. Ase’s silly attitude, tattoos, & sexy motorcycle provide a welcome distraction for Jase. But their weekend of fun ends abruptly when Ase’s Catholic, Mexican-American family catch them. Through email, Ase and Jase are able to keep the link open. But that too comes to an end.
Jase was never able to live up to his parent’s expectations like his brother was. He didn’t stay and work the family ranch, or marry. He saw the world. His return from serving in the Army changed nothing, he wanted to be free to live his own life. But the death of his father and his mother’s failing health force him to come home, hide his bisexuality, and live a life in the closet as a local Sheriff Deputy so he can take care of his family. This was to be his life… Until Ase returns.
After his family caught Ase and Jase together, Ase worked hard at getting the heat off himself. His occasional thoughts of Jase and their amazing weekend dwindle as life and family take the forefront and fear drives Ase to make huge mistakes.
When Ase and Jase come face to face again, it isn’t easy. Insecurities, and a hurt that have only grown with time make it hard to see the future.Can their friendship blossom into something more? With Ase’s wild side reappearing from the shadows and major trust issues, can he and Jase, with huge obstacles of his own, learn to forgive, move on, and find a peace they both so desperately want… together?
Includes a Stetson wearing deputy living in a glass closet and a toppy bad boy with a lot of drama—and a love of women's clothing—who together just may learn to stop dancing alone.

But even if he's not completely a brat, it's well known Cory prefers to play rather than settle. And Elliot isn't interested in being anyone's toy—no matter how persuasive and persistent Cory proves to be.

After watching a number of his buddies be blessed with their mates, he has faith that Fate will soon reveal his own other half.
When Kort smells something wonderful on the clothes of a fellow gargoyle’s mate, he is quick to question the human. He suspects the other man has been in contact with his mate. Learning that the owner of the scent, a human named Mace Capston, was just in the emergency room, Kort locates the human’s home and takes up a vigil. He waits impatiently for his opportunity to speak to the human. The first time he has a conversation with the injured man, however short and in the darkness, leaves Kort eager for more.
When Mace’s attacker returns, Kort whisks the cute human to safety…too bad his mate passes out from fear in the process. Can Kort convince Mace that the creature from the dark is not the real monster?

Long Division by Taylor Leigh
Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1IjwufQ
Mark Hurt has given up on just about everything.
Plagued by depression and guilt, he no longer notices the dramatic changes happening in the world around him.
Even the new “Miracle Technology” from InVizion offers him no escape from the bleakness of his days.
Until he answers a wrong number call that changes all he knows.
Mathematician James Nightgood is everything Mark is not: Obsessive, brilliant and oddly naïve, he sees things around him differently, and in a way Mark desperately needs.
It is through his late night texts that James rapidly draws Mark into his strange world and grants him a chance for life and friendship that Mark has given up on all together.
Yet good always has a price; and as his feelings for James continue to grow, so does his wariness. For with the mathematical theories also come conspiracies; because the rapid changes Mark so stubbornly ignored, James has not. And some miracles are not what they seem.
While all Mark wants is to figure out his tangled emotions—clinging to James Nightgood for stability—he finds himself embroiled in something far greater and darker then he could ever have imagined. Something that will devour their lives and push them to a place they cannot return from.
For technology is one the rise, and the world is on the brink of a new and terrifying dawn.

Not Like the Rest (Not a Werewolf Fairy Tale Book 1) by Layla Cole
Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1LEbOzY
Length: 93 pages
Paul believes in fairy tales: true love, happy endings, and the soulmate that, as a werewolf, he knows is out there somewhere. He's spent years fantasizing about the woman who will be his mate, but what he gets instead is a straight guy named Jesse who apparently wants nothing to do with him. All Paul wants is a chance…if he can get over his own gay crisis first.
Jesse's thought about experimenting once or twice--hasn't everyone?--but that's it. The last thing Jesse needs is for Alpha Kappa Tau's newest pledge to upset his carefully constructed web of denial, or for his position as Pledgemaster to throw them together at every turn. All he wants to do is keep running until life gets back to normal...if it ever does.
But maybe, just maybe, normal sucks. And maybe, just maybe, he likes Paul more than he's willing to admit.
Note: Paul & Jesse's story will continue in Not Enough, available soon.

Bad Things by Varian Krylov
Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1LuSbfa
Length: 399 Pages
Xavier makes a lot of people nervous. The rest, he flat-out scares. More than his hulking, tattooed body, it's his predator's gaze that makes people feel vulnerable, as if he had the power to read their thoughts and see their soul. For his lovers, it's Xavier's ravenous appetite for all things carnal—for the taste of flesh under his tongue and the feel of a trembling body under his control, for whispered pleas and muffled cries—that makes him dangerous.
But recently, driven by a festering rage against the men who attacked his sister a decade ago, Xavier has developed a taste for a different kind of hunt and conquest: stalking men who do truly bad things and punishing the predators he sniffs out. The problem with vigilante justice, though, is sometimes the man in your trap is innocent.
Carson suspects he's playing a risky game with dangerous men. But the lies are convincing, especially when they're slipped to him among hundred dollar bills. He never guessed how big and dark the secret hidden under all the lies and money could be. And he has no idea he's not the predator, but the prey, until it's too late.
And you can't beg for mercy when there's a gag in your mouth.
But when Carson escapes from Xavier's trap, he's forced to accept that Xavier is far from his most dangerous enemy. Xavier may even hold the key to overcoming the painful past that has kept Carson prisoner for almost two decades.
WARNING: Although this is a story about two people falling in love, there are extended, explicit sex scenes, including some BDSM and m/m/m scenes as well as scenes of dubious consent and references to sexual violence which may be a trigger for some readers, although there is no graphic depiction of rape in the book.
