51O1ITIDEjL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_Bankers’ Hours by Wade Kelly 

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1RqVgvD
Review –> http://bit.ly/21L8eZY

Synopsis

Even though bankers' hours leave long weekends for romance, cosmic intervention is Grant’s only option when money doesn’t buy happiness and he’s got virginity in spades.
Grant Adams is a twenty-six-year-old bank teller who’s unlucky at love, yet hopelessly hopeful. After years of horrific first dates, he’s convinced he’s saving himself for true love. Surely he has bad taste in men because it couldn’t possibly be his persnickety nature that’s sent them packing.
Tristan Carr has been in a holding pattern since his daughter was born fifteen years ago, which suits his workaholic lifestyle just fine. This ex–naval officer turned auto mechanic never wanted anyone interfering with being a weekend dad. For Tristan to rearrange his carefully orchestrated life, a guy will need to be special. Or in the case of the newest employee at his bank, the guy will need to be adorable, shy, and open to the prospect of forever when it shows up at his window.

Synopsis

Jamie Matthews goes to Cornwall to find his missing brother. The police are convinced Michael drowned, but Jamie knows better. No way would Michael swim to his death, especially on a beach with a wicked rip tide. Finding a stranger in his brother’s cottage only deepens his misgivings.
Felix Bergstrom is recently discharged from the British Army. Unable to put the past behind him, he takes an unhealthy interest in old acquaintance and millionaire businessman Karl Weston, hoping to catch him up to no good. Michael’s disappearance adds fuel to Felix’s suspicions. Weston’s clifftop home overlooks the beach where Michael supposedly walked into the sea, but Weston has an alibi for that day.
When Jamie and Felix meet, the physical attraction is instant. Mistrust keeps them from acting on it until finally all their secrets are laid bare. But time isn’t on their side. Before they’re able to work out whether they have a future, danger catches up with them and threatens to put an end to everything.

Review –> http://bit.ly/1RxxlJW

Synopsis

Book 5 in The Hampton Road Club series

A feisty, untrained Dominant shows up at Hampton Road. Could he be the right man who Colin’s been saving himself for?

Submissive Colin loves his new life and job at The Hampton Road Club. He doesn’t mean to make the staff angry when he reorganizes everything or to frustrate the available Masters by never letting them touch him. He only wants to serve someone, to make them happy, but he’s also waiting for the right man—the way his grandmother had advised him to do before she died.

Another night, another brawl. Roddy had hoped that Hollywood would have better male prospects than Louisville when it came to playing rough. When Roddy’s latest would-be conquest threatens him with bodily harm, Roddy is chased right into the path of two of Hampton Road’s Masters, Ned and Aaron. They describe a wonderful club to him, where sadomasochistic men can enjoy each other, hidden safely behind the walls of an elegant mansion.

The moment Colin and Roddy spot each other, they fall hard and fast. While Master Saul is thrilled that Colin has finally found someone, what do any of them really know about their new guest?

It seems that Saul’s fears are ungrounded until tragedy strikes in Roddy’s world. It’s then that the validity of Colin and Roddy’s new love is truly tested. Was their bond real, or did Roddy have another agenda he’d kept secret all along?

Synopsis

A Cole McGinnis Mystery
Former LAPD detective Cole McGinnis’s life nearly ended the day his police partner and best friend Ben Pirelli emptied his service weapon into Cole and his then-lover, Rick. Since Ben turned his gun on himself, Cole thought he’d never find out why Ben tried to destroy him.
Years later, Cole has stitched himself back together. Now a private investigator and in love with Jae-Min Kim, a Korean-American photographer he met on a previous case, Cole’s life is back on track—until he discovers Jeff Rollins, a disgraced cop and his first partner, has resurfaced and appears to be working on the wrong side of the law.
As much as Cole’s fought to put the past behind him, he’s soon tangled up in a web of lies, violence, and death. Jeff Rollins is not only trying to kill Cole’s loved ones, he is also scraping open old wounds and long-forgotten memories of the two men Cole loved and lost. Cole is sure Rollins knows why Ben ruined all their lives, but he isn’t looking for answers. Now Cole is caught in a cat-and-mouse game with a cold-blooded killer with the key to not only his past but his future.

Trailer Trash by Marie Sexton

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/21Egye3
Review –> http://bit.ly/1Se3JEw

Synopsis

It’s 1986, and what should have been the greatest summer of Nate Bradford’s life goes sour when his parents suddenly divorce. Now, instead of spending his senior year in his hometown of Austin, Texas, he’s living with his father in Warren, Wyoming, population 2,833 (and Nate thinks that might be a generous estimate). There’s no swimming pool, no tennis team, no mall—not even any MTV. The entire school’s smaller than his graduating class back home, and in a town where the top teen pastimes are sex and drugs, Nate just doesn’t fit in.
Then Nate meets Cody Lawrence. Cody’s dirt-poor, from a broken family, and definitely lives on the wrong side of the tracks. Nate’s dad says Cody’s bad news. The other kids say he’s trash. But Nate knows Cody’s a good kid who’s been dealt a lousy hand. In fact, he’s beginning to think his feelings for Cody go beyond friendship.
Admitting he might be gay is hard enough, but between small-town prejudices and the growing AIDS epidemic dominating the headlines, a town like Warren, Wyoming, is no place for two young men to fall in love.

At a shifter party, a werewolf tries to console him, but their aborted hookup just seems to make things worse.

Can Parker and Lane tackle their respective pasts and give the thing growing between them a chance? Or will the very real possibilities of heartache, abandonment, and even death, keep them apart?

Promises: Part 2 by A.E. Via

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1pw8yiV

Synopsis

Roman “Quick” Webb is one badass bounty hunter on the crime-filled streets of Atlanta. He’s fearless when it comes to carrying out his dangerous job alongside his longtime best friend and business partner, Duke. However, there is one thing that has begun to cause Quick concern and it’s the dreadful thought of living out the rest of his life alone. Seeing his best friend and his son fall in love and sharing the special connection that only true soulmates can, has made him all the more aware of what’s lacking in his life.
Love.
Dr. Cayson Chauncey has been wildly attracted to the big, tattooed hunter for almost a year, ever since he performed the surgery that saved Quick’s best friend’s life. Cayson must’ve mistaken Quick’s gratitude for something more, because the one time he tried to make his desires known, he was harshly rebuffed and left on the man’s doorstep feeling stupid for hitting on an obviously very straight man.
Cayson never dated a man who was willing to come out of hiding and be with him. Now at almost forty, Cayson is intent on no longer being anyone’s dirty secret. Having experienced countless disappointments, and having taken a stand not to fall for any more tricks, Cayson is more than a little skeptical when Quick comes around asking for a second chance to prove himself. The gorgeous man had already made it clear he was definitely uninterested in Cayson… or so he’d thought.
Dr. Chauncey stirred up Quick’s suppressed, most carnal desires from a place deep down inside of him. He’d reacted so badly the first time that now his sexy surgeon wanted nothing to do with him. It was going to take a fair amount of patience and a whole lot of wooing involved as Quick sets out to convince Cayson that he’s worth another chance and that he is the brave lover who Cayson has been looking for.
With a scorned ex and a very dangerous job thrown into the mix, Cayson’s happiness and all of Quick’s promises may not be as easy to keep as they’d hoped.
PARTS ONE AND TWO IN THIS SERIES CAN BOTH BE READ AS STANDALONES. THERE ARE NO CLIFFHANGERS IN EITHER BOOKS.

It's time to come home, Finn.
It’s been seven years since Daniel Finley left his hometown in Florida for the hustle and bustle of Chicago’s city life.
Since then, he’s worked hard for his position at the prestigious law firm Leighton & Associates, even when it’s caused distance and isolation from his family and friends. But that’s all about to change.

Six words will forever change the course of their lives.
Brantley Hayes has it all. Or so he thinks. When he first made the decision to take a job down in Florida, his family thought he was crazy. But, after years of living in the quiet beach town, he finally feels a sense of community. He’s surrounded himself with friends who are like family, has a job he loves, and owns a spectacular beachfront property that is his sanctuary.
Yet he still feels unfulfilled, as if a piece of the puzzle is missing, and he knows exactly which piece it is. On an impulse, he follows through with a promise he made years earlier. A promise to call home the one he sent away.
Nothing is as simple as it seems.
After years of separation, the former lovers are reunited, but Brantley wasn’t expecting to encounter the high walls now guarding Daniel’s heart.

A Gentleman of Substance by Julia Talbot

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/22sO1O9

Synopsis

Michael St. James hates tidewater post-Colonial Virginia with a passion. Banished there thanks to an ill-timed duel, Michael is bored with the countryside, and thinks his new companions are poorly-educated boors. What he needs is a challenge, something to stimulate his mind. Which is why, when Michael meets Daniel Calhoun, he takes such an immediate interest.
Daniel Calhoun is a gentleman farmer who has no time for the social niceties demanded by a man of his station any more than he has patience for changing fashion or politics. When he sees Michael St. James, Daniel sees a man with no substance, and he’s certainly not interested in becoming friends, or more, with the irritating man. There’s more to Michael than meets the eye, as Daniel soon discovers, and the two embark on a scorching affair that might just be the ruin of both of them. Can they find a way to be together, or will Daniel and Michael be forced to hide what they feel?

Book three in the Point Shot trilogy

What a difference a year makes. Twelve months ago, Victor Kalinski was one of the best and most controversial ice hockey players in the pros. This year he’s playing in the minors, has a paternity case pending, and has just been vindictively outed to the world by one of his own teammates.

But he seems to find life in the tiny town of Cayuga to his liking. A large part of that is Dan Arou, the Cougars’ alternate captain and the man who now holds Victor’s heart. Surely venomous, viper-tongued Victor hasn’t been mellowed by love!

Well, perhaps a little. But that doesn’t mean he doesn’t intend to get sweet revenge on those who’ve hurt the man he loves and the friends he’s somehow made along the way.

Life as a wandering musician used to be easy for Tisik. Then his plan of wining, dining, and bedding his way across the fairy world is ruined when he’s wrongfully accused of seducing a prince by magic--which happens to be illegal.
Nido is assigned to Tisik as a guardian. His task is to bring Tisik to trial in the king’s city. Nido too was convicted of a crime he didn’t commit, so he’s sympathetic to Tisik’s situation. Not to mention that he finds Tisik irresistibly sexy. But Nido has to stay focused; if he fails to bring Tisik to trial, he’ll be locked away in the catacombs again.
As they travel, Tisik becomes convinced of a plot to frame him. Since he can’t look forward to a fair trial, he decides to actually use his magic to seduce Nido and then run for it. And though it turns out Nido is all too willing to be seduced, the affection that follows catches each man by surprise. With the trial looming, Nido faces an impossible decision--send the man he loves to wrongful imprisonment, or sacrifice his own freedom.

Crossing Over by Susan Soon

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1pIZHLt

Synopsis

THE LADIES LOVE HIM, COLEMAN THE GRUNGY SKATER…

…but this young man needs an alpha male shifter!

Coleman Alvarez spends his free time after high school graduation at the local skate park in Venice Beach, California. He smokes marijuana with his friends, lays around to pass the summer days getting high and practicing new tricks. All his friends love him, and the girls his age worship his long blond hair, constantly telling him he smells like flowers. His peers see Coleman as the go-easy kind of guy, who cares nothing about how he spends his life.

Indeed, Coleman’s rosy cheeks and blemish-free complexion even catch the eye of guys who mock him for his “pretty face.”

If only this “pretty face” had a strong, resilient man to take care of him during the day and make love to him at night. This is a dream Coleman has had since the time he hit puberty.

When he roams into an abandoned house, he encounters something that can only described as a ghost. But it’s a ghost of his dreams, the image of a perfect alpha male shifter, tall and broad and hard as a mountain. Coleman’s friends run away from the apparition, but he stays and investigates just who this sexy stranger is and why he calls Coleman’s name.

Could this man literally be the man of Coleman’s dreams, the angel come down from heaven to sweep him off his feet?

Please note this novella includes two complementary novels with your purchase, with links to other stories you might find interesting. If you like short stories that pack a punch with heat and sexytimes, give this a shot. 18+ ONLY. READER BE WARNED.

Synopsis

“Give it up for Angel!”

Officer Allen Finley is not happy in his current situation. Gay, single, and working as a police officer in Los Angeles, Allen has found that finding love is a lot harder than he thought it would be. Especially not when the “City of Angels” seems to have far more demons in residence. After one too many one night stands, he’s all but given up looking for love.
That is until he meets his Angel. Leon Beaulne is a sexy, dangerous man with steely eyes and a wicked grin that could win over Satan himself. The only problem? Leon is a stripper, and he is just as jaded as Allen himself. In order to win him over, Allen is going to have to catapult out of his comfort zone.
Torn between his dreams and reality, how much will Allen risk to win Leon’s heart?
"Angel" is a steamy, standalone gay romance novel with a HEA and no cliffhangers.

The Rancher’s Son by RJ Scott

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1SikEpy

Synopsis

A man without memories, and the cop who never gave up hope.
When he wakes up in hospital, the victim of a brutal beating, John Doe, has no memories of who he is or who hurt him. The cops can find nothing to identify him and he can't remember anything to help... except the name Ethan and one recurring place from his dreams. Three words, and they're not much, but it's a start. Crooked Tree Ranch.
Cop, Ethan Allens has never stopped searching for his brother and his brother's best friend who vanished. When a report lands on Ethan's desk that may give new leads he jumps at the chance to follow them up. The man he finds isn't his brother, but it's someone who could maybe help him discover what happened ten years ago.
What neither man can know is that facing the very real demons of the past could very well destroy any kind of future they may think they have together.

  12. It's so tough to choose again! ;D at the moment I think I'd love to read Chasing Shadows by Annabelle Jacobs the most as i've enjoyed other of her books... But I could say the same about Between A Rock and A Hard Place ;D
    I also love the sound of Home by Donna McIntosh - New author for me and I love a bit of sci-fi. Definately going to be adding that along with the others in my TBR list... I've already bought one of the ones above, Finley, and plan to read that over the weekend. I thoroughly enjoyed Ellas Temptation Series so im excited.
