A Mended Man by Jaime Reese

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1YUfTod
Review –> http://bit.ly/1SQHs3v

Synopsis

A story of healing and confronting demons…
Detective Aidan Calloway is rock-solid strong. He's a man of justice—loyal to his friends, family, and job—even if it requires bending a law…or two. He shields himself behind an abrasive, fearless facade, until a phone call one night chips his armor and throws his perfectly planned, hollow life into a tailspin.
Jessie Vega is the epitome of optimism. His carefully crafted attitude of hope and positivity protects him from a past filled with too much pain. When a ghost from a dark time resurfaces and nearly breaks him, he must tap into his inner strength or risk losing everything he's worked so hard to build.
But Jessie can't do it alone. He must fight to break through Aidan's ironclad defenses to reveal the heart of the man hiding beneath the tough surface and mend his damaged spirit. Only then can they truly heal and become strong enough to battle the demons that haunt them and threaten their chance to finally be together.

Nate & Casey by Charlie Winters

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/26v1Lr7

Synopsis

Falling in love with the boy next door…
Everything changes for Nate Collins when his family moves to the Indiana sleepy town of Long Beach and directly next door to the home of Casey Appleton. Seven years of nearly-inseparable friendship between them finds Nate developing an unrequited adoration for his best friend, even sending them off to college together… alone and sleeping side-by-side every desolate night.
Christmas break and one drunken kiss later turns into an eighteen-day love affair—one that they both begrudgingly walk away from—each with disparate broken hearts.
But five years later, after a simple trip to the bookstore, Casey makes a purchase that could change his life forever and reunite him with the man who’d once meant everything to him.
But is it too late? With so much time between them and so much left unspoken, can they truly start over?

Timing by Ashley John

Synopsis

When it comes to love, is timing everything?
Tom doesn't have time for a relationship - not now that his fingers are practically touching the promotion he's spent years chasing. His weekdays are consumed by desperately fighting for his editor's attention and his weekends are wasted alone with meals for one and his cat for company.
All Cole has ever wanted is to work on the farm he was raised on, but money is tighter than ever and he is forced to get a job in a bar to keep a roof over him and his auntie's heads. Time is running out for the farm but he spends his days dreaming about a future he thinks he'll never have.
After an unexpected collision at the village train station, their lives suddenly become connected when Cole clumsily spills his coffee on Tom and it sets into motion something greater. Tom is wary of listening to his heart and Cole is distracted by the threat of losing everything. Each possesses something the other desperately needs, but can they ignore bad timing to listen to their hearts?

Synopsis

Dexter Wu's life is hectic, but he's managing—mostly. He's on the verge of finishing grad school, and that means putting the final touches on his number one project: HAL, a social robot and children's storytelling companion. But his best friend is leaving the country for good, his birthday's coming up, he's swamped with studying for finals, and he hasn't slept in days.
He's also going to destroy the world.
At least, his robot is, according to the possibly untrustworthy Agency, an organization whose mission is to protect the world at all costs. After his birthday party turns into a fight for his life, Dexter's simple life of fast food and Netflix binges is replaced by a glitchy oracle, the world's douchiest secret agents, and an ever-increasing chain of conspiracies.
With the help of Andre, a mysterious and disenchanted young agent turned rogue, Dexter sets out to plead his case to the Director in an effort to get his life back to what counts as normal—but he should know by now nothing is ever so easy.

“I just want to make music with you again.”

“It's been five years. Why is he even on my mind?”
Country music star Blake Bradley was born for the stage. His band, the Sinsationals, is selling out arenas across the USA. But a toxic cocktail of success, substance abuse, and personal conflicts threaten to tear the band apart. Secretly, Blake longs for the band's early days. Back when things were simpler. He had Cal, his best friend and guitarist, in his corner. Things were good. Things were easy. But when they dared to test the boundaries of their relationship, exploring something deeper, Cal quit the band and left Blake hanging. Coming home to Denver stirs up more pain than nostalgia.
“He thought we were just fooling around, but I fell in love. I had to run before it killed me.”
Bar owner Cal Lindsay is married to his job. He works hard and takes care of his staff, trying not to think about what could have been. But when his best friend drags him to a Sinsationals concert, he's face to face with the past he walked away from. When Blake shows up at his bar the next night, Cal isn't sure if he's there to make amends or flaunt his newfound wealth and success. All Cal knows is the aching truth: he never stopped wanting Blake. But it's far too late to fix things, isn't it?
“If we do this, you can't run off on me again.”
After a tentative reconciliation in the bar, Blake invites Cal to travel with the band. If everything implodes at the end of the tour anyhow, what's the harm? Touring across the Western US, the two men explore one another with the tentative caution of strangers. As they struggle to rebuild their relationship, they discover that second chances are earned, not given. Can Blake and Cal let go of past hurts and learn to forgive? Or will the band's infighting drive an impossible rift between them?
Heartstrings is a steamy, standalone gay romance novel with a HEA and no cliffhangers.

Raw Friction by BJ Scott

Amazon –> http://bit.ly/1UhMhBZ

Synopsis

Finding that special someone is great, but what happens when turmoil threatens to rip apart the fabric of your relationship? Raw friction happens!
The Chef:
Cheating on his boyfriend and getting caught in the act gets Bartholomew, Bart for short, a one-way ticket out of his happy home. Roaming from place to place, he has no trouble finding a bed partner at night, but he misses the man who holds his heart. Determined to get his act together, he builds a career with his culinary talents, not expecting to end up where he does.
***
His voice was deep and sexy, like a cool breeze on a hot day. By then, I was drooling. I was so engrossed with the blond that I had forgotten what we were there for…almost. I broke the moment to stand, shucking my shorts and jock down all at once. I stripped all the way by scraping my legs against each other while I watched the blond slide his hands up behind his head, the landscape of his body twisting like a river of skin over my unmade bed.
The Dancer:
Ballet is Brian’s passion, and ballet class is where he meets a much younger man. The attraction between them is mutual and instantaneous, but Brian finds the young man mysterious, elusive, as if he’s hiding something. And he is. The young man is hiding a dangerous side of his life.
***
Brian leaned over the table glaring at him. “What in God’s name are you doing in here?”
Derek stiffened. “What do you think I’m doing here?”
“Can’t you do something else, like wait on tables, clean apartments…anything else?” Brian paused to catch his breath. “I don’t believe this, Derek.”
“Believe it. I’ve gotta eat, and I’ve gotta pay rent,” Derek shot back. “I’ve had my own apartment for over three years. Do you know what that means to me? I’m not giving it up. And if you must know, I’ve cleaned apartments, but no more scrubbing someone else’s shitty toilet.”
The Rock Star:
Sal and Carmelo were best friends and lovers until Carmelo became a famous Latin singer, married a woman and had a family. After he does what he’s supposed to do, he does what he wants to do, and he and Sal find a nice little place of their own, hoping their secret remains between the two of them.
***
It was Sal’s first time and he could only imagine how incredibly clumsy he was compared to what he learned later on. But if anyone had been listening to Carmelo’s whimpering that morning, he didn’t think he had done so badly, and it didn’t matter much to either of them anyway. They were finally together. Somehow they made it back to Sal’s apartment unnoticed, where they were one walking ball of lust pawing the daylights out of each other.
Carmelo was trying to undo Sal’s jeans while Sal was trying to kick off his shoes. It didn’t work like it was supposed to, but it worked just the same. Sal was in bliss.

Boston native Dave Madden has just been fired from a dead-end bartending job in San Francisco. His long-suffering girlfriend helps him get a job at a nearby art museum as a guard.
