Single Malt (Agents Irish & Whiskey #1)

Eight months after the car crash that changed everything, FBI agent Aidan Talley is back at work. New department, new case and a new partner. Smart, athletic and handsome, Jameson Walker is twelve years his junior. Even if Aidan was ready to move on—and he's not—Jamie is off-limits. 

Jamie's lusted after Aidan for three years, and the chance to work with San Francisco's top agent directly is too good to pass up. Aidan is prickly—to put it mildly—but a growing cyber threat soon proves Jamie's skills invaluable.  

Jamie's talents paint a target on his back, and Aidan is determined to protect him. But with hack after hack threatening a high-security biocontainment facility, time is running out to thwart a deadly terrorist attack. They'll have to filter out distractions, on the case and in their partnership, to identify the real enemy, solve the case and save thousands of lives, including their own.



"The high-end FBI action is there providing heart-in-the-mouth moments – so fear not. A superb start to what promises to be an awesome series."


Until You (At First Sight #3) by TJ Klune

Sequel to The Queen & the Homo Jock King

Together with their families and friends
Paul Auster
Vincent Taylor
request the honor of your company at the celebration of their marriage.



"If you’ve enjoyed the series up to now, you’re going to want to grab this and read it straight through. Nothing is off limits in this series and TJ Klune even takes a couple cracks at himself with references to the almost ludicrously over the top plotline of The Queen & the Homo Jock King."


Down By Contact (Wilmington Breakers #1)

by Sloan Johnson

There’ve been two great loves in Zach Kendricks’ life. He lost one because of his commitment to the other.

After Griffin walked away because he refused to live his life in the closet, Zach put everything he had into achieving his football dreams. When he was drafted, he began to understand that Griffin had done the best thing for both of them by leaving. But that doesn’t mean he’s ever forgiven his first love.

Now in his second season with the Wilmington Breakers, Zach’s committed to keeping his head down so he can prove his rookie stats weren’t a fluke. He knows his resolve will be tested when he’s selected to participate in Outside the Pocket, a reality show which follows players through training camp. He’s almost convinced himself it won’t be a distraction when Griffin walks into the room. Distraction becomes an understatement when he’s informed he will be spending nearly every waking minute for the next six weeks with the only man he’s allowed to hurt him.

Will Zach’s love of the game be enough to keep him from being downed by contact again?



"The set up worked very well and happily, Zach and Griffin did clear the air about the past pretty early. It’s told in alternating POV which helped as the two fight their feelings and wonder if risking careers and their hearts is a good course of action."


Taboo (Book One) by Kol Anderson

Taboo Kol[3]Rating ~ 3 Stars

Buy on Amazon


Jake Ross never had it easy. He's learned to accept he won't have the life his friends have. With an abusive, alcoholic for a father and a younger brother far too good for this world, all Jake focuses on is keeping his kid brother safe.
But when their father goes one step too far, and introduces Weldon to their lives, it sets off a series of events that will change all their lives.

**Trigger Warnings**
Graphic depictions of rape, incest, violence. Dark themes throughout.



"It’s been hard to read this book and even harder to rate it. There are no happy endings here and while I wouldn’t say it ends with a cliffhanger, it definitely leaves the protagonist in a dire situation."


Snowblind by Eli Easton

SnowblindFS_v1[4]Rating ~ 4 Stars

Buy on Amazon


Snow, steam, and secrets.

The latest snowstorm carries something unexpected to the doorstep of Hutch’s secluded Alaskan cabin: a stranger named Jude, the most beautiful man Hutch has ever seen. Jude says he’s in the area for a ski trip and that he fled a domineering lover, thinking he could make it into town. But Hutch is a suspicious SOB and treats his unwanted guest warily. The problem is Jude isn’t just gorgeous, he’s funny and smart and flirtatious.

Two gay men snowed in for three days—things happen. Really good things. By the time the storm clears, Hutch finds himself a little too attached to Jude Devereaux, San Francisco-based male model. But is Jude what he claim



"I really enjoyed Snowblind. It was an entertaining, quick read that had me engrossed start to finish. A recommended read."


Afraid to Fly (Anchor Point #2) by L.A. Witt

AfraidToFly_600x9004Rating ~ 3.5 Stars

Buy on Amazon


Once a fearless fighter pilot, Commander Travis Wilson is now confined to a desk. It’s been eight years since the near-fatal crash that grounded him, and it still rules his life thanks to relentless back pain.

Lieutenant Commander Clint Fraser almost drowned in a bottle after a highly classified catastrophe while piloting a drone. His downward spiral cost him his marriage and kids, but he’s sober now and getting his life back on track. He’s traded drones for a desk, and he’s determined to reconcile with his kids and navigate the choppy waters of PTSD.

Clint has been on Travis’s radar ever since he transferred to Anchor Point. When Clint comes out to his colleagues, it’s a disaster, but there’s a silver lining: now that Travis knows Clint is into men, the chemistry between them explodes.

It’s all fun and games until emotions get involved. Clint’s never been in love with a man before. Travis has, and a decade later, that tragic ending still haunts him. Clint needs to coax him past his fear of crashing and burning again, or their love will be grounded before takeoff.



"If you’re looking for a book that will leave you feeling proud and uplifted for the MCs at the end after showing enormous strength of character, battling on all emotional fronts to get themselves sorted, then this book will be for you."


#FinishLine (GearShark 5) by Cambria Hebert

#finishline[3]Rating ~ 4.5 Stars

Buy on Amazon


Every race has a finish line.

Where you go after you cross it is what matters most.
And sometimes, that's the most intriguing.
Here at GearShark, we've featured lots of drivers.
All of them are well acquainted with the finish line.
And as race fans, we're well acquainted with cheering as they cross it.
What we aren't privy to is riding shotgun, seeing where they drive once the race is over.
Our interviews barely scratch the surface,
offering just a glimpse of the men and women behind the wheel.
The discovery of vanished Motocross sensation Jayson Hamilton,
who has been right under our noses for years, proves secrets abound.
It's time to dig deep. Look beyond the racetrack at the drivers who continue to pique our interest. In addition to scoring an exclusive, all-access interview with the elusive Jayson Hamilton (his first and only since the death of his fellow racer and partner Matt Lewis),
we've caught up with some of our most popular featured men and women in the racing world.
Where are they now?
Who are they now?
What do these hot commodities do when they escape the spotlight?
Rumors of weddings, babies, and new tattoos swirl through the media on a weekly basis.
And though we're headlining the hashtag #Finishline, we're far from finished.
In fact, we're just getting started.
This newest issue of GearShark is jam packed with everything you've been dying to know...
and it just might be our biggest page-turner yet.


#FinishLine is book 5 in the GearShark series, you need to have read #Blur and #Swag to understand this book.



"A great addition to the Gearshark series. It is a series that I love and will read over and over again."
