Blurb:  Jon is the man of his dreams, but can he prevent those dreams becoming a nightmare?

Every night, Xander Craig has the same dream. He’s in the shower with a gorgeous stranger, who is shot by a mystery assassin and dies in Xander’s arms. Xander believes this dream is tied to his guilt over failing to prevent the death of his husband, Gary, but his latest assignment as a top-level bodyguard causes him to reassess that belief. He’s charged with looking after wealthy and successful entrepreneur, Jon Kovacs, who’s being stalked by an obsessive, dangerous ex-boyfriend. As soon as Xander sees Jon’s photo, he knows this is the man in his dream.

Xander escorts Jon to a remote safe house on the cliffs, as a police manhunt for Jon’s ex, Cody, takes place. He and Jon start to fall for each other. Xander knows he’s crossing a line, but he can’t help acting on that attraction. While he and Jon are sharing intimate moments, is Xander’s dream about to become violent reality?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Xander has had the same dream for some time.  He figured it was from when his husband had died, but there was also the feeling of something else mixed in.  He is a bodyguard and loves his work.  So when he finds out that the man he is about to protect, is the same man from his dream, well things just got interesting.  Now he just needs to make sure the dream never comes true.

Jon has had the worst luck in boyfriends.  The last one wants him dead and he needs help real fast.  He just hadn’t expected Xander.

This is a short story, but there is so much to it that it doesn’t feel that way.  In fact when I looked up the details for this review, I had to double check the page count.  I am not a fan of writing reviews for short stories because of the fear that you give something away. However in this case, the blurb gave out more.  It is a very straight forward type of story with no real twists and turns to it.  It is entertaining as hell, but I can say the ending of the book really sucked.  It felt like a cliff-hanger for later, but who knows if there is going to be another book or not.  

Other than the ending, I quite enjoyed it and can see myself reading it more than once.  I had a lot of fun and would recommend it.

Blurb: He keeps his true identity hidden, even from the man he loves…

Twenty years ago, superheroes were outlawed by the mayor of Mokum City. Christopher Chase has grown up knowing that he has all the strength and speed of Sprint, his superhero father, who died attempting to save the mayor’s niece from being kidnapped. But, unlike his father, he is unable to fulfill his destiny and become a masked crimefighter. Even Christopher’s boyfriend, bar owner Johnny Brennan, doesn’t know Christopher’s true identity.

A chance encounter with a purse snatcher in the city cemetery gives Christopher a taste of what it’s like to use his powers for good. And when Johnny becomes caught up in a hostage situation, Christopher can no longer stand by. Even if it means losing his own life, he must pull on the costume of Sprint to save the man he loves.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Christopher father was a super hero that lost his life.  Then the mayor decided all superhero’s needed to be outlawed.  The problem was Christopher had inherited his father’s abilities.  Then the test came when the man he loved was in danger.

This story had a lot of potential that was not used.  It is way too short and just gives you a taste of what it could be like.  Unanswered questions were all that was left for me.  It is an enjoyable story but felt rushed to me.  Also I noticed in the blurb that his boyfriends name is Johnny, but in the story it is Jimmy so I am guessing some editorial needs to be done just a bit.  Other than my issues with the story, I will admit that it is a fun little read.  I can’t see myself reading it more than once though, which is a shame. 

I hope this author turns this book into a novel or novella with more to it.

Blurb: Rush is so deep in the closet he can’t find the door, but meeting Brian might give him the courage to step out of it.

When Brian and Rush meet in a dark alley, sparks fly. The attraction is fast and hard, but Rush is a rancher with a reputation to uphold and Brian is out and open.

Both men have secrets, including the small powers they each have, and a relationship means they might have to share. It would require Rush coming out of his closet and putting his ranch and his friendships with the people around him at risk.

For Brian, it means putting his heart on the line for a man who’s afraid of being himself. He’s been down that road before and Brian won’t go back in the closet, not even for Rush.

Each time they’re together, Rush and Brian set the air around them on fire. As they move closer, both are still holding back, still unsure of each other. One of them will have to take the first step or this thing between them will flounder.

For Rush, it’ll take a huge step and a lot of trust to risk his entire life in the small Texas town of Spring Lake. And once he’s out, there’s no going back.

For Brian, his heart isn’t the only thing at risk. If he keeps seeing Rush, he knows he might just lose his life.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Brian is a Pi and while on a stake out meets sexy Rush in alley. Instant sparks fly. There are repeated phone sex conversations which I did not care for. Rush is in the closet and it shows throughout the book. If he was that worried why did he not just stay in it. 

I felt sorry for Brian having feelings for someone who was not sure yet whether or not he could be with another man out in the open. I say tell him when you make up your mind call me then. 

While I expected this book to be better than the first it was not in my opinion. Sammi and Mitchell are in it and I liked that Brian was determined to figure out who Sammi is. I also got really irritated with all the sex scenes and the back and forth of one character making repeated mistakes and the other forgiving him. Seriously? I would have said enough was enough.

It was an o.k. read.

Blurb: Life isn’t always responsible

After his mother tragically dies and his deadbeat father goes off the rails, nineteen-year-old Micky is left to care for his disabled little brother, Flynn.

Juggling college, a dead-end job and Flynn’s special needs means Micky has to put his bad-boy past behind him and be the responsible adult to keep his brother out of care. He doesn’t have time for anything else in his life.

Review: Micky has had a difficult life but now at nineteen he has begun to turn his life around, he’s just got a half decent job, he’s studying for his exam re-takes and he’s desperate to keep his little brother Flynn out of care. He hasn’t got time for relationships and then he meets his new manager Dan.

This is a wonderful story that shows a more true to life living than is usually seen in books. Micky is a guy who has been handed a crappy life, he’s determined to turn it around though for his little brother but life keeps throwing up obstacles that threaten to destroy everything he is working towards. Dan has had a pretty easy life and although he’s working a job that he never thought would be permanent he’s pretty happy except for the lack of a boyfriend.

When Micky and Dan get together, it isn’t easy for either of them. Micky can’t just throw himself into a relationship, not just because he’s in the closet, but also because he’s worried about Flynn. Flynn is an absolute darling, he has Williams syndrome and you just want to snatch him up and snuggle him to death for his sweetness. Dan has his own small demons from previous relationship break-ups so he feels like he’s on rocky ground especially when Micky pushes him away.

The characters in this story are brilliant written, they jump off the page with their vitality and I’m not just talking about Micky, Dan and Flynn, I mean all the characters. They have an air of realness to them, I know that I myself was reminded by some of the characters to friends I’ve had over the years. They really do remind me a lot of my teenage year’s friends… and I now find that really creepy LOL.

This storyline is an amazing one; it brings the simple mundane life to the forefront and shows the struggles against a system and snobbery by a young man just trying to improve his lot in life for his younger brother. I dare anyone not to fall in love with Flynn, to admire Micky, and to hope that Dan can continue to wear Micky’s walls away.

My only niggle at this story was the ending, the abrupt way it cut off on a cliff-hanger had me gritting my teeth and cursing the author out… come on did you have to end it just there?

Anyway, I recommend this story to those who love more lower class real life stories, who adore young children who are cherubs, who want to see two young men find each other and the beginnings of love, and who want a story that has you hooked from the first couple of pages.

Blurb: Being a P.I. isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Sometimes it’s downright scary—and alien.

Ledger is a P.I. with a difference—he’s a wolf shifter and uses his animal to help him on cases. His next case, though, isn’t something he expected. His best friend, Jared, the man he’s secretly loved since they were younger, has a bit of a problem. Someone is stalking him, and when she turns up at Ledger’s place and stares at them through the window, Ledger realizes things aren’t quite as simple as he’d first thought. She’s bonkers, with wild red hair and staring green eyes, and she needs dealing with—fast.

Jared is a drag queen, famous on the stage after he tried his hand at acting and won. He’s a star, loved by all, so to have a stalker isn’t something he can handle alone. Ledger promises to follow Jared so he can catch the stalker in the act, but things take a weird turn. After the stalker leaves a message that Ledger and Jared must meet her at a local café, the plot thickens to pea-soup viscosity. Someone called The Gecko is after Jared, and The Gecko is used to people doing exactly as he says…

But The Gecko isn’t human, and although Ledger has been obsessed with UFOs and alien life forms since he was a kid, he never thought he’d be meeting otherworldly creatures in real life. The men have no choice—they have to meet The Gecko. And isn’t that the strangest of things to be doing, fraternizing with an alien? Strange or not, Ledger and Jared have to obey—or forfeit their lives.

But Ledger doesn’t plan on anyone dying, especially not them…

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  Every once in a while you come across a story that will just leave you brain dead.  You have no clue what you just read nor do you want to know.  

Ledger is a private eye who is also a wolf shifter.  He has the hots for one sexy man, Jared.  Jared is a famous drag queen who has a very freaky woman stalking his ass.  The thing is that freaky woman is an alien and works for another freaky alien.  Things between the two men do start to heat up though.

Now this story did have potential but it failed quite nicely.  You start to get this story and it just seems to go sideways.  In my opinion it just seemed like a lot of filler to make words.  It would have been a cute story had there actually been a true story to read.  I can’t say that I would love to read another story by this author, because if they follow this same line, then the answer would be nope. 

I hate to admit it but this book was not my idea of fun.  Too bad because it could have been amazing.

Blurb: Sometimes all that shimmers…is the darker side of life

When the only world he’d ever known changed, Eric Meyers had to change along with it. Now he needs to figure out his next steps, especially when it comes to Tagh. Things get even more confusing when he starts dreaming about a man he doesn’t even know.

Tagh’s recovery from battle wounds isn’t helped when he has to face Eric’s continuing doubts. If that’s not bad enough, he also has to deal with more of his kind turning up and what it all means. There are zoos out there filled with people, people who shouldn’t even be there—people who need rescuing.

Jory has been held captive in one of these hellholes for the last few years. His dreams of Eric, a man he’s never met, give him hope that help is on the way, but the waiting is hard. To save the others, Jory stands up to their jailers. The only problem is that he is just one against the many.

What fate brings together, let no person tear apart. But is the trio ready to face a future none of them had ever planned on? Between their enemies and their heavy responsibilities, Eric, Tagh and Jory have to work out more than their immense differences—they have to figure out if their very relationship is strong enough to survive whatever’s coming next. Because come it will…

Review: After the events in the previous book leave Tagh gravely injured and Eric stays by his side. He learns Tagh is his mate though he is confused by his feelings for the man. Amid that he is dreaming of a sexy man in dire need of help.

Wow this story was a great addition to the series as progress was made in determining who was with who and all the help involved in setting about taking down the zoo’s. I seriously found that part disturbing in that anyone would do that to someone.

The overall story comprised of romance, suspense, action and edge of your seat scenes that leave you wanting more.

Blurb: A desire for justice as strong as their passion for each other.

Concerned about the welfare of his young cousin, Josh Jackson, a restaurant owner, traces the boy to Winterstone Grange, a gated manor deep in the country. Miles from anywhere, the protected walls of this stately house conceal dark secrets. Josh’s search brings him into contact with Ed Brolin, a handsome journalist who has spent weeks investigating the secrets of the Grange and its owner. Ray Armstrong is a wealthy businessman with influential connections in parliament and the police. Ed knows exactly what goes on at the Grange but, without evidence, he hasn’t got a story.

Drawn together by instant attraction and a powerful hunger for justice, Josh and Ed are determined to expose the sordid secrets of the Grange despite the risks. Josh has never met a man like Ed before—so strong, determined and masculine. Falling in love is easy. But they’ll have to put their emotions aside if they’re going to give a voice to all the silent victims of Winterstone Grange.

Reviewer:  Lisa

Review:  One would think that an eighteen year old disappearing for a night or two is normal, but for Josh it sends him out searching. With the help of an journalist, well what he finds will stay with your forever.

The title makes this story seem more then it is but not for the reasons one would think.  Victims need their story told, however the way the author did this book left a lot to be desired.  For one the blurb pretty much gave you the story.  Two it should have been expanded into a novel with a bit more back ground and action to it.  For me it was just a nibble at a story and then plop it was over and done with.  I hate to say it but if I had known that it was going to be like this, I would have not read it.  The story itself is just downright nasty to me, but not the topic.  The topic would have one in tears and pissed as hell, but the author made the story off a bit.  It was focused on Josh and Ed’s relationship a bit too much in my mind.  

Over all, this is one book that will not only not get read again, but will be deleted from my library.  That is not saying that it was not written well, but just read the book and you can guess my reaction.  I hate to say it, but this book was definitely not for me.

Blurb: Murder, kidnapping and a disappearance. Trooper Rick Anthis could use a break. But he hopes it isn’t too late in coming.

Rick Anthis, a forty-five-year-old veteran of the Colorado State Police and his husband, Gabriel Thorkelson, a deputy sheriff in a nearby county, enjoy the peace of their suburban Boulder home, but the neighborhood’s tranquility is shattered by three rapid-fire gunshots. The pair’s quick reaction allows Rick to witness the abduction of his eight-year-old buddy Jacob, by his father.

In their quest to find the boy, the clues are sparse and time is of the essence since Jacob is diabetic, a condition Gabriel is far too familiar with. A search of the father’s apartment yields nothing more than an old hiking map that narrows the search down to a few hundred square miles. Rick and his CSI team are on the hunt, but with every bit of progress they make, it seems they are thwarted, especially when Gabriel turns up missing. 

This is a second edition, previously published through a different publisher.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Fair warning that if you can’t handle domestic abuse, then this might be a bit touchy for you.  It actually is more than abuse but you can tell from the blurb.  

Rick and his husband Gabriel are both police officers, just in different sections.  Rick is a veteran from the Colorado State Police and his husband is a deputy sheriff.  They live in a beautiful location that is shattered when a young mother is murdered and her child is abducted.  Now it would be a normal case for our two sexy men, if that child was not only their neighbor but their little buddy.  Not to mention he and Gabe share the same condition, they are both diabetic’s, so they need to find him soon.

With that, there is another crime as well.  For such a short story it is action pact and very detailed.  I was surprised at how much was in this story and definitely would be looking out for more stories from this author.  It was one of the best I have come across and fell in love with our guys and that little boy.  Jacob rocked the story.  

I enjoyed reading it and would definitely recommend this story to all.

Blurb: An orphaned kitten may be the only witness to romance and the impossible.

Officer Alex Wolf responds to a lot of ‘paranormal’ calls that aren’t. Exotic pet birds aren’t monsters and unusual dog breeds aren’t aliens. It’s a good thing he likes the Animal Control officers, but he both yearns for and dreads those calls where he runs into ACO Jason Shen. Jason’s scent is so delicious that Wolf has a difficult time humaning around him.

Animal Control calls take a disturbing turn, though, when Wolf and his lizard-man partner, Krisk, discover the impossibly mummified bodies of rats and an unfortunate mother cat. The rescue of the cat’s sole surviving kitten not only gives Wolf more time with Jason, which is both perplexing and wonderful, but also leads to dangerous discoveries. Something inconceivable stalks the city and its officers of the law. Wolf has to figure out what it is before it can attack and drain the life from the people and the kitten he loves.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: This story is about Alex, a wolf who has more human traits than wolf. I loved his relationships with his adopted mother and his partner in the unit, Krisk. Alex struck me as a good guy who deserves the best.

However the so called romantic interest Jason I did not like. His attitude at times left a lot to be desired. I did not like his back and forth attitude with Alex nor did I appreciate the way he acted at Krash and Kory’s wedding. 

I did see the attraction Alex felt for Jason and I was hoping he would move on from him. This was my least favorite book in the series so far. It was an o.k. read.

Blurb: Finding a killer isn’t easy, but someone’s got to do it…

Detective Burgess Varley is called out to view a dead body. It isn’t one of the best things about his job—but putting killers away for the rest of their lives? Now that’s one of the best. Problem is, the victim has something in her mouth that has always scared Burgess—something that links him to the killer without him even knowing it. And that link is more than Burgess might be able to handle.

Detective Shaw Peters, Burgess’ partner for several years, loves Burgess in ways he perhaps shouldn’t. Or ways that Burgess won’t accept, anyway. But Shaw isn’t one to back down from a challenge, and as well as being by Burgess’ side on the hunt for a killer, he has his own mission to accomplish—getting Burgess to admit they’re meant for each other. It won’t be easy, but by God, he’s going to give it a try.

With Burgess and the killer learning things about themselves, their lives, and each other that they previously hadn’t known, life—and death—is about to become serious.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  I don’t even know where to really start this review.  This is one of those stories that will take you breath away if you let it.  It has romance in it, but it also has a very dark side as well.  I have not been a fan of these types of stories, but I have to admit that this one was damn good.  A little creepy but a very well written story.

There is nothing better than a man who carries a gun.  In this story you get two very sexy partners who have a damn gruesome murderer to find.  There are many twists and turns in this story that will have you on the edge of your seat.  You also get a cop that has a hard life in love with a cop that is more flighty I suppose.  One who is trying his hardest not to be in love, but you can tell that he definitely is.  

Burgess is a hardnose cop that does everything he can do to catch the killer, however these murders lead him to someone he had not expected.  A past that he had forgotten and a betrayal of one he had loved.  Then you get Shaw who leaves a wet towel on the bed, dirty socks on the floor, tooth paste on the sink and loves him no matter what.

I have not read many stories by this author but I have to say that this is one of the best psychological thrillers I have come across in a long time.  In fact I could see it being turned into a movie, it was that good.  Three murders that lead to three murders previously, one who was Burgess’s father.  The story takes you into a serial killer’s head and why he did what he did.  I guess he isn’t a serial killer but I felt like he was.  The creatures were a big impact into the story as well, a bit creepy if I must say so though.  After reading this story you can see how it got its title.  

This story caught my attention from the start and kept it all the way to the end.  In fact I didn’t move a muscle until I finished it.  I am not saying that I will keep an eye out for these stories, but this one does leave an impact.  I enjoyed reading it and look forward to reading more from this author.

Jude has a boring office job in a sunny but deadly dull Californian town. The highlight of his day is sitting home alone with pizza and beer. So naturally, when Neo wants to take off into the sunset, with Jude in tow, he doesn’t argue.

Neo makes up his own rules. Deciding quickly that Jude is the mate for him, he breaks into a beautiful beachside home pretending it’s his in order to impress the sexy man he’s picked up. He’s hoping things are going to get hot and sweaty between them real quick.

But the cops are onto them, and as Neo makes a run for it, Jude is hauled off to the police station. It’s not looking good, what started out so promising has now left a bitter taste in Jude’s mouth.

Will Neo come back for him? And if so can he explain why whenever the huge black dog is around, he’s not? And can he really throw his life into the air and see where it lands? These are all questions that Jude’s mind, body and heart need to know the answer to.

Reviewer:  Lisa

Review: Jude has been dreaming of a different life.  Taking a walk on the wild side, when a sexy man on a motorcycle leads him into a bit of excitement.  When Neo wants them to leave town, well you can guess Jude’s answer.  It would seem Jude is Neo’s mate.

Well this is the first book by this author I have read and I am not impressed.  There was more sex then actual story to it.  It is a very quick little story but the only difference in this one is Neo is a dog shifter.  Other than the cops there is no real excitement or danger going on.  It is just basically two guys going at it and a bit of a thrill on the side. 

I am sorry but this book definitely isn’t doing it for me.  It had potential but it failed right from the start.

Reviewer: Shorty 

Review: Mari and Jake are back in this exciting addition to the series as the two investigate a suspicious fire. Going undercover in a shadowy group could be the end of Jake if they don’t find out what is going on before they are found out.

Suspenseful, dramatic, danger and romance are all in abundance in this story. I was on the edge of my seat at times awaiting the outcome. I love how Jake and Mari are growing their relationship despite the dangerous situations they find themselves in.

I loved the investigation part of the story. It was interesting how they came up with their theories and went about determining if they were right or not.

Great read.
