‧:❉:‧ BLOG TOUR ‧:❉:‧ ~ ✴‧:❉:‧Take to the Sky‧:❉:‧✴ by Gregory Jonathan Scott ♡




Book Title: Take To The Sky
 Author: Gregory Jonathan Scott 
Publisher: Gregory Jonathan Scott LLC; 2 (October 14, 2014)
 Book Length: 255 pages 
Genre: Gay, Romance 

 Book Blurb: 
An angelic romance that’s Powerful, Suspenseful, Sexy, Uniquely Erotic, and Romantic. In a secret Michigan Laboratory, an experiment developed a superior creation that was anticipated but not expected. He was the ultimate conception, a core life-being merged with avian. He was born with a gift, a rare one; the ability to fly. His wings instinctively brought out the urge in him to fly, and Kellan's need to be free became his obsession. When the dark, swirling clouds loomed one night, Kellan abandoned the place he had called home, taking to the sky in search of his freedom and to seal his heart that seemed incomplete. Because Kellan's secret was too great for anyone outside the institute to know about, TC unleashed genetically altered Maniacs to bring him back. Through independence, his amazing reality brought riveting adventures to a man he found and couldn't seem to live without. They get tangled with hair-raising suspense that adds heart-pounding tension to every attempt they make at living their unique affair. They faced uncertainty so hectic that staying together was the least of their challenges, and it caused many of their bouts with passion to spiral in and out of chaos. Along their frenzied path to survive, hidden secrets surface about Kellan, prompting each move they make in order to truly set him free. Could Kellan's one true love and passion to fly be the death of him? It's a magnificently inventive adventure of menace, romance, and extreme erotic pleasures.


R Rated Excerpt

“Okay, I’m sorry,” Kellan said. “I only wanted your first flight to be memorable. Next time I’ll  go easy on you.”

“Ppphh! Next time?” Neil spat and started to walk away. “I don’t think so, there isn’t going to be a next time.”

“Get over here.” Still chuckling in a playful manner, Kellan reached for Neil’s wrist and  tugged. “Yes there will be, and I promise I’ll go easy on you.”

Neil jerked and spun into Kellan’s arms, hitting his chest hard. It seemed warmer this time and what Neil liked most of all was when Kellan wrapped his feathery wings around him for that added hug. And then there was the kiss. Another beautiful kiss that transported them to a world of their own and just like before, it was perfect.

Hardly a minute had passed when the thrill of the other’s touch set off definite arousal inside both their jeans that fought like hell to bust loose and connect in a way that only two men could.

Neil brought his hands to Kellan’s bare chest and stroked it. If he wasn’t mistaken, his chest wasn’t as smooth as it was before, maybe superfine feathers like the downy growth found on a newborn bird. It was shadow black where they were at and the darkness kept Neil from being able to tell for sure, but his exploring hands that roamed Kellan’s chest made him grow much harder than he was just seconds ago.

The low moans that came out of Kellan told Neil that whatever was happening between them needed to continue. When he felt Kellan’s tongue push between his teeth, he took that as proof that the angel wanted more of him.

Was it a good thing or a bad idea?  

The night air was still, too still, almost peculiar enough to be a bad sign. It was like the calm before an approaching storm.

Neil longed for more of Kellan, but wasn’t sure it was the best thing for them to do. The idea of getting wrapped up with an angel who just escaped a top-secret government facility might not be a good one. He desperately tried to put his mind elsewhere, anywhere but on the man he was kissing. Anywhere in the universe would do fine, but the thought change wasn’t working to save his ass – he was hooked.

Review

Take To The SkyTake To The Sky by Gregory Jonathan Scott
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I can say I haven't quite read a PNR like this one. Yes, I've read about mutated genes, experiments on humans, but not quite like angel/birdman, Kellan, and his "talent". A very erotic talent ;) 

The details in the book are extraordinary, just like the cover of this book. Which was designed by this phenomenal duo. Reading the story, I could actually  feel his feathers. I just want to snuggle in his wings. 

 Me being a Wisconsin girl, I know what Lake Michigan looks like, so I could seefeel, and smell the water and wind and their flights. I could feel the intensity when the Seekers and the agents came. Hearing and feeling the thumping of the chopper blades, all brought the story to life, it had my heart racing.

They way Kellan was written, he was beautiful and vulnerable and their love story was so, so sweet. What I wasn't to happy about, was they kept GOING back for MORE! I wanted to shake them and say FLY AWAY!!! and then it just ended!!! It left you on the edge of your seat. Of course I understand, it's a series and they left you wanting more. What's life without a little cliffhanger, right??
 I am not sure how it is going to play out, an ex- nurse with his angel, living free. I guess I'll have to wait to find out.

I give this book 4 beautiful stars

**Given as an ARC for my honest review**





I have to compare this book with an amusement park ride, stomach dropping wild ride, literally,  soaring across the sky to freefall diving into water this book has it all.  Breathe taking-ly told, I felt like I, myself was flying with Neil and Kellan.  This book takes off with a BANG, and never slows down; When Kellan decides to free himself to “Take to the Sky”  our journey begins.
Death defying acts of courage and blind luck take place while in flight.  I just can’t say enough about the action scenes, what a great job the author does to tell this story.   Free flying to flight battles with Seekers, I caught myself holding my breath and covering one eye.  Never have I read a story with such great action writing.
I give this book 4.5 stars!

Excerpt


David
RULE # 1
KNOW YOUR PREY

I RECOGNIZED his type the moment he first approached me—a typical love-’em-and-leave-’em. His kind swoops in, sweeps you off your feet, fucks you stupid, and before you’ve even had time to gather your wits, they’ve pulled up their pants and zipped their flies at the same time as they rush toward the nearest exit.
Now, don’t get me wrong—I have no problem with being fucked stupid. Rather like swapping roles, actually, when it’s the right guy. The right guy being older and more experienced, just like this guy is—but I want to be memorable. I want to be more than another notch on the bed post. You want to fuck me, you’re going to have to earn the privilege, and you’re damn well going to remember it. Fuck, you’re going to want to repeat it… again and again. Whether I let you is another story….
In the interim, I’ll hunt down for myself some cute, but forgettable, little twink to fuck stupid.
Which is exactly what I’ve been doing all week…

About the author:

Lily Velden lives on the east coast of Australia, her family having emigrated from Holland when she was a child.
She’s both a left and right brain person, holding qualifications in both Finance and Fine Arts. She tells her friends that her way with numbers will make her a profitable artist and writer… one day.
Lily has always had a love of language and a beautifully crafted sentence, and admits to having a fetish for collecting quotes, poems, and song lyrics. What she won’t admit to is how many notebooks she’s filled with those quotes… Her fascination carries on into her artworks where she often incorporates text. When a shoulder injury slowed down her art practice she decided to explore her love of the written word more fully and began writing. “I’ll paint my pictures with words.”
Not that she’s abandoned artmaking in its entirety—Lily collaborates on the designs for all her book covers.
There are many things Lily loves, here are just a few of the PG rated ones: a good laugh (all the better if caused by a naughty joke), the smell of freshly baked goods and mown grass, a smile from a stranger, rainbows after the rain, and witnessing a promise kept.

REVIEW~Blue Mountain by Cardeno C.

















Title:Blue Mountain
Author:Cardeno C
Genre: Gay/Romance/Paranormal

Exiled by his pack as a teen, Omega wolf Simon Moorehead learns to bury his gentle nature in the interest of survival. When a hulking, rough-faced Alpha catches Simon on pack territory, he tries to escape what he’s sure will be imminent death. But instead of killing him, the Alpha takes Simon home.

A man of action, Mitch Grant uproots his life to support his brother in leading the Blue Mountain pack. Mitch lives on the periphery, quietly protecting everyone, but always alone. A mate is a dream come true for Mitch, and he won’t let little things like Simon’s rejections, attacks, and insults get in their way. With patience, seduction, and genuine care, Mitch will ride out the storm while Simon slays his own ghosts and Mitch’s loneliness.


REVIEW
























































Blue Mountain (Pack, #1)Blue Mountain by Cardeno C.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love that the author took a wolf pack story and made it her own. Its always interesting to read the twists everyone takes on old tales.


In Cardeno's case, she has 2 alpha twins and one is mates to an alpha female, which is, in this story, unusual. Mitch being an alpha in his own right, but not wanting to lead, finally finds his Omega mate. A male, Omega, which is rare in this story. So, like I said, she took it and made it her own and I love that. On top of that, she tied it all in to make it a m/m story, and it just ....works.


Our little hero of the story, and might is add is a ginger, MY FAVE!!! Has a very sad past, that brings him back to Blue Mountain, where he meets his mate. Luckily Mitch is a strong alpha type, he holds his own against the stubbornness that is Simon.


I think these two were an awesome match and I thought it was a very cute story.





***Received as an ARC for an honest review***

I give it 3.75 stars

Strange Addiction by Sandrine Gasq-Dion

Brock Holloway has it all -- money, friends, a bitchin' car and a promising football career. At least, that's what people see. Inside, though, Brock is fighting for something he knows he can never have: Unconditional love. As the child of Aphrodite, he is worshipped, admired, wanted - but never loved.

Zack Duran is a wolverine shifter -- and not a nice guy. Zack's shifter side is always in control, often making him heartless and unfeeling. When Zack is assigned to guard Brock Holloway, his tactless wolverine tendencies become even more prevalent and Zack has to fight his shifter personality AND his genuine feelings for the beautiful football player.

A near tragedy shakes him to his core, and Zack can no longer fight the feelings he has for Brock. But giving in to his emotions may come at too high a price. A startling secret charges Brock with the nearly impossible task of taming Zack's beast. Is he up to the challenge? Can Zack give him what he needs? And with danger working overtime, can they finally be together as they were intended?

Best selling author, Sandrine (Sandy) was born in Inglewood, California. Raised by "Old School" French parents, she later moved to Tucson, AZ. It was there that writing became a hobby. Always told she had a great imagination, Sandy wrote short stories for her friends in High School. In college, she took more writing classes while working on her Criminal Justice degree, but it wasn't until a soap opera caught her eye that she got involved in male on male romances. On the advice of a friend, Sandy dipped her toes into the world of M/M Romance. Sandy takes the writing seriously and has had countless conversations with gay men as well as hours of research. She's been involved with the military in one way or another for over twenty years, and has a great deal of respect for our men in uniform. She's traveled the world, but has finally returned to Arizona.

There is now an Assassin/Shifter website!! Many thanks to the talented Jenn Watts for all her hard work!
If anyone has read a Sandy book then you become an instant fan,  I ran across her Assassin/shifter series after they were recommended to me in my book club.  Holy shifters I was hooked after the first book and quickly read all of the series,  and then she branches off to the 12 Olympians and what a great move that was.  I love a series that past characters keep making appearances, whether its the SkullBlasters or the wolf pack.  
We have been giving a little taste of Brock and Zack in the series in the past, so I for one was looking forward to their own story.  Mr. Mysterious Zack, a badger shifter has major anger issues (which we found in the book the reason) and thinks Brock the son of Aphrodite, is a complete and utter manwhore.  But can’t stop his cravings of wanting to sample the football player himself.
