WLK synopsis
 

  Wealthy, attractive Lucas Reika treats life like a party, moving from bar to bar and man to man. Thumbing his nose at his restaurateur father's demand that he earn his keep, Lucas instead seduces a valued employee in the kitchen of their flagship restaurant, earning himself an ultimatum: lose access to his father's money or stay in the middle of nowhere with a man he has secretly lusted over from afar. Quiet, hard-working Jared McFarland loves his farm on the outskirts of Hope, Arizona, but he aches to have someone to come home to at the end of the day. Jared agrees to take in his longtime crush as a favor. But when Lucas invades his heart in addition to his space, Jared has to decide how much of himself he's willing to risk and figure out if he can offer Lucas enough to keep him after his father's punishment is over.

REVIEW



McFarland's Farm by Cardeno C.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The book starts with shy, hardworking, Jared McFarland of McFarland Farms ((say that 10x fast!!)) and a conversation with his ex-wife. You can tell by their banter that they were and still are really close friends, and I thought that was a very sweet relationship. Well, the purpose of her call is for a favor for taking in her half-brother, who's been brewing up trouble for their father. They are sending him to Jared's farm for him to clean up his "party-boy" act. Of course Jared would never defy his ex father-in-law, out of respect for the man. But there is reluctance, it would seem, our big sweet Jared, may have an attraction to Lucas.

In steps spoiled, and privileged, Lucas. First impression? Snot-nosed brat. I wanted to smack the crap out of his disrespectful ass!!! Apparently, there is more than meets the eye ((or ear in this case))

Thankfully Jared is a bit more calm than I, I would have left his ass at the bus stop.... but alas, he didn't, and we get a story. A hot-hot, story ;)

 I would NOT be surprised if that narrator didn't have a red face almost the entire time. Reading it in your own head is one thing, but actually having it read to you?? That's a whole new level if steamy action right there!! I even had to ask Cardeno if she thought the narrator was blushing LOL

By the end of the story, Lucas really has grown up and grown on me, and his last line actually had me say "awwwww" out load. Such a sweet ending.

I think the narrator did an excellent job, you really "felt" everything. Almost like listening to a movie. This is quite a short audio too, about 2 and a half hours. I listened to it while I walked the dog and did house hold chores. I definitely enjoyed it and highly recommend it.


***Given an audio credit for my honest review***

4 blushing narrator stars!!!!

Dance with Destiny by Sloan Johnson


Title: Dance with Destiny
Author: Sloan Johnson
Genre: Adult, Gay Romance
Release Date: December 18, 2014

Tony DeLuca has to get to New York, nor’easter be damned. His older sister is getting married and it won’t matter to her if the entire east coast is shut down if it means she’s short a groomsman. She’s the only reason he’s willing to make the trip home to face a father who’s never forgiven him for wasting a perfectly good degree to become a firefighter. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to everything about Tony that his father will never accept. 

Dominic Tricoli’s living his dream. He’s spent the past few years working to mesh his business degree and love of the outdoors into a thriving company, providing team building retreats for some of the country’s largest corporations. Unfortunately, there’s a price to pay for happiness, and having someone to come home to at night is the sacrifice Dominic made. 

When Dominic overhears Tony’s plight, he’s drawn to help the man get to New York City. Little does Dominic know that one kind gesture will awaken a side of him he’s ignored for far too long. Against his better judgment, he gives in to his desires and Tony’s advances. Just for the night. 

When destiny steps in, giving him another chance with the charismatic man who saved his hide, Tony’s willing to do whatever it takes to earn Dominic’s forgiveness and understanding. There may not be forever, but Tony’s determined to enjoy every single minute he’s given with Dominic. 

You can’t fight fate. Whatever’s meant to happen, eventually will.



So much for never seeing one another again. Had I known that I was going to see Dominic this weekend, I might have tried harder to make things right with him Thursday night. If I’d realized the Cara he mentioned was marrying his college roommate was my sister, who I’ve always called Caroline, I wouldn’t have touched him no matter how much I wanted to. Actually, that’s probably not true, because he’s damn fine and I’m not stupid enough to pass up an opportunity when it presents itself. But I definitely wouldn’t have walked away until I knew that neither of us had any regrets.
I trip over my feet as I follow the rest of the groomsmen into the front of the cathedral, my attention focused on the man sitting next to Mr. and Mrs. Rossi, looking like he’s just been scolded.
Dominic was gorgeous the night we met, but now, he’s downright breathtaking. I take my place in line and, because God has a twisted sense of humor, I’m going to be stuck knowing that Dominic is directly behind me for the next hour and there’s not a damn thing I can do about it.
As we wait for what seems like forever for all of Caroline’s bridesmaids to make the mile-long trek to the front of the cathedral, I try to catch Kennedy’s attention. Thursday night, I told her everything. After telling her about the sexy-as-fuck scene in the truck, I went on to tell her how much it annoyed me that Dominic and I parted on bad terms. She agreed with Dominic that there was no need to feel anything since we’d never see one another again. When Kennedy finally makes eye contact with me, I nod ever so slightly to my left and watch as her eyes threaten to bug out of her head. “Oh, my God. Is that him?” she mouths. I nod subtly. “Are you going to talk to him?” she asks. I shrug, and catch the attention of my older brother, who is standing directly behind me.
“Anthony, quit talking to your girlfriend,” he hisses. “Caroline needs you to make her the priority for the next hour, then you can run off and find a quiet corner to do whatever it is the two of you do.” I close my eyes tightly before glancing at Dominic, finally realizing that he probably thinks the same thing I’ve led most of my family to believe all these years. The urge to elbow Peter in the gut to show him exactly what I think of his comment is strong, but I’ve already made enough of a scene. If he noticed, I’m sure other people have as well. And sure enough, Dominic is now glaring at me. He looks across the aisle and his entire body stiffens when he notices Kennedy sitting with my family. I need this wedding to hurry the fuck up so I can get a drink.
The music changes and everyone stands and turns to see Caroline and our father walking down the aisle. I take the opportunity to admire the way Dominic’s suit jacket hangs off his shoulders. The subtle pinstripes act as beacons, drawing my eye down to his narrow hips, and suddenly I’m standing in the cathedral with a semi, thinking about the tight ass beneath those perfectly tailored pants. Go straight to Hell. Do not pass Go, do not collect two-hundred dollars.



 



Sloan Johnson is a big city girl trapped in a country girl’s life. While she longs for the hustle and bustle of New York City or Las Vegas, she hasn’t yet figured out how to sit on the deck with her morning coffee, watching the deer and wild turkeys in the fields while surrounded by concrete and glass.

When she was three, her parents received their first call from the principal asking them to pick her up from school. Apparently, if you aren’t enrolled, you can’t attend classes, even in Kindergarten. The next week, she was in preschool and started plotting her first story soon after.

Later in life, her parents needed to do something to help their socially awkward, uncoordinated child come out of her shell and figured there was no better place than a bar on Wednesday nights. It’s a good thing they did because this is where she found her love of reading and writing. Who needs socialization when you can sit alone in your bedroom with a good book?

Now, Sloan is a tattooed mom with a mohawk and two kids. She’s been kicked out of the PTA in two school districts and is no longer asked to help with fundraisers because she’s been known to lose herself with a good book and forget she has somewhere to be.


REVIEW






My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really liked Dom and Tony's characters.
While I'm not a big one for insta-love, it seemed to fit in with the book title and the story line. At times, though, I found the dialogue a bit "cheesy", I also still found it to be a very sweet love story. A lot of the "scenes" are scorching hot, and I think the story had a nice flow.

Dom and Tony meet by chance at an airport and end up on a road trip to get where they need to be. Not knowing that the place they will end up is the same.

Upon furthering their desires, old sounds open for a broken Dom, making Tony realize how much he needs this man. Tony has been so far in the closet, he decides he wants to come out for himself, and Dom.

Things are VERY rocky for these love birds. More tragedy hits, far beyond what any one person should be able to handle. But, in the end, it all will be worth it for their HEA.

Through the Last DoorThrough the Last Door by J.A. Jaken
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a fun story. It had loads of detail and reminded me a bit of "The Last Samurai" meets "The Lord of the Rings".

It had a very huge Japanese undercurrent, which the author talks about at the end of the book, but in an otherworldly atmosphere.

Young Kaori is left the lands with his father's sudden death. Having been off at college in another country, he never got to say goodbye and ease his way into his " High Lord" role. He decides to get a better feel of the land and the 8 Lords, by going to visit each one.

This is where it reminded me a bit of LotR, the action/adventure portion. They set out to adventure and have run ins with strange "creatures" and evil-doers. Among their travels they encounter secrets which unfurl more secrets. It was fun trying to figure them out with Kaori and friends.

I thought the writing and story telling was brilliant, the characters were well developed. The villains very villainous and the Hero's had big hearts, they were hard not to fall in love with.

I know some like their stories "hot and steamy", but this story, you're not going to get that, and you're not even going to care. Of course the MC's come together as they should, but it in a traditionally pure romance and full of love kind of way. I thought their love and the " meaning" behind the story was heart filling and uplifting. Just an all around great read.

I give it 4+ stars

¸¸.•*¨*•BLOG TOUR¸¸.•*¨*•Here Comes Trouble by A.E. Via


Title: Here Comes Trouble
Author: A. E. Via
Publication: 11/28/2014 by Via Starr Wings Publishing
Genre:Gay/Erotic/Fiction

Detectives Mark Ruxsberg and Chris Green are very good at their jobs. Being the enforcers for God and Day's notorious Atlanta PD Narcotics Task Force causes the crazy duo to get into more trouble than they can often get out of. The pair never misses out on an opportunity to drive their Lieutenants crazy with their dangerous, reckless, and costly stunts, landing them in the hot seat in front God... often.


Ruxs and Green love their jobs and they don't mind the very demanding schedule that leaves them little time for socializing or dating. It was fine with them, they enjoyed hanging out with each other anyway. 

However, most of the men in their close circle of friends and colleagues are pairing off and settling down. God has Day, Ro has Johnson, and their Sergeant Syn has Furious. 

For the past several years, Ruxs has only sought out the advice and company of one person, his partner and best friend Green, and vice versa. Both of these alpha males are presumed straight, but neither can deny the heat that's building in their once 'just friends' relationship.

Boom, baby! Third part, still as good, still going strong.


I've been with these characters from the very beginning of their journey, and it's been one awesome journey.



God and Day are still badass. 'Nuff said. Syn's in it, Furi is mentioned. But the focus is on Green and Ruxs - it is their story, after all - but for me, the show was stolen by two other characters. I'm not saying who, you'll have to read and see. Thing is, I CANNOT wait to get my hands on that story. It had me swooning and melting from only a few scenes. Suffice it to say, I completely forgot about that hot son of a gun and it's good to have him back.



Now, this story was good, great even but still, I feel that neither book 2 nor this were as good as the first. This is, of course, my opinion. Still 4 1/2 stars, even though there wasn't any real major climax. There was one, yes, but it didn't pack the kind of punch I was expecting.



But still, the feels, the hot scenes - hoo boy - and the funny ones - not to mention Junior, my new fave coming back - made it a very good book I'd recommend to anyone. 



***Copy given by author in exchange of honest review**




I just got done and I'm feeling kind of swoony over a certain Southern Gentleman. *Googly eyes*


In the year that I have started reading A.E.'s books, she is one of my main go-to's, proving again and again why she remains high on my list. 



She writes an alpha male like no ones business, but underneath all the Alpha, there is personality! They aren't just big brutes walking around slinging their weight. They have humor, hearts, and soul. 



This book is about Greene and Rouxs, God and Day's "enforcers". It seems they like to run around the city and bang shit up, but, when they got a job to do, they get it done with whatever means they have to do it. Serious about their jobs and their partnership... and later on, about their love. 

" If he doesn't agree to date me, I'll simply veto his decision "



We get to see quite a bit of God and Day, thank goodness!! I miss them so much. God is just so dark and yummy and Day is so easy and HILARIOUS!! 

" Save it Ruxs. You got more bite marks on your neck than Edward gave Bella"
I think I almost peed my pants there!! It was so very Day, and the after conversation made it even better!



Green and Rouxs dynamic is off the charts hot, and when they add in Curtis, the boy they took under their wing during book 1, it is just the sweetest thing I've ever seen. It is like " good cop, bad cop", and such an amazing, and humorous, balance. 



Curtis, 17 year old blonde hair blue eyed angel, comes to know these fellas very well and even becomes quite a star in this book. He absolutely broke my heart! but a certain athlete comes in to make it all better *swoon*. I definitely smell another book, and I am oh so anticipating it. I'll be over here at the computer, biting my nails, impatiently waiting. 



So all in all, lots of alphas, suspense, drama, smoking hot scenes (surveillance scene, nuff said) and some of the sweetest caring partners I've ever read. 



AE gets a 5 cinnamon rolls from me for this work of sexy art ;)


Lights, Camera…..Action!  I get this same feeling every time a open a new Ae Via novel.  I’ve come to love anything that she writes,  badass HAWT alpha men that at times can be real smartass’.  
With this being the 3rd book in the Nothing Special series, I expected to get a little of main characters from the previous two books.  Boy was I wrong,  we were slapped happy with God, Day, Syn and just a touch of Furi mixed in
I loved the action scenes and especially the wise ass scene (Everyone is a comedian).  


But IMO Curtis stole the show,  I loved Curtis HARD!!!!  

Such a great character that creeped up on us from out of the blue.  Every scene I was mesmorized by his Sahweetness!!!!  This story had a different feel to it than the last books,  and I think this worked out just perfectly for this story,  really hated to see it end.  Hoping we get more Gen and Curtis in future books

I was given this book for my honest review

I give Here Comes Trouble 5 + stars!
