I enjoyed this second offering in the Conquest series, though a tad bit predictable and equally mushy. It was still a wonderful book about the sexiest rockstars eva. Evan and Jesse are back in big way, and it’s never a bad thing to visit them.
The relationship is established, but they still must keep it a secret from the public. They both struggle with hiding their love for each other, and its becoming harder for them, not to shout to the world that they are in love. It has the same feel as the first book, Evan and Jesse totally in love with each other. Others hating on that love and trying to bring them down.
A certain crush finally becomes known, involving the hater Trish. I just never really liked her and am so glad she is finally gone. I still don’t understand what it was exactly that made her fall in love with Jesse. Is it because he is a good singer, and really good looking? On the other hand, could it be that, he completely ignored you from the very beginning and you were hoping that Ur vagina would turn him straight? She just really irked me.
There is a serious conflict, and I thought it was dealt with quite lightly. The severity of the crime was no joke, and I was just hoping that the aggressors got more of an ass kicking. Or hope that they would drop the soap in prison. I think if you are going to, write something of that degree; the payout had better be good. I just wanted so much more; those bitches hurt my Jesse.
Overall, another fantastic instalment in the series. Jesse and Evan are fantastic, sexy, and downright sinful. Only once a month do I wish I was a man but these two would make me want to be one all the time. They are incredible, rocking out has never sounded and looked so good. The supporting characters are also back, some a lot better than others. Always a good time in the world of Conquest.
In The Flesh is a hard book to rate and a hard book to love, yet I am infatuated with the story and the characters. Let me tell you, that is no easy accomplishment because these characters are a bit vile and mostly stupid. Yet, it’s a great mystery and crime drama, small on the romantic aspect big on the ‘lets get it on’ all the time with mostly anyone.
Christian Flesh is a gay cop and he does not try to hide it, when he comes under suspicion for murder his life starts to go in the dumps until a certain sexy lawyer comes in and saves the day. What makes the story something kind of special are the incidents and sexual escapades leading up to Flesh being under suspicion. A colourful assortment of characters, add a great and fun mix to the story line.
We have the TV preacher, who goes on and on about homosexuality up on the pulpit, but has boy toys all over the city. The gay cop in hiding, who is a complete asshole because he swears he’s not gay. The street kid, with the heart of gold, and the very sexy lawyer. What all these characters have in common is that all of them have been inside Flesh, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
The mystery aspect of the book is well done, but not very hard to figure out. Its one of those domino effect kind of mystery, you hit one, and all go a tumbling. Flesh just does not know when to cool it, but its his stubbornness that eventually lead to good results, or should I say his penis. His sexual escapades make up most of the book, and in the beginning, I did not mind it, until he started to go overboard. It is different to be sleeping around when you are single; it becomes something else when you are starting a relationship.
Flesh and Colby (his lawyer) is quite hot, but I wanted more from both characters. I wanted Flesh to keep it in the pants, and I wanted Colby to stand up and tell Flesh to grow up already. If someone says to me, “I can’t promise monogamy”. My answer would be “then I can’t promise you, my dick in your ass”. Not some “just tell me about it after”. That shit pissed me off.
I did enjoy reading the book, its entertaining and fast paced. I really liked the interracial love, as Colby being a black man. I just love when different races get together; it makes my heart feel super happy. I look forward to other books in the series, in hopes that Flesh ceases to keep pissing me off.
SideNote- That cover, the person looks like a freaking ALIEN! (less)
I have no idea if this book was meant as a joke, or the author was serious. I am not saying this to discredit the authors work, but the writing and story was almost too unbelievable to be taken seriously. Yet, through all that, the book was highly entertaining and quite different from what I have read in the m/m genre.
Jacob Thieson lives in the boring ass town of Pembroke Eve, to stand out he decides to come out. So now he is that gay guy in Pembroke Eve, where he was initially avoided in the beginning, people have finally learnt to accept who he is, without completely understanding it. While getting ready for bed one night, Jacob witnesses a bright light and decides to investigate, on his way he bumps into two guys who also witnessed the bright light, and they believe it to be an alien landing on earth. That one night of discovery leads to an adventure Jacob was never expecting and finding love in the surrounding bushes while running for his life.
Seems that boring ass Pembroke Eve just got a little more exciting and Jacob has to save the day, and it seems the very reason that made him an outcast, is the same reason that will lead him to save the town with the help of a few close friends; some closer than others. It becomes a cat and mouse game of epic proportions between Jacob and his friends, and the less than pleasant aliens.
Here is what I thought the book was about judging by the cover. Sexy alien landed on earth, Jacob spots him and sparks fly and its chemistry. Yet there is an obstacle, they are from different species and it would not work and all that. That’s what I thought; I have no idea where those thoughts came from, because the blurb doesn’t even move along those lines (lol). I guess it’s a good thing that it went into a completely different direction because the book is quite unique. I even saw tentacles, but they weren’t even used for fun.
It’s a fun read, a little on the over the top side, mixed in with ‘that shit would never happen’. A massive amount of eye rolls, and sometimes a few unnecessary scenes, but what can I say doing all that might have been pure genius. I could not stop reading, and just wanted to know what kinda crazy thing Jacob would say, do, or think. I honestly look forward to reading the rest in the series, because it’s just never a dull moment in Pembroke Eve.
Warning: This book contains multiple partners, the best uses of blood. Some awesome human/vamp loving mixed in with a wolf. Nipple piercing, a Prince Albert, and the best use of leather.
This book was a trip, never expected it to be this awesmazing; but it was. Over 300 pages of vamp sex goodness and all that is in-between. It was action packed, sweet, and incredibly take your pants off sexy. The epidemy of what is vampire, the blood, the sultriness. Just a freaking enjoyable read that I had to gobble it up.
We meet Peter a bartender at a club. Has a best friend by the name of Jack who he occasionally gets naked with, but the friendship is strong people, cus sex between them is just sex. It seems that vampires exist in Peter’s world and he terrified of them, due to an incident at a club he once visited. Therefore, he is very wary of them. There is man who comes dancing at the club that he works at, and he cant take his eyes off him. To say he’s attracted is an understatement, but life has ways of fucking with you, and the guy Peter wants like nobody’s business is a vampire.
Lucien is a master vampire, with his own coven to run, but he see’s and wants Peter. Peter is scared of vampires, and Lucien is unable to change who he is. The attraction is mutual but there can be no relationship until Peter lets go and accepts that they aren’t the monsters he thinks they are, he just happened to witness that one bad thing. Lucien pursues him, and with a series of lows, he finally lands Peter.
Peter is thrown into a world of vampires, wolves, and sex. As Lucien’s chosen mate, he is instantly upped on the status bar. Seems that when you are up, something is always trying to pull you down. Peter has to prove he is able to stand by Lucien and all that his power entails. Also means he has to have sex with everyone who lives in Lucien’s home, and I aint complaining not one damn bit.
This book is sex with plot, or should I say porn (nope), that offers up great little twist and turns. And Lucien and Peter are quite entertaining with all their bed partners, and the way they constantly bicker at each other. Lucien is the uber scary but sweet master vampire, and Peter is his feisty little bonded mate. Together they just fit and it makes the book work. It’s the perfect gay vampire novel.
The use of sex and blood was just done perfectly, and never felt like too much. It’s like a throw back to what vampires use to be about, sex, lust and violence. It reminds me of Interview With the Vampire, if Lestat had bent that other guy over and all his other vamp friends(the dreams). I really enjoyed it and look forward to rest in the series. Something about all that blood (used in hawt ways) and sex, I am just really feeling right now. Enjoyed every page, and every man that was in Peter and Lucien’s bed and I was kinda hoping the author would have added a few more, there was teasing but it wasn’t delivered. Book 2 will hopefully create the awesome five, Peter, Lucien, Caleb, Xander, Christopher, awe bloody hell I could go on all day.
What a treat this book was, a first for me by both authors and I really liked their gritty writing style. The cover is ridiculously sexy and that alone was one of the reasons, why this book was calling me to do a little pants losing. It was like reading a classic crime/mob book, filled with drugs and sexy men who know how to carry a gun.
Gabriel Sandalini is an undercover cop, deep in the drug trade. All he needs is a little more Intel and he will blow the roof of the whole operation. A little meeting with an informant at a club, Gabriel is hoping for something good but the person he’s supposed to meet doesn’t show. Well, the night is not a complete bust when he spots a hot looking man, who looks like he knows how to take care of business. A quick hook-up turns out to be more intense than Gabriel expected, and a lot more meaningful. Though he knows this was only a one-night thing, and that’s how he likes it.
That’s until his one nightstand turns out to be a gangster himself, and second in command to one of the biggest drug lords. It seems Gabriel life is about to get interesting. Miguel Ortega carries himself with class and an air of superiority, and it irks Gabriel something fierce. It seems that Miguel is gonna be apart of the take down when Gabriel team moves in. If that doesn’t leave Gabriel feeling sour, seems all those emotions he never wanted is making an appearance, and for the wrong freaking man.
Well there are a few surprises at play here, and some seriously shocking ones I never saw coming. The book is divided into two parts, and part 2 is my fave. Emotional yet intense, sweet but also tragic. I fell in love more with each character in part 2. Not saying that part 1 wasn’t good and molten lava hot. There is something bittersweet about a scarred man and his return from the anger and pain.
I liked Gabriel’s character, just could have done without the sarcastic comments all the time. I just wanted a more serious and caring persona from him. Ortega aka Lorenzo is every woman’s panty wetter. He is delicious, Spanish and intoxicating like the Tequila, he loves to savour. Together they are a perfect balance of classy and street punk.
I could have read this book in winter and melted the snow all around me, a super hot read for the summer. Bring a small fan or portable A/C cus this book is a guaranteed burn. A definite pants losing.
Side-Lined (campus cravings book 2) was… it just was. I have these odd moments when I find things extremely hilarious that I don’t think was intended to be, and this book was one of them. I was just cracking up, and even through all its absurdity, I freaking loved it. The story moved quite well, and was entertaining, but what can I say I am bias cus nothing better than student and professor hooking up. That alone is worth 4 stars.
So Max had lover who died in a car crash in the car he was driving. Nick was his first love and losing him was a huge blow and moving on is very hard. Max has just been walking like zombie for the past two years, but that seems to change when he thinks of his professor; Alec Demakis. His body awakens and for the first time in years, he actually wants someone.
Well the story takes a turn, with the beginning of Alec and Max’s relationship. It’s all about the Dom/Sub but it’s quite tame. Their feelings develop quite quickly but it sort of works since both have been aware of each other for a long time. My only piss off moment was finding about that Nick that Max loved so much; his best friend of childhood who developed into his lover was a real DOUCHEBAG!
I don’t like to speak ill of the dead (I do anyways) but I wish that he didn’t die but remained alive so he could get the ass kicking he so rightly deserved. Fucking screwing around on Max and then moping. You should have just been honest and told him you wanted to be dominated and two subs together just does not make for a mind blasting relationship. Also Alec, you douche you should have also said something if you cared for him for so long. Left him a note, sent him an email all that shit would have worked.
Overall a short and fun story, about Max and his *Babas*, to know what that means you have to check the story out. The right amount of smut with a little story, perfect for an afternoon read. (less)
What can I say about Under My Skin that the blurb didn’t? I think it covered every element of this short story so I am just gonna share my thoughts on the book. I was a sweet story with a nice message and enjoyed reading it.
Sebastian is considered the” smart guy” by looks alone, he is actually a smart guy but he hates the label. Sebastian has a habit of picking bad men, and has sworn to stay away from the bad boy looking type, because they only bring pain. He has his own travel store, his neighbour store is a tattoo parlour, and he’s hating it but digging the owner. He knows that the motorcycle tattoo wearing type is bad news but he can’t help his attraction.
When a late night get together leads to hot sex with the tattoo storeowner Dylan, Sebastian is cursing himself in all kinds of ways, yet he is drawn to the bigger man and is hoping that Dylan will be his right decision. Until a misunderstanding leads him to jump to conclusion and might put the love affair to end before it even begins.
I really liked this short story it was quick and sweet. A few life lessons to be learnt here (yes there is life lessons in M/M romance/erotica). This one is ‘don’t judge a book by its cover”, ‘just because one orange in the bag is sour doesn’t mean that they all will be’, you know that kinda stuff. Sebastian was quick to judge Dylan because of his rotten relationship in the past and it almost cost him a chance at real happiness. In addition, deals with labels, because body art does not mean you are crude and stupid. Just one of many ways a person can express themselves. Overall, a very nice read.
