It has filled with wit, drama, and a whole lot of sexy. The Dalaneys & Me is a whole lot of awesomeness packed into 35 pages.
Liam is making a scene and it could cost him his life, but he doesn't care because his boyfriend Brandon is dumping him in the middle of a restaurant. Liam knows better than to cause a scene and embarrass Brandon, because he is the cousin to the Delaney twins. The twins take family seriously and Liam just seriously ofenced (I am so sure that is not a word, but it's my word). You see folks, the Delaneys are major crime bosses and Liam is about to have his kneecaps broken.
Liam knows they are going to get him and it's only a matter of time before they dish out his punishment. What he never expects is the offer to sleep with both of them, and how can he say no when the other option is being shot (not to die only to maim). Yep, the choice is easy. It's super sexy twin sandwich time.
I really liked this one, though I was expecting some kind of twincest (yes I like that sorta stuff) but rest assured there is no hot twin hook-up. However, I get the feeling that the brothers feelings runs deeper than brotherly love. I am really excited to see what Liam and the bros get up to, and with three more books in the series to go. It's gonna be one heck of a good time!

From what I have read of Lynn Lorenz, her characters are always so realistic. Its situations that any person could be going through. The struggle, the desperation, and the guilt that comes with feeling like you didn’t do enough. All that and more was apart of this story, and the romance just pushed it to a completely awesome kinda level.
Scott lives on the streets, and he’s had his fair share of tough times, experiences that no young person should have. Scott is strong though, and he tries to make it in a city destroyed but not ruined. The streets of New Orleans are dangerous, but there is a fierce pride in the aftermath of hurricane Katrina. Scott is living in a shelter he has a job, and he’s saving his money. So you see life isn’t keeping him down.
Tony lost everything in Katrina, his family and all the things he loved. He carries strong guilt, because he survived and his family did not. So why should he have anything. He’s done many things to make some money, and now he’s about to resort to robbery.
Scott and Tony meet for the first time, when a man jumps Scott to take his money. It is the very thing Tony was about to do, but changes his mind at the last minute. He comes to Scotts rescue, but hunger and surviving has him taking Scott’s money anyways. During the little crime gone badly, Scott and Tony are very aware of each other.
The chemistry between Scott and Tony is explosive, the contrast of their description electrifies. They pull you in, even though the relationship moves quickly, but ‘why the hell not’ they deserve all the happiness because they have been through so much.
The writing is amazing! Its like I was transported to streets of New Orleans, I could taste the food in my mouth and feel the chill on the deserted streets that Scott walked. I want to pack my bags and take a trip, it’s a place I’ve always been in love with, and Lynn makes me love it even more.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a love story, and it will make your heart feel super happy. I fell in love with Scott and Tony and you can too. I wish it were longer so I could have had more time basking in the awesomeness.

I really enjoyed this short, but lovely story. It offers up great conflict and a character that is sure to break your heart. I was just blown away by the many messages offered in this story. It can be interpreted many ways by each individual reader, for it brought back memories of being close to someone who never saw through, she is my friend and that’s all there is. I wish; I had the guts Brian had to make Tate (Talker) finally see him.
Tate aka Talker is covered in tattoos from his face down to his arms, all people see is the punk persona, and that Talker is gay and never hides it. Even through all his “I don’t give a fuck” attitude, there is a boy who is hurting and no one can see that. He is far from shy and will talk your ears off, hence the nickname. Talker is alone even with his very friendly attitude that is until he meets Brian.
Brian is our third person narrator, and it’s through his POV that we come to understand Talker. He never expected to fall in love with the chatterbox who sat beside him on the bus. It takes awhile for him to figure it out, and help is offered up by the most unlikely person.
This story is a rollercoaster of emotions, and it really pulled at my heartstrings. It’s sometimes hard to see true love when it’s staring you right in the face, and Talker makes some really bad decisions. He is so oblivious to Brian’s feelings.
The title is so clear; Tate is talker, not a listener or someone who pays attention. If only he had stopped to do both those things, and paid attention to Brian, things would have been easier. Therefore, Brian had to go and say “look at me, see me, listen to me”. It was quite intense, I never expected it to be and I was truly impressed.
There is still room to grow for both characters and would be excited to see them again.

Lee Brazil is an author to watch out for. I am just in love with the Truth or Dare series, Keeping House was adorable and sexy, but Telling the Truth is 'it' for me. It has two things that I love in M/M some twincest and a ménage relationship. I just wanna rip my clothes off and run through the streets (to be avoided at all cost), I just love it so much.
From the first novella Keeping House, we meet the Blake brothers at their weekly poker game. They all tend to get a little over protective of each other, but their closeness and love for each other is very apparent. Terry has just lost his hand at poker and its time for truth or dare, and the saying “the truth will set you free” has never been more right. Terry is the good one, he follows guidelines and has never done a crazy or out of character thing in his life until… He saw twin Dex and Trick.
Terry has been a little in love with them for a little over six months, and while fighting his attraction he can’t deny that he wants them something bad. They are so hot together and he wants in on the action. When Terry hits up a gay club in hopes of finding someone to take his mind off Dex and Trick, the outing proves unsuccessful in the club. He does get lucky though out in the parking lot (take your mind out of the gutter).
All three hook up and things seem all good until the twin have a run in with Terry’s older brother. They know they have found something good with Terry and it will be hell to just give him up. Terry is no pushover though, he wants the boys in his life and he will have them. Screw what others will say; screw what his family will say. Its time he found his own happiness.
I love every main character in this series. I love the strong family bond they all share. Because if you are important to one Blake brother you are important to all. It might seem like this book is about sex, but its not. It’s about finding that someone you love or two someone’s, and finally gaining acceptance for just being you. I recommend you read the first book in the series, because they both move together. Just a really cute fun time, and if loving your twin brother is wrong then I don’t want to be right (cheeziest line I'v ever written).
My only beef is that I wish it were longer.
4 Pants Off On the PL Scale
So I say this my friends "Go ahead and take those Pants Off"!

I don't think I want to make an attempt at writing an intelligent review, because I doubt it would express my serious feelings for this book. If you remember, I gushed about Vol.1, Vol.2, and I doubt I managed to express the awesomeness that is this series. I am just going to tell you why you need pick up every volume of this series and not wait a damn minute longer.
"It’s simply the best, better than all the rest".
Yeh it's a song but it works. This volume was a little different from the first two, because it has three stories instead of two. That means triple the power in overall pants losing.
In Dark Lady, we have the very sexy Silvio still hell bent on making the Russians pay for his hurting his boss and potential lover Stefano (read vol.2). And as the blurb says, he goes in all-hardcore as a woman. Silvio is sex on legs in a suit, biker gear, so just imagine the walking wet dream he is as a woman.
"If it’s worth it, let me work it. I put my thing down flip and reverse it. It doesn't matter if I have a penis"
Not actual words from the song, but you get my point. He rocks the Russian's world and then proceeds to take them out of it. Like a boss!
Dark Lady II, Silvio and Stefano get up close and personal. The men share a sexy erotic interlude, that had my iPad overheating and my pants doing the "bye bye bye" dance.
Now the third story was a total surprise, and it brought the heart failure. Dark Brother introduces us to Silvio's brother Franco, which had me thinking 'oh hell naw' I can't possibly handle two Spadaro brothers. No need to worry because Silvio is like a fingerprint, there's only one of him. This story manages to push the series in another direction, and it's a direction I like. Dark Brother brought the brotherly love, and I don't mean the baseball playing kind.
Just when I think I have cracked the code that is the Dark Soul series, Mr Voinov karate chops me in the face with a 'you don't know shit'. I feel like I am right on the edge of knowing, but somehow it isn't enough. If that isn't superb writing, then point me in the direction of what is.
This series might be about the mob, and crime and violence and all that, but it's driving force is Silvio. This phantom of sex on legs, and an insatiable appetite for fucking. Yet, I found myself sad for him, because I feel there is more to him than 'he is what he is'. Silvio just isn't that easy. He might be this sexual carnivore, but sometimes I felt like I was reading about a lost little boy (I could just be cracked in the head).
Overall, it's great! If you're a reader, that likes the darker side of things and enjoys a story that pushes the boundaries. Then this series is for you. I cannot rave about it enough.

This series picks up right after Silvio is sent away from his lover Gianbattista to help Stefano handle the Russian being on his turf. Silvio is not pleased with the decision but he knows his time with Gianbattista has ended.
Once again, we have two shorts in this book. The first being Dark Whisper which is all about Silvio and a phone call. Silvio gets a call from Battista, and although its hurts to hear from the man who sent him away Silvio appreciates the call. When Battatista brings up some purchases made on his credit card from a place called the Pleasure Dom, the phone call leads to Battastist and Silvio playing Dom and boy for the last time. It becomes and intensely erotic telephone call.
This story is all about the phone call and Silvio, though I have yet to know about this deeply sexual man. I enjoyed that it was hot but I cannot bring myself to love it. I feel that Battista is in the past though his impact on Silvio cannot replaced, its over and I wanted it to stay that way. I can’t complain because I got me some Silvio, and that man knows how to play. Whether it’s over the phone or in a hot tub, he plays hard.
In Dark Night, it picks up with Stefano. He is on the town with his wife, sharing a meal and just enjoying life. While he might be boning for Silvio, Stefano actually cares very deeply for his wife and wants her happy. While on their way home, their car is hit, the driver is killed, and Stefano’s guard injured. It’s the Russians and they want Stefano to give up his territory.
He is threatened and beaten up badly, and it that moment you realize he isn’t invincible. Just a man with a hard job, and works with hard people. Left broken and beaten, Stefano finds his way to a hotel and is found by Silvio.
The second story really came through for me; it was a glimpse into the softer side of both men. Stefano is clearly suffering and I think that with Silvio he can show his pain. Though my man Silv has carnal delights on the brain Stefano is just in too much pain to deliver. If the tables were turned, I believe Silv would be enjoying it, Stefano not so much.
Overall, I enjoyed the second volume in this tumultuous series of pain and mafia lifestyle. Though we got to see different sides of the men, I feel like we are a far cry from truly knowing them. Mr Voinov writes like no other, hard-hitting and unapologetic. I believe this whole series will be death of me (get ready for my obituary).

Mark has just been dumped by his boyfriend to be expected when he was caught cheating. Mark is broken and sad because he loves his boyfriend Craig, and he’s hoping that they can just move on from it. He’s been having the best of both worlds, the love and security of Craig and the hot carnal lust of Richard the man he’s been having an affair with. When both his worlds collide, he’s left in shock but he can’t deny that he wants both.
With Richard, the sex is hot and nobody does it better. With Craig, he has someone to do boyfriend things with, and most importantly, he can present him to the world. Richard is a man of god, and Mark will always be his piece on the side both figuratively and in actuality. When you’re caught between two men, the outcome is never positive.
It’s easy to call Mark a cheating bastard and say he got what he deserved. I honestly feel very sad for him. He’s in love with the idea of loving Craig, because its safe and he’s dependable. Though it’s Richard, I feel he really wants, but he’s grown accustomed to the situation. He’s his dirty little secret, his quick f*ck outside when the weathers nice. When it all ends, he puts on his collar and goes back to what he loves the most, being a priest. I feel that Mark both accepts it and loathes it and so he found someone who created a balance for him. It’s a sad situation for all three men, but I feel it's sadder for Mark. Richard will ask for forgiveness from his god and move on, and Craig might find solace and love from his family and friends. Mr Mark though is left with nothing.
My first time reading anything by Anne Brooke and folks it won't be my last. I always talk about short stories being worthy of novel praises and this story is one of them. Anne Brooke is an excellent writer with a gift to portray emotions on pages. Sometimes we don’t always get what we want, and we leave behind the things that we need. That being ruled by lust and desires can be nice but when the desire is sated, all that is left is emptiness. This story with a just a few pages was able to share that with me the reader, and if that isn't excellent writing? I don't what is!
I hope to read about Mark again because I feel that he deserves his happy ending, finding that one person whom he both wants and needs.

After reading A Life Without You, I knew that I couldn't hold off on reading Hot Hands. It's such a darn shame it wasn't longer, because those few pages made my heart feel super happy.
Some stranger is groping Casper, and he is on a mission to find the culprit. The mission is harder than he imagined because it could be anybody, when so many students surround him. Casper is in college, leaving his hometown to escape the memories of being bullied and is trying to make fresh new happy memories. So who could be taking advantage of him again? Moreover, why do the hands groping him feel so good, and is making him want things he is afraid to have.
So Casper is out to catch his 'Hot Hands', but his avid sexy feeler upper wants his identity to remain a secret. The idea is but frightening and thrilling for Casper but he is willing to trust and take a chance because being groped as never felt so good. When Casper finally gets intimate with Hot Hands he picks up on some clues, and the truth might just destroy him. Because sometimes the past catches up with you.
Hot Hands offers up such a great little read, the author took chances and I really liked that. The story touches on the serious subject of bullying, and can the victim and the bully as adults form some kind of relationship. It's a hard hitting, sexy romp of a read.
I would love to read about Casper and his 'Hot Hands'. I would really like to get to them better and they have so much to overcome.

It has two of my favourite things in the M/M genre, twins and a ménage. Though the twins aren't getting all up close and personal, it is still one hell of a freaking good time.
Liam is back with his crazy, and he cannot wait to see the Delaneys again. He is anticipating when they will call on him and he doesn’t have to wait long, because he is invited to their mansion for a little playtime. Liam is freaking out, because he doesn’t know how everything will go down on their turf.
It seems Liam must be the entertainment for the twin, and one of their business partners. That’s not too bad, because Liam is great at putting on a show, and what a show it is. Liam also expresses the things he wants, and proves he’s not just a body. He doesn’t mind being used, but it only has to be by the Delaneys. The Delaneys personality also starts to emerge in this story, and instead of being one entity they become Johnny and Mark.
The story is extended sex scene, but we learn a lot in this sex scene. There is so much that is explored and it has me anticipating the things to come. I want to know Mark more, the domineering and the one in control. Johnny the buffer between Liam and Mark, and he is incredibly sweet. I also want to know the story between Mark and Johnny. There has to be a story, their relationship is brotherly, yet it’s a bit more than that.
Once again, Anne proves her mastery at writing stories, and hot man loving. I want to know more about Liam and his two lovers. Will there be a relationship? On the other hand, will he just be a fuck they call, when he is needed? I am just anticipating more serious pants losing and murky waters ahead.

David is ready to go out and greet the world again, after losing his partner of many years to cancer. He wants to get back to dating, and maybe finding a hook-up for a night after being so long without. He decided to visit a gay bar, but he’s also afraid that he might not be what anyone wants. He is older, has no idea how to begin, and he might be sporting the deer in headlights look.
His night in the bar begins slowly, but he finally breaks a little free to flirt and dance and do a bit of making out. However, it seems he always keeps coming back to the cute bartender. He has no idea how to approach him and ask him to go home, but David finds his courage because it’s like this ‘if you never try, then you’ll never know’.
The bartender Jeff accepts his invitation for a night of play, but David is feeling like he might be in over his head. He might not be completely ready to move on, and being alone with Jeff is bringing on feelings of trepidation. Well not to worry, Jeff knows just what to do and gives David the night he’s been looking for.
This was a nice short, light BDSM story. I liked that David got to give up his control, because he spent so much time being the decision maker for most things in his life. The night with Jeff, he was man just along for the ride. The author possesses a skill to tell an entire life story with just a few pages, and only leaving you with the feeling of just wanting more. I wanted more, just to see beyond the night that David and Jeff share.
I never know what to expect when I go and read an Anne Brooke story. It’s often funny, mysterious, or a wide range of dark (like a box of chocolates, you just never know what you gonna get). I can say though, it’s always a good experience.

Jake Morrison is back on the BDSM scene, after being away from it for quite awhile. He lost a sub to suicide, and as a Dom, he should have been aware of what was going on with him outside of the scenes they shared (or so everyone else thinks). Suspended from the club Langley’s Pleasure House during the time, Jake is finally allowed back though the welcome might not be warm.
When the club owner Langley approaches him, Jake is afraid because he knows he will have to talk about the past and the night leading up to his sub’s death. What he never expected is the offer Langley makes, an offer to redeem himself as a Dom and to begin the steps to heal.
I just keep getting surprised by everything I read by Anne Brooke. They are like snowflakes; no two is ever the same. I enjoyed this story, but its one of those where it’s just too intense to be solved in a few pages (so thank the lord there is a sequel). I am trying to understand why Jake is being blamed for the death of his submissive. I guess he had some responsibility, but the sub did not die during a scene. Therefore, I am having a hard time accepting it.
Overall, I liked it because Anne Brooke is one awesome writer and you can just feel each characters emotions coming off the pages. There is nothing romantic about this one, its all about the control, and the intensity. So if that’s your cuppa? For One Night Only is story for you.(less)

Nik ‘Nikhil’ has a chip on his shoulder, and that chip is his hometown. Being adopted from India and living in a predominant white town hasn’t always been easy for Nik, and to make him even more of an oddity he’s gay. So he’s now the gay dark skin Indian guy, and the attention he got wasn’t always good. Now he’s home from college on a school break, and the only reason he comes back is because of his parents. Otherwise, he would stay clear of the place he grew up in.
Then he meets Jurgen Dammerung (sex on legs with a licence to carry) and Nik is instantly attracted, but he doesn’t want to end up the dark notch on another white guy’s belt. He’s feeling Jurgen though and Nik’s inner slut is saying go for it (his inner slut is fierce). He can’t deny the attraction he feels for Jurgen, and when the fires burn and a bike beckons, Nik just has to hold on for the hot ride.
I freaking loved this story! I laughed, lost my pants, and had heart failure all while reading the same freaking page. Jurgen… is like some kind of sexy and Nik I just love that snaky bastard. I can’t believe this story is FREE; I would seriously pay 4.99 for this (seriously).
The story moves with Nik not being confident that the relationship will last, which adds the right amount of angst and provide some conflict. It’s a hellaciously hot story, and I love the contrast of Nik’s darker skin and Jurgen’s lighter tone. The hand job scene is what dreams are made of. I love it!
Did I mention it was Free O_O, its mind blasting. This is the first story I have read by the author, and folks it won’t be my last. I am going at Anne Tenino hard (that sounds dirty), because I like what I read. Grab this one folks. A guaranteed pants losing!
