Billy is your stereotypical male, straight male that is. He dropped out of high school and is now working in the construction field, successfully might I add. Tests are not for him though, and he feels he can’t do better in life because he’s just not that smart. In the meantime, he’s made it his mission to take care of his parents financially, putting a lot of responsibilities on his shoulders. And if he’s not that lucky in love? Well, he’s not necessarily sweating it.
When his sister is getting married, and he’s just been dumped by his latest girlfriend, he is teamed up with a stylist to make him look more presentable during the wedding festivities. And it just turns out to be the gay guy from the coffee shop he frequents, whom he always thought was an attractive guy. In a very non-gay way.
This is a story of discovery for Billy. Him, the big and muscular construction guy may just be attracted to guys. It’s always amazing for me to read these stories and then not find a lot of turmoil in that characters mind. I would imagine this late in life it would be a struggle to come to terms with something like this. But not so much in Billy’s case. And it’s all thanks to the hot redhead, Shaz.
I loved Shaz’s character. He’s totally over the top, exactly what you would imagine that gay stylist that works on weddings, if you know what I mean. He is also very smart and caring, and I couldn’t help but fall for him almost as hard and fast as Billy. I liked their chemistry and the fact they both give as good as they take. They take care of each other. Both in and out of the bedroom.
I always come to Tara Lain for a sweet and a bit over the top LGBT read. And she delivers with this new series! KNIGHT OF OCEAN AVENUE was a sweet and adorable gay-for-you story! And definitely leaves me wanting more of this series....more

After reading some m/m scenes in the Killer Instincts series by Elle Kennedy (and holly wow!!!!) I HAD to jump on this one as soon as I saw it was happening. I have never read anything by Sarina Bowen before (and that’s about to change) but I was intrigued to see the dynamic of Elle writing with her. I am always intrigued to see in what ways an author’s voice can change a bit with every different story they write.
But let’s to the meat of things, shall we? :) For starters….. YOU NEED TO GET THIS BOOK! I devoured it, literally. I couldn’t get enough of this story. The characters, the bit of drama, the romance. Acckkk! I absolutely loved these two.
So Jamie and Ryan were best buddies at hockey camp growing up. They only saw each other during those summers but quickly became best friends. As the years went by, the friendship developed into something stronger at least for one of them. Now they are done with college and both of them have good possibilities of playing professional hockey and they are once again face to face with each other. All those feelings come rushing back to the surface and you definitely want to be there to see those sparks fly!
If you’re scared about this being m/m and you haven’t dipped your reading toes into the genre then I would say this is the PERFECT place to start. It’s such a sweet Gay-For-You romance, very character driven and it has such a wonderful story line. You will easily fall for both of these guys and be rooting for their HEA desperately by the end of the story.
Now let’s leave the sweet aside because this is also extremely HOT! Like handle with care….hot! You won’t be disappointed with the steam on this one. I’ve read some hot m/m before but these ladies can do it well and with the best of them. I sometimes find that some authors write m/m scenes as if they are just replacing a woman in that role. This is not the case with this book. Perfectly executed.
But ultimately, this is such a wonderful read for me because I just came to quickly care for Jamie as well as Ryan. I was invested in both of their lives. They are both dealing with different issues, coming to terms with where their lives are going. Making tough decisions not only about their sexuality (since Jamie is straight up to this point), but also dealing with the people around them and the prejudice still felt in today’s society. All around this is a wonderful story and I can’t recommend it enough.
Roni Loren really can do no wrong. There is something about the way she makes you fall in love with her characters that blows me away every4.5 stars
Roni Loren really can do no wrong. There is something about the way she makes you fall in love with her characters that blows me away every time. No matter the heat level of the story. YOURS ALL ALONG was very different than a lot of her books. It’s a bit more bittersweet in a way and not as scorching hot as some of her other books. But I fell for Hunter and Devon from page 1 and couldn’t wait to see them get their HEA.
Meet Hunter. He’s engaged to a beauty queen, comes from an influential political family and is also a baseball superstar. But is he getting cold feet or realizing that what he wanted all along is now completely out of his reach? No one knows he has been in love with his best friend from college, and has stayed in love with him even when he hasn’t seen him in four years. Every one thinks he’s completely straight. Until his fiance sends him to find Devon and ask him to be his best man. Things can only spark up from there!
I usually tend to enjoy stories that are told step by step in two different timelines, and in YOURS ALL ALONG I enjoyed the hell out of that. We slowly meet both characters, what makes them tick, what got them to that point. It was a beautiful way to get to know the characters and it only made me burn to see them happy together. Their chemistry, their friendship, their banter, their connection. Everything about these two draws you in. They are so comfortable and complement each other so well.
Did I mention how much I love second chance romances? THIS was an amazing story of second chance at love. Because I couldn’t help but want them get that closure for how things turned out in the past, and get to be happy like they never could backthen. Beautiful job. Ms. Loren! I wasn’t expecting anything less....more

I’m not quite sure what I was expecting with this book. For sure more romance than I got. I haven’t read the previous books in the series so I’m not sure if this is how they all are, but this reads more like a mystery than a romantic suspense. There was very little focus on romance, especially being that the couple is already together.
Chris is a detective and Ethan is a teacher. When a series of murders centers around professors/teachers, Chris has to find the link between them all and that seems to link back to Chris somehow.
Here we focus on solving this case. And while I normally like that, I think the overly forced mentions of the fact some of the characters are gay was unnecessary to the story. As well as something was not quite perfect on the suspense for my taste.
It was a decent enough intro for me to this author, but I think it may just be a pass in the future.
Stories about fated mates are probably the only ones where insta-love is ok. Even so, BLUE MOUNTAIN uses this concept nicely. Alpha wolf Sim
Stories about fated mates are probably the only ones where insta-love is ok. Even so, BLUE MOUNTAIN uses this concept nicely. Alpha wolf Simon is on his old pack’s territory when the alphas brother, Mitch, catches him. Mitch immediately recognizes him as his mate while Simon has been hiding his nature for so long, it takes a little bit more time for him to come to terms with the fact they are now destined to be together.
This is a short story and centers around that coming to terms and understanding that Simon now has someone that will care about him. He’s had a rough life, always thinking of himself as weak instead of seeing the importance of an Omega.
While this story focused on the main couple, I feel it lacked a bit in the world development department. We don’t really get to see a lot about the Pack and I was looking to get a little more invested in that aspect in order to connect with the series.
If you’re looking for a sweet romance, focusing on love and healing, then this will be the right choice for you.
It feels good to be back in the ACRO world. Why does it ever have to be put on hold? I could read this series forever! I love the X-Men prem3.5 stars
It feels good to be back in the ACRO world. Why does it ever have to be put on hold? I could read this series forever! I love the X-Men premise, the super powers, the battles and the hot sex. What more can we ask for!? I pleasantly surprised to see this book pop up when I least expected. By now it’s been a while since I read the last one and I honestly can’t remember if any of these characters were featured in the previous books. With that in mind, I still managed to enjoy this book a lot.
Tag and Justice have been friends since childhood. Both born from mothers that were experimented on, and both with powers they didn’t know exactly how to control. As they grew up, they grew apart in the paths they chose to lead. Justice went to ACRO and Tag decided to continue solo. This was the wedge in, not only their friendship, but their love affair. However, they’ve never fully gotten over one another. When Tag finds himself in a bind and needs Justice’s help to get out of it alive, deep buried feelings also get stirred. And when that stirring happens, after all the betrayals, it’s simply explosive.
There was less action in this book then I expected. It focuses more on the romantic relationship. Tag and Justice have a lot of years of heart ache to get past, but they seemed to get over their differences pretty quickly. Then you throw Ian into the mix, and I didn’t know where to look first. Ian was the man that picked up the pieces left of Tag after he was broken hearted about Justice going to ACRO and leaving him. But he was also the man responsible for the danger Tag is in now.
The sexual chemistry between these 3 is palpable. I just wish these would’ve been a full length book. I think the forgiveness was rushed. And the setup of this threesome was also rushed. These 3 men had some serious trust issues to get over and that happened to quick for my taste.
It was also nice to revisit with Dev, even if it was for just a second. I miss him and Creed and Annika and I can only hope that in the future these authors will give us more glimpses of them in action! I am left anxiously awaiting the next slice of ACRO I can get.

Let’s call this my surprise introduction to Kindle Alexander. I’ve seen these books around for a while and I have to confess, the cover whore in me always loves the covers. But I’ve also seen the books hyped so much that I was really nervous to read them because, quite frankly I was expecting a let down.
With that mindset going in, DOUBLE FULL grabbed my attention from the get-go. I’m a sucker for m/m college stories, especially if they involve sports. Another great thing about this was the gay-for-you angle. First we have Colton Michaels, the star of the team. He’s straight, he gets all the girls, he’s got a bright future in sports ahead of him. But he can’t seem to stop thinking about the hot male cheerleader, Jace. Except one night he decides to go for it and takes everything he’s ever wanted from Jace in the locker room. Then takes him away on a 5 day vacation. The best 5 days of his life. But life has a way of ruining that happiness and his father forces him back on the straight path and onto the NFL.
A decade later, Jace owns a successful cheerleading school and Colton is a star quarterback for a team. But both are having less than stellar personal lives. Maybe it’s time they both come to terms with the fact they’ve never gotten over each other.
DOUBLE FULL is HOT! Jace and Colton were hot then and they are hot now. It was also cute to see them tiptoeing around each other at times. Colton has managed to seriously hurt Jace in the past, and I was also happy to see that it wasn’t just “hey let’s forget everything happened and live happily ever after” for these two. I would’ve still wanted to see some more groveling, but that’s just me. Colton has also gone through a lot and even though it took a while for him to find the guts to do the right thing, he still did it with style in the end. ;)
The brief glimpse at the end about Mitch definitely has me interested in the next book and I will be reading it soon! It seems it’ll be a completely different feel than this one because of the storyline, but if the writing is as good as this one, no problem! I will be reading more by Kindle Alexander for sure in the near future, another addition to my must read m/m authors list....more
I absolutely LOVE revisiting couples that we've already fallen in love with in a series. FOREVER STARTS TONIGHT brings us back to Jace, Evan and Andr
I absolutely LOVE revisiting couples that we've already fallen in love with in a series. FOREVER STARTS TONIGHT brings us back to Jace, Evan and Andre and shows that a permanent triad has its own special set of complications. And that it will take commitment and effort to make things work. Their road to a HEA is harder than most couples because of juggling the inner dynamics of their triad, as well as what others perceive of their relationship.
Feelings can be a touchy thing. This book goes to show you that. And maybe what you always assumed you didn't want or need becomes a priority. As you may be aware, I'm a fan of the series, and have come to care for these characters! It was refreshing to see them be strong through the struggles of life. There are many important issues at hand in this book, and even when facing uncertainty they pulled through and didn't stray. If there's something I hate is unnecessary drama and lack of communication. Ms. Loren managed to share this story without falling into the easy traps where this could've happened.
I feel that after FOREVER STARTS TONIGHT there is a true happily ever after in their future.
These three are still one of my faves. Well, I do love them all. I'm somewhat of a Roni Loren addict. But stories like this is exactly why. They go past being just a hot way to spend the time. They move you, connect with you. And she always does right by her characters. Another job very well done with this one!
I always love a Roni Loren book but NOTHING BETWEEN US was A-Ma-Zing. It’s probably one of my favorite books in this series, and that’s a tall order
I always love a Roni Loren book but NOTHING BETWEEN US was A-Ma-Zing. It’s probably one of my favorite books in this series, and that’s a tall order because I love every single one! Roni Loren has such a talent for telling stories that it captivates me. And this was an unexpected one. I wanted to read Colby’s book but I wasn’t anxious for it.
We’ve met Colby throughout the series, and we always see him as the third, or the big bad Dom. But there are so many layers to Colby to peel back in this book. I love how complex he is and I’m so happy he gets exactly this HEA because it fills in all the spots he needs. He needed this triad relationship, and he deserved to be happy.
I always feel that writing a permanent menage story can be tricky because you really have to feel a sense of connection between all three, but at the same time that same connection should be individual as well. And I rarely see that done as well as Ms. Loren did in this book. There is a thread that binds them together and the chemistry when they are together is off the charts. But at the same time when it’s just two of them, it tugs at your heart just the same. Excellent job!
Keats was Colby’s student years ago, and back then he was coming to terms with the fact that he was attracted to Colby. Discovering this notion that he may be gay, experiencing the rejection and ridicule of his own father, and Colby’s rejection, was too much for Keats and he ran away. Colby has always carried the guilt that Keats may be dead because of how he handled the situation, that maybe he could’ve done more for him. So I especially loved the fact that this reunion happens, and that Keats gets a second chance to get the man he loves and idolizes. And don’t confuse anything I just said with lack of strength. Keats is total alpha male, he just melts for one man.
Then there’s Georgia. She’s Colby’s neighbor, a writer, and a woman that’s been hurt by her past. Her ex-boyfriend went psycho stalker on her and killed her sister and friend. All because he was the only one that could have her. While he’s in jail and she awaits going back for the trial, she’s been just hiding out inside of her house. And spying on her neighbor’s sexcapades through her window. Colby and Keats together are exactly what she needed to come out of her shell and accept who she is, what she likes.
NOTHING BETWEEN US is intensely emotional and brings the heat to a whole new level. There are so many taboos broken and limits pushed. And as a reader of erotic romance, I couldn’t ask for more! Student/teacher relationships, voyeurism, exhibitionism, a triad, a sadist. There were so many elements to this book that that go much deeper than the superficial or just sex. Now don’t get me wrong, the sex is BEYOND hot. But the storytelling is what will keep you wanting more of Roni Loren.
Are you still not reading this series? You need to!

I’ve enjoyed the humor and all around fun it’s been to read Tara Lain in the past. Her stories usually have just enough heat, and quirky enough characters that keep me entertained and reading more. THE PACK AND THE PANTHER fell a bit shy of that for me. It’s entertaining and I love to see a wolf shifter that is looking for a male mate and going against the norm of the pack, but I didn’t really feel the connection between Cole and Paris.
Paris on the one hand is the type of MC that I like to see from Ms. Lain. He’s out and proud. A bit of the outcast, and on the inside suffering from bottling all that in. For as extravagant his persona comes across, there’s a lonely man on the inside that needs to be loved. And he wants nothing to do with the pack. Cole is the opposite. He’s been groomed to be alpha, and has issues going against family and pack and coming out officially. Willing to sacrifice himself and marry for the good of his people.
I think I would’ve loved this setup, but maybe the fact that this is a pretty short story didn’t give the author enough time to sell me on the connection between Paris and Cole. It’s lust at first sight, but I wanted the rest to have more substance.
Nevertheless, it was still an enjoyable read and I will give another try to the next book in this series. But this just reminds me that I should catch up on the rest of her books I still haven’t read!
Finally Travis’ book! He’s had a rough go at it throughout the series and I have fallen in love with him from the very broken beginning. All3.5 stars
Finally Travis’ book! He’s had a rough go at it throughout the series and I have fallen in love with him from the very broken beginning. All that hidden suffering was festering and I couldn’t wait to peel back the layers and get into his mind! He’s been in love with his best friend Cassidy for a while but when he finally made a move Cassidy ran scared. After losing Cassidy, Travis met Ashley and while he really liked her he couldn’t let her into that darker side of him.
Now Ashley is back in town, wanting to stay and maybe rekindling her romance with Travis. She’s asked Travis to let her be his shadow for a bit while she paints and prepares for a gallery show with her art. When he’s sent in his cousin’s Karen’s place to set up camp, Ashley goes with him for the summer. Except he wasn’t expecting to find Cassidy there. All those old feelings come back, and new ones that include both Cassidy and Ashley.
The long wait was worth it because Travis was smoldering! The chemistry between all the characters in this book had steam coming off the pages from the very beginning. But as much as I enjoy a good, hot, sexy read… I never fully immersed myself into ROCKY MOUNTAIN FREEDOM. Maybe it’s my own preconceived ideas because I was never a fan of the heroine, Ashley, from when Travis was dating her in the previous book. Probably that is just the right kind of heroine for him, that would be ok with the scenario that Travis presents which is that of a permanent menage with his guy crush. But I just couldn’t connect with her.
On the other hand, I was all about Travis and Cassidy. You should’ve given me a book about those two hot alpha males ending up as a couple and I would’ve been happier than anything else. Cassidy is the one that takes care of Travis in that deep, emotional level he needs. They are just so hot together and there’s so much angst, the push and pull of Travis getting Cassidy to open up and let him in. I was eating up all those bits we were getting.
I was very happy that the book didn’t end with them deciding to give their triad a go and leaving all the family and society issues aside. Ms. Arend takes us on the journey with them, the dirty looks, the attacks from the community, the discrimination. At the end of the day, their relationship won’t be easy and they will always have things to deal with. But this shows the support of the Coleman family will be there through everything.
Even though I could’ve done with a classier heroine, I still enjoyed this book a lot and I’m anxious for so many other storylines to come! Jesse of course but also Karen. So many possibilities that Vivian Arend isn’t writing fast enough to keep me happy!

What an unlikely couple Mitch and Sam are! They lead completely opposite lives but they are so compatible otherwise. Mitch is older and has lived his life and explored his likes. Sam just has the burning desire to do so. The first time they meet and what should’ve been a “one night stand” turns into more when they can’t stop thinking about each other.
Mitch is a trucker passing through town with a delivery. He sees Sam, who is just a young college boy working at his uncle’s pharmacy. His parents died and left him in the care of his aunt/uncle and they haven’t been kind to him. I felt for Sam the whole time because he hasn’t had a chance to be truly happy. Yes, he’s a bit whiny. OK a lot sometimes. But that’s something that is to be expected because of his age.
This book is raw and dirty, but also deep and emotional. This book is more than just the physical BDSM. Sam has a need to be used, maybe even like a whore, more so than any actual spanking or rope play. It’s how he deals with those feelings in a world where you’re supposed to have enough self respect not to want that. Don’t get me wrong, the sex is still pretty damn hot! It’s just more intense when you take in the reasoning behind some of the stuff.
The threesome and the whole Randy dynamic… I wasn’t such a big fan. I am a bit confused as to what all went down between Mitch and Randy in the past and what their relationship really was. I get that it never worked out that way but it was still just a bit fuzzy. I would’ve probably liked better a random threesome with less of the emotional attachments. However, again, it was still hot.
I loved seeing Mitch and Sam opening up as their travels together continued. And they got to a point where they knew they could make something work. And work it will take!

WOW! This is the book of unexpected events. DELAYED PENALTY had a lot of twists and took me on an emotional rollercoaster. Anytime we deal with damaged characters you know it’ll be an emotionally draining story, but surprisingly, I didn’t get that much angst because of Akira. There was so much more to this story. I think the author does a stellar job with giving us everything we want from our main characters, while expanding on quite a few of our old favorites and intriguing us in the future of the series. I’m totally hooked!
First of all, there’s Akira, Ford and Cort. I was so scared about this combination because I’ll be honest I haven’t been a Ford fan. But Akira has really come out of her shell and there’s a lot about Ford that we didn’t see before. He truly cares for her! Then there’s Ford’s relationship with Cort. They’re both so intense. Their life-long friendship between them makes them work that much better. I think they were a great pairing, full of intensity but also tenderness.
But as much as I enjoyed their story, I was a sucker for two of the side stories. Vanek is a train wreck. And a train wreck I need to see more of. Desperately. Throwing Raif in that mix left me wanting more.
Then there’s Landon/Dean/Silver. I was troubled with how things were with them in the previous book and this is the story that brings them back together. I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THAT! But it’s also the story that takes their relationship to another level. I am so excited about that I have to confess I may have re-read those scenes.
But this book isn’t all roses. I won’t tell you in detail what happens, but we do lose someone. And yes, it’s hard and it’s felt throughout the team. I was so shocked about the turn of events. I do find that storyline in the end closes the chapter of the ongoing bad guy we’ve had in the series. I am actually excited to see where the series continues from here and I’m very anxious to get more Vanek. Like….yesterday!

Lauren Dane is back visiting the Cascadia Wolves! Although we’ve never really left them 100%. We had some De La Vega Cats stories and of course, the Bound by Magick series expands on this same world. But we are finally back on familiar ground, while still taking into consideration the events in the books of those spin off series.
UNCONDITIONAL mixes the wolves and the witches. That was the first thing I was extremely excited about while reading this book. I love when the couple has a witch and a shifter, they’re my favorite kind in this series. But not only do we have a great pairing, we also have a second chance at love story. And Ms. Dane is so good at those!
Michelle and Josh were high school sweethearts. Human high school sweethearts. Until Josh just up and disappeared leaving Michelle high and dry to go on with her life without an explanation for his sudden change of plans. What neither of them knew was that this supernatural world they were just entering into, on their own, would bring them back together.
Josh was bitten and turned into a werewolf and Michelle was always a witch, just one that didn’t know what she was nor did she know her potential. She is now a cop and Josh is an enforcer. It was enjoyable to see Michelle slowly learning about her magic and what she could actually do, even push herself to do things she didn’t think she could get to. And then there’s Josh. He was all alpha male and completely delicious. Just the way I like ‘em. And while he was dealing with his protectiveness and wanting to keep Michelle out of danger, he was also good at giving her the trust and space she needed to still be herself and do what she wants.
I loved seeing the rekindling of their relationship. How their feelings quickly fell back into place. They had an ease being around each other, a certain level of comfort. They knew what the other wanted. It felt like slipping under a comfy blanket. They were just perfect for each other. They’ve both changed so much but they are still perfectly compatible. And throw in the fact that Michelle is his mate…Josh made out 100% on this one. He gets a second chance with the one and only woman he loved and he gets to keep her forever this time.
The plot continues to thicken when witches are being hunted and killed. The witch higher ups as well as the National Pack are getting involved in this one as well and the final struggle is left open ended. I was expecting a bit more of a resolution on that but there is too much to wrap it all up with a neat bow in one book. I am anxious to see where these characters will go next.
For new readers, I wouldn’t recommend you start here. It may be a decent read as a standalone but I do think you would understand more of what’s going on if you read in order. And by reading in order I mean including the spin off series.

I’ve been wanting to read a Kate McMurray book for a while now and even though I have 2 sitting on my TBR shelf, when this came up for review I couldn’t resist. Of course, the cover whore in me also jumped at it because it’s just an adorable cover.
And the book had a lot of that feeling. It was a cute and sweet book, with a touch of funny as well. Starts out with Tristan getting an invite to his ex-boyfriends’ wedding. It’s been two years since they broke up but Tristan hasn’t really started dating other people. Now he is in the awkward predicament of having to go to the wedding and doesn’t want to show up dateless.
Enter online dating. As he goes on some weird dates trying to find the right guy to bring to the wedding he stumbles across an online profile for his VERY STRAIGHT best friend, Darren. Turns out Darren has known he was gay for quite some time but because he was attracted to Tristan, he was waiting for the right time to tell him he was gay and make a move. Well that time is now.
I always enjoy a best friends to lovers story. And this would’ve been PERFECT! If it hadn’t been for the fact that a lot of times it felt as if Tristan wasn’t over Stuart (the ex-boyfriend). He spent a lot of time worrying about Stuart and what he would think and how to impress him instead of enjoying the getting to know Darren more part.
Although I still thought they were very cute together, there was a little something missing to make this perfect. Still a very enjoyable read and has me wanting to read Kate’s books sitting on my shelf faster!

This was a cute story and a bit closer to what I liked about Andrew Grey in the past. We have a young professor, Brendon, who is too smart and too involved in his work. He’s that awkward guy that is not very comfortable in social situations, mainly because he’s never been living in “the real world”. For him, it’s all about his research.
I love when that type of guy ends up falling for the jock. And that’s Sean. He’s the assistant football coach and is immediately taken with Brendon. There’s something incredibly sweet about Sean drawing Brendon out of his shell.
ORGANIC CHEMISTRY seemed real. About two real characters who had already been out but still had other issues to deal with. Sean also deals with acceptance in the football team that one of their coaches is gay. Just as Brendon deals with work issues as well.
I am happy to see another cute story by Mr. Grey and I am looking forward to my next read.
Wow! What can I say? I knew I was going to love this, I just didn’t know how much and how deep it would be. Ms. James blew me away with these stories
Wow! What can I say? I knew I was going to love this, I just didn’t know how much and how deep it would be. Ms. James blew me away with these stories! I think I could read about the McKays forever! As I was reading this book and chatting with a friend, I noticed I had a lot of *THUD* moments while reading. I guess, as she cleverly mentioned, this is an uber-THUD book. That alone should help make your decision on getting it. THIS IS MUST READ!
King of Hearts – 4 Feathers
I had already read this story last year in the GUNS AND ROSES anthology. A bad day in the life of Cam McKay as a cop. He’s called in to the scene of a murder/suicide on Valentine’s Day. He went to school with the husband. They seemed like such a happy couple just days before. Cam has to deal with the parents, the investigation, and the fact that the reason why this all might’ve happened is because the husband never recovered mentally after coming back from war. A lot of the issues hit home for Cam. But at the end of the day when he gets to go home, the love of his family pulls him through.
Rough Road – 5 Feathers
Holy hell let the waterworks begin. This story was so emotional because it centers on the problems that Chassie, Edward and Trevor face in their everyday lives while trying to lead their alternative lifestyle in a small town, full of close minded people. These things will take a toll on all of them, and that includes children. In just a few pages it managed to show so much of their daily lives and their emotions. Their bond as a family, and their bond as a triad. Chassie, Ed and Trevor are still orgasmicly good! HOT HOT HOT! But not only do they still work after all these years together, and still love and respect each other, but they stand together against anything they have to face. Head on and strong. And the McKays made it a point to remind them that family sticks together. Yeah, I got a bit teary eyed to see the massive support and love that came through with this story. It reminded me of everything that I love about this series.
“Sweet words won’t get you sweet lovin’, my man.” Edgard kissed him hard and snatched the lube. “Hands and knees.”
All Knocked Up – 5 Feathers
Jack and Keely have always been a favorite couple of mine. Jack has also been on my top five men of this series even though he’s not a McKay. In good Jack and Keely fashion, this story made me both love and hate both. Keely is pregnant and lets just say a tad touchy and scary. Jack hasn’t been handling that the best way possible. ALL KNOCKED UP takes us on a ride through Keely’s three pregnancies, the ups and downs. The happy and the scary. And the freaking HOT. Another one that tugged at the strings of my heart. I got the unexpected with this story.
