Dark and brooding firefighter Brad Archer has spent months denying his attraction to his roommate, police officer Gavin Connolly. Gavin is just the kind of guy he likes: tall, tough, and buff enough to actually handle Brad's big size and rough nature.

To hide his real feelings Brad holds the handsome, seemingly straight cop at arms' length until a shooting at work leaves Ga

Dear Kele Moon,

You should totally write more MM!

No really, why don't you write more MM?

Don't get me wrong, I like your MF....and let's face it, I don't like a lot of MF. But I like yours.

But I'd like you more if you wrote more MM...

Because, your's good stuff!


PS - Packing Heat was well....packed with heat! It was short and I could have read more about these two. But dark and broody Brad boy was he something else in the bedroom. WOWZERS!

** 4 “sinfully sexy” STARS **

“Somehow the two of them had collided in the darkness, two lost souls who’d been alone and craving something that was raunchy and deviant and wholly erotic in a way Gavin would have never comprehended before this moment.”


Brad Archer can feel the disaster waiting to happen in the morning.

Brad had been doing his best to keep his distance since Gavin moved in with him a few months ago, to ignore the way this gorgeous man’s been walking around the apartment like an
“Are you trying to seduce me, Mr. Archer?”

I loved it!

An emotional, funny, hot read, the love story of two gorgeous men…

Roommates: a fireman and a cop, secretly longing for each other for months, until once on a drunken night… Not so special, you would think, but it is!
Brad remembered with stunning clarity the reason why he kept his distance

This is a shorty but it is-

Kele Moon can seriously write, and her sex scenes are off the charts. Although she has a loyal fan base, I don't think she gets as much recognition as she should. I've yet to read a bad book from her. Just throwing that out there.

Expectations about the novella- one thing I think readers should know going into it is- this is a short sexy read. This is not as long nor as character driven as her other stories (that's not to say there's no story because there is). If you'r

***4 Dirty, Filthy HOT Stars***

Kele Moon, I love you and all your awesome MM ways!!

This was a fantastically dirty, filthy, aggressively HOT, testosterone fueled book. I loved every second of it. I'm typically not a fan of reading these short standalone novellas, as I usually find I just can't connect to the plot and characters. By the time I get there, the novella is over and I'm feeling unsatisfied...but NOPE, not here. Kele Moon has managed to pack quite the punch in under 100 pages!

Meet Brad a fireman

Meet Gavin- a police officer

The story starts off with them both living together as friends and room mates, yet passion sparks and oh boy does it spark causing them to question their relationship as friends.

The sex scenes were SCORCHING HOT!!! Kelli Moon certainly has a way with words which allows you to become gripped in the passionate scenes. Especially with the dirty talk between Brad and Gavin

3-3.5 Stars

Well, that was some very tasty smut. Sweet merciful porn babies, this book was smokin!!

This was kind of a simple story, not very much in terms of plot. But, if you want a light short read, virtually angst free with some fuckhawt sex and hot as hell MCs, this baby will hit the spot.

Here's the short short version...Brad, super hot, super huge, mildly aggresive firefighter is in love with his roommate Gavin. Gavin, super hot, also huge, not so aggresive cop, is also totally into Brad,
This short story is absolutely amazing! Gorgeous characters, sizzling, hot sex and a beautiful development of their relationship, even though the story isn't very long.

Gavin Connolly is a 34 year old bisexual cop who has the hots for Brad Archer, 38 year old firefighter hunk and LGBT youth counselor. Gavin even talked Brad into taking him in as his roommate when the older guy was looking for a roomie to share the costs. However, Brad carefully keeps his distance now and doesn't ever approach Gav

There is no denying Kele Moon can bring it. *AHEM* yep you might need a cold drink for this one! This is 2 hot alpha men...firefighter and cop...doesn't that just seem like the perfect wet dream combination?

Well, Gavin and Brad are roomies. One gay, one straight...or is he? The book opens with some hard drinking and a drunk Gavin having a bad day. While Brad notices his hot roomie, he would never cross the line, that is unless said drunk roomie climbs on your life! Shut th

Sounded like a easy to read M/M. The authors, Kele Moon, warning note in the book-blurb ~ “This is an erotic gay romance about a cop and and a firefighter doing very naughty things to each other. Only for readers who like their men big, buff and sinfully sexy.” ~ made me immediately deciding to try and

Available on KU

Nice and short hot read between *as the note says* two big, buff and sinfully sexy men.
They did get on my nerves a few times with :
"Gavin topped like a bottom" as if it bottom was a bad thing.
"These games, they're straight-people games. Playing coy, pretending to be something you're not. It's not necessary. I've got a dick. I'm single and I enjoy using it..."
"So you are saying ..."
"Dating woman fucked you up..."

Is this what they think about us?!

Opening Line: I'm a big advocate for gay rights. I'd vote for gay marriage if it ever came up on the ballot."

Well this was a fine little erotic romance. My first Kele Moon story but definitely not my last, there’s just so much to like here. Well written with memorable characters, smoking hot love scenes, just the right amount of dirty talk to make it interesting and for a novella enough plot and back story to hold it together and really give you a feel for the characters other then just who like

P-O-R-N does not spell P-L-O-T

It's porn. No point continuing past the first fuck...

I really liked the first half of the book. It was friends-to-lovers and the fucking was kinda hot. But it should have ended right there with a nicely wrapped unrealistic HEA. But noooo...the guys had to start acting like teenagers and I no longer found the fucking hot or enjoyable. Its porn with an unsuccessful attempt at a plot.

Now available on Kindle Unlimited folks! This is a MUST READ for cop/firefighter folks.

Brad and Gavin are smokin' hot together !! Wow, big firefighter Brad, and alpha cop Gavin finally admit their feelings and the pages are sizzling.
BEAUTIFUL story of M/M romance and love. Deep feelings, thought-filled characters with an interesting tale and also super hot sex. WELL DONE, and awesomely written by Kele Moon. There is fierce love, sweetness, and true romance.
I can't wait to read more from her. E N J O Y !!!
This gets five stars for the scorching hotness only. Minus one star because of the light childish drama and the boo hoo towards the end. But I'm a sap for happy endings so I loved the epilogue.

Off to discover more stories by this author!

There's two guys that get it on. The end.

Four stars coz it was hawt.
Short version because I really have to sleep... I fucking loved this. I feel a Kele Moon bender coming on.
I have a bone to pick with the PWP label. The sex and intimacy is the plot. It is the character development, and not in a shallow way.
I love PWP but in my opinion this book is not.

After reading:

I was expecting something more... complex, I think. As far as I can tell there was not plot here, which is the main reason for my cutting down a star.

Still, I cannot say I didn't enjoy the story, because it was both well-written and the characters were likeable. What's more,
3.5 stars

Hot damn. That was hot, hot, hot. They've been pining for each other for months. Aaawww.. So sweet.
I think I like it more if it's cop x firefighter couple. I need to find more of this.

I bought this because it was on sale for $.99, and it had better than average reviews.

I was ultimately disappointed. It was nowhere as good as what I thought it was going to be.

Silver lining? It was less than a dollar.

Absolutely loved this!!!
Uniformed hunks, fantastic hot sex and Jesus Christ - they actually TALKED about problems almost right away after said problems arose! Well, not without help from the cuffs and Gavin's insistence, but still! Usually the big misunderstanding, that got dragged on dosens of pages frustrates me to no end, so here I was happy it's been resolved quickly and efficiently,
And the epilogue! I love it! I really love seeing the characters after some years had passed and enjoying thei

I fell in loved both MC's, and the simplicity of this read~ just what I needed to make me smile...and smile big♣

Plot fell short, but this was a fun read and I love this was filled with sweetness~
