Locking Him Down by Marley Valentine

This opposites attract MM romance is hot and sweet! Oliver hides who he is, while Micah lives out loud. You’ll get just a taste of Micah and Oliver’s chemistry in this short story.

Oliver has a big secret and the only one to figure it out is Micah, his long time crush. It’s going to get HOT when these two are forced to share a dorm room during a college visit. The only problem is, Oliver is hiding who he really his.
Being this close to Micah, he eon’t be able to
This novella was the main reason I wanted to read this anthology. It takes place before PRINCE OF HEARTS in LA Cotton's Verona Legacy series and follows Matteo, the sweeter mafioso. Matteo, Enzo, and Nicco are out of town collecting their debt from a strip club owner when Matteo hears a cry for help. In the darkness of the alley, he finds Caitlin who was ambushed while walking home from work. After chasing off her attacker, Matteo escorts her home where a storm keeps t

Review for Locking Him Down by Marley Valentine

This book was the perfect sweet, sexy pick-me up that I needed in these tough times.

I loved Oliver and Micah’s connection from the start, and I loved the contrast of how incredibly sweet they could be, and at the same time they could be incredibly hot together. These two just fit so well together, and I loved it.

This was a sweet, sexy and enjoyable read I couldn't put down. It's well-written and well paced. This is a fairly short story, but it pa

I'm reviewing My Hollywood Heart by Haley Jenner
Well this was a short quick read that I absolutely loved. It felt like you got a full story in this novella. It was a little hilarious, a little heartfelt, extremely hott, and will definitely give you all the feels. Arie and Blake had witty banter, some amazing chemistry and their steamy scenes downright explosive. This was an excellent addition to the Love in Lockdown anthology.

Locked Down by Shaw Hart - 4.5 Stars

The story's about Archer and Hazel.

It's a super short story and I really enjoyed it. It's an arranged marriage and I liked that he wanted to marry her because he knew she's the one for him and that he loved her.

The last chapter's the epilogue. I want more. (view spoiler)

I’ve been infatuated with Micah Stewart from the very first time I laid eyes on him.

The only problem is he doesn’t know I’m gay.

Nobody does.

It’s my biggest secret. Until a school field trip forces us together for a week.

Gah!! Forced proximity is such a fun trope to write and I loved writing this short Storm MC story for the Love In Lockdown anthology!!

“You were always my kryptonite, Chelsea, and we both know where that got me. Being forced into this kind of proximity with you is fucking dangerous.”

Meet Gunnar & Chelsea

The biker & the politician's daughter.
Sworn enemies.
One night will change everything.

FIVE STORM STARS for Caitlin and Matteo ❤🖤❤🖤!!!


This was short and so sweet!

“Angel of Tears” is a novella that precedes the “Verona Legacy” series and should be read before reading “Prince of Hearts”.

It's a dark bully college romance with the mafia trope.

Caitlin is a mysterious female character who thinks that because she comes from the wrong side of the track she is not good enough for Matteo.

Matteo is a male character who is completely different from his two c

My Hollywood Hart from Haley Jenner
Holy Shitballs these two can pack a punch with only a bite sized treat. When I saw who this was about I was a giddy hot mess! This is the kind of novella that tells an entire story. An entire filthy, dirty, swoonworthy story. I am desperate for more of these two and am not above begging. All the "Principesa" stars for this tasty morsel!!!

Wow! I have to say this author is fast becoming my fave MM story

Review for My Hollywood Hart by Haley Jenner:
Gah what a perfect little tease of a story that was. Everything is crossed that my favourite powerhouse duo expand on it at some point as would love to see more of this couple and the world's they just crossed. Gah. Over way too quick.

Gave 5 stars for the characters alone, but be warned, you will be left like a junkie wanting a fix but in the best way

- BAD/GOOD NEIGHBOR by Ker Dukey (5 stars)
This just a taste of what Is to come. A spicy MC short that is part of the Love in Lockdown Anthology for charity. You know if it’s a Dukey book it’s gonna be a good one! Jameson is in a very troubling situation which is when he first meets Melanie Monroe. Who knew they would end up being neighbors! This also introduces us to Animal. His book is coming up in June as part of the Royal Bastards MC. All in all, I enjoyed this short MC story. Told in dual PO

My 5 star review is for Angel of Tears by la cotton! This is as a beautiful story and one I won’t forget! Matteo and Cait meet under dire circumstances but what starts off as a horrible nights turns out to be one they won’t ever forget!

If any of the other stories are like this, then this is a read that will definitely keep you company when you need it most!

This review is for Angel of Tears by L.A. Cotton, which is part of the Love In Lockdown Anthology.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 STARS

I need more Matteo now!!! I loved how something so beautiful can come from the unexpected. I’d love to find out if fate has more in store for Caitlin and Matteo!

Angel Of Tears by L.A. Cotton is an EPIC read that will join the ranks of the BIBLIO-ARISTOCRACY!!!
Elsa Gomes (BookishAurora)

Read only Angel of Tears by L A Cotton and Locke by Tracy Lorraine.

Both were fun, steamy quick reads. AoT was a bit more emotional and the connection these two characters had was amazing. I hope they'll get their own book one day.

So I just finished Locke by Tracy Lorraine and man.. you’re letting your 19 year old son’s best friend stay at your house during the pandemic with your 18 year old daughter right next door. You’re letting them all drink beer during movie night and margaritas at dinner. Mom is also pushing daughter and friend together by helping him plan “date night” and hiding it all from Dad and brother. And in the end when the quarantine is lifted and everyone goes to college, parents let their daughter move i ...more

Bad/Good Neighbour - Ker Dukey

Sexy rough biker and sweet innocent doctor. Sign me up!

Jamieson first meets Monroe when he’s taken to her ER for a gunshot wound. From the minute he sees her, he wants her.

He just so happens to move next door to her and like a knight in shining armour, saves her during a storm one night and their fate is sealed. Leading the way for some hot and steamy lockdown scenes!

Jamieson is protective, has humour and is definitely all alpha and I need to more of their story.

I totally bought this for the M/M story Locking Him Down by Marley Valentine. I really enjoyed this short. Oliver has been keeping secrets from everyone, but he cannot hide from himself that he has a fascination with one certain guy. Micah is out and not afraid to be who he is. He is not sure why Oliver stares at him in odd ways or what he might have done to make him dislike him. But now that they will be spending a week in a dorm room together, it's probably time to come clean.

Five Stars for Everyone!

What a great anthology to read during this time in our world. Fourteen authors come together to create love during lockdown. I love anthologies because they always introduce me to new authors and even gives me a glimpse of when authors I’ve read before write new tropes!

Love in Lockdown has everything from arranged marriages, friends to lovers, MC, age gap/reverse age gap, second chance, mafia, and MM. There is something for everyone. Every author did a fantastic job at

Marley Valentine's "Locking Him Down" is wonderful New Adult romance, and THE highlight for me among so many great stories.

Oliver and Micah!!!!! FLOVE their origin story. Opposites attract finding new love and leaving the whole world open for possibilities. Marley Valentine has another HUGE hit in MM romance on her hands with "Locking Him Down"

"Our mouths move without an expiration date, languidly teasing and tasting, promising one another of all the good things left to come." That's top notch

For charity

I was told by an Author in this Anthology that these were full stories, well they are short stories but full they are not. With endings "The end for now", for the full story pre-order here", etc. So for now I'm turned off of these types of books.

The only good thing that came out of them is it was for charity!

I’ll be honest that I’m here only for L.A. Cotton’s story.

Angel of Tears // A Verona Legacy Short Story

Matteo is one of my favourites from the Verona Legacy so I’m really happy I got to see more of him! He’s such a great character, and here it’s proved that he has a heart of gold. He’s a gentleman and I just love everything about him. Him and Caitlin had this spark from the start so it was a cute short story to read, although I really secretly hope that we’ll get more of him, and that him and C
