Bo Next Door Cover

Blurb

Ian enjoys the spotlight, the band, the fans—everything he’s worked hard to get. But very few people know the man under the fierce makeup and loud clothes.

Bodhi is excited for a fresh start in a new town where no one knows his past. Thanks to his hyper but lovable dog, Ollie, Bo runs into the hot and mysterious guy next door. His attraction to Ian is immediate, but dating his neighbor is a big risk.

Ian wants more than the casual hookups he’s been enjoying. Bo next door, with his crazy dog, makes him think it could be possible. Fame and notoriety bring challenges though, will it prove too much for Bodhi to handle?

Bo Next Door is an endearing story of love, trust, and finding someone who loves all of you. Sometimes the one you were hoping for is right next door.

The Love Bank Romance series features sweet LGBTQ love stories with a little heat.

Rider doesn’t have a lot of rules when it comes to guys, but there is one- he doesn’t date, not ever. He’s content with random hookups because dating means too much. That’s reserved for the one person he knows he can never have, his best friend, Cameron.

After watching his own family fall apart, Cam longs for someone who will stick it out through thick and thin. He’s had a string of girlfriends that never seem to be the right one. The one person he can always count on is Rider.

One night out changes everything between them. When Rider ends up telling Cam the secret he’s been hiding, Cam is left reeling. But will an accident end Cam’s chances to figure out what it means for them?

All the Stars is a heartwarming story of friendship, love, and finding the one that was right in front of you all along.

Excerpt from Book #1

But, hey, you’re back on the market now, that’s a good thing, right?”

“I don’t know. I don’t like being on the market. I’m not like you, Ri. I can’t just go around sticking my dick in anything that moves. Or getting stuck, not sure which you prefer.”

“Yeah, we’re not going there,” he said in a flat tone.

“Well…whichever way it happens, I’m not a casual sex kind of guy. It’s easier for you, but I need it to mean something.”

I thought I saw Rider flinch. He muttered, “Yeah, right…easy.”

“What?” I asked, not sure if he knew he’d said that out loud, but it felt like there was more to it.

“Nothing. Let’s get back to this ridiculous game. Maybe I can die like eight more times before I have to go.” He picked up the controller and unpaused it, respawning at the last checkpoint.

“I like how you set attainable goals for yourself,” I teased as I started running again. If he wanted to ignore whatever that weird comment was, that was fine. I would too.

“Outlook not so good,” Rider said, right as he got snatched up in the exact same spot as the last time.

“Points for consistency.”

“I think if I manage to die twice the exact same way in real life, I should get a massive prize.”

“A gold star, a big one. Better yet…an actual star. I’m getting you a star. When the astronomers are looking through their telescopes, they’re going to say that’s Vega 22; right there is Betelgeuse 11, and that bright one over there – that’s Rider’s Shiny Ass Gold Star.”

Rider snickered. “You’re such a nerd.”

“Yeah, well, you know they say the company you keep says a lot about a person. So, what’s that say about you?” I said.

“It says you make me look cooler by comparison.”

“Always happy to make you look good, it’s what I live for.”

READ MY REVIEW

Snowed-jpg

Blurb

A second chance at love is all Kyle wants for Christmas, but a dark menace from his past wants him dead, and love is second to staying alive.

Kyle Lourenco has carved out a comfortable life and career for himself in Boston. With the holidays quickly approaching, he’s heading home for the first time in several years. Home to his loving parents and the small Canadian town where he was raised. And home to Christian, his best friend and the first man to steal his heart.

Just as a winter storm begins to blow in, it forces Kyle off the road only miles from home and a dark and sinister force from his past creeps ever closer. His only hope is getting to Christian’s cabin before the evil that has haunted him for years finally catches up to him.

Best friends since they were three, Christian Gauthier grew up next door to Kyle, in a remote mountain town with one stoplight and a forty-mile round trip to the nearest school. When Kyle left town for a shot at a professional hockey career, he took Christian’s heart with him. Even though he knew Kyle was always destined for bigger things, it hadn’t stopped Christian from falling for him as soon as he knew what love was.

With Christmas coming soon and a major snowstorm heading their way, Christian shuts the doors to the family store and heads to his cabin, where he will be on standby as an official volunteer for Search and Rescue. He has never regretted staying in Eagle Ridge, but a near miss on a simple rescue leads him to reevaluate everything, and when Kyle ends up at his door, he knows that guarding his heart might not be the best solution after all.

Excerpt

I should use the radio and contact his parents—let them know where he was, and that he was okay—because they were probably concerned that he hadn’t turned up. I should report him being here to the search and rescue team. Maybe I should call the RCMP. Someone might be looking for him, a friend, a lover? There might be someone else in the car wreck I assume he’d walked away from. 

I couldn’t move as shock stole my rational thoughts, and I needed to know whether I had to go out there and rescue someone else. 

“Kyle, were you alone?” No response, and then his eyes opened a little and I got my first look at the inky depths of a man in pain. “Is there someone else out there in the snow?” I asked clearly.

“Huh?”

“Were you alone in the car?”

“Car?”

“Is anyone else in danger?”

“Alone,” he managed and closed his eyes again. That was one thing I guess—he’d been driving in a snowstorm on his own, which meant I didn’t need to suit up and get out there. He’d slipped back into sleep, but it was restless and jarring as he groaned in pain and mumbled something that I barely made out… Taqriaqsuit. A nightmare then because the ancient phantoms of his momma’s stories visited in his sleep, and I’d held him before when the night terrors consumed him. I’d held him and quieted his fears, and he’d left me, and he’d never come back.

“No… no… no…” 

The blankets moved a little as he jerked and then whimpered, but his eyes were still closed, and I knew he wasn’t in this world right now. Wherever he was, he was fighting the same age-old demons that plagued his childhood. There was only one thing that stopped them then, but it meant me climbing into bed with him and cradling him, reassuring him I could keep him safe. It meant me opening my heart to the only man I loved and promising him I’d be there forever. 

I refused to lie because forever was something we’d never have.

The Holiday List 500

Blurb

The Mars maestro, the single dad, and a wish list…

Chet-

Boy, am I lucky! Finding a living situation with a houseful of passionate scientists just before the holidays is ideal in every possible way. As the newest member of the Script Club, I feel it’s important to step up and tackle the to-do list my friends would prefer to avoid. Item one, address the tutoring request from the neighborhood-hottie-slash-single-dad on the next block. I’ve got this!

Or do I?

Handsome, older, sporty gentlemen intimidate me. And Mr. McSwoony doesn’t like the holidays. This may be a daunting task.

Sam-

What do you do when a new neighbor shows up on your doorstep with cookies and a wacky plan to spread holiday cheer? I don’t need cheer, but I could use help with some of the experiments my son wants to try. I know football, not science. Hopefully, I can talk Chet into a mutually beneficial trade. The only snag is that I’m seriously attracted to my local Mars expert. He’s unintentionally charming…in the very best way.

Don’t quote me, but this holiday elf with thick glasses and a mile-long list might be exactly what I need.

The Holiday List is an MM bisexual, geek/jock romance with a holiday twist featuring a lovable scientist and a single dad who’s probably on the naughty list!

Excerpt

“Who said I was lonely? I’m not lonely. I’m just tired of being with myself. That’s not the same thing,” I argued.

“Close enough. One thing that helps me fight the blues is an immediate change of scenery,” Chet pronounced with a wide grin.

“Thanks, Doc, but Linc is coming home this week. I’m not going anywhere.”

“You don’t have to physically go anywhere. You can just switch up your routine and add—”

“Let me guess…holiday cheer?”

Chet beamed. “Yes.”

I had to give the guy credit…he was tenacious.

I couldn’t let him think he’d won too easily, though. I furrowed my brow, giving him my best cranky scowl, and huffed. “You really want to decorate my house?”

He frowned. “No. I want to reset your karma. And mine. You’ve done a good deed here tonight, and I owe you one in turn. I also owe my roommates for their kindness.”

“Putting up a tree is going to help your karma?” I snorted.

“And yours.”

Somehow, I doubted that, but I liked the idea of having an excuse to see him again. “Fine. You can decorate my house.”

Chet whooped as he jumped to his feet. “A nice noble fir would look perfect in that corner of your great room near the fireplace. But of course, closer to the window. We don’t want to worry about fire hazards. What’s your ornament situation? I’m happy to purchase some if needed. Simple red and silver balls are always nice and—”

“I’ve got plenty of balls.” I stood, testing my shoulder to be sure I didn’t do any real damage, as I met him at the door. “It’s getting late. We can talk about this later. You seem like the kind of Christmas elf who needs parameters.”

He snickered, pushing his glasses to the bridge of his nose. “There might be some truth to that statement.”

“Just so we’re clear, I’m not gonna want to wake up in a winter fuckin’ wonderland.”

“Right. Got it.”

I braced my hand on the doorknob, scanning the dimly lit foyer briefly. “Come over Saturday. We can talk about it then. And…you can meet Linc.”

Chet narrowed his eyes. Not gonna lie, his immediate transformation from skinny geek to bad-ass science guy was kinda hot.

“Is this trickery?”

“No, but it might be a good trade. We’ll see.” I shot a lopsided grin his way as I opened the door, pointing at the chair that knocked me on my ass. “This is not an adequate security system. I’ll give you my number. If anything seems suspicious or if you need anything, call me.”

Chet typed my contact info into his cell obediently, then pressed Call so I had his number too. Courtesy complete, he fixed me with a no-nonsense look. “Thank you. For the record, while I appreciate your help tonight, I didn’t agree to—”

“I know, I know.” I stared at him for a long moment.

This had to be one of the oddest yet most interesting nights I’d had in a while. This was probably a good time to remind myself that Chet was my neighbor. My much younger neighbor.

But damn it, he was tempting.

I leaned in and pressed my lips to his. It was featherlight touch, hardly a real kiss at all. It was just enough to make him blush. Chet’s cheeks pinkened, and a flush rose low on his neck.

“Mr. Rooney…”

“Sam,” I gently reminded him. “Good night.”

Don’t ask me how I did it, but I somehow managed not to turn around as I headed down the pathway and up the street to my house. My lips twitched in amusement, giving way to a smile that grew with every step. When I finally got home, I let it fly, grinning like a madman as I chomped on a rosemary shortbread cookie made by my own personal elf.

Was I vaguely alarmed at the concept of letting him put a bunch of holiday crap up in my house? Fuck, yes, I was. Hot kiss or not, nothing was going to happen between us. And I was okay with that. Mostly.

Maybe he was just the diversion I’d needed, ’cause hanging out at home for the next couple of weeks suddenly didn’t seem so bad.
