Zeke is the older man. The richer man. The man who plans to give Korey the world.

As MMA’s Light Heavyweight champion, Zeke’s million-dollar matches and multi-million-dollar sponsorships have given him the freedom to do whatever he likes. It pleases him to spoil Korey. Before Zeke’s best friend Charlie was deployed two years ago, he made Zeke swear he’d care for his brother Korey if anything happened to him.

When Charlie is killed by a roadside bomb, Zeke takes the young college student in, determined to give him everything he requires to succeed. He never expects to end up hoping he can keep Korey under more than his roof. He needs Korey beneath him.

If Korey had been in his right mind after Charlie’s death, he would’ve turned down Zeke’s offer. By the time he realizes his mistake, he’s already addicted to Zeke’s powerful presence.

He never meant to end up dependent on the man’s smiles and hot glances. The money, Korey could live without. The man has him hooked. There’s only one problem—neither man wants to cross the line from friends to lovers, ruining what they have.

Sugar Fighter is a short introduction to a new series by Charity Parkerson, Sugar Daddies.

Great intro to this new series from C. J. Baty

Copy of Copy of STARTING OVER Final CoverStarting Over by C.J. Baty

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is quite short but pretty full of detail.

It’s a really nice May to December romance between an older guy who’s looking to start over with his new club and a cop who’s sick of the homophobia he encounters from his family and his fellow officers.

There’s not much angst, it’s medium steam but both Xavier and Seb were nicely drawn characters and their on page chemistry came across well.

There’s also a whole host of other fascinating secondary characters in and around the club which will make up the other novels in the series.

Lots of promise from this debut author

His Heart or Mine (Individualists #1)His Heart or Mine by C.S. Joyce

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Lots of promise from this new to me author but just needing some polish.

NOTE 18/09/2018: I’ve just found out the ARC I had was unedited due to circumstances out of the author’s control so I feel I need to point this out.

That aside, the story itself is quite angsty and I didn’t find either character particularly engaging at first. Adam is so deep in the closet he’s practically mothballed. Jacob at first seems to be a sweetheart but he viciously turns and inflicts pain on those he’s supposed to care for if he feels under threat.

Neither of them is very sympathetic at all but the book itself kept me reading because I wanted to see how their inevitable about-face would take place.

There’s still loads of bumps on the way and towards the end, it felt a bit like we were lurching from one crisis driven moment to another.

But the narrative managed to pull itself together and there was a very sweet epilogue which puts them in a very strong HFN with a HEA on the horizon.

I’m definitely interested in book two though as the brief glimpse of one of the protagonists in this book whetted my appetite.

BLURB

Disgraced detective turned private investigator, Ray Clancy, left the force with a case unsolved. Finding the killer was no longer his problem, but it still haunted him. How long would he survive the frustration of not knowing before he gave into the compulsion of his nature to solve the crime?

Server, Andrew Shay, existed where he didn’t feel he belonged, living behind the guise of a costume. Yet it paid the bills, and he refused to complain about the little things in life.

One night he returned home from work to find his roommate dead and the killer still there. Afraid and alone, his life spiraled and he didn’t know what to do. Could a detective at his core and a scared young man join forces to bring down the killer in their midst?

EXCERPT

“What do you look like?” Ray asked, and it was the type of question I hated. How does someone describe themselves?

“Uhh, tall I guess, lanky, dark hair… nothing special. Just look for the guy pissing himself, that’ll be me.”

His chuckle eased the tight coil in the pit of my stomach. “Will do.”

He hung up without a goodbye, and I hurried to the bathroom for a shower. Like every shower in existence, I crouched under the spray to wash off. A half-hour later, cleaned, brushed, and dressed, I hopped on the bus toward Rudy’s.

Where I would normally pop earbuds in and stare out the window, I found myself too paranoid to daydream. It felt like everyone was looking at me. Was the killer on this bus? Are we passing them on the street? Can he see me through the glass?

I saw Ray had texted me his cell number, and I hoped I wouldn’t need it because I was drowning in a pool of my own blood. God, I was dramatic.

I took a second to drop a message with Elise that I was meeting someone who may be able to help and that I’d message her when I was on my way back. She asked if I’d grabbed the spare key, and I was glad I had, because she said she was closing at the restaurant.

The bus stopped and I waited until I was the last person to exit. There was something about not wanting to be stabbed in the back.

Rudy’s was directly across from the bus stop. I took a deep breath and raced across the street. Opening the door, I searched out the place. It took me a second to figure out who Raymond Clancy was.

His eyes were staring into a coffee mug, and while I couldn’t see the color, I just knew they were dark. His hair was mostly gray, but under the fluorescent lights golden strands peeked through. He was a worn-out man, but there was no way I wouldn’t jump him if he offered.

When he looked up, those brown pools held a lot of emotion. He knew I was who he was waiting for, and I knew he was a man who had seen more shit than what I was running from.

Neil isn’t a ghost, but he feels like one. Reincarnated with all his memories from his prior life, he spent twenty years trapped in a child’s body, wanting nothing more than to grow up and reclaim the love of his life.

As an adult, Neil finds there’s more than lost time separating them. Joshua has built a beautiful life since Neil’s death, and how exactly is Neil supposed to introduce himself? As Joshua’s long-dead lover in a new body? Heartbroken and hopeless, Neil takes refuge in his work, developing microscopic robots called nanites that can produce medical miracles.

Book Blitz: Scandalous by Sybil Bartel

Scandalous | Sybil Bartel

Alpha Bodyguard #1

Publication date: September 10th 2018

Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

Bodyguard.

Babysitter.

Chauffeur.

Not what the hell I thought I’d be doing with my life.

Especially not for a spoiled Hollywood actress on location in Miami Beach. But triple pay and carrying a gun had its advantages. I’d shove away paparazzi and screaming fans for a lot less. The Marines trained me to be Force Recon—intimidation and crowd control was child’s play compared to four tours. This assignment should’ve been easy money.

But the doe-eyed starlet with the perfect ass dragged me down her rabbit hole. Living for the spotlight, she leaked the perfect scandal. I warned her making headlines wasn’t in my job description, but she kept smiling for the cameras.

Now she was going to find out just how scandalous a bodyguard could be.

Author Bio:

Sybil Bartel grew up in Northern California with her head in a book and her feet in the sand. She dreamt of becoming a painter but the heady scent of libraries with their shelves full of books drew her into the world of storytelling.

She loves the New Adult genre, but any story about a love so desperately wrong and impossibly beautiful makes her swoon.

Sybil now resides in Southern Florida and while she doesn’t get to read as much as she likes, she still buries her toes in the sand. If she isn’t writing or fighting to contain the banana plantation in her backyard, you can find her spending time with her handsomely tattooed husband, her brilliantly practical son and a mischievous miniature boxer…

But Seriously?

Here are ten things you probably really want to know about Sybil.

She grew up a faculty brat. She can swear like a sailor. She loves men in uniform. She hates being told what to do. She can do your taxes (but don’t ask). The Bird Market in Hong Kong freaks her out. Her favorite word is desperate…or dirty, or both—she can’t decide. She has a thing for muscle cars. But never reply on her for driving directions, ever. And she has a new book boyfriend every week—don’t tell her husband.

To find out more about Sybil Bartel, be sure to follow her on Twitter (she loves to hear about your favorite book boyfriend!), visit her website, like her on Facebook or join her Facebook group Book Boyfriend Heroes for exclusive excerpts and giveaways.

RJ and VL nail it again with their latest ice hockey offering

35559022Ryker by R.J. Scott & V. l. Locey

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s not often I read a Young Adult romance because invariably I find myself rolling my eyes at the antics or – understandable given their ages – lack of maturity often used in the narrative to create plot tension.

However, as this is a spin-off from the Harrisburg Railers series and it comes from the pens of two of the finest writers of sports romance in the MM genre, I knew I’d get little of the above.

There is a wee bit of what could be described as irrational dislike when Ryker and Jacob meet, but the in-character explanations more than adequately provide reasons for Jacob’s feelings.

He’s also fairly quick to acknowledge it was his own unreasonable prejudices and a sense of misplaced inadequacy over their different backgrounds which led to his behaviour.

When they do finally move beyond friendship, the reader is given a truly beautiful tale of first love. They come to rely on each other for everything and, when the book brings us up to date with what’s been happening on the ice for the Railers, we see just how much Jacob has become Ryker’s solid foundation.

I loved everything about this book, apart from

**SPOILER**

having to read about poor Ten getting injured all over again

**SPOILER**

and I’m seriously looking forward to seeing where these authors take us next.

Scott’s story looks like it will be way more angsty and I’m now “bring it on”!
