A Chance With His Alpha Cover

Blurb

I’m having a baby with my best friend to save the family business. He’s NOT in love with me. Is he?

Channarong Saithong, omega tiger shifter, only has time for two things; running his family’s restaurant, and pining after his best friend since the third grade, hot and playful alpha wolf Tristan Bolder. Pine is all he can do; Tristan wants them to be together for life, but only as best friends and bachelors.

When a tragedy befalls the family, Channarong’s conniving uncle resurrects an ancient law to steal the business for himself. The only way to stop him is to…have a baby? There’s only one person Channarong wants this baby with. Tris agrees to help, but in saving his family’s business, will Channarong sacrifice his heart?

Tristan Bolder is a carefree, fun-loving alpha wolf, content to goof off forever with his best friend Channarong by his side. Who needs a mate, right? But when Channarong comes to him desperate for help, with a proposition that will turn Tristan’s world upside down, he can’t say no. Now he’s got a baby on the way, an evil uncle to ward off, and no way to tell his best friend about the new-found feelings for him. What’s an alpha to do?

Can Channarong save the family business? Can Tristan step up to protect what he loves? Can making a family bring out the truth of their love, and bring them together once and for all?

This is the second book in the Seven Corner Shifters series. Reading book one isn’t necessary to enjoy this story, but it is strongly recommended. This book has a HEA and contains occasional strong language, MPREG, and hot, spicy grownup stuff. The omegas are heating up and the alphas are very knotty boys.

Excerpt

“You said you’d do whatever it took to help me. You promised.” Channarong stroked my hair softly with his free hand. I groaned. I did promise. I told him I’d fix it, no matter what it took. His shoulders drooped. His face crumpled with heartbreak and I couldn’t stand it. “I’m sorry. It’s wrong for me to pressure you into this kind of help. Should I find somebody else, then?”

Channarong having a baby by some unknown alpha? Tied to them forever? Tied to them, like, knotted?

“I said, hell no!” I barked. He’s mine. I checked myself, calmed my racing heart and flaring temper. “No,” I said softer, trying for a teasing smile. “If you need a sperm donor, hot stuff, it might as well be me.”

He lit up, shuffling on my desk, making his quads tighten and flex and his thyme scent stronger. “So we’re having a baby together. And we’ll still be bros? Bachelors together forever, like you said? Just with a cute mini-me.”

“Damn. That sounds really good, actually.” Better than it should for such a crazy idea, but I was about to hit the big three-oh. I wanted to settle down and have a couple of sprouts at some point. Why not have a little one with my best friend? We knew each other better than anybody and we’d make a great team.

His scent was overwhelming. Every ounce the Channarong I’d always known, laced with hints of receptivity.

“So, uh,” I chuckled nervously. We were still all up in each other’s bubbles, still holding hands. Channarong still had no pants on and my brain was fuzzy, struggling to process logical thoughts. “You got a turkey baster ready?”

Channarong bit his lip, looking down at the floor, waving a hand in front of himself, as if I needed to be reminded of his beautiful body right there and how he wanted to give it to me. At least for the moment. “I was thinking we could do it the old-fashioned way. Fast. Convenient. Free.”

The last thing I wanted was to run from my past straight into my fated mate.

Omega wolf Rashad Hall is running. He needs a safe place to start over, and the last thing he wants is an alpha. When he steps into Seven Corners and immediately scents “mate,” he fights his most basic impulse to seek out his one true love, Bronx Bolder, the lead alpha who has to grant permission to stay on his territory. Instead Rashad trespasses, courting disaster, but he’s irresistibly drawn the strong, tempting, in-control alpha. Rashad can’t let go of his fears. What happens when he can’t stay away from Bronx, either?

Alpha wolf Bronx Bolder can’t find an omega strong enough to stand by his side, and he’s tired of looking. When he discovers omega wolf Rashad started a small successful business on his territory, Bronx starts out feeling irked but soon comes to admire Rashad’s fighting spirit.

When he realizes they’re fated mates, it’s easy to fall in love- and into bed- with the alluring, mysterious omega. Rashad pulls Bronx close, then pushes him away. Rashad’s keeping a lot of secrets, including the result of their tryst- a pregnancy. When Rashad’s past comes back to bite him, can Bronx protect him and the new life in his womb?

What’s Rashad running from? How will his past come back to haunt him? Can Bronx help his fated mate overcome his fears for a chance at true love?

The Unbreakable Bonds Series follows the close friendship of four men — Lucas, Snow, Rowe, and Ian — as their lives are forever changed when a dark shadow from their past resurfaces to extract revenge.

The quartet has been drawn together through a series of struggles, tragic events, and triumphs. They have learned to lean and depend on each other through the years for their survival.

But will their friendship survive the painful events that are set to unfold?

A Quick Catch Up With Rowe & Andrei

Chatting with Rowe & Andrei from Unbreakable Bonds

by Jocelynn Drake

Hello, everyone! Thanks so much for letting me stop by and share my love of the Unbreakable Bonds series.

The first book, Shiver, was released more than five years ago, and we’ve recently decided to recover the series to reflect the changing times and tastes of readers.

Over eight novels, four short story collections, and lots of random tales, Rinda Elliott and I have taken readers on a journey of explosions, danger, angst, and love with Lucas, Snow, Rowe, and Ian.

Today, I thought we’d have some characters answer a couple of reader questions.

Rowe is the owner of Ward Security and former military with an expertise in chaos. Noah is his lover and also former military.

For Rowe – Which is better C4 or Duct Tape?

Rowe: (claps his hands together and rubs them) Is this like a tasting? Do I get to test out some samples before making a decision?

Noah: (chuckling) Is there any duct tape or C4 that you haven’t tested out?

Rowe: Probably not, but you can’t blame a guy for trying.

Noah: I guess not. Though, I think there’s some scented duct tape we haven’t gotten our hands on yet.

Rowe: That sucks. But back to the question, I like both. Each has its uses. Blowing up a building? C4.

Noah: Restraining a bad guy? Duct tape.

Rowe: Restraining a friend? Duct tape.

Noah: Distracting a bad guy? C4.

Rowe: Distracting your neighbor when you’re trying to steal his ugly political signs from his front yard? C4.

Noah: Fixing a hole? Duct tape.

Rowe: Really? I would have said lube.

Noah: (snickering) Can’t take you anywhere.

Andrei is the COO of Ward Security, former bodyguard, and former MMA fighter. Lucas is his husband and former client.

For Andrei – How much wrangling do you have to do at work?

Andrei: (chuckling to himself) Well, every job has its good days and bad days.

Rowe: You’re not off to a good start.

Lucas: I’m sure you have nothing to do with there being bad days.

Rowe: Hey! I’m an excellent boss.

Lucas: And an excellent source of chaos and destruction.

Andrei: So, as you might have guessed, part of my job is a mediator between the swirling bouts of insanity. I’ve taken over a lot of the day-to-day operations from Rowe, such as hiring, organizing training, and managing a lot of the overall scheduling with Noah. Rowe is supposed to be focused on big-picture planning like navigating the overall direction of the company.

Rowe: Even though Andrei is the one with all the expansion ideas. I say he gets that from his husband, who has this need to take over the world.

Lucas: Whatever.

Rowe: You’re just short a white cat and an eyepatch, Dr. Evil.

Andrei: He is right, baby. You do want to take over the world. (Leaning in, he brushes a kiss along Lucas’s jaw.) But, generally, it’s not much different from most jobs, except the guns, fighting, explosives—

Rowe: And occasional slightly teeny tiny illegal stuff, but all in the name of protecting good people and stopping bad people.

Andrei: That’s why I’ve got the lawyers on speed dial.

It was Inevitable I would fall in love with this book

inevitable coverInevitable by Briar Prescott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Do you know what was Inevitable about this book? That Briar Prescott would write a beautiful and unconventional love story that takes hold of your heart and won’t let go.

The navigation of a relationship with just two people is complicated enough, but throw in a third, add in one of the MCs being Ace and two of them being best friends who’ve been in love without ever acknowledging it for half their lives and you could have had a right mess.

Instead, what Briar gives the reader is an organically developed and cleverly paced narrative that takes them on a journey alongside Bas, Drew and Ezra as what they each bring to the other proves to be the catalyst for taking chances.

There is some angst, it would be unbelievable if there weren’t doubts, fears and occasional stumbles, but a lot of the tension is caused by events outside of their relationship.

***SPOILER***

Drew’s parents and sister are insert swear words of choice here and my heart broke for him when he came to the realisation that he’d never meet their unobtainable standards while remaining his true self. I despise people that cannot accept their children for who they are when it comes to their sexuality and identity.

***ENDS***

But, for me, everything about the way they came together just made sense, they fit and Ezra acted as the glue between Bas and Drew which let them finally let loose on their love.

It’s not particularly steamy, there is a wonderfully hot hook-up when Drew meets Ezra for the first time (he and Bas are not a couple, no cheating here just saying!) and there is one scene between the three of them after they’ve committed to being a throuple.

Both are emotionally connected and integral to the plot, not thrown in just to meet a quota, and they resonate with feelings. The Epilogue is just gorgeous and made me very happy.
