Heartbroken.

It took the person he hated to make him love again.

A BIT OF ME BLURB

Excerpt

From Chapter 1

Wiping the sweat from his top lip, he tried to breathe in something other than stranger’s body heat. It was thick. Solid. Like the air had been stuck in the carriage for years. And he knew as the doors beeped shut behind him, the five-fifty-two to London was going to be one bastard of a journey.

‘Close one, Georgie boy.’

‘I know.’ Wheezing, George slipped into the seat next to Alfie and sucked in mouthfuls of the staleness. ‘Got held up at work.’

Truth was, it had nothing to do with his job. Being late wasn’t something George Taylor was good at. He was the fucking champion. Tell him where and when to meet and he’d be there. Twenty minutes after everybody else.

Dripping with sweat, he dragged the back of his wrist over his brow then yanked the neck of his T-shirt in an attempt to cool his clammy skin.

Sitting on the chav wagon for an hour was hell for him. The thought of being sat amongst thirty-odd strangers, most of whom had no idea of personal space, gave him full on anxiety. Actually doing it, made him want to vomit. But it was worth it. Nothing could bring him down. Not even a soap dodger with an allergy to antiperspirant. He was on his way to see Ellie. And that was all that mattered.

‘Babes, please tell me you’re not wearing that tonight.’ Aimee momentarily glanced away from her phone and winced at his muddy top. ‘Ells will actually kill you if you turn up in that.’

‘Course not. I’ve got my going out gear in here.’ George unzipped his torn rucksack to prove he’d packed a fresh set of clothes that morning. He hadn’t needed the reminder that Ellie would disapprove of his work gear. ‘I didn’t have time to change.’

‘Or wash by the smell of you.’ Aimee turned her nose away. ‘You look like you’re covered in-’

‘Shit!’ Alfie jabbed his elbow into George’s side. He was gawping at a blonde who had just boarded the train in a tight figure-hugging blue dress. ‘Look at the bounce on those things.’

Never one to encourage Alfie’s ogling of anyone with breasts, George made a point of rolling his eyes. He couldn’t help but notice the impressive chest on the blonde himself though.

‘She is hot.’ Alfie whistled, manspreading into George’s space.

Aimee peered up from her phone to give the woman the once-over. Possibly the twice-over by her look of disdain. She was one of the nicest, sweetest girls on the planet but other attractive females brought out the monster in her. ‘What? No way. She’s so basic.’

‘I don’t care if she’s basic, I’d motorboat the fuck out of those things,’ Alfie beamed, following it up with a wink George’s way.

‘The way you objectify women is gross.’ Aimee huffed, pulling at her neckline to show off her own bronzed and perky assets. ‘Besides, you can tell she’s a total bitch, just look at her eyebrows.’

George and Alfie shrugged in unison as Aimee continued to glare at the woman. Like she was sizing her up for a coffin. George had no idea what the woman’s eyebrows had to do with her being a bitch, but by the grimace plastered on her face, Aimee seemed adamant about it. She always insisted that she had a way of knowing those sorts of things, but George had yet to see any proof.

CancerShipsAquarius-f

 Blurb

Prepare to dip your toe into the biggest adventure of your life, Cancer. There’s romance in the air, and it smells deliciously salty.

Dumped by the fifth girl in two years and abandoned by his best friends, Reid Glover is alone and in need of a home.

Desperate, he interviews to become a live-in manny aboard widowed Sullivan Bell’s yacht, the Aquarian.

The job? Not to look after thirteen-year-old Joanna. No, this child-mastermind needs Reid to befriend her dad, urge him to participate more in family life, encourage him to date, oh, and become his closest confidant and help him unleash his bottled emotions.

No pressure.

At least he’s not entirely out of his depth.

Okay, so he may have a slight aversion to the ocean. And possibly attract more than his fair share of misadventure.

But he is a pro at crying.

Watch out, Sullivan. Reid is on his way with a family-sized carton of tissues. He will help Sullivan through his fears. Will help him find love again.

Will absolutely not fall for him in the process . . .

Caution, Cancer, how long will you fool yourself?

Cancer Ships Aquarius GraphicExcerpt

Reid dragged his gaze over every damn inch of Sullivan. The hard jaw, that corded neck, those arms that flexed as he folded his arms over his whistle, the hint of defined abs denting his shirt, those solid thighs. He prodded a finger against Sullivan’s stomach—yep, definitely washboard. “Nope. You’re meat lovers, through and through.”

A curious flush speckled the base of Sullivan’s neck. “This will be a meat-lover free year.” Sullivan’s blue gaze tickled over Reid’s face in earnest. “No matter the temptation.”

Reid held his gaze. “I’ll try but what if I’m weak?”

Embracing His Syn Cover

Blurb

Sergeant Corbin ‘Syn’ Sydney had dedicated his life to becoming the best detective. So when he heard there was an opening on the notorious Atlanta Narcotics Task Force, he jumped at the chance.

But, what he wasn’t ready for was realizing just how lonely he’d made himself, when he observed the loving and dedicated relationship between the two men he served under: Lieutenant Cashel ‘God’ Godfrey and Lieutenant Leonidis Day.

Syn prepared himself to accept his lonely fate until he walked into a small pub and met the long-haired, tattooed bartender, Furious Barkley. Before Syn can even understand why, he’s overcome with feelings he barely recognizes: passion, yearning, craving. And if the dark, lustful gazes are anything to go by, Furious might be feeling the same things for him.

Just two things need to happen before Syn and Furi can give each other what’s been missing from their lives for so long… Syn needs to find the evidence that proves Furi’s innocence of murder, as well as protect him from a past that refuses to let go.

God, Day, Ronowski, and Johnson are still as entertaining as ever…

You’ll swoon over God’s massive take-charge attitude…

You’ll laugh hysterically at Day’s never-ending wit…

You’ll fall in love with Furious’ mysterious, sexy demeanor…

and…

You’ll embrace Syn…

Disclaimer: The main characters of this book DO NOT participate in polygamous sexual pairings.

Excerpt

Syn paid his tab for the one beer and left the pub. Somehow making love in an elevator didn’t appeal to him anymore. If he was being honest, women in general rarely did. He’d always felt they were more of a distraction than anything and he’d had very little time for distractions while focusing on his career. Syn looked up and down the street, about to cross to his building when a familiar figure caught his eye just a half-block up.

Furious. That’s what the man in the pub had called him. Interesting name.

Syn detoured and headed in that direction. His body completely ignoring what his brain was screaming. He just looks like him … this is not the same. Syn walked slowly, Furious wasn’t going anywhere since he appeared to be waiting for the bus. He watched a billow of smoke emerge from full, pink lips. Smoking. It was a filthy habit, but somehow, Furious made it look kind of hot. Syn was just a few feet away and saw that Furious had ear buds in, his hands tucked into the pockets of his jacket, head hanging down and all that hair falling over his beautiful face.

Beautiful face. Syn watched the man remove the cigarette from his lips.

“Uh oh. Stranger danger.”

Syn looked behind him but no one was there.

“I mean you. You just gonna stand there and stare, man?” Furious raised his head and turned slowly, pinning Syn with a hot glance.

“Name’s –”

“Yeah. I know your name, you told me already.” Furious cut him off. “Your cologne will give you away every time.”

Syn stepped a little closer. “Does it smell that bad?”

“Nope. Smells that good,” he said on an exhale of smoke.

Aaron loves Matty loves Aaron and I love this collection

Better than BeginningsBetter Than Beginnings: A Better Than Good Short Story Collection by Lane Hayes

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an absolutely fabulous collection of Aaron and Matty short stories, a few of which I’ve already read in various places as Lane’s released them in her Facebook group or via her newsletter.

Having them all in one easily accessible book is a real joy though, as you get a further sense of the absolute devotion and true love this pair of unlikely partners have for each other.

There’re times you’ll be laughing out loud. There’re times you’ll want to cry, there’re times you’ll be so angry the Kindle’s in danger of getting chucked out the window.

But at all times you will know that Aaron loves Matty and Matty loves Aaron.

Just wonderful. I’d read about these two until the end of time.

One thing though, I’ve never understood how Matty’s family could think that Aaron sounded anything like Erin. It must be a US thing.

Here in the UK Aaron is pronounced Aar-on while Erin is almost like Eh-rin. Just an odd thought I had!

Another delicious walk on the dark side from Kat and Agnes

43908251._SY475_.jpgStraight as a Wheel: Smoke Valley MC by K.A. Merikan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Only Kat and Agnes Merikan could give their readers a romance between two men who you should be be rooting to end up in jail but who you’re desperate to see get their HEA.

The Sex and Mayhem series is among my favourite walk on the darker side of life. With this book, we’re back with the Smoke Valley MC and it’s Rain’s older brother Leo who gets the focus.

There’s so much I want to say about this book, but like any Merikan narrative, I think they all work better when you go in blind.

Let’s just say, if watching lost boys who don’t know they’re lost fall for guys who don’t realise they’re bisexual until they get hit over the head with a visceral attraction, is your thing, this book’s totally for you.

I loved every twisted, bad boy biker bit of it.

Fake it ’til you make it and win all the festive romance

The Christmas DealThe Christmas Deal by Keira Andrews

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve read some absolutely smashing Christmas books so far this year and now Keira’s is currently sitting at the top of the tree.

This was so good, it had absolutely the right mix of festive cheer and sharp pain to stop it ever becoming overly cloying.

I absolutely love the fake boyfriend trope and here Keira gives it a fresh look with a sister accidentally setting up her friend and sort of boss at work with her down on his luck brother.

Throw a grieving stepson into the mix and you really have a perfect recipe for a Christmas romance with all the feels. I wanted to surround Logan in bubble wrap within the first few pages, the poor guy has got the weight of the world on his shoulders and none of it has been his doing.

Seth has been hurt by those who should love him best and he’s still dealing with his long-term partner’s desertion of him a year previously after they made major life decisions and he was then left in the lurch.

The fake boyfriend scenario seems like a great temporary deal for all of them and the sparks fly almost from the off as Logan realises that his previous encounters with men might not have just been meaningless sex.

I loved how Keira approached his dawning awareness of his bisexuality. No erasure here, he’s not gay for Seth but he absolutely is romantically falling for a man for the first time with all the confusion that entails.

With a super setting and a great bunch of secondary characters (I loved Logan’s dad, his sister, her family, as well as Jenna and Seth’s wonderfully outspoken boss Angela) this really does provide a lovely romance to unwrap for the festive season.
