Unashamedly erotic and packed full of powerful emotion

55753103._SY475_Precious by Roe Horvat

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Geeeeeze!

I don’t think anyone else can write a book in which there’s a sex scene on almost every page and yet still imbue the narrative with a fully fleshed out set of characters and a plotline which fits perfectly into the new world they’ve created quite like Roe Horvat can.

This book is beyond hot, it’s so hot it should carry its own fire risk warning. But, it’s so much more than just erotica.

It’s a whole new omegaverse alternate universe setting, with its own rules to be followed.

Roe always has an author’s note on the books he describes as erotica and I totally get why, but for me, they’re never just porn without plot.

Are there loads of sex scenes – yes.

Do those sex scenes blow the roof off with their insane heat? Again yes.

But, is there emotional connectivity, trust, expectation, feelings, love, desire and protectiveness as well?

You better believe it.

Roe Horvat is a master at this game and I will never not applaud him for the way he takes risks not only with the stories he writes, but with the way he chooses to market them.

This is unashamedly erotic, and I appreciated every single dirty line, every bit of heat, all the knotting and mating rituals which come with an alpha and omega, and the fire and sparks exploding in every encounter.

Thanks Roe for doing what you do so well – explore the sexual behaviours of people in a multitude of ways and do it with honesty and no shame.

Blurb

Parker Wilson has the life he’s always wanted: an apartment in Brighton Pier, amazing family and friends, and a job he loves. With the invitation to his childhood best friend’s engagement party, the safe haven he’s created around himself is soon flooded with memories of the past. The roadblock he’s taken years detouring soon becomes a reality he can no longer avoid. After six years, Parker will have to see Sarah’s brother again—the only man he’s ever truly loved.

After running away from the truth and moving to Boston, Jason Maxwell must finally face Parker again—and the guilt he’s felt for leaving Parker all those years ago. Confronting the man who changed everything Jason thought he knew about himself, Jason realizes the miles he’s put between them hasn’t diminished what Parker means to him. Now, with the undeniable way he feels about Parker, Jason is determined to finally make things right.

Can a second chance finally land Jason and Parker on the path to happiness they’ve waited years for, or will they discover the final destination is actually the end of the road?

Trigger warning: This book contains a scene with some violence. It’s suggested to the reader to skip the prologue if this is triggering.

Excerpt

Parker glanced down at Jason’s hand grasping his forearm, then lifted brutal, cold eyes back up, pinning Jason where he stood. Abruptly, Jason let go but stepped in between Parker and the door. “Please, can we talk? Just for a minute?” Had he ever felt so terrified and desperate in his entire life?

“You’re about six years too late to talk,” Parker deadpanned.

“I know. I’m so sorry, Parker. I never should have done that.”

“You made that pretty obvious in that letter—if a few pathetic sentences could even count as a letter. So, if that’s all you have to say, don’t worry. I got that extremely loud and painfully clear.”

Jason sidestepped again to block Parker from leaving, his bigger frame making Parker look up. Jason’s body thrummed being this close to him, catching him off guard. Everything about this day wasn’t what he’d expected. “No, I mean I never should’ve left you there.” Holy shit, this was spiraling out of control. He’d wanted to apologize but, instead, desperation clawed as he tried to keep Parker right here with him. “I…I got—”

“It doesn’t matter. I’ve moved on. I’m not the same person you left in North Carolina. I had an incredibly long and eye-opening bus ride back to Jersey, and I left all that other shit behind.” He waved his hand in front of Jason with disgust. “So, this whole apology is a waste of time. We’ll smile our smiles for Sarah and then go our separate ways again. Don’t worry about me. Don’t think about me. I stopped thinking about you a long time ago—the second you cut me out of your life without a backward glance.” The harsh glare Parker pinned him with made Jason swallow the lump forming in his throat.

As Parker pushed past him to go back into the restaurant, Jason’s heart thundered: for the words just said, for the words left unsaid, and most of all because he still knew Parker Wilson better than Parker wanted him to.

And he knew when Parker was lying.

About The Author

I have been an artist from a very young age. From drawing cartoon characters and evolving into portraits, making jewelry, photography, and now writing. I have an amazing support system in my family and friends and couldn’t be more grateful.

I live in central New Jersey, love summers at the Jersey Shore, rock music, wine, sexy men, and laughing a lot with my amazing friends and family. Sunday dinners at my parents’ house are crazy, hysterical and you can count on a movie quote…or ten…being thrown out. Insults between siblings is how we show our love for each other!

When I’m not creating, you can find me reading books from my favorite authors. I’m a hopeless romantic, starving for passionate characters and always craving that happy ending, whether in reading or in writing my own books.

Loads to recommend in this second act of The Elite from Ella and Brooke

Need for Speed AMAZONNeed for Speed by Ella FrankBrooke Blaine

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve decided to treat this series as if it was a play in three acts.

Book one set the scene and left the reader with a cliffhanger to draw us back.

Book two gives the payoff from that, and then goes into more depth as its relationship and plot lines develop.

Book three will bring the conclusion and, if it follows true to form with this pair, a satisfying ending with lots of feels and an explosion of sexual chemistry.

I love all the characters in this homage to Top Gun, the fighter pilot elite of the US Navy, with their banter and friendship.

The complex relationship between Panther and his father, the Navy’s previous top dog fighter pilot, and Solo’s incredible arrogance and sheer bravado.

I just wish it was all done in the one book.
