Iris Ebook


Mike Bravo. Knights in shining … camo.


I live for adrenaline. The thrill of the chase. And because I work for Mike Bravo, a private black-ops firm, it’s my job to go into dangerous situations.

But when we’re called in to extract a military team from a hostile situation, the thrill is so much better. Because one of those men happen to be the golden boy from my basic training days.

Brock “Saint” Harlow was a walking Captain America in the flesh. The perfect soldier.

Now my boss wants to recruit him, and I can’t wait to rub it in his face that he was rescued by me. The class clown.

I’m not called Iris “I require intense supervision” for nothing.


Military life is all I’ve known since I was born. I was raised to be a soldier.

But when a top-secret mission fails, I find myself suddenly discharged with nowhere to go.

Mike Bravo saved my life, and they want me to join them, but there’s one small problem.

Isaac “Iris” Griffin.

He’s as irresistibly snarky as he always was, only there’s a big difference this time. I’m no longer closeted or scared to live my truth. And the truth is, I’ve always wanted him.

It’s against Mike Bravo’s rules to fraternize with other team members, and I always follow orders.

But something tells me Iris might be worth the insubordination.

About The Author

Eden Finley

Eden Finley is an Amazon bestselling author who writes steamy contemporary romances that are full of snark and light-hearted fluff.

She doesn’t take anything too seriously and lives to create an escape from real life for her readers. The ideas always begin with a wackadoodle premise, and she does her best to turn them into romances with heart.

With a short attention span that rivals her son’s, she writes multiple different pairings: MM, MMF, and MF.

She’s also an Australian girl and apologises for her Australianisms that sometimes don’t make sense to anyone else.

What an opener – Iris is everything I wanted from this new series

59238149._SY475_Iris by Eden Finley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

With her new series, Eden skillfully balances the humour her books are known for with the tensions that come along with a mission heavy ex-military action adventure.

Mike Bravo is a team of specialists working outside of any Government control, they’re private contractors who we last saw in her Famous series.

Iris is the smart mouth, the cocky guy with the ego – and the skills – to back up all his big talk.

But he’s rocked when they find a guy from his basic training ten years earlier while on an extraction mission.

Saint is barely alive, his black ops team dead around him, when he’s rescued by a guy he was crushing on back in his closeted days.

The reconnection story line is done so well, both men have always been attracted to the other but Iris thought Saint was straight. The UST is tangible throughout the opening chapters as both men come to terms with their new situation.

The banter between them is laced with sexual bravado and eventually the adrenaline following a recon job boils over into a seriously hot makeout session.

I think what I loved best about this book though is that there is zero relationship drama, no angsting, miscommunication or lack of talking.

All the hard beats come from Saint trying to remember what went wrong on his mission, dealing with probable PTSD and the ongoing case to bring down a terrorist holed up in an (fictional) African country

The pacing is cracking as the narrative builds up to another mission and Saint has some hard choices to make.

I absolutely adored them as a pairing. They’re strong willed individuals, but both have tender spots just waiting to find the right man to show them to.

The sexy times are bunsen burner hot, but filled with intimacy and emotional vulnerability from the off. They have a connection which bounces from the page.

Add in a crew of additional characters who are all awesome too and who throw up potential for their own snarky romances left, right and the very sexy centre of big boss Trav and the Government spook who he has clearly got history with and all I can say is “bring it on!”

From the minute I picked it up, to the second I out it down Iris and Saint put a smile on my face. I can’t wait for more.

Cover Reveal: Sapphire Sunset by C. Travis Rice

C. Travis Rice | Sapphire Sunset

Sapphire Cove #1


Release Date: March 1st, 2022

Pre-Order Universal Link: http://mybook.to/SapphireSunset



New York Times bestselling author Christopher Rice introduces C. Travis Rice, a new pen name devoted to tales of passion, intrigue, and steamy romance between men.

In SAPPHIRE SUNSET, the first Sapphire Cove novel, he transports you to a beautiful luxury resort on the sparkling Southern California coast where strong willed heroes release the shame that blocks their heart’s desires.

Logan Murdoch is a fighter, a survivor, and a provider. When he leaves a distinguished career in the Marine Corps to work security at a luxury beachfront resort, he’s got one objective: pay his father’s mounting medical bills.

That means Connor Harcourt, the irresistibly handsome scion of the wealthy family that owns Sapphire Cove, is strictly off limits, despite his sassy swagger and beautiful blue eyes. Logan’s life is all about sacrifices; Connor is privilege personified. But temptation is a beast that demands to be fed, and a furtive kiss ignites instant passion, forcing Logan to slam the brakes. Hard.

Haunted by their frustrated attraction, the two men find themselves hurled back together when a headline-making scandal threatens to ruin the resort they both love.

This time, there’s no easy escape from the magnetic pull of their white-hot desire. Will saving Sapphire Cove help forge the union they crave, or will it drive them apart once more?
