Angel DeLucca is one of the most sought after gay bachelors in Virginia Beach. He’s smart, successful, lethal, and more than anything he’s drop dead gorgeous. When a one night hook-up goes terribly wrong, Angel comes into contact with the breathtaking Maximus “Max” Strong.

Max is a firefighter for the Virginia Beach Fire Department. Max is beautiful, charming, and also very straight. One meeting with the mysteriously sexy Angel DeLucca and a whiff of that silky, jet black hair, Max finds himself questioning everything he’s known to be true about himself. Max tries desperately to understand the new feelings he has for another man and turns to his gay, older brother…Ryker.

Ryker has always been Max’s protector and his guide their entire lives, which has left him feeling uncared for and alone to handle his own life’s problems. Ryker craves to be taken care of, he craves the attention and praise of a Master. No one knows the dark desires within him until Angel’s Chief of Security, Sebastian “Bass” Bagatelli, shatters that secret with their first intense encounter.

Contains mature themes.

Excerpt

Angel stood motionless, enjoying their contact, still in a protective stance in front of Max, when he felt that hot breath wonderfully caress his ear again. Max pressed his mouth firmer against his ear this time, making him unconsciously tilt his head to give Max a little more access. Angel felt the curve of Max’s smile against the side of his neck, and…wait! Holy shit. This can’t be this easy. Angel unmistakably felt Max’s erection pressed delectably against his ass.

“Well, are you going to grab him or should I?” Max’s deep voice penetrated his erotic haze. Angel looked up and noticed the fallen robber searching for his firearm under the booth.

“I got him,” Angel growled. He took quick, determined steps toward the man, kicking bar chairs out of his way and grabbing the man with both hands by the collar, slinging him into the nearest booth. The man went flying into the seat like he weighed twenty pounds and Angel never even broke a sweat. “Be quiet and stay there if you value your life,” Angel said calmly, pinning the man to the wall with a fire hot gaze that said I’m fucking serious.

Angel spun around, his braid swinging over his left shoulder as he heard Max tell the bartender to calm himself down and dial 911, everything was over now. Some of the bar patrons were rising from their hideouts and applauding them.

Max turned back toward him and they locked eyes, feeling that click again. Max came to stand in front of him. His firm chest was outlined through his tight Seventeenth Street Surf Shop threadbare T-shirt. Max wasn’t overly muscular and he had a little less definition in his mid-section, but he was still extremely handsome. Angel dropped his gaze and watched Max’s slow hand inch toward him. Max stroked Angel’s braid as gently as a newborn baby’s face before carefully moving it back over Angel’s shoulder.

“I guess we make a pretty good team…Maximus.” Angel rolled that name off his tongue the way he knew Max liked it.

Angel watched the man shiver.

“That remains to be seen.” He winked at Angel.

A bittersweet farewell to the kalinski story as we see Jackie Blue fall in love

52929898._SY475_Draw by V.L. Locey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

V.L. signs off the Kalinski saga with Jackie Blue, the absolutely fabulous genderqueer son of Vic and it’s a beautiful ending.

It’s got everything you’d expect, the fiery Polish ex-hockey star being an arse, explosive and outrageous reactions to the news Jackie is in love with a guy 25 years older than him, heart-warming emotions, inspiring LGBTQ+ representation, and hope for the future.

Vic and Dan are still strong, some 20 years after the first books were set. Jackie is studying fashion when he sets eyes on the new guy playing with his dad’s gsy ice hockey team.

Martin was a delight, a Boston Marine firefighter chief, out and proud, with two kids older than Jackie, but he was smitten from the get go too.

What I really loved about this book is that it wasn’t easy, everyone didn’t just go with the flow.

There were doubts raised, arguments had, fears expressed, and issues to overcome.

A sub-plot with a series of arson attacks worked well enough, it didn’t overtake the narrative and gave impetus for some much needed humble pie being eaten by Vic.

The rest is just a really lovely romance between two people for whom the age gap is an irrelevance. They are perfect for each other.

As a bit of a cheeky aside, Martin has pear-green eyes, I know that because it’s mentioned a whole lot 😉

I shall miss Vic, Dan, and the rest of the crew, the foul mouthed Pole is one of my most beloved assholes in fiction.

When the world labels a man and judges them blindly, is it possible to ever find love?

Firefighter Eric is on the front line, battling the threat of nature’s destruction in the California grasslands alongside his CalFire team. Focused and calm, even in the direst of situations, he has a strong affection for his fire truck, loves his career, and has best friends he can rely on. All he needs now is love, but that seems to be impossible to find.

At his friend’s wedding, Eric falls in lust at first sight with the shy, slim and sexy Brady, even if Brady isn’t the type of guy he usually goes for. What Eric longs for is an equal in his bed, not a smaller guy who might want Eric to role-play big strong firefighter every time they have sex. He wants to find someone he can be vulnerable with, someone who will love him for his soft heart and quiet ways.

Brady’s life plans grind to a halt when his niece and nephew lose their parents in a tragic accident, and he becomes a dad overnight. His Developmental Coordination Disorder rules his life, but he fights both DCD and the fears that chase him every day, to give Maddie and Lucas a home. Agreeing to go to a friend’s wedding is a decision he regrets long before he even gets there.

But, he refuses to give in to his fear, even if he might do something that makes him a target for people’s comments and laughter. Meeting Eric, a huge man with a gentle voice and a flair for chivalry, he falls hard. Now, if only he can let himself get past his panic that Eric would never want someone like him, then maybe he could fall in love for real.
