Best one yet – oozing with sexual chemistry and loads of emotion

57442258._SY475_Show Me by Neve Wilder

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Best one yet!

That was an absolutely stunning example of a sexual awakening romance with all the steam and all the feels Neve is so skilled at.

I absolutely adored Jesse and Sam and loved everything about way this narrative unfolded.

It begins with an accidental moment that sets off a chain of events which I could totally buy into.

Jesse’s attraction to Sam is built as much out of him being a nice guy as it his epic football player physique and Sam’s not missed how much he enjoys spending time with his housemate either.

The things they get up to are insanely hot, but the feels are all there, “hiding in plain sight” from the off too.

There’s very little drama, the only real tension point doesn’t even come from either of them and I seriously appreciated the lack of Sam angsting over his attraction to Jesse.

What starts out as a means to help Sam gain some savings with his NSFW project quickly turns into so much more.

The Epilogue is utterly delightful and explosively steamy.

I could have read another 80,000 words of these two exploring different ways to get off while full on loving each other with all the swoony boyfriend feels you’d ever want 😁

There are also guest appearances from all the previous characters, snarky jokes and sharp dialogue and Ansel still being as utterly mysterious as in the first two books.

Maybe his story after Cam gets a happy ending please Neve?!

Tanya brings all the feels

Kitchen Sink DomKitchen Sink Dom by Tanya Chris

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved this book, it wasn’t anything like us been expecting and it was all the better for that.

When I started reading it, I thought it’d be your typical kink exploration and sexual awakening, but no, it’s so much more.

It throws all of the above in with a dysfunctional family dynamic between Harrison and his older sister Taylor which still manages to be based in support for each other.

Then it adds in an element of suspense with subs going missing and potential human trafficking.

And finally, it brings together an eclectic bunch of people all working together to try and find 17-year-old Arlo.

I loved how everything entwined without ever becoming too overly complicated or dramatic.

Tanya obviously knows her kink and she knows how to play around with the intimacy of finding a perfectly matched pair.

Watching Cash and Harrison navigate their way to happiness via grumpy encounters and dawning awareness is a joy.

I can’t wait for the other two books in the series!

A combination of fake relationship and second chances makes this a winner

56241486Hit the Brakes by Beth Bolden

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I read this book so long ago as I beta read it for Beth but it’s still as clear as day to me.

It fits perfectly into Beth’s wider universe for any reader who is familiar with the rest of her books.

But it’s also a good standalone for those who don’t know who Colin O’Connor is (foolish people, he’s the best, go read Rainbow Clause immediately! 🥰 ) as he makes a special guest appearance.

And if you haven’t read Wyatt/Ryan’s Kitchen Gods romance or the other Riptide NFL books there’s still enough explanation given to root the narrative for Chase and Tate’s romance.

It’s a beautiful second chances relationship between two guys who almost kissed in one confused encounter in high school before going their separate ways.

Now 10 years later Chase is an NFL star with the Riptide and Tate is running his food truck and struggling to keep it going.

He has a chance to join the Food Truck Warriors but only if he can demonstrate higher sales

His sister realises superstar Chase is the same guy Tate had a crush on and launches a social media campaign making it sound like he loves their grilled cheese sandwich.

Chase reconnects with Tate, but this time he isn’t running away. He proposes a “fake boyfriend” scheme to help with Tate’s sales, and all bets are off.

Their sexual exploration and emotional connection really is on fire and there’s loads of humour in this one.

It’s probably the funniest so far as Tate fights against his feelings, which are all still just waiting to burst out.

It’s not all plain sailing though, Chase has a self-destructive streak which pops up whenever he’s under stress and he explodes big time when he’s challenged on his motivation for ‘coming out’ by a fellow gay NFL player.

Apart from Colin and Nick, these two make a great case for beating Heath and Sam into second place as my faves from Beth.

There’s just something truly wonderful about people finding love in a place where they almost had it, except for circumstances.

The Food Truck Warriors are all utterly brilliant and just wait till you get book three 😉
