AfterFelix-LM-Audiobook

Blurb

Sometimes the best love stories come in two parts.

When Felix met handsome journalist Max Travers, it was lust at first sight. It was just his luck that he then had to develop a terrible case of feelings and got his heart broken. However, two and a half years later, he’s over all of that. His job is going well, he has good friends, and he doesn’t lack for male company. Which, of course, is when Max has to come bursting back into his life.

Felix Jackson will always be the one who got away to Max. He’s spent their time apart regretting his actions and hoping for a second chance. When an accident lands him in Felix’s less than tender care, Max is determined to grab this opportunity. The only problem is that Felix is equally determined that he doesn’t.

From bestselling author, Lily Morton comes a story of missed opportunities, second chances, and two very stubborn men. This is the third book in the Close Proximity series, but it can be read as a standalone.

Excerpt

“How old do you think I am?” he says mock flirtatiously, leaning in close enough that I catch his scent of sandalwood. It brings back memories of rolling all over those soft sheets in that hotel room. I’ve been perturbed to find my mind straying to memories of that room a few more times than it should have over the last week.

He’s watching me intently again, and I swallow hard and tap my teeth thoughtfully. “I think probably sixty.” He opens his mouth in mock horror, and I laugh. “Only because you’re so wise,” I say reverently. “Being intelligent really piles the years on.”

He shakes his head. “I’m thirty-seven,” he says, trying not to laugh. “Can you see my crow’s feet?”

“A crow never made those lines. That’s surely got to be a bigger bird.” I wink at him as he laughs loudly. I eye the table where a book is sitting next to his pint. “What are you reading?”

He looks slightly awkward. “Ruth Rendell.”

“Oh, Inspector Wexford. My grandma used to watch those on the telly,” I say cheerfully.

“Thank you so much for that information,” he says darkly. “It’s made my day so happy.”

I laugh. “It’s like I carry sunshine wherever I go.” I eye him. “So, do you like reading crime novels?”

“I do.” He smiles. “I’ve always thought it would be incredibly easy to murder someone and get away with it, so I like it that people get found out in these books.”

I blink. “Said no man ever who hoped to get laid.”

He laughs. “I’m not going to murder you, Felix. Your arse is far too perky for that to happen.”

“I always knew my buttocks could save a life.”

He bites his lip, laughter brewing in those dark eyes as he leans forward. “The only way I’ll kill you is when you die from an overdose of the pleasure that my cock gives you.”

After draining my drink, I put the bottle on the table and stand up to grab my coat. “Pride goes before a fall, Max,” I say. “Maybe we’d better get you back to the hotel before you break something.”

Can Luke learn to love the man who left him?

Headmaster Luke Lawson is committed to saving his boarding school before a cash crisis sinks it. He’ll do anything to keep it afloat, even if that means accepting help from the man who broke his heart at uni.

Nathan’s offer to teach for free could be a blessing as long as Luke can harden his bruised heart. That’s tough when they’ll need to share living quarters and have a history of hook-ups. But Luke knows being compatible in bed isn’t enough to build trust. It can’t be when Nathan has always left him before morning.

This time around, it feels different. Nathan’s work overseas has changed him. Touched him. Opened a locked chamber in his heart that Luke is beginning to think must have been bruised in the past too.

As pressure mounts, can Luke trust that Nathan’s committed this time—not only to his school but to a shared future with him long term?

♥ Featuring a second chance at first love in close proximity, Luke is the third standalone novel in the Learning to Love series. Set in England’s glorious county of Cornwall, each book has a fulfilling happily ever after. ♥

CW: Non-explicit mentions of childhood anxieties.

About The Author

Copy of con riley avi copy

CON RILEY lives on the wild and wonderful Welsh coast, with her head in the clouds and her feet in the ocean.

Injury curtailed her enjoyment of outdoor pursuits, so writing fiction now fills her free time. Love, loss, and redemption shape her romance stories, and her characters are flawed in ways that make them live and breathe.

When not people-watching or reading, she spends time staring at the sea from her kitchen window. If you see her, don’t disturb her — she’s probably thinking up new plots.

Locke & Key are back and it’s a triumphant return!

The Magnolia Murders CoverThe Magnolia Murders by Aimee Nicole Walker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s always a risk going back to a beloved pairing but Aimee Nicole absolutely nails this return to the world of Royce Locke & Sawyer Key.

Fear not, there’s no messing about with their happy, other than the usual dilemmas about the next steps to take and worries about whether they’re good enough for the other.

The narrative which surrounds their relationship is a beautiful one, filled with the love that oozes between the two men and with declarations of pride and happiness.

But what I adore the most about this Savannah based series, is just how much work Aimee puts into making the mysteries top quality. You could take out the romance elements of the Locke & Key stories and still have a 5* murder mystery read.

Of course, it wouldn’t have the delicious relationship at its heart which makes these books so special. On top of that, we also get a secondary thread with Royce trying to reconnect to his sister and her kids which is played alongside the investigation.

What I really loved about Magnolia Murders is that we get two cases. Sawyer is promoted and put in charge of a Cold Case Team, looking into the deaths of three beauty queen pageant winners spanning back 38 years.

While Royce is offered a new job running a team working with teenagers interested in joining law enforcement, he’s still working fresh murders and there’s been a new Magnolia murder.

The clever way the cases unwind is brilliantly done, and there’ll be no spoilers here, suffice it to say, I was enthralled throughout as the twists and turns wrap around both the cold cases and the latest killing.

With the stakes getting higher, Royce and Sawyer work every angle to try and bring resolution to families who’ve been dealing with the loss of their daughters for decades while also bringing the heat to their own relationship.

The way they love each other is palpable, they’re both nurturing but also capable of stoking the fires of passion high and this book is explosively hot!

I’m so happy Aimee went back to this world, I’d happily read a bajillion more stories with this bunch of characters. I will say, you do need to read the Zero Hour Trilogy before these if you want to get the full depth of Royce & Sawyer’s love affair.

The Magnolia Murders also lays down some new story threads which I suspect are going to be running through the next two books as well and all I can say is bring it on!
