EBook---Secret-Simon

Blurb

Simon
Being the nephew of one of the most infamous mob bosses in the world isn’t easy. Our family has enemies everywhere, and no one is safe without protection.

Here I am at college with a fresh start, a new last name, and secrets hidden from those around me—life is going according to plan. Then one day on campus, I see him…and I want him to strip me bare…in more ways than one.

Rush
Abernathy is more than just the university I attend. It’s my destiny, my namesake. Singing and entertaining are who I am, but my father wants me to major in something more appropriate for the name I carry.

I’ve resigned myself to being who my father wants, doing what he wants. Then Simon comes into my life…and turns everything upside down. Now I have a reason to fight for what I want.

Who knew our love story would lead to secrets revealed, murderous plots, and finding our forever buried under so many lies?

Hopefully, we’ll live long enough to see it.

*Trigger: Violence and mention of suicide

Excerpt

Figuring out how to begin my story was the hardest part, but I knew when it was over, there was a good chance Rush would walk out that door and never return. I supposed it didn’t matter how I started—the end would be the same, most likely.

“I’m about to tell you a lot of shit, Rush. You’re not going to like most of it, and I understand you may never want to see me again afterward.” He was about to interrupt, but I held up a finger. “Don’t make a promise you don’t know if you can keep by saying ‘nothing I tell you will change how you feel,’ because that’s bullshit. What I will ask is only one thing. Let me tell the story to the end before you walk out of here.”

“You’re so sure I’ll leave?”

I nodded. “Yeah.”

Rush tightly fisted his hands together on his lap, readying himself, no doubt. “Okay, tell me.”

Eight grew up and fell in love – awwww!

41fsu9vCPCSSecret Simon by Davidson King

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Eight grew up and fell in love – awwww!

But this is so much more than that. It’s Haven Hart after all, so it wouldn’t be a romance without a side order of dangerous people trying to kill our heroes!

In this instance, Simon manages to get himself caught up in a college relationship with Rush, a guy who seems, on the face of it, to have a pretty simple life apart from his close connection as a member of the family who founded Abernathy University.

However, it becomes clear pretty quickly there’s more going on with Rush’s father than first meets the eye and what we then get is a caper of the highest order as first Simon, and then Snow and the rest of the Manos family, get embroiled with an Irish mobster.

The humour you’d expect from a story from this author is all there. Snow is his usual fabulous self, but what I loved most about this story was seeing just how much Simon is a Manos.

He is studying business because he wants to become involved in his family’s less than pristine clean dealings and he has no hesitation about facing danger to protect those he loves.

At times it was difficult to think of these two as college age (Simon is just 20 and Rush a year older) because of what they were dealing with. But that’s not to say there weren’t very sweet falling in love, first time with you moments too, because there were.

I was very happy with this book, kidnap threats, dodgy dealings, drive by attempted car assassinations and all the rest!

High drama, high emotion and a happy ending, what’s not to like?!

inevitable cover

Blurb

The three of us were never impossible. We were always inevitable.

When Drew meets Ezra, he doesn’t expect much. A one-night stand and a quick goodbye in the morning. That’s how these things usually go. Only there’s nothing usual about Ezra and the connection that forms between them.

When Ezra meets Drew, he doesn’t expect much. A distraction and parting as strangers after a night of meaningless fun. That’s how these things usually go. Only there’s nothing meaningless about Drew and the relentless spark between them that just refuses to disappear.

When Bas meets Ezra… things get complicated. As if being hopelessly in love with his best friend isn’t painful enough. Throw in an unexpected friendship that develops with the one-time hookup of said best friend, and the results are messy at best.

But sometimes beautiful things emerge from messy and complicated beginnings, and where two isn’t enough, three might be just perfect.

Teaser

“Wow. Hot.” Bas tilted his head up and murmured the words into Drew’s ear. And just because he was Bas, he also took his sweet time giving Ezra a slow once over.

“That’s him,” Drew said.

Bas’s brows shot up as he concentrated his attention back on Drew. “Ezra?”

Another spike of lust shot through Drew’s body at the way Bas’s tongue curled around the name, managing to make the word sound like a dirty promise.

“Yeah.”

“Go talk to him.”

Drew pulled away to stare at Bas. “What?”

Bas peered over Drew’s shoulder at Ezra. “And better hurry. It doesn’t look like he’s planning to stick around.”

Drew whirled back toward Ezra, and as if on que, saw the back of Ezra’s head as the man made his way toward the exit through the crowd.

“Go.” Bas was laughing as he gave Drew a push.

Probably.

Maybe.
