C’est cela l’amour, et tu es mon rêve…

Bryce:

Hockey is my life. This game pulled me from my tiny Quebec hometown all the way to the NHL, and now? I’m the number one player in the league. Team capitaine for the Montréal Étoiles. I’m shattering records and packing arenas every night, and I’ve promised my team: we’re going to win the Stanley Cup this year.

But I’m keeping big secrets. I’m thinking dangerous thoughts, and dreaming about impossible things. Like how a man’s lips might taste, or how his body might feel in my arms.

I can’t go there. I’ve got to focus. Team. Hockey. Cup. What my heart wants doesn’t matter.

So why am I falling head over heels at the NHL’s All-Star Weekend?

I can’t do this. I can’t fall for Hunter Lacey. He’s a hockey player. We’re both in the NHL. He’s on a different team. And, oh yeah, he’s straight.

Hunter:

I’m a middle-of-the-road, nothing-special hockey player. Good enough to be drafted into the NHL, and I’ve been on the roster for the past two years, but I’ll never make the Hall of Fame. I’m just trying to keep my head up and get through each day, until this wild ride comes to an end.

Deep thinking isn’t really my thing. Look inside myself? Lotta beer and burgers there.

I never thought I’d be invited to the All-Star Weekend, but here I am. And there’s my hero: Bryce Michel, league superstar.

Saying hello to Bryce turns into hours spent together on the ice, and then an invite to dinner, and then days at each other’s side. I’m in heaven. He’s my hero, and this is the coolest—

Then Bryce’s lips land on mine, and the world turns upside down.

**Gravity is an MM romance featuring bi/gay awakening, friends to lovers, team shenanigans, fast-paced hockey, ice-melting sizzle, and swoony Québécois love songs.**

A right Royal romance delights in this ice hockey series

Royal-Lines-jpgRoyal Lines by R.J. Scott & V.L. Locey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ooh I did like that. What I’ve been enjoying the most about the Boston Rebels series is just how radically different each book is and this was no exception.

Royal romances take careful handling imho as you have to see the pressures getting involved with a country’s ruling family can bring while still being believable.

RJ and Vicki nailed it with Kaleb and Marquis and a lot of that was down to the latter’s status as an ice hockey star name.

The heat is also turned up high for this pair and there’s some lovely conversation between the two men as they keep trying to kid themselves it’s just temporary sex.

Throw in a fairytale setting with leaky old castles and siblings determined to give a prince grey hair, and what you’re left with it a delightful read.

Blurb

They’re setting fire to the sheets, but a romance between an out and proud hockey star and a reformed playboy prince could end up burning them both.

Marquis Miller might be one of the NHL’s best players, single, wealthy, and open about his sexuality, but he knows his future lies in taking over the reins of the family’s multimillion-dollar company after retirement. Jumping on the family jet, he heads to Europe, tasked with schmoozing a prince into accepting his company’s bid on a significant castle renovation. Assuming he’d encounter a dusty old monarch well into his dotage, Marquis is stunned to find out that Kaleb is a young, sophisticated, beautiful man with an impressive work ethic, to-die-for eyes, and a certain flair that captures Marquis’s attention.

Dragging the royal palace into the twenty-first century is one battle after another for the king’s youngest son. Juggling renovations, his royal duties, and attempting to reverse his former playboy prince reputation is impossible when everyone keeps dumping problems in his lap. His chaotic life takes yet another turn when an American hockey player arrives at the castle to discuss a renovation project. Marquis is the antithesis of Kaleb’s newly minted, responsible outlook on life, a jock, a player, willing to take chances. Although the forbidden sex is hot, Kaleb is not ready to turn on his family responsibilities for a pretty smile and a smart mouth.

Family is everything and romance will always come in second, until they open their hearts to love.

Excerpt

He bowed and extended a hand. “Marquis Miller,” he introduced himself, and I took his hand and shook it firmly. He didn’t let go. I didn’t let go. There was something there. A flicker of appreciation in his expression, the tip of his tongue wetting his lower lip, his eyes widening, and I didn’t have to wonder about his appreciation or his inclination. 

If he could read my mind, he’d know that he ticked every single one of my boxes, and the image of him lying naked, with all that beautiful dark skin on cool silk sheets, sprawled and waiting for me, had all the blood in my body rushing south, and I was getting hard. The fuck?

“Prince…” I stopped. “I’m Prince Kaleb. Call me Kaleb.”

Finally, he released my hand. I swear if he offered to fuck me, I’d be dropping my pants and leaning over the nearest surface.

“I’m here from Miller & Miller.”

“Uh-huh.” Words failed me, and an answering frown creased between his eyes. 

“You were expecting me, I believe. Regarding your castle works?”

It wasn’t the castle I was worried about right now. It was the fact I was getting an inappropriate hard-on at my first sight of this glorious man in what was supposed to be a serious business meeting. I’d never seen such beauty up close, and suddenly, I understood how my sister could meet and fall for someone in the space of a few days. Not that my heart had anything to do with how I felt. I was tired of all the shit, the worries, the stress, and abruptly, I wanted my old university days back when I could sleep with anyone I wanted.

Because, right about now, with everything whirling in my head, the thought of Marquis Miller in my bed and fucking me into tomorrow, well, damn the consequences. Bring it on.
