Things are rotten in the jungle and I love it!

Guns n' Boys: Gilded Agony (Guns n' Boys, #7)Guns n’ Boys: Gilded Agony by K.A. Merikan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is why I read. Books like this which cause your heart to pound, your stomach to churn and your blood to boil.

Books which take you into the depths of a Columbian jungle and leave you fervently devouring the words on the page so closely just in case you miss something vital in the life of a favourite pair of characters.

This book brings Dom & Seth back in turmoil, two years have passed since the events of Bloodbath and there’s something definitely wrong in paradise.

When a shipment goes missing, a snake is let loose in the garden and Dom and Seth drift further apart as the pressures of running the local cartel bring frictions into the heart of their family.

This book is brutal but not quite as violent as previous ones in the series. But make no mistake, it will still rip your heart out. Now, when’s Book Eight out again?…

Best one in this series with some good plot twists

No Fear (No Shame, #3)No Fear by Nora Phoenix

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Definitely the best one yet, the plotting has been tightened up considerably and the narrative is about more than just the sexual relationships of the characters.

Here we get a new couple, Josh’s estranged brother Aaron and Indy’s jiu jitsu trainer Blake and it’s a little bit kinky but without ever really tripping over into full on puppy play.

The best thing about this book though is the vast movement on the main story arc which has been running through the series – Indy’s vicious ex and his Boston mobster threat.

Without spoiling anything, I absolutely loved the twists and the way the situation was handled here and I’m looking forward to seeing what happens now.

The romance element of this one with Aaron and Blake actually worked surprisingly well given it wasn’t really the main focus. I liked seeing Aaron’s sexual awakening and it was handled with consideration and skill.

Now roll on book four and what is already setting up to be an intriguing poly relationship.

Will and Patrick are back!

Will & Patrick's Endless Honeymoon (Wake Up Married Book 7)Will & Patrick’s Endless Honeymoon by Leta Blake

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


In which Will and Patrick have sex a lot!

I love Patrick, his unfiltered and totally honest take on life bursts out of him with incredible insight and brutally destroys all who might try to hurt his Will.

But he’s also empathic, he’s kind and he’s bewildered with humanity as often as he’s frustrated by it and this is what makes him a brilliant character.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I love Will too, who just wants the whole world to be happy and who finds it so hard to believe he should be included in that happiness too.

The family dynamics are as mental as usual, both Will’s parents turning up on his honeymoon to add drama to the romantic and chilled vacation Patrick has planned so meticulously.

There’s lots of humour in this one, the sex (as previously mentioned) is hot and emotional, and ultimately, Will and Patrick’s honeymoon really is endless while they continue to love each other without restrictions.

Snow Falling Teaser 1


I should have known I wouldn’t get far. Frank grabbed my arm. “He’s not my kid. His pop will very much want to speak with you. Something tells me if you walk out that door, you’ll disappear, and I don’t have time to go lookin’ for you. So, I think you’ll come with us for now.” His firm tone made it clear it wasn’t a question.

When I looked around the police station, I was shocked that no cops were interfering in what was clearly a kidnapping. I shouldn’t have been too surprised. After all, in my book, police didn’t have a very good track record for doing what was right.

“Stranger danger!” I yelled, which just made Simon laugh.

“No, Snow, we aren’t strangers anymore. You come home and my pop will protect you. That’s what he does.”

Who the hell was his pop? Surviving was a lot about picking your battles. Looking around the precinct, it was obvious my choices weren’t going to win out. Frank and his goons weren’t going to let me pass. On the off chance I got away, then I’d have Roy and these guys chasing me.

“I don’t think I have a choice, do I?” Frank shook his head. “Okay then. Onward, my good man!”

If the limo wasn’t a huge giveaway that Simon’s pop was disgustingly rich, the enormous mansion with the iron gate was. Two large Ms were worked into the iron. The house had a medieval look about it. A fountain of fear was on display in the middle of the circular driveway, some sort of gargoyles spitting water out of their mouths… or was it their eyes? Gray stone, iron, and darkness made up this house. Whoever this guy was, he wasn’t just rich, he was powerful. Leaning over, I whispered in Simon’s ear, “Is your pop Tony Stark?”

Simon chuckled. “No silly, he’s Christopher Manos.”

Christopher Manos? Oh, son of a bitch. At least Iron Man was on the right side of justice.

“Come on, Snow, you can meet my pop!” Simon grabbed my hand and pulled me out of the limo with all his might. When we came to the stone steps and I looked up, I came face to face with not only the most dangerous man in this city, but the most gorgeous. He was broad, and I could see the muscles in his arms and legs even through his expensive suit. He had midnight black hair and obsidian eyes. There was no doubt he and Simon were related.

“Pop!” Simon ran into his arms. The man didn’t miss a beat. He scooped Simon up without ever taking his eyes off me. “That’s Snow. He saved me.”

“Mr. Manos, it’s a pleasure to meet you. I’ll have you know, I didn’t want to come here. I was forced. You have a beautiful home and a great kid and if you just let me go, I’ll happily walk home.”

He stared at me coldly. “You don’t know my home is beautiful, you haven’t seen it. Let’s rectify that. Come in.” He turned and walked inside. The nudge from Frank was likely the only encouragement I’d get.

I hope I don’t die.

Impressive debut novel from Davidson King

Snow FallingSnow Falling by Davidson King

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book is seriously good. For a debut novel, the skill which has gone into the plotting, the tightness of the narrative and the unique flavour of each of the MCs is very impressive.

On the face of it, this is your typical mobster related romantic thriller, but when you drill deeper into the story, there is a lightness to the author’s hand which results in sharp dialogue, a good store of secondary characters and world building, and a great chemistry between the MCs.

I loved both Christopher and Snow (and isn’t that cover image of him just gorgeous!), and their relationship built at a realistic pace. This isn’t a smexy heavy storyline but when they do happen, there is an honest mix of lust and emotion between the two men.

I thoroughly enjoyed this one and look forward to reading more from Davidson King.

Deacon’s Law: R.J. Scott

Cover Design: Meredith Russell
Length: 50,000 words approx.
Heroes Series
A Reason To Stay (Book #1) – Amazon US | Amazon UK
Last Marine Standing (Book #2) – Amazon US | Amazon UK

How can you trust the man who tried to kill you?

Undercover cop Deacon Shepherd lost everything trying to maintain his cover – the man he loved and the future he craved. He walked away and never looked back because it was the only way to keep Rafael alive.

The last thing he needs is to be dragged back in that world, but an attempt on Rafael’s life is enough to make him risk his heart again.

Rafael ‘Rafe’ Ramirez wakes up in the hospital, the victim of a hit and run. He’s horrified when the first face he sees is that of the man who betrayed him and left him for dead three years before. Witness protection had stripped Rafe of his family and friends, and now it seems his sacrifice to bring his Uncle to justice was for nothing.

Someone wants Rafe dead, and the only way he can stay alive is to go with the murdering drug dealer who broke his heart. But how can he ever trust Deacon, and how can Deacon protect Rafe without falling in love all over again?


Rafe opened his eyes, attempting to focus on the ceiling above him. He tried to lift his hand, but it felt as if there was lead in his veins, everything heavy and he couldn’t move. They’d told him he was getting better, so what the hell had happened? Had he relapsed? Why was he convinced that they’d taken him somewhere in an ambulance? That he’d leaned against a leather jacket that smelled of sunshine and soap? He blinked until the ceiling finally coalesced into the tiles he was familiar with.

Only there were no tiles.

Instead, the ceiling was a smooth white, and there were no strip lights, just a lampshade in a curious shade of blue. He blinked again. This didn’t make sense.

But when he opened his eyes, nothing had changed. The ceiling was still white, the lampshade blue, and the drapes at the window matched the shade. The drapes. There were drapes at the window. Confusion morphed into panic and he turned his head to the right to get a better feel for where he was and he saw…him.

Sprawled awkwardly in the chair, his head back, long limbs this way and that, clearly too big for the chair, was a specter from a past that wouldn’t leave him alone.


Intense fear sliced into Rafe.

They’d found him, had him strapped to a bed…was it Deacon who’d tracked him down and driven a car at him? He was paralyzed with a fear that made it hard to breathe, and he yanked at his hand, hoping to escape his restraints, only he wasn’t tied down, there was no rope. Instead his hand came up fast and he rolled sideways. Catching himself and coming off the bed, forgetting the fact that his leg was in a cast and toppling sideways, falling with a crash into a cabinet. He flailed but couldn’t stop himself falling, and he knew this was it – this time he was really going to die.

Deacon was up and at his side in an instant, and Rafe wanted to shut his eyes, wanted to block out seeing Deacon’s face again as he died, but he had to watch. He wanted Deacon to see his fear, and maybe that would stop him; maybe he could make Deacon stop and think.

“Shit, Rafe— Craig,” Deacon said, and reached for him, grasping his arms.

Terror became ice inside him, and Rafe stopped fighting; like a deer caught in headlights, he froze.

“What happened?” A second man stood in the doorway, someone Rafe didn’t know – tall, dark and dangerous-looking. Maybe this new arrival could stop Deacon?

“Help me,” Rafe forced out, looking past Deacon, scrambling to stand as the ice melted and he pushed himself to move.

“He woke up, saw me, and fell out of bed,” Deacon said, and the other man came right in. There were two of them, and there was little Rafe could do to get away. There and then, he screwed his eyes shut; nothing was going to save him now.

But there was no pain, no bullet. Instead, the two men helped him to stand, and then he felt the bed at the back of his thighs and they sat him down.

“Are you okay?” Deacon asked. Even with his eyes shut, Rafe recognized his voice. He would never forget the tone of it, or the coldness of the man who’d tried to kill him. He said nothing.

“Open your eyes,” the other man asked.


“Craig? Rafe? My name is Mac. We’re here to help you.”

But fear was choking him and he couldn’t breathe. “No,” he managed between attempts to inhale enough oxygen not to pass out.

“He’s panicking. What the hell did you do, D?”

“Tried to fucking kill him three years ago, remember?”

Clever second chance enemies to lovers romance

Deacon's Law (Heroes, #3)Deacon’s Law by R.J. Scott

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I had the privilege to proofread this so I only skim read it while looking for errors so it was a pleasure to actually sit and read it properly in the context of it being book three in the connected Heroes series.

It’s a clever approach to take to a romance between two people who knew they had something special but weren’t in a position to act upon it at the time – having to shoot someone will do that to your chances of happiness!

But RJ Scott manages to pull the narrative back from what could have been an overly dramatic and one-dimensional overly angsty storyline featuring dodgy prison escapees and insane cousins to deliver a really sweet second chance romance.
