COVER

Blurb

Falling in love was the easy part. When we have to face more tragedy, will it bring us closer or drive us apart?

Now the tour is over, Isaac has to adapt to depending financially on someone else for the first time.

When my world gets thrown into turmoil again, I need to learn that relying emotionally on others isn’t a bad thing.

We have to face our biggest challenge together—creating a different dream from the one we had envisioned.

Openly Yours is an MM paranormal romance with a loving tiger shifter, a sweet monkey shifter, enthusiastic family members, and lots of cuddles. Whilst it is set in an alternate universe where omegas give birth, there are no pregnancy or birth scenes in this book. It immediate follows the events of book one.

Trigger warning for scenes revolving around infertility.

TAGLINE

Excerpt

“You had news. Is it about the Arches?”

I grinned, unable to keep it from him.

“They accepted our offer?”

“Yes.”

Jesse bounced up and down in my arms, squealing excitedly. “That’s fantastic!”

“We’ve got to get all the building and land checks done and a survey, so it’s not a done deal yet. But all being well, our youth centre is one step closer to opening.”

Jesse grasped my face and kissed me hard. “It’s exciting, isn’t it?”

“Very.”

His eyes widened. “You should invite your dads to come and stay so we can show them the Arches.”

“I’d been thinking about that.” I carried him over to the sofa and sat down with him on my lap. “Maybe it’s about time we moved out of this flat.”

Jesse tilted his head to the side. “Why?”

“Well, right now, if we want to invite my family down, they have to stay in a hotel.” I paused, measuring my next words carefully. “And at some point, we’re going to have a family, Jesse. There’s not going to be room for children in a one-bedroom flat.” I stroked my thumbs over his lower back. “You wanted a house filled with music and the patter of tiny feet, remember?”

Jesse nodded, but he didn’t speak. His eyes were brimming with tears, and his chin wobbled.

“And I wanted a big bath.”

That made him laugh. “We need a huge bath.”

I stared into his dark eyes. “I want to find our forever home, Jesse. And I want to get married.”

Jesse frowned. “We can’t, not until—”

I silenced him with a kiss. “We know roughly when your heats will be. We can plan around it. We’re already mated. You know I want to spend the rest of my life with you. Now I want to show everyone else that—your family and mine.”

“And the world?” Jesse asked. “Because we’re not gonna get a cosy little wedding.”

I smiled. “The whole world. I’m yours, Jesse, now, always, and openly.”

Jesse gasped. “I’ve got it!”

“Got what?”

“The title of the song I’m going to write for you.”

I raised my eyebrows. “Will you share it with me?”

He smiled mischievously. “Nope. I think I’m gonna keep it a secret.”

I tickled him until I reduced him to a giggling, writhing wreck on my lap. Then I flipped him onto the sofa and lay over him, tickling him more until he was gasping for air.

“Now are you going to tell me?”

He put his hands around my neck as his breathing slowly returned to normal. “‘Openly Yours’.”

I nuzzled his nose with my own. “That’s beautiful.”

“So are you.”

We looked at each other, my heart filling as I saw how much love radiated from his eyes and smile. I kissed him, teasing his mouth with my tongue. “Let’s set a wedding date and start looking at houses.”

Jesse nodded. “Okay.”

This shifter book takes an unusual approach and it completely works

COVEROpenly Yours by Colette Davison

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

While I liked book one, it was a pretty typical omegaverse shifter romance.

In this one though, I was very much impressed by how Colette brought something different to the trope and examined infertility in an mPreg world.

It was handled with sensitivity and care and I found all the emotional turmoil and the journey both Jesse and Isaac went through utterly compelling.

Things are also moving along nicely with both Jesse’s career and the new Youth Centre and I liked the way both men sank into their new relationship roles.

The wedding was sweet and the book is as steamy as the first one with very little unnecessary drama.

Now I’m seriously excited for book three which looks like it’s going to be a cracker.

Solid opener for Colette Davison’s new shifter omegaverse series

SECRETLY MINE COVERSecretly Mine by Colette Davison

My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars

I enjoyed this solid opener in a new shifter omegaverse focusing on a musician and his bodyguard.

There wasn’t anything particularly new or novel to it, but I liked both Jessie and Isaac.

Their relationship development, while it was fairly quick, didn’t feel insta-lovey but more an organic growth from a mutual attraction and closed proximity.

I did very much appreciate the difference in shifter types though, Isaac was a tiger and Jessie was a monkey and they were incredibly sweet together, especially in shifted form.

I did guess the villain from the first time they appeared on screen (I read a lot of this type of suspense book and was a mad Agatha Christie fan in my younger days 😁 ) but I still think the stalker plot plays out well throughout.

Book two is also going to be about Jessie and Isaac and I’m interested to see how the author works the tension plot she’s hinted at with a sneak peek at the end of this one into the overall narrative.

I think it will be an unusual direction to take and I’m looking forward to reading it.
