If he insists on staying in my space and making me delicious dinners, he has no one to blame but himself for making me fall in love with him, right?

Chapter 1: Sal Henrik

If I didn’t get some sleep soon, I was going to burn the world down. Staggering into my apartment at four in the morning after a thirty-seven-hour flight from hell, I dropped all my shit in the living room and headed straight to my pitch-black bedroom.

There wasn’t any point in turning on a light when I was three seconds away from crashing in my bed I had dearly missed while being on the road for our international tour.

I stripped on the way before crawling under the sheets. Exhaling a heavy sigh as I closed my eyes, I melted into a boneless puddle, more than ready for sleep to claim me for the night.

“Is there some reason you’re in my bed?”

My eyes flew open as I startled back with a noise of shock from the sound of a man’s voice that did not belong to my roommate. In the darkness, I could see the faint outline of a person next to me I had somehow missed earlier. My heart jumped into my throat as I fumbled for the lamp on my nightstand. In true me-fashion, all I did was knock the stupid thing onto the floor and break it.

The stranger sat up with a sigh and turned on the other bedside table lamp. I squinted against the sudden brightness. My mind reeled at the sight of a gorgeous god of a man in my bed.

Whereas my reaction was one of fear, he didn’t seem the least bit unsettled, which was amazing, considering I’d woken him up. He ran his fingers through the black hair that framed his face, looking freshly tousled by a good fuck that gave me dirty thoughts. The sheets dipped low, making me realize we were both naked. That really didn’t help me think thoughts that weren’t about fucking.

The man appeared to be older than me by quite a few years. His flinty gray eyes watched me with an intensity that made my heart pound. His handsome face had an annoyed frown on it as he studied me with disdain. “Again, I’ll ask: is there some reason you’re in my bed?”

My fear morphed into rage. “Your bed? What are you talking about? The better question is, what the hell are you doing in my bed?”

I may have been deeply flustered by the appearance of the naked stranger, but he was almost infuriatingly cool, calm, and collected. “I refuse to argue semantics with you at this ridiculous hour. Remove yourself from my presence at once.”

What kind of asshole used the word “semantics” at four in the morning? His authoritative tone rankled me. Who did this guy think he was? A prince who could order me around as if I was a peon?

My stubborn streak asserted itself. “I’m not going anywhere! If anything, I should call the cops and have you arrested for breaking and entering!”

“I have done no such thing.” He narrowed his eyes in a warning glare that made my heart skip a beat for all the wrong reasons. Damn him for being so attractive! “You seem to suffer from the delusion that I’m a trespasser when you’re the one who broke into my room.”

My temper flared as I raised my voice. I did not need that type of bullshit before 5:00 a.m. after a hard day of travel on the heels of a long world tour. All I wanted to do was sink into dreams. “Because I live here!”

Like I Needed cover


One night isn’t supposed to lead to love.

Jamie Stone is rich, beautiful, and bored out of his skull. The past few years have been an endless round of parties, and the decadence has lost its lustre. When a late night decision to get away lands him in the small seaside town of Heather Bay, Jamie’s convinced he’s made a mistake.

Heather Bay is no Ibiza, but it does have Will.

Will is stressed, stretched, and doesn’t have time for anything but work. He’s too busy trying to keep his head above water to focus on the London party boy who keeps ending up in his bed. Jamie is nothing but a distraction, but Will can’t resist coming back for more, especially with the harsh realities of farming nipping at his heels.

With the clock ticking on Jamie’s stay and the chaos of lambing season fast approaching, both men will have to look beyond themselves and let go of their fears. If they can, they might find the one thing they’ve always needed.

Like I Needed is a steamy and sweet hook-ups to lovers contemporary MM romance featuring a city boy with a hedonistic reputation, a gruff farmer in need of a break, endless amounts of snow, friends with no boundaries, terrible scrambled eggs, and the breath-taking beauty of the Yorkshire moors.

It is book three in the Heather Bay series and while it can be read as a standalone, it’s best enjoyed as part of the series.

Heph and Ant are both cinnamon buns deserving of love

Fireforged coverFireforged by Sam Burns & W.M. Fawkes

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

I’m so glad these two are back in their modern mythology universe and this series in particular.

I loved book one, in which the ultimate douchebag Hermes went a long way to restoring his reputation as something other than a flakey flyboy.

Here we get the goods on Hephaestus, God of the Forge, the ultimate blacksmith and generally put-upon guy who’s been deliberately used and abused by all his Olympian relatives since day one.

With a wee bit of poetic license, the authors have taken one of the lesser-known Erotes (a collective of winged gods associated with love and sexual intercourse), Eros’ brother Anteros, God of Requited Love, and given him the spotlight and I’m so here for it.

The poor lad gets mistaken for his brother often so I was super excited when it became clear he was going to be the one at the heart of this story.

Essentially it continues on from the events of the first book, with the Titans still roaming free and Chronos determined to overthrow his disobedient children.

The romance is a gentle one, Anteros doesn’t expect to find a gentle giant, who he believes is the most handsome man he’s ever seen, scars and all, when he’s sent to find out which side Hephaestus will take.

And Heph, he’s so used to being screwed over by anyone from Olympus that it takes time for his barriers to fall.

I wasn’t expecting the way the story takes a turn here, the Titan who gets his just desserts isn’t who I thought it would be, but it’s all the more satisfying for it.

Anteros and Hephaestus are a sweet pair, both looking to find someone with who they can be both the caregiver and also the receiver of love and devotion.

As they spend more time together, each one brings a comfort to the other that draws them closer and when danger threatens, Heph’s support of Anteros’ desire to stay and fight is the catalyst which spills them over into love.

With surprising twists, Sam and W.M. take this middle book and move the plot on with ease, building up to the big confrontation that’s going to come next in Ares’ book.

I can’t wait to see who he’s going be falling for!
