The Cowboy's Rockstar 5x8 - Ebook

Blurb

River lives in a world that most dream of. He’s the lead singer of the Kingdom of Extasy, his career is strong, and his fanbase is even stronger. However, looks can be misleading.

He is trapped in a loveless, chaotic, and toxic relationship, unable to escape the cage he’s been locked in. With help from an unexpected friend, he ends up on the Black Meadow Ranch, finding his outlook on the world around him changing. Even his view of love.

Winston’s life is filled with laughter, good friends, and work. But he’s longed for a family of his own. When he’s asked to help a friend in need, he shifts his focus from work to helping them heal. After meeting River, he struggles each day between his head and his heart, not certain which one he should follow. Winston knows he has to choose if he should put his heart on the line again and risk the possibility of finding the one that just may complete him.

Both men are each searching for the balance that love can bring. Their dreams align, but can they both overcome their fears and be each other’s forever one?

This story is the second book in The Black Meadow series. It is an Omegaverse and Non-shifter mPreg Romance. Disclaimer: This book mentions drug and physical abuse, but contains lots of fluff and love.

Excerpt

River stared into the mirror, wondering who the stranger was looking back at him.

Who the fuck are you?

Everything about his appearance was completely wrong—from the hair to the eyes and lips, nothing seemed right. Reaching up, he took out the contacts, dropping them in the sink before turning on the water, watching as they disappeared down the drain.

Why the hell did I start wearing these? One word: Otávio.

It was Otávio who’d suggested that he should wear contacts. River wasn’t sure why the fuck he agreed to wear the damn things when he loved his light gray eyes. They weren’t unique, but they were his.

Lifting his head, he stared in the mirror, but he was still looking at a stranger. Reaching up, he snatched off the blond wig he was wearing, not caring about the pins holding it in place. He glared at the offending thing before throwing it to the floor.

The wig was another of Otávio’s suggestions.

He started removing the pins holding his long curly black hair in place, watching with fascination as the deep onyx waves cascaded over his right shoulder. He giggled like a kid, twirling his fingers in his hair. Growing up, kids used to ask him if he dyed his hair, but it was all natural—he attributed it to his Cape Verdean heritage.

River raised his gaze and expected to recognize the man in the mirror, but he still saw a stranger. Grabbing one of the hotel towels, he put it under the running water, soaking the material, and without hesitation, roughly scrubbed the makeup off his face.

He sighed when he saw the first patch of his soft ochre complexion come into view and froze when a flood of memories and hurtful emotions came back to him seeing the large bruise on his left cheek—the reason he agreed to wear the wigs, contacts, and makeup. He had to hide the abuse.

Good thing no one ever sees me without makeup.

River doubted anyone remembered what he looked like before he became rich and famous. His fear “was” of them finding out that the spoiled, cold, controlled, and calculating man they saw in the magazines was a fraud, but in truth “he’s” a fucking coward behind closed doors.

I haven’t been in control of my life for a very long time.

Honeymoon Refrain Cover

Blurb

When his fiancé leaves him at the altar, Andrew Wellman runs straight to Bliss.

After spending the last year of his life busting his butt on the new resort off the south coast of Florida, all Andrew has to do is stick the landing—a gorgeous wedding and a honeymoon to blow the socks—and everything else—off his groom-to-be. But when he finds his fiancé buried deep not in wedding preparations but in his best friend, Andrew calls the whole thing off and cashes in that plane ticket for a solo honeymoon.

Rock star Cord Fabien’s whole life blew apart when his band broke up.

Now, he owes his label a solo album, but all he wants to do at the new gay resort run by the mysterious billionaire Adrien Bliss and is hide from the paparazzi and lick his wounds. But when one sad interior designer catches his eye, Cord finds the inspiration to make beautiful music again.

Two men, completely adrift, find in each other the strength to pursue their passions. But Bliss can’t last forever, and the lives they’ve left behind are waiting to shatter a romance that bloomed in paradise.

Excerpt

He leaned against me, taking a swig of his water and staring out at the moon, hanging over the ocean like a giant silver coin. “It’s really perfect for a honeymoon, isn’t it?” He smelled of the resort soap, jasmine and sea salt, and the natural tang of manly sweat. It wasn’t something I’d ever thought of as sexy before, but on him, sitting there on the beach, it really was.

I kissed the top of his head and rested my cheek against his hair. “It is. Your honeymoon’s gonna be the best when you have it for real. Maybe your husband’ll rent the penthouse and keep you here a month. Nothing but sun and sea and a giant heart-shaped bed.”

He chuckled at that, swallowing his bite of sandwich before answering. “There are no heart-shaped beds anywhere in this resort. This isn’t the eighties.”

“Heart-shaped hot tub?”

“Now those, we have,” he agreed, and turned to look up at me, pupils enormous in the dark. “I don’t need that, though. As long as he’s here, and not in my apartment, fucking Ian.”

“Sweetheart, I wouldn’t fuck Ian with someone else’s dick,” I promised, on the assumption that Ian was the best friend. I might have been offering to take him on a honeymoon, but I wasn’t sure anymore. The conversation had gone around in a circle, and all I knew was that I wanted to take the sadness out of his eyes.

Apparently it worked, since he giggled, shoulders shaking and eyes lit with mirth. “What about me?”

I grinned as I leaned forward and gave him a peck on the lips. “Not planning on needing anything but my own for you.”

When he gave me a dreamy smile, I leaned in again and took his mouth, wrapping one hand around the back of his neck and pressing in. He gave a tiny whimper and clung to me, fingers wrapped tight around my arms.

When I pulled back, he stayed there, eyes closed and lips parted, breath coming in short pants. “I’m going to need you to go ahead and prove that.”

Superbly paced and beautifully written holiday island romance

Honeymoon Refrain EbookHoneymoon Refrain by Harley Grace

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book was an absolute delight. Perfectly paced, the narrative essentially rolled through three acts as Cord and Andrew met, started their relationship and then set off into their happy ever after.

The sense of place is incredibly well done, Bliss Island is a visceral impression in the book, the heat of the sun, the sound of the waves and the excitement of the tourists visiting a gay friendly resort is central to the book.

I really loved that there was not a jot of unnecessary drama in this, there’s no miscommunication, no lack of communication, no annoying angsting just to set obstacles in the path.

Even Cord’s ex, and fellow musician, Jase wasn’t as big an arse as he first might have appeared. Andrew’s ex, Thom on the other hand, yeah he was definitely an utter knob.

There isn’t really anything ground-breaking in this book, it’s just a good romance well told, it was an enjoyable read where I just felt chilled through, no fear that there’d be something drop out of nowhere at the 70% mark just to kick things up.

I adored all the secondary characters here, especially resort owner Adrien and Trace, Cord’s neighbour and the island’s resident pilot. The brief glimpse we get of Chef Eli and the introduction of cleaner Finley right at the end all bode well for future books!
