Wonderful Sci-Fi romance from Kelly

uncommon-ground
Uncommon Ground
by Kelly Jensen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Oh I do love me a good Sci-Fi story and that’s just what Kelly Jensen has created here.

Aliens in New York sounds like the start of any number of 1950’s Saturday matinee show reels but what it actually is, is a lovely little romance with a twist, a melancholic air and a dose of unexpected action.

I loved both Dillon and Lang, their swoony and sexy encounters worked well to contrast between the alien and mystery elements and I loved the way this book also slotted into Felice Stevens’ Memories with the Breakfast Club universe.

The alien aspect was never overdone, it felt like you were seeing through a secret curtain that had been drawn aside and I love it when a book gives me that sense of realness.

Roll on book two!

Isha has spent the last year watching his BFF get his happily-ever-after. He’s proud of Dom, but…it hurts to see him so free while Isha’s love life is still on lockdown. Only Isha’s ex-wife knows the secret that he’s kept caged for so long—that he’s queer too, and he’s lonely.

Jude’s too chained to his work to notice what he’s missing by being terminally single, but a new face in the village soon catches his attention. City boy Isha is gorgeous, and when he starts to haunt Jude’s reptile shop as well as the hook-up app on his phone, he’s a welcome distraction from Jude’s business problems.

For a control freak like Isha, letting Jude under his skin is an existential meltdown, but Jude’s not in the market to be anyone’s queer crisis, not when he’s facing troubles of his own. Unlocking their lives could push both men apart forever, but it might be a risk worth taking if sharing is the key to their happy future.

Beth saves the best course for last and serves up a delicious romance

42105567.jpgIndulge Me by Beth Bolden

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Five fat ‘not quite Michelin’ stars for this concluding book in what has been a totally outstanding series from Beth Bolden.

I was very lucky to beta read this book, not that it really needed anything changing because it was practically perfect, and I have to say, Beth saved the best for last.

We needed to see ‘The Bastard‘ through everyone else’s eyes so that when we finally got to see him through Kian’s, it emphasised just how different he was.

I loved this book. Bastian is so much more than just the bad-tempered chef, he’s passionate and loyal, loving and supportive, quick-tempered but capable of some serious slow burn.

Some of the sexy times in this book are Beth’s finest, she raises the temperature to boiling point and then lets the emotions explode.

I shall miss this merry band of chefs, and the special people they let into their lives, but I will picture them all happily cooking and loving until the final tables are cleared.

Thanks Beth, for the trust in letting me peek at your words before the rest of the world, and for bringing these men to life.

I’ve loved all the couples but Kian and Bastian will always be my favourites.

Fall in love through the seasons with Isamu and Brian

Copy of tales of bryant ebookTales of Bryant by V.L. Locey

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Full review tomorrow.

I first read the start of this story in the excellent charity anthology Love For All Seasons which came out last year and which raised money for The Matthew Shepard Foundation and The Albert Kennedy Trust.

V.L. had given us the start of Isamu and Brian’s relationship in Brioche for Two and it was ridiculously cute.

Now, with Tales of Bryant, she gives the rest, following a similar seasonal format as we see them pass through from dating, to getting serious, to the trials and tribulations of a relationship and to their Happy Ever After.

This isn’t a long book but it’s still packed full of character development, ups and downs, sexual connections and emotions and it brings New York to life in vivid detail.

He’s hot for teacher

NHL star Tristan Holt may be at the top of his game, but he’s already thinking one play ahead. Hitting the books in the off-season means he’ll have a business degree to fall back on when it’s time to hang up his hockey skates.

But his straightforward plan is complicated by his undeniable attraction to his sexy sociology professor, Sebastian Cruz.

Impressed by Tristan’s brain as well as his brawn, Sebastian can’t help lusting after the gorgeous jock. With tenure on the line, Sebastian won’t break the rules by becoming involved with one of his students—at least, not until the end of term. Once final grades are posted, though, their naughty mutual fantasies can become reality.

Tristan’s not sure he’s up for being the poster boy for openly gay hockey players, but Sebastian’s never been the type of man to keep his sexuality—or his relationships—in the closet. For Tristan, being with Sebastian might mean risking more than just his heart.

One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!

Excerpt

For a time the music distracted him. Tristan swayed in place, caught up in the energy of the now-substantial crowd and enjoying the rare opportunity to hear his favorite songs played live. That wasn’t always easy for a classic rock fan whose favorite groups no longer performed, and who, generally speaking, wasn’t all that into cover bands.

But soon the novelty wore off. Tristan noticed the time and the distinct lack of one Sebastian Cruz. Like the flame of a candle, his excitement flickered and abruptly sputtered out, leaving nothing but wispy smoke in its wake.

Concerts were a lot more fun when you had someone else to share the experience with. Couples and groups of friends filled the venue. Tristan was one of the few who watched alone, conspicuous in the way he stood apart from the others.

He frowned, deposited his empty bottle on the tray of a passing server, and made his way to the bar for another beer. During the regular season he normally limited himself to two, preferring to get his carbs from food instead of alcohol, but fuck it. Training camp didn’t start for nearly another two months. After being stood up, he was due another drink or three.

Tristan snorted. Why was he kidding himself? Professor Cruz never had any intention of meeting him. He’d probably regaled his highbrow academic friends with the story of his student’s clumsy attempt to ask him out. No doubt they had a good laugh about it while drinking wine and eating canapés or whatever the hell else snobby professors did in their spare time. Tristan already knew what Sebastian Cruz thought of athletes.

He’d just flagged down a bartender and placed his order when he sensed a presence at his side. Tristan turned and found himself face-to-face with the man himself. Professor Cruz was dressed casually in dark jeans, boots, and a button-down shirt. He’d left the top two buttons undone, and Tristan’s gaze automatically went to the prominent collarbones covered in smooth golden-brown skin. All the moisture fled his mouth at the thought of putting his lips to the divot at the base of Professor Cruz’s throat. Tristan wanted to bite and lick there, inhale until the scent of sweat and man made him drunk with lust.

“Mr. Holt.”

Tristan swallowed hard. “Professor,” he rasped. Sebastian, Tristan really wanted to call him. The name appealed to him as much as its owner. Tristan wished he had the right to use it whenever he pleased.

The bartender delivered Tristan’s beer and grabbed the money Tristan had placed on the bar top. He jerked his head at Professor Cruz. “What can I get you?”

“Single malt, neat. Glenlivet, preferably. If not, the best you have.”

Of course he would drink Scotch and order it neat, the sexy bastard. Tristan pictured him as the leading man in some classic black-and-white film—crystal tumbler in one hand, a thick cigar between his lips, a plume of smoke curling around his sharp-jawed face. The image sent blood rushing straight to Tristan’s cock. Shit. There went all his bitter thoughts from a few minutes before, carried away by the rumbling bass of Professor Cruz’s voice and the sight of his dark-brown eyes and darker, finger-tousled hair.

Tristan almost sighed. He was weak—he knew it—but how could he be strong with Professor Cruz standing here looking like that? Tristan wanted to drop to his knees. Only awareness of his surroundings kept him upright.

After starting a tab, Professor Cruz inclined his head, silently encouraging Tristan to follow. They moved away from the bar to a small gap along the back wall.

“How’s the band?” Professor Cruz asked, his eyes fixed on the stage.

Tristan watched, wetting his mouth as Professor Cruz took a slow sip of the amber liquid in his glass. “They’re good, I think,” Tristan replied. “I stopped paying attention a little while ago.”

Professor Cruz glanced at him. “Why?”

Tristan smiled wryly. “I was waiting for you.”
