Code Blue Cover

Blurb

Steve Frost had dreams of wearing the national championship belt in mixed martial arts, maybe even going pro, but instead, finds himself working as a security guard for the rich and famous in LA.

Quickly earning a reputation for his blunt and precise people management skills, he lands a position on the security team for an up-and-coming boyband, Atrous. Years later, he’s head of security. He knows these boys, and with countless tours, flights, car trips, public events, concerts, he’s closer to one band member in particular.

Jeremy’s been a pillar for Atrous since day one, but even more so these last few months. Now the face of the band more than ever, he’s also got himself the attention of a delusional stalker-fan.

When the fame and stress become too much, when Jeremy’s health takes a hit, Steve becomes Jeremy’s lifeline. But as Jeremy knows already, and as Steve is about to learn, not even the brightest star can shine forever.

About The Author

NR Walker Logo

N.R. Walker is an Australian author, who loves her genre of gay romance. She loves writing and spends far too much time doing it, but wouldn’t have it any other way.

She is many things: a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who live in her head, who don’t let her sleep at night unless she gives them life with words.

She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things… but likes it even more when they fall in love.

She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.

She’s been writing ever since…

I’m so glad Nic went back to her boy band world!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Having thoroughly enjoyed Code Red I was very happily surprised to see that there would be a second book in the series as I’d not really picked up on any vibes from any of the other characters for a return.

Well, I’m very glad that Nic saw something in the relationship between singer and songwriter Jeremy and Head of Security Steve because Code Blue is a beautiful romance, filled with all the feels, some angst, a lot of plot tension and a wonderful ending.

On the way I will admit there were moments when I was shaking my head thinking not sure that’s actually possible even with the best hacking skills in the world, (plot point not relationship) but I just let it go and it works within the narrative.

I loved how this isn’t an easy journey for either of the two men, Jeremy’s never been attracted to a man before and he can’t understand his feelings, while Steve’s got lots of hidden traumas from an incident when he was younger.

But, together they just work and, as they navigate the attraction between them, the stalker plot plays out alongside their growing feelings and it totally worked for me.

While it’s only low/medium steamy, everything was still full of great emotional connectivity and a lot of vulnerability from both men and it definitely had me going awwww a lot!

I’m not going to go into too much detail but I really loved seeing how this played out and I think it had an ending which fit well.

Snowed-jpg

Blurb

A second chance at love is all Kyle wants for Christmas, but a dark menace from his past wants him dead, and love is second to staying alive.

Kyle Lourenco has carved out a comfortable life and career for himself in Boston. With the holidays quickly approaching, he’s heading home for the first time in several years. Home to his loving parents and the small Canadian town where he was raised. And home to Christian, his best friend and the first man to steal his heart.

Just as a winter storm begins to blow in, it forces Kyle off the road only miles from home and a dark and sinister force from his past creeps ever closer. His only hope is getting to Christian’s cabin before the evil that has haunted him for years finally catches up to him.

Best friends since they were three, Christian Gauthier grew up next door to Kyle, in a remote mountain town with one stoplight and a forty-mile round trip to the nearest school. When Kyle left town for a shot at a professional hockey career, he took Christian’s heart with him. Even though he knew Kyle was always destined for bigger things, it hadn’t stopped Christian from falling for him as soon as he knew what love was.

With Christmas coming soon and a major snowstorm heading their way, Christian shuts the doors to the family store and heads to his cabin, where he will be on standby as an official volunteer for Search and Rescue. He has never regretted staying in Eagle Ridge, but a near miss on a simple rescue leads him to reevaluate everything, and when Kyle ends up at his door, he knows that guarding his heart might not be the best solution after all.

Excerpt

I should use the radio and contact his parents—let them know where he was, and that he was okay—because they were probably concerned that he hadn’t turned up. I should report him being here to the search and rescue team. Maybe I should call the RCMP. Someone might be looking for him, a friend, a lover? There might be someone else in the car wreck I assume he’d walked away from. 

I couldn’t move as shock stole my rational thoughts, and I needed to know whether I had to go out there and rescue someone else. 

“Kyle, were you alone?” No response, and then his eyes opened a little and I got my first look at the inky depths of a man in pain. “Is there someone else out there in the snow?” I asked clearly.

“Huh?”

“Were you alone in the car?”

“Car?”

“Is anyone else in danger?”

“Alone,” he managed and closed his eyes again. That was one thing I guess—he’d been driving in a snowstorm on his own, which meant I didn’t need to suit up and get out there. He’d slipped back into sleep, but it was restless and jarring as he groaned in pain and mumbled something that I barely made out… Taqriaqsuit. A nightmare then because the ancient phantoms of his momma’s stories visited in his sleep, and I’d held him before when the night terrors consumed him. I’d held him and quieted his fears, and he’d left me, and he’d never come back.

“No… no… no…” 

The blankets moved a little as he jerked and then whimpered, but his eyes were still closed, and I knew he wasn’t in this world right now. Wherever he was, he was fighting the same age-old demons that plagued his childhood. There was only one thing that stopped them then, but it meant me climbing into bed with him and cradling him, reassuring him I could keep him safe. It meant me opening my heart to the only man I loved and promising him I’d be there forever. 

I refused to lie because forever was something we’d never have.
