Heat can be sold but love is earned.

In a world where omegas sell their heats for profit, Adrien is a university student in need of funding. With no family to fall back on, he reluctantly allows the university’s matcher to offer his virgin heat for auction online. Anxious, but aware this is the reality of life for all omegas, Adrien hopes whoever wins his heat will be kind.

Heath—a wealthy, older alpha—is rocked by the young man’s resemblance to his dead lover, Nathan. When Heath discovers Adrien is Nathan’s lost son from his first heat years before they met, he becomes obsessed with the idea of reclaiming a piece of Nathan.

Heath buys Adrien’s heat with only one motivation: to impregnate Adrien, claim the child, and move on. But their undeniable passion shocks him. Adrien doesn’t know what to make of the handsome, mysterious stranger he’s pledged his body to, but he’s soon swept away in the heat of the moment and surrenders to Heath entirely.

Once Adrien is pregnant, Heath secrets him away to his immense and secluded home. As the birth draws near, Heath grows to love Adrien for the man he is, not just for his connection to Nathan. Unaware of Heath’s past with his omega parent and coming to depend on him heart and soul, Adrien begins to fall as well.

But as their love blossoms, Nathan’s shadow looms. Can Heath keep his new love and the child they’ve made together once Adrien discovers his secrets?

Heat for Sale is a stand-alone m/m erotic romance by Leta Blake, writing as Blake Moreno.

Infused with a du Maurier Rebecca-style secret, it features a well-realized omegaverse, an age-gap, dominance and submission, heats, knotting, and scorching hot scenes.

Lots of hijinks and humour in this fun paranormal

SingleWhiteIncubus_1575x2400HR.jpgSingle White Incubus by E.J. Russell

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

What a lot of fun this book is. I’ve not read any of the connected series but I’ll be rectifying that pretty quickly.

I loved this world and this pairing and the humour and sweetness. I liked the opposites attract element of the narrative and the idea of a supernatural dating agency.

There also seems to be more going on in the background than first appears too and I want to know more about the other halves of this mixed up marriage.

I’ve already pre-ordered the complete collection with Riptide because next up is vampire Casimir and beaver non-shifter Rusty and that sounds like a it’s going to be a riot!

I loved how bear shifter Ted and Quentin sparked off each other from the beginning and the surrounding world and characters were also fully developed to provide a perfect backdrop.

This is low steam and low angst and perfect bedtime reading 🙂

Smashing best friend’s brother romance from Baylin Crow

FlingBaylinCrow (1)Fling by Baylin Crow

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was just smashing. I do enjoy a good best friend’s brother romance and, while this is a young adult one, it never felt like it.

Now, that’s not to say the characters read older either, they didn’t, and for the vast majority of this book, both Dean and Hayden were acting as I’d expect an 18-year-old and a 22-year-old.

Apart from the big conflict, which I must admit, didn’t quite work for me only because I don’t think enough build-up had been given to why Dean reacted as he did.

Instead, it felt like an overreaction to something which hadn’t, imho, been justified by the narrative at that point.

That is my only minor criticism though, the rest of the book is a delightful romance between someone who never expected to fall in love and the guy who had always been in love.

Not my kink but a very good look at the Daddy/little world

My Kind of ManMy Kind of Man by A.G. Silver

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5*

This isn’t my kink, but this book is an exceptionally good exploration of the whole ABDL Daddy/little world.

It never strays in to uncomfortable territory and the relationship between Callum and Mikey is built on mutual respect and understanding of the other’s needs.

Chemistry between the pair is very well done, the connection both sexual and emotional is easily seen through the writing. I firmly believed in them as a couple.

There’s a bit of drama which did feel a little bit plot for plot’s sake to cause tension and Mikey has a bit of a crisis of confidence in himself and his capability to be the little Callum needs at the 75% mark.

Overall though, I’d definitely recommend this to anyone looking to expand their kink horizons and I hope we get the stories of the rest of the group too.

Simply beautiful romance from Kelly Jensen

Building foreverBuilding Forever by Kelly Jensen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is two out of two for Kelly Jensen – both completely different genre types as well, a Sci-Fi To See The Sun and now this contemporary.

I knew I was going to like this one when I was laughing out loud during the first chapter, tearing up at 37%, and when Kelly used one of my most favourite words ever – susurrate during a sex scene 🙂

This book is, pretty much, a feel-good read with only a teeny bit of angsty, lots and lots of love, fun and laughter, humour, and great characters and world-building, and it’s really visual! I could picture perfectly in my mind the setting.

The two protagonists are the kind of blokes I want to be friends with. I loved Simon and I adored Charlie. Their relationship was just lovely to read. The trope of neighbours falling in love is one you don’t see so much these days and it’s done with full justice here.

Simon’s looking for a new start, Charlie’s just living day by day, mostly happy but living with buried feelings of guilt and still mourning the loss of his wife.

There is a scene, which I mentioned in my Updates, which had me tearing up completely and it just summed up the whole book for me really – Simon was the perfect guy to pick up the baton so people could move on.

“I’m aware most of Bethlehem believes my associates are ghosts,” Arthur continued. “There was only one, though. Jeremy Klein. He was my partner in all things until he passed.” He wore the expression of a man reminiscing over deep loss and old grief. “It’s difficult to move forward from that. Especially in a small community. So I honored his memory—each facet of it—by making Jeremy into a host of associates. My partner, my friend.” A quiet breath. “My lover.”
Gaping wasn’t polite, but how else to react?
“I hope I have not misjudged you,” Arthur went on. “That my . . . personal history isn’t something you—”
“No. You haven’t. I appreciate the confidence.”
“It’s considered rude to imagine one knows another without question, and this world is so obsessed with labels. But I recognized you when you first came to visit me, Simon. That’s not why I was eager for the partnership, you understand. But I felt nonetheless that we could make beautiful things together. That in you, I had found someone to pass my associates on to.”

Ryker is hockey royalty, Jacob is a poor country boy. Can two vastly different people find common ground and become the men they want to be?

Ryker comes from a long line of championship-winning hockey players. Playing college hockey to develop his game is his only focus, and nothing will stand in the way of him working to become the best player.

He has no room for relationships, people that point out his flaws, or anyone who calls him on his dreams. He certainly has no place for love, and meeting Jacob is nothing but a useful distraction on the side. After all trying to get his Owatonna Eagles teammate into bed is less work and more play. When tragedy rocks his family, his charmed life crumbles, and the only person he can turn to is the same one who claims to hate him.
Jacob Benson has only known hard work and stifling conservative values his whole life. Born and raised in the small rural community of Eden Crossing, Minnesota, he’s the only son of a hard-working but struggling dairy farming family. Jacob is using his skills in hockey to finance his way to an agricultural science degree.

These four years at Owatonna U. will probably be the only time he has to enjoy life, gain acceptance about his sexuality, and live openly before his inevitable return to the farm. Running into a pretty rich boy like Ryker Madsen is putting a damper on his enjoyment of life away from home.

Ryker’s flip, conceited, carefree attitude grates on Jacob’s every nerve. So why, if Ryker is everything he dislikes, does he want nothing more than to explore the sinful dreams that his annoying teammate stars in every night?

Ed Davies’ romances just make me happy

Electric Sunshine (Brooklyn Boys, #1)Electric Sunshine by E. Davies

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ed Davies’ style of writing just makes me happy. His books are usually low in angst, drama free and just a generally all round lovely relationship with a wee bit of spice to stop them being overly sweet.

This one, the first full-length story in his new series, a spin-off from the Significant Brothers, was a delight. Ed handles the potential dramatics from having a sex worker as one of the MCs with consummate ease.

Kevin never feels like his job is there for effect only, his escorting is his way of life and, while it might not be an ideal situation, it’s one he’s chosen to manage the best he can.

I loved the meet-cute in this book, I loved Darren’s character and I’m glad to hear he will be in book two, along with Adam, our other ranch hand escapee.

Charlie was such a sweetie too, principled and straight as an arrow in character, but utterly lost at how to move on five years after his boyfriend’s death. And a big shout out to his dead boyfriend’s parents, who were awesome!

All in all, this really is a feel-good romance with some great emotional connections and, in spite of the short time frame everything takes place within, it never felt like insta love to me.
