CoverTitle: Gambling Men
Author Name & Publisher: Amy Lane (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: May 7, 2012 – 220 pgs

Synopsis

Quent Jackson has followed Jason Spade’s every move in business and in poker since their first day as college freshmen. Eight years later, when Jace finally decides Quent is the one man he can’t live without, he sees no reason for that to change.

But as much as Jace believes that poker is life, no one gave Quent the same playbook. After their first passionate night, the real game of love and trust begins, and Jace has been playing alone too long to make teaching the rules easy. Jace only speaks two languages: one of them is sex, and the other one is poker. Between the two, he needs to find a way to convince himself to take a chance on love—and Quent to take a chance on him. It’s a lucky thing they’re good at reading the odds, because they’re playing for keeps, and this is one high-stakes relationship that’s definitely worth the gamble.

I have to say that I have never read a book that had so many puns in it as this one does but that is what really makes this book so special.

Jace and Quentin have known each other since college. From the moment they met and became roommates they have been inseparable. They. Are best friends but even as best friends they do not know everything about each other.

Being best friends like they are they pretty much do everything together. They go to the gym together, they play poker together, they went into business together and now Jace wants to take it a step further and throw all his cards on the table…..he wants Quentin to be his also.

It is not always easy between the two of them because Quentin has to deal with being in a relationship with a man for he first time and Jace has to deal with his insecurities of ending up alone or losing Quentin but they deal with their issues tougher and keep coming out stronger because of it.

This book was such an enjoyable read. There was some serious parts in it but for the most part these two men was just fun to read about, puns and all. Amy Lane has a real winner on her hands win this book. Such a great, fun read.

I am so conflicted about this book.  On one hand, this is Amy Lane with another one of her perfectly matched pairs, a story full of kismet, that gooey feel-good factor and some pretty hot sex.  It’s a slow build friends to lovers story, a natural feeling gay-for-you and it ticks so many right boxes.  On the other hand, I’ve learned that as much as I’m not a poker fan, I’m really, really not a fan of men who talk in poker metaphors or narration full of poker references and vocabulary.  Sex described through poker metaphors just invites flashbacks from very, very bad dating decisions.  

So.  I’m going to leave this review brief and let other readers decide.  I can’t resist an Amy Lane love story but I should have read the blurb closer before requesting this book.  Neither of these men does much for me and I would have known as much if I hadn’t been distracted by the immediate visceral reaction I have when I spot a new book with Amy Lane’s name on the front.

Poker fans and those who can look a man in the eye when he attempts sports metaphors in bed will enjoy this.  I’m sure everyone else has another favourite Amy Lane story they can re-read instead.

Helping Hand_FINAL

Title: Helping Hand
Author Name : Jay Northcote
Publication Date & Length: June 26, 2015 – 33, 000 Words

Synopsis

Wanking with a mate isn’t gay—as long as you keep your hands to yourself.

Jez Fielding and James MacKenzie—Big Mac to his mates—are in their second year at uni. After partying too hard last year, they make a pact to rein themselves in. While their housemates are out drinking every weekend, Jez and Mac stay in to save cash and focus on their studies.

When Jez suggests watching some porn together, he isn’t expecting Mac to agree to it. One thing leads to another, and soon their arrangement becomes hands-on rather than hands-off. But falling for your straight friend can only end badly, unless there’s a chance he might feel the same.

Another hit by Jay Northcote! I absolutely loved this story from start to finish. Two men who didn’t realize they were attracted to other men, but figure it out together was a nice plot. I loved the way they handled the ups and downs and awkward moments. While this rang a bit like ‘gay for you’ it didn’t at the same time. I really loved the way it all worked together.
It was a great read that was sweet and sexy all at the same time. I loved the secondary characters as they only added to the story and make it just that much better.
The narrator did a good job with the story, except I specifically remember in one sexy scene he started reading it too fast as if it was a bomb going to go off instead of a hot and heavy scene.
Renee

Excerpt

Afterwards, Jez blamed the alcohol for loosening his tongue, because he didn’t think about it before he spoke. The words tumbled out before he could stop them.

“Man, I’m seriously horny now. Have you got any decent porn on that laptop?”

“Huh?” Mac snapped his head around to meet Jez’s gaze. Jez’s heart pounded erratically, but his dick was still standing to attention. “What… you mean, you want to wank in here? Now? Wouldn’t that be weird?” Mac sounded seriously freaked out.

Jez backtracked quickly, cheeks hot. “It doesn’t have to be weird. I’ve done it before with guys at school, and it’s never been a big deal. But don’t worry about it. I’ll go and watch my own stash instead. But I need something soon, ’cause I’m gonna explode after watching that sex scene.”

Jez was expecting an instant no from Mac. He wouldn’t have blamed him. A lot of guys wouldn’t be into what Jez was suggesting. Jez’s heart still thumped hard, but his arousal didn’t abate despite his anxiety. He was shocked by how much he wanted this.

Mac bit his lip and frowned. “Seriously. You’ve done that?”

Jez shrugged, trying to look nonchalant. “Yeah. Like I said, it was no big deal. Just guys messing around.”

Mac stared a moment longer, then he stood, and Jez’s heart sank as he walked away. But Mac only went to fetch his laptop from the dining table. He sat back down and then opened it and tapped in his password.

“What sort of stuff do you wanna watch?” Mac’s voice was gruff and he focused on the screen rather than Jez.

Fuck. They were really going to do this, then.

Synopsis

A reporter and the thief he’s investigating both fall for a golden dancer forging a ménage of love and lies that could send one to prison and one to the morgue.

The story promises the recognition Mac craves. But then Mac meets a real golden dancer, ballet star Trelain Medveyev, and his attraction to the man rocks his formerly straight world.

When the mysterious Terrebone “collects” this beautiful dancer, too, Mac rushes to the rescue like a knight in shining cargo pants and plunges into a three-way passion that tears him between love and guilt. Can Mac keep investigating when his story could send one man to prison and another to the morgue? Will this reporter get his story or get his men?

Review

 FiveStarsI am just going to be completely honest here and say that at first for maybe the first chapter or two I did not think I was going to truly like this book. But I pushed ahead and by the time I got to the third chapter I was hooked and completely engrossed in this book.

This is a book that revolves around a man that thinks he is straight and is a reporter (Mac), a man who is out in the open gay and proud of it and a premier ballet dancer (Trelain), and a man that is a billionaire and possibly a thief (Daniel). These are three completely different men and somehow or another they just complete one another. They are all three the most unlikely pair but once they are all together it is as if the pieces to the puzzle finally click into place to make it a complete puzzle.

But among these the men there is also a huge mystery that Mac is trying to unravel but at the same time trying to decide if unraveling this mystery is worth maybe possibly losing the two men he has fallen in love with. Daniel is also in the dead center of this mystery because if Mac’s theory is correct then one of the men he has fallen for is a theif. Then their is Trelain, well he is just an innocent bystander all the way around and has no clue what either of the two men he is in love with is up.

This book was beautifully written. Tara Lain made this trio into such a beautiful love story. I am so glad that I kept reading it because this was an amazing story and I would have completely missed out if I had not finished reading it and gave up after the first couple of chapters. And to elaborate, the first couple of chapters was not bad it was basically background layout to what was to come. I just could not see the full picture at the time.

TWO 5 Star and TWO 4.5 Star Reviews for Save of the Game (Scoring Chances #2) by Avon Gale #MM #Romance @avongalewrites

Another winner all around…the hockey, the players, the team, the romance, the sex, the couples, the secondary characters (new, past & current), pizza & coconut water, and of course, Riley and Ethan. This is a long list, but that is because the whole story is a winner.
These two are a perfect pair on and off the ice. On the ice, Ethan is the team enforcer and protector, and everyone knows you do NOT mess with another team’s goalie, especially Riley, his goalie. Off the ice, these two are opposites. Riley drinks coconut water, Ethan drinks Pepsi. Riley comes from a loveless, cold family where Ethan comes from the best family anyone could want or have. Ethan is a tattooed muscle fighter and Riley is quite bendy (which leads Ethan’s imagination wild). They both though find are easy to love, enjoy kissing, eating pizza and play video games.
This was a low angst read that never made you want to set this down. Ethan’s family gets the Best Supporting Characters Award as his mom and sisters are just what everyone needs in their life. I cried happy tears seeing that they brought Riley in as member of one of their own, from hugs to cheer signs. Avon Gale writes with such enthusiasm for hockey, always an outstanding cast of characters, a journey of self discovery while developing a loving relationship and of course, very HOT smexy times. So I am greedy, I cannot pick one or the other as a favorite so I will just take both Ethan and Riley and the hockey!!
Keri

FiveStarsI love a book when two men that are supposedly straight realize that they are attracted to each other and that it is ok. U add in the fact the book is also about hockey and u have yourself a hit,

We met Riley in book 1 and and he had told Lane durning one of the conversations that he did not consider himself not gay but he did not consider himself straight either, it was more of a I don’t know what I am. Well in book 2 Riley finally figured that out when him and a fellow teammate Ethan started being roommates and Ethan figured out that not only did he not have a problem with gay people but he may also be gay too. Or at least gay for Riley.

I loved these two characters so much. They truly complimented one another even though they both come from completely different backgrounds.

Riley comes from a family that is extremely wealthy and his family are not close to one another at all.

Ethan comes from a family that is not rich with money but rich in other ways such as him being extremely close to his mom and sisters.

The other has always wanted what the other has. Ethan wants more money cause he wants to support his family and not rely on anyone else and Riley would give up all his money to have the kind of family that Ethan has.

This is such a wonderful read. It is about two guys who learn from the other. Riley is insecure about not having family and about others knowing he has money and thinking that the things he accomplishes is not on his merit but the money. Ethan does not want to ever be beholden to anyone else and take a chance of owing someone for it. They teach each other to let go of those insecurities and to grab on to what matters, each other.

Avon Gale does such an amazing job with her books and getting the points across. Avon has a gift to not only bring love to her characters but excitement to each book also. This book was such a great read and cannot wait to read book 3.

This book was another great book by an author that has just moved to my automatic buy list. The characters, Ethan and Riley, have such complexity and emotion. I also love that this book is based on my favorite sport, hockey. This was a light read about two bisexual men who come together via their love for hockey. Avon Gale is an excellent writer that always seems to inject life into the story. I loved Ethan’s family but immediately fell in love with Ethan, who we hardly got to know in book 1, Breakaway. I loved Riley in Breakaway and was so glad that he got his own story. This book was quite clearly about hockey and the friendship and love of two good men. I would definitely recommend this book even if you don’t love hockey.

4.5 Stars

I really enjoyed the fact that these were two men who were straight before they met each other, even if they had thought about other men in a way that could possibly make them not so straight. It was encouraging to see them both simply accept the attraction for what it was instead of fighting it tooth and nail.

The story that goes with the romance is awesome too. I love the way the hockey is interwoven into the story and adds to it instead of distracting from the two men’s relationship. The way they both are there to support each other in every way the other needs is great.

I just really enjoyed this story even if at time I felt like we were left a little behind with the time passage not always being so clear.

THREE 5 Star and 3.5 Star Reviews for Sunset Park (Five Boroughs #2) by Santino Hassell #MM #Romance @SantinoHassell @Dreamspinners

1.5

Title: Sunset Park (Five Boroughs #2)
Author Name & Publisher: Santino Hassell (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: December 11, 2015 – 230 pgs

Synopsis

Raymond Rodriguez’s days of shoving responsibility to the wayside are over. His older brother wants to live with his boyfriend so Raymond has to get his act together and find a place of his own. But when out-and-proud David Butler offers to be his roommate, Raymond agrees for reasons other than needing a place to crash.

David is Raymond’s opposite in almost every way—he’s Connecticut prim and proper while Raymond is a sarcastic longshoreman from Queens—but their friendship is solid. Their closeness surprises everyone as does their not-so-playful flirtation since Raymond has always kept his bicurious side a secret.

Once they’re under the same roof, flirting turns physical, and soon their easy camaraderie is in danger of being lost to frustrating sexual tension and the stark cultural differences that set them apart. Now Raymond not only has to commit to his new independence—he has to commit to his feelings for David or risk losing him for good.

Review

FiveStars

Sunset park is a book that made me laugh, made me mad, made me sad, and made me want to smack some sense in to the main characters.

Ray is 25 years old and in some ways he still acts like he is 16. He has a “I don’t give a flip about anyone thinks about me” but I believe nothing can be farther from the truth. My opinion of Ray is he is insecure about himself. He believes that everyone looks at him and sees that he has not accomplished as much as the next person so he is down on himself and believes that he can not compete with others in this aspect. He is Bicurious and he is fallen head o we heals for his new roommate David.

David is completely different from Ray. He grew up in a home where his parents accepted him for who he is rather then who he sleeps with. Ray is out and proud and doesn’t hide it from anyone.

I am not going to lie and say that there was not times through out this book that I did not want to wring David’s neck because for all the steps forward that Ray took I felt as if Ray was trying to have his cake and eat it too. The reason I say this is because David cannot cut lose his ex and it seems as if he stringing both Ray and his ex along. He won’t let Caleb go because he represents the perfect boyfriend on paper whereas Ray was hot, funny, carefree, and all around a good time.

I found myself rooting for Ray to come out ahead and prove his worth not only to himself but everyone else also because from what I gathered there was a lot more to Ray then what everyone could see. Beneath it all he was loving, caring, and smart. He would also do anything for David and I thought David was just to blind to see that.

This was a great book and now I am ready for book three so I can see what is going to happen in it.

Great job Santino on another Home run with this book

ThreeandHalfStars

David and Raymond… when you look up the definition of drama – their story appears.They have a sweet story, but there is so much drama that I found it hard to enjoy the actual story behind the drama.  You have ex-lovers who are still in their lives, miscommunications galore, hidden feelings, scared of commitment issues…

It’s all a lot to take in when the real story would have been so much nicer had there not been so much drama behind it.

The secondary characters just added to the drama, so they were not great for me either.  And, while you do get a HEA, it is a very long and winding road to arrive there.

Overall, this was just an OK story for me because there was so much other stuff going on.

AvidReader
FiveStars

Again, Santino Hassell has delivered a compelling story with flawed men that truly learn who they are with continued growth throughout the story. His writing easily flows between all the different emotional and physical elements that are wrapped in this story.

 

Raymond, how can you not love Raymond. He may seem to be quite brass, lazy, spoiled when you first meet him, but I have always known deep down there is heart and love. I love how he is so non-chalant about his bi-curious sexuality and that he just goes with the flow and does not panic. He is solid in himself, except for maybe his employment, but his heart is probably one of the biggest yet. I found him all around a loveable tattooed, broody, cursing, laid-back man and definitely one hell of a dirty talker.

 

David had his ups and downs in my head. I completely understood his fear of not wanting to hurt anyone, including his ex, yet trying to find his own happiness. He tried to be sly in offering himself as Raymond’s test subject. But that first kiss, my oh freaking my, David was done for by Raymond. And the Grindr scene, goes from funny to smoking hot and both are lost to each other.

 

These two are polar-opposites that at first glance, you may wonder how they met. But, their flirty banter, natural cuddles, touches and smirks were so sweet, you were rooting for them from the end of the Michael and Zio’s story.

 

Mr. Hassell again wrote with true grit and this raw yet emotional story will fill your heart.

~Keri

FiveStars

Heartwarming happy-ever-afters are great if you’re looking for a light and fun read. But Santino Hassell is the one to look to if you’re in the mood for something intelligent and gritty as well as romantic and hot as hell. This book is no exception.

The Five Boroughs series is made up of interconnected stand-alone books. But I feel you’ll get more out of them by reading them as a series. In this case, it’s great to know the supporting characters so well from Sutphin Boulevard. It adds extra richness to this story that I feel wouldn’t be there if it was just read as a stand-alone.

Raymond and David are wonderful, complex characters, flawed and relatable. This story addresses difficult contemporary issues very well through their personal growth. Their relationship is tumultuous and angsty, but also sweet and sexy. And Santino writes some of the best sex scenes I’ve ever read.

I highly recommend this book (and the series) to anyone interested in a down to earth contemporary romance that’s a bit rough around the edges.

ONE 5 Star and THREE 4 Star Reviews for Stay with Me (The PI Guys #1) by S.E. Harmon (AuDIOBOOK REVIEW) #MM #Romance

CoverTitle: Stay with me (The PI Guys #1)
Author Name & Publisher: S.E. Harmon (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: April 28, 2014 – 290 pgs

Synopsis

Private investigator Mackenzie Williams’s newest client is everything he’s looking for in a guy—charming, beautiful, intelligent, and successful. There’s only one itty bitty problem—the guy’s not exactly gay. In fact, Jordan Channing is looking for a PI to follow his fiancée. The smart thing would be to thank Jordan for his time, turn Mr. Perfect away (don’t let the door hit you on the rump, thank you very much), and forget he exists.

Of course, Mackenzie has never been accused of doing the smart thing. Being smart aleck is more his MO. Relationships aren’t up his alley, never have been. So why’s he so inexplicably drawn to his new client?

Jordan has always been the high achiever, a man who lives in a focused, controlled, and carefully constructed manner. But for the first time in his life, he has to admit the impossible—another man is getting his engine running on all cylinders. Despite Jordan’s denial, it’s not long before he can no longer resist the strong undercurrents pulling them together. Now Jordan must decide if he can go against everything he’s ever known to have the only love he’s ever wanted.

FiveStars

Such a great book. Stay with me by SE Harmon is about Mac and Jordan.

Jordan is a straight man who ends up hiring Mac who is a PI to investigate his fiancée and see if she is cheating. But from the get go Mac and Jordan’s attraction to one another is too strong to ignore.

The more time that the two men spend together the harder it is for them to deny that they have feelings for one another.

It was wonderful being able to picture it from the beginning when they was fighting their attraction to each other to being able to picture the two of them giving in and exploring the chemistry they have with each other.

Macs emotional problems was so realistic. He has a problem with not trusting anyone to stay for the long haul so he pushes people away when they get too close to him. His mom destroyed their family when he was young and he has carried that fear and pain with him through the years and applies it to his relationships. It was hard to see how that past pain unfolded and how he had to over come it.

I found myself being completely amazed with Jordan and how it was was easier then I figured it would be to embrace his new sexuality. He did it with grace and dignity and that made me love him that much more.

I found that this was not a hard book to fall in love with the characters. Mac is this out going man that makes jokes at every turn. I found myself laughing out loud at him several times throughout the book as if he was standing in front of me.

I definitely recommend that others read this book, it was truly heart felt and loved it greatly.

 If you’re looking to get a good dose of laughter and snark with your happily ever after, look no further that Stay With Me. Mackenzie is the sweet and sassy that you expect from the South. He has the most adorable chip on his shoulder from years of struggle with abandonment and sometimes self worth. His job as a PI has only cemented his belief that love only hurts and can’t be trusted. You will laugh out loud at some of the things that he thinks and then comes flying out of his mouth. Your inner snarky boy/girl will wallow along with him because who doesn’t sometimes feel justified at being angry for no good reason. Mackenzie meets his match with Jordan though when Jordan hires him to follow his fiance Rachel. Despite that fact that Jordan is engaged and straight there is an unique chemistry to Mackenzie and Jordan that draws you in.

             Mackenzie has done the unavailable guy thing before and still struggles with his past. Jordan doesn’t make it easy to root for him either. His whole life he has been straight so he has some struggles of his own. So along their journey you will definitely want to kick him a few times. They have more to overcome before it is all said and done. You will see each of their sweet sides and the rough edges of trying to find a way to meld two lives together. They stumble along quite a bit and sometimes it makes you want to knock their heads together but you won’t be disappointed when you have reached the end of this book. You will want these amazing men to make it and along the way you will laugh, yell and maybe a few tears will be shed. But it makes you want to pick up the next book just to see if they can make it  for the long haul and to see how Mackenzie’s PI partner deals with it when love comes knocking on his door.

**AUDIOBOOK REVIEW**
I thought the main character was hilarious with his snarky comments and attitude throughout the book.
However, there were times when I got a bit tired of Mack and I really hated Jordan for his wishy washy behavior. Not to mention the fact that Jordan hadn’t been with another man but sure jumped in feet first.. or maybe that’s head first and made it seem like he was such a pro.
However, overall I felt like it was a very well written book with unique and fun characters and plot line. The plot line was fun because we got to see some silly things that come along with being a PI, which I found down right hilarious.
The narrator did a good job with the book and I enjoyed listening to his voice. However, I can’t say there was anything that made it particularly stick out from any of the other narrators I’ve listened to.
Renee
FourStars

Mackenzie is hilarious! I can’t remember the last time I laughed this much. His never ending internal dialog is fantastic. However, it would have been nice if he had had a supportive confidant for him to talk to. Someone he could share all his internal angst with. Instead, he starts believing the worst is going to happen. He’s always waiting for the other shoe to drop. And instead of talking things through with the person he’s in a relationship with, he runs.

When Jordan came into the picture I was excited to hear his story. The description of the book made him sound so interesting. I was expecting some sort of internal angst of his own. But the reader never gets to hear it because the story is written in Mac’s POV only. Not hearing Jordan’s POV makes believing his story difficult. Is it possible for Jordan to suddenly want another man when he’s never been with one? Or even had feelings for another man? I don’t know.

Despite all this, the book is well written and I look forward to reading the sequel.

By the second page into this book I was crying. I wasn’t happy about that; I always avoid the ones that make me cry. But at least it was the beginning of the book and not the end. I finished this book within 3 days. Matt and Evan melted my heart. Their histories helped seal their relationship. I wanted this for them so bad. Evan seemed to struggle more with accepting his feelings about the relationship Than Matt did. He had valid concerns when it came to his children, although his children had already met Matt and enjoyed his company.

I was a little put off by all the drama in this book. I felt parts of the story could have been cut out because it was a bit long winded. Did we really need Vic’s story? Did we really need Helena’s story? Did we really need Jim’s story? I don’t think so. And I was a bit surprised the MC’s didn’t progress past oral sex and hand jobs. That being said, I’m still going to read the rest of the series because now I’m hooked.
