Title: Shell Shocked (Yolks on You #1)
Author Name & Publisher: Jessica Payseur (JMS Books)
Publication Date & Length: March 27, 2016 — 199 pages

Synopsis

When Dominic agrees to join his boyfriend Alec and his kids for a weekend away at the annual Eggstravaganza in Mount Angus, Wisconsin, he’s expecting a boring, if kitschy, experience. He isn’t expecting to discover Alec is cheating on him, and he certainly isn’t expecting an exploding cow to drop him in the middle of a deadly mystery.

Suddenly single and surrounded by a town’s worth of suspects, Dom finds himself oddly drawn to playing the sleuth, especially if it will get him closer to Kiko, the owner of the niche shop Yolks on You.

Together the two men navigate a web of intrigue and lies, and the sniping of a jealous Alec, in a town filled with murder and Easter-themed mayhem. Will they manage to make it through the Eggstravaganza alive, or will the murderer leave them much more than just Shell Shocked?

FiveStars

This is an intriguing book with murder, mayhem, cheating boyfriend turned ex jealous boyfriend, to explosions, guns, and lots of Easter eggs. So in other words there is something for everyone in this book, including but not limited to finding that one person who makes you think of changing your whole life and taking a chance on love again.

His was really a great book. It holds you captivated from the moment the first explosion takes place. Every time you think the characters, Kiko and Dom, has figured out who it is that is setting the explosions off there is a new twist and turn that tells you …. Nope, you have the wrong person. Then when you get close to the end and you really think that you know who it is finally… You are thrown for another loop and BAM it is not that person either.

Not to mention along the way Kiko and Dom continually get closer to one another and you are left wondering will they work out or are they going to leave it at a vacation fling. Even that is a mystery up to the last moment when you think you finally figured that out also and hen they do what you did not see coming.

If you like a book with action, adventure, mystery, and love lost and love gained…. You will love this book. I know I did and I cannot wait to see what Jessica Payseur will do in the future with new books in the series. Definitely a book that captures your attention and holds it too the very end. It was a great read.

New Release: 5 Star Review for Fool For Love by Jessica Chase, Keelan Ellis, L.J. Hamlin, Asta Idonea, DC Lowry, Lila Mathews, Cassandra McMurphy, Charles Payseur, DM Roberto, Lynn Townsend, Monica Wang #MM #FF @TorquerePress

Fool for Love Square v2Title: Fool For Love
Author Name & Publisher: Jessica Chase, Keelan Ellis, L.J. Hamlin, Asta Idonea, DC Lowry, Lila Mathews, Cassandra McMurphy, Charles Payseur, DM Roberto, Lynn Townsend, Monica Wang (Torquere Press)
Publication Date & Length: April 20, 2016 – 59,800 Words

Synopsis

Not every love story starts out pretty, and Fool for Love has plenty of pranks, blunders, and misunderstandings to prove it. Whether it’s two college students assuming the worst or a visit from “The Trickster” himself, this collection of romantic near-misses and second chances shows that a rough beginning might very well lead to the happiest ending of all.

In Can’t Stand the Heat by Keelan Ellis a not-so-friendly prank on a would-be sous chef’s competition goes too far, and backfires in more ways than one. L.J. Hamlin’s Cherry Bomb introduces us to a world-weary Dom and a young fraternity brother who get off on the wrong foot, but learn that trying something new might be exactly what they need. In Coffee and Chaos by Jessica Chase, an ambitious detective believes that his new partner is a joke, but soon realizes that he may not be quite so perfect himself. In Lynn Townsend’s Had Me at Cheese Fries, an orderly and a nurse discover that, if they can survive April Fool’s Day in the emergency room, they can make it through anything, as long as they do it together. In Kangaroos Next 200km by Asta Idonea, a young man learns that taking a drunken dare in the outback might not have been a very wise thing to do, but being rescued by a sexy, older trucker on a tight schedule could be the best thing that’s ever happened to him. A secret admirer teaches a Valentine’s Day-hating baker that romance isn’t dead in Moonlight Masquerade by D.M. Roberto. In DC Lowry’s Rough Love, two college classmates discover that being perfect for one another may not be enough to keep them together unless they learn how to communicate before things fall apart. Fifteen years is a long time to make up for, but in Lila Matthew’s Rough Waters, two former best friends realize that forgiveness is sometimes the only way to a new beginning. In Tomatoes and Mangoes by Monica Wang, two geeky game-night enthusiasts discover that nothing says “I love you” like a never-ending stream of tricks and teases. An unexpected encounter turns a college student’s ideas about his own sexuality inside out in Cassandra McMurphy’s The Date. Nothing would delight Loki more than humiliating the god of thunder himself in Trickster69 by Charles Payseur—too bad his heart won’t get with the program.

Love is love—no matter if it happens by misdeed or mayhem—and these short stories cover it all. From uncertain flirtations to the most determined pursuits, everyone has the potential to be a Fool for Love in the end.

This book has a little bit of everything one might be looking for in an anthology. For those of you that are looking for more F/F then this is probably not one for you because it only has one short story that is F/F and the rest are M/M. But I am not complaining since that is the genre that I like.

There is a collection of short stories that are more based around romance and not primarily around sex. Which lets be honest sometimes we all need a little more romance.

This book contains a collection of short stories with long lost loves return, cops, college guys, ancient gods, pranks that have gone wrong but turned out right, secret admirers, chefs, and much much more.

The one thing I will say about this book is that it is all about love.

I truly enjoyed every story in this anthology and that is saying something since there is usually at least one that I am not fond of but I cannot say that about this book. Great job to all the authors in this collection.

Excerpt

From Monica Wang’s Tomatoes & Mangoes:

Having completed the uneven trade, Kei acquired Becca’s resources and soundly defeated everyone, especially Becca. Even as she was gloating, Kei stayed fixed to her exact place on the couch. She wondered if Becca noticed at all that their legs were still in contact, however minor. Or, on a negative note, what if Becca just didn’t move away because it might have seemed impolite?

“Good game,” Becca beamed at her. She didn’t seem to mind that Kei lied to her about the wheat, though she wasn’t a competitive player to begin with; for most of the games, only Cory and Kei fought to win.

“Thank you,” Kei said. With the distraction of the game gone, she was almost painfully aware of the gentle warmth emanating from Becca and flowing into her. Although the contact point between their thighs was limited, Kei could feel her body reacting in several other places where tension and heat were building into a wonderful sort of discomfort. She hadn’t felt like this since her early teens. She hadn’t felt like this about anyone ever.

When Cory came over and split them up by walking across the couch in heavy, wobbling steps to grab a game guide from the shelf on the other end, Kei could have beaten him with the hardcover tome. Never mind that he was the one who introduced them in the first place and continued to bring them together week after week.

Since Becca rarely sent her messages, Kei tried not to send her too many, either, not wanting to be a bother. One of her favourite text conversation with Becca was from the night there was a low-magnitude earthquake in their city.

Did you feel the earthquake just now?! Scary!

Nope, Kei wrote back. She had been eyeing the coffee table before her, wondering if she should pull out all the clutter under it so she could Duck and Cover in case of an aftershock. Now she cast earthquake safety aside and tapped out on her phone: Are you okay? Feeling like there’s an earthquake is a symptom of the flu that’s been going around.

usgdanandbilly1400

Title: University of Southern Georgia: Dan and Billy (University of Southern Georgia/USG #2)
Author Name & Publisher: Heath Greenfield (Torquere Press)
Publication Date & Length: March 2, 2016 – 37,100 Words

Synopsis

Some people know exactly who they are. As a matter of fact, some people can’t help being who they are even if it doesn’t fit into a conventional world. Other people struggle to figure out what that even means. Dan is the first. Billy is the second. Together, they are exactly what each one needs.

When a horrible roommate forces Dan—a theatre major and the apple of his family’s collective eye—to desperate measures, he turns to Billy to save him. What he doesn’t know is that Billy needs him just as much. Billy, the staunch, upright, gay Republican who has secrets of his own, is bowled over by the bright, forthright Dan, and finds himself inconveniently in love. Dan adores a man of conviction, and he’ll force himself to settle for friendship if he must…but as fate has it, things are about to change…

This book is amazing. I could not put it down.

The book is primarily about Dan and Billy but I guess you cannot leave out Ross either.

Dan is a flamboyant, out and proud gay man who is dramic in everything that he does. He is also a freshman at the Universityof Southern Georgia who is rooming with a “hater”.

Billy is the exact opposite of Dan. He is reservered, quiet, Republican Gay man with anxiety disorder. Billy is also a freshman at the same college but he does not have a roommate because of his disorder. And more importantly he has a boyfriend named Ross who is all too happy to have Billy roomateless.

Billy comes to Dans rescue with the roommate dilemma when things get to be to much for Dan in his current situation with the “hater”.

Now Ross…. What can I say about him other then he is the type of person who is out for him and him only. He uses sex to manipulate Billy and Billy just does not see it coming.

This book was just such a great love story. It was a story about two people becoming best friends first and helping each other in their times of need to growing into what they are meant to be to each other. Heath greenfield did an amazing job at making me want to reach in the book and strangle a certain someone in this book. He also made want to pop two someone’s upside their heads and say open your eyes to what is in front of you.

Amazing story and definitely will be recommending this book and reading the first book since I have not read it yet. Also kind of hoping that a character that was mentioned in this book (Kyle) will be getting his own book too. You will see why when you read this book.

Tosha

FourStars

This was a very sweet story of coming of age, learning to love yourself, accept yourself and letter love in.
Dan and Billy make for an odd couple.  Dan is wanting to have the most of his college experience and with a roommate who hates gay people, he’s suffering more than he needs.  When he goes to try to fix his roommate situation, Billy is the one who comes to his rescue.
Despite Billy’s somewhat OCD personality, he finds himself being more and more calm about things with Dan as his roommate.
Then you have Ross… Oh Ross… what a jackass you are.  Selfish, self-entitled, insecure and a stodgy know-it-all.
The relationship that develops between Dan and Billy is sweet, innocent and so realistic.  They are friends first, but once both are able to truly develop real feelings, their relationship takes a slower pace.  It seems that they rushed through the friendship, but once they were able to truly feel, both were so scared.
I loved Dan’s family and Billy’s family – they helped to develop the story in a realistic manner.
This book ends with the reader getting exactly what they hoped for – a love story with a HEA.

Excerpt

“Billy! Billy, boy!” It was that crazy freshman from one floor down. “Darlin’ Billy! I need your help.”

The guy threw himself at Billy, and if Billy hadn’t reached out and grabbed him, the kid would have hit the floor hard.

“Uh…what’s going on?”

The thought that the kid was cute, but a little overdone, flashed through Billy’s mind. Wait, Billy corrected, not my type.

“Yes, uh, Danny?”

“Dan. My name is Dan…not Danny.”

“Right, Dan. Uh, how can I help you?”

“I knew if I came to you and threw myself on your tender mercies you could not deny my plight.”

“What plight?”

Dan straightened up and plopped himself on the bed across from Billy’s.

“Billy, I need you to provide me safe shelter in these troubled times.”

“Safe shelter? You want to, uh, stay here? With me?” he was confused. “Why?”

“Because, dear Billy, I have found myself with the most dreadful creature on our good God’s green earth.”

“What’s that?”

“A hater.”

ThreeandHalfStars

This is quick and fun story of Aaron and his photo adventures with the aforementioned Butcher, Baker and Candlestick Maker. The premise is quite cute and serves the story well. While you get to the thick of it pretty quickly and it doesn’t pull any punches in the steamy department. You get amusing interludes with each regarding their specialties and the story is rather inventive in this department.

This is a good lunch time or waiting room read as the story isn’t very long. If you enjoy the insta-like/love story lines you will enjoy this. I liked this book because it doesn’t try to be ultra involved but you like the characters and you can giggle at the antics of each of the craftsman. Makes you think twice about what exactly goes on behind the counter at your favorite shops!

Excerpt

I’d always enjoyed photography. Even as a kid, I’d borrow my dad’s Polaroid and take off to shoot the neighborhood. Now in art school, nothing had changed much. If anything, the passion burned brighter. And so it wasn’t by chance that I enrolled in the photography class that semester, but perhaps fate did play a role in what eventually transpired.

My homework assignment that particular day was called, very simply, “trios.” We could use our fertile imaginations to interpret this any way we wanted to. Me, I wanted to go all out—balls to the wall, as it were. In other words, I wanted an A. And so over the weekend, I biked around town, looking for anything that stood out, anything iconic but unusual just the same.

A pizza parlor, perhaps? Mushroom, pepperoni, and anchovy? Too easy, I figured. Street lights, maybe? Red lights, green lights, yellow lights? Too, uh, pedestrian. How about kids, parents, and grandparents, I thought? Well, they said never to work with children or animals. I couldn’t have agreed more. In other words, nix on that idea, as well. Besides, approaching children and asking to take their picture was never a wise idea.

No, I had to dig deeper, find something unexpected but fun to photograph, something no one else in my class was going to come up with. And so I ended up at Old Times, a local mall dedicated to days gone by. Which, to be quite frank, was generally just another way for the stores to charge extra for crap no one needed. Still, I reasoned, my inevitable photographs would be out of the ordinary.

I looked around, my high-end digital camera at the ready. Luckily, I spotted my prey right off the bat, their storefronts side by side by side. The butcher was on the left, the candlestick maker on the right, the baker in the middle.

Iconic—check. Trio—check. It seemed like I was good to go.

“Whoa,” I whispered as I entered the butcher shop, mainly because the butcher was one mighty fine slab of meat. Grade A prime, in fact—and with one hell of a rump roast to boot. He was dressed in 1930s garb, the uniform tight and white, hugging him in all the right places¬. Then again, by the looks of him, he had no wrong ones to begin with. He had on a fancy straw hat, a white bow tie, a white apron, and heavy black shoes. The sleeves of his white button-down were rolled up to reveal meaty forearms covered in a thick blond down.

In truth, we couldn’t have looked more different. He had three inches and a good thirty pounds on me. He was blond to my brunette, blue eyes to my brown. Plus, he was easily seven or eight years older. Still, in my randy imagination, we made a picture-perfect couple. And since I took perfect pictures, I knew of what I spoke. Cart before horse? Fine, so sue me.

Anyway, he smiled when I approached, his teeth as white as his clothes, gleaming and perfect, eyes a dazzling blue. And when he spoke, “Welcome,” it was with a beautiful, trilling Eastern European accent of some kind. Polish, maybe? Slovakian? Fuck if I cared; it was sexy either way. “Can I help you?” he asked, the smile so bright I very nearly put my sunglasses on.

Hell yeah, I thought, but told him instead the reason for my visit: that I wished to film him for my class. He smiled when I was done and said I could take some pictures when the shop closed at six. Then we wouldn’t be interrupted. I gulped when he said it, mainly because those stunning orbs of blue were locked in on me like a meat hook to a side of beef. I thanked him and told him I’d be back at six.

All the above I repeated at shop number two—the same spiel, the inner monologue only slightly different.

The baker was thin and dreamy, with a white chef’s hat and a white button-down shirt, which was opened at the collar to reveal just the slightest hint of ginger chest hair. Over this, he wore a pristine white apron. His eyes sparkled like green emeralds as he nodded my way, his crisp white uniform showing off his physique as he dexterously stocked the shelves with a beautiful array of fresh pastries and cookies. When he spoke, it was with a lilting Irish brogue that made my cock throb in my jeans. In the end, he invited me back first thing in the morning, before he started baking.

All the above I then repeated at shop number three. By then I had my story down pat.

The candlestick maker’s outfit was the most unusual of the three. He wore not a stitch of white. His shirt was a blousy blue, his vest a clover green, his slacks a muddy brown, and his shoes, heels and all, were a midnight black. His smock, which was covered in wax, was also black, to perfectly match his beret. He wasn’t stocky like the butcher nor thin like the baker, but dreamily average in both height and weight. He had brown hair and brown eyes, and spoke—be still my heart, and hard-on—in a posh British accent. I was thankful that he immediately locked up shop, agreeing to pose for me once he finished his work in the back, leaving me in the front to ponder my good fortune.

This is my first book by Ari McKay, but I’m sure it won’t be my last.

A Taste of Honey is a fun, feel-good, sexy read. It grabbed me from the start, and I couldn’t put it down. I changed my plans for the day so I could finish it!

Boone and Rob/Honey are great characters, and I’d love to read more of their story. But there’s one reason why I didn’t give this five stars. I felt there was a step missing in their journey from friends to lovers. It made me feel like things started to feel a little bit forced near the end.

I still enjoyed this very much and recommend it to anyone looking for a light, romantic read.

Amanda

Excerpt

He escorted Honey into the club, which was only about half full. That would change as the night wore on and the dancing got started, but for now they were led to a booth near the stage at the edge of one of the dance floors. Boone seated Honey, then slid in beside her as the hostess handed them menus.

Unlike Rob, Honey didn’t maintain a friendly distance. Instead, she scooted close, aligning her thigh against his, and looked at his menu instead of her own. “How hungry are you?” she asked, gazing at him with an all too innocent look in her wide blue eyes. Up close, Boone could see the artfully applied cat eyeliner enhanced by mascara on her natural lashes rather than the large fake lashes she wore when she performed. “We could start with nachos or maybe the stuffed jalapeno peppers and margaritas, of course.”

“I could definitely use a margarita,” Boone said. He couldn’t drink too much, since he was driving, but he felt the need for a little liquid fortification to get through this date with his sanity intact. He kept having to drag his gaze away from Honey, because he was far too fascinated with examining every detail. “The stuffed jalapenos are good, if you want to start with those.”

“Sure, we can share them. I like a little hot spice, don’t you?” she asked, all innocence, but Boone wasn’t fooled.

Boone stared at Honey, weighing his options. He could go through the evening feeling like he was out of his depth, or he could get himself under control and dish out some payback. He knew why Rob was doing this, after all; he wanted to prove that Boone’s plan wouldn’t work because Boone wouldn’t be able to act naturally with Honey. Even though Boone had already decided that he wasn’t going to go through with the plan anyway, his natural competitive streak had been roused, and he wanted to show Honey—and Rob—that he could give as well as he got. It was a game, after all, and Boone wrote games for a living, so he had to try to see if he could win.

“Definitely. Why do you think I asked you out, Ms. Honey?” he drawled with all the southern charm he had.

“Well, I’d like to think it’s because you have exquisite taste and finally noticed the perfection that’s been under your nose all along.” Honey leaned back and gave him a pointed look. “But we both know this level of hotness is too much for you.”

“This is a level of hotness I never even knew existed.” Boone tilted his head to one side, giving her a wink. “But I think I could get to like it.”

“That’s pretty big talk for a straight boy.” Honey nestled closer and leaned her head on his broad shoulder, and he caught a whiff of sandalwood. “I’m not sure you can walk the walk,” she added, stroking his chest with one perfectly manicured hand.

It’s just a game Honey—Rob—is playing with me, Boone told himself firmly. There was no reason to think of it as being anything more. Rob wasn’t really coming on to him, after all, and it wasn’t as if he had never touched his best friend.

“Oh, you might be surprised,” Boone replied. He slid his arm around Honey’s shoulders and leaned closer, breathing deeply. “I like your perfume. Sandalwood is one of my favorite scents. I think the only thing that’s better is cinnamon.”

He felt rather than heard her draw in a startled breath, but then she relaxed against him. “Does that mean if I wore a cinnamon scented perfume, you’d want to eat me up?”

Boone smiled to himself. One point for me. “Now that is an intriguing idea,” he replied. He’d never been big into flirtation before, but he was starting to think he could learn a thing or two from Honey. “Cinnamon scented Honey. Sounds like you could bottle that and make a fortune.”

New Release: 6 Days to Get Lucky (A Nick Valentine Story #2) by LE Franks (AUTHOR INTERVIEW) #MM #Humor @boxtersushi

12597096_10208671112325666_1761266609_o

Title: 6 Days to Get Lucky (A Nick Valentine Story #2)
Author Name & Publisher: LE Franks (Wilde City Press)
Publication Date & Length: March 2, 2016 – 72,000 Words

Synopsis

Mixologist Nick Valentine never thought love was in the cards, but after a scorching Valentine’s Day kiss from bouncer Davis “FatBoy” Newman, he’s beginning to think it’s possible. After four weeks of dry spell, Nick’s losing patience—it’s time FatBoy stop acting the gentleman and just throw him over the bar or Nick may just change his mind.

All FatBoy wants is a shot at winning Nick’s heart. As long as meddling bosses, an Irish hurling team and a bar riot don’t ruin his chances forever, he might just get lucky and take the man of his dreams, home.

Excerpt

Reaching across the empty bed next to me, I rode out the last waves of my dream alone. I could still feel his phantom kiss on my lips and the sensation of a hand stroking along my thigh.

The rest of it was just a blur of emotions and sticky residue on my sheets—though I could guess at it without much effort. FatBoy Newman had been a specter haunting me at work so it was no great leap to assume he’d shouldered his way into my dreams as well.

In fact, he was at the root of my problem: I’d been having a hell of a dry spell.

Four weeks of near misses had done nothing but stoke my bad mood and turn my balls a lovely shade of indigo that matched my jeans…

Four weeks of dashed hopes…

Four weeks since the most romantic kiss of my life…

Four weeks of nothing.

Fuck the South and its mythology of the Southern Gentleman—if FatBoy Newman didn’t stop treating me like a delicate flower and throw me up against a wall soon, I was going to explode.

It was six days until St. Patrick’s Day, and FatBoy had until then to make his move, or I was moving

on.

Taylor Maid is a very cute story, marrying the maid to inherit money.  But boy did Taylor get a surprise! The characters in this book were perfectly described for this story.  Loved the connection that Taylor and Ally had almost immediately upon meeting.

This book was fun and had me chuckling at points.  The story wasn’t rushed at all nor dragged out, it was just enough to give you a cute read. Both their dad’s are a problem throughout the book but Taylor and Ally get their happily ever after regardless of their dad’s.

Definitely a very good read.  You won’t be disappointed in this book at all, I highly recommend it if your looking for a quick light read.

Sherry

FourandHalfStars

This was actually my first book by this author and I completely loved it. This is another book in Dreamspinners new series called “Dreamspun Desires.” I already read a couple and have loved every one of them. This author was able to take this book and weave it into a story that was completely different. Don’t get me wrong I’ve read books with the general theme of this one (man being forced to marry to gain an inheritance) but this author was able to come up with a new turn to this one. That was great because I really hate reading the same story but just by a different author.

I immediately fell in love with Taylor and Ally and the denial between the two was typical but amazing in the way it came across. There was humor and eventually love between the two men. This book had everything you needed to just keep turning the pages until you finished it. This is a definite recommendation to all who love MM romance.
