1.2

Title: Gage’s Gift (Kansas City Heat #5)
Author Name: Jenna Byrnes
Publication Date: March 27, 2015

Synopsis

A child is snatched from her home, the one place she should feel safe. Will the KCPD find her before something more sinister happens?

Detective DeMarcus Gage of the KCPD Missing Persons Unit knows that most child abductions are perpetrated by family members or persons known to the child. True ‘stranger’ abductions are rare—and taken very seriously by the police. When eight year old Leticia Braden disappears from her front yard the family is ruled out as suspects but actual leads are few.

Her traumatized parents need all the support they can get, and designate Leticia’s uncle Jack Braden to be their liaison with detectives. When he meets Jack, Gage struggles to keep his mind on the case. The two men share an immediate case of lust, which they fight to keep under control for more reasons than one. Jack’s not out of the closet, and Gage isn’t keen about sneaking around. A relationship beckons, but finding Leticia is their first priority. And as every cop knows, time is not on their side.

This was anothe good quick read in the Kansas City Heat series. Being book five I am glad that Jenna is keeping with the thyme of the last books and bringing in yet another mystery. This time around is a kidnapping of an 8 year old girl.

Gage is the one on the case to find this little girl and as everyone knows time is of the essence when it comes to an kidnapping.

Jack is the little girls uncle and the family liaison for the family with the police. There is a definite attraction between both men but finding the little girl is important and on top of Gage’s priority list. Even still the men end up together.

The only problem is that Jack is firmly in the closet and Gage is not having any kind of part of that.

I love to read a book where one is in the closest and the other is in the open because it bring anguish to the relationship and does not leave the book so predictable as too how the outcome of the fall out will occur.

THREE 5 Star Reviews for Death and Destruction (Death and Destruction #1) by Patricia Logan #MM #Romance

Title: Death and Destruction (Death and Destruction #1)
Author Name & Publisher: Patricia Logan (Westburg Publishing)
Publication Date & Length: May 26, 2016 – 333 Pages

Synopsis

Forced to go into witness protection, ATF Special Agent Thayne Wolfe, is less than thrilled. The State’s Attorney needs him to testify against one of the most ruthless and notorious arms dealers in the world. Expecting boredom and lots of daytime television, he instead ends up with a ridiculous new job, a stupid new name, and the world’s most annoying shadow. Jarrett Evans, is nevertheless tasked with keeping Wolfe alive long enough to put Mills Lang and his crew away for the rest of their miserable lives.

Jarrett Evans, former Marine, has always been a free spirit, doing the dirty work for Uncle Sam whenever and wherever he’s needed. One of the best snipers in the world, Evans is at peace with the man he’s become. That doesn’t mean he’s ever liked the cold-blooded killer who stares back at him from the mirror every day. The moment he meets pretty boy Thayne Wolfe, things start a slow change and redemption begins to sound possible.

Mills Lang, the world’s most ruthless arms dealer, is little more than a serial killer in his own right. Rotting away in prison with nothing but time on his hands, Lang is determined to destroy the man he allowed into his inner circle. Thayne Wolfe will die in the most painful way… along with anyone he loves.

I was so glad to find this was part of a series. I’ve read a few books from this author and enjoyed them but this book was clearly stellar. The writing was excellent and it was very easy to get into. The plot was great and the characters were fantastic. The romance between Thayne and Jarrett was not instantaneous but came about a through their chemistry. I love when an author can just draw you into the book and before you know it, it’s over. This book was like this. This book had everything: great characters, excitement, and sexy reading. I would recommend this to everyone and can’t wait for the next installment.

This book was phenomenal. It is full of action, romance, intrigue, and mystery. Patricia Logan really out did it on this book and I think that this book is just the prelude to what will come in book 2.

I really fell for both characters in this book. Jarrett and Thayne were both just amazing characters and they were both amazing together.

I do not think that we have heard the end from Mills Lang that is for sure and I do not know why but I do not think that Noah is dead and gone either. It is just a feeling but I think he will be making an appearance in a future book.

Patricia Logan put just the right amount of mystery and romance in this book to make you want to find out what is going to happen in the next book. This book kept me on the edge of my seat and I cannot wait to find out what is going to happen next and I love the fact that Thayne and Jarrett are going to partners at work and at home. That will make book 2 just that much more interesting.

Great job Patricia and cannot wait for the next book.

Tosha

FiveStars

Wow! This is Patricia Logan at her best – and her best is always special. This time she has mixed action, adventure and romance, introducing a new series with two brilliant leads and a fantastically evil supervillain. She adds in wonderful supporting characters and brilliant banter between our leading men.

And the leading men themselves – Jarrett and Thayne are slightly older, slightly damaged and entirely kick-ass heroes – or maybe antiheroes as much of Jarrett’s top secret life has been dark and not entirely moral. Thayne isn’t squeaky clean either, having done everything possible to survive undercover for the past two years. The chemistry between these two men is hot but the relationship is a satisfying slow burn and relatively angst free.

I loved the way this story spins away from the Bodyguards series and becomes something of its own. While I loved the first story in the Bodyguards series, I was falling out of love with the series and slightly skeptical about this book. I shouldn’t have been. This is wonderfully original, and while we revisit a couple of characters from Bodyguards, this book is the start of something exciting and new.

I absolutely loved this and I can’t recommend it highly enough. For anyone still mourning the end of Abigail Roux’s Sidewinder books or readers desperately hoping for an addition to Charlie Cochet’s THIRDS series, this new series is a must read.

5, 4.5 and TWO 4 Stars for Searching For Shelter (Sin City Uniforms #6) by Morticia Knight #MM #Romance

1.5

Title: Searching For Shelter (Sin City Uniforms #6)
Author Name & Publisher: Morticia Knight (Pride Publishing)
Publication Date & Length: January 19, 2016 – 168 pgs

Synopsis

Teen shelter volunteer Rich searches for love until Diego, from LVMPD Search and Rescue, finds him.>

After declaring his love life officially dead, Rich wonders if maybe he should stick with his shifter book boyfriends instead. It’s not as if he has much free time to date anyway. Between working long hours at a coffee shop, guarding his sodas from his hygienically challenged roommates, and running the programming at the Vegas LGBTQ teen shelter he founded—how could there ever be space for love in his life?

Diego Espinoza enjoys taking his downtime from working Search and Rescue, at the Lucky Cup coffee shop. He can set up his laptop, peruse good sport climbing spots and observe the blond barista he’s been pining over for a while. He imagines that the pretty boy has more offers than he knows what to do with, so it takes Diego time to work up the nerve to approach him.

Rich isn’t so sure about the rough looking Diego—even if he’s always thought he was hot—but once he decides to gives Diego a chance, there’s an immediate heat and connection that takes him by surprise. As they learn more about each other and try to find the way to a future together, strange and scary things start to happen.

It isn’t until Rich is injured in a bizarre accident that it becomes clear that there’s someone out there who not only doesn’t want Rich to find love—they want him dead.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of light bondage.

Rich works at a coffee shop to make ends meat while at the same time he volunteers at a LGBTQ teen shelter and has the worse luck dating which he has just decided to give up and stick with his book boyfriends when Diego asks him out on a date.
Diego comes to the coffee shop when Rich is working in the mornings and is very attracted to him. He works in Search and Rescue. He finally asks Rich out… Lets just say it was on and cracking after that!

I loved these two men together! Diego is so caring when it comes to Rich and protective of him. Rich feels the same way about Diego and then there was the steam between Diego and Rich which was so Damn hot!!!!!

I loved the way Morticia Knight wrote these characters and this story!

You get your action with this book too when someone goes after Rich. Once I started this book I could not put it down until the end and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time hoping for the best for these two men.

So all together I really loved this book!
I would 100% recommend this book!

FourandHalfStars

This was a great story.  I love Knight’s style and was not disappointed with this story either.  I have read several in this series and I love how they all play out.  They are all different, but with a great underlying theme: protect those you love.
In this story, you have Diego who has frequented Rich’s place of work for several weeks, if not months.  When Diego finally gets up the courage to ask Rich out – it could not have come at a better time for both of them.
While this book isn’t quite insta-love, it does develop in to a full blown relationship very quickly.  You have a great chemistry between the two main characters and the supporting characters are funny and help to move the story along while not being intrusive.
I am really hoping that my questions from this story will be answered, as even though the mystery was somewhat resolved, I still have lingering questions.
Again, this is a great series and I would recommend reading it.

This was such a sweet book. I just loved Rich and Diego. I am a sucker for insta-love and low angst books. I read for an escape not to get stressed out. These two had great chemistry and you couldn’t help but love them. Rich was such a sweet sole and would give you the shirt off his back; he made you wish that he was your friend in real life because you loved him so much. I did enjoy seeing some characters from previous books, great addition to the series and I can’t wait for the next installment.

This is another excellent book by Mortica Knight in the Sin City Uniforms series. Sometimes you just need to read a story with insta-love and oh so much HOT sex. That’s exactly what this book was. I love the connection I had with Rich. However, I immediately fell in love with Diego. God that man is just HOT and Sexy, even though he comes across almost too noble. But again I really read this for the HOT sex anyways and they did get a HEA.

Lynn

 ExcerptRich was dying to ask him something else, but he didn’t know if Diego would mind. He shouldn’t, it was a natural question. But it always seemed kind of an awkward one anyway. “So, how old are you then?”

Rich noted the way Diego’s mouth twitched. “I’m thirty-seven. You?” Diego had given him a quick sideways glance.

God, I wish I was even a little bit older. He might think I’m too young for him. He has to have an idea, though, right?

He must’ve paused too long.

“You are legal aren’t you?”

Rich gasped before he saw the quirk at the edge of Diego’s lips. “Oh my God. I don’t look that young!”

“I was sorta considering whether I should check your ID.”

“Ha ha. Very funny.” Rich couldn’t hold back his laughter and Diego joined in. “Stop! You’re making fun of me.”

Diego kissed his knuckles again. “Not even a little bit. But you still haven’t answered my question.”

“Now the pressure’s on.” He cleared his throat. “Okay, fine. I’m twenty-six.”

Rich tried not to cringe as he waited for Diego’s reaction.

“That’s about what I figured.”

He let out a big sigh before he could stop himself. “Really?”

“Yeah. Really. I’d guessed mid to late twenties. If I’d gone on looks alone, I might’ve guessed younger. But your manner and the way you run the coffee shop made me think you were older.”

“Oh. Thanks.” He wasn’t sure if that was the proper response, but he didn’t know what else to say. “So that means you’re okay with it then?”

“With your age?” Diego frowned as if genuinely confused.

“You know, since you already figured what it might be anyway before you asked me out. I don’t want you to think I’m a flighty kid or something, because what I’m really looking for -”

Oops. Almost fell face first into that one.

“You’re looking for?”

The Jeep wasn’t moving all that fast in the slow traffic. He could probably jump out of it unscathed.

Rich let his head fall against the seat rest. “Great. Never could shut up.”

Diego kept his eyes directed forward, his jaw working as if he were chewing his thoughts over in his mind. A couple minutes passed between them in silence before Diego spoke. “I’ve wanted to ask you out for a while. Not just because I find you attractive, but because there’s something about you I really like.” He glanced over at him briefly. “I don’t think you’re a flighty kid at all, and I hope you don’t think I’m just looking for a good time.”

Rich pressed his lips together, nodding. “Okay. Thanks for saying that.” Rich wove his fingers in and out of Diego’s. He loved the scrape of Diego’s calloused skin as it dragged over his smoother skin. “And I’m not just looking for a good time either.”

“Then we’re in agreement.”

Diego’s voice had been soft, his gaze never wavering from the road before them. But Rich believed him. It made his decision to go home with Diego that much sweeter.

So with this book you get Ray who is a K-9 handler for the sheriff’s department. He has a crush on the vet who looks after his German Shepard partner.

Damien is the vet that treats Ray’s dog Harley and who Ray has feelings for but will not admit to them due to what happened to him in the past.

This was definitely a slow burn.. Maybe a little too much for me. There were parts that sort of dragged for me and had me wishing they would just admit how they felt about each other already. But when they do they are just so good together I ended up loving them as a couple!
I did love the authors pretense of this story and the characters she wrote in this book! You get the sweet and steam with this book but not much angst.

So all together I really liked this book!
I would recommend this book!

~Kara

FourStars

This was a good book. As an animal lover, having a dog as a central character was one of the items that drew me in to this story.

I loved the plot line of the K9 Handler for the Sheriff’s Dept. and the vet meeting over the dog. It was very sweet. The sheriff, so big and burly, being so scared and insecure was very touching.

The only issue for me, was not enough dialogue and interaction between the characters and too much explanation. I feel communication is key in a relationship, so dialogue, for me, is significant. Otherwise, the story was really good.

I would recommend this book for animal lovers, dog lovers, and law enforcement lovers of m/m stories.

ThreeandHalfStars

While I can appreciate the sentiment in this story, I felt that something was missing.  I have not read McKenna before, so I didn’t really have any expectations going in.

This was a gentle story about loss, strength and a little bit of love thrown in, but mostly, this book was about the training that goes in to a dog certification for police and military pups.

The main characters Ray and Damien were somewhat clueless when it came to the signals they both thought they were giving off, so right away, there was miscommunication.  Then, as they figured out that they were attracted to each other, their romance was just kind of ho-hum.  Nothing gave off a great burst of chemistry or lust – it was kind of a dry romance.

The conflict in the story was hard to take, but in the end, I felt that it and the competition overpowered what I thought would be a love story.  The love aspect was not bad, just not overly well done.

AvidReader

 FourStars

I enjoyed this book. I’ve read a few books by this author and always found them to be an easy read. The writing style makes it easy. I never completely connected with Ray or Damien but absolutely love Harley. What can I say I love dogs, lol. This book was basically a sweet romance, which is not what I expect from Kendall McKenna, but I do love a sweet romance. Overall this book was good and I enjoyed it I just didn’t love it.

Nicco Santori and Rider Davies have been friends and partners on the LA police force for ten years. They’re closer than most married couples, and there’s nothing they don’t share.

When Nicco sees Rider kissing a man, he realizes his partner has a secret Nicco doesn’t know about. Nicco’s more than shocked, he’s jealous, and he realizes he must confront Rider about what he saw. Perhaps more difficult than that, he must confront himself about the feelings for his partner he’s kept buried for so long.

Can things work out between the partners? If so, Nicco may have something with Rider he’s never before dreamed possible. But if no, Nicco stands to lose it all.

This was a great story. Everything about it was great. The plot, the characters, the dialogue, everything. Being a very short story, the shortest I’ve ever read, so you can read it in one sitting, it was complete. I was pleasantly surprised about that.

The plot was interesting because involved two policemen – one who is bisexual and the other doesn’t know he’s bisexual. When he sees his partner kissing someone that unlocks a door in him. Actually, his closet. The author perfectly describes his thoughts and thinking process after this awakening. Afterward, he approaches his partner about his enlightenment. This conversation was very well done.  A great ending to a story. Warning:  this story does not have the characters moving it to the bedroom, but really, the story didn’t need it. It was perfect the way it was written.

I do recommend this story because it was great from beginning to end for such a short story. If you like policemen who fall in love and where one of them steps out of the closet, then this book is for you.

Ariel

ThreeandHalfStars

What story there was in the thirty some pages was good.  But it starts off with nothing about the characters, no back story and jumps right in to Nicco taking in a friend of his brother.  I think it could have been a little longer to make it a great story.  Nick and Alex decide to get together which I thought was great and then it was the end of the book.  Just a little disappointing I wanted more.  But if your looking  for a quick light read this one would be good.

Sherry

ThreeStar

Nicco and Rider are partners in the LA police force..

Now I did think some of this very short story was steamy but honestly it just felt way to rushed to me and by the time they actually do get together it was almost the end of this story and bam that was it. So I really do not know how I feel about these two men together and the whole reason they finally admit to their feelings for each other I have to be honest and say I was really not a fan of.

So I am sad to say this Novella was just not for me…

Synopsis

For by Grace

Being a Sheriff’s Deputy is not all about saving lives and arresting criminals, and each day Grace wonders if she’ll make it home.

While kids at the schools Deputy Grace Halling visits see her as the knight in blue-cotton armor, people involved in the cases she is dispatched to have a different opinion. She has every confidence in her ability to do her job and arrest criminals. She easily takes down a knife-wielding woman and a drunken combatant teenager without hesitation. Everyone—victim, suspect, or witness—has a story to tell or to lie about, and Grace is never perturbed by their tales.

That all changes when she looks down the barrel of a gun. She loses confidence in her ability as a deputy, she loses trust in herself and fellow officers, and she struggles to stay afloat as shift after shift passes. Grace cannot find her rhythm of being a deputy again. And when the Police Chaplain unexpectedly barges into her life, her personal and professional lives are flipped upside down. Grace struggles to find her even ground, worrying that the next time she stares a murderer in the face will be the last.

While her comrades in blue are murdered one by one with each passing month, Grace pushes for a call to action from her Captain. Her worst fear has become a reality.

Grace doesn’t know if she’s next.

Review

FiveStars

This third book in the “Grace” series continues the investigation into multiple, seemingly unrelated, cop killings in Grace’s area.  Various familiar characters appear fleetingly in the story and I was interested to find out if they were to have a major impact on the main theme.  I was surprised at how important certain people turned out to be.
Grace has to deal with unbelievably awful happenings on a daily basis.  When she is advised to think about applying for detective after 10 years as a beat officer I was so hoping she would go for it.  I felt that the effect on her mental health and physical well-being was too much to go on as she was.
Grace’s relationship with Amya, the station Chaplain, changes for the better in my opinion.  I liked the way it was heading and hoped that nothing would get in the way.  I wanted a deeper, more loving and out-in-the-open relationship as I have grown to love these characters over the course of the three books.
I can honestly say I was shocked at some of the revelations in the book but totally satisfied at how it turned out.  I can’t praise this series highly enough and this third instalment is a winner!
Kitty Kat

FiveStars

This is the third book in this series that I have read and I have to say this one is once again a brilliant read. I found this book quite transcendent compared to the previous two novels.
Grace is a very complex character, at times she makes me want to scream at her at other times I found her pompous but at no time did I find her uninteresting and certainly not boring. I guess this is due to the author portraying such a “real” character, one that you can relate to on many levels.
The plot is an intricate one interwoven with the day to day encounters that have to be met by our heroine. This gives the novel a very edgy and realistic feel. Running along side this we are regaled with Grace’s personal life. Obviously in love, Grace has difficulty in handling the complexities she sees in this deepening relationship. Told along side each other and totally interlinked, the plot and the love interest, make this novel totally fascinating and enthralling.
I am not sure if the author gained inspiration for the books title and the novel from Romans, but I certainly found this a very inspiring novel.
~Chris

Excerpt

: (From Grace Through Redemption)

Opening her eyes, she was thoroughly disappointed. The guy, with his dark, curly hair and olive complexion was probably dream of a looker for any straight woman or gay man. He had his dick hanging out of his pants and his fist firmly wrapped around it. Grace held her breath high in her lungs and knocked on his window.

When it rolled down, she glared. “Sir—”

“Yes?” he cut her off.

She wasn’t even sure what to say. She balked and swallowed, trying to start over. “Sir, what’s going on?”

He at least had the grace to blush. His mouth opened then closed twice before he shook his head, his hand still wrapped firmly around his dick.

“Sir, I pulled you over because you were driving erratically. Over the speed limit, then under it, then over again, and you couldn’t stay in a lane.”

“I understand.”

Grace shook her head. That wasn’t the excuse for poor driving she normally got. Normally there were excuses thrown at her, the number one being, “I had to pee, Officer!” She blanched and put her hands at her sides.

“I need to know why.”

“I—I was having some issues.”

“What kind of issues?”

“Well, I…” he trailed off and looked down at his dick.

Grace was impressed with the fact he still hadn’t stuffed it back into his pants. She tried to look anywhere except down at his lap, but her gaze kept being drawn in that direction. Of all officers to get that call, why couldn’t it have been a man? She sighed and looked at his face again. He hadn’t looked at her since he’d first rolled down the window.

“Sir.”

“I was masturbating, okay?” He sounded exasperated and completely embarrassed. His cheeks flashed redder than they had been before, and Grace snickered. He did need to blush. At least that meant he had some emotions going on under his mask of “what the hell is going on.”

She shifted onto her left foot and more snow melted down the side of her boot. “Sir, you can cover yourself up.”

“Oh good.” He slid his dick into his slacks and zipped them closed.

Grace shuddered. What guy would need permission to cover up when pulled over by a cop? She shook her head, not wanting to answer her own question. She bit her lip, trying to figure out where to go with the situation next. In all of her nine years as a beat cop she’d seen some extraordinary and embarrassing things—this one had to top it all. She licked her lips.

“You were driving erratically,” she repeated.

“I couldn’t—I couldn’t get off, and it was getting hard to focus.”

“Sir—why were you jerking off while driving a motor vehicle anyway?”

His mouth opened, but Grace put her hand out to stop him.

“Wait. Don’t answer that. I don’t want the answer. Give me your license and registration please.”

4 Stars for Gage’s Gift (Kansas City Heat #5) by Jenna Byrnes #MM #Police @Totally_Bound

1.2

Title: Gage’s Gift (Kansas City Heat #5)
Author Name: Jenna Byrnes
Publication Date: March 27, 2015

Synopsis

A child is snatched from her home, the one place she should feel safe. Will the KCPD find her before something more sinister happens?

Detective DeMarcus Gage of the KCPD Missing Persons Unit knows that most child abductions are perpetrated by family members or persons known to the child. True ‘stranger’ abductions are rare—and taken very seriously by the police. When eight year old Leticia Braden disappears from her front yard the family is ruled out as suspects but actual leads are few.

Her traumatized parents need all the support they can get, and designate Leticia’s uncle Jack Braden to be their liaison with detectives. When he meets Jack, Gage struggles to keep his mind on the case. The two men share an immediate case of lust, which they fight to keep under control for more reasons than one. Jack’s not out of the closet, and Gage isn’t keen about sneaking around. A relationship beckons, but finding Leticia is their first priority. And as every cop knows, time is not on their side.

This is book 5 in the Kansas City Heat series but can be read as a stand alone.

DeMarcus Gage is a Detective on the Kansis City Missing Person’s Unit.

Jack Braden is the uncle of a little girl abducted from her street.

When Gage answers the call of a missing 8 year old, and meets the sexy uncle Jack, the attraction is immediate. However the priority is finding the missing little girl.

This might have been a short story but you don’t feel like you are missing out on anything. The author is knowledgeable about police terms. I couldn’t help being impressed with the professional attitude by Detective Gage during the investigation, even with his growing attraction to the Uncle. The uncle, Jack is not out to everyone, and he struggles with that secret. You can feel his anguish.

This story captures your attention with sexy, intense men dealing with a serious situation and resolving it in a timely manner. I would read more in this series!

Jenna Byrnes could use more cabinet space and more hours in a day. She’d fill the kitchen with gadgets her husband purchases off TV and let him cook for her to his heart’s content. She’d breeze through the days adding hours of sleep, and more time for writing the hot, erotic romance she loves to read.

Jenna thinks everyone deserves a happy ending, and loves to provide as many of those as possible to her gay, lesbian and hetero characters. Her favorite quote, from a pro-gay billboard, is “Be careful who you hate. It may be someone you love.”
