Who makes out with a random guy at a club while someone else is giving him head? Not me—that’s who. I’d never even hooked up with a stranger. Welp, now I had. If you could call what I’d done hooking up. But it was so much more intimate than a hook-up. I’d tasted his lips as someone else made him come. He’d gasped into my mouth.

Now I was sitting in front of him and he was asking me to kiss him again.

River Wade

We became famous overnight.

One day I was a twenty-four-year-old drummer slinging pizzas to make ends meet and the next, I was a member of the most popular alternative band ever.

Despite being world-famous, there was no connection in it. I’d lost touch with reality. With intimacy. I couldn’t find a place to be normal. I’d lived my entire life straight-edged while watching obsession destroy my best friend.

Obsession terrified me.

That is until I met him.

The first taste left me intoxicated.

The rockstar obsessed with the writer—rather funny if you think about it.

After a night with him, he vanishes into thin air, and all the money in the world can’t help me find him.

I have to track him down and convince him there might be millions of people who would do anything to get a chance to sleep with me, but I only had eyes for him.

Convince this beautiful boy I’m pretty obsessed.

Pretty Obsessed is an out-for-you romance, with a dirty-talking, obsessive rockstar who falls for a cinnamon roll writer. This is book one in The Pretty Broken series. All books follow a different couple.

Blurb:

From USA Today Bestseller Ella James comes an addictive, enemies-to-lovers MM romance that readers are calling one of the best love stories of the year.

It’s true, I’m keeping secrets.

But I just found out one of his…

My new stepbrother is insufferable.

You’d think it wouldn’t matter since I won’t be here for long, but this guy gets under my skin like no one ever has. All-American, baby-faced, blue-eyed band dork and star soccer player. Everything about him is the picture of perfection—unlike me.

I don’t think Do Gooder knows I’m starting senior year late. And he definitely doesn’t know why. I’ve got secrets I’m taking with me to the grave.

Everyone thinks I moved to my dad’s small town to play varsity football, but I’ve got other plans, and DG’s trying to thwart them all. He’s making my life worse than it already is.

Having him around is a damn plague. But I can fight back.

I found out a little secret about Mr. Perfect. He plays for the “other” team. That ball bat he’s got stuffed into his gray sweatpants—it swings “that” way. The best part about this twisted game is when I find out it gets hard for me.

The Do Gooder…he wants me. I don’t know why. But I know how to make him pay.

`

* This story is emotional, tender, and beautiful, but it has some dark parts. Triggers include mental health struggles, trauma, abuse, drug use, and some themes that may be difficult for LGBTIQA+ readers struggling with faith issues. All these things are handled as gently as possible.

Blog Tour ~ Dragon by K. Webster (Reviews)

DRAGON (RBMC: Tulsa, OK)

by K. Webster

Release Date: September 21st

Genre/Tropes: M/M, Dark MC

Blurb:

From USA Today Bestselling Author K Webster comes a new motorcycle club dark standalone MM romance novel!

They created this monster when they took me as a teen.

Abused me, tortured me, psychologically ruined me.

I was once innocent, fragile, and good.

Now I’m older and everything wicked.

The worst of the worst.

I’m filled with fiery rage and burn with the need to avenge the death of the boy I used to be.

Vicious and violent and vindictive.

A metaphorical dragon among men, thirsty to set fire to them all.

Only my mission of depraved justice will have to wait because Prez needs me for something else. If he wasn’t single-handedly responsible for dragging me from the sick nightmare my life had become, I’d tell him exactly where to shove his stupid idea of putting me on babysitting duty.

My charge is a prospect.

Not just any prospect, but the young, innocent Cove Gale who shouldn’t be within a hundred-mile radius of this vile club I call home.

I’m supposed to be keeping him safe.

But Cove’s a reckless brat with a mouth that begs for trouble.

Prez should know better than to give me a toy to play with.

I break things and I’ll break him too.

The prospect is just a boy.

And he’s just unleashed the dragon…

***This is a gay romance and the third book in the RBMC: Tulsa, OK series. It can be read as a standalone but may be better enjoyed after reading the first two, Koyn and Copper. Koyn and Copper are both MF stories while this one is MM.***

~ * ~ Priscillas Review ~ * ~

5 Stars

Just damn!!! That is precisely what I said when I finished this story last night. I couldn’t put it down. I started it last night and finished it in the early hours this morning. School this morning was an afterthought as I just kept going from chapter to chapter.

This intense book had me wondering how Dragon could ever come back from the ordeals he went through as a teenager. It’s dark. It’s the only thing I can think of that sums it up because anything else doesn’t give his abuse justice. He does things his teenage self would never imagine after becoming Dragon. He knows it, and it’s descriptive when he does. And yet, you understand. How could you not? Then we meet Cove. He almost has the same fate Dragon does, but not quite. And he meets Dragon in the worst way. Yet when they come together again, it’s incredible what develops. They’re so yin and yang. And yet they just fit perfectly; it’s almost unbelievable. The chemistry is off the charts.

I felt every emotion possible with this story: anger for the main characters, excited that they have something you’d never believe they could after the hell Dragon went through, shocked by the detail of some parts, but surprisingly I was never grossed out. Not once! I will say again. It’s dark. At least for me. I’m usually that fluffy romance reader.

Again, I cannot recommend this book enough. I didn’t read the first two in the series. I wish I had. If you get a chance, I strongly advise you to go back and read them first. It’s not necessary if you just read MM like I usually do. The story survived just fine without them. However, if those are as good as this, as I’m sure they are, I highly recommend them. I have a feeling this whole series is going to be incredible.

~ * ~ Maris Review ~ * ~

4.75 Stars!

Dragon is the last book in the Royal Bastards MC: Tulsa, OK series, and while I read it as a standalone, I think reading the previous two books might make the experience better.

Dragon was taken from his family when he was a teenager and endured unspeakable things at the hands of his captor, who controlled him and made him do things that have shaped him into the man he’s now. Cove lived through a similar experience, but to a lesser degree. Now they are both part of the Tulsa, OK Chapter and will need to put their differences aside to take down a common enemy.

Okay, so, first, heed the warnings, because this book is dark. K. Webster didn’t shy away from writing the violence that takes place in the story, although thankfully other scenes at the start of the book with what Dragon had to do under the influence of Night Giant, were mostly mentioned. Still, it definitely wasn’t an easy read. It’s emotional and angsty, a veritable rollercoaster of feelings and emotions as Dragon works through his issues and gets closer to Cove.

Dragon and Cove were so good together. I loved that Cove was so sassy and fought back at every single moment. And Dragon, well, he broke my heart with all he went through. I was glad Cove knew that Dragon wouldn’t hurt him, even when he was privy to the unrestrained violence Dragon was capable of.

This is definitely a read not for the faint of heart, but oh so worth it in the end. Highly recommendable!

Release Blitz ~ Tempting Him by Isabel Lucero (Reviews)

 

TEMPTING HIM (South River University #4) by Isabel Lucero

Release Date: September 18th

Blurb:

When my dad called to lecture me about how it’s time to settle down, quit partying, and get a job that will actually prepare me for life after college, I agreed. Mostly.

After spring break, I’ll buckle down and be ready to work, but until then, I’m getting my fill of fun. Which is why when I spot an attractive man sitting alone at a bar, I approach him with the hopes of being able to tempt him into a night full of pleasure. After all, being with an older guy is just about the only thing I haven’t done.

When I wake up in his bed with a note that makes it clear he doesn’t intend on seeing me again, I take it in stride. But when I show up to the job my dad set up for me, it turns out my new boss, Aleksander Drakos, is the guy who thought he’d be done with me after a one-night stand. On top of that, apparently he’s a friend of my dad’s.

Trying to remain professional is pointless. Working with him day after day is just too tempting to not have another taste.

I never thought I’d go to college a virgin, but unless something changes, and fast, that’s what’s going to happen. In comes Harden Hart, my All American boy-next-door best friend with an offer to help in a way I’d never imagined.

The boy who turned everything he touched to gold had a filthy side to him I’d never seen. Oh, and did I mention he’s straight?

We could keep this fun but we had to hide it from both our fathers. We could smile for the cameras, focus on winning the state swimming championship and maintain Harden’s image. Easy enough, right?

Only Harden didn’t want to hide. His addiction to our not-so-private hook-ups put everything at risk with his father’s planned presidential run, and I risked losing my best friend if anyone found out.

But the biggest risk of all—the risk of breaking my own heart by falling for someone who was never mine to begin with.

Maybe love just isn’t in the equation.

Excerpt Reveal ~ Saint by Sierra Simone

SAINT by Sierra Simone

Release Date: September 7th

Genre/Tropes: M/M/Second-chance romance/Brothers Best Friend/Forbidden Romance

Blurb:

I can’t have Elijah Iverson.

I can’t have him because he’s my older brother’s best friend. I can’t have him because I broke his heart five years ago; because he’s now engaged to someone else—someone kind and dependable who deserves his whiskey eyes, his soft mouth, his fierce intellect.

I can’t have Elijah because I’ve chosen God instead.

The Bell brothers, though . . . well, we don’t exactly have the greatest track record with vows. But I’m determined to do this monk thing right—to pledge myself to a cloistered life and spend the rest of my years in chastity and prayer. But now Elijah’s here. He’s here and he’s coming with me on my European monastery road trip, and between the whispered confessions and the stolen kisses and the moments bent over an ancient altar, my vows are feeling flimsier by the day.

And vows or not, I know in my heart that it would take more than a good and holy monk to resist Elijah Iverson right now. It would take a saint.

And we all know that I’m no saint.

(This is the third full-length standalone in the Priest Collection, featuring Father Bell’s brother, Aiden Bell. You do not have to read Priest or Sinner to read Saint.)

The Last Crimes of Peregrine Hind – Sierra Simone

Peregrine Hind, known to all as the bloodiest highwayman ever to bedevil the road, seeks only one thing—revenge against the Dartham family. And so when a robbery sends the second Dartham son and notorious rakehell Alexander Dartham tumbling to Peregrine’s feet, it seems like fate has given Peregrine his vengeance at last. Except then Alexander offers him a desperate bargain: to kidnap him instead, so Peregrine can harvest a generous ransom from Alexander’s family first. Peregrine agrees, but he’s in no way prepared for a captive like Alexander, who insists only on the softest beds and the finest wines…and who enjoys being tied up a little too much…

 

Two Rakes for Mrs. Sparkwell – Eva Leigh

The last thing Mrs. Vivian Sparkwell wants is to tie her life to another stifling husband. But thanks to the surprise terms of her last marriage contract, if she refuses any reasonable offer to wed again, she loses her widow’s portion. What she needs is a thorough and public ruining to make her would-be suitors cry off. Who better to provide the necessary scandal than notorious rake Rushton Cantley? Yet when Rush proposes that his friend, gaming hell bruiser Jack Morgan, join in on the ruination, Vivian can’t decide if she’s shocked—or aroused. How far is too far when infamy is on the line?

 

A Rake, His Patron, & Their Muse – Nicola Davidson

London playwright and notorious rake Lennox Townsend is renowned for bold melodrama and bolder pleasures. When he loses interest in both, his shy yet devoted patron Lord Jonathan Grant escorts him to a country boarding house managed by repressed widow, Mrs. Viola Prescott. The trio soon surrender to sizzling—and forbidden—passion, made sweeter as each share their deepest secrets and find acceptance of their true self. Yet cold reality is ever ready to intrude, and they know happiness is fleeting. Or is it?

 

Monsieur X – Adriana Herrera

Joseph Cantor Marshall never imagined reaching the pinnacle of artistic success would be so… uninspiring. Desperate for a spark of excitement he attends the notorious masked soirée at the most exclusive sex club in Paris. The moment he walks in he’s entranced by the mysterious X, the embodiment of the painter’s darkest fantasies. But X is as slippery as he is tempting, and soon Marshall’s days and nights are consumed by growing desire for his elusive lover. Will falling for X prove to be Marshall’s undoing or his greatest masterpiece?

 

Sold to the Duke – Joanna Shupe

Though she once lived a life of privilege, Lady Eliza is now destitute and desperate to care for her ill sister. She decides to sell the one thing of value she has left: her virginity. At the auction, a shocked Duke of Blackwood recognizes Eliza and refuses to allow her to fall into the clutches of a depraved bidder. But his role of noble rescuer is upended when the proud beauty insists on giving him his money’s worth…

But the biggest risk of all—the risk of breaking my own heart by falling for someone who was never mine to begin with.

Maybe love just isn’t in the equation.

***The Friendship Equation is a childhood best-friends-to-lovers, bi for you, forbidden sports romance standalone, featuring a dirty-talking boy next door and his sweet virginal best friend.

Surprise Announcement ~ The Best Men by Sarina Bowen & Lauren Blakely


Bestselling authors Sarina Bowen and Lauren Blakely team up for the first time with
THE BEST MEN!

 

Their fling began with a drunk text and a dare…

This enemies-to-lovers, opposites-attract, irresistibly sexy romance between the best man and the other best man releases January 25th in all formats. A standalone novel, THE BEST MEN comes fully equipped with all the features you know and love from Lauren and Sarina! In this romance, you can expect to find…

 

One wedding, two best men, three nights to sneak into his room…

I also used the phrase “super hot wingman,” so I’d like to die now.

Instead, I have to plan a wedding with the aforementioned hottie and share a too-small guesthouse in steamy Miami.

Three days in the sun with the cocky, charming former athlete who likes to push my buttons? Fine, two can play at that let’s-infuriate-each-other game.

Until Asher ups the stakes with one wildly sexy suggestion. A no-strings fling, then I go back to my single dad life in New York, and he returns to his star-studded one.

Sign me up.

But the more nights I spend with the other best man, the more I want days too, and that just can’t happen. Especially when I find out the real reason why…
