The Making of Jonty Bloom (Book 1)

by Barbara Elsborg

Amazon  |  Goodreads

 

Finding his fiancé in bed with his brother was bad enough, finding out they’re getting married is the final blow.

Devan Smith needs to cool his anger. He needs to forget the lies and betrayals and work on resetting his life. When his boss orders him to scope out a remote hotel for a possible buyout, Devan’s only interested in getting the job done and getting out. What he’s not interested in is the guy with the piercings, bleached hair, and the smart, kissable mouth behind the reception desk.

Working the hotel reception is the only thing that’s stable in Jonty Bloom’s unstable life. His best friend has had a terrible accident, his ex refuses to move on, and his eight-year-old self is still waiting for his mother to collect him from school. Jonty needs his job. What he doesn’t need is the rude, arrogant, and hot as they come guy who’s rocked up demanding he be let into his room right now.

Thrown together by a freak accident, Devan and Jonty’s lives entwine, and neither wants to loosen the knot. Can the irrepressible Jonty be the reset Devan needs? Can Devan be the making of Jonty Bloom, or will secrets drive them apart?

First in the Unfinished Business series. All books are standalones.

Genre: M/M College Sports Romance

Trope: Friends to lovers, secret relationship


Synopsis

WESTLY

The fall from NHL superstar to domestic disaster was swift and painful. When I became the legal guardian of my five younger siblings, I had no idea what I was doing.

One year later, I’m still lost.

Coaching CU’s hockey team might be the only thing I’m excelling at. But when our star forward is failing math, I have to do what it takes to keep him on the team. Even if it’s going head-to-head with Jasper Eckstein.

One minute I’m confronting the notorious hockey-hating professor, and the next I’m agreeing to be his date to his twenty-year high school reunion.

I don’t know how that happened.

JASPER

My rules are simple. I don’t give extra credit. Ever. No matter how entitled jocks think they are, I refuse to give them special treatment.

It’s not because I hate them. It’s not because a hockey player broke my nose in high school.

It’s fair.

But when Westly Dalton bursts into my office like a hurricane, all my principles fly out the window.

Suddenly I’m giving extra credit.

And I have a date to my reunion.

After one explosive night together, I want more, but his home life is a mess, and I don’t want to get in the way. If all we can have is quick thrills, I’m okay with that.

It’s not like I could ever fall for a jock.

Shaw isn’t his friend—until Ross discovers he’s so much more.

 

Blurb

Ross Stanton is having a bad week—a bad month—really, a bad year. But the last thing he wants, after the betrayal of his friend and business partner, is for anyone else to know just how much he’s fighting for survival.

He’s struggling to keep his food truck and to maintain appearances, but what Ross doesn’t realize is that Shaw Finley, the bartender from the Funky Cup, has seen right through his charade.

Shaw offers the couch in his apartment over the bar, suggesting that saving money on rent might help salvage Ross’ failing prospects.

Even though he doesn’t really consider them friends, Ross discovers that Shaw is great to talk to, easy to look at, and he likes him. Late nights and lazy mornings and evenings with only the polished wood of the bar between them lead to an attraction that Ross can’t deny—and that Shaw doesn’t even try to.

But falling in love isn’t as easy as falling into bed together, and Ross isn’t even sure what he feels is love, until he figures out that it couldn’t possibly be anything else.

Hotter Than Hot
By Ariella Zoelle

Hotter Than Hot 1800x2700

Suntastic Fun, Book 2

Baxley has been teasing Callahan for years about wanting to be with him. When Callahan finds out his best friend is actually serious about being with him, his curiosity gets the better of him. Why should being straight stop him from having fun with his sexy best friend?

Callahan

Baxley is a lot of things: an awesome friend, a relentlessly shameless flirt, a little too attractive, and way too tempting when I’m straight. All of his heated teasing is starting to get to me, making me wonder if maybe indulging my curiosity might be worth blurring the boundaries of our friendship for a night. But what if it’s so good that I want a repeat experience? Am I really ready for that?

He promises me an experience that’s hotter than hot, but can he actually prove he’s not all talk? And am I really ready to discover that I like what he’s offering me?

Baxley

When everything about Callahan lights my insides up like a fireworks finale on the Fourth of July, I knew from the moment I first saw him that he was the one for me. The only thing stopping me from making him mine is that he’s straight. But that excuse goes out the window when he kisses me, like he’s been dying for a taste of me for years. Did I die and go to Heaven or did all of my dreams just come true?

If he’s ready to take a chance on me, I’m not just going to show him a good time. I’m going to do everything I can to make him fall in love with me. Could I really be so lucky to win my best friend’s heart and make him my boyfriend?

Hotter Than Hot is the second and final book in the Suntastic Fun duet. This novella features a friends to lovers, bisexual awakening, no angst romance. If you love cute sweetness, sexy fun, and scorching-hot banter that will make you laugh and swoon, you’ll adore this satisfying HEA without cliffhangers. Each book can be read as a standalone but is best enjoyed in order.

Hotter Than Hot was originally published as Turn Up the Heat for the Boys of Summer M/M giveaway. A new epilogue has been added for publication.

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…

~ * ~ 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!

Aiden Jones, aka the Ice King, is one of the best rugby players in the world. He got there by working hard and sacrificing a lot, including denying a large part of himself.

Now management has decided that it’s a good idea for him to room with Aiden Jones, who Tyler’s had a long-range crush on for years. And although Aiden is icy to him both on and off the field, Tyler figures with a little charm, he can melt the Ice King. But even he’s not prepared for how heated things become between them. Now Tyler’s falling for the same guy whose starting spot he’s gunning for. But all is fair in both love and sport, right?

Suntastic Fun, Book 1

After another disappointing breakup, Lachlan is tired of dating all the wrong women. Even though he’s straight, his curiosity starts to get the better of him. What would it be like to be with his gay best friend, Alessandro?

Lachlan

I’m sick of wasting my time with women who love my money more than me. The only person who has ever cared about me and not my fortune is my flirtatious best friend, Alessandro. We always joke about me switching teams when I get bored with being straight, but lately, I’ve stopped laughing it off and started considering it as a very tempting possibility.

After breaking up with another gold-digging girlfriend, why shouldn’t I cheer myself up by having a little sexy fun with Alessandro? After all, it might be hot, right?

Alessandro

I’ve always had to joke about my attraction to Lachlan because I know he’ll never take my feelings seriously when he’s straight. But he shockingly asks me to show him what he’s been missing by only being with women. This is my big chance to convince him that there could be more between us than just friendship. How can I say no if it will make my dreams come true?

If he wants me to show him a good time, I’m more than happy to teach him a lesson about why I can be more to him than the women who don’t deserve him. But can I make him fall in love with me for real?

It Might Be Hot is the first book in the Suntastic Fun duet. This novella features a friends to lovers, bisexual awakening, no angst romance.

Malachi Keogh finds himself in a job he neither wanted nor asked for when his father, boss of Sydney’s postal service, sends him to the end of the business line, aka The Dead Letter Office. Malachi expects tedious and boring but instead discovers a warehouse with a quirky bunch of misfit co-workers, including a stoic and nerdy boss, Julian Pollard.

Malachi’s intrigued by Julian at first, and he soon learns there’s more to the man than his boring clothes of beige, tan, and brown; a far cry from Malachi’s hot pink, lilac, and electric blue. Where Julian is calm and ordered, Malachi is chaos personified, but despite their outward differences, there’s an immediate chemistry between them that sends Malachi’s head—and heart—into a spin.

To keep his father happy, Malachi needs to keep this job. He also needs to solve the mystery of the pile of old letters that sits in Julian’s office and maybe get to the bottom of what makes Julian tick. Like everything that goes through the mail centre, only time will tell if Malachi has found his intended destination or if he’ll find himself returned to sender.

Meeting Joachim could save his daughter’s life, but it may well cost Isaac his heart.
It’s been one hell of a year for Joachim Löfgren. After a long summer in rehab, he’s been moved to a new town, one far away from the warm Florida sun he so adores, to bolster a struggling Boston defense since the departure of their beloved team captain. He hasn’t even unpacked his skates properly when fate lands another blow, and he’s told that he is dad to a gravely ill child he never knew existed. It’s an easy decision for the burly defenseman to help and he opens up his new home to his child and her guardian Isaac. He’s instantly enchanted with the preschooler as well as her uncle and decides that his life will only be complete if his daughter is part of it.
