When a veterinarian and a construction worker connect, it takes mishaps, mistakes, and a Rhodesian Ridgeback named Rex to show them they’re made for each other.

Dr. Carter Falon is content living a quiet life in a small town caring for his animal patients. That doesn't mean he's not looking for a distraction. After finding himself precariously wedged… naked and at the mercy of a drop-dead gorgeous construction worker, Carter hires his savior to renovate his home.

When Tanner Grady’s best friend and new niece needed him, he uprooted and relocated without a second thought. His life has since been centered on work and spending time with his family, but when he comes to the rescue of a cute vet, Tanner finds he's a lot more interested in the homeowner than the house he’s renovating.

Excerpt

My eyes widened when they landed on his form. Damn, it wasn’t every day a client greeted me in the nude. Looking at the path between me and who I assumed to be Carter on the ground, I tried not to let my eyes linger for too long on his smooth expanse of skin. He was lightly toned, with a softness about him that was impossible to not notice, despite trying my hardest not to.

With a shake of my head, I calculated each step I took to get to his side. Once I made it safely to the top, the floorboards creaking under my booted feet, Carter angled himself to turn and look at me. Definitely pissed off and in pain, and perhaps a bit mortified too, a light blush covering his cheeks. His gaze roamed me from bottom to top before landing on my own. I quirked my brow in amusement and question while strategically ignoring how f*cking pretty his brown eyes were. “So…?” I offered.

He sighed, and I watched in fascination as his Adam’s apple bobbed when he swallowed. “I rushed from the piece-of-crap shower when I heard the knock. My foot went through the board, and it’s stuck.” His pink cheeks turned crimson.

Unable to stay the small smile tugging at my lips, I grinned as I stepped closer. I took my time to get to him, wanting to help the guy out. The last thing he needed was me falling on my ass. Clearing my throat, I crouched down at his side, my focus now on his leg and foot.

The whole area was rotten and would need ripping out. But for the time being, I’d need to tear up the two surrounding boards to get his ankle free. “You have tried to get it out, right?” I felt like a jackass for asking, but it was always best to check first.

Carter huffed out a breath. “Yeah, I did. It’s wedged against something. I tried pulling it out, but it’s a no go. It’s tighter than a virgin ass.”

My gaze whipped to his. What the f*ck? With lifted brows, I stared wide-eyed at him, drawing another blush from him.

“Shoot, sorry. That was inappropriate.” His eyes widened in horror. “I meant, it’s wedged. Erm. It’s just wedged tight, and—”

I grinned. “It’s all good. Give me a sec.” The poor guy looked like he wanted to join his foot in the space under the floorboards and curl over. He needed an out, and I needed to get some air in my lungs away from his intoxicating smell and firm thighs, which were impossible to ignore in such close proximity. 


Carra's Review

With such an enticing blurb mentioning how the two main characters meet, my interest was certainly piqued to check this story out.  That first meeting between Carter and Tanner did make me laugh, and everything that came after was sweet with just the right dose of heat added.

Carter and Tanner are both great all around guys, and other than a bit of awkwardness at the beginning, the remainder of their relationship development in this story was relatively angst-free.  The two of them fit together well, and things between them felt comfortable from the start.  The physical aspect of their pairing was sexy and satisfying without going overboard.

The small amount of drama in this story comes from a situation in Carter’s workplace, but even that didn’t really take center stage.  It was more used as a device to introduce a character that will have his own story, and things between him and Carter were handled in a low-key manner.


Even though there’s not much conflict in this book, it is a story meant to make the reader smile (which by the way Carter’s mother is a hoot!), and it does its job well in that respect.  For me, that has it falling somewhere between 3.5 and 4 stars, and I’d recommend it to any M/M romance fan looking for something lighthearted and sweet, but with enough sexy to give it a little boost.  This book is meant for readers 18+ for adult language and sexual content.

As they try to uncover the reasons behind the attack on Sean, Cole unexpectedly realises that he has reasons purely personal and increasingly physical for wanting to keep this man safe. And as they discover the stakes for their hunters they know that it is going to take more than Cole’s charm, guns and wits to keep Sean alive and out of their clutches.

Excerpt

It was the skulking action that first caught his eye. Even without the dark grey fatigues, not couture de rigueur for urban Brisbane, the light step and hurried, almost sneaking motion was deeply suspicious. Cole sat up straighter in his car, the boredom from sitting for five straight hours disappearing in an instant. The skulker slid along the side of the office building heading towards the back. Any legitimate visitor to the building would go through the front door, check in at the counter maybe. It wasn’t the building Cole was supposed to be watching and it was extremely unlikely that the skulker was the Indonesian intelligence officer he was looking out for but he was intrigued nonetheless.

“Now what are you up to buddy?” he muttered. A moment later he saw the man wasn’t alone. Two more men dressed in similar dark grey fatigues followed his path. Cole looked up and down the Spring Hill street. People were coming and going and not paying the slightest attention to him or the men moving into the building across the road from him.

Cole tapped his fingers against the vinyl of the steering wheel. He knew he should mind his own business. It wasn’t what he was there for and he knew he’d only been given this surveillance detail as punishment for his latest misdemeanour. He didn’t think his career could stand many more infractions. Anyway, it was warm in the car and while it was a sunny day out and midday, outside the air was chilly in typical Brisbane May weather. Still...he caught sight of another two figures and pursed his lips. Someone’s day was about to go to crap, he thought reasoning with himself. And really he could do with some movement. For an hour he had sketched passersby and played license plate poker on and off but mental stimulation didn’t keep the blood pumping. A moment more of internal debate and he grabbed his gun from under his jacket on the passenger seat and slipped out of the car. He was just going to take a look he told himself.

On this street the buildings were actually accessed at road level half way up the building with at least four floors below due to the way a hill had been cut into years before. The skulkers had wound their way from street level up the maintenance gangways which wrapped around the sides and presumably the back of the building like a mesh exoskeleton, up two floors so Cole followed at a distance. He saw the lead man jimmy open a door and the whole string of them, bar one who stayed by the door as look out, slipped inside pulling on ski masks as they did so.

‘Just taking a look’ would end now, Cole thought. No matter how he spun it. He’d clearly seen them go into a building he wasn’t supposed to be monitoring. At most he should call the Police. Instead, he double checked the magazine in his pistol and set to finding another way into the building.

Cole went back down one floor and used a fire extinguisher to break open a door and found himself in a back hallway near a couple of storerooms and the toilets. He slipped his gun into the back of his pants pulling the buttoned shirt free of his waistband so it could hang over the top to hide the gun. Following the hallway he entered an open area with a kitchenette along one wall and an open eating area with a floor to ceiling window looking out onto a courtyard type arrangement. When he encountered a couple of people, he adopted his best ‘yep, I’m meant to be here’ countenance and kept steadily on. He’d had a lot of practice blending in and it did not fail him here. Pretty much everyone ignored him. Just beyond the kitchen was a void through at least five levels with stairs to the next level up and down. The timber stairs squeaked slightly at his steps but still no one gave him a second glance. It was the usual thing, he thought. If you were in everyone just assumed that you were supposed to be.

Carra's Review

If you’re the type of reader who likes spy stories that can be a bit drawn out, have high body counts, and can be a bit over the top…you’ll find that here in Last Loose End.  There’s the requisite spy guy who gets caught up in something outside of his expected duties; an innocent bystander who doesn’t understand why the bad guys are after him; cloak and dagger games abound; and maybe a touch of romance?  This is one of those books where a pros and cons review will better help me get my thoughts down.

Pros:
-Likeable characters.  I did like both main characters—Cole always seems to know how to handle things, and Sean plays the clueless innocent well if a bit too clueless at times.
-The action scenes are exciting and held my attention well.
-I did have a hard time trying to figure out why the bad guys were after them.

Cons:
-This story was longer than it needed to be.  While yes, there are good action scenes, there’s also the gaps between them that are a little tedious.  Everything just felt too drawn out to me.
-When I said it can be a bit over the top, I meant it.  The casualties kept piling up, and it seemed like every time Cole kept collecting more weapons…again and again.
-The point of view changes were giving me whiplash—not just within a chapter, but within breaks in a chapter and sometimes even in a single paragraph.  This made it harder to follow along and had me having to step away quite often from my reading as it became very frustrating.


So again, if you’re a spy story fan and the romance aspect is not as important to you, this will probably be right up your alley.  I’m going to sit on my fence a bit longer, and give you the “this book is for readers 18+” warning for the adult language and violence.

New Release-Excerpt & Giveaway: SURPRISE GROOM by DJ Jamison (Marital Bliss #1)



Buy Links: 


Exclusive to Amazon and Available to Borrow with Kindle Unlimited

Length: 89,000 words approx.
Cover Design: Garrett Leigh @ Black Jazz Design


Blurb

Can two men fake their way to marital bliss?

Caleb Taylor is shocked to learn his family could lose Bliss Island Resort — their home and livelihood — unless he makes use of a clause to marry the child of investor Louis Chastain. Sofia Chastain is more like a sister than a love interest, and Caleb isn’t ready to sign over his future. But Sofia has a brother, and Caleb has a plan ...

Julien Chastain was disowned at fifteen and has made a life as a go-go dancer in Miami, but he lives paycheck to paycheck. When his childhood friend proposes an outlandish marriage contract, he thinks he’s crazy. But it’s a chance at a future that’s tough to pass up.

Caleb and Julien must present themselves as an authentic couple for the legal loophole to work, but the lines between “fake” and “real” keep shifting as they navigate intimacy, public scrutiny, and sabotage.

Love isn't part of the plan, but plans change. If they can outsmart Julien's father and prove their love is worth more than a transaction, they just might find a true happily-ever-after.


Excerpt

“Should we kiss?” Caleb asked.

Julien gave him an arch look. “My answer to that question is always yes.”

Caleb chuckled awkwardly. “For the selfie, I meant.”

“Mm-hmm.” Julien managed to make skeptical sound sexy.

“Okay, shut up and put your lips on mine,” Caleb said.

“Oh, baby. Your dirty talk is off the charts.”

Caleb laughed. “Stop, I’m trying—”

Julien caught his mouth mid-word, shifting toward him as their lips clung. The feeling it evoked caught Caleb off-guard. They’d been joking around like friends, but the kiss didn’t feel friendly. It wasn’t erotic. No tongues plunging deep. But it was sweet. He had no idea kissing another man could feel that way.

In contrast to his soft lips, Julien’s hard chest pressed against Caleb’s shoulder. His right arm was behind Caleb, fingers brushing his neck, and his left hand slid down to just over Caleb’s upper chest. Their position was a little awkward, Caleb’s neck craned to the left, and he had his right arm outstretched for the selfie.

The kiss wasn’t getting his entire focus as he fumbled with the phone in his hand. Even with his attention divided, even with the very un-sexy circumstances of why they were doing this, the kiss felt real. Just as real as any he’d shared with a girlfriend. Maybe even more so. Julien had been the most important person in his life once. He couldn’t say the same for any of his short-lived girlfriends.

It took only seconds to break through Caleb’s self-delusion. His surety he wasn’t into men that way. He liked Julien’s lips on his.

Julien shifted, then slipped, and they were ripped apart by gravity as he nearly faceplanted in Caleb’s lap.

“Whoa!” Caleb said, catching Julien’s shoulder with one hand. “Trying for second base already? Or is that third? Not sure with guys.”

“I slipped! I had my arm braced behind you, and the pillow moved, or—”

“Suuure,” Caleb said. “I bet you say that to all the guys, huh?”

Julien pushed himself upright, his hand leaving a brand of warmth on Caleb’s thigh, before he pulled away. Grabbing the pillow behind his head, he smacked Caleb in the head. “Asshole.”

When Caleb finally stopped laughing, he noticed Julien didn’t look amused.

“I was kidding. I’m sure you’re much smoother when you’re actually trying to put the moves on someone.”

Julien flipped him off. “That picture better be worth it.”

Blurb

For more than five thousand years, Prometheus has been chained in the underworld. Every day, an eagle tears out his liver. Every night, he heals. When Hermes releases him in a gambit to save himself from his father’s wrath, Prometheus must adjust to a world that’s forgotten him. Hunted by the twins, Artemis and Apollo, he finds help in an unexpected place.

Julian Bell is a vampire lost. He left his Louisiana home in 1936 and hasn’t settled since. Ten years ago he followed his best friend to New York, but the country they came to wasn’t the America he left. After losing his friend, he found himself unmoored in a strange land. As he nears his hundredth birthday, he’s realizing how truly alone he is.

When Prometheus and Julian’s paths cross one fateful night, they find in each other a safe path through the shadows.



Carra's Review

I said it after reading book one, and I’m going to repeat it here.  If you are a fan of M/M romance and love Greek or Roman mythology, this series is an absolute MUST for you.  The way the authors weave the myths of the gods and goddesses into a modern day urban fantasy story—it’s masterful and actually made me feel like something like this could be possible.  While not everything they’ve drawn on from those myths stayed the same when brought into this book, there was still a lot that did, reinforcing the commonly-held belief that those deities were some of the most egotistical, narcissistic, self-centered beings about whom stories have ever been told…with a few exceptions.

Once again those ancient deities were humanized in their characterizations, making it easier to relate to their characters as people while still retaining their divine aspects and capabilities.  None were more humanized than Prometheus thanks to Zeus’s punishments making him more like the humans he champions.  While he may have been a bit of a trickster and acted much like the rest of the gods before his punishment, now we find him much more humble and careful of what he says and does.

Julian is a wonderful character, and as a vampire and a huntsman he makes a fitting match for Prometheus.  I love the vampire history connection with the goddess Artemis, and the way this was molded into the concept of vampires as protectors.  It’s just one more way the authors have easily blended mythology, along with vampire lore, into the world building of this series.  The mythology is just as intriguing as the romance.

Another concept that’s brought up is that ideas—as well as people (in this case, the gods and goddesses)—only have power as long as there are people to believe in them.  This concept is particularly relevant to today’s world, not just in a religious aspect, but in the political and societal realms as well.

I could not put Prisoner of Shadows down; add this to the list of books that I’ve stayed up way too late reading!  5 stars is absolutely called for with this one, and I’ll be waiting with bated breath for book 3.  In the meantime, this series has me breaking out my old mythology books from my bookshelves to reacquaint myself with the old stories.  As with book one, this story is meant for readers 18+ for adult language and sexual content.

Exclusive to Amazon and Available to Borrow with Kindle Unlimited

Length: 16,000 words approx.


Blurb

Donnie Watson's baking disasters are legendary, but this Easter, his mismatched chocolate eggs bring accidental but astonishing results to four downhearted gay men. The chocolate sweets spill onto the pavement of a small parade of local shops—and go on a matchmaking tour like no other! From a bankrupt and betrayed baker, to a homeless but hopeful man, to a conceited bar owner in need of a reality check, and finally to the hapless but caring Donnie himself. 

After all, Love means you can have chocolate too!

Carra's Review

This cute set of stories that spring from one of the character’s mishaps is a super-quick read.  If you’re looking for A to Z relationships, that’s not what this little collection is about.  This is all about new beginnings and fresh starts.

The story starts off with Donnie and his best friend Henry in a scene that sparks off the rest of the stories:

Simon—whose brain-to-mouth filter doesn’t necessarily work as it should—and Trev, these two were my favorite of the bunch and the ones I thought showed the most promise to start on a relationship path.  I’m really hoping the author decides to give them their own full story at some point.

Jez and Eric; they have the most unconventional meeting and were the ones who intrigued me the most given their unique circumstances.  And that means that their scene was the most unsatisfying simply because that intrigue level means that the very short time they had on the pages wasn’t enough to sate my curiosity.  Again—I’m hoping for them to get something more.

Henry and Abi…okay, so I really was not a fan of Henry after that first scene with him and Donnie.  He just totally rubbed me the wrong way, and that translated into me not being invested at all in his character. 

And finally back to Donnie, and his introduction to Will.  After what transpired in the first chapter, I was glad to see things started going his way.


The very short glimpse into these four couples’ meetings did leave me wanting more (well, except for Henry), but this was still a fun way to pass some extra time.  Overall, I’m giving this one 3.5 stars.

Review & Giveaway: WOUNDED SOUL by Annabelle Jacobs



Buy Links: 


Exclusive to Amazon and Available to Borrow with Kindle Unlimited

Length: 89,000 words approx.
Cover Design: Garrett Leigh @ Black Jazz Design


Blurb

One night can change everything…

Jesse Sykes has lived far longer than his youthful appearance suggests. Becoming a vampire after tragedy struck seemed the only option when his soul was shattered, after all he’s no stranger to having to hide what he is from the rest of the world. But eternal life isn’t without problems or heartache.

With a good job and great friends, Ian Moreton’s life would be almost perfect—if only he wasn’t in love with his best friend. His feelings are unrequited, and in an effort to move on, he takes a chance on a one-night stand with the handsome stranger he meets in a bar.

Jesse knows the risks of becoming attached to a human, but with neither of them looking for anything serious, where’s the harm? At least, that’s what Jesse thinks until his chemistry with Ian proves off the charts.

A second hook-up solidifies their connection…and brings Jesse to his senses. He scrambles to protect Ian from danger, but it’s already too late. With Ian unwittingly drawn into a world he knows nothing about, events are set in motion that will change both of their lives forever, and it’s up to Jesse to steer them safely through it.


Carra's Review

Paranormal romance in any way, shape, or form is my favorite genre, and since I was already a fan of this author’s Regents Park Pack series, I knew I was going to be reading Wounded Soul as soon as it came out.  Annabelle Jacobs doesn’t disappoint, creating a story that draws on classic vampire elements (superior strength and speed, can’t go out in sunlight, aversion to silver, etc.) while adding some unique touches like the VLCD (Vampire Liaison and Crime Division) for a new look.

While things between Ian and Jesse might have the feel of insta-love, it was relatively easy for me to overlook given this is a paranormal story—particularly since there are a few things within the lore that would contribute to a quicker development of feelings and attachment between the two of them.  Ian is an everyday guy, quick to believe in vampires (in a “hey, this is so cool yet terrifying” way) but there’s a reason behind that.  Jesse is in the class of “vampire with a conscience”…but not all of them are like that.  This does give him a very human aspect to his personality not just after the VLCD came into existence, but also before when there weren’t any real rules in place.

As for vampires that are not like Jesse?  Oh, let’s just take a look at his sire and ex, Peter.  I found him to be so despicable and his actions beyond reprehensible that I almost didn’t want to keep reading any part of the story in which he appeared.  I pushed myself past that barrier, and it’s a good thing I did since I would have missed out on a great story if I’d have stopped.   Doesn’t mean I was happy with him popping up whenever he did…but you know, that means the author did her job and did it well in crafting his character since it evoked such a visceral response from me.

But Jesse and Ian?  Loved them.  They more than made up for Peter.  Jesse’s coven leader, Raphael, and Jesse’s best friend Lys as well as Ian’s best friends Cate and Blake also went a long way in balancing out the darkness spread by Peter’s brand of crazy.


Wounded Soul fell somewhere between 4 and 4.5 stars for me (blame Peter for trying to pull things down, that’s how much I detested his character), and I think anyone who is a fan of M/M paranormal romance will enjoy this story.  This book is meant for readers 18+ for adult language, sexual content, and some descriptive violence (psycho vampire villain, ya know?).
