BLURB
Nursing a broken heart, Will Martin throws himself into teaching classes at NYU and writing. An invite from his ex-boyfriend to an uptown speakeasy called Under surprises Will by beginning to heal his bruised spirit, and he finds himself enjoying both the drinks and the company.

Soon after, Will is shaken by news that his father, Republican New York State Senator Bill Martin, has been diagnosed with cancer. Will and his father have been estranged since Will’s coming out, but he reluctantly returns to the family’s home in Garden City, Long Island, to support his family as Bill recovers from surgery.

Senator David Mori is a colleague and mentee of Bill Martin’s. Bill’s conservative views sometimes conflict with David’s more moderate politics and his status as both mixed race and openly gay, but each respects and likes each other, and the men have built a friendship.

Sparks fly when Will and David meet, though Will’s liberal views lead to clashes with David. Will is looking for a no-strings-attached fling and David is leery of getting involved with his mentor’s son, so they keep their affair a secret, in spite of their deepening feelings.

As Senator Martin’s health worsens, Will elects to remain in Garden City where he finds solace with David and continued trips to Under to seek the support of his friends. After David finally admits his feelings have grown beyond a casual sexual encounter, both men must decide how to bridge the divide to create a future together.

Reader Advisory: This book contains expressions of homophobia and racism by multiple secondary characters, references to disownment, and descriptions of terminal illness and death of secondary characters.

NOW FOR MY REVIEW! 


I THINK THIS IS THE PERFECT QUOTE FOR THIS BOOK! HERE IS MY REVIEW: 

I love this writing team, and I was so excited that there was going to be a new series from them, and this book proves that I was right to be excited! 

Will is going through a lot when he is invited to the Speakeasy, Under, and he finds that it seems to be just what he needs. As Will is getting back to normal it seems, he gets a call from home. Can Will put his hurt aside and be there for the father that really wasn't there for him?

David is perhaps my favorite character in this book, he is a great guy, and when he and Will meet, it is clear that there is something there, but what will it be? Are these two too different, or do they even want the same things? 

I urge you to read With a Twist, you will be on pins and needles for the second book, just like me!

EXCERPT
“Senator Mori, please, come in.”

Greta sounded very pleased as she welcomed David into the house. Will stifled a sigh and set his tablet on the side table in the sunroom. The man was handsome, but, with the exception of LGBTQ issues, he frequently voted like a typical moderate Republican robot. Will hadn’t worked out exactly how he’d been roped into having dinner with his father’s colleague, but, unfortunately, he couldn’t back out now.

Actually, Will mused, I know exactly how I was roped into this. Agnes Martin had said they were having a small dinner and insinuated it would be rude of him not to join them. By the time Will realized his mother had invited David, he couldn’t refuse. Even if Will had had been able to, he owed David an apology. He had been rude to David the first time they’d met.

Will had also googled him and been relieved to learn David wasn’t ultra-conservative but he still couldn’t wrap his head around a gay man aligning himself with a political party actively trying to damage their community. If Will was being honest, David’s relationship with Will’s father bothered him more. He was envious and resentful of the closeness they had. And hurt. Why did his father appear so much more accepting of David’s sexuality than Will’s? The rejection stung bitterly and made Will want to lash out and make David feel as terrible as he did.

But no matter how he felt, it didn’t excuse his behavior. He stood and headed for the foyer.

Will caught a glimpse of David, who stood talking with Greta. If only the man weren’t so infuriatingly good-looking. Will couldn’t think of the last time he’d found a man so attractive, even Riley.

To Will’s surprise, David wasn’t alone. A medium-sized black and white dog with fawn- colored stripes on its legs and a tail that curled up onto its back stood by David’s side. He held the leash loosely in one hand.

“Hello, David.” Will stuck out a hand for him to shake. David’s expression was friendly and his hands were large and strong around Will’s long, narrow fingers.

“Nice to see you, Will.”

“You as well.” Ignoring how good David’s skin felt against his, Will dropped his hand.

Greta patted his arm. “I’m going to go help your mother get food on the table.”

“Thanks, Greta. I’ll walk David back to the patio in a moment.” After Greta disappeared down the hallway, Will turned his attention to the animal sitting calmly at David’s feet.

“I see you brought a date,” Will said with a small smile. He was such a sucker for dogs. Not to mention hot men with dogs. He crouched and held out a hand. “Hello there, gorgeous.”

“Her name’s Mabel.”

She sniffed him delicately before pushing her snout into his hand in greeting. He laughed and looked up at David as he scratched Mabel behind the ears. David stared down at them with an expression both perplexed and amused.

“She’s beautiful,” Will murmured. “Husky mix?”

David nodded. “Husky and Shiba-Inu mix. Or so said the guy I got her from. She’s mixed like me.”

Will blinked at him and David laughed softly. “Sorry. I’m Japanese on my father’s side, and a whole range of European countries on my mom’s. My brother-in-law is always on me about the jokes my sister and I make about being mixed race. The jokes make him uncomfortable.”

“Your candor took me by surprise.” Will cleared his throat. “How old is Mabel?”

“Two—no, two and a half. I’ve had her since she was a pup.”

Mabel let out a whine and licked Will’s forearm as if pointing out he’d stopped petting her. Will chuckled and resumed.

“Do you have any pets, Will?”

He shook his head and gave Mabel a final pat before he stood. “I live in Manhattan and my building doesn’t allow it.”

David nodded. “I think she’s enjoying the move from Queens to Long Island. She seems to like the beaches and canals quite a bit.”

“When did you move from Queens?”

“A few years ago. On your father’s recommendation, actually.”

“Hmm.” Will made a noncommittal noise. He wasn’t sure what to make of the relationship his father and David had. David’s race wasn’t an issue. Neither of his parents had ever shown themselves to be racially intolerant, although Will had a vivid memory from high school of arguing with his parents about why using the term ‘Oriental’ was really, really inappropriate. At worst, they were occasionally clueless, but even then, they’d listened to his argument and made an effort to change.

Sexuality was a different story, however. How could Bill be vehemently against his own son’s sexual orientation but have no problem working side-by-side with a gay man? And inviting him to his house for meals? Will bristled, but he forced himself to tamp down the irritation. That reminded him, he still needed to apologize to David.

Will cleared his throat. “Uh, before we head back to the patio, I wanted to say I’m sorry about the way I behaved when you were here earlier this week. My temper got the better of me, and I hope you can forgive me.”

“Of course. No hard feelings.” David gave him a warm, open smile.

“Thank you.”

Will’s mother appeared before he could say anything else. “What on earth are you two still doing in the foyer? Let David in, Will.”

“I was getting to know his dog, Mabel,” Will said, feeling slightly abashed. Apparently, all of his manners did go out of the window when he encountered David.

Agnes regarded the dog with a soft sound of delight. “Oh, she is lovely. Even prettier than the pictures you sent me. I am so glad you asked to bring her. You probably felt like you needed a guard dog to fend off the cats. I am so embarrassed Fluffers used your shoe as a litter box.”

A laugh escaped Will before he could stop it. “That old thing is still alive? I haven’t seen him around outside and I assumed he’d died.”

Agnes frowned at him. “Fluffers is very much alive. Just getting a bit senile these days. Thankfully, David was very gracious about it.”

David chuckled. “One should always expect the unexpected when it comes to pets and kids.”

“You are correct.” Agnes smiled at him. “Now, I want both of you to come back to the patio. Appetizers are on the table.”

HONEY FROM THE LION REVIEW!!


OH MY GOODNESS FRIENDS, DO I HAVE AN AMAZING READ FOR YOU TODAY! HONEY FROM THE LION: A LOVE ACROSS TIME STORY BY JACKIE NORTH WILL BLOW YOU AWAY! LOOK BELOW FOR MY REVIEW AND THE LINK! LET'S GET TO IT: 




I CAN'T THINK OF A MORE PERFECT QUOTE FOR THIS STORY! HERE IS MY REVIEW: 



Honey From The Lion
A Love Across Time Story
by Jackie North
reviewed by: Becky

In present day, Laurie, tired of corporate life, takes a much-needed vacation at Farthingdale Dude Ranch.

The very first night a freak blizzard combined with a powerful meteor shower takes Laurie back to the year 1891. When he wakes up in a snowbank, his only refuge is an isolated cabin inhabited by the gruff, grouchy John Henton, who only wants to be left alone. His sense of duty prevails, however, and he takes Laurie under his care, teaching him how to survive on the wild frontier. 

As winter approaches, Laurie's normal fun-loving manner makes it difficult for him to connect with John, but in spite of John's old-fashioned ways, the chemistry between them grows. 
Sparks fly as the blizzard rages outside the cabin. Can two men from different worlds and different times find happiness together? 

A male/male time travel romance, complete with hurt/comfort, true confessions, a shared bed, fireplace kisses, the angst of separation, and true love across time.






This book is special in more ways than one, not only is it a terrific love story, but it is a story of Time Travel that is engaging and very well written! That is usually hard for an author to do, but Jackie North pulled it off and then some! 

We meet Laurie as he is starting a much needed vacation away from his demanding job. He is at a dude ranch, and after a fireside story and some really rough weather, Laurie finds himself back in time! 

Laurie meets John and though John is gruff and guarded, he agrees to let Laurie stay with him till the weather thaws. 

What follows is a story of two men so very different who just may learn the lesson that love is more powerful than anything, even time! 

You know I don't do spoilers, so I suggest to read this book, because there is so much that I can't tell you! You will love this book as much as I do!

ALL HE EVER NEEDED RELEASE DAY REVIEW!!


HEY FRIENDS! IT IS RELEASE DAY FOR CATE ASHWOOD AND HER AMAZING BOOK: ALL HE EVER NEEDED! LOOK BELOW FOR MY REVIEW AND THE BUY LINK: LET'S GET TO IT! 




THIS QUOTE IS PERFECT FOR ETHAN AND JASE! HERE IS MY REVIEW: 


All He Ever Needed
by: Cate Ashwood
reviewed by: Becky

Some secrets are too heavy to hold on to forever. 

For Ethan, pretending has become second nature. After all, he’s spent the last decade pretending to be straight, pretending to be happy, and pretending he isn’t desperately in love with his best friend. But in a single moment of raw honesty, all those lies come crashing down around him and he’s left wondering what to do next.

When Jase learns his best friend is going through a breakup, his first instinct is to come to Ethan’s rescue, and he knows just the thing to help. The cabin where they spent summers as kids is sitting vacant, and a week there is the perfect remedy to start healing a broken heart.

In the seclusion of the mountains, long-buried fears and emotions take their friendship into unexplored territory that will either bring them closer together… or tear everything apart.





I love all of Cate Ashwood's stories, but I must say, this one is my new favorite! The way she crafts Ethan and Jase's story is nothing short of captivating. 

Ethan and Jase have been best friends for years, and Jase thought he knew everything about his best friend, but it turned out that there was one huge fact about Ethan he didn't know, no one did. How will Jase feel when he learns the truth? All I can tell you is, these two mens life will never be the same! 

Ethan had a good life, a wife and a good job, but when keeping the truth about himself got to be too much, he made some decisions. Were they the right ones, or will Ethan regret letting go of his safety net? 

These two men are set along a path of self discovery you don't want to miss! I love this book and so will you!

Blurb
After the death of his wife, Tanner Rowe takes a step toward making her dream come true and buys the house with the dilapidated barn she’d been inexplicably drawn to in the picturesque Upper Peninsula. But after a year, he still can’t get past his grief long enough to make the repairs he’d promised.
Recently out of prison, Cole Lachlan has little to his name. Homeless, broke, and without many options as a felon, Cole heads to Red Bluff with hopes of a second chance. There, he meets Tanner, whose loneliness mirrors his own and soon, Cole is trading room and board for rebuilding the burned-out barn on Tanner’s property that hasn’t been touched in seventy years.
Turns out, the barn holds a lot more secrets than either of them could have imagined. After unearthing a hidden journal from 1948, Cole and Tanner spend their evenings poring through the pages and reading about a young man pining after his best friend. As they delve deeper into this forbidden affair from the past, the more Cole and Tanner’s own relationship shifts—from acquaintance to friend…to undeniable attraction.
But as they begin to deal with the newness of falling in love amid Cole’s past and Tanner’s loss, they also become more determined to unravel the mystery of the young lovers who’ve captured their hearts, the rumors about the fire, and what really happened that fateful night.



TRUST ME, THIS QUOTE IS PERFECT FOR THIS BOOK: HERE IS MY REVIEW:


I am so in love with this story it isn't funny! Riley Hart and Christina Lee have outdone themselves with the story of Tanner and Cole, but that isn't the only love story you hear about in this book! 

Tanner has lost his wife and has pretty much given up on life but he must keep his promise to Emma and purchase her dream home. Little does he know what impact buying that house will have on his life! 

Cole has had a hard time of it since he left prison, but he isn't one to give up or take charity, so when a job offer comes Cole can't pass it up, but his life will change forever as well. 

Strange things start happening as Tanner and Cole find a very old Journal that leaves them with more questions than answers, but do they want the answers at all? 

This is a story of redemption, love earned and needed, and most of all, the fact that when love is real it can outlast anything!

Excerpt
Every so often, Tanner found his eyes drawn back to the window. With the exception of a small lunch break, Cole didn’t stop working. He might not know much about building a barn, but the things Cole was doing now he could help with. There was no reason he couldn’t clean or haul debris to the truck. He didn’t for a couple of reasons. First, this was what he’d hired Cole to do. It might have only been a short amount of time, but Tanner knew Cole well enough to know he wouldn’t feel as if he was earning his keep if Tanner helped too much. But also, even though he’d promised Emma he’d follow her dream for them, part of him resented it because it hadn’t been his dream, it had been hers. They were supposed to do it together, and now she was gone and he was here, with a man he didn’t know, trying to make it happen.

Those thoughts made him an asshole, he was pretty sure, but they were true.

He was lonely, Christ, he was lonely. He’d almost asked Cole to share lunch with him earlier, but his phone had rung instead. He didn’t know why he kept himself from talking much with Cole. He was an interesting man, and obviously well read. He had a pride about him that Tanner respected. It intrigued him. They had common ground, so why was he resisting? Their arrangement was temporary and a working relationship. It wasn’t as if any harm could come from it. It would give him someone to talk to until Cole was on his way.

That’s the man I know, Emma’s voice whispered in his head. He was beginning to worry he was going crazy. He heard her more often than was probably healthy. Not just memories either, but moments like this one, where it was almost as if she was talking to him. Logically, he realized it was just that he knew Emma, knew what she would say and how she would feel, but it was also concerning.

Tanner continued working until he reached a good stopping point, then went downstairs.

He was craving spaghetti and meatballs, which usually wasn’t one of his favorite meals. Since he had ground beef in the fridge, he washed his hands and started dinner. He sautéed the meatballs while he got the sauce going. An hour later he had the meal ready, complete with a salad. He went to pluck a plate from the cabinet to fix some up for Cole, then paused.

What’s it going to hurt, Tan?

He closed his eyes, pursed his lips because a part of him wanted to answer Emma. It would make him feel closer to her. But he didn’t. Goddamn it. He put the plate away and made his way outside.

Cole was standing by the truck, with his shirt off. Beads of sweat rolled down his sun-kissed skin, over the tattoos on his arms. Did they mean anything? He found himself wondering. He didn’t have any himself. Wasn’t sure what he would get if he ever decided to get one.

Tanner’s eyes darted away when Cole turned around to look at him. He figured that was silly and glanced back to see Cole’s brows pulled together.

“If you’re hungry, dinner’s done.”

He saw Cole’s eyes lower to his hands since he usually carried the plate out.

“It’s hot as hell. Figured you could eat in the kitchen with me, if you’d like.”

Again, he averted his gaze, this time looking toward the barn. Did Cole not want to share a meal with him? Would he prefer to eat alone in a half-burned barn?

“You don’t have to if you don’t want, of course. I just thought—”

“No, no,” Cole interrupted. He had a slightly raspy voice that was unique to him. “It’s not that. It’d be nice to eat inside, enjoy the cool house. But I don’t want to take advantage of your hospitality.”

“You’re not,” Tanner replied. Really, what in the hell had he done for Cole? He wasn’t very hospitable at all. He was paying him for work.

“Okay,” Cole replied. “Let me get my things. And I should shower first. I’m awfully sweaty.”

THE DRAGON PRINCESS RELEASE DAY REVIEW!


I AM SO EXCITED TO BE REVIEWING VALERIUS AND EVANDER: THE DRAGON PRINCESS BY HANS HIRSCHI TODAY! NOT ONLY IS IT THE FIRST CHILDREN'S BOOK I HAVE EVER REVIEWED, IT IS A VERY IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR ADULTS AND CHILDREN ALIKE! LET'S TAKE A LOOK:



I LOVE THIS QUOTE, AND IN THIS BOOK THIS IS SO THE CASE! 

The Dragon Princess
Valerius and Evander
by: Hans Hirschi
reviewed by: Becky

Published: 20th September, 2018
Length: 40 pages (18 illustrations)

Love is love and dragons are evil or are they really?

The Dragon Princess is a story about love and how it holds the power to transform even the coldest of hearts.

A classic bedtime story for children of all ages written by bestselling author Hans M Hirschi and beautifully illustrated by Felicity Swan.




I can think of no one better to write such an important Children's story than Hans Hirschi, I love the flow of this book, and how it teaches a lesson that we all need to learn while giving us a story, complete with amazing illustrations by Felicity Swan, we can enjoy again and again! 

I won't give much away but I will say that this book is about a land that was put under a cold hearted (literally) spell which takes effect when people get married. 

The dragon that created the spell may have met her cold hearted match when she encounters the prince and the love of his heart, Evander.

 Can these two boys teach not only a Dragon, but a town what real love is? Or will the Prince have to marry a Princess because tradition deems it so? This is a book that will be enjoyed by readers of all ages for sure!

STARTING OVER RELEASE BLITZ AND REVIEW!



HELLO FRIENDS, TODAY I HAVE MY RELEASE BLITZ POST AND REVIEW OF STARTING OVER, KNIGHTS CLUB SERIES 1 BY CJ BATY! LOOK BELOW FOR MY REVIEW AND MORE!

Cover Design: Kelly Abell @ Select-O-Grafix

Length: 25,000 words approx.

Blurb

Xavier Knight was starting his life over. A new city. A new club. The past was gone, and he had everything to look forward to… except… love. That ship had sailed, never to return. He was too old to play the games or stack up the one night stands. Until, an old enemy’s son walked into his club and his heart.


Sebastian Brady was through. Through with hiding who he was. Through letting his brother officers dictate his life. And completely through, with his family telling him who he was. He turned his back on his badge and his family’s heritage in the Atlanta police force. But, he never imagined that he’d be serving drinks in a gay bar and working for the hottest silver fox he had ever seen in his life.


Xavier and Seb have a lot to learn from each other. Hopefully, their growing love will survive Xavier’s past, Seb’s family, and a host of characters with secrets of their own, who all work at the Knights Club.



The Knights Club Series

Bk. 1 Starting Over September 18, 2018

Bk. 2 Letting Go October 2018

Bk. 3 Coming Out November 2018

Bk. 4 Learning Trust December 2018

Bk. 5 Deserving Forgiveness January 2019

Story Background

The Knights Club (formerly the Gentleman’s Club) first appeared in the Warfield Hotel Mysteries Series. It was owned by Stony Whitecastle and is located in Atlanta, GA. At the beginning of the Knights Club/Starting Over, Stony is selling the club to Xavier Knight. He renames the club the Knights Club and instead of a private club opens it the public. Some patrons still hold membership though.

This series involves Xavier and his crew of employees and their involvement with a local police family. We meet Sebastian Brady in Starting Over along with his dysfunctional family. Seb’s struggle with his homophobic oldest brother and the shadow of his dead father, Detective Delmonico Brady, haunts Seb as he tries to make a new life for himself.

Occasionally, a character from the Warfield Hotel series will pop up but they are not central to the story line. Everyone who works at the Knights Club has a past and secret they are running from. They are mixed bag of people who have been suffered many things. The Knights Club is their home and the people who work there are their families. But, even families don’t like each other all the time…



NOW FOR MY REVIEW: 


THIS QUOTE IS PERFECT FOR THESE TWO GUYS, HERE IS WHAT I THOUGHT ABOUT STARTING OVER: 

I get so excited when an author comes out with a new series and the first book is amazing, it gets you so excited for what's to come! That is exactly the case with The Knights Club series, I can't wait for the next book already! 

Seb is a cop, but he hates every minute of it,  he finally decides it's time to start living life on his own terms, and boy does he start living! 

Xavier has just bought The Knights Club, and he is embarking on a new chapter of his life as well,when he and Seb meet, the attraction is palpable, I love a story where the characters have good chemistry, and boy was this the case in Starting Over! 

Not everyone is happy about Seb's decision to leave the force, will he let others dictate his life once more, or will he decide that being happy is worth everything?

 We get to meet a whole gang of characters, both good and bad, but they all have an important part in what makes this book great! I am on pins and needles for book 2, it's a good thing we don't have to wait long! 


                                      the 5 Chemistry rating :P

I DID THE CHEMISTRY RATING BECAUSE, BOY DO SEB AND XAVIER HAVE IT! :p GRAB THIS BOOK TODAY GUYS USING THE LINKS AT THE START OF THE POST, YOU WILL LOVE IT AS MUCH AS I DO!

C. J. Baty lives in southwest Ohio. Her heart, however, lives in the mountains of Tennessee where she hopes to retire some day. The mountains have always provided her with inspiration and a soothing balm to the stresses of everyday life.

The dream of writing her own stories started in high school but was left on the back burner of life until her son introduced her to fan fiction and encouraged her to give it a try. She found that her passion for telling a story was still there and writing them down to share with others was much more thrilling than she had ever expected.


She has a loving and supportive family who don't mind fixing their own meals when she is in the middle of a story, and a network of friends who have encouraged and cheered her on in her quest of being an author.


One thing she has learned from life and she is often heard to say is: “You are never too old to follow your dream!”

BLURB
Gabe and Josh Roman-Wyatt have been living life in the fast lane. Demanding jobs, precocious twin toddlers, an ever-growing circle of friends, and a menagerie of pets means their home is filled with love and laughter but very few quiet moments for the happy couple. Gabe’s solution is to plan a surprise vacation at a perfect hideaway where the two of them can slow things down and reconnect.
Tarlington House, a historic home located on Edisto Island in South Carolina, hosts an annual murder-mystery event which will allow Josh to use the skills he learned from his all-time favorite television detective to solve the case. The serene setting is perfect for fun days in the sun, passionate lovemaking under the stars, and a healthy wager between husbands to see who can plan the best date. But when the other guests arrive, the guys find themselves surrounded by liars and cheaters who will say or do anything to win, reminding them there’s no place like Blissville.
When a guest is killed during a vicious storm that knocks out the power and phone lines, Josh and Gabe’s murder mystery role-playing becomes a real-life whodunnit. Serve and protect will take on a deeper meaning for Gabe when he’s torn between upholding the law and protecting his husband from a ruthless killer.
Ride or Dye includes sexy sunrises, snarky banter, and swoon-worthy romance. It is the sixth and final book in the Curl Up and Dye Mysteries, which must be read in order. Ride or Dye contains sexually explicit material intended for adults 18 and older.

HERE IS MY REVIEW GUYS! 

I have been in love with these two guys since the start of this series, and Josh and Gabe never cease to thrill and excite me with their love and the also the amount of lovely chaos that fills their lives!

Ride or Dye Teaser 2

EXCERPT
I followed Josh into our bathroom and undressed while he turned on the faucet to let the water heat up. “Let me,” I said when he reached for the hem of his T-shirt. Baring his skin never got old, and I knew it never would. Once he was naked, Josh adjusted the water temperature then put the stop in the drain so the tub would fill. I kept my hands on his body the entire time then pulled him to me for a kiss while we waited for the water to rise.

“I love the way you cherish me,” Josh whispered against my lips. “I appreciate all the thought you put into this vacation. I adore being just us again.”

“I do love and cherish you, Sunshine. It feels like these last few years have flown by like a speeding train. At least at this moment with you, life doesn’t feel so damn hectic and insane.” I reached around to glide my hand over his taut ass. “I want to slow it down and soak up every second I have with you.”

Josh reached over and shut off the faucet. “We’ll start with a soak in this amazing tub.”

“That’s borderline cheesy, Sunshine,” I said, stepping into the tub. The water temperature was perfect, but Josh always knew just how I liked everything. “We are a snarky family, not a cheesy one.”

“I believe I came up with that rule,” he reminded me.

“Well, you nearly broke it.”

Josh waited for me to get settled before he stepped over the side of the tub and sank down in the water between my parted thighs. “Oh, hello there, Captain.”

How could I not be rock hard with his glorious ass pressed against my cock and balls? Thoughts of soaking my body turned into rowdy fucking. “Turn around and straddle me,” I whispered in his ear. Josh must’ve liked the husky timbre in my voice because he shivered deliciously before doing as I requested.

Josh let his head fall back as soon as our hardened cocks pressed against each other. I took advantage of his exposed neck, knowing how sensitive it was and how horny my kisses made him. The urge to fuck grew stronger every second he was in my arms, but why rush? We were on vacation. We didn’t have to set alarms to be up early for work nor would our kids wake us at some ungodly hour. I could kiss and savor him in ways I hadn’t in a very long time.

I left no part of my husband’s body untouched, and he did the same to mine. I relearned all the types of kisses that made him shake with want and need. Neither of us let up on our sensual attack until we both trembled against each other. As much as I wanted to be inside Josh, I took my time drying his body then mine before we kissed our way to the bedroom. Turning the bedside lamps off wasn’t even a consideration because I didn’t want to miss a single expression on his face when we joined our bodies.

I loved the way he reached for me, trusting his heart, body, and soul in my hands. No matter how desperate my lust became, I took my time stretching him open with lubed fingers because I only wanted cries of pleasure crossing his parted lips. I pressed my mouth to Josh’s, tasting the passionate cries escaping him when I finally slid home and was fully seated. Josh wrapped his arms around my shoulders and hooked his legs around the back of my thighs, making sure every part of him enveloped every part of me. Just like that, my plans to love him slow and tender evaporated.

RECKLESS BEHAVIOR REVIEW!!


HEY GUYS! TODAY I AM REVIEWING THE AMAZING NEW BOOK BY JJ HARPER, RECKLESS BEHAVIOR! I CAN'T WAIT TO TELL YOU ALL ABOUT IT, SO LET'S GET TO IT! 



AWE, THIS QUOTE REMINDS ME OF EZRA SO MUCH! HERE IS MY REVIEW! 


Reckless Behavior
by: JJ Harper
reviewed by: Becky


Framed and imprisoned at eighteen, six years later Santiago ”Santo” Valentine is not the frightened teen he once was. Taught by Master Salvatore Moretti, and with walking papers in hand, Santo is determined to turn the family name around and distance it from the drugs and prostitution his father’s legacy is built on. 
Santo seeks revenge on his father, the man who framed him, and the whereabouts of his younger brother, Luca. 
When he finds him, in the worst place a child could ever be—a children’s home simply known as “The Pound,” where unwanted children disappear—Luca has a friend he refuses to leave behind. 
At the first sight of Ezra’s brilliant, ice-blue eyes, something shifts in Santo, and he knows he has to help this boy, too. 

Ezra, dumped at The Pound when he was barely eleven years old, takes one look at Santo and knows his heart is lost. He also knows he has no chance with him. He might be seventeen, but he’s nothing more than Santo’s little brother’s best friend. 
After a massive error in judgment, Ezra runs, obliterating all trace of him. 
Santo, sent to investigate a dancer for his club six years later, crosses paths with Ezra. Santo’s reckless behavior shocks them both and leaves them stumbling to trust their hearts.




It is no secret that I love JJ Harper's work, she is an author that can connect the readers to her characters and their story, and that is only one reason I love her! Reckless Behavior is an amazing ride, and you will end up loving these guys as much as I do! 

Santo was framed and put in prison, and he spent the time in there learning who he really was, and learning the ropes and how to get revenge on the person who framed him, his own father. Sal taught Santo the ropes (in more ways than one :P) in prison and Santo will forever be in his debt for that and so much more. 

When Santo is released he goes to find his brother and rescue him from the hell in which their father has placed him. He rescues his brothers best friend too, and he has no idea what that will mean down the road. 

Ezra has such a crush on Santo, and when he decides to cut and run and leave everything behind he knows there will never be a chance for him and Santo, but life has a way of delivering what you least expect! 

Can Ezra have all he has ever wanted and be his own man? Can Santo learn to love with a heart that has only opened for a chosen few? Find out this and so much more when you read this book! It is amazing and you will be as glued to the page as I was!
