"Tad’s weekend started out like any other; hitting a college frat party with a handful of buddies. But just as the evening hits its peak, things get up-ended fast. Ditched by his drunken, trolling friends, Tad winds up getting hustled by three jocks playing poker. Now he’s forced to pay his dues in the most outlandish of ways; accepting a couple broken bones or spending an hour with his victors’ favorite flogger, Scott. But the guy’s tantalizing torture quickly proves to be the least of Tad’s worries… and the kickoff to a night of raw, shocking lust. 
Experience the graphic, minute-by-minute account of that hour spent at the hands of Tad’s insatiable tormentor. Addicting chemistry lights the stage as Scott ignites Tad’s reluctant desires into a frenzy of forbidden need."

Tad could feel his jaw ticking, even as his cheeks reheated. “Fine.” He shucked off everything but his boxers, then glared at the obstacle looming in front of him. “What the hell is this thing, anyway?” 
“My roommate and I have lovingly coined it: the Wall of Confliction.” 
Tad quirked a brow. “You seriously call it that?” 
Scott’s tone turned wry. “We most certainly do.” 
“Why the fuck for?” 
“Mm. That’d spoil the surprise.” 
“Whatever,” Tad scowled, still not facing the guy. But the sound of feet padding closer had his blood pressure climbing fast. Not that his heart wasn’t already pounding. 
“Boxers, too, Tad,” Scott murmured in his ear. “I’m to give you the full-body treatment.” 
Tad groaned. Even his ass was going to get whipped? Cursing under his breath, he ditched the last of his clothes. “There. Happy?” 
A low, dark chuckle. “Oh, shy boy, you have no idea.” 
“Stop calling me that.” 
“Stop playing the part.” 
Tad bristled, but then stiffened as Scott took his wrist and lifted it up… to a buckle restraint attached to a resin-coated chain. It must’ve been tucked in the wall’s upper right corner. Swiftly, Scott secured it into place. 
Tad struggled not to freak out. “Is this really necessary? I agreed not to leave.” 
“It’s necessary,” Scott assured, doing the same with his other arm. He dropped into a squat to hit Tad’s ankles next, firmly easing them apart. 
“For shit’s sake,” Tad groused. “My fucking feet, too?” 
“Mm Hmm.” 
Tad glowered, even as his heart rate rose to jackhammer status. 
Ankles secured, Scott made a satisfied sound. Like a deep purr of pure male appreciation. Tad stilled, not sure how he felt about that… or the big palms now moving up the back of his legs. 

Becky's Review:

         After reading this book, I am reminded of that Buster Poindexter song from the '80's, Hot, Hot, Hot! That is exactly what this book was! It is a quick read, but that doesn't diminish the heat, or the humor in this sexy novelette! Kora Knight is obviously a master at writing a sex scene that is engaging, and fresh, and keeps you hoping it doesn't end (and trust me it doesn't for a while)! I suggest this book if you love your M/M erotica on the hot and steamy side, which I certainly do! Thanks Kora, for a wonderful, refreshing read!

Mike's Review

          You know those stories you have to put down for a minute before you combust?  This is one of them!  I've never found a spanking this sexy in any story I've read before this one, and that's just the kickoff to this erotic little gem.  This wasn't something I could read in polite company, unless I had a long jacket and heavy pants on haha.  These guys really go at it, and Tad truly has his world upended. In such a good way!  I can't wait to find out where this story go's next.


The last time Tad saw Scott, the ripped physical trainer left him with quite a lot to think about. And that's pretty much all Tad's been doing for nearly two weeks straight. At his wit's end, he seeks Scott out, voluntarily, on his own terms. Will the completely different setting offer what he's seeking; proof that their exchange's unexpected turn was just a random mishap? Hormones run amok and truly nothing more? Or will being in Scott's presence suggest something different... their newest encounter tempting Tad's resolve while testing his ultimate limits.

Excerpt for adults only: 
Another wave of pleasure rolled through his body, compliments of Scott’s fingers working the small of his back. Tad’s lips fell open. He was so freaking relaxed that, despite his raging boner, he felt like he was starting to drift. 
“Tell me something,” Scott murmured, still leaned over his body. 
This close Tad could totally smell him again. But this time he smelled like warm, savory spice, not the sexed-up cologne from their previous romp. Tad wondered if it was Scott’s natural scent. Real deal or not, it still made him salivate. Which was disconcerting as hell and… well… also a turn on. 
Absently, he licked his lips. “What do you want to know?” 
“What your favorite part was the last time you were here.” 
Whoa. Blunt much? Tad’s eyes peeled open to stare at the floor. God, should he even answer that? In truth, Scott had done so many mind-blowing things, it’d be impossible to pick just one. But he probably shouldn’t encourage the guy by rattling off a list. “Um… finally being able to come.” Screw it. It was probably the truth anyway. 
“Mmm,” Scott murmured. “And did you ever. Hard and all over both of us. Have you ever come like that before?” 
Well, that was an easy one to answer, regardless of how badly Scott just stirred his belly. “No,” Tad admitted. “Never even close.” 
Scott moved back around to the side of the table, working his way down Tad’s body. “’Cause you held off for so long. It’s a shame people don’t bother with that kind of self-discipline. As you well know, it’s definitely worth the effort.” 
Tad’s manhood twitched in agreement. “Yeah. No shit.” 
“You think you could hold out like that on your own? Think you could pull it off?” 
Tad chuckled, a small smile tugging at his lips. “If it’d get me an orgasm like the one that night, I might be willing to try.” His answer was hypothetical, but apparently not to Scott. 
“Good to know.” Slowly, he worked his way toward Tad’s ass. 
Tad stilled at his tone. “What’s that supposed to mean? I wasn’t saying I—” 
“Nothing,” Scott chuckled, cutting him off. “It wasn’t supposed to mean anything.” 
His hands abruptly left Tad’s body. Cabinet doors opening followed suit. And then another towel settled over his thighs. It felt good, though why it’d been put there, Tad had no idea. 
“Lift your hips,” Scott softly instructed. 
Not giving it much thought, Tad did as was told. A rolled towel promptly slid underneath, effectively propping up his ass. Tad frowned. What the— His heart sped up. Oh god, what the hell was Scott up to now?

Becky's Review

   Kora Knight is back folks, and I am so glad she brought our new favorite physical trainer and sexy Tad with her! Book 1 was steamy, and had you in search of a fan, and book two has more of that, but also you get to see a little into the thoughts and reasoning of Tad. I love this character, because despite being unsure of his feelings, and confused, he goes back to the scene of the hotness, just to figure things out of course! Boy do things get figured out! Don't miss this hot little number, and if you haven't read book one, what the heck are you waiting for?! Thank you Kora, for adding another car to your literary train of hotness!                *5 Stars* 


"Bec- We are here with the wonderful Author Kora Knight to talk about her series: Up-Ending Tad; A journey of Erotic Discovery.  Kora it is a pleasure to have you here, I can't wait to pick your brain a bit,so lets get started shall we?"

1. What made you want to read and write m/m romance?

I’ve always been captivated by m/m scenarios and have always enjoyed writing erotica. I’ve already dabbled quite a lot in writing m/f romance, so when I tried m/m a couple times, and they turned out pretty hot, I made a mental note of that. Recently, however, the itch to write it on a serious playing field really burgeoned out of nowhere, to the point that I just couldn’t ignore it anymore. The fact that I’m juggling a few other projects at the moment and yet still chose to write Tad shows just how adamant the drive was. I typically don’t like putting too much on my plate, but for this, I really didn’t feel like I had much of a choice. It was either find a way to squeeze it in or try to work on my other stuff as a total basket case. LOL

Bec- It usually works out that the story that keeps nagging at you is the one you were meant to write, and I am so glad Tad was a nagging bully, or we might have missed out on him and Scott!

2. Are the main characters in your story based on anyone in particular? (you don't have to name names, we aren't that nosy lol)

*laughs* No, they’re not based on anyone in particular. They are very unique and individual to me, actually. In many ways, I suppose Tad is all the questions, confusions, doubts and emotions embodied into what I would imagine a man in his position might experience. But on the flip side, Scott is too in his own right, even though his ‘position’ is a very different kind of conundrum. Tad is awakening to a whole other part of his personal reality, whereas Scott is realizing that he too is awakening (from a self-induced slumber of sorts of his own) to the beat of a man who doesn’t even fully grasp yet that he’s not exactly straight.

 Bec- I think that maybe for Scott he could be awakening to the fact that this could be more than sex, I can't wait to see how he handles the fact that he may be feeling things with Tad that he doesn't want to. Tad will certainly be interesting to watch as he continues to discover parts of himself that he didn't know were there!

3. We know there will at least be three books, how far are you taking it after that?

At the moment I see 5+ very clearly. I’m torn, however, because (as you can tell by the *clears throat* “scenes” I write) I don’t like to rush things. I like to take my time to unearth as many nuances of the dynamic (aka: Tad’s journey) as I can. In truth, I could (and would love to) see it easily taking 6+ episodes before they get to that sought after “place,” but readers are anxious! And I kind of am, too! *laughs* So, to some extent, I’m gonna have to see how it plays out. See if Tad comes to terms earlier than I’d originally anticipated. He does seem to be making pretty promising strides, although, there will be some bumps along the way. A story needs to be believable to me, and an easy, smooth ride just isn’t realistic in my opinion. No, I won’t be making people drag out the tissue boxes, lol, this story is first and foremost a feel good ride, but the characters ARE human and humans, as we all know, are far from perfect, their flaws frequently affecting the size of the roads’ potholes they motor down. ;)
All that being said, once they do reach their endgame, I WOULD love to write a couple more installments just for fun to shed light on what these two crazy kids are like together with all the walls down and nothing impeding them from letting go and just enjoying each other’s company to the fullest. I see a lot of fun/funny times ahead in that respect, and think the readers would really enjoy that aspect about Tad and Scott, too. ;)

Bec- I am really glad to hear this, as I and I know many more people, are in no way near ready to let these two sexy boys go!

4. The dynamic between Scott and Tad is so great, and the pull so strong, do you have a certain mind frame you get into to pull that off?

I definitely need to get into a zone to tap into their mojo. I won’t even try to write them unless I’m feeling it. Fortunately, their dynamic comes fairly easy to me. I “get” Tad pretty clearly, and the same with Scott. I feel both of their plights down to my bones, so unless I’m in a serious writer’s funk, it’s not too hard to zero in on their jive. Just need some extended moments of peace and quiet and I’m pretty much good to go. Although, garnering that kind of quiet time is often easier said than done around my home. LOL

Bec- Haha, I totally get that about hard won peace and quiet! I think that the reason these boys come so easy to you stems from what you were saying earlier about these boys nagging at you! Their's is certainly a story that needs to be told!

5. We love the bsdm aspect of the stories, and how it isnt too over the top, but still smokin hot, do you want to do any other stories with that theme?

I personally LOVE all things BDSM. I was delighted that Tad’s story came to me under that premise, even as subdued as it ended up being. As it turns out, their story is turning out to be more on the lighter side of that aspect with Scott mainly being just a dom-dabbler. ;) Don’t get me wrong, his kinky side definitely spurs occasions for some full on BDSM cravings, but he’s pretty insightful in that fact that he knows Tad needs time to acclimate to that kind of “play,” and fortunately likes Tad enough to respect that about him and not rush things.
That being said, and back to my original point, I would absolutely LOVE to write more BDSM themed stories. The dynamic between doms and subs, I just, I find it absolutely captivating. It gets to me like few other dynamics between individuals do. A psychological turn on like nothing else. *wistful sigh* I am lucky, in that respect, that Scott’s roommate turned up from the very get go, as a very strong BDSM presence in the storyline. As people will soon discover, he’s allowing me to wet my tongue in ways Scott and Tad just can’t. And for that reason alone, I can’t wait to get his part rolling in this series.  He’s a crazy cat, whose psyche gets me humming something fierce. 

Bec- Ahh yes, Red! I love him already! There are just certain characters that I latch onto and instantly want their story, and he is one of them, but more about that later! :)

6. We are so looking forward to book three, how long do we have to wait for it, and will the scenes be just as hot or are you gonna ramp it up a notch? (Don't see how that can happen without setting the house on fire lol)

*laughs* The third installment is set for mid-November, and yes, the scenes will be just as hot. Actually, I believe they’ll be hotter, perhaps one of the hottest of the series. Not necessarily in the way people might be expecting, though. As it were, I’m in the middle of writing said scene now and am finding it quite glorious. I hope you all will enjoy it, too. ;)

Bec- Oh no doubt we will! (rubs hand together in glee!)

7. How has your writing process changed, or has it for the sequels? Do you find it easier, or harder to build on the characters now?

Ideally, being able to write a story from start to finish without breaks would be the best approach to take as a writer. Unfortunately, life doesn’t allow me that luxury at the moment. So yeah, I’ve had to adjust my way of operating, which actually hasn’t been that bad. Because while the process of getting it all down has been choppier, it’s turned out kind of cool in the sense that I’ve been able to contemplate each scene a lot more than I typically would. Each event gets to spend a lot more time marinating, really saturating itself into my brain. And for this particular kind of writing (intense, individual erotica scenes), I think it actually works out well. I wanted each action and event to be very detailed, each thought and sensation to burrow deep into its fundamental essence. So time to really contemplate them has been great. On the flip side of this same exact point, though, another reason why this individual scene delivery is working out unexpectedly well is the fact that, if all these scenes were put back-to-back in one straight-through novel, I truly believe readers would be utterly overwhelmed by it all. It’d be too “rich” for people to ingest all at once, you know? And would detract from the story as a whole. This way, readers are given one decadent dessert serving at a time, at a pace that their sweet tooth can handle. ;)
As for building on characters, both Tad and Scott came to me pretty solidly established so it hasn’t affected me much in that regard. But that being said, it has been very frustrating not to get their story on page sooner. They want each scene told NOW so they can get their happily ever after, and dang it, I want to get there, too. LOL

Bec- I love that you have found your writing groove, and what works well for you, believe me, it is working well for us fans as well! Can't wait till Mid- November!

8. Any plans to do a spin off series after this one, maybe Red? that would be cool lol

*laughs* Yeah, question 5’s answer kind of answered that. Max’s overall reception by readers will dictate if he gets a spin off book. I’d love to tell his story, too. It’d allow me a chance to delve into that dom/sub dynamic I find so freaking engrossing. But it’s also a darker world in many ways, or at least in the way I perceive it, so it’ll be a definite challenge to keep the air light on some level in order to stay consistent with the writing style of its predecessor; Tad’s story.  But I like challenges, so… ;)
Curiously, though, a friend of Tad’s has also been kinda prodding at me, whom people won’t see more of until the latter installments, so who knows. People might prefer that route instead. Will just have to see, I guess. LOL
That being said, if the majority just don’t connect with Max or Friend XYZ enough to want to experience the journey to their final destination, I’d absolutely consider doing another m/m series.  It’s just too delicious a genre to engage in just once.  :P 

Bec- Oh this is promising! Humm, maybe both? Both together? Wow the possibilities, I think I would personally like their stories separate, that way this series can last longer! Thanks so much Kora, you are as delightful as your wonderful stories! 

Great job Becky!  Like I said, we love KORA!  She's a great gal to know.  We can't wait to have her over for fun and chatting on our Facebook page.  Come join us if you want to know more about the series, maybe we can get a teaser on the third installment! - Mike



                     Stars Fall; Updated Cover and Excerpt
                                                     book by: Louis J. Harris

HI friends, remember when we brought you this awesome cover and summary to Stars Fall, by Louis J. Harris? Well he has tweaked the cover a little, and it looks amazing, so we wanted to bring it to you again along with the excerpt he has been so gracious to provide us! We Will start with the summary again, and then the updated cover and excerpt, we know you will enjoy as much as we did! 

Keegan Mansfield is the star of the track and field team and he's destined for Rio 2016. But there are problems; he's lost, lonely and a social outcast. You see, Keegan Mansfield is a bilateral amputee. A T44 Paralympian whose life is filled with false friends and dysfunctional parents. What will it take to change his world? Love? Honour? Trust?  
Conrad Smith is a fine able bodied athlete, he runs for the same team and saves Keegan from a potentially violent incident.  Conrad believes in Keegan. Falls in love with him. Then breaks his heart.   Keegan switches to survival mode, but will he ever forgive Conrad? And when tragedy strikes like a lightning bolt from heaven, will Keegan continue his Olympic dream?  Only Keegan can change his world for the better, and he knows that if he doesn't do so soon, his Olympic dream will be in vain.

Runup to Excerpt:

Earlier on during the day, after a track event, Keegan is bullied and beaten by his nemesis, a guy called Marx. Marx won the race, and Keegan came in second place. According to Marx, athletics has no room for losers and queers.  Keegan has yet to understand that he is gay.  He has never slept with a man, nor a woman.  He looks at men, loves their hardness, but being a bilateral amputee, he can never hold onto a relationship, or so he thinks. Conrad saves Keegan from being beaten to a pulp by Marx and he invites Keegan for dinner. 


Not many people invited Keegan out. There was the time that Patrick invited him to play ten pin bowling and the time that he and Jean went to movies at Sandton City. It was difficult for him to get around. Not having a car inhibited his movements. He would dearly love to go out more often but it was no fault of his that he did not have transport. He couldn’t afford it on his bursary. Having to rely on others for transport meant that he would have to schedule lifts to and from varsity, to and from practice, to and from competitions. It wasn’t easy. It felt as if he owed the whole world favours.
The first thing that surprised him was that Conrad opened the car door for him. Nice touch. Gentlemanly. From that moment Keegan held a new respect for him. It felt like he was being courted.
Hey handsome, you're looking good. How’s the elbow?’ Conrad said.
I washed it properly in the bath and applied more disinfectant. Hurts a little but otherwise it’s just fine. You look different.’
Must be the hair.’
'Actually, brush-cut suits you. Brings out your brown eyes. You look like an American Marine.’
My hairdresser was surprised when I told her I wanted a brush cut. You know what she said?’
Tell me.’
She said that such a change means that something drastic had happened in my life.’
She said that?’
Yup. I told her I don’t really think the word is drastic as much as fantastic.’
You said that? So what did you mean?’
I meant you. I never once thought you and I would be friends. I think that’s fantastic.’
Keegan’s face burned from the compliment. ‘Well, that’s…that’s…thank you. The feeling is mutual,’ he said.
Conrad shut the passenger door and climbed into the driver's side of the vehicle. ‘Your chest still hurting?’
A little. Not much.’
I wish it was me that Marx beat on.’
That statement was enough to send Keegan’s mind into overdrive. Guy friends didn’t say that to each other. Well, they did, especially if there’s caring involved. And then Conrad said something even stranger.
It hurts me to see you in pain, bro.’
Believe me, you don’t want to be on the receiving end of Marx’s punches. Not cool. So where are we going? What do you have in mind?’
A quiet supper. Just the two of us.’
Sounds cool.’
You don’t mind me taking you out for supper?’
It’s not like we’re on a date, right? I mean, we’re just two guys enjoying supper, right?’
Yes. On both counts. Just two guys enjoying good food. Guy bonding. Bronding. Nothing more.’ Conrad laughed at the word he had just coined.
Then why would you ask if I mind?’
Keegan found out very quickly why Conrad had asked him that question
The restaurant, settled in a neat suburb just off the main highway, was dressed in warmth and the smell of Italian cooking from the kitchen. Their small booth had been set with a candle lit table and a violinist played Moonriver for them as they entered. Keegan smiled at the maître d’ as he invited them to be seated.
'I’ll leave you for a moments, Conrad,’ the maître d’ said.
Thank you, Simon.’
As Keegan sat down, he said, ‘You’ve been here before?’
My favourite restaurant would you guess?’
Never have guessed.’ Keegan laughed.
Simon is my aunt's husband. They own this place.’
I guess it’s always better to have a connection in the restaurant business. This is nice, Conrad. Too nice. I can’t afford to eat in a place like this.’
Who said anything about paying?’
I can’t expect you to pay for this, bro.’
I asked you out. It’s on me. All I want is for you to enjoy.’
Keegan smiled at him with a softness in his eyes. An appreciation. ‘Next time it’s on me.’
Yup. And I don’t mind KFC.’
Both of them laughed and from that moment the evening turned into one filled with music, wine and good Italian cuisine.
Getting to know a person is always like finding a new product. That may sound beaten and clichéd but it’s true. As the evening wore on, they spoke about life and the universe, and special friends and what friendship meant to them.
Do you have a special lady?’ Keegan asked.
A special lady, you mean as in girlfriend?’
No. Nothing like that. I can’t afford a girl. That’s not to say that I haven’t ever had a girlfriend. I have. Didn’t turn out well at all.’
Sorry. I’m prying here.’
Not at all. We had a so-so relationship right from the start. My brother asked us to babysit for him once. That night we had sex. Embarrassing for me, but not for her apparently. I was a virgin. Had no idea what to do. I know I didn’t cum inside her. So when she told my family that she was pregnant, I almost married her. She didn’t tell me first. She ran to my mom and told her instead and before I knew it I was hauled over the coals by everyone. But my mom insisted that she be tested before I committed. Thankfully the test came back negative. I wasn’t ready for a family. Damn, at 18, who is? Anyway, we went on a last date. It was then I told her that we weren’t ready for each other. She asked why and I told her the truth.’
What did you tell her?’
I told her I had feelings for guys. I simply wanted to sleep with her to see if I could sleep with a woman.’
You said that? Selfish, don’t you think.’
No. I knew I would never marry her. But at the same time I felt as though she tried to trap me.’
What did she say when you told her you're gay?’
She cried, she said all of her boyfriends had told her that they were gay.’
You’re not serious.’
In a way it was so funny. In another it was damned sad, but that ended our relationship. Now, what about you? Tell me about Jean.’
She looks after me, there’s no doubt about that. Helps me whenever she can. Transport that kind of thing.’
'You have any special feelings for her?'
'You mean is she my girlfriend?'
'I could have asked if you sleep with her.'
'I do not sleep with Jean. We don't have that kind of relationship. It's platonic. All platonic.'
'Maybe from your side, but from what I've seen, I think she wants more than just a friendship.'
'It's not going to happen.'
And what do you think of me?’
Keegan sipped at his wine. ‘I think you’re amazing. And this….all this…is very special. You care. You’re a fine guy, Mr Smith, and I’m happy that you and I are friends.’
Conrad responded by turning away from Keegan's gaze. The sadness in his face caught in the light.
Wanna tell me about what you’re thinking?’ Keegan asked.
I…I was kind of hoping that….I don’t know, I’m being very unreasonable…’
Hoping what?’
That you…that you were attracted to me in some way. I’ve watched you since you were a freshman and always been too scared to approach you. Now that we’re finally friends, I’ve gone and fucked it up.’
Keegan held his glass to his lips for a moment while Conrad's brown eyes searched for an honest answer. Keegan had observed his directness earlier that day; he had displayed humility, subtlety and tact. Coming to Keegan's rescue earlier required an impulsive, positive and self-confident nature. Keegan was attracted to that.
Keegan reached for Conrad's hand and held it gently. ‘No…no… don’t think like that Conrad. I just have to discover what it is that’s stopping me from having a relationship. It’s bugged me for years.’
Conrad held his hand tighter. ‘I'm hitting on you and I don't want to scare you and if you think I'm coming on too strong, just say so and I'll back off. Can I be perfectly honest with you?'
'I wouldn't expect it any other way.'
'I looked at you today in the locker room when I helped you fit your prosthetics, and I noticed that…'
'What did you notice?'
'I could have sworn you had a semi hard-on.'
A moment of silence followed.
'I did?' Keegan knew he had had a semi hard on. He played it coy.
'I would like to think that I can make you feel that way again.'
'I need time for this to register, I had no idea you felt this way about me.'
'Then time I will give you. But, I'm not going to stop thinking about you, and I'm not going to stop touching you.' Conrad said, his hand slid over Keegan's gently, and when Simon approached to take their order, he didn't remove it.
'I think I can handle that.' Keegan said breathlessly, his heart throbbing. The fullness of his cock wanting escape.

                                                             reviewed by: Becky

Grif believes he’ll live his life as a virgin. After all, who would want him? How could anyone find him, a guy who came with less than man-sized equipment, worthy of their love?

What he hadn’t counted on were the two amazing men who entered his life. Tate, a fun-loving, wealthy college kid and Wes, a handsome, rugged ex-marine who runs his own security firm.

Both men lead Grif through a twisted mesh of pleasure, pain, and denial, as they force him to see his value, despite his size and insecurities.

I have to start off this review by thanking the author, Joe, thanks so much for taking me out of my comfort zone with this book, I enjoyed it immensely! I do not usually read bsdm/ degradation books, but this one is so well written, and the emotional connection between these men so real and complete, that I am glad I gave it a chance. This book taught me that every couple has needs and desires that they fulfill in each other, just because those needs may be a little different, doesn't mean they are wrong. I felt for Grif, and I loved the way the story shifted between past and present seamlessly, this gave us a much better insight into who Grif was as a person. This book comes out this Sat., Nov. 1st, I am including Amazon US and UK buy links, and the link to Joseph Lance Tonlet's website for your convenience. Give it a chance, for just like me, you won't be sorry you did! Thanks Joseph, for giving us insight and enlightenment in a delightfully written way!  *4.5 Stars*

During his last night as a custodian in the hospital, Brian Aimes encounters heart surgeon, Donovan Chambers, distraught and half-drunk in his office. In an unexpected turn of events, Brian finds himself in the doctor’s condo for a night of wild, unbridled sex. ‘It was just a one-time thing’ Brian tells his best friend, Eddie, the next morning. ‘He’s from a different world.’ But Brian soon discovers that the doctor’s world isn’t so different or distant from his own after all.

This is a short story that has big impact! I love these characters and the way this author develops them so astoundingly in such a short amount of time. Donovan is a broken man who is down on himself and his life, when he meets Brian on the last night of Brian working in his hospital.The twists and turns in this book will leave you breathless and hungry for more! Thanks A.M., once again for taking us on a ride we don't want to get off of! *5 Stars*
