RIGHT AS RAIN: HIDDEN LAKE 2 REVIEW!!



HELLO FRIENDS, I HAVE ANOTHER AWESOME BOOK FOR YOU TODAY! RIGHT AS RAIN; HIDDEN LAKE 2 BY FREY ORTEGA! (I MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE BUGGED HIM ABOUT WHEN THIS ONE WAS COMING OUT CAUSE I LOVE THIS SERIES SO MUCH!) ;P I HAVE MY REVIEW, THE BUY AND GOODREADS LINK, AND EVEN AN EXCERPT FOR YOU, SO LET'S GET TO IT:





YES! LOVE THIS QUOTE FOR THIS STORY! HERE IS MY REVIEW!



                           Right as Rain (Hidden Lake #2) by: Frey Ortega
                                                              reviewed by: Becky




For Langley Day, mating the alpha Aiden Macmillan is just the tip of the iceberg: there are more forces at play than meets the eye. At first, there’s Aiden’s reluctance into the mating, but there are also problems from the past as well as the future that they both have to meet head on.
Aiden’s past is filled with secrets that could shatter Hidden Lake pack itself, not to mention his concern for werewolf lore, where mates of an Alpha turn into an Omega. Aiden doesn’t want anything to happen to Langley, let alone something that could endanger his life, especially because of Langley’s youth and inexperience. Upbeat, effervescent Langley, however, couldn’t care less.
From psychotic people who think they have a say in Aiden and Langley’s life to a war right on the streets of Hidden Lake itself, Aiden and Langley will have to trust each other and fight for the day their lives finally become Right as Rain.


Yay, is the first word that comes to mind when I think of this book, I was so excited for Aiden and Langley's story, and of course Frey delivered and then some! This is a series that you will fall in love with for sure, and this book just shot to the top of my 'Re-read A Lot' list! 

Aiden is hesitant to mate Langley, even though there is no doubt that they are destined mates. Aiden wants to keep Langley safe, and he has ghosts in his past that aren't safe at all! Can Aiden ignore the desires of his heart and soul, or will his passion and want for Langley win out?

Langley is a great guy, young and energetic, and he loves his status as the mail carrier for hidden lake, but what he loves more it seems, is Aiden. Can he make Aiden see that they are made for each other, and no matter what they have to face they will face it together?

Mating won't end their problems, as it just presents new ones, can these two men keep each other safe and well while keeping their pack safe as well? Oh friends, you gotta get this book, these questions and more will be answered when you read it!

Thanks Frey, for giving your heart and soul with every book, and making them all wonderful and bound for the Re-read A Lot List!

NOW IS AN EXCERPT FOR YOU TO ENJOY (AND BOY WILL YOU ENJOY IT ;P)


“If I touch you, Langley, I don’t think I’ll be able to stop.” Aiden said. His voice became huskier, rougher and more guttural as his hands slowly rubbed up and down Langley’s shoulders, down his forearms and finally to his hands, clasping them together. “And I don’t know if I’m ready to be addicted.”
“It’s kind of too late to say that now, isn’t it?” Langley whispered as he drew ever closer to Aiden’s body, pressing their chests together and making the office chair lean back. Langley could feel Aiden strain to keep his feet planted on the ground. The tensing of the man’s muscles, all the way from his shins to his thighs, was apparent even to Langley, who was just sitting on top of him. “Because all I know is that I’ve been thinking of you for the past few weeks, trying to figure out why you pushed me away. I think it’s safe to say I’m addicted to you already. By the way, I forgive you for leaving me in the lurch like that.” Langley grinned.
Aiden smiled softly. “Thank you, Langley.” He said, just his touch becoming firm as he placed his hands on either side of Langley’s waist. “But you’re right. I can’t stop now.” Those hands traveled down to Langley’s shorts, unbuttoning them and then quickly removing them from the younger wolf’s body, throwing them to the side. “Now I want to feel every little part of you.”
Langley’s cheeks turned just slightly pink. He had gone commando, and as Aiden saw Langley’s half-erect shaft bob slightly, the alpha’s grin widened and a twinkle appeared in his eyes. But even as he felt a slight sense of embarrassment permeate inside of him, he could also feel a sense of need that strengthened all the more as he looked at that mischievous twinkle in Aiden’s eyes.
Langley’s pecker twitched underneath Aiden’s gaze, and Langley couldn’t help but slowly take one of Aiden’s hands, guiding Aiden’s calloused fingers up his smooth, supple thighs, towards the softness of his pelvis, and then curling around the hairless base of his shaft.
And there, inside Aiden’s heat and his palm, did Langley’s cock grow to full length.
“Well, this isn’t really a little part at all, isn’t it?” Aiden said, breathing heavily against Langley’s ear. Aiden’s hands simply curled around Langley’s shaft, slow and gentle at first but then the grip tightened until Langley could feel the ache permeate from around the base of his shaft all the way through his body.
Langley gasped. His fingers curled, gently pressing into Aiden’s biceps. Rocking his hips forward and back, trying to buck his hips into Aiden’s touch, Langley’s eyes closed. This was bad. He’d originally set out to try and seduce Aiden, and it seemed that the man was seducing him. Langley knew he needed to take matters back into his own hands.
First, he needed to lower Aiden’s inhibitions. Langley grinned. It almost seemed like he was planning something rather nefarious, when really, all he wanted to do was make Aiden feel a little bit of payback for making Langley feel as though he was going to be thrown aside.
Gently nudging himself away, Langley pulled himself off of Aiden’s lap, settling down to his knees in front of his mate. Methodically, Langley had begun to unbuckle the man’s belt, as well as unzip and unbutton his pants simply to reveal what was underneath. Aiden didn’t seem to be doing anything in response. His hands grabbed ever tighter at his armrests, but otherwise, he was breathing deeply and staring into Langley’s eyes.

THESEUS: TWELVE LABORS #7 REVIEW:


HELLO FRIENDS, I AM HERE WITH CREE STORM'S LATEST RELEASE: THESEUS, TWELVE LABORS #7! I LOVE THIS SERIES, AND THIS BOOK IS MORE OF THE SAME BRILLIANCE, BELOW IS MY REVIEW, THE BUY LINK AND GOODREADS LINK, AND EVEN A SHORT EXCERPT: LET'S GET STARTED!



I LOVE THIS QUOTE FOR THIS COUPLE! HERE IS MY REVIEW:


                                 Theseus (Twelve Labors #7) by: Cree Storm
                                                             reviewed by: Becky


Hera and Aries have taken over Olympus. The other Gods have one chance to free Zeus and take his rightful place. However, in order to do so the other Gods must be willing to sacrifice their freedom for his. Theseus's labor is to capture the bull…but this is just crazy. 
Taurus is thrown for a loop when he is told he is the mate to a Greek God. Theseus is amazing and keeping his hands off the man is next to impossible. However, finding out that there are rules to mating with a constellation comes as a shock to everyone.
They have three days to find Taurus's replacement or he returns to the sky and Theseus will cease to exist.  Can they do this while Phobos is hot on their tails, wreaking terror, to stop them from succeeding on their journey? Or will he succeed where others have failed and Taurus and Theseus be doomed?
                      



Ok, I have to say before going any further; what a hot cover that is, whew! Ok now that I have said that let me say that the book is hot too, and brilliant! My favorite thing about Cree Storm is that I know whatever book I read from her, no matter which series, it will have loads of imagination and creative storylines! I need to know how she comes up with this stuff ;p! 

Theseus has found out who is mate is, and boy he couldn't be more shocked, I mean it isn't everyday that you find out your mate is a constellation now is it? Theseus is thrown for a loop, but he must admit his mate is one sexy bull (in and out of bed it seems ;p) now if he can just get a replacement for Taurus so he can keep his mate, oh yeah and keep existing! 

Taurus is thrown for a loop that he is mated to Theseus, well anyone for that matter, but it gets even more crazy when he learns he has three days to find his replacement and get him up in the sky. Can they do it, even with the help of their friends? 

The answers to this book will surprise you, and man are they great! This one is full of twists and turn friends, and you better hang on for the wonderful, wild ride! Thanks Cree, for once again giving us a wonderful story we can lose ourselves in! 

                                                        the 5 white bull rating :)

BOY DO YOU NEED TO GRAB THIS ONE FRIENDS! HERE IS AN EXCERPT WITH A LITTLE HEAT FOR YA:

Theseus would have been lying if he didn’t say he was nervous about initiating his mate into the joys of sex, but damn if he was not excited as well. Just feeling Taurus’s ass muscles gripping his fingers was making his cock leak with anticipation. “Theseus…Please…I…I…” Taurus begged as he thrashed his head from side to side as his cock twitched once more in need. Quickly Theseus removed his fingers as he said, “For your first time, it might be best to get on your hands and knees.” “But I want to see you.” Theseus panted. Thinking a moment, Theseus said, “How about we start with you on your hands and knees and when I am ready to come, we turn you around. I just think it will be easier for you and I don’t want to hurt you, babe.” Taurus did as his mate said and turned. Once he was on his hands and knees, Theseus took a slow in and out breath to get his libido under control, and he grasped Taurus by the hips and slowly pushed in. Feeling Taurus tense, Theseus stopped and said quietly as he rubbed Taurus’s sides, “Just relax, T, and push out. I promise, it will get better.” Taurus panted and stammered. “O-Okay.” Once again Theseus grasped Taurus’s hips and pushed until he passed the muscle ring and then stopped to allow his mate time to adjust. “Don’t st–st–stop…I–I want…thi…this,” Taurus said through deep breaths. 

 Theseus leaned forward, which caused him to push in a bit further and make Taurus moan as Theseus said quietly, “I will not rush this, Taurus. There is only one first time we get and I want it to be special for you.” “It is my mate making love to me, Theseus. That in itself is special,” Taurus said with a groan as Theseus went in a little deeper. Theseus swallowed hard as Taurus grasped his cock in his tight channel. Each time Taurus spoke or even moved, it would clasp and release a little so that Theseus would go a little deeper. Taking Taurus tighter by the hips, Theseus pushed in until he felt his balls slapping Taurus’s ass and his mate hissed, causing him to stop any thought of movement. Rubbing Taurus’s back and sides softly, Theseus whispered, “Just breathe, babe, and try and relax. It will be okay and soon it will be fantastic.” 

HEHE I AM SUCH A BOOK TEASE ;P! NOW YOU NEED MORE RIGHT? I KNEW IT, YOU WILL LOVE THIS ONE FRIENDS! THANKS FOR JOINING ME FOR MY REVIEW OF THESEUS, NOW RUN AND GRAB IT SO YOU CAN READ THIS GEM FOR YOURSELF!

WHAT WHO WRITES IS READING: LEONA WINDWALKER!




HELLO FRIENDS, HOPE YOU GUYS ARE HAVING A GREAT WEEKEND, I AM BACK WITH THE WHAT WHO WRITES IS READING SEGMENT, AND THIS WEEK I  HAVE LEONA WINDWALKER, AND BOY DOES SHE HAVE A GREAT POST FOR US! SHE PICKED 8 BOOKS, SO I AM GONNA DO IT A LITTLE DIFFERENTLY, I WILL PUT THE COVER AND BOOK LINK UP, AND HER POST ABOUT EACH BOOK UNDER IT! IF I HAVE REVIEWED THE BOOK, I WILL PUT THE LINK TO MY REVIEW UNDER THE BUY LINK, AND WILL PUT MY LINKS TO LEONA'S REVIEWS I HAVE DONE AT THE END! ENJOY FRIENDS: HERE IS LEONA'S INITIAL POST:


First I'd like to thank Bike Book Reviews for inviting little ol' me here to talk your ear off about what I've been reading. I have always loved reading and truth be told, more often than not I have to have something I'm reading pried out of my hands to do whatever it is I'm supposed to be doing. Bedtime and my other half wants us to “just go to sleep, damn it?” Yup, my Kindle with it's little light more likely than not is making a wee glow in the darkness as I just have to finish this page, which somehow becomes the next chapter. Ditto for waiting for the laundry to finish washing, or just sitting down to have a quick cup of coffee, or anything else. I even have to stop myself and promise that I can reward myself with reading time AFTER I make my word count writing goal for the day. I'll admit I was that kid who had to read all the signs we passed, the ceral boxes on the table, and even once when staying the night at a relative's who had nothing else I could easily just pick up to read, I read a dictionary I found.


My reading moods tend to vary and now that I get to read my choice of books, I go through phases. Lately I've been going through a reading routine where I choose a contemporary romance, then a sci fi, then a contemporary, then a fantasy, and so on. I admit I like to delve dep into the stacks when looking so can be found choosing titles from Amazon from authors I've never heard of before, to back list titles from popular authors, to re-reading old favourites. Here's a sampling of what I've read over the past month:

STILL WATERS: F.E. FEELEY JR.:



STILL WATERS DREAMSPINNER LINK


Still Waters by F.E. Feeley- I adore this man's contemporary spooky suspense stories. I wouldn't call them horror as there's nothing horrific at all, but plenty of chills and thrills with just the right seasoning of romance. I love how this and each of his stories in his Human Wraiths series look at that which makes us human and the emotions that drive us.

UNDER GLASS: REBECCA COHEN:



Under Glass by Rebecca Cohen- This was a sci fi story that simply blew me away. You don't have to like spaceships and aliens to love this. I was reminded of the planet builders in Hitchhiker's Guide in a way, but this is not a comedy. Instead, it's a story of self discovery and love. Simply wonderful.

POWER PLAY 1 & 2 BY CAT GRANT AND RACHEL HAIMOWITZ:





The two Power Play novels by Cat Grant and Rachel Haimowitz- Not for the faint at heart (the scene with the electro-shock coffin even made me pause so I could clear my head), this is a love story but between two very stubborn men, one of whom is a sadist of the BDSM variety. All play is safe, sane, and consensual and written by two folks in the lifestyle, so if you're looking for a good hard BDSM novel, this may tickle your fancy.


THE OTHER SIDE OF WINTER: G.B. GORDON:



The Other Side of Winter by G.B. Gordon- This is the sequel to Santuario. Now, this is a curious mix. It's sci fi as it's set on a colony world, but it reads as contemporary as their tech and lifestyle are not that far removed from our own in many ways. Just enough “other” to give it distinct flavour. It's realistic and it falls under mystery/suspense as the two MCs work crime (homicide in the case of Santuario). It deals with the crime, the two men trying to build on their fledgeling relationship, and also changes coming to their world as they work to end a sort of class stratification. Both books get a hearty two thumbs up from me.

SPELLBOUND: JACOB Z. FLORES:




Spellbound by Jacob Flores- This was something a little different from this author. It's NA for one thing and for another, it's fantasy. I fell in love with his contemporary world filled with warlocks and witches and his spin on vampires. Lovely coming of age tale that explores self perception, first sexual romantic relationships, and personal responsibility. He did an ace job and I am hoping there will be more of these.

DOWN and DIRTY: RHYS FORD:




Down and Dirty by Rhys Ford- I'm going to just say it here. I have this author on my “Oh My God, They Have a new book And If I don't Read It, I'm Gonna Die” list.


KLAXON AT THE CORE: TAYLR ANDOR



KLAXON AT THE CORE LESS THAN THREE PRESS BUY LINK

Klaxon at the Core by Tayla Andor- This is the sequel to Signal To Noise and it really filled my appetite for some sci fi with alien baddies, hot guys, romance, and lots and lots of action (and not just the sexy kind!).

WELL HOLY CRAP, THE 7 I HAVEN'T READ SOUND AMAZING, AND I KNOW THE ONE I HAVE REVIEWED WAS, AND THESE ARE AWESOME AUTHORS YOU WROTE ABOUT, THANKS LEONA (DIGS IN POCKET BOOK FOR CREDIT CARD), I THANK YOU BUT MY BANK ACCOUNT DOESN'T ;P! HERE ARE THE LINKS TO THE REVIEWS I HAVE DONE FOR LEONA:

KICK AT THE DARKNESS REVIEW!!


HEY THERE FRIENDS, I TRUST YOU ARE HAVING A GREAT WEEKEND! HERE IS A BOOK TO MAKE IT EVEN BETTER, KICK AT THE DARKNESS BY KEIRA ANDREWS IS A WONDERFUL READ THAT WILL TAKE YOU ON A WILD RIDE FROM COVER TO COVER!  I HAVE MY REVIEW, BUY LINKS, THE GOODREADS LINK, AND EVEN AN EXCERPT SO LET'S GET TO IT!




OH BOY DOES THIS APPLY TO THIS STORY!! HERE IS MY REVIEW:

                     Kick at the Darkness by: Keira Andrews
                                                                reviewed by: Becky


College freshman Parker Osborne is having the worst day ever. He humiliated himself trying to pick up a cute guy, he hasn’t made any friends at school, and his stupidly hot jerk of a TA gave him a crappy grade on his paper. He’s going to drop Adam Hawkins’ film class and start fresh tomorrow after he’s had a good sulk.

But Parker’s about to find out what a bad day really looks like—if he can survive the night.

A virus is unleashed, transforming infected people into zombie-like killers. After these quick and deadly creepers swarm campus, Parker only escapes thanks to Adam swooping him onto the back of his trusty motorcycle. Now they're on the run—and stuck with each other.

When they’re not bickering, they’re fighting off the infected in a bloody battle for survival. Their only hope is to head east to Parker's family, but orphaned Adam has a secret he’s not sure Parker will accept: he’s a werewolf. Can they trust each other enough to find some light in these dark days?

                                       


Holy crap and wow are the words that come to mind when I think about this book! How inventive is this story! I can promise you have never read an apocalypse story like this one, and what about that cover? Holy lots of chocolate that is hot!!!! 

I love Parker, bless his little heart, as soon as I met him when he was freaking about his grade I loved him! When he goes to the teachers aide to complain about his grade, he finds a whole lot of sexy in the form of teachers aide Adam!

Though the two don't exactly get along at first, I love their chemistry, and when the infected people hit the fan, Adam saves Parker and they become a sort of team. I won't spoil the story but I will say that through all they have to deal with, Parker and Adam become a source of comfort and strength for each other, and boy is the sex off the scorch-o-meter! 

Will Parker still want Adam when he finds out his secret? Come along for this wonderful ride as these two make sense of each other and the crumbling world around them! 

You so have to read this one friends, it is inventive and refreshing, and you will be glued to the pages cover to cover like I was. Thank you Keira, for a breath of fresh air in the form of a kick ass story!


                                                              the 5 C- rating :)

YOU GOTTA GRAB THIS ONE FRIENDS, NOW FOR A LITTLE EXCERPT:

Parker sighed. Ugh, he had to go deal with this bullshit grade. His throat was scratchy, and he guzzled a bottle of water on his way to the building nearby where the TA for the movie class had his office. With every step, the failure seemed to seep into him another inch, and with it mortification and a growing resentment. It wasn’t fair. He had math and statistics pre-reqs for his economics major to worry about—this dumb elective wasn’t supposed to be actual work. 
I suck. I should have worked harder. What will Dad say if he finds out?   
He climbed up to the office level at the top of the four-story building and scanned the nameplates beside each door. His sneakers squeaked on the floor, and it felt preternaturally quiet. At the end of the hall, Parker found the name he was looking for, written on a piece of folded paper and fitted into the nameplate slot. 
Adam Hawkins: Film and Media Studies
Parker scoffed to himself. Film and Media Studies. It wasn’t like it was a real academic discipline. This Adam Hawkins was likely a pretentious douchebag who wore black turtlenecks and horn-rimmed glasses. He probably drank tea and had a minor in existential philosophy. He—
The door opened. “Oh, hello. Can I help you?”
His throat gone completely dry, Parker could only croak. “Uh…”
Adam Hawkins did not wear horn-rimmed glasses. 
The jury was still out on whether he had turtlenecks in his wardrobe, but at the moment he was wearing a black leather jacket over a light blue button-up and jeans. He was a few inches taller than Parker’s own five-nine, and the leather stretched over broad shoulders. His thick black hair cruffy, just the right length to make Parker wonder what it would feel like against his skin.
He watched Parker with hazel eyes that were strangely golden. “Did you need some help?”  
“I’m…” Parker tried to ignore the lust humming in his veins and get it together. “C-minus.” 
“You’re C-minus?” 
Cheeks hot, Parker grabbed the paper from his bag and held it up, refocusing on his anger. “That’s what you gave me on my assignment, and it’s not fair.” God, he was whining, and he should leave. Cut his losses. Man up. 
 

HAHA, THIS BOOK IS SO GREAT! THANKS FOR JOINING ME FOR MY REVIEW OF KICK AT THE DARKNESS!

THE SUMMER HOUSE RELEASE DAY REVIEW!!



HELLO FRIENDS, I AM SO EXCITED TO FINALLY BE ABLE TO BRING YOU THE RELEASE REVIEW OF THE SUMMER HOUSE, DO YOU KNOW HOW HARD IT IS NOT TO TALK ABOUT A BOOK THIS GOOD? ;P, I HAVE MY REVIEW, THE SALES LINK, A SHORT EXCERPT, AUTHOR BIO AND LINKS, AND A RAFFLECOPTER GIVEAWAY! HERE WE GO:




I LOVE THIS QUOTE, AND IT IS PERFECT FOR CONNOR! HERE IS MY REVIEW:


         The Summer House  ( English Hearts #1) by: Rj Scott
                                                                reviewed by: Becky


Ashby Sebastian Sterling-Haynes has had a lot of boyfriends, but he's never found the one.

The only person he can form an attachment to is his fourteen year old niece, and even that is in jeopardy when babysitting her cat goes all kinds of wrong.

Veterinarian, Connor Lawson is much happier working with animals than with people. He has deliberately returned home and to the Summer House he recalled from childhood holidays for peace and quiet and the chance to heal from wounds no one would ever see.

When his next door neighbor comes into the practice with a cat that has been in a fight he hides in his office because this Ashby guy is all kinds of dangerous. Too hot, too rich, too titled, and way too sexy for his own good.

Can two men who refuse to believe in love ever learn that love is the easy part of the journey to forever?




I am a huge fan of Rj Scott, and this book enforces the reason why! It takes a heck of an author to be able to pull you into more than one storyline in a book, yet still put the main focus on the main characters, and Rj does this brilliantly! 

I love Ash, poor thing he has no clue what is about to hit him! A notorious playboy, Ash is gobsmacked when his attraction to vet Connor is more than he has ever felt before. When he is entrusted with his beloved nieces cat and things go awry quite quickly, he has a chance to see Connor again.

Connor is pretty closed off to the world, and prefers the company of the animals he treats, and his best friend Rachel. There is a reason for this and because of that he has a hard time believe Ash is really sincere in his pursuit.

These two men have a lot to work on, but it will be worth it for them both! This book is wonderful, and I fell in love with it from the start. Though it is not without its heartbreaks, this is a story that was just aching to be told, and I am so glad Rj was the one to tell it! 

You will giggle and cry in this one friends, and don't we love that, running the gamut of emotions? You certainly will with this one friends, and like me you will be impatiently waiting for book 2 ;p! Thanks Rj, for a book 1 in a series that promises to be something special!

NOW FOR AN EXCERPT THAT WILL EXPLAIN THE TOMATO RATING ;P:

The drive out of the village was a slow one, caught as he was behind a tractor that appeared to be ambling all over the road avoiding bumps and dips and a trail of cars in its wake. Ash was content to follow at a distance, humming along to the Muse CD he’d found in the glovebox and inhaling the scent of fresh ripe summer tomatoes with each breath. Summer. He loved it.

 The tractor turned off just before Upper Fordham, passing the old school house and disappearing down a farm track, but Ash didn’t really speed after that. He had no one behind him and all the time in the world. Yes he had emails to answer, spreadsheets to check, and that godawful decision he’d made hanging over his head, but Tux was going to be okay. At least he could tell Stephanie everything was okay without bald-faced lying. And he’d had a kiss from a gorgeous, albeit reluctant, then shocked, man. He stopped to let someone cross the road from the post box to the bus stop, and they exchanged waves. He didn’t recognise the woman in the bright orange T but the wave was nice. She was probably from one of the rental cottages in the village. Rented by the week, at least four of the estate properties garnered income from people wanting a holiday in the Cotswolds.

 He parked outside the Davenport house, right opposite The Wychwood pub, and considered whether he should have actually gone home first to get a new shirt. The house was still decorated from the wedding, he recalled guests spilling from the pub into the house where Chloe’s parents lived. Was that before or after I had Connor basically implying I was a shallow arsehole? Picking up the box, he wandered around the side of the beautiful stone house and down the long drive to the workshops at the end. This was where Richard Davenport had his kitchenfitting business, alongside his wife who pickled and poached and wrapped everything up as Cotswold produce to sell in town. A regular village concern the two had going. He’d seen them at the wedding, but before that Ash hadn’t been back to the estate in over a year. It would be good to catch up.

 “Ash!” Mary swept him up in a fragrant hug and held him as close as she could with him carrying the box of tomatoes. “What are you doing here?” “Mick asked me to bring up these to you.” He handed her the box and watched her face light up. She inhaled the scent of them and grinned in delight. 

SEE I HAD A REASON FOR THE TOMATO'S (WHICH NOW I WANT, GREAT ;P)
HERE IS SOME INFO ON RJ AND HER LINKS:

RJ Scott has been writing since age six, when she was made to stay in at lunchtime for an infraction involving cookies. She was told to write a story and two sides of paper about a trapped princess later, a lover of writing was born.

As an avid reader herself, she can be found reading anything from thrillers to sci-fi to horror. However, her first real true love will always be the world of romance where she takes cowboys, bodyguards, firemen and billionaires (to name a few) and writes dramatic and romantic stories of love and passion between these men.

With over seventy titles to her name and counting, she is the author of the award winning book, The Christmas Throwaway. She is also known for the Texas series charting the lives of Riley and Jack, and the Sanctuary series following the work of the Sanctuary Foundation and the people it protects.

Her goal is to write stories with a heart of romance, a troubled road to reach happiness, and most importantly, that hint of a happily ever after.

Sam Chancellor has been in love with the steam engine Old Bess since he was six years old. Well, maybe not literally, but even when he’s lost everything else in his life, he’s always had her. But now her place in his heart has been unexpectedly challenged. Her new driver, Ryan Saunders, is the embodiment of all Sam’s fantasies.

Ryan has written off Sam as just another geeky trainspotter—until the moment Ryan sees him without his usual shapeless hoodie, and realizes that for a nerd, Sam’s pretty built.

When Ryan overlooks Sam’s awkwardness long enough to suggest a hook-up, Sam seizes the opportunity—and Ryan—with both very eager hands. Finding common ground in their shared love of Bess, their time together is better than Sam ever dared dream.

But there’s a reason Ryan never talks about his past. And when Ryan's job is threatened, Sam’s well-meaning intervention puts both Ryan and Bess in deadly danger.




I love a book that teaches me about a subject that I am not very familiar with, while making it entertaining and part of a great story! This book does just that while not once making me feel like I am having a lesson, and I love that!

Sam has been watching the Steam Engine Old Bess for years, and now he gets to watch her hot new driver too! Sam is used to being seen as a nerd, and just that guy obsessed with Bess, but with Ryan he wants to be something more. 

Ryan never paid much attention to Sam, that is until he saw him beneath the bulky hoodie he always wore! When Sam and Ryan get closer it is apparent Ryan is more that what he is saying, but that doesn't bother Sam a bit! The only thing Ryan has an issue with is Sam's choice of "house pet", but more about that later ;p! 

When Ryan is threatened with losing his job, he and Sam must get used to the fact that Ryan won't be driving Old Bess for too much longer, or do they? This is a wonderful read, full of surprises and never boring!

Grab this book friends, you will be glad you did! Thanks Joy, for a book that became a very enjoyable lesson about trains, and about love as well!

TRUST ME FRIENDS, YOU GOTTA HAVE THIS BOOK!! HERE IS AN EXCERPT:

“You’re kind of built for a nerd, aren’t you?” Ryan said. “I guess trainspotting’s a more active hobby than I’d thought.”

Sam should have walked away because this guy was insufferable. Except there was humour gleaming in those eyes as well as something else. Something that if he wasn’t entirely losing his mind was actual, sexual interest.

In him, Sam Chancellor.

“It’s all that running alongside the engines to get the numbers down,” he blurted out before he could stop himself.

To his amazement, Ryan laughed. A true laugh that caused his eyes to crinkle at the corners. It made him even more gorgeous than he already was.

“Ryan Saunders,” he said. “I drive old Bessie.”

“Bessie?” Sam was horrified at the heresy. “She’s Bess. She’s always been Bess.”

“Given I’m the one whose hands have been over every inch of her, I guess she’s allowing me intimacies the general public doesn’t get,” Ryan said.

The low seductive voice and the thought of Ryan’s hands stroking over him the way they did over Bess meant Sam was getting hard. He clutched his satchel in front of him like some sort of shield, except that wasn’t helping at all because it was pressed against his dick and, God above, he was about to get a hard-on, here and now, right in front of Ryan Saunders.

“You haven’t told me your name,” Ryan said.

“Sam,” he choked out. “Sam Chancellor, and I have to go.”

He put his head down and fled.
