Christmas Serendipity: In a snowy small town in England just before the festive season, refugees of bad luck Christian and David find themselves thrown together at a friend’s non-family Christmas. Both men realize this may be just what they need, when they need it.

Serendipity Develops: David and Christian met a few weeks ago, and were thrown together last Christmas through a mixture of luck and fate. They felt an instant spark for one another, but now neither want to rush into bed until they're ready. David thinks he is, but Christian's emotions are all over the place. A stay in hospital makes David wonder if their relationship too much for him to cope with.

The Next Christmas:
In a snowy small town in England, just before Christmas, garage mechanic David and office worker Christian are preparing to spend the festive period with Christian's parents. The parents who told Christian last year he wasn't welcome to their family festive celebrations since he told them he was gay. The parents welcome show the men to separate bedrooms. Will their love overcome prejudice?





THIS QUOTE IS PERFECT TO THESE THREE BOOKS! I AM GONNA DO A COMBINED REVIEW OF ALL THREE BOOKS BECAUSE YOU JUST HAVE TO READ THEM ALL!! :)

Christian and David like each other, a lot, but with ex boyfriends, and other things in the mix are they meant to be? Book 1 is amazing and gives you the lay of the land on this couple and what is to come! 

Book 2 deals with the fact that these two men feel connected but have decided to wait to be intimate, will they feel that this relationship is too much trouble? Or will they wonder what they have been waiting for? 

Book 3 is my fave of this series as it ties up loose ends so to speak, we get to see the guys at Christian's family's house, and though there are awkward moments, David just may prove he is in it for the long haul! You guys must read this whole series, it is amazing!!


                                                     the 5 fuzzy bear rating for this series!!

THE CLOSET BOY RELEASE DAY REVIEW!!


HEY GUYS, MY GIRL AMY IS HERE TO REVIEW THE CLOSET BOY: IRON EAGLE GYM 4 BY SEAN MICHAEL ON RELEASE DAY! I READ THIS BOOK TOO AND I LOVED IT! LET'S SEE WHAT AMY THINKS AS WE TAKE A LOOK AT HER REVIEW ALONG WITH THE LINK AND AN EXCERPT! 




THIS QUOTE IS PERFECT FOR WAY'RA, HERE IS AMY'S REVIEW: 

The Closet Boy
Iron Eagle Gym 4 
by: Sean Michael
reviewed by: Amy

Way’ra Bernard is only twenty years old when his parents kick him out of the house. He has been brought up to believe being gay is wrong and he is going to go to hell for it. He tried very hard not to be gay but couldn’t change the way he felt. Now he’s living furtively in a closet on the third floor of the place he’s working as a janitor—the Iron Eagle Gym.
Neal McPherson is an unattached Dom in his midtwenties and a member of the gym. One evening after working out, he notices Way’ra on the stairs and he’s immediately attracted and intrigued, so he asks Way’ra out. Unable to come up with a reason to refuse and also interested in Neal, Way’ra accepts.
There are a lot of obstacles to the relationship they attempt to build after their date, not least of which is Way’ra’s upbringing and his lingering doubts about the kinky sex Neal enjoys. But with patience and persistence, Neal might convince Way’ra not only to accept himself, but to loosen his inhibitions enough to explore and find a happy ending together.



I haven't read many of Sean Michael's books so I wasn't really sure what to expect.  The Closet Boy was full of wonder, excitement, scary and loving times.   Way'ra Bernard works as a janitor in a local gym, not your ordinary gym, but a gym customized for the BDSM lifestyle.  It has been drilled into Way's head that LGBT lifestyle is wrong!  Thrown out by his parents, his school and friends, he's left to fend for himself. 

Neal McPherson works out at the gym on a regular basis.  He meets Way and instantly feels a connection.  After much coaxing, Way meets him for coffee.   Neal instantly feels the need to take care of Way, wanting to feed and nurture him.  

This story takes you through Way literally coming out of the closet and learning how to love, be loved and let go.   Author Sean Michaels takes you on a journey of self discovery for Way with Neal as his patient and loving partner.   This couple is hot, like scorching, burning down that closet door hot!! Don't miss out on this great read!  



I give this book 5 closet doors, all open for love! 

I LOVE THIS REVIEW! THANKS AMY! BELOW IS THE LINK AND AN EXCERPT: YOU GOTTA PICK THIS ONE UP TODAY! 


EXCERPT: 

GOD, HE was tired.
Way’ra finished his shift with the broom and waved to Dalton, the nice night manager sitting at the counter at the front of the Iron Eagle Gym. “Bye, man. I’m going to check the bathrooms, and then I’ll be out of your hair.”
“Have a good night, Way. Don’t party too hard.”
Right. Because he remembered parties. The last four months had been the longest of his young life. He’d been outed, thrown out of his conservative religious college and out of his house without anything more than the clothes on his back and his wallet.
No phone. No laptop. No cash. No shoes. He’d managed to pull two hundred dollars from the ATM before his dad froze the account.
Still, he’d done it, hadn’t he? He had a job cleaning here at the Eagle, and in a month he’d have enough saved to rent a room. All he had to do was wait it out.
Well, wait it out and pray that no one noticed that someone was sleeping in one of the third-floor broom closets. So far he’d been doing it for a few months and no one was the wiser. He’d tried staying in the park, but between the snow and the cold, it had been so nasty. He’d been hoping spring would be different, but there’d been so much rain. He only had the one pair of jeans; he couldn’t show up to work with them wet.
When he’d discovered the tiny broom closet with a layer of dust on the floor, it had felt like magic, like it was meant to be. He wasn’t hurting anything. No one was staying there, and he was super careful to sneak out before one of the day managers saw him in the morning, grab his one meal of coffee and a doughnut, and hang out for a couple of hours before he showed back up to work.
He was headed up the back stairs, quiet as a mouse, when a gorgeous stud suddenly appeared at his side. The guy was tall, close to a foot bigger than him, and with the best muscles. He was wearing a pair of sweats and a T-shirt, gym bag slung over one shoulder.
“Headed up too?” Even the guy’s voice was studly—deep and growly.
“Uh. Uh-huh. Just checking supplies.” He kept his head down, his gaze forward. This man was twice his size, easily, and he wasn’t interested in a confrontation.
“Oh right, you work here. I thought I recognized you. Do you like it?” The guy was taking the stairs two at a time, but doing it slowly enough that they stayed level.
“Yes, sir. It’s a good job.” No one asked questions. No one bothered him. No one noticed him. He didn’t exist, and that was just like he wanted it.
“Good, good. This is a good place. It’s nice to know everyone is family.” It looked like this guy was going all the way up, just like he was.
“Yes, sir.” Dammit. He needed to slip into his closet. He had a dog-eared paperback he’d found in the lost-and-found and a cold Coke.
“Do you work out here too?”
God, this guy was Chatty McChatterson.
“No, sir.” Did he look like he worked out? Ever?
“You look like you could use a few sessions. Oh fuck, that was rude, I’m sorry.”
“No worries. I’ll mop harder tomorrow. Have a good evening.” Go away.
The guy gave him a sharp look. “I didn’t say I thought you were doing a bad job.”
“Yes, sir. I’m sorry. I left my… cleanser. I mean, my pad downstairs. Excuse me.”
The guy stopped and put a hand on his arm. “I’ve upset you now. I didn’t mean to. How about I buy you a cup of coffee by way of an apology?”
“Me? I’m the janitor. You don’t have to apologize.”
“I don’t believe in classes. In fact, without you, my enjoyment here at the gym would be so much less.”
The words were dear and made his cheeks heat. “Thank you. I appreciate it. Honestly.”
“Then let me buy you a coffee. There’s a shop around the corner that’s still open. You’ll be saving me from a lonely evening too.” The guy took his bag off his shoulder. “I’m stuck here for the night. They found asbestos in our building, and we’ve all been kicked out.”
“Oh no. I’m so sorry. Someone’s letting you spend the night here? That’s very cool.”
“That’s what the bunks upstairs are for. Anyone who needs the space.” The guy shouldered his bag again. “You wanna meet down at the main doors in, say, a half hour? Does that work for you?”
“I suppose so. Yes. Thank you.” He could use a cup of coffee, one with lots of sugar and cream.
The guy looked pleased. “Perfect.” Then he held out his hand. “I’m Neal.”
“I’m Way’ra.”
“Way-ra?”
“Yes. It’s tribal. Just call me Way.”
Neal shouldered open the door from the hall and leaned against it. “I like it. What does it mean?”
“A gust of wind.”
Neal looked him over and grinned. “You look like a good gust of wind would knock you right over.”
“You’re not the first person to say that to me.”
“And here I thought I was being all original and suave.” Neal chuckled. “I look forward to our coffee and doing a better job of it.”
“Yes, sir. Thanks for the invitation.” He headed back downstairs, not sure whether to hide out in one of the bathrooms for a little while or what.
He couldn’t believe he was seriously considering this, having coffee with a perfect stranger. More than that—a stranger from the gym.
Neal had been kind, though. Nice. With warm eyes. Plus the guy was hot.
Stop it, Way. You’re a skinny homeless idiot with absolutely no future. You don’t get to date hot guys.
He was going to get the coffee, though. Because it would be stupid to turn down anything free. He would have to keep reminding himself that it wasn’t a date.
It was a free cup of coffee with a whole lot of sugar.

COUNTDOWN TO THE HOLIDAYS DAY 19: MERRY CHRISTMAS MR. MIGGLES


HEY GUYS, IT IS DAY 19 OF OUR COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS BOOK REVIEW EVENT AND I HAVE MY RELEASE DAY REVIEW OF MERRY CHRISTMAS MR. MIGGLES BY ELI EASTON!! THIS BOOK IS AWESOME! LOOK BELOW FOR MY REVIEW AND THE BUY LINK :)



THIS IS THE BEST QUOTE FOR THIS BOOK FOR SURE! HERE IS MY REVIEW!!

Merry Christmas Mr. Miggles
by: Eli Easton
reviewed by: Becky

Toby Kincaid loves being the junior librarian in his hometown of Sandy Lake, Ohio. He spends his days surrounded by books and chatting with the library patrons. He especially adores the head librarian, Mr. Miggles, who is kind, witty, knowledgeable about everything, and hopelessly addicted to Christmas. Sean Miggles is also pretty cute—especially for an older guy who wears ties and suit pants every day. 

But Sean keeps himself at a distance, and there’s a sadness about him that Toby can’t figure out. When Sean is accused of a crime he didn’t commit, he gives up without a fight. Toby realizes that he alone can save the library—and their head librarian. 

Toby will need to uncover the darkness in Sean’s past and prove to him that he deserves a second chance at life and at love too. And while Christmas miracles are being handed out, maybe Toby will get his own dearest wish—to love and be loved by Mr. Miggles. 





Toby has a good job at the library, a great boss and family and even a hot boyfriend, what more could he want? Thing is, he has been out of sorts lately.


Toby has been thinking more and more about how things in his life are turning out and he is less than satisfied, and when his boss Mr. Miggles gets accused of a horrible crime there is no way he committed, Toby begins to see the light. 

Can he figure out his life and a way to help Mr. Miggles so that they both can get what they want for Christmas? When Toby finds out what makes Mr. Miggles look so sad all the time will it push him away or make him more determined than ever to be with the librarian? 

This is an amazing Christmas story, and you will love every single minute of it just like I did! Thanks Eli, for giving us a story we will want to reread long after the Holidays are over!!

STAYING HOME RELEASE DAY REVIEW!!


HEY GUYS, IT'S RELEASE DAY FOR ALEXA MILNE AND BOOK THREE IN HER: THE CALL OF HOME SERIES: STAYING HOME! LOOK BELOW FOR MY REVIEW AND LINKS FOR THIS ONE! LET'S GET STARTED!!


THIS QUOTE IS PERFECT FOR THIS STORY! HERE IS MY REVIEW!!

Staying Home
The Call of Home 3
by: Alexa Milne
reviewed by: Becky

You can never escape yourself.

It has been a year since the death of Brodie ‘Tosh’ Mackintosh’s husband, Harry. Unable to face all the memories of their life together, he moves into the house of his best friend, Darach McNaughton, and is comforted by the local Church of Scotland minister, Sam Carmichael, the middle of the five Carmichael brothers.

Sam Carmichael has always been a bit different from his siblings. He’s the only blond in a family of redheads, and the only one with religious beliefs. He also has more than one secret.

Can these two men overcome the events of their pasts and find truth and comfort with each other? And, when all their secrets are revealed, will they be forced apart or be able to plan on staying home together?




I love Alexa Milne's writing, the feeling and emotion she puts into every word just jumps off the page! This book is amazing, and you will love it just as much as I do! 

Tosh lost his husband a year ago, so when he grabs the attention of hunky local Minister Sam he isn't ready, is he? 

Sam has always been different than his family, and not just because he is gay, which isn't known by many because he is a minister. When he may have a chance with Tosh, will he swing the closet door open, or will the risks be too great? 

This couple has a long road lined with secrets, can love prevail? I can't wait for you guys to read this one! Thanks Alexa, for a book 3 of a series I loved as much as the others!

Jules Madigan loves his family and he loves his job. The only thing he’s missing out on is a Happy Ever After, like the ones written by his favourite romance author Ewan Byge. While he’s waiting for that HEA, Jules indulges himself in buying Ewan’s old typewriter as memorabilia – before realising he’s been defrauded. Through the fraud case, he makes friends with Police Constable Leonard Edgar – and through Leonard, Jules even gets to meet and work with Ewan Byge Himself! But the course of True Love never did run smooth, and soon Jules has to face some harsh realities.

BOY IS THIS THE PERFECT QUOTE FOR THIS BOOK! LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT MY REVIEW: 

Jules captured my heart on page 1 of this book, what with his swinging hips and artfully styled ginger hair, how could one not fall in love? 

Jules gets defrauded when he buys a typewriter he thinks is his favorite authors, but it turns out to be a sham. When Jules gets in touch with the police, he meets Police Constable Leonard and they become friends. 

When Jules meets his favorite author Ewan, he is over the moon, but is Ewan to good to be true? Should Jules be looking in the direction of the steady, reliable and oh so sweet Constable instead? 

You will fall in love with this book just like I did, it is a great read! Thanks Julie, for a great story and for Jules, who strutted straight into my heart!

COUNTDOWN TO THE HOLIDAYS DAY 18: ALONE FOR CHRISTMAS RELEASE DAY REVIEW!!


HEY GUYS, IT IS DAY 18 OF OUR COUNTDOWN TO THE HOLIDAYS BOOK REVIEW EVENT, AND TODAY AMY IS DOING THE RELEASE DAY REVIEW OF ASHLEY JOHN'S CHRISTMAS BOOK ALONE FOR CHRISTMAS! I CAN'T WAIT TO READ IT AND FOR AMY'S REVIEW! LET'S GET TO IT!



BOY IS THIS QUOTE TRUE! HERE IS AMY'S REVIEW: 

Alone For Christmas
by: Ashley John
reviewed by: Amy

With his third divorce looming and his bank accounts frozen, Chip Harington was surprisingly okay with spending Christmas alone, even if he was living out of a suitcase in his office. He had already decided to skip the office Christmas party, until some surprising words from one of his employees makes him change his mind.

Noah always expected the crush for his boss to fade, but after two years working under Chip, his feelings are stronger than ever. With Chip’s personal life in tatters once more, Noah never expected his boss to show his face at the office Christmas party, so he was even more surprised when his drunken attempt to kiss Chip turned into so much more.

Chip assumed his encounter with Noah was nothing more than a one-night stand, but when his employee emerges from a snowstorm on Christmas Eve, they are forced to spend Christmas together in a London office block. With the lines between employer and employee blurred, will either man emerge from the snow the same, or will their Christmas encounter change the course of their lives forever, making them wish they had spent Christmas alone after all?





Let me start by saying Ashley John is one of my absolute favorite authors, he writes such great stories, whether it's a series, a standalone or novella, he's an automatic buy for me.  Alone For Christmas is another fantastic book!!  

Chip Harington runs the publishing company after his Dad passed away.  He's now getting divorce for the third time.  Can he finally live his life as a gay man or is he too scared to do so?  

Noah Anderson is alone in the world, his Granddad passed away last year which has left Noah with no family.   He plans to spend the holidays at home watching movies.   Noah works at Harington Publishing and has had a crush on his boss since the day he was hired but Chip is straight, right?

This short Christmas story has a lot packed into it.   At the office Christmas party Noah and Chip get thrown together after Noah bangs his head.  In a moment of crazy for Noah he leans forward and kisses Chip.  Blaming it on the alcohol from the party, he has Chip's driver take him home.  Once there Noah ask Chip if he wants to stay for coffee, declining the offer Noah heads to his building alone.  But when Chip changes his mind and stays, what happens rocks Noah's world.

Nobody should be alone for Christmas and though Noah is use to being alone, he doesn't want Chip to be. Knowing Chip is sleeping in his office, his assets being frozen while going through a divorce, Noah walks through the deep snow to make sure Chip is okay.   Spending Christmas together, laughing, talking and enjoying their time alone, Noah knows he's falling head over heels but does Chip feel the same?  When the snow clears and the holiday ends, will their time together end too? 

You must read this sweet, funny, hot Christmas story.  Chip and Noah will have you smiling.  




I give this book 5 mistletoes, a kiss started it all!!  

GREAT JOB AMY, AS ALWAYS! I REALLY CAN'T WAIT TO READ THIS NOW!! BELOW IS THE LINK, GRAB IT IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY!


THANKS FOR JOINING ME FOR DAY 18, AND THANKS AGAIN AMY FOR SUCH A TERRIFIC REVIEW! SEE YOU GUYS TOMORROW FOR DAY 19!



HOW TO DEAL AUDIOBOOK BLOG TOUR STOP AND REVIEW!!




Welcome to the How to Deal Audiobook tour, hosted by TTC Books and more.


How to Deal is the 3rd book in the All Cocks Stories and is now available in Audiobook format in addition to E-book and Print




Jon Brennan comes from a long line of men in uniform; all born and bred to both bleed and wear blue. His family and the majority of his co-workers support him every step of the way, so he doesn't need to hide the fact that he prefers men over women. Between the job and his larger than life, loud and rowdy half Irish, half Italian family, there isn't much time for dating, much less finding a guy who can deal with the stress and demands placed on the shoulders of an NYPD detective.
Kory White is cocky and abrasive with most people, but it is all a facade he hides behind to keep his heart safe. As a child, Kory lost his mother to an act of violence. Soon after, he and his baby sister Kassandra were separated by the system. Kassandra was immediately adopted, but Kory spent the next 10 years cycling through foster homes before moving to the Big Apple. In an effort to keep everyone at a distance, Kory has meticulously built himself an alter ego: Hayden Cox, All Cocks cockiest model.
These two strong-willed men definitely prove opposites do attract. Both are stubborn and hard headed to a fault, Kory more so than Jon. But Jon is used to being in control, the one calling the shots, and Kory fights him at every turn. Just when it seems they have found a way to navigate the unchartered territory that is love, tragedy knocks on Kory's door yet again. Volatile and strong, even in the face of adversity, both men refuse to give up on each other - or their love.

HEY GUYS, BELOW IS MY GIRL GRACE'S AUDIOBOOK REVIEW: LET'S TAKE A LOOK!

:
While Kory and Jon’s story is my second favorite of the group, it is the hardest of the series for me read.  Kory is sarcastic, abrasive and in constant pain from his past.  In this book, we learn what shaped him into the man he is and how his toxicity is a shield to keep from getting hurt again.
Jon is a good compliment for Kory; stable, nice and hard headed.  His refusal to let Kory push him away, no matter what, is as endearing as it is amazing, considering just how bad Kory’s demons can be.  
Between Kory’s past, and his struggles to deal with it, and the violent atrocity that changed the All Cock’s family forever, this is the one book that I hadn’t re-read.  I knew listening to the audio would be difficult, for those reasons.  What I didn’t expect was for Joel Leslie to cause me to fall in love with this story all over again, enough so that I’ve listened to it 3 times since receiving it.  
The narration is nothing short of amazing with the mix of accents and voices.  I knew before I pressed play that tears would be involved but I had no idea that hearing the story brought to life with these voices would pull from me so much more emotion.  While I do love audiobooks, normally the emotions I feel while listening are on par with those from reading the story.  In this case, I felt the nuances that I’d missed because I couldn’t hear them in my head (I mean, I don’t know about you but I don’t know one Italian-Irish New Yorker that speaks English, Italian and Gaelic in the same sentence, let alone an entire family).  
The sexy scenes were scorchers and the emotional scenes raked me over the coals along with Jon, Kory, Gabe and the rest of the group.  And Joel brought Gran to life in a way that made her even more poignant and, well, hysterically crazy.  
This series continues to be one of my favorites with its wonderfully intense characters and storylines but having Joel Leslie give their voices new life adds a new tier and I encourage everyone to listen.  You definitely won’t regret it.  

This definitely gets the 5 Flavored Lube and Condoms rating.  Thank you Gran.

THANKS GRACE, AWESOME JOB AS ALWAYS! LET'S MEET THE NARRATOR, TAKE A LOOK AT THE SCHEDULE, AND MEET THE AUTHOR (SHE AND I HAPPEN TO HAVE THE SAME HOME TOWN :p)
