Cayuga Cougars 2
by: V.L. Locey
reviewed by: Becky

August Miles has the world on a string professionally. 

Augie, as his friends and teammates call the unassuming young goaltender, is on the fast track to the pros. The starting goalie for the Cayuga Cougars, he has a year or two in Cayuga to hone his skills and all his career dreams will have come true. Pity his personal life isn’t riding the same high. He’s the only one among his group of friends without that special someone to call his own. 

Until he meets Salvatore Castenada at a lakeside party. The attraction is white-hot and more than a little wonderfully overwhelming for the romantically inexperienced goalie. August quickly discovers that Sal is everything he’s dreamed of in a man: mature, settled, sinfully handsome, and filled with gentle humor. Sal is also HIV positive. 
Will Sal’s revelation about his status end this budding relationship before it can even begin? Or will the two men be able to handle the challenges life—and a championship run for the Cougars—throws at them?





Boy was I excited for Augie's book, and as always V.L. didn't disappoint! She got this couple right on every level, and of course I got to see my Vic plenty in this book, so I was a double happy camper! 

We got to know Augie in book one when he had a little crush on Mario, well it ended up that the dynamic between these two is more of a father son one, which is great until Augie falls for sweet Sal. 

Sal is older and more experienced than Augie for sure, but he also has HIV, which throws Augie for a loop, but he decides that Sal is worth the extra effort it takes to be careful. This decision doesn't sit well with some, can Augie have his man and his mentor? Or will he have to choose? 

This book is fantastic and the research that goes into the HIV part of the story is top notch, you can tell! I love this author and if you read this book you will see why!

Fish Out of Water: Book Two

They must work together to stop a psychopath—and save each other.

Two months ago Jackson Rivers got shot while trying to save Ellery Cramer’s life. Not only is Jackson still suffering from his wounds, the triggerman remains at large—and the body count is mounting.

Jackson and Ellery have been trying to track down Tim Owens since Jackson got out of the hospital, but Owens’s time as a member of the department makes the DA reluctant to turn over any stones. When Owens starts going after people Jackson knows, Ellery’s instincts hit red alert. Hurt in a scuffle with drug-dealing squatters and trying damned hard not to grieve for a childhood spent in hell, Jackson is weak and vulnerable when Owens strikes.

Jackson gets away, but the fallout from the encounter might kill him. It’s not doing Ellery any favors either. When a police detective is abducted—and Jackson and Ellery hold the key to finding her—Ellery finds out exactly what he’s made of. He’s not the corporate shark who believes in winning at all costs; he’s the frightened lover trying to keep the man he cares for from self-destructing in his own valor.
Quote:

Review:
Still not fully healed from the earlier bust of crooked cops, Jackson and Ellery must chase after the one man that got away with little outside help.  That seems to be easier for Jackson than working his way into admitting he’s in a real relationship with Ellery.  
Throughout this story, Jackson battles with his inner demons, convinced he can never give Ellery what he deserves, can never be good enough for him.  And even with everything Jackson does, there was never a point when I wondered if he truly loved Ellery.  His past may have ingrained him a lack of trust in his ability to love but everything he did proved his capacity to love.  
Ellery gives all of himself to Jackson, over and over again.  His faith in their feelings, even knowing Jackson could walk out, and his patience (along with the hot and sexy times) keep Jackson unable to pull away.  But Ellery also learns how truly deep his feelings are when Jackson goes missing for hours.
The hunt for the killer, the lack of help from the cops and the utter failure of the city to back them up until it’s almost too late prove a fitting backdrop for Ellery and Jackson’s relationship as it grows and changes.  As they pull in and have their showdown with Owens, they both realize what they have and how easily it can be lost.  
I look forward to the next book in the series and seeing how this love grows and changes now that both men are fully committed to each other and their lives as they go after the man that let Owens loose on the civilian population.

The 4 Chicken Noodle Soup Rating, for comfort and care of the one you love.

Sparks fly when Chance meets tall, sexy Xav at a Wilmington bar and they have the hottest one-nighter of their lives. But Chance doesn't do repeats, Xav seems detached, and they go their separate ways without a word. Later, when closeted assistant district attorney C. Evan "Chance" Fairchild meets Dare's Landing's newest deputy sheriff, Xavier "Xav" Constantine, Evan isn't only wary. He's irritated as hell.
Xavier is a former FBI agent turned deputy sheriff who is hot on the trail of a South American child prostitution ring. Evan is fighting to put an end to rampant cocaine trafficking and chafing under the thumb of an election-hungry boss. When someone tries to kill the 11-year-old witness who holds the key to both their investigations, they're forced to work together as they put their lives on the line to protect him. As Chance and Xav collide in the heat of a sweltering North Carolina summer, dodging bullets and chasing bad guys isn't the only action going on.

Review:
After a harrowing undercover operation in human trafficking that doesn’t end well, Xav moves from FBI agent to rural deputy sheriff in a town which is seeing an upswing in missing boys.  As he starts investigating, he uncovers more questions than answers.  And one of the top ones is how to deal with the ADA he had a hot night with when he first came into town.  
Evan prides himself on keeping his personal and professional lives completely separate.  That falls apart when he is tasked to work with Xav, the one night stand he can’t stop thinking of.  As they dig deeper into the missing kids and their links to the drug imports in the town, Chance must deal with demons from his past he thought he’d locked down.  
As the two men get closer to finding out who their culprit is, their feelings for each other continue to get stronger.  When the human trafficking ring decides to clean up the loose ends, both Quinn, the 11-year-old boy they saved, and Chance end up squarely in the crosshairs.  Xav must work through his memories and fears to save them while Chance faces his demons to save some of the missing boys on his own.  
This is an intense and fast paced story with twists that made me clench my jaws and fists while listening.  Jim Pelletier brought this story to life and I enjoyed the layers his vocal talents brought to the characters.  Be prepared for tears, laughter, goosebumps and more as you listen to this one.  
NOTE-Trigger warning- this book is about human trafficking and child abuse of young boys.  While most of the abuse is in memories or discussed through investigation, be aware of this when preparing to read or listen.
Rating:

A 5 Coffee and Donuts Rating, in honor of all the men and women in blue who work so hard to keep our kids safe every day.

RUNNER REVIEW BY AMY!!


HEY GUYS, MY GIRL AMY IS HERE WITH HER REVIEW OF RUNNER BY PARKER WILLIAMS! I AM HALF WAY THROUGH THIS ONE AND I LOVE IT! HERE IS WHAT AMY HAS TO SAY ABOUT RUNNER: 



I LOVE THAT QUOTE! HERE IS AMY'S REVIEW: FOLLOWED BY A TEASER OF HER FAVE QUOTE FROM THE BOOK! 

Matt Bowers lived alone, away from people, on the outskirts of town, just the way he wanted it.   He had his routine, where things belonged until one day this guy goes running by, down the dirt road that really leads to nowhere.  Why is he out there?  Matt begged the Sheriff to make him stop, being Matt's brother, he told him the runner wasn't hurting anyone. 

Charlie Carver moved to town 2 years ago, he wrote books and worked in the library.  He stopped one day and said Hi to Matt, which causes Matt to panic. 

When Matt was in high school, a very serious and quite traumatic crime happened to him.  This causes him much distress, depression and the need for isolation.  So seeing Charlie caused him to panic, but Charlie persisted, and throughout the story you'll see the real Matt come back.  The Matt his family lost after the trauma. 

This story was amazing.  I had no idea what I was getting into reading this book, but let me say it is fantastic!! I loved the writing, the characters, the complexity that was Matt and Charlie's patience and love he has for Matt.  Make sure you read this incredible story!  


 I give this story 5 incredible Christmas Tree Stars!   The ending is beautiful, a definite must read!

TIED UP IN KNOTS REVIEW!!


HEY THERE FRIENDS, BELOW IS MY REVIEW OF TIED UP IN KNOTS, THE THIRD BOOK IN THE MARSHALS SERIES BY MARY CALMES! I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS SERIES SO LET'S TAKE A LOOK! 



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


Tied Up In Knots
Marshals 3 
by: Mary Calmes
reviewed by: Becky


Miro Jones is living the life: he’s got his exciting, fulfilling job as a US deputy marshal, his gorgeous Greystone in suburban Chicago, his beloved adopted family, and most importantly, the man who captured his heart, Ian Doyle. Problem is, Ian isn’t just his partner at work—Ian’s a soldier through and through. That commitment takes him away from Miro, unexpectedly and often, and it’s casting a shadow over what could be everything Miro could ever dream of.
Work isn’t the same without Ian. Home isn’t the same, either, and Miro’s having to face his fears alone… how to keep it together at the office, how to survive looming threats from the past, and worst of all, how to keep living without Ian’s rock-solid presence at his side. His life is tied up in knots, but what if unknotting them requires something more permanent? What would that mean for him and Ian? Miro’s stuck between two bad choices, and sometimes the only way to get out of the knot is to hold tight to your lifeline and pull.


Ian and Miro have worked for their happiness and if anyone deserves it, it's them! There are few things Miro loves more than being home with Ian and their dog, but few things he loves less than Ian being called away for service. Miro never knows where he goes and when he will be back and that is wearing on him. 

When the past rears its ugly head once again will Miro be able to hold it together? Will he know who to trust and what if he trusts the wrong people? Will he make it out alive this time? 

This book is amazing, just like the rest of this series, and you will devour it just like I did!

FIT TO BE TIED REVIEW!!


HEY GUYS, HERE IS MY REVIEW OF FIT TO BE TIED, MARSHALS BOOK 2 BY MARY CALMES! MAN DO I LOVE THIS SERIES, I LOVE IT SO MUCH I AM DOING A COMMENT TO WIN GIVEAWAY FOR A COPY OF THE BOOK OF YOUR CHOICE FROM THE SERIES! DETAILS BELOW!



THIS QUOTE SO FITS IAN AND MIRO! HERE IS MY REVIEW: 

Fit To Be Tied
Marshals Book 2
by: Mary Calmes
reviewed by: Becky

Deputy US Marshals Miro Jones and Ian Doyle are now partners on and off the job: Miro’s calm professionalism provides an ideal balance to Ian’s passion and quick temper. In a job where one misstep can be the difference between life and death, trust means everything. But every relationship has growing pains, and sometimes Miro stews about where he stands with his fiery lover. Could the heartstrings that so recently tied them together be in danger of unraveling?
Those new bonds are constantly challenged by family intrusions, well-intentioned friends, their personal insecurities, and their dangerous careers—including a trial by fire when an old case of Miro’s comes back to haunt them. It might just be enough to make Ian rethink his decision to let himself be tied down, and Miro can only hope the links they’ve forged will be strong enough to hold.


If book one of this series was great, book two was EPIC! I thought that I couldn't love Ian, Miro and the supporting cast more, but boy was I wrong! Fit To Be Tied is simply a book you can't miss! 
Miro and Ian are partners on and off the job and they are incredibly close and in love, but when Ian has to go in the field with the Green Berets Miro dies a little inside every time. He has to be kept in the dark about where Ian is and when he will be coming home. Can Ian understand what Miro goes through? Something may happen that will let him know how it feels first hand. 
These two go through so much and you will sweat it out every minute with them, because Mary Calmes writes you into the story she writes so believably! You are taken where the characters go because the book is just written that well! 
That said you better hold on because this book is so awesome it is a hell of a ride!

TEXTING, AUTOCORRECT AND A PRIUS REVIEW!!


HEY THERE GUYS, I HAVE MY REVIEW OF TEXTING, AUTOCORRECT AND A PRIUS BY M.A. CHURCH TODAY SO LET'S TAKE A LOOK! THIS IS A DELIGHTFUL READ AND I CAN'T WAIT TO TELL YOU ABOUT IT! 



THIS IS THE PERFECT QUOTE FOR THIS BOOK, HERE IS MY REVIEW: 

Texting, Autocorrect and a Prius
by: M.A. Church
reviewed by: Becky

Clay McDonald finds the perfect car on Craigslist and is quick to send the seller a text:
Is your penis still for sale?
AutoCorrect strikes again. Damn—he should’ve proofread. How embarrassing.
Luckily Darrell Anderson, a mechanic and the owner of the Prius, is more amused than offended, and the two men agree to meet. When they do, the attraction is instant, and a date is arranged. But a series of mishaps, misunderstandings, and misplaced assumptions sorely test the new relationship.
In a contemporary romantic comedy about the perils of technology and dating in the modern world, a text that went so wrong might just lead to something so right—but only if Clay can refrain from jumping to conclusions and give love the benefit of the doubt.



This book is just delightful, and I love these two men with a passion! Clay is in the market for a car to make his commute to work less expensive, but when he contacts the owner autocorrect apparently has a sense of humor at Clay's expense! 

Darrell, the owner of the car thinks the autocorrect fail is funny and the two find they have amazing and instant chemistry. Can these two guys make a go if it, or will old hurts cause them to second guess each other? 

If Darrell and Clay know what is good for them they will start living in the now and forget about the past, because they could blow a great thing! 

You guys will love this book that is a given! 

                                               the 5 cannonball rating :P

YEP, YOU KNOW IT, I JUST HAD TO DO THIS RATING! THE REASON WHY IS SO CUTE! BUY THE BOOK BELOW AND SEE WHAT IT IS!
