A NEW BEGINNING: A PRELUDE: THE PHOENIX CLUB A NEW GENERATION REVIEW

 


HELLO THERE FRIENDS, I AM BACK TODAY WITH MY REVIEW OF A NEW BEGINNING FROM THE PHOENIX CLUB A NEW GENERATION SERIES BY ONE OF THE BEST, CJ BISHOP! I LOVE THE ORIGINAL PHOENIX CLUB SERIES AND I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT AWAITS OUR FAVORITE MEN IN THIS SPIN-OFF! 



THIS IS THE PERFECT QUOTE FOR THIS STORY, I CAN'T WAIT UNTIL YOU FIND OUT WHY! BELOW IS MY REVIEW: 


A New Generation: Prelude

The Phoenix Club A New Generation

by: CJ Bishop

reviewed by: Becky


The Phoenix Club is more than a high-class gay strip club, but a place to call home for the lost, forsaken boys who find their way to the club’s door. And behind those doors—a loving, compassionate man ready to take them in and make them part of his ever-growing family.

Now, changes are coming to the Phoenix Club and the club boys are worried as Max reveals he has an important announcement to make. Are they about to lose their “home”… or is something new and exciting about to take place inside the walls of their beloved Phoenix?


 


Cue the : "I've been waiting for this one" soundbite because I totally have been waiting for the continuation of the stunning Phoenix Club series! Before I go any further, if you haven't read this series I urge you to clear a week off your calendar and tuck in :P, I will include the reading order of the Phoenix Club at the end of this post.

I am so in love with the way this author pulls you in and makes you love all of her characters so you get invested in the continuation of their story, which is exactly what this book and new series is. 

That doesn't mean you won't find new characters to fall in love with, because if I know this author, and I do, there are many boys just waiting for love, and I know one who will be getting a story soon! 

As in every story this author writes the sex is amazing because with these characters it is never just sex, it is always tied into love between our fave couples. I hope you read this book, because I have said all I can say without spoilers, just know this book is amazing and so is the series that precedes it! 

Thanks CJ for delivering just what I knew you would, a outstanding story worthy of the boys we have come to love! 


                           

                          I did the 5 starting line rating because it is so fitting!

FATE: A CALIFORNIA OBSCURA NOVEL

 


HELLO FRIENDS, I AM SUPER EXCITED TO BRING YOU MY REVIEW OF FATE BY ALEXA LAND, I HAVE LOVED ALEXA'S WORK FOR YEARS AND SHE IS SO TALENTED I KNOW I ALWAYS WILL, SO LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT I THOUGHT ABOUT FATE! 



BOY DOES THIS QUOTE WORK GREAT FOR THIS STORY! BELOW IS MY REVIEW! 

Fate
California Obscura
by: Alexa Land
reviewed by: Becky


Most people believe supernatural creatures are the stuff of myths and fairy tales.

They’re dead wrong.

How do I know? Because I’m part-werewolf. While I don’t have enough wolf in me to shift, the universe still saw fit to bind me for life to a fated mate—a domineering, remorseless criminal named Elias Reyes.

After spending the last century dodging him, Elias has finally tracked me down, and his timing couldn’t be worse. He’s managed to infuriate a pair of deadly demons, and they’re closing in fast.

Will we manage to set aside our differences and unite against his enemies? Or will one of us get caught in the crossfire when Elias’s past finally catches up to him?

This paranormal gay romance is part of Alexa Land’s California Obscura Series. Each book in the series can be read as a stand-alone or enjoyed in order.






I have been an Alexa fan since the beginning, and I am thrilled to be reviewing Fate as one of my first reviews in a while. Alexa can always be counted on to bring us something different, something I will always look forward to reading her books for! 

Mateo has a fated mate, much to his annoyance, and it seems he can't get around it. Elias is the mate and he has made some powerful enemies, and this causes some kind of trouble! 

I love this book because we see old friends from books past and we get action (in and out of the bedroom) that will leave you riveted to the story till the end.

Will the demons win and get Elias? Or will Mateo get a chance to have a future with his fated mate? You will be thrilled with this book, just like all of Alexa's others! 



I JUST HAD TO DO THE FIVE "PHONEY THE TIGER" RATING, (BE NICE IT IS MY FIRST CUSTOM CEREAL BOX :p) YOU WILL SEE WHY! BELOW ARE THE AMAZON BOOK LINK AND THE AMAZON LINK FOR THE CALIFORNIA OBSCURA SERIES SO GRAB EM ALL IF YOU HAVEN'T READ EM! 




THANKS FOR JOINING ME FOR MY REVIEW OF FATE, MAKE SURE TO CHECK OUT THIS BOOK AND SERIES! SEE YOU NEXT TIME! 




MATT: MORE THAN WORDS by HANS M. HIRSCHI review



 

HELLO FRIENDS, MY IT HAS BEEN  A WHILE BUT I AM BACK WITH MY REVIEW OF AN AMAZING BOOK THAT I SHOULD HAVE REVIEWED LONG AGO! BELOW IS MY REVIEW OF MATT: MORE THAN WORDS BY HANS M. HIRSCHI, WHO IN MY OPINION, HAS NEVER WRITTEN A CLUNKER! LET'S TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT MATT! 






I PICKED THIS QUOTE FOR THIS BOOK BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT COMPASSION HAS A HUGE PART TO PLAY IN THIS STORY, AND I WOULDN'T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY! BELOW IS MY REVIEW:


Imagine…

…being locked inside your own body, unable to move at will, unable to speak your mind.

Born prematurely and with complications at birth, twenty-three-year-old Matthew Walker is neurologically injured and diagnosed with severe cerebral palsy. Unable to speak or voluntarily move his limbs, Matt depends on around-the-clock care and has never said a word—most people, including his mother, assume he never will. Then one day, Timmy, a new assistant to Matt’s care team, is sitting at the breakfast table with Matt when he notices a couple of regular taps from Matt’s right big toe. Has Matt finally found a way to break out of his involuntary prison?

Matt–More Than Words is the story of a life without that which most of us take for granted: the ability to communicate. It is a story of suffering, abuse, loneliness, family, friendship, love, hope, and—finally—a green light, a future.



MATT: MORE THAN WORDS
by: HANS M. HIRSCHI
reviewed by: BECKY

If you know me at all you know that I review books that I believe in and love, and Matt is no exception. I will warn you, it will pull at your heartstrings and then some, and it is a hard read but so worth it! 

I am a caregiver at my day job so I felt this book in my heart, the struggles that Matt and his mother go through with Matt's severe handicap and Matt's mothers decision that has repercussions that boggle the mind and bruise the soul.

Hans writes in a way that makes you feel the story and I will be the first to tell you that though Matt is not a love story, but a survival story and a story of second chances, it is a story you will be glad you read, a story that will stay with you a while.

Matt is a fighter, and though he goes through unspeakable things and his handicap doesn't allow him to vocalize what is happening to him, Hans still gives him a voice, and this is why Matt captures your heart. I can't go into detail about the story but I can urge you to read it, sometimes we need more than a love story, sometimes we need a story of survival, and you will find just that with this one! 

Thank you Hans, for once again giving us more than a story we want, but a story we need.


I HAD TO GIVE THIS BOOK THE 5 COMPASSION RATING, YOU WILL SEE WHY! BELOW ARE THE BEATEN TRACK PUBLISHING AND AMAZON BUY LINKS, GRAB THIS BOOK TODAY! 



THANKS SO MUCH FOR JOINING ME FOR MY REVIEW OF MATT MORE THAN WORDS, SEE YOU NEXT TIME!

This series is just the right mix of romance, heartbreak, and comedy and it will knock your socks off! Book 1, Way Off Plan is below, please grab it or read it on KU, I promise you will be hooked just like I am! 





Grace: Stories From The Sound: TM Smith: 

I've been a fan of this series since I first found Gay for Pay, book 1 and fell in love with Linc and Chris.  Well, really, the whole group own my heart, in their own ways.  There are seven books in the series but as they are currently being rereleased with new content, book 1 is out now and book 2, Fame and Fortune is on preorder.  Every book is about a different couple/throuple but we get to see all of the guys in each one.  On top of having amazing characters and, of course, hot smexy times, each book brings its own story and plot lines.  I've reread and re-listened to these books multiple times and I don't see that stopping anytime soon.  I'm so excited for the new scenes in books I already love and can't wait to get them all and fall in love all over again.






Jess Kennedy: Thirds: Charlie Cochet:

I just don't know if I can put into words how much I love this series, but I can start with freaking mind blowing! Just the right mix of sass, humor, and oh so smexy times, this series just kept pulling me in more with every book! If you haven't read it, what the hell ya waiting for, do so right now!





Amy: Thomas Elkin Series: NR Walker

This series I have read multiple times, I love it that much!   Thomas Elkin is an architect very well known, divorced, one son, coming out as his true self.   Cooper is an upcoming architect, friend of Thomas’ son, who flirts, laughs, and has always thought this man was was gorgeous.  Age-gap is definitely my #1 trope. This book is really amazing, it’s hilarious banter between these guys, a little angsty dealing with family and friends, tearful but the love and comfort that comes from that event will give you all the feels, two guys who are different yet they “get” each other in ways no one else can.   You must read this series, it’s spectacular!! Tom&Coop forever ♥️ 




Jess Kurvers: The Hedonist Series: Rebecca James:


Meet the boys of the Hedonist series. Rough and tough MC club members that also work in the porn industry (yep... 😉) and the men that capture their hearts. These couples fight the good fight to find their way to happily ever after. This series hits it all, opposites attract, daddy/boy, mafia, guy for you, it is ALL THERE! Plus hot tattooed bikers and enough sass and humor to keep you laughing. (Although a few tissues might be required here or there!)
Everybody in the series was a 5 star for me!






THERE YOU HAVE EM GUYS, NOW CAST YOUR VOTE FOR YOUR FAVE, WHICH I KNOW WILL BE HARD BECAUSE ALL OF THESE SERIES ARE AWESOME! 

( you vote in the first box right below here)






VOTING WILL BE OPEN TILL MAY 4TH AND YOU CAN VOTE MULTIPLE TIMES, SO VOTE VOTE VOTE! I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHO WINS! 





BETTER RED RELEASE DAY REVIEW AND CHARACTER INTERVIEW!


HELLO FRIENDS, I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT TODAY'S POST! NOT ONLY DO I GET TO BRING YOU MY RELEASE DAY REVIEW OF BETTER RED: EVER AFTER NEW YORK SERIES 1 BY TARA LAIN, BUT I ALSO HAVE A CHARACTER INTERVIEW WITH RED, MARK AND A SPECIAL GUEST! YOU WON'T WANT TO MISS IT! LET'S GET TO IT! 



THIS QUOTE IS PERFECT FOR THIS STORY BECAUSE IT IS A LESSON RED HAS TO LEARN THE HARD WAY! NOW LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT MY REVIEW: 


Better Red
Ever After New York Series 1
by: Tara Lain
reviewed by: Becky

Who’s afraid of the big, bad Wolfe?

Red Ridley knows he could have a happy life in Ever After, New York, waiting on tables at Mom and Pop’s, making numbers add up for clients, studying business at the junior college – and maybe, just maybe having the man of his dreams, Mark Woods, the young owner of the local garage. One problem. Red’s gorgeous. Amazing looking. Totally unique. And no one who sees him – especially his grandmother, who’s his biggest promoter -- believes he won’t end up on the cover of a magazine. Gran’s dreams come true when famous New York agency owner, Brock Wolfe, shows up in Ever After and sets his sights on Red.
Red doesn’t want to leave Mark, but Gran has given everything to raise him, and the money he could make would give her a happy, easy life. Then, the news gets worse – Gran could lose her house -- so Red breaks down and goes to New York where the Wolfe shows just how bad he can be. Faced with a fate worse than death, Red needs a hero or needs to be one. Is there any chance to live happily in Ever After?





I really enjoyed this book, as I knew I would because I love this author! Red is a very endearing character, as is Mark, the Car Repair shop owner Red has been crushing on in secret. Red lives with his Gran, who is a  Granny with a blog, and only wants the best for Red, though sometimes her desire for a better life for him puts Red in an uncomfortable place.

Red loves his life in Ever After, and he loves his diner job, but money problems threaten him and Gran so Red makes a choice to go to the big city and model. Red has many challenges, most of them to do with Brock Wolfe, and he loses sight of who he can and can't trust. 

Will Red be able to get out of the clutches of Brock and the big city? Will he ever get his hearts desire, which is Mark? Read this book and find out! I loved this story and I know you will too!


                                    I give this story the 5 house key rating: you will see why ;)

AMAZON LINK

NOW FOR THE PART I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR! HERE IS A CHARACTER INTERVIEW WITH RED AND MARK, WITH A QUESTION ANSWERED BY A SPECIAL GUEST! 

  1. Red, you are as "pretty" as described in your story, does that ever color the way people interact with you? Is it hard for them to see the real you? 
“Oh, totally. I’m really just a regular guy and a small-town guy at that. But ever since I was a little kid, my face kind of got between me and people. They look at me and assume things – like I must hate being in this little town and want to be some famous actor or model. But I don’t! I love it here and I love waiting tables and doing bookkeeping and, of course, there’s Mark. But honest, even if Mark didn’t exist – yeah, I’d hate that – but even if he wasn’t a factor in my being here, I’d still want to stay in Ever After.” He grins. “also, People see me and assume I’m gay. That, of course, is true, even if I didn’t exactly know it for sure until recently.” 
I can totally see where people would think that you would want to make the most of your appearance, but what I have come to find is that you know what happens when you ASSume ;)

  1. Red, without giving anything away, you make a trip to the big city, what was your favorite food you tried while there?

He laughs. “To be honest, my favorite food was liquid. I kind of developed a taste for champagne. I know that’s not a wise favorite for a small-town guy without much money, but once you’ve had it, it’s hard not to like it.” 
 Oh wow, I have never had it! I will have to get your recommendation later on the best one for beginners!
  1. Red, what is your advice for a young person who may feel pressured into doing something they aren't comfortable with?

“Whew. That’s tough because it happens to so many kids. It sure happened to me. Sometimes it’s other kids who try to get you to do things that don’t feel right, and you go along to be part of the group. Truthfully, that’s one of the benefits of being an outsider. You don’t have as many people expecting you to do shit, excuse my language. Sometimes the people who expect you to do things are those you love, like parents, or for me, my grandmother. I think that’s even harder than peer pressure, because you don’t want to let them down. But the truth is, this is the only life you’ve got, that you know about anyway.” He flashes his dimples. “Do you really want to compromise it? When you’re forty or seventy, do you still want to remember how you did that thing that went against what you believe or what you wanted, just to make somebody else happy? I mean, they forget about it and you live with it -- forever. Bull! Me, I’d rather be able to say I made my own mistakes and went my own way. That’s what life’s about. Find out who you are – and be that.”
 I agree totally! Those that truly love you will accept your choices, those that don't, well who need em anyway!
  1. Mark: you are a big, quiet guy, do you think that people make assumptions about you because of it?
“Well, I guess.” He smiles softly. “But I am big and I am quiet, so those things are right. They may assume I’m kind of a simple guy, and that’s not really wrong either. The thing about a small town is that people know a lot about your family. People here know about my father. I’d just as soon they don’t think I’m like him, but, whether he meant to or not, he taught me to take care of what I love and let other people worry about the rest.”
I love how you really don't care what people say or think about you, if more people were like that this world would be such a different place!
 5. Mark: In this story you really prove yourself to be an all-around nice guy, what is the one thing that can make you mad as a hornet in no time? 
I guess I could say check the previous answer.” He chuckles. “I’m fairly easy going, but don’t mess with what I love.”
I can't wait for people to read this story so they can see these words in action!
NOW FOR MY BONUS QUESTION WITH MY VERY SPECIAL GUEST: RED'S GRAN! THANKS FOR COMING GRAN!
  1. Gran: Without giving much away you have a kickass blog, is there an easy recipe or DIY project you can give us? 
“Why thank you for asking. As you know, Granny in Jammies promotes healthy food and lifestyle.” She smiles. “But my grandson Redmond has taught me that health and enjoyment go hand in hand, so I think you need to have something a bit indulgent from time to time. Like a lot of people, I love my Instant Pot, and one of my favorite recipes combines arborio rice, broccoli, and chicken. I know that doesn’t sound very indulgent, but now I’m going to tell you that you also add – cheese. Lots of it gets melted into the rice at the last minute. It makes a sticky, not-too-bad-for-you, delicious risotto that will bring a smile to your face!”

I am soooo writing that down for later, it sounds amazing! Thank you Gran, and thank you Mark and Red for answering my questions, I can't wait for everyone to read your story!  
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR JOINING ME FOR MY RELEASE DAY REVIEW AND CHARACTER INTERVIEW! YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO READ THIS STORY NOW SO GRAB IT AND ENJOY! 


ZERO DIVERGENCE BLOG TOUR- REVIEW BY GRACE!!

Zero Divergence Tour Banner

HELLO FRIENDS, I AM HERE WITH MY BLOG TOUR STOP OF ZERO DIVERGENCE: ZERO HOUR 3 BY AIMEE NICOLE WALKER! GRACE IS REVIEWING THIS ONE SO LOOK FOR HER REVIEW, AN EXCERPT, TEASERS AND MORE BELOW!


Zero Divergence
Zero Hour Series, Book 3
Aimee Nicole Walker
M/M Romance/Mystery
Release Date: 03.17.20
Zero Divergence Cover
Photographer: Wander Aguiar
Artist: Jay Aheer
Models: Jacob and Steven
Blurb
Zero Divergence, noun: no deviation from a course or standard.
After a key piece of evidence goes missing, a suspected serial rapist and killer evades prosecution. More than Royce Locke’s reputation is on the line when his investigation into the failed chain of custody suggests Franco Humphries might’ve had inside help. There’s no one Royce trusts more than Sawyer Key to help him right a wrong and uncover the traitor in their midst, but can they do it before the Savannah Strangler strikes again?
Relentless plus fearless equals flawless. Sawyer and Royce have come full circle—from hostile strangers to best friends and lovers. Neither a sniper’s bullet nor an arsonist’s fire could keep them apart, but what about a psychopath hell-bent on revenge? The stakes are high, and there’s no turning back now because the zero hour is upon them. Tick tock.
Zero Divergence is the conclusion to the best-selling Zero Hour series, which follows Locke and Key’s investigations and evolving relationship. This is a series you MUST read in order. It contains mature language and sexual content intended for adults 18 and older.
Trigger warning: Part of the storyline involves coming to terms with a friend’s suicide, which may be difficult for some people to read.

GRACE'S REVIEW: 

Quote:
This quote encompasses more than just their jobs; it’s truly their personalities and their love.  It is who they are together that makes these men so memorable and loved.
Review:
This is the final book in the Zero Hour trilogy and it doesn’t disappoint.  The action, comradery, love and crazy in the first two books is topped off in this book with the addition of the HEA this author is known for.
This book picks up with Sawyer just getting out of the hospital after being severely burned in the take down of Father David from book 2.  Dealing with the possibility of scars brings back a lot of Sawyer’s teenage insecurities and Royce does his best to squash them. We are immediately brought back in touch with the entire crew, both family and friends before the partners are immersed again in a new case.  
Both men will have to buckle down and work with their friends to find all the puzzle pieces in this mystery.  They know their foe is guilty, but how to prove it? As they work through the evidence, another person is killed and their case is thrown for a loop.  New suspects are brought to light and as both men work through the evidence and clues, Royce also works through his guilt and love for Marcus. Trying to figure out how to find closure is one of the hardest things he’s endured.
I adore Royce and Sawyer’s relationship and how it has evolved over the series.  To see them now, very secure in their love is amazing and their ease with each other has been hard won.  This book includes murder, kidnapping, shootings and attempted drownings along with the unerring loyalty and the firm belief in each other that allows them to get their man… and the villain as well.
This author always creates a very well balanced world with vibrant characters, no matter if they are main characters or play a tiny player in the whole.  I’m never let down when I reach for one of her books and this is absolutely no exception. I hope everyone gives this series a try.
Rating:
It definitely gets the 5 Hot Wings Rating because Asshole and GB are just that hot.
I REALLY LOVE THAT RATING, THAT REVIEW AND THIS BOOK! AIMEE IS A FAVE HERE AT BIKE AND IF YOU HAVE READ HER BOOKS YOU KNOW WHY, IF YOU HAVEN'T WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR!!

Excerpt
“Oh my god,” he said as the chocolate cake melted in his mouth. “I need this for every occasion.”

“I’ll bake it once a week if you promise to listen to orders from now on,” Royce said, taking a bite for himself.

Sawyer met Royce’s stormy eyes. “I’ll agree to that if you promise not to give stupid orders.” He opened his mouth like a baby bird, and Royce gave him another bite. It was somehow more delicious than the first.

“No more burning buildings,” Royce groused.

“It wasn’t burning when I ran into it,” Sawyer countered. “You ran into the burning building.” He couldn’t be mad at Royce, because chances were, he’d be dead if Royce hadn’t risked his own life to pull Sawyer out of the inferno.

“So insubordinate.”

They stared at one another in a silent battle of wills for a few seconds before a big yawn ruined Sawyer’s fierce expression. “We’ll resume this after I take a power nap.” Smiling, Royce leaned forward to set the plate on the coffee table, but Sawyer stopped him. “But not until after I eat more cake.”

Royce aimed a cocky grin at him. “Got you hooked now.”

“You have no idea.”

BEC- THE REBUILDING YEAR: KAJE HARPER: 

This book is a must read if you haven't already, the heart and determination that Ryan has to rebuild his life after a terrible accident that cost him his firefighting job is enough to recommend this book, but add in his chemistry with heartbroken John and you have a recipe for a can't put down read for sure! Kaje Harper is an amazing author and this book, and series for that matter really shows it! 



AMY: COLLIDE: BLACKCREEK 1: RILEY HART: 

This is really and truly one of my favorites and my go-to book to read, it’s like a warm blanket by the fire. I absolutely love it!   Cooper and Noah knew each other as kids, best friends until Noah and his family disappeared.  Noah didn’t want to leave but being a kid he had no choice.   17 years later Noah came back to Blackcreek, colliding with Cooper when he got to town.   

Noah is gay, Army vet, furniture maker, wanting his best friend.  Cooper is straight, firefighter, has a homophobic family, and is jealous of anyone touching Noah.  Giving into his wants, Noah and Cooper decide to see where it goes.    Then tragedy strikes at a house fire, and Cooper’s family doesn’t want Noah near him.  But Noah won’t give up, the man he loves needs him!   It’s a beautiful story of friendship, first times, tragedy and love that is stronger than ever!!   Definitely a must read, it’s the first book in the series, all of them are fantastic stories!!  Riley Hart will amaze you with her words! 



JESS KURVERS: SAVIOR: 415 INK 2: RHYS FORD:

JESS KENNEDY: WILDEFIRE: A FOREVER WILDE NOVEL: LUCY LENNOX

I picked this as my firefighter book because, hello Otto is a Wilde and they're all flipping awesome. Although this could double as my Cop book if I hadn't already picked one, because his love interest Seth is the sexy sheriff le sigh. There is nothing better than a second chance romance, and I firmly believe no one deserves it more than Otto and Seth, there's mystery, danger and HELLA sexiness in this whole series! The low key angst keeps you on your toes and you can't help but cheer for these two, childhood sweethearts torn apart and reunited. If you haven't picked this book up or any of the series you are missing out.



GRACE: BEYOND THE SURFACE: THE BREAKFAST CLUB 1: FELICE STEVENS:

This is a book of second chances, becoming who you are meant to be and dealing with surviving the horrific tragedy of 9/11. Nick and Julian’s love crossed through time and they find their Happy Ever After through pain and tears, strength and love.  Felice always has a way of building characters and plots that draw you in deep and don’t let go.  If you haven’t already, grab this book and let yourself fall in love with Nick and Julian
