FEATURED AUTHOR

THE RIGHT TIME BLOG TOUR!!!


HEY THERE FRIENDS, I AM HERE WITH A BLOG TOUR STOP TODAY, THE RIGHT TIME; A RIGHT AND WRONG STORY BY LANE HAYES, AND IT IS A WONDERFUL STORY! I HAVE MY REVIEW, LINKS, AN EXCERPT, AUTHOR BIO AND LINKS, AND EVEN A GIVEAWAY, SO LET'S GET STARTED:




THIS IS THE PERFECT QUOTE FOR THESE TWO GUYS, HERE IS MY REVIEW: 

                       The Right Time (A Right or Wrong Story) by: Lane Hayes
                                                             reviewed by: Becky


Workaholic Nate Erickson is a successful real estate developer who thrives on long hours and stress. When a Los Angeles project prompts him to relocate to Santa Monica, he welcomes the change of scenery. Nate has always considered romantic entanglements trouble, but his sexy next-door neighbor isn’t easy to ignore. Which makes no sense, because Nate is straight… or so he’s always thought.



Alex Reyes is a retired professional soccer player turned West Hollywood business owner with an insatiable lust for life. He loves his family, friends, and work. But there’s one life challenge left to accomplish: coming out publically. Respect for traditional Latino values has kept him in the closet, but Alex begins to think he and his new neighbor might help one another combat their fears. As Alex and Nate forge a strong friendship, they soon realize facing their personal demons will take more courage than either man bargained. The reward is immeasurable… if the timing is right.



This story was captivating from cover to cover, I love this author's style and the way she grabs your attention and holds it! The characters are so multi layered you feel like you know them inside and out!

Nate works too hard, and it seems that he thrives on it. When he moves to Santa Monica the last thing Nate thinks will happen is that someone will catch and hold his attention, he doesn't do long term, and he is really confused because the next door neighbor he is lusting after is a man!

Alex is a sweetheart, so talented and close to those he loves, the only problem is he can't really be who he is fully until he comes out of the closet. When he meets his new neighbor, the sparks fly and it becomes almost impossible not to follow his heart.

Will these two throw caution in the wind and be able to be together? If they can, they still have the past to deal with, and for one of these men dealing with the past will be heartbreaking. 

You will love this book, but grab your tissues and cue up your Beethoven for this one! Thanks Lane, for a beautiful book that invokes so many different emotions!

I JUST HAD TO DO THE MOONLIGHT SONATA RATING, YOU WILL SEE WHY WHEN YOU READ THE BOOK ;) HERE ARE THE LINKS:



GRAB THIS BOOK, HERE IS AN EXCERPT FOR YOU:


I hadn’t worked out with a professional in years, and it felt foreign to wait for someone else’s direction.
“Any issues with your shoulders or arms? Any injuries I should know about?” he asked, handing me the weights.
“No, I’m good.”
“Great. Start with your palms facing your thighs, lift them both over your chest, then lower the left. Good. And now the right.”
He stood over me diligently, making slight corrections when needed. My supine position gave me an interesting perspective. When I looked up, I noted how his strong brow offset his twinkling eyes. I swallowed uncomfortably and turned my head, only to find myself staring at his crotch. His dark shorts seemed to hint they were covering a generous package.
Holy fuck.
“You doing okay?”
“Uh yeah. Hey, weren’t you going to tell me about your Friday night?” I needed him to talk. I didn’t trust my thoughts anymore, and I was stuck in my current position crazily aware of a man in a way I hadn’t been in over fifteen fucking years. Diversion in any form was welcome.
Alex snorted. “I already told you. I went dancing, and oh yeah, I did get lucky.”
He added the last part with a hearty chuckle, no doubt catching my wide-eyed expression. I hadn’t expected that.
“Oh.”
“You asked.”
“Right.” I did? The strong flash of jealousy took me by surprise, but I pressed on. “Did you go back to the beach to get those girls’ numbers last weekend?”
He looked confused for a second, but a slow cocky grin soon spread across his handsome features as he crouched so his face was close to mine.
“No, I told you they weren’t my type.”
I gulped and watched his eyes lower to my throat. He licked his top lip and reached out to adjust my wrist.
“Lift ’em both at the same time, Nate. That’s it. Push it. Harder.”
I sent up a quick prayer I wasn’t sporting a tent in my shorts. Alex’s voice, touch, and yeah, the unintentional innuendos were making me nuts. And horny. I felt terribly out of my element. I wasn’t sure what we were talking about anymore, but the potent silence made me more uncomfortable than speech. Keep talking, I thought.
“So a dance partner?”
“What? Oh. Yeah, I think so. I can’t remember. It was just one of those things, you know? Sit up. Let’s give your arms a break.”
“Just one of those things?”
“Yeah. One night. No numbers exchanged. No hassle, no fuss.”
I had no words. Literally.
Alex chuckled gleefully as he led the way to a leg machine. He gave instructions and stood back to observe me for a moment.
“It’s not necessarily my favorite kind of sex, but hey….” He shrugged his shoulders with his hands outstretched as if to say “what’s a guy to do?”
I recognized this cue. It was my opportunity to commiserate about the trials and tribulations of being a single man with a healthy sexual appetite. Now was my chance to admit it was nice every once in a while to have sex of the nonsolo variety with someone who knew the score. But I was tongue-tied and equally aware of a completely different undercurrent. One I wasn’t brave enough to explore.
“You can stop having fun at my expense any time.”
Alex squeezed my shoulder and smirked playfully. “You’re easily rattled.”
“How so?”
“You seem like someone who has a place for everything and likes everything in its place. You have a routine, and you don’t appreciate any deviation. I should be flattered you came to the gym with me at the spur of the moment.” He paused, running his tongue over his plump bottom lip. “If you’re not careful, I’m gonna think you like me.”

The air between us crackled. Alex leaned forward so his handsome face was mere inches from mine. His proximity alone seemed to issue a challenge. Daring me to confess I was more than I appeared to be. I doubt he expected any revelations, but his intent was certainly to… how had he put it, rattle me. And damn, it was working.

YES! THE CHEMISTRY BETWEEN THESE TWO IS OFF THE CHARTS AS YOU CAN SEE! NOW HOW ABOUT AN AUTHOR Q&A THAT JUST MAY HAVE YOU DROOLING!


Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Lane Hayes author of The Right Time.


 Hi Lane, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.

Hi there! Thank you for having me here today! Hmm. Let’s see… what new, exciting things can I tell you about me? I am an avid romance reader turned MM author a couple years ago when my first book, Better Than Good, was released. I live in So CA near the beach, and yes… the Right & Wrong Stories series features places well known to me, either in LA or closer to home in Orange County. My newest release, The Right Time, is Alex’s story. If you’ve read The Right Words and/or The Wrong Man, you’ll remember Alex as Michael’s best friend and a former professional soccer play. I knew from the start, Alex needed his own HEA. He’s a great character. The type of guy you wish good things for. He’s fun, energetic and generous. A perfect balance to Nate’s private, cautious nature.

I totally agree, i really loved this story! here are the questions, let's have some fun:
1. Do you have pictures that you use for your characters? Can you share them with us?

Yes! These are my Alex & Nate inspiration photos. *swoon










These are a couple of good looking guys, right?
BEC- OH MY THEY ARE PERFECT! LOVE THIS!


  1. What kind of book would you like to write that people would see as a huge departure for you?
I would love to write a mystery/suspense novel someday. Knowing me, I’d probably want to throw in a little romance (or a lot!) and yeah, it would probably still be MM. Write what you love!

BEC- WE WOULD TOTALLY READ WHATEVER YOU WANT TO GIVE US, THIS I CAN PROMISE YOU!

  1. Have you ever killed a character? Was it traumatic for you? If you haven’t killed one, would you ever consider it?
No. I’ve come close, but I’ve avoided it so far. I would consider it in a future book. It’s obviously a touchy subject and one that would need to be handled with care to be effective. I have to make sure I’m in the right frame of mind to do it justice.
BEC- AND IF YOU DO, YOU MIGHT WANT TO PUT A WILL NEED TISSUES WARNING ON THAT BAD BOY! ;P
  1. Favorite location you’ve ever written about?
New York City! NYC is the location for my WIP (and the entire next series). It is absolutely my favorite city and I’ve really enjoyed exploring a place I know well through my writing.

BEC- YES! CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS!
  1. What’s your favorite season and favorite activity for that season?
My favorite season is autumn. I love the crisper weather, the changing leaves and wearing warm snuggly sweaters. Sure signals the holidays are quickly approaching! I suppose my favorite fall activity would be anything to do with preparing for Halloween or Thanksgiving. Baking, shopping, holiday parties. It’s a festive time of year when everyone seems a little happier. Or maybe that’s just me.

BEC- NOPE, NOT JUST YOU, IT IS MY FAVORITE SEASON TOO! SMELLS THE BEST TOO, WITH ALL THE CRISP LEAVES AND SPICES! THANKS SO MUCH FOR ANSWERING OUR QUESTIONS LANE, IT WAS A BLAST!
