Review: Kele Moon has outdone herself in THE SLAYER (Untamed Hearts #2), and that’s saying a lot because THE VIPER (Untamed Hearts #1) built on the powerful story lines, strong characters, raw emotions and hot sex we’ve come to know in the Battered Hearts series.

Review & $25 GC Giveaway: “Adam’s Apple (Touch of Tantra #1)” by Liv Morris

AA coverReview: Liv Morris grabbed my attention from word one and never let go! 🙂

ADAM’S APPLE is told completely from the male point of view (POV), and it’s a refreshing change of pace. At first I thought maybe we were being introduced to the heroine but then it dawned on me during Adam’s first encounter with Kathryn that it was *his* voice telling the tale.

The first time these two talk…I was smiling broadly as the doctor put Adam in his place, then it was Adam’s turn to reveal he was even more determined to get to know Kathryn in every way.

Excerpt:

(Kathryn) “I take cocky, rich boys like you and teach them how to make love to women until they’re barely able to mutter a word. Completely and utterly blissed. That’s really what separates the men from the boys, Mr. Kingsley. Sex as an art form versus f**king for a release.”

(Adam’s response, a few paragraphs later in chapter 2) Kathryn clears her throat, catching me appreciating her breasts, and I look up from her chest. Collecting myself, I respond,. “Actually, I’m very selective about which pussy,” I pause, “…cat gets my tongue.” I watch her reaction and notice a wicked twinkle in her eye. She thinks I’m stepping into her trap, in reach of her claws, She is very mistaken.”

See? 🙂

4-Lime Review: “From the Ashes (Fire and Rain #1)” by Daisy Harris

From the Ashes cover

Review: FROM THE ASHES is yet another great read from Daisy Harris.

She has a deft touch when it comes to writing male/male romances, particularly ones featuring an ‘out’ hero and his ‘closeted’ love. 

Jesse Smith first meets firefighter Tomas Perez at the scene of the fire which destroyed his apartment and left the 21-year-old university student homeless. When Jesse decides he can’t let the landlords’ dog, a big female bull mastiff named Chardonnay, be taken away to the pound, Tomas makes a snap decision to put his home address on the pound’s form.

And so begins the relationship between these two, as they come to grips with their mutual attraction and Tomas’ hidden sexuality. Things are made more interesting and difficult at times by the fact that Tomas lives in a converted garage on his parents’ property in the SeaTac area of Seattle.

Tomas is one of three children of a Latino couple who immigrated to the United States decades ago. His brother Diego seems homophobic, having slapped Tomas when he first attempted to ‘come out’ as a teenager, but younger sister Maria is cool with her brother’s sexuality. Whether or not his parents know remains a mystery…until a big fight erupts between Tomas and Diego in their driveway about two-thirds of the way through the book.

Jesse’s parents haven’t had any contact with him for several months. He left home after saving enough money over the past year to move to Seattle after his father declared he couldn’t be gay and live at home.

Living as an openly gay young man in Seattle, Jesse has a couple of co-workers at a small coffee shop who liven up any scene they’re in. Michael is surly but has good intentions while Henri is fun and flamboyant most of the time but serious when needed and truly helpful in Jesse’s time of need post-fire.

Tomas’ co-workers at the fire station are used to making jokes using homophobic slurs without necessarily meaning them that way. This was mostly ok with him before he entered a relationship with Jesse and began accepting he truly was gay, and not simply a guy who liked occasionally getting his d*ck sucked by a stranger in a nightclub.

Jesse and Tomas go through their ups and downs, adjusting to life together and eventually becoming comfortable openly expressing their love for each other in front of their families. They save the hot stuff for their apartment of course, and boy, are these two hot! 🙂

I’m looking forward to reading more in the Fire and Rain series. I’m sure you’ll enjoy From the Ashes too.

 

Title: From the Ashes

Series: Fire and Rain (book 1)

Author: Daisy Harris

Publisher: Samhain Publishing

Publication date: August 13, 2013

From the Ashes coverSynopsis: He wanted a boyfriend. What he got was a hero.

When an accident burns down Jesse’s apartment, he’s left broke and homeless, with a giant dog and a college schedule he can’t afford to maintain. And no family who’s willing to take him in.

Lucky for him, a sexy fireman offers him a place to stay. The drawback? The fireman’s big Latino family lives next door, and they don’t know their son is gay.

Tomas’s parents made their way in America with hard work and by accepting help when it was offered, so he won’t let Jesse drop out of school just so he can afford a place to live. Besides, Jesse’s the perfect roommate—funny, sweet and breathtakingly cute. He climbs into Tomas’s bed and tugs at his heart. Until Jesse starts pushing for more.

Their passion enflames their bodies but threatens to crush Tomas’s family. Tomas is willing to fight for Jesse, but after losing everything, Jesse isn’t sure he can bear to risk his one remaining possession—his heart.

Warning: Contains an angry older brother, judgmental best friends, a slobbering bull mastiff, and enough red-hot gay loving to make a porn star blush.
