#listenwithme~~Gay for Pay Audiobook by T.M. Smith~Behind the scenes and a Giveaway

Tammy-Audible-banner-JayAheer2016

I have recently found a new way to feed my book obsession. Now I can read hands-free. Well maybe not read but listen. I still get more books.  I can be read to while I workout or do housework making these chores much more fun.  This week’s tour is an audio tour with my wonderful friend TM Smith. I have read her All Cocks books now I have the opportunity to listen as well. Dont forget to read on. There are some hot teasers and a giveaway!

I even got TM to take us behind the scenes

Behind the scenes, Gay for Pay.

I wanted to elaborate on the story behind this story. Gay for Pay is the first book in the All Cocks stories. The idea unfolded inside my chaotic head after several conversations I had with a couple of gay porn stars at GRL in Chicago. I had the pleasure of meeting two Randy Blue phenoms, Jordan Levine and Caleb Strong. One night we were having drinks at the Speakeasy and somehow we wound up on the subject of gay for pay. You see, I’ve never been a believer of the term. In my opinion, if you are a man and you let another man fuck you or suck you or vice versa, anything physical that involves two men, you are at the very least bi-sexual. Well, Jordan and Caleb set me straight on that assumption real quick.

Jordan is a straight gay for pay guy while Caleb is bi-sexual, I asked how can you be straight and fuck other men? I don’t understand, please help me understand. And he did just that. Our conversations play out on paper in the book, and I think once you read the book you’ll be able to pick out things that Jordan told me about his struggles working in the industry. And I have to say that both these guys were super friendly, outgoing and just a joy to hang out with. Caleb plays a mean hand of poker!

What I did for the backdrop of the story, this world I’m creating with this series, was tied in my fascination with online gay porn. I’m addicted I tell you, I need a twelve step program. I’m especially drawn to the Cockyboys family. I follow several of the models as well as the matriarch of the famdamily, Jake Jaxson, on social media. They just exude this vibe of family, and I love that aspect to their site in particular. So what I did was created my own sort of mock gay porn site and family, the All Cocks stories. While their jobs are creating these sexually charged videos, at the end of the day, it’s all about family. I hope that is what you take with you when you finish the book.

Christopher Allan Roberts thought he had a promising future: captain of the football team with the promise of a scholarship to play for Alabama, his high school sweetheart and best friend for as long as he could remember, Amanda, by his side, and the love and support of his family. One night, one mistake changed everything. Chris moves to New York, adrift and alone. A walk one night brings him to the flashing lights, loud music and thrumming bodies at Club Berlin. A flyer in the men’s room promises fame and fortune for anyone willing to go on camera and have sex, with another man. Money is money, and how hard could it be, right? Christopher Allan Roberts becomes Kris Alen, All Cocks’ newest addition, a gay for pay porn star.
Lincoln Carter is honest with everyone in his life, including his family, about who he is and about his sexual preferences. Linc Larson, the openly bisexual gay porn star, will do anything with anyone, which pretty much writes his ticket in a versatility-charged industry. It’s not his sexuality that interferes with his personal life; it’s his inability to trust. What Linc wants right now, more than anything, is the chance to do a scene with All Cocks’ newest acquisition, Kris Alen. Six-foot-two with auburn hair, an exquisitely toned and inked up body, Kris Alen is sex personified. Linc doesn’t know if it’s the “I want the shiny new toy” aspect that calls to him, or the distant and wounded expression that haunts Kris’s eyes.
Linc figures out early on that Kris is only working the gay for pay angle that All Cocks brings to his bank account. Can a bisexual man with trust issues break down the barriers that Kris has built around himself and help Christopher overcome the painful past he is running from?

: Chris has lost a lot in his young life. He has no job, no prospects and the money he inherited from his grandfather is almost gone. He doesn’t want to crash on his best friend’s couch forever. He goes into club Berlin, meets Kolton and makes yet another gay friend. While there he finds a flyer on the wall that advertises for gay porn models and states they take gay for pay models as well.  Once he meets Vicor, Andrew and several others at All Cocks, he decides to give it a try.

I loved this story when I read it and was eager to see how it would be on Audio. I loved it.

Tony Clark’s voice is smooth and sexy. Though he only changed his voice for two of the many characters, Victor and Linc I don’t think it was quite necessary. He had a good enough way to the telling that it was clear who was speaking and when.  I laughed out loud a few times and let me tell you, his renditions of the hot sex scenes were so sensual and mind-blowing hot!

I highly recommend you give this a listen! (Be sure to wear your headphones or earbuds if listening in public!

Cat’s Meow~~Reviews that Purrr~~Naturally Yours by Adele Downs

cats meow final

Hi Yall. Welcome to Cat’s Meow Reviews that Purr. This month I am continuing the Love is in the Air/ Valentines theme.This week I have another fabulous story by  Adele Downs. I am finding you can’t go wrong if you’re looking for a good, sweet, yet satisfying romance.

I hope you enjoy the review!

 Naturally Yours

Title: Naturally Yours

Author: Adele Downs

Publisher: Boroughs Publishing Group

Pages: 100

Who will save a man who saves the world?

Paramedic Mickey Kendall hasn’t slept a full night since his return from Iraq. He rescues victims by day and protects the innocent after dark. Mickey doesn’t do it for glory; he wants absolution, not admiration. He lives by the rule: No personal contact after a rescue. That code meets the ultimate test when Mickey saves a child’s life on a roadside and declines the parents’ invitation to dinner at their upscale restaurant.

Master chef Amanda Greer lives by the principle that delicious food and good company build bridges. When she learns Mickey has refused her business partners’ hospitality, she persuades him to change his mind. The handsome paramedic visits her restaurant and Amanda joins him at his table. Their unexpected chemistry turns kinetic and leads to a passionate kiss.

In Amanda’s arms, Mickey finds relief from the stressors that haunt him, but resists falling in love. When Amanda challenges him to face his demons and accept the love she offers, Mickey arrives at a crossroad. The war-weary paramedic must first save himself to claim the woman who reignites his passion for living and revives his wounded heart.

Excerpt:

“They called you a hero in the press.” Her dark lashes lowered and lifted and she smiled at him with admiration shining in her eyes. “They were right, of course. What you did for Jack can never be repaid.”

Mickey winced at the hero reference. “I hate to disappoint you, but I only did what I’m trained to do.”

Amanda made sounds of disagreement low in her throat. “Elena told me at least a hundred and fifty cars passed her on the highway. Every one of them ignored her cries for help. Of all those people, don’t you think one might have been medically trained? Or at least cared enough to respond? No. You stopped. Only you.”

Oh. He hadn’t thought of that.

She pointed a finger at his chest. “There’s a difference between you and other people. There’s no other way to explain what happened on that roadway. Elena is convinced you’re special, and I never doubt her perceptions. That’s another reason why I wanted to meet you.”

Mickey stared into Amanda’s eyes and her pupils dilated. Her lips parted, ever so slightly, as if to welcome a kiss. Her tongue touched the inside of her bottom lip and disappeared. Mickey knew then, she felt it too. Synergy. Chemistry. An attraction so powerful it turned kinetic on contact.

Some called it love at first sight.

Amanda. Even her name was beautiful.

She took a sip of her drink and he watched her mouth and throat work the liquid. When she set down the tumbler, she wiped a droplet from the corner of her mouth with a trimmed, unpolished fingertip. Mickey wished he could have swiped the bead away with his tongue.

Amanda leaned closer and pressed a hand to his wrist. “Trained or not, you were the only stranger on that highway who had a heart.”

Mickey laid his hand over hers and she let him keep it there. Until now, he wasn’t sure he still had a heart. His had been chipped away, piece by piece, like a block of ice since the war. He’d considered it long gone, with his soul. In mere minutes, what was left had thawed in the center, leaving him raw and exposed.

Amanda continued to speak; clearly unaware she’d stripped away another layer. “I love Jack like he’s my own son. He’s a terrific kid. I’ve helped take care of him since the day the Martins and I started this restaurant. When you saved him, you saved us all.” Amanda leaned in and pressed a quick, sweet kiss against Mickey’s jaw.

Their gazes locked when she sat back in her chair. The gravity of her words and her straightforward kiss humbled him into speechlessness. He’d been thanked many times before, but this woman had gotten to him like no one else. He squeezed her hand and then downed the rest of his drink. Amanda took another sip of hers and set the glass on the table before retreating into silence. She turned the tumbler slowly in her hands.

Mickey looked back at her and tapped two fingers against the menu’s leather cover. “Nothing here is what I expected.”

Amanda returned a quiet smile, either assuming he meant food choices, or pretending he had. She tucked her arms beneath her breasts and leaned forward against the edge of the table, lifting perfect white swells above the neckline of her blouse. “Organic means untouched by artificiality. Grown and consumed in its natural state. We eat only healthy foods unspoiled by chemicals, preservatives, hormones, steroids, antibiotics, and genetically modified seeds or cells. Pure.”

Pure. Mickey gazed at the stunning woman by his side. The texture of her skin looked smooth as cream and welcoming to the touch. He longed to run his hands along her thighs, imagining sleek roads leading to heaven at their apex. “I like the sound of that.” The way she looked back at him while he studied her face made him wonder if she’d read his mind.

The one that had gone dirty.

  MY Review

5 Meows.

Naturally yours is a beautiful story of two people that have been through a lot, and have to face personal struggles in order to find happiness together. There is  a lot of angst as Mickey fights his demons, and I admire that he does what he does not wanting the glory and limelight. I also loved that the author was able to give her husband a mention for inspiring the heart-wrenching , nail-biting, first scene the escalates this story…How do I know this? I read the  acknowledgements at the end of the book.

If you love, sweet romances, that are short and can be read in a small amount of time, strong characters and a beautiful romance… I highly recommend this.

#snippetsunday~~Decisions,Decisions

Snippet Sunday

Hi, Y’all! It’s time for Snippet Sunday again. It’s February and what better time for a sweet contemporary romance?

This week  I introduce Gypsy Rose’s mom and more than one decision Gypsy Rose needs to make.

This is a rough draft and the only eyes on it has been mine… so remember this is a diamond in the rough please be kind.

Sweet Gypsy Rose copyright 2014

 I finish putting the new stuff out on display when mom comes in. I’m glad to see her. She comes in most days but what time she shows up is a crap shoot. When she is off exploring with Ebby my niece picks up the slack if she isn’t tied up with cheer-leading or whatever teenage girls have going on these days. My mind clouds up when I remember my life at her age.
“Dollar for your thoughts.” My mom’s cheery voice snaps me back to the present.
“I think that’s a penny mom.” I chuckle.
“A penny doesn’t even buy a piece of bubble gum anymore so I figure your thoughts should be worth at least a dollar.” She pulls me into a big hug. I’m thankful she is a tiny woman or she might suffocate me with those tight hugs.
“Whats wrong sweetie?”
“All is good mom. I have a date tonight and was wondering if you would be in today or if I needed to call Whippoorwill. With my luck you wouldn’t be here and she would be off doing whatever it is she is into this week.”
“I see, then you remembered what you were doing at her age and that’s why the sad look.”
I look quickly away and hope we don’t go into her thoughts on that again. I really want to talk about my date, she will have some good ideas I’m sure. I turn to see her colorful skirt disappearing into the back. I take of to catch her. “Wait mom!”
“I thought I’d bake you a batch of those chocolate rolls you like so much. Those always make you feel better.”
“MMM Ok. When you come back down I want to talk about this date. I told him I would show him around town. I have no idea what he likes or doesn’t like. Should I take him out or take him to dinner at my place or what? I’ve never been the one to ask a guy out first.”
“I see it’s not with Ray or you wouldn’t be asking any of these questions. Sounds like someone new in town. Who is it sweetie.”
“Frank the new man at the bank.”
“Really? He is a bit of an oddity around here. Seems friendly but from what I hear he is a loner, never goes out or anything.” She stops moving and taps her chin with a long red nail. “ Elsie, one of the tellers at the bank told us the other night at bingo she has invited him over a few times to dinner or out to bingo and he always has an excuse. She says he usually eats his lunch in his office and rarely sits in the lounge room. She also said she sees him clean his desk every time a client leaves and she thinks he uses a bottle of sanitizer a day.”
“Mom I doubt anyone can use a whole bottle of that a day. The ones the bank has are huge. Besides Elsie is a busybody and a nag. No wonder he turned her down. She’s enough to scare anyone off.”
“She’s not the only one that says that kind of stuff about him. Everything I hear makes him sound like one of those Germiphobes.”
“Well that’s good to know. I’ll keep that in mind while planning.Any suggestions on what to do?”
“Let me think about it while I’m cooking your chocolate rolls. Though you can rule out taking him to your place.”
“My place isn’t that dirty mom.” I roll my eyes like a teenager. Then I remember I worked all night and the house isn’t as clean as usual.
“I wasn’t exactly thinking about neatness.” She shot me an odd look.
I nibble my nails trying to figure out what she is talking about.
“Your problem is over 6 foot tall and even though he has his own place seems to stay at yours.” She smacks my hand from my mouth. “You better not do that around your new man if he has germ issues.”
“He’s not my new man. Yet.” I let out an exasperated puff of air. ” Yeah I am going to have to have a talk with Ray.” I know she is right. Mothers are always right. Or that’s what I have always been told.

I hope you are enjoying this story and will come back next for more Sweet Gypsy Rose.

#foodiefriday~~Feeling Chip-per

Presentation1

Hi ya’ll. Welcome back to foodie Friday. I hope you are enjoying the posts. What do you think of my new slide? 

I was talking to a friend about healthier snack alternatives to potato chips—one of my biggest downfalls. We came up with several options.

Option one—eat the chips. Yes, you read that right. I don’t mean eat a full family sized bag but get the smaller prepackaged individual ones and eat one bag on occasion( not every day).  You can get a large bag which is sometimes cheaper and bag up the portions into sandwich bags.

Option two—try homemade potato chips and bake them. I like sweet potato chips.. here is the link to the recipe I used. ( My furbaby Molly likes them too)) Carrots make good chips as well.

http://minimalistbaker.com/baked-sweet-potato-chips/

Baked-Sweet-Potato-Chips-the-minimalist-baker-google

This is not my photo  it belongs to the site above.http://minimalistbaker.com

I do have a mandolin, but a good sharp knife works too.  This works for a regular potato as well. I used the white bakers.

Option three– homemade tortilla chips. I LOVE these. I take a four or corn tortilla spray with olive or buttery cooking spray salt lightly and bake till crispy. I use these for nachos,  or guacamole or just plain ole munching!

Now here is where we go crazy. Fruit and Veggie chips. I have a dehydrator and often try to make apple and banana chips. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t.  It takes practice getting it right so I usually snatch a bag at the grocery store on grocery day. A few of these in the afternoon helps me with sweet cravings. Careful though because these can be higher in calories than you think so be sure to look up serving amounts and don’t exceed. That’s the secret…portion control.

And HERE is a real surprise…Kale chips. I was very shocked with this one. I have a big tub made up now. It’s not expensive, and it’s easy. I bought a bunch of kale, but you can probably get it in a bag as well. The bunch was pretty cheap here. I gave 79 cents for mine. I cut off the stems at bottom wash them pat dry. I line a sheet with foil and spray with olive or buttery cooking spray. I always line my pans for easy cleanup.  Cut the little leaves off and lay on the sheet, the bigger one I cut into bite sized pieces ( remove the thick stem or it gets chewy—YUCK!) You can simply season with salt and pepper, or garlic salt but I like taco seasoning. I tried ranch seasoning it wasn’t for me.  Bake in a preheated oven about 350  for 10 minutes or until crispy. They do get sort of a dark color. The do have a bit of a green aftertaste and are crumbly and messy, but I really liked them.

Here is a link to an official recipe if it’s easier than my scattered directions. LOL

http://ohsheglows.com/2014/03/12/6-tips-for-flawless-kale-chips-all-dressed-kale-chips-recipe/

 

I think I will try this next time and see if mine is even better.

Have you ever tried homemade chips before? What are your favorite kinds?

Cat’s Meow~~~ Noah’s Journey

Title: Noah’s Journey
Series: Sawyer Brothers Series #3
Author: C.A. Harms
Genre: Western Contemp Romance
Release Date:  February 2, 2016
Publisher: Limitless Publishing
Pages: 159
The years that were taken can never be repaid. 

The memories stolen can never be returned. 

But I had to move forward…for him, my son. 

Noah had spent years wondering what he could have done differently. Wondering what he’d done wrong to make Stacey leave. The heartache from her absence and the what-ifs of their past eventually turned to anger—and then disgust. 

It took years for him to move on, and once he did, his past came thundering back, revealing a secret. 

A secret that would forever change his future. 

Alena had waited for the chance to have more with Noah. He was an enigma, a man of mystery, yet she wasn’t quite ready to give up on him. She knew there was more to him than what he allowed those around him to see. She was drawn to his charm and his calm nature. With an uprooted past of her own, she craved a little stability more than anything. But when things between them finally begin to grow into more, their relationship is tested. 

Will it all be too much for Alena to handle? 
Or will she decide to stay and be a part of…Noah’s Journey?

CA Harms you are an outstanding author and I love every word you write! Keep up the good work!!” – For the Love of Books

unnamed
4 meows  4 purrs (scorching)
 This is book three of a series, and you do need to read them in order, or you may be quite confused about who all the characters are.
Noah and Alena have just begun to date when his past comes back to haunt him. Suddenly finding out he is a father he struggles to spend all the time he can with Austin but Alena feels she is being pushed away.
The Sawyer Brothers is a very good story of three brothers, family and life struggles each as to overcome an obstacle and finds love Noahs’s journey is a great story.  I loved how it showed how he is a good father and such a good person. This series is a character-driven story and each man (and woman) grow as the books move on.
The one thing I had an issue with was the epilogue at the end. It gave each character four years later, and that was a very sudden jump. Also, Noah’s part of the epilogue was at the end and was very jarring. I would have liked to seen that as part of the story then the others epilogues.
All in all the story is very good, Characters excellent and sex scenes are smoking hot.
If you like cowboys, that are also cops (we get double hotness here)strong female leads, bakers, designers, cute kids and very hot sex scenes you will like this series!

C.A. Harms is like any other addicted reader. She enjoys happy endings and HEA love stories. She hasn’t always been a lover of Romance and had once been addicted to a good Mystery. Just recently she has taken on a new liking and now is a full blown Romance novel addict.
She lives in Illinois and enjoys spending time with her husband and two children. You will always find her with her kindle or paperback in hand as it is her favorite pass time.
