synopsis

 

unnamed (1)Spencer Quinn has an image to uphold. His family name means more than anything. It’s the reason the reason they’ve become the most successful stock contractor on the rodeo circuit. Fresh out of school, he’s ready to take over the family business. It’s no secret he’s attracted to men, and so far that hasn’t been a problem.

Until Evan.

The assertive friend who knows how to push every one of his buttons.

Evan Taylor is known for his love ‘em and leave ‘em style, yet the last few months have left him deflated and lonely. His father’s shadow wasn’t where he wanted to end up, but he’s having trouble finding happiness. Maybe because women can’t keep his attention. He’s losing hope of settling down until a blast from the past saunters by, his heart catches and tingles spread over his skin.

Of all people, Spencer. The one person who would never give Evan a second glance. It’s just his luck.

The old saying, “Bad luck is better than none at all” fits Evan perfectly. Or does it? Is his bad luck about to change? Will Spencer Quinn be a good luck charm instead?

review

3meows 2 Purrs( low heat)

Spencer has returned from college ready and is learning to take over his father’s business when he retires. Evan is ready for a change in his life. He just had a birthday and is tired of waking up with a different woman every day. He is unsatisfied and ready to find someone and decide his future, knowing he won’t be able to ride the rodeo forever. When Spencer shows up all grown up feelings come forth Evan didn’t know existed. Now he has to prove to Spencer and, SPencer’s brother which is his best friend that he can be the man Spencer needs , not some screwed up, playboy cowboy.

Reading the blurb, this story had so much promise. I love a good cowboy book, especially the rodeo, rough and tumble type. I was a little disappointed.  Don’t get me wrong. The book is very good. It is a perfect  sweet romance where the bad boy triess to change and win over the man he wants. There just was no real conflict or action to the story. I did enjoy it and am curious to see what book two holds.

If you like cowboys and a sweet romance you should like this.

I was given a free copy for an honest review.

Cat’s Meow ~~Reviews that Purr by Iyana Jenna~~#dark romance #taboo #review

Hi, Y’all! Welcome to Cat’s Meow Reviews that Purr. I have slipped in an extra one this month for a good friend the lovely Iyana Jenna. Everyone send a warm welcome out to Iyana!  Be sure to check out her book,  Where the Heart belongs.

April, hmm. Cathy asked me to write something about April. The month, I guess. Well, I don’t think I have special something about that month, not even the fact that it’s at the beginning of Spring. I live in a country with two seasons, hot and very hot—no just kidding. It’s dry and rainy seasons. So I don’t have experiences with Spring. But something did cross my mind when seeing this topic about April. Did you know The Famous Five? It’s a series of children books written by a British author, Enid Blyton. I loved the series so much and in fact, they were one of the reasons why I like reading—and later on, writing. I also loved the first TV series made based on the books.

Now, what does that have anything to do with April? So, apparently three of the four actors who played the main characters in the aforementioned TV show were born in April. They are the actors playing the characters of Julian (Mark Harris), George (Michele Gallagher), and Anne (Jennifer Thanisch). All three of them are from England. Oh, and mind you, the series was produced in 1978, and I first saw it in 1982 or 1983, and I still remember their names! I guess I was really impressed with the show. One thing is for sure; I love The Famous Five very much!

MY REVIEW

3meows  3 purrs(moderate heat)

 Hate Crimes, Serial Killers, and Brotherly Love took to the extreme.

After dropping off his brother and boyfriend Drew at a bus station, Zach is beaten and kidnapped by a deranged serial killer. He has lost his brother/ the love of is life and nearly his life but will his secret cost him more?

Where the Heart Belongs is a short story full of twists, angst, and misery. It has unique characters and has a few twists. The story has incest, has beatings, and rape, so it isn’t for everyone. None of that bothers me. The one thing I had an issue with was the story just ended. I had so many unanswered questions. Though it doesn’t say it’s a first of a series or anything I, hope there is another book to answer those questions.

If you like lots of angst, dark stories, Taboo such as incest and rape, mystery and suspense, I think you will like this story.

cats-meow-final.jpg

Hi, Yall. Welcome to Cat’s Meow Reviews that Purr month of Snow special. I hope you enjoy the review and even find a book you want to read! Today’s guest is  Teodora Kostova.

Snowed In

Title:  Snowed In

Series: NA

Author: Teodora Kostova

Genre: Contemporary, Second Chances, Friends to Lovers

Length:108 pages

Publisher: Self-Published Nov 30 2015

Heat Level: Explicit

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥♥

Blurb: Be careful what you wish for…

Nate has been in love with Quinn, his brother’s best friend, for as long as he can remember. But when he finally gets the chance to show Quinn how he feels, his heart gets broken in the most unexpected way.

Second chances come when you least expect them…

Quinn doesn’t believe in miracles, especially not Christmas ones. When he decides to win Nate back, he knows it won’t be easy. The last thing he expects is a health scare, a road trip and a vicious snow storm to work in his favor.

In the end, a cabin in the woods turns out to be not only the shelter they desperately need but also Quinn’s very own Christmas miracle.

Sometimes, to forgive, you need to get snowed in.

Review: 3 meows-4 puurs (hot sexual content)

Nate fell in love with his brother’s best friend at the tender age of 15. He was his first and only love. On a trip to the family cabin with his brother, brother’s girlfriend and Quinn, the plan for  Nate was to seduce Quinn tell him how he felt and see what happens. Quinn’s plan was to tell him how he felt but keep his distance until he could commit to him.  The attraction being too strong they wound up in bed, and Quinn snuck out without an explanation leaving Nate devasted.

Quinn’s plan was to tell him how he felt but keep his distance until he could commit to him.  The attraction being too strong they wound up in bed, and Quinn snuck out without an explanation leaving Nate devasted.

This book had a  strong storyline with a holiday theme, friends to lovers and first love. It was also extremely hot and sexy.  I loved all the above themes and felt the story did them justice. What I didn’t like was the reason Quinn stole off in the middle of the night, though an honorable thing just wasn’t reason enough not to tell Nate the truth and avoid all this hurt.

Now having said that… the story wasn’t about that issue ( I

would have liked to have known more about that part of Quinn’s life though)it was about getting

Nate back into his life and making amends.

I think the story was great, just compacted into too few a words. I would have also liked to have known how Nate ended up in his brother’s apartment in LA and Brandon’s Girlfriend back home pregnant and Brandon and Faith not married and living together.  I think this would have made a great longer story and worth the read.

If you like friends-to-lovers, first-love, second chances, holiday story, snowstorms, and some steamy hot man-sex, this is for you.

Meet Teodora Kostova: Hi, my name is Teodora, and I live in London with my husband and my son. I’ve been writing ever since I can remember, but it became my full-time job in 2010 when I decided that everything else I’ve tried bores me to death, and I have to do what I’ve always wanted to do, but never had the guts to embrace fully. I’ve been a journalist, an editor, a personal assistant and an interior designer among other things, but as soon as the novelty of the new, exciting job wears off, I always go back to writing. Being twitchy, impatient, loud and hasty are not qualities that help a writer, because I have to sit alone, preferably still, and write for most of the day, but I absolutely love it. It’s the only time that I’m truly at peace and the only thing I can do for more than ten minutes at a time – my son has a bigger attention span than me.
When I’m procrastinating, I like to go to the gym, cook Italian meals (and eat them), read, listen to rock music, watch indie movies and True Blood re-runs. Or, in the worst case scenario, get beaten at every Wii game by a very inventive kid
