Live for Love is now available in 
Audiobook format!

 

Beauregard Boudreaux is a native of New Orleans Louisiana, born and raised there, he never thought he would ever stray far from home. The untimely death of his first love left Beau lost, adrift, looking for a place as far away from the pain as possible. Initially, he came to New York to visit a friend, the city growing on him, so he decided to stay. His law degree comes in handy at the LGBT Center he runs, but his bar is his baby. 

William Richards grew up in Chicago, his family oddly normal and very accepting of his sexuality. Modeling paid the bills, gigs across the country as a model, male entertainer and a personal trainer giving him the opportunity to see the world. He hasn’t experienced loss or pain as Beau has, the common denominator between them is the loneliness. As All Cocks big, brooding bottom Connor, William has found friendship, family and an outlet for his craving to be more submissive than men of his size and stature usually are.


The two men are perfect for each other, their tastes and lives align and the writing seems to be on the wall. But Beau has a secret he shares with a choice few, a secret that not only threatens to keep them apart, it’s deadly. Determined to keep a wall between himself and William, Beau fights the attraction, pushes William away every time he steps closer. Can one man’s determination and strength be enough to tear down a wall that holds back decades of pain and darkness? And if he can, will either of them survive the flood?


Disclaimer: This book is the fictional story of a man living with HIV. I have put a lot of time and effort into presenting this story as true to fact as possible, without going into gory or gruesome detail. If this subject is a trigger for you, you may want to skip this read. But my hope is that you give Beau a chance to capture your heart as he has mine, and William’s.

My Review

Overall  5 meows
Performance 5 meows
Story 5 meows

Beau is many things. sexy, a Bar owner a lawyer and advocate to LGBT centers and runaway youth. He is also lonely and has a secret that keeps from finding comfort in another man.

William is a big man that men think he always wants to so he never gets fulfilled in relationships. He took a liking to Beau at first sight and is bound to get what he wants.But can he handle Beau’s secret?

This is a beautiful story with lots of angst.It is also a story of men making new friends as Beau meets Micah and Gabe and the others at the studio.It’s a story of community and family because these guys stick together better than most families. There is a lot of love and a few sad places as well.
This is one of my favorite in this series as it really tugs at the heartstrings.
I read the book which is awesome but I recommend the Audio.
Joel Leslie brings such great voices to the characters, the tempo is perfect inflictions perfect he just makes a good thing so much better.

As long as it’s a book! ~~ #MFRWauthor #blogchallenge #amreading

Hi, Ya’ll! It’s week  30 of  the 52 week MFRW blog challenge. This week’s topic is Paperback, EBook or Audio? This is both easy and hard topic.  Easy because I could write all day about books as I am a book addict.  Hard because how do I choose which form is my favorite.

I remember reading so many books I couldn’t store them all. I have a shelf of my collections in my office. We have two large shelves upstairs on the landing with my husbands and some of my overflow and a shelf of cooking and craft books in my craft room. My husband only reads paper books so now we have an overflow setting in baskets on the bedroom floor and our closet.  I had debated on a Kindle forever. My sister-in -law said her son loved his. I had so many people tell me all the pluses. Easy access, cheaper books, less having to store the hard copies. It took a while then I finally asked for one for Christmas several years ago and fell in love immediately. I cannot imagine being without a Kindle. I am currently on my third. Yeah, I seem to wear them out pretty fast. So If I have to pick I guess I  go with an Ebook as I see that the most. My new iPhone has a great Kindle app and I find it just as easy to read as my kindle and more portable. Now my books are always with me and it’s awesome. I can read at any break I get.

Still, I love an audio book when I do chores, walk, garden or sit on the patio watching birds, squirrels, and the cats.

I keep saying I am going to get rid of my paper books to declutter my house but so far I cannot make myself give up my favorite collections so I haven’t given up on those either.

Dare to Hope Audio tour T.M.Smith Joel Leslie #M/Mromance #sogood

 
Tristan is the second oldest of the Brennan brothers and the odd man out. Most of the Brennan men have careers in law enforcement, but as a psychiatrist, Tristan chooses to help people in a different way. Quiet and restrained, he is content to hover in the background of his more gregarious brothers. Then he meets two men, each broken and damaged from losses beyond their control.
Gabriel Simenson is mourning his lover’s death. The random act of violence that took Gio’s life has left everyone at All Cocks reeling. The only thing keeping Gabe from drowning in misery is the friendship he’s forged with Micah, the newest model at All Cocks. He continues to struggle, and at the urging of his All Cocks family Gabe agrees to counseling with Tristan under one condition: Micah must go with him.
Micah Solo can relate to unbearable loss, having lost his leg and so much more in Iraq. The past two years he has been alone, adrift and vulnerable – the memories of war haunting his dreams, spilling over into his daily life. At All Cocks, Micah has found the acceptance he craves and the family he lost, but still he yearns for happiness and peace within.
The friendship between the three is instant, the mutual attraction evident. They circle each other, wanting more, yet unsure if it is truly possible. Is life the mundane reality they’ve each come to accept for themselves or do they dare to hope?
The All Cocks Stories is a series set within the world of online gay porn. Micah’s PTSD is told in detail, including flashbacks to his time in Iraq.

MY REVIEW

“Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous!”

Overall 5 Meows
Performance 5 meows
Story 5 meows
Where does Dare to Hope rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Way up at the top!

Which scene was your favorite?

Too many to mention, but if I do have to choose one, I will pick when Micah asked both Gabe and Tristan to make love to him at the same time. This usually isn’t my thing but T.M Smith wrote it so beautifully and Joel Leslie narrated it so passionately that it would set you heart and kindle on fire.

If you could take any character from Dare to Hope out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Hmm. Hard choice again. I will pick Tristan. I love a big man with a bit of scruff. I loved his accent. He is charming, attentive, patient, loving kind.

Any additional comments?

Dare to Hope is by far my favorite in this series. It was one of my favorites as a book, and Joel Leslie’s narration made it even better. He acted out each voice, gave each character a distinct accent and the sex scenes were done wth o much passion.

Dare to Hope is about two men with different types of PTSD. Gabe is suffering from the loss of his lover, Micah from the loss of his leg in the war. They both worked for All Cocks and became very close friends, bonding. Tristan is Gabe’s counselor and becomes Micah’s, and the three of them cannot get over the attraction they feel for each other.

Dare to Hope is a charming story and extremely well written. The characters are very well developed and likable, and the story line is interesting. You won’t want to put it down or turn it off once you start.

Love is Heartless (Love Can’t Series #2) by Kim Fielding Dreamspinner Press

4 Meows

254 pages MM Contemporary, PoliceProcedural, Mystery Suspense

Nevin Ng was raised in the foster system. He is foul-mouthed, bitter and a one night stand guy. He doesn’t do relationships. Heck, he doesn’t do monogamy. He is a police detective in the Aged division and also works with Manuel at Bright Hope a community for LGBTQ senior citizens.

Colin works for his father in land development. They buy old houses, tear them down, build townhouses to sell. They have a few rental homes that Colin takes care of. One of his tenants calls him to work on her plumbing, and he finds her beat nearly to death. He meets Detective Ng and sparks fly.

I enjoyed this story and the slow build between the two men. I liked Nevin’s snark and his nicknames for Colin and the internal struggle in Nevin.

Afraid to Fly (Anchor Point #2) by L.A. Witt RipTide Publishing

Meows 4  Purss 4 (sexy, sensual and hot)

Genre: Contemporary M/M,  military, two silver foxes, workplace romance. Pages 347

 This is a book two of a series but stands alone fine. I think Anchor point may be what ties it into a series. I have not read the first ( but added to my to Read list) and really enjoyed the book.

The two main characters are both in their Forties. Both Military men with PTSD and Travis also have a disabling injury. Both men are now confined to desk work.

Clint comes out at the Navy Ball in a big way and also dumps his boyfriend after because he can’t be around that much drinking. He finds out that Travis is also Bisexual and they hit it off. I guess you could add friends to lovers in the category.  I found the story good, the romance good and loved the dealing with trauma. In the beginning, it was a bit slow, and no real action happens. It’s just a good romance of two men dealing with a lot, and life.

Audio: Beneath the Stain Amy Lane  Nick J Russo  Audible

Rock band books aren’t my favorite but I heard so much about this I jumped at the chance to review it. Man am I glad I did. There is a lot of angst, but It’s worth it.

I think Nick J Russo brought so much passion to this story that you wouldn’t experience on your own. He didn’t just read the book. He became the characters. Each had their own voice, and the passion between Trav and Mackey was unfathomable. Nick made those love scenes with every breath, moan and whisper. He gave me shivers.

 Movie: I haven’t felt well, so there wasn’t many movies or TV this week.  We did watch a movie last night called  Rampage President Down.

I’ll keep my lips zipped on this one. It was like looking at a train wreck…I wanted to walk away but was stuck.  I think I needed eye-bleach after. There was lots of violence.

 

I hope you enjoyed my week in review. I hope you find some good books to read an audio or movie. If you had a favorite this week, you would like to share, post in comments. I am always looking for good entertainment! See ya Next week!

Service with a Smirk by Ariel Tachna  Dreamspinner Press

200 pages contemporary

4 meows 2 purrs

I like this book on many levels. First of all The May.December (older man?Younger man) trope is one of my all time favorites.  I also love broken men and Pascal is so sad. I rooted for him to find love again. I liked that they did not rush into anything and that each man at one time or other tried to move the relationship on. I also liked that Mathias, even though he was small and twinkish was unyielding, probably the stronger of the two. And the kicker was the writer ladies that were friends of Pascals.  Not to forget I love picturesque settings, and this is in Canada with a very French feeling.

PatchWork Paradise Indra Vaughn Craig  Beck Riptide Publishing Audible 

5 Meows 2 purrs

M/M Contemporary

Patchwork Paradise is such a sad but sweet story.  I cried so much, not all sad. There is twist after twist all the way to the end. It is definitely not predictable! I loved when Oliver changed Thomas baby first diaper. I loved Craig’s cooing voice when he did all the baby talk.

or the first sex scene with Thomas and Oliver. It was all really hot…then the baby cried. I loved it when Oliver told Thomas to go get the baby, he was going to get ice packs for his blue balls.

My Goodreads review   

Movie

We watched Deep Water Horizon this week.

4 Meows

It was Ok. There was a lot of action and seeing something based on reality was interesting. Mark Wahlberg starring in it didn’t hurt LOL

I hope you enjoyed my week in review. I hope you find some good books to read an audio or movie. If you had a favorite this week, you would like to share a post in comments. I am always looking for good entertainment! See ya Next week!
