Cat’s Meow~reviews that purrr~Snapped @ttcbooksandmore #giveaway

Retribution Runs Deep

The line between retribution and vengeance is often just as thin as the line between love and hate. 
 
Cillian feels his life was stolen from him and is out for revenge. Grieving and seeking retribution for the death of his twin sister, August is easy prey. Cillian latches onto his grief and feeds into it, using the Outkast as a weapon to strike out at the family that abandoned him. When August learns the truth behind his sister’s death, everything changes.


Hector arrives at House Gaeland for a wedding, only to wind up in the middle of an unexpected war between brothers. He finds himself inexplicably drawn to an Outkast with hair as fiery as his temper. The immediate, intense, and mutual attraction stirs up an entirely different set of issues. To be together, August and Hector will need to thwart the most evil of plans and accomplish the most daring of rescues, all before Cirian follows through with his threat to drop August off the side of a cliff. 


The people of House Gaeland have endured much, and yet, there is more trouble on the horizon. A birth and a wedding are far too much happiness for the universe to allow, so to level the playing field, the devil must add his cards to the deck. Violence begets violence and Cirian is perfectly willing to take a dagger to his brother, if need be. Will he feel the same if the blood spilled belongs to someone much closer to his heart? 


Snapped is the third book in the Opposites series, the series must be read in order. It is an adult, dystopian majorly M/M series that encompasses all manners of relationships (including M/F and F/F). In this world logic is irrelevant, love is key, and things get broken—just ask Aiyan and Kaden.

 

*Warning* there is a brief mention of sexual assault, though not in detail.

Live For Love @AuthorTMSmith #AllCocks #mmcontemporary

Join me in welcoming the latest book in the All Cocks Series, Live for Love. 

 

Live for Love, An All Cocks story book 5 
I am lucky I got a  Song and Scene from Live to Love

 

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by Cathy’s blog today for her stop on the ‘Live for Love’ blog tour! This book starts in a dark place, but it was necessary to truly convey to readers where Beau is, why he is so hesitant to enter into a relationship with William. I felt like I needed to let this particular cat out of the bag, so to speak, from the start. It sets the stage for things to come later in the book.

 

The first song on the Playlist is Eli Lieb and Steve Grand, I can’t look away from you. This song moved me from the first time I heard it; it’s actually about a couple breaking up, but so many of the words, the continuity of the song really convey the Prologue of ‘Live for Love’.

Here is the link for the song

(grab some tissues)

 

and the Prologue…

 

*It would be remiss if I weren’t to warn you to grab a Kleenex*

 

Let me insert here…GRAB A BOX OF TISSUES

Prologue

 

The wind whipped through the trees, a light rain trailing on its heels. Tiny drops of water bounced off the coffin, the sound echoing in Beau’s ears more like the loud bang of a drum than the soft pitter, patter of the rain. There he stood, rooted in place, his long hair matting to his head as the rain and wind picked up. He could hear the soft whispers of sorrow and condolences surrounding him, everyone else in attendance tucked under the large tent behind him. An arm wrapped around his waist, briefly pulling Beau’s attention away from the casket that held his dead lover.

 

He looked down at Alma, Izaiah’s mother, managing a small smile. The large-brimmed black hat she wore shielded her face from the now-insistent rain. She leaned up as Beau bent, allowing her to kiss his cheek. “He’s at peace now, Beauregard. I know it’s hard to let go, but you must, Cher. Now, my boy would be none too pleased if I let you catch your death out in dis weather. Come, back under the tent wit ya.”

 

Beau laughed at that; he could visualize her words as she said them: Izzie glaring at him with a pointed stare, cussing him with that mixture of Cajun, French and Creole that first drew Beau to the man that night so many years ago. Beau and a group of friends were drinking at Arnaud’s Bar in the French Quarter when one of the customers—drunk obviously—got a little handsy with the waitress. The waiter, a tall, lithe man with skin as black as night grabbed the drunk and tossed him out on his ass. A litany of colorful words spoken in three different languages fell from the gorgeous guy’s lips. When he turned, apologizing to the patrons of the bar, his gaze lingered a few seconds longer as his eyes landed on Beau.

 

That was it; just one look and Beau was hooked. They had survived so much. Beau’s homophobic father’s rants and threats to gut them both and toss their bleeding bodies into Lake Pontchartrain for the gators to feast on. His demanding schedule while in law school. Izzie’s subsequent battle with drugs and alcohol to fill the void he felt with Beau being gone so much to obtain his law degree. Rehab, racism and bigotry from people they had called friends and family—some because of their interracial relationship, some because of the homosexual aspect, and still others that looked down on them for both. They had survived it all for over a decade.

 

In the end it was the disease that took his lover from him, his once beautiful body ravaged with infection to the point that Izzie was unrecognizable. His battle with addiction left a permanent scar on their lives, Izzie having contracted HIV from sharing needles during the heroin phase of his downward spiral. Beau contracted the virus from his lover as well, both of them unaware of the danger until it was too late. While Beau was able to manage his illness, Izzie’s immune system was too weak, his fragile body succumbing to full blown AIDS and eventually, death.

 

“You hear me boy? I said let’s go!” Alma barked, and the reality of where they were, what was happening, slammed into him like a freight train. He nodded, his gaze drawn back to the simple black coffin once more.

 

Pulling the red rose from the breast pocket of his suit coat, Beau knelt next to the coffin and gently placed the flower on top. “I hope you are finally at peace, Mon Chéri,” he whispered.

 

His body fought back when Beau stood, his legs quivering, his soul straining to stay with its other half. Somehow Beau managed to put one foot in front of the other and follow Alma down the steep hill to the car that sat waiting for them. His clothing was soaked, the rain still dripping off the ends of his long hair as the car pulled away. Beau shivered, chilled to the bone—a chill he felt certain would haunt him until the end of his days.

 

‘Live for Love’ at its core is a love story, a story of passion and romance, but there is a struggle there as well. Let’s face it, the things in life that you work hardest for are usually the things worth having. The usual camaraderie between the models, friends and family is there, the antics you’ve come to know and love from the men of All Cocks INC. The newest member of the family just needs to open his heart to the possibility of love.

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.

 

 
 
 
 myreview
Live for Love is book  5 in the All Cocks Series. You don’t have to read the all in order but I do recommend you read Dare to Hope book 4 where Beau is introduced.Every book in the series gets better and better.
  Beau has come to New York to  begin a new life, owns a local bar and runs a teen shelter for the LGBT community.
William has had a thing for the big beautiful bartender since he first saw him and doesn’t plan to give up winning him over, but will Beau’s secret change things?
Live for Love is a very poignant story. It is a beautifully written story of a man living HIV positive and mourning. I can’t tell you how many times I cried reading this book. I loved both Beau and William.  I loved the story lines especially what I learned about men living with HIV.
TM Smith has a way of bringing her characters to life and Beau is larger than life.
If you are looking for a heartwarming, beautiful romance you must read this one!

Cat’s Meow~~Rockin It with Morticia Knight

 

Bryan and Aubrey’s story continues in Rockin’ it Forever

Can the touch of a rock god last forever?

 

Music journalist Bryan Gallagher’s life has completely changed in an unexpected way. Not only has he snagged a dream assignment as the memoirist to alternative music’s rock superstar Aubrey King, but he’s also promised to give the beautiful and enigmatic musician a chance for them to forge a relationship. It’s all very overwhelming for Bryan since, up until he spent a sexually charged day and night with Aubrey, Bryan has never even dreamed of being with a man.
Aubrey is completely smitten with the boyishly handsome, young rock writer, Bryan. After their instant spark grows into something more, Aubrey is desperate to keep Bryan by his side for always. He’s promised Bryan that their love is for real, that Bryan isn’t simply one of his rock star conquests.
Their road isn’t an easy one, though. Despite their deepening bond and growing need for each other, other factors intrude. Neither Aubrey nor Bryan is ready to come out, and their relationship needs to remain a carefully guarded secret. In addition, Aubrey has to answer to the demands of his profession and Bryan has to traverse the shifting waters between his personal and business relationship with his famous lover.
Then a secret is revealed and everything in their joint world implodes. When a love is so strong that two men can barely take a breath without thinking of the other, will that be enough to bridge the loss of trust? The only way they can rock their love forever is if Aubrey can reach Bryan before it’s too late.
Buy links: Amazon | Pride Publishing

Early response to Rockin’ it Forever…
 
“This book has it all: rocker musicians, incredible sexual chemistry, struggles with being in the closet, doubts regarding the relationship, intense feelings, and the amazing HEA with a forever kind of love.”

 

Excerpt from Rockin’ it Forever…
 
Aubrey Fucking King.
Bryan hid what he was certain would be a goofy grin behind his fingers. He didn’t need the older woman in the seat next to him on the plane to think he’d lost his entire mind. But the mutual masturbation with Aubrey in the shower that morning was emblazoned in his memory. Their inability to keep their hands off each other had left Bryan with precious little time to get to his hotel, grab his things then make it to the airport without missing his flight. Being trapped on the airplane for his journey from the west to the east coast was the first chance he’d had to relax and dwell on the previous couple of days filled with utter craziness. However, his immediate thoughts had landed on the visual of their slickened cocks rubbing together.
It was difficult to decide which event had him more thrilled, confused, elated, freaked out or stunned—that he’d had sex with his rock star idol or that he’d had sex with a man. He shook his head, unable to help himself.
“I’m sorry, but it’s inflight rules.”
Bryan jerked his chin up. “Huh?”
The flight attendant pointed at his laptop. “I said, you need to stow that for takeoff.”
“Oh! Sorry, I…uh, of course.”
His cheeks heated as if the pretty blonde attendant had any idea what sort of filthy thoughts had been drifting through his mind. She was the sort of woman he’d always been drawn to—confident, attractive, feminine. Another thought tried to wriggle its way into his ponderings, but he preferred putting it off for the time being. Everything had been so heated, so urgent between him and Aubrey—it had barely allowed him a moment to process the emerging lust and connection they now shared.
That was all real, right?
He idly played with the collar of his long-sleeved cotton shirt that was made up of a block plaid pattern in varying shades of blues and greens. Aubrey had commented on the colors, had said he liked the way Bryan’s lighter hair and deep blue eyes contrasted with them. Bryan allowed his fingers to travel under the fabric, to run across his clavicle. He couldn’t feel it—feel them—but he knew they were there. The marks Aubrey had sucked up on his skin. Then there’d been the rather prominent one Aubrey had asked Bryan to put on him so that everyone would know that Bryan was the one to whom Aubrey belonged.
It was silly, really, but it’d also been very sweet. People might surmise that Aubrey had been with someone, but they would have no idea it was rock journalist Bryan Gallagher. Bryan attempted to tamp down yet another unsettling thought and realized he was going to run out of space to hide from everything in his mind in an awfully short time.
No one will know because Aubrey won’t tell anyone he was with a man. But then again, neither will I.

Cat’s Meow~~ Reviews that Purr Talk Dirty to Me by Jessie G~~On #tour with #pridepromotions

Cat's Meow Reviews That purr books

Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Jessie G author of Talk Dirty to Me. Hi Jessie, thank you for agreeing to this interview.

Banner300x250

Why are your books set in South Florida? I moved to Florida from NY in 1989 and lived in Coral Springs for 20 years. To say that I loved the whole South Florida vibe is an understatement. Places like Miami and Fort Myers, or further north like Palm Beach and Orlando and Tampa, are all places I feel comfortable writing about because I’ve spent significant time in each. I may tweak here or there to fit a story, but putting my guys in a familiar setting makes me more confident.

What are some references you used while writing this book? For research, you mean? I talk to people, research online, and read books as necessary. Then I adjust and tweak until “reality” matches my fantasy.

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? I love to read and having been making up my own stories for over thirty years. I don’t remember the exactly first moment, but then I rarely remember what I had for breakfast. Suffice it to say, this has been a lifelong dream.

What do your plans for future projects include? There are 3 more full length books and 2 novellas planned for Sizzling Miami, and then it will be over. There are at least 3 more full length books and 1 novella in Devils Pride right now, but I expect that to expand. And then I have the Forgotten Soldier series which will get 1 more novella and 4 full length novels before it ends.

If you could bring back one TV show, what would it be and why? Welcome Back Kotter. There are so many reasons: Vinny Barbarino, Freddy Boom Boom Washington, and Horshack…now I have to go see if it’s on Netflix!

Talk Dirty To Me - Final - 400 x 600

Author Name: Jessie G. Books

 Book Name: Talk Dirty to Me

Series: Devils Pride MC

Book: Two

Series must be read in order

Publisher: Jessie G. Books Inc.

Cover Artist: Andrew Reyna, Dynamic Craft Studios

Pages or Words: 78,000 words

Categories: Bisexual, Contemporary, Erotica, M/M Romance, Mystery, Romance (Please note: Snake’s bisexuality is only mentioned. It is not gone into.)

 

 

As a secret agent for the DEA, Snake’s gone deep into Devils Pride MC with the hope of bringing down the head of Miami’s lucrative drug trade and finds himself saddled with the club’s volatile and secretive SA instead. Unfortunately, after years as partners doing shit neither of them wanted to do for reasons neither of them felt comfortable sharing, Snake considers Trick his best friend. Now he’ll do anything to repair the damage his own necessary lies did to their friendship because, while Trick may have walked away from the MC, Snake needs someone he trusts to have his back.

Meanwhile, Snake’s contact at the DEA has him tied up in knots. The sexy voice and inappropriate comments have him walking around with a permanent set of blue balls. Life undercover is lonely and he lives for every phone call, but his own personal Deep Throat is skittish about committing to a date once Snake returns to headquarters. As far as Snake’s concerned, they only have one shot to build something together and he’s not willing to waste it.

Greg knows he’s not Snake’s type, or anyone’s for that matter. Former love interests called him plain, chubby, and boring. More comfortable in his tech cave than with people, he’s a grade A nerd who isn’t exactly GQ material. Normally he would never be brave enough to flirt with anyone—much less the very hot and very dangerous ginger who’d been starring in his nightly fantasies—but Snake needed something to keep him from getting lost undercover. What started out as a helping hand quickly became an integral part of their relationship—if one could call a five year phone conversation a relationship—and Greg is terrified that once Snake’s sees the wizard behind the curtain, he’ll lose the only man he’s ever loved.

Now the DEA has called Snake home to plan the next stage of the mission, leaving Greg no more places to hide. When fantasy and reality collide, will it be everything Snake hopes for or everything Greg fears? The trick will be staying alive long enough to figure out the answer.

Excerpt: R/X Rated Excerpt ( I chose the racier excerpt so if you don’t like explicit sex  you may want to skip this part, But I thought it was so sexy I couldn’t help myself)

“That sexy voice and those incredible brains are a potent combination.” There was a sigh and a muffled groan, reminding Greg why they were talking at close to three in the morning. “Lucky for you, my ego’s big enough to handle the challenge.”

“Your ego or your dick?” Just saying it made his mouth water and he’d give anything to see it, touch it, taste it…

“Damn, Sunshine, you gonna groan like that when I’m shoving my big ego down your throat?” The rough dirty talk was more like the Gene he knew and loved.

Yeah, as hopeless as it was, there was no other word for the feelings that ran deep and true inside him. And it was hopeless. While not conventionally handsome, Gene was everything he could ever want in a man—tall, strong, rugged, smart, and deadly—and damn him for being a ginger to boot. The type of man who had no trouble finding a willing body to fuck. The type of man who would never look twice at an out of shape, curly-haired, glasses-wearing geek. But that was his secret and as long as Gene didn’t know exactly what he looked like, he was able to hold on to the fantasy for a little while longer.

“You know I will.” He was groaning again just thinking about getting his lips anywhere near Gene’s body. “I can feel you fisting my hair, holding me still while you make me take every inch.”

“Fuck yeah, I’d grab two fistfuls and fuck that dirty mouth the way it deserves,” Gene promised. “You want that, don’t you, Sunshine? To be manhandled until your throat is raw and your lips are swollen.”

Greg fisted his own aching cock, dragging his palm from balls to tip. What he wouldn’t give for that just once. “More than anything.”

“My dirty little Valentine.” Gene’s voice was ragged and full of satisfaction. “Get your toy, dirty boy, I’m dying to pound that tight ass until you’re screaming my name.”

There was no embarrassment as he reached for the long, thick vibrating dildo he’d already prepared in anticipation of this phone call. He wanted Gene too much to allow embarrassment to stop him from experiencing whatever he could with the man. “Tell me…tell me how you want me. On my back? On my knees?”

“On your back so I can see your face,” Gene purred and Greg felt his heart skip another beat. His dirtiest fantasies had nothing on phone sex with Gene. The real thing would probably kill him.

Meet the Jessie G:

Like many readers, the dream of being a writer has been with me a long time. After three decades of trying, I’d begun to doubt. Thanks to social media, I followed my favorite authors hoping to glean some words of wisdom as I pounded out half-formed ideas with alarming regularity. Two repetitive themes emerged: to be a great writer you must read a lot and your butt must be in the chair every day like it’s a job. The more you write, the easier it will be to write and the better you will be at writing. I took that advice to heart and write every day. With three series in the works and a full schedule of releases planned for the next two years, it’s been amazing to have made this dream my reality.

I am a firm believer in marriage equality, love at first sight, power dynamics, and happily ever after. I’m a lover of strong secondary characters, and series filled with families—biological or chosen. All are themes you’ll find throughout my books.

Cat’s Meow~~#Reviews That Purr~~Trainwreck by Michele Michael Rakes~~

Cat's Meow Reviews That purr books

Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Michele Micheal “Mikey” Rakes, author of Trainwreck the series.

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

I’m a Pacific Northwest native who has been climbing trees to sit and read books since I was small. Love storytelling and had always dreamed of being an author…or an Egyptologist…and then a paleontologist. Archaeology was to be my dream job, but never quite made it there in this life. Perhaps in the next?

Trainwreck the series is about a guy who is beyond down on his luck. He’s a wreck, but he can’t even get killing himself right. A police detective, specifically an undercover narcotics officer who has been accused of stealing contraband, Vincent Sweetwater is forced to work homicide until the investigation is complete.

Meanwhile, his home life is in shambles. He lives with his estranged wife, but sleeps in his dead daughters bed so he can feel close to her…he can hear her voice at times, and can smell her on the sheets.

We meet him the night before his first day back to work and when the day comes, he’s confronted with a case involving a missing person found dead on a beach. Vince hates dead bodies and isn’t happy with his boss for sending him out on the case. A case which pulls Vince back into his former life. A secret life involving a gay man and his skills with a whip. To further compound things, Vince is punishing himself through his addiction to sex and masochism.

Books One and Two are out and I’m editing number three currently. The entire series is written, plus a sequel called Surviving Adam.

  • Talk to us about your characters in this book. What makes them unique?

Vincent Sweetwater is a masochistic sex addicted tough guy from a shitty background and all he wants is to either be dead or have his daughter back. Confronted with the fact he can’t be dead or have his daughter back, he tries to mend all the pieces of himself. His foster brother, Nick Sarafino, followed him into law enforcement, is his partner on the job. Nick helps to keep Vince sane. Mica Sweetwater, Vince’s wife and fellow foster child, just wants her husband back. She’s always known she wasn’t enough for Vince, but that has never mattered to Mica. They both struggle to move on after the death of their only child.

A mysterious man from Vince’s past, Gregory Dunne, cares about Vince, but for his own sanity he leaves the man alone. Until Vince show’s on doorstep and can no longer be ignored.

The serial killer Vince hunts, is also a man from his past, and Vince can’t quell the feelings the murder victims bring to a boil inside him.

  • What was one of the most surprising things you learned in getting your book from start to publish?

Well, Trainwreck was written in six months in 2010 and was 480k words. The time it took to edit and get comfortable with breaking it up, I wrote two short stories and two novels. Saving Kane and Fourth and Long were published with Loose Id. Two more novels are scheduled for that series, one of which is 80% complete.

So, I guess the surprising thing is there are folks who want to read my stories.

  • Have you ever gone to a convention? If so, how was it? If not, do you think it’s something you’d like to do in the future?

I’ve been to the one in Seattle. It was fun. I wasn’t a participant, but perhaps one of these days I will go a convention as a participant.

  • Would you like to be a full-time writer?

Oh hell yeah, but right now I’ve got bills to pay and mouths to feed. Ultimately, it would be a dream come true. There are so many stories chomping at the bit to get outta of my nugget, but my job is a demanding full time affair. Over- time is mandatory and my writing has to take a back seat.

  • Design the ultimate pizza.

I made the ultimate pizza this weekend. Homemade pizza dough with basil and spices mixed in, with a basil pesto/light marinara sauce, and 6 Italian cheese blend. The final topper is the mozzarella. I use a 50/50 mix of fresh mozzarella and low-moisture skim; makes a perfect cheese pizza. Then I topped it with fresh minced garlic, diced tomatoes, and purple onion.

Hi y’all! Welcome back to Cat’s Meow~~Reviews that Purr. Today we have with us Michel Michael Rakes with Trainwreck. I chose this because I wanted something a bit out of my comfort zone. Something a bit grizzly and I do like a good mystery/ suspense from time to time. When I read this blurb I had to read the book.

Detective Sergeant Vincent Sweetwater hates dead bodies. That’s why he’s an undercover narc and not a homicide dick. So why is he standing on a sandy beach in California staring at a lifeless body—oh yeah, the suicide attempt. Lieutenant Hanson is making a statement. Something about life worth living. Shows what he knows.

As Vince examines the tortured body, he feels an empathy and déjà vu for the victim, her wounds are similar to scars he has only a vague memory receiving. An intense desire to find her killer fills his queasy belly as a dark game of cat and mouse begins.

The young woman’s death forces Vince back into a secret life dominated by sex, perversion, and sadomasochism. Estranged from his wife he still loves and longing for the man who possessed him once, Vince buries his torment deep inside meaningless sex.

*Warning: This book contains adult content and situations. NOT FOR THE SQUEAMISH.

A little more Trainwreck—I had three to pick from and I chose the most morbid.

The room fell silent and he turned back to the freezer. His hand hovered lovingly over the lid before he lifted it. “Hey, pretty. I know what to do with you now. You’re going to meet the son of an old friend.”

The girl had dead-fish eyes. Half-lidded, green once upon a time, they stared unseeing from a frost glittered corpse. Hair like sunburnt grass pricked her high cheekbones and full lips. He smoothed it back stiffly. The realization this would be the last time he felt her youthful body rushed through him like a phantom out of the dark. He was almost surprised at her lack of life.

On a shelf across the room was a black tarp, which he spread on the floor. With singular effort he struggled to get the partially frozen corpse from the freezer. She landed with a sick thud. The man apologized to her as though she were still living, stroking her stiff hair soothingly. He started to roll her in the black plastic, cocooning her in a final darkness, to be reborn from the chrysalis in the morning sunlight. Only then would Vincent Sweetwater come to know her and whom she represented.
