Love – Loss – Friendship – Family
The All Cocks stories
 

There comes a time in every man’s life where he has to make a choice between what is right and what is easy. 


Born and raised in Fort Worth Texas by open-minded parents, Dean Anderson realized early in life he was attracted to both sexes. Equal opportunity, he picked his lovers based on personality and common interests. He met Maggie in college, fell in love, got married and started a family. And they were happy…until they weren’t. 


Adam Chase’s mother is South African, his father American military working at the US Embassy in Pretoria, South Africa. His parents’ positions in the South African and American governments awarded Adam dual citizenship, and he attended University in America, at Berkley. In America, Adam is lives openly as a gay man, something that could get him killed in his mother’s home country. He met his husband, Patrick Carter, at college and they too were happy…until Patrick died. 


Two lives converge, and it would seem fate is giving them each a second chance at happiness, together. Dean stays in New York and moves into the apartment his son, Dusty, shares with his boyfriend David. He and Adam are quickly welcomed into All Cocks’ vastly growing family. And then one phone call changes everything. 


The men of All Cocks learn that death is just another part of life, a road everyone travels eventually. Choices are made, decisions that change their lives irrevocably. They rally together, drawing strength from each other as their close-knit family experiences the best and worst life has to offer. But that’s what families do, right?

MY REVIEW

5 meows 3 purrs (hot and sensual)

Choices and Changes is book 7 in the All Cocks series. You could probably read this alone, but I suggest you read the series to better understand who all the characters are.

Speaking of characters, I love stories about older men. Dean andAdam are perfect examples. Dean is Dusty on of the All Cocks models father. He has recently divorced and moved from Texas to New York. He is bi-sexual, and his divorce and move is amicable. Actually, his ex is pregnant with her new boyfriend, and they are all good friends.
Adam is a Dr specializing in HIV patients. One night Dusty and his dad are at the home the All Cocks owners and Dean meets Adam. They hit it off immediately.
I love this series, and each book gets better and better. This one is a tear-jerker. Just as you think things are smooth sailing then Bam! Something happens that leaves you in shock.
You get cameos from some of the other characters in the series which is always good. I love the diversity of the characters and how well developed they are. I also love watching some of them grow as the series goes on too. Adam and Dean are so sexy and made me swoon.
The story line is interesting, and you have the romance between Adam and Dean then you have a few subplots.
If you like a good tear jerker, older men, Drs, porn models, good comradery, a touch of humor and a great all over romance wth some hot man-sex you will love this book.

What others are saying about Choices and Changes…
The chemistry between them was immediate and often entertaining. Dialogue and interaction was strong and suitable for the given situations. The plot was dynamic and had several secondary things happening in the background. There is a tragic twist, so be prepared if you are a more sensitive reader and/or crier. Some new characters were added on top of the entire All Cocks cast. There were a few conflicts that were managed maturely and in a timely manner. Predictability was low. The conclusion was solid and satisfying. Adam and Dean are given their HEA and many others also find additional happiness. 
Tina from Happily Ever Chapter
 
This series continues and we get to see everyone from the past as don’t forget they are a Family. I love this family!

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.

Choices and Changes by T M Smith #coverreveal #m/mromance

Choices and Changes

All Cocks stories, book 7 


There comes a time in every man’s life where he has to make a choice between what is right, and what is easy. 


Born and raised in Fort Worth Texas by extremely open minded parents, Dean Anderson realized early in life that he was attracted to both sexes. He never picked his lovers because of the parts they did, or didn’t have, more so based on personality and common interests. He met Maggie in college, fell in love, got married and started a family. And they were happy… until they weren’t.

Adam Chase’s life was slightly different. His mother is South African, his father American military working at the US Embassy in Pretoria, South Africa. His parent’s positions in the South African and American governments awarded Adam dual citizenship, so he decided to attend University in America, Berkley to be exact. In America, Adam is able to live openly as a gay man, something that could get him killed in his mother’s home country. He met his husband, Patrick Carter, at college and they too were happy… until Patrick died.

Two lives converge when they cross paths and, it would seem, fate is giving them both a second chance at happiness. Dean decides to stay in New York and moves into the apartment his son, Dusty, shares with his boyfriend David. He and Adam are quickly welcomed into All Cocks vastly growing family. One phone call changes everything.

The men of All Cocks are about to learn that death is just another part of life, a road everyone travels eventually. They rally together, drawing strength from each other as their close knit family experiences the best, and the worst, life has to offer. Choices are made, decisions that will change their lives irrevocably. But that’s what families do, right?

A totally NSFW Excerpt from Choices and Changes…

Dean
lay on his back in Adam’s large, four poster bed. Naked as the day he was born
and as nervous as a fucking virgin on prom night. So much for taking things slow… He thought, just before all
common sense flew out the window with the softest brush of Adam’s fingers over
his hip. His hands were gripping the pillow under his head so tight, it was a
wonder he hadn’t torn it to shreds. The only thing keeping him calm was Adam.
His eyes roamed over every square inch of Dean’s body, drinking in his fill
until Dean thought he might splinter apart, just from the intensity of Adam’s
gaze.
How
the hell had they gone from, “Come back
to my house for some quiet time. We can watch a movie, have a drink and talk
more, there’s still a lot we don’t know about each other.”
Adam suggested as
they were leaving the restaurant to, “Oh
my god in heaven if you don’t put your dick in my ass right the fuck now, I may
die from sheer need!”
was anybody’s guess. But the minute the key turned in
the lock and Adam swung the front door open, Dean was pushed up against it, his
mouth plundered by the pirate actively seeking the treasure that was Dean’s
tonsils. From there it was a frenzied rush to remove any and all barriers that
were stopping them from skin to skin contact. There was a trail of shirts, a couple
of popped buttons, pants and god only knew what else leading from the door to
the bed. And so, here they were, both naked and Dean splayed out on Adam’s
ginormous bed, wanton and ready to be fucked… thoroughly and hard.
 
“Oh
god, Adam, please,” He wasn’t above begging.

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.
