Blurb

Sometimes you need to go back to your past, in order to move on to your future.

Jax Hunter has spent the last ten years trying to forget his first love Nathan Steele—and the brutal betrayal that derailed everything he’d worked so hard for. Jax has finally gotten his life back together, when Nathan returns to deliver another blow – his company is set to bulldoze the bar he’s built from nothing.

Ever since that summer in high school, Nathan has been denying his feelings for Jax—the only person he’s ever loved. Nathan knows Jax might never forgive him, but when Nathan’s uncle is murdered and Nathan might be next on the hit-list, Jax is the only one he can turn to.

Jax still doesn’t trust Nathan—not with his bar, and for damn sure, not with his heart. But the more time they spend together, the harder it is to resist the undeniable passion between them. Can they overcome their past hurts and learn to trust each other again? Or will another betrayal tear them apart forever?

 

MY Review

5 meows 5 purrs

Jax and Nate were best friends, but at the young age of 17 Nates father caught them together and set Jax up to get him expelled from the prestigious school they were attending, thus ruining Jax’s dreams of going to college. Instead, he fought his way( literally through the MMA) to earn enough  to open a bar. The Goat is his dream but also a place where the community knows they can come and be themselves. Now once again the Steele’s are out to ruin him by buying the Goat and all the businesses in the area to tear down and make apartments for the wealthy.

Nate decides to be the one to talk to him, hoping he could make things right from the past. The chemistry is still there and though Nate is straight he can’t help his feelings for Jax…the only person he has truly loved. He goes to his Uncle to try to talk them out of  taking the goat from Jax and find his uncle dead, with Jax standing over him.( read the excerpt below. You get a taste fo what happens here. It may shock you.) Jax swears he isn’t the murderer and when they find Nate’s apartment ransacked they fear Nate may be next.

I loved both Jax and Nate. I liked the struggle between them and the chemistry. You could feel it crackle every time you read  it. The mystery was OK. But I think the main purpose of it was to push Jax and Nate together. I like gay for you stories and this one was awesome and hot.

If you like, millionaires, bartenders, opposites attract, second chances, some mystery/suspense and some scorching man-sex this is for you. I cannot wait for the next book.

Excerpt One

Nathan

Can’t say I was surprised that he was still angry at me after what had happened between us in high school. I had no clue if he’d killed my uncle, but at the moment I’d do and say pretty much anything to get out of here alive. And giving Jax a blow job? I might be telling myself it was to try to earn his trust so I could keep him from killing me, but deep down I knew the truth, even if I refused to really accept it. I wanted this. Wanted him. Just like I’d wanted him all those years ago.

I might not be into any guy but Jax, but blowing him wasn’t exactly a hardship. Hell, it wasn’t like I hadn’t fantasized about it often enough over the last decade. We may not have had very many intimate moments, but they’d been enough to haunt my every need. I’d loved sucking him off—playing with his smooth, hard cock. Jax had made me want things I’d never wanted before—and he made me feel things that had since remained elusive.

But now, with his rigid cock brushing against my lips, I felt myself go hard, and I wanted him with a need I’d never felt for any other man or woman.

And then I reminded myself that I was duct-taped to a fucking chair, and he’d held a gun to me, just moments earlier. Yet none of it mattered, because I was going to give him a fucking stellar blow job, and maybe with a bit of luck, I’d be able to convince him to do the right thing and let me go.

“Fuck, Jax…you taste so good,” I whispered, leaning forward to suck the tip of his hungry erection. “I want you. I’ve always wanted you.”

Jax’s expression was hard to read—always had been. And yet the needy groan that rumbled at his throat was telling enough. He eased his hips forward, thrusting his cock past my lips, as he reached down to cup my face. “Nathan…”

The feel of his hand against my cheek soothed me, reminded me of what had once been between us, before my father put an end to it, and made sure I’d never see Jax again. But as my erection pressed against my jeans, searching Jax out, I pushed away any pleasure I was getting from this. He was my kidnapper, for fuck’s sake, and I needed to find a way out of here before I ended up like my uncle. “I want more, Jax…please…untie me.”

Gunnar is one fight away from cruiserweight champion, and one flight of stairs away from true love.

When Gunnar left his ex, the current cruiserweight champion, two years earlier and moved back to his hometown, he knew he was passing up his chance to win the world. The last thing he wants is to meet his ex in the ring while the world dubs it a grudge match. For the most part, he’s content with traveling. Being known as the casino champ isn’t a bad gig. He doesn’t realize he’s missing anything. That is, until Gunnar comes to a stranger’s rescue in the rain.

Liam isn’t a stranger at all. Not only has he been living upstairs from Gunnar for the past two years, they went to high school together. Since Liam’s changed a lot in the past few years, he doesn’t hold it against Gunnar for not recognizing him.

HOW ABOUT A LITTLE MORE CLINCH

Gunnar scratched his number out on a scrap of paper sitting on his end table. “Here. You’ll need this.”

Liam took it, but not without question. “I will?”

Gunnar smirked. “Yeah. You definitely will.” No one in their right mind could miss the sexual promise dripping from Gunnar’s every word.

Stuffing the paper in the front pocket of his jeans, Liam flashed an innocent smile. “You’re right. I’m always doing stupid shit like I did yesterday. It might not be a bad idea to have someone close by I can count on. I’d hate for Kaz to have to drive all the way in from Miami just to bring my keys again. Luckily, he was halfway between there and here yesterday, shopping.” He moved back toward the door. Gunnar watched it happen. His confusion made him slow to react. Liam baffled the hell out of Gunnar.

He chose a more direct approach since hinting obviously wasn’t working. “Of course, I’m here if you need a dry place again, but I’m even better at giving a wet place. I’d love for you to use my number for other reasons as well. Preferably for naughty pics. Yeah, I wouldn’t turn those down.”

“Oh,” Liam said, smiling. “I love those memes people post on Facebook. I’ll see if I can find something good for you.”

This was ridiculous. He had to know if Liam was fucking with him or genuinely uninterested. Gunnar didn’t think he was conceited or anything. Maybe he was. A little. Fuck, he worked hard on his body and tried to always be confident. People liked confident men, right? Something seemed wrong about Liam’s reaction to Gunnar’s every attempt at flirting with him. He focused on the vent in the ceiling above Liam’s head.

“Damn. What’s up with that vent? I keep opening it, and it keeps closing itself somehow.” Without giving Liam time to answer or figure out what he was talking about, Gunnar crowded Liam’s space, reaching above the other man’s head. He didn’t stop until barely an inch separated them, leaving Liam nowhere to go. Attempting to make his story look good, Gunnar toyed with the vent, opening it all the way and thanking God for the low ceilings in his apartment. He’d have to fix the vent later or it would be hotter than hell in his bedroom, but it was worth it if he could force Liam’s hand.

Without moving away, Gunnar glanced down. Liam was craning his neck in an obvious attempt at inspecting the problem. His expression hadn’t changed in the least. But goddamn, his blue eyes were even more amazing up close. They were an odd shade of smoky blue.

“Something probably needs to be tightened.” Liam’s hands came to rest on Gunnar’s sides, as if the man had braced himself to see around Gunnar’s large frame and get at the problem. Nothing separated them. It was skin-on-skin, and Gunnar went hard at the sensation. He couldn’t stop staring at Liam’s face. Liam finally focused on Gunnar. The corners of his mouth lifted in a sweet smile before falling. Liam shrugged.

“Really. I’m just talking out of my ass. I know nothing about heat and air ventilation.”

Gunnar tried clinging to a brain cell. It didn’t happen. The words fell from his lips without his permission.

“Wow. You really are clueless, aren’t you?”

Liam opened his mouth. Gunnar could see him gearing up to argue. Without giving Liam a chance, Gunnar lowered his head and covered Liam’s mouth with his. He’d meant to make a point. That was all. In all honesty, he expected Liam to shove him away or knee him in the balls. Instead, Liam’s tongue touched his. Gunnar’s mind went blank. He moved an inch closer, intent on deepening their kiss. Liam snagged the back of Gunnar’s hair, beating him to the punch. Gunnar’s bottom lip stung as Liam’s teeth sank into it. He wanted the moment to last forever. The instant that thought hit, Gunnar pulled away. He already knew what his life lacked. The last thing Gunnar needed was another fantasy he couldn’t keep.

Liam didn’t miss a beat. “As much as I want to tell you how it isn’t nice to call someone clueless, I’m too curious to know why you’d say that.”

The confusion written on Liam’s face made Gunnar want to growl. Even now, after that hot-as-hell kiss, Liam didn’t seem to realize how he affected Gunnar. Gunnar pried Liam’s fingers from his hair before dragging Liam’s hand down his body, until Liam’s fingers shaped Gunnar’s erection.

“Because you do this to me, and you don’t even know it.”

MY REVIEW

5 meows  3 purrs

I have added several more of Charity’s books to my to read pile

Gunnar has lived below Liam for two years. He has always wondered why the man barely acknowledged him and put it off as him being straight or purely disinterest.
Liam had a thing for Gunnar since they were in school but when Gunnar moved below him and didn’t remember him at all, he didn’t want to get hurt again, so he avoided him. Then one night he locks his cell phone and keys in his car and its pouring rain. Gunnar comes to his rescue. Gunnar is smitten but the attractive man he rescued from the rain and determined to get to know him better. He is shocked when he finds out he is Liam, his high school sweetheart.

So as you see this is a sweet story of second chances, friends to lovers but wait! I didn’t give away spoilers. The story is about fighting ( pun intended since Gunnar is a boxer) to get back one you loved years ago and the other fighting to keep him. There are other exes involved and some cute kids.
If you love boxing, make strippers, bouncers, exes, second chances, friends to lovers, cute kids and a sweet romance that you can’t put down once you start… You will love this.

Title:  PROMISES – PART 2

Series: BOUNTY HUNTERS #1

M/M GAY ROMANCE CONTEMPORARY

Edited by: Tina Adamski

Cover Artist – Jay Aheer

PAGE COUNT – 280

Release Date: March 20th, 2015

 

Roman “Quick” Webb is one badass bounty hunter on the crime-filled streets of Atlanta. He’s fearless when it comes to carrying out his dangerous job alongside his longtime best friend and business partner, Duke. However, there is one thing that has begun to cause Quick concern and it’s the dreadful thought of living out the rest of his life alone. Seeing his best friend and his son fall in love and sharing the special connection that only true soulmates can, has made him all the more aware of what’s lacking in his life.
Love
Dr. Cayson Chauncey has been wildly attracted to the big, tattooed hunter for almost a year, ever since he performed the surgery that saved Quick’s best friend’s life. Cayson must’ve mistaken Quick’s gratitude for something more, because the one time he tried to make his desires known, he was harshly rebuffed and left on the man’s doorstep feeling stupid for hitting on an obviously very straight man.
Cayson never dated a man who was willing to come out of hiding and be with him. Now at almost forty, Cayson is intent on no longer being anyone’s dirty secret. Having experienced countless disappointments, and having taken a stand not to fall for any more tricks, Cayson is more than a little skeptical when Quick comes around asking for a second chance to prove himself. The gorgeous man had already made it clear he was definitely uninterested in Cayson… or so he’d thought.
Dr. Chauncey stirred up Quick’s suppressed, most carnal desires from a place deep down inside of him. He’d reacted so badly the first time that now his sexy surgeon wanted nothing to do with him. It was going to take a fair amount of patience and a whole lot of wooing involved as Quick sets out to convince Cayson that he’s worth another chance and that he is the brave lover who Cayson has been looking for.
With a scorned ex and a very dangerous job thrown into the mix, Cayson’s happiness and all of Quick’s promises may not be as easy to keep as they’d hoped.

MY REVIEW 5 Meows–% Purrs ( hot man-sex and adult language)

Isn’t the cover fabulous? I want Roman(Quick) for myself!

Darn these books get better and better! Sexy surgeons, hot bounty hunters, action, romance and hot man-sex what more could you ask for? I thought the first one was good but this one was even better.  I loved Quick. He is tough as nails on the outside and at work but  this book shows a vulnerability and makes him even more relatable. You could feel his need for something more, the longing in him and in Chauncey as well. I loved how the Dr is not too feminine but a contrast to  Quick. A.E really laid these two men out raw for us.  Then we had Dr. Joe.  He really made things scary, amping up the action in the story.  There is a lot of suspense as well as the romance.  then there is the sex. All I can say is wow!

If you like bounty hunters, Dr’s, action, suspense, drama, romance and hot man-sex this is definitely a book for you.  I do suggest you read book one first but it’s not totally necessary but you will see how quick and Chauncey met and the circumstance, plus more about his son and Duke that is mentioned a lot.  I personally feel you would enjoy this book better if you read the first.

Cat’s Meow~~Reviews That Purr~~#Romancespecial~~Forever Love by Melissa Keir

cats-meow-banner.jpg

Hi Y’all!  We are rounding out this month of romance in the air specials with Melissa Keir and her book Forever Love. I asked Melissa what her five favorite  movies to watch on Valentines day. Here are her picks.

The five best movies to watch on Valentine’s Day….There are so many movies to choose from. I am only touching the tip of the romantic movie iceberg. You may have your own favorite romantic Valentine’s Day movie, and watching it with the one you love while feeding each other is a perfect way to spend your Valentine’s Day.

  1. Ghost– Love doesn’t have to end with death. In Ghost, we find out that love never dies. You will want to recreate the clay scene but use whipped cream. Easier clean up and edible!
  2. The Notebook-This movie is about a relationship that lasts a lifetime. I love how they weave the tale between the past to the present. It made me remember my crush on James Garner. It gives me hope that even when I’m old and grey, my husband will still be by my side.
  3. West Side Story– A modern day Romeo and Juliet tale with music and dancing. Opposites attract and friends battle as young love blossoms among the city streets. I couldn’t decide if I was more Natalie Wood or Rita Moreno, so I often did both! And the songs will stay with you long after the movie ends.
  4. Love Actually– It’s about more than just love but also the mistakes me make in relationships. My heart broke for Emma Thompson’s character whose husband didn’t see the value in her but chose a shiny new toy. There’s a couple for everyone to relate to in this movie.
  5. PS I Love You– Love is sometimes letting go. Two words- Gerard Butler. His sexy accent and the way he helps his wife through the roughest moment of her life, make him a dream come true. Not to mention, singing while wearing suspenders and silky boxers…*sigh*. Have your Valentine recreate the fun dance. You will thank me.

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.

Great picks Melisssa I agree with them all. I will add in my favorite…Best Friends Wedding. and a Bed Of Roses

A little more Forever Love:

“I remember your best friends. They loved to torment me in high school. I think their nickname for me was inaccurate, Sinful Syndie. Too bad I wasn’t sinful, I might have had more dates,” I added sarcastically.

“I missed that—your sense of humor and possessive nature. No one was like you. Do you remember the night of your big sleepover? When you got so jealous that you froze that girl’s bra because she came on to me? I wish I could have seen her face! Syn, there were times you were hell on wheels.” I gave him a shove. He started to laugh as my face warmed from embarrassment, and continued talking. “I’m glad you’re back. I missed you.”

“I missed you too. You were my best friend. I’m sure if my mom was alive today she would’ve already had out those old photos of us in the sandbox and been rambling on about how cute we were.”

 

Meet Melissa

Melissa Keir has always wanted to be an author when she wasn’t hoping for a career as a race car driver.  Her love of books was instilled by her mother and grandparents who were avid readers. She’d often sneak books away from them so that she could fantasize about those strong alpha males and plucky heroines. In middle school and high school, Melissa used to write sappy love poems and shared them with her friends and still has those poems today! In college her writing changed to sarcastic musings on life as well as poems with a modern twist on fairy tales and won awards for her writing. You can find many of these musings along with her latest releases on her website and blog.

Melissa doesn’t believe in down time.  She’s always keeping busy. Melissa is a wife and mother, an elementary school teacher, a book reviewer, owner of a publishing company as well as an author. Her home blends two families and is a lot like the Brady Bunch, without Alice—a large grocery bill, tons of dirty dishes and a mound of laundry. She loves to write stories that feature happy endings and is often seen plotting her next story.

I hope you enjoyed The interview, blurb and review.  Next month’s Theme is getting lucky! I hope I am lucky enough to find some leprechauns and magic for us.

What is one of your favorite movies for Valentine’s or just any romantic date?
