Fame and Fortune…Excerpt , Review, Giveaway

Fame and Fortune
An All Cocks Story– book #2
Love should be multiplied, not divided!

 

Welcome to the All Cocks house!

All Cocks house

 

Hello everyone, and thank you, Cathy, for hosting me today. I thought I’d share some insight into the house on Mamaroneck Island that Victor, Andrew, and Mattie call home. The models refer to it as the All Cocks house, because it is their home base outside of the studio in the city. When I started writing the series, I knew I wanted to base it in NYC, but I wanted the throuple to have a home away from all the madness in the city. I researched outlying areas that were driving distance to the city while being quaint and maybe a little secluded. I settled on Mamaroneck because I wanted a house on the water, I mean how much fun will I have writing scenes that are set on water?!

An excerpt from Fame and Fortune

 When Victor first brought Andrew out to the house they now owned on Mamaroneck Island he thought it was too much, too big for just the two of them. Victor had come prepared for that reaction, though, explaining his plan as they walked from room to room. How Victor wanted their small company to become an extended family of sorts. The models could stay with them and shoot out at the house sometimes. The attic could be their office away from the office. “There are seven bedrooms Victor, what the fuck are we going to do with seven bedrooms?” Andrew asked, still a little overwhelmed at the thought of investing in such a large home.

“We set one up for shooting scenes here, the other we use for models. They stay for shoot or if they need home. Fame, fortune and a family Andrew, this is what I am wanting for you, for us.” Victor led Andrew into the master bedroom to a picnic basket, blanket and pillows all set up beside the fireplace where a fire was already burning beautifully. They ate and talked, Andrew finally coming around to the idea and sharing things he wanted to do to the home with Victor.

 Yeah it’s a big ass house, but Victor holds to his promise to fill it. Before it’s all said and done, I think they might even have a few little ones running up and down the stairs of their large estate. But that’s waaaaaaaay down the road. For now I think this throuple will be happy with the different models that come and stay at the house sporadically, their extended family of sorts. Can’t you just imagine the holiday parties? I can and I want to go!

 

Victor Dimir
moved to America with his traditional Romanian parents when he was just a
child. His Romani parents taught him their traditions and how to be a shrewd
business man, but it was the attention of a classmate at school that taught
teenage Victor about his sexuality. When he came out to his parents he knew it
would be difficult for them to understand, but he never expected them to disown
him.
Andrew Jones
grew up with a single mom and his grandmother teaching him about life, he had
an absentee father at best. The only thing the man ever did for Andy that stuck
was buy him a camera for his thirteenth birthday. When Andrew went off to
college on a scholarship to study photo journalism, he wound up falling in love
with his Romanian roommate.
They became
inseparable and wound up starting their own business together: a gay porn
website where people could go and watch romantic gay porn instead of the rough
and tough, or wham bam thank you man crap that was flooding the internet at
that time. After ten years together they were still perfectly happy, not
realizing something was missing, until they met a broken young man that needed
a family.
Matthew Carlson
was homeless, jobless and broken. At sixteen he ran away from home after being
brutally assaulted by several young men that he thought were his friends, and
then being told he brought it on himself for being gay by his parents. Matthew
has done a lot of things these last few years just to get by. When he finds the
flyer for All Cocks, he decides to call and see where it leads. What has he got
to lose?
Matthew has deep
rooted scars that aren’t visible on the outside to most. But when he walks into
All Cocks, both Victor and Andrew can see the darkness in his eyes; they also
see him. Can three men that did not know they needed each other get past the
stigma of society to find a place of happiness, together?
*Advisory warning: This story contains a scene of
sexual assault.*

My review for  Fame and Fortune 

Meows 4  Purrs ( so hot you need a cold shower)

Fame and fortune is a very sweet romance between three loving men.  Though Victor and Andrew have been partners for ten years, they both felt something for the sweet angelic looking boy Mattie when he showed up for a job. Both men could tell he was broken and not ready for porn shoots. When Mattie finally insists they set him up, and none of them was prepared for Mattie’s reaction. Now Mattie has to tell Victor and Andrew about his past abuse.

I must warn you if you’re susceptible to triggers, there are back flashes of gang rape and date rape drugs. I will say That TM handled it with finesse, and the story has a lot of light moments and sensual loving sex to soften the harsh scenes.

I loved all the characters and the main storyline of the coming to term with the change in their relationship.

I will say that the story begins moving fast and skipping quickly through years. I would have liked to have seen more of the things that happened than short paragraphs telling us about them. There were a few places where the author told us of things that happened between other characters ( from the first book) that I personally felt should have been left out and this book the first. Now having said that; I still loved this story and all of these men and cannot wait for the next book–Jon and Kory–and all the others. (Yes I read all the small print at the end that tells what’s coming soon!)

I highly recommend this if you like gay new adult romance, angst, threesomes, menage, hot man-sex and allover fun, sexy romance!

Manic Monday..Heading Home

Today will be bittersweet. I have been here in Hannibal since June 24th helping my dad after eye surgery. It will be sad going home, but I will get to see the grandkids and my cats, fish and Molly.

I do dread the near 5-hour ride, but I will read or crochet.

This weekend I tried using my silhouette cutter on my own to make  a set of cups for the nice man and woman across the hall that let me use their internet access.

They are not perfect, but not bad either. It took me a couple hours and half a sheet of vinyl, but I got them done.

I took the cups and two of the crochet dish towels to the couple that let me use their internet and they loved  it. I got dads cookie jar restocked and made him a batch of dough into balls so he can make his own cookies after I leave.  I went to the fabric shop to get some fabric and decided to only get some buttons since I am not sure  what I would be making.  It has been such an emotional day.

My father in law is in the hospital so I think we maybe heading to Arkansas so it may be another week before I can get back to my writing, but I hope to get back to it soon .

I will miss dad, My brother and his family a lot. I love this town, but it’s time to go home.

I hope you are having a great summer

 

Indian Summer

Hello, everyone. Man is it hot here in Missouri, and I am not even home where it is usually a bit hotter and more humid.  This is my last weekend at Dad’s.

Yesterday there was a cool Native American show down by the Caverns. There wasn’t a lot there, but what was there was pretty cool. As soon as we walked up I saw the most beautiful Native American Doll. I had to take her home to my collection.

There were many people dressed in costumes, and we got there around lunch where they were cooking their meals on campfires and in cast iron pots.

Fun at the Park

Hello everyone!  I still don’t have any crafts this week since I am still at dads. Yesterday my brother called and invited me on a picnic. He rounded up the kids, picked me up, then we stopped at the store for fried chicken and sodas. I added potato salad chips and a fruit tray and we were set.

The park they chose had a nice Pavillion near playground equipment  for the little guys, near the sand volleyball  court and lots of room to play ball or frisbee.

After dinner we played sand volleyball  which  I haven’t played Volleyball in over 15 years. With my disabilities,  it wasn’t easy but we e didn’t really keep score…especially  after the opposite  team had us like 30 to 4 lol. The little guys liked digging in the sand.

After a break, we gathered for baseball. I actually hit the ball a couple times, got tagged out on first the first time then I made two bases the next time. Later actally made one run in.

There is a cute cabin for t h e little fellows to climb in. They got to stealing and we found  the culprit was wasps. My brother went to chase them out but I think they chased him out. One got him on the shoulder.

There I s a hiking trail t h ere as well but we were all tired as nd it was time to head back since the oldest (my niece) had to go to work.

It was a very fun day and I am surprised I didn’t wake up so she I couldn’t move.

Do you like picnics? What is your favorite  picnic food and activity?

 

Exploding spoons!

DSC00234

Hi, everyone!  It was a beautiful but hot day today. We took our morning walk, and there was a huge Corvette show downtown today. It was fun seeing all these cool car. Unfortunately, I didn’t bring my camera or phone along.

If you follow me on Facebook you are probably aware of my knack for exploding eggs and burning teapots. Tonight at dad’s I did an entirely new trick. I exploded a plastic spoon.

Please do not try this at home because yes some hot grease flew. I or no one else got hurt.

My brother and his family came over dads. My Sister-in-law was taking the two little boys to the park. New Luke wanted to crochet, and the other Luke went with his mom to help out with the little guys. Brother  watched the game with dad..

Dad has a perfect kitchen for a cooking show or entertaining since it opens into the living area so I could stand at the stove and cook and visit. I was on my last three stuffed Jalapenos when I heard some popping sounds. I took it for hot grease or escaped cheese. I heard a few more pops, this time it sounded more like popcorn.  Before I had time to think, the spoon made a loud pop. I hopped back and escaped the grease drops.

Just in case you still find it hard to believe here is the spoon. I learned my lesson to use a metal spoon.
