Cat’s meow~Audio review~Opposites~TM Smith~ #giveaway #dreamcast

 

 

Opposites is now available on Audiobook 

Written by T.M. Smith

Narrated by Greg Boudreaux

In the year 2081, our planet survived global

warming on an apocalyptic scale. When the dust settled and the water receded,

Dr. Anthony Smith, one of only a few hundred survivors of GWI, started society

anew. Having come to the conclusion that injudicious breeding played a huge

role in the destruction of Earth as we knew it in the twenty first century, he

worked closely with other survivors to isolate the Dionysus gene: the gene has

the ability to manipulate human DNA to ensure that all male children be born

gay, and all female children be born lesbians. 

 

A new society was born

In the year 2300 Dr. Smith’s descendants are

ushering in the twenty fourth century having maintained control of the

government that still rules society. Twins, Aiya and Aiyan, are preparing to

meet their matches and take control of House Gaeland, the current ruling House.

But not everything is as it seems. 

 

Nature vs Nurture 

Love is Love… it knows no gender and doesn’t

conform to restrictions or boundaries. Aiyan has found his soul mate in Kaden,

the prince of House Devi, that he is matched with and eventually marries. But

when the person Aiya falls in love with tests the boundaries put in place after

GWI, all hell breaks loose. And in the midst of one secret unraveling, another

will emerge. There is a growing anomaly that threatens to destroy over two

hundred years of progression. This anomaly is known as Opposites. 

*WARNING* Opposites is an Adult Dystopian

majorly M/M novel that contains explicit sexual content and relationships

between gay, lesbian and straight couples. There are brief scenes of violence.

I asked  TM if Opposites were made into a movie who would  he choice for Raven and Tanis be. Yes, I had a favorite couple! Here is her reply.

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by Cat’s blog today for her stop on the Opposites Audiobook tour. I decided very early on while writing Opposites exactly how I envisioned Raven and Tanis. Raven is the fictional form of one of my best friends, Lucien. Lu is a Celtic Minister who believes in his own kind of faith, and he believes very strongly in that faith. I wanted to capture that in Raven, and I think I did with Lu’s help. The only thing he asked when I started trying to figure out the physical likeness for Raven was… 1)Make sure it’s someone who is not only gay, but openly gay. 2)Make me look good! The first person that came to mind was Adam Lambert. So he became my vision of Raven.

I think He was the perfect choice. Adam is exaxtly how i pictured Raven. 

 

Tanis took a bit longer. I originally considered Alex O’Loughlin, an actor most notably known for his role of Steve McGarrett on Hawaii Five-O. Lu thought that Alex might be too old to be believable as Raven’s man, so the search continued. Several other people in, I found an image of a model on facebook, Daniel Osborne. He’s blonde haired, blue eyed, tatted up and very beautiful. Lu agreed, so Dan became my Tanis. One of these days, Hollywood will come calling, and when they do I already have my cast for this sexy pairing… The Priest and his Warrior from Greece!

myreview
5 meows 5 purrs
Opposites is a sexy post-apocalypse story where to keep the world from over populating a scientist invented genes where people were born gay. The houses made matches and inside those matches births were  chosen. This was to assure a perfect world and keep the genes gay. But there is an anomaly called Opposites that was beginning to become more frequent.
This is a very intriguing story with a great concept. The characters are all interesting and there are quite a few of them, as we meet the parents, and the main characters of this story.
Greg Boudreaux or Tremblay is one of  my very favorite narrators. If I see his name it goes right on my wish list. He made and already sexy story come to life and even sexier if that is at all possible.
But enough of my rambling…go buy a copy and listen for yourself!
If you like post-apocalyptic stories, a new world, prearranged marriages, and super sexy romance with some hot man-sex you will love this!

Naughty Cupid by Deanna Wadsworth #mustread #sofunny #giveaway

banner300x250

Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Deanna Wadsworth author of NAUGHTY CUPID

Hi, Deanna, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about your favorite rainy day activity.

Thank you for hosing me on my NAUGHTY CUPID blog tour. It’s been fun visiting all of these wonderful websites and talking to new people. You asked me about my favorite rainy day activity and the list could be any number of things.

I adore a rainy afternoon with no reason to leave the house. From the gentle patter of rain on the windows to the booming thunder of a storm, every moment of a rainy day is perfect. Like a respite from the obligations of life, when it’s raining no one judges you for having an all-day Game of Thrones marathon in your pajamas while sipping on a good pinot grigio. It’s also peaceful and soothing just to snuggle up with a good book and a hot cup of coffee while God waters the earth. When I was little my mom always told us that thunder was the angels bowling LOL. The sciencey reason it thunders isn’t nearly as fun, though.

As an avid gardener, I appreciate so much more than just the beauty of the rain, and the solitude it affords us. I love how much greener everything becomes after a lightning storm. You may not know this, but lightening puts nitrogen into the soil and plants will flourish after a night of lightening.

When it rains I like to stay inside, let the rain wash away my worries and lose myself in the world of fiction, whether in a good book or a great movie. Add coffee or wine, someone you love, a cuddly pet and you have the makings of a perfect day!

 The name’s Lio, and you may have read the beginning of my story in A Cupid’s Wager. Well, hold on to you hats, because there’s more to tell about your favorite cupid working in the Gay Division of the Inter-Dimensional Association of Cupids.

Remember Ethan? That Aztec god of the winds who busted me shooting a closeted human with a gay lust arrow? Yeah, I haven’t been able to forget him either. Even though I have a rule against getting it on with other supernaturals—especially ones working for the Straight Division—my magic is drawn to Ethan and all his tattoos and piercings in a way I cannot control.

But after that night of mind-numbing sex, now I gotta face my evil ex-boyfriend and a suspension by the IDAC for “misplacing” arrows. They took my quiver, and I have to figure out how to get my arrow privileges back before they’re taken forever.

Ethan seems to think he can help me, but I don’t know how anybody can make this cupid believe in love again.

MY REVIEW

5 Meows 4 purrs

I love this cover. Every time I see a Paul Richmond cover, I have learned to expect a sweet and fun story. Naughty Cupid is my first book by Deanna Wadsworth and won’t be my last. I plan to check out A Cupid’s Wager very soon!  I loved her voice and writing style, and this story was one of those you couldn’t put down. Word of warning: I wouldn’t read in public as you will be chuckling and laughing out loud like a loon!

Lio is a cupid but doesn’t believe in true love after being humiliated, hurt, dejected and nearly drained of his powers. He has miss used his lust arrows to out men he knew were closeted gays ( I won’t tell you how he knows for sure, but this was so funny) one too many times, this time disrupting a true love arrow shot by a Love God. Ethan has his secret’s as well and wants to try to help Lio when he may lose his arrows forever, but can Lio trust anyone ever again…especially a straight love God?

Like I said above, I laughed so much through this story. The characters are all so much fun, especially Lio’s best friend, Walter.  I loved Lio’s sense of humor and many references to pop culture and Ethan’s more serious side and not quite getting it. There are a couple twists and turns and some steamy hot man-sex so why not give this one a chance.

If you love mythology, Gods and cupids, pop culture, humor and some hot man-sex, you will love this!

A Little More Naughty Cupid:

“You know the lust arrows only work if the person’s mind is open to it. I shot Raymond with a Class 4 gay lust arrow. They only have a little more juice than a few tequila shooters. They can’t make a straight man gay.”

“But that is what you are trying to do,” Ethan shot back.

“You know it doesn’t work that way.”

To prove my point, I materialized one of my long purple arrows.

Without warning, I stabbed Ethan in the heart with it.

“Oww!”

The arrow exploded in a burst of light and glittering purple dust, the blast blowing our hair back.

When the magic cleared, the stunned expression on Ethan’s face cracked me up. “Now, do you spontaneously wanna suck my cock?”

He gaped at me like I’d lost my ever-lovin’ mind. “What did you do that for?”

“Don’t get your panties in a wad. Class 4G lusts can’t make someone gay. You’re born that way. There’s even a Lady Gaga song to prove it.”

His big hand rubbed where I’d hit him. “You should not have done that, Lio. You have no idea what you just did.”

“I already shot an unauthorized arrow tonight, what’s one more? Besides, unless you’re gay, it won’t affect you.” I waggled my brows. “So what are you so worried about? Got sumthin’ you wanna confess?”

He actually growled at me.

“Build a bridge,” I told him. “If anyone has a right to be pissed off here, it’s me. The gaydar says Raymond is gay, yet you asshats over in SD decided to shoot him and a woman with true love arrows. Talk about a douche move. Forcing the man to lie to himself and everyone about who he is. And how is that fair to do to the girl? She’s a victim too!”

“The IDAC does not consider a gaydar to be a reliable source of information,” he said, completely ignoring the more-than-valid complaint.

Humans were born with a variety of sexualities, but there were only a limited variety of arrows to complement the IDAC’s narrow-minded ideas on sexuality. In a nutshell, there were gay arrows and the naturally more powerful straight arrows. Don’t get me started on the complexities of targeting anybody not gay or straight. I was glad not to be assigned to those fledgling subdivisions of GD because they often had to work with the jerks in SD. However, both primary divisions had arrows for love (red) and lust (purple), each with four different strength ratings—one being the most potent. In other words, the Class 1S love Ethan had been using was the highest strength straight love arrow—aka the most powerful of all arrows.

Hence his being so pissed at me.

“I’m not gonna sit here and argue politics with you. We both know I’m already in trouble for an unauthorized arrow launch. Make that two,” I amended, gesturing to his chest. “Why the fuck do you think I don’t have love arrow privileges anymore? Hell, the sparks our collision set off will raise questions too. I’m already busted. Fine! I’m ready to face whatever comes my way. When I set out to do this, I knew there were risks.”

“Set out to do this?” he repeated, looking utterly appalled. “You mean you have done this before?”

I swallowed, feeling like a child being scolded. “Only on unattached people.”

“I cannot believe you would do that to someone! A person’s decision to come out is deeply personal. You have no right, Lio! None!”

Yeah, but the Fates did, I supposed. Who put those bitches in charge, anyway?

I didn’t know what Ethan’s big fat beef might be—besides the one in his pants—but I had to get my ass out of this sling. “Like I said, I’m already busted. If you think Raymond isn’t gay, let’s just follow them”—I pointed to my unauthorized mark and the guy with him, both of them deliberately brushing hips and shoulders as they walked down the street—“and see what happens. If he changes his mind, I’ll admit the gaydar is inaccurate, I’ll turn myself in for interrupting your mark, and you won’t even get in trouble.”

He glared. “And if your arrow works, I suppose you get to walk?”

“If I’m right, and those two dudes get their freak on, you can do what you want with me.” Too bad that wouldn’t be those full lips around my dick. “But you give me back the gaydar and you don’t tell anyone I have it or that I was here.”

Ethan looked at the device in his hand as if it would explode or jump up and bite his cock off. His expression would’ve been funny if this weren’t so serious. He seemed to be weighing something in his mind, and I felt his anger retracting. Still, an aura of incredible danger and masculinity wafted about him. My heart thumped wildly, both from nerves and the exotic spiciness of his skin. Knowing his ferocious appearance was tempered with an innate goodness made me a little hot.

Okay, a lot hot.

Though it went against every rule I made for myself, I couldn’t stop picturing Ethan naked. Sure, I was as horny as any cupid, but something about this Aztec amplified all of my senses far more than usual—especially the ones below the waist.

“I cannot believe I am saying this,” Ethan said slowly. “But I will give you one chance. One. But if you ruin that man’s life, your ass is mine.”

“Talk dirty to me,” I purred.

He lowered dark brows. “You are not funny.”

“I think I’m a really fun guy. Especially when I’m naked.” I couldn’t help myself and gave him a suggestive wink. “And whoever said a little dick up the ass would ruin a man’s life? Ever try it? The orgasms are un-fucking-believable.”

Ethan curled his lip and growled at me like an angry cat.

“Jeesh, sorry I mentioned it.”

He seized my arm in a viselike grip. “Come.”

If I’d known going with Ethan would turn my world upside down, I would’ve grabbed my gaydar and run, taking my chances with my boss, the IDAC, and even the Fates. Because I wasn’t prepared for what was coming my way.

Not at all.

Cat’s Meow~~Reviews That Purr~~GhostWriters @Mickey

Cat's Meow Reviews That purr books

Hi Ya’ll Welcome back to the Cat’s Meow~~Reviews that Purr.  You will see a few changes in how I am doing things now, but I will talk about that in a later post. Today I have the pleasure of having the amazing Mickey J Corrigan. She has a very unique voice and her stories are interesting and have a touch of humor. Take a look at the excerpt and my review and I will let you judge for yourself. I asked Mickey where she got her inspiration for this story. Here is what she told me. 

My Inspiration for the story:
The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger is one of my all-time favorite novels. When the author died in 2010, I wondered if his estate would release the novels he had held back from publication during his lifetime. Rumors had circulated for years about a sequel to his classic story about a young man hanging out in Manhattan while slowly (and somehow hilariously) falling apart. In 2013, a documentary on the reclusive author was released and the producers claimed his unpublished novels would follow. So far, they haven’t.
In my novel The Ghostwriters, a young writer meets the ghost of the famous novelist JD Balinger, who convinces her to help him write a sequel to his classic novel The Watcher in the Sky. Jacy McMasters has some issues she’s dealing with, and they come to a head while she’s ghostwriting with her ghost.

I have done quite a bit of ghostwriting, some for minor celebrities. I can imagine what it would be like to ghostwrite with a top author. Not easy! Especially if he was dead.

perf5.000x8.000.indd

Publisher: The Wild Rose Press

Length: 194 pages

Genre: Mainstream Thriller (New Adult, Contemporary Romance, Psychological Thriller)

 

Jacy McMasters is ghostwriting a book with a famous author—a recently deceased one. A struggling writer living in Manhattan, Jacy is the first to admit she’s a terrific liar and a screw-up. Then the ghost of the famous novelist JD Balinger asks her to “channel” a follow-up to his classic coming of age book The Watcher in the Sky. Along with her new boyfriend, a bear of a man who has no patience for mind games, the ghost in Jacy’s head forces her to confront a lifetime of secrets—dark secrets. Secrets she’s been keeping from herself.

When I woke up the next day, I felt awful. My eyes were swollen shut so I had to tumble out of bed and crawl through clustering dust-devils to the bathroom. I’d suffered worse hangovers after overindulging, but there was a real sharp edge to this one. When I steamed my eyes open with a hot wash cloth, I noticed it right away.

I was still hallucinating.

“You look bad, Jacy my girl,” JD said from his cross-legged perch on my wicker laundry hamper. “First thing we need to do is ease back on the hard core boozing.”

I screamed once or twice before he uncrossed his spidery limbs and said, “Don’t be a ninny. You know who I am, that I come from you. From your own deranged mind. So what’s the sense of yelling, disturbing your neighbors?”

He had a point. I calmed a little and said, “You may be an illusion, my illusion. But that does not mean you can stay in my bathroom while I shower.”

He shrugged, brushed by me on his way out. “I’ll make coffee. And when you come out, all fresh and bright-eyed, we’ll discuss how I can save you. Help dislodge you from your habitual cycle of wanton, destructive choices. No more dabbling. Time for you to shed your loser image, child. It is high time. Take my word.”

MY REVIEW

5 purrs

The Ghostwriters is a fun story with some surprising twists and lots of humor. I loved the unique characters and how Jacy wasn’t a perfect, happy-go-lucky girl, but depressed, down on her luck and a lush. She felt realistic. As I was reading, there were things that slightly confused me, but as the story went on it explained itself.

If you are looking for something different, likes the mysterious, ghosts, a touch of romance, girls down on their luck, lots of twists and turns you will love this.

Cat’s Meow~Fame and Fortune by T.M. Smith #audiotour #gayromance

 

Fame and Fortune

 

An All Cocks Story book #2

 

 

 

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 a 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, they didn’t even realize something was missing, until they met a broken young man that needed a family.

 

Matthew Carlson was homeless, jobless and broken. He’d been on his own since he was sixteen when he ran away from home after being brutally assaulted by several other 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 usually visible on the outside. But when he walks into All Cocks, both Victor and Andrew see them, they also see him. Can three men that didn’t even realize 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.*

myreview
5 Meows 4 purrs
In Fame and Fortune, we get Mattie’s story and its bittersweet. We also find out how he gets involved with Victor and Andrew. I love Mathew. He is very young but he is strong even though he has had a rough past. I also love How Victor and Andrew see right through his defenses and take him under their wings.

I loved Joel Leslie’s narration. he has a nice, relaxed voice and he nailed Victor’s Romanian accent.

If you like interesting characters, male models,pornstars, Gay romance, and of course, some hot man-sex, you will love this one. I highly recommend this series and this book!
