SYNOPSIS:

An Enemies to Lovers
Shifter, Vampire True Mates story.

Justice Volkov is the youngest Alpha Zenith to ever lead the wolf shifters. Following in his father’s large paw prints was a responsibility he met head on. Now at age thirty-three, he is alpha of the alphas. As a direct descendant of the original Siberian pack, his wolf is bigger and stronger than Justice, himself is sometimes able to control.

“His wolf howled long and hard but Justice kept it inside. It felt like a bass drum beating against his rib cage. The harsh breaths, angry snarls and the determined pacing inside him was overtaking him. All the while… his mate kept calling.”

Justice takes his role of leadership and his legacy very seriously. He has little time for romance, not to mention a true mate. His packs are his priority. With a human government trying to regulate them, an uprising of rogue shifters, and a violent team of scientists trying to experiment on them, Justice has his hands way too full.

Chadwick ‘Wick’ Bentley is not enthusiastic when the captain of his escort tells him he has to leave his comfortable London home and go back to the States. As the Vampire King, he has no choice but to get his species back in line before they cause anymore chaos. At over two-hundred years old, Wick is no one to trifle with, but his smooth, charismatic manner makes him quite unique, despite the negative reputation vampires have. Wick has had nothing but time up to this point. He doesn’t feel the need to make issues pressing. Nothing is urgent in his life. Until he meets Justice. His beloved.

“Natural enemies can’t be mates.” Or so Justice thought. He knows his skepticism and rejection is hurting his mate, so while he fights their connection, Wick gets help from a source very close to Justice to help him win his beloved’s heart. Wick is a force all on his own, but when he’s blessed with a special gift from the Mother herself, not even Justice’s powerful wolf can prevent the prophesy from being fulfilled.

This story DOES NOT contain/mention MPREG.
No multiple pairings. It does not end on a cliffhanger and has an HEA.

Warning: This book is MM paranormal: If you DO NOT like hot, alpha men shifting into large wolves, or vampires feeding from their mates, this may not be your read.

MY REVIEW

4 Meows and 5 purrs

Cover love: This cover is sexy and I can see both Justice and Wick perfectly.

. I love A.E. Via andVampires and Shifters. So I was thrilled to get a chance for all three rolled up in one. I am going to do this a little different. There are some great characters in this book beginning with Justice, the Alpha Zenith of all wolf-shifters.

 

Then we have Wick the vampire king.

 

They are brought together when the wolves and vampires begin fighting and kill an innocent police officer. They find out that they are not only mates but true mates.

Together they have to find out who is behind the uprising and why while dealing with two Alphas becoming mates.

This story is so good. not only did I love the characters but the plot was intriguing and of course the sex was smokin hot. I have been looking for a shifter or Vampire book that is out of the norm and finally, I get both in one.

This is the first of a series so there is a lot of backstory and buildup for each character. I felt this could have been cut down a bit and the would have like to have seen more of the actual action of the plot instead of it being told how things ended up. . However saying this I loved the romance and cannot wait to see the other stories in this series.

If you like shifters, vampires, enemies to lovers, true mates and some hot man-sex you will like this one.

ABOUT A.E. VIA

A.E. Via has been a best-selling author in the beautiful gay romance genre for four years now, but she’s no stranger to MM. She’s been an avid reader of LGBTQ Romance for over fifteen years before she picked up her laptop to place her own kiss on this genre. She’s also the founder and owner of Via Star Wings Books, having published a couple great new up and coming MM authors.

A.E. has a Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice from Virginia Wesleyan College that she used to start her own paralegal firm after she graduated in 2008. She spent five years preparing and filing bankruptcy petitions for struggling blue collar workers who couldn’t afford to file with a lawyer. It was a rewarding and satisfying career… but another path called to her. Writing.

A.E.’s writing embodies everything from hopelessly romantic to adventure, to scandalous. Stories that often include intriguing edges and twists that take readers to new, thought-provoking depths.

Now that she’s gotten over her 10 books published hump, she’s kind of known now for her hardcore, play rough and love hard, bad boy, alphas. However, she does like to push herself to step out of her comfort zone, exploring with different tropes, but she won’t push herself into a whole other genre. She’s head over heels for MM romance and has tons of more hot stories to tell.

Cat’s Meow~~Survival Game by Susan Mac Nicol #LGBT #giveaway

Let’s give a warm welcome to Susan Mac Nicol and her opinion on having online friends.

I want to talk a little bit about virtual friendships and making friends via social networks. Yep, those ones you make on Facebook and other social networking sites. Now some people have questioned the use of the word ‘friend’. They say, ‘How can someone you’ve never met be your ‘friend’, someone you only know over the ether waves and even then, you have no idea who they really are.  Man, woman, pervert, paedophile, priest, business man, serial killer—true, you have no idea who they really are. A lot of them you have no idea of their gender, and the number of nom de plumes abound. There are super heroes, book characters, film-stars and even cartoon characters.

The word friend is defined in the dictionary as ‘a person with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically one exclusive of sexual or family relations.’ It’s a very broad and sweeping definition and in my mind, it certainly applies to those people with whom we strike up a relationship over the social airwaves. I talk to people every day who I consider friends. People who share their stories and their lives with me, their ups and downs, their successes and failures, their daily strife and their dreams and aspirations. I have people I know in ‘real life’ who are not as good as friends as these others.  I have people who know me personally and face to face yet have never bought or read any of my books and aren’t really interested in what I do because it’s out of their comfort zone.

And then I have people who private message me, sending me personal voice messages of support and whenever I’m down, seem to pick up on it and let me know they are thinking of me.

Personally, I have made some of the best friends ever via Twitter and Facebook. People who are now face to face friends and where the relationship has developed to such an extent that it gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling.

I have wonderful fellow authors who give me advice on areas they are more expert in and others, professionals in their field, who do the same and give up their time to make a meaningful contribution to something I’ve written. I have fellow authors who give me their time and knowledge and expertise and counsel to try and make me a better and more marketable writer despite the fact they have their own books to promote and their own businesses and lives to live.

So the next time someone face to face says’ You and your stupid Facebook and Twitter friends, why don’t you get a proper life’, just look them in the eye, and say ‘Have you read my books, the ones I slave over? Have you helped me out recently when I was feeling down, sent me a funny message to cheer me up? Have you heard my tales of woe and actually listened instead of telling me all yours?”

If the answer is No, then don’t feel guilty for having this world of virtual friendships. Whatever keeps you going and happy, it’s worth it if it means something to you.

Thank you, Susan, for this lovely insight and I want to say thank you for being my friend even if we live countries apart!

Now for what we have all been waiting for! Book Nine in the Men of London series!

Survival Game

Men of London Book 9

by Susan Mac Nicol

Genre: M/M Romance

HANDLE…

Kyle Tripper has led an interesting life. Currently the manager of
London’s famous Club Delish, he used to be a croupier extraordinaire
in Las Vegas. But not everything in that life was so glamorous; his
ex was a piece of work. Now gun-shy, Kyle hopes there is someone
special out there for him, and secretly wishes it’s luscious
paramedic, Eric Kirby.
WITH CARE
Every day Eric Kirby goes through the motions. Yeah, he saves lives, and,
sure, he makes a difference, but he doesn’t feel it anymore – not
since he lost his one true. But, when he meets wild, flamboyant Kyle
Tripper and learns there’s a skittish, apprehensive man beneath the
bold façade, the best of Eric’s protective nature kicks in and opens
his heart to a new love.
How about a little more?

EXCERPT #2: (more Pg friendly)

 

Around ten that night, Eric walked into Club Delish to find it in full swing. He grinned wryly. Life carried on regardless of the owner being in hospital.

 

Determined to find Kyle, Eric manoeuvred through the writhing throng of half-naked, sweaty bodies, pouting drag queens, and men in various stages of grinding and sex play on the dance floor. He had a feeling he knew where to look.

 

Sure enough, Kyle was in Ryan’s office, standing with arms folded across his chest as he stared out of the large observation window down at the mass below. Eric couldn’t help but notice the strain of Kyle’s shirt across his shoulders, sleeves rolled up the elbows. His pert arse filled out his well-fitting trousers, one foot tapping to the faint strains of the music floating up from below. His hair colour had changed once again since Eric had seen him last. It was still a deep dark purple but now featured lilac streaks at the tips, and artful splashes that looked casually painted in.

 

Eric knocked and cleared his throat, announcing himself, knowing Kyle was skittish. Startling the man was the last thing he wanted.

 

“Kyle?” He waited as Kyle turned swiftly and a look of relief passed over his face when he saw it was Eric.

 

“Hi. What are you doing here?” Kyle moved away from the window and smiled softly. “Can’t keep away, huh?”

 

Eric walked into the room and laid his jacket on the chair. “I wanted to see how you were doing. And find out if there was any news about Ryan. I imagine things have been a little chaotic here today.”

 

Kyle waved a black fingernail-tipped hand. He had long fingers, and Eric had seen their dexterity first-hand when Kyle had done his card tricks. A fleeting flash of lust passed through Eric as he wondered what those fingers would feel like milking his cock.

 

 

                                                              MY Review 

Survival Game

Men of London Book 9

Susan Mac Nicol

 

Cover Love: I think the cover is delish, but the title being bold helped bring it together.
Susan Mac Nicols is an auto-buy author for me and I love the Men of London series. This one has a lot of Ryan and Mango from book 8 plus a few cameos from the other books, but the book stands alone nicely.
Survival Game is Kyle and Eric. Kyle’s ex was abusive and left him fearful and broken. he keeps his identity hidden hoping that he won’t come after him. he is careful of dating since he doesn’t want to get hurt again, both physically and emotionally.

Eric has a secret from his past as well. He lost the love of his life but something about Kyle touches him the more he talks to him and goes out with him, the more he wants to be with him.

I love this series and each book I say I love the main characters more. I have to admit the same here. Both Eric and Kyle touched my heart. I love character-driven stories and this one is amazing. Kyle, even though he has issues, is cocky, to the point goes for what he wants.
Eric is a sexy paramedic and more laid back than Kyle so the two fit perfectly. Eric’s job adds some action and tension to the story and Kyles card tricks add some fun, His best friend that visits adds a touch of humor and lightness.
If you are looking for a fun, fresh story, like sexy paramedics, hot croupiers, and club managers, drag queens, and some hot man-sex you will love this book
I highly recommend it.

Guess what… Survivor is available now! 
I’m so excited to share this story with you, the first in a new series. There’s murder, suspense, romance and passion. What more could you want?? The synopsis and buy links are below, and be sure to enter the giveaway for a chance to win a surprise swag pack!

Taylor Langford’s world is torn apart when he is only thirteen years old—his parents killed, leaving him alone and orphaned. With no living relatives, he’d certainly be another statistic if not for the intervention of the policeman who found Taylor in the crawl space where his mother hid him that fateful night. Despite the tragedy and resulting anguish in his life, Taylor knows how lucky he is.


Frank Moore is a rookie with the Dallas Police Department when he and his partner answer a call in Devonshire, one of the city’s more affluent neighborhoods. They think the young boy in various pictures throughout the home has been kidnapped until they find him, shaken but alive. Officer Moore recognizes the pain in the kid’s eyes, having lost his own mother to cancer when he was just a boy. He steps in, making sure Taylor is placed with a loving foster family. Over the years, Frank becomes a permanent fixture in Taylor’s life.

 

A decade later, the case remains unsolved and the once gangly, uncertain teenager is now a college graduate who knows exactly what he wants. He’s coming home to the man that helped mold and shape his life, the man he’s loved for as long as he can remember, Frank Moore. But Taylor isn’t the only person returning to Dallas, and while Frank is distracted by his own conflicting feelings and the new bond growing between the two, the past creeps up on them, determined to finish what was started ten years earlier.
A note from the author…

I hope you enjoy Frank and Taylor’s story. It’s been a long road to get them settled, but I’m happy with where this story has taken them. When I started this book, the intent was to write a stand-alone story, but that has changed. Characters continually evolve throughout the writing process, and there are several characters in the book that want to tell their story. I’ve grown especially fond of Rory and I can’t wait to write his book, which will take us back to when he first joined the Bureau, and continue on to his happy ever after.
Please be advised: This is a May/December romance, and as in life, there are sexual situations that take place prior to the main characters finding their way to one another. This is not gratuitous; it is meant to show character growth and self-realization. There is absolutely no cheating.

Choices and Changes T.M. Smith #review #top10 #giveaway #allcocks

 

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.
