Cats Meow Survivor @TM Smith #favoriteauthor #MMromance #giveaway

 



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.

The Cat’s Meow ~~#Reviews that purrr~~6 day to get Lucky~~By LE Franks

Hi Y’all! We are still doing our Lucky in love month here on the Cat’s Meow. This week I have L.E. Franks sharing 6 days to Get Lucky and I am including a review for 6 days to Valentines since they do need read in order. Read on! LE has a special giveaway at the end!

I asked L.E. If she had any superstitions.

Thank you so much for including me, Cathy. In answer to your question, I only have one superstition: I have to hold someone’s hand on takeoff and landing when I’m traveling by plane. Funny I know. Like I’m going to prevent it from falling out of the sky or from running over the underpaid baggage handler on the tarmac. You never know, I always do and so far it’s worked.  Everyone who’s on the flight with me should thank me!

Wishing you all a Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Keep it green. – LE

About the book:

Mixologist Nick Valentine never thought love was in the cards, but after a scorching Valentine’s Day kiss from bouncer Davis “FatBoy” Newman, he’s beginning to think it’s possible. After four weeks of dry spell, Nick’s losing patience—it’s time FatBoy stop acting the gentleman and just throw him over the bar or Nick may just change his mind.

All FatBoy wants is a shot at winning Nick’s heart. As long as meddling bosses, an Irish hurling team and a bar riot don’t ruin his chances forever, he might just get lucky and take the man of his dreams, home.

MY Review

In order to know who the characters are and how the relationship is like it is with Fatboy and Valentine you need to read 6 Days to Valentine:

I give it a 5 meow and 3 purrs(moderate heat)

Nick is a mixologist and basically a manwhore. He gets hs kicks in the back room, most of the time with his backup Juan. He realizes he wants more from life than backroom one-offs. His bouncer he calls Fat-boy because of his linebacker size keeps trying to hook him up with his cousin, but Nick has an idea to assure that Fatboy quit harassing him and also be his servant for a day. Nick had no idea how this could backfire on him.

I loved Nick, and this story introduces us to Nick, Fatboy, and several other characters. I felt it was a great heartfelt set-up leading to the next book.
6 days to Valentine is fast-paced, funny, sweet with some romance and leaves you wanting more.
*I was gifted a copy of this story for an honest review*

Review for 6-days to Lucky

5 meows 4 purrs( some explicit man-sex)

6 Das to Lucky is the sequel or next installment of 6 days to Valentine. We pick up with Nick still not having been having sex with Fatboy. He is frustrated both sexually and for the fact that Fatboy is hiding deep in the closet and he is out and proud. We meet many new characters in this book. It is longer with a lot of action and some new possibilities of interest for Nick. Will he wait for Fat boy to decide or will he go with one of the new options?
We get more Nick, more angst, more Fatboy and his angst and more storyline. I loved it. The story keeps you on your toes, has humor and nail-biting suspense and we get some hot man-sex.
I want more! More Nick and more Fatboy!!!Please!

I was gifted a copy for an honest review

A Little more 6 days to Get Lucky:

Reaching across the empty bed next to me, I rode out the last waves of my dream alone. I could still feel his phantom kiss on my lips and the sensation of a hand stroking along my thigh.

The rest of it was just a blur of emotions and sticky residue on my sheets—though I could guess at it without much effort. FatBoy Newman had been a specter haunting me at work so it was no great leap to assume he’d shouldered his way into my dreams as well.

In fact, he was at the root of my problem: I’d been having a hell of a dry spell.

Four weeks of near misses had done nothing but stoke my bad mood and turn my balls a lovely shade of indigo that matched my jeans…

Four weeks of dashed hopes…

Four weeks since the most romantic kiss of my life…

Four weeks of nothing.

Fuck the South and its mythology of the Southern Gentleman—if FatBoy Newman didn’t stop treating me like a delicate flower and throw me up against a wall soon, I was going to explode.

It was six days until St. Patrick’s Day, and FatBoy had until then to make his move, or I was moving on.

Cat’s Meow~~~How to deal~~An All Cocks story, Behind the scenes, Review and Giveaway

How to Deal
An All Cocks
Story Book #3
Jon
Brennan comes from a long line of men in uniform; all born and bred to both
bleed and wear blue. His family and the majority of his co-workers support him
every step of the way, so he doesn’t need to hide the fact that he prefers men
over women. Between the job and his larger than life, loud and rowdy half Irish,
half Italian family, there isn’t much time for dating, much less finding a guy
that can deal with the stress and demands placed on the shoulders of an NYPD
Detective.
Kory
White is cocky and abrasive with most people, but it is all a mirage, a façade
he hides behind to keep his heart safe. As a child, Kory lost his mother to an
act of violence. Soon after, he and his baby sister Kassandra were separated by
the system. Kassandra was immediately adopted, but Kory spent the next ten
years cycling through foster homes before moving to the Big Apple. In an effort
to keep everyone at a distance, Kory has meticulously built himself an alter
ego: Hayden Cox, All Cocks’ cockiest model.
These
two strong willed men definitely prove opposites do attract. Both are stubborn
and hard headed to a fault, Kory more so than Jon. But Jon is used to being in
control, the one calling the shots, and Kory fights him at every turn. Just
when it seems they have found a way to navigate the unchartered territory that
is love, tragedy knocks on Kory’s door yet again. Volatile and strong, even in
the face of adversity, both men refuse to give up on each other – or their
love.
 
myreview

This series keeps getting better and better. With so many sexy characters it’s hard to pick a favorite but I think Jon and Kory are on the top for now. At least until the next book.  I did not think I would like this since I didn’t like Kory in the previous books. In how to deal we learn about Kory’s past. There is drama a bit of mystery and some angst.

Then we have Jon and his family. Wow! What a family. I adored all of them even hateful Grams.

This story has it all. Angst, comedy relief to soften the darkness, A bit of mystery on Kory’s side, some tragedy and drama, twists and of course really hot man-sex.

I was on pins and needles for a while there and fanning myself at other times. I highly recommend this book. It is a book three in a series though it stands alone pretty well. If you read the others you do know the other characters a bit more.

If you like hot cops, sexy porn stars, funny families, drama, angst and, of course hot man-sex you gotta read this!

Sneak peak behind the scenes at All Cocks stories

Writing about Gay Porn and making it believable

 

The All Cocks Stories is a series that was born from a conversation I had last year in Chicago with a couple of lovely young men that work in the online Gay porn industry. I learned a lot talking to these guys in regards to the ins and outs of the industry. So while I used what we talked about to start the series and it helped give Chris and Linc depth in their story, I also had to research the behind the camera aspect of the industry as well. There is a controversial movie on Netflix that was produced by James Franco, Interior Leather Bar; it’s about missing footage from an Al Pacino movie or something along those lines. What drew me to the movie was the behind the scenes of the behind the scenes. It was a glimpse of what camera crews, directors and producers do to make these sexy videos we love to drool over.

Then there is my most prized possession, my membership to Cockyboys, I get a LOT of inspiration from there. So when you are reading these books and the story rotates from filming a scene to the actors in the scene and back to the crew filming the scene, I hope you get the feeling that you are really there and getting a somewhat accurate account of what might happen while filming.

I didn’t want the stories to be all about the sex or the industry though, so I am giving each book a unique storyline. Gay for Pay was Chris and Linc’s story and the title should speak for itself. Fame and Fortune is the story of the throuple that runs All Cocks, how they started the company and how they became a working threesome. Up next for this group of guys is How to Deal, this will be Officer Jon and cranky Kory’s story and I’m very excited to get this one started. Jon and Kory are already talking and fighting in my head let me tell you, this book is going to be a bit volatile, but sexy as hell.

I don’t know yet how many books this series will hold, new characters keep popping up in my head and talking to me. Yes, I admit I hear voices and no, I’m not crazy. Well, not really anyways. For fans of the series I know for certain I’ll be writing a book for Colton and Tony, books for Dusty/Asher and for William/Connor somewhere along the way, a couple novellas {Michael and Max, Jordan and someone ;)} and Gabe’s story is taking an interesting twist in How to Deal. I also introduce a new character in How to Deal, an Iraqi War Vet that has lost his leg. His story is going to be woven into someone elses. I had WAY too much fun writing Fame and Fortune, I must have another threesome!
