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.

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!

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!

Book Name: An Erie Halloween

Book: One

Release Date: October 20, 2013

Pages or Words: 65 pages

Categories: M/M Romance, Paranormal

Publisher: Torquere Press

Templeton Reed has been hiding his inner polecat since he was a child. Keeping his animal secreted is hard for a shifter, especially when one is living in a secret community of mystical beings. It`s the wolf shifters that cause Templeton the most trouble with their darned sensitive noses.

Templeton has a run-in with the Lake Erie pack and their alpha, Mikel Lupei, at the Office for Transmogrification Registration (OTTER). Templeton has a desk job checking registration papers and dealing with wolf shifters is not part of his job description. After that upsetting meeting the meek and mild office worker suddenly finds himself in the center of not only civil unrest among the shifter community but a violent plan for a coup aimed at rousting Mikel.

Templeton and Mikel, a skilled tracker of rogue shifters, are soon not only fighting for their lives, they`re also fighting the rigidly archaic rules of their kind, as well as the person responsible for trying to take over Mikel`s pack from the inside. Can this magical odd couple turn a passionate attraction into a full-fledged love affair?

My Review 

4 meows

Templeton is a skunk shifter and works at Office for Transmogrification Registration (OTTER) as a desk jockey, checking registration papers. Mikel and the Erie pack work there as trackers. After an attempt on Templeton’s life, Mikel seems to appoint himself as Templeton’s protector.
An Eerie Halloween a very fun, humorous and hot story with a bit of mystery and intrigue thrown in for good measure. I loved the playful banter between Templeton and the other characters. I laughed my butt off at the funny interjections and clichés of Templeton’s thoughts and telling of the story. There was a lot going on and several twists and turns. I have to say the mystery did throw me off and I am pretty good at figuring them out pretty early. You just can’t help to laugh at the way he jokes about his scent and stuff. I was skeptical at first about a skunk shifter, but it really worked.
If you’re looking for a different take on the paranormal, a slightly new world, lots of humor and some pretty hot, sensual,man-sex and just a good, sweet, funny, romantic mystery; I recommend this one.
