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.

Dare to Hope Audio tour T.M.Smith Joel Leslie #M/Mromance #sogood

 
Tristan is the second oldest of the Brennan brothers and the odd man out. Most of the Brennan men have careers in law enforcement, but as a psychiatrist, Tristan chooses to help people in a different way. Quiet and restrained, he is content to hover in the background of his more gregarious brothers. Then he meets two men, each broken and damaged from losses beyond their control.
Gabriel Simenson is mourning his lover’s death. The random act of violence that took Gio’s life has left everyone at All Cocks reeling. The only thing keeping Gabe from drowning in misery is the friendship he’s forged with Micah, the newest model at All Cocks. He continues to struggle, and at the urging of his All Cocks family Gabe agrees to counseling with Tristan under one condition: Micah must go with him.
Micah Solo can relate to unbearable loss, having lost his leg and so much more in Iraq. The past two years he has been alone, adrift and vulnerable – the memories of war haunting his dreams, spilling over into his daily life. At All Cocks, Micah has found the acceptance he craves and the family he lost, but still he yearns for happiness and peace within.
The friendship between the three is instant, the mutual attraction evident. They circle each other, wanting more, yet unsure if it is truly possible. Is life the mundane reality they’ve each come to accept for themselves or do they dare to hope?
The All Cocks Stories is a series set within the world of online gay porn. Micah’s PTSD is told in detail, including flashbacks to his time in Iraq.

MY REVIEW

“Fabulous! Fabulous! Fabulous!”

Overall 5 Meows
Performance 5 meows
Story 5 meows
Where does Dare to Hope rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Way up at the top!

Which scene was your favorite?

Too many to mention, but if I do have to choose one, I will pick when Micah asked both Gabe and Tristan to make love to him at the same time. This usually isn’t my thing but T.M Smith wrote it so beautifully and Joel Leslie narrated it so passionately that it would set you heart and kindle on fire.

If you could take any character from Dare to Hope out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Hmm. Hard choice again. I will pick Tristan. I love a big man with a bit of scruff. I loved his accent. He is charming, attentive, patient, loving kind.

Any additional comments?

Dare to Hope is by far my favorite in this series. It was one of my favorites as a book, and Joel Leslie’s narration made it even better. He acted out each voice, gave each character a distinct accent and the sex scenes were done wth o much passion.

Dare to Hope is about two men with different types of PTSD. Gabe is suffering from the loss of his lover, Micah from the loss of his leg in the war. They both worked for All Cocks and became very close friends, bonding. Tristan is Gabe’s counselor and becomes Micah’s, and the three of them cannot get over the attraction they feel for each other.

Dare to Hope is a charming story and extremely well written. The characters are very well developed and likable, and the story line is interesting. You won’t want to put it down or turn it off once you start.

#listenwithme~~Gay for Pay Audiobook by T.M. Smith~Behind the scenes and a Giveaway

Tammy-Audible-banner-JayAheer2016

I have recently found a new way to feed my book obsession. Now I can read hands-free. Well maybe not read but listen. I still get more books.  I can be read to while I workout or do housework making these chores much more fun.  This week’s tour is an audio tour with my wonderful friend TM Smith. I have read her All Cocks books now I have the opportunity to listen as well. Dont forget to read on. There are some hot teasers and a giveaway!

I even got TM to take us behind the scenes

Behind the scenes, Gay for Pay.

I wanted to elaborate on the story behind this story. Gay for Pay is the first book in the All Cocks stories. The idea unfolded inside my chaotic head after several conversations I had with a couple of gay porn stars at GRL in Chicago. I had the pleasure of meeting two Randy Blue phenoms, Jordan Levine and Caleb Strong. One night we were having drinks at the Speakeasy and somehow we wound up on the subject of gay for pay. You see, I’ve never been a believer of the term. In my opinion, if you are a man and you let another man fuck you or suck you or vice versa, anything physical that involves two men, you are at the very least bi-sexual. Well, Jordan and Caleb set me straight on that assumption real quick.

Jordan is a straight gay for pay guy while Caleb is bi-sexual, I asked how can you be straight and fuck other men? I don’t understand, please help me understand. And he did just that. Our conversations play out on paper in the book, and I think once you read the book you’ll be able to pick out things that Jordan told me about his struggles working in the industry. And I have to say that both these guys were super friendly, outgoing and just a joy to hang out with. Caleb plays a mean hand of poker!

What I did for the backdrop of the story, this world I’m creating with this series, was tied in my fascination with online gay porn. I’m addicted I tell you, I need a twelve step program. I’m especially drawn to the Cockyboys family. I follow several of the models as well as the matriarch of the famdamily, Jake Jaxson, on social media. They just exude this vibe of family, and I love that aspect to their site in particular. So what I did was created my own sort of mock gay porn site and family, the All Cocks stories. While their jobs are creating these sexually charged videos, at the end of the day, it’s all about family. I hope that is what you take with you when you finish the book.

Christopher Allan Roberts thought he had a promising future: captain of the football team with the promise of a scholarship to play for Alabama, his high school sweetheart and best friend for as long as he could remember, Amanda, by his side, and the love and support of his family. One night, one mistake changed everything. Chris moves to New York, adrift and alone. A walk one night brings him to the flashing lights, loud music and thrumming bodies at Club Berlin. A flyer in the men’s room promises fame and fortune for anyone willing to go on camera and have sex, with another man. Money is money, and how hard could it be, right? Christopher Allan Roberts becomes Kris Alen, All Cocks’ newest addition, a gay for pay porn star.
Lincoln Carter is honest with everyone in his life, including his family, about who he is and about his sexual preferences. Linc Larson, the openly bisexual gay porn star, will do anything with anyone, which pretty much writes his ticket in a versatility-charged industry. It’s not his sexuality that interferes with his personal life; it’s his inability to trust. What Linc wants right now, more than anything, is the chance to do a scene with All Cocks’ newest acquisition, Kris Alen. Six-foot-two with auburn hair, an exquisitely toned and inked up body, Kris Alen is sex personified. Linc doesn’t know if it’s the “I want the shiny new toy” aspect that calls to him, or the distant and wounded expression that haunts Kris’s eyes.
Linc figures out early on that Kris is only working the gay for pay angle that All Cocks brings to his bank account. Can a bisexual man with trust issues break down the barriers that Kris has built around himself and help Christopher overcome the painful past he is running from?

: Chris has lost a lot in his young life. He has no job, no prospects and the money he inherited from his grandfather is almost gone. He doesn’t want to crash on his best friend’s couch forever. He goes into club Berlin, meets Kolton and makes yet another gay friend. While there he finds a flyer on the wall that advertises for gay porn models and states they take gay for pay models as well.  Once he meets Vicor, Andrew and several others at All Cocks, he decides to give it a try.

I loved this story when I read it and was eager to see how it would be on Audio. I loved it.

Tony Clark’s voice is smooth and sexy. Though he only changed his voice for two of the many characters, Victor and Linc I don’t think it was quite necessary. He had a good enough way to the telling that it was clear who was speaking and when.  I laughed out loud a few times and let me tell you, his renditions of the hot sex scenes were so sensual and mind-blowing hot!

I highly recommend you give this a listen! (Be sure to wear your headphones or earbuds if listening in public!
