Friend to Enemies to Lovers, Second Chance romance

 

O’Malley Ramsey, math aficionado, grew up next door to Garrison Rook, All-American athlete. While O’Malley dreamed of numbers and kissing Garrison, Garrison’s tastes ran to home runs and hot chicks.

During a family celebration the night before both young men were heading off for college, O’Malley joyously discovers that Garrison isn’t quite as straight as the star athlete had been pretending to be. Vows to return to each other quickly followed a few clumsy kisses in the old treehouse in the Rook’s backyard.

O’Malley came home to Garrison. Garrison never returned to O’Malley.

Four years later, the two ex-friends meet up at a summer camp where O’Malley is serving as a counselor. Garrison is desperate to make things right with his childhood friend, but can O’Malley, still nursing the pain and mistrust of Garrison’s betrayal, ever forgive or love Garrison again?

MY REVIEW 

O’Malley and Garrison were friends since first grade. O’Malley came out in High school but Garrison is straight or at least O’Malley thought until the night before they were both leaving for college. A confession from Garrison along with hot kisses gropes and a promise to talk every day and be back at Christmas leads to lies and distrust.
Four years later at summer camp, they cross paths again Garrison wanting O’Malley to listen to him and another chance to make things right. Will O’Malley get over his hurt and give Garrison that chance?
This is a great story about love, things teenagers say, things happening and second chances. The characters are well developed. I love the love-hate thing between Garrison and O’Malley. I especially loved both O’Malley’s dad and the Rooks too. There is a bit of drama and I nearly cried close to the end.
If you like friends to enemies to lovers, second chances, hot baseball players, sexy mathematicians and some hot man-love you will love this book!

 A Little More Improper Fraction

Hand shielding my eyes, I watched as the Silverado stopped in front of Professor Belshaw’s wildly decorated cabin right beside Lake Amalie. The professor had gotten all her wind chimes hung that morning. Each one was a brilliant and some would say garish color. They clattered and clanged with each touch of a breeze off the lake. She had made them all out of silver soup spoons and old silver teapots. Then she had painted them to match her whims. Professor Belshaw had incredibly colorful whims so it seems.

 

When the passenger door opened, I felt a wide smile break free as I saw Emily Rook slide to the ground, her long brown hair pulled into a ponytail. I wasn’t familiar with the Silverado but had to assume that Mr. Rook had gotten a new ride. Since I hadn’t spent much time at home after graduation due to a graduation gift of a vacation in Palm Beach from my father, it was quite likely that he had. That old minivan he had owned had been creeping toward the junkyard for a couple of years. Emily spun in a circle and then found me standing in the gravel path. She waved frantically while jumping up and down. I did the same. Then Garrison Rook exited that massive blue Silverado. My arm crashed numbly to my side and all happy jumping died.

 

My first thought was “God above but he looks amazing!” which was quickly followed by “I think I may puke!” but I managed to hold down my lunch. Emily pointed in my direction. The sloppy joe from my midday meal rolled over in my stomach. Garrison’s dark eyes found and held me. He looked incredible. Even more handsome now that he had lost those final touches of boyhood. Garrison was all man now. Every single, athletic, heartbreaking, lying inch of him.

 

“Shit.” I groaned and swallowed. I was sure my sandwich and chips were going to come back up. Someone appeared beside me. I couldn’t rip my attention from Garrison as we stared at each other.

 

“Never eat the fried oysters.” Professor Belshaw barked with glee then drove a sharp elbow into my side. “Ah, I see the Rooks have arrived!” She waved them over. I felt like a hare that the hounds had just sighted. “O’Malley, if you don’t close your mouth one of these damn deer flies is going to zip right in and land on your tongue,” she said as she waved a hand at a pesky fly buzzing around our heads.

 

I forced my jaw to come up. Every step Garrison and Emily took made my pulse speed up. By the time the two Rook siblings stood in front of me, I felt woozy. Were my ears ringing or was that tinny noise just one of Belshaw’s wind chimes?

 

“Hello there.” Professor Belshaw grabbed one of Garrison’s large hands and pumped it. It took two of hers to cover one of his. He had strong hands. I clearly recalled how they had felt when he had run them over me that night in the treehouse. “It’s a real honor to have a Carolina Cutter in the camp!”

 

I glanced at Emily. She averted her gaze as the camp owner fawned over Garrison. Emily knew there was tension between her brother and me, but I had never revealed to her what kind of upset had occurred. Why should I tarnish Garrison in her eyes? No one but my father knew of how this man had shredded me into ticker tape and then tossed me into the wind.

 

“It’s a real pleasure to be here, Professor,” Garrison said. My skin prickled just hearing his voice. Was it deeper? It sounded it. His brown eyes never left me as he talked baseball with Professor Belshaw. I worked on keeping up with the conversation they were having but my mind kept drifting back. To better days, days when Garrison and I were the best of buddies riding our bikes through mud puddles, sleeping out in the treehouse during the summer, working on making a comic book that starred a baseball player who used math as his super weapon. Those memories assaulted me as I stood there staring at his hand clasped so tightly by Belshaw.

 

“Isn’t it exciting, O’Malley?” Hearing my name pulled me out of childhood remembrances. My gaze flew to her then to Garrison. He now had his hand back, which was good. Would it look bad if I slugged him in the face and then stormed off? Probably.

Open Net

Cayuga Cougars

V.L. Locey

M/M Erotic  Hockey Romance

 

August Miles has the world on a string professionally.

Augie, as his friends and teammates call the unassuming young goaltender, is on the fast track to the pros. The starting goalie for the Cayuga Cougars, he has a year or two in Cayuga to hone his skills and all his career dreams will have come true. Pity his personal life isn’t riding the same high. He’s the only one among his group of friends without that special someone to call his own.

Until he meets Salvatore Castenada at a lakeside party. The attraction is white-hot and more than a little wonderfully overwhelming for the romantically inexperienced goalie. August quickly discovers that Sal is everything he’s dreamed of in a man: mature, settled, sinfully handsome, and filled with gentle humor. Sal is also HIV positive.

Will Sal’s revelation about his status end this budding relationship before it can even begin? Or will the two men be able to handle the challenges life—and a championship run for the Cougars—throws at them?

MY REVIEW

Once again V.L. Locey has knocked another one out of the ballpark or should I say into the net! I simply love how V.L. isn’t afraid to approach touchy social issues. This one, in particular, being HIV.

August Miles is a charming character that is closeted, though he wonders why since there are players on his team openly gay. He meets Sal at a graduation party for Heather, the baby momma to Victor one of Augie’s teammates.

Sal is a transportation orderly at the hospital and a close friend of Heather’s. Sal and Augie hit it off right away and their romance develops quickly but will Sal’s secret be too much for Augie?

As usual, all of the characters are well-developed, charming, quirky and fun. We get another look at Vic and Dan and also Mario and Lila.
The topic as I mentioned is dealing with an HIV positive lover and I learned a lot. I didn’t want to put this book down once I started!

If you like interesting characters, Hockey players, Orderlies, a sweet romance with a touchy subject, coming out a spicy romance with some hot man-sex you will like this.
If you are not a sports fan don’t let that stop you. The hockey does not overpower the story and does add flavor!

How about a little more Open Net? (R-Rated )

Several days later, trying to be nonchalant about things, I stood outside his door, empty container in my hand, features schooled not to reflect how scared I was.

He looked shocked to see me on his doorstep. “Hey,” he said.

I held up the empty dish.

His gaze darted to the container, then back to me, a smile tugging at the corner of his sensual mouth. “Looking for a refill or something more?”

“Both.”

He stepped aside to let me enter. I paused just inside the front door, turning to look at him after he shut it.

“I’d like to have more,” I said, and held out the container like some sort of orphan in a musical.

“More what?” he asked, and I heard the uncertainty in his voice.

“More food and more you.”

“Are you sure, August?”

I nodded.

He gently took the container, his eyes locked with mine. “Are you one hundred percent sure? Maybe you should take more time. I’m not a prime dating candidate for you. I’m seropositive and I’m fifteen years older than you are. I can almost guarantee you that some of your friends are going to be against us seeing each other.”

“I don’t need more time and I don’t need friends who would be so judgmental. Yes, I’m one hundred percent sure. I’ve spent days reading, watching videos, and then reading more. I even talked with a medical professional. I know what I’m going to be facing—what we’re going to be facing.”

He tossed the container onto a small table at the end of the sofa. “We can never have unprotected sex. Ever. Not even once.”

“I know,” I said as want began pumping through my veins.

“If a condom breaks you could get infected.” He stared deep into my eyes.

“I know,” I replied. “I know all the bad things that can happen. I still want to date you.”

“No, you just think you know all the bad things, Aug. There’s so much you don’t know.” He sounded sad and weary.

“Then I’ll learn. Sal, I want to be with you, okay? I mean, if you don’t want to be with me, then that’s fine. I’ll just leave and you’ll never have to look at my dumb face ever—”

Sal stepped up to me without a word and pushed my back against the wall. A shocked grunt escaped me right before his mouth dropped over mine. He ran his tongue over the seam of my mouth. I let him in. He was powerful, possessive and hungry. His tongue slipped around mine as his hands found the edge of my shirt.

Breaking the kiss, he jerked my shirt upward, not caring that it caught under my chin. He just tugged harder to get the neckband free. Once the material popped free, he grabbed the shirt with both hands and held my arms over my head, the soft cotton keeping my hands off him.

“I should tell you to leave now, but I want you too bad to be noble,” he growled.

He captured my mouth again, this time letting his body lean in to me from chest to knees. My fingers slipped out of the T-shirt and I pushed them between his. Sal gyrated against me. His hard cock slid over mine. I sucked in a heated breath. He moaned, then began feasting on my neck, collarbone, and finally a nipple. He slipped his hands out of my grip and his palms, flat to my arms, slowly slithered downward.

Come chat with V.L. Locey and R. J Scott ~ #newrelease

 

Cat *Beebobs in singing badly to Soak Up the Sun*

“OOPs! Hi ya’ll” *Blushes taking of my earphones. * ” I am so excited! Today I have not one but two of my favorite authors stopping by.” *Pulls out two chairs on the patio*

“Hi V.L. and R.J. Thanks for dropping by. Can I offer you a glass of Tea, lemonade, wine or a mixed drink?”

V.L. – Generally it would be water but since we’re celebrating a book release, bring on the wine!

R.J. – Tea, I’m not a great drinker… hell, who am I kidding, wine please… no… not a glass… just give me the bottle

Cat “Would you like a grilled veggie sandwich, chicken kabob, beef kabob, burger or something?” *motions to the tray of grill food. *

V.L. – Burger for me.

R.J. – What is a kabob? Is that like chicken on a stick? *Cat nods* I’ll have that please J

Cat “I hope you don’t mind the soundtrack I have running I have a habit of turning on my iPhone while I’m sitting out. This is some country,80’s and of course Adam Levine. Do you have a favorite channel or a playlist and what’s usually on it?”

V.L.  – I can’ work with music or the TV on. I get easily distracted. I DO make up playlists for my characters as part of my process of getting to know them better though.

R.J. – I like a whole load of songs, and I listen to songs as I am writing. They have to be songs I know so that I can almost *tune them out* if that makes any sense… My favorite song of all time is Like A Prayer by Madonna.

Cat “I love sitting on my patio reading and entertaining. What do you like to do in your downtime?”

V.L. – Watch Rangers hockey or any hockey really. I like to read, practice yoga, walk, play video games, and read comic books on my down time. What little there is of it.

R.J. – Reading and watching films mostly sums me up. I am a couch potato who loves to live in the worlds created by the books or the TV. Oh and hockey, all the hockey J

Molly my terrier comes up for some attention, followed by Kitness. Kitness rubs against V.L. and R.J.’s legs, Chloe peeks around and curls up in the sun ignoring them.

“Do you have pets?”

V.L. -A few. =D We have two Jersey steers, chickens, geese, two cats and a dog.

R.J. – Holds breath as I am allergic to cats:

*Cat takes the cats back inside*

O I have a dog, Jack. He’s a black lab and he’s just turned 12. He’s in a couple of my books – Last Marine Standing, and of course, Guarding Morgan J

Cat “For those of us that don’t know you tell us a little about yourself.”

V.L. I’m from the mountains of Pennsylvania and I write mostly MM romance, generally hockey although I do dabble in non-hockey contemporary as well as some MM paranormal. I also have an M/F hockey romance series as well.

RJ – I’m from England, in a town about 40m NW of London and I’ve been writing what seems like forever. From essays to long handed fan fiction at the age of 12 I am all about the writing. I found MM Supernatural fan fiction in 2007 or so, and I haven’t looked back. I write mostly MM, although I have 5 titles that are MF. I create stories with a guaranteed happy ever after and I love writing everything from angst to drama to action to family… you get where I’m going with this.

Cat: What does your writing cave look like? Do you always write in the same place or have a few?

V.L.  – I work at my kitchen room table. Someday I hope to have an office but until we move to a bigger house it’s the table for me.

R.J. – I have an office. It’s all mine. I have a standard desk, and a wall that I have all my posters up on. It’s actually a dining room that I have stolen but in my new house I have a study, a proper grown up study. LOL. Of course I have to move first and it’s likely going to be in August. *HELL*.

Cat “Your both on the top of my favorite authors list and I was happily surprised to see you collaborate. How did you come up with this idea?”

V.L. – Rj was hosting me on her blog one day and during the interview we mentioned how we’d love to write a book together as we were fans of the others works. That led to at least two series in the works. Probably there would be more if Rachel didn’t keep us in line. =D

R.J. We just won’t tell Rachel what we’re up too… bwahahahahah. What Vicki said, it just happened, and it’s been the best co-authoring experience ever. The stories just flow so easily and it’s been good for my solo writing.

Cat: What is your method? Does one of you each do a character or how does collaborating work?”

V.L. – Yep, we each write one character in first person POV.

R.J. – What Vicki said, we also comment and edit each other’s characters, and we talk a lot when we’re working.

Cat. Tell us a little about this series?

V.L.  This series is about the Harrisburg Railers, an expansion team that’s working hard to make its presence felt in the NHL. We’ll be dealing with various players and their romances, of course.

  1. J.

Tell us a about this book.

 

Changing Lines is all about Tennant Rowe, the youngest of three hockey brothers, and always expected to be like his brothers. Much to his brother’s disgust he opts to play for the Railers, even though they are a new team, and not an original six team. He meets Jared, defensive coach, who has his own set of problems, including a teenage son that was born when Jared was only 16 himself. Lust happens pretty quick… but love? That has many obstacles to overcome J

 

How many books will be in this series?

 

V.L. – If we follow through on all the ideas we have about 35,000. I kid! Mostly. We’ don’t have a set limit yet.

R.J. At least 35,001… We’re writing until it doesn’t feel right anymore… which I can’t see happening ever.

Cat: Will you be working together again?

V.L. – Yep! We’re going to do an NA MM collegiate hockey romance spin-off series, about the team from Owatanna U.

R.J. We have so many ideas and Vicki mentioned the NA series that I can’t wait to start.

Do you write things other than Hockey romance?

V.L. – My answer is above

R.J. – Loads of stuff, all the stuff… so many storylines…

Thank you for stopping by and sharing. It’s been fun.

A little about the book(blurb)

 

Can Tennant show Jared that age is just a number, and that love is all that matters?

 

The Rowe Brothers are famous hockey hotshots, but as the youngest of the trio, Tennant has always had to play against his brothers’ reputations. To get out of their shadows, and against their advice, he accepts a trade to the Harrisburg Railers, where he runs into Jared Madsen. Mads is an old family friend and his brother’s one-time teammate. Mads is Tennant’s new coach. And Mads is the sexiest thing he’s ever laid eyes on.

 

Jared Madsen’s hockey career was cut short by a fault in his heart, but coaching keeps him close to the game. When Ten is traded to the team, his carefully organized world is thrown into chaos. Nine years his junior and his best friend’s brother, he knows Ten is strictly off-limits, but as soon as he sees Ten’s moves, on and off the ice, he knows that his heart could get him into trouble again.

I’d like to thank Cathy for having me over to visit today. It’s so wonderful to spend holiday time with friends and family. An important part of this season for me is holiday music. Music has always held a special place in my life, and in my stories. While I don’t generally work with music in the background, songs can play important roles in my work. Also, I think you can get a real taste for a character by the music they enjoy. Today I have a playlist to share with you with some songs that I feel really capture Adam and Cason, the leading men in Holly & Hockey Boots. I hope you enjoy the tunes and have a happy holiday season!

M/M Erotic Holiday Hockey Romance Novella

 

Minor league goalie Adam Seiger is a nice guy. He’s kind, cute, and a little quirky (but show me a goalie who isn’t) and he loves to interact with fans. During a meet and greet after a game Adam meets Cason Reyes, a hard-working young man with stunning amber eyes and a smile as sweet as a candy cane. Desperate to see Cason again, Adam does something more than a little naughty.

To add insult to the egg nog, it appears that one little white lie may end Adam’s chance of having a merry Christmas with a new boyfriend. Will he end up with nothing but a lump of coal in his stocking, instead of the man who owns his heart?

My Review

5 meows 4 purrs

 

Adam Seiger is cute funny and an up and coming Goalie in the minor league hockey One night during a signing he spots a man that flips his switches. The man has his young nephew with him and wanting to see more of Cason he invites them to a Christmas party the team is sponsoring for kids. There is one big problem…There is no party.

Cason likes Adam, and they get together for coffee and kisses, but with Cason’s work schedule, raising his nephew and taking care of his ailing father there is little time for anything else. He is looking forward to the party and getting to know more about Adam as much as Finn.
But will Adam’s secret put an end to their romance before it begins?

I fell in love with Adam from the beginning of this story. I loved his outgoing personality and his quirkiness. I adored Cason and of course Finn and Cason’s father.
The story is fun, fast paced and full of quirky characters. I love a sweet romance and a heartwarming holiday story, and this fills both bills…add in some hot man-sex, and it’s even better!

If you like hockey romance ( or even if you don’t), interracial romance, cute kids, humor, sweet romance, holiday stories and hot man-sex, this is definitely for you.

 

 

A little more Holley and Hockey Boots

“So tell me about Adam Seiger, the first gay black goalie I’ve ever had the pleasure of eating spiedies with.”

I smiled around the mouthful of awesomeness. “Not much to tell,” I said after I swallowed roughly. “I grew up in Toronto, played lots of hockey, and was taken in by my aunt and uncle when my parents were killed in a motorcycle accident.”

“Ouch,” he murmured after dipping a fry into a glob of ketchup on his plate. “That must have been rough on you. How old were you when they died?”

“Four, so I don’t really remember too much about them. My aunt and uncle were the best, really.” I looked up from my food to find Cason staring at me. “Do I have food on my face?”

“No, no, you’re just,” he paused with a fry hovering in front of his face, “you’re probably the best looking man I’ve seen in this city for years. I guess I’m kind of stunned to find myself sitting here, on a date, with such a sexy jock.” I had to avert my sight, just until I could get the surge of embarrassment and white-hot lust under control. “See, that there—that is so hot. I love that about hockey players. They’re always so damn humble.”

“So yeah, enough about me or my face will combust,” I said, and Cason chuckled then shoved his fry into his mouth. “How did a kid with a dad from Argentina get into hockey? I’d think you’d be a soccer fan.”

“Oh, I am, but winter in Binghamton means hockey, so I go to the games when I can afford it. I like the speed of hockey, and the violence. Also, the goalies are really cute.”

I coughed and ducked my head. “You’re doing it again.” Cason laughed and I felt the rib pit tip dangerously to the right. Making him laugh again now seemed like the most important thing ever. “Do you always talk up your dates this way?”

“Only if I’m dreaming about a kiss at the end of the date,” he confessed, but I saw a shade of pink settle into his smooth cheeks. Seemed he was a bit of a blusher as well. That was good to know.

“Yeah, that dream is pretty sure to be fulfilled if you keep talking like that.”

Excerpt:

A Little from Derrick

 

The phone died just as I knew it would. “Love you too, Mags,” I said anyway then shoved my deceased phone into the front pocket of my trousers. A stiff wind whistled through the parking lot, making me move a little faster. Stepping inside the Doughnut Den, warm, moist air and the smell of freshly made doughnuts embraced me. My belly rumbled as I stepped up to the counter to order coffee for four adults and a box of a dozen assorted doughnuts. The cashier was a tiny little gal who seemed a little intimidated by the ugly old bear buying glazed and chocolate-covered. Even when I give her a smile and a tip, she hung back, never looking me in the eye. I was used to it. Ashley, the girl having my grandbaby, she was real quiet and backward around me for months until she got to know me better. Guess I was one scary type. Must be the beard and scars. You don’t play hockey for twenty years and not get battle scars.

I took my purchases to a table by the window so I could see Aho’s spiffy white Jaguar XJL Ultimate when he pulled up. Imagine my surprise when I saw the goalie climbing out of a metallic blue BMW coupe about ten minutes later. Aho took a moment to button up his long black coat then tuck a white scarf dangling around his neck into the front of his coat. He hurried across the parking lot, looking like some sort of high paid fashion model instead of a hockey player. I reached up to rub the knob on the bridge of my nose, a reminder of ten stitches needed after taking a high stick from some chucklehead from Boston. Hell, that musta been ten years ago now. Veikko, he didn’t have no scars. Not a one, and that was good. If you’ve never seen pictures of the old goalies back before they started wearing masks, you’d be terrified of what you were seeing.

“I was wondering if you’d be having a snack while you waited,” the Finn said after he entered the shop. I held up a half-eaten peanut-butter crème filled. Aho smiled then walked up the counter. That little girl didn’t seem to have any troubles chatting and blushing all over Veikko as he ordered drinks.

“I already got you some,” I informed him when he walked over to the table by the window.

“Ah, well, we’ll have refills.” His eyes dropped to the open box of doughnuts.

“Dig in,” I said then pushed the last bite of my peanut-butter crème filled into my trap.

“Thank you, but I’ll have to pass,” he said in that precise, refined way he spoke.

“I ain’t playing no more so I can grab a sweet now and again,” I informed him.

“It looks like you have grabbed five sweets,” he countered then gave me a wink. I closed the lid then pushed to my feet. The man was just rubbing me wrong for some reason. Probably, I was still pissed off about the train ride and was taking that out on him. “I envy you,” Veikko added as I gathered up my dirty napkins. My gaze jumped from the trash in my hands to the Finn. There wasn’t one damn thing I could think of that Aho would envy me, or anyone else, about. “You’re free now to enjoy the delights of life and not be so concerned about a few extra pounds and how they slow you down on the ice.”

“Oh, yah, being retired is about the best thing ever,” I lied like a rug then whipped my garbage into a can by the front door. Out into the cold we went, both of us carrying containers with coffee, and me with a box of doughnut under my arm. “So where are we, you know, in terms of the baby coming?”

“Not far yet,” he replied, turning his face from a gust of wind that sent papers flying up over our heads. “Elizabeth tells me that first time births can take many hours.”

“Yah, so I hear.” We stopped by the blue BMW. “Where’s the Jag? I didn’t think you ever left home without her.”

Aho grinned at me from across the roof of the Beemer. “That was before we were to be parents. As much as I love my Jaguar, it is not exactly the kind of car one carries a child in, is it?”

“Guess not,” I replied then slowly lowered myself into the car. I looked into the backseat, hoping to find a place to put the doughnut box, and saw a brand new car seat all strapped in and ready for use. I kid you not, seeing that car seat hit me puck between the eyes.

My Review

5 Meows

Roster Addition is a novella that goes with the Wild Cats Series.

In this book Ashley goes into labor early. We get several views in this book, Derrick, Viekko, Maggie, Liz and a new character at the end.

To fill you in if you haven’t read the series, Ashley is a pregnant teenager, the baby’s dad is Trevor Maggies teenage son. Trevor and Ashley decided to give the baby up to adoption to Viekko and Liz since they weren’t able to have their own. Derrick and Maggie are dealing with the fact they wanted to raise the baby as their own grandchild, and derrick is really struggling with a few changes Viekko has made.

 

The book is very heartfelt, has a lot going on, and a few surprises along the way.

I’ve been waiting on this story and wasn’t let down and the tease at the end makes me want the next Venom book right now!
