Bad Valentine Series - by Jesi Lea Ryan, Dev Bentham, Clare London, Jordan Castillo Price






Love Magic

Jesi Lea Ryan

"The day I met Derrick while playing my violin in the park was magical. Unfortunately, magic and love together don’t always mix."

Oliver met Derrick while busking in the park, and they hit it off from the start. At first, Derrick’s “mysterious magician” vibe was intriguing, but after two botched dates, Oliver was ready to call it quits.

Fearing he lost his chance with Oliver, Derrick makes a last-ditch effort to win Oliver’s heart with a romantic Valentine’s date. But when love and magic collide, things tend to go awry. Will these two guys make it through the date unscathed?

Temporary Dad

Dev Bentham




Nick Compton owns a small but mighty fashion magazine. He already has enough on his plate, between work and, well, work. There’s no room for a kid in his life but when his sister drops her seven-year-old daughter for an extended stay, he has to figure it out. Just before his niece arrives, Nick meets a blazing hot firefighter. They get on like a house a fire and the sex—scorching. Too bad the he disappeared in the morning. Like smoke. Now Nick’s stuck with a kid he doesn’t know how to manage and without the man he’d love to get his hands on again.
Dylan Gil wishes like hell he hadn’t taken his roommates advice and lied about who he was. He’s finally met someone he really likes and can’t stop thinking about. But now he’s too embarrassed to confess that he’s just a second-grade teacher, not a manly firefighter. Good thing that work gets distracting, particularly when one of his brightest students goes to stay with her uncle and all hell breaks loose. Some people shouldn’t be allowed to have kids.

If the term “dad pants” means anything it’s that taking care of children and fashion aren’t compatible. Does that mean these two doomed? Or is this the beginning of forever?
A contemporary gay romantic comedy by Dev Bentham, Temporary Dad features mistaken identity, opposites attracting, a one night stand and some steamy mm romance.

My Rating - 4 Stars!

Temporary Dad is a sweet and simple Valentine's Day story. When Nick and Dylan meet, the chemistry is there, but Dylan's using a fake story. They meet again when Nick's niece is staying with him and he discovers that Dylan is her teacher.

If you don't mind reading about kids, you'll find this cute. If you're one who hates reading about kids, skip this one. There's a whole lot of parenting tips, as Nick's whatever-she-wants attitude is not helping. 

I like Temporary Dad. It's a quick, happy romance that left me smiling.

Hidden Hearts

Clare London


Accident-prone Ethan has a dating history that reads like a disaster movie script. Strong and silent Kel can’t seem to master the necessary small-talk on a proper date. When they both get signed up anonymously for a Valentines’s night event—"for those with an adventurous spirit but an open diary”—they never imagined they’d be matched. They never imagined the romantic sparks would fly. To be honest, they never imagined they’d survive the week.
A catalogue of disasters dogs the footsteps of their blossoming romance, including a coffee date with food allergies as an added extra, an intimate dinner that strays too close for comfort to chopped chillies, and a sensual massage with hot wax candles that threatens to alert the local fire brigade.
But if they can hold tight to their sweet, surprising, yet single-minded attraction – they might just survive this Valentine’s Day with something very special to look forward to.


Review 
My Rating - 5 Stars!



Clare London's contribution to the Bad Valentine Series, Hidden Hearts, is a whole lot of fun. As Ethan and Kel meet up, they have no idea what will happen. 

Ethan's as clumsy as can be, leading to some fantastic scenes, and usually this scares men away. But, in Kel, he meets someone who's not afraid. These men are not what the other is usually attracted to, but the attraction is there anyway. They have a lot to overcome to be together, but it's a fun ride.

Hidden Hearts is full of classic Clare London humor, a good romance, and a great happily ever after.

Quill Me Now

Jordan Castillo Price


What if the words you wrote came true?
Spellcraft isn’t exactly a respectable business, but it does pay the bills. At least, it should. Unfortunately, Dixon Penn failed his Spellcraft initiation. Instead of working in his family’s shop, he’s stuck delivering takeout orders in his uncle’s beat-up Buick.
Winning a Valentine’s Day contest at the largest greeting card company in the tri-state area would be just the thing to get his life back on track—but something at Precious Greetings just doesn’t add up. And despite numerous warnings to quit pestering them about his contest entry, he simply can’t stop himself from coming back again and again.
It doesn’t hurt that the head of security is such a hottie. If Dixon had any common sense, he’d be scared of the big, mysterious, tattooed Russian.
To be fair, no one ever accused him of being too smart.
