My Rating - 3.5 Stars!

Broncos and Bondage is a fun, light BDSM romance between two men who meet at a rodeo. A short read, it's cute and sweet, as Kurtis and Will fall for each other instantly. Their story includes being closeted, and a short time together. It's nothing surprising, but it's good when you're in the mood for something easy and entertaining.

Spurs and Spankings is a fun second chance romance, between two men who's kiss was interrupted years ago. It's hot with some light humor, and a lot of trust issues, as Miguel's been burnt in the past. It's a super sweet short read and is my favorite of the series.

Buckles and Blindfolds is a fun little age gap romance. Rick and Quentin are definitely fun together sexually, with a little bit of light kink thrown in. Adding to the fun, the author does a great job combining this sweet romance with an intriguing mystery.

Goalie Interference (Hat Trick #2) by Avon Gale & Piper Vaughn








Blurb

It’s goalie vs. goalie in this brand-new enemies-to-lovers hockey romance from Avon Gale and Piper Vaughn…

Ryu Mori has had a stellar season as goalie for the Atlanta Venom. So when he’s called into management’s office, he’s expecting to hear he’s the new starting goalie for the team, not that some new guy—an incredibly hot, annoyingly bratty rookie—is here to compete for his spot.

Not everyone gets to play in the best league in the world. Emmitt Armstrong knows that, and he’s not about to waste the opportunity after grinding his way from the bottom to the top. If the Venom is looking for a meek, mild-mannered pushover, they’ve got the wrong guy.

Ryu doesn’t want to admit the other goalie’s smart mouth turns him on. Beating Armstrong at practice feels good, sure, but there are other, more fun ways to shut his rival up.

In this league, it’s winner takes all. But there’s more to life than winning, and if Emmitt and Ryu can get past their egos and competitive natures, they might just discover they work better as partners than they ever imagined possible.

One-click with confidence. This title is part of the Carina Press Romance Promise: all the romance you’re looking for with an HEA/HFN. It’s a promise!

This book is approximately 72,000 words

Goalie Interference, the second book in the Hat Trick series, has everything I love about an Avon Gale and Piper Vaughn book. There's a great hockey story, two intriguing main characters, and some hot sex. 

In this story, a fun, no-strings-attached arrangement leads to more as the lines start to blur. I always enjoy when casual boyfriends turn into a real relationship without the men even knowing. Personally, I love the scene where they talk about wanting more. 

Emmitt's new to the team and finds himself competing with Ryu for the goalie position. As usual, they always have to fight, on and off the ice. They're rivals on the ice so this is normal for them. But best yet, fighting gets them hot, which is always a fun read.

For anyone looking for a
book with diverse characters, this one fits the bill. One's a black man, the other is Japanese/American. The lack of diversity in the NHL is well explored.

I love everything about this story. Course I have a thing for athletes, and this one met all my expectations and desires. Ryu and Emmitt are so damn hot together. And don't forget the beauty of their dares. I'm certainly not going to give anything away, but damn, I love their dares.

One big part of their story involves their parents, and the lack of support they receive from them. Parental involvement has the power to make or break someone, and these two definitely struggle with their parent's expectations. 

Goalie Interference is a great enemies to lovers romance. If you enjoy closeted athletes, make sure to check out this Avon Gale & Piper Vaughn collaboration. The second book in their Hat Trick series, it is easily read as a standalone.

Doctor's Orders (Paint #3.5) by Emma Jaye








Blurb

Cutting, coke, calling Nate.
All three would help the clawing anxiety caused by the upcoming trial of Alex’s father. All three would cause Dr. Cooper to rush home from his life-saving job to deal with his neurotic boyfriend.
Adding watching kink to his list of coping techniques, particularly his secret medical fetish, helps until a little voice in his head persuades Alex to try one of his fantasies.
Who knew that adult stars lie about their innocence and that acting out scenes can have horribly awkward, painful consequences?
It can also lead to your dreams coming true.

My Rating - 5 Stars!

Aww, I just adore Emma Jaye's Paint series. Doctor's Orders, book 3.5 in the series, is a short, hot read.

This is the story of Alex and Nate. Alex is suffering from major anxiety about his father's upcoming trial. After already getting help from Nate to kick his drug habit and his addiction of cutting, now Alex needs to find a new outlet for his current anxiety.

Their story includes the use of pain for sexual pleasure, especially sounds. It's hot, and oh yeah, hot. 

The author does a wonderful job developing everything in this short story, including the men and their sexual desires. I highly enjoyed Doctor's Orders, as well as the rest of this Paint series.



RELEASE BLITZ - Coast to Coast (Arizona Raptors #1) by RJ Scott & VL Locey








Length: 57,412 words 



Cover Design: Meredith Russell





Blurb


When opposites attract, it’s not just the team that’s in for a shake-up.


When a stipulation in his father’s will throws Mark back into a family that disowned him, he has only two things on his mind; buying his way out of contractual obligations and running in the opposite direction as fast as he can. When neither option pans out, he finds he is now a one third owner of the struggling Arizona Raptors hockey team, and that is just about the worst thing he could have happened to him. Not only does he hate hockey, but the Raptors are a bottom-of-the-league team, rife with jealousies and anger in a locker room that only knows self-pity. How is he supposed to help turn things around when the only way to start fixing things is to form an alliance with the estranged siblings he’d run from fifteen years earlier?

Then there’s Rowen Carmichael, a stubborn, opinionated, irritating man with superiority issues and questionable taste in music. Butting heads with Rowen, who he’d never even wanted to hire in the first place, is one thing, but there is no way in hell that he will allow the growing attraction to the new coach become anything more. Until with everything on the line, he has to make decisions that will change his life forever.

After years of collegiate coaching, Rowen is given an offer that he simply can’t refuse, although perhaps he should. When he’s presented with the chance to take one of the worst teams in the league and mold them into a future cup contender, the challenge is just too alluring to pass up. He leaves his beloved Ontario behind and moves west to the arid city of Tucson where he is faced with a broken team, shoddy management, and players overflowing with resentment and bigotry.

Never in his twenty years of hockey has he ever seen such a raging dumpster fire of an organization. Yet there’s something about this team and this city that compels him to roll up his sleeves and start dismantling. He has his eye on a new associate coach that’s bound to makes waves, and several key players who should be sent packing. Now all he has to do is convince the new owners of the team that his choices are for the best. If only Mark Westman-Reid, one of three siblings who now own the Raptors, wasn’t so damned rock-headed, so damned snooty, and so damned appealing his job might be a bit easier.
