"He's not a wolf."

Devastated by the death of his best friend, Zio is a soldier with one thing on his mind: revenge. Consumed by a conflict that's raged as long as he's been alive, he's had little time or inclination to learn the legends of the shifter world he was raised in. And he certainly doesn't have time to deal with a shifter of a different kind, even if it's for the good of the war effort. For the good of his pack. The fact that he's already crossed paths with the new face in his unit is almost irrelevant.

Almost.

Do no harm. Give life not death: it's the oath Devan was reborn to live by, so when he's sent abroad to embed with a wolf pack as their resident healer, he doesn't hesitate. In the supernatural world, some bonds are instant--soldiers become brothers, pack become family. But others run deeper and before long, Devan's at the mercy of instincts he can't control. Zio's inner wolf is desperate to be with Devan, while Devan struggles to keep the pack safe. But as the war escalates, and new love is tainted by anguish and pain, the battles within might prove the toughest of them all.

"I won't let him die."

Garrett Leigh wowed us again with the start of her new Shadow Bound series, Fated Hearts. Set in the world of paranormal and humans, warring factions, and a group of elusive shifters who attempted to keep balance and order, this book hit all the right notes.

Politics, war, death, destruction, but above all love of family, Fated Hearts introduced Devan and Zio, opposites in nature but fated to be together. I enjoyed the camaraderie of the close-knit wolf clans and the love exuded throughout for their brothers and sisters.

Devan, a member of shadow clan and a healer sought to make life easier by diminishing the physical and emotional pain of the pack he was sent to help. Zio was hot headed, young, and always quick to anger, but the healer in Devan called to him until resistance was futile and the war brought their relationship to the forefront.

The secondary characters added much depth and the world building left this reader wanting for more. I needed to sink my teeth-no pun intended- into the book, as when I reached the end a loud sigh erupted from me in earnest need of more.

Ms. Leigh has an uncanny knack of sucking us in to her world of shifters and paranormals, as her imagination knows no bounds. A must read!

S.E.X. Review~ Wolf Lost by Sam Burns



Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Universal Link - Exclusive to Amazon and Available to Borrow With Kindle Unlimited

Length: 50,000 words approx.

Cover Design: Natasha Snow

Blurb

An omega on the run.

An alpha fractured.

Sawyer Holt can’t go home. The Alpha who has replaced his father wants to use him as a tool to cement his political power, and Sawyer isn’t interested in marrying his father’s murderer.

Dez Sullivan’s leg may never heal from his last mission in Afghanistan, but he’s getting used to that. What he can’t adapt to are the nightmares and the tremor in his hand that the doctors insist is all in his head. Next to that, being a brand new werewolf seems easy, until Sawyer Holt blows into his life. The omega activates his burgeoning wolf instincts in a new way, and they threaten to overwhelm his common sense.

Both men are in Colorado searching for a new start, a new pack, and the safety they’ve lost. Their meeting is pure Kismet.




Sam Burns wrote her first fantasy epic with her best friend when she was ten. Like almost any epic fiction written by a ten year old, it was awful. She likes to think she’s improved since then, if only because she has better handwriting now.
If she’s not writing, she’s almost certainly either reading or lost down a Wikipedia rabbit hole while pretending to research for a novel.

Wolf Lost by Sam Burns was an enjoyable read with little angst and drama, but a lot of quirkiness. A pack formed by bond and friendship, the Kismet pack was made up by three alphas-one born wolf and two made-but all friends. Enter an omega on the run, Sawyer happened to take refuge in an old building currently occupied by the three men, and immediately came under their protection.

Ash, Gavin, and Dez were wonderfully written characters, likable, strong, and a tad bit mysterious. I would have liked to know more about them, but I am also hoping to learn more as the series unfolds and the world building continues.

The dynamics of the four man pack was unique and I quite enjoyed the overall banter between them and the ease in which they accepted each other.

Ms. Burns’ start to the Wolves of Kismet series has me intrigued and wanting more.

Being a new member of the undead sect has its ups and downs, something that newly embraced Akio Lee is finding out first hand. Being able to spend eternity with his beloved Vincente, the man who introduced him to life in the nightside, is a definite up. Having to sneak up and feed on strangers? That’s one of the downsides, and something that Akio is finding difficult to swallow. But what other option is there for a recently wed vampire couple who need blood to survive?

Finding a new donor perhaps? One who comes into the lifestyle willingly, as Akio had done, and is open to the unique and sensual relationship that develops when three men have a blood bond. A man who can exist in both the nightside and the dayside worlds. A man like Dalton Briggs, the tall, dark, and handsome caretaker of the manse Akio and Vincente now call home?

But will the outgoing handyman be willing to offer two vampires his vein, his body, his heart?

S.E.X. Review~ In the Name of the Father by Morticia Knight

I was living a lie. I couldn’t be caught in my deception, or my family and friends would abandon me. But my fears became reality and I was cast away as if I were garbage. Then this man, a stranger, took me home and showed me that love can take on many forms, that I’m not filled with sin or doomed to go to hell because I’m gay. He showed me that I’m not broken. I don’t need to be fixed. What I need is to be nurtured and cared for.

This man showed me that it’s okay to be his boy and to call him Daddy…


Seth was a good Christian son raised in a very conservative church. 

He learned early on that the world is evil and filled with sinners—but the most horrible thing you can be is gay. When his shame is discovered, he’s shipped off to a special camp that fixes deviants like him. Years have passed since then, yet he still runs from himself every day.

Malcolm was a good Daddy for almost ten years before his boy died.

No longer daring to be too close with another man again, he’s avoided clubs and old friends that remind him of a life filled with a joy he can no longer have. Unable to find a purpose in his lonely existence, he spends night after night in a dive bar at the edge of town. However, witnessing a scared young man being harassed by two bullies jolts him out of his misery.

No one messes with someone vulnerable and helpless on his watch… 

Note: In the Name of the Father is a full-length novel with angst and a slow burn romance between an older daddy and younger boy. You can expect lots of hurt/comfort, a daddy with some kinky tricks up his sleeve and a sweet HEA.

Possible triggers: Extreme past abuse involving both physical and emotional trauma.


If you enjoyed Daddy kink with a loving boy, In the Name of the Father by Morticia Knight is the book for you. Malcolm was a Daddy dom, who had previously lost his boy, tragically taken by cancer. Alone and sure he would never find love again, Malcolm was astounded when a chance encounter with a lost young man crossed his path.

Seth was raised in an ultra-conservative and religious house, but escaped his lot in life and forged towards a new life. His first meeting with Malcolm would change his life forever.

I knew the theme of Ms. Knight’s book was a daddy dom and although this was not particularly a favorite of mine, as a total fan girl of M.K. I knew I had to read this. Personal choice, but I have a hard time hearing a grown man call another daddy. I completely understand the power exchange between the two men and the need for one to nurture the other, but…..shivers run down my spine.

But, as always, Ms. Knight delivered a well- crafted book which took me out of myself and through an enjoyable read. I appreciated the external dilemmas and nuances which gave credence to the turmoil and suffering Seth encountered. The author did not gloss over the circumstances but challenged them head on and offered real world solutions. The sad part, I’m sure there are still people in this day and age who think like Seth’s conservative family.

I look forward to reading more of Malcolm and Seth’s story  in future books. Kudos to Ms. Knight for sucking me in and making me enjoy a story which I had reservations about reading, and now you make me wait for book two.

In the Name of the Father will take you through a story of growth and acceptance. Of friendship and love. Of a nurturing relationship in which  consensual and safe were the key, and paramount to the development of the main characters relationship.

S.E.X. Review~ The Arrangement by Alex Jane




Length: 56,000 words approx.

Blurb

1895. New York.

Gabriel Webster’s pack is in trouble. His father’s failing health and his mother’s untimely death mean that the vultures are circling. It won’t be long before his family’s assets are stripped and his pack disbanded. When an offer of help arrives in the form of a marriage of convenience, he has little choice but to accept.

The arrangement would be the perfect solution, if not for one thing. Gabriel is to marry Nathaniel Hayward, the Alpha who was badly injured in the accident that killed his brother ten years before—and the man Gabriel has been in love with for as long as he can remember.

Trapped in a business arrangement masquerading as a marriage — in a strange, empty house with a damaged husband who barely tolerates him — isn’t what Gabriel expected from life.

But sometimes the last thing we want is the beginning of something more.
And an ending can be the start of something beautiful.






About Alex

After spending far too long creating stories in her head, Alex finally plucked up the courage to write them down and realized it was quite fun seeing them on the page after all.

Free from aspirations of literary greatness, Alex simply hopes to entertain by spinning a good yarn of love and life, wrapped up with a happy ending. Although, if her characters have to go through Hell to get there, she’s a-okay with that.

With only a dysfunctional taste in music and a one-eyed dog to otherwise fill her days, Alex writes and walks on the South Coast of England—even when her heart and spellcheck are in New York.

I was in love with the Alphas’ Homestead series and now have a new favorite in The Arrangement, A Homestead Legacy series. Gabriel and Nathaniel rivalled any wolf pairing that I have previously read.

When Gabriel’s pack dwindled, the only real solution was for marriage to another pack alpha. Enter Nathaniel. Scarred emotionally and physically, the two men knew each other as children- Gabriel’s’ brother being Nathaniel’s best friend. Tragedy tore the friendship apart, and necessity brought them back together.

Gabriel’s easy going and loving spirit complimented the exterior gruffness of Nathaniel, knowing that inside, the man radiated tenderness. He just needed the right mate to bring out the best in him.

Ms. Jane dove into a beautifully written historical romance of men who needed to heal not only on the outside but on the inside. A light was lit and sunshine was brought back into Nathaniel’s life as Gabriel’s careful handling was of the nature of a shy colt. Ms. Jane allowed the characters to guide her and pen a timeless love story; where arrangements can sometimes turn into beautiful romances.

The secondary characters- Nathaniel’s pack- were an exceptional addition to the overall storyline. They added dimension and depth, especially into the understanding of Nathaniel’s temperament. Tad (Alphas’ Homestead) made an appearance, and it was wonderful to catch up with him and his mate, even if in a small way.

The Arrangement was beautifully written and should be immediately read.

Single Dads Series 

Book #1 - Single -  Amazon US | Amazon UK | Universal Link

Blurb

When the world labels a man and judges them blindly, is it possible to ever find love?

Firefighter Eric is on the front line, battling the threat of nature’s destruction in the California grasslands alongside his CalFire team. Focused and calm, even in the direst of situations, he has a strong affection for his fire truck, loves his career, and has best friends he can rely on. All he needs now is love, but that seems to be impossible to find. At his friend’s wedding. Eric falls in lust at first sight with the shy, slim and sexy Brady, even if Brady isn’t the type of guy he usually goes for. What Eric longs for is an equal in his bed, not a smaller guy who might want Eric to role-play big strong firefighter every time they have sex. He wants to find someone he can be vulnerable with, someone who will love him for his soft heart and quiet ways.

Brady’s life plans grind to a halt when his niece and nephew lose their parents in a tragic accident, and he becomes a dad overnight. His Developmental Coordination Disorder rules his life, but he fights both DCD and the fears that chase him every day, to give Maddie and Lucas a home. Agreeing to go to a friend’s wedding is a decision he regrets long before he even gets there. But, he refuses to give in to his fear, even if he might do something that makes him a target for people’s comments and laughter. Meeting Eric, a huge man with a gentle voice and a flair for chivalry, he falls hard. Now, if only he can let himself get past his panic that Eric would never want someone like him, then maybe he could fall in love for real.

Single Dads: Today by R.J. Scott was sweet, sappy, and sexy. We met Brady in book one; Ash’s online friend in the Single Dads forum. The series followed the lives of three first responder/heroes of society; Sean the doctor (married to Ash), Leo, police officer, and Eric, firefighter. In Today, Eric and Brady receive their HEA.

Brady suffered from DCD, Developmental Coordination Disorder, and feared his disability would interfere with his life as it had done for most of it. To add to Brady’s stress, he was sole guardian to his niece and nephew- a tragic accident took his sister and her husband.

Eric was larger than life, but extremely gentle. His demeanor set Brady at ease and his tender no nonsense nature endeared Brady’s children.

I adored both men and the dynamics of their relationship. They took precarious and insurmountable situations and dove both feet first to accomplish something special and find love.

Sappy at times, but the overall theme was developed and gave insight to someone suffering from DCD and the challenges faced and overcome.
