Level UP - Annabeth Albert

Landon absolutely did not want to do this calendar shoot.  If the photographer had not known how to coax him out of his shell, it could have been a disaster.  Afterwards, he realizes he is attracted to the quiet photographer and wants to spend more time with him.

 

Bailey is immediately attracted to Landon.  He appreciated the qualities that make him the shy almost recluse of a professor that he is.  After spending time gaming together - they realize this could be worth a shot.  Now if they can just put past pain and hurt behind them.

 

I felt like these characters were a great mix.  I loved the reference to the amazing Gaymers series also!  This story unfolds at a rather steady pace.  The heat is obvious, but the solution is not.  As always, this author brings us a book that makes us smile.  Even after the storm.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Synopsis:

 

Josh Sheehan is unlucky in love and now… newly unemployed. He’s not sure what to do next, but he’s sure he should give up on romance. Especially after last time. His friends warned him that falling for the hunky Irishman was a bad idea. Josh can’t help feeling torn even though he knows it’s best to move on. But when an unexpected dose of family drama blindsides him, Josh finds himself leaning on the one man he’s supposed to forget.

 

Finn Gallagher is driven by success. He makes no secret that building a name for his tech company is his number one goal. Finn left home a decade ago with a ton of regret, a heavy heart, and a vow to never repeat the same mistake twice. However, there is something undeniably appealing about the self-deprecating man with the silly sense of humor that makes it difficult for Finn to remember why falling for Josh is a bad idea. It soon becomes clear they’re both in deeper than they intended. There is no way to remain untouched. And there is so much to gain, if they’re brave enough to lean in.

Leaning Into Touch (Leaning Into, #4)Leaning Into Touch by Lane Hayes
My rating: 3 of 5 stars


This book is technically the 4th book in the series, though it is labeled as book #3 in the Leaning Into Stories series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. To avoid spoilers and have a greater understanding of the series, I recommend reading these books in order.

Josh is unsure what he wants to do with his future, now that his current job is complete. He is trying to work this out as he runs into an ex that he has never really gotten over. Can he trust his feelings to try again with Finn, even though he is a mess about the rest of his life?

Finn never wanted to say goodbye in the past to Josh. Running into him repeatedly lately feels like fate taking a hand. Can he convince the skittish man to give him another chance?

This story just stole my heart. These characters so obviously belong together. I loved the very real heartache they expressed. I also felt the heat with the sexy times. Really good read and addition to the series. The narrator did an amazing job on the different voices, where you can tell each character apart. Was a great experience, as the different accents, and inflections were very heartfelt.

Meet the Author:

 

Lane Hayes is grateful to finally be doing what she loves best. Writing full-time! It’s no secret Lane loves a good romance novel. An avid reader from an early age, she has always been drawn to well-told love story with beautifully written characters. These days she prefers the leading roles to both be men. Lane discovered the M/M genre a few years ago and was instantly hooked. Her debut novel was a 2013 Rainbow Award finalist and subsequent books have received Honorable Mentions, and were winners in the 2016 Rainbow Awards. She loves red wine, chocolate and travel (in no particular order). Lane lives in Southern California with her amazing husband in a newly empty nest.

Meet the Narrator:

 

Nick is an award winning narrator with a fan following for his work in fiction, specifically in the romance genre. His performances in two of Amy Lane’s books, Beneath the Stain and Christmas Kitsch, made him the recipient of Sinfully M/M Book Review’s Narrator of the Year – 2015. When he’s not in the booth, Nick enjoys spending time with his wife, Jessica, and kids, (aka their beagle Frank and cat Stella), drumming in his cover band, exploring rural back roads with his wife on his motorcycle, or being enthralled in a tabletop role playing game with his friends.

Acupuncture for the Treatment of Opiate Addiction

Only the best services and treatments are provided by California Top Rehab to its global clientele. There is no question about the fact that traditional rehabilitation facilities cannot provide the customized treatment that California Top Rehab offers to people who are suffering from drug or alcohol dependency. Most traditional rehabs are dependent on government support that is why they cannot afford the same amenities that are provided by luxury rehabs.

California Top Rehab is well known for providing alternative treatment methods to their patients. When rehabilitation centers apply the cookie-cutter treatment they often fail to help the patient because it fails to address the underlying reasons behind the addiction. People have unique personalities meaning that a custom designed treatment must be provided to gain the most effective results.

Acupuncture is one of the holistic modalities that California Top Rehab uses in the treatment of opiate addiction. Acupuncture has been practiced by the Chinese centuries ago for various clinical conditions. Thin solid needles are inserted into specific parts of the body to treat different disorders. This alternative treatment method is now being widely practiced not only in China but Western countries as a complementary therapeutic intervention.

There are 3 known advantages on the effectiveness of acupuncture in the treatment of drug addiction. When acupuncture is used on a patient, who is dependent on opiates, there are no known side effects that will increase the sufferings while on the road to recovery. Second, opiate relapse can be prevented through the use of acupuncture. Third, acupuncture can be use for pregnant and parturient women.

Based on the observations of Dr. Wen in Hong Kong, when acupuncture is combined with electrical stimulation at 4 body points and 2 ear points, the symptoms of opiate withdrawal are relieved. When self sticking electrodes are placed over the skin on the acupoints followed by electrical stimulation, it can prevent relapse of heroin use and ameliorate opiate withdrawal signs.

More recent studies have revealed that acupuncture helps reduce the effects of positive and negative reinforcement associated to opiate addiction. However, future researches will better determine the extent of the influence of acupuncture therapy in regulating dopamine and other neurotransmitters.

Secrets
Off-Campus Setup - Maria Vickers

Levi is finally getting to pursue his dream.  He has arrived at college with a plan.  Until he finds he may not be able to live where he thought.  Now he has to hurry or go back home.

 

Nathan knows it is time to grow up.  He has not looked forward to living the life his parents have chosen.  He wants to choose his future.  When he and Levi crash into one another it is a jaw dropping, eye opener.  Will the secrets come out and change the course?

 

Sweet and tender, this story starts out slow and picks up steam.  These characters are learning to become the young adults they know they can be.  What they find is they can be stronger as a team.  Navigating emotions are always hard, it helps to have someone in your corner.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
