BOOK TOUR & #GIVEAWAY - Not a Game by Cardeno C.
Not a Game - Cardeno C.

An accidental meeting and a misunderstanding lead to a life-altering connection.

An accidental meeting and a misunderstanding lead to a life-altering connection.

A new job, a new city, and hopefully a new life. When chubby gamer Oliver Barnaby receives a job offer from the best boutique game developer in the country, he leaves his family and his less than spectacular existence in Oklahoma without a second’s hesitation. Determined to change more than his career and his geography, Oliver implements a plan to finally land a boyfriend. Step one is improving his skills in the bedroom.

A life that looks perfect on paper, but feels empty in reality. Attractive, successful, charismatic Jaime Snow has a life other people envy. His already booming business is growing. He isn’t lacking in friends. And he has no trouble finding a date. But there’s an emptiness in Jaime’s heart and a hole in his life that only the right man can fill.

An accidental meeting, a misunderstanding, and falling in love. When Oliver and Jaime end up at the same bar at the same time, they each see something they want in the other. Going to bed together that first night is easy. Building the lifetime relationship they both desperately crave will require trust, time, and a little misunderstanding.

lovely story, I just couldn't love it.
Not a Game - Cardeno C.
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.
 
Oliver leaves his home town, moves away for a new job. Now he wants to work on getting a new man. But, he decided, he needs help, professional help, and hires himself an escort to teach him. First time Jaime sees Oliver, he knows he's the man for him. But a huge misunderstanding is no way to begin a relationship, and Jaime works hard to set things right.
 
*insert wailing!* I'm sorry! I really am! I'm just so sorry I don't love this one as much as I loved other books by Cardeno C. Because you know I do love their work, I rave about it often enough, but this one?? It was okay, I just didn't love it.
 
But I did like it. Its a lovely tale of misunderstanding coming out good, of not everyone wanting that rock hard, cover model, Greek god body next to them, about whats INSIDE that appeals to some people.
 
It follows a solid Cardeno C track, with no break up/make up, nutty ex (more on that in a mo!) or murderous friends. Oliver's finding out the truth could have had a little more impact, for me, I thought, but that is just me.
 
It doesn't have that nutty ex. What it does have is a best friend, kinda ex, who really does need his own happy ever after. Jack needs a story, because Jack loved Jaime, Jaime just didn't love Jack enough. And Jack needs to be happy now Jaime is.
 
It's very well written from both men's POV, with just enough heat and steam that is perfect for Jaime and Oliver.
 
I'm just sorry I couldn't love it.
 
4 stars

Not a Game by Cardeno C.
Not a Game - Cardeno C.

In the latest full length novel by Cardeno C. we are treated to a romance story that starts off a bit unusual, but quickly sweeps you away. Oliver is a shy man, overweight, who thinks he is bad in bed due to his ex telling him so. Jaime is a successful businessman, who also happens to be tall, muscular and good-looking. 

 

To put it plainly - I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! The differences between Oliver and Jaime are there to see, and yet it still works. The attraction is instantaneous and hot. The connection is both comfortable and intense. Cardeno C. has managed to convey how not every body is perfect, but everybody is perfect for someone. 

 

With a mixture of romance, sexy scenes, heartbreak and humour, this book was a delight to read. Definitely recommended by me.

[REVIEW] Dirty Fighters (Dirty Shorts) by Kyle Adams
Dirty Fighters - Kyle Adams

Dirty Fighters by Kyle Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Read on April 28, 2014 — I own a copy, read count: 1

 


FIGHT TO FUCK! Who is going to be the BITCH? Only one can top. Losers suck cock!

That intense opening fight scene got my adrenaline pumping as well as my undivided attention. Hooked since the first page. I was just as breathless as Cross, our hard-body protag.

Cross is a prideful and highly competitive guy. I have thoroughly enjoyed the fierce male dominance in such a physical sense. Ample aggression and pent up sexual energy bursting to be unleashed. Raw, all-male rough sexing. Striker was sexy as hell. I wanted him to win the fight against Cross because I wish to hear Cross moan and plead for more cock.

I admit to watching enough naked male wrestling to prepare for this book. It's my newfound passion to spice up my life. Didn't know sports could be this arousing. And... I am still at it! Bad vice I know and takes me away from my books. I just couldn't tear my eyes away from those sexy, muscular, firm male bodies grappling each other to win a fuck. Absolutely love how used and abused the bottom aka loser was. The top's dominance was stimulating to watch.

I want moar cock grabbing, hole pounding books please! Yes, Mr. Adams did a great job here. I bet he watches tons of Naked Kombat.


This is Jessie Colter aka Jesse "Cut-Throat" from Naked Kombat

I have no idea who these are but nice moves.

Jennah Scott – One Night Ride
One Night Ride - Jennah Scott

Reviewed by: Lucy

 

Summary: Brett Colson’s ready to get back into the dating game. Competing in rodeos across the country kept him out of the game, so when he hears about the 1Night Stand service from a friend, he takes a chance.

 

Bull rider Jace Peterson lost his first love over a year before to another man. Hitting his thirtieth birthday, Jace listens to his friends’ concerns; he needs to end his self-imposed dry spell and enlist the help of Madame Eve.

 

Brett and Jace expect nothing more than a satisfying one-night ride. But they’re wrong.

Review: As a fan of the 1Night Stand series, I was not disappointed in most of this story. The characters are likeable, the sex is hot and the story flows. Jace was cheated on by his partner, someone he loved. He is finally trying to move on from this and so has enlisted Madam Eve. His blind date is Brett, ranch owner and nice guy. It is just unlucky that on their blind date, Jace’s ex happens to be in the restaurant.

 

The two have a smokin’ encounter and they make a connection. When the night is over, however, so are they. The story is short, but I had two issues with it. One thing was, why was it brought up that Jace’s ex was in the restaurant when that really went nowhere? And the way it ended, I would have like more of a connection between the two and not circumstance prompting what happened.
