FRAT WARS: KING OF THIEVES

by Saxon James

 

 

Blog Tour

Release Date: November 8, 2021

Cover Design: Story Styling Cover Designs
Genre: M/M College Romance
Trope: Rivals to lovers, forbidden love

Synopsis


We’re basically Romeo and Juliet. But dudes. And without all the dying.



Chad


Being VP of Sigma Beta Psi is wild. I get all the benefits of being in charge with hardly any of the responsibility.

Parties, pranks, and frat politics—college life has never been sweeter.

Until I meet Bailey Prince.

He has the face of a goddamn angel. I don’t know where he came from or why I’m so obsessed.

But I do know he’s a Kappa.

And our houses have a rivalry that’s written into legend.



Bailey


At Rho Kappa Tau, I’m a legacy.

It’s a lot of pressure, but I’ve always been responsible, never had that rebellious need to rock the boat, and I like it that way.

But after a party at Sigma—the jock frat—I meet Chad Doomsen, and for the first time in my life I want to step outside my square.

Our houses have always had a rivalry, but some of the guys seem to hate Chad specifically, and I don’t know why.

He’s surprisingly sweet and kind. At least to me.

I need to stay away. A relationship with Chad would be betraying the very legacy that brought me here.

But I can’t help myself. And it seems, neither can he.



Frat Wars is a romance between MCs from rival houses. It has friendly competitions, no hazing, and a swoony romance kept secret.

Frat Wars : King of ThievesFrat Wars : King of Thieves by Saxon James
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Chad already thinks he is outgrowing the pranks he gets to do with his frat mates. He loves to still do them, comes up with more on the fly, but somehow is aware life is changing. Then he sees the man that he would change it all for.

Bailey is warned about the rival fraternity and its prankster, Chad. The heart wants what the heart wants. Is there anything they can do more than just sneak around and hope to not be caught?

Lots of funny in this fast paced and full of action book. There was lots of heat and lots of pranks. I laughed my way through and loved every page.

Synopsis

 

Drew and Cleevs love hockey, but they love each other more. How can the men find a way to save what matters most?

 

Todd Cleever and Drew Simon are crazy about each other. They started dating three years ago when “Cleevs” was a rookie defenseman for the Chicago Ice. Drew, the team’s captain, was a few years older than Cleevs. Both men were deep in the closet, but it didn’t take long for them to fall in love.

 

Cleevs was traded to the Bethesda Barracudas a year later, causing a heartbreaking separation. Ever since, they’ve skated around the problem with occasional stolen nights together and brief vacations under the guise of “friends,” but two years of living apart have taken their toll.

 

As the holiday approaches, Drew and Cleevs decide things have to change. Still, with their careers and two professional hockey teams in the way, how can they score the game-winning goal and save everything they cherish most?

 

If you like fierce love, a smallish age gap, exciting hockey, and a steely determination to make things work—not to mention enough steam to fog up all your windows and a fantastic HEA—this is the book for you. The novella contains about 43,000 words of sparkling holiday romance.

 

 

Excerpt

 

I arrived at the Hilton about three o’clock. Todd wasn’t due for another couple of hours, so I  took a shower and dressed in jeans and an Ice T-shirt. Afterward, I switched on the TV but was  too excited to be still, and I must have walked back and forth to the window a hundred times.  When the news came on, I settled into a chair to watch. Someone knocked on the door a few  minutes later.

 

Running over, I pulled it open, and there he was. Wearing a gray peacoat and matching  beanie, with a messenger bag slung over his shoulder, Todd looked like a Hollywood heartthrob.  He broke into a crooked grin.

 

“Hey.” My breath had caught in my throat, and I couldn’t get anything else out. “Hey.”

My pulse raced as my sight and hearing went into overdrive. I couldn’t tear my eyes away  from him.

 

“Drew? You think I could come in?”

 

“Oh yeah.” I grinned and stepped aside. “Please.”

 

He rolled his suitcase in and set it and his messenger bag beside the dresser while I made  sure the door was locked. When I turned, he placed a finger on the tip of my nose and traced it  down to my lips. “You get more beautiful every time I see you.”

 

“I’m so glad you’re here.”

 

He reached for me, and I relaxed into the safety of his arms. The relief of being held was  profound. As a hockey player and captain of all my teams since high school, I’d always had to be strong. Before I met Todd, as a closeted gay man, I rarely had hookups because there was too  much risk of being recognized. When I occasionally met up with someone, what we did wasn’t  about affection or support; it was about getting off.

 

“Love you, Drew.

 

“Oh, Todd.” I nibbled his lip, and when he hugged me tighter and kissed me, the heavy  burden of my loneliness fell away. I relaxed for the first time in a while.

 

“I’m happy you could come and spend the night,” he whispered between kisses. I leaned back to look at him. His face was flushed, and his eyes were already dark with  arousal. Sliding a hand up his back, I cupped his head. His mouth twitched as I moved in, and he  moaned softly when our lips touched. I pressed against him, not ready for the moment to end but  needing more.

 

Slowly, he glided his hands down my back to my butt, and we teased each other. When he  licked my lips and probed softly, I opened for him. His tongue reassured me somehow, and I  sucked it while my senses did somersaults. Hints of cedarwood and iris, mixed with his soft  musk, surrounded me. We were both hard, and a thrill flickered up my spine as we rubbed our  cocks together. Tiny, needy sounds filled the air while we enjoyed a taste of what was to come. I  pulled away, took his hand, and started toward the bed. “Come with me.” He didn’t move, and I turned to look at him.

 

“I should shower. It’s been a long day, and I’m not at my freshest.”

 

Taking a step forward, I gave him another kiss and whispered, “I like you this way,  remember? My sweaty D-man.”

 

He gulped a breath. “Lead on, then.”

 

We took our time undressing each other. When I removed Todd’s shirt, I gaped at his  impressive physique as always: brawny arms, massive pecs, and a rippling six-pack. A large  tattoo, a beautiful depiction of a wolf in the forest, ran from the nape of his neck to the middle of  his back. Todd said it symbolized loyalty and family, as well as a willingness to become  ferocious to protect what was dear to him. He’d told me he wanted to have one about us done on  his chest—over his heart—and we’d design it together when our relationship was no longer a  secret.

Ice AngelsIce Angels by Ryan Taylor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Drew wants something to change. He loves Todd but he cannot be with him. It is driving him crazy. There must be a way out of this.

Todd is feeling very similar to Drew. He is in love with him, but they work for different teams and not together when they have time off, even when they are "together." Something has to give or he will go insane.

This story was sweet, and had a great pace to it. I love hockey, so the jump right into the game sucked me right in from page one. These characters were easy to root for. I found myself eagerly turning the pages to get more of the book. I hope we see them again.

BLURB

 

We all have that one person who makes our skin crawl with irritation.
 
When you see them, you just want to high-five them…in the face…with a chair.
For me, that's Gage Calloway.
It doesn't matter how wonderful everyone else might think he is, I can't stand the man.
And if I never have to see him again, it would be too soon.
Unfortunately, the universe likes to torment me.
When my bakery catches fire, he is the one to pull me out.
And when my little kitchen needs rebuilding? One guess who's assigned to do that job?
Yup, Gage freaking Calloway.
I have no idea how I am going to get through the next few months having him in my space all the time.
Especially when my heart doesn't hate him at all.

EXCERPT

“What’s this?” he asked as he took the container from me. His calloused hand scraped over the back of my fingers during the transfer, and I bit my tongue to stop myself from cussing out loud.
 
When my hands were finally free, I shoved them into my back pockets, hoping like hell the tingling feeling coating my skin would disappear soon. “It’s an assortment of muffins. Some savory, some sweet.” I shrugged. “Figured the guys might like a snack.”
 
“Muffins, huh?” Not caring that I was right there in front of him, he removed the lid and lifted the container to his nose before inhaling deeply. “Mmm, can’t wait to get my mouth on your muffin.”
 
It didn’t matter how he meant it; my poor sex-deprived brain only provided me with images of him kneeling before me. Hands threaded through his hair, that sinful mouth driving me insane while he provided me with enough pleasure to make my toes curl.
Oh, for shit’s sake! This was Gage. I seriously needed to get a damn grip. Preferably a penis-sized one with a man who wasn’t Gage attached to it. Slicking my tongue over my teeth, I gave him a piss-off stare. “Dream on! Your filthy mouth isn’t coming anywhere near my muffin.”
 
It didn’t have the desired effect. Being the asshole he was, Gage stared right back at me, the intensity in his eyes flooding me with heat. So much heat. That turned into a raging inferno when he ignored my personal bubble and inched closer still.
 
Gaze bouncing between my eyes and my lips, he murmured, “You sure about that? I bet you’d feel so good watching me devour every bit of it. You’d probably even beg me to eat it again.”
 
Shit! I was fairly certain we hadn’t been talking about food at all and one hundred percent sure I was turned on beyond belief and now needed a change of underwear. He didn’t need to know any of this. Although if he chanced a look at my chest, I was pretty sure my boo bees would be dead giveaways.
 
Lifting my chin higher, I said, “You’re awfully full of yourself.”
 
“You could be full of me too.”
 
 
 
 
Wild Fire (Breathing Hearts #3)Wild Fire by A.K. MacBride
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book # 3 in the Breathing Hearts series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Frankie is just baking as usual when she feels tired and woozy. Next thing she knows she is face to face with a blast from the past she did not want to see. Rescuing her was nice, but coming back for more is just wrong.

Gage wants to move on from the past. He comes back to his hometown with his daughter to start over. Seeing Frankie puts him on alert. Seeing her all the time gets his heart racing. Can they get along long enough to work things out?

This story moved at such a quick pace. The characters are strong with the heated backstory that sets the book on sizzle right from chapter one. Sexy and smart, this was an enjoyable and relaxing read.

Release Day - Riggs

 

Riggs

(Arizona Vengeance, Book #11)

Sawyer Bennett

Release Date: October 26, 2021

 

 

 

 

Synopsis:

 

 Known as the team loner, Riggs Nadeau gives his all on the ice, but nothing extra off it. A beautiful stranger is about to cause chaos in his very structured world.

 

As a professional hockey player, people think I live a charmed life. On the surface, I do. But they don’t know the horrors of my childhood, or the real reason that I have custody of my seventeen - year - old sister, Janelle. And that’s exactly the way I like it. They may think I’m a prick because I don’t like to share, but that’s fine. They don’t know me, and they don’t need to.

 

In an effort to help Janelle get settled in Phoenix and stay out of trouble at school, I set her up with a job at Clarke’s Corner, the local bookstore owned by the girlfriend of a teammate. It’s there that she makes friends with Veronica Woodley, the extremely annoying, arrogant, money - hungry divorcee who I don’t want anywhere near my sister. Janelle insists I’m completely wrong about Veronica, but I refuse to accept that. I have to keep reminding mysel f that that the gorgeous blond with legs for days is off limits.

 

Through a series of events, I start to see Veronica for what she really is — an amazing woman who has survived her own hell to come out even stronger. I have to admit, we’re more alik e than not and the attraction between us burns hot.

 

Maybe I was all wrong about my ability to love and commit, but when the past comes back to haunt me, can I be the man that Veronica, and Janelle, deserve?

Riggs (Arizona Vengeance #11)Riggs by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book #11 in the Arizona Vengeance series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

Riggs is just trying to right by his kid sister. The situation is rocky, as she is adjusting to living with him and a new location. Only with his career, he is not often home. Add to this his burning attraction to the woman so generous with her time and he is slowly going crazy.

Veronica has enjoyed training the new hire to work at her best friend's bookstore. What she did not count on was being attracted to her older brother. He is such a typical hot jock. Well a hot jock who sets her on fire.

This story was such a delight to read. While I absorbed the book almost whole, I found the characters were exciting and had so much depth to them. The pace moved along well, and the heat between the main characters was off the charts. This is a great addition to the series. Cannot wait for the next installment to come out!
