SYNOPSIS

Who knew planning a wedding could be so hard?

He said yes and that had been all that mattered.

So why did he give excuse after excuse to not set a date to say our "I dos"?

Why wasn't he my husband yet?

I didn't know, but by the end of the night, I was going to find out.

No matter what tactics I had to use. Even if they were dirty.

Especially if they were dirty.

Surrender (Voyeur #3.5)Surrender by Fiona Cole
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book # 3.5, in the Voyeur series. This book should not be read as a standalone novella. It is a story follow up for book # 2, and should be read in order in order not to spoil.

Jackson and Jake's story continues with wedding jokes, venues, and potential mothers-in-law. So much going on that the guys seem not to be connecting like they were. Can the past stay there?

Jake has no idea what has Jackson so upset and tired lately. What happened to wanting to be married? What happened to forever? He is going to find out no matter what.

This short and sexy novella was a perfect glimpse into the lives of the guys we were missing. What a great series. So much to these characters and we are so glad to have more time with them. I loved this great read.

Cover & Excerpt Reveal - Pop Star


POP STAR by Eden Finley - Cover & Excerpt Reveal

 

 

Release Date: April 8, 2020

Cover Design: Cate Ashwood
Photographer: Wander Aguiar
Model: Jacob K.

Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance

 

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Harley

What happens when the most successful boy band on the planet breaks up?

How about twenty thousand fans screaming my name.

But the price of fame comes with an increased risk to my safety.

I’ve been avoiding the dreaded B word for as long as I can, but after a close call with a rambunctious fan, I can’t do it anymore.

It’s time to give in.

I need to hire a full-time bodyguard.

And when he shows up, he not only screams badass, he’s another B word I try to stay away from: boyfriend material.


Brix

Protecting people is not what my company usually does, but the boss knows I need money, and the pop star is offering an insane amount to live with him and make sure no more crazy fans break into his house.

I’m doing it for the money and nothing else.

He may be the prettiest man I’ve ever seen, and I may feel sorry for the celebrity life he’s been forced into since he was a teenager, but that doesn’t mean anything.

Just because he fascinates me, that doesn’t mean I like him.

It doesn’t.

Professionalism. I’m gonna live it. Breathe it. Enforce it … Mostly.

EXCERPT:
 

“What’s a word that rhymes with regret?” I ask on the way home.

 

Brix doesn’t respond.

 

Forget. It’s not exact but close enough.” I scribble that down.

 

Brix doesn’t take his eyes off the road. “I can’t tell if you’re being passive aggressive or mocking.” 

 

Neither can I, if I’m being honest.

 

I’m not a dumbass. Hooking up with my bodyguard was stupid. Last night was a mistake, and we shouldn’t have done it. I knew the minute he shut down that I had to make a clean break.

 

I’ve done the forbidden relationship thing before. It’s not as romantic as people think. 

 

So, yeah, pretending it didn’t happen is what’s best. Even if it’s not what I want.

It’s better to end it now before I catch those dreaded feelings.

 

Maybe I can convince my brain that last night was a wicked fantasy instead of a memory, and I can use it for when I’m alone with my hand. Because something that explosive can’t be forgotten. It would be, like, blasphemous to the gods of gay sex.

 

“Harley?”

 

I turn my head toward him. “Huh?”

 

“Are you really okay with what happened, or do you want me to call Trav and tell him I can’t work for you anymore?”

 

I frown. “You want to quit? Over a mishap?”

 

“Tackling you on my first day was a mishap. This … this was crossing basic lines that no employer and employee should ever cross.”

 

“You shouldn’t quit. Like you said, you need this job. I won’t mess that up for you.”

 

“Thank you.”

 

 I pretend to write something down. “Hey, what rhymes with fired?”

 

His gaze flicks my direction, and I grin. 

 

“At least we can joke about it already,” he mumbles.

 

“I like joking with you. As sad as this may sound, you’re not just my bodyguard. I kind of feel like … we’re friends.”

 

“Well, you did blow me. I guess that makes us friends.”

 

“Oh, so that’s what I’ve been doing wrong all these years. No wonder I have no friends. Blowjobs equal friendship. Got it. You should be a life coach instead of a professional badass.”

 

Brix side-eyes me. “Why don’t you have any friends? I thought you Hollywood types all had huge entourages.”

 

“Oh, I have an entourage, but I pay them to be with me, so it feels weird to call them friends. It’s not like I see them outside of them working for me.”

 

“So why is it different with me?”

 

“Blowjob. Duh.”

 

Brix laughs. “No, seriously.”

 

I shrug. “Maybe it’s because I’m with you twenty-four hours a day. The only time you get to escape is on your day off. We’re friends by proximity.”

 

“You know how to make a guy feel special.”

 

I sigh. “I don’t think I’ve had any real friends since I became famous.”

 

Brix’s tone changes and becomes more guarded. “What about that Jay guy?” 

 

“Maybe he counted at first. We were friends for a while.”

 

“And then you fell in love? Is he the one who left you on tour?”

 

I don’t want to get into this with Brix, or anyone for that matter, but that doesn’t stop the words from coming out. “Yeah. It’s a long messed-up story. In the end, he went and found, in his words, true love.”

 

“Ouch.”

 

“Eh. I’m not saying he didn’t have a right to move on. No one likes being shoved in a closet. But I guess … I don’t know. It seemed so easy and quick for him to find someone else. I have to believe our relationship wasn’t as meaningful as I thought it was.”

 

“Other people’s experiences don’t diminish your own. He may not have seen your relationship as anything more, but you did. Therefore, it matters. What you had matters.”

 

Damn him. 

 

I hate that he sees through that stuff. “Maybe I don’t want it to matter. You don’t want to waste the love of your life title on a guy who’s now married to someone else.”

 

Brix snorts. “What makes you think you only get one love of your life?”

 

“Uh, the whole construct of soul mates?”

 

“Pfft.”

 

“Wow. Dignified response.”

 

“Soul mates is a bullshit notion. There are over seven billion people on the planet, and you only get one? Only one of them is your perfect match? That’s a one in seven point five billion chance of finding the love of your life.

 

“Well, when you put it like that …”

 

“Relationships break down. People change. Those who are truly in love can work at it for years and still end up apart. It doesn’t mean they weren’t in love or that they were supposed to love someone else more. It just … is what it is. Heartbreak sucks, but it’s a part of life. Putting it down to destiny or fate or any other higher deity is lazy and dismissive of the effort needed to truly make a relationship work.”

 

“That’s …”

 

“Insightful? Philosophical?”

 

Depressing.”

 

Brix bursts out laughing. “I guess it is a bit.”

Cover Reveal #2 - Deke

Release Date: January 9, 2018

Cover Design: Kellie Dennis / Book Cover by Design

 

Synopsis

 

Ollie

 

Word of advice: don’t come out to random guys in public restrooms. Even if they’re charming and adorably nerdy and offer to help. My family believe I can’t be happy if I’m not out to the world. I have a bitter ex-boyfriend and an unstable NHL career to show for it. A fake boyfriend seems like an easy and quick solution to get my family off my back, and this guy is volunteering. I take him up on it without asking his name. I really should’ve asked for his name.

 

Lennon

 

Word of advice: learn how to introduce yourself properly. In my defense, I don’t recognize Ollie Strömberg right away. I cover football, not hockey. I’m not supposed to see him again, and he’s never supposed to find out I’m a reporter. That all changes when my editor reassigns me. It’s a lesson I should’ve learned by now. Nothing’s changed since high school. Jocks still hate nerds. But even worse, athletes hate journalists. Especially ones who know their secret.

Excerpt:

 

“You want to watch a movie or something?” Ollie asks.
 
“A movie?” The bedside clock reads well past midnight, and I should go back to my hotel and get some sleep. Do I move to do that though? Of course not, because I always do questionable things around Ollie, starting with offering to be his fake boyfriend for a family dinner. “What about your roommate?”
 
“I’m allowed to have gay friends, Lennon.” His eyes seem uncertain, as if he doesn’t quite believe himself. “Or, I dunno, tell him you’re writing another article.”
 
This is walking a fine line, and I get the feeling if I stay, shit’s gonna get messy.
 
 
“I could stay for a movie.” Apparently, my mouth decides to send a big fuck you to the warnings running through my head. “What’ve you got?”
 
He taps away on his screen and pulls up a selection.
 
“Should’ve pegged you for an action, no brains needed, type of guy,” I say.
 
“Fine then.” He taps some more and pulls up a different folder filled with titles like Donnie Darko, Sin City, and Get Out.
 
“Ugh. Way too far the other way,” I complain.
 
“Are you the Goldilocks of movies? Here, look for whatever you want.” He passes me his tablet.
 
I scroll through the genres in his movie file, clicking on a few things but going back to the main folder seconds later. Ollie makes impatient noises, which makes me even pickier. He’s kind of hot when he’s snarky.
 
When I scroll down further, a folder catches my eye labeled in capital letters: PORN.
 
“Good to know you don’t even try to hide your stash.”
 
I jokingly go to click on it, but he must think I’m actually gonna do it. A large hand wraps around my wrist, his grip firm but not painful, and I laugh.
 
“Calm down. As interested as I am to open it, it’s kind of like Pandora’s box. There could be clown porn in there or something, and then you’re not the one who’d be scarred for life.”
 
“Clown porn?” he asks while practically choking.
 
“There’s some really weird shit out there.”
 
He lets go of my hand. “What I want to know is what you’ve been looking up if you landed on clown porn.”
 
“It started out looking at guys in drag, and it went downhill from there.”
 
Ollie pulls back as if contemplating that. “Drag queens, huh? Is that your thing?”
 
“Oh, we are so not getting into this.” And I’m so not confessing the drag thing was out of curiosity. My true fantasy is jocks. Exactly like him. Not going to tell him that either. “You won’t let me see your collection, so you get nothing from me.”
 
He thinks about it for a moment before turning to me. “Well, now I want you to look. I feel like I need to defend my porn choices.”
 
Is he seriously suggesting I watch his porn? With him … like … right there?
 
The smug challenge in his eye almost has me pushing the button, but the slight blush on his cheeks makes me think he’s bluffing. God, I want to know what he’s into …
 
No! Bad Lennon.
 
That would only add to the conflicting feelings I already have for Ollie.
 
The icon mocks us as we stare at it, and then each other, and then away. God, we’re pathetic.
 
I click on the folder labelled Classics just so we can get away from temptation. My entire face lights up. “Wait. You think Thor is a classic? Where are the real ones like Cool Hand Luke and The Princess Bride? This is even more disturbing than your porn choices.”
 
“Hey, you never saw my porn choices.”
 
“I’m still going with clown porn.”
