Adult M/M Romance
Hard Wood (Tool Shed Book 1) - A.R. Steele

Hard Wood by A.R. Steele is a m/m romance, so it may not be for everyone.  Ms. Steele has delivered a book that is well-written.  I enjoyed the cast of characters.  Gabriel decides to audition to be a male stripper.  Ace is a rich boy stripping only because it was fun, until it turned into the job he needed.  Gabriel and Ace's story is loaded with drama, humor and sex.  I enjoyed reading Hard Wood and would gladly read more from A.R. Steele in the future.  Hard Wood is book 1 of the Tool Shed Series and can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

The Dirty Bits from Carina Press give you what you want, when you want it. Designed to be read in an hour or two, these sex-filled microromances are guaranteed to pack a punch and deliver a happily-ever-after.

A new supersexy insta-love novella from USA TODAY bestselling author Jenika Snow that has a gruff lumberjack yelling T-I-M-B-E-R for the woman he’s been waiting for.

The Ash Brothers—they know how to handle their wood.

I’m a hard man. A loner. Or so town gossip says. After having my heart sent through the chipper, I’ve kept to myself. I prefer the quiet of the woods to the ramblings of clingy women who think they can tame a wild mountain man.

Until Mia. Now she’s all I think about.

I should have stayed away. She’s too sweet for a brute like me, but I can’t stop wanting her, picturing her sated in my sheets.

Mia knows just what kind of wood I’m working with. She’s the soft to my hard, the sugar to my bitter bark.

And I love seeing her walk on the wild side.

This book is approximately 15,000 words

For those times when size does matter. The Dirty Bits from Carina Press: Quick and dirty, just the way we like it.
 
 
 
Lets start of saying that this story started off with a bang and a sizzle.This was one of those instant attraction instant love stories.Noah and Mia are instantly attracted to one another and the sexual fantasies they are having with one another are super super hot!
 
Noah has been hurt by a lover in the past an has been withdrawn and keeps to himself but, spotting Mia something has awaken in him after a very long time when things have pretty much been dormant.Mia on the other hand has been struggling of late with her own unhappiness and she is hoping this move is going to improve things for her. Spotting Noah across the room at a diner definitely puts a smile on her face and some pink in her cheeks! Instant attraction and heated looks hell yeah!
 
This stories plot was interesting.This couple had more fantasies with each other and more sex in they heads prior to actually meeting one another and I have to say their sexual fantasies were smokin!
 
For me I enjoyed the characters they were very like-able but the story itself didn't really give you a chance to love them.I enjoyed this short story as the story started out as super hot.I am okay with the instant love story but, a writer for me anyway is suppose to carry that attraction and intenseness and that possessiveness they feel for each other and somewhere along the middle of the story I felt that all flame die out after their first sexual encounter.
 
For me the sexual fantasies each had with one another was hotter than the deed itself.Then after the deed its two weeks later.Something happened in the middle here and they lost me.I guess for me I missed the couple getting to know each other on paper all the things your are learning about your sexual partner .The fun the playfulness the heated looks etc.I think the author should have added something  to that effect in the middle of the story.Two weeks later you understood they are getting to know one another but, we are not seeing it on paper.For me the story would have been more enjoyable had the author carried through with the spark,sizzle, and fireworks as the say  to the very end.
 
3 stars from us
 
 
 
Personal note: Even though this story was not a top favorite I have enjoyed many other of this author stories that she has co written with other authors.I would like to read more about these Ash brothers so were are looking forward to that.

Hard Wood
Hard Wood - Lauren Blakely Hard Wood - Lauren Blakely 3 stars

Zeus is allergic to running. He's not playing Mia's game. Instead, he puts one white paw in front of the other and walks.
And walks.
And walks.
"Dude you're cock-blocking me," I mutter to the cat.
He lifts his face and utters an
au contraire meow.
"Can you try to at least jog?"
If cats could laugh, Zeus would be doubled over as he strolls after the woman.


3 stars for Zeus the cat and his silly chapters

Hard Wood by Lauren Blakely
Hard Wood - Lauren Blakely

 

The queen of double entendre is back with a clever, scandalous and hard to resist anti hero.  Hard Wood is another Lauren Blakely original.  Relevant and at times deep subjects are tackled with humorous dialogue, risque innuedoes and sassy characters. Patrick and Mia are dynamite.  Heat, humor and heart are on display with some wicked fun for good measure.

Harder to fall
Hard Wood (Tool Shed Book 1) - A.R. Steele

Gabriel and Ace meet when Gabe applies to work at the club.  He is very anxious and new, but the audience and the other strippers love him already.  Ace is starting to feel possessive and that is new.

 

Ace does not want anyone else to look or touch Gabriel.  That has never happened before.  There is a lot going on in his life right now, and Gabe seems to help him make sense of it all.  Can they work together, or will it all come crashing down?

 

Really very sweet story.  I love the characters and the way they are so supportive of one another.  The co-workers are more like a family.  Excited to see where the next book will take us!  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
