Blurb

He can’t choose…

Leadership and setting an upstanding example are everything to Wisconsin Wendigos captain David Dickson. On ice, he’s got it all together. Off ice? Not so much. For years he’s been pining for not one, but both of the loyal alternate captains who’ve stood by him through thick and thin.

They’ve always had his back…

Sasha Ivanov and Bo McAllister have always seemed more into each other then into their captain. But when the stress of the season starts affecting David, they’re more than willing to step up and help him deal with it–by whatever means necessary.

He can’t resist…

When Sasha and Bo offer him everything he’s been wanting, David can’t say no, even though he knows it comes with an expiration date. But the more he finds himself fitting into their life, the more he wants what he knows he can’t have.

Can Sasha and Bo find room in their hearts for one more person? Will David let them bring him into their life? Or are these captains doomed to remain just teammates?

Find out in this steamy sports romance novel, featuring a team captain who’s too stubborn for his own good, a defenceman with a heart of gold, and a goalie who never has a problem using his words.

Excerpt

Halfway through his salmon and broccoli at dinner, Bo drops his fork with a clatter. When Sasha doesn’t look up from his own plate, he follows it up with an ostentatious throat clearing.

“Bone stuck in throat?” Sasha asks, cutting off a piece of his chicken breast.

“No. I just had the best idea.”

That gets him a look, Sasha’s eyes narrowed as he chews and swallows. “Okay,” he finally says, his voice far more resigned than it should be for someone who claims to love Bo.

“Okay, hear me out. David needs somebody, but who has time to fucking date at this point in the season?”

Sasha shrugs. “Could fuck teammate. Is what I do.”

“I’m ignoring that, because we both know you love me,” Bo says cheerfully. “Getting back to my point, you know David’s not going to start hitting on some random guy from the team. He takes that captain shit seriously. So we’re going to help him out.”

“Like matchmaker?” Sasha asks, his expression, if possible, becoming even more skeptical.

It’s Bo’s turn to shrug. “Maybe. But in the meantime, we’ll be his temporary boyfriends. Have him over for dinner more often, cuddles, that kind of thing. Keep him from getting so lonely and wound so tight.”

Sasha purses his lips, his face scrunching into his adorable thinking expression. “Does temporary boyfriend mean sex?”

“Can you imagine David going for that?” Bo laughs, picking up his fork.

“Yeah,” Sasha says, his voice gone low and rough in a way that makes Bo freeze, a forkful of salmon halfway to his mouth.

He forces his hand to start moving again. “Goddamnit, Sash. No. The last time this happened the food was cold and disgusting after. Finish your dinner before you start talking dirty to me.”

Sasha grins back at him. “I have good imagination.”

“Fuck you, I know. Eat your damn dinner.”

Book Review & Blog Tour – The River City Chronicles by J. Scott Coatsworth

A big welcome to J. Scott Coatsworth as part of his blog tour with Other Worlds Ink for The River City Chronicles, and thank you for the opportunity to review!

Review

I have yet to read a J. Scott Coatsworth story I didn’t enjoy, and this is no exception. The River City Chronicles was originally written as a serial story on the author’s blog, but this is my first time reading it, and I think it works wonderfully well in this format too. The story starts with introductory chapters from each main character’s perspective, which gives a taste of each of their ‘set ups.’ Then, as the story gets going, all of their stories interconnect and mesh as they meet, and become friends, and in some cases, more. I like the way characters are introduced as they meet with others I’d already ‘met.’ Although this story does have some romance in it, I thought it was more of a story about friendship, family, and the latter being those we choose and make ourselves. The characters feel very real.

I loved the sprinkle of magic realism in the story. It added a little extra special feeling to the story, but wasn’t overused, and made me smile. The settings are very easy to visualize, and I particularly loved the description of the restaurant from Carmelina’s POV during the first cooking lesson. It feels warm and cozy, and very welcoming, and the line that stood out for me to the point I took note of it for this review summed up the scene nicely—“the kitchen brings the memory of the heart.”

I was drawn into the story immediately, and wanted to know more about the overarching story, the characters, and how they would interact. The chapters are a great size, perfect for diving in and out of the story although, as I approached the latter part of the book, I didn’t want to put it down as I wanted to know how everyone’s stories would end. The story is a lovely, easy, feel-good read with plenty of ‘heart,’ and I very much enjoyed it. Although I could guess how some characters were connected to others, and how their stories might unfold in places, it added to my reading enjoyment, rather than detracted from it.

I’d recommend The River City Chronicles to readers who enjoy a feel good story with real characters with a focus on the important of friends and family, both the ones we are born into, and those we choose. 5 out of 5 stars.

COVER-River-City

Excerpt

Matteo stared out the restaurant window into the darkness of Folsom Boulevard. It was getting dark earlier as summer edged into fall. Streetlights flickered on as cars drifted by, looking for parking or making the trip out of Midtown toward home.

The sign on the window read “Ragazzi” (the boys), lettered in a beautiful golden script just two months old. Investing in this little restaurant his uncle had left to them when he’d passed away had been their ticket out of Italy. But now with each passing day, as seats sat empty and tomatoes, pasta, and garlic went uneaten, the worry was gnawing ever deeper into Matteo’s gut.

Behind him in the open, modernized kitchen, Diego was busy cooking—his mother’s lasagne, some fresh fish from San Francisco, and some of the newer Italian dishes they’d brought with them from Bologna. The smells of boiling sauce and fresh-cooked pasta that emanated from the kitchen were entrancing.

They’d sent the rest of the staff —Max and Justin—home for the evening. The three customers who had shown up so far didn’t justify the cost of keeping their waiter and busboy on hand.

Matteo stopped at the couple’s table in front of the other window. “Buona sera,” he said, smiling his brightest Italian smile.

“Hi,” the man said, smiling back at him. He was a gentleman in about his mid-fifties, wearing a golf shirt and floppy hat. “Kinda quiet tonight, huh?”

“It always gets busier later,” Matteo lied smoothly. “Pleasure to have you here. Can I get you anything else?”

“A little more wine, please?” the woman said, holding out her glass so the charm bracelet on her wrist jangled.

“Of course.” He bowed and ducked into the kitchen.

He gave Diego a quick peck on the cheek.

His husband and chef waved him off with a snort. “Più tardi. Sto preparando la cena.”

“I can see that. Dinner for a hundred, is it? It’s dead out there again tonight.”

Diego shot him a dirty look.

Matteo retrieved the bottle of wine from the case and returned to fill up his guests’ glasses. “What brings you in tonight?” Maybe they saw our ad.…

“Just walking by and we were hungry. I miss the old place though.… What was it called, honey?”

Her husband scratched his chin. “Little Italy, I think?”

“That’s it! It was the cutest place. Checkered tablecloths, those great Italian bottles with the melted wax… so Italian.”

Matteo groaned inside. “So glad you came in” was all he said with another smile.


Author Bio

J. Scott Coatsworth

Scott lives with his husband Mark in a little yellow bungalow in East Sacramento, with two pink flamingos by the front porch.

He spends his time between the here and now and the what could be. Indoctrinated into fantasy and sci fi by his mother at the tender age of nine, he devoured her library. But as he grew up, he wondered where the people like him were.

He decided it was time to create the kinds of stories he couldn’t find at Waldenbooks. If there weren’t gay characters in his favorite genres, he would remake them to his own ends.

His friends say Scott’s brain works a little differently – he sees relationships between things that others miss, and gets more done in a day than most folks manage in a week. He seeks to transform traditional sci fi, fantasy, and contemporary worlds into something unexpected.

He runs Queer Sci Fi and QueeRomance Ink with his husband Mark, sites that bring queer people together to promote and celebrate fiction that reflects their own reality.

Sander March is one season away from the pros, or so everyone tells him.

If only Sander had as much faith in his ability as the Cougar coaching staff does. Outwardly, he’s cocksure, borderline bitter, and slightly sarcastic. All that strut and sass hides a wounded soul though. Working to hide a brutal past filled with humiliation, abuse, and a family member who still haunts him, Sander has never found the kind of comfort and understanding he so desperately needs. Until he meets Mateo Castillo, a minor league baseball player for the nearby Elmira Egrets. Mateo and Sander click instantly, and a budding friendship develops between the two athletes.

Mateo then introduces Sander to his boyfriend, Noah Coombs, an aspiring manga comic creator. The three men find themselves bonding strongly, and that slowly gives way to sexual attraction. Eventually, Mateo and Noah invite Sander into their relationship. The path to happiness isn’t going to be easy for Sander as he faces criticism from his friends, teammates, and the press for his choices. The brash young star can handle all that, it’s when his abuser shows up in Cayuga that Sander fears not only for his own safety, but for the lives of the two men he has grown to love. Will Sander’s past tear him away from Mateo and Noah, or will he be able to leave the darkness behind?

Book #1 – Johannesburg – Amazon US | Amazon UK

Blurb

Max Cooper has never known love and uses drink to numb the feelings of rejection he’s faced with. It doesn’t help him in his career as an air steward when after a very drunken night his best friend swaps their flights over so Max can keep his job.


When Max flies out to Los Angeles, his patience is tested when he offers to help fellow air steward and rising drag queen, Dai Zee, with her costume changes at the best drag club in LA, Flamingos. While he watches Dai Zee perform, he catches the eye of a guy in the corner, but fails to find him when the performance ends. An ill-timed text message sends Max back to the bottle, and into the bed of a man he doesn’t know, and doesn’t want to be with.


The next night at Flamingos he finds the man he was searching for, but it’s not as easy as he’d hoped. Antonio Baldini isn’t interested in a drunken Max and rejects his advances until another drag queen, Miss Crystal, plays a hand in getting the two of them together. As Max and Antonio step past the initial confusion, they tread carefully with each other, neither one wanting to get hurt.


Even when Max is back in London, the late-night video calls don’t stop, but it’s when they are reunited in Las Vegas that things turn serious.


Max can’t shake his past, and someone is out for him and his job – trying to stop him from flying altogether. He’s worried about what it will mean for his new relationship if he can’t fly; and whether he can stay away from the drink long enough to be with a man who seems to care for him.


Author Bio 


George was about eighteen when he told his friend that he was going to be a writer. It took him another eighteen years before he finally did anything about it and wrote his first short story. A typical Englishman, he drinks buckets of tea with milk—but no sugar, because he is sweet enough. His Nan told him so.

George lives just outside of London, but close enough to enjoy Soho and the West End, where you will find him in a bar with a pint, in a club dancing into the early hours of the morning, or enjoying a musical in the theater; but more than likely he will be in a coffee shop reading a book or writing a new story. Currently single, but taking applications for future husband position, George enjoys crafting romantic stories in which he hopes that one day, life will imitate art.

Release Blitz – Secrets by S.E. Rose

A big welcome to S.E. Rose as part of her release blitz with Enticing Journey Book Promotions for Secrets.

Title: Secrets
Series: Portentous Destiny Series #2
Author: S.E. Rose
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: June 12, 2018

On a quest to find her biological family, one woman discovers secrets more sinister than anything she could have imagined.

Adopted at three years old and raised in the United States, Lily Stevenson is taking the summer to research her past. She settles into a small Colombian village focused on uncovering her biological roots. What she doesn’t anticipate is losing her carefully guarded heart to sexy media mogul, Lance Cunningham. As the two embark on a journey to unveil the mystery of Lily’s origins, they unravel a dark past that bleeds into the present. What Lily thought was over is just beginning.


Can Lance break through a trust barrier she put up years before, or will the secrets being revealed pull them apart?


“Penny for your thoughts?” Lance says, looking at the list.

“I want to see if I can find Lorena and my grandparents. I can’t figure out why my grandparents wouldn’t have come looking for my mom at the hospital. She was only fifteen. It seems strange. I understand they were likely poor, I mean it’s not a great neighborhood. But still, something doesn’t seem right.”

“Maybe they couldn’t, or they weren’t alive or maybe they were sick or moved? There could be a whole litany of reasons why. Maybe she ran away?” he brainstorms.

“Well, we’re going to find out,” I say, feeling rather determined.

He smiles and takes my hand in his. “I have no doubt you will. But regrettably, I will need to take you back soon,” he says as he looks at the clock on the wall.

I nod and head upstairs to pack my things and shower. As I turn the faucet on and wait for the hot water, I feel Lance’s arms wrap around my waist and he pulls me against him. I can feel his hardness pressed against my back. I turn around and look up at him. He seems so much taller now as I stand naked in his arms. He grins, as though reading my mind, and in a true testament to his strength he very slowly pulls me up his body until our faces meet. I grin.

“Better,” he murmurs against my lips.

“Yes, much,” I whisper back as I wrap my legs around his waist.

He walks us into the shower and holds me under the hot water, kissing me slowly.

“I’m not sure I want to take you back this morning,” he murmurs in between kisses.

“Me either,” I sigh as I press my forehead against his.

“Do you think you could get more days off?”

“Not right now. They don’t have any other volunteers,” I explain as he lowers me until my feet hit the warmed tiles. I talk about the staff or lack thereof as he washes my hair and body. I return the favor all while continuing to talk about the kids and my time volunteering.

“You really love the kids, don’t you?” he asks with a smile.

I laugh. “Most of the time. I guess I just understand them.”

“I think I’m beginning to understand you,” he says, smiling as he brings his lips to mine. As he deepens our kiss, I feel my need for him blossom. I push myself against his hard frame, wrapping my arms around his neck and pulling him closer to me.

“Lily, we aren’t going to finish here if you keep doing that,” he says against my lips.

“I’m not on a schedule this morning,” I say, smiling back at him.

I jump up and wrap my legs around him as his arms come around me tightly. I feel protected by him, safe in our embrace. He turns and leans us against the tile shower wall. I can feel his erection against my entrance and I thrust my hips against him. He smiles at me again.

“I think I created a monster,” he says.

I smirk at him. “I want what I want. What can I say?”

“Oh really,” he says. “Greedy, are you?”

“For you,” I whisper, feeling brave at the moment.

He lifts me slightly and guides me down onto him. He makes love to me slowly, his lips never leaving mine. I get lost in our movements. I can feel his strength as his muscles strain and move against me.
S.E. Rose lives in the DMV. And if you know what that means, then you know where she lives. She currently resides with her husband, two children, and always at least two cats and usually other random creatures her children decide they need.

Release Blitz – Player on Ice by S.R. Grey

A big welcome to S.R. Grey as part of her release blitz with Enticing Journey Book Promotions for Player on Ice.

Title: Player On Ice
Series: A Boys of Winter Novel
Author: S.R. Grey
Genre:  Sports Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: June 11, 2018

Jaxon Holland is more than a top-scoring center for the Las Vegas Wolves—he’s also the biggest “player” on the team. Women love him, flock to him, lust for his sculpted body. 

Yeah, life is good for this hockey player. 

Or it was until lately. 

After blowing a key play in what may have been the biggest game of the season, the fans sour on Jaxon. Good thing memories are short, right? Uh, they’re not when a widely popular sports blogger, known simply as Mr. Hockeypants, calls Jaxon out and places all the blame for the loss on him. 

Life goes from bad to worse, and Jaxon wants to get away. 

Good thing one of his teammates has a beautiful, secluded beach house he can escape to. Sand, sun, surf, and lots of alone time sound good to this disgruntled centerman. 

Only problem is the beach house is already occupied—by beautiful and spunky Cara Milne. 

Cara and Jaxon are off to a rocky start after an extremely awkward first meeting. Yeah, these two pretty much hate each other. But Jaxon, forever a “player” at heart, vows to win his housemate over. 

What he doesn’t know is Cara is Mr. Hockeypants! His worst enemy, the bane of his existence! 

And she’s determined that he never finds out. 

Too bad keeping a secret is more slippery than ice, especially when you start falling in love with the guy you almost destroyed. 

Player on Ice is the fifth standalone novel in the bestselling Boys of Winter hockey romance series.

“Wow, you look rather happy all of a sudden,” he says. 
“I am, Jaxon.” I reply. “I am.”
“Does this mean you reached a resolution?”
“I sure have. I decided to stop with all the overthinking and just go with what my heart’s been telling me to do for a long time now.”
Ooh, now he looks really curious.
“What does that mean?” he asks, our eyes meeting.
I take a deep breath, and then blurt out in a rush of words, “It means I’m tired of fighting the inevitable.”
His eyes bore into me, and I swear he already knows what I mean. He knows I’m referring to him…to us.
Swallowing hard, he steps out from behind the kitchen counter, looking gorgeous, as always. His hair’s a little damp, making it darker than the usual sandy-brown shade. He’s wearing khaki shorts and a royal blue tee, which shows off his bronze skin perfectly. Jaxon’s tan, like me, but so very buff, so freaking hard.
I watch his defined leg muscles flex as he takes a purposeful step toward me.
When he’s less than a foot away, he stops and rasps, “So what is your heart telling you to do at this very moment, Cara?”
I stare at his bare feet, tan like the rest of him.
Then I glance up, chuckling nervously. “Uh, it’s telling me to do a lot of things.”
He whispers, “Name just one.”
Just as softly, I respond, “Well, right now, my heart’s telling me those burgers can wait.”
He cocks a brow. “And…?”
“Hey, you said I only had to name one.”
He shrugs, smirking. “I lied. Tell me one more.”
It’s time to be more honest with him than I’ve been with myself.
I take a deep breath, then say, “My heart’s telling me I should kiss the heck out of you right now…since you’re so freaking close.”
“Shit, sweetheart.” He smiles. “I agree. Your heart is abso-fucking-lutely right.”
Months of confusion reach a moment of clarity. And there’s no stopping us from coming together now.
So we do….

Cover Artist: Aisha Akeju

Blurb

Mike is good looking, charming, and has no trouble attracting men—as long as his clothes stay on. But the moment they come off, something always seems to go terribly wrong. When his sister takes him to a faith healer to fix the problem, he is provided with a spell—and left with a lot of doubts.

But after meeting Kevin, Mike decides to give the spell a try…

Excerpt

This was the first time anyone asked for the lights to be completely out. I mean, there are some guys who like the dark, but they always want some sort of light coming in. It could be a candle, night light, or just a crack from the closet, just something to keep things from being completely black. But not this time. Carlo wanted the lights completely off. I wasn’t sure whether to be offended, or to simply just go with the flow.

But it did kind of bother me, even while we were kissing and rubbing each other all over the place. I tried to forget about the fact that we messed around the last time with all the lights on, but it was still nagging me a bit.

“Everything okay, Mike?” Carlo asked. While I couldn’t see them, I knew his emerald green eyes were pointed directly at me. They were fake, but man, did they compliment him so much.

“Nah, I’m good, just come over here,” I cooed, pulling him up closer to me. We still had our clothes on, so it was easy to grab his shirt and bring him in closer. I wanted to feel his hot breath against my neck, followed by his gentle kisses. The two times we hooked up before, we only kissed, and both times we only had our shirts off. But this time around, I wanted more. I wanted him to take me, to ravage me. To fill me up and not stop until we were both on the verge of exploding.

I could tell that Carlo was a bit surprised, even though I still hadn’t completely adjusted to the dark, but he seemed into it and let me drag his mouth closer to mine. He took his hands and gently placed them on the back of my head, pulling a little on my hair but not enough to cause me pain. “Don’t stop, keep going,” I moaned. Carlo intensified his kisses and started moving down towards my neck, then pulled back and little and began to pull my shirt off. I started on his before my shirt even hit the floor, and now for the first time tonight, we were both finally showing some skin towards each other. After a bit of kissing and exploring, I forgot about the light situation. Thanks to the moon beaming through my curtains and right toward my bed I was able to make out where I wanted my hands to go. Carlo had the body type I loved; bearish, with broad shoulders and big, strong arms. But what got me was his chest. In the moonlight and without a shirt, Carlo was simply beautiful. Even though I wasn’t a bear myself, I could appreciate the slight hairy trail he had going from his chest down to his stomach. I could see that the trail went even further, and I wanted him to reveal more.

Carlo continued to kiss me down my body, but I stopped him right before he got to my stomach. “Let me take off your pants,” I ordered. I was hoping he would be turned on by the dominance in voice and simply obey. “No, you first. I want to show you everything I have to offer you,” Carlo responded, his hands rubbing the top of my shorts, fingers slightly pushing under the elastic. He let it snap a few times before slightly licking his lips. I arched up a bit to help him out, and he obliged by grabbing my shorts at both ends and pulled them off along with my underwear. He placed his hand on my now erect cock, then stopped for an awkward minute.

“Something wrong?” I asked. “No, um, just thought of something,” he replied, giggling a bit before continuing. “Now get ready to have the best sex that you….” He didn’t finish. How could he now that he was giggling like crazy? I wanted to jump out of the bed right then and there, but he still had my dick in his hand, and even though it was getting flaccid, I didn’t want to make any sudden moves and damage myself. “Would you mind letting go? I would like to get dressed.” He did, even though he was still laughing like a lunatic. I picked up my clothes and put my underwear on, then went for the lamp by my bed. Carlo was sprawled out across my bed. While his laughing had stifled a bit, his red face showed that something had amused him to no end.

I slipped my shorts back on and began to gather up his things. “Oh come on, don’t be that way. I’m sorry. We can still mess around. I just need a minute.” The moment he finished his sentence, Carlo began laughing again. He put his hand over his mouth so it wouldn’t be so loud, but it was no use.

“What the hell is so funny? I was good enough for you before. What changed now?” I stared him down hard; so hard that I was able to break his laughing fit up once and for all.

“I don’t want to offend you. You’re a nice guy. I was just taken by surprise. You know how it is with these things,” Carlo stated as he got up from the bed and walked over towards me. “No, I don’t know. I don’t have a clue about what is going on.”

Carlo took my hand and looked me straight in the eyes with his emerald greens. For a second, I almost melted. But then the laughing started going on in my head again, and my fury came back full force. Looking at Carlo’s face, I could tell he had something he wanted to say, but just couldn’t. He kept biting his lip, and you could tell he was thinking very carefully before he spoke again. The anticipation wasn’t helping my tolerance, so I knew that I had to speed things up a bit.

“Just spit it out.” Carlo looked at the floor one more time, then right back at me. “It’s just….well….I…..I didn’t expect it to be so small.” I really don’t remember what happened after that, but I do recall that I was rushing him out in just his underwear, not giving him anytime to put his other clothes back on. He pleaded with me a bit, asking to stay and make it up to me. And I almost did — until he mentioned that his was just used to bigger.

In Sleep State Interrupt, a giant media corporation has taken over the Internet, created an addictive virtual reality called BetterWorld, and controls nearly all information. Politicians do their bidding and a brainwashed humanity serves a privileged few.
Waylee Freid, an unemployed Baltimore journalist with ever-worsening bipolar disorder, is the only hope for a brighter future. She and her countercultural friends bust a notorious teenage hacker out of jail and sneak into a closed presidential fundraiser at the Smithsonian castle, where they hope to record incriminating admissions that will wake up the world. Hunted by Homeland Security, Waylee and her friends must reach a sufficient audience by broadcasting their video during the Super Bowl. But to do so, they’ll have to break into one of the most secure facilities ever built.
