#ReleaseDay ~ Suspicious Behavior (Bad Behavior) #2 L.A. Witt & Cari Z. #review Available Now!

Detective Darren Corliss is hanging by a thread. In between recovering from a near-fatal wound and returning to work at a hostile precinct, he’s struggling to help care for his ailing brother. His partner and boyfriend, Detective Andreas Ruffner, wants to help, but doesn’t know how. And with his own family crises brewing, Andreas is spread almost as thin as Darren.

For cops, though, life takes a backseat to the job. When a stack of unsolved homicides drops into their laps, Andreas and Darren think they’re unrelated cold cases. But when a connection surfaces, they find themselves on the tail of a prolific serial killer who’s about to strike again.

Except they’ve got nothing. No leads. No suspects. Just a pile of circumstantial evidence and a whole lot of hunches. Time is running out to stop the next murder—and to pull themselves back from their breaking points.

#NewRelease Komainu (Of Gods and Monsters #3) by Wulf Francú Godgluck #Review

Hades

His innocence was the fire that blighted the deepest dark, but even he can't save the King from a past stained so black, the devil won't even touch it. 

Years creep up on you, like a rotting hand: cold and wet, it will drag you down into your grave. 

Life will hand you eternity only to rip it away from you. 

Love will slaughter you in the most beautiful way and still manage to nail you in the ass, bareback, when you see him choose the heart of another man. 

But Death... He is a patient soul. He waits, and he waits, and he waits. 

'Cause the bastard knows he will always have the last laugh when he knocks at the door. 

Kemono

Memories were all I had, all I had clung to as my heart turned to stone and finally to dust. 

Now he is mine and I will hold him, and I will kiss him. We will dance and we will laugh, and we will cry... We will be human together... 

I did not know heaven until I knew him. 

There is no greater power that can tear and rip your world apart as when their lips finally kiss yours again. 

But being human comes at a fatal price. 

Sometimes you have to let go of the hand you hold onto so tightly that it brought pain, because that is the only way you can save them from Death. 

Rex

Why did she take them away, hand them back, then force me to choose? 

Is love really that cruel, that she would enjoy tormenting you as you watch the two men you love with your whole heart, kill each other...? 

And then, my worst fear, my deepest darkest nightmare became a living breathing thing. 

Death had come to take from us what we could never replace.

#BlogTour — Antisocial by Heidi Cullinan including Guest Post - Review & Giveaway

A single stroke can change your world.

Xander Fairchild can’t stand people in general and frat boys in particular, so when he must spend his summer working with Skylar Stone, a silver-tongued Delta Sig with a trust fund who wants to make Xander over into a shiny new image, Xander is determined to resist. He came to Japanese culture-soaked Benten College to hide and make manga, not become a corporate clone.

Skylar’s life has been laid out for him since before he was born, but all it takes is one look at Xander’s artwork, and the veneer around him begins to crack. There’s something about the antisocial artist that forces Skylar to acknowledge how much his own orchestrated future is killing him slowly…as is the truth about his gray-spectrum sexuality, which he hasn’t dared to speak aloud, even to himself.

Through a summer of art and friendship, Xander and Skylar learn more about themselves, and their feelings for one another. But as their senior year begins, they must decide if they will part ways and return to the dull futures they had planned, or if they will take a risk and leap into a brightly colored future—together.

#ReviewTour Hear Me Out by Lila Rose (Caroline Springs Charter) #5 Available Now!

Fear keeps the truth away from his brothers. Fear and pain keeps him away from the man he loves.

 

Hawks MC member Maddox “Beast” Lawson had a difficult time growing up. Tired of being ridiculed because of his effed-up brain-to-mouth connection, it was easier to say nothing at all. Living in silence worked out just fine until that b*tch called Fate took his hearing, not only that, but she also threw him into the arms of the man who refuses to acknowledge that one hot night they shared.

 

Jay Conger, Knife to his brothers, loves pussy. Licking, fingering, screwing, he’ll take it any way it’s offered. After one surprising night with Beast, to say he’s freaked out is an understatement. Hell, even bananas have taken on a new meaning, and thinking about a certain someone’s body is too much. Unable to think straight, Knife is at an impasse, not only with his traitorous desire but with his heart.

 

Both lives are going to change. Only will it be for the better?

#ReleaseBlitz My Dark Knight (Kings of Hell MC #2) K.A. Merikan — #review & #giveaway Available Now!

Love or hate. Life or death. No inbetween. No compromise. No rules in love and war.

*

Knight. Party monster. Handsome Savage. Doesn’t do monogamy.
Elliot. Obsessive. Intense. Uncompromising.

Newly single, Knight is done with relationships. All he's interested in is bringing down The Count, an Internet personality who is tarnishing his family name. An opportunity to crush him comes when the audacious clown shows up at the Kings of Hell MC clubhouse to film for his YouTube channel. But when Knight meets Elliot, the man behind The Count, he no longer knows what to do with him.

Knight has never seen a more pathetic creature than Elliot. He’s also never met anyone who needed him more. Skinny, messed up, and a bucket of trouble as thick as tar, everything Elliot does seems to be a wordless death wish. No matter how much Knight hates Elliot’s alter ego, under the makeup and theatrics hides a fragile young guy with a passion for history, and Knight can’t help but catch Elliot every time he falls.

Elliot has bad taste in men. Always hopelessly attracted to violent brutes, his favorite is a long dead serial killer. But he gets more than he’s bargained for when he seizes an opportunity to meet the man of his dreams. The ghost is manipulative and dangerous, offering Elliot all he’s always wanted, for a price he can’t possibly pay.

Elliot is faced with an impossible choice between two men
One alive, one dead.
One carnal and honest, one drizzling sweet, poisoned promises into his ear.
One unwilling to commit, the other promising an eternity together.
And Elliot doesn’t settle for half-measures. He craves a love that is all or nothing, passion that will consume him, and desire to burn him alive. 
Elliot is ready to either get that, or die trying.

#BlogTour — The Rhubarb Patch by Deanna Wadsworth (A Men of Gilead Novel) Rhubarb Crumble recipe inside!

City boy, sci-fi novelist, and recovering pushover Scott Howe doesn’t know what to expect when
he inherits his grandmother’s house outside the quaint village of Gilead, Ohio—but it isn’t an
enormous bald man in nothing but tighty-whities and orange rubber boots shouting at him to
keep his weed wacker away from the rhubarb patch.
Scott has never met anyone like Phineas Robertson: homesteader, recluse Republican. A
tender—if unlikely—friendship grows over the summer while Phin and his schnauzer, Sister
Mary Katherine, teach Scott about life in the country and the grandmother he never knew.
Opposites attract, but widower Phin worries his secret will send Scott running faster than his
politics, and Phin isn’t convinced he deserves a second chance at romance.
Scott is convinced—rural life, and his one-of-a-kind, older neighbor, is the future he wants.
Before he can settle in, his mother drops a bombshell that strains their already tenuous
relationship, and a cousin who believes he is the rightful heir to the property puts Scott in danger.
It’ll take a lot of compromises, and even dodging a few bullets before they’re out of the weeds, but
nurturing something as special as true love always takes hard work.

What if you had everything in the world you wanted…except the man you’d left behind?

 

Jackson Davenport, the charismatic, strait-laced heir to the Davenport fortune, has a secret. One he’s been hiding since he graduated from South Haven all-boys academy—and that secret’s name is Lucas.
