S.E.X. Review~ Steel Trap by L.M. Somerton

Book five in The Wyverns series
Secrets don’t stay hidden forever.
Hatchet has a thing for the enigmatic Mr. Smith, Horatio Trap’s spokesman. He’d love to get his hands on the pretty man and show him how good it feels to take orders for once rather than hand them out. He’s had his eye on Smith for years and he’s running out of patience.
The Wyverns’ involvement in the drug trade is limited to stealing money from the cartels—they don’t want junk peddled on their turf. When Trap orders them to destroy a crack cocaine factory in Phoenix, they are happy to oblige. But Smith throws a spanner in the works by posing as a potential buyer, putting himself in mortal danger.
Hatchet and The Wyverns come up with a plan to fake Smith’s death, muscle in on the deal and convince the cartel to do business with them instead. But when Hatchet’s cover is blown he’s left to save a bunch of illegals, destroy the drugs and wipe the factory from the face of the planet. It’s all in a night’s work for The Wyverns—but there are still secrets to uncover and the mysterious Horatio Trap and his mind games can’t stay hidden forever.


The Wyverns were back to wreaking havoc for the greater good in L.M. Somerton’s Steel Trap. Mr. Smith, Hatchet, and the rest of the crew, along with the mysterious man who pulls the strings were a part of this new installment.

Hatchet wanted Mr. Smith and after the debacle in Mexico, he finally had the man in his bed- even if Hatchet slept on the couch. Hatchet’s straight forward attitude let Smith know his intentions, and he went for what he wanted. Lucky for Hatchet, Smith desired him and the two men soon fell into a rhythm of sex and lust.

What I most enjoyed about this book, was the nuances of intrigue and good & bad guy intermingled with sexy characters who knew exactly what they wanted.

A good mystery with a dose of between the sheets was just what Ms. Somerton delivered and delivered well!

No spoilers, but a wonderful ending leaving the series wide open for more to come. Steel Trap was a wonderful addition and I recommend reading the books in order.

S.E.X. Review~ Finding Sanctuary by Morticia Knight

Francesco might not know a thing about being a submissive, but for Master Theo—he’d be willing to learn anything.

Living on the streets of 1920s Los Angeles and pleasuring men in dark alleys for his survival is not how Francesco had thought his life would turn out. But he’s filled with hope that someday—if he learns how to be a respectable fellow—he can make a home for himself and maybe even find a man he really cares for who also cares for him. In the meantime, he hustles to get by and looks for the good where he can find it.

Theo’s existence is safe and predictable. He indulges in his perverse nature at his friend Saul’s sadomasochism club on Hampton Road and negotiates contracts for the Hollywood players and studios. When an enticing little grifter crosses his path one day, the encounter unnerves him. Not because he gets conned, but because the refreshingly open and unaffected young man holds a mirror up to Theo’s own dreary existence. Theo might have plenty of material wealth, but his wealth of spirit can’t compare to the delightful Francesco’s.

Theo rescues Francesco from a dire situation and brings him home. If nothing else, he can at least find the desperate young man some decent employment. Instead, they both find themselves increasingly drawn to each other. But until Theo introduces Francesco to what being a submissive means, he doesn’t dare give his heart away. Francesco has yet to discover the secrets that are hidden behind the walls of the Hampton Road Club.

Publisher's Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of the Hampton Road Club series. This instalment is a prequel to book one and can be read first.



Since meeting Francesco and Theo in the Hampton Road Club series, I have longed to hear their story. Finding Sanctuary by Morticia Knight did not disappoint in conveying their relationship and the couples’ status which they achieved.

Individually, Theo and Francesco were delightful characters. Both enigmatic, larger than life. Together, they soared and brought a new dimension to the series and to each other.

Theo and Francesco were in the other books, but we never received a full glimpse into how they came together and the life Francesco led prior to his involvement with Theo. Well done, Ms. Knight in tying the over-arching themes together.

As always, the 1920’s nuances were well- researched, the backdrop, the mannerisms, and the vocalization of the characters. I especially found the sadomasochism descriptors well defined, as the 1920’s was the start of the world of BDSM as we know it today.

Francesco’s positive attitude and ever-present cheer radiated through the pages, even in times of distress. And Theo’s discovery as a dominant and master cultivated the relationship and the need for the men’s special lifestyle.

No author has drawn me into the historical world of BDSM as Ms. Knight and even though this is the final book in the series, I implore her to regale us with more.

Although the book is number 6 in the series, Finding Sanctuary was actually a prequel. BUT DO NOT read Finding Sanctuary first- read books one-five, then this book. You will not be disappointed in reading the entire Hampton Road Club series.

S.E.X. Review by Jessie~ Drifting Sands


As he approaches his fortieth birthday, Justin Warfield feels alone, drifting like the sand that blows along the beach near his family's hotel. He has done exactly as his father wanted. Married the right girl and carried on the family tradition of running the Warfield Hotel. On paper things seem perfect, but happiness hasn't been a part of his life for a very long time.

Marcus Drummond once spent a summer with his best friend Peter at the Warfield Hotel and fell hard for Peter's much older brother. Five years later he's back, and this time he hopes that Justin will see him as more than his kid brother's friend.

Sparks fly when the two meet again, but there are a few things standing in their way. The closet that Justin has himself buried in and someone on a killing spree, dumping bodies on the Warfield beach . . . victims that indicate Justin may be involved in some way.



Drifting Sands (The Warfield Hotel Mysteries) by C.J. Baty was a true joy to read.  The setting was pre-civil war plantation style hotel on the beach of Beaufort, South Carolina.  Peter the eldest Warfield was running the hotel while he waited on his bother Peter to finish school.

Peter and his friend Marcus come back to the Warfield to find a murder commented near the hotel. As things become more serious, it seems Justin is somehow involved in it all or is he really. Each man has a reason to find the truth but will it be what they think in the end.

Let me just say, I love reading this first one of the series and look forward to the next one Crashing Waves. This is a continuing story, so I strongly recommend reading them in order.

This is for anyone who loves a truly good mystery.  Ms. Baty keeps you guessing throughout the entire book. There is a romantic element to the story as well that is well thought out and truly moves the story forward.  I hope you will check this book out and enjoy it as much as I did.

S.E.X. Review by Jessie~ Crashing Waves


Justin Warfield ran away to Italy to put the events of the previous summer and certain dark-haired private eye behind him, to no avail. If anything, he can't help but rehash what happened over and over. When he finally returns to South Carolina, the hotel he runs with his brother has suffered a series of incidents that are starting to look less accidental after a death threat is received.

Not satisfied that Moses Lee and his local police will find the culprit, Peter Warfield calls in the services of his good friend Marcus Drummond to help. Marcus is torn. He wants to help his friend, but he also knows that if Justin has moved on after their failed flirtation last summer, he will be devastated.

Tensions mount as danger seems to follow them at every turn, stalking them as they get closer to solving the mystery of who is behind the sabotage of the hotel.





Crashing Waves (The Warfield Hotel Mysteries) by C. J. Baty is the next in the series. Things start going wrong at the hotel and the younger brother Justin calls in his college friend Marcus to help solve the problems. Peter has secluded himself at the old family home after the death of his wife. Justin fears for his bother as things get more dangerous.

The question becomes- will the feelings between Peter and Marcus flair back up or is it too late for them. You will just have to read the second book and find out. I love a good who done it with a romance. I look forward to the next book in the series.

S.E.X. Review~ All or Nothing by Felice Stevens

SBPRBanner-AllorNothing-BT.jpg

All or Nothing an all-new, steamy MM romance by Felice Stevens is available NOW!

AllOrNothing-400x600

All or Nothing by Felice Stevens Publication Date: October 3rd, 2017 Genre: Contemporary MM Romance

A past he couldn’t forget

Adam Barton is living his dream of working as a firefighter in his small Texas town, but a tragedy from his youth continues to haunt him. He decides New York City is the perfect place to start a new life and joins the FDNY, living and loving his own way—no strings and nothing personal. Until he catches sight of Rico Estevez, the sexy chef with the mysterious smile who rocks his world. After one explosive night together, Adam craves another….And then another. The more he and Rico are together, the more Adam wants him.

A future he never imagined

Rico Estevez is living a lie. For years he’s hidden his sexuality, afraid to hurt the career of his politically ambitious father. He’s the perfect American―the best schools, top of his class and most importantly, to his father, a successful businessman. Who needs a boyfriend when sex is so easy to find? Starting a torrid love affair with Adam Barton isn’t a problem; neither one is looking toward forever. But Rico’s father is about to get the chance of a lifetime and Rico feels forced to play by his rules.

Rules are made to be broken

Adam proves more unforgettable than Rico ever imagines, but he gives in to family pressures above personal desire. When a fire reunites them, both men discover their passion for each other hasn’t died; rather it’s stronger than ever. Want turns to need and something more dangerous to their hearts—love. Adam and Rico know if they want to have it all, they can let no one and nothing stand in their way of a life together.

Excerpt:

“I don’t know why it’s been so hard to forget this. I should become numb to it like the other guys.”

“That’s not who you are. You care about people. It’s why you do your job so well.” Surprised at Rico’s insight, Adam gave him a shy smile. “I didn’t think you noticed.” “I noticed.” The song ended, yet they remained on the dance floor, with Rico half-hidden in the shadows, silent yet with a presence so overpowering, Adam couldn’t help but be drawn to him. Rico reached up, grasped the nape of his neck, and pressed their mouths together, and as always, it took only the touch of those firm lips to crumble his defenses. They remained on the dance floor, kissing until the sound of whistles and clapping brought Adam back to reality. Shrugging it off, Rico took his hand, and they returned to the bar, where their burgers awaited them. That revelation by Rico had shaken Adam, and he chewed and swallowed his food, sneaking sideways glances at Rico, frustrated at his inability to gain any sense of Rico’s thoughts behind that neutral mask. “So how long have you two been dating?” Dale wiped up the counter, getting rid of their empty plates. Holding his breath, Adam waited for Rico to answer.

“It’s not like that. We’re friends.” “Yeah.” Adam gave Dale a weak grin, but by the bartender’s dubious expression and quirked dark brow, Rico’s explanation didn’t go far toward convincing Dale.

“Whatever you say, Rico.” He set a fresh foamy glass of beer in front of each of them. “Here’s to your kind of friendship. I’d like to find it for myself.” “I need to settle the check. Here’s my card.” Rico scowled and flicked the card over to Dale, then took a long drink, finishing half his beer in one gulp. Not once had he looked at Adam since they’d sat down from dancing. Unsure what to do or say, Adam sat quietly and finished off his drink while Rico signed the receipt. When Rico got up to leave, Adam followed his lead and shook Dale’s hand. “Thanks for everything.” “No, thank you. And take care of him. He’s kind of a mess.” “You coming?” Rico’s face was a storm of emotions. Without responding to Dale, Adam hurried outside to join Rico, who’d already left. “Rico, wait up.” Rico halted and turned, his face no less dark than earlier, but Adam recalled his words on the dance floor.

“Uh, thanks for dinner. Do you want—” “Come back with me?” Rico crowded close, his breath smelling sharp from the beer, and Adam wanted to taste his tongue. “Spend the night?” While in Leary’s, Adam hadn’t been certain he’d be invited back to Rico’s, but he wasn’t about to question his luck right now. “Yeah, if you want.” Rico ran his nose down Adam’s cheek, and goosebumps prickled up his arms despite the warmth of the evening. “I want,” Rico whispered. “I want you.”

All or Nothing by Felice Stevens was a lovely written story of wayward souls who found each other creating a better life.

Rico grew up privileged, with expectations that pushed him to be he best even if the best wasn’t the path laid out for him.

Adam was blessed and privileged in ways beyond Rico’s understanding- loving parents who accepted him for who he was.

Ms. Stevens gave substance and depth to two men longing for love and acceptance. Their personalities radiated through the story and captivated not only each other’s heart but mine.

The secondary characters were family and wove themselves in the spirit of camaraderie. 
Adam and Rico were sexy and sensual  in their care for each other. Once Rico pushed aside his own inadequacies, the tale flowed, leading to an HEA.

Nicely done Ms. Stevens

Riley and Jack came alive through the melodic narration by Sean Crisden of RJ Scott’s book, Texas Family. Our hunky couple decided to expand their family through surrogacy, increasing by not just one, but two beautiful babies. Additionally, Riley and Jack made plans to adopt a special needs child, Max. The Campbell-Hayes family instantly goes from three to six in the blink of an eye.

Ms. Crisden captured the essence of the men with his sensual rendition and transported me to the Campbell-Hayes ranch in Texas.
The story overall flowed and brought a smile to my face.

A sweet tale of love and family.

S.E.X. Review~ Joker by JM Dabney



Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Length: 38,000 words approx.

Cover Design: Winterheart Design

Executioners Series

Ghost (Book #1) - Amazon US | Amazon UK 

Blurb

Joker, what a misnomer, but Jackson Webb’s friends were idiots. He’d joined Executioners almost three years earlier after the lead singer King caught him playing his guitar behind his garage. It broke up the monotony of his life, but once he got bored, he’d move on to another distraction. He wasn’t nice. He sure as hell wasn’t friendly. He was what he was, his friends handled his attitude and standoffish nature just fine. At thirty-eight he was pretty sure he was too stuck in his ways to change shit now.

Demetri “Dem” Urban was settling into a new life in the middle of nowhere. Okay, he was hiding from everyone in a kitchen as far removed from his five-star kitchen back in New York as he could get. Gideon invited him to stay with him and his wife for a while just until he could get everything back on track. He didn’t see it happening, but he had to admit the scenery wasn’t bad even if the man had the personality of a rabid, man-eating bear. Dem did like a challenge and that fit Joker Webb perfectly.

Author's Note: This story contains scenes of a violent nature, mentions of rape and torture (All off page from characters pasts) and severe abuse. If you, as a reader, find this objectionable or triggering in any way, you can skip this story without losing the transition to the next book.

Just when I thought a JM Dabney book could not get any better, the author made a liar out of me and wrote another sure-fire winner with Joker, Executioners 2.

Jackson, aka Joker was a complex, introverted yet out-spoken character with a shy streak that endeared him to my heart.

Physically abused as a child, Joker became the defender of the weak and the champion of his “family”. Enter Demetri, lovely man with a purpose in life- get Joker’s attention and capture the man’s heart.

The persuasive banter between Dem and Joker was appealing and sensitive as each man found his way through the first stirrings of a budding relationship. Scarred and scared, Joker shied from intimacy, while Dem’s bold nature was a force to reckon with.

Ms. Dabney found common ground in her writing of the two men and their struggle to fit in to the world they created. Loving, captivating, and persuasive, the nuances from the character development left a smile on my face and my heart two times bigger. I wanted to wrap each man in my arms and keep them safe from the world. Thank you, Ms. Dabney, for doing just that.
