Secrets in My Scowl



Author A.E. Via
Title: The Secrets in My Scowl
M/M GAY CONTEMPORARY / STANDALONE
Edited by: Tina Adamski
Cover Artist – Jay Aheer
PAGE COUNT – 312
Release Date: October 28, 2016

Sparks ignite and tempers flare when a sexy, optimistic wedding planner moves his business in across the hall from a jilted, divorce lawyer’s practice.

“Look smart ass. This is the last time I’m going to remind you about breaking sections of the lease. If there’s a next time, I won’t stop until you and your frilly, white wedding shit is thrown out of here. Do you got it?!”
Wylde looked in Jacob’s pained eyes and answered in his deep voice. “Yeah, counselor. I got it.”

From high school, up until he became a successful attorney Jacob Snowden was convinced that love had it out for him. “Everyone left,” were the words he lived by. His mother, his high school sweetheart, his father, and his fiancĂ©, all left Jacob just when he felt it was safe to let down his guard. Not any longer. Jacob was a determined man, set at keeping people at a distance. If his six foot one, military-made body didn’t scare people off, his permanent scowl surely did. At almost forty, Jacob’s social life was non-existent, but he told himself his work fulfilled him. He helped people get out of their loveless marriages. Jacob Snowden was one of the best divorce lawyers on the east coast and was damn proud of it. So, imagine his disdain when a wedding planner moves into the suite directly adjacent to his… an insanely masculine, male wedding planner.

Wylde Sterling had made quite a name for himself in his hometown of Roanoke, Virginia, working for a wedding planner that catered to the elite. He was known for his charm and impeccable taste. Yep, he was incredible at giving couples the wedding of their dreams. But he wanted nothing more than to plan his own. After striking out in love more times than he cared to admit, Wylde decided to start his own business in a new city, hoping Richmond would give him a fresh start. Things started out wonderfully – until he started to piss off the angry divorce attorney next door.

Wylde could see past Jacob’s mean scowl, knowing there was a reason for it. It was the man’s defense mechanism, his means of keeping people away. Everything in Wylde told him to stay away, but he believed Jacob just needed to meet a man who had been hurt as badly as he had.

This story ends in an HEA and does not end on a cliffhanger.

The m/m genre is a favorite of mine but also something I can be very picky about. So when I find a good author for the genre I practically jump for joy. And trust me when I say A.E Via is an author worth jumping for! I loved the books I've read from her in the past, and I loved this new one. 

Jacob and Wylde had some amazing chemistry and I loved seeing them trying to fight it. Jacob was the asshole of the book, but also the one that I related to the most. His past was a little heartbreaking and I felt for him throughout the whole story. I wanted him to finally get his HEA and live life to the fullest, so when Wylde entered the picture and showed him that the way he was living wasn't the best option for getting over you're past, I loved him too. They were just perfect together and had a great connection. 

This is a definite recommend from me! I loved the relationship that these characters had and I really enjoyed how the author put them together. I think this would also be a great book for any reader new to the m/m genre.

Submission Is Not Enough




Submission is Not Enough
Masters and Mercenaries Book 12
By Lexi Blake
Coming October 25, 2016

A fallen hero reborn

Theo Taggart lost everything the night he died. His family, his beautiful Erin, and worst of all, he lost himself. A twisted doctor brought him back from the brink of death, but reprogrammed his identity to serve her will. Rescued by his brothers, he must fight to reclaim the man he was and the life, and love, that were stolen from him.

A love worth fighting for

Erin Argent thought she'd lost Theo forever. When he walked back into her life, it was nothing short of a miracle. Months of torture and conditioning at the hands of Dr. Hope McDonald have done damage to Theo that may never be mended. He has no memory of her or the life they shared. Breaking through to him, and helping him rediscover all he lost, will be the toughest mission she's ever faced. Luckily for Theo, Erin loves a good fight.

Their reunion under siege

Unfortunately, Hope is far from done with Theo Taggart. Obsessed with her prize experiment, she will do anything to get him back. If the only way to finally break him of his past life is to kill Erin and his son, then she's only too happy to oblige…

Excerpt

Theo took the stairs as quickly as he could. He knew where he was going, but he wasn’t going to think about it. For the first time since he’d gotten home, he didn’t care about his past or figuring out who he’d been. He wanted. He wanted something right now and that felt good.

She’d been right. There wasn’t a place for guilt here.

He strode up the stairs, her weight comforting in his arms. Yeah, he wasn’t going to think about that either. He was going to enjoy it, not wonder why his body remembered her when his mind would not.

“Hey, is everything okay?”

Damn it. Case was standing at the top of the stairs, obviously having come out of the privacy rooms. His wife was at his side, her face flushed. Mia had sex hair. Good for them. Red was about to have sex hair, too. Lots of filthy sex hair. “Everything’s great. Night.”

Case put a hand on his shoulder. “Whoa. I thought you were going to take this slow, brother.”

“If you don’t get your hand off him right this second, Taggart, I am going to ensure that you never have children,” Red said, her eyes narrowing on his brother. “You won’t be able to cock block anyone because you won’t have a damn cock. Am I clear?”

Case’s hands came up immediately as though he knew that tone and was not going there. “Trying to help.”

“Three is clean and has plenty of condoms. We’re taking a monitor turn up here. I checked all the rooms.” Mia grinned at him. She actually was helpful. “Have fun and we’ll see you at home.”

He didn’t bother to look back. Case could give him a lecture later. He wasn’t waiting anymore. He’d waited forever. Even when he couldn’t remember her face, he’d known she was there. He’d felt her, or rather he’d felt her absence.

Could he truly be with a woman whose name he couldn’t think without hurting her?

It didn’t matter. He wasn’t making those decisions tonight. He was enjoying her. His sub. He was bringing her pleasure and he probably should do a good job of it because his sub was fucking mean.

And fragile. He’d seen the moment she’d thought he was rejecting her. He’d watch her skin flush and her body start to turn in on itself. She was such a mix of strength and need. It was intoxicating. He wanted so badly to be the man who gave her what she needed.

Affection. Pleasure. Comfort.

Love—he wasn’t thinking that word tonight. Nope. Pleasure was way better.

He kicked out lightly at the partially open door number three. It looked like Mia had done her job. The room was perfectly clean, the lighting soft and romantic. The best thing about this room though was the complete lack of any of his friends or family being here.

It was him and her, and that was exactly what he wanted. No Ian. No Li. No Kai asking them hundreds of questions. Him and her and the night.

He tossed her on the bed and stood back, looking down at her. “Tell me why you thought I was rejecting you.”

The instant she hit the bed, she was up on her knees. So graceful. So deadly. What the hell was this woman like out in the field? She moved like a predator, but the look on her face was pure sarcasm. “Uhm, your words. That’s what sealed it for me. ‘I don’t want to do this’ is generally considered a rejection.”

Somehow she managed to put an unsaid “dumbass” on the end of her sentences. Not all of them. She’d been perfectly sweet most of the night, but she could turn it on when she wanted to. “I didn’t mean that. When I said the words, I watched you change. Why? You’re good at slapping people down. I wouldn’t have said that until today.”

“Because I’ve been careful around you,” she admitted.

“Why? You think I’m delicate?”

Her lips curled up. “I don’t think you’re delicate. I think I’m a lot to take, but I also am starting to believe I was wrong. You like me rough.”

“I like you a lot.” More than he could ever tell her.

excerpt

Excerpt: Copyright © 2016 by Nashoda Rose

“Maitagarri, what was that?” I chuckled, shaking my head. She’d tried to distract me by brushing her hand over my cock just before she crouched and swept her leg out to land me on my ass.

She ended up flat on her back with me straddling her pelvis, her wrists locked above her head.

“It’s not fair. I’ve never won a fight. So, I’m using what I have available to me.”

Delara’s skin glistened with sweat and her chest rose and fell rapidly as she panted. We practiced every morning whenever I stayed with her at the Talde house which, unfortunately, wasn’t as often as I liked. But Delara knew right from the beginning what our relationship would be like. Especially after spending a year apart.

“You want to win, baby then you need to be better.” I smirked. “There’s no point in me letting you win.”

She moaned, closing her eyes. “There is. I’d be happier.”

Una

To many, I am little more than a myth. The Kiss of Death, a hired killer, revered by the some of the greatest criminal organisations in the world. Trained by the bratva themselves, without conscience, without mercy, the perfect soldier. I’ll kill anyone… for a price. Death doesn’t discriminate, she sells to the highest bidder, but even I have a weakness.

Nero

I want one thing—power. But power is merely a game of strategy. The pieces are on the chess board. Death is my queen, and also my pawn. She’ll paint this city red in exchange for the one thing she wants. Now all I have to do is watch it all play out. She’s nothing more than a weapon, and yet, I find myself wanting to dance with death, to possess her. And I always get what I want.

A game of power. A risk that could cost her everything. An obsession that would see the world burn at their feet. A bloodied king. A broken queen. Kill me or kiss me?

4.5 Stars that I rounded up to 5, that is how you know I thought a book was extra special. I keep my five star ratings limited so that only the extra special books get that honor. Well Kill Me definitely deserved the 5! Not only that, the prologue book even got 5 Stars too. And I don't think I've ever rated a novella higher than 4 before. This series and these characters are just that amazing. 

Una is the Kiss of Death, the assassin no one wants to cross and the one that almost every crime family has ties with. But Nero wants her all to himself and to use her as only he see's fit. She comes with a price though, one Nero has no problem with but one Una knows she should walk away from...yet she can't.

I really just can't get over how dark and raw this book was. From the very beginning I was sucked into this world of death and destruction, and I loved every second of it. Nero and Una were crazy characters, yet I loved them and how they never held back. Both of them were more than a little unhinged and had a sinister air around their characters, but I found it hot. 

Both Nero and Una killed without a blink of an eye, no regrets and no feelings. Their turbulent relationship had me on the edge of my seat, and I was dying to see how these two killers would come together. I just couldn't get enough of their insanity and call me crazy, but their gritty and hateful fight-sex was a huge turn on! Foreplay for them was death and their sexual tension just about made my Kindle start to steam. I loved how their want for one another was so strong and went against both of their rules, yet they couldn't stop from waning each other. Two merciless killers, a King and a Queen, their worlds shouldn't cross, but when they did the chemistry exploded.

Kill Me ends on a cliffhanger and has me still going completely bonkers. I need more of this murderous couple as soon as possible! I should be afraid of them, but nope all I want is more of Nero and Una and I absolutely need to see how their story is going to play out.

Don’t be fooled.

Don’t make excuses for me.

I am not a good man.

I’ve seen things no one should, done things no one should talk about. Honor and conscience have no place in my life. But I’ve fought and I’ve survived. I’ve had to.

The first time I saw her dancing on that seedy stage in that second rate club, I felt my heart pulse for the first time. Keelyn Foster was too young, too vibrant for this place, and I knew in an instant that I would make her mine. But first I had to climb my way to the top. I had to have something more to offer her.

I’m here now, money is no object and I have no equal. Except for her. She’s disappeared. But don’t worry, I will find her and claim her. She will be mine.

Like I said, don’t be fooled. I am not the devil in disguise… I’m the one standing front and center.

              Maybe if I hadn’t spent the last six months slinging pancakes and greasy hash to hungover hipsters and avoiding the too-curious eyes of the cops who like to hit up the diner for early-morning breakfast, I would have noticed the ominous shift in the air. 

              Before I came to Denver six months ago, my senses had been honed to pick up on the slightest threat. Before, anything that might be dangerous, that might put me in peril, had made my skin tingle, made everything inside of me vibrate with awareness. Now I had settled into a simple, dreary rhythm. Every day was the same as the one before it and there was no outside threat constantly hounding me, hunting me, haunting me. I let my guard down. I had gone soft, and as a result the biggest danger of them all managed to slip into my new normal without giving any kind of hint he was there. 

              My nonslip shoe—that were probably the ugliest things ever made but absolutely necessary considering the greasy food the tiny kitchen pumped out—squeaked on the laminate floor as I made my way over to the lone patron who had taken the last available seat in my section. The massive plastic menu completely covered his face, but the Rolex on his wrist and the perfect cut of his suit jacket let me know he wasn’t my typical kind of customer. There wasn’t a flannel shirt or police blues in sight, and as I got closer, a whiff of something exotic and familiar engulfed my senses and stopped me in my tracks. Of all the things I had left behind, he was the one I had tried hardest to forget. 

              The tingling across my skin spread. My tummy tightened. Blood rushed loudly between my ears. My shaking fingers curled around the pen in my hand like a weapon. Before I could pull it together and walk away, the menu lowered and I was pinned to the spot, immobilized by eyes the color of spice rum. 

              They were wicked eyes. Eyes that saw far too much and gave nothing away. Eyes I daydreamed about. Eyes that caused me to wake up in a cold sweat. Eyes that turned me inside out and shook me up as they made a slow perusal from the top of my head to the tips of my god-awful shoes, returning to my face and staying there as I struggled to keep my shit together. 

              He slowly put the menu down on the cracked tabletop and leaned back in the booth. He was strikingly out of place here and I absolutely hated how that sexy twist of his mouth, a mouth that I dreamed about almost every night, made my traitorous heart flutter and my pulse kick. 

              I was also strikingly out of place here, but I’d learned to fake it. He, obviously, never bothered to fake anything. He wasn’t a man with virtuous intentions and he never pretended to be. 

              Gone were the mile-high stilettos that I always wore. In their place I now donned work shoes that prevented me from falling on my ass as I ran food and dirty dishes to and from the kitchen. I was hiding in plain sight, knowing that the last place on earth anyone who might come looking for me would check out would be this greasy spoon. This was the opposite of me and the life I had always lived, so even though I could afford better, craved more, this was where I needed to be…until he showed up.

Wow. Just wow. That is the only thing that came to my mind when I finished this book. The journey these authors took us on to get to the ending was mind-blowing and worth every second of my time. It's not the Royals that will ruin you, it's the authors that created them! If you haven't started this series yet then you are insane and missing out on something spectacular. 

From the very first book I have been fully invested in Ella's life and then the life of the Royals. Their world is crazy and just when I thought it couldn't get any crazier, it did! You may think that the story won't go as deep as it does, and I think many people will be shocked and pleasantly surprised when they realize just how insane it gets. It takes a good author to write a story that will go as far as this one, so I guess it's a good thing that we have not one, but two, authors willing to go to those places that not many authors go. By insane I don't mean dark and gritty, I mean this story reached way beyond the normal YA limits and because of that it was shocking.

I can't even describe to you the raw emotions that I felt while enjoying this series, so really all I can say is to read it! Jump on the fangirl bandwagon and give these Royals a try because they are something special. I honestly have so much to say about this book, but I can't say any of it without ruining the plot. But what I can say is that this series will suck you in and make you fall in love with people you never thought you would even remotely like. I think one of the most shocking things about this series was my own emotions. Through three books I changed who I liked, who I suspected of things, and who I wanted all to myself. It's a true roller coaster ride, and one I want to experience all over again. 

Bottom line, I will recommend this book to every single person I know. When I first started with the Royals I honestly didn't think I would like them. But after three books I don't even want to be done with them! I need more Royals ASAP.


I was dying for this book so much after the crazy way the last book ended God I just hate cliffhanger so much an that was a huge cliffhanger so Ye I was dying for this an it didn't disappoint 

Again in this book Reed Ella and the Royal family r going through so much there family life is turned upside down an they don't really have many people at there side but Reed an Ella's relationship just keeps getting stronger there is a lot of testing in this book for them Reed is very different in this book we got to c other side to an he isnt as strong as we know him but it didn't take away how strong he is over all he just as to deal with a lot in this he needed Ella more than ever 

It's very hard to do this review with out spoiling the whole book an I m not doing that cause this is one of my favourite series this year an one of my all time favourites I just luv this family Ye there al over place an drama follows them everywhere but u just can't help luvin them an im dying to know more about Easton Gideon Seb and Sawyer they r so different an we do get more of there craziness in this an we already now a lil bit about the boys I m dying for more 

This book was really good I m gutted its al over I really couldn't put this book down once I started it the flow of the story was great an drama is crazy an it's a brilliant ending there is still so much going on with this family so I m really hoping that we get more of this family soon I m sorry I could say much about the book but liberally don't want to spoil it but I know that up will luv it xxx
