Music In Motion: Book One
Malakei Oakley, aka rapper M. Prophet, is at the top of his game—but deep in the closet. Handsome, wealthy, and successful as the head of 315East Entertainment, Malakei should be on cloud nine. Despite his awards and a Midas touch that has every musician clamoring to work with him, something is missing.
Seth “Reaper” Davies is ready for stardom. His band High Stakes plays to small, packed houses all over Birmingham and London but has yet to get their big break. But Seth isn’t giving up on his dream—no matter what it takes.
A viral video prompts a message from a person he doesn’t expect—the talented M. Prophet. Their musical styles are worlds apart, and Seth has no desire to change his style to sell records. But his curiosity—and his attraction to Malakei—wins out.
Malakei can’t get Seth out of his mind. He also can’t come out without ruining his reputation. No matter how much he wants the sexy singer, his only option is to push Seth away. But he’s about to find out Seth isn’t one to give up on what he wants—and he might be just what Malakei needs.


Malakei Oakley, aka rapper M. Prophet, is at the top of the music world. Successful rapper and producer, Malakei is young, beautiful, talented and very rich. He seems to have everything in his life except love. Malakei is gay and deep, deep in the closet. He’s too scared to come out, too scared to lose everything he’s built.

Seth “Reaper” Davis, is the lead singer of his band, High Stakes. They start to make a name around their town Birmingham and London, but they still need the little push to be known by the world.
When Malakei discovers them on YouTube, he knows things will never be the same for him. Seth will come into his life like a tsunami and will change everything for him.
Push by BL Morticia is book one in the Music in Motion series. It’s also the first book that I’ve read from the author.

I adored this book. I completely melted for the characters and the story.
Malakei is rich, talented, smart and beautiful, but he’s lonely and deep in the closet. Seth is out and proud, and he’s also stubborn, loud, and speaks his mind without thinking. They are polar opposites, from their origins to their music, everything seems to be a total contradiction between them, but it works for them, their differences don’t push them apart, on contrary, that’s what puts them together.
I completely adored them, Seth is definitely my fav because he’s funny, loud and crazy, totally my type. I adored how they were together, how Seth pushes Malakei onto the right path. I also adored that they were a mixed-race couple, I love a book that shows love in all its forms, no matter gender, race or religion.

The writing was good, fluid, and dynamic. The story takes place in front of us easily, and we follow it without difficulty. They were some twists in the book, but nothing crazy, and it serves the plot and the story right. The story focuses on Malakei and Seth, their meeting, their almost insta-love moment and how they became THE couple that the world wants to be.

I happily recommend this book. If you’re in the mood for a good love story, with 2 adorable MCs, this book will do the job, nothing crazy, nothing too heavy just love and music.
I will definitely follow this series and the author.

5 OptimuMM for the Reaper and his Prophet!
