BLURB:

As soon as he graduated high school, Paul Thompson fled the tiny, heavily Ukrainian town of Liddon, Saskatchewan, for bigger and better things. Now in his late thirties, Paul owns a struggling art gallery in Toronto. His grandmother’s one-hundredth birthday is approaching, and Paul will return to place where he grew up for the first time since he left.
The town—and the province—don’t match Paul’s memories. Have they changed? Or has he? He reconnects with Dylan Shevchenko, an old friend who now teaches phys. ed. in Regina. When Paul learns his grandmother had an Aboriginal son he never knew about, he wonders what else he missed while he was away. Did he make the right choice all those years ago? He receives the rare opportunity to start over when he discovers a gallery for sale in Regina. He’s faced with a choice between his youthful dreams in the big city and making a life with Dylan in a place that somehow finally feels like home.
World of Love:Stories of romance that span every corner of the globe. (less).


This was an adorable and quick read and is part of the World of Love series. This was the first I have read of the series, and I followed just fine. So it can be read as a standalone.

I found this author easy to read and the editing was good. The author did capture my heart with the two MC’s and their love affair that started over twenty years ago. The supporting characters were good, but Paul’s grandma was my favorite. She made me laugh quite often.

Paul left his hometown twenty years ago after graduating night and the kiss that shocked him. He built a life in the big city and opened a gallery with Cleo. He must return to his small hometown for his grandmother’s 100th birthday. Paul really has lost touch with anything going on in his family and home from his youth.

Dylan has never left and has built his life in his small town. He hasn’t seen Paul since he kissed him on graduating night and ran off. Dylan was not the nicest of people in his youth but has come to terms that he’s gay.

Paul and Dylan spend time together and have passion between them all while attending the celebration. They, of course, have situations come up, in which separates them again.

You ask what situations? You ask why they go separate ways if there was a strong g passion there? Can they come together again? Well, I have one response to those questions. Read the book. You will enjoy it. Happy reading.

BLURB:

Experiencing Para-Hormonal Activity? Then Ethan & Justin Hard will be all over your case!
Case 2.
Mysteria is engulfed by power-outages and tumultuous weather. Ethan and Justin Hard must figure out what the cause is before the whole town is destroyed.
But with the Hard boys’ newly super-charged anatomies, they may very well be the culprits!


Warning: This book and Alien Abduction are HOT, HILARIOUS and ADDICTING. This author has managed to have me laughing so hard, I may have cracked a rib or two. And at the same time, had me needing to change my panties and have some alone time. I want to become part of the Hard Boys gang. I will just sit back and watch all the hot action and play with myself, I promise. LOL

Justin and Ethan are just absolutely perfect for each other. I really enjoy their love for each other and everyone one else they decide to bring in. But at the end of the day, they belong to one another. I loved learning about their childhoods and what it was like growing up in Ravencrest. I love all the characters, and Sarah and Frankie complete the Scooby Doo scenario perfectly.

My favorite line in the whole book, “Did you burn your snitzel?” Hilarious. I once again learned new terms with this author. You have changing body parts in this story. Can I have this ability? I could have so much fun with this.

I love the underlying story also. Just like in Alien Abduction, this story is about the love of a father willing to do what it takes to save his son. I loved how Ian kept true to Frankenstein but in a hell of a sexy as fuck way. Ian holds nothing back, and he is brilliant. I have truly enjoyed this author and can’t wait for more from him.

So. if you can’t handle super hot, extremely hilarious and lots of sex, do not buy this book. BUT, if you are looking for this and much more, run out and get your copy before they run out.

Review: “Breaking Roadblocks” by Brina Brady

TITLE: Breaking Roadblocks
AUTHOR: Brina Brady
SERIES: Bend Over Series
PUBLISHER: Self-published
COVER ARTIST: Kellie Dennis
GENRE: BDSM
E-BOOK: Yes
PAPERBACK: No
LENGTH: 275 pages
RELEASE DATE: November 10, 2017
PRICE: $3.99 -e-book

BLURB:

With their marriage on hold, Shane begins to stumble. All he wants is to be Julien’s husband but he just can’t seem to make the right choices when it comes to proving to Julien that he is his top priority.
To make matters harder, Shane is being forced to see the hatred in the world. Being in an interracial BDSM relationship isn’t welcomed by all. Most surprisingly from Shane’s so called friends and others from their small BDSM community.
Julien and Shane work together breaking through roadblocks to stay together as a black and white BDSM couple. No matter how hard Shane tries, he gets in his own way, with a little help from a couple of people actively working against them as a couple.
The couple fights against their enemies to stay together. When things get rough, they fight for their love.
This story is steamy hot, but it isn’t just a story of BDSM. It is a story of love and hate with a well-deserved HEA end to the series.


This is the fourth and final book of the series and is not a stand-alone. I strongly suggest reading the first three and in order. Bend Over, Don’t Throw Me Away and Spanked in the Woodshed.

I absolutely love this series and have been waiting for this book. I’m sad that it is coming to an end, but I do look forward to upcoming books from this author. Brina has a way of bringing these mento life, and you can’t help but fall in love with them. Add to that the BDSM aspect and the loveconnection, you have a winner in my eyes.

Shane is the sub that always seems to get in trouble with his Dom and can’t seem to follow directions very well. Shane loves his Dom so very much and wants nothing more than to please
him. But Shane has trouble trusting his Dom and lets other people persuade him into thinking what they have together is not real. Shane wants to marry Julien as planned but the ex-wife
convinces Shane that will not happen.

Julien loves his Sub with all his heart and is trying to make it where they can get married but is lying to Shane. When Shane finds out about the lie, he goes off on a tangent and leaves. Julien knows his Sub well and goes off to find him and make things right.

Then there’s Keme, Shane’s best friend and he has asked Shane to keep a secret from Julien. As much as Shane has promised to be honest, he agrees to keep this secret for his best friend. There
are many different characters that I have loved and hated throughout this series, and I don’t want to give spoilers.

There are people out to stop this relationship from all over. Will these people succeed in their conquest to end this relationship? Will the fact that they are an interracial relationship play a part in their success as a Dom/Sub? Will they make it to the alter? Will Keme and Shane ever be friends again? These are just a few of the questions I had going on in my head as I read this.

If you love a BDSM Contemporary story, then go get this series because you will not be disappointed.

Review: “Blood Drop” by Jacob Z. Flores

TITLE: Blood Drop
AUTHOR: Jacob Z. Flores
SERIES: The Warlock Brothers of Havenbridge
PUBLISHER: Dreamspinner Press
COVER ARTIST: Paul Richmond
GENRE: Urban Fantasy; Shapeshifters
E-BOOK: Yes
PAPERBACK: No
LENGTH: 230 pages
RELEASE DATE: November 6, 2017
PRICE: $6.99 -e-book / $14.99 -paperback

BLURB:

A single drop of blood might hold the key to the fate of the magical world, and Aiden Teine must choose between his bond of love and embracing the power to defeat his enemies.
Aiden’s adjustment to being the first vampyre fae hasn’t been easy, but his ties to warlock Thad Blackmoor prevent him from becoming a monster. With Thad, Aiden has a new family, a new purpose, and a new reason to live—though he’s technically undead. There’s one problem: Aiden’s control over his vampyre is weakening. He must learn what’s triggering his violent reactions before he surrenders to the creature within. To complicate matters, Aiden discovers his transformation might not be complete, and he fears what he will become.

Aiden’s search for answers thrusts him into a frightening world filled with deception, new dangers, and apocalyptic visions. The part destiny intends Aiden to play could alter his relationship with Thad forever. If Aiden, Thad, and the entire magical community are to survive Icarian’s latest scheme, Aiden must interpret the meaning of the prophetic blood drop before it falls and ushers in the destruction of all creation—and the warlock he loves.


This is the fifth book of the series and the first time I have read this author. Even though I have not read the first four, which I strongly suggest you do, it was a very good fantasy book. I felt lost and had to keep going through the beginning of the book because there is a list and descriptions of all the characters. I did find the list helpful. I am excited to read the series from the beginning and to see this world or worlds from the beginning.

Aiden is a fire fae and former prince of his world. Then Aiden got turned into the first vampire fae and was cast out of his world. Aiden struggles with his new vampire being and is trying not to give into the desires of that first drink.

Thad is Aiden’s boyfriend and true love. Thad is an ice warlock and does a really awesome job keeping Aiden at bay with his thirst. But will it be enough? Thad has to help everyone realize they can’t be discovered by the human race or they will all be hunted.

There are so many characters that make this book enjoyable yet confusing because I have not read the other books. Will there be a happy ending for Aiden and Thad? Will Aiden give in to his thirst and alter the magical community? How will his love for his warlock affect his decisions? These are the answers I enjoyed reading, and I hope you do too.

BLURB:

Saying goodbye is too much for one heart to take.

As Eli comes to terms with his true identity, he, Isaiah and Malachi must flee from France as Morbius closes the net around them. Yet, saying goodbye to his home, and the love that he must leave there forever, proves to be more difficult than Eli could ever imagine.

Now Eli has to face the tumultuous events that transpired in Victorian England, and Malachi must face a return trip to the place of his birth and his death. London is waiting for them, and as they grieve for the loss that fills their broken hearts, each has a story to face and a dilemma to confront that could change their lives forever.

As London falls to Hitler’s deadly bombs, each must be prepared to say their goodbyes, because the end game has begun.


WARNING: If you have not read the first 3 books, DO NOT read this one until you have. This series cannot be read as standalones, and you will be at a total loss if you try. Now, moving forward or should I say let’s see what the past has for us.

This fourth installment has left me an utter mess. This author has ripped my heart from my chest and dispersed it all over different parts of the world. I have never been on a journey like this. I literally could not put this book down. Let me tell you, I have paid good money for some really good roller coasters, and none of them compare to the roller coaster Sean has taken me on. It’s intense, makes me laugh and has me balling my eyes out. I can’t seem to get a grip on my emotions in this series, but this 4th installment takes the cake.

SPOILER ALERT if you have not read the first 3 books – DO NOT proceed

My poor Eli just can’t catch a break. My heart went out to him when he held Gideon as he died in his arms after learning what he really is. He loved Gideon for so long, to have to watch him go up in ash was just shattering. Then, Ethan is taken by evil itself, and his situation is looking dim. And now, he must go find the dagger before it gets into the wrong hands. My, my Eli, Sean has given you a piece of my heart and won’t give it back. Now that you’ve got the book, go learn about why everything happened the way it did.

Then there’s Malachi, my dear sweet Malachi. You are the most amazing ghost I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. And even learning the truth, you are there for Eli, and he is really going to need you to get through this book. I’m happy that you and Isaiah are there with him. Sean has given you a piece of my heart when Eli takes you home. OMG I balled like a baby. I mean, ugliest of ugly cries.

There are so many characters I could talk about, but then this review would be as long as the book. There’s Danyiel, the beautiful angel that has crushed me. There’s the Queen and her nephew, the Prince that are Vampires too. There is Churchill. There is Melek and the Black Messiah. There is just so much in the past and in the present that are colliding and causing so much havoc.

Answers are coming out of the woodwork, and everything I thought I knew is all being questioned. Things I’ve thought I understood about the beginning are not as they are. Lives are lost, love is lost, but souls are repaired. Goodbyes are really hard, and I’m not ready to say them. Sean left another piece of my heart at the cemetery, and that’s all I can say about that. You need to go through this journey as I have and don’t forget your tissues.
