review: Nobody’s Home by Dev Bentham

Twenty years ago. Nick and his mother left Lacland, Wisconsin and his abusive, mentally ill father. He now lives in New York City preparing for his next art show. He is hoping it will be just as successful as his first one. Then he gets a phone call telling him his father has died by his own hand and he needs to come and settle the estate. He flies to Lacland to find a crumbling, dirty house and one very fat bulldog named Lady.

Jonas is not really happy with his job as a research veterinarian but he does enjoy volunteering at his partner’s canine behavior studies lab. That is, he did, until he found out about his partner’s extracurricular activities. He decides taking the advertised job in Lacland for a vet to be just what he needs to heal.

Both in pain, the two meet and their contact is electric. But Nick is only planning on staying until he settles his father’s affairs and Jonas is still suffering from his ex’s actions. Avoidance seems to be the best bet but sometimes that is easier said than done in this small town when their paths constantly cross.

Nobody’s Home is a very powerful novel about the price of mental illness for Nick and the price of infidelity for Jonas. Both men had a lot to deal with and after some misunderstandings realize they do have something valuable together. They just have to decide what to do with it.

Dev Bentham is a talented writer who accurately portrays how devastating mental illness can be and the lasting effects it can have. At the same time, the same thing is done for infidelity. The later scenes between Jonas and his ex-lover are priceless and give Jonas some needed closure. Every second of this book is amazing as you enjoy watching these two men come together and heal. Pick it up and enjoy!

Review: Jaguar Mate by SA Welsh

Trying to survive until he can claim his inheritance, Jay lives with memories of his mother’s death and with the continued abuse of his stepfather. He almost loses it when he is attacked by a  childhood bully, only to have that bully turn into a bear, a bear very much like the one that killed his mother. Saved by three black jaguars, the last thing Jay wanted to know was that the town was not quite what it appeared and his best friend Kyle is so much more. Kyle, it seems, is not only a shifter but also he claims to be Jay’s mate.

Bullying is never easy too address, especially when the victim hides what is going on. Jay felt like he only had himself to rely on and suddenly Kyle is back and Jay is not so sure what he wants to do. This book had been published before and it is just as good the second time around. Pick it up if you missed the first release and immerse yourself in some excitement, danger and romance.

Review: Tied (Tangled series) by Emma Chase

The journey of the relationship between Drew and Kate becoming a long-lasting one has been filled with many highs and lows, and I am very grateful for being able to hear about so many of their experiences from personal viewpoints. This couple has gone through some tough times, but they have triumphed over any troubles and are finally at the point where marriage feels like the right next step. The fourth book in the Tangled series is once again cheekily told from Drew’s perspective, where comments about sex and just about anything else are candidly expressed with no thoughts held back. Emma Chase interweaves hilarious situations and passionate encounters in TIED to create an outstanding lusty romance.

Though Drew Evans had fully believed his future would not be with just one woman, the day he met Katherine Brooks was the moment his mind started to change. They had to overcome numerous conflicts that would have permanently torn apart many couples and even had a son together. Fortunately, their love for one another was strong enough to prevail over any of their problems and resulted in lots of satisfying sex after making up. Now the occasion which will legally join them as husband and wife is almost here, but first two important parties must be held before this momentous event.

Drew is letting his friends make all the arrangements for his bachelor party in Las Vegas, while Kate and her close friends will also be coming along to celebrate in their own separate way. Both of them expect to have a great time, but she cannot help but wonder if he will do something that may damage their relationship as he has done in the past. While Drew has emotionally matured since meeting Kate, getting a bunch of men together where booze and strippers are present can sometimes turn disastrous despite good intentions. All seems to go well at first, but crucial decisions could change the future of this couple.

Once the smiles and chuckles start, they never stop until the last word is read. Emma Chase masterfully makes each scene delightfully entertaining with colorful visuals and notable dialogue without equal. When guys are talking amongst themselves, the comments are regularly crude and often unique. The descriptions of all scenes let the reader perfectly envision every detail, and frequently cause loud bursts of laughter. It was very difficult for me to actually read a few paragraphs, because the images brought to mind led to watery eyes from all the giggling.

When it comes to creating original characters, Emma Chase has a gift. Personalities are matchless, while any conversations are constantly enjoyable. All of my favorite characters are back in the last book of the series, and though I never knew what would be said, it was guaranteed I would be riveted to every clever word. There are several instances where Drew and Kate are more serious, especially when they refer to their love for one another or their son, but these moments are equally gratifying. The sex between them is just as hot as ever, and references to what happens after a child becomes part of a relationship is particularly fun. The closeness they share is often conveyed with intense sensuality, yet total devotion is also clearly obvious any time they are intimate. Emma Chase is an author whose work will always be highly anticipated, as she never disappoints. TIED is an absolutely unforgettable erotic romance that continuously triggers uncontrollable laughter.

Review: Golden Man by Claire Thompson

Johnny continues his journey as a sub for popular and in demand Dom, Eric Méndez. In spite of the rejection and loss of his family, Johnny wants more from Eric. He wants to continue with his self-discovery. He is willing to commit everything to Eric.

Eric, as a much sought after Dom, can have any sub he wants, but for some reason, he wants to continue only with Johnny as he teaches him to submit and learn from Eric what it means to be dominated. Johnny has a few things he can teach Eric, something Eric thought he would never have in his life – love.

Golden Man was an incredibly romantic story of two men trying to bring their relationship to the next level. Johnny was dealing with family issues while Eric surprisingly had to deal with issues relating to falling in love. It was fun watching them work it out by taking two steps forward and one back. They key to their success was truly listening and hearing what the other said. Hearing and listening are not always the same thing a Eric and Johnny discover. They each had their own strengths and weaknesses, making the story realistic and memorable.

If you love a story with BDSM that is also filled with love and romance than Golden Man by Claire Thompson is perfect for you. She knows how to weave a tale that will touch you and never leave you. You can read this as a stand alone or you can enjoy reading about their first meeting in Golden Boy.
