When All the World Sleeps by Lisa Henry & J.A. Rock is the first book I’ve read by this writing duo and I wasn’t disappointed. Gritty, dark, angsty as hell, the story of sleepwalker Daniel Whitlock and Joe ‘Bel’ Belman is a powerful one. In their small town, Daniel’s reputation as a murderer of the man who almost beat him to death always keeps him apart from everyone else. When Bel saves Daniel from a fire set in revenge, they find a tenuous connection. Bel is the only person who doesn’t look at Daniel like he’s worthless and when Daniel actually manages to sleep Bel finds he’s not what he appears.

There is explicit violence in this book, so it’s not for the faint of heart.

When All the World Sleeps is from Riptide Publishing.

Collide by Riley Hart is one of the tried and true tropes I love to read of friends to lovers. As kids when Noah and Cooper collided while playing football, they became the best of friends. After their friendship was torn apart when Noah’s family unexpectedly left town, Cooper was left behind wondering what had become of his best friend. Years later when Noah returns to their small town, they quite literally collide again. Watching Cooper realize he has feelings for his former best friend while Noah tries to push his down to preserve their friendship kept me reading through the night.

You can find Collide at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and the usual suspects.

I’m a huge fan of L.A. Witt but until I read Guarded, I hadn’t read a collab between Witt and Cat Grant. I wasn’t disappointed as this isn’t your usual BDSM story. Rock stars, addiction, BDSM oh my. Jordan Kane is a world famous rockstar with a need for kink who finds a kindred spirit in his bodyguard, sadist Jase Hewitt. This book is edgy, hot and if you’re a fan of schmexytimes with a good dose of kink this one might be for you. Check it out.

You can find Collide at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and the usual suspects.

That’s all for now folks. Happy reading!

Today’s Book Rec Rambles

Last week when I was sick I didn’t get much writing done. Instead I tried to cram ALL of the books in my brain at once.

In no particular order of the books I’d totally rec are:

Payoff and If It Drives by Aleksandr Voinov & L.A. Witt from the Market Garden series from Riptide Publishing:

cover40981-medium cover42346-medium

This series isn’t just about rentboys. It’s sexy and funny and heartbreaking at times. Sure, the main characters sometimes involve their professions as an integral part of the story but each story is its own recognizable story.

Payoff is the conclusion to the story arc following the couple, Tristan and Jared two employees of Market Garden and their evolving relationship when Tristan figures out he wants more. Enter Rolex, their sexy john and things are further complicated.

If It Drives is BDSM themed. Cal is wealthy divorcee James’ driver. But Cal isn’t just his driver, he wants to be everything for James. With the help of Nick, one of the former rentboys at Market Garden he tries to be everything James could possibly want. Shoulder to lean on, Dom and driver but the lines blur between the roles leaving Cal reeling.

You can find Payoff at http://riptidepublishing.com/titles/payoff  and If It Drives at http://www.riptidepublishing.com/titles/if-it-drives.

 

Misbehaving by Tiffany Reisz from Harlequin’s Cosmo Red-Hot Reads Line

Misbehaving cover

Good lord I love a witty and fast paced romantic comedy. In erotica where plots tend to only focus on the smut, which don’t get me wrong? I really enjoy a down and dirty smutpiece. But the ability to weave humor and a fast paced story with romance and still keep it sexy without the banter and dialogue weighing it down is an art form.

Sex blogger Bea has every woman’s dream job. Well, at least my dream job. Who wouldn’t want to get paid to blog about sex toys and sexuality? When she gets stuck having to write a book review during her sister’s wedding she needs a willing and ready volunteer. Who better to help her out then her one upon a time love interest that never really panned out, Ben.

If you’re a fan of Tiffany’s Original sinners you’ll love the joke at the end.

Misbehaving releases tomorrow but you can pre-order at Amazon here.

 

Bonds of Denial by Lydia Aicher from Carina Press

cover41129-medium

Bonds of Denial is Book 5 in Lydia Aicher’s Wicked Play series. I loved the first four books but audibly squeed when I found book 5, the first M/M title of the series on Netgalley. Rockford and Carter? Ermagod. I loved Carter. He just was all kinds of sexy and self assured. Rock? I wanted to smack upside the head then hug the shit outta him. Together they have to figure out how to make the relationship between rentboy on a contract Carter and Rock’s ingrained closeting work.

You can find Bonds of Denial here: http://ebooks.carinapress.com/1603B61E-8FF1-442D-B1D5-C575673D4643/10/134/en/ContentDetails.htm?ID=C3E00577-BB2A-44A9-AF5B-882B181CF01E

That’s all for now, folks. Keep on smutting.

 

Book Recs: Dirty Deeds by SE Jakes and Static by L.A. Witt @AuthorSEJakes @GallagherWitt

Dirty Deeds by SE Jakes

So if you’ve been reading my recs, you may have noticed my flailing over the other books from SE Jake’s Extreme Escapes Ltd universe. To put it bluntly, read all the others and you’ll understand Cillian and Mal’s world a helluva lot more. But let me just say, the hotness and angst in Dirty Deeds doesn’t disappoint.

You can find Dirty Deeds here at Riptide Publishing.

 

Static by L.A. Witt

cover41359-medium

Holy crap. There isn’t enough good things I can say about this book. It’ll make you think. I just wanted to hug Alex the whole time. Alex is a shifter, a person who can shift genders at will and her/his situation will break your heart. Between her/his parents and the surgery that leaves him/her in his male form it’s a question of taking away free will and choice from Alex that made me cry. Damon is her/his boyfriend and the journey that these two take together was written so beautifully I just couldn’t say enough.

You can find Static at Riptide Publishing.
