Release Day Blast ~ Favorite Toy by Louise Lyons ~ (Review, Excerpt + Giveaway)
Author Name: Louise Lyons
Book Name: Favorite Toy
Release Date: January 31, 2016


Determined to stay single, Dean Simpson and his best friend Ryan have been playing a game, where each man chooses a potential hook-up for the other, usually someone nothing like their usual type. But with Ryan now off the market, Dean agrees to one final round of the game and allows his friend to choose his toy for the evening.
Casper Mancuso is about as far from Dean’s type as he can get. Casper is pretty, flamboyant, and attention-seeking, but sexy with it. Dean decides one night can’t hurt, but when Casper makes it clear his aim is the same as Dean’s – to have one bit of fun and then move on – Dean finds himself surprisingly disappointed.
With both men keen to avoid a relationship at all costs, it seems there can be no chance for anything between them. And yet the pair are drawn to each other and despite some hurtful comments and a very public argument, they just can’t stay away from each other. Eventually Dean is forced to admit that the very antithesis of what he usually likes is exactly what he’s been waiting for.

Blog Tour: To Move Forward by Geoffrey Bauernfeind (Guest Post, Review, Excerpt + Giveaway)

Preorder link:


Twenty years go by quickly and there are moments when you think back and relive some of the good times you shared. Now and then there has been contact, but vague and brief.

Then, one day, you meet and those old feelings resurface. But there is also fear. Apprehension. Questions. He has friends. You have friends. Do you want to see this person? What could he possibly want? Is a reconciliation possible? Do you really want to rekindle that lost love? And if so, at what cost?

Patrick and Ben were more than friends before they went their separate ways. In the years that followed, Patrick stayed true to himself and Ben married. Patrick searched for happiness. Ben seemingly had it all. Now Patrick and Ben, currently divorced, meet at a fair, and suddenly Patrick is thrust into Ben’s life once again. He has no idea what he is getting himself into because, as much as Patrick desires Ben and vice versa, there are skeletons in both cupboards and both must make sacrifices in order to be together.


“I can’t see,” Darrin complained again.
“Here.” I squatted down and Darrin climbed onto my shoulders. I nearly lost my hat in the process. I held his legs tightly to my chest as he sat down and I got back to my feet.
“Yeah!” Darrin screamed wildly.
“Try not to move too much.” My plea landed on deaf ears. He was higher than everyone and having a great time, being able to see the stage. He clapped along and, unable to resist the exuberance, I joined him.
Halfway through the second song, I caught Ben watching, smiling. He finished squeezing his way back to us and yelled at me.
“The girls will meet us in a few minutes. I couldn’t be mad when we were late already.”
Ben called up to Darrin when the song ended. “Okay, time to get down and eat.”
“Daaddd,” Darrin complained. “I‟m not hungry now.”
“Yes, you are,” Ben replied while helping him off me. We walked away from the noise to the food stands.
“Can Patrick come to my birthday party? He can give rides to my friends. No one would believe I had a giant!”
“Darrin!” Ben shouted. I turned my head away to suppress a laugh.
“That. Was. Not. Nice. Patrick is. Not. A giant.” He suppressed a laugh in spite of what he was saying. I couldn’t look. “Apologize. Right now.”
“I’m sorry,” Darrin mumbled. “Sorry, for what?” Ben was barely able to keep from laughing aloud.
“Sorry for calling you a giant.”
“That’s okay, Darrin.”
“But you are, like, so big!”
“I’m sorry,” he mumbled again. Then he looked at his dad. “Can he still come to my birthday party?”
“Ask him.” Ben turned away quickly before adding, “...but no giant rides.” I could see his shoulders shaking.
“Will you come to my birthday party?” Darrin asked.
“If I’m not working, sure.”
“Wow, twice in a row,” Ben said sarcastically. “I should have introduced you two a while ago.”
We browsed one of the nearby stalls while waiting for Annie and Kathy. There was a photographer, but I politely declined when Ben asked about a new picture.
“When I get back into shape, maybe.”
“Stop. You look good.” He grinned.
I shook my head and smiled back.
He ended up taking one with Darrin instead.
Once the girls found us, we ate dinner, during which Darrin told Annie I was coming to his birthday party; Annie exchanged a private look with Kathy as if to say, “Stranger things have happened.”
Outside the main gates, I shook the girls’ hands one at a time, it was a goofy move but they giggled when my large hand enclosed each of theirs. Darrin hugged my leg and I patted him on the back while he made me promise to come to his party again. Last was Ben. The familiar hurt came back, the pain from the knowledge he’d go back to his life and I hadn’t resolved a damned thing.
He shook my hand and pulled me in for a hug without saying a word. Emotions welled up thru my eyes so I turned away immediately and put some distance between us.
“I’ll e-mail the details for the party,” he called loudly.
I raised my arm in acknowledgment, waving while walking away.

The tears in my eyes, were mine alone.

Patrick and Ben grew up together, falling in love when they were in their teens, but time and distance pull them apart and Ben ended up getting married. Now, twenty years after, Ben is divorced, with two kids and Patrick is finally ready to face him again. Will they be able to recapture some of that love that evaded them before?
This was a very solid debut book by Geoffrey Bauerfeind. I really liked the storyline, although I would've liked to read Ben's POV or some flashbacks. Both Patrick and Ben were very likable, and I really liked their interaction with Ben's children, especially Darrin, and their friends. 
This is a second chance story and it was very realistically done, although I really wanted to slap some sense into both of them to get it right already! It was a lovely journey, though, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Very recommendable!

Author’s Guest Post

Have you seen The Force Awakens yet?  What are you waiting for?  I’ve seen it four times already.  Don’t worry I won’t spoil it for you.  We can talk about it later, just be prepared.  I am well versed in the ways of the Force.

Anyway, my name is Jake.  I’m your average Joe living out in the suburbs of Chicago.  I also happen to be a fictional character in the story To Move Forward.  I work hard, but like to relax and watch movies (sci-fi of course) or hang out with friends.  I’m fiercely protective of my friends.  

Now I know what you are thinking: what is a guy like me writing this for?  Well, when one of your very best friends is in a story, what would you do?  Come on now, you know you would run out and tell everyone.     

Patrick, is a good buddy of mine.  He tends to be shy and awkward around people he doesn’t know well, like you.  With his friends, like me, he is funny and wears his heart on his sleeve.  For as long as I have known him, he has had bad luck with relationships.  Everything seems to be going well for a while, then it all goes bad.  He would be horrified that I am saying this (but I think he would agree) he is his own worst enemy.  We have talked enough about why.    

We all have memories of our first love.  If it was wonderful, we remember it fondly.   If it wasn’t, we painfully move on.  Good or bad it became the past.  Not so much with Patrick.  He has been holding on to some of his memories for so long, they have become part of him and color his experiences even (cough) twenty-some years later.

Don’t get me wrong.  I’m a product of my experiences too.  We all are.  I have had my chances in the past as I suspect you have.  It is human to imagine our own “What if…” scenarios, the “could-a-would-a-should-as.”  It is a rare thing to get a redo.  To Move Forward is about a second chance.  It is Patrick’s “What if…”

Well, that is enough for now.  I am heading out to check if they got in new stock of action figures for my collection.  I really want Kylo Ren.  

Hey, don’t judge, I have seen some of your Facebook pages.  ;-P

Later - Jake


Although this is his debut story, Geoff has been writing on and off since he was a teenager, albeit for himself.  When he finally took the plunge in 2012 and put his first story on the internet, he was surprised and overwhelmed by the positive and encouraging response.  Geoff was born, raised, and lives in the Midwest and has spent most of his life driving between Chicago and Milwaukee.  Currently, he lives in a little house, in a little town, outside another little town, with three cats, a dog, and his very supportive “Husbear.”

 Nightclub owner Marcus Feldman never met a man he didn’t love, at least for the night. Although his best friends have all found love, Marcus shuns their advice to commit to one man and settle down. His past has taught him monogamy and marriage is for fools, and Marcus is anything but a fool. Tyler Reiss’s dream of dancing professionally is unexpectedly cut short and replaced by a different kind of love. He trades in his ballet slippers for go go boots, and spends his nights dancing at the hottest gay club in the city. Flirting with the customers for tips is easy, but resisting the dark and sexy Marcus is becoming harder to do with each passing day. Unforeseen circumstances bring Marcus and Tyler closer and though they give in to their mutual passion, both still struggle to guard their hearts. When crises threaten, Tyler and Marcus find their strength in each other rather than falling apart. Tyler must choose to either run, or stay and fight for the life he wants, while Marcus realizes that love doesn’t mean losing himself and opens his heart, making him a better man in the end.

Review: The Innocent Auction by Victoria Sue

Author Name: Victoria Sue
Book Name: The Innocent Auction
Release Date: December 28, 2015


London 1810.

Their love was a death sentence.

Deacon, Viscount Carlisle, was aware of the slums and gin-lanes of London. Just as he was aware of the underground traffic that furnished the brothels and bath houses with human innocents. He was also aware that the so-called justice system would hang the accused without much of an attempt at a defense, unless the unfortunate had deep pockets to pay for it.

He just hadn’t expected to be directly involved in any of it.

It started with a plea for help and ended with forbidden love, the love between a Viscount and a stable-boy. An impossible love and a guarantee of the hangman's noose.

Will Deacon fight for Tom? Will he risk the death sentence and take that fight from the stately halls of his English mansion to the horrors of Newgate Prison and the slums of London?

Or will he realize that if he doesn't, death will be a welcome end to the loneliness of the sentence he is already living?

Resilient Love #3
Melanie Hansen
Releasing on January 22, 2016.
Dreamspinner Press


Loren Smith has been in love with Eliot Devlin almost his entire life. During their turbulent childhood and teen years, Loren didn’t always understand Eliot, and sometimes he could be a challenge, but Eliot was the only one to ever truly ease Loren’s deep loneliness and accept him. When Eliot’s increasingly erratic and self-destructive behavior culminates in a suicide attempt at seventeen, Loren is devastated.

Upon meeting again by chance nine years later, Loren is enjoying a successful career as a police officer while Eliot’s life has been a constant struggle for stability. In and out of mental hospitals, with a rap sheet a mile long, he continues to be buffeted by the twin storms of mania and depression. Loren’s love and protectiveness for Eliot are deeply ingrained in him, however, and their feelings for each other are quickly rekindled.

Loren has issues of his own he’s dealing with, and trying to understand and cope with Eliot’s bipolar disorder isn’t easy. They believe they’re meant to be, and Eliot brings a fulfillment to Loren’s life that no one else will ever match. But as they both come to realize, love by itself can’t cure all.

When they woke the next morning, they packed an overnight bag and headed north on I-17. Eliot was amazed at the view out his window, craggy rocks and towering saguaro cactus eventually giving way to the pine trees of the Coconino National Forest.
In Flagstaff they stopped for gas, and both of them shivered at the cold bite in the air. They ran by a sporting goods store to buy some fleece pullovers, and Eliot goofed off with a couple of plaid hunting caps, complete with fuzzy earflaps. He grinned at Loren, trying to keep the hat from falling forward into his eyes.
“You look about twelve years old,” Loren said drily. “That hat swallows you whole.”
As Loren reached out to take it off of him, he stroked his thumb along Eliot’s cheek.
“I love to see you smile, to see you happy,” he whispered. He grabbed a simple knit cap and pulled it over Eliot’s head, fussing with it a minute before saying, “Much better.” Eliot scanned the room and, not seeing anyone, stretched up to give Loren a kiss.
Soon they were on the road again heading north, and Loren took Eliot’s hand, twining their fingers together and resting their joined hands on his knee. Eliot could sense Loren was turning something over in his mind, so he just waited.
Are you happy, El?” Loren finally asked. “I’ve seen so many different incarnations of your moods, but I honestly don’t know if I’d recognize happiness in you.” His voice held a faint note of apology for asking, and Eliot glanced at him, surprised but pleased by Loren’s candor.
“I don’t know if I’d recognize happiness either, Loren,” he admitted, rubbing his thumb over the back of Loren’s hand when he threw Eliot a stricken look. “Hey, hey,” Eliot said reassuringly. “I don’t mean that the way it sounds.”
Eliot blew out a breath, thinking about how to explain this. Loren waited, but his lips were pressed together in a tight line, and Eliot squeezed his fingers.
“Usually when I wake up in the morning, I’m afraid,” he said slowly, and Loren opened his mouth to speak but then didn’t say anything. Eliot glanced at him again, then continued, “I feel the craziness, the madness lurking, just waiting for me. It feels like it’s attached to me, that when I get out of bed, I’m dragging it with me. It’s always there, ready to pounce and swallow me up.”
“Oh, El,” Loren whispered achingly.
Eliot stroked his hand. “And this morning when I woke up, I wasn’t afraid. I think that’s what it feels like to be happy. It’s enough for me.”
Loren didn’t say anything, but a lone tear slid down his cheek. Eliot reached up and wiped it away with his thumb, stroking Loren’s jaw tenderly.
“What’s the matter, honey?”
Just then the sign for a scenic lookout appeared, and Loren took the exit, parking the truck. He stared through the windshield, blinking fast, more tears welling up.
“The thought of you for all those years, waking up afraid,” he whispered brokenly. “And I wasn’t there, Eliot. I wasn’t there.” Eliot could see Loren’s throat working as he fought not to cry, and with a soft exclamation, Eliot opened his arms, gathering him close. He stroked Loren’s hair, feeling the hot wetness of tears against his neck.
“But you were there, Loren. Shhh,” he murmured.
When Loren calmed a little, Eliot pulled back and took Loren’s face in his hands, forcing him to meet his eyes.
“I’ve been in a lot of therapy over the years, and they always ask me the same thing, what my best memories are, what memories do I have of feeling happy or safe. I’m supposed to bring them to mind when I’m stressed or scared or angry. It’s part of cognitive therapy, learning to readjust your thinking, to focus on good things and not negative things.”
Eliot caressed Loren’s face. “And Loren, there’s a lot I don’t remember, but what I do, every single one of those types of memories is about you. Being kids, riding our bikes, playing with toys, laughing at stupid jokes. Then later the way you held me in the dark after a nightmare or sat with me when I was so sad and hurting that I wanted to die. The way you—the way you loved me, loved my batshit crazy and fucked-up mess.
“You’ve always been with me, Loren, through my memories. Always.”
Loren completely lost it then, and Eliot let him cry it out, murmuring to him, rocking him, reveling in being the one to comfort, to soothe, of being able to shore up the man he loved when he needed it.
Finally the storm passed and Loren pulled away, sitting up and scrubbing his hands over his face.
“I’m glad, El,” he said hoarsely, clearing his throat several times before starting the truck and pulling back onto the interstate. “I’m glad I’m your best memories.”

We meet Loren and Eliot when they are just six years old. They quickly become the best of friends. Both sets of parents love their children, but work demanding jobs, and are rarely home. We watch as these two young boys grow and change. Eliot has always been a little loud and kind of weird, but as he gets to his teen years his behavior becomes increasingly erratic and promiscuous. Loren recognizes something isn't right, but his fears are ignored for the most part by Eliot's parents. As the relationship progresses it moves from a deep friendship to love, but their chances at a HEA are ripped away when Eliot attempts suicide. They are torn apart and go their separate ways, until 9 years later by chance they meet up again. Can they still get their HEA?

I knew just from the synopsis this would be an emotional story. Melanie didn't disappoint. It was so heartbreaking to watch Eliot spiral so far out of control. Eliot's mental illness was well researched and realistic. I love that when the story ends, like any true person with a mental illness it's still an everyday struggle. Things aren't perfect for either of these men or their relationship and they never will be. They have to fight and sacrifice everyday to make it work.

This story was very well written. It flowed well and the characters are well developed. As I said the book is very realistically written and at times extremely heartbreaking. But the love that these two men share is powerful and I'm grateful to have been able to take this journey with Loren and Eliot. I love Melanie's writing and look forward to much more in the future!

Highly recommended!!

Tom was stunning in the candlelight. The servant’s clothes he wore were a hundred times softer than the rough shirt he had taken off him in the stables. Tom’s skin was just as soft, though, the muscles just as firm, and the reaction to Deacon’s touch just as thrilling.
He heard the small moan from Tom’s lips as he pulled the shirt from his trousers, his fingers touching the skin on his abdomen. Tom lifted his arms above his head in silent invitation, and Deacon’s cock swelled in eagerness. Tom let his arms fall as the shirt was thrown aside, and Deacon hurriedly unbuttoned his trousers, as Tom’s fingers went to work on Deacon’s.
Neither of them said a word. It wasn’t just fear that they would be heard, but more an affirmation that while ever they didn’t speak, they were equals, lovers. The sensation of Tom’s teeth as he grazed his collarbone was perfect. Something to be celebrated, not reviled. Surely something that made him feel so complete could never be a sin? For in that one moment, Deacon didn’t have to pretend anymore and he was content.
In moments, Tom had him undressed. “Stay still.”
Deacon groaned as the order went straight to his cock.
Tom’s calloused fingers swept over his shoulders and down his chest. Tom’s nails dug in around his nipples, and Deacon swayed towards him with every pull as if there were invisible strings attached. Tom bent his head, his warm lips drugging Deacon’s movements till they stilled. How could his skin vibrate as if alive, yet his body remain immovable as if cast in stone?
When Tom knelt in front of him, Deacon gasped. “You—” can’t? That was ridiculous, and Deacon bit the words off before they were uttered. His breaths came out in hurried gasps when Tom looked up, blue eyes on fire almost as they smoldered with heat.
Deacon almost couldn’t breathe as Tom wrapped his lips around his cock. His knees wobbled, inspiring Tom to bring two strong hands around to clasp his buttocks, pulling him nearer and making Tom almost seem to swallow him.
Almost immediately, Deacon felt the tingles in his spine. He had to hang on, and he threaded his fingers through Tom’s hair, desperate for some anchor before he exploded. Thrice. He’d had this done three times by whores, but never had he wished to think of something else while it was being done. Tom had his full attention.
“Oh.” Deacon pressed his lips together hard as Tom’s teeth scraped back and his tongue followed the fold on his foreskin, pushing it back slowly. He could nearly feel the come rush from his balls at the same speed as the blood pounding through his veins. Tom must have sensed this, because when Deacon’s back arched, he intensified the suction nearly to the point of pain, his fingers digging in Deacon’s buttocks to keep him close. That sinful tongue and commanding mouth wringing Deacon’s orgasm from him.
Deacon gasped. Eyes blinded by momentous pressure that rose in him and threatened to take over his body. He heard a small satisfied sound from the man on his knees and that was it, the catalyst that sent him over the edge. Deacon shot his pleasure into the warm mouth compelling it thus, and flung his head back, mouth open in a silent cry, his legs supported only by Tom’s hands.
Deacon’s cock jerked a final time just as Tom swallowed around it and let it drop from his lips. His eyes still closed, he felt the pressure from Tom’s hand pushing him backwards towards the bed. One more step, and Deacon hit the bed with the back of his knees, which folded, ably helped by the push of Tom’s hand. Deacon felt the bed dip and a cautious tongue lick at the side of his throat until he moved his head to the side to give the man better access. He vaguely heard a chuckle, and answered it with a tilt of his lips. He had neither the command of his body nor the presence of mind to do any other.
He just needed a minute. Then he would explore the gorgeous body laid beside him and return the favor. Just one minute.
