BLURB:

Raymond Rodriguez’s days of shoving responsibility to the wayside are over. His older brother wants to live with his boyfriend, so Raymond has to get his act together and find a place of his own. But when out-and-proud David Butler offers to be his roommate, Raymond agrees for reasons other than needing a place to crash.

David is Raymond’s opposite in almost every way—he’s Connecticut prim and proper while Raymond is a sarcastic longshoreman from Queens—but their friendship is solid. Their closeness surprises everyone as does their not-so-playful flirtation, since Raymond has always kept his bicurious side a secret.

Once they’re under the same roof, flirting turns physical, and soon their easy camaraderie is in danger of being lost to frustrating sexual tension and the stark cultural differences that set them apart. Now Raymond not only has to commit to his new independence—he has to commit to his feelings for David or risk losing him for good.

REVIEW:

Oh my god, this book is truly amazing! My heart is so intertwined with this series. When I read book one I was so frustrated; dying for just one touch, but by the end of this book I was crying. I’m still crying with happiness. Prince’s Gambit picks up where Captive Prince drops off, with Damen accompanying Laurent into battle. Everywhere they turn they are dodging swords and they don’t know exactly who to trust.

I can’t say much without spoilers, so I’ll just say that the ending is breathtaking and spectacular. One note; I think that Laurent is just too smart to not know Damen’s true identity. It just does not seem possible that he doesn’t know. I hope so much that I’m right.  I can’t wait to read book three. It is eating a hole in my Kindle as I type.

RATING: Absolutely crazy about it!

Book Blast: Bad Cops (Laid #2) by A.J. Llewellyn #MM #Menage #Erotica @AJLlewellyn

Bad Cops Banner v1

Excerpt

Summer held its grip on the city, even though it was November and the Christmas crush had started. Every hour on the hour, the song Let it Snow played on the piped music system of the Grove at Farmer’s Market. Fake snow fell from strategic spots on roofs and lampposts. It was so goofy when the weather was so unseasonably warm.

Lucky laughed as fake snowdrops landed on my cheeks. This outdoor complex, less than a mile from our house, was our go-to place and we loved it. We liked the fish family, as we always called them. We could never decide on the daily specials because everything was wonderful and dirt cheap.

The waitresses laughed with Lucky. Their hopeful stares faltered as he brushed white flakes from my nose and kissed me. There was no mistaking we were lovers. I veered between wanting people to know he was mine and keeping a safe, respectable appearance.

Stunned at the array of food they’d plied him with, I felt a wave of fury riding high in me.

“They gave you Shrimp Louie?” I asked, feeling a stab of jealousy.

“Fat free dressing,” he said.

I laughed. “My baby inhales French fries but likes fat free dressing.”

“Of course. You know I pick my carbs. Say, let’s finish this. I smell the caramel corn popping.”

We ate in silence. We never ran out of things to talk about. It was our first awkward moment together. Ever. It took me by surprise because we never stopped moving our lips. They were either on each other’s mouths, asses, or cocks, arranged around food or great conversation. But we sat, both so quiet, the weight of truth hanging like a steel wrecking ball between us.

He decided to kick the ball.

“Jack, it’s only a few weeks. We’ll be together for Thanksgiving, one way or another.”

“Fuck. It sucks.”

“Yeah, it sucks. But think how much fun we’re gonna have when we meet up again.”

“Shut up,” I said and he laughed.

He took my hand. “Popcorn calls.”

We pushed through the lunchtime crowd and bought a bag of it, still warm from the pot. We sampled some fresh coconut corn and bought a pound of that too. We loaded up on slices of fresh butter toffee after tasting tons of different blends. We couldn’t agree on the peppermint bark and chose candy cane bark instead. We snapped up miniature kiwi fruit and persimmons at the fruit stall. I was validating the parking ticket when I saw him open his cell phone.

“It’s time,” he told me. “They’re ready to roll.”

We went home to our little studio guest house in back of a Pepto Bismol pink duplex on Havenhurst Drive. When I first met him, Lucky had a gorgeous house in the Larchmont district. It was an elaborate prop, part of his undercover disguise as a Mafioso. Now he was on to another secret assignment and I would still be here, working with my own team. There would always be busts, there would always be separations, but this was the first.

He put his hand on my thigh as we waited for a light on the corner of Melrose.

“It fucking blows monkey chunks, Jack.”

“Yeah. It does.”

He stared straight ahead. “I’m going to ask you once and lie to me if you have to, but can you be faithful? Please tell me you won’t fuck anyone else. Please…just don’t do it.”

“I won’t.” I don’t think.

Review: The Necromancer’s Dance (The Beacon Hill Sorcerer #1) by S.J. Himes #MM @WriterSJHimes

TITLE: The Necromancer’s DanceThe Necromancer's Dance (The Beacon Hill Sorcerer, #1)

SERIES:  The Beacon Hill Sorcerer #1

AUTHOR:  SJ Himes

PUBLISHER: Self Published

LENGTH: 212 Pages

BLURB:

In a world where magic is real and evil walks amongst humanity, a young sorcerer is beset upon by enemies, both old and new. Angelus Salvatore is the only necromancer in all of Boston, and his name is whispered warily by the undead and fellow sorcerers alike. He and his brother Isaac are the lone survivors of an attack by an army of the undead, in which Angel used a spell so powerful it forever marked his place in history. Now, years later, Angel struggles to balance his career as a teacher of the higher magical arts, his role as big brother, and a tenuous relationship with an Elder vampire from the local clan. When his brother’s boyfriend is used as a pawn in a mysterious plot to draw Angel out, Angel is once again pulled back into the old hostilities that fueled the Blood Wars and led to his family’s death.

Leaning on others for help is something Angel cannot do, and while he searches for clues into who may be targeting him and his brother, Angel finds his heart steadily growing occupied with Simeon, Elder and vampire. Dealing with death magic and vampires on a daily basis may leave Angel jaded when it comes to life and staying that way, but the more time he spends fending off the ancient vampire’s attention and affections, the more he realizes he wants to give in.

Can Angel find out who wants him dead, and keep his heart safe in the process? How can he fall for a vampire, when his whole family was torn apart by an army of the undead?

Death stalks the streets of Boston’s historic Beacon Hill….and there is no one more suited to battle against death than a necromancer.

MATURE CONTENT Contains graphic violence, male/male sexual contact, a cranky necromancer, a sexy Irish vampire, and a pesky demon.

REVIEW:

The Necromancer’s Dance begins when the powerful necromancer, Angel, is attacked by several vampires in a bar. Angel’s slight build makes him seem at first glance like someone who can be dominated, but his magic is so strong that he can easily bring the vampires to their knees as well as take out everyone in the bar. However, before it gets to that point, the vampire elder, Simeon, comes forward to negotiate. Even though Angel doesn’t trust him entirely, Angel cannot hide his attraction to the vampire. When it becomes clear that someone with a grudge is out to kill Angel, they end up working together to uncover the mystery and confront the creature that wants Angel dead.

I really enjoyed this book. I found the writing engaging and I immediately loved the characters. I’m not usually fond of reading mysteries and detective books, but all the magic in this world drew me in from the start. I loved how Angel, a slight figured beauty, is so feared by all the vampires and how he’s confident in his ability to call the shots. At the same time, Simeon’s character is an extremely hot and debonair vampire. Considering their natures, they should be enemies, but instead they have sizzling chemistry and are perfect together. Overall, this book is great. This was the first thing I’ve read from SJ Himes, but I’ll definitely be reading more. I recommend this book to anyone who likes m/m romance and dark m/m fantasy with vampires, demons and necromancers.

RATING: I liked it!

Feather Fall Tour ~ Evelyn Elliott: Interview + Giveaway #BDSM #Erotica #MM @ev_elliott

 Banner300x250

I’m pleased to welcome Evelyn Elliot on the blog to promote her book, Feather Fall  with an interview, excerpt, and giveaway.

Villains, and Why I Love Them

This is my routine:

  • Plot the story out in exhausting detail.
  • Outline every scene.
  • Vodka.
  • Write the story.

My villain fucked it all up.

Crow, for those who don’t know, was the villain in my first fantasy novel. I say “was” because not only did he narrowly escape death, he has now become the main character of his own book.

Villains are some of the most charismatic characters, I think. There’s something deliciously enticing about a man who knows what he wants and gets things done. Crow… Crow has goals, and he’s willing to do what it takes to accomplish them. No flinching. No tears.

“They say you need to enjoy torture to be good at it,” Crow said. “I disagree. My mother wasn’t sadistic—merely practical. When she needed to know something, she always found out.”

He drew a knife from his boot. One edge was serrated, perfect for sawing through things. “I hated her,” he said. “And I loved Regis. I wanted so desperately to save him that every night I would lie awake, plotting my mother’s death. I became very inventive.”

Clyde couldn’t seem to speak. He stared into Crow’s black eyes.

“For example,” Crow said, “I know that if I tie tourniquets on your arms before I shave away your fingers, you will not die an easy death of blood loss. I know that if I hurt you, I should pour salt and vinegar in the wounds to prevent an infection that might otherwise take you from me. I know how to make you last, and while I am not a sadist, I am practical.”

Then he drew a knife and sank it into Clyde’s hand. The wide blade cleanly severed his smallest finger, and Clyde shrieked into the gag. Crow helped muffle it with his hand.

“Now,” Crow said. “Tell me what you did with my lover, and you can keep the rest of your fingers.”

I’ve always liked sympathetic villains, so I worked hard to make Crow interesting. He isn’t just evil; he can be nice, sometimes. He can be smart. He can be funny.

That’s what makes a villain interesting, I think. Crow doesn’t want to hurt people. But he’s willing to hurt people. Crow only has one friend in the world: Regis Teller, his childhood sweetheart.

So when Regis is kidnapped by a ring of slavers, Crow formulates a plan of action. The only way to save him is to team up with Jonathan, his archenemy. They disguise themselves as master and slave in order to infiltrate the black market.

Whatever it takes.

Blurb:

Hero and criminal. Brute force and subtle charm. Jonathan White and Crow Belcane are polar opposites, but if they want to rescue the man they both love, they’ll have to work together.

After visiting his former lover, Crow knows only one thing: he loves Regis and he will do anything to reclaim him. But before his very eyes, Regis is abducted. Kidnapped by high-end slavers. Only Regis’s infuriating partner, Jonathan—a dangerous vigilante—is willing to help.

To infiltrate the slave ring, Jonathan and Crow disguise themselves as master and pet. As a slave, Crow is pushed to his limit. He’s chained, branded, whipped, and forced to obey Jonathan’s every order. But the longer he spends at Jonathan’s feet, the more natural his disguise begins to feel—and the more he likes it. As much as he hates Jonathan, they make a good team.

Both of them are devoted to Regis. Despite the overwhelming attraction between them, Jonathan is unwilling to betray his partner, and Crow is unwilling to come between them. But once the three of them are together again, all bets are off.

EXCERPT

Crow followed Jonathan to the lodging house. Jonathan looked like he was going to explode with rage the entire walk home. Crow prayed they didn’t come across anyone looking for a fight.

When they strode in, the woman at the counter scowled. “Your boy’s only been gone two days,” she said to Jonathan. “Already bringing whores home?”

Jonathan waved her away. “He’s a friend, Marta.”

“Friend,” she muttered. “Yeah, all right.” She sniffed. “Long as you send him on his way when you’re done with him. Don’t want him harassing my patrons.” She bustled down the hall. Crow stared after her in shock.

“She thought you were a prostitute,” Jonathan said helpfully. He opened the door, then locked it behind Crow. Immediately, he went to the back door and swept it open. He went into the garden and hugged Chartreuse around her neck. His grip was white, and his entire body was rigid. “Fucking slavers,” he muttered. “Fucking disgusting.”

Crow leaned against the doorway, arms folded. “Why did the innkeeper think I was a prostitute? Do you often pick up whores?”

Jonathan rolled his eyes at the joke. But he relaxed a little, and he went back inside with Crow. He shut the door. His fingers rested on the knob. “So,” he said.

“So,” Crow said.

Jonathan looked away, hands clenched. “I need a favor.”

“A favor?”

“Will you teach me how to—” Jonathan grimaced. “How to be charming.”

“What?”

“Charming,” Jonathan said, like his teeth were being pulled. “It’s just this—this thing you Badgedo. I mean, let’s be honest with each other for a moment. You’re a terrible person, and yet every single person that meets you instantly likes you. How do you do that? Show me. I need to improve my acting skills.”

Crow didn’t want to teach Jonathan anything. But they were in this mess together, and if Jonathan slipped up and ruined his disguise, then they would both be in terrible danger. Crow saw on the bed. “Fine. Come here.”

Jonathan circled the bed like a wary animal. He sat far away from Crow.

“First lesson,” Crow said. “Body language.”

“What? Why does that matter?”

“You need to relax. If you look nervous, everyone else will become nervous, too.”

“I don’t feel relaxed,” Jonathan groaned.

“You don’t have to feel relaxed. You have to look relaxed.” Crow leaned against the headboard and splayed his legs. “See? Like this.”

“I can’t fake it the way you can.” Jonathan popped his fingers, then cracked his neck. He stretched his legs out, then touched his toes. Finally, he rolled his shoulders and let out a breath. He did seem a little less tense now.

“Good,” Crow said. “Now. Lesson two. Just be nice. Observe people. Give them compliments. Listen to what they say. It’s easy.”

“Really?”

“Of course. I mean, that’s how I seduced you the night I met you.”

And the room became weirdly silent.

The night they’d met. Right. The night Crow had waltzed in, spent a few minutes talking to Jonathan, and then stripped his pants off. Crow winced. It was probably a raw wound for Jonathan, considering the fact Crow had—at the time—been part of a plot to kill him. He shifted to the middle of the bed. He crossed his legs. “Look at me.”

“What?”

“I want to teach you about sexual tension. It’s important. We need to investigate the House of Red Silk, but if we stall too long, Madam Karis might realize we’re up to no good. You must keep her attention. If she becomes impatient, pretend to be interested in a slave.”

“Interested? How do I do that?”

“Like this.” Crow leaned in. He lowered his eyelashes and tilted his head a little. His gaze slowly went from Jonathan’s hands, to his chest, then—ever so slowly—he met Jonathan’s eyes and held them. The air between them felt thin as paper, as though if he moved one inch closer, the barrier between them would tear.

Jonathan jerked back.

His face was unreadable, but his eyes were wide, pupils blown. Crow put his hand on Jonathan’s arm, and Jonathan jerked. “Tension is a sense of anticipation,” Crow said. “Stretch out that moment. Make it clear you want him.”

Jonathan skirted away to the edge of the bed. “Oh, come on,” Crow said. “If you can’t do it with me, how are you going to do it with a stranger?”

“I keep thinking about that time you threatened to skin me,” Jonathan snapped.

“That happened once.”

The light outside had faded. Twilight lit the garden. Crow felt exhausted from his façade. He got up to draw the curtains.

“No, wait,” Jonathan said. “I….”

Crow glanced back.

Jonathan had a painfully awkward look on his face. He blew out his breath. “Sorry. You’re right.” He got up. He rubbed his face. When his hand moved away, his expression was cool again. He scanned Crow’s face, then—hesitantly—touched Crow’s jaw, then his collarbone. He crowded Crow against the wall. Their chests didn’t touch, not quite.

Heat flickered through Crow’s body, and he was aware, powerfully aware, of how long it had been since he’d trusted someone to touch him. He shuddered.

Then Jonathan pulled away. “Like that?”

“Yeah,” Crow said. “Like that.”

Jonathan shut up and went to bed. He lay fully clothed on the mattress, alone by himself. Crow swept up a pile of blankets and dumped them on the floor by the wall. He burrowed into his little nest and closed his eyes. He didn’t sleep. Where was Regis? Locked in a cage somewhere? Sold?

Review: Chained (Bound Gods #2) by Adrienne Wilder #DarkErotica #MM #LPRTG @Adrienne_Wilder

TITLE:  ChainedChained (Bound Gods, #2)

SERIES:  Bound Gods #2

AUTHOR:  Adrienne Wilder

PUBLISHER: Self Published

LENGTH: 194 Pages

BLURB:

Leo has been sent on a mission to find a missing doxie. And after weeks at Leo’s side, Kaleb is suddenly alone. Free of the cruelty the Chimera, he should be rejoicing. But instead, he becomes aware of a void in his heart, he never knew was there until Leo wasn’t there to fill it. When Leo returns Kaleb is faced with the choice of disobeying Leo—forcing him to take ambrosia—or risk losing him forever.

With a single flower, Leo is back under the control of the Association. And what kind of punishment is suitable for a doxie who disobeys his Master, even though it saves his life? Leo has a list of ideas, starting with Kaleb’s first visit to a Gathering.

At the Gathering of the gods, doxies, and mortal men, Kaleb first lays eyes on Aaron. The beautiful doxie is presented by the god Sol. There he will be fed the ambrosia, Awakened to his journey of immortality, and then serve his god, Sol, for all to see. Only the horror of Aaron’s treatment by Sol makes Kaleb realize monsters come in many forms.

And not all of them hunt doxies.

Goodreads Link

REVIEW:

This book begins when Leo returns from a mission to find a missing doxie. Though Leo kills many of the people responsible for taking him, Leo is injured multiple times. Before he stopped taking ambrosia, he would have healed almost instantly from any wound, but since the drug is out of his system, his immortality is at risk. The other gods fear they may lose Leo and convince Kaleb to feed him the flower with a kiss. Kaleb knows Leo doesn’t want the drug, but he can’t stand the thought of losing Leo. After Kaleb feeds him the flower, Leo is healed, but he is once again hooked on the substance he wanted so badly to escape. Leo wants to punish Kaleb by taking him to a gathering where he would be free for others to touch, but when they arrive Leo guards him jealously. Though the other gods imagine they will have a go at Kaleb, Leo is willing to face the worst punishment to keep that from happening.

Chained was just as erotic and extreme as the first book. Kaleb’s punishments are excruciating, but at the same time amazingly hot. The chemistry between Kaleb and Leo is off the charts, and burning hotter as the effect of the ambrosia that Kaleb emits becomes so strong that it leaves them both passed out for days after they are together. In addition to the unbelievable erotica, we learn more about the world of the gods and doxies. There’s a monster on the loose hunting doxies, and there is so much tension between the gods over Leo’s desire to keep Kaleb that I can imagine some kind of war on the horizon. I was so sad about what happens to Aaron. I don’t know if it’s possible, but I’m hoping that Kaleb has the gift of healing. I look forward to seeing what happens next. I recommend this book to anyone who loves m/m dark erotica, dub-con, and m/m dark fantasy.

Brady Garrett needs to go home. He’s a conscripted recruit on Defender Three, one of a network of stations designed to protect the Earth from alien attack. He’s also angry, homesick, and afraid. If he doesn’t get home he’ll lose his family, but there’s no way back except in a body bag.

Cameron Rushton needs a heartbeat. Four years ago Cam was taken by the Faceless — the alien race that almost destroyed Earth. Now he’s back, and when the doctors make a mess of getting him out of stasis, Brady becomes his temporary human pacemaker. Except they’re sharing more than a heartbeat: they’re sharing thoughts, memories, and some very vivid dreams.

Not that Brady’s got time to worry about his growing attraction to another guy, especially the one guy in the universe who can read his mind. It doesn’t mean anything. It’s just biochemistry and electrical impulses. It doesn’t change the truth: Brady’s alone in the universe.

Now the Faceless are coming and there’s nothing anyone can do. You can’t stop your nightmares. Cam says everyone will live, but Cam’s probably a traitor and a liar like the military thinks. But that’s okay. Guys like Brady don’t expect happy endings.

The Artist and His Alpha Tour: Interview + Giveaway ~ Lisa Oliver

 Banner300x250

Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Lisa Oliver, author of The Artist and His Alpha, book 3 in the Alpha and Omega series.

Hi Lisa, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.

Hi and thank you for having me here today. If I had to describe myself in one sentence it would be to say “I am a character driven writer with a love for all things paranormal.” All of my books are classified as M/M paranormal erotic romances, which is a bit of a mouthful, but those types of books are important to me for many reasons.

This book is another example of my belief in the power of love. Caden, the omega of the story, hides himself away, not in an attic as such, but pretty close, working as a successful artist but shunning the world because of past abuse.  His fear of living is almost tangible. Sean, his Alpha mate is arrogant, self-absorbed and has done enough living for both of them. Their meeting was by chance, but because this is a true mate trope, it changed them both, and it is those changes that are explored in this story.

  • What book do you wish you could have written?

I have read thousands of books over the years – thousands of them, and when I first started writing I wanted to emulate this author, or that one. But I quickly learned it was far better to speak with my own style. I respect all authors for the words they have shared.

  • How important are names to you (in your books)? Do you choose names based on liking the way it sounds or meaning? How do you choose your names?

I am one of those people who believe names have power, so naming my character is an important element of my stories. I always check the meaning of names before I use them, and I often use Celtic or Latin sources to find the more unusual names I use.

  • Were you already a great writer? Have you always enjoyed writing? How long have you been writing?

I have been writing for a living for twenty years, but I have only been writing my fictional stories for the past two and a half years. I have always been an avid reader, since I was four years old, and I think that is important for any writer.

  • Which character, from any of your books, do you consider your greatest work?

All of my characters have traits that are special to me but my most recent character, Luke, from Tangling with Bears, was the most challenging because of his unique personality. I was thrilled when readers told me they got it – they got the type of personality I was trying to portray and they loved him.

I love reading and I make a point of reading at least one book a day. But when I am not at my computer I love photography, painting and drawing in charcoal.  I am also a fan of online shopping and real world arts and craft markets.

Blurb:

Caden Wolfe lives his life hiding from the world. As an Omega with a brute of an Alpha looking for him, he can’t afford to take any chances.  He is happy enough with his art, his one good friend Felix and his agent who adores his paintings. It’s a far cry from life on the streets and Caden is determined to keep working hard, and stay out of the spotlight. Staying away from all things wolf is easy enough in the city, until he meets the one man with the potential to blow his cover and his way of life, out of the water.

Sean Black has it all – a brother for pack, a home pack that is still supportive but far enough away not to interfere with his daily life, a good business, and men who clamor for his attention every night of the week. The last thing he wants or needs is a mate, but after a brief meeting with a gorgeous artist, he realizes his life will change, and not necessarily in a good way.

A misunderstanding leads to danger for Caden and Sean has to make a choice.  Can he give his Omega what he needs, or should he make sure he’s protected and then walk away? A rogue Alpha with an agenda of his own, a trap, and trouble from the council are just a few of the things this couple will have to contend with if they are ever to have their HEA.

BadgeEXCERPT:

“Holy shit, he has a gun. Caden, for fuck’s sake don’t shoot!”

Sean heard Felix yell and he damn near pushed Liam off the fire escape, leaping up the last of the stairs. He could understand how Felix would want to talk quickly, especially if a gun was involved, but he had to see Caden for himself. As he stood on a rickety ledge he was momentarily stunned by the vision in front of him. A huge lit space littered with canvases spoke of hard work, dedication, passion for art and an apparent disregard for mess. And in front of it all stood Caden – locked, loaded and ready for bear.

The young man looked even better than Sean remembered. His slim, pale torso gleamed under the light, his unruly mop of straight blond hair falling just over the top of one eye. All Caden appeared to be wearing was a pair of jeans that hung low on his hips – a truly sexy picture. But it was the confident way Caden held the gun in his hands, and the unflinching glare in his eyes, that touched Sean’s heart. Felix had been right about one thing. Caden was determined to defend his home, and he looked more than capable of doing it. Damn, if that idea didn’t slam Sean in the groin and hang on.

“What are you doing here, Felix?” Caden’s voice held traces of nervousness that wouldn’t be noticed by human ears, but Sean noticed that the hands holding the gun didn’t waver.

“I was worried about you,” Felix called out, stepping closer to the glass, his hands spread to show he was unarmed. “We all were. You wouldn’t answer your door; you weren’t taking my calls. I had to know you were all right. We’re friends, Caden, I thought you trusted me. Now please, let us in. This damn ledge is fucking unsafe and you know I’m scared of heights.”

Caden held his glare for a long minute, and Sean wasn’t sure the young man would ever move. But then he carefully raised his weapon, removed the magazine, which he tucked in his back pocket, and then walked over to rest the gun against the wall.  Only then did he come towards the large panes of glass, releasing a latch, which Sean realized was actually a door latch. What he had mistaken for windows doubled as large sliding doors.

Once all three men were inside of what was a huge space, Caden seemed unsure of himself. “I know we’re friends,” he said to Felix hesitantly – scared, but apparently determined to defend his actions. “I’m not doing anything wrong.” His eyes seemed to catch Sean’s automatically and Sean was shocked to see they were full of fear again. “I’m an adult. This is my place, my territory. I’m not intruding on anyone’s space. I have a right to be here.”

Sean realized in that instant that Caden’s immediate fear had a name – the Black Brothers – and damn, if that didn’t make him feel sick. He and Liam were full-blown Alpha wolves, and his little Omega must have thought that they had a pack, or at least a right to the territory he lived in. No wonder the poor guy had locked himself in and refused to talk to anyone. He was terrified of losing his home and possibly his life.

Felix looked confused. “No one said you didn’t have any right to be here. This is your home, bought and paid for. No one can take it away from you so long as you pay your taxes, and your trust does that for you.”

“Then why did you bring them?” Caden hadn’t stopped looking at Sean, but clearly Liam was included in the ‘them’ comment as well. “They know what I’m talking about. Why are they here, if not to beat me, torture me, rape me and then kick me out of my home? That’s what men like them do. What are they doing here?”

REVIEW:

Such a beautiful book! The story begins when Jeremy, an eighteen year old who’s living on the streets, is saved from a gang of ruffians intent on assaulting him. Jeremy’s savior, Noah, takes him in and protects him from a pimp who’s trying to turn him. Jeremy falls for Noah, but since Jeremy is twelve years younger than him, he doesn’t want to think of Jeremy in that way. Noah also has a past that he doesn’t want to share with Jeremy. Noah used to be a rent boy, but when he broke away, he decided to dedicate his life to helping rent boys escape the sex industry and start over. Noah want’s to shelter Jeremy from that existence, but Noah’s feelings for Jeremy as well as their cohabitation ends up putting Jeremy in danger.

This is the first time I’ve read Eden Winters, so I picked this book up out of curiosity, but I’m so glad that I did. The story-line was fantastic, and the characters were so honest and good. I loved Noah’s mission as well as the twist of his relationship with his former pimp. The sex scenes were extremely hot, but what I loved the most was the tragic beauty of Noah’s situation and the deep emotions involved.  He is truly a hero and I was in tears by the end of the book. If you love a book that can make you feel, this is definitely it. I recommend The Angel of 13th Street to anyone who loves m/m romance, drama, and YA.

RATING: Absolutely loved it!
