Blog Tour and Review | The Proposition (Nights #6) by AM Salinger | #NEW #Review #MMRomance #FriendsToLovers

Title: The Proposition
Series: Nights #6
Author: A M Salinger
Genre: MM Romance
Release Date: 26 June 2018


They call me the Charmer. My best friend Wade tells me it’s because I’m suave and mysterious. But he doesn’t know my secret. The one I’ve kept hidden from him for twelve years. The one I will never reveal to him — Rhys

They call me The Brute. Probably because of my physique. And, let’s face it, because I’m a total dick at times. So Rhys likes to tell me anyway. Thing is, there’s something Rhys isn’t telling me. Something I’m dying to hear from his lips. His sinful confession. You see, I know Rhys’s secret — Wade

Rhys Damon has spent most of his adult life watching Wade Tucker bed woman after woman, his dark desire for his best friend and business partner a secret he is determined to take to his grave, since he knows it will never be reciprocated. With their design firm thriving across two continents, Rhys finds himself content burying his heartache in a string of meaningless, casual sex arrangements. Until the night everything changes.

When Wade Tucker stumbles upon his best friend calling out his name as he pleasures himself, he knows his relationship with Rhys will never be the same again. A year later, the memory of what Wade saw is still branded in his mind and his feelings for Rhys have evolved into something he never anticipated. As tension mounts and the relationship between the two business partners becomes increasingly strained, things finally come to a head the night Wade follows Rhys and discovers him with another man.

After an explosive confrontation, Wade makes Rhys a proposition he can’t refuse: that they try things out for six weeks. Six weeks of exploring a side of each other they never knew before. Six weeks of torrid kisses and sultry touches. Six weeks of screamingly good, scorching hot sex. Six weeks of utterly losing themselves to one another. 

But as the end of their proposition looms in sight, can Wade persuade Rhys that he wants more? Or will Rhys’s deep-seated fears stop him from fully surrendering his heart and soul to the one man he thought he could never have? 

Discover Rhys and Wade’s wickedly intoxicating story in this sixth novella in the hot, contemporary romance series Nights by A.M. Salinger.

This is the sixth book in the Nights series but can be read as a standalone as I had not read any other books in this series. It is also a novella. 

Wade and Rhys have been best friends for over twelve years but Wade did not know that Rhys was gay or had the hots for him until he finds Rhys getting off shouting Wade’s name. Fast forward one year and the tension that has abounded since that night is finally out in the air. 

This was a super hot and steamy read but lacked the angst I feel two best friends would go through when their established relationship moves to something much more intimate. I also felt it needed an explanation about Wade and his change of sexuality or was this purely a gay for you situation, I think it was but hard to read between the lines. I would have loved much more romance and angst to give this read more depth and emotion. It was mainly about the sex and more sex which was written well but it just needed…more. 

Overall a quick romp of a read between two hot best friends so was a three star read for me but could easily have been a four star if more depth covered.

New Release! Review! | Contracted by Marnie Mann | #NEW #ContemporaryRomance #Review


Title: Contracted 
Author: Marni Mann
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publication Date: 28 June 2018

MMContractedBookCover6x9_MEDIUM (1).jpg


 Years ago, I was burned by a woman.

I forgave, but I haven’t forgotten, and it’s a road I’ll never go down again.
My career has become my life instead. I’m Max Graham, the biggest music agent in the business. Women love me, but I don’t do love anymore. I’ve found another way to meet my needs.

Eve Kennedy—stylist to the stars and total bombshell. By far, she’s the most daring woman I’ve ever had in my bed with a sexual appetite as ferocious as mine.

We might just have the hottest sex life in Miami and LA.

We don’t date anyone else—although, sometimes, we invite someone for a night. We travel the world, and I lavish her with gifts. But she knows my career comes first.

And the best part? For the past two years, she’s been happy with our arrangement.

Or so I thought.

I’ve survived heartbreak once before, but this one could be the end of me.

Contracted is interconnected to other books by this author which focus on different couples. This book is about Max and Eve.

Max along with his three best friends own an agency business to the stars. For the past decade he has focused his life on his business and career. He doesn’t do relationships but for the past two years he has continued to enjoy the extremely hot arrangement he has with Eve, who happens to be the best friend of his best friend’s girlfriend. Having got burned in the past by his high school sweetheart he is happy to continue with the arrangement with Eve without the hassle of commitment other than between the sheets.

Eve is an independent woman who has grown her business of dresser to the stars from scratch and is now flying high. For the most part she has been happy to let love and relationships be second to her career and the arrangement with Max suited her fine. However she has started to feel that the lust is turning to something so much more.

There were some parts of this book that didn’t sit right with me but having finished it I can understand the reasoning why they were included. The threesome at the start was a bit of an eyebrow raiser but this was illustrating that the arrangement was purely about sex. I still didn’t like it though. Sorry. The other thing I felt was missing was the romance. Yes it turned up nearing the end and was a great HEA but throughout the book Eve and Max were mostly separated. I also wished the part where Max finally got his head and heart aligned came so much sooner in the book. It appeared to happen overnight and felt rushed.  

Overall though I did enjoy it, it kept me engaged with some times frustration and others with holy hotness. Yes this book was extremely steamy and sexy. I could easily feel the chemistry between Max and Eve so I just wished that connection of a higher level had come through much sooner in the storyline. For these missing parts for me this was a four star read so yes still good but could have been easily a five star. Looking forward to Scarlett’s story.

Regret. I’m a man living with regret. It eats at me night and day. 

Eights years ago, I ran from Reagan instead of facing the music. I was sure he would shut me out if he knew the truth, so I beat him to the punch. I left and never looked back.

Or at least I tried not to.

To this day, Reagan is always in the back of my mind, trying to make me remember the fun we had. I always wonder what he would have thought if I’d told him everything. 

The regret echoes in my head.

Now he’s standing in front of me, looking for answers I doubt he’s ready for.

Can Reagan accept me for who I really am?

Release Tour | Twisted Fates (Fates Reborn #2) by GM Scherbert | #NEW #FFM #Erotica

Title: Twisted Fates
Series: Fates Reborn #2
Author: GM Scherbert
Genre: FFM Erotica
Release Date: 28 June 2018

That first year in Zion, I was happy. With my painful past behind me, things were finally going in the right direction. Dominic and Lilly came along, showing me what my life was missing. How good it could be. How they could each look deep into my soul and set it on fire. And then they each left. The years passed, and I had only the memories of what we’d shared and the family I had made for myself. Fate had other ideas for me though.

Leaving Zion after that summer wasn’t as easy as I’d thought it would be. But, as the days turned to months and then years, I thought about it less. The memories we’d made together–the look in her eye, the smell of her skin, the taste of her on my tongue–slowly started to fade. Now I’m going back, but I know the man I’ve become would be too much for my doll. I’m too dominant, too dark, too brutal. And then I see her, and in no time at all, I know I will stop at nothing to be part of her life, twisted up in her forever. 

That summer in Zion has been the thing I’ve used to measure everything against. Even though it’s been five years since I’ve seen her, I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist her when I returned. A few weeks is all it takes for fate to bring us together. Seeing not only her, but the family she’s built for herself blindsides me. Not with jealousy, just a burning need to be a part of her life. Twisted up in her once again.

Counting to stroke my cock, the thoughts move to the way that she would spend her mornings, making sure that every strand of her hair was in place, that her makeup was put on just so. The way she would put on that fire engine red lipstick. When she would put it on again right after she had given me a kiss, or better yet, sucked my cock leaving a red ring at the base. That thought usually had my cumming, but not today, today my thoughts go on. 

I have to be misremembering the smell of her perfume, that expensive shit, what was it again Dolche. The way she would splash that stuff on multiple times throughout the day and night. How my pillow would smell after she left and how I would bury my face in it after that summer until the smell was no more. Fuck, just the memory of her rubbing her wrists together, it gets me harder than steel, but still I don’t come. 

My mind moves to her body, her long luscious legs, her full breasts, the dimples in her ass, even her little pink pearl, and the ink that covered most of it. The way the lines and colors, patterns and pictures told her story. A story that she told me over countless hours piece by piece putting together the puzzle of her life in ink. My strokes became frenzied as I continued to think about how I would kiss and caress each as she would spin the tales. How she would moan when I would graze my teeth over her skin or sigh as I would breath into her ear, forcing the hairs on her neck to stand up.

GM Scherbert was born on a brisk late April morning and grew up in a small town in the Midwest but, quickly decided that was not the life for her. She quickly moved away for college and thought better of returning to that small town on a long term basis. City living is defiantly the life for her...

GMs day job working with people on the Autism spectrum keeps her on the go most of the time. That is when her three small daughters and husband are not pulling her in different directions.

Gm is the kind of gal who is quirky, unique, smutty, crazy, hard to hate, harder to love. She has taken her love for telling stories to the next level by putting her hat in the romance writing game. 

If you are interested in romance with twists and some darker themes Author GM Scherbert will be right up your alley.
