“If this is a sin, then I’ll burn in hell for all eternity. I’ll never deny you, not in this life and not in the next.”

Blurb:

When Chase Batton’s wild ways land him six months away from failing to graduate from college, he is forced into a remedial program with the university’s academic star, Jaxon Lee. Either that or answer to the heads of the third richest family in the world: his parents. The latter is no choice at all.

Jaxon is distant and cold, and unimpressed by Chase’s social and economic rank. On the other hand, Chase couldn’t be bothered by the opinions of the supposedly hottest gay guy on campus. He was, after all, a long way up the food chain, not to mention straight as an arrow on the bullseye.

But something happens during a vicious argument, and everything changes.

Chase is left reeling, and he soon learns that Jaxon is keeping secrets too…

Title: Unexpected

Author: Felice Stevens
Genre: M/M Romance (standalone)
Release Date: June 23, 2022
 
 
★★★★★ Carol’s Review ➤ “This is a beautiful, steamy, swoony story of two men who were searching, even though they didn’t realize it. And when they found each other, they found that missing piece of themselves they needed to be whole.”
 
★★★★★ Goodreads Review  “Oh man, this book is so good.”
 
★★★★★ Goodreads MM Reviewer ➤ “Ahh!! Felice never failed to amaze me! 😇”
 
Party planner Colin Brightman doesn’t drink or dance, preferring to go to bed early with his spreadsheets and lists. All he wants is to forget the singles weekend his friends sent him on, but he’s stuck with a suitcase filled with condoms and skimpy Speedos that don’t belong to him.
He doesn’t expect his luggage thief to be ex-baseball superstar Walker “Walk-Off” Scanlon. Or that Walker has hired his firm to put on a charity event at his bar. Colin can’t deny the mixed emotions the annoyingly flirty man stirs in him, but he refuses to fall for someone who racks up lovers as easily as he once hit home runs.
No matter how much he might want to.
Walker Scanlon likes his men easygoing with no complications. He’s had enough of those in his life. So why is he drawn to tense and straitlaced Colin and his frosty scowl? Even his corny one-liners and jokes don’t get him a smile. But the sparks between them are undeniable. And that unexpected kiss? Amazin’.
Now if only Colin would stop running away. Good thing Walker is fast on his feet, because he has no intention of letting Colin go.
When Colin and Walker come face to face with past hurts and betrayals, they’ll need to trust themselves and each other to learn that heartbreak and love don’t go hand in hand. It’s the bottom of the ninth and if they swing for the stars, they just might hit the grand slam of a lifetime.
 

Title: Reigniting Chase

Author: Jeanne St. James
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: July 30, 2022
Cover Design: Golden Czermak @ FuriousFotog

An unexpected collaboration between two authors that’s hot enough to spark a fire…

Chase
After an excruciating loss, I’m desperate for a fresh start.
Away from the painful memories.
Away from everyone I know and anyone who knows my story.
That’s how I end up in Eagle’s Landing, Pennsylvania.
As a bestselling author, my main reason for moving to a remote mountain cabin is to overcome the writer’s block that crushed my creativity for the past two years. My hope is to rediscover my words in the quiet, small town where no one knows me. Or my past.
A place where I can blend in enough that I become invisible.

Rett
Even though Chase, one of my favorite authors, insists he wants to be left alone, I refuse to let him wallow in whatever’s drowning him.
As a local bookstore owner and author myself, I’m intrigued by the man who’s a master of the written word. Unfortunately, his social skills could use a lot of work.
Even so, I’m determined to pull the irritable and frustrating man out of the dark pit he’s fallen into and back to the surface, no matter how hard he fights it. I only hope dragging Chase down that fiery path just might reignite his spark and that I don’t get burned in the process.

Note: Please check the content warning before reading or purchasing. It can be found at the beginning of the book (accessible by Amazon’s “look inside” feature or by downloading the sample) as well as on my website. This standalone gay romance has a guaranteed HEA, no cheating and no cliffhanger.

Title: Jerk: An ABCs of Love Novel
Author: Daryl Banner
Genre: MM Romance, Second Chance Romance
Cover Designer: Indie Sage
Model: Carlus Tyler Reed
Photographer: Eric David Battershell
Publisher: Frozenfyre Publishing
Publication Date: June 9th, 2022
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

You don’t want a nice guy.

Just admit it.

 

The real guy you want to sweep you off your feet isn’t wearing a cardigan. He won’t remember your anniversaries or bring you hot chocolate on a cold night.

 

The guy you want is rough, rude, and hotter than sin.

 

A total jerk.

 

Still, inexplicably, you’re madly in love with him. Why? Is the sex really that good? Why don’t you want the nice guy? The one you can actually take home to Mom and Dad? The one who smiles with his eyes, who will laugh at your jokes — even the bad ones? The one who will hold you after a hard day, who will run to your side even if it’s inconvenient, who will cherish and worship you like something priceless and precious?

 

It’s inevitable that guys like me lose hope in ever finding love. Capturing your heart isn’t easy when the world is full of countless jerks you’re so willing to give it to. What’s a nice guy to do when he’s playing a game you won’t let him win?

 

To tell my story properly, we have to start at the end.

As in: the end of the Mr. Nice Guy I used to be.

“Hey, Romeo.” He smiles, showing the tiniest dimples at the corners of his soft, velvety lips—or at least I imagine they’re velvety, from all the fantasies I’ve had about kissing them. “Your membership is about to expire in a few days, and I just wanted to check if—”

 

“Sure, I’ll renew.”

 

“Really? Awesome.” He goes to the computer and starts typing, then frowns. “Wish they’d update the system here. Last gym I worked at, all of this would be online or automated and I wouldn’t have to bug you.”

 

I prop my elbows on the counter. “Struggles of a privately-owned gym, I guess?”

 

“You got it.”

 

My gaze dances down from his pretty, deep brown eyes to his tight polo shirt, the gym logo printed on it, right next to his shiny nametag: Danny Chen.

 

Danny is a nice guy. A real one. The exact kind I’d swipe right on—even if I knew there was no chance of him swiping right back. A guy I’d happily take on a date, hang out with for hours, laugh at each other’s jokes, and cuddle with while watching a movie neither of us are really paying attention to, our hearts too distracted as they drum with anticipation.

 

He’s the kind of nice guy where your happiest days aren’t even sexual. They’re emotional, sweet, and meaningful. They’re the mug of hot cocoa by a fire, and the blanket he thoughtfully wraps you in. They’re holding each other in a cushy old armchair that smells like every holiday season, me stroking his arm thoughtfully while telling him about my day. They’re us at a rescue shelter, picking out which sweet puppy to take home, and choosing what we’ll name him or her.

 

He’s the guy who makes it easy to believe in a happy-ever-after.

 

I can imagine it all with Danny, as if our life is a beautiful memory I haven’t made yet.

 

“You’re all set,” he announces with another breath-stealing smile. “Membership renewed.”

 

And despite all my doubts, I might even have the courage to ask Danny on a date, if it weren’t for one stinging, unfortunate setback…

Title: Heat
Author: TL Travis
Genre: MM Romance
Cover Designer: Indie Sage
Model: Simon
Photog: Paul Henry Serres
Publication Date: May 25th, 2022
Hosted by: Lady Amber’s PR

Blurb:

What do you get when you throw a burly blacksmith and the town’s poster child for clumsiness together?

 

A whole lot of swearing and a threatening use of duct tape.

 

And the need to construct a sign that reads, “DO NOT LET CAMPBELL NEAR THE FORGE!”

 

Alabaster Falls’ local blacksmith, Daughtry Blackburn, was satisfied with his reclusive status. He had iron to bend and orders to fill but he knew he needed something to take the business to the next level. His father had fought taking their business into the twenty-first century, but since he’d passed, it was up to Daughtry to keep things forward moving and he knew there was no way to do so without being on the World Wide Web. Metalworking, he got. Computers, not so much.

 

Campbell Jenkins was desperate to be accepted by his peers in the little town he’d called home since birth. Problem was, he was accident-prone. Not just in the sense of an occasional break here or there, but in a “can’t walk by glass without it shattering – even when it seemed he was a mile away” type of thing. No matter how hard he tried to fit in, this curse led to failure. Forced to stay stuck inside the walls of the home his grandmother left him, he spent his time learning all he could about computers and social media. His online friends never cast him aside—too bad the real world wasn’t as kind.

 

When he answers an ad in the local paper for online marketing assistance, he wasn’t sure what to expect. Least of all, the brawny man answering the door to a log cabin that had seen better days.

 

Can two opposites in forced proximity learn to play nicely or will one wind up in an iron grave?

TL Travis is an award winning, published author of LGBTQIA+ contemporary romance and erotic musings that have earned a “Best-Selling Author” flag in the US and Internationally.

 

In her spare time, when she’s not weaving steamy webs, she enjoys spending time with her family, fishing, wine tasting and people watching. Everyone has a story to tell, half the fun is dreaming up with what it is.

 

TL is surrounded by her 4-legged rescue family, her sons and adorable grandkids.

She will continue saving furry friends in need for as long as she breathes. Tl would like to remind you to “Adopt, not shop.” Saving that lost soul may very well save yours.

Title: Honestly Yours
Author: Jaime Reese
Genre: Contemporary M/M Romance Standalone
Release Date: May 12, 2022
Cover Design: Reese Dante

“This was a beautiful story of love and found family.”

 
The truth hurts. But in the end, honesty wins. Or does it?
Warren Prescott loves a challenge. He knows how to play the game and adapts when necessary to succeed in his cutthroat world. Tired of pining for a man he’s wanted for months, Warren intends to seal the deal. Until that man throws him an endearing curveball…
Be honest.
Gian Benedetti doesn’t play games. Success has cost him the personal connections he craves, and he doubts he’ll take another chance on a relationship. Until the attractive, younger man with the brazen personality and confidence stirs his interest.
Except…someone else is playing games.
And threatening everything Gian has worked hard to achieve.
Warren won’t rest until he uncovers the new player and gets his forever with Gian.
But they’ll soon face a hard truth—
Honesty may be what brings them together…
Or it could be the one thing that tears them apart.
***
Honestly Yours is an age-gap standalone romance. It features a snarky younger man with a giant crush on a good-hearted, affectionate, bisexual older man. Expect some banter, a little mystery, a few twists, a dash of angst, curious parents, animal trivia, and a whole lot of love…and hugs (so many hugs).
Jaime Reese is the alter ego of an artist who loves the creative process of writing, just not about herself. Fiction is far more interesting. She has a weakness for broken, misunderstood heroes and feels everyone deserves a chance at love and life. An avid fan of a happy ending, she believes those endings acquired with a little difficulty are more cherished.
