Blog Tour and Review: Endings and Beginnings by K.C. Wells and Parker Williams

EndingsandBeginningsFS

Author Names: K.C. Wells & Parker Williams

Book Name: Endings and Beginnings

Series: Collars & Cuffs

Book: Eight

This is the final book in the series, which should be read from Beginning to End. 😉 (See what we did there?)

Release Date: July 18, 2016

Blurb:

In all his relationships, Darren Fielding never found the level of intimacy he witnessed between Thomas Williams and his sub, Peter, the day of Peter’s “rebirth.” Not only that, he never realized such intimacy was possible. For two years, Thomas’s business card has been burning a hole in his wallet. When Darren’s lover moves on, maybe it’s finally time to see where that card takes him.

Collars & Cuffs’s new barman, JJ Taylor, is really conflicted right now. He went to the club with a very specific purpose, already convinced of what he’d find there. Except it’s not what he expected at all. He certainly didn’t anticipate finding himself drawn to the new wannabe Dom. Nor could he have guessed the direction that attraction would lead him.

Old love, new love, vows, pain, rage, moving in, moving on…. The members of Collars & Cuffs face an event that touches some of them deeply, but it will only reinforce what they already know: together they are stronger, and some bonds cannot be broken.

Review: Dom of Ages by K.C. Wells and Parker Williams (Collars & Cuffs #7)

51OlZMr9HnL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_This book started out difficult for me. Eli looks for someone to serve him, and Jarod looks for someone to serve. It sounds like an easy setup, but it wasn’t. Eli acted stupid and immature, and I simply couldn’t like him. He made so many mistakes that I had real trouble believing he is a good Dom. Why Jaord stays with him wasn’t really clear for me. I would’ve told him to go learn how to treat another person, sub or not, and then come back. Sadly, K.C. and Parker gave away so many chances of making this a truly beautiful story.

Yes, Eli grew and started to realize what he had in Jarod, and Jarod in turn starts to trust his new, younger Dom, but still, for me the damage was done. I tried to like it, I really did, but this book only earned 3.5 stars from me.

Review: Make Me Soar by K.C. Wells (Collars & Cuffs #6)

MakeMeSoarLGI’ve been looking forwad to Dorian’s story. I knew there was  more to the character than being the resident pain slut at Collars & Cuffs, but I never expected the reason for his search. He’s looking for something only one man can give him– Alan, a bit of a sadist. He gets off from making Dorian suffer, in a really loving way. That sounds odd, but once you read Make Me Soar, you know what I’m talking about. Dorian needs it, the being kept on the edge, denied pleasure, until he can let go and feel. I can honestly say I never read such a good book about a sadist, about someone who likes to see someone suffer, but loves him on the other side and does it for his partner as well.

What was a bit stange for me was that Alan started very soon after Dorian got hurt to play with him. I understood why it was necesary, but for me, it was rushed. In my eyes, he would’ve needed more time to heal, come to terms with what happened. He gets some time, but it still felt rushed.

That makes 4,5 Stars from me

Review: The Keeper Of Dragons by J.A. Culican (YA Novel)

51dxQC8Z6iL._SX322_BO1,204,203,200_I’m on a total dragon trip right now, so I jumped at a chance to read the ARC of this lovely story. J.A. weaves a great tale about young Cole, who returns home to his parents and Ochana, where he learns that he’s a Prince. And the Keeper of all dragons.

It’s an intriguing story that kept me up at night. I greatly enjoyed the world building and the storyline (even though it was strange for me, since there’s no love story LOL). A highly recommended tale for everyone who loves dragons and the beginning of a promising series.

4,5 Stars from me.

Review: Damian’s Discipline by K.C. Wells & Parker Williams (Collars and Cuffs #5)

DamiansDisciplineLGThis book wasn’t what I expected. I somehow thought Jeff would come to love submission, but boy, was I wrong. This story is different, but a good different. The whole concept of Domestic Discipline isn’t mine, but I understood why it worked so well in this story.

Jeff is someone who get’s another chance, when he’s given up all hope, but there are times when he stumbles and falls. There are times when the demons win, when he can’t go on.
Damian keeps his cool (at least on the outside) and he helps Jeff come to understand that he is a good man. He helps him to love himself again and understands in the process what kind of Dom he is (or isn’t)

5 stars from me

Review: Before There Were Three (Ethan and Rhett) by L.A. Witt

I don’t hide that I’m a big fan of Lori’s books and I loved ‘The Distance Between US’, so when she offered an ARC for ‘Before There Were Three’, I nearly broke my fingers to answer the email.

Let me spoil the fun with saying it would’ve been worth a couple of broken fingers. The book is very typical L.A. Witt, hot steamy sex, more hot steamy sex and then some more streamy hot sex. 🙂 That’s what I loved in ‘The Distance Between Us’ and I didn’t get disappointed here either. Lori’s writing style is well rounded, easy to read, and the story is great to follow.

I knew how it would end, but it was still awesome to see how Ethan and Rhett meet and fall in love. If you’ve read and enjoyed ‘The Distance Between Us’, you need to read this book. But one word of advice: Don’t read ‘The Distance Between Us’ immediately after ‘Before There Were Three’. It hurt to first see Ethan and Rhett so happy, only to go to the next book where they can’t stand the sight of each other.

5 Stars from me.

BookBlast: The Story of Love by A E Ryecart

amazon-kdp

Author Name: A E Ryecart

Book Name: The Story of Love

Series: Urban Love

Book: Two

Can be read as a standalone

Release Date: May 19, 2016

Blurb:

No strings. No names. No repeats. Archie Jones and Zack Lorrimer-Grant’s ground rules have always kept them safe – until now.

Getting down and dirty with anonymous hook-ups is a game Archie and Zack have always played. It keeps life fresh and exciting and everybody’s having fun. Aren’t they?

Archie isn’t. The hook-ups stopped being fun long ago. It’s a game he wishes he’d never started and he wants to stop playing. Now. Right now.

The men keep Zack’s fear at bay. Fear that without them, Archie will realise Zack alone will never be enough to make him truly happy.

Terry Franklin isn’t a hook-up. He’s far more dangerous, and Archie is determined to do whatever it takes to keep the man out of their bed and out of their life.

Where Archie sees a threat, Zack sees a kindred spirit. Terry is the lifeline Zack never knew he needed, but this lifeline could mean the death of him and Archie…

The Story of Love is the second in the Urban Love Contemporary Gay Romance series but can be read as a stand-alone. If you love your MM romance laced with angst and high emotion and your MCs complex, multi-faceted men facing up to and overcoming challenges against all the odds, A E Ryecart’s story of Archie and Zack will leave you breathless.

Note: The Story of Love is an MM romance, not MMM.
