The past has left her scarred and broken, but does she have the strength to risk her heart on the future?

Blurb 

When Sarah steps off the plane in Provincetown, she has only one goal—to leave the past behind her. As she begins her journey of rediscovering herself, she meets one of the town’s deputies under less-than-ideal circumstances but soon finds herself drawn to her in ways she knows she can’t allow.

Deputy Catrina Diaz loves her job, her family, and her friends, which is why she became a deputy to begin with, to keep her town and those she loves safe. When she crosses paths with Sarah, a newcomer to town, she finds herself wanting more than Sarah is wanting to give.

Sarah fights hard to find herself as the past keeps finding new ways to haunt her. As their relationship grows, will the secrets Sarah is hiding, secrets that Cat realizes everyone knows but her, finally pull them apart? Can Sarah trust Cat enough to overcome her past and the insecurities it has caused and take a chance on the one thing she thought she could never have again-love?

Excerpt 

Grateful for the privacy, Sarah sat down, facing Cat on the couch. “Cat, I don’t want you to think…” Sarah paused, struggling to find the words to explain.

“What? That you’re avoiding me?” Cat reached over and took Sarah’s hand, their fingers automatically intertwining. “Sarah, I like you. I like spending time with you.”

Sarah was overcome with sadness. “Cat, we can’t.”

“Give me one good reason why.”

A tear slid down her cheek as she spoke the simple truth that had consumed her since she had met Cat. “Because I’m broken, and you deserve better.”

Cat reached over and gently wiped the errant tear away from Sarah’s cheek. “We are all broken in some way, but that doesn’t mean we can’t help each other to heal.”

Sarah shook her head, frustrated for what she wanted and for what she could never have. “Cat, you don’t understand.”

“No, I don’t, but I’m willing to wait until you are ready to tell me. Until then…” Cat leaned forward and gently, almost shyly, placed a soft kiss on Sarah’s lips. The feel of Sarah’s lips flooded her senses and filled her with a warmth so intense she finally understood what all the romance novels were talking about. She understood what it meant to fall with one simple kiss. “I want to spend time getting to know the Sarah you are wanting to become.”

Sarah did her best to fight back and hide the feelings she had for Cat, but that kiss, how could she hold back now? That one simple kiss tore down the walls she had built to protect herself and others. She had to do what was right and stop this before it got out of control, but what her mind wanted was overridden by her heart, surprising even herself. “Cat, I don’t know if I could handle you walking away if you find out what happened to me. I’m telling you, it’s horrible, and it’s not something you can unsee.”

It broke Cat’s heart to see the tears that were now flowing freely down Sarah’s cheeks. She wanted to erase the past and the hurt it had caused her. Instead, she pulled Sarah into her arms and held her as she cried. “I see you for who you are, and that’s all that matters. Just give me a chance to prove it to you.”

Sarah wanted to say no because she couldn’t take anymore hurt or disappointment in her life, but the longer Cat held her, the harder it was to fight. Finally, she dried her eyes and sat up. “Maybe…”

A Crown of Iron & Silver by Hailey Turner (Audio: Gary Furlong)

47936166. sy475

Four out of Five Stars

Audio Narrator: Gary Furlong

The Summary: Never promise a life that isn’t yours to give.

New York City is decked out for the holidays, and Special Agent Patrick Collins is looking forward to a reunion with his old team when he gets assigned a new case. A human child is missing, and the changeling left in her place causes a prominent witch family to demand justice from the fae.

Meanwhile, continued harassment from the New York City god pack forces Jonothon de Vere to formally establish his own with Patrick. Doing so will mean a civil war within the werecreature community—a war they risk losing from the start without alliances. Making bargains with the fae is never wise, but Patrick and Jono have nothing to lose when a fae lord comes asking for their help.

The Summer Lady has been kidnapped from the Seelie Court, and if they can find her, Patrick and Jono will cement an alliance with the fae. But the clues to her disappearance are found in Tír na nÓg, and the Otherworld has never been kind to mortals.

Venturing past the veil, Patrick and Jono risk losing territory, time, and their very lives while searching for answers. Because the Queen of Air and Darkness knows they are coming—and the ruler of the Unseelie Court has an offer for them they can’t possibly refuse.

The Review

A Crown of Iron & Silver did not let me down. At all. First, let’s talk audio.

Gary Furlong does an amazing job in voicing Patrick, Jono, and the entire cast of unique characters. I could listen to him speak as Jono for forever. His voice was soothing, mischievous, and when the time called for it? Sexy as hell. With audiobooks of this length (ten hours) I tend to have issues staying interested. That was not the case with this audiobook. I was immersed in the Soulbound world.

Now onto the book review!

Patrick manages to get pulled into a case and into the complicated world of the fae (and brings everyone along with him on the ride). I enjoyed the Celtic, folklore that most of this story was rooted around.

We get to learn more about Patrick’s life in the Mage Corp and the men he spent his time fighting side-by-side with in the 30 Day War.

I’ve wanted to see pack interaction. And I got it! I needed to know how Jono and Patrick were going to lead their and work with their pack. Wade, oh Wade, he had me cracking up. I swear I’ve never wanted Poptarts more than after Wade munching on packet after packet.

Patrick and Jono make my heart melt into a gooey puddle of happiness. Their relationship is still growing and changing, but in all the best ways. Also, they just have a chemistry together that makes my breath catch. I can’t wait for the next book in the series!

Hell and Gone by Tal Bauer

Five out of Five Stars

The Summary

Two vanished cowboys.
Three hundred missing cattle.
The Crazy Mountains are devouring everything they see.

Everett Dawson, Montana’s newest Stock Detective, has been sent from Helena down to the Crazy Mountains. Cattle are going missing in the Crazies and Everett is charged with finding these modern-day rustlers and bringing them in.

When he arrives, he finds a hanged cowboy and a heap of questions. Was it suicide or was it murder? Why are cowboys fleeing the Crazies? Far from a simple investigation, Everett’s case plunges deep into the mountains’ dark past.

Lawrence Jackson, the bad boy who runs the Lazy Twenty Two, was the last man to see the dead cowboy alive. There’s a whole forest fire of smoke swirling around Lawrence, and where there’s smoke, there’s flame… and maybe even murder.

But Everett is drawn to Lawrence, and if he takes the risk Lawrence offers, will Everett find what he craves, or will the Crazies claim their next victim

The Review

Tall Bauer has created another picturesque, gritty and thrilling western set in Montana. Everette is fresh out of the military and headed right into the Crazy Mountains were cattle have gone missing, and ranch hands are slowly starting to disappear.  Lawrence Jackson is beyond frustrated with the lack of investigation happening and doesn’t believe a green Stock Detective, Everett Dawson, is going to make much headway in the investigation.

Let me talk about Lawrence and Everette for a moment. Both men distrust each other from the beginning, but as time passes that distrust develops into trust. Everett recognized that frustration in Lawrence and after hearing everything, his mind starts connecting the dots. Once they start working to trust each other, the chemistry between them ignites.

Everette has flashes of PTSD and they felt genuine. There were subtle triggers that put him back in the desert and deep in his memories. The void that had been in him since his military tours, was finally being filled by one hell of a stubborn cowboy, Lawrence Jackson. I loved that stubborn, take no shit attitude that Lawrence had. He was a modern cowboy, who worked hard and loved harder.

I grit my teeth, felt the frustration that Lawrence had, connected the dots just as Everette did, and melted into satisfaction.

Loving a Warrior by Melanie Hansen

40246271

Four out of Five Stars

The Summary: BUD/S: six months of the most intense training there is. It’s survival of the toughest, and Matt Knytych is determined to come out the other side a navy SEAL.

Distraction is life or death. And just the sight of former marine Shane Hovland is enough to shake Matt’s concentration.

Shane came to BUD/S training ready to prove himself—again. Semper Fi is forever, but he needs a new start. Not this dangerous heat with a man he barely knows.

Everything they’ve ever wanted is riding on a thin, punishing line. And they’ll have to fight for more than just each other if they want to make it through intact.

After all, the only easy day was yesterday.

The Review

It’s going to be the most intense six months of training that Shane Hovland and Matt Knytych will go through and they’re determined to make it out on the other side as Navy Seals. The men they end up training with are the people that they must depend on in life or death situations.

Right from the get-go both of them men are attracted to each other. At first it’s a bit of annoyance, because this is not something either of them need while going through training. They need to focus. But sometimes losing focus during your off times is exactly what you need.

The chemistry between Matt and Shane burns slowly as they fight their attraction to each other. It’s probably one of my favorite parts of two alpha men, fighting their feelings but feeling it all at the same time.

Neither man is perfect in this story. They both have a history, demons to fight, and insecurities to deal with. There were moments you just wanted to hug Matt and tell him it was all going to be okay. Then to make sure that Shane knew things were going to be different this go around.

It wasn’t all about the romance either. The author puts you into the training these men go through and how that effects them physically and mentally. I think without that aspect this would not have been such a binge-worthy book.

Rough Terrain by Annabeth Albert

41121276

Four out of Five Stars

The Summary: The camping trip from hell may be the first stop on the road to happily-ever-after in Rough Terrain, the final book in Annabeth Albert’s critically acclaimed, fan-favorite Out of Uniform series.

Navy SEAL Renzo Bianchi has a soft spot for Canaan Finley, and not only because the man makes a mean smoothie. He’s the first guy to get Renzo’s motor revving in a long time. But when he agrees to Canaan’s insane charade—one all-access fake boyfriend, coming right up—he never expects more than a fling.

Creating a hot Italian SEAL boyfriend to save face seemed like a good idea…until his friends called Canaan’s bluff. Now he’s setting off into the woods with the very man who inspired his deception, and Canaan is not the outdoorsy type. The sparks are already flying when a flash flood separates them from their group, leaving Renzo and Canaan very much trapped…very much alone in the wilderness.

Working together to come up with a plan for survival is sexier than either of them expects. But back in the real world, being a couple is bringing its own set of hazards…

The Review

Canaan Finley works at a smoothie shop that Renzo Bianchi (aka Rooster) and other SEALs like to frequent. He doesn’t only have a weakness for men in uniform, there’s more to him. He takes care of his grandfather and he’s studying to be the nurse and he sometimes fills in as a drummer for his former band when needed. When he is invited on a camping trip with those former band mates, they don’t want him coming alone. He makes up a story saying his SEAL boyfriend may not be able to make it, duty calls at any time. The problem is, he doesn’t have a SEAL boyfriend. After spending an evening with Renzo he broaches the topic to see if may Renzo wouldn’t mind pretending for the weekend. When disaster strikes, they both acknowledge that there may be something more there. But can Canaan handle being with someone in the military, who moves around when it’s needed and is deployed at moment’s notice?

Oh, ya’ll, fake boyfriend trope? Sign me up every freaking time. Add in lots of kissing? Annabeth Albert can write some intense kissing scenes. Like when I become a super amazing author, I want to write kissing scenes like hers, kind of intense. There was an intimacy Renzo and Canaan’s kisses that I feel like a lot of authors over look between their characters. That level of intimacy shows a level of trust, understanding and caring between Renzo and Canaan. I’m a sucker for it and I have no shame.

Renzo, no matter how much pride he takes in his body, he’s still insecure. It hurt knowing that there were parts of his romantic life he had been denying himself. He tried so hard to be the perfect SEAL, son, brother and I think that quest for perfection caused a rift in himself. I could relate entirely on that part (except my body is NOT a temple lol). Canaan was so gentle with Renzo and showed him bits and pieces of his life. I think Renzo needed the balance that Canaan offered him and because of that balance he bloomed.

Of course there were parts that you wanted to shake Renzo and be like, “Why are you doing this to yourself?!” But it took someone at work, which everyone should have a boss like that, who kind of woke him up to what was happening and why he was feeling the way he was.

I absolutely loved this installment of the Out of Uniform Series and I’m looking forward to Annabeth’s new series that is to be set in Alaska!! She is definitely one of my favorite authors that I recommend to everyone who reads, or is interested in reading M/M.

In the Ruins by Hailey Turner

Audiobook Review

Four out of Five Stars

The Summary: Truth and lies.

Captain Jamie Callahan knows the Metahuman Defense Force frowns on fraternization. For once in his life, he’s breaking all the rules. Having Staff Sergeant Kyle Brannigan on his team and in his bed is worth the risk of being found out. When a mission comes down requiring Alpha Team to go undercover in order to infiltrate a criminal alliance, Jamie knows it won’t be easy. Putting his family’s name on the line is nothing compared to the role the MDF wants him to play—that of a billionaire’s son, discharged from the military, with a lover on his arm, looking to make his own shady business deals.

Dirty little secret.

Kyle knows the only way to be with Jamie is to hide their relationship from their superiors. Waking up to Jamie at home is more important than being together in public, or so Kyle thought, until he comes face to face with what he’s been missing. Pretending to be a couple on paper for the sake of the mission thrusts Kyle into a world of incredible wealth and a social status he’s not sure he belongs in, but he’ll do anything to stay by Jamie’s side.

Play the game to win.

Surrounded by the enemy, Jamie and Kyle need to trust each other now more than ever. Their covers—and the life they’re trying to build together—depend on it.

The Review

First, let me talk about the greatness of Greg Boudreaux as a narrator. He’s got one of those voices that just hit the spot (with everyone but Annabelle, but that’s just nitpicking about southern accents). I could probably listen to him speak with an English or a Scottish accent for days. Oh and the Russian accents *shiver*. I loved hearing Alexei’s speaking parts. Boudreaux had a way with differentiating between different characters with his voice. I didn’t get lost in conversation sections. I knew who was talking and how they were feeling in that moment. He made it very easy to get lost in this world and I highly recommend listening to his work. I already have his other three works in my to listen list.

Now on to the story!

In the Ruins picks up a few months after In the Wreckage ends. We see the MDF going undercover to continue their fight against a group of criminal organizations who are working together, instead of fighting each other, for power.

They utilize Jamie’s family wealth as the background for the teams covers. There are a lot of challenges that come with this. Jamie has to become a person he used to be and never wanted to be again; selfish, overbearing, unkind. Kyle experiences what Jamie’s life was like before the Marines and just how wealthy Jamie’s family is.

Also, Jamie and Kyle can publicly be together due to Kyle’s cover as Jamie’s arm candy. They can hold hands, they can kiss, they can sleep in the same bed without having to sneak out of the room early in the morning. These two men have chemistry that is out of this world. It’s obvious that that their relationship has continued to grow. The scenes with only two pair of them together, oh boy. Just turn the AC down and grab a fan, cause things just got hot. They are beyond intense.

Their mission was always at the forefront of their minds. Even if I lost track of what the mission actually was at some points. I liked that the action balanced out with the romance parts. This universe that Turner has created is amazing. I could see what Jamie’s apartment looked like. Then I could see 2285 London, the underground, the museum where the gala took place. The way she described the characters and the settings, it was opulent. That’s the only word that would do this world justice.

There were a few parts that dragged on for me and got a bit slow. I think it may be because I got so attached to Alexei. Will I continue this series? Most likely. I really enjoy the detail Turner puts into her novels and her characters. Should you read this? If you like sci-fi, military, steamy romances, yes. One hundred percent yes.

 

Vow of Protection by Brittany Cournoyer

3.5 Stars out of Five Stars

The Summary: Walker ~

Living a life of privilege isn’t always what it seems to be. While Walker has never wanted for anything material-wise, the two things he doesn’t have are his parents’ love and support. Walker tries his hardest to be the perfect son by allowing his father, the Governor, to dictate his life for him. All that changes when an awful day leads to a brutal night, causing Walker to fear for his safety and hire the only person he knows can protect him.

Beckett ~

Peace and an easy way of living, that’s all Beckett wants after serving twelve years in the army. Working for his Uncle Rusty’s bar as a doorman and occasional bouncer, the last thing the tattooed man with the take-no-crap attitude needs is to have to save the obnoxious kid who gives him attitude at the door. After ensuring that he’ll survive, and having a not so pleasant run-in with the guy’s parents, he leaves the hospital never expecting to see him again.

Walker and Beckett come from two different worlds. Where Beckett fought for his country and now enjoys the simple life, Walker works as his father’s campaign manager and lives a life of luxury. But when Walker’s safety is threatened, and he offers Beckett a job as his body guard, their lives became entwined and the two men begin to find that maybe they aren’t so different after all. Soon bickering and fighting turns to friendship and something…more. The only problem is, Walker’s straight… isn’t he? And can Beckett figure out who is behind the attacks in time to save Walker?

The Review

Walker has lived a life of privilege. His father is influential in the community and wealthy. Walker does what his father expects of him, not what he wishes to do in life. He ends up with a degree in political science, working his father’s campaign, and trying to not be a disappointment that his father seems to believe him to be. After a misfortunate night at a biker bar, Walker gets the tar beaten out of him and the bouncer, Beckett, has to save and get him to the hospital.

Beckett is nothing like Walker. He’s served time in the military, suffers from PTSD, and doesn’t have to have the finer things in life. For example, his car. It gets him where he needs to go and it’s reliable. It may not be the prettiest car on the lot but he doesn’t need anything fancy.

Walker has had several threats to his safety and decides to hire Beckett to be his bodyguard. As more threats come to life, Walker and Beckett start to enjoy each other’s company, even through all the pet peeves and button pushing that they both seemed fond of doing.

The threatening behavior started with slashed tires and grew into arson, and other life threatening actions. There were times that I felt like Beckett and Carter were ten steps behind and we not the greatest body guards. There were some basic safety measures that were not enforced. I didn’t particularly enjoy the resolution of this one either. I feel like it got rushed in the last thirty pages or so when the reveal could have been handled differently. It felt anticlimactic and that there needed to be more to explain the motivations.

I will fully admit to the fact that the romance between Walker and Beckett was exquisite. That first anger filled kiss *fans self* that was something else. I was waiting for the kiss and was not let down. At all. They went slow for Walker as he discovered what he liked and wanted while he was with Beckett.

All in all, this was a decent read. I may give other books by Cournoyer a chance later on to see if I might like her other series. I’m not the biggest fan of First Person POV story-telling and I think that may have influenced a lot of my opinion the slightest bit.

*TRIGGER WARNINGS* – Past drug use, rape and war time flashbacks are mentioned in this book.

Heroes for Ghosts by Jackie North

40531011

4.5 out of 5 stars!

The Summary: Soulmates across time. A sacrifice that could keep them apart forever.

In present day, near the village of Ornes, France, Devon works on his master’s thesis in history as he fantasizes about meeting a WWI American Doughboy.

In 1916, during the Battle of Ornes, Stanley is a young soldier facing the horrors of the battlefield.

Mourning the death of his friends from enemy fire, Stanley volunteers to bring the message for retreat so he can save everyone else in his battalion. While on his mission, mustard gas surrounds Stanley and though he thinks he is dying, he finds himself in a peaceful green meadow where he literally trips over Devon.

Devon doesn’t believe Stanley is who he says he is, a soldier from WWI. But a powerful attraction grows between them, and if Stanley is truly a visitor from the past, then he is Devon’s dream come true. The problem is, Stanley’s soul wants to finish his mission, and time keeps yanking him back to relive his fateful last morning over and over, even as his heart and body long to stay with Devon.

Will Stanley have to choose between Devon and saving his battalion? Will time betray their love, leaving each alone?

The Review

So you know how I told you guys that I was going to go back and read book one in the Love Across Time series by Jackie North? Well I did and oh my gosh, ya’ll. I’m a huge war history buff. I ended up taking a lot of classes in university and my ultimate goal after I get my Masters in Public History is to get a spot at the WWII Museum in New Orleans. I need you guys to know that research went into this novel. The weapons, the uniform, the locations, the trench warfare was all research and that made my historian heart all giddy with excitement. That tells me how much Jackie North cares about what she writes. She didn’t just fancy it up and hope for the best.

To the main review and away from my rambling …

It’s 1916 during World War I when we meet Stanley. He’s just lost his best friends to and he’s taken on a suicide mission in order to get the full retreat orders. Stanley doesn’t come close to getting the other half of the orders. Instead of dying, he wakes up in the present day location. The battlefield he had just been choking on mustard gas at was now a cemetery/memorial site.

Devon is writing his thesis on the effect that weather had on the 44th Battalion. He’s staying in the cottage at the cemetery/memorial site. He’s been living a pretty lonely life since he started working on his thesis. People don’t understand his excitement or find him boring. It broke my heart, because a lot of grad students go through this exact thing.

Devon was out walking the trenches when Stanley literal trips over him. Devon can’t believe that Stanley traveled through time. Both men feel an immediate attraction to each other, but in Stanley’s time, this was acceptable. Devon shies away from coming on too strong and settled for taking care of Stanley, and being there for him whenever needed.

We learn that Stanley has many regrets from the day he died. If he would have done certain things, people could have made it out.

I was shocked when he went back in time to the war. I knew it was going to happen (because I read book 2 before book 1). I just wasn’t prepared for how much it broke my heart. It hurt knowing that Stanley was going back to those conditions and he wasn’t going to make it out. Then I hurt for Devon, because he lost the one person who seemed to get him as a person.

There are things Stanley has to fix though and he’s not giving up saving his battalion, no matter how much his heart wants to stay in the present with Devon. I swear this was going to end differently and I was going to throw my iPad across the room in despair.

The way they were with each other, gosh, it was just beautifully written. It made me want that sweetness in my life. It made me believe that there is that possibility in the world. It was a gentle, drawn out romance that left me feeling hopeful and happy when I was finished reading.

This is definitely a book I will keep on my bookshelf and go back to time and time again. This was beautifully written and I’m so glad that I found this series. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series!

Tight Quarters by Annabeth Albert

39675783

Five out of Five Stars

The Summary: Petty Officer Bacon, a navy SEAL and ace sharpshooter, has been on the front lines of more than his fair share of dangerous ops. Yet when a minor injury relegates him to the beta team, he’s tasked with what may be his riskiest assignment yet: the silver fox journalist he’s babysitting is the hottest, most charismatic man he’s ever encountered.

Award-winning journalist Spencer Bryant may have been named one of Pride magazine’s most eligible bachelors of the year, but he’s not looking to change his relationship status. He’s a consummate professional who won’t risk his ethics or impeccable reputation by getting involved with a source. Even a sexy-as-hell military man. But while Spencer can resist his physical attraction to Bacon, he has less control over his emotions—especially when the mission goes sideways and the two men are trapped alone.

Getting out of the jungle alive turns out to be easy compared to facing the truth about their feelings for one another back in the real world. And whether or not they can build a future is a different story altogether.

 

The Review

Tight Quarters is book six in the Out of Uniform Series by Annabeth Albert. Bacon, a SEAL, gets tasked with watching a reporter that is embedding with the team for a story. Spencer Bryant is not what Bacon expected. He may be a little bit older, but he keeps in shape, he’s sharp and he faces the obstacles put to him head on and surprises everyone.

I think what appealed to me most about this book was the fact that there was the push and pull of having to deal with the secrecy of military work and the transparency of journalism. This was something Bacon and Spencer have to come to terms with both on a professional and a personal level. Being able to see them navigate this combine with learning more and more about what each other wants with their relationship both gutted me and left me warm with hope.

When things got tough, neither man backed down. It may have taken them a little bit longer to figure things out and they faced some unnecessary heartache but that made their story that much better.

I loved how Bacon stood up to his friends and their homophobic language and jokes. It’s hard to be that person to tell your friends, cut that shit out. It isn’t right. But Bacon does it. He’s got a quiet confidence about him that I admire. He knows who he is, a pansexual man, and he working towards being open with his friends. It’s not often you see talk about demi, pan, ace characters in books. I’m one of those people who is fluid in how I identify but I see myself much like Bacon sees himself. It was probably one of the first times I had ever had a character I could relate to in this way.

Spencer, oh boy. What can I say about him other than I wish I had my own Spencer in my life? He had his faults, but the way he stopped to evaluate and move forward was what truly mattered. He cared for and took care of Bacon when he needed it the most.

The chemistry between Bacon and Spencer *fans self* was intense. The attraction, the build up, the subsequent scenes. Oh my. They were well written, timed and perfectly done. It didn’t feel gratuitous. It felt right.

I all around loved this book and I was hesitant about it. A seal and a reporter? That spells disaster. But because it was Annabeth Albert, I was like, this is going to be great. And it was! I’m definitely going through her back list of books to read everything I can get my hands on. When I’m able to get lost in a book and read it in one day, you know that it’s got to be good.
