Scary ( Twirled World Ink 3) by J. M. Dabney

Title : Scary                          Word Count:196 pgs

Genre: Gay Biker Romance

Blurb:Welcome to Twirled World Ink where the crazies run the asylum.

Gene Sheridan earned the appropriate nickname when Legend Gib Phelps employed him at Twirled World Ink—Scary. No one made it out of his old neighborhood without scars both mental and physical. At one time, Scary thought he had a chance that is until his ex-boyfriend discovered slumming with someone like him wasn’t worth his trust fund. No-strings hookups became his go-to when he needed to relieve some tension. Co-owning a bar called Brawlers with his best friend, Tank, made it easy to find a body to use for the night. If not happy he was content with his life, but one man made content seem like such a terrible thing.

Elijah Vaughn worried about everything. His life was put on hold at eighteen when his mostly-absent parents died on one of their many adventures leaving him to raise his six-year-old brother, Brody. He’d never had anything or anyone that was just his. When Brody met a tattoo artist named Trouble, Elijah hadn’t realized how much it would change his life too. He met a huge man named Scary and how the man made him feel terrified him.

Tank Davis lost his voice the night he was attacked and had this throat slit ear-to-ear. It kept him in a world of silence. Silent and intimidating, he scared off more men than he drew to him. His best friend Scary and him made a life for themselves in small town Georgia with their bar Brawlers. Most night everyone could find him working security at the door. Scary called in a favor, and Tank met the one man he couldn’t resist, proper and upstanding Elijah Vaughn.

Can one man accept that there’s not one perfect man for him, but two damaged souls who need him to be whole?

Author’s Note: Although this is part of a series each book is stand alone and every book deals with a separate couple.
My Review:  Gene ‘Scary’ Sheridan is the big bad wolf out of all the Twirled Crew. He is mean as hell and he doesn’t care who knows it. From the very first moment he met Brody’s brother Elijah, he’s been unsettled. He has come across prissy clean cut men like Elijah before and nothing good has ever come from it. Elijah has been very attracted to Scary from the first moment, but he knows Scary hates him. At first he wasn’t sure about all these tattooed bikers in Brody’s life, but he now realize how genuine and loyal they are. Elijah feels comfortable being around them, because what you see is what you get. He yearns for the type of relationship that his brother has with Trouble. Elijah is not sure what he wants from Scary, he just wished it didn’t hurt so much to be ignored by him.

Princess has bragged about all of her ‘uncles’ to Elijah, especially Scary and his silent best friend Tank. After a horrible event that left Tank scarred, he has been unable to speak ever since. Most of the crew talks to Tank in ASL. When Tank lays eyes on Elijah for the first time,he is definitely smitten by the pretty little man. Elijah allows Tank to feel something he hasn’t felt in forever. Tank finds his protective instincts coming out with Elijah. He wants him.

When Brody notices the weird dynamic between the three men at one of Scary’s famous sleepover, he corners his brother. Brody’s reality check puts a damper on Elijah’s feelings and it hurts to feel like he doesn’t belong. Elijah goes to find the bathroom and accidentally walk in on Scary pleasuring himself. He is about to back out of the room, when he is cornered by Tank at his back. Tank becomes the mastermind and gently nudges them in the right direction. Sparks fly between these three and the passion that unfolds is inevitable. Before they can even get anything started, Elijah gets scared and run away.  He is scandalized at his feelings for both Scary and Tank.

Tank and Scary are a little hesitant to pursue Elijah due to his respectable job as the mayor. However, their feelings quickly overshadow respectability and they decide to go after their ‘boy’. They approach Elijah with the concept of a threesome and he is stupefied , but he can’t deny his attraction for the two of them. They decide to start dating. It doesn’t take long for Elijah to be indoctrinated to the hardcore sex of these two tattooed bikers. They know Elijah is a delicate flower on the outside, but Scary’s aim is definitely to muss up all that perfectness and turn him into a dirty ‘boy’. 

They get a nice groove going, but insecurities pop up for Tank and he feels like a fifth wheel. Scary is there to soothe his best friend but he knows it has to come from Elijah. Elijah does his best to reassure Tank even though he is away on a business trip. Scary seeing that its not enough , plans for them to meet up at Elijah’s hotel. The flames are combustible when they meet up. Scary is undeniably dominant and aggressive , whereas Tank leads with quiet dominance that is almost gentle. Elijah feels like he might have found his fit with these two brash men. When they finally get to talking they realise that they all are a little insecure. They don’t feel like they are enough individually, but they are learning that together they will measure up equally.

Their lives become further embroiled when Elijah decides to start the adoption paperwork to foster a 12 year old girl who he catches breaking in his car. There is just something about Sophie that tugs at his heartstrings. Scary has dubbed her Juvie and the name is very fitting since she is a charming misunderstood juvenile delinquent. These three men can’t imagine their lives without Juvie.

Tank’s past comes back to haunt them when his ex boyfriend Ian, who disfigured him rolls into town. Ian starts messing with them and takes an interest into Elijah. The men toss Ian out of Brawlers when he decides to revisit his twisted attraction to Tank by kissing him. This brings up a host of feelings in Scary, the main ones being jealousy and his possessive tendencies. When Juvie calls to say  Elijah didn’t pick her up from school , they know something is wrong. Elijah is missing for 2 days before they get a clue. It’s one of Ian’s men Psycho , who gives them a lead. They are not sure if they can trust Psycho, but they don’t have a choice.Psycho, Tank, Scary and the rest of the Brawlers get Elijah back in one piece, just a bit bruised. It doesn’t end well for Ian and he certainly will not be missed. Psycho becomes Elijah’s personal bodyguard and is yet another addition to the Brawlers crazies.

Tank withdraws from his men, taking all of the blame on himself for Elijah getting hurt. Elijah and Scary ambushes Tank at his cabin, but its definitely Scary running the show. He is very dominant and shows Tank who is the boss. Tank needs this aggression from Scary. Scary possessed Tank’s body while Elijah watched. This is the first time for the trio to come together sexually. It was intense, brutal and oh so primal. These two rough and tumble bikers finally got the man to soothe their demons and a family with Juvie that they never hoped to have. Scary makes it official by proposing a commitment ceremony. The love amongst these three men is a beautiful thing. I give this my ratings of 5- bring out  the vibrators.

Sirius Wolves 1: Orion’s Circle by Victoria Sue

Title : Orion’s Circle                 Word Count :  53,731

Genre : Paranormal Gay Romance

Blurb : According to legend, when humankind is at its most desperate, the goddess Sirius will send three of the most powerful werewolf shifters ever created to save mankind. However, because they are so powerful, they will need a fourth to complete them, to calm them and help them reach their full potential.

Aden, a young were, has been his pack’s omega ever since, at the age of fifteen, he didn’t shift like everyone else. Caught, reviled, and tortured because of his empathic abilities, he knew on the night he was told to run as sport for the pack hunters that it would end in his death. What he didn’t know, however, was that on the same night he’d also meet the love of his life and a pathway to answers, because Aden is far more than just a pack omega.

What begins as a hunt soon becomes a new adventure as Aden discovers that he has not only one, but three destined mates, and his role as lover is far more than trivial. The fate of all humankind rests upon it.

My Review : This was definitely a remarkable feat for this author, to create a world so interesting and to spin and weave a werewolf story that has never been told. Usually, I can barely even tolerate threesomes because the plot gets so jumbled and oftentimes you can’t understand who says what. This was not the case here. Here we have a foursome, they are all  very distinctive and their voices echo throughout.

Aden, the omega is saved by a trio of alpha werewolves from his pack who has been torturing him and seem to be intent on killing him. The strongest of alphas  Blaze is the one we are introduced to first. He is the strength of their foursome, the one who makes the decisions. Darric is the sensualist, and Conner is the empath, the one who feels the most intense emotions. Aden feels the most comfortable with Conner,  but only because they can both ‘feel’ each other  really well. Aden is the heart, peace and comfort of their foursome. They need him so much more than he even understands.

Aden has a lot to learn from these three breathtakingly handsome men who he feels he is unworthy of having. Aden is definitely stunned when they tell him that they are his mates and that he completes their circle by being the psi and omega that they have long awaited for over 600 years. With their Orion’s Circle now complete,  they can all take on the weight of the world and begin reparations to humankind. 

All three men  lavished and pampered their newly found mate. The intimacy amongst the four of them was astounding. They were indeed a circle, there was no beginning and no end. Nobody was left out and they all loved and worked together in cohesion.

Their peace and tranquility is soon ripped asunder when Aden allows himself to be deceived by the entreaties of his former pack mates who he thought were friends. By the time his mate Blaze finds him, everything is a mess. Aden’s pack mates tries to take his manhood away by burning him with acid. Aden now feels insecure and believes he has nothing to offer his mates. A part of the Orion’s Circle ritual is that he needs to mount Blaze in order for their circle to be complete. To top it all off, Blaze has turned his back on Aden believing that he willingly left his mates. It is not  until Darric smells the truth on Aden, that things have a chance to be repaired. It was very emotional watching the foursome get back to the level of comfort that they were used to.

Their makeup sex was incredibly hot. They soon find out that their precious omega Aden is pregnant. They are all excited and they overwhelm their mate with all their pampering. Aden embraces it and relish in his newfound self confidence. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear. 

Favorite Quotes : 1. He saw Darric’s soft smile and heard the pleasure in his mind from all of them. “Breathe with me.” Aden dissolved under Darric’s calm words. He was ready for this. He felt more lube plastered around his tight hole as Blaze eased in slowly. Aden moved restlessly. His lips parted on a cry as pain flared suddenly in his ass.   Blaze, please. “Look at me Aden, keep looking at me.” Darric brushed small kisses on Aden’s lips, so gentle. He whimpered at the pain, but Darric was almost detaching him from it. Blaze stopped inching and held still. Aden thought he would split in two. There’s no way. He wrenched his eyes from Darric and looked at Blaze, ready to shout. Blaze was poised, completely still. Every tendon stood out on his neck from the effort of not moving. Harsh gasps left his lips, and his eyes were screwed tight shut. Blaze was barely hanging on by a thread. Aden was awestruck that this powerful man cared so much about his comfort to discipline himself like this. Taking a slow breath and keeping his eyes firmly fixed on Blaze, Aden finally relaxed and slowly moved, swinging his hips a little, inviting Blaze deeper. ( There is just something so breathtakingly perfect with this performance,  all of them moving in tandem with each other.)

2. Blaze’s eyes snapped open, and he slid in until his hips pressed against Aden’s. Aden melted as a wide smile shone across the man’s face—a smile he had put there. Aden arched as Darric’s teeth found his nipple, and the gentle tug took his focus from the discomfort. Blaze inched again, and Conner tongued his cock. Pain and pleasure melded into one.   Darric caught his mouth and Aden was lost. It was impossible to feel this good. Long swipes from Conner’s tongue had Aden ready to shoot again in seconds. Darric swallowed every warning moan, and Blaze slid out, then back in, time and time again until Aden was delirious with need. His mind swirled with unnamed emotions as his whole body tightened and thundered towards orgasm. Just as he reached the pinnacle of the hill, Conner pushed down and deep throated him. And that was what it took to launch him off the cliff. He barely heard Blaze shout with his own release. ( Greatttt teamwork  😉.)

Title :  More ( Book 1)             Word Count : 110,505

Genre : Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb : For fifteen years Luke Moore has lived by three rules: stay off his father’s radar, never spend more than a single night with any man, and never fall in love again. But one night of explosive sex and two men he can’t get out of his head have Luke breaking every one of his rules. Richard and Matthew push him past all his boundaries—both sexually and personally—and now he’s no longer hiding from his senator father. He’s taking him on. And he isn’t just falling for one man. He’s falling for two. If you’re going to break the rules, might as well break them big.

But Luke’s father has his reasons for hating how his son lives, and he’ll do whatever he can and use all his power to keep Luke away from Richard and Matthew.

Can this threesome find a way to make their unconventional relationship last with the world around them trying to pull them apart? And will Luke be able to keep breaking his rules for Richard and Matthew, or will he head back to his old way of life just when his new lovers want to pull him closer.

My Review : Three men, all of them strangers to each other meet at a sex club called Haven. Richard is the dominant one and  he is a giant of a man. Luke is looking for something in particular,  he wants to be tied up. Matthew is the youngest and he is a sexy little man. All of them except for Matthew is adamant about their time together being a one time deal. Matthew is oh so exuberant and boy can he kiss. He makes Luke yearn for that intimacy of kissing and sees what he has been missing.  Luke gets so excited just watching Richard behind Matthew, their size difference does something for him. Richard is driving the whole show and it is obvious he knows what he’s doing when he ties Luke to the bed. Richard has this chivalrous quality to him that allows them all to feel safe. Richard proves his power and dominance to them all and he brings Luke to the pinnacle by demanding his subjugation.

 It soon becomes clear that Luke is very afraid of the intimacy he feels while kissing these two completely different men. It doesn’t take long for him to be out the door once they all got off. He can’t seem to get the two sexy men out of his head. Luke can’t seem to outrun his demons and before he knows it , he’s back at the Haven. Ready to play hard and be the aggressor. He goes with the intention of finding someone new to play with,  but once he sees Matthew being approached by another couple, there is a twinge in his heart that he doesn’t understand. Richard makes the decision for them , when he collects them and they head to the room for a beautiful, fun filled night of passion. Luke finds himself exploring more intimate acts with these two. He is a bit pissed off at the end of the night when Richard sneaks off without saying goodbye.

They say the third time is the charm, and I do believe that Luke would agree, because I think that is when he realized how invested he was in these two wonderful men. He could not get them out of his mind and they made him want to conquer his demons and stop running. Richard is the one who comes up with the idea to make their threesome relationship permanent.  He also proposed that they both move in with him. At first, Luke is ready to bolt especially when he thinks about the danger he might place them in if his homophobic father found out about his unconventional relationship .

This trio is hot as hell and they definitely click, but outside of the bedroom, navigating their relationship can become problematic.  Richard is a bigwig businessman and there is a lot at stake to lose if people object to his lifestyle.  Luke’s  father is a politician and he tries with all his might to keep his life private and away from his father’s scrutiny . Matthew is young and insecure in many ways, he is very enthusiastic with his two lovers , but he still questions where and how he fit into their lives. He over compensates by doing a lot of the household chores and falls into the stereotypical ‘wife’ role.

 Their relationship is truly tested when Luke’s father tries to force him to play by his rules . He attempts to ruin them by threatening Richard’s business prospects and showing him the long reach of a politician’s arm. They stand strong and steadfast,  but things get a little shaky when Luke decides to protect his men by going up against his father by wearing a wire for the FBI. Their love endured and saw them through the stressful times. I really enjoyed watching these three men plod through and building a bond strong enough to withstand the hardships of a threesome. I can’t wait to read the second installment of this series. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear.

Kiss Me by Scarlet Blackwell

Title : Kiss Me                Word Count : 73,817

Genre : Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb : Dexter is a rent boy falling for his new client. Logan is a homicide cop falling for his rent boy. Now madly in love, Logan discovers Dexter is dangerously in thrall to a gangster whose clutches he can’t escape. When the gangster finds out about the two of them, he targets Dexter’s friend in revenge. The quickest answer is a safe house, but how long will it be safe?

My Review : There are some relationships that are just destined to fail from the very beginning. From the moment Dexter Anderson first met Logan Maden he knew he was in trouble. Dexter has made his living and become somewhat successful by being a high class prostitute. He has his own website and a nice clean hotel room he rents from his friend Michael. Logan is a cop, a detective in fact who seems to have intimacy issues. Dexter is very wary at first, having this illicit illegal arrangement with an officer of the law. 

Dexter soon realized that Logan is everything that he could have wanted and then some. There is a certain innocence and naiveté surrounding Logan and this is endearing to Dexter. Dexter is very attracted to Logan, more than he’s ever been to any of his customers. He finds himself wanting things from Logan, that someone in his profession has no hope at attaining. Logan is very hesitant and distant in their interactions,  but after a few months he starts to open up. Dexter is weak and always so turned on with Logan that he ends up breaking one of his cardinal rules, no kissing. The first time they kiss , Dexter feels himself plunging into the unknown. He tries to keep himself aloof and jaded, but Logan’s kisses rejuvenates a part of him  that has been dormant.

Logan starts pushing for a relationship  and Dexter keeps on pulling back. He is afraid that his life of prostitution will sully Logan’s innocence. Also, there are unsavoury characters in his life that promises to hurt the people who Dexter loves the most. Dexter’s friends beg him to seek help from Logan when Ivan a known hit man continuously hurts him physically. He doesn’t heed the warnings and then it becomes too late.

A tragic story unfolds when Ivan goes to Dexter’s house in a jealous rage and Ivan kills Ennis, his best friend’s fiancé. It is such a heartwrenching set of events and  Dexter shoulders the blame, as well as he should after so many repeated warnings. His best friend Daron who is out of his mind with grief blames him. Logan does some finger pointing of his own, while tampering with evidence so that Ivan can be put away for life. Logan knows that a person’s lifestyle plays a big part in how they are seen by the jury. He is trying to make sure that Dexter’s prostitution doesn’t cause any further repercussions. 

After a hit is put out on Dexter and Daron, they are moved to a safe house. Logan becomes embroiled in the case after he kills a dirty cop to protect  Dexter. His innocence is under the microscope and everybody’s life is turned upside down with no hope of a happy ending. The evidence is looking very dismal for Logan’s  plight when the trial starts. He becomes very bitter when he is left standing by himself with harsh accusations being thrown at his character. Logan starts doubting their love and outright blames Dexter for the whole mess.

Some relationships are too toxic to survive. So many lives have been irrevocably changed and there is no coming back from certain actions. Logan ended up killing Ivan , because of his love for Dexter. Is it really love though, when it destroys someone so completely? Logan ended up in prison and Dexter did a stint  in a mental institution. 

 It’s twelve years after the fact and everyone is still standing like stagnant putrid water. Daron is still grieving Ennis, Dexter hasn’t had the will to move on with his life or become attached to anyone. He is a shell of his former self. When Daron reveals to Dexter that Logan is getting out, he has a bit of a downward spiral. So much loneliness,  desolation and regrets make for a bittersweet reunion for the two men. They have a lot of soul deep purging of anguish and broken dreams that they need to get out. They have a happily ever after. 

I’m not sure how to feel about this one, because I don’t believe that love can conquer all. As bad as I feel for Dexter, I really do believe that he was at the root of all this chaos which ensued and reigned over so many lives.  I think that the others payed a far higher price for his mistakes and to me that is not forgivable. I give this my ratings of 4 – because there are truly flawed characters in real life and even though I don’t believe in their everlasting love,  it’s enough that they believe. 

Guards of Folsom 2: Tag Team by SJD Peterson

Title : Tag Team               Word Count : 71,978

Genre : Contemporary Gay Romance

Blurb : Following the death of their sub, the former owners of the Guards of Folsom, Robert “Bobby” Alcott and Rig Beckworth, were left to pick up the pieces as best they could. After seven years, these two Doms are ready to move on and find the boy who will complete them. Their painful past comes crashing back when they meet Mason Howard, a submissive who just weeks ago lost his Doms in a car accident.

Reeling from overwhelming grief that’s complicated by a severe social anxiety disorder, Mason can barely leave his home. When Rig and Bobby find him, he’s hit rock bottom, believing life is no longer worth living. Bobby and Rig set out to prove the younger man wrong. Fate has brought the three men together, but they’ll have to face the pain of fear and loss head-on before they can all truly live again.

My Review : There is one word that comes to mind when we first meet Mason and that’s Fragile. After being with both his Doms for twelve years, they’re suddenly taken from him in a car crash. Mason is adrift on a sea of loneliness and heartbreak. He is withering away in his little house by the beach from grief and his social anxiety issues. 

When he meets vacationers Bobby and Rig, a couple of Doms, Mason is in a really dark place. He is laying drunk on his porch, trying to bolster his courage to commit suicide. Bobby and Rig come to the rescue of this desperate young man. They stay with him and even call in  reinforcements in the form of another Dom, Max who is a shrink. They all help Mason to get to a place where even though he is grieving,  he is taking it one step at a time , living each day as it comes.

Bobby and Rig are very patient with Mason. They form a bond with him that they have never had since they lost their sub seven years ago. Mason fills a hole in their life , he has renewed their spirits and their need to nurture a sub. But is Mason ready to take that plunge again? Mason is still dreaming about his Doms and feels guilty for the growing sexual tension. When Mason hurts his knee accidentally while rough housing with Rig, Rig feels personally responsible for his care and go full on in papa bear mode.

Things get pretty steamy when Mason sneaks off to masturbate in the shower to relieve some tension. He is almost at the pinnacle, when Rig barges in to help him because of his injury. Bobby hears the commotion and comes running, just in time to see their big , sticky problem. Bobby and Rig are filled with lust for the young man that has been playing havoc with their senses. Mason can’t resist Rig and makes the first move. They had one of the steamiest showers ever with all three of them getting exactly what they needed. Mason is still not sure he is ready to go into sub mode or use the honorific Sir, but he can’t deny  the chemistry blossoming with the Doms. 

In my opinion,  I felt as if Mason had a stronger more sexual relationship with Rig whereas Bobby was more his haven , a big teddy bear to shield him from any storm. I still think something was missing from their relationship,  but I think that worked to make it more realistic,  because it shows that it takes time to get over grief of a loved one. It is actually a conversation with Ty, one of the subs, that gives Mason closure. Ty helped him to see that he didn’t have to let go of his former Doms in order to welcome and accept his new Doms in his heart. Rig and Bobby tag teamed Mason’s  heart from the very beginning and that allowed him to give his total submission once again to two special Doms. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear. 

Favorite Quotes : 1. The hard cock against Mason’s stomach twitched, and as if on cue, Bobby slowly went to his knees and nudged Mason out of the way but still held him close by wrapping his arm around Mason’s thighs. With his other hand, Bobby carefully pulled at the waistband of Rig’s shorts, exposing his very large, very hard cock. Bobby then pushed his own shorts down just enough to grasp his length in a fist and stroked himself as he took Rig into his mouth.(  I can picture Mason watching these two Doms being so loving towards each other. Soo sexy.)

Rig and Bobby didn’t exclude Mason from their pleasure. Both men held him close, allowed him into their intimacy. Rig grasped his erection with one hand, guiding it slowly in and out of Bobby’s mouth as the fingers of his other hand tangled in Mason’s hair and held his head against Rig’s shoulder. Bobby continued to stroke himself while he massaged and kneaded the flesh of Mason’s thighs, ass, and lower back. Mason couldn’t remember the last time he’d seen or felt anything so beautiful. Once again, Mason was struck dumb by how these two men had come into his life, put his needs above all other things, and asked for nothing in return.( So very erotic and intimate  watching these three men.)

Warrior Camp 2: Love’s Indecision by Flynn Eire

Title : Love’s Indecision                 Word Count : 31,192

Genre : Paranormal Gay Romance

Blurb : Matteo Dominguez spent centuries performing his duty with honor and dedication, never letting anything sway him from his responsibilities. When Nate Hathus comes into his life as a pre-transition warrior, everything Matteo has worked for is put into jeopardy. Matteo desires Nate more than he does anything in his life, even his duties as a warrior instructor.

When Nate seduces Matteo, he’s helpless to stop the man, his heart and libido guiding him down a path he’s afraid may end in his destruction. Nate has yet to go through his transition and the feelings he has now may not be those he has afterwards. Matteo agrees to see where things lead despite Nate’s assurance that he will still care for Matteo no matter what.

But when Nate’s transition doesn’t go as planned, Matteo is faced with a terrible decision. Does he save Nate’s life and risk having a mate who might not want him? Or should he risk losing the only man he’s ever loved?

My Review : Matteo,  the centuries old vampire warrior has been  in love with Nate, the pre-transition vampire student for some time. He has watched him from afar and tried to resist tempation. This plan goes all to hell when the precocious Nate decides to approach and bombard Matteo while he is naked in the shower. There is not much that can be done to stave off a nymph set on seduction when Matteo’s resolve is already severely tested. Matteo gives in and they both have splendid orgasms as soon as they touch. Matteo stands strong and stops short of giving Nate the mating bite. He explains to Nate that it was a mistake that cannot be allowed to happen  again. Nate flees with tears streaming down his face. He can’t believe the man he loves has rejected him.

After a few days of walking around like a zombie, Matteo’s best friend Dimitri tackles him about the tension with Nate. Dimitri and his mate Alexander urges Matteo not to make the same mistakes that caused them so much emotional turmoil when they got together. Matteo decides to try to talk to Nate so that they can figure things out, but he gets sidetracked by his duties when Lance,  the troublemaker from book 1 goes into his transition on his 25th birthday. He spends the whole night trying to help Lance through his difficult time and finally crashes once Lance has been through the worst.

Once he is rested , he sets out looking for Nate in his dorm that he shares with Lance. On  his way there, he hears Nate screaming and he is just in time to pull Lance off before he rapes Nate. Matteo is beyond angry and he challenges Lance, a challenge he will definitely win. The winner of these warrior challenges has the right to violate and demean the loser sexually in front of all the Warriors.  So said , so done, Matteo decides to fuck Lance into submission and teach him a lesson. This scene was really hot and truly worthy of voyeurustic heaven. It was only after finishing, that he noticed how much Lance enjoyed himself and Nate was just in time to see the impressive finale. Nate runs away hurt and upset by what he sees as a betrayal. As much as Matteo wants to be upset at Lance, he realized that maybe everyone has misconstrued Lance’s attitude.  He sees Lance for the lonely , misguided little boy that he is on the inside. Matteo forgives Lance and understands that it is a possibility that he didn’t truly want to hurt Nate, but rather that he was confused with all the tumultuous emotions colliding in his new post-trans body.

Another crisis pops up when he goes looking for Nate; Nate has started his transformation early. Nate is scared and Matteo tries to soothe him as best as he can. He stays with him throughout it all and when Nate’s humongous post trans body is revealed, he begs Matteo to claim him as his mate. Although Matteo thinks this is a bad idea , he does it to prove how much he loves Nate. Soon afterwards, Nate delivers his rejection of Matteo by telling him he wants to explore with other guys sexually . Matteo is devastated by this turn of events. It takes him a few days of licking his wounds before he realizes that rather than take Nate’s words as rejection, maybe he can join his mate in exploration. 

Nate and Matteo decides to add a third to play with. They try Rune, but when they are done they realize that Rune is too much into pain for their liking and they aren’t interested in the D/s lifestyle. This actually strengthens their bond with each other , helping them to appreciate their love for each other.  It so happens that Lance offers himself for them to play with and this created a super sexy scene for all involved. Ooh la la, to be a fly on that wall😉. Matteo and Nate were very considerate of Lance’s needs, while at the same time they had their own private moment connecting as only true mates can. I guess it’s true that the couple that plays together , stays together. I see longevity in this couple’s future. I give this my ratings of 4 – lose the underwear. 

Favorite Quotes : 1. No, we just want to rim your hole together,” Nate snickered before leaning over and licking Lance’s ass. “He tastes different than you do, Matteo.” “Let me taste,” I purred as I leaned forward and slid my tongue into Nate’s mouth. When we moved apart, we moved down to Lance’s ass and both started to lick his hole. “Oh fuck, you guys are going to kill me,” Lance moaned as we continued to open up his ass with our tongues. “Please, fuck me already!” (Hot, hot, hot, 😉 do try this at home.)

Special Delivery, Book 1

Sam Keller knows he’ll never find the excitement he craves in Middleton, Iowa—not while he’s busting his ass in nursing school and paying rent by slaving away in a pharmacy stockroom.

Then Sam meets Mitch Tedsoe, an independent, long-haul trucker who makes a delivery to a shop across the alley. Innocent flirting quickly leads to a fling, and when Mitch offers to take him on a road trip west, Sam jumps at the chance for adventure.

For better or for worse, Sam grapples with the meaning of friendship, letting go, growing up—even the meaning of love—because no matter how far he travels, eventually all roads lead home.

Warning: This story contains trucker fantasies, threesomes and kinky consensual sex.

My Review : Sam is shy, a little naive and a whole lot of kinky. He first meets Mitch outside the pharmacy his family owns in small town Iowa. Mitch is everything he ever wanted in a man . He is definitely something out of a fantasy, a trucker fantasy at that. Mitch is intrigued by this little ray of sunshine and he propositions Sam for a roll in the back of his semi. He is a long haul trucker who knows exactly what to do with a sexy little package like Sam. Sam is hesitant at first but he knows this is a once in a life time opportunity.  Mitch rocks Sam’s world and tilt it on  it’s axis. Their time together is explosive and it’s nothing like Sam had ever experienced in the fumbling hookups that he has in dirty bathrooms with the straight guys who exploits him. 

Sam is a very complex character though, because he doesn’t really see himself as a victim. He actually likes being exploited and degraded by these straight guys. He feels a sense of power in these acts of degradation. Mitch realizes he has found a kindred spirit and he wants to foster their bond, but he is going to have to trust himself while helping Sam to own this slutty part of his nature. Sam follows his heart and decides to leave his life behind and run away with Mitch who is a virtual stranger. He feels comfortable with Mitch on one level,  but this also makes him feel awkward because he is ashamed of being a little slut for Mitch.

Mitch opens up a whole new world of play and BDSM for Sam. Mitch is scared of pushing Sam to his limits because he has had a previous bad experience.  Sam needs Mitch’s guidance in this new foray of his sexual journey. Mitch introduces toys and threesomes to Sam who takes to it like a moth to a flame. Although Mitch tries hard to prod Sam gently in the right direction , Sam is easily overwhelmed. Despite all this, Sam let’s Mitch know that he trusts his judgement and he wants Mitch to force his inner sluttiness out and let him feel free in embracing all his dirty little deeds.

Their relationship becomes volatile when they start having really intense feelings for each other. They are both  unsure of what they are feeling towards each other and this causes sparks to fly, not necessarily in a good way. They are both vulnerable as they are walking into uncharted territory. Mitch has tried to turn a new leaf by changing his life over the last couple years from picking up prostitutes at truck stops . His relationship with Sam is similar,  but ultimately different because of the feelings he has experienced with his sweet Sunshine. Other truckers who knew Mitch’s character cast aspersions on their relationship.  This heightens Sam’s self doubts and causes him to have recriminations about being slutty with Mitch. Sam questions if it’s even possible to have  something long term with his trucker or is it just a pipe dream. Sam yearns for Mitch to clarify their relationship status. However, he doesn’t ask out of fear of losing the easy camaraderie that they have.

They start to tread on a slippery slope when they try to introduce a third in their sexual endeavors.  They meet up with Randy who is Mitch’s ex fuck buddy/ rival/best friend and everything kinda goes south. There is a lot of history between Randy and Mitch, there is some residual hurt feelings, tension but most of all sexual attraction. They are not exactly sure what they mean to each other,  but one thing is for sure, they mix like oil and water. Randy makes it clear that he wants Mitch’s Sunshine and Sam albeit a little bit jealous, wants to explore the possibilities with Randy. Mitch gets off on watching,  and he can’t wait to see the fireworks between Randy and Sam.

Their threesome is filled with explorations involving spreaders, a sex swing, toys and a hot double penetration of Mitch and Randy in Sam’s ass. Most importantly, their threesome made reparations to a friendship that had been torn apart and filled with tension. Their threesome leveled the emotional playing field, helping everyone to know where they stand with each other.  Their threesome was exceedingly hot, raunchy and primitive and it was all about acknowledgement and acceptance of their kink.

Alas, all good things must come to an end. After they finished their cross country trip, Sam decided to go back home and tie up some loose ends, despite wanting to stay forever with Mitch.  It is a bittersweet moment and they make sweet passionate love to each other. I guess the saying is true that absence makes the heart grows fonder. Sam realized that he is truly in love with Mitch, but he is still fearful of what the future holds. It takes a kick in the ass from Randy to get them back on the straight and narrow. After all is said and done, Mitch got his Sunshine and Sam gave Mitch the home he has been  searching for,  because for Mitch home is not a place, but rather where the heart lives. I give this my ratings of 5 – bring out the vibrators. I can’t wait to read Randy’s story.

Favorite Quotes : 1. “Then I would lick it, Sam. I would lick your hot little hole until you were pushing back against me, same as in the trailer, and then, then, baby, I would spread you wider and push my tongue inside you. Way in, honey. Maybe you didn’t know, but my lips were sucking at your pucker the other day, and I licked you as high up as I could. I licked you and fucked you, sweet thing, until you were mush, and then I listened to you sing same as right now. Only a lot, lot louder.”(Ooh la la, If you’ve never had phone sex with lots of dirty talk , you are missing out😉.)

2. “I wanted to fuck you when I woke up. I wanted to turn you over and lick you, and eat you out, and I wanted to fuck your mouth.” ( Sex shouldn’t be prim and proper. This is what sex is all about, getting down and dirty. )

3.Mitch had eaten Sam out before, but not while someone else held him open, not while Sam leaned over someone else’s knees, spreading on command. Mitch had never been this slow, this maddening, as he ran his tongue up and down him, sometimes sliding over to lick Randy’s fingers too. Randy pulled Sam tauter, forcing him open almost to the point of pain, and then Mitch entered him, slick and soft and wet, and Sam groaned and opened even farther, surrendering to them. Randy was harsher than Mitch. Randy enjoyed talking, and while Mitch tongue-fucked him, Randy talked about Sam’s hole, and how he wanted to fuck it, and how he admired the way he clenched, how good Sam looked. He talked about the toys he’d use on him, about how he’d tie him down on a bench, spread his legs wide and spank him with a paddle with a dildo rammed deep inside him, fucking him with every blow. His words were sharp and hard, and some of them were scary and more than Sam wanted. But they were just words, he realized. That was Randy. He fucked your head as much as your body. He found the edges in your mind and tried to send you over them. ( They couldn’t have found a better third than Randy. He is raunchy and wild and has no sense of boundaries. Randy is the perfect person to push them both to their limits.)
