Review – Save Your Love – Lex Valentine

SOL
Decades define a young man’s life as he goes from a virgin discovering his sexual orientation to a rock star fending off masses of lovestruck fans to a composer of Broadway musicals while an epic love for his best friend commands his heart, permeates his soul and flows through his music.

Jay Sparks lost his virginity and found his true sexual orientation at a rock festival on his eighteenth birthday. He also gave away his heart. Through the years, Jay’s love for his best friend and first lover Matt Langdon has never died. The one thing Jay has always known to be true was that he and Matt loved each other. Even when they were apart, Jay always felt Matt’s presence within him and beside him. When fate finally brings them back together, finding a way to blend their lives becomes a labor of love. Through their years together, the love they found at eighteen grows and matures but remains an eternal flame that burns unwavering in both their hearts.

Allyson’s Review

Save Your Love was short but a steamy read. I was completely awed at the everlasting love Matt and Jay had for each other. They complimented each other so well with complete and total acceptance.
Their friendship started at 14 and their relationship at 18 and was strong at 20 but even though they loved each truly whole heartedly they took their own paths so they could grow both as individuals and as a couple. I was truly impressed how strong their love was and the determination they had to support each other. This was truly a great, steamy, passionate read.

Out of this World Saturday – Altered Frequency – Joya Fields- Giveaway!

alteredfrequencyAfter losing her father and brother in the line of duty, Missy Prescott vows never to get involved with anyone who has a dangerous job. Blessed with a golden voice, she takes a job as a disc jockey with her own late-night lovelorn dedication show on a popular radio station in Baltimore.
Blake Decker has never had a family. He has come to count on the only family he knows—his brothers on the police force. He’s a one-night-stand kind of guy when it comes to relationships.
Betty McAllister, the caring woman who used to live in Missy’s apartment, is now a ghost. She refuses to cross over until Blake—whom she viewed as her own son—is happily in love. She thinks Missy is the perfect girl for him.
Missy and Blake need to keep each other at a distance as they work together to help Betty find a way to cross over. But when danger lurks, will Missy and Blake lose everything?

I (Tamara) give this one a solid 5 stars!

Excerpt:
A shadow moved from the other side of the hallway. Blake froze, and his fingers moved to his weapon. He blinked. Nothing there. He dug in his pocket for his keys and glanced at Missy’s doorway.
Betty—wearing her pink sweat suit and flamingo earrings—stood grinning at him. She winked, raised her hand, and then knocked three times on Missy’s door.
Blake’s mouth opened and then closed. Betty disappeared. He closed his eyes for a half a minute and then opened them when he heard Missy’s door open.
Missy stood in the doorway wearing the same clothes as earlier. A white T-shirt, a pair of jeans, and a simple necklace that hung between her breasts, spiraling the memory of her body to the forefront of his mind. He knew exactly how those curves felt under his hands and he craved the feel of them again.
“Hey. Thanks for stopping by the bookstore today.” Missy pocketed her hands in her jeans, pulling them down just enough for him to get a glimpse of her lower belly. He swallowed in order to concentrate.
“You—you should look out your peephole before you open your door.” There. He’d be the concerned policeman who lived across the hall. But how the hell had Betty…no, it couldn’t have been Betty. What was going on?
Missy frowned. “You feeling all right?”
“Yeah. Of course.”
“’Cause I did look out my peephole and I saw you.” She tilted her head. “I sort of thought it was okay to open up since it was my neighbor, the cop.”
How had he gotten in front of her door? He’d been several feet away when Betty…when…. Oh shit. He really needed that beer now. Time for a change of subject. He’d process the other stuff later.

Review – Alien Embrace – Tracey St John

When I read the blurb of this one I just had to read it because it looked really interesting.
Amelia Ryan has been degraded on Earth. She has been taken against her will by some really sick men. Earth has become a planet that I would never want to be on. Women are treated like crap and if you are raped it’s your fault. Sex is prohibited without marriage and even then it is considered wrong. The only thing that Amelia has is her painting. She is invited to Plasius to do some painting for them. It is there she meets a clan of men.
Rajhir, Flenick, and Breft are a three men clan looking for a woman to complete them. She will be cherished and always come first. They know that Amelia is the woman for them and they will do anything they can to make her join them.
Earth has become a very bad place, that I would hate to live. Amelia is a woman that really needs the love of a man to show her that she did no wrong and when these men come into her life they are what she needs. I loved this story and yes at times it was a little too much on the rape and abuse that one woman had to suffer. It took the love of these aliens to prove to her that she was worthy and it wasn’t her fault. Yes it had tons of sex in it, but I believe that was part of what made the story so enjoyable. The author has a wonderful imagination and knows how to use it. It made a trip to this planet sound titillating and exciting. Although, I wouldn’t feel comfortable.

Mild BDSM including captive/forced seduction, anal play/intercourse, bondage, Dom/sub play, homoerotic situations (m/m), and multiple sexual partners (m/f/m/m).
