When opposites attract, it’s not just the team that’s in for a shake-up.


When a stipulation in his father’s will throws Mark back into a family that disowned him, he has only two things on his mind; buying his way out of contractual obligations and running in the opposite direction as fast as he can. When neither option pans out, he finds he is now a one third owner of the struggling Arizona Raptors hockey team, and that is just about the worst thing he could have happened to him. Not only does he hate hockey, but the Raptors are a bottom-of-the-league team, rife with jealousies and anger in a locker room that only knows self-pity. How is he supposed to help turn things around when the only way to start fixing things is to form an alliance with the estranged siblings he’d run from fifteen years earlier?


Then there’s Rowen Carmichael, a stubborn, opinionated, irritating man with superiority issues and questionable taste in music. Butting heads with Rowen, who he’d never even wanted to hire in the first place, is one thing, but there is no way in hell that he will allow the growing attraction to the new coach become anything more. Until with everything on the line, he has to make decisions that will change his life forever.


After years of collegiate coaching, Rowen is given an offer that he simply can’t refuse, although perhaps he should. When he’s presented with the chance to take one of the worst teams in the league and mold them into a future cup contender, the challenge is just too alluring to pass up. He leaves his beloved Ontario behind and moves west to the arid city of Tucson where he is faced with a broken team, shoddy management, and players overflowing with resentment and bigotry.


Never in his twenty years of hockey has he ever seen such a raging dumpster fire of an organization. Yet there’s something about this team and this city that compels him to roll up his sleeves and start dismantling. He has his eye on a new associate coach that’s bound to makes waves, and several key players who should be sent packing. Now all he has to do is convince the new owners of the team that his choices are for the best. If only Mark Westman-Reid, one of three siblings who now own the Raptors, wasn’t so damned rock-headed, so damned snooty, and so damned appealing his job might be a bit easier.

 

Review

Coast to Coast is an engaging story. The Rapters won’t know what hit them when coach Rowen comes to straighten them up.
Mark has the same idea. As a new and reluctant part owner of the team he wants to clean house, too bad he knows nothing about hockey.
Heads butt and attraction sparks between the two. The former model turned business man and the hockey player turned coach explode together. The give and take between the characters, both men who have their own ideas and both used to getting their own way is amusing to read. Neither wants to give an inch, but they learn to work together for the betterment of the team and their uncontrollable attraction.
I love a good hockey romance and Coast to Coast didn’t disappoint. Wonderful characters and an enjoyable story line kept me reading.

The Positions of Love

 

 
Length: 99,966 words.
 
Publisher: JMS Books 
 
Blurb
 

When Matt diLorenzo gives his lover, Vic Braunson, a copy of the Kama Sutra for Gay Men as a Christmas gift, they find it doubles as a handy reference guide to Vic’s super powers. All they have to do is test out the positions to see which one gives him what ability …


Contains the stories:


The Positions of Love: When Vic’s boss asks him to play Santa at the company Christmas party, the enticement of more time off sweetens the deal. It might be a wonderful holiday season after all … if he can only find the perfect present for his lover.


Two Pillars Position: Some mornings, Vic stops by the gym to bench-press a few thousand pounds, show off for his fellow bodybuilders, and spend some time with his lover before he has to start his day. A quickie in the pool showers seems like a good way to get the blood pumping …


Clasping Position: Though Vic had difficulty finding a suitable gift for his lover for Christmas, Matt has the perfect evening planned for Valentine’s. He’s made reservations at an expensive steakhouse for the two of them, and hopes the intimate dinner is a prelude to a night of love. But things get a little frisky before they leave for the restaurant.


Hammock Position: Spring is in the air, and Matt convinces Vic to join him for a little rest and relaxation on the sunny banks of the James River. What’s more enticing than sex on the rocks by the river’s rapids?


Two Dogs Position: Doggy style brings out the animal in Vic, literally. He finds out the hard way, when Matt invites friends over for a party. Vic’s heightened senses reel from the sights and sounds, and he locks himself away in the bathroom just to get his latest superpower under control. But what he hears in the apartment above puts the party on hold.


Cowboy Position: Matt diLorenzo has a secret fetish — he loves to watch a man eat. When Vic finds out, he suggests they share a quiet, indoor picnic. Something sinfully sexy, for just the two of them. On the menu? Whipped cream, fresh strawberries, and chocolate syrup drizzled over Matt’s bare skin for Vic to lick off.


Kneeling Butterfly Position: It’s a rainy Saturday and Matt wants to spend it at the mall. And what Matt wants, he gets. There’s only one little problem. He loves shopping; Vic does not. Still, the promise of sex in the dressing room sparks Vic’s interest.


Pillar and the Ivy Position: One of Matt’s favorite sexual positions, but he doubts his ability to support Vic’s weight as they make love standing up. He’s not the one with super strength, after all. Vic thinks maybe they could pull it off … in the gym’s swimming pool.


Tripod Position: It’s Vic’s birthday, and Matt wants to do something special. When he discovers his lover has a leather fetish and used to be into clubbing, Matt thinks it’d be fun to go out as a couple to celebrate his special night. But while Matt looks sexy in boyshorts, Vic isn’t the only one watching.


Lotus Position: When Vic has a few days off from work, the two visit Wildwood, New Jersey, a tourist town Matt used to frequent as a child. Though Vic isn’t keen on crowds and would prefer to spend his downtime at home, Matt entices him with the offer of sex on the beach … and he doesn’t mean the drink, either.


The Arc Position: It’s Halloween, and Roxie is having a party. Matt wants to dress as policemen but Vic’s latest power creates a costume all his own.


Sideways Position: For Thanksgiving, Matt takes Vic home to meet his parents. The diLorenzos aren’t quite sure what to make of their son’s lover. Matt’s Nonna tends to lapse into her native tongue without realizing it. Imagine everyone’s surprise when Vic answers her in flawless Italian.

Isha has spent the last year watching his BFF get his happily-ever-after. He’s proud of Dom, but…it hurts to see him so free while Isha’s love life is still on lockdown. Only Isha’s ex-wife knows the secret that he’s kept caged for so long—that he’s queer too, and he’s lonely.


Jude’s too chained to his work to notice what he’s missing by being terminally single, but a new face in the village soon catches his attention. City boy Isha is gorgeous, and when he starts to haunt Jude’s reptile shop as well as the hook-up app on his phone, he’s a welcome distraction from Jude’s business problems.


For a control freak like Isha, letting Jude under his skin is an existential meltdown, but Jude’s not in the market to be anyone’s queer crisis, not when he’s facing troubles of his own. Unlocking their lives could push both men apart forever, but it might be a risk worth taking if sharing is the key to their happy future.

That decree leads Marek to knock on the door of his next-door neighbor, Shey Pierson, the owner of Sun Touch Yoga Studio. Shey ticks every box Marek has with his soft blue eyes, flowing golden hair, and long limber legs. The only problem is that Shey is yin to Marek’s yang.

Can a man famed for throwing punches find serenity in the arms of a man known for his tranquil ways?

Rough Trade
Men in Love and at War Book 6
Berkeley is set for life after providing his Royal Services and decides to
travel to London to visit his friends and family to cheer him up.
There he has a raunchy chance encounter with a stranger on a train
who he meets again in unsuspected circumstances. In between all the
wild sexual antics, Leonard takes Berkeley back in time to a
spiritual world of religious communes, demons, exorcisms, and Ouija
boards that proves to be enlightening, unnerving, but most
worryingly, life threatening.
When Berkeley returns to Tenerife to discover his gardener has had an
accident, he enlists the help of a local beggar, a Moroccan man
called Mohammed, to service his garden and him. The sadness and
mystery of Mohammed’s past gradually unfolds, and when Berkeley
tries to do the right thing to help him, he is confronted with the
reality of Mohammed’s dark and chilling past.
Two different men spell double trouble for Berkeley, but he has never
shied away from a challenge—or a gorgeous man—and he’s not
about to now.
Trade Babes Turned Bad
Men in Love and at War Book 7
Two things are still plaguing Berkeley—the unexplained and strange
disappearance of Leonard, and the possible outcome of Mohammed’s
retrial for a manslaughter charge. They say bad things always come in
threes, and in Berkeley’s case that belief is no exception. When
Berkeley gets a call from one of his best friends from London, Paul,
his dose of bad karma is completed when he discovers Paul’s younger
brother, Kenny, has been killed in a tragic car accident. Berkeley
does his best to pacify Paul and stop him from going through with his
ludicrous plan. In exchange, Berkeley has to agree to go back to
London for the Trade reunion party. Berkeley and Paul have the time
of their lives, but when dawn breaks and the party’s over, all hell
breaks loose.
The Road to Mount Evans
Men in Love and at War Book 8
Berkeley and Paul are excited about attending their first gay rodeo in Denver,
Colorado. Even after a tiring fourteen-hour trip from London, the
bright lights and prospect of meeting some horny cowboys
instinctively draws them to Lower Downtown, where things aren’t
exactly what Berkeley had expected. Whilst Paul revels in throwing
himself at every available man in any bar or at any rodeo event,
Berkeley has different expectations. Beyond his wildest hopes and
dreams, Berkeley meets Nantan, a Native American, who sweeps Berkeley
off his feet. But Berkeley discovers there is a lot more to Nantan
than meets the eye.
Return to Loveland
Men in Love and at War Book 9
While Berkeley is waiting at Gatwick airport for his transfer flight from
Denver International airport to Tenerife, he convinces himself the
dream he’d had on the plane was more than just a dream. Battling
against rational thoughts and raw emotions, Berkeley follows his gut
instincts in search of the Native American, Nantan. Curious and keen
to understand more about Nantan’s life as a wolf, Berkeley gets a
lot closer than he expected to finding out what it’s really like.
Love conquers all as Berkeley escapes a close encounter with death
that cements his future with Nantan.
The Imposter
Men in Love and at War Book 10
Berkeley’s high spirits are dampened when he opens his world up to three
relative strangers and is confronted with a series of macabre
happenings. When things get out of hand, Berkeley turns to his
ex-partner, Captain Rick, to help unravel the mystery of what’s
happening and why. Berkeley’s gardener, Rene, a Santeria Priest, is
the obvious suspect. But is he too obvious and being set-up? Jacob,
an author, has the creative mind to develop and execute such a
cunning and sophisticated plan. Nantan has inside knowledge and the
opportunity. With another few suspects thrown into the pot, Berkeley
and Rick have their work cut out before time runs out and death
strikes again.
