The Man Inside Me: An MM Gothic Romance by Sean Kerr



Blurb – 

You may never be too old to find love, but will you be able to survive it?

At what age is the hope of love lost? Can a love that has slipped into friendship be re-kindled?

These thoughts lay heavy in Gabriel’s soul, for while he finds the spark of love still burns inside his middle-aged heart, he cannot tell Henry. When they were young at Oxford University, their love burned hot and bright, and they thought to change the world together until a devastating tragedy ripped them apart.

Youth. It slips away in the blink of an eye, and Henry can no longer stand to see his own reflection in the mirror, for all he sees is a sad, tired old man whose body has betrayed him. He craves the touch of another, to feel attractive and vital once more, but his obsession with his work has stolen his life from him, and now it has taken on a sinister dimension.

Determined to continue with his work regardless of the consequences, Henry invites his friends over for a dinner party, but one of his guests is missing, and the evening is shattered by the revelation of a brutal murder.

To what lengths would you go to find love? How far would you go to see your youth renewed? These are the dilemmas facing Gabriel and Henry as their friendship is tested to its very limits, for their lives are shattered by a vicious killer. Is there still the chance for love, or has age stolen that from them too? Can they move beyond the friendship that has spanned over thirty years and find the love that once made their hearts beat as one?


Our Reviews – 

Misti – 

After reading this book I literally had to put it down and walk away and I’ve had the hardest time writing this review. I want to tell you bits and pieces but not give anything away. So let’s start with your going to meet two men Gabriel and Henry and this book takes place in the 1800’s . You know when gentlemen were gentlemen. I can’t imagine that this book was easy to write because the descriptions that are used are in such a fine detail you can see things before your eyes as you read page by page.

The main characters Henry and Gabriel you feel like come to life before you as they meet as young men at Oxford and continue their friendship through midlife. Where they have both been so consumed with their careers to distract from the fact that they are gay at time where it definitely isn’t safe to be and also to where they don’t have to admit how lonely each of them are. While Henry seems to be the one to be more bothered by being older for me it is Gabriel that is the one that has the hardest time coming to terms with the fact that he loves Henry.

This book will give you spine tingling twists and turns. It will make you laugh and cry. It may also make you want throw something. You will be taken on a journey I don’t think you will expect and at times you’ll wonder if your even in the same area as he leads you through the back alley ways into a different world. What most I’m sure would call at that time a seedier part of the city where a gentleman would never go. Oh my oh my and I definitely have to say the sexual chemistry in this book is off the chart. From first time lovers to just the raw animal passion that we all have had at some point if we are lucky.

So at this time who do I recommend this book too. Anyone who likes a suspense, thriller, gothic romance. Anyone who wants that HEA that has drug you threw the mud and threw everything at you but your still together through it all. Or how about the innocent first moments of falling in love that first time. So I guess I recommend this book to anyone. Go ahead I guarantee you will not be disappointed with one ounce of this book.


More Than Love You (More Than Words Book 3) By Shayla Black


I hooked up with my temporary roommate. I never thought I’d lose my heart.

I’m Noah Weston. For a decade, I’ve quarterbacked America’s most iconic football team and plowed my way through women. Now I’m transitioning from star player to retired jock—with a cloud of allegation hanging over my head. So I’m escaping to the private ocean-front paradise I bought for peace and quiet. What I get instead is stubborn, snarky, wild, lights-my-blood-on-fire Harlow Reed. Since she just left a relationship in a hugely viral way, she should be the last woman I’m seen with.

On second thought, we can help each other…

I need a steady, supportive “girlfriend” for the court of public opinion, not entanglements. Harlow is merely looking for nonstop sweaty sex and screaming orgasms that wring pleasure from her oh-so-luscious body. Three months—that’s how long it should take for us both to scratch this itch and leave our respective scandals behind. But the more I know this woman, the less I can picture my life without her. And when I’m forced to choose, I’ll realize I don’t merely want her in my bed or need her for a ruse. I more than love her enough to do whatever it takes to make her mine for good.

More Than Love You is a sexy and emotional standalone novel from New York Times bestselling author in the More Than Words Series.


Our Reviews – 

Betsy – 

What can I say about Harlow and Noah? The way these two stumble across each other is priceless and the perfect set-up to the story. Harlow is a “runaway bride” and Noah is a newly retired NFL quarterback. What starts as a way to help each other out quickly morphs into something much more. Instead of the standard girl falls madly in love with boy story, in this book it’s Noah that realizes how special Harlow is and that she isn’t an itch that can easily be scratched away. By far my favorite book in the More Than Words series. A perfect example of why Shayla Black is one of my top one-click authors.

Antonette – 

THIS STORY…. There are no words that can do my feelings justice. I loved it!

It was more than a story. It was a feeling. All the feelings. You can’t help but fall in love with these characters from the moment you meet them.

It was also written very well and I can’t wait until the rest of the series comes out because I am sure it will be equally amazing.

Kudos to Brittany Holland on a wonderful 5 star read.

Undisputed by Aaron L. Speer

Blurb – 

Owen Gasnier is a gentleman even inside the Cage. As much of a gentleman as one can be having an undisputed record with every win by a knock out. People LOVE him.

Overworked barista Tegan Holland doesn’t know he exists. Not until ten minutes before her friend Fiona drags her to the biggest cage fight Sydney has ever seen.

By the time he heads back to his training camp in the States, she’ll never forget him. But should she let him forget her? He’s chasing his dream. He doesn’t have time for her. Does he?

For Owen, the hits just keep coming. Trash talking opponents, sensationalist media, and someone’s out to ruin him for good. He can’t put Tegan in the middle of it. Can he?

Soon, will any of it matter? Cause life has other plans, and NOTHING hits harder than life.


Our Reviews – 

Betsy – 

In Undisputed is not a cookie cutter romance novel but you certainly get all the feels. Owen and Tegan have a chemistry that can’t be denied. Even in the face of the worst, they can’t help but be drawn together. Tegan’s best friend Fiona or FiFi as she likes to be called is who I aspire to be when I grow up. She’s ballsy, sarcastic and a fireball. The characters are believable and well developed. The story itself keeps you engaged from the first page to the last and never moves too fast or two slow. I’ve read various MMA stories and this one stood up to even the best I’ve read. I can’t wait to see what else this series will bring us.

Misti – 

Full disclaimer, this is my first book by this author. Now after saying that I can honestly say it won’t be my last.

This book for me sucked me in from the first chapter and never let up. When an author can in one moment tick me off and then the next make me love him again. That to me is an author folks!!!

I’ve read a few MMA books and I have to say that what stuck out for me is that while yes this was a sports romance the author didn’t over do the sports jargon for me he told a beautiful story that definitely has made my top 5 reads for the year.


Being Graves by Drew Sera

Blurb – 

Confident. Charming. Magnetic. Irresistible.

Women undress me with their eyes and fantasize about an evening with me in Club Irons. Those who get their chance rave about our time. I’m self-sufficient, and I don’t need or want a permanent woman in my life.

I like my sex kinky, hard and a touch on the rough side. And I don’t mix sex with emotions. I’m unable to give a woman anything but an evening of pleasure, and I’m not looking for anything complicated. I just want fun sex with no ropes attached…unless I’m the one applying the rope.

At one time I thought I was destined for a life of loneliness, chased by the demons of my past. Things have changed. I have a few exceptional friends who have become my family and are everything to me.

Sure, I have my share of regrets, but I don’t like talking or sharing much from my life. There are parts of my past that I may never reveal to anyone.


*Warning: This book contains dark content and covers abuse in memories, nightmares, and flashbacks of the main character. Please read with caution.


Our Reviews – 

Betsy – 

In Being Graves we learn more and more about the horrors that Anthony suffered as a child. We also see how those experiences still cloud the life he lives so many years later. However, the core of this story is the friendship that develops between Anthony, Colin, and Matt. The family that Anthony makes with his friends may start to heal the scars that his own family left behind.

While the story showcases Anthony becoming the man that we meet in the Everett Gaming series, the flashbacks to his childhood and the horrors that get hinted at explain so very much about the Dom that Anthony becomes. With each flashback, readers see just how damaging every single day of Anthony’s young life really was. With each chapter, I wanted to hurt those who caused so much pain in Anthony’s life.

Being Graves is another heart-wrenching novel by an author that is at the top of my one-click list.

Sugar & Cyanide by T.S. Woolard

Blurb –

T.s. Woolard’s poetry book Sugar & Cyanide
Will take you on a rollercoaster ride of
Depth and emotions. His poetry is from deep within
His soul where he bares raw emotions
And pain. There are Extreme love and loyalty,
Alongside desperation, grief and loss, that we have all
Felt in our lifetimes but we prevail. His words will bring you
From the highest heights to the lowest of lows and every
Other emotion there is in-between.


Our Reviews – 

Betsy – 

Sugar & Cyanide is a beautiful compilation of poetry that ranges from the depths of despair to the highs of romance. With each poem you find the feeling of the writer laid bare on the pages. I found each poem evoked different emotions from love to desperation to hope to depression. I loved each poem in the collection, however, I’d have to say that the final poem in the book touched me in a way that I wasn’t expecting. A phenomenal collection of poems that is a definite must-read.


Misti – 

The author takes you along for the ride through his journey of poems. While I will say the final poem in the book is why I actually read it once I heard a friend of mine read it I knew I had to.  As you read through the pages you find that each poem takes you to a different place.  You feel with each stroke of the page the passion that the author uses within to leave you feeling everything he felt in that moment.  This definitely is a must read if you love poetry.
