Book blurb:

Ottieni quattro romanzi gay divertenti e sexy in questo set! Storie romantiche con un cuore leggero e dolce su ragazzi che si trasformano da nemici in amanti.

 

Libro 1: Quello che non sai

Shane si sente un po’ fregato. Ha appena iniziato il college e ha scoperto di dover condividere la stanza con quel bastardo di Trey.

Il ragazzo di sua sorella. Il bellissimo ragazzo di sua sorella.

Oh-oh. No, non può succedere.

Ma per quanto si sforzi, c’è qualcosa tra loro che è troppo difficile da ignorare…

 

Libro 2: Quello che non dici

A parte la sua preziosa Lamborghini, Karl Andrews non possiede niente. La fortuna non gira dalla sua parte, il denaro sta finendo e il suo sogno di diventare un cuoco professionista sembra sempre più irraggiungibile. Soprattutto quando i ristoranti non lo vogliono assumere nemmeno come cameriere. Ma non prenderà mai in considerazione di vendere l’unica cosa che possiede. Non importa quanto potrebbe guadagnarci. Non succederà mai.

Piuttosto… Piuttosto…

Piuttosto risponde a un annuncio per un lavoro come ragazza alla pari.

A parte la definizione in sé, il lavoro gli sembra buono. Dovrà cucinare un po’, pulire, niente che non possa gestire.

Davvero.

Fin quando non si reca al colloquio e scopre che l’uomo che dovrebbe assumerlo è lo stesso che ha bullizzato, deriso e terrorizzato da bambino. Ma Paul Hyte è ovviamente un uomo migliore di lui, gentile e clemente. E si fida di lui, visto che la parte principale del suo lavoro sarà prendersi cura di suo figlio.

Nonostante il perdono da parte di Paul, le cose tra loro sono incerte, ed entrambi devono riconciliarsi con il loro passato se vogliono lasciarselo alle spalle. Mentre i due uomini imparano a conoscersi, un’innegabile attrazione cresce tra loro. Ma riusciranno a forgiare il loro futuro su un passato così difficile e un presente così complicato?

 

Libro 3: Quello che non vuoi

William deve imparare a pensare prima di aprire bocca.

Dopo aver inavvertitamente svelato l’omosessualità del suo ultimo ragazzo davanti alla sua famiglia di bigotti, vuole ripartire da zero, così fugge nel posto più lontano che gli viene in mente: la Nuova Zelanda. Lì è ospite di una madre e di suo figlio, Heath, che è fin troppo sexy per essere vero.

Ma Heath e il suo amico omofobo, Rory, vogliono che William si levi di torno prima che vada tutto “in malora”, qualsiasi cosa significhi.

Sfortunatamente, a William non è bastato viaggiare fino in capo al mondo per lasciarsi alle spalle la sua boccaccia inopportuna. Sarà sufficiente per lasciarsi alle spalle la solitudine?

 

Libro 4: Quello che non ami

Rory A. Phillips è stanco di essere tormentato dai fantasmi del passato. Stanco di soffrire come un cane. Stanco di sentirsi sperduto. Ogni volta che “vede” William, il suo migliore amico, fa i bagagli e fugge via in sella alla sua moto. Esisterà un posto in cui scappare per essere libero da lui? Un posto in cui potrà imparare ad amare? Un posto da poter chiamare casa?

Dopo aver perso l’ultimo parente rimastogli, Eric Graham si trasferisce a Wellington per cominciare un nuovo lavoro e una nuova vita. È solo, se si escludono le ceneri di suo nonno che non si convince a disperdere in mare. L’unica persona che conosce in città è uno stronzo omofobo con cui preferirebbe non avere nulla a che fare, ma non fa altro che imbattersi in lui.

Rory ed Eric, entrambi soli e in lutto, cercano la maniera di andare avanti.

Forse il modo migliore è farlo insieme.

 

Excerpt #1 (from “Quello che non sai”):

Parcheggiai dall’altra parte della strada davanti a casa sua. Sapevo dove viveva perché ci avevo lasciato June un paio di volte. Mi sembrava strano essere lì senza mia sorella, però. Ma era stata lei a suggerirmi di andare lì e scoprire – e pregavo Dio che non fosse quello il caso – se lui avesse ricevuto una lettera con il mio nome.

Visto che non avevo l’aria condizionata, mi ero assicurato di tenere abbassati i finestrini. Faceva decisamente troppo caldo, e anche con la lieve brezza che entrava nell’abitacolo stavo sudando. Tenevo il volante con talmente tanta forza che i miei palmi erano caldi e scivolosi.

Assottigliai lo sguardo sulla sua casa così perfetta con le sue aiuole perfette, e poi su Trey, che stava falciando l’erba. Cazzo, mi sentivo uno stalker seduto nella mia auto a guardarlo. Ma non riuscivo a scendere. Cosa diavolo stavo pensando quando mi ero deciso ad andare lì? Lui mi aveva sentito fare coming out. E se avesse voluto picchiarmi? Davvero mi interessava scoprirlo? Diavolo, no. Ma del resto, se fosse stato il mio compagno di stanza – deglutii – avrei dovuto vivere spaventato a morte dai suoi pugni per tutto il semestre. Meglio farsi crescere subito un bel paio di palle. Questa poteva essere considerata una sorta di preparazione mentale. Avrei valutato la sua reazione e avrei capito come rapportarmi con lui al meglio prima di andare al college. Quindi avanti, cosa stai aspettando? Esci da questa cazzo di macchina.

Afferrai la maniglia e sganciai la cintura di sicurezza. Poi mi bloccai di nuovo quando Trey spense il tagliaerba. Si passò il dorso della mano sulla fronte madida di sudore e poi si passò le dita nei capelli scuri.

Si avviò verso il patio e mentre lo faceva il sole creò un piccolo miracolo giocando con la lucentezza del sudore, facendo sembrare che brillasse. Era così ingiusto. Era davvero meglio che non fosse il mio coinquilino. Insomma, sì, un figo come lui sarebbe stata un’ottima cosa, ma cacchio, datemi uno che soffre di flatulenza cronica piuttosto che un Trey così.

Lasciai andare la maniglia. Oh, merda. Ero un pappamolle. Non volevo parlargli. No. Non l’avrei fatto. June me l’avrebbe sempre potuto dire dopo. E così poi mi sarei iscritto in una palestra per arrivare al suo livello. Okay, forse solo a malapena. Ma sarebbe stato qualcosa.

Gemetti e battei la testa contro il volante. «Caaaaazzo.»

«Hai intenzione di uscire prima o poi?»

La mia testa scattò verso l’alto. Ora, in una maglietta attillata bianca, Trey stava arrivando nella mia direzione. Il suo sguardo mi penetrò e mi causò un brivido. «Mmmm.» Sì? No? Forse? Col cazzo?

Sollevò leggermente le sopracciglia, poi camminò attorno all’auto e si lasciò cadere sul sedile del passeggero.

Cercai di determinare cosa avrei fatto se avesse iniziato a prendermi a pugni. Sarei potuto scappare. Probabilmente avrei avuto forza sufficiente per spingerlo fuori dall’auto. E poi dare gas. Stavo pensando troppo? Sì, probabilmente. In fin dei conti questo tizio era il ragazzo di mia sorella. Se il suo amore per lei si avvicinava a quello che lei provava per lui, non mi avrebbe fatto poi tanto male.

«Non mi ero reso conto che mi avessi visto,» dissi infine.

«La tua auto è rossa, amico. L’ho notata.»

Che grande stalker sarei stato.

Trey prese un respiro e lo fece sibilare tra i denti. «Allora, come va?» Si appoggiò allo schienale e guardò fuori dal parabrezza. In qualche modo quel gesto calmò di parecchio i miei nervi.

Mi schiarii la gola. Dovevo partire con: Tutto okay, tu? Oppure arrivare al punto? Buffo come mia sorella fosse uscita con questo tipo per sei mesi e avessi avuto con lui solo una manciata di conversazioni. E non erano state propriamente rivelatrici. Tipo, sapevo che aveva un fratello, ed era stra-strabravo a giocare a basket, ma quelle erano parole di mia sorella.

«Mmm,» finii con uno schiocco. Con tutti i miei mmm e uhm nessuno avrebbe creduto che stavo per studiare logopedia. Lanciai un’occhiata a Trey, che mi sorprese con un sorriso. «Sai chi sarà il tuo compagno di stanza al college?» buttai fuori.

«Shane?» Il mio nome unito alla sua voce profonda… dannazione, era… sexy? Whoa! Distolsi lo sguardo, sentendo il calore salirmi alle guance. E quella da dove mi era venuta? «Saremo coinquilini,» disse lui.

About Anyta Sunday:

asSono una grande, GRANDISSIMA fan dei romance a “cottura lenta”. Amo leggere storie dove i personaggi si innamorano pian piano.

Alcune delle situazioni di cui preferisco leggere e scrivere sono: da nemici ad amanti, da amici ad amanti, ragazzi che proprio non vogliono saperne di cogliere i segnali, bisessuali, pansessuali, demisessuali, tutti (gli altri) se ne sono accorti, l’amore non ha confini.

Scrivo storie di vario genere: romance contemporanei con una buona cucchiaiata di angst, romance contemporanei spensierati e, a volte, persino storie con una spruzzata di fantasy.

A Tiny Piece of Something Greater by Jude Sierra: Release Date Blitz + Excerpt + Giveaway

tiny (1)

Publisher: Interlude Press

Release Date (Print & Ebook): May 17, 2018

Length (Print & Ebook): 258 Pages

Subgenre: LGBT, Interracial/Multicultural, New Adult

Book blurb: Reid Watsford has a lot of secrets and a past he can’t quite escape. While staying at his grandmother’s condo in Key Largo, he signs up for introductory dive classes, where he meets Joaquim Oliveira, a Brazilian dive instructor with wanderlust. Driven by an instant, magnetic pull, what could have been just a hookup quickly deepens. As their relationship evolves, they must learn to navigate the challenges of Reid’s mental illness—on their own and with each other.

Editor’s Note: Some readers may find some of the scenes in this book difficult to read. We have compiled a list of content warnings, which you can access at interludepress.com/content-warnings

Excerpt:

(brace yourselves because this is the softest thing ever)

“All right,” Reid says. “Close your eyes.”

“Oh, is it my turn now?”

“Yep. Please try not to fall; we’re aiming for romantic.” Reid guides him with one hand on his shoulder and the other at the small of his back, trusting Joaquim to keep his eyes closed. “Hand out,” Reid says. He takes Joaquim’s hand, puts it on the back of a chair, and lets Joaquim fumble into it. A whispered kiss to his lips, then two more to his eyelids and Reid’s soft command to open his eyes make him viscerally aware of love, as if Reid’s touch has become a living thing, something curled inside Joaquim, something he can cherish and hold and keep.

The table is set with candles Joaquim recognizes. There’s also a beautiful charcuterie plate, chocolate-dipped strawberries dewing from the humidity, and tall drinks garnished with lime wheels.

“I’m breaking some rules with these. I did some research online and thought I’d try to make something that might remind you of home,” Reid explains. He’s twisting his hands nervously. “Also, we’re eating on the pool deck, although no one really pays attention to that.”

“Reid.” Joaquim turns and presses his cheek against Reid’s belly, closes his eyes into Reid’s fingers ruffling through his hair.

“I had a plan for something else, but I fucked it up. Um, so the drinks don’t match but, yeah. Caipirinhas?” Reid tests the word out slowly, fumbling over the pronunciation.

“Hey, hey,” Joaquim says, catching Reid’s fingers and kissing them. “This is wonderful.” It also explains the cupcakes. “Thank you.”

Reid’s eyes are bright, and his smile is shy, sweet in a way Joaquim never could have expected when they first met. “You are so welcome.” His next kiss is somehow even sweeter. It lingers, it promises, though it’s not about the heat that so often sparks between them. It’s love, is all. It is simple and full.

“Let’s eat.” Reid pulls up a chair. “Tell me what you like.”

“I want to try it all.”

“Well, then, here.” Reid selects an olive, “These are my favorite.” Joaquim allows him to slip it between his lips. He holds Reid’s wrist carefully and nips at his fingers.

“Delicious.” Joaquim doesn’t let go. Reid cups his cheek briefly and smiles again.

They eat slowly, moving to the strawberries eventually. Night begins her sweet slide across the sky, slipping over the light.

jude picJude Sierra talks A Tiny Piece of Something Greater: I want readers to walk away with a deeper appreciation and understanding of what it is like to thrive with mental illness—or strive toward it—and what it is like for two people to be and fall in love in these situations. I’d love for readers to come away knowing that love doesn’t cure mental illness, nor should it. Reid and Joaquim love each other as they are.

About Jude Sierra: Jude Sierra is a Latinx poet, author, academic and mother working toward her PhD in Writing and Rhetoric, looking at the intersections of Queer, Feminist and Pop Culture Studies. She also works as an LGBTQAI+ book reviewer for From Top to Bottom Reviews.

Synopsis:

When opposites attract, love blooms in unexpected places.

Buttoned-up botanist Stefan Albemarle has felt like an outsider his whole life. As a result, he mostly keeps to himself—makes it easier not to notice that no matter how he tries, people think he’s a know-it-all and a snob.

Freewheeling urban gardener Milo Rios has worked hard to get where he is, and he’s passionate about his job at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. He can get along with almost anyone, but no one has ever made him care enough to stick around.

When Stefan and Milo meet on Milo’s tour of the Botanic Garden, it’s hatred at first clash. But hatred quickly turns to lust as Milo shows Stefan how exquisite it can feel to lose the control he’s clung to for so long. As Stefan’s mask begins to slip, Milo sees a deep vulnerability in the prim academic. Once he’s experienced Milo’s world, Stefan can admit that he wants more from life than professional success. If they can work together, Stefan and Milo just might be able to cultivate the future they both yearn for.

Synopsis:

In the wake of tragedy, SEAL Mark Whitley rushed stateside to act as guardian to his sister’s three young children. But a conflicting will could give custody to someone else—someone Mark remembers as a too young, too hot, wild party boy. Even after six years, Mark can’t shake the memory of his close encounter with Isaiah James, or face up to what it says about his own sexuality.

Isaiah’s totally over the crush that made him proposition Mark all those years ago. In fact, he’s done with crushing on the wrong men altogether. For now, he’s throwing himself into proving he’s the best person to care for his cousin’s kids. But there’s no denying there’s something sexy about a big, tough military man with a baby in his arms.

As the legal details get sorted out, their long-buried attraction resurfaces, leading to intimate evenings after the kids are tucked in. A forever future is within reach for all of them, if only Mark can find the courage he needs to trust Isaiah with his secrets—and his heart.

What Annabeth Albert has to say about this book in her Out of Uniform series:

“I wanted to write a book about the nature of family and how loss and tragedy can shape family, mold it into something stronger, force growth and change. I’m enormously proud of SQUARED AWAY as a result because how I fell in love with this little family.”

“When Wizard first appeared in ON POINT as a secondary character, I was intrigued by him, but it wasn’t until I let myself get into his head that I really saw how complicated he was. I feel honored and privileged to have been able to tell his story.”

“No book gets written in a vacuum and this one is no different. I owe a huge debt on this book to my sensitivity readers who really encouraged me to dig deep.”

Praise for the series:

“Albert delivers a solid hurt/comfort story…” RT Book Reviews on SQUARED AWAY

 “Mark and Isaiah’s budding relationship happens with sensitivity and steamy moments…” RT Book Reviews on SQUARED AWAY

“Annabeth Albert’s Out of Uniform series is a unique look at SEALs’ lives, showing us the insides of their hearts and homes and the love that drives them.” ~Layla Reyne, author of the Agents Irish and Whisky series.   

“Sexy, sweet and heartfelt, Annabeth Albert’s Out of Uniform series is a fresh take on Navy SEALs that will delight and entertain romance readers.” ~Layla Reyne, author of the Agents Irish and Whisky series.

Excerpt:

Thus, it was much later than he’d intended when he rolled back into the driveway at the house. Past dinner. Fuck. And he’d promised to help. He was falling down on the job already. Cursing himself, he entered through the side door, surprised by how quiet everything was. Were they in bed already?

A quick investigation revealed the truth—they were all in the family room, on the oversized sectional. A kids’ movie was playing softly on the TV, and Isaiah was passed out on the chaise part of the sectional, Liam asleep on his chest, girls sleeping cuddled up on either side of him, the blankets they were seldom without wrapped around them. Half a bowl of popcorn sat on the floor.

That seldom-used place in Mark’s chest pinged again, a deep ache that resonated through his whole torso. This was why he’d accepted the instructor position without much fuss. He couldn’t let it all fall to Isaiah. They’re mine now. Like it or not, these were his kids now, and it was time to start acting like it.

Syncopation by Anna Zabo: Release Blitz + Giveaway!

9781488089350

Series: Twisted Wishes #1

Publisher: Carina Press

Length (Print & Ebook): 104,000 words or ~295 pages

Subgenre: contemporary romance; m/m romance

Includes: Rockstars, BDSM, Angst, Pansexual/bisexual, Aromantic

Synopsis:

There’s no resisting the thrum of temptation in this male/male rock-star romance from genre-favorite author Anna Zabo!

Twisted Wishes front man Ray Van Zeller is in one hell of a tight spot. After a heated confrontation with his bandmate goes viral, Ray is hit with a PR nightmare the fledgling band so doesn’t need. But his problems only multiply when they snag a talented new drummer—insufferably sexy Zavier Demos, the high school crush Ray barely survived.

Zavier’s kept a casual eye on Twisted Wishes for years, and lately, he likes what he sees. What he doesn’t like is how out of control Ray seems—something Zavier’s aching to correct after their first pulse-pounding encounter. If Ray’s up for the challenge.

Despite the prospect of a glorious sexual encore, Ray is reluctant to trust Zavier with his band—or his heart. And Zavier has always had big dreams; this gig was supposed to be temporary. But touring together has opened their eyes to new passions and new possibilities, making them rethink their commitments, both to the band and to each other.

Excerpt:

“Who the hell is auditioning?”

“Me.”

Smooth voice, like those images of melted chocolate in commercials. Vaguely familiar, too. Tingles ran down both of Ray’s legs, and he rotated toward the door.

There, leaning against the frame, was Zavier Demos. Older, improbably hotter, and still as perfect as ever.

“No.”

Fucker flashed a gorgeous smile. “Nice to see you, too, Ray.”

No wonder Dom hadn’t put him on the list. Ray would have crossed his name right back off due the lingering anger from high school. Zavier had been everything he’d wanted to be. Born with rock-star looks and a rock-star name, and a musical prodigy to boot. Fucking asshole had laughed all those years ago when Ray had asked him to join his first band.

About Anna Zabo:

Headshots-Anna-Zabo-1Anna Zabo writes contemporary and paranormal romance for all colors of the rainbow. They live and work in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, which isn’t nearly as boring as most people think.

Anna grew up in the wilds of suburban Philadelphia before returning to their ancestral homelands in Western Pennsylvania. As a child they were heartily disappointed to discover that they couldn’t grow up to be what they wanted (a boy, a cat, a dragon), so they settled on being themself whenever possible, which may be a combination of a boy, a cat, and a dragon. Or perhaps a girl, a knight, and a writer. Depends on whom you ask. They do have a penchant for colorful ties and may be hording a small collection of cufflinks.They can be easily plied with coffee.

Anna has an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University, where they fell in with a roving band of romance writers and never looked back. They also have a BA in Creative Writing from Carnegie Mellon University.

Cover reveal: Society of Wishes by Elise Kova & Lynn Larsh

Today I am excited to be part of the cover reveal for a new series by Elise Kova and Lynn Larsh. This sounds so interesting and so different from what Kova has published so far, so I’m definitely looking forward to see how she does in a different genre and in a collab with another writer (who I still haven’t had the pleasure to read anything by).

Summary:

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR.

Josephina Espinosa makes her living as a hacker-for-hire in the Lone Star Republic, a remnant of the fractured U.S.A. That is, until the day she and her best friend are gunned down in a government raid.

With her dying breath, Jo uses magical lore passed down from her grandmother to summon a wish-granter. Her wish? To save her friend’s life. Except wishes have costs, and for Jo, the price is the erasure of her entire mortal existence.

Now, as the most recent addition to the mysterious Society of Wishes, Jo must form a new “life” alongside the seven other members, one of which being her savior himself. Living as an occupant of the Society’s lavish mansion should be quite the perk, but while it is furnished with everything its inhabitants could possibly need, it lacks one thing—freedom.

Her otherworldly identity crisis takes a backseat, however, when Jo learns that the friend she sacrificed everything for is headed down the same path to ruin. Jumping in head-first, Jo uses her newfound magical abilities to protect him, only to realize that the ripples of her actions have far-reaching consequences. When the Society’s aloof leader Snow decides to give her a taste of his own ancient magic, Jo discovers that there are threads woven into the tapestry of her new reality that reach far beyond the wishes she is now required to grant. Ones that, if tugged on, could mean the unraveling of her existence itself.

Publication Date: January 29, 2018

Genre(s): New-Adult, Urban Fantasy, Romance

I FREAKING LOVE THIS COVER and it only makes me more excited to read this book/series!

 

INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHORS

E = Elise’s Answer
L = Lynn’s Answer

1) What made you want to start writing?
L: Is saying fan fiction too lame? Because it was definitely fan fiction.
2) What was your favorite part about working on this project?
L: Honestly, just being able to work with original characters and concepts was so exciting for me. And having someone so talented to collaborate with just made the whole experience that much more fun.
E: The collaboration was definitely an exciting and new element. Lynn really helped bring a fresh perspective to my writing and a new voice to draw from—especially regarding her personal heritage that really gave the character Jo so much more depth.
3) What part of the process did you find the hardest?
L: Everything was so new for me, but I probably had the hardest time keeping on myself to make sure I didn’t fall behind. I wasn’t used to working on a schedule, but I think I handled it well enough!
E: I really wanted to make sure that the work was divided evenly and it was our story. I’m so happy with the final product though. I really think it’s the perfect merger of both of our abilities.
4) Who is the character you relate to most and why?
L: Probably… Wayne? Because I’m charming and debonair and possibly, despite my heart of gold, most likely an annoyance to all. I also occasionally call people doll face.
E: Likely Nico. I was a studio art minor in college and was that girl who always had paint staining her fingers. Plus, even if I don’t always succeed, I really like making people smile.
5) Why the switch to new-adult, and urban fantasy?
E: I always want my work to be growing, changing, and evolving. I don’t want to be an author where people always know the story they’re going to get before they even pick up the book. Plus, it was really fun to write some super steamy romantic tension!
