orderA demanding chef and a straight former soldier: Taking orders has never been so hot!

Veteran and bar manager Tyler Hewitt has too much on his plate. His old Army buddy is hanging on by a thread, his father is recovering from surgery, and he’s temporarily running the Hawk Point Tavern while the owner is away.

Chef Donovan Ryan is always the one in charge—in the kitchen and in the bedroom. So it doesn’t sit well when he has to answer to Tyler. They’ve always butted heads, but without a buffer, the tension has never been higher.

Until one night when their sparks go up in flames.

Tyler is sure he’s only into kink if he’s the one dishing it out, but Donovan’s control leaves him hungry for more.

Hooking up is one thing. Love is another.

Can Tyler embrace taking orders from a civilian, or will Donovan have to give up his dream of a collared submissive to keep the man he loves?

Made to Order includes: hot tempers, CBT, breath play, kinky kitchen implements, and nosy grandmothers.

For trigger warnings, please use the ‘look inside’ feature.

kyPartners in every sense of the word, Sawyer and Jackson have been a unit since they were young teenagers. Growing up together in the same foster home, they learned they could depend only on each other. But when Kyler—a boy barely half their age—arrived heartbroken and scared, the young men took him under their wings, vowing to take care of him and protect him.

But then an unimaginable nightmare tears their world apart, separating Sawyer and Jackson from Kyler. Doing their best to keep their vow, even after disaster strikes, Sawyer and Jackson try to ensure Kyler is safe as he grows up without them.

Kyler always thought running from his past was his only option, until his past catches up with him in the form of Sawyer and Jackson. He finally realizes, maybe the only way forward is to go back to the past. But in doing so, the three of them find themselves embroiled in a family vendetta that spans decades, threatening to upend their world once again.

Will Sawyer and Jackson finally be able to fulfill their promise to keep Kyler safe— while proving they accept and love him for who he is—or will the odds always be stacked against them?

Author’s Note: Kyler is genderfluid, for more specifics and/or if you prefer trigger warnings, please use the “Look Inside” feature to find them within the first several pages of the book. Ignore them, otherwise. Happy reading!

matchedSimon Prentiss: ex-football star, bitter rival, and…falling for the enemy?
I hate my teammate, Parker Reed.
I hate that he makes me work so hard for my position on the field.
Hate how he always smiles. How easily he shows me up when I’m injured.

Most of all, I hate that he made me lose my temper.

Next thing I know, football is gone.
My scholarship is gone.
I’m nearly gone, too.

With help, I manage to stay in school for my final semester.
At least without football, I can explore a new side to myself.
See where my attraction to guys takes me without fear of it affecting my future.

I didn’t see it coming. The cosmic joke.
The sweet, patient guy on the hookup app?
The one who makes me burn with the desire to have him?

Yeah, it’s Parker.

Our chemistry is off the charts, no matter how much I resent him.
Holding a grudge against him is impossible.
But when he wants to walk away from everything I lost, can I accept it?

If I don’t, I’ll lose him too–and that can’t happen.
Because I don’t hate Parker Reed.
I think I love him.

Matched By My Rival is an enemies-to-lovers, jock rivals romance. It’s Book 2 of the Thrust Into Love series but can be read as a standalone.

somewhereThe guitarist and the geek…

Bobby J-

What can I say? I’m a man of many tastes. I know what I like, and I’m not afraid to go for it. And I like the adorable geek from the bar. A lot. He’s smart and sassy…and he doesn’t seem to know or care that I’m in a hot up-and-coming band. However, I just found out he’s the new intern at Scratch Records. Uh-oh, this could get tricky.

Cody-

Confession…I’ve flubbed my mission. My quest is to research cool things and interesting people before I start my job as aerospace analyst—not fall for a rock star. My internship won’t last long if I can’t control this infatuation. Bobby J might look like a bear, but he’s fun and sweet and…oh boy, I think I’m in over my head. But maybe that’s not such a bad thing. After all, you’ve got to start somewhere.

Starting From Somewhere is a MM, bisexual romance with some rock and roll and a little nerdiness! Each book in the Starting From series can be read as a stand-alone.

princeA mother’s secret pain. A son’s need to break free.

Two decades after a virus raged through the world and took most of humanity, Daya, the prince of the settlement his mother founded, longs to break out of the fences that have kept him safe his entire life and explore the new world.

Taught to fight and survive by his parents, Daya wanted to use his skills, but he was sheltered, protected. Then one day, his parents let him go.

Using the training he’d received, Daya set out on his own to discover the harsh world the virus had left in its wake. Warnings of pirates and marauders rang in his mind as he hunted and camped, ever wary.

A father’s crimes. A son’s need to break free.

Alastar, raised with those pirates, was out hunting. He’d gotten away from his camp for a couple of  glorious days. Away from the vicious and cruel life he knew.

The two met, fought, finding each other equal in strength. They decided to talk instead and developed a friendship that quickly heated into something more.

Being complete opposites didn’t stop the hidden passion and love that developed. Daya wanted to take Alastar away to his home, give him the life he deserved, but Alastar knew his father, the leader of the pirate group, would hunt him down until everyone in his path was dead.

A battle comes, and each thinks the other is dead. Daya chooses revenge, killing every pirate he finds. Alastar, free of his father at last, finds a loving community that embraces him.

Will they find one another again, and if they do, will they discover they weren’t truly strangers after all?

kinksMistakes aren’t supposed to feel this good…

I learned early on that pretty much everything in life is a scam, and love’s at the top of the list. Easy to fake, maximum payout, and people just never stop falling for it. Watching my mom break hearts and empty bank accounts as we bounced from house to house taught me just how dangerous feelings could be. That’s a whole lot of hassle I don’t need.

These days, I stick to three basic rules. I don’t take something just because I want it. I don’t ask for help, even if I need it. And I never look twice at a guy who has a bigger bank account than I do. I know where those things can get you, and it’s not anywhere I need to go. I’m perfectly happy being a dive bar rock star who can barely pay his rent, chasing the dream until my time or my sanity runs out. At least, I thought I was.

Until Brett showed up.

Another thing I don’t do is think about the past. All the people I can never look in the eye again. Who know just how ugly I really am deep down. The last person I need to get mixed up with is someone on that list. The last person I need to go breaking all my rules for is the cocky, spoiled brat who used to sleep in the room across the hall.

No matter how gorgeous he is now.
No matter how filthy he is in bed.
No matter how good it feels when he says all he wants in the world is me.

deviate“Must read debut of 2019!”

Falling for him was not part of the plan. 

It was the perfect plan. I would marry one of my closest friends and reap the financial rewards. He needed a savior right when I showed up on my white horse. We’d been friends for years, so now we’d be glorified roommates. No one had to know two straight guys decided to tie the knot. We agreed nothing would change. We’d just go on with our normal lives.

That was the plan until I started to notice more about him than just his laid back vibe. I started to look forward to coming home. I lived to talk books, art, and love. Suddenly, we were both feeling things that didn’t make any sense. We didn’t date men. We had to make a decision – act on the attraction or try to pretend it wasn’t there.

One thing about perfect plans – sometimes you have to deviate.
