Review: Waited So Long by J.M. Dabney

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Vibrant Promotions.
Waited So Long is a new standalone book from J.M. Dabney, and it's an M/M romance with elements of a May-December relationship and a Daddy-boy kink with a twist. Devon Hoffman has been in one committed relationship for nearly three decades, two of which were spent as a married couple, but when his husband files for divorce, Devon's at a loss as to how to start over again at forty-seven. The fact that he's been hiding his years-long desire to have a Daddy to discipline and love him is another reason he doubts he'll find someone he can be with. What Devon doesn't know, however, is that someone's been waiting for thirteen years to lay his claim on him, and that someone is none other than Bernard, his best friend's much twenty-eight-year-old son. Bern respected the fact that the man he loved was married, but when news of the divorce reaches him, Bern's ready to leave the m…

Release Blitz: Save the Date by RJ Scott & V.L. Locey

Save the Date (Harrisburg Railers #9) by RJ Scott & V.L. Locey Release Date: June 30, 2019
About Save the Date Ever since he first set foot in Harrisburg, Tennant’s life has been a roller coaster. Ups and downs too numerous to mention, hard knocks and championship rings. Through all of those monumental moments, one thing has been a constant for him, Jared Madsen. Now that their wedding day is drawing nearer, Ten is seriously considering eloping. He would, if not for his mother, his father, his brothers, the wedding planner, the guests, the cake, the press, and the team. Oh, and then there’s his best friend, who is vying for the job of ringmaster of the wedding circus. Would sneaking off during the night with Jared and skipping to the honeymoon part of the festivities really be all that bad?
When Jared proposed to Ten, he imagined a quiet wedding, on a beach somewhere, with family, and maybe the team. But life gets complicated with Ten’s warring brothers, a Russian goalie with a love o…

Review: My Other Half by S. Michelle

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via LesCourt ARC Team.
My Other Half is the debut release from S. Michelle, and it involves the forbidden relationship between twin brothers. Novella in length, the taboo element here is one many like to call "twincest". I have no qualms reading stories with a taboo nature; after all, one of my favorite books of all-time is Forbidden by Tabitha Suzuma. But the only thing that these two books share is that the main characters who fall in love with each other are siblings. This review and the rating, however, are based solely on my experience with and the merits of this S. Michelle book, and not in comparison with the Suzuma novel or any other story that involves this sort of forbidden relationship.

Thomas and Gabriel Carrington are twin brothers who are as close as any two siblings can get, but they also share that added element of being identical twins. They're each other's closest friend, sharing anything…

About Breaking the Habit He’s on a war path to fame.
And Levi Swain doesn’t care who knows it. The more people that know him, the better. As the hottest MMA rising star, opportunities are materializing out of thin air. When a wealthy sponsor approaches him, looking to have Levi cause a tabloid-worthy scandal, Levi only knows how to say yes. He didn’t come to war to lose.
Except he never counted on meeting Riley. The glam-shy bombshell who won’t touch fame with a ten-foot selfie stick. Levi planned on her ending up another notch on the bedpost, where every girl ends up. Instead, Riley is everything he wasn’t looking for. The artistic dark angel who can knock him out faster than a middleweight champion with just one glance.
Out here in Hollywood? He can have fame, or he can have true love.
But he can’t have both.
