Jeff is having a hard time adjusting to life as a civilian after his five year stint in the Navy, but Jeff is already setting himself up to work in the Corpus Christi DEA office. Still, living in a boarding house and eating chili every night is getting old and making him miss the regulated life that he had while living on base. One night Jeff decides to go out driving until he finds something different – but he never expected to land in a gay bar that has Hunter, one of the most stunning men he has ever seen, singing. Jeff is feeling lust at first sight – but will he have the nerve to act on it?

 

Corpus Christi is a funny and sexy story about lust turning into love. Jeff is young and inexperienced, but when he lets his hair down with Hunter things heat up and get steamy in a second’s time. Hunter, being older and more experienced, takes great delight in introducing Jeff into the wonders of passionate sex. Sean Michael did a wonderful job of bringing to life men who will enjoy the wonderment and passion of new love especially when neither Jeff nor Hunter were looking for it. Corpus Christi is a great read full of steamy sex and tingly feelings of new love. Pick it up you won’t regret it!

From the day he was taken from his hometown and brought to the city, Palace Scribe Cassian has done everything possible to keep a low profile.  Cassian does not want to be brought to the attention of either King Marius the Magnificent or his Head of Security Phrixus.  To garner their favor is not desirable as far as Cassian is concerned since both men are without conscience – cruel and vicious.

 

Whenever possible Cassian uses his free time to go camping in the nearby forest, where he can enjoy the majestic scenery and the solitude.  Unfortunately his love of camping backfires because the King and Phrixus know of his trips to the mountains and intend to send him there as bait to catch an elusive firebird.

 

With no way to avoid the King’s command Cassian journeys into the forest never realizing that the creature he is tasked to ensnare is an intelligent being from another world.  Meeting the firebird, Arturri changes everything.   Saving Arturri from the King and Phrixus is all that matters, but how?

 

Firebird embarks on a fanciful, sensual journey with intense drama along the way.  Clever twists and turns add excitement to this tale as well.  More than it seems at the start, Firebird is a romantic, exhilarating adventure.

Indiana native Evan Walker had one goal in mind when he traveled to Hollywood. Evan was determined to locate his very own dead beat father and make him pay all the back child support owed to his mother. The years of watching his mom work three jobs to raise Evan while wearing herself into the ground were over, but at least she’d have some retirement money when he made his father pay up.

 

To support him while he searches Evan gets a job working for studly actor Cree Radek as an assistant. The surly thespian tends to go through assistants as quickly as starlets go through money. Whether the two want it or not sparks fly and then clothes fly, off that is. Neither is willing however to tell the other how they feel. Evan already thinks that tinsel town is full of bloated egos and little else while Cree’s forgotten honest dialogue as opposed to a script. One thing’s certain, saying nothing will be the worst mistake of both their lives.

 

Tunnel vision and stubborn souls almost ruin a true romance in Acting Out. Hot men, hot sex, and miscommunication are the key ingredients to this enjoyable story. Acting Out highlights a pair who is definitely meant to be together even if they fight the truth right in front of their eyes.

Once upon a time Ryan Fenmore was a struggling actor who scrounged for grocery money and worried about paying his rent. Nowadays, renamed Ryan Pierce has his name above the movie title and has an accountant pay all the bills. Known as the American heart throb, Ryan needs a bodyguard to fight off the women. If only they knew that women do absolutely nothing for him when he’s having sexual fantasies and that must remain Ryan’s dirty little secret according to his agent. It would kill his career as the hot stud if anyone knew he’s gay. As long as Ryan is willing to live like a monk everything will be fine.

 

Answering the phone early one morning Ryan quickly realizes that the caller, Dar Phillips thinks he’s called his best friend Brett Shackley. Thinking fast Ryan pretends to be a regular guy instead of a movie star and ends up having an honest, refreshingly normal conversation with Dar.

 

Over the next few weeks Ryan begins a tentative phone friendship with the sexy voiced Dar who tells Ryan that he’s gay and happily out. As time passes Ryan is tempted to finagle a meeting with Dar, but how will he react to the actor as opposed to the man is the big question. Taking a chance could blow up in Ryan’s face and ruin his career if he lets his burgeoning feelings for Dar loose. But if Dar cares for Ryan, regardless of what he does for a living, it could be magic. One step, one look and it could all be over or turn into the best moment of Ryan’s life. Take a breath and live or crawl back into the dark for good.

 

Wrong Number, Right Guy pushes all the right buttons in this tender, sexy, and satisfying romance. An everyday openly gay guy hooks up with a leading man actor who’s deeply in the closet. Though the plotline is improbable it is the characters who make Wrong Number, Right Guy believable and worth reading. They are charming, engaging, and very human. A sweet love story with some steamy sex makes Wrong Number, Right Guy a very entertaining tale indeed.

Tristan is all about having fun as a college student, but he never forgets his family, especially since his father died.  Tristan is also trying to figure out why, after a long string of girlfriends offering as much sex as he wants, he still is vaguely unsatisfied.  So Tristan figures its time to take a walk on the wild side and try sex with a man and see if it’s any different.  So armed with The Plan, Tristan hits the neighboring Borders store and picks up just about every available gay title and sits himself down in the café to see what he can catch.  However, he didn’t count on Officer Helmet, the bane of his existence, being there and offering, through text messaging, color commentary on all the men that approach Tristan.  So as Tristan is ready to pack up and give up on The Plan netting him a walk on the wild side, he finds himself somehow being picked up by none other than Michael Truax, Officer Helmet!

 

Michael Truax has been trying to catch Tristan to give him another ticket and check him out now that he is legal.  But what started as a friendly and safe offer to introduce Tristan into the joys of gay sex, quickly turns into something more – especially since Michael has had his eye on Tristan for a long time.  But Tristan is nineteen, almost ten years younger than Michael, and Michael fears that Tristan will break his heart when he leaves to experiment with other men or go back to girls.  But despite the age difference and their different lifestyles, somehow Michael and Tristan manage to make it work – for a while.  Because when Michael is seriously injured on the job, Tristan isn’t sure he could survive the death of another person close to him.  Can Michael convince Tristan that he is worth the chance?

 

Tristan is so young and not really ready to settle down – even if he is head over heals in love, but Michael is old enough that that is exactly what he wants with Tristan.  Can Michael wait for Tristan to grow up a little and can Tristan trust that Michael will keep his heart safe?

 

I think that I have become a Z.A. Maxfield fan for life!  Crossing Borders is a funny, sensual, romantic read which is, of course, scorchingly hot.  Tristan and Michael pack so much emotion and sensuality into each and every encounter that you share their impatience when waiting for them to be together again.  Tristan is young, impulsive, impetuous and so completely charming and loyal that you will be charmed by him on his very first appearance, but the strongest trait that makes Tristan an unforgettable character is his complete earnestness about himself and what he wants.  Michael is old enough to be cautious and experienced enough to guide Tristan during his exploration of his desire for men.  But when love comes into the equation, Michael will steal your heart completely as he oh so carefully reveals this truth to Tristan and waits with baited breath for Tristan’s reaction.  These two and their story are so memorable and compelling that I can almost guarantee that you will be reading their story more than once and eagerly awaiting Z.A. Maxfield’s next book.  Crossing Borders is the perfect read when you are looking for a great romance that will heat you up, melt your heart and wring a tear or two before it’s over.  I Joyfully Recommend Crossing Borders, it’s a book that will keep you up well into the night because you will want to finish it all in one sitting and you will resent all intrusions that pull you away from Tristan and Michael.  Get Crossing Borders by Z.A. Maxfield today, you won’t regret it!
