Three Rivers Academy will be a fresh start for Robbie Kowalski who leaves behind the hated nickname Lummox because his old school couldn’t see past his large, clumsy size.  The son of a carpenter, Robbie’s obtained a partial scholarship with excellent grades and impressive science projects so that he can attend the affluent high school.

 

Coming from a family of lawyers and high achievers Brent Kenson is well aware of what’s expected of him.  Unfortunately for him, Brent would rather spend every waking hour at his uncle’s ranch, Blue Heron Acres, where they raise and train valuable show horses.

 

A teacher pairs the two teens for an assignment and the boys begin to connect as friends.  Robbie accepted his sexuality years ago, though it’s something Brent’s having a harder time grappling with.  Curiosity has them taking that first step of kissing on a visit to the ranch.  As the days pass their friendship deepens, but it’s too soon for Brent to share secrets that are tearing him apart.  Rob will need all the help he can get to catch Brent before he falls too far and makes a decision no one can live with.

 

Sire takes an excellent look at teenage issues where angst and drama go hand in hand with joy and harmony.  On the cusp of manhood, sexuality and family expectations weigh heavily for Brent and Rob.  A tough, taut plotline leads the main characters on a rough personal journey.  Emotionally intense Sire doesn’t pull any punches, yet in the end manages to shine.  This standalone story is a welcome addition to the series.

RAINBOW OVER CEDARWOOD by Megan SlayerRainbow over Cedarwood by Megan Slayer
Series: Single Father Society #3
Published by Loose Id Genres: Contemporary, MM

Born and raised in Cedarwood Ashley Willis has had his full share of heartache.   Dad walked out years ago and his mother refused to accept his sexuality.  As an adult Ash was able to get his teaching degree and had a child with his lesbian best friend.  Wyatt was a joy to both of them.  Life was finally running smoothly until Danica was diagnosed with cancer and lost her battle far too soon.  Too make matters worse his boyfriend Lane refused to help the grieving single father and abandoned him.

 

Living in a small apartment with a six year old isn’t ideal, but it’s the best Ash can do on an art teacher’s salary.  A sudden shift in his mother’s attitude is the start of better things for both Ash and Wyatt.  She insists on making amends for her past behavior.

 

Another change occurs when the owner of Cedarwood Diner makes a move on Ash.  Extremely gun shy after being burned so badly by Lane, he backs off from Colt Harrison’s advances.  It’s a good thing Colt is willing to go that extra mile for the timid teacher and his cute son because there’s definite chemistry once Ash is willing to let loose.

 

Their relationship has barely started when a group of town bigots target Colt and cause trouble at the diner.  It’s time for Ash to decide what he wants in life.  To make a stand for the man who’s opened his heart.

 

A pleasant blend of drama and sensuality, Rainbow Over Cedarwood is a charming romance with a sexual kick.  Emotional angst binds Ash and Colt in the beginning, but healing love flows as Rainbow Over Cedarwood evolves.  The characters are engaging and well written, their issues realistic, and as for the bigots they add another layer to the story, albeit an obnoxious addition. A slice of normal life.

LONE WOLF AND HIS COOL CAT by Susan LaineLone Wolf and His Cool Cat by Susan Laine
Series: Pariah Pack #2
Published by Siren-BookStrand Genres: MM, Paranormal

Wolf shifter gamma Silas Donovan takes his responsibilities towards the pack’s security very seriously.  He’d rather not leave their safety in another’s hands, but when the Alpha asks for a personal favor Donovan reluctantly agrees to a bodyguard job.

 

The world’s top model is none other than Asian golden cat shifter Aran Aquino.  Plans have been made for a fantastic photo layout centered on Aran on Fregate Island in the Seychelles where the Banyon Hill Estate is the only sign of modern life on the entire island.

 

After long flights and hours of boat travel everyone finally arrives on the island.  Donovan is there to protect the model from possible threats though the only people there are Aran’s own entourage and the boat crew.

 

When Donovan is introduced to Aran the wolf shifter is pleasantly surprised to find his charge isn’t the stuck up brat he expects to meet.  He also realizes that he’s found his mate in the golden cat shifter.  Protecting Aran is going to prove easier than figuring out how the two will blend their lives.  Canine and feline mates should be interesting to say the least.

 

The Pariah Pack returns with another new tale.  Lone Wolf and His Cool Cat brings unlikely mates Donovan and Aran together in this sexy suspense story.  Watch the sexual sparks fly between the wolf and his cat.  All in all the storyline follows along as expected with tense moments from an unexpected foe at the climax.  Lone Wolf and His Cool Cat has a tropical locale, hot loving, and a pair of agreeable characters.

Series: Pariah Pack #1
Published by Siren-BookStrand Genres: MM, Paranormal

Alpha Max Wolfe is in charge of an unusual pack.  His people are cast offs, the misfits that other packs threw out or those who survived the decimation of their own pack. They have bonded together with the wolf shifter as their leader.  Now passing the century mark Wolfe is a successful bounty hunter who also dabbles in racing for extra income.

 

After a recent race Wolfe caught a scent in the crowd that had to have been his mate.  When he tried to chase the scent down he caught sight of a young man but somehow lost him.  Once he picked up the scent again Wolfe tracked down Peter Bennett, a rabbit shifter who saves abused animals when he’s not working at an animal shelter.

 

Of all the cosmic twists of fate – pairing a predator to prey as mates.  Wolfe’s inner animal is driving him to consummate their relationship, to bond forever.  As for Peter he’s skeptical that they can work things out.  He’s not sure they can ever find common ground and asks Wolfe to wait, to let them get to know each other before making the ultimate commitment.  After all they only get one mate in a lifetime. Patience, Wolfe, patience.  Surely it’s not too much to ask.

 

Wolfe and His Bunny charmingly questions what fate was thinking matching a wolf and a rabbit.  Time after time readers see Wolfe stumble during his attempts to court Peter who proves to have a great deal of patience.  Each makes mistakes, sometimes big mistakes.  What sets Wolfe and His Bunny above other books is that Wolfe and Peter are willing to keep trying.  Neither throws in the towel on love.  Through false starts and speed bumps Wolfe and His Bunny triumphs.
