Series: Microchips & Purity #2
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: MM, Science Fiction

It has taken everything to keep the people of Eden from tearing the city apart.  The human and cyborg population are at each other’s throats.  Trying to lead them all is the Guiding Light, Uriel, and his cyborg lover Raze.

 

The discovery of Uriel’s brother Noah, a clone, simply adds another layer of conflict.  Raze’s best friend and fellow cyborg Logan Maxfield is one of the few to distinguish between the brothers.  Maybe the fact that Logan is falling in love with Noah has something to do with it.

 

As the tension reaches a critical point it’s becoming apparent that Noah is dying, his cloned DNA is breaking down.  A doctor is doing what he can to find a cure, but so far he’s been unsuccessful in finding a cure.  It’s breaking Logan’s heart.  Noah wishes he’d had more time with the brother who needs his support more than ever.  He wishes he’d been able to spend more time with Logan who’s teaching him all about love.  The only option is a horrible choice.  Nothing is easy or simple in Eden.

 

Short-Circuit His Soul takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster. The characters are forced to make awful choices and terrible decisions.  It is their price for humanity in this strange future.  This complicated plotline and the complex characters beg the reader to follow this series in order to fully appreciate what is going on.  Once in a while the story loses focus between their unique religion and the characters but it’s only momentary.  Noah’s struggle as a clone is poignant.  The love Noah and Logan share is powerful.   A riveting drama, Short-Circuit His Soul challenges the reader to think.

WINTER’S WOLF by Tara LainWinter's Wolf by Tara Lain
Series: Tales of the Harker Pack #3
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: GLBT, Paranormal

Winter Thane has grown up in the wilds of Canada with mostly just his father being around, because his father left his pack in the states for some reason that Winter never knew.  Winter has always been more attracted to males rather than females, however, his father has drummed into him that wolves aren’t gay.  Now Winter and his father are headed back to their family’s pack in Connecticut so that Winter can hopefully find a mate—a female mate if his father has anything to say to it.

 

Matt Partridge is an FBI agent who has been working on cases in Connecticut and is trying to wrap up one last one, which is a bit harder as his partner isn’t with him anymore.  Matt is gay, but due to the FBI’s and the government’s attitude with gay agents, Matt has been very quiet about his sexual preferences.  That is, until the night he is getting a beer with friends and meets a man who brings out instant lust in Matt.

 

At first notice, Winter knows immediately that Matt is a man he wants.  It doesn’t take long for Matt and Winter to explode into a serious case of lust at first sight.  But issues on both sides have them keep that first incident just between themselves, and they go their separate ways. Winter goes on with his new life of trying to fit into a strange pack—one that definitely has gay wolves in it.  Along the way, Winter finds out information both about a coup that might happen in the Pack and information that Matt needs to help solve his latest case.  With Matt and Winter now working in close quarters, their feelings for each other can’t be avoided.  The questions are: Can they find a way to become a couple and have a future? And just how will the Pack deal with Matt and Matt with the concept of werewolves?

 

Take one semi-wild werewolf and put him together with one secretly gay FBI agent, mix in a pack that is split between the old way and the new ones, and a dangerous case, and you have one bumpy romance.  That is exactly what Winter and Matt face in Winter’s Wolf.  I already knew I liked Matt from his appearance in previous books, and it didn’t take me long to love Winter’s straight forward way of approaching life.  There were several times I wanted to smack Winter’s father, at least until more of his last few years with the Pack came out.  Then I had to laugh at how previous characters in the series were intertwined in this book.  I really enjoyed watching as Matt and Winter found a way to have each other and get their forever.  I will also say that there is one feisty grandfather that I really wanted to hug by the end of the book.  Winter’s Wolf is packed with passion and suspense with almost equal humor and danger elements, which made Winter and Matt’s journey to love one I loved from first page to last.

THE TROUBLE WITH MR. MIDWEST by T. NeilsonThe Trouble with Mr. Midwest by T. Neilson

ReviewedbyLisa

The latest rising young star in Hollywood to watch for is Riley Black according to the press and everyone who’s met him.  The press loves the Midwest American charm and the people he’s met know Riley is the real deal.  Behind the sweet demeanor is someone who faced adversity in childhood and came out on top, in part because of a loving mother and brother.  Riley is on the edge of major stardom because he’s genuine and good at his craft.  That acting talent has kept his sexuality hidden from his family and the press.

 

Enlisting at eighteen Evan Quinn Campbell’s only regret was leaving his childhood friend behind.  A stint in the military didn’t work out as planned and left Quinn a damaged soul who goes for weeks without being able to sleep.  One horrible decision repeats over and over in his nightmares and his waking hours.  If not for his C.O. Brandon, who followed him out of the service, Quinn figures he would be dead.  It is Brandon who hooks Quinn up with an unlikely job as a male escort back in the states.  At least it pays the rent.

 

At a big Hollywood party the last person Riley expects to run into is Quinn, who at first pretends to not know his childhood crush.  Little did the escort realize the feelings were returned, back then and now.  Riley isn’t out and Quinn doesn’t want to jeopardize the young star’s future by associating with a known prostitute.  The actor refuses to turn his back on a desperately broken man no matter the consequences.  This time the boy he loved, the man he will always love won’t disappear.

 

Racy. Tantalizing and complex.  An up and coming star with the sheen of innocence still surrounding him finds his future in the arms of a self destructive rent boy.  That’s The Trouble with Mr. Midwest.  Tinseltown hasn’t tarnished the shine from actor Riley Black who’s achieved his first big screen success.  Quinn on the other hand has demons who haunt him night and day.  Brought together by fate they embark on an extremely emotional roller coaster.  A romance wrapped up in chilling tale of absolution, The Trouble with Mr. Midwest is the complete package.  I Joyfully recommend The Trouble with Mr. Midwest.  Absolutely riveting.

SHADOWING MACE by Cheyenne MeadowsShadowing Mace by Cheyenne Meadows
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: MM, Paranormal

Alpha wolf Shadow is a true loner who prefers to work and live alone.  Older brother Ian is the only partner he can tolerate at the best of times.  But as Ian is away on another task for their father, the supreme Alpha Jonas, he’s been assigned fellow wolf shifter Mace as his new partner.

 

It’s difficult for Shadow to relinquish any control with Clear Sky Wolf Pack business.  The Alpha and Mace butt heads from the moment they meet, yet in all honesty the sparks between them aren’t strictly because of pack related problems.

 

Ironing out their issues soon evolves into sensual combustion that neither will back down from.  As Shadow comes to grips with his feelings for Mace the pair must also deal with an escalating situation within the pack.  Someone is sabotaging their businesses.  Simple pranks are becoming life threatening disasters. Shadow and Mace can figure out their relationship after they catch a shifter bent on revenge and murder.

 

Smoking hot love scenes ignite in Shadowing Mace for two stubborn, powerful shifters.  The sexual tension is off the charts for Shadow and his unexpected mate.  For additional spice the two ferret out clues as they search for a troubled shifter in this lively storyline.  Mace and Shadow emotionally stumble through the early days of their mating, though sexually they are a potent from the start.  An erotic treat, Shadowing Mace has a solid plotline and intelligent characters whose passion cannot be denied.

NIGHT VISION by Amelia BishopNight Vision by Amelia Bishop
Published by Dreamspinner Press Genres: MM, Paranormal

At one time Alex Rowler believed he’d marry David and they would eventually raise a family together.  Looking back there wasn’t one definitive moment that destroyed their love.   It simply slowly faded.  The fights and passionate make up sessions dwindled into fights and indifference.

 

As a Strige it is essential to feed on human emotions to survive.  Theron Antonopolis settled in suburbia and takes advantage of the outpouring of human passion, anger, and all the rest.  Each night Theron sits on his rooftop and enjoys whatever the neighbors provide.

 

Breaking things off with David is hard, moving out worse, but it’s for the best.  Soon after their breakup he meets Theron, his odd neighbor who seems to enjoy sitting on his roof.  Alex certainly isn’t ready for another relationship, though he appreciates Theron giving him space.  Something about the human draws the Strige.  Rebuffed at first Theron tries again.  Alex has no idea what life is about to hand him.  No idea whatsoever.

 

Night Vision takes a perfectly normal relationship story and turns it on its head.  The pace slowly builds.  Emotions smolder and flare.  The flames of Theron and Alex’s romance crackles with an exciting climax.  An enjoyable, original tale Night Vision doesn’t miss a beat.
