MY BODYGUARD by Derek AdamsMy Bodyguard by Derek Adams
Published by MLR Press Genres: Contemporary, MM

As the son of a crime boss Jeff Giovinazzo enjoys certain privileges others only dream about.  Going off to college and further away from his father’s business is something to fully embrace until he’s told a bodyguard will be shadowing him.

 

The bodyguard assigned to him is Vic Torres who grew up on the same property as Jeff.  The wealthy son went to an exclusive private school while the other boy attended public school.

 

Jeff is a natural fit on the campus, Vic not so much in his suit and tie.  Taking pity on him the college student takes his bodyguard in hand and dresses him more appropriately to fit in with the crowd.  Better clothed Jeff begins to notice Vic in ways his father wouldn’t approve.  Suddenly the lines between them feel erased.

 

An unlikely romance comes to fruition in this fast paced drama.  My Bodyguard brings together two unassuming characters because of their fathers’ positions.  Though both are pleasant, Jeff is so unkind and Vic unresponsive it’s a stretch to think they can ever get past their early days together in the college setting.  In the end they find their way to a sweet love story, but it’s a hard sell at times.

Raised in foster homes and then a group home as a teen, Davey Howell never got a break.  There wasn’t a helping hand or someone in his corner.  Nevertheless he graduated at the top of his class and became a paralegal for a successful law firm.  When his boss decides to go on sabbatical Davey is blindsided by the partner’s hatred for his boss who fire him without references.  Down to his last twenty and no prospects in sight hunger propels Davey to stupidity.

 

Genuinely happy his friends found their perfect submissive Jake Cohen would do just about anything to find someone for himself.  The situation’s gotten so bad that Jake is willing to ask his friend’s submissive club to help him find a partner in the lifestyle.

 

Apparently fate’s listening to Jake’s inner plea because a bungling pickpocket ironically turns out to be exactly right.  The thief will be the perfect partner for him in the BDSM lifestyle and professionally since Jake is an elite lawyer in NYC.  Now that Jake’s found his own submissive he figures the least the sub club can do is convince Davey.  With the sub club’s perfect record for love matches it’s easy.  At least it should be…

 

The eighth installment in the popular Indiscreet series features another exciting tale to enjoy in Jake’s Thief.  This time out a lonely Dom finds his other half in a quiet paralegal pickpocket.  Misunderstandings and naïve mistakes have Jake and Davey stumbling and falling before they find happiness together.  Fans of the series will love the return of the sub club and their Dom partners.  Unfortunately it is a big stretch to accept the outcome of their initial meeting.  A sub and Dom pairing, plus a lawyer and a paralegal makes it almost too neat and tidy.  Having said that Jake and Davey’s romance works, the BDSM is very light, and the humor is top notch.  All in all Jake’s Thief is pleasurable read.

As penance for the recent destruction he’d caused the goddess Danu decreed that Diego Sandoval journey the lands of the wild fae for several years.  He would take the time to accept and control the powerful magic within him more fully.  Of course his husband, the pooka Finn will accompany Diego on his travels.

 

When Diego and Finn return the human magician is somewhat overwhelmed by the enthusiastic welcome they receive from the sidhe.  Even though three years have passed Diego hasn’t quite forgiven himself for his actions.  They also discover that memories aren’t the only thing they’ve brought back.  A selkie by the name of Limpet who has a voracious curiosity left his family to follow them back.

 

Diego is trying to find a new niche within the Fae Collective and jumps at the chance to help when the Canadian government asks for their assistance.  Three college kids are being detained by a Middle Eastern government where they were studying.  The diplomatic mission should be a simple one as long as no magic is used.

 

They encounter problems from the moment they land starting with the discovery of a stowaway, Limpet.  It seems that the selkie has focused all his curiosity on one of the security detail, Theo Aguilar, a vampire Diego befriended back when his life went to hell.

There trip turns out to be a set-up.  No one will listen to the new ‘kid’ on the team who can track his mentor except for Limpet who will follow Theo anywhere he goes. It could be the best joke ever told…A vampire and a selkie playing hide and seek in the desert.  But it’s not a joke and time is slipping away.

 

Complex characters use their wicked skills on a wild adventure.  Immerse yourself in No Fae is an Island and enjoy all the twists and surprises throughout this thrilling tale.  The plotline is neatly split between the two sets of characters until they converge with exciting consequences.  Fans will love this latest fourth installment while new readers honestly should start at book one.  The cast is huge and rich with fascinating relationships, so start at the beginning and have fun.  No Fae is an Island is utterly charming from start to finish.  Absolutely captivating and Limpet is unforgettable.

Forced from his home and an inheritance once Sean Quinn tells his father he’s gay, the NYU college art student loses everything.  Starvation finally weakens Sean’s morals to the point where he agrees to become a rent boy with new friend Leroy.  Their plans go to hell however when a man Leroy calls ‘The Russian’ appears and Sean’s told to run and hide.  From the shadows the art student watches as his friend is gutted.

 

The killer finds his hiding place and injures him before Sean somehow manages to escape.  Running into the street he flags down a limousine of all things and comes face to face with Armand LeMarche, a businessman who controls the largest privately owned corporation in the U.S.  Of course, Sean has no idea just how important this man will be to him.  He doesn’t know that Armand is also the head Alpha of the North American werewolf council.  Sean certainly doesn’t know that he is Armand’s longed for mate finally found or that he has unknown gifts within him that will soon be set free.

 

Apparently Sean is much more than simply a poor art student, he may be the savior of the entire werewolf race. But before he can truly take his place at Armand’s side they must find the killer who has Sean firmly in his sights.  After all, a live witness isn’t a good thing to a murderer…

 

A sweetheart and a suave charmer meet and the sparks fly.  The delightfully entertaining His Omega hits all the right buttons to make Sean and Armand’s romance total enjoyment.  The main characters are hit with everything imaginable – a bigot, a killer, a kidnapper, a destiny, and still manage to enjoy a whirlwind love story.  So romance, drama, and suspense all wrapped up lovingly in His Omega.  The only complaint is that spell check or grammar mix-ups wasn’t used, at all.

Successful young Hollywood bucks Rick and Drew film sexy Dracula like commercials for a business called Vampires R Us.  After filming one night they ask as to what they are selling since the commercial is rather vague and doesn’t promote an actual product.  Nobody seems able to give them an answer but the paychecks are excellent so they drop the subject.

 

Filming the steamy ad gets their juices flowing so the guys indulge in some playtime in the studio shower.  Afterwards Drew invites Rick over to his apartment to split a pizza and continue what they started.  When the pizza boy arrives with dinner a stranger also announces himself from the balcony, on the 10th floor.  Someone certainly has a strange sense of humor.

 

A guilty pleasure comes to life in Vampires R Us.  Hot and heavy encounters blaze between Rick and Drew.  An additional unexpected twist gives Vampires R Us an extra hit of fun.  Light erotica with a sneaky wrinkle for the boys.
