Blog Tour~ TEMPTATION BY STEVE GENIS

TEMPTATION BY STEVE GENIS BLOG TOUR 22nd October to 31st October 


    Hosted By Fallen For Books

SYNOPSIS 
Temptation (Book 2)

Life couldn’t get any more complicated for Rick. He's going through adolescence and coming to terms with his sexuality, which he hides from his parents.


Meet Mr Devereaux, Rick's PE and French teacher who Rick can't stop thinking about. To complicate matters even more, Mr Devereaux is married to the principal of the same school.


As Rick comes to terms with being a young homosexual man, he fantasises about what it would be like to be with an older man. After sneaking into his teacher's office and almost getting caught out, Rick realises that his fantasies and urges are beginning to take over his life.


One night, at dinner, Rick's father comes home and reveals some news that sends shockwaves through Rick. His father has just received a promotion at work and has been offered to relocate to London, England for one year, with all expenses paid.


Moving to London would mean that Rick would be away from his friends and Mr Devereaux and ultimately, he tries to convince his father to allow him to stay in Australia and live with relatives while he and his mother move to London. His father refuses, leaving Rick no choice but to pack up his life and go with them.


When they arrive in London things are far from easy for Rick. After finally settling into a new English school, Rick makes some new friends including Nate, who is openly gay.


Together Nate and his friends convince Rick to go to a local bar. There he meets Jared, the owner of the bar, who is drop dead gorgeous, gay and he happens to be an older man.


Rick starts spending a lot of time at the bar on weekends with his new friends, and soon, sparks fly between Jared and Rick.


With Mr Devereaux on the other side of the world, Rick has finally found another older man who happens to be gay, but is he the older man that he wants?


Rick's temporary life in London is cut short when he suddenly becomes seriously ill and must return to Australia to make a full recovery before he can return back to school. However, it takes Rick longer than anticipated to recover from his illness and unfortunately, having missed out on too much school, he must repeat the school year when he fully recovers, making him the oldest student in his class.


Will Rick finally have a chance with Mr Devereaux?


Temptation is the second book in The Obsession Series, and a prequel to Obsession.

EXCERPTS 

EXCERTS FROM OBSESSION

‘What’s your first name, Sir?’ I asked.
He looked at me and smiled.
‘It’s Jacques,’ he said in that accent of his.
‘Jacques,’ I repeated.
‘I hope you don't mind me asking sir, but do you have any children?’

‘Well, there is nothing for me back in London so I thought maybe I’d start a new life here in Australia, you know, make a fresh start and all that jazz.’
My heartbeat was racing, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. ‘Are you serious?’ I asked him, horrified.
‘Yes.’
‘Jared you’re a fucking idiot.’ That's all I could say.
‘Excuse me?’ he replied, completely flabbergasted.
‘Sorry, but you are, you gave up a perfectly good life in London for what? Why, Jared, why would you do something like that?’

‘What ze fuck are you doing, Rick?’ he asked me, obviously shocked.
‘I’m sorry, I really am. I don’t know what came over me,’ I said as I leant forward and kissed him again.

‘I’ve been wanting to this body for the past five years and now I finally get the chance.’ I started sucking again.
‘You know you were right about one zing.’
‘What’s that?’
‘You definitely can give a better blow job ‘zan my wife,’ he said as I placed his cock in my mouth and started sucking again. ‘Now I know what you’ve really been doing all ‘zose times you missed class,’ he continued.

‘Hey Kyle,’ I heard one of them ask. It was Josh’s voice,
‘Yeah?’ replied Kyle.
‘Do you reckon Rick’s gay?’
I froze as I sat there with my pants still down to my ankles listening to what they were saying. I suddenly looked down and realised I had left my bag on the seat outside. My heart sunk.
‘What?’ I heard Kyle reply.
‘Why would you say something like that?’
‘Well, just something I saw the other day at camp, that’s all,’ Josh said, as the two of them continued to urinate at the urinal.
‘What did you see?’
‘Well, while we were all in the main hall playing pool, I walked outside to go and use the toilets. I looked over and saw, Rick looking through the door to the bathroom in the cabin.’
‘So?’ Kyle replied as I heard him zip up his pants and flush the urinal.
‘He had his pants down to his ankles and he was jerking off.’ Josh finished and he, too, zipped up his pants and flushed the urinal.

Morgan Bentley is a bastard. Always was and always will be.
At least that’s what Matthew Hopkins thinks. Unfortunately, Morgan is also a brilliant law student, and easily eclipses Matthew, academically and socially.

Project X
Cory has received the chance of a lifetime in the form of an internship with ITM—Information Technology and Medicine—the prestigious research company where Morgan’s father is the CEO. Too inquisitive for his own good, the naturally curious Cory stumbles on a deadly secret inside of ITM. What he has learned will tip the balance of everything, but for good or bad?

What is Morgan’s involvement?
Matthew has to sort fact from fiction, friend from foe, as his world is turned upside down and inside out, and nothing can be the way it was.

To me it is a fresh story, well, in my little m/m world. The author paints a great picture in the law and science world. I could see all these debates going on, and picture an actual science lab, I felt like I was really there.
You think it's going to be all sci-fi, but it really wasn't. I thought maybe it would get all Spidey, super secret lab, again... it didn't, well...not all the way. By that I mean, he isn't a super hero/villain, though there is super secret labs. 
It was a "feels" story with lots of angst and indecision. The characters had lots of growth, mainly Matthew. He was, to me, kind of a jerk in the beginning. When he finally "came around" though, it was wonderful. Morgan's father also did a lot of growing, probably the most through the whole book. I really thought the worst of him and I wanted to reach into the book and shake the hell out of him!! In the end though, I do believe he was redeemable. 
I love a good GFY story, and this one we get our HEA.



About the author

Nephylim was born into a poor mining family in the South Wales Valleys. Until she was 16, the toilet was at the bottom of the garden and the bath hung on the wall. Her refrigerator was a stone slab in the pantry and there was a black lead fireplace in the kitchen. They look lovely in a museum but aren’t so much fun to clean.
Nephylim has always been a storyteller. As a child, she’d make up stories for her nieces, nephews and cousin and they’d explore the imaginary worlds she created, in play.
Later in life, Nephylim became the storyteller for a re enactment group who travelled widely, giving a taste of life in the Iron Age. As well as having an opportunity to run around hitting people with a sword, she had an opportunity to tell stories of all kinds, sometimes of her own making, to all kinds of people. The criticism was sometimes harsh, especially from the children, but the reward enormous.
It was here she began to appreciate the power of stories and the primal need to hear them. In ancient times, the wandering bard was the only source of news, and the storyteller the heart of the village, keeping the lore and the magic alive. Although much of the magic has been lost, the stories still provide a link to the part of us that still wants to believe that it’s still there, somewhere.
In present times, Nephylim lives in a terraced house in the valleys with her son and her two cats. Her daughter has deserted her for the big city, but they’re still close. The part of her that needs to earn money is a lawyer, but the deepest, and most important part of her is a storyteller and artist, and always will be.

BLOG TOUR ~ Taming Ryder by Nicola Harken




Taming Ryder-smashwords_1800x2700
Book Title: Taming Ryder (Souls of the Knight, #2) 
Author: Nicola Haken 
Genre: M/M Romance 
Release Date: September 2014




You met Ryder Richardson in Being Sawyer Knight. Now, this is his story. I’ve done it. I’ve stuck a whopping two fingers up at my parents, I’ve made a name for myself as one of the world’s biggest porn stars and I’ve finally found a family I belong in. Life is amazing. I get paid to do all my favourite things. Fuck. Party. Travel the world. What’s not to love? And then he comes along. Mason George – Back Door Studio’s newest exclusive model and the guy who has the potential to either fuck it all up, or take me on the best ride of my life. ~ Ryder I’m desperate. I’ve got nothing and nobody left. Entering the daunting world of adult entertainment is less of a dream and more of a necessity. Signing as Back Door Studio’s latest model has the ability to either ruin or make me, but I made a vow at my first audition never to let myself regret it. I continue to question myself each day, but no amount of what’s, why’s or what ifs will change where I am or where I’m heading. Am I strong enough to do this? To embrace it? To enjoy it? I have no idea. The only thing I’m certain of, is that if anyone can teach me who I’m supposed to be, it’s Ryder Richardson. ~ Mason “Because the most exciting things in life always happen via the back door”






It's official! I'm a Nicola Haken SLUT!!
She has made a true fan out of me.
I'll admit, the beginning of the first book was a little "rough" for me, but about maybe 25-30% in, I finally got the feel for her and it was smooth sailing from then on. I had NO problems with this book...at.all.

Ryder, the beautiful porn star, has many internal demons and doesn't ever plan to get close to anyone...until Mason George.
They have a rough go for the first few months, and I can't blame Ryder, given his past. He has been through so much, and no one he's willing to share it all with, not even Elle.

His journey through emotional freedom is just that, emotional...I can't tell you the # of times I had tears in my eyes. You can feel is pain through the pages, and THAT is what makes me a Nicola fan!!



Mason has a past in his own rights, but he is always the rock, he is built for these kinds of things, and its just what Ryder needs. I love the relationships Mason develops as well with the other characters, especially Matt ((and ooooh I can't wait for HIS story!!!)) 

And of course Jake and Sawyer make cameos, and Jake is as baddass as ever!! ;)

This book has humor, drama, shady pasts, and love & family, what more could you ask for?? Besides an amazing story, and well.... porn?? It is well executed! and I would 1-click ANYthing of hers in the future!

I give this book 4+ stars





What a roller coaster ride this book was,  I was constantly up and down with “the Feels”.  Loved beautifully broken Ryder the porn star.  We were given a little of Ryder in “Being Sawyer Knight” but I had no idea what kind of turmoil and pain Ryder was hiding under his carefree disguise.  


Mason George is the perfect match for our Ryder,  a man with strength and solid character.  The relationship build up was off the charts on the HAWT scale.  Looking forward to reading Matt’s story(Please, please with sugar on top?)


As a bonus Nicola, of course, gave us some more Sawyer and JAKE…...


I give Taming Ryder 4 ½  Stars!!!!!


This book was given to me by the author for my honest opinion.  Thanks Nicola Haven!




Nicola Haken
Author of the New Adult/Contemporary novels Missing Pieces, Saving Amy and the Take My Hand series, and m/m erotic romance Souls of the Knight series.
I live in Rochdale, England with my wonderful family and when I'm not playing with my imaginary friends I can usually be found looking after my four adorable (sometimes!) children (six if you include the dogs, seven if you include the hubby!) or stalking gay porn stars! All in all I'm just an ordinary mum with an addiction to reading about hot book guys, writing about hot book guys, tattoos and Pepsi Max! Oh, and if my kids ever ask... I moonlight as the Pink Power Ranger ;-)



 “Perfect! You’re getting into the spirit faster than I thought you would.” “Why’d you say that?” “I just get the feeling this isn’t your first choice sometimes. The porn I mean.” Mason’s eyebrows furrowed, his eyes narrowing as he contemplated my words. “Maybe it’s not. But I chose this, and as with every other job I’ve ever had I will give it my everything. To say I’m doing this because I’ve no other choice, like I’m being forced into it or only doing it because I’m desperate is disrespectful to both the industry and to me.” “Hey, that’s not what I meant,” I said genuinely, worried I’d offended him. “Oh I know you didn’t. I just wanted to put it out there, that’s all. I don’t know many people, but of those I do I know they’ll judge me for this when they find out. Too many people assume going into this industry means we’re either damaged, desperate or fucking whores who deserve to be seen as nothing more than a walking fuck hole.” “Well fuck ‘em. Anyone who doesn’t see you for who you are isn’t worth knowing. We’re all in it for different reasons, and those reasons are no one else’s goddamn business. It’s just a job. A fucking great job, but still a job nonetheless.” “You really think it’s a great job?” “Sure I do! I love sex, and I get to fuck hot guys for a living. Who wouldn’t love that?” “But it’s different, no? I know I’ve only done one scene, but it’s a whole different ballgame than when you’re intimate with someone.” “I don’t do intimacy, so I wouldn’t know.” “So, you’ve never had a relationship?” “No. Not something I’m looking for.” “You don’t think it’d work? Being in porn?” “It’s got nothing to do with the porn. A few of the guys are in relationships. Gio’s been with his guy almost a year and they’re still going strong. It’s just not something I want, regardless of the career I’ve chosen.” “You must get lonely though. We all do. Don’t you hope to find someone you can just… I don’t know, share things with one day? Be there for you?” “No,” I said curtly, hoping my tone would be enough to stop him probing further.

Take To The Sky by Gregory Jonathan Scott

Hello Everyone!

I’m so excited to share with you Take To The Sky by Gregory Jonathan Scott. Today is the Official Release Day and we want everyone to share in the Excitement.

Kellan Cover Front JPG PUB (1) The Book Description

An angelic romance that’s Powerful, Suspenseful, Sexy, Uniquely Erotic, and Romantic. In a secret Michigan Laboratory, an experiment developed a superior creation that was anticipated but not expected. He was the ultimate conception, a core life-being merged with avian. He was born with a gift, a rare one; the ability to fly. His wings instinctively brought out the urge in him to fly, and Kellan's need to be free became his obsession. When the dark, swirling clouds loomed one night, Kellan abandoned the place he had called home, taking to the sky in search of his freedom and to seal his heart that seemed incomplete. Because Kellan's secret was too great for anyone outside the institute to know about, TC unleashed genetically altered Maniacs to bring him back. Through independence, his amazing reality brought riveting adventures to a man he found and couldn't seem to live without. They get tangled with hair-raising suspense that adds heart-pounding tension to every attempt they make at living their unique affair. They faced uncertainty so hectic that staying together was the least of their challenges, and it caused many of their bouts with passion to spiral in and out of chaos. Along their frenzied path to survive, hidden secrets surface about Kellan, prompting each move they make in order to truly set him free. Could Kellan's one true love and passion to fly be the death of him? It's a magnificently inventive adventure of menace, romance, and extreme erotic pleasures.

An Excerpt

Kellan breathed on Neil’s chest, his breath warm until he licked at his left nub, and then slid his lips across his chest to the other. His tongue was hot on the sensitive points, producing a rushed pulse that made his erection throb.

Neil trailed his hands up Kellan’s body, from his hips to his shoulders and up his neck until he found the cleft where his skull meets his ear. He wrapped his hands around Kellan’s head, holding him in place with needy whimpers. His touch made Kellan’s wings expand; they fluttered and fanned the place, bringing cooler air to a very heated moment.

Kellan shifted his body between Neil’s legs, balancing on his elbows to hold most of his weight. Kisses traveled over Neil’s chest and ribs, traced the trail of hair running down his stomach, and then moved across his abdomen, from one hip to the other. Wing cooled air followed the heat of his wet mouth.

Neil groaned, heated and passionate as the covers slid away.

About the author:

Taylin Clavelli lives in the United Kingdom, about 15 miles south of Birmingham, and a short journey from the world famous Cadbury’s Chocolate factory. She’s married with children and loves her family with all her heart.
Her love of books has been a long standing affair, with Taylin liking nothing better than to lose herself in an imaginary world.
Until she met Lily Velden, she never considered trying her hand at writing. However, after talking ideas, Lily encouraged her to put pen to paper—or rather, fingers to keyboard. Since, with a few virtual kicks in the right place, she hasn’t stopped. Her confidence eventually led to her writing an original work for submission.
Her first published work was Boys, Toys, and Carpet Fitters, developed for the Dreamspinner Press Anthology – Don’t Try This At Home.
Now she absolutely adores immersing herself into the characters she creates, and transferring the pictures in her brain to paper, finding it liberating, therapeutic, and wonderful.
Outside of writing, her interests include; martial arts (she’s a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Taekwon-do), horse-riding, all of which facilitates her love of a wide variety of movies. Her action heroes include Jet Li and Tony Jaa—finding the dedication these men have for their art combined with their skill both amazing and a privilege to watch. If pressed, she’ll admit to thinking that the screen entrance of Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean – Curse of the Black Pearl, and Shadowfax in LOTR, to be the greatest screen entrances ever. Her all-time favorite movies are Star Wars and Lord of the Rings.
The simple things in life that make her day, putting a smile on her face are:
Laughter – especially that of her children.
The smell of lasagna cooking – it makes her mouth salivate.
The dawn chorus – no symphony ever written can beat the waking greetings of the birds.

Blue Moon II: This is Reality by A.E. Via


PRESENT

Title: Blue Moon II: This is Reality
Author:  A. E. Via
Release Date: 9/26/2014























I remember first talking with A.E. 
She asked if we had time to read and review her first book, Blue Moon. I immediately said yes for the opportunity, as we were just starting out ourselves. It was insta-love, just like Max and Angel. And of course, with that, gives you room to grow more love. She then asked if we would beta read for You Can See Me. Already loving her work, there was NO way we were saying no. 

There was already a "growth" in her writing. With every book, A.E. just gets better and better. She is like a fine wine, over time, its perfection. Every new book she writes, I keep saying "This is her best yet". That certainly holds true for Blue Moon 2. These guys were a fat favorite and I couldn't WAIT to get my hands on Hawk. She didn't let me down either. It was everything I thought it would be and more.

This book was so emotional and action packed. The characters and story line were just brilliant and I didn't want it to end. 
She had me on a roller coaster of emotions, happiness, fear, anger, but most importantly, love. 

We also get introduced to 2 new characters, and I am really hoping she considers a future book for them. I think they deserve a story, as they, and their order, are VERY intriguing. 

So A.E., I just want to congratulate you on yet another winner. You truly are an amazing author with fantastic stories and I can't wait for future books. You have fastly become a personal favorite, and I hope one day I get to meet you in person and, of course, get some book signage. I think that will be part of my Mecca LOL 


5 stars for me
