Try, by Ella Frank

Try – verb: to make an attempt or effort to do something or in this case…someone.

Sex. Logan Mitchell loves it, and ever since he realized his raw sexual appeal at a young age, he has had no problem using it to his advantage. Men and women alike fall into his bed—after all, Logan is not one to discriminate. He lives by one motto—if something interests you, why not just take a chance and try?

And he wants to try Tate Morrison.

Just coming out of a four-year marriage with an ex-wife from hell, a relationship is the last thing on Tate’s mind. He’s starting fresh and trying to get back on his feet with a new job at an upscale bar in downtown Chicago.

The only problem is, Tate has caught the unwavering and unwelcome attention of Mr. Logan Mitchell – a regular at the bar and a man who always gets what he wants.

Night after night Tate fends off the persistent advances of the undeniably charismatic man, but after an explosive moment in the bar, all bets are off as he finds his body stirring with a different desire than his mind.

As arrogance, stubbornness and sexual tension sizzles between the two, it threatens to change the very course of their lives.

Logan doesn’t do relationships. Tate doesn’t do men. But what would happen if they both just gave in and…tried?

Anthony, by Gabbi Grey


During my seven years as a social worker in Gaynor Beach, California, delivering orphaned twins to their unsuspecting father is the biggest challenge I’ve ever faced. These babies lost their mother and they need a loving parent, but is adorable Scott Wexler up to that challenge? Transferring custody is one thing—walking away is something entirely different, especially with the stress of Christmas bearing down on Scott too.


After escaping a miserable childhood, I’ve made a fresh start in California. I’m in charge at the Gaynor Beach Public Library, I love helping people, and I’m feeling like an actual functional human being. Then social worker Anthony Rodrigues shows up on my doorstep with twins I fathered through a sperm donation, and suddenly I’m responsible for two tiny lives. Accepting help from the gorgeous social worker is a no brainer—admitting I want him to stay is going to take a lot more courage.

This 74k word gay romance is a slow burn, mid-angst, instalove with a geeky librarian, a by-the-book social worker, adorable twin-toddler terrors, and a beleaguered cat named Crumpy.

Dealing in Death, by L.J. Hayward, narrated by Rowan Scott

Ethan Blade—assassin extraordinaire, cold-blooded killer, heartless monster, and . . . retiree?

I’ve spent my whole life dealing in death, efficiently eliminating targets while fighting to preserve a sense of self and morality, to avoid becoming as detached and ruthless as my siblings. I thought I had succeeded. Then I met Jack Reardon—contrary, handsome, forgiving, and far too good for the likes of me—and my life was tipped upside down. When he asked me to move in with him, he didn’t specify that I had to quit my job, but I wanted to—for myself, not for him. I should have known it wouldn’t be that easy.

My old instincts—“Ethan Blade”—are soon tempted out of retirement by a job offer I can’t afford to refuse and by an old hook-up of Jack’s he’d be a fool to refuse. While falling prey to my own temptation, Jack struggles with his. Which is precisely when the true danger exposes itself—one of my siblings with no such sense of self or morality. Only pain. And he is prepared to rain it down on me and Jack, unless I can square the Ethan Blade I want to be with the one I need to be, in time to save us both.

Help Me Remember, by Romeo Alexander

What would you do if you woke up injured and didn’t know who you were?

Well, that’s precisely what’s happened to me.

A hot stranger with white-blond hair and bright blue eyes says his name is Eric and claims mine is Dylan. Apparently, he was my best friend. Running into Eric felt weird, but so was waking up in an abandoned building, not knowing who I was. I’d fallen through the ceiling, and I’d been shot! I don’t remember anything else, but at least Eric wants to help me, and the chemistry between us is undeniable…I think.

It doesn’t take long to find out I’m not the man Eric remembers. There are things about me, things I can do, that don’t fit with the man he knew before. Worse yet, I have an ugly past, and it’s coming back bit by bit to bite me. Why are the Russian Mafia and the cops after me? I have no idea what kind of man I used to be, and finding out scares me, but now Eric is caught up in the chaos, and that’s unacceptable. Thank God he still believes in me…for now.

I don’t know how to fix this, especially when I don’t remember enough to know what’s going on. I know one thing for sure, Eric is starting to mean a lot to me, and I’m starting to desire things I shouldn’t. He’s all I have right now, so no matter what happens, I’m getting us out of this mess, one way or another.

That I promise.


A bisexual, friends-to-lovers suspense romance, Help Me Remember will keep you on the edge of your seat. Join Dylan as he searches for answers and uncovers long-buried truths and a passion far hotter than he expected. Will Dylan find a way to escape the Russian mafia’s clutches and find his happily ever after, or will he and his lover end up dead?
