The Silver Dragon, by Ellis Colton

Can an old crush lead to new love?

Teo Marquez attends an after-school karate program with his best friend at their junior high in San Bonita, Texas. It’s challenging, but also totally fun, so Teo signs up for more classes at the Silver Dragon, the local dojo. While Teo loves his karate classes, he becomes silently smitten with a gorgeous teenage assistant there, Mr. Eklund. But before Teo gets the nerve up to even say hello to his crush, his family moves away and Teo’s dreams are shattered.

Six years after moving to California, Teo returns to San Bonita as a transfer college student and rekindles some old friendships. He decides to take karate again when he learns that his old crush, Lucas Eklund, is now the sensei at the Silver Dragon! Adult Lucas is even more handsome than Teo dreamed of, and he returns Teo’s interest. There’s one problem–Lucas is deep in the closet. Teo thinks he can handle it, but Lucas’ personal dragons might be stronger than Teo anticipated.

His Heart Knows, by Riley Long

People fall in love with their best friends all the time. But for me, the circumstances of this unrequited attraction are even more agonizing.

I am gay.

My best friend, Sawyer, is not.

Since we were fifteen, I’ve harbored this torturous crush. Now, as we both enter our thirties, it seems time to resign myself to the fact that nothing is going to come of it. Ever.

Or so I thought…

One night, a bottle of gin and a little uncharacteristic self-pity were all the inspiration I needed to launch into a ramble about being alone because I’m bad at everything – even kissing. Determined to prove me wrong, Sawyer decided to shut me up with a kiss.

I know he meant for it to be innocent.

Turns out it was anything but.

Sparks flew as we unlocked a side of Sawyer he never knew existed. Now, more than anything, he wants me by his side forever. But this realization comes with its own set of obstacles. Can we learn to lean on each other as we build a future together? Or will the stresses of our day to day lives tear us apart?

Kiss My Axe, by RM Neill

Perry

You know that saying, keep your friends close and your enemies closer? Well, whoever said that never had the misfortune of meeting Roman Auclair.

Sure, he’s sexy and wears a corset like nobody’s business, but he’s arrogant, entitled and so damn judgemental he should sit on the Supreme Court.

I’d rather sleep with a porcupine than bunk with him.

But I promised my brother I’d help and I’m a man of my word.

It’s not like falling in love with my complete opposite is possible anyway.

In fact, I’m pretty certain I’ll always be single.

Roman

You know that saying about stereotypical frat boys? Young, dumb and full of—yeah, that one. Nobody wears that dated cliché more than Perry Attwater.
Except he’s a good 15 years removed from college.

Sure, he fits every one of my lumberjack fantasies, but the man doesn’t know the difference between lace and linen. He’s crude, messy, and unashamed about his lack of fashion sense.

I’d rather use my best fabric scissors to chop wood than share a space with him.

But I promised my best friend I’d make our shared accommodations work.

It’s not like I’ll fall in love with a plaid loving mountain man. Love is for losers.

And I always win.

CW: mention of parental death

Kiss My Axe, is book two in the Maple Mountain Lodge Series and can be read as a stand alone. It’s low angst, frenemies to lovers, forced proximity and snark for days.
This story features an ex police diver who can’t stop helping people, a former male model turned lingerie designer in need of an attitude adjustment, grapefruit slices as a love sign, and the absolute worst timing to say I love you.

Coaching Prince Charming, by Hayden Hall

He’s my first and only crush. He’s my new coach. Oh, and he was once my dad’s teammate and best friend.

I’ve been in love with Nate Partridge since I can remember. Under my mattress, there has always been a stack of magazine covers with his bare torso and a pearly smile. But that’s about the extent of it.

I can never have Nate Partridge. He is a straight guy and twenty years my senior. Neither of which is a dealbreaker for me, but he disagrees.

When a hockey accident forces him to retire, he takes the freshly vacant job of coaching the Arctic Titans. And my life takes an unexpected turn for the better.

Nate is the only person who has ever truly understood me. Where my father’s ambition dictates my every waking moment, Nate’s kindness and compassion make me feel like there’s more to life than hockey. Dad’s disregard for my passions makes Nate’s encouragement only sweeter.

And my crush reaches all new heights. Especially when I discover his deepest secret.

Nate Partridge is not straight.

But do I stand a chance? To him, I am nothing more than his old friend’s kid and a college freshman he’s in charge of training.

If I want Nate Partridge, it will take more than hope to make this real.

It’s time to shake things up in my life before I can make him mine.

Coaching Prince Charming is the seventh and final novel in the Arctic Titans of Northwood U series. It features an age gap, a forbidden relationship, a college hockey player falling for his coach, former best friend’s son, and a search for a purpose in life at nineteen and at thirty-eight. This novel can be read on its own, but it’s more enjoyable to read the entire series in the order of release.

Star Spanked, by Leighton Greene

Things are heating up fast—and neither of them want to get out of the kitchen…

Sebastian Fox, a British celebrity chef, flees the relentless English tabloids for the sunny shores of Los Angeles. As he plans the summer launch of his new culinary venture, the last thing he’s looking for is an entanglement—especially one that could make headlines.

But at the urging of an old friend, Sebastian indulges in his one passion other than food, and attends a special event…one that involves a lot more spice than his restaurant recipes.

Ezra Whitfield is a gorgeous male model who’s had enough of being nothing more than a pretty face. After an anonymous, intimate encounter with a dashing older man at an adults-only club, Ezra becomes intrigued by ideas of control, surrender, and caring discipline. But his mystery man vanishes before Ezra can learn his name, leaving him longing for more.

After Ezra charms his way into a job opportunity at a new restaurant, he’s taken aback to find Sebastian, his intriguing stranger, wearing the chef’s hat. Sparks fly in and out of the kitchen, and their age gap becomes the least of their worries as they whip up a recipe for love.

But not everyone is so happy about their new relationship…

Can Ezra and Sebastian overcome the odds, stamp out those sizzling rumors, and butter up an over-protective roommate?

Star Spanked is a delicious low-angst romance with a touch of boss/employee dynamics, a dash of discipline, and topped with an enticing 17-year age gap. Savor a deliciously satisfying ending without the bitterness of cliffhangers. While it’s part of a series, it can be tasted alone, but be prepared for a few familiar side dishes from previous books, who add a pinch of salt.

Rhuyin, by Mellanie Rourke

Rhuyin is a Soma, a shapeshifter created by the gods with one purpose: find his Mageian partner and Bond with them to protect them with his life. The problem is, no Mageian wants to bond with a Soma with a disability: Rhuyin is mostly deaf. He struggles with self-doubt in a society that expects perfection from its Somas. After being forced to remain on the sidelines while others search for their matches, he joins Omada, a suicide squad of Somas who have given up hope of finding their mates. He just can’t shake the face of the man with eyes like the deep blue sea and the heart of a warrior. When fate draws them back together, Rhuyin begins to think hope may not be lost after all.

Luke was born Lucien Alexus, Prince of Alexandria, but when his Mageian powers manifested he was disinherited and condemned to a life of slavery in the country’s infamous Legion. He, along with a contingent of Alexandria Mageians, has escaped to the country of Illyria, where they hope to build new lives in a free society. But Luke is struggling with the burdens of leadership: so many people look to him to help save them, protect them, lead them, and the Somas all look to him with the desperate hope that he will somehow solve the massive imbalance of Soma to Mageia ratio. The pressure is overwhelming. How can he save them when he can’t even save himself?

Then a young Soma who sparkling green eyes walks into his life…and into his heart. Together they can either save the Legionnaires enslaved in Alexandria…or doom them all.

Secret Fire, by Morticia Knight

The last time Daryl gave his heart away, it was stomped on and destroyed. Can a younger sunshine cop inspire a grumpy fire marshal to risk all for love?

Romance is not on Daryl’s list of things to do. As a matter of fact, the less people he’s forced to deal with, the better. Social interaction is overrated anyway, right? Too bad he can’t get the hot cop from his weekend softball league out of his dirty little fantasies.

Zach just sailed past thirty and is sick of meaningless hook-ups. But finding a decent guy he can click with seems impossible. When a friend suggests he give the surly fire marshal a try, Zach wonders if his buddy has been standing out in the Arizona sun for too long. No way is the ruggedly handsome, cranky Daryl potential relationship material.

Apparently, opposites really do attract, and after a bumpy start it seems as if the road to love is paved with sunshine and rainbows. Or is it?

A tragic fire, Daryl’s emotional fortress, and a whole lot of danger conspire to keep them apart, but Zach won’t give up without a fight. But first, he has to survive the threat of death staring him down…

Note: Secret Fire is the first novel in the steamy and exciting Uniform Encounters series. It was previously published under the same title with a different cover. You can expect a grumpy/sunshine romance between a cop and fire marshal, a ten-year age gap, and a dose of mystery/suspense. Grab your copy of Secret Fire for some scorching hot action now!

Forever Always, by Jacey Davis

For as long as I can remember, it’s been Riley and me against the world.

I knew Riley was mine to take care of and protect from the minute my dad introduced me to him and his mom as my new family.

For a while everything was perfect. And then that all changed.

Protecting Riley became more important than ever. I was the only thing between him and the wrath of Dad. I was the only person keeping a roof over his head and food in his belly.

I was the most important person in the world to him. And he was mine.

Nothing would ever change that.

We’re grown now, but still, I’d do anything for Riley. I’d gladly get my hands dirty to keep his clean. There wasn’t a line I wouldn’t cross for him. Even lines so forbidden I had no idea how he’d react if he ever found out. But it didn’t matter because it was Riley and me against everyone.

Forever.

Always.

Duke for the Summer, by Emily Spady
