No Take Backs, by Becca Seymour

Some things you can’t take back.

If you say those words, get caught glancing at his bulge, or share a heated kiss, it’s game over. The “no take backs” rule strikes, and there’s no way you can backtrack.

That’s the way it’s always been with me and Nate Griffin, my old best friend who thought he could change the rules.

It doesn’t matter that time and distance have pulled us apart. I’ve finally figured myself out and yanked my head out of my backside. Now, if only I can drag myself out of the closet and be the man I want to be for Nate…

But I’m a pro basketball player who has no desire to be a poster boy. Not only that, Nate and I don’t even live in the same country.

Nate, big-hearted guy he is, takes it all in his stride, and I can’t help but wonder if just maybe he’s too good for me. But hell if I can resist him.

It all boils down to: Do I want to take anything back when it comes to Nate Griffin?

Wreaking Havoc, by Grae Bryan

Sascha has always felt powerless, the weak baby of a cruel family. But that’s fine. He has his looks, his ample allowance, and a smattering of one-night stands to keep him busy. But when Sascha’s oldest brother offends the wrong people, Sascha finds himself in hiding with a target on his back. And when poking around in his temporary home leads to accidentally summoning the hottest demon Sascha could ever imagine, he has to ask himself: does he want to feel powerless anymore?

Kai has been waiting centuries for a summons. When he’s at long last brought to the human realm for his final contract, he expects to find another warrior hungry for battle and bloodshed. Instead, he finds himself bound to a saucy, scared mobster princeling who can’t stop looking at Kai like he’s dinner. It isn’t long before Kai decides that—for once—he wouldn’t mind staying exactly where he is, with a certain human for his mate.

But Sascha isn’t used to anyone sticking around, let alone caring for him in any real way. It’s up to Kai to convince Sascha he can give him so much more than protection. He just has to deal with those pesky enemies—and Sascha’s own meddling family—first.

Wreaking Havoc is a heated MM paranormal romance with a HEA and no cliffhanger. It contains a spoiled (or is it traumatized?) mafia prince with trust issues, the cocky warrior demon who wants nothing more than to pamper him for eternity, a stifling family, elusive enemies, and the frustration of never getting to finish a manicure.

Will, by Kerry Kilpatrick

What could go right with a social worker Daddy and an injured boy?

Will
As a social worker on Almstead Island, I’ve come to understand the hidden battles people face. But seeing Beckett injured shook me. Behind his tough exterior, there’s a vulnerability that tugs at my heartstrings. I want to be his daddy, not just to fulfill a fantasy, but to provide the comfort and security he so desperately needs.

Beckett
The injury didn’t just hurt my body; it exposed the emotional bruises my family has inflicted on me since childhood. Their constant criticisms and jokes have worn me down even more than my job as a cop in our small town. Will’s kindness and understanding offer a reprieve from the suffocating weight of their judgment. I want to be his boy for longer than a fling.

Beckett needs to drop his guard and Will needs to find the line between nurturing and smothering. Both of these men want what the other is offering, but they’ll have to get out of their own way to make it happen.

This is Book One of the Almstead Island: Newcomer’s Club. The series is interconnecting, but each story can be read as a standalone. This novel involves a Daddy/boy dynamic, but no age play. Please know that there are instances of emotional abuse in this story. You can find more information in the forward matter. There is a HEA for this couple and no cliffhanger, but some character redemptions will take longer than others.

Phoenix Mate, by TJ Nichols

What happens when the Chief of Security wakes up as the familiar to a man who doesn’t know he’s a witch? Chaos.

Quentin Silverbrook has never really belonged anywhere. At fifteen, his parents divorced, and his father took a job in Mont de Leucoy. Now twenty-two, he hasn’t left even though there is nothing keeping him there…until he is blackmailed into watching the building over the road from the bar where he works.

With Dalmon back in England, Gerrit injured, and Everest ruling by proxy, Kaine Lenoir, the only phoenix shifter not part of the royal family in this life, is feeling the pressure to take down the Shadow Board before more people die and paranormals are exposed to humans.

One night to blow off some tension turns into a disaster when the man turns out to be his fated mate. Worse, he is an untrained mind-reading witch.

The only positive is that Quentin is being blackmailed by the Shadow Board. All Kaine needs to do is find a way to use that—to use Quentin—to destroy the Board. Have the Fates stacked the deck in his favor, or will he create a soul bruise that will haunt them both for lifetimes?

A one-night stand turns into forever as a witch discovers the hidden world of paranormals and takes control of his magic while being dazzled by the wealth and secrets of the phoenix shifters that make up the royal family.

When asked to comment on her ex’s sexuality, aspiring actress Courtney Quinn stated, “I don’t know why everyone is surprised. It’s not like it’s the first time he’s been with a man.”

Sour grapes from a jilted lover or secrets from his past revealed?
