Everything’s Better With You, by R.L. Merrill

Everything’s Better With You is a TED LASSO-inspired sports-themed funny romance featuring two guys who’ve pined for each other for 15 years while their careers soared and their bodies fell apart.

Retired quarterback and “nicest guy in the NFL” Leslie Payton met former college cheerleader-turned-reality-show darling Joe Judd fifteen years ago. They spent one magical night…talking. They’ve been pining for each other via text and phone calls ever since while their careers kept them geographically apart. When their alma mater recruits them to reinvigorate a flagging athletic program, Leslie is thrilled to finally have Joe close enough to see if their “what if” can become a reality. And the sooner the better before Leslie’s history of Traumatic Brain Injury catches up to him and he’s unable to be a true partner.

Joe has spent their years apart dancing on reality TV, Broadway, and concert tours, knowing full well the clock is ticking on his body’s ability to continue taking the abuse. Leslie wants forever to start now, and Joe doesn’t have that luxury, though Leslie makes him want things he’s never allowed himself to dream of with anyone else. But a lifetime of only feeling worthwhile for his performance ability makes him doubt whether he could ever be a good coach or enough of a partner for the best man he’s ever known.

As football and cheer coaches, they’re forced to be rivals in public, but behind closed doors, their chemistry is unstoppable. A wager triggers their competitive sides, but the secrets they keep come to light and present them with a seemingly insurmountable obstacle. Can they finally meet on the relationship 50-yard line and move forward as a team?

Recommended for readers 18 and up who love open and honest dialogue about sex, and challenges to toxic masculinity. Also included: mesh crop tops, gratuitous shirtless car wash scenes, phone sex therapy, and all the pining.

First Catch, by Cecelia Storm

The hardest play to master is a touchdown of the heart… Will these two opposites come together to score the ultimate goal?


Teaching languages on the side is the only thing keeping me afloat right now, but when a golden-retriever of a man hired me for double my usual rate, I was suspicious.

The NFL is expecting great things from me this season, not to mention upholding my family’s pro-sports legacy. But when grumpy Oli showed up at my door to teach me French, it didn’t take long for me to fall for his beauty and mind. But… why does he feel like he’s always in danger? What is he running from?

Dragon Rider, by S. Rodman

Dragons are real. I should not be so distracted by the men riding them.

I’ve found myself in a hidden world of dragons and nightly battles to protect Earth, but while the dragons are magnificent magical creatures, and bonding with Ri and learning to fly is an exhilarating joy, other dragon riders are taking too much of my attention.

Mordecai is haunting my dreams and thoughts. He is a strikingly good looking man. Tall and lean with long blond hair and blue eyes that change shade with his emotions. But he is cruel, mocking and aloof. He lets no one close. I should leave him well alone.

Harlen is far nicer. He is friendly, takes an interest in me and smiles. His broad muscles and bronzed skin, together with his dark curls and copper eyes, give me butterflies.

When our bonded dragons mate, I know it affects us. A dragon’s passion is impossible to resist. But I’m shocked to discover which man is more dominant. And I’m awed by the awakening of my pleasure. Dragons aren’t the only things that are new to me. Exploring this side of my nature is divine.

But I can’t help hoping it is more than that.

In this strange new world of dragons, magic and desire, can I find my place? And can I find love?

Dragonrider is set in our modern world, one where dragons fly every night, you just can’t see them. It contains a gay ‘Why choose’ love triangle, with high steam, high stakes, high angst & a happy for now ending.

Some Place Like Home, by Gin Vane

Three weeks of playing taxi shouldn’ t have him tied up in knots…

Everett says he owes him for his help at Foxland, but Carver has long been comfortable in the shadow of his unknown past. He doesn’ t need the former detective to search through his life for family. No sense in holding space for something he’ ll never get.

With his auto shop scraping by, he’ s back to bartending to pay the bills— and while he doesn’ t want to admit it, the perk of easy company is losing its shine. Too broke to refuse the work, he gets a tip about a sedan off the highway. But the man behind the wheel quickly becomes more than he bargained for.

Daniel Henning may look like some bumbling academic, but when he brushes off the dig dirt, the man is downright gorgeous. He’ s in town for three weeks and absolutely running from his baggage. Just like another college-boy that Carver used to know.

Maybe he hasn’ t learned a thing if he’ s willing to make this mistake twice, but it’ s not just Daniel’ s talent with rope that keeps pulling Carver back in. Daniel looks at him like the best parts of what he lost. If they could each escape the weight of their pasts, might they have a future together?

Only more time would tell. But Carver’ s never been the kind to ask.

Assassin, by Katy Haye

Kiss or Kill? Why not both?

Kit was sent to the Sudharainian court with one purpose: kill Prince Talal, heir to the sultanate.
Kit’s never wavered in his duty before, but he’s taken aback by a sudden, powerful attraction to the man he’s been sent to assassinate.
The attraction seems to be mutual, so perhaps Kit can use it to his advantage: seduce the prince to get close enough to murder him.
There’s just one problem: Kit knows a hundred ways to kill a man, but since he’s never even been kissed, he has no idea how to begin a seduction…

Isolated by being both prince and heir, Talal has been eager to meet his soulmate since the age of two.
He knew his soulmate would come from across the sea where customs are different, but he couldn’t have guessed the man would be a beautiful killer who considers soulmates an abomination.
The only place they’re compatible is in the bedroom. Talal will use that connection to forge their bond. Since soulmates are united for life, that will give him plenty of time to establish a relationship … won’t it?

If you enjoy Tavia Lark and E H Lee’s MM fantasy stories, you’ll love stepping into the world of Adventurers and Exiles. Join Kit and Talal in their timeless romance where a feral cinnamon roll meets his intellectual bound-by-duty prince.

Death, by Sienna Moreau

It all began with the kiss of Death.

Abaddon, the Destroyer, right hand of Lucifer, has returned from the dead with one thing on his mind: revenge on the Horseman who kept him from taking back what is his. But spending time alone with Death has awakened something between them, resulting in an experience that he enjoys more than revenge. The natural conclusion is to keep doing it, of course. He never planned on his heart getting involved with a Horseman he can’t even touch.

Death is the fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse, arriving only when the end is near. The Apocalypse he and his brothers were summoned for this time is over, lost when they lost one of their own, but the stakes are higher now than ever before. It isn’t just Earth that’s at risk; the fate of existence now hangs in the balance, with a power-hungry God ready to unleash a new world order.

Death cannot touch another and has resigned himself to spending his existence alone, until a kiss changes everything for him. When Abaddon returns, and they pick up right where they left off, Death doesn’t fight the attraction that spirals out of control faster than they can keep up with it. Death cannot feel Abaddon’s skin against his own, but Abaddon breaks so beautifully under him anyway, taking everything that he can give and asking for more.

Abaddon had never imagined that he would love anyone or fall so hard, so fast. Death had never imagined that he would find someone to walk beside him, someone to call his own. Time is running out for them, and if they don’t find a way to push back against the powers vying for them, all will be lost.

The last Apocalypse is coming, and no one is safe.

Death is the fourth and final book in the Four Horsemen series. This book is not a standalone and must be read in order. You have been warned.

Content warnings: religious themes, extreme violence, gore, blood play, masochism, and others listed inside.

Death is a 112,000-word dark paranormal MM romance featuring morally questionable characters, unrequited hate, Angels, Demons, Horsemen of the Apocalypse, snark and plenty of banter.

Third Time Lucky, by Aurora Crane

Trust didn’t always go both ways, and Grady Donehue had learned that the hard way. He hadn’t learned better after the first betrayal, but he wasn’t going to make the same mistake a third time. Striking up a strange friendship with the equally strange–and straight–soldier, Lake, who had sunshine in his eyes? Grady could do that. He could even handle helping Lake figure out he might not be so straight after all, in a very hands-on way. But falling in love? No, thanks.

Lake McKenna has spent his whole life absolutely confident in who he is and what he wants. Even when the picture-perfect future he’d always envisioned seemed further away than ever, none of his plans had included another man. But the more time Lake spends with his new friend—grumpy and sneaky-sexy detective, Grady—the more he thinks that maybe what he really needs is something different than what he had always imagined.

Neither man was prepared for the other, but Lake is nothing if not flexible. Doubt isn’t part of his makeup. He knows how much more incredible they could be together if only Grady could see it too. But Grady has to decide if Lake is worth risking his heart again, and whether he’s brave enough to see if it really is third time lucky.

Third Time Lucky is an 80,000-word MM romance. It is a bi-awakening, friends-to-lovers romance with low angst and high feels. It is set in the Chain Reaction universe but can be read as a standalone.

The Alien Emissary, by Eryn Ivers

The metal tentacles tightened around Bryant’s wrists and for the first time in his life he finally felt…safe.

Bryant Harrison doesn’t do burglaries. His strength, his size, and his obviously once broken nose all mean he’s the muscle – not the thief. But he desperately needs the money to save his young daughter before she’s sent to a penal colony far beyond his reach. Alarm bells ring in his head as he breaks into the personal ship of an influential alien diplomat, but this time he can’t afford to listen to them…

Captured by the ship’s top of the line security system, Bryant expects to be turned in if not turned inside out and torn limb from limb. He doesn’t expect an encounter that leaves him limp, trembling, and questioning everything.

Emissary Serihk has always been the most powerful man in a room. Backed by the richest species-state in the galaxy, Serihk decides the fates of nations and of planets. But suddenly, all he wants to decide is the fate of one human man and his young daughter.

The human is tough as nails, clever and shrewd, achingly handsome, and a survivor of things Serihk has only ever read reports on. Yet when Serihk touches him, the human yields to him, trusts him, and lights a protective fire in him that Serihk has never felt before.

Bryant wishes he could fall into the arms of this commanding, elegant, awe-inspiring alien whose very presence wipes away all his crushing fear and doubt. But he can’t afford to lose his edge. He knows from experience that good things don’t last and people always leave you.

But does that mean he has to leave the one place – and more importantly the one man – who ever made him feel safe?

The Alien Emissary is a steamy (very steamy) story featuring power dynamics, dom/sub undertones, tentacles, and trust issues.

It is the prologue novella to Interspecies Alliances – a series best read in order about a galaxy torn apart by conflict and the men fighting to keep it together. Everyone gets HEAs once the series ends, but first each novel follows its own couple with their own HFN ending on this epic space adventure.
