BOOK SYNOPSIS
Book 5 in the No Rival series

A career-ending injury leaves Brian reeling. With no clue what he’ll do now that his dream of becoming an MMA champion is over, he is shocked at an unexpected offer of help from a former champ.

Terry has seen the top and is happy with his life in retirement. However the chance to help a fellow fighter regain his dream is something he can’t resist.

When Brian accepts Terry’s offer, the sexual magnetism between them catches Brian off guard. Keeping his attraction hidden becomes a bigger challenge than regaining his strength. Plus, Terry’s mixed signals leave Brian frustrated and confused.

Though Terry is just as hot for Brian, he has secrets that could tear their budding romance apart. But he simply cannot resist the pull Brian has over him or the heat between them. Through it all, both men discover that love really can conquer all.

Inside Scoop: This male/male romance will leave you hot but most definitely not bothered.
A Romantica® contemporary gay erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

EXCERPT (18+)

“I never drink and you’re going to make me drink alone?”
A grin tugged at Terry’s lips at Brian’s sullen comment. “You need the fortification while I’ve had more than my fair share for one lifetime.”
Brian’s speech was already beginning to slow down. “It’s not right to leave a man hanging.”
“I have to drive you home and I don’t drink and drive.”
Brian slipped down an inch in his chair. Crossing his arms over his chest, he stared at Terry through his lashes. “I could stay here.” Although Terry doubted Brian’s proposition was intended the way he would’ve liked, it still caused his cock to lengthen. “It wouldn’t be the first time I slept in a chair.” That statement might have taken the bite out his arousal if Brian’s tone hadn’t gone sultry. Not to mention, his eyes darkened. Terry shifted in his seat to hide his erection. The expression on Brian’s face was hot as hell.
“I wouldn’t let you sleep in a chair.” He hoped Brian was now wondering where he would allow him to sleep. Of course, the answer was nowhere. If Brian stayed, neither of them would get any rest.
Brian tossed back another shot before straightening in his seat. “If I’m not staying then I’d better go home. I’d hate to pass out on you and like I said, I don’t drink often.”
With a nod, Terry stood. Brian attempted to follow suit but swayed on his feet. Racing forward, Terry caught him before he could hit the ground. The motion left them chest to chest. A nervous sounding chuckle vibrated from Brian. Terry could feel it against his skin. Their gazes met. The sound died.
“You’re very bossy,” Brian said, surprising a chuckle from Terry.
“You’re very drunk,” Terry countered.
Brian didn’t move away. Neither did Terry. “I’ll get over being drunk, you’ll always be bossy.”
“I have a feeling—if you remember any of this tomorrow—you’re going to be horrified.”
Brian was staring at his mouth. He shook his head. “Nope. I haven’t done anything to be embarrassed about…yet.”
Terry marveled over the way Brian’s eyes gave away his every emotion. They seemed to flash from light to dark brown and back again as he visibly struggled against his desire. Unable to keep from doing so, Terry gave him an extra shove. Using his voice against him, he allowed a hint of his growing lust to seep into his tone.
“Do you intend to?” With his gaze still locked on Terry’s mouth, Brian nodded. “Do it,” Terry taunted. The words barely passed his lips before Brian claimed his mouth. For Terry, it was like tossing gasoline on already raging bonfire. It was everything he’d fantasized it would be with an extra helping of expertise tossed into the mix. The way Brian’s tongue stroked the roof of his mouth before slipping away and reappearing again left Terry with no choice except to chase after it. The moment he thought he had him, Brian sank his teeth into Terry’s bottom lip, tugging gently. Terry gasped. He couldn’t remember a time he’d been this close to coming in his jeans, especially from nothing more than a kiss. At the sound, Brian turned his face away, resting his forehead on Terry’s shoulder. His shoulders heaved as he visibly struggled to catch his breath.
“The room is spinning.”
Terry clamped his back teeth together. His muscles seized tight as he attempted to control his lust. “That’s because the world tilted,” Terry said once he found his voice.

My review

Terry won Brian on a charity auction. He has an ulterior motive that Brian doesn’t like. Terry wants to train Brian back to fighting status after he had his arm broken by Kurt in the fights. Brian doesn’t think it’s possible and his attraction to Terry doesn’t make it easier.

I started this book giggling, then came oh wow yummy, then came horror, then came tears and I’m not going to tell you what it finished with. Let’s just say that the author keeps her status as the queen of twist.

I loved this book so much. It had me going through emotions like a hurricane. It delivered on all levels.

Oh and we meet McKenna again briefly. I love her character.

Hurry up and jump on this emotional roller coaster. I promise you won’t regret it.

Fall🍁

image

~
Leaves falling with elegance
Gracefully decorating the forrest floor
Red ~ Gold ~ Brown
Covering the ground as a last defence
Against the frost to come
The sun highlighting blazing colors
Making it seem
As if the trees are burning
A fire to alert you
Of the winter cold
That stalks towards us
In an endless dance
Of shifting seasons

Sunset Poetry

~

I wrote a poem in collaboration with the talented poet Ben Dirmars.

The poem is inspired by a beautiful sunset picture,

taken by the amazing Kim Stapf.

Theirs is sky above the trees

And we are lost below

The crimson failure

With a tangerine and blue indifference

~

Molten lava runs through our veins

While we gaze upon the liquid gold

That runs across the celestial sphere

As we try and find our way through life

~

Into a new horizon

Blanketed with clouds

And silhouettes of us

Entwined as scoria

~

With scarlet dreams

We enter the night

A new beginning

Of hushed whispers

Warm Memories – A new #poem

Originally posted on A Life Among The Pages:

Today’s post is a new poem I wrote about two weeks ago while out on a walk in the woods. Fall comes early where I live. The leaves have been starting to change for over a month now. Aside from winter, fall is one of my favorite seasons.

You may recall an announcement from last year in which I mentioned that I was working on a new collection of poetry. As you probably were able to tell…nothing came out of it. Well, I haven’t forgotten about it. That collection has some work to throw into it, and this poem will probably be in there too (if no one thinks it’s the worst thing I’ve written). It’s just that I haven’t been able to write much in the last year or more. I’m hoping that more of these random bouts of inspiration hit me so I can work on this collection…
