Tasting Notes by Cate Ashwood: Release Day Book Blast, Excerpt and Giveaway

TastingNotesFSsynopsis

West, a venture capitalist, has paid for his wealth and success with long hours at the office and no personal life to speak of. Meetings, conference calls, and paperwork dominate his waking hours and have kept him from honoring the promise he made to his late grandfather years before.

After leaving the Marines, Rush returns to his hometown and settled in as a Christmas Tree farmer. His life is quiet and simple, and he likes it that way. When West arrives in town and buys Rush’s parent’s vineyard on a whim, that simple life is turned upside down. The animosity between them is palpable, but Rush shelves his preconceived notions in order to protect his parents’ legacy. He agrees to help West learn how to run the vineyard, and Rush soon realizes that love doesn’t necessarily come in the package he expected.

excerptThe drive over felt the same as it always did. Rush thought his truck probably could have found its way anywhere in town, but the trip to Lennox Hill was one he’d made at least a few thousand times. It was weird to think the property no longer belonged to his family. Enough of his sweat had soaked into the soil that a part of him lived in that land.

He parked his truck in the same place as always and opened the door, calling to Casper to jump out before closing the door behind him. The door to the main structure was closed and locked. Rush peered through the windows of the wine room as he walked past, but the lights were off and the space was abandoned. Rush and Casper followed the pathway toward the house. Casper sat down as Rush knocked, waiting patiently for an answer. When none came, he knocked again with a little more force. West’s car was parked in the driveway, so unless he had decided to walk somewhere, he should be here.

A moment later, the door swung open and West stood there, naked from the waist up, his hair disheveled and his cheeks pink.

“What the fuck?” he asked.

Rush saw red, which was a blessing because it kept him from seeing the way West’s body looked beneath his clothes. The guy was sleeping, and it was nearly noon. He’d owned the vineyard for less than a week, and he was already slacking off.

“Can I come in? I want to talk to you.”

West stepped to the side to let Rush enter. He looked around. Everything was the same as he remembered it. The house was warm and comfortable, begging you to come in and stay a while. Rush had always loved this house. He peered into the living room, noting the two empty wine bottles on the coffee table.

“Is that a fucking wolf?” West demanded, breaking Rush out of his train of thought.

“What? No. That’s Casper. My dog.”

With a subtle nod from Rush, Casper sat next to his master, his eyes glued to West, but quiet.RC

West narrowed his eyes. “Why are you here?”

“I came to offer my help. You said you needed help, and my mom told me you didn’t know a fucking thing about running this place, so I figured I’d bail you out.”

“Why?” West looked awfully mistrustful. Rush couldn’t blame him. He didn’t trust West either.

“Because they’re my family, and you’re the dickhead who bought the place they poured their hearts and souls into. I’m not going to let you run it into the ground because you have some romantic fucking idea about being all sophisticated and worldly, owning your own vineyard. Not going to happen.”

“Look, what is your fucking problem with me?” West asked, crowding Rush’s space. “You’ve been nothing but a complete bastard to me since the moment you laid eyes on me. I haven’t done shit to you, and you’re giving me a rough time for no goddamn reason.”

Casper growled, but Rush calmed him with a gentle pat to the head. “Sue me if I don’t like spoiled little rich kids. You blow into town in your tricked-out sports car and think you can do whatever you want here because you have a shit ton of money. You take what you want without any regard for the people around you.”

“You don’t know a thing about me, but you think you’ve got my number. Well, you can go fuck yourself. You saw my car, and you made a snap decision about me. You didn’t bother talking to me or getting to know me at all before you rushed to judgment. Maybe you should give me the benefit of the doubt before you tell me who I am.”

“I don’t need to. I know exactly who you are. I’ve met guys like you. You’re arrogant, spoiled, and selfish. You put on a good front, pretending to be this philanthropic nice guy, but when it comes down to it, you’ll choose your money over everything else.”

“Oh, for fuck sakes. You storm in here, waking me up and screaming at me. In case you missed the memo, this is my home now. You’re on my property. What gives you the right to show up and give me shit about something you know nothing about?”

“Your name may be on the deed, but that’s as far as it goes, asshole. Lennox Hill is in my blood, and the last thing I want is for you to completely destroy it out of sheer ignorance.”

“Well, then there’s something we agree on. It’s why I came to your house in the first place, in case you need reminding about that. I don’t want this place to fail any more than you do, so how about you get your head out of your ass, stop being such a fucking prick, and help me?”

Rush stared at him, not saying a word. He hadn’t anticipated the conversation taking this turn. Hell, he hadn’t anticipated this conversation period. There was something there, behind West’s eyes, a kind of rawness Rush hadn’t expected. He stepped forward, his eyes locked on West’s. He felt drawn to him like a compass to north, locking onto that flicker of something unnamable.

He was not in control of his body. He pulled a quick intake of breath as the space between them evaporated. He was close enough that he could feel the crackle of electricity between them, as tangible as if West was statically charged.

“Fine, I’ll help,” Rush said, knowing West could feel his breath as he spoke.

“But this doesn’t mean I like you,” Rush growled.

“Understood,” West replied. “I don’t like you either.”

“As long as we’re clear.”

Love Is Found by R. Paone: Cover Reveal, Excerpt and Giveaway

Title: Love is Found
Series: Only If Series #1
Author: R. Paone
Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
Release Date: November 16, 2015

 

“Love is Found” is the moving story about coming-of-age in suburban New York and discovering the broad concept of sexuality and love.

 


Based on true events of love, the story’s protagonist, Robert, finds himself thrown into the realization that upon entering graduate school he is beginning a new chapter in his adult life. Comfortable with being gay, he yearns for love but dwells on the ideal of being alone while being consumed by the world of academia. Upon starting a new job he meets a coworker, whom he begins an unlikely relationship with considering this man identifies as straight.

When sex is introduced and emotions run amok, the routine of Robert’s life is thrown into chaos with unexpected outcomes. Little does he know if his heart can survive the overwhelming desire and how this man will alter the course of his life just not now, but for the next decade.

The first novel in the debut “Only If…” series by R.Paone introduces the heartbreaking portrait of one young man finding love in all the wrong places while exploring themes of one’s sexual identity, passion, and nostalgia. 
He was quiet. Dead quiet.
“Are you?”

 

“I don’t know what I am into, to be honest. I really have had passing thoughts about guys sometimes when I jerk off, stuff like that. I never made any effort to act on it ever, I swear.” There it was again. That look of total defeat in his eyes. He propped himself up on his hands and knees resting his forehead down on them.

 

Part of me was beginning to feel accusative and prying. I had to remind myself that this was not about his sexuality but the concern of his actions involving me in them, as I had as much to lose in this situation whether he noticed it or not. I started to think I was being harsh and felt guilty because I didn’t want him to think off the bat I was questioning what he was attracted to. I didn’t want to do that. That wasn’t why I was here.

 

“Listen-“ I moved in closer, hesitant. I put my hand on his back. I could feel slight dampness beneath the cotton. He was sweating. He was heaving. He was crying. “Mitch, look at me, are you okay? It’s going to be fine. We can move past this.”
Just when I thought I was going to be on the receiving end of not being able to control my emotions, here was this grown man crying in front of me. I was feeling so many different sentiments right now. Reluctant I started to rub his back going back and forth between pity and future for what hurt he was feeling. He pulled himself up from his lap trying to catch his breath.

 

“No, it’s not going to be fine. I am a fucking mess, can’t you see that? I’m going to be 28 soon and I can’t figure out if I am even straight or bi or whatever. To make matters worse I’m not only dragging my clueless girlfriend into this shit storm, but also you for whom I just met almost two weeks ago.” He sat up as tears streamed steadily down his face running through his dark stubble. “That night when I kissed you, Robert, it didn’t feel like a mistake or that was wrong. It almost felt like I was making the right choice by taking the chance to get you closer until you pulled away from me. That fucking terrified me. You tearing yourself away from me.”

 

R.Paone started on this writing journey in June, 2014. From events that were beyond his control, he decided to start this new path in his life before my 30th birthday. It has been quite the journey mapping out this story arc. He has learned so much writing a novel in that it has been therapeutic and also eye opening as it evolves. He hopes everyone will enjoy what is to come from the “ONLY IF” series as I want this to be something anyone could reach for and say “that could happen to me.” Stay tuned! Three fun facts about him is: he live in NYC, has a vast horror movie collection and has a great appreciation for Enya.

Reckless (Pier 70 Book 1) by Nicole Edwards: Pre-Order Blitz and Giveaway

Title: Reckless

Series: Pier 70 #1

Author: Nicole Edwards

Genre: Adult, M/M Romance

Coming: October 27, 2015

He’s a walking contradiction…

Cam Strickland, one of the four owners of Pier 70 Marina, has earned the nickname his friends gave him years ago. Reckless. Sure. By definition. When it comes to fun, Cam hasn’t yet met a challenge he wouldn’t accept. In other areas, he’s likely far too cautious for his own good.

He’s his complete opposite…

Gannon Burgess, CEO of Burgess Entertainment, one of the top video game producers in the world, finds himself smack in the middle of the last place he would ever expect to be. But Gannon only thinks he is out of his element standing in the small marina office. Then… he meets Cam.

Rumor is opposites attract.

Sparks fly when this sexy, tattooed bad boy comes face to face with this buttoned-up gamer in glasses.

Can Cam and Gannon push one another out of their comfort zones? Or — thanks to the events that have shaped their lives — will the time they spend together prove to be just another reckless adventure? This one involving their hearts.

 

New York Times bestselling author Nicole Edwards launched her professional writing career in July of 2012. Having been an avid reader all of her life and a huge fan of creative writing, it seemed the likely path for her to take. Since then, she has released fifteen books and has no plans to stop. As her full-time career/hobby, Nicole writes steamy contemporary and erotic romances.

Nicole is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author who was born and raised in Texas. Married with three kids and four dogs, she has plenty of interaction to keep her imagination brewing. Her books have been featured in USA Today’s Happy Ever After segment as well as Indie Reader’s best seller list. She has forged her way as an independent author.

Although she has a bachelor’s degree in Human Resources, she prefers to be hiding out in her writing cave, talking to the fictional characters that have built up in her head over the years.

When she isn’t writing or plotting her next book (sometimes translated to “playing on Facebook”), Nicole loves to read and spend time with her family and her dogs.

Foster an Author Week: Day 5 with TM Smith

Taking Part Foster

 

Our last day with the lovely TM Smith. Hope you have enjoyed your time with her, and hope you will stop by again!!!

Thank you TM for joining us!!!
naughty threesomeDay 5

It’s time to say goodbye, but I don’t wanna! I will leave you all with this super sexy scene that was deleted from Fame and Fortune for content purposes. It’s a lovely little romp and it comes complete with visuals. Enjoy!!

Deleted scene from Fame and Fortune

 

“Oh God, yeah, right there!” Mattie cried out as Andrew probed his wanton hole with his tongue. Once he had Mattie lose and pliable, he grabbed the bottle of lube and covered his rock hard cock before lining up and slowly pushing his way in.

“God Mattie, so good, so tight.” Andrew growled low in his throat as he began rocking into Mattie’s welcoming channel. He wrapped his arm around Mattie’s stomach and pulled him up onto his knees, the other hand digging into Mattie’s hip, holding him in place. Mattie turned his head and leaned back for a sloppy, uncoordinated kiss.

3 5

Andrew hissed when he felt one of Victor’s fingers slide into him, quickly followed by a second, then a third. “Vic, baby, gonna make me come before you’re even inside me,” he moaned.

Victor chuckled in his ear before biting the lobe, “Have to get you ready Andy.”

He pegged Andrew’s gland with his thick digits and Andrew cried out, slamming into Mattie, which caused him to cry out as well and fall forward on the bed. Mattie groaned and arched his back, causing his ass to lift further up and allowing Andrew a deeper level of penetration. He climbed onto the edge of the bed, on his knees, leaning over Mattie’s body and grabbing hold of his legs behind the knees for support and continued to slowly fuck Mattie to the point of insanity. Mattie was cussing and groaning and pushing back into every thrust in an attempt to get Andrew to bring him to the point of release. But Andrew was having far too much fun driving Mattie out of his mind, until he felt the press of Victor’s wet tongue sliding up his crease.

“Holy fuck!” Andrew shouted and not only lost his train of thought, he lost his rhythm. He could hear Victor laughing just before he felt the tip of Victor’s tongue penetrate his opening. It was taking all Andrew’s concentration just to breathe. He almost forgot his dick was buried inside a warm, welcoming ass until Mattie groaned in frustration. Andrew was rendered speechless and immobile as Mattie fucked himself on his cock and Victor tore his ass apart with his tongue and teeth.

3 4The noises and sounds bouncing off the walls of the room created a sexy symphony that lulled Andrew into an almost comatose state. He could hear filthy words coming from Mattie mixed with his delicious little moans and groans and the squishy sound Mattie’s cock made as it slid along the tight grip of Mattie’s hand. Coming from behind him, Andrew could hear the slurping sounds Victor’s mouth made as he ravished Andrew’s hole, and the familiar sound of Victor fisting his own dick in his hand blended into the chorus of the tune they were playing.

Victor stood and spread Andrew’s knees further apart, making room for his larger body to slide into the space between his legs. He lined his cock up and drove all the way in with one slow push. It didn’t take long for the three of them to sync their bodies and begin moving fluidly together. Mattie fisted the pillow as the combined weight of both his men completely lost in their mutual lust threatened to send him through the wall with each push of their hips. Andrew was in the prime position in his spot in the middle. Every thrust forward brought Mattie closer to climax and his channel was literally milking Andrew’s dick. Every push back buried Victor’s thick cock all the way inside him, and his prostate pulsed with pleasure every time Victor pulled back and grazed it with that thick cock.

It was a good thing no one was in the adjoining room as the three of them came in quick succession. Between the headboard banging against the wall, Mattie’s screams, Andrew’s shouts and Victor’s animalistic growl, any neighbor may have called 911, fearing the person in their room was being brutally murdered.

They all fell onto the bed in a heap, Victor and Andrew remembering to pull out and fall on either side of Mattie, so they wouldn’t crush him with their weight.

“We’re you trying… to fuck me… through the wall?” Mattie finally managed to choke out between gasping for air.3

Andrew and Victor both laughed so hard that their bodies made the bed shake.

“Stop moving for five minutes.” Mattie whined, rolling over onto his back. “I can’t breathe.”

Andrew was just starting to dose off when Mattie shoved him with his foot. “Go get a rag so we can clean up or we’re going to be superglued to the damn bed in the morning with as much come as there is on this fucking thing.”

“Vic baby,” Andrew flung his arm in the air, pointing toward the bathroom. “Rag.”

“Fuck off.” Was the only response he got from Victor, who did not even flinch, much less move.

“I guess you’re stuck with us then Mattie,” Andrew said and as the words sunk into the three fucked out minds in the bed, they all cracked up before curling into each other and falling asleep.

What does it cost to sell yourself? Your body? Your heart? Your soul?

At eighteen, with no job, no money, and a young sister to care for, becoming an escort seemed the perfect answer, but by the age of twenty four, Dominque is left wondering how he can break free of his ‘short term’ solution.

Jacob is at the top of his profession, leaving him with no time or desire for a relationship. Caring for another person full time isn’t on his agenda, but that soon changes when fate steps in and offers him the chance of something more.

Unable to forget the intriguing brunette after their first date, Jacob is enticed to spend more time with Dominque, seeking to put the pain of the past behind them, and bring peace to the wounded bird who captivated him so easily.

EXCERPT:

Jacob pressed his face into the messy tumble of hair in front of him, smelling the unique sensual scent of Dominque, trying to ignore the need inside him to pull him backwards and cage him in his arms while he ground his cock into those firm cheeks.

“Jacob.” Dominque’s silken voice purred into the otherwise silent room.

“Dominque.” Jacob smiled.

“I missed you last night.”

Jacob moved closer, draping an arm over Dominque’s stomach and splaying his fingers out over the taut, smooth flesh beneath them. “Well, that makes being apart from you much more bearable. To be missed by you, to know you lay here thinking of me, wanting me to be with you, it makes the unpleasant act of not being beside you more tolerable.”

He placed a soft, barely there kiss on the flawlessly smooth flesh found just under Dominque’s ear. “Would it make you happy if I told you all I could think about was you, about returning to this room and taking you into my arms, holding you while I kissed every inch of this marvellous body of yours until you were lying limp and breathless in my arms, unable to voice how much you needed me to stop?”

He placed a deeper kiss in the same spot, this time licking the sweet skin before continuing. “How every breath I took was wasted because you weren’t there to share it. How every beat of my heart only reminded me how useless it was to continue without having you beside me.”

“Jacob…” Dominque glanced over his shoulder, heavy lids half covering the seductive wide brown eyes beneath them, black lashes curling, tickling his skin as he blinked, centering his alluring gaze on Jacob. “You’re making it difficult to keep to our no sex rule.”

“I’ll think you’ll find—” He placed an open-mouthed kiss to the same spot under Dominque’s ear. “—it’s you who is making things very hard to ignore that particular rule.” His cock was rigid and aching, pulsing against Dominque’s cheeks. “I hurt I want you that much. It physically pains me to be this close to you and not have you.”

“Then take me,” Dominque breathed out. “Please. I want you too, Jacob.” He pressed backwards, rocking onto Jacob’s cock, making him groan deep and long against his supple skin.

Jacob moved his hand lower, finding the band of Dominque’s shorts and toying with them before he worked his palm further, finding his cock was just as stiff as his. “Dominque… Jesus.”

“I need you. Please.”

Jacob couldn’t stop years of lust from filling him up. The man he’d been waiting for all his adult life was laid beside him, begging him to touch him. How could he refuse such sweet words?

Guest post

Sneak peak behind the scenes at All Cocks stories

Writing about Gay Porn and making it believable

The All Cocks Stories is a series that was born from a conversation I had last year in Chicago with a couple of lovely young men that work in the online Gay porn industry. I learned a lot talking to these guys in regards to the ins and outs of the industry. So while I used what we talked about to start the series and it helped give Chris and Linc depth in their story, I also had to research the behind the camera aspect of the industry as well. There is a controversial movie on Netflix that was produced by James Franco, Interior Leather Bar; it’s about missing footage from an Al Pacino movie or something along those lines. What drew me to the movie was the behind the scenes of the behind the scenes. It was a glimpse of what camera crews, directors and producers do to make these sexy videos we love to drool over.

Then there is my most prized possession, my membership to Cockyboys, I get a LOT of inspiration from there. So when you are reading these books and the story rotates from filming a scene to the actors in the scene and back to the crew filming the scene, I hope you get the feeling that you are really there and getting a somewhat accurate account of what might happen while filming.

I didn’t want the stories to be all about the sex or the industry though, so I am giving each book a unique storyline. Gay for Pay was Chris and Linc’s story and the title should speak for itself. Fame and Fortune is the story of the throuple that runs All Cocks, how they started the company and how they became a working threesome. Up next for this group of guys is How to Deal, this will be Officer Jon and cranky Kory’s story and I’m very excited to get this one started. Jon and Kory are already talking and fighting in my head let me tell you, this book is going to be a bit volatile, but sexy as hell.

I don’t know yet how many books this series will hold, new characters keep popping up in my head and talking to me. Yes, I admit I hear voices and no, I’m not crazy. Well, not really anyways. For fans of the series I know for certain I’ll be writing a book for Colton and Tony, books for Asher and for Connor somewhere along the way, a couple novellas {Michael and Max, Jordan and someone ;)} and Gabe’s story is taking an interesting twist in How to Deal. I also introduce a new character in How to Deal, an Iraqi War Vet that has lost his leg. His story is going to be woven into someone elses. I had WAY too much fun writing Fame and Fortune, I must have another threesome!New Teaser 2 (1)

Thank you all for stopping by today, and thank you to the lovely ladies over at Two Chicks Obsessed with Books and Eye Candy for adopting me this week. It’s such a lovely home! I hope the red wine I spilled will come out of the carpet!! **TCO Note: We got all the red wine out, but the chocolate, well. 🙂 **

Foster an Author Week : Day 3 with TM Smith

Taking Part Foster

At Two Chicks Obsessed, we were lucky enough to be asked to participate in Fostering an Author week, hosted by Jo&Isa Love Books.

We are so lucky to have the lovely TM Smith to chat with all week, so sit back and learn more about the author, and everything to do with her works!

Fame and Fortune PlaylistDay 3

Playlist with Song tie in Part 2

{link to playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkehmrHrmCeNW4ErNUXTJ8y8Ih4lC953L}

I’m here to talk about music again, the playlist is so long, I thought it deserved two days. Anywho… the coffee is gone and we ran out of juice for the mimosas, so by the time you are done reading this I will have polished off a bottle of bubbly!

Every song on the playlist relates to the story in one way or another. Whether it be a chapter, a scene or just a quick nod. The first song I chose for Fame and Fortune, before I even started writing, was Everything has Changed by Taylor Swift w/Ed Sheeran. The words of the song just screamed Victor, Andrew and Mattie to me. “I just want to know you better now.” “Everything has changed.” This song sort of encapsulates their relationship as a whole.

The Fray – You Found Me. “Lost and Insecure, you found me you found me, lying on the floor, you found me you found me. Mattie was very much lost and insecure when he first met Victor and Andrew. It was their trust and faith in him that made him thrive and grow and become the man he became. Lying on the floor would probably be the line that drew me to this song, you’ll understand that once you read the book. It’s heartbreaking but beautiful.

Enya – Only Time. “Who can say if your love grows as your heart chose, only time.” These three hearts chose each other, who can say why, and does it really matter? Their love grows stronger because they choose to be together and to hell with anyone that doesn’t understand it.ff series teaser (1)

You should read Fame and Fortune then go listen to the playlist and see if you can place all the songs where they play into the story, it can be a fun game!

Day 2

Dream Cast…

Victor/Andrew/Mattie

 

VA Teaser

 

Victor 2Victor and Andrew are the founding partners of All Cocks inc. Victor is a Romanian immigrant and Andrew is a native New Yorker. I love writing Victor with his whole Dracula Cowboy persona. For him I chose Luke Evans as my visual inspiration and if you have to ask why you haven’t watched the newest Dracula movie yet.

 

 

 

Andrew is the more subdued and laid back of the throuple. He’s the photographer and camera man extraoAndrewrdinaire with his straight forward attitude and mesmerizing blue eyes. For him I chose Matt Bomer, partly because I’ve always wanted to write a character around him and partly because of his amazing blue eyes.

 

 

Mattie teaser

 

Oh my beautiful, tortured soul Mattie. He has long blonde hair and sad brown eyes, well, sad until he gets Victor and Andrew in his pants. Mattie is young and impetious, but he knows what he wants and he goes for it with everything he has. For him my visual is a young Charlie Hunnum, Queer as Folk British version Charlie Hunnum. But I so love the cover model we used for Mattie, he just looks forelorn, very fitting for the character

The Making of Matt by Nicola Haken: Blog Tour, Review, Teasers, Excerpt and Giveaway

Title: The Making of Matt
Series: Souls of the Knight
Author: Nicola Haken
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: October 19, 2015
synopsis
Matt Carter, self-proclaimed sex-god and drummer for world renowned Souls of the Knight, didn’t have the time or inclination for planning his future, preferring to fill his days with music, women and alcohol. He didn’t want or need anything else in his life.
Until the band parted ways and he found himself no longer living the dream. 
Bored and lonely, with too much time and money on his hands, Matt turns to his best friend, Alex Clark, to help devise a new direction to take his life in. Together, they embrace their newfound venture, as owner and manager of one of L.A.’s hottest gay clubs – Kaleidoscope. For the first time, Matt has a plan. He knows where life is heading.
Until a devastating phone call turns his whole world upside down, sending him straight into the comforting arms of his best friend and leading him to doubt everything he’s ever known or believed about himself. 
Alex had always been content with his unrequited feelings for his rockstar friend, but as Matt starts to question if he might actually feel the same, he runs as fast as his feet will allow. 
Has Matt gone too far? Has his reputation as an irresponsible womanizer who refuses to take life seriously, finally managed to push his best friend away for good?
Or is Alex hiding secrets of his own?

michelle review
HELL YEAH……Now that was exactly how I had hoped Matt’s book went.    In book 1 I thought Matt was…well a twat….in book 2 he still was, but I was warming to the fact that he is completely different person behind closed doors.  Now that his book is here I am so stinking excited that we finally see what Matt & Alex’s friendship was like and how it would morph into a relationship!
I loved how Alex knew exactly who Matt was both inside and out.   Their friendship started in “Taming Ryder” and continues on into The Making of Matt.    Matt & Alex are best friends who have completely different personalities and completely different tastes (or so we thought).  While Matt is being Matt – Alex is trying to not let Matt affect him.  He is trying to keep things platonic.  He is trying to just be a friend but every time he walks in on Matt and another bimbo it gets harder and harder. Tragedy strikes, which brings Matt & Alex closer than normal.  So what happens when Matt takes a chance and throws caution to the wind?  Well…..A hell of a lot of tears, yelling, miscommunication and a secret so shocking I squealed…..not a happy jumping up and down squealing.  NO – it was an OMG-I-DID-NOT-SEE-THAT-COMING and OMG-WHERE-WILL-THEY-GO-FROM-HERE and OMG-THEY-BETTER-GET-THEIR-HEA squeal!
Once again Haken takes us on an emotional rollercoaster.   Matt & Alex go through some trying times and with the help from Uncle Sawyer (I heart him) they might be able to get passed them.  They are faced with obstacles no one should have to deal with and you’ll find yourself hoping they come out on top.   Haken was brilliant in the story she gave us.  It was real, raw and in your face, but it was exactly how Matt would want it.
You NEED to read this.  You will WANT to read this and once you start you will not be able to put it down.
****WELL F%UCKING DONE MS. HAKEN****

paula review
This was a refreshing GFY read. Matt is a “go with the flow” kind of guy, so when he finds himself attracted to his friend Alex it’s not a big drama. That’s not to say there aren’t bump in the relationship. I really liked Matt’s attitude and personality in this story. He would be someone I would love to hang out with. Alex has his own issues to deal with. I liked the way after the initial drama about Alex’s issue, both guys just kind of tackeled it head on. I do think Matt would have saved himself some heartache if he would have just told Alex what was going on with him instead of trying to hide it. Overall, i think the characters and the storyline were well writting. The flow is good and I really liked that it wasn’t an insta-love book.

excerpt
“Matt, are you telling me you think you’re in love with Alex?”

 

“No! Yeah…fuck I don’t know. I can’t be, right?”

 

 


 

“If you’d asked me an hour ago I’d have said ‘don’t be so fucking ridiculous’, but after listening to you, fuck I really don’t know. Answer me this, you said he touched your dick and you freaked. Why, if you kissed him first?”

 

 


 

“Because I almost came right there in my fucking sweatpants and it scared the shit outta me. It made me question everything I’ve ever known. I mean come on, you can’t just turn gay, right?”

 

 


 

Just saying it out loud sounded fucking ludicrous.

 

 


 

“You’ve lived an extraordinary life, Matt. Maybe it’s something that’s always been there but never had an opportunity to come out.”

 

 


 

“I’ve met plenty of guys, Saw. Never once have I been attracted to a single one of ‘em.”

 

 


 

“Have you ever had your dick out of a woman long enough to actually get to know a guy before though?”

 

 


 

“Touché.” I laughed, not just at Sawyer’s comment but at the whole situation I found myself in. “This is all Jake’s fault, you know.”

 

 


 

“And how the hell do you figure that?”

 

 


 

“Because everything was fine before he came on the scene. We were happy living for the music and women, and then he shows up with all his fucking gayness and passes it on to you. Then, like the pair of you were some kind of butt bandit magnets, Ryder comes along. Then like the gift that keeps on giving the gayitis spreads and suddenly life is all gay porn, gay clubs and gay fucking underwear. It’s gayness overload, dude! I’m fucking telling you that shit is contagious.”

 

 


 

Sawyer snickered, rolling his eyes at the same time. “Is there such a thing as gay underwear?”

 

 




 

“According to Ryder,” I said, shrugging before undoing the button on my jeans to expose the branded hem of my underwear. Sawyer raised his eyebrow, one side of his mouth curling up into a smirk. “They’re comfortable,” I said, feeling the need to defend my favorite pair of shorts. “What the fuck am I gonna do?”

Fame and Fortune PlaylistDay 1

Playlist with Song tie in Part 1

{link to playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkehmrHrmCeNW4ErNUXTJ8y8Ih4lC953L}

Good Morning everyone, and thanks to the lovely ladies for adopting me this week. I think it’s time to settle down with a cup of coffee, perhaps a mimosa, and talk about some tunes!

Every song on the playlist has meaning and relates to something in the book. Sia – Elastic Heart has to be one of my personal favorites. The song itself holds a multitude of meaning. Some say it’s a father’s heart break over his child growing up. In Fame and Fortune you could take it out of context that Mattie would have given anything to have his parents feel that way about him. The chorus of the song, Elastic Heart, it’s very much Mattie. With everything he’s been through, they still didn’t break him. He not only finds love and happiness, he thrives and grows stronger because of that love.

Rachel Platten – Fight Song. “I will scream out loud tonight, can you hear my voice alright.” Once you read the book, you’ll Fameandfortune-Customdesign_JayAheer2015-transparent-3Drenderunderstand the meaning of this song. Mattie definitely still has a lot of fight left in him.

SilverSun Pickups – Lazy Eye. One of the more fun scenes when writing this book was when Victor, Andrew, Mattie and Jordan were cooking dinner. They were just hanging out in the kitchen cooking with this song playing in the background, dancing while chopping vegetables, then dancing with each other. And then it comes in again at the end of the book and holds even more meaning, building positive memories.

You should read Fame and Fortune then go listen to the playlist and see if you can place all the songs where they play into the story, it can be a fun game!
