Their Boy by Cara Dee: Release Blitz + Excerpt + Review

Cara Dee’s THEIR BOY is on sale for a limited time! Check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!

Title: Their Boy
Author: Cara Dee
Genre: MM Romance
Release Date: January 15, 2022

Left all alone in the world—and in a very big house—after the loss of his parents, Kit Damien has struggled to find his place in society and in the kink community he longs to be a more active part of. Daddy Doms Colt and Lucas have been a happy, committed couple for eight years. But two Tops need a bottom, and their quest for a Little to make their lives complete has led them to Kit’s empty doorstep. But just as with his physical wounds, Kit’s emotional scars won’t heal overnight. Colt and Lucas must challenge him at every turn to force him to open up and let them in, to let them use their own individual methods to make him whole again. Together, the three will embark on a journey to learn about true love, growing up, the importance of sprinkles, and the rules of The Game that can make them all winners. The Game Series is a BDSM series with gay pairings where romance meets the reality of kink. Sometimes we fall for someone we don’t match with, sometimes vanilla business gets in the way of kinky pleasure, and sometimes we have to compromise and push ourselves to overcome trauma and insecurities. No matter what, two things are certain. This is not a perfect world, and life never turns out the way you planned.   

Their boy is an interesting story about a young man who is/feels utterly alone in the world. He’s made a safe haven for himself where nothing can get to him. Not pain, heartbreak, or loss..anymore. Not love, wholeness, and freedom either.

Until he meets Colt and Lucas. Two people looking for their missing piece. He just might be it if he can get out of his own way.

This book deals with the D/l kink lifestyle and features an age gap of greater than 10 years; so if this bothers you, you may not enjoy this book. The story was good and the editing was as well.

On Sale for 99¢ for a Limited Time!


When the doorbell rang, I stuttered a curse and took a shaky breath. Great start, stuttering before I’d even opened the door. This could only get worse. I skidded out of the kitchen and ran a hand through my hair. Then I adjusted the collar on my shirt—crap, should I have put on a tie? No, this was casual. I was pretty sure. Fuck. “Please like me,” I whispered, reaching the entryway. After wiping my hands along my thighs, I opened the door. And my heart stopped. No, no, no, no! Why was he here? Why, oh, fucking why? I barely registered the polite smile on Lucas’s face. I was stuck on the damn fighter pilot. Colt stood there, with a freaking USAF ball cap on, and he was eating sushi from a to-go container. My cheeks felt like they caught on fire. Lucas snagged my attention when he removed his sunglasses, and then I was kind of trapped in his steely gray eyes. Shoot me. “It’s good to see you again, Kit.” Lucas flashed that infectious smile I remembered from the munch, and I swallowed dryly. “Y-you too,” I stammered. No, seriously, shoot me! I took a breath and stepped to the side so they could enter. “I hope you don’t mind I brought Colt,” he replied as he passed me. “He was curious.” I gnashed my teeth and mustered a tentative glance at Colt, who flashed me a faint smirk and chewed on a piece of sushi. “I had to see the Raptor kid again.” His smirk widened, and he walked past me too. I was toast. This was not what I signed up for.

Romance Across the Spectrum. I’m often awkwardly silent or, if the topic interests me, a chronic rambler. In other words, I can discuss writing forever and ever. Fiction, in particular. The love story—while a huge draw and constantly present—is secondary for me, because there’s so much more to writing romance fiction than just making two (or more) people fall in love and have hot sex. There’s a world to build, characters to develop, interests to create, and a topic or two to research thoroughly. Every book is a challenge for me, an opportunity to learn something new, and a puzzle to piece together. I want my characters to come to life, and the only way I know to do that is to give them substance—passions, history, goals, quirks, and strong opinions—and to let them evolve. I want my men and women to be relatable. That means allowing room for everyday problems and, for lack of a better word, flaws. My characters will never be perfect. Wait…this was supposed to be about me, not my writing. I'm a writey person who loves to write. Always wanderlusting, twitterpating, kinking, cooking, baking, and geeking. There’s time for hockey and family, too. But mostly, I just love to write. All the links you could need in one place:

Come A Little Closer (Men of the Misfit Inn, Book Four) by Kait Nolan: Release Blitz + Review

Release Date: January 14

Griffin Powell has avoided his hometown since he left it in the rearview years ago. But the former Marine understands duty and promises, and that means dragging himself back home as part of his brother's wedding party. Which gets him thinking about a promise he made to a woman, after the best night of his life. When she, too, shows up as part of the wedding, it feels like a sign.

Always a bridesmaid, professor Samantha Ferguson is dreading this bachelorette weekend. She’s one of the lone single ladies, and the matron of honor is her high school nemesis. Sam figures she can suck it up and deal until she comes face-to-face with the big, sexy ginger mistake from her past. Can this trip home get any worse?

Turns out it can. Not only are she and Griff paired up for all the bridal party bonding activities, forcing her to relive high school hell, but Sam's best friend goes missing. When no one takes her concerns seriously, she starts a search herself--and ends up with an unwanted bodyguard whose very presence reminds her of a hot Vegas night she’s tried hard to forget.

I really enjoyed Come A Little Closer. It was so sweet and I was so glad that Sam gave Griffin another chance. I love the fact he was willing to do anything to make up for the past and how they went on a wild goose chase looking for her friend. Sam thought she was in danger and ended up where they had begun. I was happy that they got the happiness they both wanted and deserved. Even though this is book four, I didn’t feel that the others needed to be read beforehand.

FIVE (Black Hearts, Book Two) by Sara Cate and Rachel Leigh: Release Blitz + Review


FIVE by Sara Cate and Rachel Leigh is Live!

My family is everything to me.

When my life was ripped away from me, I found them.

Silas, Gabriel, and Baron—my hearts, my family, my home.

Together, we’re a dangerous family of assassins, but I’ve never been happier.

Until a member of our family goes missing.

He went out for a simple job and never came back.

Now it’s up to Baron, Silas, and I to bring him home—but what if he doesn’t want to be found?

What if the family he’s found is better than the one we have here?

And what if I find myself caught up in their web of lies while becoming strangely drawn to someone I shouldn’t be?

All I know is that I can’t live without my family, and I’ll do anything to keep them safe.

Even if that means facing the truth.

We’re nothing if we’re not together—all of us.

FIVE is book 2 in the Black Hearts series. I did not read book one, as I did not realize that this was book two. Saying that - I feel as if I didn’t miss a thing. I was able to keep up with the story, as well as the characters without an issue. The authors did a good job of connecting each other so that I didn’t miss a beat.

With that being said, I didn’t really enjoy the story. There was not enough storyline as there were 4 men sharing 1 woman. I’m not against reverse harem, and it’s actually become one of my favorite genres. The problem that I had was that it seems all they did was have sex. That’s about the entire premise of the book. Violent scene? We’ll solve it with sex. Someone has been taken against their will? We’ll solve it with sex. It just seems that was the only thing these characters did. I also had an issue with the father/son thing. It’s just not my cup of tea. Again, I’m not against RH, I just want more of a storyline and less of a porno. If there is sex in a story, I feel as if it should be more passionate and less wham-bam. I mean, this poor woman’s v*gina. Give her time to breathe!!

I have read Sara Cate before and really enjoyed it, but FIVE just didn’t do it for me. Judge for yourself, it may be right up your alley!

Risky Little Affair (Lake State University, Book Three) by Rachael Brownell: Release Blitz + Excerpt + Giveaway + Review

Title: Risky Little Affair
Series: Lake State University Series, Book Three
Genre: One-Night Stand Romance
Release Date: January 13, 2022

A one-night stand.
That’s all I wanted. All I could handle.
I had enough on my plate. Getting involved with a notorious playboy was not on my agenda. Which is why he was perfect. He didn’t do relationships and I didn’t have time for one.
He’d been stoking my fire all weekend. Whispering dirty promises in my ear. Weaseling his way under my skin. And I was ready to combust.
He agreed to my terms. Probably because I was naked, he was caught off guard, and judging by the tent in his shorts, thinking with the wrong head.
I should have known better than to take him at his word.
Two days. That’s all he lasted before he showed up at my door begging for more.
More than I had to give. More than I was willing to part with.
My time. My body.
Most importantly, my heart.
And when I said no, he persisted until I caved. Not that he had to work very hard to wear me down. He was too tempting to ignore, and I craved another taste.
The only way to protect myself from getting hurt… rules. Some to keep him at a distance, others to keep him close.
Like rule number eight… no other sexual partners. The only dorm room I wanted him sneaking in and out of was mine.
I knew I was in over my head. That what we were doing was going to blow up in our faces as soon as our friends found out. But in the moment, I couldn’t bring myself to care about any of it.
Consequences be damned.

This is the 3rd installation of the Lake State University series and wow was it amazing!! I have found a new author in Ms Brownell and I am in love with her writing. It's nice to be so sucked into a story that you forget what reality is for a while.

Alexis' only passion seems to be her books, schoolbooks that is. She wears baggy clothes, so she stays unnoticed while Micah is the one to watch out for. He’s not the relationship type and that is why Alexis gives him an ultimatum….one time is IT!! She doesn’t think she is in his league.

“He’s an Armani suit and I’m a tattered pair of Arizona jeans.”

It’s an instant connection between these two, can they stay away from each other??

I loved how Alexis and Micha were with each other. I think these two were my favorite couples of the series. The chemistry was just wild and the book was steamy and never a dull moment!!

As we pull up to the Palmer's house, I let out a soft sigh of relief. I need to put some distance between me and Micah. He hasn't said one word to me all day, yet his presence alone has my mind reeling with naughty ideas. Ones I shouldn't want to entertain but my imagination continues to defy me.

"You. Me. One night," he whispers as I turn to get out of the truck.

"Get over yourself," I state firmly.

I'm surprised the words actually come out because they weren't what I was thinking. Nope. Not even close.

I wanted to scream yes and start stripping right there, begging him to take me.

Whatever's come over me today is startling. It hasn't been that long since I've gotten laid. Hell, my longest stretch was eighteen months. A year is my average. I shouldn't be this willing and ready, especially considering who I have my sights set on.

By the time night falls, I'm barely holding it together.

Evie's been hinting at things, putting ideas in my head.

Micah's been whispering dirty thoughts in my ear. Telling me exactly what he wants to do to me. Attempting to wear me down.

I'm holding strong but no amount of alcohol is going to dose the fire burning inside me. The only thing that will is the one thing I shouldn't have.


And he knows it.

He's been reading my body language all day.

Which is why I situated myself on the other side of Kendall when we sat down to watch the fireworks.

Which is also why he's pissed off. Because he tried to get me to sit next to him and I denied him.

Which led to him storming off, Declan following, and I'm certain a whole host of other issues will follow.

As long as I stay strong and don't give in to my growing desires, everything will be fine.

I can ignore this feeling for a few days. I'll avoid him from sunup to sundown. And when the time comes to call it a night, I'll just turn my back to him and pretend he's not there. That I can't smell his intoxicating cologne.

We'll part ways on Sunday and life will go back to normal.

Work, study, repeat.

Just the way I like it. Complication free.

The thought makes me sad as I stare up at the lights exploding overhead.

In the series ...

Rachael Brownell is an International Bestselling author of new adult romance.

She lives in Michigan with her husband, son, snuggly dog, and hateful cat. She moonlights a few days a week (her excuse to get out of the house and socialize) and writes almost full time. Her first book was published way back in 2013 and since she’s released more than 30 additional titles.

When she’s not writing her next novel, you can find her hanging out with her family, watching her son play baseball, or running on the treadmill at the gym (though she skips more days than she goes). She also enjoys golfing but is still learning, so if you see her on the course… stand back.
