But now that the danger has passed, he returns home to reclaim Brand. The biggest question is, is it too late?
Brand West is a paramedic with a broken heart. Just after high school graduation, the love of his life hopped a Greyhound to Hollywood, leaving without explanation. Now, five years later, Brand is determined to forget about Carson by throwing himself into his career, his community, and—thanks to his best friend playing matchmaker—a hot new lover. But now Carson’s back in town, as irresistible as ever, leaving Brand with two choices: find closure and move on, or give first love a second chance.

The past never stays buried… A month has passed since the Eve Murders and my Awakening that cost me my sight. While I have learned to use the Astral Sight as my guide around the world, I am still reeling from the traumatic events of the battle between Obsidian Moon’s Crymsen Crescent and the Ragnar Circle. While we have Regina Reuel, the figurative head of the Circle, in custody, there are still many unanswered questions about the Circle’s motives. I have finally returned to the field as an active member of the Crymsen Crescent thanks to physical therapy with my mate Arawn Grey and my captain, the dragon prince, Casimir Lorcan. But the peace in Paradise Grove doesn’t last long as hellhounds are going missing and turning up as charred corpses in Southside. Although this district has always been a dangerous part of town, the amount of violence is not only worrisome but familiar as a copy-cat revives the Wolf of Eden, the monster of Paradise Grove. The second installment of the Crymsen Crescent Trilogy, A Roar of Flames, will have you turning the pages to solve pieces of Luce’s past.
Bloody footprints trailed behind her as her feet smacked the concrete and reverberated off the black steel walls. Her orange eyes glittered with tears as she slammed against the heavy door that led to freedom. Ashlyn’s breathless sobs, absorbed by the desperate pleas and harsh growls, sounded weak even to her ears as she stumbled past the line of obsidian cages. The other prisoners pressed their faces against the jet black bars. The madman who had taken them off the streets with promises of food and water—a place to rest—forced them into purgatory instead.She ran past them. Not looking back as they cried out her name. She didn’t have time to break them out, didn’t have time to save them from a fate worse than death. The leather straps from the metal chair he tied her to dangled from her bloody wrists as she slid around a corner, her feet freezing and numb. Almost there. She was close to freedom.Her legs burned as she took the steps two at a time, but the door was right there, and she only needed to reach out her hand—“Ah, ah,” a devilishly sweet voice sounded in her ear seconds before a hand tangled in her sable curls and yanked. Screaming, her hands instinctively reached up to fight the fist that threatened to rip her hair from the scalp. “You should know better than to run. It only increases the bloodlust.”Ashlyn whimpered, her nails leaving deep cuts on his wrists and hands, but he refused to let go, even as his blood filtered through the air. “Shall we try again?” His sinister laughter didn’t match the cherubic features or the delicate baby blue eyes that looked down at her with hatred. “No, no, please.” Ashlyn’s tears streaked down her dirty cheeks. She reached for her kernel of magic and begged for it to come to her aid, for the blistering heat of her fire to roast this insane bastard before he could kill her, but an obsidian wall blocked her magic. Blocked it and sealed it away. Dragged by her torturer, she could only whimper as her thoughts turned to her baby brother. She would never keep her promise to him, never see him graduate high school, never see him off to college, never see him marry. Her warden whistled a cheery tune as if he wasn’t about to feed her to a monster that devoured its victims whole—magic and flesh and bone. She kicked her legs and raked her nails down his arms in a vain attempt to free herself, one last chance to break free and see her brother again. To tell him she was sorry, and she tried to be there. No matter how she tried, no matter how she struggled, his grip only tightened, and his indifference to pain only infuriated and filled her with despair at the same time.The same cell mates who watched her flee turned their faces away from her as he dragged her past them. It was her turn to face the gods’ trial by fire. BOOK #1 ON SALE NOW!

She never thought she’d see him again. But nature has other plans. The serious kind.
Now she just has to tell him the truth.
So how do you tell somebody their life will never be the same again?

“You’re gonna be there for your kid, right?” His brother asked.
“Of course I am.” Logan was as surprised as Gray by the vehemence in his voice.
“What about the mom? You said it was casual. Does that mean you’re not a thing?”
Logan shook his head. “I asked her to marry me. She said no.”
His brother started to laugh.
“What?” Logan asked, his jaw twitching.
“One minute you’re telling me you don’t know what to do about the baby, that this thing was casual. The next minute you’re saying you asked her to marry you. I’m getting whiplash, bro.”
“Join the club,” Logan muttered. “It felt like the right thing to do.”

The blurb gives enough away as to the concept of the third book , and while it is easily read as a Standalone, as I’ve read the previous it was a great addition/continuation of the ‘Heartbreak Brothers’ with this time featuring one of the twins Logan (who’s been in Boston for a number of years, building a successful restaurant business). I don’t want to go into any great detail so not to spoil it so all I will say is that again, this was an engaging, well written story from start to finish, I enjoyed how Courtney and Logan’s relationship developed, there’s plenty of heat, emotional moments, and some hilarious interactions- especially between the brothers, added drama along the way, and an Epilogue that also sets up for the next brother’s story (Logan’s twin Cam)

RHR REVIEW by Vicki RHR RATING 5*/5
As the blurb gives enough away, all I will say about this is that once again, Jacob has created a well written, DUAL POV , with great attention to detail, story with many LOL moments throughout. I really enjoyed the back and forth banter between not only Roxanne and Adam, but with the characters that I had read about in Mantrum (Book 1), having said that it is easily read as a Standalone, as well as being an addition to the series. The chemistry slowly builds between them, leading to the inevitable, and of course, there is a bit of drama towards the end when truth’s come out. As for the Epilogue, I LOVED IT! (hopefully with there being two other Winters brothers~ younger Larsen oldest Jack there will be more from all these characters at some point)
Jacob Chance grew up in New England and still lives there today. He’s a martial artist, a football fan, a practical joker and junk food lover.A writer of sports romcoms and romantic suspense, he plans on providing you with many more stories.
And let me tell you, it’s a means to an end, my friend.
My brothers and I are the kings of Las Vegas. Owning our own male revue club has been a fantasy of mine for a long time.
And now that dream is finally a reality.
My nerves are shot.
The stress is real.
And I need just one night to let loose.
But, after a night I won’t soon forget it’s time for the club’s premier.
And the new bartender, Shayne is late. I’ll have his head for this.
But when Shayne shows up for his shift, he’s not exactly what I was expecting.
Shayne’s a girl.
A very pretty, no, beautiful woman with striking green eyes.
The same eyes I gazed into the night before.
My life just got a whole lot more complicated. Because I’m the boss and I can’t fraternize with the employees. But, there’s just something about Shayne I can’t stay away from, and pretty soon I won’t be able to stay away no matter how hard I try.
The final book and it’s the youngest of the triplets, Damien’s turn. Without giving much detail away, I did enjoy reading , again there was some funny moments between the guy’s, it was a fairly quick read, DUAL POV’s ,plenty of heat between the leads, although I did feel that some of story to be slightly rushed, however, the Epilogue was pretty sweet!

RHR REVIEW by Vicki RHR RATING 4*/5
This is a very short MM novella, a ‘Hook Up’ that is H.O.T. and an added twist to the tale that although I enjoyed reading, I was left wanting more!!
Goodreads – “The Hookup is a very quick novella that was steamy and so hot that you will be in danger of being burnt” SiKReviews – “A sweet book about a couple who spice up their marriage in a unique way” Goodreads – “Kindle Alexander never lets you down when reading about the men in their stories.”
Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It’s always a surprise to see what’s coming next!I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it’s true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women’s hair!Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life – I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal… I don’t want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I’m going to tell you about KindlI tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It’s its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her.Find out more by visiting http://www.kindlealexander.com or email me at email@example.com
And my green eyes have been described as ‘lady magnets’ by the Vegas Tribune.
The Trifecta sensation is only the dirtiest male revue show Vegas has ever seen. We’ve been blazing the stage for a while and have gained quite the fan base. Women travel from across the country just to catch a glimpse of us.
I’ll let you in on a little secret…I hate every second of it.
It’s just not me.
I despise being viewed as a piece of meat.
When my new neighbor, Emma moves in next door, I hate that she sees me the same way.
But, when her and her daughter are in danger, a possessive need to protect her takes over.
The more I get to know Emma, the more I realize she’s more like me than I realize. And I won’t let her past stand in the way of our future.
The second book in the series, this time it’s Axel who’s about to find the one for him, and she’s his new neighbour- who also is a single mum with a cute 3 year old daughter Felicity. Their first meeting is not so great, however, there is an attraction on both sides-which as the story goes, soon becomes H.O.T! Told in DUAL POV’s , it is another quick, fun read, that can easily be read as a Standalone, yet an enjoyable follow on from the first story- the guy’s are still working towards taking over the club that’s helped make them who they are, the interactions between them made me LOL ,and of course there is some added drama connected to Emma and Felicity. I did feel that it ended a bit abruptly, but with Damien’s book to come, I can’t wait to see what will happen next.
