NEW RELEASE: Going All In (Men of Boyzville, #1) by Kristine Cayne #MM #Romance



Hi everybody! Today I've got a brand-spanking-new release from Kristine Cayne! Going All In is the first book in the M/M erotic romance series The Men of Boyzville. If you love sizzling hot gay romance that makes you laugh, cry, and say "AWWW!!!", you'll love this story.

GOING ALL IN



The Men of Boyzville, Book One

Life has been tough on Harry Cooper. Rejected by his best friend, abandoned by his family, Harry spurns relationships, settling instead for backroom hookups and one-night stands. Out and proud, he scrapes by selling drinks in gold lamรฉ trunks while struggling to make a name for himself as a musician. Desperate for a change, he and his roommate take a trip to Vegas, where Harry finds himself getting more than he’d bet on.

Fragrance chemist Ashton Montgomery is the man behind the Ashton George line of perfumes and colognes. He is also a gay man hiding behind the faรงade of one of New York City’s most eligible straight bachelors. After a failed paternity suit against him, he sneaks off to Vegas to celebrate his freedom. But is he really free, or is he locked into the future his parents have mapped out for him—CEO to the family business and married to a society woman of their choosing?

A chance meeting at a rock concert in Sin City catapults Harry and Ashton into an adventure where each man comes head to head with what he fears most. Can they learn to trust each other as a couple, or is undeniable lust all they have? When all the cards are on the table, they each must decide whether to fold or go all in.

EXCERPT

Harry Cooper burst through the door of his room at the Hard Rock Hotel. It closed behind him with a dramatic clang. “Girl, you will not believe—”

Spotting his best friend Melissa Kincaid half-asleep in a pile of pillows on the massive bed they’d had to share to get the special “Getaway to Vegas” deal, he gasped and slapped her boxer-clad ass. “Seriously? We’re in Sin City, and all you can do is sleep?”

“Yeah, yeah,” she muttered, rubbing her butt cheek as she sat up. “Did you get tickets to something good?”

“Yes.” He sucked in a deep breath. “You won’t fucking believe—oh my God.” He waved a hand in front of his face.

Melissa rolled her eyes. “Please tell me this isn’t another Madonna drag-show revival thing. I had enough of that last year.”

Harry scowled indignantly. That show in Portland had been a blast. But no. “This is a million times better.”

“Better than Madonna? Well, in that case…” She rolled her hand in a go-on motion.

Harry sighed. Melissa just wasn’t in the spirit of their holiday. Her boyfriend of two years had broken up with her right after Christmas, announcing that he was going to London to complete his Ph.D. She’d begged him to continue their relationship long distance, but he’d been adamant. This was going to be a new chapter in his life, and one he’d be writing alone. Yeah. Dick, much?

But that was exactly why they’d left soggy Seattle to come to Vegas. To soak up the sun and the booze and forget about the fact that Valentine’s Day had just passed, and they were both hopelessly single.

“Come on, sweetie,” he coaxed. “Try to guess.”

“Okay, okay.” She shifted around on the bed, adjusting her T-shirt, which had slipped off her shoulder. She was just so cute with her big green eyes and auburn, shoulder-length curls. If he weren’t gay, she’d be the girl for him.

She tapped a long nail against her chin. “Celine?”

Barely able to keep from blurting out his secret, he pressed his lips tightly together and shook his head.

“Cirque du Soleil?”

“No, but that would have been awesome.”

“Hmm.” She shoved off the bed and pushed aside the curtain, probably so she could see the show billboards out on the strip. Cheater.

She glanced at him over her shoulder, her eyes wide and hopeful. “Phantom? I’ve always wanted to see that.”

He laughed. “You know Gerard Butler isn’t in the play, right?”

“I can pretend.” She shot him a sassy smile.

“This is better anyway.”

“Nothing is better than Gerry as the Phantom.”

He sashayed across the room and got in her face, grinning like a loon. “This is way better. Guess again.”

Her gaze returned to the strip. When she spotted the sign, he heard the hitch in her breath. She whipped around and grabbed his shoulders. “The Red Hot Chili Peppers?”

“Yes!”

He said it much louder than he’d intended. Okay, he’d shouted, but could you blame him? They were going to see the freaking Red Hot Chili Peppers, and he’d get to hear Flea, the best bassist in the world, live!

“Oh my God. Are you serious? Those tickets have to cost more than our whole trip.”

He shot her a wink. “I may have done some wheeling and dealing with the concierge.”

Her eyes swept over him and narrowed. “Please tell me no sexual favors were exchanged in this transaction.”

Shooting out his hip, he slapped a hand to his chest. “Moi? I’ll have you know, Miss Melissa, I do have other talents.”

Waving her hands in front of her face, she ducked her head. “I really, really don’t want to know.”

New 5-star review for Mafia romance RECKONING (Blood and Honor, #4)!

You know what makes my day? Waking up to an awesome 5-star review like this one for RECKONING:

“I have been along for this ride since the beginning and all I can [say] is WOW!!! 

Ruggero was one of my favorite characters from the very beginning and I'm thrilled he finally got his chance at love. When you look up "rough around the edges" in the dictionary you will find a picture of Ruggero, that's him to a T! Dana smoothes out some of his edges and gives her readers another look at him and he softens, slightly, when Loredana comes into his life. The spark between them is explosive despite the danger that is around them; when you have a STRICT and no-nonsense judge and a Mafioso, what could go wrong?! Right?!

Ruggero and Loredana's love scenes make the reader reach for a glass or water and beg to trade places with her…. You cannot go wrong with RECKONING; well, only if you don't dive in and hold on tight.”

If you're a reader who takes the time to write reviews, thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Reckoning (Blood and Honor, #4) by Dana Delamar

Reckoning

A brutal hitman. 
A fervent anti-Mafia judge. 
A far-ranging conspiracy…

Everyone thinks Ruggero Vela is just an assassin, a cold-hearted thug. But a passionate heart beats underneath his granite exterior. When he finally meets the woman of his dreams, she turns out to be Loredana Montisi, a fervent anti-Mafia judge hell-bent on prosecuting his Mafia don boss. The beautiful judge has no idea she's being used as a pawn by much darker forces with a truly frightening agenda. 

With enemies closing in on every side, Ruggero walks a dangerous tightrope—can he win Loredana's heart and her help, or will he lose her and the only family he knows?

Want a little taste of the book? 

Ruggero ignored her and pulled out a pack of cigarettes and lit one. Loredana watched him take a drag, but when the smoke started flowing from his nose and mouth, she lost it. 

She snatched the cigarette from his lips and tossed it to the floor, crushing it with her shoe.

“What the hell?” he asked.

“My grandfather died of emphysema.”

“Why would you care what happens to me?”

“No one deserves that kind of death.”

“Even a Mafia thug?”

“Even a man like you.”

Something in his face changed, darkened, and his eyes lasered in on her. He grabbed hold of her arms. “Is that how you see me? As a man? Or do you see me as a Mafioso?” He pulled her close, his eyes flicking back and forth across her face, before dipping down to stare at her lips.

Both of them were breathing hard. She placed her hands on his chest, his muscles twitching beneath her palms. Her heart was pounding, her stomach flipping. “I see you as a man,” she said, the words just barely above a whisper.

Before she could second-guess herself, she leaned in, rising up on her toes, and pressed her lips to his. For just an instant, he kissed her back, then his hands clamped down on her biceps, and he broke the contact. “What the fuck are you doing?”

“I don’t know.”

Those wolf’s eyes drilled into hers. “You’d better know, Loredana. I’m not a man you can play with.”

She stared at him for a moment that stretched on and on. What did she want? She knew; she just needed the courage to own up to it. Then she stepped closer and raised her lips to his. “I’m not playing with you,” she murmured against them.

With a groan, he hauled her flat against his well-muscled body, his mouth coming down on hers in a searing kiss. She clutched his suit jacket as he took control, his tongue delving into her mouth, his hands fisting in her hair.

She shouldn’t be doing this, she knew it, and yet she couldn’t stop. And why should she? She might not have much time left, and if she was going to die, she was going to die happy—or something like it.
