And this is a shipboard romance unlike any other.
 
Josh Gilbert’s well-meaning family booked a gay-friendly cruise for Christmas in order to find Josh a steady boyfriend. Hoping to escape the constant parade of bachelors—and the collapsible fishing rod dangling mistletoe his mom keeps in her purse—Josh takes solace in a growing friendship with the ship’s photographer, Nathan. Though Josh is falling for Nathan, he worries it will never be more than a shipboard fling.
 
Nathan recently became aware of his incubus heritage, and has finally learned how to control his demon side. But Josh has awaken more than just the demon’s need for orgasms–Josh has awaken Nathan’s heart. What’s developing between them is the real thing, but can Josh ever accept Nathan’s promiscuous past… and love a sex demon?
 
Amid lush tropical settings, family hilarity, holiday costume parties, sexy snorkeling adventures, gingerbread martinis, and mythical creatures, will Josh get his Christmas wish and find true love?

Book Four: Over and Again

It’s been a hell of a year in New York City. Detective Cohen Bailey is determined to put Jake Bartlett, the last remaining threat, behind bars for good. To do that, he’s going to need all the help he can get. Their team is still reeling from almost losing two of their own and Cohen knows that if there was ever a chance to prove himself, this is it.

Brock Hart is a pinch-hitter for the Department of Justice, a mobile asset that moves with the big cases and steps in to clean up messes when they occur. Prosecuting isn’t all done in the courtroom, and Brock’s got a personal connection of his own to this particular case. Detective Cohen Bailey is attractive, competent and more importantly, half Brock’s age. Brock’s better off sticking to his long-time no-strings arrangement than risking it all on Cohen.

The more they dig into the web surrounding Bartlett, the more certain they become that there’s something bigger going on. Neither of them have the time to fall into bed together, let alone fall in love, but if there’s anything Brock’s learned it’s that sometimes, the best choices are the ones you don’t mean to make.

Over and Again is the final installment and the culmination of this phenomenal series. The books leading up to this one have resulted in an entire NYPD precinct put through an emotional and physical wringer after almost losing two of their own. There’s a constant need to stay vigilant and on high alert as one more psycho, Jake Bartlett, is still at large and most likely after Police Chief James Carter and US Attorney Derek Moore. These two men have been through a living hell, and their psychological recovery is just as painful as the physical harm done.

Knowing that time is of essence, Detective Daniel Callahan is doing his best to keep their precinct running with everything they’ve got in order to bring in Bartlett. Realizing it’s just not enough, they call in the big guns in the form of Brock Hart, Dept. of Justice. He’s hot as hell, smart, and determined to help nail the last threat to James and Derek.

The guys work relentlessly and leave no stone unturned while trying to find Bartlett. A major asset is Detective Cohen Bailey, who‘s also caught the eye of Brock Hart. I love how Cohen Bailey has really come into his own in this book. He has a lot more confidence and determination in his own abilities to put an end to this whole miserable case. And hot damn, Brock is one lucky guy because Cohen is one hell of an alpha lover—he sure is all grown up now!

There are so many twists and turns and action-packed scenes that had me biting the hell outta my fingernails. The best part of it all is how everyone’s involved in this finale: Derek’s parents, James’s son and girlfriend, Detective Daniel Callahan, who is a rockstar, his boyfriend, Peter, along with Kay and the rest of the entire precinct.

What I truly loved and will greatly miss is the incredible cast of characters Brooke Edwards has created. Each one brings so much to the storyline and they have become a familiar and integral piece no matter how big or small their part.

Over and Again ends just the way it should. Everyone’s gonna be okay because this zany, sarcastic, badass bunch of lovable law folk will make sure of it. No one goes it alone. Loved, loved, loved this series. Ridiculously well written by the amazing Brooke Edwards. Five-bittersweet-stars for me as this wonderful series comes to an end.

Book One: Mens Rea

James Carter is a career cop who married young, became a widower young, and then his life revolved around his son and his job. Young is a recurring theme, he thinks, when he meets the considerably younger-than-him AUSA Derek Moore. For the first time in years, James finds himself subject to the whims of his heart.

The path to love between a hotshot lawyer and a veteran cop was never going to be smooth, not in the real world. Criminals, misunderstandings and a complete lack of communication stand in their way too. Both too stubborn to budge, and utterly convinced that their feelings aren’t reciprocated, James and Derek themselves are the biggest obstacles to their own happiness.

A murder case might be just enough to force them to get their act together.

480CBC6A-393C-4D4B-8A7B-D80E51EA0F1C This short story sets up the direction and fills in the background of what you’ll soon find out is a fantastic series. The author provides a lot of info within a limited amount of pages. It’s extremely well-written, and I was very excited to start the next one.

Book Two: Law and Disorder

James Carter and Derek Moore fought their way through attraction and misunderstandings to get to where they are today. Sure, they’re still figuring out how to make things work between their careers and families, but their whole world is rose-tinted with the glow of new love.

Reality hits with the force of a speeding truck when a criminal starts waging a campaign of terror against the justice system. Suddenly law enforcement officers and lawyers all across the city are living in fear as their careers put them right in the cross-hairs of a deranged killer and James and Derek’s honeymoon period falls to ruins.

With James’s protectiveness driving a wedge between them and Derek pulling away as the target on his back grows even bigger, their future is thrown into jeopardy. While Derek struggles with demons from his past, it’s up to James to catch the killer and put them back on the path to their happily ever after.

 

480CBC6A-393C-4D4B-8A7B-D80E51EA0F1C

This installment is a continuation of James and Derek’s story. I think it’s worth saying that this story is as much a crime/murder/mystery as it is a love story.

James Carter is a forty-four-year-old NYPD police chief, whose precinct is filled with colorful, funny, complex, and intelligent co-workers. But now that he’s romantically involved with twenty-nine-year-old US Attorney, Derek Moore, his life has been turned upside down even more so when Derek becomes the main focus of a madman’s obsession. James’s sole concern is to keep his guy safe, but that proves to be a daunting task as the two stumble and flounder while attempting to navigate the uncertainty of a new relationship when there’s a killer out there!

I love the author’s writing style. It’s similar to watching a movie or a TV crime show. Each scene feels like the camera is fading to black, and I can’t help but think of the two musical beats used in Law and Order.

This series is something else! The cast of characters, no matter how big or small a part they play, add a perfect balance, resulting in a storyline filled to the brim with creative dialogue and painstaking attention to detail. The sex scenes are non-existent but are left to the readers’ imagination through teases of playful or sensual caresses and images of clothing strewn and tangled sheets. I highly recommend this series and can’t wait to start the next one. A Five-Star read for me.

Book Three: Cause and Effect

In the aftermath of a psychopath’s obsession-fuelled murder spree through New York, Detective Daniel Callahan feels like he’s been hit by a wrecking ball. It turns out that watching your best friend and your boss fall in love only to nearly lose it all takes a toll on a guy’s emotional stability. 

Peter Saracen has an out-of-control crush on the belligerent detective who seems to want nothing more than to toss him into a cell and throw away the key. When the body of an unidentified gang member is pulled from the East River and an old nemesis breaks out of prison, Peter finds himself on a whole new collision course with Daniel.

The line between personal and professional begins to blur. The dangers of the present take aim at the fragile possibility of Daniel and Peter’s happily-ever-after, while ghosts of the past threaten the deepening bond between Daniel’s boss James Carter and Assistant US Attorney, Derek Moore. With everything against them, there might not be any coming back from this.

480CBC6A-393C-4D4B-8A7B-D80E51EA0F1C

Loved this story of Peter Saracen and Daniel Callahan, the NYPD detective who Peter has been obsessed with for some time now. Peter puts himself in harm’s way by nosying around crime scenes and winds up needing protection. As the situation escalates between a killer at large and James’s man, Derek, the whole precinct is on edge, rightfully so.

Peter seems to be a balm to Daniel’s rough edges and worms his way into his heart. Again, this installment (or episode!) is action-packed and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. No single person is truly front and center as Brooke Edwards does another outstanding job bringing in the whole cast. Positively crazy about this series and can’t wait for the next. Again … another Five-Star read!

Title: Deal Makers
Series: Dealing With Love #3 (interconnected standalone)
Author: Laura Lee
Genre: Romantic Comedy
Release Date: January 4, 2019
Cover Design: JLD Designs
LIVE RELEASE ALERT
I’VE OFFICIALLY SCREWED THE POOCH. 
 
I mean, not literally, because that would be disgusting. But I did break one of the cardinal rules of Bro Code, which is equally appalling. You see, I fell in love with my best friend’s sister after he explicitly forbid me to go near her. As if that weren’t bad enough, I went ahead and married her while sh*tfaced in Vegas. 
 
I know that I should get an annulment and forget the whole thing ever happened, despite the fact that our wedding night was the hottest thing I’ve ever experienced. 
 
The last thing I should do is go back for seconds. 
 
Or thirds. 
 
Or…you get the point. 
 
And what I definitely shouldn’t do, is say f*ck the consequences and give this marriage a real shot. 
 
But here’s the problem with that: I’m pretty sure that Charlotte Harris is the one. And if that’s the case, nothing is going to keep me away from her. Not even her brother. 
*Deal Makers is filled with lots of laughs, drunken shenanigans, and a sexy romance. It is the third installment in the Dealing With Love series but each one can be read as a standalone.
 
DREW 

“I kicked blackjack’s ass!” Charlee lifts her arms in triumph. “We should celebrate!”I steady her by the elbow as we step into the observation wheel. “Isn’t that what we’re doing right now?”

She points to the bar in the center of the pod. “Celebrations call for cocktails!” She giggles. “I said cock. Cock, cock, cockity cock. Cockleshell. Cocksure. Oh, I know! Cock-a-doodle-doo!” She crows that last word, causing the people around us to snicker. Thank fuck we’re in the twenty-one and over pod.

I tuck a thick strand of hair behind her ear and smile when she leans her cheek into my palm. “That last drink really tipped you over the edge, huh?”

On our way to the Linq’s promenade, we stopped at one of those stands that offers yardstick beakers of slushy alcohol. Charlee sucked hers down like taking a hit from a beer bong. I slurped mine a little more slowly but finished it nonetheless. I’m a big guy so it takes a lot to get me drunk, but those fucking things are huge, and we had shots right before that, so I’m actually buzzing pretty hard right now. I’m pretty sure the gorgeous brunette currently rubbing up against me like a cat has crossed over into sloshed.

“Nah.” She strokes my arm like it’s the softest thing she’s ever felt. “I’m good. Your muscles are huge, Drew. How often do you work out?” She rests her head against my bicep. “Seriously, this thing is almost as big as my head. Look!”

I laugh as I tuck her into my chest. “I work out every day if I can. If I’m at the station, I only get an hour per day but if I’m at home, I’ll go to the gym for a couple of hours.”

She wraps her arms around my waist and tips her head back. “Everyday? That’s insane. Exercise blows. I mean, I do it, but only because I fucking love to eat, but I’m miserable the whole time.”

“I actually really enjoy it.” I shrug. “If you’re that miserable, maybe you just need a workout partner. You should come with me sometime.”

Her hands wander down to my ass. “I’d rather work off calories the naked way. If you feel the need to lift weights, you can totally bench press me.” She squeezes my ass and presses her tits into my stomach to emphasize her point.

I groan as I picture lifting her deliciously naked body, pressing my lips against her skin with each downward motion. Having a boner while trapped in a small space with twenty other people isn’t ideal so as much as I don’t want to, I step back.

“Let’s get you that cocktail, Drunkie McGhee.”

 

Laura’s passion has always been storytelling. She spent most of her life with her nose in a book thinking of alternate endings or continuations to the story. She won her first writing contest at the ripe old age of nine, earning a trip to the state capital to showcase her manuscript. Thankfully for her, those early works will never see the light of day again! 
 
Laura lives in the Pacific Northwest with her wonderful husband, two beautiful children, and three of the most poorly behaved cats in existence. She likes her fruit smoothies filled with rum, her cupboards stocked with Cadbury’s chocolate, and her music turned up loud. When she’s not writing or watching HGTV, she’s reading anything she can get her hands on. She’s a sucker for spicy romances, especially those involving vampires, bad boys, or cowboys!
