Review: I have to admit I’m a Jaxx Steele fan. This author has a talent for writing novellas which develop rich characters, weave tight plot lines, and pack in some sexual and emotional heat. Not all readers enjoy reading shorter stories, but this author makes a shorter-lengthed novel feel longer.

In this story we meet Phillip Drake. In college he has a one night encounter with a woman (despite the fact he’s gay), which results in the birth of his son Tyrell. While this wasn’t the turn he envisioned for his life, his son brings him great joy, and Phillip accepts the responsibility of fatherhood without complaint or resentment.

When an unfortunate accident claims the life of Tyrell’s mother, Phillip is left picking up the pieces of his broken life. Travelling home to his mother and sister, he begins to rebuild a foundation for himself and his son. But two things stand in his way of moving forward: Tryell’s grandparents are fighting Phillip for custody of the child. While they’d shown no interest in any of their lives prior to their daughter’s death, their homophobia and greed (over inheritance money) threaten to break Phillip and Tyrell apart. The other thing that stands in the way of Phillips happiness is the resurfacing of his former lover, James, who never lost his feelings for Phillip. Of course, Phillip never lost his feelings for James either, but his life is so complicated, how could he possibly drag someone else into the mess?

What I loved about this story was the believability of the emotions. Phillip had real struggles. The way his in-laws tried to use his sexuality as a weapon against him in their battle for custody was painful to experience, yet he handled himself with dignity and pride. The heat between Phillip and James was steamy, and the cast of secondary characters were well-developed.

My only complain about the story is that, as a shorter-length book, there wasn’t enough time to go really deep. I would have enjoyed watching the relationship between Phillip and James develop more slowly, seeing the struggles before the reconciliation. I also would have enjoyed the torture of watching the custody battle drawn out a bit more. But, by nature, a shorter novel requires ends be tied up more quickly than in longer books.

A definite recommended read.

TITLE: Marked!

AUTHOR: Jaxx Steele

PUBLISHER:  Totally Bound PublishingMarked!

LENGTH:  55 pages

BLURB:

Sharing what you know with your lover can give him the power he needs to win, especially when he’s fighting a rogue wolf.

Mark Delonco was betrayed, ostracized, rejected, beaten and left for dead by a pack brother. As he wanders the forest, an unfamiliar scent brings him to a gruesome scene—and his betrayer. Another confrontation brings not only victory for the moment but also the possibility for love and redemption.

Victor Bradley could never maintain a relationship with anyone and he didn’t know why. It wasn’t that something was wrong with the men he chose, it was just that no one ever felt right to him. While visiting his forest home, a stranger appears at the door and changes his life. How can he know a man he has never met?

REVIEW: Wow! The start of this story is amazing, adrenaline pumping to the point I was left breathless. As you can imagine I was glued to my chair.

This is a sweet paranormal romance oozing with sensuality. It is action packed as you can imagine after all, Mark was a rejected pack member. His betrayer is still around and continuing to be a bully and a deceiver.

Victor is a victim of this betrayer and you need to read how he became of victim. The romance between Victor and Mark is almost instant once Victor becomes an adult. I struggled in that scene, I must say partly the dialogue was not unique so I was not shocked or left breathless and partly because of the instant start of their bonding. It spends a fair amount of time of the sex scene between Mark and Victor which is a nice read but is fluffy and predictable language like “My God, you are incredible! I have wanted to feel like this for so long.”

The other thing is Mark at the beginning appeared to be the alpha but somehow Victor with his human abilities was another alpha. I couldn’t get my head around that but saying that I liked how Mark was portrayed. He had weaknesses so he was more than just a handsome werewolf. He often was losing his fight with Raymond who is the betrayer in the story but mark still did not quit and tried to win his rightful place in this pack. That part was very endearing.  The fight between Mark and Raymond was described well and was easy to visualize for me which was very engaging.

This is an easy to read story with a predictable plot but nevertheless still an enjoyable story.

A sweet little story with a little magic thrown in.

Part Of The Posse by Jaxx Steele
Release Date:
Publisher: 
Pages: 51
Source:  

Les Browning traveled with his trusted group of men for years. As the company made a cattle run from Texas to Kansas, Les met Colt, a young cook looking to find his way in the world. They hit it off immediately, but Les couldn’t get too close to Colt until the men in his party gave the okay for Colt to travel with them.  Can Colt ultimately prove himself worthy to be a part of their clique so that he and Les could be together?

 

 

Review:   Sometimes it’s hard to write a review of a short book, especially when it’s only a little over 50 pages. But, I have high praises for this book. Mr. Steele has taken two incredibly chiseled men, combined them with a richly detailed historical plot line and turned out a story that has made me a 100% fan for life.

Les is the head of a cattle moving posse. He’s stayed behind in Alameda while the rest of his men went on ahead. After a rough winning hand of cards, and a brawl in Tilly’s saloon, he’s ready to head on to his posse….until he lays eyes on the sexy young half Indian stranger who stirs his body.

Colt is half Indian and just trying to find a place to belong. In a time when Indians aren’t always accepted, and his choice in lovers is frowned upon by most all, he’s happy to have found acceptance in the older man he’s laid eyes on. The plus side is, Les’s posse needs a cook….the down side? He may not be accepted as easily into the posses as Les has accepted him, both in and out of the bed. After a month of lonely nights, while trying to prove himself to Buck, Les’ posse partner, can he be convinced to stay on? Or will he lose his heart forever and have to stay behind?

Finding out what went on with these two amazing characters was a wonderful journey. Both characters are vibrant and full of heart, and just want happiness.  The story is  full of meaning, hope, understanding and acceptance and a great read. I am anxious to see if Mr. Steele creates a series from this book, as I’d love to see more of the other posse members, especially Dash and Butch!

I really liked this book because the main character acts selflessly even though it’s very hard for him, and then gets rewarded. A very romantic plot!Artis has had a crush on Kris since college, but nothing ever came of it because Kris went off to become a very successful motorcycle racer. When they run itno each other at a photo-up after a race ten years later, both of them are made to think about redefining their lives.

The passion between Artis and Kris was high and the emotions didn’t get left behind. Just the way I like it.

What would you do if your deepest fantasy was fulfilled. Mitch is about to find out

After a night of Truth or Dare with three of the closest people to him, Mitch is left on a high as not only did he have to do the walk of a dare, but he received a most unexpected call from a would be suitor and he was looking forward to hooking up.

Life goes on and he is finding himself liking the connection he has made and where it seem to be going, that is until he is kidnapped and awaken to two of the most amazing men – only thing they were on picture.

His disappointed only last a few minutes as two equally impressive men are his for the night and they intend to make his fantasy come through – all of them.

This is really a short read – very short and it is Jaxx Steele at fun if i could put a phrase on it. DREAM DELIVERED is not only funny and playful but it ensure that satisfaction is had by all.

A sweet read.

Greg Santos is a hard working, big city man who loves to spend his vacations skiing. Coming to Lake Tahoe for the first time he’s looking forward to relaxing and spending time alone on the slopes. His first morning there however he wakes up to find a gorgeous stranger in his cabin.

Tom Stockli’s car was stuck in a snow bank and with a big storm moving in the closest shelter is Greg’s cabin. The men settle down to wait out the storm and soon the attraction they feel to each other is getting hot enough to melt the snow. Greg is not looking for a vacation hook-up or any kind of relationship but it’s been over a year since his last boyfriend and Tom is hard to resist. As the saying goes, ‘resistance is futile’ and before the day is over the men are hitting the sheets instead of the slopes.

This was a quick read, about 16 pages without counting extra non-story pages, and takes place in just a day’s time. It’s basically the story of two guys meeting, recognizing their attraction and acting on it. There is a HFN ending as they find they live and work relatively close to each other and so there is talk of getting together again after their vacation is over.

Given the shortness of the story there is no character growth to speak of and the plot is very basic but it is well written and entertaining. The sex scene was hot although it did give me pause as there is no mention of using condoms in the scene.

Overall I enjoyed this quick sexy story.
