Forbidden Hunger - Blog Button

Forbidden Hunger - T. Gabelman


A shifter without a pack, Janna Lawson goes in search of the man who her mother died trying to protect. What she finds is Garrett Foster, a man who has the power to decide her fate and causes a hunger inside her that is forbidden to them both.




You all know that I just LOVE Teresa's Protector Series.  I rave enough about it every time a new book comes out.  Well get ready to change your panties girls! Teresa is venturing into the shifter realm and our first Alpha is HOT!!!

Janna is a mutt, well her mom is human and her dad was a shifter.  She is afraid to let her "beast" out and has suppressed the shifter side of herself.  Now she's on the run, being chased by a group of shifters who marked her mom and herself. And along the way she's picked up two pups. Sparks fly when she goes looking for her father only to find he is no longer leading the pack, the Alpha who is makes her heart beat stronger and pulls on her "beast".

Garrett realizes who Janna is as soon as he meets her.  His mate. Getting the headstrong woman to see they belong together is another thing.  She wants to run and he has to figure out a way to keep her safe. The sparks fly between these two from the very beginning and it just keeps getting hotter and hotter!

If you love the Protector's series you will totally love this one as well!  Now I have two series I have to beg more from!!!  Teresa next time we are table partners I will have to wring your neck before we have a serious talk about how you made my panties melt again!!

Guitars and Cages by Layla Dorine Review & Giveaway

Guitars and Cages Blog Tour
Title: Guitars and Cages
Author: Layla Dorine
Genre: gay fiction, urban drama, contemporary, M/M fiction
Length: Novel
Publisher: Wayward Ink Publishing


Guitars and Cages by Layla DorineAsher Logan is a bartender and a pretty wicked guitar player, when he isn’t wrecking his hands fighting in a cage. With a past he keeps hoping to outrun, Asher’s been on a downward spiral for longer than he can remember. When his sister-in-law leaves Rory, his eight-year-old nephew, in his care, Asher is forced into two things he’s never been good at: sobriety and responsibility. As he struggles to care for Rory, his own life begins to unravel.

When Asher’s brother, Alex, turns up, presenting as a girl and announcing her new name is Alexia, it further complicates matters, as does the arrival of his new neighbor, Conner. Both, in their own way, compel Asher to look at his own closely-guarded views on sexuality.

When the siblings’ older brother, Cole, reacts violently to Alexia, Asher is placed squarely in the middle of a family conflict which compels him to confront who he pretends to be versus who he really is.
Asher must choose who to trust and who to finally walk away from.

This is one of those books that you have to stick with in the beginning to find a redeeming quality with the main character. Asher is not a nice guy. He's very self centered and totally screwed up. And if you are like me you are going to want to put him through a wall a few times before you start feeling sorry for him. That being said the growth of the character throughout the story is amazing. He finally wakes up about half-way through, not that he's not still screwed up but you will like his choices more. 

Conner is a god-send in Asher's life, even though he fights tooth and nail to keep him out. Conner is such a good man, who has his own demons to work through but he is so much stronger than Asher. 

The supporting cast of this book is wonderful and beautifully written. I love Alexia and Rory is a sweetheart of a kid that makes his uncles choose to be better men (woman). 

If you can get through the first third of the book without throwing you kindle against a wall, you will find a story about how trusting those around you to pick you up when you fall can lead you to a peace you never thought to find.

About the author

LAYLA DORINE lives among the sprawling prairies of Midwestern America, in a house with more cats than people. She loves hiking, fishing, swimming, martial arts, camping out, photography, cooking, and dabbling with several artistic mediums. In addition, she loves to travel and visit museums, historic, and haunted places.
Layla got hooked on writing as a child, starting with poetry and then branching out, and she hasn’t stopped writing since. Hard times, troubled times, the lives of her characters are never easy, but then what life is? The story is in the struggle, the journey, the triumphs and the falls. She writes about artists, musicians, loners, drifters, dreamers, hippies, bikers, truckers, hunters and all the other folks that she’s met and fallen in love with over the years. Sometimes she writes urban romance and sometimes its aliens crash landing near a roadside bar. When she isn’t writing, or wandering somewhere outdoors, she can often be found curled up with a good book and a kitty on her lap.
