She stole his car, so he stole her heart…

I saw something I never should have seen.

I took something they wanted back.

I was desperate.

Alone.

Hunted.

So, I did something I never would have normally done.

I stole a car.

Not just any car.

His car.

Now I have no choice but to trust him.

Only he can help me get out of this mess.

Then, when we both become hunted,
And when feelings begin to complicate things,
Can I still count on his protection?

Can I trust what is happening between us to be real?

Because, as some people say: there is nothing quite like love at first … crime.

Lost Breed MC, #1
by Ali Parker & Weston Parker
Publication date: September 12th 2017
Genres: Adult, Romance
A life of darkness only pays while the sun stays hidden.
BLURB
The shadows of the past follow me no matter where I turn. Mistakes I thought were long dead and gone seem to nip at my heels and tear at my soul.

I’m not a good man. Not worthy of redemption.

As President of the Lost Breed MC, I fight, f*ck and take what’s mine. But everything changed in the blink of an eye, and now I got a kid, my brother’s kid. The teenage bastard is just like me. And he’s gone missing.
My only hope is that the pretty cop down at the station is willing to help a criminal like me out. My focus should be on the kid, but I can’t stop thinking about owning her, marking her, making her mine. She thinks she’s going to be able to resist me forever. She’s wrong.

I’m driven mad with the desire to gain her affection, to be the one that wakes her up in the dead of night to take advantage of her softness and remind her who’s King.

But what cost would the reaper require to give me such bliss? And am I willing to pay it?

Virtual Tour w/Guest Post - M/M Romance - The Boys of Brighton Series by M. Tasia

The Boys of Brighton Series
by M. Tasia
Publisher: Boroughs Publishing Group
Cover Artist: Boroughs Publishing Group
Genre: M/M Romance
 
The Book Junkie Reads…. GUEST POST from M. Tasia
Topic: What makes m/m romance so hot?

Typically, my MCs are strong men. Going on the journey of them opening up and showing real emotions, my fans - male and female – say is hot. As depicted in traditional romance, men have been reluctant to share and show their emotions. While I applaud those authors that have leveled the playing field and created female characters that aren’t interested in sharing, we have to acknowledge that the strong, silent type is still a draw. When you have two (or more) men equally unwilling to demonstrate how they feel, that tension makes finding their HEA that much sweeter.

I’ve asked my fans what drew them to m/m romance and the answers varied. Some have said reading about two men together is super hot, others have said they love the romantic dynamic between two men, which is different from the male/female dynamic. Others have told me that the storylines that involve alpha males draw them in because men relate to each other differently than they relate to women. Many of my readers have said they won’t return to m/f romances now that they’ve become hooked on m/m romances.



My fans represent every sexual orientation, and while they have preferences, ultimately their attraction to a book comes down to the story. Build a solid story with a strong romance, add a few hot men and a happy ending, what more could you ask for?

Blurb
This sassy, spirited baker is fine with heat—but is her fake fiancé too hot to handle?

Bakery owner Willow Dalton’s friendship with Zane Walker has always been a bit complicated. Now a scrumptiously hot A-list actor, Zane’s always had a reputation as player. He’s arrogant, and he’s definitely not boyfriend material. Sure, he did Willow a favor by agreeing to take her virginity before college, but is that reason enough to go along with a fake engagement a decade later—even if it comes with a real diamond ring?
Zane should have known better. Nothing involving Willow has ever been easy. Still, he knows her better than anyone, and becoming America’s hottest new leading man means cleaning up his reputation. An “engagement” to curvy, sass-mouthed Willow is the perfect PR move . . . provided no one gets hurt.

Now Zane and Willow’s little white lie has turned into an irresistible recipe for sweet temptation. And soon no one will be able to tell the difference between their fake engagement or the real thing—including them.

A now successful professional golfer, he’s recently suffered a major setback in the form of a possible career-ending injury. With the upper hand, can Charlotte forgive Garrett for his past ways, and for his more recent Don Juan lifestyle? Will she even want to? And, can Garrett change his ways for a second chance with Charlotte, who may just be the perfect fit for him?
