HUMANITARIAN AWARD DAY 2: AMY'S PICK!

HELLO FRIENDS, WE ARE BACK WITH DAY 2 OF OUR HUMANITARIAN AWARDS, AND TODAY IS AMY CASEY'S DAY, AND BOY HAS SHE PICKED A GREAT ONE! SO HERE IS THE AWARD THAT GOES TO AMY'S HUMANITARIAN: AIMEE NICOLE WALKER! 



I LOVE AMY'S CHOICE! THIS AUTHOR GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND FOR HER FELLOW MAN, LET'S SEE WHAT AMY HAS TO SAY ABOUT HER! 

In my opinion Aimee Nicole Walker is not only an amazing author of great books but an amazing person to boot!!!  Aimee's books have many levels of feelings to them. She writes about men loving men, about the struggles of life and the happiness of life for these men.   If you haven't already, you must indulge and start reading Only You, what an fantastic books, it was my first book by Aimee, they only get better from there! 

Let me give you a little look into Aimee, and why I think she so deserves this.   She is a very giving person to all those around her without judgement.   But I believe one of her strongest assets would be her belief that love is love and everyone should be able to love who they want. A huge supporter of many charities for the LGBT community, Aimee took it one step further during Pride month.   She ask readers to list charities in their area or one that they love and then she picked one each week during June to donate money too!!   I'm sure that was a hard decision to choose just one but she did!!  

Aimee encourages and supports other authors in the MM genre by blogging and helping getting their books out in support of the LGBT community.  

She continually is a strong voice for the LGBT community whether it be on social media, in her home state of Ohio or around the world, they have her overwhelming support.   She's a wife, a mother and a survivor, and a safe place for the LGBT community. 

I COULDN'T AGREE MORE! GREAT CHOICE AMY, AND CONGRATS AND MUCH LOVE AIMEE NICOLE WALKER! COME BACK TOMORROW AND SEE WHICH AUTHOR WILL BE HONORED ON DAY 3!

SAVING SEBASTIAN RELEASE DAY REVIEW & CHARACTER INTERVIEW!!


HELLO FRIENDS, TODAY I HAVE QUITE A POST FOR YOU! IN ADDITION TO MY RELEASE DAY REVIEW OF SAVING SEBASTIAN, A CATHARSIS NOVEL:  CUSTOS SECURITIES #3 BY LUNA DAVID: I ALSO HAVE A CHARACTER INTERVIEW WITH GIDEON AND SEBASTIAN! SO LET'S GET TO IT! 



THIS QUOTE IS SIMPLE BUT PERFECT, IT IS IN HONOR OF A LESSON SEBASTIAN HAS TO LEARN IN THIS STORY. 

Saving Sebastian
A Catharsis Novel
Custos Securities #3
by: Luna David
reviewed by: Becky

Gideon McCade—weighed down by memories of his previous life as a Navy SEAL and a CIA agent—has blood on his hands. He turns to his BDSM club, Catharsis, and Dominating submissives to get him through the daily grind of civilian life. Knowing his past is too much to inflict on a life partner, he keeps his connections brief and superficial. When his former life comes back to haunt him, his desire for revenge pulls him back into the shadows, darkening his hopes for a future in the light.

Temporarily sidelining his career as a tattoo artist, Sebastian Phillips works as a composite artist for the local police department. To alleviate the inescapable burden of a congenital medical condition, he immerses himself in his art and seeks the catharsis of submission. But with life weighing heavily on his shoulders and darkness encroaching, he yearns for a contract with a Dominant that sees past the protective barriers he’s erected to the vulnerable submissive within.

When happenstance brings Gideon and Sebastian together, their connection is undeniable. The knowledge that they are both too damaged to form permanent bonds of love causes them to rely on an impersonal contract to fulfil their physical needs. But staying emotionally detached becomes impossible, and breaking their contract seems the only option. Will Gideon’s need for vengeance and Sebastian’s declining health destroy what’s grown between them, or will they help each other find their way back into the light?



I have been waiting for this book for what seems like forever, and Luna made the wait worth it and then some! I knew Sebastian's story would be gut wrenching from what little we had of him in Braden's story, but this book will take you through the emotional wringer! It is so worth it though! 

Sebastian has a hard time making real friends because he has a hard time letting people in, will he meet the Dom that can change all that? Will Sebastian confide in Gideon and his friends before it's too late? 

Gideon sees the perfect submissive in Sebastian, but that is all he wants, he makes clear to Sebastian that he doesn't do relationships, but what if his heart feels different? Can he convince Sebastian that love is worth taking a chance on? Or will Gideon figure things out too late? 

This is a must read friends, along with the rest of the series! You will be so glad you spent time with Sebastian and Gideon! 

                                                 the 5 Chocolate Milk Rating :P

HAHA, HOW COULD I NOT DO THIS RATING! GRAB THE BOOK BELOW AND SEE WHY!!


NOW IT'S TIME FOR THE INTERVIEW!! THIS WAS A BLAST AND WE HOPE YOU GUYS ENJOY IT!!

Bec- Hey, guys, thanks for answering my questions, they won't be too painful, I promise :). 

Gideon: *sprawled back in his chair, legs spread, arm behind his boy, gripping Sebastian’s neck* Hi, Bec. We’re happy to be here.
Sebastian: *smiles shyly, gives a little finger wave, curves his body closer to Gideon’s* Hi.

1.      This is for you both, how did you come into the D/S world? Did you find it was something you always needed? 
Gideon: *Gideon glances at his boy and kisses him on the temple*
Sebastian: *glances up at his Dom and nods as unspoken permission was granted* Uh, well, I was in college and working part time at a tattoo studio. The owner was a Dom and I got involved with him. He basically said if I wanted to be in a relationship with him, I needed to be trained as a submissive. I was a little resentful at first, but when I went through my training, I realized it had been what was missing for me. It felt like coming home.
Gideon: *gently clasps the back of Sebastian’s head, as his boy rests it on his shoulder* I started right after Hell Week of my BUD/S SEAL training. It was a nearly impossible week of grueling physical tests and if you pass through the training successfully, they allow you a bit of leave. There was a BDSM club not far from the dive bar everyone frequented on a regular basis. A couple of my teammates had mentioned it, so I told them I was going to check it out. *Gideon chuckles at himself* They wouldn’t let me in. I had to fill out an application to be allowed through the doors. They probably got a lot of military guys in and out of those doors trying to see what was what. I filled it out right then and there and had a tour of the club that night. Started my Dom training there, as I continued my SEAL training on base. *grins* I never did go back to that dive bar.
Sebastian: *pulls away, mouth dropped open* Really?
Gideon: *smirks* Really.
Sebastian: Why didn’t I know this?
Gideon: *shrugs* I dunno. We’re backwards, remember?
Sebastian: *shakes his head, muttering* So backwards.

Bec- If this is backwards, who the hell wants to go forward! Thanks for that answer, it was great! 

2.      This one is for Sebastian: When did you know that you and Braden would be great friends? 
Sebastian: *rubs his hand up and down Gideon’s thigh, bites his bottom lip and smiles, glancing at Gideon* So, I helped Braden with the composite sketch for his stalker a long time ago. And when I first got to his place that night, Zavier answered the door. I, um, well… I was kind of in awe of him, really. I think my mouth dropped open.
Gideon: *growls like a bear*
Sebastian: *snickers* Well, I mean, I DID confuse the two of you the first time I met you, Sir. You guys look like you could be twins at first glance. So anyway, that night, I told him to take his clothes off.
Gideon: The fuck?! *growls again* I’m gonna to kill my brother. What the hell, boy?!
Sebastian: *doubles over laughing* Your face, Sir. OMG! *can’t stop laughing*
Gideon: *leans in and whispers* Your ass is gonna be red for days. The punishment fits the crime, boy.
Sebastian: *squirms in his seat, clears throat* Yes, Sir. *glances up at Bec, grins and winks* So, anyway, we hit it off that night, over our mutual attraction to all things McCade.
Gideon: *pinches the bridge of his nose and shakes his head* Jesus, Bastian.
Sebastian: *snickers* Hey, I asked Braden if Zavier had brothers. It was meant to be, Sir.
Gideon: *grunts* You’re not getting out of this punishment, boy.
Sebastian: Promises, promises. *clears throat again* Sorry, Bec. Um, so anyway, we kind of hit it off but I didn’t see him again until I did Nana’s composite sketch. But it was like we’d been friends for years. It’s always felt completely natural for us to be very close. There’s something just so warm and welcoming about Braden. Hard not to love him. We’re alike in so many ways and I’m so grateful for his friendship.

Bec- (looks from Sebastion to Gideon and back again) This interview is so much fun, I don't ever want it to end! Yes, Braden does seem like he would be a wonderful friend to have..as do Zoe, and you! :)

3.      Gideon: You have a close family, do you think that has impacted the way you interact in the BSDM world?

Gideon:  Hmm, yeah, I definitely think it shapes my behavior in that respect. I haven’t thought of it that way, but I can’t deny it. My family is military at its core. Even those in the family that weren’t in the military themselves, grew up with it as part of their every day. My father was in the military, his father as well. My mom’s dad was too, and her mom was an army nurse. From an early age, we were taught to protect those that needed protection, to respect others, to follow rules, to follow through, to be dependable. My family is also loyal and loving and I grew up in a household where my father was involved in every aspect of our lives, even if he was overseas, he would make regular contact. So, I grew up having parents that really showed me what was right and wrong. I think all of that can be tied into my interactions within the BDSM community. Being a Dominant was completely natural for me. The most important thing in my world is my boy. Everything I do is for him. A huge part of that is protection, but there’s also respect, loyalty, and love. It all ties in. It was like that with past submissives for me as well. I was never in love with any of them, until Bastian, but for all of my submissives, respecting limits, protection, following the contract, etc. It’s ingrained. Owning my club and protecting the subs there, ensuring I am providing an atmosphere of mutual respect. It’s all part of it, for me.

Bec- Thank you, I love this answer and would expect nothing less! :)

4.      This one you both can answer: Do you plan to have any more pets :) (had to ask that one, lol)
Gideon: *snorts, shakes his head and rubs his face with his free hand*
Sebastian: *pulls back from Gideon, an incredulous look on his face* What?
Gideon: What do you mean, what? Tell her.
Sebastian: Tell her what?
Gideon: *raises a brow and stares his boy down*
Sebastian: *huffs* We’re not gonna get any. We can’t. Not where we live. We’d have to own land.
Gideon: *raises brow*
Sebastian: *crosses arms over his chest* I love pygmy goats. But we can’t own them. They need the outdoors and special care and all that. But they’re so cute!
Gideon: *clears throat* Don’t stop there.
Sebastian: *huffs again* I love turtles of all kinds. I want a turtle aquarium. I might put one in the studio, I dunno if Slap and Tickle would mess with it at home.
Gideon: *coughs* I thought you were gonna tell her about your love of hedgehogs.
Sebastian: *gasps* Hedgehogs! They’re so cute! *grumbles* But they take a lot of time and attention and we’re too busy for that.
Gideon: *raises a brow at Bec* Check back with us in a year or so.

Bec- Haha, something told me I would get an answer like this, but the goats were a surprise! :P

5.      Sebastian: What is the hardest part about trusting a DOM to take care of your needs?
Sebastian: *turns towards Gideon and glances back at Bec* *hitches his thumb at his Dom* He’s proven himself from day one. From the moment I met him, what he did to help me the night before and from that moment on, I felt at ease with him. I was more nervous that I wasn’t nervous about him. There’s a low-level hum I feel when I’m around him. It’s magnetic. I don’t know how else to describe my reaction to him but I felt at ease with him immediately. Before we even signed the contract, he was all about my needs. But in general, the hardest part for me, before Sir, was opening myself up enough to allow them to know what I wanted, what I needed. Communication is key and if you’re guarded, like I was, you can’t expect a Dom to read your mind and just know. It doesn’t work like that. You have to communicate your wants and needs and if that’s a hard thing for you to do, it will be hard to make the kind of connection you want, to get your needs met.

Bec- Yeah I guess if the connection wasn't there in a D/S relationship then trust might be a factor too. Great answer! 

Thanks you guys, this has been so much fun, I can't wait for people to read your story and connect with it like I did!

THE AWESOME COVER:





(Cover design by John Kicksee, Kix By Design)

AMAZING RIGHT?? I LOVE THIS COVER! NOW FOR THE BLURB! 


“When you boys fall in love, fall in love with his smile—because his smile will never age or change—and his eyes because in his eyes, you will always see the truth.” That advice launches two young men on the journey to adulthood.
Told in 139 “vignettes,” each dedicated to a single event, this is the story of four young men who meet in college, and follows them for more than two decades as they navigate the landscape of modern gay life.
Often playful and imaginative, but firmly grounded in the reality of gay men living in a perplexing, often hostile world, In His Eyes takes us on a journey with these men as they mature and fall in love, and struggle to maintain relationships among petty disappointments and broken dreams, while navigating the rough terrain of acceptance both internal and external.

As they break apart and come together, wound and heal, we are left to ask ourselves: does love ever really die, or is it just reborn in another time and place?
I KNOW, I KNOW, YOU GOTTA KNOW MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK! WELL YOU GUYS ARE IN LUCK, LOOK BELOW!

30. Tuesday’s Child

Skye had been watching the redhead since he’d entered the cafeteria and gotten in line. Short and muscular, he was stur
dily built. There was a hint of baby fat in the slight puffiness of his face and the thickness at his waist, and a vestigial innocence lingered about his eyes and mouth. There was something sexy about him. Masculinity wafted off him like perfume; its heady scent caught Skye’s balls in the vice grip of desire.
When he finally got to Skye’s station, Skye smiled at him brightly. The redhead scowled in return.
“C’mon, smile,” Skye said, “or I won’t give you any mashed potatoes.”
The redhead’s face tightened. “Nothing to smile about.”
“You were born on a Wednesday, weren’t you?”
“Excuse me?” he spluttered, unnerved by the non sequitur.
“Wednesday’s child is full of woe.”
Stung, he shot back, “And you? I suppose you were born on the Sabbath day being all bonny and blithe.”
“And gay?” Skye chirped, cocking his head to one side. “Alas, no. I was born on a Tuesday. Tuesday’s child is full of grace.”
The redhead grunted.
“I’m Skye, by the way,” Skye offered as the redhead slid his tray away.
“Reid,” he replied grudgingly, wanting only to get away.
“OK, Reid. I hope your day gets better.”
Reid turned around, astonished.
“OK,” Skye continued, waving, “y’all come back and see us again, y’hear?”
Now, Reid laughed and, shaking his head, walked away.

31. Brussels Sprouts
Reid stood in Skye’s line. This time, he looked more cheerful, and took his time, greeting Skye by name and asking about each dish on display. Reid made a show of indecision.
“How about the Brussels sprouts?” Skye suggested.
Reid made a face. “I hate vegetables.”
“Me, too,” Skye confessed gleefully. “But these have a balsamic glaze and bacon. I love bacon. I would sell my mother into slavery for bacon.”
Reid laughed. “You’re a funny guy.”
“I’m much more amusing without a hair net,” Skye offered.
“I bet.”
“Give me your hand,” Skye said, pulling a pen from behind his ear. Reid gave him his palm. Skye wrote his phone number on it. Then he pulled a dime out of his pocket and laid it on top of his number. “Call me. Anytime.”
Reid closed his palm.
“Give me your other hand.” This time, Skye wrote the name of his dorm and his room number on Reid’s palm. “Or,” he said, “you can just come up and see me.”
Reid blushed and nodded, then, noticing the impatient line forming behind him, said, “I’d like the Brussels sprouts, please.”
Skye
Perhaps I was lonely, as if having found and lost a friend I was worse off than never having had one, and missing Micah terribly. Perhaps because I was finally ready for a boyfriend; perhaps because I’d dreamed of him for so long, I recognized him as soon as he walked in the door. Whatever the reason, on seeing Reid, I became someone else, acting more boldly than I ever had.

HEY GUYS! AS 'PROMISED' :) I AM BACK TODAY WITH MY BLOG TOUR STOP AND REVIEW OF PROMISES 3: THE BOUNTY HUNTER SERIES BY A.E. VIA! LOOK BELOW FOR BOOK INFO AND LINKS, A TEASER, EXCERPT AND MORE INCLUDING MY REVIEW!

Synopsis
A bounty hunter’s partners to lovers’ story.
The hunt is on… and he’s the prey.

Bradford (Ford) King was sure he had the rest of his life mapped out. Though he was no longer a SEAL Lieutenant, his brother was home safe and he had a job that still allowed him to satisfy his hunger for hunting bad guys. Life was simple, no distractions or complications – at age forty-six – that’s all Ford wanted. What he didn’t want was his work partner, sniper/watchman, Dana, giving him s**t all the time. 

Dana Cadby had grown up labeled a roughneck from the wrong side of the tracks. He’d fought, scrounged, and survived despite a father that constantly told him he couldn’t. Dana pulled himself up by his own boot straps and made a name for himself in the marksman community. He’d been Duke’s bounty watchman for five years. It was his job to ensure their safety, watch their backs. At thirty-three, he was trusted, well respected by his peers, his bosses, his friends… so why couldn’t he earn the same respect from his partner? 

Dana knew he was bisexual before he graduated high school. He also knew he was attracted to the huge, 6’3”, SEAL from the moment he and his brother came to join their team. It wasn’t easy for him to tamp down his immediate reaction to Ford’s thick muscles, full beard, and dark eyes. Still, Dana exhibited nothing but professionalism towards him, not wanting to make his ‘straight’ partner uncomfortable. 

After Dana took back his ex-girlfriend, he’d noticed an intensification in Ford’s bad attitude. One that turned aggressive and downright antagonistic, and Dana was damned if he’d just lay down and take it. He was gonna make that man respect him if it was the last thing he did. 

When Duke sends Dana and Ford out to track down their most dangerous bounty yet, they both embrace the fact that they make one hell of a team… but they fight tooth and nail against the powerful intimacy brewing between them. 
Beware: When Ford and Dana connect, no fugitive can hide from the hunter and his watchman.

This story is a part of a series but can stand alone. It does not end on a cliffhanger and has a HEA. 
Disclaimer: This book is about MM romance, albeit there is a very brief MF scene.

MY REVIEW:


BOY DOES THIS APPLY TO THIS BOOK! HERE IS WHAT I THOUGHT ABOUT FORD AND DANA'S STORY!

I recently read the whole Promises series to date and I love each and every one, but Ford and Dana have a place in my heart it would be hard to fill!

Ford is a rough and tough 46 year old Bounty Hunter who has been alone so long he feels like he will never settle down, never mind that the one person he would love to settle down with is very close to him! Will Ford realize that he needs to act on his attraction? Even if that person already has someone?

Dana is dancing around his attraction to Ford, even as he is in a less than fulfilling relationship. When he suspects Ford feels the same will he give in to desire or continue to live a lie?

Can Ford and Dana get it together enough to realize how right they are for each other, or will danger present itself first?

Man you guys gotta read this story, and believe me, you will want the next book right away, I know I do!!!

Excerpt
Ford
Ford walked into the busy restaurant with his brother close to him, just a half step behind, like always. Both of them ignored the heads that turned when they moved towards the hostess stand. It wasn’t uncommon for people to stare. They weren’t drop dead gorgeous, they were just huge. At first glance they could be mistaken for twins, but Ford was two years older than Brian. Both of them stood at six three and a half, with thick upper bodies and solid thighs to match. Courtesy of twenty-two years in the military. Ford would probably still be leading his SEAL team if he hadn’t been court-martialed and dishonorably discharged five years ago.
“How many in your party tonight?” The wide-eyed hostess asked when Ford approached. He watched her take in his form before responding.
“Just two,” Ford answered.
“Do you mind the bar area? We have a high top ready now.” She smiled.
Ford looked back at Brian, who gave a curt nod.
“That’s fine,” Ford answered.
She scribbled a couple marks on the dry erase board on her podium and picked up two menus before politely asking them to follow her.

His heavy motorcycle boots were loud on the hardwood floor. The thick silver link chain that hung from his belt loop wasn’t attached to his wallet, but to the gold bounty hunter’s badge in his back pocket. A few men sitting at the bar gave them the side eye as if they needed to watch their backs, but he and Brian weren’t the bad guys… they only looked like it. They missed nothing as they took their seats and waited for the hostess to place their menus in front of them. Ford was already scanning the patrons, looking for anything out of the ordinary, while Brian made sure all entries and exits were clear. They weren’t paranoid, it was just years of conditioning and training which had made vigilance an ingrained habit.
