The Fireman's Pole by Sue Brown


The flames of passion rise for the lord of the manor.

It’s springtime in Calminster village, but things are already heating up. Sexy firefighter Dale Maloney is new to the local station. When Dale backs the company fire engine into the village maypole, he attracts the ire—and attention—of Benedict Raleigh, the Baron Calminster.

Soon after meeting Dale, Ben breaks off his relationship with his girlfriend, and the sparks between Ben and Dale are quickly fanned into flames.

Unfortunately the passion between the two men isn’t the only blaze in the village. An arsonist’s crimes are escalating, and it’s up to Dale and his crew to stop them. Meanwhile, as they investigate, an unscrupulous business partner attempts to coerce Ben into marrying his daughter. The May Day parade is around the corner, but they have plenty of fires to put out before Ben can finally slide down the fireman’s pole.

Dale and Benedict are an odd couple. You have a fireman and a baron. You have a guy who seems to get along with everyone and then someone who has power over everyone. One who is out of the closet and one who hides himself.

While I did enjoy the mystery – who done it – part of the story, I found that the romance fell a little short. Considering what I'm used to reading from Ms. Brown, I just thought that this was not as good as what I've come to expect.

It was a quick read, but I also was dissatisfied with the ending and resolution for a lot of the characters in the story. Maybe it's a set up for a second book, but I just wanted more.

3.5 stars

It was the innuendo in the title that caught my attention – I didn’t bother with the blurb. And the story does live up to its title. This is a light and easy romance about a wealthy minor peer and the new fireman at his village fire house.

When he isn’t damaging the village maypole, Dale and his fellow firefighters are trying to identify the arsonist causing problems in Calminster. Ben Raleigh, Baron of Calminster, is fighting hard to keep his home and businesses safe from a dastardly competitor. The two don’t necessarily have much in common, but once Ben forgives Dale for the Maypole mishap, the attraction between the two blossoms into something more.

This is a low heat, traditional romance. Ben’s staff and Dale’s coworkers provide colour and Calminster village provides a traditional setting. The arson storyline adds some excitement. But this isn’t an action story – it’s not even Midsomer Murders. This is a slow, sweet romance that gets a little bit steamy at times.

I have no idea what Sue Brown’s nationality is but I feel like she might be an American who has seen one too many episodes of Downton Abbey. Calminster is a little bit too idyllic, titles and addresses don’t quite ring true, the quirky characters are a bit too obsequious around their feudal lord – and honestly – a Georgian house with a dungeon? This definitely isn’t a story for readers who need their stories to feel authentic.



SUE BROWN is owned by her dogs and two children. When she isn’t following their orders, she can be found with her laptop in Starbucks, drinking latte and eating chocolate.

Sue discovered M/M romance at the time she woke up to find two men kissing on her favorite television series. The kissing was hot and tender and Sue wanted to write about these men. She may be late to the party, but she’s made up for it since, writing fan fiction until she was brave enough to venture out into the world of original fiction.

Find Me by Tiffany Snow


As the head of the government’s secret Vigilance spy program, computer guru China Mack already has her hands full when her billionaire boyfriend, Jackson Cooper, asks for one of them in marriage.

Thrown for a loop by the sudden proposal, China’s usually well-ordered life takes another hit when someone tries to assassinate the president. Even that comes with a shocking twist: the primary suspect is none other than her ex-partner, Clark Slattery. With nowhere else to turn, the sexy loner needs China’s help and expertise. Clark has linked the assassination attempt to a failed secret operation undertaken six years ago—and a deadly cover-up that’s putting the leader of the free world in the crosshairs. But the president isn’t the only one in harm’s way.

Now, China is going to have to dig deep for information that’s beyond even her clearance. And what she discovers may have far-reaching consequences for her life and everyone else in it.

China is celebrating her first Valentine's Day with her boyfriend, Jackson, and he goes all out to impress. Unfortunately, their night is interrupted at a crucial moment when they find out the President has been shot and China has to rush off to work. She returns home to find Clarke hiding out at her place after someone tried to kill him. The same someone is also trying to kill Jackson and China. And so begins the hunt to find out who is at the bottom of the murder attempts of China and the two men trying to win her heart.

It must be said that Tiffany Snow is the queen of the love triangle. No one does it better. Usually by this point in a series I've chosen which guy I want the heroine to be with, but in this case I'm torn. I love them both. At one point I was even hoping maybe she could have both, but I guess that is just my fantasy.

There are several twists and turns in Finding Me that I didn't see coming and one I should have seen coming but didn't. I was too distracted by the romance and tension between the characters and the action to notice. That is the sign of a great story.

Find Me is another 5-star book in the Corrupted Hearts series. I loved every twisting, turning, and heart racing minute.

This was a very frustrating story for me. While it did have more of a party theme to it, the short snippets of characters we were able to see left me wanting.

I liked how Bancroft and Ruby banter back and forth and they have some great chemistry. You get to see some jealousy among them, which gives them a feeling of having a lot of passion.

Then you have Amie and Armstrong and their relationship borders on emotional abuse. Armstrong is horrible and I hated him. Not to mention that he still lets his mother run his life. I also wished that Amie was more able to stand up for herself – she essentially just took whatever was dished out.

Finally, you had Lexington. He sounded so confident and sexy, but in the end, he was just an extra character – I think we needed more from him for this story to feel more complete.

I enjoyed the relationships between dynamic and hope there is more to come from these characters, as I felt that a lot went unsaid.


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This novella follows the Shacking Up book – which I have to admit I have not yet read, however I shall be rectifying that very soon! There is enough of an introduction that my lack of knowledge did not matter enough to affect my enjoyment, but I bet I would have got some of the inside jokes better if I had.

This is a very cute, sassy, and comedic little story – with some super hot interludes, which in one case definitely led to a most unfortunate double wardrobe malfunction. At least that is how it is for Bane and Ruby. Things are not so good for Amalie, but I have a feeling that Lex is going to be her salvation in future installments – I certainly hope so.

Making It by Christine d'Abo


Devan knows exactly what he wants from life: a good career, a husband who loves him, and a child to call his own. He’s working at the perfect job, and has found the man of his dreams in Eli. That only leaves one box left to tick. When his friend offers to be a surrogate mother for Devan and Eli, he’s convinced all his dreams have come true.

Eli has been fighting his entire life. Fighting to keep his sick mother safe, fighting his frustration, and fighting daily as an up-and-coming MMA star. The one thing he can’t fight is the feeling that he’s made a terrible mistake agreeing to be a father with Devan. On the worst night of their lives, Eli knows Devan is better off without him, and leaves.

When Eli returns three years later, he comes face-to-face with Devan and a son who might be his. Devan has moved on with his life, but seeing Eli once again reignites forgotten passion. Yet if Eli wants to make it work with Devan, he must decide if he’s ready for the biggest fight of his life.

The Ringside Romance stories can be enjoyed in any order -- jump in wherever you'd like.

Lee’Anne☆☆☆☆
I think my favorite part of this book was that it’s unique while not going so far outside the norm that it’s unrealistic. I’m always a fan of second chance romances and this one isn’t an exception – I really enjoyed it.

Eli and Devan are married shortly after only being together a short time. They’ve been trying to have a child together for quite a while and when their surrogate suffers another miscarriage, Eli uses it as an excuse to leave Devan’s life. Eli is an MMA fighter who is being pushed by his rude as heck manager to stay in the closet, on top of the stress of his mother’s health issues. Now, almost two years later, Eli returns to help his friends promote their local gym and discovers a huge surprise – Devan has an 11-month old son who could possibly be biologically his. The attraction, of course, is still there and Eli knows he still loves Devan, but he has a lot of trust to regain with Devan and it’s not going to be easy.

I loved both of the main characters – Devan is an amazing father and I think it’s great that he didn’t take Eli back right away, Devan really made Eli work to gain his trust back. Even going as far as to let Eli babysit while he went out on dates with other men. The book is definitely enjoyable and can be read as a standalone.


Angie☆☆☆☆
I seriously had déjà vu when I read this book. I felt like I had read this story before. Maybe it was previously published or just so similar to something I have read before? The story was good. Eli and Devan were married, planned to have a baby, and then Eli bolted. Three years later, they are thrown back together. You can tell there is chemistry and you want them to work things out. I do like how independent Devan is, he had a goal and he achieved it. I couldn't believe how blind Eli was about his manager and then when he confronted him, I would have beat him down and he didn't! This was a sweet second chance love story with a little angst in there for good measure.


Sarah☆☆☆
I find it incredibly difficult to engage with a romance when I thoroughly dislike one of the main characters from the start and Eli is unforgivably awful! He runs away from his husband after their surrogate miscarries their child. He runs away from his mother after she has a stroke. Even married, he stays in the closet because he prioritises his MMA career above everything.

When Eli comes back to town, he is followed by all his MMA publicity and hype. He doesn’t seek Devan out for an apology. I wanted Devan to grab his child and run, but he is too nice. And ‘nice’ is just as much a kiss of death in romance as it is in life. Sweet, kind, funny, and good, Devan allows himself to be swept up in Eli’s charisma. Urgh. I know these couples in real life. I want my romance heroes to be strong and brave and honourable.

Things get some better near the end. The role of Eli’s manager in his life should make it easier to forgive Eli but for me, it just confirmed that Eli was willing to sacrifice everything for his MMA career. We do get some flashy displays of commitment and remorse from Eli. They are kinda sweet. But I’m not sure his last minute choices make up for leaving Devan or treating him badly.

Beyond the romance, I enjoyed seeing the gym finally up and running and I liked watching the two previous couples settled and happy. I’m not a fan of babies in books and Devan’s father moments are a little too sweetly domestic for me. I’ve enjoyed this series but this definitely isn’t my favourite book in the series.



Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the third book in the series and rounds off the three friends who trained together as youngsters and bring back to life their gym; either by running it. funding it, or publicising it. They each find their happily ever after along the way – and whilst you could read them in any order, as they are loosely linked, there is a natural order. I would say this is the least connected of the three.

I enjoyed the premise behind the story, and as we got to know Eli better, we could start to understand what was going through his head three years ago, but I am not sure I would be as forgiving as Devan. Definitely a case of "what the heart wants," even if he makes some rules! For all the conflict, in and out of the ring, there was a rather effective, down to earth quality about both the men which was very refreshing. Eli was doing maintenance at his mum's house, Devan was a bit of a messy person about the house. I enjoyed the familiarity which made their time together much more significant, and yet still new and hot, as they relearned each other.

A really good series, which dealt with a good range of issues, with both some super hot guys, and some unexpected twists. Thank you, Ms. d'Abo.


Shannan☆☆☆☆
3.5 Stars

Devan thought he and Eli were on the path to the next big thing in their lives. Eli was perfect for him. All that was missing was the child he couldn't wait to raise with Eli. When the surrogate suffers another miscarriage, it's too much for Eli. The stress he's been carrying around finally gets the best of him and he thinks Devan would be better without him.

The stress Eli carries between his manager that forces him to stay in the closet, his mother's health, and not knowing if having a child with Devan is exactly what he wants is burying him. After almost two years he's coming back to Ringside to help promote a fight. It's possibly the worst or best thing that can happen to him. He knows he'll see Devan but what he isn't expecting is seeing Devan's son.

I really enjoyed this series. The group of friends finding their happily ever afters with some drama and MMA thrown in.

This is the fourth book in the series – and whilst they are definitely linked, you could read this first and enjoy it in its own right (then go back and read the rest!).

This installment gets us situated within the competitive world of singles skating, and the way that a 23-year-old woman is basically passed it already in that world. Tabitha, however, has a mission to retire on a high and repay her family for their dedication to her career. As her routine does not incite passion in her, she fears that her technical skills will not be enough.

I love how much sport there is in this book, and once we get Daniil's story woven in too, it is easy to get completely engaged and want them to do every routine perfectly. The issue of sponsorship, costs, and coaches, as well as the requirements of diet and early nights all contribute to the story. But don't worry, it is most definitely not all early nights!

The relationship between Tabitha and Daniil is intense from the very beginning, and fits the way that they live. Inevitably it is not smooth as the ice they skate on, but then nothing worthwhile ever is...

Dragon's Hoard by M.A. Church


To be loved by a dragon is to be treasured.

A hundred years ago, werewolf Alpha Montgomery took a risk driven by desperation—he borrowed money from the ancient dragon Warwick Ehecatl, putting up the pack lands as collateral. Now the debt is due, and dragons don’t forget—or forgive. Warwick demands Montgomery’s son, Avery, and three businesses as compensation. As an Omega, Avery knows he is basically useless to his pack, so he might as well agree. He soon has second thoughts, though. Warwick is fearsome, and he’s free to do as he likes with Avery.

Warwick knows his race’s reputation, and he even admits some of it is deserved. But he’d rather cut off his tail than let his innocent mate’s light go out. It won’t be easy, but buried deep, there’s something between them worth safeguarding.

Warwick is an ancient dragon shifter who also happens to be a loan shark of sorts for other shifters. Alpha Montgomery needed money and Warwick was the shifter to help him; however, when he can't repay his debt, Warwick makes the alpha a different offer.

Avery is an Omega in the pack, they are to be treasured and treated as if they are made of glass. However, when he is given to Warwick as payment, he proves he is not as weak and everyone assumes.

I loved that Warwick was hard and cold with everyone, but when he was with Avery he was warm and snuggly.

I enjoyed the interactions between Avery and Warwick, they were very different around each other to when they were with other people.

Now a few problems; every time Avery said "oh gods" it made my eye twitch. It was said far too many times. Also, I felt the ending was quite rushed, I would have liked an epilogue to tie things up.

Overall, I enjoyed the book and would read another from this author.



M.A. CHURCH is a true Southern belle who spent many years in the elementary education sector. Now she spends her days lost in fantasy worlds, arguing with hardheaded aliens on far-off planets, herding her numerous shifters, or trying to tempt her country boys away from their fishing poles. It’s a full-time job, but hey, someone’s gotta do it!

When not writing, she’s exploring the latest M/M novel to hit the market, watching her beloved Steelers, or sitting glued to HGTV. That’s if she’s not on the back porch tending to the demanding wildlife around the pond in the backyard. The ducks are very outspoken. She’s married to her high school sweetheart, and they have two children.

Erica☆☆☆
I need to preface this review by stating that I don't believe I was the intended audience for this short story/novella. However, not because I am a size-queen when it comes to page count. I love a well-written novella, probably more than most people, enjoying a full story in so few pages. I believe the writing style isn't to my tastes, needing more depth. As shocking as it is to say, more detail (something those who read my reviews will be floored to see me say).

The blurb doesn't accurately portray the contents of the story. While this is most certainly an erotic short, there is a slight thread of romance, and it's not with the professor. To me, it felt as if the professor was just a blip in a story about a pair of best friends/roommates, waiting for the narrator to grow up.

The blurb also speaks of Cooper's past and a 'close call,' but those events of true substance were just sentences thrown in randomly during dialogue and inner monologue, never truly utilizing them. The 'close call,' I wasn't sure if that was even executed properly, or with accurate research. With both of these 'events,' there was a lot for the author to build on, and it was just left dangling, never more than a paragraph dedicated to it at a time.

As I said above, I'm generally the person who uses my imagination, never needing B and C to get from A to D. But this felt as if it was more along the lines of A to Q, and that is too far of a bridge for me to gap with my imagination alone. This story has a rapid flow, skipping most of the depth, character building, and only detailing erotic scenes. Without the tension, buildup, or emotion, those scenes took on a clinical air for me, especially with the ménage scene, as it felt out of place and was over in so few pages. Just a blip in the short story.

This story wasn't for me, not to my tastes, not my cup of tea, and I don't consider that a mark against the author. We just aren't a good fit. However, if you're reader who wants a quick, naughty romp of a story, not wishing to read anything but spank-bank material, I'd definitely recommend this title to you.



Jon Keys’ earliest memories revolve around books; with the first ones he can recall reading himself being “The Warlord of Mars” and anything with Tarzan. (The local library wasn’t particularly up to date.) But as puberty set in, he started sneaking his mother’s romance magazines and added the world of romance and erotica to his mix of science fiction, fantasy, Native American, westerns and comic books.

A voracious reader for almost half a century, Jon has only recently begun creating his own flights of fiction for the entertainment of others. Born in the Southwest and now living in the Midwest, Jon has worked as a ranch hand, teacher, computer tech, roughneck, designer, retail clerk, welder, artist, and, yes, pool boy; with interests ranging from kayaking and hunting to painting and cooking, he draws from a wide range of life experiences to create written works that draw the reader in and wrap them in a good story.
