Hero by Erica Chilson

The long-anticipated novel in the Mistress & Master of Restraint series. The sole reason eleven novels were taken off-sale, only to endure a four-year journey to rewrite the entire series from scratch, creating a solid foundation to support the 1000-page tome.

In a city filled with hedonists, they need a Hero – Dominion, New York needs two.

Katya Waters and Caleb Green learn two facts: Not all heroes wear capes, and evil lurks within your nearest and dearest.

Caleb Green returns to Dominion after seventeen years in the military, only to realize he was safer in a warzone than in his hometown. All he’s ever wanted was to settle down with the fiery redhead from his vision, only to discover she’s not only already married to his childhood friend, but in serious danger from all directions. Taking on the role of protector, Caleb tries to keep the nexus safe from the storm itself.

Katya Waters wasn’t raised in Dominion, but soon she discovers her ties run deeper than those who saw her as an interloper. Enemies are hidden beneath the guise of friend and family, while frenemies turn into the strongest allies. Discarded and broken, Katya tries to reform herself into the person she was always destined to become. The editor finds it hilariously ironic how she ends up starring in a real-life version of The Bodyguard, when everyone in Dominion felt she wasn’t important enough to treat with dignity or respect.

After waiting five years, readers demand answers, and Erica Chilson delivers more than they could possibly imagine.

Hero is book 13 in the Mistress & Master of Restraint series and is NOT a standalone read.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Four days after finishing this chunky masterpiece, I am still suffering from a book hangover. Anything else I read just seems like the puffiest nonsense, and just pales into nothingness... you have been warned!

This is the thirteenth book in the series, and Chilson is not wrong when she promises that this will deliver a lot of the answers which have been swirling around the devoted readers' heads. Actually, it answered so much more than that – and it also fundamentally changed my view of... (Now I can't tell you that, can I?) You do absolutely have to read more of the series to get any sense of why this is such a key part of the whole – but if I think about it, if you have never read one, this would be a total brain explosion of the highest order! I found it more cerebral than some of the earlier books, really giving you the insight behind the actions, the rationale for some of the wildest behaviour, and the key to some of the characters. I loved it, every single word.

It is undoubtedly a book which has both layers and levels; and there is a drama playing out within a saga reveal, alongside a heart-warming romance. We enjoy seeing all our favourite players in the game, and uncover more of the good and the bad of Dominion. I absolutely loved finally getting the right measure of Katya, and Caleb was a complete revelation, his absence at war giving him a fresh perspective on the tribe to which he returns. I will not say more, as you need the story to play out and affect your preconceptions, not my view of the situation. I have no fear that you will be amazed, amused, angry, delighted, and most definitely entertained.

Just one piece of advice – if you pick this up on release, then may I respectfully suggest that you actually start reading it on Dec 26th, rather than have all those guests to have to hide from on Christmas day itself. If you have the luxury of being alone, then this will keep you entertained for the whole of the holiday season.

Thank you, Erica Chilson, for another mind-bending delight.

Erica Chilson does not write in the 3rd person, wanting her readers to be her characters. Therefore, writing a bio about herself, is uncomfortable in the extreme.

Born, raised, and here to stay, the Wicked Writer is a stump-jumper, a ridge-runner. Hailing from North Central Pennsylvania, directly on the New York State border; she loves the changes in seasons, the humid air, all the mountainous forest, and the gloomy atmosphere.

Introverted, but not socially awkward, Erica prides herself on thinking first and filtering her speech. There are days she doesn’t speak at all. If it wasn’t for the fact that she lives with her parents, giving her a sense of reality, she would be a hermit, where the delivery man finds her months after expiration.

Reading was an escape, a way to leave a not-so pleasant reality behind. Reading lent Erica the courage she gathered from the characters between the pages to long for a different life. Writing was an instrument of change, evolving Erica into the woman she is today- a better, more mature, more at peace thinker.

Erica has a wicked mind, one she pours out into her creations. Her filter doesn’t allow all of it to erupt, much to her relief. Sarcastic, with a very dark, perverse sense of humor, Erica puts a bit of herself into every character she writes.

See You in Valhalla by MariaLisa deMora Release Blitz

This is Angelo Dobbs’ worst nightmare. A good man lies dead, and with their president and founding member gone, the leadership position within the Borderline Freaks MC falls to him.

It’s not that he can’t manage the easy task of leading a group of good men; he would just have preferred to stay a little farther out of the spotlight. But, when his brothers issue the call, he answers.

Carly Gibson, daughter of his dead friend, is an unexpected—but not unwelcome—complication for his new role. She’s the most intriguing woman he’s ever met, capable and filled with a strength of character. He finds himself instinctively drawn to her. Could he have found the woman meant to complete him, finally?

Over the past couple of years Dobbs—Neptune to the men of the BFMC—has watched as his closest friends found their soulmates. Now, their women are an integral part of the club, and when they and Carly are threatened, Neptune will do anything to ensure their safety—and just maybe, his future.

Fourth and final book in the Borderline Freaks MC series.

This is the last book in the series and I would read the previous books before this one so that you understand what is happening and the dynamic between everyone involved.

Neptune doesn't want to be in charge, but with their president murdered, he steps in to the leadership role. He loves his brothers and would do anything for them. Everyone wants to know what happened and he'll do what he has to in order to bring the person or people to justice.

Carly has an amazing relationship with her dad. But when tragedy strikes, she goes back to him. What she doesn't expect is to be welcomed in and to find her kindred spirit. Carly's life was protected by her dad. He rarely spoke about her and even his brothers didn't know much about her. But with her help and her support, Neptune and she will avenge her dad.

Neither Carly or Neptune were looking for love, but they found it in each other. This story was so sweet and just what was necessary to wrap up all of the loose strings from the previous books.

I can often be seen dancing through the house in the early mornings. But I really, REALLY love live music. My favorite thing with music is seeing bands in small, dive bars [read: small, intimate venues]. If said bar [venue] has a good selection of premium tequila, then that’s a plus!”

We Still Live by Sara Dobie Bauer Blog Tour

Running from a scandal that ruined his life, Isaac Twain accepts a teaching position at Hambden University where, three months prior, Professor John Conlon stopped a campus nightmare by stepping in front of an active shooter.

When John and Isaac become faculty advisors for the school's literary magazine, their professional relationship evolves. Despite the strict code of conduct forbidding faculty fraternization, they delve into a secret affair—until Simon arrives.

Isaac's violent ex threatens not only their careers, but also John's life. His PTSD triggered, John must come to terms with that bloody day on College Green while Isaac must accept the heartbreak his secrets have wrought.

***We Still Live is a standalone M/M friends-to-lovers romance featuring detailed adult content, graphic violence, hurt/comfort, and mental illness.***

Close as they were to the foyer, Isaac was the first to notice the front door opening. A student walked inside. The kid dragged a heavy-looking suitcase behind him. Dressed as he was in a slim-fitting button-down, Isaac immediately assumed preppy, although that assumption altered and changed when taking into account the tight black jeans, Converse sneakers, and shaggy hair the color of caramel and chocolate—a mass of waves and curls that fell down the back of his neck but not quite to his shoulders.

The kid pushed his hair out of the way and looked up, eyes finding Isaac and flashing a moment of panicked nonrecognition before seeing Tommy.

“Um.” Isaac pointed toward the new arrival.

Tommy turned and shouted, “John! My man!”

Not a student, then.

Tommy wrapped John in a hug that actually lifted his feet off the ground. Isaac imagined it wouldn’t be difficult. The new guy might have been average height, but he was gangly, skin and bones.

Tommy ruffled his hair. “Have you lost weight?”

John grumbled and scratched his face with his middle finger. “What are you freeloaders doing in my house?” His voice was surprisingly resonant for someone Isaac considered “pretty.” At John’s pronouncement, crows of approval rang from every direction.

“Come meet Isaac,” Tommy said.

John wiped his palms on his jeans before reaching out to shake, and Isaac’s large hand dwarfed his.

“Isaac Twain is the newest addition to our special corner of Hambden hell. Isaac, this is John Conlon.”

John brushed more hair out of his face. “Nice to—”

“John Conlon?”

John and Tommy froze.

Isaac jerked his thumb over his shoulder. “The books on the shelf. Those are yours?”

John’s face, immobile in what looked like dread a moment before, melted into relief, tinged with a bit of blush. “Oh, yeah. You’ve read?”

“No, but I should. You’ve published a lot of books. You must be good.”

John’s nose wrinkled, and he looked away.

Tommy shook him by the shoulders. “John is an amazing writer. He had a story published in The New Yorker when he was, like, five. Are you working on anything right now?”

John glanced at the bookshelf. “Not lately.”

“You need a drink,” Tommy said.

John’s eyes widened on a big breath. “God, yes, I do.”

“Nice to meet you,” Isaac said, but John just nodded quickly, smile thin, before allowing himself to be herded farther into the house toward the sound of quiet laughter and clinking bottles.

Isaac felt it then—an outsider’s emptiness. He became a nervous-looking coat rack in the corner, a terrified tree waiting for the ax. As the party doubled in auditory volume, he bemoaned his spilled wine. Was it okay for him to leave? It wasn’t like he was supposed to make a speech. He was only there because he figured it was the easiest way to meet everyone before the first official faculty meeting, but he’d been standing around too long. He wanted to run.

Out of curiosity, he reopened John’s book from earlier and read the front flap. It was a coming-of-age story about a gay kid in the Midwest. He flipped to the back, and a picture of John stared back at him. He’d assumed the guy was tired when they first met, but no; apparently, John had perpetual bedroom eyes, and his hair was always an artful mess. He skimmed… creative writing professor at Hambden University… gay rights activist… Converse-wearer and “old-people music” enthusiast.

All arrows pointed to John’s probable sexual preference for men. A spark of interest flickered but quickly went out. True, John Conlon was what most people would consider beautiful, but he wasn’t Isaac’s type. John was the kind of man butch guys fought over in gay clubs, but he was too small for Isaac, too fragile-looking, girly. After all he’d been through, the last thing Isaac wanted was someone feminine.

A thin figure ducked into the library and literally hid against the doorframe. He took a long drink of something brown and leaned his head back. “It’s not good when you want to hide in your own house.”

“Library is the best place for it,” Isaac said.

John kicked away from the wall. “Tommy mentioned you just moved here? I’ve been in Lothos forever, so if you need anything…” He examined Isaac from his brown boat shoes to the top of his blond head. John’s large eyes, dark green, seemed bottomless—drowning pools of intellect and soul—only slightly overshadowed by his thick eyebrows.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Wow, this book is really intense, and so, so good. Bauer is a new author to me, but I shall definitely be reading more, as the writing is excellent and the pace just perfect.

Hambden University is recovering from a mass shooting by a student... the wounds are raw, the whole place is coming to terms with what happened, no one more so than John Conlon, who put himself in the way of danger to save the others. He has been hailed a hero, but has had serious mental health issues ever since. When Isaac Twain, new faculty member, joins the English Dept. he knows none of the history – having joined to escape his own nightmare – yet falls for John almost instantly.

As we get to meet the main protagonists and learn more of the secrets of Hambden and Isaac, the two men get to know each other. It is moving, sexy, illicit, and intense. I really don't want to say more because I am sure that the discoveries need to be fresh as you read them. But I can tell you that this will really make you think about those left behind after such a tragic event, and how they need more than a plaster stuck over the wounds. It reminds us to be kind to others, and ourselves, and how love may strike at inconvenient moments, but should be cherished.

Beautiful book – I am going to have to read it again very soon, because it is really special. This is certainly in my top three books of the year. Stunning!

M/M Second Chance Romance

Greg loves his sister and with her on bed rest due to her pregnancy, Greg is charged with making their mutual friend Cynthia's bachelorette party a hit. There's one problem... Greg knows nothing about throwing a bachelorette party.

When the bakery that his sister wanted is unavailable, Greg seeks out another one that was recommended to him. What he didn't expect was to find an ex-boyfriend.

Rhys is an amazing baker. When he sees Greg again, he immediately apologizes for being young and immature in his relationship with Greg. He also agrees to help Greg pull off an amazing bachelorette party.

These two have sweet, almost young adult chemistry. They make each other laugh and allow themselves to see if they can rekindle their young love relationship. This book was sweet, funny, and had the added bonus of hilarious bachelorette food.

Sweet Anticipation is a quick enjoyable read. Gregory and Rhys had a brief romance in college and get a second change when Gregory hires Rhys to help him prepare the food for a bachelorette party. This is easy-to-read fun story. I really enjoyed the time the men spent in the kitchen. Sweet Anticipation really put me in the mood to do my Christmas baking.

Andrew grew up in western Michigan with a father who loved to tell stories and a mother who loved to read them. Since then he has lived throughout the country and traveled throughout the world. He has a master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and now writes full time.

The Divorce by Matthew J. Metzger

Sometimes life has to fall apart before it can be put back together.

Aled is in a rut. Thirty-three, separated from his wife and avoiding his best friend so he doesn’t have to see how well her love life is going doesn’t make for a good time. So, when a friend suggests a one-night stand to shake off the dust, Aled decides to play along. Maybe some no-strings-attached sex is exactly what he needs to get himself going again and give him the energy to get his life back on track.

But when Aled’s dominant streak meets Gabriel’s flirtatious submission, the one-night stand rapidly spills over into the following days and weeks. And what started out as just sex doesn’t stay that way for long, from the flour fight in Aled’s kitchen to the homemade curry in Gabriel’s flat.

Happiness is right in front of him—but Aled has to stop looking back if he wants to reach it.

Reader advisory: This book includes expressions of homophobia, biphobia and transphobia by multiple characters. There are references to infertility, homelessness, and alcoholism, as well as scenes of rough sex and BDSM.

It has been a year since Aled’s wife left him. His friends drag him out to the pub and at their encouragement, he agrees to meet up with a hot guy they found on Grindr. A night with Gabriel has him feeling better but the reappearance of his wife causes emotional chaos for Aled.

Aled is desperate to hold on to his old life while starting a new relationship with Gabriel, even if it is just a friends-with-benefits deal. His struggles made for good reading. I liked the honesty between Gabriel and Aled as they explore each other, both in and out of bed, and Gabriel’s strength to be who he is and to ask for what he wants. Also, the steamy scenes are hot, varied, and never boring.

The Divorce felt a bit like an entree – small and delicious and left me wanting more. I’m looking forward to reading book two, The Other Man, in the coming weeks.

I actually read this book because I found the blurb for the second book in the series and wanted to read that book and I needed the backstory. I was excited to jump in and get to reading when this hit my e-reader. I will have to say that the book wasn't what I expected. It wasn't bad, it just didn't hold my attention because I didn't feel a connection between Aled and Gabriel. The book is just over 200 pages, but it seemed much longer to me. This book contains a poly relationship, which if written well works for me, this time I am on the fence about it. There is also a trans person in this book; however, if you read some of the reviews, some people don't agree that the character is trans and use other words to describe the character. Just know going in that this book isn't your traditional M/M love story. I do want to read the next book to see what happens next; if there is a third book, I am not sure if I will read it or not yet.

M/F Dark Mafia Romance

This is the second in the series and they do have to be read in order.

Kostas is lost. He is not quite sure how to handle his life right now. It will take everything he has to find his way through and be the ruthless mafia man he is.

Talia is living only to survive. She has grown into her role as a mafia wife and you'll see a side of her that you didn't know existed. Talia makes you proud, and also, at times, cringe with her ability to take on her role so well.

This is a fantastic conclusion to their story. I loved how they still complemented each other and that they saw the best in each other. You'll cheer them on and revel in their successes.

I could not wait for this one to hit my Kindle. I thought the first book was awesome but this one was so much more. It was an intense rollercoaster ride filled with intrigue, suspense, betrayal, violence, passion, and love.

Be prepared to be pulled in from the beginning and hang on for the ride because you will not want to put this story down until the end. I highly recommend reading the first book, you do not want to miss a second of Kostas and Talia's story.

This review is short and sweet because I do not want to spoil it for anyone, you have to read it for yourself. I hope you love it as much as I did.

If you haven't read anything from K. Webster and Nikki Ash before, then you should and start with this duet. They are awesome together and can weave a story like no other.

Stolen Lies is the conclusion of the Truths and Lies duet. Hidden Lies should be read first to completely understand the series.

Stolen Lies picks up on the cliffhanger where Hidden Lies left us. Talia is missing and Kostas is beside himself looking for her. Yes, their relationship started as an arrangement, but it developed into so much more. Will Kostas get his vengeance when he finds out where she's been? Will Talia want to be with him in the end?

Stolen Lies is such a fantastic conclusion. It kept me on the edge of my seat, locked in suspense. There is so much violence, so many secrets, lies, and truths revealed it will have your head spinning. I adored this duet. It was written perfectly. Webster and Ash outdid themselves!!

Wonder With Me by Kristen Proby Blog Tour

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Proby comes a new story in her With Me in Seattle series…

Reed Taylor doesn’t pay much attention to the holidays—until he receives a surprise present. Four-year-old Piper is the daughter he never knew about, and with the death of her mother, is also now the roommate he never expected. He’s determined to make their first Christmas together one she’ll never forget.

Noel Thompson has gotten her share of strange requests in her career as an interior designer. The call to design a beautiful home for Christmas is more like a dream come true. And that was before she met her new employer—sexy and mysterious, he’s everything she ever hoped Santa would bring her.

As Noel showers his home with holiday spirit, Reed showers Piper with love. And the busy life he’s created for himself no longer seems nearly as important as the one Noel is helping him build with his daughter. But if he can’t convince his decorator to stay, this could be the only year he feels the true wonder of the season.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you'll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

M/F Romance Novella

I absolutely love this series. It was fantastic the first time I read it and continues to grow and become even more fabulous.

This is a novella about Noel. She's a very successful workaholic who loves her job. But it's near Christmas and everyone wants their house to look fabulous, so Noel is running around with even less time for everything.

Reed has a great job and he loves his life. When he finds out that he has a daughter, Piper, Reed wants to make sure that he can give her the best first Christmas with him he can. Noel is recommended by several people he knows, so he calls her up and hires her to deck out his house.

This is a feel-good Christmas romance. It has a sweet little girl who loves bunnies, a sexy interior designer, and a hunky financial guru. They all had such a family feel from the beginning. I loved how Piper was able to adjust and fall in love with Reed and Noel. Then, watching Reed and Noel interact was fun and flirty.

If you want a short, fun, feel-good holiday read, this is the story for you. While we don't get to see many characters from the With Me in Seattle series, it still has the same tone as all of the other stories.

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author Kristen Proby is the author of the bestselling With Me in Seattle and Love Under the Big Sky series. She has a passion for a good love story and strong, humorous characters with a strong sense of loyalty and family. Her men are the alpha type; fiercely protective and a bit bossy, and her ladies are fun, strong, and not afraid to stand up for themselves.
