Real Hazard by Elle Keaton Release Blitz

Release Blitz. Elle Keaton’s Real Hazard.

They're not looking for love, but it catches them anyway. Can two very different men find common ground and claim a future... together?


Things I love
my kid sister
the no-hope dogs I rehabilitate
my job as an EMT
and maybe my new friend Dutch.

But Dutch isn’t gay and physical attraction isn’t something I feel often. Are these feelings real, or am I just tired of being alone?


This is all Hazel’s fault. Hazel the Hazard.
Hazel made me come to first grade safety day.
Hazel blurted out—loudly—about the beautiful fireman.
Hazel invited the beautiful fireman over for a party.

I swear I’m not gay, but Foster Jennings is the most beautiful man I’ve ever met, outside and in.

Dutch Schumach is the single dad of a precocious daughter. He moved to Piedras wanting a better life for Hazel and himself. Things are shaping up, he’s landed a permanent job at Brooch Resort and Hazel has quit having nightmares that someone is going to steal her away.

Then everything goes sideways, Dutch’s past threatens his future and he doesn’t know where to turn.

Something is wrong, Dutch is pushing him away and won’t tell Foster why.

When Hazel goes missing Dutch can’t hide anymore, he needs his… Foster to help him get Hazel back.

Real Hazard is book four in the West Coast Forensics series and can be read as a standalone, but may be more fully enjoyed if you start with Real Trouble.

Before he could form a reply, a whirlwind in the form of a barely four-foot-tall girl raced from the auditorium onto the stage. Messy dark-blond hair escaped ties someone had wrapped around her uneven braids. Maybe she did her own hair? Foster remembered when Becca had insisted she would brush and braid her hair. There were a couple years of hilarious school pictures tucked in a photo album at home.

“Daddy says I have to apologize for saying my thoughts out loud. He says there are thoughts that sometimes should stay in my head.” She stopped in front of him. Her hands were curled into fists on her hips, and her eyes blazed as if she dared him to agree with her father.

“Hazel,” both Larch and the dad said in tandem.

Hazel turned her glare to the two adults trying to actively oppress her and then back to Foster.

Foster had to bite his lip to keep from laughing. This must be the student who’d called him pretty. “It’s okay. I accept your apology.” He glanced over at the dad. Hazel resembled her father, but where Hazel had a head full of hair, the dad had none. But, Foster thought, the guy was lucky: he had a nicely shaped head, so being bald worked for him.

“You are pretty, though.” Obviously, Hazel was one of those who liked to have the last word. “And I don’t know why I have to apologize for being nice.”



Smiling, Dutch waited patiently for whatever Foster was trying to get out between gasps for oxygen.     “Me… flirting…” he wheezed, flailing his hand around.     That set them both howling again. Dutch’s stomach muscles were working overtime, and he was pretty sure the neighbors were wondering what the hell was going on.



Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

The latest love story to come out of Piedras Island is between Foster, an EMT, and Dutch, a cook. Both men are single dads. Foster has raised his sister, who is shortly off to college, and Dutch is raising his 8-year-old daughter, Hazel. I confess I’m not always a big fan of the single dad genre, mostly because the kids are cutesy and annoying. In this case, Hazel wasn’t too bad. She was strong-willed and forward without being too overbearing. She is also how the men meet.

For me, the best thing about Real Hazard is getting to see the two men go from being strangers, to acquaintances, to friends, then to lovers. I really appreciated their low-angst journey to love and happiness. It was just what I needed to be reading. It was lovely to see the two men help each other out and support each other as they deal with life’s daily struggles and eventually, a very dangerous situation.

I really enjoyed Real Hazard. It is a lovely romance and I think fans of the single dad genre are going to love it.



I have this theory that you’re a tough guy on the outside but a kitten in the bedroom.
