✿ My Review ✿


Uncontrollable is the third book in the Key West series by C.A. Harms and it is Kade and Avery's story.

Avery Nolan is a sweet young woman that cares deeply for her friends and family. She is always trying to help everyone. When she meets Kade, she feels an immediate atraction and soon they become friends, although she wants more.
Kade Thomas is a man that lives in a dark place because he blames himself for his high school girlfriend death. When he meets Avery, he feels something he hasn't felt for years, but decides to be only a friend to Avery because he believes she deserves more than he can give her.
When they find that someone from Avery's life is connected to the death of Kade's girlfriend, Kade goes back to his drinking ways and one night between Avery and Kade changes their relationship, driving Avery away.
But something unexpected happens and Kade has to decide if he wants to continue to live with his past demons or to fight them. Will Avery give him a second chance?




Uncontrollable is an awesome book with an amazing and captivating story. It has lots of drama but also laughter and hot scenes. The story hooked me from the beginning and I couldn't stop reading.




Avery Nolan is a very strong woman. She is a nurse and a natural caretaker. She loves fiercely and always wants to help people, especially the ones she loves.
Kade Thomas is a troubled man. He lost his girlfriend after they had an argument and blames himself for her death. He falls in ove with Avery but he's afraid of getting attached to someone again. When he finally realizes he can lose the woman he loves, he changes his ways and shows us that he is a very strong alpha male, very possessive and protective.
Loved seeing the gang together. The girls are amazing and I couldn't help but smile when they were together. I really loved Jett's alpha tendencies. He had me laughing.

Again, C.A. Harms wrote and amazing book with a wonderful story and awesome characters. Her writing style is flawless and very easy to read. Can't wait to read Callie and Jude's story!

by
C.A. Harms

✾ Synopsis ✾



Have you ever wished for a moment that you could pretend to live the life of someone else? Escape the harsh reality that your own is anything but perfect?

Quinn had always been forced to put her own needs last. With an absent father and a mother who drowns herself daily in a bottle of Rum, there was no other option.

Jett was the distraction she needed, even if it was just for one night. A void filler, a chance for a freeing moment to allow herself to feel something other than emptiness.

He wasn't what she expected...

Gentle

Her life didn't have room for a man like Jett.

Unpredictable

But now it was too late, there was no turning back.

Desire

Nothing would ever be the same.

✾ Synopsis ✾



Harper Jameson, had built the necessary walls to keep her heart safe.

Never again would she allow herself to become weak and vulnerable.

Confident and full of attitude.

A mask she wore than many fell for...

Except Easton Black.

He was equally confident, cocky and knew what he wanted.

Determined.

Things he wanted rarely escaped his grasp.

He was immune to the facade Harper had created.

She was intriguing.

It was Inevitable and Harper could sense that there was no way out.

Easton Black would no doubt be the man that could change everything.

People aren't always as strong as they appear to be on the outside...

Charlie Foxtrot
A Mockingbird Place Novella
by
Kris Cook

Genre: M/M Romance

Release Date: September 15, 2015







The man who has been more of a dad to me than my biological father is dead.
He rescued me from the streets six years ago — a runaway teenage boy, escaping a family who thought I was an abomination.
Now what do I do? I have no one.
My life might look great from the outside. I'm in college. I have my own apartment. I have lots of friends.
But I'm dying on the inside.
I feel so alone. Lost. Hopeless.
I'm not the kind of person to wallow in self-pity. I need a distraction.
The guy moving into Unit A may be just what I need to take my mind off of losing my dad.

****

21-year old Oliver Lancaster is attracted to 22-year old Adam Stockton, the former-Marine moving into Unit A. But attraction for the closeted man morphs quickly into something deeper, something meaningful, something that terrifies Oliver. What will happen if Adam learns about the secret from his past?

Warning: contains skinny dipping, two hot men kissing, and sexual situations taking place in a 10-unit Mediterranean complex filled with college-aged hotties.




















"Loved this book! Very touching love story and has me wanting to know more about the residents at Mockingbird Place." ~ The Smut-Brarians

"It is well written, and you can feel the intensity of the words and the emotions of the characters in the book." ~ Bloggin' With M.Brennan

"A very nice read that I totally enjoyed. I will read more by this author especially this series." ~ Inked Rainbow Reads







I stay behind as everyone says their goodbyes to him. I'm not ready to leave.

He hugs Martha and Sarah last. They wave to me, and then walk out.

When Adam shuts the door, I ask him, "How about another beer? There's three left."

"Actually, I'm hungry. Are you?"

"Starving."

He walks into the kitchen and holds up a grocery bag. "You like ramen noodles? I'm not much of a cook and I figured it might be too late to go out by the time I finished. I was right, even with all the help of our wonderful neighbors and you."

This will be our first meal together. "Noodles and beer? Sounds perfect."

Adam laughs. "I even got cupcakes for dessert. Now all we need to do is find a pot in one of these boxes so we can boil the noodles."

A few minutes later, our dinner is ready to eat.

He looks in several boxes. "I found forks but no plates or bowls. Oh, well. I guess we'll have to eat out of the pot. And since my dining room table is loaded with boxes and my new sofa won't be delivered until tomorrow, we'll have to sit on the floor." He walks into the living room, carrying a couple of forks and our pot of noodles.

I plop down in the same place I sat in before everyone else arrived. "It'll be like an indoor picnic."

He laughs, sits down next to me and then scoots even closer. So close my heart skips a beat.

Adam holds the pot out for me. "You take the first bite."

Heat rushes through me as I twirl my fork in the pot. I wonder if he realizes how intimate this feels. Was my first instinct about him right? Is he gay? I'm confused. I'm not about to bring up that subject now, especially remembering how he acted when I mentioned the gay strip club. Right now I must be patient with him. I like Adam. If he isn't gay, I hope we can at least be friends. But if he is... well, that is a different story.

As I taste the noodles, his eyes are fixed on me. "How did I do, Oliver?"

"Delicious." I haven't eaten ramen noodles in a very long time. Malcolm was an excellent cook and taught me everything he knew about the kitchen. We always ate like kings. "It has a flavor I can't quite figure out."

Laughing, Adam places his arm around me. "It's beer. I'm no chef and I don't have any spices except salt and pepper, but I thought if I poured some of my beer in the pot it might make our noodles taste better."

"It does taste great. Good idea."

"Really? You're not just saying that, are you?"

"Yes. Really." I smile at his enthusiasm. I've witnessed a sliver of his dark side when he adamantly stated he wasn't gay. But now, he seems completely relaxed and open. This seems to be another side to his personality. How many sides does he have? Adam is still a mystery to me.

We polish off the entire pot of noodles quickly.

"I guess we were hungry." He finishes his beer and remains next to me. "Ready for dessert?"

I would much rather taste his lips, but for now, I will settle for a cupcake. "I would love dessert."

He jumps to his feet, collecting our two forks and the empty pot, and returns to the kitchen.

Again, I notice his slight limp. I really wish I knew what happened to him. But if I say something it might end the evening, and I don't want it to end. We’ve only had a little time alone together. I want more, but feel if I stay much longer, I will screw things up.

He brings the cupcakes on a napkin. "There's a chocolate and a vanilla. Which one do you want?"

I look into his dark eyes, wondering what it would be like to hold him close. "Chocolate, please."

"That's my favorite, too." He sits down even closer to me than before, the sides of our legs touching with only the fabric of our jeans keeping our skin apart.

My heart begins to race. "How about we cut the cupcakes in two, Adam, and split them? That way we both get a taste of our favorite."

He laughs in such a way I can't help but smile. It's hearty and warm. "Oliver, you're a genius."

He takes a bite of his chocolate slice and closes his eyes. "Mmm."

I can't help but stare at the drop of icing that is on his thick lips. When his tongue appears and sweeps it into his mouth, I think I'm going to pass out. He is the hottest guy I've ever met. I need to get control of myself or my excitement will get the better of me.

Adam's eyes pop open. "What are you waiting for? It's delicious."

I take a bite of mine. In the sexiest voice I can muster, I say, "It is so delicious — sweet, moist, and creamy."

"You should be the bakery's spokesperson. Have you ever thought about doing commercials?"

So much for trying to sound sexy, but I'm not ready to give up. Not yet. "No, I never have."

"You should consider it. You've got a great voice."

"Thanks. This has been a blast, Adam."

"A blast?" He grins again. "I'm glad but I feel like I've taken advantage of you. This has been a lot of work."

Please take advantage of me. "Next time I want to cook dinner for you."

"That would be great. I'll bring a six-pack or a bottle of wine. But don't think you have to top my meal." He grins, holding up his remaining cupcake half. "This is five-star dining at its best."

"Yes, it is. And the company can't be beat." Despite how much I want to stay, I wrap up the remainder of my dessert in the napkin. "It's late. I better go."

A flash of disappointment appears on his face and then quickly vanishes. He gets up on his feet. "Thanks, buddy. Without your help and all the other neighbors pitching in, I wouldn't have been able to get the truck unloaded." He holds out his hand in the universal gesture of friendship.

Is this all we are ever going to be? Just friends?

I can't resist testing the water, just a little. "Come on, buddy. We've shared noodles. We're friends who deserve a hug." I pull him in and he doesn't resist.

It still doesn't confirm my suspicions about him, but it does give me a reason to hope.







Though starting in straight erotic romance, Kris's total focus now is on gay romance. When asked why recently, his answer was "My muse finally came out of the closet. Isn't it about time? I’ve been out since I was twenty-five." A voracious reader, Kris loves many genres of fiction, but this writer's favorite books are romances that are edgy, sexy, with rich characters and unique challenges. Kris' influences include Anne Rice, JR Ward, Lexi Blake and Shayla Black. Last year, Kris married the love of his life Stephen.

✿ Excerpt ✿


I watch as he slowly retreats back to her room and, wait... what's that? I tilt my head slightly while holding on for dear life to the thin sheets currently protecting me. Has he got her thong around his neck? He bloody has as well. What the hell have I got myself into with this one? I knew she was wild, but having strangers coming back, who openly stalk sleeping women is pushing it way too far. I need to make it clear to her that this isn't okay. Not one bit.

"I think I'm gonna take this as a souvenir, sugar." He says while pulling on the thin string of fabric, before pinging it off his bare flesh. I really hope that's a clean pair and not the ones she had on last night. I feel absolutely violated and it's not even my underwear around his neck.

"Be my guest. Plenty more where that came from big boy."
