Cover REVEAL Godsend by Sloan Johnson

You can’t choose who you fall in love with. Despite knowing from a young age that he was gay, Scott Murphy couldn’t imagine life without Shelly. He threw away the labels and had eleven amazing years with her, but now, he feels even more lost trying to figure out how to move on after Shelly’s death. After nearly a year of watching Scott fade away, Shelly’s father forces him to start living again.

As much as Chris loathes the idea of attending a bereavement group week after week, it’s one of the only places he can go in this town, other than the bar, to not feel so alone. When there’s nothing to distract him or dull his senses, he spends too much time obsessing over how he should have been able to help his sister. When Scott shows up at his group session, Chris decides that maybe some good can come out of his sister’s death.

There’s no denying that Chris is the first man to catch Scott’s attention in a long time, but how can he move on when just thinking of Shelly sends him to his dark place?

The road to recovery won’t be an easy one, but Chris is determined to help Scott see that life is still worth living. But before Scott can allow himself to admit what he feels for Chris, he knows he has to r
eveal the full truth about Shelly’s death. 


Release date is set for Feb 9th!

Sloan Johnson

Have you read any Sloan Johnson books? I have and they are great, here are a few, a rafflecopter for great prizes, and a sneak peek at what Sloan is working on RIGHT NOW!And in February, I will have a cover reveal for Sloan's book Godsend. You don't want to miss that one!

Blurb for Teach Me:
 Two words stripped Austin Pritchard of the privileged life he’s used to. The moment he uttered the words, “I’m gay,” he realized there is no such thing as unconditional love. Now, he’s gone from traveling the world with his family to living on the streets trying to figure out how he’s going to stay in school.

A chance opportunity changes everything. Austin impresses the foreman and lands a job, but even more, he catches the eye of David Becker, who is determined to teach him that true love doesn’t come with strings.

The only thing David had as a child was love. His family struggled to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads. That has driven him to stay focused on his goals; become a tenured professor at a university and save enough money to build a home of his own. It’s not until he sees an insecure college student working on his new house that he realizes that he hasn’t planned on someone to share his life with. He’s about to learn that everything he’s already accomplished is nothing compared to the task of making Austin see that he is worthy of love.

My review of Teach me: 5 Pandas 

I was in love with the idea of this story from the blurb, and reading it did not disappoint me at all.
We start the story off with Austin on his last day at college, after being disowned by his father for coming out, he is leaving almost everything behind and will be homeless in just a matter of moments. Life on the street is about as bad as he thought it would be, but he makes a few friends that are willing to take him under their wings and show him the ropes, so to speak.
After getting a job offer to do construction, he meets David, a man in his 30's who is living out his dream. David takes a liking to Austin and wants to pursue a relationship with him, but Austin will not make that easy at all.
Will they be able to overcome the age difference and everything else that is thrown in their paths? You have to read Teach Me to find that out!
I like that Austin is pretty similar to young men, I have a 21 year old son, and I can attest to the fact that they are whiny, and insecure under normal circumstances, under these, I think Austin is perfectly likeable! And David has a heart of gold.
I truly enjoyed this book.

 Tony DeLuca has to get to New York, nor’easter be damned. His older sister is getting married and it won’t matter to her if the entire east coast is shut down if it means she’s short a groomsman. She’s the only reason he’s willing to make the trip home to face a father who’s never forgiven him for wasting a perfectly good degree to become a firefighter. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to everything about Tony that his father will never accept.

Dominic Tricoli’s living his dream. He’s spent the past few years working to mesh his business degree and love of the outdoors into a thriving company, providing team building retreats for some of the country’s largest corporations. Unfortunately, there’s a price to pay for happiness, and having someone to come home to at night is the sacrifice Dominic made.

When Dominic overhears Tony’s plight, he’s drawn to help the man get to New York City. Little does Dominic know that one kind gesture will awaken a side of him he’s ignored for far too long. Against his better judgment, he gives in to his desires and Tony’s advances. Just for the night.

When destiny steps in, giving him another chance with the charismatic man who saved his hide, Tony’s willing to do whatever it takes to earn Dominic’s forgiveness and understanding. There may not be forever, but Tony’s determined to enjoy every single minute he’s given with Dominic.

You can’t fight fate. Whatever’s meant to happen, eventually will.

Dance With Destiny BUY LINK 

My Review: 5 Pandas 
 I love the idea of fate sometimes having a hand in our lives, and in this book it had nothing to do with the paranormal.
Dominic is headed to New York for a wedding, but a snow storm has stopped flights, so he rents a car and decides to drive so he isn't late. As he is walking he hears a man, Tony, practically begging for a flight to New York, and he decides to take a chance and offer him a ride since he already had a car rented.
Tony cannot be late for his sisters wedding in New York so when Dom offers him a ride he accepts. On the way they pick up two more passengers, and that eases Tony's mind a little, even though he is attracted to Dom, he would prefer not to be alone with a man he just met driving on the highway.
Once they reach New York and go their own ways both wish they had not wasted a chance. And then fate steps in two days later, they are both there for the same wedding. For Tony, it is hard, because he is only openly gay with his sister and her soon to be husband. Dom is out and doesn't want to have to hide anymore.
Sloan does a great job of telling their story and making you feel the pain and happiness that these two go through. I laughed, and cried(ugly cried), swooned and blushed. Dance with Destiny is a great tale that shows that you cannot escape your fate.

What is in the works from Sloan? 

What’s in the Works from Sloan…

“The best laid plans of mice and men often go awry…”

This has become a bit of a mantra for me over the course of the past year. I had my books planned out, a release schedule set, made announcements, and then my characters laughed at me. I’ve often joked that I write whatever story the characters tell me I have to write, but it’s really not a joke. When I sit down, I have to feel the characters and hear what they’re telling me.
I spent a good part of 2014 trying to beat certain characters into submission. I felt as though I had to write them because I’d already introduced them to my readers. The problem was that my heart wasn’t in it. I didn’t let that deter me, and kept trying to force stories. And then, I hit a point where I felt like I couldn’t write anything.
It wasn’t until I let go of the control that a wonderful thing happened. The characters started talking again! They weren’t the ones I wanted to hear from, but I was able to write. That also led to an unexpected but wonderful genre change for me. You see, I started writing as an m/f contemporary romance author who occasionally dabbled into the psychological and emotional sides of BDSM, and suddenly the only characters speaking to me were gay men. I fought with them for a long time, because I was scared to make the change.
Soon, my third m/m romance will be released, and I can’t explain how much happier I am! The biggest reason for this isn’t that I’m listening to what the voices tell me, it’s because I feel like I’m doing something with my life.
As part of a trilogy I will begin releasing later this year, I have spent time researching the immigration process for LGBT Russians seeking asylum in the United States. The more I learned, the more helpless I felt, because I was learning about what these men and women face every day. I mentioned this to a friend who is currently in the process of filing for asylum in hopes that he’d have a suggestion for how I could do something more. I was floored when he told me that I’m already doing something great, simply by writing their stories.
Soon after releasing my first books, I adopted the motto “Real Life. Real Love.” because those are the stories I enjoy writing. There are times I wonder if I would be better off sitting down to craft elaborate tales with fantasy characters, but that’s not me. I love watching the news and letting painful, hard stories lead me to a character who needs to find his happily ever after. It may not lead to the hottest stories on the market, but my hope is that I will continue to grow and find a way to bring awareness to causes close to my heart while captivating the readers.

Home Free is the first book in the Shelter From the Storm trilogy. Here’s a snippet of Sasha’s story:

“I am sorry. I did not mean to cause problem in your bar,” Sasha apologized. Coop stared down at him with his arms crossed tightly over his broad chest. “I will leave now.”
“I told you to follow me. We’re gonna have a chat.” The hair on the back of Sasha’s neck stood on end, warning him that this wasn’t going to be a pleasant conversation. Not wanting to create more problems than he already had, Sasha reached down for his bag and followed Coop back to the office. “Sit.”
Sasha stared at the floor, curling his fingers around the arms of the chair as he waited for whatever was about to happen. It was stupid to follow this man back here, where there were no witnesses, when he was obviously upset. Sasha’s mind raced with thoughts of being beaten and left to die in the alley behind the bar. No one would miss him. If he didn’t show up at the church tomorrow, his new friends would assume he had decided against going back. Jesse wouldn’t be home until Thursday, and by then it’d be too late. He’d be nothing more than a nameless gay man washed from the Earth. Back home, he knew they’d celebrate his death, feeling it was what he had coming to him.
Coop sat down behind the desk and cleared his throat. Sasha steeled himself and looked up into the steely blue eyes filled with anger. “Is it true you accepted money for sexual favors in this bar last night?”
Sasha didn’t want to admit to it, but he knew lying would only bring more problems. If it came down to believing one of them, this man would surely side with the person he knew. “Yes,” Sasha whispered.
“And do you know that’s illegal?” Coop asked, leaning forward.
“Yes,” Sasha admitted, chewing the inside of his lip. If the cops were called, Sasha would be sent home and there would be no better life for him. Now, he wished the man would beat him to death, because even that would be better than being deported.
“Fuck, kid. What were you thinking?” Coop growled. Sasha felt a whoosh of air as Coop threw his baseball cap across the room. “You stay there, I need to make a call.”
Sasha saw a door leading outside on the other side of the room. He could have run out as soon as Coop closed the door leading to the bar, but he didn’t. He’d reluctantly made the choice to do what he did, and he would pay the price for that now, whatever that price might be.

Tara Oakes Cover reveal

This novella is intended for those 18+ of age and contains strong language, sexual content, and adult situations.

The Kingsmen M.C's saga continues in this newest installment of Tara Oakes' tantalizing new series. In the first three novella's you've come to know and love the characters within the club. Jay and Lil's have had their epic love story play out over the pages of "A Lil' Less Broken", followed by "A Lil' Less Lost" and finally, "A Lil' Less Hopeless". While their fairytale is far from over, the next arc in the series concentrates on some of the other intriguing characters that have been woven throughout Jay and Lil's storyline.

The question on everyone's mind is.... WHO IS CHARLIE? And what is she hiding?
Planting herself deep within the club's inner circle, Charlie came to Chisolm with one goal in mind... to destroy the Kingsmen, M.C., no matter the personal cost. An unknown hatred fuels her mission to take them down. Pairing herself up with one of the club's bad boy's, the M.C.'s enforcer, Clink, seemed like just the ticket to get her in the door.

Once inside the club she had been eyeing from afar, she comes to realizes things are very different from what she had imagined them to be. Villainizing the group as a whole for an injustice that was done to her many years earlier no longer seemed to fit with growing attachments and relationships she was forming.

And then there's Clink. He may very well be the wild card thrown into the mix that derailed Charlie's plans from the get go. Originally, serving as nothing but a way in to the club, and a body to warm her sheets at night, Clink has thrown Charlie for a loop. Determined from an early age to never need a man, Charlie can't help but find herself drawn to him in a carnal and ethereal way. She's tried to fight it, to deny it, but it was in vain. He calls her sugar... but, she's anything but sweet.

A chance twist of luck placed Charlie right in the middle of club politics, where she was able to help free the club's Vice President, Jay, from serving time for murder he did not commit, but willingly confessed to in Book 2. Her risk earned her the hard earned respect and admiration that is hard to come by in the world of the M.C.

Now that she finally has a place of her own in life, a place where she belongs and is wanted... is she willing to give it up? Give Him up? Willing to let it all slip through her fingers? Find out in Book 4 of Tara Oakes' Kingsmen M.C. series, "Bitter Sweet Deception".

If you're looking forward to Bitter Sweet Deception, releasing on FEBRUARY 25TH, make sure you pre-order a copy:Amazon US
