Seattle Stories: Book One


No more kissing a ghost…


A year after the sudden death of his longtime partner, Ben, Theo Anderson is still grieving. The last thing he’s looking for is a new lover, but as Theo discovers, sometimes life has its own plans.


The strength of his attraction to fellow gym member Peter is surprising. So is how compelling he finds Morgan, a new friend he makes online. Morgan is witty and fierce on the internet forum they frequent, while Peter is physically present in a way that’s hard to ignore.


Both men bring Theo closer to acceptance: he needs to lay Ben’s memory to rest if he’s to start afresh with a new lover.


Getting honest about the reasons for his yearlong isolation means confronting why he lost Ben… only just when he’s ready to commit, Theo finds he isn't the only one haunted by the past.


Whether with Peter or with Morgan, choosing to love again—after Ben—might not be Theo’s toughest challenge.


My Two Pennies' Worth

I've had this book for years in a former version but I've always put off reading it because I thought it would be too sad. I was wrong. Don't be mistaken, it will make you cry, as it deals with overcoming grief. But it is also about moving on and finding happiness. 

Well written, it's emotional and tugs at your heartstrings but it also has a lightness of touch that I appreciated. In other hands this book could have been too much for me.

Take a chance on it.





CON RILEY lives on the wild and rugged Devonshire coast, with her head in the clouds and her feet in the Atlantic Ocean. Injury curtailed her enjoyment of outdoor pursuits, so writing fiction now fills her free time instead. Love, loss, and redemption shape her romance stories, and her characters are flawed in ways that make them live and breathe. When not people-watching or wrangling her own boy band of teen sons, she spends time staring at the sea from her kitchen window. If you see her, don’t disturb her—she’s probably thinking up new plots.

Review Tour - Coast To Coast by RJ Scott & V.L. Locey

When opposites attract, it’s not just the team that’s in for a shake-up.


When a stipulation in his father’s will throws Mark back into a family that disowned him, he has only two things on his mind; buying his way out of contractual obligations and running in the opposite direction as fast as he can. When neither option pans out, he finds he is now a one third owner of the struggling Arizona Raptors hockey team, and that is just about the worst thing he could have happened to him. Not only does he hate hockey, but the Raptors are a bottom-of-the-league team, rife with jealousies and anger in a locker room that only knows self-pity. How is he supposed to help turn things around when the only way to start fixing things is to form an alliance with the estranged siblings he’d run from fifteen years earlier?


Then there’s Rowen Carmichael, a stubborn, opinionated, irritating man with superiority issues and questionable taste in music. Butting heads with Rowen, who he’d never even wanted to hire in the first place, is one thing, but there is no way in hell that he will allow the growing attraction to the new coach become anything more. Until with everything on the line, he has to make decisions that will change his life forever.


After years of collegiate coaching, Rowen is given an offer that he simply can’t refuse, although perhaps he should. When he’s presented with the chance to take one of the worst teams in the league and mold them into a future cup contender, the challenge is just too alluring to pass up. He leaves his beloved Ontario behind and moves west to the arid city of Tucson where he is faced with a broken team, shoddy management, and players overflowing with resentment and bigotry.


Never in his twenty years of hockey has he ever seen such a raging dumpster fire of an organization. Yet there’s something about this team and this city that compels him to roll up his sleeves and start dismantling. He has his eye on a new associate coach that’s bound to makes waves, and several key players who should be sent packing. Now all he has to do is convince the new owners of the team that his choices are for the best. If only Mark Westman-Reid, one of three siblings who now own the Raptors, wasn’t so damned rock-headed, so damned snooty, and so damned appealing his job might be a bit easier.

My Two Pennies' Worth

Great return to the world of hockey for these two authors. It's time to catch up with the most hated team in the league, the Raptors. This is a team in a mess and it's the team that Ryker Madsen has been drafted to. Into this mess comes a new coach with no pedigree and a hard-nosed attitude. And he immediately bashes heads with one of the new owners. And before long all that antagonistic tension leads to them bashing more than heads. But they still don't like each other. 

This is a true frenemies to lovers, with several scenes of angry sex, before things settled down. Mark follows Rowan everywhere, watching his every move with a view to getting rid of him. They argue a lot and both get off on the barbed comments and attitude of the other. But ultimately they are good for each other, more than just compatible in the sack. 

I struggled with Mark at first. He had a massive chip on his shoulder and refused to listen to anyone, be it his family or Rowan. I found this especially infuriating with Rowan since Mark knew nothing about hockey and yet tried to lay down the law. However once he acknowledged his family, his relationship with Rowan improved too. 

Rowan I loved. He's hard nosed and determined to prove himself. He loves his players and is determined to do right by them and the Raptors. He doesn't want to fall in love but, hey, this is a romance novel, so of course he does.

I've read all of the previous novels in the other connected series so I can't really comment as to whether this can be read as a standalone. There are events that are only briefly touched on with regard to history that readers would have had to have read the other series to appreciate. And that knowledge is especially required for the true vilification of one particular player. So I think it is important for readers to have read at least the Harrisburg Railers series.   

Highly recommended.

Cover Design: Sally Malcolm

Blurb

The last thing Joel Morgan wants is to fall in love again. Scarred by his failed marriage, Joel’s determined to keep his life emotionally stable—which means taking a job teaching fourth grade, fixing up his house on weekends, and avoiding absolutely all romantic entanglements. And he's doing great.


Until he meets sweet but struggling single dad, Ollie Snow.


Following the tragic death of his sister and her husband two years earlier, Ollie became the legal guardian of their two young sons—much to the horror of the boys’ conservative grandparents. They think Ollie’s too young and too gay to raise their grandsons. So to prove them wrong, Ollie’s determined to parent the boys without anyone’s help.


Until he meets reserved but caring teacher, Joel Morgan.


As the only two men in the school’s Parent-Teacher Association, Joel and Ollie are thrown together over a series of fundraising events and somewhere between the Beach Fun Run and the Christmas Market they fall in love. But Ollie has another reason for moving to New Milton—a reason he’s keeping close to his chest—and Joel’s wounded heart won’t trust a man with secrets. Dare they hope for a future together, or will their past hurts keep them apart forever?



Sally Malcolm was bitten by the male/male romance bug in 2016 and hasn’t looked back.


Perfect Day was her first published male/male romance, with the follow-up (Between the Lines) out later in 2018 and a dozen other ideas bubbling away on the back burner. Her stories are emotional, sweetly angsty, and always have happy endings.


Sally also writes tie-in novels for the hit TV shows Stargate: SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis. To date she’s penned nine novels and novellas, and four audio dramas.


She lives in South West London with her American husband, two lovely children, and two lazy cats.

*Can be read as a standalone.


Twelve years ago, Daniel McCafferty walked away from the man he loved without a backward glance. He threw himself into his father’s business as heir apparent of their vicious criminal empire in Manchester. Forced to deny who he was, who he loved, he buried himself in work and drink.


Christian’s life is steady. He has a good business, good friends, but he’s never had a lasting relationship. Second cousin to Daniel, they fell hard for each other one hot summer long ago. When Christian needed him the most, Daniel walked away. It broke something inside him. Over the last year, Christian asked Daniel for help with a lowlife named Bryce. Daniel gave it. Unstintingly.


When Daniel’s father dies unexpectedly, Christian stands by him. Offers him comfort. But when Bryce rears his ugly head again, and Christian is in grave danger, Daniel whisks him away to Europe. Away from normality, Daniel and Christian are thrown together in the heat of the Mediterranean sun. Daniel’s walls tumble, and for the first time he thinks that just maybe, it can work. All he has to do is keep secret the real reason he left Christian.

My Two Pennies' Worth

I have been waiting for this story since the very first book. Even then with the limited scenes they appeared in together they had chemistry. Here in their own book their chemistry was off the chart. 

I love a broken MC and Daniel has the angst ridden, broken character down pat. He's tortured by a bastard of a father, who thankfully was being buried in the first chapter of the book. Poor Christian never truly knew what he'd done wrong when their relationship ended 12 years previously. These boys have been carrying torches for each other for a long time and you know what happens when you play with fire... 

Emotional and a satisfying conclusion to the teasing glimpses the author had given us of these two. 

Hopefully this won't be the end of this series.







My name is Ruby Moone and I love books. All kinds of books. My weakness is for romance, and that can be any kind, but I am particularly fond of historical and paranormal. I decided to write gay romance after reading some fantastic books and falling in love with the genre, so am really thrilled to have my work published here. The day job takes up a lot of my time, but every other spare moment finds me writing or reading. I live in the north west of England with my husband who thinks that I live in two worlds. The real world and in the world in my head...he probably has a point!
