Property Of The Mountain Man (Montana Mountain Men #1) by Gemma Weir

Tall, dark and muscled like a god, Beau Barnett is great with an axe. Every woman in Rockhead Point wants a taste of the mountain man. Including me. Except he doesn’t even know my name. I’m just the girl behind the counter filling his coffee, while he grunts and grumbles, barely making eye contact. Then a newcomer with a charming smile and a fancy suit shows up in Rockhead Point, and refuses to take no for an answer when he asks me to dinner. That’s when I find out Mr. Mountain Man not only knows my name… he thinks I’m his property.

This book has been chosen for our August BABE 2023 book club. If by chance you want to attend or read along with us, here the link to our group. Each month we do a live chat discussing the selected books.

I am really conflicted about how to review this book. Since I know this is fiction, I loved and had fun reading this one. Real life scenario involved? Wow.. Caveman at it’s best. You think Edward Cullen was a stalkish guy? Wait until you meet Beau.

Bonnie is 21 and has been crushing hard on Beau Barnett since she was a kid. The fact that he’s twice his age didn’t help much. He’s always at her workplace having coffee early on in the morning and waiting for her closing hours. One year of him doing this, but never chatting, has made Bonnie consider him untouchable.

Everything changes when she flirts with a stranger. That’s when Beau sees he needs Bonnie to be his. She’s too young but he needs to lay claim on her because she is what he wants.

But holy bananas, Bonnie is fighting his dominance because she wants her independence and isn’t welcoming his caveman ways.

So yeah… fun read but disregard real life.. the title says it all.. Property of the mountain man. You get exactly what you signed up for.

The Dreams of Broken Kings (Fae Guardians #3) by Lana Pecherczyk

After being abandoned as a child, Ada has learned to choose her friends and lovers wisely. And then a nuclear winter froze the world, taking everything she fought so hard to keep. When she inexplicably wakes years later in a new world full of magic, and where humans are the enemy, all she wants is to find her two best friends… if they’re even alive.

Jasper knows he is someone damaged and dangerous, the scars on his body prove it. But his memories have been taken from him. He knows not why, or how, he came to be in the locked room with the pretty, vulnerable human, but he knows three things: the King wants him dead, Ada is his mate, and he’ll do anything to claim her.

Trusting each other is their first step to uncovering the truth and avoiding certain death. But how can Ada feel safe with a strange fae who keeps dark secrets one minute, and then stokes the flames of her desire the next? How can she forgive the broken fae for hiding the most precious secret of all – his heart.

The Dreams of Broken Kings is the gripping conclusion to the Season of the Wolf Trilogy in the Fae Guardians fantasy romance series. It features steamy romance, a dash of time travel, monster hunting, a band of brothers, shifters, fae protectors and their strong willed women from our time.

Only One Mistake (Only One Series Book 6) by Natasha Madison

Only One Mistake
Michael
Being traded after fighting with your coach on air isn’t exactly a good look.
With one mistake under my belt, I knew I needed to focus on the game and nothing else.
But everything changed when I went to pick up my niece and came face-to-face with my very pregnant one-night stand from six months ago.

Jillian
Two pink lines changed all my plans.
So did the guy I had a one-night stand with, a man who made me laugh and smile, a guy who I called to share my unexpected news with, only to find out his number was no longer in service.
Once more letdown by the opposite sex, I figured I was doing this on my own.
Then one day, I was staring into the eyes of the man I hated, the father of my baby.

All it took was only one mistake to change everything.

Captive in the Underworld by Lianyu Tan
Some flowers bloom only in the dark…

In the land of the dead, Queen Hades’ word is law. Hades gets what she wants–always–and what she wants is a certain goddess of the springtime.

Innocent Persephone chafes beneath her mother’s hawkish gaze and mercurial temper. Demeter has rebuffed all her daughter’s suitors, but she is not yet satisfied; she strives to crush Persephone’s spirit.

Still, when Hades pulls her into the dark realm of the underworld, Persephone longs for the world above, even if it means an eternity under her mother’s thumb.

With her tears and pleas for freedom ignored by pitiless Hades, Persephone must learn to satisfy her keeper in all ways, lest she suffer the consequences.

And though she cannot deny that something blooms within her, something forbidden, Persephone despairs of ever feeling the sun upon her skin once more.

No matter the cost, Hades intends to keep her.

Forever.

* * *

Captive in the Underworld is a standalone dark lesbian romance novel set in mythological ancient Greece. It is rooted in the misogyny and cruelties of the Hades/Persephone myth and contains sensitive material. Due to mature content and dark themes, this book is intended for adult readers only. It contains scenes depicting non-consensual sex, death, abuse, kidnapping, assault, and other intimate partner violence. It is not recommended for readers sensitive to such content.

Hana’s Review

4 stars
Lesbian Romance
Dark Romance
Mythology Retelling

I always look forward to queer romances. Growing up reading romances, there wasn’t nearly as much representation as there is now and I am so grateful for it. When I heard that this was a lesbian dark romance, I was intrigued. When I read further that this was a Hades & Persephone queer retelling, I was beyond excited. And I really enjoyed this read!

This was a beautifully written story – the prose, the word choice, the world Tan built – it was stunning to read. And yes, the dark aspects of the relationship between Hades and Persephone were just that – dark. The scenes in the beginning were a little too close to non-con and were very questionable and I could understand some people not enjoying it. However, I will say that the real villain for me was Demeter, Persephone’s mother. The mental, emotional and physical abuse that she wrought on Persephone infuriated me and she was truly the darkest part of this story.

All in all, I really enjoyed this book and I loved Tan’s writing. I look forward to reading more by them!

Stumble (Outback Boys Book 1) by Becca Seymour

Trey has a problem he’s worked hard to manage. It involves not turning into a bumbling mess while around a gorgeous brown-haired man who’s way out of his league. Eight months’ practice from being part of the same LGBTQI+ adventure group, Outback Boys, means he’s perfected the skill.

That’s until an epic stumble makes his head spin and he throws all caution to the wind. But there’s no turning back now, especially since a snow-filled trip means they’re forced to spend even more time together.

Mark has no concerns about the changes unfolding between him and Trey, the giant of a man who’s adorably reserved. He’s been crushing on him for so long that he’s eager to explore more. But when their latest adventure is over and they fall back into the real world, balancing work, life, and a relationship proves more challenging than he envisioned.

Something has got to give, and neither man knows the best way ahead without upsetting the status quo. Can the two Aussies work their way through their new connection, or will they stumble at the first hurdle in their way?

Outback Boys is a sweet and sexy low-angst M/M romance series complete with bruised butts, rope burn, and overworked muscles… all in the pursuit of adventure, of course!

This title was originally part of the Winter Wonderland Giveaway. The Amazon version, however, includes new bonus content–two extended scenes and a must-read epilogue.

Enemy Dearest (Monreaux Brothers #1) by Winter Renshaw

August Monreaux was a stormy sea of a man, the dark between the stars, an electric chill cutting through a crowded room—all wrapped into one wicked, beautiful package.

He was also off-limits.

My entire life, I was kept a safe distance from the notoriously virulent Monreauxs, banned from so much as breathing the same air. And like the good daughter I was, I obeyed those rules.

Until the one time I didn’t …

Only while I sampled him, he devoured me like the forbidden fruit that I was. And in the blink of an eye, my worst enemy became my first love. His poison became my antidote. His touch, my addiction.

And then he made me an offer I couldn’t refuse.

So I didn’t.

But falling in love was never part of our secret arrangement.

Our futures were written in the stars long before either of us were born.

But what a Monreaux wants, a Monreaux always gets.

And August will stop at nothing to make me his—even if it costs him everything.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This angsty, forbidden romance has major Romeo and Juliet vibes but promises a HEA.

As the newest recruit at the Institute of Unpredictable Magic, I’m determined to prove I have what it takes to be part of this elite team of supernaturals who protect the magical community. But I didn’t count on sparks flying between me and my new partner, Logan, the sex-on-a-stick mage who’s as competitive as I am.

Now we’re in a race against the clock to uncover the whereabouts of a potentially dangerous magic user with powers no one’s ever seen before. The only two people who can help us are Nick, a millionaire playboy whose easy charm throws me completely off-balance, and Saint, a darkly handsome convict with a mysterious past.

And as the danger of our mission grows, I realize I’m about to be in way over my head—in more ways than one.

Matters to You (The Hart Series Book 5) by M.E. Carter

Failure is not an option…

My name is Paul Franklin.

You might remember me as Jaxon Hart’s former boss. Now, I go by a different title – entrepreneur. As the owner of a flailing bar, work is my life. With every penny of my savings on the line, living on the property doesn’t even feel like a hardship so much as a necessity.

I expected lots of late nights when I bought this place. What I didn’t expect was a new employee that I can’t keep my mind off of no matter how hard I try.

As a single mom, Kiersten Willoughby’s sole focus is on providing for her son. Yet another reason to keep my hands off of her and stay focused on my goals. She doesn’t need the distractions that come with a new relationship any more than I do. But it feels almost impossible to stay away, especially when she takes her breaks moving on the dance floor, like she knows seeing her sway is my kryptonite.

Still, I’m determined to stay away because complications mean failure, and that is not an option. Success if the only thing good enough for both of us. Nothing else matters.

Divorced, broke and alone I wasn’t looking for a savior… much less three of them, nearly ten years my junior.

But Jacob, Tate and Cole have favors to give. And trading favors is always fun.

Serena’s in trouble, in more ways than one. Her house is falling apart, and her life’s in shambles. Waitressing isn’t paying the bills left behind by a husband who flew to Europe three years ago, and sent nothing back but divorce papers.

Cue Jacob, the irrepressible, sun-bronzed landscaper who insists on mowing her lawn – among other things – for free. There’s Tate, the gorgeous green-eyed mechanic hellbent on restoring the classic car left in her garage, and their friend Cole, the ripped, beautiful contractor with arms like bridge cables and a hammer to match.

By day they’re working together on Serena’s problems in the all best possible ways. By night they’re sharing her grateful rewards, equally and willingly between them.

Emotional bonds weren’t on the menu, and attachments certainly weren’t supposed to form. But when love rears it’s beautiful head and throws yet another wrench into the works? The four of them may need to re-define their budding new relationship.

Can Serena and her saviors come to an ultimate arrangement? Or will it all fall apart like a house of cards?
