Book: Legally Bound
Author: J.R. Gray
Genre: M/M BDSM

The last thing Daniel, a hard-working public defender, expected to see the morning after a one night stand was his hook up staring back at him from the wrong side of the law. Assigned to work his case, Daniel vows to keep things professional with Rafael but has a hard time controlling his craving for dominance, the control and the connection they shared. Rafael, a paid dominant in the Chicago underworld, has been dealing with a cop problem for far too long. Used to sex with no emotion, he’s entranced with Daniel’s submission, his innocence, and…could there be something more? Can Daniel clear Rafael’s name, keeping him out of jail and in his life, with the odds, a cop, and the mounting evidence against them?


Daniel scanned them, looking for anything interesting to lift the dreary Monday, and his eyes went wide when they landed on the face of the man whose bed he had been in last night. “Oh shit,” he said too loudly, drawing the attention of the bailiff. He waved her off, muttering, “Nothing.”
“What?” Jesse hissed.
“I fucked one of our cases last night,” Daniel admitted, knowing he would get it out of him one way or another. There was no point fighting his partner’s excellent extraction skills.
“Which one?” Jesse asked, looking over his shoulder, way too amused.
He tried to nod subtly to one of the prisoners.
“You have to give me more than that.” Jesse stood up and blatantly turned around to study the men sitting in the rows behind them.
Stiffening in his seat, Daniel tried to keep his back to the man he had seen every naked inch of, as well as had his tongue buried inside of, till the early hours of the morning.
“Dark hair, six feet plus, green eyes.” He tried to speak out of the corner of his mouth so no one could read his lips.
“The one with the sleeve tattoo and the huge arms?” Jesse asked.
“Yeah,” he answered in a low, sheepish voice.
“I knew it was that one. You so have a type.” Jesse flipped back around to take his seat once more. He instantly went for the files, lifting up folders and setting the large stack right in front of him.
“What are you doing?” Daniel kept looking over his shoulder to see if the guy showed any signs of recognition.
“What’s his name?” He didn’t look up from the stack of files as he spoke. “Rafael,” he whispered as his face flushed just saying his name. “What are you doing?”
“Figuring out what your lay did,” Jesse said, positively glowing by now.
“I really hate you,” he responded, pulling at his tie and trying to loosen it.
“You’ll thank me later.” Jesse hummed, plucking out the file and flipping it open. “Oh, hot damn, you picked a good one.”
Daniel snatched the file out of his partner’s hands, his eyes going wide. Life just got a little more interesting.
All through the arraignment hearing, he found it hard to keep his mind off the previous night spent at Rafael’s apartment. They’d had an instant connection. He groaned to himself as it became increasingly hard to focus.
“Do you think he did it?”
“Who knows, but how many innocent men do we represent?”
Daniel’s stomach knotted. He didn’t want the allegations to be true. “Good point.”

A little bit about the author:

When not staying up all night writing, J.R Gray can be found basking in the warm glow of the Miami sun, or at the gym where it’s half assumed Gray is a permanent resident. A dominant, pilot, and sword fighting enthusiast, Gray finds it hard to be in the passenger seat of any car. Gray frequently interrupts real life, including normal sleep patterns, to jot down nonsense. The bane of Gray’s existence are commas, and even though it’s been fully acknowledged they are necessary, they continue to baffle and bewilder.

If Gray wasn’t writing…well, that’s not possible. The build up of untold stories would haunt Gray into an early grave or possibly a mental institution where the tales would end up on the walls in crayon and finger paint.

A teaser from book two in the Bound Series, Breach Of Contract.

“I have a way out of your marriage, if you want it.” George Sirus attempted to make the statement nonchalant as he stood at the bar uncorking a fresh bottle of wine with his back to Jesse. They were midway through their twice weekly dinners, something they had started up after Rafael’s case was dismissed. He had found he liked the married man more than was healthy and started digging shortly after for a way to help Jesse’s out of his unhappy marriage. George told himself it was to aid his friend out, but there were selfish reasons behind the gesture he would never admit to.

Guilt is dangerous.
It rules my life.

The light, it is refreshing.
It gets closer and I reach for it.
But it is always just out of my grasp.

Book: Wilted (Rose of Thorne 3.5)
Author: Mia Michelle
Genre: Contemporary Romance – A Rose of Thorne Novella 


Like any little girl, I’d grown up believing in prince charming and happily ever after. After all, my parent’s story is probably more epic than any fairytale in existence. Thing is, this little girl grew up and learned very quickly that all of that nonsense is nothing but a fucking joke.
Love heals, but love also hurts. God knows I’ve been hurt more times than I ever care to admit. It’s what makes me the way I am. By all counts, I shouldn’t be this way. I have two parents who have been in love since they were fifteen years old. I’d pretty well given up on the idea, settling for one-night stands instead. It is a lot easier than giving your heart to someone who will never return it in the end.
And then, it happened. Nikolas Thorne happened, that is. He’d walked into my life and knocked me on my ass. I knew without a shadow of a doubt he was the only one for me, but I also know you can’t make someone love you. And just as I’d predicted, he’d left me…alone and gutted.
I’ll never forgive him for doing this to me.
I’ll never forgive him for making me fall in love.
I’ll never forgive him for leaving me… wilted.
