Review: Dirty Pool by Bethany-Kris

Review of Dirty Pool by Bethany-Kris


Michel Marcello isn't like the other men in his family. He's different. He doesn't want to be in the family business. But don't let that make you think he's soft or that he's not strong and badass like all Marcellos. That's why the Irish mob princess Gabbie is perfect for him in a Romeo and Juliet kind of way. She's feisty and sassy and smart af just like Michel. So when the two meet and fall in love, you just know there's going to be trouble.

I love Dirty Pool! There's something so readable about Bethany-Kris' Mafia stories - they're always suspenseful and passionate and I can't help but love them. But Dirty Pool is somehow different, but different in a good way. I suppose because Michel is different. He's not a made man, not in the family business, but that doesn't mean he doesn't find his way to his fair share of trouble. Mainly in the form of a little Irish princess who I just loved. She and Michel are perfect together, perfect for each other and made me fall in love with them just like the other couples in this Mafia world Bethany-Kris has created. I'm not sure if there's more coming about this Italian/Irish blend, but I certainly hope so because Dirty Pool has the one element none of the other stories I've read in this series have - a touch of sweetness and light to go with the usual suspense and steam always present. Can't wait for more Mafia love from Bethany-Kris!

Even at thirty seven, with a challenging but rewarding career as a paramedic, Bella Gomez is treated as the baby of the family. It’s made her allergic to anyone meddling, so she chooses to keep mostly to herself. Unfortunately that doesn’t stop her family from inserting themselves in her life. Nor does it deter the one man she knows she shouldn’t get close to from showing up on her doorstep. Jasper Greene, an FBI agent with the La Plata County field office, doesn’t even know the meaning of family. His team is his family, which is why—when his boss asks him to keep an eye on his baby sister—Jasper readily complies. Even when the sister in question is a spectacularly developed princess with plenty of attitude. With a shooter on the loose and corruption running rampant, Bella is a magnet for trouble, and Jasper finds hims…

Review: Winter Interlude: An American Revolutionary Novelette (American Revolutionary Tales 2) by Regina Kammer

Review of Winter Interlude: An American Revolutionary Novelette by Regina Kammer

Captain Samuel Taylor and Lieutenant Patrick Hamilton recall their first steamy encounter, which was a MFM threesome in a brothel. It morphed into more and now the two are contemplating their futures with the women they love, and their futures with each other. If you think times are hard for the LGBT community now, think of how hard they were during the American Revolution.

Winter Interlude is well developed, which is surprising given its short length. I am so interested in knowing what is to become of Samuel and Patrick's forbidden relationship. Do they stay together? Or do they go their separate ways, and live out their lives with their women? Now that they've admitted their love for each other, how impossible would it be for them to be without each other? I have to know, now!

If you like MM fiction and/or historical fiction, I highly recommend you give Winter Interlude a read. It's steamy, s…
