“I loved this book.The series just gets better and better.
“Once again well written and plotted. Enjoyed every word and always enjoy see everyone along the way.
Hope we see more.”
“I love M.Tasia and have read all her books. I have kept up with the Brighton books and I was particularly excited for this book. I was anticipating this book since Grady because Tristan was so cute and such an amazing friend, he was was sassy and sweet. Vincent was overprotective like all the Brighton alpha males, but he was defiantly more serious and I loved that about him. I love these two together. Now I eagerly and somehow patiently wait for the one I’ve been waiting for since he was introduced as a character. Shadow!!”
“Another winner from M. Tasia. These guys are some of my favorite characters ever. I love seeing these guys fall in love with their perfect matches. I also love that M. Tasia’s characters act like adults and don’t let miscommunication separate them. Vincent’s Sparrow even references an incident from Grady’s story to make his point about this. I also enjoy catching up with the other guys from previous books. I’m anxiously awaiting Shadow’s story. Get busy writing M!”
“Loved it !!! Love the Boys of Brighton ❤ I probably should have done a re-read first lol I forgot all about Vincent & Tristan but it came back to me as the story went on . The only thing I seen was no explanation of Vincent’s dream ?”
“Nothing could stop Vincent and Tristen love story and they had plenty of obstacles thrown at them. I really loved visiting with the team.
While the book was a good read the substance could have been edited and tightened up. Vincent was a good set up for Shadow and Randy’s story.”
Blink. Blink. Blink. The flickering cursor on Simon’s cell phone screen was irritating as fuck.
#Aristocat69, you there? What you up to? #BigDick88
Christ. The guy wouldn’t take no for an answer. Simon picked up his phone and stabbed out a vicious reply. Maybe this would help #BigDick88 get the message.
#BigDick88, fuck off. You sucked my dick once. Doesn’t mean we’re married. Move on.
He stared at the screen then growled as the cursor flickered again.
#Aristocat69, don’t be like that. I thought we had a good time last night?
As much as Simon loved his new gay hook-up app called crUIzer, (a project in which he’d invested a significant amount of money as an amusing side-line to his core business) he wished the developer could find a way to remotely blow up past sex partners when they got needy.
Perhaps he’d bring it up at the next Board meeting.
Irritated, he pulled down his jock shorts, shot a quick dick pic and sent it to his stalker. He’d just jacked off, so the douchebag got the half-hard version, complete with dried spunk.
That’s as much as you’re fucking getting. Now get lost. I don’t do repeats.
Simon flung his phone onto his bed, and headed for the shower, ignoring the plaintive beep of yet another incoming notification.
He showered and dressed for his meeting. He was about to call the office to check if his overseas visitors had arrived before going downstairs to meet them, when there was a soft knock on his bedroom door.
“So, I absolutely loved it! Johnny is such a lovable character and Gabe…wow! So hot! The perfect amount of alpha. Characterization was good, especially with Gabe and his family. Johnny’s background sets him up to be the perfect man for Gabe. They actually fit each other perfectly. The plot was fantastic! Just enough action and romance to balance each other nicely. Really enjoyed this!”
“What a crazy family with lots of great characters! Open to more books about other characters. Nice quick read with a bit of mystery.”
“Good book! Characters are awesome whether they’re adorable and sweet, or evil and twisted. Good, well-timed plot.”
“Another great book in the series. Can’t wait for the next one!”
“Great book! So enticing and seductive, I couldn’t put it down!”
“I love this whole series and have from the beginning. The town, the sentinels, are all a fantastic family. I’ve been waiting for Coop and Matthew’s story and it was everything I was hoping for. The fall of the infamous playboy of the group had it all. A little angst, some drama/danger, love/romance, and heat. I cannot wait for the next book.”
“This series is simply great. The characters are complex and believable. The plots are interesting, and there is a good blend of action and romance, I can’t wait for Vincent’s story, and to find what is happening with Grady’s brother, Randy. I love the town. I want to live in Brighton!”
William H. Willis
“I am so glad that Ben and Grady to their story…and their HEA. It was quick moving and thrilling and the bad guy was quite a twist at the end. I am happy everything managed to work out and loved that many of the characters from previous books made an appearance.”
“I love all the Boys of Brighton books so far, I can’t wait for the next one. I wish the world was as accepting and understanding as the make-believe town in the state of Texas of all places. Please keep writing, you brighten my life.”
“Read this or you are missing out on an amazing, favourite series of mine!!!! I give this book – no this series 5 *****.”
“I have been waiting patiently for book 4, Jesse and Royce’s story, to be available and I was not disappointed at all. I fell in love with the boys from books 1-3 all over again and can not wait to see where the next 2 potential storylines go.
Jesse and Royce’s story is one of true love. It has heartbreaking moments when you just want to hug them both and moments when you are shaking your head. M. Tasia gets it right yet again and can not wait for the next one.”
“I love all the stories about those boys from Brighton. And just wondering how many more there are! I just can’t get enough!”
“I have been waiting impatiently for their story. I was not disappointed! Wo,w what a beautiful love story between the two.”
“I think your writing just gets better and better. As for the plot, the story was solid, fast-paced, and the characters were well developed.”
Virginia Cantrell, Author of Divine Merit
“So, this book is amazing. The dynamic between Bear and Rick is just perfection. I loved seeing Rick come out of his shell, especially as someone who suffers from anxiety! I can’t wait to see where the next book goes! But what a fantastic love story. I really liked that we got to see it fully develop before the dramatic scenes!”
“This is the first I’ve read by this author. The author set a good stage for the environment and people of Brighton where these characters live and they were easily pictured as they came and went through the lives of Rick and Bear.
I was able to get inside the minds of both Rick and Bear and understand why they felt and reacted as they did. The emotional and psychological growth was lovely to watch. It was so sweet to see Bear tiptoe his way into Rick’s life and heart. To see this big, burly man ease his way around the object of his affection in an effort to gain his trust and love was beautiful to experience. He is patient, protective and sexy. Seeing Rick respond to these gestures was just as beautiful. The author gave us insight into his social anxiety issues and I cringed and cheered right along with him. He accepted what Bear was offering and even though it was a struggle at times, gave back what he was given. I enjoyed this book. I do need to go back and read the others because the hints of backstory has me very curious about the other people in this town”.
“I spent the evening with two lovely characters as they were falling in love. Rick and Bear are both sympathetic and believable characters who come to life on the pages. Although the characters are gay, the story transcends their sexual preference and is a romance any person of any gender or orientation can identify with. Good going! I look forward to more in this series.”
“I love the complexity of your characters. For example, how Spider is a strong, intimidating soldier, but he has a big heart and submits to Dante. And how Dante is the most dominant of the three, but just as in real life, he’s plagued with fear and insecurity. I think these three characters came together to form a complex but well-balanced triad, with all three being strong males who can love and depend upon one another without diminishing the other’s strength and personality.”
“This was one of the best-written books. I really couldn’t find anything wrong. I loved this book and I love this town. I hope there is going to be more, because I think you’re a great writer.”
“The relationship between the three was believable with the two being alpha and over protective with Sam. Sam’s reaction to being left came across as heart breaking and I liked the side story of Miguel and how this was dealt with.”
“These three men together are enough to set anyone’s heart beating into overdrive. When they are apart, they completely break your heart but when together they show what true love is all about. It was such an amazing read that was filled with lust, love, crazy hot sex, danger, action, and so much more. This is he first book I have read in this series but I will definitely be reading more in the future. Definitely a book that I recommend for others.”
“Finally, Travis and Bo! The little glimpses into them we got in previous books had me itching for this book. First, I’ve gotta say – I need to find myself a Bo! He is just the most loving, supportive partner and absolutely perfect for Travis. I knew Travis’ past was going to be rough, but I was shocked at some of the twists in his story. He truly blossoms over the course of this book and with Bo’s unwavering love and patience, and by the end shines as brightly as he deserves to. Read this one, guys. It is such a beautiful story.”
“OK, I truly love all the Brighton stories but I think this one is my favourite. Travis and Bo were so great together. Bo is my hero, his kindness, patience, understanding and his relentless pursuit of Travis was so genuine. Travis is such a strong person and his strength of character was amazing to see. I can’t wait for the next book. Thanks!”
“I enjoyed this trip back into the world of The Boys of Brighton. Every time I return there I feel like I have returned home. I enjoy seeing the characters from prior books in the series. They add that extra oomph to each book. I knew, I just knew, that Bo and Travis’ story would be good. I was not disappointed. Bo is a wonderfully strong character. Just what Travis needs to pull him away from the fear of intimacy he has harbored for years. Travis blossoms under his care and while he gets stronger, he also gives Bo someone to nurture. They are a beautiful couple and their passion is strong. I look forward to more from this series.”
Dante got off the phone and pulled his anxious lover into a tight embrace. “They found Sam. He was at home, just not answering his phone.”
“Is he okay?” Spider pulled back to look Dante in the eyes.
“From what Gabe said, Sam was a bit intoxicated when they found him.” Dante tried to pull off nonchalance but knew he was failing miserably.
“Drunk? But Sam barely drinks. Even when we go out, he usually stops at one beer.” Spider was now acting more anxious than before they knew Sam was safe, and Dante wasn’t far behind, but they had to keep his fear under wraps and move forward.
“Well, apparently Sam and a bottle of whiskey got well acquainted. He’ll have one hell of a hangover tomorrow, but he’s fine.” Dante released Spider and stood staring out of their hotel window at the skyline of Nashville, Tennessee, the location of their latest client.
Dante had missed Sam the minute he stepped out of the door early that morning. He had to push himself to continue walking away. His heart kept pulling him back to the man they’d left sleeping in bed, the man who had grown to mean more to Dante than he’d ever expected, but his head pushed him onward. Leaving was the right thing to do. Still, Dante had picked up his cell phone countless times, waiting for Sam to call; it was maddening.
“You have to get out! The ladder is outside the window, GO!”
“No! I won’t leave her! She unconscious. I’ll pull her out—“cough, cough”—if you can lift this damn thing.”
Gabe could tell the man was serious about not leaving without the woman. He figured it must be his wife or someone he loved.
To have someone love you that much, you would never be left behind. He longed for just that.
He put both hands under the edge of the cabinet while the other man dropped the pole and grabbed onto the woman’s arms. With one great heave the cabinet was raised. The man screamed in pain but managed to pull the woman out before falling to the ground himself and coughing violently.
Gabe quickly lifted the woman into his arms and carried her to the window, handing her off to Lee before turning to pick up the last survivor who was still coughing on the floor. Gabe removed his oxygen mask and placed it over the man’s face before stepping onto the ladder and heading down to the waiting EMTs. Now that they were away from the smoke, Gabe looked down at the man in his arms to find stunning moss-green eyes staring up at him. Wow… just wow.
Desperate for something to clear away the sucker punch that one look had delivered, Gabe could only come up with the other woman in the fire. “Your wife is going to be okay. We got her out thanks to your help.”
Gabe gently placed the man down on the waiting gurney as one of the EMTs removed the oxygen mask Gabe had given him and replaced it with one from a tank in their rig. Gabe noticed more burns on the man’s hands and chest as well as bleeding across his abdomen.
The green-eyed man quickly pushed the mask away from his face. “Wife?”
“Building’s clear, Gabe. Now we just need to keep it contained,” Lee stated through Gabe’s headset.
“Copy, on my way.”
“Wife?” the man asked again, looking adorably confused.
“Yes, the lady under the cabinet is already being transported to the hospital,” Gabe replied, doing his best to not look into those beautiful eyes or at the tempting bottom lip that was currently between the other man’s teeth. The man looked confused for a moment, and then his face lit up in happiness and it was like the clouds parted with just that one look. Where the hell did that cliché come from?
“Janice! She’s safe?”
“Yes, she’s on her way to the hospital. You can meet her there when you’re transported.” Gabe began to back a few feet away; he had to get back to the fire and stop staring at the poor man. Damn, I’ve been alone too long when I’m lusting after a married, heterosexual man.
It wasn’t easy for Gabe to find the right partner being a gay firefighter. Sure, easy sex was always available, but he wanted a commitment. Men may think it’s hot to date a fireman, but they soon found the hours he worked and the dangers he faced to be too much and would eventually leave.
“Wait, wife? Janice? No… I’m gay. She’s my friend….” The man began coughing so violently he was gagging over the side of the gurney.
“We’re outta here, Gabe,” Royce, his friend and one of the EMTs, stated as he replaced the oxygen mask.
Gabe ran back over just as they were about to load the gurney into the back of the ambulance. “Wait, what’s your name?”
Gabe and Royce shared a look before Royce gave a slight nod and smiled. Then the doors were closed and the ambulance sped away, leaving Gabe and the rest of the firefighters to battle the blaze into the late afternoon. Royce would keep an eye on the guy for Gabe as best he could. After all, the man did save his young cousin’s life, and he couldn’t just ignore these instant feelings of attraction, could he?
