Four outstanding contemporary male/male romances from Carina Press authors Layla Reyne, Sidney Bell, Annabeth Albert, and A.R. Barley

Single Malt by Layla Reyne

Eight months after the car crash that changed everything, FBI agent Aidan Talley is back at work. New department, new case and a new partner. Smart, athletic and handsome, Jameson Walker is twelve years his junior. And firmly off-limits.

But Jamie’s talents paint a target on his back, and Aidan is determined to protect him. With time running out to thwart a deadly terrorist attack, they’ll have to filter out distractions—on and off the job—to identify the real enemy, solve the case and save thousands of lives, including their own.

Loose Cannon by Sidney Bell

Released after five years in the system, Edgar-Allen Church is ready to leave the past behind. Miller Quinn—a patient, solidly masculine pillar of strength and support—has always been there for him. Except in the one way Church has wanted the most.

Miller has been playing it straight his whole life. But with Church so close again, it’s getting harder to keep his denial intact. As they fumble their way back to friendship after so many years apart, Miller struggles to find the courage to accept who he really is. What he has with Church could be more than desire—it could be love. But it could also mean trouble.

Off Base by Annabeth Albert

After trading the barracks for a fixer-upper rental, navy SEAL Zack Nelson wants peace, not a roommate—especially not Pike, whose flirting puts virgin Zack on edge. And the questions Pike’s arrival would spark from Zack’s teammates about his own sexuality? Nope. Not going there. But Zack can’t refuse.

Pike Reynolds knows he’s an acquired taste, but he needs this chance to get his life together. Also, teasing the uptight SEAL will be hella fun. Still, Pike has to tread carefully; he’s had his fill of tourists in the past, and he can’t risk his heart on another, not even one as hot and built as Zack.

On Duty by A.R. Barley

Former marine and seasoned firefighter Troy Barnes has always kept his sex life on the down low, until he takes back-to-back hits: physically injured in a suspicious warehouse explosion and emotionally blindsided when he’s ditched by his boyfriend. When a flirty young paramedic offers him a place to crash, Troy’s not so willing to give in. He’s never needed help before. But if anyone can break through his tough-guy act, it’s Alex Tate.

Alex has crushed on Troy since the minute he saw him. Now here he is, stripped of his turnout gear and recuperating in Alex’s bed. The tattooed hero may be a fantasy-come-true, but Alex wants more than rebound sex—and he’s not sure Troy’s ex is gone or forgotten.
““Each book in this series keeps getting better and better. I stayed up way past my bedtime with this one!”—Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Their love is forbidden, but their hearts aren’t listening to rules and regulations…

Lieutenant Dustin Strauss is a reformed man. No longer a twentysomething hell-raiser, he’s his SEAL team’s new XO—and a man with a secret. Or seven. He’s kept his bisexual identity under wraps for years, along with his kinky side and a fondness for the military-themed semianonymous hookup website Joe4Joe. His latest chat buddy is more than a sexy online distraction—they’re taking their very not-safe-for-work relationship into real time.

Petty Officer Wes Lowe has a smart mouth, a take-charge attitude and an uncanny ability for making things go boom. The life of an enlisted man isn’t always enough to satisfy him, but one wild, no-questions-asked weekend with his online love comes close. When a transfer order comes in, Wes feels ready and centered. He’ll make a good impression on his new SEAL team and keep his growing feelings for Dustin on the down low.

But as they log more time online and some very real emotions surface, Dustin and Wes struggle to pretend they’re just a harmless fling. And when his commander introduces Dustin to his team’s newest member, they’re in for the shock of a lifetime…and a crushing disappointment: their difference in ranks means even a friendship without sexual contact could end their navy careers for good.

With their hearts on the line, Dustin and Wes may not survive their next mission, let alone find a way toward a future together.

In an explosive novel of long-awaited release from the award-winning author of The Deeper He Hurts, two emotionally exposed Marines learn to lean on each other—and discover the courage to act on their innermost needs.
 
After years away from home, Tanner Dorsey is back and sorting through feelings that have him in a stranglehold. The hardened Marine will do anything for a fallen comrade, so when an accident leaves Finn Kelley fighting for his life, Tanner’s eager to be there for him. In fact, Tanner’s ready and willing to do anything Finn asks—especially if it means finally acting on the sexual tension that’s always kept him craving more.
 
Finn senses it too—when he brushes against Tanner’s stubbled jaw, when he inhales the scent of the T-shirt that clings to Tanner’s body like a second skin. Now that he’s more vulnerable than ever, Finn knows the time is right to take control, even if it means risking the heart and soul of their friendship. The bond they share goes beyond desire; it’s a bond of brotherhood, forged under conditions few could imagine. But once they cross that line, there will be no more secrets. No more boundaries. And no turning back.
 
The Farther He Runs is intended for mature audiences and includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title. 

Praise for The Farther He Runs

“[Lynda] Aicher delivers an emotionally nuanced and poignant tale. . . . Aicher’s stoic, honorable Marines are exquisitely drawn, flaws and all. Deft plotting helps the author explore the very real struggles of two men in the post–‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ military, and a subplot of loss adds a painful but necessary layer to the story. This is an emotion-packed, satisfying read.”—Publishers Weekly

“The chemistry and connection between the men [are] great from the start. . . . Aicher does a really nice job letting us feel the intense bonds of their friendship and their closeness, while at the same time seeing how their feelings have changed to become more romantic and sexual.”—Joyfully Jay

“This story is heart-wrenching without being over-the-top. . . . It’s sweet; it made me cry and it had me rooting for [Tanner and Finn] as they navigated the rocky path from friends to lovers. Absolutely beautiful.”—Alpha Book Club
After a whirlwind romance, a man with a painful past learns to trust the musician who makes him believe in happy endings.
 
Matt Argento knows what it feels like to be alone. After a childhood of abandonment, he never imagined someone might love him—much less someone like Rhys Nyland, who has the voice of an angel, the looks of a god, and the worship of his fans.

Matt and Rhys come from different worlds, but when they meet, their chemistry is incendiary. Their romance is unexpected, intense, and forever—at least, that’s what their vows promise. Suddenly, Matt finds himself living a life he never thought possible: safe and secure in the arms of a man who feels like home. But when Rhys leaves to go on tour for his new album, Matt finds himself haunted by the ghosts of his past.

When Rhys returns, he finds Matt twisted by doubt. But Rhys loves Matt fiercely, and he’ll go to hell and back to triumph over Matt’s fears. After secrets are revealed and desires are confessed, Rhys and Matt must learn to trust each other if they’re going to make it. That means they have to fall in love all over again—and this time, it really will be forever.

“A touching and flawless second installment of the Riven series . . . [Rend is] beautifully written and delivers some remarkable characters.”—The Romance Reviews
“At Attention is a story of healing, of hope, of that rush of new attraction, of friendship, trust building, letting go, and realizing that you can’t control your heart even when you have binders and lists to control everything else in your life.”—Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

Lieutenant Apollo Floros can ace tactical training missions, but being a single dad to his twin daughters is more than he can handle. He needs live-in help, and he’s lucky a friend’s younger brother needs a place to stay. He’s surprised to see Dylan all grown up with a college degree…and a college athlete’s body. Apollo’s widowed heart may still be broken, but Dylan has his blood heating up.

It’s been eight years since the teenage Dylan followed Apollo around like a lovesick puppy, and it’s time he showed Lieutenant Hard-to-Please that he’s all man now—an adult who’s fully capable of choosing responsibility over lust. He can handle Apollo’s muscular sex appeal, but Apollo the caring father? Dylan can’t afford to fall for that guy. He’s determined to hold out for someone who’s able to love him back, not someone who only sees him as a kid brother.

Apollo is shocked by the intensity of his attraction to Dylan. Maybe some no-strings summer fun will bring this former SEAL back to life. But the combination of scorching desire and warm affection is more than he’d expected, and the emotion between them scares him senseless. No fling lasts forever, and Apollo will need to decide what’s more important if he wants to keep Dylan in his life—his past or his future.

For two gay men in the Deep South, fighting for love and family can lead to one beautiful, sexy, and unexpected knock out . . .

In college, an “are you sure you’re gay?” experiment with his (female) best friend left Sterling Harper married with a baby on the way. Eleven years later, his life is flipped upside-down—his wife has died, his “little boy” is transitioning to her new life as a girl, Alexa, and his embittered in-laws have proven too transphobic to babysit for the summer like they’d planned. They’re fighting for custody of Alexa, though, so Sterling can’t afford to give them more ammunition. If only there were a nice, conservative, trans-preteen-friendly nanny available on short notice . . .

Jericho Johnston doesn’t do “conservative,” but Alexa takes to him immediately. He’s got a teaching job lined up for the fall, a killer smile, and loads of charisma . . . but he is not going back in the proverbial closet. It doesn’t take long for the two men to go from comrades-in-arms against their rarified community to two men in love. This kicks off the looming custody battle with Sterling’s bigoted in-laws, though, and the idea of two gay men raising a trans daughter isn’t going over well with anyone. Now, with so much to lose, Sterling and Jericho must fight harder than ever—for themselves, for Alexa, and for their future.

Most gay men wouldn’t expect to see their dreams come true in a small town in the Deep South. But the road to true love can lead to the unlikeliest places . . .

Disowned by his conservative Peruvian parents, Lito Apaza headed for gay-friendly Atlanta. Resilient, charismatic, and successful, he’s built a life on his terms—with a new family of friends and the unconditional love of his dog, Spot. Then his job forces him to relocate to tiny Black Lake, Alabama. Here, being fabulous isn’t exactly the town motto. However, Lito can’t help who he is any more than he can curb his feelings for a certain sexy ex-soldier.

A former dog handler in Afghanistan, Dave Schmidt now runs a volunteer K9 search-and-rescue team. Until he met Lito, his nights were free. As their hook-ups grow hotter, Dave and Lito have to admit this could be something nearer to romance. It’s not what Lito expected. And Dave isn’t used to the scrutiny of being visibly gay. Yet everything they’ve been secretly searching for could be right here in Black Lake. If Dave and Lito want a future together, one of them will have to make the first move . . .

A Second Chance

I never thought I’d love again. Even if I could, I didn’t even know if I wanted to.

I was betrayed… I had my heart broken. And I was in mourning… I lost a dear friend.

Something inside me just shut down. I didn’t want to go out. I didn’t want to face the world.

But then I saw him again… Keifer… the man who broke my heart. And it all came rushing back. The emotion, the fire… the heat… the memories… the rage.

So I punched him. Yeah, I punched him real good. I thought it would be over. I never expected to keep thinking about him. I never expected that he… that he was still thinking about me.

I always said to myself that I wouldn’t give anybody a second chance. Cross me, and you’re out, gone, and we’re finished.

But now I find myself changing my tune. I don’t know if I’ll be able to give him a second chance.

But I know that I’m going to try… and we’ll see where this goes.

Because I still love Keifer. And doesn’t love deserve a second chance?

The New Assistant

I lost a lot that day. Almost everything.

That day they still come to my door to ask me questions about.

That day the reporters won’t ever forget…

I knew I would mourn…

And I knew I would grieve…

But I never truly realized that… one day… I’d move on.

It all started with my new assistant.

His eyes looked into my soul. I felt as if I was falling into them.

I became obsessed with him.

Me, a man previously married to a woman!

And here I was, fantasizing about a colleague at work, a subordinate, no less. What a cliché.

But it was what I was feeling, and I was determined to keep it to myself.

I failed, of course.

Everything all started to unravel when I told him he was beautiful.

And my world stopped dead.

 

*

 

The Plan

Simon

Bad break-up, moving to a new city, starting a new job.  Who hasn’t experienced that before?

I expected this whole thing to be cliché and predictable.

What I never expected was for my new boss, Greg, to be drop-dead gorgeous.

Six-feet tall, endless eyes, and a sexy-as-sin body that I could explore every inch of.

Just one problem, though… I don’t know if he’s gay.

I can’t stop thinking about my new boss… and of all the ways he could touch me.

Of all the ways he could love me.

I need a plan if I’m going to get this man.

 

*

 

Greg

I never pass up an opportunity, both professionally and personally.

So of course I took the opening to be the new project lead.

And of course I took an interest in the new hire, Simon.

What I didn’t expect was chocolate eyes and gorgeous curls.

What I didn’t expect was to want to take Simon home the very first time I saw him.

But there’s a problem… he’s my subordinate. I’ve never let rules stop me before, though.

I’m going to make Simon mine, and he’ll have to do what I say.
