Before I Ever Met You by Karina Halle Review





I first met William McAlister when I was just a teenager.


He was handsome, had a beautiful wife and was on the verge of success, having just joined my father as his business partner. Mr. McAlister was full of smooth charm, but back then he was barely a blip on my radar. Just a family friend.



Fast forward ten years: I’m 25 years old and a single mom trying to make things right for her seven-year old son. I’ve made some mistakes, grappled with my demons and now I’m back in the city of Vancouver, getting a second chance at a better life.



I’ve started by working for my father’s production company as an executive assistant. My first day on the job and I already know I could have a promising career there.

That is until I see Will McAlister for the first time in a decade.



Now recently divorced and as sophisticated as always, Will has gone from being my father’s friend and business partner to something so much more.



We’re both older, for one thing, and he just oozes this worldly confidence and stark sexuality. Combined with his tall, muscular build and sharp suits, strong jaw and bedroom eyes, Will has turned into one hell of a distraction.



A distraction I’m having a hard time staying away from, considering his office is right across from my desk and I work with him in such close proximity.



But it’s just a harmless crush, right?



It’s just an innocent fantasy of screwing him on his desk, right?



It can’t ever be more because he’s my father’s best friend, business partner, and my boss.



Right?



Wrong.



Before I Ever Met You is a contemporary standalone romance, a light-hearted swoony read that will make you believe in love again.

Before I Ever Met YouBefore I Ever Met You by Karina Halle


Jackie left her posh home young and wild. She lost touch with her family and made some bad decisions. Now she's returned as a twenty-something single mom trying to get her life back on track. She's a pretty good person and tries to be a great mom for her son.

Will is Jackie's father's business partner. His life had some bumps not too far in the past so he's settling also. He hires Jackie to be his assistant. Will is a wonderful man. He doesn't trash talk his ex even if he might have a reason to do so. He's 100% behind Jackie in every step she makes. He encourages and stands up for her. He loves her son and steps right into the perfect father-figure role before even making any moves toward mom. Will is the dreamboat every woman wants inside and out.

If you're in the mood for something sweet, Before I Ever Met You may be right up your alley.

MURPHY by Bey Deckard Audiobook Review

Genre(s): Science Fiction, Erotica, Military, BDSM, Gay



Sometimes when it seems like it’s too late, the right person comes along and opens your eyes… 



Murphy is the continuing story of a D/s relationship between two Space Marines who found each other in the midst of hopelessness and misfortune.



Sarge and his newly minted squad travel across the galaxy on a top-secret mission that could help win the war. However, to Murphy something about the mission stinks, and it’s not just the planet they’ve landed on.





Review

Murphy (F.I.S.T.S. #2)Murphy by Bey Deckard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Updated: Audiobook Review
This is a multi-layer tale. It's skeleton is military life. Military lingo and structure are very present. The outer is the sci-fi aspect. An alien war is taking place. Also genetic manipulation is possible. Many have bionic body parts. It's futuristic so the weapons, planets, aircraft, medicine—most everything is beyond the reader's normal. The inner is about a D/s relationship between to male soldiers growing into love. Yes, for the romance lovers, it even has heart, a hard soldiers' version of it.

Sarge is a grizzly, hot head, aged officer with more fighting experience than anyone. Murphy is his beastly huge, soft-spoken, intelligent partner in every way. (I love Murphy!) Together they make quite a formidable team. In this installment, they are sent on a mission where they soon discover that everything is not what it appears.

This author really has a way of making you fall in love (he kinda sneaks it on you) with his book characters while weaving an interesting fantasy world. The narration is perfect. It's exactly how I pictured their voices in my mind when I read the books the first time. Listening to the story made me feel everything deeper. I really enjoyed it and look forward to more.

SARGE by Bey Deckard Audiobook Review



  • Novellette (16,940 words)
Genre(s): Science Fiction, Erotica, Military, BDSM, Gay

Sometimes it’s just about being in the right place at the right time… with the right person. 

Sarge is the short story of a burgeoning D/s relationship between two Space Marines stationed on an alien planet where an endless war drags on. 

Sergeant Wilkes is a hard man with a long, celebrated military career. 

Brawny, tattooed, and utterly submissive, Murphy is just an interesting diversion… until Sarge realizes he has found something truly rare.





Review

Sarge (F.I.S.T.S. #1)Sarge by Bey Deckard
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Sarge is a sci-fi, futuristic, war, BDSM combo. It's short, but the wording is perfect, no repetition, exactly right for bringing the setting to life in our minds. It contains plenty of action to carry the story solely and the perfect amount of sexuality to hook the reader. It's a romance that isn't overly sweet.

I read this when it first came out and really liked it. I loved the science fiction action and erotica again, but what struck me more when I listened to this audiobook is the relationship. The author is able to convey a deep romance with few words. The narrator portrays the guys perfectly. Sarge and Murphy are in a continuous war with sometimes near death conditions. Both are strong military men, but it's obvious how deeply they care for one another. The outlook is bleak, and they become the light in each others lives.
