Blurb

It started with a lie. A night of blurred lines between a teacher and a student.

I wasn’t her student, yet it was the single most defining night of my life.

I’ve never been the man she thinks I am.

Most people have no idea about the life I’ve lived or the words that ring true when it comes to me—still waters run deep.

But you’d be hard-pressed to find a coed on the TGU campus who knows otherwise…because I’ve never corrected them.

The clock is ticking down, it’s Fourth and Inches with the ball inside the one-yard line and the focus is on me, The Guy on the Left. I’ve never felt like a football god, inside I’m…just Troy.

It’s time to set the record straight.

For my son, I‘ll find the strength.

In her eyes, I’m determined to gain redemption.

I will have them both, even if I have to take my eye off the ball.

*The Guy on the Left is a stand alone novel in the Underdogs Series. This is Troy’s story.

Easiest five stars I’ve gave to a book in a long time! There’s just something about Kate’s words and the way she tells a story that leaves me completely enamored with each book. I loved this one hard! So much angst and tension. I literally had tears and I never get those. So kudos to you, Kate! Definitely a must read!

BLURB

Thrown together by circumstance, two men gamble their most prized possessions: their hearts

Trent’s life is full of drama–the ex-wife and two teenage children drama. He’s broke, he’s lonely. He’s also concerned about his health: headaches and misplaced items makes him think something serious is wrong. Meeting Max is a much-needed breath of fresh air.

Max enjoys his lifestyle–interior designer by day; BDSM lover by night.

Until he meets Trent, who is about as far from his lifestyle as he can get, but who also seems to understand him in a way that’s somehow more intimate than sex.

They should have nothing in common, but when Max calls after taking a beating, Trent answers without hesitation.

As Max recovers, Trent is confused by the feelings that grow between them, feelings he’s not supposed to have.

Because Trent is straight.

And Max is twelve years younger than him.

This is a MM romance with age gap, BDSM, hurt/comfort and sexual awakening.

Loved the characters and very interested to read the other books in the series. Both Trent and Max were likeable heroes and their friends are just icing on the cake. I liked the bit of mystery in the storyline of what is really going on with Trent although some of the conclusions are almost an afterthought. Max is such a special character. I loved his giving personality and just how selfless he was. Cute story and pretty steamy.

EXCERPT

He still couldn’t understand where these thoughts were coming from. He couldn’t ever remember being attracted to a male before, but then had he ever really had the chance to sow his seed. He looked at Max again, seeing his gaze on the screen. His heart was beating so hard, he was worried Max could hear it or even feel it from where he was sitting.

Biting his lip, Trent knew he had to make a decision. His breath came fast as he extended one finger towards Max. The first touch made Max jump and glance over at him. Trent saw him swallow hard and then look back at the TV. He ran his finger along his neck, making goosebumps appear, and watched as Max closed his eyes and leaned his head a little further forward. Trent didn’t know what he was doing, he was just following his instincts. Another finger joined the first, smoothing up and down Max’s neck and hairline.

“What are you doing, Trent?” Max whispered.

“No idea,” he replied.

“Do you even know what you want?”

“I don’t understand what I want,” he answered honestly. “All I know is how I feel when you’re around.”

“And how is that?”

“Confused. Light. Horny.” He paused when he had another realisation. “Home,” he whispered.

Max looked across at him at that, eyes wide. They stared at each other for a few minutes, neither breaking eye contact.

“Can I kiss you?” Max whispered.

Trent shook his head but seeing the hurt in Max’s eyes made him clarify. “I want to kiss you,” he said softly.

Max’s eyes widened comically, and Trent would have laughed if he hadn’t been so focused on his admission. Max nodded.

Rising from the sofa instead of scooting across so he didn’t bounce Max, he moved closer then sat down sideways next to him, leg resting on the sofa between them. He didn’t want Max twisting too much and hurting himself further.

He couldn’t believe he was about to do this, but if he was honest with himself, it felt right. He lifted a hand to cup Max’s cheek and brushed against his skin with his thumb. “I don’t know what I’m doing,” he whispered.

“It doesn’t matter. Just kiss me.” Max’s breath cascaded across Trent’s face.

The first brush of their lips brought back the memory of Max’s first attempt at this, when Trent rebuffed him. A fleeting thought that he must remember to apologise for his reaction came to mind before the reality crashed in. He was kissing Max.

Scary hot! We all know those taboo kinks that are talked about in hush voices. Play Me is a steamy novella that starts off in a sex club and ends up against the wall, in your dark house and on the kitchen counter. Quinn has experienced some trauma in the past but with sex club owner, Joshua, she can discover a consensual way to explore her secret dark side. I love Joshua and his desire to fulfill fantasies…especially Quinn’s. The way he navigates what she needs but also keeps her feeling in control is pretty hot. I can’t stop devouring this series one tantalizing bite at a time.

AUTHOR BIOS & LINKS

About Ker Dukey

My books all tend to be darker romance, the edge of your seat, angst-filled reads. My advice to my readers when starting one of my titles… prepare for the unexpected.

I have always had a passion for storytelling, whether it be through lyrics or bedtime stories with my sisters growing up.

My mom would always have a book in her hand when I was young and passed on her love for reading, inspiring me to venture into writing my own. Not all love stories are made from light- some are created in darkness but are just as powerful and worth telling.

When I’m not lost in the world of characters, I love spending time with my family. I’m a mom and that comes first in my life, but when I do get down time, I love attending music concerts or reading events with my younger sister.

Love me some Tijan. Stone and Dusty are very reminiscent of Mason and Sam fast forwarded to the college years. Stone is dominant, protective, hottie and larger than life. Dusty is broken but healing, independent, struggling but strong. I loved them both individually and as a feisty couple. Lots of angst and just intriguing personalities that suck you in and keep you glued to the pages. I really devoured this story because the characters are like a bag of chips you can’t put down until you’re picking at a bunch of crumbs and licking the salt off your fingers.

ENEMIESTEASER51

Excerpt

“Do not think I won’t pick you up and throw you in my truck, head first and everything. I’m two seconds away.”

I stopped and stared at him.

Shit. He meant business. He was glaring at me with eyes that said, “Do not fucking fuck with me, you fucking twit.”

Well. Then.

I sighed. I’ll try reasoning instead. “You’re going to drive me to your house, and then I’ll pack whatever I need and call a cab to take me all the way back to where I’m paying rent. It’s not worth it. Just let me grab a cab now.”

A savage curse bit out, and then his eyes flashed.

His singular warning had been when he told me he was two seconds away. In a flash, he grabbed me, and I was airborne, right into the back of his truck. But he wasn’t done. He leapt up, grabbing the seatbelt over me, and pulled it around me, clicking it in place. He had the door shut, locked, and he was already going around the front before I could even push myself upright and then start to reach for my seatbelt.

By then, he was inside, the engine on, and he shoved off into traffic.

“This is stupid.”

“You’re right. You’re being stupid.” Cursing, he ducked down as a car sped past us. They knew he was driving because they came up on his driver’s side, their phones up and ready to go. It was a car full of teenage girls. “Dammit.”

“Where do you live?”

He opened his mouth, then caught himself. His eyes narrowed in the rearview mirror. “Why?”

I just smiled. “No reason.”

He continued to study me in between still watching the road, and with a soft growl, he shook his head. “I’m not buying it. What? You’re going to tell those girls who are trying to get a picture of me?”

“What’s the difference? I’ll know when you take me to your house. What’s stopping me from posting it on Twitter, or even posting your phone number?”

A litany of curses spewed from him, and the back of his neck was getting red. I was having a heyday with this. It was more fun than I could remember having in a long time.

Until he announced it, “I liked your mom.”

“What?”

“Your mom.” He moved into the far lane, settling back.

I was thinking we had a bit of drive from here, and he settled an arm back on the passenger seat headrest.

“I always liked her. She made me cookies and muffins. And I remember when she tried to teach us to bake cakes from scratch. You were horrible and your cakes tasted terrible, but we’d lie to you. Both of us.”

“You did not—” But I was remembering, and even I hadn’t wanted to taste my cakes.

A tug at my mouth. “She’d wear that ugly yellow apron. She hated that apron.”

“What? I loved that apron. Always felt like it was sunshine. Made me feel warm, even in the winter.”

I noted softly, “That’s why she wore it. For you.”

His eyes lifted to the rearview mirror, holding mine a second again. He swallowed, his Adam’s apple bobbing up and down. “Yeah.” His voice came out raspy. “She was a good woman, and a good mom. She was a good wife. I could always tell.”

I snorted. “Why? Because she wasn’t wasting away like yours?” Then, I winced. That sounded even bitchier to my own ears, more than I thought it would be. “Shit. I’m sorr—”

“Because you guys laughed.” He kept on talking about my family, ignoring what I’d so blatantly pointed out about his own, his face hard. “My parents laughed when they were drunk, and only when they had a party. When there were other people there to laugh with, never the two of them, never the three of us. I was their only kid. I wouldn’t have known better except I half grew up in your home, too, and what I remember the most about growing up was that you guys laughed.”

My throat burned.

“Yeah, we did.” I looked out the window. A hollow feeling starting to dig in my chest. “Until she died. We didn’t laugh much after that.”

“You laughed until then?”

I nodded. I felt the chinks in my armor widening.

I remembered how he did adore my mom. The two acted as if they were conspiring together during our baking lessons, and any time he was in the house. He congregated around her. She congregated closer to him.

“You’re the son she never had.” Then, feeling bad about my shot at his mom, “Your mom cooked for us. I remember that one time she tried to teach us to make lasagna.”

He cracked a grin, barking a laugh. “You sucked at that, too. I never knew lasagna noodles could come out hard like rocks until yours.”

Fuck him, but I was grinning. I couldn’t help myself.

Those were good times, good memories before the shit ones came. And they came soon after that lasagna disaster.

He quieted. “It wasn’t the same. My mom versus yours. We had baking lessons at your house once a month, every first Sunday. My mom tried to teach us how to make Caesar salad, the only second cooking session she gave us, and that one we all got fine. It’s hard to screw up.”

“Says you. You’re perfect at everything.”

He didn’t reply.

I didn’t expect him to. It was true. He knew it. I knew it. The entire nation knew it.

Then from him, “Not at being a friend.”

My stomach kicked.

Hell no. No way. He wasn’t getting back in. No fucking way.

“Oh. God.” I groaned, throwing a hand up to hit my forehead. “Can we not? Can we save the dramatics until I’m able to call a cab to take me back to my place? For real. Enough bonding or whatever it is we were just doing.”

He growled, “You are such a goddamn bitch.”

I retorted, “And you are such a goddamn prick. Drop me the fuck off!”

“With fucking pleasure!”

He gunned the engine, shooting forward in traffic, and weaving until we were nearing my exit. When he took it, I relaxed. The rest of the way was tense and silent, and I knew both of us couldn’t wait to be rid of the other. Then he pulled over to the curb. He didn’t make a move, his only action just unlocking the door.

His head was turned halfway to me, his jaw clenching over and over again.

Fine.

I shoved forward, my head only swimming a little bit as I climbed out of his truck. Once I shut the door and turned around, he’d already hit the engine, tearing away from the curb.

I only had the clothes on my back, on the side of the street, but I’d never been so fucking grateful to be away from him.

Now, turning to the house I wasn’t sure I was still invited to live in, I saw that all the lights were off. Lovely.

Mischa Lombardi is odd. Pragmatic. Perfectionist. Neurotic. Diagnosed with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder at the age of eleven, she can’t remember being any other way.

Thankfully, with the assistance of medication and therapy, her life is well under control. Some might even say it’s perfect: a beautiful husband, her sons Trevor and Tristan, a fabulous condo, work she enjoys and great friends.

Yet she’s still extremely fragile. It’s the reason she always guards her emotions very carefully. And unfortunately, nothing can help her when, by chance, she discovers her husband’s secret — Ava, a beautiful young woman. She was so sure she knew her husband, but now she desperately needs to uncover the truth.

It’s no surprise when she becomes obsessed with Ava, with every trivial detail of her life; her friends, her beautiful mother, and most of all, her gentle and sweet father. Driven not only by curiosity and obsession, but also by jealousy and lust, she heads down a turbulent path as she sets out to uncover everything about her husband’s secret life and all the mysterious people in it.

Gritty, angsty…all of the things I love about a Roya Carmen book. Real life situations with fallible characters who work their way into your heart. My heart was torn in so many directions with Mischa, Brian, Joel and Renee. I was drawn into their drama and what Mischa would do next. It didn’t matter that she was OCD. I kept thinking oh, I know almost anybody would do that. Or that. Or that. I was kept on the edge of my seat as the secret unfolded more and then a little more. This book is not so much steamy as intriguing and titillating with those marital scandals that you sometimes catch a whisper about. This time we are thrown right into the middle and experience everything front and center. Just. The. Way. I. Like. It. I know right now I am ADDICTED to this new series.

Live teaser (2)

Excerpt

When I glance up from my phone, my heart skips a beat. I see her, walking down the pathway, next to a gangly young man. They’re both smiling widely. She’s as beautiful in real life — so young and sweet.

I’m not sure what propels me to get to my feet and follow them down the sidewalk. My pulse races, my hands feel clammy, and I struggle for air. There are quite a few people walking around thankfully, so I don’t feel too conspicuous.

There’s something quite exciting, quite delicious about being so close to her, so close I could reach out and touch her. So close, I can see the silkiness of her long hair, the intricate crochet stitching of her soft long-sleeved pink top, the frayed edges of her jean pockets, the roundness of her perfect little rear. I can even hear their conversation — they’re talking about one of their profs. Apparently, he’s so basic.

I’m not sure what that means. Boring perhaps?

The crowd has dispersed, and I now feel vulnerable. Do I keep going? Or do I just stop walking, and let them fade away. How far will I take it? She’s bound to notice me eventually. The boy tells her that she’s smart, that she should have more confidence in herself.

“Oh, Vince, you always say that,” she says, laughing.

“Because it’s true.”

At the moment, there’s no chance of her noticing me — she’s too immersed in her conversation. Bursts of laughter mixed with idle chit-chat. Joking around. She strikes me as a typical young woman. Does Vince know what she’s really like? Does he know about the older married high school teacher? Are they close enough for her to share all her secrets?

He asks her for her notes, and she suddenly jerks to a stop. He takes a few steps before he realizes that she’s bent down to reach into her backpack. He spots me as he turns, and shoots me a quizzical look, almost as if he knows what I’m up to. I stop breathing for a second, and I’m sure he sees the unmistakable panic and guilt in my eyes. He studies me for a beat, and I quickly scurry past the both of them, my heart pounding frantically.

I practically run away, careful not to appear rushed. I’m breathless, and struggling to walk straight. I have no clue where I’m heading but as soon as I hit the next intersection, I veer right, and as soon as they’re out of sight, I breathe again.

I make another right onto a quiet residential street, and I stop and lean against a light post. What have I achieved? Some might say I’ve achieved absolutely nothing. But for me, a compulsion was satisfied, an itch was scratched. I’ve seen her in the flesh, like I so desperately wanted to.

Sometimes you meet people who are out of this world, so you make them a part of yours.

A one-night stand born from vengeance in a foreign land.
An explosive chemistry neither of us could deny.
We signed a contract on the back of a Boar’s Head Pub napkin that said if we ever met again, we would drop everything and be together.
Eight years and thousands of miles later, he’s here.
In New York.
And he’s America’s music obsession.
The intangible Irish poet who brings record executives to their knees.
The blizzard in my perfect, unshaken snow globe.

But a king he became, and now I’m his servant.
I’m not the same broken princess Malachy Doherty put back together with his callused hands.
I have a career I love.
A boyfriend I adore.
An apartment, a roommate, a life.
I changed. He changed, too.
But Mal kept the napkin.
Question is, will I keep my word?

This book, y’all! Man it was good! I loved the story! The characters were hilarious and I was so immersed in their banter I was reeling and giggling the entire time. It was fun to read. And the deep feels had me tearing up a couple times. Shen nailed it! I can’t help but want more from this couple. This is definitely one I won’t be forgetting anytime soon!

Excerpt

When I finally come face to face with the street artist standing on the side of the pavement, his guitar case open and full of rolled-up notes and change, I understand why his grandfather told me I’d recognize him with the self-assurance of an avid believer.

I’ve never seen someone like him before.

He is beautiful, true, but that’s not what stands out to me. He is radiant.

It’s like his presence has a presence. He sucks the air out of everything in his vicinity, making it impossible not to look at him. Malachy is tailor-made for a huge, colossal heartbreak. Everything about him—his tattered jeans, filthy boots, white shirt, and leather jacket that was broken in decades ago—screams trouble. He looks like a seventies heartthrob. An icon. A Terry Richardson muse. Bruce Springsteen pre-fame.

His voice is like honey and warm spices. It lulls me into a place in my mind I’ve never been before, even though it’s far from beautiful. It is gruff, throaty, and smoky. When someone bumps my shoulder to get closer to him, I snap out of my reverie and realize what I’m listening to.

“One” by U2.

The coincidence is strange. I try to tell myself it’s nothing. This is Ireland. U2 is a national treasure.

His eyes are squeezed shut as he sings. It’s like no one exists other than him and his guitar. Something warm rushes through my skin, like a heat wave, and I shudder in delight.

Warmth.

I always thought there was something melancholy about street performers—the way people walk past them, ignoring their music, their art, their passion. But this guy, he’s the one doing the ignoring. The tables have turned. He’s got the crowd eating from the palm of his hand. Every woman here is under a thick, sweet spell. He’s got that Harry Styles quality that makes girls want to bed him and older women want to adopt him. The men are a cross between impatient, annoyed, and jealous. You can see it in the way they tap their feet, check their watches, nudge their wives and girlfriends to move it.

The song ends, and Malachy Doherty cracks his eyes open and stares directly at me, like he knew I’d be here. Like he watched me watching him through closed eyes. Disoriented—and for some reason wanting to do something, anything—I throw a bill into his guitar case and look away, realizing to my horror that I threw the fifty euros his grandpa gave me. Everyone around me murmurs and whistles. They think it was intentional. I can feel my face flaming red. I bet he thinks I want to sleep with him.

Do I? Probably. But should he know that? Hell no.

I have a certain set of rules I try to live by. Rules that have always served me well. Until now…

Rule one: Don’t have sex with someone you work with.

Rule three: Don’t have sex with your best friend who also happens to be the same ex-boyfriend of your friend.
Rule four: Don’t ever, under any circumstances, fall in love with your best friend.

I guess it’s safe to say, I officially broke all four of my rules.

Doctor Andrew Albright. Sexy, arrogant, insanely gorgeous, and eternally off-limits.
Not only is he still in love with my friend, his ex, but he’s my rock. My perfect best friend.

I crossed the uncrossable line. Broke every damn rule.
Now our perfect friendship is falling apart.

And he’s doing everything he can to keep it that way…

This was such a well written, quick moving, page turner of a book!! Drew and Margot captured my attention and kept it until the very last page!! Drew and Margot have a lot of things in common. They are best friends. They work at a hospital together and Drew’s ex-girlfriend is one of Margot’s best friends as well. Now granted, Aria and Drew dated ions ago but Margot thinks that Drew is still pining for her.

Drew saves Margot from a sketchy situation and these two kissing. Things change at the exact moment their lips touch and they start to realize that they do have feelings for each other more than best friends should. It’s adorable to watch things develop. Their friendship is now the thing that these two don’t want to lose and should they risk trying for more?

There are some funny parts, sad parts and through it all I loved watching this love blossom. Of course, there is a bit of a twist and a little touch of angst and things take a turn but it was awesome to see how it all worked out. I suggest taking this book and relaxing for a bit because you won’t want to miss a page!!
