Unforgiven by Ruth Clampett
Publication Date: March 9th, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Would you live a lie to hold onto the one you love?

Dean and Jason are best friends, like brothers since boyhood, now architecture students and college roommates. They’ve always had each other’s back, but when one walks in on the other with another man, everything changes. How do you explain to your best friend that he’s the one you’ve always wanted, that until now your life has been a lie?

Desperation and shame are two dirty words that run through Jason’s veins. He carries the scars from a wayward priest who stole his innocence and left him shattered. Meanwhile for years he’s watched Dean pursuing woman after woman, as his own heart slowly breaks.

When their world blows apart, they learn the powerful bond between them has more fire than either understood. Can two broken souls find the light in their darkness and come together to make a whole, or will sins of the past be forever unforgiven?

***This standalone is a M/M love story with graphic sex. Trigger warning.

 Blurb

Love. The most powerful force in existence, but also the most ruthless. Cunning and deceptive. Man’s greatest Achilles heel. Leaving all who embrace it weak and vulnerable.
At least that’s how Dom-for-hire Max Kelley sees it, after the love of his life knocked him on his ass. A brutal blow that not only stole his breath, but decimated his ability to trust. Turning him cold and cynical. The TKO he never saw coming.
Love. A mistake Max won’t ever make again.
Meaning no more relationships—not exactly a hardship. Just the thought of dating makes him queasy, and one of the reasons he doms for a living. To sexually engage without the poison of intimacy. The other reason? To keep his demons sated. With whips and chains, and scandalous kink. A fiery mix that always hits the spot.
That is, until a bright-eyed beauty walks into his life and refuses to leave.
Sean Matthews. College senior and flirt extraordinaire. Max’s newest—and greenest—client sub. Man, is he delicious; able to push Max’s buttons, able to make him crave the things he knows he shouldn’t. Sound the alarm, this can only mean trouble. Unfortunately, deterring Sean proves virtually impossible, and now Max finds himself at a crossroads.
Man up and kick his favorite sub to the curb… or succumb to his own caged desires.

Warning: This erotic, gay, BDSM romance contains intensely explicit sexual scenes both inside and out of the dungeon.

Since Upending Tad is my very favorite M/M pretty much ever, I was freaking excited to get my hands on Max and Sean’s story. I mean how could I not be dying to get my hands on these two? After their unforgettable intro in Upending Tad and their equally memorable departure, I needed to know. Plus, Max is a super hot Dom with an attitude and a very mysterious past.

Kora killed it with this book and managed to surprise the hell out of me. This isn’t some BDSM erotica, this is a gripping story full of detail and intricacies that both tie into Upending Tad and then far surpass it. Max’s backstory is enthralling and heartbreaking, his character an intriguing dichotomy of stoicism and compassion. He will piss you off, make you swoon, make your heart race and your panties melt. Oh…and he is one kinky SOB. I fell in love with Max and his history and find myself pulling for him in a way I never expected. And don’t forget Sean, he is a wonderful addition to the story. His character took me by surprise since we learned almost nothing about him before this book. He is endearing and sweet without being soft. He is smart and a good guy, hot and apparently has an untapped appetite for kink. Who knew? And make no mistake, the kink in this book takes it to an entirely different level. I read some kinky stuff and a lot of BDSM and this book even made me pause. It’s rare to find a book that is both heavy on erotica and heavy on character depth and storytelling. This book pulls it off.

I loved the overlap between this series and the original. I was thrilled to finally get to see the genesis of Max and Scott’s friendship and the beginning of Max and Sean. This entire thing was just so damn GOOD. Bring on Revived…I CAN NOT WAIT.

Synopsis

➤➤➤➤➤➤➤➤➤➤➤➤

With his secret out and uncertainty behind him, Tad finds himself in this new, incredible place. A place where, finally, he can just be himself. Which means no more over-analyzing every feeling Scott stirs inside him.

Because now Tad has the confidence to act on them instead. To be with the guy that he’s head over heels for in every imaginable way.

In public.

In private.

Without any reservations.

An internal freedom he never knew existed until Scott came and unlocked the door. Experience their story’s epilogue installment, filled with playfulness and promise, laughter and love.

And, yup, some of that hot stuff, too.

AfterGlow

Excerpt

➤➤➤➤➤➤➤➤➤➤➤➤

“Text me?” Tad asked. “Between clients or something?” Coming to a stop in front of his Jeep, he really didn’t want to go. All that sex had made him sleepy and now he wanted to… spoon.

“Sure.” Scott smiled. “Though I’d rather call.”

Tad rested his backside against the door. “Then call. Just make sure it’s during my—” His words dropped off as Scott caged him in, hands bracing beside his head. “During my, um, lunch break. Don’t wanna… get me fired.”

“I don’t?” Scott murmured, easing closer. “Kinda actually thinking I do.”

Fuck, Tad loved that look in his eyes. All feisty and possessive and… yeah. Grinning, he leaned back and shook his head. “No way. Just started my awesome new internship.”

“Intern for me. I’ll show you awesome.”

Tad laughed. “Doing what? Stocking towels?”

“How ‘bout personal assistant.”

“Ah. So back to being gofer. Not exactly sweetening the pot.”

Scott smiled and closed the gap between them. “That’s ‘cause you haven’t heard the perks.”

Tad hmm’d as soft lips settled over his and started to move like sex. The lazy kind, though— not the frenzied stuff—that people had after the storm. Because even in the afterglow, atop tangled sheets, they still needed more. Of each other.
“Screw it,” he decided. “I’m in. Why not. Who needs a stupid career.”

Scott chuckled against his lips. “So overrated.”

“Lamest frickin’ concept ever.” All joking aside, though, it was getting late. And Tad really needed to—

“Stay,” Scott murmured. “Crash here. Don’t go.”

5 Star Review

This is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, my be all / end all FAVORITE M/M series EVER. And AFTERGLOW is the perfect end to the perfect series. It had everything I needed it to have, everything I wanted it to have and a few things I didn’t even know I wanted (but it turns out I really REALLY did)

Tad and Scott are just the most amazing, interesting, alpha male, hot couple. They are the perfect blend of gorgeous muscles, beautiful faces, strong male personalities mixed with just the right amount of sweet, shy, sincere emotion. These boys are absolutely my favorite. Their banter is hysterical, the way they are enamored with each other is endearing and being able to see them navigate their way through their new relationship is heart-warming. I have to say, I didn’t think I could love these boys any more than I already did BUT I was wrong….I love them more.

Kora is amazing and considering how invested I was in her boys, I was honestly worried this book wouldn’t live up. But it did more than live up to my expectations, it exceeded them. This entire series is one I will read over and over and ….over.

The only negative thing I have to say is that I’m sure the wait for Max and Sean’s book is going to be excruciating.

ABOUT KORA:

 Born and raised in the Northern Virginia, I’ve always loved to read, but it wasn’t until my preteen years that I discovered my deep-seated love for writing. Though, with published literary teachers and play writers in the family tree, that really shouldn’t have come as a surprise.
Starting with my involvement in social book forums, I then tried my hand in literary role playing. Which, in turn, led to my becoming a fervent online independent writer. Since then, I’ve endeavored to share with the world my impassioned stories of love, adventure and sensual wonderment, my most recent delight being that of m/m erotica.
Now that Afterglow is complete,  I will be continuing on with a handful of other projects, including the novel-length story spin-offs to the Up-Ending Tad series for Max & Sean and Breck & Kai, on target to be released as early as next year.

And The Darkest Flame to Your Goodreads

Blurb

From the author of There You Stand, a new male/male romance about an errant motorcycle recruit and the captivating bartender who sends his wheels spinning down an all too tempting road.

Vaughn O’Keefe has been part owner of the Hog’s Den for years. Privy to plenty of Disciples of the Road business, he’s never been more ruffled as when a new recruit named “Smoke” walks through the door. Something about the man gets his blood pumping, but he knows to keep his preferences under wraps around the club.

“Smoke” Callahan has done a couple of rehab stints and is finally clean, thanks to help from the Disciples. He’s on the right path and isn’t about to get sidetracked, no matter how much the guy who manages the bar gets beneath his skin. Besides, his last relationship with a man left him scared, alone, and with a nightmare of an addiction.

When the Hog’s Den becomes shorthanded, and Smoke is ordered to help out the one man he can’t have, his longing for the bartender reaches blistering proportions. Vaughn figures a night together should be enough to satisfy their mutual attraction. But neither banks on just how scorching hot it might be.

As Smoke’s past unravels and the one person he hopes never to lay eyes on again messes with all he holds sacred, it’s time to involve the Disciples. Problem is, he’ll have to risk his membership, his heart, and his own hide to keep everyone he cares about safe

TDFWenns Review3 1_2 Star Review

 I’m quite new to the M/M world and with each book I read I like it more and more. I have to say that a M/M love story happening in a MC world was really interesting…
The main characters are both strong and brave men. At first, seeing them struggling to tame and control their attraction was kind of hot. I can honestly say that I felt  their chemistry right away. And when they finally admit that one simple night won’t be enough, you’re sure to be in for a journey full of pleasure, angst, hot encounters, honor and acceptance.
I really liked this hot little read and will definitely read more of Christina Lee
