Synopsis

Sometimes the line between good and bad simply depends which side you’re on…

Good guys can have unsavory secrets, while so-called criminals can live by a code of ethics rivaling that of any law enforcement agency. Bending the law for money, power, or revenge is one thing, but what if you’re bending it for your family—for love?

Who would choose to become involved with a man who walks on the dark side…

Some men will go to any lengths, legal or not, and make no apologies to protect their way of life and all they hold dear. But you don’t always choose who you love, and sometimes you just have to decide if you’re bold enough to risk it all and go along for the ride.

Thirteen masterful authors come together to present Men of Mayhem.

Compelling stories of loyalty and passion, love and lust, in which the moral and ethical lines are blurred, and call into question the notions of right and wrong.

What could be more exciting than taking a leap of faith…and landing in the arms of the last man you’d expect—but the only one who truly makes you feel alive?

What if your road to happiness leads to…

Defining Us BannerDefiningUS_XL copy

Add to GoodreadsSynopsisDefining Us: The Story of Calvin & Eric is a Standalone, Full Length Novel. Can be read without reading the other books in this series.

Loving someone completely means giving them your heart, soul, body and mind. What happens when your heart and soul love someone, but your mind and body refuse to follow?

For Calvin Caldwell, being the lead guitarist of America’s hottest rock band 69 Bottles has its perks. Performing night after night with his closest friends, he finds peace with a guitar in his hands. Playing music wipes away his unimaginable past, albeit temporarily. He struggles not only with who he is as a person, but with who he wants to become and what he is hiding.

Being in love with someone certainly isn’t the problem. He’s been in love for a long time, but what defines him is what keeps him from the person he loves.

Seeing something you so desperately want, but can’t have…

Eric Richardson knows exactly what he wants out of life.
He wants to play bass with his friends because performing gives him a high better than any drug he’s ever used. Being on stage is where he feels most comfortable.

But what happens when being on stage is no longer enough to satisfy him? What happens when the person he loves, doesn’t love him in return?

You fight for it.

You define it.

You prove it.

A rock band, A tour bus, One wild ride…

daniell review 5 star a

Calvin has been waiting for his best friend and bandmate, Eric, to come out for a long time. He believes once that happens, he can reveal his true feelings for Eric and they can finally be together. But now that Eric is out, Calvin realizes his horrific past has left him crippled when it comes to pursuing a relationship. Calvin, torn by his love for Eric and the inability to act on it, has decided to let him go.

Eric came out to his parents a long time ago and has been intimate with guys but had taken his time to come out to his bandmates. He has patiently waited for the time to be right for him and Calvin but the times he has tried to take it further, Calvin has gotten physically ill. Now, Eric is second guessing the feelings that he was so sure were mutual.

When Calvin decides to let Eric know why they can’t be together, will Eric run away or will he be the one to help Calvin heal?

I have only read a handful of M/M books but this has to be my favorite! While reading the other books in this series, I wondered what the real story was between Calvin and Eric but I had no idea that story would include such unbelievable horror and heartache. I loved the story being told from both POVs to be able to get the full experience of such a beautiful love story about a love that is unconditional and pure regardless of what body parts they may have. I know this book is fictional but I know that some of these things do occur and to get inside the head of what a victim may be feeling in that situation was touching yet raw and had me in tears several times. This book also includes some emotionally intense and SMOKING HOT scenes between Eric and Calvin that left me needing a cold shower. Thanks to Zoey Derrick for broaching difficult topics in such a sensitive and honest way. I have loved every book in the 69 Bottles series and look forward to reading more from Ms. Derrick in the future!

 

Abou the author

It is from Glendale, Arizona that Zoey Derrick, a mortgage underwriter by day and romance and erotica novelist by night, writes stories as hot as the desert sun itself. It is this passion that drips off of her work, bringing excitement to anyone who enjoys a good and sensual love story.

Not only does she aim to take her readers on an erotic dance that lasts the night, it allows her to empty her mind of stories we all wish were true.

Her stories are hopeful yet true to life, skillfully avoiding melodrama and the unrealistic, bringing her gripping Erotica only closer to the heart of those that dare dipping into it.

The intimacy of her fantasies that she shares with her readers is thrilling and encouraging, climactic yet full of suspense. She is a loving mistress, up for anything, of which any reader is doomed to return to again and again.

She fears him from the first moment she sees him.

Yulia Tzakova is no stranger to dangerous men. She grew up with them. She survived them. But when she meets Lucas Kent, she knows the hard ex-soldier may be the most dangerous of them all.

One night—that’s all it should be. A chance to make up for a failed assignment and get information on Kent’s arms dealer boss. When his plane goes down, it should be the end.

Instead, it’s just the beginning.

He wants her from the first moment he sees her.

Lucas Kent has always liked leggy blondes, and Yulia Tzakova is as beautiful as they come. The Russian interpreter might’ve tried to seduce his boss, but she ends up in Lucas’s bed—and he has every intention of seeing her there again.

Then his plane goes down, and he learns the truth.

She betrayed him.

Now she will pay.

 

NOTE: Capture Me is the first book about Lucas & Yulia and has a cliffhanger-ish ending. It’s a long novella/short novel of approximately 45,000 words (about 200 pages) and is a spin-off from the Twist Me trilogy. It’s not necessary to have read that trilogy to enjoy Capture Me, but the book does contain major spoilers for books 2 and 3 of Twist Me.
