Blog Tour & GIVEAWAY: It’s in My Blood by Sean Azinsalt


Exclusive to Amazon and Available to Borrow with Kindle Unlimited

Length: 62,000 words approx.
Cover Design: Natasha Snow

Blurb
Death eventually comes for us all. But what if there’s a way for older people to regain their youth? To stay a step ahead of the grim reaper?

Turning 40 was the last straw for me. It’s practically 60 in gay years and I wasn’t ready for dentures yet, so I came to Youthology — a program that injects clients with blood transfusions from young, fit and healthy donors.

I chose Nick.

Handsome. Masculine. And more importantly, young.

I thought I hit the lottery, until my life started to change for the worst. Not even the top medical experts can explain what happened to me. From the moment Nick’s blood flooded into my veins, I stopped being me, and I became something new; something dangerous and deadly.

I became my donor.

His obsessions are mine now. His darkest desires, his dreams, his needs, and nightmares are all a part of me, and I don’t want to let them go.

I embrace them and the beautiful boy who haunts both of our dreams.

My blood pact was sealed the moment I entered Youthology.

I never thought I’d become a killer.

This book is part of CRIMINAL DELIGHTS. Each novel can be read as a standalone and contains a dark M/M romance.

Warning: These books are for adult readers who enjoy stories where lines between right and wrong get blurry. High heat, twisted and tantalizing, these are not for the fainthearted.

 Lisbon and Manhattan are only a heartbeat apart


Blurb

Will they get a second chance to rekindle their love?

Isaac was kicked out by his family at a young age.

It took him years of hard work to become his own man. Now he's helping the LGBTQ youth of Lisbon so they don't have to go through the same.

Max has a long and troubled past.

An ER nurse in New York City who volunteers at the local Liberty center, he knows first hand what it's like to lose your family and having to make it on your own.

A chance encounter between the two a year ago has them hoping for a happy ever after, if not for the distance between them, but when Isaac takes a temporary work placement in Manhattan, the two men have an opportunity to find what their love is made of.

Will they make it, or will life's tests tear them apart for good?

You don’t have to read it, but you may want to find out how Max and Isaac first met.

When Alec learns about a local warlock school run by the High Warlock of Brooklyn himself, Magnus Bane, he jumps at the opportunity.

I read this story over the weekend and fell head over heels in love with it. It has everything you could look for in an awesome fanfic; angst, fluff and adorable kid moments. You will find yourself pulled into the lives of Alec, Magnus, Max and Rafael and rooting their happiness! Please give this wonderful story a try! I highly recommend it!

Book Review: Indulge Me (Kitchen Gods #4) by Beth Bolden

Throughout the restaurant industry, Chef Bastian Aquino is a notorious control freak. For two very long years, Kian Reynolds has worked for Bastian as his special assistant, doing whatever he and his restaurant needs. The toughest part isn’t even all the impossible tasks he expects Kian to complete flawlessly—it’s the hopeless, endless love he feels for his older boss.

Falling for someone so far above him might be agonizing, but at least his feelings aren’t unrequited. Bastian fell in love right alongside him, but at the very beginning, they made the choice to abstain for logical, smart, professional reasons.

But love isn’t logical, it isn’t smart, and it definitely isn’t professional. It defies containment, even by Bastian. While he watches Bastian struggle with their attraction, Kian finally comes to the conclusion that he’s done.

He’s done standing off the side, done not getting any of the credit, done letting Bastian define the boundaries of their relationship. Most of all, he’s done waiting.

This is a great slow burn romance! I haven't read the previous books, but I was immediately drawn into Kian and Bastian's lives. They are two complex characters that I truly enjoyed getting to know. I think I'll add the previous books in the series to my TBR to get a better sense of the MCs as well the universe that Beth Bolden has created. Check it out!

I received a copy of this book from the author and voluntarily provided my honest review.
