The rings have been selected.
The champagne placed on ice.
The cake decorated.
And the pre-wedding sex is off the charts…

Lucas Vallois and Andrei Hadeon are finally ready to walk down the aisle. There’s just one small problem.

A ghost from Lucas’s past shows up days before the wedding, desperate for help. Against his better judgement, Lucas and his best friend, Ashton Frost, plan a fast trip back to the one place they swore they’d never go: their hometown in Oklahoma. But the danger is worse than they expected.
Now, they’re in a race to track down a killer, keep a young girl safe, and get Lucas back in time to say, “I do.”

Drake and Elliot writing the Unbreakable Bonds series are a powerhouse combination.

I absolutely loved so much about this story, from the multiple POV (Lucas, Andrei, and Snow), to the action, the sexiness and the romance…not going to lie, this one made me melt a little. Blaze is definitely going on my favorites shelf.

The cherry on top of this wickedly good confection is that now we have confirmation of more in the Unbreakable Bonds series to come!

Haven’t started the series yet? What are you waiting for?

I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I’m happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand.
I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I’m in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA!

My biggest no-no’s are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.

A sampling of my “Favorite M/M” stories:

Shelter the Sea Manties in a Twist David, Renewed Ethan who Loved Carter Perfect Imperfections
