M4M by Rick R. Reed

M4M by Rick R. Reed

M4M is a story that follows Ethan Schwartz through three major events of his life: finding love, losing life as he knows it, finding happiness again.

In section one Rick reminds us of the tortures of online dating. The social stigma to be perfect when the whole reason you’re on the dating site is because you know you’re not.

Section two we witness Ethan breakdown after his life is completely altered by a simple phrase spoken by his doctor. He feels betrayed, bitter, angry, and more alone than ever. We get to see him rise from the ashes and find his balance again.

In section two our hearts are ripped out by the raw pain that Ethan is going through. His grieve leaks from the pages of the story and into our hearts. It takes a blast from his past to really motivate him to accept happiness again.

Of Gods and Monsters: Menoetius by Wulf Francu Godgluck

Of Gods and Monsters: Menoetius by Wulf Francu Godgluck

This is a very dark by nature story. One of the main characters and his past is rather vile. You’ve been warned. 😉

Colt really wants to be a badass. Wants everyone to know who is in charge. He’ll never be weak again. Or even perceived as weak. At a charity function he sees Beo Moon and it’s hunt and first sight. Colt is obsessed and doesn’t understand why.

Beo has a struggle all his own. It’s not a past that haunts him but his present. He’s ready to throw in the towel to life when he meets Colt. Colt is brash, angry at the world, and arrogant, but there’s something in him that only Beo can see, sense, and touch.

Can opposites truly attract and stay?

~More About Brooke Lee~
Growing up, Brooke’s mother instilled a deep respect for the English language and a love of words. She taught Brooke to read and write and shared her appreciation for poetry. As a teen, poetry became an outlet for Brooke’s innermost thoughts and deepest, often times darkest feelings.
In school, teachers always told her “write what you know”, so that is what she did. At the not so tender age of forty-three, she started to write her first novel, I Am ShelbyJames (Beauty in the Darkness) and it is what she knows—emotions.
In her spare time—when she’s not writing—you can find Brooke cuddled on the couch with her husband of 20+ years, their fur babies, and a good (often naughty) eBook—unless of course she’s having cocktails with her Bestie at one of their favorite haunts.
