Release Blitz & Reviews – Wicked Flame, Ella Frank

May 24, 2022 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By

Love is not just a four-letter word.

Wicked Flame, a steamy, opposites attract MM romance and the highly-anticipated conclusion to the Chicago Heat Duet, set in the beloved Chicagoverse from USA Today bestselling author Ella Frank, is now available!

Jameson Life is hard. I learned that at an early age growing up on the South Side of Chicago. I accepted it, even came to expect it. With a sister who was a constant source of worry, and a track record of losing anyone even remotely close to me, trouble seemed to follow me no matter where I turned.

Some people were born lucky. I was just born.

That’s what I used to believe, anyway, until GQ. The gorgeous guy in the fancy clothes who for some reason decided to look twice at me. He gave me a place to call my own, a space to feel safe, and he made me believe in the impossible—that love was more than just a four-letter word.

Ryan Life is unexpected. I learned that just recently when I walked into a bar on the South Side and found the love of my life—Jameson Clarke.

He’s everything I’ve always wanted, and yet somehow even better than I imagined. He’s brave, brash, protective of those he loves, and under all that bravado is a vulnerability that calls to my very soul.

Jameson’s a storm cloud, but he thinks I’m the sun. If that’s true, then I’m determined to break through the shadows of his past and steal his heart the way he’s stolen mine.

5 out of 5 stars

Wicked Flame is the conclusion to the Chicago Heat duet by Ella Frank. I thought I loved Ryan and Jameson in Wicked Heat, but man was I wrong. We pick up right where we left off. Jameson looking after his sister and Ryan there to support him. Jameson is finally realizing he deserves more. He deserves to be happy. He deserves to be loved. Something he never thought was possible. Ryan is going to support Jameson with whatever he needs. He’s in this for the long haul. There will be obstacles and people who don’t think they will make it, but they will prove them all wrong. Two of my favorite scenes are when Jameson meets Ryan’s family and when they have lunch with Alexander, Sean, Gabe and Marcus. I was laughing out loud, that’s how good it was. Jameson is just so sexy with is bad boy vibe, but he’s also sweet and tender and loving. Ryan is so darn cute! But also sexy and so funny. Together they make the perfect pair. That ending…perfection! Overall, I loved every second of it. I laughed, cried, swooned and they are still one of my favorite couples of Ella’s! I will miss these characters, but hopefully we will see them again!

Wicked Flame is the second book in Ella Frank’s Chicago Heat series. You can NOT read this as standalone so go read Wicked Heat now. Seriously, you won’t regret it.
Jameson still doesn’t understand why Ryan isn’t not only walking away from him, but running. Their lives were completely different growing up and Jameson finally got out of the South Side but he could never completely walk away from that life. It was where he grew up, where is sister was, where is father figured lived but his life would be more than his parents’. He was a fireman and a good guy but guilt ate him. He never thought he would fall in love. He never thought he would go to fancy dinners. He never even wanted those things until him…
His Lois to his Superman.
Ryan never thought going to a dive bar would change his life but it brought him the best thing in his life… Jameson. Jameson didn’t think he deserved love but Ryan was determined to show him he deserved it all. Jameson might have saved Ryan from a pickpocket the night they met but Ryan saved Jameson too. But will it all be enough?
I absolutely ♥️ Ryan & Jameson! These two are fire together but it’s more than that. Their story is emotional, sweet, hot, and swoony. I hope to see them again in the future!
“Hey there, GQ.” My cock throbbed in response to the way my nickname sounded on his tongue.
Alexander chuckled. “You need a minute to pick your jaw up off the floor, Ryan?” Yes.
“No, I—”
“Fine. Food first, your mouth second, your body third until I’ve had my fill. And GQ?”
“I’m really fucking hungry tonight.” I sucked in a breath.
“Me too.”
“If you wanted to say good morning, GQ, you could’ve just picked up the phone.

Release Day & Review – Confessions: Brantley Walker: Off the Books, Nicole Edwards

May 24, 2022 | Posted in Release Day Blitz, Review | By


From New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Nicole Edwards comes the seventh installment in her Brantley Walker: Off the Books series.

After taking a bullet during a botched kidnapping attempt, Reese Tavoularis went AWOL. Rather than return to Coyote Ridge to fix what he’d broken between him and Brantley Walker, he remained in Dallas, leaving his team in the lurch and using his recovery as an excuse to keep his distance. Or, more accurately, to hide from the repercussions of his own actions. Now he’s back to make amends and convince the man he loves to give him another chance.

When Magnus Storme is accused of kidnapping, Reese finds his footing back with the team as they all band together to prove Magnus’s innocence and find the missing woman.

Confessions: Brantley Walker Off the Books is the seventh book in an amazing series. I can’t even tell you how much I’ve grown to love these characters. My favorite part about this series is yes, you get Brantley and Reese’s story, but you also get JJ and Baz, Trey and Magnus and so many lovable side characters. Travis and his gang. Our beloved Walkers and new characters to fall in love with. Confessions is six months after Secrets and I’m not gonna lie, I wasn’t sure it was all going to be ok. I’ve been patiently awaiting this book. Nicole didn’t make us wait long and she didn’t break my heart. Bruised it a little, but sometimes life and asking for forgiveness does that. Reese is back in town and has a lot to say to Brantley. He’s not sure how he’s going to be received, but he’s cautious and hopeful. He needs to put his heart on the line for love. Brantley doesn’t know what to think when he sees Reese. He’s still so angry, but he’s also still in love and happy that he’s ok. They know they have to work through what happened, but in the midst of that, Ava, Magnus’s friend goes missing. Now the team has to work quickly to find her. JJ and Baz and happy and trying to figure out what’s next for them. Trey and Magnus also come to a realization while searching for Ava, and I couldn’t be happier! Overall, it was everything I wanted it to be and more. Looking forward to more from the series and can’t wait for Trey’s story!
