Blurb: Bartender Tony Gemetti has it all: a rich, hot boyfriend, a McMansion in the ’burbs, and unlimited sex in an expectation-free zone. He thought that was all he ever wanted out of any relationship – until Jack begins making excuses for frequent disappearances. Realizing he has more than his libido and enough drawers for his T-shirt collection riding on this relationship, Tony figures it’s time to find out what’s going on.

Jack Noble has spent his life hiding his real self behind a carefully created image. With Tony, he finally knows real freedom, real happiness. Now a past of buried secrets and lies is closing in, and no matter how hard he tries to stop it, the truth is tearing through. Once Tony learns what kind of man Jack really is, he won’t stay. Jack’s sure of it. Suddenly the past shows up in a completely unexpected way, testing the boundaries of their old, coasting-along-on-fun relationship. Tony indeed finds that Jack isn’t the man he went looking for, but it’s too late. There’s too much at stake to just walk away. First, though, he has to make sure there are no lies left for Jack to hide behind.

Blurb: An unexpected fresh start leads to an unlikely-but-absolutely-perfect pairing in this male/male new-adult novel from bestselling gay romance author K.A. Mitchell

Ethan may have followed his high school sweetheart to college only to get dumped his first day there, but he’s not going to let that stop him from exploring all his new life has to offer. Sex-only hookups, his photography, new friends and a campus-wide game of zombies vs humans all help keep his mind off his broken heart and move him toward building a new, better life without his ex.

And then there’s Wyatt. Mysterious, grouchy—hot. And possibly not gay. But Ethan’s not going to let that stand in the way of figuring out what makes Wyatt tick. New college goal? Get Wyatt into bed and into Ethan’s life.

Step one: arrange a “tutoring” date. Step two: “accidentally” bump into Wyatt as often as possible. Step three: explore the sexy body under that ever-present hoodie. And when their friendship deepens into something neither of them expect, convince Wyatt he’s not just a pity fling or a one-time hookup, but that Ethan is in it for the long haul.

Release Date: January 8, 2016
Available at:  Amazon and Barnes & Noble

Blurb: Former child star and deeply closeted adult actor Jax Conlon needs a boost to his flagging career. He promised his mom, just before she died. He hopes he’s found it in a guest spot with the latest directorial prodigy, but his research for the role gets derailed by an encounter with a handsome stranger with more… hands-on experience.

Oz Parsons is a devoted dad to two amazing little girls. Maybe a little too devoted—he hasn’t had anything resembling a personal life since his ex left, leaving Oz and the girls with broken hearts and abandonment issues. So a hookup with a hot guy is just what he needs to let off some pent-up steam without any complications. There’s something about Jax, though, that’s got him finding reasons to draw things out.

With their goals and families pulling them in two different directions, Oz and Jax have to figure if white-hot chemistry and desire that won’t quit is enough to roll the dice and risk now on forever.

Honorary Blogger K.A Mitchell: I Wanna Marry You + Giveaway!

Honorary_Blogger_Post

I Wanna Marry You

by K.A. Mitchell

Hi! Thanks for having me on the blog!

I got my first marriage proposal at the age of twenty-two.

A good friend and I were making out, outside a bar, and she told me she loved me and asked me to marry her. I thought the proposal was one of those things that happened in the wee hours when one’s judgment has been compromised by substances–she maintained she was serious–but the fact remained that, at that time, it wasn’t legal and we didn’t believe it would ever be. I told her no.

The first time I proposed, I got turned down, too.  I proposed on the beach. In the glow of tiki torches. On bended knee. With my heart in my hands. Though we’d been together for over a decade, the woman (who is now my entirely legal wife, thank you) turned me down. Like a bedspread.  So I had a lot of renewed sympathy for my friend, and for Theo, one of the stars of Put a Ring On It.

My now-wife’s reasons were thus: It wouldn’t make a difference.  We shouldn’t get our hopes up and do something just because we could.

But as soon as it was legal in Massachusetts, she said to me, “Let’s do it.”   And I can say with no hyperbole, it’s mattered a whole hell of a lot.

Put a Ring on It, the first book in my new series Ready or Knot, is available tomorrow and I’m bouncing with excitement to share it with you all. The series focuses four guys who have been close friends since they met in college.  Every one of the characters in Put a Ring on It and the books to follow has a different opinion about marriage and what it means to their lives. No matter what someone’s orientation is, the decision to get married is both familiar to everyone in love and unique to that person because of lived experience. I’ve been having a lot of fun exploring character emotions about marriage in Ready or Knot. I hope you’ll enjoy it with me.

Oh, and to answer a question someone poses in the book: as awesome as premarital sex is, it’s even better after marriage. Take it as a promise from an old married lady.blogger_bee_trans

About Put a Ring On It

26084594Kieran Delaney-Schwartz—adoptee, underachiever, and self-professed slacker IT guy—lives his under-the-radar life by the motto: Don’t try, don’t fail. His adopted siblings are all overachievers thanks to his driven, liberal parents, but Kieran has elected to avoid disappointing anyone by not getting their hopes up. He’s coasting through his early twenties when he’s hit head-on by Theo. The successful decade-older Broadway producer sweeps him off his feet for a whirlwind thirteen months that are pretty sweet until it all comes screeching to a halt on Valentine’s Day, with an unexpected proposal via a NYC Times Square Flash mob.

Now everyone wants in on the wedding, except the grooms…

About K.A. Mitchell

K.A. Mitchell discovered the magic of writing at an early age when she learned that a carefully crayoned note of apology sent to the kitchen in a toy truck would earn her a reprieve from banishment to her room. Her career as a spin-control artist was cut short when her family moved to a two-story house, and her trucks would not roll safely down the stairs. Around the same time, she decided that Chip and Ken made a much cuter couple than Ken and Barbie and was perplexed when invitations to play Barbie dropped off. She never stopped making stuff up, though, and was surprised to find out that people would pay her to do it. Although the men in her stories usually carry more emotional baggage than even LAX can lose in a year, she guarantees they always find their sexy way to a happy ending.

Length: 266 Pages
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Release Date: December 9, 2008
Available at:  Amazon and Barnes & Noble

Blurb: Immovable object? Meet the irresistible force.

Paramedic Aaron Chase doesn’t have anything against love. It just comes with a lot of responsibility, like when he had to raise his sister and brothers after their drug-addicted mom took off for good. Now that the last one is off to college, Aaron’s anticipating enjoying life on his own terms. He certainly wasn’t expecting Joey Miller to accidentally drop into his life. Joey’s sexy, funny and annoyingly optimistic, and his tendency to get into trouble keeps sending him Aaron’s way. Even the fact that Joey works for the hated social work system isn’t reason enough to keep him out of Aaron’s bed.

Joey knows all about love. He’s fallen in it ten times he thinks. It’s not that he can’t tell the difference between sex and love. All that experience has to count for something, right? With Aaron it’s different. Maybe because there’s something to fight for. This time Joey’s fallen for good. He’s not going to let number eleven get away.

Book Review: Bad Behavior by K.A. Mitchell

Genre: MM Contemporary
Length: 366 Pages
Publisher: Samhain Publishing
Release Date: December 16, 2014
Available at: Samhain Publishing, Amazon and Barnes & Noble
Add it to your shelf: Goodreads

Blurb: In a life full of yes, no is the sexiest word he’s ever heard.

David Beauchamp might as well be in jail. After one too many misunderstandings with the law, he’s chained to the city by the GPS and alcohol sensor strapped to his ankle. Awaiting trial, cut off from usual forms of entertainment, he goes looking for a nameless sexual encounter and winds up with almost more than he can handle.

Reality comes crashing back the next day with a summons for another random drug test, and the man behind the badge turns out to be the very man who took him for one hell of a ride.

Probation Officer Tai Fonoti is used to handling other people’s problems, but he’s horrified when one of the clients his boss dumps on him is the sweet piece of ass he screwed the night before. It makes getting a urine sample a pretty loaded situation.

That single encounter left Beach craving Tai’s unique brand of control and discipline. But while Tai relishes laying down the law in the bedroom, the letter of the law stands between them and kinkily ever after.

Warning: This book is kinky. I mean kinky. With lots of sex. It describes a fully consensual, intense D/s relationship which changes a character’s life. It includes impact play and bondage along the way to a very happily ever after.
