The news is out! I’m part of a multi-author kinky m/m series called Bold Brew, which is set around the Bold Brew coffeeshop, in a small fictional town in western Pennsylvania. Each book in the series intersects in some way with this LGBTQ+ inclusive coffeehouse that serves as a gathering spot for the community and is especially kink-friendly.
For more information about the series as a whole and all the books, please check out this series and cover reveal post at Joyfully Jay! It lists all the books and their release dates. You can also enter a chance to win a gift card.
We also have a series Facebook Page where we’ll be talking more about each book, the characters, and having some giveaways, too!
My contribution to the series is Cinnamon Roll, because I really really wanted to write about a cinnamon roll sadist. It’s also a twist on a second chance romance, in that both men have been wanting each other since they first laid eyes on one another, but for reasons, they’ve never gotten together.
Then they get the chance.
This was the story that got me back into writing after a long dry spell. I threw everything I love into it. Pining. D/s. Pain play. Snark. Sexy men. Hockey. Fine dining. Service Tops. Pastries. Coffee. Bondage. Orgasm denial. A really amazing basement. A French-Canadian with longish, dark hair.
The book has some angst, but over all, it’s a fairly low-stress super hot and sexy read that’s got a lot of kinky sex. I did include representation notes and content warnings in my Goodreads review.
Here’s the cover and blurb for Cinnamon Roll!
This cinnamon roll has plenty of bite!
Maxime Demers has had an eye on Tom Cedric for a while, watching him flit from one awful man to another. So when Tom pins an ad to the community cork board at Bold Brew, Max can’t resist reading it. Tom’s looking for a play partner—someone who’s not a jerk—and Max knows he could give Tom what he needs. But first he’ll have to get the man to talk to him.
Tom Cedric thinks Max is way out of his league. He’s handsome, intelligent, speaks a billion languages, and can make a person kneel with a single look—too damn good for someone like Tom. But he can’t resist the temptation to talk to the man he’s had a crush on since the moment he laid eyes on him.
The connection between them is immediate, hot, and tempting, and when Max needs a replacement helper for an impact demo he’s giving, Tom jumps at the chance. A demo should be safe, right? A few hours. Clothing on. No stakes. Neither man is prepared when that spark ignites, and Tom is absolutely unprepared to discover the sweet man behind those dominating looks.
Cinnamon Roll is a stand-alone novel in the Bold Brew shared universe, centered around an inclusive coffee shop in a fictional small city. Each steaming hot coffee shop romance can be enjoyed alone, but collect all ten for the most fun!
This twist on a second-chance romance is 90,000-word cup of steaming hot scenes, a dusting of angst, plenty of fluff, and a guaranteed happy ending!
The whole series will be in Amazon KU for 90 days, then each author has the choice to go wide. I’ll also be releasing this in paperback.
You can preorder Cinnamon Roll on Amazon. It’ll be $2.99 for pre-order and for the first week of the release, then the price will go up (since it’s a 90K novel).
