Raymond Rodriguez's days of shoving responsibility to the wayside are over. His older brother wants to live with his boyfriend, so Raymond has to get his act together and find a place of his own. But when out-and-proud David Butler offers to be his roommate, Raymond agrees for reasons other than needing a place to crash.

David is Raymond’s opposite in almost every way—he’s Connecticut prim and proper while Raymond is a sarcastic longshoreman from Queens—but their friendship is solid. Their closeness surprises everyone as does their not-so-playful flirtation, since Raymond has always kept his bicurious side a secret.

Once they’re under the same roof, flirting turns physical, and soon their easy camaraderie is in danger of being lost to frustrating sexual tension and the stark cultural differences that set them apart. Now Raymond not only has to commit to his new independence—he has to commit to his feelings for David or risk losing him for good.


Warning: contains heavy sarcasm, talk of pornography, and erections.

“You’re so full of shit.”

“Why would I make up something like that?” I braced my hands against his throat and mimed choking him. “I confess my bi-curiosity and you call me a liar?”

“Because you are a liar.”

“Okay, whatever. I tried.” I started to get up, but this time he was the one trapping me, wrapping his legs around the backs of my knees to keep me immobile. Not bothering to fight, I collapsed on top of his scrawny ass again. “If that Jewish dude walks up in here, he’s going to think I’m humping you.”

“So?” David locked his legs around me tighter. “What kind of porn? Where? Give me details if you expect me to believe you.”

“I still fail to understand why I’d lie about watching dudes have sex.”

“Because you want to cover for Nunzio being a bag of dicks.”

He really was hung up on Nunzio teasing him. Maybe David had had some bullying experience in his past over the whole blatantly gay thing and it was bringing back bad memories. Or maybe I was just psychoanalyzing him to ignore how good his thigh felt pressed against my cock.

“PornHub,” I said. “The title was, like, horny twink gets fucked hard by tattooed stud.”

David’s brows drew together. “Okay… well… how long was it? I should google it to see if it exists.”

“About twenty minutes,” I said, not missing a beat. “I came before it hit the halfway point. I was already riled up.”

“You’re so deadpan that I can’t tell if this is a joke.”

It said something about me that I’d rather admit to embarrassing things than be called a liar, but the cat was out of the bag. I was already past giving a sweet goddamn. I yanked my phone out of my back pocket, one-handedly tapped the title into the search bar of the browser, and had the video up and going before my better judgment could kick in to point out how awkward this plan was.

The video blared to life— damningly loud in the empty apartment. I swiped my thumb across the bar at the bottom so David could see the good part. The part where the tattooed stud railed the frail twink like a rag doll while pinning him against the floor. It made me bust every time.

Stuttering wails exploded from the tiny speaker of my phone, but I kept my eyes on David. Waiting for him to react to the knowledge that I got off on watching another twink get used. The kid on the video even vaguely resembled David. Except David had nicer lips. And judging from what I could feel hardening in his shorts, he also had a bigger dick.

My mouth went dry, and I shut off the video.

“I can’t… even… I don’t even know what to say.” David wriggled away from me, his face flushed. “Why didn’t you ever tell me you were into guys?”

“I don’t know what I’m into.” I slid the phone back into my pocket. “I’ve gotten off thinking about men and women since I was a teenager, but I only ever tried fucking around with girls.”

“And no one knows?”

“Well, you do. And Nunzio’s nosy ass.” I got to my feet and grabbed his arm, hauling him up from the floor. “I knew Michael was gay since I was a kid, so the concept of a dude wanting another dude was always normal to me. When I was, like, thirteen, I started reading gay stories on this website called Nifty.org, and then I started watching porn. It’s not a big deal. I was just curious.”

“And you’ve never….”


5 Stars!!

We met David and Raymond in Sutphin Boulevard. David is Michael and Nunzio's co-worker and Ray is Michael's younger brother. When Michael and Nunzio decide to move in together and rent out Raymond and Michael's childhood home, it leaves Ray with no place to go. David has to move out of the apartment he was sharing with his ex, because he can't afford to live there on his salary. David and Ray have become close friends over the last few months, so David proposes he and Ray find an apartment and become roommates, Raymond accepts. Ray and David have been fighting the attraction they have for one another for a while, but after they move in together, the temptation becomes too much to resist, and sparks fly.

The first book was good and I enjoyed it, but I really loved this book. I think it's because this book focuses more on Raymond and David, whereas book one was mostly Michael's story. This, I truly felt was David and Raymond's story. It's told mostly from Raymond's POV, but I was happy to get to hear from both main characters in this book. I adored watching the push and pull between them. I loved the hot sex and also getting to see the sweet and loving side as well. We watch these men grow not only as individuals, but together as well. This was an easy read. The writing flowed well and the story was well written. The characters are well developed, and had an amazing chemistry. The story was fast paced and exciting.

This was a very enjoyable read, and I look forward to more in the future from this author! Thank you so much to one my favorite authors, Karen Stivali for recommending these books to me!

Review Quotes for the Five Boroughs series:

“While this second novel of Hassell’s Five Boroughs novels has all the heat, overwhelming desire and tension that readers have come to expect, he also grounds his tale in very real issues, like class and ethnic divides, social struggles, and the difficulty of growing up.” – RT Magazine

"Having two sexy, dirty-talking alphas wrestle their strong feelings for each other is mouthwatering." -- RT Web Reviews

"Hassell doesn't sugarcoat his vibrant characters, making them as gritty as the Queens neighborhood in which they grew up... There are plenty of steamy sex scenes; overall, a welcome addition to romance collections in urban libraries." -- Library Journal

Growing up, Jason Stern led a charmed life complete with devoted sisters, a father who was one of Brooklyn’s most respected rabbis, and a mother who made the world's best babka. He headed to NYU ready for anything—except falling for the wrong guy, coming out, and getting disowned by his once-loving family. In spite of that, Jason managed to graduate with honors. He's got friends who treat him like family, and he's proudly running the largest LGBTQ teen shelter in Manhattan. Life is good, but he's still falling for the wrong men. 

When charming, sexy Quinn Fitzpatrick begins work at the shelter, Jason falls hard and fast. Quinn is tall, blond, funny—damn near perfect. Only if Quinn’s gay, even he doesn't seem to know it. If he does, he's not telling anyone. And he's about one ceremony away from becoming a Catholic priest.

Long hours of work turn to long nights of talking and laughter, and Jason dares to hope this time he's falling for the right guy. But Quinn's got a past to deal with and major decisions to make about his future. When Quinn leaves for a silent retreat, Jason knows the silence may change everything.


Quinn’s lips were back on mine before I could even process what he said.
He wants this. He wants me. He wants everything.
I whimpered. Not a small, throaty whimper. This one came from deep inside me. I wasn’t even sure it was from my body. My entire being needed to be with him in this moment. And not on the couch.
Pulling away took monumental effort, but I managed, keeping my hand on his neck, unable to stop touching him. “My room?”
Words were apparently no more at the ready for him than they were for me. He simply stood and hauled me up with him. I don’t remember ever crossing the apartment that urgently. He followed close behind, and as soon as we were safely inside my room, he closed my door and pushed me up against it. His breath came in warm, rapid puffs, his body inches from mine, hands on my shoulders, smoothing up to my neck, as if he wanted to make sure I was really there. I wasn’t going anywhere. And as far as I was concerned, he could touch me any way and anywhere he wanted.
He stepped closer, closing the gap between us until only a breath of air separated us. I shivered with need, not wanting to do anything to scare him off but wanting as much of us touching as possible. I craved the connection, the heat, the friction—everything I knew was within our reach if he’d let it happen.
His strong fingers eased up my neck, leaving my skin tingling in their wake. He cupped my face, stroking his thumbs against my cheeks. The room was so quiet, I could hear the brush of my stubble against his skin. Killing me. Fucking killing me. “Kiss me.”
It came out like a plea, and Quinn’s lips twitched into a smile as he tortured me one last second before giving in.

5 Stars!!!

Mari: Jason has had a hard life ever since he came out to his family. After living an idyllic childhood and being sure of his family's love for him, he suddenly finds himself on his own. He pushes through with the help of his family and becomes the driving force behind New Home. He's attracted to unattainable men, and who could be more unattainable than an almost-priest? Not that he could've resisted Quinn anyway. 

Quinn is on leave for a few months, prior to making his final decision in taking his vows as a Catholic priest, and working at New Home. He's attracted to Jason and even if he is aware it will complicate his decision he can't stay away.

They fall into a relationship, and while things between them are almost perfect, there's the dark cloud look over them that there's a deadline to Quinn making a decision. Jason is intent on making the most of the time they have together, trying not to think of the impending heartbreak, because even if he hopes otherwise, Quinn wouldn't choose him over God, or would he

Tracy: I fell in love with Jason when we met him on Fire Island. I didn't want him with Collin, but I really loved his character and couldn't wait for him to find love. Karen picked the perfect person for him in Collin's brother, Quinn. They fit and had an electrical chemistry and connection from their first on page scene together. There's was a slow burn, but as soon as they let go, WOW... Fireworks exploded. There was sex and more sex, it was hot, but it was sweet, tender, loving and had an innocence about it. The writing of the love scenes was beautiful and poetic.

I adored Quinn and I loved watching him grow and come into his own. Discovering love, relationships and sex. Discovering Jason. I loved Jason's patience and tenderness. I adored watching him fall completely in love for the first time.

Mari: I loved Jason from the prior books, too, and I fell even more for him on this book, especially after realizing all he'd gone through with his family. Seeing him crushing and then falling for Quinn, was bittersweet, with all that was hanging on the line and reading his doubts even as he gave his all, almost crushed me.

Quinn was adorable! And I also loved seeing him embrace his relationship with Jason so fully. They were hot, hot, HOT! together, but also sweet and as Tracy says, there was something poetic and beautiful to their lovemaking.

Tracy: This was a well-written story that I held me captivated from the first to the last page. Karen kept me on edge the entire time. I just knew the bliss between Quinn and Jason was going to blow up in my face. I waited for the other shoe to drop, and when it did Karen had me bawling like a baby. (When I informed her of this she graciously offered me Kleenex and Chocolates).
Mari: I can attest to that! Hahahaha! Tracy read it before me and told me that she knew things were coming to a head, because they were too perfect. And yes, even kind of knowing that things couldn't remain that good, I got all teary when it actually happened. Tracy: I loved the story, the characters, getting to see Collin and Tanner again. Most of all, I just love Karen's writing and I'll be waiting somewhat patiently for Bryan and Oliver's story.

Mari: I love Karen's writing and while I adored the Moments of Time series, I think this book and Jason and Quinn are my favorites. It was an emotional, loving, fabulous read, one to be cherished for sure!

Ruben Oso moves to Manhattan to start his life over as a low-rent bodyguard and stumbles into a gig in a swanky Park Avenue penthouse. What begins as executive protection turns personal working for a debonair zillionaire who makes Ruben question everything about himself.

Watching over financial hotshot Andy Bauer puts Ruben in an impossible position. He knows zero about shady trading and his cocky boss lives barricaded in a glass tower with wall-to-wall secrets and hot-and-cold running paranoia. Can the danger be real? Is Andy for real?

What’s a bulletcatcher to do? Ruben knows his emotions are out of control even as he races to untangle a high-priced conspiracy and his crazy feelings before somebody gets dead. If his suspicions are right, Andy will pay a price neither can afford and Ruben may discover there’s no way to guard a heart.


Ruben laced his fingers together in his lap, conscious of Andy’s splayed legs bumping against his as the car curved through the dark trees.
How could it only have been a week? Joking and bickering like this, smiling and snapping at each other, they sounded like… something else.
I like this guy way too much.

Central Park watched them through the tinted glass.
“Suit looks great, Señor Oso.” Andy coughed. “Me parece increíblemente guapo.”
Whatever that meant, it sounded positive. Ruben blinked and turned, drunk on the attention. Greedy for it. “Yeah, okay. I don’t habla español.”
Andy checked out Ruben’s shoulder, the legs, the glossy loosened tie. “Means handsome.” It came out a whisper and Andy looked away out the windows.
Uh. “Thanks.” His heart thumped blindly in his chest. Any second it would stumble and knock something breakable over and smash it to pieces. “You got good taste, Bauer.” Too fast, too fast.

Andy closed his eyes. The rhythm of the car rocked his skull against the leather upholstery. “You ought to learn, one of these days.”
“To dress?”
“Spanish. Might come in handsome.” He snorted in slow motion and looked back. “Handy. That is.”
“Sure. Right after I finish medical school and my MBA, before I start my talk show on the space station.”
Andy smiled and sighed, square jaw clamped. “It’s not that hard. Beautiful language besides. Claro.”
Clearly. He’s teaching me.
The town car veered to the left and Ruben had to grip the door to keep from being shifted against his boss’s strong legs. They passed under some kind of bridge and then slowed to a stop. They inched along in the Park’s crosstown traffic.
He could imagine himself on Andy’s terrace staring down at Central Park. He looked out the window at the passing trees: nature boxed in so a few penthouses had something to look at.
Andy rolled his head to watch Ruben watching him.
Buddies. Yeah, right.

Andy pushed himself back, shifting his weight. His hand scraped Ruben’s and… remained on the seat, separated by a millimeter or two. The light hair on his wrist brush-brushed the wisps on Ruben’s, rocked by the car’s motion.
Ruben swallowed. He wanted to slide the hand away from the delicious feathery scrape, and at the same time wondered how long Andy would leave it there. He wondered what would happen if he closed his dark square paw over Andy’s, laced their fingers and squeezed. He could imagine the way their knuckles would intersect and the exact pressure of Andy’s smooth palm against his. That skin.

Occasionally the car jostled them as it navigated potholes and pedestrians, gently rocking their shoulders, but their two hands stayed nailed to the firm, soft leather, barely touching, but touching nonetheless. That warm strip of Andy’s hand made it hard to breathe.
Why didn’t Andy move his arm back? Then again, why wouldn’t he? As the car glided under the black trees, Ruben’s whole being, all his attention, tightened around the half-inch of faint contact between their skin. Ruben imagined he could feel Andy’s pulse, then realized he was hearing his own as it jarred his skull.
If the brushing contact wasn’t an accident, removing his hand first would send a clear message. Easier to leave it there in case.
In case of what?

In case he was a queer? In case his boss was another? In case they needed to go out together to spend another fifty thousand American dollars to buy nothing in particular in a room full of strangers? The money and the man had gotten all jumbled in his head.
Maybe that was it. Ruben had gotten sucked in by all the sloppy luxury and forgotten whose it was. He wasn’t gay, just broke, sober, and lonely. Even if Andy was some kind of closeted homo, he had no interest in playing house with some middle-aged macho he’d known for a few days and rescued from a couch. Ruben had clocked the predator in him. If Andy wanted a dude, he’d lease some Calvin Klein model with a trust fund and a degree in corporate espionage.

And still, and still…. The butterfly stroke of Andy’s wrist hairs dried his mouth and pricked his eyes, and Andy had no clue. I want him.
All too suddenly, the car sliced out of the trees across Fifth, headed east.

I’ll quit in the morning.

*** ARC provided by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. ***

Ruben Oso's life is in shambles. He's a recovering alcoholic, recently divorced and just moved from Florida to New York where he lives on his brother's couch. On his way to his first day of work at his brother's security company, he stops a man from being mugged and that man turns out to be their newest client, Andy Bauer. Andy is paranoid and wants to hire Ruben as his sort of bodyguard, even when Ruben tries to get out of it. Ruben feels there's something off regarding Andy, and tries to quit repeatedly, but the longer they remain together, the more he gets to know Andy, the more he's attracted to the other man, even if he's never been attracted to a man before. When it turns that Andy is not all that paranoid and there might actually be someone trying to hurt him, Ruben can't just resign, not when his feelings have been compromised.

It was a bit difficult to connect to both main characters at first, they are damaged men that are battling addiction, even if they're addicted to different things. Ruben is fairly prickly, aloof, but he's lonely and has been for a long time. Andy is friendly and charming, but it's obvious he's hiding something and there's a lot more to him than that enchanting facade. They are complete opposites, one dark, the other fair, one poor, the other filthy rich, yet, they worked well together. This is GFY, mostly for Ruben, and it takes him some time to understand and accept the attraction, although he realizes early on that it's not just sexual, but also that he genuinely likes Andy. And as I got to see both of them grow and learn to trust each other and understand them and their motivations, I liked them better, too. Although my favorite of the two is Ruben. His willingness to remain by Andy's side even when he wasn't too sure of what was going on, was definitely something that drew me in.

They have chemistry, there is a sizzling attraction between them, even if it did take a long time for them to actually act on it and when they did, it was a bit awkward at first, which made sense considering Ruben wasn't too sure of what they were doing and Andy wasn't all that much help either. But after they did figure it out, boy, was it hot!

The mystery portion of the story dragged a little during the first half of the book, however, once things started to unravel on the second half, the reading turned easier and flowed quite nicely. I loved the twists there at the end, and how it all played out for both Andy and Ruben.

All in all, it's a very interesting read, with complex, damaged characters that manage to become likable despite their limitations at first and for which you end up rooting for.

Rating:  4.5 Stars!!!

Special Guest Post 

Karen, Santino and Damon answer a few quick questions…

What's the most romantic thing about NYC?

Karen: In the most all-encompassing way, it’s that anything can happen there. The city is such a huge, bizarre collection of microcosms---the people, the neighborhoods, the cultures---everything bouncing around off everything else. It’s got endless possibilities. I tend to see romance in those possibilities. And in the atmosphere. It can be easy to get so wrapped up in the pace of the city that you keep your head down and just go about your business at warp speed, ignoring your surroundings. But if you take the time to look up, there’s so much to see. You never know what seemingly random encounter with a stranger will turn into the story of how you met someone who wound up being extremely important in your life. What could be more romantic than that?

Santino: The many missed connections that can happen on an average day. You're constantly surrounded by others whether you're on the subway, in a park, or just walking down the street. In the past, I came across hundreds of interesting people on my daily commute alone. If you think about it, how many opportunities for romance are there in those lingering moments of eye contact on the train? That brief smile in Starbucks? The person  you see every morning while jogging in Central Park? New York is full of possibilities, and you never know when you'll meet someone.

Damon: The interconnectedness. NYC is cobbled together out of these districts and neighborhoods and cultural enclaves that encourage so much interesting friction. That’s why so much art and commerce happens here. Every kind of person rubbing up against every other kind of person. That’s such a rich, fascinating source of ideas and change. Nothing is scary or impossible if you’re willing to work like hell to make it happen. The city is intoxicating and improbable in the best ways.

Is that why you like writing about it? What are your other reasons?

Karen: I didn’t really realize until I sat down to type this answer but, in part, I write about NYC because I miss it. I have such a love/hate relationship with NY in my mind (I loved it while I lived there, but was more than ready to leave when I left) that I can be reluctant to admit that my feelings about it are still so strong. When it comes to settings for my books, there are quite simply times when I know no other place will do. It has to happen in New York. There are other times when the story can take place somewhere else, but even in those books I usually manage to have the couple wind up in NYC for some reason at some point. It’s not even intentional---it just creeps in like a memory or a ghost. And I let it. Because it’s NYC and there’s nowhere like it in the world.

Santino: Yes. I like turning missed connections into connections and happy endings. However, I'd say the main reason I set my books in the city is because the diversity of New York allows for organic intersectionality. It's also beautiful.

Damon: Because it is such a rich, complex, varied landscape with space enough for almost any story I can imagine. All these cultures, the historical sweep, the architecture and industries sprawled everywhere. How could I not write stories set here? There’s so much compelling material scattered on every corner, I sometimes wonder why everything isn’t set in New York. That sounds myopic, but living here has a way of bending your sense of geography.
