How to win?

Tell me your top two New Year’s resolutions. Post in the comments below. I will pick one winner at random!

********

My resolutions:

1. Be nice to myself. I try for this one every year, but don’t always succeed. I think it’s important to realize that I’m not perfect. No one is, but sometimes I feel like I should be able to do everything and be everything for everyone. However, life is just not that easy, is it? 🙂

2. Write what inspires me. Okay, I’ll admit it: I get bored easily. I often forget that when I’m bored, so will my readers be, because what I’ve written is DULL DULL DULL. I vow to write only the fun stuff (explosions, action, hot sex)!

Destiny Calls by Samantha Wayland

buy link: Amazon, Ellora’s Cave

author website: http://www.samanthawayland.com/

When I read a novel, I most enjoy those with an exciting plot (explosions are a plus), character development that knocks my socks off, and/or superpowers (I read everything from sci-fi/fantasy to murder mysteries). When it comes to erotic romance, I adore sexual tension. Unresolved sexual tension is the ultimate romance candy: characters who are crazy for each other but aren’t together yet for some reason makes my imagination tingle.

Destiny Calls by Samantha Wayland has so much of this kind of tension that I broke into a sweat halfway through the first chapter. I couldn’t put the book down. I had to find out what happened. I read the entire thing in an emotional frenzy–it took about three-four hours. I read it so quickly not because the novel is short (the print version is 314 pages), but because I refused to budge until I’d consumed it whole.

The novel opens at a club where long-time best friends and police officers Patrick Brown and Brandon Barrett have gone to see the band on stage that night. Amusingly, that particular evening is when the bar caters to the local gay crowd. Since nothing in this kind of book ever goes smoothly, of course Brandon is harrassed by an ugly biker dude who won’t take “not interested” for an answer. Patrick, the straight guy in this particular duo, decides that kissing his bisexual best friend would solve the problem. After all, if he and Brandon are “together,” the ugly biker dude would leave them alone, right? Little did he know that one kiss would rock his entire universe.

Much soul-searching and self-reevaluation occurs in the next few chapters. Patrick had no idea he was attracted to Brandon. Brandon agonizes over the situation because he’d been nursing a crush on Patrick for years. Then, just when I thought Ms. Wayland had milked the sexual tension to completion, in walks Destiny. With the addition of a third into the already volatile mix, the tension ramps up to steamy levels. Destiny is just what the two men need to help them come to terms with their growing attraction. It doesn’t hurt that she is as much a friend to each man as they are to each other. It also doesn’t hurt that the three of them truly fall in love in a realistic fashion. As a heroine, Destiny definitely holds her own with both men. She turns what could have been a major mistake for the men into a passionate affair involving all three main characters equally.

Happily, the rest of the novel details the trio’s growing emotional commitment to each other without ever lapsing into unemotional sexual acrobatics. The sex is inventive, hot, and the key to understanding their growing love for each other. Destiny Calls is a satisfying romance, complete with a delicious happy ending. The conflict is believable, the dialogue is snappy, and the characters likeable. This is the book that put Samantha Wayland’s name on my must-buy-everything-she-writes list.
