Book Info

About the Author
 Elizabeth Noble started telling stories before she actually knew how to write, and her family was very happy when she learned to put words on a page. Those words turned into fan fiction that turned into a genuine love of M/M romance fiction. Being able to share her works with others is really a dream come true. She has a genuine love for a good mystery complete with murder and twisty plots as well as all things sci-fi, futuristic, and supernatural and a bit of an unnatural interest in a super-volcano in Wyoming.

Elizabeth has three grown children and is now happily owned by an adorable mixed breed canine princess, a spunky Welsh Corgi, and their tabby cat sidekick. She lives in her native northeast Ohio, the perfect place for gardening, winter, and summer sports (go Tribe and Cavs!). When she isn’t writing, she's working as a veterinary nurse, so don't be surprised to see her men with a pet or three who are a very big part of their lives.

Elizabeth received several amateur writing awards. Since being published, several of her novels have received honorable mentions in the Rainbow Awards. Her novel Jewel Cave was a runner-up in the 2015 Rainbow awards in the Gay Mystery/Thriller category, and Ringed Love was a winner in the Gay Fantasy Romance category of the 2016 Rainbow Awards.

Excerpt
 It wasn’t long before the others cleared off the ice to prepare for that night’s performance and Rylan was alone with Brett. Skating close to Rylan, Brett said softly, “You really were amazing, and you make that all look so easy.” He took Rylan’s hands and pulled him farther out onto the ice. “See, I can skate backwards, too.”

Rylan laughed. Holding tightly to Brett’s hands he glided away from Brett until he stopped Brett’s progress then spun them slowly around. Brett almost lost his balance and tried to quick step a few times, except hockey skates had wider blades, but no toe picks for such maneuvers. Before Brett faceplanted on the ice, Rylan darted forward and wrapped both arms around Brett’s waist, bracing him.

“Hmm, you fell for my pretending to almost fall.” Brett pulled Rylan even closer.

“You would’ve landed on your face if I hadn’t saved you,” Rylan countered as they skated slowly, Rylan going backward this time.

“Says you.” Brett’s hands moved slowly from Rylan’s shoulder blades and brushed down his back. Rylan arched against Brett’s wide chest. Dipping his head, Brett nuzzled Rylan’s cheek, sprinkling soft kisses over his skin. His hands moved over Rylan’s round ass cheeks and he squeezed, murmuring, “You’re like a drug, addictive.”

Rylan shuddered when Brett’s fingers dug into the tender skin of his rear and he ground his pelvis against Brett’s. They did a slow spin and Rylan let his head drop back, exposing his throat to Brett’s mouth.

Brett gave a gentle push off the ice with one foot, moved one arm up and held Rylan about the waist in a powerful grip. “I loved watching you stretch and spin. That’s fucking sexy,” Brett said right before he scraped his teeth down Rylan’s throat. Rylan arched his back farther, letting Brett support his weight. Brett’s other hand gripped Rylan’s hair, tipping his head back even more while he moved his lips up and down Rylan’s neck, then sucking ever so lightly on Rylan’s Adam’s apple.

Rylan straightened and hooked one arm around Brett’s neck, kissing him. Slight pressure from Brett’s tongue and Rylan opened his lips far enough their tongues slipped and slid over each other. They’d stopped moving and were in the center of the rink. Brett’s fingers combed through Rylan’s hair a few times before he deepened their kiss and slipped the fingers of his other hand down and between Rylan’s ass cheeks, pressing against the thong strap of his belt. The sensation made him tremble.

The sound of machinery made them both jump and separate. Brett chuckled and took Rylan’s hand, leading him off the ice as one of the crew drove the Zamboni out. “I think they want to clean the ice and prep for the show. Ready to head back to the hotel?”

“Yes,” Rylan croaked. He tried to reach between down his sweats with his free hand but Brett grabbed his wrist, holding it firmly.

“Oh, no, you’re not doing that.” Brett shoved off with one foot, pulling Rylan after him and off the ice. “Are you wearing a belt?”

Rylan nodded. “Of course.”

A slow, predatory smile spread across Brett’s face. “Good. Leave it on.”

After collecting Rylan’s belongings from his locker, they made their way to the parking garage and Brett’s car. Rylan’s hard-on had cooled off a little by the time they were on the street and on their way to the hotel. That cool down didn’t last long. Brett’s palm came to a firm rest between Rylan’s legs and his thumb brushed back and forth then rubbed in small circles. Rylan slipped down in his seat and spread his legs, so Brett had more access, enjoying the way his erection was held in his belt.

“Wow, that ... crap I never thought of a dance belt as a sex toy,” Rylan’s words were breathless, and he panted them out.

When they came to a red light, Brett glanced over and snickered. “Damn, that thing really keeps you held tightly. I think this has potential.”

“Uh huh,” Rylan sort of moaned out the sound. He took a deep breath and concentrated on quieting his arousal. “Th-that’s sort of th-the p-point.”

At the hotel, Rylan walked quietly beside Brett and waited while he opened the door, then followed him inside. 
 Brett Rocha retired from pro-hockey while still at the top of his game. Co-owner of a chain of restaurants and an inherited ice skating academy, he seems to have it all. Despite his fame, wealth, and good fortune, though, Brett suddenly finds himself painfully alone.

Ex-Olympic figure skating star Rylan Hennessy transitioned to professional ice dancing with Celia, Brett’s sister and Rylan’s lifelong partner on the ice. Then tragedy strikes, and Rylan’s world is turned upside down, too.

With the unexpected death of Celia, Brett and Rylan are drawn together through their mutual grief. Their bond strengthens when Brett introduces Rylan to BDSM, a lifestyle Rylan has never experienced before. While the mystery of Celia’s murder still needs to be solved, a second tragedy threatens to tear them apart.

Will their relationship survive, or will love be enough to see them through this life altering, harrowing change?

Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book direct from the author, that I write a review was not required. 

Brett retired from professional ice hokey and now runs the centre his parents set up, to teach. His sister, Celia and her partner, Rylan, has moved onto ice dancing. But a senseless crime takes Celia away from both Brett and Rylan, and brings them both together at their darkest time. Then Rylan is hit with a far worse tragedy. Can they get through this, together? 

You know, sometimes, you read a blurb, and your brain plots away, and that's what you expect from the book?? Then the book actually goes off in a way you did not see coming?? And you loved it for it?? 

This book, right here!

I have NO idea what I thought would happen here, but I was very surprised with it!  It really did kinda-creep-up-on-me!! 

Brett and Rylan have chemistry, right from the start. But Brett keeps himself back a bit, and it pulls at you, the way Rylan reacts to that. There is a lot of pulling on the heart strings here! I loved the way Brett gradually introduced Rylan to BDSM, and that Rylan took to it, like a duck to water. I didn't think it overly explicit though and I LIKED that here, but that might just be me!

I did not get how Celia and her fiance's deaths would play out. Did NOT see that one coming at me, not at all! 

Rylan's recovery from what happened is long and painful, but you feel it **taps chest* right here. Every time his brain threw self doubt at him. Every time Brett pulled him out of it, and you cheer, when he finally is able to get back on the ice. And when Rylan listens to Brett when he says "I'm not going anywhere!"

I've read a couple of other books by Ms Noble, and I do like how she can switch from paranormal, to contemporary, to more sexy books. High skill of an author, I think! 

It crept up on, this book, it really did!

4.5 stars
