Pegasus is thrilled when Iphicles agrees to be his mate, knowing the man is petrified of animals. Until he discovers that the only reason Iphicles agreed is because Iphicles must mate with him in order to fulfill his part of the prophecy to release Zeus from his prison. Pegasus's anger overtakes him and he says things he regrets. However, before he can apologize he finds out that Iphicles has annulled the mating and has fled into the path of Aries's armies.
Setting out to find his mate and convince him to give them a chance at a lifetime of happiness, can Pegasus find Iphicles before the armies kill his mate? And can Pegasus save his mating before it is too late?

Holly discovers the difference between book boyfriends and real-life lovers when Alan Wilson and Duncan Moore aim for her. Alan and Duncan recognize Holly as theirs. Now they just have to convince the virginal librarian that they can live up to any fictional heroes.
As Holly learns to trust those smokin’ hot wranglers, she dares to explore her sensual side—the woman within longing to sample all the delights she loved to read about.
Alan and Duncan already know that Lusty is home, and once they get to know Holly they understand she’s the woman that’s always been destined to be theirs. They long to give her the happy-ever-after she’s dreamed of. Then their past comes back to bite them in the ass.
Years before, they helped uncover a conspiracy, in which racehorses were killed for profit. They didn’t take the threats against them seriously then, but they’re about to discover just how deadly a woman scorned can be.




Review
I am headed back to one of my favorite fictional towns in Cara Covington’sLusty, Texas series.  In Love Under Two Wranglers, Ms. Covington tickled my funny bone as Holly took lessons learned from reading romance books to heart as she navigated her budding relationship with Alan and Duncan.  I adored Holly.  She was so quiet and a such a typical librarian, at least on the outside.  Ms. Covington took that librarian stereotype and flipped it on its head with Holly.  When she became comfortable with her beaus, she let loose.  She moved past her embarrassment and allowed her inner vixen out to play.  And I loved that Alan and Duncan made her feel safe enough to allow the budding siren the freedom to play and use what she learned from her years of “research.”   Speaking of feeling safe, I loved Alan and Duncan.  While unrelated to anyone in Lusty, they fit right in.  They saw each other as brothers and wanted to have what was easy in Lusty, a woman to share.  And when they saw her they were determined to treat her right.  They understood that Holly was completely innocent and wanted her to feel cherished.  I loved their novel approach and their sincerity as they learned the woman who had captured their heart.
Ms. Covington wrote a story full of layers.  The story and characters had depth and humor permeated throughout.  This story is yet another example as to why Ms. Covington is one of my must read authors!

Publisher: LooseID
Pages: 128
Genre: MM, Contemporary
Reviewer: Redz








Publisher’s Blurb
Homeless, plagued by nightmares from an abusive childhood, nineteen-year-old Tyler Bishop does whatever he can to escape his pain. Drugs, alcohol, everything’s game—at least until handsome Dean Henderson struts into his life and shows him a better way. For two years, Dean’s love and friendship give Tyler the strength to face his demons instead of running.

Then tragedy strikes.

When a drunk driver kills his parents and severely injures his eleven-year-old sister, Emily, Dean panics. With Emily facing years of extensive—not to mention expensive—rehabilitation, he needs health insurance fast. Forcing himself back into the closet, Dean drops out of college and enlists in the Army. For two years, he plays the perfect soldier, but the pressure of pretending to be someone he’s not is suffocating.

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell repealed.

Out on walkabout after a painful emotional setback, Tyler isn’t prepared for the backlash of seeing Dean again. Face to face for the first time in five years, sparks—and tempers!—fly. Before sanity catches up with them, they’re locked in a fierce kiss. But with Dean about to deploy and Tyler wrestling new demons is a reconciliation possible? Or is their reunion doomed before it even begins?






Review
In the Middle of Nowhere by Brandi Evans really tugged at my heartstrings. I adored her men,  Tyler is a sweet man who has been hurt a lot in his life.  Dean he is a tough but sweet man who gives Tyler exactly what he needs. He also has a responsibility of his sister, he really has a heart and soul that jumps off the pages. 
I kept finding myself rereading this book just because I never wanted it to end. This book hits all the right notes with connection of character, believable story arc, and such a well rounded well done book.  I like angsty emotional reads and this one is just that.  There is plenty of hot sex in here, but for me the draw was the characters themselves. Finding their layers, peeling them back and seeing the wonderful men they are underneath all their armor.   This book will stay with me for a very long time, when I want to believe in true love this is the book I will pull out to read.
