Silver Oak Medical Center Prequel (Silver Oak Medical Center 0.5)
AUTHOR’S BLURB: A pharmaceutical rep with a sales record that can’t be beat. A chemical dependency counselor who will fight for his patients with the last ounce of strength in him. A tragedy, and a miracle. Can this alpha and this omega overcome their differences to find their way to true love?
Tom Benedetto is a Chemical Dependency Counselor at Silver Oak Medical Center’s Chemical Dependency Unit. When representatives from local pharmaceutical giant, Match, show up at the Unit promising a huge donation that might be the answer to their prayers, Tom is skeptical.
For starters, Match makes six of the opiates most commonly abused in Central New York. Funding a rehab center isn’t exactly in their best interests.
Justin Amadori is Match Pharma’s Vice President of Medical and Institutional Sales. He’s a salesman, but he’s also a true believer when it comes to Match’s mission: a world free from pain. When the tall, slender counselor gets up in front of the whole staff at the Chemical Dependency Unit and pushes back against the gift Match wants to give them, Justin is angry.
He’s also intrigued.
Intrigue leads to a date, and then to another. But when tragedy strikes, can these two overcome their differences in time to save their family?
MY REVIEW: This was okay. It was pretty much just an argument the whole way through. Not really romantic or sweet or even sexy.
Infectious Love (Silver Oak Medical Center #1)
AUTHOR’S BLURB: An omega with a mission. An alpha sworn to serve and protect. And an outbreak that will change both of their lives forever.
Dave Stanek has spent the past decade of his life trying to atone for his family’s sins. While his parents bilked thousands out of their life’s savings and tried to bring him into the family business, Dave has built a successful career in medicine as an infectious disease specialist at Silver Oak Medical Center.
Ken Sykora has seen a lot during his time in the Army and during his years on the force. When someone finds a vial at the scene of a meningitis outbreak, he’s obliged to consult with the Infectious Disease Specialist at Silver Oak Hospital.
When Dave is assigned a meningitis case one evening, he finds himself face to face with the most attractive alpha cop he’s ever seen – and neck-deep in a biological terror case.
Ken shares Dave’s attraction, notwithstanding the doctor’s superiority complex. Despite the gravity of the case they’re working, their mutual desire proves too much to contain. But when a night of pleasure leads to unintended consequences, they’ll have to decide if they can overcome their differences and build a life together – while catching a killer.
Overflowing with passionate, explicit scenes of gay alpha/omega mpreg romance, Infectious Love is a 52,000 words and intended for adult readers only.
MY REVIEW: The story was good. The writing was good. The romance had no heat, seemed barely secondary to the main storyline. The epilogue would have been fine if the author had stopped before introducing the dad into it. That was useless and pointless and truthfully rather mystifying. Overall just a waste of everyone’s time.
Deliver Me (Silver Oak Medical Center #2)
AUTHOR’S BLURB: Torn between passion and profession, what will he choose?
Losing his brother at a young age sets Carter Idoni’s future in motion. Dedicating his life to saving people, Dr. Carter will do anything for his patients.

MY REVIEW: Finn was filled with rage from the beginning, and then confused and raging and then insisted some change of mind he had should have mystically conveyed itself to Carter and pouted when it didn’t.
Carter was Dr. Perfect, of course. Except for a whole list of things you need to read to find about.
Usually, when two people fight and do the enemies to lovers things it feels like there is sexual tension. Not like one guy’s gonna slug the other guy cuz he’s a rage-aholic. And not cuz the other guy acts like an unprofessional brat. This left me cold. I hope the rest of the series is better.

MY REVIEW: A full and dramatic story that will have you angry and perplexed. The title doesn’t seem to sync up with the storyline very well, in my opinion, but that’s minor. The love story is good and believable. I voluntarily reviewed an advance copy of this book.

Harvey was a sweet additional MC, as was Caleb. Though I greatly prefer pets over kids.

MY REVIEW: There’s just the right amount of fear and tension and danger and believability to make this scary. And good. This story was less sexy and romantic than political, though it tried to balance out. It was still a good read.
I read this ARC and this is my honest review.
Rock the Cradle (Silver Oak Medical Center #6)
AUTHOR’S BLURB: A DJ becomes a hero. A doctor weathers a family tragedy. And a thin wall between them…

Enemies become lovers in this highly erotic gay mpreg tale. This 106,000-word book is brimming with explicit man-on-man action, and is intended for adults only.
MY REVIEW: Heartbreaking and aggravating and suspenseful, this is a great read. The one MC makes you hate him pretty much the whole entire time. Even at the end where there’s supposedly a HEA. That part might not have been intentional, but it may have. You don’t always get great people to love you because you deserve them, right?
