Memphis Black RELEASE DAY.

*** From USA Today Bestselling author MJ Fields***
Memphis Title trans (1)
From bedroom performances to center stage, Memphis Black’s dreams have come true. Together with his band mates—Finn, River, and Billy B—he takes some time for fun in the sun in Miami while gathering inspiration to finish their first full-length album. Some down time before hitting the road to tour the country, spreading their kind of rock like an STD. Tallia Priest, a preacher’s daughter grew up next door to Madison Black, her polar opposite and very best friend. Tallia has harbored a crush on Madison’s older brother Memphis for a lifetime. A boy like him would never notice a girl like her, yet he did … once. After a tough freshman year of college, Madison invites Tallia to join her in Miami for a much needed break. Madison fails to mention they will be staying with ‘Steel Total Destruction.’ When Tallia arrives, there is no way for a stunned Memphis to miss the transformation of the once awkward, innocent girl next door. Forbidden desires must be hidden, lines cannot be blurred, and no one can ever know. Will the heat in Miami tempt them even further? Will buried secrets destroy lives? Can a broken heart ever be mended? It’s all fun and games until someone gets rocked. ebook cover

Note from the author...STD Warning
What you will get....
Humor....
  I look in the mirror one last time, noticing my hair is longer on top than it is on the sides. The gel I use to style it makes it look messy and black instead of dark brown. With my black boots, I stand at six-foot-three, and having spent an hour at the gym every night after school, I finally have great definition. I’m stage ready. I walk out on stage with my guitar strung around my neck, pick in hand, waiting for the nerves to consume me. But they don’t. Why? Because I’m a damn legend; that’s why. The stadium is sold out, and the crowd is going wild. “Hello, New Jersey!” I hold the mic out for the crowd’s roar, and they give me exactly what I want. “I am Memphis Black, lead singer and guitarist extraordinaire for—” Fuck, I hate this part. What the hell is the band’s name? “Black Hawks,” my sister Madison whispers. “The Black Hawks!” I yell to the crowd. “That name is so lame.” I hear my sister’s friend Tally giggle. “You two, out.” “No, you said, if we videotaped this, you would—” “Out!” “Come on, it’s our first dance. We need to learn how!” Madison stomps her foot. “Well, you didn’t hold up your end of the deal, now did you?” I lift the guitar strap over my head. “Come on, please,” Madison says with huge eyes. “Yeah, please,” Tally joins her. I consider telling them to fuck off, but they would tell Mom. I consider a simple no, but they’d tell her that, too. Therefore, I choose the safest answer. “Fine. But you both have to shut the hell up.” Tally covers her mouth, looking horrified. The girl is a train wreck in epic, adolescent proportion. She has kinky brown curls and a ribbon always wrapped around her head. Freckles bridge her nose and dot her face, and she always wears cartoon character T-shirts. Today, it’s Care Bears. “What now, Tales?” I huff. “You said—” “Hell?” I laugh. She giggles again. “Yeah, you did.” “You know what? I think the both of you should just stay home. All freshman girls do at a dance is stand in a corner, giggle, and look like dweebs.” I look at my sister. “Mads, if a boy asks you to dance, you’ll start laughing and snorting.” Next, I point at her friend. “Tall, you’ll get some big-ass grin.” I roll my eyes when she covers her mouth again. The little girl can’t handle a curse word to save her life. “Just keep smiling and laughing, and they’ll think there’s something wrong up in those crazy heads of yours. Besides, you’re both in that—I don’t know—the awkward stage: braces, boobs just budding …” Tally covers her mouth again, while Madison starts to get really pissed off. “I mean, look at that hair. Mads, you’re so used to wearing a ball cap you have permanent hat head. And you—” I can’t resist taking one more shot at Tally—“how the hell are you gonna get a comb through that kinky mess before Saturday?” That’s when Madison finally screams for Mom. Tally just looks at me like that cat from the cartoon, the one with the big, green guy. Shrek? Yeah, Shrek. Puss, Puss in Boots. That’s what her face looks like. Looking back at her, I almost feel kind of bad for giving them a hard time. Mom comes in then and gives me the third degree. She tells me, “Girls are sensitive when they’re going through changes,” and that I should ‘be more thoughtful.’ Finally, I can’t take it anymore. “Okay, Mom, fine. I will buy into their little girl fantasies about that girl with the blue dress, the one with the mice that turn into horses—” “Cinderella.” In spite of herself, my mom laughs. “Yeah, her.” Her face goes from amused to suspicious. “What exactly are they doing in your room, anyway?” “They were supposed to be taping my performance.” I try not to smile as she gives me that look. I know exactly what she’s about to say: that my rock star fantasies are just as lame as some dumb fairytale with talking mice. “It’s not the same thing, Mom. This is my dream, something I can actually make into a career one day.” “I know, Memphis.” She pats my back, smiling. “But maybe their dream is to dance.”   Some more.....   “Damn, check out that little peach,” River says when he meets up with us, running his hands back and forth through his hair, ridding it of some of the Atlantic. He points to a chick laid out on a beach towel, all oiled up, top already undone, and she is turning around to lie on her back. “Oh, fuck no.” I almost laugh as we get past her, heading for the volleyball net. “Sascrotch,” Finn mumbles under his breath. We all bust up laughing. “She’s hot and all, but who the fuck doesn’t look in the mirror and see they need a fucking trim before—” “That’s more than a trim, man; that would require a bush hog,” I laugh. “She’s a moped,” River chimes in. “I’d ride the hell out of her for fun, but I sure as fuck wouldn’t want any one of you to see me on her.” “Hair grows there for a reason,” Billy says. “So does facial hair, man, but you trim that shit so you don’t look like a mountain man.”
Heart
  “One day, your father caught me watching you and said, ‘Do you know what happens to sinners, young man?’ I told him no, I didn’t. I was a kid! He looks at me and says, ‘They burn in hell.’ “I fucking laughed in his face. Hell, he preached God’s love and was pegging me at ten years old as a sinner. He didn’t think that shit was funny. I wasn’t thinking about banging you back then, Tales. I was fucking ten. “He told me, ‘If you have sexual desires for her, you best get down on your knees and pray, young man.’” Memphis shakes his head. “I had no clue what he was talking about. Sex was far from my mind. I was into Legos or some other shit my old man bought, promising he’d spend time doing it with me and then bailing."
And... HEAT
“You looking for a fight? ’Cause you’ve got one,” Ricky snaps. Finn steps between them. “Walk, man, while you can.” Memphis looks at me. “If we’re gonna be playing around for the next couple of days, it’s one on one, you feel me?” “I was just dancing.” I blush and look to see if Mads is watching this. She’s not; she’s dancing with River and Billy. “That wasn’t dancing, Tallia. That was fucking foreplay,” he says, stepping into my space as “Teacher” by Nick Jonas starts. He then takes my hands and puts them on his hips. “Your little hands go here, not on his, feel me?” I nod as he places his hands over mine and drags them up under his shirt as his hips start swaying to the music. As Nick’s voice booms “Oh my, oh my, oh my God” over the speakers, Memphis’s hips circle while he moves down slowly until he is hip level with my hands on his shoulders. I close my eyes and start swaying as his hands run up the back of my thighs and stop right below my butt. Then he lifts the hem of my tank top with his nose and runs it across my stomach before I feel his tongue against my skin. My knees weaken, and I clutch his incredibly strong shoulders while he continues to lick, kiss, and graze his teeth across my now exposed flesh. He senses it and places a kiss on my hip as he slowly kisses up my side and then turns me so my back is against his body. He takes my hands in his and runs them up my body as he sings, “So let me teach ya,” in my ear, sending chills all over my body. My hands now rub up my front and over my chest, and he groans in my ear. “So let me teach ya,” he sings again, my hands now behind his neck. “Hold tight; don’t let go,” he commands against my neck. “Rock with me.”
He sways, and I follow his lead as his hands grip my hips and pull me toward his hard body. And his body is hard everywhere.

I am in love with the Severed MC extended family. The men and the women are bada$$, funny, and fierce. I would so enjoy hanging with the women on 'Girl's Night', I'm sure I would learn some tasty 'dessert' recipes. The friendship ties are strong, withstanding loss after loss, and remaining strong. The suspense will keep you guessing, cussing, sweating, and gasping. ~ iScream

Blog Tour: His Enemy's Son by Iyana Jenna


Blog Tour:
His Enemy's Son
by
Iyana Jenna
Aug 24th - Aug 31st









Luke Garrett, a young oil mogul, can't get his business counterpart to return his calls after a deal goes bad. After making every effort to contact the man, Luke decides to kidnap his former partner's son, Alex, to gain the man's attention to their shared problem.

Alex Parker is celebrating his eighteenth birthday by getting drunk with his best friend--and studiously avoiding the debutantes his father tries to throw Alex's way. His night of revelry is cut short when he finds himself a houseguest of a rather unconventional abductor.

Even though he's angry and scared, Alex is drawn to Luke, whose plan falls apart when his attraction to Alex generates a change of heart. Luke can't do anything else but turn himself in to the police, much to Alex's dismay. Alex doesn't want to lose his chance at something great before it even begins.


















Excerpt
“Happy Birthday to me.” Alex Parker knocked back his beer, already the fifth that afternoon, and squinted at his friend across the table. “What?” he asked as he raised his chin defiantly.
Seth shrugged. “Nothing,” he said, eyeing his friend as he drank his soda.
“Then stop acting like a jerk for once. I’m eighteen now and I want to celebrate my way.”
“Psst. Your fake ID told the bouncer you were twenty-one. You want him to throw you out now? Anyway, you seem to forget your mom’s throwing a birthday bash for you at home. A birthday bash that lacks the birthday boy.”
“If by bash you mean a fancy dinner with my dad’s business counterparts, their wives, and daughters? I’ll pass.”
Seth hummed. “Their daughters, huh? Whew. I can’t stand their whining voices and bossy behavior but they must be great in bed.”
Alex made a face and took another gulp from his bottle. “I feel like cattle paraded around to the highest bidder. I wouldn’t mind if it were their sons, but my dad would have a heart attack if he found out about me.”
“Do you plan on telling him?”
“Hell, no! Do you think he could handle it? I can see him reading the headlines now: Alex Parker, Heir of Parker Oil Company, Caught Fucking a Guy.”
Seth let out a belly laugh. “I can imagine your dad’s face. Hey”–he leaned forward– “but have you done that–you know–with a guy?”
Alex’s face felt warm and it was not because of the beer.
“Uh, no,” he said in something close to a whisper. “I mean, I’ve seen pictures and videos; they looked fantastic. The guys are so hot; I get hot just looking at them, their hard chests, peaked nipples asking to be tweaked…” Alex began to daydream.
“Uh, Alex, I feel like puking here.”
“Shut up.” Alex laughed. “You just don’t know, dude.”
“I’d rather not, I guess. Much prefer those soft mounds myself–”
“Okay, point taken.” Alex cut him off. “What I mean is those guys have everything and I mean everything. They’d just point at me laughing their asses off if they so much as looked at me.”
“Now wait a minute,” Seth said. “You’re saying–”
Alex sighed. “Yeah, just look at me. I’m just this tall, lanky kid. No one would want to be with me, especially those hunky dudes.”
“Stop it. Just stop it.” Seth squeezed his forearm so tightly that Alex yelped.
“Seth, you’re hurting me!” he cried out.
Seth released him. “Sorry. But you should quit with the self-pity act. Have you looked in the mirror lately? If I were into dudes, I’d have hit on you the first time we met. Those long curly eyelashes, pouty lips that always look wet–I bet every girl and gay man want to taste them.”
Alex sat leaning forward, propping his chin on his hand.
“You really think so?” He smiled then shook his head. “Wait, what? You said you weren’t interested yet you noticed all those things?” Alex chuckled.
“Shut up.” Seth’s face reddened. He shoved Alex’s bottle into his hand. “Go ahead, drink more. By morning you won’t remember our discussion.”
Alex complied and finished his drink before he signaled a waitress for more beer.
Seth frowned at him.
“I wasn’t serious about more drinks, you know.”
Alex pointed at him with his newly acquired bottle.
“Stop it, all right? And you’re driving.”
“As if that wasn’t obvious two hours ago,” Seth muttered into his glass and took a sip.
* * * *
Night slipped away, and Alex couldn’t lift his head off the table. He felt Seth tug at him and he waved his hand off, but his head was too heavy. He didn’t fight when Seth pulled him up and propped him on his shoulder.
“We’re going home now.” Alex heard Seth’s words amidst his huffing breaths.
“No, not going home,” he slurred.
“Uh-huh,” Seth said. “Your mom’s been calling you all night.”
Alex didn’t answer. He didn’t want to answer; didn’t have the energy to. He let Seth lead them through the throngs of people in the pub. Sharp scents of sweat, alcohol, and something Alex wouldn’t think about invaded his nostrils and made his stomach roll. He pressed himself into the side of Seth’s body. He was grateful to have Seth with him. Honestly, Alex wouldn’t mind being Seth’s boyfriend if his friend wanted to change his mind about his sexual orientation.
Outside, a fresh breeze caressed his face and Alex took a deep breath. The wind helped cool down his hot head and he became aware of his surroundings. He pushed Seth away and his friend turned to him.
“What is it? Are you okay?”
“Yeah.” Alex nodded, squeezed his eyes shut, and took a deep breath as his head swam with the slight movement. “Uh, no, I don’t think so.”
Seth snorted.
The bastard.
“Come on.” Seth pulled Alex close, and he went with him without complaint. He staggered next to Seth and almost plunged down face first when Seth suddenly stopped in his tracks.
“Seth, what the hell–”
Alex tried to focus as he saw a group of men in dark suits walk toward him and Seth and begin to slowly circle them. Men in Black? He giggled.
“Alex, who are they?” Seth hissed in his ear.
Alex arched an eyebrow. Seth’s kidding, right? Alex was the one heavily drunk. Wasn’t he supposed to be the one asking the question?
“It’s okay, Mr. Chandler. We’ll take it from here.”
Alex’s eyebrows shot up to reach his hairline as one of the men spoke to Seth.
“What? How do you know my name?” Seth squeaked.
“Just relax. Alex’s father sent us to pick him up. He’s been worried.”
Alex laughed. Since when did his father worry about him? He only cared when he thought Alex was going to do something to disgrace the family. Come to think of it, maybe this time he would.
“You work for my father?” Alex asked. God, his head was throbbing. “Why haven’t I seen you before?”
“Alex, let’s get the hell out of here,” Seth begged beside him.
“You haven’t seen us, Alex, but we’ve seen you.” The man laughed but it didn’t reach his eyes. “It’s what we do; keep an eye on you and your family.”
Alex swayed in Seth’s hands, holding onto him tightly.
“I don’t like this, Alex.”
“Neither do I. Let’s go.”
Another man in black rushed forward and grabbed Alex, wrenching him away from Seth.
“Hey!” they cried out.
“I’m going home with my friend. Let me go!” Alex shouted.
It was no use. Men in black surrounded him from every angle. He couldn’t see Seth anywhere.







I’m Iyana Jenna and you can call me Iyana. I like writing, romance, and man love so as you can see on this site, you’re mostly going to find m/m stories whether they are for adults or young adults. They are not going to be too heavy on explicit sex, though, as many say that my stories are considered sweet romance.

November 29, 2012, was the date that I will never forget. That was the time when I got my first acceptance email from a publisher where I sent my first story to be published. I almost couldn’t believe my eyes and I think I cried a little. :)

When I don’t write, I teach English to children, teens, and adults. I also work in the curriculum and materials department in an institution. Among my responsibilities are writing books and tests.

I love watching, listening to music, and, of course, reading. I like chocolate, cheese, strawberry, anything that is good. If you want to know more about me, come and have a chat.

Synopsis:
Our little family has been together for four years, and life has been good, considering my track record. But In the blink of an eye, my ease was suddenly gone when I heard his terrifying words. I knew from the look on Tango’s face and the way he avoided my gaze—all hell was about to break loose. Now it seems like the dangers I spent years desperately avoiding are starting to threaten my happily ever after.


Maybe it’s because I let my guard down. Or maybe it’s because I was starting to trust again. But I can’t even trust the people closest to me, and now I remember why.
Screw with me, that’s one thing. Screw with my family, and we’ve got a problem…

Excerpt:


PROLOGUE
CALI


I know this man well enough to know when something's up. He doesn't skip a meal. He generally refuses to miss bedtime stories with our daughter, and he never leaves the house without a word.
Unless something is wrong.
Something's wrong.
I poke my head into the garage and squeeze through the dozens of boxes near the doorway. I hear grunting, heavy breathing and the sound of metal clinking against metal—I can smell the sweat from here.
I make my way out of the boxes, lean against a pillar and fold my arms over my chest in hopes of an explanation. An excuse. Anything.  
The weights thud against the cement and Tango reaches across the bench for his rag, which he drags across his forehead, slowly, purposely avoiding my cold stare. "Is Tyler already asleep?" he asks before removing the rag from his eyes.
"After four books and counting two-hundred sheep, yes, she's asleep." I move in closer, arching a brow, giving him the look I know he's trying desperately to ignore. "What is it?"
He drops the rag and repositions his weights against the wall, lining them up meticulously, giving himself a little more time to answer my simple question. "Just working out, baby."
"Don't baby me. You only pump hundreds when something’s up."
He takes a couple of deep breaths and looks at me with his shamrock green eyes, giving me the Bambi stare, as if I'm going to melt from his loving gaze. It usually works, but I weakened to be strong tonight. Something is wrong. I know it. "There's nothing to worry about." He cups his hand around my cheek, lifting my chin to look at him. "Remember, I’ll tell you if there's something to worry about."
The last time he said that to me, a scientist who held him hostage for almost a year showed up at one of his jobs and, without warning, made him leave the country for a week. I got a text message from him telling me not to worry. Then his phone was shut off. All I knew was that my husband didn't come home from work that day, and our little girl cried for him at bedtime every night for a week. He reminds me constantly that he signed a deal with the devil, but it was so he didn't have to live with him. I get it in theory, but God, why does there have to be such a high price for breathing?
"Just tell me if you're going to disappear again. Because I swear to God, Tango, if that happens again, I'll go looking for you."
He takes my hand, the hand I'm trying to keep from shaking, and lays it on his heart as he pulls me into him. "If I disappear, you're coming with me."

Then my mom passed away, and my sister was murdered. I turned my solitude to strength because the alternative was too bleak.


But my luck seemed to turn: I met Tango. And while I want him more than I’ve ever wanted anything in my twenty-two years, danger lurks around every corner and I simply can’t take the chance of it finding me. But his tattoos, his smell, his darkness, and his body— that marine has taken over my every thought. But, what if he too isn’t what I think? A ticking time bomb isn’t going to leave me much time to waver. Even the bravest person can be in need of a miracle.


Before she was gone, my mom warned me to know everyone and trust no one. But what was I supposed to do when I found out I am the one not to be trusted? Turns out, I was always the bait in this conspiracy.


In author Shari J. Ryan’s gripping novel, TAG, the canyons hold secrets, the waterfalls provide safety, and romance has a pesky way of showing up when you are sweaty and dirty and least expect it.

Praying for Time


What if a single secret shared between friends could destroy everything?

Russell Willis adores Jake Timmons and while their relationship has its ups and downs, they are happy, healthy and living life the way they’ve always dreamed. A well-respected architect, Russell has plans for the future, which include marriage, but in a single moment, his visions are shattered—Jake is gravely ill. 

While Jake has always kept his emotions and details about his past locked away, the diagnosis shuts him down into a world of denial, a refusal to face reality. Unsure of what to do, Russell allows him space until he’s certain his lover is having an affair. Angry and confused, he flees, seeking solace, answers and possibly retribution. 

Kyle Bass knows about tragedy. His long-time lover was taken in a drunken driving accident, he’s barely on the healing track, and guilt has changed him forever. When he finds out about Jake’s condition, he offers to help, no matter what he’s asked to do. The request rattles his world. Determined to keep the secret, Kyle is led down an emotional trail until he’s unable to cope. As the scheme turns ugly and he’s accused of betrayal, he struggles with his personal demons. 

Unfortunately Jake’s health takes a serious turn for the worse. In his quest to bring Russell home, Kyle is forced to face the truth about undying love. Secrets endured from their respective pasts take a damning toll and yet one hidden treasure remains—an unexpected light in a bleak time, but would the two haunted men grasp onto the only thing able to save them? Sadly, as their respective worlds unravel, they are all praying for time.

Blurb

THE BAD BOY: I’m Johnny. An ex-con with a bad attitude and a controlling demeanor that somehow made the women flock to my bed but never my heart. It was unavailable for possession.

THE TEMPTATION: She was just supposed to be a two day hookup. But one taste of her and I knew I was in danger of never getting enough. She has her own demons to contend with, and dealing with my own was hard enough. I won’t allow temptation to take control of me.


THE SENTENCE: I'd given myself a life sentence a long time ago, and she made me want things I wouldn't allow myself to have. Giving into it just might destroy us both.
