Excerpt:

“Officer?” McNeil's reaction to having a gun drawn on him put Maddox on even higher alert. McNeil didn't look freaked out. He looked calculating, like all the possibilities of what might happen next were flowing into his head and he was sorting leisurely through them.

“Hands up where I can see them. Now.” He followed procedure to get an armed perp out of a car, then pushed him face down over the hood so that McNeil's hands were visible and far away from the outline of that gun. He yanked up McNeil's shirt and removed the piece.

“You got anything else on you?”

“No, sir.”

“You got a permit for that?”

His suspect hesitated. Maddox expected some long-ass story about how he had a permit only it was at his uncle's cousin's baby mama's condo which was being foreclosed on and . . .

“No.”

No. No excuses, just no.

“No, sir,” McNeil added, but Maddox had the sense that the word sir had nothing to do respect for his badge. There was a different kind of respect in his voice.

“Hands behind your back.” Maddox didn't think he'd ever had a perp put his hands behind his back so willingly before. He hadn't made it much past the word hands before they were there, crossed over each other, palms turned up to him, waiting.

Fuck. That was—

He snapped the cuffs over McNeil's wrists, then holstered his gun and stepped closer. He kicked McNeil's feet apart without asking him to spread them himself, just got in there between his legs and forced them open wider, then tugged on his hips to move them away from the car so that McNeil's ass jutted out and up.

That was— Fuck.

He started patting McNeil down, trying not to enjoy it as much as he was enjoying it. He should have called for backup by now. This was a man driving around town with an unpermitted gun strapped to his back. This was not one of his toys.

He didn't call for backup.

Love this short but HOT story! Great storyline that is fast paced but flows smoothly. Maddox and Jack are great characters with chemistry that sizzles right off the pages. I really like how Jack is such a strong, in control guy in his everyday life but then gives over control and submits to Maddox in the bedroom. Maddox is great at reading Jack and knowing just what he needs. They have a great combo of BDSM but also loving at times when they are together. Would love to read more about these characters.

This book was hot, hot, hot. I wish it was longer. I loved Jack and Maddox. I loved that Jack was a take control kind of guy by day, but needed to submit by night. And Jack was the perfect man to do that. I'm glad that their issues were solved and they decided to make a go of a relationship. Thanks Tanya Chris for the little extra read on your website. I loved it. Great read. It is a short story, but you won't be disappointed.

C Lloyd on Amazon wrote:

DEEP UNDER is a quick BDSM M/M that is steamy and has one of my favorite first kisses EVER. When the story first started, I was wary of the power dynamics that would come with the Dom being a cop, but Maddox is suuuuuuch a good guy!!! I love him to pieces. Jack is so great too, and they're both very wonderful together.

Excerpt:

The man in the seat next to Will shifted again. He was a big man, as far as Will could see without looking directly at him. Broad and wide and crackling with masculine restlessness. They were all so jammed together in the plastic-molded airport seating that even Will felt constricted, and Will wasn’t a big man. Average. He never thought of himself as anything other than average in any way. Well, except—

The man jerked his arm, nearly elbowing Will with it. Will tried to pretend he hadn’t noticed. He was much more aware of this stranger dressed in a button-down shirt and slacks, one leg crossed over the other so that the sole of his loafer nearly grazed Will’s leg, the knot of his tie still tight against his neck, than he ought to be. And yeah, apparently Will had been sneaking some peeks at him regardless of his determination not to because he had the man’s entire outfit memorized. Only his face remained a mystery.

READ MORE

If Will were going to imagine a face, and that was hardly a wise thing to do but this waiting was endless, he would imagine features as hard as the stranger’s thighs and hair as dark as the leather of his shoes. And the eyes would be ... Will closed his own eyes and finished building his dream man’s face ... green—that bright emerald green that went so perfectly with thick, black hair, a green like the color swirled through the man’s tie. As though a man like that might pick out a tie to match his eyes.

“Excuse me.”

Will’s eyes flew open, his body instinctively moving away from the potential threat. What had he done? Was his dick hard? Had he accidentally made contact? Could this guy read minds?

“Wow, sorry. Didn’t mean to startle you. Were you asleep?”

Bright green eyes met Will’s with polite concern. This was ... fuck. Had Will conjured him? The strong jaw, faintly traced with stubble, the swath of hair so brown it was almost black, worn just a little too long so that it curled at the tips, the classic Roman nose above a wide mouth that was fuller and softer than Will had imagined but only the more appealing for being so—he was too much a fantasy to be real.

Reviews:Cara on Amazon wrote:

I loved, loved, loved both characters. Both Adam and Will felt like real people who I cared about and became invested in. Not just romance-book real, but like actual people in a realistic situation and a relationship that wasn't story-book perfect, but was all the better for it.

Jennifer Naylor on Amazon wrote:

FAVORITE!! No lie. Straight to the top of that list right now for 2018. I am head over heels in love with this book. Every single thing about it was perfection to me. Everything. The only thing I didn’t like about it is that it had to end. I feel lost and sad right now. I want to still be reading it.

Kitten on Amazon wrote:

Initially I thought the book would be good (I was right), but I didn’t expect some of the topics that came up. Among those themes were gender stereotypes, cultural hang-ups, and societal expectations. About halfway through, I realized the story was deeper than I expected. I found myself binge-reading this book by itself (I usually read several at once), and of course I crushed on both Adam and Will


Don't miss the bonus epilogues:

Fully Integrated

Will just signed his first publishing contract, which means celebratory blowjobs. It’s a day for feeling lucky, even as he worries about what’s going on in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria.

Detour

When social distancing rules mandate that Adam work from home, Will imagines there’s going to be a lot of canoodling. Instead, there are a lot of teleconferences. But tonight, Will’s determined to make sure Adam logs off and gets off.

Better Off

Cover for Better Off by Tanya Chris shows a man and a suit and a man with long hair holding a flower in front of a bookshelf

Only one thing stands in the way of millionaire Gregory MacPherson’s project to revitalize the gritty neighborhood of Ball’s End: a run-down used bookstore. Since none of Mac’s employees seem to be able to get Hailey’s Comic out of the building Mac needs to tear down, he decides to take matters into his own hands. He expects to have it all under control, just like he has everything under control. What he doesn't expect is to fall hard and fast for the store’s owner—the colorful, willowy, and unexpectedly male, Hailey.

Hailey refuses to give up his lease, no matter how many incentives Mac dangles in front of him, but when it comes to consummating their mutual attraction, he’s a lot more flexible. Soon Mac is finding it as hard to pry himself out of Hailey’s bed as it is to pry Hailey out of the building. With time winding down and no other options, he does the unthinkable.

Mac is trying to improve Ball’s End. Hailey thinks it’s Mac who could stand to be improved. But with a few compromises, they might all end up Better Off.

Note: this book was originally published under the title Him Improvement. No significant changes have been made.

Excerpt:

“You know what I like about you?” Hailey asked.

Mac straightened up with a shake of his head. He knew what people usually liked about him. He was a handsome man with strong features and thick hair. He came from money, had turned that into more money of his own, had the manners and confidence to comport himself anywhere. He made decisions quickly but logically, took action when others froze, and played a good game of hockey. But he expected to hear something different from Hailey—maybe that he had a bright aura or had been some form of cuddly animal in a previous life.

“Your shoulders. I’m a sucker for a guy with good posture. You had that suit on in the store, but I could still tell. Is that not okay to say?”

“I was expecting something more… well, less superficial.” He’d wanted Hailey to see something in him, something he maybe hadn’t even known was there himself, a goodness of some kind.

READ MORE

“Like that you have a beautiful soul? We all do, don’t we? Your beautiful soul happens to be topped by an impressive pair of shoulders. But all right, I’ll tell you what I meant to say before I got distracted by them. I like how transparent you are.”

“I’m not transparent.” He was a consummate businessman, a master of impassivity.

“But you are. Right now you’re vaguely insulted because you think being transparent is a weakness. A moment ago you were disappointed to discover that I’m a human male, not an ethereal saint, and right before that you were thinking about how much you want to fuck me.”

Since that was a pretty good summary of the last three thoughts he’d had, arguing seemed pointless. “Maybe you’re just good at reading me.”

“I don’t see how anyone could miss what you’re thinking. It’s all in your eyes. They’re very expressive. I especially like that how-much-you-want-to-fuck-me look. You never did say whether this was a date.”

Reviews:Sammy on Joyfully Jay wrote:

[This] is not my first Tanya Chris novel, but it is definitely my favorite to date. With just enough friction between what Hailey wanted and what Mac envisioned, coupled with the loveliest emerging romantic entanglement between the two men, this novel was a delight to read from beginning to end.

You, Me & Her

Cover for You, Me & her features a man superimposed over a theater stage
Part of the My Guys series:

Nate wasn’t made to be monogamous, a fact he never fails to disclose to his partners. No matter how much he loves the women he’s with, he sees potential in others. Does that make him a horrible person? His on-again, off-again lover and current co-star, Deb, certainly thinks so.
But his other co-star, Joshua, understands. Joshua, who’s fast becoming the best friend Nate ever had, doesn’t even mind when Nate hooks up with his wife, Sherry. Well, he does mind a little, but only because he has the hots for Nate himself.
Nate’s always known he’s polyamorous, but is he also bi? He loves being with Joshua. He loves being with Sherry. He definitely loves being with Joshua and Sherry together. Can he make the transition from loves-being-with to just-plain-loves? And even if he can, how does he fit into another couple’s relationship?
Meanwhile, the situation with Deb is growing ever more toxic, the future of their show is at stake, and not all of Nate’s friends are on board with the whole poly/bi thing. It’s a minefield Nate can only navigate with the help of one very special man.
Content warning for alcoholism. This book describes an open relationship that remains open after a romantic bond is formed. It’s not suitable for readers who consider open relationships to be cheating. This book includes both M/F and M/M on-page sex.

Amanda’s not loving life in her new home town. Her roommate is a weepy hermit, the rock climbing gym is substandard, and she hasn’t whipped anyone in months.

There’s something special about Amanda, something that’s been calling to Derek ever since he met her, even if he doesn’t understand what it is. He’s yearning to give her everything she needs, until he finds out that what she needs is for him to submit. Derek is strong, smart, and well-adjusted. Why would he get down on his knees for a woman? And why is he just now realizing that that’s what he’s always wanted to do?
Derek may be new to BDSM, but Amanda’s new to relationships. Neither one of them knows whether a Domme with a grudge against the world and a man who’s surprised to learn he’s a submissive can make love work, but they both know what they want: someone to call Mine.
