‘Wicked Heat’ (Where There’s Smoke Series #1) by Sibley Jackson #LGBT #Review @CaddyorPims

Tracy reviews ‘Wicked Heat’ (Where There’s Smoke Series #1) by Sibley Jackson aka Caddy Rowland. Published February 2nd 2015 by Caddy Rowland, 43 pages. 

This book was provided free of charge for an honest review by the author.

Why I read this book: I enjoyed the authors last series of short stories and thought this one looked interesting.



*Note: This short gay romance contains hot gay m/m sex scenes.

Andy isn’t planning on a relationship getting in the way of his career. He needs to prove himself invaluable to his boss, Gordy. Things get messed up the minute Gordy introduces him to his son, Cody, who will be working under Andy for the summer.
At first glance, Andy knows the guy is trouble. Cody is a lethal combination of a pretty face and a very rugged physique. Cody makes him achingly hot, which confuses and angers him. He likes rough-looking men, not pretty boys, even if this particular pretty face comes with a brutally sculpted body. Not only that, the dude is his boss’s son!
Cody, too, feels the same burning desire. It flusters him, as he’s determined to remain in the closet. Cody knows full well being gay won’t be accepted by his family. Besides, Andy is rude and short-tempered from the start. Who needs someone like that in their life?
Regardless, the heat between the two men refuses to die own. It’s going to be a long, hot summer.
A summer neither man will soon forget.
*Book 1 of the Where There’s Smoke Series. Each book is a short story and can stand alone but are best read as a series.




7/10 Pots of Gold
Wicked Heat is the first book in a series of short stories, I would advise reading in order as they will be following the same couple through the struggles to a HFN/HEA.
Andy is gay, he loves a rugged man till his boss introduces him to his son. Cody is very pretty, he tries really hard to not be gay, he can’t be gay, his dad wouldn’t understand gay.
Andy comes across as a total jerk, I am hoping it is just because of the lust he is feeling. I don’t like jerks and feel really sorry for Cody. He is deep in the closet but he seems to know Andy could be the one to break off the door with a huge bang.
It will be interesting to see where the author goes with this one. There are lots of possibilities.
Overall a good start to a new series that has a lot of promise. Looking forward to the next book….

Sibley Jackson is the pen name that author Caddy Rowland uses when writing gay m/m romance. After three years of writing drama, psychological thriller, historical fiction, and family saga Caddy wanted to expand into romance, but preferred writing gay m/m. Since her books have always been GLBT inclusive, some with gay main characters, it was a natural progression.

Although she was familiar with writing gay fiction, writing m/m romance—which is primarily read by females—offered new challenges. Sibley strives to make the characters read like real men, yet she makes sure the romantic thoughts and feelings women love to read about are also there. Additionally, the sex scenes are hot and explicit, tending more toward how two men communicate when having sex, instead of a man with a woman.

Sibley plans on writing at least four books in her first series (The Performance Series). She will then write other gay m/m romance series, hoping to give readers of that genre an exciting and rewarding storyline with male characters who are men, instead of one being simply “a chick with a dick”.
