Waiting On Wednesday (549) Crankshaft (Big Bull Mechanics #1) K.M. Neuhold

Expected publication June 3, 2022
Genre: M/M, Romance


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings
that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
(WoW was previously hosted by Breaking The Spine.)

This my favorite day of the week because I love sharing and discovering new books.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

I don’t have time for a relationship, not even with the adorably dorky vet I can’t seem to stop bumping into…

Between running a garage full of beefed up, gear head mechanics and bailing my idiot brother out of trouble every other week, the last thing I have time for is a relationship.

I’ve tried it too many times, and the ridiculous reasons I always find to end it have become a running joke around the garage. But I’ve learned my lesson. No. More. Boyfriends.

I don’t care how many times Porter falls asleep drunk in my bed or how cute he looks covered in oil smears while I teach him how to fix up the vintage car he has rusting away in his garage, I’m not going to fall for him.

Even if I did, what do a mechanic and a veterinarian have in common anyway?


This is a spin off of this author's Four Bears Construction Series, which I enjoyed reading. Let's hope I like this new series just as much.

Jem Dawson defines the word temporary. A talented cameraman, he’s here today and will undoubtedly be gone tomorrow chasing adventure and danger. But, while he’s in York, he’s made it clear he wants Will, and Will can’t help liking the charming daredevil.

This inconvenient attraction results in Will accompanying Jem to the site of a notorious poltergeist outbreak. A malevolent spirit has targeted a family, and now the ghost hunting team for whom Jem does camerawork are going to be locked down in the house for three days.

The house is strange and filled with sinister and violent undercurrents. One by one, the group experiences threatening incidents, and as events escalate, Will has to ask himself if he's risking not just his heart but also his life with this impulsive gesture.

This is the first book in the Arcana Books series featuring characters from the bestselling Black and Blue series.


I really want to read this because... Ghosties!!! Or rather, more ghosties, as this is a spin off from another ghost series. So yay for more ghosts!!

Waiting On Wednesday (547) Hitched (Licking Thicket: Horn of Glory #2) by Lucy Lennox and May Archer

Expected publication: June 1, 2022
Genre: M/M, Romance


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings
that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
(WoW was previously hosted by Breaking The Spine.)

This my favorite day of the week because I love sharing and discovering new books.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Former Marine Percy “Champ” Champion has never encountered a problem he can’t handle. Flying bullets? Daring jungle rescues? Building Champion Security from the ground up? Making people seriously regret using his hated first name? No problem. He’s gotten the job done without a hitch each and every time.

But it turns out there are some situations Champ can’t handle alone, like:

• Going undercover as a wedding planner to retrieve some missing cartel data in time to avert an international crisis.

• Keeping his jerk of an ex from threatening his business.

• Preventing Quinn Taffet, Licking Thicket’s gorgeous, charming new wedding planner—and Champ’s fake fiancĂ©—from getting into danger… or from getting the wrong idea about their relationship.

• Fighting the pull that lands him in Quinn’s bed night after night, despite his very best intentions.

• Stopping the pun-happy matchmakers of the Thicket from destroying the sane, well-ordered life he’s built for himself.

• And, most troubling of all, protecting his traitorous heart from all the romance in the air.

In short, Champ needs an extraction plan ASAP before he finds himself well and truly… hitched.


Just like last week, this is another series that I don't know why I continue reading. Well, that's harsh. I did enjoy the original Licking Thicket series, so I guess I'm trying too hard to make this series something it's not. I also like these authors separately, but together they can write OTT characters and situations. Whatever. I'll still be reading this one.

Waiting On Wednesday (546) Kiss Marry Kill (Dr. Maxwell Thornton Murder Mysteries #6) by S.C. Wynne

Expected publication: May 30, 2022
Genre: M/M, Romance


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings
that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
(WoW was previously hosted by Breaking The Spine.)

This my favorite day of the week because I love sharing and discovering new books.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

River Martin has begun to reveal his true motives for being in Rainy Dale, and, shocker, it’s not good news for Maxwell Thornton.

If Maxwell is going to go to war with River, he’ll need people on his side. In his quest to be more of a 'people person', he’s roped into attending the wedding of one of his young patients, Janelle Raiden.

The bride is stunning in white silk tulle. The groom is appropriately doting. The cake is pure buttercream decadence. Everything about the wedding seems so very, very perfect.

Until the groom’s dead ex-wife makes an appearance.


I am finding it hard to say just what it is about this series that keeps me reading. It's not the greatest thing ever - but I do like the main characters, for the most part. It's a cozy M/M murder mystery romance... and I think it's trying to be so many things that it just falls short. And the writing is just okay... And I guess I'm okay with that (????) because I keep picking up the next book. I don't know!

Waiting On Wednesday (545) Dark Souls (Kildevil Cove Murder Mystery #4) by J.S. Cook

Synopsis from Goodreads:

There’s trouble brewing in the cold waters of Kildevil Cove, and this time Danny Quirke may be hard put to stop it.

Due to his suspected association with his former boss’s human trafficking organization, Danny has been demoted and is no longer in charge. To make matters worse, he’s broken up with his partner, Tadhg... who may be in serious hot water himself. But then a faceless killer begins targeting Kildevil Cove’s most vulnerable, and Danny can’t refuse when his new boss asks him to take the case.

When Danny pulls a hypothermic young woman out of a small boat in the middle of a blizzard, she whispers a cryptic phrase about a man with no face. But who is he? What is his connection to the murders? And how is Danny going to solve the mystery while he’s the subject of an investigation that could end his career?


WHY did I allow myself to get so far behind on this series?? I really enjoyed reading the first book, but hesitated before reading the second book. Then, I was caught off guard when the third book came out. Not prepared to catch myself up to date, I put it off. NOW book four is out and I have no reason not to pick up with this series again. I don't know why I do this to myself when I'm dying to know what happens!!

Waiting On Wednesday (544) Hand Picked (Sunday Brothers #2) by May Archer

Published: April 11, 2022
Genre: M/M, Romance


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings
that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
(WoW was previously hosted by Breaking The Spine.)

This my favorite day of the week because I love sharing and discovering new books.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

Once upon a time, I moved to Vermont… and wound up accidentally sort of married.

Webb Sunday is the straight single dad next door.

He’s lumberjack-gorgeous, strong and steady as the trees in his family orchard, a grumpy fairytale prince...

And entirely off-limits.

Or so I thought.

Until the drunken night the two of us walked into a bar… and landed ourselves in the middle of small-town history.

Who knew hand-fasting was still a thing?

The town of Little Pippin Hollow did.

And once this bunch of meddling Vermonters gets wind of our accidental betrothal, they are determined to see us seal the deal.

But while the chemistry between us is hot enough to melt the winter cold, Webb isn’t interested in a relationship… and I’m not sure how long I can keep pretending I don’t want our hand-fasting to be real.

Because while the man might not be the happily ever after I came to Vermont for… he’s looking more and more like the one who’s been hand-picked for me.


I had this on my schedule for a May release date, but here it is out already. I don't know. Anywho, I already read it and I loved it! It was cute and sweet and had just the right amount of apple filled romance and small town busy body shenanigans. I can't wait for the next book!

Waiting On Wednesday (543) Real Risk (West Coast Forensics #3) by Elle Keaton

Expected publication: April 21, 2022
Genre: M/M, Romance


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings
that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
(WoW was previously hosted by Breaking The Spine.)

This my favorite day of the week because I love sharing and discovering new books.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

It's possible they're a match, but first the two men will have to survive trial by fire.

Chief Devon Flynn is fighting smoke and flames, tirelessly protecting the lives and property of his fellow islanders from yet another spate of fires.

Arson or accident?

When injury puts him on the sidelines, West Coast Forensics Arson Investigator Kimball Frye offers his assistance. Frye is The Most Irritating Man in the World, a condescending know-it-all who rubs Devon the wrong way.

Or does he?

Decades ago an arsonist stole his family from him. Since then, Frye has devoted his life to putting them behind bars.

Is the arsonist trying to shift the blame onto Devon, or trying to kill him? If it's the latter it just might work.

Feeling the pull of attraction to Devon as the firebug grows bolder is inconvenient. Will Kimball listen to his heart or his head?


I've enjoyed reading this series so far. I especially like the setting, which is the same locale as her Veiled Intentions series. So there is some character cross over happening within this series.

Waiting On Wednesday (542) Flare (Style #1) by Jay Hogan

Expected publication: April 21, 2022
Genre: M/M, Romance


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings
that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly anticipating.
(WoW was previously hosted by Breaking The Spine.)

This my favorite day of the week because I love sharing and discovering new books.

Synopsis from Goodreads:

My own fashion label. The shiny new sign above the door means everything. My dream. My life. Worth every gruelling hour I’ve spent making it happen. Nothing can stop me now. Not the fear. Not the nightmares. Not my sad excuse for a love life. And certainly not Beckett Northcott, the sexy English professor who wouldn’t know a fitted shirt if it slapped him in the face and who has flannel down to an art form.

I don’t date for a very good reason, and yet Beck makes me want to break every damn one of my rules. But with my debut at Fashion Week looming, my business in trouble, and Beckett Northcott peeling open my terrified heart to a future I’ve never imagined, the threads of my carefully woven life are unravelling at the seams.

I could walk away. Or I could take a chance that Beck and I might just have what it takes to fashion a new life, together. A fresh design from a new cloth.


I've read a few books by this author recently and enjoyed them, so I thought I'd give this new series a spin. I also really like the New Zealand setting in her books.
