Keta Diablo is one of my favorite erotic romance authors and because I enjoyed her erotic historical romances I thought I would try out her new male/male contemporary erotic romance. I’ve never read a male/male romance or an erotic male/male romance so when I got my hands on a copy of Keta Diablo’s Crossroads I was both excited a a bit nervous because it was my first but it won’t be my last. Keta really promoted this book well and I was hooked into reading the novel after first seeing the marvelously and colorfully put together cover. I also read a very intense and intriguing excerpt on Keta’s website that had me wanting to read the novel as soon as possible. Now the main character Frank McGuire is an ex-cop turned private investigator after the death of his police partner Quinn Brennan’s death. Frank is a very intriguing character who I really loved reading about because he is such a big, strong and handsome man who has a special ability to commune with the dead since he was a child. His relationship with his partner Quinn was very special to him because he was a father figure who took Frank under his wing and made him apart of his own family.

Quinn also didn’t judge Frank for being gay and was very accepting of it even up to his death in Frank’s arms in a shooting. Frank put distance between Quinn’s family and himself after the funeral because he thought it would be best. So it was a bit of a surprise to Frank when Quinn’s widow Emily calls him for help in finding her 22-year-old son Rand who hasn’t called or answers any of the messages that her 20-year-old daughter Marlow and her have left him. Frank has had an attraction to Rand since he last saw him at Quinn’s funeral five years ago and even though Frank has tried to suppress that attraction it all changes when he finally find Rand. Frank has searched for him in four different billiard places before finding him at the fifth one, which he meets the bartender who gives him very weird vibes. That is when things get really hot and heavy between Frank and Rand, which really sets off the start of their relationship with one another.

There is also a mysterious serial killer called The Black Rail is on the loose during the novel and Frank is recruited to help the police catch and put the killer away for a long time. Keta Diablo delivers a steamy, hot, sexy and mysterious male/male erotic romance novel that will make want more and for the story to never end. I was sad to have finished this novel in less than 4 hours but I just couldn’t stop reading it until I found out how things would end for Frank and Rand. Now that I’ve read it I hope that Keta will maybe write up another story with Frank and Rand so I can see if their relationship will make it like I so want it to. After reading my first male/male erotic romance I want to read more and look forward to reading any more male/male erotic romance by Keta Diablo and other amazing authors. I give this book 5 open books:

Here is the description of the e-book from Keta’s website and picture:

I'm a part-time aspiring romance novelist, book reviewer and blogger. I've always wanted to travel the world and learn everything I can about other countries. Learning the Italian language is one way of trying to make that dream come true. Traveling will help me with my writing because I'll be learning about the history of the U.S., Latin America, England, Italy, and Ireland, the countries I find so fascinating while reading the romance genre. I read and review romance novels of almost every subgenre along with erotic romance, mystery, sci-fi/fantasy and young adult novels. You can find the reviews at my blogs, Talk About My Favorite Authors and Phoebe Jordan's Reviews. I’ve also started a live podcast show called TAMFA | Phoebe Jordan hosted on Blog Talk Radio. This show is dedicated to everything I love about romance and young adult novels. I love having romance and young adult authors live on my show to be interviewed and showcase their books. I plan to write contemporary romance, romantic suspense, erotic romance, paranormal romance and young adult when I get my writing career started with help from Keta. I'm not sure what genre I'll write to begin with since I love to read so many different romance genres.
