Daddy Issues
(North Shore Stories, Book 2)
By Lynn Van Dorn
Narrated by Michael Ferraiuolo


Length: 10 hrs and 44 mins

Marek Wisniewski is a man used to being obeyed, whether it’s by his patients or his lovers. When he’s hired to be an in-home nurse for an extremely difficult old man, he’s certain he can handle it until he comes face to face with Ryan, his client’s son. Both men have reasons to dislike each other, and neither is pleased when they’re forced to live under the same roof. Ryan wants Marek gone, and Marek wants to bring the beautiful and spoiled Ryan to his knees.

Ryan Chadwick seems to live a charmed life, but underneath his polished veneer of arrogance and success, he’s miserable. Ryan feels increasingly like his carefully constructed life is spinning out of control. All it’ll take is one little push to bring his world crashing down around him.

Marek and Ryan clash again and again, causing Ryan to further question who he is and what he wants. Marek brings out a side in him he didn’t know existed, a side that wants to please and obey. Marek’s desire to teach Ryan a lesson in humility becomes, over time, a lesson to show Ryan that who, and what, he wants isn’t shameful.

Two very different men come together and discover that what you want, and what you need, aren’t always the same thing. That you need to pace yourself at a Polish dinner, how building snowmen is not rocket science, that a mansion on a lake doesn’t guarantee happiness, and most of all, the importance of letting go.

Daddy Issues is a 90,000 word steamy romance in the North Shore Stories series. It contains BDSM elements, fisting, a blanket fort, an embarrassing butt plug, lots of food, and an HEA. This book follows Be My Mistake and Damage Control, but can be read as a stand-alone novel.

Oh my…

Lynn and Michael will break you then weave you back together.

Following on from Damage Control, Lynn was able to explore, expose, reveal and heal Ryan. From book one I hated Ryan! He was horrible, I’m so thankful (?) he was able to be redeemed. There was so much beneath the surface, so much hurt, abuse, growth, just so much…more.

Lynn has a way of breaking you and weaving you into the story and the characters. You can’t help but become invested and with the weight if such heavy and poignant issues, Lynn takes great care to heal and transform. Her writing is so REAL and doesn’t shy away from harsh truths. I love her honesty. Life is messy, people make mistakes, the broken can heal!

Another transformative experience from Lynn, thank you!!

Damage Control
(North Shore Stories, Book 1)
By Lynn Van Dorn
Narrated by Michael Ferraiuolo


Length: 18 hrs and 58 mins

Everything to lose.

Tyler’s worked hard to kick the dust of the Chicago suburbs off his heels and move on with his life as Hollywood’s newest up-and-comer, burying his demons and hiding his scars from the world. Just as everything seems to be going his way, a scandal from his past threatens everything he’s worked for. Now he’s stuck back home, where his family of lawyers can maybe help sink the scandal and find out who’s behind it.

Afraid to love.

Josh doesn’t know what to think when his ex’s little brother falls into his arms, other than that Tyler is trouble with a capital T. But when Tyler’s publicist suggests that an adoring fake boyfriend might be just the ticket to saving Tyler’s acting career, Josh doesn’t mind playing along. It’s not like he has anything else going on, and faking a relationship with someone you’ve known your entire life can’t possibly be that difficult.

A second chance for two damaged hearts.

Now they’re stuck together for the foreseeable future, and neither can deny their mounting attraction. Why should they? They’re supposed to be in love, at least out in public. But in private, when no one is watching, Tyler and Josh grow closer in a way that has nothing to do with their agreed upon arrangement. What do they do when make-believe becomes real, and how can two men with such different lives have a shared future?

Damage Control is a steamy, stand-alone gay romance with no cliffhanger and a HEA.

Be My Mistake (North Shore Stories 0.5)
By Lynn Van Dorn


One grumpy boy…

Ethan’s Valentine’s day isn’t going well. He’s been talked into attending a pretentious premier gala with his ex-boyfriend at movie mogul Charles Weston’s posh Beverly Hills mansion. Ethan’s plan is to hit up the free bar for all the gin they’ll give him, then slink home, alone. Instead, he gets lost in the host’s mansion, runs into a handsome stranger, and suddenly his night takes a sharp turn for the better.

Plus one lonely man…

Charlie has everything he could ever want, except someone to love, and he’s just about given up trying to find him. Then, at his party, he stumbles upon a young man gawking at his Cezanne and cursing his name. Charlie is amused, then charmed, then turned on by Ethan, who can’t shut up and has the biggest blue eyes Charlie has ever seen.

Equals the most memorable Valentine’s Day ever.

Both know that falling into bed with a stranger is a terrible idea, but it might turn out to best mistake either has ever made.

Be My Mistake is a prequel of sorts to Damage Control, but can be read on its own. It’s a scorchingly hot Valentine’s Day novella with a mouthy twink, the best Daddy ever, a lot of John Hughes references, a ridiculous mansion which may or may not contain a twinkpit, and, of course, a HEA.
