Bare Tour Day 5

bare_blogtour260sqOn Day 5 of the Bare Blog Tour, I’ll be at The Novel Approach with a guest post on doing the right thing. It might seem like a simple question, but for people like Ev Myers, a bisexual young man who grew up in a strict, religious, conservative, anti-gay family, things get a little more complicated. I can relate to Ev on that. The things my family attempted to teach me growing up wound up being counter to my own wellbeing. So take a peek at the post and enter the giveaways for a chance to win a copy of Bare!

The Bare Release Party and Live Author Chat is tonight! Stop by this link at ForbiddenFiction.com between 8pm-10pm EST to ask me your questions, find out inside information on the book, read exclusive excerpts from Bare AND my upcoming releases, Becoming Kerry and Restitution (Arctic Absolution series).

The tour ends Saturday, November 19th with drawings for the Giveaway! Enter every day of the tour for multiple chances to win a free ebook on Rafflecopter or a free print book on Goodreads!

Bare Tour Day 4

bare_blogtour260sqOn Bare Tour Day 4 we’re delving into deep dark themes of Bare with a post at Prism Book Alliance about toxic masculinity and its effects, as well as a post on the dangers of conversion therapy at ForbiddenFiction.com.

Though there is plenty of seduction and romance in Bare, the main character, Ev, struggles most with these two issues. He’s haunted by the ever-looming threat of being taken against his will to suffer conversion therapy, as his cousin has already done. He’s pressured to conform to others distorted expectations of what a real man is. These are two issues that are not just confined to the book, but poison all of our lives in ways we might not even be aware. Men and boys are forced every day to conform to expectations that strip away chances to be vulnerable and tell them to toughen up, which in turn effects the women and girls around them. And the horrors of conversion therapy are no myth, but a secret terror that has spread through the world largely unchecked.

I’ve been overwhelmed by all of the amazing reviews of the book that have come out this week. Here are a few of the latest:

~* 4.5 STARS from Joyfully Jay *~

“There’s such passion and intensity and a really thought-provoking story that’s wrapped within very hot and sexy packaging… I really enjoyed this story and it’s a book that just sucked me in from the very beginning.”

***

~* 5 STARS from Wicked Reads *~

“Even though I know that some of the most sensual scenes in romances can occur while a couple is fully dressed and not even within arm’s reach of one another, the way in which Kelling brings Adam’s theme of masculine vulnerability to life on the pages made those scenes far more intimate than I would have expected… I loved Bare and look forward to reading more of Kelling’s work.”

***

~* 5 STARS from Sinfully Sexy *~

“If you’ve never read Lynn Kelling because her dark or hardcore subject matter made you nervous, this is the book you should read… There is such beauty in this story and in Lynn Kelling’s words.”

***

~* 5 STARS from The Dark Arts *~

“I devoured this book from beginning to end, and loved every moment. Bare was definitely on the lighter side compared to what I’ve read from Lynn Kelling, but it still had a lot of the dark eroticism I love.”

***

~* 5 STARS from Prism Book Alliance *~

“This one was a total hit with me.”

Bare Release Day, Tour Day 3 & New Reviews!

bare_blogtour260sqWOOHOO! Bare has been officially been released! Though to a certain degree I feel like this with all of my books, Bare has been precious to me for a while now. It has been my happy place when real life wasn’t so happy. It has more sweetness and steam than some of my other stories (and less darkness). To be honest, it’s hard to let it go, but I’m hopeful it will be enjoyed and spread some more happiness around.

Today on the tour, I’m at On Top Down Under Book Reviews with a post about being naked at first sight, since that’s how this story begins and it definitely sets the tone for the rest of the tale.

~* 5 STARS from The Novel Approach!!*~

“At its heart, this is a love story. It may be, probably is, my favorite from this author because we get a real character driven plot in this book. Lynn Kelling has done a great job creating a story which revolves around and is pushed forward by her MCs.”

***

~*4.5 STARS from Gay Book Reviews!!*~

“The writing is suberb. Kelling is an author with a unique ability to make the reader meander through the character’s dark mind until light shines through. I can’t explain how she does it but it gets me every time.”

Please join me Thursday evening (8pm EST) for the Bare Release Party and Author Chat at FFP! Bring all of your juicy questions and read some more excerpts from both Bare and other projects coming your way soon…

Bare Blog Tour Day 2

bare_blogtour260sqIt’s day 2 of the Bare Blog Tour and there’s a lot going on! I’ll be at MM Book Escape with an author interview, where you can learn things about me that I’ve never admitted before, including the website I *always* keep open in my phone’s browser (it’s probably not what you think)!

I’ll also be at Hearts on Fire Reviews with an exclusive intimate excerpt from the book that you won’t find anywhere else.

***

~* 5 HEARTS from Hearts on Fire Reviews!!*~

“I loved every second of this incredible book…I’m not quite sure how she manages it, but just when I think she can’t possibly produce a new book that will take the place of one of hers that was already a favorite, it happens.  Gorgeous book to go along with a gorgeous cover and highly, highly recommended!!!”

***

~* 5 STARS from MM Book Escape!!*~

“Lynn Kelling is a fabulous storyteller and that is so apparent with this story. The details and descriptions will pull you in and  hold you hostage through the whole story. This is a very sexual and highly erotic story. Adam and Ev are in a very passionate and expressive relationship and they are pulled to each other constantly. They get down to the very basics, the raw and dirty, hungry and possessive, love between two men and it’s a beautiful story.”

Bare Blog Tour Day 1

bare_blogtour260sqWe’re kicking off the Bare Blog Tour today at The Blogger Girls! I’m interviewing Adam and Ev, so stop by to get a little introduction to the guys.

Please also check out the book review of Bare from The Blogger Girls…

“While this has a definite dark theme to it, in the grand scheme of Ms. Kelling’s work, it really was much lighter and sweeter than I originally anticipated. I enjoyed the dynamic of their relationship and the emotional aspects that were understandably present. If you’re looking for a BDSM story that’s a little different, with feels and emotions, be sure to give this one a try.” – JustJen

5 Star Pre-Release Review of Bare!

bare-e1476088755370The very first Pre-Release Review of Bare is in and it’s from the kick-ass folks at On Top Down Under Book Reviews—5 STARS!

“This is one of Lynn Kelling’s lighter reads. It’s also one of the most erotic, and given Lynn Kelling writes some pretty steamy books, that’s saying something… For a book with depth which is still easy to read. For the working through of issues, for communication, for happy, sexy times, for a win over arseholes who want to tempt you to the wrong side, always for the wrong, ingrained reasons, and for very good writing, 5 Stars!” – Kazza K

Please pop over and check out their full feedback and some HOT graphics with quotes from the book. Many thanks to Kazza for the awesome input!

Bare will be released on November 15. The blog tour will be from November 13–18 and will be packed full of multiple exclusive excerpts, a character interview with Adam and Ev, posts on being naked at first sight, the dangers of conversion therapy and toxic masculinity, giveaways, an author chat and more!

Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention for Caged Jaye

12144751_1152051578162256_5457885689979025011_n
I’m thrilled to share that Caged Jaye has gotten an Honorable Mention in the 2016 Rainbow Awards! Thank you to the generous judges for taking the time to read and give input on all of the nominated books. Check out what they had to say about Jaye…

“It was a very very dark read, and I had to interrupt it a few times because it was unbearable at times. What really made me reach the end were the characters. Jaye is an innocent man who goes through horrific things and he is able to find his strength. Cash, his protector, is not a black or white character, and he’s not positive or negative. He’s very hard to label, and I loved that. Even though I like a little bit of romance and I hoped against hope that there was going to be a big moment, there wasn’t, but it’s ok, because the “relationship” at least felt real. The setting is dark and for someone like me who loved the prison series Oz it was quite entertaining (even if I hate myself for feeling this). Anyway the fascination I had with this book is that it wasn’t trying to sugarcoat Jaye’s situation and that the character has a great survival instinct, he was a great fighter.Not a book I recommend if you want a light read.”

unnamedCheck out the Caged Jaye story page at ForbiddenFiction.com with blurb, excerpt, content labels, buy links, reviews and more… The continuation of Jaye’s story can be read in Arctic Absolution. The 3rd book in the series, Restitution, merges the disparate worlds of Caged Jaye and Arctic Absolution. It has been written, is currently in the editing phase of production and is coming soon!
