“It’s no secret that I love my m/m packed full of alpha males and this book delivered!”
~ Under the Covers

I’ve been wanting to read Layla Reyne for a while and I just couldn’t pass up reading IMPERIAL STOUT even though it’s a spin off series.  While I was scared I would be a little lost or would feel there was something missing, I’m happy to report that the author did a good job at dropping the few tidbits of information that pertain to the connection to the previous series and I had no problem jumping into this one and enjoying it.

It’s no secret that I love my m/m packed full of alpha males and this book delivered!  Nic and Cam are both take charge men.  They’re badass and great at their job.  I loved the dynamics between them in this book.  There was a kiss before this book started but they were still staying away from each other and they are working an important case here.  It’s always nice when the author gives enough importance to the suspense plot around the romance and not let the romance hinder that.  I thought that balance was nicely done here.

Overall, I can’t wait to continue reading this series!  And I definitely need to catch up with the first series because I have a feeling this can turn into one of my go-to m/m authors.

Favorite Quotes:

All sings pointed to danger.
So of course his fucking dick wanted to run right to it.

“I really want to kiss you again.”
Nic smirked. “Why do you think I brought the stout?”
“Cause it’s my favorite.”
Using his hand around Cam’s neck, Nic angled the other man’s face in and licked his lips. Tasting, teasing. “No, Boston. ‘Cause I like the taste of my beer on you.”

About Layla Reyne

Author Layla Reyne was raised in North Carolina and now calls San Francisco home. She enjoys weaving her bi-coastal experiences into her stories, along with adrenaline fueled suspense and heart pounding romance. When she’s not writing stories to excite her readers, she downloads too many books, watches too much television, and cooks too much food with her scientist husband, much to the delight of their smushed-face, leftover-loving dogs.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
