Reviews:Milica on Goodreads Inc wrote:

Hands down,this is probably one of the best contemporary M/M romances that I've read in long time...

Why? No tropes here - no crazy ex-boyfriends,no traumatized characters,no unnecessary angst...It's original,if a little unbelievable,but I wouldn't be reading it if I wanted some dull everyday story. Characters are extremely well developed (secondary as well as MCs) and what I liked the most was their distinctiveness...considering this is dual POV,that's very important,and believe me,author did it superbly. And last but not least it's highly erotic read,and...to say "it was hot" would be an understatement.

Really,I could write some long review and lose you halfway,but I can't recommend this book highly enough...And if you still hesitate,it's full of drag queens in all its glory...so,what can I say except - ENJOY!

Catrin Russell (Fantasy author) on Goodreads Inc wrote:

Rob Martyn lives an unassuming life; no kids, working a dead-end job, and caught in a relationship with a woman he barely spends time with, let alone touches. Needless to say, this takes a drastic turn as this story begins, where Rob is locked out of his own home, with a few bags of possessions, and his father's old grandfather clock. His wife is divorcing him, and he's forced to reassess his life and what he wants to do.

And in comes Lexington Black... *swoon*

Right, so this sounds like an insta-gay moment, but it isn't. Rob has always felt a bit awkward with women, or sexual experiences in general, long thinking he's basically been asexual. Well, until he meets Lex, that is. The sexual tiger is unleashed, and there is no going back!

Now, this story has nothing of the usual, but ALL of the unusual! Main characters who aren't quite what you think they are - yes, Lex is a rich alpha billionaire, but he's got a softness and weaknesses, so he's certainly not perfect. Then Rob, not at all as awkward as you would have thought (considering his new sexual identity), but embraces his new life with confidence (albeit perhaps feigned at times).

We also have a range of fantastic side-characters: Rob's supportive and funny sister, the hilarious but warm drag queen Caressa/Peter, and a host of smaller characters, all of whom play an important role in the story as a whole (Lex's father, Rob's other siblings, Philip, etc.)

There are parts of this story that are on the verge of being too good to be true, but to be perfectly honest, I don't care! And I'm proud to say it! It is a story that weaves together without fault, and it needs to be followed through to the end, for the revelations are excellently presented. I won't go into detail due to the risk of spoiling, but it was a great end to a fabulous M/M steamy romance. I highly recommend this book!

Queercentric Books on Goodreads Inc wrote:

Lexington Black was a surprising treat! I started the book intrigued and came out thoroughly fulfilled. This is a story of self discovery, empowerment, love, and forgiveness.

(Rob) Martyn is recently divorced, straight, and living an unexciting life as a bookkeeper for a luxury car dealer. He’s never done anything for himself and he has spent his entire life trying to please his family, most of whom consider him a waste of space.

Robin has put his aspirations of being an author on hold based on the criticisms of his ex-wife. On top of that, Rob’s father committed suicide when he was 15 and ever since he has found it hard to trust anyone other than his twin sister, Geri.

Lexington (Lex) Black is an openly gay and wealthy New Yorker. His father is sick so Lex has taken over his company. Despite his success, his father still can’t get past the fact that Lex, his only son, is gay.

Due to his lavish lifestyle, Lex is accustomed to having the best and getting what he wants. After a chance meeting at Rob’s dealership, Lex sets his sights on Rob. Finally seducing Rob into a night of intense passion, he quickly lures him back to NYC with the pretense of helping him kick off his writing career.

SECRETS ARE REVEALED

Rob is introduced to Lex’s gay Manhattan lifestyle and his colorful friends, including drag queen Caressa/Peter who is Lex’s oldest friend. Rob embarks on a journey of self discovery while simultaneously falling in love with Lexington. Afraid of losing the only man he’s ever loved, Lex keeps secret his past which includes a torrid one night of passion with Rob’s father. When secrets are revealed, will their love be strong enough to keep them together?

Rob is adorable! He is a Hugh Grant-ish Englishman who finds himself in awkward social interactions. From having his balls shaved by drag queens to having his first threesome, he bumbles his way through and is able to just go along with it.

Tony on Queeromance Ink wrote:

On the surface this is a simple story. Lexington Black, a rich white guy used to getting what he wants, sees a handsome man at work and decides he wants some of that.

Simple? Sorry Lex, your life is about to become anything but simple. A story about spoiled rich guys getting what they want or what they deserve? Maybe but this is so much more. This tale is funny, sad, sexy, sensual, erotic, raunchy, arch, bitchy, exciting, dark, heart breaking and delivers on so many levels.

Lexington Black is a predator: “I’m the enemy, Rob. I’m into mergers and acquisitions. I buy companies, asset-strip them, make a lot of money and move on, like an Armani-clad locust. Does that bother you?” He is not joking, but it’s only half the story. He’s a lost boy looking for something but what it is he does not know until he gets to meet Rob Martyn.

Rob is another lost one. He is not financially poor, but he is relationship poor. He’s freshly divorced from his bitch of a wife when Lex comes into his life and turns it upside down. He discovers he’s gay after beginning to think he was probably asexual. Now he is wondering if he could actually be falling in love with a man, and a powerful man at that. Rob is no pushover, though, and that definitely makes him hot in Lex’s eyes. The problem is that Lex is harbouring a dark secret that could hurt them both if it is revealed.

Lex and Rob are complex men with a lot of vulnerabilities neither would be happy to have revealed. The role unlimited wealth has when making real friends is addressed well here too. Lex’s best friends are those who are equally wealthy or totally unimpressed by money and possessions. Money is not the defining theme of the book.

Lexington Black is about trust, love, acceptance and honesty. It’s also about following one’s heart and treating others respectfully and kindly. This is a wonderfully told story full of great characters that leap off the pages.

Reviews:Rainbow Gold Reviews on Rainbow Gold Reviews wrote:

This book was not what I was expecting. I didn’t read the blurb when I bought this one and thought I would be reading a story that was completely about sex with maybe a little romance thrown in just to sweeten it up a bit. Boy was I wrong!

I was instantly enamored with Tino. I really felt for his character and his situation both at work and with his family. I liked that he had some attributes that made him less than perfect and more human while completely surprising me when he proved that he could be hard and somewhat cruel when he has to. The first erotic scene happened pretty quickly after that initial introduction and that’s where I thought the story would continue. I didn’t care much for Tino’s supervisor and I didn’t like the CEO Richard Mason… at first, but I’ll get back to him in just a second. I was surprised that this didn’t take the same ‘ol trip down the CEO and PA erotic romance road that I’m used to.

So, back to Richard. It took me a bit to warm up to him. I spent most of my time wanting to either wring his neck because he couldn’t see what his actions were doing to others or shake him silly because he was oblivious to what was right in front of him. But his character has depth and strength that isn’t immediately apparent. It was interesting to get to know a little bit about what made him the person he was as well as watching him continue to evolve and grow.

I liked the way this story built and grew. I liked the suspense, the action and of course the hotness between the MCs. It was a fun story with lots of surprises.

LoveReading on Goodreads wrote:

phew! *Fanning self* what a saucy and cute story!
I love the relationship and interactions between Tino and Richard. They were so different, yet so compatible.

You gotta read the story to see what I mean.

A perfect story for MM erotica lovers. I found the story easy to read and fast to get hooked into it. The main characters were solid throughout the book and certainly lovable. Engaging story. I look forward to reading the author's other stories. Thank you, Lady Jaguar for putting your stories on KU!

Sharon on Goodreads wrote:

I was given a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.
Going Down really surprised me. I was expecting romance, love and some humour but, instead, I got a book in which no one is who they appeared to be - and I'm including Tino in this group. Everyone has secrets and none of the characters are the people that we first meet.

The book is a romance and starts when Tino and company CEO Richard are trapped in an elevator for hours. Some very hot sex occurs but Tino is warned what happens in the elevator stays in the elevator. Obviously, this doesn't prove to be the case.

We have gangsters, some very mild BDSM elements and we have Pagan. More that this though we have Tino and Richard - the main characters who have so much more to offer both each other and the readers.
I really enjoyed this book and I will be looking for more by this author.
Definitely recommended.


Going Down features Richard Mason, the pansexual main character in Jayne Lockwood's book Closer Than Blood.

Though there are elements of the original story included in this book, the two novels unrelated and can be read on a standalone basis.

Reviews:R&C Christiansen (Dark Romance Author) on Goodreads wrote:

Once again, this author has left me breathless and addicted to this series which isn't over yet. (Thank God) This book is the fifth installment of the Closer Than Blood series, and I loved it. The intimate scenes are a work of genius, like a stunning piece of art you find yourself immersed in—the characters and realistic with flaws and issues that take time to work out.

Richard Mason is the pushy, bossy, closed off, and overly powerful man I'd expected and fallen in love with from book one, while Pagan is her usual 'take no crap' woman I've always respected. Then there is Tino, and he's genuinely adorable with the way he loves Richard and his brooding ways. But, if you put Richard, Tino, and Marcus (Pagan's hubs) in the same hotel room, you have yourself a literal panty-melting scene that will leave you needing a cold shower by the end.

Richard wants it all, and I love him so damn much; I can't wait to see what happens in the next book. I refuse to give spoilers but, I can say Lady J has nailed it once again and left me both heated and in love with this series. A must-read for anyone who enjoys a powerful rich man, a little violence, a lot of sex, some filthy secrets, and one hell of a hot M/M/M scene or twenty.

Catrin Russell (Author of The Lights of Darkness series) on Goodreads wrote:

No Limits is the fifth book of the Closer Than Blood series by Jayne Lockwood aka Lady Jaguar. Just like the earlier books, it is high octane, action-filled romantic suspense with witty, raw characters and smoking hot sexual encounters.

Richard's past keeps catching up to him, no matter how much he works on keeping his new marriage afloat. Acquaintances from his days as Frank Mancini show up at the funeral of his old mob boss, and everything goes downhill from there. But boy, is it a thrilling ride!

The story is full of twists, heartache and angst, and it is absolutely magnificent! And I can't even begin to tell how much I love the characters in this series! They are wonderfully fleshed-out, layered and most definitely flawed. And they work splendidly together, creating a palpable atmosphere in each scene, no matter if it's fun and sweet, or dark and dangerous.

There is so much to love about this series, and this book no different. It is exciting from cover to cover and it's impossible to put down. If you're in for a fun ride and some smoking hot M/M erotic romance, then look no further! This one will NOT disappoint!

Sue Philips on Goodreads wrote:

This is the first book I've read by Lady Jaguar and I must say I was totally mesmerized in the story. The relationship between Tino and Richard shows the importance of communication in a relationship. From Tino because he didn't make a big enough effort to tell Richard how he was feeling and from Richard because he though he knew what Tino wanted yet he wasn't prepared to bare himself to the one person he professed to love more than life itself.

The inability to not be able to be transparent nearly cost these two everything. But then who could see what a loving and meddling Nonna can do when she puts her mind to it.
Highly recommend.
I want more of this author.
