Book Summary: 

Physically scarred ex-model Kyle Anderson leads two lives: he is a chauffeur by day, and an exotic dancer by night. His performance attracts the attention of Nick Giddings, a factory worker visiting the club to forget his worries.

Kyle was kicked out by his parents when a car accident on his eighteenth birthday left his face scarred. Now he works for his uncle's limousine rental company, but the pay is too low for him to become financially independent. So, he dons a mask and works as an exotic dancer most evenings.

Nick has been kicked out of school for a prank he didn't commit, and rejected by his parents. He is too proud to sell his body, so ends up working for a fast food chain until he can secure a job as a forklift driver. Meeting a gorgeous exotic dancer is just the icing on the cake. But when he is laid off, all his dreams come to an abrupt end...


Siren's review of Workplace Encounters 2: The Chauffeur

Five Siren Stones

Reviewer: Cia

Kyle is a young man who’d made mistakes that put an end to the life he knew it. This showed him the cruelty of being used, which endeared me to him. From there, Kyle’s life seemed to spiral out of control. Between his two polar opposite professions and his uncle, life wasn’t easy.

When Nick came into Kyle’s life, his world turned topsy turvey. He found a man he wanted to be with and found in him, his own strength by leaning on the other man.

Yet Nick’s own problems compounded their future. Only by putting their heads together did they find alternate choices to benefit them both, a surprising twist that wasn’t as it seemed.

I enjoyed this read and would recommend it to my friends as top notch!

Book Summary:

Joe Taylor isn't interested in anything beyond casual sex - until he meets Bill Evans.

Joe is a quiet elevator installer who longs for a more stable life than having to change work sites and teams all the time. He doesn't want a relationship, though. When he runs into Bill Evans, his priorities begin to change.

Bill is about to open his own fitness center at the new super mall north-east of Philadelphia where Joe currently works. The two men are immediately attracted to each other, and when they meet again at a gay club at the end of the work week, the sparks fly. Bill suggests a casual arrangement for weekend sex, which suits Joe initially.

But when the sex gets hotter by the weekend, and Joe begins to be attracted to Bill beyond the physical, will they be able to make a relationship work?

Siren's review of Workplace Encounters 1: The Elevator Mechanic 

Five Siren Stones

Reviewer: Cia

The Elevator Mechanic by Serena Yates was one hot quick read.

There’s something about blue collar workers that is enticing. Joe is the more effeminate of males, possessing keen intelligence and intuitive skills for his job. Unfortunately, he lacked the self confidence to stand up for himself. This is the same characteristic that had Joe sitting on the sidelines of love.

Until he meets Bill, an entrepreneur with dreams and plans of his own. Both men have issues from their childhood that make them wary of long term commitment, the kind where emotions are bared for anyone to see.

When an accident happened on the job, Bill needed to decide what was more important, showing love, allowing it to grow or putting its existence on the back burner. Joe had to find it in himself how to deal with a bully, and finally stand his ground.

The emotional growth of this couple was splendid, and the skyrocketing sensuality was heart melting. The culmination of both made for a fantastic read!
