Today is an exciting day for authors Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell! These two amazing authors, have created another dynamic novel for the world to fall in love all over again,Fast Connection. I though my heart couldn’t contain the amount of love I felt after reading the story of Staff Sargent Garret, or the video streaming former Broadway dancer Kai, who has a devastating anxiety disorder.
“I was counting down the months until the end of my deployment. My days were spent working on military vehicles, and I spent my nights playing video games that would distract me until I could leave Staff Sergeant Garrett Reid behind.
That was when I met him: Kai Bannon, a fellow gamer with a famous stream channel.
I never expected to become fixated on someone who’d initially been a rival. And I’d never expected someone who oozed charm to notice me—a guy known for his brutal honesty and scowl. I hadn’t planned for our online friendship to turn into something that kept me up at night—hours of chatting evolving into filthy webcam sessions.
But it did. And now I can’t stop thinking about him. In my mind, our real life meeting is perfect. We kiss, we fall into bed, and it’s love at first sight.
Except, like most things in my life, it doesn’t go as planned.
Strong Signal is a standalone, full-length novel with no cliffhanger.“
These two amazing authors created such a great contemporary romances that did not feel preachy, unrealistic, or erotic. Well it did feel erotic when the time called for it, and let me say when it called for it, it was absolutely amazing! I’m not a sexual reader, I cover my eyes when movies start to get physical, but when I say the scene was AMAZING, I mean A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. It isn’t just a sex scene, it’s a romance scene, it’s a moment reflected between two characters that are drenched in love, trust, faith, and desire. What I really love about this book that it’s not written to fit any book selling mold of what a M&M romance novel should/ shouldn’t be, instead the book is focused on the characters, their stories, and how love, lust, desire, emotions, vulnerability, and trust can lead you towards a happy ever after. The Cyberlove series, is a heartbreaking, moving, and an amazing read. I’m not even sure how to express how much emotions I have when it comes to reading the great collaboration authors of Megan Erickson & Santino Hassell. Now, they’ve done it again, they have created another wonderful romance novel that I can’t wait to read, again. Cause let’s face it when you really love a book once isn’t enough!
Fast Connection has everything I ever wanted when it comes to continuing a good thing. Oh, and believe me, it does. Everything I ever loved about Kai and Garret’s story is completely blown out the water with this Dominic “Nicky” Costigan (YASSSSS, that Costigan *wink*), and Silver Fox Luke. You gotta read this book. I mean you just gotta. I’m seriously begging you to read this book, it’s that damn good PEOPLE!
After a decade of serving in the Army, everyone still expects me to be Dominic ‘Nicky’ Costigan—the skirt-chasing player. They don’t know I’ve been spending my days trying to figure out my post-military life. Including how to pick up guys.
When I meet Luke on a hookup app, he makes it clear it’s for one-night only. That’s fine with me, because I’m down to see what this silver fox can do. But after I arrive at his doorstep, it doesn’t take long to realize we have serious chemistry, and we end up meeting again.
He’s got more walls around his heart than a military base, but I think he’s as addicted to me as I am to him. He can’t resist me for long. I mean, who can? Except Luke’s rules exist for a reason, and when I test his limits, things get complicated. Maybe too complicated.
Don’t worry guys, when you’re finish reading Fast Connection I know you’re going to want to read more from the these two amazing authors. Honestly by the end of this post, if you’re not fallowing Erickson & Hassell, they you’re missing out of these two hilarious daily banter. I feel what makes their collaboration work so amazing is the fact that individually they are two amazing people. They are both passionate about diversity giving their characters the voices that are every much needed for readers around the vast book community. Without out further ado, let’s get to know my two favorite collaborating authors of strong diverse characters, with amazing romantic scenes. First up Megan Erickson!

First of all, look at this guy, he’s a friggin’ mystery novel within himself! He’s like a vilgaienty of romances novels, only his true friends know what he looks like, or what he’s truly like. But what I do know is that HE IS AN AMAZING WRITER. Sweet Southern Ice Tea this mysterious Net wearing author is amazing. I mean AMAZING It begs repeating AMAZING! Yes, he writes queer romances novels, but they are more than just queer romance, they are stories worth hearing, reading, obsessing over!
Santino Hassell was raised by a conservative family, but he was anything but traditional. He grew up to be a smart-mouthed, school cutting grunge kid, then a transient twenty-something, and eventually transformed into an unlikely romance author.
Santino writes queer romance that is heavily influenced by the gritty, urban landscape of New York City, his belief that human relationships are complex and flawed, and his own life experiences.
