Dante saved Carl's life, so he feels responsible for the kid. He does not think he is big enough or old enough to handle what he would give to him. Turns out that is not quite true...
When push comes to shove, all that matters is that Carl is willing to do what it takes to be where Dante is. Can Dante make a place in his carefully ordered life for him? All Carl wants is to be his.
There is more going on here, and Dante is right to be worried. It is a case of opposites attract. This is a great book of suspense and good banter. Sexy times, and dark and dangerous times. I loved how they could not deny one another even when they want to

Duce is a mafia M/M romance set in a futuristic, dystoptian type setting. The main characters Dante and Carlos meet in a night club when they are both out for a night of relaxation and interested in finding someone to have good time with. While they are both attracted to each other, Dante doesn't originally think its such a good idea to take Carlos home. A dangerous situation and a rescue lead to the two of them leaving the club together after all. That decision though sets off a chain of events that neither of them see coming. Dante soon discovers that the man he now can't stop thinking about is the son of a rival cartel boss. Carlos discovers that man he wanted from first sight is just like the men he has grown up around and despised. And in a new world that is against the two of them being together at all, it seems like their love is doomed before even really having a chance to begin.
Starting off, I'll mention the things that I liked about this book. Dante would be the main thing. Despite being this badass cartel guy, he was still honorable. If he made a promise, he kept it. If he saw someone in trouble, he helped. Of course he wasn't perfect, but that's what makes him even better. He has issues with things from his past. He also had moments where he did what he felt he had to do, even if it wasn't what he wanted to do, and even though it hurt Carlos. He still ended up being a great character for me and my favorite of the story. I liked the depth of the story-line. There were a lot of different things at play here but it was laid out in such a way that it flowed very well. There was no confusion as to what was going on in the moment, and there were no slow, boring moments for me.Read more ›
I read a lot of books but it’s not very often I find something truly unique and original. However, that is exactly what happened with these two stories. The plot and world are totally special and Kai Tyler’s writing voice is completely fresh and distinctive.
The world of World’s End is a futuristic, dystopian one where criminal cartels have taken over and rule their lands with varying degrees of iron fists. Some bosses allow drugs and prostitution, others do not. There isn’t much discussion about the past but the world building of how it currently is is magnificent.
Sicario is a short story and currently free on Amazon. It’s basically an introduction of the World’s End series, but just a primer. It was enough to make me request Duce so I could continue reading more about this fascinating world.
Enzo, a slave, is purchased by Lexan. He expects certain things from his new owner and is confused when Lexan is nothing like he anticipated. He expects to be raped but that isn’t what Lexan is going to do.
“…I would never think about topping you. Not unless it was what you wanted.”
When they do have sex it’s without pressure and completely consensual. It’s also extremely erotic and very hot. It’s not long until both men are bonded in a way that will change them forever. Not even Lexan’s career as a hitman can get in their way.
In Duce we meet mafia underboss Dante Orsini, heir to a large crime family. He’s also gay, something that isn’t widely known. One of the changes in The New World is that being gay is once again frowned on, in fact it can get you killed. He still manages to find lovers such as Carl, a mouthy twink he picks up at a bar.Read more ›
