First off, I want to give a shout-out to the wonderful bloggers who have joined with GGR-PromoGroup for the Jerking Iron book tour. They generously give of their time and resources to help authors get a book off the ground, and even support with reviews that warm my heart.
And boy howdy, did my heart ever need warming. Between yesterday and this morning, the car went into cardiac arrest and is currently on life support. The only cure seems to be a new engine and for this make and model, that’s a very expensive proposition. That on top of waterline breaks, indoor plumbing/flooding disasters, a leaking (brand new) roof, a colicky horse and a migraine inducing case of bullying with moi as the target on Face Book this very morning.
Firstborn and I are working through the limited options while we say a sad goodbye to whatever balance remained in the checkbook. On the bullying front, I’ve respectfully removed myself from that particular arena, choosing a fight with outcomes that could make a difference and not kowtow to people chumming for attention.
But on to happier things. Here are the wonderful bloggers who comprised days 3 & 4 of the tour. Your kind words about the book made my day.
Jill Prand says this about Jerking Iron:
I loved both of these characters! Nick is a sweetheart under all the bravado and Jace is like a wounded puppy I just want to cuddle. Nya keeps us intrigued as the story is fast paced. Definitely a must read for me!
3 Chicks After Dark give it a sneaker and a badass boot:
This story is action packed and non-stop! It’s constantly changing and evolving with regards to the players and the rules of the game. I love the premise of the story and how Rawlyns incorporates the mafia action, because it offers unpredictability and endless opportunity. She manages to weave them all together into a complex network of dirty work and dangerous liaisons.
GGR-Reviews gives it 5* and says…
Nya really knows how to write a sexy story, and she has accomplished that in Gold with the Bad Boyfriend Series.

Jerking Iron is a hard-hitting tale of suspense when a damaged ex-cop from Miami and a burned out undercover NYPD vice cop pair up for a simple sting operation. Nick and Jace soon discover that under the layers of betrayal and lies runs the threat of an unexpected operation—one that takes the skin trade to new levels of perversion. Neither man is prepared for the mutual attraction that simmers to a rolling boil as it becomes clear that the only way they can cut to the truth is to allow Jace to sink once more into the dangerous underbelly of the city.
They’re about to find out why a man you can’t break is a man worth breaking…
