Fabulous review for Hell & High Water on Audiobook from Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews!

Hell&HighWaterAB
Hello all! Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews has reviewed the audiobook of Hell & High Water and it’s absolutely amazing!

I absolutely LOVED Hell & High Water back in July when it was first released, it was a HUGE five star read for me. I found myself incredibly excited, that not only had I found a new-to-me author in Charlie Cochet, but also a book that kept me gripped and turning the pages, with characters that completely stole my heart and the promise of so much more in future instalments… I was definitely doing a little happy dance.

… the man’s voice oozes sex, it’s so deep and masculine, with a sexy gravely tone to it that had me melting before he finished saying “Hell & High Water: THIRDS book #1, written by Charlie Cochet”  and continued right to the very end. For the telling of this story, this man is PEFECT!

Fantastic Review for Hell & High Water from Boys in Our Books!

newreview

Hello all! I woke up this morning to a wonderful treat! A great review from Ami over at Boys in Our Books for Hell & High Water! Check out some of the lovely things she had to say about it:

But what about the story itself, you say? Like I said, this is probably her best yet. Well, it’s definitely my all-time favorite from her so far – maybe until book #2 is released. If anyone has known me for awhile, I very rarely giving a 4.5 or 5 stars. When I do, usually they are for books that can touch me emotionally. But once in awhile – just like I’m gushing over the new Captain America movie! – a fast-paced book that is just pure entertainment with a great cast of characters, charming banter, EXCITING action (oh, and some explosives!), and a well-worthy villain, can definitely enter my top favorites too. This one is an example.

Wonderful 5 star reviews for Hell & High Water!

newreviewHello all! I’m so excited to share with you two more wonderful 5 star reviews that have come in for Hell & High Water. I’m just so thrilled that folks are enjoying the book and looking forward to the next installment. Good thing Blood & Thunder is out in Aug!

T.M. Smith from MM Good Book Reviews says:

This is a must read for fans of alpha male romance, dry and whitty comic relief, mystery, suspense and comradery with some juicy sexual tension and a few sloppy kisses that lead to just a little bit of unbridled passion. I cannot wait for the next book in this series, I have some thoughts about different things that happened in this book, and I can’t wait to see how certain storylines and threats play out. Grab your copy now and get ready for book 2, Blood and Thunder.

Caroline from Prism Book Alliance says:

This book was a fantastic surprise! Great writing, fantastic world building, two interesting and very real Mc’s alongside a great team of secondary characters and an unusual slant on shifters. As book 1 in a new series it did exactly what it should have done and left me desperate for book 2.

The Impetuous Afflictions Blog Tour Starts Today!!

blogtour300x200

Hello everyone! I’m super excited to be launching The Impetuous Afflictions Blog Tour!! The tour has 13 stops. The first 6 stops are a personally guided tour conducted by the man himself, Jonathan Wolfe. The remaining 7 stops will give you the opportunity to meet the brats individually, and in some cases they will have a partner in crime. I heard for the final day, Johnnie has somehow managed to drag Chance along. That should be interesting.

Disclaimer: Please note. I can’t be held responsible for what comes out of Johnnie’s mouth. I’ve been informed he’s on his best behavior, but I think we both know that his definition of “best behavior” differs vastly from ours. 

Anyway, the tour will also feature serialized excerpts consisting of the whole of Chapter Two. So if you haven’t read Chapter One, you can go ahead and do so from either my website here:

http://www.charliecochet.com/books/novels/the-impetuous-afflictions-of-jonathan-wolfe/excerpt/

The Romance Reviews gives The Auspicious Troubles of Chance a wonderful review!

Yesterday I woke up to no internet, phone, or TV service. A problem which wouldn’t get sorted until this afternoon. However finding this lovely review for Chance in my inbox couldn’t have come at a better time, as I’m busy working away on Johnnie’s story for his upcoming deadline (more about that soon!).

Susan Mac Nicol from The Romance Reviews had some truly wonderful things to say about the book. I’m so glad she enjoyed it. She said,

“This was truly a story unlike anything I’ve read in this genre before. The characters themselves are all so well drawn and portrayed, the writing flows and ebbs with emotions and wonderful situations, and I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed this story. The plot is well thought through, the relationship between Chance and Jacky beautifully written with sympathy, humour and the inevitable growing affection between the two men.”

Mending Noel Reviews and Branching Out!

NutcrackerHello all! Some of you may know that Mending Noel is my first little venture outside the realm of Historical. Even before I was published, I knew I didn’t want to limit myself to just one genre. That said, I love Historical and have every intention of keeping up with those stories. In fact I’m working on them now! Johnnie, Remi, Danny, Bruce, and all the fellas are still eagerly awaiting their next books, while Julius’s book is going through various stages of beta reading. There are certainly more to come.

I’ve been writing since I can remember. When I was a kid I’d make up my own characters, draw them, and write little stories to go with them. In high school I started my first novel. I didn’t own a computer (few people did) so it was written across a bunch of journals. When I got my first computer in college, I rewrote it. I think I ended up rewriting it abut four times. Anyway, it was a Medieval fantasy of sorts. Let me tell you right now that I am rubbish at categorizing stories. I can’t say my story is going to be this specific genre because it might have elements from various genres thrown in. Wherever the story wants to take me, providing I enjoy it, and it works, that’s what I write. I like to make things different if I can, and I have a habit of ignoring the rules if I can find a new, interesting alternative. Mending Noel is one of those stories.

Even though I knew I was writing a sweet little story about elves at the North Pole, I wanted it to be different. I wanted to make up my own world using certain mythological beings from Christmas lore. It’s fantasy but with a sort of urban twist because it takes place in a city, North Pole City, and like any other city, it can be dangerous. The enchanted creatures have jobs, there are misfits and outcasts, there’s homophobia, drunkenness, scandal, and poverty. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a gritty tale. I wanted something cheerful and cute for Christmas, but it does have a grittiness to it. Nothing is perfect, so I didn’t want the North Pole to be either. Tim has a crappy job he hates, a supervisor who bullies him, and he’s barely scraping by.

Brief Encounters has given it a wonderful 5 star review here, and the reviewer goes a little into the world I built, which was a real treat to read. For all of you who have enjoyed Mending Noel, for all the lovely ratings and reviews you’ve left, thank you so much. It really means a lot to me to know you’ve enjoyed my first non-historical title. I have a few more stories in the works that range anywhere from contemporary comedy/adventure to urban fantasy. I’ve been told Mending Noel still sounds distinctly me, which I couldn’t be happier with. I have a certain style I suppose, and it’ll be following me into whatever genre I venture into. Hope you’re all ready for that ride!
