    • ***** 5 Stars *****Although I’ve had some reservations with Grif’s Toy (ref. a character who already left the plot), Wes’ Denial was a much anticipated story to me. I finished book 1 totally invested in Wes and Grif’s story.So, I have to confess that I felt a bit disappointed when the story barely started and Grif decided to disappear for two bloody months. It made me think that the story would be filled with unnecessary drama regarding Grif’s insecurities. Thank Lord, I was wrong! Soo [...]

    • Disclaimer: Editor's review*Sniffles* I love Wes; he walks such a delicate balance between brutal decadence and that finely tuned tender side. Both whisper in Grif's ear, calling out everything in him: the lover, the sub, the businessman, and in his own unique and ultimate way -- the master of all of Wes's kink and control. Take Grif away, Wes wouldn't be the same, take Wes awayOh maaaan. I can feel the draw so badly to Wes. Tonlet has such a vivid way of not only creating dynamic partnerships, [...]


    • I loved this book so much! Especially the ending and the epilogue. Yes, it had some sadness, but also so much love. Grif and Wes are one of my favorite couples. Both books in this series were very well written, especially the characters.


    • 5+++ EPIC journey The openings chapter was one that shakes you and keeps you right in g My God.Wes and Grif. The way they treat each other. delicate deeply imbued with loveNow and then a little crack of uncertainty which has to be confirmed. openlnerableThe storyline is one of high level.everything was right.flawless And then the humormetimes subtle sometimes prominent.I loved it allAll the details in their interactions were fascinating, Wes was perfect and GrifGrif was master (read servant) in [...]


    • This is the hardest review I’ve written so far which comes down to the fact that there is a gaping dichotomy between the quality of this book and the emotions it stirred up in me.At one point I wanted to chicken out, but then decided to ‘cowboy up’ after all. If you asked me: “Was this a good book?", I could look you happily in the eye and say, “Yes. It was blooming amazing, in fact.” Brilliant writing, in-depth characterization, a dramatic plot and two MCs I already loved.It starts [...]


    • Review originally posted atSinfully.4.5 starsInitially dropping the reader into Wes’s past for a shocking opening chapter, the story quickly picks up where Grif's Toy left off (and you really must read that before this one). Wes’ Denial is similar in style to the first book, taking us back in forth in time to tell Wes’ story and continue moving his relationship with Grif forward, but there is more of a darkness to this tale. We already knew that there were a few secrets Wes wasn't ready to [...]


    • Some books shouldn’t be allowed to end. But because stories invariably must come to a conclusion and I really didn’t want to say goodbye to Wes and Grif I did something I almost never do and rationed my reading. In fact, it would be safe to say that, in keeping with one of Wes and Grif’s preferred kinks, I denied myself the pleasure of reaching the end as quickly as I could have. And still I’m sorry I didn’t manage to make the book last longer. Because while Grif’s Toy was a fantasti [...]


    • 4.5 HEARTS! Holy mother of god! I need a moment to compose myself after that ending!! Phew, what a ride. So this story is a continuation of Grif's Toy, but is from Wes’ POV. Sweet, sexy, dominating sadistic Wes….Much like Grif’s Toy, we visit different points in Wes’ life in a random order. I was happy to see most of the book was set within the time period of Grif and Wes being together. The story starts right where we left off at the end of Grif’s Toy, and follows them over their next [...]


    • 5 StarsPre-Release ReviewThis is my half of a Gay Guy / Straight Girl Co-Review with fellow Goodreader, OJCast. To see our full review click the link below. There is also a question/answer session that follows.Full Disclosure - I was a beta reader for this book and worked closely with the author. My review is certainly colored by that experience. However these are my true thoughts and impressionsITIAL THOUGHTSI’ll assume you’ve read Grif’s Toy and, like me, couldn’t wait for Wes’ story [...]


    • 4 stars! I remember liking Grif’s Toy a lot and I have been looking forward to Wes’ Denial hoping to get a little more insight into these two interesting characters. While I managed to connect with Grif in the previous installment, Wes remained a little distant to me. Considering that Wes’ Denial is told from Wes’ point of view, I have been hoping to get to know him better. And I definitely did! The opening scene is enough to show that Wes’ past hasn’t been easy and I have been looki [...]


    • Wow! The 2nd book of JLT's Tease and Denial series just blew me away.It was just as awesome as Grif's Toy and gave me everything I love in a book.There is the special bond Grif and Wes have for each other, the kink. oh the kink!!!, their deep love for each other, and so much more. All in all it catapulted Wes' Denial right on top of my top favorite list.The bittersweet ending JLT you have no idea what you did to me. You made me a sobbing mess and sitting at a beach in Croatia, in one hand a cock [...]


    • 4.5 stars .what an exhausting journey and that bloody epilogue leaves me with tears and a heavy heart. This was the continuing story of Grif and Wes, with this book taken from Wes' POV. Wes had fears and issues that ran deep and he carried the heavy burden for too long. With the constant devotion from Grif, Wes was able to eventually forgive himself and accept his sadistic tendencies. These two were a perfect pair with an undeniable love for each other. I really enjoyed this series ❤️


    • yeah I read it straight through - there's no putting this one down.Seriously, the best ever. I can't even come up with words to describe the perfection that is this book. What a journey, to see everything through Wes' eyes - and to see Grif reacting to it all, knowing Grif like I do, oh god, it was just incredible.Beautifully written. I always praise Joseph Lance Tonlet's writing as among the best I've ever read, but this just has raised the bar beyond what I could have thought possible. I'm tru [...]


    • This book I won't be forgetting this story for a long time. It's got everything Grif's Toy does- the sexines, kink, romance, etc, but this felt so much more substantive. The story is told from Wes's perspective this time.Wes' Denial focuses on the big unanswered question from the first book- what big, dark secret is Wes hiding? Turns out, he's got a lot of really heavy baggage.I actually enjoy the time jumps in this. Like the first, we get a teenage Wes, when he was on active duty, before meetin [...]


    • This book is like real life. To touch. To breathe. To fully enjoy. Colorful and vibrant. Full truth and so full of love. But life is also full of surprises. And the view is often a matter of perspective And therefore:Or better - when you look from top of it - like Wes ;) : Secrets are revealed. Roles are reversed. Know yourself. Take on the past and work towards a common future.Joseph has packed all this in oh so beautiful words. And the circle is now closed. We saw the life periods of two wonde [...]


    • It's 6.30 in the morning and I am a sobbing mess! Review to come!*********I have waited years, well ok, a year and a half, for this story. I almost wanted to slap Joseph Lance Tonlet, and declare October 1st 2015 a day of mourning, when he postponed the release date. I even speculated if the evil man had planned it that way, to ensure that the series lived up it's name That also meant, that I had pretty high expectations of this book. And I am happy to say, that they were met and that Wes' story [...]


    • A Joyfully Jay review. 5 starsJoseph Lance Tonlet offers an amazing novel with Wes’ Denial. I have read all of his published work and while they are all special, the storytelling here shines ever so much brighter. This book comes after Grif’s Toy and is best enjoyed read in order.Now the above synopsis captures the basic framework of the story, but it cannot capture the emotion and the layering of the characters that Tonlet masterfully weaves together. This book, like its predecessor, is tol [...]


    • Review by The Blogger Girls. Don't miss the Kindle Fire give away package on this book! Link in review at The Blogger Girls.The Tease and Denial series is one that has taken me on an extremely fulfilling journey. Grif’s Toy showed us in beautiful, sexy and sometimes painful detail, what made Grif the man he became when he met Wes and how their relationship was formed. Likewise, Wes’ Denial does the same thing, but obviously, this is the story of Wes’ development, showing his life before an [...]


    • FGMAMTC Blog Review + Giveaway3.75 starsThe first book gave a lot of Grif’s background while introducing Wes and Grif’s relationship. In this installment, the reader gets to learn of Wes’s past as well as a closer look into their lives. Wes and Grif are madly in love. They both found the perfect person to compliment their needs. For me, this story was deeper. The kinks and BDSM lifestyle are heavily present, but bits that make this a love of a lifetime romance are very standout also. You [...]


    • I'm speechless and I'm a sobbing mess. Beautifully written, feelz all over the place, a bit of humor, some tears and whole lotta love.I recommend and to anyone who loves a great love story.Thanks, Mr. Tonlet!



    • REVIEWED FOR PRISM BOOK ALLIANCEWes’ Denial is book 2 in the Tease and Denial series by Joseph Lance Tonlet, it is an incredible and perfect follow up, but you must read Grif’s Toy first. Both books feature the same characters, follow their ups and downs and give you differing opinions that will slowly unravel an epic love story from the beginning through to a very emotional end. Grif’s Toy was one of my favourite books of 2014 and you can find what I had to say about it here.Where we got [...]

    • TeaserThe depths Joseph Lance Tonlet takes you as the reader in Wes’ Denial help you to understand how kink, that works for them, brought two soul mates together.

    • Wow! Just finished Wes' DenialI have tears in my eyestears.I didn't think I was going to end up teary eyedWes, from Grif's Toy has held my attention. There was something about him in Grif's Toy that commanded my attention. I needed to learn about his military backgroundI needed to learn where he came fromI needed to learn where these dark feelings came fromIn Wes' Denial you get that and then some. I love Wes so hard.This is one of the most beautiful love stories ever. Love. These two have it in [...]


    • Wow!!! It's not often I finish a book and then find myself sitting open-mouthed just trying to find the right words to do it justice. Grif's Toy was such a fantastic and out of the box read for me last year that Wes' Denial was an auto-buy. This whole story has fascinated me and what drew me in initially for the 'kink factor' has been so much more than I ever expected.And that endingOMG-tears streaming down my face- perfection!!!


    • (Originally reviewed for Love Bytes Reviews with a copy provided by the author / publisher for an honest review. Rated 4.5 out of 5.0 Love Bytes.)“He writes to bring the characters he dreams about to life.”That line is from the bio section on and elsewhere. All I can say is if these are the characters that Mr. Tonlet dreams about…his dreams are most people’s nightmares!Wes’ Denial will go down on my list as one of the most difficult reads I’ve had in recent months. The only one I ca [...]
