Kelly Wyre – Luck in the Making

Genre: M/M Contemporary

It is no secret that I am a fan of short stories and novellas. It is a difficult thing, to pack enough information into a short to make it seem complete without packing so much that the reader feels rushed with it all.  This Valentine’s Day short (40 pages on iPad) comes close to too much, but never crosses that line for me.   It was just enough.

Jeffrey is the type … Continue reading

Typically I look forward to reading authors that do not have consistent ratings from reviewers.   I get a charge out of the challenge and figuring out which side of the scale I will fall.  This is why I was looking forward to reading The Beach House by John Simpson.  He evokes such strong emotion from readers and this was the first opportunity I have had to read one of his books.  So … Continue reading
