Not a bad romance story but not one of Mr Duchene’s best. Xavier Crawford is a cop on the CT SWAT team and absolutely hates having a citizen shadowing his team for a book or movie. Xavier is also a lonely man who tends to over-analyze a relationship. Rajan Anatolis is an insecure actor who is about to film his first english speaking film. The big catch for Rajan is that he … Continue reading
It was immensely interesting to see the note in the beginning of the book, which tells us that the book was inspired by a photo taken at a real life Pride parade. I did go look at the picture first, and it gave me a great visual in my head for the story.
That being said, the story itself is very short, told is alternating POV, starting with Ben, who is jogging … Continue reading
This was a decent Sci-Fi story with great world building. I found the blurb to be misleading in the fact the a majority of this story focused on a second set of MC’s. I think that they were more fleshed out and therefore more interesting. I had some difficulty connecting with either set of MC’s too much due to the constant POV shifts. Overall, it was an … Continue reading
There is something annoying about this book for me and I’m not sure what exactly it was. I can’t decide if it was the fact that once Julian and Ryan hook up, Ryan says “Julian” or “Jules” ad nauseum. That could have been it. Or, it could have been that the blurb is definitely misleading, in that this is a paranormal book, not a contemporary (which is what I thought it was). … Continue reading
This historical set in the early war time of 1940’s makes for an exciting read when it comes to the battle and the charming nature of the high-flier Jack. With its detailed descriptions and the vast array of characters it is never dull and manages to create anticipation even in the times of peace.
Arthur Edward ‘Jack’ Ratigan is a bomber pilot with a cocky attitude, charming personality and a disarming … Continue reading
Hey, Baby by L.M. Brown 4.5
This was my absolute favorite of the three stories in this anthology. Nick is a nice guy who works as a taxi driver, who is currently without a boyfriend. What he does have is a fabulous best friend named Mel (female) and an answering machine that is currently accepting messages from a wrong number. Connor thinks he is leaving messages for his long-distance boyfriend, Alan, … Continue reading
This story is the first of a three book series by two great authors. We get another spin on the werewolf so beware for something very different. Rob goes into a non-wolf dance club looking to pick up a one-night stand. Wolves are an open part of society and Rob is a cop assigned to human/wolf relations. Rob picks up a hot, younger, … Continue reading
Fans of J.P. Bowie will enjoy this sexy action book. Dr. Mark Hamilton is working at a refugee clinic in Darfur, a region of Sudan.
Formerly a rich, party boy in California, Mark had to prove himself as a real man and a capable doctor. Happily helping those that are less fortunate, Mark was finally at peace until Sergeant Major Jack Caruthers turns his world upside … Continue reading
This book was one of the best mainstream books I’ve read in years. Set in the late 19th century Britain with all the proper manners fripperies of the time, Alexia Tarabotti has been put on the shelf as a spinster. Queen Victoria has recognized werewolves and vampires as members of society when suddenly both vampires and werewolves begin to go missing. Alexia is swiftly taken down off … Continue reading
I have read a few books by this author and I can say with certainty that every one of them had something special, something that made it stand out among the others. She knows how to make an ordinary topic great and how to make difficult characters loveable. So you would expect that she would at least fail when it comes to sex, but once again … Continue reading
