Genre: M/M Contemporary
ISBN 13: 9781613721407

Ménages are something I truly enjoy reading about, but those are also some of the stories that are most difficult to write. How do you make it work three-way without giving the impression of distancing one of the characters? Some authors are brilliant when it comes to creating unbreakable emotional ties and making the sexual aspect of their relationship a side thing. I more than found what I … Continue reading

This was my very first foray into the F/F genre, and since I really like the M/M genre above all else, I was a little apprehensive. I needn’t have been, however, because the writing of Lucy Felthouse made me like the book.   Heidi is a young woman, living alone in, yes, a Cottage in the Woods.  Peering out her window one day, she spies a fox.  Thinking the fox … Continue reading

The premise of this book was one I usually enjoy – reunions, second chances, getting back to where you where.  With this book, however, I felt it was not done acceptably.  Brody and Dale are best friends, first loves, high school sweethearts.   They are in it for the long haul, or so Brody thinks right up until the minute that Dale up and leaves him, joining the Air Force … Continue reading

Genre: M/M Paranormal

I enjoyed the pairing of Morgan, a gentle giant of a shark, and Alexis, the sex demon. Alexis was severely burned in the previous book in this series and is filled with low self esteem and  self doubt. After all, who is he if not a beautiful incubus who’s main talent is sex? Well, Morgan knows that there is much more to Alexis than that and his love and support never waiver. … Continue reading

I have been looking forward to reading this book after getting glimpses of Takeo hovering in Kamiko’s room while reading the Zeus Pack Series by Lynn. This was a decent installment in the series.

I enjoyed seeing Kamiko, an abuse survivor, coming out of his shell and becoming the man that he was meant to be. Takeo was a bit frustrating to read with his vacillating anger and tenderness towards Kamiko. There is … Continue reading
