“I’m going to kiss you now,” Eric says, “and I’m going to mean it.”   That line just made the book for me.  I am a big fan of friends to lovers stories, and I especially appreciate when there is some uncertainty involved, which this story has.

Luke and Eric are best friends, have been for years.  Luke has painfully watched Eric fall for other guys, never letting his feelings show because he … Continue reading

Genre: F/F Anthology
ISBN 13: 9781781661680

This is a collection of three short stories focusing on F/F couples.   Because each story is so short, there isn’t a lot of time for relationship development, so they are more vignettes, glimpses into their lives.

The first, While the Boys are Away, concentrates on Amelia and Gemma, who are camping with their respective boyfriends.  Said boyfriends are spending time trying to get the barbeque going, so the girls decide to … Continue reading

Red Haircrow – The Angel of Berlin

Genre: Gay Fiction
ISBN 13: 9781452441665

 

I wanted to like this story but I didn’t. I couldn’t stand the all too frequent exclamation points during the dialogue. Well, it was all Robin who did the talking in the story. It made it more difficult for me to connect to the story when Robin sounded like he was yelling or being hyper. At times I couldn’t tell the difference. It made me lose the sense … Continue reading

Another Lesbian vs. Zombie short story I’ve enjoyed. Dee found out Ginny is in trouble and she wants to save her from the zombies. She has to go back to the University she once swears she wouldn’t ever go back two years ago. Like a common reason, love conquers it all. The opening actually took me a while to figure out what was going on. I wished the author … Continue reading

I am reviewing all three of the Forbidden books in one review because they appear to be a serial, each one being a chapter of the story.  They do NOT appear to be stand alone, and I went back and forth on what to rate them because as it stands with #3, Unexpected Storm, the story is unfinished, ending on a huge cliffhanger but the story to this point … Continue reading

Graveyard Greg – Unexpected Relationships

Another excellent book of anthropomorphic written by Graveyard Greg. I hope I assumed this correctly, this is a prequel to webcomic called Carpe Diem and you can find them on cdcomic.com. This time, it’s a “soap opera” of different animals happening at a gym owned by Burt. Burt is a Panda and I could imagine Burt is a hot bear guy. Kevin is a tiger who is a bit … Continue reading
