I must admit that at first glance this story sounded very appealing to me. Vacation love, different setting and snowboarding? Well, yeah, bring it on. However, as I started reading, it didn’t take me long to change my mind.

Lasse and Marko meet at a ski resort, where Marko came with his brother and friend, their respected girlfriends and Kira who you can say had a ‘hard … Continue reading

Publisher: Silver Publishing
Genre: M/M Paranormal

I guess that I was expecting a lot from this book and so turned the last page disappointed.  Hex Phoenix has been the mythical phoenix for over seven thousand years now.  He should technically go up in flames and be reborn every five hundred years but some things got in the way.  He met his lover, Urbain,  hundreds of years ago when he was going under the name Durand.  Urbain … Continue reading

Genre: MM Contemporary

I have to admit that I am at a bit of a loss on what to say about this book. I think that some of the confusion that I feel is because I feel like I am missing important information that was left out of the story. The book opens with Rylan having lunch with Shane, his former sparring partner when Shane was a champion fighter.  Shane is … Continue reading

I have not read a book that was this dull in a long time.  The ten Archangels are out to save earth and keep it a neutral place between heaven and hell.  The Brotherhood meets all together every thousand years to catch up on what’s been going on but this time Michael drops off his report and beats a hasty retreat.  Michael has been acting a little weird the past couple thousand … Continue reading

Lynn Lorenz – Tor (WereWolf Fight League #1)

Author: Lynn Lorenz
Reviewed by: Maya
Publisher: Loose-ID
Genre:
MM Paranormal
ISBN 13: NA

 Despite the warning in the blurb, this is not a dark and gritty read. The first chapter does have about two paragraphs that were difficult and the rest of the book is pretty angst free. As a matter of fact, it is quite fluffy in some portions of this book. 

Tor’s mate is raped and killed in front of him by an insane challenger and he loses his will … Continue reading

Genre: MM Contemporary

I don’t know how to describe this book. If I had to call it anything, I’d label it a psychosexual-suspense thriller that is also part cop-buddy comedy. I know. Weird. But it works. Oh, does it work.

Someone is stalking young prostitute Sean Andros and killing people, trying to frame him for the crimes, while at the same time hunting the hustler like a mad rabbit for reasons … Continue reading

This intriguing short novella was a mind numbing ride through lies, deceit and murder that at times twisted reality.  Meldrick was the king’s most favored knight until he was captured in a raid in the war between humans and ogres and taken captive.  The ogres did everything to try to break Meldrick from torturing and raping him to forcing him to beat and rape his own men or watch them die.  Meldrick has a … Continue reading

In this short follow up to Outfoxed, we revisit Gage and Rylan, band members of the group Glitter Fox, band mates, best friends and lovers.  They aren’t exclusive, often bringing a third person in, and they are very aware of what they consider to be “manly” or not.  Anything romantic? Well, we don’t admit it makes our hearts pitter pat.  Even though both men, in their thoughts, want more from the … Continue reading
