This holiday offering was read by me on a warm March day, which detracted not a bit from how much I liked it. There is a sadness to part of it, as Gil struggles to balance his love for Morgan, his best friend, partner and lover, with his about to move in teenaged children accepting that he is gay and that Morgan isn’t just his buddy.

To try to do this, … Continue reading

Sean Michael – Don’t Ask Don’t Tell

Author: Sean Michael
Reviewer: Don
Publisher: Torquere Press
Genre: M/M Erotica
ISBN 13: 2940000095256

This is the first book in a terrific series that follows first two then three men through their lives together. I started the series with book four so this book told me how Rock and Rigger met in Texas and got together as a couple. The series is strictly erotica with a thin but captivating story line. Don’t look for more that a tremendous amount of sex and a little … Continue reading

Oh Simeon.  What can I say about you, other than I wish this short story had been five times longer.  I loved him.  He is a half-gargoyle who places protection spells over locations.  In this specific case, it is a Victorian house.  A house that he has wanted for his own for years, a house he had been saving to purchase, hoping to share with Brice, the man he … Continue reading

Jadette Paige – Blue Heaven

Author: Jadette Paige
Reviewer: Don
Publisher: Siren Publishing
Genre: M/M Fantasy
ISBN 13:9781610340113

 

This book is Jadette Paige’s first foray into the m/m genre and she pulled it off brilliantly.  The only warning to the reader is that the first few chapters seemed long and a bit dull but that was done purposely as you will find as the story unfolds.  Gods are born to human parents in this world and then are taken by the church to be trained and cared for.  … Continue reading

Rick Mofina – The Burning Edge

Author: Rick Mofina
Reviewer: Mallory
Publisher: Mira Books
Genre: M/F Mystery-Thriller
ISBN 13: 9780778313014

 

A novel by Rick Mofina is a joy to behold, and this one is no exception. Opening like a runaway train, the excitement never stops; and this accomplished, prolific author manages to weave in so many levels that all the characters are fully three-dimensional, realistic, and if not always likable, at least comprehensible. His plotting takes in contemporary society, recent history, and even suspicions of terrorism. Mr. Mofina always manages … Continue reading

Jerry W. McKinney – In Extremis

Author: Jerry W. McKinney
Reviewer: Sean
Publisher: Self-Published
Genre: Horror
ISBN 13: N/A

 

Wow, what an interesting zombie book. It was different from any other zombie stories I’ve read in the past. I’m giving it 3.5 out of 5 because it needed to be longer. Jerry McKinney still finds a way to make me feel spooked while reading it, especially the ending, it was so strange. It left me million questions. Still a good recommendation for zombie fan who wants a short and quick … Continue reading

Publisher: Self-Published

Well, for a short horror story, this certainly gave me a spook. The author really did it well to make me feel sorry for the characters in the book. It easily got me hooked to the book from the first page to the last page. It still left me many questions because I want to know what really happens in future.  The story tells of a lovely married couple that are tight … Continue reading

Ashlynn Monroe – Eternal Commitments

Publisher: Romance First Publishing
Genre: M/F Paranormal
ISBN 13: 9781465982452

 

Eternal Commitments is an anthology of three short stories by the same author, each focusing on an interaction between a human and a vampire. The stories are all very short, giving just the beginning chapter of each couple’s story.

The first, Eternal Commitments Part One and Part two, is my absolute favorite.  Separately, I think I’d have given this a 5 because it was different from the usual … Continue reading
