This is my second story by Erica Pike, but if I hadn’t read the first one I probably never would have dared to read A Life Without You, not to mention the cover that really just puts me off.

Jesse and Adam are roommates at college and while Adam is gay, Jesse has a fiancé back home and is adamantly refusing to give up his dream of marriage and kids despite … Continue reading

I started this book feeling somewhat discouraged by the year the book was set in, but that only lasted as long as it took me to meet William. He was somewhat dangerous with a wicked sense of humor and a fast mind. He didn’t settle for the norm and despite having an eventful past and considering himself mostly retired from such life, he was still larger than the stuffed mold … Continue reading

Erica Pike – A Grade-A-Sex Deal (College Fun and Gays #2)


Author: Erica Pike
Reviewed by: Lucy
Publisher: No Boundaries Press
Genre: M/M Contemporary
ISBN 13: NA

I was incredibly leery about reading this one, because the idea of trading sex for a grade didn’t seem like it would leave room for a story, it would be more of a PWP (porn without plot) kind of thing.  I was happily surprised to realize there was a very decent story arc here.  I do wish the story had been longer (it’s very short), because Daniel … Continue reading

Holy hell, we have all had days like this!  A big difference between most people and Alex Bell however is the fact that he budgets in time to compensate for the cat jumping into the fishtank, being unable to find matching socks and locking your keys in the house.  He is an over-preparer, and a bit OCD.

D.J. Manly is a fantastic author; his writing is excellent the words flow so well that I am a bit disappointed when I come to the end of his books. The author’s character description is written well you always have enough to know who the characters are.   The plot descriptions are also written well, they are not overdone and you can always tell what is going on in each scene in his … Continue reading
