It is no secret that I am a fan of short stories and novellas. It is a difficult thing, to pack enough information into a short to make it seem complete without packing so much that the reader feels rushed with it all.  This Valentine’s Day short (40 pages on iPad) comes close to too much, but never crosses that line for me.   It was just enough.

Jeffrey is the type … Continue reading

First of all, love the cover.

Silvia Violet – Abandoned

Genre: M/M Erotica

Hot erotica with a very thin storyline filled the pages of this book.  Lark Zaccar and Derek Carlson were partners working for the Intergalactic Investigations Bureau when someone sets them up and Lark has to leave Derek behind on a hostile planet.  Lark cuts a deal with the IIB and is sent deep undercover on what seems to be a penal colony.  Derek was mindraped by the hostiles and lied to … Continue reading

Lex Valentine – Kissing Joan Collins

Genre: M/M Contemporary
ISBN 13: 9781608206049

 

This is a friends to lovers story, which is a genre I just love.  Add in an MC who is going to dress up in a tight 1980’s style dress to go to a party as, yes, Joan Collins, and we have a potential for a win.   This story is sweet, but misses a higher rating by just a little bit.

It is coming up on Valentine’s Day, and all the … Continue reading

** WARNING: spoiler alert ** I wavered between 4 and 5 for this. I was thinking 4 because it really needed more information on the backstory. Had I not read the prequel, I think I wouldn’t have understood the love between Jesse and Shane, which made what happened so much more painful. Ultimately I decided on a 5 because so very often, in stories of this kind, the betrayal happens.  … Continue reading
