Helen Ayim – Fairy Night

Publisher: JMS Books LLC
Genre: Contemporary fantasy
ISBN 13: 9781611522778

 

The difficulty I had with this book is that I wasn’t sure what it was supposed to be.  Was it a friend story? A paranormal? A warning?  I read it twice and I’m still not sure.  It’s a very short story (27 pages on iPad) that deals with whether or not fairies have returned.  It is told in first person by Chris, who is very skeptical on whether fairies exist.  … Continue reading

Genre: M/M Contemporary
ISBN 13: 9781608206

 

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

Genre: M/M contemporary

“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

Sometimes you find a series that totally takes everything you’ve been told about vampires and turns it upside down and inside out. This is that series.  It is funny, romantic, loving, suspenseful and sexy as hell.

Meet Mårten Larsson, a naval officer in World War I.  Unfortunately for him, he happens to be in a blimp at the wrong place at the wrong time.  He is shot down over Germany and … Continue reading

This was not at all what I expected.  A pole dancing stripper who hurts his foot and ends up in the emergency room in his firefighter costume and sequined thong?  That practically screams PWP.  What we get instead is SO cute and very funny.

Matt is the pole dancer, who meets the radiographer assistant, Sal, while Sal is wearing froggy scrubs.  At the time, Matt is waiting for an x-ray and … Continue reading

Genre: M/M Mystery

I have been a fan of the Mahu series since it first came out and Detective Kimo Kanapa’aka was still in the closet.  Six books later Mr. Plakcy is still masterfully walking readers through Kimo’s life as he unravels homicides.  This story opens with Kimo and his detective partner Ray Donne working a case which looks like a home invasion gone wrong and a young mother is killed.  Further investigation reveals that the … Continue reading
