Silvia Violet – Abandoned

Publisher: Silver Publishing
Genre: M/M Erotica
ISBN 13: 9781614952350

 

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

Lichen Craig – Gentleman’s Game

Author: Lichen Craig
Reviewer: Don
Publisher: Self Published
Genre: M/M BDSM
ISBN 13: 9781470003289

 

I was given a copy of this book by the author to read and review.  I must say as a preface to my review that the blurb on Goodreads, written by the author I assume, was very deceptive.  This book contains a very graphic and very violent scene of rape and torture so readers beware.

I have enjoyed many BDSM books but this one left me bothered mostly because I did not … Continue reading

I was happily surprised at how good this book was.  I was expecting an over sexed coming out story and got so much more.  Brad is a college jock who’s trying to play the expected straight life by dating a lot of girls and letting everyone think he’s a super stud.  His fraternity brothers hold him in awe because of his conquests and girls date him just for … 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

I was looking for a nice feel good love story after a short fantasy binge and came across this book.  It almost fit the bill but I was turned off by the love at first sight aspect.  Lyric Spencer is a poor young ex-rich guy that has been disowned by his parents for a scandal with a married man and the man’s subsequent suicide.  Lyric drifts from … Continue reading

This short story combined both one of my favorite and one of my pet peeves in the romance genre.  I am such a fan of friends to lovers stories.  I love when people actually get past their misconceptions and miscommunication and manage to be true to each other.   That being said, there must be some actual communication going on, a story behind them getting together.  The “you hurt me terribly … Continue reading

Genre: M/M Contemporary

Okay, definitely had some niggles with this story.  The biggest one was that while I liked the story once it got going, it is all based on the fact that Joey, who is completely and utterly overprotective and overthinks everything, trusts leaving his new niece Abby to a veritable stranger, someone he has just met.   That was difficult to overcome, since for the rest of the story there are numerous examples … Continue reading
