Lex Valentine – Kissing Joan Collins

Author: Lex Valentine
Reviewed by: Lucy
Publisher: MLR Press
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

Graveyard Greg – Unexpected Relationships

Author: Graveyard Greg

Publisher: Smashwords
Genre: M/M Romance / Anthropomorphic
ISBN 13: N/A


Another excellent book of anthropomorphic written by Graveyard Greg. I hope I assumed this correctly, this is a prequel to webcomic called Carpe Diem and you can find them on cdcomic.com. This time, it’s a “soap opera” of different animals happening at a gym owned by Burt. Burt is a Panda and I could imagine Burt is a hot bear guy. Kevin is a tiger who is a bit … Continue reading

Graveyard Greg – Wish Fulfillment

Reviewer: Sean
Publisher: Smashwords
Genre: M/M Urban Fantasy / Anthropomorphic
ISBN 13: N/A


It is very short story ending at approximately 4k words. It was only 9 pages on my iPad’s iBook. I absolutely love this story. It’s different from what I normally read and the first book that is anthropomorphic. At first, I didn’t know the characters were anthropomorphic. I didn’t read the blurb as clearly as I was supposed to before I read. It’s a genie that … Continue reading

I love a good fantasy story but unfortunately this book started off bad and just got worse.  Ms Stephens has potential as an author and with some skill sharpening may one day be a good author.

Dean Ryder is an ex-cop turned private investigator.  He is fairly insecure because his family does not approve of his line of work.  The story opens with Dean in the hospital recovering from a gun shot … Continue reading

Since the only other thing I have read by Mr. Reed was IM, which scared the living hell out of me, I wasn’t sure how this one was going to go. Like Stephen King writing a love story, I thought. Stephen King should be so lucky.

Ethan is 42 years old, and all he wants is someone to come home to, share a life with.  He thought his job and … Continue reading

My, oh my.  I noticed this because of the title, and was lucky enough that this was such a lovely story.  I will admit, books about online lovers are a favorite genre of mine.  Something so delicious about getting to know someone completely based on words, and then seeing if the real life person is as good.

Piper Vaughn and MJ O’Shea – Moonlight Becomes You (Lucky Moon #1)

** 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

This book took me so much longer to read than normal, because I kept having to put it down. I’ve always been a big fan of horror/mystery books, but one just scared the hell out of me. At one point, I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to finish it. I had to have my hand held through the entire last half, and STILL put it down at least … Continue reading

I was going to give this a 4, due to drac…..errr….VINCENT. Denial to yourself is one thing, and its frustrating, but denial that hurts someone else, something I hate. I don’t care how old and powerful he is, Vincent is so caught up in “I can’t be” that he was downright annoying.  He is shopping for a new coffin lining for the annual Cotillion (that … Continue reading
