What a beautiful and heart wrenching love story this was.  It was good to see just how far society has evolved toward gay love.  Set in 1914 just at the start of World War I we see a lack of tolerance toward anyone not joining in the war effort.  David is a postal clerk trying to walk the straight and narrow.  He looks up from his window at the Post … Continue reading

Right away, at the very prologue, I was riveted to my seat with eyes firmly focused on the screen and the freaking hot scene happening at the back of a taxi. Addy experienced a life changing moment as he watched one man debauch the other in the most sexiest of ways. The gorgeous stranger even while dressed captivated Addy, and became the driving force behind his future fantasies. A stranger … Continue reading

I fought my way through the first two hundred pages of this book and got teary at times in the last one hundred pages. I think is was just a little bit too much of a good thing that made me feel like I was re-reading Bear, Otter and the Kid which I loved the first time. This book picked up right where the last one left … Continue reading

Woo Hoo!!!! Lee James did it again! The author of the short story, A Crack In Time, (which I had the pleasure of reading and reviewing), made me a happy gal with his m/ m mystery novel, Errors And Omissions. Vastly different from A Crack In Time, Errors takes place in present day, Los Angeles, where Kirk MacGregor, a soon-to-be-divorced gay man, works as a detective in his father’s law … Continue reading

Take a flirty, Twink-ish bartender/cosmetology student named Rue (do NOT call him Rufus, or Underoo for that matter) who got very drunk one night and had sex with a girl.  Add in said girl’s pregnancy with no inclination whatsoever to keep the baby.  Spin well with a nerdy, neurotic, sorta-out-there, Star Wars obsessed writer named Erik.  For extra dash, add in an amazing best friend named Dusty (Uncle Dustpan). … Continue reading

This book is the first in what I am hoping will be a great series.  Ms Kasey gave me everything that I could ask for when I sit down to read a fantasy story from vampires to witches to shape shifters.  The Dominion is a society of witches dominated almost entirely by women.  Seiran is a young male witch with powerful earth magic born into a prominent Dominion family.  … Continue reading
