This is a short story from the Less Than Three Valentine bundle.  This is a fantasy story that seemed historical when I first started reading, until I realized Kennet was reading the newspaper, so not as medieval as I thought.  Kennet’s best friend is Brennar, who also happens to be Kennet’s secret love. Brennar is the heir to an estate, and to add to his gloriousness, he is chosen as the … Continue reading

This is a super short revisit to Cassidy and Malcolm, the incredibly lovely couple from Missing Butterfly.  I wish wish wish this had been longer, because it was so great to revisit these guys.

In this little vignette, a slimebag musician named Beckett has engineered a photo op for paparazzi at a charity event;  he shoves his tongue down Cassidy’s throat while cameras click.  He does it for publicity, not … Continue reading

This was a decent Sci-Fi story with great world building. I found the blurb to be misleading in the fact the a majority of this story focused on  a second set of MC’s.  I think that they were more fleshed out and therefore more interesting. I had some difficulty connecting with either set of MC’s too much due to the constant POV shifts. Overall, it was an … Continue reading

Anike finds the brothers to be fascinating since he has never seen their race, with long faces with sharply slanted features, their oval irises and slightly iridescent skin. This book had so much unrealized potential. It is very short and … Continue reading

I must say this story just did not work for me. It had some good characters in it, but just never made  me stand up and take notice. I would have to say the one thing I did take out of this book, is that well your a man or woman everyone needs a friend even on Valentine’s Day.

It was a quick read and … Continue reading

This story really could have been longer and filled in some backstory, but as it was, I found it light and sweet.  Luke is supposed to be finding out if Josh, big giant rugby player, is gay, and if he is not, Luke is supposed to ask him if he would go out with Luke’s friend, Emmy.  What emo-looking Luke does instead is basically shout out, … Continue reading
