This was a nice piece of fluff for an after dinner read.  Shawn made a wish on what he thought was a star when he was six.  What he didn’t realize at that young age was that his star was a space ship.  The ship came and checked up on Shawn again when he was twelve and again when he was eighteen.  Shawn’s parents found out that he … Continue reading

He trusts no one and lets no one get close to him. Fear, anger, nightmares, drugs and alcohol are his life. Gabriel hits a bar one night and meets Laurie who is an odd man himself. Laurie seems to have many friends … Continue reading

Ashlynn Monroe – Eternal Commitments

Genre: M/F Paranormal
ISBN 13: 9781465982452

 

Eternal Commitments is an anthology of three short stories by the same author, each focusing on an interaction between a human and a vampire. The stories are all very short, giving just the beginning chapter of each couple’s story.

The first, Eternal Commitments Part One and Part two, is my absolute favorite.  Separately, I think I’d have given this a 5 because it was different from the usual … Continue reading

Julie Lynn Hayes – Forbidden 1, 2, 3 (Sanctum, Secret Blessings, Unexpected Storm)

Author: Julie Lynn Hayes
Reviewed by: Lucy
Publisher: Romance First Publishing
Genre: M/M Contemporary
ISBN 13: 9781452498836

 

I am reviewing all three of the Forbidden books in one review because they appear to be a serial, each one being a chapter of the story.  They do NOT appear to be stand alone, and I went back and forth on what to rate them because as it stands with #3, Unexpected Storm, the story is unfinished, ending on a huge cliffhanger but the story to this point … Continue reading
