Reviewed by: Valentina
Publisher: Torquere Press
Genre: M/M BDSM
ISBN 13:  9781610403672

Summary: Mischa isn’t stupid; he knows that happily ever afters only happen in fairytales. Still, he had thought that as soon as Tom got over the horrible assault that almost tore them apart, everything would be better. Perhaps not fairytale happy right away, but better. Instead, they seem to be falling apart, and quite spectacularly so.

What Mischa hadn’t taken into account was the fact that violence have longtime consequences – … Continue reading

Simone Anderson – Line of Fire

Publisher: Resplendence Publishing
Genre: M/M
ISBN 13:   9781607355106

This was a strange book for me. Not because of some weird events or unusual characters, but rather because the story fluctuated so much that at times I wanted to rate it with four stars only to change my mind minutes later and lean toward two stars.

Both Christian and Hayden are SEALs. They know each other although their relationship is rather vague before they meet in a gay bar and start … Continue reading

Caitlin Ricci – Almost Paradise (Pine Hollow Wolves #1)

Author: Caitlin Ricci
Reviewed by: Valentina
Publisher: Silver Publishing
Genre: M/M Contemporary
ISBN 13:  9781614956327

Almost Paradise drew me in with its interesting cover and intriguing blurb. Most of us, when we see the main character is a parent, jump right into the story, and lately we just hope for the best. This one also has shifters and financial trouble that in my experience tends to make things interesting, so I pretty much had to read it.

As the blurb says, Travis has been through a lot … Continue reading

S.J. Frost – Heartstrings

Author: S.J. Frost
Reviewed by: Valentina
Publisher: MLR Press
Genre: M/M Contemporary
ISBN 13: 9781608206629

It does seem to be my issue first and foremost, but from some authors I do expect more. I was a sworn fan of the Conquest series, for the first two books at least, and there wasn’t a soul who didn’t receive that recommendation from me at the time. I honestly LOVED the relationships, the music and the beautiful writing. But as I kept on reading further, the magic seemed … Continue reading

Susan Laine – Twice by Chance

Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Genre: MM Contemporary
ISBN 13: 9781613724675

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

Berengaria Brown – Suck it up

Author: Berengaria Brown
Reviewed by: Valentina Heart
Publisher: Torquere Press
Genre: M/M/M
ISBN 13: NA

I had no idea this was a ménage because I apparently don’t pay enough attention to the blurbs, but for me that was a pleasant surprise. The beginning where it was still more about telling then showing, I was really having fun with the way Taylor saw the team building day. He was probably the most fun for me of the three guys but his bitchy attitude didn’t flow into … Continue reading

Vic Winter – The Cabin

Author: Vic Winter
Reviewed by: Valentina
Publisher: Torquere Press
Genre: MM Contemporary
ISBN 13: NA

I am one of Vic’s fans, no point in denying it. Ever since I read Wheels I look at the name on my screen with something close to affection. Because when you come down to it, that’s exactly what Winter’s stories never lack – affection and deep caring. Somehow the word count doesn’t matter and be it ten pages or thirty, the author says precisely everything that needs to be … Continue reading
