Mercy Celeste – Beyond Complicated

Author: Mercy Celeste

Genre
:  MM Menage
ISBN 13: 9781614952756

This was my second book by Mercy Celeste and since I absolutely loved Behind Iron Lace plus this was a menage, there was no way in hell I was skipping it. Being the kinky sort, the incest part of the story that was hinted at by the cover and the blurb did wonders when it came to my interest and eagerly expecting this book doesn’t even come close. Mercy … Continue reading

I must admit that at first glance this story sounded very appealing to me. Vacation love, different setting and snowboarding? Well, yeah, bring it on. However, as I started reading, it didn’t take me long to change my mind.

Lasse and Marko meet at a ski resort, where Marko came with his brother and friend, their respected girlfriends and Kira who you can say had a ‘hard … Continue reading

John is a detective who hits a wolf with his car while rushing to the rescue of his lover who has a history of suicide threats. But during the accident something … Continue reading

This was not my first book by Mrs. Snow and while good, it couldn’t measure up with some of the others I have read. The writing was decent and the possibilities endless. From the overall setting and the likeability of characters I had expected much more.

Paul is a man in debt who’s had financial trouble since his parents had died in an accident. His two best friends, James … Continue reading

Olivia Brynn – Flipped

Genre: MM Contemporary

Flipped is a short story about two tops best friends who suddenly realize there is more between them than their friendship.

Mario and Carter bought a house to flip, but while a part of the book, their occupation isn’t all that relevant. To me the most interesting aspect of this story was the relationship between the guys. Their friendship seemed really solid, and their jokes funny enough to have … Continue reading

J.M. Snyder – Must Love Cats

Genre: MM Paranormal
ISBN 13: 9781611522518

If it’s got shifters in it, I’ll most likely read it. Yes, I’m easily hooked, just like that. This little story seemed interesting primarily because the shifter was a cat. An orange cat at that and I’m pretty sure I would be a cat lady given a chance. So this story seemed perfect for me, and now, after I’ve finished it, I still think the same.

Dale is … Continue reading

This was such a summer read and with the weather getting warmer over here it somehow fit the bill. It’s a romantic story about Greg and Justin, who meet at a party and spend a week together.

Justin came from New York for a spring-break and to check out a graduate program on Hawaii. Greg is a workaholic who’s past the partying stage and really just wants some ‘hot’ company. The two … Continue reading

This is my second story by Erica Pike, but if I hadn’t read the first one I probably never would have dared to read A Life Without You, not to mention the cover that really just puts me off.

Jesse and Adam are roommates at college and while Adam is gay, Jesse has a fiancé back home and is adamantly refusing to give up his dream of marriage and kids despite … Continue reading

Ménages are something I truly enjoy reading about, but those are also some of the stories that are most difficult to write. How do you make it work three-way without giving the impression of distancing one of the characters? Some authors are brilliant when it comes to creating unbreakable emotional ties and making the sexual aspect of their relationship a side thing. I more than found what I … Continue reading
