Patchwork Paradise
Blogtour , Bookteaser / March 29, 2016

About Patchwork Paradise Oliver and Samuel’s relationship is fairy-tale perfect. They share a gorgeous house in Antwerp, go out with their friends every weekend, and count down the days to their dream wedding. But their happy ending is shattered one late night, and just like that, Ollie is left bereft and alone. The months that follow are long and dark, but slowly Ollie emerges from his grief. He even braves the waters of online dating, though deep down he doesn’t believe he can find that connection again. He doesn’t think to look for love right in front of him: his bisexual friend Thomas, the gentle giant with a kind heart and sad eyes who’s wanted him all along. When Thomas suddenly discovers he has a son who needs him, he’s ill prepared. Ollie opens up his house—Sam’s house—and lets them in. Ollie doesn’t know what scares him more: the responsibility of caring for a baby, or the way Thomas is steadily winning his heart. It will take all the courage he has to discover whether or not fairy tales can happen for real.

Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda
Bookreview / March 24, 2016

Simon vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda is one of those books no one has ever heard about, but all of a sudden the book is a big hit and it seems the whole world is reading it at the same time.

He has no idea who the boy is but he has confessed quite a lot in those e-mails. So when they fall in to the wrong hands trouble might be around the corner. Martin knows about the mails Simon has been sending and is now blackmailing him into playing his wing man or else…. And worse of all, Blue’s privacy will also be compromised. Simon has no idea what to do now. His contact with Blue is getting more and more flirty…

Bookreview / March 22, 2016

Now as we all know I am a long time fan of the Bend or Break series, ever since part 1. And the more we get, the better they get. Love Me Like a Rock is part 6 in the series and tells the story of Austin (and a little Vinnie) who we already met in Level Hands). Amy Jo Cousins just keeps on writing one perfect story after another and it makes me fall more and more in love with these books and characters. So when I had the chance of reading parts 6 and 7 as an ARC I jumped at the chance and promised to write a review about them. So here they are….. Austin is an artist and always has been. Whatever his eyes see, his hands create. But there is one thing that keeps bothering him. He has a thing for his best friend Vinnie, who he occasionally hooks up with. He is hoping it will turn out into more, but Vinnie doesn’t seem to be interested in anything more. Austin gets more and more frustrated, but what can he do? At an evening drawing class he meets Sean, the naked male model in front…

Trailer Trash is the new novel by Marie Sexton and together with Riptide Publishing she has asked me to promote the novel and let you all know how great I think it is. I urge you all to buy the story and read it when you can because it is great ! Hello, everybody. I’m Marie Sexton, and I’m thrilled to be here today talking about my New Adult novel, Trailer Trash. Trailer Trash is the story of two high school seniors – Cody, the poor kid from the wrong side of the tracks, and Nate, the new kid in town. It’s set in the fictional town of Warren, Wyoming in the mid-1980s. I spent the first eleven years of my life in a small town in Wyoming. Granted, my hometown wasn’t anywhere near as small or as isolated as Warren. Still, I don’t miss it much. But in writing Trailer Trash, I found myself pulling out some of my favorite parts of my hometown and putting them into Warren. The first thing I pulled from my hometown was the Chinese restaurant on Front Street. Their rice was ham-fried (not regular old “pork-fried”), and each table had its own little…
