Louder Than Words – More Than Words #2
Bookreview / October 24, 2016

Louder Than Words is part 2 or part 3 in the series, depending on which series you read. Somewhere along the line a very confusing renumbering has taken places and now I am somewhat lost as to which part goes where exactly. Maybe a little more explanation would have been in order. But since I love this series so much I still knew I had to read this one. Alex survived a turbulent few months. Getting out of an abusive house, finding a new boyfriend and moving in with said boyfriend. He finally manages to find some peace and quiet and is able to think about what he wants from life. But there is only one thing his boyfriend Andreas has always wanted, to be a cop. He wants to make sure no kid ever has to be in the same situation he was in and he thinks being a cop makes that possible. But to become a cop he has to spend a year in the army, far away from home and from Alex. Will their very new relationship be able to survive that? And what will Alex do when Andreas is so far away? You can find TT…

Blogtour , Bookreview / October 23, 2016

This book was send to me as an ARC and a request for a review, so here it is guys. First of all, as you all know I love stories that play in high school and coming of age stories, so I had high hopes for this one going by the title alone. And I was not disappointed. Peter Mandel is 18 and very private. He is a photography freak and can always be seen with a camera around his neck or close at hand. He is gay but prefers to keep it a secret to everyone. But when Adam Algedi joins the class for the senior year everything changes for Peter. Adam makes it very clear that he wants Peter, but it can never be out in the open. At home behind closed doors they can do whatever they want, but outside they can only be friends and nothing more. And so begins a journey of first love, first sex and a lot of secrets. Sometimes Peter has enough of all the secrets and just wants Adam to be open about their relation, but Adam always manages to talk him out of it. But when Adam gets a girlfriend…

About Bluewater Blues Jack Daley left his music career behind—along with his domineering father—and is struggling to make a new life for himself and his autistic sister in Bluewater Bay. When a summer storm sweeps a handsome stranger into his general store, Jack is more than ready for a fling. No strings attached, because Jack can’t share the secrets he and his sister are hiding from. Unfortunately, his feelings refuse to stay casual. Mark Keao is married to his job as a costume designer on Wolf’s Landing. He’s autistic, so he’s used to people not knowing how to interact with him, but that doesn’t mean he wants to be a hermit. Especially when he meets Jack Daley, who dances with brooms, shares his love of the blues, and gets him like no one else. But relationships have proven complicated in the past. Just when Mark is ready to try anyway, Jack pulls back. But Mark isn’t giving up, and neither is Jack’s sister. And then there’s the music both men love, bringing them together time and again. It will take trust, though, to bring them together for good.

Four couples from totally different worlds, all falling in love with someone and not only trying to make it work but also coming out to friends and family. Will they be able to make it work? A closeted politician and his smoking hot campaign manager. Two traumatized best friends who need each other more than ever. A grieving widower and a compassionate funeral director.

Astronomical – Astronomers #1
Bookreview / October 18, 2016

Astronomical by Silvia Violet is the first part in a new series, called Astronomers. Guessing from the title all the books will have something to do with Astronomy, but we will have to wait for part 2 to be sure. In this first part we meet Blake Theriot. He is a research librarian and very very shy. He likes things to be done a certain way and have everything in a specific order. If something goes against his wishes it upsets him very much. So when Greg MacIntyre moves in next door, Blakes life will never be the same again. Greg is very sexy, wears a kilt and is everything Blake has ever dreamed about in a man. Strong, muscular and very hot. But what can he do to make Greg see him for what he is and what he wants. Every time he comes near the man his speech becomes impaired and he can’t say a normal word. It takes a few shots of whiskey to give him the courage to speak his mind, but will it be enough? I enjoyed this book very much, I could relate to the characters and was pleasantly surprised by how easy the…
