About The Long Way Around Sam Cooper is the definition of an introvert: shy, bookish, and the sort to think a wild Friday night involves ordering takeout. He enjoys his quiet life, but after a bad breakup, he’s been yearning for a change of scenery. Luckily, his best friend and former college roommate has the solution. Wesley Reed—a jokester and expert Sam-handler—proposes an epic road trip to a wedding across the country. They’re both between jobs and boyfriends. Why not hit the open road and make some memories? Stuck in close quarters for the first time since their dorm days, they’re both surprised at the heat that springs up between them. As best friends, they’ve shared so much over the years, so why does sharing a hotel room—and occasionally a bed—make…

Taught by Master Salvatore Moretti, and with walking papers in hand, Santo is determined to turn the family name around and distance it from the drugs and prostitution his father’s legacy is built on.

Bedside Manner – Hearts and Health #2
Bookreview / July 22, 2018

Bedside Manner is part 2 in the Hearts and Health series by D.J. Jamison. My blog about part 1 can be found here. As with part 1, part 2 is also centred around a hospital and has medical characters in it. Zane Kavanaugh (best friend to Ben, who we met in part 1) is attacked in the street one day and ends up in hospital for a few days. Since he came out as gay his family doesn’t want anything to do with him anymore, so he is quite alone in the hospital. But when Dr. Paul Johnston enters the room, Zane has a completely new thing to think about. Paul has the most wonderful dark eyes and they leave Zane al flushed. Paul doesn’t want to fall for a patient, especially since he is already in trouble after receiving a complaint against him for behaving out of line. Recently divorced, just out as a gay  man, he is still very fragile and careful. He knows he would never do anything wrong, but he just can’t get a certain patient out of his head. So when Paul and Zane meet outside the hospital, what could possibly go wrong? Paul has…

The Little Things
Bookreview / July 21, 2018

I have actually blogged about this book before right here but it has now been republished with a different cover. The story is still the same, it’s only the cover that has changed. The story was already heartbreaking in 2015, but in 2018 it is just as heartbreaking. I just could not finish this story without a few tears in my eyes, and that means it is a very good story. Joel is gay, but a one night drunken affair with his best friend makes him a father and he loves his little girl Evie very much. Shared custody with Claire makes sure he sees Evie a lot and they are enjoying life. Joel even has a boyfriend Dan, so could life be any better? Then one night misfortune strikes and leaves Evie without a mother and now permanently in the care of Joel, who has to learn to live without his best friend. His relationship with Dan is strained, but he needs to put his daughter first, even before Dan. In the end their relationship cracks and they both decide it is best to separate. So now Joel is alone with his daughter and has to adjust to a new…

Sink or Swim
Blogtour , Bookteaser / July 19, 2018

About Sink or Swim When need meets fear, can two very different men find common ground? Alhazar Bukhari spent his Navy career in the closet. Now he’s retired, divorced, and hungry for the love he’s never had a chance to experience. He tries to put his faith in Allah to bring the right man into his life, but it’s hard to be patient after all this time. Chaplain Dylan Pedersen spends his days counseling Sailors, and his nights with men he doesn’t know. Months after finally escaping an abusive relationship, he’s terrified of anything more than a physical connection. Maybe it’s a sin, but he’s too lonely to not let men into his bed, and too scared to let them into his heart. When Alhazar’s civilian job brings him aboard the USS Fort Stevens, and his daily prayers bring him into Dylan’s chapel, the chemistry is instantaneous. Sex and friendship quickly evolve into more, but Dylan’s too haunted by his recent past to be the man Alhazar wants. Alhazar needs love, Dylan needs time, and if they can’t find some sort of balance, they’ll sink before they ever have a chance to swim. About Anchor Point Welcome to Anchor Point!…

Second Chance
Bookreview / July 15, 2018

Second Chance by Jay Northcote is a new book by one of the greatest authors I know. Every single thing he publishes is an automatic buy for me. This book was no difference, but it was given to me as an eARC. It is not autobiographical, but because of the subject could be considered somewhat personal. Title: Second Chance Author: Jay Northcote Publisher: Jaybird Press (self published) Length: 67,000 words approx Genre: contemporary m/m romance, transgender Cover Artist: Garrett Leigh Release Date: Friday 20th April 2018 Series info: This book is a standalone Blurb Everyone deserves a second chance. Nate and his teenage daughter need a fresh start, so they move back to the village where he grew up. Nate’s transgender, and not used to disclosing his history, so it’s hard living where people knew him before. When Nate reconnects with Jack—his best friend from school and unrequited crush—his feelings return as strong as ever. Jack’s returned home to get his life in order after an addiction to alcohol caused him to lose everything: his job, his driver’s licence, and nearly his life. He’s living with his parents, which is less than ideal, but rekindling his friendship with Nate—or Nat…
