Pictures of You – ’90s Coming of Age #1
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…

Bookreview / October 19, 2016

Behind Closet Doors by L.A. Witt is a collection of four stories that all have one thing in common. 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. A pair of musicians who can’t keep their hands off each other. And all of the men are more than willing and able to fight for their new found love, no matter what the outside world may think of it. This collection contains four stories, all full length and very well written. The titles are For The Living, From Out in the Cold, Where There’s Smoke, With the Band and all of them have been published before and are for sale separately. I love reading stories about coming out and about unlikely couples coming together and fighting for what they want against all odds. I have read L.A. Witt before and she has never before let me down and of course…

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…

Doc Brodie and the Big, Purple Cat Toy
Bookreview / October 7, 2016

Doc Brodie and the Big, Purple Cat Toy by Brigham Vaughn is a book that I bought purely because of the title and the small blurb that I read. That alone made me laugh out loud so I knew the book had to be good. And it was, it really was. Grant Murchison is a shy computer programmer with a very naughty cat called Molly. Grant loves Molly to death so when she gets hold of his favorite purple sex toy and nibbles at it, he needs to take her to the vet. Brodie Hall is a vet and he absolutely loves animals. His arms are covered in tattoos and he owns a dog called Ruby. So when Grant comes rushing in and is very embarrassed to admit the reason the cat is so sick, Brodie is instantly attracted to the cats owner and wants to know more. Brodie decides to pursue Grant, but finds that it is very difficult to get close to him. Grant has been hurt in the past and is now very careful not to get burned again. Will Brodie find the way to Grants heart? Now I know the story isn’t very deep and the…

Spy Stuff
Bookreview / October 6, 2016

Spy Stuff by Matthew J Metzger is actually the first story I ever read that has a transgender character in the main lead. And I can tell you, I loved it. It broke my hear, made me laugh and cry and I just could not stop reading it until the very end. Absolute brilliance. Anton is transgender, he was born a girl and is now a boy. And because of that he thinks he will never be loved by anyone. After all, who would want a transgender boyfriend. He can hide it only for so long, but as soon as someone finds out they run for the hills. Until there is someone that doesn’t. Jude Kalinowski is as straight as they come, or so Anton always thought. Very very attractive for sure, but someone like Jude would never go for him. But when Jude does ask him out, Anton doesn’t know what to do. At some point he will have to tell the truth, but is there ever a good time to do that? And what will happen when Jude finds out what Anton is hiding? Anton slowly relaxed as Jude started to brighten up and just … talk. Jude…

Why Love Matters
Bookreview / September 12, 2016

Why Love Matters is a new story by one of my all time favorite authors Jay Northcote. I automatically buy whatever she puts out, because I know it will be good. And once again I was not disappointed with this one. Alastair is about to make a very big business deal, but there is only one problem. The deal is with Italians and they prefer much more physical contact than just a simple handshake. And if there is one thing Alastair just cannot stand it is physical contact with anyone else. Martin, his faithful assistant offers the solution to this problem. His mother runs a place with specific workshops to help people with these kind of issues. Will Alastair be brave enough to try? Alastair is not only nervous about the workshop but also about spending the night with Martin in the same room. Because his assistant has been in more of his fantasies than he should be. So when the two men drive up to the estate and enter the workshop, they both might come out very different. I don’t know what it is about Northcote books, but they just get to me every single time. I could totally…
