Practice Makes Perfect – Housemates #3
Blogtour , Bookreview / June 22, 2016

Practice Makes Perfect is the third part in the Housemates series by Jay Northcote. After I read part 1 and part 2 I just knew I had to read part 3 also. And Jay was kind enough to grant me an ARC and I read it with great pleasure. As you all know Jay Northcote has been and always will be one of my all time favorite authors and she has never let me down. I read the whole thing in a few hours and it made me smile all the way through. Dev is a geeky first year student with zero sexual experience and very little experience with other people. After a bad episode in his previous house he has moved to a new house where people are more accepting and nice to him. He is determined to make his life better and therefore creates a list of things he wants to do soon. They include finding a boyfriend and getting more sexual experience. But how do you do that?

Boy Banned
Bookreview / June 18, 2016

Boy Banned is the new novel by R.J. Scott. I already participated in the blog tour, and I knew then I just had to read this one. And now that I finally did, I think a review is in order. The story starts at the finals of Sing UK, a fictional contest on TV, searching for the greatest talents in a contest on TV. Thin Idols, Britain’s Got Talent and you got the idea. Reuben “Angel” Jacobs is in the finals of the show, loosing this one will mean he has to return to the family business and be a good little boy. Everything he doesn’t want to be. Corey Dixon is a rocker and also “on the spectrum” as they call it. It means he has a lot of trouble to do things we all think are normal and he has a lot of trouble dealing with every day life. Both boys manage to mess up their auditions and are sent home, but in the last moment the judges save them. If they are willing to participate in a boy band they might just make a chance. So Reuben, Corey and three other boys are put together and need…

Rock Stars Are Trouble – Hooch in Hades 1
Bookreview / June 17, 2016

Rock Stars Are Trouble is a novel by Kelly D. Smith and apparently part 1 in the Hooch in Hades series.. Smith that she requested me to read and review. It is not a book I would normally read, but I did and I liked it. There is no man on man action here, we are dealing with a straight couple here. It kind of reminded me a little bit of Fifty Shades of Grey, minus the SM stuff. But a nice story it is…. Kenda Lexan is a writer for a popular music blog, but she has to write something good or her job is on the line. She needs the money real bad and cannot afford to loose this, so she is looking for a great story. And thats when she meets Greyson Brant, a singer in an upcoming rock band. It just might be her big chance, but she knows from experience that rock singers are only trouble. But when she finally meets Greyson, he turns out to be very different. He is actually nice to his fans and doesn’t live up to the rock star image at all. And he is seriously flirting with her. Kenda…

Rhythm & Blues
Bookreview / June 15, 2016

Rhythm & Blues is the new novel by Shae Connor. Not too long ago I participated in the blogtour for this book, this time I actually read the book. And I must say, it wasn’t bad, but it also wasn’t the most fantastic thing I ever read. But it provides for a nice short read that will get you through the day and leave you with a smile on your face. Pate Hawkins used to be a Broadway dancer, but a knee injury ended his career and now he has to go for a new plan. He went back to Atlanta and is determined to open his own dance academy to train a new generation of dancers. But before that can happen, the space he intends to use needs to be remodeled and Pate hires a contractor for that. So when Ace Samson shows up, one of the most gorgeous constructors Pate has ever seen, he knows he is in for some trouble. Pretty soon the construction is on the way, but the hot romance between the two men is also flaring up. Everything seems to be working out great, until Pate receives a call asking him to come back…

Bookreview / June 13, 2016

Personal Entanglement is part 2 in the Thorne and Dash series by Silvia Violet and because I absolutely loved part 1, I knew I had to read this second part. As we all know from part 1, Thorne and Dash are now madly in love and Dash even moved in with Thorne. Their lives seem to be eternal bliss, but there are problems building underneath and pretty soon they will come to the surface and must be dealth with. The great difference in age and income isn’t a problem for Thorne, but Riley seems to having more and more problems with it. He doesn’t want to depend on Thorne for everything and he doesn’t want Thorne to constantly fix all his problems for him. Riley started culinary school but it doesn’t seem to be so great as he thought. He finds it more and more difficult to go and keep up with classes. And he wants to start up his own business with his best friend, but how is he going to make that work? Once again Thorne wants to swoop in and fix everything with money and words, but Riley refuses to let him. Thorne doesn’t understand why Riley…

Bookreview / June 12, 2016

Selling It is a short story by Sara York, recently republished with a new cover. It was the first time I learned about the story and I liked it very much. It is a small murder mystery combined with a love story and it seems to be working very well. It was a quick read, but I enjoyed it a lot.
