Begin Again is the latest addition to the Rags and Riches series by E.M. Leya. The basic principle of the series is always the same. Two different people meet, one is always poor or otherwise in a bad state, and the other one is rich or at least better of. They meet and hit it off straight away, overcoming all the problems between them. I have read every other part in the series and I have always loved them. And this latest part is no difference,...

In the middle of dinner with his brother he receives a text message confirming details of date with some one called Ash.

As promised when I talked about part 1 I also read part 2 in the series and I will tell you all about it today. Let me start of by telling that part 2 in the series was quite good, but in some ways it left me wanting more and with unanswered questions. When we left part 1 James was about to come out to the public eye and telling the world he is a gay man and deeply in love with Benjamin. But when he reveals that to the world, it will also mean e...

Lady Cassandra is his best friend and has always acted as his beard, pretendi...

Imagines is part 2 in the Imago series, which logically follows part 1 in the series. Immediately after finishing part 1 I started the second part, because I had to know what happened next. And I certainly wasn’t disappointed. Lawson and Jack have been together for 6 months now, and are still madly in love with each other. Lawson is still very much involved in saving the new found species of butterfly, the Tillman Copper. Jack is working ve...

A Way Home
Bookreview / April 15, 2015

A Way Home is the third and sadly the final part in the Gay Amish Romance series by Keira Andrews. And I for one was dying to read this. The first 2 parts are great and I have read them several times already. The third part is equally great, I absolutely LOVED it. Once I started reading I just could not stop reading, I needed to know how it ended. At the end of part 2 Isaac was forced back to Amish country to be with his sick brother, l...

Skye & Colin
Bookreview / April 15, 2015

Skye & Colin is the latest novel by Mark A. Roeder and if it is up to me, it will the very last by this author. I have said it in the past and I will say it again, these books are bordering on annoying to me. I mean, boys that talk to ghosts? Boys with superpowers? Boys who have all kinds of secrets that they will never tell about, but keep hinting at all the time? A story that reads like it was written by a high school kid? Diamond...

World Famous Cults & Fanatics
Bookreview / April 12, 2015

World Famous Cults & Fanatics is a book by Colin Wilson, an author who wrote many books about subjects like this. This is the first book by him that I read however, and I am disappointed to say the least. With a title like this you come to expect a lot, but when I finished the book I thought “Really, this is all?” A lot of promise, but not a lot of delivery. The book tries to describe cults and fanatics through out the y...

Signs
Bookreview / April 11, 2015

Signs is a novel by Anna Martin and deals with romance in a not everyday setting. Two boys meet each other on line and fall for each other, but the catch is that 1 of the boys is deaf. I can imagine that would make meeting someone even more hard than it already is. However Anna Martin does a great job in this book and I absolutely loved it !! Writing stories about disabled people is harder than writing about “normal” people,...
