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 differen...

Henry Hathaway is a professor who spends his birthday the same every year. He gets his teeth cleaned and then has dinner with his brother. His has been like that for years and this year will be no difference. Or will it? In the middle of dinner with his brother he receives a text message confirming details of date with some one called Ash. Henry doesn’t know someone with that name, so the message must have been sent to the wrong person. ...

This book was send to me as an eARC by the wonderful Jay Northcote and he asked me to read it and review it. And of course I did, because I love Jay and will read anything he puts out. So here we go. Rowan is at the last place he wants to be, but he made a promise to a friend and so here he is. Stuck at some folk festival surrounded by people he doesn’t know and doesn’t want to know, because it is totally not his scene. He can mana...

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...

Imagine a world where the crown prince of England is gay and desperately seeking for someone to fill the gap in his life. Always in the publics eye he is used to keeping up appearances. But being gay is the biggest secret of them all, and apart from a few people nobody knows about it. As far as the people go, James is straight and next in line for the throne of England. Lady Cassandra is his best friend and has always acted as his beard, prete...

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...

Unwrapping Hank
Bookreview / December 23, 2014

This book should be placed in this time of year, with Christmas just around the corner. As you can see from the picture on the front, a little holiday cheer is in order here. The story is about Sloane, who finds himself at University with little or no friends. He decides to join a fraternity in order to get to know some people. One of the people he lives with is Hank Springfield, a tough guy to look at with lots of muscles, tattoos a...

The Shearing Gun
Bookreview / December 19, 2014

Another book by Renae Kaye, so automatically a favorite of mine. This book is also set in Australia, this time in an area with a lot of sheep. Hank is 25 years old and owns a piece of land in South West Australia. When Hank revealed to his father he is gay, his father kicked him out of the house. And because Hank makes his money by shearing sheep, and no one will hire a gay shearer, he has remained in the closet all this time. That i...

Safe in His Arms
Bookreview / December 19, 2014

This is another book by the wonderful Renae Kaye. I have read almost all of her books and I absolutely love them. Strong characters who seem unlikely together, but in the end form a perfect fit. In this book we meet Lon and Casey. Lon works in the Australian mines and is a big strong and muscled guy as we see on the front of the book. Casey is a small boy who has been through a lot in his life. Casey is looking for safety and protect...

A Family of his Own
Bookreview / December 16, 2014

A Family of his Own is part 2 in the Mannies Incorporated Series by Sean Michael. The basic principle is the same. A male nanny comes into the home of a single dad with children, falls in love with dad and they live happily ever after. However, I liked part 1 way better than this part. In part 2 there is just too much attention to the children. Every other word is a childs name or something a child does. Constant reminders of how swe...

Mannies Incorporated
Bookreview / December 12, 2014

Another favourite of mine and the first in a series. The series is called “Mannies Incorporated” just like the first book and is apparently all about male nannies who happen to fall in love with someone in the households they take care of. In this first book we meet Slayde who lives in the house of Mindy and her three kids. Mindy is a soldier and currently deployed overseas to Afghanistan. Slayde works very hard to take c...

Checking Him Out
Bookreview / December 12, 2014

This has got to be one of the worst books I ever read. Maybe it is because the author comes from England and writes in a certain way, but I just don’t get this book at all. Sol Brooks is a happily married man, but in the course of a year he divorces, finds out he is gay, quits his job, finds a boyfriend and moves to England. We learn that Sol has always been gay but only married Elise to be able to remain in the USA. Elise is a...
