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,...

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.

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...

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.

In this book we meet Braden, nephew of Aaron from the first book. His parents are strictly Christian and he really really wants to please them and be a good boy. But lately he has been having these feelings that he cannot describe, but does...

Joey’s Choice
Bookreview / February 26, 2015

I understand why this book is important, really I do. Suicide is always  a very sad thing and especially when someone decides to do it because they don’t feel accepted for what and who they are.

He doesn’t feel accepted and he thinks the wor...
