I have actually blogged about this book before right here but it has now been republished with a different cover. The story is still the same, it’s only the cover that has changed. The story was already heartbreaking in 2015, but in 2018 it is just as heartbreaking. I just could not finish this story without a few tears in my eyes, and that means it is a very good story. Joel is gay, but a one night drunken affair with his best friend make...

Second Chance by Jay Northcote is a new book by one of the greatest authors I know. Every single thing he publishes is an automatic buy for me. This book was no difference, but it was given to me as an eARC. It is not autobiographical, but because of the subject could be considered somewhat personal. Title: Second Chance Author: Jay Northcote Publisher: Jaybird Press (self published) Length: 67,000 words approx Genre: contemporary m/m romance, tr...

Heart Trouble is part 1 in the Hearts and Health series by D.J. Jamison. All stories are taking place in or around the same hospital, where all main characters work or visit regularly. I know the medical theme, especially doctors and nurses has been a lot, but I really like the way it is done in these books. Characters from other books in the series will show up every now and then, so the stories really connect. I will be posting about the other ...

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,...

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

On Solid Ground
Bookreview / February 22, 2015

He has been through a lot naturally and needs to find his place back in the world again. His mother treats him like a little boy and his brother is the p...
