I have actually blogged about this book before right here┬ábut 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,...

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

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 sweet ...

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 care...

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 also...

Then a call from America comes calling Travis back home again for an unknown time. It forces th...

Red Dirt Heart 2
Bookreview / December 6, 2014

The Red Dirt Heart series by NR Walker is one of my favourites to date. First of all, it is set in Australia, a country that I just love. Second of all, there is a lot of romance, love and friendship in this book. And last, I really like all the characters in the book and the way they are described. I can really see them in my mind and relate to them easily. In the first part we learn about Charlie Sutton who runs a big farm in Australi...
