Blogtour , Bookreview , Bookteaser / April 16, 2016

Imperfect Harmony is the latest novel by Jay Northcote, one of my auto buy authors. I think I have read just about everything she has published so far and without fail I loved each and every one of them. There is something about her characters and stories that just clicks with me and makes me fall in love with the stories and the characters every single time. And for this one I was lucky enough to be asked by Jay personally if I wanted to read and review this book. Of course I gladly accepted. I read the whole book in a day or so and once again I was confirmed in my love for Northcote stories. There is nothing imperfect about this one, it is once again a great story that made me fall in love instantly. Go out and buy it because it is perfect !!!

A Taste of Love – Of Love #1
Bookreview / November 3, 2015

A Taste of Love is a book by Andrew Grey and part of the Of Love series. Every book in the series is set in a place that has to do with food. A restaurant, a bakery or some other place, all food related. I kind of like it when stories revolve around the same theme, it binds them together and provides for a better background. In this first book we meet Darryl Hansen who has recently opened up the Cafe Belgie, where he wants to serve honest and good food. The restaurant is a great succes from the start and pretty soon the work is getting too much for them. So Darryl hires Billy Weaver.

All Man
Bookreview / August 7, 2015

All Man is the latest novel by one of my favorite authors, Jay Northcote. It is a spin off to Top Me Maybe, that was published earlier, but can be read as a separate story. And to say that Jay delivered again would be an understatement. I absolutely LOVED this story, as short as it sadly was. Official publication is on August 8, but Jay Northcote allowed me to read an ARC, for which I am very grateful. In the story we meet Julian, or Jules as he prefers to be called. He works in a small salon, lusting after men he will never have, living together with his best friend. But one day in walks Gareth to fit in some new sinks for the salon. Jules is immediately in love with the man who is exactly his type. Gareth is exactly the opposite of Jules. very burly and manly, exactly what Jules likes. Unfortunately Gareth is most likely straight, or so Jules thinks. Oh well, it can’t hurt to look and enjoy now can it. When the weekend finally arrives, Jules and his best friend decide to check out some new gay club in town, drinking and dancing the…
