Bookreview / April 30, 2017

And for another day, another wonderful novel from the even more wonderful Jay Northcote. It was send to me as an ARC and let me tell you, I LOVE this story. In the few weeks I have had it, I must have read it at least 5 times already and I know I will be reading it again and again. I love the whole Housemates series, but I especially love this part.

Why Love Matters
Bookreview / September 12, 2016

Why Love Matters is a new story by one of my all time favorite authors Jay Northcote. I automatically buy whatever she puts out, because I know it will be good. And once again I was not disappointed with this one. Alastair is about to make a very big business deal, but there is only one problem. The deal is with Italians and they prefer much more physical contact than just a simple handshake. And if there is one thing Alastair just cannot stand it is physical contact with anyone else. Martin, his faithful assistant offers the solution to this problem. His mother runs a place with specific workshops to help people with these kind of issues. Will Alastair be brave enough to try? Alastair is not only nervous about the workshop but also about spending the night with Martin in the same room. Because his assistant has been in more of his fantasies than he should be. So when the two men drive up to the estate and enter the workshop, they both might come out very different. I don’t know what it is about Northcote books, but they just get to me every single time. I could totally…
