Second Skin
Blogtour , Bookteaser / April 11, 2016

Second Skin is the new novel by Alex Whitehall and together with Riptide Publishing she is going on a blogtour for this book. And I was fortunate enough to be a part of that tour. The book is dealing with the subject of trans people, a subject I don’t know much about but am very interested in. And now I will give the post over to Alex and let her tell you more about this story. Hello, everybody! I’m Alex Whitehall, and I’m here today touring for my New Adult story, Second Skin, which is about Jay and Roswell, who are on a journey of love, acceptance, and self-discovery. About Second Skin When Jay heads to the university’s learning center for help with his math class, he doesn’t expect his tutor to be tall, dark, and handsome. But Roswell is all that and more, and their instant connection over cult movies, books, and TV shows quickly evolves into dating. That’s when things get tricky. Roswell might claim he doesn’t have issues with Jay being trans, but when he’s constantly insisting they “take it slow,” Jay’s not so sure. He’s been hurt before, and he’s not going to let it happen…

Love Jake – Rags and Riches #2
Bookreview / April 10, 2016

Love Jake is part 2 in the Rags and Riches series. A few weeks ago I already reviewed part 1, now I will review part 2. As I already stated with part 1 I loved it, and that hasn’t changed with part 2. The basis concept is the same. A rich guy meets a poor guy in the street, likes him and they build up a relation after gaining trust and friendship. I am a great fun of this basic concept and E.M. Leya manages to work it out perfectly. Love Jake is a perfect add to the series, and I have already learned there will be a part 3 soon. Jay has worked very hard all his life, determined to be the attorney in the state. His one goal in life is to help others and see them grow after he helped them. However his personal life is a disaster. Every night when he comes home his house is dark and cold. At first he thought that is what he wanted, but he hates it more and more. But where to find the perfect guy? Chris was kicked out on the street by his parents when they learned he…

If I Told You So
Bookreview / January 17, 2015

If I Told You So falls in the Young Adult category, since it is about young people (16 or so). There is a small gay theme, but that is not the major point of the story. Sean Jackson is turning 16 this summer and because he doesn’t want to spend the summer with his dad in another state he finds himself a summer job. Ofcourse all the cool places are already taken, so he ends up selling ice cream in a bright pink shirt, making new friends in the proces. On his very first day he meets Becky, a Jewish girl from New York and the manager of the store Jay. Jay is 18 and according to Becky has an eye out for Sean. Sean knows he has feelings for Jay, but doesn’t know how to act on them or what to do. And to make things worse, Sean has Lisa, his “girlfriend” of several years. He is glad she is a good Christian girl and doesn’t want to “do” anything. Lisa goes away for the summer and leaves Sean to his feelings. The more he works with Jay, the more he starts to feel for him and wants to…
