Begin Again – Rags and Riches #9
Bookreview / August 13, 2017

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, it was a heart warming story all over again. But since we are already at part 9, I am beginning to wonder how long you can keep the series going. At some point all the possible combinations must run out I guess. Tyler (who we already met in an earlier book from the series) had it all in his life. The perfect job, the perfect boyfriend and the perfect friends. But now it is all gone. He has made bad choices, nurtured a drug addiction and suffered from severe anger issues. In the end it landed him in jail for three months, and when he is released he has nothing and is forced to…

Top Me Maybe?
Bookreview / August 30, 2015

Top Me Maybe is a book by Jay Northcote. It is a nice and sweet short story about hidden desires and asking for the things you want. It predates the book All Man that I read before, so some of the characters are the same. Both books can be read separately though. Tyler has a new boyfriend, Duncan. Duncan is cop and everything Tyler ever wanted. Tall, broad and very very manly. For the slightly feminine Tyler it is a match made in heaven. But Duncan has one secret desire he wants to discuss with Tyler, but is afraid to do so. So one night they start talking about sexual fantasies. What would you like to do or have done to you if it were possible? Duncan decides this is his chance to get his wish out in the open. Luckily for him, Tyler is very into his wish and only to happy to make it happen. It will take some work and getting used to, but in the end both men will be better because of it. A small excerpt from the story: “What do you want to talk about?” Tyler thought for a moment then answered, “Sexual fantasies.” They…

The Boyfriend Mandate (The Boyfriend Chronicles part 2)
Bookreview / November 24, 2014

This is part 2 in the Boyfriend Chronicles, and although I liked part 1 a little better, this one is not bad also. In the first part we met Tyler, who has never been able to stick with one man only. In part 2 not that much has changed. Tyler still remembers his first boyfriend Memphis Haines, now a well known Hollywood stuntman and also straight. Or at least, that’s what he tells the world. He has even been married to his female agent for a while. But luck brings Memphis and Tyler back together again and they soon discover the old passion hasn’t gone away yet. But both men have some secrets they are afraid to reveal to the other and to the world. Will they find the strength to come clean and fall in love the way they are supposed to? I really like the way River Jaymes writes these stories. She makes the characters very believable and everything that happens to them just goes straight to the heart. You feel every bit of pain and emotion the characters go through and that is what makes a book strong in my opinion. River Jaymes has a very nice…
