Paranormal Gay (M/M) Romance

Carina Press’ The Wolf at Bay, by Charlie Adhara, sucked me in so hard I nearly forgot to pee. Actually, I think I did. I vaguely remember thinking somewhere around the middle that my bladder was angry, but I didn’t pry my butt outta bed until I hit “The End” several hours later. Reading can be a cruel mistress.

Contemporary Gay (M/M) Rock Star Romance

Okay, hot dayum, folks, this week’s read was killer. Counterpoint, by Anna Zabo, is book two in the Twisted Wishes miniseries from Carina Press. I haven’t read book one, but you can bet your booty that bad boy is already purchased and sitting in my Kindle to start reading as soon as I’m finished with this review.

gay (m/M) romance

This was a pleasure read that truly ended up being just that: a total delight. In fact, I downloaded this bad boy on my Kindle with the goal of reading a chapter here and there when I had the time. Next thing I knew, late morning had turned into early evening and I had devoured the whole thing. In one sitting. Yeah, Home Skillet by Cate Ashwood & Sandra Damien is one of those books. The kind you get sucked into and forget to eat, or sleep, or relieve your bladder.

MAGIC REALISM

Throughout my life, I’ve only really read two basic genres of books: those I’ve been forced to read for school, and those that fall—in some way—into the romance realm.
