"The James Dean Vintage," by Jess Whitecroft

Gay (M/M) Romance

It’s been a hot minute since I last read a “fake boyfriend/fiancé/husband” book, but The James Dean Vintage by Jess Whitecroft scratched an itch for just such a tale I hadn’t even realized was there. This was a fun, well-written read that relied heavily on the backbone of its trope yet still managed to find unique ways to shine as a story all its own.

"Counterpoint," by Anna Zabo

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. Because, holy smokes, I fell so flippin’ hard for these characters. I cannot wait to see Ray and Zavier’s story, because I just know it’s gonna be crazy hot and delicious and just… Okay, sorry, I’m totally getting off topic here.

"Shift's End," by A. R. Barley

Contemporary Gay (M/M) Romance

I’m a big fan of May-December romance, especially when it’s done well, which meant I was positively chomping at the bit to get my readerly hands on this week’s book. I’m happy to say, Shift’s End by A. R. Barley didn’t disappoint. Not only did it provide a delicious set of main characters I could easily fall for, but they were also firemen. Both of ‘em.

"Gregory Kirk," by Yorgos KC

(YA) Gay (M/M) Romance

My review this week is going to be a little different, as it’s on a story available on WattPad rather than a published book. The author reached out to me for a fair and honest review and seeing as how the subject matter and characters were so wonderfully diverse—something I truly believe is not seen enough in modern day literature—I was more than happy to dive in and read.

"Perfect Day," by Sally Malcolm

Contemporary Gay (M/M) Romance

Well, this week’s read was a downright pleasure, folks. It wasn’t what I was expecting going in, yet I came out the other side thoroughly sated and filled with all the happiest of little sighs. Perfect Day by Sally Malcolm is a gender-bending retell of the classic Persuasion by Jane Austen. And, oh my heart, what a sweet and wonderful twist on that tale it was.

Bisexual / Gay (M/M) Romance

Holy hamburgers, is it hot in here or is it just me? 🔥

 

Phew. Okay. Don’t mind me; I’m just a bit… breathless. This week’s read was definitely of the “high heat” variety, and all I can say is… gimme more! Hot dayyyum. Reporting In, by Vanessa North, is part of Carina Press’ delectable Dirty Bits line. They promise not only scintillating sex but also a *happy sigh* style HEA, all presented in bite-sized novellas that you can read in a couple of hours or less.

"Home Skillet," by Cate Ashwood & Sandra Damien

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.

"Like Two Opposite Things," by Eda J. Vor

(YA) Bisexual / lesbian Romance

Like Two Opposite Things, written by Eda J. Vor is a wonderful read. Of all the YA I’ve encountered over the years, I can honestly proclaim that this, right here, is the most genuine piece I’ve read—and despite my mild personal aversion to it, I’ve read my fair share as a beta and/or in mild hopes of finding a diamond in the rough.
