Happy Gay Friday
I’m always so happy when it’s Friday again (who isn’t?). It not only means a few days without work related pressure but also (for me) the possibility to look at my collection of boyz kissing boyz and pick one to put up at my blog :) And today I’m picking one with my friend Chris in mind, because she needs a little cheering up! She does that for me a lot too, if it were only for her fun blog, go visit her if you haven’t before. She also has the cutest kittens: Chaos and Mayhem, who do the cutest things of which she takes the cutest pics!
I’m also happy that it’s Friday because I finally may have some time and the right mindset to write a few reviews this weekend. I still want to write one about Sloan Parker’s More (the M/M/M romance I raved about before) and another one about the ARC I finished this week of Michelle Hauf’s My Vampire Husband (a paranormal M/F which was pretty good).
Oleander House. This book had me on the edge of my seat during the complete second half. It has thriller elements as well as a sweet gay for you romance. It's the first in a series and I really need to read the second book now. :) I have to know how this group of people is doing after what they experienced in Oleander House, especially the fragile love couple Sam and Bo. This promises to be a wonderful paranormal M/M series for me to discover yet. Of course I immediately bought the second and third book, What Hides Inside and Twilight! I have no self control ;)
And then there are a few M/M shorts I read last weekend that were all three very enjoyable.
Only Yours by J.R. Patrick, a Dreamspinners Nap-Size story. It’s about Dre and Nate and starts with Dre asking his boyfriend Nate to move in, and Nate leaving in the night without a word. Dre is hurt and learns only six months later why Nate left, and so do we. It’s a well written short story that packs quite some emotions and action in the limited amount of pages. I really enjoyed reading this! I rate it with 3.5 stars.
Dangerous Distraction by Mia Watts that I received from Mia herself and which she also offered for giveaway when she was here at my place for an interview. You can also find a sexy excerpt from it here. This story is about two hot cops that meet in a bar when an afterhours dare challenges Detective David Rook to kiss ATF Agent Nate Giamanti. Rook didn’t expect to kiss the sexiest pair of lips he's seen in a long time. He didn't expect it would shake his closeted lifestyle to the core. Short after that Nate is working with him on a case and Rook can't avoid his forbidden desires. Nate and David are very likeable characters, good-looking and sexy, but I wished we could have been given a little bit more background information. It would've made their attraction even better. Now their romance developed a bit too fast imo. But this still was a fun read with great scenes when the guys were together! If only this short story would've been twice as long! Nevertheless I enjoyed Dangerous Distraction a lot! I rate it with 3.75 stars.
Remember today’s book at All Romance eBooks is a gay romance! It’s Love Means No Shame by Andrew Grey. Once you add it to your cart it’s free. Here’s the link.
I hope you all have a happy Friday!
