When Payton’s married boyfriend stands him up for their weekend getaway, he finally realizes Dominic isn’t treating anyone on either side of the whole mess with any decency.
Payton hardly knows what to do with himself when, out of the blue, he’s rescued by the arrival of Cord, a handsome Dear Lake tour guide. Cord isn’t looking for a relationship, but he’s not going to pass on helping Payton. And when helping Payton includes drinking, flirting, dancing, and sex, that’s even better.

Lis’ Review: On Thin Ice by Jessica Lee

On Thin Ice (Ariel Estates #1)
Resplendence Publishing, February 29, 2012

Silas Murdock, lion Pride leader of Ariel Estates, is on the trip of a lifetime, big game hunting with his entourage in Alaska. Everything had been perfect right up until a freak storm barreled into the area ruining their plans followed by an assassin’s bullet plummeting them into the frozen tundra.

Enter wolf shifter and former pack physician, Theodor Lucas. Returning from a trip to a nearby village, he witnesses the crash and finds the wreckage along with an unconscious and barely alive Silas. Theo’s ethical sense won’t allow him to walk away, leaving the male to suffer and freeze to death when there’s a chance he could be saved. Despite the personal risk and his vow to never be responsible for another soul, Theo takes the lone survivor back to his cabin to care for his injuries.

Happy Gay Friday: An Abyss? Well...

This will be the last regular Happy Gay Friday post for a short period to follow. I’ve decided that it’s best for me when I free myself from ‘blogging with a schedule’ for a couple of weeks. At least for the next 4-8 weeks, maybe more, but I’ll keep you posted on that. This doesn’t mean there won’t be any HGF posts during those weeks, I might write one (or two) in the spur of the moment (but no promises). Nor does it mean there won’t be reviews or guest posts for the next couple of weeks, they probably just will be posted more at random. After this period of 4-8 weeks we hope to be back with our regular schedule of Monday, Wednesday and Friday posts.

Review: Summer School by Tam Ames

Tam Ames
Summer School
Silver Publishing, July 28, 2012

Author’s website | Goodreads | Buy book here

English teacher Jeremy Decker's split with his boyfriend has left him with no plans for the summer and credit card debt. One solution is to teach summer history classes. College history major Lucas Van Sloan is brought in to assist Jeremy, thrilled to have a summer job that doesn't include supervising kids at the hometown swimming pool. A summer heat wave has Jeremy more snarly than even upbeat Lucas can handle. Lucas drags the teacher back to his place and out of the heat, determined to drag Jeremy into his bed while he's got him there. However, Jeremy's ex isn't quite ready to let go, and a college student may be no competition for a high-powered attorney.

Belated Happy Gay Friday

I kinda miss them sometimes: Deniz & Roman

I know it’s Saturday, and I forgot to post yesterday... Sorry! Actually, Leontine and Larissa are the ones to blame for my being so late with the HGF post, hahaha. ;) They were here last night and I tried to trick them into writing the post for me, but they didn’t budge. *sulk*giggle*snort*

Happy Gay Friday: I'm Back

It feels like I've been away for a very long time, while in reality we were only 8 days in Egypt. This was one of the most intense vacations we ever had. 
Partly because of all the family dynamics that went on in a group of 10 people (and wow, do I have some selfish and/or obnoxious siblings) and partly because of the beautiful experience of diving and snorkeling between the exotic and colorful fish and coral reefs of the Red Sea. I definitely want to do that again soon. The quiet and beautiful world under water is truly mesmerizing! I couldn't get enough of it.

This is probably also the first vacation during which I didn't manage to read much books. There simply was no time and when I happened to have a small window of time for myself, I couldn't concentrate enough on the words in the book because of everything that was still whirling in my head. Things we did, things that were said, things that happened. So, no book talk this Friday... I have to find my reading groove again first and then hopefully next Friday's post will be more 'bookish'. :)

Happy Gay Friday!

October M/M Releases I Look Forward To

Although I’m still vacationing in Egypt I had my list with anticipated m/m releases for this month ready before I left, because there’s one thing that I always keep up to date, and that’s my wish list of m/m ebooks! ;)
I might’ve missed some book news during the last week of September due to that vacation, but I hope you’ll give me a heads up in that case.
So, here is my shopping list for October:

Dex in Blue (Johnnies, #2)
Release Date: October 1
Ten years ago David Worral had plans to go to college and the potential for a beautiful future in front of him. One tragic accident later, he fled to California and reinvented himself as Dex, top porn...more
