Series spotlighted: The Cole McGinnis Series by Rhys Ford

I've read the Cole McGinnis Series by Rhys Ford back to back; I started with the first of three books and I just couldn't stop reading until I finished the last one. Cole McGinnis stole my heart. He is the narrator of the books in this series and he's an ex-cop turned private investigator in Los Angeles. At the beginning of the first book he meets his (soon to be) lover Kim Jae-Min, when he is investigating the suicide of Jae-Min's cousin. All of Cole's investigations are, from the first book on, taking place in the midst of Korean culture. Jae is Korean and being gay in his culture is a big problem. This is a recurring theme in all the books. It's amazing how much these stories are drenched in Korean culture, without it being too overwhelming. I'm actually surprised at how much it fascinated me.

Jordan is used to being the butt of every hedge witch joke, painfully aware he's a checklist of clichés, and long resigned to never being as successful as the more favored elemental witches. Then a prestigious magic firm puts out a call for hedge witches, and the chance to prove himself and become more than a joke is impossible to resist—even if he has to put aside all those things he loves for a little while. It's only temporary, the money is great, and it will all be worth it in the end.

5 Contemporary Romances (M/F) That Recently Caught My Eye

I’ve been shuffling my reading genres more this year than I have been the last couple of years (when I mainly stuck to gay romance only). Now, I’m reading more literary fiction again – my old love, but I won’t bore you with those titles on this blog ;) – and also more romantic suspense, military romance and contemporary romance of the M/F variety. The past week a few of those types of titles popped up in my Goodreads and Twitter timelines, or jumped me in the face while browsing Netgalley’s catalogues. I thought I’d share 5 of them here, 5 titles that are all released in the first half of July.

The Summer months usually mean more time to read for me. So time to stock up my ereader for the beach! Here’s a few of the releases that are on my wish list this month:
