Taylor Simmons has everything he’s ever wanted: a decent job, a nice apartment, and Joey Martin, his perfect geek boyfriend. But all that is about to change.
First Joey gets sick. He’s feverish for days, starving for food. Finally a terrified Taylor calls EMS only to be told there’s nothing they can do. Joey’s body is changing, and he’s not going to be Human anymore. He’s a Lesser-Bred.
Suddenly Taylor, who has always taken care of Joey, can’t even begin to fulfill his needs. Joey needs to eat—to feed. And that means he needs a sexual connection with Gabriel, a Lesser-Bred being kept by a Kin named Pavel. Stripped of his job, his cushy apartment, and his connection to the sweet, dorky Joey he fell in love with, Taylor struggles to maintain a sense of identity—and humanity—in Atlanta’s Gray Zone, where Human dreams become nightmares. Suddenly it’s Taylor, not Joey, who needs to be protected. Because the people around him are dying, and if Taylor doesn’t open his eyes, he might be next.

Lis’ Review of Monster Town by Dakota Chase

Monster Town
Prizm Books, March 13, 2013 | 67 pages

James Dire has a problem. He doesn't breathe fire, suck blood, or sprout fur and a tail during full moons. He doesn't eat babies, or trample cities, or carry screaming women off to his underwater lair. In short, he's about as dangerous and exotic as a boxful of sand.
While this may not be an issue elsewhere, it is in Eden, James' hometown. Here, everyone, from his parents and siblings, to his classmates, to the mayor, are fire-breathing, bloodsucking, fur-sprouting monsters, and James doesn't fit in anywhere.
James always feels excluded and knows he's always suspect because of his difference. He's very shy, has few friends, and his only sense of purpose comes from his job as reporter for the school paper.

Where Am I?

Lately I've been horribly absent from the internet and this blog. If it wasn't for Larissa's reviews it would've been very quiet around here. Conflicts and work overload are sucking up all the energy I usually put into writing reviews, so, that's my excuse... It's a lame one, I know.

But hopefully it will all change soon, as I'm due to go on a vacation. Yay! I'm actually flying across the Atlantic Ocean when this post goes up. We (hopefully) left Amsterdam early this morning and we're heading to Los Angeles where we will jump in a car to drive to San Diego. The first week of our vacation we're staying in SD, hubs is attending a convention there while I seek out the beach. ;)
After San Diego we will travel around for a bit. We plan to visit a few National Parks like Bryce Canyon, Zion, Arches, Monument Valley and of course Grand Canyon. And than, to go home well-rested, we'll spend a few more days in Santa Monica to conclude our vacation. :)

I'm not sure how much time I will have to blog when we're traveling, I guess not much. But I hope to at least read a lot and also to write a couple of reviews once I'm less stressed, so that I can post a few when I'm back again in mid-June.
Larissa has written a few reviews that will be posted in the next weeks and I might pop in occasionally as well, so hopefully it won't be too quiet here at the blog. But in case it is, you know why. :D

Feeding from pack beta Liam Benson was supposed to slake his appetite, not leave him craving more.

Cormac Kelly runs a paranormal investigation business and doesn't have time to deal with misinformed tourists like Sean.

May M/M Releases I Look Forward To

Even though it has been quiet for a few weeks here at the blog and I haven’t had much time to read a lot this past couple of weeks, I still keep buying books. You never know when it comes in handy to have tons of unread books, right? So, here’s my wish list for May!
