Cutie Pies

Dildos and romance collide in Barbara Bell’s bite-sized treat of a novella, Cutie Pies. Joey has found his place working at Cutie Pies, the smallest adult novelty shop in Sydney, Australia.  It’s not only a job for him but is also a kind of home away from home, a locale where his teasing bes ...

Dirty Games

I’ve read and enjoyed a handful of HelenKay Dimon’s romantic suspense novels, some of them m/f, and some m/m, so I know pretty much what to expect from her;  a fast-paced, energetic and steamy story that is perhaps longer on action than it is on romance – which is exactly what I got.  Dirty ...

Seduction on the Slopes

Miles Palmer knows he’s at the end of his downhill slalom career. This is his last Snow and Ice Games (fictional Olympics) and he plans on finishing exactly how he’s always competed - dominantly and with a podium finish. The possible wrench in the plan is his teammate and rabble-rouser Crash Del ...

The Chicago Rebels series normally focuses on one of the three sisters who own the Chicago Rebels NHL Franchise, but in this novella, Ms. Meader pauses and focuses instead of two of the organization’s gentlemen; the General Manager and a player. It’s a boss/employee story with the added layer of ...

When Everything is Blue

It wasn't that long ago that I was a raving about newly-discovered-by-me author Laura Lascarso and her book The Bravest Thing. Right on the heels of said discovery came When Everything is Blue, and I was all sorts of grabby hands about reading not only another well-crafted m/m young adult contempor ...

The Bravest Thing

I don't know who put The Bravest Thing on my radar but whoever it was, please feel free to find me and collect a reward for a job well done. Laura Lascarso is a new-to-me author, one I'm sorry to say I hadn't even heard of before picking up this book, but I knew by the opening chapter (truthfully ...

Sinless is book 1.5 in Lynne Connolly’s new series The Shaws, a continuation or spin-off of her seven book Emperors of London series about the powerful Vernon family.  The Shaws are closely related to the Vernons (cousins I think), and some of them appeared in the earlier series as secondary char ...

Down by Contact

Do you like contemporary romance?  Do you love novels with compelling (and endearing) principals, witty dialogue and steamy love scenes?  Love a great opposites attract pairing?  Then you should be reading Santino Hassell.  If you haven’t picked up one of his novels, you’re missing out.  Mr ...

His Wicked Love

His Wicked Love, the début fantasy title from Mila Benson, is not my usual fare.  I read very little fantasy and have never played Dungeons and Dragons (let’s be honest, I’ve never played any role-play video game), so I worried His Wicked Love , with its cast of warlocks, paladins and archmage ...
