Off Base

Annabeth Albert is an author who first came to my attention with her Portland Heat series, centered around small shop owners of assorted varieties, and her #gaymer series which features a video game company. The last #gaymers book, Connection Error, featured a Navy SEAL (Ryan) and this new series Ou ...

One Life to Lose

I’m going to start by saying that I have a lot of admiration for what Kris Ripper has done with the Queers of La Vista series. Human beings hate change, they fear what they see as abnormal or different. In these novels the author presents stories about normal, everyday people who also represent so ...

Wolfsong

Earlier this year I had the pleasure of reviewing The Hating Game by Sally Thorne.  I loved it and recommended it to everyone I know.  Since then, I was certain - convinced really - that no other book could or would top my best of list for 2016 (though Cat Sebastian’s The Soldier’s Scoundrel c ...

Glass Tidings

I have to say that I am not a great fan of Holiday romances, as they are usually full of ridiculous coincidences and enough sweetness to induce a diabetic coma. But in this lovely, well written Christmas romance, Amy Jo Cousins keeps the story and the characters the right side of realism and cynicis ...

David, Renewed

In David, Renewed, Diana Copland has delivered a classic, well-crafted romance in which not only the main characters are appealing, but the supporting crew are wonderful as well. David Snyder is a rising star in a corporate decorating firm. Having walked out of a five-year relationship with good rea ...

The Secret Casebook of Simon Feximal

This book is a magnificent read and homage to the tradition of Victorian paranormal stories, and their ilk. I wish I could just let my review be those words, but if I did, I'd probably be drummed out of the ‘Reviewers Union’ ;) The Secret Casebook of Simon Feximal is almost the ‘queering ...

Chasing the High

Chasing the High is Beth Michele’s first m/m Romance, though she has quite a back catalogue of well-received m/f Romances. This novel starts well with a quote from F. Scott Fitzgerald – “They slipped into an intimacy from which they have never recovered.” a perfect summation of the plo ...

Romancing the Wrong Twin

Published under the Dreamspun Desires banner, Clare London’s latest is Romancing the Wrong Twin. When gruff, career mountaineer Dominic Hartington-George needs money for his next climb, his agent persuades him to get sponsorship from an outward bound equipment company. The company champions divers ...

Interborough

Interborough is the fourth in Santino Hassell’s Five Boroughs series and is definitely not a standalone. It re-visits an established pair, Raymond and David, eighteen months on from previous novels in the series. Raymond Rodriguez is now working two jobs and going to college. He still lives wit ...

Marian

“A girl can do plenty of things besides get married and pop out babies.” “Of course she can,” Marian said. “And if you don’t want to have a husband, you shouldn’t.” One of the aspects I love most about this lesbian retelling of Robin Hood is its refreshing view on women and gender ...
