Fast Connection

Fast Connection is a highly enjoyable and readable stand-alone, full-length romance novel, although Garrett and Kai from the first in this series – Strong Signal - do make a brief appearance. Dominic 'Nicky' Costigan returns to his parent's bagel deli in Staten Island, after a decade of serving ...

Blow Down

Blow Down is another delightful, witty episode in the lives of Tom Paretski, the slightly psychic plumber, and his new fiancé, P.I. Phil Morrison. Death is what happens while you’re making other plans. I loved this murder mystery and devoured its character driven plot with glee. J.L. Merrow ...

Him

This book is nominated for a 2016 RITA award. I enjoyed reading the story of Jamie Canning and Ryan Wesley – which is continued in the second of the series, US. However, there were a couple of issues for me to overcome; firstly, the major themes of Ice Hockey and the American college system. B ...

Scardust

The worst thing in the world is finding a book that sounds interesting and looks like it hits all your interest buttons, only to find you have to force yourself to read it. That happened to me with Scardust. The story isn’t bad, the characters aren’t bad, the writing style isn’t bad, but some ...

The Nobleman and the Spy

I’ve definitely been in a M/M historical kick recently. I blame K.J. Charles. But I’ve already finished all (but one!) of those, so I was looking to branch out a bit. And then I found this one. Jonathan Reese, hero number one, is a former soldier and now a spy for England. Hero number two is one ...

Nick is a few years older and wiser, a part time student and a bouncer who works at a local gay nightclub a few nights a week. He’ ...

Glove of Satin Glove of Bone

I had such high hopes for this book. Witches, grimoires, ex-lovers rekindling their relationship - this sounded promising to me. Unfortunately, the book doesn‘t deliver at all because the romance is underdeveloped and the rest of the plot is boring and implausible. Enne Datchery and Muriel vas ...

For Real

I first read For Real as an uncorrected final proof over a year ago and reviewed it for an LGBTQ blog awarding it 4.5*/5*. There were a couple of aspects I was unsure about at the time, which stopped me awarding 5*. I have since read it twice more. Reading it this time for review, I realised how muc ...

You Know Me Well

You Know Me Well is a funny, bright YA coming-of-age story about love, friendship and identity – I loved it and would be happy to have it with me on my Desert Island. <!-- var browName = navigator.appName; var SiteID = 1; var ZoneID = 4; var browDateTime = (new Date()).getTime(); if ( ...

Beneath the Waves

Although I am in real life quite afraid of the sea and prefer to stay out of it, I think the best part of Beneath the Waves is the setting. We spend a lot of time in the water, on a boat, on an oil rig, in a city on the bottom of the sea, and I loved this closeness to it a lot. It’s fascinating as ...
