Object of Desire

Reviewing romantic suspense is a bit of a sticky wicket, as it’s extremely difficult to discuss a suspense novel without spoiling it. Reader, Object of Desire has so many of secrets (and potential bad guys) it’s difficult to keep track of them all!  And then Ms. Maclean further muddies the wate ...

Fourteen Summers

Quinn Anderson’s sunlight-warm story is a strong and well-written novel about moving from your late teens into the confusing mess of your twenties, all set up against the backdrop of family angst and self-discovery. Aiden and Max Kingsman have been inseparable from birth – quite literally.  ...

The Henchmen of Zenda

I’ve been looking forward to The Henchmen of Zenda, K.J. Charles’ ‘queered’ retelling of the classic The Prisoner of Zenda, ever since she announced it months ago, and in fact the book made my 'most eagerly awaited of 2018 list' here at AAR.  I love a ripping adventure yarn, and that’s ex ...

A Gentleman Revealed is set in an alternate Victorian era in which  homosexuality is accepted and understood by society. Men are free to court men and engage in public courtship, but the same rules of decorum apply, meaning that men cannot be seen alone together without a chaperone, and it is assum ...

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 ...

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 ...

Undone by You

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 ...
