Sink or Swim

Sink or Swim – is the first novel I have read by L.A. Witt in a long time, and when I read that it is concerning a gay romance between a Muslim and a U.S. Navy chaplain, I had high expectations.

I enjoyed Layla Reyne’s Agents Irish and Whiskey romantic suspense novels, and was delighted when the author announced she would be writing a spin-off series featuring two of the prominent secondary characters from those books, Assistant US Attorney (and former Navy SEAL) Dominic Price, and Specia ...

A Gentleman Never Keeps Score

This second book in Cat Sebastian’s Seducing the Sedgwicks series centres around Hartley, younger brother of Ben (hero of book one, It Takes Two to Tumble) whose backstory as explained in that book was both heartbreaking and intriguing.  It’s impossible to discuss further without entering into ...

Return of the Chauffeur's Son

I picked up this book because it’s based on the movie Sabrina, and I thought it would be fun to see what a contemporary m/m romance did with the plot. But there’s creative homage and there’s dull imitation, and unfortunately, Return of the Chauffeur’s Son falls into the latter category. The ...
