Georgie, All Along

I don’t read much m/f romance these days, but I’m always up for one of Kate Clayborn’s because they’re so thoughtful and tender and honest. She writes complex, well-drawn characters who are dealing with relatable, real-life problems, and while not ‘flashy’ or full of drama, her books non ...

Imagine if you were alone in your best friend’s NYC apartment and you heard someone trying to come in through the locked door. You aren’t expecting anyone, so you fear this may be an intruder up to no good. What would you do? I would imagine that, like me, your first instinct would be to grab yo ...

Mack Kennedy is a nice guy; a gentle giant of a veterinarian who has been a critical emotional support for his widowed sister Sal.

Heartscape

Earlier this year, I reviewed Sarina Bowen’s Roommate, which was the starting point for the new multi-authored True North World series, which comprises four mini-series of books set within the world created by Ms. Bowen in her True North stories.  The Vino and Veritas novels are LGBTQ+ romances ...

The Roommate

Friends, there is nothing like reading a debut romance and loving it.  Surprising, funny, sexy and original, The Roommate is on my shortlist of favorite books of 2020.  It’s excellent. Clara Wheaton has loved Everett Bloom since they were small children.  Their families, part of the Connecti ...

Finding Mr. Right Next Door

There’s a saying that goes ‘here for a good time, not for a long time’, which perfectly describes the short (200 pages in e-book form) friends-to-lovers Finding Mr. Right Next Door. Lexi Dean and Matt Freeman are renowned amongst the Station 1 fireteam of Dry Rock, CO for their “twenty-f ...
