Straight Guys Series (Straight Boy, Just a Bit Twisted, Just a Bit Obsessed, Just a Bit Unhealthy, Just a Bit Wrong, Just a Bit Confusing)

This series is a guilty pleasure for me.  The tales are just so wrong, unhealthy, twisted…  But, they’re irresistible, too.  Each of the stories features a guy who doesn’t quite know what he’s getting himself into, a manipulative guy, and an awkward, but totally hot relationship.  There’s always a power play, emotional sabotage, kinkiness, and…

Tied Together

Heller deftly tells this story in three parts, spanning over a decade.  The first takes place in high school, the second in college, and the third begins twelve years after they last saw each other in college.  This gives a bit of the tale away: they’re friends during their youth, then lovers, and boy, did…

Nice Guys’ Series (Double Full, Full Disclosure, Full Domain)

I want to begin by telling you, straight-out, I love Kindle Alexander’s work.  She wrote one of the first m/m books I’ve read (Always), and is probably guilty of getting me hooked on the sub-genre.  Confession done. The Nice Guys series is beautiful in every way.  The MCs are hot.  Their souls might be dirty,…

Unsaid (Manhattanites)

I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Somehow, Aster is able to make characters who are both larger-than-life, but realistic. I felt like I knew each one, from the main characters (Miguel and Blake) to the secondary characters, who are, of course, main characters in other books of the…

The Riley Brothers (Buzz,Clang, Swish)

 Photo provided by: https://www.goodreads.com/series/167800-the-riley-brothers The Riley Brothers is a sweet m/m series by E. Davies.  Middle brother, Cam, starts us off, in Buzz.  He’s a bit too perfect, which does cause his character to have less depth than I generally prefer.  His health and career situation is gripping, and he’s partially closeted, so there is some…

Losing It (Gay Spanking Erotic Romance)

Losing It is a short, but quite hot, story.  I love it when an author can, in under 50 pages, develop a character, set the scene, compel you to read forward.  Davies does that here.  Jason and Alec knew each other in high school, as good friends.  They bump into each other six years later,…

A Mess of Reason

I was provided an ARC from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I was excited to read this story.  I like friends to lovers tales.  They come with their own suspense and electricity.  Sure it’s a trope, but that’s okay, especially when the author throws a unique twist in for good…

Getting Rough (Monkey Business Trio)

Ballantine Bantam granted me an advanced copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Getting Rough was a throughly enjoyable read!  The characters are witty.  They talk to themselves even more than I do, but with much more sass and brutal honesty than I dare.  You immediately bond to these new friends (yes, the…

Sawyer (Torey Hope: The Later Years)

A.D. Ellis granted me an advance copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I had a lot of hope for Sawyer.  The blurb seemed compelling.  Two young adults, struggling with their sexuality, compelled by family obligation to act against their truths- what’s not to like? Both the main characters and the secondary characters…

The Ties That Bind

Romance Beckons awarded me an advanced copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The blurb for this book reeled me in.  The warning from the publisher should have kept me away.  Mind you, the book is captivating.  The characters are complex, the scenes are described in breath-taking detail, so much so that if…

Guardians of the Realms

Image from: http://www.settajay.com/shop.html Setta Jay granted copies of each book in the series via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. I requested this series because it was erotica, and it looked like it’d be hot. And, to be fair, a lot of it was hot.  There’s also some BDSM, which I’m totally okay with, and…

A Seditious Affair (A Society of Gentlemen novel)

I received an advanced copy from Loveswept via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. K. J. Charles is just amazing!  The Society of Gentlemen series is HOT!  And tender.  And intelligent.  And gripping.  Honestly, I read the first book, A Fashionable Indulgence, because the blurb seemed good and I got it cheap. How bad…
