Review – The Many Loves of Sarah Brennan by Vikki Alexander

I read this when it was first presented as an ARC read, and I loved it. Sarah had been a somewhat polarising figure in Vikki Alexander’s first book, Coloring Life, and the chance to find out her story was intriguing. I didn’t much like Sarah, from what I knew of her in Coloring Life, butContinue reading “Review – The Many Loves of Sarah Brennan by Vikki Alexander”

Review – Wild Hearts (Bay Hearts Book 1) by Caz May

First thing to say – Read the author trigger warnings at the beginning. She very clearly states that in Australia, the age of consent is sixteen, so anyone saying “eew, they are so young,” well, you’ve been warned. I picked up this book after seeing it on Instagram, and to be honest, I was expectingContinue reading “Review – Wild Hearts (Bay Hearts Book 1) by Caz May”

Review – Diary of a Shy Backpacker by Bruce Spydar

I must admit, I didn’t read the blurb properly before I launched into this, and as a result, spent the whole book thinking it was a biography. Oops! Anyway, Bruce, our protagonist, exudes British awkwardness as he blunders around Australia, sight-seeing and thinking lascivious thoughts about the ladies he meets along the way. In short,Continue reading “Review – Diary of a Shy Backpacker by Bruce Spydar”

Review – Unprotected by Billy Porter

Visibility is hard. Anyone who creates and wants to be noticed by the millions of people on-line day after day can tell you that. We do what we can. Now imagine you’re a young, black gay man in the 1980’s and 90’s who, despite being possessed of an awesome talent, constantly has to fight againstContinue reading “Review – Unprotected by Billy Porter”

The anthology contains some stunning works from great authors, some writing in the fantasy genres, such as this one, A Mermaid’s Tears, from J.C. Seal. Verena is a teenager who has had much heaped upon her young shoulders, living in times of turmoil, who has to learn combat skills to help protect her people. InContinue reading “Review – A Mermaid’s Tears by J.C. Seal – Featured in Children of War”

Review – All The Cuts and Scars We Hide by Garry Michael

This author might just be near the top for my favourite MM romances. This story of two traumitized souls, each bearing the burden of bad memories and flashbacks, is a wonderful tale of healing, self-forgiveness and finding love. It is also a cute love story with lots of wonderful supporting characters, centred around a whale-watchingContinue reading “Review – All The Cuts and Scars We Hide by Garry Michael”

Review – Mastering Morgan by R&C Christiansen

This book, from the creator of the Tainted Love series, is one of their older works and a fairly quick read at 225 pages. I love this author’s work, so I was intrigued to see what they would do with an erotic book, based around the thorny subject of the sex trade. Please Note: theContinue reading “Review – Mastering Morgan by R&C Christiansen”

Review – Use As Wallpaper by Glenn Quigley

This is a quick but nuanced and entertaining read, about letting go of the past and moving on, as well as respecting one’s heritage and keeping old traditions alive. Stuart is a lovely guy, a bear-like man with a gentle soul, still unable to replace the last picture of him and his ex, which isContinue reading “Review – Use As Wallpaper by Glenn Quigley”

Review – Every Shade of Me by Alec John Belle

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to read an ARC of this book, and from the first line, I was hooked.  The writing is wonderful, an easy read but one that deals with tough subjects. I had no idea what an empath was until I read this, but Grayson (the main character) hasContinue reading “Review – Every Shade of Me by Alec John Belle”
