Review – Nervous Kid by Colin Dereham

Part of the Bondi Bears series, this is a standalone novel of extremely high quality. Yes, there is a LOT of sex, but to counteract it, there is a searing story of half-brothers finding love, acceptance and learning to accept their chaotic childhoods. All through this book I was waiting for the crunch, the oneContinue reading “Review – Nervous Kid by Colin Dereham”

Review – Valencia With Love by B.J. Smyth

Anyone considering this book would be misguided if they dismissed it as “daddy kink.” It’s more about two beautiful souls coming to terms with individual grief and taking the first tentative steps towards finding happiness again. The author has created two utterly believable and lovely characters in Rick and Tommy. Cynics can turn around andContinue reading “Review – Valencia With Love by B.J. Smyth”

Review – Devil’s Due by J.P. Jackson

Dominic Ronove (Dom!) is a badass demon who is very good at his job, giving humans whatever they want for six years before they have to repay the debt, often bloodily and always without mercy. Malik is a cute, intelligent guy who moves across Dom’s radar and piques his interest, setting in motion events whichContinue reading “Review – Devil’s Due by J.P. Jackson”

Review – Dollars to Collars by Mx. Alex

This is a super-quick read at 63 pages, which packs a great wallop. Having read Mx. Alex’s books before, I know kind of what to expect, and I also trust they represent BDSM correctly and with intimate knowledge. It’s a safe feeling, knowing you’re reading something that feels authentic. Hats off as well for notContinue reading “Review – Dollars to Collars by Mx. Alex”

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 – 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 – 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 – For Real by R.A. Frick

Billed as an MM/Mx BDSM romance, this was a fun read, with great characters and a plot which veered from tender to amusing to WTF? Genderqueer Ash’s character was terrific (pronouns they/them.) They were a striking balance to cis het Jeff “Flowers” who was newly out of the military and adjusting to civilian life. “Flowers”Continue reading “Review – For Real by R.A. Frick”

Review – Muscles & Monsters (#1 Leviathan Fitness series) by Ashley Bennett

Okay, bear with me on this. I’ll read anything as long as it’s fun, not too heavy and romance orientated (so please don’t bombard me with high concept science fiction and non-fiction, okay?) If it’s steamy, so much the better. And this is a VERY steamy, yet sweet-natured monster fic, with curvy girl Tegan (gottaContinue reading “Review – Muscles & Monsters (#1 Leviathan Fitness series) by Ashley Bennett”

Review – Gideon’s Wish by Bryan T. Clark

What an absolutely delightful story this was. Gideon and Isaiah are an engaging, likeable couple taking the first tenuous steps towards love after they discover a mutual attraction. Isaiah’s meddling yet endearing mother is the instigator, and after that it’s a slow burn story which explodes into a sexy romance. There are some heavy hittingContinue reading “Review – Gideon’s Wish by Bryan T. Clark”
