Review: Songs Unfinished – Holly Stratimore

Review: Songs Unfinished – Holly Stratimore

Songs Unfinished is a beautiful love story featuring great characters, music, friendship and romance – well written and sounding true, I both had tears in my eyes at times, and good laughs at other times. My Songs Unfinished review: I enjoyed all the different parts of Songs Unfinished. Shawn and Jaymi both are very well done characters, and they both have to come to terms with their pasts so they can start living in the present, and plan their future. Story-wise, I was enchanted, both because I could relate to characters I don’t have much in common with in real life, and because they are both musicians and I love music. What the characters have been through in the past […]

Blogtour Review: Winter’s Wolf – Tara Lain

Blogtour Review: Winter’s Wolf – Tara Lain

Welcome to my stop on the Winter’s Wolf blogtour, hosted by Enchantress of Books Blogtours. I have my review to share with you today, as well as my favorite quotes and an international giveaway! So come on in and get comfy with Winter 😉 My Winter’s Wolf review: Winter’s Wolf blew me away! Winter is a great character, and I loved how true to himself he stayed throughout the story. Matt, the FBI agent we met in Wolf in Gucci Loafers had a very important part to play, too.  I loved how Damon, Winter’s father, changed his outlook on a lot of things as well, because at the beginning, he was slightly homophobe, had very strict views on human / […]

Review: Dirty London – Kelley York

Review: Dirty London – Kelley York

Dirty London is a different kind of coming of age story, because London needs to find herself again, deal with those who might not accept her, and fight to get her confidence back. My Dirty London review: I can’t even tell you how much I loved Dirty London! It is well written, and London is a great character to follow through her journey to accept herself, to find herself and to make sure her last year of high-school won’t be wasted trying to never be noticed. Written in first person present tense, with some added information through London’s blog posts that she uses as her diary, I felt like I got to know her very well, and I couldn’t help […]

Review: Three of Hearts – Kelly Jamieson

Review: Three of Hearts – Kelly Jamieson

Hotter than hot, three musicians finally act on the feelings they have for each other in Three of Hearts. My Three of Hearts review: Between Haylee, Ben and Lucas, there has always been a kind of tension, but Haylee has always brushed it off as a strong friendship and a common love for their music. At the beginning of Three of Hearts, when Haylee found out that her boyfriend was cheating on her, she thought she wasn’t going to be able to go through with their last concert, but Ben and Lucas managed to get her to be angry rather than sad, and it was their best concert ever. After the concert, she drinks a little too much, but not […]

Review: More than Friends – Aria Grace

Review: More than Friends – Aria Grace

More than Friends is a short story, in which Ryan figures out he might like guys a lot more than he previously thought. My More than Friends review: More than Friends is quite well written, but I had a little trouble with Ryan’s complete turn-about that happened so quickly. At the beginning of the story, he’s a little sad because he and his girlfriend Brooke broke up, so he kind of hooks up with a girl in a bar, and comes with her to her cousin’s, Zach, place. He falls asleep on the coach, while she goes into a bedroom all alone. The next day, he is invited back to Zach’s for a party, and he is a little uneasy […]

Giveaway and Blogtour Review: Canning the Center – Tara Lain

Giveaway and Blogtour Review: Canning the Center – Tara Lain

Welcome to my stop on the Canning the Center blogtour! If you have been here before, you know that I love Tara Lain’s stories! There are some really sexy male characters in them, and they all have to deal with discrimination because of their LGBTQ status in society. Some hide, others are well out in the open… Today, I’m sharing my Canning the Center review, some of my favorite quotes and there’s a giveaway, too! My Canning the Center review: Canning the Center might just be the best LGBT story I have read so far, it has everything – a hot football player who’s still in the closet, but really wants to come out, a beautiful and smart man who […]

Blogtour and Review: Outing the Quarterback – Tara Lain

Blogtour and Review: Outing the Quarterback – Tara Lain

Welcome to my stop on the Outing the Quarteback blogtour! This tour is hosted by Enchantress of Books Blogtours, and you can find the other tour-stops by clicking on the image above. My first reaction after reading this amazing story was just WOW, oh my goodness! Tara Lain has totally outdone herself – I loved Will and Noah, and Jamal and Eve were great characters, too. My Outing the Quarterback review: Secrecy, hurt and heartache are very much present in Outing the Quarterback. Will wants to be able to keep it together for just one more year until he finishes high-school, then he’ll go off and live his own dreams rather than his dad’s. Being the star quarterback, and dating […]

Review: Stripped Away – Ellis Carrington

Review: Stripped Away – Ellis Carrington

*I received a free ARC of Stripped Away from Ellis Carrington via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* Stripped Away is hot, complicated and heartbreaking! Dave has a hard time dealing with his father’s passing away, especially because the late pastor has shown his true colors of womanizing, embezzling and having a secret family known only after his death. My Stripped Away review: Stripped Away is an amazing story about Dave, how he’s dealing with his dad’s death, and meeting his brother Greg for the first time at the funeral. Stripped Clean, the first book in this series is about Greg, and he as well as the readers already knew about Dave, and how the pastor had lead a double […]

Review: No Boundaries – Donna K Ford

Review: No Boundaries – Donna K Ford

*I received a free ARC of No Boundaries from Bold Strokes Books via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* No Boundaries is a sweet, tender contemporary suspense romance, sharing the budding relationship between Gwen and Andi. My No Boundaries review: While I really enjoyed the characters in No Boundaries, the story was so slow paced it felt like double the pages that were actually there. The story itself is quite good, but it took a long time for Gwen and me to figure out what had really happened to Andi. And while I can understand that Andi was hiding behind a wall o f indifference to protect herself, and also those she loved, I felt like it was a […]

Review: Stranger on the Shore – Josh Lanyon

*I received a free ARC of Stranger on the Shore from Carina Press via Netgalley in exchange of an honest review* My Stranger on the Shore Review: Stranger on the Shore is a mystery m/m book, in which Griff wants to write a book about a young boy, heir to a fortune, who was kidnapped twenty years ago. A reporter for a small paper, covering crime, Griff has done his homework, but he’s not feeling so good when he arrives in front of the Arlington mansion on Long Island.
