    Wrong Way Home by K.A. Merikan

    Wrong Way Home by Kat and Agnes Merikan is a dark M/M romance. It’s a pretty twisted tale of murder, attraction, anger and trust. It’s about a man falling for his captor and about difficult choices. It’s also – despite the wrongness of the plot-line – so very, very captivating. When reading so called dark romances, I’m usually vacillating between some kind of strange fascination and slight nausea, with quick stops at all kinds of emotions in between. But Wrong Way Home definitely kept me securely at the fascinated end of the spectrum. It even turned quite sweet and romantic now and again, so obviously it’s a vanilla dark romance,…

    Rough Sketch by Kate Canterbary

    Rough Sketch by Kate Canterbary was a bit of a surprise. Mostly because I hadn’t realized it was only a novella. It’s a very intense and raunchy story taking place in Canterbary’s Talbot’s Cove universe. It’s very high on the smut-scale (love it!) but it also has a surprisingly serious and contemplative undertone. The story describes the first few days of Neera’s and Gus’ passionate relationship. Neera was first introduced in Fresh Catch while Gus is new to the series. Gus is an artist, a free spirit and a wanderer. Neera – an ambitious and highly disciplined executive – is Gus’ opposite in every way. They irritate and frustrate each…

    That Alien Feeling by Alessandra Hazard

    That Alien Feeling is a bit of a whimsical story. Whimsical but at the same time tremendously endearing and thoroughly entertaining. I also became – very unexpectedly I might add – quite emotional when the forces working against the two MCs just wouldn’t let up. And yes, there were a few tears. The main character of the book is a young guy named Harry. Harry is utterly blind to social cues, lacking all fashion sense, naive to a fault and working in a coffee shop in London. Also, he’s an alien prince from the planet of Calluvia. Which certainly explains a lot of his weird behaviour. Anyway. Harry was sent…

    The Wolf at the Door by Charlie Adhara

    The Wolf at the Door by Charlie Adhara isn’t really one of my typical reads. But it’s an absolutely wonderful mix of several of my favourite genres, and it’s a positively amazing book. It’s an M/M, wolf shifter, romantic suspense story. That’s quite a mouthful, but it’s so, so good. The Wolf at the Door isn’t new either, it’s the first in the Big Bad Wolf series that so far has three installments but more are coming. Which is a good thing because I’m totally hooked. Agent Cooper Dayton works for the BSI, the special branch of FBI that handles crimes involving werewolfs. While Cooper is still recuperating after a…

    A Pizza My Heart by Teagan Hunter

    A Pizza My Heart isn’t a new release, but it is an absolutely fabulous, feel-good romance. And what better way of supporting a great author than to spread the word? This is more or less the perfect rom-com. It has all the feels, it’s sexy, it’s funny and left me perfectly satisfied. The main characters, Wren and Foster, grew up together. When Foster left town, Wren was devastated to loose him. Now, four years later, he’s back after an ugly divorce and he’s determined to make Wren see him as more than a friend. By any means possible. Even if he has to make her agree to fake date him…

    Worship by Ella James

    Worship blew me away. There is no other way of describing it. The story sucked me in and now I can’t get it out of my head. This is another M/M read. Yes, I’m totally hooked on the gay. So sue me. Anyway. The two main characters, Vance and Luke, meet through rather unusal circumstances. In fact, Vance is stranded on a Caribbean island and gets rescued by Luke. Sort of. And yes, that sounds pretty unlikely and silly, but once I got past that itty, bitty, corny detail the story is anything but. The official blurb is pretty vague, and I don’t want to reveal too much of the…

    Bet on Me by Saxon James

    Bet on Me is the newest release from Saxon James, an M/M author who is completely new to me. I’d label the story as a sweet, gay romance with a hint of suspense. And all in all, it was a great read. But I must admit, I chose this read because of the hunk of a man on the cover. I mean, look at those pecs and shoulders! Sure, the level of drool-worthiness of the cover model might be a somewhat subpar way of choosing my reading. But luckily it worked out this time since Bet on Me was pretty awesome. The story’s main characters are Taryn, a professional fotball…

    Love According to Science by Claire Kingsley

    Love According to Science – Claire Kinglsley’s latest release – is a truly delightful read. It’s the story of two nerdy psychology researchers who starts out as rivals but ends up as so much more. Hazel Keigen is a brilliant scientist, smart as a whip and beautiful to boot. When Hazel’s department hires Corban Nash though, Hazel can’t exactly keep up a professional facade. Corban’s research is entirely too un-scientific and his findings completely unsubstantiated. At least according to Hazel. Then Hazel and Corban are forced to work together on a research project. But their professional disagreements and heated discussions provokes way too many contradictory feelings in Hazel. Some of…
