    Just Watch Me by Lee Blair

    Release Date: January 27th Short, sweet and (unfortunately) surprisingly low on the steam scale. That’s my one sentence summary of Just Watch Me. Synopsis: Jesse is a lonely guy who wants to break his ennui but doesn’t dare step out of his comfort zone. But when a hot new neighbour moves into the apartment facing Jesse’s own, he gets just the incentive he needs. After accidentally spying the neighbour railing another man – and getting caught enjoying the show – Jesse and his neighbour realizes they both like watching each other. Now, I don’t mind sweet, not at all. But considering the title and the blurb, I’m sort of inclined to…

    The Best Men by Sarina Bowen & Lauren Blakely

    Release date: January 18th Right, so. I’ll be honest. The first few chapters I thought Bowen and Blakely had dropped the ball with this one. Yes, I know, that’s totally implausible but sometime it’s bound to happen, right? Wrong. They knew exactly what they were doing! This is the forced-proximity trope at its best. Two best men, working together to prepare for the wedding of their best friend and sister, respectively. Mark is a recently divorced, single dad who wants to explore his bisexuality. Asher is a former jock who’s always up for a good time. Alone in a small guest house they’re just going to have some fun. It’s…

    Evil Omega by S. Rodman

    Release Date: January 14th I loved the premise of this story! An evil, badass Omega as opposed to the usual kind and submissive ones. Awesome! And in many ways, the read did deliver. So, Silas Northstar is a shifter and a necromancer. Outcast, despised, and feared. He also has a propensity for getting captured and that’s how the story begins. With Silas having been captured by the Westlake Pack, and Dean – a pack alpha – literally dragging Silas off of the pack head Alpha. It’s a strong start to the story, and gets even more interesting when Silas’ heat starts when he’s in Dean’s custody. The dynamic between Silas…

    The Worst Guy by Kate Canterbary

    I loooved this book. So much. Sebastian Stremmel is the very definition of grumpy, and the heroine – Sara Shapiro – is as messy and damaged as any of Canterbary’s characters have ever been. So yum! Synopsis: One perpetually scowling trauma surgeon gets in to it with one (usually) people-pleasing, good girl plastic surgeon. The end result is conflict management therapy for the both of them. Eight weeks with forced proximity can’t possibly end well. That they end up having hate sex after their second session doesn’t mean anything. Right? I’ve been waiting a long time for Stremmel’s story, but I was still surprised at how much I loved him.…

    Saint (Priset #3) by Sierra Simone

    Emotional overload. That’s what this read was. Feelings all over the place. And even if I’m conflicted about some of the content, just the magnitude of feels this story brought me makes it an indisputable 5-star. Synopsis: Aiden was always the fun guy, the life of the party. Happy, charming and living fast. Until one night changed his life and he left to become a monk. His boyfriend Elijah was left floundering without a proper explanation or goodbye. And now, 5 years later, Elijah comes to visit Aiden at his cloister, telling him he’s getting married. Only, neither of the men have gotten over the other. And despite the dramatic…

    Shiloh’s Secret (Out in Austin #2) by K.D. Ellis

    Release Date: November 16th I was surprised and delighted by this story. I was expecting something cliché and juicy – which is both what I got and what I wanted – but I wasn’t expecting the high quality writing or the well developed storyline. So, win! Synopsis: Shiloh is the spoiled, wild-child of a corporate big-wig that Gage Tucker – retired army vet and personal security officer – is assigned to protect against a stalker. Only, the Shiloh that Gage gets to know isn’t at all how the tabloids portray him. There’s a depth to him that isn’t instantly obvious what with his pink hair and makeup. And as Shiloh’s…

    Cross (The Formicary #2) by S.E. Harmon

    Release Date: November 3rd To say I’m feeling conflicted would be an understatement. I was dying for the resolution of this story, and in many ways Cross did deliver. But also… all those plot holes… Synopsis: This book continues the story that started with Chrysalis. Chris and Gray are held against their will at the Formicary, and Chris desperately tries to find a way to get his lover and ex-boyfriend free. But to do that, he needs to figure out what’s really going on at the compound and exactly what was done to him. His memory loss prevents him from piecing it all together, and he’s starting to run out…

    Conquest (The Four Horsemen #1) by Sienna Moreau

    I was sucked into this read immediately. The storyline felt fresh and interesting and the characters were compelling. Also, it’s been a while since I’ve read about angels and demons. And just maybe that could also explain my instant infatuation. So. Conquest, the bad boy in this romance, is one of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. And he is bad for real. As in, killing people, blood, gore and intestines bad. But, this is the weird part, I still rooted for him from the start. Raziel is an angel. Super sweet and kind. But he’s broken, with no power and no wings. Until he’s given a special mission on…

    Ethan & Jag Destroy the World by Maz Maddox

    Release Date: October 26th This book was a delight. Quirky, amusing and sweet all-around. Apart from all the references to blood, guts and gore that is, but that’s what you get when one of the MCs is a demon. The book is a two-parter, where the first part – Demon All the Way – was previously published, and the second part – Ethan and Jag Destroy the World – is an expansion and continuation of the first story. To me, both parts were brand new, though, and story-wise they melded together perfectly. If Maddox hadn’t explained the division in the preface I wouldn’t have noticed. As all of Maddox’s earlier…

    Boyfriend (Moo U #0) by Sarina Bowen

    Release date: October 12th This was exactly the kind of fuzzy, feel-good story I needed. It’s been a while since I read college romance, but right now I can’t think of a reason why. Because this story was adorable and I loved it. Synopsis: Abbi is a full-time student while working as a server at the Biscuit. Weston is a hockey-star, Biscuit regular, and heart-throb of the Moo U campus. When Abbi realize that it’s Weston who’s posted the flyer offering himself up as a Thanksgiving date / fake boyfriend for a night, she can’t help herself. Of course she hires him to come along to her step-dad’s Thanksgiving dinner.…
