    Encore (Famous #4) by Eden Finley

    Release date: September 9th This was an awesome read! And hot as all get out. Synopsis: Blake Monroe, former boy band super star come action hero, is persuaded to star in a gay rom-com by his then co-star and cinematic love interest, Jordan Brooks. But when a photo of Blake and Jordan is leaked to the press, they need to go into hiding, despite Blake being straight and him and Jordan only being friends. But what better way to spend the time hiding from the media than by method-acting in order to be more relaxed and natural about kissing and being intimate with another man? Just to be clear. I…

    Dragon Ever After (Here Be Dragons #1) by Louisa Masters

    This read was a pure and utter delight! Just the funny, quirky and ridiculous story I needed. So, yes, I loved it. Technically, this is a new series – even though I believe there’s only one more book planned. But this is a spin-off from the Hidden Species series, and the only thing that really distinguishes it from that series is that the overall story arc was concluded with Sorcerers Always Satisfy. Therefore, I wouldn’t call Dragon Ever After a stand-alone. You won’t be able to appreciate the supporting characters, or the world building, unless you’ve read Hidden Species first. Synopsis: Percy, the retired leader of the Community of Species…

    Ellis Harper’s Shot in the Dark by K. Sterling

    I loved this story. I devoured it in only two sittings because the plot was just too delicious for words. Synopsis: Ellis is a closeted guy who hooks up – anonymously and in the dark – with a guy during a wedding he’s invited to as his friend’s date. His best friend, Alli, who’s newly pregnant and might have blurted out that Ellis was the father of her child. To say things spiral from there is an understatement. Ellis can’t forget about the hot mystery man, and they decide to continue seeing each other even after the wedding weekend is over. But meeting in the dark and keeping their identities…

    Unforgettable (Vino & Veritas #16) by Marley Valentine

    Release Date: August 12th This story was sooo close to getting a 5-star from me. It has the most heart-warming vibe that just saturates the entire read. It’s warm and cosy and I just wanted to wrap myself in Oz and Reeve they were so cute. They’re utterly delightful and I loved them. Synopsis: Oz is this big viking of a guy that has the most tender heart. Reeve is shy and slightly awkward but he immediately sees Oz for the kind person he is and not just his rugged and stacked exterior. These guys meet one night for a hook-up, then the next morning, they go their separate ways.…

    Undone (Vino & Veritas #18) by Leslie McAdam

    Release Date: August 12th This book had all the potential. First-time gay, Gay-For-You, Bi/Gay awakening. Whatever you want to call it, it’s without a doubt, my favourite MM trope. No contest. And the story being part of Sarina Bowen’s True North universe? I was prepared for epic-ness. Synopsis: Gay boy (Murph) running from past mistakes and trying to start over in a new town meets straight (?), suit-wearing insurance salesman (Jason) and they immediately click. But only as roommates, right?  The story started out perfectly with the sparkly and unapologetically out Murph moving in with the buttoned-up, and very straight, Jason. Only, the very first time Jason – who’s most…

    Dear Mr. Brody (For Him #3) by A.M. Johnson

    Release Date: August 5th Wow. This story just made me so darn happy. It has such a hopeful and sweet vibe, but without being mushy or overly sugary. And still, it’s also hot as all get out. It’s such a perfect blend of feelings and naughty I can only say; Congrats Johnson! You really nailed this one. Dear Mr. Brody is a professor-student, age-gap (small one) and bi-awakening story. And it’s positively delicious. Synopsis: Donovan Brody – Van – is newly divorced, a literary agent teaching creative writing as a side-gig. Parker Mills is his student, a gifted writer, and smoking hot. Single for the first time in his adult life,…

    Waylaid (True North #8) by Sarina Bowen

    This is such an awesome read. 4.5 stars! And it intrigued me from the very start. Synopsis: This is the story of Daphne Shipley and Rickie – Dylan Shipley’s roommate/landlord. And there’s so much happening here. Rickie has suffered a mysterious injury leaving him with partial amnesia. Daphne has a psycho ex that’s threatening her and has forced her to relocate to another university. So, naturally, Daphne’s hesitant to trust again and Rickie has issues for miles because of his amnesia. Their growing affection and Rickie’s persistence is just super sweet reading. I must admit, I was really impatient for them to solve their respective “problems” (a.k.a. getting revenge and recovering memories),…

    C*ckblocked (Blockers #1) by K.C. Cassidy (a.k.a Sierra Hill)

    Release Date: 24th of June The premise for C*ckblocked was really promising. The tv heartthrob, closeted Grayson Darling, goes off to a remote location in Ireland. He wants to stay under the radar – and away from paparazzi – and finish writing his screenplay in peace. Then there’s the grumpy B&B owner/sheep farmer Niall who might not know who Grayson is but he sure inspires many of Niall’s shower time self-loving sessions. Grayson can’t come out without ruining his career, and Niall is afraid to put his heart on the line, again. There were a lot a liked about this read, and also a lot that I didn’t like. And,…

    Something Wicked by Robin Moray

    This is truly a little gem. Quick, super sweet and with an unpredictable (in most ways) plot containing witches, a warlock and a witch-hunter. It might be the ultimate enemies-to-lovers scenario; Kevin is a witch – albeit a very weak one – and Peter is the witch-hunter who arrives in Kevin’s hometown hunting for a witch who murdered his mentor. And they are immediately drawn to each other. Peter thinks all witches are evil, but Kevin can’t stay away. He doesn’t really even want to. Meanwhile, Kevin’s siblings (a.k.a. his coven) is trying to find the warlock who appears to kill other witches within their territory. With all the magic…
