    Pretty Policeman by Fifer Rose

    Estimated release date: December 1st 2022 My oh my. This was an amazing read! It’s not profound or anything, but the way it engaged me was something else! It was all suck-me-in-take-me-for-a-ride-then-spit-me-out engaging. And I still haven’t recovered fully. Now, this story requires you to suspend disbelief. Which is quite alright with me, because it’s so very well done. It’s M/M, Mafia-police Detective romance. I didn’t even know that was a thing before Pretty Policeman, but this book opened my eyes and introduced me to a whole new world (Craving? Kink?). So there’s Micah, a very young Detective (I’ll get back to the young part later) in NY. Micah’s gone…

    Tallowwood by N.R. Walker

    Amazing read! Also tragic, horrible, beautiful, angst-y and – towards the end – hopeful. The worst tear-jerker ever and I was completely mesmerized. Synopsis: August Shaw, a Sydney cold-case Detective, buries himself in his work. After suffering a terrible loss, he has put life on hold and instead dedicates all his time to solve murders who are forgotten by everyone except the victims’ families. A series of deaths of young, gay men in particular haunts him. He’s convinced it’s the work of a serial killer, but the deaths aren’t even recognized as murders. Then human remains are found in the Tallowwood reserve, matching the cases August investigates. Jacob Porter who…

    Violent Desire (Blackrose Brotherhood #1) by Ariana Nash

    There are so many elements of this story that I adore. A troubled detective with past trauma. Check. A sexy supernatural who can’t leave said detective alone. Check. Morally grey main characters. Check. Sexual tension and a bad guy with an unhealthy obsession with one of the MCs. Oh yes please and thank you. Synopsis: Eric Sharpe, detective at the NYPD, takes the law into his own hands when his partner’s murderer can’t be brought to justice. And in doing so, he inadvertently puts himself in the middle of a vampire show-down. Zaine is a member of the Blackrose brotherhood, and a vampire. His job is to track and kill…

    The Spooky Life (The Spectral Files #4) by S.E. Harmon

    Expected release date: April 18th I just love these guys so much! Rain and Danny are hands down one of my favourite couples ever, and The Spooky Life did not disappoint. In this installment, the guys are planning their wedding. Danny’s mom goes into some sort of wedding frenzy, and the end result is hilarious. The guys tries to fit in all the wedding planning in between working, but neither of them really have the patience, or interest, in selecting wedding invites or choosing chairs for the ceremony. It’s cute, funny, and soo very Rain and Danny. The scene where they’re on a wedding cake tasting is probably my favourite…

    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…

    Chrysalis (The Formicary #1) by S.E. Harmon

    Release date: September 1st This was an unexpected story. Maybe because this is a bit of a genre change for Harmon. It’s still MM, sure. But the romance is not center stage here. Instead, this is more of a suspense bordering on Sci-Fi. And it’s also a cliff-hanger. Sort of. Anyway, the story sucked me in right from the start. The MC wakes up in a hospital, having been shot in the head, and with no memory of what happened. Christian – Chris – has amnesia. There’s his doctor (boy)friend, Grayson, who appears to be keeping something from him. Chris doesn’t know who wants him dead. But he knows he can’t rely on anybody else to…

    Dark Summer by S.J. Coles

    Release Date: July 27th This is the sequel to Blood Winter – which I thought was rather amazing in a dark and despondent sort of way. Dark Summer has that same almost dystopian feel and it’s all because of Alec’s mood. He’s the sole narrator of the story and thus sets the tone for the entire book. He’s as anti-social as they come and broody as all get out. Borderline depressive actually. Synopsis: The story pretty much starts where Blood Winter ended. Terje has returned and they’re now trying to start a life together. In secret since no one can know that Terje is still alive. Alec’s and Terje’s differences…

    Not Dead Yet (Not Dead Yet #1) by Jenn Burke

    This story has so much going for it. A living ghost. Witches. Supernatural beings. A murder mystery. And the most delicious thing of all, the ex lovers who are forced together by some shitty circumstances and who may or may not reignite their old spark. So of course I devoured this book. Synopsis: Wes is a Retrieval Specialist (read thief) who uses his special ability to turn ghost as a means to excel at his job. When he witnesses a murder during a break-in, he reaches out to his ex-boyfriend, Detective Hudson Rojas. Hudson is still hot AF, but any thoughts Wes might have had about maybe rekindling the old…

    Love is a Stranger (More Heat Than the Sun #1) by John Wiltshire

    What a ride this story was! I was completely sucked into this book. This is an extremely well-written story in every way. The plot is captivating and intricate, and there is no way of figuring out where the story is headed in advance. Which is awesome. The story premise kept shifting, and right when I thought I had it all figured out, the story took yet another turn. Synopsis: Ben is an ex-SAS soldier recruited to a black-ops team within the British Intelligence Agency. He’s also involved with his boss, Sir Nikolas Mikkelsen, who happens to be married. It’s only supposed to be a physical relationship, but Ben has fallen…

    Bad Judgment by Sidney Bell

    This book is a gem. It was so much more than I expected and an emotional ride for sure. I knew going in that it would have a strong hurt-comfort theme and also contain some triggers such as domestic abuse and sexual assault. But that still didn’t prepare me for the ups and downs of this story. Let’s just say I felt so much during this read. Which is pretty much the highest praise you could ever give a book. Synopsis: Brogan Smith works in private security, and has just started a new assignment – guarding one of the higher-ups of a weapons manufacturer who’s been receiving death threats. It’s…
