    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…

    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),…

    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…

    Coddiwomple by S.E. Harmon

    Coddiwomple is second-chance, M/M romance done right! And thankfully, the preface contained an explanation to the title and its meaning. “To travel in a purposeful manner towards a vague destination”. It wasn’t just good for my non native English speaker self to learn the meaning (and that it wasn’t a commonplace word), but it also captured the mindset of one of the MCs to a tee. Synopsis: Journey (JJ) is a photographer, travelling the world. But when he gets a call that his father’s had a stroke, he returns home to his hometown to help out. Only, it’s not only his family he’s returning to, there’s also his ex fiancé,…

    Bombshells (Brooklyn Bruisers #8) by Sarina Bowen

    Release date: April 13 As usual, I enjoyed the heck out of Sarina Bowen’s writing. And this was such an easy read. The story just pulled me in and I didn’t mind being swept away at all. I really, really liked the fact that Sylvie was a professional athlete. She was so strong and capable and trying to make a name for herself in a sport which is mostly viewed as a male one. That was beyond awesome. Synopsis: This is the story of Sylvie – a hockey goalie who’s earned a spot in a newly founded female hockey team in Brooklyn, and Anton – reformed player and also a…

    When Harry Met Harry by Sydney Smyth

    This is a re-telling of When Harry Met Sally. Obviously. I’m generally not a fan of these kind of re-writes, but this one had gotten some really nice reviews, so I thought I’d give it a shot anyway. And, it was rather great actually. It’s a cute as heck, friends-to-lovers story with a minimum of steam (unfortunately). Synopsis: Harrison “Harry” Fields is a good-natured, music teacher who believes in soulmates. Henry “Harry” Lee is a cynical businessman who doesn’t believe in love. They meet for the first time on flight from Singapore to L.A. And when the plane lands, neither of them wish to ever see the other one again.…

    Not So Sincerely Yours (For Him #2) by A.M. Johnson

    Release Date: March 25th I liked this story a whole lot. I liked the characters. I liked that Anders and Ethan, who didn’t get their happy in the first installment, found each other in this one. And I liked the writing so much. Earlier books by Johnson that I’ve read have had this almost poetic feel to them. The For Him books aren’t like that, but still, sometimes that same style shone through which made me smile every time. The story started off with Anders and Ethan meeting for the first time – and not under the best circumstances. Ethan thinks Anders is an entitled, uptight prick, and Anders thinks…

    Headstrong (Vino & Veritas #3) by Eden Finley

    Release Date: March 22 After more than a few reads that – on paper (ha!) – would be right up my alley but were “just” okay, my book-slump is finally over! Because I pretty much inhaled Headstrong and loved every minute of it! It was exactly what I’ve come to expect from Eden Finley. Humour, awesome characters and sizzling sexytimes. That scene with Whit going down on Rainn for the first time… oh mama. *fanning myself* Synopsis: So there’s Whit, hockey player at Moo U but a farm boy at heart, who’s just come out and decides to visit a gay bar to get rid of his v-card. Then there’s…
