    Hard Knox (Havenwood #3) by Riley Hart

    This is a bi-awakening read that will melt your heart and and warm your insides. In a good way. Up until previously I actually avoided books by Riley Hart. And now, I’m kicking myself over that fact. I mean, Hart’s books are always highly rated on vendor-sites and are recommended on all the book forums. But somehow, I had gotten it into my head that her stories were always sickly sweet, low-angst and without any drama. Which I equated to boring. I still don’t know if my preconceived idea of Hart’s books always being sweet, low-angst stories is true or not since Hard Knox was both of those things. But it…

    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…

    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…

    Just Be You by M. E. Parker

    Right. I hadn’t meant to write this review. Or rather, I hadn’t really planned on reading Just Be You by M.E. Parker, not just yet anyway. I have a lot of other books way higher up on my to-read list. However, I had such a craving for some Parker writing I couldn’t stop myself. In truth I was holding out for her next release in the Gilcrest Guys series, Resisting Rein, but that release appears to have been postponed. Just Be You is a lovely romance. It’s about Scott Cohen, musical genius, Grammy nominee and gay. And about his brother’s best – and also straight – friend, Marshall, who Scott’s…

    Only Ever You by C. D. Reiss

    This is a sugary sweet lovestory that will be available July 9. It’s about two childhood friends, Rachel and Sebastian, and their unconventional way to a happily ever after. As teenagers, they signed a contract promising to marry each other if they both were still single at 30. Then life happened, they were separated in college, lived in different cities and had relationships. More or less forgetting each other. Then one christmas, when they’re 30, they meet again. And they decide to honor the contract. I’m very conflicted about this read. It’s just so … sweet. Too sweet for me I realize. I love romance, but I very much prefer…

    Seven Shades of You by A. M. Johnson

    Seven Shades of You is the second installment in the Twin Hearts series. The first one, Let there be light, simply blew me away, and I expected nothing less of Seven Shades of You. I was not disappointed. Seven Shades is the love story of Indie and Kai. They’re both College students and couldn’t be more dissimilar at a first glance. Indie is an art-student. She’s bipolar with psychotic tendencies and uses her art as an outlet and a countermeasure. She sees the world in different colours than most, and fights a constant battle against her inner demons. Kai on the other hand is one of the best on the…

    Let there be light by A. M. Johnson

    Let there be light is more than a story of first love. So much more. It’s overwhelming, devastating and beautifully poetic. There’s so much emotion. Darkness and light. Let there be light is the story about two college students, Royal and Camden, and the slow unfolding of their relationship. Royal is an easy-going, swim scholarship student. Camden is a fiercly talented pianist, who – as a coping mechanism – keeps himself emotionally disconnected from the world. These two polar opposites meet by chance and just like magnets, they’re drawn to each other. But Royal has never been attracted to a guy before, and Camden has kept himself apart, living in…
