    Face Offs & Cheap Shots by Eden Finley & Saxon James

    Release date: October 5th This was a true happy-read. The entire book, I just felt all warm inside. Sure, there’s snark and banter. And there’s a heck of a lot of sexytimes. But mostly it’s just an altogether feel-good story of two guys falling in love. And I highly recommend it to anyone needing a pick-me-up. Synopsis: Jacobs and Beck are hockey teammates and have always been rivals. Jacobs, attending Colchester University on a Hockey scholarship, despises Beck for his entitled and carefree way of never worrying about consequences. Beck is determined to enjoy himself during College. And one of his favourite pastimes is to get under Jacobs’ skin. They’re…

    Power Plays & Straight A’s by Eden Finley & Saxon James

    Coming June 29th So yeah. This is another big-hot-jock-meets-nerd-and-holy-crap-the-sex kind of story. I read a lot of those. Sorry (not sorry). And as if that’s not enough, in Power Plays & Straight A’s, that awesome trope is merged with the brother’s-best-friend trope. Yum. Since this story is co-written by one of my favourite authors – Eden Finley – this should be the book of the year for me. And it was great, delightful even. But the Finley was toned down. The story was thoroughly sweet and completely angst-free, which, if I may guess, could be Saxon James’ more wholesome influence. And I don’t know how to feel about that. This…

    Power Plays & Straight A’s Cover Reveal!

    Release date June 29th I can’t wait to read this! But also, abs are nice! FOSTER: “Look out for Zach and don’t hit on him.” My brother’s request sounds easy enough. Keep an eye out for his best friend on campus and keep my hands to myself. Easy. Even if Zach is a quintessential nerd, who I’ve always thought was cute, I don’t have the time to think with my … stick. There’s only one stick I should be focused on this year, and that’s my hockey stick. My goal once I graduate is to get an NHL contract. The last thing I need is a distraction. On or off…

    Calling Your Bluff by Saxon James

    This is another buff-athlete-meets-slightly-nerdy-guy romance. I do love that trope. 🙂 It’s a fotball player (the American kind) – Cooper Zane – who meets a teacher – Liam – who also happens to be the ex of Zane’s best friend. Bro code dictates that Liam is off limits to Zane, but even if he wasn’t, Liam won’t date another athlete. He’s looking for a forever guy, and that does not entail being forced back in the closet in order to not damage his partner’s career. Calling Your Bluff is a sweet and very well written romance, no question. It’s the third installment in the Love’s a gamble series, and I…

    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…
