    The Queen and The Homo Jock King (At First Sight #2) by T.J. Klune

    This is the most outrageous book I’ve ever read – well, listened to in this case. It’s over-the-top, un-filtered and inappropriate. It’s absolutely hilarious and I adore it! Synposis: The surface story is about Sanford Stuart, Sandy, a regular guy working as a claims adjuster for an insurance company. Sandy’s alter ego is the fabulous drag queen Helena Handbasket who performs for her adoring fans at the only gay bar in Tuscon. One such fan is Darren Mayne, a delicious homo jock who Sandy detests, while also salivating over. When Jack It, the gay bar, is at risk of being closed down, the owner of the bar comes up with…

    Tell Me It’s Real (At First Sight #1) by T.J. Klune

    T.J. Klune is a true master of over-the-top and entirely inappropriate humour. I adore it, and I snort-laughed so much. It wasn’t pretty. However, I listened to the audio book, with the equally fabulous Michael Lesley narrating. And I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have enjoyed this story half as much if it hadn’t been for his excellent voice acting. Because even if I think Klune is a brilliant writer and the king of immature jokes (of which I’m obviously a fan), if I’d have read this book myself I would probably thought it too much. Too exaggerated. Too silly and fantastical. The combination of Klune and Lesley, though? Effing spectacular!…

    Who We Are (The Seafare Chronicles #2) by T.J. Klune

    Who We Are was everything I expect from a Klune-book and more. It was laughter and tears. It was amazing and lovely. Tragic but also so very wonderful. Epic really. Now, I was a bit disappointed by the prequel, but it’s absolutely essential to have that backstory to be able to enjoy Who We Are fully. So even though the first installment was overly angsty, not as funny as I expect Klune’s books to be, and chock-full of long-winded sentimentality (which isn’t my cup of tea, just FYI), it’s still a great story that you need to read in order to enjoy the awesomeness that is Who We Are. As…

    Bear, Otter, and the Kid (The Seafare Chronicles #1) by TJ Klune

    So, I’m working my way through TJ Klune’s entire bibliography because he’s bloody brilliant. So far, I’ve 5-starred every Klune book I’ve read. Unfortunately I can’t do that with Bear, Otter, and the Kid. This read was captivating, it truly was. But I guess the other Klune-books I’ve read have spoiled me and given me unrealistically high expectations. Because there were unfortunately too many things bringing this story down in my eyes. Also, it was a veritable angst-fest. Synopsis: This is a story of an oblivious, bi (or completely gay? It’s a bit unclear) young man – Bear – whose mom left him to raise his 6-year old brother on…

    The Lightning-Struck Heart by T.J. Klune

    Well, eff me sideways, I wasn’t expecting this! The blurb did in no way prepare me for the awesomeness that is The Lightning-Struck Heart. It was the reviews, the never-ending recommendations and the author that made me click on the Buy now button. That and the credit on my Audible account. Because I’ve been listening my way through this kick-ass story. I don’t tend to gush. But some stories frankly deserve gushing, and this is undoubtedly one of them. However, I wasn’t immediately sucked into the story. Klune’s writing-style takes some getting used to and during the first chapter I was also wondering if I’d accidentally started listening to one…

    Wolfsong by T.J. Klune

    Wolfsong by T.J. Klune is an oldie for sure, but after hearing som many good things about it, reading it and being completely awestruck, I just need to share my thoughts on it. Because this story is utterly overwhelming, there’s just so much to process and appreciate. It’s bloody fabulous is what it is. Objectively, Wolfsong is an M/M shifter romance. But it’s so much more than that. I wouldn’t want this amazing novel to be limited by such a restrictive description. Yes, it’s a love story and yes, one of the guys is a wolf shifter. But this story is about so much more. It’s about growing up, about…
