Is this for you?

Get bored of real life situations quick? Even fantasy? If you’ve already read something that involves a love story between a pirate and an alien, I’d be damn surprised.  WARNING: THIS BOOK CONTAINS ALIEN/HUMAN SEX AND WILL EXPOSE YOU TO NEW APPENDAGES, SITUATIONS, EXPERIENCES, AND THE LIKE. IF YOU ARE NOT OPEN MINDED OR HAVE DIFFICULTLY ACCEPTING DIFFERENT/UNIQUE THINGS I DO NOT RECOMMEND READING THIS.

Review:

Aidan Maymon is like a Captain Sparrow but maybe even slightly more sexy and daring. Maymon is a pirate captain with only a few loyal followers and when he is overthrown by one of his most greedy and selfish men he isn’t the least bit surprised. Even though begging could have spared his life, Aidan struggles and fights back until his death, or so it should have been. Maymon believes he has been saved by one of his ancient Cemi Gods but that is hardly the case. What should have been hate for this weird creature that has “saved him” is really just a slight interest that forms into something that could be called love. Maymon’s life after death is even more dangerous than what it was as a pirate. But as Maymon doesn’t seem to know what danger is, he’s all fun and adventure. Maymon will have to learn to live in the future if he wants a life with an Oracan lover.

Rating: * * *

This book is definitely unlike anything I’ve ever read, EVER. I love the main characters especially Maymon who is absolutely hilarious and crazy in his own way. One thing I found myself wondering through certain scenes is, word for word, “WHAT IS DOWN THERE?” I’m not sure exactly if I have figured it out but I came to the conclusion that it was something like how people describe Medusa. If you haven’t figured out what I’m talking about, you will soon find out and surely have the same thoughts as I.

When you read naughty books, are you only focused on the sex? If that’s that case, you’ll love this book. It’s pure sex and nothing but.

Review:

Cameron is a traveling worker and when he ends back up in his home state, he’s in for a hell of a reunion. The sexy but cute boy in the front seat isn’t someone who’s out of his reach. In fact, the beautiful black haired boy, Noah, is someone who’s had a crush on him from the time he was in high school. Cameron finds himself slightly surprised when he finds Noah still willing to have “fun” with him and even more surprised when he keeps coming back. Noah’s worried their relationship is only sex and nothing beyond that and he may just be right. Cameron later notices he was clueless all along, when did their relationship become more than friends who share needs?

Rating: * *

I wasn’t sure whether to rate this book a 2 or 3 because I don’t really think it’s a particularly bad book but I wasn’t really into it so much. It was one of those books where you don’t have to stop yourself from reading too fast but you don’t have to force yourself through it either. I just felt like there wasn’t enough storyline to it and there were only 5 page breaks at most between the sex scenes. Not only that but I felt that it was such a boring storyline; some boy sleeps with a guy over and over but they aren’t lovers and he wishes they could be more. I never did find out what exactly Cameron or Noah’s occupation was, sure it had something to do with swimming but what exactly?

This book is a little dark and maybe even depressing but if you like love with forbidden pasts this is the right thing to read. 

Review:

Leon is an assassin who goes on a personal mission which could be said to be his last. After killing his dead lover’s murderer, he finds himself lost and without the closure he had hoped for. While finding himself chugging alcohol until passing out, this assassin is useless for the organization he works for. Luckily, he has one chance to clean himself up when they send him to a peaceful place in Alaska. Leon isn’t a hunter but a bit of a rusty assassin, so when he’s attacked by a bear he finds himself in danger that he can’t handle without a gun. Luck is on his side for he is saved by a wounded soul named Grim. Grim takes care of Leon for quite awhile and before he knows it, he’s fallen in love for the sweet and somewhat needing boy. But both men have pasts shrouded in darkness and if they want to stay together they need to survive the last battles connected to those pasts. Holding on to the happiness they share is the greatest gift they could ask for. 

Rating: * * * *

I can’t say that this book had me on edge, most of the time I had a feeling that I’d know what was going to happen next but there was definitely a time when I was anxious to figure out what was going to go on. Once I found out about Grim and the way he acted towards his past lover, I thought that he’d killed him but I was surprised that it didn’t explain his death more. All in all, I thought it was a good story and I’m glad that it lasted long enough for the both of them to almost completely let go of their pasts. 

“The Boy Next Door” G.A. Hauser

                               


Is this for you?

While this book may not have any fantasy, it still has an interesting story for revolving around a situation that could happen to anyone. If you like romantic but depressing real life stories, it’s guaranteed you’ll like this.

Review:

Brandon and Zach are not only next door neighbors but the best of friends. Or so everyone thinks. By the time both boys are at the age of 17, they realize that they don’t think of each other as innocently as normal friends should. While their hormones are at their peak, they can no longer hold back their feelings for the other. A dare leads to something much more and before they know it, they’ve fallen desperately in love. But they can’t keep the secret long enough, for their parents find out and they are separated. Worry not; Brandon’s story turns out to be a happy ending after all.

Rating: * * *

Honestly, when I first started reading this, I didn’t think I’d like it much. Thankfully, I started liking the bond the two boys had and I was hoping they’d get more involved. I have to say I didn’t really expect the story to be as simple as it was but it wasn’t so bad for a lifelike story. It kept me entertained and I never put reading the book off so that’s a good thing.  

"Year of The Cat" Selah March

                               

Is this for you?

Have a thing for fairy tales that are slightly twisted to obtain more excitement from the reader? This book is based on the French fairy tale of “Puss in Boots” that expresses the idea of the servant becoming the master and the master serving.

Review:

An innocent and rather ignorant Etienne is forced to flee from his home after the death of his father for suspicions of his brothers’ murderous intent. Etienne makes his way to an abandoned cottage and stumbles upon a cat, which ends up becoming his only companion. Although he comes to find that this isnt just a cat, but a man who is cursed with a feline form in the daylight. Etienne grows immensely attached to his cruel and beastly friend enough to trust him in all things. Things take a strange turn of events when Etienne is unknowingly sold off as a pleasurer for a duke and the-beast-who-was-no-beast actually is a beast no more. Etienne’s simple mind is eventually put to the test in able to return to his lost lover but Etienne can only hope he can make it in time, for his lover is doing worse than he could imagine. 

Rating: * * * *

It was sad to find out that this book was shorter than I expected. The relationship in this story was definitely different from the usual ones we know of and that aspect drew me in. The characters were also oddly addicting by the way they contrasted each other so much. In a way I wish there was a sequel of some sort but sadly enough, there isnt one to be expected. 

"Twilight: Bay City Paranormal Investigations (Book 3)" Ally Blue

                               

Is this for you?

Don’t let the name scare you, I assure you there is no sparkling involved in this book besides for the simple shine of sunshine on freshly lain snow. While letting that scary moment pass, let me give you a question. Have you ever went to a lodge or camp and were filled with curiosity of all the possibilities of paranormal happenings? I’m sure everyone who loves ghosts or creepy unexplainable things has. Well this is just what happens here. BCPI goes on another adventure to hunt the paranormal but this time it takes place at Sunset Lodge which should be a very peaceful place.

Review:

Not too long has passed since Dean had become a member of the BCPI family and the group has taken adventurous children to explore a hotel very well known for it’s residual hauntings. But early on, another matter comes up and the team has no choice but to split up. The mischeivious gay threesome of Dean, Bo, and Sam head off to a lodge far in the mountains before a big storm. The three could be said to be trapped at the lodge without being able to contact anyone from the outside world unless it’s with the office radio. As they investigate, Bo notices a mysterious, electrifying ache in his previously bitten leg. The group’s suspicions about the hauntings also start changing. Not only do they run into a dismembered body, but another body is found. Just as the team isn’t getting any more clues about the case, all Hell breaks loose. As they begin to relax, Bo and Sam are caught in the act of a public display of affection. They never would’ve guessed that homophobia could be so dangerous.

Rating: * * *

This seemed to be a filler for the series so it wasn’t as exciting as the other ones but it builds the characters personalities more.

"Raised By Wolves: Treasure (Book 3)" W.A. Hoffman

Love pirates? Or maybe gay pirates? This book contains pirates, philosophy, and all the fun and adventure everyone wishes they could experience. 

Review:

Will and Gaston, still in a struggle to win inheritance from their fathers, do their best to please them in order to get what they want. Soon enough, the Marquis de Tervent comes to see his only remaining son to see him fit for his heir. But while Gaston’s father is forgiven and becoming closer to his son, Will’s father seems to be taking more violent actions. Not only do the two buccaneer lovers find out that they’re fathering children, but Will’s father has also put a price on their heads, including their friends’. The group can only try the best they can to protect small babes, wives - though unwanted, friends, and themselves from the wrath of the English lord.  

Rating: * * * *

The characters in this series are definitely easy to get attached to and difficult to let go of. I have to say that it was a very unpredictable book and I was shocked throughout by the actions I thought some characters would never attempt to do. 

"What Hides Inside: Bay City Paranormal Investigations (Book 2)" Ally Blue

                            

Is this for you?

Interested in possible other dimensions? Ever think that something otherworldly was behind a mysterious case? If you love creepy stories, you should give this series a try.

Review:

Sam and Bo’s relationship gets more involved since Sam’s first job at Oleander House. Although Sam is an open gay, Bo is just getting used to the fact that he is gay. Bo and Sam’s physical/sexual relationship only takes place in the secrecy his office door provides. The stress that comes from hiding their relationship from their friends builds until things between the two are broken off. Luckily, the new member who is to replace Amy isn’t just an overly open flirt. With the slight help of Dean, the new investigator, Sam’s relationship is given another chance. But while there are still relationship problems, there are also those that are work related. The new job they’re given that takes place in an old Spanish monastery that is now a high school, seems slightly familiar to their last experience. Sam can only hope that he can close the door to the other world like he did before without costing another life. Will Sam be able to close the door with all the stress his mind is going through or will it be too late and have them lose someone else? 

Rating: * * * *

This book was almost just as good as the previous in this series but this one contains more relationship content rather than investigating. The outcome of the job they accept leads them to believe that portals are becoming a bit too common, leading me to believe that there will be more of these cases in the future and that portals will be their main enemy. I can only imagine the next books will get more sexual and maybe even to the point where psychic abilities will have a part in sex to add to the excitement as well. 

"Oleander House: Bay City Paranormal Investigations (Book 1)" Ally Blue

                            

Is this for you?

Do you watch Ghost Hunters, A Haunting, Most Haunted, or Paranormal State? If the mysterious and unexplained is your thing then this book should be yours.

Review:

Sam is a new member to a paranormal investigation group and his first job is at a house everyone calls The Oleander House. Sam finds himself enjoying the company of each in his new group and one in particular more than the others. Sam soon discovers that he may be falling for a certain man that should be off limits and later suspects that he may be psychic. As everyone’s experiences get more exciting and the heat between Sam and the desired Bo rises, Sam’s twisted dreams also start to get out of control. Lust, desire, and fear continue to grow and Sam begins to lose himself to it all. He can only hope that fighting his desires will be the worst that could possibly happen in Oleander House.

Rating: * * * *

This book definitely drew me in completely after about 2-3 chapters. Ally Blue is definitely one of my most favourite writers whose books involve boy love. I can definitely say that her books are unique and I love how she mixes real life situations with a touch of fantasy or paranormal encounters. 

"The Pet" Nix Winter

                       

Is this for you?

Like slave/master relationships? Are you into space traveling and galactic wars? If you answered “yes” to one of these then you MUST read this.

Review:

The universe we know is much different than the futuristic one portrayed in this book. Alix, a high class Pet that doesn’t believe in the Gods his planet was raised to believe and worship, gets tied up in a war that he doesn’t belong in. His master, Tristan, is not your average free man. Tristan and his vampire friend, Valentine, do all they can to stop their precious Alix from becoming like the last experience. Sun destroyers, secret plotting, and even secret cloning are the last of Tristan’s concerns when Alix is in danger from pretending to be a free man. 

Rating: * * * *

This book is absolutely entrancing; by the time I had gotten a quarter of the way through, I couldn’t stop reading. The high technology based universe that is able to create genetically modified people and the futuristic war to keep suns from being destroyed makes this book like no other I have read.
