Book Review: When Heaven Strikes by F.E. Feeley Jr

I was scared to read this one at first. The striking image on the front cover hinted at a plot concerning wild weather, but I could have been wrong. It could have been an allegory for the chaos that religious fervour can wreak on innocent lives. What if I was disappointed? Turns out, it isContinue reading “Book Review: When Heaven Strikes by F.E. Feeley Jr”

Book Review: Cursed by Sid Love writing as Kris Sawyer

I was gifted an ARC of this book for an honest and fair review.This is an interesting one, a shifter/fantasy MM story with no pounding sex or rock hard abs, despite the misleading cover. In fact, most of the usual shifter tropes are missing, which makes a refreshing change, and yet it is still undeniablyContinue reading “Book Review: Cursed by Sid Love writing as Kris Sawyer”

Book Review: Pregnant For The Alpha by Judith Shale

This book was given as an ARC by the author for an honest and fair review It is fair to say I had fairly low expectations, given my previous experiences with MPREG books. (One didn’t actually have any MPREG in it. The alpha gets the Omega up the duff off-screen and then voila! The kidContinue reading “Book Review: Pregnant For The Alpha by Judith Shale”

Book Review: The Stark Divide by J. Scott Coatsworth

The author gifted an ARC of this novel for an honest and fair review. Publication date October 2017. Sci-fi can be a little po-faced at times, or quirky to the point of artifice. It can be difficult to strike the balance between intelligent story-telling and dumbing down the science-y bits for the masses. This authorContinue reading “Book Review: The Stark Divide by J. Scott Coatsworth”

Spinning The Record: Stories by Robert Hyers

This review first appeared on the WROTE Podcast website, where Robert Hyers will be interviewed in September! Don’t let the rather lofty blurb put you off. Robert Hyers’ anthology of short stories is a pleasure to read. Amidst the pin-sharp observations and savage wit, there are also gripping, staggeringly-detailed and well-written tales, all set amidstContinue reading “Spinning The Record: Stories by Robert Hyers”

An Asian Minor: The True Story of Ganymede (Audiobook) by Felice Picano

This book was originally written in 1981 by Felice Picano, and details the early life and career of Ganymede, as told by the alluring boy in his own words. It is extremely well-written, a colourful, ribald account of his escapades as he fights off the attentions of men of all rank and age. His beautyContinue reading “An Asian Minor: The True Story of Ganymede (Audiobook) by Felice Picano”

His Competent Woman by Ellen Whyte

This is the first in a new genre for Ellen Whyte, who is better known as dark romance/suspense author AJ Adams. I was expecting great things of this book, which is a fairly quick read at 100 pages, and I wasn’t disappointed. This is a hugely enjoyable addition to the popular BBW-Billionaire genre, with anContinue reading “His Competent Woman by Ellen Whyte”

Angels Fall by N.S. Beranek

This book is like walking through a Mardi Gras festival; colourful, confusing and fantastical, laced with horror and throbbing with erotic promise. It is worth noting that the book is written in the present tense, which puts the reader right in the heart of Beranek’s world from the get go. The blurb assumes a lotContinue reading “Angels Fall by N.S. Beranek”
