Blurb

Drag goddess, Ursula Moolay, left Kentucky as fast as her size twelve pumps could carry her and has created a new life for herself in Los Angeles. Here, she has found herself surrounded by a group of people with their own secrets and lies:

A daytime Soap stud hiding in the Hollywood closet.

A reality television producer prepared to destroy his star.

An aging showgirl- the complex’s mother hen, fighting to survive.

A married male escort desperately hiding his profession from his pregnant wife.

And finally, Ursula, pulled into a terrifying ordeal of drugs, murder, and deception as she grapples with her own identity.

Enter the world of red carpet meltdowns, sex tapes, shopping with drag queens, earthquakes, mortgages and murder.

Can they survive or will they each fall into the cracks of LA’s fault lines?

My favourite Souls of Chicago one yet

Renewing the Soul (Souls of Chicago, #4)Renewing the Soul by Annabella Michaels

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Finally we get Rocko’s story and discover the painful upbringing which hides behind the outwardly brash and sexually confident drummer.

I loved this one, it had limited angst, more a case of Rocko going back to his roots as Riley, having arrested twice when a drugs overdose put him at rock bottom. There were no annoying misunderstandings or plot points at 70% just to ramp up the tension.

Lachlan was a perfect partner for Riley, steady, willing to be patient and strong, having dealt with his own demons after the death of his brother, captured by insurgents and killed while serving in the Royal Air Force.
I’d been wanting Lachlan’s story since we found out more about him in Mitch and Landon’s book.

This one was a delight, as two men who’d been wounded found the perfect partner to help them restore their souls and give them the strength to live each day in the best possible way.

The sex is gorgeously written, switching between stupendously hot and heart-meltingly sweet, these two knew how to turn on the tension and the heat. The poolside escapade was probably my favourite.

Great addition to the series and now I’m intrigued by the lead in to book five featuring Landon’s right hand man Akio and one of the many Greene family members.

What a pleasant surprise this book turned out to be

Given the CircumstancesGiven the Circumstances by Brad Vance

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’ve never read this author so I had no preconceived ideas about what I’d be reading and so it was a very pleasant surprise to get a well written exploration of the pressures of fame in the sporting world for two gay men.

I loved Roger, strong reliable steadfast and true, secure in his talent and the support of his father. But Brian, oh how I wanted to hug Brian and tell him it would get better if he could just believe in himself.

I loved the world setting, I loved that there wasn’t an overt focus on the institutionalised homophobia found in big sports like American Football and baseball. I loved Jacob, Roger’s dad, who was the perfect role model and I loved Joe, who gave Brian the other father figure he’d been missing.

This book is written like a series of vignettes, peeking into bits of Roger and Brian’s lives and it worked really well. It never felt disjointed and watching their sexual and loving relationship develop over time was a clever way of drawing out the narrative.

The sex was hot, hot, hot, Roger loving how Brian just took control and made him fly. But the scenes during Brian’s worst times, when they would just hold each other were also beautifully told.

The ending felt earned, a true payoff for both men.
