After mistakenly kissing a straight guy, Reggie expects Shohei to run the other way—not continue their fledgling friendship like nothing happened. Now if only Reggie can stop thinking about how Shohei’s lips tasted.

Shohei has never thought of himself as anything other than straight, but he can’t seem to forget the kiss he shared with Reggie. When Reggie volunteers to help him experiment with his newfound curiosity, he doesn’t resist the temptation.

It’s just a little bit of experimenting between friends, right?

A geeky, slow-burn bisexual awakening MM romance with a HEA and no cliffhangers set in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Eden Finley handles a sensitive subject with care and love

UnspokenVow Ebook
Unspoken Vow
by Eden Finley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m wordless. This book has essentially left me speechless with just how much justice was done to such a difficult subject.

It can’t be read alone, imho. You need to have read Law’s story first to have a full understanding of how Anders’ life has been one of simply existing for the last five years.

There are trigger warnings, they need paying attention to. Eden Finley deals with some of the harshest forms of mental trauma in this book with a sensitivity that is second to none.

I’m not going to mention much about them, this is a narrative that needs to be experienced alongside Brody’s discovery of Anders’ past and his issues.

I will say though, it’s not a depressing book, there is such hope and love throughout that it really does make your heart sing.

Jocelynn & Rinda open this new series with a cracking good read

Something About Jace (Pineapple Grove #1)Something About Jace by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

From the minute he almost stole the show as a guest star in Dominic and Abe’s book Sadistic Sherlock, I’ve been hoping we’d get Trent’s book.

Jocelynn and Rinda use it to kick off their new Pineapple Cove series set in sunny Florida and it’s a great introduction with a new set of characters to fall in love with.

They even manage to add in a bit of suspense with a secondary subplot involving art vandalism which ties in with Trent’s love interest Jace’s sister.

And speaking of Jace, he was a sweetheart and just the right person to spark Trent’s interest and to allow the global superstar movie actor the freedom to be himself.

The tension in this is all relatively low key, concentrating on the relationship and the impact on Trent’s career when he comes out as bisexual. It was handled with ease by these two talented authors and felt organic and not there just for the plot.

The sex is, as expected with these two, volcanic. I’m sure they deliberately seek ways in which they can get us dedicated fans of theirs to shout out loud in joy!

This book is no exception and the chair and mirror combo in this one rocketed to the top of the list of seriously sexy times!

I’ve five starred this one, as I have most of their books, because it was a read in one go and I finished it at 3am this morning and loved every bit of it 🙂

Rainbow Place #2 is as delightful as the first one!

Safe Place (Rainbow Place, #2)Safe Place by Jay Northcote

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

Jay’s second instalment in his Rainbow Place series is a sweet slow burn romance with a young adult feel which sits alongside Seb and Jason’s perfectly.

Alex is an absolute sweetheart, almost 18 and living with a homophobic father and a less than supportive mother and just finding his way with his sexual experience.

Cam’s six years older but still only in his early 20s and his attraction to Alex is complicated by his fears that it’ll ruin their friendship

I could understand Cam’s point, he’d lost a friend when he was younger after their relationship turned sexual, but I have to say, I wanted to thump him at times!

One thing I always love with Jay’s books is that they always feel so very real, like he’s writing about a bunch of people he met in the pub last week or who live in the next town over, and this book is no exception.

I love the Rainbow Place series and am looking forward to seeing what comes next. Dylan and the mysterious shy older customer perhaps? Or Hayden’s adventures at college?

Either way, I know it will be a book I’ll look forward to reading.

I loved everything about this historical romance

PromisesPromises by Ruby Moone

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I love a good historical romance and every time I pick up a book by Ruby Moone she gives me just that and Promises is no exception.

It’s a truly gorgeous romance set in the English countryside at the time of the Napoleonic Wars and it just made my heart happy.

Sebastian and Charles are a wonderful pair and I loved the secondary characters and would love a book on just how they got together (hint, hint Ruby 😉 )

Everything about this wee novella is just gorgeous.

Begging Ben Teaser #1:

Waking up after a night of drinking? Fun times.

Ben’s pulse rang in his ear. He shifted slightly, foot moving the sheets and funnelling air over his body—

An arm tightened around him, and Ben froze.

What. The. Hell.

With a shaky breath, he absorbed the details. The arm strapped across his chest; the boner pressing against the small of his back; the steady breathing drifting through the back of his hair. The heady scent of Landon cloaked around him, musky, traced with citrus.

He screwed his eyes shut tightly, pulling the pieces of last night together. There’d been puns and drinking games, and a wedding ceremony in the twenty-four-hour chapel.

No, wait. That last part was a bizarre dream.

Choked by their pasts, they dream of a better life . . . and

Charm each other into submission.

Will their pasts ruin what they have, or will they grow together?

C is for Challenging Chance.

Challenging Chance Teaser #2:

Brook pulled him tighter by the lapels of his suit, returning the kiss. He pulled back, breath drizzling over Chance’s wet lips. Brook’s eyes held a ray of earnestness. Something soft and unspoken drifted between them but Chance couldn’t quite grasp it. He frowned and stepped back. Ran a hand through his hair and glanced at himself in the mirror. Lips red, cheeks flushed—and he was grinning.

“Never stop smiling like that,” Brook whispered, sliding behind him, arms circling his waist to undo the jacket button. “You look amazing. I’d like to see that last jacket on you though. To make an informed decision.”

Informed decision, his tight ass.

He smirked at Brook in the reflection of the mirror. The sales assistant knocked on the door. Chance called out, “Just trying on the last jacket.”

“If you need any help . . .”

Brook drew off the jacket, palms sweeping over his shoulders down to his forearms.

“I’m fine, thanks.” Chance hoped he hadn’t croaked on that last sentence. Heels tapped across marble floor, growing fainter.

Tropes: Alpha male, millionaire bad boy, athlete, help/comfort

Themes: Basketball, coming out
