Love for the Cold-Blooded, or The Part-Time Evil Minion’s Guide to Accidentally Dating a Superhero by Alex Gabriel

My rating: 5 Stars

Love for the Cold-Blooded

Love for the Cold-Blooded

It’s a not-so-guilty not-so-secret that I have a penchant for quirky titles. It probably started with Dwarf Rapes Nun; Flees in UFO/a Novel of Journalism, and then there was The Aerodynamics of Pork, which introduced me to a writer who went on to give us several more great reads. So, it was almost a given that I would read “Love for the Cold-Blooded…” even before knowing what it was about. Fortunately, my little weakness didn’t let me down. Read more ›

Review – Games of Rome by J.P. Kenwood

Games of Rome (Dominus Book 2) by J.P. Kenwood

My rating: 4 Stars

Games of Rome

Games of Rome

This second book of the five-part Dominus series picks up exactly where the first installment left of: with the death of Gaius’ old friend, and sometimes lover, Lucius. The mystery of who killed Lucius, and why, is a major theme of this book, although the relationship between Gaius and Allerix remains the core of the story. Allerix seems resigned to his fate as Gaius’ slave, although he still plots his revenge against the Roman emperor, and Dominus takes steps to protect his slave’s true identity, a secret that could mean death for both of them if it becomes known. Both men have motives for what they do, but Gaius and Allerix are both struggling against their hearts’ feeling that the other means more to them than they should. Read more ›

Review – The Front Runner by Patricia Neal Warren

The Front Runner by Patricia Neal Warren

My rating: 4.5 Stars

The Front Runner

The Front Runner

This 40 year-old classic deserves to be read, to see how much as changed, and how much hasn’t. While gay men in the USA no longer have to fear being arrested for simply being gay, the sports world is still full of homophobia and discrimination. Read more ›
