Review - Brave Boy by K.M. Neuhold

My rating:

Emerson dreams of having a Daddy to take of him. Unfortunately, he's extremely shy, due in large part to a stutter that gets worse when he's nervous, and he always gets really nervous Kiernan. The business partner of Sterling's Daddy is everything that Emerson could want in a Daddy, but he can barely speak in front of the big man. Sterling suggests that Emerson try chatting up potential daddies online to build up his confidence.

Review - Heart of Ice by Angello Adrien

My rating:

Valentino is still in a sort of self imposed isolation after his fight with the demon manticore, in which he revealed his true nature to those closest to him. But he can't cut himself off forever, and the impending visit by vampire royals combined with the mysterious death of a high society young woman means that Valentino must resume his duties as both a detective and consort to the Guardian Aladar.

Review - Stop Cock by JL Merrow

My rating:

Tom and Paul are looking forward to a romantic honeymoon in Sorrento but things take a disappointing turn when Paul's old school friend Wayne, who bullied Tom in school, shows up at breakfast the first morning, staying in the same hotel. The situation doesn't exactly improve when Wayne falls to his death from the hotel terrace a few nights later. It's hard for the pair not to look into the man's death, especially when it comes to light that Wayne may have had plans that involved Tom and some local gangsters.

Review - Captivated by A.C. Thomas

My rating:

Doctor Theophrastus ‘Theo’ Campbell is a linguist from the Core world of Britannia. He's considered brilliant, by those who haven't met him, with a knowledge of many of the nearly extinct old Earth languages of far-flung humanity. Theo is the twin brother of Ari, from the first book in this series, Restricted, but while the two may be identical in appearance, their personalities are an entire universe apart. Where Ari was very introverted, Theo is extremely extroverted and hyperactive, seemingly incapable of being quiet or still for very long.

Review - Stud by K.M. Neuhold

My rating:

West was attracted to bar owner Sawyer the first time they met, but the fifteen year age gap between them made Sawyer turn him down, repeatedly. The two decided to remain “just friends” yet West still has feelings for Sawyer, and sometimes the bartender even reconsiders his refusal to have a relationship. But when West's friends and coworkers at Four Bears Construction intervene to convince him to move on, the young man tries to date other people.

Review - Schooled by the Scientist by Drake LaMarque

My rating:

Note: This series is very much designed to be read in order. If you haven't read the first two books, then this review may contain spoilers. Cedric, along with his three lovers and the rest of the crew of the Devil's Whore, is still on the run from the cult that wants to use Cedric to bring a powerful and malevolent being into this world from another dimension. Only, it seems that the being is making itself known even without the cult's help, giving Cedric enormous powers.

Review - Reinventing Cato by Barbara Elsborg

My rating:

After a few disastrous relationships, Cato decides to avoid romantic entanglements, never spending more than a night with people he meets in bars, often not even knowing their name. But as midnight approaches on New Years Eve at a party he'd rather not be at, Cato resolves to become a better person, to “reinvent” himself. Vigge is not quite out at work, where he's a police detective. He doesn't trust easily and has some rather heavy baggage from his childhood.

Review - The Cutie-Pie Murders by Don Travis

My rating:

When BJ gets a strange call from his now-jailed nemesis from the first book, The Zozobra Incident, it involves him in a series of murders all involving young, very handsome men who have been sexually assaulted and dumped naked in public places. As usual, there are lots of suspects, and clues that lead nowhere, all while more young men are found dead. Will BJ and his boyfriend Paul be able to figure it all out, or will Paul become one of the killer's next victims?

Review - Paid to be Shared by Romilly King

My rating:

It has very recently come to light that the first book of this series was plagiarized. While no claims have been made about this book, I have decided to cease reading more of this series. Birch is one of Delphic Agency's most talented submissives, a young man who really loves his job, but even those who know him well aren't sure about the latest contract with two married Doms who have very different kinks.
