Will havoc continue to determine their lives or is their love strong enough to bring order?
 
 
 
 
 
 
Let's start off by saying that this is a new author for us and we really enjoyed our second read by them as we really loved how opposites attract and both Alex and Key were perfect for one another and some would say they found their perfect soul mate. 
 
I really enjoyed this story as it revolved around a couple who were highly attracted to one another but, completely different in more ways than one. I however, loved that none of this seem to matter to either of them especially Alec who was currently acting a a DA in there current town.I loved how Alex was willing to make some major life changing sacrifices to keep Alex in his life and his bed.
 
Alec and Key had amazing chemistry some would say explosive even both neither knowing how to come to terms with such attraction or how they were feeling but, something definitely worth exploring.And exploring they did as they were truly meant for one another no matter the differences between them things heated up in their relationship even more this time around.Hot ! Hot ! Hot! and Hotter!
 
Alec is a rich boy,and attorney at law and super sexy and attracted to bad boys.We found him to be,handsome,sexy,hot,compassionate,caring,had a sense of humor, smart and was understanding and patient and had a clever mind.Alec was so adorable and we just loved him and applauded him for all the sacrifices her made for the love of his life.
"He was to cute !"
 
I loved Alec from the onset in the story as Alec was one of those down to earth kind of guys.I loved that even though he was rich and his home and possessions showed that he never flaunted his wealth or acted superior because of that fact and never made Key feel inferior because of his upbringing or blue collar ways.I really loved Alec's sense of humor he made me laugh constantly throughout the story.
 
Key was one sexy hot man! I loved him from the onset of the story too! I loved that bad boy vibe he had going on those sexy muscles,that he was a little socially awkward but, overall just a great guy who needed the right person to bring him out of his shell.Being a gay and a biker and having a non excepting father of your sexuality didn't help his self esteem but, that is something Alec is changing for him by just being with him as Alec see's the good in him and always makes him feel at ease when they are together.Our heart bleed time and time again for Key and all his uncertainty and doubts about his self worth all the time he was amazing it was just a shame he never saw what others saw in him.God he was one hot delectable hottie that made a girls mouth water!
 
This story was hot hot hot! I thought that Alec and Key made a great couple and I love how they were when they were together and their chemistry was off the charts.I loved those super sexy love scenes in and out of bed as they were super hot and I loved how carefree they were with each other when they were together .
 
I loved the story it was sweet and made you laugh had some club drama and suspense and had amazing characters for us to fall in love with.This was one of those romance reads that made you feel good and we were rooting for this couple to fall in love and make it work even with all those outside complications they are going to have to address sooner or later.
 
Overall we loved this continuing tale of Alec and Key.Alec turned out to be my favorite character this time around  because we loved how he never stopped fighting for him and Key and their love & relationship and also their future.I loved all the little changes and gifts and gestures he made on Key's  behalf proving to him that he was in this for the long haul and working toward a future that include marriage and kids and a home etc he just needed to convince Key he deserved to be happy and no obstacle would stand in their way to achieve that.
 
I have to say Alec and Key have moved up on my list of my favorite same sex couples for 2019. I really really loved them together as a couple and will continue rooting for them to find their happily ever after because these two truly belong together.I was engaged and engrossed  in the story from the onset and remained that way to the very end.This one goes into the keeper pile to read time and time again.
 
We are really loving this authors stories and so looking forward too getting caught up on her already published reads as well as her new releases.
 
 
Recommended read to all who love M and M romance reads!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It's always a surprise to see what's coming next!
 
I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it's true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women's hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life - I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations - regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal... I don't want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I'm going to tell you about Kindle.
 
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I'll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died - weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn't have to be alone.
 
That time in my life was terrible. It's everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
 
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness - it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
 
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn't a time she wasn't there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It's its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn't be here today without her.

Lot by Bryan Washington
Lot: Stories - Bryan Washington

A novel of linked short stories, Bryan Washington's work embraces a Houston that is a riot of cultures crossing boundaries. They frankly address racial, sexual, and economic realities, and how they all collide and converge. Alternating glimpses into the life and loves of a boy growing up black, Latino, and gay binds the work together to create a rich, immersive saga. "Lot" is impossible to put down.

 

Short stories can be a hard sell nowadays, there are less markets for writers to develop the craft and many readers, myself included, often won't pick them up unless there's a compelling reason.

 

My compelling reason for you: these are phenomenal! There are connections in these stories so there is the continuity of the novel, but the diversity of voices in this book and the message it sends of Houston - a city in Texas for God's sake - as being a place of the future and a true reflection of America. This collection opened my eyes to a world I don't see living where I do and the stories gives me hope.

 

This was selection of Indies Introduce, a panel I was honored to be a part of, and it won the admiration of us booksellers because of its honesty and that hopefulness in the center of heartbreak that arrives in these stories. Please, support these stories and check them out at your local bookstore or library.

Book Review: How Not to Break by Susan Hawke
How Not to Break (Lovestrong #3)How Not to Break by Susan Hawke
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 2nd Lovestrong book I've read by Susan Hawke and I really enjoyed this one as much as the first I read.

I first met one of the MC's in the first Lovestrong book and I wondered about the mysterious bar owner, Nick St. Cloud, and why he was so sad. In this book I got to learn why, and wow, what a great story.

I should start by saying this is a May-November romance, (yes I said NOVEMBER). Nick St. Cloud is a 40 something (edging 50) out of the closet gay man who is living his life as he wants. A former Navy Seal, he now owns the local gay club and counts a large number of drag queens among his friends. Nick has never been involved with anyone, and many of his queens worry about him, as does his sister-in-law, Dana and his niece Becca. He's single and sad and nobody likes that. But Nick has a secret. Ten years ago he let his best friends eighteen-year-old son, Shaw, seduce him. On the night his best friends died.

Shaw's parents had taken him in when his own family had turned their backs on Nick for being gay, including his ahole brother, Dana's ahole ex-husband. Charlie and his wife had taken Nick in, gave him a family to call his own, and how did he reward their love and trust? by seducing their pride and joy, their son Shaw.

Trouble is, Shaw was the one who had done the seducing. And he didn't regret it. He'd wanted Nick forever, and he'd taken the chance. Yes it had ended in tragedy, and then he'd had to deal with Nick as the executor of his parents estate, but it didn't stop Shaw from wanting or dreaming of the gorgeous ex-SEAL. Nick had made it abundantly clear, however, that Shaw - and that night - had been a mistake. So Shaw had tried to move on. But he had a type. Older, more mature, and if he dreamed nightly about a certain hard-bodied SEAL? Maybe called out the man's name while with someone else? That didn't mean anything, right? Just because Nick St. Cloud had been Shaw's first didn't mean he was his last.

But then Shaw found himself being stalked and the police couldn't seem to stop it. His home was invaded, his _bedroom_ was invaded while he slept, gruesome warning were left and creepy gifts delivered. He wasn't safe in his own home, he wasn't safe anywhere...

Except with Nick. St. Nick riding to the rescue again. But this time Nick had his head out of his butt and his priorities on straight. This time he was letting go of the guilt and not making the same mistake he'd made a decade ago. This time Nick was going to protect and _keep_ Shaw Michaelson. This time Nick was going to tell Shaw he loved him.

Myra Breckinridge by Gore Vidal
Myra Breckinridge - Gore Vidal,Camille Paglia

Though 'Myra Breckinridge' offends on every level, though it is trashy, absurd, vile - also criminally prurient - I love this book. This novel, like Myra herself, cannot be easily categorized or made comfortable to readers.

 

The novel is made up of the pages of Myra's journal, kept at the request of her psychologist. The plot is simple: Myra Breckinridge comes to Hollywood to get her deceased husband Myron's share of his uncle Buck's "star" academy. From there she aims, simply, to conquer.

 

As Uncle Buck tries to discredit her claims, Myra begins undermining the academy from the inside as a teacher, and a whole lot of sexual shenanigans goes on. I'm a product of our jaded, modern society and this 1968 novel is jaw-dropping to me in 2019. There is unfortunately nothing old-fashioned about the sexist attitudes Myra confronts and subverts, often cruelly, and the over-the-top racism and sexism she brings to the table - while thick with satire - is deeply uncomfortable.

 

One thing is usually known about 'Myra Breckinridge':

She is in fact a transsexual. Myra was Myron.

(spoiler show)

 

That fact is important and makes a large part of the argument for why the book is so relevant today. However, Myra is no poster-child and if no man can possess her, neither can any group wanting to add her to their canon. This was a book that also took on the darker elements of Hollywood and what it took to be a star, and recent events keep proving that things have not changed too much in fifty years.

 

Altogether, the book is delightful. I don't know why I find it so, given most of the pieces make me want to wash my hands, but I loved reading it. After having been out of print in the United States since the late 90s it is past time we all got reacquainted with the weird in Vidal's fiction.
