Book Review - Jackson's Law, by Vanessa North
Jackson's Law - Vanessa North

Yet another free short story from the LHNB over at the Other Site. 

 

This one? Just beautiful, very sexy, and rang true.

The voice is a good male voice, and believable—quite unusual.

 

The boys are absolutely adorable (and would punch my jaw if they heard me talking about them as "adorable").

 

Loved the WTF, and the mandatory five seconds of angst. I loved that it was funny, and hot. 

 

Hell, author, you packed a whole novel into those 45 pages, didn't you? 

 

Well done. Oh, well done.

Book Review: BTW I Love You, by Nico Jaye
BTW I Love You - Nico Jaye

Oh, the sweetness that kills!

 

Beautiful, wholesome story, to counteract all the sad and bad. So sweet, indeed, it is almost bordering on too sweet. But I adored young Red and his Jake, and having done the internet meet thing myself, I admit, most of the situations I recognized.

 

Great little read. Totally great. Fluffy and good.

Book Review - The Practical Guide to Trying Not to Die, by Sam Schooler
The Practical Guide to Trying Not to Die - Sam Schooler

Ha, this was really good fun—yet another story from the M/M Romance group's Love Has No Boundaries over at Goodreads, free stories from writers and professional authors alike.

 

This one was like crack on meth chewing coca-leaves, and was shock-full of fun references to popular culture, and with Hitchhiker's Guide, Star Wars, LotR, Twilight, Supernatural, Star Trek, Darkfever, A Game of Thrones, and all the others that I probably missed, this was truly giggle-snort-worthy.

 

I cracked up several times, and I'm just sitting here shaking my head still. Awesome.

Book Review - Nor Iron Bars a Cage, by Kaje Harper
Nor Iron Bars a Cage - Kaje Harper

First of all, that was exactly what I needed: magic, sorcery, good and evil. And boys, beautiful boys.

 

Second, this story was born into the fantastic happening that is Love Has No Boundaries within the m/m romance group over on Goodreads 2013, and for an author to write an epic story like this one (100k words!) in some six weeks? Ridiculously gifted author.

 

Really!

 

I adored the storyline, the world, the characters, especially Tobin. I adore a steady presence. I read it nice and slow, and really tried to taste the words on my tongue, reading out loud. Poetry.

 

Then I fell in love also with a ghost. Not many books can do that for you. His interaction with Lyon was adorable. And Lyon? For a boy who thinks he is very weak, he shows incredible stamina and strength. Beautiful.

 

Of course, I especially appreciated that Lyon was language man. Perfection.

 

*happy sigh*

Book Review: Sucker-Punch, by Sarah Black
Sucker-Punch - Sarah Black

I am not surprised at all; Sarah Black has the writing gift, indeed.

Here, she stunned me with her sentences, put together Just So. And she created a marvelous short story about life, careers, and what comes next—especially when there are midlife career-changes looming. Brilliant.

 

See, sometimes you just need a little push. Some highlights:

 

"...twelve pudgy, elderly men and women with the hungry look of people who had recently been put on low salt diets."

This made me giggle so bad, the description was just so perfect. We all know one or two of those people, right?

 

"...a millimeter, such a tiny space. The size of a lesion on the brain, or the size of the space between lover’s lips, about to kiss."

Wow. That is sensual, at the same time as it is a perfect description of the lesion.

But my absolute favorite will always be:

"I’ll let you explain to George why he can’t sleep on the bed.”

 

Thank you, Ms Black, for this lovely freebie. You rock this.
