Library Lil
Library Lil - Suzanne Williams, Steven Kellogg (Illustrator)

Library Lil is a silly book about a librarian like no other. She breaks the librarian stereotype with her unique personality and even managed to get the rowdiest of people to take to reading.

Library Lil recieved a 570L on the Lexile readability scale which would make it suitable for students around the fourth grade level. This would be a good book to teach about breaking stereotypes as Lil strays from the traditional librarian role. Other characters in the story also break the stereotype norm as the book progresses.

Real Cowboys
Real Cowboys - Kate Hoefler,Jonathan Bean

Real Cowboys is a book about cowboys and how they are people just like us. It provides a sweet and moving insight to a side of cowboys that we do not often think about.

Earning a score of 8.4 on the Gunning-Fog scale, the book can be a bit difficult due to its long sentences. The vocabulary can be a bit tough for younger students, so this book would work best as a teacher led read-aloud for a class of older age students. 

This book would be great to use to teach about dispelling stereotypes. Having students compare what they know about cowboys from the media and the information they find in this book would be a great activity to teach students that people aren't always how they are portrayed to be.

Love You So Hard
Love You So Hard - Tara Lain

A new freebie by Tara Lain, and a good one.

I liked the way in which the stereotype of a top in life and bed are analyzed here. It was fun to watch, it was hot to witness, and it was sweet to see it come to completion. I liked both MCs, and I felt with them and for them.

But it was a tad predictable. The big misunderstanding was no surprise, came and went way to easily and spoiled the ending a little bit for me. Still a good story, but it didn't exactly make me swoon either.

Top Me Maybe?
Top Me Maybe? (BFP: The Secrets Collection) - Jay Northcote

Short and hot.


Ladies and gentleman, let me present you with the stereotypical alpha-male & kind-of-virgin. who is (attention!) now learning about the joy of anal penetration. This is 33 pages full of steam and hotness. But don't be fooled, it's not porn. There is a butt-load of sweetness there - pun intended. Also, I was touched by the tenderness and the care shining through every page. Real feelings here, people!

Read it and be prepared for the smutty, sweet adventures of a tough cop and his toppy boyfriend.

Clique
Clique (Heartsville) - Jayden Brooks

This is part of the Heartsville Series, but can easily be read as a standalone.

The whole series is absolutely right for you if you're looking for something light, sweet and sexy, that is well written and highly entertaining.

Meet Adam, super-bubbly, super active, and still looking like he's barely able to vote, let alone drink. And he runs into Brandon. The serious dog walker, with a somewhat troubled past, who thinks he's stalked by a kid throughout the gayborhood. Which Adam doesn't, not really, but getting this misunderstanding cleared up and the deveolping tentative relationship after that, was really fun to read about. The over-the-top jealousy at one point really wasn't for me, it felt a little bit like being back in the 50s. Other than that, it was funny, a little sexy, and really sweet, and I absolutely adored Adam. 3.5 stars all around.
