Review: "The Cattery" by K.A. Merikan
The Cattery - K.A. Merikan

"I'm gonna pet you so good on the inside."

 

Too tame for a kinky erotica and too shallow for a full-on romance (I never felt any true connection between Goran and Ollie outside of the bedroom).

 

Plus reading about grown men meowing during sex has not once felt NOT weird.

 

At least I can cross off "cat play orgy" from my "Things I want to read before I die" list, so there's that.

Review: "Stygian" by Santino Hassell
Stygian - Santino Hassell

"Feeling safe is nothing more than a state of mind."

Translation: if you keep staying in a hunted house for WEEKS while experiencing more than a dozen terrifying things, then your state of mind = YOU ALL ARE DIMWITS!

 

 

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Santino Hassell is a great writer, but he should stay away from the m/m romance genre.

 

How this book could even remotely be considered a romance novel is beyond me. 2 or 3 sex scenes don't make a romance if the MCs treat each other like shit 99% of the time. And so does not a weak and tentative HFN (Hassell's trademark it seems).

 

 

That being said, I also don't think that horror is this author's genre either. Because scary this was not. Predictable and drawn-out, yes. But frightening? Nuh-uh.

 

 

Unless you've never read a single paranormal book in your life, THEN this old-fashioned gothic horror story might actually scare you. Or if you're a fan of H.P. Lovecraft.

 

But to a modern horror fiction lover like me, the paranormal aspect of this book just felt outdated and antiquated.

 

So once again, Santino Hassell's great writing skills save another book from being a complete bust. So 3 stars it is, despite my complete lack of enjoyment.

Review: "Willow Man" by John Inman
Willow Man - John Inman

“We’ve always loved each other. We just weren’t old enough to know it.”

 

This was a perfect mixture of the Stephen King novels "It" and "Stand by Me" as well as the "A Nightmare on Elm Street" movie.

 

 

No one combines horror, humor and M/M like John Inman. And yet, besides all the terror and emotional turmoil, there's always such an emotionally exhausting sadness in his stories. This is primarily a horror story, but it's also a story about loss, grief, finding closure and moving on.

 

 

If you're a horror fan, I highly recommend this book.

 

If you're reading it for the romance aspect, be prepared for some serious heartsore.

 

 

Thanks to Momo and Julie for the BR!

Review: "Will & Patrick Meet the Mob" (Wake Up Married, #5) by Leta Blake & Alice Griffiths
Will & Patrick Meet the Mob (Wake Up Married Book 5) - Alice Griffiths,Leta Blake

I'm not sure if I have made myself clear enough, so let me say it again:

 

I just love this series and I love Will and Patrick! LOVE THEM!

 

 

In all honesty I would read a hundred more books that was just them coming to terms with their feelings and love for each other. They're just so perfect and the sex is HAWT.

 

I will be so sad when this fun and emotional journey with Will and Patrick is over...

Review: "Will & Patrick Fight Their Feelings" (Wake Up Married, #4) by Leta Blake & Alice Griffiths
Will & Patrick Fight Their Feelings (Wake Up Married Book 4) - Alice Griffiths,Leta Blake

I am still head over heels in love with Patrick, my sexy HottieMcBrainSurgeon.

 

I mean, how can you NOT love someone who finds out that he's fallen in love with his fake husband, but is afraid that Will doesn't return his feelings, so the only way he can express his love is by confessing it to his best friend, who is just waking up from surgery and unable to understand anything that he's saying?

 

“You’re a Libra. What do Libras think about love?” he asks. Then he puts his thumb to her bottom lip and moves it up and down, pitching his voice up high. “What’s the problem, Dr. Jerkface? Love is beautiful. You should be happy. Have my jam doughnut.”

“Only idiots think love is beautiful,” Patrick says in his own voice.

“I’m not an idiot. I’m an optimist.” Her lip is soft but dry under his thumb and she frowns in her sleep.

 

 

This was also the hottest episode so far. And by hot I mean kinky. I am not so sure how I feel about the addition of the BDSM elements though, like breath play or spanking. I mean, they were nicely written and explained and the sex was hot, but somehow it felt out of place in this story and Will & Patrick's relationship. But if the authors thought that it needed to be included, then that's ok. Even if it didn't totally work for me.
