Snowball in Hell, by Josh Lanyon

Cover Snobwall in Hell

(Please see footnote – September 21, 2015)

A long time ago, when I was just starting to review, Lisabea (before she was L B Gregg) had a little giveaway at her blog. As luck would have it, I was the winner. This was the result.

I have since read more than a few m/m romances, though a quick look shows I’ve only reviewed a handful of them. I must remedy this, because there are some really good authors writing it.

Snowball in Hell, by Josh Lanyon

This book was originally released by the now-defunct Aspen Mountain Press in 2007 and re-released by Carina Press (my copy has a 2011 copyright notice). I do not know whether this is a revised version or not, but I know I really, really like it, and I want to talk with some detail about all the things I like about it. Therefore…

Reader beware: there be spoilers within!

Here’s the blurb:

RWA 2010: the beginning…

28 Jul

RWA-2010-alternate-logo

Sounds ominous, doesn’t it?

Well it wasn’t—quite :grin: but it started with just a tad of stress.

For reasons that have nothing to do with anything, I haven’t driven a car for a number of years (nine? ten? something like that) but in order to attend RWA—which is happening just over 35 miles southwest of my house—I have to drive down there. And back. Every day this week.

Freaking out time chez Aztec (and don’t give me the “like riding a bicycle” thing—I’ve been riding the bike for over five years now, and I’m still not comfortable with it).

“Happy Ending” by L. B. Gregg

“Happy Ending”, by L. B. Gregg

 

This charming love story is Ms Gregg’s second published work. Another m/m tale, “Happy Ending” is set in her Men of Springfield universe, with both stories loosely connected in setting and by the appearance as a secondary character of one of the protagonists of the first book, “Gobsmacked” (review here).

Before going further, I must add the following warning: minors and people who object to strong language and sexual content should avoid “Happy Ending”. Oh, and this story is considered erotica because of some graphic sexual scenes.

Here is the blurb from the publisher’s page: Continue reading

“Gobsmacked” by L. B. Gregg

“Gobsmacked”, by L.B. Gregg

Disregarding the title (because it takes a bit to warm to it, I confess) “Gobsmacked”, L.B. Gregg’s debut story, is 125 pages of awesome. Can I get away with saying that and nothing more?

No?

Rats.

Okay, then, let me write something a bit more review-like. First, the usual warnings: this is an adult story, so minors should steer clear of it and my review. Further, it is an m/m (or homosexual) erotic romance, which means that adults who have issues with homosexuality in general and/or graphic language should probably avoid this as well.

Here is the blurb from the publisher’s site: Continue reading

The Society Catch, by Louise Allen

The Society Catch, by Louise Allen

I found this novel at my local library’s used book store last month, after reading another book by Ms Allen, and being the curious cat that I am, I bought it. With one thing and another (I still blame Lisabea, by the way), the poor thing ended lost in the TBR mountain until yesterday. But it was, I think, a good thing, because I ended up liking it quite a bit.

Here’s the (misleading, as always) back cover blurb: Continue reading

The Broken H, by J. L. Langley

3 Mar

If in case anyone reading here wonders how all this started—the flood of reviews, the cockpuppets, etc.—winning a book over at Nose in a Book was the event that opened the gates. It’s only fair, then, that I share the wealth. Blame Lisabea. I do :) And here’s the book:

The Broken H, by J.L. Langley

Reader beware: This is an erotic m/m romance—so anyone who has some sort of objection to same sex relationships should probably stop reading right about now. And people who object to graphic or explicit writing would not like this book so…goodbye?

Okay, now that’s done… Here’s the back blurb: Continue reading
