Lionel and Dog are back in this follow-up to the Lambda finalist, Femme. Almost six months have passed and, after taking an online quiz, Lionel believes their relationship is doomed because they have nothing in common. To save their relationship, the pair joins a gay bowling league and discovers that Lionel is an excellent, if somewhat eccentric bowler.


Meanwhile, Dog gets profiled in a work newsletter. He’s excited that he’s out at work but doesn’t immediately see that by fawning over Dog’s masculine nature he was also putting down all femme guys. Lionel takes it personally which leads to a crisis in their relationship. Attempting to make it up to Lionel, Dog attempts to make a grand gesture which backfires spectacularly.


Will the two manage to put things right? And will a night in jail, a morning of drag bingo, an afternoon of day drinking, and a month of moping make things better or worse?

REVIEW

This was amazing. So much fun. I loved this characters so much. Each of them were so charismatic that it was impossible not falling in love with them and the book itself.

The plot was great. The book was fast paced and hilarious. It was a joy to read it, I was laughing so hard all the time that I had a few occasions when people was looking at me for laughing out loud In public but I don’t care. I loved seeing where things were going for Lionel and Dog and I loved how realistic were their struggles as a couple and as individuals.

What I liked the most about it were the characters. Lionel is a remarkable main character that I’m sure anyone will love. Sure he isn’t perfect, he makes a lot of mistakes but that’s what makes him a great character. The same with Dog, he is almost as great character as Lionel and as imperfect as he is as well. One of the reasons I like Lionel a little bit more than Dog is because he’s the one that came with the greatest quotes and the funniest parts of the story.

The secondary characters are also amazing. I have a little ambivalence towards Carlos. He is fun and I loved the moments he share with Lionel but there were a few things that bother me about him, not exactly about him as character or person  but him as a stereotype.  Dog’s family was also something that I loved, they are so much fun.

Overall it was a great book. It is less romantic than Femme and a lot less steamy but the humor that got my heart is still there and as good as I remember it. Absolutely recommend it to any reader who likes humorous books.

REview: In Front of Everyone: Four Tales of M/M Public Spanking by Ace Regent

In Front of Everyone: Four Tales of M/M Public Spanking

 

 

How humiliating would it be to get spanked in front of an audience? The men in these four tales of public punishment are about to find out!

From the store to the workplace to the doctor’s office, the tops in these stories don’t wait until they’re behind closed doors to deliver some swift, seat-of-the-pants instruction to deserving brats.

In “The Vandal,” a wayward graffiti artist faces smarting consequences from a disgruntled neighbor. In “The Doctor Will Spank You Now,” a librarian who fakes illness to get out of a work event finds himself at the mercy of his strict dom and an unorthodox doctor. “No Way to Treat a Lady” sees a young man disciplined by a fellow customer when he sexually harasses a woman in a drugstore. And “Coffee Boy” features a young advertising intern obsessed with his spanking fantasies—but unprepared for the reality of being punished by his boss.

REVIEW

 

This was so good. I had my doubts about it because of its title, I’m not really into public activities but I’m so glad I try it because it was great.

There were some stories that I loved and others that I didn’t liked that much, but overall the ones that I liked were so good that I ended up enjoying this so much more than I expected. I liked the one with a doctor and the one with the coffee boy one better. It was a little bit surprising to me to like the doctor’s one since is generally a profession that would keep me away from a book, since I really dislike reading anything medicine related, but that one was y favorite, which teach me to keep pushing my boundaries and try new things.

Overall it was great. I’m definitely will keep reading the next stories from this series that I’m enjoying so much.

Review: How Saeter Robbed the Underworld by Meredith Katz

 

 

 

The day before his coming-of-age ceremony, Eirik has a fight with his best friend—who had pointed out that, adopted by a pair of traveling warriors as Eirik was, how can he know who his ancestors are to celebrate them? Embarrassed and angry, he’s not in the mood for the story his fathers insist on telling him.

Despite himself, however, Eirik becomes engrossed in the tale of the son of the god of Love who has never felt pain, and the son of the god of Envy who always does, how they struggle with each other and their community, and how, ultimately, they trick the underworld out of a very special prize.

 

 

 

REVIEW

 

A bittersweet and unusual story, entertaining, charming, with a lot of emotions and beautiful characters.

After having a fight with his best friend, Eirik is not in the mood to listen to the story his father is telling. But getting to know about the son of the god of Love who has never felt pain, and the son of the god of Envy who always does, start being more related to his own story than he could expect.

It is really hard to tell what it is about without giving much away. I’m just saying there’s more to the story than the blurb gives away. It’s fast paced and easy to read, enjoyable and with a writing style that remind me of fairy tales. I loved the way it was written but most of all I loved the characters. Among them, the one that I liked the most was Saeter. He wasn’t good. He did bad things, but I think getting to know what was on his mind made him a more likable character. I do think there was a lot of love in him and even though the story wasn’t extremely romantic, it did have some lovely moments.

Recommended to readers who like fantasy books with low heat level and M/M pairing.

REVIEW

 

Estoy todavía dudando sobre lo que siento por este libro. Por un lado fue una historia fácil de leer, sin mucha angustia y entretenida, pero por otro siento que no hubo mucho desarrollo de la trama.

Los personajes son agradables, no me fueron particularmente atrayentes pero no creo que hubiera nada malo con ellos en realidad. Sin embargo, sentí que me fue muy difícil conectar emociones con ellos. No llegue a creer realmente en el amor que se tenía, probablemente porque todo pasó demasiado rápido.

En general fue un libro entretenido. Es difícil encontrar libros en el género homoerótico en español por lo que definitivamente pienso leer más libros de la escritora.

Review: The Rainbow Serpent by Lyra Shanti

 

 

In the time before humanity as we know it, there was a garden, a tree of knowledge, and a serpent who sought the truth. A re-imagining of the “fall” from the snake’s point of view, this unique novella is a spiritual fairy tale by Lyra Shanti, author of The Shiva XIV Series, and features the stunning cover art of Jennifer Juniper Varon.

 

 

REVIEW

 

This was an odd but interesting story. I’m glad I haven’t read the blurb before start reading it, being a gift, I just start reading without knowing what it was about. Otherwise I guess I wouldn’t choose it and have missed this strange re-tale of the Garden of Eden.

 

I liked it. I wasn’t too invest in the story at the start but then it came a moment when I just couldn’t stop reading. It was easy to read. The snake was an unusual character, as it was his love story that I was glad to get to know. The tasks he wanted to approach and his thoughts were also so nice to read. It was, overall,  an interesting book.

Review: The Silver Feather by Joanne Van Leerdam

 

 

A graveyard.
Atalisman.
A confrontation with evil personified.

When Phil loses the girl he loves, life as he knows it comes to a screeching halt.

 

 

REVIEW

 

This was so interesting. I had no idea where the story would go. I wasn’t expecting to read some horror story but I like being surprise so it was a good thing. I liked where the plot went, it was a little too fast paced to the point it felt rushed but it was an enjoyable read.

 

I liked the main character, although I think I wasn’t truly able to connect emotions with him and that was a little bothersome because I wanted to feel his grief and I just couldn’t. I wasn’t that satisfied with the ending either but the whole mystery around what was going on it was really intriguing and overall an entertaining story.
