M/M Robin Hood is probably all I need to say to make peeps happy. This book is fucking awesome. It’s well established I <3 Kay Berrisford and every book just makes me love her more (she is also just plain fun to chat with). My fav part of this book is that this takes place after Robin Hood's heyday, when he's alone and trying (failing) to move on and such. His love interest is a woobie, and they're ridiculously cute when they're not being hilariously stupid :3 An excellent addition to the Greenwood books ^__^ Read them all if you have not, but if you only want this one you should be fine (though Herne is more awesome if you've read that story already).

Speaking of writers I love to death :3 Katey never disappoints either, and she’s got some of the coolest superpower books on the block. Add that in with angst, deceit, and further shenanigans and I adoooore this book. This one was cool because it’s law enforcement versus vigilantes, and two men with a complicated history. Interesting to see so well laid out where both are wrong, both are right. Cool to see two guys that are far from perfect, do horrible things to each other, but still manage to be together. If you haven’t read this series, definitely do.

And now I am off to write about vampires ;3 Everybody have a good weekend!

Friday Recs

I was honestly starting to think I’d never get to do this again, between being busy and reading so many books that just weren’t worth recc’ing. Thankfully, I was wrong :3 Onward!


 
The Green-Eyed Monster by Melanie Tushmore, an excellent band story that follows a band’s rise to fame and the romantic woes of two remarkably stupid but endearing boys as they make things 500 times more difficult than it needed to be :3 I love that shit, and Melanie clearly knows her way around the industry, all the band, touring, etc details seemed dead on to me. If you like bandslash, you cannot go wrong by this book 😉
 
 

 
Duty to the Crown by Rebecca Cohen, who has joined the ranks of authors I trust to write a sequel without fucking everything up. A very solid follow up to the first one. Love the chars, especially how very ‘are you serious, you idiot?’ Anthony can be. Sebastian has the patience of a saint, but thankfully Anthony seems aware of this :3 I look forward to seeing what trouble they’ll get into next, especially re: Sebastian’s cross-dressing ways, since they’re all aware that can’t continue on forever.
 
 

 
Pas de Deux by Jamie Craig is a fun murder mystery type thing, with lawyers vs. detective. I do love me some cop stories, and this one I fucking love how good at their jobs each of the chars is, and how both are willing to, you know, be adults and shit. They were also hot together, always a bonus 😉 An excellent story that satisfied my constant craving for such stories.
 
 

 
One of the serials currently running at Storm Moon Press. The first two parts are out so far, and they’ve been a lot of fun. I like the world, and the two MCs, and am very curious and excited to see how everything is going to play out. If you like serials and paranormal stuff, you’d probably enjoy this 🙂

Now I return to the kitchen. I am making my cheddar bread for Sasha, and also working on tea eggs. Tomorrow, we’re headed up to my parents to bum around and have a cookout. We’re bringing burgers, potato salad, and two bowls of cranberry slush. Also a cheesecake, cause Sasha has my parents addicted to her cheesecake (it’s not hard, she makes them like a boss).

Monday, the fun begins for LT3, with our Way to Your Heart bloghop!

Ya’ll have a good weekend ^___^

Man, it’s been awhile since I’ve been able to do these. I really do need to find a way to keep them up more regularly. Should at least have more books though, I signed up for the first quarter gang bang challenge on MM Romance Group on Goodreads and so far am having a lot of fun. Peeps are finally getting me to read some awesome books I’ve had sitting on my TBR forever.

Onward!

I had a lot of fun with the first book in this series, but I was SO ALL OVER the second one 😀 I’m a freaking’ h0r for books like this, be it criminals from rival gangs, cop/robber, whatever. It’s an obsession. There is never enough law/criminal fiction for me. If it’s an undercover cop (or fed or whatever) then all the fucking better. This particular series has all of my love, she even carries off the insta-love vibe. Her characters totally hook you, and I am beyond stoked that the next book in the series has the MC I have been DYING to read more about.

The first book I read for my gang bang challenge. I really really liked it, from the time period to the way the premise played out, how massively fucking stupid the one char could be and how the MC handled it. If you like fun historicals, this one is a solid read.

These are three Christmas stories I read that were really sweet. I meant to rec them way before Christmas rolled around, but as ever I never have all the time I hope. So it goes :3

In non-rec news, just so I don’t plague everyone with a second post, various and sundry things:

Storm Moon Press has accepted my short story for their Dracones anthology. It should be out in April, barring circumstances unforeseen. Much love to them for the acceptance; they’re an awesome press and good people. It’s a hell of a lot of fun to work with them in this way 😀

I am running a giveaway for three months subscription in honor of Dance Only for Me beginning next week. Runs until Monday, so if you want a chance, drop a comment here.

In other writing news, due to LT3 dropping a story out of concern for one of our much-loved authors, I’ve started up another serial WAY ahead of schedule and am trying to finish it up. This has put other writing projects massively behind schedule, but I am still hoping that come February I can finally pick up some non-serial writing. Ideally, I’d finally like to tackle Dragon Magic finally, but I may work on some shorter stuff first. We’ll see.

Love You Like a Romance Novel comes out next week. Will probably have a whole long post for that one, since once I get caught up on unexpected projects I do want to tackle Paradise once and for all. As ever, never enough time in the day.

Now to get some writing done, then I am making cookies.

Hope everyone has a good weekend, and that 2013 is off to an awesome start for you. Thanks for being wonderful, peeps!

Friday Recs

After a day of mostly cooking, with some cleaning and writing mixed in, I spent all of last night reading. Sadly, of the nine books I’ve read this week, I only have two to rec -_-

On the bright side, they’re two of my absolute favorite authors.

This story is a very sweet, hot, fun time travel style romance. My favorite part of Kay Berrisford’s writing is that she is stellar with the history. The MC and his love interest are both wonderful, and all elements/ramifications of time travel were very well done. I couldn’t sleep at all the night I read this, my insomnia hated me so hard, and this book probably kept me from going insane. It’s definitely the kind of book that leaves you smiling for a while after.

I think when Riptide was pimping this book, they usually described it as ‘haunting’ and that’s a perfect way to describe it. Another excellent historical, and from a time period I generally avoid like the plague. I really liked this one was about German soldiers, that they were not just there to be the bad guys, and that it did not end on a hopelessly depressing note. It took me way too long to get around to this one, but it was so worth the wait.

Am hoping that if I can get enough work and Christmas shopping done this weekend I can read. I have a LOT of books, so I am hoping to get through them. I hope everyone has a good weekend ^__^

Friday Recs

We are returned! 😀 I’ve only got two this time, but I’m aiming for more next week ^__^

These are both older books. The funny thing about Outcast Mine is that I marked it four stars and yet do not remember it at all. I may have even recced it before? I don’t know, I half wonder if I marked it thinking it was something else. But whatever I was thinking, it is an excellent book. So here we go :3

Outcast Mine is a prison planet story. The first thing that came to mind when I read that was Riddick, but the prison guards here are so much cooler than that :3 I totally love the warden in charge of it all, as well as the MC who was thrown into the prison for thieving. It’s got a mating thing going, but not of the insta-love variety, rather the by necessity, which I love. It all plays out really fucking well. Books like this make me glad I’m paying more and more attention to sci-fi.

This book came out in 2008 so I’m probably like the last person to read it. It’s been on my radar forever, and I’m glad I finally got around to it. The only thing that tripped me up was the names. I could not keep them all straight (and I probably can’t pronounce them for shit) to save my life. But, I was reading in airports and on planes, so I’m sure others will manage much better. I fucking love the wolf society and how it functions, how the world at large functions. I really want to crack into book two, but want to read some other stuff first. The only thing I’d warn for here is what some might perceive as dubious consent. I’d advise reading the reviews on GR for the spoilers on that point if you think it at all might bother you. But it fits, and I don’t consider it dubious myself, whatever that is worth.

And now I must get back to work, being away for two weeks and then losing my computer has so fucked me over on getting shit done. My new comp won’t be here until the 14th, awesome fun times >_< Have a good weekend, lovelies! <3 <3 <3

Friday Recs (and other things)

Finally am managing to do these again, hooray! Sadly, I do not have many because a) I’ve been busy and b)I’ve been on a fanfic kick.

Onward!

It’s sad how often I buy fantasy books and either don’t finish them, or wish I had a paperback to launch by the end -_- I am generally a pretty chill reader; I’ll ready anything. But fantasy I tend to be unfairly picky and demanding. I guess everyone has a genre or whatnot like that. Scorpion holds up to my unreasonable standards: the characters kick a lot of ass, the world building is first rate, and the story is very much can’t stop turning pages. I absolutely loved this book.

I don’t think this duo has written a book yet that I’ve hated. Every time I see they’ve got a new one I go full fangirl mode. This is definitely another good one. I always love antagonistic dynamics done well, and they’ve got it down. Watching the mild, restrained accountant come into his own was a lot of fun, and they’re seriously the cutest couple ever.

Everyone now and then I buy a book that is exactly what I don’t like just because I like to see if a book can surprise me. This book is exactly why I do it. I was not expecting much from this book. But it turned out pretty awesome, and the focus was always on the character and the story (not page after page of sex as I honestly figured). I love the world, the different races, especially the Sonta. Loved both of the MCs, and how everything played out. And there should be more stories about the Sonta.

Tentacle fic! Done well! Do I need to say anything else? It’s not page after page of rapey tentacles, which is such a nice change. My favorite story was Wildwood, but all of the stories are solid. I tend to be a big fan of anthologies because it gives me several short stories (since i just don’t have time for long stories very often), but they are very hit and miss. This one is very much worth the money.

That is all for recs ^__^

—–

And so I do not clutter up feeds and all with multiple posts:

Wrote a ridiculously cute and fluffy fairytale earlier in the week, it’s posted here.

Bound is getting turned into an online graphic novel! I’m going to be posting formally about that more later, but I posted some pics from it here.

Have been struggling forever for a Kiss Me at Midnight story, and thanks to Julia Alaric I have one! I’m going to write about Jesse and Rostiya from Dance in the Dark ^__^ There is a snippet here.

And now I must get on with my day. I have submissions to read, ads to make, stories to write … and laundry to do. Boo hiss laundry, boo hiss.

Right then. Time for more coffee. Everyone have a good weekend! ^__^

INCURSION by Aleksandr Voinov

Kind of book that makes me glad I read sci-fi now, and definitely the kind of book that could pull someone in to liking sci-fi. My heart goes out to Kyle, not because of his legs, but because of the BS he had to put up with because of that. He’s a great character. Am totally in love with Grimm, exactly what Kyle needs and totally kick ass 😀 And the morphs, god the morphs. They fucking rock.

CATCHING KIT by Kay Berrisford

A story about a human who bring an elf to life, and an elf that brings a human to life :3 Most fun I’ve had with modern paranormal type stuff in forever. And god, poor Denny. There are moments where your heart just breaks for him. And Kit, too, but mostly I just wanted to hug poor Denny. Loved this story, it was a lot of fun to read, but Kay has yet to disappoint :3

THE DANGERS OF FAIRY COMPACTS by Katey Hawthorne

My favorite writers are always the ones with a true sense of humor, and Katey does not disappoint. This story is adorable and funny and clever. Poor little fairy, compacts are going to be the death of him. I think the being forced to sit in the tree forever was a favorite part. His progression from I’m Chill to Hulk Smash! was hilarious. I really can’t wait for the next one ^_^ This has the bonus of being a free read, so check it out 😀

THE HEALING & THE DYING by L.A. Witt

I’ve been waiting for this book forever. It’s the sequel to THE GIVEN & THE TAKEN and continues the desperate attempts to escape an angry wolf pack by three men. It’s rare to find books that put so much effort into building a threesome, and the entire book (series) leave you tense and on edge and needing to know what happens next and if they’ll make it. Now I must wait for the third one.

SOVEREIGN’S GLADIATOR by Jez Morrow

I bought this book thinking it would be crack. Gladiator stuff is always a toss up, since mostly it just winds up sex slave type crap. But this one was really good. I really really like the MC and that’s he a good fucking leader without being pretentious and all of that. So often with stories of kings you get them while they’re still learning the ropes and fucking up every fifteen pages. It was fun to read about a guy who knows his shit, and see him actually get the one things he’s always wanted but could never have.

I FEEL YOU by Alex Berry

This is a cute, solid story about a quiet, overweight guy who (to his surprise) gets hit on by one of the hotties he’s always admired around town. I like stories like this because it proves you do not need buckets of drama or somebody getting shot/beaten/etc to make a good contemp story. And I just really liked both chars; they were seriously ordinary guys.

Friday Recs

Karl Blake’s good at a lot of things: killing bad guys, rescuing hostages…and looting priceless diamonds, but when a bullet ends his career as a mercenary he discovers that he’s really bad at living in a huge house with nothing to do. A shy, oddly sexy gardener with an unexpected liking for rough sex seems just what the doctor ordered for his boredom. But Adam’s got secrets that make Karl’s seem mundane, and if the two of them are going to find a future together, there’s a lot more to deal with than dandelions in the lawn.

With the past and the present combining to push them apart, betrayal, hurt, and mistrust around every corner, the two of them need to focus less on labels and more on what they are to each other.

Because a rose by any other name…

I totally love these two authors. I don’t think there’s a combo move of theirs I have not absolutely loved yet. This is an older book I’ve meant to read for years. It was recced to me by someone else, then fell by the wayside. Loved it to death. If you absolutely cannot tolerate cheating of any sort, this book might bug you, but honestly it all made sense and it plays out well. I love the MCs, love the premise and how it’s executed. Can’t wait to see what these two write next 😀

Alex Tanner is a male nurse who divides his time between his job and his television schedule. His idea of the perfect partner, like so many other people’s, is a tall, dark, and handsome man. Preferably alive and breathing. Surely that’s not asking too much? Then an uninvited guest—a ghost, of all things—forces Alex to question what he’s always looked for in a lover and his definition of what makes a person so beautiful.

This book was much with the ;;___;; moments. Love the MC and the poor ghost. Their personalities, the utter ADORABLENESS that is the ghost, the friends, everything. OMG THE KITTY. Seriously, this book was so much with the woobie and the awwww and the nooooo. Loved it to death, hands down my favorite ‘ghost’ book. So well done, so much fun to read, and it all came together beautifully. <3 <3 <3

Escaping life on a farm, sexy Wyatt Taylor runs to the nearest city after college where he finds and loses
both love and employment. Down but not out, the handsome young man rebounds by landing the coveted position as assistant to powerful Portland, Oregon, business tycoon, William Bowen. Cold and precise, the mogul has a rarified life of privilege that leaves no room for error.

Thrust into a world of jet set travel and caviar, Wyatt is given little direction about his new career and is
fitted with a designer wardrobe. Clothes may not make the man, but Wyatt loves the beautifully tailored suits, wearing them like modern armor without realizing a connection between the way he looks in his new work “uniform” and Bowen’s clients.

This book was fucking hysterical and horribly wrong. I really can’t believe the MC didn’t clue in faster to what was going on, but the author writes the voice so well I actually do believe he didn’t catch on. It’s first person, and the voice is one I feel a lot of people try for but it only comes off forced, and this author definitely nailed it. I don’t think this is a premise many could have made work, and it may not be for everyone, but I enjoyed it.

Owen may be a bit of a country mouse, but he’s loving his vacation in London. After a long day playing tourist, he’s on the hunt for some cheap beer and a good burger. Instead he finds a man hunting him, an arrogant prick with only one thing on the brain: the kind of meat that doesn’t come on a bun.

Eighty-hour weeks at a trading desk don’t leave Malcolm Kavanagh much time for meaningful relationships. Besides, in his world, everything’s a competition—even sex. When his newest one-night-sub fails to show, Malcolm sets his sights on the pretty young Yank on the bar stool beside him.

Owen’s all for an adventure with a native, but he’s not the pushover Malcolm thinks he is, and Malcolm’s not as shallow as he tries to be. They both soon learn that nothing’s too intimate to share with a stranger, and the strangest things happen when two people share the most important pieces of their hearts.

A book of fluff from two authors basically known for never (rarely) doing fluff. If you want a short, happy read this is definitely a book to hit up. Malcolm is so much with the love, seriously. Owen was awesome. They way they fit together was <3 <3 <3 The setting is lovely, and a premise that many would have rushed and made unconvincing these two carry off perfectly. There's no way this book can fail to put you in a better mood.

This book was fun. I love comedic murder mystery type things, but this one didn’t range into absurd territory. It’s a good mix of funny, sweet, and ‘that mother fucker is seriously creepy’. Love the MC, was pleased with who his love interest wound up being. My only minor quibble is I would have liked more of that, since it seemed to work out with little trouble, but honestly it is very minor. As a whole the book was fun, and I need to remember to see if more of the series is out.

Adam Hoale owns a construction company called Hoale Construction. When he finds an eye-opening surprise in the walls of a house he’s flipping, and a libido flaring surprise standing on the lawn, he’s willing to do the right thing with the surprise in the wall while entertaining lusty thoughts about the surprise on the lawn.

But as the world finds out what he discovered, and his new boy toy seems to be keeping too many secrets to make a relationship a reality, Adam soon realizes he may just get flipped himself if he’s not careful.

Detective Gabriel Ashby has never looked twice at another man, yet the criminal across from him, the man he’s interrogating, isn’t like any other. Gabe can’t deal with the sudden, intense need he has for one of NYPD’s Most Wanted. Everyone close to Angelo Pagan ends up dead, with the smug gang leader standing amid the rubble. Gabe would love nothing more than to bust Angelo’s ass and lock him up. So why is he seeing the bastard in his dreams at night?

Angelo Pagan knows attraction to Gabe is suicide. He’s resolute to ignore the chemistry…until a police raid goes wrong. He critically injures Gabe, changing the trajectory of both their lives. Now the two can’t get close enough. They settle into a forbidden affair threatened by lies and betrayal, living on different sides of the law with no way of breaching the gap between them. With the authorities looking to make an example of Angelo, Gabe has to decide if it’s really worth it to hate the sin but love the sinner.

As we’ve long established, I’m a goddamn sucker for cop/mob stories. They can, alas, be pretty hit or miss, but this one was definitely a hit. I loved loved the mobster guy (and his mom), and while I think the cop got awfully angry a lot none of it was really without good reason. They’re adorable in a way a badass mobster and cop really shouldn’t be allowed to get away with :3 Pacing is another important thing in a book like this, and the author nailed that. I am very happy this book stumbled into my path 😀

And that is all I have for now. Hope everyone has a good weekend ^__^

Friday Recs & Giveaways

No absolute favorite stand out this week. Haven’t been able to read much, am simply too busy writing. But, I did buy the entire set of DSP’s Time is Eternity Daily Doses so I get a short story a day. They’ve been a pretty mixed bag so far, but two of them stood out and are listed here.

Troy and Aaron Mayer, identical twins separated from the age of two, have lived wildly different lives. Aaron has struggled taking care of their alcoholic, gambling-addicted mother, leaving his finances in disarray. Troy, living with their father, experienced luxury. He calls Aaron asking to see him after years of silence. When Aaron arrives at his brother’s boat, his twin has committed suicide. In his farewell note, Troy offers Aaron his car keys, his money and… his life of riches.

Aaron, on the run from the loan sharks he owes money to, finds his new life is even worse. Everywhere he turns he discovers somebody Troy devastated… including his handsome, charismatic husband, Dave Alvarez, who is on the verge of leaving Troy. Can Aaron turn things around for Troy… and for himself? Or are some mirrors just meant to be broken?

Loved this story. The authors did a wonderful job with the premise, even if I thought it got a touch out of control toward the end. I absolutely adore Aaron and Dave. The kind of book that makes you wonder what you would do in Aaron’s place. Definitely worth a read if you’re looking for something a little different.

Kyle Forester likes rules and schedules, and he loves his janitorial job at Happy World. The gigantic theme park has strict regulations that Kyle knows are in place for a reason. After all, life just runs more smoothly when there are rules in effect, and Kyle is going to make sure his new trainee is fully aware of that. They’ll both get along fine, Kyle is sure. Anyone working at Happy World must be a good employee.

Rory Stafford doesn’t like policies or regulations. Unfortunately, getting a job at the world’s most popular theme park comes with a handbook full of both those things. Rory is pretty sure his new job at Happy World isn’t going to work out, especially after he meets his trainer, Kyle Forester. Kyle is definitely a rule-follower and makes no secret of his contempt for Rory’s rule-breaking. However, after just a few shifts together, Kyle and Rory discover that they can’t keep their hands off each other. The two of them find themselves on a wild roller coaster ride of heat, emotion, and not-so-hidden lust as Kyle and Rory try to find common ground in the giant hamster ball known as Happy World.

On the other hand, if you’re looking for something utterly cute and harmless, this is the way to go. I had a lot of fun with this one. Mr. Rules meets Mr. Fuck the Rules and they’re utterly adorkable. I could have done with the sexual harassment issues that people seem to love to use as a plot device for these sorts of things, but all in all it came together and was a sweet, easy read and I adored it.

Time is Eternity is DSPs Daily Dose this year. Normally I just buy whatever few stories sound interesting, but I figured what the hell, I’d give the whole set a try. I bought the set back in April when it was cheap, figuring it would give me something to look forward to in June.

So far, most of them have been good. My absolute favorite was One Constant. It’s absolutely beautiful, and one of the best books so far just in handling time travel. Loved how it played out, loved how it came together. So, so pretty. Close on it’s heals is 1989 because it was cute, sweet, and hilarious in the way they just would not leave the bar :3 And third favorite was Violet’s Present, because the author did an awesome job with the chars and conveying a lot with a little. I also liked where she ended it. Am rapidly becoming a fan of Kim Fielding, may finally pick up another book of her’s I’ve been dithering over. We shall see :3

And so I do not spam people with posts today.

Joyfully Jay and many other wonderful people are participating in Shameless Summer Blog Hop. Joyfully Jay is offering up a winner’s choice of one of my books, among other shiny prizes 😀

I am also giving away Burning Bright and it’s beautiful matching pendant here.

In parting, have a picture of Seamus, who thinks he is hiding:

Everybody have a good weekend! <3

Friday Recs

Totally did not get around to this last Friday ^^;;

This book is a bit on the odd side, and I definitely don’t think everyone would like it. Wild west + magic + Azetc gods = one hell of an interesting book. But it’s not a quick read, convoluted, violent, and the back and forth in the timeline thing can drive some people up the wall.

That being said, the characters all kick ass. Chess. OMG Chess. That is one crazy ass bastard. Gay, flamboyant, proud of it (in the wild goddamn west) and will kill anything that so much as blocks his view of a door. Crazy motherfucker and he’s AWESOME. The narrator, Ed, is odd for a narrator. Very quiet, very background, almost, for the main voice of the book. But that suits him, suits the book. Even Rook is cool in his own you fucking asshole way. And not a one of them is easily slotted as good or bad guy. GOD I want the second and third books, but I must wait until bills and shit are paid. SULK SULK SULK.

If you don’t like horror, or books that tend toward convoluted, avoid this. But it’s the best book rec I’ve been given in forever and I loved the fuck out of it.

As I have oft said, I am Sasha’s biggest fan. If I did not live with her, I would stalk her quite ruthlessly. Mutual stalking may actually have been how we met, hmm. Anyway, What Matters Most is her newest release at LT3 and I loved it from the first draft ^___^ I always liked this one because it’s about a man who has done his best to stand up for a cause (oddly apropos, given the Hop), and now is dealing with the fallout of taking that stand.

I’ll be honest and say that I first rejected Heart’s Home because I hate the cover. It completely undermines the book, IMHO, and it’s a really good book. My only real quibble was that the werewolf got a little repetitive in his emoing/whining. But it’s a minor thing, and subject to personal pref. I loved the setting, I loved it happened AFTER Jack the Ripper and the way that affected things. Loved the characters. But if I hadn’t happened to read a post where the author was guest blogging and really liked it, I probably never would have bought it b/c of that bodice ripper cover. It is worth reading, though, so don’t be petty like me.

Love this author duo. I recently reread Room at the Top, and have been looking forward to Rock and a Hard Place. Definitely worth the wait ^__^ It’s not really enemies to lovers, per se, but it is ‘coworkers who loathe each other for no good reason and finally figure that out’ which is close enough. Absolutely loved when they were trapped on the island. So well done, I loved they were not somehow survival experts and could make fun of themselves for that, and still scrape by and all. My fav part of the book, though the rest of it is just as solid.

Wasn’t sure about this book a couple of times, but it’s hard not to fall in love with the chars eventually. They both kind of make you want to reach into the pages and choke them a couple of times, but then you’d feel bad and be compelled to make them cookies or something. I loved the premise, I like neither character is all sparkles and light, but once they stop fucking up and misunderstanding they’re really cute–and watching them fuck up is hilarious at some point, and headdesk at others. Loved how it all played out.
 
 
 
 
 

I almost did not read these books because the Silver Publishing website has became a source of frustration for me -_- It took me two hours to buy these four books. The sad part is that I was going to buy the whole set. But I could never find WHERE to buy the whole set. I felt dumb for not being able to figure it out. And every single page takes forever to load. By the time I got these four, I was ready to throw my computer across the room (and this is why the links go to ARe).

These four were all wonderful reads. My favorite is Always MJ, b/c fuck am I sucker for the premise. I won’t spoil the secret admirer, but when I realized who it was I was sold. Totally biased and in love. I’ve read it like three times. Taxes and TARDIS, so fucking adorkable. I’ve read some reviews that the end was overwrought, but I ate that shit right up. Prove Me Wrong was one I bought not sure if I’d like it, but the MC is so much love. Watching him fall is the cutest, most hilarious thing ever. The psychic touch was very well done. Don’t Judge a Book was the most serious of the lot, and I really liked both chars: their insecurities, the way they both behaved (often poorly) and how in the end they actually got it all to work. Much love to all these authors.
 
 
 
And … that appears to be it. I thought I had more. But double checking my lists, I see there were like five other books that I read, but am not inclined to rec.

Books I plan to buy once I have money again:

One Small Thing
The Chimera Affair
Mourning Jack
Sub-mission
The next two Hexslinger books :3
Armed & Dangerous (I am kind of nervous of reading this series, cause I loved the first one and don’t want to ruin it, but the latest one is out so I feel it’s time).

There are others, and we won’t discuss the books I have that I still need to read ^^;;; Oh, to have a week off just to catch up on my reading.

Everyone enjoy the weekend ^__^ I’m going back to torturing Jet and Jason. I don’t know why anyone allows me to write contemporary, I really don’t take it seriously enough.
