Reading Update
Rescue Me by Scarlet Blackwell. ebook. Excellent m/m romance about a rich, angry, nasty homophobic guy who nearly dies in a car crash. When he’s eventually able to go home, he needs home nursing care and finds himself uncomfortably attracted to his male nurse. I’ll warn you that I suspect some people are probably going to hate this as much as I loved it – there’s a lot of angst, a lot of being stuck and not making any progress, a lot of lashing out at others because of how he feels about himself. And it all manages to feel more real to me than a lot of GFY tends to.
Foxe Tail (Skyler Fox Mysteries, Book 1) by Haley Walsh. ebook. Good m/m mystery about a young high school English teacher who stumbles across a dead body in the alley outside of a club. Be aware that this is first book in a trilogy and lots of things are left open at the end.
War Games by Kim Dare. free ebook short. Good kinky free short m/m romance about a geek with a crush on the forceful security guard at work. When they’re out doing a war games team building exercise, things get interesting.
Mistletoe & Submission by Kim Dare. ebook. Very good kinky holiday m/m romance about a guy who joined a bdsm club as a dom, but finds that his feelings for his extremely dominant friend confuse the issue for him. But since his friend seems to think so poorly of all submissives, it’s a moot point, right?
Eight Nights by Keira Andrews. ebook. Very good holiday m/m romance about a college student who ends up spending Hanukkah with his annoying dorm mate’s family after said dorm mate’s mother realized he didn’t have anywhere else to go for the holidays. How is it that his dorm mate’s brother isn’t annoying at all?
Daybreak (Eight Nights, Book 2) by Keira Andrews. ebook. Very good holiday m/m romance about the college student and the dorm mate’s brother, starting seven or eight months after the first book. A lot more angst in this one – I even got a little sniffly.
All I Want for Christmas by Linda Reilly. ebook short. Ok short parnormal m/m holiday romance about a med student, in denial about being gay, who’s visiting friends in New York City for the holidays. The paranormal aspect of the story took my completely by surprise, but I guess it makes the insta-love more acceptable…
Ice Around the Edges by Mary Calmes. ebook short. Good short holiday m/m romance about a guy who’s in the hospital recuperating from being shot and is very surprised when the ex who dumped him out of the blue ten years ago shows up at his bedside.
Better with Sprinkles by Chrissy Munder. ebook short. Advent Calendar. Good short m/m holiday romance about a biochemistry major in study panic whose roommate finagles him into baking 20 dozen cookies for a charity event. Includes family sugar cookie recipe at the end! 🙂
Mariah the Christmas Moose by Andrew Grey. ebook short. Cute short m/m holiday story about a teacher, newly arrived in Alaska, who calls the police about a monster (er, moose) in his back yard and meets a very interesting police officer as a result.
All Snug by B.G. Thomas. ebook short. Good short m/m holiday romance about two guys who both show up at an antique store, trying to buy the same bed for their boyfriends. They come up with a multipart contest to see who should be able to buy the bed. It was, unfortunately, completely predictable.
GI Joe Holiday by Amberly Smith. ebook. Good m/m holiday romance about a guy in Navy SEAL training who gets picked to pose for a statue that will be displayed on a military base. Because of DADT, he can’t let on that he’s gay, but he finds himself very attracted to the sculptor. This had a strange, sort of paranormal twist to it that really took me by surprise.
The Hanukkah Surprise by Rebecca Lynne Fullan. ebook short. Good short m/m holiday romance about a couple, one of whom hates Hanukkah and the other of whom hates surprises, heading off on a Hanukkah surprise.
By the Chimney with Dare by Leigh Ellwood. ebook short. Ok short m/m holiday romance about a limousine driver who chauffeurs a very sexy Santa to a party…
Fun with Dick by G.A. Hauser. free ebook short. Meh short m/m holiday story about an established couple getting busy with the assistance of whipped cream, hot fudge, and more.

  1. I, too, have an office holiday party tonight! And I am still reading faithfully, even though not commenting as often. Just finished up my semester.

  2. I read the NYT article and the corresponding piece at ReadReactReview and feel like one big thing was missing from the equation. The only genre that is really embracing ebooks is the romance genre. If I could buy the latest book by YA author Tamora Pierce for the same as a paper back and then buy the entire back list at a bit of a discount I would have done so. I read my hardcovers of her books all the time and will eventually buy them for the ereader (because I get tired carrying 1-2 400+ page books around), but if they embraced the new technology I would have shelled out the 50+ bucks now for all of the books.

  3. Especially excellent linkety today! Sign me up for a sonic screwdriver, please. I’m not in danger of becoming a snowbird anytime soon — love the woolly sweaters far too much for that.

  4. I about had a heart attack when I saw that at least on person in the UK calls their penis “Morning Glory”… that’s too close for comfort!

    Amazing group of links today Chris, I enjoyed everything I’ve seen so far. Can’t wait to view more when I get off work.

    I second Jodi’s statement – sign me up for a sonic screwdriver!

  5. I am not pleased to learn that Pyrex is no longer borosilicate in the US.

    And, yeah, that shirt pocket…not so useful.

    Also, despite what CommentLuv says, I actually have a new blog post for today! Hmph.

  6. How come in romance books they always have sex dreams about some hot guy they ran into, but I never do? Why is that? It’s not fair. And I want that sleepytime chair for my office.

    Those melted snowmen were cute.

    Not sure I liked some of those food dresses and I’ll pass on the fudge. Ewwwww.

    The exercise chair is definitely dangerous.

  7. YAY linkity!!!

    I would love to see recordings of my dreams – they’re typically total freakshows, and would probably only be interesting to me, but still – how cool!

    I would gravely injure myself…and others with that exercise office chair!

    Awwww – you put a link up to my naughty girls! Thanks! 😀

  8. Sigh. How did I hit enter? I wasn’t finished.

    I adore Squirrel!Neo.

    Ha! That is exactly why I turn on the TV.

    I think the first book is a pass for me. I will have to check out those Keira Andrews books some day and the mystery one sounds interesting. Although I’m trying to keep up with what I have. Too busy. I hate being busy. 🙂

    Have a great weekend.

  9. I think I could use a chair bed at work today. It seems not many people are going to be in the office… they’re all out on vacation or doing stuff around the plant instead of at their desks.

    And I’m not surprised to see that Farmville was supposed to make you anxious. It worked on me — which is why I quit.

    Is it just me, or was it rather sad to read the end of the Squirrel!Terror saga?

  10. OMG that fudge is G R O S S!!! Who the hell would eat that? LOL

    Considering you have had another wild week and are limping along this is an amazing post.

    The solar powered hornets? Yikes And, the MRI of a birth? WHY? LOL

    Mayhem – fight girl, fight!!

    I hope you are well Chris, I don’t know about you but I’m darn glad it’s the weekend!..

  11. Interesting facts on dreams.
    Love Calibre but not sure I want to get into plug-ins.
    Hmmm, could it be Farmville that’s stressing me out so?
    Office bed chair. A must have!
    The baby MRI pic is truly disturbing. 0_0
    I’ll take one of the Christmas Elf suits (elf most definitely included)
    LOL, that’s a huge pocket.
    Cute snowmen, eh? on the dresses and yuk on the fudge.
    I loved the Dawn of the Teddy video.
    I’ve read a few of those, agree with your thoughts, and have a few on my wish list.
    Whew!!!!! Great linkity post once again. Thanks for the mention! 🙂

  12. Fabulous linkity, as usual. 🙂

    I do not like the pic of the kitty on the balcony. When I see that picture, I can’t help but think that the kitty eventually went splat. Cat-the-Second is the clumsiest kitty on the planet. I know she would be a goner if she were allowed on a balcony like that.

    That office chair/bed looks like it would be easy to tip over.

  13. Oh good links this week. I love the wreath with the action figures – too funny.

    And yum on the GF recipes. :)’

    The Keira Andrews books look good. I’ll have to look into those. 🙂 (Among others of course. lol)

  14. Oh I like those melted snowmen cookies.

    LOL, I think I’ve got to have a dancing cat speaker.

    That’s me in the big part of the pie for “Why I turn on the TV”.

    I’m pretty sure I need a chair that folds out into a bed at the office. 😉

  15. Sonic screwdrivers? Really geeking out now…

    Am scared / excited about the possibility of recording dreams. I wonder how they know that all animals dream. Do they mean all mammals or maybe birds or fish dream. It’d be cool to see what they see.
