Reading Update
A Shifter Christmas (Lost Shifters, Book 8 ) by Stephani Hecht. ebook. Good paranormal m/m holiday romance mostly focused on Noah and Seth, but moving other parts of the story along, too. If the next book is what I think it will be, things are going be very interesting!
Chasing Alex by Em Woods. ebook short. Ok short m/m romance about two guys who’ve worked together for several years and have both wanted more, although neither realized the other felt the same. Both of them seemed to spend too much time jumping to conclusions and overreacting, which I found frustrating.
Secret Santa Surprise by Tam. free ebook short. Very good, very funny short m/m holiday romance about a guy who works for a sex toy manufacturer and discovers that he has a son he didn’t know about.
The Christmas Throwaway by R.J. Scott. ebook. Very good m/m holiday romance about a throwaway, a nearly eighteen-year old whose abusive and controlling father kicked him out for being gay, and about the young cop who finds him half-starved and half-frozen, trying to sleep in a churchyard. I hadn’t read anything by RJ Scott before, but I’ll definitely need to read more from her.
In the Wind by Wren Boudreau. free online short. Very good short paranormal m/m holiday romance about a wolf shifter finding his true mate.
First Christmas by Diana DeRicci. ebook. Very good short paranormal m/m holiday romance about a cougar shifter/wolf researcher who rescues an injured wolf shifter, then provides a safe haven for him to recuperate from not only his physical but also his psychological wounds.
Christmas Wish by B.G. Thomas. ebook short. Very good short m/m holiday paranormal romance about an ordinary guy who becomes obsessed with a hunky leatherman and wishes he was hot enough to attract the leatherman’s attention.
Batteries Not Included by J.L. Merrow. ebook short. Very good short paranormal m/m holiday romance about a guy who goes to bed with a doll of his favorite singer on the other pillow and wakes up with a naked man in his bed.
Pop-Ups by Clare London. ebook short. Very good short m/m holiday romance about a workaholic who’s suddenly left without anywhere to go for Christmas.
Fishbowl by Dawn Kimberly Johnson. ebook short. Very good short m/m holiday romance about a guy who’s working as window mannequin for the holidays and who becomes enamored with a man he sees through the window several times.
A Reason to Come Home by Justine Currie. ebook short. Pretty good short m/m holiday romance about a guy who’s afraid to get involved with anyone after having his heart broken. Then something happens on a business trip that scares him even more…
Comfort and Joy by Selina Brody. ebook short. Ok short m/m holiday romance a guy who goes overseas to pick up the baby he adopted and meets a handsome Peace Corps volunteer. This one just didn’t grab me.
Revelations of the Heart by Lori C. Hawkins. ebook short. Ok short m/m holiday romance about a florist who suddenly meets two intriguing guys on the same day… and then things get a bit confusing for him. This was another one that just didn’t work for me, possibly because there was an awful lot of story packed into not many pages.
Christmas Tail by D.J. Manly. ebook short. Ok short m/m holiday romance about a guy who’s been naughty (too much “boinking”), so Santa takes him to Christmas Land to be punished with chastity. Of course, it doesn’t quite work out like that…
‘Twas a Dark and Delicious Christmas: Manlove Edition by J.P. Barnaby, K.C. Beaumont, & Troy Storm. ebook. Pretty good m/m holiday collection focused on Santa’s elves. JP Barnaby’s story was good, KC Beaumont’s story was very good, and Troy Storm’s story was ok.
The Perfect Gift by Jade Falconer. ebook short. Sweet (a little too sweet for me) short m/m holiday romance about a guy who takes a homeless man with amnesia home to feed him and give him a warm place to sleep.

  1. Everything has its price, Chaos. πŸ™‚

    Adorable castle siege! And people, people. One does not WEAR bacon. One eats it. Or lets the darling pig go free. (Just not in my neighborhood please. I am very fond of bacon and pigs are cute but ……bacon.)

  2. Merry Christmas to Mayhem, Chaos and you!

    And many thanks to you for the sock yarn and “Cheaper than Therapy”! Coincidentally, they arrived in the same batch of mail as my copy of “Sock Yarn One Skein Wonders” – so many projects and now I have yarn! I loved the book, too; it has been particularly appropriate this holiday season, as I’ve been struggling a bit.

  3. I totally loved the ‘slowest line’ video! I always feel I’ve picked the absolute worst line. πŸ˜€
    What an extravaganza of lights in those videos. I really liked the Music Box Dancer though.
    Barbie is such a bad girl!
    The gingerbread men in red Star Trek uniforms was cute.
    Pretty good set of non-gifts for werewolves. πŸ™‚
    Interesting how they can write on a piece of hair or a snowflake.
    The room in a box was pretty neat too.
    Huh… 0_0
    Life without a cat… boring!
    Loved Tam’s story and Wren’s was really good too. Comfort and Joy and The Perfect Gift were nice, and sweet.

    Merry Christmas!!

  4. Life without a cat…so not anything I’m willing to contemplate.

    Hubby now wants me to make “expendable gingerbread crewmen.”

    That room in a box was wild – oh to be that organized…

    Love, love, love Hyperbole and a Half!

    Wishing you, Chaos and May a wonderful holiday!

  5. Happy Christmas to you!!!!

    I’m so glad that Sirius and Tamyra haven’t decided to open Christmas presents like those big cats! We didn’t manage to get a tree this year so that recycled bottle tree would have done well for us.

    I enjoyed Life without a cat but I’d rather have life with a cat or three πŸ™‚

  7. I love that the Star Trek cookies all have red shirts! I must make some of those cute little owls. Thanks for all the great links — hope you had a great Christmas.

  8. Weird and wonderful links as usual… definately had a chuckle at a few of them..

    I have also read a few of your reading list this week..

    The Christmas Throwaway – I loved the bigger picture of the story and really wished the author had gone a little deeper into the whole throwaway kids aspect..

    Hopefully the author will follow up or this might be an area we see other authors writing about…
