  • Some friends of mine have been fostering a pregnant cat (their very first fostering experience!). Imagine their shock when she had eight kittens! Yes, I might post some pictures of wee calico kittens at some point. πŸ™‚

Reading Update
Boots by Angel Martinez. ebook. Excellent m/m fairy tale, based on Puss in Boots, about an estranged youngest son (going through some rough times) who inherits only $300 and the family cat when his father dies…
True: Bruce & V fanfic by anonymous. ebook. If there was a fanfic this good for Blay and Qhuinn, I would be done reading the Black Dagger Brotherhood series – and I would be a lot happier. Since the Warden hates on fanfiction, this ebook seems to be spreading very quietly between friends.
Rules of Engagement by L.A. Witt. ebook. reread. Very good m/m romance (that I had a hard time putting down, even rereading it) about a recently divorced guy who finds himself powerfully drawn to a guy he meets playing pool in a bar. Yes, I got sniffly, so you know there was some angst. I think my only complaint was the abruptness of the ending. I really liked this quote from one of the other characters: Ò€œIf I knew how a lot of my relationships would have turned out, I never would have gotten involved in themÒ€¦. And I would have missed out on some of the best times in my life.Ò€ (Of course, for me, I would also have missed out on some of the worst times in my life Γ’β‚¬β€œ you?)
Rain (Rules of Engagement #2) by L.A. Witt. ebook. Good follow-up to Rules of Engagement, which ended rather abruptly. Rain starts two years later, when Brandon and Dustin are engaged and trying to deal with some lingering family issues.
Undercover Blues by Laney Cairo. ebook. reread. Hmm. Whose bright idea was it to send the allegedly straight cop undercover to hook up with the crime lordÒ€ℒs brother? πŸ™‚ Very good.
Unfinished Business (Undercover Blues #2) by Laney Cairo. ebook short. reread. Good short m/m romance that follows up with the guys from Undercover Blues a few months later, when a reporter has tracked them down.
Snapshots & Bylines (Friends to Lovers #1) by Stephani Hecht. ebook. Cute m/m romance about two guys who have one awkward night together right after high school, then don’t have any contact with each other for ten years.
Handcuffs & Megabytes (Rawlings Men #7) by Kim Dare. ebook short. Very good kinky short m/m romance about a brash young computer geek who’d like to dabble in dominance with the older cop to whom he’s supposed to demonstrate a computer program.
Angel & the Assassin (Book 1) by Fyn Alexander. ebook. Very good BDSM May-December m/m romance about a cold-hearted British government assassin sent to the US to kill an international arms dealer who’s supposed to be alone in the house… Strangely, the assassin finds himself unable to kill the man’s stepson, who witnessed the hit, and instead brings him back to the UK. (Yes, that is Slave Boy!)
Resisting the Tempation by Valentina Heart. ebook. I’m finding it really hard to rate this m/m romance because I really disliked the main character… and the story is told in first person from his point of view. Obviously your mileage will vary.
Hellbourne 1: Lost and Found by Amber Kell. ebook short. Ok short paranormal m/m romance about a half-fae who was dumped for a woman by his werewolf boyfriend. This is actually one book split into three very short books, which I find annoying.
Acting Naughty (Action #1) by G.A. Hauser. ebook. Ok m/m romance about two (supposedly) straight actors playing a gay couple in a cable television series who begin to have feelings for each other. This book ends with very little resolved. (Yes, that is Candy Cane Guy!)
Playing Dirty (Action #2) by G.A. Hauser. ebook. Meh m/m romance that I only read because things were left so open-ended in the previous book. The menagey bits took me by surprise and the main characters spent way too much time crying at the slightest provocation.
The Highest Bidder by Kimberly Hunter. ebook. So-so m/m romantic suspense about a wealthy Japanese businessman who’s been working with Interpol to bring down a human trafficking and drug ring. Contrary to what the cover might suggest, there’s absolutely no kink in the book.

  1. I have Rules of Engagment on my TBR pile. I must get around to starting that.

    I couldn’t finish Angel and the Assassin. I hated both characters so much I started to feel physically ill over what might happen in the book and had to stop reading. I don’t often get such strong feelings of dislike for books but this one pushed all my buttons in entirely the wrong way. Yet there are loads of people, like you, who really enjoyed it, so I think I’m in the minority :).

  2. 1. You should visit us down south. Snow? It was 80 and sunny here for most of the week!

    2. That skull is amazing. I have an unhealthy obsession with them.

  3. I believe Gizmodo over Teleread idiots any old day.

    Teleread post just basically says that yes the Kindle does delete old subs automatically and that you cannot transfer old editions between platforms.

    It does not say that what Gizmodo reported does not happen it just tries to confuse the issue even worse. Typical for Teleread.

  4. That Onion article was funny.

    I have to confess I have never stolen a hotel towel. They are usually not that good and I always figured they’d just charge my credit card.

    Ugh. Cupcake with Cadbury Egg in side. Yuck.

    Embroidered eggshells are pretty impressive. That carved eggshell is amazing. I wonder how many ended up in pieces before they got one that worked?

    The Peeps topiary is disturbing. Okay, Peeps are disturbing.

    Damn you Autocorrect kills me. That little penguin is so cute.

    I think the only books I’ve read there are the Undercover Blues ones. Well, I half-read Acting Naughty way back in the day. DNF I’ll have to check out Boots though. Sounds good.

  5. Until a group of researchers made the program, it is fairly difficult for the average user to get the location information from the iPhone.

    My gut feeling is that there are tons of applications that need location information and that there is some kind of location tracker available for these programs to access. I know my ipod accesses my current location information when I look for the closest bus to take.

    Also I had to show my friend the Dune cover. We read all of the comments, because they were hilarious!

  6. Those penguins are so damn cute! The one in the middle even has a hat. awww.

    Living in MI…yeah, those pics were right on. And my response when I woke up the other morning to a snowy winter wonderland was very similar to hers, except it went more like “What the f&ck is this?”

    First off, I have send Kassa an email to enter the blogcrawl. I had such a blast reading all the fangurl moments last year πŸ˜‰

    Also that JL Langley is plagiarized is just three kinds of bad. I’m glad its found out and action is taken. I mean, you must really a moral moron for using someone else his creativity like that *shakes head in disgust*

    I had to laugh-out-loud when I read the post on seld control. Now that I am dieting I have to have quite some sefl control and just try to distract myself…geuss I already learned that lesson *smirk*

  9. I have enough problems with Katie using me as a scratcher when I wear jeans. I’m afraid a human-shaped scratcher would just make it worse.

    That rabbit camera case looks a little too much like a diaper cover. πŸ˜‰

    Whoa, eight kittens!

    LOL, at the backs of websites and how to fix any computer.

    Good set of links!

  10. None of your books jump out at me this week – really odd covers this week as well..

    and that publisher is back using that weird ass cover – Cairo book…

    Neat linkys this week – Definately a few eye openers…

    @Chaos – I am starting to worry about you now… May you need to watch him..
