Reading Update
Faith and Fidelity by Tere Michaels. ebook. Good grief. You’d think, since I was rereading this excellent m/m romance, that I wouldn’t cry. You would be so, so wrong.
Love and Loyalty by Tere Michaels. ebook. Another reread. Tere Michaels can write a darn good m/m romance, even if this one didn’t have as much impact on me as Faith and Fidelity (i.e., I didn’t cry).
Catnip Crazy (Cat House, Book 2) by Julia Talbot. ebook short. Not Talbot’s best, but sort of a cute (if a bit silly) m/m paranormal.
Jumping into Things (Thatcher Brothers, Book 1) by Julia Talbot. ebook. This book actually contains two pretty good m/m romances. The first is about pilot Jed Thatcher who falls for a prickly fire jumper. The second is about Army Airborne instructor Ross Thatcher, who hasn’t ever been attracted to another guy before.
Open Sesame (A Not Quite Wicked Tale) by Mia Watts. ebook short. Fun and very steamy m/m romance based on Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves, updated with insider trading and many fewer thieves.
A Wolf in Men’s Clothing (A Not Quite Wicked Tale) by Dakota Rebel. ebook short. Very enjoyable m/m paranormal romance based on Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf, with Red now being a guy in a red hoodie and the Wolf now being a werewolf.
One of Those Days by Zathyn Priest. free ebook short. Nicely done short m/m romance about a chiropractor who discovers the jock who bullied him in high school is his next patient.
Entanglements by Fae Sutherland and Marguerite Labbe. ebook. Decent m/m romance about whether it’s worth risking everything to maybe have it all.
With This Ring (Tabloid Star, Book 1.5) by T. A. Chase. ebook short. Ok m/m romance about the guys from Tabloid Star tying the knot. I fear it exceeded my syrupy sugary quotient…
Leftovers by Treva Harte. ebook. Good m/m romance about two guys who only see each other once a year, at Thanksgiving. After eight years, that isn’t enough for either of them anymore.
Loving the Rain by Drew Zachary. ebook short. Decent m/m romance (set in Ottawa) about an environmentalist and an artist who uses recycled materials who meet while they’re waiting out a cloudburst in a coffee shop.
The Painted House by Drew Zachary. ebook. Nice, non-angsty m/m romance about a location scout who meets an artist while looking for a location in Nova Scotia.
Once Upon a Veterinarian by Drew Zachary. ebook. A cop and a veterinarian meet when the cop starts investigating a string of pet poisonings in this m/m romance.
Summer Fever by Catt Ford. ebook. Pretty good m/m romance about a guy staying at a lake cabin and the cop he asked for directions on the way there.
Feeding Dragons by Misa Izanaki. ebook short. Ok m/m paranormal romance about a dragon shapeshifter who takes a liking to a young Japanese cook. (For those of you who really enjoy descriptions of food in your reading, this might be of particular interest.)
In the Heat of the Moment by Kim Dare. ebook. Steamy and kinky m/m tale in which a dominant works to convince a submissive that there’s nothing shameful in being submissive.
All’s Fair in Love and Advertising by Lenore Black. ebook. I really enjoyed this m/m romance about a hyper advertising exec who knows better than to get involved with a prospective client… usually.
Broomsticks and Stones by Jane Davitt. ebook short. Cute paranormal m/m romance short about two wizards.
Change of Heart by Kiernan Kelly. So-so paranormal m/m romance about a vet (who’s a werewolf) who hasn’t been doing a very good job getting over his evil ex.
Feeling Safe by Sonja Spencer. ebook. A cop rescues a guy from an in-progress burglary, then takes the guy home. My biggest complaint was the sometimes dizzying point-of-view changes – every paragraph for a while… including the cat.

  1. Chris- Thank you for saying that I-Pad sounds like something Kotex would make. I thought the same thing, but I don’t always voice my thoughts around the tech people here….if you know what I mean.

    And I’m sure you do.

  2. Busy girl you have been. For some reason I really didn’t care for Painted House that much. I also found I wanted to slap the vet occasionally in Once Upon a Vet. LOL

    The cat had a point of view? O_O

  3. Holy Catwoman! Girl, you are the Queen of linkity links!!! And of course the books!!!

    Oh… cat point of view… that would be interesting Chaos! Maybe Mommie should let you write your own book!

    Hope you are having a great Friday Chris!!!

  4. You know, I have Faith & Fidelity, I bought it when it came out and I STILL haven’t gotten round to readingit. But I might have to if it made you cry….

  5. The soul-snatching cat looks just like my Hannibal, who, coincidentally, was extremely intent on snatching my soul whilst I slept last night. It was colder in the bedroom than usual and he slept on or next to my head most of the night.

  6. Dammit! I hate it when I miss bubble wrap appreciation day! That just sucks.

    So was it you that did the tie-guy post? That’s him on Open Sesame – who’d a thunk he’d now be involved with Ali Baba and the 40 thieves?

    Lovin the lips on the One of These Days cover. Very nice.

  7. Thanks for all the reader links. I’m very excited about the feed tracking on web sites that don’t have RSS feeds. Yay Google! You always find the good ones. 🙂

    Stay warm! I’m trying to, grant it Texas isn’t as cold as your neck of the woods but it got very cold today after having 60F weather all week.

    Many thanks for the mention!!

  8. Once again another wicked list of link…

    Loving the book list as well – I have read about 60% of those… I do so love Tere Micheals work, can’t wait to see what she does for the third book…

    Drew Zachary – is like the perfect author who is minimum on the plot, but not too cute where you can’t appreciate the characters – love their work…

    Everytime I think of that author – I think fire engine sex… me so want fire engine sex…..

    I love the boy on One Of Those days…. Oh to be young again…

    ***
    Didn’t we hear of the cat flash back point of view – you better tell Chaos that his day has come… it has so come…

  9. I didn’t think of the iPad thing until you mentioned it – now I’ll never hear it without snickering at least a little. I don’t know if I should thank you our curse you…
