Reading Update
Gay Friendly (G-A-Y, Book 9) by Kim Dare. ebook short. Very good sweet m/m romance about an innocent young man staying at a gay friendly hotel who isn’t at all prepared for how “friendly” (and groping) the other guests are. Fortunately for him, an older, more dominant guest takes pity on him and offers his protection… but does the young man actually want more than just that safety? (If you don’t see a bookcover for this one, it means Total-E-Bound is down.)
Handcuffs and Glory Holes (Rawlings Men, Book 2) by Kim Dare. ebook short. Very good sweet’n’kinky short m/m romance about a mistreated sub who’s used to being pimped out and doesn’t dare believe that things can be different.
Gaymes by Jenna Byrnes, Gwendolyn Cease, Kim Dare, Carol Lynne, Jude Mason, Devon Rhodes, & Lisabet Sarai. ebook collection. Overall enjoyable collection of m/m romances, each focused around a game of some sort, such as Highland games, pool, Scabble, and flag football. Five of the six stories were good or better and one story was kinda meh.
Samhain Enchanted Evening by M. King. free ebook short. Ok freebie short m/m romance about a guy whose life feels very dull to him these days and he doesn’t see that changing at the Halloween party he has to attend.
Thirteen Maidens by M. King. ebook short. Good m/m romance short about two guys who are taking a week to visit standing stones, including the mysterious standing stones known as the Thirteen Maidens.
The Dream Thief by M. King. ebook short. Good fantasy m/m short about a guy who has incredibly realistic feeling dreams of a dream lover that start when he’s a teenager and gain power through the years.
Spam! It’s What’s for Christmas by Lenore Black. ebook short. Very good short m/m holiday romance about a guy who was fired and then dumped by his boyfriend. He hasn’t had any luck finding a new job while he pines for his boyfriend… until he answers a modeling ad. *ahem*
Because It’s True by Willa Okati. ebook. So-so m/m romance about a guy who’s given up on dating since his last boyfriend ditched him while they were traveling to Canada to get married. This never came together for me – the guys never seemed like actual guys and the book could easily have been half as long as it was. Also, I wanted to slap characters. Frequently. But hey, I like the cover! :)

From the Midsummer’s Nightmare Daily Dose…
Charlies Chuckles by Clare London. ebook short. Very good short paranormal m/m romance about two guys who live in the same building, but have never spoken until a morning of small disasters sends them careening into each other.
I Can See Right Through You by Zahra Owens. ebook. Good paranormal m/m romance about a writer who’s staying in his aunt’s old house after she had to move to a care facility. He discovers that the house has a ghost… a ghost he comes to care about deeply.
Oubliette by G.S. Wiley. ebook short. So-so historical paranormal m/m short about an Englishman who was captured by Spaniards after his ship was wrecked.
Careful What You Wish For by Elizabeth Copland. ebook short. Ok short paranormal m/m romance about a guy who’s had a crush on his oblivious roommate for a long time.
What’s Past Is Presence by Lori C. Hawkins. ebook short. Meh short m/m romance about a couple who discover that their house may be haunted… or is it? A large part of the meh on this one was the choppy, simplistic language.

  • Thanks for the link on the ebooks reader. I am still trying to decide on what to get to replace my Fitzroy…

    Love the stealing wireless note …. funny..

    What a haul of book you got through.. I love the cover on the Okati book.

    It looks like a Nunn piece, it also looks similiar to the artwork in Black Wade

    P.S. Chaos.
    I see the weekend began early for you or are you just resting the Paw O’ Death..

    Erotic Horizon’s last post ..Waiting on Wednesday- Gone Too Far – Angela Winters

  • Crap. How can I have a good Friday without time to go through all the linketies and ooh and aww over kittens and find out valuable stuff like what a knork is. Stupid training.

    I WANT those striped Dr. Seuss shoes. I have plain red, need stripes. :-)

    I’ll be back after work to click away to my hearts content.

  • I’ve been enjoying my ereader experience. My husband who gave it to my birthday I think is a bit surprised at how much use I get out of it. I’ve read three library books and a number of other books in the last two weeks. Not too bad with all of the things I’ve got going.

    Oh, and I shared the Hyperbole link with everybody! It’s just such a dog thing.

    I blame you for my ass being stuck to this kitchen chair for the last 30 minutes.

    I like the Chucks, too, but my feet – they can’t do it. I saw some sparkly ones the other day and really wanted them, but all I’d be able to do is sit down with my feet up and admire them. :(

  • I love Friday mornings! Two cups of coffee and lots of fun links. Thanks! And thanks for the mention.

    After reading the article on the iTunes hacking I count myself lucky. My account was hacked but only charged around $25 which Paypal promptly returned. I love Paypal!
    Lily’s last post ..New Books Available – Week 27

  • Okay, I’m back. I had to send that funny dating thing to my friend Craig. That’s probably why he doesn’t have a boyfriend.

    That kitty eating the angel was hiliarious.

    I too liked Spam, but I read it at Christmas. LOL And I knew there was a book I read that I didn’t review, the WO one. I wanted to slap him so bad at the end and tell him to get a grip on reality. Sigh. Clare London’s seems like it might be worth getting.

    I’ve missed my internet today. LOL I think I have a problem. But I’m in no hurry to find a cure. :-)

    you know you don’t scare us chaos…… **raises eyebrow at him**

    Mommie, thanks for all the linkity links!
    It is past Friday! Yaya.. now it can slow the hell down!
    I hope all is well hon!

    Plenty of linkity to keep me busy this weekend. ;)

    For me, I think the reason why I don’t want to pay the same price for an ebook as a real is because a physical book is something I can touch so that makes it more tangible. Plus you can always trade your physical books for others so the physical books have more value truly in my opinion.

    I hope you guys are enjoying your weekend!! :)

  • I can’t figure out how you have time every week to find all this stuff!

    The Bendable Bike….okay that is just scary. I mean how could it stand the test of time. And after a trip to the emergency with my husband several years back from a bike accident on a normal bike, I can just imagine th epotential lawsuits. Not that we sued anyone, he was being an idiot on the bike and flipped it. But I work for attorneys, and I’ve lapsed into always thinking about lawsuits. Scary I know.

    Don’t worry Chaos, if your mom keeps waking you up with the annoying photography, call me, we’ll see if the firm will sue her.

  • Well that’s rather inhospitable of you, Chaos!

    As usual, a bunch of great linkety-links. The snow globe thing makes me think we ought to fire TSA from airport security. They have just gone too far this time.

    The wine-vending machine is weird. It’s just a good thing I don’t live there. That’s even worse than having to show your ID to get a decongestant.

    And last but not least, I’ve never worn Chucks in my life, but those Suess shoes might make me have to do it.
