AMY'S PICK: 




This is one of the best emotional, absolutely beautiful books that I have read. "Acceptance is Serenity" says a lot about this book, the tattoo that Iz gets to start the book out. The family that is filled with love that tragedy rocks. Flynn. "it was his eyes I noticed first, even from many feet away I felt their intense stare" These two Flynn a model/actor and Issac (Iz) a photographer are held together by an intense need for each other. The journey is one you can't miss out on, the highs and lows, it was amazing!!!

I HAVEN'T READ THIS ONE, BUT NOW I WANT TO! :p DO YOU AGREE WITH AMY? IF SO VOTE FOR ONE BELOW!

I loved this book because it's a great twist on your typical age difference. Plus the BDSM aspect is done so so well! Plus it was a great tie in to the other books in the series that I also loved!

I LOVE THIS BOOK TOO! IS THIS YOUR PICK FOR BEST BOOK? IF YOU AGREE WITH JESSICA VOTE FOR DOM OF AGES BELOW!

GRACE'S PICK:




When Bec told me of this my first though was OMG NO WAY! LOL but my very next though was of book 2 in the A Kind of Story series by Lane Hayes.  Books 1-3 were all released in 2016 and all of them are phenomenal.  I absolutely fell in love with Rand and Will in book 1 and Tim and Carter in book 3 BUT Zeke and Benny just wormed their way into my heart and refuse to leave.  Not only are these two MCs one of my all-time favorite couples, the entire story is well written and hands down, one of the best books I've ever read.  If you haven't read it, OMG DO IT NOW!  If you agree with me that it is the best of 2016, then vote for A Kind of Romance below!

I ENJOYED THIS BOOK AS WELL! DO YOU AGREE WITH GRACE? VOTE FOR A KIND OF ROMANCE BELOW! 


JESSICA KENNEDY'S PICK:



UNEARTHED: DUNGEON BLACK DUOLOGY 1 by KORA KNIGHT AMAZON LINK

Unearthed by Kora Knight I have seriously been waiting for Sean and max since I met max in the upending Tad series. Kora was worried no one would like Max because he's so dark and broody, I think everyone who has read Unearthed can agree she had absolutely nothing to worry about. It was dark, poignant, hot and beautiful beyond all words. She nailed it like we all knew she would. Sean and max couldn't be more perfect for each other. The emotions are soul deep and the sex was hotter than Satans underwear lol!!!

JESS IS SO RIGHT, THIS IS AN AMAZING READ AND I LOVE THIS AUTHOR FOR SURE! IS IT YOUR FAVE BOOK OF 2016? IF SO VOTE BELOW FOR UNEARTHED!

LOVE & STRENGTH REVIEW!!


HELLO FRIENDS, I AM (FINALLY) HERE WITH MY REVIEW OF LOVE & STRENGTH; DANCERS SERIES 2 BY: GREIN MURRAY! THIS BOOK IS SO AMAZING, AND I CAN'T WAIT TO TELL YOU ABOUT IT! LET'S GET TO IT!!



BELIEVE ME, THIS IS THE PERFECT QUOTE FOR THIS BOOK! HERE IS MY REVIEW: 

Love & Strength
Dancers Series 2
by: Grein Murray
reviewed by: Becky

Skylar and Ryan have been happily married for a year, settling into their lives as performers for a theme park and living between the States and Australia. A tragic event threatens to change their lives forever. As Skylar struggles to come to terms with his current situation, he pushes Ryan away.

Ryan can’t believe what has happened to his husband, Skylar. One minute they were having the time of their lives-the next, their world was turned upside down. Ryan’s heart breaks with the growing distance placed between himself and Skylar. He knows he has to fight to keep the two of them together. Will love & strength be enough to overcome the challenges they face?




I loved book 1 of this series, and I was wondering how Grein would top it, well she did that and more with Love & Strength believe you me!!

Ryan and Skylar have been happily married for a year, but will a tragic accident change that? Not on Ryan's part, but will Skylar accept that Ryan loves him no matter what? Can these two get past what happened, or will it continue to haunt them? 

You guys have to read this book, Ryan and Skylar go through so much, and you will want to be there cheering them on every second! Thanks Grein, for a followup that lives up to the first book and then some! 

                                                     the 5 Sheep 813 rating :P

I HAD TO DO THIS RATING, I JUST HAD TO! BUY THE BOOK BELOW AND SEE WHY!!

SOMETHING TO DYE FOR REVIEW WITH GUEST REVIEWER!


HELLO FRIENDS, BELOW IS MY GIRL AMY CASEY'S REVIEW OF SOMETHING TO DYE FOR: CURL UP AND DYE MYSTERIES 2 BY AIMEE NICOLE WALKER!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS SERIES, AND THIS BOOK AMAZING, AND THE WAY IT ENDS OMG!! LET'S SEE WHAT AMY THOUGHT!!



I LOVE THIS QUOTE FOR THIS BOOK! HERE IS AMY'S REVIEW: 

Something To Dye For
Curl Up and Dye Mysteries 2
by: Aimee Nicole Walker
reviewed by: Amy Casey

A phone call in the middle of the night forces Detective Gabriel Wyatt out of his warm bed and into the frigid night to identify the body of a murdered man whose wallet contains Gabe’s business card instead of an ID. That night sets off a chain of events that chills Gabe to his bones when it appears that the killer has set his eyes on a new target – Josh Roman.

Josh comes face-to-face with a painful reminder of his past just when he’s ready to acknowledge that his feelings for Gabe go way beyond liking the man. How can he trust that his feelings for Gabe are right when before he’d always been so wrong?

Will Josh and Gabe finally acknowledge that what they have is something to live for or will they allow danger and doubts to destroy their chance at something amazing? 

Something to Dye For is book 2 in the Curl Up and Dye Mysteries series. These books are written to be read in order. They contain sexually explicit material and are intended for adults 18 and older. 





If you have not read book 1, Dyeing To Be Loved, then get to it, you are definitely missing out on an amazing mystery love story!!!  So go, what are you waiting for?? 

Now book 2, Something to Dye For, continues Josh and Gabe's "Something".  Gabe wants to call it the "R" word but Josh just doesn't think he's ready.  Gabe is out to prove him wrong. But with a murder in their county and all evidence points to Gabe, then the threats to Josh begin.  

I love how Aimee has wrote an intriguing mystery along with this hilarious, funny, emotional love story. The fun of getting to know each other, trying to keep Josh safe, the parents and all the excitement that the town and people of Blissville, Ohio bring.  

I don't want to give away anything but I can say that this series has become one of my favorites, Josh and Gabe are so different from each other that they are perfect!! 



In keeping with the "R" word, I give these guys and this wonderful book 5 stars (I'd give it 100 if I could) in the form of R blocks!!  I'm definitely rooting for that relationship!! 

I LOVE THIS RATING, AND THIS REVIEW! THANKS AMY!! BELOW IS THE LINK, IF YOU DON'T HAVE IT, GRAB THIS BOOK NOW!


THANKS FOR JOINING ME FOR THIS REVIEW, AND THANKS AGAIN AMY FOR THE GREAT REVIEW, AND AIMEE FOR THE GREAT BOOK!! :p SEE YOU GUYS NEXT TIME!!

Synopsis

Love.
The most powerful force in existence, but also the most ruthless. Cunning and deceptive.Man’s greatest Achilles heel. Leaving all who embrace it weak and vulnerable.
At least that’s how Dom-for-hire Max Kelley sees it, after the love of his life knocked him on his ass. A brutal blow that not only stole his breath, but decimated his ability to trust. Turning him cold and cynical. The TKO he never saw coming.

Love.
A mistake Max won’t ever make again.
Meaning no more relationships—not exactly a hardship. Just the thought of dating makes him queasy, and one of the reasons he doms for a living. To sexually engage without the poison of intimacy. The other reason? To keep his demons sated. With whips and chains, and scandalous kink. A fiery mix that always hits the spot.
That is, until a bright-eyed beauty walks into his life and refuses to leave.
Sean Matthews. College senior and flirt extraordinaire. Max’s newest—and greenest—client sub. Man, is he delicious; able to push Max’s buttons, able to make him crave the things he knows he shouldn’t. Sound the alarm, this can only mean trouble. Unfortunately, deterring Sean proves virtually impossible, and now Max finds himself at a crossroads.
Man up and kick his favorite sub to the curb… or succumb to his own caged desires.
Warning: This erotic, gay, BDSM romance contains intensely explicit sexual scenes both inside and out of the dungeon.

** Note from the author: In keeping with the promise I made to my Upending Tad devotees, I've included a small side story with Tad and Scott in book 2 where we delve a bit further into the developments of their relationship, and all the wonderful ways they've been keeping each other's hearts pounding. So, be prepared for a few more character point of views! Tad and Scott aren't going anywhere. They'll be around for the long haul. XXO

MY REVIEW: 


THIS IS THE PERFECT QUOTE FOR MAX!  HERE IS MY REVIEW: 

I was so excited to read this book, book 1 blew me away and left me wanting book 2 right away, Kora knows how to draw you in and deliver the goods for sure! 
Max can't get out of his head and the heartbreak of his past, which is why when he starts to feel more for his sub Sean than he is comfortable with, he pulls back and tries to pass Sean off to someone else. Will Sean go for it? Will Max go through with it? 
You get to catch up with Scott and Tad also, which I was thrilled with, and the best part of that is that it didn't detract from the story line of Sean and Max at all, which takes talent on the authors part! All in all, you will fall into this story just like you did book 1, and you can be sure there are plenty of hot and sexy times, and I mean HOT!!! You guys have to grab this book today! Thanks Kora, for giving Max and Sean the story they deserve!

FINDING A TOMORROW REVIEW!!


HELLO FRIENDS, BELOW IS MY REVIEW OF FINDING A TOMORROW BY KATHLEEN KERRIDGE AND BOY IS THIS BOOK AMAZING! LET'S TAKE A LOOK! 



THIS QUOTE IS PERFECT FOR THIS STORY! HERE IS MY REVIEW: 

Finding A Tomorrow
by: Kathleen Kerridge
reviewed by: Becky

Rami doesn't see himself as a survivor. He doesn't want to be one, either. At his lowest point, with everything he cared for lost forever, he knows there's only one way out. Rami is one of life's planners and he plans his death to the last small detail. It's no cry for help; he means to die.

Waking up on a hospital ward, Rami is devastated that he failed. It's impossible that he isn't dead, but the ache in his chest from being resuscitated and the bleeps of the monitors tracking his heartbeat say otherwise. And there's the quiet friendly stranger at his bedside who, for some reason, isn't prepared to let Rami be alone.

Hospitals, drugs and therapy lead Rami slowly towards a path where he begins to see a glimmer of a future, despite the darkness in the corners of his mind and the shadows that haunt him. Despite everything life might throw at him, Rami begins to believe that he has a future, and can find his tomorrow.




When you read a book by Kathleen Kerridge you know two things, one is that it is going to be an amazing read, and two that you are probably gonna cry! I love this author and if you haven't read her work,  when you do you will love her too! 

Rami wants to die, plain and simple, he planned for it, and thought he had a foolproof way of doing it, but when he ends up in a medical ward he knows he failed. A kind stranger named Ryan is there for Rami and he is surprised how much it means to him. 

Rami has a long road to recovery, mentally mostly, and when you find out his back story it will crush you, but Ryan never goes away and Rami starts to think maybe he can start to be happy once again. 

Can Rami and Ryan make it work? Is Rami emotionally ready for a relationship, and if so is there something from Ryan's past that will threaten their happiness? 

Read this book friends! It is amazing and it will take you on an emotional roller coaster, but you will love the ride! Thanks Kathleen for another brilliant story just like all the others!!

                                                 the 5 gemstone rating :)

I DID THIS RATING IN HONOR OF A THOUGHTFUL GIFT AND I CAN'T WAIT FOR YOU GUYS TO READ THE BOOK AND FIND OUT ABOUT IT! BELOW ARE THE LINKS, GRAB IT IF YOU DON'T HAVE IT!

THANKS FOR JOINING ME FOR MY REVIEW OF FINDING A TOMORROW, I KNOW YOU WILL ENJOY THIS LOVELY BOOK AS MUCH AS I DID! 



What Does It Matter?


Hello, most of you know me, I'm Bec, and I have been a reviewer of LGBTQ fiction for over 2 years, I usually don't use this blog as a personal forum but I feel like I need to say something now. I ran into my cousin in Wal Mart the other day and had an interesting conversation (interesting bad if we are being honest :P) I was telling him about my blog, since we don't see each other that much we were catching up, and when I told him it was LGBTQ fiction  that I reviewed, he said "Ewww those people are gross!!" I wanted to know what was gross about love, and he said, "I heard gay people don't have real relationships, how could they, they can't have kids." 

First of all, that is such crap, and secondly, just because a couple can't have children between the two of them, doesn't mean they can't have a family. I know some great straight couples that can't have kids and have to use other means to have a family, does that mean they are less than a family? That their relationship is less than real? NO! It doesn't, just like it doesn't mean that a gay relationship is less than! I firmly believe that if two people love each other, and are committed, then what does it matter who they are committed to? They're happy, that should be what we all care about! 

Imagine how invasive it would be for people to constantly stare at you and your partner like you were less than, who you love should have no bearing on what job you can get, or where you can go out without feeling like you are under a microscope, it just shouldn't. I get that people have beliefs but why are you able to spout that being gay is a sin, and we who support the LGBTQ community can't say a word in defense? I just shake my head sometimes because it is so baffling! I have made some of the best friends I have ever had since starting this blog, and they make you feel at home, and there is no judgement, that's the best part. 

Have you ever been in a Church and feel like you are being judged? I love my Church and I love the Lord, but my God is not one of scorn and hate, my God is one of love and acceptance. If a straight man has cheated on his wife and it is known in the Church, he can still be a Deacon, someone people come to for counseling and to pray with ( I have seen this happen), but if a man is married to another man or a woman to another woman, these people can't even teach Sunday School, or even feel welcome in some denominations, I just don't know why that is! There are so many people missing out on a great lesson about love and tolerance and it is a shame. 

Why should a man that isn't faithful be exalted and praised, but one in a faithful and loving relationship not even be allowed to share the knowledge he has? I have a hope that this will change one day, but I just don't know. I pray that tolerance will take the place of hate and love will overcome evil, but if that isn't possible, at least let people live their lives in peace. 

I am rambling but I will close with this, everyone has a right to live and love as they wish, everyone has a right to make choices that make them happy. So next time you see a couple holding hands and they happen to me a guy and a guy or a girl and a girl, just be happy that they look happy, don't be judgmental, for as the Bible says, "Judge not lest ye be judged", and honey no one is perfect! 

Thanks for listening, and remember: Love is Love!! 

Bec
