Greasy Boy by P.L. Ripley

Book Review

6/10

18806223

For Simon, sex had always been clean, gentle and safe. Now a chance encounter in a gas station bathroom gives Simon the opportunity to see what he has been missing. That is, if he can overcome his fear to delve into a greasy stranger through a glory hole. (M/M)

This is a BL story (boy love)/gay erotica.

Fair warning, there is mention of bodily fluid stains and a brief armpit action that might not be suitable for the squirmy. I know I kind of started to cringe at those parts, but other than that the story was interesting and steamy. The writing was well above what you expect for an erotica and a quickie story. Overall very enjoyable with the exception of those questionable moments mentioned above.

The publisher of this title, ForbiddenFiction (a part of Enspire Publishing), likes to stand out in their writing. Their stories lean more towards breaking out of the norm when it comes to the boundaries of original erotic fiction. Their stories tend to combine strong acts of sexuality with a bit more etiquette writing. Make sure you read the labels and tags for each title before buying to make sure you know exactly what you are going to be reading.

Now that we got that out of the way, there was one small repetition and slip in a scene regarding a character doing an action that had already taken place a few sentences before. This might have been caused due to fast writing or quick editing and doesn’t hinder the story or the quality of the writing. I must also point out that the writing does pick up and gets dirtier towards the end in regards to smut and BDSM situations. But even with this, the story is quite more than getting it on, it has a point and a lesson for the main character to learn.

Sum it up: A very greased up one night stand, well story takes place during the day but you get my point, that will make some jaws drop.

What I liked most: That the writer didn’t fear going outside the comfort zone of typical erotica stories.

What I liked the least: The like and dislike are kind of the same for me here. It had a very interesting premise, but there were some things that happened that kind of take away from the story.

Would I read the sequel(s)? Yes, as long as I ain’t eating while reading. But since this was a one-shot, will have to try his other works.

END An Apocalyptic Anthology is up next.

Tangled Beauty by K.L. Middleton

Book Review

10/10

51xhi8InakL

Sinclair Jeffries thought she knew what she was getting into when her zany, gay friend, Jesse Eddington, talked her into portraying his girlfriend during his parent’s anniversary party on Huntington Beach. That is, until she met Reed, Jesse’s sexy as hell older brother, and ends up getting much more than what she’d bargained for.

Reed Eddington assumed his future was settled until he met Sinclair, his brother’s so-called “girlfriend”, but the raw, sexual tension between them is hard to ignore. As he watches their ruse from the sidelines, he finds himself wanting to uncover more than just their amusing little facade.

This review was long in the making simply because I faded into the background that is daily life, but the book needed to be shared. Forgive me for the short and brief review, this book deserves a far better written one. Without further ado…

This was a very well written story and I enjoyed every minute of it. Tangled Beauty by K.L. Middleton has become one of my favorite reads of all time, so much so that I have since then added many of her books to my collection. This book is the first of a three book series that doesn’t fail to deliver.

If you like sexy, steamy, and top-notch romance escapades, this book is for you. From the funny and interesting scenario of a gay friend convincing our heroine to portray herself as his girlfriend to the having to figure out what to do when she meets Reed, her gay friend’s brother, this story doesn’t let you bet bored.

Sum it up: Well worth your money, but wait, it’s FREE so that is even better than finding a pot of gold under a rainbow. Ok, then let’s just say it’s well worth the read.

What I liked most: The characters and the situations they found themselves in.

What I liked the least: That it wasn’t longer. I didn’t realize I had reached the end until I did. Good thing there are two more books in the series.

Would I read the sequel(s)? Heck yes! I loved these characters too much to not see them again.

MIA? Not anymore (Plus New Challenge & Giveaway of Sorts)

The-Challenge-NEW-logo1

Really sorry for my absence. I hadn’t realized it had been almost two months since my last post. I do have book reviews to share, just haven’t had the time to edit them and post them up. I have been quite busy with life and my drawing. I also attend conventions and sell my art there.

The conventions have dimmed out and I have a bit more time to devote to this wonderful blog, which I missed very much. But no worries, I do have a great new challenge going on that you will all like.

NANOWRIMO has started and though this year I won’t be taking part in the writing aspect of it I will be continuing my writing tips from last year’s challenge. I will also be taking part in the 30 Days 30 Covers Challenge that runs along side NANOWRIMO. I am doing my own version of it since I can’t seem to figure out how the signing up for the offical challenge takes place. The best part of doing my own is that I can finally reveal my big surprise I have had in the works, at the end of the month one lucky reader/writer/commentor will get a FREE Book Cover.

Yup, you read right. I will be giving away one premade cover from my ever growing collection over at PremadeCovers4U. Please keep in mind that it will be one of my covers and not one created by one of the other artists. My covers are sold one time only, so don’t try to grab dibs on a cover that is currently up until the last day of the cover challenge because the cover might not be available then. This way you also don’t miss out on one of the wonderful new covers I design.

There is a catch. You have to of taken part in this year’s NANOWRIMO challenge and finished. The winner will need to send me the link to their NANOWRIMO page showing me the book they will be wanting the cover for. It is only fair. 🙂 This is meant as an extra incentive to finish that novel, without worrying about the cover. I will be posting a new blog entry with more info on it as the time approaches.

If you like this, go ahead and check out my Cover Challenge being posted over at my cover blog. Day 1-3 are already up and will be posted on the PremadeCovers4U shop later today.

Why settle for ONE free eBook when you can get several…?

Story-Cartel-logo

Since I missed June and July’s free eBook Spotlight I thought I give another shout out to Story Cartel. Amazon and Smashwords are filled with eBooks priced at $0. One can’t beat FREE, especially with Summer demanding those endless ICEEs and splashes in the pool. But what is even better is the chance to try a book out before it is released. Here are a few that have caught my attention from the great selection of genres Story Cartel has to offer:

The White Death by Daniel Rafferty

thewhitedeath

Expires in less than 21 hours

A deadly virus sweeping across Planet Earth…

An Alien Council with questionable motives and unlimited resources…

A threat to humanity greater than anything before…

It’s a busy day for the new President of the United States. To ensure humanity has a future and take drastic global action to curb the spread of the virus, President Thomas Morgan turns to the only people he can trust to solve the crisis and save humanity: Section 51, a team of scientists and public servants — and one loyal alien named Freda — operating beneath Area 51 in Nevada.

As human populations begin turning on each other, desperate for survival at all costs, civilized societies across the planet begin to disintegrate. Governments crumble, chaos reigns, and death spreads like wildfire. Can the president and Section 51 thwart the real possibility of extinction … and handle the consequences of their heart breaking decisions?

 

The Accord by Karl J. Morgan

theaccord

Expires in 17 days

A chance encounter with Zeet of The Accord almost doomed our galaxy in Tears of Gallia. Dave Brewster travels to a forgotten planet to uncover their intentions. The cyborgs of The Accord were once human, but have long ago moved their brains into robots. Now their leaders are massive constructed planets, hosting millions of smaller cyborgs and billions of human slaves who serve as laborers and food.

But The Accord has a problem. The Magallenic Clouds are running out of metal to build more robots. Now they must invade our galaxy to recruit new Friends and to harvest the metal and feedstock of our worlds.

While the Free Society masses its starship fleet to fight back, Dave must find a way to slow them down, or somehow convince them to end their heinous reign of terror. The Accord is an epic tale of impending war against a vastly superior enemy. It is also a story of new love, enduring faith and the ultimate power in the universe.

 

Demon’s Daughter (Cursed Series Book 1) by Amy Braun

demonsdaughter

Expires in 10 days

 

Wanted by law enforcement. Chased by drug cartels. Hunted by demons…

Constance Ramirez has more than her share of problems when it comes to protecting her adopted sister, Andromeda. Especially since Andromeda isn’t fully human, and her strange powers are dangerous and out of control.

But Constance will do anything to keep her safe, which won’t be easy with bounty hunters hired by the drug cartel she betrayed looking to capture her, and savage monsters seeking to take Andromeda for their own dark purposes.

Being a big sister has never been so hard… Or so deadly.
