Review: This is an anthology and a bit of a bizarre one at that. It gives you ninja’s and hell folk all the way around. I was quite surprised by it but it was missing quite a bit for me to truly love. I love the authors imagination and gift at telling a story. It is pretty amazing, but not enough to make me want to read it again. I will tell you though it kept me laughing through the whole book, which gives it higher points all together. I love the characters you can’t help but fall in love with them. It will catch your attention and keep it all the way to end.
Clean Up On Aisle Me ♥♥♥3Hearts
Jonny’s mundane life gets a stealth makeover when he discovers a band of ninjas fighting off hell spawn in the party store where he works. After a close encounter of the super-gross kind, Jonny and his ninja mentor, Bert, have an encounter of their own, this one much hotter. Jonny’s on board for joining the merry band of good guys in black—and for taking things further with Bert—but first he’ll need to prove he’s up for both tasks.

They go after phantasms, incubi, imps and even wendigo’s but Jonny seems to be going after Bert. This was funny and incredibly weird. One minute he is griping about having to work and the next he is seeing ninja’s.
It is a cute little story, but like I said weird. It is part of this strange but exciting anthology. I would recommend it for the laughs alone. Shae will give you some good stories if this one is anything to go by. A great imagination and a gift for telling a story.

Sheathing His Sword ♥♥2Hearts
It is porno time with two hot and sexy men, lots of sex and ok they never actually get to the sex part because the one who wrote the story never told his family and friends that he makes gay porn or the fact that he is gay.

Aiden and Nicky were supposed to be making a porn about a man in the kitchen getting a big surprise from a ninja breaking into his apartment. Only there is a bit of surprises to both. Well one is the father of course, but then there is this plant on the windowsill that he wasn’t expecting.

I am not sure what to say about this story other than the fact that it was funny as hell. I couldn’t even get any air in my lungs because I was too busy laughing at it. It is a cute little story that when you want a humorous story or need one this is the one to pick.

Twink Ninja Tiger, Flaxen Buns of Fury ♥♥2Hearts
Ok the first two stories in this anthology were funny but this one took the top. I mean at first it seems like it is a group of men swearing chastity, studding the ways of life and being monks, but it is a bunch of guys trying to be ninja’s. Butt Ninjas to be truthful.

“We mean no disrespect,” Master Beard attempted to put the man at ease. “We were simply expecting Father Leviticus, who’s been visiting us regularly for the past several decades, and you took us by surprise. Word is typically sent to us if there’s been a change, even a temporary one.” “This was rather sudden,” the figure explained. “Father Leviticus ate some bad shellfish and is attempting to maintain cleanliness.” “Through prayer and water?” “Mostly with Depends. Anyway, rather than get everybody’s frock and habit in a twist upstairs, he asked if I’d fill in for him since he’s been training me for it anyway. In essence, I’m the emissary for the emissary.” “I’m not entirely sure what that makes you.” “Think of me as Emissary Lite or a cousin by marriage once removed who married one of his brothers or sisters, only in a God-like way, not the Southern Baptist way, but just until I complete my training. Now—” He turned and looked around at the large welcome room, searching for anything that would indicate where the interior doors on the other side led. “Is there somewhere I can freshen up and make myself adorably cute again? I also have to drain my main boy box like there’s no mañana.”

Ashton is an emissary sent to them to study and teach, however everything that comes out of his mouth is very sexual even though it isn’t meant to. Ky is close to the end of his training, but when they are all in the bath water and Ashton is talking about daddies, sexual positions and being a virgin, well let’s just say that night he was not any longer and neither was the head of the place.
It is a funny little story but weird as can be. I am not too sure what else to say about this book, but if you want a short story that will cheer you up then this is the book to pick up.

Twerk It ♥♥♥3Hearts
What happens when a demon slayer goes hunting in Hell? Twerk it, baby.

L’lousche is a minor sex demon with short-shorts, tall boots, a Hell Kitty t-shirt, and a magic backside. When he shakes that ass, no soul in Hell or on Earth can resist the urge to sin. Not even the demon slayer who’s supposed to kill him.
Well this was one of the better stories in this book. I mean it was still funny but it had just a bit of danger to it. A major demon gets caught by a minor sex demon, gets paranoid that Satan will find out so he wants to take out the sex demon. So he hires Hugo who happens to be a demon slayer to kill L’lousche. Only Hugo see’s Llousche and wants him for his own. Now to kill the one who hired him to kill the other.
This is a cool story, better if it had been longer with more detail. It would have made an excellent novella or even a novel if it had been in more detail. It was good and I think that once you start reading it you will want to read the rest of the book.

Hell Is Where the Heart Is ♥♥♥♥3.5Hearts
All he wanted was Diomede but Diomede didn’t want him. Or that was what he was told by his mother Big Deal of the Sixth Level of Hell. However, that was not the truth in fact Diomede had been told by his mother Big Deal of the Fifth Level of Hell and Noorvik’s mother.
Noorviks mother had told him it was time for grandbabies and that he was to have a mate. She started bringing out female demons but all he wanted to do was scream that he was gay. So with the help of a friend he attends a party to find a human male. What he had not expected was Dillon was in fact Diomede.

This was a better story then the others. It actually gives you something to grab on to. It gives you two sexy men or should I say demons that want each other. The problem was each time they had gotten together in the past they ended up with earthquakes, hurricanes, and other natural disasters. It is an awesome story.

Ninja, Vanish ♥♥2Hearts
Dallas, Marc, Alec, and Colt were actors. Very bored actors who did rainbow ninja’s shows on Saturday for the kiddies. Now they would do anything to get a real acting job. Although I doubt they meant to work for Hell.

Colt signed the contract that Asmodeus shows him. He works for Hell for one year to show the people who hell is where the action is. It wasn’t till the end that he finds out who not only he is working as, but also it had turned out so were his friends. Now they just have to figure out how to turn it all around.

This was one of the stranger stories, but not as bad as one expects. It has a cool plot to it, but is still very strange. It will definitely have you on the edge of your seat laughing your ass off with it though.

The Soldier and the Vagabond ♥♥♥♥3.5Hearts
This was one of the cuter stories. Kioshi was the vagabond and all he had wanted was food. He was starving so one day he had coned the owner of the store to go look at some other food for him when he had stolen two apples. He had thought he had got away when a soldier caught him. He knew that in Japan the price of stealing is the loss of a hand. He had to get this soldier to spare him.

Tamotsu was a Genin Soldier to Shonin Momochi Sandayu. This is a mercenary for the Shonin. He had stopped the young thief only to find himself wanting this man for his own. He paid the merchant for the apples and let Kioshi go. Kioshi had been attracted once more by a bully. Tamotsu saved him again and then when Kioshi looked for him, he had found himself in a little bit of trouble. Tamotsu wanted him for the rest of his life.

This story is better than a few of the others, because it actually gives you a story line that you can follow and characters that will charm you. It is cute and it will keep your attention through it all. I wished it were longer because it would have made a great long read.

A Ninja Walks Into A Bar ♥♥♥♥3.5Hearts
Nikita sends Akira to bring Delos to hell. He was to do a test but either way he was not going back home. What Nikita had not realized was that Delos, also known as Dallas was actually neutral. He would never choose evil or good. Akira who is also known as Ki wants Dallas for the rest of his life but he knew that Dallas would not survive. He was to die at the hands of Nikita.

Nikita is actually Dallas father and a lord from Hell. He wants his son killed before he takes over the reins. Ki will do everything in his power to help Dallas, but he was not as strong as his lord. He was a demon ninja.

This story has way too many characters to try to figure out. It is a good story but bizarre. I think that had it been an actual novel it would get high points. It has all the major points that brings a story to an amazing end. It gives you sexy men, hot sex. There is a kink factor, danger, excitement and a bit of adventure in it.

Reviewer: GiGi

Review: I’ve got to say K.J. Charles is quickly becoming one of my top five favorite authors of the mystery and m/m genre. I can really sink my teeth into her characters, and she illustrates her worlds with words so well that I can feel, smell and nearly tough the settings her stories are part of. And while I’ve read some of her longer novellas, Charles is queen of the short story. The plots feel complete, yet leave me hungry for more, more… more!

I admit I read this series in an odd order, starting with Remnant and then picking up with Caldwell Ghost and then Butterflies. But I decided to read the earlier installments because I was fixated with the character of Simon Feximal. He’s disturbed, obviously haunted by a dark past, inked with powers of sorcery, and his dominant streak….oh hells yeah that’s frickin’ hot!

The interesting twists this ghost haunting takes had been quickly planted and the seeds grew into something wickedly sexy, if not a bit multi-generationally incestual. But hey, kissing cousins and all that.

Robert Caldwell seems to be a perfect foil for Simon Feximal and I can’t wait to read more about this adventurous, mystery solving couple.

Blurb: Born with a gift for sensing plants that leaves him tied to his citrus farm, Andy has despaired of having anything but an isolated existence with his overbearing mother. When handsome Enrique arrives looking for work, Andy dares to dream of a different, happier life-one, which includes Enrique in his bed.

Half-incubus Enrique doesn’t expect to fall for the lonely and virginal Andy. Neither does he intend to submit to Andy’s repeated attempts at seduction, but Andy’s fine young body proves so irresistible that Enrique gives him a birthday present neither will forget.

When hunters from Enrique’s past lay waste to the farm, leaving Andy critically ill, Enrique must find a means to help and heal him which comes in the form of Andy’s long-lost family. But can Andy accept Enrique’s terrible secrets and can they–and their love–survive the monsters set on tearing Enrique and his life apart?

Reviewer: GiGi

Review: An interesting and dare I say unique twist to paranormal! I’ve read plenty of empath, and incubus scenarios, but the writing and storyline in Passage is refreshing and engrossing! Evey had me captured from the first pages, and I read through the night until the very end.

The way the history of Andy’s life develops, I both love and hate his mother. I admire her courage and detest her fears and prejudices. It’s very rare when a true love hate relationship develops with a character.

The paranormal twists are interesting. I had not read Capriole and Lavade prior to this book, and I’m not sure why this isn’t listed as a continuation of that series. It most certainly is. I felt the history and the missing pieces in the very first chapter. Yet this book stands alone quite nicely. Not having read the two previous books kept this story and its plot more of a surprise for me. Otherwise, I would have made the connection between the conditions of Andy’s birth with his missing/dead father much faster.

Andy has many layers. At times, I feel he’s selfish and very naïve in a youthful way, other times I forgive those flaws because of how isolated and troubled he is by hiding his secrets. He needs some maturity under his belt, but he’s got the bones to be a very strong and deep character.

Enrique is such a tortured character. He’s on the run from extreme abuse, from his brother who sacrificed his humanity to save him, from the killers who held him captive, and from his own demons. He knows what he is, and does not want to subject Andy to his demon side, yet Andy does everything humanly possible to tempt him.

Just a fair warning, there is extreme violence, and plenty of heartbreak, but everything comes full circle in the end. The story ends perfectly set up to continue with Enrique’s brother’s journey. So I look forward to the next book, and I’m excited to go back and read Capriole and Lavade to pull all of the puzzle pieces together.

Blurb: It seemed like a great idea at the time… Aussie Dave Taylor has followed Nicholas Goring to England, and the lovers have become engaged. But now Dave has to cope with living in a mansion full of family and servants, making wedding plans, getting his head around visa applications, and wondering why on earth he’d ever want to wear a ‘mourning suit’. He’s not sure if it will prove any easier, but right now Dave would love to just skip ahead to the honeymoon…

Review: This is book two of the Butterfly Hunter Series. I think you should read them in order. I haven’t read the first and wish I had. I would have liked to known how Dave and Nicholas met and I think it would have answered a few questions I had. However, I don’t think it hurt my view of the book.

I think the story is very good. I loved both Nicholas and Dave. The story was one of the most beautiful love stories I have read in a while. I love the descriptions of the places they visit, I felt as if I were there.

There is a touch of mystery mixed in that added a bit of excitement to the story. I found the end a bit abrupt, but I am hoping for another book. I would have liked something at the end to let me know there is more in this series coming.

If you like sweet, sensual, emotional romances, sexy Australians, hot English dignitaries, butterflies, beautiful scenery, and a little very sensual, loving mansex, same-sex weddings and happy for now endings, this is for you.

Lisa’s Review: ♥♥♥2.5Hearts

This was a bizarre story, but kind of cute. It gives you twins that are not actually twins. I mean, they are not brothers, they just looked alike. Everywhere one went the other had been and people would make comments that led them to wondering what was going on. Every time Blayne went somewhere someone would comment, he would tell them that they are either completely lost their minds or he was beginning to.

Blayne finally spots his look alike in a gay bar. However, his best friend Doug distracted him so much that he lost him in the crowd. Doug vows to make it up to him, and the fact that he wants to know the answer to. He also wants to know if Cary looked identical to Blayne naked as well as when he is dressed.

Cary had been involved with Landon. However, he wanted something that Landon had not been able to give. He wanted something that would last. He wanted a partner for life. What he does not expect was to find the one man that looks just like him. Enough to find out if they were alike in other ways.

It was a cute story but strange as all get out. I am not really sure what to say about it. I did actually like it but not enough to want to read it again. It gives you something to think about though. I mean to hot and sexy men getting all bothered when they are together makes for a hot affair. It did leave me hanging at the end though and that I cannot get into. I want a story that has an actual story line that goes further into details. However if you want a story that will give you a humorous side to it. It will keep you laughing at the antic’s to find out who the other is.

 

Tams Review: ♥ 1 Heart

Blayne Carter goes to pick up his morning coffee and is slightly dumbfounded with the server makes a comment about him just being there. Again, when he takes an empty seat next to another customer, she questions why he’s back so soon. All over town it keeps happening, he’s baffled. Then at the bar, he quite literally runs into a man who could be his twin. It takes several days but then a phone call and an agreement to meet up at a local coffee shop, Blayne and Cary finally come face to face.

It’s like looking into a mirror for them and since they are both gay they decide to find out if the similarities are from head… to toe.
This story had a lot of potential at the start. Two men who look so much alike everyone that meets them thinks they are twins, or in fact the same person. But it was so choppy and mismanaged that the idea never quite took hold. The dialogue between Blayne and Cary was that of two teenage boys about to experience their first sexual encounter. Not that of two grown, successful and always gay men that are not virgins. It just wasn’t cohesive, believable or engaging.

I really wanted to like this book, I have an indecent fascination with twin stories, and this one did not hit the mark though.

Double Alchemy: Climax

(Double Alchemy Book #2)

by

 Susan Mac Nicol

Powerful modern warlock Quinn Fairmont found ecstasy with the silver-eyed and not-quite-human Cade Mairston, but to know true happiness the pair must best both the shadow of a long-ago lover and an ancient enemy who seeks to destroy love, light and all they hold dear.

A BLINDING LIGHT

It begins with a Book of Shadows discovered by a London coven. The grimoire is as dangerous as it is rare, which is why it evokes modern-day warlock Quinn Fairmont’s desire. He collects objects of great power and beauty—like his lover, Cade Mairston.

Against all odds he and Cade found each other, but their perils have just begun. First is the ex-lover who once held Quinn in thrall. And, someone has been killing warlocks. Could it be one of his own kind? There are those too who would challenge Quinn’s power in their quest to overthrow him as Grand Master. Or is the danger something darker, something invoked inadvertently, rising from the shadows, building from the very inside of a man until it brings an end with a quick flash of light? Of the truth, the surface has only been scratched. Now Quinn and Cade must go deeper and find both answers and an end. They must learn what lurks in the hearts of men…and whether it seeks to love or destroy.
