Thanks to the publisher for the ARC <3
So I'd really been looking forward to this book for a while now the blurb just sounded so awesome! :D Didn't disappoint.
Rock N Soul is about a normal guy named Tyler who's working at a hotel where just a couple of months ago a famous rock star od'd he was the one who found the body and now he's walking in to the room for the first time since. But then he finds a ring, the ring, Chris Raiden's ring which he puts on and now he has a narcissistic ghost pestering him.
Chris Raiden didn't live the healthiest of lives what with his heavy drug abuse and pushing away his friends and family he regrets it enough to come back and haunt the poor bellboy and get him to help in making amends.
What starts with as an understandably difficult relationship soon turns into friendship as Tyler can't resist Chris's ghostly charms.
I really did have fun reading this book, Chris is a riot he's what appears to be a spoiled rock star with a dirty drug habit and dirtier sex life but really he's a guy who's in great(not physical)pain and the only way to escape is the hard drugs which end in his death. Then there's Tyler who doesn't really think much of himself, he kept a crazy girlfriend for way longer than he should have just because she occasionally put out even though she was always envisioning someone else and he's stayed at his job for ever because he's never quite found the motivation to go back to college. The two bring out the best in each other with Chris opening up about his life and learning how his coping mechanisms aren't quite the best and Tyler growing up and accepting himself.
I love a good ghost love story and I'm always curious in how the relationship between a ghost and living person will work. The ending of this one still left me with some questions but oh well, live in the present and all that I guess.

I was really excited for this book and went and preordered me a paperback and that's not something that I do lightly being that I am quite broke but I felt this book was meant to be read the old fashioned way and it did not disappoint.
I. Love. This. Book.
Gustavo Tiberius is rather weird, he reads encyclopedias before he goes to sleep, reads a motivational quote when he wakes, has a ferret named Harry S. Truman, owns a video store that hardly anyone ever comes into and has three awesome old lady biker friends who may be sisters or polyamorous lovers (he's too scared to ask). Sure he misses his dad everyday and maybe he's a bit lonely though he would never admit it but he's alright with that. Life is perfectly okay.
And then Casey Richards comes to town.
Casey is an Asexual Stoner Hipster who Instagrams everything he eats and is a sorta famous author of a popular paranormal book series that got turned into a movie, which Gus hates.
Gus has no interest in such a person.
But Gus can't deny that there's something there and somehow they end up becoming friends and oh my god maybe something more. But then Gus overhears something that makes him think that maybe being different is not as okay as he had believed and decides that if he wants Casey he has to change that.
So off Gustavo goes and "buys the internet" and starts researching how to become normal. So begins a new Gus even though the parts that Casey really loves are the un-normal ones.
Casey is a wonderful stereotypical Hipster who kept making me laugh with his hashtags and Gus, oh Gus such a precious soul who so does not need to change. Now don't get me started on the Lesbian Lovers, Sisters? Thespian riding badass old ladys, oh my god! They are a riot!
Really this book was hilarious and heart warming and proves that sex is so not the most important aspect in a relationship. And the cover? It's so minimalist and perfect and I Love it! Once again T.J. Klune delivers.

Yup still a 5.
I love this book. Love it. It's a wonderful Contemporary with double gay for you, super hot, dirty talking, sex!
Nick just got out of a long marriage that ended when his wife left him for the man she'd been cheating on him with. He's understandably depressed but hopeful for the future he has his new restaurant that's doing pretty well and he just moved in to his new home that shares a backyard with his new neighbor.
Bryce can't seem to figure himself out, it took forever for him to settle on a career path and his love life is filled with short relationships and shorter one night stands. His mother is exasperated but hopes he'll marry his girlfriend soon, only he hasn't been dating her in months just hasn't told her in fear of breaking her heart. At least his new neighbor, Nick seems to be cool. The two quickly bond over motorcycles and food. Bryce and Nick become inseparable, attached at the hip and Bryce's family suspects a little more than friendship is going on there except neither guy is gay but maybe, for each other?
Cue the smoking hot sex!
As the two fall in love they quickly realize that love isn't all they need and figuring out how to get their families to accept and believe in their relationship may be harder than they hoped.
I loved Riley Hart's book Collide but I think maybe this one is even better. I first read Crossroads right when it came out back in July and just two months later I'm reading it again! Also I love the cover, so cute and Black and White :D

I fell in love with Nash Summer’s writing when I read Maps a while back, she has such a wonderful way of bringing such amazing, colorful characters to life. And so when a saw she had an actual book not just a short story coming up I could barely contain my joy; I ended up reading it in a single sitting and I was correct in assuming it was going to be something amazing. Just like her characters Maps and Rust, Julian is an amazing unreal person bursting with personality and Scott who's internal struggle resonates with me, that struggle to be who everyone expects you to be while hiding who you really are.
In short this book is a piece of art just like Julian is and I'll continue reading anything Nash writes.
Oh, right the story is about Scott who's a modern art curator at a museum. Trapped in his own life just going through the motions and trying to be someone who his parents can be proud of and dating a nice guy because they just work. Then his carefully planned life gets shattered as does his heart when he meets the artfully broken Julian, a photographer with a ton of baggage and a troubled past and even though Scott knows that Julian doesn't fit his schedule he can't help obsessing over the beautiful boy who walks balloon toting dogs and has a different name everywhere he works who is his opposite in every way and who stole his heart the first time they met.
I love blueberries they're my favorite berry!
Thanks for the ARC Netgalley <3
Years ago Connor finally escaped the nightmare of his town and made a life for himself as a top notch photographer in New York but now he's back in town for his uncle's funeral and though he plans to sell the family's blueberry farm he pauses when he meets the beautiful tenant, Jedediah.
Jed's stuck in a closet hiding from the closed mindedness of his town and family but meeting the man who holds his future in his hands and sees through his stutter may be worth the heartbreak.
Though there's mutual attraction between them the impending selling of the blueberry farm that's Jed's life stands in between Jed and Connor's happiness. Trying for a long distance relationship is difficult and unlikely to work unless they can somehow meet in the middle.
In a town where the preacher preaches like it's the 1950's change is hard to come by.
I rather enjoyed this book it's full of my favorite fruit! I liked Jed he has such a passion for his work and hides who he is in fear of losing his family and friends. Jed's never known real love and then Connor comes to town and even though their relationship is difficult as is their situation he's finally happy. Connor is pretty cool too even though his only family hates him he doesn't let that break him and comes to reconcile with his once hated hometown for the love of the shy stuttering blueberry farmer.

This is me just quickly popping in to say that this little short story is nothing short of amazing and should most definitely be read, like right now.
Oh and it's also written for the Love is an Open Road Event and can be downloaded for free here:

So I read the first book a few days ago and i was just blown away! Ah I just love super stuff, Hero or Villain, and then Netgalley provided me with book two! Needless to say I devoured it.
In the new adventures of Edward Dingus and his not so evil Villain boyfriend "The Mad Bombardier"....
Edward's short stint at the Abattoir prison and the torture he underwent there left him with empathic projection powers kinda like that dude from twilight. After he's gotten a little control over his powers Edward with a little help from Raul(Bombardier)is trying to become a villain and for his first heist he's gonna hit his former bank hoping that familiarity will help.
Things don't go as smoothly as planned and now he's captured the attention of the big boss evil dude "Maggot" ooooh and Magget wants something from him and if Edward refuses or fails than horrible things will happen to poor Raul.
...Will Edward Dingus prevail? or is he and his bomb loving hunny about to meet a terrible end?
5 Super Stars!
I just love superhero things! This book is no exception.
A normal Joe working at a bank helps a villain who was robbing him and in return the villain sends him flowers as a thank you and invites him for coffee, all of a sudden normal Edward Dingus is dating the super villain "The Mad Bombardier" what could possibly go wrong, right?
A really fun short read. Totally recommend to anyone who loves hero stuff.

With tough negotiations ahead, he's armed with his acquisition pitch, ready to launch the deal of a lifetime. There’s just one glitch. The last thing he expects is to fall for the hot business owner he's trying to sway.
Dylan Reeves, computer science engineer and founder of the very successful social media site, Secret, is faced with a life-altering decision. A devoted family man with three kids and a wife, Dylan has been living a secret for years. Fiercely loyal to his convictions, his boundaries blur after meeting the striking owner of the corporation interested in acquiring his company. For the first time in his life, reckless desire consumes him when the gorgeous computer mogul makes an offer he can't refuse.
Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It's always a surprise to see what's coming next!
I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it's true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women's hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life - I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations - regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal... I don't want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I'm going to tell you about Kindle.
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I'll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died - weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn't have to be alone.
That time in my life was terrible. It's everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness - it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn't a time she wasn't there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It's its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn't be here today without her.

Historicals aren't usually my thing which is why even with so much of my friends loving this I'd been rather resistant to starting it and it wasn't 'till a bingo challenge on Goodreads finally pushed me into reading it.
And oh am I glad I did. This book was wildly entertaining full of magic and creepy undead monsters fun fun! Not to mention a sexy detective wooing a cute historian who speaks 13 languages and reads more. Throw in an awesome chick who knows how to wield a gun as good as any man and this book is pure magic!

Whoo! More Isaac and David! The wait felt like ages!
David and Isaac have left Zebulon and are living in Cali with Issac's brother, Arron. With Arron's help they are discovering the English ways. Issac is transitioning to the English life surprisingly well; he starts to go to school and makes new friends but David on the other hand. David is having trouble coping with this new way of life. The feeling of being useless and the guilt for having abandoned his family starts to weigh heavy and he starts coping with the stress in completely the wrong way. But at the end of the day they have each other and that's all that ever really mattered.
This book was so much fun! I loved seeing Issac and David learn about the English world it was funny at times and then at around the last couple chapters things get intense and crazy and Ohmygod is it almost April?!
note: Something I wish I had done is hold back from reading this until it was closer to the third book's release because it's just that crazy at the end but than again it would probably have been physically impossible for me to hold back anyway.

This is Tag's story. Tag is in the Belonging series and now he got his own book :D
Dr. James Taggert is having a bad night, after hearing the man who led to his sister's death has been released from prison he decides getting drunk is a great idea and when he almost does something really really bad he turns to his best friend Nathan who takes him home and comforts him. The night ends with a kiss that James forgets in the morning but that Nathan can't get out of his head.
Detective Nathan Wolf has felt something for his best friend since college but has always buried it deep and locked it tight but a single kiss frees those feelings he fears. When he confesses his feelings to James, James rejects him, not because he doesn't want him but because he never though that
Nathan, the reason he's never connected with anyone on more than a physical level, could ever want anything other than friendship with him so he pushes him away, something he couldn't regret more.
I really liked this book it had so much going on that I was never bored. Both men have their demons to slay; James is a psychiatrist with the wrong ways of handling his stress and James after getting hurt suffers from nightmares and flashbacks that endanger those around him. Both men are so messed up and at the same time trying to figure out this new relationship between them.
Sure there were a lot of untied strings left but since this is the first book in the series I'm guessing things will get solved in the next book.
ps. I love that cover!
