Monday Mentions

Use Grammarly’s plagiarism checker because copy-cats are not nearly as cute as the original!

I admit it . . . despite all the snow days, I’ve been slacking on writing book reviews and reporting on my favorite reads from 2013. I am happy to say, Netflix has lost its grip on my attention, and I am back to reading. I just finished Fish & Chips, book #3 in the Cut & Run series (m-m romance). I am thoroughly enamored with Zane and Ty. Yeah, it’s only taken three books to get me there!! I am very excited to start book #4, Divide and Conquer.

Oops, got sidetracked! So, Monday Mentions . . . I thought I would mention some of my favorite M-M reads of late and give some recommendations. After all, it is yet another snow day in Maryland – yay! – and you might need some hot, sexy, and potentially troubled guys to read to take your mind off all of the white stuff!

Here goes:

  • I’m not going to rehash the Hell or High Water series here, given my recent posts on it, but S.E. Jakes has done an incredible job with Prophet and Tom. They are one of my favorite m-m couples. Dark_Soul_Vol5
  • The Dark Soul series by Aleksandr Voinov. Volume 5 was my favorite of the series. You must check out Stefano and Silvio. An intense, well-written, gripping series. I was very sad when the series ended.
  • The Brooklyn Sinners series by Avril Ashton. Syren’s book (well, Kane’s too), A Sinner Born, earned 4.5 stars from me. Overall, a series filled with flawed but extremely loveable characters who have to make tough choices.
  • The Blind Faith series by N.R. Walker. Blindside, Mark and Will’s story, had me laughing and crying – and totally hooked. I pretty much read this one in a day. Isaac and Carter made a number of appearances, which thrilled me to no end!
  • The Afflicted series by Brandon Shire features Hunter, a blind man, and Dillon, a male escort. A touching series that draws you into the lives of the two men. The guys connected in more than just the bedroom; although that was pretty steamy and enjoyable!!
  • Really liked A Rookie Move by Sam B. Morgan. Mike, Mr. Tough and In-A_Rookie_MoveControl, and Nathan, Mr. Smarty Quick Thinker, were great characters with tons of chemistry. Add an intense police setting with lots of action – you won’t want to miss this one!
  • Last, but not least, Still by Mary Calmes. I’m a big fan of hers, and Siv and Walter held my attention in this one. Definitely some angst as the couple, who been together for seventeen years, split and only then begin to realize what they had.

Hopefully one of these mentions will spark your interest and get you reading on a snowy February day. Well, if you’re lucky enough to live in a warm, beach-like climate, you can still check one of these out while soaking in some of the sun’s rays! Either way, enjoy!
