Blurb: What to expect when your pet rat is expecting, or how to fall in love at a pet show.

Jamie Hewett rescues and breeds prize-winning fancy rats. While he’s surrounded by supportive, animal-loving friends, his ex-boyfriend has never been one of them. One embarrassing breakup later, he definitely isn’t looking for love again, but perhaps a rebound relationship might ease his broken heart.

Liam Donnelly’s quirky dating life is the subject of a popular vlog, and his viewers have interesting ideas on where he might find romance. When they suggest he take Mabel, his new rat, to a pet show, he’s up for the adventure.

Although they can’t deny their growing interest in each other, neither Jamie nor Liam believes in love at first sight. They’ve both had bad luck with men, and Jamie isn’t pleased that Liam makes a living as a serial dater. On top of that, others are conspiring to keep them apart, and Jamie is left holding the baby—or twenty-plus babies—when their fur children have no trouble making a connection. Will a YouTube ukulele serenade convince Liam that Jamie’s love for him—and their unborn rat children—is for real?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Liam is a serial dater and has no regrets about it. However his crazy family won’t let him bring a date to a wedding unless he is serious. So he sets out to find someone to take. On the side he is a pretty good Vlogger and has fun with it. They suggest where he goes to meet dates and he actually listens every once in awhile.

Jamie has an idiot for a boyfriend but not for long. Here is a man that loves rats, all kinds of rats. He breeds them and even rescues them. After his ex breaks up with him he is not sure he wants to try again. So when he meets Liam things might just heat up, but is it real or just rebound, we will soon see.

This story was very long with quite a bit of information that was not really needed. It felt drawn out and just a bit dry. The topic was very interesting and I did like part of the story. However it was so drawn out that I pretty much skipped parts of the story just to get to the interesting parts. There were a few minor problems in editing but not enough to really take away from the story itself.

The beginning of the story caught my attention which was a plus but didn’t keep it which was not a plus. Overall the story was pretty good and showed great potential. I didn’t really connect with the guys like I would have liked to but it was a good start to a new to me author.

Digging Deep

(Digging Deep 01 / Perchance to Dream)
by

Jay Hogan

A Digging Deep Story

Drake Park has a complicated life. As a gay male midwife, he’s used to raising eyebrows. Add Crohn’s disease and things get interesting—or not, considering the sad state of his love life. Experience has taught Drake that most men are fair-weather sailors when it comes to handling his condition—gone for dust when things get rough. Staying healthy is a full-time job without adding in any heartbreak, so a little loneliness is a small price to pay. If he says it often enough he might even believe it. One thing for sure, the cop who arrested him isn’t about to change that.

Caleb Ashton does not have a complicated life. A senior detective with the Whangarei Police Department, he likes his job and is good at it. He works hard and plays hard, happy to enjoy as many men as he can while he’s still young enough—or at least he was. These days he feels adrift for the first time in his life, and the only thing sparking his interest—a certain prickly young midwife.

But can Drake find enough faith to risk opening his heart again? And does Caleb have what it takes to cope with the challenges Drake’s condition presents?

by

Jaime Samms

When Sunny retires to the northern Ontario wilderness to mourn his parents’ deaths, he’s hoping the change of scenery will afford him some peace and quiet.

His hopes are soon spectacularly dashed.

In self-imposed exile, dragon Emile runs across the Fold between his dimension and Sunny’s—and right into Sunny’s arms. Centuries out of touch with human culture, bright, beautiful Emile incinerates any hope Sunny had for an ordinary existence. With dryads and water sprites coming to life all around them, Sunny can’t deny the magic Emile brings to his life—or his heart. But that same magic leads the unrelenting dragon who would keep Emile captive right to them. To save his love, Sunny will have to reach deep and find some magic of his own.

London Lads Anthology

by

Clare London

A young man uses social media to contact the men he knew as teenaged friends and discovers a soul mate for his own romantic journey. The most ill-matched couple you could ever imagine are thrown together when they exchange flat-sitting—and turn each other’s lives upside down. A reserved young man struggles with a secret affair until he dares to take the adventurous step of making his heart’s wish public. One mischievous night on a shopping mall security camera brings an astonishing blind date for a bored student. A frustrating delay in an airport lounge—with only two precocious children for company—drives a young man to confess he’s in love with his best friend.

Five standalone stories, five romantic couples seeking a happy ever after. This collection of stories includes humor, reflection, erotic desire, and sweet devotion. It celebrates the diversity and delight of lovers against the backdrop of London’s vibrant and lively city—young “London lads” whose love, determination, and sense of adventure are strong enough to find the way to a partner’s heart.

Blurb: Garry’s at the end of his tether. He’s waiting at Glasgow Airport to meet his friend Will, on their way to a holiday in a Scottish Highlands hotel. Now there’s a ten-hour delay to incoming flights, the seat in the lounge is more like an instrument of torture, and he’s beyond tired of airport food.

He’s also dreading having to apologise for the pass he recently made at Will, his colleague at a London bank, under the influence of too many beers and a long-held crush. Now Will’s been offered a new job offer on a continent thousands of miles away, Garry realises it may be the end of their close friendship—let alone anything more.

To add to Garry’s stress, he’s treated to the company of Emily and Max, two young people who think he needs educating in the ways of the world. Struggling with their well-meaning help and the startling mess from spilled ketchup and noxious-smelling sweets, he’s encouraged to re-examine how he feels about Will and to decide what kind of journey he’d really like them to take together.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Each book in the London Lads collection features a new romantic couple. To enjoy the overall story arc and crossover characters, I would recommend reading the series in sequential order.

Garry and Will have been friends for quite sometime, but Garry wants more. He is about to get the help of two darling angels, he never expected. I would love to go on about this story, but guess you should read it. Don’t want to give to much of it away.

It is a very sweet little love story that will brighten your day. I just wished it had not been so short, because I would have loved to see Garry’s expression at the end. It was funny as hell and entertained me quite a bit. I would definitely recommend this book. It is perfect for a short little break in life.

Blurb: Ever wanted to spy secretly on other people’s lives? 

Ken doesn’t have a choice: his student summer job is manning the CCTV screens for the new central London shopping mall. But instead of spotting criminals or vandals, he becomes fascinated by a cute waiter from the local bistro who sneaks out to the backyard for his break—and plays sexy to the camera. 

Is he an old friend, or just an anonymous exhibitionist? Should Ken be excited by this naughty peepshow, or will people think he’s a voyeuristic pervert? Poor Ken’s confused and thrilled in turn. It’s like living in one of the movies he’s studying at university. He knows the man can’t see him, yet Ken feels a connection of some kind. It all encourages Ken to continue with his guilt-ridden Waiter Watch. 

Ken bears the suspense as long as he can, until a chance meeting and an abortive blind date provide the explanation to the secret assignations. But will this guide Ken to a real-life chance of romance?

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Ken sits back and watches the camera wishing for some action.  Something to help him get through each day at work.  Well he gets more then he bargains for, when a sexy waiter keeps putting on a show for him.  

This is a cute little story that makes for a nice hot read.  However for me, it is just a very short story that gives just a taste of what could be.  In a way it is a slow telling story, but for this story it could also be said to be fast paced.  I am afraid that for me, it just seemed to be too slow. The name of the book is actually right on and makes it funny as hell.  I enjoyed reading it, but wished it was a longer book with a bit more to it.  Other than my issues it is well told, pretty detailed and is a pretty good story. 

 I would recommend it to those who love a long time love story that neither party knew they had.  I will let you figure that one out on your own.

Reviewer: Pixie

Blurb: Most people think riot squad officer Taylor Jameson is an asshole. Little do they know his apparent indifference stems from having a meddlesome family always butting into his business. And little does Taylor know he’s about to stumble into a situation that’ll make indifference impossible.

When everything goes horribly wrong at a political rally on a harbour ferry, Taylor encounters Sietta Salisbury. The son of a wealthy politician, Sietta is a revered—but presumed dead—musician, and an enigma who is so strange, Taylor is compelled to look into his background. What he discovers draws him into a bizarre mess of prisoners, politics, and attempted murder that makes him realise what he’s been missing.

Falling in love isn’t hard. Trying to convince someone else you’re worth loving despite your crazy family and the people trying to kill you? That’s a whole other can of worms.

Review: Taylor is a riot squad officer, he’s a hardass and most people say an asshole but he doesn’t care, he’s got a crazy family, his work is dangerous and he hasn’t got time for the niceties in life but the second he lays eyes on Sietta he knows he’s found the one for him… if only people would stop shooting at him.

Sietta has had a shitty life, the only person he cares about is his younger brother and he’s willing to put his life on the line to protect him, meeting Taylor is a turning point in his life and he plans on grabbing hold and never letting go, and as for Taylor’s crazy family well Sietta fits in just fine.

This is a fantastic story that I had an absolute blast reading, the storyline is a little outlandish but it’s a fantastic read. Both Taylor and Sietta are fabulous characters, Taylor’s grown up in a loving close knit family even though he feels a little stifled at times he loves them all to death, Sietta is someone we want to coddle and protect Sietta’s family is best left not talked about other than his little brother Micah (because I’m not giving anything away about the storyline), Sietta adores Micah and goes through hell to protect him, Sietta isn’t the type of person you want to cross his revenge is thought out, well planned and perfectly executed.

The one thing I will tell you is that this is an action packed, humor filled story, I laughed my ass off reading it. I have to caution you as well, there are some touchy subjects touched on with Sietta but Lindsey Black has done an amazing job of redirecting our attention with humor and crazy characters. The author doesn’t make light of the situation but she does lift it up so there’s a light-heartedness to the story.

Did you know this is Lindsey Black’s debut story? Well it shocked the hell out of me that she wrote something this fantastic the first time out, this is a brilliant story that is well written, fully fleshed out, interesting and grabs your attention from the first page.

I recommend this to those who love stories that are funny and humor filled, that adores action and danger, who love an interesting storyline and a fabulous love story that makes you giggle in glee.

Blurb: When Patrick’s long-term girlfriend Li Ling dumps him just as he’s working up the nerve to propose, he ends up drunk on David’s couch—and later in David’s bed. Although initially reluctant to pursue anything beyond a one-time drunken tryst, David throws caution to the wind during an intimate dinner, where the two men also discuss Patrick’s dream of entering the food industry. Just as the friends-turned-lovers are settling into their new romance, Li Ling calls Patrick—she’s pregnant.

Convinced the announcement spells the end of their love affair and a return to their platonic friendship, David flees to Sydney to escape his heartbreak. But upon his return to Melbourne, David discovers the situation hasn’t gone the way he’d expected. There might still be a chance for David and Patrick’s dreams to come true if they can forgive each other’s mistakes and move forward.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review:  Matthew Lang is a new author for me but when I first saw the title, I just knew I had to read it.  Let’s face it everything is better with bacon, so how could this story go wrong.  The characters are very quirky and gave me a good surprise.  At first I wasn’t too sure, because Patrick had been in a relationship since high school with a girl.  However it came to my attention that this guy is kinky.

Patrick’s long term girlfriend Li dumped his ass, so he heads to his best friend’s home to get over it.  However after a few drinks Patrick lets it slip that he has always wondered what it would be like to be with a guy.  Then around valentine’s Li Ling calls to say she is pregnant.  Well poor David runs for the hills, well he actually went to Australia but close enough.  Then he comes home, and well you are just going to have to read the book to find out what happens.  

This story has a serious tone to it, but damn if there were not areas that had me laughing my ass off.  I didn’t much care for a certain part of it, but I don’t want to ruin the story or the surprise.  Trust me you are going to have a blast with this story. 

I definitely recommend this book to everyone.  It was fun to read and I can’t wait to see what other books this author has out.

(Perchance to Dream 07)
by

Marek Moran

Aaron’s been living in what his friend Howie calls a sexual desert. But an oasis appears on the horizon when Paul, a divorced electrician with a five-year-old daughter named Sam, moves in next door. He’s a country boy from northern Australia, and although he’s never been with a guy before, he has an impression that anything goes in the city. They find that the ordinary things in life—books, footie in the park, looking after Sam—lead them into an unlikely relationship.

But as their relationship slowly deepens, with Aaron spending time on Paul’s family’s cattle station, it becomes clear that Paul might have a harder time leaving the country behind. To him, happiness means a conventional life—including a mother for Sam. Being with his old friends convinces him he’s on the wrong path with Aaron, and he starts a relationship with a girl from his hometown. If he cannot find the courage to go after what he truly needs, he and Aaron will become nothing more than awkward neighbours.

How The Other Half Lives

(Perchance to Dream 05 / London Lads 02)
by

Clare London

Compulsively neat freak meets chaotic slob: can their living space survive the conflict?

Martin Harrison keeps himself to himself and his Central London flat as neat as a new pin. Maybe he should loosen up and enjoy more of a social life, but in his mind, that’s tantamount to opening the floodgates to emotional chaos. He agrees, however, to join the flat-sitting scheme in his building and look after another tenant’s flat in exchange for a similar watch over his when he’s travelling for his work.

A floor away in the same building, Russ McNeely is happy with his life as a freelance cook and a self-confessed domestic slob. He also joins the flat-sitting scheme, both to be neighbourly and to help keep his flat in order, as Russ also travels for his work.

For a while, the very dissimilar men never meet. Martin is horrified at the mess at Russ’s flat, while Russ finds Martin’s minimalist style creepy. But in a spirit of generosity, each of them starts to help the other out by rearranging things in their own inimitable way.

Until the day a hiccup in the schedule brings them face-to-face at last.

First Edition published by Amber Quill Press/Amber Allure, 2011.

Better With Bacon

(Perchance to Dream 06)
by

Matthew Lang

When Patrick’s long-term girlfriend Li Ling dumps him just as he’s working up the nerve to propose, he ends up drunk on David’s couch—and later in David’s bed. Although initially reluctant to pursue anything beyond a one-time drunken tryst, David throws caution to the wind during an intimate dinner, where the two men also discuss Patrick’s dream of entering the food industry. Just as the friends-turned-lovers are settling into their new romance, Li Ling calls Patrick—she’s pregnant.

Convinced the announcement spells the end of their love affair and a return to their platonic friendship, David flees to Sydney to escape his heartbreak. But upon his return to Melbourne, David discovers the situation hasn’t gone the way he’d expected. There might still be a chance for David and Patrick’s dreams to come true if they can forgive each other’s mistakes and move forward.
