Reviewer: Shorty

Review: Hmm, I have to say when I first started reading this book I honestly thought the beginning was the author words and not the story so it took me by surprise to realize I was reading the actual story. Armando seemed abrasive and rude to the point of being insulting at times yet tender at others while at the same time coming off as conceited and self-absorbed.

Although I love sarcastic characters this did not strike me as sarcastic at all. I was very glad that Mads seemed to give back the abrasive behavior to Armando rather than not say anything. However if it had been me I would have walked away and never looked back.

I hate to say it but I did not enjoy this book as much as I normally would a paranormal book which shocked me. That was due to the very beginning and Armando’s dialogue. I had to force myself to read the entire book and was gritting my teeth wanting to slap Armando at times.

I’m sorry but I did not like this book, but will give it a 3 for effort.

Review: This was a really cute and tender story. There are parts of it that will have you in tears and cheering in others.

Roger is a Druid that has seen the worst in wars. He just wants to take some time to recoup. The best place was in the home of a man he had known for a while. He had not expected Ben’s son to be there and to be grown. Lynn is a gorgeous man and amazing cook. He plays Santa when needed also because as he says he doesn’t need the fake belly. He is so damn tender-hearted and full of joy.

He is also in love with Roger. They both have to learn about each other. And with Roger’s down side, he knows he needs a bit of care. Roger wants to bring some children that were orphans from the war but doesn’t expect Lynn to go all out.

He is full of joy and is falling in love.

This story is a historical one that involves children orphaned in WW2. I have never been one to read historicals but this one is special. It has a bit of humor involved in it but is mainly a serious tone. I actually loved it and look forward to reading more by S. A. Garcia.

What a wonderful story to read when you need a book to cheer you up. It shows the love two men have for children and how they want to give them a life that is so much better than back where they are from. It caught my attention from the moment

I started reading it and kept it all the way to the end. I had a blast reading it and would recommend it to everyone. It was pretty damn amazing.

Blurb: Serpent Prince Linden of Ardaul is determined to drag his barbaric, power-hungry country into the modern age by encouraging learning, advances in the sciences, and tolerance. His insane brother Edward, the King, delights in making him pay for his efforts.

Long years of watching his back, fighting wars, and solving conflicts started by his cruel brother have taken a toll on Linden’s body and mind, and he needs a respite. When Linden meets an alluring young bed slave named Alasdaire, his weary heart responds. Alasdaire is an exotic mix of southern royal Totandian elf and human, and, although he’s also suffered hardship most of his life, his loving personality captivates the Prince.

Despite their differences, Alasdaire—canes, and Linden—scales, unite in body and soul, but their romance is nearly shattered by betrayal. When Linden becomes King, magical assassins, treachery, and threats plague them. They narrowly escape death more than once. The lovers must discover who wants them dead and more importantly, where they can turn for aid. Neither enemies nor allies are what they seem. Only time will tell who means to harm Linden and Alasdaire—the elves, the imprisoned Edward, or something even deadlier—and time is one thing they don’t have.

Review: I am not too sure about this book. To me it just comes off to slow-moving. The characters are really detailed and you can’t help but fall in love with them. Linden wants to drag his power-hungry country into the modern age. To teach them about the advances in society and tolerance. However, Edward wants to make him pay for his efforts. He has always had to watch everything he says and does because his brother cruelty is causing him some major problems. He always has to watch his back and keep in mind that his brother is just plain evil.

He decides to take a little vacation where he meets a very sexy slave. Alasdaire is a gorgeous, sexy exotic man. He was born into royalty but his father was cruel and thrown him and his mother out. After watching his mother weaken and die, he decided to get even. What he had done did not in fact kill his father but injured him. His father sold him and with the agreement that he would always be a slave. Taught to be a sex slave, he was given to Linden. He is half human and half elf. Although he had a hard life and knew that, he would never be free. For the collar on him had poison and if he ever tried to leave it would kill him instantly.

Linden was a serpent Prince and even had the scales to prove it. He was attracted to Alasdaire and wanted this man with everything in his powers. Their attraction for each other builds and so does the dangers. Especially when Linden becomes King. They will do everything in their power to protect the other.

As I said this story just comes off slower than I would like. Although I do have to tell you that when Linden and Alasdaire get together their worlds heat up. You can tell there is so much passion flowing between them and the fire will warm your soul. It has a great story line and plot that will capture your attention and keep it all the way to the end. It is a fantasy story that shows you how the author has a wonderful gift at telling you a story. I love romance stories and I have not been much into fantasies, but this one is high on my list of books to add to my library.

I would recommend reading this story. It has a paranormal tone to it, fantasy that will draw you in, two very sexy men, passion that will heat your cheeks, excitement, adventure, and dangerous situations. It gives you all of that and so much more.

Blurb: Hindy Nardella, gallery owner and tidy leather diva, isn’t sure about love anymore. His most-recent ex-lover said “sayonara” and headed for Japan despite a week of Hindy begging him to stay. The man before that bid Hindy “namaste” before heading for Nepal seeking salvation. Hindy will accept advice from anywhere, even a tacky Cupid music box which only plays Cher’s “Believe,” and vivid dreams that compel him to leave NYC and head for the Adirondacks.

Cupid leads Hindy straight to a leather bar in the mountains and an exotic drag queen named Patrice O’Malley. For Patrice, whose near-perfect beauty belies his lack of confidence, its lust at first sight, but Hindy has doubts born of his recent run of bad luck in romance. But when Patrice saves Hindy from death by a falling chunk of airplane blue ice, Cupid slams into Hindy’s heart, and Hindy begins to believe in miracles again. Dangers and challenges arise, involving, among other things, crazy ex-lovers, rampaging mosquitoes, and a phantom moose. But life together waits back in NYC, if they can survive, trust in each other, and believe in life after love.

Review: Hindy hasn’t been too lucky in love. He thought things were great with Tim but then, he started noticing signs of problems. Then one day he saw a cupid in the window of a shop and thought it was giving him signs. Then the dreams started about the mountains making him want to go in the worst way.

After Tim leaves, Hindy goes on an expedition led by his dreams and the broken cupid music box that only plays Believe by Cher. His trek leads him to Patrice a lovely flamboyant drag queen that though isn’t Hindy’s usual type sweeps him off his feet and saves his life. Perhaps more than literally. You must read the book and see for yourself what all they go through it’s a laugh a minute!

This was one of those surprises that grab you and won’t let go. The title didn’t grab me, but after much deliberation and reading the description, I was like why not, sounds cute.  I am so happy I took the leap. This is now one of my favourite feel good stories. I will definitely read this one again and that’s not something I do a lot of since I have so many books on my kindle.

I love Hindy and Patrice. Both men are so out there and funny, not your run of the mill characters. Hindy is flamboyant and very and quite the Diva.  Then in waltz’s Patrice, a drag queen, even more flamboyant than Hindy. The two men were a match made in heaven, though getting there is not that simple. Both men have had bad relationships and problems that come up throwing obstacles in their paths.

I thought the cupid thing was so hilarious. The entire story was funny, sweet sexy and feel-good. I laughed so much I thought I’d cry. I loved Marcel and Carl too. I loved everything about this story. I will be buying Cupid Knows Best, the book this spun off, very soon!

If you like, drag queens, divas, funny, feel-good stories, sweet sensuous and pretty hot mansex and of course, Cupid and Cher this is definitely for you! If you want a story to make you laugh and smile and sigh, to get away from the turmoil’s of real life this is it.

Review: Fabion lives in the thirty-ninth century. The world is a foul place, with toxic seas, smoggy air and a dying land.   The elves are a protected species. Fabion lives the life of a supermodel that is dragged kicking and screaming to the nineteenth century to help save the planet and the Elf King Henda.

Well. Damn, this is a funny, chuckle worthy, giggle making story, which was a pure joy to read. Henda lost his love Fabion and is now fading, as a last ditch attempt to save him, Matradorian (Mattie) travels through time to find Henda’s perfect soul mate and reunite them. But, what he finds is so not what he would have imagined. Fabion is a supermodel elf who is adored by millions and wanted by all, his beauty is breath-taking and he has an ENORMOUS ego. When he is dragged back in time to change history, he takes all his uncouth ways with him… including hand gestures, curses and insults, along with a diva temperament… and may the White Gods have mercy on them all. Now they have to discover who put the spell on the original Fabion, and work together to bring a better future for them all.

This is a funny loveable story and I found these characters to be loveable and thoroughly enjoyable as they bantered about. The storyline was quite good, although, it was a bit anti-climactic at the end as I expected something more explosive. Fabion is a character like no other… he is just too much diva to be true and has some wicked thoughts. I found his reaction to landing in the nineteenth century quite funny, especially when he realizes he has been conned and is now stuck. I also thought that the way he reacted to Henda was sweet, but, damn he really is a diva.

There is a lot for Fabion to come to terms with, and a lot of maneuvering for him to do as he slots into the previous Fabion’s life. He also has to deal with their souls merging, as he experiences some of the old Fabion’s memories and feelings. The elves in the nineteenth century accept the new Fabion as the old Fabion, although they all realize he is a different Fabion… seriously, if you want to truly understand you have to read the book. There are several really funny bits and a lot of sex going on (which is really hot). We also see Fabion drunk, drinking elves under the table, teaching them new insults, but also bringing life and joy into the family. He has an interesting way of phrasing things and it livens up the story no end.

So, if you enjoy fantasy, comedy, time-travel, hot sex, hunky elves, a mystery, saving the world, lots of chuckling and giggling and a happy ever blissful after with lots of sex, then this is the book for you and I highly recommend it for a fun filled afternoon.

Blurb: In a world destroyed by nuclear mismanagement, a deformed young man named Trill finds an intact Netpad. Once he secures a working battery, he discovers a story penned by Sam Devine, a hacker who led a rebellion against the insane corporation BCM thirty years before.

Sam works for BCM out of necessity rather than choice. He despises the company for its lack of ethics and knows the best way to destroy it is from within. When a staff meeting opens with the torture of BCM’s captive enemies, Sam sees his chance: he lies to convince his bosses he wants to further degrade one of the warriors, a man named Pokatawer, and once Pokatawer is released to him, Sam finds they share common goals and lusts.

But Sam and Pokatawer are up against a hugely powerful corporation, and they’ll have to bring BCM to its knees to escape nuclear wrath and make a life for themselves somewhere outside the company’s grasp.

Review: This is one of those stories that send shivers up your spine as you realize that something like this could truly happen.  That a corporation could be running the Government and wipe out those who don’t agree.

Trill is one of those in the future who are living with the effects of a corporate takeover of a Government.  When he finds a Netpad; he hopes to read the words of a hero… one of the people who left for the south for a new beginning. Sam Devine had hoped to bring BCM down but was betrayed.  Now he is more like their dog; doing what they want so he can live.  When they bring in prisoners trying to get their secrets, he devises a plan to rescue one of them. Pokatawer was captured on his way home.  BCM want the drug that his people have developed, but he has other plans once he is given the chance by Devine.

A really great story that wasn’t lacking in detail or action.   It wove a very realistic view of a future that is on the brink of destruction; as a corporate America fights amongst itself vying for more land and using any means necessary to obtain it. Brilliant. The characters were well written and the story is very well told. The relationship that develops between Devine and Pokatawer is interesting and I really loved Devine’s character as he added a bit of humor to a decidedly unpleasant world. The chemistry between them was sparking and although we don’t get much detail they are still very hot and primal together.

So honestly,  this is for those who love Science Fiction, Futuristic and Post-Apocalyptic stories.  Divine Devine’s Love Song will blow your mind with detail, evil corporate types and a great love story with an ending that makes you long for a sequel.
