Just Like That (Albin Academy #1) by Cole McCade

He loved this difficult, strange man of subtle whims and irascible tempers, this quiet creature who tried to be a statue of graven stone but was instead all steel and sharp edges, and every time Summer’s heart bled with the cuts it only filled that much deeper with the slow-growing love he hadn’t even realized was creeping up on him with every day, every kiss that made him hope more and more that Fox could ever…Could ever feel something for him

Cole McCade is one of my favorite authors, and I always wait with bated breath for the next release of his ongoing thriller series “Criminal Intentions.” So when I realized that he had recently started off with another book series, I knew that I had to read the book. I was equal parts excited and anxious. I was excited because McCade had a new series out and anxious because I wasn’t sure if it would be as good as Criminal Intentions is. After weeks of putting off, I finally decided to read this book, and McCade certainly blew my mind.

Breaking News (Prime Time #2) by Ella Frank [Book Review]

The nail-biting cliffhanger at the end of Inside News left me in jitters, and I waited with bated breath to get my hands on the next book. Breaking News, the second book in the Prime Time Trilogy was worth the wait and anticipation. It picks off right from the first book and takes us on a journey of rediscovery. While Sean is recovering from his injury, Xander battled anxiety and his misplaced guilt. Both are at crossroads, but the best part of Ella Frank’s novels is that the characters never give up on each other or their relationship. They fight the problems together and emerge much stronger.

Wreck Me Forever (Polished P & P, #1) by Lila Rose [Book Review]

Lila Rose is mostly popular for her Straight Romances, which involve alpha heroes bursting with testosterone. They are either MC sojourns or firefighters. Although she has written gay romances like Hear Me Out (Hawks MC Caroline Springs Charter #5), Coming Out (Hawks Motorcycle Club #4.5), I have only read her ménage romance Out of the Blue. It was quite interesting, to say the least. So when I found her new book Wreck Me Forever (Polished P & P, #1), listed on Goodreads, I knew that I had to read it. The gorgeous Cover Design was another reason for following up on this novel.

Prince’s Master (Masters Series #1) by Alessandra Hazard

Prince’s Master is a new spin-off to Alessandra Hazard’s popular “Calluvia’s Royalty” series. Set in an intergalactic universe that is not only far away from our solar system but also quite a bit more advanced, and Calluvia is split into the Seven Grand Clans. Calluvians are much more technologically advanced and also have superior mental abilities, including telekinesis. Each Clan is ruled by the firstborn child, irrespective of their gender. The best part is that they allow same-sex marriages, and children are given birth through genetic engineering. The worst part, however, is that they are telepaths, and as such, each royal heir is betrothed at a young age. When I say betrothed, it means that two individuals are mentally bond together, which augments their telekinetic powers.

Inside Affair (Prime Time #1) by Ella Frank [Review]

Gay Romance Novels have always been my guilty pleasure. But I’m picky when it comes to the authors, whose books I prefer reading. I wouldn’t just pick any old book off the rack. For me, the storyline has to be intriguing and make me forget the world around me. One such author is Ella Frank; her books are delectable and deliver you right into the middle of an alternate universe with lead characters that slowly become a part of your life. That’s what happened to me when I read the “Temptations” series and fell in love with “Logan & Tate.” Her “Confessions” got me borderline obsessed with the “Priest, Robbie & Julien” love triangle. ” So, I was an excited bundle of nerves when I heard about this new series, “Prime Time.” It was just later that I realized the main leads belong to the same universe, and they indeed rocked my world! Ella Frank’s novels are popular for the sensual chemistry between the lead characters. Although the main characters in this book are still in the process of understanding each other, they have chemistry in spades, which pretty much keeps you hooked. Without further ado, let’s review this book.

The Gameboys the Series’ Official Soundtrack (OST) [Review]

For years, I have been a silent fan of Original Soundtracks from movies and more recently, the sweeping and heart-tugging theme songs that BL Series from across Asia have been producing like they’re nothing more than arranged poetry – lush, poetic and sung like scores meant to induce the viewer’s emotions to soar.
