Slave Boy by Evangeline Anderson

I’m a fan of Evangeline Anderson. Especially her gay stories. Her book, The Assignment, was the first e-book I read and fell in love with the story and inspired me to actually try writing gay fiction for publishment. So, of course, when Ms. Anderson released a new gay book, I had to get it.

I wasn’t disappointed. Though I’m not a huge sci-fi nut (I have to like the author before I read most), but I started reading without judgment. Slave boy is a hot story. It was filled with sexy scenes, BDSM elements, and some interesting characters that a reader could really hate. Let’s not forget the suspense as Haven and his novice (Light Bringer in training), Wren declare their love though it was forbidden.

This is a classic story of soulmates. How can one go wrong with that theme?

Slave Boy
Evangeline Anderson
Publisher: Loose-Id
Genre: Gay, sci-fi/futuristic
Format: e-book

Haven is a Master of the Order of the Light--a revered sect of mediators and healers that roam the galaxy righting wrongs. Ten years ago he bought a ragged slave boy from Rigel Six and brought him to live at the Temple of Light on Radiant. As Wren's master and mentor, Haven knows the young man is off limits, so he keeps his forbidden feelings for his novice under wraps, vowing never to act on them.

Wren has been in love with his master from the moment he laid eyes on him. Haven rescued him from a life of sexual slavery and his gratitude is exceeded only by his desire for the tall, broad shouldered man he calls Master.

When the pair are sent to mediate a conflict aboard the huge Tiberion war ship, Haven discovers that he must have a pleasure slave to fulfill the local customs. Wren offers to play the part but will his role as Haven's slave boy bring back too much of his painful past? And how can Haven keep his vows of chastity when he is forced to use Wren in the most forbidden way? In a matter of life or death, both men must act on their hidden desires and hope not to lose each other forever.

Eight Nights by Keira Andrews

Tis the season for lots of Christmas/holiday stories. I’ve got a few in my book folder and it looks like I’ll probably read them again before Christmas is actually here. (Gotta refresh my memory and make sure they are still available before I post anything here). However, I’ve had this one sitting there for some time and just hadn’t gotten around to reading. With December in full swing, tree up, decorations hung, how could I not take the time?

This is my first time reading Keira Andrews. As a fellow Loose-Id author, I knew it would be well written. I found myself very much drawn into the story. I’m not Jewish and know very little about Hanukkah, so I could relate with the main character, Lucas as he observed his roommate’s family observe many of the traditions that occur during those eight nights.

Of course, the sex between Lucas and Nate (Lucas’s college roommate’s brother) is hot. Nate had wonderful patience as Lucas explored and lost his virginity. The chemistry between the two was steaming and easy going almost right from the start.

Eight Nights has a “happy for now” ending and would love to see more of Lucas and Nate.

This is a sexy read with just the right amount of holiday to make those cold nights a little warmer. ;)

Eight Nights
By Keira Andrews
Publisher: Loose-Id
Genre: Contemporary, Gay, Holiday themed (Festival of Lights Fling)

Lucas McKenzie figures spending the holidays with his annoying roommate's family is better than being alone on campus. The last thing he expects is to lust over Sam's brother -- or for Nate to actually want him back.

They hide their attraction during Hanukkah celebrations, but behind closed doors, Lucas and Nate can't keep their hands (or mouths) off each other. Nate's only looking for a bit of holiday fun, and amazing sex with a hot virgin definitely fits the bill.

Yet as the candles burn, Nate and Lucas begin to realize eight nights will never be enough.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Male/male sexual practices.

Blue Ruin 2: Close To Me

I’m in lust! I’m a writer of male/male erotic fiction. I love the thought/image of two (or more) gorgeous men together. Though I don’t write yaoi, I enjoy reading it. And then there’s the BDSM genre. I write it and take pleasure in reading it. This story has all the above and makes a great story.

Ms. Strauss does a wonderful job with her characters in the Blue Ruin series. How can one not lust after submissive Blue? Or his dominate partner, Derek? I’ll admit that Blue is my favorite. ;) Ms. Strauss brings in some fantastic new characters. Jodi, April, and let’s not forget Cameron…Blue’s nemesis from his school days and threat to his budding relationship with Derek.

I’m not too keen on Cameron. He’s too brash and gruff for delicate Blue. *sigh* However, having him in the plot really created a lot of conflict for Blue and Derek.

If you a superb story, make sure you check out this series.

Blue Ruin 2: Closer To Me
By Katrina Strauss
Publisher: Loose-Id
Genre: BDSM Romantic Suspense Yaoi

Blue finds pleasure in playing pet to Derek, but is eager to pursue goals outside of their relationship. When Blue starts GED classes and expands his social circle, Derek affords him room to grow, trusting their love is enough to keep his restless pet in line.

That love is put to the test when Cameron Carter reappears in Blue's life. An abusive crush from Blue's school days, Cameron is a reformed adult now and seeks absolution for old wrongs. While Blue must find it in his heart to forgive Cameron, the greater challenge lies in keeping his unrequited desire for the former bully at bay.

Derek's torn between enforcing boundaries and allowing Blue closure to heal old wounds. Meanwhile, Cameron struggles to forgive himself for the pain he once caused the boy he secretly loved. As Cameron and Blue begin the road to recovery, the sizzling chemistry between them can no longer be ignored.

Caught between two strong-willed men, can Blue prove his loyalty to one while denying his attraction for the other, or, is it maybe just possible that Blue can have them both?

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: Anal play/intercourse, BDSM (including tethering, humiliation), male/male sexual situations, menage (m/m/m), strong violence.

Raine by Elizabeth Amber

I really enjoyed the first book of this series, Nicholas. From what I saw of Raine in that book I knew I’d love him…and I wasn’t wrong. Both the hero and heroine are stubborn characters, with their own secrets for their own reason. Of course it’s aggravating and I want to strangle them both, but I held in there and wasn’t disappointed.

So far, Raine is my favorite brother, but then I haven’t read Lyon yet. I’m looking forward to the type of woman who can tame that one. *wiggle eyebrows*

Oh, this is a great book, you should read it.

Wicked Hot by Charlene Teglia

After discovering a Waldenbooks in a nearby mall, I’m finding that I’m reading more and more new authors. Of course, I’m elated that they carry print books from Ellora’s Cave, Samhain, and Kensington Aphrodisia. An entire section with erotic romance. :D Talk about being in hog heaven. Of course, I’ve got loads of e-books here on my computer, but being a writer, there are just days I don’t even want to look at this screen a moment longer. However, I’ve broken down and ordered me a e-book reader. It should be here next week, so I’ll be able to break this tie from my laptop and tell you about all the great books I have here.

Okay, on to my next newfound author. Charlene Teglia. The title of this book got my attetion. Wicked Hot. Oh, and the man’s torso on the cover help catch my attention too *wink* But her tag line also sealed the deal. Two immortal warriors, satisfying her every need…

Wicked Hot is enough to give any woman a wet dream. *pant* Edana, aka Beelzababe, is a succubus sent to lure the soul from a troublesome Nephilim, Eli. Instead, she ends up being bound by her target, his every order carried out, including doing the dishes. Then throw in Dal, Eli’s brother, and we’ve got the pieces for some hot, wicked sex.

And let me tell you, if you like sex, threesomes, sex, anal play/penetration, and more sex…yeah, this is the book for you.

I really enjoyed this book, however, I have one complaint. It’s written in first person, which I have no trouble with. But all through the book I kept asking “What’s going on in Eli’s head?” He was so controlled and showed such little emotion except for possessiveness toward Edana, that it personally bugged me that I didn’t have more insight. But that is just my own personal opinion on this book and my own nagging hag in my brain wanting more.

I highly recommend this book for some hours of hot fun.
