"Boys in Our Books"…

…we're keeping our name but expanding our offerings!




“Fever Pitch” by Heidi Cullinan

fever pitch

Hands down for so many reasons, most of them personal but this book… this book was beyond amazing.

4.5 & 5 STAR BOOKS OF 2014:


Overhyped book of the year

(What’s all the fuss about?):

Ball and Chain by Abigail Roux. The wait to see what happened after that perfectly romantic and amazing kiss at the end of Touch & Geaux was more exciting than what I got with the first few pages… where I stopped reading and never picked it up again. I still don’t get it.

Underhyped book of the year

(Why haven’t more people read this?):

I don’t know that I have a truly underhyped book. I read all over the place and really think that everyone has their own deal when it comes to why they love a book but I will say, The Flesh Cartel is a misunderstood series. Sure, it’s tough, it’s a hard read at times but it’s one of the most amazing, stellar, well written and just rip your heart out series I have read.

Best surprise of the year

(didn’t know what to expect or the story caught you off guard or anything that just…surprised you…):

Evenfall by Ais/Santino Hassell and Captive Prince Volume 2 by C.S. Pacat.. These books are not what I normally read and I was prompted to give both a try. I can’t imagine now, not having read them. I get it, what everyone has said about these books; the writing, the world building and the hotter than hot UST between both couples. Le Unf! I get it.

Auto-buy authors

(I’d buy anything these authors write, without a doubt):

Heidi Cullinan

MJ O’Shea

Sue Brown

Jay Northcote

Garrett Leigh

Eli Easton

Josh Lanyon

Aleksandr Voinov

… Um, there are more…

No wonder I spend so much money on books. Oops?

My reading experience in 2014:

This was the year for me to try new things. I pushed myself to read out of my comfort zone, to try new authors and to examine what really makes me tick. Each year I find new tropes and new styles etc. that tickle my fancy and others that I am more than comfortable leaving behind.

What I’m hoping for/looking forward to in my 2015 reading journey?

To once again push myself to read more of what I wouldn’t. I am looking for more gay literature to read, also books that were written in the70’s or earlier – I have been searching local used bookstores and found a few – and to simply enjoy falling in love with romance between men and also, women. I am looking forward to finding some good f/f reads and well as transgendered. As one would say, my reading journey looks like a colorful rainbow.

    I am so glad you enjoyed CP, I loved watching your status updates as you read that one. And kudos for branching outside your comfort zone, pushing myself more on this is something I know I need to work on more.

      Thanks! It took me a bit but once I got it with CP, I just got it and fell head over heels. It’s hard to branch out but I am so glad I did it. I hope to find more gems this year.

    So many good ones on your list Sara! I like what you said about Flesh Cartel as well. So many people are scared off before starting it they really do miss out on a great story.
