It's all Josh's fault. I blame him.

star Mummy Dearest star

This could easily be my new favorite Josh book! OMG!! It was fun and sweet and sexy. A total blast to read. If you are already a Josh fan, you're gonna love it. If you aren't? This is a great place to start! I have a new favorite quote from the book, "The rain in Spain is giving me a pain". Spoken by a character who was just a little tipsy! I great line for a shot glass or mug!

Totally GREAT read.

I highly recommend this book.

Yay! I have Mummy Dearest locked and loaded on my kindle! It looks like a quick read too, so I should be able to fit it in easily....after Supernova. Wink

I picked up The French Have A Word For It during Josh's shortie sale. I agree, Shay, Josh rocks at short stories!
The plot reveals were predictable, but that didn't hurt the story a bit. The plot itself was still very interesting. I'd love to give a little explanation, but it's short enough that I'm afraid I'll spoiler if I do.
I'll just say that Josh managed to squeeze a novel's worth of plot and character development into a story that was a single evening's read for me. It's not graphic, but it did give me a warm and fuzzy romance fix. heart

Oh, Dopple....You just did a great job of explaining Josh's appeal to everyone! He can say more in a single sentence than most writers can say in a lo-ooooog paragraph. I love all his short stories and novellas. Before I started reading Josh, I would NOT have said that and would NOT have thought it would ever happen.

I'm 55% through Mummy dearest. His writing gets better every book, and it was great to start with.
Shay I read Snowball in Hell, it was a real emotional ride, though the time and place for me was foreign to me in the start. But I got over that smile

Greencat, I remember all the posts on JLFP after I reread that. That book just tears me up. Gay men had a horrible time...so much risk! And war veterans! OMG.....even thinking about SIH makes me just want to cry.

ETA: And the title! Gay men didn't have a snowball's chance in hell of having a peaceful and fulfilling life.

I finished LONE STAR on Christmas. Loved it! Sometimes his endings upset me because I want to keep reading coffee

I wanted an epilogue to LONE STAR. I loved the story, but the ending came two or three chapters too early!
A lot of Josh's stories seem like the ending has been clipped. That could possibly have something to do with me falling in love with the characters and greedily wanting more, though.

It's like he just gets them together and their life together has nothing to do with his story at all.

I'll let you read before I start in on my Brandt Rants. I don't want to prejudice you in any way. I heart Taylor.

Taylor just fell off the mountain. How sweet was his thinking that he couldn't live if Will was dead. Awww!

Yup, I'll definitely have to download the next one in this series. Off to finish this one.

They add up and my local library certainly doesn't have an m/m section. I find them worth it.

How are you enjoying Will and Tay Starbrites??? Don't let Faye influence you too much. But then again when has she ever let us astray?

I read the first book and I downloaded and I'm getting ready to start the 2nd one. After I read old poison I'll let you know what I think. I think I need at least 2 books to form an opinion. smile so far though I love Taylor! Haven't made a choice on Will yet.

Finished Book 2

I have to say I heart Taylor and I am hoping Will will grow on me. I was pretty upset with him though when he had his goodbye with Bradley.. Will is so damn negative and it really bugs the shit out of me!
