I just read the first and second of Cameron Dane's Redemption series. First one was good. The second was a miss. I will be reading more from her. Maybe I'll read A Fostered Love next. Thanks, Starbrites.

I have had a trip to Brazil... Lee Brazil. He writes a series called Truth or Dare based on the Blake family - a Hollywood power family, 4 sons that play poker every Tuesday night. They have the right to declare any given hand a Truth or Dare hand; as a way to force a brother into action, generally on his love life. Number 4 came out yesterday and it was IMO the best of the bunch Taking the Dare
Another great story of Lee's is Loving Jacob heart

They can't get rid of the house though, so decide to take in a room mate so they can pay off the mortgage asap. Morgan, of course, is HAWT. And both guys fancy him..... only to discover that if you care enough to be jealous; then you do in fact, still care smile fun and uber sexy read.

I am now on the sequel The Closer I Get so far, so verra, verra good. This is Morgans story

Dreaming in color ~ Cameron Dane


This book turned out to be really good. The emotional relationship, a big secret going on and the mystery of the house was just fantastic. Cried a little too.

Just read Anything for You by Ethan Day! I heart this book!

star star AFY star star

I have to add this as one of the funniest things I have ever read. I have laughed hard at alot of stuff but this right here had me holding my sides.

"I'm a great big cock-sucking homo and I love Chad!"

Really, Maybe I need some serious help but that whole scene in the book was just fucking hysterical.

No that was at the end when he was confessing to his sister that he was gay. Bu the speech he made to Chad's parents was also awesome! This book had some serious stuff going on but it also had some of the funniest shit going on too.

Yup, I sure do..

When Jason and Chad are at dinner with Chad's Parents. The Mother says to her son that she wished he would stop pawing all over his boyfriend because he dosen't seem comfortable with it. Then Jason pipes right up and says..

"Actually, Mrs. Wellington." Then he squirms around in his seat to prove a point. " I know it probably looks that way to you, about my being uncomfortable and all. But that's not not it, I swear. Your son here fucked the hell out of me right before we left the house for dinner and my ass is killing me."

OMG! Now I am laughing all over again!!

I loved how he kept de-gaying his apartment everytime someone came over.. The magazines, gay movies, Closets are for Gowns Darling magnet, Men of Malibu calendar and I LOVED this one The Erection Connection mouse pad!!!! roflmao

Oh, and his sister is awesome. Running down that bitch who stole her boots in the store line. Waits for her in the parking lot then hits the gas and drove right into her car door. Ripped it right off.

This really was a awesome book.

OMG! roflmao I remember that restaurant scene. Classic! I laughed over that for days. smile

Ethan has a new book coming out, but he says it's not a comedy. I'm simultaneously disappointed and it won't be an Ethan funnyfix, and excited to see Ethan branch out.

I read Shattered Glass by Dani Alexander this week. Maybe my favorite read of 2012! So good!


I'm now reading The Haunting of St. Xavier by Carol Lynne and TA Chase. It's a little creepier then I thought it would be and I love that. Only 50 pages in.

Showme, did you like Shattered Glass more than Dark Horse? Not a challenge between books, just a sort of very general feeling about books. They were so different that I think they are difficult to compare I have raved over Shattered Glass. I have raved over Dark Horse. I have also raved over A Discovery Of Witches. If I had to vote for my favorite so far? I would refuse to vote. They were all fantastic.

I don't think you can compare them at all. I personally loved them both. What benefits Dark Horse is that we have had more than one book. I wouldn't be able to choose. At all.

By the way, Kate is totally flexible for her chat....

They really are two totally different reads IMO. I think I liked Shattered Glass better because it didn't make me cry for days! I could cry right now Sad They were both really good but I always prefer to laugh then to cry.

I wish I had highlighted all the parts of Shattered Glass that made me laugh. There would be a LOT of highlights!

I said the same thing, Shay! I think Swede did so we can always count on her smile

The Haunting of St. Xavier was pretty good. Creepier then I thought but with a nice little love story. A nice message about being yourself and accepting that just because some men may hate you because your gay, doesn't mean god does. You wouldn't have caught me in that place *shivers* Freaky! I would recommend this book.

The Haunting of St Xavier? Hmmmm.....I haven't read a scary book in years. Might be fun.

ETA: Got it. I will get to in in a day or so. The preview sounds really good. Looking forward to it.

It wasn't that scary, Shay. Really creepy. Worth reading.

Finished reading Kissed By God by TA Chase. Nice short read about addiction. I'm a little peeved it was so short. It could have been really good with about 50 more pages.
