Little Japan by Jaye Valentine and Reno MacLeod

Little Japan by Jaye Valentine and Reno MacLeod

Blurb:
Japan. Land of honor and beauty, crowded streets with neon signs, and exotic markets where ancient traditions still hold fast in modern-day society. As Japanese business people rush about their busy lives, there exists a place in Osaka, Japan where a modern take on the ancient tradition of the geisha thrives.

Kuri and Daichi work at Kingyo Club, a popular host club in the Dōtonbori district of Osaka. After sleeping their days away, the boys’ nights are owned by the host club lifestyle and anyone willing to pay the steep price for a few hours of hard drinking and flirtatious companionship. Kuri and Daichi are lovers and best friends, and along with their roommates Sora and Takumi, they look out for one another in an occupation fraught with both physical and emotional danger.

In addition to the endless bottles of fizzy champagne, expensive gifts, and confessions of false love courtesy of regular clients, every now and then comes a customer with even deeper pockets and much darker demands. Gabriel Hartley is one of these men. After a chance meeting, Gabriel targets the stunning Kuri to feed his obsession with seducing and dominating young Japanese men.

The relationship between Kuri and Gabriel dramatically changes when a traumatic event plunges them from the Land of the Rising Sun into the land of powerful sheikhs and servant boys in the dark underworld of exotic Dubai. As Kuri struggles with the heartache of having what’s most precious to him ripped away, he helps Gabriel learn important lessons about love, honor, and the power of self-forgiveness.

Isaac Lang is deeply in love with his live-in life-partner, Baltimore City police officer Jeff Clark, and has a serious kink for risky role-play sex with strangers. Jeff finds Isaac’s wild ways incredibly hot, and he’s more than willing to help facilitate Isaac’s lustful cravings.

Jeff trusts Isaac to be emotionally faithful despite the sexual experimentation, and Isaac trusts Jeff to watch his back and keep him safe from harm. Not a lifestyle everyone might aspire to or could successfully manage, but Isaac and Jeff make their quest for kink work to keep the sparks flying in their relationship.

Top Ten List Part One

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!

It’s almost impossible to pick a “Top Ten” list. Given that I’ve read over 500 GLBT fiction books and short stories in the past year, I ran into a wall trying to choose just ten. There are the comfort reads that I’ve already read numerous times, regardless of numerical star. Then there are the fabulous, gut wrenching books that are truly wonderful but I’m not likely to read again. There are the thought provoking literature reads, the mind bending spec fiction, fun romps, and the pure porn books.

In the sea of books, I did the best I could to come up with 10 books you should read if you haven’t. Then I threw in 5 series, and 5 favorites. Yea, I couldn’t stay with just 10. Sorry!

So today will be the 5 series you should read if you haven’t.
Best of the best of the c*ck on c*ck…

Midweek reads!

Midweek reads!

 

First up is a free read from Kirby Crow called Cocksucking Appointment.  Prostitutes Ethan and Snow may sell their bodies but they love each other. Unfortunately Ethan can not be the Dom and Master Snow needs and their relationship threatens to change when an assertive new client of Ethan’s takes an interest in Snow.

This free read is quick and delightful. Although not entirely polished (I think written on the fly for the TQ social days), this is a great little read and I easily recommend this for those looking for something short but entertaining.  Download it for FREE!

Second
is Jaye Valentine’s new paranormal with an edgy twist called Damn Gorgeous. Spenser is a reporter with a serious love of things that go bump in the night. When a new assignment brings him to Fall River and to a sexy innkeeper, Spenser may be in over his head finally.
 

This novella is creepy, slick, and interesting. Not to mention filled with spoilers to the point that it’s easier to just throw this in as a midweek read than write a full review. But be sure to pick up a copy for yourself and see if you guess the ending. It caught me I admit and I hope this is the start of a series. Get it HERE!

Third is Sean Kennedy’s Christmas short story that I just got around to read called Secret Santa.  In this fun short story, Zach is doing some last minute shopping for the holiday, stressing about bringing his boyfriend home to meet the family when he happens to glance over at the mall Santa. A familiar pair of eyes meets his and the fun surprises don’t stop there.

 

This great short story is funny, witty, and definitely will have you eyeing those men in the Santa suits a little bit differently. If you haven’t picked up the Advent calendar stories, then be sure to get this one. It’s quick and easy and worth the few bucks. Get it HERE!

 

 

Tinseltown Blues, #1: All That Glitters by Acer Adamson

Tinseltown Blues, #1: All That Glitters by Acer Adamson

The Blurb:

Everyone knows all that glitters is not gold and in Hollywood that couldn’t be more true.  

For screen star Harley Sheffield, the constant sparkle of champagne bubbles and flash of the media’s cameras are made bearable by only one thing—his older brother, Trey. Unfortunately, in a world where a celebrity’s life is held under continual, microscopic scrutiny, Trey is increasingly uncomfortable with their illicit affair and leaves for six months to search his soul for answers. 

When the need to see Harley becomes overwhelming and Trey returns home, Harley gives him the night to decide what is more important: avoiding the cold glare of Tinseltown and the risk of being discovered, or once again knowing the warmth of his brother’s love.

 

when only your brother’s ass will do…
