Cowboy Danny Boone—a name he made up one drunken night and has regretted ever since—harbors a big past and yearns for a small future. A short, bright career as a champion bull rider almost ended in his death when his homophobic father discovered Danny was gay. Now Danny longs for a plot of land he can build a ranch house on and enough money to make up for some of the education he missed.

Danny also hides a preference for beautiful femmes who like to top—a combo rarer than a unicorn. Then onto the guest ranch where Danny works drives San Francisco decorator Laurie Belmont, a young man so gorgeous he makes horses gasp, and so ballsy he almost kills Danny’s attacker.

Laurie’s trying to find his way out from under the thumb of a domineering mother, helpless father, and rich, privileged boyfriend.

But no matter the attraction, their lives are worlds apart, and cowboys don’t ride unicorns.

Cowboys Don’t Ride Unicorns(Cowboys Don’t #2)

by Tara Lain

****3.5 Stars rounded to 4****

4-3-360x74


I haven’t read the previous book in this series, so it’s safe to say that this one can be read as a stand alone. I usually don’t read a lot of books that have a femme/flamboyant hero, because I am much more into the whole big bad alpha thing.

What I do love, however, are cowboys…they are my kryptonite.

Danny is a ranch hand at a dude ranch, which is owned by Rand (book 1). He used to be a famous bull rider in the past, but his dad put a stop to that, in a very cruel way. Danny changed his name and even though, he still rides on rodeo’s from time to time, to make some money…

…he tries to stay as far away from his past as he can.

Danny also has a very specific preference, when it comes to his romance/sex life. He loves flamboyant men, but he loves it even, more when they top him. Finding such a mystical unicorn isn’t very easy, though.

giphy.gif (500×221)


Until one day, such a rare unicorn walks into the ranch as a guest…. Danny feels an immediate attraction towards the flamboyant man. There is only one problem. Laurie didn’t come alone, he is with his boyfriend. His very rich boyfriend.

While Danny is trying to outrun his past, Laurie is struggling with his future.

Apollo-13-Houston-We-Have-a-Problem-Tom-Hanks.gif (500×214)

He wants to do right by his parents and he knows his boyfriend could be a big help, but shouldn’t his feelings matter. He knows Grove is not the man for him. What he really wants is a go at that cowboy.

Luckily for both of them, he gets that chance …

“Hang on. It’s gonna be a bumpy ride”.

But what will happen when Danny is confronted with his past and Laurie’s future gets in the way….


This book was heavy on the insta-love, I would have liked it more if the two of them would have gotten to know each other a bit better. I also would have liked to read more about Danny and his father. The situation between them was quite volatile and it was fixed a bit too fast and easy for my taste.

Still ..it was a very nice read, even though my preference for alpha men has not changed.

In the end, I am happy that Danny found his unicorn….

No Regrets by Nicky James

*****5 Stars*****

images-27


A truly moving love story

There is a note to the reader at the start of this book, from the Author.I’m only going to quote her final words and hopefully, that will be enough to convince anyone to read this amazing book.

No one will die in this book.You will not journey with Landon to his end.Instead, you will walk beside him and watch him live.

I knew reading this would be painful for me as someone very close to me had the exact same illness Landon has.I knew all those memories would come flooding back and they did but I wouldn’t have missed reading this for anything.


Landon is 26 and has a terminal illness.

He’s working his way through his bucket list and while he’s in China he meets Abel. Abel is like a breath of fresh air….he’s pushy but so endearing. Landon is happy in his own company, he’s resigned to the fact he can’t let anyone get close to him.

But Abel has other ideas…

After their initial encounter they bump into each other again and no matter how hard he tries Landon can’t seem to deter Abel.One of the things on his bucket list is to have sex with a stranger so Landon thinks why not?

It was only supposed to be a one night stand…


Landon and Abel are two of the most engaging characters I’ve read about and together they are perfect.
I had a lump in my throat more than once reading this.

I felt…
Every emotion.
Every struggle.
Every happy moment.
Every sad moment.


The message is a strong one and it’s so beautifully written.

Life is for living!

Take every moment, and if you’re lucky enough to find that special person to share it with-grasp it with both hands and don’t let go.

“I love you, Abel, as much as you’ve made this harder on me, you’ve made my life a million times brighter.No regrets, okay?”


This book ended with hope for me.
Hope, that these two amazing men get to share their lives'(however short) together.

Landon and Abels’ story is just beautiful.

Highly recommended!

Leo Loves Aries (Signs of Love #1) by Anyta Sunday

*****4.5 Stars*****

4.5stdtd


This is just adorable!

I’ve had it on my Kindle for a while but it wasn’t until I saw a friend’s status update that I decided to read it and once I started it, I couldn’t put it down.
Theo….what can I say, I just loved that boy….completely clueless in the most endearing way.


Theo and his twin sister, Leone, are star signs, Leo.

They’ve both been hurt in love and set about trying to get each other dates for the upcoming wedding of both their ex’s.Their mother is into horoscopes in a big way and is constantly giving them predictions about the future.


Jamie’s star sign is Aries.He’s an ex-tutor of Theo.

Theo and Leone are looking for a roommate, Jamie is looking for a new place so it’s the perfect arrangement right?


This book captivated me….

I loved

  • The banter between Theo and Jamie was just brilliant.

I loved

  • Their chemistry and interactions….
    Jamie being so awkward ice skating,
    Their trips for food shopping,
    Jamie for taking care of Theo, without him even realizing it,
    The, not so subtle, innuendos that Jamie kept throwing about.
  • Leone for being a strong, independent women.

Theo: Why do I hear the emphasis on ‘you’? Am I that hard to be around?

Jamie: You said it.


Theo starts off seeing Jamie as a really good friend….over time, a best friend.He misses him when he’s not around but he straight so gets confused when he starts to feel an attraction to him and jealous of other people getting close to him.

The jealousy….I LOVED it.

Jamie getting jealous over Theo dating.
Theo getting jealous over Jamie’s best friend.

Yes, it’s a slow burn and not overly graphic as regards sex scenes but it totally worked for me….
I’m still swooning.

Highly Recommended!

True Colors (True Love #2) by Anyta Sunday

*****4.5 Stars*****

4.5+STARS.png (629×121):


I absolutely loved “Leo loves Aries”, so when I was given the opportunity to read and reviews this book, I jumped on it.

True Colors is a sweet story about friends, loss, fear forgiveness and love.

Marco and Oskar have been best friends since they were little. Oskar has always been there for Marco, especially after his mother died and he got hurt. Oskar has been his rock his first color…his sunglow yellow.

That is until they are 16 and he’s not anymore…

giphy.gif (500×241)


Fast forward 4 years and Oskar is back in town.

Marco is still very angry and hurt. Oskar is the reason for all his insecurities and he can’t find it in himself to forgive and pretend like nothing happened. Avoiding Oskar is not an option either. Especially since Oskar’s family lives next door to his father and grandfather, they are all good friends. The fact that Oskar’s sister Zoe is one of Marco’s best friends complicates things even further.

To make matters worse, they are forced to act together in a play, Marco’s father is producing. It’s a play to honor Marco’s deceased mother, so saying no is not an option. Oskar seems pretty happy to be in this play. He wants to patch things up between two of them.

He really wants to makes things right.

r2a8v1.gif (400×226)


They are co-stars and it’s up to Marco to decide on the ending….there are two options….a tragic one or a HEA. Marco isn’t ready to leave the past behind and….

…he is set on the tragic ending.

10813276.gif (500×281)


Slowly but surely they start to start to rebuilt their friendship. This is a very slow burn, but once with get there…it burns like hell !!

“There hasn’t been a day since I was fourteen that you weren’t on my mind. I wanted to hold you: I wanted to make you laugh: I also wanted to stretch you out naked on my bed: I wanted to push inside of you and fuck you until you convulsed with my name quivering at your lips. I want you, Marco. Every inch of you.”

tumblr_munynzOIUh1sunxd5o1_500.gif (500×488)


I really enjoyed this one. I loved reading about Marco and all his colors. I am very happy he got his sunglow yellow back…

glow.gif (1267×576):

“You were my first color”. “My happy. My everything.”

Sunglow Yellow. The start of our story.

Jamie’s life is one big financial mess, and it really isn’t his fault. However, the last thing he expected to find in the library was a Good Samaritan. He might have been suspicious of Guy’s motives at first, but it soon becomes apparent that his savior is a good man who has been lucky in life and is looking to pay it forward. Guy being gay is not a problem. Jamie’s not interested… or so he thinks.

Guy is happy to help Jamie, and the two men get along fine. But when Jamie’s curiosity leads him from one thing to another, Guy finds himself looking at the younger man with new eyes. What started out as a hand up is now something completely different….

****4 Stars****

4stel-like


I’m not normally a fan of an age difference but this really worked for me.

Jamie is nearly 21 and struggling to put himself through college.

The college fund his parents had for him has been used for his parents long and messy divorce.He’s just lost one of the three jobs he had and is behind with his rent when a kind of Knight in Shining Armour steps in.


Guy is 38 and has a very comfortable life.

He offers Jamie a room in his home, wants to help with bills and tuition and genuinely wants Jamie to get the best out of life.
You might be forgiven for thinking this was just a bit unbelievable but somehow it wasn’t and I think it’s because Guy is a good man…I mean a really good man.There was no creepy ulterior motive about Guy’s proposal.He had been in a similar situation when he was young and someone stepped up to help him and he wants to repay the favor.

Guy is upfront about his sexuality.He’s gay but has two grown up children around Jamie’s age from a relationship when he was young.Jamie is straight and hasn’t had much time or inclination for sex.


There is no insta lust here.

They become friends and develop a mutual respect for each other.But gradually things change and their relationship develops at just the right pace.I don’t think this book it about being labeled as gay, straight or bi…..it’s a story of two men who connect emotionally and then physically.I enjoyed their friendship just as much as their sexual relationship…

…which was smoking hot!!


Some brilliant supporting characters, especially Ryan and Cole…….I so want their stories.The Epilogue giving teasers about Cole was very intriguing. I’m hoping his story is next if there is going to be one??

Talking of the Epilogue….I’m not normally bothered either way about one but this was just perfect.
A recommended read, even if you’re not a fan of an age difference I think this one might convert you.

Since putting his life on hold ten years ago, Oliver Clayton doesn’t know who he is anymore. To his clients at the hair salon, he’s the sassy and confident stylist. To the crowds who come to watch his drag act at the club, he’s the fierce and fabulous Miss Tique. He’s popular. Talented. Out, proud, and self-assured.

He’s also a good actor.

Sebastian Day is content with life’s easy, if not a little monotonous, routine. After several failed relationships, he likes the simplicity of being alone in his truck at his job as a heavy goods driver, spending the weekends with his teenage son, and putting the world to rights with his cat, Marv. He’s not lonely. He isn’t hiding.

At least…he doesn’t think he is until he meets the mesmerizing stranger with the red hair and purple lips.

Can Oliver and Sebastian help each other embrace who they are? Or will a cruel twist of fate end their journey before it’s even begun?

(M/M Romance. Not recommended for readers under 18 years of age due to language and sexual content.)

*****5 Stars*****imageedit_104_7293237175


Personally the sign of a good book, for me, is if I’m still thinking about it hours after I’ve finished it.

I absolutely loved this.I loved the happiness, the sadness, the hopes and struggles these amazing characters went through.

I’ve read Broken by this Author so I thought it wouldn’t be all sunshine and roses and it wasn’t but what it is, is a truly emotional love story.


Oliver has put his life on hold for 10 years….

…Concentrating on bringing up his younger half brother after their mother died.He struggles emotionally and financially, all he wants is to be a good parent to Ty.He works as a hair stylist by day and a drag act at night as the wonderfully flamboyant Miss Tique.He loves his makeup and heels and puts on a good act to the outside world.


Seb is a truck driver, one of the good guys.

He shares custody of his 15-year son with his ex who he has a fantastic relationship with.In fact, he’s got a lot of love and support from all his family.But things haven’t been easy for him.He’s bi and this is the first book I’ve read where I came to fully understand that being bi isn’t easy. The Author perfectly portrayed the struggles he went through as he and others came to terms with his sexuality.

Oliver and Seb story is beautiful.

It’s far from perfect but they face what life throws at them together.

” Are you flirting with me?”
” Is it working?”
” Maybe “


I’m not going into the story in any detail.I would advise going into this one relatively blind to get the most out of their story…trust me.
Some fascinating secondary characters who all played their part here.

You’ll need the tissues here but don’t worry, although there are sad tears there are truly happy tears as well.
A huge plus for me is that it’s set in the North of England (near me ) and I love that the Author kept it British from the banter to local shop names and the food….who doesn’t like beans on toast?…..that really is a British thing!

This is a beautiful story that I wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend.

I don’t do relationships…especially not with egotistical jerks like my new boss, Damian Wood. The man is vile, arrogant, condescending… and scorching hot. If he weren’t my boss and a grade-A a*&hole, I would turn on my world-famous charm and seduce the pants right off the man. But giving in to his undeniable allure might just cost me my job. Or worse yet, my heart.

I’m a prick…and Janice Holder’s new boss. Which means I should stay away, but I’ve never claimed to be a nice guy. If I don’t get my twisted fascination under control, it will only be a matter of time before I bend her over my desk and screw her. Hard. The way I’ve imagined no fewer than a thousand times since we met. I’m playing with fire and neither of us can afford to get burned, but landing in hot water might just be worth the risk.

Faking It with Damian is a full-length, standalone office romance. It contains steamy scenes with a ton of heat and strong language intended for mature audiences.

The book starts with Janice.

Imagine similară

A beautiful blond girl with green eyes and a smoking hot body (of course she has a perfect body, she’s a Zumba instructor part time). Her dad abandoned her and her mother when she was a little girl. She doesn’t do relationships, she’s afraid of commitment, she thinks everyone will abandon her. But she also doesn’t have time for anyone in her life, because she takes care of her mother, who is dying.  She also hates her boss because he’s making her life miserable at work. But as much as she hates him, as much she is attracted to him. 


Damian is Janice new boss.

Imagini pentru hot guy dark hair with blue eyes

He’s a very sexy god with dark hair and blue eyes who takes every woman’s breath away. He is also an arrogant asshole, demanding, dominant and vile. As much as he try’s to stay as far away as possible from Janice, he is more and more attracted to her, and he does everything in his power to have her. Even lie to her and drag her in some funny games. Damian also had a hard life. His parents hating him all his life, and much more when his grandfather left all his fortune to him.


When the opportunity strikes, he doesn’t kick it away, he takes advantage and attracts Janice in his trap.

Every opportunity that he has.

“Kneel”

L〰:

What a demanding asshole. That scene…so intense.


The story with Damian wife was interesting, and although I don’t like drama, this one I enjoyed.

The book was intense but in the end...it softened. The sex action was good and hot…but to much licking. I liked that, don’t get me wrong, but I wanted much action in the real sex part. It was a scene when I thought that I would get some menage action, but damn…..no.

Interesting story with her father and the reason why he left her and her mother. That one I was not expecting.The book was good. The chemistry and the attraction between them were hot and intense, but I didn’t get Janice most of the time.

The book was funny, was good written, I liked the story, I liked the hero…but not so much the heroine.

Damian Tate. One look into his sad green eyes and I was hooked. I wanted to be the one to make him laugh, to make him smile. I hadn’t expected him to be the one to make me blush, to make me hot…to make me fall in love. He was my first kiss, my first love, my first everything. I wanted forever with him, but life got in the way.

He enlisted, I went to college, and for years we were never in the same place long enough to pick up where we left off.

Thirteen years after he left, tragedy brings him home. The stoic boy I fell in love with grew into a quiet, dangerous and wildly sexy man. He still tugs on all the right strings for me, but he seems determined to keep me at arm’s-length.

However, when trouble comes knocking at my door, he is the one to put himself between that trouble and me.

Spending time with him might drive me insane, or it might be our second chance at first love.

Misfits (Urban Soul #1) by Garrett Leigh

****4 Stars****4-fjf


This was my first book by Garrett Leigh, and she most certainly did not disappoint. 

I know she is a writer that has the ability to dig into a character and draw out deep emotions that make them come alive on the page.  I, however, am a complete and total baby with a mushy heart that easily breaks…so I’ve tended to avoid more angsty stories.


I haven’t read a ménage book in years,…

…so I was coming into this one with an open mind not having other books in this genre on my mind.  The problem I have run into with this type of book is I am a true romantic at heart, that being said I am also possessive, competitive and do not share well – especially the love of my life.  Let’s be honest, ménage books are on a slippery slope, it can often be difficult to bring out a real romance and relationship.  So; I was very happily surprised when that was exactly what this book was going for, and I’ll be damned….she was able to do it!!


Tom and Cass have been together for nine years, they live together, own businesses together and are totally committed to each other.  They met when they were very young, and fell fast in love, but were too young to settle down….so they didn’t.  This led them to have an open relationship, they are very honest with each other and share everything.

school work confused real housewives of orange county rhoc

I personally don’t get it, but hey it totally works for them. 

They hook up with blokes from time to time and on occasion, even together, but it’s not often they find someone they both like, so that’s rare.


Their businesses were thriving keeping them very busy and often away from each other. 

One night while Tom is at dinner Tom researching his next project he meets Jake, they seem to have a connection right from the start.  Flirting leads to spending the night together, but in the morning Jake wakes up to not Tom in the room with him but Cass.  He has no idea about their open arrangement and can’t get out of there fast enough.  He can’t help but think Tom has cheated with him and is none too happy with the situation.

“It’s not cheating, Jake.  We choose to live this way.  It might not make sense to you, but it works for us.”

Jake doesn’t really understand the situation between them, but Tom isn’t ready to give Jake up, and Jake is equally interested in Tom.  Tom is torn between his quickly growing feelings for Jake and how it can fit into his relationship with Cass, he can’t live two separate lives.  Cass seems to be trying to push Jake and Tom together, and Jake is confused by his feeling for both men.


Circumstances arise for Jake, and while Tom is a fixer at heart, wanting to help and save everyone he loves, Cass is the person that ends up being there for Jake. Jake and Cass start to grow a beautiful friendship, but Jake doesn’t feel right getting in between Tom and Cass, he sees they have a very loving relationship.  But he notices that something is going on under the surface. Cass seems to be holding himself back, blocking himself from Tom, and Jake can see and fell the underlying tension.

“I’m not punishing you, Cass.  I just don’t want to be alone, and neither do you, so why are we both so lonely?”


The three become a family of sorts and you can watch the transitions from friend to lover, Cass and Jake build a slow bond that grows of its own accord, nothing was forced.  Tom and Jake, from the start they had feelings fast and strong but were able to grow into something more.  They all needed to work on different aspects of their lives,…

…and truly that was what the majority of this story centered around.

Image result for three men gay hugging

They did all come together, and believe me when I say, it was hot..hot…SO HOT!!! 

wow fan oh christina aguilera ooh


This really ended up being a journey of acceptance and understanding not everyone has the same definition of love and family. 

Image result for 1+1+1

This relationship with the three of them was what they needed to be happy and complete.

“Tom knew Cass was the love of his life and Jake…Jake had taught them to love each other better.  Jake had taught them how to live.”

They found a way to make it work, different was normal for them.

Ever since reading the first book in the “Stage Dive” series, I have been a huge fan of Kylie Scott.

I loved all books in that series and so when the “Dive Bar” series came out, I jumped right into that one too. I really liked the first book in this series, so when I received an ARC for book 2, it made my day.  🙂

I have to say that I liked this book a bit more than book 1. Reason being… the heroine.   She was extremely funny and sarcastic…and I just love some me good sarcasm…

This book is about Joe and Alex….and no, Alex is not a guy….sorry guys. 😛

Joe is a sexy lumbersexual, working as a bartender at “Dive Bar”. He also helps his father in his carpentry business. Joe has a beard….Bearded men usually don’t do it for me….at all. However, the reference to “Thor” kind of got to me, so I figured I could work with it.  😉

Joe has been snooping in his brother Erik’s online dating account and it was there, that he met the lovely Alex.


Alex is a graphic designer, who works mostly from home.

She doesn’t have many friends, just one really because she is a bit socially awkward. She doesn’t do relationships either. One night stands are really all that she is after, but after emailing back and forth with her new online buddy, she starts reconsidering. Finally, she picks up the courage, to go meet the man face to face.

These two don’t really start off on the right foot. It did make for some hilarious scenes, though.

I loved snarky Alex !!

“Lumbersexuals were clearly the worst. Truth was, I’d never been especially into beards.  At best, I’d been indifferent. Now, however, I outright despised them. Horrible hairy frames for lying lips and duplicitous tongues, that’s what they were. Loathsome whiskery bastards. Burn them all in a fire”.

This girl was funny as hell !!


I also really liked Joe. He was very sweet, charming and sexy, though, at the end, he pissed me off something fierce !!

Still…these two made an awesome couple.

They were funny together, their banter was great and the steam was HOT !!

I am very curious to see who is gonna be next in this series. I myself hope it’s Erik’s turn to fall flat on his face. That guy needs a good kick in the nuts by the right girl !!

Even though I really liked this book and I laughed my ass off…

Mal and Jimmy from “Stage Dive” will always be my favorites…..though you never know.

 

An ARC was kindly provided to me, by the author, in exchange for an honest review.
