Book Rec: Zero at the Bone by Jane Seville

If you’ve ever looked at hitman turned lover story sideways, and wondered if that book was for you, let Jane Seville convince you.  She takes her time with it (this fucker is LONG for a romance novel), but she does it very well.

I had my doubts when I saw the synopsis - Hitman is hired to kill a doctor who is a witness to a mob hit, but hitman has a change of heart, and hitman and witness go on the run from the mob and the US Marshalls!  I just didn’t know how you could take a doctor and get him to fall in love with a guy who kills people for a living?  But somehow Jane Seville makes it work in a totally believable way.

Zero at the Bone.  Jane Seville.

Book Rec: Hot Head by Damon Suede

(That’s gotta be a pen name, right?)

If you are looking for romance novel excellence, look no further.  But seriously, this is one of those books that once you read it you spend the next week or so asking all the other books, “Why can’t you be more like Hot Head?”

This story is the most burningly hot pile of heart breaking pining I have ever had the pleasure of reading.  I loves me some pining, and this book delivers.  The characters are vivid and deep, and you feel every ounce of what Griff feels - his body consciousness, his deep, hopeless love for Dante - oh god this book.  

So it has all that, and then it has Griff calling his dick all kinds of weird teenage boy names.  I could have done without that, but they do fit his character, so.  

BUT THE SEX>  GOD.  The burning hot of the sex in this book.  The kinks herein: FIREFIGHTERS, voyeurism, making pornography, gay-who’s-gay-we’re-just-two-straight-besties-having-mind-melting-sex-on-camera, etc.  It’s hot.

Book Rec: There’s a Viking in my Bed by Jan Irving

This book is exactly what it sounds like.  Boy wakes up one morning to a large, blond, very sexy viking in his bed, licking him awake.  It’s ridiculous and it’s delightful.  There’s a big bad and some magic stuff, but I didn’t let it distract me from the sex.  ;)

There need to be more time traveling Viking romance novels.

Book rec: Cinder by Marie Sexton

I gave myself a day off, and spent it lying on a sofa in front of a wide open breezy window, reading gay romance novels on Scribd.  It was glorious. 

So Cinder.  It’s a short novel (I finished it in an hour or so), and it is what it sounds like - it’s gay Cinderella, and it’s delicious.  I don’t even need to elaborate, because you already know if this is something you’re going to like or not.  :)  Cinder, Marie Sexton.  Enjoy.

I’d tried reading a Marie Sexton book before, and I didn’t like it.  I can’t remember why not, but I think it was probably the first person POV.  I’m going to give her a try again, because I really enjoyed this book.  In fact, after I finished I immediately started the other book she’s got up on Scribd, called Blind Space.  It’s a story about space pirates.  It’s set in a very Firefly universe, so I was totally digging it.  I probably liked it even more than Cinder, but seriously, gay Cinderella.  How can I not rec that?  But both of them are excellent.  Cinder and Blind Space.  Marie Sexton.  

Go forth and read.

Book Rec: Fatal Shadows by Josh Lanyon, of the Adrien English series

Josh Lanyon, prolific writer of gay mystery/romance/adventure novels.  Forty of his books are on Scribd.  My favorites were in the Adrien English mysteries series.  Adrien is a writer and owner of a quirky mystery bookstore in San Francisco, and an amateur sleuth.  Murder happens around Adrien all too often, and the police get suspicious - especially deep in the closet Detective Jake Riordan.  

The first book in the series is called Fatal Shadows.  Josh Lanyon.  Give it a shot.
