Genre Contemporary / BDSM / Gay Erotic Romance
Reviewed by Serena Yates on 30-June-2013
Review Blurb This is a book about discovery and finding the courage to live the way you want and need to. Not just that of sexual orientation, but the D/s lifestyle and a partner at the same time, at least for Seth

No Man’s Land by G.S. Wiley at Silver Publishing

Genre Historical / 1920s / Gay Romance
Reviewed by Lena Grey on 01-July-2013
Review Blurb ‘No Man’s Land’ by G.S. Wiley is a short, endearing, yet sad story, but also, a story about hope. Even though it takes place in World War I, in many ways, it’s timeless.

A Rampant Hunger by James Cox at Evernight Publishing

Genre Science Fiction / Other Planets / Gay Menage Erotica / MMM
Reviewed by Serena Yates on 01-July-2013
Review Blurb This book can be taken in two very different ways. Either it is a hilarious, over-the top parody of every science fiction story ever written, or it is a slightly horrific setting for erotica that is actually pretty close to porn.

Molten 3: Molten Mayhem by Kira Stone at Changeling Press

Genre Science Fiction / Aliens / Interspecies / Gay Erotic Romance
Reviewed by Serena Yates on 02-July-2013
Review Blurb This return to the Molten world was as fascinating as the first two visits. Just to recap, the aliens in this series of stories are amazing, metal-based changelings with a few extra abilities.

Caesar’s Fall (Elliott Smith 3) by Dorien Grey at Zumaya Boundless

Genre Contemporary / Paranormal Elements / Gay Mystery
Reviewed by Lena Grey on 02-July-2013
Review Blurb We all dream of how wonderful winning the lottery would be, but in truth, it can be more of a curse than a blessing. No one knows this better than Bruno Caesar of ‘Caesar’s Fall’ by Dorien Grey.

Bryce’s Cop (Hot Encounters 2) by Toni Griffin at Silver Publishing

Genre Paranormal / Vampires / Werewolves / Gay Erotic Romance
Reviewed by Serena Yates on 03-July-2013
Review Blurb As short and fun as the first volume, with quite a bit of testosterone-driven stubbornness thrown in for good measure, this sequel to ‘Frankie’s Vamp’ is the story of over 400-year-old vampire Bryce.

Genre Fantasy / Magic / Contemporary Setting / Gay Erotic Romance
Reviewed by Lena Grey on 03-July-2013

Whipped Cream by Andrew Grey at Dreamspinner Press

Genre Contemporary / Gay Romance
Reviewed by Serena Yates on 04-July-2013
Review Blurb Just like the picture on the cover, at first glance, this book is about having a bit of naughty fun. It made me smile and it made me laugh, but that was just the surface.

Black Point (Black Point 1) by A.J. Llewellyn and D.J. Manly at Mojocastle Press

Genre Contemporary / Gay Erotic Romance
Reviewed by Serena Yates on 04-July-2013
