Only See You (Only Colorado #2) by J.D. Chambers

38227512 



“I might not be every gay man’s wet dream, but I always get a second look.”

Mal Copol knows who they are: Nonbinary. Awesome. Exhausted. They won’t change for anyone, but just once, they’d like to be the one with relationship potential, not the hookup. Also, not having to fight employers on who they are and how they present themselves would be nice. And while they’re at it, add not getting raised eyebrows at their high heels and tasteful makeup while discussing their latest rock-climbing trip to the wish list. Is that really too much to ask?

“Here I am at twenty-seven, embarking on life, version 2.0.”

Parker McWilliams is breaking free from the constraints of his former life and wife. He’s recapturing his zest to try new things and experience everything to the fullest, instead of the complacency he had fallen into over the past nine years. If one of those “new experiences” happens to be with a certain beautiful and intriguing nonbinary person, well, Parker’s just going to roll with it. Anything contrary to his past life is a good thing.

Mal and Parker keep surprising each other every time they meet. Despite their differences, neither has any interest in fighting their attraction. But when circumstances threaten to keep them apart, the couple must decide if that attraction is enough to overcome the obstacles they face.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars




This is my first time I read about a nonbinary person. I needed some adjustment about the mentioning 'them and person' for Mal. But it seemed I was adjusted just fine.
I liked Mal, a lot, they know themselves go for it. They didn't give a damn about what people see on them.
Good thing then, they met Parker. Oh, that sweet Parker, he's such a gem. I liked how he really care about Mal's feeling. This is a heartwarming and an eye opening, that some people still struggled and there are people out there who really care.
I enjoyed Mal and parker's relationship dynamic, this one is something that you won't miss!

ARC REVIEW : Contour (Shape of You #1) by Meg Harding

37660611 

Jamie “Roxy” Albright has one great love in his life and room for no other. He lives and breathes makeup. Men are nothing more than temporary distractions and romance… well, that isn’t worth his time. With a burgeoning career as a YouTube makeup artist opening doors to never before dreamed of opportunities, time isn’t something Jamie has and distractions aren’t something he can afford.

Instagram model and shirtless wonder Tyler Jackson is quickly falling for elusive Jamie. How it went from a seemingly innocent message to feelings, he’ll never know. Their chemistry is instant and fiery hot, and Tyler’s never been that good at self control. The challenges are endless, though. There’s Jamie’s walls to break through and a country worth of space between them. And just when things are starting to look up, life throws a wrench in the works.

This is a 'nowaday' story of two Instagram celebrities, between Tyler and Jamie. Two inta-celeb reminds me a lot of these guys... JOey and Danny boy. Le sigh.



This is a light adorable everyday story, very low angst, just the usual when two people falling in love and have to manage the long distance relationship.
Jamie never had a real relationship, never slept twice with one guy, and when he met Tyler, it's something like ' a shock culture' for Jamie, a whole new dimension of human relationship.
He tried though, because, man...Tyler is a dream come true.
And the most important thing, he adored Jamie with or without his make-up!
Never questioned Jamie's choices, he's just adored Jamie. Awww...
I loved the banters between them, especially the messages, it was funny, witty and very fresh.
My only complain is the making of make-up tutorial vlog, it felt too long (blame me, I don't wear make-up.LOL).
Overall, this is fun to read and enjoyable. I liked it.

RELEASE BLITZ AND ARC REVIEW : Power Play by Cara Dee

37844337 

Power Play 

Special Pre-order Price: $2.99

I was my own worst enemy. For as much as I depended on order and a structured life to easier manage my bipolar disorder, fire was irresistible and indisputably my favorite toy to play with. On the ice, it turned me into a hotheaded hockey player. In the bedroom, my attitude was my last defense, a front I wanted to see tumbling down. But lately, all I got was burned.

Love sucked. Correction: it sucked when you were in love with your parents’ closest friend and he didn’t feel the same. I admitted my feelings for Madigan Monroe over a year ago, and I was still waiting for a response. Now my balance was gone. My anxiety was all over the place, my fits of rage had just earned me a suspension from the team, I questioned myself at every turn, and being home for two weeks was gonna make it impossible to avoid Madigan.

I used to be his Abel, his sweetheart, his trouble. It’d been the two of us against the world since I was a kid. I’d even discovered we had kink in common! On paper, I was seemingly perfect for him. Maybe that was why his nonverbal rejection hurt so much. Or maybe it was because, recently, he seemed hell-bent on us “being friends” again.

Whatever. I was a loser, and I couldn’t resist him for crap.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


“I wasted two years believing my feelings for you were wrong—until you and your bravery knocked sense into me.”


Whooah, I didn't see it coming!

If there's anything to blame, blame Nutella. How could a six year old boy say no to Nutella, from his Daddy's best friend? Not a chance. I know Mad sounds like a pervert pedo at the time, but no.

No worries, he didn't 'interested in Abel' 'that way', not until at least after Abel nineteen.

But Abel knew he wanted to marry his Mad when he's twelve.

This is a BDSM daddy kink at his best, if you're not into this kind of book, consider this as a warning.
Mad is a type of Daddy Dom, he likes his Little obey him, and he wanted Abel.
Problem is, Abel is also his late best friend's son, that he knew since Abel was six year old boy.
One night Abel's 19th birthday party, his restraining came to loose, and even Abel was his whole world and he love Abel beyond reason, he need to stay away from Abel.
Which left Abel heart broken and felt abandoned.
Abel found his comfort with his best friend, Gray. Best friend and a bed fellow, that is.
But they'd never 'more', besides, they're both bottom, and not interested in romantic relationship.
But of course, love will fond the way, and at some point, they're reconnected again, and Abel is full aware for what kind of life he'll be going through with Mad by his side.
Life is about choices, and Abel chose Mad with all his 'preferences'. And he's never been happier.


I couldn't speak. My throat had closed up. All I could do was nod jerkily and press myself harder to his body.
He was warm and all comfort and protection.
This was my home.


Where's Gray left then?
This is the part that for some people (also me), would cringe, because there's a kink in a kink.
Mad and Abel never playing half hearted when it comes to their kink -> (view spoiler)


“I don’t think I can go back to pretending even if I tried. I’ll be your personal stalker until it hits me that this isn’t a dream.”


This is definitely NOT my drug of choice of books I read usually, but I found that I cannot put this book down, and glued to it until I finished it.

RELEASE BLITZ : DREAM (SKIND #1) BY GARRETT LEIGH



Universal Buy Link: books2read.com/DreamGL

Length: 60,000 words approx.

Cover Design: GDLeigh @Black Jazz Design

Cover Photo: Dan Burgess @Moonstock Photography

Blurb

I can’t sleep…

When unrequited love leaves Dylan Hart sleepless and nursing his wounds, instinct draws him to the one place he's found mindless respite in the past—Lovato’s. It’s a place for every fantasy — for crazy-hot encounters — where a night of insane NSA sex brings relief to Dylan’s fragile feelings.

It should be a perfect escape, and for one magical night it seems that way, but then worlds collide, and reality bites when his hookup desperately needs a friend. Surely Dylan can’t trust his instincts when friendship has bruised his heart so badly before?

It’s burying me alive…

The deck is stacked against former ballet dancer Angelo Giordano ever finding real love. At least visiting Lovato’s offers respite from a life defined by illness; a glimmer of light in the dull grey of his so-called life without dance. But then he encounters Dylan — a glorious ray of the brightest sunshine — who makes his heart pound once more with purpose.

Angelo’s mind is blown by this man, but the disease that ended his career won’t let him bask in new love. He’s drowning, and Dylan can’t save him while insecurities swamp them both. The only way to make it means confronting their demons.

If Dylan can turn his back on the past, and Angelo can face his uncertain future, maybe they can chase their dreams together.

Dream (Skins, #1)Dream by Garrett Leigh
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A heartbreaking story with a dirty filthy boys that only Garrett Leigh can do.
I adored Angelo and Dylan's life journey as much as I enjoyed their sexapade😍😍😍πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯


As Garrett said, this is a filthy book. Oh yeah, when Garret's being naughty, it's naughty to the max!
Met in a sex club a first time, nothing we can expect more that some kink, exhibitionism, and some more dirty. Dylan and Angelo are dirty, dirty boys. I didn't mind at all!
There's some soft BDSM, just a little D/s play, no blood shed whatsoever, I'm so okay with that.
Angelo and Dylan 'need' each other, they need to be someone else in that club.

They're still working on their dreams, not easy for both of them living and moving on with the baggage, but they made it eventually.
Dylan with his much needed moving on from his past love, and Angelo with his broken family business.
The sex is hot, sweaty, dirty and panty melt worthy, I promised you that.


Garrett Leigh fans NEED this book!

Trigger warning : If, you're not into sex club, kink, threesome, orgy, you better avoid this book.

REVIEW : Table for One by Connie Bailey

36611339 


Exposing his body for work is no problem, but after his heart’s been broken, putting it out there again won’t be so easy.

Up-and-coming young executives Copeland Shore and William Donnelly have been friends and sometimes more for years. For Cope’s birthday, Will plans a very special dinner—at a nantaimori restaurant where the most enticing thing is the table. Dai—the naked man beneath their sushi—has both their mouths watering, but when it comes to Dai’s heart, there’s only room at the table for one, and Will gets there first.

Will’s everything Dai thinks he wants in a man… until he’s betrayed. The betrayal also ends the friendship between Will and Cope and leaves Dai shaken and unsure if he can put his trust in another man—not even when a second chance for love and happiness rises from the ashes of the broken relationship. Cope wants to tempt Dai to take a risk with him, but the pain of the past is hard for Dai to shake off… and Cope has obstacles of his own to overcome.




 Table for OneTable for One by Connie Bailey
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

It's hard to like this book except for the gorgeous cover.
Everyone's stupid. Dai is stupid for assuming that Will is the the one he's looking for, Cope is stupid for trying to play mysterious, Will is an asshole the whole time. The only one I can stand is Harow, Dai's BFF. He's okay, better than anyone even.
And there's Brad, a guy between Will and Cope. It's actually Dai's sex marathon experience.
And it's boring.
I did some skimming through the last 50 percent mark and I didn't care if Cope and Dai got their HEA. It was a HFN, I'm not sure about their future though.
Sorry.
