A little recommended reading...

I've been doing entirely too much reading lately. Because of that, I thought I'd share some of my recent favorites.

The Rest of Our Lives by Dan Stone

Colm McKenna has led a guarded life. Gifted with a wintry soul and a photographer’s eye, he can stop time as easily as he freezes water, or call down cold north winds. He thinks he is alone and unique in the world. Then, seemingly by accident, he meets writer Aidan Gallagher, his opposite, a young man who quickens Colm’s heart as magically as heats the air.

In this lighthearted, gay romantic fantasy, can two male witches whose passion reincarnates century after century, find a way to express their love for each other again? Can this enchanting pair finally succeed after so many lifetimes?

Matter of Time Books 1-4 by Mary Calmes

Jory Keyes spends his time drinking and cruising gay bars picking up one night stands. Then suddenly he becomes the only witness to a brutal murder. Although the killer vows to silence him, Jory refuses to go into witness protection. This puts him into conflict with Sam Kage, a very straight and very hot police detective. When passion flares between the two men, Sam is astonished. Is he really gay? And if so, what will this mean to his career, and his life? As the danger threatening Jory increases, Sam senses that nothing is as it seems, and wonders who is really after his newfound and forbidden love?

The Manny by Sara Bell

Tate Fuller's life is a God-awful mess. He's flat broke, his dead lover's parents are suing him again and his asshat landlord A.J. Boyd is evicting him from his bike shop, the one constant in Tate's life. He's starting to think things will never look up when sees an ad in the paper for a night and weekend nanny. So what if the guy who's doing the hiring is none other than A.J. himself, or if A.J. makes Tate's blood heat with something other than anger?

After having his wife dump him because she claimed a bisexual man could never be faithful, A.J. Boyd has stopped being surprised when life throws him curve balls. Stopped being surprised, that is, until he finds out his ex-wife has died and left him with a six-week old daughter he didn't even know he had. Now he's sleep-deprived, scared stiff, and ready to do something really stupid, like hire the stubborn, infuriating, cocky Tate. And if the tension between them's hot enough to restart the Chicago fire, well, so be it.

Fun with Dick and Shane by Gillibran Brown

These pages detail the days of my life as houseboy, partner and submissive to my Daddies, Dick and Shane. They’re both older than I am and they treat me horribly, chain me, beat me, keep me short of food and water…NAH, I’m just kidding. We share an unusual relationship it’s true, and in that respect this book is suitable only for adults over the age of eighteen, as it often makes reference to sex and consensual discipline practices within a ménage relationship...step inside and enjoy!

I brought Matter of Time last night after seeing a rec on goodreads. It sounds cool! :)

I really enjoyed the series, although I think it should come with a warning or something. The four books aren't separate stories, but rather like one long book sliced and diced into four sections. You really have to buy all four and read them back to back unless you're good with cliff hangers.

The Rest of our Lives sounds like it's just what I've been looking for. Thanks for the tip!

The Rest of our Lives is adorable. Cute and quirky as can be.

Thanks for recommendating Gillibran Brown. After reading a lengthy excerpt at smashwords, I picked it a up and was thoroughly entertained by the antics of "Gil the brat". A truly hidden treasure that would have otherwise passed me by ;-)

You're very welcome, Krissy. It's not something I normally would have picked up either, but the blurb was just too cute to resist and I ended up really liking it. According to his website, it looks like there might be another book on the way. I certainly hope so. It was a fun change from all the angsty romance. :D
