As you may or may not know, I do a lot of reading. I read everyday and my “to be read” list on my iPad gets longer and longer every time I look at it. Chances are I’ll never see it empty!
Recently, I decided to share some of the fun books I’ve recently been reading (or re-reading as the case may be) and since my first post was well received, I thought I’d do it again. I’ll probably do this every few weeks, so keep an eye out for them if you enjoy book recommendations 🙂
“Footsteps In The Dark” by various authors (Anthology)
An anthology of M/M romance/mysteries from some of the best authors in the genre, including Josh Landon, C. S. Poe and more, Footsteps is an amazing collection of riveting stories. At around 1100 pages, this book is extraordinary value for money (the eBook version I got on Apple Books was around AU$6.00) considering the high quality of this production. The stories are clever, thought provoking, wildly different from each other and hard to put down.
I know I’m being slightly vague here, but I don’t want to spoil anything. This is a book worth savouring. Enjoy one story at a time. Make it last. If you love romance and mysteries – this is a must buy. You won’t regret it!
“A Matter Of Time” by Mary Calmes
The first book in a 6 book series, A Matter Of Time is one of my favourite series to revisit, and I have read these books over and over. The characters are wonderful, the plots are intelligent and Mary Calmes’ humour and wit are wonderfully woven throughout these pages.
Jory Keyes was just doing a favour for a friend, but ends up accidentally witnessing a murder AND screwing up an undercover police operation in the process. He meets Detective Sam Kage, a huge brooding wall of muscles, who tries to put Jory into protective custody and witness protection, but Jory is having none of it.
Jory just wants to do his job, hang out with his friends and continue with his life like there aren’t a bunch of people out to kill him. Sam Kage begins following Jory everywhere, but is the straight detective who swears too much just looking out for his witness? Or does he have a more personal interest in keeping Jory safe?
This series is fantastic, and reading all the way through is very rewarding. The character development is genuine and the interactions between Jory and Sam are fun, intimate and hotter than hell! Highly recommended.
“Cowboy Sandwich” by Drew Hunt
This one is hot and seriously fun to read. It’s one I love to revisit now and again because it’s just so darn enjoyable. If you love cowboys, you’ll love this and it’s sequel.
When Englishman Barry Logan’s car breaks down in Middle-Of-Nowhere, Colorado, he wasn’t expecting it to change his life forever. He’s always had a thing for cowboys, and when he meets two hot and sexy cowboy ranchers at a local bar, he suddenly finds himself offering himself to them! Next thing he knows, he’s being driven back to their ranch for a night of double cowboy lovin’.
But when morning comes around , Barry discovers things are not going well at the Double J ranch. The cook has just quit, and the cowboys along with their ranch hands couldn’t be more hopeless in the kitchen. Barry steps in and makes breakfast, better than anything the old cook ever made, and is instantly offered the job of ranch cook. The job doesn’t pay much, but it definitely comes with some sizeable fringe benefits!
But what happens when Barry’s car is repaired and it’s time to return to his real life?
I just LOVE this book (and it’s sequel) and I can’t recommend it enough!
Well that’s all, folks! I’ll do another “recommended reads” post soon 🙂
Lots of Love
