    • I got a signed copy of Beneath the Stain as gift from Bethany and have been smiling at the book for a while now, but the anticipation has reached a point where I just cannot resist any longer. I can feel it in my bones – this book will be awesome. Same thing with Scorpion. I have saved it for the right time and I really want a well-written fantasy, now ๐Ÿ™‚ โค


    • The new Wade Kelly book does look great. You might want to look on the blog tomorrow. The author drops by with a wonderful guest post and the chance to really become a part of an upcoming book. โค


  1. Definitely read Beneath the Stain first. It’s a must! ๐Ÿ™‚ So many of these are on my “to read” pile for this year, but out of the ones I’ve read. Sinner’s Gin, Pinned, and Back to You are my top recs. Happy New Year!

    • I do have Sinner’s Gin as audiobook, Back To You and Beneath the Stain waiting for me as paperbacks and Pinned as eBook on my kindle. I think I have some good times ahead ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I’ve read quite a few on your list already, some I liked, some I didn’t. The one that stands out a little is Abi Roux’s Gravediggers Brawl. I haven’t thought of that one in a while, but I remember enjoying it. Also looks like you haven’t read Josh Lanyon or Rhys Ford’s latest books. Those were good. I only got partially through with Beneath The Stain but ended up taking a break for something a little more upbeat.
    Have a great New Year! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I heard amazing things about ‘The Gravedigger’s Brawl’. It has been mentioned as Favorite All-Time M/M book by some friends, so I’m really curious. Must admit I have not read any Rhys Ford books yet, but I need to fix that ASAP. I have read a lot of Josh Lanyon books recently and I’m falling more in love with his writing with every book ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great New Year as well!


  3. Oh there are some really great books listed. I think you should wait until February or March to read Ball & Chain since the last book is suppose to be released at the end of March. Walk with Me as was Fair Play was pretty good. Life After Death made me so sad after Paris is gone. Roan was so grief ridden just saying…

    I’m a fan of Cardeno C and Josh Lanyon so my opinion may have been a bit bias, lol. River Jaymes also write a great book but I wasn’t as happy with the second book in the series as I was with the first. I would vote for going with N.R. Walker, Arshad Ahsanuddin (world building and complexed storyline, yum make you think although I haven’t read this series yet, haha..), and Charlie Cochet.

    • I might wait with Ball & Chain, but then there are a few spin-offs I have not read yet. I might be able to read it and survive by reading the other books in the same world. lol

      I listened to books 1-6 of the home series back to back, so ‘Walk With Me’ is a must. And if Fair Play is anything like its prequel, I need to read it badly *g*

      I’m a glutton for punishment, so not sure how long I can resist to continue with the Infected series. Book two already left me sad, really want Roan to find life again!

      Loved ‘The Back-Up Boyfriend’. Not a big fan of a certain friend featured as MC in the follow-up, but really curious how River will try to make me care for and love him.

      Have not read N.R. Walker yet, but I hear amazing things.

      Book one of the Pact Arcanum series was brilliant. I think the fact that book two is going back in time kind of held me off, but I really want to continue the series!

      And well, read the first two Thirds books and thus the next one is a must. Though I hear the third cliffhanger is the worst…


    • Fostered Love first caught my attention with the beautiful cover, but it really seems to be a great book. ๐Ÿ™‚ Meremen intrigue me. Stealing the Wind will be an interesting read, I’m sure! ๐Ÿ˜‰

      The Mating of Michael is on part two of my list. I’m an assistant for handicapped people. One of them had just come out as bi when I assisted him and I realized how many problems gay people with disabilities have to face. Someone told me I had to read this book.

      Just finished the Morning Report series and loved it, so I’ll put ‘The Sky is Dead’on my TBR ๐Ÿ˜€
