Review for Secretly, Secretly by Bianca De Sanctis



Title: Secretly, Secretly
Release Date
Author:  Bianca De Sanctis
Genre:  Historical contemporary romance, LGBT
Length: 74 pages
Publisher:  Silverstream Press
Meows: 5
Purrrs: Low
Blurb:  Told alongside a series of flashbacks, 'Secretly, Secretly' is a historical romance that explores the relationship between two young men of vastly different upbringings, as they attempt to overcome the social norms that separate them.

How close can two people be?

It is the question Elijah Livingston has always wondered, and there's no one he would rather discover the answer with than his former servant and best friend, Gabriel. But Gabriel took flight of the Livingston estate, and with him went Elijah's hope of whatever future they might hold together. Eight years later, Elijah has the chance to win him back, and he won't stop until Gabriel is his again. In a time when nothing is more precious than a secret or more dangerous than a scandal, can master and servant find happiness in each other?

Review: Gabriel always knew he had feelings for Elijah his master and best friend, but he always felt he wasn’t good enough for him. To be with him he had to be an equal, nothing else would do though deep down he knew he would do absolutely anything for Elijah.
This was an absolutely beautiful story of two men that showed their love in very different ways in a time when two men could never be together as more than Master/ Slave of friends.  The way the story is told in flashbacks and newspaper clippings is ingenious. This story left me sighing and breathless. I hope it does you too.
Recommendations: If you like historical romance, stories of friends to lovers, lost love reunited, and secret this one is for you!

Reviewer: Cat
Review: Luke is an American exchange student in Ireland. He finds a coin in his gardens and is warned by his roommates to be careful of keeping leprechaun gold but he doesn’t  pay them any mind. He doesn’t believe in leprechauns but can a vivid dream change that?
This was a very cute happy short story that put a smile on my face.  As in most really short stories there isn’t a lot of character development and I would have loved to know Luke and his roomies all better. The plot those were both funny and fast. The only issue I had with it was the time between Fae world and the real world confused me just a little.  But over all I loved it!
Recommendations: If you like magic, leprechauns, folklore, and a short fun read sure to make you smile try this one!

Blurb: Patrick is happy until a stranger steps into his garden and into his life.
Patrick Trafford is pleased with the simple life he has, spending his time tending a tiny garden accompanied by his best friend, Chad, a cockroach. Nevertheless, he can’t hide the excitement bubbling in him as a man suddenly appears in the garden.
Damien Abner politely welcomes, albeit somewhat at a loss, Patrick’s warm offer to spend time with him. To have a coffee, watch some movie, and dance along with the characters in it.
They begin to date and Patrick has never been happier, though he barely knows who Damien is–not that it matters to him. For him, being clueless does mean bliss.


:Reviewer: Cat
Review:  Patrick likes his life simple, tending his gardens and talking to his best friend a cockroach he calls chad. Damien appears one day and  Patrick can’t hide his happiness until one day Damien doesn't return. Looking for Damien unravels some secrets Patrick isn't sure he wants to know.
 I loved this story It is sad and sweet at the same time.  I can’t say a lot without  giving it away since it is very short but it will definitely; leave you wanting more. I would have liked to know more about both characters and even more of Patrick’s past. I would love to read this as a full length story
Recommendations: If you like gardening, short stories about men with some secrets you will love this.

Review for Silver Spoon by Cheyenne Meadows



Title: Silver Spoon
Series Wind Warriors book 5
Release Date: March 9 1013
Author: Cheyenne Meadows
Genre:  M/F contemporary romance. Action /Adventure
Length: 213 pages
Publisher: Silver Publishing
Meows: 4
Purrrs: low sexual content
Blurb: Believing no woman could hold his interest, Spoon feels the weight of bachelorhood settle heavily on his shoulders until he stumbles across an author book signing.

Riley is a part time romance writer who never expects to find a man to live up to the heroes in her books. Instead, she pushes through life on her own terms, happily single.

Just when they start to develop feelings for one another, fragmented family relationships come to a head and danger lurks right around the corner, threatening to end not only their budding relationship, but their lives as well.

Will they conquer the challenges and come together in love or will events out of their control tear them apart forever?

Reviewer: Cat
Review: I love this cover!  Spoon is a member of the Wind warriors and loves his job. His father wants him to run his company but he has no interest. He is very frugal and likes his playboy lifestyle. Then one day he runs into Riley. Literally. 
Riley is rather average in looks. She is a writer and works at the gym he frequents.
This story had a lot of potential. As a contemporary romance it was really very good. Both characters were very likeable but I felt a lot of it was repetitive. What really threw me off was its also labeled action adventure. With Spoon’s secretive job there were all sorts of possibilities of action and I waited. It was pretty much brushed over.  I would have loved to see a bit of danger and intrigue that would easily present itself with Spoons occupation.  But still as a romance it was very romantic and Spoon is every girls dream man. Well he would be mine.
Recommendations: If you like a good romance, buff men, sexy secret agent type men, pretty redhead heroines, dogs,  and  finding ones true love this one is  for you!

Reviewer:  Cat
Review:  Trisha runs out in the road and gets hit by a car and ends up in the hospital with amnesia. A man from her past comes and finds her, though she remembers him her memories are vague. As memories unfold they unleash a troubled past with her sister and lots of drama and twists.
Wow This was a very amazing story most people will think it’s so horrific and  that nothing like this really could exist in our society but boy are they wrong.. Being one of those survivors this one really hit close to home and I could really sympathize and empathize with Tricia. Eddie is one heck of a man to stand by her through all these twists and yes there are a lot of them I promise nice you pick this up you won’t want to put it down until you are done!!   I do want to say I wish it told more about  what happened to the kids  that hit her . 

Recommendations: If you like a different story with hard to read content such as rape, violence or daily struggles of an unpleasant past, horrific stories you just don’t  want to believe could be real, lots of twists and turns you really must read this.  Also if you or someone you know are dealing with rape I would suggest reading this one also.

review for Sable Does it in the Kitchen by Sable Hunter


Title:  Sable Does it in The Kitchen
Author:  Sable Hunter
Genre:  cookbook
Length: 249 pages
Publisher: Sable hunter / self-published
Warnings: don’t read the excerpts and try to make a recipe at the same time. This could result in bodily harm or burnt food.
Meows: 5
Purrrs: no sex  but the excerpts are spicy
Blurb: Sable Hunter does more than write racy romance novels, she can also cook! 

Many fans have asked for recipes that were mentioned in her books - so here are some of them, there are also recipes included that were given to her by author friends and fans.
 
Sable's dishes are made with a southern flair that only those native to certain parts of the South can conjure, as Sable has spent her life in Texas and Louisiana, home of some of the greatest cuisines in the world!
 
Inside you will find several of Sable's favorite dishes from Grilladas, Gumbo and
Etoufee to a Pork Loin stuffed with Cajun Boudain. If you keep reading you'll find the secret McCoy Recipe for their fool-proof smoked brisket which is showcased in her Hell Yeah! Series.
 
As you progress through the cookbook, you'll find various links provided that will take you to the places where you can buy things like Tony Chachere's Cajun Seasoning, as well as the smoker used to cook some of these dishes.
 
You'll find the recipes are divided into Sections called 'Savory' for meat and vegetable dishes, and 'Sweeter' for desserts. These terms are a play on words about her books. Sable had become known for her steamy, savory romances, but the story-line has always been the most important element. So as to appeal to a wider audience, she will be releasing her Hell Yeah! books in a 'Sweeter' version in 2013 with the same emotional story and characters, but with a little less risqué material.
 
Inside 'Sable Does It in the Kitchen' there is PG excerpts of her work, if you'd like to take a peek, as well as links to her website and other places you might find Sable on the web. Over 60 Recipes and excerpts are not the only things you'll find; at the back there are a couple of surprises - 'future glimpses' of her work, as well as printable Tags and Bookmarks.

Reviewer: Cat
Review: This is a great collection of very easy to do and useable recipes. I loved how there were excerpts from her books worked in also. It definitely made  me want to read them. I will be trying several of the recipes also!

Review: Harley drinks too much on his 25th birthday and does the stupid thing of driving. He ends up with broken legs, arms, and one leg amputated.  His Family doesn’t have much to do with him but his best friend Dave helps him out. Dave is a salmon fisherman and has to go on the boat so he has a friend to check in with him. Tabby is a nurse and use to dealing with people with an attitude like Harley they become close friends and both think maybe more when Dave comes home.
This was a very good well written story of a man that is about to give up on life. It really hit home with me since I am facing some life changing issues but nothing like completely losing a leg. it made me feel ashamed of my pity party’s and  want to try harder. What a great inspirational story.

Review for A Model Romance by Michael P Thomas



Title: A Model Romance
Release Date:  March 10 2013
Author:  Michael P. Thomas
Genre:  Contemporary MM
Length: 6,962  
Publisher:  JMS Books
Meows: 3
Purrrs: explicit
Blurb:  When Bridger Bradford chases the wrong guy to South Korea, he falls in love ... with his fantasies about Kai, a model whose handsome mug is splashed across every subway station and bus shelter in the country.

Kai has a big career and big money, but what he really wants is a shot at big, blond Bridger, who can't believe his luck when the man of his dreams seemingly walks out of the stack of souvenir magazines and right up to him in his favorite San Francisco bar.
Review:  Kai went to South Korea and quickly became a modeling sensation. Bridger went to South Korea on a trip to follow the man of his dreams to find that he fell in love with the hot model Kai, but only in his dreams as they never met. Then one day he is at the local bar and sees a dead ringer for Kai and the man is checking him out so he decides to go for it.
I thought this story was cute. The way Bridger was infatuated with Kai though seemed quite stalkerish for a man of his age.  But all in the entire story was funny hot and sweet.
Recommendations: If you like short snappy stories, models, jocks and hot mansex you will like  this one.
