M/M contemporary 5 Meows 1 Purr
This is a bittersweet story. It is about a man (Mico) that barely survived a gay bashing. He is hooked up to a ventilator, feeding tube and catheter. It is also a story of a family sticking together and caring for the man instead of putting him in a skilled care facility. Danny is a journalist that finds love in a very unlikely place.
I gave it one purr because though it’s not sexual there is a very sensual scene.
I applaud for dealing with such a sensitive story and making it so beautiful and romantic. Though someone is disabled, they are still very human and have needs. BRAVO!

T A Chase s one of my auto-buy authors. I love the realistic characters.
In A Coal Miner’s son, James is a wealthy coal mine owner and Cai is a mine worker. It’s an awesome, rich/ man poor man story.
Block and Strike Kelly Jensen Published by Dreamspinner Press M/M Contemporary
4 meows 2 Purrs
I have only read a couple Kelly Jensen books, but she is heading right up there on my auto-buy too. This story does have some violence and is very angsty , But I absolutely loved it.
Max is found on Jake’s doorway beaten almost to death. Jake takes him to the hospital. Jake has his secrets as well. Block and strike is a lovely story of coming out, life and learning to trust and love.
MM Time Travel, Sci-FI
3 Meows 2 Purrs
This one is a short story about time travel. Not usually my cup of tea but it was cute. There is a robot bear that makes it all worth reading. It is a setup I think for a series and I am intrigued.
Smoke and Mirrors by Charlie Cochet Thirds book 7 narrated by Mark Westfield 10 hrs 42 minutes Audible
M/M, Genres Mystery/Suspense / Science Fiction / Urban Fantasy / Werewolves/Shapeshifters
This is book 7 of the series and the best yet. That’s saying a lot as each book was fantastic. If you’re looking for an excellent series whether to read or listen to I highly recommend this.
Smoke and Mirrors does start where the last story ended with Dex being kidnapped and tortured. There are many emotional moments in this story. I laughed and cried more in this than the others and again that’s saying a lot. There are many shocking twists, several tear-jerking moments, of course, lots fo hot man-sex and wow what an ending.

MM Standalone (Spires Universe) contemporary (kisses and touches no sex) 104 pages
Waiting for the flood is very poetic, and a short sweet romance. The narration made the book in my opinion. I could listen to Alexander Doddy all day.

Overall 4 Performance 5 story 4

The BlueBerry Boys by Vanessa North Tobias Silversmith Riptide Publishing Audible
4 story 4 performance 4 overall
Blueberry Boys is a short and sweet romance. It is about a country boy who is closeted and an out and proud city boy.
There is a scene with the sweetest love letter from Conner to Jed that brought tears to my eyes.
Friday night (Dec 30) we watched Vikings. All his Angels. Originally aired 12/28.
I hate to give such a violent story 5 meows, but I have to. What Radnor’s courage and strength to all the kings did to him was astounding. I think this was probably aired originally earlier in the week we DVR tv shows a lot to get out of the commercials.
This was a western. It was splendid but very violent. A cowboy’s son died from a snakebite and him nd his wife got into a fight causing the 17-year-old daughter to run away. She is kidnapped and sold into prostitution. The father goes to hell and back to rescue her. Kris Kristofferson had a small part. It also stars Trace Adkins and Michael Pare
I hope you enjoyed my week in review. I hope you find some good books to read an audio or movie. If you had a favorite this week, you would like to share, post in comments. I am always looking for good entertainment! See ya Next week!
