THE BROKEN H by J.L. Langley

THE BROKEN H by J.L. Langley

Description: When Sheriff Grayson Hunter is called back to his ancestral home, The Broken H, he has no idea he’s really getting a call to fall back in love with its handsome Apache foreman, Shane Cortez. The Good: This couple is easy to root for, and Ms. Langley pays a lot of attention to developing their relationship in and out of bed. I loved that Shane wore glasses and had really long hair — both of which drove Grayson crazy with desire. Ms. Langley gives this couple several interesting obstacles, including a 13-year age gap and a secret past. Also, there definitely isn’t any skimping on the sex. This book is chock full of it. The Bad: Way too many typos, and plot threads — a few of which don’t get wrapped up or are resolved in a...

ON CALL: AFTERNOON by P.D. Singer

ON CALL: AFTERNOON by P.D. Singer

Description: When Keith, the new single doctor in town, meets sexy black veterinarian, Dante, he’s way to shy to make a first move. Can his cat, Harpo, bring them together? The Good: I adore vets in real life and wish they’d be used more in romance. Ms. Singer does a good job of making Dante vulnerable (he’s got cat scratch fever), while keeping him attractive in the opening scenes. The romantic build up to sex is sweet and awkward, and the couple is very well-matched. Also, the cat at the center of the story is quite a character. If you love cats, you will love this story. The Bad: Ms. Singer doesn’t manage to overcome the curse of short stories. The characters are too good for the story length, and many readers will come out of this...

KNOCKING BOOTS by J.M. Snyder

Description: Johnny thinks he’s the only ranch hand who likes guys, but then he catches a Mexican migrant worker named Delfino with the ranch boss. Can Johnny find a way to hook up with the sexy vaquero, too? The Good: The sex was H.O.T. And Delfino was written very sexy. The Bad: This story is extremely short for its price point. And the end isn’t particularly satisfying. Though tagged as a gay interracial romance, it isn’t very romantic. The Naughty: Erotic. Peeping Tom.

THREE BULLETS by Tasha D-Drake

THREE BULLETS by Tasha D-Drake

Description: Bae, a young half-Korean Englishman, needs to make a little money to escape his small town, so he takes a job person sitting Steve, the temporarily blind brother of Jim Jones. Neither brother is quite what he seems, and Bae’s boring job takes a turn for the steamy. The Good: I really liked Bae, and Steve was a hoot. The sex was very hot. It’s a very compelling and quick read. The Bad: Though I found this novel through a search for interracial gay romance, it’s not quite that. Also, the cover is kind of horrible. The Naughty: Erotic, explicit language, menage. Editing issues: Minor. Two typos. Publisher: Wittengen Press Length: Short Story Final Grade: C+ Click on the book cover to buy at Amazon for $0.99.

ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK by Gale Stanley

ONE NIGHT IN BANGKOK by Gale Stanley

Description: After getting dumped by his boyfriend, who also happens to be his boss, an American attorney travels to Thailand on business. Here he meets an enticing-but-secretive young man name Kai, and starts to let down his guard. But eventually Kai’s secret explodes and threatens to take their relationship out with it. The Good: This is a very sweet read with lots of mystery and plot. It’s perfect for m/m romance virgins who may want to dip their toes in the water of this genre with a sensual read as opposed to plunging in with an erotic one. Kai was a very compelling love interest and I was cheering for him throughout. I also loved the character detail of Kai being late all the time. The Bad:  The price point of $3.99 felt to this reader like a...
