Different Perspectives by peloquine

Different Perspectives by peloquine

Duro doesn't know how to feel about all of his big brother's attention being placed on his new boyfriend.

This is an interesting look at how things could have gone if Duro had lived and eventually met Nasir. Even though this is a modern au, the feelings and emotions remain the same. Many people in the fandom believe that Nasir and Duro would hit it off immediately (I'm one of those people); however, this story shows what would
happen if Duro really didn't like Nasir when he breezed into the German brothers' lives.

Definitely give this story a try! I know you'll enjoy it!

Funk by samwhambam

Funk by samwhambam

Oliver's life is comfortable. He has a nice house, a nice husband and a nice life; but he feels empty inside. He's no longer in love with his husband, but also doesn't want to leave him. When a handsome stranger throws his life into a tailspin, Oliver begins to question whether his safe, comfortable life is really all it's cracked up to be.

I've really enjoyed this story so far. It's interesting to watch the dynamic between Oliver and Connor vs. Oliver and his husband, and the author really makes you root for a Coliver union. We're still only a few chapters in, but I look forward to seeing how this story unfolds!

Agron and Nasir meet when Nasir's family moves on to the base where they become fast friends. Agron doesn't think he could ever find a friend as wonderful as Nasir again.

This is a seriously adorable one shot! It's a very quick read, so I don't want to give away too much of the plot, but I know you'll enjoy it! Give it a try!

Blog Tour & GIVEAWAY: The Senator's Secret by K.C. Wells

K.C. Wells - The Senator's Secret

Author: K.C. Wells

Release Date: September 1, 2016

Length: 220 pages


When his Republican opponent outs him with a photo in a Facebook post, Senator Samuel Dalton doesn’t have many options open to him. It doesn’t matter that the photo was totally innocent. He has no choice but to come clean – until his staff suggest putting a spin on it that leaves Sam reeling.

Sure, he’d end up with a lot of sympathy, not to mention the possibility of more voters from the LGBT community, but it still seems a pretty drastic solution.

Now all they have to do is persuade Gary, the other man in the photo, to play along. It sounds so easy - convince the constituents of North Carolina that he and Sam are engaged.

No big deal, except for the fact that they’ve only just met…

Book Review: Connection Error (#gaymers 3) by Annabeth Albert

When Josiah sits next to Ryan on cross country flight to Washington, D.C., sparks fly and they have an instant connection. Both men are currently dealing with their own issues, Ryan is a double amputee trying to get back into active military duty and Josiah suffers from ADHD and a fear of stepping out on his own, so they have no time for a relationship, but they just can't help but be drawn to each other. Will their differences bring them closer together or push them farther apart?

Annabeth Albert's #gaymers series has been a win for me so far. We're three books in and I've enjoyed each one thoroughly. This story really tugged on the heartstrings while bringing attention to the different challenges, mentally, physically and emotionally, people face every day. Josiah is a complete sweetheart that I really rooted for, and Ryan was the perfect alpha male who can take charge and get things done, but also exhibit tenderness. There were certainly times when I wanted to shake each man, tell him to "snap out of it" and just talk, but watching their journey was all part of the fun. I highly recommend this book. It can be read as a standalone, but reading the previous two books will help you with some of the background characters.

4.5 stars

All Things Change by edge_lord

                                                      All Things Change by edge_lord

After moving into his apartment, Makoto can't help but feel homesick and a little scared. However, he can always count on Haru to make him feel safe and happy.

This one-shot is a great mix of fluff, angst and heat! I loved how Haru seemed to innately know that his best friend needed him. Your heart (and screen) will probably melt by the end of this quick read. Give it a try!
