Time Bring Back to Time by samyazaz

Connor receives news that Oliver has been in an accident. Even though they're not on speaking terms, he's willing to do anything, even fake a relationship, to ensure Oliver is okay and well taken care of.

This fic was written during season one when the Coliver relationship was still very much in the air. I enjoyed taking this step back in time, even with a AU story, and reliving some of the struggles Oliver and Connor endured. Definitely give this story a shot. You won't be disappointed!

I ❤️ Yaoi: Two Strip Tease by Tata (Free! Doujinshi)

Rei and Nagisa are enjoying their time in college and in their relationship. They're happy, but they also want their best friends, Makoto and Haru to be happy as well. The penguin and butterfly are determined to do their best and make it happen!

This is a really sweet dj. Nagisa and Rei and so adorable that my heart melted. Nagisa's perverted yet innocent nature is a great juxtoposition that made me chuckle on several occasions. I wish more could have been explored regarding Makoto and Haru's storyline, but all in all, this was an enjoyable read.

Oil on Water by MadamPuddifoot9

Oil on Water by MadamPuddifoot9

Magnus and Alec have reconciled, but still have some issues to work through. Alec suggests they take things slowly, but for two people who are so passionate and head over heels in love, is that even possible?

Over the past two weeks, I've read plenty of reconciliation Malec stories, but this one surprised me. Not only does the author explore the realistic feelings, insecurities and regrets both men share, but they also took it to a place that had my heart thundering in my chest. I don't want to give away what that is, but I'm sure you'll feel the same way. *wink*

Book Review: Year One (Would It Be Okay to Love You?) by Amy Tasukada

An robot fanboy. An erotic voice actor. Will their secrets overwhelm their love?

Sato doesn’t get out much. The anime company accountant spends his days at a desk and his nights working on his own small-scale robots. His geeky life is like a dream, but it has just one piece missing…

The world only knows Aoi for his moans. The erotic voice actor has legions of fangirls obsessed with his gasps of simulated ecstasy. And his new boyfriend Sato can barely handle the attention.

As Aoi’s popularity rises and secrets about his past begin to reveal themselves, can the accountant and the voice actor rise above their problems to create something real?

This is a sweet, "slice of life" story about two men traversing through life and their relationship. Both characters are very likeable and there is very little angst. The book basically consists of small moments in their relationship put on display for readers to enjoy. I must admit that I really enjoyed learning about cheese and honey pizza. I never thought about putting honey on pizza before, but after reading this book, I definitely want to try! I felt like the book ended kind of abruptly and left me with questions, especially regarding Sato's parents. Maybe this is going to be a series and we'll find out more in "Year Two".

I received a copy of this book from the author and voluntarily provided my honest review.

The Boogeyman by I_Still_Believe_In_Heros123

The Boogeyman by I_Still_Believe_In_Heros123

Alec just wanted to have a good life, but outside forces keep pulling him back into a world that at one time served a purpose, but has now become stale and unsatisfying. When tragedy strikes, he is forced to return to his old life to exact vengeance. Along the way, he meets someone who could be the one to heal his heart once and for all.

I absolutely loved this story! If you're a fan of the John Wick movies, you are in for a real treat! Seeing Alec as the most feared and respected assassin in the world is really cool, and, as always, I couldn't help but fall in love with Magnus. Don't underestimate him, though. He just as much of a BAMF, and I loved every moment! Definitely give this one shot a try if you're in the mood for action, suspense, UST and romance!

One hot cop. One bar owner out for redemption. One smoking-hot summer fling destined to leave scorch marks…

Mason Hanks has returned to Rainbow Cove, Oregon with one goal in mind: turn the struggling coastal community into a thriving LGBTQ tourism destination. Step one is transforming an old bar and grill into a gay-friendly eatery. Step two? Don’t piss off Nash Flint, the very hot, very stern chief of police who’s not so sure he’s on board with Mason’s big plans.

Nash Flint just wants to keep his community safe and enjoy the occasional burger in peace. He’s not big on change nor is he a fan of Mason’s troublemaking family, especially his rowdy older brothers. But Mason slowly wins him over with fantastic cooking and the sort of friendship Nash has been starving for.

When their unlikely friendship takes a turn for the sexy, both men try to steer clear of trouble. Nash believes he’s too set in his ways for Mason, and Mason worries that his family’s reputation will ruin any future with Nash. Burning up the sheets in secret is a surefire way to crash and burn, and discovery forces a heart-wrenching decision—is love worth the risk of losing everything?

Trust with a Chaser is a 75,000 word stand-alone gay romance with a May/December theme, a hot law-enforcement hero, opposites attract, plenty of sexy times, and one hard-fought, guaranteed happy ending with no cliffhangers.
