Megan Erikson & Santino Hassell--Strong Signal

Megan Erickson & Santino Hassell: Strong Signal

This book was an absolute pleasure to read. Having read–and in some cases, reread–just about everything by Santino Hassell (remaining reviews of which I hope to find the motivation for soon) and enjoying all of it, I was dabbling in some other writers’ offerings, but fiendin’ for something new by Hassell all the while. I […]

Santino Hassell--Sunset Park

Santino Hassell: Sunset Park

This is the second book of Santino Hassell’s Five Boroughs series and of the three I’ve read so far, this is by far my favorite. I’ve only read it from cover to cover once, but I have gone back and read the last three chapters a few times and right now I’m skipping through the story […]

Santino Hassell--Sutphin Boulevard

Santino Hassell: Sutphin Boulevard

This is the first book of Santino Hassell’s Five Boroughs series. I thoroughly enjoyed Hassell’s unrelated novel, Stygian, so I wanted to check out his other offerings. And thank goodness I did. Throughout their youth through college and into their careers as teachers, Michael and Nunzio have been joined at the hip. Nunzio–gay and disowned–has been […]

{GuiltPleasure} Eqilibrium - Side A

Guilt|Pleasure: Equilibrium – Side A

This is an illustrated prequel novel for In These Words. I suppose I saw this coming and it feels like the beginning of the end. David introduces Katsuya to someone from his past, a man named M. M runs a BDSM outfit and, while it isn’t clear how the meeting came about, it is clear that […]

{GuiltPleasure} In These Words v01

Guilt|Pleasure: In These Words V01-V02

I first read In these Words V01 back in June of 2012; I continued on to chapter eight and then stopped. The Redux arc starts with chapter nine, so until now I only had the vaguest of idea of what was truly going on in the story. Last night I read the 2015 edition of […]

Nishida Higashi--Kimi ga Boku no Subete V01

Nishida Higashi: Kimi ga Boku no Subete V01-V02

She really knows how to kill me. I’ve been waiting to read this for almost two years! Even though there was a big “1” on the cover the first time I ran across this title, I didn’t realize there was more than one volume. Nabeshima is jobless and loveless when a friendly and apologetic gesture […]

{Tachibana Venio & Takarai Rihito} Seven Days- Monday-Thursday

Tachibana Venio & Takarai Rihito: Seven Days

I got around to rereading Seven Days and I’m still not moved by it. Reading it this time was like reading it for the first time–I don’t think I remembered much of anything about it (especially Shino). I do remember thinking it was slow and that’s pretty much how I feel about it now, the […]

Takaichi, who is reserved, patient, and thoughtful and Okuya, who is shy, nervous, and earnest, are just starting out in their relationship. They are so early in the relationship and Okuya’s so new at the whole interacting with people […]
