True, the highly anticipated wedding between Logan Mitchell and Tate Morrison is coming December 21st!


True (Temptation #6) by Ella Frank

Publishing Date: December 21st, 2017

Genre: Contemporary MM Romance

Designer: Shanoff Designs

Photographer: Chris Davis at Specular Photography

Model: Adam Cowie

A Note from Ella:

To all my wonderful readers,
I know I had originally stated that TRUE (Temptation Series VI) would be released on January 2nd, and while that is a wonderful date, I find that I can’t keep these men and their happily ever after to myself any longer.
So today, as the cover of the sixth book in the Temptation Series is revealed so is the NEW RELEASE DATE: December 21st <3 span="">
Just in time for a plane trip, or a car trip, or a time out over the Christmas holidays where you want to curl up with some fictional family members. Because what better way can I say Merry Christmas to you all than by giving you this book early?


True - adjective: That which is accurate or exact.
I dare you to try.
I think you’re my truth.
Terrify me.
Marry me.
Marry me.
Marry me...
Four years ago, Logan Mitchell walked into Tate’s life and challenged him to see it differently.
He dared Tate to try a kiss, when normally he wouldn’t have.
He begged him to take a chance, when he probably shouldn’t have.
But most importantly, he asked Tate to trust that he would love him, and he did. From that moment on, Tate realized exactly what his life had been missing—Logan.
Happily-ever-afters come in many different forms. But for Tate Morrison, there’s only one ending he wants. The one where the guy marries the guy and true love conquers all.
Now all he has to do is tell Logan.

Join Logan and Tate as they finally realize what the rest of us knew all along. That they belong together for better or worse—always.

Graham Peters is an alpha who is fifteen years older than Sam. While Graham doesn’t realize Sam is pregnant, something about the younger omega tugs at his heart. He wants to help the down on his luck omega.

The two men grow close when Graham opens his home to Sam. But Sam is guarded and afraid of what might happen if Graham discovers he’s is pregnant with another alpha’s baby.

This is a 28,000 word Christmas Mpreg story with a guaranteed HEA. 


Aww..this is so adorable and heartwarming. The kind of Alpha - Omega I always craved for, with a little 'problem' in the middle. just enough portion for one sweet holiday story.
I won't bore you with a story line, just read the book and you'll meet Sam and Graham. I think they're right for each other right from the start. Add one pregnancy stress to the picture, one lousy ex, and a baby. Just a perfect story for MPreg lovers!
Just the right story for a fun Christmas holiday.

ARC REVIEW : Kairos by Mary Calmes


Sometimes the best day of your life is the one you never saw coming.

Joe Cohen has devoted the past two years of his life to one thing: the care and feeding of Kade Bosa. His partner in their PI business, roommate, and best friend, Kade is everything to Joe, even if their relationship falls short of what Joe desires most. But he won’t push. Kade has suffered a rough road, and Joe’s pretty sure he’s the only thing holding Kade together.

Estranged from his own family, Joe knows the value of desperately holding on to someone dear, but he never expected his present and past to collide just as Kade’s is doing the same. Now they’ve stumbled across evidence that could change their lives: the impact of Kade’s tragic past, their job partnership, and any future Joe might allow himself to wish for….

 KairosKairos by Mary Calmes
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I have no idea how to rate this. I liked the gorgeous cover, I liked the idea of the story, but I'm kinda pissed at Joe's obvious and Kade's oblivious. I even liked Evan and Declan!
But I didn't really care about Kade. I think Evan would be a better one for Joe.
But love is blind, right? Even though Joe saw 'everything' about Kade's sex life (it irked me a whole lot bunch of it).
I'm a patient one, but I lost my patience reading how clueless Kade was. And how devoted Joe to him.
And near the end, I need them to be patient for the new feeling development. LOL.
I loved Mary Calmes, but this is one of her book that I'd be glad if I pass it.

ARC REVIEW : Inseparable (Port Java #1) by Sloan Johnson


Trevor and Gabe never knew life without the other. As only children, they grew up as close as brothers, but their love grew to something more. Something they couldn't talk about because their parents wouldn't understand.

Gabe is gay and unapologetic about his sexuality. He refuses to live his life in the shadows, but that doesn't mean he isn't harboring secrets.

Trevor is his parents’ miracle child and he doesn’t want to hurt them. Coming out, admitting he's in love with Gabe, could ruin everything.

Heading off to college was supposed to finally free them to be together, but nothing is as easy as it seems. Can they find a way to navigate this new world, living and loving openly?

  InseparableInseparable by Sloan Johnson
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Hmm...I don't know. Maybe it's just me. But I didn't feel any strong chemistry between Gabe and Trevor. The moms annoyed me, they're too nosy, imo.
Gabe spent too much time with his friend Seth. I almost thought that Seth has a 'thing' for him.
Trevor and Gabe didn't do anything meaningful to let us reader know that they're deserved each other and made for each other.
Their relationship is too fragile. Even it based on bestfriend's first.
I worried they couldn't keep the relationship for too long.
It's a HFN though. I'm not convinced.
I think this is just an okay read for me, besides, the writing style is not my cuppa. Sorry.

REVIEW : 2017 Advent Calendar Daily - Stocking Stuffers Series


 Find it here


ALL CREATURES GREAT AND SMALL 🌟🌟🌟🌟                                             
 Oh, this is a wonderful story to begin with.
This was funny and adorable. I laugh a lot. Charlie and Aemon are definitely meant to be together.
There are some adorable adopted animals too, because Charlie cannot stand a lone animal, abandoned at Christmas. So he gave max his first Christmas. But he had no idea what's real Christmas like, because since he's five years old, his parents passed away and lived with some foster parents ever since.
I cried a bit when he asked Aemon what's the Christmas like, and Aemon told him everything, and wanted to give him a real Christmas. Sigh.
"Maybe I'm just a bit sad that I don't remember Christmas with my parents, because maybe it was just as wonderful as yours.." 
I enjoyed this so much, enjoyed the laughter, the love, the clumsiness, the sweetness...the animals are all adorable. And the ending was just so perfect!
Recommended for your holiday read!

Short and fun with a HFN. It's okay though according that Steven and Kyle has just met and never been in a date before. One moment of truth, one date at Kyle's house, sexy time together, hopefully leads to their HEA. Who knows? Christmas is full of miracles after all.
A sweet short Christmas story to look forward to.
It's never easy to trust someone after you had your world crumbling down on your previous relationship. 

Aaron and Craig had almost a similar disappointment over their earlier love affair, and trust is all they need to stay together for a long time. While Aaron need someone not to pointing fingers on him for his anxiety, Craig had his own secret. And he's about to let Aaron see him and accepting him as he is.
This is a sweet and heartwarming story about what family means to us. And Craig wanted to share his life and being family with Aaron desperately. After he revealed his secret to Aaron.
Aaron didn't take it very well at once, but after a short therapy session with Freddie the security guy, all he need is actually listened to what Craig about to say.
It seemed what he had been afraid of, was nothing at all after what Craig gave it to him.
Loved this story, I enjoyed it a lot. Oh don't worry about sexy times, Craig and Aaron were on fire after everything between them solved.
So, everybody's happy. Ooh...and you'll meet with Grace later...*wink*

OMG Eugene is so freaking stubborn! If only he;s not that stubborn and I wanted to slap his head all the time, I would probably enjoyed the book more. I mean, seriously? I have no idea why Cullen's so patient with him.LOL.
I don't think I have that kind pf patience Cullen have for Eugene.
This is a 'perfect Christmas story'. You know, sad, broken man, with a little tendencies to steal a box of nails, ended with a love of his life and everyone forgave him. I'm so jealous! :P
Well, this is Christmas after all. I liked the ending though. And Cullen is perfect, at least for Eugene. Hahaha…

This is a second chance romance and it's kinda sweet. Because, not just renewed love affair between Jason and Tom, but also his nephew Mallory who lost her parents and have to live with her uncle.
I liked that when Mallory asked Jason if he and Tom are boyfriends, and when Jason told her no, she told him that she wanted to marry Tom, because Tom make breakfast!
Tom and Jason tried to talk and cannot deny their attractions to one another.
So yeah, they got their second chance of love, built a new life in the near future is a no question.
I enjoyed this. Especially Mallory!

Cute and adorable story, with a little girl and a dog in the middle. Makes everything between Scott and Brennan's relationship a lot easier. When someone liked your dog, and someone can stand your daughter and adored her, things like falling in love as soon as possible believable. Right?
Yeah, it's an insta-love between Brennan and Scott. Brennan won't take no as an answer, and Scott is just, okay, he's the right guy for me.
Scott got the best Christmas gift in the world, a family.
It's HFN with a promises for long lasting love.
Happy Holiday!

Oooh this is lovely and adorable!
I loved Michael with all his energy and love for Christmas. And Brad with all his more controlled personality. But when it comes to Michael, I think he can't say no. Especially when Michael woo him with his cookies.
There's a conflict in his heart about Michael, but then, I'm glad they worked it out. In this case, from Brad's side. Because, hey...a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. Follow his heart and chasing after his dream.
And that's what Brad's do.
I love the epilogue, it was kinda perfect. The guys surely got their HEA!


This is a magical sweet fairy tale. I was captivated from the start.
This is what I called a truly Christmas spirit story. I was so excited when I found this story and I'm not wrong!
What the author tried to tell you is, true love does exist, in this world or somewhere in between.
I cried a little reading how much Laurence so determined to find Avery after their twelve nights in that cabin.
That's what true love like, right?
When you found your heart, you keep it, and never let go.
It's such a beautiful story. Recommended!

Cute story, with an adorable seven year old matchmaker and art. Art everywhere!
And men with no communicating skills usually made me angry, lol. And Grant and Josh are both part of that.
I mean, come on, can you just ask? What's so hard about asking?
But this is also cute, even assumption is kinda irked me a little.
This one is light, sweet and adorable story. Again, with art. And I'm an art junkie.
Enjoyable and fun. Read this!

This is rare. A senior love story between 57 and 67 year old men is very rare in MM genre.
It's very sweet actually. I liked the idea of a second times , third times chance of love affair and not spending your old days alone and lonely, but with someone you love.
Samuel and Raymond are bot unique characters. Samuel with his love for chicken, and Raymond with a tendencies of eating it! LOL
This was a fun read, I enjoyed both Samuel and Raymond. Mostly Samuel, he's a sweetheart.

A sweet story about Henry and Jim, twenty years after their first met. It's a flashback, and the couple remembered how they met, that put tears in my eyes for how much acceptance between the two of them on that day. How much Jim trusted Henry that Henry won't do no harm for him. Sure Jim was reckless that day, but he had a reason that everyone will understand immediately.
Henry's like a gift from heaven he had to accept willingly ever since.
Twenty years later, they're still together and remembering the first time they met, is like their tradition.

When you have a crush on someone and you cannot say anything about it, except stalking him?
That's what happened between Aaron and Nick. Besides, Nick didn't know that Aaron came for him every day, finding a reason to talk to him, but afraid to asked him out. While Nick thought that Aaron is too good to be true, and came to his work at the convenient store just for a quick breakfast before work. Nick has crush on Aaron as well.
So, guys obviously need a better communication skill, talk instead of wasting time for a whole month pretending and assuming.
I liked this one a lot. This is a heartwarming and adorable story to savor for holiday. Well written, and unputdownable. You'll love Nick and Aaron!

I liked the idea of 'senior' romance. Both MCs are in their fifties, and looking forward for a new romance.
Perry and Joel are friends, ever since before Perry's husband's death. Well, there's attraction between them, but not until Perry ready to date again. Perry gave signs but Joel's kind of clueless about Perry's attraction to him.
Not until Perry TOLD him. Agghh... I wanted to slap Joel, because how could he's so blind?
Perry wanted him and only him, not some young guys who's hitting on him.
You know, when everyone sees you're into someone and you're the only one who cannot see that? That's Joel. But secret Santa's idea is kinda cute.
It was a fun read, and light, not much of complicated. Holiday reads should be like this, right? 


This is so freaking adorable, and cute! With a holiday spirit and insta-love and the gamers!
I'm so enjoying this, laughing so much, and I never really often seeing myself happy while I'm reading. And Walter and Edgar made me happy! Because there so right for each other.
I can't recommend you enough to pick this one! 

Stokely doesn't like Christmas. But he likes Asher. Listened to Asher every morning and dreaming of him.
And when Asher asked him to send sometimes with him to do deeds for Christmas, it was somekind of deal breaker for him.
But Asher won't stop, he has that kind of energy to make Stokely sees Christmas a different way.

This is a heartwarming holiday story you'll probably wants to consider read.
Happy Holiday!

Well, I have no idea what's on Peter and Keith's head ten years ago when they were obviously attracted to each other, and Peter just bolted and ignored Keith just like that. No explanation after that, no apologies? And Keith just assumed?
Ten year's later, they has the same path and still, Keith's assuming?
It's actually the sweet Christmas story, but not enough chemistry between Peter and Keith to make me believe that they will have a HEA.

I enjoyed this story. It's cute and adorable. The type of book you would like to read when you need a dream come true, with a little puzzle play.
Having a long distance relationship is never easy, especially when you have your love ones as an ARMY, and never know where he is at the moment every time he's been deployed.
But James has a little surprise for Cole, not an easy one because Cole has to 'guess' what James hiding from him.
Enjoyable and fun. And a promise of HEA!

When you are poor have nothing, happiness is simple. Even if it's only a forgotten picture from your childhood, a warm food, and a job opportunity. And your love ones stand beside you whatever people said about you, to love you and make sure that you are happy.
That's enough for Casey and Ellis. But this year, Christmas is pretty special, because there's hope.
I liked this one, enjoyable and heartwarming. And Casey and Ellis are happy, this is their best Christmas ever! Because, the end is kinda hooked me and made me smile.

Of course this is storm stranded story and an insta-attraction between two guys whose only recognized each other from afar. Nothing's wrong with that. But an insta-f***ing with a virgin you have only known for like two minutes? Yeah, teenage hormones and all, but still.
I liked the idea of locked up in a dorm, but I don't think the execution is really what I need.
This could be better if only no sex included, but just a promise of a relationship in the future.

Meeting your long lost love and have an opportunity for a second chance is always sweet.
Especially when some 'magic' involved.
But where's the magic? I think it's in the old watch Rory's Grandda gave him. Reminding him that Deacon is someone he need to keep. Someone from the past that could be his future.
It's a sweet fluffy short story, good enough to read to pass your holiday.
Don't expect too much magic. Because I didn't feel it, and also, the chemistry between Rory and Deacon not as strong as I expected.

While I liked the idea of magical meeting of the very own father of Christmas, there's something missing with the second chance romance between Danny and Clay.
I felt like they still keeping their anger about the past, and not fully forgiving, you know. Of course there's arguing, forgiveness, lust and sex that's undeniably they both wanted.
It's just I need 'more' from both of them. I felt like it was just lust after all. I didn't feel any strong chemistry between them up until the end of the book. Damn, I wish this is where I have to say, 'It's me, book, not you'.

Competing between business owners and then falling in love? Nice plot bunny.
But I think Nick and Paul gave a new meaning of childish competition according to their businesses.
Raged Paul, and childish Nick, and all in between, made me frowned in not a very good way.
Don' get me wrong, I liked the whole story idea, but there's just something wrong with that two. Maybe the need some anger management therapy? You know, how to get mad without being silly?
I didn't sit well with all the insta-love and insta-moving in decision after getting naked for two day.
Or I'm the one whose too old fashioned. Or I'm too old for this.
Definitely too old... :(

ARC REVIEW : Out For the Holidays: An Out Novella by Cara Dee



I’m not saying Henry jinxed us when he chose to send out two hundred holiday cards stating we were going to have a blissful Christmas at home…

Before we knew it, our peace and quiet went out the window, and we were headed to Mexico for a photo shoot my agent had neglected to tell me about. Of course, we had to deal with the man who didn’t want us to be together, and then we ended up back in LA, and we had to figure out what was going on with my brother, and, and… Okay, deep breaths. FYI, Philadelphia is nowhere near our home in northern Washington. Additionally, I wonder how Viagra really works, and what’s it gonna take to get a proposal around here?

Honestly. I’m not saying Henry jinxed us, but I’m writing the damn card next year.

Warning: This story contains more sugar than the cookies you leave for Santa, and it's chock-full of greetings and updates from other characters written by Cara, titles including Noah, Home, Path of Destruction, Uncomplicated Choices, and more. 


(A 40k words long Christmas-themed sequel to Out. Not a standalone.)
Out For the Holidays: An Out NovellaOut For the Holidays: An Out Novella by Cara Dee
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is a very busy holiday season for Zach and Henry, Zach in particular.
After eighteen months having a relationship with Henry, he's ready for family, but his new job as spoke person and model is slowly killing him. He needs more time with Henry and his family.
Henry and Zach never thought that something would happened until Joseph came into the picture and there's some 'adventure' with Zach little brother, Mattie.
Good thing is, they resolved the problems the mature way Mattie is a lucky boy having Zach and Henry on his side.

I usually hates any conflict with third person and jealousy, but I think Zach and Henry handled it the right way, because they're strong together.
For a short story, I don't know, I felt a little hectic. The sexy times between Henry and Zach a little too much for my liking. Guess, I'm not a party kind of person myself.
So if you like sexy time in the party, drunk sex, with booze and all, you'll probably like it.

But this is a fun read though, I enjoyed how much Zach and Henry longed for a real family of their own.
The epilogue is kinda sealed it, their family is going to have more member.

Length: 48,000 words approx

Cover Design: Natasha Snow


Ben has Christmas, cats, and mistletoe on his side…. Jason doesn’t stand a chance

For Ben Slater, moving back to Bristol means being closer to his family, living with his best mate, and volunteering at the local animal shelter. But there’s also Jason, his best mate’s eldest brother. Ben’s had a crush on Jason for as long as he can remember, but the eleven-year age gap has always seemed insurmountable.

Jason Armitage works as a vet at his uncle’s practice. He owns a cute cottage on the outskirts of the city, and a loving dog. The one thing missing is someone to share it all with. His brother’s best friend seems a bad choice, but Jason can’t help taking a second look. Ben’s changed a lot since Jason last saw him; both in appearance and attitude. Gone is the shy young boy, replaced with a confident, twenty-four-year-old man.

In the run up to Christmas, the festive period gives Ben the ideal opportunity to show Jason what he has to offer. But concerns for his brother’s feelings hold Jason back. If they have any chance of making this work, Ben must convince Jason that he’s old enough to know what he wants, and Jason needs to believe that a relationship with his brother’s best friend won’t ruin their friendship.

Ben tried not to look, but inevitably his gaze was drawn to Jason still sat on the sofa. He stood as Pete stepped back, and Ben got a proper look at him. Ben wasn’t the only one who’d changed a little over the past couple of years. The last time he’d seen Jason, his hair had been short, like an army cut, and he’d had a beard. He’d looked hot then, but now…. Ben had to forcibly shut his mouth so he didn’t gape.
Jason’s thick dark hair, still shaved at the sides, was now a good couple of inches longer on top. And he was clean shaven. Ben kind of missed the beard, but without it Jason looked much younger, and his strong jawline was a thing of beauty. He looked thinner, too. Ben frowned because Jason ate like a horse and had always been bulkier than his brothers. That thought somehow made its way out of Ben’s mouth.
“Have you lost weight?”
Jason laughed softly, one hand immediately going to his stomach. He patted his belly and sighed. “God don’t you start. Mum’s already been on at me about not eating properly.” He pulled Ben in for a quick hug. “It’s good to see you, even if you do put the rest of us to shame.”
Oh God, that voice. As smooth and deep as Ben remembered.

Not Just For ChristmasNot Just For Christmas by Annabelle Jacobs
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Back home and meet again with his childhood crush, is something Ben expected or not. Considering Jason still thought that Ben is his baby brother's best friend. But Ben is determined to get to know Jason again (even he's still shy when it comes to Jason). This time for better and he didn't want to steo back again. Good thing is, Jason finally realized that he found Ben is kind of 'different'. Of course, more attractive, and 'not a boy anymore'.
So, it's kind of hard to avoid Ben at some point. They're also have the same love for pets and one particular cat glued them together.
Ben also a little more bold this time, to test the water with Jason, kiss under the mistletoe, leads to another.
I can say it's a little bit a slow burn between Jason and Ben. I was kinda pissed a little with Jason for running away from Ben that night because of what Liam's said (when he's drunk!).
Okay, he'd worked it out to win Ben's heart.
Thanks to Liam who sorted it out between Ben and Jason.
But this is a sweet and adorable Christmas story with the pets and not so much complicated like I used to like in my holiday reads.
Happy holiday!
