Review:

Once again, Joe Cosentino has successfully completed another mystery novel. His series, Nicky and Noah Mysteries, features a gay couple. Nicky and Noah both work in their college department’s for theater. There’s never a day these two aren’t performing or solving a mystery. Murder, mayhem, disaster, risks,and humor are found on every page. I love the variety of tasks that this brilliant writer has created for each one of his books. 

In Drama Detective, the fifth novel, I got to follow along as both protagonists put on a favorite play of mine…Sherlock Holmes. Unlike the previous versions of the famous fictional detective, this one shows a gay quality. It was quite interesting and fun to follow. Nicky directs the big plays while his husband, Noah assists him. This gay couple has been my favorite since they were first introduced to me. Nicky is bolder than his husband Noah. Noah is a bit more shy compared to his love. Their banters are engaging. Here, Nicky and Noah are under a lot of pressure as always. A budget for a popular play, directing the play, and acting in the play requires a lot of energy. Especially, when bodies are popping up…both characters will have to race once more to find the murderer before it’s too late. The other cast of characters like Nicky and Noah’s friends and their adopted son, make this a new favorite. 

Drama Detective, like the previous tales before it, deeply satisfies the the reader. An engaging plot line that sucks me into the story, is one worth reading. I laughed a lot through the book. The fun grew more intense as the action took over…death, love, and craziness everywhere. Joe Cosentino is one of my favorite writers. His characters pull me into their lives. I can feel, see, and hear everything as if I were in their shoes. If you enjoy drama, theater, and mystery ten this is a must read. Beware, it does feature the gay genre heavily and some unconventional ways but it’s so good, you’ll be begging for more.

Nicky and Noah will need to use their drama skills to figure out who is bringing the grass curtain down on male hula dancers—before things go coconuts for the handsome couple. You will be applauding and shouting Bravo for Joe Cosentino’s fast-paced, side-splittingly funny, edge-of-your-seat entertaining fourth novel in this delightful series. Curtain up and aloha!

Review:

Drama Luau: A Nicky and Noah Mystery by Joe Cosentino’s is another grand adventure with this stunning pair. Nicky and Noah are two professors who end up solving cases. Wherever these two go, there’s always a murder investigation around the corner. This time, Nicky and Noah are heading on their honeymoon. Both choose Hawaii as their destination. Not only does murder follow them where they go, but there’s always an opportunity for them to perform a show. 

Joe Cosentino’s has once again, brought all of his usual talents with him. Drama Luau is his newest piece to the Nicky and Noah mysteries. A novel that speaks out for the LGBT community. I love reading Joe Cosentino’s work. He always incorporates major themes into his tales. Each theme brings out a real life issue that readers everywhere can relate to immediately. As with his previous novels, this one was just as exciting. Humor filled the pages. Readers will have found adventure, mystery, and romance with every page. Nicky and Noah are my favorite gay couple. Something about them just lures me further into their story. Funny, clever, and sweet. One teaches fitness the other teaches drama. Their roles as detectives isn’t lost on their friends nor family. I can’t find anything not to love about this series. Especially, Drama Luau. This read had me laughing and falling in love…I was hooked instantly. Overall, I highly recommend Drama Luau to all. 

Review: The Significant Other by Nicole Strycharz 

Synopsis:

Adam: I swore off men years ago to protect myself. I don’t trust guys. Guys break hearts, they take, and they don’t give like women do. That’s why for the past ten years I’ve entrusted my heart to a tattooed, multi-hair colored, vixen named Trix. Trixie is my safe haven. She doesn’t just back up my voice in our band she backs me in life. 
Sadly, I don’t reciprocate like I should. My phobia of PDA and my over-protectiveness are hard to put up with. It might be because I need more than I let on. More than I would dare to admit to. 
We moved to NY to grow as a band but then I met ‘him’…our boss; a sexy as hell, bad boy with a convict’s past and a talent for breaking men and women’s hearts alike. He’s bad news… An urban beast with too much edge and he’s prowling around my comfort-zone relationship. 
Now I’m not sure who my significant other is… my girl or the man determined to remind me who I really am and what I truly want. 

Trixie: Coming to the city was our ticket to fame. It was me and Adam against the odds of notoriety but since we arrived in the Big Apple, we’ve also been made aware how small our bubble of safe love is. 
I know what my boyfriend probably hasn’t admitted to himself… that I’m not enough for him. We both are just too chicken to do anything about it. 
New York is changing us. The people we meet here, the emotions we face, even our music… and if there is anything you learn from these streets, it’s this… 
Traffic and life, they both wait for no one. You have to go with the flow, ride the current, and keep up the pace. Both Adam’s love and mine is being tested, or it’s about to end. 
Hopefully we can figure it all out. Oh and add that to my list of to do’s like keeping my twin away from a dangerous drug lord, struggling not to fall from a stranger, keeping the band from falling apart and not becoming a bumbling idiot in front of our criminally hot boss. Yeah…criminal…

Review:

The Significant Other by Nicole Strycharz is another brilliant masterpiece. Striaght and the LGBT community will love this book. Once more, I got another taste of the heart and soul the writer puts into her words. Emotionally, tugging on my heart strings. I cried, I laughed, and I fell in love. Frustrating, stunning, and well-told. The entire tale was nothing but epic. 

Nicole Strycharz created her first novel featuring a gay couple. A man who likes other men. That was until he had his heart broken. Then, he went and fell for Trixie. A female singer. But despite her loving him…something just was missing. Both knew it. Adam just didn’t want to face it and neither did Trixie. Adam is a sexy hot alpha male who easily gets under readers skin, like he did to me. His has a big heart. I noticed that from the beginning. Adam hid himself with Trixie…keeping his heart guarded. Until, they meet their new boss. A boss that is more alpha than Adam, sexy hot too, and has a thing for Adam…

Trixie is a submissive kind of woman. Made her great for Adam. But she wasn’t meant for him. That’s thought love. She knew Adam’s real love and it wasn’t for her. Trixie too, has the biggest heart anyone has read in fiction. Despite her sexy tough looks, lies a sweet engaging woman looking for love. Trixie finds love but it fails…then she has a sister that made me want to hug Trixie. Trixie goes out and beyond for her sister. A sister who will never change…

Overall, The Significant Other is a book I can easily see made into a movie for 18-year-olds and above due to its content. Sex, drugs, and other things. Life is messy, complicated, and unfair. I really enjoyed this novel, because it brought out real life issues that people battle with each day. Believable, intriguing, and well-written. Nicole Strycharz has done it again with her latest piece. I applaud Nicole for her astounding job in creating three-dimensional characters whose stories I’ll never forget. So readers, yes, I highly recommend this talented writer’s book, The Significant Other to all.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

Cozzi Cove: New Beginnings by Joe Cosentino is the fourth best gay romantic comedy I have read. The entire Cozzi Cove Series is perfect thus far. Each book represents new events, political agendas, sexy characters, and happy endings. Plus, Joe Cosentino has once more added his brand of humor to this book. I can’t decide which book within the series is the best. Because each one is unique and ties together. The writer has a flare for creating the juiciest plots, unexpected twists, and a romance that sizzles with passion. The heat is a amazing…

Inside this latest novel, readers will find out just how close Cal’s family is and how it’s growing. A baby to come. Michael is once again having some sad moments where he feels like an outsider. He Issue of finding a job has him feeling out of sorts. But he and his husband Cal are close. Their romance made me blush. So bold and strong…felt believable. They each compliment the other. Joe Cosentino has sprung an interesting plot with the new title. Of course, the story follows as the title suggests, new beginnings. I loved how the woman carrying Cal’s and Micheal’s baby was while pregnant. Her comments made me laugh so hard. The struggles women go through while carrying a baby for nine months…can be crazy. Then, the interesting set of charcaters add spice and variety to Cozzi Cove. There’s never a boring moment at the Cozzi Cove place. Buzzing with cool people, new budding romances, and more surprises lie ahead. I have read many gay fictional pieces, but none of them have as much life to them as Joe Cosentino’s Cozzi Cove Series and Nicky and Noah Series have. It’s like Joe pours his whole heart, soul, and mind into each character, scene, and plot. I feel an array of emotions from the pages that hit me hard and good. It a book doesn’t provoke an emotional response than it’s not worth reading. I could feel and almost see the charcaters as they went about their lives. Cozzi Cove: New Beginnings is a definite must read. I know with a doubt that readers worldwide will fall in love with this book as much as I have. Overall, I highly recommend it.

Cozzi Cove: Stepping Out by Joe Cosentino is an emotional journey that stays with readers forever. The characters inside have a way of luring me deeper into their lives.

Review: Secret Life of Thomas Commons 


Synopsis

The Secret Life of Thomas Commons is about the emotional struggles of Mr. Thomas Franklin Commons and Mr. Wesley Tobias Ashfield as they battle their tragically structured upbringing and predetermined lives. Mr. Thomas Franklin Commons is a wealthy, but bitter twenty-two year old man living in London, England when he meets Mr. Wesley Tobias Ashfield, a cheerful and charming young man whom he is soon to enter into business with. However, Thomas is soon caught off guard when Wesley’s friendly nature gradually begins to warm his frigid temperament, and their friendship becomes more than either of them expected.

As their relationship evolves from friendship to love, they find themselves caught up in a romance that transcends infatuation and gives way to dangerous consequences. The feelings of both men are tested when they’re arrested for sodomy and imprisoned for their alleged crimes against the nature of human sexuality. Thomas and Wesley’s affect on each other becomes so strong that their feelings give way to a slow epiphany that neither of them may come out alive. Both men are thrown into the reality of their situation when they must make decisions based on what is realistic or where their happiness for themselves and one another, truly lies.

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

The Secret Life of Thomas Commons by Brittany Weekley is a captivating read. For fans of M/M romance then this, is definitely for you. Putting that aside, the plot is magnificent. It captures the elements of the time period perfectly. Brittany  Weekley has also managed to show a realistic yet believable encounter of both characters’ dilemma. Same sex relationships back then and still even now, struggle to live their love life. (While I don’t encourage it, I don’t shun those people out. Taught to love and accept accept others.) The novel has strong emotional pulls that lure readers deep into the fate of each man. Both Mr. Thomas and Mr. Wesley have ways of capturing the audience’s hearts. Sympathy for them is felt full blast. Society has strictly punished them for simply being in love. Denying one’s heart is impossible and forced when in this situation. Strong men dealing with their time period the best they can. Survival isn’t easy. But it has both men rethinking on how to move forward so that each can be free. I wanted to cry. I felt their frustrations. It was so real…that readers would feel that they are merely glancing into the past versus reading the magical worlds coming to life. Every page was intense. Thomas Commons is the one telling the story. He ends up being my new favorite gay character. The troubles that came the character’s ways were heart felt. I see the talent of Brittany a Weekley shinning forth on every single page. Three-dimensional characters, interesting historical tale, and a romance that readers won’t forget. I highly recommend The Secret Life of Thomas Commons to all.

Rating: 4-stars

Review:

The King’s Lament by Lilia Blanc is a fascinating LGBT read. The characters each have a journey that they must go through as well as the one they all share. The emotions tie readers into the story immediately. The roller coaster ride causes many emotions like angry, laughter, sadness and love. Themes like revenge, redemption, and second chances are found here. Lilia Blanc has created a tale that both breaks and melts readers’ hearts. It’s hard not to like the characters. Their feelings are so real and their troubles…are believable. Three dimensional characters inside a fascinating world of fiction. Kingdom once strong is now falling apart. A prince seeking refugee from his own people is now fighting to take back what’s rightfully his. A queen is so evil even her fiercest warriors don’t want to get on her bad side. Danger is everywhere. People will do anything to survive….trust comes at a price. 

The Kings’s Lament is recommended for those you don’t mind a lot of male/male erotic romances. Other than that there was plenty of danger, action, and intrigue to keep the pages turning. A love triangle forms…among unlikely characters…and a group of commoners are willing to sacrifice their lives to keep the prince alive to fight for his kingdom back. The friendships were entertaining. Each character had his or her own strong personality that made the story come alive. Suspense was super. Every page added a little more and made things more complicated than they were already…where or how the novel ends is for readers to read. I recommend this enchanting tale to all. 

Review: Drama Cruise

You will be applauding and shouting Bravo for Joe Cosentino’s fast-paced, ribald, edge-of-your-seat entertaining third novel in this delightful series. Curtain up and ship ahoy!

Rating: 4.5 stars

Review:

Drama Cruise by Joe Cosentino has delivered my favorite gay couple. Nicky and Noah are on a cruise while on vacation and things get pretty crazy fast. First surprise, was one they weren’t expecting. Family. Both their families came onto the cruise. They caused a groan from Noah and Nicky to smile. Soon their families are planning all their wedding details…but then, other surprises much darker start to happen. It will be up to Nicky and Noah to navigate through the suspects to solve who murdered the gay professors on board.

I was not expecting the murderer to be who it was…I was surprised. Nicky and Noah were funny as always, but this time…the story didn’t quite match the previous magic by this talented writer. The engaged couple’s antics were realistic, however, it appeared the Nicky didn’t mind his family fussing with the wedding plans but got super mad at Noah pretty fast…but then, Nicky was like whatever Noah wants that’s what he wants too. But it seemed like Nicky just gave in to easily to Noah in this tale. Other than that, Joe Cosentino’s writing was great. There’s always a murder case to be solved when Nicky and Noah are around doing theater. Acting, action, and death…follow these two amazing guys everywhere even to Alaska. I can’t wait to see what holds for Nicky and Noah in Hawaii. I love these characters and the plot is always intriguing. Drama Cruise is another stunning piece…once more this book was written strong isssues and heartfelt feelings. Overall, I highly recommend it to all.

 

 

Review: Just Juliet

Just Juliet by [Reagan,Charlotte]

 

Synopsis:

The coming out story that will completely change the way you look at love.

Juliet represents the road less traveled. Will Lena take it?

Lena Newman is 17, her best friend’s a cheerleader, her boyfriend’s a football player, and as far as everyone is concerned, her life is sorted. But that’s before she befriends the new girl. Juliet is confident, slightly damaged, drop-dead gorgeous and a lesbian.

Lena realizes that her interest goes beyond just friendship. She sets off on a path of self-discovery where the loyalty of those closest to her will be tested.

Rating: 5 stars

Review:

Just Juliet by Charlotte Reagan is the kind of genre I normally don’t read. However, the story was well-developed and well-written. I liked how realistic the characters were. Love is not pretty. It’s more of a complicated knot that gets more twisted before it’s smoothed out…into fineness. I noticed that the writer captured the high school drama right down to its raw yet ugly form. Being in love is tough then add the attraction to the same sex and it’s worse. Worse as in hard for others around the main characters to accept as okay. People don’t choose who they fall in love with. Love isn’t a fashion statement it’s part of who that person is and if we can’t let them be who they are then love isn’t real. Experiencing what may be right for one is a scary path. Then add insecurity and drama to it and well, it makes for an interesting tale. Unfortunately, this tale came off so real, that it was frightening in a way. Charlotte Reagan definitely knows what goes on with teenagers and how they react to situations. She masterfully captured everything exactly the way it should be. Just Juliet is a YA coming of age book that I highly recommend to readers worldwide.

Review:

Joe Cosentino  has a reputation among his readers as the best novelist. Every book of his that I have read thus far…is outstanding. Inside this particular novel, readers will meet a variety of characters that creates a soap opera intrigue, unlike any other novel read. This story will definitely keep readers guessing with every page. Only when readers reach the last page does everything become know. It’s addictive. Cozzi Cove is a brand new series that will keep Joe Cosentino’s readers on their toes and begging for more. I laughed, cried, and fell in love with this latest novel.

Readers can easily loose themselves within Cozzi Cove. Suspense, adventure, and an intensity that will drive readers with insane as well as keeping them hooked. The characters are well-developed. The romance is created to a perfection as always. I don’t believe Joe Cosentino is capable of writing a bad novel. This novel just proves his raw beautiful talent for writing stories that will knock readers off their feet and deep into the plot. Cozzi Cove is full of characters, that comes, to life, and each has a personality so completely different from the others that it will indeed be very hard to put the book down once readers begin reading it. Overall, I highly recommend Cozzi Cove by Joe Cosentino to readers everywhere.

Book Review: Haw by Sean Jackson

Sean_Jackson_HAW_cover.indd

Haw is one inspirational novel that goes out and beyond the normality of what most writers create.  Sean Jackson has carefully blended many social issues into this stunning yet magnificent debut novel of his. Haw features an LGBT theme, which is rare in today’s novels.  Family life and struggles are also evident as readers continue reading. Pollution is the main theme that is and has been happening in our 21st century world which I enjoyed seeing it masterfully written inside this beautiful story. Sean Jackson will leave many impressions on readers to come with his fascinating book.  Bringing out the truths that most don’t want to see nor hear. Everyone hides from the devastating truth but deep inside Haw all becomes real as readers are led deep into its plot.

Haw is an outstanding story that tells of a 21st century world suffering greatly of pollution. Can you imagine drinking water that you know is contaminated because there isn’t any other clean water to drink? The dark, dirty, and a polluted city where Father and son find the hope to flee their North Carolina Home to find refuge. A father wanting to save his son from the corrupted society. Sean Jackson has brought the reality and fears of the future into his debut novel. I would definitely recommend this novel to readers all over the world. One novel that crosses every barrier and leaves readers guessing. Overall, I rate it a five out of five stars.
