Smut, Love and Drama - 3 Book Reviews #manga #yaoi #bookreview #gayromlit

Welcome to BRB, everyone!

Smut Book Review:

Okay, I know it’s pretty difficult to review a smutty book, but I thought I’d try. Nemuri Otoko to Koi Otoko or A Sleeping Man and A Loving Man by Zaria (Zariya Ranmaru) provides some of the most exquisite eye candy in the yaoi world, but it also has a story. Well…a bit of a story. 😝 
Jude, who is openly gay, and Royce, who is straight, are long-term business partners and housemates that share a platonic relationship until Royce’s mysterious disease begins to cause problems for Jude. In the middle of the night, Royce will get up and screw anyone close by, regardless of sex, and not recall anything the next day. Almost like sleepwalking. Ha ha. Anyway, this three-part story is filled with gorgeous sex scenes. Jude is a beauty, and Royce has a great body. Love it.

Love Book Reivew:

Ito, a serious high school student, meets the kind and childlike Nishi, during a single player game of “White Line Game". Little do either realize, but their meeting leads to a life-time of emotional growth, personal evaluation, love lost, and love found.
Life Senjou no Bokura or Life, Us from the Line by author Miya Tokokura is one of the most touching, and realistic yaoi I’ve read in a while. There is no hidden agenda, and no violence between the men. Ito and Nishi don’t have a typical uke/seme relationship, which is common in most yaoi, what they share is just…life. They meet by chance, fall in love, and try to keep their relationship going well into adulthood. But adulthood and what society, family and friends expect of them makes staying together an even greater challenge.
The characters are absolutely wonderful, the art is simple but eye-catching, and the story is something you won’t forget. Be prepared, if you decide to read Life Senjou no Bokura you’d better have a box of tissues handy.

Drama Book Review:

Bokura ga Koi wo Ushinau Riyuu by Itz is a little different from most yaoi. Actually, it’s is a breath of fresh air from the countless cliché stories about childhood friends falling in love and confessing. Oushirou has had feelings for his childhood friend Koba for years. While he’s drinking in a bar, a stranger, Inamura, chats him up. Inamura is kind, easy-going and talkative, but also seems a bit flighty. Regardless of first impressions, Oushirou is suffering and needs someone to talk to, so he slowly opens up to Inamura. In time, they develop a bond, and Oushirou isn’t sure if he still feels the same about Koba.
Oushirou is an interesting guy. He’s somewhat shy and introverted in yet strong when he needs to be. And Inamura has his own baggage, but he learns how to let it go. What I love about this story is how these two men really listen and support one another without any hidden agenda. Again, this story is more realistic than most I’ve read, and you will need a tissue.

Happy Yaoi Hunting!

New Release - Apprentice Killers #promotion #mustread #gayromlit #amwriting

Reaper series book 4 Apprentice Killers is available now!

As Brody reflects on his life, he begins to realize that his mentor’s influence may have impaired his judgment.

Apprentice Killers

‘Two for the price of one.’


When Brody receives a cryptic message from the newest of the Snuff program inductees, his memories are stirred. People and places, he hadn’t thought about in years awaken the most dormant of his emotions, and the present becomes blurred with the past. Not wanting to risk the life of the only person he cares about, he leaves Zeus behind to fight the pharmaceutical giant, for what he believes will be the last time.


Brody caught a glimpse of auburn hair—sunlit hues of radiant red. The young woman held a bag of groceries to her partially exposed chest as she exited the store. She had a vivacious air, bright smile, and perky bounce in her step that caused her ponytail to swish her sun-kissed shoulders. He followed her out of the supermarket into a parking lot lined with dry grass and giant trees. Most were of the nut variety, and dehydrated seedpods littered the ground.
He sat on a wood bench, slats faded where the lacquer had rubbed off. Screwed to the backrest was a dedication plaque in oxidized brass that read, ‘In loving memory of Sadie Ketchum.’ He wondered briefly who Sadie Ketchum was when he noticed subtle movement in his peripheral. “I knew a girl similar in appearance,” he said.
The young woman got into a compact, blue, European-model car.
“When was that?” Zeus sat down on his right, dropped a bag of groceries between his runners, and lit a cigarette.
“High school.”
“I get the feeling your memories aren’t pleasant.”
“Jessica Humboldt was a remarkable bully.”
“God, I can’t stand bullies.” Zeus flicked ash at the ground and took another drag.
“Don’t misconstrue my choice of adjective. I despise those who prey on the weak. But her strength of purpose fascinated me.”
“Well, good. For a moment there I thought you’d gone soft on me.”
He noted the mordant ring in his lover’s tone; Zeus was evolving. The more confidence he acquired the more openly he spoke his mind. He watched the blue car merge into the traffic. “She believed her superior intellect gave her privilege, and she turned humiliation into an art form. She could pinpoint her victim’s Achilles’ heel. It was the leverage she used to terrorize.”
Zeus looked at him. “So what did she do to you?”
The question didn’t catch him off-guard, however, it did trigger a physical response. He felt an ache in the center of his chest that he could only associate with an emotional loss. He’d experienced it just once before. “It isn’t what she did, it’s who she did it to.”

Brody blinked slowly, and when he opened his eyes the environment around him had changed. He was in the second-floor hallway of his high school, and a girl with the same auburn hair was inside a nearby classroom. Jessica’s expression wasn’t congenial like the smile of the woman from the supermarket; instead, her mouth was curled in a vicious snarl. The girl seated in front of her covered her face with her hands. Over a period of two semesters, he’d watched Jessica systematically torment a number of students both male and female.
Jessica yelled and slapped the girl. Teary-eyed, the girl slid her tremulous hands higher, shielding her head. The others teenagers in the classroom feigned ignorance. They looked out the windows, buried their heads in books, or continued to eat their lunch. No one dared to get involved. Brody didn’t feel anything in particular for the victim. But he felt something simmering deep within for the bully.
Rising from his slouched position against the wall, he stared at Jessica. When she noticed him, she froze with her fist in the air, and her already stern lip line soured to that of aversion. She grabbed her knapsack and burst into the hallway. As he knew she would, she’d come to confront him. The coldness in her glare told him everything, but he wasn’t fazed. Again, his mind elicited no emotional response. And his heart continued to beat at a relaxed and steady rate.
“You’d better mind your own business, geek.” She jerked her thumb towards the classroom. “If not, you’ll get worse than she did.”
“Prepare yourself,” he said evenly.
She stopped dead in the middle of the hallway and after a moment’s pause turned around. “What the fuck did you say?”
Everyone in the classroom watched, their curiosity growing by the second.
“To simplify: you don’t scare me. Threaten her once more and I will kill you.”
She didn’t move, and she didn’t show any obvious signs of fear. However, he did observe a slight tremble in her hand as her grip tightened on her knapsack strap, and her pupils dilated. He sensed a rise in her pulse and a hesitation to react. She was terrified and debating her odds.
Sliding his hands into his hip pockets, he bent closer and flashed a grin. “I can see straight through you, bitch.”
She leaned backwards, trepidation growing in her eyes, and nervously barked, “If you know what’s good for you—you’ll just stay the fuck away from me, asshole!”
He watched as she strode to the end of the hallway and descended a wide set of steps.

Zeus bent forward, dropped his butt, and mashed it under the grinding pressure of his shoe. “I’m guessing she didn’t stop after that.”
“The trouble escalated. The only deduction I could make was that she’d seen us together.”
“Cody and I.”
“I take it he was the high school boyfriend.”
