New Release! Jack the Anthropophagite #promotion #newrelease #mustread #gayromlit

Coming February 25th Jack the Anthropophagite will be available on Amazon!

Jack the Anthropophagite

Tagline:

Jack will eat no fat but will devour lean.’

BCB:

While drifting from town to town, Zeus and Brody meet Mr. McMurty, a generous widower in need of help. In exchange for a place to stay, they agree to do odd jobs around his farm.
Then one rainy night, Zeus notices a man standing outside the bathroom window. Brody searches the property but finds no trace. Zeus is certain of what he saw, and he’s certain their peaceful stint is about to come to an abrupt end.

Excerpt:

We returned to the farmstead, showered and put on clean clothes, and packed our duffel bag. It was still raining when we left, and the daylight had sunk into a murky haze. Brody exited the house first, and I don’t know why, but again a real uneasy feeling filled me. As I reached back to pull the door shut, a loud bang echoed off the house and blood exploded from Brody’s left shoulder. The subsequent chain of frightening events happened in slow motion: the impact twisting Brody’s torso unnaturally, blood flying past his fingertips.
I couldn’t expel any noise from my throat, and I couldn’t move.
For a fraction of a second, time froze.
Then everything began to move at normal speed once more; he grabbed his shoulder, ducking for cover, and hollered, “Run!”
I instantly sprang to life, my heart pounding. I dropped the duffel bag and jumped over the veranda rail to land on the uneven ground below. And that’s when I saw Jack standing in the meadow in front of the McMurty house. Rifle aimed, the pasty scarecrow fired another shot. I cringed, covering my head. Brody dove for the veranda and counter-fired with one of his M9s.
I couldn’t go back inside the house. I had to get to the truck like we’d planned. The main highway ran through the town ten miles away, and it was our only means of escape. Thirty yards dead ahead, nestled on a slope, was the barn—a creosote-stained wood structure commonplace on the prairies.
Soon as I heard Brody shout “Don’t stop!” I sprinted in that direction past the shed, fruit trees, and chicken coop. The daylight was almost gone as I came to a halt at the side of the barn. The gunfire had ceased. The only noise was that of the falling rain. Panting white into the air, I peered around the edge of the building. Cold droplets fell into my eyelashes and slid down my nose. I began to shiver.
Mr. McMurty’s truck was an additional thousand yards away—a dangerous distance where I’d be left wide open to a bullet. And where is Brody? Staring at the blackening sky, I bumped the back of my head against the wall with clenched teeth. Damn it, think!
I sighed in defeat. With no other option, I had to make a run for it. All I could hope was that the encroaching night would camouflage my movements. I zipped my jacket to conceal my bright red T-shirt. But just as I went to run, someone clamped a hand over my mouth, giving me the scare of my life.

Excerpt from Malediction by Erzabet Bishop

Alistair spotted the gorgeous brunette across the room and, when she approached the refreshment table, he followed. For a millisecond he’d taken her for the scrawny woman in the red dress, but on closer inspection, he was pleased to note the differences. Same dress, but the way this woman wore it, he was tempted to peel it from her, inch by scrumptious inch.
 His pack mate had poured a few bottles of something into the punch and, while it was entertaining to watch some of the guests succumb to the antics of the season, he didn’t quite feel the same about the sexy female in front of him. This woman would be far more interesting sober, he had a hunch and his predictions usually turned out to be spot on. The markings on her arms intrigued him and he wondered if they covered more of her body. Like tendrils of smoke curling around her flesh, they spiraled around her skin in an unending pattern, giving him the urge to trace every single one and see where it led.
He should be home at Briarwood, but his duties as Beta brought him here to make sure Jessup didn’t get too out of hand. So far the pup had been a bit mischievous, but nothing that would make him worry. Whatever concerns he had melted when he gazed at the beauty in front of him, his animal taking control.
Serious gray eyes winked at him from behind an elegant lacy black mask and he had the urge to peek beneath it to see what she was hiding. Full lips bowed below the mask, and her mass of dark hair was wound into an up-do that he longed to plunge his fingers into while he explored her mouth with his.
Jesus, Alastair. Get a grip.
His wolf perked up when she’d come into view and his instinct to bed her followed in quick succession. He shook it off with a frown. One night stands were not his style, especially with women he didn’t know. He had other concerns and, as soon as he made sure Jessup wasn’t going to fuck up and intoxicate half of the wealthier citizens of Salem, he was out of here. Duncan was still missing and he’d left Laurel in charge in his stead.
But, her eyes. Fuck. They fairly glowed with a power that socked him in the gut as they watched him from behind the mask. When she wet her lips and took her bottom lip between her teeth, he almost lost the battle with himself not to let his beast take over and drag her into the nearest coat closet.
“Are you here with someone?” He cleared his throat, aware of the growl threading through his voice.
“No. Are you?”
“Just a couple of friends. What do you think? Want to end up in a compromising situation with a stranger?” He grinned and, seeing Jessup approach, steered her away from the refreshment table. Alistair wanted her to himself, at least for a little while.
“Seven deadly sins? How about a dance? With my footwork, that could lead towards all kinds of infractions.”
“Hmm.” He swung her into his arms and into the crowd, relishing the sensation of his hand on her lower back. The plunging view offered by her bodice made his body stand at attention and the wolf beneath his skin whined with want. “So, which deadly sin could you possibly have that would sink a guy faster than lust? That dress…”
“These shoes.”
“Oh, but those… those are not a sin. Not at all. In fact, I could look at them all night long.”
“You could, could you?” The woman laughed, deep and sensual. Her eyes snapped with amusement. “Then you try wearing them.”
“Maybe I will.” He wanted her, and the closer they got, the more obvious it was going to become. He weaved her around the dance floor, her movements matching his. Her perfume and the spicy scent of her hair were making it hard to concentrate. At the look in her eyes, he dragged her back hard against him, his animal wild in his blood.
“Do you want to get out of here?”
“Please.”
 “Let’s get some air.” Alistair led her out onto the balcony, the twinkle lights flickered making the grounds outside the hotel look enchanted. He had to clear his head.
“Who are you?” Alistair brushed a strand of hair away from her face.
“I’m just a girl who needs an escape from reality. How about you?”
“Same here.”
“Just a girl, huh?” The mystery woman smiled.
He gathered her into his arms, letting her feel the full force of his arousal. “I don’t know. I’m not feeling much like a girl right now.”
“No. I didn’t think you were.” She leaned into his embrace, her lips curving up in an inviting smile.
“What’s your name?”
“Bridget. Yours?”
“Alistair.”
“Well, Alistair. It’s nice to meet you. I have one question.”
“What’s that?”
“How long is it going to take for you to kiss me?”
“Time me.” Alistair’s mouth covered hers hungrily and he forced her mouth open with his thrusting tongue. She gasped, trembling within his embrace and he pulled her deeper into the shadows, away from prying eyes.

The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese - #bookreview #yaoi #drama #MitzushiroSetona

Welcome to BRB, everyone!

I don't know if you're into drama like I am, but there are times when I enjoy a good emotional roller coaster ride. I find these types of stories help to ignite my own ideas when it comes to creating characters and their personal hang-ups. Each author has a vastly different view of how relationships are cultivated and work, and sometimes that view is really messed up. And the messier it gets, the more excited I become because "mess" is one thing, but how the author cleans it up is another.

Kyuuso Ha Cheese no Yume Omiru or roughly, in English, The Cornered Mouse Dreams of Cheese by Mitzushiro Setona is a graphic, psychologically taxing drama that paints a very realistic picture of what can happen in a relationship between a gay man and a straight man when both have serious personality flaws—not to mention when the straight man has no interest in the same sex.
Kyouichi's indecisive, so he can’t seem to commit to any relationship and cheats regularly. Thanks to his adulterous nature, his wife hires a private detective to catch him in the act. The detective, Imagase, who turns out to be a college classmate he hasn't seen since graduation, shows up at the restaurant where he’s dining and reveals everything. Kyouichi is bewildered and begs Imagase not to tell his wife. Then Imagase proposes a deal. He won't tell Kyouichi's wife about the infidelity, but he demands: "I want your body in exchange..."
Unfortunately, this one incident sets the tone for the entire story, and in time these two men wind up in a very twisted relationship. I don’t mean kinky sex kind of twisted, I mean Imagase almost drives Kyouichi to suffer a nervous breakdown. Imagase wants Kyouichi so badly he can scarcely live without him, in yet in the same breath he doesn’t trust the man. So his emotional instability quickly becomes a double-edged sword.
Honestly, these two men drove me crazy. For most of the book, I was too upset to turn to the next page. Imagase is such a fuck-up in so many ways but also such a good guy. And Kyouichi just has no guts. In the end, they managed to work things out.


However, the sequel Sojou No Koi Wa Nido Haneru or The Carp on the Chopping Block Jumps Twice, paints an even darker picture, as these two men once again fall into disarray. But this time Kyouichi is a changed man. He’s no longer indecisive; he’s fed up with Imagase’s emotional battery, and the constant flitting in and out of his life. By the last chapter, I really believed there would be no HEA. I actually expected to be left feeling sick, but the author did an excellent job of erasing all my apprehension. The ending wasn’t blissful, but at least I felt satisfied that both men were in love, understood and respected one another. And most importantly, Kyouichi finally said his piece and revealed his true feelings. 

I have to say the ending of the sequel is what did it for me. Five stars for both.

Happy Yaoi Hunting!

Book Review:

This time my review will be short and sweet just like Pablo Michael's newest release! Prelude to Jack's Magical Beanstalk and Sam's Quandry (Book 3) reads like a gateway to the author’s imagination—the description isn’t overdone but tastefully crafted so that the reader clearly sees everything as if the characters were standing directly in front of them. Sam and Jack are endearing and their romance second to none. I really enjoyed this short story, the growth of the main characters relationship, the world they live in, and even the side characters; it’s a perfect and fun addition to the series. 5 Stars! 😊
