Gage Marx is a PI who specializes in impossible problems. He's used to solving the unsolvable. The only thing he's ever declared a lost cause is himself.

Copy received via GRR for an honest review 

It has been an age since I have read a DP Denman story, and as I read Inhale, I remember why I had loved them so much in the past.

Raise your hand if you have every received one of those emails saying that th3y have video of you, and they will release it if you don't give them Bitcoins *raises hands*

That is the reality of Cole in Inhale, only this time yes there really is video.

Oh my heart, as he deals with this, the betrayal, the feeling of helplessness.

But oh my heart as he finds Gage - with all his grief and hurt and wondering why.

This book deals with a lot of issues that are relevant and prevailant in today's society. And they are handled well, and with care.

I was kept entranced by the tale as the story unfolded, running the gamut from pure joy at times, to utter devastation for these men.

I really enjoyed Inhale, and I am glad that D.P Denman is back on my reading radar.

The stunning conclusion to the forbidden romance, The Luna Duet, by New York Times Bestseller, Pepper Winters...

I made the worst mistake of my life when I was twenty-two.

I let love and fear destroy everything I ever wanted, and now I have a choice to make.

Run and hide, or stay and face the consequences.

I'd always known I wasn't allowed to love her.

I'd always accepted that I wasn't allowed to keep her.

But that didn't stop me.

I broke every rule and choked on every secret to have her.

The only problem is, those secrets aren't just hunting me anymore, they've found me.

I can't run.

I can't hide.

For a moment, I had it all. I had all my dreams and the girl I would kill for.

But now, I have to pay the price.

I have to pay...

And I won't survive.

A true coming-of-age story that spans a lifetime. This book deals with heavy subjects and is advised you check the Content Warnings on the Author's website.

Nerida + Aslan #2

PLEASE read LUNAMARE first - this is not a standalone thingy!

Well. This second book starts off right where we left our poor darlings in the first book.
Aslan just barely escaped out the window and now Nerida is trying to explain to her parents and the police what happened. That Aslan is not the bad guy here - that the bad thing happened at a party a while back.

And then it looks like things might be good again. But how long can Aslan hide in plain sight?
They go off to college hours away from home. They live a happy life. But for how long ...


Finally the second book.
I was kinda scared all through the book.
You know bad things will happen, but you don't really know what and when and how. Very nerve-destroying for this poor reader!
And then bad things happen and it's even worse than you thought! Ugh! I hated that. Poor Aslan - poor everybody!
I really liked this final part of Neri and Aslan's story.
I could still do without their weird porny BDSM-ish sexy moments and what happened in Turkey was a bit too hard and too long for me.... But I still loved this whole Neri and Aslan love story.
I won't tell you if we get a happy end.....
READ THIS BOOK - this duet!

COR AMARE was the perfect finale in this amazing duet.
Beautiful. Heartdestroying. Scary. Dangerous. Sexy. Sweet. Hard. Sad. Impossible. Hopeless. Hopeful.... And alll the things. READ IT!

🏳️‍🌈 πŸ‘» Dead Serious Case #3 Bruce Reyes πŸ‘»πŸ³️ Vawn Cassidy πŸ‘»πŸ³️‍🌈


 Tristan Everett was finally getting used to the strangeness that was his life. Being able to see the dead and helping them solve their unfinished business and cross into the light wasn’t so bad after all, especially when he was accompanied by his best friend, dead drag queen Dusty Le Frey. His boyfriend, sexy Scotland Yard detective Danny Hayes, now knew the truth about Tristan’s “gift,” and they were about to move in together officially.

Life was good.

That is until Death—honest to god, Death (aka The Grim Reaper)—pitches up in Tristan’s kitchen with an unusual stop Dusty’s ghostly hookup Bruce from crossing into the light, which may result in dire consequences.

Determined to do the exact opposite, Tristan and Danny assemble their own ragtag gang of one prickly witch, one snarky psychic private investigator, one living drag queen with an affinity for feathers, and one dead one with an affinity for a deceased rugby player in tiny shorts. Together they must solve a forty-year old cold case, while juggling a dose of the flu, a broken leg, a supernatural storm, and an immortal death deity with the looks and temperament of a sexy but grouchy CEO.

Seriously… what could possibly go wrong?



 ARC received via GRR for an honest review

I stumbled across the Dead Serious series last year whilst I was on an overseas holiday, and listened to the first book on audio.

And here we are at book 3, and the seried just keeps getting better and better.

Tristan, Danny and their new Scooby gang have now banded together to solve a cold case - and save the world!

Tristan and Danny are getting to that next stage in their relationship, after the I love yous but still in that honeymoon period. They are more comfortable and more open with each other - how Danny hasn't run a mile, how well he takes what happens that he can't see, well, that just makes me love him more.

I also kinda have a bit of  a crush on a Reaper hahaha.

I can not wait for more in this series.
