I got this book through Xcite books to review.
It is M/M Erotic Romance. It's hot so beware :)

This is an anthology of five erotic short stories, it was short and sweet. I enjoyed most of the stories so I will review each one briefly so as not to spoil the fun :)

1. Beach Challenge by Elizabeth Coldwell (5 stars)
Reuben seems to have the right challenge to get the guy he wants, in a very fun way. Giving them a chance for privacy and a night he will never forget.Very sweet and nice :)

2. A Birthday Present by Ruth Ramsden (3 stars)
A guy gives his lover a birthday gift different than any other, introducing him to a new level of bondage.

3. The Anniversary Gift by Garland (5 stars)
Huston is an erotic writer who tries to add some flare into his love life with his lover Sug when things start to get dull. Is Sug ready for this addition? Really sweet! My favorite from the collection!!

4. Slash And Burn by Michael Bracken (3 stars)
Two skateboarding partners/lovers have a new encounters that changes their lives and portraying one of them as the Skateboard Hero.

5. The Collaring by Penelope Friday (2 stars) 

A formal binding celebration  is to be attended to bind the Master to his Slave. It includes some public humiliation. My least favorite!

Some quotes I enjoyed from the book:
"Like what you see?" he asked
"You know I do, Sug," I answered.
"You don't look like you do,"

"Sug," I spoke gently and laid a hand on his beating heart. "Please, don't take this personaly."
"Are you giving me the, we-need-to-take-some-time-apart, speech?" he asked still not looking at me.

"You'd cry too, Huston, if you couldn't turn on the man you loved."

"I'll be home late," he said pecking my lips. "Behave." He indicated the basement . I can't believe he actually implied that! Maybe he had heard the unwarranted guilt in my voice after all.
"Don't worry, Sug. You know the only other men in my life are the ones I write about."

243 pages

This is the second book in the With or Without series.

Note: It's M/M Romance!!

This ebook was recommended to me by Cori from the M/M Romance group in Goodreads for the Quarterly Gang Bang Challenge.

Chayton Winston is a veterinarian and a werewolf. When a wolf patient is brought in one day, he starts having weird reactions toward it. Then he realizes that this werewolf is his mate.
When his mate wakes up, he realizes the same thing and hops on his lap for a kiss. The problem is Chay is not gay, but Keaton Reynolds is.
when he is confronted by that fact, Keaton is not pleased and tried every way he could think of to put this incident behind him and Chay with it.
But Chay is not ready to let Keaton go, he has been wanting a mate since he was 4 years old, and now that he has one he is not letting go!

Now they both have to work on their relationship and the prejudices they are facing against gays, even from their closest family and friends.
They fight a battle while depending on each other and fully trusting in what is between them. So will their love succeed against all this?

I liked both characters, although Chay and his persistence was so cute! They were a nice couple, and the blossoming relationship between them was endearing.

Quotes I enjoyed from the book:
Joe Winston answered on the second ring, "Hey, Son. whatcha doing?"
"I really wish you wouldn't do that. It's creepy."
"what?" His father's voice was laced with amusement.
"You know what."
Joe laughed. "But that's what the caller ID is for. So I know who's calling before I answer it."

Chay snagged a pair of black sweatpants off a hanger and pulled out a T-shirt. when he turned, Keaton was standing in the middle of the bedroom with the blanket clutched around him, seeming for all the world like a kicked dog.

He smelled Chay before hearing the knock at the door. Keaton rolled his eyes. Even Chay's scent called to him. And damn if his idiot c*** didn't jump up and take note of Chay's arrival too. Stupid sensitive sense of smell. Damned Pheromones. Keaton sighed and stomped to the door. He flung it open and glared.
Chay smiled -damn him- and held out a pizza box and a six-pack of beer.

"Why are you here, Chay?"
"Because you are mine. I haven't figured out what the hell I' going to do with you yet, but it doesn't change the fact that you're my mate."

Keaton held a hand out. "But no kissing. No touching, no.. no.. nothing physical."
Yeah, why? his c*** wanted to know.

Keaton was everything he'd ever wanted in a mate. More actually, Bit had extra...well, bits.

His attention zeroed in on that tight little ass in front of him. Bit had a nice ass. Shit. His c*** stiffened again. Bit turned his head as he stapped up on the porch. "Chay? You comin'?"
Not yet, but you keep teasing me, I bet I can get pretty close. "Yeah."

Chay was happy as a pig in shit. The man seemed so comfortable in his own skin it was almost disgusting.

Bit's cool, calm demeanor after such a display of power was hot. Damn if Chay's c*** didn't stand up and wave hi.

This book is a short story I got for free from Smashwords.

She catches the bride and groom in an upstairs bedroom but stays in the dark. She then sees another couple at the boathouse rocking their world.

Sweet, nice story that introduced me to this new-to-me author. I enjoyed the writing style and the story very much.
Plus I loved the cover, it is so GORGEOUS and ROMANTIC.

Quotes I enjoyed from the book:
"Catch." Nicola tossed the slickly-coated ball gently across the table. David caught it, smelt tit as he would the cork of a delicate wine and then held it in front of his mouth, his tongue flicking out just twice to taste its flavour.
"Mmm. But don't these usually come in pairs?"
"They do. Another man has the second."

I got this book from Smashwords for free.

It's a story about an English woman attending an auction full of Mennonite marketers revealing more skin that their own women and making her a pleasing sight to look at.
Going around with her hidden camera, taking photos of the men and wishing for a recorder to record their unique, unintelligible voices and conversations, since she is interested in art.

She gets to buy something and meet a guy, then her hidden secret is revealed to the annoyed marketers and they decide to have some fun with her.

I enjoyed the writing of the story and the storyline, true it's short but very good.
I hope to read more books by this author, hopefully novels.
But I do wish of better cover art, I didn't particularly like this cover.

Quotes from the book:
In the darkness, I felt their weight pressing me against the buggy. Large calloused hands held me from all different places. Some cupped my breasts while others lifted me from the middle, poking their fingers through pant cloth, continuing their search for the heat. I knew some of them were angrey, and I looked back into the darkness for Aaron.

I didn't know what to say. these men were not the same industrious unfeeling men I watched earlier. They were not caricatures of the religion I thought they should be. I was wrong to invade their world with my art and camera. I backed away from the men and felt myself pulled into the arms of the at strong man who trapped my arms behind my back.

"Wrap me up inside you and let me forget about what I saw. This bust is going to make you and screw me. we both know that. Give me a little peace tonight." The last few words were whispered hot against Nate's jaw.

"We're involved, sort of."
"By involved, and the fact that you won't look at me, I'm interpreting that as playing mattress bingo?"

"You're," Al seemed to search his brain for a way to phrase it, "fuck buddies?"
"How 'bout fucked up buddies?" Ceasar rolled his eyes and shook his head. He had no idea what to call it. "I guess that's about as close as you could get."

Broken Boundaries by Evangeline Anderson

Broken Boundaries by Evangeline Anderson

Year Published: 2009

My  Rating: 5 stars

163 pages

This ebook was recommended to me by Nene from the M/M Romance group in Goodreads for the Quarterly Gang Bang Challenge.

This is one of the hardest reviews that I remember writing. The reason being I so much enjoyed this book and lived with the characters, it felt so alive and I kept going back to remember some scenes or quotes from the book.
It was so endearing and touching on so many levels. It was so hard for me to start another book after it and get into the feel again. It just drained me emotionally but in a very good way!

If there was a rating higher than 5 out of 5 stars I would have given this book. I could not recommend it enough for those M/M romance fans. Specially with the themes of Gay For you, Friends to Lovers, and Virgins.

All Chaz ever wanted to be was a Needle Gunner, since he has natural instincts and perfect reflexes.
So when he starts in the Lunar Academy of Excellence he is partnered with a Needle Pilot called Ferron, who just lost his partner a couple of months ago.
Now he is in for a real surprise, since Needle partners not only share there lives but also their skin. He discovers that to fly the Needle in the best manner and to have the perfect reflexes partners have to be really close to each other, and I mean really close.. Inside to be specific :)

All this to get ready for any invasion from the Lobster like aliens that could attack the Earth. So these heroes risk their lives and skin to help keep everyone safe on Earth.

So for Ferron to ready Chaz for this event, he slowly but surely tries to have Chaz relax with being in close proximity with him, specially that they share the same sleeping quarters and same bathroom.

It was not easy for Chaz since he was straight, or thought he was. even with a girlfriend back home. So he had to come to terms with his inner feelings and try to accept who he truly is.

I can't recommend it enough for M/M fans!!

Note: I loved the cover of the book, but it's quite revealing for me to put on my blog so I apologise :)

Quotes I enjoyed from the book:
"In order to make it work, you're going t o have to listen to orders and do what I say. Inside the Needle, the pilot outranks the gunner every time. And our lives may depend on how close we and and how quickly you follow my lead. Understand?"

"Chaz." Ferron lifted his chin with one finger, forcing Chaz to look up at him. "I'm sorry if my bluntness bothers you. But tell the truth..." His eyes softened and his voice dropped intimately. "Do you really hate it when I hold you down, when I force you to hold still while I touch you?"

"Spread your legs, Brighton," he said and there was a steely note of command in his voice Chaz knew he wouldn't be able to disobey, "Get ready to be fucked."

"What do you want?" Chaz asked, forcing his mouth to move. It was an effort just to get the words out.
"To take care of you," Ferron said curtly. "Like I do every night, Green Eyes."
"Not tonight." Chaz stepped into the shower, barely even wincing as the boiling water hit his flesh.

This is the first book in the With or Without series.

This ebook was recommended to me by Ozlem from the M/M Romance group in Goodreads for the Quarterly Gang Bang Challenge.

This was such a fun book to read, the heroes are adorable, specially Lainey with his innocence and clumsiness. It was a treat.
I gave it 4 stars although I loved the story but the writing was a bit off at times :)
I have the next two books in the series in line to be read for this challenge.

This ebook was recommended to me by Julia from the M/M Romance group in Goodreads for the Quarterly Gang Bang Challenge.

I thought of reading this book as the first book in the challenge since it's the shortest one, and I wanted to get a feel for this series.
I can't give any details since it was very short and I don't want to give any spoilers, but Victor and Jacob seem like likeable characters.
They go skating and seem cute together. I might start reading this series after I finish this challenge.
