Exclusive Interview and ARC Giveaway: In Other Lands author, Sarah Rees Brennan

One time Sarah Rees Brennan wrote a story over a few months on her Livejournal, about Elliott, a bisexual red-headed irritant who loves books, who went to magic school in a magic world and immediately had a lot of bones to pick with the rules. Now that story is expanded for print as In Other Lands, and is available now for all your bickering found family, awkward slow crushes, and elven warrior matriarchy needs!

Authors Interviewing Authors: Marieke Nijkamp interviews Dahlia Adler

Just VisitingDahlia Adler. We all know her. We all love her. And most importantly, everyone who’s read her books will agree: we love those best of all! She is a much lauded blogger at B&N Teen Book Blog as well as the opening act of this year’s Queer Romance Month. She is the author of recently released, Just Visiting, a story of two friends who “struggle to learn who they are and what they want in the present [and] discover just how much they don’t know about each other’s pasts.” She is sweet and irreverent and has a razor sharp wit. I, for one, have been dying to learn more about her!

For November’s edition of Authors Interviewing Authors, I decided to do just that and fellow YA author, Marieke Nijkamp, so graciously volunteered to interview Dahlia. So without further introduction, here’s Marieke Nijkamp interviewing Dahlia Adler about life, love, and her latest release, Just Visiting.

FEFull Exposure by Amy Jo Cousins

Genre: Contemporary M/M Romance

Format: Kindle

In a nutshell: superlative writing, hotter than sin main characters: a tattooed Korean good boy and a bisexual rocker (swoon! my favorite), and a fast-paced, high octane plot that will leave you wishing this was way longer than 78 pages.

NA Review: The Girl Next Door by Amy Jo Cousins

Girl Next Door artThe Girl Next Door by Amy Jo Cousins

Published by: Samhain Publishing

Format: Kindle ARC

Genre: Romance

Reviewed by: Judith

Score: 10/10

People. Hands to yourselves and take one big step back: I have a new book boyfriend and he is off limits.

No really, while I may have shared in the past, this time I mean it.

Cash is mine.

We first met him in Off Campus and were given hints at how truly amazing he could be. But in The Girl Next Door, he proves hands down why he’s practically perfect (for me) in every way. He’s that jock with a heart of gold willing to play the lovable goof to spare someone pain; the sexy and extremely open minded hottie willing to try anything once and break all barriers in the bedroom; the dude who will give up a job and a home and a sweet life handed to him by his parents in order to mold himself into something self-made and worthwhile. He’s well…he’s Cash and no matter what some people might contend, he is ALL mine.

Quickie Review: Smoky Mountain Dreams by Leta Blake

smokey mountain dreamsSmoky Mountain Dreams by Leta Blake

Genre: Contemporary M/M

Score: 9/10

Plot: Sometimes holding on means letting go.

After giving up on his career as a country singer in Nashville, Christopher Ryder is happy enough performing at the Smoky Mountain Dreams theme park in Tennessee. But while his beloved Gran loves him the way he is, Christopher feels painfully invisible to everyone else. Even when he’s center stage he aches for someone to see the real him.

Bisexual Jesse Birch has no room in his life for dating. Raising two kids and fighting with family after a tragic accident took his children’s mother, he doesn’t want more than an occasional hook-up. He sure as hell doesn’t want to fall hard for his favorite local singer, but when Christopher walks into his jewelry studio, Jesse hears a new song in his heart.

Quick Review: Leta Blake is the reigning queen of sexy and her newest book just drives that point home. From the outside, Smoky Mountain Dreams seems like it will be a light hearted romp through a Dollywood-esque theme park. There’s the cute singing guitar player with a heart of gold and the hot bisexual dad just looking for a connection with someone after the loss of his wife. Simple, easy, right? And yet like her amazing Training Season, Leta manages to make this situation anything but. The conflicts and difficulties these two face run from the mundane — Jesse’s kids are trepidatious and unwelcoming — to the large scale — Jesse’s wife might not be as far removed from his life as Chris thinks. The relationship these two start is one fraught with difficulty but Leta makes it a wild, sexy ride to the finish line.

You’ll definitely enjoy: Chris has a heart of gold and seems like the perfect boyfriend for anyone (read: me); the naughty bits are hellaciously sexy and graphic in a way that does not feel tawdry but certainly is satisfying; Chris’ Gran is hilarious and belts out these stories and one liners that will have you laughing; theme park setting!

You might hate: the conflict that threatens Jesse’s relationship with Chris seems a bit overdone and Jesse’s reaction to Chris finding out a big secret is awful and degrading; Chris seems so in need of love that he confuses a good time between the sheets as the big L and he is quick to forgive Jesse anything; insta-love; theme park setting!
