My FB Group's Recommendations



I enjoyed Not a Game and highly recommend it. With its distinctly different characters, strong scenes of physical and emotional connection, and sweet HEA, it is a lovely m/m romance with excellent promise for a new series.

Prism Book Alliance

"To put it plainly - I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! The differences between Oliver and Jaime are there to see, and yet it still works. The attraction is instantaneous and hot. The connection is both comfortable and intense. Cardeno C. has managed to convey how not every body is perfect, but everybody is perfect for someone. With a mixture of romance, sexy scenes, heartbreak and humour, this book was a delight to read. Definitely recommended by me."


All Of Me is an emotional but sexy novella that would be the perfect way to spend an afternoon (or and hour or two if you're a speed reader).The author strikes the right balance between hot and sweet, making this a win for me.

Redz World

Cleverly written and wonderfully portrayed another all round happy feeling story for the holiday period. This book is really about second chances and realizing your opportunities when they present themselves and grasping on to them. ... I enjoyed this story a lot. It has a strong message that life is too precious to throw away and you should enjoy every day and take joy in the things you have.

Sinfully Sexy Book Reviews

Themeatticly, this is a story about coming out, which is kind of tired and over used, but I loved this version. Ben is very introspective throughout the story, but his self-depreciating humor makes it very entertaining. He often speaks to you, the reader, in a most endearing way. Micah was such a wonderful character. Strong and steady. And what made him so wonderful was that he melted into such a lover at just the right times. There is plenty of erotic sex in the book, but it never seemed gratuitous. It always just seemed fit the flow of the story as both men learned to love and feel comfortable with themselves and with each other. Perhaps the funniest character was Micah's mom. What a hoot! Micah's depiction of talking on the phone was hysterical. And then when you meet her, she's just as funny. The perfect Jewish mother!
