Back to the Future Untold Tales and Alternate Timelines Review

Back to the Future creator/screenwriter Bob Gale returns with all-new tales from the twisting and turning timeline that made Back to the Future a, well... TIMELESS pop-culture phenomenon! Take a trip back to 1985 and be there when Doc Brown and Marty McFly first meet, and then jump even farther back, to 1945, to witness Doc's involvement in the super-secret Manhattan Project. Collects issues #1-5.

Back to the Future (Back to the Future Untold Tales and Alternate Timelines #1)

This graphic novel is mostly focused on Doc but it also has Marty, Clara, Biff and many others from the movies. It's a collection of scenes that weren't in the movies. Some are an alternate or add in and others feel like explanations or behind the scenes extras. The reader gets to see Marty and Doc's first meeting, Doc's younger days and new adventures in time travel. Many of the stories are relayed by Doc to his and Clara's children Jules and Verne.

Back to the Future fans are sure to love these tales. It's also family-friendly, great for all ages.

Kestrel's Talon by Bey Deckard Review

released May 23, 2016

Novel (135,031 words)

Genre(s): Fantasy, Triad, LGBT/QUILTBAG

Following the Prentish/Nemarri war, Kes is rejected by his homeland under the guise of religious purity laws. Though he's spared execution, the proud Nemarri's fate is only marginally more merciful than death when he is sold into sexual slavery at a prosperous pleasure house.

Despite his stoic endurance, Kes knows he’s reaching his breaking point, but there is nothing he can do—there is no path to freedom in the Holy Prentish Empire, only a lifetime of humiliating servitude.

That is, until a beautiful young slave and his formidable master approach Kes in the marketplace and make an astonishing offer to take him home with them. The only problem: “home” is the accursed Horthmont Castle from the scare-stories of Kes’s childhood.

Thrown into a world of living myth, powerful magic, and ancient gods, Kes learns the secrets kept hidden by Horthmont’s thick blackstone walls. There he discovers something he thought he’d never know again: hope for the future.


What to say about this book? Hmm. Well... I like writing triads. I really do. And I love these characters dearly... especially the one not mentioned in the title (you'll see). It's not particularly dark... at least I don't think so. It's mostly a story about trust and hope and healing. 

It was going to be a standalone, but as I was writing it, I realized that it would take more than one book to tell the whole story. So this is the beginning... and I think it's a good beginning. :)

Kestrel's Talon (The Stonewatchers, #1)

4.5 stars

Kestrel's Talon has a historical fantasy, epic tale feel. Inside is a wholly developed world with separate peoples, laws, gods, mythologies and histories. There are castles, magic, slaves and mysteries. It's full of unique characters with differences in background, social status, physical stature, sexual identification and so on.

The story begins with Kes. He's a slave at a pleasure house. For a captured soldier, this is a very tough pill to swallow. One day from across a crowded marketplace, Kes shares a moment of eye contact and connection with a fellow slave that will change his life forever. Talon has a powerful skill and an unbroken spirit. Count is the third piece of the puzzle, a Master. He's reticent and strong, feared by many and known truly by few.

This story has action, mystique and romance. It's erotic in parts and full of riddles and symbols. KT is able to pull the reader's heartstrings while calling to their inner problem solver. Also, this book is great at effortlessly expanding boundaries in sexual orientation. Give it a try. Maybe it's the exotic novel that's missing from your life.

Love in a Small Town by Zoe York Audio Tour Review


Love in a Small Town by Zoe York A Pine Harbor Audiobook 
Publication Date: March 15, 2016


Purchase: Audible | iTunes | Amazon

Six years. Two break-ups. One divorce. They should be over each other. Rafe Minelli knows better than to tell his wife no, particularly since they aren’t married anymore. She can’t hightail it out of town, though, not when they’ve finally broken through the post-divorce cold war status quo. Olivia Minelli needs to leave Pine Harbour. It’s just too hard to see Rafe moving on without her – even if he says he doesn’t want to. But when a new and exciting job falls into her lap, she needs to choose: protect her heart, or take the new job and risk getting emotionally entangled with her ex-husband. Again.

About Zoe York


New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Zoe York is a busy mom of two young boys and the creator of modern, sexy, small town contemporary romances. Her debut novel, What Once Was Perfect, started the popular Wardham series, and her first military romance, Fall Out, was released as part of the international bestselling SEALs of Summer super bundle. She lives in London, Ontario and is currently chugging Americanos, wiping sticky fingers, and dreaming of heroes in and out of uniform.


Love in a Small Town (Pine Harbour, #1)

Rafe and Olivia definitely have a connection. They fell in love right away, and they've never fallen out. Love isn't the issue for them. Everything else is. Their lives and wants never really matched up. Eventually this led to a divorce, but now two years later, they're still stuck in a limbo. They can't move on, but they can't go back to that unhappiness either.

It's nice to read a story with established couples instead of instant attraction. These two are passed that. They have to really put in the effort to make it work. Also, their jobs add some interesting bits to the storyline. I enjoyed it and will probably check out more books in the Pine Harbour series.

The Spiral Down by Aly Martinez Blog Tour Review

iBooks: Pending
Nook: Pending

I was afraid to fly.
He made me soar.

After years of climbing the ladder of success in the music industry, I finally had everything I could want.
Yet I still found myself wandering through life alone.

Captain Evan Roth was the one man I never saw coming.
Tall, dark, mysterious… Straight.

We were both damaged beyond repair and searching for something so elusive we weren’t sure it even existed.

But, when two broken souls collide in midair, falling is a given.

I just never expected to crave the spiral down.


“How about you and one of your girls come out to my show in L.A. next week? My treat. Dinner, drinks, the whole deal. Evan and I would love to take you two beautiful ladies out for an evening.”
“Excuse me?” he exclaimed, cocking his head to catch my gaze.
I leaned back into my seat and lifted a hand to massage his shoulder. I was barely able to suppress a moan when the angle of his firm trap muscle met my palm.
Fuck, this guy was built like a brick wall. And I was going to love every second of watching him crumble for me.
“Oh, come on, Evan. It’s the least we can do. Double date.” I winked at Jessica. “You can fly them out! My plane should be ready by then.”
Jessica’s eyes jumped to Evan’s. “You’re a pilot?” Her smile spread irritatingly wide.
Back off, Ginger Spice.
Snapping my fingers in her direction, I corrected, “He’s my pilot.”
Subtlety was not a virtue I possessed. Was subtlety a virtue at all?
“Your temporary pilot,” he amended before shaking his head and then tipping his beer to his lips for a long pull.
“Anyway. Do we have a date?” And, by date, I meant feeding her dinner while I attempted to work my way into Evan’s pants.
She pressed one finger to her lips and then nervously flashed her eyes around the cabin.
“Oops. Sorry.” I shrugged sheepishly. Lifting my drink to my mouth, I discreetly passed her my cocktail napkin and then not-so-discreetly brushed my forearm against Evan’s chest as I pulled away.
He offered her a tight smile just before she disappeared.
I grinned proudly.
“What the fucking hell was that?” he whisper-yelled at me.
“That was me getting a woman’s number.”
He arched an eyebrow. “A woman. Really?”
“What? Is that not allowed?” I feigned innocence.
He clenched his fist in his lap, and it made me suddenly aware that my own hands had stopped trembling—and in record time, I should note. Evan seemed to be quite useful in the art of distraction.
He leaned closer. “Don’t bullshit me. I looked you up. You’re…” He stopped, unwilling to say the big, bad “G” word.
“I’m what?” I taunted.
He rolled his eyes and chugged the rest of his beer.
We went back to silence until Jessica came back by with another drink, complete with her phone number written on the napkin.
“I’m not going on a double date,” Evan said as I tucked the napkin into my pocket. “You want me to fly them out? Not a problem. Schedule it with Jackson. But that’s the extent of my professional responsibilities. And, since I’m off the clock right now, I’d also like to mention that I think whatever play you’re planning to run on that woman is fucked up.”
My head snapped to his. “I’m sorry. Play?” I asked with more attitude than I had originally planned.
“Yes. Play,” he sneered.
I stirred my drink. “Let me get this straight. I’m offering to fly her out in a private jet, feed her dinner at one of the best restaurants in the city, and put her front row at a concert that has been sold out for over a year. That doesn’t seem like a play to me. It sounds like I’m trying to do something nice for a woman I was rude to earlier.” I casually leaned back in my seat. “My conscience doesn’t ‘play’ when it comes to apologies.”
“Right. Well, maybe you should have a chat with your conscience, because she looks like she just won the date of a lifetime. Meanwhile, you don’t even like women.” He stalled, no doubt looking for just the right word to express his disgust without sounding like a bigot. Judging by his gentleness when we’d taken off, he wasn’t the type of guy to go for the fag bomb.
I watched him intently, excited to see how he was going to handle this.
“You’re gay.”
I frowned at his lack of creativity. “Not that it’s any of your damn business. But I’ll have you know I love women.”
It wasn’t a lie. I adored women. Especially Levee and Robin.
I just didn’t like pussy. Meh. Semantics.
He gaped. “You’re bi?”
“And I’ll repeat: None of your damn business. But yeah. Do you have a problem with that?”
Again, it wasn’t necessarily a lie.
Was I bisexual? Fuck no. My cock was in no way an equal opportunity employer.
I was somewhat bilingual though. I knew how to ask for a blow job in English and Spanish. I pretended that was what he meant.
Chupame la verga.

The Spiral Down (The Fall Up, #2)

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Henry is a big time star in the music world. He preforms, writes, has his own label, etc. He came from nothing and is now one of the most wanted men in world, but no one has truly ever wanted the real, plain, everyday Henry so he's become someone who self-sabotages his relationships.

Evan hates being labeled. Gay, straight, bi, it doesn't matter; he's not planning to give anyone the power to break his heart again. He's looking for safe and easy not emotional, complicated or potentially painful.

Henry is terrified of flying, but sometimes it's necessary for a musician on tour. Evan is a pilot who happens to be called in one day to fly Henry's plane. Sparks begin flying immediately in the form of humor, snark, lust and all kinds of attitude and don't stop.

For those wondering, yes, this can be read as a standalone. Some of the same characters are in both books so it will probably make your reading experience better to read both in order, but it isn't absolutely necessary.

I read a whole lot, like all the time, and I've had a hard time finding a book I loved lately. I found it! The Spiral Down is wonderful. I was worried because it's the author's first M/M, and the previous book of this series was only okay to me, but she knocked it out of the park in my opinion. I HIGHLY recommend it. The entire book is entertaining. It's funny, emotional, genuine, sexy and everything I want in a read. I’m deeply in love with these men and their story. ♥︎
