As I sit here, playing with my new Iphone (look out, KC is mobile) I realized I wrote absolutely no m/m reviews for the month of May. That just ain’t right. And, since my index finger now has early sings of carpal tunnel syndrome – since I can’t spell worth crap on a touch screen with my thumbs – I decided to make a short manlove list req. Isn’t that nice of me?
I’ve been following LB Gregg’s work since Gobsmack. I was excited to read that this was a May/Dec romance with the main character suffering from debilitating agoraphobia. For those of you who enjoy this author’s witty sense of writing, In and Out is probably Gregg’s best work so far. I love how Holden is an agoraphobic, wealthy man; while Adam is shy, young (virgin) man who can’t read people’s emotions. A little more serious, same witty inner dialogue, and a virgin – I couldn’t put this one down. Thanks to Chris from Stumbling Over Chaos, I won this copy (thank god).
“In that moment, right there in my kitchen, I want him. Not from afar, as I had yesterday as my must. No, this was the real deal. I desired him. Adam. I wanted the man- and perversely, that just made me want him more. I imagined Adam, whimpering, and grunting under me, and Christ, I found myself asking another stupidly impertinent, unbelievably forward question. “So you’ve never followed through.”
I wanted to lick his mouth and taste sunshine. I wanted to smell the dirt on his clothes and the soil under his nails. Then I wanted to bend him over my kitchen table…
Jay didn’t expect to be one of the very few survivors of the virus that decimated the country, leaving shambling, ravenous zombies behind. Fighting for his life amongst the dead, he keeps moving until the day he’s surrounded and facing his bloody end—and shockingly, another zombie saves him. But not just any zombie… it’s Dave, the first man Jay ever loved, and there’s something special about him even now, in the midst of the horror around them.
How could I not read a zombie manlove book?! Although it is only 75 pages the author was able to pack in a wel- written story that I loved. My only wish, because I didn’t want it to end, was that it was a little longer.
“You want my brains, motherf*cker? Come and get them!” (yells at zombies)
Dave, I whispered, not even knowing if I could be heard above the sound of streaming water. “Are you really in there?”
His movements were still jerky as his hands traveled up my back and pulled me against him. Flush against his chest, I didn’t, and couldn’t, move away as his lips closed over mine.
It was all the answer I needed.
This series was recommended by Janna from EroticRomReader, I had read other books by Ally Blue and thought ‘just ok’. This series is like crack I tell you! You can’t read just one. This is probably one of my favorite paranormal m/m series I’ve read to date – think Paranormal Activity meet gay for you theme.
PS usually I don’t scare easily with books, but I woke up hubs one night after I finished book 3 shaking him, “There is something in the closet. Do something!” True story.
