Every time we read a book, we are hoping that it will fit our mood because you want to be fair to a book. Reading something that doesn’t match your mood can feel like required high school reading at the worst of times. And I want to be very clear that Better Not Pout is not in any way like required high school reading, but it did not fit my mood, so your mileage will vary.

Better Not Pout is an opposites-attract and age-gap romance between Nick, a retiring Army MP, and Teddy, a man who runs a charity in his small town. They are brought together when Nick is asked to play Santa Claus for the charity. When Teddy ends up rescuing a stranded Nick from a snowstorm, they both give into their mutual lust. However, Nick does not want more than that because he’s retiring and will be leaving town, and Teddy is twenty years younger. So, they enter into a sex-only arrangement for a month. Except it’s never just sex.

Intercepted is a tricky book to review because there were things about it that I adored and things (characters, really) that made me want to claw my eyes out. So, instead of doing a rant or a rave, I'm going to try to help you figure out if you'll enjoy reading it. Sound good? Let's go.

All the Queer Holiday Novellas From Ninestar

Every year, Ninestar Press puts out a bunch of holiday novellas, but I always miss some because they a) have similar covers, b) come out in the middle of a thousand other holiday stories, and c) don't get the mainstream press coverage. So this year, I asked Ninestar for their full line-up so we could make our list and check it twice. They've left behind the all-the-same-cover idea, and I counted 4 lovely seasonal backgrounds this time.

Review: Tikka Chance on Me, by Suleikha Snyder

Gosh, I wish there was more of this book. I want more of these characters! But what we have is still very, very good. Tikka Chance on Me is about two people who return to their hometown for very different reasons. Pinky Grover came back home to small-town Indiana to take care of her sick mother and ended up staying well after her mom was better. She dropped out of her Ph.D. program to work at her family’s Indian restaurant (the only one for miles), and it’s nothing like the life she was living in Chicago. The only bright spot in her day is seeing local bad boy Trucker Carrigan. Trucker left Indiana and has come back to join the Eastville Eagles, the local semi-legitimate biker gang. He insists that he and his friends come to the restaurant once a week for Indian food, but his real motivation is to catch glimpses of Pinky. They’ve stayed clear of each other, limiting their interactions to sneaky glances and whispered flirting, but one chance encounter at the Walmart garden center (the sexiest part of any store) sets some steamy moments in motion.
