My First GRL is the Very First GRL

The Very First ever GRL Retreat

There has been some talk about the GRL Retreat in New Mexico This year… The last 2 GRL retreats have been wonderful experiences so I have heard. I wasn’t luck enough to be able to attend them or this years but I can say I was one of the Lucky few to have been able to experience the very first GRL retreat. I can also say with no doubt in my mind it was one of the most life changing experiences of my life.
To be perfectly honest I almost wasn’t able to go but through a few miracles and a Wonderful Carol Lynne I was able to go with money to spend. Anyways that part is neither here nor there except to the lengths a writer will go to sometimes to make a readers dreams come true. The first GRL was held in Carol Lynne’s neck of the woods (not specifically remember where I want to say Kanas it was flat and lots of land) Anyways the writers that where there was Fab, kind, caring and the readers were respectful and fun. I was given a Tape Measure, which to everyone’s Ummm Well let’s just say Silver walked up to many, and offered to measure their Manhood.. Look if you know me you know I am capable of trouble… The good kind of trouble though and no one was hurt in the nature of any of my games!!
The first night we hung out drank a little, we all ended up in another person’s hotel room where I whipped out my Laptop and the Wonderful J.P Bowie informed us which Penis was Photoshopped and which weren’t.. Everyone has fun and I nearly peed myself laughing so hard. One Day we did dinner, a Movie and Desert All in the same place at the same time!! That Was so much FUN!!! We had a BBQ at the hotel and we did some Drinking then we all went to Carol Lynn’s house got a Huge party with gift, games, drinking and loads and Loads of fun.
Honestly it was one of the greatest weekends of my life and Carol, JP and many other wonderful writers have spent every GRL since making them better and better. It hurts my heart that I haven’t been able to experience such a wonderful time again since then and I have plans of someday repeating the fun again. If you haven’t been able to attend a GRL I suggest  you try and get to one it is an experience you will forever remember and Love!!
here are some Pictures from GRL.. There are a 101 of them on Carol Lynne’s Yahoo group and I borrowed these from there because Mine got lost.. I picked ones I was in because I want to respect those who where there and not plaster all of the all over the World Wide Web.

My Review of Relentless Love by AJ Llewellyn

Relentless Passion By AJ Llewellyn

URL:  http://www.jasminejade.com/p-8884-relentless-passion.aspx

ISBN: 9781419931901

 

Genre: M/M Erotic Romance

Rating: HOT

Book Length: Novella

Reviewer: Silver Pixie

Book Summery: Twins Alex and Zeca love to switch identities. It’s harmless fun until Alex wants to date a hot tourist visiting their home of Capri, and asks Zeca to take his place on a date with Alex’s current beau, Antonio. After a day in Antonio’s arms—followed by a long, lusty weekend in his bed during a trip to Naples—Zeca discovers switching places with Alex isn’t so harmless after all. Especially when he realizes he’s falling hard for his brother’s boyfriend.

While struggling with his feelings for Antonio, consoling his semi-celebrity father (who’s having woman troubles) and trying not to upset Alex (who might be in love with Antonio…or his tourist tryst…or maybe the neighbor lady), Zeca wonders how any of them will make it through all the relationship woes with hearts intact.

As Antonio says, “Love has a way of fixing things itself.”

The wonderful thing about reading AJ Llewellyn’s books sometimes is his ability to transport his readers to exotic locations. Relentless Passion doesn’t disappoint. In this wonderful Novella we meet Identical twins Alex and Zeca. Like most Twins they are very much alike but different at the time same time. Alex is more outspoken, carefree and energetic of the 2. Like most Identical Twins they also dress alike and often switch places. However when Alex asks Zeca to Switch places with him so that he can date a new comer named Hugh to the island. Zeca finds out that maybe this time he has bitten off more then he can chew or has he finally met someone who can see him for who he really is?

I was sucked in straight from page one. There isn’t anything about this book I can complain about. Zeca and Alex were true to life Identical Twins with the same pros and cons of being identical Twins. Very few people can tell them apart despite their personality differences, and Alex is selfish and self absorbed. Zeca and Alex also have deep seeded love issues that I don’t want to talk too much about but affect them both emotionally and in Zeca’s case even physically.  What I loved most about this book is Zeca’s undying loyalty to his brother even when faced with loosing his true love and even his heart. Antonio takes the brothers switching with grace and style most men wouldn’t. We also find out a little known secret about Antonio as to why he is ok with the switch.

On my Scale of Erect Peni Scale of Limp to Harder then a Rock (or 1-10) I give Relentless Passion a Harder then a rock Rating (a 10+++++++) Its Hot its sexy and it has a great story line what more can a girl ask for.

On my Scale of Wait till Pay Day Or Sell Your Children (Furry and other) sell them. I don’t honestly think that anyone should have to wait to read this book or the Follow up book Relentless Love!Image

My Review of Sins of Winter

Sins of Winter

By A.J. Llewellyn | D.J. Manly | Serena Yates |

URL:  http://www.total-e-bound.com/product.asp?P_ID=1549

ISBN: 978-0-85715-894-9

Genre: Gay MM/ Contemporary/ Paranormal

Rating: HOT

Book Length: Anthology

Reviewer: Silver Pixie

Book Summery:

Book three in The Seven Deadly Sins Collection of Anthologies
The seven deadly sins: lust, wrath, greed, gluttony, envy, pride and sloth.

The Sins of Winter weaves a general thread of revelation loosely tying these tales together. Acedia (a precursor to sloth), Greed and Pride, are explored in these hot m/m tales involving action, burning hot sex and out-of-this-world adventures that will warm you up…fast!
‘Toppling Pedestals’ by D.J. Manly
In ‘Toppling Pedestals’, DJ Manly deals with the sin of pride.

The thought that there was something better out there took Tristan away…then pride almost broke his heart.

Tristan, Samuel and Casey had been friends since grade one. When Casey-the doctor’s son-goes off to university, Samuel and Tristan are left behind in their small hometown. Samuel comes from a poor background and has no money for school. He takes a job in the hardware store that Tristan’s parents own.

Tristan decides to work at the store for a year before joining Casey at school. He’s expected to run the store eventually but wants to explore what’s out there first. Breaking away from the town means breaking Samuel’s heart. When tragedy brings Tristan home again, will pride stand in the way of letting Samuel know how he feels?
‘If Come’ by A.J. Llewellyn
In If Come, AJ Llewellyn deals with the ancient deadly sin of acedia.

It was once considered the ‘noonday demon’-a melancholia that is brought about by repetitive work. Writing, marriage and monkhood were the three main occupations said to induce it.

Zam Carmarthen is a mildly successful Hollywood screenwriter struggling with a debilitating depression that prevents him from completing anything he starts. When he lands an ‘If Come’ deal with a major Hollywood producer, he’s finally forced to focus on his work and not give into the strange malaise gripping him. In order to ever move ahead in the movie business, he must complete the pilot episode of his proposed TV series, Angel Inn. If his producer is able to sell the series, Zam will be a very rich man. Everything he has worked for can be his.

Paralyzed by his depression, he finds unusual solace in the form of his arch nemesis, Dominic Glass-a surgeon turned super successful screenwriter…and the man who rewrote Zam’s hit screenplay for his own glory.

Can Zam overcome the depression Dominic calls acedia, which threatens to derail his whole life? Can he move on from his long time sex buddy Jason? And what about these new feelings he has for Dominic in spite of their rocky history? Will Zam get it together…or will Dominic once again walk away with all the credit for something Zam created?
‘Winter Challenge’ by Serena Yates
In Winter Challenge, Serena Yates deals with the sin of greed.

Pediatrician Noah Goldwin receives some bad news-his father has died and his greedy elder brother doesn’t only take over the family business, he wants the entire fortune for himself. So, he informs Noah that he was adopted and washes his hands of him. Noah, who never knew of his, past, sets out to find his roots.

An elderly aunt, a mysterious ring and a location in the far north of Canada are his only hints…until he meets a tall, dark stranger who may have the solution to all his questions. There is only one problem-Ataro lives in a parallel dimension.

Will the two men be able to find a way to join forces? How will they defeat the power hungry enemies on Ataro’s world? And are inter-dimensional relationships even possible?

 

I loved Toppling Pedestals and it is one of the best Shorts I have read of DJ Manly’s in a while. I adore all of DJ’s novels don’t get me wrong but this book spoke to me. I have no use really for the 7 deadly sins but I do understand what it means to place someone on a Pedestal and not letting go of my pride long enough to tell then what they really mean to me. I understand what it means to loose a chance in life.  For the record so I don’t sound stalkerish this loss has nothing to do with any writers past or present that I know… My Best Male Friend in high school who I was crushing on all 4yrs and I became close after high school. He helped me to rise my now 15yr daughter as his own. I let my pride over ride something good that I had and now I am left with what ifs. We lost touch for a long time but I had hit a low in my life so low that I reached out to the only person I thought could help. He and I have reconnected as best friends and that is enough for me.  Tristan and Sam reminded me so much of my friend and I that it was sadly scary.  Sometimes we don’t see that the best thing we have in life is right in front of us and it is sad that sometimes it takes something or someone else to show us what it is that we are missing and to give us the courage to let go of our pride and risk looking like an ass to tell someone what they mean to us.

 

In If Come, AJ Llewellyn deals with the ancient deadly sin of acedia. For those of you who don’t know what Acedia is it describes a state of listlessness or torpor, of not caring or not being concerned with one’s position or condition in the world. It can lead to a state of being unable to perform one’s duties in life. Its spiritual overtones make it related to but distinct from depression.[1] Acedia was originally noted as a problem among monks and other ascetics who maintained a solitary life. (wikipedia)  This is a feeling many people I think suffer from and I know for me it’s debilitating sometimes. I cannot begin to rave about If Come by AJ. Again He has out done himself by making the readers put themselves in the book and experience the feelings Zam and Dominic are. Zam is crippled by his Acedia to the point that it threatens his well being. However we learn as the story goes on that in Hollywood new dogs are up to old tricks. I love how AJ leaves us wondering as to who is real and who is fake.. If Come is light hearted, deeply moving and brought tears of sadness and joy to me as I read it. By the end I had hope that Dreams do come true even in the glitter of Hollywood. However sometimes those dreams are better then we dream them to be when you find someone who loves accepts and understands you better then you do yourself.

 

Last But Never Least Winter Challenge By Serena Yates. I have to be honest but my experiences with Serena have all been books she has Co wrote with AJ Llewellyn together they have always been brilliant however I have to say after reading Winter Challenge she is truly on my Writers to buy from now on. This story is BRILLIANT!!!!  Noah is a Pediatrician who finds out a secret he would never have expected and that secret leads him to Canada and the Man that he is connected to in ways his clinical mind had a hard time to wrap itself around. Ataro knew at a very young age that his heart connection was stolen from him. But it wasn’t until he was an adult that he realized how important this person really was to him and how connected they really were. When fate intervenes again and delivers his chosen to him Ataro and Noah realize that they are going to have to fight more then the unknown to stay together.  Greed and jealousy threaten our new lovers. Will they be able to find those who seek to harm them or will they fail their Winter Challenge.

 

On my Erect Peni Scale of one to Ten As a WHOLE Sins of Winter Gets a 10+ Hands down Together DJ,AJ and Serena are Hotter then Hell!

Toppling Pedestals, as a stand-alone is a 10+++++++ DJ as always Knows His stuff and its hot, smart and touching. I CANNOT recommend this story more. This is a MUST READ!

If Come By AJ Llewellyn of course is a 10+++++as well. This story however does hold a special place in my heart. I cannot recommend this book more, As a stand alone or together with the others its well worth the read.

Winter Challenge By Serena Yates is 10++++++++ on my Erect Peni scale as well. It is rare for me to find a new writer that I love as much as I do AJ Llewellyn and DJ Manly. I am privileged to have found someone else who is as talented, heart warming and sweet as Serena. I was touched by her story and many others will be as well.

In an effort to try and keep this review from being any longer then it already is I want to close this by Saying on my Scale of Wait to pay Day to Buy or Sell the Kids and/or Fur Babies. SELL, SELL, SELL, and Buy, Buy, Buy this book!!!!

My Review Of Paper Valentine By AJ Llewellyn

Paper Valentine by AJ Llewellyn

URL: http://www.total-e-bound.com/product.asp?strParents=&CAT_ID=&P_ID=1074

ISBN: 978-0-85715-464-4

Genre: Victorian Era/ Gay MM

Rating: Burning

Book Length: Novella

Reviewer: The one and Only Silver Pixie

Book Summery:

London, 1840. At the height of Victorian hypocrisy, two men meet and fall in love. Their romance is forbidden, punishable even by death, but their passion blossoms thanks to a paper Valentine.

Saint Valentine’s Day has become a new and very popular day for lovers. Thousands of Londonites are clamouring for the ideal romantic gift. While men buy chocolate and posies, they yearn for something more unusual, more personal. Enterprising brothers Aldon and Samuel Barnaby hit upon the idea of paper Valentines, creating lavish presentations decorated with silk, lace, and paper flowers.

Aldon is fortunate to have his perfect valentine going to his expectant wife, Geneve, but Samuel still longs for his own true love, pouring his heart and soul into his beautiful creations. Samuel’s romantic verses inside his paper Valentines are in huge demand, yet not a single local girl can lay claim to his heart…because his passion lies not in a woman, but another man—Jude, a handsome but shy widower.

Jude’s heart, haunted by grief, hasn’t been ready to consider marriage again. But slowly, through his inclusion in the Barnaby family’s lives…and his frequent excursions to stop and stare at the Barnabys’ shop window…he begins to wonder in what direction his future lies.

Can Samuel possibly allow his heart to explore love with another man? Could Jude ever love him in return? He sends Jude an exquisite, anonymous paper Valentine, not suspecting that his entire world is about to be turned upside down…

Just in time for Valentine’s Day I remembered an awesome love story that fits the season. In this AJ Llewellyn novel we meet Samuel and Jude. Both men fit the classic image you would have of London in the 1840’s.  Samuel and his Brother Aldon are printers and hatch an idea to make paper Valentines for the people of London and sell them in their shop. Amidst this Samuel’s very pregnant sister in law Geneve tries as she feels is her duty to play match maker. What she and Samuels brother fails to realize is the grieving widower Jude has found love again but in the arms of someone who in all actuality could get him killed. Little known Historical Fact I learned in this book was buggery was illegal and punishable by death. In order for gay men to meet others some dressed as woman in places that were called Molly Houses. The Queen thought that woman were not capable of loving woman the same way so it was only illegal for men to fornicate or bugger as it seems to have been called. In the end confessions are made and promises kept. But the Question remains do Jude and Samuel get their Happy ending or will fear rule their hearts?

This was a short story for AJ and for all the 69 pages it was on my e-reader it was well worth the read. Of course like with most of AJ’s books I learned a lot about history, the fun stuff that most history teachers nowadays leave out of their lessons. I loved this sweet natured fun hearted book. It warmed my heart from the very first page. Jude’s and Samuel’s struggle was palatable and heart breaking at times. You honestly felt what the characters were feeling. You hurt for them when they hurt and you yearned for them when they yearned for each other. This is honestly something that is sometimes lacking in more mainstreamed books. I feel AJ has once again out done himself.

On a Scale of 1-10 on my erect peni scale I give AJ Llewellyn’s Paper Valentine a 10+++. It’s Hot Romantic and heartwarming this book didn’t need a lot of sex to make it sexy or hot. The lead up to the actual sex leaves you panting and wanting more.

On my scale of It Can Wait till Pay Day and Sell the Kids… Darlings sell the kids. This book honestly can be the best Valentine you can buy for yourself EVER!

 Book Summery

 Brand was chosen as a young man to become part of the supreme leader’s security force. With a pass to see the Extreme Games competition one night, Brand becomes enamored with Tanner Chapale, one of the athletes. In spite of the curfew, and being just weeks away from graduation, Brand crashes the after-event party and finds his obsession. One night of extreme games in Tanner’s room, and they both go their separate ways.

 Seven years later, Brand is head of security for Haven 1’s supreme leader, and Tanner is Extreme Sport Champion. When Tanner neglects to immediately visit the ruler upon his return, Brand is ordered to arrest him. Worried that Chapale will end up one of the ruler’s sex slaves, he temporarily smoothes things over and goes to warn Chapale.

 The sexual attraction is as hot as ever, and after resuming their extreme sexual activities, Brand agrees to escort Chapale to a dinner hosted by the ruler. But is Brand to become the unwitting pawn in a game where the rules haven’t been laid out? And what extreme sports will Brand be expected to play in the ruler’s private chambers?

 DJ has managed to do it again. It is this girl’s opinion that no matter what it is that DJ manages to write about there are 3 things this girls is always guaranteed to need a cold shower and a change of panties when I am done reading. Extreme Sports doesn’t disappoint.  The instant and long time attraction between Brand and Chapale is not only truly palatable it’s damn near edible!

 There is a little bit of some rough BDSM sex in this book so if D/s makes your queasy you might not want to read this novel. DJ doesn’t delve do deeply into the Dom/submissive relationship but you know damn well who the boss is and how kinky the sex is wanted and needed. The truest thing said in DJ’s Novel is to make a great Dom one must experience what it’s like to be the sub. A lesson that Chapale went to great lengths to make sure Brand learned. 

The only Question remains is does Brand learn the lesson or does all of Chapale’s hard work to get the man of his dreams all in vain?? I know the answer but this little book whore ain’t telling!! I SUGGEST you go out and get this book!

 On a scale of 1-10 on my Erect Peni Scale this book is truly HOT as hell and is a 10+ at least… Sorry you can drive a nail in with how hot this book is… well in this girls humble book whoreish opinion at least lol.

On my Must have scale of 1-10 Extreme Sports is an EXTREMEly must have book! So sell the kids and run out ASAP and get it!!!!
