My To Review List for June 2019

This month I’ll be reviewing three standalones: two audiobooks and one e-book. In order of the date of my reviews, they are

Unscripted Hearts (standalone)

Unscripted Hearts by Peter Styles (Narrator - Randi Johnson)

Author: Peter Styles

Narrator: Randi Johnson

Themes and genres: Contemporary LGBT Romance, gay, parenthood

WARNING: Mature Content



I never imagined I’d get this kind of news. Suddenly, I have a nephew that is an orphan. I can’t understand what happened and I still half-expect my sister to walk through the door at any moment. He’s never leaving my arms again.

Yet here comes Mr. Big Shot, ready to steal the last bit of my sister that I have away from me. I’ll do anything to keep him. Even if that means seducing the guy that disappeared over a decade ago. His Hollywood dreams were more important than us small-town yokels. Wasn’t that what he said?

Sure, he’s a charmer, but he’s not getting my nephew.


When I donated my sperm to let my best friend and her wife have a child of their own, I never expected that I’d end up involved in their son’s life. We’d made an agreement long before the procedure took place and, though I’d wanted to be involved afterward, I had adhered to it. He was their son. I knew they’d take care of him.

At least, until something terrible happened. Now I have to face fatherhood with… him.

God, I’ve loved him since I was old enough to know what love is. He’s never had a clue. Now I’m supposed to cope with him so close, still ignoring what I want?

Kiss Me Again (standalone)

Kiss Me Again by Garrett Leigh

Author: Garret Leigh

Themes and genres: Contemporary LGBT Romance, gay, bisexual, bipolar, anxiety, depression, trauma

WARNING: Mature Content


Tree surgeon Aidan Drummond is content with his own company. He works alone, and lives alone, and it doesn’t occur to him to want anything else until a life-changing accident lands him in hospital. Then a glimpse of the beautiful boy in the opposite bed changes everything.

Ludo Giordano is trapped on the ward with a bunch of old men. His mind plays tricks on him, keeping him awake. Then late one night, a new face brings a welcome distraction. Their unlikely friendship is addictive. And, like most things in Ludo’s life, temporary.

Back in the real world, Aidan’s monochrome existence is no longer enough. He craves the colour Ludo brought him, and when a chance meeting brings them back together, before long, they’re inseparable again.

But bliss comes with complications. Aidan is on the road to recovery, but Ludo has been unwell his entire life, and that’s not going to change. Aidan can kiss him as much as he likes, but if he can’t help Ludo when he needs him most, they don’t stand a chance.

The Bride’s Brother (standalone)

The Bride's Brother by J.P. Oliver (Narrator - Randi Johnson)

Author: J.P. Oliver

Narrator: Randi Johnson

Themes and genres: Contemporary LGBT Romance, mistaken identity

WARNING: Mature Content



Is it wrong to be attracted to the groom in a wedding? Or I thought he was the groom! No, this guy is open and single and… into me? Is he into me?

He’d be the first for quite some time.

I have to admit, seeing all these weddings come and go can be a bit much when you go home all by yourself. But is it ethical to date a client’s brother?


He’s such a snob, but I guess he’s no worse than my sister. I’m always the one shoved around by everyone–but even him?

At least he understands when it’s a case of mistaken identity. I certainly never said I was marrying my sister. That would be one screwed up situation and besides, I’m not much for women anyway.

Still, I’ve never met quite anyone like him. He’s seen so much love, but he doesn’t have any for himself. I wouldn’t mind changing that.
