Throwback Thursday #5

This feature should “throw” you back a year ago. This feature is made by me and I’ll post my read books in the CW (calender week) the year before.
I explain it: it’s the year 2016, I throw back to 2015. Every Thursday I look up which CW we have and go this exact CW in the year before back. 2017 I throw back to 2016 and so on. 😉
But let’s see how it works. 😉

Calender Week 40 2016 (september 3rd – october 9th) — Calender Week 40 2015 (september 28th – october 4th)

In the span of september 28th until october 4th those were my great reads:

Always by Kindle Alexander


Born to a prestigious political family, Avery Adams plays as hard as he works. The gorgeous, charismatic attorney is used to getting what he wants, even the frequent one-night stands that earn him his well-deserved playboy reputation. When some of the most prominent men in politics suggest he run for senate, Avery decides the time has come to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps. With a strategy in place and the campaign wheels rolling, Avery is ready to jump on the legislative fast track, full steam ahead. But no amount of planning prepares him for the handsome, uptight restaurateur who might derail his political future.

Easy isn’t even in the top thousand words to describe Kane Dalton’s life after his father, a devout Southern Baptist minister, kicks him out of the family home for questioning his sexual orientation. Despite all the rotten tomatoes life throws his way, Kane makes something of himself. Between owning a thriving upscale Italian restaurant in the heart of downtown Minneapolis and managing his long-term boyfriend, his plate is full. He struggles to get past the teachings of his childhood to fully accept his sexuality and rid himself of the doubts brought on by his religious upbringing. The last thing he needs is the yummy, sophisticated, blond-haired distraction sitting at table thirty-four.

Oh Lord have mercy, this was a tough read… I hear from almost everybody how infected they were after the reading and I can say: I include myself in…

It was a great, powerful read but the end cracks you up. Put tissues beside you because you NEED them…. ;__; ❤ Totally a page turner but sad as hell… Be aware of it.

What I think about it?

This was a bit disappointing because the case in the book was good… The MC didn’t really captured me totally and I was disappointed by him at the end… I didn’t saw any changes…
Right now one of the few books with a 3-star rating… Very rar for me…

A Strong Hand by Catt Ford


Nicholas Sayers, needing money for college, takes a job as assistant to infamous photographer Damian Wolfe. It’s just taking pictures, right? Wrong. While Nick has never questioned what kind of man he is or what he truly wants in life, working for Damian during a BDSM photo shoot opens his eyes to all sorts of sexual possibilities, and many of them include the handsome Mr. Wolfe.

Damian has serious doubts about getting involved with a younger man who knows nothing about the BDSM lifestyle, but Nick’s adventurous and humorous approach to new experiences is far too alluring to resist. Although he knows it might be a mistake, Damian takes Nick into his life.

Flirting on the edges of control, submission, and pain excites Nick more than he would have ever dreamed possible. With Damian, Nick learns about his own deeply hidden desires and finds out that relinquishing control doesn’t make him weak, having someone else in control of his sexual pleasure simply heightens it. And the reverse is true for Damian: Control turns him on. So they set out to explore these sensual boundaries together, neither expecting to find love along the way.

What I think about it?

This was one of the earliest BDSM books I’ve read and… it was unexpected a nice read. 🙂 I guess I should re-read it soon and finally post a review here and on Goodreads. 😀
Damian and Nicholas had a pleasant and – first and formost – understandable balance in their relationship. The age gap is also a very intriguing aspect. :3 I will buy this book in German too, it was published years ago by the Cursed Verlag.

The bubble butt of the cover guy is also a great look at. :3 ❤ Can understand why guys want to get their hands on this.  ❤

Curious by R.G. Alexander
The Finn Factor # 2


Are you Curious?

Jeremy Porter is. Though the bisexual comic book artist has known Owen Finn for most of his life—long enough to know that he is terminally straight—he can’t help but imagine what things would be like if he weren’t.

Owen is far from vanilla—as a dominant in the local fetish community, he sees as much action as Jeremy does. Lately even more.

Since Jeremy isn’t into collars and Owen isn’t into men, it seems like his fantasies will remain just that forever…until one night when Owen gets curious.

Warning: Contains explicit m/m nookie. A lot of it. Very detailed. Two men getting kinky, talking dirty and doing the horizontal mambo. Are you reading this? Do you see them on the cover? Guy parts will touch. You have been warned.

What I think about it?

This was good because of several reason: the family bond itself around the book and because of the hot steamy sex scenes between Owen and Jeremy. 🙂 Should by the other books of the series, too. 🙂

And you?

Look up your shelf: can you remember your books you’ve read during this period? One which kept in mind? 😉 Feel free and tell me if you like. Or tell me if you maybe have read these books or titles (by the author) too. 🙂 Do you have books on your list with a less good rating than the other during this period? 🙂
