Throwback Thursday #7

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 42 2016 (october 17th – october 23th) — Calender Week 42 2015 (october 12th – october 18th)

My detailed reads between october 12th and october 18th were:

Him (Him # 1) by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy


They don’t play for the same team. Or do they?

Jamie Canning has never been able to figure out how he lost his closest friend. Four years ago, his tattooed, wise-cracking, rule-breaking roommate cut him off without an explanation. So what if things got a little weird on the last night of hockey camp the summer they were eighteen? It was just a little drunken foolishness. Nobody died.

Ryan Wesley’s biggest regret is coaxing his very straight friend into a bet that pushed the boundaries of their relationship. Now, with their college teams set to face off at the national championship, he’ll finally get a chance to apologize. But all it takes is one look at his longtime crush, and the ache is stronger than ever.

Jamie has waited a long time for answers, but walks away with only more questions—

can one night of sex ruin a friendship? If not, how about six more weeks of it? When Wesley turns up to coach alongside Jamie for one more hot summer at camp, Jamie has a few things to discover about his old friend…and a big one to learn about himself.

Warning: contains sexual situations, hotties on hockey skates, skinnydipping, shenanigans in an SUV and proof that coming out to your family on social media is a dicey proposition.

What I think about it?

What a coincidence. 😀 I’m currently reading Him – Mit ihm allein, the German version of the book which I received last week. 😀 The book is – in English as well German – perfect. :3 I really love the intimate relationship between the two guys.

The Darkes Flame (Roadmap to you Heart # 1) by Christina Lee


From the author of There You Stand, a new male/male romance about an errant motorcycle recruit and the captivating bartender who sends his wheels spinning down an all too tempting road.

Vaughn O’Keefe has been part owner of the Hog’s Den for years. Privy to plenty of Disciples of the Road business, he’s never been more ruffled as when a new recruit named “Smoke” walks through the door. Something about the man gets his blood pumping, but he knows to keep his preferences under wraps around the club.

“Smoke” Callahan has done a couple of rehab stints and is finally clean, thanks to help from the Disciples. He’s on the right path and isn’t about to get sidetracked, no matter how much the guy who manages the bar gets beneath his skin. Besides, his last relationship with a man left him scared, alone, and with a nightmare of an addiction.

When the Hog’s Den becomes shorthanded, and Smoke is ordered to help out the one man he can’t have, his longing for the bartender reaches blistering proportions. Vaughn figures a night together should be enough to satisfy their mutual attraction. But neither banks on just how scorching hot it might be.

As Smoke’s past unravels and the one person he hopes never to lay eyes on again messes with all he holds sacred, it’s time to involve the Disciples. Problem is, he’ll have to risk his membership, his heart, and his own hide to keep everyone he cares about safe.

**PLEASE NOTE: These two characters are a spin-off from the m/m book, THERE YOU STAND.

What I think about it?

If I remember correctly this was the first book by Christina Lee I read. :3 It was very thrilling. I liked the character and the whole scenery was well described. It was one of my very first first narration books and I can say that they are far more pleasant to read in English than in German. XD

I remember myself fondly of Vaughn and Smoke. 🙂 Should do a re-read because I have the third book still on my TBR list. xD There you stand which is a bit connected to this is also on my list. 🙂

And you?

Did you know what you’ve read during this period? Do you have lists? Do those lists inspire you to re-read a book? 🙂 Tell me if you like. 🙂
