Yogi and the Bear by Nix Knox

Rating: 2/10 ★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ 
Title: Yogi and the Bear
Author: Nix Knox
Genre: M/M Romance
URL: Samhain Publishing
Price: US $5.50
Other Information/warnings: Explicit sexual content
Summary [from the publisher]:
If the fall is inevitable, might as well enjoy the tumble.

Months after a scaffolding accident leaves him in chronic agony, construction worker Ryan Powell has exhausted all that Western medicine has to offer. He’s willing to try anything, even yoga, to get some relief.

He expected to feel out of place at the New Age Center, but he never expected a power-outage bathroom encounter to magically erase his pain. When he discovers the man with the magic hands is his drop-dead-sexy yoga teacher, Ryan decides that there might just be something to this metaphysical thing, after all.

Yogi Niklas Baumgartner has found it remarkably easy to keep his shiny vow of chastity untarnished—until now. Still, a bathroom hand job doesn’t really count as sex, right? But his footing on the no-nooky wagon slips when he realizes the big, blond bear at the back of the class is his man in the dark.

Their unlikely attraction brings out sides of themselves they never knew lurked beneath the surface, sides it takes courage to accept. But when trust is broken, repairing the damage might just tear them apart.

Orlando is a quiet man who prefers academic life to venturing out into the world. Within the confines of their rooms at the university, it’s easy to hide the fact that he and Jonty are far more than friends. But the desire to spend more time alone with the man he loves is an impossible lure to resist.
When a brutal murder occurs at the hotel where they’re staying, the two young men are once more drawn into the investigation. The race to catch the killer gets complicated by the victim’s son, Ainslie, a man who seems to find Orlando too attractive to resist.

Fallen Angels by Marty Rayne – review

Rating: 2/10 ★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ Title: Fallen Angels

Price: US$5.99
Other Information/warnings: Explicit m/m, violence, bad language
Summary [from the publisher]:
Adam Hardy’s assignment was clear: Infiltrate the pseudo-biker gang Fallen Angels and bring back the dirt on their big boss, Lucifer. Nowhere in the mission statement did it tell him to fall for the local leader, Mammon, named after the fallen angel of greed.
Marc, aka Mammon, thought that a quick dip would sate the lust he held for the newest Fallen Angel. After all, Adam would never be his now that Lucifer had taken an interest in the pretty boy. Was intent on making him a golden boy.
Who knew sex and an unexpected bond of trust would bring Adam and Marc together while they tried to take Lucifer down and out of their lives forever?

Never Never Land by Treva Harte – review

Rating: 2/10 ★★☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ Title: Never Never Land
Author: Treva Harte
Genre: Contemporary romance
URL: Loose ID
Price: US$4.99
Other Information/warnings: Explicit het and m/m sex
Summary [from the publisher]:
Sex screws everything up.
That was one good reason Jenni hung out with her gay buddies, Chris, Adam and Jake. They were gorgeous and totally unavailable. Friends were safe. At least, until they decided she needed a walk on the wild side and decreed they’d find the perfect man for her. Then all the rules changed.
Jake found the perfect straight guy for Jenni — except Jake was falling for him himself. Jenni was getting interesting e-mail from a mystery man. Chris was finally ready to take on commitment-shy Adam.
Maybe screwing up would be worth it.
