It is tough to balance SF and romance in such a book, especially gfay one published by Dreamspinner. We appreciate your feedback. Outside of a few words, not even full sentences, that a war happened in the USA, prior to the split into two nations of the Red States vs the Blue States. Red states are ultra conservative – sex is basically forbidden and being gay is criminal.

No government structure is given. The nunette was a bit much as was the too-perfect family but it was still wonderful. For some people not me this may be over the top. If you don’t like futuristic books, you definitely should give this a go, I What a fantastic book, I can’t believe I’m saying that about a futuristic story, as I don’t like them!! I am excited to read the next one though! The only part of the world we see is the red state of Idaho and just the slightest glimpse of blue Oregon.

Tenino’s prose I thought was wonderful. He is reunited with James when he is assigned the job of rescuing James from the Red States who had been recently re-educated. They had a slow-burn chemistry and when it finally got hot, it got HOT!


You can’t described in a few words how good it was, terrific plot,some parts were funny, yummy sex scenes, cute couple, HEA. A couple of things. James who is now out of the closet, struggles gra some guilt and finds himself trying to prove his worth and make amends.

No, cancel Yes, report it Thanks! This story is more of an enemies to lovers, even though they were friends first. James reached out and pulled Matt to him, and they stood there in a little circle. There were some really funny lines in this section of the book, and some hilarious scenes, most of which appeared to include ‘Miz’the horse that James could communicate with ‘Dr Doolittle’ style and which had helped them to escape, and then there was a strange character, Beni, who was a nymphomaniac nun!!

I am so confused. The first is the futuristic tale of a country divided along political lines. Then James confesses he tormented Matt in high school because James wanted him.

Because I need variety to avoid book slumps. But thanks to James and Matt, the journey turned very enjoyable! Continue shopping Checkout Continue shopping. Oh, yeah, you don’t know why, because there was no Worldbuilding. He has accepted her need for “research”, and looks forward to the benefits said research affords him.

Matt was sent on a mission to extract James from Idaho a red state where he was re-educated for being gay. Blue is prosperous, better equipped and pro-gay among other things.

James went to high school with Matt and things didn’t end well for them back then. They were able to really move forward in their relationship. Interesting story This book certainly speaks of “possible” and scary times ahead.

I will read the ggay Turning Tricksthough wish it were available as a physical book. But my god, whenever I heard those two words, I could only think of an episode of South Park where Cartman said “Th’ fuck” like 30 times. There are still some hard feelings on Matt’s part and some ambiguous ones on Etnino part.


Review: 18% Gray by Anne Tenino – Under the Covers Book Blog

Teniho I am not a fan of psychics in my fiction but I liked James in this instance. There’s a bit of teasing about a new possible couple, with a forced separation, a story I would LOVE to read in the future. And, OMG, I can’t forget about the horny nun!

There is very little world building, just some quick reference to an event called tejino Split Between The States. Matt takes the contract anyway and it just gets all screwed up from there. Her two daughters are mildly confused by Anne’s need to twist Ken dolls into odd positions.

The boredom had to stop. Like I said before, the best part about this book is the humor. Sister Beni – I thought she was a fun twist at first, but then as the story progressed she just annoyed the hell out of me. The near future dystopia the US has become is quite possible and the political ramifications make for a lot of possible intrigue and problems for the author to solve to make the liberal-conservative divide and its effects on resources and such realistic.

But this is not about the politics of this future era but about a para-military outfit QESA that takes genino from the Blue government to extract etnino from the Red.
