    "I enjoyed the book, but was disappointed because I thought there would be more to the story and more of a crime to solve. There were certain aspects of it I appreciated, but several parts just didn't resonate with me at all."

    "Catch a Ghost is a great romantic gay novel and it definitely has the best alpha male character in Tom. The author delves into real violence and then into fantasy (flashbacks and ghosts). This novel has everything from action to love. Great book by a great author."

    "One of the better books in the Gay Werewolf Romance genre. It adds in the saving of a nearly broken man who was brutally attacked. The story could have been depressing, but I found the love story that develops between the attacked man and his rescuer created a heartwarming story line. Several controversial topics are involved but the author weaves them into the story and brings perspectives to these topics. "

    #9Acrobat

    Acrobat

    Forty-five-year-old English professor Nathan Qells is very good at making people feel important. What he’s not very good at is sticking around afterward. He’s a nice guy; he just doesn’t feel things the way other people do. So even after all the time he’s spent taking care of Michael, the kid across the hall, he doesn’t realize that Michael’s mob muscle uncle and guardian, Andreo Fiore, has slowly been falling in love with him. Dreo has bigger problems than getting Nate to see him as a potential partner. He’s raising his nephew, trying to leave his unsavory job, and starting his own business, a process made infinitely more difficult when a series of hits takes out some key underworld players. Still, Dreo is determined to build a life he can be proud of―a life with Nate as a cornerstone. A life that is starting to look like exactly what Nate has been seeking. Unfortunately for Dreo―and for Nate―the last hits were just part of a major reorganization, and Dreo’s obvious love for Nate has made him a target too.

    "It had great cover art but the writing itself was sometimes painful to read. The plot itself wasn't bad but the author could have used the services of a strong editor. The cheesy words the author chose for profanity, the loose plot ends, and the somewhat crazy story telling. But still, it's fantastically better than gay sci fi/fantasy we had ten years ago... which was next to nothing. My Fair Captain (Sci-Regency Series) is decent, but not excellent"
