A Little Bit Country by S.J. Frost

Author: S.J. Frost

Genre: {M/M} Contemporary
Rating: Golden Blush Award

Lead singer Ash Ivers is not all rock and roll; Ash is A Little Bit Country when it comes to a certain singing cowboy. After years of trading verbal insults through the media, meeting country music singer Jackson Abrams face to face at a benefit concert motivates Ash to save the horse and ride the cowboy. 

A Little Bit Country is a well written romantic comedy. The plot features the emotional mayhem of a public life versus the lack of privacy. All of the characters are extremely engaging, even the scoundrels inspire a respectable quantity of indignation from the readers. Ash maintains a bad boy rock star image for the public; however he is actually a very thoughtful easygoing man. Ash constantly changes his hair style as a way to broaden his connection with fans. His public exhibits of outrage are really vents regarding the disrespect displayed by others.

Jackson has a straightforward charismatic personality. His career is not just for fame; Jackson truly cares about helping people. Jackson chose to hide his sexuality from the public because of the image for that music genre. Although Jackson chose to sing country music, as well as live in Texas, he did not choose his sexuality. Jackson understood there are some people who refuse to accept the fact that being born gay is not a lifestyle.

S.J. Frost has created a magnificent saga that I thoroughly enjoyed. The storyline illustrates sensitive issues that most readers can relate to. Such as does privacy exist? What’s more, why is the public entitled to know everything about law abiding people? Other subjects highlighted are fake friends, jealousy along with fake Christians.  The characters have realistic personality traits so expressive that I laughed, got misty eyed as well as infuriated on the behalf of Jackson. I highly recommend A Little Bit Country.

Kent Samson’s competitive nature would not allow him to decline a challenge proposed by his best friend and co-worker. So when the next person to walk into his office is a male instead of a female, Kent is determined to win Terry Barron as well as the bet.

A Betting Man is a well-paced romantic comedy. All of the characters are humorous, intelligent and genuinely engaging. The storyline is written in both Kent’s and Terry’s point of view. Kent is a high performance driven man, who is a little ashamed of his humble background. His material lifestyle is a testament to his success. Even the prominent women Kent dated was self promoting with sexual benefits for him. Although, Kent had never dated a man before, he is not gender premeditated. Dating Terry is the first time Kent formed an emotional connection with any of his dates, as well as desiring to have an actual long-term relationship.

Terry is a naturally easy going gay man who desires to be loved for the intuitive individual that he is, rather than the image his family has chosen for him. Because of his secret, Terry is cautious on the subject of his background. Also, Terry constantly makes a conscious effort to control his pronunciation, something he has in common with Kent.

One of the key highlights of A Betting Man is Kent’s expressive forward thinking parents. Their intelligent Christian views blended with Southern charm is refreshingly heartwarming. Kent was concerned his parents would condemn a same sex relationship. However, just the opposite was true; both parents welcomed Terry with open arms, immediately acknowledging Terry as an unofficial son-in-law.

Sandrine Gasq-Dion has created an excellent saga that is extremely enjoyable.  A Betting Man illustrates the typical chaos of building a loving liaison regardless of the sexual characteristics of the couple.

Traveling the back roads to California, Nash Rhodes is not looking for trouble when he rides into Fallen Creek, Wyoming. Nash just needs a quiet place to recover for a few days. Nevertheless, trouble finds Nash the moment he steps in to protect the lady who owns the Watering Hole Bar.  Nash also gets the attention of werewolf Cullen O’Murphy. Soon after meeting Nash, Cullen develops into protector, as well as lover.  

Threadbare Gypsy Souls is an intriguing mystery. The plot is a multifaceted trail of secrets slowly unveiling a number of surprises designed to seize the reader’s attention throughout the story. The characters are engaging, as well as amusing at times.  One of the secrets Nash and Cullen both share is that they are in the closet gay. Nash is on the run from the leader of a motorcycle gang who took exception to having a gay man as a member in the gang. Cullen has had altercations with homophobic wolf shifters. Cullen is not part of a pack; he prefers to mind his own business as a small rancher. There is more to Nash than meets the eye; one trait that is apparent is that Nash is a gentleman with southern manners.

T. A. Chase has created a marvelous saga. I shall not incorporate any spoilers. However, Threadbare Gypsy Souls has ample battles, sensual intimacy, plus wonderful character interaction in addition to being exceptionally enjoyable.

Vampires Gem and Don are investigators for the paranormal government agency InterspeciesDisciplinary Investigation Optimizing Taskforce, or I.D.I.O.T for short. Their assignment is to uncover who or what is butchering human males in New Orleans. When evil rears its ugly head and Don goes missing, Gem discovers the gifted human Angel is the only one who can save them from a continual Hell.
Angel Baby is the first book in the French Quarter Quartet Series.The plot is an action-packed romantic mystery featuring species discrimination. The characters are amusing, as well as engaging. Best friends since childhood, Don is the brawn and Gem is the brains in the team. Don has a quick temper plus he is less socially approachable than Gem. Don is also much larger than Gem, so Don is better suited to successfully hunting down perpetrators. Undercover as a bartender, Gem is immediately attracted to the small feisty man known as Angel. In fact, Gem was so captivated by the man, he almost revealed his fangs when others showed interest in Angel. Being an extrasensory human, Angel immediately knew evil was attempting to capture Gem. Angel has the ability to commune with the spiritual realm. Angel was able to rescue the vampires, as well as bond with Gem. The information garnered by Don revealed this case is far from over; someone in the agency has gone rogue.

Cherie Noel has created a superb forceful saga that I thoroughly enjoyed. I look forward to the next installment.
