Reading by the Fire

**Taps mic**

Hello anyone out there?! **taps again** Is this thing on? Oh wait I just need to blow some of the dust off....(blowing on to the pages of blog)

Ah there we go....

Wow I have been a REALLY bad girl. My blog is as deep in dust as Washington DC is in snow....
ba dum bump ;)

Speaking of snow...I thought since most of my friends on the east coast are probably stuck at home, maybe by a roaring fire, hopefully reading it might be fun to post some of my favorite "bad" weather day books.

So here we go and in no particular order...

Charlie Cochet --ALL the THIRDS books!!!
                             North Pole stories

Rhys Ford--Cole McGinnis series
                    Sinners Series
                    Fish Stick Friday
                    Hellsinger Books 1 and 2


L.C. Chase--Unfortunate Blizzard (appropriate right now)

Ethan Stone -- Flesh series

There are countless others but these books are sure to keep you warm on a very wintry day...

Happy Reading
Stay Warm..

love and good mm books to you all

Embry :)

Hop Against Homophobia an Transphobia

First of all welcome to my blog J

I am so honored to be asked to not only participate but to play a role in this wonderful Cause with some amazing women. Thanks Erica Pike, K-Lee Klein, Cherie Noel and N.J. Nielsen for including me this year.

Being a middle-aged straight woman from the South one might wonder why this is so important me. After all it doesn’t have anything to do with me in my everyday life. Right? 

I unfortunately hear this from quite a few of my family, friends and co-workers. Along with the major question of why I write m/m romance. My response has always been why not? The gay community are no different than the heterosexual community.

“But..wait, yes they are, they aren’t normal like we are.” They reply.

Oh how I want to slap the ignorance right out of them. But I calmly shake my head and proceed to tell them how I feel about their opinion.

First of all they are not a sub-species of human. They do not come from another planet. They aren’t led by some terrorist organization. And they most definitely don’t have their own agenda.

But wait! I stand corrected. They do have an agenda just like we all do. They want to grow up without fear, maybe go to college, work in a nice job where they are respected for their hard work, meet the love of their life, settle down and get married. Some want children some don’t.

WOW just like the rest of us, imagine that! They want the same rights as the rest of the world. To be themselves. Nothing nefarious about that in my eyes.

“But the Bible says….” they continue.

Yeah, yeah we’ve all heard that one a million times. 

My go to standard answer…

“Maybe your Bible does, but mine said God loves us all no matter who we love.”

I could go on for days the things I am cornered with, just like the rest of you. I just smile and say “you have no idea the love and friendships I have made through the gay community.” And I walk away and smile because that's how I roll.

Maybe one day they will open their eyes and realize that no matter who you are as a human….You are still a human with the same rights as everyone else. 

Please take care of one another, laugh always, love harder, live longer and thank you for supporting this wonderful day!!!!

Hugs and Kisses,

Embry Carlysle

Black Hurricane

Well I'm sneaking this review in before the promised next one...


Okay let me start from the beginning. I have always been a fan of series books because I fall in love with some if not all of the secondary characters. Then I wait with bated breath for the next installment. I always have one character though that becomes my favorite and I absolutely can't wait for them to get their own book. Then they do and I'm sadly disappointed. It doesn't stand up to my vision for the character. The author acts as if they rush to give this one time minor player a quick HEA.

Not so for Black Hurricane. Jazz has and will always be my favorite of the Boston Boys story Erica Pike has written. As a total fangirl of the author I have bugged her on Facebook, twitter, name it I've been there....just waiting to hear when Jazz will get his story.

I'm not gonna lie there was a small part of me that was terrified of reading his book and being disappointed once again. So I put it off for as long as I could. Damn but that was stupid. This book far exceeds my expectations. She has given the good time party boy who doesn't believe in love a story that made me laugh and cry. I also wanted to seriously punch his lights out from time to time. Erica Pike has shown a vulnerable side to Jazz that I never dreamed he possessed. I am so blown away by this book that it will be on my re-read list forever (as are her other two).

I would highly recommend this to everyone and if I could give more stars I totally would.

Well done Ms. Pike.....

While my muse is away I will Play

Yes I'm afraid to admit, I am suffering from what is fondly known as Writers Block.

My muse has decided to take an unscheduled vacation without telling me.....This isn't the first time he's done this, however, I thought he had learned his lesson (clearly not). So while he is off roaming the corridors of my overly imaginative mind I will take this opportunity to review a few books I've read recently.

Disclaimer: I am NOT a reviewer but a major fan of reading romance novels. These reviews are just mine and mine alone. The authors did NOT ask me to rate their books. I have my own rating system of Booty Shakes.

Okay so with that out of the way.

The first book is MEMORIZING YOU by D.W. Skinner.

OMG did I love this book. Even though it was a work of fiction, it was more of a memoirs type novel. I felt like I was in the main character's head the entire time.What he felt.. I felt. His joy, his sorrow, his fears. His remarkable and realistic way of handling every situation. I laughed and cried and by the end I felt a euphoric sense of calm.

This book really will leave you believing in love....

I rate this 5 out of 5 booty shakes...

Well done Mr. Skinner, I hope to read more from you in the future.

Next up:
