Blaze's Black Widow's:Angel, by Dana Littlejohn

Angel spent the last two years Indianapolis enjoying a new life with a good job and a great guy. One text message from Blaze could end everything she had built up. Should she turn down a chance to get back at the man who has caused her nightmares for the last five years?

SLAVE's Review
To Dana Littlejohn's Black Widow series, book I entitled ANGEL, I have to say that this was a great little short story. Short, but sweet, getting right to the point. Though, not the type of story I would associate with Ms. Littlejohn having read several of her books before, it certainly shows that her writing isn't limited to one particular style or genre.
I fully enjoyed both her realistic characters and the smooth flow of the story. Since this is book I there was mention of other Black Widows. I look forward to meeting them, but for Angel, I gladly give it 5 ½ pens

Dojo Boys: The Italian Connection, by Alex A. Akira

This swiftly-paced two-volume romantic Yaoi love story tells the tale of the multi-talented thief/dancer Philippe Michael Ponty. First introduced in Dojo Boys: Dragon & Crow Volume II, the now twenty-two year old platinum haired, petite Adonis struggles to make a home for himself in America.

Volume I finds Philip settling in Connecticut in disguise, as he doesn't want to draw too much attention to his true line of work. Despite his caution, he meets and befriends a local rock musician, Tommy Sear, who despairs of ever having his band make it.

Quickly smitten by the dark-haired, shy Asian male that is Philip, Tommy seeks to make the young man his, but Philip doesn't believe in love; besides, he has a very real problem. He can't seem to get the victim of his last burglary, a green-eyed, virile Italian male... out of his mind.

With Philip's encouragement, Tommy renews his efforts to get his band, Sear, a record deal. He makes a demo and shortly after a scout contacts him, from Italy no less. The Italian scout is coming to America hear them play in the hopes of signing Sear to the much sought-after label, Romano Studios.
But Tommy has a secret and he's afraid that without Philip's help, they may not get the deal.

SLAVE's Review:

The story moved along like a local train during rush hour: hot and slow...but a great place to relax if you let yourself. Alex A. Akira does a great job with his characters. They were well developed and I enjoyed meeting them. I must admit that my first impression was "damn, another long drawn out story", but by the end I actually liked the book…all except for the author's awful attempts at expressing the moans of passion. They irritated me so much that they pulled me from the story. I would have given this book a 4 except for that.
