Dustin Reviews: Bitch Hollywood by Robert Bryndza & Ján Bryndza



Bitch Hollywood
When handsome twenty-five year old Fillip wins the American Green Card Lottery, his dreams of being a Hollywood Costume Designer come a leap closer.

But Hollywood is a huge shock, moving from his cosy, comfortable life in London to the cut-throat world of Tinseltown.

Then a stroke of luck first meeting leads to a job with fading actress Veronica Madison – a movie star on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Soon Fillip is pulled into the dark and hilarious world she inhabits, surrounded by the famous (and infamous) residents of the Hollywood Hills.

Fillip faces a choice, to make his dream a reality should he become a manipulative fame-hungry wannabe? Or should he choose happiness and return to the love of his life he left back home in London?

Bitch Hollywood is a hilarious celebrity comedy about the trials of life and love in the city where dreams are supposed to come true.

Bitch Hollywood was a delightful humorous romp into Fillip’s topsy-turvy reality where if it could go bad, it usually did. Plagued with bad luck, poor timing and a small cast of dysfunctional one-dimensional Hollywood characters, Fillip treads water (so to speak) in an attempt to make his career dream come true in Hollywood. Bitch Hollywood is the cure to cheer any reader on a gray and gloomy day.

Dustin Reviews: If It Ain’t Love by Tamara Allen


If It Aint Love by Tamara Allen

In the darkest days of the Great Depression, New York Times reporter Whit Stoddard has lost the heart to do his job and lives a lonely hand-to-mouth existence with little hope of recovery, until he meets Peter, a man in even greater need of new hope.

A Goodreads M/M Romance Member’s Choice Awards Nominee

If It Ain’t Love isn’t a typical M/M Romance (cookie-cutter style) novel with in-your-face sex and shallow characters. Instead, Tamara Allen brings “real” characters to life in a well written feel-good story filled with human compassion. Although the story takes place during the Great Depression, it is written in a manner that the reader could easily mistake it for a contemporary tale. Timeless.

Dustin Reviews: Halloween Threesome (Pauer Bautam University #2) by Brandon Reed


Halloween Threesome by Brandon ReedGorgeous young freshman Sean Brimlee loves the sex with his semi-boyfriend Ryan, but he’s ready to spice things up… with a threesome. Sean and Ryan attend the Halloween Carnival in West Hollywood in search for a third party. Who will be the lucky guy?

WARNING: Explicit Gay Sex

Brandon Reed’s Pauer Bautam series are a hoot to read. Just as the series name suggests, the story line is all about S-E-X and getting laid. The writing style is light and the stories aren’t deep (just like the stereotypical characters), but the series is just a down-right fun read.

Dustin Reviews: A Revolutionary Romance by Melody Clark


A Revolutionary Romance by Melody ClarkUS founding father descendants, T.J. Delaney and John Adams Paulson, have been friends and occasional lovers since Harvard. Jack’s uncomfortable with this, but he’s even less okay with T.J.’s belief their love is fated. T.J. is virtually certain they’re the literal reincarnations of their legendary ancestors. Jack is virtually certain T.J. is nuts, but he will soon change his mind.

Excerpt:
“You and your goddamned empty principles,” T.J. barked back. “What’s more important to you, a principle or a reality? The reality of gay people finally being allowed to have the most basic civil rights? Forget the fucking list! This is a much faster road. And the breakfast program will come to naught, we know that. Of that, I am sorry, but I think equal rights beats out even the best-intentioned hunger program.”

“I don’t see that one is any more important than the other. T.J., goddamn it, this is how the bastards do it. This is how they divide and conquer. You get sane people from both parties working together and they toss out the red meat to one side or the other. Abortion for women, gun control for men, that‘s the way they work the middle. These guys are not going to give in without one hell of a lot more concessions from our side. There’s more to this. What is it?”

“I think they just want to make it impossible for you to progress with your agenda,” T.J. said softly, staring down into the empty place made with his coupled fingers. “They’re terrified of your pedigree. They’re afraid this new effort of yours will unleash a new tide of social spending.”

“Keep going, there’s more. What is it? Why go to you? Why not just threaten me directly?”

T.J. shook his head with a hollow and melancholy sigh. “The only way they can think to counter your ancestry is with … my own.”

“Wonderful. And for my last round of Final Jeopardy, Alex, the answer is ‘What is History repeating itself?”

This reviewer found A Revolutionary Romance to be a  fast paced and entertaining read, more along the lines of Gay Lit, rather than M/M Romance. The differences in the main character’s personalities play well against each other, making for an enjoyable read. I would liked to have seen the story expanded some more, but that’s a mark of a good story, when the reader is left with wanting more.

Video Book Teaser for PULPIT TO PORN (current WIP)


A fictional tale of Marc Strawder, a hetro, young and single preacher who wants more than anything to help his special-needs nephew. To do so, Marc must decide between Family or Religion. Ultimately he must decide if he is willing to do anything for his beloved nephew even at the price of surrendering his Morals and Religious Beliefs?

The story came (one night)  in the form of an emotionally draining dream. I awoke crying. Immediately, I jotted down a few brief notes that I remembered from the dream. The next morning, the images of the previous nights dream were just as clear and vivid as they were in my dream. That is when I knew I had to write Marc’s story.
