Dustin Reviews: Rainbows All Around Us by Nathan J. Morissey


Rainbows All Around Us by Nathan J MorisseyDeeply closeted and lonely, Justin spirals into a depression when he has no one to turn to. When compassionate and sexy Lucas enters the picture, he changes Justin into a confident and happy young gay man. But tragedy strikes when Lucas gets involved in the gay rights movement and attracts homophobic bigots. Can Justin protect his true love? Or will they be torn apart forever?

Set amid the gay marriage movement, Rainbows All Around Us is an uplifting and inspirational gay love story about the difficulties of being both gay and masculine in the modern world, the importance of being yourself, and most importantly, the power of love to change your world.

Please note that this story contains explicit sexual content and language not appropriate for readers under 18. Reader discretion is advised.

Rainbows All Around Us was a sweet sweet read. Justin and Lucas are perfectly paired and through their individual strengths and weaknesses a beautiful tale of love unfolds and builds to an emotional climax. Wiping the tears from my eyes, I discovered the story continued with what I considered a ramble of explanations that was not needed. The additional closing passage and epilogue were a disappointment after the story peaked so beautifully. It’s nice to have all the loose ends tied up in a bow, but sometimes not every detail needs to be explained. Leave a little to the readers imagination.

Do I recommend this book? ABSOLUTELY YES!

Dustin Reviews: The Math Teacher Is Dead by Robert Manners



Danny Vandervere has the world on a string: beautiful, athletic, intelligent, rich, popular; but the string starts to unravel when Danny trips over the corpse of his math teacher during his morning run. With a sprained ankle and the unlikely assistance of Ash, an unpopular goth kid from school, Danny begins to investigate the life and death of a man he only knew as Mr. Janacek. But when his ankle heals, he returns to his normal routine, only to have it interrupted again by the discovery of another corpse. As his senior year progresses, the deaths and accidents of people he knows mount up, and it seems there is a serial killer on a spree in this tiny mountain town…and all of the victims have Danny Vandervere in common. He and Ash must discover the killer before he (or she) closes in on Danny himself.

The Math Teacher Is Dead was an interesting mystery/crime read, however, I thought Danny was a tad bit too overly emotional for the richest kid in town. With that said, the story was engaging and an enjoyable short story. I would have liked to have seen this manuscript expanded into a novella.

Dustin Reviews: Into Deep Waters by Kaje Harper


Two Navy Marines, Daniel and Jacob, met on-board a naval ship during WWII , both were very young – still in their teens – but they were old enough to serve their country. And against all odds, and the many risks involved, they fell in love and 

managed to stay together for the last 60 years. Now, as their time together inevitably gets shorter and shorter, Daniel can’t wait any longer for the right to finally marry the only man he has loved all these years.

Into Deep Waters is an amazingly beautiful and emotionally driven story that reads like a fast paced novel. Kaje Harper has packed a lifetime of history between Danial & Jacob into a very believable and emotional story. I can’t count the many times I wiped mist from my eyes. A fabulous mood-lifting read.

Into Deep Waters celebrates love, sex and romance between Daniel and Jacob. It is a product of the Love Is Always Write Event sponsored by the Goodreads M/M Romance group and is published as a free read.
