Lenore
Poorly researched, misogynistic, insipid, with underdeveloped characters of the cardboard variety, and an excuse of a plot. This is the kind of story that gives m/m romance a bad name. I would give it negative stars, if I could.

Bad coffee. Bad wine. Bad books.

I find it difficult to choke down all of the above, but after this novella I would happily drink sludge and sour wine. I nearly quit numerous times and that's just not like me. It takes a LOT for me to want to give up. It wasn't just a few things that bothered me; I can honestly say it was the entire package.

I've been on an amnesia trope kick lately and this was not what I was looking for. Not even close. The blurb gave it great promise but it failed to reach any

I loved this book from beginning to end. It has a great location (sun and beach, bars and parties until late in the night), some wonderful characters and deals with the heart-wrenching issue of amnesia. Who wouldn't be afraid of losing all understanding of who they are, and what their life was like? This story shows not only what such a situation does to the amnesiac, but what the consequences might be for someone who falls in love with such a man.

Demetrio has found his niche on Eivissa (Ibiza)

A.J. brings us a little mystery, some intrigue, hawt guys and great sex. A touch of it all, but not overly too much.

Thumbs up.

Another wonderful book from AJ! Very sweet story with a dash of mystery thrown in. I gave it 4 stars only because I wish it were longer, more elaborate, especially towards the end.

This story was just okay. Great idea, but as a novella it falls short.

Demetrio Reyes worked himself into an unhealthy state both physically and mentally. After a serious health scare, Demetrio moved to the island of Ibiza (pronounced Eivissa by the locals), of the coast in Spain. He opened a gay bar and tried to leave less stressful lifestyle.

When a small boat capsizes and a stranger washes ashore, Demetrio inherits an amnesiac houseguest. While the man doesn’t seem to remember anything, he appe

Llewellyn’s Balearic island is beautiful, liberated and very seductive. The men aren’t too bad either. Actually, I loved Demetrio. Oh. And Chenche. And Stefan. Maybe especially Stefan.

The men and their island lives are wonderfully drawn. Night-clubs, beautiful natural scenery and wonderful food are a fantastic combination.

The only character I didn’t quite warm to was Oceano. I felt initial empathy for him, but I wanted to lend my voice to the others warning Demetrio. Llewellyn uncovers

A.J. Llewellyn lives in California, but dreams of living in Hawaii. Frequent trips to all the islands, bags of Kona coffee in the fridge and a healthy collection of Hawaiian records keep this writer refueled.

A.J’s passion for the islands led to writing a play about the last ruling monarch of Hawaii, Queen Lili’uokalani as well as a non-erotic novel about the overthrow of her kingdom written in dia
