The story sounded pretty cool. Dev has an "imaginary friend" in his mirror who ends up being real. Not only real, but a demon. He becomes obsessed with Dev and becomes jealous of his new boyfriend, to the point of attacking. Sounds good to me! I'm in.

Nope. Nope, nope, nope.

1.) I can't stand blurbs that tell the entire story. With spoilers! What's the points of reading the book? I already know what happens.

2.) It felt like two separate books. One paranormal story and then a contemp romance. The d

I really enjoyed "Mirror of Obsession" from Harper Jewel.  The blurb really grabbed me.  I love all things unique, and I'm always looking for a book that is just a little different from everything that's out there.  First of all, it's MM, and that's my current...well...obsession.  Next, there's an element of the paranormal.  Are demons paranormal?  There's also a sweet love story, a bit of angst, and some VERY hot sex.  This book is full o

Wow!! I couldn't put this one down. Devin had been rejected by his own family for being gay and over the course of several years he never had a lasting relationship. This last one he caught him in bed with another man and he threw them both out. Since Devin was 15 years old he always thought of an imaginary lover, but over time this one appeared in his bedroom mirror. After he kicked his ex out the imaginary lover comes out of the mirror...overpowering him, having sex with him. Devin didn't thin ...more

I read the blurb for this book, and knew I had to read it - and I am so glad I did.

You meet Devin, who has just caught his boyfriend in their bed with someone else..... and you do really feel for Devin.

Once he had realised he was gay, he thought up an imaginary friend whom he called Brice. The night he threw his boyfriend out, he was angry and upset and this gave Brice the chance to come through the mirror, although Devin wouldn't accept he was real.

Over time, Devin meets Matthew at work, and th

If you’re in the mood for a little contemporary romance mm style with a side of paranormal, one click Mirror of Obsession by Harper Jewel. You won’t be disappointed. Mirror of Obsession is a well written short story although I would have loved to get more of all three main characters.

I really enjoyed the flow of this story the timing was perfect. Well the timing of the story was perfect but Devin’s timing well this is what starts the story out with a bang. As you know when one door slams shuts a

I LOVED THIS!!! Harper Jewel, I absolutely loved this story. Matt and Devin are hot, sexy and explosive together. Devin and the insta-wet moments with Brice were toe curling but now I'm afraid of my mirrors. I thought the concept of this story was brilliant and intriguing. I thought the characters were magnificently written and refreshingly different. You don't get this combination of characters very often. Yes, they fell into love hard and f

I received this arc in exchange for an honest review. It is my understanding that this is the author's first foray into M/M erotica. It's a very interesting story. It's a bit short, almost wish it was longer actually. I like Devin. He's a guy many gay men can relate to, disowned by his family for being who he is. Matt is the opposite, with a very accepting family. Both can admit their relationships before weren't exactly the best love affairs, and the sparks between them are immediately noticeab ...more

If you enjoy stories about hot, sexy men and HOT, STEAMY sex scenes then you need to read this! Loved the way Matt and Devin meet and fall in love. After all the things life has put Devin thru I was happy that he found what made him happy. So many emotions and life happenings are put into such a short story, loved it. Thank you Harper Jewel for the pleasure of reading this wonderful story!

I absolutely love a good paranormal read, and this one was just off the charts hot!! Devin "created" an imaginary lover, Brice, as a teenager. They shared some pretty hot nights~ but was it just his imagination or was it real?? After being cheated on by his ex, Brice is back, and once again, it's hot hot hot hot!!!! When Devin meets Matthew, it's an instant attraction, but old wounds keep Devin from fully opening his heart. Brice is less than pleased about Matthew, making it known who he truly i ...more
