Early Featured Book Review: Strain by Amelia C. Gormley
Even though this story features a lot of sex, it's not ABOUT sex or even about a D/s lifestyle. It's about fighting for survival and the life-affirming connections you make with the people you trust to have your back. It's about brotherhood and love and making the best out of a hard life, and it is haunting... absolutely beautiful. The emotional depth is so tangible, Strain is both heartwarming and endearingly painful, from vivid adrenaline-packed start to aching, bittersweet ending. Definitely a must read for fans of male/male romance!

Ali knows she has a choice: hide, pretend it never happened, and try to go on with her shattered life, or go out and wreak vengeance on the creatures who took her family from her. Alice in Zombieland is original and compelling, [...]
