BLURB:

Five dead leaders, their bodies arranged in a pentagram. Treason, lies, and backstabbing. A make-believe affair that turns into a real mating.
Timothy Sands is a PBI counselor, half-fey, half-elf, with a secret crush on Herman Weiss, PBI director. As a new chapter is added to the Leader Murders, it is Weiss’s responsibility to investigate what seems an impossible-to-solve case. The other problem? Weiss is suffering from rages, and his only salvation lies in Tim’s emotional-grid-balancing skills. They only have to pretend to be a couple for Tim to use his talents, and he owes Weiss a big favor. Piece of cake, right?
The fey might be involved in the Leader Murders. Someone on the Council might be their ally, and another prominent PBI figure looks more and more suspicious as they investigate. The stakes are upped when Timothy’s father, the Fey King, threatens to leave the Council destitute if they don’t hand Timothy over to him. Weiss’s brilliant solution? Mating Timothy and forcing the Council into protecting him.
There’s only one small hitch in that plan: instead of protecting one, the Council might decide to get rid of two


We at OptimuMM, with the approval of Dreamspinner Press, decided that we will review some previously published books. Our first choice was Liv Olteano’s Leader Murders series.

This is the second installment of the series, and I must say I’m hooked! This is way better than the first book, probably because I started to get into this universe of Liv’s. The alphas are assholes, they are domineering, and they give no choice to anyone. The Council shares the same policy about mating. That is until Amanda, the director of PBI, Weiss’ mate started her mission that we learn about in the previous sequel of the series.

Now, Amanda is facing the death penalty. But she has supporters, including Rick the previous book’s MC. Rick pushes the agenda to the council, and they are inclined to accept that mating in an abusive relationship must be determined if the abused one requests it.
Well, that’s not going well with what Weiss believes. Weiss is on a raging rampage, so he seeks out Tim, the PBI counselor for help. Weiss convinces Tim to not report his behavior to the council because then they will put him down without a blink of an eye thanks to Amanda’s action.

Tim has a 5-year-old crush on Weiss. Also, he owns Weiss when the werewolf saved his life 5 years ago. The deal that Weiss offers is to pretend to be a couple and in this way Tim, being half-fey and half-elf, could control Weiss’ emotions. Tim fears that accepting the deal that he will be hurt in more than one way. If Weiss losses his temper, he could easily kill Tim, but for Tim, that’s the least of the damage Weiss can do to him.

Tim knows Weiss’ MO. He gets, he uses, he drops. Tim is afraid that once he gets a taste of Weiss, and when the deal is over, he’ll suffer more than he ever did.

This book is more angsty. There are traitors, old family issues, and the risk of heart break. We learn more about the politics in the council, the ruthlessness of the leaders and a shoe chewing alpha wannabe.

Well get going love, read the book already!

BLURB:

Three days. Three dead bodies. One newly turned, broken-hearted lycan tracker to figure out the connection.
The one summer Rick Barton takes a vacation, all hell breaks loose. Running from an abusive relationship leads him into the arms of hard-nosed lycan Travis Chandler, who gives him little choice but to become a lycan too and join the Paranormal Bureau of Investigation. Out of options, Rick joins the weird organization, expecting some two weeks of training and an adjustment period. Tough luck, he doesn’t get either. On his first day, his new partner offers to promote him to field agent if they get mated – less time wasted on training, more time on the field, and considering Rick is the only tracker the Bureau has on hand when a wave of strange murders hits the community, time is of the essence.
Someone’s killing the leaders of the paranormal world and mutilating the bodies. Investigating and tracking clues is enough of a challenge, and Rick must contend with an impatient Council, Travis’s advances, and actually adjusting to being a lycan. Only one thing is certain: Rick’s new life promises plenty of interesting adventures—as long as he can survive.


We at OptimuMM, with the approval of Dreamspinner Press, decided that we will review some previously published books. Our first choice was Liv Olteano’s Leader Murders series. I came up with this title with some recommendations, and after reading the blurb, I said I have to read this!

Well, I had a different kind of expectations from this book, though I’m not disappointed!

Lycans! I’ve never read lycan shifter books before, and honestly, I would have loved to read more about this species. We get some glimpses but not as detailed as I would like too.

The story starts with Rick spotting a real nice guy on the beach. After the first eye contact, things develop really fast. Like really, really fast, so I had a hard time catching up to the story. I had a feeling I was missing something. Liv’s writing style is a get- use-to type, but once you get into that reader-space, you’re good to go. When the summer god offers his hand, Rick takes it and follows him into the sea. Well, that’s ok, but then he received a hand job followed by a bite. And bang! In 24 hours he’s a lycan, to be more precise, a tracker.

And there’s where my problem with this story is. The non-con part. Rick wasn’t asked to become a shifter. Rick wasn’t told what comes with that bite, and he was left totally alone, that in my opinion is a bs move.

Travis aka summer god aka Rick’s alpha is a total douchebag! But turns out, that in Liv’s universe, all alphas are douchbags. Not only does he bring an untrained civilian into a paranormal secret law enforcement agency, but he also doesn’t give Rick an opportunity to adjust and get trained. When Rick wakes up in the hospital, he’s bitten again, making him Travis’ mate.

As the blurb says, there’s a mass murderer going around, but you’ll learn that’s not necessarily a bad thing, well for me at least. The motive behind those murders, in my opinion, was legit and I wonder why they didn’t happen much, much sooner.
If I were Rick, I would cut off Travis’ most tender parts. But then…and actually you see it coming, but because you’re angry with these alphas, you don’t wanna really see it.

The book is from Rick’s POV, who in his last relationship, was abused regularly. There are some scenes when Travis forces Rick with his alpha voice, in some situations that goes against all of Rick’s instincts. But fear nothing, all goes well.

I said this already to too many authors, and I’ll say it to our sweet Liv too.

Dear Liv,

We know that characters take life in your mind, and you cherish them, developing a very intimate relationship with them (as we do too reading your stories), knowing every feeling, every emotion, and every thought of theirs.

But we have a little problem here you see. All this is happening in your mind! We’re not in it!

So a little bit of advice, as a humble reader (well…) when the characters are changing their behavior, legitely, please write a build up to it. Don’t make sudden changes, be kind to us, prepare us (use much, much more lube please) and do the changes gradually.

Thank You
With love, Levi (on behalf of the readers).

Guys it’s a must read!!! (finishing the review with one hand, and the other is already opening book two).

Review: “Shadowlands” by Charlie David

TITLE: Shadowlands

BLURB:

Charlie David’s celebrated collection of short stories explores the heartfelt, and sometimes heartbreaking passion and pain of gay sexuality. Ancient myths are re-imagined with an exciting queer twist masterfully depicting the charged, fragile relationships of urban life today.


“Shadowlands is a collection of heartfelt and sometimes heartbreaking short stories from well-known actor and entrepreneur Charlie David that explore the passion and pain of gay sexuality. Ancient myths are re-imagined with an exciting queer twist, masterfully depicting the charged, fragile relationships of urban life today.
Story genres in this collection include romance, science fiction, fantasy/paranormal, horror, mystery/suspense, and poetry.”

This was a fast read! The stories are short (a few pages) but are more than telling. You get sucked in from the very first word of the story, and all of a sudden you’re in the mind space of our MC.

The author touches many subjects, philosophical questions, ancient emotions we all face in one way or another. This book is categorized in MM genre, but I think I’m safe if I say that this book is not only for those who read his genre.

The subjects of the book touches its fundamental part of our lives, as: loneliness, greed, sorrow, joy, pain, terror and love.
The stories more often end in the dark than HEA. The author is not afraid to write about things that generally you can’t find in other books. Some of the stories are disturbing, but true. There are things out there (and no, I’m not talking about paranormal now) that we don’t like to know about it. It may be an auto-defense mechanism, but we all do it.

These short stories reminded me of dark poems represented as prose.

I really enjoyed reading it!

Hi all!  I’m Charlie David and I’m happy to stop by here at the OptimuMM .  I’m excited to share that my book Shadowlands was released as the Shadowlands TV miniseries on Sunday, May 27th!  Whether you like to read a book and then watch a show or the other way round, I’d like to invite you into my world and explore Shadowlands.

We’re at an exciting time when it’s still rare for a book in the M/M genre to be made into a film or TV series.  While Shadowlands isn’t traditional romance it does explore love in three thematically connected stories – a couple renegotiating a relationship, a narcissist grasping to comprehend love, and star-crossed lovers mourning its loss.

I had the pleasure to work with a really talented cast and crew and so today I’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to Oscar Moreno, one of the stars of the ‘Narcissus’ episode of the Shadowlands TV miniseries.

The Shadowlands gay TV series is comprised of three distinct stories exploring love.  The second episode in the Shadowlands series is titled Mating Season.  In the early 1950s, a couple explore the idea of opening their relationship while on a remote camping trip when they encounter a mysterious stranger.

 

Colombian born actor Oscar Moreno stars as Matteo opposite Nicolas James Wilson in the Shadowlands series.

 

There are story connections between the three episodes of Shadowlands.  You can read about them here.

 

Tell us about your story in the Shadowlands series.  What were the main challenges and fears you had in your role?

 

Oscar Moreno: In our episode , Will and Matteo negotiate the terms of their relationship while on a camping trip. This was my first leading role in a TV production. So initially I was concerned with the filming process.

 

As for the role, I was very excited to be exploring a gay character that was dealing with complex issues. For a long time mainstream gay media has focused on coming out stories. I’m glad to be a part of a story that brings to light issues that arise in relationships through a gay perspective.

 

How much of yourself goes into a character?

 

Oscar Moreno: I think that in order to create a meaningful performance, part of yourself has to go into every character that you play. For me, it was about about exploring my own emotions and thoughts with regards to open relationships. I believe that powerful performances comes when an actor is able to find the emotional truth of each moment.

 

How much were you able to relate your own experiences to create your character in the Shadowlands series?  And how much did you have to research or imagine?

 

Oscar Moreno:  Philosophically I relate more with Nicolas James Wilson’s character of Will. Since I believe that open relationships are usually more progressive. This however was a conclusion that took me some time to come to.

 

So in order to give life to Matteo, I had to think back to how I felt before the idea ever entered my field of view. Ultimately the experiences and emotions Matteo goes through are betrayal, self-doubt, reconciliation and love. These emotions can be very visceral to most so allowing myself to connect to these emotions and apply them to Matteo’s circumstances was a wonderful challenge to tackle. 

 

I also enjoyed learning about artists like Tom of Finland. I was familiar with some of his work but really enjoyed learning about his life and what drove him to draw such magnificent men in a time where homosexuality was condemned.

 

Nicolas James Wilson and Oscar Moreno in the Mating Season episode of the Shadowlands TV series

 

What aspects of the Shadowlands series are you excited for an audience to experience or discover?

 

Oscar Moreno:  The Shadowlands series offers a unique twist to conversations around sexuality and identity. I hope that the audience will get a chance to reflect on their own experiences and learn something new about themselves in the process.

 

The themes brought up can sometimes be challenging but ultimately it’s all about humans in different sorts of relationships. Allowing the audience to get a peak at how others live, we can hope to continue the conversation around sexuality and identity.

 

Each story or episode in the Shadowlands series is unique and has its own world of characters, time and place.  And yet there are connections between them. Were you aware of these connections while filming or was it a surprise to learn later?

 

Oscar Moreno:  During filming i was only aware that we were matching the lying down shot from Pygmalion Revisited but now I’m happy to be learning more though here.

 

Matteo (Oscar Moreno) and Will (Nicolas James Wilson) in Shadowlands ‘Mating Season’Xavier (Marc Devigne) and Rudy (Charlie David) in the Pygmalion Revisited episode of the Shadowlands TV series.

 

Romance between men and between women was common place and written about in Greek and Roman mythology.  Why is it important to continue sharing these types of stories today?

Oscar Moreno: Romance, sexuality and identity aren’t just for the Greeks and Romans. These are universal themes that should continue being explored. But the exploration is only beneficial if we take different perspectives from our own. As humans we tend to fear what we don’t know.

 

So it is up to each and every one of us to share our stories so that others may learn from it and thus fear it no more.

 

What was the hardest scene for you in the Shadowlands series to do and why?

 

Oscar Moreno: The most nervous I got during filming was when we were doing my monologue. Not only was it a lot of text to recall, but the subject matter of meeting Will through means of getting the shit beat out of me was really difficult for me to justify.

 

Who is a major influence for you and on your creativity?  

 

Oscar Moreno: I have been a fan of musical theatre since high school, so I take major influence from that.  I admire other actors that are able to seamlessly create captivating performances on stage and screen.

 

Is there a type of role you dream of playing but haven’t had the opportunity yet?  

 

Oscar Moreno: I would like to continue to explore queer characters dealing with their lives.  I’ve watched enough gay films to say that it’s about time we go beyond the unrequited love story of a suicidal gay teen.

 

Queer people have some of the most fascinating and unique stories. I look forward to being a voice for those stories that are told less often.

 

In addition to acting, tell me about the other areas of entertainment you’re pursuing.

 

Oscar Moreno: Stay tuned for the launch of my Youtube Channels Totesom and Cuddleom. Totesom will focus on fun entertaining videos that will give you feel for how musical the world is through my eyes.

 

Cuddleom is a channel that is be devoted to spreading love and exploring the benefits of touch.   These channels will uplift and empower viewers to take full advantage of their lives while having some laughs along the way.

 

With so much going on in the world today, what’s your motivation to be a performer? Do you act to explain?  To get away?  To move past? To widen our knowledge? To incite a conversation?

 

Oscar Moreno: Originally I started acting to find a safe community where all my quirks would be accepted. Now it has developed into an exploration of what it is to be human.

With the works that I’m part of I always look for the opportunity to give the audience a reflection of themselves while at the same time challenging their conventions. It is only through discomfort that we can truly grow.

 

What’s next for you as a creator/actor/performer?

 

Oscar Moreno: This summer in Toronto, I will be making my Drag Queen debut in this years Fringe Festival in a new musical called The Ding Dong Girls. Come check it out July 4- 15 at the Factory Theatre.

I am also a Professional Cuddling Practitioner in Toronto. If you are a career driven individual who notices they are lacking affection in their lives, take the initiative and reduce feeling of stress and isolation by contacting me for a consultation and cuddle.

BLURB:

When Intergalactic Navy Captain Nathaniel Hawkins goes undercover to investigate the theft of an IN weapons stash, the mission raises painful memories from his past. Using a title he fled nearly two decades earlier, Nate once again becomes the Earl of Deverell, heir to the Duke of Hawthorne, in order to navigate the ins and outs of a Regency world. But planet Regelence—where young lords are supposed to remain pure until marriage—has a few surprises for Nate, not least of which is his attraction to Prince Aiden.
A talented artist, Prince Aiden Townsend isn’t interested in politics and the machinations of society gentlemen, and he adamantly rejects the idea of marriage and a consort. Aiden wants the freedom to pursue his art and determine his own future. But the arrival of the dashing and mysterious Deverell awakens feelings of passion and longing the young prince can’t deny.
As Nate uncovers a conspiracy reaching far beyond the stolen weapons, his future is irrevocably altered by the temptations of a life he never thought he could have. Drawn into the web of intrigue, Aiden is in danger of losing his life… and his heart.
First Edition published by Samhain Publishing Ltd., June 2007


I have to start by telling you that this is one of my favorite series. This was the second time I had the pleasure to read this first installment of the series.

My first time was not so long after I discovered MM. Still fighting to accept myself, these books helped me more in the process. I always loved Regency romances, me being a hopeless (full) romantic by heart. So this combined with the Sci-Fi genre—that’s another genre I like so much—was a win-win-win situation.

In this world, Regelence is a Regency society where the virtue of the young lords is protected. (Back when I was reading MF only, never even imagined the existence of MM, I always wondered why men’s virtue was value as less. Why only young girls, even now, virtue is so precious while young boys are “forced” to engage in those activities when they lose their purity at a fragile age. (Ok, ok, I may be a bit of conservative here … but just bear with me). Loving these two genera combination, I was very easily lost in the first book.

Nate is the captain of Lady Anna, a war battle spaceship, and he’s instructed to go to Regelence to investigate some missing armory. His admiral asked him to use his title as the heir of Earl, a title he resigned from years back when after a duel he was forced to leave his planet and his family behind joining IN. Now he’s a guest of King Steven, his Consort, and their five sons. Nate brings his adopted fifteen-year-old son with him, Trouble. You have to love this brat!

Aiden is an artist. He’s rarely aware of his surroundings when he’s lost in his art. Being a prince and having responsibilities was never a pleasure of his or his brothers. They always try to find a way to get some free time from the countless balls, the endless string of young men courting them, and the ever-present chaperone. Aidan’s virgin, but the idea that one day he will have to have a consort, a consort who will rule his life, let’s just say is not a thing he desires. Until he meets Nate. His body starts to behave in unbelievable manners, manners that are not fitted to a young prince.

I must say I love this series!!!! I already know the outcome because I’d read it before, but I can’t wait for book two! I’m itching to take book two and read it, but I promised myself to not do that until Dreamspinner Press publishes the sequel to this series.

I highly, very highly recommend to all of you!

Review: “Bones Bundle” by Kim Fielding

BLURB:

Skinny, quiet hipster Dylan Warner just wants to live a normal life—despite being a werewolf—but when he buys an isolated farmhouse, it comes with more adventure than he anticipated! In Good Bones, Dylan’s sexy neighbor Chris Nock helps Dylan renovate the house, but how can Dylan reveal his furry secret? In Buried Bones, a brand-new relationship is hard enough to handle, but the appearance of a ghost and Chris’s dad threaten to bring Dylan and Chris’s relationship toppling. In The Gig, a chance encounter introduces Dylan and Chris to Drew Clifton and Travis Miller of Speechless. In Bone Dry, artist Ery Phillips is house-sitting for Dylan and Chris when a strange—and beautiful—man appears by the pond and inspires his muse.


This my first official review of a bundle. When it comes to rating a bundle, there are so many things that the reviewer must keep in mind, and can be tricky more often than not. In my honest opinion, you can’t make an average value because that will not do right for some of the books of a bundle.

So, in this case, I’m going to rate the emotions that this bundle gave to me.

The first two books is about Dylan and Chris.

Wow guys, I really enjoyed this read mostly the first book.
A couple of years ago, Dylan was bitten by Andy, a former lover of his, and now at every full moon, Dylan turns into a very aggressive werewolf. He is an architect, so he’s secured his home as much as he could to keep himself trapped during his transformations. The hunger he’s experiencing is madding, and after every shift, he finds his place turned apart.
Then when he barely makes to home in one of the full moon evenings, with the help of his brother’s nudging, he decides to move somewhere out of the city but not so far for him that commuting would be a problem.
Dylan doesn’t know that his new house will come with a redneck neighbor, who is not only the nephew of the former owner, but also a handyman.
Things go pretty well at first. Dylan hires Chris and sparks fly. But Dylan’s past seemed to find him even in this remote part of the world.
Chris is thee opposite of what Dylan is. He’s not dumb, but his manners are raw, and he freely shares his opinion as he sees it. I love Chris’ no bs attitude.
Dylan finds the strength to fight his insecurites from Chris’ confidence when Chris hands all of himself to Dylan intimately.
Now I have to open a parenthesis to let you in on my opinion when it comes to power plays. It’s not very often I read a well-balanced book like this! I was washed away by the smooth change of power between these two. Dylan’s aggressiveness/insecurities and Chris’s confidence/strength/the ability to let go. The reading was so smooth that you don’t struggle with sudden changes in character behavior.

While in the first book we see these two become one, in the second book the past of both shows its head perturbing Dylan and Chris’s life together. We go more into the paranormal world, learning about new species in Kim’s world. The second book is followed by a short story, a story told not by our MC’s point of view.

And here comes the hard part. While I enjoyed the first three books of the series, this book was a struggle. A nix, a water spirit… guys it’s not my thing, so I don’t want to write much about it because I really can’t. For me, it’s a shallow read, like a very shallow read. So my rating doesn’t contain this book actually. And if it would be a separate read bought by me, it would be probably a DNF.

But that said guys, you need to read Dylan and Chris and even Ery’s and Karl’s story.

Have fun!
