Title: Good Boys
Series: The Solomon Series, Book One
Author: Keelan Ellis
Genre: Gay Fiction, Detective, Mystery
Length: Novel
Publisher: Wayward Ink Publishing


Paul Solomon is a homicide detective in Baltimore, a city with a high murder rate and a complicated relationship between the police and the citizens they are sworn to protect.
He’s also a gay man who has been out on the job since he first joined. Being out on a tough police force hasn’t always been easy, but living with integrity is important to him.
Paul’s love life becomes as tumultuous as his job with the demise of his relationship of eight years. While dealing with the emotional and physical upheaval in his personal life, a case comes across his desk that hits a little too close to home—the murder of two gay teenagers.
Paul and his partner, Tim Cullen, must solve the double homicide, and Paul has to find a way to move on from his failed relationship.

Review: 5*

I loved this one! I'm head over heals in love with this story and I can't wait to read more of Paul and Owen, especially because of the way the book ended. 

This is not a romance per se, the focus being on the case Paul and his partner are investigation, but the presence of Owen and David  change this to some extent.

Paul Solomon is a well rounded character, sometimes a jerk, but he truly cares for people. Despite having break up with his former bf a year ago, they still lived together and managed to maintain a decent friendship, and not only that, but we get to like Andy, his ex. I hope we will get Andy's story sometime in the future.

Highly recommended.

Review The Haunting of Angus Macgregor by L.J. Harris

4 stars

Quite interesting approach with well developed back story. It starts away a bit slow, but once it started, it kept me on the edge of my seat till the end. As a non native English speaker, I did struggled with the Scottish brogue at times which pulled me from the story and made it hard for me to connect with the characters, however it did bring an air of freshness to the book.
Angus and Daniel make for an interesting pair, with a lot of background for them. Ghost story lovers will certainly appreciate the book.

Angus Macgregor has endured a lot in life. Mother passing when he was a small child, he also nursed an ill father to his last breath. But when he loses his one remaining relative, an uncle he’s never met, his existence is turned on its head forever. Bequeathed Clan Gregor Castle in the Scottish Highlands, Angus leaves Australia behind to take on the family business. It’s there he finds more waiting for him than he ever dreamed possible.

Daniel Ramsey is a man with secrets, none more dangerous than the fact that he can see what others can't. When he meets one particularly handsome Australian, the attraction is immediate. Hesitant to let down his guard, his hand is forced when a former guest of the castle comes calling and attempts to stake a claim on the very man Daniel wants.

About the author
L. J. HARRIS is a mother, wife, an introvert and author. Her family is her life, her soul, and the very reason she gets out of bed every day. Coming a close second is her writing.

She discovered a passion for putting pen to paper in her later years, jotting down poems in birthday cards for family members.

It was then a spark was lit, and ever since, she hasn't been unable to switch off the urge to share her stories.

L.J. Harris discovered that as much as experiencing pain, loss and betrayal can be devastating, capturing the feelings of anguish and loss that some of her characters have had to endure without firsthand knowledge would have proved difficult.

L.J. has been previously published and has shared several online stories and looks forward to continuing to share her work.
