The Two of Us: A Novel – Andy Jones

The Two of Us: A Novel – Andy Jones

I am always interested when I see a love type story written by a man, from the perspective of a male. There are not many of them out there and I always enjoy seeing them, as they provide a different take on a typical romance-ish tale. The Two of Us […]

The Edge of Lost – Kristina McMorris

The Edge of Lost – Kristina McMorris
