Blurb: Scott Aberdeen doesn’t believe in Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, or God. Or love—at least, he knows no one will ever love him. After all, he has carried a torch for his best friend Sloan for a decade, hoping his feelings will be returned one day. But when Sloan finds springtime love with another man, Scott’s fantasies are crushed and his scepticism confirmed.

Cedar Carrington, raised by rock star parents, leads a free-spirited, nomadic life, never staying in one place for long. Due to a dark past, he refuses to share or even think about, he is willing to let men into his bed for sex, but never for the night.

When Scott finds himself camping in the middle of nowhere with over a hundred men who all believe in love—and faeries and a magickal gay brotherhood—he’s pretty sure he’s in the wrong place. And when Cedar connects with cynical, critical Scott, he wonders how he could be falling in for this man of all men. But hearts and lives have been transformed at the Heartland Men’s Festival before, and it might be just the place where two very different men can release their pain and find true love at last.

Review: This is book two in the Seasons of Love Series, but it stands alone just fine. I do suggest you read the other one since it’s fabulous, but you can read this one first and still love it.

Scott works in a law firm and likes his job, but lately his work has been suffering due to the realization he will never have the love of his life since his best friend and crush of 10 years has met and truly fell in love. Scott is a cynical, sceptical man. He doesn’t believe in Santa the tooth fairy magic has his doubts about love and definitely doesn’t believe in God or any Gods for that matter. Scott is a practical man if you can’t see it, touch it, taste it, it’s not true.

Wyatt, one of his close friends has been inviting him to the gay man’s festival but since in Scott’s opinion it’s a bunch of ‘Witchy woo-woo ‘he has no intention of going…ever. But when Peni invites him he thinks it’s more than just a trip to a queer man’s festival as he usually jumps to these conclusions with men, longing so deeply to be loved, and his boss pretty much insists he take 10 days off and comeback in a better spirit. So, he takes the leap. Then things unfold and he finds himself there alone, with just his friend Wyatt and hundreds of free-spirited gay men. Is it his bad luck or is it really a higher power at work?

Cedar, better known at the gay man’s festival as the Jockster is a free-spirited gypsy. Most men want him because of either his looks or the fact that he is the son of two famous rock stars but that’s fine with home, since he has no idea of falling in love or even spending a night in a man’s bed…ever. When he meets Scott, he finds that for some reason he is drawn to the man but why? Scott isn’t a believer in anything, he is cynical, has no self-worth and not near Cedars type if he had one.

This is yet another fabulous read from BG Thomas! I am totally smitten! Watching Scott grow and come out of himself at the Gay men’s retreat is like watching a beautiful butterfly morph from its cocoon! The retreat itself is a real hoot! I laughed more than I have laughed in ages! I think this story is a bit less sad than Spring Lover’s was though it does have its moments that you will need a tissue or two. Everything about this book is fun and fantastic. It’s truly magickal. During the retreat, there are lots of yummy sounding vegan dishes and at salon, there are fun sounding cocktails. What a treat that at the end there are some of the cocktail and dish recipes listed!! A real foodies dream!!

I highly recommend this to everyone, but especially to those of you that love a good story about finding oneself, sexy stories with a good story to them, broken men, and magick! If you like camping, retreats, cocktails, vegan dishes, recipes, faeries and fairies…( I couldn’t resist) some fun drag shows, cool songs, rituals, close friendships, and hot sensual mansex this is definitely for you.

Humbled by This Review of My Story; Grumble Monkey and the Dept Store Elf

Review of Grumble Monkey and the Department Store Elf
Review by Carrigan Chantz

I just finished reading Thomas’ Grumble Monkey & The Department Store Elf. I almost didn’t download this book based on the title alone, but hey, it’s Thomas’ new work, so it was inevitable that I’d give in. The Universe wouldn’t have it any other way, by God. Once again, I was completely drawn into his book; once again, there was this ethereal aura of Universal coincidence; once again, it was an excellent book. Thomas is an excellent writer, but more akin to the truth is that Thomas is an exquisite storyteller.

Review by Crissy

I love the holiday season and the stories it brings. There is something so promising and romantic about this time of year. Grumble Monkey and the Department Store Elf (what a title) is my first holiday read of the season. And what a strong start it is. From the beginning, Thomas held my attention and made me fall in love with Nick and Kit. So, please let me introduce you to the first advent story I’ve read this season.

Kit Jeffries would have gotten on the road earlier if he would have been able to say no to his boss, but he loves his job as a department store elf, loves to see the children’s smiling faces when they first see Santa. When Kit’s Jeep breaks down in the middle of a winter storm on his way home for the holidays, he thinks all hope is lost until he runs into the handsome man at the rest stop.

Nick St. George has it all: money, success, and focus. Too bad those things can’t make him happy. His life has been spent trying to prove himself, and now he’s proven what a mess he actually is. When he encounters a Midwestern winter storm on his trek across the country, Nick is forced to seek shelter at a rest stop. That’s where he meets the obviously gay man in a ridiculous elf hat. He never understood why men have to advertise the sexuality so blatantly, never cared for it either. In fact, he hates it. But when young man tells Nick his sob story about breaking down on his way to see his family and asks for a ride home, Nick reluctantly agrees to give the man a lift. Continue reading

ARC Review: Grumble Monkey and the Department Store Elf

ARC Review: Grumble Monkey and the Department Store Elf
Sandra @ My Fiction Nook

Well, this was a cute short piece of Christmas fluff, without any explicit situations (sexy times were fade to black), but a message of love and family and taking a chance that just might save your life.

Beautiful imagery in a tiny little package. And while Kit was certainly over the top swishy, he owned it and thus only skirted the edge of annoying. To me. To Nick, well – that’s another story.

I really liked how the author pointed out their differences, what with Nick being angry and closed off most of the time, for reasons that are revealed slowly as the story progresses, and Kit being mostly happy, but also intuitive and kind and honest, again for reasons that are revealed through the narrative, without ever feeling like telling. Information is shared via dialogue and narrative, and the characterizations slowly emerge.

I’ve heard it said that anger can be an external manifestation of profound sadness. That certainly applies here. Grumble Monkey Nick is angry outwardly, hiding his pain so deeply that he doesn’t even realize how much pain he is in, or why he reacts the way he does. When he has his epiphany, it’s an awwww moment, and he does exactly what I wanted him to do.

There was one shocking moment toward the end, something that Nick relates as part of the narrative, something that I didn’t see coming, but that fit overall with his characterization.

Kit is just so frakking happy most of the time, and innocent to a certain degree, and his character radiates that with most everything he does or says. He’s the perfect antidote to someone like Nick.

A really cute Christmas story, with two lovable characters and a sweet message overall.

I received a free ARC from the publisher. A positive review was not promised in return. This short novella is part of the Dreamspinner Press 2013 Advent Calendar which you can purchase here: http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/product_info.php?products_id=4506&cPath=62_981

Grumble Monkey and the Department Store Elf Has Been Released and Already Has A Five Star Review!

Grumble Monkey and the Department Store Elf Has Been Released and Already Has A Five Star Review!

Book Review from Rainbow Book Reviews

If ‘Grumble Monkey and the Department Store Elf’ is a typical example of the writing style of B.G. Thomas, then I will definitely be reading more of this author’s work. He has incorporated two of my favorite types of characters, the grumpy curmudgeon, and the young, flamboyantly gay man. He has mixed them together on Christmas Eve, stuck driving together in horrible snow and sleet conditions, and shaken them up a bit to see what comes of the mixing. Ahhhh, such fun! Continue reading

Top 2 Bottom Reviews Gives “Anything Could Happen” Four and a Half Stars!

Top 2 Bottom Reviews – Anything Could Happen

There is something so exquisitely inviting about the way in which B.G Thomas writes. From the first sentence to the last you are engaged, invested and involved with all of his characters both major and minor alike. The connection is tangible and is grounded in a sense of familiarity as we are reintroduced to old friends from his previous body of work. Anything Could Happen is about discovering through those around you exactly who you are. Continue reading
