Caden DeSarro likes more cushion for the pushin’.  He likes them with more to love, a sentiment I fully understand and champion with my ever-expanding waistline.  In a world of twink-orexia and the Muscle Mary Mafia, Rick R. Reed explores what happens when your preference lies on the side of the meatier man.  And what a job he does!

Some days I am so thankful for this blog and the wonderful people it has put me in contact with.  Today is one of those days, because it made my acquaintance with Huston Piner’s 2013 release My Life as a Myth published on Prizm Books.  I knew nothing about this tale when it was presented to me, and the humble cover and even humbler author left me without a clue as to what to expect.  That made the journey all the more exciting and special, as what unfurled in the pages of this wonderfully written masterpiece was nothing short of a miracle.

Well I’m sure most of you have sat inside with the curtains closed, clutching your lucky rabbit’s feet and staying far away from oncoming black cats, what with today being the most unlucky day of the year.  So if you’re at home and the smell of sage is clogging up your nostrils to ward off bad omens and you’re finding yourself at a loss, Insight Out! brings you a new feature.  Here we have a top-ten list of the books you should read when your own bad luck is getting you down.  At the end of the day, no one knows pain like a fictional homosexual, so take a look at my personally handpicked selection and bask in the fact that while you may have got caught in the rain with a defective umbrella and your cell just died, life as you know it will never compare to the sorry literary victims listed below.  Read them, and literally, weep!

I’m incredibly excited to be reviewing this series today as Mr Ryder is a fellow Brit, bridging the Atlantic and writing of what happens when a boy from Blighty takes his wares over the pond, something Ryder himself is living.  The nifty little stories have to be done in one go, just like I read them, so without further ado, introducing Ben Ryder from the insatiable Dreamspinner Press.

Love overcoming adversity.  It’s a simplistic way to describe JP Barnaby’s penchant for the art she creates on the page.  If you were to delve deeper however, you’d be more inclined to call it love in the face of utter fucked-upness!  The Queen of the Obscene is back with a torrid tale of bashing down boundaries in lieu of post traumatic stress and survivors guilt.  2012’s Aaron was released on the Dreamspinner Press for all to enjoy, being awarded the Goodreads M/M Romance Members Choice Award for 2012.

I’m a late-comer to gay fiction, so it’s no surprise that it took a while for Something Like Summer to come across my desk.  I sat down one night to read it and, as bad as it sounds, I wasn’t impressed, barely scrambling through the first few chapters before rolling my eyes and flicking off the lights, giving it no further thought.  Then when my friend Matt recommended it to me, I was between books.  What the hell?  I’d give it another go.  What I’d first thought was just your typical nerd-meets-jock gay love story unfolded into something far more.  I don’t like to admit when I’m wrong.   But boy, was I wrong?

Best known for his Foster High series, John Goode has packed a severe wallop with his edgy word-roundhouse kicks that left us all a little teary eyed and spent after reading.  I rarely give an author’s second series a shot after reading something I love, but with Goode, I couldn’t resist.  From the title alone it’s impossible to ignore the overtones of what promises to be a romp that is out of this world and the man, as always, does not fail to deliver.
