My Review Of Kaleidoscope

By A.J. Llewellyn
ISBN-13: 978-1-61124-159-4 (Electronic)

Teddy Bardin Marries Aususte, whom he thought was the man of his dreams, and to start a new life with his husband, he moved from New York in Paris, the city of light. Now, on a rainy afternoon, a life- shattering telephone call arrives, and Teddy learns that Auguste has been in a car accident.

After racing to the hospital to visit his stricken husband, Teddy is in for another emotional shock --- listed among Auguste’s injuries is a nearly severed penis. It comes as an even bigger surprise when Teddy learns that Auguste was with another man who was orally pleasuring him at the moment of impact. And that’s only the beginning in a series of heartbreaking discoveries.
Teddy quickly comes to realize he must make some tough decisions about his future, especially about his marriage and unfaithful husband… and also his growing obsession with Pierre, the other important man in Auguste’s life…

Teddy is a loveable, honest genuine person who truly cares about those closest to him. When he arrives at the hospital and finds out that his husband Aususte has cheated on him it is like his world is ripped out from under him and he flounders for only a moment. In a display that I can honestly say is inspirational he picks himself up and gathers information for himself when he realizes that those closest to him are now hiding things from him. Packing himself up Teddy moves on and starts the pain for path of putting one foot in front of the other and move on with is life. He feels that for him the best way to do this is to confront Pierre the person thinks is the cause of all his issues and the reason for his destroyed marriage. Only to Find that is not the case and finds out sometimes the best and most beautiful Kaleidoscope in life is found not in what you think you have but in the little things most people don’t see.
Pierre is a hard working Waiter who had dreams of grander things. His dangerous love for a man who he has had an on again off again relationship with ends when he nearly severs Aususte’s penis off in a motor vehicle accident Furthering harming an injury cause when Pierre tried to end his life. When a not so change meeting with the man who was married to his lover and an accident at work cause both Pierre and Teddy to realize that love really is a Kaleidoscope… And sometimes the best things in life can be found in the worse ways.
Kaleidoscope was honestly one of the most heartwarming novels I have read recently. AJ have again shown us sometimes true love can be found in the smallest of places and come out of the worst things in the world. Teddy and Pierre inspired me to believe in true love, love at first sight and just the beauty of the littlest things. These two people met through the worst possible way. And Teddy Sadly was played by people he thought card for him. Yet through it all he stayed true to his patients and himself and moved on and found the love he wanted all along.

On my Erect Peni scale of 1-10 for sexual hotness I will give it a 10 still… Even though this isn’t AJ’s normal brand of sexy hot man love The tenderness and creative use of flavored lube still makes it HOT!!!!
On my Must have scale of 1-10 Kaleidoscope is a MUST READ and a MUST HAVE!!!!!
This is truly a short story worth the Read!

My Review of The Camino By AJ Llewellyn

The Camino
By : A. J. Llewellyn  | Other books by A. J. Llewellyn
Published By : eXtasy Books
ISBN # : 978-1-55487-947-2


Antonio, a California seminarian meets the man of his dreams during a walking tour of Spain. Little does he know...handsome Jeb is a storm demon?

Each year thousands of people make a spiritual journey called The Camino, an ancient walk through Europe, crisscrossing through France, Portugal and Spain. For two very different men, the trip has special dangers and attractions. Antonio is one step away from becoming a transitional deacon, the final phase before becoming a priest, but feels his newfound desire for other men violates his chosen vocation.

 His nighttime dreams reveal a man he is passionate about, but to his amazement, he looks just like Jeb, a very handsome, mysterious man who is questioning things in his own life. How can Antonio be in love with someone who worships evil? And why is Jeb walking the path of The Camino?

Antonio is lovablelikable and very much like many people in this world trying to find his way in a world that doesn’t always accept people different than themselves. In other words he is struggling with his sexuality. He knows that he is gay but he doesn’t know how god could love him because of it so he takes a vacation... His quest to find himself leads him to discover that sometimes Evil doesn’t come in the form you think it does nor is Evil always what you expect it to be.

Jeb in life was a special person who loved God and family. For those reasons he bargained with the devil. However being a storm demon and watcher turn out to be harder than expected and Jeb learns that even his bargain with Satan himself couldn’t erase the beautiful nature within himself he can no longer see. When he is punished for interfering in something he was forbidden to interfere with so as punishment he is dumped latterly into the middle of The Running of the Bulls on Spain. No money, No Identification Jeb wanders around until he finds the one person he would give his life to protect.

Love, Lust, Danger, a horny angel and revelations surround Jeb and Antonio can they untangle all the lies and find their happily ever after???  I’m not going to tell you!!!!!!! Go get the Book and Find out….

Like all of AJ’s books The Camino pulled me in and wouldn’t let me go until I finished it.  Again he takes up to beautiful forgotten places that truly leave you longing to visit... I know that now some time in my life I want to walk the Camino and have a life changing pilgrimage myself.  Honestly The Camino is on my list of books that have changed my life… AJ has a way to really latch on and show us a person’s struggle and make us feel it as deeply as if it was our own struggle. This is truly a master piece and a book I think AJ should truly be proud of.

The Camino seemed shorter that normal for AJ (this could be because it was a page turner and I couldn’t nor would I put it down and I am a mom of 4 wonderful little heathens) If I could recommend a starter book if your New to AJ’s writing this would be one other my top 3. The Sex is hot but the story itself is hotter. Over all like most of my reviews of AJ’s books it’s a Keeper! I can’t help it He honestly cannot writer a bad book.

On my Erect Peni Scale of 1-10 for Sex and Overall Hotness I have to give it a 10!!! This is one I recommend a cold shower and no panties for... Hell if you can read it naked in a cold bath tub.

On my scale of Overall Must have I have to rate this at a MUST MUST MUST have. On a Scale of 1-10 Again a 10... Get this book if you haven’t!!!!!

In closing I want to say that The Camino is not only a wonderful book to read I highly suggest looking into checking out the real Camino and having a life altering experience for the mind body and Soul.
