Book Summery:
Alessandro Aikau, an anthropologist visiting Hawaii from Boston, has been given rare permission to spend a month on the abandoned and forbidden island of Kaho'olawe.
Kem, whose family has been entrusted with the sacred upkeep of this battered piece of paradise, at, first resents Alessandro's unusual assignment. As the two men come to know each other, Kem begins to realize that there is a deeper, mysterious meaning to the man's presence on the island. He begins to sense it is a ritual atonement. But for what?

Kem's kahuna parents won't divulge the secret, and neither will Alessandro, even as the two men become deeply attracted to one another and Alessandro suffers several bad accidents, faces continual sabotage, along with a strange invasion of the island.
Will Alessandro survive his twenty-eight-day ritual, and if so, can he find love with Kem in this abandoned paradise? 

What do you get when you cross a hot ass Hawaiian anthropologist from Boston, a forbidden island and a man with a sacred mission? Well In Abandoned Paradise it’s the fixings for a hotter then hell love that truly to me is one for the ages.  Alessandro is a broken man and like most broken men he knows he has to do something to change his luck. So he decides that the only way for him to be able to live happily ever after is to undo the harm that his late later ancestor did to the Forbidden Island of Kaho'olawe hundreds of years before. Will his Quest for redemption lead him to more then he ever expected? Kaho`olawe holds many secrets for both Alessandro and Kem but the question remains will those secrets lead to love or something more sinister?

Abandoned Paradise for me is one of the books for the ages. It has everything I could want in a book Hawaii, sex, Love, Mystery, sex. Did I say sex? There isn’t a whole a lot of sex. However sometimes it’s not the Quantity of sex that makes or breaks a book but the Quality of the sex. Abandoned Paradise doesn’t disappoint it has everything you come to expect and more from AJ Llewellyn. I loved everything about this book and like many of his other books it makes me want to visit there. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants something that’s romantic, funny, and spine tingly fun.

On my Erect Peni of Hotness Scale This book Gets a 10. Plain and Simple the sex, moments leading to sex, dreams of sex, everything about this book is sexy and hot.

Plain and simple Just sell the kids and Buy this book! I cannot say how awesome this book is enough. This is book truly is worth not waiting to get! SO go out and get this book NOW!

My Review of Relentless Passion By AJ Llewellyn

Relentless Passion By AJ Llewellyn

ISBN: 9781419931901
Genre: M/M Erotic Romance
Rating: HOT
Book Length: Novella
Reviewer: Silver Pixie
Book Summery: Twins Alex and Zeca love to switch identities. It’s harmless fun until Alex wants to date a hot tourist visiting their home of Capri, and asks Zeca to take his place on a date with Alex’s current beau, Antonio. After a day in Antonio’s arms—followed by a long, lusty weekend in his bed during a trip to Naples—Zeca discovers switching places with Alex isn’t so harmless after all. Especially when he realizes he’s falling hard for his brother’s boyfriend.

While struggling with his feelings for Antonio, consoling his semi-celebrity father (who’s having woman troubles) and trying not to upset Alex (who might be in love with Antonio…or his tourist tryst…or maybe the neighbor lady), Zeca wonders how any of them will make it through all the relationship woes with hearts intact.

As Antonio says, “Love has a way of fixing things itself.”

The wonderful thing about reading AJ Llewellyn’s books sometimes is his ability to transport his readers to exotic locations. Relentless Passion doesn’t disappoint. In this wonderful Novella we meet Identical twins Alex and Zeca. Like most Twins they are very much alike but different at the time same time. Alex is more outspoken, carefree and energetic of the 2. Like most Identical Twins they also dress alike and often switch places. However when Alex asks Zeca to Switch places with him so that he can date a new comer named Hugh to the island. Zeca finds out that maybe this time he has bitten off more then he can chew or has he finally met someone who can see him for who he really is?

I was sucked in straight from page one. There isn’t anything about this book I can complain about. Zeca and Alex were true to life Identical Twins with the same pros and cons of being identical Twins. Very few people can tell them apart despite their personality differences, and Alex is selfish and self absorbed. Zeca and Alex also have deep seeded love issues that I don’t want to talk too much about but affect them both emotionally and in Zeca’s case even physically.  What I loved most about this book is Zeca’s undying loyalty to his brother even when faced with loosing his true love and even his heart. Antonio takes the brothers switching with grace and style most men wouldn’t. We also find out a little known secret about Antonio as to why he is ok with the switch.

On my Scale of Erect Peni Scale of Limp to Harder then a Rock (or 1-10) I give Relentless Passion a Harder then a rock Rating (a 10+++++++) Its Hot its sexy and it has a great story line what more can a girl ask for.

On my Scale of Wait till Pay Day Or Sell Your Children (Furry and other) sell them. I don’t honestly think that anyone should have to wait to read this book or the Follow up book Relentless Love!

My Review of Molokai Man By AJ Llewellyn

Molokai Man


Author: A.J Llewellyn

Book Length: 116 pages

Book Summery
Uptight New York writer Jack Christie has just inherited his grandfather’s estate including a small publishing house he never knew Cameron Christie owned. Among Cameron’s papers are the deed to an old house on the remote island of Molokai --they call it the last Hawaiian Island -- and a court summons. Cameron Christie is being sued by relatives of one of the last remaining survivors of the former leper colony, Kalaupapa. Cameron published a journal sent to him by the man who relatives say could not have written the book since he does not have the use of his hands and is senile. In an effort to hold onto the small amount of money that he’s inherited, his grandfather’s hard-earned business, not to mention Cameron’s reputation, Jack reluctantly travels to Molokai to solve the mystery. This shut-down New Yorker encounters more than he bargained for on this island shaped by myth and magic in the form of Alaka’i a man who begins to appear in his dreams. His fantasy world with Alaka’i becomes more and more real, confusing and frightening Jack, who has always managed to keep his emotions under control.
Molokai was a gift to me from my SO because like all men he did something to piss me off and I was tickled I got to use the Kindle Fire to read it. This is one of a growing handful of books from AJ’s BM time (before me). I have been trying to keep up with the present to be worried about the Past lol.
In Molokai we met Jack, a struggling writer in the big bad city. He has a crappy apartment with noise berating him from outside construction and a vicious tenant above him that not only plays loud crappy music is sleeping with Jakes boyfriend. To make matters his grandfather up and dies suddenly leaving him a half of a huge apartment, what he thought was a grieving partner of many years, a publishing house he never knew about, a law suite and a House in Hawaii on an island that was so unlike his grandfather and a mystery man haunting his dreams and his waking conscious.  Deciding that time away from the city and toxic people would be for the best Jack and his grandfathers grieving partner head for the islands too only find out that not everything is not like it seems.
Can Jack fix everything and find the man of his dreams or will secrets, lies and uncertainty do him, Hawaii has a away of revealing her secrets to those she deems worthy. Molokai had me biting my nails. I wanted and needed to know what happened. I refused to put it down so I picked a time when I knew all my kids were sleeping and I couldn’t be bothered. I was sucked in first page and there was no going back from there. My one and only disappointment and I hate to word it like that is I think it was too short. I wanted to know more I NEEDED to know more. Like any book you read of AJ’s based on the islands you know it’s going to be lush, intoxicating and highly educational. AJ have a wonderful talent for that and hot sex. Actually now that I think about it there is sexual tension but not hot Sex!!!! Know what this is a tenement to AJ’s writing skills. It took me 3days to realize there wasn’t any hot man sex in it… Sexual tension but not sex that I can remember!!!
On my Erect Peni Scale of 1-10 Even though there wasn’t AJ’s normal hot sexy sex I am going to give this book a 10 for HOT!!! I know it doesn’t make sense but when you read it you will know why I did this.
Lastly On my Must have Scale of Wait to Payday or Sell the Kids and/or Furry Babies… This is a no brainer sell, sell, sell, and Buy, buy , buy!  Molokai is well worth the money to have.
