Arrow season 5 Gay character Mr Terrific

I’m currently watching season 5 of DC’s Arrow & yet again I’m asking, why is it that the gay character Curtis Holt (Mr Terrific) is the guy who not only gets beaten  & is useless in a fight, but is the one who’s given the speech about how his strength is in technology & helping defeat the bad guys means staying behind & using his head. Why is it rarely the other way round? I would have written it that Rene Ramirez (Wild Dog) was the gay character.

We get a strong tough gay woman in Supergirl, Alex Danvers so when do we get a kickass, no mess gay male? It’s just a little thing & the story is the important element, but I so want a gay role model more tough that tech.

Man Crush!

I may have given up on the idea of me finding romance but I didn’t expect to get a crush! I honestly didn’t know you could get a ‘crush’ after a certain age but that’s stupid when you think about it.

I’m working on a building site & although I’m on a separate job to a lot of the builders, it hasn’t stopped me developing a full on crush on the foreman. We call him Leon as he drives a SEAT Leon. The man has the eyes that pin you (eagle like) to the spot. He isn’t a stunner at all, it’s just his presence and size. He rarely smiles and just gives off masculinity. With thighs as big as my waist I literally go weak when he passes. He winked at me once and I almost fell off the scaffolding.

I wish we all had this kind of feeling more often throughout life. It has shown me that I still do have some feelings in my body…. somewhere lol.

BOOK REVIEW ‘Summer of Awakenings ’ (ASSASSIN/SHIFTER BOOK 15) By Sandrine Gasq-Dion

Here we go…..book 15. Once again we have a double romance which in this series has never gone down particularly well with me.  I find that I favour one couple’s story over the other or the two stories are too similar and simply repetitive.

This is the romance of Kory Maguire and Jacob Steele, Will Cooper and Seth Ralston & it all takes place at Camp Pride which is an outreach centre for abused & neglected young people. It’s like summer camp!

I enjoyed this story because I imagined the camp as a place here in the UK called Croyde Bay. Picturing Croyde Bay helped me get the feel of this story.

Seth and Will ended up becoming my favourite couple. In my head, Seth is Henry Cavill, so it was very easy to picture him from that point.

I don’t have much to say this time. It was a good addition to the series and tied up the story of Kory and Jacob which started a few books ago. Old characters appeared to help prepare the camp which is always great to see. Colin Greystone and Nikolai Markov’s ongoing strange relationship takes a step forward during a disaster in the final act of the book and is clearly setting up events in book 17.

I enjoyed this one as it had that great summer feel.

Christmas Alone

Christmas-living-room-with-knitted-chair-cover--Country-Homes--Interiors--Housetohome.co.ukWould it surprise you to learn that I don’t like Christmas? It’s perhaps more that I just don’t want it. I’m a family guy. I want the whole settle down package. Yet I’m still on my own, and I think that’s really sad.

Holiday season is for spoiling & sharing with people you love and care about, amongst other things.

I want to shower my partner with tinsel, trees, lights, food and traditional music. But there’s no point when I’m on my own. Seriously it’s a chore to get through. Which is strange because, I would be the biggest holiday elf you could imagine. I would love nothing more than to spoil my guy.

There is one good thing though. Man on man romance novels weren’t in my life last year. Now, I love vicariously through others, It’s not so bad & for that I am extremely grateful.
