The following list presents several your ideas that we'll definitely put online and start working on right now :-)

 

Exclusive Shelf - then you'll be able to shelve books on a thematic shelf without necessity of selecting reading status (read, planning to read, currently reading), e.g. Books I haven't finished.

 

Discussion rooms - they will let you create groups and book clubs to discuss your  reads.

There's a lot of going on right now but we promise to import all your books, shelves and reviews and to answer all your messages :-)

Rings of Sapphire - Stormy Glenn, Lynn Hagen Had some lost plot lines - like not showing August's new strength when mated but overall, it entertained me in a Stormy Glenn kind of way. Nothing too heavy or taken too seriously with some cute moments.
The Executive Lounge - Angela Benedetti This LHNB story had a nice, slow build to the relationship with a little angst thrown in. Liked the older guy, younger guy vibe and the business details were great.

ETA: Can we get a Ty story? He was such a good guy. I also liked the little things this author put in this story, such as Robbie's friends standing up to a tough dom for him and the older dom checking up on him when cuffed to the bike and making a comment how that's why you check. You don't typically see that in stories.
24/7 - Xanthe This was an extremely long read but I enjoyed it and wouldn't shorten it. This is total power exchange with moderate bdsm. It told the story of a relationship over the course of a year with all the ups and downs, and dealing with past histories of the MCs. This is X Files fan fiction. I wasn't a big X Files fan so just ignored that and didn't find I missed out on the story enjoyment.

Dirty Pirate - Kyle Adams This author is a fave and I really appreciate his free shorts. I really liked this short. It is up there with my favorites by this author, [b:Dirty Play|13705678|Dirty Play (Love is Always Write)|Kyle Adams|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1339310234s/13705678.jpg|19338189] and [b:Dirty Cop|17933490|Dirty Cop|Kyle Adams|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1369324063s/17933490.jpg|25140550]. Couple nerdy guys who are funny and sweet becoming roommates and something a little bit more. Kevin was also adorable.

Would love to have more adventures between these MCs. Great free short.
From Don to Dom - Naaju  Rorrete This novella in the LHNB event had a very sexy photo and prompt. The story the author put together matches it very well and was really enjoyable. I'm not sure how tough or violent a mobster Giancarlo was but enjoyed the world building. The story wasn't as dark or edgy as I had expected given the potential, but that could be fleshed out if a full length novel was ever done. There is certainly much more that could be written about and would love to see the edges get pushed a bit more.

Rodrigo and Braulio were cute to watch as their circled each other and then figured out they complemented each other well and liked each other; they also both wanted Giancarlo but had different needs and realized it.

I appreciated that Giancarlo didn't instantly know how to be a dom and admitted him and Rodrigo were just starting. Would like to see him get stronger as a dom as he has one unruly boy who will be testing him. I felt some of Giancarlo's responses to Rodrigo were too tentative but, again, he was figuring out how to act with him. Braulio meanwhile is that cute younger man that they both want to take care.

Well done novella for this event.

Heart of a Mate - Stormy Glenn I liked this threesome and the possibility of a story but the story we got was all over the place, mixed up and full of plot holes. Plus, there was not even the sex I can rely on from this author's paranormals. A threesome does not happen until the end and the sexual interaction between two of the guys is told of off page.
