    I wish I could give this book more stars! This was my prompt and I can't even begin to thank Kaje Harper for the amazing job she did! I was floored when she took the prompt, I knew it would be special. But she really went above and beyond with almost 250 well thought out, researched, s...

    I have enjoyed most of the books I've read by Kaje Harper. But this one just didn't win my heart. It's a good story but only 2 star rating for me. Carlos had a very difficult life. You would empathise with him. (view spoiler)[He was shunned by his parents for being a girl demanding ...

    I can't begin to describe how great this was to read. A story about a gay man trying to find his way in an environment that doesn't approve of homosexuality but then finds love. Carlos was such a complex and multi layered character. He gave off the tough guy act to hide his vulne...

    It started off strong and got a little mushy in the back half. The whole (view spoiler)[ blackmail angst-fest (hide spoiler)] was unnecessary in my view, and it would have been tighter, and a better love story, without it. Still, Kaje Harper can write, her characters are people, an...

    Somewhere along the line of 3.5 to 4 stars. Rounded up because the awesome Kaje Harper did not only participate in the amazing DRitC event again, but did so with a fantastic full novel. So don't mind me giving this "only" 4 rounded-up-stars -- that has probably more to do with me no...

    There is one thing I am always guaranteed when I read a Kaje Harper book. She will often tackle issues that aren't always mainstream, or may just be becoming the norm. It's one of the reasons I so enjoy her work, and I was very excited to read 'Chasing Death Metal Dreams'. "He?d a...

    This is a full length novel from Love is an Open Road. It was simply "wow"! Carlos - where do you even begin? He has to fight to literally be the man he is, in body and life.....but his determination just lifts off the page - sometimes to his detriment when he closes off to those...

    Absolutely wonderful. I can't recommend this enough. The tale of Carlos Medina, a Mexican-born transgender young man trying to make his way in the world of heavy metal while finding love is complex, unexpected, painful, beautiful. So grateful to Melissa for her amazing prompt, to Kaje ...

    I downloaded this ages and ages ago, a freebie from one of my favourite authors and yes, I really liked it, it was informative as well as entertaining. The book synopsis is well worth reading, the "Dear Author" section, because frankly, I don't like being hit with transgender issues i...

    Enjoyed this story but something holds me back from awarding the full five. Perhaps finding love changed Carlos but I found it a bit hard to believe that he enjoyed playing "second fiddle" in a band when he been the lead singer in his own. Loved reading about a trans person and thought...

    The stories that have come from the DRitC event this year have been amazing. I have read many stories I wouldn't normally have and loved them. I have found new authors and revisited authors I know I love and basically been blown away by the fiction produced. Of course not everything is...

    Let me start by saying that I picked this DRitC story thinking it was only 90 pages. I kept thinking that the characters Kate Harper created were depicted with quite a bit of depth for which a short book. I was also wondering why it was taking me so long to read 90 pages. I thought tha...

    I picked up this gem of a book because I follow the author and saw the release on the GR update feed, and hello?FREE! It took me a bit to understand what I was getting, because I had to follow a link to an unfamiliar location to download it. And, because I didn?t really understa...

    When the sparks fly between these two, it?s far from insta-love. These two men each have baggage and obstacles to overcome. Their story swept me along very easily and naturally. Watching the two very different men learn to trust each other was a thoroughly enjoyable journey. The a...

    And Kaje Harper hits another one out of the park. Gritty raw and real emotions. Nicely woven plot. Interesting secondary characters. And one man's determination to never give up, to take just one more chance. Really good read. ...

    2.5 stars Color me shocked, apparently there?s a first time for everything. Prior to this one, I?d read 29 books by Kaje Harper with an average rating of 4.17 stars, so you can imagine my surprise when I started to realize that I didn?t like what I was reading very much. If...
