The exciting debut novel from Adrian J. Smith. Firefighters are trained to keep calm in the face of extraordinary events, but James was never prepared for this. Saving people is a regular practice in a firefighter's line of work; it is not something extraordinary or unusual. Just routine. James has been trained to respond to emergency calls and what to do in difficult situations. For James, the most important part of her work is that she knows how to run into a burning building to save a life. She is a firefighter not for the glory and not for the honor. She is there to make a difference. Working hard has always been a common practice for James, but when her secret significant other is pressuring her to solidify their relationship, tensions start to rise. James is being pushed into turning her life upside down and inside out. She can't stop disturbing dreams about a little girl she saved from a house fire years prior. She struggles to find balance through the pressures and stressors of her daily life, but she still can't shake the ill-fated feeling that something is wrong.

The Replacement Guitarist by Lori Toland

The Replacement Guitarist was a nice story, on the “cute boys” stream: if you like your men rough and ready, they are not for sure like Blaze and Jason, one pretty boy and one pretty man of this novel. I often say that this type of story is more aimed to a female target, since I think that is mainly a female characteristic to like fragile and delicate men, more blushing virgins that hot and bothered guys. But for sure is not a “stigmata” that has to mark these books only for women… it’s only an advice from my side to not tear them apart only since they don’t reflect what you are expecting from a gay novel, remember, being gay doesn’t mean that you are one way and only that way, there are different shades, like for everyone, straights, gays, bisexuals, and more.

At the beginning I didn’t frame in the right way nor Blaze or Jason; I had the feeling that both of them were more experienced and “strong”: for me Blaze was a man sure of his sexuality that was pondering Jason as a possible sexual partner, if the man was gay and willing; on the other side Jason was a big shot on the music entertainment that was not against the idea to have a no strings attached relationship with the new guy. I was wrong for both of them.

Blaze is a 100% virgin, both for males than females, but he has his fantasies, and sometime they involve men; when he meets Jason, he is like setting a firm point on his fantasies, he is for sure gay and he wants Jason. Now the problem is, first, to understand if Jason wants him back, and second overcome the “little” problem of his virginity and lack of experience. This is something for which Jason is more than willing to lend an hand: the only important lasting relationship Jason had in the past was with a man, but since it wasn’t an happily ever after, Jason is scared of real involvement, and I think that having relationship with women saves him from delusions; basically he can’t really fall in love for a woman, and so he is save with them. Jason has also some self-esteem issue, something that makes him more real, less big shot name, and more ordinary boyfriend; he is not that far from Blaze, only started earlier and with less trouble.

This is something both Blaze than Jason share: they are not gay, they are not straight, they are not even bisexual, at least if you consider bisexual being with both gender at the same time; they are basically monogamous, but they don’t consider important the gender of their partner. It’s the one they fall in love that define the relationship, if it’s a man, they are gay, if it’s a woman, they are straight. And as in any relationship, they maybe have fantasies for someone else, and so, it’s not strange that, while having a relationship with Jason, Blaze fantasizes to have sex with a beautiful woman, the important thing is that it remains a fantasy.

The Replacement Guitarist is young and fresh, I’m sure it will be a favourite among the young crowd, but even I, that has a right eye from pretty men, appreciated it.

Guy Burgess (April 16, 1911 – August 30, 1963)

Guy Francis de Moncy Burgess (16 April 1911 – 30 August 1963) was a British-born intelligence officer and double agent, who worked for the Soviet Union. He was part of the Cambridge Five spy ring that passed Western secrets to the Soviets before and during the Cold War. Burgess and Anthony Blunt contributed to the Soviet cause with the transmission of secret Foreign Office and MI5 documents that described NATO military strategy. (Picture: Guy Burgess, ca. 1933, by Ramsey & Muspratt)

Guy Francis de Moncy Burgess was born at 2 Albemarle Villas, Devonport, Plymouth, the elder son of Commander Malcolm Kingsford de Moncy Burgess RN and his wife, Evelyn Mary, daughter of William Gillman. He attended Lockers Park Prep School in Hertfordshire and for a period Eton College. Burgess spent two years at the Royal Naval College, Dartmouth, but poor eyesight ended his naval prospects and he returned to Eton. He won an open scholarship to read modern history at Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1930, gained a first in part one of the history tripos (1932) and an aegrotat in part two (1933), and held a two-year postgraduate teaching fellowship. Whilst at Cambridge, he was recruited into the Cambridge Apostles, a secret, elitist debating society, whose members at the time included Anthony Blunt. Like Blunt, Burgess was homosexual. In London Burgess resided at Chester Square and later 5, Bentinck Street, for sometime with Anthony Blunt. Kim Philby and Donald Maclean would often visit him there for consultations or socialising. The house belonged to Lord Rothschild.

Notorious for his bad behaviour and overt alcoholism, Burgess initially worked for The Times and the BBC, as the producer of The Week in Westminster, covering Parliamentary activity - wherein he was able to further his acquaintance with important politicians, becoming personal assistant in the following year (1934) to the right-wing Conservative MP Captain “Jack” Macnamara. He spent some time in Spain during the Spanish Civil War. At Cambridge, he had been a friend of Julian Bell, the English poet who was killed while driving an ambulance in that conflict. Burgess and the other members of the "Five" were divided with regard to the impact of the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, which compromised their hard left ideals.

Dick Scanlan (born 1960) is an American librettist, writer, and actor. He said: "I never want to imply that I lived because I have a stronger life drive than the people who died" Scanlan says, emphatically crediting his rebound to the anti-HIV drug cocktail instead. "I've lost so many people who I knew to be passionate and committed to their lives. That said, it is absolutely true that your outlook contributes to your longevity. I chose to keep investing in my future — even when I had no future"

Donovan & Matthias Vriens-McGrath

Born and raised in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Matthias Vriens-McGrath was educated as a classical ballet dancer. A leg fracture made dancing a short-lived career, so Vriens-McGrath turned to the worlds of design and publishing. Moving to Paris in 1992, he started collaborating with Dutch magazine, eventually becoming both its creative director and editor in chief. Under Vriens-McGrath’s direction, Dutch went from being a local homegrown magazine written in Dutch to an international style bible published in English supported by fashion’s major advertisers. Tom Ford has been quoted as saying Dutch was his favorite magazine of the nineties, and style guru Diane Pernet writes, “Back in the nineties, Matthias was one of the founders of Dutch magazine, a publication that influenced the way we looked at magazines for the next few decades. That was when I first became aware of his power to provoke”. Provocation, always done with a sense of humor and elegance, was one of the keys to Dutch’s success, including the famous naked issue where the only fashion visible were the brand credits themselves. In 1999, Vriens-McGrath became worldwide creative director for Giorgio Armani and a year later was named senior art director for Gucci group. While working as an art director, Vriens-McGrath discovered his passion for photography and moved to New York City, producing editorial for I-D, the Face, Vogue Hommes International, the New York Times, Interview, Numero and Numero Homme. Vriens-McGrath lives and works in Hollywood, California with his husband Donovan Vriens-McGrath, with whom he has created BL33N, an online extravaganza.

Matthias and Donovan got married after Barack Obama was elected US president (January 20, 2009). While gay marriage was not legal at the time, they believed it was their right anyway. The couple asked Matt Tyrnauer, director of Valentino: The Last Emperor , to perform the service. The wedding invitation read: ‘Donovan McGrath and Matthias Vriens invite you to their illegal wedding.’ A year later, they tied the knot legally in Provincetown, Massachusetts.


Back in the nineties, Matthias Vriens-McGrath was one of the founders of Dutch magazine, a publication that influenced the way we looked at magazines for the next few decades. When Donovan met his husband, Matthias, he discovered a different world of creative possibilities. Exposed to his work and influence, Donovan then started to take pictures and found that this is the only other thing that gave him as big a rush as acting or teaching so he instantly loved it. Together they launched BL33N.
