Apr 27: Hollywood Love, Robots and Secret Agents, Last Chances, and More!

Wednesday, April 27th, 2016

New this week! 

Love vs. the Limelight To Terminator, With Love

Check out this week's fun, action-packed LGBTQA releases!

  • Love vs. the Limelight by Manda Olie: Rick Campbell is the Hollywood Heartthrob who has it all: a great career, an excellent agent, and fantastic friends. Unfortunately, he also has a secret that could potentially ruin his success. His reputation as a lady-killer is completely fabricated in order to ensure he keeps getting work. 

    His silence when it comes to the truth may cost him Christian, the love of his life, who's grown tired of being a dirty little secret and has issued Rick an ultimatum: tell the truth or lose Christian. Heartbroken and afraid, harassed by reporters and adrift in a world that's slowly changing, Rick has to choose between the life he's worked hard to build and the man he doesn't want to live without.

  • To Terminator, With Love by Wes Kennedy: Dexter Wu's life is hectic, but he's managing—mostly. He's on the verge of finishing grad school, and that means putting the final touches on his number one project: HAL, a social robot and children's storytelling companion. But his best friend is leaving the country for good, his birthday's coming up, he's swamped with studying for finals, and he hasn't slept in days.

    He's also going to destroy the world.

    At least, his robot is, according to the possibly untrustworthy Agency, an organization whose mission is to protect the world at all costs. After his birthday party turns into a fight for his life, Dexter's simple life of fast food and Netflix binges is replaced by a glitchy oracle, the world's douchiest secret agents, and an ever-increasing chain of conspiracies.

    With the help of Andre, a mysterious and disenchanted young agent turned rogue, Dexter sets out to plead his case to the Director in an effort to get his life back to what counts as normal—but he should know by now nothing is ever so easy.
