    REVIEW: Blasphemy! by T.J. Klune

    42850739. sx318

    Blasphemy! – T.J. Klune



    When he sees Satan stuck in a rut, God provides a little divine intervention, suggesting the Devil get back to basics.

    Taking God’s advice, Satan answers a summons to a crossroad on Earth, hellbent on brokering a deal in exchange for the soul of the human who summoned him.

    The problem with that is the summoner is a deviant twink named Jimmy who immediately falls in love at first sight, much to Satan’s dismay.

    Blasphemy! Where God is a frat bro who wants to get his brother laid, Satan absolutely does not have time for this shit, and Jimmy wants to climb the Devil like a tree.

    This comes with a warning:


    Straight up: if you are extremely religious and/or find the idea of Satan as a main character to be offensive, this is not the story for you. You have been warned up front. You are 100% allowed to have a boner for Jesus, but please don’t leave comments about how offended you are and blah, blah, blah. I don’t have time for such nonsense.

    I totally love the wicked, irreverent humor here! Satan as a lonely, workaholic boss of hell and God as a sarcastic, meddling do-gooder who just loves to set Satan up on blind dates. Unbeknownst to humanity, these two powers that be get along really well. Here comes Jimmy, a sassy twink with a daddy kink for red-skinned devils. Also Jesus as a rebellious teenager because he missed out on his teenage years. This set-up just screams WTF?!

    And TJ couldn’t resist poking fun at politicians, vegans who make you feel guilty for eating meat and his all time-favorite director to hate, Michael Bay.

    Though I had to admit, I didn’t warm up to Jimmy immediately. Maybe he was throwing himself a little too much at Satan but God knows, because of course he does, Jimmy is good for Satan. Satan tried to resist but he is just putty in Jimmy’s hands. And so Satan got a boyfriend, God is in heaven and all’s right with the world.

    Corruption by Kim Fielding – posted here

    Purgatory by M.C. Rayne – A grief-stricken Bailey commits suicide after his husband Greyson succumbs to cancer. Drench with sorrow and darkness but always, always holding on to the light. 

    I feel you Bailey!

    Sin to Get Saved by Michael P. Thomas – posted here

    Cardinal Sins by J. Alan Veerkamp – Mysterious former priest Jacob had his runic tattoos done by Ozzie with whom he feels strong desires. And I am feeling strong Constantine vibes.

    21st Century Demon by Asta Idonea – A day (and night) with a demon going about his business seducing mortals for their soul. Saul is an overconfident demon who suddenly found himself unexpectedly attached to his mark. I love the writing style, humor and pop culture references. I’m rooting hard for Saul and Tom

    Purgatory Pink by Eric Gober – Lovable trio of gay friends Mickey, Damon and Angelo vacations in a gay ski resort. Mickey tries to play cupid to feuding frenemies Damon and Angelo. Will they or won’t they? Slightly amusing, slightly sassy, slightly cheesy.

    Fade to Light by Nephylim – Taz, whose circumstances are unknown meets cross-dressing Pix and somber Rohan in one of his endless journeys. Beyond that I don’t know anymore because I don’t care  and I couldn’t connect with any of characters plus there’s hardly any world building. Weakest of the bunch.

    Guardian by Eddy LeFey – A Guardian angel, Callum, on a mission to save his charge, Rory, from demonic frat boys. Steve and his groping hands are annoying but at the very least it’s fluffy.

    Drawing Head by S. Zanne – A story about a serial killing demon, Devin and James, the hunter out to get him. Generations of Goodman had tried but only he succeeded. But damn that ending! He got you too, didn’t he, James?

    A Wolf in the Fold by Jana Denardo – Incubus Carduus also known as David, the tea monkey and aspiring artist, seeks to be a better person for his lover, Mark, a detective. Very domesticated demon. Befriends interesting Goth girl, Lamia. Eats sex offenders. I just wished he told Mark the truth.

    Dripping in SIn by Kassandra Lea – A demon, Flynn, had a hot date with his lover, the angel Samuel. That’s it really. It’s not any different from how humans go about it.
