    1. Okay, granted I might be totally overreacting, but in the few pages I've read of the sample I've encountered three things that made me at least uncomfortable:You also ran like a girl.WHAAAAT? Sorry, but I don't think that's funny at all.***At PrideI scrupulously avoided snapping shots of dog-collared boys on leashesWhy? Do you think something's wrong with them? Since there is no explanation given, this comes off as judgemental at best. ***"Are you the bottom? [] The pattern has been for him to p [...]

    2. I had fun with this. In some ways it triggered in me the same emotions I get when I read Eric Arvin. That possibility of seeing beyond or further or deeperllision of two neutron stars

    4. I really wanted to like this book. And after reading several very nice reviews, I thought I would like it. Unfortunately though, it just hasn't really lived up to my expectations.I do very much like the idea of the story. The concept is absolutely appealing: two lovers chasing each other across time, fated to come together again and again -- who wouldn't love that? The writing isn't half bad, either. So for these reasons, I can definitely understand why others have enjoyed it so much. So what wa [...]

    5. Throughly enjoyed this adventure, and it kept me guessing! Even towards the end of the book, I thought I knew where it was going and I was begging it not to go there, fully expecting it to and leave me feeling a little abused for having read it. It didn't go there! It left me pleased and satisfied. I think one of the reasons I was so worried that it would go there (I'm not going to say exactly there `go there' is, as I don't want to spoil too much), is that Dan Stone did such a good job of deali [...]

    6. Colm McKenna has lived his entire life feeling as if he’s different than everyone else. Not only is he gay, but he also possesses some very unique abilities which nobody else seems to have, and he fears that if anyone were to find out, he would be ostracized even further. Colm can freeze time. He can influence the weather. He can cause objects or people to immobilize. What he doesn’t know yet is that he is an elemental witch.When Colm one day encounters another person who seems to also posse [...]

    7. Interesting and very funny, but I was just a little disappointed with the romanceWarning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS. Rating: 8/10PROS: - This is a funny, funny book. The humor begins on page 1, really gets going by about page 10, and continues until the end. Here’s an early favorite: “I hated gay parties especially because the pressure was particularly acute at such affairs to be witty or charming, or just a hottie.”- There are tons of little details that [...]

    8. Loved it! See Kassa's review, I agree with everything she said. And then go read the book!4/17 re-read: I forgot to mark that I re-read this. (I'm not totally sure about the exact dates. I'm guessing with April.) I enjoyed it - I think what I liked the most about it (probably the first time as well) is that it's very different from the typical m/m book. Refreshing. And it does a great job of balancing the serious romantic stuff with the funny stuff to keep it light and sweet but still emotionall [...]

    9. An adorable, witty story about two male witches destined to fall in love. I've always been fascinated by reincarnation, so this book was right up my alley. Although written in first person, both main characters were well fleshed out and came through surprisingly well. They each had their own quirks and issues, their individual personalities ringing clear amid all the drama. I'd certainly recommend this book to anyone looking for a sweet, classic romance with a paranormal twist.For those of you l [...]

    10. 4.25 Stars. It's not necessary but I would love a sequel of some sort.

    11. Meet Colm and Aiden, two male witches who continue to meet each other again life after life, always breaking up or being broken up before they die – until the next time. The concept may have been done before, but Stone pulls it off like a champ, with the boys being polar opposites of each other – fire and ice magic. The characters are interesting, the plot turns sufficiently, and Stone’s sense of humor is on point. Truly a grand start to the series.

    12. Do you need a little Practical Magic in your life? Sure you do.Dan Stone's The Rest of Our Lives is a funny, romantic, and fascinating read about love and other powerful forces. With writing as clear as a bell, the author takes us on a journey within a journey with this young couple and what a ride it was.

    14. 4.5 starsThis is a light-hearted and wonderfully charming love story, perfect for a summer afternoon. The contemporary romance with a paranormal twist is filled with witty prose, great one liners, and a cast of fabulous characters. The author’s love of magic is easily translated to the language and writing, leaving a fun and entertaining journey as these lovers from across the ages search for the clues to get it right this time. The sensuality and chemistry fairly sparks between the main chara [...]

    15. Publisher: Lethe PressReleased: May 25, 2009Pages: 228ISBN-10: 1590211472ISBN-13: 978-1590211472Stars: 4.0I’m pretty sure I must have been a gay man in a past life. I love gay men. No one else understands a woman or what she’s looking for in romance quite like a gay man. My first boyfriend in public school turned out to be gay, a major high school crush was gay; my first lover was bisexual and I spent the entire year from the summers of 1994 to 1995 in Vancouver hanging out with gay men. Man [...]

    16. Independent review for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book.I loved the IDEA of this book. Imagine, living your life over and over but not remembering the one you love each time?Colm can't remember Aiden. But Aiden knows Colm, has done since the dawn of time when Colm's soul resided in a female. Aiden just need Colm to remember.As I said, I loved the idea of this story, loved that Aiden always left, loved that Colm decided her was going to leave this time. Of course, that didn't qu [...]

    17. I was a bit worried this would be too paranormal for me from the blurb, but actually it is a great blend of contemporary with added extra's! Enjoyed it a lot.Whilst it is Colm and Aiden, it is really about Colm finding himself.I liked that whilst 'the rest of our lives' usually refers to the future, in this case it was their previous incarnations. A bit of humour in the situations, lots of sadness and Colm always being left. Which is what sets him off on his real voyage of discovery!Those wantin [...]

    18. I have to admit a couple things before getting to my review. I am both ADHD and an avid reader. This is a tricky combination that results in my getting really bored really fast with story lines that don’t move along well. Also, if story get all bogged down with excruciating detail I can’t help but skim until the action gets good again. Well, I can honestly say I was hooked on this story within the first few pages and ended up reading every line all the way through.It is a fun combination of [...]

    19. I think this book is in the Romance category, although it has some SciFi and mystery aspects to it, but since I've read a total of one romance novel in my life, I'm not exactly certain. The pair of lovers in this book happen to be men, and I suppose you could also say the book is about gay witches, but that makes the book sound comic for some reason, and even though I did laugh at some of the clever dialogue, the overall tone of the book is as serious as love itself. I was deeply moved by the ch [...]

    20. I loved this book. The only part I didn't like was that I wanted there to be more when it ended. Not to be all gushy, but there's so much working well here: the narrative voice, some interesting world building, a lot of likable characters. I found Aidan to be a bit of an enigma right through the end of the novel, but I think that's okay as the point is that this is Colm's story, it's about the choices he makes for himself.

    21. I so want to love this. Love the magic, the story, the settings, etc but i just dont feel the love of MC's for each other. I dont know why. Theres seems to be a wall between them. But i might reread this in the future, and hoping to see their feeling more clearly
