Review: "Indecent Examination" (Groves' Anatomy, #2) by Scarlet Cox
Indecent Examination - Scarlet Cox

"Is that comfortable, Mr. Macintyre?" Groves' eyebrows furrowed gently, and he gazed directly into Neal's eyes.

"Uh." Neal swallowed. His mouth felt dry. "It doesn't hurt," he managed to croak.

 

I liked the first book in this erotica series slightly better.

 

Milking machines aren't really my thing, but it's still worth a quick read for people with a medical fetish love.

Review: "Doctor, Doctor" (Groves' Anatomy, #1) by Scarlet Cox
Doctor, Doctor - Scarlet Cox

"Would you describe this as pleasurable?"

If you are willing to

 

  • completely ignore the existence of the medical ethics of a doctor-patient relationship,
  • not mind at all that Theo, the patient, is totally cheating on his wife,
  • overlook the lack of condoms and safe sex, and
  • deal with some colorful wording such as "pussy-hole", "ass-pussy" or "man-pussy",

 

and just accept this PWP for what is, namely a storyline taken right out of a gay porn video, then you might actually enjoy this. I know I did.

 

There are worse ways to spend 20 minutes of your time, and there's definitely worse erotica out there.

Jorie and the Magic Stones by A. H. Richardson
Jorie and the Magic Stones by A. H. Rich... Jorie and the Magic Stones by A. H. Richardson (2014-12-26) - A. H. Richardson

Jorie and the Magic Stones by A. H. Richardson is a middle grade, children's fiction book about Marjorie Beatrice Weaver who preferred to be called Jorie. She went to live with her Great Aunt Letty Spry who was a frosty old maid. She had many adventures with dragons while she was there. She had red hair and green eyes. I gave it four stars because it kept me entertained.

 

"The two suns of Shyloxia, which gave little light, sank quickly beneath the horizon, leaving the land cloaked in sinister twilight."

 

I received a complimentary Kindle copy from Serano Press and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.

Biblical Review
Biblical by Galt, Christopher (2014) Hardcover - Christopher Galt

Biblical screwed with my head on so many levels. SO many. It’s been a while since I read a book took me by surprise. Even longer since I’ve read one that took me by surprise on multiple occasions. Craig Russell, writing as Christopher Galt, delivers what can only be called a tour de force with Biblical.

 

I didn’t love Biblical from start to finish as I was reading it. There were a few times while reading it that I was sure that he was going to disappointment. There were some red herrings early on that had me rolling my eyes. Luckily he only spent as much time with them as he needed to before returning to the story proper. There was even one point early on when I walked away from the story for a few days because I thought there was no way it was going to be saved from the corner it felt like he was writing into. But I stuck with it, and I’m glad I did. Because soon after, it kicked into straight up Inception-level screwiness. And when it was over, I found myself sitting back and staring at the Audible app in admiration.

 

Biblical was also a hard book for me to rate. I know I just called it a tour de force, and overall it is. It would have been very easy for this book to fail horribly.  It took some serious skill to keep it from spiraling down into a hot mess. Russell avoids that, but he doesn’t quite succeed at avoiding all the issues. At the same time, whether some of them are truly issues is actually debatable. For example, there is basically no character development in this book.

 

I can see where lots of people might have a problem with the lack of character development. For me, though, it wasn’t an issue. I didn’t really care about MacBeth or anyone else. I cared about the puzzle Russell was laying out. I think everyone’s experienced deja vu at some point in their life. Biblical’s whole plot seems to be based around “Well, what if it’s not just in your head?” except for the part where its hard to tell what, exactly, is in your head. And then there’s the ethics of creating an artificial intelligence and the exploration of the powers of belief, amongst other things. Biblical grabs so many of the higher-level questions that I love to ponder on occasion, and draws them into the story in a way that kept me hooked.

 

For a book that’s all about humanity – earth’s – ‘been there, done that’, Biblical is unlike anything I’ve read in… well, ever. I honestly can’t think of a book I could compare it to.  The only thing I would possibly change about the book is the name because I’m sure there are many others that shied away from it because of the fear it would be some Second Coming shtick in the end. (I’m happy to report it definitely wasn’t.) Yeah, it has its issues, but the pros far, far outweigh the cons.

Biblical is a must read /listen. (Ray Porter narrates it, so my vote is for listen, of course!)

Listening To Dust - Brandon Shire

This was another awesome buddy read with my equally awesome friends Josy, Christelle & Lisa. While this was actually a re-read for me, having read it for the first time almost 2 years ago, it turned out to be no less of an emotional read now than it was then. I definitely stand by my original review.

 

Book Review: Listening to Dust

 

While I loved re-reading this book. I have to admit I was grateful for its brevity and I honestly don't think it's something that I will do again. This is not a cute, light or fluffy story it is heart breaking and I'll be the little puddle of goo over in the corner hugging her teddy and trying to piece herself back together again. Thanks & hugs to my awesome friends for doing this with me. I'll see you in two weeks over at Josy's place for our next buddy read, right? Life After Joe by Harper Fox yes, there will be more tears but ladies I promise the ending is totally worth it.
