Review - The Whole Man by CF Rose
The Whole Man - CF Rose

I really liked this book – there was a lot going on, but the overall story was good. Evan and Jesse have a very brief history so there is an element of a second chance, which I enjoy, and there is also a bit of mystery thrown in which allows us to really get to know the characters. And I’m a sucker for sports romances, so there were a lot of things I really liked about this book.

 

Both Jesse and Evan are carrying around some issues from their past. Jesse turned to alcohol as a way of helping him grieve the loss of his brother. Evan has closed herself off after breaking free from an abusive relationship. To say these two had some issues to overcome is an understatement. When they meet up 10 years after their very brief affair, they are not the same two people who shared a crazy 48 hours together. Neither one of them are good at communicating or sharing so a lot of things that may have been talked out right away are left unsaid and/or unknown to each other which causes a lot of angst between them.

 

One thing that seemed to slow the reading down a bit was that there were too many things going on at once. The overall story of Jesse and Evan finding their way back to each other was good, but there were many sub-plots going on within and between their two families which seemed to bog me down a little. I liked the abusive ex story line, but some of the other things I think could have been left out or reworked to keep the pace up.

 

Overall, I think this was a great debut novel for the author it definitely has me curious to see if there will be any other books that deal with Jesse’s brothers.

 

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

NetGalley November
Freefall - Jill Sorenson

*Book source ~ NetGalley

 

On her way to start her vacation with her sister, Faith, park ranger Hope Banning gets a call that sends her to a plane crash on a mountain top. Hope persuades Faith to continue on to the white water rafting trip and tells her she’ll catch up when she’s done.  Except this assessment and rescue turn out much different than Hope could have believed and now she and civilian Sam Rutherford as well as Faith and several others are fighting for their lives.

 

This story is a bit frustrating, but overall not a bad read. There is plenty to love about the characters and the writing, but the plot stretches the bounds of believability a bit. Add in majorly stupid decisions by smart people, physical trauma that doesn’t seem to slow anyone down and an ending that drags along for far too long and the balance ends up somewhere in the middle of the road. It could have been better, but it also could have been worse. I do love the characters though. They seem so real.

Monster Porn Monday #2
Supernatural Seductions - Kiki Wellington

*Book source ~ Free on Amazon

 

Jeannie and her husband buy a house in the country and plan to make it into a B&B. It comes with lovely woodwork, woods all around and a horny ghost with a perpetual woody. Wood is the word of the day. And Jeannie loves to buy a vowel. An “O” in particular. Naughty woman. Even naughtier ghost.

 

The fact it isn’t about Sam and Dean is highly disappointing. *sigh* Anyway, this is a middle of the road monster porn. Is a ghost a monster? Unsure. But I wanted a Halloween-y (heh eh weeny) type of monster porn, so ghost it is. He is definitely very horny. And Jeannie is a bit of a slut. She says she loves her husband, but she can’t wait to push him out the door so she can have spectral orgasms with her ghostly lover. Not particularly impressed with her. The writing is only so-so, but the sex is hot.

Scent of the Centaur (Surprise Passion Series Book 4) - Mia Fox

*Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.

 

Athena commits a major no-no by sleeping with a student while working as a lecturer in Greek history and mythology at a college. Put on administrative leave she decides to take a trip of a lifetime. To Greece. Athena is about to get schooled.

 

Kyros may be a centaur but he’s definitely hung like a horse. This isn’t very monstery, but it’s kinda hot. There are some editing issues and it’s a bit short with an abrupt ending, but all-in-all not a bad quick read.
