good story and characters
Not Another Rock Star (Hot Under Her Collar Book 3) - Amber Belldene

Suzannah/Suze is a young Episcopalian minister who is trying to get a food pantry going. Rushmore/Rush is a rock star who has been classically music trained and steps in to play the organ at church one Sunday even though he  hates church. Rush is hiding out from everyone : his band the media . Rush has been diagnosed with a disease and he is keeping that a secret from everyone even the band. Rush is in the process of trying a new treatment out. Rush is afraid he will go deaf and not be able to perform music anymore. At first Rush and Suze just don’t get along  as Suze has the memory that she had dated before and had been painfully dumped by a rock star. But there was an attraction between Suze and Rush right away. Suze tried to fight it at first but it didn’t work and she finally decided to let Rush  in.

I liked this story a lot but at times got a little confused. However this was well written and I liked the plot. I like how Rush encourages Suze  and how she was always there for him. This kept my attention and I did enjoy this book. But I did feel the ending was a little rushed but did not ruin the story for me. I liked the characters and the ins and outs of this story and I recommend.

not for me.
Dangerous Interference - BJ Wane
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian. Alena goes to Blue Springs, Maine, because that's where her sister was last seen and the disappearance investigation has drawn to a halt. Randy is Sheriff and Nash, a visiting officer from Scotland Yard when the Blue Springs case has some disturbing similarities to a case in London. Alena has an impact on both men, and Alena has a powerful reaction to them as well. But the case is cold, and Alena impatient. And she finds herself in a massive heap of trouble. I have some...issues with this book. There is no discussion, I mean NONE between Nash, Randy and Alena BEFORE that first time one of the men, I forget already which, spank her, in full view of those around them. There was NO discussion about limits, about safe words or anything like that, not even after, when they were planning to attend a PARTY. Now, I'm no expert, but I read a lot of BDSM books, and the level of research that appears in those books differs greatly. Some, its outstanding the amount of research that goes into the life style and what should be expected and not. But not so here. I felt rushed into the relationship between the three of them, and I didn't much like it. I also felt that the relationship between Nash and Randy could have been developed more. They only met a few weeks ago, and I didn't feel a proper connection to THEIR connection, if you see what I mean. Also, the language used when describing the scenes between them is a little....flowery, and it wasn't consistent. Sometimes the words were explicit, and sometimes, almost Mills and Boon-worthy. I don't mind either way, but I don't think that HERE, mixing them just didn't work for me. There is no sexual contact between Nash and Randy. Had there been, I might have enjoyed it more. I'm not ashamed to say I prefer that! AND! Nash's language annoyed me, like GRRRRRRRR. Mate, luv, chap?? almost every time he spoke to Alena or Randy he used words like that. Seriously, I am UK based. I don't know ANYONE who uses those words like Nash does! I liked that I didn't get what had happened to Alena's sister until it was all resolved in the book. I had an idea, I was just wrong about how much that person was involved. Would I read anything else by Wane?? Possibly. I liked the how the sister's disappearance story was dealt with, Alena/Randy/Nash aside. I'll give them another go, if the story is not a BDSM or three way book. I did finish though, and it was touch and go for a while. I had to keep putting it down and coming back to it, reading other things in between. 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

something didn't quite work for me
Play Chopin for Me - Max Vos,A. J. Corza Play Chopin for Me - Max Vos,A. J. Corza
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book. Dale's home and restaurant are destroyed by fire. Turning up at his sister's house in his boxers and a raincoat give Chrissie the opportunity to finally give Dale the make over she has longed to give him. Al's roommate leave, and he needs a new one to meet rent. Dale and Al come together, and neither expected what it would lead to. *insert sigh* *insert another, deeper sigh* I wanted to love this, I really did. But for a couple of reasons, I didn't. I did not connect, at any level, with either Dale or Al. I don't know why, and it always pains me when I am unable to voice what I need to say. Pains me deeply. Especially when this is a new to me author and I get to meet him later this year! I found there was a great deal of dialogue, and the gaps between were few. What there was in the gaps, though, was good! I liked the connection between Al's father and Dale's solicitors father. I did not like what Al's grandmother did!! I did like the way it came out though, just not the depths she went to to get what she wanted. Oh, wait. I take my non-connection back. I DID feel for Al, when all was revealed. I even shed a tear for him. I loved how, one way or another, Dale, Al and Chrissie all ended up in Paris, at the same time! Cute, that. Really cute. So all in all, a good book, but for ME, not a great one. 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

not needed to follow main books
Tangled In Shadows: Kyn Kronicles Short Stories - Jami Gray
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I was gifted my copy of this book. Four shorts, designed to be read along the main books. Wrapped In Shadows, book 0.5 We are into produced to Raine, Gavin and Xander here. They are Wraith, members of an elite guard with in the Kyn, similar to the humans Black Ops teams. Only Gavin has a say here. Submerged In Shadows, book 1.5 Raine is on an enforced vacation with her uncle, Ryan, when they come across a Selkie, trying to get her skin back. I didn't fully understand the implications of what that meant, though. Raine speaks here. Masked By Shadows, book 2.5 Raine and Gavin are sent to New Orleans to deliver a package, and nothing is ever simple for this pair! Ensnared By Shadows, book 3.5 Ryuu, second to Vidis, of the Motoki Pack, has to deal with Lliana, of the Division, and a rather nasty spider! I don't know what I expected to get from these four little shorts, but I felt a little let down by them. After the first which was an introduction to the Kyn and these people, the other three books seemed kind of . . .I dunno . . .after thoughts, maybe? Oh don't get me wrong, they are nice little shorts, but I don't see their connections to the main books. Maybe that will come in future books, the diverging of the storylines. Nice little shorts, but you don't NEED them to enjoy the main books. 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

Continues to be charming
Star-Lord (2016-) #3 - Chip Zdarsky,Kris Anka

There are issues at the bar, Peter still can't get a date with his ex, Kitty, and Daredevil is following Peter around.   What's a dude from Space to do?   

 

Show his abs, clearly.   Get his ass stared at, although he never seems to notice.   Babysit some old dude who doesn't really need it, but is warming up to him.   The same mix of dirty and innocent charm make me love this series like you wouldn't believe.   Sadly, there seems to be no series following this one, and I probably wouldn't read it if they didn't keep this team on the book anyway.  That's how much I love them.   I shall be catching up on Jughead, since it is, at least, by the same author.
