Mirrors - A.J. Llewellyn,D.J. Manly

If you ever watched the TV serise Ringer  starring Sarah Michelle Geller , then this book is M/M version of that show just with a bit different plot and twists.

 

Since I enjoyed the show and wished they didn't cancel it after the first season I liked reading this book and it was fun to read.

Hey Babe, take a walk on the wild side, Said hey honey, take a walk on the wild side...
Crazy Joe - A.J. Llewellyn,D.J. Manly

Having sex with the bosses son in the copy room at the office Christmas party might not be the best way to further one's career. Who knew? Apparently Dectective Montana Delray of the New Orleans Police Department didn't or at least he didn't know that the hot young man who practically dragged him into the copy room was his captain's son nor did he know that his captain was going to walk in and catch them with their pants down...literally...oopsie, so much for that promising police career.

 

It was this momentary indiscretion that causes Montana to find himself suddenly an officer of the 77th Precinct. That this precinct is a bit on the bizarre side is a mild understatement. Turns out the best thing that the 77th has going for it is Crazy Joe. He's either crazy or there's some truth to the rumor that he's psychic, but the one thing Montana knows for sure is he's hot, he's gay, he's definitely interested and damned if he isn't actually a good cop as well.

 

'Crazy Joe' is told from the alternating point of view of both Montana and Joe. In general I found Montana's perspective to be a bit more entertaining. His dry, caustic and somewhat cynical humor left me chuckling on more than one occasion and while I didn't find Joe quite and entertaining I still found him likable.

 

From start to finish circumstances in this story were bizarre and definitely over the top and while the flow from one POV to the other could have been a bit smoother. I was definitely entertained by the bizarre events that happened at the 77th precinct and enjoyed my brief visit there.

A copy of 'Crazy Joe' was graciously provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Llewellyn's Complete Book of Tarot: A Comprehensive Resource
Llewellyn's Complete Book of Tarot: A Comprehensive Resource - Anthony Louis Do you like Tarots? Do you want to start to read them? Are you curious about one of the most important kind of divination in this world? You read tarots but you want to learn something else?
So, this book
Llewellyn's Complete Book of Tarot - A Comprehensive Resource -

cover87117-medium
is for you!
Written by Anthony Louis, his author has previously written other books for Llewellyn Worldwide, Ltd. about this topic.

Louis is a great estimator, passionate and of tarots reader since he was little.

Maybe he told in the book, because he studied in a catholic reality where of course this stuff was not seen very well, the little boy started to develop a big curiosity about astrology and occultism, later falling in love for tarots.

In this book Louis will tell us how we should read tarots, with a long story of tarots, born in Italy many centuries ago. A real cult for Italians. Very important families created wonderful, stunning tarots in late 1400 most of them unfortunately gone forever.

Tarots will read Louis will be the one of the common italian playing cards with the four seeds of Swords, Coins, Cups and Wands.

I was a tarot reader and I am still a passionate one although I loved to read this book also because I hadn't never learnt how to read our italian playing cards, the most common ones. I have the Egyptian tarots, the Native American tarots. Being a Sagittarius maybe that's the answer.

Maybe.

Anthony tells that some friends of him have more than 100 different kind of tarots. Wow!

Reading tarots can be more simple for some people than not for others.
What Louis says is that practicing and intuiting what the tarot wants to say to the person in front of us the first condition. We mustn't think a lot. When we have the first intuition we know that it is the one for the person in front of us.

We should be free of every strong emotion when we read tarots, Louis says and our mind open to the divination. We mustn't read tarots under stress. Tarots wouldn't speak.

What the reader should do with her/his client?

He/she must be honest with the client because of course it means also to be honest with the spirits and Superior Entity that are telling to us what it will happen to that person in the following months.

Louis has also written a special Hippocratic Oath for Tarot Readers in this sense.
Sometimes tarots can clarify and help also people in need. In real need of answers. Journaling, keeping track of what the tarots wants to say to us become fundamental. Tarots should be read two times per year and reader should always be paid because a payment means that the reader is a serious person.

An interesting section interests the zodiac signs.
And then: a long long section you will fall in love for all dedicated to the meaning of all the most important Major Arcane and common seeds.
Enjoy it, and start to read Tarots!
Oh: and Happy Journey into the Souls!

Thanks to Netgalley.com! for this book.

I think the title says it all...
I Love You, Goodbye - A.J. Llewellyn

This is book 5 in A.J. Llewellyn's 'Honeybone' series and I've read them all and loved them all...or I did until now.

 

Sometimes less is more and in this case for me, I needed less. I should have stopped at book #4. Where do I begin...oh hell, let's start with Dean as in Dean Honeybone. I honestly have to admit his last name makes me giggle it always has, but in spite of that I've enjoyed things until now. Now, he's just annoying...really, Dean we get it. Your life is perfect. You have Jean Luc who is the most amazingly perfect man in all the world. He's gorgeous, he's sexy, he's a world class chef and I really could go on and on but, I think you get it and as if his amazing husband isn't enough there's Kaia their daughter who is also amazing. I mean really how many 11 year olds do you know who spend their summer going to school to learn Mandarin and are psychic? and to top off all this there's Michael. He's the dog and mostly he's named Michael, although his name did change to Nick for one paragraph and don't think that didn't confuse me. Michael, lucky dog that he is gets to eat gourmet doggie meals made by the fabulous Jean Luc.

 

And on top of all this wonderousness that he has sharing his home, Dean has the most amazing cute and adorable neighbours. Named Manda-Jane and Parker. They're so adorable that Kaia wants to keep them and have them move in to their house, she just doesn't want to walk across the road and have dinner at Manda-Jane and Parker's house when they're invited. But Dean and Jean Luc convince her that she should so being the wonderful child that she is she does. Because these are the best neighbours ever. They're so awesome that Dean and Jean Luc, who have known them a whole 2 months are going to buy them a big screen television as  housewarming gift. Things are going along swimmingly until Parker's cousin Ronnie comes to town to help Parker fix their roof after a severe storm wrecks havoc. Then things aren't going to good. Kaia's having premonitions of the bad kind, Manda-Jane and Parker disappear and as if that isn't bad enough one by one people start turning up dead...first it's Parker, then Manda-Jane, will they find Ronnie next? And what's up with Kaia and her predictions? Oh and I forgot to mention that nosy neighbour...you know the one that Dean never liked to begin with...

 

Ironically the saving grace for this whole story is the plotline. Central to this story are the lyrics of a song which is also the title of the book 'I Love You, Goodbye' (you can listen o it on YouTube if you feel so inclined there are at least 2 versions one by Celine Dion and the other by Juris) there is a bit of a twist to the plot at the end of the story one that was reasonably well done. It gave me a bit of a surprise as I hadn't expected quite the ending that I got. Unfortunately it didn't save this book from being overly sappy and just at times an exercise in seeing how far back into my head my eyes would roll.

 

So to Mr. Honeybone & family all I can say is "I love you (or at least I did once upon a time, goodbye".

AJ Llewellyn and DJ Manly – Mirrors
Mirrors - A.J. Llewellyn,D.J. Manly

Reviewer: Victoria

Genre: m/m contemporary

 

Review:
Mirrors is the first book in the Mirrors series by A.J. Llewellyn and D.J. Manly.


Troy Mayer and his identical twin brother Aaron Mayer were raised separately since the age of two and ended up living very different lives. Troy lived a life of luxury with their father and never wanted for anything. Aaron, on the other hand, struggled to survive every day while taking care of their mother.


Dave Alvarez is Troy’s husband. He is handsome and sweet all rolled into one and the opposite of Troy in almost every way. Dave knows all about Troy’s inability to stay faithful and is truly ready to end his relationship with Troy. While Dave loves Troy he just can’t take him, his cheating ways, and all around bad attitude.


The connection between Dave and Aaron is powerful. After an attempt at reconnection, Aaron pretends to be Troy, all the while enjoying the life of luxury. At first, Dave is attracted to “Troy’s” sudden change. Aaron is everything he always wanted Troy to be. As Dave gets to know Aaron, he falls in love with him. The biggest issue of the book is when and how Aaron will tell Dave who he really is. The sex scenes are scorching.

 

I found this book well written with a very unique plot. I enjoyed how the author incorporated mystery, romance and suspense in a believable and realistic way. The main characters and the secondary characters kept my attention. I enjoyed how the story unraveled in a way that kept you wondering how it was going to end. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
