Getting rid of those monsters.
Monster Trouble! - Lane Fredrickson,Michael Robertson

This children's bedtime story is about a brave little girl who deals with ridding her room of monsters in a clever way. It has rhyming and great vocabulary. Teachers might want to go over with younger students that monsters do not exist and this book is just for fun. The ending is so sweet and loveable, you can't help but love little Winifred, the main character.

One great activity for this book could be to have students create and color their own monsters out of construction paper, and then write one way that they would make their monsters leave them alone. 

Reading level: Pre-K-2

Lexile measure: AD580L

I Knew You Were Trouble - Soraya Lane

Book three brings us Nate, the head of the King family, and Faith, his best friends little sister, that he swore to stay away from for all times. Even though he has had the hots for her for years, he kept his promise to his friend. When she shows up on his doorstep looking for help and a safe place to stay he knows he should say no. But when she shows him the evidence of why she needs somewhere to stay and why going to her brother is a bad idea, he can’t turn her away. Now that they are living under the same roof, their friendship heats up and even Sam can’t keep them apart. I liked their story a lot.  I enjoyed watching them grow close and get to know each other better. I do have to admit though that I think I liked Chase’s book better for emotional tension. Faith and Nate’s conflict was a bit tame, though it didn’t detract from the enjoyment of their story. It was sweet, passionate, romantic, and enjoyable. All in all, a cute and great series.

Alys, Always by Harriet Lane
Alys, Always - Harriet Lane

Alys, Always by Harriet Lane  The main character was somewhat of an observing eye into the lives, of the family at the centre of the story. She did come off as having a keen sense of who she was or where she wanted to do, in the future. She sort of fell into life turns rather than take an active role. She was like the camera rolling

Ethan in Gold (Johnnies, #3) by Amy Lane Review
Ethan in Gold - Amy Lane

Evan Costa learned from a very early age that there was no such thing as unconditional love and that it was better to settle for what you could get instead of expecting the world to give you what you need. As Ethan, porn model for Johnnies, he gets exactly what he wants—comradeship and physical contact on trade—and he is perfectly satisfied with that. He’s sure of it. 

Jonah Stevens has spent most of his adult life helping to care for his sister and trying to keep his beleaguered family from fraying at the edges. He’s had very little time to work on his confidence or his body for that matter. When Jonah meets Ethan, he doesn’t see the hurt child or the shamelessly slutty porn star. He sees a funny, sexy, confident man who—against the odds—seems to like Jonah in spite of his very ordinary, but difficult, life. 

Sensing a kindred spirit and a common interest, Ethan thinks a platonic friendship with Jonah won’t violate his fair trade rules of sex and touch, but Jonah has different ideas. Ethan’s pretty sure his choice of jobs has stripped away all hope of a real relationship, but Jonah wants the whole package—the sexy man, the vulnerable boy, the charming companion who works so hard to make other people happy. Jonah wants to prove that underneath the damage Ethan has lived with all his life, he’s still gold with promise and the ability to love.

 

Review

 

I like Evan/Ethan a great deal and I love Jonah. All the time the book is dealing with the love story with Jonah it is great. Even the super sad parts. 

I love a geek hero (and they both have geeky hobbies). I love a plain Joe which Jonah is. I love the Jonah is steadfast and in pursuit. He is awesome. 

Ethan's backstory is sad but the details of his family drama are a bit of a splatter effect and not as well detailed as it could be.

This book parallel in time with the first two books in the series and I read it out of order but it is likely better in order. 

There is a really not great part where Kane the hero in the last books gets referred to by an animal name. It is not good and makes no sense really and wasn't needed and should have been edited out. It really makes the book sink in those places. 

Also, Ethan should have good back to therapy. Lots of triggers in this book too but more off screen than in Book 1 and Book 4.
