The Pill Bugs of Time (Offbeat Crimes #2) by Angel Martinez Review
The Pill Bugs of Time (Offbeat Crimes Book 2) - Angel Martinez

Relationship and communication issues plague Officer Vikash Soren, but those are nothing compared to facing stick-throwing tumbleweeds, pill bugs and…time travel?

Vikash Soren, the perfect police officer except for his odd paranormal ability, never seems to lose his temper. Always serene and competent, he’s taken on the role of mediator in a squad room full of misfits. But on the inside, he’s a mess. Unable to tell his police partner that he loves him, Vikash struggles silently, terrified of losing Kyle as a lover, partner and friend.

 

But life in the 77th Precinct doesn’t leave much room for internal reflection. A confrontation with a stick-throwing tumbleweed in Fairmount Park leads to bizarre consequences involving pill bugs, statues and…time travel? If Vikash manages to survive the week and stay in one point in time, he might be able to address normal things like relationship problems. He just needs Kyle to have a little more patience. Maybe a few centuries’ worth.

 

Review

 

This is the second book in the Off Beat Crimes series and the world and characters are great.

 

Kash and Kyle from the first book are on the case. Being closeted at work is taking a toll on their relationship and they have a case to solve.

 

I liked all the adventure elements and the emotionial struggles of Kash's character.

It was a fun read with a nice romance and HEA.

Hell for the Company: Brimstone 1 (The Horns & Halos Series)
Hell for the Company: Brimstone 1 (The Horns & Halos Series) - Angel Martinez,Erika O Williams Anti-gravity cows were quite intriguing to read about. As for the story it was quite a quick read/listen. It didn't really grab and hold onto my attention as I would have liked it to have. I felt very detached from all the characters. Shax back story and why he left earth was in it's own way absorbing as was Ness's. I appreciated the author trying to inject some humor into the story and that there's no definite line between good and evil.

The narration was great. It was well paced and cleanly and clearly projected. I liked the personality Vance Bastian, the narrator, injected into each character and the distinction he made between each character. He really helped to bring the characters to life.

Wild Rose, Silent Snow by Angel Martinez
Wild Rose, Silent Snow - Angel Martinez
Wild Rose, Silent Snow is roughly based upon Grimm's Rose-Red and Snow-White. In this though, we have Rowan and Snowden, both of whom are simply adorable. They both have similar but different special needs which makes it difficult for them to get a 'normal' job. Their parents have recently died, but the money hasn't been released due to other relatives laying a claim on it. So basically, things are tough for these two. However, they both have hearts of gold, and not having much doesn't stop them from wanting to help others. In this case, a big ole bear!!
 
I won't rehash the story, there's no need and I definitely wouldn't be as good as Angel Martinez is at telling a tale. However, I will say that this is the perfect read for a cold winter's night, where you can spend your time with romance and magic - always a winner for me. Exceedingly well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, this is a gentle romance, with pockets of steam, plenty of humour, and oodles of feel-good factor. Definitely recommended by me.

Wild Rose, Silent Snow
Wild Rose, Silent Snow - Angel Martinez 3.5

I liked this story, but there was something missing that just didn't quite bring it up that further level to a 4 or 5 star. The characters were good, though I strangely liked Snow - the strong, silent brother - better than the others. With the story primarily told through Rowan and Cade's POV, I figure this wasn't a good thing.

The dual POV didn't start until 27% either, which is an odd choice.

There was a bit of an addiction to animalistic language that interrupted the flow, too. But it was nice to see the exploration of two uncommon conditions - broca's aphasia and agraphia - within the two brothers, Rowan and Snow.

There wasn't as much chemistry as I would have liked. It felt genuine and sudden for Snow, which made sense based on his interactions with Griffin, but I found Rowan to have more chemistry with Cade the bear than Cade the man, which was kind of strange and weird.

Overall, a story that I'm in two minds about. I might revisit later in the year to see if it changes the second time around.
