review 2017-11-21 16:06
fab 4 star read!
Lavender Fields - Claire Smith,Hot Tree Editing,Natalina Reis
Personal Review, I was asked to read this book by the author, that I write a review was not required. Sky meets Caleb when he falls too fast and can't stop in time. And falls for Caleb. Problem is, Caleb is the soul Sky has been sent to collect. Sky can't carry out his job so another angel is sent. But Sky keeps saving Caleb, and the other angel keeps coming. Can they figure out why Caleb has been targeted? I'm not one for instant professions of love, and it happens here, right in chapter one when Sky falls in love with Caleb. Now, it does kind of explain that away, since Sky falls in love often, but not to the depth of emotion he feels with Caleb. Still, its and instalove thing. Also, first person, present tense AND single point of view is not for me, because ...la.la.la.you know what I'm gonna say, and blah blah blah, hearing from everyone! BUT!!!! It's a nice book, a well written one by a new to me author. It does move at speed in places, and it gets a little . . . painful reading about what Samael does to Sky and his wings. Made me cry a little there! The heat level creeps up through the book. I did think it might actually end up clean but the boys do get their down and dirty on! Not explicit, but well written. Right level of heat for this book. It didn't seem the 200 odd pages its billed at, so a little longer than the usual hangover cure, but it landed in my queue just at the right time, so I'm filing it as such. A great little read. 4 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

not for me.
The Sand Dweller - Molly Neely
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book. This review will be short, and for that I'm sorry. But I am struggling to word what I need to say about this book. I'm not entirely sure what I think, to be honest, about this book. There is a lot of flipping between the past and present, and while each change is headed, there is much missing from each flip. I felt that more could have been made of the NOW, rather than the past. It's well written from a host of different points of view, and I did like that. I didn't spot any spelling or editing errors. I just....*insert sigh*... don't see what the whole point of the story was. It's been left opened ended, maybe for another book, I don't know, it just....*insert ARGH!!!!!* ....I can't word it. I gave it three stars, because we do get to here from everyone, and I did finish it. 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

i need more by this author!
Jerricho's Freedom - Jake C. Wallace Jerricho's Freedom - Jake C. Wallace
Independent reviewer for Divine Magazine, I was gifted my copy of this book.
 
Jerricho is Crown Prince to the Anzuni race, a demon race living among the humans for thousands of years. He is expected to marry the man chosen for him and he is expected to like it. But he doesn't. Jerry loves Rex. When Jerry's fiancee tries to use the heavy handed approach, Jerry decides he is having that one night, that one night of happiness with Rex he may never get again. But that night leads to a chain of events that lead both Jerry and Rex fighting for their lives. And that of their unborn child.
 
The m-preg genre (sub-genre?? trope??) is growing on me! This book deals with it very well, and I liked how both Jerry and Rex reacted to their unexpected news.
 
I liked this book a lot but for two things.
 
one: there is a lot, and I mean A LOT of double crossing and triple crossing and even quadruple crossing!! It got very confusing, for me at least, trying to figure out who were the bad guys and who were the good ones! Even when everything was explained and laid out for me, I was still a little lost.
 
two: Only Jerricho has a say. Yes, yes yes I know, I KNOW I say it a lot, but had Rex had his say?? I think this might have been a five star read, even with the confusing good/bad guys, I really do. I needed to know what he thought when Jerry left; when Jerry told him the news, and what he was thinking about, in the cage opposite Jerry. I really REALLY needed to hear from him.
 
It does get a little gory when talking about what's happening to the missing men and their mates, and there are some scenes of dubious consent but only one or two, and they are short. To be honest, it's only writing this review that they spring to mind, it didn't click while I was reading. I'm trying NOT to give spoilers, you see, but you need to know.
 
I'm left feeling that there should be another book after this one. Is there?? There is a huge fallout from Jerry and Rex' rescue and I'd like to know how that pans out. I'd like to read more about Keith, Jerry's best friend and his mate, Gunn. Eli is still missing. Even Ty, the heavy handed fiancee, I'd like to see what happens to him when he gets THAT news.
 
First I've read of this author. I liked it. Lots. I would like to read more.
 
4 solid stars

The Ghost Bride by Yangsze Choo
The Ghost Bride - Yangsze Choo

The main character was clearly dropped on her head as a child, and I had a lot of other issues with this book. Weirdly I still enjoyed the writing style, enough so that I didn't ditch the book. Which is saying something. The topic was also rather interesting.

 

Still had some major issues, like the MC being insanely shallow. 2 (ish) stars.

a part works!!!
Eternal Desires Of A Succubus: Created In The Shadows Of Heaven - Lucy Lyons
I was gifted my copy of this book from the publisher, and I thank them for that.
 
Isabel knows she is no stunner, and is only going out to get laid. Waking up the next morning, she has only a vague recollection that she did get laid, but she can't remember anything else. Then she notices her body changing, the reactions of the men around her changing, and she starts to remember. Oz, an angel, and Gavin, a vampire, changed Isobel into a succubus. Now she has to deal with the fact that she must have sex, and a lot of it, to survive, but also, that some vampires want to control her for their own greed.
 
I did not know this was a part of a story going in, and I would have said no, had I known. It makes me so cross to only get half the information, half a story, when I'm expecting a full one.
 
It is, part told story aside, a little jumpy. I didn't much care for Isobel, at all. And only she has a say. Gavin and Oz needed a say, to make this a much better half story.
 
I still don't have the full picture, as to WHY Oz and Gavin choose Isobel, and I can't see where the story is going, other than that there will be A LOT of sex involved.
 
Now, I do like my books explicit, I'm quite happy to read porn, I make no apologies for what I like to read. BUT there has to be a good story line behind it. I'm not finding that here.
 
Will I continue on with the series?? probably not while its still being written. When its finished, and is available as a single completed story, then maybe, maybe I will read it then.
 
3 stars.
