IT'S A BAD, BAD, BAD, BAD WORLD by Curtis Lawson
It's A Bad, Bad, Bad, Bad World - Curtis M. Lawson

 

Rarely does a book leave me without words, yet here I am. IT'S A BAD, BAD, BAD, BAD WORLD is full of horrible people and terrible situations. It was funny as hell and I loved it!

 

Written in vivid style it was easy to picture this in my imagination as a movie. Combine some ancient relics with your favorite action film, add a bit of any Tarantino movie, sprinkle in a dry sense of humor and finish it off with the "franks and beans" scene from There's Something About Mary-and Voila! You have the recipe for this book. (I tried to fit the battle-nun into my recipe but I can't think of anything, anywhere to liken her to. That's right, there's a bad-ass battle nun, deal with it.)

 

 

 

As I said, this book left me speechless, so I had to borrow descriptions of films to write this review. A friend of mine used the movie Smoking Aces to help describe this book, and I find that to be an apt comparison as well. I just don't know what else to say. Fun, full of action and humor, IT'S A BAD, BAD, BAD, BAD WORLD is a great way to spend a few hours. Highly recommended!

Chances
Hot Daddy - Lila Monroe

This is book #2, in the Billionaire Bachelors series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  to avoid spoilers and to have better understanding of this series, I recommend reading this in order.

 

Cal and Jules have a secret and sexy history.  When they come face to face again it shocks them both.  It also ignites the passion they left behind.

 

Jules wants to help Cal.  He is coming to mean a lot to her.  Can she risk her heart and use her head at the same time?  It could be the future will be worth it.

 

This sexy story started off with a little unexpected bit of flashbacks.  I am not one to usually like them - do not hate on me it is just a personal opinion - and this book just blew me away.  I loved the story, the sexy times, the humor, all of it.  I found it a book with a story that I could not put down.  I give this a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Fine, I guess.
Place to Belong - Claire Boston

This is the last book in a series, and while I was entirely able to follow what was happening, it involved going to all of the weddings of the previous three series couples, which is a lot of weddings. (On years where I've had a wedding every other weekend, my response is usually OMG! Stop getting married, people!) I'm not sure if being attached to the characters before hand would have made wedding hell a little easier or not.

 

So this was the author's first m/m romance (the rest of the series, and all her other books are f/m) and it kind of shows. It's ALL about coming out angst, and while none of the notes hit are offensive, it's like the weddings: too much. Sean is the saddest panda in the glen, and apparently has spent his entire life previous to now closeted in gibbering terror in small town Ireland, until he meets his blood family and his sister's PA, the smoking hot American gay man. The rest off the book is absolutely everyone giving Sean hugs and telling him it's going to be okay (spoiler alert: it is). Which is fine, if you're into a very high fluff to plot ratio, but made me a little tired of Sean by the end.

 

We get very little of what Hayden wants, aside from an Irish hottie who can enjoy PDA. He spends most of the book helping out with weddings and trying to lure Sean out of the closet with vaguely described sexual favours. There was a liiiiitle too much pressure to come out, especially to come out at work in rural Ireland, but I've read worse on that.

 

I was looking for a fluffy romance to counteract the very unfluffy litfic I was reading, and this was that. It was fine. I don't really plan to read other books by this author.

See those two stars...
I Heart Boston Terriers - Rick R. Reed

They're for Mavis...yeah, Mavis was the only redemptive part of this story for me, so I'm not going to spend a lot of time on this one but as briefly as possible...I didn't like anyone...except Mavis and really sweet little dog what's not to love?

 

As far as Aaron and Christian go...I got nothin' folks I just didn't care one way or the other with these two. I didn't feel the connection and truthfully just didn't care of one was made. Now as for Aaron's sister...ironically I had feelz where she was concerned and none of them were good...first of b*tch, if you're going to own $1200 Jimmy Choo's than treat them like they're worth something and put store them properly otherwise you deserve to have a dog chew on them or even have your cat use them for a potty and if you can't do that than don't  badger your brother into buying a dog he neither needs nor really wanted but you badgered him into it and then he fell in love with sweet little Mavis so...suck it up buttercup and next time be careful what you wish for...see me...see me rage at Becca the biotch.

 

Ok, last but not least we have the narration...again, it just didn't work. Tom Askin is a new to me narrator and unfortunately I found the narration at times to be stilted as if the narrator was concentrating to much on pronouncing every word clearly and concisely at the sacrifice of the narrator's voice sounding smooth and fluid...like he was comfortable reading the story.

 

So at the end of it all...I liked Mavis and hopefully she got a good home...otherwise...it matters not.

It Was OK
Never Dare a Dragon (Boston Dragons) - A... Never Dare a Dragon (Boston Dragons) - Ashlyn Chase

While attending the funeral of a fellow firefighter, Kristine starts a flirty conversation with a firefighter from Boston. Jayce Fierro is part of a family of firefighters. He’s also part of a family of Phoenixes, making it difficult to have any lasting relationships.

This was an ok book. I loved the flirty banter between Kristine and Jayce and the story flowed well. However, like with the other book I read in the series, the side characters tended to grate on me and dim my opinion of if.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book
