Hot Hot Hot!!
Protecting Our Virgin: A Reverse Harem R... Protecting Our Virgin: A Reverse Harem Romance - Frankie Love,Charlie Hart

Protecting Our Virgin by Frankie Love writing as Charlie Hart is a menage M/M/M/M/F story, so it may not be for everyone.  Chloe is stranded in Jamaica when her boyfriend locks her out of their condo.  Enzo, Mason, Noah and Ethan come to the rescue.  Their story is fast-paced and full of smoking hot sex.  And there is a fun story woven in with the sizzle, so it's not only sex.  I enjoyed reading Protecting Our Virgin and would happily read more from Frankie Love/Charlie Hart in the future.  Protecting Our Virgin is book 1 of the Our Virgin Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

There's a party going on here...
Gummy Bears & Grenades - Charlie Cochet

'Gummy Bears & Grenades' is a brief interlude from the danger that is the life of the members of THIRDS...or it's suppose to be.

 

It's time for Dex's bachelor party and what a party it's going to be. I'm totally a THIRDS addict so of course reading this one was a no brainer. I dove into this one without hesitation and I loved if from start to finish. It was fun and funny and just so Dex. 

 

As Dex and Sloane's big day draws closer the inevitable pre-wedding events are happening and this one is all about 'the bachelor party'...specifically Dex's, which explains why Sloane is being left behind or even worse being left to have an evening of bonding with his soon to be father-in-law, Tony and doesn't that end up being it's own adventure. Seriously, when someone tells you 'don't play air hockey with the man' it's probably wise to heed their advice...but after one stop to give his fiancee a very steamy surprise and a few drinks...like enough for even a Therian to get a good buzz, Sloane decides that a game or 12 of air hockey couldn't possibly be all that bad of an idea...lol!!! foolish man.

 

Meanwhile Dex is out with Ash, Cael, Hudson, Seb, Calvin & Hobbs and the rest of the gang dancing, eating booze soaked gummy bears and wearing gummy bear suits, having encounters with Wolf, avoiding hired thugs and just generally having a good time. 

 

I enjoyed everything about this story and basically smiled and laughed from start to finish. It was Dex and the members of THIRDS at their rowdy, raucous best and I loved seeing them all cut loose and yet, the still managed to save the day.

 

While the blurb says that you don't need to read this before reading the next book in the THIRDS series, I would definitely advise having read the THIRDS series before reading this one. This story's way more fun when you understand all the dynamics of the relationships and events that have led this this occasion.

 

'Gummy Bears & Grenades' is a wonderful warm up for whats coming next and soon...next month, in the lives of the members of THIRDS as they transition to the next phase of their story.

Halloween Bingo: Amateur sleuth
Deadly Gamble (A Charlie Parker Mystery #1) - Leslie Lenz,Connie Shelton

 

We're drowning in minutiae here.

And the solving of the mystery is not particularly exciting.

The couple parts that could have thrown a nice twist into the works were glossed over, on seemed to be added just because.

 

Maybe because she's an accountant, even though she works for a PI, and they're supposed highly detail oriented, right?

Geez, 2 cliches in a row.

 

Because they were mean?

Seriously?

 

I managed to get through it, but I'm reminded of one of the reasons I don't read a lot of mysteries.

Review: All the Birds in the Sky
All the Birds in the Sky - Charlie Jane Anders

I can’t seem to muster up any strong opinions about this book.  I enjoyed it fairly well while I read it, although I did get restless at times, particularly toward the end.  I could find things to nitpick about, but there wasn’t anything that drove me particularly nuts while I read it. 

 

This is just a big mixture of tropes from both the science fiction and fantasy genres and, maybe to a lesser extent, from the romance genre.  In the beginning, we're introduced to two young children who have grown into adulthood after the first third of the book.  Patricia has skills and interests that fall more into the fantasy realm whereas Laurence has skills and interests that fall more into the science fiction realm.  We see the individual paths each character takes and the effect their respective, and often conflicting, approaches have on their own lives and on the world itself.

 

I liked the main characters, and I liked the story pretty much.  I just don’t think this is one that’s going to stick with me much.  The ending was a little nebulous.  It didn’t wrap everything up in a neat bow, but that isn’t really what I’m talking about.  The things that happened at the end were those types of events that seem to make sense while you’re reading about them but, when you switch your brain back on afterwards, you realize they don’t stand up to scrutiny very well.  I’m giving the book 3.5 stars on the sites that accept half-star ratings, and rounding down to 3 on Goodreads.

 

Next Book

Slade House by David Mitchell.  I read the author’s Cloud Atlas a couple years ago and liked it quite a bit, but I haven’t yet read any of his other work.  I don’t know much about it, but I do vaguely remember seeing some reviews quite some time ago that made me want to read it and I grabbed it when the Kindle edition went on sale recently.  From what I remember, I think this is supposed to be a little creepy?  I thought it might be an appropriate October read.

Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts by Charlie Cochet Review
Beware of Geeks Bearing Gifts - Charlie Cochet

Julian “Quinn” Quintero, a gruff, tough Miami SWAT officer, has been injured on the job, and all he’s looking for is a little peace and quiet to recover—difficult to achieve with his large Cuban family. An adventure in picking up his prescriptions puts him in the path of his geeky, brownie-baking neighbor, Spencer Morgan. Spencer sweeps into Quinn’s life like a tropical storm of sunshine and rainbows. Not surprisingly, it’s chaos at first sight. Quinn’s in need of a little tender loving care, and Spencer decides he’s just the man for the job. Their very different lives might clash, but they might also find some common ground—and maybe more.

 

Review

 

I wanted this to be way better that it was. It has all the elements I like with a geeky hero and nieghbor but we get too much of Quinn and not enough of Spencer. Sigh.

It is sweet though until instead of building a relationship there is mean outsider twist that was annoying.
