Nope and no no no no !
Dad's Best Friend - Candy Stone

I never realised that so many things can be so wrong in just a 24 page story... damn... wish I never knew.

 

So... the heroine gets dumped by her boyfriend whom she took for granted then we jump to several weeks later when she's going on a small vacation and her car breaks down in the mountains so the guy who comes to pick her up along with her car is an overweight stereotype of a man and of course, a rapist from whom she is saved by the man she calls uncle Jimmy who is not her uncle and she practically forces her dad's best friend to fuck her. Then the ending:

 

They never tell her dad, this never meant anything to them besides a good fuck, he marries and never tells his wife, the heroine marries and divorces and still receives regular sex visits from despite him still being fucking married. And yes, that is all said in the last couple of sentences.

(spoiler show)

 

If I would rant on everything that is wrong with this story I would write three times the length of this actual story so I'll keep it simple and short.

 

1. This book isn't romance, it's an episode of a sexual encounter that seems quite forced on the older man.

 

2. This short story makes no fucking sense! She forgot her dad's best friend in life also has a cabin near the place she wants to go on a vacation to despite the fact she spent half of her childhood there. And she gets into a car with a man who clearly insinuates he wants to have sex with her and then she is so damn surprised when he actually tries.

 

3. Jimmy, her dad's best friend and our hero in this story, is trying really hard to resist this woman because he says it isn't right and she just keeps on going, jumping into his bed and masturbating, getting outside naked and stretching before going swimming, taking his fingers and dipping them into her private parts and so on until he actually gives in and they fuck for one night.

 

4. First Jimmy keeps on saying no and resisting and running away from her then when he snaps and wants her she runs away screaming no and then she returns and seduces him again. What in the actual fuck? Why am I even reading this argh !

 

5. The ending, if the story didn't get you miserable then this ending surely will. Clustered in a few last sentences you realise they remain assholes for the entirety of their lives. Oh I am so happy having to read this, truly my life now is oh so much richer than it was an hour ago.

 

 

Conclusion !

 

Don't be a fucking asshole in life and maybe better things will happen to you.

The Kidnapped King: MM BDSM Erotic Romance (Royal Liaisons Book 1)
The Kidnapped King: MM BDSM Erotic Roman... The Kidnapped King: MM BDSM Erotic Romance (Royal Liaisons Book 1) - Isla Sinclair It was a fast and entertaining read.

Okay, so the 'kidnapping' in the book took less than 1/4 of book to resolve, but the world building done by the author was intriguing if a little lighter than most. However, given the length of the book it was decent.

The characters were intriguing, although I would have liked a little bit more back story on both the Anton and Nerissa, the co-ruling King and Queen who were elected, not married. There's a lot of potential for a really amazing world here.

And the romance element? Oooooh child, it was smoking hot!

Good and bad
Monster: Part One (The Monster Series Book 1) - Evangeline Lee

This is supposed to be the first novella out of three that were supposed to be released in the span of four weeks time but for the life of me I cannot seem to find others from this series but this one so I will only review what I have on my Kindle and what I was able to read.

 

This novella is a contemporary mystery/crime, adult erotic romance with a dark edge novella which plays around with abduction and rape as lightly as it would be dangling rope in front of kittens.

 

I think that from my point of view this story held a lot of promise in the first half but then it came undone in the second half when the storyline pretty much fell apart and the characters became either non-existent in personality or overly sex driven to the literal point of becoming a psychopath.

 

 

 

"I wanted to show her that her high and mighty superiority, her degrees and diplomas, her privileged existence, her sense of security, was a façade. I was going to breach the fortress that was her privacy. I was going to leave my mark on her life like a dog pissing to mark his territory, and one day soon, I was going be in her bed fucking her brains out."

 

 

All this said in that one first sentence would be perfectly understandable in this kind of a story if the female protagonist Mina ever did anything of the sorts. She didn't. She is barely present in this novella. She is simply there for the real main character Mikhail to obsess about after meeting her just once. Yes, one look at the woman and our main ex marine, ex special ops, enhanced ex soldier is completely taken with her. I wouldn't mind it so much if Mina was at least interesting or different from a horde of good looking women out there.

 

That was my first complaint. I didn't find them believable as a couple at all. Maybe this is due to the shortness of the story. So I won't judge too harshly because of that.

 

But the second complaint I have that even with the story being so short, some things make no sense whatsoever.

Example: Mikhail is an enhanced soldier who is on the run from a government that created him and now wants him dead so he assumed a different identity. He gets captured by the FBI because of some mafia involvement and when in custody he meets a doctor who was present at the early stages of the Program when he was turned into the enhanced soldier. And for no apparent reason or any other connection, previous or more personal, this doctor helps him in every way possible, even with his escape plan and with providing him the address of his student Mina. It's just not believabe. It took me out of the story. There is no connection or friendship between them. There is no reason for that doctor to risk his career and life to help a man like Mikhail.

(spoiler show)

 

There were a couple of passages/sentences that I liked very much, that were what I thought this whole story would be like.

 

 

"Nothing like making a woman orgasm to point out how they were creatures of the flesh just as much as men.
Bring her down to my level."

 

 

"Revenge is cleansing. It's the only way to move forward because it sets things right. Civilization is this thin veneer that overlays the beast beneath it, hiding its true nature."

 

 

All in all, I think this was a good novella to pass the time and interesting enough to make me pick up the second one in the series (if I had one).

 

If only it had been a little longer and more consistent and provided us with more characters' personality so I would care more about what happens with the protagonists I would certainly give it more stars as I would be more invested.

Diva and the Frat Boy (Men of Holsum College, #2) by Daisy Harris Review
Diva and the Frat Boy - Daisy Harris

Nathaniel Reece is savvy and fierce and wouldn’t give boring-ass Greg Sanders the time of day, except Greg is the president of a fraternity Nathaniel wants to join. But once Nathaniel gets a taste of the ferocity under Greg’s cool exterior, he can’t stop himself from trying to lure the uptight frat brother out of his shell. The face of gay life on campus and a crusader heading off to law school, Greg doesn’t see any problem with seducing the flamboyant and exciting Nathaniel. But that’s before he finds out his fraternity brothers are refusing Nathaniel's pledge bid. Greg’s athletic and masculine and has never had to deal with the censure of his friends or the odd looks of strangers, but if he’s going to be what Nathaniel needs, he’ll have to be comfortable not just being out, but also standing out.

 

Review

I like much of this romance. I love that Greg, the more conservative hero, has a big ole crush on Nathaniel. I like that they are both out and have come to terms with who they are. 

We don't get as much character development as I would like. Greg is particularly sketched with sparse details of family or his basketball life. His journey is around the kinds of homophobia within the gay community and his role in being a bystander in too many situations. He has some movement on these issues but it would have been a richer book if there was more. 

The main conflict is the kind of opposites attract and privilege that comes from being straight passing but there are racial and class tensions that are really not fully explored. 

Nathaniel has his own journey and while we do know more about him in terms of family and other issues, we could know much more.

I believe they like each other but deep love needs a bit more than this book gives. There is a forever and forever declaration to all of these books that needs to be more earned but it was a nice read none the less and I liked these characters through out the whole series, all of which but Hunter's book, I bought.

College Boys (Men of Holsum College #1) by Daisy Harris Review
College Boys / Diva and the Frat Boy - Daisy Harris

When soccer star Chris Fischer moves next door to an openly gay classmate, he doesn't realize the wall between their rooms will be so thin he'll hear his neighbor's every move. But soon he and Peter become friends, and Chris is intrigued—imagining what happens on the other side of the wall. Active on the Queer Student Council, Peter Cohen wishes he wasn't so damn hot for his straight neighbor. He can't tell if Chris is flirting or in denial or what, but Chris's innocent overtures lure Peter into flirtation that throws his world into chaos. Peter doesn't want to date a closet case, but he desperately, passionately wants Chris. Soon Chris must choose whether to run away from his new feelings or embrace a relationship with the guy he loves. And Peter must decide if he can give his heart to a guy who hasn't yet figured it all out.

 

Review

 

 

This is a hot and sweet romance. It is a great tale of falling in love and takes particular care with showing how someone comes to understand their sexuality varies and there is no one correct way.

 

We get to see Chris' process while Peter supports him. There is a sweetness to this romance and you will believe in how in love they are.

 

Peter is a great character and we could have spent more time with him outside his relationship and relationship angst. Chris is a great guy as well.

 

I love the message of finding community in the book.

 

A nice start to a new adult series.
