It Was Rushed and I Wanted More
Heart of the Storm (Undertow) - Michael Buckley

3.5 stars
A great series with a rushed ending.
I really enjoyed tis YA series. The fresh look at merpeople and sea creatures was really cool and kept me coming back for more. The character details alone are worth the read. They are believable, functional, and awesome. Mr. Buckley has a wonderful imagination. He also developed some shameful characters that you just love to hate, really love to hate ! LOL
My problems with the book was the rushed pacing. Everything was happening at a semi regular paced then bam, bam, bam, we were at the end. The new characters just never got developed enough and they were so amazing. I loved Husk, he was just getting so interesting and then it ended with him not fully finished for me. I had the same issue with Fantom, why did he just disappear in the book ? It felt like there was a hole. I fell like these side characters need their own book I liked them better than the MCand we got too much of her and not enough of them.

Gentle
Check My Heart - Christi Barth

Kurt met Lisette while she was working with this dying brother.  When they meet again, she brings back memories of that time in his life.  She is looking for work with his team, and he is not up to seeing her everyday.

 

Lisette just wants to find a job in her new field.  Being a nurse is fulfilling, but working with terminally ill patients has a cost.  She is hoping to get into a new field, helping heal those she can.  Kurt has always been attractive to her.  Under such sad circumstances can they learn to love where they have a future?

 

This story was as sad as it was sweet.  The genuine love felt for a family member can be very strong and this felt very real and sincere.  I was touched by the gentle way the author had it brought out in the book.  I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws Up!

Going Gets Hot (Sapphire Falls; My Country Heart #4) by Rachelle Ayala
Going Gets Hot (Sapphire Falls; My Country Heart #4) - Rachelle Ayala

 

 

Stories like these are what keeps the dream alive. That hope of happily ever after existing around the corner from loneliness and down the street from heartache. Amber and Chad prove that there's someone out there for even the most awkward of souls. Trust in your heart, be true to yourself and anything is possible, if you believe. With Going Gets Hot, Rachelle Ayala blended her charming voice and positive outlook, with the heart of Sapphire Falls and had everything coming up roses. Another great asset to an already winning series.

From the Cradle by Michelle Knight
From the Cradle (The Submissive Heart Book 3) - Michelle Knight

So, I finished this a while ago. Several weeks ago. I couldn't figure out where to start the review.

 

IN THE PREFACE:

 

So far, so good. Book 1, "The Companion," tackled the underlying dynamics of a BDSM relationship. Book 2, "The Reluctant Leader, " took on the censorship and legal issues and introduced the dominant side of the D/s dynamic. Now, book 3 takes you through another aspect of BDSM relationships that never crosses many people's minds.

 

It seems that whenever people talking about the subject of BDSM relationships, they somehow forget that the little woed, "relationship," is part of the sentence.

 

In the first book we were introduced to Mark and Susan (later known also as simply "L," the name given to her by her master). Mark had a scarred past and Susan needed someone to help guide her towards building a life where she would grow as a person she was com for table being. Together they entered in a BDSM relationship. The first book was focused on their budding love aND partnership . This book we get their "happily ever after," a look at what happens when their relationship buds into more than bargained for when they began their lives together.

 

I did not foresee any of the events in this book happening to Mark and L. I did enjoy the ride though. I never once thought of what it would be like for a couple who had a BDSM relationship to juggle the same curveballs that traditional couples experience. 

 

After reading this I see so many similarities between what people consider to be normal relationships and that of a couple practising a BDSM lifestyle. When it comes to the topic of BDSM people's minds automatically think of violent, leather dressed men beating their females until they experience earth moving painful orgasms. That's not what you get with this book. What you get is a couple being a bit more honest with themselves about where they stand I their relationship and embracing their roles.

 

What was all his dominance actually worth in a sphere where he didn't have any authority? How could he control anything when it wasn't his hands on the steering wheel?

 

I completely understand why erotic BDSM literature is popular. In people's minds it is an adventure on the wildside. Those books give people wrong impressions though, and sometimes bad ideas and stereotypes. I like that the author of this, Michelle Knight, wrote a realistic story. I have found this entire series to be very eye opening on the subject. This is very well written and obviously well researched and told from personal life experiences. Compared to the first two books this feels to be written with more emotion included in the story. Knight skills as a writer have really grown. This is not erotic fiction but is definitely intended for adults.
