Synopsis:

 

Is this the beginning of the end? With the biggest court case the racing world has ever seen coming to an end Elliott and Kyle can start rebuilding their lives. Kyle stood by his new husband in sickness and in health, for better, for worse and did not expect to get left behind as Elliott buys a struggling racing team and devotes all his time and attention to turning it into a success. Their marriage is put to the test as the two men both live and work away from each other, causing tensions to rise and tempers to flare. Will absence make the heart grow fonder or is this a case of out of sight, out of mind? Join Kyle and Elliott for their newest adventures in racing, trust, and passion.

 

 

Excerpt:

 

But then the window frame rattles and my heart explodes, piercing the expanding bubble that has contained my tears. The noise of Kyle’s engine doesn’t disappear into the distance straight away; instead, it reverberates through the room for longer than it should. I still have time to dash to the door and call him back. I implore myself, but I’m rooted to the spot, too fragile to risk further shattering my heart. It’s only when the roar of the engine begins to fade that I crumple in a ball. I draw my knees up to my chin, struggling to dull the searing agony in my chest as the unhappiness, which has been building over the last few months, finally spills free. I give way as the barriers I protected myself with before Kyle and I met won’t rebuild fast enough. My flimsy protection comes crashing down, and I howl in a voice that is not mine because he took me at my word and left when all I wanted was for him to tell me I was wrong and hold me.

Speeding back
The Flash, Vol. 6: Ignition - Geoff Johns,Alberto Dose,Howard Porter,John Livesay

Wally West doesn't remember who he's been, and that might be a good thing - after the events of the previous trade, his wife isn't feeling too kidly disposed toward the Flash. She blames him for the trauma of the last book.

And Wally's got a mundane job working on cars for the police station. But he knows there's something off. Like how occasionally, the world seems to go into slow motion, letting him help people or stop bad guys.

As he slowly pieces together his past, he finds that some other people were faster on the uptake - and that he's not sure he even wants to accept who and what he was because of his wife.

It's a great, somewhat slow and definitely emotional volume. Great for anyone who liked the Wally West of old (aka back when sad and dark wasn't the base state for every superhero in DC's stable.)

Review: Ignition: An Educator's Journey by Michelle Arrose
Ignition: An Educator's Journey - Michelle Arrose

This book follows protagonist Karen's journey as she embarks on her first teaching role. She is assigned to a rather challenging class of students, and we see how the emotional struggle to engage her students affects her relationships with her husband and fellow teachers. This novella explores the difficulty that teachers face when trying to educate non-conforming students.

The author has done something very clever with this book that I've not seen before - the reader gets to choose the ending they would prefer, from a choice of three. Adding these alternate final chapters really made me consider how I wanted to story to end and my reasons for choosing the conclusion I did. This is such a unique selling point.

I enjoyed reading this story, but I didn't find any of the characters very likeable. Karen was very emotional throughout and I was uncomfortable with the way she was so dependent on husband Billy. She appeared to be such a weak character that I found her rather annoying. She had such a lack of confidence and self-esteem that I found myself questioning her relationship with Billy. He seemed very controlling and she was too easily pacified by his words and simply by being in his arms. Perhaps if the story was longer that relationship could be explored further.

The story flows quite well and the writing style is easy to follow. There are some issues with punctuation and wording (my pet peeve) but readers shouldn't find that this devalues the plot. 
There are a couple of sex scenes that I don't really feel are needed as they're very short and add nothing to the story. If they were more drawn out, readers might find that they build on Karen and Billy's relationship and/or find them erotic.

Summary:
An interesting short story with a unique twist. An enjoyable easy read that shows potential. Gives insight into the darker side of education. In some ways I wish this was a longer book as I'd like to have got to know more about the characters and what makes them tick. 3.5/5.
