What a great book to finish this year with!!!

 

 

I just love this series. Snow and Jude are my favorite couple. SO FAR!! I loved to read about their househunting. Who am I kidding, I loved everything about it!!

"You don't care what those people think. Don't give a shit what anyone might say. You just wanted to see me. And that is the hottest fucking thing."

~~ Jude to his man Snow.

I agree, Jude... :D

And yayyyy, Snow & Jude & Wallbanging!!! (No need to say more.)

Shiver by Jocelynn Drake & Rinda Elliott - My Thoughts
Shiver - Rinda Elliott,Jocelynn Drake

This book was a round-about rec in a way.  One of the romantic suspense novelists I follow on Twitter was quoted on a book blog about some of her fave reads and the 3rd book in this series was one of the ones she mentioned.  So, I went to check out the series and it hit a lot of my 'ooooh' buttons, so I went and picked up this first book.  

 

There are 4 men who are as close, if not closer, than brothers.  A millionaire club owner/businessman, a surgeon, a security company head and a chef.  This story is about the millionaire and what happens when he gets targeted by the bad guys over his latest property venture.  His buddy, the security company guy, sends him a bodyguard and the romance begins.  :)

 

It worked for me for the most part.  I enjoy the whole band of brothers thing and all the characters are bigger than life, which is fun for me.  It could be compared, I guess, to the Abi Roux Cut & Run books or SE Jakes' Tommy & Prophet series, but it's got a bit to go to live up to those faves of mine.  

 

The romance and sex is steamy hot and the falling in love stuff makes sense for the most part.  Although I did find that maybe, in certain tense situations, maybe the guys could have held off on the whoopee for a little bit?  

 

However... I did knock down my rating because this pair of authors, like many in the m/m genre, use the word SMIRK so often and think it's a hot and sexy expression.  OH. MY. GOD!  It's SO not.  It's smarmy and supercilious and obnoxious and it turns me right off and hauls me out of the story quickerthanthis.  UGH, I hate it.  In my uneducated opinion, I they use it in the hopes of it coming across as uber masculine.  Anyway, if I were the editor, I'd be raising hell.  

 

So, I will be adding the others to the TBR pile and hope that the word is used much, much less.

Walking on Thin Ice
Walking on Thin Ice - Jocelynn Drake A certain Gallic Cheesy Elf (who is out of control in the best way!) gifted this book to me today, so I am going to give it a read right the frak now. :)

Thank you, GCE!!!! <3<br/>
------Review--------
This story isn't at all what I expected (in all the best ways) from reading the first chapter. At first, I was thinking I was going to be reading yet another rich, spoiled guy who can't take no for an answer and a more modest guy who gives in just because it is easier. That is not what I got (#ThankTheElves).

I wasn't sure I was going to like Spenser, but I really did! He was stuck trying to do the right thing for his family and the family business, by sacrificing his own happiness. All because his grandfather was a bigoted ass. The rest of his family was fantastic, though. Loved them.

And Evan, who is an artist and a musician, is ready to settle down. One night hookups just aren't satisfying at all. I loved how he told Spenser what he was willing to accept and what he wasn't.

And together, they set my Kindle on fire. LOVED.

Thanks again, GCE, for the gift of this delightful Christmas story. I loved it. :)

Review: Walking on Thin Ice by Jocelynn Drake
Walking on Thin Ice - Jocelynn Drake

*4.5 "Tomorrow" stars*

Very enjoyable and hot story!! Could've read a full length novel about Evan and Spenser.

Spenser and Evan meet at a club and Spenser wants to hook-up with him. Evan just doesn't want to do one-night-stands any longer so he says no. Spenser is not used to saying no to, this big important rich guy.

 

 

Evan agrees to accompany Spenser to his family home for the Christmas holidays. I loved Spenser's loving family. It becomes clear why Spenser is withdrawn and sad at times. It is not because of his family but everything to do with his extended family. Spenser feels the responsibility to keep his family happy at the expense of his "coming-out" and hapiness.

“I just want you.”

"You are worth tomorrow and you are so worth all my tomorrows."



Great sexy story with great characters by Jocelynn Drake. She has not disappointed me so far!!!
