Risk Taker (Mixed Messages, #3) by Lily Morton 4 Stars!
Risk Taker - Lily Morton

Being in love with your best friend is hard.

Henry’s the odd man out. All his friends are settling down, and his reputation as the Hook-Up King of London seems more like a curse than a blessing these days. Especially when it keeps photojournalist Ivo, his best friend and the brilliant man he’s loved since they were fifteen, at arm’s length. But that’s where Ivo wants him, right? Putting aside his feelings, Henry decides to give up casual sex and look for the real deal. After all, he has no chance with Ivo - or does he?

Henry is everything to Ivo. Best friend, soul mate, the one person who has never let him down. The one person he is loyal to above everything and everyone. But Henry’s in a box marked best friend and that’s where Ivo’s kept him for nearly twenty years, despite steadily falling in love with the gentle man. And besides, why would Henry want to date Ivo? Burned out and injured, he’s the walking embodiment of damaged.

Distance has helped Henry and Ivo keep a lid on their attraction, but when they find themselves in the same city for a change—Ivo hurt and needing assistance, and Henry more than willing to provide it—the two best friends grow closer than ever, forcing a realization, and a decision. Risk their friendship for their hearts? Or can they have both?

From the bestselling author of Rule Breaker and Deal Maker comes a tender love story about two best friends who are perfect for each other, and always have been - if only they knew it.

 

Review

 

I think that both Ivo and Henry was powerfully depicted in this friends to lovers, loved you forever romance.

Henry is the bee's knees in all his bookworm care taking sexy ginger self. Ivo is pretty damaged and afraid. But all their actions make sense to me so while I might not have like how Ivo processed his feelings all the time, I got it. Plus, he gets therapy which I always like to see with characters who are this wounded.

The love between these heroes is tangible and we get to enjoy the banter and the ache as well as the cast from the series as well as a great dog. Good stuff!

Deal Maker (Mixed Messages, #2) by Lily Morton 4 Star Review!!
Deal Maker - Lily Morton

Sometimes your mouth makes deals that your heart can’t honour.

Jude is a highly successful model, but a very reluctant one. His life is full of casual hook-ups with pretty men in glamorous locations, but it’s still empty. However, circumstances decreed a long time ago that this was his path, so he’s resolutely stayed on it and accepted his fate with good grace. He made a deal with himself and his hook-ups. Get in, get out and no ties with anyone.

However, an accident at home one night leads to him making a new deal and accepting the offer of help from an unlikely source. It leads to an unexpected summer of falling in love with a larger than life man and his child.

But by the end of the summer his reasons for not staying are still valid. Will he turn away? Can he?

Asa is a talented actor who has spent time away from the scene to look after his son. But now he’s back, and the last thing he needs are complications from the gorgeous man who is staying with him. Scarred from too many betrayals, he has no intention of forming a lasting tie with anyone. However, he can’t resist the beautiful man with secrets, and to his horror he develops feelings.

But a deal’s a deal and they said it was just for the summer. What can Asa do with a man who has forever in his eyes and goodbye on his lips?

 

Review

 

A wonderful emotionial romance. Jude and Asa resist falling in love but fall they do and it is a joy.

Asa is quick to judge because of his past and this makes him pretty spiky but Jude is just to too lush and really sweet. We have a cool kid in the mix here too which raises the stakes a bit.

Wet get to know each hero as they get to know each and that is the most fun. The circle of friends is here and the banter makes this book very fun.

The HEA is epic and well earned. Enjoy!

4 Star Trust
Lily's Trust (Black Ridge Wolf Pack #5) - Lilli Carlisle

 

Omega’s choose their mates and Lily Chose Jensgar, but the general refused her, forcing her to leave the pack she adopted. Unable to stand the pitying glances and hushed comments, she flees to the forest to live as a wolf. She’s shocked when Jensgar comes for her and slowly convinces her to trust him again, but the woods holds secrets and danger and when Jengar’s life is threatened Lily makes the ultimate sacrifice.

 

This romance is an emotional and quite turbulent read with solid, captivating characters that draws readers in and refuses to let go. The poignant romance between Jensgar and Lily is sweet and full of surprises that changes everything and builds thrilling suspense throughout the story. This fast paced story is non-stop excitement and feelings with stunning twists and is further enhanced by the appearance of gods and a curse. While on the short side, this romance captures the heart, causes a few tears and is a full story in the Black Ridge Wolf Pack.

A Lily Among Thorns
A Lily Among Thorns - Rose Lerner

This had a slow start for me. Serena fell in love with one of her father's footmen. She then opted to run away and join a brothel becoming a well known courtesan. Solomon visits the brothel with his "friends" and gives Serena his quarterly allowance which allows her a chance at a new life.
I did think Serena was cold and harsh at times. I also thought Solomon was maybe too perfect (he sews! he cooks! he plays!). However, I could see them together and I thought they fit. I liked the spy subplot and the secondary love story with Rene and Elijah. I would have liked a little more about Rene/Elijah. And also- did anything happen to Serena's father?
For Ripped Bodice Bingo- on the page atheist

The Black Lily (Tales of the Black Lily) - Juliette Cross

 

The threat the Varis family poses to the humans they rule over grows stronger every day and Arabelle’s resolve to overthrow the vampire monarchy grows as well. Now is the perfect time to ignite the underground resistance’s rebellion, by attending the prince’s blood ball and killing him. But Prince Marius could be more than the Prince Charming he appears to be if he listens and understands the truth.

 

This is the first book in fascinating and different vampire world that readers can really sink their teeth into. The chemistry between Arabelle and Marius has sparks flying in every direction from every page of this fiery and volatile romance that provides readers with a very entertaining mix of passion, laughter and adventure. The characters are strong, the emotional turmoil fits the story and characters so well that readers really feel as if they know and understand both sides of the conflict. The heroine is quite saucy and spirited while the hero is an arrogant male who soon turns into a real prince and readers just have to sigh in pleasure.

 

The wonderful setting adds just the right atmosphere to the story to make it believable and readers find that the story ‘feels right’ which makes it delightfully exciting and quite thrilling as they get caught up in the suspense and action of this story. The clever ‘Cinderella’ fairy tale retelling makes this vampire romance, one that readers will want to visit over and over again.
