Citywide (Five Boroughs) (Volume 6) - Santino Hassell

This short story collection is set in the series Five Boroughs.  These can probably be read as standalone novellas, but would better read in order with the series.  There are three books included, but for the review purposes we will look at the first story, Rerouted.

 

Chris is trying to move on with his life.  He is trying not to think about his past encounters with both Jace and Aiden.  The couple have a kind of open relationship that leaves room for someone like Chris.

 

Aiden & Jace have been trying to come up with a way to talk Chris into coming back and being with them more.  He has been distant lately, and this is a cause for some concern.  Is  there something wrong?

 

This was such a nice quick read.  Lovely characters I was excited to see again.  Also many visitors from the previous books in the series are present.  I like the fast pace of these books.  I also adore the banter and real world situations that feel like you are right there.  I am always feeling like I am home with this series.  I give this collection a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

Review for: Mistletoe Me, Baby (O'Connor Family #4) by Katie Reus
Mistletoe Me, Baby (O'Connor Family Series) (Volume 4) - Katie Reus

Nolan and Miranda have been friends for a long time but now circumstances help Nolan take the first step into moving their relationship to a brand new level, a level that he’d been hoping to get to for the longest time. 
This story had the perfect mix of sweetness, spicyness, and emotions to keep me turning the pages. I specially liked to read how family dynamics change from person to person however in the end if a family is close, they will be there for each other, supporting one another in times of need. I also liked the way Nolan continued helping Miranda even when she was too distracted to ask for his help. He truly was the perfect hero with not a flaw in sight. In short, I’d call this story a comfort read perfect for this time of year and I recommend it for anyone looking for a Holiday read. 

 

** I was gifted a copy of this book and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.**

In Three-Quarter Time by Pam Lecky
In Three-Quarter Time: A Short Story - Pam Lecky

So much happens in these few pages that I found myself wanting more. The characters were just starting to feel like friends when suddenly my time with them was over. What greater recommendation can I give than that?

Lecky gives readers a glimpse of life in Dublin during WWI, the excitement, the romance, the tragedy, the loss. There's a lot of emotion packed into this short story with the main character's sister suffering long-term illness, her brother enthusiastically volunteering to take his part in the glorious war, and the man she secretly loves hoping to find his fortune in America.

Did I say that I wish it was longer?

Ritual in Death by J.D. Robb
Ritual In Death - J.D. Robb

A glamorous party at Roarke Palace hotel is interrupted by a naked man covered in blood, wielding a knife and claiming he might've killed someone. Tracing his bloody footprints, Lieutenant Eve Dallas and her husband, the hotel's owner, find suite 606 filled with signs of ritualistic debauchery—complete with a dead body lying on a pentagram...


Too short to develop any real "meat" with a case that was rather easily solved, a cameo from one of the past cases, mentions of Satanism, a first suspect with an idiotic reasoning, and a marital quarrel between Eve and Roarke thrown into the mix for variety, I suppose.

Definitely nothing to write home about, but not bad to spend an hour with.
