Red Dirt Heart (Red Dirt Heart #1)
Red Dirt Heart - N.R. Walker

I like this! It was standard, as far as M/M goes, but has the distinction of being set in the Outback. Charlie and Travis were fun, and it was nice to see Travis pull Charles out of his shell and self-loathing. I really liked Ma and George, too. (Though I did get a little annoyed with the chapter headers, gotta be honest.)

 

This is a short read though, barely longer than novella length, so we don't get to see much of the other workers on the ranch, who are basically just there as set dressing. A lot of the relationship development between Charlie and Travis was set in the bedroom too, and after one-and-a-half standard sex scenes, I just started skipping them altogether. There was still enough development outside the bedroom for me to appreciate why they're clearly good together, so that was good.

 

The next one looks longer, so hopefully it'll have more meat on its bones. And be better formatted. The formatting for this book was all over the place. It though Ch 6 was Ch 8, for instance, and thought the book was complete when I was still at 70%.

A brooding covert operative and a spunky CIA agent discover a burning passion in the next installment of Julie Ann Walker's red-hot BKI series

 

Dagan Zoelner has made three huge mistakes
The first two left blood on his hands.

The third left him wondering...what if? What if he had told the woman of his dreams how he felt before his world fell apart?

 

Spitfire CIA agent Chelsea Duvall has always had a thing for bossy, brooding Dagan. It's just as well that he's never given her a second look, since she carries a combustible secret about his past that threatens to torch their lives...

DNF’d this one at pg. 169 about 47%.

 

We’ve met Chelsea and Dagan in previous books. They have had this unspoken attraction to each other for years and now they are getting their story.

 

Fuel For Fire just isn’t pulling me in nor is it keeping my interest like, so many others in the series have. I’m not getting that all consuming pull or suspense to keep me interested.

 

I have really enjoyed and liked many of the Black Knights Inc. series…up until now. This wasn’t what I was expecting for Dagan and Chelsea. I just didn’t care for the writing direction. We are inundated with pop culture references. Also with memories from Chelsea; where every sentence she thinks (utters) about her dad, her mom, her mom and dad, and on and on it went. It made it hard to stay connect and focus on what was actually happening. The books just aren’t what they use to be when the series started. We are close to the the end of the series and Full For Fire is the third to the last book in the series; which is wrapping up this long standing storyline on finding out who Spider is.

 

What made me stop and say no more was Chelsea’s BIG SECRET that she has kept for years that has something to do about Afghanistan and why Dagan was fired from the CIA. I’m not sure why she’s kept it, but at the beginning when it all happened it was because she was thinking about herself, her mom, and their family home. Now well she wants to tell him this secret before they go further aka try for a relationship. When she tries to tell Dagan, he says not now – all I want is you naked. I’ve waited so long to have you in my arms and all I want is you. So what does she do? She resigns herself to having this one time sexy fling with him by saying it’s ok; because she’s giving him what he wants; because last time she thought all about herself and her mother first. AHHHH!!!! This secret she knows will change things. Who knows how or what it really is, but to sleep with him before telling him. NOOOO!!! I threw my hands in the air, shook my head, yelled, and almost threw the book. I closed it at that point and said no more. I can’t keep reading. So here we are DNFing a book in the Black Knights Inc. series. I had some other issues, but this was the main issue that had me throwing in the towel.

 

Fuel For Fire was not the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you.

On Davis Row By N.R. Walker 99 cents!
On Davis Row - N.R. Walker

Nearing the end of a suspended jail sentence should unlock a brighter future for CJ Davis, only the chip on his shoulder is as hard to shift as his bad reputation. Born into a family of career criminals who live down Davis Road, an address the cops have dubbed Davis Row, his name alone is like a rap sheet that makes optimism impossible.


Brand-new parole officer Noah Huxley is determined to see the good in men like CJ. After all, he knows firsthand that bad things can happen to good people. His colleagues mock his doe-eyed optimism, but Noah soon sees CJ’s bad attitude and bravado are weapons he uses to keep people at a distance.


Both men know one simple mistake can change a life forever. At first glance, they might seem to be polar opposites. Yet underneath, they're not that different at all.

THE FOREVER LONG ROAD OF OLAN WALKER by Steve Vernon, narrated by Adam Gold
The Forever Long Road of Olan Walker - Steve Vernon,Adam Gold

THE FOREVER LONG ROAD OF OLAN WALKER is a unique short story of a conjure man.

 

On the chain gang in Alabama, life is not good. The guards have the prisoners at their disposal and they're not afraid to remind the prisoners of that at every opportunity. But one prisoner is different. He's a conjure man. He can heal you, he can kill you, and he doesn't seem to care which.

 

I enjoyed the narrative style of this story and I enjoyed the narrator, I just needed MORE. This is something I rarely say, because I knew this was a short story going in. But this time around, even though this short tale had a definitive ending, I felt like this was just the beginning, (or maybe the ending?) of a vast, epic tale. I feel like I'm missing out on that larger story.

 

That said, I am looking forward to reading more from this author because I enjoyed his style and humor a great deal. When describing how skinny Olan was, he said "...as lean as a dog in Lent." It's a vivid and funny writing style which brought Joe Lansdale's work to mind.

 

Recommended!
