No Earls Allowed (The Survivors #2) by Shana Galen~ 4 of 5 stars
No Earls Allowed (The Survivors) - Shana Galen

Neil is sent on a new mission: bring Lady Juliana back home after she’s spent months away taking care of orphan children. What was supposed to be an in-and-out kind of mission turned out to be the life changing event that neither Neil nor Lady Juliana had planned on. 

The story was a riot and a half. Neil is the kind of man that may seem reserved but in reality is pretty laid-back. I liked that he knew what to do, when to do it, and best way to go about facing a new challenge. Even though Juliana was pretty inexperienced in everything she set her mind to, she was no simpleton and faced everything with as much mettle as she could muster.

The plot itself was unpredictable and unique. I mean, I don't think I've read about ladies accepting rats for pets of their children (ee-ew, eewww, EEEWWWW!). The children were sweet and good-natured, even those that rebelled and may had caused some trouble because of their circumstances showed great character. I for one don't like reading much about children but when they are written with as much heart and wit then I will take them any time! Juliana and Neil simmered in passion for each other but didn't take their relationship to the next level until they knew for sure that's what they both wanted. And when it happened it was sublime, real, and oh, so sweet. I always complain about authors creating this far-fetched, earth-shattering event when the couple makes love for the first time because although nice to read, is it really like that in real life? I thought the author did a great job here giving me a more realistic, couple-in-love moment. 
I also loved that all the survivors made an appearance. We dug farther into the lives of some of them and we get to see more of Ewan, my boyfriend from the first book-- I mean the hero from the first book in the series. The story had a villain that didn't get to play much of a villain however his presence gave the survivors plenty to do and caused Juliana lots of headaches and heartaches. If anything I would have liked Juliana's growth to be more palpable but it was more on paper than in her character. All in all it was a great read that left me wanting more. 

** 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. **

Not my favorite run of Deadpool
Despicable Deadpool (2017-) #294 - Gerry Duggan,Scott Koblish,Mike Hawthorne

But when it steers clear of Cap, it's quite good.   That little twist at the end, that despair, shows that Deadpool has some feelings, and in the end, I like when it's not just one joke after another but has some emotional content.

Marvel keeps reminding me that it's a thing, and that I'm mad at them for that whole thing.

Enough, Marvel
Avengers (2016-) #680 - Al Ewing,Mark Waid,Jim Zub,Kim Jacinto,Mark Brooks

I'm enjoying this, but a weekly, huge event is a little overwhelming given that it goes on for three months. 

 

Earth is a pawn in an interstellar battle.   But for serious, you're gonna play human checkers for three months?   Ugh, Marvel, kinda lame.   So knocking off one star, because I'm not that annoyed - yet.
