So much smoking!
Partners - Nora Roberts,Tanya Eby Partners - Nora Roberts,Tanya Eby

The book was written in 1985 so the newspaper has typewriters and copy boys and there are no mobile phones, it felt almost like a different world! Laurel Armand and Matthew Bates work together in New Orleans (very pre-Catriona!) in a newspaper. Matthew has been attracted to her for years but doesn't know how to approach her. The two of them are drawn into a mystery when a woman asks the right questions about a murder and when letters received by the dead woman go missing they know they're onto something.

I did guess the who of the murderer quite early on but the journey was quite enjoyable.  It was interesting to see the changes and familiar themes from Nora Roberts.

Shelter (Shifters and Partners #7) by Hollis Shiloh Review
Shelter (shifters and partners Book 7) - Hollis Shiloh

It's only a dog, the FBI agents think when they descend on the drug lord's home. Only a dog, chained in the back yard, half starved and with almost glowing eyes it's so filled with rage and fear.

It isn't till they get closer that someone says, "That looks like a wolf."

 

Review

 

This is a sweet short story about an older FBI agent and a traumatized wolf shifter. It is very slow burn ending really with the hint of a sexual relationship. The tone of the book is very removed but it is still engaging.

BLOG TOUR, REVIEW & #GIVEAWAY - It Could Happen by Mia Kerick
It Could Happen - Mia Kerick

It Could Happen tells the story of three friends, a misfit triad who really, according to High School's rules, shouldn't have anything to do with each other. You have Henry, the jock, who above all else is a pleaser. You have Brody, an adrenaline junkie/rich boy. And then there is Danny, emo dude with bad taste in men.

NOW, there is a hint at the beginning that Henry is having 'thoughts' about these friends of his, but he doesn't say anything as he doesn't want to upset the status quo. Brody is the one who never thought of them as anything other than friends, but once he makes his mind up, he's willing to give it a go. And Danny - Danny is the one they do it for, to save him from himself and his inability to stay away from people that are 'bad' for him. However, he is usually the first one to disappear, even though he is the only one who was actually "out". Henry and Brody weren't out, in Brody's case they didn't even consider that they liked males that way, but Brody doesn't have any issues with showing public affection. It is Brody though who ends up alone as Henry deals with a personal crisis, and Danny is of the opinion that if Henry doesn't want you, neither do I.

The premise of this story is a good one, and one that I thought I would thoroughly enjoy. I think the thing that detracted it for me was the lack of connection or why are they doing this with the main characters. Apart from looking after Danny, there seemed to be no other reason, really. And, I'm afraid to say, the second thing for me was the style of writing. For me, Brody's was the only clear 'voice', whilst Henry with his My Life just became annoying. Danny you didn't really hear much from, apart from a few lines of beautifully written poetry. On the whole, I did enjoy this book, but it felt a tad disjointed to me. A lack of cohesion between the main characters.

If you are looking for a three-way M/M/M story, and you want something that is a bit different, then I heartily recommend you give this one a go.

* A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and the comments here are my honest opinion. *

4 solid stars
We Belong Together - Megan Slayer
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian,I was gifted my copy of this book. Sarah broke Dare's heart when she didn't go with him when he left for Hollywood 17 years ago. But he never stopped loving her, and now, a trip to Vegas bring Dare and Sarah together,and Dare is determined to not let her go again. But Dare doesn't come alone, he brings Liam, his husband. And Dare want both Liam AND Sarah. I wasn't sure I was going to like this book in the beginning and here's why. Dare and Liam corral Sarah, for want of a better word. They almost gang up on her. There is very little discussion about what will happen once all three of them get to the hotel room. Sarah DID consent, but I really didn't like how it all went down. But after that ?? The guys redeem themselves in wanting to go slow with Sarah. Yes that first time with the three of them was rushed, and hurried but amazing, and now they realise they have to take the foot off the accelerator and slow down or Sarah will reject them both. But once Sarah makes her mind up to run with this, even if it shatters her heart, she's all in and the guys don't stand a chance! I loved that, somehow, I missed what it says in the blurb about Dare and Liam being married. Because that came as a shock when it was mentioned in the book! I had to double back, to see if I missed something! I liked how Sarah's past caught up with her. No, not liked. That's not the right word, when you read the book, you'll see what I mean. It was well written, and did not go down how I expected it to. Sarah's secret wasn't hard to guess, once you do the maths, but I loved that Liam got it way before Dare had to be told. Talk of domestic violence, murder, rape and stalking but none of it described in any great detail. Hot and steamy in places, with MMF, MF, and MM scenes. Emotional and heart breaking in others. 4 solid stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
