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.

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**

Jupiter's Shadow (Smoky Mountain Wolves #1) by TL Reeve
Jupiter's Shadow - TL Reeve

Jupiter's Shadow is the first book in the Smoky Mountain Wolves series, and if this one is anything to go by, this series is going to be brilliant!

We start off with Jupiter having her thirty-second birthday. Her dad takes the opportunity to tell his daughter - and the rest of the pack - that Jupiter now has five potential mates to choose from, and a month in which to do it. Although pretty 'miffed' to start with, Jupiter soon realises that they all have bigger problems to deal with.

This is an excellent start to the series, and I look forward to the fleshing out of the world, pack politics, and jobs, that usually follows on. With each book you tend to learn a bit more about the world, which in turn draws you in more as a series progresses. Each of the five men have very distinct personalities, which made it easy to remember which one was which when you were reading.

Very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more, both in this series and also by TL Reeve. Definitely recommended by me.

not for me.
Dangerous Interference - BJ Wane
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian. Alena goes to Blue Springs, Maine, because that's where her sister was last seen and the disappearance investigation has drawn to a halt. Randy is Sheriff and Nash, a visiting officer from Scotland Yard when the Blue Springs case has some disturbing similarities to a case in London. Alena has an impact on both men, and Alena has a powerful reaction to them as well. But the case is cold, and Alena impatient. And she finds herself in a massive heap of trouble. I have some...issues with this book. There is no discussion, I mean NONE between Nash, Randy and Alena BEFORE that first time one of the men, I forget already which, spank her, in full view of those around them. There was NO discussion about limits, about safe words or anything like that, not even after, when they were planning to attend a PARTY. Now, I'm no expert, but I read a lot of BDSM books, and the level of research that appears in those books differs greatly. Some, its outstanding the amount of research that goes into the life style and what should be expected and not. But not so here. I felt rushed into the relationship between the three of them, and I didn't much like it. I also felt that the relationship between Nash and Randy could have been developed more. They only met a few weeks ago, and I didn't feel a proper connection to THEIR connection, if you see what I mean. Also, the language used when describing the scenes between them is a little....flowery, and it wasn't consistent. Sometimes the words were explicit, and sometimes, almost Mills and Boon-worthy. I don't mind either way, but I don't think that HERE, mixing them just didn't work for me. There is no sexual contact between Nash and Randy. Had there been, I might have enjoyed it more. I'm not ashamed to say I prefer that! AND! Nash's language annoyed me, like GRRRRRRRR. Mate, luv, chap?? almost every time he spoke to Alena or Randy he used words like that. Seriously, I am UK based. I don't know ANYONE who uses those words like Nash does! I liked that I didn't get what had happened to Alena's sister until it was all resolved in the book. I had an idea, I was just wrong about how much that person was involved. Would I read anything else by Wane?? Possibly. I liked the how the sister's disappearance story was dealt with, Alena/Randy/Nash aside. I'll give them another go, if the story is not a BDSM or three way book. I did finish though, and it was touch and go for a while. I had to keep putting it down and coming back to it, reading other things in between. 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**

much better than book one!
Cherished by Two - Morticia Knight
ndependent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian. * A copy of this book was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I voluntarily read this book, and my comments here are my honest opinion. * Book two in the Soul Match series, and you really MUST read book one, Slave For Two, before you embark on this one. And this is a far better read, for me, than book one! Lasar, Nary and Chris continue to grow in their three way soul match. Lasar learns how to be Ahna (Dom) to both Nary and Chris; Nary learns how to be both Nasha (sub) to Lasar AND Ahna to Chris and Chris just learns how to be a third, a sub, a mate and all those words that come to mind. And while they are doing that, they begin to unravel just what has taken over the Nall, (their supreme commander) and is responsible for his actions. Morgan, Chris' cousin, is still in the protective custody of Lasar, for their friend, but there is something going on with a new found ally and Morgan, I think I can see what's coming for them both, but we shall see! What made this one for me, was the way each of the three soul bound mates dealt with each and every thing that came along. The way Lasar was teaching Nary, and indeed, a little vice versa. The way Chris was trying, so darn hard, to be the mate Lasar and Nary deserved, and the way Nary kinda slotted in between the two of them, beautifully! The scenes between the three of them were very well written, and I LOVED the patience that both Lasar and Nary showed Chris. Loved that they were going at HIS pace, not theirs. Oh and the Soul Healer, SHa Sha Ar, pops up again, with equally baffling sayings to Chris, who seems to be communicating more and more with The Soul Healer, through dreams and trances. There is, I sincerely hope, much more to come from these three, and Morgan and maybe even Chris' mum, who Lasar found safe with his sisters. I dunno where this is going, but I so wanna see how it gets there!! Read in one fell swoop, so... 5 full stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
