Pre-Order Blast - Harmless

Title: Harmless
Series: Pier 70 #4
Author: Nicole Edwards
Genre: Adult, MM Romance
Coming: March 28, 2017
He’s got a secret...
Roan Gregory, one of the four owners of Pier 70 Marina, has managed to paint himself as a loner in recent months. There’s a reason for that. And he’s got every intention of keeping that reason a secret. That is, until he no longer has the option.

He’s got a secret, too...
Colton Seguine, defenseman for the Austin Arrows, has gotten good at keeping the world from finding out that he’s gay. He knows exactly what he can and cannot do. And with whom. That is, until he sees Roan for the first time and all bets are off.

Some secrets are too big to keep.
Temperatures soar when this brooding bad boy gets his first taste of this smoking hot hockey player.

Can Roan and Seg push past each other’s defenses? Or -- thanks to the way the cards have been dealt -- will the time they spent together prove to be just a harmless one night stand?
 

 
 
 
 
Harmless (Pier 70, #4)Harmless by Nicole Edwards
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is book #4, in the Pier 70 series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding, without the spoilers, I recommend reading in order.

Roan has a past with Colton AKA Seg, a past he wants no one to know about. Aside from the pain and humiliation it brings, it could be detrimental to Colton's career. Roan knows that nothing short of a miracle would change things. He also knows he has too much on his plate now to look back.

Colton has never wanted anything the way he wants just a chance of a future with Roan. One that does not seem to be mutual. Can he change the man's mind before it's too late?

There is so much to this story. I was eagerly turning pages. This book has rich characters with serious heart. The story also calls for some heat. Really good read with characters you can enjoy again and again. This will be one I add to my permanent shelf.

What a Great Sneak Preview!
The Boy on the Bridge (Extended Free Preview) - M.R. Carey

Wow. I had no idea how much I was missing "The Girl With All the Gifts" until I read this free extended preview of "The Boy on the Bridge." This is not a sequel they say, but it takes place in the same post apocalyptic world that Carey wrote about in "The Girl With All The Gifts."

 

We seem to be following another team that is out to figure out how to combat the hungries in a changed world. We start off following the POV of a character named Dr. Khan who I imagine is going to be just as important to the boy on the bridge as was Miss Justineau was to Melanie in "The Girl With All the Gifts." I won't reveal what I read so far since I don't want to have spoilers out there for everyone, but I read enough to be demanding even more. I need this book so badly right now. I am worried about Khan and a boy named Stephen Greaves who seems to not be a typical boy who is along with this science team. 

 

The writing was lyrical and sad at times. Carey definitely gets you in the right headspace of a world that is slowly dying and or dead. That humanity is about to be wiped out and there's nothing that anyone can do to turn the tide. I wonder after the events of "The Girl With All the Gifts" what this new crew of men and women are going to do when they eventually find out about what happened. 

 

I can't really speak much about flow. I thought this was a bit disjointed, but I am not going to ding this preview for that. It will probably get better when the full version is up for reading. I think I liked being in Khan's POV much more than Stephen's. Yes I love the character of Melanie and don't see how anyone else is going to surpass her.

Books I Bought This Week (March 3, 2017)
The Collapsing Empire - John Scalzi
The Boy on the Bridge (Extended Free Preview) - M.R. Carey
A Crown of Wishes - Roshani Chokshi
Silence Fallen - Patricia Briggs

I don't mind showing the books I bought once a week since I hope it showcases books out there that many here at Booklikes may not know are coming out or are already out. Doing a weekly TBR list was too much to track. My holds and borrows at the library at this point are out of control. 

 

 

The Collapsing Empire by John Scalzi

Release date: March 21, 2017

Our universe is ruled by physics. Faster-than-light travel is impossible—until the discovery of the Flow, an extradimensional field available at certain points in space-time, which can take us to other planets around other stars.

 

Riding the Flow, humanity spreads to innumerable other worlds. Earth is forgotten. A new empire arises, the Interdependency, based on the doctrine that no one human outpost can survive without the others. It’s a hedge against interstellar war—and, for the empire’s rulers, a system of control.

 

The Flow is eternal—but it’s not static. Just as a river changes course, the Flow changes as well. In rare cases, entire worlds have been cut off from the rest of humanity. When it’s discovered that the entire Flow is moving, possibly separating all human worlds from one another forever, three individuals—a scientist, a starship captain, and the emperox of the Interdependency—must race against time to discover what, if anything, can be salvaged from an interstellar empire on the brink of collapse.

 

The Boy on the Bridge (Extended Free Preview) by M.R. Carey

Release Date: February 14, 2017

 

Once upon a time, in a land blighted by terror, there was a very clever boy.

The people thought the boy could save them, so they opened their gates and sent him out into the world.

To where the monsters lived.

 

A Crown of Wishes by Roshani Chokshi

Release Date: March 28, 2017

Gauri, the princess of Bharata, has been taken as a prisoner of war by her kingdom’s enemies. Faced with a future of exile and scorn, Gauri has nothing left to lose. Hope unexpectedly comes in the form of Vikram, the cunning prince of a neighboring land and her sworn enemy kingdom. Unsatisfied with becoming a mere puppet king, Vikram offers Gauri a chance to win back her kingdom in exchange for her battle prowess. Together, they’ll have to set aside their differences and team up to win the Tournament of Wishes – a competition held in a mythical city where the Lord of Wealth promises a wish to the victor.

 

Reaching the tournament is just the beginning. Once they arrive, danger takes on new shapes: poisonous courtesans and mischievous story birds, a feast of fears and twisted fairy revels.

 

Every which way they turn new trials will test their wit and strength. But what Gauri and Vikram will soon discover is that there’s nothing more dangerous than what they most desire.

 

Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs

Release Date: March 7, 2017

Unable to contact Adam and the rest of the pack, Mercy has allies to find and enemies to fight, and she needs to figure out which is which.
