Rafe
Rafe - Rebekah Weatherspoon

Fans self. Seriously. This book was ridiculously hot. I loved Rafe and I loved Sloan. I am so going to track down the books in the rest of this series. Thank you for hot male nannies with tatoos who also can comb little girls hair.

"Rafe" I thought was really good, there are some odds and ends that I would usually ding a book for, but the love scenes more than made up for it. I loved that the main character was a black woman, top of her field (heart surgeon) dealing with two 6 year old twin girls. Sloan has already let herself be ruled by a man before (her ex) so when she interviews Rafe as a nanny, she's thrown when he admits he is attracted to her and she admits she is attracted to him.

I loved the character of Sloan and her phone conversations and texts with her bestie. I was cracking up. I will agree with other reviewers though that Sloan and Rafe are not that deep. They just want to have sex with each other. I didn't really get a sense of character/relationship development. I think it's because this was on the shorter side and Weatherspoon just didn't have time to work that in. I did think that on their own the characters were developed very well. I hope that makes sense. For example, I got what made both of them tick, I loved their families, I also felt for them when you realize what went on in both of their lives before. I just wish that I got more intimacy outside of a bedroom with them.

The setting of the book is mostly Sloan's home and Rafe's parents home. We don't get a sense of Los Angeles. I read something the other day that most movies and tv shows get LA wrong and just show the usual crap. I do think that some books are able to capture LA like the Bosch series written by Michael Connelly. I wish more writers would incorporate the city the book is in more. I think if it's not New York, most don't worry about it.

The ending was a surprise (a time jump) and things are left on an unusual note, but seems a set-up for the next book in the series.

Rafe and Sheila - Shiloh Walker

3.5-ish. It gets brownie points because the h actually LEFT when the H refused to claim her, and in fact was with another man when the H tracked her down. They're kinda small though because it took him several months to realize she was gone. :/

 

So Rafe, for reasons we're never clued in on, refuses to claim Sheila, or admit he has feelings for her. So he essentially treats her like...I dunno...a blow up doll maybe? He doesn't acknowledge her or talk to her much if anyone is around, and well, after he came back from a trip and didn't speak to her for several days, she'd had enough. He had the thought that she was just saying that and was more than willing to press his point but the master and others stopped him. So...

 

The bulk of the story starts 6 months later, when he's finally tracked her down and finds her with another guy. (yep; caught in the act. Perfect.) He doesn't drag his heels for long this time re: claiming her but there's a much older vampire - an evile one - and that one decides to have new guy for a snack. Their paths cross with a couple of his old victims, who just happened to grab the poor guy and turn him - sortof. Fortunately, Rafe does help the guy.

 

Anyway, the bad guy is taken out, Rafe is now a master and he has a second...or lieutenant...or something...in the new guy. He also shares - once - the h, with the new guy.

 

The formatting issue wasn't completely absent, but for the most part, someone did pay attention to scene changes and put a few breaks and asterisks in. So...yay?

REVIEW BY CHARLOTTE - Blake Blacks Out (Differing Sexuality) by Rafe Jadison
Blake Blacks Out (Differing Sexuality) - Rafe Jadison

Blake is perfect. Well, at least he looks that way. Everyone loves him, and to Blake's frustration, everyone falls in love with him, or at least they say they do. Then something happens. Blake blacks out. In those most crucial of intimate moments, Blake blacks out. But after one hundred and one horrible dates, Blake gets an offer from the sexy Jerome who swears that he can handle him.

 

@hotchoc84 (Charlotte), @RafeJadison, #Contemporary, #M_M, #Romance, 4 out of 5 (very good)

REVIEW BY ALVIA - Snowed In: Dane and Heath by Rafe Jadison
Snowed In: Dane and Heath - Rafe Jadison

Dane Sanders was a great boss. He was sexy; he whistled. He even brought Heath candy the first time they had to stay late working at Pristine Mortgage.

Unfortunately, all that changed the night Snowstorm Satan, or whatever they named it, hit the suburbs of DC. No longer was Dane Sanders sexy -- he was an arrogant jerk who thought they should stay late just to get some stupid loans out.

At least that’s what Heath thinks at first. But Dane lets out a few juicy secrets, and after their escape down an icy hill proves frightening, Heath starts to think there’s a lot he doesn’t know about his sexy new boss.

When the two find themselves trapped at work with only beer and microwave dinners to get them through, everything changes, and Heath and Dane get some rather interesting ideas on how to stay warm in a snow storm.
