Brandon

 

“Gem,” I call but not too loud and knock her window glass again. Coming here was a hard ascent. Though it’s not too high, climbing pipes was never my forte and this was the first time I tried it. Currently I am on her window aisle, shivering in the cold , waiting for her to open the damn window. I can squeeze in easily once she opens it. “Gem,” I call again. I finally here scrambling footsteps approaching the window sil. “Brandon?” she calls out, sliding the window open. “Hey,” I wave and she stumbles back letting out a chuckle. “It’s really you. I thought I was dreaming!” “Nice to hear I visit your dream as well,” I wink and her cheeks turn red. I am always rewarded with her blush when I catch her unguarded like this. She crosses her arms across her chest and puffs. I can’t help but notice her chest rising higher, together with her boobs. The grey satin night gown she is donning is a treat to my eyes. It reaches just up to her mid-thighs with the netted-coat draping on either sides, but it still gives a good view of her long naked legs that I had missed out in her party gown. “What do I actually do in these dreams of yours?” I ask, propping my elbows on the window sill. “I am sure you will be more than happy to do the same if I let you in,” She tells boldly, leaning forward. So I suppose I was right in guessing she has dirty dreams about me. I am one lucky guy. “That’s exactly what I had in mind. I will take you up on your offer. Demonstration is more gratifying, right?” She looks at me mortified, but steps away to let me enter. I hop into her room and inhale the scent which smells solely and exclusively of Gem. “Sorry, but unfortunately I don’t keep condoms in my room. I hope you have come prepared,” she tells with her back to me. She has got to be fucking kidding me. When Gem resorts to flirting there is no stopping her. “I don’t mind fathering your kids. In fact it would be my pleasure, especially if they go after you in looks and brains. I would be a proud dad.” Do I mean it? I do, I think. That family picture looks perfect. She gasps and turns to me with wide eyes. I am not sure if she is shocked or amazed. Her mouth tics up and I get my answer. She is definitely happy. “I would want them to have your hair. I love the color.” Gem always has a problem with her hair color. She has dark brown hair which complements her skin tone, but she wanted a lighter color. But I am against her dying it. I rub my chin in speculation. “If you say so…but I do like your hair.” “And hazel eyes,” she continues stepping forward. “Your eyes are so beautiful.” “No,” I argue. “Your eyes are enchanting. Definitely emerald green.” “Hazel,” she steps closer. “No. Green,” I refute, covering the gap. When she is just an inch away she mutters, “Let’s just have twins. One with green eyes and blone hair and the other with hazel eyes and brown hair. Perfect combination of both?” “Awesome idea.” I clasp both her hands. “For that to happen, don’t you suppose we should get down to some action?” She looks deep into my eyes, her face basking in the glow of the two bedside lamps. “You are not serious,” she says softly. “You want me to be?” I ask, pushing her back towards her bed. Uncertainty flickers in her eyes before she slowly shakes her head. “No.” If she had said yes, I would have definitely taken her up on her offer this time and would not even hold back. Her answer is a sad no and I should just suck it. “What are you doing here, again?” All I see in her eyes is twirling confusion. She wants me, but she doesn’t want to want me. Maybe she is annoyed at herself for wanting this. Either way, it’s funny. “Well, the night is not over yet. And I want to make the best of the hours left.” “How do you plan on doing that?” Now she wants me to want what she wants but can’t admit to. “By sleeping with you,” I whisper huskily in her ears. Her throat bobs and her lips part. “Show me how.” Smart girl. She is leaving the choice to me. I hop onto her bed and settle comfortably on her bedspread. I stretch my arm on her pillow and raise my brows at her. “My hand will be your pillow for the night. Once in a lifetime opportunity. Don’t miss it.” Her face glows with pure happiness this time and she follows suit, and lands on her back with her head on my arms and her body curved towards mine. “This is a good idea.” She bites her plump lips. “What brought this on?” “I should have done this the last time I had got such a chance. But I fucked up, and now I want to correct my fault.” “You are doing it just for me?” Her doubt lingers in her tone. “It’s never just for you, Gem. It’s as much for me as its for you. I need this. I need the proximity. I need you.” “Me too.” Her hands rest on my chest while my other arm curves around her waist. “If dad finds out he will kick us out of the house.” “I will leave by then,” I assure. “Will use the same route.” She chuckles but doesn’t object. “There is one slight problem, though.” “What?” she jerks her head up and looks down on me. “You will wake up to my boner. You can’t complain about it.” She snorts and falls back on my arm. “I would be disappointed if you didn’t have one. I would think that I am losing my effect on you.” That’s my Girl. Always frank. My Girl. I love the sound of that. Will make her mine…One fine day.

If I liked reading this one...
Cleansing Flame - Andrew Grey

If I liked reading this one...

 

the audio book totally made me love this one.

 

I liked this book a lot back in March when I read it so I think it goes without saying that when a chance to listen to the audio book presented itself I was all over that and if anything I'm liking it a whole lot more, so there's no read change where my original review of 'Cleansing Flame' is concerned. So I'm just going to add a link to my original review because there's really no point to fixing what isn't broken...

Original Review: Cleansing Flame

 

Michael Pauley is the narrator for this book and while he definitely ticked off all the points on my 'basic audio checklist' I'm at a bit of a loss as to the exact reasons why but his narration for 'Cleansing Flame' not only ticked that list but hit a few bells and whistles along the way as well because while the e-book easily got 4 stars from me the audio book bumped things up to 5 stars. Even though I've already read the book for me the audio experience was like discovering this story for the first time all over again.

 

'Cleansing Flame' is a sweet low angst story of second chances, starting over, finding love but most of all it was about perspectives. Whether the glass is half empty or half full. 'Cleansing Flame' is a lovely reminder that it the glass is only half empty it's because the other half is full.

An audio book of 'Cleansing Flame' was graciously provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

The Curse of the Kings / Victoria Holt
The Curse of the Kings - Victoria Holt

For centuries the tombs of the Pharaohs were haunted by a deadly curse. And when two eminent archaeologists have died mysteriously, Judith Osmond was certain that it was the curse at work. Then, overnight, her life changed.

There was an unexpected inheritance. Then Tybalt, a young archaeologist and the man she adored, asked her to marry him. But Tybalt planned a honeymoon amid the tombs of the Pharaohs, and suddenly it looked as if the curse of the kings had come to haunt Judith . . .

 

***2017 Summer Lovin’ Reading List ***

I really enjoyed Victoria Holt’s books when I was in my teens. Re-reading them as a mature adult has been a bit disappointing. Having always had a bit of thing for Ancient Egypt, I recall being enchanted by The Curse of the Kings. Unfortunately, having just recently read The Lord of the Far Island, I can now see far too clearly how formulaic Holt’s romances were.

The main character is an orphan, she gets her education as a fortunate extra with the children of the gentry, she’s beautiful & spirited, and she gets miraculously saved from a desperate life as a lady’s companion by snagging the man intended for the well-born gal. Still, there is a slightly older, beautiful woman who seems like she might be competition for the husband’s interest and there are mysterious goings-on.

I think my main beef with this book is Judith’s education. The reader is told repeatedly how she has read ever so many books on archaeology and Ancient Egypt, and yet there is her new husband explaining tomb paintings to her, pointing out Anubis and Amun, as if she has never seen a book before and she acting like it’s all brand new!

And I had never realized before how undemonstrative Tybalt is! I associate the name Tybalt with fiery passion, so it seems strange to have this cold man share the name.

Perhaps I should have let sleeping dogs lie, but I have another of Holt’s books out of the public library, which I will likely read.

Undead and Unwed / MaryJanice Davidson
Undead and Unwed - MaryJanice Davidson

It's been a helluva week for Betsy Taylor. First, she loses her job. Then, to top things off, she's killed in a car accident. But what really bites (besides waking up in the morgue dressed in a pink suit and cheap shoes courtesy of her stepmother) is that she can't seem to stay dead. Every night she rises with a horrible craving for blood. She's not taking too well to a liquid diet.

Worst of all, her new friends have the ridiculous idea that Betsy is the prophesied vampire queen, and they want her help in overthrowing the most obnoxious, power-hungry vampire in five centuries - a badly dressed Bela Lugosi wannabe, natch. Frankly, Betsy couldn't care less about vamp politics, but they have a powerful weapon of persuasion: designer shoes. How can any self-respecting girl say no? But a collection of Ferragamos isn't the only temptation for Betsy. It's just a lot safer than the scrumptious Sinclair - a seductive bloodsucker whose sexy gaze seems as dangerous as a stake through the heart...

 

***2017 Summer Lovin’ Reading List ***

Before there was Molly Harper’s Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs there was MaryJanice Davidson’s Undead and unwed. They feel somewhat related, but although I really enjoy Harper’s fiction, I think I have had enough of Davidson’s. The difference, for me, is in the main character. I can relate to Jane Jameson (Harper)—she’s educated, she’s a librarian/bookstore owner, she’s snarky and sometimes a bit neurotic, but always basically good-hearted. Betsy Taylor (Davidson) is another kind of woman entirely—she’s shallow, uneducated, unfocused, mouthy, selfish, and seemingly completely motivated by designer shoes. I’m sure there’s a target-market for Betsy out there somewhere, I’m just not it.

It’s not that she doesn’t get some good lines, like “I was the Queen who brought all the tribes together, who ruled them as one. Like the Speaker of the House, only way more blood thirsty. More Book of the Dead crap, which Tina had been reading to me all night. It was like attending Bible school in hell.” Or when she first meets Eric Sinclair, “His shoes were—whoa! Where those Ferragamos? It was a rare and wonderful thing to see a properly shod man in an underground mausoleum.”

The “humour” missed its mark for me as often as it hit. I felt the author was trying too hard. But, as I have often stated in my reviews, my comprehension of humour in print is challenged. I had to order this volume via interlibrary loan in order to read it, making feel that I had to finish the book to justify ordering it from another part of the province. I shan’t bother with further volumes.
