Sex. Drugs. And Rock... Color Purple. Very 70-ies.
What. A. Drag.
Never a straight (no pun) line in this book. I don't mind when a story gets from A to D via B, C and while at it detours through E and K. I do mind however, when the author goes through entire alphabet to connect A to B. Now imagine that alphabet being intense purple. It frigging haunts me in my sleep now.
And no, DD was not the one and only writing and publishing queer literature prior to 2001. No credit for that. Sorry, not sorry.
PS And what's with the cover? O.o
Ryder & Jason meet and have immediate attraction. Among the shared interests, are the cute puppies who need love. Ryder no longer has the patience for someone who is really not into him. His last relationship was enough.
Jason cannot help how he feels. He also feels like he never tell anyone how he really feels. Every time he thinks he can, he chickens out. Is what he feels for Ryder enough to give him the strength?
This story was very entertaining. It also had moments where it felt kind of slow. The family aspect was amazing and I hope we see more of this in later series books. The characters were an interesting mix and felt like opposites attract. I give this story a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
This is my first book by Ayres. It also happens to be book six in A K-9 Rescue Series. This s the story of Macayla “Mac” who’s a pet detective and Oliver a K-9 Search and Rescue operative. The teasing banter, sexy flirting and comedy between the two were what made the book so good. After finishing Physical Forces, I had to go back and pick up the other books just to see what I missed. I am happy to say I have found a new one click author. I cannot wait to read my next one.
The story is very well written and the flow is good, but I had trouble connecting to these characters. Meredith runs hot and cold through much of the book and comes across a bit teenager like instead of the mature business woman that she's supposed to be. Cole is the typical playboy who doesn't want a relationship when his attraction grows into feelings for Meredith. The story goes on a little more than I felt it needed to with the lack of communication, and other than this couple denying what they want, there wasn't much more to the story. I would've liked to have seen more of the story behind Brandon's business problems and Cole's past, but they felt almost like second thoughts when they came up. The author does write beautifully, this one just fell flat for me.
