More Bo & Lucky...need I say more...
Reunion - Eden Winters

So last Wednesday a couple of my Buddy Read Besties and I did this thing where we all pulled up our copies of 'Reunion' by Eden Winters and we jumped, we dived and we unrepentantly fell into this story. It was Bo and Lucky at their best and without a doubt it was one of our best buddy reads EVAH!!!...well, almost we were missing a member...*side-eyes Josy* but she did pop in to visit from time to time so that helped.

 

I'm probably going to take my lazy reviewers way out on this one for a couple of reasons...one because hey already some awesome reviews out there, here's proof...

Simone's Awesome 'Reunion' Review

Christelle's Amazing Reunion Review

Thanks for sharing the fun with me ladies as always you made something fantastic even more so.

 

So I'm just going to add a few random thoughts on this one before moving on. First if you haven't read the previous books in this series...ok, I admit it I don't really understand but ok, yes I do...so many books so little time, but honestly make time for this series you won't regret or at least I can't imagine that you will...*side-eyes Josy, again*.

 

If you have read been reading this series I think you're really going to love this one. I know we've been left hanging white-knuckles and all on the edge of a cliff at times, we've been left wondering how these guys are every going to make it, clutching our teddys with tears in our eyes and diligently praying for more...like yesterday but in this one at the end of it all we were left feeling pretty damned good about things and yes, still wanting more.

 

'Reunion' was filled with so much emotion we laughed...Oh how we laughed, we had a couple of 'what the hell?' moments and there may have been a tissue or two sacrificed along the way but at the end of it all without a doubt this one was 100% worth reading. 

 

Like my friend and Buddy Read Bestie Simone, I've been with this amazing series for a few years now and there is zero doubt in my mind that I'm in it for the long haul and I love that we've added Christelle to team #LUCKYandBOforever! For as much as I loved reading this one Christelle and Simone sharing the experience with you both made it even better and I can't wait until the next one because I just know that we'll have our fourth member of this buddy read team on board and up to speed for it..."right Josy?" *that's right I'ma lookin' at you girlfriend*...no pressure though ;)

I'm totally a softy where Virgo's are concerned...
Scorpio Hates Virgo - Anyta Sunday

I really, really loved 'Leo Loves Aries' and enjoyed the hell out of that book and while I'm not sure that I'd say I loved this one more I definitely loved it every bit as much as 'Leo Loves Aries'. 

 

Percy's returned home to the cul-de-sac after the funeral of his beloved Aunt and he's determined that he needs to sell the house that was left to him in order to move on with his life. What he hasn't counted on is that maybe the people in this close knit little community...his aunt's neighbors and one neighbor in particular would do their subtle and not so subtle best to make him see that sometimes moving on has more to do with where your heart is than your body.

 

Within minutes of his return to his aunt's home Percy's confronted by Callaghan Glover his nemisis and verbal sparring partner. 

 

Percy's got his hands full in this one. He's determined to sell his Aunt's house and move on from the grief that it holds for him. But first he's got to deal with a cousin whose grief is expressed through anger, a neighborhood that's convinced he needs to spruce up his aunt's home and make it his own, his nemesis who seems determined to change the dynamics of their relationship and whose family is starting to feel suspiciously like they need him as much as he needs them. Then there's the neighborhood game of 'Sherlock Gnomes' that's just too tempting to resist add in some eggnog and a few carrot cake muffins with cream cheese frosting and you've got the makings of some fun and yummy times.

 

I loved how sweet this story was and for as much as I enjoyed seeing Percy and Cal interact and watching their relationship develop and change I also loved all the neighbors and Cal's family...well, except for his dad...sorry, him I just did not understand and I really don't care to try. And I totally want to join in with the Sherlock Gnomes and play Zombie Apocalypse, this just sounds like to much fun to miss out on and hey, Leone, Theo and Jamie were on board for this too.

 

Percy's so busy with trying to move on that what he almost does't see is that he's building memories and re-starting his life right there in the place he wants to leave...

"...But you brought more inside, Cal. You brought kindness and affection. You brought friendship." Heat pooled behind his eyes and he blinked hard, voice catching. "You brought me family."

'Scorpio Hates Virgo' is a sweet, low angst, fun, enemies to lovers story and I loved the added touch of the compatibility of the different signs of the zodiac. While I'm not someone who checks their horoscope on a daily or even a weekly basis, I can't deny that in general the subject of astrology holds a certain fascination for me and in the case of this book it was just too tempting for me to resist since my son's a Virgo and I was curious to see if I would find any similarities between him and the character of Cal and I did...so needless to say I adored Cal. But, I also loved Percy too for all that he'd been through I found him to be feisty and caring and I loved that in spite of how much he claimed to want to sell the house and move away his heart was never truly into the idea.

 

I'm curious to see what signs Anyta Sunday has planned next for this series...maybe Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces? There are so many possibilities, I'm definitely looking forward to finding out.

Some bets were never meant to be made...
Leo Tops Aries - Anyta Sunday

When Theo makes a bet with his Aries that he can hold out the longest there are no limits on how far the rules get stretched.

 

"Leo Tops Aries" is a short, sweet, very entertaining story about a bet between Theo and Jamie and it's got the all the banter, teasing and snark that we got in "Leo Loves Aries" and needless to say I quickly devoured this one as I'm sure did anyone who read "Leo Loves Aries" and loved it. 

 

This one's definitely worth taking the time to find and read. Enjoy!

Well that was unexpected...
Darkness - Kate Sherwood

We've all been waiting for the sexy times to arrive and they did...I'm betting it was seriously hot...but, I can't say for sure because damned if I didn't get the bedroom door slammed in my face...figuratively speaking.

 

There was one scene in this book that was definitely the lovin' and sexy times I've been waiting for these men to share. Unfortunately it seems that Jericho and Wade prefer to have their privacy and while things started on page that was not where they finished. I admit I was the tiniest bit disappointed because for me the passion and sexual tension between these two is off the charts. Needless to say I had to let my imagination take over so let me just assure you a good time was had by all in my mind.

 

While I may have been a little disappointed by the whole fade to black issue the rest of this book did not disappoint me at all. The main story line for this book became fairly predictable early on but that really doesn't bother me because it's the bigger picture here that's got me hooked. It's the stories playing out in the background that are why I keep coming back so willingly. The local police corruption, Jericho's efforts to sort out what really happened to his father, his sense of responsibility to his new-found siblings and their mother, Nikki. Nikki's role in some of the criminal activities going on around town and just generally anything and everything involving Wade. 

 

Jericho's having a bit of a crisis of faith. He's a cop and he believes in the system, or at least he does until it seems like the system is failing and the innocent are looking guilty while the guilty are getting away with murder and who knows what else. While Wade's got his back at least he does as much as Jericho will allow. It would seem that Jericho's not sure of much anymore. Just like the city of old, Jericho's walls are crumbling and while he's not sure what or how, he's thinking things need to change. 

 

Without a doubt my absolute favorite part of this story has been the relationship dynamics between Jericho and Wade. I'm more than a little curious to see where things are heading between these two men and can't wait to dive in to the next book and hopefully get the answers to all my questions.

 

So far things are sitting happily at 4.5 stars with me and while I'd love some sexy times between these two that's just the voyeur in me and no real reflection on the amazing story that this author has been telling. I'm so looking forward to the next book because hell yeah, more Jericho and Wade! But sadly it's also the final installment in this series so it's a mixed blessing but I'll take it.

Still not feeling a lot of sunshine and happiness, so...
Secrets of You - Skylar M. Cates

I think I'm done here now. I was sure if anyone's story was going to make me gush it was going to be River's. He's been my favorite since the beginning. I can't help it, I like me a dark, brooding man of mystery in my books it just pushes all my hot buttons and River does that...his story...not so much.

 

Out of all the couples so far in this series though, I do have to admit River and Morgan are definitely my favorites.

 

Morgan has been through such a scary experience when he was attacked behind a club in a previous book but he's learning to deal with his fears and thankfully he was rescued by a mysterious stranger who didn't hang around once he knew Morgan was safe. While Morgan doesn't remember a lot of what happened because he was drugged it was still an incredibly scary experience and he's dealing with it with the help of his friends and his therapist. Morgan's also had a crush on River since the minute he first saw him.

 

River's dark and brooding and when things get to be too much he jumps on his Harley and he rides. No good-byes, see you laters, I'll  be back...he's just gone. He disappears...he runs it's his back-up plan when he can no longer deal. That is until he realizes he's tired. Tired of being alone, of running, of all the dark and bad that's in his life. But mostly River just needs to learn to forgive himself. He's got things in his past. Memories that won't let go of him, things that he blames himself for but maybe...just maybe if he'd open up and talk to someone...he'd gain a better perspective on things and maybe he'd see that while he wasn't totally without blame, he also wasn't responsible for some of it. 

 

Things heat up when River and Morgan find themselves alone in the house for 2 weeks and an evening of celebrating a little too much lowers Rivers resistance to Morgan and Morgan makes it known that he's more than willing to see where the road goes where he and River are concerned. Morgan wants to make River smile again and once he opens up River realizes that he just wants to love and be loved. 

 

'Secrets of You' was about letting go of the past  and looking for a future, learning to forgive yourself and accepting that who you are is ok and it's who you're meant to be. it's also about really loving someone for the first time and knowing when to stay, when you've only ever run.

 

When you get down to it this should have all worked for me. I mean seriously worked and yet somehow...I just didn't connect. River and Morgan should have had me crying and laughing and melting into a puddle of goo on the floor...it was all there and it just never happened.  So I'm thinking it's me, that's right for whatever reason I'm just not connecting with these stories anymore and sometimes things happen that way.

 

While I sincerely hope that there is more to come from this author with this series because I have some awesome friends who really, really want her to write more. I don't think I'll be continuing. It's not that the stories are bad by any means it's just that for whatever reason they're just not my cuppa' but the rest of you carry on and enjoy because these guys are definitely smokin' hot!
