Bound Gods, Book 4 - Reborn
Reborn - Adrienne Wilder

 

Unbelievable book and unbelievable series. Multiple scenes in this installment that will be hard to top. From one of the best phone sex scenes to one of the most beautiful reuniting and rejoining of characters I have ever read. The connection and bond between these characters continues to astound me.

 

Bravo Adrienne, Bravo!

Brothers of the Wild North Sea (Audiobook)
Brothers of the Wild North Sea - Harper Fox,Hamish Long

I first read this in February 2014, and I've been meaning to reread it ever since. Thankfully, I never did or I might not have been tempted to get this on audiobook when it was released. And that would've been a shame since that would've meant missing out on Hamish Long's brilliant narration. He has a storybook quality to his voice, a Neil Gaiman-esque style of reading, that really fits perfectly with this story. I can't imagine anyone else doing this narration, and I really hope he gets tons more work because he deserves it. 

 

(He does make one teeny, tiny error though. He pronounces Samhain "sam-hane" instead of "sow-in" with "sow" sounding like "cow", which would be the correct pronunciation.)

 

I loved this book the first time I read it, and I was happy to see it held up over time. Brother Caius and viking Fenrir are such an unlikely duo, but they work here. The story is woven into a rich tapestry of historical detail, fantasy elements, religious dogma versus spiritual knowledge, and includes a cast of characters who are fully realized and each get their own little arcs. This takes place during a time in the Christian church when the church started pulling away from science in favor of zeal, and it's on the cusp of this change that Caius and Fenrir meet and form an unlikely bond.

 

Cai is angry about the death of his lover, and Fen slowly realizes that he's been abandoned by his people. Cai has every reason to hate Fen, and Fen was raised to be prejudiced against Christians. Cai is struggling to be a good monk and a good man, despite often feeling like he's neither. He just wants to live in peace, but life is determined not to give it to him. 

 

Seeing these two men slowly learn to trust each other, and watching Fen ingrate himself into monastery life was a treat to savor all over again. I'd forgotten a lot about the story over the years, but as I listened, things would come back and become familiar again. I completely forgot about the ending, and got to experience that as if for the first time. :D

 

This is just one of those stories that hits all the right spots and doesn't waver in the telling.

Release Blitz w/Review - Unwritten Law

 

 

 

 

 

 

Release Date: September 5, 2018

Cover Design: Angsty G

 

Synopsis:

 

Being an identical twin doesn’t come without issues. 

 

No one can tell us apart, not even our parents sometimes. We don’t usually use that to our advantage, but it comes in handy when my brother needs help breaking up with his boyfriends—which happens more than I’d care to admit. I know it’s enabling him, but I can’t say no to Anders. I will do anything for my twin. The breakups always go the same; they’re swift and simple.

 

Until Reed.

 

He’s everything I've fantasised about but never allowed myself to have. When I give in to temptation and begin to freak out, it’s not because he’s a guy. It’s because he thinks I’m my brother, and I can’t bring myself to tell him the truth.

Unwritten Law (Steele Brothers #1)Unwritten Law by Eden Finley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Law is used to helping his twin Anders, break up with whomever he is dating. His brother has a lot of issues and Law is just now learning he does too. Now he is practically drooling over someone who thinks he is his brother.

Reed is new to the area and has to work with Law, even though he is starting to get feelings for Anders. He is getting confused and is not sure how to react since he is attracted to both of them since they are obviously twins.

I loved the story and felt the slow burn was very real. The characters were a good fit and the story touched on subjects that some would never pull off, yet in this story it works well. I was eagerly turning each page and cannot wait to read this authors next work.

About the Author:

 

Eden Finley is an Amazon bestselling author who writes steamy contemporary romances that are full of snark and light-hearted fluff. 

 

She doesn’t take anything too seriously and lives to create an escape from real life for her readers. The ideas always begin with a wackadoodle premise, and she does her best to turn them into romances with heart. With a short attention span that rivals her five-year-old son's, she writes multiple different pairings: MM, MMF, and MF.  She's also an Australian girl and apologises for her Australianisms that sometimes don't make sense to anyone else.

great book and great characters
Making Chase (The Chase Brothers, Book 4) by Dane, Lauren (2008) Paperback - Lauren Dane

Tate sat at her station at the hair salon, she and her two younger sisters - Anne and Beth- owned owned Murphy’s Cut and Curl. Tate and Anne bought a run down old house at the far end of Main Street remodeled it with their family’s help into a hair salon. Tate was watching out the window and then she see Matt Chase across the street who was her visual donut. Tate was attracted to Matt who was a fireman who was a very attractive hot man. Matt was seeing Melanie but she was vacant and he wanted what his brothers had a good woman, a family f their own- happy. Natt was just waiting for the right woman.  Tate had been accidently pushed into the street when some HS boys rushed to get back to school. Tate got hit and Matt came out to assist her until the ambulance got there. Tate had 4 stitches in her head. Tate did Matt’s mom's-Polly- hair at the salon. Tate wished she and her siblings had a mom like Polly instead of Tina the mother they got. Polly doted on her kids Tate loved that. Many times in her life her siblings made Tate feel better. .Tate was good at three things- doing hair, cooking and dancing. Tate was so good at cooking even as adults her siblings could be found at her table. Any given day of the week. Tate had a full life with her family and business but she wanted a man to come home to and her own children. Would a man ever want the whole package - she was a big girl, she also had seven siblings and they were all involved and two sister -in-laws and their children and they were all involved with each others lives. Tate didn’t have many friends she wasn’t related to. Tate made some cookies and sent them over to Matt for his help when she had been hit by the car. Matt loved them and he could count on his hand the number of times he had been helped for what he did it was nice to be acknowledged and thanked. Matt saw the address on the package and saw it was the hair salon across the road. He decided to go over when he was done with work to thank Tate.in person. Matt liked tate really liked her. They had lunch while sitting on a bench several times a week together. Liv told Matt if he really wanted something with Tate he would really have to work so she really have to work so she would let him in. Tate had been hurt a lot because where she was from and people will say she ais after Matt’s money and name and Liv wanted to warn him. Tate wasn’t the usual type of girl Matt went out with- cheerleader, rich and gorgeous.  But Tate had her own neaty and she was a wonderful, kind, and caring person. To Matt she was beautiful in every way.

I really loved this story. It was a fast easy read that pulled at your emotions romance.that lacked nothing as far as I am concerned. At times I chuckled while reading this and others I really choked up. I felt like I was there with Tate and Matt and everyone. I loved the pace and the plot. I read this book in one setting as I couldn’t put it down.  The author did a great job on the mental and physical abuse shown in this book. I loved how close Tate was to her family and they to her and despite their upbringing and being poor and their parents how well Tate and her siblings all turned out. I could not find anything to criticize in this book and I was so happy about that. I loved Tate and Matt together and how they interacted with each other. I loved the character and the ins and outs of this book and I highly recommend it.
