Exquisite Trouble by Ann Mayburn
Exquisite Trouble - Ann Mayburn

WTH? This book is only the first part of the story? How could I miss it while reading the introduction and the reviews of the book. 

The main character Swan has autistic traits - she can't stand people touching her skin, can't read people's expressions very well, and has several weird habits. She works as a waitress in a strip club, has two university degrees (in maths and accountancy) and watches porn in her free time. She also has a twin sister Sarah, whom she doesn't communicate very much. But then her birth mother steals from very bad people and leaves her daughters in very dangerous situation. Sarah goes after her mother trying to protect her fiance and Swan. She disappears and Swan gets kidnapped. Fortunately Iron Horse MC has Swan under surveillance and they manage to save the girl. That's how Swan finds out that the sexy client from the strip club is actually a member of the Iron Horse MC. Smoke has been keeping an eye on Swan form weeks now. He likes everything about the young woman and wants her for himself. He is also a sexual dominant and decides to take his time to ease Swan into the lifestyle. Sarah's fiance is the leader of the Iron Horse MC and asks Swan to find her sister. So, Smoke and Swan leave the town to find Sarah and girls' treacherous mother.

The story was a bit too kinky for my taste.
There were also some contradictions - Swan always stressed how people couldn't touch her skin without her feeling bugs crawling all over her. The only people who could touch her, were the people she really trusted. And then during a few days she meets three men, who all can touch her without any problems. Oh, and don't forget, all three are smoking hot. Why am I not surprised. 
Swan also seemed to be addicted to Smoke. She didn't need more than seeing him and immediately her panties were wet. I'm quite sure, it's not healthy to walk around wearing wet underwear all the time.


Exquisite Trouble had a lot of potential and I enjoyed parts of it. Swan's family was amazing and snippets about her childhood were really interesting. I also liked how Smoke didn't rush with having sex. They did quite a lot of kinky stuff, but he always made sure that Swan was comfortable with those acts. 
It annoys me a lot that Swan and Smoke's story continues in a second book. I really wanted to find out who the villains were. 
I would say it was a little bit more than OK read.
2.5 stars

The Bitter Twins - Jen Williams
The Bitter Twins - Jen Williams

This is the second book in the author's Winnowing Flame series, following on from The Ninth Rain (which I absolutely loved) and it keeps the tension and action ticking over nicely even as all sorts of bombshells are dropped on our protagonists. 

 

It's really difficult to talk about what happens in this book without spoiling the first one, so I won't go into massive details about it. It pretty much carries on straight from the end of the previous book - we know now that Hestillion was effectively aiding the enemy even though she didn't realise it, and in The Bitter Twins she spends the entire time as their captive. The war-beast pod she stole has hatched and she is effectively torn between her need to keep that creature safe and the realisation that she has betrayed her people completely. 

 

Meanwhile, back in what is left of Ebora, our other protagonists are trying to find allies against their common enemy and fight its incursions with limited resources. Tor and Noon go off on what looks like being a wild goose chase, in search of information that might help the war-beasts remember their connection to their previous lives, and discover some long-held secrets about the Eborans. Theirs is the main story, with what Bern and Aldasair get up to in the meantime proving to be more of a B plot.

 

Another excellent book, can't wait to see how this series finishes off. The final book (The Poison Song) is due out May next year!

Rich portal fantasy with a dreamy pace
Blue Window - Adina Gewirtz

Disclaimer: reviewing uncorrected digital proof via NetGalley

 

I'm not too sure how to review this one. On the one hand, it's very well written, has many strong points, and is generally enjoyable. On the other, it consistently put me to sleep every night and took about 5x longer to read than my usual pace, so . . . I guess it's good fantasy, and most definitively does not follow the contemporary thriller-pacing that we're seeing more of in YA and MG books. Recommended for young readers who enjoy the classics of kid lit, rather than reluctant readers or those who prefer fast-paced stories.

 

This is a portal fantasy, in which five siblings ranging from early to late elementary age tumble through a window into another world where they discover powers. The third-person narrative lends itself to exploring the world from each character's perspective, allowing for insightful character writing and meaningful personality development, but also feels distant. The journey-of-discovery format means the pace is dreamy and meandering, although there is a clear goal that ties it all together (get home again). There is dark/violent/disturbing content, which may push the edges of younger children's comfort level, but is in line with content from many children's classics. Lots of descriptive writing creates a detailed high fantasy world with some interesting philosophical underpinnings.

 

In summary, there's lots to like here, but for me personally, it just didn't quite come together. Maybe I was just overtired. Again, I'd recommend this for young readers (and other fans) of dense, fantasy doorstoppers and classic storytelling. Rated 5 for quality, 3 for personal taste.
