Extremely addictive uf series
Vampire's Kiss (Legion of Angels) (Volume 1) - Ella Summers

Bear with me as I sort through why Vampire’s Kiss had all the elements I love like snark, sexual tension, interesting mythology and totally worked for me, while other books with the same tropes that I’ve read recently have not. Hmm. Ever read a book where it feels like they are trying too hard, either with the humour or the suspense or the sexiness? I think that’s it. The other urban fantasy books I’d started recently were trying too hard. Like the authors knew there was a formula that readers enjoyed and were attempting to shove those elements into it.

 

This story felt effortless in all the best ways. Let’s start with our MC, Leda. Yes, she’s badass and snarky and has difficulties with rules when someone she cares about is in danger, but these character qualities never feel over-the-top, and in fact, give her considerable difficulty at times. I simply loved everything about her voice.

 

Then there is Nero, our main love interest. He’s an angel, but Summers steers away from a lot of the clichés. In this world, angels can be made, which brings up an interesting discussion about the nature of humanity, that gets deeper, the deeper you get into the series.

 

Every book deals with Leda levelling up as she moves through the Legion, with missions and sexytimes. How do I know this? Well, I’ve binged the first 4 books in 3 days. It’s actually a good thing that the final book was released because I’m going to need it very soon.

 

If you’re jonsing for good uf, check this series out.

Still in it for Prince Robot
Saga, Volume 6 - Brian K. Vaughan,Fiona Staples

And I don't care; I'm shameless about it.   I love him the most and I'm in it for him - still.   I resent when the story veers away from him, even though it's really mostly not about him.   I don't care. 

 

I would read the shit out of a Prince Robot IV series, though!

The Weight of Shadows (Shadow Series) (Volume 1) - Karl Holton

 

 

Wow... I was on the edge of my seat through much of the book! Very good, intense suspense.
Detective Benedict is haunted by the murder of his partner 3 years earlier, and some colleagues blame him for it. He now has to investigate different crimes that appear unrelated-- a mega jewel heist, a brutal murder and his department is investigating international mafias and their spread into England. Then one of his colleagues is killed in a similar manner to the first heinous murder-- are they related or is it a copycat?
Ray Hanson became a billionaire laundering money for many international criminals, creating many friends but many enemies as well. He regrets his past and wishes to make good on his life of crime by making a difference. But someone out of his past wishes to use his skills and deftly maneuvering money and kidnaps his most prized possession, his daughter to try to convince him to cooperate. He has just 21 hours from the time he finds out about the kidnapping to accomplish this or his daughter dies as the hands of a hired assassin that even the criminals that hire him to kill only know him by as "The Doctor"-- and he is horrible. Can they save Ray's daughter?
I am eager to read the next in the series The Wait for Shadows to see what happens with Detective Benedict and the other characters. Due to my enjoyment of reading this first in the series, my expectations for the second are high. : ) 
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review, thank you!

Gathering Storm (Firsts and Forever, #4) by Alexa Land 4 Stars Review!
Gathering Storm (Firsts and Forever) (Volume 4) - Alexa Land

Working as a gay porn star has brought twenty-two-year-old Hunter Storm fame and fortune, but it’s cost him a lot, too. He’s learned to think of his body as little more than a commodity, and he copes with his loneliness by giving himself to whoever will have him. The job has also put him in the crosshairs of a stalker, a man so deeply disturbed that Hunter and everyone around him is in danger. 

Fortunately, Hunter has allies, including his best friend Christopher and Nana Dombruso, a feisty senior who’s decided he's family. And then there’s Brian Nolan. When Hunter first meets the angry, wheelchair-bound former Marine, it’s hate at first sight. But despite his shattered body and tattered psyche, Brian might turn out to be the best ally of all. 

This gay romance is the fourth book in Alexa Land’s best-selling Firsts and Forever series, but each book in the series is written to stand alone, so jump in anywhere.

 

Review

 

Hunter and Brian. 

Brian has more than an anger management problem and Hunter has lost all sense of himself. Really so has Brian. 

This is love story of healing and finding yourself and your value. It has a crazy believable stalker and looks in a fairly balanced way the gay porn industry. 

We have the crazy antics of Nana, a great circle of friends, and really heartwarming love story.
