Synopsis:

 

Falling in love is easy. 
Making it work, well, that's where the fun begins.
 
Falling in love with Kyle Beaumont helped Elliott Judd find a romantic piece of himself he didn't know existed. The two men take the next step in their relationship when Kyle moves into Elliott's place, but despite the passion he feels for his talented mechanic and lover, the scorching hot race car driver suddenly feels out of place in his own home.
 
Kyle adores Elliott, and thinks of him as the love of his life he didn't see coming. But calling a mansion home and fitting into Elliott's space is more of a culture shock than he'd anticipated. Join Kyle and Elliott as they adjust to sharing their lives with one another, both in and out of the spotlight. You'll laugh, you'll cry, and you'll wonder if these two will ever get it right.

Something about bringing in boxes and depositing a bunch of functional home making equipment within them means the temperature of an apartment grows cold. I’m moving about, shifting things from one place to another, cleaning inside kitchen cupboards ready for tomorrow morning’s handover with the rental agent. I should be warm. But I’m frozen to my core.

This was the place that I argued with my dad, one of our last conversations and certainly our last argument.

This is where I was living when I opened the contract for my new position which would eventually lead to meeting Elliott. I’ll be leaving a part of my history within these grubby walls. I know moving doesn’t mean you abandon the memories, but I’m still taken aback by how sentimental I feel about a place I never really liked that much. I guess it’s like splitting up with a girlfriend you don’t like. You’re still sad it didn’t work out, but you never had expectations in the first place.

Humans are complicated. It baffles me how we can make sense of others when we very often can’t make sense of ourselves.

Ooh, where to start? I used to work in a proper job that was KILLING me -- slowly! I packed it all in and retrained as a massage therapist and reflexologist which meant I had downtime to fill and I knew just the thing.
 
So, now I spend more hours than I work in my office conjuring up all manner of sex scenes and scrapes. I say I'm so happy because I have whichever imaginary friends with me, doing exactly what I like, when I want. Who could ask for more? Hah!
 
By the way, now I have NO downtime.
 
Please follow me, I'm on Facebook and Twitter Twatter and Instagram and I have my own
website, www.KarenBotha.com. It would be great to get some interaction from you guys. Much as I love my imaginary friends, it's great to speak to real people too.

"The End We Start From" by Megan Hunter - not for me
The End We Start From - Megan Hunter

I bought this novella as an audiobook.  It has an intriguing end-of-days setting. It's poetic in its intent and execution. It's been highly praised and heavily hyped. It's two hours and two minutes long and yet it felt like a test of my endurance.

 

I found the lyricism self-conscious and over-wrought. There are many fine sentences but having them layered endlessly on one another becomes a burden of blessings. The whole here is much less than the parts.

 

The story is told by a woman who metaphorically refuses to make eye contact with either the reader or herself. She normalises commenting on the world in a way so oblique that it's like looking through small slits in cloth and trying to see what's going on.

 

For reasons I still don't understand, she refers to everyone only by the first letter of their first name, as if letters were rationed.

 

The rhythm is punishingly slow. The narrative drifts through dense prose that is vivid but directionless. There is no "why?", no "what next?" just a relentlessly drab "right now" that is soaked in dispassionate disassociative observation.

 

There is some wonderful stuff on the physical and emotional links between newborn and mother but the context makes it feel less like a maternal bond and more like an escape from a world that is falling apart.

 

This is probably a wonderful book in the same way that Philip Glass probably writes wonderful operas, it's just that neither of them is for me.

The End We Start From by Megan Hunter
The End We Start From - Megan Hunter

This is a poetic novel about a natural disaster hitting London, and presumably the world, told from the perspective of a young woman and her family. Nothing is certain, and the future seems bleak indeed, but her focus is on her young baby.

It is beautifully written, and sparse. The narrative style of the book had a very different effect on me then many other readers it seems, I felt too far away from the events of the book by the prose style. There was a lot of terror and heartbreak and numbing hopelessness between the lines here, and I wanted to get inside the narrator's head. She kept me at a distance. I liked the naming of characters by single letters, but everything else about the book was cut down to its bare essentials. Aesthetically this is intriguing, but its not for me.

Slow start but had me racing to the end.
False Start (McKay-Tucker Men Book 1) - Marianne Rice

This is the first book I have read by this author. It took a bit to get into the story, but once there, I did not want to put it down. Meg had been through a lot, and I understood her hesitancy to let someone into her life. She had an hard shell covering her broken center. I loved her interactions with her daughter and Connor. Connor was a sweetheart, although he was not very communicative. He was full of reaction before thought. They made a great couple and had me laughing, crying, and sighing throughout the story.

This is my unsolicited review.
