Will Grayson, Will Grayson - John Green,David Levithan

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

Overall, I enjoyed this book. I didn't like it as much as some of the other John Green books I have read, but it was still a good read.

Interesting concept for a story. I really enjoyed the characters. I'll admit it took me a while to warm up to Will Grayson (the depressed one), probably because he hit a little too close to home with my own depression and self-loathing. He was still a good character, but he's not always palatable. I will mostly reference this Will Grayson throughout my review, because he's the one I most identify with, and I'll refer to him as The Depressed Will Grayson, because that is the aspect I most identify with in his character. 

I think there are a lot of great, relatable lessons in this book. Whether you are figuring out your sexuality or not, there is so much other stuff going on in this book (friendship, honesty, love, self-worth) that everyone can take something away form it.

I also liked the various representations of gay characters. Not every gay character is "gay" in the way that Tiny Cooper is gay. They aren't just stereotypes of gay people, the characters live and breath like real people. Will Grayson (the depressed one) is so different from Tiny Cooper or Gary. Each is their own person outside of their gay identity. 

Also, oh my goodness, it is impossible to not fall in love with Tiny Cooper. Even when he's being kind of a self-centered jerk, you still love him. No wonder Will Grayson (the non-depressed one) gets sucked into his orbit. 

There are some "jokes" that were made it poor taste, in my opinion, such as those regarding school shootings and self harm. But overall, the book was good.

I enjoyed the audiobook version of having two different narrators, one for each Will Grayson. It was a little difficult to remember which Will Grayson was narrating between listenings (especially once their paths crossed), but the different voices helped. 

Overall, a good read. I enjoyed it.

Book Review for Watching Mine by Alex Grayson
 
 
 
 

                      Title: Watching Mine
Series: Consumed Series 
Author: Alex Grayson
Genre: Erotic Romance 
Release Date: January 19, 2018 
 
 
 
 
 
 
My name is Nathan Reines… and I’m a voyeur. Yes, I like to watch people have sex. Witnessing the desire on their faces as they writhe in pleasure makes my blood hotter than the hottest flame. There’s nothing more erotic than seeing their bodies tighten and tremble as they balance on the edge of ecstasy. It makes my dick as hard as fucking steel.

I’ve never been tempted to have a lasting relationship with a woman—why get involved when watching from the sidelines is so fucking hot? But from the first time I watched the woman in the apartment across from mine, I knew she was different. She teases me with her soft touches and gentle caresses. She tempts me with her silent moans and sexy whimpers. She excites me, and makes me want more than I ever have before.
 
For two years, I refused to give in to my curiosity. That is, until fate took things in her own twisted hands. Now that I know what it’s like to experience Emberleigh in the flesh, there’s no damn way I could ever go back to simply watching.


This was another great read in this continuing series.I have to say that I really love this authors writing. I was glued to the story from the very first pages and never put the book down until I was finished it.This was one hot as hell read!
 
The sparks and the chemistry and those sizzling dark looks were evident from the moment their eyes met. Emberleigh and Nathan's chemistry was off the charts and if you were standing in a room with them you could feel the heat up close and personal.There is secret each one is holding back from voicing but, what neither realizes is that they have been doing a sensual dance between them for sometime now.
 
I loved the characters from the onset of the story as they both were easy to like and love.I have to mention that I love the other characters in this series as well and that I love the amazing relationship that they have with one another.Since their first meeting they were fast friends who shared similar sexual desires and play together when the need arises and are able to play with those they trust.
 
Emberleigh turned out to be my favorite character.I just loved how she just let her sexual inhibitions go when she she new someone was watching.I love how she was willing to explore a side of herself she never new existed a little bit at a time. She never really thought she would enjoy but ,realized it only enhanced her own sexual desires.And with the past she has had to overcome to put that much in a man she barely knows was a huge stepping stone for her.
I found her to be sexy as sin,love-able,bright,loving,sensual as well as sexual and you got to love her for the scarifies she has made on behalf of another.
 
Nathan OMG! that man was hot as hell!.Voyeurism was his kink!That man was sex on a stick for sure and someone to definitely make a girls panties wet just by staring right into those smoldering dark eyes of his. I loved the heat he created when with Emberleigh and most of all loved the possessiveness she brought out in him .This was definitely a first for this player.How the mighty fall...LOL If I wasn't half in love with Nathan myself already when we learned Emberleigh's secrets and he stood by her I would have been right then and there from that moment on.That man melted my heart !
 
We loved this sizzling read from cover to cover and this was one highly erotic read that has you fanning yourself more than once through out this story.
 
HOT HOT HOT
 
A recommended read to all as well as the other books in this series.This author writes great erotica reads and is one of my go to authors when I am in for one really hot and scorching read.This story moves to the keeper pile.
 
Well Done!

Watching Mine by Alex Grayson
Watching Mine (The Consumed Series Book 3) - Alex Grayson,Hot Tree Editing

Watching Mine by Alex Grayson is the Third book in "The Consumed" series. This is the story of Nathan and Emberleigh.
I have not yet the previous books in this series so for me this is a standalone book.
Nathan likes to watch people in intimate encounters....he is labeled a voyeur. A few years ago he happens to see his neighbor out of his window having a sexual encounter. Nathan from then on watched her for a few years although he didn't see her bring back a man to her apartment again. But every Tuesday he gets a show from her that he enjoys. But when he happens to meet his neighbor, Emberleigh he finds that he wants to be more active in his encounters with her. Nathan is no longer happy to just watch her from a far. Emberleigh has some darkness in her past and being with Nathan helps to bring that out to deal with it. This book does have a few twist and one that I found hard to put down. I will be looking for more book by this author.

Dark and gritty
Reclaim Me (The Jaded Series Book 2) - Alex Grayson,Toj Publishing,Karen McAndrews

Mac and Mia's story is a second chance romance that was a long time coming and for a small town, Jaded Hollow is certainly full of secrets. While ten years going by without anyone finding out what broke this pair up requires a bit of suspension of belief, Mac and Mia are so good together that you can't help but root for them. The story is well-written and the author has a writing style that quickly pulls you into the lives of the people of Jaded Hollow. From Bailey's continuing to come out of her protective shell, to Nick dealing with his loss and Andrew's quirky, fun-loving flirtations, even the secondary characters are endearing and interesting, making this reader want to know more about them. Mac and Mia's journey back to each other is filled with angst that is quite dark in its nature, but with love and trust, there comes a ray of light in that darkness. Reclaim Me is more than just a romance, it's a tale of family, love, loss, and finally hope.
