Jared's Fulfillment
Jared's Fulfillment - Riley Hart

“How did I survive without you?”

The truth was, that’s all either of us had done without each other—survived. Now, we lived.

 

First let me say that this is not a story for every reader, just like BDSM is not something every person understands or participates in.  But what we can do as readers is be understanding, become more knowledgeable and push ourselves outside of our comfort zones at times and see that what may not be right for some is right for others. It is what makes us each unique.  Nothing should be wrong that feels right.

 

Riley Hart as an author went there with Jared and Kieran’s journey.  And after reading her note to her Readers at the beginning of this book, I gained even more respect for her as an author.  She took on something so different from anything else she had ever written.  She stepped outside of the normal MM Romance parameters or broke a few “romance rules”, as she states, and that takes such strength to do so.

 

“I followed my heart in this book. I stayed true to how the story came to me, no matter where it took me. Love is a universal emotion but there are no rules to it either. No matter how many people experience it, no one experiences it that same. As long as it’s consensual and between adults there’s no wrong way to love. This is their way.” – Riley Hart

 

What transpires within these pages is quite beautiful.  It is a journey.  It is discovery.  And while some acts in this story are still so outside of my realm of understanding and comfort zone, Riley did so with a commitment to these characters and what they needed. 

 

I am not about to spoil anything about this journey…it is one that should you choose to take on, do so with an open mind…with love and understanding.  In the end, I think you too will fall in love with these amazing men and their story.

 

I do desperately want more in this series and hope that we eventually get more of Marco and as Dana suggested on FB, perhaps Charlie’s story as well.

On Davis Row
On Davis Row - NR Walker

You get through life trying to be invisible. You think no one’ll notice you don’ read or write too well if you just hide in th’ background. Disappear. You think if they don’ notice you, they won’t ever know. Well guess what?” He slid his hand up to my neck and ran his thumb over my jaw. I couldn’t breathe. “I see you, Clinton Davis. I see you.”

 

And see him he did.

 

NR Walker has once again created such a touching and beautifully developed couple in CJ and Noah and a story that is so unique and quintessential Walker. My goodness, she even brought the act of hugging to all new heights.

 

My eyes burned with tears and I had to suck back a breath. I could feel myself about to cry and I forced myself to stop. But then he slid his hand around my neck and pulled me against him. In that safe and warm place I’d only ever known with him.
A hug. A simple fucking hug. His warm arms, gentle and kind touch, that I could feel sewing up the gaping holes in my heart, in my soul.
It was just a hug, but it wasn’t. It was so much more.
It was human touch. It was kindness and understanding. It was reassuring and soul-mending.
I clung to him, like a fucking kid. Like if I let go, I’d fall apart. And he held me, just held me without question, without judgement.

 

 

This is by no means a sex filled book. But the acts of love and commitment are far from absent. This relationship is just beautiful and the compassionate nature of Noah and the way Walker explores the lives and perceptions of those on Davis Row are quite compelling. I'd be lying if I said I never had these same perceptions about someone. Terribly accurate honestly and just sad when you fail to see things from a completely different perspective. I mean...

 

 

Yes, I thought of this often. It took someone with the wisdom of Atticus to see the truth that was Clinton and that person was Noah. This story was so well developed and not rushed at all. I loved Noah's "rule" and how this only heightened the sexual tension between them. Phew.

 

And I absolutely loved the epilogue here. It was so them.

 

He was everything I never knew I needed. He was everything I wanted, longed for, dreamed of, and never thought I could have.

 

Definitely another of my favorites for 2017 and one I look forward to revisiting time and time again.

The Rules
The Rules - Jamie Fessenden

He couldn’t imagine being with anyone else, or even with just Boris or just Thomas. He needed both of them. They interconnected like the pieces of a puzzle—a wonderful puzzle with a complicated picture full of books and exotic foods and paintings and beautiful naked men… and lots and lots of naughty bits.

 

At the end of the year, when I reflect on what books have been the best of the best, it will be those books that I still remember scenes, remember characters, and while I may not be able to remember every detail it will be those books that are different enough and touching enough that they have grabbed hold and not let go. 


I am pretty certain that “The Rules” we will one of those books.  What I love about this is that it is not your typical romance and these are certainly not your typical men.  There is absolutely no character I have ever read about like Boris.  He is undoubtedly one of a kind.

 

And like all MMM romances, this is not a relationship that can be easily written. And for me there are not many that work really really well.  This one, for me, did.  And I think a lot of that not only had to do with Boris but in the complete and total honest and quite blunt actions these men take.  And the fact that jealousy DOES come into play was realistic to say the least.

 

There are some MMM books where one of the men makes statements like, “Why would I be jealous?  I mean, I know he loves me.”  Do you really??  I say horseshit, honestly. If you do not experience jealousy in regards to your loved one then for me it comes across more that you just don’t really care.  Caring is an emotion, jealousy is an emotion, claiming someone as yours and wanting no one else to touch what is yours is an emotion.  And what I love about this story is their methods and conversations to deal with these emotions in a positive way.  There is TRUST that is built between them.  There are boundaries and rules and ways of touching one another that is done in such a way that it forges this bond between them that is built quite beautifully together as three.

 

There is not much I want to really say about them for fear of saying too much and spoiling this quite humorous, touching and rather emotional journey.

 

**Highly Recommended**

Pale faces…

Blank eyes…

A face devoid of any emotion because the one I took the journey with no longer lived and walked beside me with the darkest secret a soul could house.

That was what hell looked like. I knew because I’d been there before, only to emerge from it more broken than I’d been going in, and alone. I couldn’t forget that. The first and only other time it had happened, I had emerged from the most corrupt part of my being—alone.

 

Gaaaaaahhhh.  I fucking love this book!!!

Oh God, this is crazy… And even though I held the power to stop what was happening, there was no way I was uttering my safe word. I wanted to see how far he’d go, and he was trusting that I could handle it. I wouldn’t let him down, and what was more, I…wanted it. The pain. The pleasure I knew would eventually come. Use me
