ARC Review: Adder And Willow (The Rowan Harbor Cycle #6) by Sam Burns
Adder And Willow - Sam Burns

This series just keeps getting better, with every new book the author releases.

Adder And Willow is the 6th book in the series, and the third book of the 2nd trilogy, in which we catch up with Fletcher and Conner, whose relationship is still growing.

Now Conner's mother and step-father are coming to visit, and Fletcher is dreading meeting them. Not because he doesn't want to meet his boyfriend's parents, but because he's a terrible liar, and he knows that he's no good at keeping secrets. And the supernatural parts of himself and Rowan Harbor must be kept secret from outsiders.

Fletcher is also having meetings with Oak, the Dryad, who have been working with Fletcher to continue the training his mother couldn't. It is during one of these meetings that Fletcher finds out something he may have already sort of known, but that might put his future with Conner in danger.

And, as if that isn't enough on his plate, he also stumbles across two strangers in a stranded car, a mother and son, who are intrinsically linked to Rowan Harbor.

I just adore this series. The characters are complex and fully fleshed out, and each one is so different. There is never any confusing one character with another, because they all have different personalities. Fletcher may be one of my favorites, because while he's timid to some extent, and not assertive, he has much more steel in his backbone than he realizes. 

Conner is still growing into his new powers (you'll have to read the previous book to find out about that), and he's going to be tested here.

What also stands out about the characters is how they're all connected - not only because of their supernatural powers, but also because they feel like family, and they treat each other that way. They stick together, they stick up for each other, and they work together for the common good. 

The book is alternately humorous and serious. There is action, there is danger, and there are sweet moments between Fletcher and Conner that really cement their relationship. 

This series cannot be read out of order - each subsequent book builds on its predecessor - however, each book does end in a satisfying way. There are no cliffhangers. 

The writing style of this author really works for me, and I flew through the pages.

Lash by Sam Crescent
Lash - Sam Crescent

Yesterday I was sure to leave Bikerville but somehow I'm still here reading these crazy biker books, rolling my eyes, and thinking about my TBR pile. The problem is, I want to read something good, but I'm not ready for anything serious yet. 

Lash was a watered down version of Reaper's Property. There were moments when I liked the storyline but everything was too vague to really enjoy it. The romance wasn't believable because I didn't see connection between Angel and Lash. Lash was too bossy and controlling. Angel wasn't very bright and everything felt too simplified. Even if I'm not ready to read more serious literature, I want my smut to be high quality.

Promise Me by Cora Brent
Promise Me - Cora Brent

Great first half. The topic was interesting and the horrors Promise survived well written. I liked her character so much and couldn't wait to read the next chapter. I also liked Gray a lot.
Somewhere at the 50% mark Promise and Gray had sex, after that it wasn't the same. Suddenly they were having sex all the time. And Promise acted like she had years of experience. There was no hesitation, no fumbling, no instructions from Gray. How was it possible? Maybe there's something wrong with me. I actually like biker romances and I'm always looking for the next great story, but the speed the main characters hit the bedroom is killing me. And the way these bikers turn girls with little experience into "everything-goes party girls" is just so out of reality.
After everything Promise went through, is it possible to recover in 24 days and have a healthy relationship with a man? I don't think so.

Affliction by River Savage
Affliction - River Savage

This was so much better than the first book. Before I knew it, I had read over 70 % of the story and couldn't stop. 
The storyline was heartbreaking but beautiful, the exciting parts kept me at the edge of my seat, and there was more about the family and club members in this story.

Sy was an amazing hero. At first he seemed such an asshole but reading about his past and how he helped Holly, I fell in love. Holly was so spunky at the beginning of the series, so it was difficult to see her struggle, but on the other hand I couldn't put the book down because I needed to know what would happen next. Holly and Sy were amazing together. They took time to get to know each other and their main concern wasn't ripping each others clothes off. They did that too, of course, but hot sex was just part of the story, not the story itself. 
I'm not sure I can explain it well enough. Let's just say, that I read Nix and Kadence's story a few days ago and I've already forgotten big part of it. But I remember every scene about Holly and Sy. Now after reading Holly and Sy's story, I'm sure I won't forget it. Their story made me laugh, sigh, blush, and cry. I enjoyed it so much. Can't wait for Jesse's story.

Incandescent by River Savage
Incandescent - River Savage

Well, the story wasn't very exciting - a lot of sex scenes, not enough romance, and overboard "chemistry" between the main characters. Every time those two met, Nix's jeans were suddenly too tight and there was always a puddle where Kadence had been sitting or standing. At first it was hilarious but then it became annoying. The end had more action and the story became quite interesting. Hopefully it's a good base for Sy and Holly's story.
Overall it fulfilled its purpose - I was reading a horror story at the same time and had no nightmares thanks to this oversexed book.
