The sweetest taboo.
Too Close To Love: Loving, Book 1 - M.A.... Too Close To Love: Loving, Book 1 - M.A. Innes

This was recommended to me by a friend and they assured me it was not as naughty as it sounded. I was sceptical but I trust them. Then I read the blurb and cursed my friend because clearly they don’t know me. So first I was like Loretta on Ronny ~

Then I started reading and the story had such a sweet tooth, two bros realise the loving they have for one another is real and not just because at 14 the younger bro was nearly kidnapped and the older bro saved him as he fought the bad guy off. They each think that the other bro is the hero and then because of the nightmares, and because a therapist told their parents to let them, they start sleeping together and they’re still doing it 4 years later. Honies, let me tell all, I was sucked in like a lollipop in a celebrity’s mouth.

Ohemgee, they say the cutest things to each otther: “I love you. You know that, right? And not like—you know…like regular.” My eyes teared up and I reached over and put my hand on his leg. I could feel his body vibrating, and I knew how hard it had been to say it. “I know. I love you, too. And who cares what regular is?” Me to Kevin and Jeremy: Mebe the authorities? But they’re such downers, you know? Because, for real, I don’t care. I want to see how you two adorkables make it in the big bad world with your swoony sweetness.  “No, like actually hold you. Like…” This time I blushed. “Like touch you and stuff. Not just sit on the couch all PG and shit.” “Like PG-13 or R?” Kevin grinned, and I could tell he was liking how dysfunctional I was becoming. Me to you: Totally dysfunctional but we’ve established that I don’t care so keep going with your love of the word like and your PG R rating.

Kevin. Jeremy. You may be incestuous but, you guys, you’re SO totes romantically adorkable!  People always hoped their secret crush would want them too one day—Jeremy had made me watch a thousand sappy old movies with that storyline—but it never happened in real life. But this time…it did.

And that Jeremy, he’s such a planner~ he has money saved and he’s organised college out of town and their scholarships, plus their own apartment for when the ‘rents go bananas. Speaking of the ‘rents, they’re suspicious and keep making a now 18 year old Kevin go back to a new therapist to catch 20 year old Jeremy out as a perv. Me to the parents: You’re pretty sick, Chubbs.  

 

Once Kevin does the Salome towel unveil it’s game over. EV-erything is about that towel drop. “I loved hearing how much you enjoyed it when I dropped my towel. Did you like seeing my ass on display just for you?” AND~ “You were so hot, you little tease.” He arched up again and pressed his hard cock against my leg. “When you dropped that towel and your ass was right there, I thought I’d explode. I was afraid you’d see how hard my dick was.”

Jeremy and Kevin sneak out of home, permanently, and their dad is pretty indifferent about his sons sneaking off for good. The new therapist is weirdly cool with it, as in here’s a number for a therapist near the new campus who doesn’t mind abnormal relationships. Say whaaaat?! Too Close to Love made me laugh and I buddy read it partly with a friend. That was fun and waaay better than being squicked the hell out. This book is the sweetest frickin taboo story of all time, I have decay now, but I liked it as a cutie-pie read not so much a sexy one. Whad’yaknow, my friend isn’t in trouble after all. I won’t sic Cher on them. Eh. Mebe I will. 

 

Quick  recap – Kevin and Jeremy are bros who are dreamily and sweetly in love with each other and they run away together, Jeremy is the most planful person alive, they cutely boff each and it ends. Fin. Wrap it up for me Loretta~ 

 

ma i love him awful gif

Well, that was excruciating.
I Spy a Duke (Covert Heiresses Book 1) - Erica Monroe

I've never had much luck with romance novels but I liked the idea of melding romance with the spy genre. A historical one to boot? Sounds like it could be fun!

 

Vivan Loren is a governess of one of the wealthiest families. But she's there to find out what happened to her brother and to get information for her mysterious boss. Enter James Spencer, the Duke and the head of British Intelligence. Their paths cross, they realize they can help each other...which involves getting married.

 

Cue shenanigans, danger, spy training, spying, romance, sex, etc. You know how it goes.

 

Unfortunately what could have been a grand fantastic romp was just terrible to read. The writing is just not very good. Neither character is interesting and quite frankly the entire cast is boring. The plot is somewhat predictable and I'm not really a fan of the romance being the thing that holds the book together. 

 

I thought this might be a good take for me to try but the romance genre remains elusive for me. I bought it and regret doing so.

The Man Who Loved Too Much - Book 1: Archipelago - John Rachel,Cassandra Nutterknoll,Archimedes Delusio III

Billy Green certainly had an interesting life growing up which is what this book is about. Taking Billy from about the age of four until almost his junior year in college. His mother doted on him and his father was absolutely horrible to him. I could not believe some of the things that man said to Billy.

Billy was certainly funny in his ways of looking at things. I really enjoyed reading about Billy. There were a few times when it slowed down and I had to skip a few pages. However, for the most part, this was a very entertaining read. The descriptions and phrases used were hilarious at times. I pretty much sped through the pages, laughing most of the way, until Billy got to college and met Natalie. Then it sort of became redundant and rather lackluster. The ending . . .

Yeah, that's about it was. Then I realized there are more Billy books. If the rest of his time with Natalie is as unexciting as it was in this book, I don't think I have the desire to carry on. However, until that point, I was a huge Billy fan.

Thanks to Literary Vagabond Books and Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

More Than Want You (More Than Words Book 1) - Shayla Black

More Than Want You (More Than Words Book 1) - Shayla Black 

 

*3.5 STARS*

 

I liked this one but I couldn't wrap my head around the plot, and then the end when EVERYTHING is revealed.  It just made me want to sigh.  Add in the psycho dad, the half-siblings...It was all just too much for me.  And I had to ding it one half star.

 

I did enjoy Keely and Britta, not so much did I enjoy Max and Griff's stupid feud.  I'm glad things worked out in the end but all the middle stuff got to be over the top for me.  And it seemed like all the men in the story were giant D-bags.

 

I will continue on with the series because I need to know what happens next.

Audio Book Review: Gilded Cage
Gilded Cage (A Canary Club Story Book 1)... Gilded Cage (A Canary Club Story Book 1) - Sherry D. Ficklin

*I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.

Masie is the daughter of a powerful boot-legger, Dutch, and returns home from the private boarding school when she receives a call her father wanting her home for a family emergency. She finds there are a few major problems and differences since she left. Her mother's not doing well, mentally unstable. Father's business is on the rocks, standing a chance of falling apart. And the boy she had come to love before she left is now her father's hired hit man. Masie is determined to make a difference in the dangerous, dark illegal work those she loves lives in.

It was great to hear different voices created for each character along with getting the feel of the era they live in. The personality and attitude comes through clear with Meghan's narration. By the end, Meghan was Masie's voice for me, along with other characters. I was stunned at the beginning of the story as Meghan seemed to start off with a faster pace than I expected. But I took a breath, rewound, and started over again. This time I slipped into the story easily with Meghan voicing the characters.

Speakeasies, flapper dresses, alcohol, gangsters, danger, love, and more all in one place.

Masie is mixed up in the dangerous world of her fathers. She didn't realize how explosive her home was until she was sent away, something her mother wanted so she didn't see the life style they were living. Masie has been gone for three years and returning seems as though everything is natural, but it gives her pauses as well.

Masie lives the inside life of being a daughter of a boot-legger. It's not all the fun and glamour people think it is. Masie has to give things up, even people she loves, to carry on. This life is one that's not easy and she always has to be aware of what she's saying and who's around her. Masie is reminded that she's a bit of light and hope in the lives of the men around her - her father, brother, and the boy that she's loved. Masie will not let this life beat her or those she loves. She's determined to save someone, even if it's just herself. But she'll help the family all she can along the way.

There is a romance here. Masie and Vinny. They grew up together as her father took Vinny in when he was abandoned by his mother at a young age. Their relationship started to grow into more before she left, but neither acted on it, and now she sees it is more. Vinny's the hired hand that is dangerous when sent after people, but he's also the bad boy I can't help but love. He feels as he needs Masie in his life, to keep from falling down a very slippery, dark slope.

Masie finds herself on a new path she never expected to take. I'm worried though. There has to be some serious trouble in Masie's future, and with the warning Vinny gave her... will someone get hurt or die in the future books? This is not a cake walk in this business.

The beginning of what seems like a very good new series. Oh how things are going to change for Masie... I can't wait to see all the trouble and excitement she lives through!
