Heaven Can't Wait by Pamela Clare
Heaven Can't Wait (I-Team, #1.5) - Pamela Clare

Will and Lissy are only two weeks shy of getting married when she proposes a wager. They won't have sex until after the wedding, and the one who begs first, loses.


A premise that would've been cute and fun if it weren't for the reason behind the bet. As Will said, Lissy didn't want to be romantic, she didn't fully trust him thanks to her ice-queen mother. The true reason behind the "bet" and the fact the idiot of the heroine almost ruined a great relationship (she would've accomplished the fact if it wasn't for the perfectly placed scare just before the end, which magically solved everything) ruined any enjoyment I could've mustered in reading this.

The other characters were great; the hero, the team from the Denver Independent, there were quite a few funny dialogues between Will and his friends, and between Tessa and the other girls thanks to an "incident" at Will and Lissy's house, while the heroine was an idiot, her mother was a bitch...And the rest of it was sex (pretty hot sex, don't get me wrong) and loads of sexual frustration.

I could've been much better.

An important book but repetitive.
Why We Can't Wait - Martin Luther King Jr.,Jesse Jackson

In light of the recent holiday it seemed like it would be a good idea to read this (it was also recommended to me). The reader learns more about non-violence, an expansion on the title on why black people can't wait, about Dr. King's thoughts and reasoning, plus the Letter from a Birmingham Jail.

 

I don't want to rehash the material since it's worth reading. And while I'm glad I read it, I will say that I agree with other reviewers that it's repetitive. It was good to read more about the thoughts and reasoning. It was also helpful to understand the time, effort, labor, planning, etc. that goes into these methods. In today's world a lot of people find it easy to sign an online petition or maybe go to one protest they read about on Facebook.

 

But the methods that were used in the fight for Civil Rights were more in depth, more detailed and required a lot more work. This is something that is perhaps lost on today's generation and this was a good reminder of the history and the work that we should not forget.

 

It's a relatively short book and it might not be for everyone. But it's important to read and remains highly relevant today.

Heaven Can't Wait - Eli Easton

 

Wow!  At 60 pages this packed an absolutely emotional punch. Eli Easton has a gift! I'm so overwhelmed and shocked by how captivating and beautiful this was. 

 

I hate giving too much away on this one but it's a MUST read!!  And one I will most definitely revisit many times in the future.

Heaven Can't Wait - Eli Easton

If Chuck hooked up with Rachel, Kevin would have the room to himself. Mission-fucking-accomplished.

Review: "Heaven Can't Wait" by Eli Easton
Heaven Can't Wait - Eli Easton

"Day by day, Chuck started to open up to Kevin. And day by day, Kevin inched a little further toward a tentative friendship with the big guy. It was like worming your way into a warm sleeping bag on a frigid night - and doing it slowly enough to not wake up the grizzly bear that was sleeping next to it."

 

Wow, this was just beautiful!

 

Leave it to Eli Easton to write such a moving, heartwarming and bittersweet hurt/comfort gem with two totally lovable MCs in only 61 (!) pages. Everything was just so touching and well-written, I still have the biggest smile on my face.

 

 

Oh, and I simply LOVED Brian's choice at the end (I might have teared up a little).

 

I would have given this novella 5 stars, but I need a little bit more closure as far as Chuck is concerned, especially how his family and friends will react when he comes out.

 

But nevertheless, this was another win for me from this outrageously talented author.
